FROM SELF TO SELFLESSNESS.
Topic: Spirit's Food

Research shows that even skeptics can't stifle the sense that there is something greater than the concrete world we see

 

 

People "desperately need to know how to live their lives. They need to know who they are, to what purpose they exist, and how they should act towards one another; and, once they know the answers to these questions, they need to be helped to gradually apply these answers to everyday behavior."

It is to the solution of this basic problem that Successful Self Direction is aimed.

 

              http://successfulselfdirection.org/ 

 

A JOURNEY FROM SELF TO SELFLESSNESS.

ENLIGHTENMENT WITH EVERY STEP.

     (video attached)

 A Pad Yatra, literally translated as "journey on foot," is a snapshot of this selfawakening process. Each year, His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa leads hundreds of his monks, nuns, lay students and friends on such a journey. They walk on foot through mountain passes, tea plantations, paddy fields, forests, railway treks, remote villages, busy towns and bustling cities. It is an expansive experience of human life, alongside a spiritually accomplished master, his spiritual devotees and committed friends.

Peace
Topic: Spirit's Food
 

Peace is a gift; a mystery yet to unfold

  

     Both religion &  its rebellion have roles to be revealed…

     Peace is found in forgiveness: naming the hurts is a first step. We can bring love to these places, trusting that what we need will come. Let us act in whatever arena we can, for

            The will to act is key.

   To awaken this within ourselves, let us open our hearts, trusting that even in the

Unknown there is some “Good -Orderly -Direction” (“g-o-d”),  and that the next right  thing will unfold.    

 

_____________________________

 A Call for Peace.  A treatise named ‘‘The Promise of World Peace‘  calls for a world meeting of leaders a & peoples from every country. It has some helps to awaken the will to act,, and has been distributed to millions worldwide.

Thanksgiving
Now Playing: reframing thanksgiving
Topic: Spirit's Food
Article attached: THANKSGIVING ATONEMENT

In the atached article, the author refers to the " history of barbarism" that helped build our & other nations. Putting it in a wider political perspective, one realizes that 100 or 200 years ago nothing was thought of this sort of thing-- it was the way of life. Few had any shame about reaping the rewards of war-- "To the victor belong the spoils", the saying goes, and few thought beyond what they perceived to be justly won victories. The fact that today there is a growing sensitivity & a kinder view being taken, is, to me, a wonderful harbinger for human progress....


Article: THANKSGIVING ATONEMENT


It's Time for a National Day of Atonement by Robert Jenson on 3 November 2005 in CommonDreams.org

One indication of moral progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day and its self-indulgent family feasting with a National Day of Atonement(/Reframing/) accompanied by a self-reflective collective fasting.

In fact, indigenous people have offered such a model; since 1970 they have marked the fourth Thursday of November as a Day of Mourning in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas.
Not only is the thought of such a change in this holiday impossible to imagine, but the very mention of the idea sends most Americans into apoplectic fits -- which speaks volumes about our historical hypocrisy and its relation to the contemporary politics of empire in the United States.
That the world's great powers achieved "greatness" through criminal brutality on a grand scale is not news, of course. That those same societies are reluctant to highlight this history of barbarism also is predictable.
But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin -- the genocide of indigenous people -- is of special importance today. It's now routine -- even among conservative commentators -- to describe the United States as an empire, so long as everyone understands we are an inherently benevolent one. Because all our history contradicts that claim, history must be twisted and tortured to serve the purposes of the powerful.|

One vehicle for taming history is various patriotic holidays, with Thanksgiving at the heart of U.S. myth-building. From an early age, we Americans hear a story about the hearty Pilgrims, whose search for freedom took them from England to Massachusetts. There, aided by the friendly Wampanoag Indians, they survived in a new and harsh environment, leading to a harvest feast in 1621 following the Pilgrims first winter.

Some aspects of the conventional story are true enough. But it's also true that by 1637 Massachusetts Gov. John Winthrop was proclaiming a thanksgiving for the successful massacre of hundreds of Pequot Indian men, women and children, part of the long and bloody process of opening up additional land to the English invaders. The pattern would repeat itself across the continent until between 95 and 99 percent of American Indians had been exterminated and the rest were left to assimilate into white society or die off on reservations, out of the view of polite society.

