Inherent Value of Your True Self

Inherent Value by Su Maya

The other day I was asking a friend if they knew how truly valuable they were. They said , “No, not really.” I mean if you knew how great your true self was you would really cherish it. It is worth more than millions of dollars.

What is the true self, and where do you find it?

The true self is deep inside of you. It is the stuff the mystic masters talked about in their dissertations to followers. It is hard to measure by worldly standards. You cannot place a yard stick against it and see how long it is, because it extends into Infinity.

You cannot put it in a container like a jug made of clay, or a barrel, or a lake. Your real self is not containable. Only while you reside in a physical body do you say, “This is me, I am here.” It is only attached to matter, not really controlled by it. When your body dies, your real self can expand again. This goes for humans as well as animals.

Likewise, if you place value on the things you have collected, the money in the bank, the cars, trucks, property and houses that hold them, you might miss the point. These items do have value, but when you leave this body, you will leave it all behind. The next generation will use them, or they will end up in a thrift store, but they will not be viewed the way you see them.

In some sense, it is a matter of perspective. For instance, an antique passed down from your Grandmother may have sentimental value, plus it may have collectible or auction value which fluxuate with the market. It will not be seen the same way as each observer will take in what they will through their filters of experience. One person will pass it by thinking “oh, another dusty set of table and chairs”. Another will bid for it beyond market value because it matches the decor in their dining room. No two people will see it the same.

Our filters are a blueprint of our values. As we were growing up, experiences were imprinted on the psyche and we developed a blueprint for life. It is very hard to change these, except by conscious application of new ideas and practice. It is much easier to modify them by small increments, adding or subtracting bits and pieces.

Sometimes more powerful events shape our lives and therefore the values we hold dear, like when a tornado or flood destroys homes and businesses. In the aftermath you hear survivors saying “At least we still have each other.”

This brings me to the next level, which relates to religious or spiritual values. If you were brought up with a backround that stresses the good in an ethical life, and the rewards in the afterlife, you may have a multi-dimensional viewpoint. It would guide you to avoid temptations that would cut your intrinsic value, for example, mercenary killing, cheating or stealing for money, drugs, arms or slave trades. These lines of business would cause you to have deep emotional and psychological conflicts, sensing that you were in deed selling your soul.

You are more valuable than that. Your true self is greater than can be measured. No job in this world is worth giving that up. A poor person may be more valuable because they forfieted some terrible compromise. Someone who has a lot of guilt or shame over past actions can redeem themselves and make amends. They may take on a burden uncharacteristic to their previous lifestyle. It may not be visible now; not to your employer, not to your family, or anyone who resists the choice to stay loyal to God and His decrees.

Keep the faith, and remember these choices are only temporary. If you get confused by eloquent arguments, go back and read the 10 Commandments, the simplest outline for doing what is right.

What will last forever is your Soul, your inheritance and connection to the Almighty who knows all, inside and out.

Spiritual Awareness: a Car Metaphor

Simple Awareness is like this: you are sitting in your car and looking out the windows at the world, and the glass is covered with dirt and bird poo, but you say to yourself, “That’s how it is, the world looks like a mottled mess of dark matter. My body is this car and the dashboard is the brain with all the things I can do with it. We can drive around, listen to music, see the lights, feel the sensations of hot and cold on my skin. I can get stuff and carry it around. If I have someone with me, this is our world, what else do you need?”

What if you cleaned off the glass, on every side, and looked out? You would see a lot more. You would be aware of a wider range of landscapes and skies, of roads that lead to unknown places, other animals and people that you could get to know better, and how they are all connected. So much more is available. The tiny holes of light that appeared through the mud, would be open to perception and knowledge. You would be amazed at how much was out there, that you were missing.

Our bodies are just the vehicles for higher learning. In the Kabbalah the word is Merkabah, meaning a chariot, a carrier of movement through time and space. The Soul is the real carrier which transcends both. When we do the work of clearing out the debri that has accumulated over the years, our true selves become vehicles for ascending new heights of awareness.

