Fundaments of Freedom

My unedited notes:

Inner priorities can free or confine.  Let’s take a moment to reevaluate how we ‘roll’.            

Reaccessing your goals.  Have the courage to tack like a sailboat.  To tack is not to say you were mistaken. It is just life.

Self Honesty

Facing the wind 

Lying to yourself is the greatest form of self betrayal

Samskaras—impressions left upon the mind… the sum total of lifes stored experiences…. Karma.   Fight your karma with everything you’ve got.

commitment to stands taken can be the biggest obstacle in life.

Aspire to the divinity within, not allegience to notions  Freedom lies beyond beliefs and convictions.  It is a pathless path, yet is eternally committed to the light within. Do not confuse beliefs or notions with that Inner Light.  Wisdom lies beyond notions but is the guiding light that leads to freedom from the chains of such addictions.  Truth is an abstraction.

Freedom lies beyond limitations imposed upon the mind.

Follow the heart of your being, not the samkaras imposed upon the emotional heart.

Clinging to convictions can overshadow decades of meditation.

 Having to be right all the time to feel good about yourself is the guaranteed path to a life of inner torment and conflict.

Echoes of Truth perceived as Truth hold Truth at bay.

True learning means moving beyond what you know.  It is not just reinforcement of what you already think you know.

 Always be willing to reevaluate.

Do not evaluate yourself or others based upon the biggest mistake you/they ever made. 

Facing an error you may have made is not an annihilation of your self… rather it is an affirmation of it.  Do not allow the surface of your life to define your depth, your self worth.

 “What we do in life echoes in eternity” Russell Crowe in movie Gadiator

Life is a paradox

 “…to believe in the heroic makes heroes.”

Enchantment’s Gift

Blog:

Title:  Enchantment’s Gift

Blurb: A Holiday Message for all People, all Creeds:  Love, Family, Enchantment, and Christmas

What is enchantment.

Why people turn their back to enchantment

world benefits from knowing history of christianity… parallels all religions.

The essential question: What Christ really knew?

“God loves us so much that he gave His only begotten son”:  what that really means

Is ‘faith’ a good thing?

What is a Christian?

On Love, Family, Enchantment, and Christmas

Gnostics and orthodox

Would UFOs or no miracles compromise religion.

rejection of religion is really a crying out for a deeper understanding one that makes sense and one that satisfies the heart and the mind.

 Rejection of the Gnostics, so long ago, resulted in abandonment of an essential part of Christianity

Celebrate diversity

The gift of kindness

Unity in midst of diversity.  vs   polarization via homogenization of perspective

harmony does not mean homogenization.. it mean cultural integrity and distinction in midst of honoring other peoples.

acknowledging distinctions of different subcultures without stirring it into one big culture.

“Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot.”

CLARENCE THOMAS

stats contradict somewhat but USA is 70% christian though 45% say it should not be predominantly consider any one religion.  India is 80% hindu.  in USA, hindus and buddhists make up close to same percentage as jewish,

religion is not just spiritual.. it is also cultural… and like culturing a fine wine, it must not be mixed and remixed at will to form can exquisite product.  USA is cultured as christian.

Debated history of Christianity: In one way it matter tremendously.  In a deeper sense, it does not matter at all.

What happened or what people believe or do not believe about him?  well what really matters is the beautiful enchantment it enlivens in the hearts of those that allow it to, regardless of creeds.

Never underestimate the potential of enchantment, of love.  Once embraced,  enchantment heals all levels of life.

Knowing the Heart

blurb:

Confusion, self betrayal, Armageddon

Blog:

My unedited notes:

“…Honestly expressing yourself.  Now it is very difficult to do…” B Lee

the art of self expression

politics in a nutshell: Confusion, self betrayal, Armageddon

self betrayal leads to personal and global armageddons. where the heart leads, does the mind follow?

