Inanna is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, beauty, sex, war, justice and political power.
It is unimaginably difficult to live hated. Hatred destroys something in humanity that we need to survive. Unfortunately people make choices to hate. Hate is hate. Let’s not pretend it is other than what it is. We all avoid being hated. No one loves to be hated. Hate will never win over what you can become without it. It is possible to live without hate. Everyone needs to find answers for themselves. We can’t be looking for answers for other people and that can’t be our job. Each person needs to be ready to ask a question and to seek the answers. The looking within is everyone’s individual job. It is relevant what we keep and what we let go off in life. Grace guides those who are with grace. I believe in the good in the world. With repetition love overcomes hatred, leading to lasting peace.
Inanna's mythical story is a big part of my life. Now I am going to be able to exit the underworld.
I don’t have any other choice in this, as I am surfacing into less suffering, I don’t have much to say to those who decided to give me these big titles. I think they are nice, I don’t know what my duties will be.
I am selected to be a Sacha Master
I am selected to be a Green Tara
I am going to be proclaimed as someone great in the world of women. I work with darkness and handle a lot of confusion. I help people get clarity in suffering. I am learning more and more how love keeps us all going. Chameli & Arjuna Ardagh are very good people. ✨💖
What is important is not so much how long you live as whether you live a meaningful life. This doesn’t mean accumulating money and fame, but being of service to your fellow human beings. It means helping others if you can, but even if you can’t do that, at least not harming them. – His Holiness Dalai Lama
They matter a lot, secrets and truths spoken to us.
Words of promises and words of what will be in the distant time.
Words, they matter and they can bring healing and they can comfort
and they need to be used with care and good intent.
Where are these words today?,
These words were intended truth and promise of better future for children
These children now have grown into adults.
Where are the fruits of what you promised?
The fruits of my trust & love in how you choose to weave your life?
I look into my eyes in the mirror with honesty and I know that violence and lies do not work. Did you lie? Whatever power you think of? When you certainly assure your words with violence, it is a painful living for us all.
Degradation has no room in my heart.
Where is your integrity towards your family? Where is your love and sense of truth?
When women aren’t able to be feminine, when feminine in all flowering forms is degraded, even the smallest put down is a problem. When flowers are replacing women’s dignity, while shutting down all life and sanity around, and we are told we are all insane, that is not acceptable way to live for anyone. When women aren’t able to hear of profound wounding, When insanity becomes our normal, When in secrecy your envy is invading my privacy, When out of your psychosis you need others to crawl for you, When forgiveness isn’t an option anymore, Due to years of avoiding speaking of your violence and sins You are not my mother, you are not my sister, you are not my friend, you are a destroyer of anything valuable sacred and good. You aren’t anything significant to me.
… Sometimes things in the universe get heated. you know. things get a little awkward. you know. due to thinking. circumstances are moving and there is too much to deal than any normal can handle.
… I will out of something ugly and sinful fasten you a little useful present a little umbrella out of the pain a white small parasol, to hang over your head all the time directing the flow of such things and such nastiness away from you. Like those parasols on sandy clear beaches 🏝. Just like those.
Forget your bread my friends,
remember the holy
revive it, what lives in the lives of all?
The vibrant and creative
expression of our own Mercury when the hidden and diminished
pains are denied.
while the bread you eat
nourishes you for a moment,
the bread of the Spirit
is infinitely fulfilling
The heart of yours which is calling out in longing
needs to know how to find
its proper nourishment
Wellbeing on this earth
belongs to the people who’s souls are fed
by the invisible bread.
The bread of the master
and the power of understanding
the connection and harmony
of holy taste at once realized.
Nourish your starved soul
on the proper food
and provide your naked
the manna from Buddha’s bowl,
without fantasizing of death
and with reverence to life,
embracing the dying with your entire heart
the stench of death need not be with you.
The cries of the pained world
don’t serve anyone anymore
while you feed with the glory of the Master
and his spirit the bread of life
are present always in our life.
You are looking now for your fulfilment.
You are already realized my friend
now you can easily give away your bread
Todays politics, and interactions in the world need to be really less reactive and more reflective and response-able. Cultivating dialog and remaining sensitive to cultural, economical and human values will allow us to be best dynamic thinkers and make our actions positive in the world.
Essentially majority of people in the world are looking to offer their gift fully, they are
looking to live a life that is really of service. They are looking for expression and recognition. When I look around at people who surround me, everyone wants to be naturally useful for others in their lives in their own way, they all look to be recognized, what becomes an obstacle is lack of education and lack of dynamism, lack of humour, compassion or resources and lack of ability to remain present and think bigger than small me.
