Well said friend. I feel the exact same way. I am on my toes but calm...senses are high...ready to adapt to the winds of change when the time is right. Let love, truth and integrity be our guide.

Thanks Integrity.

If everyone had integrity and empathy, we could save the world, lol.

Yep, those too.

But, imo, integrity and empathy should be the foundation of all.

Re: Stand Your Ground
Actually you make a simple idea like stand your ground extremely complicated.
 Quoting: WindyMind


Shambhala International is a toxic cult, listed as such on Wikipedia. Naropa University was infiltrated by outsiders. The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics is exactly that. Kerouac was a TI and a meat puppet who was manipulated with drugs, same with the other Beats. Ginsberg was a homosexual, bringing in the concept of "men loving boys" , a trend that runs strong in Boulder, CO. Look at the connections between high level Buddhists in Boulder and their involvement with alternative schools for so called children at risk in Boulder. It's not that hard to see through. Why does a school play poster for one of those schools show a boy WITH NO FACE?

High crimes in the Boulder Buddhist community!!

Re: Stand Your Ground
Verse 22 of the Tao Te Ching also comes to mind...


If you want to become whole, first let yourself become broken.
If you want to become straight, first let yourself become twisted.
If you want to become full, first let yourself become empty.
If you want to become new, first let yourself become old.
Those whose desires are few gets them, those whose desires are great go astray.

For this reason the Master embraces the Tao, as an example for the world to follow.
Because he isn’t self centered, people can see the light in him.
Because he does not boast of himself, he becomes a shining example.
Because he does not glorify himself, he becomes a person of merit.
Because he wants nothing from the world, the world cannot overcome him.

When the ancient Masters said,
“If you want to become whole, then first let yourself be broken,“
they weren’t using empty words.

All who do this will be made complete.

–Lao Tzu

Re: Stand Your Ground
Good speech.
The engravings translate to "This space intentionally left blank."

The prayer is inscribed in an ancient script, rarely used today. It seems to be a philippic against small insects, absent-mindedness, and the picking up and dropping of small objects.

The gate is open; through it you can see a desolation, with a pile of mangled bodies in one corner. Thousands of voices, lamenting some hideous fate, can be heard.
The way through the gate is barred by evil spirits, who jeer at your attempts to pass.

Re: Stand Your Ground
Thank you SS. Just what I needed today as well. I am in the midst of altering my life drastically to be the positive change I want to see in the world. At times it is most difficult. Almost no one understands. But, I find myself sure footed because I am centered in my decisions and that they do not originate from fear. Posts such as this are inspirational and much appreciated.

Jung elucidates, “What future developments are being prepared in the unconscious of modern man…It depends on us whether we help coming events to birth by understanding them, and reinforce their healing effect, or whether we repress them with our prejudices, narrow-mindedness and ignorance, thus turning their effect into its opposite, into poison and destruction.” We are potential spiritual midwives, who by ‘understanding’ the psychic nature of ‘future developments,’ ‘reinforce their healing effect’ and birth ‘coming events’ into incarnation through the womb of the psyche. The psyche, which is pregnant with open-ended possibilities, is the very cipher in which the history of humanity is being written. Jung writes, “The world today hangs by a thin thread, and that thread is the psyche of man.”

Re: Stand Your Ground
I saw this video at another thread and my mind exploded.

"Tight control but the Light passes through.
Have confidence in life, in the strength of your dreams.
Everyone has an Angel at their shoulder there if you look.
When the heart is one with mynd and action.
The Great Day is being prepared, can't you see the signs?
Death doesn't exist, it's just the end of cycles."

Whatever comes your way, any of you, just be your self. If you question, then figure out what your self is, and what you are capable of. Remember, you have not pushed yourself far enough if you have not fucked up numerous times.

Do not lock yourself into agenda. Make your ideologies mold-able until you figure out your self. Do not hold yourself to your own words. It is ok to change your words when you have changes come along that change you.

Experience and divine wisdom from the experiences. Listen and gain knowledge from listening. Act and experience the wisdom gained from listening to knowledge received.

Only that way, will knowledge received be wisdom gained and change amongst your lips be interchangeable to ideologies once believed.

All exterior influences interact with your own sphere of influence. Make sure it is your own sphere of influence, and not a persuasion of someone elses.

Figure it out. Take your time. Adjust. Integrate. Create your own self. Be wary. Be loved.

...but stand your ground.

And yes, the release of attachments only helps growth, and it also helps overcoming parts of suffering.

Re: Stand Your Ground
It gets hard to stand my ground when the reactions of others do not support the truth I know from within. I struggle with desire to have community support, vs, not needing external validation.

How many times do I have to cycle around the same drama until I stand my ground and not care what others say in reaction, or better yet, find a community who support my stance. There is an imbalance there for me.

When I struggle with others not knowing or not trying to understand what I am about, I am reminded that I am my own best friend and to look within. I have found that is the most important relationship I can have and the one that leads to inner peace. When I get to this place, it is only then that others seem to notice and begin to try.

Take heart that others can see you glow.
