I’m thinking about being fully present…


“The purpose of therapy is not to remove suffering but TO MOVE THROUGH IT to an enlarged consciousness that can sustain the polarity of painful opposites.”
— James Hollis

How do we support others who are suffering?

When we understand how soul works through us, we begin to see how pain generates the impulse to change. We see that our aim in supporting someone is NOT to get rid of their pain and suffering. Instead, we want to assist them to understand what the pain is trying to teach them — to find meaning in their distress.

Often, all we need do is be fully present to them. It also helps to be present to our own experience and genuine in our feelings. Living our own truth helps create the space for the other person to live theirs.

I’m thinking about destiny…


“The significant business of your life is alive and well, awaiting discovery, within your very soul. You and I were born to come into ourselves as complete and distinctive persons. Accepting this, we build a valuable life.”
— Marsha Sinetar

What is the significant business of your life? What is your purpose? Andrew Schneider says that purpose “is more than just having a direction. It is about one’s place in the universe. It is the journey of finding that place and being there and living fully whatever that place is. It is your own unique place that nobody else has, had, or will have.”

How would you describe your place in the universe?

“We become powerful in the face of our fears when we have a sense that we make a difference in this world. Affirmations of purpose communicate the truth that we are all meaningful participants in this Universe and that we are worthy of giving and receiving love. Some affirmations of purpose are:

– I know that I count and I act as though I do.
– I spread warmth and love everywhere I go.
– I am a healing force in the Universe.”
— Susan Jeffers

“The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
— Joseph Addison

I’m thinking about meditation…


“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
— Buddha

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts and emotions that play out in our minds.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 4

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 53, Summer 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

“At center of head [heaven] and inside umbilicus [earth] seventeen [spirit] body function energy intermingles.” All Combined Energy-Timing blends the poles of Main Central with my individualized spirit. Herein develops a new generation of energies. Page 43 lists four of our 144,000 Special Body Function Energy. These great-great-grandchildren of Trinity reflect their Source, which is BREATH: ascending and descending, spiraling, expanding and contracting.

When is All Combined Energy-Timing? I’ve often heard in class that each aspect of 12 Organ Function Energy becomes “leader” for a two-hour period of the day. Between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m., “WE IS STOMACH”. All the nutriments, the 11 other aspects of Organ Function Energy, and the body itself nourishes the Stomach Function Energy. During these hours Stomach Function is being absorbed into my total Being. Gazing at page 43, I wonder: is it through All Combined Energy-Timing that Stomach Function is absorbed into the total Being? Is 8:00-10:00 a.m. when Stomach Function comes home to the Main Central through the 2nd Thoracic? Mary says that each aspect of 12 Organ Function is sent to the solar plexus, cleansed, re-energized, and sent back to the body’s function. Is it through All Combined Energy-Timing that Stomach Function nourishes all 144,000 Special Body Function Energy, thereby nourishing every form and relationship of tissue? And when Stomach Function comes home through 2nd Thoracic, does it lead the other 11 Organ Function Energies with it?

So many questions to enjoy, from one simple page! …and no need to understand. I can simply listen to the page and to the seeds of awareness (questions) which arise.

Here, in 43, I learn that each Organ Function Energy is also leader of the manifesting of my Being during specific years of my life. Ages 1-3 all 11 other aspects of Organ Function Energy do their thing, giving their consciousness and light to Umbilicus Function Energy so I can receive, contain and BE the spark of Light on earth. Umbilicus (Capricorn) conducts the Spark from Heaven to Earth, from Blueprint to Body. It nourishes all relationships –  and after all, aren’t tissue and form, simply, complex weavings of relationships! It is a feminine energy, cradling me from conception through age 3. Every aspect of this page gives a hint about the Being Umbilicus is building for me. Numbers 0, 1, 2, 3: No-Thing à All Inclusive à Duality à Relationship. …10:00, 11:00, 12:00. (Through another cultural lens, Umbilicus is experienced as 22:00, 23:00, 24:00.) The spark of Umbilicus Function comes home to Main Central at the reproductive organ: I am Created a creator. This is at the base of the pubic bone, where Eternal Life Energy (page 42, Text 2), LIGHT, “Becomes Extinct”. I see this ‘extinction” as a continual Big Bang, sparking both my personal Main Central and “Individualized” Body Function Energy, igniting Space-Time into transformation. This aspect of 7th Depth penetrates deep into the body above the upper lip and descends along the spine. Very young children know to explore their world (and to use self-help) by putting everything (including the finger of a Depth in need) into their mouth. Perhaps they are discovering their world via this 7th Depth flow, with the speed of light, nourishing and evolving the body (pelvic girdle) and mind (consciousness).

