Health is the Twelfth Treasure

Your health is your true wealth and the most important thing in the world. Money won’t buy you good health, however prosperity may afford you good food, warm shelter and good medical care; things that are necessary for good health. Therefore, it is good to live in a prosperous society. Good health is the ultimate treasure of life for it is with good health that we enjoy all the treasures of life. It is very difficult to enjoy life when you are sick and tired. The basic three pillars of health are diet, exercise and sleep. Every day keep your focus on the three pillars for without your health everything else is meaningless. Let’s get started on exercise with yoga. END: Your journey on earth is not about the body and the mind; however, without the body and the mind the soul cannot experience this earthly life. The body is the vehicle and the mind is the GPS of the soul. Therefore, it is our responsibility and duty to take care of our health. Eating healthy, exercising, relaxing, reflecting, laughing and loving are all good for our health. When the body, the mind and the soul are in prefect balance, we have perfect health. And when we have perfect health, we have so much more to give to the world. A healthy, balanced perfected human has the power to equally disseminate joy, cheer and bliss to all. EGO: Flip your hands up and extend the index finger the symbol of the ego. The ego is our friend in that its main purpose is to help us survive in a sometimes-hostile world. The problem with the ego is that is begins to believe it is supreme. We lose sight of our true self which is unlimited. We define ourselves by our experiences in relationship to everything else. This leads to object referral instead of self-referral. We then get caught up in defining our life by the “I”; our body, our relationships, our possessions, our fears and desires. We say, “I am feeling ill.” But it is not the “I” that is ill. It is the body that is ill and not our true self which is the soul. However, without the health of the body and the mind the soul cannot complete its earthly mission and must return again (reincarnate) as another being to work out its karma. Therefore, we need the ego to protect us and give us insight into our experiences, but not as the main reason for our walk here on earth. Pull in your index finger and place your thumb on top – the symbol of the soul. Value the treasure of health above all else by honoring yourself; body, mind and soul, because; “When health is absent wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless and reason is powerless.” Herophilies, 300 B.

Beauty is the Eleventh Treasure

Beauty is in the eyes and the heart of the beholder, or simply put; the beauty of the world is within you. Beauty is not found in an image, but in how you see the world. Beauty is as much about attitude as it is about the physical body. Beauty like all of life comes in different forms. It is physical and material, it is conceptual and mindful and it is ethereal and soulful. Mostly we are drawn to physical beauty by conceptually deciding what is and what is not beautiful to us. We then hope to hold onto what we believe to be the permanent and satisfying aspect of beauty. But with all things in life, we must appreciate that beauty is continually changing. The physical beauty of youth gives way to an inner beauty that can only be gained through maturity. The blossom of a fruit is beautiful, but it is only when it changes, ages and ripens that it becomes life sustaining and sweet fruit. Understanding this brings calmness of mind, and with calmness of mind we become poised, tranquil and contemplative. Here we have the opportunity to develop a sincere and intellectual appreciation for beauty. A beautiful thought is to see beauty where there is ugliness. To see the good where there is bad. This is not a naïve Pollyanna approach to life, but rather the realization that beauty is found in symmetry and in contrast. For example: you see a horrible ugly crime, like the Boston Marathon bombing, or 9-11 World Trade Center attack. But with this horror comes the comforting and caring for those who are grieving. This touches the beauty of humanity. Let’s focus on beauty today – takes work -that’s karma END Beauty is one of the great treasures of life. It has nothing to do with attributes and adjectives and everything to do with understanding the true nature of beauty. It is the ability to live fully embracing each moment with joy. When you walk through life with calmness, contemplation and appreciation for all of life you will find beauty everywhere. The world is real and full of beauty. The maya (illusion) is in your perception and interpretation of things. Whether you see the world as beautiful or ugly is all up to you. To see the beauty of life is truly a treasure and sure to bring you prosperity. Beauty is not an image. It’s a vison embedded in your soul. Practice self-control and intellectual appreciation. Look within and you will find beauty everywhere. Doctor Lynn EGO What destroys beauty? Fear! All of the great pleasures of life bring with them the fear of losing them. Beauty is one of those things. It’s alright to have a beautiful face and a beautiful body. The problem comes when we fear losing them. That’s when vanity and ego come into play. Vanity and the ego can blur the line between real beauty and the perception of beauty. In most religious teachings’ vanity is considered to be self-centered and a form of self-idolatry. It means to consider oneself of great importance. Philosophically vanity is referred to as the ego or pride. Nietzsche wrote, “Vanity is fear of appearing original; it is thus a lack of pride, but not necessarily a lack of originality.” Mason Cooley in one of his aphorisms wrote, “Vanity well fed is benevolent. Vanity hungry is spiteful.” It is this last quote that blurs the line between vanity, the ego and real beauty. Show me a person who does not see and appreciate beauty and I will show you a spiteful and angry soul. But show me a person, who sees, lives and believes in beauty and I will show you a benevolent being. Embrace the treasure of beauty and you will prosper.

Humor is the Tenth Treasure

Never lose your sense of humor! Laughter is a great sound -- that's why we've all heard the saying, "Laughter is the best medicine." There is strong evidence that laughter can actually improve health and help fight disease. Laughter improves immune functioning, outlook, moods and emotions while reducing stress. Studies also show that people with a good sense of humor live longer. Humor (laughter) exists in all cultures and at all ages. It is an essential and fundamental part of human behavior. Humor can be used to make people feel good, to gain intimacy and to help us cope with stress. A sense of humor helps us to form connections to the world and provide meaning to our life. Humor also correlates with learning, wisdom and emotional well-being. The key to a happy life is to laugh and make others laugh without mocking, ridiculing or hurting anyone. It is also the ability to laugh at yourself and the absurdities of life. Self-acceptance of your own idiosyncrasies is the key to a happier and more joyful life. Find the humor in all of life and you will discover the power of laughter. So, let’s get to work and have some fun. END: To me the most beautiful sound in the world is to hear the ones I love laughing. I know in those moments they are experiencing pleasure; one of the great four aims in life. There will always be wars, famine and violence in the world. We should not ignore these things, however, if we focus on laughter and a sense of humor, we might be able to lift the energy of the world to a better place. The quality of a sincere intellectual appreciation for life will keep you laughing. EGO Flip up your hands and extend out your index finger the symbol of the ego. Maya means illusion or boundaries. We’ve all heard it said, “the worlds an illusion.” It is not the world that is an illusion. It is our perception of it. The world is real. It is how we see it and experience it that determine our reality. The ego is here to protect you, but it is also the part of you that gets caught in the illusion of life. The ego often believes that its interruption of life is the final reality forgetting that we all have a unique view of life gathered through our own unique experiences. Pull your finger in and place your thumb on top. Surrender to your soul. Just remember the world is made up of real experiences through which we gain real knowledge into the nature of the world and our true self. Our sense of humor is part of our true nature and is an integral part of how we see the world. It is not the world that is the illusion. The illusion is found in our interpretation of our experiences. Life will present you with many challenges. Each of these will test your resilience. If you cannot laugh at yourself and at the craziness of life, you will lose one of the great pleasures of life; laughter and a sense of humor. Never lose it! It’s a great treasure. “If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane?” Jimmy Buffett Namaste ~ may you walk the path with heath happiness and peace Doctor Lynn For mor books, classes, courses and consultation http://www.doctorlynn.com

