You come up with a solid, workable idea that is good for business.  Emotions mix favorably with the mind and result in good, logic based thinking.  You’ll thank yourself later for decisions you make today.  Friends and groups are in sync.  You love each other and work together harmoniously.  If you have been doing something that has put you out of touch with the times, you will realize your mistake and correct your course.  A modest adjustment could make you “with it” in a new way and lead to success in an area where you couldn’t quite figure out what was blocking you.  The block or obstacle is gone.  Go forward.

Romance is alive today.  You rise above yourself with enthusiasm.  This works to counter-balance a pressured feeling associated with a woman, emotions or your standing in the world.  There are two doors to choose from today: the enthusiastic door and the fearful door. Door #1 is open to all possibility, and Door #2 traps you in worrisome patterns from the past.  If what you are doing reminds you of a prior troubling situation you have chosen Door #2. You can at any moment choose again and find happiness. Avoid rumination and running scenarios over and over in your head, but do tend to business.

Can Spiritual Practice conquer illness?

Can Spiritual Practice conquer illness?

Original hexagram is Thunder over Mountain; 62
The Expansion is Lake over Heaven; 43
The Kernel is Heaven over Heaven; 1 BY WAY OF Lake over Wind; 28

Our spiritual practice provides us with the nourishment that we need in order to grow, emotionally, mentally and some would even argue physically.  And, of course spiritually.  It is medicine for the soul, and food for the body.  We are not separate from the world, rather we are connected to it and we are better served when we meditate with it. What is important to realize is that the world cannot offer us anything, really.  If we want to seek the truth as Lord Buddha did, then we have to be in the world, but not of the world. Where we run into problems is believing in what we are experiencing to be real and buying into the emotion we may be experiencing. What causes illness? Many say unhappiness.

When we can put our spiritual practice into our daily lives, and live it as a philosophy; a way of life, then we begin to experience a breakthrough.  As if those frozen lakes that reside within us begin to break apart, and allow the sunshine to penetrate the depths of our existence.  In these moments, our faults and emotions no longer have power over us, rather we have power over them~ and progress occurs.

The question is more like, what can happen as a result of my spiritual practice? Strength, vitality, creative action, and an awakening of power that can lead to enlightenment~ a development of higher nature.  We gain clarity and direction, confidence and courage.  In the end, a sublime success.

If illness is caused by unfortunate circumstance, whatever that might be, then it would seem appropriate to cultivate whenever possible the things that promote and foster fortunate circumstances.  What does that mean?  Engage in virtuous activity, allow your intentions to be set on helping and serving the common good, and be careful as to not exhaust yourself in worldly things.  The text indicates that now is a time for change, and extraordinary measures are needed.  These only come by way of our spiritual practices.  It is a time to take action with gentleness~ continuous, but gentle penetration to the meaning of the situation.

In the end, the world can not offer you anything, only what you have accomplished in your spiritual practices.  Have a wonderful Wednesday, and enjoy your prayers.

A new beginning is possible today.  Men, women and children operate together as a happy and cooperative unit.  Think of your accomplishments and have gratitude.  Remember Albert Schweitzer’s words “Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being.  Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light”.  Who has rekindled your inner light?  Contact that person and express your gratitude.  This is good for both sides.  You begin anew today.  Aim high!

Do we have to be like our parents?

Do we have to be like our parents?

A question from the field; do we have to be like our parents?

Original hexagram is Lake over Mountain; 31
The Expansion is Heaven over Mountain; 33
The Kernel is Heaven over Heaven; 1 BY WAY OF Heaven over Wind; 44

The interesting thing about our relationships with our parents is that it’s, well, karma.  There is an attraction between us and our parents, and it’s really nothing more than karmic consequences coming to fruition. The I Ching refers to it as the laws of nature, “…powers that attract each other, so they unite.”  While we are growing up, ideally our parents look after us and take care of us. Most of the time we are receptive to their giving but pretty soon we enter a stage where we don’t really want to follow their advice, be like them, and want to branch out and be different people.  If it has been a difficult relationship, we may want to be completely different from them, and actually work at not having any similarities.

Whether we get along with our parents or not, we do venture off and find our way.  This is our own karma ripening and as each potential is exhausted it moves us in one direction or the other.  We may find ourselves distant from our parents for some time  as we travel our path seeking our own desires and journeys.  During this period of time, ideally, we grow and develop, learning to appreciate our parents for what they were able to give us.  Being able to forgive the misgivings, and having compassion for our parents is a sign of progress and inner strength.

