Bhagawan Shri Ramana Maharishi "Death and Sleep"
Why go to birth and death to understand what you daily experience in sleeping and waking? When you sleep, this body and the world do not exist for you, and yet you exist, the same you that exists now while waking. It is only when you wake up up that you have a body and see the world. If you understand waking and sleep properly, you will understand life and death. "
Paramahansa Yogananda "Freedom from Death."
"When you die, your physical body of 16 elements disintegrates, but the 19 elements of your astral body remain intact. We have passed through death and rebirth so many times, why be afraid of death? It comes to free us."
Swami Prakashanand "For a Painless Death"
At the death time what you have done in the past many years of your life, they all come together. If you have been deeply involved in attachment, anxiety, frustrations, all those things, they all come together and pain the soul very much. To have a painless death, one has to think of God very deeply and that preparation takes a long time. "

Poem by Jai Maharaj - Jyotish of Vedic Astrology at http://www.mantra.com/jyotish/

  • When I look above,
  • the sky is a blue falling wave.
  • Below, I see
  • where a flower should grow.
  • Before me, I see
  • man as a house moving along a road.
  • Behind me, I see
  • a meandering mosaic of tree stumps.
  • Outside myself, I see
  • delayed trains and long waiting rooms.
  • Within myself, I see -- no one
  • only a red sun rising from the blackest pond.
  • And when the wind blows,
  • I am gone like yesterday's dream.

"Ho'Oponopono: Hawaian Problem Solving" by Aina Badua Student of my ENG 100, Dec. 1985 at Windward Community College. ( Nalani "Aina" BADUA, BS in Early Childhood Education from Chaminade University, and Teacher at ASSETS School in Honolulu.)

"I would like to share how Tutu Kane conducted ho'oponopono in our home. ...'Prior to conducting ho'oponopono all family members are asked to agree to certain conditions most important of which are those of an attitudinal nature" (Shook 16). We formed a circle and sat on the floor. In the Pule Wehe(opening prayer) Tutu asked the Hawaiian Gods, Ku, Kane, Lono, and Kanaloa as well as the Christian God to join the family and to become a part of our ho'oponopono. I still use this invitation in my own sessions today, because this was the method taught to us by tutu. Kukulu Kumuhana stated the problem. The discussion that followed laid out the problem in detail. Each person had a chance to speak without interruption from other members of the circle. It was demanded that only the truth be told, one was not to hold back or hide anything. This procedure is called oia io, "Truthfulness, lay out the problem don't hide what's on your mind, look eyeball to eyeball" (Simeona VA). The person talking about the problem was not allowed to look down at the floor or up at the ceiling, rather one had to look directly into the eyes of the person being spoken to. This was one way Tutu could tell if the truth was being told and he dealt harshly with those who dared to try fooling him. Sometimes, other problems erupted from the original one, so Tutu would have Mahiki "Each successive problem was discussed and corrected like the peeling of an onion." (Pescaia 225). If the discussion got heated and out of hand, Ho'omalu(rest period) was called to let everyone cool off and calm down. Prayer was said to re-open the session..."so harmony, peace and love can be achieved" (Simeona VA). The Mihi was the time to repent and apologize. Usually the Kleenex boxes to wipe the eyes and blow noses were almost all used up. Everybody hugged and kissed each other shedding tears of joy and happiness. There was laughter, forgiveness and a great uplifting permeated the atmosphere. Pule Ho'opau (closing prayer) ended the ho'oponopono, the problem was oki (cut or severed) sent to the ocean depths never to be discussed again. "

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 for Sunday June 16, 2007. Tzolk'in 4 Chik'chan 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. If you are interested in Kundalini, I am starting up a new web site called KundaliniCoach.com and putting various articles there about my experiences. Aloha, Ruth
Aloha from Ruth.
