THE WORD OF THE DAY IS  FORGIVENESS

MESSAGE OF WISDOM

“Forgiveness is the act of accepting.  It is the act of accepting fully all parts of one’s self;
The dance of the light and shadow within self; the act of acknowledging our humanness. 
Unless we have forgiven all judgments we have made, all thoughts that are less than or better than, all of the guilt and shame-then-and only then, can we come into our true nature as unconditionally loving Divine Beings.” 

-James

The Word of the Day

THE WORD OF THE DAY IS IMPERMANENCE

Message of Wisdom

 

“Suffering is not inherent in the world of impermanence; suffering arises when we cling.

When clinging disappears,
impermanence no longer gives rise to suffering. The solution to suffering, then, is to end clinging, not to try to escape from the transient world.”

-Buddha

The Word of the Day

THE WORD OF THE DAY IS GUIDANCE

Message of Wisdom

“As crazy as it may sound pain (as with most of our life) is divinely guided. It is a messenger for us to pay attention, to be “present-centered” and neutral so that we can
see and feel the lessons trying to come through that bring us closer to our loving and Divine self.    Pain when accepted instead of rejected can become a profoundly compassionate and cathartic catalyst for growth.”

Why the Peacock Solution?

Peacock MAY 2013 Phyllis' BioDo you know what it feels like to be loved unconditionally?

To have someone see the beauty of your soul the moment they meet you?

Not the color of your skin or judge you because you’re too fat or too thin.

Poor or rich.

Educated…uneducated.

Male or female.

Do you know what it feels like to have someone simply love you…just YOU?

With no agenda?

Much like many of you…I have moved through many of life’s challenges.

 A painful divorce.

The death of my mother and father.

3 jobs I loved disappearing into the chaos of corporate take overs.

The sudden death of my sister.

Boom….Boom….one thing after the other!

Reeling with how fast my life was changing.

A Message of Love

A Message of Love

By James Recore

Hello Everyone,

The following is a recent synopsis of thoughts, meditations and dreams I have had.  I share this with you and hope that it may also resonate with you.        

James

 

You are to be examples of Love.

Be reminded to speak up in the face of judgment; speak up in the face of anger; speak up in the face of hatred. This is not a time for silence.
Be risk takers, and speak compassionately in your forthrightness.

You are to be examples of Love.

Christ Consciousness resides in your heart, and therefore there is never anything to fear, least of all, the unknown. Infinite love is ever with you.

You are beings of peace, love, and gentleness. If you are not peaceful, loving and gentle, then you are condoning all that is not peaceful, not gentle, not loving.
Treat all whom you encounter with peace, love and gentleness no matter how much hatred, anger, or imbalance that may be present.

A way to live love:

Honor every living thing

Honor everyone’s existence and right to exist

Love respectfully and live love, speak love and hear love

Do so with joy and compassion

If someone asks for $5 then give them $10

If someone asks for five minutes of your time, give them fifteen

Keep your hearts open every moment of every day.

Do not live in fear of your neighbor, brother, sister, or stranger.  You are your neighbor’s, brother’s, sister’s, stranger’s keeper.

Risk being the Divine Presence that you are in every moment of every day.

Here is how you may make a difference and have purpose:

When you feel you can’t love anymore, love some more!

When you feel you can’t go on, take one more step!

When you feel your heart’s unable to love anymore, then hold and embrace love for yourself; for all that you are, for all that you know yourself to be.
Never forget from whence you came – from divinity:

My prayer is this.  May this also be your prayer:

If you need me to carry you, I shall carry you;

If you need me to walk beside you, I shall walk beside you;

If you need me to walk in front of you, I shall walk in front of you;

If you need me to walk behind you, I shall walk behind you.

You are to be examples of Love. This is your nature, your essence, your service, your purpose.

