Wisdom Emotion







Wisdom


Wisdom, the worker of all things, taught me, for in her is an understanding spirit, holy, one only, manifold, subtle, lively clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt loving the thing that is good, ready to do good, kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, pure and most subtle.




For Wisdom is more moving than any motion., she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a clearness from the glory of the Almighty, therefore, can nothing defiled enter into her. For she is the brightness of the everlasting Light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of His goodness.




And, being but one, Wisdom can do all things, yet remaining in herself, she maketh all things new, and in all ages entering into holy souls. For she is more beautiful than the sun, and above all, the order of the stars. Being compared with the Light, she is found before it.




He that loveth her, loveth life. And they that seek her early, shall be filled with joy. He that holdeth her fast, shall inherit glory, and wheresoever she entereth, the Lord will bless. They that serve her, shall minister to the Holy One, and them that love her, the Lord doth love.

Poetry Emotion

Prince of Peace




Born in Bethlehem,
come out of Egypt.
Be called a Nazarene,
and be a king with no place
to lay His head.

He painted no pictures,
yet some of the finest painters
received their inspiration from Him.

He wrote no poetry,
yet the world's greatest poets
were inspired by Him.

He composed no music,
yet composers of their highest perfection
of symphonies were composed in His praise.

Every sphere of human greatness
has been enriched by this humble
carpenter of Nazareth.

In infancy He startled a king,
in boyhood He puzzled doctors.

In manhood He walked upon the billows,
and hushed the sea to sleep.

He healed the multitudes without medicine,
and made no charge for His services.

He never wrote a book,
yet not all the libraries of a single country,
could hold the books that could be written about Him.

He never wrote a song,
yet He has furnished the theme,
of more songs than all songwriters combined.

He never founded a college,
yet all the schools together cannot boast,
of as many students as He has.

Great of many have come and gone,
yet He lives on.

Death could not destroy Him,
the grave could not hold Him.

We shall be forever with Him,
or without Him.

The Four Yogas

Everyone has feelings, so everyone can be on the path of feelings. The same is true for thinking, acting, and being. So, the vision of Yoga is simply that Unity is possible for anyone, starting from wherever you happen to be. Unity is secretly present in every moment in daily life. Nothing can happen to me that is outside the one reality., nothing is wasted or random in the Cosmic design.

In the Vedic tradition, each person can choose four paths that arise from feeling, thinking, acting, and being. Each path is called a Yoga, the Sanskrit word for "union," because Unity - merging with one reality - was the goal.

Over the ages, the four Yogas have come to define specific paths that suit the kind of temperament a seeker has, although in truth you can follow several or all at once:

Bhakti Yoga., leads to Unity by loving God. Karma Yoga., leads to Unity through selfless action. Gyana Yoga., leads to Unity through Knowledge. Raj Yoga., leads to Unity through meditation and renunciation.

It's not necessary to think of the four paths as being Eastern. These Yogas were the original seeds, the means that brought Unity within reach. Literally translated, the fourth path, Raj Yoga, means "the royal way to union." What makes it royal is a belief that meditation transcends the other three paths. But the fourth path is also inclusive: By following it you are actually following all four at once. Your meditations go directly to the essence of your being. That essence is what love of God, selfless action, and Knowledge are trying to teach.

The Dreamers








They are the architects of greatness.
Their vision lies within their souls.
They never see the mirages of Fact, but peer beyond
the veils and mists of doubt and pierce
the walls of unborn Time.

Makers of empire, they have fought for
bigger things than crowns and higher
seats than thrones.

They are the Argonauts, the seekers of the priceless fleece--The Truth.
Through all the ages they have heard the voice of destiny call to them from the unknown vasts.

Their brains have wrought all human miracles.
In lace of stone their spires stab the Old World's skies and
with their golden crosses kiss the sun.

They are the chosen few the blazers of the way, who never wear a doubt's bandage on their eyes.
Who starve and chill and hurt, but hold to courage and
to hope, because they know that there is always proof of truth for them who try ~ that only cowardice and lack of faith can keep the seeker from his chosen goal, but if his heart be strong and if he dream enough and dream it hard enough, he can attain, no matter where men failed before.

Walls crumble and the empires fall.
The tidal wave sweeps from the sea and tears a fortress from its rocks.
The rotting nations drop off Time's bough, and only things the dreamers make live on.

They are the Eternal Conquerors their vassals are the years.

♥ ♥ ♥ ~ Herbert Kaufmam ~ ♥ ♥ ♥

Watch your thoughts, they become your words
Watch your words, they become your actions
Watch your actions, they become your habits
Watch your habits, they become your character
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny!

What is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing?
It's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye.
But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.

Paradigm Shift









The lifting veil-consciousness shift - paradigm shift-raising of vibration.. evolution..

All these words are symbols, within the quantum world.. all things that come to “be” are an accumulation of energy particles..

The physical world.. it is created through the global consciousness of mankind, simply put, all of our human thoughts, and actions make up this physical world, we are of one body, all of our individual energy fields making up this one body of energy.

Most of mankind, are not aware of this, they are caught within the dream..

This time in our human evolution is a shift in consciousness, we as a race are becoming more conscious. The very vibration of our individual beings are accelerating.. this is taking place due to the fact that the veil that hangs over the global mind of humanity is thinning, its lifting. This means that humans will be and are waking up from the dream.. the dream of separation.. the dream of being a limited separated fleshly human and nothing more..

All it takes for a shift in consciousness to take place is for one individual aspect of consciousness to “realign” and it will cause a rippling affect to travel through the entire being of consciousness we are.. an awakening.

