Pāli Word a Day for October 7, 2019 — mahāsantuṭṭha— the greatly contented one

Attā hi attano nātho;
ko hi nātho paro siyā?
Attanā hi sudantena,
nāthaṃ labhati dullabhaṃ. 

One truly is the protector of oneself;
who else could the protector be?
With oneself fully controlled,
one gains a mastery that is hard to gain.

The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom, translated from Pāli by Acharya Buddharakkhita

Energy Update | October 7, 2019

It all starts with you. How you feel about yourself. What you silently and boldly affirm. No matter what’s happening, give yourself that extra love and care. You’re transforming, growing, releasing, and becoming more aware. You’re realizing your worth and what you deserve. You’re awakening to your own mental powers that it all starts within you. This realization brings so much potential, hope, and possibilities, but at the same time a rebirth. You’re shedding so much of your past self and coming out on top. Step by step. Moment by moment. It’s all happening in such a divine way. Don’t judge yourself for your current situation, experience, or circumstance. Learn from it. Grow from it. Evolve from it. Decide right now that you are ready to move forward into your blessings. Loving yourself is the highest frequency. Nurture your mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Take some time for yourself to get your inner world in order. Everything external you have already created. Something new must now emerge. It’s time for new thoughts, new visions, and new goals. The old habits or things that haven’t worked aren’t surviving your personal growth. It’s getting easier to let go of what doesn’t work because you love yourself. It’s all good to because you’re making peace with it. You are forgiving yourself. You are forgiving ever situation. You are free and feeling light allowing the excess to go. Your mind and heart is feeling lighter. It’s all okay. You are such a gift for this planet. Your existence makes an impact on everything. Love yourself. Feel good about who you are. This is the start of your magical journey. Everything will begin to seem unreal. You’ll be so glad you decided. There’s a whole world and many possibilities waiting for you to make that choice. It’s time.

Pāli Word a Day for October 06, 2019 — pabhā — light, radiance, shine

Mettañca sabbalokasmi,
mānasaṃ bhāvaye aparimāṇaṃ:
Uddhaṃ adho ca tiriyañca,
asambādhaṃ averamasapattaṃ.

With good will for the entire cosmos,
cultivate a limitless heart:
Above, below, & all around,
unobstructed, without downloadility or hate.

Meditation | The Devi Prayer – HYMN TO THE DIVINE MOTHER (20 mins.)

The Devi Prayer is a Mantra evoking the 108 Names of the Divine Mother.

 

In English:

The Divine Mother is everywhere.

She is in everything.

She is the Divine Essence that lives within all beings.

Her domain is the field of life, for she gives

to all beings the sustenance that is needed for life.

Her beauty lives in the natural world,

and spans the universes in all their splendor.

She has been called by many names,

for all traditions recognize Her.

Into each consciousness the knowledge is given

of the sacredness of life.

This sacredness IS the Mother.

She is the holy generator of the physical world,

joined to the heart and soul of every living thing.

All of the Earth is one with Her.

All beings of the Earth owe their life to Her,

for she is the Mother of all, the One who bestows

all gifts of life.

Her gifts come to the deserving and to the

non-deserving alike, for the sun does not choose

upon whom to shine.

She is the source of Divine blessing, the part

of the Oneness that bestows the graces that fill life.

We have not seen Her because her being is

cloaked in silence.

She emerges now as part of the Oneness where

she has always resided, blessing all, giving to all.

All who bow before Her are sustained by the life

within them.

All who honor Her are sustained by life’s gifts

both within themselves and beyond.

The purpose of existence is to join with Life that lives

in all dimensions and all realms of being.

It is the Mother that creates this evolving,

this unfolding journey,

for she is the fabric of Time itself,

the means by which all things grow.

She is the template for life that exists within Her —

the substance and form of all that shall ever come to be.

May all be blessed by the blessings of the

Divine Oneness.

