    To the above video I would add:

    And because we are powerful and send out vibrations reflecting our thoughts and emotions continually, which causes a corresponding change in the environment, it is imperative that we assume responsibility at least for our own contributions to the field.

    And if we are mature about it, and serious, we might consider how we wish to move forward from here.

    Do we wish to make this world a place where we are celebrated as sources of love and resources are spent in the uplifting of the individual so they can add to that wealth in their own unique style?

    Or do we wish to continue exploiting humanity and capitalizing on our base fears?

    That was beautiful.

    The Baghavad Gita is a fount of wisdom on all things spiritual.

    I have a deep suspicion of 'the gods' though. I suspect their true motivation, and so listen for discrepancies that might point to their counter intentions. These little gods want worshipers. They are not concerned with the immortal soul except as it pertains to their agenda.

    They say that the natural is an effect of the spiritual and that therefore the spiritual is paramount. In other words, it is matters of the spiritual that man should concern themselves with. Consequently, the natural world of bodies is considered superfluous and properly under the dominion of man to do with as man sees fit.

    I agree, the world of bodies is unimportant. But, the world of bodies was given a custodian, to look after and manage the natural world. That custodian was/is almost spiritual while in a body, capable of self-reflection, empathy, and rational thinking. Like the captains of our industrial world are looked up to by the rest of us, hoping they will show mercy and uplift the rest of us, we custodians are constantly being asked for mercy by the natural world. But like our betters, we as custodians are reactive, bereft of empathy, and full of superstitions.

    As humans, as spiritual beings in natural bodies, we have a responsibility, not to the natural world, since bodies are ultimately extraneous, but to each other. We owe each other custodial care. We are the only ones who can do that on this world. This care, again, is not for me - I don't care. It is for you and you and you.

    I observe that we could turn this boat around in an instant and chart a new course. That takes you and you and you.

    Suffering is the path of the ignorant - Joy and bliss is the realm of the informed/transformed. As custodians our job is to make of this place a heaven on earth, for our bodies in the little time they have here can do much more good if happy than if struggling to make ends meet.

    THE YOGIS OF TIBET | Very very Rare Documentary Film

    Original film description:
    YOGI (yo-ge)
    An individual who has spent years in isolated retreat practising secret self-transforming physical and mental exercises, and through these techniques has developed extraordinary control over both mind and body.
    The yogis in this film took unprecedented risks. Once vowed to extreme secrecy to maintain then purity of their practices, they agreed to these unique interviews and rare demonstrations to help preserve for posterity their vanishing culture

    The Pleiadian video that triggered my Kundalini Awakening.

    There is a lot on this video relevant to this time about being controlled and what is currently going on.
    Talks about holographic inserts in to the world and frequency control to keep us spiritually unaware and control us

    Interesting. I had an awakening that coincided with my first reading of this book over 20 years ago. For about a 3 month period I experienced something that in retrospect I would describe as a simultaneous state of complete non-attachment and deep connectivity to everything. I didn't have the sense that it was 'caused' by the reading of the book necessarily, but there's no doubt that I connected with the book deeply, and still feel a familiar stirring as I am listening to it again now. Thank you for sharing it.

    The Futility of Egoic Reaction & Navigating Our Awakening
    Sometimes it may be difficult to navigate the path of awakening, aligning both an inner and outer world. In this issue from Evolving Toward Freedom, Eckhart artfully describes the arising of presence on both the personal and societal levels: the futility of Egoic Reaction, and how we can practically navigate the process ourselves.

    Living Without Ego Mooji
    Walk with Moojibaba

    Moojibaba addresses what happens when one becomes increasingly detached to the world and talks about the inner experience of those who begin to transcend the pull of the mind.

    “The more you grasp of your true nature, the more you are living constantly in a field of peace and a calm mind. In the inner realization of the Truth, you are discovering something tremendous.

    The peace that I speak about is coming from the Truth within you.”

    Some deeds of love

    For nothing in the world and for the sake of no one and nothing, it is not appropriate to do the slightest harm,
    however, in order to bring help to those who need it, you can sometimes postpone a good work or replace it with a better one,
    for then you did not destroy the good but changed it into a greater one.

    We must suffer the imperfection of another, because imperfection is also accepted by the Earth.

