I Worship Only God-Within, Nothing Else, Says Namdev

Sant Mat Fellowship: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SantMatFellowship

"Repeat the Name of your Beloved, day and night, again and again. With care in thought, word and deed, you will cross to the other shore." — Sant Dadu Dayal

Sant Namdev

Below is from, The Hindi Padavali of Namdev, translated into English by Winand. M. Callewaert, published by Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi.

The name Ram [God]
has entered my heart
placing a golden scale
within.

I worship only
God-within
nothing else
says Namdev.

Love of Ram
is hard, Father
till you see the self
pervading everything.

Your fine exterior
filthy within
cannot be washed
with water, idiot.

God is no idol
nor the proffered leaves.
Namdev does not worship
in this manner.

False worship
cannot please Ram.
It may fool
the shallow
and the blind.

My eyes have turned
inward.
My heart clings
to the feet
of Ram.
says Namdev.

Who can be tainted
once he says Ram?
Sinners become pure
when they cry Ram.

Those who live
in the truth of Ram
should they fast
or visit holy sites?

In remembrance
I found
the right thing to do
says Namdev.

They will surely
find moksha [liberation],
those who say Ram.

Sing Ram.
Narhari, Sri Banvari.
Constantly worship
the feet of Murari.

The guru’s word
is a stairway to heaven.
The heart is Prayag*
where sweet love flows.

I wandered
through the cosmos
in search of the treasure
but found it within me.

Do not come or go
stay at home and
sing of your Ram
says Namdev.

I have pleaded with Ram
I shall not ask another.
My life grows shorter
I cannot waste another birth.

I will not implore another god.
My tongue will taste only the elixir of Ram.

Ram is with everyone,
whether a worm
or a moth
moving
or still.

Ram is my life
other gods are empty and useless
says Namdev.

Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,
Ram,

— Sant Namdev

*Note: "Prayag": Prayag is the ancient name for the city of Allahabad. In Prayag the river Yamuna meets the Ganga. Another river, called the Sarasvati, is also said to meet the Ganga here, although it remains invisible and is believed to follow a subterranean path. The confluence (Triveni) of these three rivers is a very holy site, and millions go to bathe there. In Sant literature Prayag or Triveni is the name for the confluence of three mystic channels in the body, called ida, pingala and susumna. This was an important concept in Tantrik yoga and in Nath lore and it greatly influenced the Sants.

Top 5 Ambient Artists Charts

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update with some news.

First, don’t forget our show tomorrow night at the Blue Violet Cafe in Rochester, PA.  The Blue Violet Cafe is located on Brighton and the show starts at 8pm and it is $4.00 at the door.  Of course, we will have copies of the album along with the Halloween Treats Special:)  For more info on location, see my concert schedule on the myspace page and or visit:

http://www.bluevioletcafe.com

I am also happy to announce some recent chart placemets.  Numberonemusic.com once again had me in their top 5 Ambient Artists Charts.  Only this time instead of being at number 5 like the other times, I was bumped up to number 4.  The Persephone’s Netherrealm Remix of ‘Ghost’ peaked at number 3 on IAC.com’s Ambient Music Charts.  One week into being entered into the playlists on Artistopia Radio, ‘Scarborough Fair’ was # 40 in their top 40 World Music Chart.  Hopefully the song will continue to climb:)

October will bring many new articles on the album ‘Poet.’  Check for an awesome review in Twisted Dreams Magazine, an article in Fireworks Magazine in the UK (plus the remix of ‘Ghost’ appearing on the magazine’s Catz n Claws comp CD), a nice review in the current issue of Outcast Fanzine in Greece as well as a couple others.

October will also bring more airplay.  I’m set to have music from my album played on a MySpace Podcast on October 6 and on Rough Edge Radio’s Podshow on October 1.

