We Fall Down

We fall down and down, until we touch the ground, until we relate with the basic sanity of the earth.

We become the lowest of the low, the smallest of the small, a grain of sand, perfectly simple, no exceptions….

If you are a grain of sand, the rest of the universe, all the space. all the room is yours, because you obstruct nothing, overcrowd nothing, possess nothing.

There is tremendous openness.

You are the emperor of the universe because you are a grain of sand.

Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche

Yoga Means

Yoga means that now there is no hope, now there is no future, now there is are no desires. One is ready to know what is. One is not interested in what can be, what should be, what ought to be. One is not interested! One is interested only in that which is because only the real can free you, only the reality can become liberation.

Total despair is needed. That despair is called dukkha by Buddha. And if you are really in misery, don’t hope, because your hope will only prolong the misery. Your hope is a drug. It can help you to reach death only nowhere else. All your hopes can lead you only to death.

Become totally hopeless, no future, no hope. Difficult. Needs courage to face the real. But such a moment comes to everyone some time or another. A moment comes to every human being when he feels total hopelessness. Absolute meaninglessness happens to him. When he becomes aware that whatsoever he is doing is useless, wheresoever he is going, he is going nowhere, all his life is meaningless, suddenly hopes drop, future drops, and for the time you are face to face with the reality… When you are not moving into the future, not moving toward the past then you start moving within yourself, because your being is is here and now. You are present here and now. You can enter this reality.

Bhagwan S. Rajneesh his comments on the Yogasutras

In Addition To…

End Suffering

In addition to the mind, body, and personality, yoga teaches that the true home of the soul is also beyond time and space, in the external now of consciousness. When we live disconnected from the vast roots of the Self, We suffer. Self is capitalized here because it refers to the divine, awake, free self. Giving the yogic view of our predicament, it’s not surprising that we are often so estranged, that we feel unreal, that we feel disconnected from our center. That is precisely our condition.

The classical “scriptures” identify five “afflictions” or kleshas, five conditioned beliefs and behaviors that keep us bound to ” gross apparent reality.” They are:

Ignorance, I-ness, Attraction, Aversion, Clinging to life, and fear of death.

Ignorance is the ground from which all other afflictions spring. Out of Ignorance arises I-ness the belief in and clinging to a separate, solid, “small s” self. Out of the I-ness arise attraction and aversion, our complete identification with our likes and dislikes. And out of this inevitably arises clinging to life and fear of death, a deluded and desperate desire for life to be small, neat, permanent, and solid rather than vast, incomprehensible, impermanent, and discontinuous as it really is.

In addition to the five afflictions, the scriptures also identify four erroneous beliefs that sustain the delusion of the kleshas. These are:

The belief in the permanence of objects, The belief in the ultimate reality of the body, The belief that our state of suffering IS REALLY HAPPINESS, and The belief that our bodies, minds, and feelings are our true selves.

 

 

On His Final Night of Enlighten’ment

On the night of his final enlightenment, even the Buddha had to call on the power of the Earth goddess, the divine Shakti, for help with the forces of Mara/s, the dark powers of delusion. Buddha touched the ground where he sat. “This Earth,” he said, “is my witness.” This statement could be taken further: this Earth is my family member, my sister, myself. 

Demonic Forces: The Four Maras

  • To make one ecstatic (dga’-byed)
  • To make one crave (sred-byed)
  • To make one stupefied (rmongs-byed), which perhaps suggests making one spaced out or senile
  • To make one thin, emaciated and dried out (skem-byed), which, in this context, could mean worn out, hungry, and thirsty, so that one gives up meditation. In other contexts, perhaps it is the work of Mara that we become dried out and have no moisture of compassion.
  • To make one dead (‘chi-byed), which, in this context, could perhaps make Shiva worry that he will die while meditating, so being afraid of that, he would get up.

IF you have to make up Rules..

Royalty-free chain link fence photos free download | Pxfuel

If you have to make up rules, boundaries, guidelines for another person to engage with you or others, best not to engage with them. The reason is that you would set up verbal barricades is to protect yourself.

Sometimes we are not meant to all get along.

Sometimes it is too dangerous to engage mentally, emotionally, physically, energetically for yourself, others, and for the person in which verbal barriers are being made.

And because we have made these rules of engagement, human tendencies are to tear down, break down and go against rules so what could possibly go wrong when “the engage” starts with you protecting yourself and setting up “the rules of engagement.

We spend to much time in failure energy which we are constantly using to engage.

Me, personally, in the past spent most of my waking life trying to get along with everyone. Everything outside of me was much more important than what was inside me. I spent far to much time getting along than following my inside, my dreams!

Sometimes it is better to walk away, change directions, let go, refocus, restore, regenerate then to use energy and time in ways that produce failure.

Always be kind.

Talk to yourself more.

Set the rules and boundaries for yourself, that way you will know when to disengage because YOUR matters most!

Knowledge your Suffering

End Suffering
We have tried everything to get rid of suffering.
We have gone everywhere to get rid of suffering.
We have bought everything to get rid of it.
We have ingested everything to get rid of it.
Finally, when one has tried enough, there arises the possibility of spiritual maturity with the willingness to stop the futile attempt to get rid of it and, instead, to actually experience suffering. In that momentous instant, there is the realization of that which is beyond suffering, of that which is untouched by suffering.
“There is a realization of who one truly is.”
Gangaji

Blue Heron gave me a drive by today…

Great Blue Heron on a "low pass fly-by! " | This is "FULL FR… | Flickr

Today I finally got out and down to the river, a quiet section, slow-moving part of the river with my dog GIN. The fires have been keeping us in. This section of the river is out of the main area of town. It was so soothing to step into the river and wade around in the sun, looking at all the gorgeous grasses, trees, and plants on the banks. Was exactly what I and my girl needed.

