    If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. – Wumen Huikai
    Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. – Harriet Beecher Stowe
    Keep believing no matter how things appear. Your vision will carry you through. – Unknown



    a story...

    Epic Battles
    Once upon a time in the Warring States period, the King of Wei was angered when he learned that the King of Chi had betrayed their alliance. Desiring revenge for this betrayal, he wanted to send an assassin to kill the King of Chi.

    Upon hearing this, his general said: “Your Majesty, you are the ruler of a mighty kingdom, so you should not resort to assassination. Give me two hundred thousand soldiers, and I shall conquer Chi, capture its people, punish their king, take away his land, and break him!”

    His advisors knew that no matter how the King decided to proceed, it would lead to widespread chaos and suffering. One of them said to the others: “This is like building a castle ten meters tall, completing its construction, and then destroying the whole thing. We’ve had peace for seven years, which is a great achievement. We should not listen to the general and destroy that peace!”

    None of them could think of a way to convince the King. They advised him to seek the Tao of harmony, but this had no effect. The King seemed dead set on bloodshed.

    Huei Tzu, the wisest of the advisors, decided to ask the Tao sage Daijinren for help. The hope was that perhaps he could talk some sense into the King.

    Upon Huei Tzu’s invitation, Daijinren came to the palace. He spoke with the King, starting with a question: “Your Majesty, there is a small creature known as the snail — do you know of it?”



    The King said: “Of course.”

    Daijinren said: “On the head of the snail, there are two tentacles. On the left tentacle, there is a kingdom called Chushi. On the right tentacle, there is a kingdom called Manshi. These two kingdoms fight each other in epic battles for land. Each battle results in the dead by the tens of thousands, and after it’s over, it takes fifteen more days for the winning side to return from chasing and slaughtering the losing side.”

    “What?” The King was annoyed. Why talk about something as insignificant as a snail? He spoke harshly, with impatience: “This is a fictional tale without any basis in reality!”

    “Your Majesty, allow me to explain and make it more real. First of all, does Your Majesty think there is a limit to heaven or earth, in any direction?”

    The king understood that the sage was referring to the infinity of existence. “No,” he said, “there is no limit.”

    “Once the mind has contemplated this limitless expanse, bring your thoughts back to a kingdom which is limited in size. Doesn’t this kingdom seem much smaller in comparison, almost like it does not exist?”

    The King thought about it, and realized Daijinren was right. “Indeed.”

    Daijinren continued: “Among the kingdoms of this land, there is Wei. Within the Kingdom of Wei, there is the City of Liang. Within the City of Liang, there is a ruler. So… is there a basic difference between this ruler and the Manshi?”

    The King was shocked. The finite kingdoms already seemed small compared to infinity. Wei was but one of the kingdoms, so it’s even smaller. The City of Liang was but one of the many places in Wei, despite being its capital. He was but one person in a city of thousands, despite being the ruler. This meant he was actually a small part of a small part of a small part…

    “No,” he had no choice but to admit. “There is no difference.”

    Finally, it dawned on the King. He thought the snail was insignificant. Now he could see a similar insignificance in himself — as well as the destruction he was about to cause.

    Daijinren left, leaving the King still stunned by his own realization. When Huei Tzu came to ask about the visit, the King said: “My guest is truly a great sage. His wisdom surpasses that of all other sages.”

    Huei Tzu and the other advisors were relieved. They knew the King would now turn his attention to diplomatic solutions… instead of bloodshed.


    Love to you all
    Every human is a question asked to the Spirit of the Universe,again and again,because every human is an endless row of humans and in all humans together dwelling the Great Human Spirit.

    Listening to Ramesh Balsekar

    A good refresher.
    Every thought --every action--or lack of it is Gods will

    " Events happen - deeds are done --there is no individual doer there of."
    All happens according to Cosmic Law.

    We are ""puppets" (The body mind organism), experiencing, witnessing.
    The source is potential energy it acts through "us"
    Ultimately I am That --the impersonal energy.