I will post the links to the podshows and magazines (and how to obtain them) tomorrow morning.  Now, I’m going to take a nap and get things ready for tomorrow’s show.  With recovering from being sick and having to catch up on everything, I’m pretty tired right now:)

Take care,

Tiffany

Enrich Yourself By Enriching Others: 5 Powerful Steps For The Law Of Mutual Exchange

By Hakeem Alexander

(Exercising Your Mind) One of the foundations of my personal philosophy has been to only engage in transactions that benefit all whom it effects. The key here is that they are transACTIONS. We must take action to create that which we desire. I emphasize this because there seems to be a lot of "magical thinking" surrounding the Metaphysical, New Thought and Law of Attraction movement. From my personal research and experience, "something for nothing" is not a part of this philosophy. Nor can I imagine why anyone would promote such a thing or engage in such useless wishful thinking without effective personal action, which is based upon the Law of Mutual Exchange.

Mutual Exchange means that we must take actions here and now, to provide our world with things that are wanted, needed and useful to others, as well as ourselves. This can only be in the form of personal SERVICE, or products. If we seek wealth for example, we must provide others with more in service value than the cash they give us. We must be willing to "go the extra mile." This does not mean stressing yourself, overextending, or being used by people. It does mean doing your best and giving the best quality of service, or whatever you offer as possible.

Positive thinking is fine all by itself and is certainly better than negative thought patterns. However, it may be the height of self-delusion to think that by our positive thoughts alone, we will be causing things outside of ourselves to change. While it is certainly scientifically proven that our thoughts can and do effect our own bodies, even to the point of being able to create different states of health, mentality, and even influence our DNA; attempting to will the material world around us to order as we wish without personal action is somewhat foolish. We have no right to try to use our will alone on things outside of us anyway. It would be disrespectful to God and the Universe to do so. Our efforts must expand through and integrate all planes; the physical, energetic, mental, intuitive and spiritual planes. Trying to make others do things for us without Mutual Exchange using mental power is just as criminal as doing so by physical force, and can by this account, no longer be considered positive thinking.
 
Besides this, positive thinking is just a beginning. We should be more concerned with affirmative thoughts or, affirmative prayer. Affirmation is much more powerful, and should be offered universally with respect. So here are five (5) powerful steps for taking ACTION when setting affirmations, and achieving goals successfully. It is suggested that you make this into a 30 day scientific, self-hypnosis experiment (s.h.e.). This should be enough to form a new habit. Then you solidify the reality of it by repeating the experiment for another 30 days.

This is precisely how "we become what we think about" and make our "thoughts become things."

First, begin with GRATITUDE for where you currently are. It may be difficult if there is poverty, disease and sadness in your environment, but you are still here. As the saying goes, what hasn’t killed you makes you stronger. So be thankful, because one who knows they have enough, despite all appearances, will surely gain the strength and momentum to move on towards inspiring abundance. The one thing you certainly have the most control over, even as difficult as it may seem, is your own mind. Gratitude is the best way.

Second, set a DEFINITE GOAL. If there was a ship without a captain, crew, starting point or destination, it would barely leave harbor let alone avoid crashing upon the rocks somewhere or being lost at sea. You must set a destination point and a goal to move towards. This removes feelings of worry and fear in many ways by removing the aimless feelings associated with a lack of a definite goal. This goal should be one that creates transactions that benefit all whom it effects; including of course, you!

Third, VISUALIZE, imagine, and daydream your goal in order to impress it upon your subconscious mind. This step when mixed with or associated with the joyful state of gratitude, creates the very necessary BELIEF in the goal and your ability to attain it. Because "seeing is believing." See yourself providing a product or service that is wanted, needed or useful to the world. It is very crucial to practice deep breathing when creating these mental images. This is a very important part of building self-confidence from within.

Fourth, create FAITH through persistence. Create a verbal affirmation or mantra or, better yet, write down your goal. This verbal or written affirmation should be read aloud at least once daily, preferably when you wake up in the morning as a reminder, and give you something to strive for. This will help to add energy to your actions in the present. A more definitive method would be to read it 30 minutes before you sleep and within the first 30 minutes upon waking up. Doing this persistently each day will certainly build faith. Persistence is another word for faith; because if you didn’t have faith, you would never persist.

Lastly, you must take ACTION. The only time and place that you can act is HERE and NOW. The only opportunity you have to be happy is now. Whatever your present location, job, position, state of health or finances -you must act on them now. Work at whatever you are doing with the renewed energy you have gifted to yourself by being grateful, setting a goal, visualizing it, and developing faith. The first four steps will actually increase your energy without changing much else about your lifestyle.

