What is the Law of One?

Our Spiritual Evolution

I have a dear friend with a Ph.D. in Linguistics, he told me language for each person has an emotional connection to words and phrases, and they are different from person to person.  Each of us speaks, listens, and thinks in our own special language; we have been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, morals and attitudes, but one thing we do have in common;  we are here to evolve spiritually in our own way. images (45)

I like to think, being a spiritual person on the positive path, is one whose highest priority is to love others as they love themselves; cares and helps people, animals and the planet; knows that we are all One, consciously attempts to honor this Oneness; and meditates, contemplates and prays to stay connected, and goes deeper in understanding the self. Most of  humanity is on the positive path.

A person on the negative path is someone who loves and cares only about the self; controlling others by any means possible.

Consider, we have choices everyday, positive or negative, also known as  good and evil. Our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of these choices. Positive thinking generates positive emotions resulting in positive actions.  Negative thinking works the same way. We all have these thoughts, we are human.

According to the Law of One,  each one of us are here to evolve spiritually, to choose a path of either positive or negative polarity, to help build our lives according to a Divine plan that is beyond our understanding.   Perhaps Jesus  was trying to tell us the same thing in his message of seek and you shall  find. His teachings are much deeper than what religion teaches.  The personal realization of truth is the science behind all sciences.  But for most people, religion has devolved to a matter of of belief only.  Some believe in Catholicism, others Protestant, others assert the Jewish or Hindu or Muslim or Buddhist is the true way.  The science of religion identifies the universal truth common to all,  the basis for religion.

India’s teaching of Raja Yoga, the science of the soul, provides similar methods to balance the self as discussed in the Law of One.  Other teachers also taught us to look within. Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, “Wise are they who center their hearts on the inner essence of things, not on outer appearances”  In the Dialogue of the Savior Jesus said  ” light comes through the mind and illuminates the whole body. When all things within you are integrated your light will shine everywhere ”  And Buddha said in the The Lankavatara Sutra,  “In order to eliminate the discriminating mind, there must be a complete turning around of one being at the deepest level of consciousness”.

images (27)Infinite Intelligence or Creator, known as God and other names in different religions, is pure energy and is simply beyond our understanding. As we evolve spiritually and seek the truth, there will be a realization the world is not as it seems.  We all have been chosen to be here to learn and understand the ways of love and wisdom. We have been given special gifts to discover and apply them in our world today.  Our job is to positively raise the planet vibration by applying these seven steps in our daily lives.

1. Love Infinite Intelligence

2. Love yourself

3. Love others as you love yourself

4. Love earth and nature.

5. Be of Service to others in your own way.

6. Meditation/Contemplation and pray to further your understanding and connection to Infinite Intelligence.

7.  Realize we are co-creators,  and we create our lives with our thoughts, emotions and actions.

Know yourself,  accept yourself  and realize we are all one with Infinite Intelligence.  Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one.

Understanding The Third Eye and Chakras according to the Law of One

Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with spiritual beings.

Within Taoist self cultivation, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, is located god is lovebetween and behind the eyes and serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledged and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.

In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond physical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge.

images (46)Based on my understanding from studying the Law of One, the third eye, the indigo-ray or 6th chakra is our gateway to connect with Infinite Intelligence. In order to connect, we have to balance, understand and unblock our lower chakras. Each Chakra is a energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others.

higher selfThe more blockages we have in our lower chakras the less flow of Intelligent Energy we receive. Our goal is to unblock our lower chakras and connect with Infinite Intelligence. Loving others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others; understand our thoughts, emotions, and actions create our reality; and meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to Infinite Intelligence.

The Law of One, session 15.12 provides a more advanced understanding of the Chakras. Commentary by Scott Mandelker, PhD provides an in-depth analysis of the 7 chakras in the Law of One, Session 15, part 2.

The path to higher-self

We are all body, mind, and spirit complexes, radiating energy, constantly trying to figure it out the meaning of life and the purpose of our existence.