Are you thinking about solutions?
We are obligated to think about the larger picture until everyone is doing well. We are all part of this world. We honour our heritage and roots and we recognize that we are a drop in an ocean. As a mandate to be able to say that you are a ‘good person’ means you are a person who cares about the global, cultural, political, religious views than just about your own affairs.
The small me is entrapped in the ego and in the fears that are only obstacles. While we allow life to shape us, we have to remember that we are in charge of the circumstances we are co-creating with others, as well as our attitudes, perspectives and ways of being. We always are working with our circumstances. It is unavoidable. We can actively do it with dynamism, or be passive to it.
Becoming educated, getting involved and interested in variety of cultures, topics, and showing genuine interest in others will help anyone be a modern global citizen and thinker, actively participating in life rather than just watching what others are doing.
His Holiness Karmapa is admired not only for his knowledge of the Tibetan Buddhism, Tantras, meditation and good looks, he is recognized for his creativity and high level of dynamism.
Dynamic individuals who have a focus on the positive development for the well being of people on Earth are the ones who are the change makers in todays global economy, politics and religion.
We have to take into consideration that the global era has offered us much more closeness and togetherness via internet, media, social structures and common problems we all face, yet we are still struggling with resolving big issues within ourselves and within humanity.
Dynamism is something that can be cultivated with a lot of work. Meditation is one of the tools that helps in cultivating higher dynamism.
Dynamism is what we need today people to become.
Dynamism is an ability to adjust and adapt and preform in a way that is both a flow and a vessel at the same time.
Soft Power, or an ability to magnetize the right thinking and results without the use of force is where we are going with humanity. When we are cultivating new skills by interacting in dynamic new ways with people of different cultures and when we are learning about ways to be dynamic, pragmatic and joyous in our interactions we then are able to forget that we are working or doing something, we are present and giving our gift, everyone benefits.
Dynamism as an action happens to us all, we are constantly influenced by the environment and circumstances and now we can either be passive to this or actively involved. Some may say that the active involvement means becoming compassionate yet I think compassion is the dynamic action of wisdom being applied to the circumstances so that we are creating better circumstances for everyone else.
Dynamism is what we need to be really into in todays world.
This feminine flight takes place within me
the wings that want to spread I can feel me
opening up and coming out
into the new and over the old
from the beyond and in the same mind
Rikpa has not changed,
the circumstances have aligned
the mystery of it all is really opening up
I trust you.
Through me and the lit candles
and the prayers I have to hold
into the feminine shakti’s benevolent space
in the places that I know are open
and in the places that
I sense are still closed
I sing the songs of awakening
into my own holy home
In the days that are coming,
I rest my head lightly
and the smell of my pillow I part with
while the bags waiting
and I am ready to go
on another adventure
to the land of Buddhas and plenty
The generosity I received in France is amazing,
and I am forever grateful to the people
who showed me that humanity does
exist and that people really know
how to take care of each other, in this time.
I will always call this land my home,
wherever I may be and wherever I land
I appreciate and I always bow to the Buddha
in my Heart and in yours
and to our Holy Dharma and our Sangha.
I love you so much my love.
Do you believe in your dreams?
The ones you have at night?
Do you believe the messages
they contain and how they
turn you inside out?
Sometimes not every night
these dreams just drop on by
on a quiet field, on a horse
and into the conversation they adore.
The dreams they come from so many
and you in the dream
need to remember it too,
it is not at all what you dream
but your attitude and alertness
to the details and to the scope.
Are you holding the vast view?
So she told me the Elder Shamana from Chile
that the dreams they are
the astral dimensions of the healer,
the wisdom there is weaved through
the times we do not recognize
yet here on Earth unless we are prepared
and know how, they do bear fruit.
So we can than say as above so below.
We can align the planes of existence
into the same Middle Path
that wants to express itself so clearly.
In the present moment and in every other way
you are called to reexamine
how you relate to the time and to the space
and when you know yourself within this place.
It is multidimensional,
your energy balances and mixes
with the time of the people
who have you deeply in their hearts.
Do you understand this?
Because you see not everyone
holds you deeply in their heart,
like I hold you in me.
Those who hold the Buddha Mind
Yours and mine and ours
the shape of Peace is like that,
to bring in the global understanding
of the compassionate love
that you already hold in your being,
Buddha Nature and the fresh wakeful mind
they are your home you cultivate
with awareness and the seeds
of this mystery bear beautiful fruits.
