Healing Transformation

The human personality begins in the unconscious which is called the individuation process. The individuation process is happening when the unknown sacred potential seed emerges with the sacred ultimate living energy in the unconsciousness. This process symbolizes the power of the unconscious, whereas it shows how the fragile consciousness (referring to the ego) is born to be free and to gain strength through the infinite process.

It is not only the “ego” first emerges from the unconsciousness, it grows through, with, and in the unconsciousness. This sacred mystery communication within is a must process in this realm.

That is the reason why in the individuation process, the individual needs to be able to connect to the depths, the wider, and the integrated life within as much as possible. Every internal and external disruptions could affect this fragile process, and may create certain disorders. Thus, the ability to admit that there are disorders as a reality within becoming the act of accepting the self. This ability starts from the consciousness which then descends to the depth and wider layers of unconsciousness.

Therefore, the individual who is able to accept his/her depth realities, whatever they are (i.e., the realities within), has started the healing transformation process. The acceptance process in mystery ways will be resonating in the deep collective layers of unconsciousness. When the individual is able to take things as they are, the healing journey toward self begins.

The process is going to take time of course and with leaps and bounds. When the “wisdom begins” the new expected reality is happening. Each thought becomes each step that leads to little healing transformation.

Declutter The Mind

Feeling stuck?
Oppressed feeling because somehow watches life go by with mounting anxiety and self-discomfortable.
Sometime we need to wonder if we are stuck because we are being overly loyal to an old ideas or belief system that we cling too much to protect them.

Therefore the idea of “just breathe” at least will give a pause to the self, to have capability to switch to see, to listen, to feel with different perspectives; to pay more attention to our “map of reality” in order to transform, to heal, and to liberate.

We can start asking whether beneath our practical dilemma, there may be a childhood law at work.

We need to dig beneath the surface by asking radical questions in search the authentic roles of emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual structures.

We want to discover the hidden laws that exist powerfully control our way of being, way of understanding, and way of reacting.

In the process of this transformation, we need to gently and patiently dismantle those childhood’s laws which have been reigning within as “error-parental figures” (referring to the old dogmatic beliefs system that lead to stagnation).

Let’s echo these words in our interior castle of soul:
“My personal peace, my personal transformation is a process that’s going to take time. It’s not going to happen all at once. From time to time, there might be leaps and bounds but for the most part, it is going to be a series of small steps. Each step is a little more understanding, a little more peace. In each step I make the effort to heal myself in some small way, to accept myself in some small way, to love myself in some small way, to be easy with myself in some small way. I give myself permission to be easy with myself, to be easy with the process and to be at peace. One little step at a time.”

Merasa terjebak? Perasaan tertekan karena entah bagaimana menyaksikan kehidupan berlalu dengan kecemasan yang memuncak dan tidak nyaman dengan diri sendiri. Kadang-kadang kita perlu bertanya-tanya apakah kita terjebak karena kita terlalu setia pada ide-ide lama atau pada sistem kepercayaan yang terlalu kita pegang teguh untuk melindunginya.

Oleh karena itu gagasan “sekedar bernafas” setidaknya akan memberikan jeda pada diri sendiri, memiliki kemampuan untuk beralih melihat, mendengar, merasakan dengan cara pandang yang berbeda; untuk lebih memperhatikan “peta realitas” kita untuk mentransformasikan, menyembuhkan, dan membebaskan.

Kita bisa mulai bertanya apakah di bawah dilema praktis kita, mungkin ada hukum masa kanak-kanak yang bekerja. Kita perlu menggali di bawah permukaan dengan mengajukan pertanyaan radikal untuk mencari peran otentik dari struktur emosional, psikologis, fisik, dan spiritual.

Kita ingin menemukan hukum tersembunyi di alam bawah sadar, yang mengontrol cara berada, cara memahami, dan cara bereaksi.

Dalam proses transformasi ini, kita perlu dengan lembut dan sabar membongkar hukum masa kanak-kanak yang telah berkuasa di dalam sebagai “figur orangtua yang keliru” (Mengacu pada dogma-dogma masalalu, yang membentuk cara berpikir tertentu dan membuat stagnasi hidup).

