The Inner Quest of the Grail

by Mara Freeman, M.A.

Why are we still fascinated by stories of the Holy Grail told long ago in the courts of medieval Europe?  It’s my belief that the Grail myth persists throughout the centuries like a recurring dream that must be brought fully to consciousness, understood, and resolved.  This is the theme of my latest book, Grail Alchemy.  As mythologist Joseph Campbell said, the quest for the Grail is “the founding myth of Western civilization.”

The Grail is a sacred vessel as old as creation. A rounded container, it belongs to the family of symbols – bowl, cauldron, vat, well, cup or crucible – which are all images of the divine feminine, the Mother Goddess whose womb holds the waters of life, found as far back as the Neolithic era and in cultures from ancient India to classical Greece. In Celtic myth and legend, this hallowed icon of Western spirituality has its origins in the magical cups which have life-giving and protective properties and more often than not, these cups belong to goddesses or female spirits.

Love and Gratitude Exercise: Day 82, Ik 4

LOVE AND GRATITUDE EXERCISE   Find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed for at least 15 minutes. The purpose of this quiet time is to become balanced and to release tension and stress. It is necessary for you to be in a relaxed and harmonious state of be-ing in order to be able to move beyond yourself and to experience love for all. When your energy is contracted by fear and your thoughts are focused on all the things happening around you, it is easy to get lost in frustration and impatience. It is very hard to love others when you are in this state of mind.

After you have prepared your space by turning on the music, lighting the candle and incense or whatever works best for you, get into a comfortable position. It does not matter whether you are sitting or lying down, the important thing is that your spine is aligned as straight as possible in order for your energy to flow freely. Once you are settled, take a few deep breaths in and out, relaxing your body and allowing yourself to release the busyness of the day.

Focus on your breath. When you inhale, visualize breathing in love and kindness. When you exhale, release tension and thoughts or emotions that drain your energy. Continue with this pattern for a few minutes until you feel deeply relaxed.

New Moon In Sagittarius: Flames Of Freedom

by Salvador Russo

New-Moon-in-Sagittarius_OMTimes

Flames of freedom have begun to blaze forth from the epicenter of today’s New Moon in Sagittarius! Spiritual invigoration throughout the world will rise into irresistible crescendos as these heavenly fires amplify our spiritual power and inspire our conscious actions, leading us to strike out at every lie and corruption within our mind’s reach. Consciousness will bloom and beam with inspired learning, as if diamonds were being placed into our minds by our “friends in high places.”

We will be gaining or re-gaining cherished freedoms which will restore shaken perceptions of the future and motivate us to explore the good pastures which God will be guiding us into. When the freedoms come seize them with passion, just as Alexander the Great did. This is a time of alchemical fire so harness this fire and use it to fuel your focus and the desires of your heart. Let this flame burn brightly in your mind forever: Deep within, we are all masters of our reality.

This Is How It Is

Look into My eyes, and you look into a reflection of Myself. It is a moot question as to Who is looking into Whose eyes? Whose eyes are reflected?
 
I am saying that We are One. Who is who and which is which is a circle that goes round and round. We can call it a dilemma. We can it an insoluble puzzle, yet what difference does an explanation make? Let’s just accept that We are One, one soluble solid Oneness. We cannot be separated. Even as I speak of We, no matter how fragile a Human Being as you may see yourself, I am you, and you are I.
 
This how it is. This is how it’s always been.
 
So when We speak of My being close to you and your being close to Me, what are We speaking of but the closer than close of the Oneness of One.
 
It seems hard to believe that We are One when you see human beings as foolish or even cruel, debasing themselves and, therefore, the whole of creation. If man is a travesty, how can he be One with Me? How can I say so? And how can you believe Me? I do say so, and I do see so. When all the cover-up is dispensed with, then you and I are irretrievably without exception -- One.
 
You probably say: “Good Lord, there seems to be an enormous amount of separation rather than Unity.”
 
That may well be how it seems, and yet I say staunchly that separation is untrue, and Unity is true and viable.

GFP Newsletter - 11/22/2014

Your mind is thinking, your body is working, you are occupied. Your whole energy is moving in activity, is being dissipated into the world. When you think, you are dissipating energy; each thought takes energy, needs energy. You are continuously thinking and dissipating energy for nothing -- just dissipating energy. Activity needs energy, and your infinite source of energy is continuously being dissipated. You are leaking from everywhere. That's why you feel so weak, so frustrated, so impotent. This impotence feels like helplessness; you are omnipotent and you feel impotent. You have all the sources of infinite energy within you, you are related to the cosmic source, but you feel impotent because you are continuously dissipating energy. If thought stops even for a single moment and activity is no more, if you have become like a statue, unmoving within or without, if there is no movement, either of body or of mind, then tremendous energy is released. Where will it go now there is no activity? It cannot go without. You become a pillar of energy, a flame of energy. Everything becomes conscious inside, everything is lighted; your whole being is filled with light.