This shift is being pushed along by seen and unseen agents, we are all a part of this shift.. every thing that is, every thing that was, every thing that will be, all of it together at the same instant.. each thing holding a different frequency.. all of it together as one.. all of it together, causing this shift to occur..

As this shift takes hold, the veil will continue to lift. We as a species will be more exposed and influenced by the beings of energy that exist within the fourth dimension. All these “beings” they are composed of energy at their bases as we all are.. not all of these beings though have love in their hearts, they feed off the energy created by human beings. Your every thought and emotion creates an unseen little string, what is being done with this energy If this energy was risen through a human vessel, they would be transformed,.. In consciousness, vibration, then that is reflected within their fleshly experience, including their physical world..

Pain, terror,.. either physical or intellectual causes the veil over our individual minds to lift.. pain, it pushes us within ourselves and it is within ourselves that the highest of truth lay, that is why many people experience an awakening of spirit after a near death in their lives or the lose of a loved one., the pain causes a tear in their surrounding veil.. altering the frequency of the subatomic particles that they consist of.. they become more conscious, vibrating on a higher frequency.

Pain is only a “bad” thing if we view or perceive it that way., when a woman is pregnant, she experiences pain to birth her child.. the pain a part of pushing the child into this world.. the child too would feel physical and emotional pain as its being pushed through the birthing channel into this physical world, this pain, even though we may not like it.. we understand it and accept it as a gift because through the pain, a new beautiful child is born to us, I have to say here from my own heart that the suffering of humanity., I can not call it a good thing or a beautiful thing., Every moment of every day a child is sexually and physically abused.. right this second, world wide there are millions of people starving.. right this very moment, countless numbers of people are being beaten, killed, abused.. right this moment, there are many women in the world who have no food to feed her children.. all that pain and suffering., I can see that its all leading us to the destination that it is meant to but if we are of one body.. why is so much of our body suffering? I know the answer to this. All things are as they are meant to be., All of it already seen..

Pain transforms us. We are beings of energy that create.. our thoughts create.. our emotions fuel for our thoughts.. pain is an intense emotion.. our thoughts during our times of pain have great power.. as the veil lifts and more individuals become more conscious and hold an increased vibration.. they as an individual will experience more and more Synchrodestiny. They will experience their inner thoughts being manifesting faster within their world, the veil lifting causes us to vibrate faster. The faster we vibrate.. the more energy held within our core.. our very cells become magnetized. The faster we vibrate, the faster we can manifest things into our physical experience.

We have to guard against being sucked into another persons dream because as the veil lifts and pain, fear and confusion continue to build, many humans will go crazy. We will have to be protected against this., not only physically but energetically.

As the veil lifts, more and more people will experience pain., the physical world will be stripped from us.. either that, or we will have to conform to the powers in play around us.

This world, it is not our true home.. it is a place of darkness, lies and suffering.

As the veil lifts from the 3D world, we will be opened to the fourth dimension. I’m using these terms to draw a picture. The fourth dimension, the spirit world, within this dimension.. there are many beings. Conscious beings.. humans cannot see them most of the time. The veil stops them from seeing them but they are all around us at every moment.

This is now the time to become more conscious. To increase our vibrations.. to be weaned from our dependency on the physical world. Because the physical world, it is falling apart. It is meant to. The downfall of this world will create such pain and chaos that humans will either have to adapt or they will die., to go back to the dust they are made of. But this should not scare us at all. Not if we know who and what we are.

We are beings of energy. We are not dependant on the physical air we breath to live. We are not dependant on the physical food we eat to sustain life. We do not need any thing other then what is already found within us! The dependency we experience concerning these things is programming.. lies to our true state of being.

How you experience this shift, is how it is meant to be. Every thing that will be, has already been done even before we came to be in this lifetime..


May peace be with you as you walk through the next steps in you're journey..

Love, courage, peace and blessings ~



Life is a field of unlimited possibilities. ~ Deepak Chopra

Poetry Emotion





Gather us in, Thou Love that fillest all;
Gather our rival faiths within Thy fold;
Rend each man’s temple veil, and bid it fall,
That we may know that Thou hast been of old.

Gather us in—we worship only Thee;
In varied names we stretch a common hand;
In diverse forms a common soul we see;
In many ships we seek one spirit land.

Thine is the mystic life great India craves;
Thine is the Parsee’s sin-destroying beam;
Thine is the Buddhist’s rest from tossing waves;
Thine is the empire of vast China’s dream.

Thine is the Roman’s strength without his pride;
Thine is the Greek’s glad world without its graves;
Thine is Judea’s law with love beside,
The truth that censures and the grace that saves.

Some seek a Father in the heav’ns above;
Some ask a human image to adore;
Some crave a spirit vast as life and love;
Within Thy mansions we have all and more.

Experiencing the Truth of Being




Are you aware of a seemingly elusive feeling deep inside you that feels very good? It is like an inner smile, with warm light and radiance. When we open up and relax into that inner feeling, we feel as though everything is right with the world. And that we already have anything we could reasonably want or need. It is a feeling of a deep contentment, a profound fulfillment, and an exalted sense of well being. Some say that being firmly established in that most excellent inner feeling is the ultimate purpose of life. An ancient Eastern proverb says: Contentment is the highest goal.


There is only one time that great feeling can be experienced: that is now, this very moment. That great inner feeling is the most profound Truth. It is the secret of the ages, and it is also the Truth of the present moment. We only experience it when we look within. This is the ultimate reason that people meditate or do other spiritual practices - to experience that bliss within our own Self. There are innumerable meditation techniques and methods of practice, but the primary goal in life is to experience that wondrous feeling of our own inner Self.


Ordinarily, we are caught up in thoughts and emotions, which take place in 'time', and which are usually related to the past or the future. Many of our habitual patterns of thought and feeling are of a negative or limited nature, because we were conditioned or programmed that way from the time we were very young.


