My Message to the World
I am love, you are love.
Love is the answer to all the healing this world needs. It is up to us as a human species and give as much love as possible to every thing, being, creature and life force. It is up to us all to save this planet by helping those in need around the world. All the pain and suffering caused by the natural disasters that have been occurring need our love and prayers. All you have to do is close your eyes, focus your attention on the person, place or thing that needs your healing love. Then say over and over to yourself silently or out loud, ” I am sending you love, light and healing”, and so it will be done. If we all together to send love to the hospitals, schools, churches, homeless, plants, animals, creatures, earth, sky, water, sun, stars and all in the universe who may need it. Our planet will be healed, and humanity will be free of pain, for love will rein. Let’s all together and do our parts to help heal humanity, the world and the universe.
*WHAT IS HATHA YOGA?*
The human being functions in polarity and this is expressed in the meaning of the word HATHA. HA means “the sun, heat, light, energy, creativity, activity, passion, positive”, and THA means “the moon, cool, reflective, receptive, negative”.
The terms positive and negative also refer to the electrical chemical charge of the body, the right side being positively charged and the left side negatively.
We are dealing with 2 extremes: heat and cold, activity and inactivity, positive and negative. The mind also has it’s own polarities. Life is mainly of such a nature; we move from one extreme to another. This takes place because of preconceived ideas and a wide range of opinions and assumptions.
The ultimate goal of yogic practise is to be in the centre.
YOGA means to yoke, union, to join together. Yoga is the bringing together of the various polarities within, in order to reach a state of balance and transcend our limited vision. We have learned to cover up our many fears very well.
In HATHA YOGA we confront our fears as well as our potentials by balancing attention between the body and the mind.
(*Hatha Yoga the hidden language*)
Yoga is to still the patterning of consciousness. It is only when you find that still point in the mind, where thoughts no longer exist, the truth of your existence, your pure awareness can abide in its very nature.
Asana (Yoga Pose/Posture) awakens the observing part of the self – the witnessing function – and as this becomes stronger and steadier, previously split off or disavowed aspects of experience become available to awareness. The mind begins to know itself – to know its exiled parts. This observing function is like a powerful searchlight that automatically scans the entire field of experience. As it gets stronger it reaches into the dark corners, exposing memories of experiences that could not be digested at the time they occurred.
In posture practise, we find the seat from which we can witness the play of experience. Asana cultivates the still point at the centre of the dance of experience, the still point at the centre of the play of sensation. The immovable spot from which we can witness the chaining of sensations, thoughts, feelings and actions.
(*By Stephen Cope The Wisdom of Yoga*)
Do You Love Yourself?
Everyone has a price, and life respects that price. But that price
is not measured in dollars or gold, it’s measured in love. More than that it is measured in self love. How much you love yourself – that is your price – and life respects that price. When you love yourself your price is very high, which means your tolerance for self abuse is very low. Its very low because you respect yourself. You like yourself the way you are, and this makes your price higher. If you don’t like things about yourself, your price gets lower.
Sometimes the self-judgement is so strong that people need to be numb just to be with themselves. If you don’t like a person you can walk away from that person. If you don’t like a group of people you can walk away from that group of people. But if you don’t like yourself it doesn’t matter where you go, you will always be right there. To avoid being with yourself you take something to numb you, to take your mind away from yourself. Perhaps some alcohol will help. Perhaps some drugs will help. Perhaps eating – just eat, eat, eat. The self abuse can get much worse. There are people who really feel self hatred. They are self – destructive killing themselves little by little, because they don’t have the courage to kill themselves fast.
If you observe self – destructive people, they attract people just like them. What do we do when we don’t like ourselves? We try to get numb with alcohol to forget our suffering. That’s the excuse we use. Where do we get alcohol? We go to a bar and drink. And guess who’s going to be there? People like us who try to avoid themselves also, who also try to get numb. We get numb together, we start talking about our suffering, and we understand each other very well. We even start to enjoy it. We understand each other perfectly because we vibrate in the same frequency. We are both being self – destructive. Then I hurt you and you hurt me – a perfect relationship in hell.
What happens when you change? For whatever reason, you no longer need the alcohol. It’s ok now to be with yourself, and you really enjoy it. You no longer drink, but have the same friends, and everyone’s drinking. They get numb, and they start getting happier, but you can clearly see that their happiness is not real. What they call happiness is a rebellion of their own emotional pain. In that happiness they are so hurt that they have fun hurting other people and hurting themselves.
You no longer fit in, and of course they resent you because you are no longer like them. Hey, you are rejecting me because you no longer drink with me, you no longer get high with me. Now you have to make a choice: You can step back, or go to another level of frequency and meet people who finally accept themselves like you do. You find that there is another realm of reality, a new way of relationship, and you no longer accept certain kinds of abuse.
(*The Mastery of Love By Don Miguel Ruiz*)
Waiting is a state of mind. Basically it means that you want the future; you don’t want the present. You don’t want what you’ve got. And you want what you haven’t got. With every kind of waiting, you unconsciously create inner conflict between your here and now, where you don’t want to be, and the projected future, where you want to be. This greatly reduces the quality of your life by making you loose the present.
Example: many people are waiting for prosperity. It cannot come in the future. When you honour, acknowledge, and fully accept your present reality – where you are, what you are doing right now – when you fully accept what you have got, you are greatful for what you have got, greatful for what is, greatful for being. Gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life now is true prosperity. It cannot come in the future. Then, in time, that prosperity manifests for you in various ways.
(*The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle*)
How You Invented Yourself
You have been inventing the body from the day you were born, and the reason you don’t see it that way is that the process comes so naturally. It’s easy to take for granted and that’s the problem. The flaws you see in your body today aren’t inherent. They aren’t bad news delivered by your genes or mistakes made by nature. Your choices played a part in the body you created, either consciously or unconsciously.
Here’s a list of physical changes that you have made and continue to make. It’s a very basic list, all medically valid, and yet hardly any part of your body is excluded.
(By Deepak Chopra *Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul*)
The Souls Love is:
(By Deepak Chopra *Reinventing the Body, Ressurecting the Soul*)
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
(Corinthians 13 *The Holy Bible*)
The Energy to Change – Healthy and Unhealthy Energy
The difference between healthy and unhealthy energy can be summarized as follows:
Healthy energy is flowing, flexible, dynamic, balanced, soft, associated with positive feelings.
Unhealthy energy is stuck, frozen, rigid, brittle, hard, out of balance, associated with negative emotions.
You can bring healing to any aspect of your life by shifting an unhealthy energy state into a healthy one. People who can’t find a way to change are entangled in one or more of the qualities just listed. The hard, frozen looks of hatred that spouses exchange in a bad marriage express one kind of energy, while the soft, loving looks exchanged in a happy marriage express the other. The distinction between physical and nonphysical is no longer relevant. In your body the soft, flowing blood fats that are healthy can become hard, stuck deposits of plaque in your coronary arteries, which are unhealthy. In society the soft, flowing exchange between people who are tolerant of each other can turn into hard, stuck feelings of predjudice and animosity.
There are strong indications that energy is more powerful than matter. Studies in longevity, for example, examine why some people live to a healthy old age. Their secret isn’t good genes, diet, not smoking, or even exercise, beneficial as all those things may be. The highest correlation for reaching 90 to 100 years of age in good shape is emotional resilience, the ability to bounce back from lifes setbacks. That fits neatly with one of the qualities of healthy energy, flexibility.