Levels of Consciousness

On our journey of waking up or becoming more conscious and aware we find that we need to let go of our egos more and more in order to make the journey.

This is a process of growth outward and diving deep inside our souls in order to find what we are looking for.  Who are you really?  What are the boxes holding you back?  What are you afraid of?  What decisions do you make because of how others are going to react?  What do you want to create?  What do you want to achieve?

Each time we grow our soul and our consciousness we peel back the layers of reality and perceive more and more of what is really going on.  Not only are we more about to see what is really going on around us but we come closer to our inner creator and then source energy within us.

The dangerous American myth of corporate spirituality

How invocations of "karma" and Zen are being used to justify deeply unequal systems of power

Recently, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella gave some shocking advice to a young businesswoman who was concerned that her male peers were passing her up for promotions: Don’t question the systemic sexism of corporate America, just trust in “good karma” to get you ahead. While his attitude made waves in the blogosphere, in fact it accurately represents a form of spirituality that is becoming popular in the West.

You know what I’m talking about. When I go to yoga, I’m often surrounded by wealthy white women who can afford expensive classes and Lululemon threads. When I scroll through my Facebook feed, I see exclamations of bourgeois spirituality (“Staying at the Waldorf tonight! #gratitude #blessed #100happydays #livelife”). Moreover, my actor friends seem to use karma and positivity as tools to help them achieve commercial success.

The Ego is a PDF File

To change our reality we need to remember that our soul is the programmer, our mind is the software and our body is the hardware.  This means that we can change the programming of our mind and also heal our bodies.  To do this we need to start by understanding our Ego or illusion of separation from everyone and everything around us.

The EGO works very hard to convince us that we are not worthy of enlightenment.  Our Ego is first created by the projects upon our pure young minds by the people and culture around us and eventually becomes subconscious.   Find out what can we do to fix ourselves and not pass these problems to the next generation in the video below.

How to Uncover and Let Go of Guilt

By Manal Ghosain | One With Now

I used to think fear and anxiety were my dominant negative emotions. It seems I was wrong. Lately I’ve discovered that underneath anxiety there is a deeper layer of guilt.

And if you’re like me and think fear is worse than guilt, think again.

The Fed Just Acknowledged Its Too Big To Jail Policy

What's this mean? Essentially the federal government just admitted that, by their own policy, the big bankers are above the law. Hopefully people will wake up to the fact that this doesn't make the bankers innocent, it makes the federal government an accessory to their crimes.

WASHINGTON -- The federal government until recently shielded big banks from criminal prosecution out of concern that convictions may damage the financial system, a top Federal Reserve official said Friday, explicitly acknowledging a policy long denied by the Obama administration.

The admission came during a tense exchange between William Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) at a Senate Banking Committee hearing meant to explore the cozy relations between federal regulators and the banks they supervise.

Daily Message ~ Saturday November 22, 2014

Doubt is a very effective tool the ego self uses in its attempt to keep things the same. Doubt is successful in avoiding growth because it leads to procrastination, and then stagnation.

Dear Ones, your ego is far from the enemy. It is an essential part of the operating system of the human being. What it is looking for is your love and reassurance. So if you are finding yourself procrastinating on doing things you wish to experience, realize your ego fears it will cease to matter if you move forward in this direction.

To move beyond procrastination, we would suggest reassuring your ego self that you will love and need it no matter what. You might ask it how it might participate in your new adventure by giving it a job, like keeping you safe in the activity. Find a way to include your ego in a way that allows it to feel nurtured and important. Or, if all else fails, placate it by allowing it to procrastinate on procrastinating! (laughter)

We encourage you to simply use your ego as a growth detector. If it is rearing up, it is a sure sign that you are headed in a direction that holds lots of growth and expansion. It would not be threatened if it were not so.

7 Ways To Trigger The Heart Field – The Most Powerful Healing Force There Is

Source: www.preventdisease.com | Original Post Date: August 15, 2014 –

7-ways-to-trigger-the-heart-field-the-most-powerful-healing-force-there-is

Every cause of disease first begins with an imbalance in the body’s energy systems, specifically, the interaction between how the heart communicates with the brain and the body. Fix that and there is no disease, ever. The heart can produce an electrical field 100 times greater than the brain and a magnetic field 5000 times greater. Which one are you using to heal?

Emotions are vibrations which influence consistently our reality. We not only think and work our way through a day, meeting, assignment, but also feel and believe our way through it. The outcome depends on both.

Simply put, the number one cause of health is your energetic and emotional state. How you connect emotionally to your overall wellness and wellbeing is more important than any supplement, food, exercise or health treatment.