    If we believe we are the doer that is "Gods" will.
    If we believe that we are individuals doing what we may and reacting according to our conditioning, situations -- then that is "Gods" will.
    There is no environment, no thought, no reaction, no conditioning, without it being the will of "God"
    There can be nothing without consciousness

    However, we must act as though we have free will

    All that seems to be happening is the play of consciousness.
    That includes what is happening in the world just now.

    Stephen Bodian ‘The Seeker is the Sought’ Interview by Renate McNay.
    Stephan is a spiritual teacher who offers Satsangs and Retreats. He is a Psychotherapist and the Founder and Director of ‘The School for Awakening,’ an annual six-month awakening intensive. In 2001 Adyashanti gave him Dharma transmission and invited him to teach. He is the author of several books including “Beyond Mindfulness”, "Wake up Now” and “A Guide to the Journey of Spiritual Awakening.”
    After a difficult Childhood Stephen was longing to transcend the burden of his busy mind, the pain of his Childhood, and his anxiety. He found himself on the doorsteps of Buddhism and Zen and practicing “Mindful Meditation” intensively as a Zen Monk for a decade. He developed the capacity to sit with unwavering focus for hours at a time but after many years of mindfully following his breath he felt that he reached the limits of mindfulness. He felt there was no sign of any insights or awakening. He left the monastery he was in and met the Advaita teacher Jean Klein who told him to “Stop meditating and instead discover the Meditator….don't make Meditation a Habit”. One day driving down the Freeway a phrase Jean Klein had often repeated drifted through his awareness: “The Seeker is the Sought”. Suddenly his reality turned inside out and he had a profound awakening.
    Stephan talks about his journey, the work of Embodiment after Awakening, and reflects on the abuse shown by some spiritual teachers.

    You don’t know how things are going to turn out. Don’t make premature conclusions.The more quiet you are the more you see things as they really are.
    When you see things as they are, your heart will be filled with gratitude and you will grow in wisdom.

    When I was a child, I had an idea. I figured that God does not answer prayers because people are sinners. They do not deserve it. Thus my great idea. I even convinced my friend to join me in my effort.

    The plan: do not sin for 1 week and then ask God to make me able to fly!

    We did not last an hour...and realized quickly that to not sin for a week was impossible.

    + Who Is Jacy?
    + What really happens with predictions and what we see in the public domain.
    + How wounds and distortions can get in the way - and why alchemising them is so important.
    + Jacy’s core message
    + What Jacy feel’s is the collective theme of 2020
    + Where the ‘flat earth’ theory is coming from
    + The 3 layers of imposition

    + The ‘Idiocracy’ and what they’re condemning

    + The real agenda behind ‘Star family coming to save us’
    + Why discernment is so important in ‘channeling’
    + The Age that we are completing
    + What’s going on with the ‘Love + Lighters’
    + How our humanity is being diminished
    + What the matrix is designed to do
    + Adopting spiritual personas that are being sold by the New (c)Age religion
    + The energy of worship and what it’s creating - from God’s to Celebrities
    + The programs that are being imposed on humanity
    + The pressure of ideological perfectionism
    +. What a ‘spiritual person’ must look like
    + Jacy's background and experiences
    + How the New (c)Age rituals are EXACTLY the same as the secret societies many are opposing
    + The truth about the Chakra system and how and why we need to transcend them.
    And so much more...

    I truly hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. And please share with your friends and family who you think will also appreciate hearing this information. I no longer rely on social media channels, as I chose to no longer engage those eco systems a few years ago now, so your shares truly mean a lot to me and my work.

    In Love Liberation and Fortitude,
    George

    THROUGH ME, NOT BY ME, DOING WITHOUT A DOER - PERFECT BRILLIANT STILLNESS - Part Seven - Audiobook

    Written by David Carse. Part Seven of Perfect Brilliant Stillness.
    "Among Human Beings it is said that any individual
    human being can attain enlightenment. Now, within
    the context in which it is said, this is undoubtedly true.
    However, it tells you absolutely nothing about enlightenment
    - because 'enlightenment' means precisely: the impossibility
    of the existence of any individual human being.
