When we meet others, is it beyond us to be the first one to offer friendship and compassion? If we are to achieve a harmonious planet, we must seek first the love in others hearts. It is easy to be the one looking for the flaws in others. It is easy to be a critic. We must search each day to understand our we in our space and time can bring the human family together. This is the greatest goal of all. This is my peace offering to you. Will you be my family?
People often associate self-love with narcissism. They devalue themselves in order to avoid this sin. Modesty is a beautiful virtue and so is kindness. However, loving yourself is the most beautiful virtue of all. To know that you are worthy of divinity. To know that you are divinity. That you are everything and nothing at the same time. Without self-love it is impossible to help others. We help others to help ourselves and we help ourselves so that we maybe able to help others.
The feminist movement was the one of most deserved acts of civil disobedience. The female, mother energy had become bastardized in the intellect of the modern man. He no longer looked for wisdom from his partner and life had become solitary and isolated for both energies. Few carried in their hearts the knowledge that all are one. The time of the ending of duality is upon all the children of Gaia. Mother Earth no longer wishes to be a place of hate, fear and conflict. In this time, men feel as if they can control this ultimate woman of creation and bring her back into their control. The highest irony is that she can never be property of anything other than existence herself. In her divine nature, the shape of the earth will reform. The mortal men will try and ruin her great metamorphosis. Instead of holding pity or hatred for these foolish children of Gaia, laugh as their inconvenient truth comes to find it’s own reckoning in their epiphany.
While the female presence is gaining ground where once it had lost its pristine position in the process of spirituality and political organization, many representing those energies throughout this lifetime feel as they have been indefinitely wronged. They struggle daily to live with the fate left to them by their ill-conceived ancestors. Playing into this illusion of separation and segregation not only holds back the female spirit but the spirit of all mankind. Release those deep suited angers and tensions through this turbulent time and your efforts will not go unrewarded. All of life is one and one life is the all. “The white line only serves to divide myself from me.”
I have recently become pregnant. Throughout all of this, people have been telling me what to do and what not to do. Not really knowing if they have the best advice or not. What I’ve discovered is that their is no replacement for what the human body wants. Many of the things I have done correctly, I have done because that’s what I knew I had to do at the time. If something will likely make me sick, then my body will automatically reject it.
Our first moments of the day set the precedence for the mood of the rest of our waking hours. When you wake up plan a few moments for meditation. If you are more familiar with meditating, then this can be done within your commute to your daily responsibilities. Starting your day from a peaceful place can offer the ability to transform your daily life.
The sun is a source of power and energy. It has been used through history in several religious traditions. Today, go out in the sun, find a peaceful space and give yourself 15 minutes for a daylight meditation. Most people concentrate on learning meditation in the dark. Meditation can take place in a brightly light space.
Envision the sun as the cleansing light. Feel as it purifies your body on a cellular level. Take in the vitamins and necessary nutrients this great life sources generously gives.
Just as a prism refracts many colors, our hearts refract many emotions. Realize that you are not these emotions. These emotions are a state of your existence. These emotions can flow through you without consuming you. Life is much easier when your concentration is focused on merely being. To obtain the observer state an individual must look past personal interjections and opinions without passing judgements.
All judgements are relative to outside forces and experiences that do no necessarily attribute merit to the current situation. The ability to find oneself in a born again innocent state.
Some people see wealth as money, some see it as health, some see it as an attitude, some see it as how much love from others you can obtain. I see wealth as an internal development of character.
And reaching for those stars.
Sometimes in life all of the dividends of decisions can add up to make an enormous whole. Overwhelmed and frustrated by the ever growing demand place upon us by our current world economy people are confronted with negative emotions. The teachings of many shamans can show that repression of angry, fear-driven or hurt emotions can only cause a permanent scar to wear on the metaphorical sleeve.
Look not to holding in these feelings. Let yourself express them. Let them wash through you and out like a wave. The further under the water you submerge your body, the less the friction of the currents will move you about.
Once they have past, you can look out onto new waters. Your perception makes up a greater toll of the how the world treats you than can be imagined.
Sometimes in life are remembered for how they touch our soul. Love is flowing through every moment and cell of your body. Remember a time in your life when someone deeply touched you with their love. The power of the joy they gave to you. It would nice to live in a world where people focused their time on how they can make others have more tender moments than harsh realities.
Every action has a reaction so what follows the reaction?
Some Native American tribes taught to chase and confront ones fear in their dreams. You can practice this method with visualization. What do you dread most in life? Think of it and come up with a comical solution to the confrontation. This will make it much easier to face the challenges in life as they confront you each day. Fear is nothing more than the misunderstanding of love.
Once each day do something that makes you feel more tranquil. The more you begin to become comfortable with yourself, the more comfortable you will be with the world.
The sun provides nutrients and also energy for life. Mediating in the open daylight can re-engerize you instead of allowing you to feel your normal tired self.
The egg is the symbol of birth and rebirth. The buddhist says that man dies every second and is reborn again. Rebirth does not have to mean death or religious change. It can mean reformatting a thought structure or perhaps a behavior pattern. It is desirable to have a life that constantly renews itself. Meditation is a trigger to help aid in new rebirth in your life.
Evil is the misunderstanding of love.
Relax. Often people say that their thoughts overwhelm them too much when they’re trying to mediate. A simple exercise I use to prevent this is to let the thoughts come. Don’t stop them. Also don’t hold on to them. Allow them to flow through your mind like a running stream in and out and eventually there are no thoughts left to flow.