    What man cannot accomplish in himself or in others, he must suffer patiently, until the conscience commands otherwise.
    Think that maybe it's better to be like that, to have patiently tried to suffer kindly.

    Strive patiently to suffer the shortcomings and weaknesses of others, whatever they may be,
    because, maybe, you also have many of these that others have to suffer. True piety is gentle and patient, because it shows you who you are ... try.

    You have to learn to break yourself in many things, if you want to keep peace and good understanding with others, which is not a small thing to live in a continuous form of teaching others by listening to them in the first place, so never give occasion to complain against yourself and be steadfast in believing in doing the best deeds for others, for change, until death.

    Clothes and haircuts mean little. The change of habits and the perfect killing of unfit "passions" make the true MAN. Let us look for nothing but pure consciousness in the chamber of the soul, let's read what touches our heart rather than what moves the mind away.
    Perfect piety in perfect wisdom bring the richness of living in the true freedom of the spirit... gain the eternity...

    With the best of intentions and the utmost respect, I hope I am allowed to write here today

    About listening and obedience

    It is a great thing to be able to live in deep obedience to people's desires and hopes, protecting others, protecting yourself and anyway you are always better protected when you listen and not when you command.

    To command is to implicitly doubt our own performance in any thing or deed, therefore, not to believe too much in our opinion, however not to be above the other opinions, history proves that utility often obeys and does not command, it is not a philosophy, it is just the payment of a proven circumstance.
    I have often heard it said that it is better to listen and receive advice than to give it.
    It can also happen that everyone's opinion is good, but not wanting to receive the opinion of others when circumstances or reason require it, we may show pride and stubbornness sometimes.

    One of the connections between people is not necessarily gravity but its form of embracing through obedience, an embrace that it will still keeps us steady and orderly.
    We do not need to acquire a wealth, as long as for this, at the first impulse, we leave with despair from our own range of action and development, the courage will trouble us and will lose us through places where we hardly get out.

    The patience of an insult from someone is in fact almost instantly the rebuke of the conscience of the one who created this sadness, the remedy is the complete audacity in peace, to accept any attempt.

    The cause of a research can be almost instantly the own contemplation that sometimes we ask or not, but obviously it is that most of the time we receive the contemplation without understanding it and only sometimes we deserve to cherish it in the highest and purest way.

    The weights of anger are greedy and insatiable and hang heavily on the scales of our own evolution, and he who agrees in purity and beauty of inner thought despises to carry the weights of balance after him and mediates the balance when he balances himself, and the secret of all weight is, at weighing, to take into account and measuring the weight of the weight

    The farther the tongue moves away from too much speech, the more light it receives to distinguish thoughts, for even the most blessed mind is confused by much speech, which is why, often, writing in contemplation enriches, and regulates the passion of to rush into thinking.

    The mastery of words in the waking hour of thoughts of peace, protects us from the chase of superficiality.
    Those who research their soul values ​​hour by hour,
    through the smile of those around them, they will enjoy new discoveries and those who control the gaze of the mind starting from the depths of the soul, will find responsibility in the state of happiness of those around them.

    He who receives the rich reward by praise, will have to use the reward further in the service of building good souls around him.

    Friendship is the order of graceful humility, and self-control with anyone else is like the clear sky in a wonderful spring.

    The silence in the emotion of always giving to those around us is incessant meditation on the beauty that surrounds us at every step.
    As in the moments of peace and serenity on the sea seen dolphins swim, so in times of peace and serenity on the sea of ​​the heart, undisturbed by anger and impulses, the mysteries and discoveries of consciousness born with us and through us, always move.

    The source of soul strengthening promises moments of knowledge and skill in the giving of love. When we feel that the walls of our senses are collapsing, in fact wisdom begins there.


    Experience does not consist in declaring that you have researched, and are aware of something, the attempt with the facts integrated in the true utility of a testimony, balances the patience to find the rudder further in the freedom to create substantially a sphere of good.

    We cannot run away from the edges of our own consciousness, and after a journey with many difficulties in a continuous run on a stadium, the battle time will end, the resistance is inevitable, but we cannot turn our backs when the gates are wide open.

    For a more relaxed note, though, I thank Chris for "hosting" me, and I am addressing a happy song for him,
    so... thank you Chris, and everyone else

    Yazoo Happy People




    and