But since our birth we have been programmed. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and who we become. We live in worldwide system of control to keep us occupied with what has become what we believe is normal. People go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seek the truth, not realizing religion is part of the control system. Organized religion tells us what and how to believe, keeping us from knowing the truth. Guided-Meditation-to-Connect-With-Higher-Self

Jesus was a spiritual teacher. His message was even distorted saying only through him can one be saved. In a discovery in 1945 in Egypt,   collection of thirteen ancient books (called “codices”) containing over fifty texts, was discovered. In these text, the Living Jesus speaks of illusion and enlightenment not of sin and repentance, like the Jesus of the New Testament. Instead of coming to save us from sin, he comes as a teacher who opens access to spiritual understanding, telling us the Kingdom of God is within you. Even Buddha said seeking within, you will find stillness. Here there is no more fear or attachment-only joy.

The spiritual path is unique for each person. For me, the the Law of One has very deep spiritual teachings and has been said to be one of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus.  images (43)

We are all spiritual beings with a higher power within, the higher self. Each individual is responsible for their own awakening by whatever means they deem appropriate. Spirituality is understanding we are all one with infinite intelligence, love yourself, love others, love all of nature, being a service to others, and how your thoughts create your emotions and actions creating your reality. Meditation, contemplation and prayer, are the gateway to the higher self and infinite intelligence. Our goal in this life is to learn the ways of love and wisdom.

Chakras, Science and the Law of One

Here are the meridian points of the feet.  For headaches or sinus issues, massaging the foot in the area  depicted below, may help.

However,  the Chakras familiar to us are known as the seven chakras, the seven energy centers.  The seven chakras are aligned vertically along your back, from the top of your head to just below the bottom of your spine. Each chakra is equivalent to a energy wave field with pure potential.  Image result for chakra pics

The first step is understanding our energy centers. The illustration provides a guide for reference. 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 the 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.”

Scott Mandelker, PHD, provides his insight and teaching regarding Cosmic structure, details of the Ra contact, rapid aging and global energy, self-balancing and chakra activation, and the “ego” concept, in  The Law of One, Session 15, part 1.

Another interesting phenomena, is call the Kundalini.   According to the traditional Yoga philosophies, the term Kundalini refers to both a ‘mechanism’ and an ‘ spiral energy’ in the human body. The energy, prana, is transferred  through the meridian  of the root to the crown Chakra once activated.  It is thought that once activated, an increased amount of pranic energy to be produced in the cells and tissues of the body and to be transmitted to the brain via the nerves in and around the spinal column, leading to alterations in the state of consciousness of the individual. Under the right conditions this enhanced prana operating in the brain can lead to higher states of consciousness such as genius, psychic abilities and mystical experience.  The kundalini is being studied today and believed to Image result for kundalini picturesbe a state that has been the crowning vision of the mystics and the prophets.

Another interesting point is scientists have spent decades studying the extraordinary abilities and anatomy of human sperm.  Recently an international team of researchers  discover a mysterious, spiral-shaped nanostructure in the tails of sperm. Could that be  Kundalini is the sperm tail.   The Law of One provides more insight about  Kundalini in session 49.6.  Scott Mandelker PhD,  provides his commentary and teaching in this presentation  discussing experiential catalyst & north pole/south pole energy dynamics; kundalini flow and 7-chakras’ development.

This chart provides some overview how our energy systems work through  our thoughts, emotions and actions.

There is an advanced spiritual practice within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition known as the Rainbow Body practice. A person of high spiritual development could exit their physical body, vanish in mere days, leaving behind only ashes, becoming  ‘rainbow body,’ of manifest light.  Attaining ‘rainbow body’ is discussed in Zen texts, as well as Zoroastrian, Christian, Manichean, Muslim, Bonpo,  and of course, Vedic texts, among others.  Attaining the ‘light body’ is for everyone, providing  ample proof that it actually does, and can occur. Father Francis V. Tiso  a Catholic priest, scholar, and writer interested in inter-religious dialogue and Tibetan Buddhism,  gave this presentation at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco regarding Rainbow bodies and Resurrection.
There is much to learn and understand about our energy bodies.  Does activating the Chakras and Kundalini result in the Rainbow body?   Perhaps our  teachers were trying to tell us, but just beyond our understanding.
Jesus said,  The kingdom of God is within you, and all around you.
Krishna said,  When the mind becomes still, thinking ceases, this is the beginning of the supreme path.
Buddha said “Seeking within, you will find stillness. Here, there is no more fear or attachment-only joy

