How Unity Increases Strength.

“The buddy system is elemental for survival, because it will give the dark forces a different target to aim at.”

I heard the following story during the Integration of a Kundalini Yoga sequence and suddenly, I found myself playing a movie at my mind’s eye of an 18 years military career.

Moreover all the good things I have learned from it. Starting with structure. Not to mention the financial support provided during my college education completion and currently my son’s.

Besides gratitude, there is certainly other important good thing learned across my path: Teamwork and to feel honored by becoming part of both families.

Which are values encouraged within the yoga’s community.

As such is the reason for sharing this story.

When you see geese flying along in “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way.

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following.

By flying in “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. (Someone must have made a PHD) πŸ€”

People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the trust of one another.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are headed the same way we are.

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point. (Everyone should develop leadership skills)

It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or with geese flying south.

Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

What messages do we give when we honk from behind?

Finally (and this is important)

When a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. (Never leave a fallen comrade behind).

They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their group.

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.

Last but not least;

Always, always remember that it is a privilege to be part of a community or family…

Ships don’t sink because of the water around them πŸ€”

Today is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use it as you will. It is your choice to use it or waste it for good.

Always remember that ships don’t sink because of the water around them, ships sink because of the water that people allow to get inside in them.

As such don’t let what is happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.

Start with an important affirmation:

“What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.”

When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that you have left behind.

Allow it be something that got you closer to your highest good.

Namaste

Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead…

And Christ will shine on you.

Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Hey there,

Please review these beautiful words from, Ephesians 5:7.

Part of walking in the light is coming out from the darkness. In other words is the awakening of self-resilience.

God does not love that which is already in itself worthy of love, but on the contrary, that which in itself has no worth acquires worth just by becoming the object of God’s love.

Now, was not this the message that Jesus sent to our Father when saying;

“Forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”, (seconds before his spirit left the physical body)?

Just, before his final, final…

It is finished!

Ofcourse it is because, the sunsets resurrect into sunrises.

Moreover, resilience and not fear to dead or sunsets, because the darker it might be the brighter you will see your sunrise.

That is how resilience manifests within us. Bouncing through adversity, but not breaking.

You are resilient.

Make it your daily Mantra.

The Quieter You Become, The More You Can Hear…

Once the storm is over you will not remember, how you made it through. Managing to survive became an art. You could find yourself wondering if the storm is even over. But one thing is certain…

When you come out the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in.

Last but not least:

Be patient in the storm and focus on the sunshine after.

Do what you love to do…

No matter how many obligations or self acquired responsibilities you have, find space to what drives you and ignites the fire within your Soul. Do not negotiate for anything or anyone what activates the light within the chamber of your heart towards self love or love to others, because at the end who pushes you away consciously or unconsciously is being guided by an ego who will always work on embracing self oriented unilateral satisfactions.
