Be A Light

 

''Therefore, be a lamp unto yourself, be a refuge to yourself.

Take yourself to no external refuge. Hold fast to the Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourself.

And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, who take themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, shall not look for refuge to anyone beside themselves, it is they who shall reach the highest goal."

~ Mahaparinibbana Sutta

Besides being into the zodiac I am also interested in Tarot cards and like to meditate on their meaning, but don't do readings only on myself. I have several books on Tarot and the one I prefer is “Tarot for the Healing Heart Using Inner Wisdom To Heal Body And Mind” Using Tarot for Healing brings your body, mind, and spirit into balance to support the healing process. I also like learning about the Cosmos. I recommend watching Carl Sagan on his cosmic journey to the edge of the universe. I'm i…
  • Moon Hi Barbara, not many visit nowadays so you may find it quiet! Regarding tarot, a book I dip into from time to time is Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous (Valentin Tomberg). Good luck on your journeys.

As an Iranian who was beaten & jailed for opposing mandatory Hijab,I'm appalled to see Hijab celebrated in the West.I have a dream for all women to be free oneday. Free to choose what to wear, how to live, and what to think. Celebrating hijab destroys that dream.#FreeFromHijab pic.twitter.com/jiJQvjZKFD

Inspiration

Recital of the Sarmouni Brotherhood

S/He who knows and does not know that s/he knows: s/he is asleep. Let them become one, whole. Let them be awakened.

S/He who has known but does not know:
let them see once more the beginning of all.

S/He who does not wish to know, and yet says that s/he needs to know:
let them be guided to safety and to light.

S/He who does not know, and knows that s/he does not know:
let them, through this knowledge, know.

S/He who does not know, but thinks that s/he knows:
set them free from the confusion of that ignorance.

S/He who knows, and knows that S/He is:
s/he is wise. Let them be followed.
By their presence alone man may be transformed.

I who know, and do not know that I know:
let me become one, whole.
Let me be awakened.

I who have known, but do not know:
let me see once more the beginning of all.

I who do not wish to know, and yet say that I need to know:
let me be guided to safety and light.

I who do not know, and know that I do not know:
let me through this knowledge, know.

I who do not know, but think that I know:
set me free from the confusion of that ignorance.

We who know, and do not know that we know:
let us become one, whole.
Let us be transformed.

We who have known, but do not know:
let us once more see the beginning of all.

We who do not wish to know, and yet say that we need to know:
let us be guided to safety and light.

We who do not know, and know that we do not know:
let us, through this knowledge, know.

We who do not know, but think that we know:
set us free from the confusion of that ignorance.

As with our forebears
So with our successors.
So with us.
We affirm this undertaking.
So let it be.

OM TAT SAT

''I am all pervasive.

I am without any attributes,

and without any form.

I have neither attachment to the world,

nor to liberation.

I have no wishes for anything

because I am everything,

everywhere,

every time,

always in equilibrium.

I am indeed,

That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva,

love and pure consciousness.''