Wealth is the Ninth Treasure

When asked whether one wants to be rich, or poor most everyone would say rich. The rich have more choices. They can go first class with everything. When we think of wealth we think about money and what we can get in exchange for it. That’s because monetary exchange makes the world go round. Where would we be without a method of exchange? But wealth is not just about money, or the accumulation of material things. Wealth is the ability to take potential energy and create. But wealth does not come without sacrifice, compromise, accommodating and negotiating. Nothing is life is free. Everything has its price. The universe has a perfect accounting system. If you wish to be wealthy you must do the work. The potential to create wealth exist everywhere. Just keep an eye out for the time gates; the opportunities that exist all around you. When you find them use the power of your courage to stay focused. Then keep moving forward shifting your view from wealth to prosperity. Focus on what you can do to make the world a better place and then do it. Everyone will prosper and you will become wealthy. Remember that wealth is the manifestation of divine energy and this energy must be honored. Wealth if misused will eventually bring Alakshmi the evil sister of Lakshmi; she will rain destruction and poverty upon you. When wealth comes to you, no matter how big, or how small remember that it can rise very fast, but if you are not careful the fall to poverty will be even faster. So, if wealth comes to you use it wisely. Never take without giving something back. END Everything in life must sacrifice. For every gain there is always a loss. A tree blooms. Then its blossoms give way to bearing fruit and then the tree sacrifices its fruit to nourish the earth and replenish. If you want to be wealth you must be willing to sacrifice. But remember Wealth can mean a lot of things such as, good health, great friends, a loving family and a comfortable life. When food, shelter, health, the arts, education and pleasure coexist with good ethics and morals true wealth is achieved. Be generous and count your blessings. The real measure of wealth is not found in your bank account, but is found in the degree of your happiness. Doctor Lynn EGO: Flip your hands up and extend out your index finger – the symbol of the ego. To prosper and become wealthy takes more than pure positive thinking. Wealth is the manifestation of divine energy and this energy must be honored. This stream of energy can reshape your life in either positive, or negative ways depending upon how you use it. Wealth can bestow great power while misuse will surely make a person suffer. Draw you finger in and place your thumb on top – the symbol of your soul. True prosperity can never be achieved when we have more than our share at the expense of others. That’s where good ethics and morals come into play. Use these two treasures together and you will prosper. Just remember wealth is not about possessions, but about an active flow of energy that benefits all of life. Dwell in a state of prosperity and you will dwell in a conscious state of wealth energy. Wealth in its most perfect form, equally disseminates, health, happiness and peace to all.

The Eighth Treasure

So far, we’ve explored the treasures of sexuality, love, ethics and morals, potential, courage, power and authority and now the eighth treasure; TENACITY Through tenacity we learn to persistently and consistently apply potential energy to our endeavors. Without it nothing will be achieved. Tenacity is at the head of the list when it comes to the use of potential energy. Karma gives us a formula for success; have a vison + a burning desire, backed with a well thought out plan, that you work consistently and persistently. This leads to success no what the endeavor; whether it be work, relationships, or self-related matters. And the only way to do this is to use the treasure of tenacity. Without the ability to withstand hardships and sufferings nothing is achieved. Success is impossible unless you have the will power and determination to move past hurtles and difficulties. Tenacity is the ability to not give up even when met with defeat. It means to have the faith to overcome what might appear impossible. It is an intuitive understanding that defeat is only temporary. The ability to keep marching through all of life’s ups and downs is the marker of a tenacious person. This requires a lot of balance, flexibility, strength and the ability to be calm and find peace. Takes work – that’s karma - let’s get to work. END: In yoga it is said that without the ability to withstand great hardships self-discipline cannot be attained and character cannot be built. Without self-discipline contentment and happiness is impossible. Without contentment and happiness, it is impossible to prosper. It is through tenacity that a person unleashes the energy to attain the unattainable and overcome the struggles and hardships that are part of the human experience. We all have these experiences. Its’ what we do with these experiences determines the direction of our karma. EGO: The ego by its very nature seek to minimize hardships and sufferings. It much preferers pleasure and fun. We should enjoy life and have fun. Pleasure is part of nature’s way of making sure we both survive and thrive. But when the ego believes it has all the answers and is above suffering and hardship something will happen to remind it to humble itself. Draw your finger in and place your thumb on top, the symbol of the soul, and I will remind you that tenacity applied from a place of dedication and love is a treasure not to be missed.

Authority is the Seventh Treasure

Authority means to have the power, or right to give orders, to make decisions and to enforce rules of order. This is truly a treasure of great importance for it has the power to create, or destroy depending upon ones moral and ethical underpinning. Just remember orders, decisions and rules of conduct based upon good and sound morals and ethics is the basis of a prosperous society. We all have some level of authority. Mostly it is the authority we have over our own conduct; our perception and attitudes. How we decide and enforce our conduct runs counter to our moral and ethical point of view. So, although we often think of authority as someone with great power it is a treasure, we all share. How we use it determines whether we prosper or not. Authority means the power to make and implement rules of order. Whether it is the head of a household, or the head of a nation rules must be followed The problems happen when authority and power is misused because of greed, deceit, anger and pride. The four great passions will lead to destruction if not tethered by ethical and moral codes of conduct. Never forget that life has a perfect accounting system. Nothing goes unbalanced or unnoticed. The laws of karma state that for every cause, there will be an effect. Life becomes what life does. END Authority brings with it a great responsibility. Someone of great authority is often known as an expert and therefore holds great knowledge. This knowledge often grants power, prestige and position. Authority also means to have the legal and formal rights to give orders and make decisions. How we use this authority determines whether a person, family, group or society prospers, or not. Just remember, we all have the treasure of authority. Every day we make decisions and enforce rules of order. The moral duty of anyone in a place of power and authority is to make the world a better place by making those who they have power and authority over, healthy, happy and safe. Their happiness and welfare then become the authoritarian’s happiness and welfare. When this happens, everyone prospers. Sincerity and appreciation are required to discover this treasure. Authority is truly a great treasure. Use it wisely and you will prosper. EGO”: flip your palm up and extend your index finger – the symbol of your ego. The ego loves power and authority. It gives it a feeling of strength and autonomy. However, when used to dictate, coheres or abuse others, or the world it will always be deflated and depleted. Think of those who yielded great power and authority only to abuse it. Eventually they lost both of these treasures. Pull your finger in and place your thumb the sambal of your ego on top. If you wish to proper do not give away your power but rather use it along with your authority to make the world a better place. Remember do no harm and do not abuse your power and authority. As Gandhi reminded us, “The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” Namaste~ may you walk with health, happiness and peace Doctor Lynn For a FREE HEALTH NEWSLETTER; course, classes, books and more http://www.doctorlynn.com

Power is the Sixth Treasure

Power is referred to as the ability to influence the will, or conduct of others. It is also the ability to control and direct your energy towards your goals, as well as control over your conduct. Power resides within the individual. It is independent and informal in nature and is derived from charisma and status. Power allows a person to influence and set an example for millions of people. On a smaller scale we have power over our children, employees, students, family members, friends and ourselves. How we use power determines our prosperity. Power has nothing to do with accumulating great material wealth, however often times great wealth comes as the result of this treasures. Misuse of power is known as manipulation. It may gain you the upper hand temporarily, but it will at some point bring rebellion, disgust, hatred, humiliation and destruction. Think of all the powerful leaders who misused their power. All were eventually met with great opposition, defeat and death. Power at its best is used to empower yourself, as well as others towards making the world a better place. Here we need to implement the qualities of discriminating between right and wrong, self-control and sincere intellectual appreciation for all of life. Takes work – that’ karma – let’s get started. END: Remember as you think, say and do your life becomes. Examine the power of your intentions and remember to do no harm. In this your power will evolve and it will always be used for good. Self-control and sincere appreciation are required to discover the treasure of power. What you do with this power depends upon your moral and ethical understanding. If a friend asks your opinion about taking a new job, or needs a little support when it comes to a love interest are you able to guide them unselfishly? You have just gotten a promotion and are now in charge of other people. Do you treat them fairly, or are you overcome with a sense of misguided power and seek to rule rather than lead? Power brings great wealth. Do you use it to buy and control other people, or do you use it to help other people excel? EGO: flip your hands up and extend out your index finger – the symbol of your ego. Feel it pull you from your center. When it comes to power the ego is all in. Power and control are the nature of the ego. When used properly it seeks to use its power and control to help you both survive and to thrive. But when used in combination with deceit, greed, anger and pride it is destructive. Pull your ego in and place your thumb on top – the symbol of the soul; seek to do no harm. Use your power to make the world a better place by striving to become the perfect human being; true to yourself and equally disseminating joy, happiness and peace to all.