However, a word about lifestyle is appropriate here. We must understand completely that we live on at least three primary planes of existence. We have a body, mind, and if you believe, a spirit. Since we live primarily in our bodies and do a lot of thinking, it would be best that we provide the optimum conditions for these thoughtivities. A basic self care protocol consists of the following elements:

Eat a sensible diet and drink plenty of water, Participate in moderate amounts of exercise such as daily walks, and Take care to relax and rest with breathing exercises, meditation and sleep. Smile often.Combining the five powerful steps with the appropriate self care protocol, will certainly supercharge our vigor and vitality. In addition, self care might just be the simple changes you need to make, to achieve a goal of renewed physical health and mental well being. Begin your self hypnosis experiment, and share it once you have gained some momentum and have realized the power within the five steps and self care. This in itself would be providing a service that is wanted, needed and useful for so many. From conception to action, you have the power to bring into being all that is for the benefit of all whom it effects, inclucing yourself, through the Law of Mutual Exchange!

Exorcism – A Journey Of Acceptance – Part C

This previous experience was very much necessary, in order to progress past karma which held me into contracts. I often had dreams where I was asked to sign contracts and would turn away – knowing it was the old astral agreements that I had once been submissive too. I was finding a spiritual empowerment within me that led me to a place where nothing and nobody could hold me down under their thumb.

I don’t regret the magician experience – I thank god for it! It spurred me into learning a lot about my path and within a year I signed a whole new contract for the next stage of my life. A contract to heal energies and people – from a divine seventh level experience. Also to wake others up about their gifts.

Spirit is always tapping people on the shoulder, saying ‘HEY YOU ARE SO GIFTED AT THAT! You make people smile! You make GOD smile!’ So my new contract was also in regards to reflecting peoples gifts…especially through numerology.

Sometimes people are so deep in mud, that they have trouble letting their gifts shine. So when they are around me I move and clear their energy, through any means necessary. It may take honesty, love, massage, healing and a gift.

This gift inevitably involves an exchange of love for another form of love. Love comes in all sorts of physical and emotional forms. For instance ‘hate’ is love upside down. You can only hate someone if you love them! When I meet people, even over the internet, I feel a wonderful love for them. It wasn’t something i just started to do – I had always done this. But it is a conscious choice for me now – giving love that is! Recieving gifts is a part of the process. The gifts I receive help me to do my work – even the most challenging ones.

For instance… One day I went for a coffee with a Reiki Master. He did not take this endowment very seriously – though he was very talented. He was very sensitive to energies and had a lot of trauma around him. His mother had told him various past life stories which further held him captive to lower energy states. These may have been true – but past lives are not our essence and we have to believe we are more than that in order to heal.

After I left he gripped very hard onto me spiritually. He sent messages saying he had not felt this good since his attunement and he wanted to see me asap, so he wouldn’t lose this feeling i had given him. I told him, all I had done was open his heart (appreciated a blue bird landing near us etc) and he was feeling what he could always feel – his own spirit.

I didn’t tell him, but that night after meeting him I was meditating. I was sitting at a campfire with my spirit guide and that of my young child’s. I remember White Buffalo saying suddenly – ‘Be Strong! Its coming –hold!’. A huge wave of dark energy loomed over me and collided with me. I could hardly focus on my visualisation and my guide spoke me through the feelings i was experiencing and I did healing to rebalance.

What had happened is the Reiki Master had unconsciously sent me his love, combined with the need to always receive my care – he was scared he would lose those special feelings about himself. For once he felt everything was ‘ok’. Needless to say while he couldn’t sleep for the next few days – I was heavily drained from receiving his needy and tainted energy. I was very tired and had to break contact with him – but not before i told him what was happening and how to remedy his situation.

There is a theme i am trying to portray. Its the recurring theme of giving and receiving. Sometimes all people have to give is their sadness or their self distaste. When you give you also open yourself up to receiving, so life is balanced. All energy is this way. But when you work from the seventh level all you have to give is what god wants you to give. There is no need – it is what it is. There is no guilt – it is what it is. I trust completely that god and my higher energies have a divine plan which will see me safely through. I do not do my giving from a need to receive or I would not be able to transform the dark energy I receive in an eye blink.