Ages 0-3 Umbilicus Function Energy leads 12 Organ Function in the unfolding of my Being into the world. Within the circulation of years the unique Star I AM is built, reflecting the unique (“individualized”) manifestation of Universal Blueprint which formed me in the womb.

I see the Star I AM is not fully manifest until age 64! (a 10!)

Thank you, Cynthia.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

I’m thinking about exploring fear…


“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, our fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if we explore them.”
— Marilyn Ferguson

In our world of duality, fear and love sit at opposite ends of the continuum. Fear belongs only to the personality because it believes in separation and impermanence. The soul never knows fear because it understands the unity of all.

When fear arises, we can invite our soul to sit with our frightened personality. What soul energies are waiting to be acknowledged? When we bring higher energies into the presence of lower energies, the lower energies are transformed.

“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 3

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 53, Summer 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

By the time Blueprint has developed up to page 43, Totality has differentiated into astonishingly specific aspects of Being: personality, consciousness, volume, place, shape, time, function, rhythm. Now, in 43 (7: Perfect Life Power) these aspects are blended – with one another and with Main Central – creating All Combined Energy-Timing. Within this new energetic vibration develops the Blueprint for what can only be a collaboration of all aspects of all the Depths: the functions (actions) and relationships of living tissues: nerve, flesh, blood, bone, etc. It is from within the ascending and descending breath of All Combine Energy that the 144,000 Special Body Function Energy is born.

Yet 6th Depth, Desire to BE, extends the creation of All Combined Energy even further. On pages 60-61 of Text 2, I learn that manifested tissues (nostrils, brain, vertebrae, stomach, toes, etc.) serve as an instrument to invisible Energy, just as the organ does to its activator, the organist. Energy works within the body to transform matter (food and air) back into SOURCE: invisible energies (Compressed Oxygen and Liquified Grain Function Energies). These distillations nourish their ancestor: All Combined Energy. Within the vertically spiraling down of 6th Depth BREATH into matter, and the breaking up of matter into SOURCE (As above, so below. As below, so above.). All Combined Energy-Timing forms a moebius* spiral of the horizontal plane. I see this Energy on the “Answer Sheet” as the cusp of Lumbar and Sacrum, where the relationship amongst elements (manifested Depths) is blended into the evolving and developing of man. The manifested body reflects this horizontal moebius* as pelvic girdle and pelvic floor, a cauldron of life.

Where is All Combined Energy – Timing? Each Aspect of 12 Organ Function Energy comes home to the Main Central at a specific location, as illustrated in page 43. My understanding is that their 5 relationship harmonizers (pages 36-41, Text 2) live as potential within each of the 12. Imagine a 12-tone scale in which each tone produces overtones binding it in varying harmonies to each other tone. (Many forms of music are based on such scales.) I, an individual, share capacity for varying kinds of relationships with each other individual. So these 5 relationship blueprints (which are simply grandchildren of the relationships given by Trinity: the functions of ascending and descending; blending and separating, source, SOURCE and LIGHT), bring their actions into Main Central along with 12 Organ Function Energy at each location given in the map of page 43.

*The Möbius strip is the configuration space of two unordered points on a circle. Consequently, in music theory, the space of all two-note chords, known as dyads, takes the shape of a Möbius strip; this and generalizations to more points is a significant application of orbifolds to music theory.

The Möbius strip or Möbius band (/ˈmɜːrbiəs/ (non-rhotic) or US /ˈmoʊbiəs/; German: [ˈmøːbi̯ʊs]), Mobius or Moebius, is a surface with only one side and only one boundary. The Möbius strip has the mathematical property of being non-orientable. It can be realized as a ruled surface. It was discovered independently by the German mathematicians August Ferdinand Möbius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858.

I’m thinking about the power of the moment…


“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
— Annie Dillard

We lose the power of the moment because we’re so rarely in it. We’re reliving the past or speculating about the future. We continue to believe that tomorrow’s the day when I’ll be more capable, more wealthy, more fit and more loving. Meanwhile, I’m just putting in time, dreaming of better things but not making any concrete move to realize them.

When you find yourself thinking of the future or the past, bring your awareness into the present moment. Really experience how you feel and what’s happening around you, without judgment. If we can treasure each moment, our lives will be rich, no matter what we have accomplished.

“Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.”
— Horace Mann

“If, before going to bed every night, you will tear a page from the calendar, and remark, ‘there goes another day of my life, never to return,’ you will become time conscious.”
— A. B. Zu Tavern

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 2

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 53, Summer 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

Desiring further BEING, BREATH/FIRE slows and denses into Mediator, just as thought denses into action. Vibration, emotion and power are born in the activating quality of Mediator. Here also is the cause of most disharmonies, as the function of Mediator is to reflect and blend the perfect Blueprint given by Trinity, just as the waters of our world, when serene, reflect the heavens, just as the rippling flows of tones emanate from within, and reflect Bach’s fugue. In the manifested world it is water (Mediator) in which life originates, and living tissues are composed primarily of water. If the organist had hit a “wrong” note, the vibrations filling the resonant space of the church would have been altered, and when Mediator does not reflect the Wisdom of Trinity the vibrations filling the resonant space of my body alter. This dissonance can be the birth of a “project”.