Accepting Our Inner Universe

Accepting Our Inner Universe
By Brenda Recore

Ever since I was a young child, I’ve been captivated by the sky – be it the clouds by day or the stars by night.
While most four years olds were playing in the park on the monkey bars and slides, I was lying in the grass watching the formation of the “cloud people” ( as I named them) while yearning to remember why I wasn’t floating above instead of laying below.
As I grew older, my fascination with the earthly heavens only increased.
It was further enhanced by a spiritual quest which included spiritual teachers and shamans, much self-growth, miraculous healings, visitations to sacred earth sites, self-growth, huge life changes, and once again, did I mention self-growth? A never-ending evolution of consciousness – often magical, always expansive, and not always easy- especially when confronting personal fears, conventional belief systems, and pesky attachments to ego outcomes and materiality.

My life still reflects that magnetic pull towards the sky and stars, but now I understand it to be not outside of me, but an infinite spiritual universe preciously held within me. As Master Jesus affirmed 2000 yrs ago in his sacred teachings, “The Kingdom of Heaven lies within you.”

As Divine star beings of light, it is my belief that each of us contain within our physical form the fullness of Nature’s consciousness – mineral, plant, animal, and elemental. As we create a daily practice of listening to our Divine self for guidance while consistently transforming personal fears and behavioral patterns, we naturally become a Divine alchemist.

The world then takes on a clarity where problems loom less overwhelming and compassion is deepened because we are observing ourselves from a different vantage point ( perhaps looking out from the stars rather than up to them)? Being a neutral observer, it is easier to watch one’s emotional triggers/reactions with more forgiveness, neutrality, and grace.

Furthermore, any personal ego stories or physical dis-eases can be gently released through the recognition that there really is no solid matter to heal but only fields of consciousness to shift.

I’ve often reflected that if indeed we are each starseeds of the spiritual universe and inherently contain all it’s vitamins, minerals and elements then by logic we also contain grids of light as well. If this premise is true ( which I believe it to be) then our very physical, bodily form can offer through conscious “thought” the opportunity to transform even nature itself. 

For example, take fault-lines triggering earthquakes. I sincerely believe as one compassionately forgives their own “faults” and human mistakes, releases regret/shame, and changes a behavior pattern then the earth  indeed is blessed. Imagine the impact of thousands of conscious individuals healing their “supposed” faults. The effect ( as in the 100th Monkey Theory) would be a critical mass shifting collective consciousness – and quite possibly, the disappearance of earthquakes from our planet.

This is the potential power of healing our own grids of consciousness – the earth, too, will heal. What IS required to heal our inner grids? Personally, I’ve found it requires a daily awareness and surrender of my personal ego as well as a humble willingness to follow the hand of Divine guidance.  I also ALWAYS need to remind myself to stop “doing” and “just be” so that my Higher Self is free to get on with its mission.

As I’ve so loved the “cloud people” and the stars throughout my life, I also grasp and appreciate the profound significance of the song Bette Midler made famous years ago called “From a Distance”. Now more than ever, we all need to observe the divine heart of one another from a heavenly vantage point.
We are brilliant expressions of the Universe and our Earth is a sacred reflection of Mother Nature wherein each of us are given the opportunity to evolve, create, and contribute.

For me, this deepening understanding fuels my daily intention to align “inner unity and harmony” with an outer expression of love, peace, balance, and gratitude.

 

Gratitude in the Midst of Crisis

Gratitude in the Midst of Crisis

By Florence

 

 

As I sit here in what I call a state of funk I am wondering what it is that is wreaking havoc with my sense of balance.
I could name several things that could be impacting me from a friends long time struggles with her health or the state of my siblings physical demise or could it be my own fears of what could be problems too numerous and too self serving to count. Most of these potential problems, if not all , won’t even come to fruition.

All of this rumbling around in my head when I truly have so much to be grateful for, wanting to wake up every morning with a giant smile, bounce out of bed and take on the day in gratitude.  And often I do just that but often I do not.