That is where I went wrong in Part B – I needed so much back then. It was only until i surrendered that the light shone brightly. It was only until i didn’t have needs based on fears –until I only cared for myself and others as the beautiful gems we are – even those who are misunderstood and labelled.

If you would like to read some interesting stories, take a look at this blog

There are stories of transforming elemental energy, meeting ET’s, and accepting self love that I wrote at the start of the year. Please keep in mind I wrote 2 of these at very ungrounding moments.

October Astrology

by eliza de vries

Please watch for my new website www.cauldronoftherose.com to be available soon which will include: Reiki Classes, The Essence of Beauty of Woman, Astrological/Intutive Readings, Full Moon/New Moon Circles and Self empowerment classes.

The month of the Pot Stirring Scorpios is upon us…as the Sun, Mercury and then Venus move into the depths of the psyche expunging and uncovering the unchained expressions of our soul. We may feel these subterranean rumblings erupt throughout the first three weeks of November as all planets appear to square all planets. Translated we have the Sun, Mercury, and Venus squaring a fiery mars in Leo while concurrently squaring Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune (all in Aquarius). Meanwhile Saturn has moved into Libra forming a direct square with Pluto in Capricorn (Pluto being Scorpio’s ruler. this affects us deeply!) What to do with such inner angst while the earthquakes of our soul push and prod us to change ourselves? During such times we have immense opportunities to confront the “thought barricades” which have seemingly halted our progress in the so called outer world. Do you feel angry, frustrated, disappointed or simply downhearted and road-blocked? Now is the time to get to the heart of the matter. Write out your feelings on the 16th (New Moon in Scorpio and a very powerful day). What does your soul long to create? Why do you think it is still eluding you? Is there such a thing as inner peace or are we simply moving from thought form to thought form and constantly in a state of unrest? Joy and anger, sorrow and happiness come upon us by turns…but for these emotions we would not feel alive. In taking time for self examination, the Scorpionic forces ask us to accept and allow ALL to move through us without judgment. to revel in our humanness and celebrate the depths and heights that our soul can reach. All of it is life manifesting in its intensity…After the 22nd we enter the sun sign of Sagittarius..the soul has been cleansed. it now turns its face towards the light..

ARIES: March 21st to April 19th

All of the Scorpionic bubbling takes place in the house of Scorpio compelling you to step into your subconscious thought forms with fearlessness and courage. Change is afoot for Aries individuals. Unavoidable change. In opening your arms to change while letting go of “what was” you speed up the process and shed skins from the past with alacrity. In order to move from the relentless thought forms more “into your body” take regular time outs for exploring nature in whatever way appeals to you. The beauty and style of the physical world is natural. It moves your “head ruled” nature down into the physicality of feeling your body move, exploring your sensual relationship with all that exists around you. and simply letting go of the electronic world and all that that portends. Your sign is sensitive to cell phones, computers and EMF waves. so you must keep the balance by allowing the mind to rest on a regular basis Maintaining balance…it is the key to all!

TAURUS: April 20th to May 20th

Taurus individuals are hit by 7 squares during November forcing shift in the houses of partnership, professional expression and the home. The personality is pushed to examine its personal capacity for role playing. Just what are your attitudes to all of the roles you assume? Through introspection, you uncover the true authenticity of your being. Taurus, being a naturally sensual sign, can be defining his or herself through the outer world more than most. Scorpio, its natural external adversary, pushes at you to unmask your true self in order to free your True Self and emerge without fear. Scorpio energies assist you to examine where you are feeling overly self conscious or blocked in relationships… There is no “right” course of action and some particular set of feelings which will define your true self. Authenticity cannot be identified with any particular role. it happens of itself spontaneously. Through dropping the roles the soul is freed. Instead of roads feeling closed they magically all appear open! A whole new world of experience is coming without the slightest forcing if we stay sensitively aware in the moment to each sensation moving through us…In this open and ungrasping mode of awareness all is received into oneself with all the richness and splendor of the unpremeditated!

