How to join the spokes together in a wheel…

We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole tthat makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but not being is what we use.

Namaste πŸ™πŸ»

β€œIn the darkness you are light.”

I offer you peace.” I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the highest source. I salute that source in you let us work together for unity and love. – Gandhi

Inhale God approaches you. Hold the inhalation and God remains with you. Exhale and you approach God. Hold the exhalation and surrender to God.

The best thing you can do when you wake up in the morning is to focus on gratitude. That breath you are taking could be the last of someone in any part of the world.

Ask yourself;

Who am I?

What do I want during this life?

What is my life purpose?

Who am I grateful to?

I assure you that will have your attention concerned, because as simple as those questions sounds; our attention is mainly focused on what the world is doing right or wrong.

If we spend time knowing ourselves more, and what can we do to make this world better, we would not have enough energy and time to focus on those who are missing the mark.

Last but not least;

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the insight right, the outside will fall into place.

-Eckhart Tolle

The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the projection of our shadow onto others. As such if the shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

For example, if there is anything that we wish to change in a child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.

Because the ideas of the moral order and of God belong to the ineradicable substrate of the human soul.

What easy comes, easy goes, for instance man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.

Dr. Carl G. Jung ( a renowned Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist) quoted ” The kernel of all jealousy is lack of love.”

The truth is where love rules there is no will to power and where power predominates, love is lacking. By synthesis based on this, love is the holy grail medicine during shadow work to the human’s heart and soul.

It might sound like climbing a mountain barefooted, but let’s also remember that when there is a will, there is a way. Moreover when in order for this to happen forgiveness plays an integrative essential role.

In order to deal with other people’s darkness is required to know and control our own.

Dr. Jung also meant that your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

That’s why is so important mindfulness ( present connection) and reality grounding ( boots on the ground, like we say within the military community).

And yes there is no coming to consciousness without pain, because the most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.

Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. That is why mental receptivity and flexibility play an important part along this journey.

Just remember that deep down below the surface of the average conscience if a still, small voice says to us, “Something is out of tune” then is clear that there is something to fix, before pointing at others (out of the comfort zone) for missing the mark.

Last but not least;

“It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves. The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.”

― C.G. Jung

With love and always from the light.

The Chamber of Your Heart.

β€œOur days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart rater than a piece of our mind.”

“It is impossible,”

said pride.

“It is risky, “

said experience.

“It is pointless,”

said reason.

“Give it a try,”

whispered the heart.

Always remember that your heart knows things that your mind can’t explain.

“When you hold grudges your hands are not free to catch blessings.”

Sometimes you need to look at life, from a different perspective.

The mind is like water…

For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.

What happens to the water when is turbulent?

It is difficult to see.

What happens to the water when is calmed?

Everything becomes clear.

You can’t start the next chapter of your life, if you keep re-reading the last one. Hence lessons in life will be repeated until they are learned.

It is important to remember that the tongue could be a sharp knife or a healing crystal.

It could kill without drawing blood or resurrect a dead spirit.

Emotional baggage is part of everyone’s contract in life. As hard as it sounds, let us face that there is not a single human being, without emotional baggage that might be rooted from childhood, teenage or even adulthood.

It is an individual responsibility to give us the opportunity to connect with a higher self, to embrace conscious awareness in order to make necessary adjustments towards the development of effective courses of action through this journey.

Denial or projection (our shadowy ego) might trick us along the way with the hidden agenda of judgement cloudiness in order to boicot such an important process of self enlightenment.

Reception towards mental flexibility will facilitate such an empowering self process.

Allow yourself awareness that some people might arrive into your life as blessings and some will arrive as lessons.

Training yourself to let go, everything you are afraid to lose; will also facilitate the effective tool of mindful detachment and hence powerful resilience.

When holding on to places, material possessions or even people with conscious or unconscious self oriented expectations, we do not allow ourselves to enjoy the gift of forgiveness, letting go, healing and ultimately to move on, having as final reward our inner divine light shining brighter.

However, when there is resistance we deny ourselves to connect and enjoy the Holy Grail benefits that our Lord Jesus left to humanity.

Which is the limitless power of unconditional love.

Two ways directed:

β€’ To ourselves in humble ways.

β€’ To humanity in gratefulness for granting us a diploma after the graduation ceremony from the university of life.

I do not like politics but I cannot leave from sharing, that will be mindful to allow acceptance regards the following quote from Luis FerrΓ© (a former governor of Puerto Rico),

The voice of reason speaks softly.”

Our selected way towards this important graduation will determine the amount of obstacles through this journey.

Also that while you breathe right now, another person might be taking the last breath. Allow yourself the gift of transferring complaints into gratitude, as such learn to live your life with what you have, indeed what a person taking the last breath will no longer have the privilege to have.

Namaste

With love and always on the light πŸ’–

Prayer of Letting Go πŸ•Š

To Forgive is not as smooth as it sounds, I know…

Is not the most lovable inner process, moreover when doing it for ourselves. Sometimes it’s better and smarter to do so, whether there has been an apology or not.

Now, did anyone apologize to Jesus at the cross? Moreover, before he asked our Father:

“Forgive them, for they not know what their doing.”

Returning to our contemporary time, when feeling ready to embrace forgiveness, there is a beautiful outcome as reward:

Letting go and moving on.

When letting go, (sounds like a surrender or defeat), however there is actually the opposite happening.

There is surrender of attachment and attachment is the favorite food of the EGO (Edging God Outside),

AKA The Shadow based on Dr. Carl G. Jung’s legacy to understand the human mind, and as such to the mental health field.

When there is forgiveness it brings self healing by activating our inner skill of resilience.

Resilience allows the moving on process which will take you to a higher self version by accepting the past experience as one of your best lifetime lessons.

During my physical recovery, I meditated with a prayer I will share.

And when I get the release from the Physiatrist (to get back into my advanced yoga practice, as a lifetime student, in the event that soon I will start facilitating without performing postures).

I will certainly write an “IT IS FINISHED”

Here is the Prayer…

If I have harmed anyone in anyway either consciously or unconsciously through my own confusion.

I ask their forgiveness.

If anyone has harmed me in anyway consciously or unconsciously through their own confusion.

I forgive them.

And if there is a situation, I am not yet ready to forgive.

I forgive myself for that.

For all the ways that I harmed myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusion.

I forgive myself.

Last but not least;

“Allow yourself to rest. Your Soul speaks to you in the quiet moments in between your thoughts.”

with light and love πŸ’—