Such habitual ways of thinking and feeling lead to stress, tension, and conflict. Instead of life being a joy, a natural high, we go to the doldrums. We spend our days angry, depressed, irritated, insecure, and life seems hard. All this happens because we ignore the awareness and power inherent in the existing moment. Only in the present moment do we have access to happiness, joy, love, contentment, peace, and the other positive, uplifting feelings.


We need to be reminded again and again to come back to the present. Come back to the Truth. Otherwise, we get lost in egotistical melodramas and forget all about the existing moment. We need a way to actually tune in to the Truth of the present moment. And that is the exact purpose of these writings. This moment is the stage on which we deal with the challenges of daily life. When we live in the moment, in that space between any two thoughts, is when we face life best. We can learn how to do this, and how to focus the mind in the present moment in a way that immediately modifies our experience of daily situations and relationships. Understanding how we create our own reality is an amazing process.


Right now, in this moment, we can consciously connect with our own inner Self. It has been known by many names, in various cultures and in different eras. Yet, whatever we call it, it remains as it is, and remains the one aspect of the entire cosmos that's eternally unchanging. We experience this within ourselves as our own consciousness, our awareness of Being.


Ignorant of the eternal Truth, everything we know is fleeting, and as long as things are fleeting there is the potential for anxiety and fear. We know this all too well. And today's world offers new challenges that we would never have dreamed of even ten years ago. For now, simply be with these ideas, as though you are reading an interesting science fiction story. And especially be open to any insights or new ways of seeing or understanding things that might arise. You might have spontaneous insights and revelations regarding what you, as an individual need to know in order to proactively participate in your own spiritual evolution.



Living In Today's World

How do we deal with the realities of today's world, including economic hardship and insecurity for many? Hard times have existed in this world ever since it began, yet there have always been those few who knew the Truth of Being and lived in mastery of life to varying degrees. Many great teachers throughout time have taught this same great Truth. Although, it has been interpreted in different ways, and there have been different points of emphasis, leading to the various paths that ultimately bring us back to the same Truth.
This outer challenging world, including the physical realities of economic hardship, deteriorating health, loss, lack of, or limitation of any nature, does exist in its own realm. However, it is not the only realm in existence., and it is certainly not the highest, nicest, or most pleasant realm either. If we have a choice (and of course we always have) - which we do, whether we consciously realize it or not - why not choose to live in the exalted Truth of the present moment, instead of languishing in the pain of external woe? We do have a choice, but we must exercise it.


We want to get to know that aspect of our own inner Self that is changeless. (even though it is ever changing) All things in this world change., physically, emotionally, and mentally. To have a still mind, a still emotional state, or even a still body would be a great attainment. There is great power in stillness, for it is the substratum of life as we know it. All movement, motion, and activity take place like a painting on a canvas of inner stillness.



That inner stillness exists right now., we only need to awaken our awareness of our own Truth.

The highest, most refined feeling and experiences will not be found in the melodramas of outer life and passing time. If we lose touch with our inner feeling, we get lost in our mental stories about what is going on and who is doing what. We get lost in habitual negative emotions that go along with those mental stories, and we lose touch with the Truth of the present moment. Through careless thinking we tend to create a reality that we don't even want. The mind creates our personal reality in each and every moment, not just now and then.



We Create Our Own Reality

The one underlying theme throughout this work is: Remain conscious of that great inner feeling right now. Awaken it within yourself. Create a positive habit out of it. Don't wait for some external source to inspire joy. Joy naturally springs from within us whenever we get momentarily free from mental burdens and concerns. And remember, do or do not. There is no try. If you keep trying to walk out the door to experience, you'll never get there. It's a choice whether you want to, or not. But the best way to experience is to give it a go. What do you have to lose? Not a thing.


Through the power of meditation, or through visiting the space between thoughts, we experience a great inner light. Through the conduit of this exquisite light, we experience love within our own heart. This heart, the heart of love, is the portal through which we experience the highest aspect of the present moment.


We can go through life conscious of this extraordinary inner feeling everywhere we go and during everything we do, regardless of what is happening around us or to us. We can simply make this inner radiance our lifestyle. Through doing so, that extraordinary feeling is spontaneously radiated to others around us. The sparkling inner feeling is palpable - others can easily sense it. It is contagious, others will feel good by simply being around us, without having any idea why. If we maintain this great feeling within ourselves, others will pick up on it and begin to experience the same feeling within themselves.


Spend some time with a cheerful person and see how much better you feel afterwards. Then spend some time with a depressed or angry person, and see how much worse you feel. There is a definite, distinguishable difference. Through understanding this simple principle, we see how we can most contribute to others and the world around us by simply maintaining a good feeling in ourselves.



Experiencing true joy and love happens only in the present moment.

It is one thing to know about these principles and to agree with them, but actual mastery in practical daily life is a whole other matter. It takes practice, repetition, and consistency to actually apply these principles of Truth in our own life. Otherwise, we have learned some interesting information without any significant transformation. There are many who seek knowledge of Truth, yet only a few are willing to do what is necessary for actual achievement and mastery. When we are conscious of consciousness, we experience that great feeling in the heart. Consciousness is not cold, intellectual, or remote. It is warm, heartfelt, the most exquisite openness and intimacy.


If you ever get the idea that I am repeating myself, I am. I have experienced a lifetime of repeating these principles over and over. And yet, I am not even close to being finished with this lifetime. I can only imagine what I will come up against next. It takes much repetition of a single exalted idea to make the slightest impression in the average human consciousness.


