True Strength

“I love the man that can smile in trouble,
that can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection. ‘
Tis the business of little minds to shrink,
but he whose heart is firm,
and whose conscience approves his conduct,
will pursue his principles unto death.”

Thomas Paine

“Gain strength. Suck up energy. Make a point to appreciate the fragrance of the flowers and the beauty of the sunset. It’s like armor and then you’re armed with an ability to be detached. One is meant to forgive, to forgive and be compassionate.” The meditation tools Kuan Yin offers can be utilized while in the garden or when just daydreaming.

“Just let the mind go and look at a flower,” instructs Kuan Yin. “Clear your mind.”

“I’m looking at the flower and watching how Kuan Yin relates to it,” comments trance channel Lena Lees. “I’m seeing how the act of relating to a flower appears to be so simple. Yet, it takes a tremendous amount of courage to make such a “simple” act important. I understand now how “busyness” can be a real distraction, how it can create “made up” realities. Being present means an absence of past and future. I’m seeing how bringing the mind into the present is the link to eternity and that true meditation is the acceptance of no past or future. I’m understanding how these are amazingly brave concepts, that there are only moments upon moments to be lived.”

“Kuan Yin is showing me something-a tube, I think. I don’t fully understand this diagram. It is as if one end is the past, the other the future. The middle of the tube, the present, is our way, our vehicle for changing reality. You slip into the universe, while living in this dream, this present. Your escape hatch is right here. It is like meditating upon a beautiful place. The more one dwells on the vision of the beautiful place, the more real it becomes.”

“The only way to really utilize your human experience is to practice some kind of meditation or visualization,” states Kuan Yin.” It does work. People really need it. It’s the only way to get through the difficult times. This kind of practice puts one in the “Kuan Yin spirit”. You’re the watcher. Instead of judging, you just see. Whether meditating upon my form or bringing light into the chakras, all these techniques will help in one’s life.”

“It would be best if you could practice being in this moment and then in the next moment and so on. Try to be here, right now. Focus upon a leaf fluttering, light reflected on the waves. Things are more beautiful, afterwards. Make it your own experience. Things will taste, feel better. Colors will be brighter and you’ll feel more alive.”

“A powerful meditation is when contemplating the oneness of everything is to find something’s unique qualities. For example, observing an island’s wholeness and then focusing upon the uniqueness of a single stone. Westerners are dealing with this dichotomy on a grand scale. However, Kuan Yin wants me to emphasize that this meditation is simple but powerful. It’s like physical exercise. One can practice it just once a day or as often as one likes. Other examples to meditate upon (other than an individual stone on the island beach) are faces in a crowd or a leaf on a tree. Each person (in the crowd) is unique and yet (at that very moment) part of the whole. The same is true for leaves on the trees. Practicing this deceptively easy meditation helps each of us to see reality.”

We are all gems… with Faith

“Faith is indeed the energy of our whole universe directed to the highest form of being. Faith gives stability to our view of the universe. By faith we are convinced that our impressions of things without are not dreams or delusions but for us true representations of our environment. By faith we are convinced that the signs of permanence order progress which we observe in nature are true. By faith we are convinced that fellowship is possible with our fellow man and with God.”

Brook Foss Westcott

Put another way…

“There is no such thing as a lack of faith. We all have plenty of faith, it’s just that we have faith in the wrong things. We have faith in what can’t be done rather than what can be done. We have faith in lack rather than abundance but there is no lack of faith. Faith is a law.”

Eric Butterworth

What you place your faith in, becomes your reality… be wise and select carefully.

Shining Through

“Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,
so virtue appears from good deeds,
and wisdom appears from a
pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and
the guidance of virtue.”

Buddha

Scientific Properties: Quartz is composed of silicon dioxide and is one of the most abundant minerals in the world. Sand is mostly comprised of quartz; even the dust in the air is high in quartz content. The most well-known form of quartz is clear rock crystal, and it may be found throughout the world. The largest single quartz crystal recorded was approximately 20 feet long and weighed more than 48 tons.

Yes, crystals really do vibrate! Quartz is both piezoelectric and pyroelectric. It is used as oscillators and filters…from radios and televisions, telephone services to high-tech, industrial, and medical equipment…quartz crystal is essential! Crystals are also now grown in the laboratory using a hydrothermal process, because this process yields pure, flawless crystal for oscillator plates. More Quartz

Metaphysical Properties: “Clear quartz resonates to qualities of loyalty, fealty, equality and “one for all, all for one.” Understanding the properties of clear quartz brings new light to the Biblical injunction, the meek shall inherit the earth. Those who receive and let flow through them the Divine Light in complete and utter humility will flourish on earth, and will literally glow with goodness and light.” Crystalline Communion 2000, Collen Marquist & Jack Frasl

Quartz is ‘the most powerful, versatile multi-purpose healing stone, particular regarding self-esteem, and healing the wounds of a neglectful or abusive childhood. This stone will not allow you to wallow in self-pity over that which you can not change! This stone amplifies prayers, wishes and positive visualizations. Keeps you in touch with your spiritual side, and reminds you that you are a spritual being, having a human experience.’ More Meanings