Over the bridge of Mediator, desiring further BEING, BREATH/FIRE slows and denses, giving birth to 17 “Individualized” Body Function Energy: the EARTH of my Being. Here relationships of the qualities of the Depths condense into action: functions. Within the eternal NOW and Universality of Trinity Energy, Time and Place are born. 12 “Individualized” Body Function Energy (a.k.a. 12 Organ Function Energy), with their five relationship mediators (harmonizers), ascend and descend, “to develop the physical form and the invisible consciousness, voice and energy”. (Page 3, text 2) When their rhythmic dance is in harmony with SOURCE, they reflect all the Wisdom of CAUSE. I and my world are created with protection. (Surface Body Function Energy), with center (Deep Body Function Energy), and as a perfect receptacle, permeated with Energy (Middle Body Function Energy). (Page 4, Text 2)

Amongst many pages of differentiation in our Texts, page 43 is one of blending. These pages of blending are cusps in the development of the Blueprint, and key to my understanding of the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. We have developing, developing, blending; developing, developing, blending – like the story of relationship of parent and child. Apparently my parents give birth to me…or do I give birth to them? Relationship (transformation) flows in all directions, just as does FIRE and LIGHT. My relationship with my parents manifests quite differently when I’m newborn, a toddler, teen and adult. When we reflect Blueprint, my parents generate me, and in all my manifestations I regenerate my parents, sparking their transformation. “Individualized” Body Function Energy returns to Main Central, its ancestor, and instigates its further evolution, just as the permutations of Bach’s first chords transform those chords.

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 1

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 53, Summer 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

Who is All Combined Energy – Timing? Mary says, “Open your textbook and day-dream.” Last week, gazing semi-blank at page 43, I suddenly realized that All Combined Energy is the name of a particular vibration of energy. Now, I know that I must have “heard” this many times in class – so how fun to finally receive the “ah ha!” – breath by breath, my vision is beginning… As for “Timing” – I’m not certain. Is it a noun, part of the name Page 43 illustrates Energy – Timing? Or is it a verb; is page 43 illustrating the timing of All Combined Energy? At the moment I see it as both.

What is All Combined Energy – Timing? This energy is a harmonious intermingling of all aspects of the Blueprint. As such, I can KNOW it only by listening to the entire sweep of the Blueprint.

Recently I sat in an old stone church in Frankfurt and listened to an organist play a Bach prelude and fugue. The first chords held the totality of the music, which proceeded to unfold carefully, simply, for some measures, giving space in which to appreciate sound and no-sound, tone and over-tone. The music developed: further chords; chords in earnest; tones expanding with fire; fire particulating into vibration – each tone separating into an unending chord of under-tones, over-tones, resonances bounding in all directions past the ranges of perception – just as chords separated into notes; notes cascading as scales into rippling flows of sound; the flows spiraling high and low; singing heaven and earth. I did not know this piece, and so I experienced it as utter fire, breath, chaos, and order.

Mary says the body is built on musical harmony, and our texts are the score of this musical harmony. Through Texts 1 and 2, I am given a somewhat linear (actually, spiraling), development of the Blueprint. The “Answer Sheet” (the handout titled Now Know Myself) is like an outline of the texts, illustrating the same story. It is a spiraling story of Transformation: Generation and Regeneration; building and breaking down; differentiation and relationship; separation and blending. 7th Depth, LIGHT, sparks the FIRE of 6th Depth: BREATH; the Desire to BE. 6th Depth is Totality and All Inclusive, yet in the Desire to BE, it differentiates, giving birth to Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy, Major Vertical (Supervisor) Universal Harmonizing Energy (Left and Right) – Trinity Energy – and Diagonal (Mediator) Universal Harmonizing Energy. Depths 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 are all inherent aspects of the FIRE of 6th Depth, which striates into the specific qualities of each Depth as it slows in vibration, just as light separates into colors, both visible and invisible, within its vast spectrum.

As 6th Depth FIRE slows, it denses, and the 6 Depths inherent within Totality give birth to specific qualities inherent within their totality: The Safety Energy Locks. New chords of color, tone and meaning are born as relationships within each Depth and amongst the Depths develop. The Safety Energy Locks, born at the vibration of the Supervisor (Wisdom), speak the language of CAUSE (8th Depth): Pure Thought.
