I’m thinking…

…about laws

“Then a lawyer said, But what of our Laws, master?
And he answered:
You delight in laying down laws,
Yet you delight in breaking them.
Like children playing by the ocean who build sand-towers with constancy and then destroy them with laughter.
But while you build your sand-towers the ocean brings more sand to the shore,
And when you destroy them the ocean laughs with you.
Verily the ocean laughs always with the innocent.

But what of those to whom life is not an ocean, and man-made laws are not sand-towers,
But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness?
What of the cripple who hates dancers?
What of the ox who loves his yoke and deems the elk and deer of the forest stray and vagrant things?
What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless?
And of him who comes early to the wedding-feast, and when over-fed and tired goes his way saying that all feasts are violation and all feasters lawbreakers?

What shall I say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the sun?
They only see their shadows, and their shadows are their laws.
And what is the sun to them but a caster of shadows?
And what is it to acknowledge the laws but to stoop down and trace their shadows upon the earth?
But you who walk facing the sun, what images drawn on the earth can hold you?
You who travel with the wind, what weather-vane shall direct your course?
What man’s law shall bind you if you break your yoke but upon no man’s prison door?
What laws shall you fear if you dance but stumble against no man’s iron chains?
And who is he that shall bring you to judgment if you tear off your garment yet leave it in no man’s path?

People of Orphalese, you can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Middle Finger)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the middle finger and its relationship with the rest of my mind and body.

The middle finger has relationship with the 3rd Depth. 3rd Depth energy harmonizes and binds the 4 elements, keeping them in order. Mary said that the 3rd Depth is the quintessence, essence energy which supplies the body with energy of the 6th Depth (the Blueprint). The essence (life force) is transported in the blood, invisible but goes everywhere. 3rd Depth is the psychic energy binding the soul to the body, bringing our being into manifestation. It’s the energy for creation, the first in the source and the last to manifest in the body. 3rd Depth lives in both the invisible and visible world at the same time. Safety Energy Locks 16-22 are born in 3rd Depth.

The attitude for the middle finger is anger.

The index finger side of the middle finger is related to Gall Bladder Energy. The upper third of the index finger side of the middle finger relates to SEL 6; the middle third of the of the index finger side of the middle finger relates to SEL 13. This side of the middle finger is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The ring finger side of the middle finger is related to Liver Energy. The upper third of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 3; the middle third of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 12. The base of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 25. The ring finger side of the middle finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The middle finger corresponds with anger (“giving someone the bird”), irritability, indecisiveness. Physical symptoms are eye or vision problems, fatigue, circulation problems. In balance, one increases the capacity for compassion.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the middle finger gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance.

This is a simple overview of the middle finger. There is much more to learn and understand, and I encourage you, wherever you may live, to find a 5-day basic seminar being taught in your area and register to take the class. You can find the information at http://www.jsjinc.net.

I’m thinking…

…about buying and selling

“And a merchant said, Speak to us of Buying and Selling.
And he answered:
To you the earth yields her fruit, and you shall not want if you but know how to fill your hands.
It is in exchanging the gifts of the earth that you shall find abundance and be satisfied.
Yet unless the exchange be in love and kindly justice, it will but lead some to greed and others to hunger.

When in the market place you toilers of the sea and fields and vineyards meet the weavers and the potters and the gatherers of spices, ~
Invoke then the master spirit of the earth, to come into your midst and sanctify the scales and the reckoning that weighs value against value.

And suffer not the barren-handed to take part in your transactions, who would sell their words for your labour.
To such men you should say,
“Come with us to the field, or go with our brothers to the sea and cast your net;
For the land and the sea shall be bountiful to you even as it is to us.”

And if there come the singers and the dancers and the flute players, ~ buy their gifts also.
For they too are gatherers of fruit and frankincense, and that which they bring, though fashioned of dreams, is raiment and food for your soul.

And before you leave the market place, see that no one has gone his way with empty hands.
For the master spirit of the earth shall not sleep peacefully upon the wind till the needs of the least of you are satisfied.”

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Index Finger)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the index finger and its relationship with the rest of my mind and body.

The index finger has relationship with the 4th Depth. 4th Depth energy builds the muscle layer of the body. 4th Depth connects us with inner wisdom. Only Safety Energy Lock 23 is born in 4th Depth.

The attitude for the index finger is fear.

The thumb side of the index finger is related to Bladder Energy. The upper third of the thumb side of the index finger relates to SEL 5; the middle third of the thumb side of the index finger relates to SEL 22. This side of the index finger is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The middle finger side of the index finger is related to Kidney Energy. The upper third of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 8; the middle third of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 10. The base of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 11. The middle finger side of the index finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The index finger corresponds to fear, mental confusion, frustration. Physical symptoms include digestive problems and muscle problems like backache. In balance, freedom from fear is restored.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the index finger gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance.

I’m thinking…

…about joy and sorrow.

“Then a woman said, Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.
And he answered:
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Some of you say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “Nay, sorrow is the greater.”
But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.
Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.”

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Thumb)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the thumb and its variety of relationships with the rest of my body.

The thumb has relationship with the 1st Depth. 1st Depth is our “container”, forming our skin surface and is related to our physical growth. Safety Energy Locks 1-4 belong to 1st depth.

The attitude for the thumb is worry.

The lateral (outer) side of the thumb is related to Stomach Energy. Also, the upper third of the lateral thumb relates to SEL 1; the mid-thumb relates to SEL 19 and the base of the thumb relates to SEL 21. This side of the thumb is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The medial (inner) side of the thumb is related to Spleen Energy. The upper half of the thumb is related to SEL 9; the mid-thumb is related to SEL 16. The medial side of the thumb is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The thumb corresponds to worrying, depression, anxiety. Physical symptoms include stomach aches, headaches, skin problems and nervousness. In balance, one feels a sense of security.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the thumb gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance.

This is a simple overview of the thumb. There is much more to learn and understand and I encourage you, wherever you may live, to find a 5-day basic seminar being taught in your area and register to take the class. You can find the information at http://www.jsjinc.net.

I’m thinking…

…about Psalm 15.

The Message translation (Eugene H. Peterson) gives a contemporary flavor:

God, who gets invited

to dinner at your place?

How do we get on your guest list?

“Walk straight,

act right,

tell the truth.

“Don’t hurt your friend,

don’t blame your neighbor;

despise the despicable

“Keep your word even when it costs you,

make an honest living,

never take a bribe.

“You’ll never get

blacklisted

if you live like this.”
