From Soul's Perfection by Sylvia Brown p. 59. " Here is the way churches really started out. They said, "Come and give witness to what you believe." They didn't say, "If you don't come, God is going to send you straight to hell." That's crazy. It was originally simply to give witness to what you believed.
If you don't witness your truth, then a whole part of your life has fallen short. Witness what you believe--whatever it may be-- in your own life, in your families and job, and in your spirituality. Stand up and witness your truth....
Now when you do you may get slapped a little bit or even a lot. But in the long run, isn't it marvelous to know that no matter what "slings and arrows of ourtrageous fortune" are inflicted upon us, we can still stand? Be the hammer now, if you feel you should, and strike. Strike for your own justice, your own peace. Find a place where you can have peace in your own heart."

Bhagavadgita says: "Pleasures born of contact are only sources of pain. O son of Kunti, they have a beginning and an end (i.e. they are transient). The wise man does not indulge in them. " p.131 Jaideva Singh "Siva Sutras: The Yoga of Supreme Identity." Delhi: Motilal Banarsidass, 1979.

Not the Wind, Not the Flag:
Two monks were arguing about a flag. One said: "The flag is moving."
The other said : "The wind is moving."
The sixth patriarch happened to be passing by. He told them: "Not the wind, not the flag; mind is moving."
from p. 144 of "Zen Flesh, Zen Bones." Boston: Tuttle Publishing, 1985.

The Bloom:
  • That which God said to the rose,
  • and caused it to laugh in full-bloom beauty,
  • He said to my heart,
  • and made it a hundred times more beautiful.
    from:
Mathnamwi III 4129 by Rumi : "The Pocket Rumi Reader." ed. Kabir Helminski. Boston: Shambala, 2001.

Wisdom in 13?
Every 13 days, a trecena, of the Mayan calendar, if you elect to subscribe, you will see a newsletter in your mailbox. The Mayan calendar, the Tzolkin, according to various interpretations, is based upon the beginning of the universe and the solar system's relationship to the Milky Way Galaxy which in turn is spiraling around a "central sun" with which we are soon to align. This 13 day cycle will align you with the Mayan calendar, creating a link to the great event of 2012 when many cycles come to an end, and we take a big leap up the spiral. How that will manifest is unclear, but the acceleration of consciousness is happening now as the Tzolkin predicts. We are in for interesting times and adopting the 13, my lucky number, is one way I hope to harmonize with this event.
*Note: The date for this Newsletter is Thurs, October 26th, 2006... or 12.19.13.13.12 5Eb 5 Sak in the Mayan Long Count. According to the text by Ariel Spilsbury and Michael Bryner, "The Mayan Oracle" the EB star glyph means "Abundance, harvest, chalice, emptiness, open vessel, quickening." ( p.220)
