I'm really into the meditations! I have gotten more out of the meditations than I have gotten out of any workshop, book or lecture. I have experienced a stillness and depth that I have never ever been to before, and that is really cool!

Just wondering where this thread has been for two years ? Out in the Cosmos somewhere ? Time travelling ?!

Feeling slightly playful, though under pressure, so my posting is thin ...

Hi Dancing Daisy,

My favorite meditation so far has been, for goal setting, "surrender and be carried." Just love it. No stress.
Its one of my favorite places to be. The surrender.

Peace,


Robert

Ya know, P.....
     Luck purrs most of the time now and that is not a good sign!  (Most people think that purring is a happy cat) but cats purr when they are in pain also....it is their way of actualizing vibrational, energetic healing. Poppy purrs sometimes, but usually independent of mommy. She still follows Mommy around....and it is getting close to the thirty years I spoke of. Siss purrs when she is close to me and can knead me as a kitten does...believe me, she ain't no kitten!
     I have always said that this would be the last of the cats that come after the name Marty......but I TRULY cannot imagine what life would be like without a cat or two or three or four or more.
    The little kitten I trapped way back....when I had my house with all the animals in my backyard....a deep gash in her throat....that is my big rolly-polly Luckylee of today. After sooo many years, one can still see the indentation in her fur on her neck, where the gash was.
    When things come to a culmination, I can see myself and my twin, my love,  having many animals that are strays and castaways. And rabbits will try and eat our healing herbs and raccoons will be midnight raiders in our laboratory and possums will be the ghosts of our stories.
But, most of all, there will always be some cats, somewhere, someplace....as they are the most intelligent of all...and can see that which is not seen by us....and can, indeed, speak....but you must look into their eyes....and that is very hard to do....because you see SO MUCH....including yourself, as they see you!

Peace and Paws,
Marty and Sleepyheads Luckyblinky, Poppysandman, and Sissysawinglogs

Edit addition:
Rose.............yeah, ramblin, maybe????????

A good thread I ran across. One of the older ones, but one that can help others, I think. Just posting to bring it to the forefront.

Hi Disa and everyone

Nice to be reminded of those old threads .. Halcyon days! Thanks Disa, Journi, Leo, Cause, Danjummai, Aqua and Marty et al for bringing us back to life a bit here ...

Wonder whatever happened to NothingEverything, we had great discussions hereabouts?!

This isn't really so much about similar sites, but as I am posting, this seemed as good a thread as any, to mention someone called Bruno Groening.

Wondering if anyone else here has heard of him? Maybe Aquarius has ...?

To my shame I must confess I had not until a very old dear friend quite unexpectedly returned into my life the other day and mentioned Bruno to me. He was a great spiritual healer, who lived 1906-1959 (with a rather tragic upbringing).

For anyone who does not know, he developed the practice of 'tuning in', which involved sitting in an open position, in a chair, back straight if possible but relaxed. Palms are open. All one needs is the intention to tune in (Einstellen) and be open to the Divine Healing Stream (Heilstrom). Bruno recommended one tune in twice a day, 10 minutes at a time, morning and evening.

I must say I am not one to normally go in for 'such things' (whatever such things are..!): but I have begun Tuning in in the way he described, and it is truly wonderful. It just made me want to share, especially on the Board, as it resonates so much with the experiences I have had in the UMS meditations.

I think there is a web-site so will have a look and post if there is, but in case this thread times out ... Hasta La Vista ..

Found it, just in time ... site for any interested is:

Ty for sharing this, Paul. I am not (was not)familiar with Bruno until you mentioned him. I will look at the site you posted. I would like to be a person who diligently meditates or tunes in twice per day, but I do not make the time. It is and has been one of my goals to somehow make meditation a daily thing. Just not there yet.

Hola Pablo y Disa (y todos amigos de mi, tambien):
What a coincidence! I was looking into something called the "Treatise on the Seven Rays" when Bruno's name came up! Proof of cosmic resonance?

There were a great many German mystics. Unfortunately, a lot of the "ancient knowledge" that Bruno believed existed (and that was precisely documented) was destroyed by the Nazis and the Russians and the Americans-probably in that order.
German esoteric knowledge has always been strange, just watch the real story about the Ring-if you can stand 12 hours of opera. Ahhhh....Bryn Terfel dear Aqua, music to my ears........

Peace and Pasta la Waista,
Marty and LuckyLee

Hi Marty, Disa et al

I share that problem of finding time out to Tune In ...

But for me it has come to the point where my internal & external life crises are such that I have felt 'forced' [not quite the correct term, Karmically driven maybe better..] to do SOMETHING, although I did not know what it was, short of suicide... then the open hand meditation magicked its way into my life via my long lost friend, you might say ... so I 'chose' to be 'forced' to sit still for 10 minutes (only managed once a day so far) ... and it is proving to be worth the effort.

Apparently, so I am told, Bruno was badly beaten and abused by his father as a small child and went to live in the woods were he showed a particular resonance initially with healing wild animals

Goodness knows, it has always been hard enough to find 15 minutes a day for T'ai Chi - but that forced its way onto me with more regularity too because of arthritis in my hands .... now with 10 minutes Tuning In, 15 minutes T'ai Chi ... I wonder where it will all end ......