Law of One and the Seven Practices

2. PRACTICE TWO: LOVE YOURSELF – Apply the practice of Unity with All-One as an extension towards loving, honoring and respecting yourself. Acknowledge the precious life force within by holding reverence and respect for yourself in all ways. Loving yourself is the action of Self Sovereignty, which is the natural state of embodying God’s Eternal Love. As a manifestation of God’s eternal spirit of Love, one has the ability to choose to create personal freedom without harming others. Have courage to remove the obstacles of pain and fear to become embodied Love, as God’s spirit is always found within.
3. PRACTICE THREE: LOVE OTHERS – As you learn to love yourself, love others. Acknowledge the precious life force in others by holding love, reverence and respect for others. Loving others as you love yourself, is the natural state of Self Sovereignty as you give others the same reverence for their life, as you give your own life. Through practicing self-love and loving others, no approval, worth or esteem issues come into question, as all is loved equally.
4. PRACTICE FOUR: LOVE EARTH AND NATURE – Loving the Earth and all her creations, the kingdoms of nature, plants, animals and mineral, which are all alive, conscious and intelligent energy beings. Acknowledge the precious life force present in images (2)all of God’s creation, by holding reverence and respect for nature. Doing so restores balance and harmony to nature, and the intelligent energy of all of earth’s creations will respond to cooperate with humankind. Humans living in discord with nature create many events that are considered to be “at the mercy of” the untamed forces. As humans learn to live in harmony with earth and the nature kingdom, the natural creatures will align to be in harmony and cooperation with all inhabitants.
5. PRACTICE FIVE: SERVICE TO OTHERS – Upon firmly loving yourself and honoring your path, find methods to be of service to others that do not overstep personal boundaries of discernment. Being of service to others does not include consumptive childmodeling, such as victim-victimizer, parasitism or emotional vampirism. Being of service does not hold an ego perspective of entitlement, expectation or attachment. Practice being of service with unconditional love, and naturally flowing in the moment. The energy exchange made between participants being of service to others, amplifies and expands consciousness growth like no other method. The more you amplify the energetic field of being in service to others, the more joy, harmony and gifts will be brought into your life. The more service you dedicate to Gods plan, the Law of One, the more spiritual support and spiritual presence one can exchange with God Force.
6. PRACTICE SIX: CONSCIOUSNESS EXPANSION – Learn to develop inner clarity and spiritual integrity by intending to develop personal consciousness and/or spiritual identity. To embody one’s spiritual identity, one’s mind must be initiated and disciplined. If the ego is in authority of the body it will repel the spiritual identity from embodiment. If the mental body creates obstacles to the spiritual identity, the spiritual identity, therefore the consciousness, will not be experienced. The first step to consciousness old peopleexpansion is becoming aware of mind control and the quality content of thoughts and belief systems. The second step is to cooperate with the process of mental and physical discomfort by having patience and waiting in the void of silence. Learn to quiet the mind, sublimate the ego and be still. Once stillness, mental discipline and ego sublimation has been achieved, listen to your inner spirit to receive guidance. Inner Guidance will always lead to the process of re-education to experience continual consciousness expansion free of fear and dogma. The Inner Christos always guides one towards choosing more love and peace via consciousness expansion of the spiritual identity.
7. PRACTICE SEVEN: RESPONSIBLE CO-CREATION – As one becomes more infused with the eternal love of the spiritual identity, the intelligent blueprint activates the divine purpose of being as a co-creator with God. The spiritual identity and the intelligent blueprint of divine purpose are one and the same. Clarity of purpose and direction becomes clearer and clearer as one commits to live in service to the principles of All-ONE or Christ spirit. Knowing and Living our purpose brings joy, peace and fulfillment, even when facing adversity or challenges. Once we achieve “knowing”, we are responsible for that knowing, and practice responsible co-creation with the All-One. A responsible co-creator knows all manifestations are in partnership with the All-One. We do not possess cropped-hqdefault-1.jpgor control anything, so needs, desires and superimposing will, should be avoided. We are stewards of God Spirit to Serve Others in responsible co-creation with All-One. From this knowing, and living this principle, we are eternally free of karmic exchanges.

