C. CAPABLANCA: “Kindness: Strengths of Kind People”

Let’s break these misconceptions lurking around in the shadows of darkness, that kind people are weak, polluting the minds of innocent people. Even Lao Tzu said, “what is soft is strong”, and Mohandas Gandhi said, “forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Kind people are confident people with gentle souls and brave hearts. There is a massive difference between confidence and arrogance. Confident people are humble people. I have written about this on my previous post, humility is part of being truly confident. This is another misconception actually. It is saddening to think that the darkness is trying to conquer us, without many of us noticing.

Here are the strengths of the kind people:

  • Empathy

We all need to learn how to love ourselves. Maintaining a healthy dose of self-care. Taking good care of ourselves is hard enough. Kind people are compassionate. They have the ability to put themselves out there and understand other people’s pain. It is not always about what we can do to ourselves, but what we can do to others. That is pure strength!

  • Love ardently and deeply

Kind people love truly to the core of their hearts and to the depths of their souls. Kind people love wholeheartedly. Being completely open with your emotions means there is a higher probability that you will get hurt in return. Kind people have brave hearts!

Self-discipline, patience and forgiveness
Kind people have the ability to control their emotions. It does not take much effort to fight back and show hostility. It is more challenging to remain calm and collected when someone have wronged you. It is not easy to forgive and move on when someone have hurt you, but kind people will remain sweet. Kind people will always choose love over hate. Love is a strength, hate is a sign of weakness!

  • Authentic and genuine intentions

In this life, not everyone will agree with you, even if you know in your heart that your intentions are genuine. Kind people are completely honest no matter what, careless of the opinion of others. Genuine kindness, it can’t be faked!

  • Resilience

Every time I meet a kind person, I see a light of resilience. We all know that on the journey of our lives, everyone must go through hardships and failures. Nobody is perfect in this world, everyone make mistakes. Instead of blaming everything and everyone around them, kind people will take responsibility for their actions. Kind people see hardships as a lesson and failures as an opportunity to grow. They can stand back up again without any bitterness in their hearts. Bounce back from failure to failure without losing their strong foundation of kindness. No matter what happens in life, their softie hearts, will remain softie hearts!

Kind people are the true fighters! The warriors! The legion of light in this world!

C. CAPABLANCA: “Heart and Soul”

Be kind, even when they are unkind to you

Be polite, even when they are rude to you

Be fair, even when they treat you unfairly

Be forgiving, even when they keep on hurting you

Be helpful, even if there is no one to help you

Be genuine, even if they do not appreciate your sincerity

Keep on spreading love, even if you do not get it back

Smile, to all those people who make fun of you, spread rumours about you, and being judgemental, do not worry about them. Even if you try to explain yourself, they will never understand

Do not change according to the behaviour of others. Be as sweetest as you can be! Always remember; it is not between you and others, it is between you and God. No matter how people mistreat you, everywhere you go, God can see the goodness in your heart and soul.

ANA DAKSINA: “Writing In the Light” (Dedicated to the WordPress Ascension Writers)

This one’s for the Lightwriters
Constantly reaching out
Teaching us all over again
What life is really all about

Some only touching one or two
Some helping many more
But all persist, for in this game
Numbers don’t correspond with score

It’s been long years — decades for some
They have been coaching patiently
Forefront of us to grow within
So all ascend will outwardly

How many times, how many ways
Can they find freshly to repeat
The basic tenets? Here’s one more!
An awesome and ongoing feat

Of selflessness and service
Of genuine pure love
Such as the future that they build
May be composed entirely of

INSPIRATION FOR THE DAY ~ Moments with Millie: “Never Too Late”

I visited my elderly client who is under hospice care this morning.  She was asleep in a wheelchair in the hall of the facility.  I grabbed another wheelchair and sat in front of her.

She woke to my touch.  “Hello, darling! How are you?”

Disoriented she looked at me and said that she was okay but didn’t like where she was at.  She went on to complain until I smiled and asked her a few questions.  She nodded then and agreed it wasn’t so bad.  Her dementia has progressed significantly the last month as she is transitioning.  She even said she was waiting for me but she has no clue who I am.