The world all around us seems in crises full of hatred and violence but it’s also full of so much love and kindness.
Its very easy to fall into the trap of reading the headlines or constantly keeping up with the news.
You can be completely overwhelmed by it all and wonder how you can make a difference and how you can keep positive in your own life.

I find the days that life is joyful for me is when I am present and when each encounter has a specialness to it.  That could be a ten second exchange or five minutes or…
One of my happiest days recently was one in which every person I came in contact with we had a fun or uplifting impact on each other. It was a magical day and in one case it was merely making someone smile. Listening to each other and sharing when we do it genuinely truly reveals we are all so connected.

I spend a lot of time alone which is very healing and restorative for me but I can also get in my own way.  Meditation has been a blessing and I am thankful I have made it a part of my every day life. It helps stop that “chatter” in my head.

In this moment I am in gratitude and when I am not, I am throwing away precious moments of my life this time around and In truth we don’t know how many more
moments we have left.

The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room
By Randy Florence

I never pictured my Wife like this.   Ever.

Oh, sure, there’s those macabre thoughts of traffic accidents, or “what if she got sick”. I don’t know, is that normal? Does everyone have those thoughts? But, never like this. Watching her in her hospital bed, tubes hooked up, nurses coming in and out. I’m trying to act brave for her, and for myself.

In my own personal space, watching her in the bed, it seems like I’m the only one dealing with pain at the time. I see the fear in her eyes and I just want to make it right. Assure her with more than just the dumb words “everything’s going to be ok”.

Then I go into the waiting room and sit down, my eyes looking at the floor, oblivious to the scene around me. After a few minutes, I look up…..and look at the faces in the room.

And the thought comes to me.

Everyone is dealing with something.

At the moment, to them, it must have seemed they were the only ones dealing with pain.

We are all in the same room, going through something at the same time but feeling so alone.

Looking around, it’s as though each person is in their own little bubble. Their thoughts, their fears…all different, but so much the same.

Have you heard “Everything’s going to be fine, he will be out soon”? Or…..”I’m sorry, there’s nothing we can do”.

Look up. Look over here. I want you to know. I get it, I understand.

And whatever you’re dealing with, I’m here with you. I don’t know how serious your loved one’s problem is. I don’t know how long you’ve been dealing with it or if this is something sudden. I don’t know how it will end up.

But I know we’re in this together. I know that our energies are connected. I can see in your face that a little more love would help.

It’s ok. You are loved. Your joy, your pain….I feel it. It’s good that I feel it. It’s proof that we’re in this together.

I go back to the room and see her laying there. I know she will be better.

I don’t know if your loved one will be better.

But I know we’re together, you and I.   

All of us.

Why A Spiritual Teacher?

Why A Spiritual Teacher?

PART ONE

Sacred Hands TwoI used to live life as though it would go on forever — never ending.

When I see people I love, I now remember that perhaps this may be the last time I see their face.

I ask myself  “Are you truly present when you are with everyone you meet?”

“Are you simultaneously enjoying the moment while being aware that it is sacred because it will never happen again?

Life continues to evolve.  Yet it is impermanent.   A paradox….

I am finding that the practice of living in the present with all of the uncertainties of life, takes courage.

The courage to be aware of the fragility of life while embracing every moment as though it is the last.

Humanity appears to be experiencing one of the most challenging times on our planet,
making a spiritual teacher to guide us at this pivotal time a PROFOUND gift.

In truth, a spiritual teacher appears in our lives by our personal silent invitation.

I was conscious ( as many are) of the specific time when through prayer, I asked for the appearance of a spiritual teacher.

With others often the invitation is more an unconscious one.

When I met James, my spiritual teacher, I intuitively knew he was the sacred presence

I had been asking for to guide my spiritual journey.

There was an immediate trust with his presence.

I looked into his eyes and saw the light of infinite wisdom.