Health and Wellbeing | A Champion Gymnast With Down Syndrome Becomes A Model And Breaks Stereotypes 

In spite of being raised in the spirit of “everybody is beautiful in their own way”, in reality, we became victims of the modern model of “perfect beauty”. We are bombarded by the photos of ideally-looking models on a daily basis, and it seems that there is no room for any different-looking person. Yet, Chelsea […]

Pāli Word a Day for October 05, 2019 — ajarāmara — not subject to decay & death

Attānaṃ ce tathā kayirā;
yathāññamanusāsati,
sudanto vata dametha.
Attā hi kira duddamo.

One should do what one teaches others to do;
if one would train others,
one should be well controlled oneself.
Difficult, indeed, is self-control.

MERCURY in emotional transformative SCORPIO inconjuncts CHIRON the Wounded Healer in ARIES

Mercury in Scorpio meanings-Sex on the brain, Sex is all in the head and in soul/psyche. Time for deep transformative Tantric soul sex. The real deal. the one whose orgasms creates new worlds. If you’ve never experienced this you’ve never really had sex as it was intended.

You may come to this realization with your partner or within yourself now. 

You may be totally unaware of that “splinter in your mind.” Which will infuriate a Mercury in Scorpio which is intent on getting to the bottom of things, the bottom of the Psyche, the real dirt.

THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE

TAROFLEXIONS

As a teacher of visual
text (both in the academic context of art history and in the context
of divination and fortunetelling), there’s one principle that I
hammer on: The principle of connection.

When we’re presented with an image, it’s often not enough to identify what’s happening. For the experience that makes an impact, what we need is to connect what’s happening to an emotional or a rational response, or both, depending on our immediate context for viewing.

Whenever we connect the image to the emotion that we associate with the image, or the image to the decoding nerve if we’re with a detective kind of an investigation, what we’re doing is create a story behind the image.

It’s for this reason that I always insist on considering the cards on the table as a possibility to connect the visual narrative frames with a story behind the frames.

Herbal Remedies May Inspire Future Treatments for High Blood Pressure

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

People have used herbs as medicine for thousands of years. Today, with medical researchers continually hunting for better alternative treatments, some are revisiting these remedies. A recent study looks at herbs that people believe can treat hypertension.

Currently, hypertension affects an estimated 1 in 3 adults in the United States.

Although dietary and lifestyle changes can sometimes be sufficient, medication is necessary in some cases.

Antihypertensive medications work well for some people but not for others, and the side effects can be unpleasant.

For these reasons, researchers are keen to find innovative ways to tackle the growing issue of hypertension.

Some scientists are turning back the clock and looking to ancient herbal remedies. Humans have been self-medicating with the herbs that they find since before history began.

The fact that people have used these treatments for millennia is certainly not evidenced that they are effective, but they are surely worth a second look.

Foodstyles | The Scottish Clootie Dumpling

The Scottish Clootie Dumpling a la mode

This recipe makes the traditional clootie dumpling that is deeply embedded in Scottish cooking. It is part of the hearth and home approach which makes the food of Scotland so loved everywhere.

Musings …

In our opinion, working with the energy body is working with a structure which is made of feelings and ways of expressing feelings. When you are successful in keeping your rays open, then you become transparent to the energy flowing through. So it is not that you are doing anything when you have cleared your chakras but rather that you have become an instrument, a wind instrument to be exact, so that the Creator may play you, may blow the wind of spirit through your instrument and you then create a song, a melody of love and light from the impression of spirit upon your instrument.

How many times this day have you considered the beauty of a thought? Indeed, how many times this day have you considered your thoughts carefully? We encourage a daily examination of those thoughts and feelings that have changed you this day, that have taken your mood and moved it, either in a positive way, according to your judgment, or in a negative way.


What has attracted you this day? What has repelled you this day? These are the images you wish to balance so that you may see that you are all things and that there is nothing that is foreign to you. Thusly you may gather together your entire self and know its worth, despite surface appearances to the contrary.


We ask that you consider, my brother, the possibility that dwelling within one chakra or another is not the goal of a spiritual seeker. Rather, the spiritual seeker’s goal is to serve the one infinite Creator.