When we die, the body goes but you can take awareness with you. It is a valuable commodity in the afterlife. The work you do here to make spiritual awareness a growing asset for the future will pay off, even if you can not see it right now.

Lotus of the Heart

“As large as the Universe outside, even so large is the Universe within the lotus of the heart. Within it are Heaven and earth, the sun, the moon, the lightening, and all the stars. What is in the macrocosm is in this microcosm” – Chandogya Upanishad

Hopi Elders Prophecy

HOPI ELDERS PROPHECY

To my fellow swimmers: there is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid, who will try to hold on to the shore, they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.

Know that the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, and keep our heads above water.  See who is there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves, for the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves. Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. For we are the ones we have been waiting for.

Wind & Waves: Shaping the World for our Future

Geophysical and astrological insights by Su Maya

Several times in Earth’s history, over millions of years, there have been changes in the shapes and movements of the oceans. Evidence shows where the coastlines used to be, where sea plants and marine life left their skeletons. The Grand Canyon and a large part of the southwestern United States are strong examples of places that held oceanic life and is desert now with a river running through it. When you walk on the desert floor, you can still find fossils and shells. More of Africa was once covered with lush tropical forest and many more animals. It is still possible for large bodies of water to change shape around our land masses.

Naturally, we are moved by much larger forces in our Solar System because as the energy shifts it effects global environments. We are influenced by energies as part of this intricate design. It begins with the relationship between the elements at the atomic and cellular levels, then works its way out into perceivable realities. The elements have always been in motion so it is really nothing new in the grand scheme of the Universe.

This is not a prediction of a sudden collapse of the world, just about weather’s movement on our local plane of existence. Even with all the high tech devices that are available to us, it’s not possible to predict all the hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, or weather patterns, especially if the patterns we have gotten used to shift over time. It will most likely be a gradual carving and sculpting of our current perimeters and lifestyles. There are a ways to evolve with the climate, so I am including suggestions to guide us through possible shifts in the coming years.


Space Weather

A great source of electro-magnetic energy is the Sun, which is reaching its 11 year solar maximum. The last one was around 2001. During excited periods, powerful waves of energy called Solar Winds, can disrupt mass communications and shift mind/ body connections with startling effects. It’s heat can increase pressure on already desperate landscapes. As it burns off moisture, it is also burning off protective layers in our atmosphere exposing everyone to higher levels of radiation. If you have ever lived in southern Arizona, Africa or the Middle East in the summer you would have a sense of this burning environment.

There is geological evidence of major polar shifts around the planet. That means North and South poles can reverse. It is still not known how this happens or what it takes on the surface to adjust. One theory is that strong magnetic forces from the Sun could realign our magnetic fields down to the iron core. It is not expected to happen soon though.

Astrology and Climate Change

Wind driven hurricanes and tornadoes can develop within forecast models, or totally break them. This year the tornadoes started early, hurricanes too, and the windy season is still ongoing.This spring and summer there will be several planets in air signs. At the time of the full moon on June 4, the Sun will conjunct Venus and later on Mercury in Gemini. Saturn continues in its trek through Libra, and Jupiter will enter Gemini, speeding up thought, air travel, and wireless communications. An opportunity for wind generators of power and other related projects could arise.

With the flowing planet Neptune continuing to transit the watery sign of Pisces for the next 10 or more years, we will see more changes related to water. We have already seen this during the last 2 years.

Water, which takes many forms, including rain, rivers, lakes, groundwater, ocean currents, clouds, snow, glaciers, ice caps, and every combination will be changing in quality and form. Strong earthquakes can trigger tsunamis. Strong hurricanes can flood inland empires destroying miles of farming, livestock, towns and businesses in a matter of days. These scars take many generations to rebuild and the coastlines are revised.

We are so dependent on water for life, but we usually forget how easy it has become to turn on a faucet to get everything done. Good sources of drinking water may suddenly become toxic and threaten lives in or near it. New pipelines and purification treatments may be necessary, at least until the reservoirs can clear up over time. If there are conflicts between municipal supplies, try to look for ways to shore up resources peacefully, or move to a safer location.