FOUR DAILY AIMS FOR PROSPERITY – wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation

Lesson 6/11 THE NEDHIS – the treasures of life Qualities needed to Prosper 1. Have Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 2. To endure suffering and hardships And of course be calm, reflect and have self-control Treasures: Procreation, love, ethic and morals. potential and now: Courage is the fifth treasure Courage is seen as an attribute of good character and respect. We equate it to a mighty warrior or someone who goes to battle. Yet courage is not just about physical bravery. Courage involves the ability to speak out against injustice, to take a risk in the face of adversity, to open yourself up to the vulnerabilities of life and to believe in your convictions even when met with mockery and contempt. Personal growth lies within the unknown, courage permits you to explore this space. Nothing in life is ever accomplished without a dose of courage. That’s because courage is the engine of ingenuity. Attempt something new and above the mediocracy of everyday life and you will be met with opposition, criticism and ridicule. Rise above this, solider onward and you will discover the treasure of courage. Courage takes balance, flexibility strength and the ability to find peace within a chaotic world. Its’ take work – that’s karma let’s get started! END It takes courage to forgive, to be humble, and to be respectful and compassionate in a world that equates courage with brute force and domination. It takes courage to speak your mind and be true to yourself when faced with conformity. It takes courage to love and be open to vulnerability. Courage therefore is the ability to remain strong within even when the outside world is nebulous and moving. But the greatest use of courage is to overcome dis-couragement. Courage is the only antidote for failure and disappointment. The capacity to endure suffering and hardships requires faith and courage. EGO Our fiercest enemy is the ego. It is a mighty force and not easy to control. It takes courage to look within and find the strength to successfully manage the challenges of life. Courage requires nothing more than simply letting go of fear with unshakable faith. Remove fear and the warrior stands courageous rather than the hapless victim. Thus, the warrior with courage conquers all. Courage is not the absence of fear; it is the conquest of it.

FOUR DAILY AIMS – wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation

THE NEDHIS – the treasures of life Qualities needed to Prosper 1 Be Calmness 2 Have Self-control 3. Self-withdrawal; reflect 4. Unshakable faith Sexuality or procreation, love, ethic and morals and now: Potential is the fourth treasure Potential energy, unlike kinetic energy which is energy in motion, is stored energy that exist by virtue of its’ relative position to everything else in the universe. Just by your existence in relationship to everything else in the world you have been given the treasure of potential energy. That means you have the potential to create and your potential is only limited by how you position yourself in relationship to everything else in the world. Self-acceptance is fundamental to discovering your potential. You are who you are so you should make the best of it. Don’t compare yourself, or your life to others. Instead encourage yourself to attain your highest potential. Life is abundant with potential energy. Realize this and you will never go without. The laws of thermodynamics tell us that energy is never lost. It simply changes form. Padmini Vidya, as a science, tells us that when we consciously create and release a particular desire, the energy of that desire manifest into material form. But be careful because consciousness has the potential to create or destroy. This is not a think positive proposition. It is about giving a thought the potential to manifest. Nothing in life is created without first some level of conscious energy. This requires you to have faith and a belief that you can attain what you desire through the use of your potential energy. Develop the qualities of self-withdrawal(reflection) and unshakable faith and you will prosper. END: For life to exist at all there must be potential energy. Even science tells us that for the material world to exist there must be the potential. Consciousness needs a vehicle, such as the brain to bring thoughts into material manifestation. But it needs nothing to exist. It is potential waiting to materialize through its relationship to everything else in the universe. Every thought, word and deed are a manifestation of potential energy. But for potential energy to bring you prosperity it must follow this formula: have a vision + backed with desire + a well-thought-out plan + persistent and consistent action = success. Dreams and desires are a part of life. Even aimless people aspire for things. However, not all people have clear and concise goals, but everyone harbors vague ideas about their future, where they want to go, what they want to do and how to become prosperous and happy. Potential energy exists everywhere. Use it wisely. EGO Potential energy is not simply positive thinking, or mind over matter. The ego wants to be important and sometimes believes it has the power just by its existence to succeed. The ego can be quite self-serving and selfish. But it takes more than wishful thinking to make things manifest. Potential exists everywhere and it is up to us to turn it into kinetic energy, or material form. If your energy is negative, you will draw negative destructive energy towards you. Alashimi, the evil sister of Lakshmi might visit you and wreak havoc on your house! If you are positive, you will draw positive energy towards you. This is essential if you wish to prosper. No one ever prospers in a negative place of negative energy for very long. So, pull your ego in and surrender it to your soul reflect upon life, have unshakable faith and know that within you is the potential to create or destroy.

THE NIDHIS – the treasures of life Qualities needed to Prosper

1 Be Calmness 2 Have Self-control 3. Self-withdraw reflect 4. Have the Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Be Sincere and intellectually appreciate 6. Be Tranquility; develop the poise gained by constant contemplation 7. Be able to Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Have Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. Strive To become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. The first treasure is sexuality; the second is love and the third is: Ethics and Morals There are three things’ humans need in order to both survive and thrive. The first is material goods including shelter and food. The second is erotic practice, or sex to ensure the continuation of the species and the third is rules of behavior, or ethical and moral codes of conduct. One of the qualities need to prosper is the ability to discriminate between what is right and what is wrong. The underlying factor is to do no harm. All humans desire long life, knowledge, justice, fame, love and salvation. Living beings other than humans only seek survival. Therefore, the successful survival and thriving of the human species is based upon good morals and ethics. Make the wrong choice and there will be consequences; life becomes what life does. But you must decide what is right and what is wrong. No one can do this for you. How and what you choose is a reflection of what you value. or wrong. It is good to make money and enjoy the pleasures of life. However, when people are only attached to money and pleasure without a moral and ethical underpinning the decadence of the world is inevitable. When profit and pleasure are guided by ethics and morals, they become instruments for humanitarian and soulful growth. It is good to make a profit just do it from a consciously guided way. This takes work – that’s karma let’s get started. END: Some people think the desire to fulfill our inner life makes it difficult to make money. This is not true. When we do things with a clear conscious, prosperity is sure to come. Just remind yourself that money and wealth have the power to do more than poverty. So, seek wealth and enjoy the pleasures of life based upon good morals and ethics. Wealth, sex, love and ethics is the cornerstone of a civilized society. Just as your soul needs to be fed pure energy, the conscience needs ethics, the mind love and sex, and the body wellbeing. Without these things life begins to crumble. The measure of success, or failure in life is the degree of your happiness and not the size of your bank account. However, fulfilling the desire for wealth, sex love based upon reputable morals and ethics will lead to prosperity. EGO: While our modern-day culture and our ego encourages us to get rich no matter what the cost, yoga challenges us to look at money as a divine force that we must handle responsibly. We are encouraged to earn a good living and even to become rich. However, the path must be honest and lawful. We must always seek to do no harm. Pull your ego in and place your soul on top. Humans desire long life, knowledge, justice, fame, love and salvation. The rest of life only seeks to survive. The successful survival and thriving of human beings are based upon good morals and ethics. This is a treasure of great importance. Act ethically from this moral base; do unto others as you would have them do unto you and do no harm.

