Prayers

I look up, past the trees, to the skyI give amity to all, and enmity to none.
Know that violence is the root-cause of
all miseries in the world.
Violence, in fact, is the knot of bondage.
“Do not injure any living being.”
This is the eternal, perennial, and unalterable
way of spiritual life.
A weapon, however powerful it may be,
can always be superseded by a superior weapon;
however no weapon can
be superior to non-violence and love.
-Jain prayer, India

We all know that
the chain of cause and effect can be
heavy enough
to cause fatalities.
May we also understand that
the chain of love islight enough
to be an angel’s necklace.
An angel sends us love for each pang of hurt
we endure.
-Modern prayer from Tehran, Iran

The day of death is when two worlds meet with a kiss:
this world going out, the future world coming in.
-Jewish prayer by Jose ben Abin

Where there is pain, cures will be found.
Where there is poverty, wealth will be supplied.
When there are questions, answers will be given.
Spend less time worrying, and more time trusting.
-Rumi

Been feeling a little raw?

The Earth recently passed through a region of space filled with negative-polarity magnetic fields. Such fields can open in Earth’s magnetosphere. Solar wind pours in.
-SpaceWeather

This can make one feel raw, exposed, and oversensitive. Those issues which have been pushed aside until now have been blown wide open and are in the forefront. The effort required to sweep things back under the carpet may actually outweigh the effort required to just deal with them.

Some things that can help:

  • Writing. Just free-form write, getting out your issues and fears, so that they stop rattling around in your head.
  • Grounding. Imagine roots coming out of the soles of your feet, connecting the heart of the planet to your heart, to help firm up your foundation.
  • Increase your water intake. When we are hydrated, it’s much easier to manage one’s actions and reactions.
  • Meditation. Meditation is the best tool for balancing the emotions and fostering clarity.

The Earth is an aspect of our Higher Self. When a crack opens up in the magnetosphere, corresponding cracks open in our aura, and in our shields. Everything gets more real. So why not deal with the reality as it presents itself?

Best of luck!
