Throughout time, there are certain symbols and phrases that have been utilized for misdeeds. Knowledge of horrific acts are wide-spread, known to many, and symbols are associated with these events. For example the swastika, and its real meaning.
“The Swastika is a holy sign and symbol from thousands of years ago. Practically, the only symbol that is more important in the Vedic tradition is the Sanskrit Om Symbol.”
Evil has made practice of claiming sacred symbols and warping the meaning of them, skewing peoples minds, manipulating thought, stripping humanity of its sacredness … one symbol and practice at a time.
It is a difficult to own these symbols and meanings, to practice the spiritual rites that go along with them. There is a lot of push to eliminate certain symbols from those who have suffered much trauma and pain due to the manipulation of sacred signs. The only way to heal, is to reclaim these symbols. Strongly wearing them, and stating for all to see and hear, “Evil has no power, the attempt to strip what is good from us … from this world, will not be.”
In life, there are those who wish to inflict anxiety and self doubt upon people. They have practiced and become very good at doing so. Reacting to these manipulations in a negative light, being vulnerable and going into victim mode, is what gives them power, your power.
Refuse to be part of this sinister game. Only you can decide what has meaning for you, what inspires you and what you hold sacred. When someone comes along and gives a foul meaning to a sacred symbol or practice, and it is absorbed and allowed to take hold, by you, then you cede your power. Reclaim it! This power of what is good does not belong to manipulators!
You are a sanctified and beautiful giver of life! You are a powerful creator who does not need to bow to the will of men. You know this already.
Not knowing, they assume … thinking they know better than the experiencer, they become judgmental and cruel, lacking awareness that their behavior, which is based on ‘lack of knowing’, causes them to spew negativity.
So it is in the world.
Only when there is an awareness of how an individuals own actions and words affect the whole, and a conscious choice is made to be more kind, will things shift.
Fortunately, many people are doing just this.
Good people, who are adored and respected, admired for their successes, have this habit of judging without full knowledge. Some call it ‘leadership skills’.
Stepping back and simply observing, however, one begins to see the constant barrage of negativity coming from mouths. Good intentions, mixed with lack of empathy, really do no one any good. The ‘I know better than you’ mentality, I believe, is partially responsible for the state we now find ourselves in.
It takes a lot of courage, back bone, and a strong will to step away from this, and firmly plant the feet in our own awareness, moving forward as we know is best for us in any given moment, in a wide set of circumstances.
You know best … you know whether it is beneficial to your present ‘beingness’ and those who your life is touching. You know. You are much wiser than, perhaps, you have let yourself believe. Deep within you is an abundant flow of advice. No words are spoken there, yet the information comes through just the same.
Allow yourself the freedom to be YOU. In kindness love grows. In pain compassion is multiplied. An understanding is gained through your experiences which will benefit others.
Be gentle. The world needs gentleness. A healing must take place and it begins in your own mind. Nurture yourself with positive thought and affirmation. When you understand how wonderful you are, you will begin to see this sameness in those you see around you. Even when they are cruel … for truly, they do not know what they do.
I wake from dreaming, as I have done many times before. As I come into consciousness I think, “It’s time, here I am awake again.” I stop for a minute and I wonder, “Is this too, a dream?”
For a brief moment I glimpse a possibility. The conscious and aware me is actually experience dual realities, all the while being fully awake. Moving forward into petty, insignificant thought, I wonder if my husband can relocate the modem back to the middle of the house so I can use my lap top in the rear instead of coming to the kitchen. Wireless is finicky and does not travel through furnaces it seems.
It’s another beautiful early morning.The skies are clear, and I am grateful. My hope is that we will not be sprayed today with unknown chemicals.
I dream of calculations, and every single step that must be performed in order to complete task. I determine time and cost for it all in my mind, and then I remind myself of all the other components and vendors who will need to be utilized in conjunction with efforts made by the base to have a successful outcome. I make a list of questions and requests which will be asked as soon as I arrive.
Dreaming and waking, immediate projects vs calculations made to determine how much of what will be needed in the world to replenish and be plenty for all.
It is a busy life, walking between worlds.
I absorb all possible knowledge and use it to benefit not only this immediate reality ~ it includes the immediate future outcomes as well. I imagine I am not the only one.