Meditation can change our world

The greatest thing about meditation is the probability it could change our world. Imagine millions, if not billions of people around the world meditating, vibrating love and light. With love vibration, our positive energy resonates at a high frequency expressing our positive spiritual qualities of compassion, wisdom, gratitude and appreciation – all that inspires, empowers and enhances the earth vibration for those on the positive path.

The love vibration around the world would generate and create a positive state of _DSC5911copy (2)consciousness, freeing us of negative thoughts and behaviors. After all we are co-creators according to the Law of One. Scientific studies has proven global meditation, focusing intention on positive changes in hearts and minds, can positively change our world.

Imagine a world with no negativity, corruption, disease, greed or war. I know,

the first thought is “impossible”. That reminds me of something that keeps coming to mind. “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” The Creator is within each of us, waiting to be awaken.

The ancients knew about meditation since 1500 BC starting as a religious practice. Eastern cultures have been using it for centuries understanding our bodies had a vital life force, a higher power known by many different names: higher self, spirit, kundli, soul, chi, prana, divine spark, and chakras. The vital life force is a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Recently, science proved there are Meridians in our bodies for the flow of energy, the vital life force. Consider that meditation helps us understand this vital force and is God’s gift to all of us so we may find our way home. _DSC5554copy

It starts with us, with you. Meditation practice has countless benefits.

There are online meditation Groups supporting your meditation practices, providing ideas and concepts. Law of one practices, found in session 10.14, may be helpful in the acceleration toward the Law of One as well these seven steps.

 

Spiritual Energy Creates Harmonious Spirit

Have you ever considered the sun  or the earth spiritual energy. The energy that nourishes our higher self,  our spirit, soul, and higher-self or divine force. In Chinese cultures, this is chi or qi and other cultures ki, prana, chakras and kundli. As spiritual beings with a body and mind, we have a life force made of electromagnetic energy or _DSC5550copyenergy that cannot even be measured or explained. Even our thoughts help create our reality through emotions.

Sunlight is something we cannot live without. Light is the food for all life on earth. The human body, according to the doctrine of chromotherapy, is basically composed of colors. Insufficient sunlight will result in low Vitamin D deficiencies, leading to the development of prostate and breast cancer, memory loss, and an increased risk for developing dementia and schizophrenia. We have been told to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves but what is really happening? We are light beings with chakras and the energy of the sun has the colors of the rainbow. Every creature and plant on earth is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions.

Grounding as we all know when we go to the bench improves sleep and reduces stress. When I go barefoot, I am more relaxed and have a feeling of connection to the earth. Grounding is bare skin to the earth and performing Chi gong or any meditative practice outside barefoot is an excellent way to cultivate energy as well connect to mother nature. We all wear shoes and that prevents us from getting the benefits from the earth. Grounding is a simple way to prevent and help inflammation with these techniques.

Qigong or chi gong. My first experience with qigong was in 2012 when my brother was diagnosed with cancer. We found Master Kim, a former martial arts expert who was also an acupuncturist and taught qigong. I learned qigong was a slow meditative movement cultivating qi throughout the body. Being westerners we were a little slow in learning the process but we did learn still practice today. My brother had surgery and with the excellent care his wife provided with essential oils and diet he is cancer free today.

Meditation and prayer. My brother’s experience with cancer led me to wanting a deeper _DSC5618copy (2)understanding of meditation. I studied various meditative methods, mindfulness, meditation at Buddhist temple and even mantras by a Buddhist priest. I took a course titled, The Spiritual Brain: Science and Religion experience by Dr. Andrew Newberg. I learned of a 12 minute exercise, called the Kirtan Kriya is a type of meditation practiced daily for 8 weeks will improve cognition and activate parts of the brain that are central to memory.