Energy Update | October 4, 2019

Being a multi-dimensional being does not need any validation from the external world. When you dream and feel, you are in a different reality. It might be a too abstract thought, but if you start peeling off the layers of conditioned thinking and start tapping into that innocence that you had as a child, you realize the vastness of existence. 💫

Energy Update | October 2, 2019

Things are literally shifting in your favor. Every single thing that is happening in your life right now is a nudge, a sign, a calling to move forward into your desired state. Don’t attach yourself to anything that’s not lifting you higher. This is a time to step up and step into where you’re headed. You make the claim not only on a mental level, but through action. Everything you associate yourself with is an energy you’re saying you accept in your life. Is it lifting you higher or keeping you stagnant? Are you moving upwards in your mind? Habits? Choices? This is what that feeling you’ve been having is all about. A feeling that something has to give. Well your blessings are here. It’s already with you. You can choose to recognize it and enter a new path. Associate your mind with something greater. Don’t be controlled by few habits, certain situations, the past, or things that no longer lift you up. You have to take your attention back and direct it towards what you want. You are the power that choices what and who you share your life force with. Be bold today. Cut it out. Cut it off. It’s a new month and you can finally decide to get better. The greatest feeling is seeing all your self-work and self-investment pay off. It’s all happening for you today and you can claim that as your truth now. As s new month, set your intention for what you want to manifest and create by the end of this month. Set your intention on the renewed you and the renewed mindset. Where would you be? What would you be doing? Feel that as your truth. It’s time to make this month consciously a success. Declare it. Claim it. Make the choice!

Love, Power and wealth Venus squares Pluto

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

Venus, the planetary goddess of women, love, creativity and luxury is in her day rulership of Libra ♎️ sign of relationships, Justice, and karma, forming a stressful aspect to Pluto, planet of power, death, rebirth, the psyche which means soul, and massive wealth. That’s why the 1% are called plutocrats.

Venus in the tarot is ## The EMPRESS and Pluto was not traditionally associated with any card in the Tarot but as the Modern ruler of Scorpio it would be the card #13 which is Scorpio which Pluto would be associated with as Lord of DEATH /Hades the Underworld.

This aspect can manifest on many levels, it can be a very beautiful enriching, soulful, love-filled, balancing act especially for those with planets at 20 degrees Capricorn and Libra and Cardinal Aries and Cancer too. My husband, daughter, son and I all have exact or within 2 degrees of that.

Energy Update | October 1, 2019

When you are busy counting your blessings, you switch your energy state from lack and limitations to abundance and manifestations. I am blessed is a declaration and a deep feeling that you trust the universe. You are always taking your mind from the repetitive cycle of looking for what’s wrong to seeing what’s right in your life by celebrating your blessings now. This powerful way of thinking and speaking has shifted my life. It uplifts your mood, it opens doors within your spirit, and takes you on a journey of bliss. Happiness is a choice by being busy declaring you are blessed so you change how you feel. You will no longer wait for circumstances to change to be blessed or happy. You are speaking it now. Shifting your mind and welcoming what’s already yours. Your attitude is the most important thing happening in your life not what’s happening. Adjust your mental thoughts by calming blessings now. There’s so much good happening in your life. There’s things you might not even notice because your mind has made you forget what’s real. The truth is, you are blessed. You have always been. You just choose to recognize it when “something happens!” That way of living only takes away from your everyday happiness because you’re waiting for things to happen to feel blessed! Celebrate now. Count your blessings. Look around you. Look inside you. You are extremely blessed!

Pāli Word a Day for October 1, 2019 — pipāsavinaya — the dispelling of thirst

Aniccā vata saṅkhārā,
uppādavayadhammino.
Uppajjitvā nirujjhanti,
tesaṃ vūpasamo sukho.

Impermanent truly are compound things,
by nature arising and passing away.
If they arise and are extinguished,
their eradication brings happiness.
