For the Love of Mysteries

I’ve lived in America and now in France. What is the difference? Well, the question is, what do they have in common?

Mr Obama doing a cool sign….

Then today from Mr Sarkozy, in all places, doing a speech during a visit in a  hospital…

…being in trouble for some money given to his party before his election, in cash, by the richest French woman ( Loreal, you are worth it! Yes we can! Ooops, wrong country). He’ll be on tv tonight defending himself.

Cool sign, no? But what does it mean? Seems everybody famous loves it! Do they really listen to heavy metal at home???

It’s got to be an important sign I’m sure! Could this be all about Peace and Love? They all seem to be in some kind of ecstacy doing this sign.

I might start doing it!

Is It Greener on the Other Side?

Two ladies in their 80’s:

– One has all of her mind but has edema and arthritis so bad that she can barely walk anymore.

– The other has Alzheimer. Her mind is gone somewhere but she can walk for miles, her body is still so healthy.

Who is the one that seems to be the most suffering? The lady who still has her mind who wishes that she could still walk like that and keeps on talking about it all day. The other lady is really fine in her world, living in the moment!

Either way, one can’t help but have compassion for both of them.

The Sounds of Nature

The warm days are here. The frogs are singing, in harmony with the crickets, going along the waves of the moon. Once in a while, an owl joins in. The nightingale also, day and night, is longing for his mate with his amazing tunes. 

Two local women are on their evening walk in nature. Along their path, they meet two Parisian women here on vacation. They chat for a while. 

 Then one Parisian asks: “What is that noise that we hear every night that keeps us awake?” 

The two local women think and think: “We don’t know what you are talking about. We don’t hear any noise.” 

The Parisians are persistent: “There, we hear it right now! What is that noise? It’s been driving us crazy and we’ve been sleepless for a few days!” 

The local women open their ears: “We don’t hear anything.” 

Until one of them realizes what this is about: “Could that be the frogs?” 

There it was! The frogs! Some can get so used to them that they cannot hear them anymore. For others, they drive them crazy. 

Beauty truly is in the eye (or the ear) of the beholder!

 

  

Healing and Spirituality II

Even though we may find ourselves on a path that connects us to some teacher or healer, we are so forgetful that it is ourselves that heal, not that outsider that heals us. Our society surely reinforces that powerlessness. Some dogmas also are based on that lack of power: do good and be good and you’ll go to heaven, call on a saint or an angel to make things all good.  Ask God for help…

Asking for help is a calling outside of ourselves. Indigenous people seem to know better. They don’t ask outside themselves. They embody a spirit. They become one with spirit. There is no separation–no duality. They are One and the same with spirit and life. Living not far from the Lascaux caves, it is interesting to observe Cro-magnon man’s paintings. One can feel the oneness this man/animal. We might call them primitive but really, who are the primitive ones?

How long do we have to wait for help to arrive? At what cost? We have become so afraid of going within our own darknesses, our own shadows. We are afraid because we might have to change. Change is that great unknown. The unknown could be death–our deepest fear.

It really takes courage to go within our soul to find out what is there, hidden behind the veil. The dark night of the soul, we call it, the great power of the Goddess part within us.

Unfortunately, it often takes a disaster of some kind to decide to go to that dark place, without any choice–when we have lost our health, our processions or our mind. This is when we start to see little things as blessings.

No one but our Selves can find peace within. Peace is when healing occurs … or our last breath. Peace is when the soul is at One, atoned, attuned within its Self.

There is no saviour but ourselves. The saviour/spirit will not come if we don’t go within ourselves. We are the miracle and we just have forgotten, at One with everything that exists.

Healing and Spirituality

So many people on the spiritual path are into taking classes on healing and they are so diverse: hypnotherapy, past life therapy, rebirthing, seeing a guru or a teacher, etc.

Is it necessary? My answer is “no” and I think that I am the proof of it. Way before I was aware of any of these spiritual ways, I had an enlightening experience. Maybe I’m backwards? My life seems to prove it sometimes, but let me explain: all it takes is stopping. Stopping, reflecting for one second and bang —  it happens. Your life is changed forever. No pastor, minister, guru, rabbi, vegetarian regimen or specific diets, church or anything.

Let me repeat. All it takes is to stop and breathe. No special breathing technique either. All it takes is you being conscious of a desire to change. It’s just a twist in the brain, that’s all!

What do you do next? Well, since your life is now changed forever, you keep on going with your life. You learn — you evolve, I guess. You keep on observing life as it is offered you. Nothing matters and everything matters.

For my part, after my first experiences, my hands went on fire and then I found out that I could participate in people’s healings. Since I had no idea what was going on, I took different classes such as Reiki, Jin Chi, spiritual healing, etc. through different metaphysical groups. Was it necessary? I now recognise that no, it wasn’t, but I had to figure out how it worked. Even though I enjoyed the experience of learning different techniques, I must say that after some 16 years, I still don’t know how it works!

I have a friend who travels the world, going to multiple groups and teachers to find the best healing ways for himself, never to be satisfied and never to have enough. We humans make things so complicated. You can go round and round in circles when the answer is right in front of you, right where you are.

You can perfect yourself as an idea, conceptually, but perfection is impossible to achieve since perfection is impossible to pin-point. What is perfection? In the dictionary, it says: ” The state or quality of being or becoming perfect” or ” the highest or most nearly perfect degree of a quality or trait.” Is this vague, or what?

Even though there might be a stage in one’s life for one to realize that programing is running rampage with them, causing dissatisfaction, one can never attain perfection. Perfection is itself a preprogrammed concept either learned from our parents, school, religion, or society. Within our imperfections, everything is perfect!

Therefore, no healing or therapy or anything great is necessary. It’s just that “twist in the brain.” That’s all is takes. The rest is just called life — exploring, living, and being, and having awareness, intuition, and consciousness. It just IS and That is ALL.

So why do I do hands-on healing on occasion? Well, it makes me think. Maybe it’s about that twist in the brain, that message that might come out of me, designed just for that person to hear …
