“A watermelon that breaks open by itself tastes better than one cut with a knife.”
-Hualing Nieh, 1981
We can have the best teachers in the world. We can read the most amazing books. We can climb a mountain in Tibet and be blessed by a guru. But when we finally “get it” – it’s because we did it. No one can grow for us, no one can learn for us. Life, and its pace, are self-determined. We will get there of our own accord.

Namaste! And may you climb the highest mountain only if the task has meaning to you.
Be ready for the world,
as it does not stand still.
The coming of peace,
and the restoration of order,
the natural order-
Rejoice in this truth.
From the chaos shall come order,
but without chaos,
change cannot emerge.
However it is important,
to note that when it does-
It will give rise to-
that it all the impending toil and strife,
shall be worth it-
in the end.
authors notes: This poem isn’t one of my creation necessarily… These words “came to me,” as they say. Just sharing – as that’s the intention of what was channeled to bring you this poem. If metaphysics weirds you out, I don’t apologize. Perhaps instead focus on why you’re afraid of what you cannot see and define.
Else, enjoy the channeled message, for what it is. I know I’m not trying to analyze it that much !
Spiritual teacher Adyashanti describes how in the development of human consciousness, there comes a shift from a sense of a separate self toward the experience of unity. He points out that the fear of losing our individual identity keeps us from making this shift, and by confronting our fear we come into love. Adyashanti also suggests that reaching a point of crisis can allow an opportunity for consciousness to shift, individually and collectively.
