Enlightenment

18 Dec

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant gorgeous, talented and fabulous? You are a child of god. You playing it small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

  —Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love

Prinicple of Polarity

21 Nov
“Everything is dual, everything has polarity, everything has its opposite. All things are paired by an opposite, the similar and opposite are the same, as opposites are united in nature, differing only in degree. The ends meet, all half-truths are united in completion and the paradox is reconciled.”

THE KYBALION

The hermetic teachings say of the diametric difference that exists between seemingly opposite things is only a question of degree. And they affirm that every pair of opposites can be reconciled, the thesis and the antithesis are identical in nature and differ only in degree. The universal reconciliation of opposites is recognized in this Principle of Polarity. Examples of this principle are everywhere, when the real nature of things is examined. Spirit and matter are no other than poles of the same thing, being merely planes seemingly separated by degrees of vibration. The ALL and the many are the same, their only enduring difference being in the degree they manifest to the mind. In like manner, the LAW and the many laws are separate poles of the same, and a single, thing. It is the same with the PRINCIPLE and principles, with the infinite MIND and the finite mind.

On the physical plane we find that hot and cold are identical in nature, their only difference being a simple question of degrees. The thermometer indicates degrees of temperature, being the lower pole being called “cold” and the higher one called “heat”. Between these two there are many degrees of hot and cold and whichever name we may give them is correct. Of any two degrees, the higher one is always hot in comparison with the lower one, which is therefore colder. There is not any one place on the thermometer at which heat absolutely ceases and cold begins. Everything can be broken down into measurements of higher or lower vibrations. The same words: “higher” and “lower”, that we are compelled to use are nothing more than the two poles of the same thing; the terms are relative. It is the same with “East” and “West”. If we travel around the world in an Eastern direction we will end up in a place to the “West” of the place from which we start. If we go sufficiently far to the North we will be traveling South, and just the opposite.

This fact is what allows for the hermetic mental transmutation from one mental state to another by shifting the polarity. Different types of things cannot be transmuted into something else, but a thing can be refined without becoming something else. Therefore love cannot be transformed into east or west, red or violet, but can change to hate and equally hate can change to love, by changing polarity. Bravery can be transformed into fear and vice versa. Things that are hard can become soft, hot changed to cold, and so on but always it is things changing by degrees within the range of their own kind. In this way a cowardly man, if his mental vibrations rise on the scale between fear and bravery, may become filled with courage and scorn danger. Likewise, someone who is lazy can become active and energetic by polarizing toward the desired quality.

Understanding this great hermetic principle allows a better understanding or our mental states, and those of others also. Further, it becomes apparent that those mental states differ only by degrees, and by understanding this fact we are able to elevate inner vibrations through will, changing their polarity. In this we become the owner of our thoughts, instead of being enslaved and made servant to them. This knowledge will also allow you to offer assistance to others by using these methods appropriately to change their polarity. It is desirable to become familiar with this principle because understanding it well will provide greater light when dealing with dark and difficult problems.

Asha

21 Nov

ASHA VAHISHTA
Truth, Righteousness, Cosmic Order

The Divine Attribute ASHA, or Truth/Righteousness, is perhaps the keystone of Zoroastrian thought.What does ASHA mean, and how is it important in Zoroastrianism?

The Avestan word Asha is related to the Sanskrit root RTA which means “eternal law and order.” The Indo-European word- root became, in modern languages, such words as “right,” “righteousness,” “ritual,” and “rite.” Asha means many related things, and is untranslatable by one English word. You need a whole constellation of words to translate it: righteousness, law, cosmic order, truth, justice. It is one of the seven Amesha Spentas, the seven primal emanations of God, through which God’s will is done and through which we reach God. What really is Asha, as the Prophet Zarathushtra conceived of it in his poetic Gathas?

