The River and the Mountain


Solid like a Mountain and Flowing like a River

I had a great day yesterday. I was solid and in the flow in both the training I facilitated in LA on RJ and the reiki client I saw. Both were magical with moments where time stopped. A feeling I often get that I posted on Twitter recently, saying, “One day I know I won’t be as amazed by the miracles that keep occurring everyday AND until then I gotta just say, WOW! ” In fact I won’t even call them miracles at that point, it’ll just be life. These are the moments when I am solid and in the flow. Planted in the knowledge of unconditional Love and acceptance by the Creator and and in the flow that my world conspires in OUR favor. Seeking to understand deeply and to be kind guides me. I am in the flow. With solid faith in Source Energy as I breath in and incite flows as I breath out. I felt good yesterday.

Yet the habit energies rose up. My mind is like a super computer that processes trillions of bits of information filtered through my  body and consciousness. In it’s early programming my super computer caught a glitch and got stuck. Memories got stuck in a category/folder useful for the conditions back then. Now the information needs to be upgraded, cleaned out, rearranged, transformed.

The Buddhist practices, as I learned from Thich Nhat Hanh of Stopping, and Breathing and Smiling, along with his poems as guided meditations has been very helpful in calming my habit energies and mental formations so I can have a deeper understanding and transform the energy, the ideas, the thoughts, the habits.

I remember a story I heard from a Deer Park Monastery Nun who was taking care of her dying mother at the monastery. She already had been a nun practicing at a monastery for several years at the time. That means years of practice and of generating mindful energy. (At Deer Park  and in the Dharma Podcasts  I’ve listened to, most monks and nuns say they are mindful less than 20% of the time despite all the practice. Yet many also report recovery from Cancer, some with Western medicinal help and some without, and recovery from other diseases and habit energies.)

She would take care of her mom one day and then the other day her brother would take  care of their mom while she joined the Community. Because the nun was also in charge of registration for a big trip to Vietnam she was only able to join the Community for morning and evening meditation and the rest of the day she was answering tons and tons of emails about the trip. This went on for weeks and was very stressful though she mentioned she was grateful to have spent time with her mom even though it was challenging taking care of someone with dementia.

The trip came and she successfully registered hundreds of people and that night when she got to her hotel room she said she had a nervous breakdown. She began to believe what she called her mental formations. In other words the ideas and stories she was creating in her head. She believed people where angry at her, disappointed, that her mother and brother hated her for being there. She had a mental break down. (For how many years has this been my mental state? I felt like I had so much work to do but also that I have come along way.  I also reflected and uplifted that  I had a lot of practice in being in mindful and receiving beautiful incite through my music, writing and running.  It wasn’t something foreign.)

She mentioned she was grateful for her Sangha (community) in helping her generate mindful joyful energy again, but she also went to get acupuncture and expressed how relieved she felt after the treatment, as it dispersed the energy.

I thought of how grateful I am for reiki and how beneficial it has been in helping untie the knots of habit energy, the hardened manifestations (disease?) of wrong perception not based in deep understanding and kindness for self and others. Reiki, so softly transforms that energy. The more I practice, the stronger it’s gotten. The looser the knots get.  The knots upon knots are gently being revealed to the light with reiki and becoming undone, still raw but healing. Mindfulness and Reiki and the rest falls into place for me on this road, experience, where when I breath in I am the mountain, majestic and solid, and when I breath out I am the river, flowing effortlessly in rhythm.

You In Universe, Universe in You

you in universe

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” –  Heȟáka Sápa, Black Elk, Oglala Lakota Medicine Man.

Black Elk so beautifully relates his and his people’s understanding of a doorway to Peace through the understanding of our interrelatedness. Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh calls it InterBeing. Mayan concept, In Lak’Ech, you are my other me, is another example of this concept of interrelatedness.

I know I also must have heard a poet say,

“The You in Universe and the Universe in You.”