Ultimately, our relationship with our parents can be instrumental in our development along our spiritual journey.  Forgiving our parents, and loving them unconditionally, regardless of their development, can and will bring us ease and peace~this is the power of compassion.  We can set the example for our parents, living our lives as virtuous and kind people will have a positive impact on them and our relationship with them. Another important note is that by developing ourselves we become stronger with our discernment and attractions; letting go of what no longer serves us and allowing what does to rise.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.  Think of your parents and make heartfelt prayers of gratitude.  May all beings see the benefit of kindness.

Someone is very generous to you today.  People feel magnanimous.  Groups are solidly behind their leader and are willing to recognize good behavior.  This is a good day to receive a promotion or recognition of a job well done.  Someone who behaved in a surprising way yesterday could make amends today. Love is in the air!  Emotional happiness rules the day.  Write people you love, and make declarations of love.    Forward activity is good today, and women are especially beautiful today.  Tell them!  Spend time with people you love, and you’ll notice you enjoy the people you spend time with.

Making the most of Monday?

Making the most of Monday?

Original hexagram is Mountain over Lake; 41
The Expansion is within the original hexagram
The Kernel is Earth over Earth; 2 BY WAY OF Earth over Thunder; 24

Keep it simple!  It’s important to understand that having less is not always a bad thing, rather sometimes it’s better for one to have less in their life and practice cultivating simplicity.  Today is not a time to start a lot of new things, however it is a good time for one to undertake one thing that brings them a sense of inner peace; completing that lingering project sitting in the “in” box or catching up on filing.  Today is a time to keep it simple and scheduling some quiet time.  This allows time for the inner growth to happen. Wealth will come in time if there is sincerity behind what one is doing, and to some extent a level of sacrifice.

One can have cooperative relationships with other people, and all living creatures, thus learning how to coexist with all of nature; achieving a deeper level of understanding of the relationships between the laws of nature and the laws of people; moving away from old habitual tendencies and cultivating new, more beneficial ones. Of course this does not happen over night, there is a period of realizing that there are turning points in one’s life.  In the more difficult times and situations, it’s best step back, get a breath of fresh air, and then start again with a newer outlook.

Be careful of blaming others, schedule in quiet time and practice simplicity.  The benefits will be inner growth development.  Do your best, be kind, and have a wonderful Monday.

12/14/09   Monday

Things begun early in the day end up being scrapped or else nothing comes to mind.  As the day progresses a new and inspiring energy emerges.  The feeling of emerging from a murky emotional state into a clear, exciting and happy state is present.  Life is fun again and you are ready to join the fray.  An enthusiasm is present.  Solid decisions are made based on a favorable combination of inspiration and down to earth thinking.  At the same time men and authority figures can behave in ways that seem weird, eccentric, unreliable or shocking.  The surprise component is present today.  Try not to lose your composure over something that suddenly happens.  Try not to drink too much. Be philosophical.  A sudden loss could be re-gained tomorrow.

Do Not Follow

Wheel Of Life

A message from Jetsunma:
To live in such sickness that you have hysterical love for one person

And having nothing but rage, judgment, and hatred for everyone else?

There is no love at all! Just sickness, narcissism, an unbalanced mind.

To rage at the success and happiness of others while cursing their name? This is not what the Buddha taught.

To taunt, harm and rant wishing for another’s downfall while salivating to pick up what shreds and crumbs that may be left?  This is demonic activity.  This will result in a lower rebirth.

To claim to have power, realization, virtue, intelligence, compassion while living a life that caused harm and no benefit? This is heinous, as Lord Buddha taught.

To have lived a life of violence, cruelty, dishonesty, lies, an ugly, tawdry life and then claim you are a high spiritual being is, if not so terribly tragic,  a dark and evil joke.

No one is laughing. We stand back and watch this monstrous activity as children, horrified and yet watching, unable to turn away from something so ugly.

To soil the Holy Dharma so thoroughly, to act as if there is no cause and result, to claim spiritual authority when one has lived a life without kindness or ethics is the result of having broken one’s Samaya uncountable times.

This is why the Buddha taught us to abandon Samaya breakers. And to embrace the pure BUDDHA, DHARMA and SANGHA with all our hearts and minds.

Abandon demons and their unholy darkness.  Do not follow  thieves and liars down to the lower realms.