Asha is first of all Truth, the opposite of the Lie, and encompasses all clear and objective vision, all honesty and unclouded thought, word, and deed. Then it is “Righteousness,” which involves a commitment to good actions that build society and lead toward health, peace, and good will. These actions are not prescribed, as they are in Jewish or Islamic sacred Law, but they will vary as the conditions of history or society vary. However, the underlying call to right action remains the same.Asha is also LAW – not a prescribed set of commandments, but a description of the laws that rule our lives and the universe around us. Asha is impersonal. In Zoroastrianism, Ahura Mazda is not the type of God who will suspend the laws of reality in order to make a point or to help someone. In Zarathushtra’s concept of divine governance, there are no suns standing still, miraculous healings, miraculous plagues or deliverances, no resurrections from the dead. In all the Gathas there are no miracles or supernatural occurrences; this is astonishing for something composed 3500 years ago. In the way of Asha, God set up the laws of reality, both in the natural world and the social world – and he will not break them.

Thus the law of Asha describes what actually happens, not what should happen. It encompasses the law of gravity and all physical laws discoverable by science as well as the laws of consequences governing our own behavior, which are discoverable by (sometimes painful) experience. Throw a rock in the air, and, if unhindered in its descent, it will come down – that is Asha. Overindulge in liquor one night, and wake up with a painful hangover – that is also Asha, the law of consequences. If you do wrong, quite often the world itself will punish you, either by its own laws, or by someone taking the law into his own hands. But what of those who do wrong and prosper, who die happily after a life of evil? Then one must look to the world to come, which is also under the rule of Asha, where, as Zarathushtra states, the “Best Existence” (heaven) is waiting for those who choose good in this world, and where the “Worst Existence” (hell) is reserved for those who do evil. This “hell” is not eternal, since all things will be purified in the end of time, but it is long enough to purify evildoers.

Therefore, to praise Asha as the “best” (Avestan, vahishta) is to put yourself in harmony with cosmic order, and to commit yourself to the search for Truth in your spiritual, moral, and work life. Asha indwells within you, as it does in everyone, and it is divine. Every time you do a righteous deed, no matter how small, you are bringing yourself closer to God through Asha Vahishta.

The text of the Gathas itself demonstrates just how important Asha is for Zoroastrian thought and practice. Almost every single verse of these poetic hymns contains the word ASHA somewhere. This constant repetition is more than just a buildup of information or a prophet’s rhetorical device. It is a sacred litany, weaving the word into the mind of the listener until it becomes a permanent part of spiritual consciousness.

Is Asha Vahishta just a glorified version of the Ten Commandments – a set of religious rules writ large? Not really. Asha is not like the “Ten Commandments,” because the Commandments, and the Torah, are prescriptive. Asha is descriptive. The commandment says, for instance,”Thou shalt not steal.” What Asha would say, if it could talk, would be: “If you steal, you may get the owner of what you stole angry, and he will punish you or the civil law will do that; and if you get away with it in this world, when you die and come to judgement, it will be remembered that you stole.”Asha is not “rules,” but “law,” not in the sense of “thou shalts” or “thou shalt not’s” but in the sense of geometric axioms, or the laws of physics. I like to think of Asha as “the software of the universe” or perhaps its “operating system” in that it orders the working of all things, whether we like it or not. And unlike software, it can’t be changed. Can the speed of light be changed, or the laws of mathematics or physics? The scientific method applies to Asha. There is no immutable Scripture telling us what Asha is; we learn by experience, hypothesis, experiment, proof, and demonstration. If what seems to be Asha doesn’t make sense, it is not that Asha is wrong, but our own idea of it, our ignorance of Asha as it truly is – and it is necessary for us to return to our investigations.

The later traditions of Zoroastrianism, taking inspiration from ideas in Zarathushtra’s Gathas and other early Zoroastrian teaching and practice, have associated ASHA with the “element” of Fire. In the Gathas, Fire is not only a means of illumination and warmth but the fire of purification and refining, such as goes on in smelting ore. It is also a symbol of ever-vigilant Justice. As the Divine Attributes became personified as the Amesha Spentas, Asha became the Amesha Spenta whose creation and jurisdiction was that of Fire. The primal prominence of Fire in Zoroastrian religious life only underscores just how central Asha is in the Zoroastrian Way.

