ALL FORMER ADVERSITY
FUELING THIS CORE PEACE
MELTED INTO THE GREAT BREATHER’S BREATH
"...in Holy Fire Reiki, an important concept is that the more the practitioner stays out of the process, the more powerful it becomes..."
I agree and I feel as though we are beyond the time when anyone can "do it for us". I also believe in self-enlightenment, which means exactly what it says:
we can have a teacher, we can have a mentor, we can have a guide…
And we still have to do all the real work ourselves.
Now is the time when those of us
who are in a more enlightened & higher energy place
can only hold the space of love and intent
for those who are attempting to do their own work…
Creating the space and the empowerment
as well as holding the energy for them to be able to do what they need to do
for their own growth and enlightenment.

The life our heart desires
is undisturbed by thoughts
of success or failure,
and simply takes its place
as part of All That Is.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 56
has been minted by our collective mind
and put in circulation by our fears and desires.
It is “phony money”
that we now believe has actual worth.
It substitutes for the rewards we truly want:
doing the work that is ours to do;
seeing the world in simple splendor;
loving and being loved
and never doubting
that we belong.
that it is a natural human quality and leads
to advancement of the economy and improvement of the quality of life.
But we have so twisted the word that exactly the opposite results now ensue.
In the Tao, success is a community experience
that arises when people pursue simplicity, service, and compassion.
All enjoy success together, and all suffer hardship together.
When it becomes an individual pursuit the Tao is lost,
community is lost,
and happiness is lost.
To find our way back home
it will be essential that we each patiently redefine the term, “success,”
as we consider our own lives and the lives of others.
Those who know don't talk.
Those who talk don't know.
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots,
soften your glare,
settle your dust.
This is the primal identity.
It can't be approached or withdrawn from,
benefited or harmed,
honored or brought into disgrace.
It gives itself up continually.
That is why it endures.
