Native American Prayer

Oh, Great Spirit                        images (40)

Whose voice I hear in the winds,

And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me, I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.

f62be29bf3e8ba2ff3739268ae22f947--native-american-sayings-american-indiansMake my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

 

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,3b6f2341f9be56ec513da5b22529b265--native-americans-love-this

but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.

Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.

So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.

 

(translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887)

We are One

images (1)Jesus

As I look around me, I see many with smiles on their faces, yet others in a daze seem to be moving involuntarily, merely surviving life rather than living it.
Today with all the distractions of life, it is easy to get caught up in our own little world. Easy to turn a deaf ear to the cries for help, Easy to turn a blind eye to the wrongs we see committed, but the most harrowing of all is we find it easy to simply pretend our life is independent of all those around us, and our actions or lack there of only affect ourselves.
We are counted as many, yet in reality we are one. Our lives are entwined our destinies intermingled and yet our hearts we keep to ourselves. We may share it with our families, our children, our spouses and yet those who need our hearts the most we never give a second thought to.
We change ourselves and the world around us when we love unconditionally. Love is not just an action or word it’s the definition of humanity it’s the answer to the meaning of life and death. Turn off the television, put down the phones, close the books, and look inside ourselves. When we have truly become one with our self our capacity for love is beyond our own understanding, bridging the unity of all to one. Take your heart and the love over filling it and give it to all you know to all you see and most importantly to those who live in the creases of life that are not heard or seen by anyone.

 

 

Sprouting our Spiritual Seeds

Planting heirloom seeds in the garden, nurturing and watching them come to life is a passion. No man made fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides, only water from a well and sunlight. Mother Nature provides the nutrients through recycling leaves and plants, and ash from the fire pit. I am just the caretaker. Watching that seed sprout and take form takes patience. Disease and insects get the weak, animals trying to survive take the strong. Mother Nature’s weather, with its hot and cold, wet and dry, always affects the harvest.

 

The human spirit is like seed, capable of growing and developing. We are energy, called by many different names, soul, spirit, prana, chi, it is our very essence, waiting to be activated. Our hearts generate electromagnetic energy field can be measured several feet from our bodies. Albert Einstein said “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”

We are like that seed trying to sprout; with so much discussion about different religions, their beliefs, different gods, heaven, hell, reincarnation. Since birth, we have been so ingrained in our belief systems, it is hard to see the forest for the trees. No religion isimages (27) better than any other; and there is truth in all religions, you just have to find it for yourself. In order to truly understand our existence and purpose, a person has to step outside that box and that comfort zone.

In 1981, contact was made with what was believed to be an extraterrestrial with an entity named RA. Ra identified himself as the humble messenger of the “Law of One”. The message, simply put, the Law of One is the Universal Truth that “All Is One.” That contact lasted until 1984 resulting in 106 sessions with the L&L group that used “tuned trance telepathy” to communicate. Each session is documented and covers a wide variety of information. The sessions opens with, “I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator” and closes with, “I am Ra. I leave you in the glory and the peace of the One Creator. Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the One Creator. In joy, we leave you. Adonai.”

The Law of One or called the “One Law” in ancient times, is embedded in all religions today. According to “The Teachings of the Essenes” by Dr. Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, Moses discovered the One Law, the totality of all laws. He found that this one Law governed all manifestations of life, and it governed the whole universe.

So I am learning and practicing the Law of One. This blog is to share what I have learned and provide some insight and information based on the “Law of One” and our religious systems. Check for more information on the Law of One.

In the Gospel of Thomas , verse 20, The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what the kingdom of heaven is like.”  He said to them, “It is like a mustard seed. It is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.”

Love and Light

The Power of Love

We are emotional beings. Love is personal to each of us and cannot be defined or explained in simple terms.  In 1763, Emanuel Swedenborg said In Love and Wisdom, “Man knows that there is such a thing as love, but he does not know what love is. He knows that there is such a thing as love from common speech, as when it is said, he loves me, a king loves his subjects, and subjects love their king, a husband loves his wife, a mother her children, and conversely; also, this or that one loves his country, his fellow citizens, his neighbor; and likewise of things abstracted from person, as when it is said, one loves this or that thing. But although the word love is so universally used, hardly anybody knows what love is.”

Do we know any more today about love? In 1763, there were 700 million people in the world with libraries and horses with cobblestone streets in sparsely populated areas, taking days to get information from one place to another.

Today we have  11 times more people with instant information on our cell phones, iPads, and laptops. Just google it and you get instant answers; you just have to check the images (28)validity. What we have learned is that the heart electromagnetic field can be measured several feet from our bodies. Our emotions are constantly up and down, positive and negative, always present and affecting our energy field. Love is a powerful emotion that we have felt in our relationships with families, friends, co-workers, lovers and former lovers, school mates, casual acquaintances and strangers. Our emotions dominate us, the way we think, sleep, eat, our moods and how we perceive life.

