Freedom

There are 3 Freedoms:

1.    Freedom from

2.    Freedom to

3.    Freedom

The first two are ego freedoms. Freedom from is a reaction; the ego asserting itself. It is a negative freedom.

Freedom to is the positive equivalent. It is not against anything as is freedom from. Having the freedom to is a great boon; yet both are aspects of the same thing.

The real freedom is the third kind, transcendental freedom. It is neither freedom from nor for. It is simply freedom. One simply enjoys being oneself. It exists for its own sake and is an end unto itself. This third freedom occurs only when the ego is undone.

The ego is undone by being aware of how it functions. There is no need to fight against it. As awareness comes, the light comes and ego disappears like the darkness. Then there is FREEDOM.

Emergence of the Divine Feminine

Say What?

Is there an un-divine feminine? Is there a divine male or a divine masculine? Or an undivine equivalent thereof? What’s going on?

It started around 2700 years ago with matriarchy replaced by patriarchy. Then it got worse.

It would take only a few hundred years so that by the first century, all Jewish women were considered the property of men–with no rights, no role in society except childbearing, and no education. Christianity didn’t do anything to improve the situation and Islam later made it worse, both with societies that advocated the traditional role of subordination and silence of women as the ideal. Fortunately, in real life the women of history were neither subordinate nor silent.

What had happened?. Whose fault was it?

Let’s blame it on Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E) or say it really began around 2250 years ago. One of the fathers of our culture, student of Plato, founder of modern Western philosophy, inventor of logic and tutor to Alexander the Great, Aristoltle pointed out for us, and we have been hypnotized into believing it until very recently that”

The female is

n   “softer in disposition…

n   more mischievous…

n   less simple

n   more impulsive

n   more attentive to the nurture of the young…

n   more compassionate…

n   more easily moved to tears…

n   more jealous…

n   more querulous…

n   more apt to scold and to strike…

n   more prone to despondency…

n   less hopeful than man…

n   more void of shame…

n   more false of speech…

n   more deceptive…

n   more retentive of memory….”

Whereas the male is

n   “more spirited…

n   more savage…

n   more simple…

n   less cunning…

n   most rounded off and complete….”

(The above is from the material of Barnes, J. (1982) Aristotle, Oxford: Oxford University Press as reported by Gerd Gigerenzer, “Gut Feelings,” 2007, Penguin Books (USA)}

These “facts,” totally debunked and overturned by modern science, still pollute our world and cause untold misery for both men and women. Likely less than one percent (1%) of the people who even think or have thought about it, are aware of the equality of the genders, or of the numerous test results that measure such things.

Since a belief is just a thought we continue to think, these early thoughts (the opinion of one man!) were reinforced over time. A special bit of “no thanks” goes to Swiss Psychiatrist, Carl Jung, founder of analytical psychology (1875-1961 who reinforced these early notions. Over time they became our beliefs through which our perception of the world was created.

Now, today, is best possible time, understanding the errors of the past that created a whole world of woe, to

n   dismantle those beliefs so men and women can free themselves from the limitations of the past and the aspersions cast upon them,

n   break the hypnotic trance that denies loving interaction with all genders and

n   move forward into a more loving and satisfying relationship with the future.

Before we get too involved in the blame, please remember that blame is endless. If we go far enough back, we can blame the Gulf oil spill on the dinosaurs or on whatever killed and compressed them. Ever since Aristotle, however, we have been ignorantly projecting characteristics onto both sexes that have nothing to do with their genders. In doing so, we have not just limited ourselves our enjoyment and the progress our society could have made, we have been involved in war and unending strife as a result.

Affirm the equality and validity of both genders and their choices made according to individual nature. Do so to change your mind today and note that men and women, (women and men) are, by nature equal expressions of infinite variations of all characteristic hereby previous generally referred to as gender traits.

Hooray for the emergence of the divine masculine and feminine!

For those who would like more “proof,” start with reading Myths of Gender, Biological Theories about Women and Men, Fausto Sterling, A., (1992) New York: Basic Books

Special Article on Money and Abundance

WHAT IS IT, THIS MONEY?

Dr. Tom Goode

Money is anything that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts. If you have a great deal of if, you are considered to be rich: (affluence, abundance, ampleness, bounty, copiousness, fortune, myriad, opulence, plenitude, plenty, plethora, profusion, prosperity, prosperousness, successful, thriving, riches, thriving, wealth, fortune, good circumstances, easy circumstances; independence; solvency., provision, livelihood, maintenance; alimony, dowry; means, resources, substance; property; command of money, income; capital, money; treasure).
Then there is what we really have: Fiat Money.