GEMINI: May 21st to June 20th

The twins have a propensity to live in a dualistic manner…which is why the personality of a Gemini can sometimes feel perplexing to others. One never knows which twin will “show up.” The twins externalize the polarities of experience and thought which exist in all of us. One moment your attention is deliberately concentrated in a certain area, you begin to select thoughts from that area, the mind becomes fixed and intensely focused, then a set of conclusions are reached. But, in so doing, a completely different perspective is ignored. Gemini must guard against “making a case” for the conclusion which they have so brilliantly reached. There is a completely opposing perspective out there and you can at times box yourself in to superficial thought. This is where the Scorpio energies can assist you. They push you to dive deep beneath the surface of your own foregone conclusions and come up with a completely different perspective. Sometimes the Scorpio friend will irk you or prod you…force you to “get real” as these are the murky intense waters where Scorpio lives all of the time. You lighten up the brooding Scorpio while the Scorpio draws you into the deeper discarded parts of your true self! Enjoy!

CANCER: June 21st to July 22nd

Cancer individuals adore and resent the Scorpio energies all in one fell swoop. Why? Because Scorpio can get under the skin of Cancer as no other..(which is why they often make fabulous sexual partners) causing the Cancer to reveal its innermost darkest Secret Crabby Self. Cancer has the tender underbelly of the Crab and Scorpio must be careful not to prod it too much or the Cancer will simply back up into its cave and become sullen or strike out with its pinchers and not let go! Cancer deeply desires relationship…for it is through the feeling nature (water) that it expresses its innermost soul. This mysterious and sometimes unsought uprising of love transforms not only your experience and vision of your beloved but of the whole world. Your sign is made for love. and must love. and the Scorpio energies push you to consider love this month as never before. For it is through love that the Cancer soul (symbolized by the personal annotation, I feel) can come outside of itself and compassionately care for others. Through learning to love the other Cancer takes on a relationship with “all others..”

LEO: July 23rd to August 22nd

The more we take our will and achieve success the more everything outside of us could seem to be a competitive threat. Every success in some way demands a further success so that the process can lead to omnipotence or great attainments. Thus the Leo soul with its huge force of energy can sometimes get caught up in its own blaze of light and while lighting up the world become enamored with its own ego beyond normal bounds. The Scorpio energies force inner assessment…causing the outer world successes to become just that …reflections of self manifesting in the outer world. Scorpio prods: Now take that same intensity of will to examine and strip away the exterior and get to the soul and its own longing and desires…Leo is a fixed fire sign. Think on this. It embodies the force of ego in physical form. When that ego is thwarted it can cause huge disappointment. But when that will is brought from the inward light to light up the lives of others it is magnanimous beyond all others. Our advice this month. Be still. Listen. Seek out the inner Light…and after the 22nd you will bring joy and celebration to the lives of others in new and wondrous ways..

VIRGO: August 23rd to September 22nd

When the intelligence of the mind becomes the “leader” of your life as can be the case with a Mercury ruled sign it is easy to become the dissector of life instead of the experiencer of life. When we lived from the brain we lose sight of the grand immersion into the feeling nature…we fail to pay heed to the yearning of the soul and its great desire to feel. The squares and oppositions which reel all over your chart give you a monumental wake up call to get out and have some fun…to find something to create beyond your normal criteria. Drive a different route…visit a new restaurant…study something which beckons to your heart. Play more…write down your dreams..in other words let go of the “definition of everything” and move more into the soulful passionate “experience of it”. Virgo is a tactile earth sign. Get a massage. Cuddle up with someone you love. Simply be! The sense of relief and joy which will flood your system will be glorious.

LIBRA: September 23rd to October 22nd

Saturn has crossed the horizon of your solar astrological chart heavily positing itself in the personality angle for the next two and one half years. Translated? You are going to seriously redefine your character paring away what no longer works as you enter a new 29-30 year cycle of life. As this occurs, Pluto sits in a strong square to Saturn in your “house of the subconscious.” What will this feel like? As you go into deep self examination there will be a need for readjustments…it is like looking at one part of the self….seeing what is extraneous and tossing it out…then readjusting how you approach others. You are literally being honed down to a more authentic place within your own Being. People will notice that you seem changed. If you listen to the heart of Pluto which calls strongly for elimination of the negative expression of ego you will be distilled and realigned with your spirit in powerful ways. Your life will become grand and bright. But there is work to be done and it all comes with being serious about introspection. At this time it is not about “the other” but about you…and your growth!