Consider, 7.7 billion people on earth radiating either positive or negative vibrations, nonstop; affecting our homes, jobs, cities, countries and our world. Our emotions are affected by everything we do, hear and see.

 Jesus said “love your neighbor as yourself.

Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, “nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself.”

“As a mother would protect her only child with her life … cultivate a boundless love towards all beings.” Buddha

Imagine 7.7 billion people radiating love and positive vibrations and how that would change our world …. Just food for thought.

The Law of One Teacher

When I started reading the Law of One I found it complex, but intriguing, metaphysical, spiritual and scientific.  Additionally, it provided a sense of reality and understanding of our world; so much information and insight regarding our past, present and our future.

The message and  understanding was so complex, that I needed a teacher.  That’s when I  discovered Scott  Mandelker.  Scott Mandelker, Ph.D, presents a reading and interpretation of the Law of One that started in December 2013 on youtube. As of this date, he just completed session 94 out of 106.   He is a excellent teacher, dedicated to providing a better understanding of the Law Of One with honesty and humor to all those who are seeking.

He completed his doctorate in East West Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco in 1992. His Ph.D. combines eclectic Western psychology with intensive study of Eastern religions, and followed upon years of formal training in US and Asian Buddhist temples in Japanese Zen and Thai Theravada traditions.

Although the material may be complex, the message was “ We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”

A different slant on what world religions have taught us?   Was this the same messages of all the sacred teachers; teachings of love and wisdom?   That is up to each person to discover for themselves.

Meditation and Rainbows

Meditation is the new buzz word for the west and we are learning the positive benefits to our well being.  Meditation can have positive effects on our lives and what we do, so let’s explore meditation and the possibilities.  Meditation is defined as thinking deeply or focusing one’s mind for a period of time, in silence or with the aid of chanting, for religious or spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation.  Meditation is the all-embracing sense of oneness, an intimate connection to yourself and the world around you.cropped-healing-from-the-inside-out.jpg

Based on Hindu Scripture, meditation has been practiced since 1500 BCE, starting as a religious practice.  The practice spread to China and India around the fifth century BCE and other forms of Meditation developed within religions including Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity.

 

The bible speaks of meditation in Psalm 1:1-2 which says “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

c58c4b1d4b64af2eed4c616860684bafCould the law of the Lord be considered the same as the Law of One?

In Joshua 1:8 God tells Joshua, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”

Buddha said “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance.  Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”

Now the Catholic Church is recognizing the benefits of meditation.  As we seek and explore the truth, our past has much to offer.  What are the ancients telling us about meditation?

Is there a much deeper meaning for which daily meditation practice could raise our awareness and awaken the consciousness?  With countless belief systems all striving f6280c59a4a90cb94a785f77f97dd826--mind-body-spirit-chakra-healingtoward the same goal, meditation may be most beneficial in our endeavor to connect to our higher power.  God, known by many different names in different languages, is ultimately the one Infinite Creator.  Consider, within each of us we have a divine spark, our soul, spirit, the essence of our being, pure energy.  Energy is made up of  Chakras, centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number. Each center has a color and all seven represents a rainbow. Rainbows appear in seven colors of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet).  Each Chakra center is controlled by emotions.

The first step is understanding our energy centers.  The illustrations provides a guide for a better understanding.  Based on the Law of One, our challenge is to unblock our first three chakras and develop our  4th, the heart or green ray, and 5th, the blue-ray.  In session 15.12 in the “Law of One” Ra said, “The center of heart, or green ray, is ee2c9aa37eb3dda8e3d572006e469858--chakra-meditation-chakra-healingthe center from which third-density beings may springboard, shall we say, towards infinite intelligence.  Blockages in this area may manifest as difficulties in expressing what you may call universal love or compassion.”

“The blue-ray center of energy streaming is the center which, for the first time, is outgoing as well as inpouring.  Those blocked in this area may have difficulty in grasping the spirit/mind complexes of its own entity and further difficulty in expressing such understandings of self. Entities blocked in this area may have difficulties in accepting communication from other mind/body/spirit complexes.”

meditation2It goes even deeper and full understanding of the true powers of our Chakras remains a mystery to us.  Father Francis V. Tiso, a Catholic priest, scholar, and writer interested in inter-religious dialogue and Tibetan Buddhism was a witness to the death of Khenpo A-chos, a Gelugpa monk of Khams who died in 1998 resulting a rainbow body or “body of light” after death.  It is reported that in the last 1,200 years, there have been approximately 160,000 documented cases of people turning into literal light bodies.  Rainbow bodies may be another way to ascend, the resurrection of the divine spark, soul or spirit, an energy transfer.  66cfa3a8df5d499550338f2a824ee448--lao-tzu-quotes-zen-quotes

From a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual standpoint, the benefits of meditation are countless. Daily Meditation practice, a few minutes in the morning and a few minutes in the evening to start.  Try to clear the mind for just a few minutes each day.  Make it a habit and in time you will realize difference it will make