Om, Let me meditate on the great Lord,
Oh, greatest God, give me higher intellect,
And let God Shiva illuminate my mind.
She was told the world of men did not deserve her, she was told the world should be destroyed, for indeed, it did not deserve saving. Her response? “It isn’t about being deserving, it is about what you believe in, and I believe in love.”
I love this statement, for it is exactly how I feel and think ~ I am certain many of you do as well. It was stated in the movie that the choice between positive and negative (in different words) is the choice every man and woman must make. No one can make this choice for them, no one can determine how they will live, in their hearts and minds and in the world. This responsibility is absolutely our own.
I watched the film with a friend, who although he enjoyed it, he was also against it not being historically correct. I was baffled, as this is not about history as far as our many wars go.
Seeing the negatives has been a habit ingrained into the minds of humanity for centuries. Retraining our self to see things in a different manner can be quite difficult … it requires much effort, continuously.
Some call it “rewiring the brain”.
Many of us have experience hiding our true nature from the outside world. We do and say things we think will make us more likely be accepted into a group, or provide us with the advancement we seek.
The danger though, is that in doing this we find that eventually we are actually hiding from our self as well. Becoming lost to our core senses and truths, we may become angry, feeling as though the ‘freedom to be me‘ has been stripped, and we feel the invisible shackles society likes us to wear.
Embrace who you are, let your love light shine. You are the best version of you there will ever be. Seek wisdom from others, choose what works for you, leave that which does not resonate behind.
Everyone is on their own journey, travelling a path no one else has traveled in exactly the same way. What is learned can help others who may be experiencing something similar. If they ask, a sharing becomes possible, perhaps making the road smoother.
Imagine if we all tried, when asked, to make the road a bit smoother for each other ~ you for me, me for you, us for others, and others for us … on and on. We would all be better for it, and our bond would become so strong, no amount of darkness could penetrate it.
This is my hope for the world, my hope for all of us.
Life, depending on the way it began, and then continued, can hold pain. Over time this pain becomes somewhat of a comfort, for it is often the only consistent thing in our life.
I have been comfortable in pain in years gone by, yes, I lived pain very well. Then I got tired of living pain very well.
Over the last 15 years I have focused on another way, a way of living joyfully. I have decided that I had enough of the pain, so I looked long and hard at it, going very deep into my mind about it, and I began to heal.
Healing from past traumas can take a very long time, however with diligence and determination it IS possible to change the mindset around it all. It IS possible to alter the life journey.
Eliminating toxins is essential for clarity of mind.
A fogged and polluted body and mind aren’t fully equipped.
Have you, too, decided enough is enough? Have you mastered living in pain yet? Do you think it is time to be a master of a different way of life?
The choice is yours.
The only one holding you back is you.
The only opinion that you must live with for your entire life, is yours.
How will you choose to think of yourself and your life?
What will you do about it?
Peace is a real possibility, yet it takes courage and a lot of work.
You are capable … within you is a warrior who can surmount any problem!
Problems only have power when we allow them to have it.
You see, this power is YOURS.
Claim it, steer it in the direction which brings you peace.
Awake and lying in bed at 2am I considered how it is that the value of each human being is determined. Perhaps we are indeed watched as we move through life, our actions and their affects on the world monitored and recorded. Is what we do having a positive impact on life, or negative?
If positive, perhaps we will have another opportunity to come to the planet and continue the cycle of change that benefits the earth and life as a whole ~ If not, then the contrary.
As I thought this, I wondered why there are so many on the planet that hurt each other and all other life forms, why there are so many who damage the forests, waters, and skies, the very air needed for the life cycle to continue.
There are many theories.
Perhaps the worst of humanity was saved for last incarnation … given a chance to see the affect of these accumulative actions and an opportunity to change their minds about their own behaviors, (of course, there are those who love as well. Not for a moment do I believe all lack empathy and care).
Perhaps the time is very near where the decision will be made who lives here, and who does not. Perhaps the planet will indeed be rid of the scourge of the earth, and who remains will promote …
… Peace, Harmony, Joy, and Love, among all the other many attributes of compassionate living.
We will see, won’t we?