Emotions control who we are and what be become. Paracelsus, Father of Modern Medicine  said “The spirit is the master, imagination the tool, and the body the plastic material . . . The power of the imagination is a great factor in medicine. It may produce diseases in man and in animals, and it may cure them . .. Ills of the body may be cured by remedies or by the power of the spirit acting through the soul.”_DSC6031copy (2)

We live in a world of distractions. Fear, anger, greed but love is the one emotion that would overcome all. It is also the most difficult to understand fully and certainly the most difficult to achieve. Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself. According to the Law of One, our purpose on earth is to learn how to love and be of services to others. A world where everyone love one another as Jesus said,  would heal the world.

Divine Inspiration

You will remember also that in your holy work which you call the Bible, detail of the life of the one known to you as Jesus is full of times spent alone. Perhaps, my friends, you cannot find a wilderness in these crowded days, but we would ask that you consider the possible virtue of finding that silence within yourself in which you cease to follow the road of everyday life and find yourself upon the trackless desert where nothing is previously set or known. Allow yourself to listen within yourself. There is a source of mistic46_00_smalllove which can only speak to one who asks. The content of that speaking cannot be   predicted, but there are qualities that can certainly be shared—clarity and sweetness. As you go into meditation seek for that love which is within. Do not expect the road to be already drawn for you, for the wilderness is trackless, and yet, my friends, from each meditation the way before you becomes less crowded, the road more wide and the possibilities for love more evident. – Hatonn

The impulse of the manifestation of yourself which is human has the instinct to grasp and hold those things which are perceived as being needed. There is the stretching and the reaching for enough to withstand what might occur. Yet change does not happen well to entities which are holding on to anything. What if in this instant the gravity you experience was reversed. Would you do a somersault or would you fall all over yourselves while explaining that this was impossible. How much of change is painful because it is resisted? There is in the makeup which you have supplied yourselves with a great tool; as always, we mention this tool, that being meditation. The levels upon which are lived the life are several. You see, to unite the spirit, the mind, and the body to promote that unity which appears as health, that health may be greatly aided by the frequent remembrance of the ground of being during meditation, even if it is only for a second. The various pieces of self are knitted up in that opening to the presence within that loved you before you ever hoped to love it. How precious each of you is. – Q’uo

Essential Advice on Meditation

There are always  questions about Meditation and techniques. This is something I read and wanted to share.  Enjoy!

ESSENTIAL ADVICE ON MEDITATION   excerpts from Teachings by Sogyal Rinpoche

When you read books about meditation, or often when meditation is is  presented by different groups, much of the emphasis falls  on the techniques. In the West, people tend images-25to be very interested in the  “technology”  of  meditation.  However,  by  far  the   most important feature of meditation is not technique, but the way  of being,  the  spirit, which is called the  “posture”,  a  posture which  is  not so much physical, but more to do  with  spirit  or attitude.

It  is  well  to recognize that when you start  on  a  meditation practice,  you  are  entering a totally  different  dimension  of reality.  Normally  in life we put a great deal  of  effort  into achieving  things,  and  there is a  lot  of  struggle  involved, whereas  meditation is just the opposite, it is a break from  how we normally operate.

Meditation  is  simply a question of being, of  melting,  like  a piece  of  butter  left in the sun. It has  nothing  to  do  with whether  or not you “know” anything about it, in fact, each  time you  practice  meditation  it  should be fresh,  as  if  it  were happening  for  the very first time. You just quietly  sit,  your body  still,  your speech silent, your mind at  ease,  and  allow thoughts to come and go, without letting them play havoc on  you.

If you need something to do, then watch the breathing. This is  a very  simple process. When you are breathing out, know  that  you are  breathing  out.  When  you breath  in,  know  that  you  are breathing  in, without supplying any kind of extra commentary  or internalized mental gossip, but just identifying with the breath. That  very simple process of mindfulness processes your  thoughts and emotions, and then, like an old skin being shed, something is peeled off and freed.

Usually  people  tend  to  relax the  body  by  concentrating  on different  parts.  Real  relaxation comes  when  you  relax  from within,  for  then  everything else will ease  itself  out  quite naturally.