Through these times of big changes
through the days of old dying
Emerges the time of a New Dawn
we stand at our own awakening.
For what we will do we don’t know
yet our abilities are strong within us.
Where we have been we know
and lessons are plenty
moving forward is the way of Compassion
it is a way of knowing and understanding.
While we are in this body
and while we have this time
opportunities are coming to
those who reach for the stars,
To those who understand that power
is a gift, that needs to be shared
and developed with care,
taught to use properly
to benefit all
So here we are,
Once again in this story
changing our walk in a new way
for the benefit of all and in
benefiting the planet
Compassionate Understanding Love wins
Healing and transforming, living in Peace
I see a world of Harmony
Teaching and awakening
to walk in One Compassion
Bringing graceful creations into manifestation
for living in natural mind brings in much more
possibilities than you know.
I rest in Rikpa, and I trust there.
Changing perspectives and points of view
allows us all to see everything through
into One Heart, and into Love
For one and for all.
Harmoniously auspicious beginning I see
In this pain of letting go
in this unsustained heart
In this complexity of Life
and unexpected disharmony
In this Love that wants to live
and express itself true
in the opening and falling
and the grace of us two
Love has ways to bring us light
beyond what we can imagine
the clear connection in the Source
of Love and Heart
Mystical dancing of the grace and
the power of Living
the Wisdom of the Buddhas is such
that their prominent compassion
In the century dedicated to Love
knows no bounds
Integrity leads the way and such
miracles are possible
without dying or killing
we can really find a way
To Live In One Heart and in this transition
To Live in One Love and in the kindness
of the Power of Wisdom and Integration
Where the healing comes and there is Grace
For Love in Oneness, really lived is understanding
much more than your mind
it is knowing that there is harmony
internally sustained from the Peaceful Place
The sharing of space with the means of Love
While helping each-other study life
The Inner Garden
The Holy Way,
the Blissful Moments
In The Names of Enlightened Buddhas
Our very existence beckons us to see
that there is really something to uncover in this presence
we need to really be able to notice the essence
and move into the clear vajra dance
This Red Dakini that comes to me and speaks to my heart
in symbols and in colours and in warmth of the night
in the cozy fire that burns so bright
I see now how it lets me to do the things I want
This Padma family lets me be whole in the artistic path
Discriminative Awareness Wisdom arising
from the shifted sands of time
I grow in feeling my way into Loving Oneness
I turn to the West and I can feel the turning
of direction’s wisdom into my heart.
I see now how we need to understand the mind,
and the patterns we carry and the beliefs we have
changing the karmic conditions into new seeds of compassion
how we need to understand the grace of it all with clarity
and how clearly you and I are meant to be this way
untangled and independently growing.
Practicing the Dharma and walking middle path
recognizing subtleties and the elemental grace
these things that few really understand
and the tender touch of grace that covers the leaves
on the grassy Earth when the winds blow harder than expected.
In the secret places inside me
you hide, this love and this surprise
of the things I still don’t understand
and of the things that I know so well.
The living of life that is such a treasure
the beauty of it all its experiencing
the incredible Love that weaves us all
I find myself astounded at this incredible
measure that it takes to breathe once more.
For coming to birth and coming to living,
It takes courage and commitment beyond
the mental capacities and doubtful thinking,
the simple design of perfection
Essence of Guru Dheva & Dakini
are the three jewels: Buddha Dharma and Sangha.
They point everyone towards the four immeasurable
creating the lasting love, equanimity,
joy and compassion for all sentient beings
For when we realize our divinity,
The seemingly unmeasurable story of this form
we can glance over the history of what has gone by
and realize the suffering that is part of it all.
The circumstances have weaved everything in such way to teach and guide you into the essence of things.
Into the perfection of the cloudless blue sky
where there is presence and time and connection
and no schemes and no games.
That is realization.
In the Heart of compassion and when we know the
distance that we had to travel to get here,
When we know that there is a life in the way of Peace
We know that our ancestry can be restored,
back to the distant lands of Zhangzhung.
In the way of Luminosity and
in the way of Oneness
that helps all beings live well
In the Noble healing
and in the four Noble Truths
We find our hearts united once more
Life gives us opportunities beyond measure
if we touch on the light of suppleness
trusting the pulse of the moment.
Listening to the guidance of Masters
and Arhats that speak from direct experience.
The space that they open within us
is immense gratitude for their endless giving
and pointing us tirelessly into the essence of all things.
Knowing your heart and knowing your unique path
are the ways of One Love
It is where we are all going.