SCORPIO: October 23rd to November 21st

As a Scorpio you have access to never ending power for regeneration surfacing through your personality. As you experience these transformations during November you can see the unconscious planes of existence in which others often delude themselves. You carry a mighty sword of perception…the ability to cut through the nonsense and expose the underbelly of truth. Others may at times squirm in your presence. However rather than using the laser beam to uncover the frail zones through which others traverse, take that intensity and focus it back on your own life. Where do you still feel unutterably vulnerable? What pushes your buttons or causes you to experience the agonies of abandonment or betrayal? When you live outside of yourself there is a tendency to become angry, quarrelsome or even resentful. When such moments occur, you must immediately draw back and examine your role in what is occurring around you. Are you being hypersensitive or obsessive? Delve into the roots of your life…the early lifetime experiences which were so intense and at times unbearably painful. Being the consummate healer dear Scorpio; it is time to access and use this POTENT healing force for yourself..

SAGITTARIUS: November 22nd to November 21st

For the early part of November pull back and examine the past year introspectively. This is your pre-birthday annual reassessment period. Where have things gone awry? Whom have you hurt? What did you learn? Have you frivolously squandered your time? Or have you used the year to broaden your magnificent Jupiterian soul into realms of thought and feeling which up to now have been unexplored? Many of this sign suffer from a childlike Peter Pan approach to life…skirting the major issues of soul development while dabbling in the lives or emotions of others. The evolved Sagittarian is the spiritual seeker par excellence living in areas of soulful experience which constantly bring forth greater and greater growth. Being a Jupiter ruled sign does not mean you live with an optimism which is unflappable. Au contraire, you are here to learn about faith, optimism and generosity…to give away what you have….to develop a faith in the Divine circle of Benevolence…give… knowing it will return…..then give again. After the 22nd the Sun shines brightly in the personality angle….a time of joyful celebration…

CAPRICORN: December 22nd to January 19th

Saturn lines up in your career angle squaring Pluto’s transit of your personality house. The result? An intense reassessment of why you are here, what is your spiritual gift to humanity, where do you need to make changes within yourself in order to manifest another expression of living? The sense of the vast gulf between the ego and the world is beginning to dissolve as Pluto strips away a false sense of self and replaces it with the more “illumined” you. As this is accomplished your subjective inner life seems no longer separate from everything else, especially poignant will be your total experience of the stream of nature. Everything moves towards more integration and harmony. The new sense of well being is marvelous as you move from “facing life” to simply becoming life. Many young Capricorns create a crystallized structure to their lives. Now this structure is dissolving in favor of a boundaryless existence. What an exciting time!

AQUARIUS: January 20th to February 18th

Squares compound with squares in the chart of the Aquarian to bring about immense internal change…the internal change in turn manifests as great shifts in the outer world. Consider this: three Scorpio planets sit in your professional house squaring your Sun. Mars transits through the partnership angle opposing your Sun. while Uranus, Neptune and Chiron continue winding down in your Sign in the first house of individuality. Advice would be to not sit still both figuratively and spiritually. Get those energies moving. Use the force of the challenge to bestow upon yourself a new approach to life. Fixed signs are prone to dig in their heels and hold tightly to belief systems. The planets

encourage you to crack the glass ceiling of all that you have achieved up until now. Set new goals, be limitless and employ the Uranian energies to the fullest!

PISCES: February 19th to March 20th

Scorpio energies flood transformational light into your solar ninth house of the higher mind, travel (inwards and outwards) and endless new philosophical approaches to life. The Piscean journey can at times seem inordinately sensitive to those in your life. Some may wonder why the path of suffering seems so aligned with all you think about or do. But, it is that wonderful sensitivity which at times brings you to the depth of pain which is also your salvation…for you can transcend the veils of Maja and pull forth whatever it is your huge imagination requires in order to move on to another level of existence. Pisces individuals, beyond most others, understand that this life is continually dissolving all around us….that what occurred a moment ago is no more. What the Piscean soul must grasp (so keenly is it aware of past, present and future being intertwined) is that there is only this moment. We must drop the lamentation of our past or the tendency to create a far off dream of what is yet to be. There is only this moment…With the planets so beautifully aligned with your Sun, take time to explore topics such as spirituality or mysticism.
