Healing and Transformation

https://vimeo.com/28976969Manchester burns—another wound in humanity’s chest. If our immediate reaction is shock, horror and grief, then perhaps we become angry.

This serves a purpose, and it is healthy to be angry when attacked. If we can release our pain, stand with the victims in peace, and contemplate suffering and how we can shift the collective energy, it will advance the cause of peace far more than reacting with more hatred. We cannot change evil by countering with evil. The Buddha taught: “For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love. This is an unalterable law.”

Reacting to terrorism with more terror only fans the flames of hatred. We cannot bring peace by more antipathy. The only way to peace is via peace. The only way to bring about peace is to look within at our nature, to embrace the practice of compassion, loving-kindness and tolerance. Only love will bring us out of darkness. Only our love for ourselves and each other will heal the collective suffering and blindness. As Marianne Williamson said—“as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

Manchester mourns. We cannot let our comrades die in vain. Standing together for the light—to stand for the powers of goodness, the mastery of kindness, love, forgiveness and grace—these are the hallmarks of human development and evolution. Spiritual integrity, wholeness and kindness, and following the pathway to goodness is the only way forward for humanity. It is time to expand our awareness and set new intentions for our world. Healing our collective trauma takes a willingness from each one of us to heal and forgive ourselves from within. The test is one of faith. Have we lost faith in the light—or do we still believe in the light forces of hope and innate goodness?

Only awareness and coming back to fundamental spiritual values of unity, forgiveness, understanding and kindness will bring the world back to a positive light. May we all feel alive with the unity of the Divine spark within glowing and throbbing within the heart of humanity. The love of our Creator and all of creation is truly limitless.

We are one heart together as love—as it is written in the bible:

“I say, ‘You are gods;

you are all children of the Most High.’”

~ Psalms: 82:6, Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Our role on the planet is to raise the frequency of peace, love and compassion from within. As Mohandas Gandhi taught, “Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.”

We live in a world of facades of cascading vibrational illusions that stand for reality. Our conditioning comes from old belief systems based on the ego-self that taught separation, materialism and greed, a competition-mindset—always focused on the self instead of on co-operation and co-creation. Our history is filled with control and manipulation by dominating forces seeking to build empires. When we act out of ego, we act out of limitation, we easily fall into the trap of fear, hatred and blame.

Evil is only relative, reflecting the apparent limitation of unconditional love. We have all inherited this evil. The cause is a limitation placed on that which is unlimited. The true cause of this is doubt. Judgements of limitation and extreme bias only place shields over people’s eyes and blankets over their spirits. There are many aspects of relative truth and absolute reality. This field of creation consists of worlds within worlds. From our perspective, we can only glimpse the reasons and reasoning behind events.

Vivekanada spoke of the illusory separation and ultimate union with the godhead in a speech on November 18, 1896: “We are like silkworms; we make the thread out of our own substance and spin the cocoon and in course of time are imprisoned inside. But this is not forever, for in the cocoon we shall develop spiritual realisation and like the butterfly come out free.”

We live in a world of constant change. Impermanence is our teacher—the only reality is flux. All is within the mind to be healed and changed. The Ascended Masters of our past did not want religions—they wanted enlightenment. They did not want war—they wanted peace. Peace must always begin within before being externally manifested.

We each have our own path. How we respond is not the same. There isn’t a right way or a wrong way.

Sri Chinmoy wrote so evocatively—

“Life is given to each human being
For a very special purpose.
This secret each human being
Must discover for himself.”

Let’s stand together for Manchester—in memory of all those souls who lost their lives prematurely—for the sacredness of each human life, for love and for peace.  _______________________________________________________

https://www.flickr.com/photos/tais/24762390Manchester in tears, yet another attack and more senseless violence. I breathe in and I breathe out.

Manchester is in chaos as intense energies and raging wings storm the planet whilst some are still sleeping. Is there any sense to be made of this event? In times of upheaval, people seek answers and seek comfort in a higher power.

Who is the real enemy – external or within? Who are we fighting against? Perhaps it is our light that we fear most?

In the years to come, it seems inevitable we will face more tribulations. Will we see beyond the illusion or be sucked into a vortex of shadow? Will we react fearfully or respond with grace?

We are all under attack from extremism from the Middle East to America, Asia, Russia, Europe and all the world. We are all targets of the dark forces and that actually unites us. Humanity is at war with the darkness and in our plight, we are one. The real enemy is darkness. The faceless enemy is within just as much as it is on the external plain of existence. Something unites us all—that is love. It does not have a religion, nor a philosophy attached to it.

What is darkness – what is it inside that corrupts a human soul? What is it that ignites the flame of tyranny, the evil of wanting to harm others? Inside our soul, where is the light? The forces of darkness and derision have always been here. We all have something to look at within. And we know that it is the love (or lack thereof) that drives evil onward.

Blame is too easy. Doubts are all over, everywhere. People doubt and want to think negative things; when suspicion prevails, all we get are the same empty sound-bytes.

These forces that want to destroy life are fearful of the light, fearful of love, they feel such emptiness that they want to destroy the light. They do not love themselves, but feel a hatred of life itself. Only a mind under a cloud of fear and suffering would support such evil acts.

The cleansing is difficult as catharsis must involve a shedding of the old—a releasing and letting go of fear, grief, and so many old beliefs. We cannot escape our individual responsibility as all of humanity is under attack. When one person suffers, we all suffer. We are all inwardly responsible and outwardly influential. Purging is only a part of the process, it is not perpetually in motion. Collectively, we are co-creating all of this. We can change what we see now with love.