JJ's Eyes Only New Edit

Thankfully, and ironically he appeared at the most challenging time in my life.

*See “Why the Peacock Solution.”

He has since graced my life with many scared gifts –physical healings, compassionate blessings for family and friends, harmony with difficult relationships, providing peace through my grief over loved ones passing on and consistently translating ancient teachings into practical application for my everyday life.

During the past few months, I have read two extraordinary books that have deeply strengthened my devotion and renewed my commitment to this spiritual journey.

“The Autobiography of a Yogi”, the compelling story of Paramhansa Yogananda’s path to self mastery and “The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita”, an extraordinary book of deep ancient wisdom written by one of Yogananda’s few remaining direct disciples Swami Kriyananda.

“The Autobiography of a Yogi” weaves the story of Yogananda’s sacred experiences with his own spiritual teacher Swami Sri Yukteswar. These experiences and the feelings they evoked reminded me of my journey with James.  This personal insight has been transformative for me, confirming how profoundly blessed my life has been and continues to be through the grace and patience of a gifted and compassionate teacher.

Yogananda shares his love of teaching in nature and this reminded me of the incredible times in Sedona when an intimate group of students would arise early morning and hike with James, sit with him during lunch and have spiritual talks by the creek for hours.

These were magical days for me hearing the teachings about our Oneness with nature, seeing images of the “ancient ones” in the face of a mountain as well as intuitively learning to feel the energy and vibration of the land, the significance of a heart rock found along the trail, and ceremonies honoring the four directions of the earth.

We experienced so many miraculous moments and healings.

Another parallel that surfaced throughout “The Autobiography of a Yogi” was the forthrightness of Yogananda’s teacher Swami Sri Yukteswar, while addressing the “ego”  personality of his students.

It was clearly understood in his culture that being forthright with a student was the sacred responsibility of an authentic spiritual teacher.

The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita” states “Very few human beings are ready for the highest spiritual blessing: the help of a true spiritual teacher. That all human beings need whatever help they can get, however, is surely very evident to anyone but the most errant egotist.”

I was mesmerized reading Yogananda’s biography. It helped me to completely understand why forthrightness has been one of the greatest and most loving gifts I’ve experienced with my own teacher.

In the beginning of our spiritual work together I had many moments of anger and frustration with myself as James forthrightly addressed my “ego” during a session.  Sometimes when feeling tears with my ” imagined victimization” these emotions helped me to acknowledge and heal deep seeded issues which I was completely unaware of before working with him.  However, looking into his eyes during those moments I always had a knowingness that I was experiencing a healing process. The more I allowed the power of his love to pierce my ego, unnecessary suffering was dissolved.

After the storm of emotions cleared, the process of surrendering in meditative silence brought feelings of gratitude and freedom that is indescribable.

How many people in your life love you enough to tell you the truth?

The truth about your shadow AND your light so that you can be assisted in your conscious growth and evolution?

Is there a willingness  to accept this deepest form of love into your heart?

To take the risk to prioritize your life journey with the intention of Self Realization and Self Acceptance?

Will you have the courage to begin the journey of awakening when you recognize your spiritual teacher or will you walk away?

The truth is, there is no right or wrong answer to these questions.

It’s simply a choice.

My truth is that I know I am a better person and my life is happier and deeply enriched because of my spiritual work with James.

I also realize that I am not alone and I am loved.

I know who will take my hand when the time comes and walk beside me through the veil to the other side.

For me, with a heart overflowing with love and gratitude, I choose to continue my journey of awakening, fully appreciating The Gita’s advice in “accepting the highest spiritual blessing: the help of a true spiritual teacher.”

The choice is yours.  Which path will you choose?

I look forward to hearing your comments.

In Part Two of  “Why a Spiritual Teacher?”   I will continue to share experiences about my journey with my teacher and new insights from “The Autobiography of a Yogi” and “The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita.”

With folded hands,

Phyllis