TREASURES of LIFE

The Four Aims Wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation. The first treasure is sexuality. To find the treasures you need to: 1 Be Calmness 2 Have Self-control 3. Self-withdraw reflect 4. Have the Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Be Sincere and intellectually appreciate 6. Be Tranquility; develop the poise gained by constant contemplation 7. Be able to Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Have Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. Strive To become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. Love is the Second Treasure Love comes in many shades and in many forms. Romantic love is one kind of love, but love of family, friends, interest, work and life are aspects of love that will also fill the heart and nourish the soul. Just remember that love is not sex. It is a spiritual experience that touches the soul. Love is a precious treasure that materializes through, caring, compassion and understanding. Love may come and it may go more than once in your life time. No two loves will ever be the same. Romantic love may come with a burst of powerful energy, but it will evaporate and change with time. How love changes are based upon the absence, or presence of true love. So do not think yourself unfortunate if you have loved and lost. Love comes and loves goes without reason or cause. It is whimsical and comes as it will. If it comes enjoy it and if it must depart let it go. No amount of fretting and anguishing will bring it back. Stay unattached, but never indifferent to love. This requires the capacity to endure sorrow and suffering. For love to endure it must stay open to the endless possibilities of life. Now if we mix our sexual energy with love its power begins to multiply. Calmness of purpose, judgement and balance come into play when sex and love become one. When love and devotion are mixed with sex, we create the ultimate pleasurable human experience; the gift of giving and receiving joy. But remember love and sex, as well as romance also have a darker side. The troublesome four - envy, jealousy, resentment and revenge can turn love into hate and abuse. Itaek work to maste the four great apssoina and the troubsme four and that is what is need to allow true love to exist. That’s karma takes work let’s get strted. END Love is one of life’s’ greatest experiences. Love alone will not bring you happiness, but when mixed with sex and romance we have the ability to move beyond the finite world and into the realm of the infinite soul. Sincerity and intellectual appreciation for the nature of love is needed if we are to truly experience this treasure. Love also involves devotion. Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion, teaches us to devote ourselves to that which we love so that we might discover the true meaning of success. Love, if consciously cultivated, can harmonize and uplift our personal relationships so that they can serve the spiritual process of self-discovery. With this we discover how to disseminate joy, cheer and bliss to all. But this takes work and that is why we are here on earth; to work our karma. It is said that if you encounter a bad marriage in this lifetime, it is because you brought that energy forward when you reincarnated. It is simply an opportunity to correct and evolve. Consciously work to create true and meaningful love and you will discover one of the great treasures of life. EGO flip your palm up and stretch out your index finger r – the symbol of your ego. If ever the four great passions and troublesome four can come into our lives it is through the experience of love. The ego wants and need to be loved, admired and accepted. If not, it fears losing its control and this is when passions can over take reason. Pull your index finger in and place the thumb on top – the symbol of your soul. Consciously use your soul to create true and meaningful love and you will discover one of the great treasures of life. Love may come and it may go more than once in your life time. No two loves will ever be the same. What would life be like if we did have this beautiful treasure? Just remember you are here to experience all of life, and Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

Nidhi and the treasures of life

Now to the Nidhi and the treasures of life – remember to ask Lakshmi every day for Wealth Pleasure harmony and liberation and then keep these qualities in mind: 1 Calmness 2 Self-control 3. Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Sincerity and intellectual appreciation 6.Tranquility; the poise gained by constant contemplation 7.Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. To become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. Sexuality is the First Treasure Most likely this first treasure surprised you. Your sexuality is a great treasure because the very first thing you are in life is a sexual being. Long before you have a name, or an image you are a sexual being. From the moment of conception your sexuality is formed. Your sex and then your sexual orientation define you and strongly influences how you live your life. This energy must be harnessed if you are to prosper. The human mind needs stimuli to fuel its enthusiasm, imagination and desire. At the top of list of stimuli is sex. This powerful force has the ability to destroy great empires, or to build great fortunes. The world is ruled by emotions and not reason, and the emotional desire, or drive for sex is the most powerful. Everything in the world is designed to stimulate the sexual urge; to make us feel sexier and more desirable. Take sex away and the world would crumble. Sex by itself is simply the drive towards procreation and physical gratification, but the treasure of sex is so much more. The powerful sex drive is the force that gives rise to all of creation. Without the sexual drive, life as we know it would disappear. Most highly successful people are very sexual. The secret to their success is their ability to turn the sexual energy of charm and charisma into a force that creates prosperity. They understand how to use posture, adornment and charm to create a powerful force that is so much more than pure physical sexual energy. Sexual energy is a powerful force that must be harnessed and used to create, or if left to run wild it will destroy. Research tells us that sex is good for our physical health and for clearing the mind. To prosper calmness and self-control must align with our sexual energy. When this happens, we transform the use of our sexual energy from the drive for pure physical expression and gratification into a highly developed drive towards achieving our goals. This takes work – that’s karma – let’s get started END The creative use of sexual energy requires unshakable faith and will power. The desire for sexual expression is inborn and natural. It cannot and should not be suppressed. It should be given a creative outlet that enriches the body, the mind and the soul. If harnessed the sexual urge will find expression through creative endeavors and these will bring you prosperity. The greatest creative gift to the world is when a soul reincarnates in the body and the mind for the purpose of bringing forth potential energy. It is about realizing that our personal creativity is rooted in and derived from cosmic creative potential itself. Creativity is a manifestation of sexual energy. Creativity is the basis for all prosperity. Therefore, sexuality is a great creative treasure and if used properly will lead to prosperity. Understanding this you will then have converted the most powerful drive on earth into a force that is creatively unbeatable. But it will require self-control and this requires discipline. This takes work – this is karma. EGO: the ego sometimes uses sexual energy to persuade and manipulate in an attempt to gain power and control. Remember the ego is the part of us that helps us to survive. Survival, which includes sex is necessary, if the human species is to continue; but it also seeks pleasure and self-gratification; sometimes at the expense of other’s, health, happiness and peace. Pull your finger in and place the thumb on top. The soul looks upon sex as a beautiful expression of creative energy that if directed with self-control and sincerity brings us true pleasure and this is truly a treasure. Use it wisely.

