Leadership for an Age of Higher Consciousness II: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times
Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and, after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it for himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.
She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you. Her husband had always been a tender and loving soulmate before he had left for the wars but, ever since he returned home, he was cross, angry, and unpredictable. She was almost afraid to live with her own husband. Only in glancing moments did she catch a shadow of the husband she used to know and love. When one ailment or another bothered people in her village, they would often rush for a cure to a hermit who lived deep in the mountains. Not Yun Ok. She always prided herself that she could heal her own troubles. But this time was different.
She was desperate. As Yun Ok approached the hermit's hut, she saw the door was open. The old man said without turning around: "I hear you. What's your problem? His back still to her, he said, "Ah yes, it's often that way when soldiers return from the war.
458 Fascinating Wisdom Quotes From The Best Minds (Ever)
What do you expect me to do about it? Come back then. There is a potion that will restore your husband to the way he used to be, but you should know that it requires an unusual ingredient. You must bring me a whisker from a live tiger. He turned his back. As you can see, I'm very busy.
How could she get a whisker from a live tiger? The next day before dawn, she crept out of the house with a bowl of rice covered with meat sauce. She went to a cave on the mountainside where a tiger was known to live. She clicked her tongue very softly as she crept up, her heart pounding, and carefully set the bowl on the grass. Then, trying to make as little noise as she could, she backed away.
The next day before dawn, she took another bowl of rice covered with meat sauce to the cave. She approached the same spot, clicking softly with her tongue. She saw that the bowl was empty, replaced the empty one with a fresh one, and again left, clicking softly and trying not to break twigs or rustle leaves, or do anything else to startle and unsettle the wild beast.
So it went, day after day, for several months. She never saw the tiger thank goodness for that! Then one day as she approached, she noticed the tiger's head poking out of its cave. Glancing downward, she stepped very carefully to the same spot and with as little noise as she could, set down the fresh bowl and, her heart pounding, picked up the one that was empty. After a few weeks, she noticed the tiger would come out of its cave as it heard her footsteps, though it stayed a distance away again, thank goodness!
Another month went by. Then the tiger would wait by the empty food bowl as it heard her approaching. As she picked up the old bowl and replaced it with a fresh one, she could smell its scent, as it could surely smell hers. Not a week later, the tiger allowed her to gently rub its head, and it purred and stretched like a house cat. Then she knew the time had come. The next morning, very early, she brought with her a small knife. After she set down the fresh bowl and the tiger allowed her to pet its head, she said in a low voice: "Oh, my tiger, may I please have just one of your whiskers?
She stood up, speaking softly her thanks, and left, for the last time. The next morning seemed endless. At last her husband left for the rice fields. She ran to the hermit's hut, clutching the precious whisker in her fist. Bursting in, she cried to the hermit: "I have it!
I have the tiger's whisker!
With pride she handed him the whisker. The hermit examined it, satisfied himself that it was indeed a whisker from a live tiger, then flicked it into the fire where it sizzled and burned in an instant. Tell me, is a man more vicious than a tiger? If a dangerous wild beast will respond to your gradual and patient care, do you think a man will respond any less willingly? Then she turned and stepped down the trail, turning over in her mind images of the tiger and of her husband, back and forth.
She knew what she could do. The hedgehogs It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions. After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.
So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive. The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.
The fence There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. Make sure you control your temper the next time you are tempted to say something you will regret later.
Your influence on the universe I read the first chapter of "A Brief History Of Time" when Dad was still alive, and I got incredibly heavy boots about how relatively insignificant life is, and how, compared to the universe and compared to time, it didn't even matter if I existed at all. When Dad was tucking me in that night and we were talking about the book, I asked if he could think of a solution to that problem. Affronted, the factory owner demands an itemised version. The sovereign had dinner and went to bed.
Wishing to show their generosity, they placed a huge goatskin bottle before his door and agreed to fill it up with milk for the royal breakfast. Anyone who has every loved has crossed this bridge. One way this merging of the two worlds happens is when two individuals are initially drawn together by the urges and expression of physical desire. Out of their romance, they begin to realize that something more is present.
