Opinions often stem from our basest needs -
"People believe that their opinions are objective, but the truth is that most of the time, these opinions stem from their needs, and often even their basest needs. Take political ideologies for example.
To satisfy the people of Ancient Rome, they were promised bread and games. Still, today, in another form, the people must be promised bread and games.
Take also the theories about sexuality. As most men and women are incapable of controlling themselves,
specialists have presented theories that actually have no absolute value. These theories apply only to feeble and ignorant human beings who do not know – and do not want to know – that sexual energy could contribute to their spiritual fulfilment if it were mastered instead of
being squandered in the pursuit of pleasure. And so on and so forth with everything else. This is why it is so difficult to instruct human beings. They can truly understand and accept these initiatic truths only to the extent that they have succeeded in ridding themselves
of their baser needs, otherwise these needs keep them bound to their misguided opinions."
Omraam Mikhael Aivanho

Bridges of Light Within Change
September 2021

What a beautiful unfoldment it is with so much openness and vibrancy arising within you, within the planet, through and upon the planet. It’s a beautiful time to celebrate your expression, the embodiment of you, the embodiment of the
beautiful, complete marriage of the heart, of your higher and lower levels in this beautiful time of opening, emanating, expressing and divinitizing.

So right now, let’s just welcome in the rest of you to become more integrated, more embodied, more animated and amplified with
so much more ease, benevolence and grace, to where you can start to feel your regal-ness, your uniquedness, your specialness – the uniqued vibratory frequencies and tones that you are. Just take a breath and welcome in your uniquedness that supersedes any and all

Moderation - practising it so that the best things do not become harmful
"If we do not know how to draw the line, even the best things can become harmful. Unfortunately, moderation is not the most common of virtues among human beings.
For example, instead of taking only as much joy or pleasure as they need to be stimulated, people gorge themselves until they fall sick. They are like the man whose friend had invited him to dinner: ‘Let me see’, he said, ‘Monday I’m having dinner with so-and-so, so
Tuesday I’ll be in bed. Wednesday, I’m dining with someone else, so Thursday I’ll also be in bed. Well, I can make it Friday, if you like!’ At least he knew himself!
Whether it is food, drink or pleasure, human beings always tend to go over the limit.

True temple, the - a hallowed human body
"As long as human beings are not sufficiently evolved to understand the basic truths of the spiritual life, they will need the tangible, material aspects of religion.
But the day they finally manage to become more fully developed and awaken within themselves certain subtle centres – known in Hindu philosophy as chakras – they will gain a higher level of understanding of things and will begin to abandon the outer forms,
for these forms will no longer seem as vital, intense and powerful as those they are experiencing inwardly. Then they will no longer even need temples and churches.
There are many temples in the world, all of which have their reason for being.

Inner discomfort - find the cause of it and dispel it with light
"When you feel an inner discomfort, do not let it linger without doing something about it. Stop and take stock of the state you are in – what exactly are you feeling, what has caused it?
Try to remember what you have seen and heard, or what you yourself have done, said or thought.
Because something has caused it, and it is good to figure out what, in order to learn a lesson for the future. If you do not find the cause, do not just sit and do nothing.
Concentrate and try to dispel this discomfort by connecting with the world of light, which is our only salvation. Immerse yourself in the light, imagine that you are swimming in this purifying and invigorating fluid, and soon you will feel free,

A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat.
She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.
This is her story of giving gratitude.
A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help.
Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her…. a very dangerous proposition.
One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

The piece below from the 13th century poet Rumi carries within it an essence that is central to many spiritual traditions around the world. The teaching itself may seem simple, but the most powerful ones always do.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture...
still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.

Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.

Because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.

-- Rumi