We are so conditioned and programmed to see and experience the world in rigidly limited ways. It is very challenging to open up to new ways of seeing and experiencing things. And the only possibility of success is through continuous repetition of the principles of Truth, as well as the persistent practice of our new understanding in moment to moment life. After exploring the principles of Truth in many different ways, and through applying them in practical ways in our own life, they gradually become part of us, and become our own understanding and wisdom.



Living the principles of Truth

Understand from the beginning that these are regarding the communication of natural principles that can be practiced in one's own daily life for a greater life., regardless of how one's life might be in any given moment. The same can be applied equally for success in business or career, in matters of health and longevity, for increasing prosperity and the enjoyment of life, and in the long run, spiritual growth and absolute freedom.


You will be shown how to achieve of the creative power of mind in order to live in your own secret heaven here and now, while in this physical body. Unfortunately, most of us unconsciously use the same power to live in some degree of 'hell' here and now, in this body because we describe many aspects of our life in negative, hellish ways instead of positive, heavenly ways. We live in financial insecurity, for example, because we focus on fear and anxiety instead of developing a consciousness of prosperity through feeling the reality of having all that we need. Such an attitude attracts prosperity to us, while the negative attitudes of lack and loss repel it.


You will learn how to think only of what you actually want in your life., or what feels pleasant, and to refuse to think of what you do not want to, or what feels unpleasant. This seems so simple that the conscious mind is almost unable to recognize the profound life transforming significance of it.


Because of previous conditioning, we are unable to see the greatness of our own Being. Through persistent practice we can learn to break free from prior, limiting conditioning, so that we can live in the awareness of our own Truth, the awareness of Being, which is living as a true human being. When we live in the awareness of our own inner Truth - and the love, light, and bliss that accompanies that experience, then we have fulfilled the purpose of our being here.


If you overcome the sorrow of repetitive history, when delusion is gone and the Truth is realized by means of inquiry into self-nature, when the mind is at peace and the heart leaps to the supreme Truth, when all the disturbing thought waves in the mind stuff have subsided and there is unbroken flow of peace, and the heart is filled with bliss, then this very world becomes an abode of bliss. Such a person has nothing to acquire or to shun. He is untainted by the defects of life and untouched by sorrow. He does not come into being or go out, although he appears to come and go in the eyes of the beholder. He is not affected by the past tendencies that have lost their momentum., his mind has given up its restlessness, and he rests in the bliss that is his essential nature. Such bliss is possible only by self-knowledge, not by any other means. Therefore, one should apply oneself constantly to self-knowledge. This alone is one's duty.

Eight Gifts That Don't Cost a Cent




This simple checklist can help measure how you are nurturing your relationships.



The Gift of Listening


But you must really listen. Don't interrupt, don't daydream, and don't plan your response. Just listen.


The Gift of Affection

Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

It can be a simple "Thanks for your help" note, or a longer expression of your appreciation for that person being in your life. A brief handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime.



The Gift of a Compliment

A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job," or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

Love Is The New Religion





Love Is The New Religion


On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and
things seem dark
But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening
underground
An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being
called to a higher light
It is a silent revolution
From the inside out
From the ground up

It is time for me to reveal myself
I am an embedded agent of an secret, undercover
Clandestine
Global operation
A spiritual conspiracy
We have sleeper cells in every nation on the planet

You won't see us on the T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper
You won't hear about us on the radio

We don't seek any glory
We don't wear any uniform
We come in all shapes and sizes
Colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously
We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture
of the world
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages,
tribes and remote islands

You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice
We go undercover
We remain behind the scenes
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs
But behind the false storefront at night is where the real work takes
place

Some call us the "Conscious Army"
We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and
hearts
We follow, with passion and joy
Our orders from the Central Command
The Spiritual Intelligence Agency

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no ones is looking
Poems
Hugs
Music
Photography
Movies
Kind words
Smiles
Meditation and prayer
Dance
Social activism
Websites
Blogs
Random acts of kindness

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways with our own unique
gifts and talents

"Be the change you want to see in the world"
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly and humbly we have the power of all the oceans
combined

Our work is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains
It is not even visible at first glance
And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries
to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don't have to be a highly educated person
Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it

It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you want to see in the world
Nobody else can do it for you

We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have....
All are welcome...
The door is open

-Brian Piergrossi
(From the book "The Big Glow")

Poetry Emotion




Take with you words, strong words of courage.,

Words that have wings!..

Take with you words, words that know you.,

Words that are sacred as healing waters,

Pure as Light, and beautiful as morning,

Take with you tall words, words that reach up,

And growing words, with deep life within them.

Take with you words, words that know you.

There is nothing I can give you which you have not,

but there is much that while I cannot give you,

you can take:

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find

rest in today. Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden

in this present instant. Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow.,

behind it, yet within reach, is joy. Take Joy.

We search the world for truth, we cull

The good, the true, the beautiful,

From graven stone and written scroll,

And all old flower-fields of the soul.,

And, weary seekers of the best,

We come back laden from our quest,

To find that all the sages said

Is in the book our mothers read.

* What lies behind us and what lies before us..

are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. *


*NOTE*

~ All phrases, quotes and poetic emotion are the works of others, but their names need not apply simply because that is not the point in sharing at this moment., it is the messages within them that matters the most. I would never take credit for any of them although I would be lying if I said I was not inspired by them. Which I am very much so inspired by each and every one for individual reasons. ~

Blessings all and always keep safe

Love, Courage, Peace xo

In the Beginning?


It's one thing to discuss and debate the endless theory of Spirituality, but giving due consideration to the 'chicken or the egg' scenario, might not be essential before going down that road., to consider which comes first: Spirituality or the manifestation of mankind.