That more is love Amazing things happen while your body rests , amazing things that have a profound impact on your waking life. Just because you are not conscious and aware during sleep does not make your sleep time irrelevant. What happens when you are asleep is healing and restorative on a physical level, integrative and calming on an emotional level and stimulates both insight and intuition on a cognitive level.
The third of your life that you spend sleeping is an active and vital part of your life. It is a time to activate and synthesize thousands of decisions and directions you have generated in your waking hours. It is the time to set into motion your thoughts and desires. It is a creative time of manifestation for your consciousness. The directions of your thoughts throughout the day become the blueprint for your sleep. During sleep, it is important to harness the power of your mind generated throughout your waking hours. I believe your life force listens to your dream thoughts and resolves to create in your life what you have directed it to do.
This directing of your life through the power of your thought happens on a very diverse field. It includes your glands and your organs and even works on an atomic level, shifting your subtle energies to bring them into harmony and alignment with your desires. For this reason, it is best to reach a state of peace as you enter into sleep. Sleep is not a time of unconsciousness, but rather is the fertile time in which your mind, your emotions, can align with your Higher Consciousness your Soul.
Sleep creates a productive and creative time. While you sleep, as your physical body rests and restores, the autonomic parts of your body are engaged in healing and balancing your hormones which activate a whole host of factors that were created by your emotions and glandular secretions in the day that has just passed. It is a process of healing your, mind, your emotions, and your body that is a subtle yet powerful part of healing sleep. Sleep as a healing balm is understood in our collective awareness since the time of Shakespeare.
Sleep is a vital and dynamic part of your day Learning to use the great and amazing power of your thoughts to manifest your life's purpose and fulfill your goals is a primary reason that many people explore the subject of consciousness.

By harnessing the power of your mind , you are transforming your life to align with your dreams and goals. You are actively co-creating your life in a dynamic way. It takes only a minute of sitting quietly and observing what you are thinking to realize that your thoughts are quicksilver. The nature of thought is so multidimensional and diverse that it is easy to be unaware and unconscious of what you are thinking. If the principle that " energy follows thought " is true and our thoughts create our reality as the "Law of Attraction" claims, we all have some work we need to do if we want to use our mind effectively and efficiently.
Gaining mastery over the mind, mainly controlling the free flow and often negative input of edited thoughts is a challenge. In your observation of the nature of your unfocused and uncontrolled thoughts, you may notice how much of your thoughts reflect what you fear. That is not a judgment of you, but a simple observation of the nature of what spiritual teachers have for centuries or longer referred to as the " monkey mind. Your thoughts have power, indeed the power to create your reality and can help by working for you, or can, unfortunately, work against you.

It is a powerful motivator to explore how these subtle principles and laws work. These revelations about the power of your thoughts are not new. Way back in ancient biblical times the book of Proverbs stated, "As a man thinketh, so shall he be. Since that time, there have been a variety of teachers and preachers, business leaders and thought leaders who have both validated and expanded on the great wisdom in Proverbs. In writing this Wisdom Wednesday Blog, I realize that I could fill the whole post with books and resources of those who praise the truth about the power of your mind.
I have provided some links that I believe are the best at explaining or teaching about this important issue and help you explore these concepts from a variety of teachers and approaches. I also want to provide you with a gift of one of my very favorite books about the mind, Napoleon Hill's life changing book "Think and Grow Rich. I hope this gift empowers you to help achieve your dreams.
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. To align you mind with your higher purpose and your Higher Self allows you to integrate what is spiritual with what is happening and manifesting in your life This article is part of my ongoing Series on Love. And in many ways, love is the most powerful and profound thing that you do in your life adventure. This refers to the power of Love which is both transformative, and by its very nature takes you into what is Divine.
To love is a bond that is eternal and timeless. Love is unlimited by time and not confined by space. Love is so powerful and profound that it transcends even the tyranny of death. The reason that love has all of this magical and mystical power is that it is much more than an emotion.
