Peace of Mind

Whatever disturbs your peace of mind, is not the truth

“Whatever disturbs our peace of mind, whether it appears as anger, fear, depression, frustration, guilt, or regret – all negativities, they all result from the original wounding that we feel has separated us from our essential Self – who we really are – and has left us feeling isolated and disempowered.” (Brooks, 2019)

Walk in Peace;

Walk in Beauty

until we meet again…

Rioters: Destroy The Buildings In Your Minds, And Not Your Cities

“If the young are not initiated into the village, they will burn it down just to feel its warmth” [African proverb]

France strength and unity
How you judge the rioters is a reflection of you

Unfortunately, in our society there is no ‘initiation’ from boyhood to manhood. Even our young that go to university they are still ‘Taking’ and it still takes a few years before they ‘Give’ back, so they are already quite old compared to other societies. The rioter’s burn as it gives them a lift because of their lack of self-esteem. The looters are also stuck in ‘Taking’ they have not moved onto the ‘Giving’ level.

This is all a reflection of our society where our Government ‘Take’ power and our banks and corporations ‘Take’ money by amassing wealth, and we as individuals loose faith in politics and feel poorer but strive for the same. I would prefer people destroy the buildings in their minds but what would be interesting is how do we start a modern initiation practice to go from the Taker to the Giver who takes responsibility? Without painful practices of the past like Sun Dancing involving piercing or teenage circumcision.

How you judge the rioters or looters is a reflection of you. If you see them as an angry mob then unconsciously there is anger in you. The reason being is that we’re One with the Source, which is perfect including rioters or looters. So we have to take responsibility for what we project outwards. Peace from within spreading out. #YellowVests

For you are drunk,

And we are at the edge of the roof”