Benefits of meditation

21 Nov

Meditation heals at every level. Physically, a meditative state: releases toxins, relieves stress, enhances relaxation, improves heart/lung efficiency, increases energy, reduces fatigue, and increases oxygen throughout the body. For emotional wounds, psychological trauma, meditation is a soothing balm and an accommodating resource to release unneeded baggage. Finally, to make sense of the chaos – at times
ego-produced, at times out of our hands – meditation helps us step back and take a grander perspective beyond the personal.

Heart Chakras

20 Nov

I know I began an introduction of Chakras earlier in my blog, and I was going to continue from the first chakra which is “root” and continue as such. But the creator always lead me and I was focusing on other things, ie. Universal Laws and The tree of Life.

But now I am back, in the quest to learn who I am, I have found I can not go any further until I open my heart Chakra. Mine is CLOSED. While I was getting my aura cleansed the facilitator advised me I was completely closed. It was also confirmed when another Teacher also found it was closed.

So now I am on a path to open my Heart Chakra because I can not go any further than where I am now until it is open.

Let me tell you how I am feeling. Right now, I don’t believe in love what so ever. I believe everyone is lying and don’t know what love is. So it is hard to receive love from anyone and even more so it is hard to even WANT to open my Heart Chakra.

 

Color: Green, Pink, and sometimes Gold

Element: Air

Sense: Touch

Fundamental Principle: Devotion, self-abandonment

Body Association: Heart, upper back, thorax and thoracic cavity, lower lungs, the blood and circulatory system and the skin

Gland: Thymus, which regulates and controls the lymphatic system

Gems/minerals: Emerald, green and pink tourmaline, malachite, green jade, green aventurine, chrysoprase, kunzite, rose quartz, ruby.
 

Feeding Your Heart Chakra

Healing Emotional Hurts

  • Leafy vegetables: spinach, kale, dandelion greens, etc.
  • Air vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, squash, etc.
  • Liquids: green teas
  • Spices: basil, sage, thyme, cilantro, parsley

Heart Chakra Exercises – Chakracise your heart chakra by doing push ups, swimming (breast stroke), and hugging yourself

DISHARMONIOUS FUNCTIONING
 A malfunctioning Heart Chakra may express itself in various ways. You may want to always be there for others and give freely, but consciously, you may want/expect recognition in return for all the love you give them. Then, if your efforts are not sufficiently appreciated, you may feel deeply disappointed.

You may also feel that you are strong and powerful enough to give away some of your stength but incapable of accepting the love that others may want to give you. In this way, you are unable to open yourself to receiving the love of others. Emotions aligned with tenderness and softness probably embarrass you and make you feel weak, vulnerable to injury and dependent upon the love and affection of others.

You are deeply hurt by rejection, especially after you gathered the courage to open yourself up. When this happens, you feel like withdrawing into your inner shell. You are sad and depressed. You want to give your love but your fear of being rejected makes it impossible. You feel you don’t know how to love, thus reinforcing your shortcomings and inability.

You may compensate for your lack of love by adopting an extremely friendly personality, treating people equally in an impersonal manner without genuine involvement. When your heart is called for, you may evade the situation and shut yourself off because you are afraid of possible injury. If your Heart Chakra is completely closed, you will express coldness, indifference or even “heartlessness.” You are completely out of balance and suffer from depression. Sadly, unhappiness is a way of life for you.

PURPOSE AND FUNCTION
 

The 4th chakra (Heart Chakra) is located in the center of the breast at the height of your heart and opens toward the front. It is the center of the entire chakra system and connects the LOWER (Physical & Emotional Centers) to the three HIGHER (Mental & Spiritual Centers.)