“Tell me something new, my love?”  I asked.

“I was at a concert yesterday.  The entire day. They played black people music.”  Her blue eyes opened widely.

“What’s black people music?”  I asked waiting for some logical answer.  She has been a racist all of her life and extremely feisty.  She’s been verbal about it.  But today I saw change.

“You know… black music!”

“You mean, like soul music…. Music that gets into your soul and makes you move with the best beat?”

“I guess.  They asked me if I wanted to stay and I told them I was happy to.  I needed that music.”  In the midst of her delusion “they” are people of authority.  She continued explaining how the music made her feel.  She kept sighing and sharing the lightness in her body.

It was absolutely delightful to witness this.  Her story was fascinating.

I got off the wheelchair and dropped to my knees in front of her.  She touched my cheek.  I rubbed her hands.  I kissed her soft skin.

“Oh sweetheart, I feel that’s heaven.  Don’t you?  There must be soul music up there.  I like to believe that there is the sound of black people jazzy music in the afterlife.  I want to believe there is some Louisiana symphony that makes you come alive….”

She interrupted me,  “Yessss!  I want that.  I want to dance to black people music in heaven.  Oh yesss!”  Her eyes tearing with such loving awareness.  It was pure yumminess.  And a gift of awareness for me.

Folks, it’s never too late to have a change of heart.  It’s never too late to change your ways.  It’s never too late to accept the world and rejoice in diversity.  Ohmygosh…. to witness this woman transform before her death and allow herself the acknowledgment of equality is huge.  She’s 85.  It’s never ever too late.

I walked out listening to the sounds of soul music from heaven.  She’s ready to go home.  I hear the trumpets playing….

~m.a.p.

SADHGURU: “How Your Energy System And Imagination Are Connected”

“If you have conclusions about everything, there is no possibility, no receptivity. If you have conclusions, you do not have to be attentive — you can go through life like you are dead. The more conclusions you have, the more rigor mortis there is in your mind and in your body as well.”

~Sadhguru

 

There is a certain geometry to the physical existence and to the energy existence. Everything in the universe, from the atomic to the cosmic, works the way it does because of geometric perfection. One of the most fundamental and the most stable forms in geometry is a triangle. In the human energy system, there are two equilateral triangles — an upward-pointing one below, and a downward-pointing one above. Normally, these two triangles meet just above the anahata. To work with your mind and imagination, it is important to adjust the alignment of the two triangles at least to some extent. The ideal alignment would be that the upward-pointing and the downward-pointing triangles intersect to such an extent that they form a perfect six-pointed star with six equilateral triangles on the outside.

With the necessary alignment, you will be able to exercise your imagination in such a way that you can manifest what you want outside of you. To enhance the power of your imagination, you need to lift the upward-pointing triangle, which in terms of the geometry of the body is the foundation, to such an extent that it includes the vishuddhi, which is the basis of your imagination. There is sadhana to move it up and hold it there, all the time. If you do not have such sadhana, a simple way to achieve this is not to eat for a period of time. Generally, when the stomach is empty, the upward-pointing triangle tends to rise by itself. Once you eat, it descends again.

The Importance of Keeping the Chakras Mobile

There are one hundred and fourteen chakras in the body. The seventy-two thousand nadis, or energy pathways in the system, have one hundred and fourteen significant junction points, where the nadis meet in substantial numbers and redistribute themselves. These points are generally known as chakras, which literally means “wheel” or “circle,” though they are actually triangles. We call them “chakras” because that suggests movement — moving forward. Out of these hundred and fourteen, two are outside of the physical realm. For most human beings, these two are very feeble, unless they put in the necessary sadhana. Out of the remaining one hundred and twelve chakras, a few are generally located in certain parts of the body, on a physiological level. The rest of the chakras could be moving to some extent.

