Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis

Image
Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis In the grand orchestra of life, each individual carries a distinct melody that shapes our journey. However, societal norms often mute these notes, leaving a symphony unfinished. This blog post invites you to explore the power of catharsis – a concept deeply rooted in the liberation of the soul and the embrace of raw, genuine emotions. It's not just about letting go; it's about tuning into the rhythm of your inner world and allowing it to resonate freely. Through poignant narratives and thoughtful reflections, we'll journey into the heart of catharsis. We'll discover how the intentional release of emotions can be a conduit to profound personal growth and a deeper understanding of our authentic selves. From the disciplined silence of a military chant to the liberating shouts of Simba sessions, we recognize the transformative potential of giving voice to our innermost feelings. Yet, this is only the beginning. For those wh

Number 2

Image via Wikipedia Cooperation/ How interdependence works/ To make web of life/ By plugging into and understanding the number 2 we begin the exploration of wisdom . Wisdom is not the compiling of information. Wisdom is rooted in getting things to work together. In other words cooperating. The number 2 is described: Element: Earth Polarity: - (negative, feminine, cool, dark, internal) Quality: fixed The 2's element teach us that it is stable and firm. It is confident and strong. From the earth (2's element) we can learn the power of silence and giving. The earth is not judgmental and provides for all. The number 2 is the same. From its polarity we learn that 2 is a power that is cultivated internally. We first need to learn how cooperate with ourselves before we go out into the world and try to promote cooperation . cooperation can not be forced onto someone it has to be willingly taken. that is where wisdom comes into play. By plugging into the #2 we get access to

Slow down

Image
Image via Wikipedia Must slow down process/ Explain system step by step/ For understanding / I started talking about the number system without explaining the system I use. Because there are many different ways of looking at the number system. I call it of course the Gye-Nyame system. The first thing you need to know to understand about this system is that we don't just look at numbers as quantities. We also look at the quality of the number. We discuss how the numbers can be used to assist with your personal SelfMastery™. This is basic numerology  I have just looked at the basic definition of the symbols and adjusted them to work with our Journey. Numbers play a major role in many of our lives. Everyday we are using numbers so why not use this symbols to help get a better understanding of yourself. Each number describes a different manifestation of Axe' (energy). By understanding the Axe' (energy) we can use it when it enters our lives rather than being overwhelme

Number 1

Image
Image by Leo Reynolds via Flickr Interdependence/ Unity is the nature/ Life lived in oneness/ We will be going through the number system for the next few days. The Ha2ku's all rushed out of me during a meeting. I was amazed, but I decided to follow the spirit and work through the number system. I want to stress that we will be discussing ( I'm calling it a discussion because I'm expecting comments... hint hint...)the symbolic meaning behind the numbers. there is no way I can properly cover all of the meaning but I can can get the thought process working, and help on your Journey. The number one is the first number in the system. Many people feel that it stands for independence. In the Gye-Nyame system we describe the number 1 as interdependence. This is the symbol for unity. When we look at the number one we are reminded of the unity of all things. This is the power that keeps the universe working as one. The symbol that can be used to understand the number 1 is the

Good intentions

I now understand/ Why the road to hell is paved/ With good intentions/ I am in in Muskegon  Michigan with some wonderful young people (sending shots out to the mighty Simba & Simsa Nation). I am responsible for for alot of people this weekend so I will drop this blog quickly and illustrate it later so forgive me in advance for the blandness of the next few post. I know many of you have seen the Secret video and probably looked at this Ha2ku and got offended, but this blog is not against the power of intention. What it is speaking on is the destructive power of intentions alone. Many of us have many intentions and just relying on intention alone can cause problems. I know many people who have good intention, but that is it. They take no action toward their goals, feeling as if intention is enough. If you take time to review the Secret video you will see that the important ingredient to making your intention manifest is you taking action. Intention without action is like sail

Tribe as a network

Image
Image via Wikipedia Tribe is a network/ It becomes powerless when/ Connection is lost/ I was driving home and as usual a few thoughts for Ha2ku occurred to me while driving. First the idea about networks which you read yesterday. Then the idea about tribes hit me. I began  wondering and then I ask myself 'how do you create a network as efficient and as powerful as those that occur in nature'. The answer that occurred to me is that you don't. Maybe the perfect network arise at the perfect time with the perfect group . I want to stress that the "perfect" that I'm using here is not the traditional perfect (without blemish, mark or mistake) i'm using it to mean just right. Maybe in trying to form networks we mess the process up and get imperfect events. Maybe we destroy what we are trying to do by over engineering and interfering (these are just some of my ideas, feel free to comment). While enjoying the thoughts that were wizing through my mind . I bega

Networks

Image
Image via Wikipedia Networks are power/ Combine many into one/ To accomplish goal/ Networks are powerful collectives that work together to solve issues. This can be seen all throughout nature. Smaller things coming together to make a greater thing. For example your body is a perfect model of not just one network but several networks working together to give you life. Cells combine to make organs and your organs combine into a body creating something that is powerful. By forming networks we can empower ourselves to live the lives we desire. A healthy network pulls on the best quality and skills of its members to produce high quality outcomes. Each member is able to benefit from the success of the network. The thing that I have found that hold networks together is self interest. The bottom line is that networks form to increase the chance of that group to survive. So every member has a vested interest in the success of the network because they get a direct benefit. Now I know that

Spiritual science of giving

Image
Image by Leo Reynolds via Flickr Tithing is designed/ To make us better people/ What do you give to?/ I am really excited about my book being out so if you don't know, now you do if you have a e-reader (kindle, ipad, and etc.) you can click the link the link to your left. If you prefer to touch the book you can support my efforts by clicking and buying the paperback........ Player's Pyramid on to the blog....... Tithing is designed to make us better people by encouraging us to give. It is unfortunate that this tool for spiritual growth has been hijacked. When we give we sacrifice something that we need. These does 2 things: 1. It helps humble us, by having us serve others 2. It forces us to have to trust in something beyond ourselves Humbleness is a very powerful tool in our spiritual development. It is because we are humble that we are able to learn from others. Not only learn, but it helps us to develop the sight  to see the divine in every being. we also learn

In this great city lived many people who numbered 3. # very wise fools, who spent their days debating the happenings within their great city. They debated the politics, economic policy , laws, rise in crime, poverty, and etc... The first wise fool was blind, but had very good sight. The second wise fool was deaf but had very acute hear

I was excited to face the day, I guess it is because I have finally done something that I have been hesitatant about doing, I finally published myself (for real this time). It all started for me at the end of 2010. I realized that with my blog and stories I had more than enough info to write 5 different books. I finally decided to stop waiting and claim my time and power and focus on completing the projects. I decided to republish "The Player's Pyramid", and forced myself to put my other works in process. I finished my poetry book, and began to gather and write down the stories that I had created or adapted for SelfMastery™. I then decided to pull all of the proverbs and quotes that I have been sending out and compile them into a workbook that can be used with the process of SelfMastery™. I also decided to take my Self
