Vol. 10 pg 27 (07-07-11) SILENCE

AFFIRMATION

I am becoming one with God in the Silence.

I crawled out of bed this morning and immediately switched on the television to hear the latest news, put in a load of laundry and started my dishwasher.

I sat down to my computer and was overwhelmed by the cacophony of sounds around me. And then the air conditioning turned on and my phone started ringing (my cell phone with the irritating tinny music).

I felt like screaming – particularly since the television was on a local news station and all I was hearing was horrific news of murders, burglary, cheating in schools and forecasts of miserable weather.

So, I turned everything off – crawled back into bed and started meditating. AH! I contemplated a spiritual day with just silence!

In the stillness I realized that silence is vastly undervalued in our culture. It’s impossible to escape the ringing of cell phones, blasts of music or television in homes, work places, airports, or in the mall. It’s hard to think, harder still to know what you feel or to hear God whispering to your heart and soul.

Seers and saints say that ‘Silence is Golden.’ Their words have a deeper meaning and an even deeper import. Science has proven that ‘Silence’ enhances the Creative Potential of an individual. Silence is not just being quiet. It is not just keeping the mouth ‘shut’ and going mute. Silence is becoming tranquil. Silence is tuning down the noises of the senses. Silence is avoiding totally the ‘unnecessary.’

In today’s overwhelming noise it is difficult to attain total silence. Even though, many religious practices encourage “quietude” or “silence” to attain spirituality.

One or our best examples is India, a haven of spirituality since ages immemorial. There are many tales and legends of saints and sages seeking respite in the woods, mountains and hills observing silence for years. This intentional silence and meditation bestowed upon them indescribable divine powers. They had within them a reservoir of sacred energy. Their words used on purpose had great impact, almost oracular. They created as they spoke. Such is the power of Silence.

Intentional Silence, Meditation, chanting of mantras, and yoga are a few of the tools that aid and escalate a person’s spiritual level. Silence is not just keeping quiet and watching your favorite TV sit-com. It is also silencing the urges of your eyes and ears. Silence is not silently munching your favorite burger; silence is quieting the urge to have one. In other words Intentional Silence is saying ‘no’ to things that may not have any value of being done or carried out in that moment. It is like accumulating energy in order to use it for constructive purposes beneficial to all.

There is no hard and fast rule that Silence is to be practiced only by Hindus. It can be practiced by any person who wants to heighten his/her levels of awareness. Any person whether a Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Jew or Christian can become silent in order to attain spiritual excellence. You don’t need to seek respite in some woods or mountain caves. You can stay amidst civilization and silently strive to become spiritually quiet.

The benefits of being silent are for one and all. Students, housewives, professionals and even UCM ministers can abstain from talking at least for a few minutes or a couple of hours. While not talking it is essential you stop listening to rock bands, watching tragicomic serials, or the evening news and movies on TV.

Silence is looking into self to become self aware.

Benefits of observing Silence:

1. Heightened spiritual awareness
2. It gives you a lot of tranquility and spiritual satisfaction
3. It will protect you from negative effects of chattering and gossip
4. It will conserve your energy levels
5. It will dampen your anger
6. Your creative potential will increase by many times
7. You will realize the importance of speech
8. Your personality stands totally refined
9. You will grow above mundane thoughts
10. You will have attained loads of contentment.

If you are committed to following a path of personal and spiritual growth, silence is a helpful tool. Even if you’re surrounded by noise, take a few minutes to pause and reflect on the power of silence. Maybe you can’t be silent for an entire hour – then utilize 20 minutes every day, to restore, heal and reveal the unexpected.

John of the Cross reminds us that silence is God’s first language “and one of the Desert Fathers wrote it is by silence that the saints grew, that it was because of silence that the power of God dwelt in them…

Shri Ravi Shankar says If you want to make sense it has to come from silence.  Practice silence and become golden.

Talk is talk; silence is wisdom, according to an Algonquin saying

“The silence sings. It is musical. I remember a night when it was audible. I heard the unspeakable.

Henry David Thoreau

       All profound things and emotions of things are preceded and attended by silence. Herman Melville 

Silence Isn’t Always Golden!

Once upon a time, there was a prince cast under a spell. The prince could speak only one word each year. However, he could save up words if he did not speak for an entire year. The following year he was allowed to speak two words. (This was before the time of e-mails, letter writing or sign language.)

One day, he met a beautiful princess (ruby lips, golden hair, sapphire eyes) and fell madly in love. With great difficulty, he refrained from speaking for 2 years so he could look at her and say, “My darling.” But at the end of these 2 years, he wished to say that he loved her. So he waited 3 more years; bringing the total number of silent years to 5.