The way the chakras move depends on what you do with yourself. If you want to empower yourself to do different types of activities and to adjust to different type of situations, the pranic physiology or the chakra physiology of the body needs to be able to adjust accordingly. Doing the necessary work to keep the chakras mobile is important because the mobility of the chakras determines how flexible and effective you are in different types of situations, in order to meet different types of requirements. The problem with most human beings is in one situation, they function well. In another situation, they are a total mess. This is because they can only think, feel and act in a particular way.

You should be able to do everything well, with a little practice. But this will not work if your energy system is rigid. So, keeping your system mobile is important, not just because we want to do different kinds of activities in the world. It also gives you a certain flexibility of experience, that you are comfortable in any kind of situation. To be at ease, your energies must be flexible. These hundred and twelve chakras can be used as hundred and twelve doorways to your ultimate nature. That is why Adiyogi gave one hundred and twelve ways to attain to the ultimate.

To be able to move this complex triangular structure of your physiology the way you want it requires a different level of sadhana. But the most fundamental thing is that these two triangles should intersect. Normally, the upward-pointing triangle is below and the downward-pointing triangle is above. If you bring the two equilateral triangles to a point where they intersect in such a way that they form a star with six equilateral triangles, the system is in balance and becomes very receptive. My work is about presence and transmitting something, for which you need receptivity. My words are not going to enlighten you. I only say things to confuse you, because you cannot enlighten anyone by talking. It is the presence that has the power to transform.

From Conclusions to Confusion to Consciousness

Talking is a good tool only to destroy the idiotic conclusions that people have made. When conclusions are destroyed, confusion happens. Being joyfully confused about everything in the universe is a good state to be in. This means you are constantly paying attention to everything. Once you realize that you do not know a thing, you become receptive. If you have conclusions about everything, there is no possibility, no receptivity. If you have conclusions, you do not have to be attentive — you can go through life like you are dead. The more conclusions you have, the more rigor mortis there is in your mind and in your body as well.

 “Being joyfully confused about everything in the universe is a good state to be in. This means you are constantly paying attention to everything. Once you realize that you do not know a thing, you become receptive.”

 

If you are doing hatha yoga every day, you will notice that on a day when your attitude is kind of rigid, your body will not bend. On another day, when you are happy and mentally flexible, your body will bend much better. The nature of your consciousness is manifesting in every cell of your body, every moment of your life. That is why there are many kinds of self-inflicted diseases in the world today. Never before, human beings had as many food choices as we have today. In earlier times, people ate what was locally available. Today, in spite of so much variety, there is so much illness. In fact, the more choices people have, the sicker they get.

The United States is probably one of the countries with the greatest variety of food choices, but they also spend a huge amount of money on healthcare — three trillion dollars per year. That is a crime against humanity. If those who do not get sufficient nourishment are ill, it is understandable. But if those who are eating well are sick, it means something fundamental is going wrong. We have not understood that every cell in your body was created by the nature of your consciousness. If you do not know how to keep the nature of your consciousness well, you will not know how to keep your system well. Then you will function by accident, which need not be so.

We as human beings do everything that other creatures do too — we eat, sleep, reproduce, and die. One thing that distinguishes us is we are making a lot of fuss about all that, just as an aside. The most important difference about human beings is we can do all these things fully consciously. For example, you can eat fully consciously. Let us say you are hungry. If you were some other creature, you would just pick up whatever suits you and devour it. But as a human being, you are able to wait until mealtime, sit at the table, chant the invocation, and rather than stuffing your face with both hands, eat with your right hand. This is being conscious. If you go by the body alone, you will want to eat immediately. But since you have the necessary intelligence and awareness to hold back the compulsions of the body, you can respond to the situation in a conscious manner. If someone behaves very compulsively, they say he is like an animal. So, this is a journey from compulsiveness to consciousness.

Consciousness gives you the possibility to become free from your tendencies. Even if you have been ruled by all kinds of tendencies until this moment, if you respond fully consciously now, there will be a distance between you and the accumulated tendencies that you have. If you make every aspect of life conscious — not only in action, but also in thought, emotion, and energy — you will be on top of the world.