Simply put: Thanksgiving is the day when the dominant white culture (and, sadly, most of the rest of the non-white but non-indigenous population) celebrates the beginning of a genocide that was, in fact, blessed by the men we hold up as our heroic founding fathers. The first president, George Washington, in 1783 said he preferred buying Indians' land rather than driving them off it because that was like driving "wild beasts" from the forest. He compared Indians to wolves, "both being beasts of prey, tho' they differ in shape." Thomas Jefferson -- president #3 and author of the Declaration of Independence, which refers to Indians as the "merciless Indian Savages" -- was known to romanticize Indians and their culture, but that didn't stop him in 1807 from writing to his secretary of war that in a coming conflict with certain tribes, "We shall destroy all of them." As the genocide was winding down in the early 20th century, Theodore Roosevelt (president #26) defended the expansion of whites across the continent as an inevitable process "due solely to the power of the mighty civilized races which have not lost the fighting instinct, and which by their expansion are gradually bringing peace into the red wastes where the barbarian peoples of the world hold sway." Roosevelt also once said, "I don't go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and I shouldn't like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth." How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis? Here's how "respectable" politicians, pundits, and professors play the game:

When invoking a grand and glorious aspect of our past, then history is all-important. We are told how crucial it is for people to know history, and there is much hand wringing about the younger generations' lack of knowledge about, and respect for, that history. In the United States, we hear constantly about the deep wisdom of the founding fathers, the adventurous spirit of the early explorers, the gritty determination of those who "settled" the country -- and about how crucial it is for children to learn these things.
But when one brings into historical discussions any facts and interpretations that contest the celebratory story and make people uncomfortable -- such as the genocide of indigenous people as the foundational act in the creation of the United States -- suddenly the value of history drops precipitously and one is asked, "Why do you insist on dwelling on the past?"
This is the mark of a well-disciplined intellectual class -- one that can extol the importance of knowing history for contemporary citizenship and, at the same time, argue that we shouldn't spend too much time thinking about history.

This off-and-on engagement with history isn't of mere academic interest; as the dominant imperial power of the moment, U.S. elites have a clear stake in the contemporary propaganda value of that history. Obscuring bitter truths about historical crimes helps perpetuate the fantasy of American benevolence, which makes it easier to sell contemporary imperial adventures -- such as the invasion and occupation of Iraq -- as another benevolent action.
Any attempt to complicate this story guarantees hostility from mainstream culture. After raising the barbarism of America's much-revered founding fathers in a lecture, I was once accused of trying to "humble our proud nation" and "undermine young people's faith in our country."

Yes, of course -- that is exactly what I would hope to achieve. We should practice the virtue of humility and avoid the excessive pride that can, when combined with great power, lead to great abuses of power. History does matter, which is why people in power put so much energy into controlling it. The United States is hardly the only society that has created such mythology. While some historians in Great Britain continue to talk about the benefits that the empire brought to India, political movements in India want to make the mythology of Hindutva into historical fact. Abuses of history go on in the former empire and the former colony.
History can be one of the many ways we create and impose hierarchy, or it can be part of a process of liberation. The truth won't set us free, but the telling of truth at least opens the possibility of freedom. As Americans sit down on Thanksgiving Day to gorge themselves on the bounty of empire, many will worry about the expansive effects of overeating on their waistlines. We would be better to think about the constricting effects on the day's mythology on our minds.

Topic: Spirit's Food

Some beautiful prayers to help you thru your day.
Here is a link to more http://www.bahaiprayers.org/spiritual1.htm

"So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth." --Baha'u'llah



'Pray to God that He may strengthen you in divine virtue, so that you may be as angels in the world….'


O God, guide me, protect me, make of me a shining lamp and a brilliant star. Thou art the mighty and the powerful.
'Abdu'l-Baha

COMFORT
O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.
O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.
'Abdu'l-Baha

COMPASSION
O Thou the Compassionate God! Bestow upon me a heart, which like unto a glass, may be illumined with the light of Thy love, and confer upon me a thought which may change this world into a rose-garden through the spiritual bounty. Thou art the Compassionate, the Merciful! Thou art the Great beneficent God!
'Abdu'l-Baha


HEALING
Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succour in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
Baha'u'llah

PRAISE
Glory be to Thee, O God, for Thy manifestation of love to mankind! O Thou Who art our Life and Light, guide Thy servants in Thy way, and make us rich in Thee and free from all save thee.
O God, teach us Thy Oneness and give us a realization of Thy Unity, that we may see no one save Thee. Thou art the merciful and the Giver of bounty!
O God, create in the hearts of Thy beloved the fire of Thy love, that it may consume the thought of everything save Thee.
Reveal to us, O God, Thine exalted eternity -- that Thou hast ever been and will ever be, and that there is no God save Thee. Verily, in Thee will we find comfort and strength.
Baha'u'llah

UNITY
God grant that the light of unity may envelope the whole earth, and that the seal, 'the Kingdom is God's', may be stamped upon the brow of all its people.
Baha'u'llah

UNDERSTANDING
O Lord, I have turned my face unto Thy Kingdom of oneness and am immersed in the sea of Thy mercy. O Lord, enlighten my sight by beholding Thy lights in this dark night, and make me happy by the wine of Thy love in this wonderful age! O Lord, make me hear Thy call, and open before my face the doors of Thy heaven, so that I may see the light of Thy glory and become attracted to Thy beauty.
Verily, Thou art the Giver, the Generous, the Merciful, the Forgiving.
'Abdu'l-Baha

CHILDREN
O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall upon them with Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the Compassionate.
'Abdu'l-Baha