The human community must ask ourselves who we are. Our self-identity is key: how do we define ourselves? Are we divine souls united under One Creator, or are we divided and separated predators battling amongst each other for limited resources?

Our true nature is not evil, violent, wicked, or devious. Within all of us is the seed of God, the seed of goodness, light, unconditional love and purity. We each have a saint glowing within, a shining star of grace inside. Our essential nature is not darkness, it is starlight. May we see our light manifest in the world and shine upon all those who suffer.

Outside of the energy of fear, we have bountiful reminders that expand our ability to worship the Creator, to raise one’s affirmations to the stars. The only true religion is love. Uniting against hatred is not to pretend that hatred doesn’t exist—it is to raise and elevate human possibility, to reach for greater achievements—more love, more forgiveness, more grace—not for ephemeral, vain and selfish attainments like revenge.

Now is the time to be enter the love vibration that will unify and elevate us all.

Illumination comes from stillness. Peace arises naturally after a raging storm has swept across the landscape. One cannot force peace as it comes from within—it comes from the heart. It’s important to recognise that spreading the message of peace expands the vibration of peace. Then it follows that peace lives in our actions.

We will arise like doves again from the ashes renewed and reinvigorated, ready to love all that is with our passion undimmed. We will step into the light again, this time taking all of humanity with us.

Animals (including the human being) have two guiding polarities and co-creating energies called masculine and feminine. These energies are unfolded within each being. In the external world, they fuse and synthesise in the sexual union between male and female, as well as in sexual unions between any grouping of people (notably including gay and lesbian).

The physical world is a manifestation of the inner world.

Masculine energy is active, outward, demonstrative, strong and characterised by being a ‘protector’ of the weak. A healthy masculine has a warrior spirit brought out when appropriate, whereas an unhealthy masculine is a self-serving aggressor. According to Ronna Herman, spiritually the masculine “is divine will, power, and purpose-mental and outward focused attributes of the Creator.”  

Feminine energy is receptive, inward, nurturing and characterised by being intuitive. Her compassionate nature serves others before herself. An unhealthy feminine is weak and insipid. Edith Stein (St Theresa Benedicta of the Cross) wrote, “Woman naturally seeks to embrace that which is living, personal, and whole. To cherish, guard, protect, nourish and advance growth is her natural, maternal yearning.” Stein believed that a “woman’s soul is more intensely present and lives in all parts of the body.”

The Divine Sexual Union brings these two forces of masculine and feminine together. It is crucially both a physical, emotional and spiritual force of creation. The sexual energy unlocks a powerful and explosive force that remembers the force of our creation.

Our energy bodies wish to dance in emptiness. Our physical bodies yearn for communion with the Great Earth Spirit, the cosmic force called “Oneness.” Oneness is a unified force of awareness, where masculine and feminine creative forces collide, connect, flow into each other, and start the dance of love called sex.

This suppressed force still has great power as even though society keeps trying to control it and pervert it, it is still our link to our primal origin. We all come from the union of masculine (father) and feminine (mother). We cannot escape this, even if we are created via IVF (In vitro fertilisation). Our origin is within the divine feminine womb. Our earthly mother, through the force of life, nurtures us into existence. And then we become creatures of Earth, in the endless cycle of moving spirit and life cycles. We are born in innocence, and our yearning always to go back to the Great Earth Mother Spirit, the womb-space that kept us safe.

There is this grand unifying force in sexuality that binds us to another human oasis.

How do you use your sexual energy? What does it mean to your life?

What could be more sacred than allowing your soul to melt into the arms of another soul?

https://pixabay.com/p-2176668/?no_redirectIn my feeling-body, I have an awareness–call it being mindful of the sensation or lightness of being. My feeling-body is that essence of personality and feeling that I carry with me wherever I go. In this space of feeling, resides my inner child, because it is this energy that we have carried with us since birth and into previous lifetimes. Having the sensitivity to be in tune with this feeling-body, we may go to either extreme of dancing in celebration, or imploding in despair, and usually residing somewhere in between.

And in this way we search for wholeness.

It’s a riddle being in a human and searching for happiness, for enlightenment and for wholeness as we are body and soul, physical and spiritual beings, embodied and incorporeal.

For what is all the searching we do to find wholeness–to find ourselves–to end our suffering? The author Adyashanti speaks of reaching the climax of his search and arriving defeated at the realisation that he had achieved nothing…“in the moment I realized there was literally nothing I could do, everything changed. And then this great revelation occurred where I realized that I was both nothing and everything, simultaneously.”

If we are still searching, we are still striving to find something, then “something in us is still struggling against what is.” (Adyashanti)

With the agility of a kōan, questions arise from the depths of searching, yet once one stops searching, one discovers one knows nothing. Then everything becomes clear.

It is a kōan that the more one searches, the less one finds.

Zen Buddhism offers stories that open and reveal some inner wisdom that unlocks an awareness. These conundrums or kōan are signposts towards enlightenment, or what the Japanese call satori.

“Out of nowhere, the mind comes forth.” – The Diamond Sutra

A kōan is a riddle that takes a person outside of logical thinking into the “great doubt.” In this state, he may cultivate awareness. Traditionally, a kōan resembles a dialogue designed to break through rational habits and reach into the unreachable emptiness or stillness of enlightenment. In satori, we can meet the Great Emptiness or Oneness, the Eternal flow, the Endless Ocean and the Infinite Desert.

The interaction between Zen master and student was designed to test the progress of the student toward insight. A kōan, by-design impossible to solve with reasoning, relies on stopping the thought-process to introduce a new state of consciousness.

‘What was your original face—the one you had before your parents gave birth to you?
