Welcome to the Lotus Blessings Newsletter
My intention in writing this newsletter for you is to provide a forum where you can read some of the highest teachings for this era of human awareness. The idea is to make your spirit sing and to maybe open your awareness even more to the potential for your life. If you choose to send some or all of this newsletter to your friends, feel free, but because of copyright laws, you will need to provide the following: "Copyright to Ruth Angela of Lotus-Blessings.com" Thank you!
My new web site http://www.KundaliniCoach.com is open today in a rudimentary form. I have placed chapters of my autobiographical experiences of Kundaline on this site. For information about the Level 2 Saturday, Feb. 17th & 24th 2007 with Kay Madore in Tustin, CA for EFT training, please see http://www.lotus-blessings.com/EFT.html
Ruth, Encinitas, California.

Swami Shivananda:

  • The best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness;
  • to an opponent, tolerance;
  • to a friend, your heart;
  • to your child, a good example; to your father, deference;
  • to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you;
  • to your self, respect;
  • to all men, charity.
(p. 124) quoted in Dr. Wayne Dyer The Power of Intention Carlsbad, CA: Hay House, 2004.
* My note: Forgiveness is a gift to yourself as much as anyone. Hanging on to resentments and grievances is a huge factor of the ego, and wastes such precious energy that no one now can afford it in these times. I know a spiritual seeming guy who meditates a lot and feels that this has made him some kind of swami who can judge others based on his own level of tapasya (renunciation of the material) and spiritual progress. One day he was looking daggers at me, so I asked him what was wrong and he accused me of "stealing his energy." I had no clue what he was talking about! I had been expecting him to follow up on some promises he had made to me. Was this "stealing?"
I was not sure, but my response was spontaneous: "Tell me, where do I end and you begin?" Does the sun tell the plant it is stealing light? Does a tree think you are stealing its shade when you sit under it? That happened about 5 months ago, and he is still holding all this as some good reason not to be open and friendly. What a waste! The message is, no matter how trivial or great the thing that bothers you about someone else may be, let it go. Release and clear it. His mind is stealing his life and his joy. That is the way of the ego and the mind. It is stealing all your bliss. Take it back!

Eckhart Tolle's latest book "A New Earth:Awakening to your Life's Purpose." talks about the ego also.
"Nonreaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also of dissolving the collective human ego. But you can only be in a state of nonreaction if you can recognize someone's behavior as coming from the ego, as being an expression of the collective human dysfunction. When you realize it is not personal, there is no longer a compulsion to react as if it were. By not reacting to the ego, you will often be able to bring out the sanity in others, which is the unconditioned consciousness as opposed to the conditioned. At times you may have to take practical steps to protect yourself from deeply unconscious people. This you can do without making them into enemies. Your greatest protection, however, is being conscious. Somebody becomes an enemy if you personalize the unconsciousness that is the ego. Nonreaction is not weakness, but strength. Another word for nonreaction is forgiveness. to forgive is to overlook, or rather to look through. You look through the ego to the sanity that is in every human being as his or her essence." p. 62-63 New York: Penguin Books, 2005.

Rajneesh: "What is Shaktipat?" Shaktipat means the descent of energy from beyond. It can descend. In fact it descends every day and this energy chooses for its vehicle a person who is empty in every way, who is utterly egoless. ....So if there is a person whose ego is completely wiped out, who is absolutely empty inside and is a total void, who is doing nothing for you, really who does not do a thing--then through his emptiness, through his void, which acts as a passage, God's energy can certainly reach you....No one can be a catalytic agent knowingly, because the first condition to act as conductor is that you should not know it, that you have no ego. Ego disqualifies a person for being a medium for shaktipat. (p.136 -137) In Search of the Miraculous Vol 1 Bhagawan Shree Rajneesh, Rajneeeshpuram, Oregon:Rajneesh Foundation, 1984.

Wisdom in 13?
Every 13 days, a trecena, of the Mayan calendar, if you elect to subscribe, you will see a newsletter in your mailbox. The Mayan calendar, the Tzolkin, according to various interpretations, is based upon the beginning of the universe and the solar system's relationship to the Milky Way Galaxy which in turn is spiraling around a "central sun" with which we are soon to align. This 13 day cycle will align you with the Mayan calendar, creating a link to the great event of 2012 when many cycles come to an end, and we take a big leap up the spiral. (see below) How that will manifest is unclear, but the acceleration of consciousness is happening now as the Tzolkin predicts. We are in for interesting times and adopting the 13, my lucky number, is one way I hope to harmonize with this event.
*Note: The date for this Newsletter is Tuesday Feb. 6, 2007, Long Count: Long Count: Tzolk'in: 4 Men Haab: 8 Pax
"Men: Hope, commitment, compassionate service, global consciousness, dreams and visions, planetary mind, belief in oneself." from The Mayan Oracle by Ariel Spilsbury & Michael Bryner, Santa Fe: Bear and Co, 1992.
( NOTE: If you put the date 22 December 2012 into the Long Count calculator, it will tell you that this is a miscalculation. Such a date does not exist! Should we be concerned? It is less than six years from now. If you put in 21 December 2012, it shows The End. This calendar is said to date from the beginning of the known universe! Does this give you pause? ) More next newsletter.
Aloha from Ruth.
