Tonight is Dedicated to…

This piece was originally written about a group World Peace Meditation that was dedicated to our soul family around the globe.  It went something like this:

Tonight’s World Peace Meditation is Dedicated to…

To all those who seek the deepest peace and the greatest love in life,

To those who simply seek to know what is truth and what is illusion,

To those who know they are not being true to themselves and are moved to live with greater authenticity and integrity,

To those who are aware that this world is on the edge of a dramatic and profound shift and sense they have a significant role to play,

To those who know a Higher Power is now at work in the world and hear the subtle call of that Power to be present and available,

To those who simply wish to know exactly who they are and why on earth they are here.

It is also for all the souls and all the aspects of nature that are suffering, as well as for the souls who suffer because of witnessing the suffering.  For when one sees people, including children, suffering tremendous pain at the hands of others, our sense of injustice is triggered, often accompanied by what many would call “righteous anger”, and perhaps even hatred for the oppressor.

In the process, these negative feelings create more suffering for ourselves and those around us.  This becomes a habit, an inner pattern that is repeated, not only when we witness global strife, but also when someone at home, or at work, or in our place of worship, or on the street does something we consider unjust, the same button is pushed, and the same pattern of outrage, fear, resistance, anger, or hatred emerges.

What is wrong with this picture? What is missing here? What have we forgotten? What have we failed to see or understand?

A deep understanding of the laws of action and reaction (karma) assures us that whatever we give, will eventually return to us, and whatever happens to us is the result of our actions finding their way back to us.

When this understanding is integrating into our awareness as we watch apparent injustices in the world, it defuses our outrage, lessening the pain.  It’s not that we sit passively and allow people to inflict suffering upon ourselves or others, but it helps us to see that the greatest or highest contribution that we can make, to both the victim and the persecutor, is to help them remember who they are and help them rise above the anger and fear towards each other.  In this way, we help them to liberate themselves from a kind of energy exchange that has been going on for centuries.  However, before we can do this for others, we must do it for ourselves.

Credit goes to Mike George for bringing much of this to my attention in one of his many books on Meditation and Consciousness.  Thank you Brother Mike for your clarity!

Listen From the Inside

 Sitting here thinking of you, the reader,  I realize how it has taken years of pondering issues, problems, and dilemmas to get to a point of knowing. This kind of knowing goes far beyond the twin shadows of doubt and delusion. For so long, I wondered if I  had something to say worth the time it takes to write it down and worth the time it takes you to read it.  For so long, as well, I’ve known that I can write and that I love to write.  For just as long, I wondered what is it that I want to say and what do I dare say in these times?

The next hurdle to writing that I faced was: WHO will LISTEN, really listen from the INSIDE???  Several years ago, while living here on Kauai, I heard the answer.

“Many will listen,  many will hear, will resonate, and find their own goodness and spiritual power through your courage to write and share.

Souls with their own unspoken messages, with their own questions banging on the door of their consciousness, gasping to be heard, will listen and feel happy to hear another soul, voicing from the deep!  Souls, immersed in their own struggles and challenges, will sense a life-giving voice, that acknowledges who they are.

As I continued to listen from the inside, I heard more:

“THIS IS THE WAY INTO YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL TREASURE.”  Share the jewels of knowledge you have been ever so fortunate to receive.  For the more you share, the greater your fortune.  Churn the knowledge and directions given freely by the “Knowledge-Full  One”, so they may feed your intellect and make it divine.  Jump start others’ intellects so they may become golden, as well.

This life is all about awareness.  Where your awareness goes, your intellect either thrives or withers.  The Jefferson Airplane, rock stars of the sixties, were approaching this truth when they sang: “Feed Your Head”.  Their reference was to hallucinogenics, plant medicines, and the like.  What I’m writing about, dear friend,  is a very different calling.  This requires a different “out of the body” experience.  This is about surrendering “normal”, everyday body consciousness and going beyond the limitation of the senses, to know soul consciousness, our original birthright. 

     This is powerful medicine~ divine medicine for souls trapped in the material experience, an antidote for the growing number of insomniacs of the world, a clear passage for all who have ever been bound by conflicting emotions, “shoulds  and shouldn’ts”, weakening thoughts, obsessions, addictions, or compulsions.  It is for the spiritually-hungry beings who need an infusion of nectar to open the doorway into matters of their own soul, to realize and emerge their true nature,  to activate their true awareness, and forge their own destiny!

Yet, sometimes the best thing, in matters of the soul, is to say nothing.  I’ve learned that the best practice is to give others an experience, an experience that will stay with them for a long time and give them a sense of authority, of self-sovereignty, of knowing.

For truly it is only Truth that can awaken the slumbering soul; however, according to David Hawkins, MD, PH.D.  doctor, psychiatrist turned mystic, who has done extensive research in the fields of human development and enlightenment, only 22% of the present population will resonate with or recognize the truth when they are exposed to it!!!

