Ho’o Ponopono

from Joe Vitale

Two years ago, I heard about a therapist in Hawaii who cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients- without ever seeing any of them. The psychologist would study an inmate’s chart and then look within himself to see how he created that person’s illness. As he improved himself, the patient improved.

When I first heard this story, I thought it was an urban legend. How could anyone heal anyone else by healing himself?

Bear: The Keeper of Dreamtime

The Great-grandfather Bear called out into the twilight, asking for guidance and for the safe passage of his relatives. They waited through the darkness of night, listening. As the magic of dawn appeared the movement all around them was assurance that the pilgrimage was set into motion. The Great-grandfather Bear peered out through the rays of the seven stars in heaven; he knew his vision had been fulfilled. All of his relations were heading to the “Valley.” He promised they would survive the starvation winter and time of dreams, despite the presence of a ruthless murderer and abuser.

The Importance of Authentic Emotion

Let’s face facts for a moment here. We all have a prejudice against “negative” emotions. No one want’s to feel sad or hurt or afraid. Everyone wants to have feelings like comfort and joy.

That’s natural enough in and of itself. There is nothing wrong with preference, but often times we get ourselves in trouble with an attachment to (or an avoidance of) certain states of emotion.

It is obviously very common for people to be very resistant to feeling sad or hurt or afraid. Usually we have a comfort zone in certain emotional ranges and types while others we don’t handle very well at all. In general it is the negative emotions that people tend to be opposed to, though sometimes these negative emotions can be attached to positive experiences like trust which can cause serious hardship in relating to others.

Why Evolve is Called Evolve

The Store get’s it’s name from a deep dedication to the conscious participation in the evolution of spirit. Now, technically speaking, spirit in the absolute sense doesn’t evolve at all, it can’t.

But Spirit expresses in the manifest realm, and in this realm we have very basic qualities that express in ever deepening and more complex ways. Perspectives and relationships continue to deepen and the capacity of the Kosmos to relate to, and empathize with itself continues to increase through all forms of life on the planet.

How to Make A Vision Board

What are you manifesting? Vision Boarding is a simple, fun, stress-free way of letting your imagination be free, giving you insight into your soul’s desires and heart’s intentions. It can and will surprise you as a tangible way to explore possibilities and come away with new insights and energy for manifesting your now-visible dreams.

There are 3 main styles of learning. Auditory, Visual and Kinesthetic. To harness the power of manifestation, we need a combination and balance of these three. When setting intentions we often stay in our minds, only thinking about what we aspire to for our lives. True manifestation begins here, but in order to make it real, we have to engage more of our senses. “Vision without action is a dream, says Joel Barker. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.”

We need to: (1) journal about our intentions, (2) pledge them aloud to others and (3) see them with our eyes as often as possible—ideally every day. Vision boards stoke our visual learning style. They serve to funnel and focus our 60,000 daily thoughts into a clear intention for ourselves.

Here are some basic How To’s in making your own Vision Board.

Comfortable with Uncertainty

by Ani Pema Chodron

Those who train wholeheartedly in awakening bodhichitta are called bodhisattvas or warriors — Not warriors who kill but warriors of nonaggression who hear the cries of the world. Warrior-bodhisattvas enter challenging situations in order to alleviate suffering. They are willing to cut through personal reactivity and self deception. They are dedicated to uncovering the basic, undistorted energy of bodhichitta.

A warrior accepts that we can never know what will happen to us next. We can try to control the uncontrollable by looking for security and predictability, always hoping to be comfortable and safe. But the truth is that we can never avoid uncertainty. This not-knowing is part of the adventure. It’s also what makes us afraid.

Communication in the Digital Age

In the modern age of texting, emails, Facebook and instant messaging, we are able to maintain contact with a wider network of people than ever before, and that potential is wonderful because it frees our social interactions from our purely geographical confines in a way that has never before been possible. However, there is a lurking danger that is interwoven in that very same benefit.

The brevity of digital social interactions with which we have become accustomed is, in some respects, required of us by the sheer multitude of human beings who are each looking for our attention. We simply don’t have the time to engage in a lengthy and emotionally meaningful exchange with every person who contacts us via text message. In many regards, even the simple politeness of “hello!” and “how are you doing?” is completely missing from the social equation. Our concern for the people we are talking to becomes implicit in the fact that we are messaging them at all.

Trancending the Ego

Trancending the Ego

Often in new age circles you hear talk of transcending the ego, or egoic attachments. But what is the ego and how can we hope to live a functional life without one?

So what is the Ego?

The Ego, as the term is commonly used in spirituality and philosophy, is simply a collection of ideas and concepts that we have about ourselves. It is who we think we are. The ego is our sense of self; a complex concept stemming from the root concept of “I”. When we think in terms of “I am good” or “I am bad”, Good and Bad are simply vague qualities that we are assigning to the ego.

Throughout the course of our lives, and for various reasons, we judge the qualities that we see in stories of mythical heros and villains, and we sort those qualities into a good pile and a bad pile. Eventually, through a process of constant re-evaluation, we sort those piles into complicated spectrums of better and worse and we begin to use this rating system in a constant, subconscious frenzy of comparing and contrasting our selves with others.

In our daily lives we have our personal favorites, which tend to be the most comfortable and generally highly rated qualities. We take those concepts and stick them like post-it notes to the blank mannequin of the primary ego (the simple concept of “I”). Then we spend most of our time walking around and believing we actually ARE that mannequin covered in post-it notes and we get very upset if someone mentions that those post-it’s are inaccurate or tries to remove them all together.

No Compassion for the Egoic Mind.

It is almost as though your mind will not give up
unless you give the mind up, in a sense.
When I say ‘give it up’, I mean to give up
who are you are in your mind —
you have to give up.
Otherwise, you will speak different things
but you will not change inside,you will not have melted
into that sweetness that comes
when you are really aware of the Truth.
A person cannot change a person;
only Grace and God can change you,
but you have to be humble.

10 October 2012, Monte Sahaja, Pougal
