The World – A Buddhist Perception ~ WOMEN in RECOVERY

SYMBOLIC MEANING OF STUPAS, Shirlee Hall

Dearest souls, I had a very lengthy and inspiring vision about 6 weeks ago. An actual conversation took place with an unseen intelligence. The Voice gave a name to what I was seeing, 'STUPA'. I didn't have a clue as to what it meant but knew somehow it was connected to India. It turns out Buddha's ashes were divided into 8 containers and each container had one of these structures, stupas, over the container. It is a sacred structure representing the chakra system and much, much … [Read more...]

There, I have broken through the cordon of equality and stand alone as an individual. I am absolutely … [Read more...]

Some of this information may resonate for you. Other concepts may not be comfortable for you. Each of us must examine new information and discern … [Read more...]

Buddha’s final leg of his inner journey wasn’t easy; facing our nasty side never is. As much as we may want to think ourselves out of a bad mood, painful story or ranting rage, we can’t. The game of Life isn’t wired that way. Buddha didn’t slice through his negative emotions through thinking; … [Read more...]

Karma, 5 supernatural factors of Taking Action

TALK is CHEAP,THOUGHT is DEEP, yet with ACTION You REAP. Movement of any machine is not called as ‘karma’ because any work to be called as ‘karma’ must be done by a living being. Involuntary movements of millions of our body cells resulting in the functions such as blood circulation, food digestion, breathing etc are not called as ‘karmas’ because of the absence of ‘active I consciousness’. Lord Krishna says in Gita – “Every action of a man is caused by … [Read more...]
