Simple Gifts

Shaker Meetinghouse

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right

Water of Life

Glass of WaterHow much water do you drink a day? Do you drink half your body weight in ounces a day? If not, you may not be drinking enough water for your body. I found this out personally a while back and started drinking half my body weight in ounces a day and I noticed many of the health related issues I was experiencing went away. So if you think you may not be drinking enough water, first visit your doctor and get a physical. Then ask your doctor if drinking half your body weight in ounces a day, which for most people would be around 8 glasses a day would help you out.

The Eternal Sun

Paracelsus“There is an earthly sun that is the cause of all heat, and all who are able to see may see the sun; and those who are blind and cannot see it may feel the heat. There is an Eternal Sun that is the source of all wisdom, and those whose spiritual senses have awakened to life will see that Sun and be concious of Its existence; and even those who have not yet attained spiritual consciousness may feel Its power by an inner faculty that is called intuition.” ~ Paracelsus

Solstice

Summer Solstice

The Sun at its highest
Shines down onto the Earth below.

The Sun signals to those in the North
It’s time to grow!

Half the cycle has come and gone;
A cycle of rebirth begins.

The soul awakens to a new period
Of growth and rejuvenation.

Stonehenge

Standing silent as ancient sentinels,
Guarding their secrets, for those who seek.

Drawing from distant lands, those
Who their mysteries can unlock.

Energies felt, dreams awakened.
Old memories of times long forgotten.

Of lives lived. Of lives to live.
Stones of wonder, and stones of wisdom.

Stones of energy and inner peace.
Stones of those who knew the secrets,

The majority in modern times has forgotten.
Calling out to those who listen, to come

And re-awaken their inner gnosis. To once
Again soar into the stars!

Where does optimism start and end?

I know I have not posted in quite some time to this blog, but here it goes. Where does optimism start and where does it end? There has been a call from optimism from people who feel that the world is starting to become darker and darker. Some say that things are just being “unveiled” and that things will “get better” while some call it the “next great dark age.” I am not sure where the current timeline is headed, but all that I know is that without optimism we are totally f*cked.

There is no way around it, optimism is the fuel that keeps us going. Without the thought that things can change for a positive turn is important. The current situation in the world should teach us one thing, and one thing only. That we cannot rely on governments, churches, organizations to make the change happen, nor can we rely on prayers and speech without action. If you see a change that needs to take place, help to make the change happen. Either volunteer your time, or donate to help others who are engaged in making the positive change happen. Donate for people helping to find people housing, food, healthcare. Not to empty demagogues and raconteurs who do nothing more than listen to their own voice over megaphones and social media.

If you see a neighbor who needs help, do not be afraid to ask if they need help. I’m not saying pick up every hitch-hiker you meet near a state prison, as this is a really bad idea, but help those immediately around you in your own neighborhood. If we do this then the positive affect with be a spiraling wave of hope across the world. Do not feel bad if you cannot physically help a person, being there to listen, is just as important. Many people are ignored or looked down upon due to mental health issues. We should be their friends and not their judges. Their helpers and not their obstacles. There is hope in this world, and I see it.

Breathe!

BreatheHow do we release our pain and stress of our daily lives? We encounter stress and

suffering in every point of our daily lives, but how do we free ourselves of the stress and suffering?

Lately I have been practicing breathing excersies where I see myself breathing in what I want into my body and life and breathing out what I do not want in my life.

I imagine myself releasing and breathing out the psychosomatic stress in my life. I try to understand the stress without judging it as good or bad. Most of all I understand that I must let go of the stress in order to maintain a healthy mental state. Then as I breath in, I imagine joy pouring into my body and filling the void where the stress was taking up.

I hope this helps others who have similar issues in dealing with anxiety and stress.

Land of Mystery and Secrets

O Egypt, Land of Beauty and Yesteryear,Giza-Pyramids
Land of lore and mystery!
Once forgotten to history, never lost
Amongst all the souls that you have forged in your fires and temples!
In your pyramids and in secrets,
yet again to be reborn, cosmic
travellers come back to awaken.
All that modern man thought was lost
and forgotten!

Compassion

IMG_4868The greatest thing we have that we can give to each other is never-ending compassion. It is by total chance you are who you are. You could of easy been that person that you see on the street homeless suffering in the sub-zero temperatures. You could of been the child starving not knowing where their next meal will come from. You could of been the person no one cared to love or say how truly great they are. The race and the place you’re born in are random. In the cosmic scheme no one is separate, no one is different. The feeling of difference that people have is an illusion. Illusions guide our every day. The illusion that you cannot have compassion towards another being. Even those people that we despise still deserve compassion.

10,000 Hearts

heart10,000 Hearts beating,
10,000 minds thinking,
10,000 Eyes seeing,
10,000 Ears hearing

Multiply this times multiples of thousands; this Is the heartbeat of the universe. All sentient beings, all peering out into the same cosmic sky.

Through our own heart beat we are connected to every other heartbeat in the universe. The heart pumps the energetic fluid though the body. When we breath our first breath the cosmic spark ignites through
us and we become ourselves, in a long line of selves.
Each time gaining more experience till we reach
The last aha moment and move on to a higher
dimensional reality.
