HOLIDAY THOUGHTS IN A CHANGING WORLD
We have now an enormous battle occurring between the sunshine and the darkish. Beneath the floor, the sunshine is profitable however the brand new media don’t need to let go of their score, and worry and corruption promote. Nonetheless, we all the time just like the Solar in Sagittarius to heat the vacation hearts, and planets in Mula Nakshatra remind us to show to God we’ve the Solar there now and Mercury in that constellation for a very long time till mid-January and Mars will undergo there Dec. 27-Jan. 14th. Around the globe, nice gurus and avatars are working to create a greater planet. We sense that the darkish forces will get their come-up-ance as you can’t violate the legal guidelines of nature endlessly and get away with it.
I believe all of the worry of Battle spreading forces us to reevaluate our lives. Listed below are a few of my ideas:
1) We’re right here to get pleasure from ourselves and never work ourselves into our graves. The financial system and the fabric realm of cravings push us to surrender treasured relationship time with family and friends. Older people who find themselves on the point of go typically are requested what they remorse and it was that they labored an excessive amount of and didn’t spend sufficient time with their household.
2) We’re right here to not repeat the identical errors of the previous. I’m typically reminded of my favourite film, Floor Hog Day with Invoice Murray. Are we going to endlessly make the identical errors and get up in the identical dangerous dream that we’re caught in or are we going to make new decisions and get up reborn, with a brand new lifetime of pleasure and enthusiasm? If we’ve dangerous relationship karma, are we going to simply accept accountability for what we did mistaken and do it higher this time?
3) We have now to be aware and never make the identical errors which suggests selecting kindness and compassion over blaming and fault-finding and complaining. In case you are not keen to repair it and do one thing about it, you don’t have any proper to endlessly complain about it.
4) We have now to train moral judgment. In an age of Rahu the place dishonest corruption and swindling are the norm, we’ve to try to do the suitable factor even when it’s not straightforward. I miss these tales on the information the place folks discover misplaced cash and discover a strategy to monitor it again to the proprietor and provides it again.
5) We have now to seek out Jupiter and defeat Rahu and never settle for corruption in authorities because the norm. We have now to return to educating ethical values at residence and within the classroom and never let our children get corrupted by violence and the celebration of evil that has turn out to be the norm on tv. Time to show off your tv, let your child play solely playground video games with different children, preserve them away from violent video video games, and cell telephones, and return to old school values.
6) We have to return to easy, taking good care of folks, and sharing, and never spend our time hiding in our addictions, numbing out to violent tv, and discovering time to make a distinction in different’s lives.
7) We’re right here to observe kindness and compassion. I’m reminded of a beautiful story from Elizabeth Kubler-Ross who interviewed somebody who skilled dying after which got here again and was revived on the working desk. She remembers having her entire life flashed and reviewed earlier than her as she ascended however she was solely proven the occasions when she practiced unconditional love and kindness. She remembered serving to a lady in a wheelchair at an in a single day camp and conserving her firm when everybody went off on a tenting journey and her sacrifice and love was a very good reminder.
All of those require making main modifications, selecting new patterns, and creating new pathways in our lives. It may be achieved but it surely takes a aware effort and an energetic alternative. We have now to be alert and awake to do it.
We’re right here on this planet, to present love and share, and to assist others. We’re not right here within the Age of Rahu to build up as many new devices as we will, waste our life numbing ourselves to our emotional ache and harming anybody or something, or spend our time denouncing others or demonizing others who don’t share our viewpoint.
A bit yoga, meditation, aware consciousness, and aware motion could make a distinction. Discover time to alter
I really like this glorious message from Yogananda concerning the Delivery of Christ at Christmas and it jogs my memory of the necessity for rebirth at the moment of 12 months. No matter faith you’re related to, the significance of rebirth of our internal Divinity is vital at the moment of 12 months when the nights are very lengthy and the Solar takes an extended time to emerge within the morning.
Day-after-day, each hour, each golden second, Christ has been knocking… Now, on this august sacred daybreak, Christ is very coming in reply to your internal name, to awaken his Christ Consciousness Omnipresence inside you.
This Christ of All over the place is sleeping within the breast of Eternity; He likes to take new start at any time, anyplace, particularly within the heat of your true affection. Although the Infinite Christ is current in each speck of house because the splendor of ever-new knowledge and artistic expression, you possibly can by no means see Him until He chooses to be seen within the cradle of your unceasing devotion. The comfy crib of your coronary heart has for a really very long time been small, holding self-love alone; now it’s essential to make it huge, in order that social, nationwide, worldwide, and Cosmic Christ-love could also be born there and turn out to be One Love.
The Infinite Christ is all over the place; worship His nativity in Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Moslem, Jewish, and different true spiritual temples. Each expression of Reality flows from the All-pervading Christ notion, so be taught to worship that sacred Common Intelligence in each pure faith, perception, and educating. Because the Cosmic Christ dreamed into existence the divine being that’s man, it’s best to have a good time the start of Christ in your newly woke up equal love for each nationality and race.
