Our Nature – Poem by Jay Kumar

Trudging through the once grand palace of concrete, vines Sprouting this way and that Cracks in the aged stone hiding the so-called magnificence of this once great land This civilization bit the dust Thinking of a time where we lived only on the land, Greenery surrounding us, Only can we read in books. For it is no more We tried to shut it out And now it behind to overtake Like the vines cracking through the concrete ruins. Let us embrace this! Not shut it out It is who we are.. Let us be at peace, like the monk, one with his surroundings All the technology in the world means nothing… If we sell ourselves out to attain it Slowly the wilderness takes back over.. Until the ruins of concrete are no more, Than sand and dust which crack and crumble beneath our feet Waterfalls gush into ponds and lakes As fish swim excitedly Animals and humans living together In our home, that is the wilderness We are at peace again… We are one..

The secret power of rituals (1)

Rituals run in our societies as deep as blood runs in our veins. Rituals can be defines as a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order. Rituals are very personal expression of the human soul. The extension of ritual is spiritual meaning that through the unique expression of rituals we are able to connect to our inner self which helps us realize our self as well as understand the entire expanse of the cosmic force. Through ritualistic meditation Buddha could achieve self-realization and ultimately Nirvana.

Rituals are boundary less and do not follow any definite rule. Although a lot of helpful and inspiring information on various rituals and practices can be found in books or internet, I personally believe that the most powerful ritual is the one, you create yourself. In your own style, in your own words with your personal intentions.

Rituals do exist since humankind and they always have been a very important part in humans culture and society. They were created and shared to help man connect to his higher self, his soul and eventually to God. through rituals a possibility was created to connect to the world unseen to naked eyes…the spirit world. Ritual allow the human soul to connects, expresses and embody what is within, and offers it to the world.

The reason for a ritual

IMG_2249Rituals have always been used for various reasons like giving thanks, ask for healing, support or guidance, and also to fulfill our longing for insights and spiritual guidance. And also the desire of the human soul to make itself seen. Rituals are very powerful and helpful as they carry spiritual energies, which can have a huge bearing on our personal lives.

The most important tool to create a ritual is your own mind. Your intentions should always be good and also go along with your unique soul’s desire. There are some sayings about rituals and magic and I do agree that they are manifestations of the law of cause and effect. “Whatever you send out will come back to you!” „Respect the free will of other people!“ „Like attracts like!“ If you keep these in your mind while performing a ritual, then you can be rest assured that you are heading in the right and positive direction and that no harm can befall on your or others by your practice.

Thanksgiving Ritual

Probably the oldest and most profound is the ritual of “Thanks Giving” which our ancestors celebrated a lot specially during the harvest time in autumn. As food was not always available like today, therefore people were even more grateful if they had enough. I think that we could always give thanks as we do harvest everyday the fruits from yesterday.

The more we step into the power of gratitude, the more we attract exactly what we are so thankful for. This is not magic, more over the natural law of attraction. Raising our vibration by giving thanks and showing gratitude towards abundance, we will automatically attract even more of that. This can also be done by writing thoughts of thanks and saying words of thanks. But even more powerful is the creation of a ritual in which we embody our gratefulness into the material world. The more effort and desire we put into the ritual (that does not depend on the size of the ritual, but on the energy) the more it will create a change in our lives. Doing a ritual takes time but especially in our fast changing and busy lives this can be a real chance to take some time off. Focusing on your intentions, preparing for your ritual, doing the ritual and finally experiencing the energy shift is absolutely great. It also helps with your own well-being as you give your soul the time to connect with the source. I did say before that there are no rules how to do a ritual, it is totally up to you and your own spirit.

Over the years I have been a part of many ceremonies and rituals with people from different cultures, religions and spiritual convictions, and everyone had their own preference, routine, intentions, reasons and order. Some of them were really touching and others were more mechanical, that often depends on the vibe of the person who leads the ritual, but also on your personal attraction. You might feel drawn to Pagans or Buddhists rather than to South American Shamans.

It is totally up to you, don’t limit yourself by your personal cultural, spiritual or religious background. I experienced a real openness from every other culture and spiritual practitioners when I asked to take part in a ritual. As long as you come along with respect and an open mind you will attract the same in return. So why not go out and look for some inspiration in other cultures or spiritual belief systems? Your soul doesn’t have any rigid point of view about spirituality. Whatever feels right for you do that.

