JUNE 2020: Jewel in the Heart

Om Mani Padme Hum - "The jewel is in the lotus." 

We've had quite a journey this year and it is difficult to believe that we are approaching the halfway mark of 2020! Time is taking on new meaning for many of us. As we move toward the new aeon that, in fact, is what will be shifting the most for us: the perception of time. We are stepping out of time. And not in some airy fairy, ungrounded way. In a very real way, clock time is already beginning to lose its grip on our lives.

"How we spend our days, is, of course, how we spend our lives". Annie Dillard

As we move deeper and deeper into the information age, more and more people are finding and following the rhythm of their own heart and leading their lives from this space. Ironically, this place moves so quickly that it affords us the ability to SLOW DOWN and live our lives from the heart, and not just the head.

"To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else." . Emily Dickinson

As our values change, so too will the focus and pace of our lives. As we reorient our lifestyle to accommodate the things we hold dear, such as peace, health, joy, love, creativity and connection, we begin to savor life. This allows us to experience the now and the beauty of eternity through a much longer strand of magic moments.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” ― Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, The Little Prince

This month, June, is about accessing the Jewel of the Heart. We will be exploring all the paths that lead to the discovery of this precious treasure within us all. And that path is traveled through all of our relationships. This entire month will be devoted to the exploration of all our relations, with our Self, with the world, with our creator, with our families and our significant others.

"The jewel in the lotus has many meanings, but the most profound meaning is that your own authentic buddha nature is the jewel. You are in the center of the mandala of your universe of experience. No matter where you go, you are in the center of your universe. Deep in your heart is the indestructible drop of consciousness which is the individual mindstream that leads to Buddhahood. May you speedily and joyfully realize your own Buddha~nature and be forever free from suffering and never be apart from true happiness."
