As I read Gregg Braden’s Secrets of the Lost Art of Prayer recently and began playing with being peace I found my ego needing something to do. It seems that my ego particularly likes to have pictures to watch and gets frustrated and fidgety when I am not “seeing” what I am experiencing. I am no longer willing to fight or give in to the ego so I asked for a visual I could use to soothe the ego and still be in line with my intention of being peace.
So, what is acupuncture? Acupuncture is one aspect of Eastern Medicine. Eastern medicine is based on the belief that there is a flow of Qi (energy) and Blood through the body. Any interruption of this flow can lead to any disease state such as pain, asthma, diabetes, psychiatric disorders, chronic emotional states, and even cancer. The Qi and Blood flow through the body via a series of channels or meridians. Along these channels are the acupuncture points. These can be seen as way stations where the flow can be accessed and redirected as necessary.
There is a facet of our existence that all humans share, it determines what they perceive as truth as well as shapes it. Some of us may call this thought, some may call it feeling but it is actually something between the two. A cohesive framer of both feeling and thought that people often times seem to ignore as a conceptualized point of view remaining only within internal thought processes. I speak of perspective. No mater how you look at it, perspective (and its existential counter-part “perception”) is what shapes the reality we live in. For instance, if you view earth as a single organism, this will definitively shape how you do things on earth as a part of it. You may be less inclined to litter, treat others as you would treat yourself (as they would be under this framework), or hold special significance to the feeling of love, a primary unifying force on earth. The simple holding of a perspective shapes actions, thoughts, and feelings towards others and yourself.
It is 1943, the German forces are occupying the land of Italy, and Jews and intellectuals are being persecuted by the fascists. Many seek safety and asylum in the city of Assisi, known as the city of peace. The Catholic Bishop, Alberto Nicolini, surreptitiously took in all those seeking refuge, hiding their Jewish identity papers on his own person under his cassock and illegally printing new papers, giving them identities as citizens of Assisi. Many of the families were housed in convents where the nuns provided food and shelter and even assisted them in celebrating their Jewish rituals. The citizens of Assisi accepted these “new citizens” readily, collaborating in their “open hiding.”
Consumers, what do you know about your herbal product?
The practice of medicine is legally restricted in the United States to those individuals who have a license to practice from the state in which they are providing service. Generally speaking, the practice of medicine is defined as diagnosis and prescription, with a focus on the treatment of disease (please check with your local state to see the exact legal definition). Many professionals who already possess a license to treat patients, such as medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, physician’s assistants, and nurse practitioners, are starting to incorporate herbal medicine into their practice. And even some are including herbal medicine in their practice will by employing an herbalist to meet the needs of their patients with this specialty.
We all want to find a peaceful journey on our path in life. A peaceful journey includes an abundance of unconditional love and joy. It is easy to practice peacefulness when we are on vacation or in a nature environment. The challenges occur when we are surrounded by outside circumstances that seem unjust, unloving and unfair. This is when our peaceful journey tends to be shaken and chaos occurs both internally and externally. In order to have a peaceful journey on your path in life, it is important to learn how to hold divine love for self and the divine and acceptance, compassion and goodness for all living things especially during the chaos.
“I’d be more spiritually centered if only I didn’t have so much to do in my life activities.”
“If I had more time for myself, I’d also have more time for God.”
“It is easy to be spiritual on a mountaintop! Gurus have an easy life! I’m sure if he or she had my job, commute, spouse, housework and children peace wouldn’t be so easy!”
“There are not enough hours in the day to be practice spirituality as I would like to do. I’m jealous of all the people who can make spirituality his or her personal career. I wish I could be independently wealthy just so I could be more spiritual!”