NINE QUALTIES of PROSPERITY

Before we discover the nidhi and the nidhies it is imperative that we practice the four aims and the 9 qualities that lead to prosperity; so, to review: Lakshmi has four hands – reach out each day and aim to bring wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation into your life. Just remember wealth comes in many forms and is not necessarily material possessions, pleasure taken to extreme brings pain, harmony is to be in perfect flow with life and liberation is the ability to let go and let be. The nine qualities are: 1 Calmness 2 Self-control 3. Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Sincerity and intellectual appreciation 6.Tranquility; the poise gained by constant contemplation 7.Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. The become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. According to karma ignorance is the source of all suffering and this suffering is the result of the four patterns of karma that obscure or conceal the truth. Once the truth is revealed we have the ability to transcend our karma. These blockages can prevent us form discover the our aims and the 9 qualities. The first pattern is the karma that blocks knowledge. Our knowledge of the world comes about through the five senses. When knowledge is blocked one cannot see the subtle connection between things and events. It is like the person who is emotionally cruel to their partner and cannot understand why the partner is cold. The second is the karma that blocks feelings of joy and grief, pleasure and pain. Simply this means that you cannot separate the opposing forces of nature. We cannot remove night from day. They both exist as a reflection of the other. Every experience in life can be seen as pleasurable or painful depending upon how we interpret things. A mosquito bites and you feel the pain of the itch. You scratch the itch and feel the pleasure in scratching. Same bite bringing both pain and pleasure. The third karma is longevity or life span. The theory of karma states that the longer you live the more experiences you have, the greater your knowledge and so the wiser you become. The length of your life is one thing, but the vitality of your life is another. The vitality you have now is a direct result of the last life. Be tremendously enthusiastic about life now and it will affect this life, as well as the next life. The karma affecting your next life is formed during the last 48 minutes of this incarnation. The fourth karma is that which hinders your will power. When this kind of karma is operating it makes us incapable of doing even the simplest of things. Negative thoughts grow and become more negative, more emotional and more dangerous. This develops into anxiety, fear, anger and even hostility. Finally, it breaks out into self-destructive actions. When you lose the ability to harness your will power many complications will arise in your life. So: 1 Be Calmness 2 Have Self-control 3. Practice Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Have the Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Be Sincere and intellectually appreciate all of life 6. Be Tranquil; maintain your poise by constant contemplation 7.Discriminate between right and wrong 8. Have Unshakeable faith, this will lead you to attain what might appear unattainable 9. Strive to become the perfected human, living connected to your true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. This takes work; that’s karma; let’s get stared! END Master; lack of knowledge, blocked feelings, unhealthy lifestyle and inability to harness your free will and you will have the tools to work through your karma. But remember it takes work – that’s karma! Keeping these nine qualities in mind: 1 Be Calmness 2 Have Self-control 3. Practice Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Have the Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Be Sincere and intellectually appreciate all of life 6. Be Tranquil; maintain your poise by constant contemplation 7.Discriminate between right and wrong 8. Have Unshakeable faith, this will lead you to attain what might appear unattainable 9. Strive to become the perfected human, living connected to your true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. Next week I will begin to share with you the fourteen treasures (nidhis) that I have discovered, that if fully understood and used properly, will bring you wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation and in this you will prosper. I hope to be a good teacher by showing you where to look, but not what to see. EGO: Flip your palm up and extend your index finger. Feel the ego pull you away from your center. The ego is the part of us that seeks to survive. It thinks it knows everything, it blocks our feeling as a protective mechanism, it takes health for granted, and because it acts as our protector it is full of fear, and this fear brings out anger and hostility. Pull your index finger in and place your thumb on top and take a quiet moment to surrender it to your soul. In this place of soulful surrender Let’s take a moment remember the 9 qualities needed to reach, discover and use the treasure of life: 1 Calmness 2 Self-control 3. Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Sincerity and intellectual appreciation 6.Tranquility; the poise gained by constant contemplation 7.Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. To become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all.

The Nidhi – the container that holds the treasures of life

The Nidhi is the container that holds all of life’s treasures known as the Nidhis. Once we find the container and learn how to open its lid, we will find that all the treasures are available to each and every one of us and once attained, is used properly, will bring us prosperity. The Nidhis are somewhat shrouded in mystery and said to be a secret. But remember a secret is only a secret until it is revealed. Here is one philosophical interpretations of the Nidhi and how to find the Nidhis contained within. A person is drawn to pleasurable objects only when they seem to be real, permanent and potentiality satisfying. When we understand that all objects in life are not permanent and always subject to change, our minds become calm and strive towards higher attainment. According to the Hindu scriptures there are nine qualities required to discover the nidhis. Discovering them will bring us prosperity and they are: 1 Calmness 2 Self-control 3. Self-withdrawal (reflection) 4. Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Sincerity and intellectual appreciation 6.Tranquility; the poise gained by constant contemplation 7.Discrimination between right and wrong 8. Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9. Strive to become the perfected human, living connected to the true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all. These are indeed the nine qualities every human must attain to discover the true treasures of life. This leads to nirvana; reuniting self with the universal soul. The soul reaches this state after living many lives and that is why we need to work our karma because to discover nirvana we need the freedom that comes with liberation. You cannot find freedom until you have paid your karmic debt. Let’s reflect on these nine for a moment. Remember; You are a result of every thought word and deed. So, live your life as you would live it in eternity. This takes work that’s karma let’s get started END The habits you form are a result of repeated actions you initiated over lifetimes of experience, be they wise, or foolish. In yoga we call this samskara, or the impressions that get inscribed into the mental grove of our being. These grooves are formed by repetitive thoughts, patterns, or habits that get deeper over time. If negative impressions get ingrained the mental emotional self is unable to integrate with the other layers of self – the physical, energetic, higher wisdom and ultimately bliss. To prosper we must be fully integrated at our highest level. Once you establish a pattern it takes conscious work to dissolve it, or in the case of a positive pattern constant work to maintain it. It may take lifetimes to work this through. That is the nature of karma. We are on an evolutionary journey from lifetime to lifetime to resolve and transcend our negative karma (patterns) and establish ourselves in maksha; the freedom to simply be in a state of eternal bliss. It is by the force of karma that we are born again and again in an attempt to resolve and complete this journey. EGO: flip up the palms of your hand and extend your index finger the symbol of your ego. Feel it pull you away from your center. Freedom to do, think and say as it pleases is the desire of the ego. Karma reminds us that this is not freedom. If we truly wish to find freedom, we must do the karmic work; observe, detach and let go. Pull your finger in and place your thumb on top – the symbol of the soul. To discover the container that holds the treasures of life connect with your soul and: 1 be Calm 2 Have Self-control 3.Take time to withdraw and reflect 4.Have the Capacity to endure sorrows and sufferings 5 Be sincere and intellectually appreciate all that comes into your life 6.Be Tranquility; contemplate 7.Discrimination between right and wrong 8.Have Unshakeable faith, leading one to attain what might appear unattainable 9.Strive to become the perfected human, living connected to your true self; equally disseminating joy, cheer and bliss to all.

A Day of Prosperity

Each day get up and ask Lakshmi to guide you towards the four directions, or aims in life. She has four hands reaching out offering you wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation. At the end of the day reflect on how each of these came to you. This is known as gratitude. Each day look to create and appreciate. You will discover wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation are not that difficult to establish. Do not get caught up in the world of material wealth. Happiness is not found in the size of your bank account. Happiness is simple and pure. It cannot be bought. However, do seek to create wealth in the world. With material wealth we can build a better world that enjoys good health care, education, art, music, shelter and food for all. It is not wealth that destroys; it is greed. Seek to create and then create more. Each time you reach out make punja (good merits and remove papa (bad energy) and you will discover how to follow the four aims that lead to prosperity. Enjoy the pleasures of life, but remember even the so-called good pleasures can turn painful if you are not careful. Enjoy everything, but never to excess. Move in harmony with life. This means to become the observer and not the judge and jury. Discord and dissention will never bring you prosperity. Except things as they are and make peace with them. You can then reach out to change something, but do it from a place of acceptance and contentment. This will bring you liberation. If you have something you are struggling with, observe it and accept it for what it is right here right now. In a moment all things may change and what might be important today might be meaningless tomorrow. Count your blessings and appreciate everything for it is all just a great opportunity to learn, know and master life. Even anger can be a great teacher if you learn to observe it and then use it to remind yourself to be kind. Awareness is the key. In a world full of chaos and cruelty you will need balance, strength, flexibility and peace to navigate the pathway of prosperity. This requires work and that is karma; so, let’s get started END: Each day I ask Lakshmi to guide me. (I have a small statue of Lakshmi on my desk). I ask Lakshmi to guide me toward wealth, pleasure harmony and liberation. And she directs me. For example: One day I receive a royalty from one of my books. It was not a large amount of money, but it was a symbol of my success. I had produced a book and it was paying me money. I am wealthy. A friend called and we had a good laugh. I value her friendship. It gave me great pleasure. My timing was rhythmic as I moved through my workday. I accomplished what I set out to do. I moved in harmony with the universe. Something I wanted to happen did not. I accepted it and moved on without a hitch. It is liberating to fail, or not get what you want and still be happy and at peace. Something better will come my way if I reach out for more from a place of contentment. In this I am truly a prosperous woman. If you feel poor, unhappy, disjointed and imprisoned everyone around you will pick up on this energy. But if you aim for and find, even in the simplest of things, wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation you will attract what we all desire; prosperity with a purpose. Pay careful attention to energy, direction and consciousness. These three things will guide you towards prosperity. A prosperous world awaits anyone who follows the path with a balanced state of being and a clear mind. Walk, listen, look, feel, smell, taste, touch and intuit the world. Prosperity is everywhere. EGO: Flip your palms up and extend your index finger; the symbol of the go. Feel it pull you from your center. The ego believes itself to be intelligent and thus wise, but remember wisdom is more than intelligence. Wisdom is in knowing that everything constantly changes so don’t get attached to anything. It is also the realization that time has wings; it flies, so don’t waste it. Just remember – you never step into the same river twice – choose wisely, walk softly and stay on the path. Along the soulful path there will be many divergences and zigs and zags. There will be times when you will wander so far off the path you get lost. This is when you know you are being led by the go and not the soul. Pull your index finger in and place your thumb on top; the symbol of the soul. Use the world to realize your highest potential, or the world will use you. This is how you master life and prosper. Karma yoga teaches us that everything is simply cause and effect. What you think, say and do is what you become. Wisdom is in knowing that through your perceptions and attitudes you have the power to bring wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation into our life. To prosper you need to know how to work your karma and then how to keep your focus on the four aims or directions in life; wealth, pleasure, harmony and liberation. Then next you will need to know where to find the Nidhi; the container that holds the treasures of life. Next week we will begin to look for the Nidhi and its treasures.