Eventually does not even know what one really feels/believes

Cannot be honest with another went not honest with one’s self

Taking the time and care needed for self expression is rare .

Not doing so boxes one into a corner

Diplomacy vs self betrayal

lying to ones self

yet few are willing to [capable of] really talk from the heart

so it builds and builds until explodes in irrationality

do ones actions align with ones feelings in ones quiet moments,

future of the free world

            Biden sells oil from strategic oil reserve to China and China turns around and says it to Europe at a profit

            Woke is permutations of hippie drug era which went a long way to making recreational drugs popular with the pharmaceutical companies happily getting on board

            Just consider the volume of drugs consumed annually and ask yourself what percentage of people in your grocery store and on your roads are under the influence not to mention alcohol

            Saudi’s are cutting production to drive the price of gas up right before the midterm elections they want Republicans in there and Trump in there cause they can’t stand Biden

            The great sobering

            Equality guarantees equal opportunity equity guarantees equal results

            ”As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”     ANDREW CARNEGIE

            ”No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”   HERACLITUS

“Owning Others Feelings/Behaviors/Beliefs”

Ancient Secret art of reflection and the Crucible

This weeks notes unedited:

Ancient Secret art of reflection and the Crucible

‘Boat in water. No water boat.

Owning can occur as collusion or confrontation

Yet when people throw darts it naturally hurts

difficult particularly with family friends coworkers local national and international news

Retire inwardly, not react outwardly

The art of digestion

Two approaches to imperfection:

1] attack verbally

2] pitch in to help improve

The two types of memory one divine  [Smriti] the other the devil

Claire/Outlander:  “and if life is anything akin to God, i suppose that memory must be the devil”

How to [not to] think for yourself,,,

Momentum of mass mentality: everything from US Open to politics , human condition

“It’s no measure of good health, to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society”

⁠— J. Krishnamurti

Trying to bury it or push it away it’s just a form of denial… answer: the Light of awareness heals.  The knowing IS the doing. 

Simplistic versions of deep spiritual concepts may just have their value for example to be God-fearing or regarding the notion of Satan ”his greatest strength is that people cannot recognize him even when they see him”

Mount Soma, the Crucible: “It always seems impossible until it’s done” Nelson Mandela

Udana vayu:  prana that carries past life karma with it.  Energy between 4ttth and 6th chakras. . Refined and you can do anything

Current human condition:  Emotionally based twisted convoluted passionate perspectives of one and other.  or is it just a fishbowl that desperately needs to be cleaned?

all knowledge dwells within… just refine the awareness to find it… easier said than done

////

‘thank god we are not getting all the government we are paying for’  Will Rogers

typical political motivations? #1money, #2 staying out of jail

Student loan forgiveness estimate cost $1 trillion.  If you were given $1 million every single day since the birth of Christ he would have less than 3/4 of $1 trillion

Tantra and the Gordian Knot: Kitchen Table to Cosmos

As promised, here are this Weeks Thought Fragments

 Todays world: 

Gordian knot….easily solved “by finding an approach to the problem that renders the perceived constraints of the problem moot”

This is a time to endure but not to cower.  Everything will be fine for the world, but this is a time of transition.  if you can just take a step back, that is obvious.

someone responded saying, yes but hasn’t the world always been nutty like this.  i say no, not like this.  moral decay in every arena has become mainstream.  it won’t last long.  time of transition.  the pendulum will soon swing back to a more wholesome world.  just hang in there.

humanity needs to learn how to cultivate a healthy relationship with the internet.  a healthy relationship with hemlock is to not drink the tea…favor the good, avoid the bad.  very simple but yet the lowest common denominator is ruling these days

These days negativity is  the lowest common denominator

But wholesome living is inherent to life, simple. It will rise with Golden Age.  it is a joy to be simple.  negativity pulls at and spirls down, positivity uplifts and refreshes.  simple question: is life pulling you down, or is it uplifting you.  simple choice.  surf the internet or the tv channels and see the direction the world has gone.  but that is not where we will be going for long.