When  you begin to practice, you center yourself, in  touch  with  your  “soft spot”, and a298962fbbaed17bed11296d59c324b4--buddha-meditation-meditation-quotesjust remain there. You need not  focus  on  anything in particular to begin with. Just be spacious, and allow  thoughts  and emotions to settle. If you do so, then later,  when you use a method such as watching the breath, your attention will  more easily be on your breathing. There is no particular point on the  breath on which you need to focus, it is simply the  process  of  breathing.  Twenty-five percent of your attention is  on  the breath,  and  seventy-five percent is relaxed.  Try  to  actually identify  with the breathing, rather than just watching  it.  You may choose an object, like a flower, for example, to focus  upon.

Sometimes you are taught to visualize a light on the forehead, or in  the heart. Sometimes a sound or a mantra can be used. But  at  he  beginning  it is best to simply be spacious, like  the  sky.  Think of yourself as the sky, holding the whole universe.

When  you  sit, let things settle and allow all  your  discordant self  with  its genuineness and unnaturalness to  dissolve,  out  of  that  rises  your real being. You  experience  an  aspect  of yourself which is more genuine and more authentic-the “real” you.

As  you  go deeper, you begin to discover and connect  with  your fundamental goodness.  The  whole point of meditation is to get used to the that  aspect which you have forgotten. In Tibetan “meditation” means  “getting used to”. Getting used to what? to your true nature, your  Buddha nature.  This  is  why,  in the  highest  teaching  of  Buddhism, Dzogchen, you are told to “rest in the nature of mind”. You  just quietly  sit  and let all thoughts and concepts dissolve.  It  is like  when the clouds dissolve or the mist evaporates, to  reveal the clear sky and the sun shining down. When everything dissolves like  this, you begin to experience your true nature, to  “live”.

Then you know it, and at that moment, you feel really good. It is unlike  any  other  feeling of well-being  that  you  might  have experienced.  This is a real and genuine goodness, in  which  you  feel  a  deep sense of peace, contentment  and  confidence  about yourself.

It is good to meditate when you feel inspired. Early mornings can bring that inspiration, as the best moments of the mind are early in  the  day,  when  the mind is calmer  and  fresher  (the  time traditionally recommended is before dawn). It is more  appropriate to  sit when you are inspired, for not only is it easier than  as you  are in a better frame of mind for meditation, but  you  will also be more encouraged by the very practice that you do. This in turn will bring more confidence in the practice, and later on you will  be able to practice when you are not inspired. There is  no need  to meditate for a long time: just remain quietly until  you are  a little open and able to connect with your  heart  essence. That is the main point.

After that, some integration, or meditation in action. Once  your mindfulness  has been awakened by your meditation, your  mind  is calm  and your perception a little more coherent. Then,  whatever you  do,  you  are present, right there. As  in  the  famous  Zen master’s  saying:  “When I eat, I eat; when I  sleep,  I  sleep”.   Whatever  you do, you are fully present in the act. Even  washing dishes,  if  it is done one-pointedly, can  be  very  energizing, freeing, cleansing. You are more peaceful, so you are more “you”.  You assume the “Universal You”.

One  of  the fundamental points of the spiritual  journey  is  to persevere along the path. Though one’s meditation may be good one day, not so good the next,  like  changes  in  scenery, essentially it is not the experiences, good or bad which count so much, but rather that when you persevere, the real practice  rubs off on you and comes through person-meditatingboth good and bad. Good and bad  are simply apparitions, just as there may be good or bad weather, yet the sky is always unchanging. If you persevere and have that  sky like  attitude  of  spaciousness,  without  being  perturbed   by emotions and experiences, you will develop stability and the real profoundness  of meditation will take effect. You will find  that gradually  and almost unnoticed, your attitude begins to  change.

You  do not hold on to things as solidly as before, or  grasp  at them  so strongly, and though crisis will still happen,  you  can handle them a bit better with more humor and ease. You will  even be  able to laugh at difficulties a little, since there  is  more space between you and them, and you are freer of yourself. Things become  less  solid,  slightly ridiculous, and  you  become  more light-hearted.
