Wisdom

butterflies-95358 aToday, I came across a beautiful website and was taken by the wisdom of Native American Indian Traditional Code of Ethics*. I would like to share it with all of you. Below is my shortened adaptation of what I read, as those passages so resonated with me:

– Each morning upon rising, and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life within you and for all life; consider your thoughts and actions of the past day and seek for the courage and strength to be a better person.

– Show respect – showing respect is a basic law of life. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.

– Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother. Do no pollute our Mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.

– Be truthful at all times and under all conditions.

– The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honour of one is the honour of all.

– All the races in the world are like the different coloured flowers of one meadow. All are children of the Creator.

– Serve others. Happiness comes to those who dedicate their lives to the service of others.

– Observe moderation and balance in all things.

– Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your ruin.

– Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms; in prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise elders and friends.

One of the above pearls of wisdom stated: “Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother”.

Our Mother Earth is suffering from mismanagement by humans. Through respecting ourselves and living in balance and harmony, we come to respect all sentient and inanimate beings:

The Earth will not become extinct,
the Earth will not be shaken that badly.
The Earth will be creative and will recover and madly
will fall in love with the people again.

These people will not be of today’s nature.
These people will be a noble breed.
These people will understand nature.
These people will be descendants of today’s humanity.

These people will be of a fine mould,
a mould of godly thoughts and deeds.
These people are here already today—
some of them are ready, some are awakening.

The above is an excerpt from a poem in Evolution, the fourth book of my five books Purposeful Mind series. Visionary verses in Evolution offer you insights into possible future of our bodies, our planet, and more.

Valentine’s Day – Love

rose-7634 ATo celebrate Valentine’s Day I am including a few snippets from some of my poems about LOVE from the 3rd book of my Purposeful Mind series, titled Contemplation, Understanding Your Inner World:

 Smell the Roses of Godly Love

For those who are fully integrated
in the art of love that is not lost
and lustfully overpowered by the senses,
that did not lose its true meaning,
that is warm and beaming
that you quiver from pleasure
which is not of fleshly origin,
that is an everlasting cosmic vibration,
that is love pouring from every cell
and other formations,
that is love, as God intended it to be,
the spiritual inferno of love
that swallows all other loves….
……..

Your Love Breeds Love

Love yourself before others.
Express gratitude toward yourself
before you thank others.
Express love to yourself
in a tangible form, such as:
I love you, for as I look at you
you are giving me lots of joy.
I love you, as when I deal with you
you are always gentle with me …..
……..

Love

Love is a feeling that is quite etheric.
Love is a feeling that is of the higher Spirit.
Love is a feeling of being one with others.
Love is above all a compassionate understanding
of your fellow human beings’ needs,
of your fellow human beings’ aspirations,
of your fellow human beings’ advances
reaching beyond the stars…
……

And a bit from another ‘love’ poem:

Heavenly Love

…….
..oh that love, that love is so powerful
that it will give you plentiful
energy and joy,
it is a love of recognition that all,
all is one,
that you are one in all,
that all is one in you…
………

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Contemplation, the third of five books in the Purposeful Mind series, deals with bringing conscious beingness into doingness. The level of consciousness we bring to our daily lives is mirrored to us by the quality of our life experiences. Aspiring to change a condition in our external world without attending to our internal environment cannot bring the results we seek. The main topics of this book include discourses on honesty, joy vs. fear, treating ourselves well, love, heart, sexuality and more.

My First Blog – Purposeful Mind

I have finally decided to start blogging. Does the world need another blogger or another blog? Perhaps.

I’ve been busy, busy, finishing my Purposeful Mind series. This series of 5 books of compelling verses has been downloaded by me, or rather to me, several years ago from the Spirit realm.

Below is one of the poems from my fifth book of this series: METAMORPHOSIS, What Else Is Possible. Previous to this series I published 3 books that were in prose, so, yes, I do not wax poetic every time I write.

I call this series “conceptual spiritual” poetry. Enjoy.

Cocoon You Have Been

Illuminating, as it may be,
you are on the threshold of a discovery,
discovery of who you are.

Are you holding yourself hostage
by pretending to you about you,
withholding the information from you
about your true self?

Your commitment to yourself
is a way of finding who you are.
Are you a person who is not very grounded?
Are you a person who is spiritual?
Are you a person who is not well versed
in spirituality itself?
Are you a person who can climb mountains?
All of those need to be found.

Do not hesitate to ask questions.
Do not hesitate to negotiate
with your Higher Self, find who you are.
You can emerge as a cocoon or as a butterfly.
A cocoon you have been for a long time,
it is important to see that butterfly
open the wings and fly.

You can build bridges,
you can topple mountains;
you can change absolutely anything.
You can bring the changes, and you are.
You can accelerate from where you are.

Forget all mundane thoughts,
but still feel entitled to your little joys,
your piece of a pie, and a little talk.
Do not forget to think of yourself at all times.
What are your needs, your wants?
You have absolute power to do anything you wish—
it is your absolute, absolute power.

Love yourself; spread your wings.
Be your own guide and do not think
that others can change the outcome of your life.
You are a maker, a creator
of your own universe, of your own realizations,
of all your own palaces and caves.