Julie – 6th Universal law – The Law of Bodhisattva

This video is all about the 6th universal law, the law of Bodhisattva. Bodhisattva is Sanskrit and describes a person who has overcome the desire to reincarnate for earthly experience. But comes back to earth to assist and helps to free the soul of others. I personally believe that we can enter the state of Bodhisattva when we step into the power of being of service for others, the animal or plant kingdom. This is the moment when the ego disappears and we find ourselves fulfilled in the moment when we experience oneness in our actions.

Gimme Shelter – What if the system fails?

Just imagine you would wake up tomorrow morning and your landlord tells you that you need to pack your stuff and leave your flat/house immediately. What if you would lose your job from one day to the other and not being able to pay your mortgage anymore? What if you had to deal with physical/emotional/sexual abuse from your partner and you just decided to leave the situation forever?

How would you feel? What are you going to do? Calling your friends, neighbours and family members? What if they are not around? What if no one wants to host you or help you out? Where would you go?

This scenario seems so unlikely that many of us never think about it, we don’t worry about our tomorrow. It’s all save, secure and somehow it might always has been like that. We have a job, or we own the house we live in already, so nothing to worry about anyway. But just imagine for any weird reason your life would change from one day to the other, from one hour to the next? What would you do and where would you go?

Similar stories I heard, when I spent a day at the beach in Southend Victoria to help raising money for rough sleepers in the area. Homelessness is still a taboo in our society and more than often we try to avoid things we fear. Finding ourselves walking by the guy who sits on the ground with his dirty cloth and a bottle of beer in his hand. Shaking our heads because we don’t understand how he could end up like this? We are blind for the lady who runs around begging for some change as she probably only wants to buy drugs.

Where to go?

Wondering why these people not go in a homeless shelter, to the job center, council or any other stationary place where they could get support.
The problem is that there are places but our system has become so confused and complicated that no one really knows what to do. So they send the rough sleepers from one place to the other, give them appointments in 2 weeks time and don’t offer any emergency plan. That is why these people end up on the street without any help from others. Often there is alcohol and other drugs involved because many of them were faced with traumatic experiences in the past which brought them to a point of real desperation.
In this case a homeless shelter is not enough for someone who lost himself/herself in drug addiction. These people need therapy, time to heal, time to be supported, looked after and furthermore someone who really cares.

Homelessness is not only something we should be sorry for but furthermore it is an experience no one ever should go through. The home is where the heart is but our automated system has no heart. There is no compassion and no time to listen to individual stories that needs to be told if they want to be released. Sleeping rough is uncomfortable, cold in winter, leaves you hungry but also it makes you feel unworthy, separated from rest of society and lonely.
Even I experienced the ignorance of some people who were not even interested to take a flyer we tried to spread around. I wonder in what times we live in if charity is a word that we are already sick of? Everyone just wants our money we think and turn our back around.

Our system has failed with its anonymity. But it also made us less responsible as we do believe that the system will fix problems we don’t want to be confronted with. But money does not solve every problem, especially when the so-called helping hand is hidden behind tonnes of forms and paperwork. And still we hold on to the system, trust it and call it save, just because we never ever have been in the situation in which we need help immediately.

Light at the end of the tunnel

But there is light at the end of the tunnel and this light is called YOU and ME. We all have the ability to make a difference to someone else life. It’s not about the money it’s about compassion, the will to help and to be there for each other.

I spent the day at the beach in Southend Victoria with people who do want to fill the gap, the lack of the system. People who give their time, their energy and their heart to make a difference in other people’s life.
The Warrior Soup Kitchen in Southend is a non profitable group which provides hot food, drinks to the homeless in their town twice a week. In addition to that they give out toiletries, warm clothes, sleeping bags, hugs, offer shoulders to lean on and more than often an open ear for everyone who is in need. All founded out of the pocket of the volunteers without any support from the government so far.

Therefore it is even more important that everyone sticks together, we are all in the same boat. We all live on this planet and we all deserve a shelter and compassion no matter what. If you live near Southend and you want to donate things, money or your time to help that great folks making a difference just watch out for the Warrior Soup Kitchen. Or join their group on Facebook here…

This might be an inspiration for everyone out there, a reminder that every little penny counts, every hour is worthy, everyone has equal rights and we all should make each other aware of that.

I really would like to thank everyone who took part in the awareness event on the beach in Southend, everyone who put some change in the buckets, everyone who showed up and made us believe that there are people who do care.

I am so glad I met so many lovely people with such big hearts and all the rough sleepers that opened up and shared their stories with me. I give you a big hug and see you soon!!! Loads of love, Julie

Impressions from Warrior Soup Kitchen awareness event – rough sleeping on the beach:

Cecil the lion – Are we all guilty?