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Lakshmi has four hands. She directs you to find wealth, pleasurer, harmony and liberation every day. Today we focus on liberation. The journey of life is not about your body or about your mind, but about your soul. We are here to understand life and thus to discover liberation. Don’t confuse liberation with having the freedom to do whatever you choose. Liberation means to reach a level of peace with life just as it is - it means to become the observer of life free of disturbance and judgement. With liberation comes wisdom. • Why is it so difficult to accept that change is the only absolute in life? We seek out the permanent aspect of everything because it makes us feel safe, content and connected. We try to control the impermanent aspects of life because the unknown causes us to feel anxious and fearful. But impermanence is exactly what we need if we are to find the ultimate prize of life, and that is liberation; the freedom to accept things and to let them come and go without attachment. There is a proverb that goes, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” This refers to the ever-changing element of nature held fast by the never changing essence of life. Everything in nature is constantly changing, right down to the molecules and cells of your body. But the underlying essence of life stays the same. Love, hatred, war, peace, feast and famine; life will always present us with these basic challenges of existence. It is our approach to these things that constantly changes. Since the beginning of time humans have raged war and conflict. How we approach it and what we call it has constantly changed. We will always need food and shelter. We will always seek love and acceptance and we will always feel fear and anxiety. This is a part of human nature. But if we can develop the ability to pause and catch a breath at the wonders of life, we will realize that everything is simply an opportunity. Become the observer of life and you will discover liberation. This takes work – that’s karma. Let’s get started END You are here to learn, know and master life and with this comes wisdom. Without all the experiences of life wisdom can never be found. One thing I know for sure about wisdom is that it doesn’t come easy and experiences don’t come without living a full life. To discover liberation is to embrace all of life without attachment. But never be indifferent. This leads to wisdom. Wisdom is sometimes defined as knowledge. But plenty of people have knowledge with little common sense, or judgment. Wisdom is far more than knowledge; however, it does require knowledge and experience. Wisdom is the ability to learn, know and master your life. Wisdom is in knowing the right path to walk. Integrity is walking it. This is the great challenge of life. EGO: Flip up your hand and extend out your index finger the symbol of your ego. With your eyes closed feel your ego pull you from your center. The ego gets caught up in attitude and believes this to be reality. Karma yoga reminds us that the entire world is simply our own projection. If you feel bound, you are bound, and if you feel liberated you are liberated. Pull your finger in and place you thumb on top – the symbol of your soul. A wise person knows that if you control your mind, you control everything. Then there is nothing left to bind you. You are liberated. Takes work and that’s karma!

Harmony Brings Prosperity

According to Karma yoga the whole material universe consists of five everlasting, enduring substances. It is through their relationship to each other that the whole world unfolds and evolves. Ideally there should be harmony and this will bring prosperity. These five enduring substances are space, motion, rest, matter and soul. Space is the container of everything; motion is required for energy to move and change to occur; and rest is necessary for matter to congeal or accumulate. You, and everything in the material world exist in this space as movement of energy that has congealed to create matter. The soul is the spark or the unifying energy that gives birth to our potential. Therefore, we and everything in the universe exist as matter, occupying space with the potential to create. What we create is what we become. Create harmony and you will prosper. For the most part relationships provide us with an opportunity to discover who we are. We relate to people, to places and to things. We relate to nature, technology, art, music, food and every aspect of life. It is when we are in the disharmony with these relationships that fear, anguish and disappointment are created. remember to remove the D-GAP- deceit, greed, anger and pride. Replace them with honesty, generosity, compassion and humility and in this you prosper. In all relationships, but more specifically in love relationships we are constantly moving between coming together and moving apart, holding on and letting go, yielding and taking the lead. Most people find this dance so difficult. Often, they find themselves deadlocked into opposing positions where they simply fight or take flight. Communication breaks down. Like Lakshmi and Shiva, the dance is either one of creation or destruction. The single biggest problem we face as human beings is communication. Without communication nothing would exist. From the tiniest form of life to the vast cosmos, every part of life is involved in the exchange of information and that is the essence of communication. The age of “information shock or overload” is upon us. Instant anywhere anytime information permeates our daily lives. The computer and the internet make it possible for us to instantly communicate anywhere in the world, any time, on almost any subject matter. The Internet has made us a global communication network. It has compressed time and space into a new reality and with this new reality come the stresses and strains of an evolving world. Although technology has the ability to open many doors of opportunity it equally brings with it added stress, competition and a feeling of information overload. These can lead to disharmony and is exactly why we need to consciously pay attention to how and what information we communicate, if we are to prosper. If you have ever experienced an inharmonious relationship either in your work, your family, your love life, or any aspect of your life, you know the feeling of anguish. It disrupts not only one part of your life, but disrupts all the other parts. Disharmony within a family causes disharmony at work, at play and to your health. Disharmony causes us to pull away, lose our footing, slip and fall into the D-GAP. This takes work that’s karma let; get started: END So how do we maintain a harmonious balance with life? How do we stay on the sharp edge of existence without being too close or too distant, or without the risk of losing ourselves? We want freedom and yet we strive for stability and commitment. We want love and yet we get angry. How can we get close to life, be familiar and comfortable, and at the same time return with a sense of passion and love? We must learn to walk the “middle way”. The middle way means to not become identified with anything: love or hate, happiness or depression, attachment or detachment. Instead, you simply come back to the present moment, putting aside all attachments to any position. Just remember right now one thing may be important, but circumstances will happen and tomorrow it may lose its significance. Harmony requires commitment, understanding, patience, and forgiveness, a lot of hard work, compromise, balance, flexibility, strength and respect. It means to put aside our attachment to being right, or even being wrong, and come back to the present moment and do what it takes to remove discord. Then just like in music, arrange the notes so that what we experience is melodic harmony. We now move gracefully in rhythm with life and this creates harmony. This is how to prosper. EGO Flip your palms up and extend you index finger – the symbol of your ego. Feel it pull you away from your center. Remember the whole material universe consists of five everlasting and imperishable substances; space, motion, rest, matter and soul. What’s important is how matter relates to other matter within the space it occupies. This is something we must constantly remind our ego; it is not the center of the universe. Pull your finger in and place your thumb on top – the symbol of the soul. How we relate to life creates either harmony or discord. All of life is equal, but different. And that is what makes life so interesting. Harmonize with life and the obstacles that block success will be removed and you will prosper.

