Earth as friend – all beings sacred

imagesHumans are mammals living within a larger living being – Earth. Another way of thinking about the context of ourselves within the planet is the planet within us. We are host to many parasites, to cancer cells mostly inactive, bacteria and so on living symbiotically with us. Most of us have forgotten that we are animals and we have lost our connection to our home – the planet that sustains us. It isn’t enough to think about a connection to Earth and be connected. Thinking keeps us in the realm of thought and the mind. Thinking about being connected to the planet may be a romantic notion that continues to keep us disconnected. It is thought and the technology of thinking mainly language that has aided us in our disconnection from Earth. The nature of language and how we have used it has laid the groundwork for the objectification of Earth as a thing. Modern Capitalism has defiled Earth into resources or things.

 

Our bodies are ordinarily grounded to Earth. But we are not always present in our bodies so the grounding visualization is ideal for feeling a connection to Earth and having a personal relationship with her. Due to our focus on and in our minds we don’t have much awareness of our bodies and how they relate to one another and the environment both human-made and nature. We treat our bodies as vehicles of consciousness and thus make our bodies things to be used. Experience becomes objectified and we are cut off from our bodies, our emotions and even from our minds. The disconnection spreads to see people and earth as things. We become more easily manipulated and eventually enslaved from this kind of disconnection.

 

Earth: At the core of Earth is an iron ore crystalline sphere rotating four degrees faster than the surface of earth as it floats in the liquid magma at Earth’s center. Surrounding the magma is the magnetic core. Surrounding the magnetic core are all the layers of rock divided by volcanic fissures. The Iron Ore crystal contains the codes for all organic and in-organic body-beings in the biosphere. The Iron Ore is earth’s heart because it allows life and the magnetic field (aura) to exist. By connecting to the core on a daily basis one can develop a personally intimate connection with earth that goes beyond words.

 

This is a sacred process. When we feel Earth as mother and friend the threads of sacredness spread out to include all beings organic and inorganic. Sense, feel and envision our planet as a friend and our participation with Earth as a harmonious celebration of life.

a grounding exercise / practice

images

Find a quiet place to sit on a chair, couch, floor or ground.

Notice your breath and the weight of your body. Direct your attention to compassionately let go of any tension you are holding. You may not be able to release all the tension you have and that is okay.

Next direct your attention to your Root Chakra near the base of your spine.

Imagine a beam of light or a grounding cord descending through all the layers of Earth.

If you are utilizing imagery of a grounding cord you may want to see an anchor attached to the cord and falling away through all the layers of Earth like a knife cutting soft butter. Allow your cord to connect with crystalline core of Earth.

Or see the beam of light connecting to a spot in the iron ore crystal at Earth’s heart or center.

Allow yourself to feel the connection.

[I have done this exercise daily for over 20 years and I feel a close connection to my friend and mother — Earth. Once more of us do this / feel the connection and work in our own ways to affect our world then harmony with Earth can happen.]

An Intuitive Look at Thoughtforms

In Tibetan Buddhism a thoughtform or tulpa arises from the mind which creates illusory states often referred to as realities.EssenceFlameEternalSri Aurobindo reports that Modern Humans do not have the ability to think in complete thoughtforms. As a result of incomplete thought forms negative thinking manifests in lower vibrational environments as violence, war, murder and death. If a random negative thought occurs in us and we don’t take responsibility to stop if from entering into the stream of the world then it seeks out a lower vibrational reality to manifest itself.

 Most thoughts do not originate with us. It is extremely rare for an original thought to arise in us.

The question remains then if an original thought is rare where do all these thoughts originate?

Most of the thoughts we think are recycled passed on to us from our parents (and previous generations et. al.) and born from dysfunctional behavioral patterns based on fear instead of love. Lower vibrational thinking based on fears are easier to accept due to our neurological hard wiring and biological survival instincts. This kind of thinking and the emotional correlates make it easier for it to bond with the body’s thoughts and habits. Fear based thought is held by the body for the purpose of survival and harks back to human’s pre-language survival behaviors. Fear is a useful emotion when it alerts us to an immediate danger. Fears in modern civilization are often separated from immediate dangers and produce a neurotic impulses from which arrives anxiety and increasing stress.

“New Age” thinking though useful is predicated on the illusion that we are capable of original though and free will or free choice. Examples of this paradigm of logic can be found: https://psychesweather.wordpress.com/2016/03/15/a-conversation-about-ego-and-unconditional-love/

The Dali Lama and others who meditate report that the best time of day for the practice of meditation is at 3:00 am. The reason – when the mind is quieted it is increasingly receptive to the noise of the thinking of others. Most people who sleep at night – the cycles of sleeping are deepest at 3 am, and the noises of others thinking is quieter at that hour. Quieting of the mind for meditation can occur more readily at that time. Meditation allows for a quieter mind allowing the nature of peace and expanded consciousness to be perceived by us. Meditation is the beginning of making space for the practice towards mastery and generating complete thoughtforms.

The neurological basis of thought is an electrical firing of energy across a synapse connecting with another synapse. The electrical nature of thinking fills our aura or electromagnetic field with the residue of our thoughts each with distinctive charges. Our biology creates an electromagnetic atmosphere around us that varies in size anywhere from 6 to 12 feet in terms the most personally charged field. Other more subtle fields can range from 25 to 100 feet in diameter and “sit” outside the personal field.

When we interact with many others we come in contact with the matrices of thought and shared thinking with others. This could be referred to being “psychic”, but it is not. It is not psychic because we have been sharing this chaos for so long it is difficult to tease out individual thoughts for two or more reasons: 1. There are too many thoughts to differentiate one from another. An automatic screener has developed in us and manifests unconsciously; 2. Receiving one thought of many thoughts triggers an association based on our ego’s constellation of previous thoughts and received thoughts are then mistaken for original thoughts. When we live in a sea of thoughts that are invisible absorbing the matrix of thinking that has existed since the technologies of language were first put to use then we create an illusion that we are original thinkers and continue to make assumptions that are built on the platform of language and ego.

The chief purpose of spiritual practices and disciplines are to assist individuals in developing essence and unifying the fragmented and wounded voices within (that make up ego) while bringing essence to a level of mastery. It is only then during the process of unification towards mastery that the field of thoughts and so-called original thoughts can be seen as recycled materials. Once the student begins to see this then the beginnings of accountability can take hold around thoughtforms.

When we begin to see evidence the ego as illusion and feel an insatiable thirst for wholeness of our Being then essence work can start and grow towards mastery. It is only then can incomplete thoughtforms be stopped through a process of taking responsibility for thoughts, emotions and somatic reactions. This is a monumental task and not everyone is up for the extent of work that the quest for mastery requires.