I am still traumatized and try to fish for the right words to express what I feel. I read the articles about Cecile, the lion that has been killed by an American dentist. Shocked, hurt, horrified I find myself asking if that guy really does belong to the human race? How can people do such things? Unable to believe that this guy really is from this earth plane. I still can’t believe that someone is able to do such an awful thing and smile happily after in a camera. What is wrong with these people? Asking myself if they have a heart, a soul, or anything that makes them human?

Afterwards I read through the comments just below the article and found myself in a state of real desperation. I read things like: ”This guy should be punished and slowly been killed! He is a murder, I wish they would hunt him as well no matter with what kind of weapon! They should slaughter him and let him just rot in the desert of Africa”
Again and again I read through the article and the comments, trying to understand what was going on here. Being horrified is one thing but wishing another ones death is as horrible as killing a lion. There is no difference. Scared by the hate, the heartlessness that comes from these people’s mouth and their hearts. Of course I am hurt and horrified that people go on hunts and kill innocent animals just for egoistic reasons. But on the other hand side I am even more horrified that other people comment on such an event and wish their fellow-man should be killed as well. In this moment I was very close to lose my belief in mankind.

How can someone be horrified and angry at something and in the next moment wish the same thing to someone who did it? In my opinion that doesn’t make me a better person nor does it change anything, furthermore it makes me as worse as them. Are we on our way back to “an eye for an eye” and “violence can only be justified with violence”? Yes rage makes blind but its time for us to open our eyes!!!

No longer we should be blinded by hate, no longer we should look in another direction because we don’t want to face the truth that there is something going wrong in this world. We are all part of the problem and we are all part of the solution as well!!!

Today I went out for lunch and I had a burger. Normally I am a vegetarian but only for today I felt like having some meat. I did not feel guilty nor like a murder, just afterwards when I was sitting in the silence and thoughts entered my mind, it came to me. Thinking about Cecile, the guy, the comments and suddenly I felt like pointing the finger at myself saying: “You have eaten meat! You are a murder!” And I did, I ate meat and at this moment I haven’ t even thought about it.
But an animal had to be killed, only so that I could to have it for lunch today. I was so unaware, I ate it and felt alright afterwards because I had no personal relationship to the animal. I was raised this way, people eat burgers, steaks, meat everyday, millions over millions of kilo and no one says anything about it.

No one blames the butchers, the slaughterhouses nor the companies who keep all the cows, pigs, chickens whatsoever in narrow cages, till the day has come when they need to be killed, so that we can have our burgers, steaks, breakfast eggs etc. No one cares, no one says a thing but when someone kills a lion, we are horrified, hurt and wish this person death.

This cruelty, this brutal, heartless behaviour is not something that exists only in certain humans, furthermore it is located in all of us but we hide it behind unawareness or unconsciousness. We walk through this world as we were blind for all the things we don’t want to see or address. We eat meat, buy cheap stuff from China and we are consuming more than we would ever need in a lifetime.

I am not saying, that it is ok what happened but I want to say, it’s easy to point the finger at someone else. Blaming the wrong, the bad, the horrible and heartless in others but not within ourselves. When we pass by the homeless people and not even look at them when they ask us for some change. When we have our burgers and buy our cheap stuff made in China even we know that these products are not made under human rights conditions. When we judge our fellow-man because they do not look or act the way we would them want to. This is because looking in our own backyard is so much more difficult.
I wonder if all the people who wished the dentist death are vegetarians? If all of them are only buying organic stuff and no things that are made in China?

The event with Cecile can be a big wake up call for all of us. A wake up call that we become more aware that we have changed and we do not want anyone killing lions in Africa for fun. But also a wake up call, to point the finger at ourselves and have an honest look where we can improve.
Are we still buying stuff from China because its cheap? Do we know how many children work in China for the stuff we buy today in the supermarket for less? Are we aware of the impact we could make, if we would deny genetic modified food, cheap clothing made in India or not choose the next smart phone? Or decide only to buy local?

We are running around in a world in which cheap is king and the more we consume the better. We are not even aware of what we eat and most of us don’t even care. We complain about the government but we are too lazy to change ourselves but when a dentist kills a well-known lion we are all horrified and wish him to death.

I really want to know what is wrong with us? Are we awake or we still dreaming of a better world? Do we still give the power to other people and let them make the decisions for us? Are we going to claim our power to raise our voice and make a conscious decision, so we can be the change we want to see in the world?

May Cecile be our wake up call to remind us, that we urgently need to take a look within our own hearts and see if everything is alright with the choices we make!!!
