Everything around us is vibrating. For instance the Sun’s vibration in the audible frequency range is 126.22 Hz. The human body has a vibrational frequency around 62-78 MHz. Quartz Crystals have a frequency around 32 KHz. In Short everything around us from the smallest atom to the largest structures all have a vibrational frequency. The ancients understood the power of attuning to these frequencies to bring about change and healing in the human body or planet.
Attuning the body to the vibrations of the cosmic AUM can balance our minds and bodies to higher states of awareness of the illusion of reality around us. Everything within us resonates with something, it is up to us to choose what we want to resonate with. Whether we attune with the material unreality around us or the Ultimate Truth of the Sublime Cosmic Essence within.
Beyond Time and Space we come to the present …
Beyond Time and Space we go to the Past …
Beyond Time and Space we see the future …
All are wrapped into one instance, no beginning, no end. continuity!
This is the realm in which we can change ourselves.
The realm of the One, of the Universe, of the Cosmos!
What better time to start the year than on the day that the light overcomes the dark and the days get longer? The Winter Solstice in its majesty teaches us 1) that astronomy is fun and that 2) that the light does overcome the dark. That the light will arise in us and awaken our inner eye and we will see in a way we have not seen before. What a perfect time to start the new year!
We will look back at all the craziness surrounding the Mayan calendars one day and laugh. You see, recently they have discovered other Mayan calendars that continue on where the last ones left off. On top of this many Mayan ancestors to this day in Guatemala have been telling everyone who would listen that the new-age crazy people who want so much for the world to end to corruption, violence, hate etc, and open up into a new world with fluffy cats pouring in from another dimension to take place, are wrong! Sorry folks, this just is not what will happen. Sure you can have some fun with an ancient calendar ending and a new one beginning, but do not use it as an opportunity to con other people out of money. The only realization is that the world will get better if people actively participate in making it a better place. If you want to make the world a better place why not donate to a charity who could use the money like the Compassionate Action Network. May your new year be full of Joy and Wonder!
“Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices,
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.”
― William Shakespeare, The Tempest
Don’t Leave home without your towel. While this advice may sound corney, it is not. This is to show how sometimes in life humour is needed to lighten a path that otherwise may seem gloomy.
Towels are always useful, if you are out driving and get caught in a rainstorm walking to your car, and rain gets in your car you have something to dry off with. If you need a handy pillow, then roll up your towel, and viola instant pillow. Or maybe you are taking a nap outside and do not want the sun in your eyes, then you can use your towel to cover up your eyes. Say a meteorite falls to the ground and is very hot, then you have something you can pick it up with. If you have a cat, then you have an instant cat bed.
Hopefully now you can appreciate the practicality and humor a simple object can afford. How it can bring a smile to your face, and improve your mood if you are feeling depressed.
Lately while reading Frank Herbert’s book Dune, I was struck once again by the Litany against Fear, and how powerful words can be in manifesting a state of calm in our minds. Here is the Litany against Fear for those not aware of it:
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
This is one of the many inspiring things I have come across lately. It has the ability to free the mind and carry it to a point where all things are possible.
Lately I have taken up reading again; well, reading science fiction novels. When I was younger I enjoyed reading science fiction books, spending many a summer day out of the heat reading away. These novels influenced me in subtle ways that still flow through me today. Often when talking to people about what books they read, they will say that they only read non-fiction, that they do not like the “unreality” of fictional novels. In my opinion we need a balance in life, not to hot, not to cold. Reading only one type of book leaves our minds in an unbalance, seeking, craving the “unrealities” that make it thrive for new possibilities.
To start things back on the sci-fi reading track I chose Frank Herbert’s Dune, In my younger years of working in bookstores I remember hearing Dune mentioned frequently as a excellent work of science fiction. So I am finally reading it after watching the Sci-Fi mini-series Dune and Children of Dune. For me this is more of a coming back to my roots of my joy of reading that through the years has gone down the meandering road from fervent reading to laxidasical reading. I hope by reading this you are inspired to pick up a book (you know those paper things) and sit down and enjoy a good mental journey into the unknown.
Joseph Campbell was one of those rare minds that history brings forth to open peoples eyes and minds to a new way of seeing the world. His ideas on the Hero with a Thousand Faces, and also the Mythology of the world are thought provoking and enlightening. Lately I’ve been watching the Power of Myth Series, Sukhaviti, and also the Mythos Series. It is very hard to stop watching. Call it a compulsion to learn and grow; a spiritual purification for the mind to wash out all the bogus junk that is thrown at us daily in the way of “spiritual” ideas.