It is easy to fail to understand love in the midst of media and movies dramatic fantasies of what it means to love. A lot of misinformation about love is the fuel for stories that are not about love at all, but rather are demonstrations of need and desire. The cycle of attachment, need and desire are all too often described as love. This failure in society to understand the real power of love makes it more challenging to recognize love when you do experience it.
Perhaps, the best way to clarify what love is is to consider that love is much more than emotion. Although when you love someone, you may feel many emotions, these emotions only serve to open your heart and your mind to let you learn how to love The word awakening is used a great deal among the consciousness community to describe an emerging awareness that is evolving in the world today.
It is for our time in the evolution of humanity the word most often used to describe increased awareness of the spiritual part of yourself, your Higher Self, or Soul. The word awakening has , in modern times, come to replace the word enlightenment. Although the process of awakening, without a doubt, leads to ever increasing enlightened awareness, there is within the concept of awakening some underlying assumptions that I think it would enhance the process of awakening to consider.
Martha Beck’s Finding You Way in a Wild New World
The subtle and yet powerful difference in the use of the word awakening instead of the word enlightenment has within it the implication that what you are beginning to understand and what is emerging ever more into your consciousness is more a process of remembering. It implies an acknowledgment of what you already know, more than a process of learning or discovering something new.
If you consider that an integral part of who and what you are is a spiritual being having a physical human experience this all makes perfect sense. Awakening implies that you are emerging from a dream or illusion, realizing what is real. That concept has within it a myriad of assumptions that are worthy of exploring. Most significant is: what are you awakening to and what are you awakening from? It seems that the concept of awakening has captured the imagination of many who are reaching for spiritual enlightenment because it gives a hint to a deeper awareness that rings true in the human heart Once again I am reminded that the Light is victorious.
This world gives us that reminder every day. For me the transition from darkness into light every morning is one that brings joy and hope into my heart. Yet, as I enjoy and appreciate the blessing of peace, love and joy that comes as the prequel to my morning meditations I am aware that for many the peace of mind and spirit that I enjoy is only a dream. As I began my morning meditation with the question of what I can teach and demonstrate that will help and serve those who read my words this week, I became aware of how fear limits so many lives.
Recent geopolitical events, the Presidential election of Donald Trump, North Korea missle launches, bombings and multiple acts of terrorism across the planet have raised the fear threshold. As I write these words the logical part of my mind argues that the world has long been plagued by both wars and rumors of wars. Certainly in my lifetime I cannot remember a time of peace in the world. Sadly, the peace in my heart and mind is not the peace in the world. As I pondered on this awareness a quote that Mahatma Gandhi made during his epic fight to end apartheid came to my mind.
He said:. As he fought against the evil of apartheid you can observe in his life and his writings something that is very important There is magic in each morning. No other time of the day is so rich with promise. What is possible today has never been possible before. Whatever has happened in your past is NOW over. You are free. You can lay your burden down and release it into the past where it belongs.
The only power it has over you is what you choose to give it. You can, in the magic of this morning and the magic of this moment, start anew. This is the power of the dawn. To claim this power, you may have some things you need to do. You may need to f orgive yourself. You may need to forgive someone else. Whatever forgiveness is required is possible. Claim the magic of this morning to open your heart and your mind to the unlimited potential of this day. This day has never been before.
It is just NOW emerging and being created Empathy is an ability with many different definitions. They cover a broad spectrum , ranging from caring for other people and having a desire to help them , to experiencing emotions that match another person's emotions , to knowing what the other person is thinking or feeling. According to Simple English Wikipedia, empathy is a word that means that someone is able to share or understand the emotions and feelings of another person.
I believe empathy is a gift. However, for some who are awakening to their higher power, their Soul, it can be a challenge. From reading many recent posts on Social Media, it is clear to me that empathy is rarely understood. Those who are striving to be of help and service to humanity in this powerful time are often unaware of the higher purpose of being an empath and more importantly understand how empathy works.
