Some Daily Wisdom:

Self-Determination

“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.

restoration 2015

Life is precious,

Do not squander possibility.

Do.
Be.

Be ready for the world,
as it does not stand still.

The coming of peace,
and the restoration of order,
the natural order-
is coming.

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-

such clarity,
beauty,
and lifeblood-vigor,

that it all the impending toil and strife,
shall be worth it-
in the end.

Restoration 2015.

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 !

Adyashanti – On The Development of Consciousness:

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.

::][the state of democracy][::

Do you hear it?

The sounds of a restless society.

A society consumed by its own cognative dissonance,

yet without clear directives.  

 

The chatter of a nation,

that has realized –

they’ve been stripped of a true democracy.

 

Where do we go, next?

As a people?

As a nation?

 

The truth is – I do not know.

 

But what I do know,

is this country,

no longer functions —

 

by the values,

on which it was founded.

 

That much, is clear.

 

I enjoy the concept of a democratic America as much as you do,

so I simply want you to stop and ask yourself, what can I do,

to improve the quality of life for those around me, and myself?

 

Where can I be a little more tolerant, understanding, and accepting in my life?

and finally – Where can I find those parts of myself that I don’t like,

and fix them, rather than taking ones own feelings of shortcoming – out on others?  

 

Just some food for thought…
