As much as my inner water allows me to go with the flow, I can be very particular when it comes to meditation music. I'm always searching for new frequencies, tones and melodies to trigger deeper meditation - but there's a lot of meditation music that lacks flow. After searching the vast abundance of the internet I came across a phenomenal chakra tuneup medley that I'd like to share with everyone.
This ancient message of truth carried on by the guitar legend, Jimi Hendrix, echoes through time and serves as an idealistic goal for the whole of the Human race. Enlightened men and women all throughout history have kept this vision strong within their hearts and minds, spreading their love to any and all they come in contact with. When we allow ourselves to live outside of an egotistical lifestyle, it becomes clear that the relentless pursuit of power or control will only hinder our spiritual progress as a species. There is no need for power in a world full of love with inhabitants that are patient, equal, understanding, with strong hearts and minds. Love, in my opinion, is the strongest force in the Universe and can overcome any challenge so long as we do not allow the temptation of hierarchy to become our motivation.
It's easy for us to talk the talk, but can we practice what we preach at the moment of truth? Can we find the courage within ourselves to turn the other cheek and to act upon a higher consciousness? It is often difficult to deactivate our self defense system we call the Ego, it is the automatic assumption that everyone is out to get you and that no one can be trusted. That being said, I have a recent story that I'd like to share regarding a personal test of consciousness.
This quote is powerful in its simplicity. Some people spend so much of their precious time trying to be someone other than themselves; always trying to fit in with the crowd or do what's considered "cool" at that point in time. Do this because it will get you all the guys/girls, buy this because other people have it too, dress this way or people will think you're weird. These things are all quite to the contrary, I used to live like this and it got me nowhere. Once I was able to love myself for who I am more than my delusion of impressing other people, the universe shifted accordingly. Sure it's good to feel accepted by others, but what truly matters is you do what makes you happy. Diversity is what makes our world so full of life with limitless possibilities, it's what creates the exciting contrast between cultures and what gives us all a unique role on this beautiful world we call Earth. Spend your time discovering who you are, then go out and add to the diversity of our spectacular existence! Add a new flavor to the awesome sauce of the human experience!
"It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand." - Native American Proverb
In my brief 23 years, I have taken note of many reasons it is best to maintain a level of humility in life. When we stay within a place of modest behavior we are less likely to make enemies and more likely to make friends. No one likes being around a show-off or know-it-all who always makes it their goal to be better than everyone else. Always strive to be the best you can be but be mindful of your ego; as it grows so does the space between you and other people. If you really want to impress others then remain soft spoken and be confident in your abilities. Imagine how much more impactful you'll be when you take others by surprise. An air of modesty is also important for if you fail, as it will leave you vulnerable to the ridicule of others for being so full of yourself and then coming up short.
There's also a good chance that President Teddy Roosevelt's quote, "speak softly and carry a big stick", originated from this Native American proverb.
It's important for us to think and act on a positive, loving vibration. Positive-minded individuals are often inspired to express their advice and wisdom through a clever statement. These positive quotes are often brilliant and deserve some reflection on their meaning.
