There is an old Chinese curse which runs ‘May you live in interesting times’! We are certainly there at the moment and all the indication is that things could get very ‘interesting’ before they get better. Although we talk a lot about individual energy there is a universal energy that is unfolding too. This is the big picture referred to in the title of this post. Our own search is intimately bound up with the the world’s current situation. At a micro and macro level the same process is going on.
If you are interested in Energy Healing at all levels then you need to understand what is happening at a global level. This article really gives a flavour of what is going on and may help you to get a grasp on what is happening worldwide at the moment…..
One of my favourite films is called ‘The Silent Flute’. Based on a script idea originally penned by Bruce Lee is tells the story of Cord (The Seeker) as he works through many trials and challenges on his path towards enlightenment. As a piece of cinema it probably isn’t the greatest film ever made but as a modern day parable it’s a very interesting piece of work. It’s one of those films that will resonate powerfully with certain people but leave others quite cold; a bit like Marmite, you’ll either love it or hate it!
Here’s the ‘Spoiler Alert’! At the end of the movie Cord visits a secret island where he is shown the book within which is supposedly written all the secrets of life, the universe and all that. His search is complete, he has mastered all the tasks he has faced and is about to discover the secret to enlightenment. In anticipation he opens the book only to find that each page contains a mirror reflecting his own image back to him!
There are many nuances of understanding to this imagery (and to the film as a whole, so please do watch it) but one thing is a clear takeaway message; the answer to all life’s mysteries lies within each of us. Turn your attention within and you will discover the true source of everything; including who you really are through a realisation of your true self!
Herein lies the problem though. Either by default or design our world teaches us to look outwards for answers and never inward. Humans are basically lazy and it is a lot easier to take on someone else’s view of how the world is, rather than to really think deeply about things and figure it out for ourselves. That involves real effort and means we might have to change pretty well everything that we have previously taken as ‘truth’! It means taking on board the possibility that the world is not as we have been taught by our parents, or by our teachers at school, or by our religious institutions, or by our politicians and leaders.
This is a hard path to tread. It takes courage and perseverance to follow; you very quickly realise that you are on your own, something of a lone wolf! The majority of people are just not interested in anything that would disturb their view of reality – however shitty that reality is for them! Henry David Thoreau said in Walden, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” So true, yet what an indictment on the world that we live in!
This process of separating people from their true nature seems to be accelerating too. There is a social media meme that sums it up beautifully:
So many Selfies, no knowledge of Self.
As a society we seem to have become obsessed with external images rather than the substance behind that image. The further we move away from connecting with our true nature the more shallow and uncaring we seem to become. In a world that has the ability to feed, clothe and home everyone on this planet we see divisions of wealth that are, quiet frankly, obscene.
Does it have to be like this? Of course not! But it does require that people take on their own personal quest by looking inward and really examining everything they find. A bit like a computer reboot, it may well be necessary to assume that everything you have been told is false and start again.
Some 30 years ago my instructor gave me a card with a short verse on. This was a teaching specifically aimed at me and designed to correct a tendency I had. I thanked him of course and then carried on doing exactly what I had been doing – clearly I wasn’t ready for that particular jump in my thinking just yet. It is only in recent years that the full impact of his words have become internalised and have now become my default thinking (most of the time anyway!). I share these words with you now in the hope that you’re quicker on the uptake than I was and you can find your own answers and understand how we are are all fundamentally connected.
The message Sensei had for me was:
Do not look for in others what you can only find in yourself.
Have you ever wondered why some people are really successful even though they are absolute bastards? Perhaps, your boss? Or, do you have that high maintenance ‘friend’ who regularly unloads all their troubles on you and leaves you feeling totally drained? In both cases you have met someone who may well be an energy vampire! It seems that some people actually soak up energy from those around them and playing on other’s emotions is the ultimate way of generating this source of ‘food’.
This is a really interesting article on this phenomenon, providing something of the science behind it. Please read and feel free to leave your comments below.
Did it ever happen to you, when you were with a person and you felt a bad vibe, as if the person was stealing your energy? “Everything is energy” is one of the main axioms of science, and human beings are no strangers to energy transformations. An…
The ancient sages and spiritual masters had a fundamental message for humanity. They taught that we are all part of the same energetic whole – everything in our universe emanates from this source and was formed directly from the same substance as the source. They spoke of the oneness of all creation and the flow of source energy that animated all life.
This ‘mystical’ understanding was gradually eroded as the deterministic scientific world view, with its cause-effect dogma, gradually took over. Everything could now be explained by a simple model of ‘if A happens then B must follow’ and we became nothing more than inconsequential cogs in a massive universal machine.
What science took away with one hand it now seems to be returning with the other! It is now acknowledging that the world is far stranger we have possibly ever thought. Quantum Physics is showing us that the spiritual masters may have been right all along. Matter itself, always thought of as the very building blocks of all that exists, seems to be nothing more than swirling energy vortexes when viewed at the quantum level. Everything it seems, is nothing more than energy at different levels of ‘solidness’!
This article goes into more detail on our weird quantum world and draws some very interesting and thought provoking conclusions. Please enjoy it and leave your thoughts below.
It has been written about before, over and over again, but cannot be emphasized enough. The world of quantum physics is an eerie one, one that sheds light on the truth about our world in ways that challenge the existing framework of accepted knowledge. What we perceive as our physical material world, is really not […]
One of the great things about the Internet is starting out on a fairly random surf and suddenly coming across a site that really resonates with your own work. Finding Tracy Kolenchuk’s site ‘Healthicine‘ was definitely one such encounter. You say ‘healthicine’ as you would say ‘medicine’ and Tracy’s basic philosophy is that we should be concentrating on activities that promote health rather than taking medicines that treat only symptoms.
Somewhat incredulously, most medicines make no claim to cure! This statement certainly makes one sit up and take note so we have included a link to Tracy’s full article below. Definitely a very thought provoking read, particularly as he goes into the lack of the word ‘cure’ in modern medicine. One line in particular really stands out: Most medicines treat diseases, but do not cure. Most medicines are marketed with the mantra “learn to live with your disease”.
Read the article here and please share your thoughts on it below.
Most medicines make no claim to cure. Most medicines simply do not cure. Does this surprise you? It’s a statement easily verified, even by a novice. Let’s look at some ways to test, and prove it. First, walk over to you medicine cabinet. Take out each of the medicines.