Mari kita gemakan kata-kata ini di interior batin jiwa kita: “Kedamaian pribadi, transformasi pribadi adalah proses yang akan memakan waktu. Ini tidak akan terjadi sekaligus. Dari waktu ke waktu, mungkin ada lompatan dan batasan tetapi sebagian besar, adalah serangkaian langkah-langkah kecil. Setiap langkah sedikit lebih pengertian, sedikit lebih damai. Dalam setiap langkah saya menyembuhkan diri, menerima diri, mencintai diri dengan cara-cara sederhana. Kita belajar sabar dan mengasihi diri dan sabar serta menghargai proses menjadi. Saya memberi izin untuk menjadi mudah dengan diri saya sendiri, untuk menjadi mudah dengan proses menjadi, dan berdamai. Selangkah demi selangkah. “

Our Purpose and Life Meaning

Seringkali karena tantangan and kesulitan hidup, cara kita melihat dunia diluar diri kita and dalam diri kita jadi terbolak balik. (Misalnya mengukur hidup utuh ilahi dengan nilai nilai duniawi). Karena cara pikir and cara lihat tersebut, kita tanpa sadar berendang di dunia yang terbatas (mortality – mengarah kepada kematian – ke dosa-an) ketimbang berdasarkan nilai2 ilahi. Nah, mukjijat yang sangat luar biasa dalam hidup kita adalah inkarnasi Allah ke dalam hidup kita. Inkarnasi ini terjadi karena demi pemulihan kita dari cara pikir kita yang terbalik. Inkarnasi Allah ini membantu kita untuk Merealisasikan ke Ilahian kita – membantu menghadirkan keilahian kita semasa kita di dunia ini. Cara sederhana nya adalah dengan: mengaktualisasikan kualitas ilahi diri kita yang terbaik seperti hal nya pucuk bunga yang merekah penuh.

The Resurrection of the Lord

DSC_6542-01

The Resurrection of the Lord
Acts 10:34a, 37-43; Colossians 3:1-4 or 1 Corinthians 5:6b-8; John 20:1-9

The symbolism of night and darkness pervades the Gospel of John. At the very beginning we hear the proclamation that the light of the Incarnate Word of God comes to shine in the darkness (1:5).

The Gospel of John, chapter 20, verse 1: “On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark!”

Why does Mary come? Why do any of us go to cemeteries?

Regardless of the burial customs, the symbolism is the same. Whether you throw the ashes into the ocean or bury them in a garden, the reign of Death is stark, merciless, and irrevocable. The symbolism of night and darkness pervades the Gospel of John. It symbolizes the reign of sins and death.

You know the cold clasp of death when we buried someone. We know it in the literal sense, when someone who means the world to you is gone, when you yourself must stare it in the face.

You know also in a hundred other ways, as the death of friendship, the death of a career, the loss of youth, the loss of health, the death of happiness, and even the death of dream!

All of that seem to all of us as like the tomb of hope.

Why did Mary go to the tomb in the middle of the night? We are not told. But one thing is for sure; she was not expecting the resurrection.

All over the Mediterranean there were dying and rising gods but none of them were actual figures. No one, absolutely no one, expected to see such a thing happen to a real person. To the one whom you know the most!

That is why, when the Magdalene came to the tomb in the dark and saw that stone had been removed, she ran to Peter and the others with the news that Jesus’ body had been stolen.

What other explanation could there be for an empty tomb?

Remember this: The evangelist wants us to know that the Resurrection was truly inconceivable. The two disciples did not know what had happened until they got there. The resurrection happened at night. No one was there when it happened. He rose from the kingdom of Death and carried away its spoils. The rising sun revealed the victory already accomplished. The dark become morning. So the risen, living, reigning Christ says to us this morning, as he said to Martha:

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.”

Do you believe this? Jesus is right here. He is right here in a way that no one else has ever been.

Even now there is a real sense, in which you can, as the song says, “put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee” (ELVIS PRESLEY).

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself

And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee

My momma taught me how to pray
Before I reached the age of seven
When I’m down on my knees
That’s when I’m closest to heaven
Daddy lived his life, two kids and a wife

Well you do what you must do
But he showed me enough of what it takes
To get me through, oh yeah!

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea

Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently

Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee

Oh yeah!
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently

Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Oh yeah!

Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently

Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Oh yeah!

Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee, Oh yeah!

It is very difficult to describe how this can be.

But just as the beloved disciple grasped by faith that Jesus’ body had passed through the grave clothes, so also, we today, may grasp by faith that he is risen and alive.

The dark become morning. So the risen, living, reigning Christ says to us this morning, as he said to Martha:

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” Amen.