As for the destruction of mystical traditions in Europe (cited by Marty) I have often wondered if that is a reason so many wars have been fought in the Middle East region - given its location as one of the heartlands of spirituality. A conflict for supremacy between the material and the spiritual somehow ... J G Bennet and G I Gurdjieff territory methinks

Need to go and Tune In ... or have a cup of tea ...

Paul,

I am glad you were forced to take time to tune in...It definitely IS worth the effort, if we choose to make the effort. I need to make it more of a priority. I'm sure I have the time, I'm just not making the time. It's odd to think of why one wouldn't just willingly devote the time, when we know it makes us feel better. I sent you a PM. Lots of love to you...

Hiya's again......
I don't believe it.......another coincidence or co-incident.....I have become a very serious student of Tai Chi and Chi Gong. It has helped me stave off a very very very serious health problem; and, though not a cure, the disciplines have demonstrably changed matters for the better. I am not "religiously" practicing every day, but it is a fundamental part of my life now. It is not a question of making time for it, it is more a question of making time for those things that are not it.

Peace and kung fu tu yu,
Marty and LuckyLee

Yes Marty, these coincidences must be a sign of Something positive in the ether

I too find those Chi exercises very 'moving' (no pun intended)

I looked on You Tube last night and there are You Tubes of Bruno's work; not that I have become a Bruno promoter you understand .. !!

The making time thing is very interesting

Thanks too Disa, PM received and very much appreciated

Love and Blessings All

Paul

I only just started yoga and have been to exactly 2 classes!Very different styles.I think I like it! They offer Tai Chi and Qi Gong there and I was thinking about trying it, as well.

Hi Disa

For me Yoga never appealed when I was Young ... too much standing around and I never saw the point.

But I heartily commend your persevering, and posting on it (does that sound patronising?)

My own T'ai Chi thing I got into cos of the above, years ago, needing to do something, but not seeing the point of yoga (stay with it..) ... and not being aggressive enough to do such stuff as Karate etc ... so T'ai Chi Chuan, the Supreme Ultimate [fist, in some translations] ..

I needed a Point [ my own limitation]

Now looking back, 60 in three days, one can see one's 'paths not taken' (Robert Frost poem) in so many ways, so many paths.

I only cleaved back to T'ai Chi because of my 'condition', and when I loved it many years ago, its link to the physical and spiritual

But I never adhered to it as much as I could have, should have, might have, if I had known then, what I know now (1981>2014)

But then again, I am minded of Carlos Castaneda's Don Juan, who said, great quote this I think, 'it does not matter what path you follow, as long it is a path that has a heart'. Maybe it sounds even better in Spanish (Marty?)

So, big up to you dear friend Disa, if the Yogic thing takes you, go with it:

One of my favourite all time books is, Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansi Yogananda

Keep the Faith All

Yep. I think we briefly spoke about Autobiography of a Yogi before. I do have it, a gift from my father who lived many years in a place called Yogaville- which I may one day visit. As I was in my first Yoga class I thought during the Triangle pose which we had to hold for what seemed like forever,"What is the good of all this standing in one place?" But when I got home I was exhilarated, and the next day I could feel every single muscle in my body. So, I went again and this time a diff teacher, much more movement and a wonderful class....I'm not good at sticking with anything for very long, so we'll see how it goes.

OH! and Happy Birthday in 3 days

Hi Gang,
I am patiently awaiting an all night into the dawn snow storm.
Did you all know that Tai Chi and Chi Gong are actually martial arts? One is external and the other internal. Did you all also know that, in general, the western teaching method renders both disciplines to be more akin to calisthenics which they are not. They deal with energy in and around the body and how that energy flows.

Peace and Chop Suey,
Marty and LuckyLee

Hi Dissss,

I sorta kinda thought you were in one of my neighbors further south.....we have snow and rain at the same time.....makes it real heavy to shovel. No dreaded ICE yet. We are waiting to see  how the temps are today. Still under a winter storm warning and that will remain in effect until tonight. My hope's that all the folks in Calinah and Jawjah  are warm and well.

Gonna make a loaf od bread and a big pot of soup. AND, gonna hope the electricity stays on (we are all electric).

 

See ya,

Marty the Snowman and LuckyLee the Snowcat

Hello All,
So this is where y'all are hanging out. Looked back at the previous posts here and saw some familiar names and faces (Who could forget Robert?)
Happy Birthday Paul.....
Marty, hope you're not frozen.....
Seriously nothing much going on in the main forum....asked a question about consciousness and no one has even tried or at least made an educated guess.....not like the old days when everyone had something to say!!
Oh well hope everyone is safe and warm......

OMG.......Leo!!!!!
I didn't see the consciousness post. I have been away from the board for a while.
No more Ecuadorian ceviche???

It is snowing again as I write. Should be a "light dusting" this time. We got 1 foot, though Annapolis only got 5 inches. Let us know what's up with you.
