I Offer You A Beautiful Meditation

I offer you a beautiful meditation

 

 

When I attended the Ayahuasca sessions in Mexico with the Church of Santo Daime, they talked about the “Second Coming of the Christ,” (see Counterpoint to Reality http://harmonologybook.com/about-the-book/) a phrase often heard in fundamentalist circles. Not being an adherent to any organized religion nor a reader of the Bible, I tend to shun from terms and ideas such as that. But, the Santo Daime viewed the “Second Coming” as a process wherein one discovers, and then pursues the inner path to the heart––the seat of Universal Supreme Intelligence: a process that aligns the brain to the spirit. To me, that phrase finally made sense.

 

There has been a lot of talk in the medical research field that suggests that the heart functions similar to the brain, acting as a second source of intelligence. http://hubpages.com/education/your-second-brain-is-in-your-heart I think that research is a bit late in that the ancient Chinese and Indian philosophers were on to the idea many centuries ago.

 

The important concept here is that you can, and do have a choice as to how you respond to your universe. You can continue to only use your rational brain, located in your cranium (I think you’ll agree that that way of thinking has caused you enough trouble in life), or you can make the shift to the heart center, wherein lies the source of your intuitions, insights as well as your true intellect. Deep compassion for your fellow human, along with unending love flow from this center.

 

When one meets chaos and confrontation in life: something no one is exempt from, the choice always presents itself: think from the brain, or move to the heart. When you can move to the heart and stay there permanently you have achieved your “Second Coming of Christ.” You have gained “Christ Consciousness”.

 

If ever there were a purpose to your existence, that move, on a permanent level, would be it. You then will have beaten the revolving wheel of life and have achieved the ultimate goal––the merging of self with Self. The Esoteric Tradition refers to that as the “Slaying of the Dragon.”

 

I offer you a beautiful meditation––or thought to ponder. Please feel free to substitute the word God, Jesus and Christ with whatever other names you are comfortable with and that resonate with your beliefs.

 

“Just as Jesus prepared Himself to enter Jerusalem for the last time,

I reflect on those times when I arrived at a critical place in my life path.

There is always a choice – and, like the Wayshower, I focus upon that seed deep within me, speaking to every cell of my being, assuring that I can move beyond this great challenge, and rise to victory.

Even when I sit on that donkey, those emotions that want to tell me,

“I can’t…It’s impossible…It’s too tough,” I know that in the midst of the crowd is my Victor, The Christ that lives within me.

Thank You, God, for Your gift of Life and for Your precious example in the life of Jesus Christ.

Amen”

Caring for the blooms in the Spring will bring bounty in the Fall

Wu Wei’s book, I Ching Life, states right in the beginning, “The concept upon which this book is written is that the universe is alive and aware.” He further states, “The information in this book has been set forth with one goal: to enable you to lead a better, fuller, easier, more productive life, free from the pitfalls that may have earlier beset your path.”

 

In Harmonology, I stated that the ideas contained herein have proven to be most accurate unless, of course, there is baggage brought into the relationship. In a sense, your relationship is your universe––alive and aware. And your goal is to be “free from the pitfalls that may have earlier beset your path.”

 

“Relationships require complete integrity. The first time we lie or are untrue to the person with whom we share a relationship, we condemn ourselves and our partner to a second class relationship.” Wu Wei, pg79 All of the fortuitous interval combinations in the musical/ relationship scale will become a moot point when the trust of one partner fails and the second class level begins to take command.

 

The great wisdom contained in Wu Wei’s little book augments and enhances the concepts and focus of Harmonology. He further states, “Very few relationships come to us exactly as we want them, but, with proper care, we can shape them into enduring pillars of strength and beauty within which great joy can be experienced and great deeds can be accomplished.”

 

It’s one thing to be born in a certain birth month, and then fall into a relationship with someone in a different month––expecting to live happily ever after. Yet, it’s quite another to aspire to be honest, true and creative within that structure so that it develops into a “better, fuller, easier, more productive life for both.”

 

Relationships are hard work. Whether you are in a dissonant and distant ½ step interval or an easy going major 3rd ––or better still, a unison––there are no easy ways through it without hard work. After all, “A relationship is like a garden. To create a condition that will cause our plants to thrive, we must weed, water, fertilize, communicate with, and care for the plants in our garden.” Wu Wei, pg 65

 

Accept and embrace the interval you form with your lover. But, remember to nurture that garden so that the blooms in the Spring will bring bounty in the Fall.
