A Beautiful Woman – You Tube

Our quest for beauty and perfection is born out of our fear that we are not good enough. We have forgotten the old adage that real beauty is found in the human heart. A beautiful heart is forever, physical beauty dulls in only a few short years. Even with the added advantages of creams and lotions, surgery and everything else on offer, none of these can give us real beauty, if the heart is not beautiful. Look deeply  into the face of aging people for there you will see through the lines and the wrinkles, to the soul that in age, seems to be visible on the face.  We call that character and every line tells a story. I believe that is true.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” — John Lennon


A bit about the video The Evolution of Woman.

In the quest for beauty, over the centuries, women have mauled and manipulated just about every body part – lips, eyes, ears, waists, skulls, foreheads, stomachs, breasts and feet – that did not fit into the cookie-cutter ideal of a particular era’s ideal of beauty and perfection.What woman doesn’t want to be beautiful? Women want to please and will go to extreme measures to achieve the beauty ideal.  Women have suffered, sacrificed and punished themselves under the tyranny of beauty. I guess the old adage is as true today as it was way back then, to be beautiful is to be loved.

 

The Evolution Of Woman – Video

Perhaps one of the most beautiful  You Tubes I’ve seen.  A must see for all women.

..

   

Celebrating the unacknowledged and unappreciated life of women in our modern material analytical ego-boosting culture, recognizing her unseen essence and under valued contribution in nourishing and upholding the very fabric and foundation of life and civilization in the planet as the mothers of the human race. The purpose is not to put women in a higher pedestal nor to emasculate men, but to arrive at a deeper understanding of the male-female evolution and gender communication at all levels.

Good Thoughts, Good Habits, Good Death – Anandamayi Ma

154154_332204640232615_420827626_n

On Dying:

Anandamayi Ma’s attitude towards death is far removed from ours.  As she says, “The pilgrim on the path of immortality never contemplates death. By meditation on the Immortal, the Divine, the fear of death recedes far away.  It will serve us well to remember that  In the measure that our contemplation of the One becomes uninterrupted, we will advance towards full, unbroken realization.”

Man’s spiritual evolution is greatly affected by the thoughts he harbours at the time of death. “Just as a leech does not leave its place without hooking on to something else, so the soul at the time of leaving the body hooks on to some kind of new existence according to the state of mind of the dying person.”

Let no one conclude, however, that he can live according to his whims, indulging in sense pleasures oblivious to God, and that at the moment of death he will be able to catapult himself into the Divine presence by thinking the right thoughts. This is a miscalculation, for man is a creature of habit and therefore at death his mind will dwell on those thoughts that have occupied him most during his life.

To substantiate this point Anandamayi Ma told  the story of a greedy old woman, an oil vendor, who lay upon her death bed. All her life she had sold oil in the bazaar. At no time had she granted anyone credit, and never had she given away even the smallest quantity of oil. When beggars asked her for oil, she used to reply: “Not a drop will I give, not a drop.” While she was on the verge of dying, her relatives, concerned about her spiritual welfare, tried, to make her repeat “Rama” or “Krsna,” but all she was capable of uttering was: “Not a drop will I give, not a drop.” This had become her mantra.

This account is meant to show that man’s day-to-day thoughts and activities throughout his life determine his state of consciousness and his spiritual destiny.


Daskalos on Thought Forms

Every thought, emotion and desire creates and transmits an elemental – also called thought-form – that carries on an existence of its own. We create and regenerate two types of elementals. When negative emotion prevails over thought, we have created emotional thought-forms, or desire-thoughts. When our ideas, desires and emotions pass through reason and love, we create reasoned thought-forms, or thought-desires. An elemental can never be destroyed, only disenergized (when no longer fed with etheric vitality). Elementals of a kind collect to form powerful group elementals. If an individual, or a collection of individuals, are vibrating at the same frequency, they will attract such group elementals. Archangels also create elementals (e.g. nature spirits and angels) in the service of the Divine Plan.