Fiat money is that which a government declares to be legal tender, even though it has no intrinsic value and is not backed by reserves like gold and silver. The value of this fiat money depends upon how well an economy can produce concrete things and services that people want. This is why printing new money cannot ever create wealth for a country. 
Money is valuable because we want it and we want it only because it can get us a desired product or service. When we have enough of it, we usually think of ourselves as abundant. Of all the definitions of abundance, I like the one Bashar gives us:
“Abundance is the ability to do anything you need to do when you need to do it; trusting that what is happening takes place for the purpose of your abundant expansion and soul’s unfoldment as part of the process brought on by your desires as cocreator.” 
–Bashar—www.bashar.org

So rather than money—an idea–let’s continue to focus on abundance. We do this because when money is determined to be the only door through which abundance can enter, then the door closes. When all manner of abundance is perceived to be equally, (according to Abraham) Abundance comes through the path of lease resistance. Or as A would also suggest, an exclusive focus on money is automatically a focus on not money.

“Two new research papers argue that money can buy life satisfaction, but not happy feelings — and that earnings beyond $75,000 a year don’t buy a lot more happiness. (And)…above a certain level of stable income, people’s emotional well-being is constrained by other factors in their temperament and their life circumstances.”

http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/110009/how-much-money-do-you-need-to-be-satisfied

Let’s use the term Abundance to take advantage of the association with MONEY that most people have with the word. By utilizing this phrase it is intended that the teachers of breath would be able to reach to, assist and enable those for whom it would be of benefit. 
{I confess, I didn’t know how difficult it would be for people to follow 3 steps to better breathing: Abdomen* Belly*Chest.}
So I am going to take another approach. I am going to teach you the Abundance Breath. This is a special Bonus for you and not in “the best book you have yet to read”: Breathe and Grow Rich. www.breatheandgrowrichbook.com}

THE ABUNDANCE BREATH

Surrounding us is Life Force energy. In the Abundance Breath, you breathe in an abundance of this self-intelligent force that knows exactly where to go for the greatest benefit in each individual mindbodyspirit system.

1. Open Mouth and begin to inhale, stretching and using muscular action to direct the lower abdomen and pubic arch forward and allowing the lungs to fill from the bottom; 2. With mouth still open, use muscular action to stretch the ribs in the back and below the sternum as your inhale deepens and your back begins to stretch; 3. With mouth still open, use muscular action to stretch your spine, chest and neck in a upward direction; 4. When reaching a fully stretched position, Relax, allowing the muscles to soften, and all of the cells, all of the organs and even the glands, to relax. There is nothing to think about. There are no plans. There are no regrets. There is only the Abundant Life Force entering the body and integrating as you breathe and relax. Repeat, stretching and expanding as you inhale, allowing the muscles to go soft as the body exhales.

Start with 10 Abundance Breaths in the morning; again in the evening and throughout the day. Increase the number of breaths in each set and the number of sets depending Upon How Much Abundance You Desire

Will you get more MONEY as a result of performing this exercise? Not necessarily and you will be a great deal more comfortable and energetic while you are attracting, manifesting or enjoying it. Perform the Abundance Breath with the feeling of abundance. How would you feel IF you were Fully Abundant? Breathe that feeling in repeatedly and see what happens. Breathe like you already were abundant…repeatedly.

That’s what they said when I suggested doing things differently than was outlined by the Rishis. How did I dare go against the teachings of these saints and sages?

Well, first of all, I didn’t go against them and actually agree with many of their teachings, particularly those emphasizing the need for the inner development of a human being.

Second, instead of disagreeing, I was actually expanding their teachings, updating and making them relevant for a modern world with our growing stressors and pressures.

Who were they? The Rishis developed the Hindu beliefs (1000—600BC) and philosophies. According to Deepak Chopra, A Rishi is a seer or shaman to whom the Vedas were revealed thru states of higher consciousness. Post-Vedic tradition regards the Rishis as “sages” or saints, and it was the Rishis who authored the entire knowledge of Ayurveda. Rishi means the one who knows (Sanskrit).

Their culture was one in which humanity was suffering from many diseases. Their solution was to sit together and go into a meditative state, transcending to the (more…)

He didn’t know what he didn’t know and so came up with the idea of creating something so useful, powerful, transformational and evolutionary, that by giving it away so more people could have access to it that would mean that more people would use it and the many people who used it would be so grateful, appreciative and enlightened that they would send money so, jointly, we could financially support the caue of humane treatment for animals including humans.

People themselves are perceived to be innocent, just needing education, and, once they “got it” he was expectant that  they would surely contribute to the cause. It was one of those “Save the World” things that people often report during their awakening process. Some go off on it and make it their life-work.

As elegant as the idea was in his  mind, the practical experience was far different. It would turn out to be a version of the classic tale of the wandering spiritual pilgrim off on his quest for himself.

The story behind Full Wave Breathing begins about 30 years ago—1980—with an  overwhelming need to share information gleaned from experiences of illumination. Allow (more…)

Assuming things continue as they have been, in 100 or so years, mankind will likely accept the holistic, unified mindbodyspirit system and directly address the underlying cause of illness. By then, science will have “proven” the existence of soul to its satisfaction and in sufficient degree that the establishment will communicate the findings to the media. This will enable “the great middle classs” to self-care and self-heal and provide guaranteed health without fear. Until then, trust in the Force and continue Full Wave Breathing–as an exercise it heals; as a practice, it transforms.