Beyond the scope of creative and evolutionary processes, already considered most likely to have brought about the human species and that are now well established and circulated on the planet. There are numerous theories put forward by well versed academics, such being uncovered by wandering along countless corridors of consideration. And also pertaining to more diverse hypothetical evolutionary processes.

Given, most accept the wide spread findings or theories of modern science a more logical or practical means of evolution, others consider it worthwhile to explore more diverse avenues of thought. And this, that might throw a different color light on the creative and 'growth option' process. With that in mind, I am taking a look at some more diverse ideas, and put them forward by some theorists, one of whom is Thomas Gold (1920 - 2004), whose fields of expertise were noted for: Astrophysics, Astronomy, Biophysics, Cosmology, Geophysics and Aerospace engineering. A somewhat diverse proposal that was placed forward by Professor Gold, labeled 'The Garbage Theory', suggested that life on Earth might have evolved from a portion of waste products (material type undisclosed) dumped on Earth many years ago by other explorers. He certainly didn't stand alone in or with the reasoning that this form of incarnation may have taken place. From a British history channel documentary series, the program looked into the practicalities of the ancient beings theory. Those who have oriented their minds in a way that will allow them to consider such prospects. Diverse as some might be, the considerations of the many are more likely to reveal the truths that will ring clear to the few. Personally, I will keep my ears, eyes and mind wide open as I continue to search for and try to uncover more that supports a more radical approach to my being here.


Another contribution in thought, Archaeology has really brought new evidence to the past theories of mankind's creation and evolution. It is rather sad that other influences of governments, science and such seem to delay sharing much of this new information with the world. I have the opinion that creation from what was already, is a much longer in the past than previously thought. All potentials are possible and the many choices determines mankind's growth patterns. It seems to me though that mankind had to become more 'aware' of these patterns before it could start recognizing the 'need' for self accountability on this planet. To review history, we can find many events were civilizations came and went without a thought of self accountability. So in this aspect then you may see that mankind evolving into a civilization that is recognizing to the consequences of not being self accountable. However, greed and other errs of society have it moving at a snails pace. I had heard in conversations in one moment that we are behind in evolving. Maybe so. All the individual souls that are progressing and evolving, of this.. there is no doubt. But when the soul finds itself in place, it then also possesses a higher level of intelligence and can make choices and decisions that will either cast it down into a lower life form again or open the way for even higher and finer levels of development. We are the architects of our own destiny. The set of desires we cultivate during the course of this life are already forming our next. Our bodies are temporary but we are eternal.


Scientists and Universities all around the world have been trying for over 100 years to prove that evolution is the mechanism that created life, yet.. no scientific evidence has been found. There are theories of where life came from, one theory of evolution says that the first life came into existence four or five billion years ago as a result of billions of years of accidental, random atomic collisions. Another, that life came into existence through a creator, creating life, and also Darwin's theory of natural selection. If you may not very well know how life originated, and although there has been a variety of experiments that has been shown to us, some of the possibilities, some will remain in ignorance. Some, in an enormous amount of time, effort, and funds have been spent trying to learn how evolution brought about the existence of the first living organism. But although some beliefs sound very logical, the only thing that anyone has provided are merely statements of theory. The rest will be absolute truth.


There are multiple avenues that branch out from the tree, but there can only be one historical path that life took and as yet we do not know which of these avenues will lead us through the maze and which will end up in a blind alley. At the end of the day, we have to admit that we're looking through the glass. We have our own hints, we have geologic record that tells us that life formed early. And the trouble with a 'nothing's new' scenario (in context with) is that the written word can be interpreted in many different ways thus making it idealistic for some misrepresentation or certain levels of sculpting to take place. In any hope and chance to anything including the imaginative one can perceive. But there again, then such to those who will have methods to make the subject clearer, if we are to allow more free thinking and expression to have its way, or day.

To this place where I now am, and the person I am..

They are in no specific date order.. more like the pieces of a puzzle that need to be put together by anyone who's interested enough to find out how I reached the point in time., where I am now., and the events to such has led me to be..

Some parts relate to early childhood, others more later in years, some are just thoughts that have passed through my thoughts conjured up by brief memories that sprung to mind for no particular reason., or were even inspired by the words and thoughts of others.

Who can say why the images of life, that are (in reality) life in the making with each passing moment come into being.. Maybe its not for us (as individuals) at all ~ more so., they might be hidden messages, intended for others, who need a new direction in life and are pondering on what to do, or which way to turn.

I see our journey as a path. Many people say that this path leads us to Perfection. Not sure about that. All I know is that each step is the perfect stage for learning something that enables you to give the next step no matter where you want to go. Sometimes the teachings are not always easy and we change our ways many of times. Sometimes we intend to take shortcuts but all we can get are long detours. (and sometimes that's a good thing) Sometimes the path is full of stones and at other times it is full of flowers. We are all on this forever changing journey, forever growing, forever changing, and during its course come to many destinations, each merely a short stop signifying a new beginning.

We all experience success and failure, joy and heartbreak, the journey never stops. Then we begin wandering down an untraveled road, no maps, no directions or road signs. And innocent of any concept of corruption, but along the way we learn, gaining knowledge. And some of that knowledge can lead to choices or situations outside of our own making where temptation lays in wait to entrap. But it is difficult to say what any one of us would do in any one situation., or to judge the actions of others when faced with an easy way out without first walking in their shoes. And all we can ever do is the best that we can at any one given moment. Everyone has a purpose and we are all unique doing our own thing in our own way, having respect for ourselves promotes respect for others.

The life of an individual is like the seasons of the year: each with its peculiar beauty. Whatever the season..

Poetry Emotion

My music goes with you for cure of humanity's wrong.
To invert the affront when you fail to sing my song.
The script codes on the surface are in line with time.
The spirals twist and unfold to form a line.