Todays marijuana/THC potency like heroine’ destroying todays youth

Bill Mar: from 1950 to present…  LGBTQ self-identification has gone for less than 1% to over 20% and increasing exponentially.

are they ‘protecting trans’ or turning kids away from straight?

BLM, defund police, promoting trans..  all the same thing really

one saint advised another about the world: “why go out in all that mud”  

many people come for spiritual teaching… clueless but think they ‘get it’

divide and conquer….woke.   lost to narratives

what wearing a cross means to people… alignment with wholesome.  Good/God

Christ = Chitanyaa

Chaitanya =  transcendant

Weaponizing justice…   ww2 hungarian woman said creeps in over time like a thief in the night

guilt by accusation

politicizing justice system

right left-handed tundra law justice  S/supreme court.. Natural Law or biased

Lenin: the worse the better…  see it as birthing pain to transition to their takeover

just like Bolshevik revolution: starve people to get then to overthrow Czar

spiritual escapism is no solution

Logic rationality and clear thinking is irrelevant rather emotion is what carries the day

law, justice, natural law, politics

said it would be easy to find supreme court leaker… so who is it? cover up? A justice involved?

yuga dependent law and justice..  

the caste system is misunderstood

nazi germany and legal system

watch movie: ‘judgment at nuremburg’ to see how it happened

“A man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all the doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false.” ― Benjamin Franklin, A Benjamin Franklin Reader: The Essential Writings of a Colonial Sage

how to unravel a twisted rubber band–very simple

The subtle Art of Conflict Resolution in Our Conflicted World

who started it doesn’t matter

from within a twisted perspective, your viewpoint looks straight

after calming down, it doesn’t matter any more

stay out of weeds in first place:  the art of relationship

once you step in it, it is hard to get it off your shoe

You don’t put out the fire by fanning the flame

Worst thing imaginable used to think others don’t believe you were that you could be wrong but ultimately it does not matter

Left handed tantra is addictive: tearing open 3rd eye, intoxication, indoctrination.  obstacles to spiritual growth.  Explosive results … destructive.  Blurs Vedic understanding

i get it syndrome

fish bowl

Vedic principles do not exist in isolation, they all appear at every point in creation.  universal

we will see a rise in right handed tantra

Moral fabric versus political correctness

Right/left tantra: do u prefer a rapid or gradual solution?  the ultimate distraction.. detonation vs blossoming.

can justify anything with the intellect

twisted.  From within the twist, it seems straight: Evolution is highly elusive.

Ideals, Politics, Peace, Harmony and All of Us

I sincerely believe that if we all sat together and discussed personal and political matters, we would realize that we all share the same ideals.  For example we all want peace, harmony, prosperity and justice for all.  Politics has just put a harsh and passionate spin on it all. 
As with so many levels and issues of life (interpersonal, community, political, philosophical, religious, even dietary etc.) the belief that seems to hold true is that the best way to win a disagreement is to demonize those with the opposing view.  “We are good; they are bad” seems to dominate over a mature, balanced, and reasonable joint effort to move life forward.  Paticularly in this election year and certainly regarding the current challenging jyotish, we do well to sidestep the politics and not get caught up in all the negativity.  Needless to say demonization breeds hatred which destroys so much of what we all long for.
Speaking of jyotish, Saturn and Jupiter are moving closer and closer together. They will be the closest around December 21, which is not good.  Also, Mars and Saturn are very powerful these days.  So for the next few months we do well to put extra attention on staying ‘out of the weeds’ of conflict and negativity.
A brief look at the history of humanity makes it clear that we have a lot to learn before we can live, let live and just get along.  Hatred and contempt is no way to run a world, a country, a state, city, community, or personal life.  Perfection dwells deep within the Kaivalya of the Transcendent.  We do well if we do not demand it of others…or of ourselves.  Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.
