Mantra for transformation

 

Relax, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Every breath helps you to sink more deeply into a quiet place inside yourself. This is the source of sacred-tranquility. Now you can gently and passionately recite this mantra:

“I will discover a new image of myself that I have been longing for so long. My awareness tells me that I am indeed apart of this universe. I experience calm and healing. I trust myself more and more confident. I gently follow the inner guidance as I feel strong and courageous.

In a moment, I find out that I carry a sense of knowingness with me into the world. Amazingly, I can envision myself having more trust to be more focused within and surrender at the same time. I begin to experience that my world is nourishing to myself and others.

I discover what I have created on the outside actually is much more beautiful and wonderful than I have ever thought because of this remarkable passion. My commitment to the universe is winsome.” Amen.

The Power of Doubt & Distrust

In life, when the truth is told, you could experience either trust, doubt, or distrust. The differences between doubt and distrust need to be explained.

Doubt and distrust are not the same. Many people get confused about them, and they think they are the same. No, they are not the same. Doubt is about uncertainty. It is unsure. It is about knowing that something is happening but not knowing exactly what is going on. Distrust means condemning the whole thing. The worse is there is no willingness to open up or learn about such things. One already made up his/her mind. There is a certainty or final decision in distrust.

Doubt could have multiple directions, such as toward positivity or negativity. One who has doubt with positivity direction and being process with positive belief systems will lead to the capability to see opportunities and grow—the possibilities to experience a deep sense of wonder and awe that scents the internal and external exploration.

Doubt with the support of the facts and the clarity of evidence will become reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt powers the journey further, with confidence and with a sense of purpose and responsibilities.

Unreasonable doubt happens when doubt being processed by the maladaptive thought processes, such as “All or Nothing Thinking,” “Overgeneralization,” and “Catastrophizing.” Through this negative processing, doubt who is now transforming into unreasonable doubt, becomes an existential distrust.

When one sees his/her life through this existential distrust lenses, life could be a curse, a never-ending suffering, or a never-ending defeat and debacle—life is experienced as a continuous catastrophe, paralyzing and totally saddening. At this point, one has no way of stepping out of his/her discursive thoughts, no way of stepping out of his/her ego fixation and grasping because one is so caught up in that particular preoccupation.

The necessary intervention is needed when one is rendering doubt with lenses of maladaptive thought processings. Right at that moment, with well-trained mindfulness practices, one can question the process of thinking, exploring the supporting and not supporting facts with rational evidence. Through this process, one needs to pause, stop, and breathe first while learning to let go of his/her preoccupation thoughts.

Furthermore, one needs to learn to take in his/her own pain and put his/her awareness into the rest of the world’s pain. Surprisingly, one will expand his/her knowledge and heart and further reinforce this noble gesture, leading him/her out from the preoccupation of negative thoughts and emotions.

What does this all mean? It is about how one can liberate his/herself from the potential of self-defeating thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Prayer for healing

“Almighty God, the giver of life and health, send your blessing on friends and all who are sick because of Covid and other illnesses. I pray for healing and comfort for them.

I pray that they and their family find refuge in you in the midst of the pain.

May you continue to give them the strength to keep going. To push through these dark moments and know you are with them every step of the way.

Draw near to them and let them feel your presence. I the name of Jesus, I pray.

Amen”

You can be successful

Life is strange and often imponderable when reflecting on what makes success and failure find their roots in simple experiences. The most typical reason people fail is that they left or give up when faced with temporary defeat. Believe it or not that probably many people are guilty of this mistake at one time or another.

Even though many people can analyze the mistake and found the lesson taught in each, respectively, they still fall into the same mistake repeatedly. What is the problem then? What is the secret that leads to success and achievement, that turns defeat into a stepping stone to opportunity?

Probably one of the answers is to explore the underlying old pattern belief systems that already tainted, such as “I am not good enough,” “I am not capable,” or “I am a failure,” etc. Then, learning to notice that achievement or successful life begins with a state of mind and a well-defined purpose. The further question becomes: How to nurture that state of mind that will attract success and achievement? Impossible? Not at all!

The amazing part is, as one thinks of his/herself as confident and successful, his/her achievement and accomplishment status will begin to grow. The astounding part is, everything he/she touches will begin to transmute itself into greater achievement and accomplishment that are gratifying and fulfilling. Furthermore, the acts of gratitude that express thankfulness become necessary and significant to nurture.

The mastery process to liberate

The seeds of mindfulness can flourish when one has devoted time tirelessly and happily to prepare his/her internal rich soil. One needs to have the confidence to mastery that through certain attitudes and mental qualities, happy life will prevail. The acts of cultivating and nurturing, along with the rhythm of life, are necessary.

In this process, one purposefully is tilling the soil of his/her own mind to shape character. In this mastery process, one perfects clarity and certainty every day. The process becomes the source of compassion and the right actions, replacing the confusion and maligned thoughts. Endurance then becomes the key here to liberate. As the old saying said, “when you learn or/and practice to love your life, life will love you all the way.”

Understanding the negative internal process

The thoughts that manifest from the unsafe and unstable sense of self that yearns to be protected produce a deep affliction feeling. This affliction feeling has great tendencies to repeat the irrational fear, sadness, and anxiety — with repetition and compulsions, that internal dynamic became psychological and emotional disorder.

At that state, one will try hard to defend him/herself against the unwanted events and feelings. Furthermore, there will be a strong tendency to hold on to a certain fondness, which is maladaptive. Automatically the mind filters in only to the favorite ones. These conditions easily lead to overwhelming experiences of despair, anxiety, and sadness, as well as compulsions and addictions.

Bells and Robes

Zen Master Unmon said: “The world is vast and wide. Why do you put on your robes at the sound of a bell?”

There is an old saying that whatever comes in through the gates is foreign. The gates are the senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. If we decide, move, and act by the senses, we obey foreign commands. In response to our environment, we feel pressured, are easily upset, become nervous. This is one of the characteristics of modern life. But if one settles down firmly in one’s inner life, all actions, feelings, and deeds come from deep within. The unenlightened one does things because he must do them; the enlightened one acts because he wants to. Freedom lies in the center of life — Zen Master Unmon points to the center.
[Zen Koans by Venerable Gyomay M. Kubose]

 

Healing…

The realization of the core belief system is a realization of the tributaries. The realization of the tributaries is a realization of the source. Seeing and being mindful of the connecting link between them is the path of healing.
Breathing in, swallowing the whole universe… Breathing out, manifesting the virtues within, proclaiming simple daily healing that everything in life is working out for you…
Breathing in, self-respect and confidence are growing more and more… Breathing out, replacing every negative attachment with self-control, strength, and confidence…

Universe in a drop of dew

Thoughts left unexpressed.
— like the infinite bridge that unites the earth and heaven
How much I love is as the size of the universe
How much I hope is as endless as the uncharted dreams

Again thoughts left unexpressed.
— the dancing between two becomes one in rhythm
Conceiving and composing happens in the melody
The astonishing part is,
— within the occurring of the impossible and the possible
the mind embraces heart, and hearts espouses the mind
The endless then happening at the moment
With wonder and awe, entirely

Again, thoughts left unexpressed.
— when found the universe in a drop of dew
And a drop of dew is in my soul
— In a surprising way and absolutely incredible!
