Bright and Shiny...Truth?


As the saying goes "all that glitters is not gold".  So many times we are drawn by what is more flashy and "shiny" rather than the plain and simple.  In recent months I have spent a good deal of time being an observer: observing at the global level, observing cultures, internet society, friends, family and of course myself!  Observing in love, as I watched and listened. 

 

There is something I see very clearly that is going on at all levels and it seems to be amplified right now:  seduction! Let's define just what we mean here by seduction so we are clear.  The meaning is "when we are tempted by something or someone that intends to deceive and lead us astray; sometimes that can be us deceiving ourselves".  Remember Lucifer?  He was the brightest angel, but he used the beautiful to tempt, seduce, and deceive.

 

 

Sometimes we allow ourselves to be seduced when it is something we don't want to see.  We don't want to see it because we would have to change our behavior and sometimes that's just not convenient.  Oh how we love our conveniences!!

 

Take "BPA free" for instance.  Is it safe?  There is a lot of evidence now coming to the forefront to show us a greater truth.; the alternatives that BPA was replaced with may be just as harmful.  But our attention is over on "BPA free" with a mindset that plastic is safe now...NOT!

 

Water is another example. As we examined in a previous newsletter, our municiapl water systems are full of harmful toxins.  We seem to be paying more attention generally to our water but we have a long way to go.  Here is a great documentary film on water:  Water: The Great Mystery

 

 

For the last six months or so I have been going through a big transition in regards to food.  I have been eating pretty healthy for a long time but there has been a profound call from deep within to go to the next level whatever that was.  It took me six months to figure it out, but it turns out to be a raw food diet.  I realize that may not be for everyone, but I took to it like a duck to water ;-)

 

In the process however, it increased my awareness around seduction and food.  The more I investigated, the more I found especially in regards to GMO's in the US.  It is insane and they are so dangerous to our health!  But food is especially a place we can be seduced and seduce ourselves in order not to look at what is harming us.  We don't want to give up what tastes so good. On the "darker powers that be" side of things, this is exactly what they want.

 

Here's a GMO mobile app that comes in handy. Especially take a look at the invisible GM ingredients list:

 

Center for Food Safety Mobile App

 

These corporate powers are also moving into the area of vitamins and natural health products. Did you know that Emergen-C was bought out by Pfizer, one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies?  New Chapter was acquired by Proctor & Gamble.  and Sun Foods, "home grown" by David Wolfe, was basically taken away from him by deceptive tactics of big corp. (David Wolfe is considered by his peers to be one of the world's leading authorities on nutrition.  If you would like to hear more of this story directly from David you can find it here on YouTube: "David Wolfe Speaks Out..." )

 

But my intention here is not to get into the details of these stories, but rather show them as examples of the seductions we are discussing.  Nor am I saying to get in a fight with the dark side.  Rather "...the best way to fight evil is to make energetic progress in the good" This is the advice from the sage (The I Ching, Wilhem Baynes translation, hexagram 43).  Do all the things you can to keep moving in a good direction for yourself.

 

  


Another place I see subtle but profoundly powerful seduction going on is in the realm of certain spiritual practices.  Channeling is a good example.  We must be discerning when it comes to these matters and not take things at face value just because they may seem emotionally "light and beautiful" and feel good in the beginning.  There are many "not so light" spirits that will be happy to use this emotional "feel good" to draw you in.  False prophets come in non-physical form too. We must be discerning... use our intuition and trust it. Trust what you know to be the truth and stand with it.  Use intuition...not emotion. If you get an intuitve sense that something is a little "off" then it probably is.  Trust yourself.  Make a clear decision one way or the other and don't "sit on the fence" for too long.  "Sitting on the fence" will only leave you in a convoluted state.  When you make a clear decision and commit (to yourself), you will be shown very quickly  if that direction is appropriate or not.  So even if your initial direction was incorrect, you now have the clarity you were needing to make the truly appropriate decision that may not have been clear to you from the "sitting on the fence" position. 

 

Fear.  I have talked about this in numerous newsletters over the years.  If you approach anything from a state of fear, it doesn't put you in a very good position to discern the truth. Again, hexagram 43 tells us "passion and reason cannot exist side by side..."  The best place to be is a state of calm, inner quiet.  From this place discerning the truth becomes easy and very clear.

 

Another thing to remember is that the answer does lie within you.  Just call forth the divine light of your own being that knows the truth and ask it to give you the clarity you need.

 

From a quiet center, putting away all desire and fear, the truth...the real truth, will shine brightly within you.  From this place the external "bright and shiny" of the world will appear dull in comparison.

 

Much love and blessings to you....




 


Meditation


Let us use this time for true meditation, which can take us to a place beyond our thinking.  Begin by quieting your body.  Find a comfortable position, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to begin with to help your body relax and settle in to the process.  Your focus is simple...just watch the rise and fall of your breath.  For the most part, that is all you need to do.  When thoughts, emotions, or other sensations arise, simply acknowledge them without resistance.  Allow complete acceptance of all that you observe.  A helpful technique is called labeling.  If you find yourself lost in thought, just say "thinking" and gently return to watching the rise and fall of your breath. Use this same technique with other sensations and feelings.  Use very general labels such as "feeling", "itching", "pain", and so on.  Try to do this for at least 20 minutes.  However, if you find yourself overcome by negative thoughts, feelings or emotions, go ahead and discontinue the practice for the moment because forcing meditation can bring unwholesome results.

This Issue Featuring:


There is a Dream

 FIRE PRAYER   




This song will be available for listening until the next newsletter issue

(approx. August 1st, 2014)




There is a Dream


Originally "There is a Dream" was a part of a small group of songs that landed me a deal with a country label out of Memphis, Tennessee.  It was originally recorded with a faster, more driving rhythm.  I was in the midst of profound changes in my life, which were also changing the music I was writing.  One evening I attended an outdoor drumming circle in the Nashville area and was spontaneously asked to sing.  I chose this song and tried it for the first time with just a hand drum.  What eventually resulted was this recording from Fire Prayer after I was graciously allowed to leave the country label to record in a completely new direction.  That has been my path ever since!



There is a Dream


There is a dream in my heart

A vision I do see

It is you soaring higher

It is me...we are free.


Hearts open wide

It is time to decide

To live in the light

In love to abide.


Sing your song to Great Spirit

The song living in your heart

Don't be afraid to hear it

This feeling is where it starts.


Hearts open wide

It is time to decide

To live in the light

In love to abide


The healing power of love

Sparkling light of the soul.


Make a stand for the future

Of this earth we walk upon

Sharing love...sharing power

Understanding, we all are one.


Hearts open wide

It is time to decide

To live in the light

In love to abide.


There is a dream in my heart

A vision I do see

It is you soaring higher

It is me...we are free.