We pressed down and an overgrown path to one of our favorite spots, when we got to the bank we stepped into the river and gently moved to the center. Gin swims behind me as I wade around the river, crossing from bank to bank as I look at medicinal plants, trees, and nature. It is usually a magical day when we get to go.

Today we stepped into the river, we started wading almost to the middle of the river on our way across and from upstream this huge blue heron was flying towards us, downstream and about 3 feet above the water.  Gin and I just stopped, out mouths hanging open at how huge this bird come towards us is. The bird flew so close to us and a bit further downstream from us and it landed on rock piling in the middle of the river. I kept hearing myself say WOW, WOW, It was definitely a spirit bird. It stood and watched us. We continued our way across the river, meanwhile, I was connecting internally to the bird and the good spirits I wanted to speak with the bird to know what the message it was bringing me was.

I was told that the delivery is coming, when I asked for me details I was told to just be patient, live fully, relax, take care of myself and to get out more and more in nature until the delivery comes. They are also wanted to know that they are watching over me, looking out for me, and not to worry. It is on its way. Whatever it is I suspect that it might finally be the life I have been building since 2003 might be on route. Whatever it is I will be in deep gratefulness to all loving beings for their brilliant work behind the scenes for me and others.

Continuity of Consciousness

 

The condition experienced by the pupils (of occult development) is called “continuity of consciousness”. When an ordinary person is completely withdrawn from the sense-world in sleep, he is unconscious. This is no longer so with a pupil who has reached the stage just mentioned. By day and by night, with no interruption, he lives in a state of fully clear consciousness, even when his physical body is at rest. ~ Rudolph Steiner

https://rudolfsteinerquotes.wordpress.com/2020/07/11/continuity-of-consciousness-3/

I love reading the work of Steiner in his 4000 lectures, 300 books, I love being Biodynamic I love learning that from Steiner. I love who he relates us to individuality that creates thinking, that will eventually create the freedom in and for the human being.

I have been looking for the right word for years now to explain what is a shamanic perspective on knowledge, to be in consciousness that I have learned. The way I learned it was that the daydream and the night dream become the same, seamlessly interwoven.

In my experience and with the training and practices that I have spent a life knowing, learning, being, and doing, you first gain control over your night dream world this is the toughest place to get continuity over. you take the technical abilities of the left hemisphere and practice while you are dreaming to “wake up” in the night dream till you reach a place where you are fully conscious in your night dream and can control the pace, remember the occurrences and at will fly, travel, heal something or someone.

Once you have gotten a handle on that you can start adding the magic of the right hemisphere and the night dream into the daydream. Letting go fo the hardening of this world on the mind, body, emotions, and energy field, letting go in the belief it was real or is real and that you are but a vessel being tossed around by the sea of consciousness without avail. Being in the flow is a watery term, and if you will, a mirror/reflective consciousness, it is a night dream experience what I would call the second attention. In order to reach those states made by sounds and words, we have to bring that experience from the night dream of magic into this daydreaming world to make it so.

Rigidity, tension, anger, panic, fear are just symptoms of inconsistent practice and being in one place and not the other equally. Sleep and night dreaming are totally different things, however, we do night dream when we go to sleep unless we lose that ability. As the stress and tension in our minds and bodies grow we disconnect from the night dream and you might find ourselves drugging our bodies to go into a state that is sort of like sleep but more just shut down and checked out.

Maybe you need a good spiritual teacher, maybe you need to play more, maybe you need a dream, maybe you need space and freedom to connect your two parts, maybe you just need to decide how important is consciousness is to you? For me, in my life, it is the where I spend much of my time and energy, I have had teachers that could do feats that defy solid matter once they could command their day and night dream in a seamless way, full conscious all the time and that the same time more rested than they ever have been.

Do you need a miracle of some sort? You are the miracle, you have the ability to cure or create anything the key is your consciousness and like Steiner says: “By day and by night, with no interruption, he lives in a state of fully clear consciousness, even when his physical body is at rest”, the most important word here is: continuity between both worlds, between both consciousnesses, between both hemispheres, the two becomes one and we have continuity.

You need nothing that is not within you, seek and ye shall find the “one” which is you when you are clear consciousness day and night with no interruption.

In nature, we find these two paths of consciousness summer which is the daydream and winter the night dream when things go to sleep and the inner worlds take over that we cannot see.

In the fall I have been graced by my Native teachers to attend such ceremonies as what is called putting the bear to sleep. It is a time when we come together and give offerings of fine fattening foods to the bear, we help the bear to remember to physically rest and travel the spirit world in the winter, we know that the bear will go on a long journey into the unseen, during this time out personal medicine of the bear is called into rest so that we can disconnect more from the daydream world more and into the night dream world. If we do not do this work our personal bear medicine will not rest and we will go through a tough winter of aimlessly wandering in spirit, mind, and body. Equally, in the spring we do ceremony to remind the bear to wake up, we offer fattening wonderful foods and connect with the bear that we may know the paces and things the bear has been. The medicine of bear is sacred it is the bridge to both worlds, both consciousness, both ways of being.

Even the bear in his way has continuity of consciousness.

Nature has continuity of consciousness in its seasons.

We should strive for the same.
