Recon Marine by AlexJJessup


In high school most of my pals were army brats. Although we admired Marines, few of us intended to sign up for that branch of service. During the next fifty years I knew as a close friend only one Marine who lived long enough to retire from service. Yesterday July 29th 2014 I met two Marine veterans as they too met me and one another, instantly recognizing each other as brothers in arms, perhaps due tatts (and perhaps due stance and attitude)—each of whom had served four years, each of whom had seen no combat, with a full three decades between their terms of service. They instantly bonded and discussed places of service, ranks, duties, and base names. Bonding as if no time existed. All without having shared a single battle.Semper Fi

"If we do not include relationships in our spiritual practice, we often lose our realization as soon as we encounter another human being."

"Although our fundamental dimension of consciousness is referred to in spiritual teachings, it is just beginning to gain recognition in the psychological field. Up until recently, it was thought, in the more adventurous schools of psychology, physics, and medicine, that energy was the basic stratum of life. Energy, which is movement, such as flow, pulsation, or vibration, is easier to perceive and to feel than consciousness. The energy dimension is a spectrum in itself, from denser to subtler vibrations. When we realize ourselves as fundamental consciousness, we also reach the most subtle aspect of the energy spectrum. But we can experience the movement of energy without accessing the pervasive stillness of fundamental consciousness. Therefore, the application of fundamental consciousness to psychological and physical healing represents the cutting edge of the human growth movement." ~Dr. Judith Blackstone

You need not stop thinking. Just cease being interested. It is disinterestedness that liberates. Don’t hold on, that is all.
Nisargadatta Maharaj (via roguei)

Beedi Baba, are you pointing to “Just cease being distracted by homeless thoughts. It is distraction with them which leads to interest, and interest to fascination, and that to addiction, and that to tv:

Mmmm I loves me my matrix steaks”

Or did you just need a light?

God’s Word, paraphrased, is intuition and wisdom

"In the first chapter of his book Long Journey Home, Os Guinness lists what he believes to be the three requirements for a fulfilling life:

A clear sense of personal identity.
A strong sense of personal purpose.
A deep sense of life’s meaning.

Guinness goes on to note that, “In our time, people search for meaning because we are haunted by having too much to live with and too little to live for.” We are haunted by the gap between what we dreamed we’d be when we grew up and what we have become on the journey.
We thought we would make a difference, but we spend most of our days the way we do because we need to make money.
We dreamed of becoming a person of compassion and grace, but, somehow, we became cynical and negative.
Most of us have much more than our grandparents ever dreamed of, but our lives seem much emptier.
The Psalmist said that in God’s eyes we are always young:

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and do not forget all God’s benefits—
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good as long as you live
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103:1-5

In the paraphrase The Message that last verse is rendered, “God renews your youth—so you’re always young as you soar in God’s presence.”

I don’t think that means that God’s name for us is the nickname we were called as children, but I do think that the Psalmist is trying to say that God sees us as we were before our hopes and dreams began to shrink; before passion and faith and optimism got displaced by frustration, bitterness, and cynicism.

I don’t mean to say that God sees us as we used to be, nor as we might have been. I think God sees the true person we really are buried under the dust of life that has accumulated on our wings.

Blessings,

Rev. Michael Piazza
The Center for Progressive Renewal”

There are days

when I feel like dying

but I’m not talking

about slashing wrist

or hanging my neck on a noose

or jumping out of a cliff

those would be

much too cowardly  

what I mean

by death

is to walk

in voluntary

into a battlefield

under raining missiles

where my body

shall be the armour

to those kids whose bones

cannot

carry them any longer

I have decided

long ago

if I were

to end my life

I might as well die hanging

my corpse 

for a glimpse of sunrise

in their eyes  .  .  .

Everyone has three demons in them:
1. The demon of desire
2. The demon of the mind
3. The demon of evil will
These are known in esoteric psychology as the Three Traitors.
These three demons work in the three brains(intellectual, emotional, and motor/instinctual/sexual centers) of the human biped to keep their Essence bottled up in suffering.
These demons enslave the whole world.
To be free from them we need Buddhist Annihilation(complete death of the ego).
We need to die(psychologically).
When we release ourselves from these demons, what we really are can escape from the prison we’ve made for it and it can experience the Truth(Samadhi, Ecstasy)
We need to die from moment to moment. (via theperfectsolution144)