Take a walk in these fields where all things form.
Seek the root of the atoms which stray the norm.
Levels of esters in growth as enzymes catalyze.
Amino acids build the molecules for protein we synthesize.

Learn from the message inlaid, how to genetically realign.
Growth of the plant and man are intertwined.
Primal DNA is gift of Mother Earth no man claimed.
All memory of time in soil or script in stone are here engrained.

Man's sight to enable the brain's circuitry recognitions.
A stimulus for our thoughts cognitive revelations.
Messages on Earth's canvas guide us in time of need.
Historical repetition of linguistics mankind must heed.

Renditions by an unknown artist paint a lost memory now past.
A forgotten language in the shadows time has outcast.
Earth's mass must reciprocate unto Light's energy demand.
The black of night absorbs in silence the need of reprimand.

Empty spaces hold, contained rest energies.
Where diffractions of the Light bends for gravity to appease.
Perfusing now these long forgotten links to thought in time.
Awakens simplicity to complex reason without rhyme.

Take a ninety degree angle, lay it on a line and a convex curved.
The geometric design signifies what the Egyptian long ago learned.
To heal the Earth is to free the Mind.
Absorb the Sun, to reach height of our climb.

Evolutionary leaders sing a song of mutant codes.
Evolution without time is song only time's past knows.
The Earth sings the song whose harmonic is for the Cosmic race.
Therein is so defined, the music humanity's imprint could not erase.

I Am





I am not lonesome nor apart that men should cry, "Lo, there!"

I am the all, immersed in all, behold me everywhere.,

I am the morning zepher soft while skipping over the lea,

I am the music of the brook that flows on to the sea:

I am the kisses of the sun, I am the tears of the rain,

I am the welcome breath of spring that brings new life again;

I am the sprouting of the seed, the budding of the flower,

I am the beauty that men behold unfolding every hour.,

I am the singing of the birds. the rustling of the leaves.

I am the holy force of life in everything that breathes.,

I am the thrill of harmony men feel but cannot tell,

I am the firm unchanging law that work all things well;

I am the source that all men seek, I am their peace, their pain,

I am the courage of the weak that turns all loss to gain.,

I am the hope that never dies, the ecstasy divine,

I am the Great, Eternal Love that draws all life to mine.,

I am the light that never fails, the power that never dies,

I am the still, small voice within that bids the Soul arise.,

I am the Fruit of highest thought,

I am the iron rod that strengthens and supports the whole,

I Am what men call God.

One, and One only,

I am in essence: Changeless, indivisible:

Concealing within my being.

The ten Lights of divine emanation.

In this, mine unalterable unity, Am I supreme,

And none is equal unto me.

Yet though I myself remain unchanged.

Throughout eternity,

My power doth manifest itself in ceaseless change.

Of all existences I am the source,

The continuation, and the end.

I am the germ, I am the growth, I am the decay,

All things and creatures I send forth.,

I support them while yet they stand without.,

And when the dream of separation ends,

I cause their return unto myself.




The first shall be last and the last shall be first. This consists of the one which is., the One issuing, thus becoming the Two being born of the One., and the relationship of activity is thus the Three.




If you write your name on a piece of paper, you must first touch pen to paper. This creates the Point. Then you must move the pen. This creates the Line. The line is a continuation of the Point. The Point is the Father. The Line is the Son. The relationship between the Point and the Line is that of movement, of activity. Life is activity, hence the Third is the Giver of Life. However, these Three are not Three, but One. This is because the issuing has not yet taken place. And before the issuing can take place, the possibility, the power, of its doing so must exist. This is possibility. The possibility is the potential. This is partnership.


But, Also now again:

The beginning of all things is division.

"For I am divided for love's sake, for the chance of union.

This is the creation of the world."

God, being Love, divides for the sake of union.


It is described as the Circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. Its center is everywhere. Its circumference is nowhere. Everywhere. Every Where, Now Here.
 

From this the shining worlds flow forth,

To this all at last return,

Yet to this no man. May draw nigh, For it is known only to itself.
There is a reality even prior to heaven and earth;

Indeed, it has no form, much less a name;

Eyes fail to see it; It has no voice for ears to detect;

To call to Mind or Buddha violates its nature,

For it then becomes like a visionary flower in the air.

It is not Mind, nor Buddha; Absolutely quiet,

and yet illuminating in a mysterious way,

It allows itself to be perceived only by the clear-eyed.

It is Dharma truly beyond form and sound;

It is Tao having nothing to do with words.

There is day, also, and night in the universe;

The wise know this, declaring the day of Brahma.

A thousand ages in span.

And the night a thousand ages,

It is the Cosmic Breath.

It is indrawn and held.


Strong with suppliant voice had call,

Heaven, sea, and Earth, the mighty queen of all,

Immortal for all the world is thine,

And all are parts of thee, O' power divine.

Come, blessed whom rural in delight,

Come, wandering, a starry light.

Whose various parts, by thee inspired, combine

In endless dance and melody divine.

In thee a refuge from our fears we find,

Those fears peculiar to the humankind.

Three, shepherds, streams of water, goats rejoice,

thou lovest the chase and Echo's secret voice:

the sportive Nymphs thy every step attend,

And all thy works fulfill their destined.

O' all-producing power, much famed, divine,

The world's great ruler, rich increase is thine.

All-fertile heavenly splendour pure,

In fruits rejoicing, and in caves obscure.

By thee the Earth wide-bosomed, deep and long,

Stands on a basis permanent and strong.

The unwearied waters of the rolling sea,

Profoundly spreading, yield to thy decree,

Submit alike to thee, whose general sway

All parts of matter, various formed, obey.