Harmony – the third direction or aim in life

Lakshmi has four hands in which she suggests we follow or aim for these four things every day. The first is to bring wealth into your life. Wealth is not necessarily in the form of money. It may come to you in good health, in deep friendship, love, or creativity. If you find these things in your life you are a wealthy person. However, it is good for a society to be wealthy when the wealth is used to contribute to humanitarian causes such as good health care, education, art and decent living for all. Pleasure is the second aim. Pleasure is what drives life. If you laugh, enjoy the simple things and find joy in what you are doing you will find pleasure in your life. Just remember pleasure to extremes leads to pain. A wise person will always choose to do what is good over sheer pleasure. This can be interpreted a number of ways. One way is that a wise person will choose what is good over the pleasure of comfort, or a wise person will choose to seek pleasure through effort and depth over laziness and superficiality. It’s not pleasure that destroys the good. It is deceit and greed. The third aim to is create harmony. Harmony is the third direction or aim in life. This means to move in harmony with life and this requires a code of ethics and morals that act as beacons telling us how to behave. In yoga we would call these the Yamas and Niyamas. These basic suggestions give us a guide for creating harmony rather than disharmony. Disharmony creates discord and when we are in discord with the world prosperity is diminished. To use an analogy; when it comes to music harmony builds upon an already existing melody. In its more literal sense, a melody is a combination of pitch and rhythm. Rhythm is defined as the pulse, or beat of an activity. Plato made the observation that rhythm is “an order of movement.” So, for harmony to exist there must be an order to the movement of energy. It is so easy to get caught up in the dramas, problems and stresses of life and to believe them to be the final reality. All that happens in your life is simply an opportunity to discover and correct your karma. When you begin to understand this, you will discover how to bring rhythm and melody together to create harmony. Let’s get started. END The irony of life is that for all our outward striving and drama in the end the sum total always adds up to zero. We take none of the dramas, problems and stressors with us when we depart this world. What we do take is the karma of our experiences. How we use these experiences defines our next reincarnate. If life hands you a difficult problem and you face it with compassion and understanding you create harmony and not discord. It is not the problem you take with you when you depart this world, but the virtue of compassion and this will assist you in this life and all the others lives to come. EGO: Flip your palms upward and extend out your index finger and feel the ego pull you away from your center. By cultivating harmony, we develop compassion and understanding with all our relationships on earth. We move from being separate and bound by the ego to merging past the barriers that keep us apart and at odds. Pull your finger in and place your thumb on top, which is the symbol of your soul. When we develop impartiality towards all things of the world, we become one force of energy and with this the emotions of love, caring and empathy endure under all circumstances. However, impartiality does not mean to be indifferent. It means to be undisturbed by the ebb and flow of life. This is how we create harmony. Namaste ~ may you soul walk with health, happiness and peace and may you have a wealthy, pleasurable and harmonious life.

The Four Aims or Directions that Lead to Prosperity

Lakshmi has four hands and fours aims or direction for us to seek every day. The first is wealth remember what it is the second is pleasure today we are going to dig a little deeper into pleasure. The Katha Upanishad, from an ancient Hindu Text, teaches us to overcome pain by understanding it. We cannot bargain with life, but we can come to understand that all of life is a process that involves experiencing both pleasure and pain. It reminds us to not take our life for granted. Enjoy the pleasure found in the moments; earth life is short. But we must always be reminded to keep everything in balance; less we tip the scale from pleasure to pain. Pay attention to your craving and your desires. We are here on earth to understand our existence and to see how we can use all the experiences of life to broaden our knowledge. You cannot bargain with life or death, but you can make peace with these two opposing forces through good character, soulful aims, restraint, dutifulness, knowledge and the choices you consciously make. Pleasure has both a physical and emotional aspect. Pleasure is comprised of five layers; it is sensual, loving, has a purpose, is creative and exercises free will. All of these layers are important to humans. They bring us pleasure, but can equally bring us pain if we are not careful with our karma; pay attention to what and how you think, speak and act. Just remember all things in moderation. A wise person will always choose to do what is good over sheer pleasure. This can be interpreted a number of ways. One way is that a wise person will choose what is good over the pleasure of comfort, or a wise person will choose to seek pleasure through effort and depth over laziness and superficiality. Let’s get to work. END As well as being necessary for your survival, pleasure has many levels and layers. Just remember it can also be destructive if we allow pleasure to control our desires to the point of pain and addiction. But pleasure at the deeper layers of our being instills beauty and when pleasure and beauty come together, we truly understand the importance of enjoying the real pleasures of life. In harmony with life pleasures are never destructive, but always uplifting. Understanding this you will begin to prosper. It’s not pleasure that destroys the good. It is deceit and greed. We sometimes greedily deceive ourselves into believing we need more. That is why yoga teaches us to enjoy the pleasures of life, but always in moderation and never to excess. It is our desire for excess that tips pleasure into pain. But pleasure at the deeper layers of our being instills beauty and when pleasure and beauty come together, we truly understand the importance of enjoying the real pleasures of life. In harmony with life pleasures are never destructive, but always uplifting. Understanding this you will begin to prosper. EGO – flip up your palms and extend out your index finger. Feel it pull you from your center. The greatest pleasure comes from the depth of our soul. When we truly experience something, with full involvement, by tapping into its essence, we discover the true nature of pleasure. We sometimes call this being in the flow or in the moment. Whether it is eating chocolate, sipping a great wine, buying a gift, making love, or spending tons of money it’s not pleasure that should be avoided, but the greedy, deceitful, self-serving nature of the ego. The ego always wants and thinks it deserves more! Pull your ego in (index finger) and place your thumb (the symbol of your soul) on top. The soul will always remind you to Practice moderation in all things and in all things be moderate. With this you will discover true wealth and soulful pleasures. In this you prosper. Sensually connecting with someone you intimately love, for the purpose of creating, is the closest two souls can get to willful pleasure. The more aware you are of the nature of pleasure the more likely you are to discover it and use it wisely.

