Although it is a goal to get beyond the confines of the mind and its thought processes, it is the minds function to solve problems and challenges presented to it. So concentration which is a key element of meditation is practiced in focus to the techniques used in meditation.

We eventually will find that most people are not capable of focusing their attention enough to understand spiritual principles or deeper thoughts that would enable them to function at a higher state of consciousness.

It is useless to spend too much time with such people because they can waste your time with useless accusations and blaming you or someone else for their circumstances and plight in life. Regardless of what circumstances people face we can find happiness within us. If we are called on to face situations that are so difficult that it would be quite unlikely to find any joy in them, at least we can find meaning in the purpose those circumstances are developing.

I believe that is why Amma said that many times she could take away the pain people experience, but it would also take away the importance of what they we’re learning on a spiritual level from such pain in the circumstances they find themselves.

I believe most of us, including myself, would rather experience pleasure than pain so we live to a smaller or greater degree for the pleasure principle. But there comes a time in our sadhana that we recognize the pleasure we experience today may be the pain we experience in the future and the pain we experience today could be the emancipation we feel in the future. And even beyond this thought process, the joy we experience from spirit can surpass the pleasure/pain syndrome of the duality we find as integral to this life.

Once when asking one of Amma’s nuns what it is like being in the physical presence of Amma, she told me it is not always so pleasant as you’d think because the Master (Amma) is also in a lot of physical pain. Seeing her in such ecstasy and feeling some of that ecstasy from being in her presence I can better understand the Nun from Australia and her comments. It is somewhat like Brother Anandamoy talking about being in the presence of Paramahansa Yogananda and he felt bad for him because of his being in a wheelchair towards the end of his life. Yet Brother felt such ecstacy being in his presence. Knowing what Brother Anandamoy was thinking at the time. Paramahansa Yogananda made this comment to him; ‘ Don’t worry, you’ll get yours too.’

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” - George Harrison

Protection Prayer

Master's arms are around me. He is guiding me and supporting me every moment of my life.

I need never fear, for God and Guru are with me at all times whether I realize it or not.

Master is filling my mind with positive ideas, spiritual thoughts, and practical ways and means to live my life.

I love Him, and He loves me unconditionally.

nor I am never alone, not will I ever be alone, for He is with me, a part of me. He is in my calm thoughts and in every positive inner prompting and idea.

He does not want me to feel afraid or any other negative emotion. If I am temporarily stuck in a state of negativity, Master is still with me. I have only created a temporary shadow between us.

If I cut my finger, the perfect life force within me immediately begins the healing process. Similarly, when I seemingly cut Master off by focusing my mind on some form of negativity, He immediately seems to heal me with His love, strength and understanding.

I must say after reading the above entry I feel this is very true of my life right now. Amma is coming back to the United States after several years of absence; one primary reason is Covid 19. If there was ever an opportunity for me to see this Master again in person-as she will be in several cities of the United Clones of Merrytunes this summer-it is now. And the Eagle 🦅 circled me many times as I was 🏊‍♂️ swimming in a nearby lake.

While driving home tonite I saw two raccoons climbing a tree together.

The Raccoon’s Mask

The most recognizable, physical trait of the raccoon is its mask. The spirit animal’s classification as a shape shifter originates with this symbol of transformation.

It is important to remember no one is exactly as he or she seems. This power animal’s mask is symbolic of humans’ ability to adapt or shape shift in different situations. Masks have been used for centuries by every society to achieve altered states. The art of mask making has been has existed the world around and has been used for celebration, ceremonies and magic rituals. Once behind a mask, a person can become someone or something else. The mask helps us change who and what we are to who and what we want to be.

Having the raccoon as your totem is a helpful in revealing all the facades of your personality. The raccoon spirit animal’s presence in your life may be helping you to transform into something or someone new.

Seeing raccoons on the street where I live and having a dream about a raccoon today awakens me to the possibility of wearing a new mask-shape shifting-and seeing if the persona will fit me for a awhile or more.

Thanks for the prayers. It is getting cold, early mornings getting close to zero, will go beyond that soon. Just had 3 tonne of redwood delivered last week for our wood-heater, when I was really sick we relied on our gas ducted heating but it is now so expensive. The wood-heater has a much nicer heat too.

I don’t think I knew that it got that cold 🥶 near the ocean, but I suppose you are close to the South Pole. I wonder about the redwood you have. Redwood tress are scarce in the states and protected out west because they get so big there are actual roads that go through some of them. Im talking about the kind that sometimes live more than a thousand years. But we also have red pines here in the Midwest.

Im quite a tree enthusiast. That is to grow them, to provide more oxygen in the environment. Yet I also understand the need for them to heat small places. I have a small solar panel and solar unit. Solar power has become more and more common here and also wind turbines.

“Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude. However, as soon as anyone tries to ‘Impose’ their beliefs on me, attempting to convince or convert me, I walk away; for this is someone who wishes to control my mind, NOT Enlighten it. Remember, Learn from Everyone you meet, but let NO ONE ‘Tell You’ what or how to think.”

Better to stay out of mind, it tells too many stories. Let us relax a bit meditate and turn off our churning thoughts.
