Groundhog Day & Mercury Retrograde beginning

A time to be kind to ourselves and others, as Mercury gets into its loop-de-loop.


Groundhog Day

It’s Groundhog Day!

A very funny movie with a brilliantly spiritual twist 😀

Poor old Bill Murray living the same day over and over, until he got it right.
That meant developing a lighter, kinder mind; getting a sense of consideration for others; and basically wising up before he could move on and up into a life of his dreams. Because that’s how we get there, isn’t it.

Knowing this we can avoid repeating our mistakes, while creating a better space for ourselves instead.

Sense of Consideration

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso describes a sense of consideration as:

a very special inner wealth. It makes us become spiritually rich.”
He also says “it is like beautiful clothes that cause others to be attracted to us.

Mercury Retrograde

This week is cosmically relevant as well.
Mercury is in his retrograde pre-shadow phase right now. It actually goes retrograde February 6th 2014.

Scientifically this means that the little grey planet’s trajectile loops back on itself, before continuing in a more direct fashion across the night sky.

Astrologically the effect of  Mercury’s swing backwards is all about about re-thinking, renovation, reforming… you get the picture.

The traditional advice here, is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time.”

Talk Yourself into a Better 2014

How’s 2014 going for you?

Sorry, but now we’re into it; 2014 looks to be starting off as another challenging year for many.
Can mindful breathing with mantras, gathas or affirmations change this?

Blue Monday

Last Monday, 20th January, is known as ‘Blue Monday’.
According to the Bristol Observer, it’s the ‘gloomiest, most depressing day of the year‘.

So if this week didn’t have the best start, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Buddhist Sutra & Tantra on Vajrayogini Day

 

The universal compassion accomplished through the practice of Sutra teachings and the wisdom accomplished through the practice of Tantric teachings are like two wings of a bird.

Just as both wings are equally important for a bird to fly, so both Sutra and Tantra are equally important for practitioners seeking enlightenment.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Sutra

Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, a poem written by the 7th Century Buddhist master, Shantideva:

“A Bodhisattva is a friend of the world who, motivated by compassion, spontaneously seeks enlightenment to benefit all living beings.”

Awaken to 2014 with a New SuperMoon

Affirmations and qualities to promote
for the Capricorn Supermoon.

 New Super Moon !

The New Moon in Capricorn January 1st 2014 is a SuperMoon.
It’ll affect us all, regardless of star-sign.
* A SuperMoon is “
a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth.” 

“Capricorn is an earth element, cardinal mode of energy, so it is highly dynamic and has the potential to be excellent at management, organization and delegation.

The New Moon in Capricorn’s themes are letting go and paving the way for rebirth and aligning with quality and integrity…The climb to the top of the symbolic mountain may feel rough, yet imagine the new possibilities and view when you arrive at the peak.

With persistence and gentle discipline, all things may be achieved.”

Peaceful New Year & New Moon Blessings

It’s New year’s Eve !

What better time to have a peaceful party for peace.
Well, not a ‘party’ as such, more of a gathering of like minds in solidarity ;~)
Riding the waves of the energy shift towards a new dawn for Earth.

As the birds sing in the dawn,
so a new light dawns on planet Earth.
Solidarity
Planets connect in love and peace.

Asket, Pleiades, via Shanti
* (Solidarity – unity of feeling and action)

“Here,New Moon
in this moment –
there is a gathering
of kindred spirits,
and all there is to do
is to allow
a quieting down –
just a little,Stonehenge stars
just enough to hear
a soft whisper
of calm and of peace
and then ever so gently
taking one more step
just a little deeper,
here,Sun meditator
in the calmest part
of each of our hearts
as we gather
in the peace
of this place.”

✧ from Laurie’s Notes:
a gathering of kindred spirits, about finding the natural path to our hearts.

Nelson Mandala. A Hero of Our Time

I didn’t know Mandela had died until I read the tributes to him this morning. Just reading how much he was respected and loved says everything. Total homage to him.

He was dearly loved, and is an inspiration to us all.
That’s an important point, too.

Mandela Continues in Us

If we value Mandela’s impact on the world, the best thing we can do is
to try and adopt his good qualities as your own. If everyone who loves him took on even a fraction of Madiba’s qualities, the world would transform overnight.

~ from Kadampa Life, “I am the master of my fate” ~ a tribute to Nelson Mandela.

As the Idealistic Rebel says:

We need to pick up his words and ideals and carry on for him.
If all of us who believe in peace and freedom do one extra act of peace in his memory, he will never be forgotten.

