Good morning and Happy Thursday, everyone. May you all have a blessed day. Peace be with you.
It’s important now for you to make time to meditate and contemplate and spend some time alone. Do not allow yourself to spend time in preoccupation and fear. Outward things will be going all right, but what is of most paramount importance is keeping your head on straight.

Anupubbena medhāvī, thokaṃ thokaṃ, khaṇe khaṇe,
One by one, little by little, moment by moment,
a wise one should remove one’s own impurities,
as a smith removes dross from silver.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom, translated from Pāli by Acharya Buddharakkhita

The Moon indicates that things may seem somewhat confusing to you now. You may find it hard to understand where you are coming from, much less what others are thinking and feeling. You need to try to sit with the uncertainty, don’t try to force things or people to do things before they are ready. This card is the “Pisces” of the tarot deck. Today, you are definitely in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don’t know where they are coming from. Also, not that you need to be mistrusting, but it will be helpful for you to realize that when this card appears it is possible that all is not what it seems. If you feel you can’t trust someone, then you probably cannot. Go with your gut. If you are waiting on an answer from someone, it may unfortunately take longer than you would prefer. Try to remain patient.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama calls Sogyal Rinpoche “disgraced” and stresses that nobody should follow the teachings of any lama without question – not even from himself – stressing that they must live up to the teachings of Buddha and what society expects. He also reiterates his advice from 1993 that lamas who behave badly should be exposed in the media. (TRANSCRIPT IS BELOW.)
Recorded at the inauguration of the seminar “Buddhism in Ladakh” @ Central Institute of Buddhist Studies (CIBS) in Leh, Ladakh, India on 1st August 2017.
For more information on the allegations against Sogyal Rinpoche and Rigpa, see:
(With all due respect to the Dalai Lama’s English skills, I have attempted to correct his grammar, without changing the meaning)
“I feel some of these lama institutions have some sort of influence of the feudal system. That is outdated and must end – that feudal influence. Then eventually a lama institution creates lama politics [DL laughs heartily]. That’s very bad.
An individual lama’s disgrace doesn’t matter, but it gives a very bad impression about a monastery or a monk. Very bad. So we must pay more attention.
You should not say, “This is my guru. What guru says I must follow.” That’s totally wrong! Buddha himself mentioned, “You must examine my teaching”. Similarly if one particular lama says something, you examine whether this goes well according to Buddhaʻs teaching or according to the circumstances in society. Then you must follow. If the lama says something; if you investigate and it’s not proper, then you should not follow the lama’s teaching. Even Dalai Lama’s teaching; if you find some contradiction you should not follow my teaching.
As far as Gelugpa is concerned, Lama Tsonghkapa clearly mentioned; if a lama teaches something that is against the dharma it should be avoided and opposed. If the lama’s teaching is in accord with the dharma it should be followed, if it is in discord with the Dharma it should not be followed.
Many years ago in Dharmasala at a Western Teachers Conference, some Western Buddhist teachers mentioned some Zen masters and Tibetan Buddhist Masters had created a very bad impression among people. Then I told them them; these people do not follow Buddhaʻs advice, Buddhaʻs teaching. We cannot do. So, the only thing is to make it public, through newspapers, through the radio. Make it public!
These lamas, although they don’t care about Buddha’s teaching, they may care about their face [points at his face, indicating shame]. I told them at that conference, almost 15 years ago I think. Now, recently Sogyal Rinpoche; my very good friend, but he’s disgraced. So some of his own students have now made public their criticism.”

Courage gives life to our little and big ambitions, life decisions as well as miracles. Without courage, it is not only impossible to survive in this world, living becomes more of hardships. Like meditation and chromotherapy, Crystals for courage when used on the higher chakras are seen to fill the wearer with confidence and surety.
It is not unnatural to meet people who are perpetually afraid of something or the other. If you suffer from perpetual fear, gemstones can show you a new way of life. In fact, higher chakra gemstones are specifically known to build self-confidence and courage in the users.
Being afraid of things can build an alert and cautious personality that is rooted in solid ideologies. However, if your fears are restricting you from giving your best shot at life, it is unhealthy. Fears are all unhealthy according to spirituality. It limits your potential by…

Good day, everyone, and a Happy Aloha Monday. Peace be with you.
The Fool is always an indicator of newness, as well as the purity and open-hearted energy of a child. This is generally considered a positive card, with the caveat that it’s important to take time to be sure that you are “looking where you’re going.” Generally, this card indicates new beginnings that have some deeper spiritual meaning. For example, starting a meditation practice, or a relationship, as opposed to buying a new pair of shoes. The appearance of the Fool can depict an important “fresh start”.
The Fool according to Daphna Moore represents the Hebrew letter Aleph, meaning ox, the element Air, bright pale yellow and the planet Uranus. Most people, including Daphna Moore believe that The Fool represents on the human level, the pre-incarnate spirit. I’d also discovered in my studies that Paracelsus, the famous alchemist believed that the body came from the earth: the soul from the stars and the spirit from God. If Paracelsus were taken literally then he would appear to be saying that the Spirit and Soul are from different places….
Beloved St. Germain,
I ask you to surround me now in your sacred transmuting Violet Flame of Divine Love,
and to actualize the qualities of the Seventh Ray of Ceremonial Magic,
as I experience my initiation of the “Birth of Christ”.
Surrounded in your celestial Violet Flame of Protection and Transmutation,
And the Golden Flame of One Unity Consciousness,
I now heal my deepest wounds, and human mis-creations,
letting go of all earthly ego allurements, cosmic karmic patterns,
false beliefs and judgments,
through transmuting, healing and loving all aspects of my Self.
I now merge with my Beloved I Am Presence,
and experience my Self as a Christ Conscious Being of Light,
a sacred transfiguring Flame of Divine Love,
in service to Mother Earth and all Her Life.
