Exploring the Shadow of Compassion

image_interfaith_dialog_charter_for_comp

My attention was turned to the concept of compassion. Webster’s dictionary defines compassion as, "Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it; pity." 

Hmmm... that didn't "feel" quite right to me. So I sat with it for a moment...

OK, compassion is an emotion: a feeling in motion, therefore it is a tool for moving forward. But as all tools, it can be used in a positive or negative manner. Yes, fire can cook soup for your loved ones or burn your enemy's house down.

It really bothered me that Webster uses the term pity when defining compassion, because Webster defines pity as, "a feeling of sorrow that inclines one to help or to show mercy." Well, yes, mercy is often a motive for rescuing another from pain. And we have been taught that mercy is good. Yet, from a higher perspective, pity and...  Read More

Eating light for enlightenment


 

Much has been written about the health benefits of a vegetarian diet from which dead and devitalized substances have been eliminated. Ecological principles are also cited as a prime consideration for restructuring our diets to better serve the fragile ecosystems of the Earth and our own bodies.

But what about the spiritual impact of eating a diet in accordance with the laws of the Universe?

Gabriel Cousens, M.D. goes into great detail in his book, Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet, describing the system through which he believes cosmic energy feeds and nourishes our physical bodies. This system begins with the potential energy that fills the cosmos prior to the materialization of an object. The first "stepping down" of this virtual energy is into something called a tachyon field space, which can be thought of as the...  Read More

Awakening to Peace... a Breath and a Choice

 

 
choose+peace.jpgRecently I connected with an old friend who asked me what I was teaching these days. She had done Reiki classes with me in the 90's and attended workshops on crystal healing, aromatherapy, astrology, meditation, macrobiotic cooking, yoga, chi gong, and feng shui which I facilitated for many years through Enviro-arts, a brick and mortar version of Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Goods.

I thought for a moment. What AM I teaching these days? I know there is the collective energy of all of these past disciplines in the foundation of my work, but I'm no longer terribly concerned with  complex Sacred Geometry and Matrixes for Ascension and Zero Point Creation, or even applied Universal Law... it is much simpler than even THAT now. 

"Awakening" is a cool phrase, and a starting point which combines the essence of all of these...  Read More