~ from “The World has lost Nelson Mandela”

Mandela Quotes

 ✿ڿڰۣ

Reiki Heidi once asked on hereWhere are the people like him [MLK] today?? We still need heroes…

Maybe the answer to this question lies in Mandela’s

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”

After all, it is within all our capabilities to develop these, don’t you think…?

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God.

Your playing small 
Does not serve the world. 
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking 
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, 
As children do. 
We were born to make manifest 
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; 
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, 
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 
As we’re liberated from our own fear, 
Our presence automatically liberates others.

By Marianne Williamson
(often mis-attributed to Mandela, but I’m glad he made it famous.)

.¸¸.✧

I like that they’re smiling and singing in celebration of his life,
rather than sad and mourning his death.

November Peace Challenge: Love Thy Enemy

 Meredith

* Tears flow from hateful eyes too.

But I suspect our hearts, like flowers,

grow big and strong with the waters of loving-kindness.

Chill our words not our voice

It is rain that grows flowers, not ice

flowers in rain

“How cold is a heart
When it’s warmth that it seeks?”
Sting, Sister Moon

The Magic of Doctor Who is Our Magic Too

50th Doctor Who Celebrations Today !!

I’m not the only one totally stoked about tonight’s 50th episode, am I?
LoL, far from it 🙂

˚˙❤.¸¸.✧

Why We Love Doctor Who:

 The Doctor’s Magic!

No really, he is!
OK, sorry, not everybody’s into Doctor Who, I’ll grant you. But an awful lot of us are. Maybe that’s because he is not so unlike us? He’s flawed and looking for answers same as we are.
There is something quite magical about the Doctor, what he stands for, and his inimitable style, which is quite uplifting.

˚˙¨*•.¸¸.☆   “Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”
 G.K. Chesterton

 

Yayy, and for me the Doctor is the sci-fi version of a Buddhist mendicant; wandering the Universe, giving a lift to those he can.

Doctor's note

☆*•.¸¸.

As for us, we have limited choice what experiences our will ripen for us next. But we can help others, whilst creating the life we want to live.

 Travelling where we want to go 

What Sign?

Rory: “AH, the sign does say ‘Keep Out’.”
Doctor: “I see ‘keep out’ signs as suggestions, rather than actual orders. Like ‘dry clean only‘”.

The Doctor’s capricious and unpredictable, and bends the rules when needed.
He’s not anarchic, that wouldn’t particularly be of benefit to others. But the Doctor does think for himself, and uses his intuition and inner wisdom to guide him.

This way of playing means the Doctor normally wins the games he finds himself in. He knows and believes in himself, and the magic of things, allowing them to flow as one.
Even when he loses, the Doctor’s magic sparkles and sparks with an understanding that the Universe is a big place, where just about everything is possible.

It’s like with us. The path you’re on might not have turned out to be going in the direction you were planning; but stopping to admire the view gives you chance to evaluate it, use it,
or change it.

Time, Doctor Who, and CosmicLoti.com

post-milestone-200-!Hello people!
😆
Now that Cosmic Lottie’s officially 2 years old,
and has topped 200 posts;
(that’s her e-card from Word Press :~) her birthday gift is complete! So just FYI ~

the jasbaku.com domain expires today

¨*•.¸¸.❤ ☆

Well, ‘today’ begins and ends at different times depending where on the planet you happen to be. For me, it’s now 4.30am and a new day is just beginning (tho even the birds won’t start their dawn chorus for ages yet).

It’s possible that the sun will have risen (and set once or more times) by the time that you read this, but definite that my ‘now’ will be your past. * Though in that all three times are functioning things; past, present and future all exist in the present.

Which just goes to show that even with time being relative, it doesn’t really exist. It’s kind of ‘wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey‘ as the Doctor would say. “Our time is personal for us; there’s no such thing as absolute time.” Einstein via Prof Brian Cox (The Science of Doctor Who, YT)
Why wait to wake up when there’s so many intresting things to experience and share?

Fingers crossed, you won’t even notice the difference!

Talking about anniversaries and re-generation; this is the extended trailer for “The Day of the Doctor”, the 50th anniversary programme of Doctor Who. I am so looking forward to this!
Everyone excited?

Every one of us experiences many little deaths and re-births throughout our lives.
Each death is just another part of the journey.
Each re-birth brings with it imprints from the previous life; so best to make it worthwhile while it’s there.

“By each crime and every kindness we birth our future”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Never the spirit was born, the spirit shall cease to be never. Never was time it was not, end and beginning are dreams.