Yet, look around and see it IS the time.  It is ‘now or never’ for the souls of the world to be filled to overflowing with truth.

As I listened from the inside, I heard more: the world is awaiting the preciousness of your smile and the wisdom of your heart. Your part is that of the actor who loves truth and walks onto the stage of life and becomes it. Share the truth… freely, but tactfully. Distribute the nectar and the jewels.

The first and foremost jewel for souls is to know: who You are… who you are beyond your present name, gender, occupation, relationships, family, and even, beyond your own  body.

You are so much more than all you see. You have been brainwashed into thinking that “seeing is believing” and that this is all there is.  Though you have attached your heart to all that you see, there is still hope to experience the greater you, the Magical You, the Higher Self, the Great Soul that you are.

You may enjoy beginning with this simple experiment using your”power of thought”.

As Einstein said: “the world we have created is a product of our thinking, it cannot be changed without changing the thinking that created it.”

In this contemplative experiment, you are invited to perceive yourself and others differently.  Here goes:

“I  am an amazing prince or princess from a civilization of divine beings of light~ angelic beings~.  I have come into this physical dimension to find my brothers and sisters, who are also angelic beings of light.  They lost their when their wings were cut by the evils of ego, attachment, greed, anger, and lust.  They tried to substitute the transitory passions of material existence for the eternal bliss of the spirit.  They confused this physical dimension with their true Home in the dimension of light.

I’m on a mission to retrieve them from the clutches of Maya, the powerful force of illusion, which has caused so many souls to lose sight of another reality.  I am focused and full of memories of our true identity as powerful, eternal, masterful beings of light, beloved children of the Supreme Being, the One who is calling us back Home.”

As these seed thoughts are received into the ground of you, the soul, you begin the liberation process. As you resonate to the truth behind this vision,  ask yourself if you are willing to  live a life that goes beyond the limitations of the five senses.  Ask yourself if you would like to become aware of yourself as a being of light who has simply put on a costume made of matter in order to fulfill your earthly role.

This process of waking up from body consciousness to soul consciousness, from forgetfulness to remembrance is the practice of  Raja Yoga Meditation of India, the most ancient form of yoga/union, as taught and practised by the Brahma Kumariis of Mt. Abu.  At the present time, this ancient practice of remembrance has spread around the globe.

This is a truly rewarding process; however, please remember that patience is a virtue, especially when shown to yourself.  Know that this  journey, this pilgrimage of a thousand miles begins with one step, with one call.   And that with each step you take, the Divine Being of Light will take a thousand steps to meet you and assist you.

My pure wish is that your way always be blessed and that you may you reach your ultimate destination with ease.  May you journey with happiness and honor!

To learn more about the practice of Raja Yoga Meditation and to step into greater freedom and awareness, you are welcome to call me @ 808-639-9436. All meditations and classes offered are free.

I’ve been a practitioner and teacher of this wonderful practice of inner yoga, a yoga without asanas, a yoga which brings the soul into union with the Divine for almost 9 years. I’ve just returned from my 5th journey to Mt. Abu, Rajasthan where the World Spiritual University of the Braham Kumariis is located.  I have come to appreciate that this ancient practice is meant for these times.  It is for all souls, all faiths, and all walks of life.  Take just a  drop full, a cupful, or come merge in the Ocean.  It is your call!  I am here to be of service.

Wishing You Many Blessings of Love, Light, and Peace,

Shivalaya

p.s. I’m available in person on Kauai or on ‘Facetime’ if you are anywhere else on the globe.

Let the Heart Be Constant

Green Light Blast

7/11/2014

My Heart Constantly Overflows,

Fed by the Lord of Nectar.

I, the soul, am drawn by the Magnet of Constant Love and Happiness,

Away from this sorrow-drenched world.

I remember the Home…Land of Silence, Nirvana.

My happiness is constant

For my self-respect is a sparkling diamond, ever stable.

I spread these waves of happiness to all souls.

I, the soul, am up above close to my Beloved, the One to whom I belong.

The One beckons me to Remember and Remain

Under the beautiful canopy of Light

He has put around me.

As I remember the One,

I receive purifying rays of Light and Love

That fill me to overflowing.

When you concentrate on the Source of Goodness, Hope and Mercy,

You will go out and touch others with your presence, without saying a word.

You are unlimited!

Love is Life.

Love flows out to meet each moment.

There is a rippling of continuity that makes the NOW endless ….

Endlessly present and present and present…

A flow of unbroken consciousness that takes you Home.

On the beam of Remembrance-your Lifeline

Your unbroken fortune is to know the beginning, the middle, and the end

Continually flowing into forever.

Knowledgable, unwavering,

Long-lost but now found,

In the presence of ONE.

Behold Yourself There,

Know True Love,

See for yourself the Truth.

There is a Guide, a Teacher, and a Parent who truly cares for you.

Remember that ONE

Forget all the rest.

In this awareness there is only purity, love, and bliss.

Share it,

Be it,

Constantly.