All natures change though thy protecting care,

And all mankind thy liberal bounties share;

For these, wherever dispersed through boundless space,

Still find thy providence support their race.

Come, Blessed power, draw near,

Propitious to these holy rites attend,

And grant our lives may meet a prosperous end;

Drive panic fury too, wherever found,

From humankind to earth's remotest bound.


Abode of whose guardian power surrounds

The eternal world with ever during bounds;

Whose ample bosom, and encircling folds

The dire necessity of nature holds,

Ethereal, earthly, whose all various frame,

Azure and full of forms, no power can tame,

All seeing, source of Saturn and of time,

Forever blessed, deity sublime,

Propitious on a novel mystic shine,

And crown his wishes with a life divine.

Empathy Emotion





When we correct our perceptions we gradually discover the force of nature until we've discovered it fully in its real form. No one in the world can do whatever they want; we have to take care of everyone because each one depends on everyone else.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

In spiritual terms, what this time calls for is nothing less than a conversion of our minds and hearts to the good of the Earth. We need to learn to relate anew to the natural world not as dominators, not even as stewards - which does not go for enough but as real kin in Creation. Our human lives are interwoven with millions of other species in a great community of life. How we love responsibly will determine whether life on this planet has a glorious or miserable future. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are at least three spiritual responses to Earth's crisis: the sacramental, or contemplative, the ascetic, and the prophetic. Each is important., they can be combined in different ways., together they will enable us to develop the virtue of "earthkeeping." The sacramental response gases contemplatively on the world with the eyes of love rather than with an arrogant, utilitarian stare, and sees there the handiwork of Creation. Not only is the evolutionary world created by the power and imagination of wisdom, but it also participates in the goodness of Divine Being. Moreover, choose to unite with the material of Earth in a profoundly personal way. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The ascetic response calls for intellectual humility in our assessment of the human place in the Universe and practical discipline in our use of natural resources. The tru purpose of asceticism has always been to make us fully alive to the movement of grace in our lives and the movement of the Spirit in the world. An ecological asceticism from the pebble to the peach, to the poodle to the person, all under the sway of the apex, asceticism reconfigures that pyramid into a circle of life with human beings thoroughly interwoven with all the other creatures, special in virtue of being conscious and free but utterly interdependent on others for their life. This view charts a path down from our pedestal toward partnership with Earth's power of life. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The prophetic response move us to action on behalf of justice for the Earth. A moral Universe limited to the human community no longer serves the future of life. If the Earth is indeed Creation, with its own intrinsic value, then Earth bears the marks of deep prophetic response with its ethical demands for care, protection, and restoration. Indeed, the impulse to care for the Earth, to heal and redeem it, takes on the character of a moral imperative. One stringent criterion must now measure the morality of our actions: whether or not these contribute to a substainable Earth community. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We need to respect life, not only among humankind but also among other living creatures. Who is your neighbor? The samaritan? The friend? The outcast? Yes, yes of course. But, it is also a whale, the dolphin, and the rainforest. Our neighbor is the entire community of life, the entire Universe. We must love it all as our very self. We all share the status of creature. We are Kin in the evolving community of life. Our vision of justice must be one of cosmic justice. The aim is to establish and protect healthy ecosystems where all living creatures can flourish.

Serenity by Robin Ann

Though we welcome the gentle whispering winds that flow, and lay in silence the soft morning which alight its own glory. Capturing its flame, its bliss of no other sound held itself strong and naturally elemental free. And wishing Serenity shed a glimpse of what a solitary tear would have been. The single moment entered quietly., In hopes of all given to its capable of being. By sometimes feeling unheard, Serenity gives without taking away. Choices were made entering at will. Never standing alone. Never being alone. As to waves that kiss the sands to an open shore. To come to Knowing what soon means.