The Heart Chakra is a very important chakra. With the Heart Chakra we find the capability to empathize and sympathize with others. We attune ourselves with the cosmic vibrations and perceive the beauty in nature, music, visual arts and poetry. Here, all images, words and sounds are transformed into feelings.

With every negation and rejection, we regenerate separation and negativity, whereas a positive and loving acceptance (a conscious “yes”) produces vibrations which neutralize (kill, so to speak) negative thoughts and feelings. Simply put, you can neutralize those intense feelings of grief, anger or despair with your loving, unbiased and undivided attention — positive thoughts and feelings.

With our Heart Chakra, we possess a great potential for healing others as well as ourselves. If you suffer from pain or illness, send the afflicted organ or area of your body your loving attention and it will help and accelerate the recuperation period enormously. If we can learn to love from the depths of our own heart and fully accept our entire personality, an opened Heart Chakra can have a spontaneous healing or transforming influence on ourselves and others.

The Heart Chakra radiates colors of green, pink, and sometimes gold. Green is the color of healing and sympathy and harmony. If an enlightened person (ie. someone who can see human auras) perceives a clear, light-green in a person’s heart chakra, this would indicate a well-developed capability to heal, while a golden aura mixed with pink would show a person who lives in pure and selfless love of the Divine.

Within the Heart Chakra is the deepest and most vivid feelings of love. It also plays an important role in refining the perception of an open Third Eye, and it is for this reason that the spiritual schools in the East concentrate particularly on the opening of the Heart Chakra.

 

HARMONIOUS FUNCTIONING
 

Working in harmony with all the other chakras, a completely open Heart Chakra can change the world around you and unite, reconcile, or even heal the person within your surroundings. Your entire being radiates natural warmth, sincerity and happiness. These wondrous energies open the hearts of the people around you, inspiring confidence and creating joy among them. A great compassion and willingness to help others comes perfectly natural to you.

You love for love’s sake. You are motivated by the joy of giving and do not expect to gain anything in return. Your heart is in everything you do. You “unconditionally” love all!

 Excercises to Open your Heart Chakra

Sit cross-legged. Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch. Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breast bone (so a bit above the solar plexus).
Concentrate on the Heart chakra at the spine, level with the heart.
Chant the sound YAM.

picture of position

 

 

Your breathing should be normal, but deep.

1. Sit erect in a straight-back chair. Shut out all sound as best as you can and prevent interruption.

2. Close your eyes and turn your attention toward your heart.

3. In your imagination, enter your heart.

4. To your surprised, you are now standing on a green plain in the countryside. The sky above you is bright pink. In front of you is a green, grassy hill, and on top of the hill is a temple. This temple is your heart. Hold this visualization.

5. Now climb the hill. You walk up the grassy slope to the temple. You climb the steps of the temple and enter the center doorway. Observe the appearance of the temple. Is it swept clean? Or is it covered with dust?

6. Walk into the dimly lit interior and approach the central adytum. As you near, you can see a flickering light within. The flame grows brighter as you approach. It swells and recedes rhythmically with your own heart beat in the bowl-like depression in the center of the room.

7. Gaze upon this flame. Send it your energies. See it respond to your energies, watch it grow bright and strong as it reaches up to touch the ceiling 40 feet above. You are feeding the flame of your heart. You are stimulating it to growth. Breathe deeply and realize in the depth of your being that your heart center is coming alive.

8. Open your eyes and sit in quiet meditation for 5 minutes before rising and terminating the exercises

Something to think about

13 Nov

If the Culture you live does not serve a positive self/collect interest, then you should consider what re-adjustments need to be made in order to serve these interests. Culture serves as a skeletal structure to support the preservation and prosperity of a collective body of people in partnership with the Planet. From this perspective, it is easy to understand that the masses of people suffer from a collective insanity! Anytime that a person continues to use a language, diet, dress and behave in a way that is clearly destructive to themselves and others, this is insanity! Some people will die today holding on to a tradition that died 2,000 years ago.
