angel of death dream

DREAM:

observing the sky from a large floor to ceiling window.

in awe of a light formation in the early evening sky

it moved like swirls of wispy cloud-like substance

fast and spinning, up and down, in and out, and in a split second it’s GONE

Holy shit, what the fuck? 

I’m astonished

what the hell was that????

a moment later it reappeared in the same white cloud substance

but it was up close next to my window

it took the form of a SKELETON

not bones though, a cloud substance skeleton figure, animated as if talking to me

now I’m terror struck that this is happening right in front of my eyes

3-D LIFE:

Certain life-events yesterday may have contributed to my subconscious message to Self.

  1. Deeply moved by words I heard (credit and thanks to Global Witness, Derek’s You Tube dharma): “Everything we see in this world is a COPY of something that’s invisible, and a poor one at that”
  2. Driving along Route 17M, I have an unusually compelling impulse to look at my mileage (I never do this) and the number is 11, 144.
  3. Life is becoming more challenging by the moment for personal and family relations and requiring my most mature spiritual understanding to discern the events.
  4. Halloween really is about ghosts LOL

So how is God revealing Itself to Myself through this dream?

  • Don’t take things so damn seriously?
  • Accept the impermanence of EVERYTHING with a lighter heart?
  • Remember that my most important work here is to SEE THROUGH the bullshit and always look toward the TRUTH?
  • Understand that death is not at all what we’ve been programmed to believe?
  • Life’s potentiality is limitless in form?

Suggestions are welcome …….. in love and light.

Emptiness and Luminosity

Seven days of silence, a retreat lead by Adyashanti entitled, “The Embodiment of Insight”.

This was an opportunity to absorb so many pearls of wisdom evoked from the daily dharma talks, the six meditation sittings per day, the beautiful natural surroundings, and 270 beings sharing 3 meals per day, observing together both the stillness and the movement – in total Silence.

Some Pearls of wisdom worth sharing:

Always look inward to the depth of intuitive knowing. The learning comes from what’s evoked within you. The teacher should never actually have an answer to your question.

We are always Being, always Becoming.

Truth is transcendent of the opposites, but can express itself through it.

We’re all attracted to the light of the fire, but unaware of the vast open space around us.

When you meditate, Sit Tall, but let the breath be soft and easy.

Recognize that the dynamic pull of the unknown (God) is not only One Way. It goes both ways. IT needs us as much as we need IT.

There is no separation. The other side of joy is sorrow. The other side of suffering is peace. The other side of light is dark. One will always contain the other.

In the Zen tradition, nothing is explained. It is left to your own experience. I imagine that is why this teacher, Adyashanti, became such a master of dialogue and imagery, to give our rational mind something to understand. 

Meditation toolbox: Look at your thoughts with Kindness, Gentleness, Compassion.

How to go ‘all the way’ through to liberation? Never deny the truth of what you actually and always are.

In the eye of the hurricane: the still point is not separate from the chaos.

BE STILL LIKE A HUMMINGBIRD, (Henry Miller): A title that’s a perfect analogy for the paradox of life.

Deep spirituality begins when we come to realize we don’t know.

This life is going to go by in a flash. Do something for yourself; Take one moment, step back, take a breath, and take it all in. 

Namaste my fellow beings. In deep love I share these simple realizations.

a humble and contrite heart

after seeing mom yesterday, feeding her what little morsels of dinner she could eat, she said to me, “I’m afraid of what’s going to happen to me”

my heart broken for her suffering, all that came to me were the words that felt true:

“do you remember your faith? do you remember your connection to God? when you feel anxious, remember that connection. it is always there with you”

I don’t know if she heard a word or received that, but I gave it for it was all I had

This morning, I had the Grace of listening to a talk by Derek at Global Witness that served me deeply today. One of the truths that he makes to clear is that there’s so much more to what we “see” in this world, it is more than what we think we know.

This is only a short excerpt of the hour long discussion:

“What do you have that is valuable?

Do you love really well?

What is your gift, no matter how small?

How do you invest it?

Take what little you have and invest it in others.

If all you do all day is to encourage people to seek who they are, you are investing your courage, you’re investing what little you’ve been given.

To those who have been given, more will be given.so you have a responsibility to care for the things you have.

Speaking of this ascension:

The Ascent is the gift of Christ, which is humility of heart:

The acceptable sacrifice is a contrite heart

You just give all of this world away.

This is my posture all the time: Head down, hands out, I’ve got nothing.

And every single day, every time I do that, he puts something in my hands.

Every single day I come to him with that humble and contrite heart, he gives me something else, and never are they my possessions, they are always His.

That’s why you don’t take those things in vein like his name. You don’t take things to be your own because nothing is yours, all of it is ours.

These truths are already in you. You once knew them and they have been removed. You knew them because they are the blueprint of mankind.

The return of ‘the son of man’ is the return of that blueprint within you.

Christ is Everywhere but Nowhere. The father is everywhere but nowhere. It cannot be in a single place if it covers all places.”

the truth is timeless

“When you feed yourself food for the mind, be careful where you eat.

There’s very little today on television that’s wholesome, especially with all the symbolism behind it. But If you will learn this symbolism, that’s passed down from Mercury and Hermetics here, and alchemy, then that magic no longer works on you. When you see how the trick is done, its no longer a trick, its no longer magic, it just becomes a slight of hand.

That word sign is a LOGO. In the beginning was the word; that word is LOGO. The symbols, the signs.

That’s why I keep telling you, LEARN THEM, LEARN THEM, LEARN THEM. You won’t ever understand anything you “see” until you understand the meanings behind these symbols, and it’s so in depth, it’s something a person must do for themselves. You keep training yourself until it becomes second nature.

Mastering a thing. Keep doing it until you perfect it. (Kung Fu)

You keep meditating.

You keep learning the symbology.

And you keep on keepin’ on.

To be a wise, ascended master, you must know all SIGNS”

Lavette Hawkins

 

A classic kick ass song …..  still true:

 

Ajna

“You’re the spirit in the magic circle
You’re the yoke in the egg
And you have to come out of yourself
And you do that through the pineal gland

I don’t want to get involved in politics
I want to teach astrology and alchemy because to me that is the greatest gift I can give you because it’s the tools that help empower you on a personal level.
The bible is a friggen alchemy and astrology book that tells you how to live in this world!
How to take up your cross, understand who you are, and follow the lamb wherever he goes;
MEDITATION, going within.
When you walk in the Kingdom, you realize that sun outside is just like a light in my closet.
Y’all go commit that random act of kindness……”

A Compromise Can Get You Compromised, Lavette Hawkins

 

“The closing of our pineal gland …..

It doesn’t just dumb us down

it limits our access to our higher senses

So we only have this five-sense version of reality

But there are a lot of other higher senses