Soul Walking seek #pleaure and you will #prosper

RECAP Lakshmi has four hands that remind us to aim for four things each day and in this we will prosper. The first is wealth. Just remember it is not wealth that destroys it is greed. (One of the basic emotions of karma). Every day seek to bring wealth to your life. Wealth is not necessarily the accumulation of things. It comes to us through good health, a helping hand from a friend, or something we learn that helps us towards our goals. Reach out for wealth from a place of contentment and peace and then say to yourself, I am content and from here I reach out to bring wealth into my life. The second aim is pleasure The human drive is not simply to survive; it wants to thrive and to thrive we seek pleasure. We are programed to strive for survival and longevity and an essential part of this is the drive towards pleasure. What would the world be like if we could not enjoy the pleasures of life? Some interpretations of yoga appear to denounce pleasure. It is thought to distract us from our karmic work. But pleasure is as essential to life as air and water. It is the engine that drives us to create and thrive. The key is to never take pleasure to excess. Always be moderate and balanced. Seek balance in all things and in all things find balance. Your primitive brain also known as the limbic system is located in the temporal lobe at the base of your skull. The limbic system is made up of multiple parts such as the hippocampus which is your memory center. The basic drive for survival, sex, food and sleep all take place in the limbic system. The part that is responsible for basic pleasures and pain is the amygdala. The amygdala is our fear-based alarm system. Once fear and pain set in, we immediately seek to replace it with pleasure. The amygdala is the part of the limbic system which is involved with emotions and other reactions to stimuli. It contains many neurotransmitters with the central nucleus of the amygdala most strongly modulated by dopamine. In other words, it senses fear or threat and then reacts quickly to remove the fear or threat and replace it with our desire to experience pleasure rather than pain. Serotonin, as well as dopamine is a neurochemical that also effects our level of pain and pleasure. Both dopamine and serotonin need to be in sync if we are to be balanced. Where dopamine drives us towards pleasure, serotonin keeps us content, relaxed and satisfied. And although it can take pleasure to extremes dopamine is necessary for our survival and our ability to thrive. Therefore, the drive to seek pleasure is essential to both the survival and the thriving of human kind. END As well as being necessary for your survival, pleasure has many levels and layers. Just remember it can also be destructive if we allow pleasure to control our desires to the point of addiction. But pleasure at the deeper layers of our being instills beauty and when pleasure and beauty come together, we truly understand the importance of enjoying the real pleasures of life. In harmony with life pleasures are never destructive, but always uplifting. Understanding this you will begin to prosper. It’s not pleasure that destroys the good. It is deceit and greed. We sometimes greedily deceive ourselves into believing we need more. That is why yoga teaches us to enjoy life, but always in moderation and never to excess. It is our desire for excess that tips pleasure into pain. Just ask an addict how much pleasure there is in seeking the next fix? EGO: Flip your hands up and extend our index finger the symbol of your ego. The ego seeks to survive and part of the process of survival is to seek pleasure. The ego can be quite selfish when it comes to pleasure. It sometime seeks to fulfill this need with false and temporary symbols of pleasure rather than the pure essence of pleasure. Pull your ego in and place your thumb (soul) on top. The soul seeks pleasure in the simple things in life. The soul’s mission is to learn and evolve. This takes works that’s karma. When pleasure is experiences as gratitude and appreciation for the pure joy of living a full life, a person becomes prosperous. Seek to find true wealth and pleasure every day and you will truly be a prosperous soul. Next week we will continue with seeking pleasure… This week ask Lakshmi to bring you wealth and pleasure and then reach out with contentment and gratitude and you will prosper. Namaste ~ may you soul walk with health happiness and peace. Doctor Lynn For books, classes and private consultation http://www.doctorlynn.com

What are the Four Directions or Aims in Life that will Lead to Prosperity?

What are the Four Directions or Aims in Life that will Lead to Prosperity? Lakshmi presents us with four main directions, aims, or goals in life. Understand and follow these and you will prosper. You get limited opportunities in life. Make use of them because life is short. Most of the time it is your actions(karma) that determine your destiny; but sometimes a time gate will open and you will get chances, or opportunities to improve things, or redirect your life in the direction of your desires and dreams. You must remain steadfast in your aims. The first direction or aim in life is the accumulation of wealth. Don’t confuse wealth for money. Money in and of itself is valueless. It is only what we can purchase in exchange for money that gives it value. Wealth is abundant potential energy. The Kama Sutra, a Hindu Sanskrit text, makes it clear that health, love and pleasure, as well as music, art and education can only flourish in a prosperous society. Poverty therefore is not a virtue. It can actually be an obstacle toward creating harmony. Poverty can also be an obstacle when it comes to morals and ethics. It is somewhat difficult to be moral and ethical when you are starving and struggling to survive. Material wealth allows for the refinement of society and this refinement allows us to partake of pleasure, be kinder and more generous. Wealth is not just about the accumulation of money or material goods, although both have the power to make the world a better place. Wealth comes in many forms such as good health, love, happiness and rewarding work. Many people get lost in the illusion of material wealth and confuse the earthly symbols of wealth for success. Success is measured by the degree of your happiness and not the size of your bank account. END: In this world no one would argue that it is better to be rich than poor. Wealthy people have greater access to the necessities and the luxuries of life. Wealth affords more options and choices. But just remember this - it is not wealth that destroys. It is greed. Problems arise when wealth is used to control other people and to abuse society. In a world such as ours, with so much wealth, no person should ever go without or be abused. So, if you want to prosper, find a way to make the world a better place and you will become a wealthy person. Just remember the difference between wealth and material possessions. Wealth can mean having beauty, love and good health, and these can never be replaced with gold, money or other material possessions. Your true wealth comes from within. It is the source of your abundant energy and this energy has the power to create. Draw from it, create and you will prosper. Once found this cosmic energy can never be depleted. Just remember that energy is never lost it simply changes form. As long as the universe exist there will be infinite opportunity to tap into this abundant energy and with it create prosperity. Money may come and go, or slip past your outstretched hand, but if you use your abundant energy wisely you will always create wealth and with this you prosper. EGO: Flip your hands up and point out your index finger – the symbol of your ego. Feel the ego pull you away from your center. Material symbols of wealth can pull us away from our karmic work. The pull causes desires and expectations and these will always cause us to be restless and discontent. Pull your finger in and place your thumb on top – the symbol of your soul. The soul who seeks wealth by finding a positive and healthy way to fill a need will use wealth to make life a better place and this is truly how you prosper. So, look each day for the small symbols of wealth and use them to reach out from a place of contentment, be grateful for what you have, and then say it could be more; and then use that more to make your life and the world a better place. Namaste ~ may you Soul Walk the path of life with health happiness and peace Doctor Lynn For books, private consultation and ore http://www.doctorlynn.com

The Energy of Prosperity

Everything in life is a byproduct of energy. Therefore, if we wish to be successful in life, we must learn how to harness the energy of prosperity. Padmini Vidya is the yoga of prosperity. Padmini means lady of the lotus and vidya means the science of yoga. The lady of the lotus refers to Lakshmi the goddess of wealth and purity. Lakshmi the Goddess energy of prosperity is a powerful force. Her name means, “aim” or “goal”. She has four arms which signify her power to grant the four goals, or directions towards a successful and prosperous life: wealth (artha), worldly pleasure (kama sutra), harmony by adhering to a good moral and ethical code (dharma) and soulful liberation (moksha). These four goals grant us a fulfilling and prosperous life. The aim of the goals is to direct your highest potential into creating a prosperous life. Takes focus. Takes work. That’s karma let’s get started END Lakshmi reminds us that affluence should be respected because in reality affluence is a forceful stream of energy that has great power. It can create or destroy depending upon how we use it. Yoga encourages us to prosper while consciously paying attention to how we use our energy. Life is a dance of creation and destruction. If you want to bring prosperity into your life, let the energy of prosperity flow out towards others. Apply the Golden Rule of prosperity; do not take without giving back. Those who lookout for ways to help other and ways to contribute to the betterment of life, without expecting anything in return are sure to prosper. They have found a need and are fulfilling it. This brings us wealth in many forms. Whatever you have increase it. Instead of saying it could be less; say it could be more but do it from a place of consciousness contentment and peace. EGO: the ego likes to adorn itself with symbols of wealth. Its job is to preserve life and so it is constantly on the lookout for way to protect its individual life and give it importance. But the material symbols come and go. Pull in your finger and place the thumb on top. The only way to preserve eternal life is to understand and constructively use the energy of Padmini vidya to create what is good and destroy what is not. But be careful because what one culture may consider good another may consider bad. So, it is the task of your soul to search inside, work your karma and live your life with a focus on self and what self is being and doing. The work is about you and this is the law of karma and the pathway to prosperity. “Although you may gather a million gold coins, upon death, you cannot take with you even one copper penny.” (Chinese Proverb) Next week we will begin to work the first goal or aim of Lakshmi. Remember ~ Life becomes what life does ~ so work hard to master your karma and you will begin to prosper.
