FOR THE CHILDREN. FOR ME. FOR YOU


What I feed grows.  Bodily and spiritual nurturance comes with positive intake and outsource.  I choose to feed Love and Peace.  I choose Joy.  Tragedy needs Loving intent and especially needs the outpouring of Generosity of spirit, care and kindness.   A tragic boy with a twisted mind is as tragic as the dark depress he poured on innocence life.  I pray for them all.

I find myself practicing the Hawiian HO’oponopono, “Making it right”. I seek some part of the tragedy within myself, i.e., my loss of innocence, or maybe some piece within me that feels like a twisted mind moment . I identify it, I sit with it quietly, and give this prayer, ‘ I’m sorry. I forgive you, I love you. thank you.’ By healing my own inner demons, or painful loss of innocence, or whatever… I help heal the world.  And so it is.

PATH


the sippy the coffee is mighty strong this morning. Possibly to the wonder of David Meyer’s coffee at Mighty Coffee called,  are your ready?   TRes Mighty.   As usual, I eyeball the amount to go in the filter and today I believe I have out done myself.  

 

Below is yesterdays contemplations to ponder on my pilgrimage.  This is day 19 and somewhere in my body that shivers with life and shivers from fear, I begin to understand the Buddha.

 

You cannot travel the path until you have become the path.

–Gautama Buddha

 

The real measure of practice is whether, little by little, we can find our edge, that place where we’re closed down in fear, and allow ourselves to experience it. This takes courage, but courage isn’t about becoming fearless. Courage is the willingness to experience our fears. And as we experience our fears, courage grows. Noticing our edge and trying to meet it also allows us to develop compassion, not just for ourselves, but for the whole human drama. Then, with an increasing sense of lightness and curiosity, we can keep moving toward a more open genuine life.

 

—Ezra Bayda, At Home in the Muddy Water

 

Sometimes we think the path is “out there” somewhere beyond us and if we could only find it we would go home.  Buddha suggests otherwise.  Much like Machado’s image of “the way is made by walking,” we also must remember that we are the path we want to follow.  There is no separation, it is not something external to our lives.

 

GG’s take on it all this a.m.

 

“You cannot travel the Path until you have become the Path”

 

There is nothing that my path isn’t.

It is the blue highways through the middle land

It is the blood of my pulsing heart beat

it is the meadow between the forest path

It is my sitting here wording my way to you

 

There is nothing that my path isn’t

It is the crush of forbidden love

It is the raw of being seen 

It is the Ho’oponopono healing

It is blood, guts, and bone

 

There is nothing that my Path isn’t

It is God.  It is Goddess, It hell and Satan

It is compassion, kindness, fear and worry

It is my entire lifetime to right now

It is the next step of my heart

The next step of my mind

The next step of my feet

The next step of my spirits quest

It is my heart

my feet

my mind

my spirit

my heaven

my hell

my life

my death

my infinity

my love

My love

It is Now

HO’OPONOPONO…


14  august  2011   >   17/8   >  Star/Balance/adjustment

 

How will you stand centered between Heaven and Earth?

Do you know that when you take care of your self you take care of others?

HOw will you take care of yourself?

 

 

Ho’oponopono, (as I understand it) is an ancient Hawaiian practice that invites you into being fully responsible for everything that is right and wrong in the world.  ANd… to practice SELF forgiveness as a way to heal the world around you.  It is the act of making things right.  Forgiveness being a profound instrument in that healing.

When you notice anger in other, notice where anger lives in you.  When you feel the wages of war are despicable and horrific, notice where that war, that despicable place lives in you.  Notice it, and realize that if you ‘heal’ the anger, the war, the pain, the suffering, within yourself, you help heal the world.

The mantra, the pray that is to be repeated as you make notice of this within you is:

 

“I’m sorry.  Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.”

 

BTW… this is a profound way to help heal yourself.  And… I do believe it heals the world.  I invite you to take notice, and try it.

 

I have not read anything that speaks to what is already ‘right’, in Ho’oponopono, and how that might also be honored and held within the same elements of responsibility and prayer:  the goodness that  is part of this thinking,this believing, this spiritual practice.  If I am responsible for all that ‘is’ expressed around me and in the world: I believe it is equally important to honor the joy and profound goodness and kindness that is also reflected in the world around me.  When I see joy and kindness,  where does that live with me, and how might I honor it?  How might I spread all that pleasure through me and around me?

With this said… I have made a prayer/manta to it.  

Taking a moment to inhale into all that goodness and allowing it to fill me up. Saying a prayer to myself, a mantra that goes like this:

 

I am grateful for this joy.  

Please make me a conduit of kindness.   

I love you.  Peace be with you. Thank you.

 

I am grateful for this joy

Please make me a conduit of kindness

I love you.  Peace be with you. Thank you

 

I am grateful for this joy

Please make me a conduit of kindness

I love you.  Peace be with you.  Thank you

 

Below are a couple of sites that tell you about Ho’oponopono.  What do ya think?  To Forgive and love what is within you, gives forgiveness and love to the world.