Meditations, Mantras and Yoga

Kiirtan Kiirtan is the singing of a mantra aloud while ideating on the Supreme Being. It inculcates the feeling of bliss and prepares the mind for meditation, because in performing it all the motor and sensory organs are engaged and directed towards the Supreme. It can be done anywhere, any time, but the best time is just before meditation. The mantra used for kiirtan is: Baba Nam Kevalam Baba means "my most beloved One", Nam means "name of" or "to identify with", and Kevalam means "only". So the meaning of the mantra is "My most Beloved is the only One." The ideation is: "Everywhere I look, in everything I hear, feel, see, taste and smell, I perceive that one Supreme Consciousness which pervades all things." Kiirtan has many benefits. It purifies the mind and prepares it for meditation, accelerating the speed of movement toward the Supreme. Because of the mental clarity achieved, one easily finds solutions to problems while performing it, as well as relief from physical and psychic ailments. Meditation The practices of Ananda Marga encompass a wide range of techniques for physical, mental and spiritual development, the central practice being meditation. Meditation means to look within your mind to feel the bliss that is the essence of your existence. That bliss is within you, just as it is within everybody and everything. Meditation is an essential tool for self-transformation and spiritual development. One of the goals of Ananda Marga is to make meditation available to all people free of charge throughout the world. Specially trained teachers give personal instruction in the process of mantra meditation, but you can try a simple technique for yourself now: Find a comfortable place on the floor and sit with your legs crossed. Place your hands one on top of the other in your lap, keep your back straight, eyes closed and tongue on the roof of the mouth. Your breathing should be calm and relaxed, through the nose. Now imagine that you are sitting in the most peaceful place that you can think of. Feel that you are sitting there in complete peace, and imagine infinite happiness is surrounding you in every direction. Feel that you are completely surrounded by that infinite peace and happiness, and start to repeat within your mind the following mantra: Baba Nam Kevalam Baba means "beloved". It refers to your deepest self: the Supreme Self, the source of infinite peace and happiness. Nam means "name" or "to identify with", and Kevalam means "only". So the mantra means "Only my Beloved". Think of the meaning as you're repeating it, and feel the infinite peace and happiness all around you and within you. Continue for as long as you like, then open your eyes. "You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the starsguides you too." ~ Shrii Shrii Anandamurti Guidelines for meditation: • Don't worry if you have trouble concentrating – it's normal. It takes some time and practice to be able to focus on the one thought. Every time you realize your mind has wandered away from the mantra, concentrate on it again – it will get easier the more you do it. The main thing is to keep practicing, and really try to tap into the flow of the ideation. • Don't meditate sitting on a chair or on your bed – you are likely to get too relaxed to concentrate. Instead, sit cross-legged on the floor in a peaceful place where nobody will disturb you. Sit on a blanket or mat, and keep it only for your meditation. If you have trouble sitting cross-legged, put some cushions under you so your backside is higher off the ground. That will take some of the pressure off your legs, and help keep your back straight. Avoid resting your back against the wall. • Refresh yourself with cool water before you start. • Meditate twice a day – in the morning before breakfast, and in the evening before dinner. Each time is important, to get your mind and body used to it. • Singing the mantra aloud before you meditate calms the mind and prepares it for meditation. You can sing to any tune you like, with or without instruments. • Repeat the mantra throughout the rest of the day, singing it if you like. That will give you a continual feeling of lightness and happiness, and make it easier to meditate. Asanas (yoga postures) In the West we have come to equate the term "yoga" with yoga postures, but in fact they form only a small – albeit important – part of the whole system. The term "yoga" in fact implies a whole way of life which includes yoga postures as one of its many facets. In Sanskrit, yoga postures are called asanas. Asana means "a posture giving physical comfort and mental composure." Asanas affect the glands, nerves, muscles and all the organs of the body. There are many physical benefits, but the most important effect is on the mind. The practice of asanas places pressure on the endocrine glands, and this results in the regulation of hormones secreted from those glands. The hormones affect the emotions, and the resultant emotional balance facilitates concentration and meditation. So asanas help prepare the mind for meditation. Benefits of asanas: • Balance the hormone secretions from the glands. • Give flexibility to the body. • Improve respiration, as well as blood and lymph circulation. • Massage the internal organs. • Detoxify the joints. • Relax the nerves and muscles. • Cure diseases. While practicing asanas the body should be cool and calm. The stomach should not be full. The room should be clean and warm, and there should be no smoke in the air. Except for the meditation postures, asanas should not be practiced during menstruation or pregnancy. In general, asanas should only be practiced on the advice of a proper teacher. Spread a blanket or mat on the floor and try these simple and effective asanas: Yogamudra: Sit cross-legged. Hold your left wrist with your right hand behind your back. Slowly lowering your chin, then your neck, bend down as far as you can go (as in the photo at the top of this page), breathing out as you go down. Stay there for 8 seconds with your breath held out, then rise up breathing in. Practice eight times. Cobra: Lie on your stomach. Place your hands facing down on the floor beside your ears. Supporting your weight on your palms, push up and raise the chest, looking up towards the ceiling. Breathe in while rising, and hold your breath in that position for 8 seconds. Come down to the original position while breathing out. Practice eight times. Long Salutation: Kneel down with your buttocks resting on your heels and your toes pointing forward. With your palms together, extend your arms up vertically next to your ears. Slowly bring your arms and head down as one, first bending your neck, then the whole upper body, until your fingers hit the floor, keeping your buttocks on your heels all the time. Now stretch out with your forehead and nose resting on the floor. Breathe out as you go down, and stay there with your breath held out for 8 seconds. Then rise up breathing in. Practice eight times. After practicing asanas, you should do a skin massage and then lie down in deep relaxation for at least two minutes. The skin massage helps in the absorption of sebaceous oils which are naturally secreted onto the skin surface. Deep relaxation gives the body a chance to assimilate the positive energy gained from the asanas. Skin Massage: • Increases the lustre and suppleness of the skin. • Relaxes and revitalizes the nerves. • Increases the blood and lymph circulation. • Harmonizes the vital energy (pranah) of the body. The skin massage is not a deep muscle massage. It is a light going-over of the skin, as well as some extra attention given to the lymph glands. First rub your palms together a few times to warm them up. Start at the head and face and work down, rubbing the entire surface area of the skin. This is one of the reasons why it’s best not to wear any clothes except your underwear during asanas – the skin massage should be done in direct contact with the skin. Pay particular attention to the throat, under the chin, the armpits, groin, and behind the knees. In these regions there are collections of lymph glands which also benefit from the massage. Deep Relaxation: • Induces the "relaxation response," similar to hibernation. • Relieves stress. • Lowers the blood pressure. • Strengthens the heart. • Relaxes the nerves and muscles. • Decreases the need for sleep. Using the same blanket as for asanas, lie on your back with your arms by your side, making sure that your breathing is calm and relaxed. Now go through your whole body, starting at your feet, consciously making sure that each part is completely relaxed – with no muscular tension at all. Go from the feet up the legs, consciously checking each part, into the groin area, into the abdomen (also feeling that your internal organs are relaxed), into the chest and shoulders, from the fingers and hands up the arms, then into the neck and up into the face, relaxing the facial muscles, including the eyes, and finally to the top of the head, feeling that your brain is also relaxed. Check once more that you are breathing calmly, and stay like that – fully relaxed – for a few more minutes. Deep relaxation is especially important for those who do a lot of mental work. Do it as often as you like throughout the day. Whenever you feel mentally fatigued, even just a couple of minutes can be enough to rejuvenate and revive you.
