Mary chose our instructors with such wisdom, and we are blessed to have access to their thoughts. Each one is happy to share their journey with us so that we may KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS.
Waltraud Riegger-Krause shares part of her awareness and understanding with us in the Fall 2009, issue Number 66, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter. You may obtain your own personal copy at http://www.jsjinc.net.
The Depth and the Spiralling Circle
The universe is the infinite expression of the ONE POWER, which is the cause of all Life. This ONE POWER expresses itself in different forms and laws. If we are in tune with these laws, then we are in rhythm with nature. However, it is our lifestyle that oftentimes forces us to neglect those cosmic laws. For example, if we don’t slow down our activities in wintertime and rest a bit more, like nature demonstrates to us (plants disappear and live in their roots only, animals slow down and sleep), then we shouldn’t be surprised that we are more fatigued and exhausted in spring. Paracelsus said: “The greatest healing power is to be in harmony with the universal rhythm.”
Our consciousness about the rhythms of nature has increased, but at the same time we create a lifestyle which draws us away from living according to the laws of nature. Oftentimes it is in our own hands to make a necessary change in our lifestyle and bring about a bigger change in our life. With the daily self-help of Jin Shin Jyutsu, we have the possibility to see more clearly where we are stuck, and finally change the habits of our daily life.
Mary talks about the different aspects of the universal powers, which manifest from the highest cosmic dimension to the individual human life as Depth. Within each Depth we find several aspects and dimensions of life at the same time. There are the Planets, the Astrological Signs, the Seasons, the Organs and the different body layers of man which are all expressed as Depth. The same universal power expresses itself as different vibrations, coming from the depth of the universe into the depth of Life and the individual Being. The Chinese Philosopher Lao Tse describes the origin of the creation in his words: “Out of non-being comes being. Out of the nameless comes all that is named in heaven and earth. As ever empty, we may perceive its inner essence, as ever manifest, we may realize its mystery. However diverse, all flow from the same SOURCE. Within the original mystery is a deeper mystery, and the gate opens again and again.” These are the “worlds within worlds”, as Mary called it.