Oceans are too powerful to stop, too slow to recover making some historical communities uninhabitable, especially if the ecosystem is damaged, poisoning the fish and their food sources. Examples of these kind of changes can be seen in Japan, New Orleans, and several fragile islands worldwide.

In contrast, we are also seeing more fires, more intense heat waves, more heat related illnesses. This week New Mexico is having one of its worst wildfires ever. Drought stricken areas like countries across Africa are especially vulnerable this summer.

Uranus the planet of discovery is in Aries, a fire sign that rules the head. This combination can bring surprising turns in the wind patterns and spark drying plains with lightening and other electricial fires. Old growth forests which have enjoyed many years of rain, can fuel extremely dangerous fires.

On the lighter side, Uranus in Aries will also inspire new ways to deal with these problems. Early warning systems have been put in place and weather radios are being distributed more freely than before. This transit is just in its early stages and will last several more years, so we will have time to brainstorm more ideas.

Pluto in Capricorn will also influence the tides of change. Pluto is the great destroyer and rebuilder of conscious realites. Since it is plowing through the earth sign of Capricorn, there have been more transformations related to values, commodities and finances. We have already seen real estate markets, corporations and banks go under, and beg for government funds. This is another slow transit lasting more than 10 years, and there will be more trials.

It may move the soil by means of giant companies with earth-moving equiipment through mining operations and drilling for oil. It may also trigger more earthquakes and volcanic eruptions like we are seeing in Italy, which at this writing has had its third major quake and 800 aftershocks.

Some groups of people who have chased glitz and glamour may face unusual reversals of fortune. Paradoxically, some who have lived a modest life will find unexpected grace that didn’t exist before. This can happen for individuals when the outer planets make strongly aspecting transits in their charts, especially during oppositions and squares. You may already be thinking of a few examples of such people from the public sectors. New heroes and villains can emerge, with ironic turns of events.

Values deemed important in ancient times will rise up from the ashes like a phoenix, based on the philosophies and ways of the Native tribes and indigenous peoples. Their legends and prophecies can be seen as guidelines for sustainable living.

Recommendations

It may seem out of context to read these things while you are in your current routines, but what if you are not prepared? Here are a few other suggestions for adapting for survival, if it becomes necessary.

First, find ways to filter your air and water, to supply heat in winter, and shade in summer, in case the electric grid goes down for long periods of time. Roads can be blocked that will prevent oil, gas and most other supplies from being transported, so have a stock of food for your family and animals that does not require cold storage or cooking. Make sure your First Aid kit is fresh. Keep a bit of cash on hand so you are not dependent on the web, or banks for assets.

Along the way you may search for help from government, insurance companies or other authorities and although you may find some information you may be disappointed, misled or delayed. It’s better for you to sharpen on your instincts and trade skills with those you trust locally, in case of emergency. Some of the best stories of brotherhood and heroism come out of neighbors helping one another.

It is a good idea to watch your animals and native wildlife for signs of changes in their behavior. Their senses are much sharper than humans and will alert us if we are listening. Just like a cat who hides from noises, birds who collectively silence themselves before a storm, or elephants who feel earthquakes miles away.

If people are caught unaware, there can be severe hardship, but more relief to follow as it does with every cycle. However, the simpler your lifestyle, the more your senses can be open to knowing what to do and acting on time. You are free to move on when you have fewer burdens to deal with.

Now is a good time to sort out what is really important. Don’t take life for granted. Make peace with your loved ones, and give away what you don’t need. Life in its purest sense is all we really have anyway.

Remember the tranquility of being grounded and unified with Nature? She will speak to you if you are able to hear Her Voice. You may have to carve away many of the peripheral activities of society in order to be free enough, clear enough to intuit the inner truths. Meditation and simplicity are key here.

In the end, where ever you are in consciousness is where you continue. This may involve a whole new life or a fresh point of view in which to continue the Journey.
