Buddhist Sutra & Tantra on Vajrayogini Day

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

Although Devastating and Heartbreaking the levels still look Stunning.
Hopefully there is brightness ahead for all those suffering
.”
A. King

Just reading the Facebook posts (where I borrowed these quotes and some of these images from), it seems that that brightness and loving-kindness is already shining through people.
Like M. Perry said, “I think that it has brought many people together.

Empowering Ourselves

Because seeing things with a lighter mind makes us feel brighter.
Changing how things appear to us, changes what they are in the here and now.

Everything being merely an appearance to our mind empowers us to change the way things are.
We’re not the powerless victims of circumstance,
we’re in control.
We are co-creators of our own destiny.

☆ Photo Break: Somerset Flood Defence

Flood defences on a street in Somerset, with a handy gap for the water to go when high tide hits.

* Somerset is a county at the bottom of the UK.
It’s mostly rural, with close connections to the Bristol channel and twinned 
with the Atlantic Ocean.

☆  NEW!! Photo Break on Cosmic Loti

Images that are topical, thought provoking, funny, tragic, spiritual and a bit awesome (both in its original sense, and it’s current usage, meaning that it’s vaguely interesting).

Because our world exists as we perceive it, not as it is (in that it isn’t);
looking at it laterally can be quite helpful.

It’s high time I started sharing these little gems that are stored in my imagination, memory and hard dive. (They were saved for a rainy day LoL)

Let us know what you think 🙂

Clicking on them will probably take you to a parallel universe, and a related post. Or it might not….

that flood barrier didn’t work.

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.”

New Years Affirmations

New Years Prayer

“On this day, I will strive to see the peace that is everywhere and access the abundance of beauty and joy that lie in every moment.
It is the Eternal Now that I am after.

I will strive to be a magnet for powerful, positive, and miraculous truths, images, words, and music.
I will do everything in my power to clear my mind of the negative energies that have obfuscated my view and distorted my words and actions.
I will create a new paradigm that helps me to recognize only the good qualities in every person, place, and thing that composes my environment.
I will raise my energy and my light to the highest frequencies of love, generosity, charity, compassion, forgiveness, and truth.
I will fill my head with constructive thoughts and images that will help me to further my individual growth so that I can illuminate and inspire the lives of others.