At the end of these 5 years, he realized he had to ask her to marry him. So he waited another 4 years without speaking.

Finally, as the 9th year of silence ended, his joy knew no bounds. Leading the lovely princess to the most secluded and romantic place in the beautiful royal garden, the prince heaped a hundred red roses on her lap, knelt before her, and taking her hand in his, said, “My darling, I love you! Will you marry me?”

And the princess tucked a strand of golden hair behind her dainty ear, opened her sapphire eyes in wonder, and parting her ruby lips, said, “Pardon?”

Saros Series 13 South New
A new eclipse series joins us
By Bernadette Brady M.A.

Inex-Saros cycle lunar eclipse panorama, years...

Image via Wikipedia

Eclipses run in cycles and these cycles were discovered in 747 BCE by the Mesopotamian astrologer/astronomers. These cycles were called Saros Series or cycles by the Greek lexicographer Suidas in the 10th century (the word saros means repetition or to be repeated). Once a cycle begins it will produce an eclipse every 18 years 9-11 days later (depending on the number of leap years involved). Each eclipse in the series will occur 1/2 to a full

degree closer or further to the actual nodal axis. When the series begins it will produce an eclipse which is 15-to-18 degrees in front of the nodal axis. (For example, this particular eclipse on the 1st July will be at 9 Cancer and the node is at 22 Gemini). Every subsequent eclipse in the series will be just a little bit closer to the node. It will eventually produce an eclipse conjunct the transiting node in 650 years. This eclipse will occur over the equator and it will be total. After this ‘middle’ eclipse the series produces eclipses around 1 degree behind the nodal axis and eventually in another 650 years it will produce a tiny partial eclipse which will be around 15 degrees behind the nodal axis.

This new series will, like other series, contain 72 eclipses (+/- 1). It will produce its first eclipse on 1st July 2011 and will not produce its last eclipse until 3237. A Saros Series is most relevant for mundane astrology, not only countries but ideas and concepts. There are 38 – 39 families of eclipses active at any one historical period. [All of this eclipse information is covered in detail in my book ‘Predictive Astrology – the Eagle and the Lark’. If you own this book, cut out this section and stick it into the book so you have it as reference material.] This new series will be Saros Series 13 New South (to use the Jansky naming system) or Saros Series 156 (van den Bergh numbering system).

This series is ‘born’ on the 1st July 2011 and as I pointed out in the last newsletter,

 http://www.zyntara.com/VisualAstrologyNewsletters/van_May2011/van_may2011.html

it captures in its birth chart a Grand Cross involving the New Moon in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. The closest midpoints (45 degree module) are Pluto on the midpoint of Mars/Jupiter and Jupiter on the midpoint of The Sun/Neptune.

This theme of this entire series will be about undertaking and or completing large endeavors. At a personal level hard struggles begin to resolve, old thorny issues begin to untangle and the too-hard problems start to become clear.

Added to this Grand Cross is the energy of the tightest midpoints and these are Pluto to Mars/Jupiter which suggests extraordinary effort and achievement PLUS Jupiter to New Moon/Neptune which brings long and difficult issues to gentle conclusions through inspiration or the insight of a bright idea.

So if you are stuck or jammed on an issue at the moment apply your mind and give yourself permission to ‘think outside the box’ or do a little active imagination to help find solutions. Old problems can be solved in this period.

This eclipse is also happening amongst the stars of Gemini which, within the Assyrian astrologer/priests’ letters to their kings, usually indicates the death of a king or the ending of an issue. So endings… but endings of problems, the ending of ‘old’ things which then allows a fresh approach to life.

In the year 3237, astrologers will look back and see what themes began around July 1, 2011.  News stories that start six months on either side of the Saros start date will have an influence; the closer to the date the stronger.

An interesting news article I saw was particles of anti-matter have been captured! Maybe this is the beginning of the fuel that will launch on species into deep space….like Star Trek.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/110694-CERN-Scientists-Capture-Antimatter-For-Record-16-Minutes

In the May 2011 blog I wrote: The mixture of the Raymond Davis incident and the attack Seal Team Six combination, along with the nuclear backpacks will have blowback by the Solstice, June 21st.

Nuclear backpacks?  Yes, a cute little device developed by the Soviets….many of these devices was not accounted for after the USSR collapsed.

Please read the article below.  The people trying to sell the Russian made Uranium 235 were captured!  Lucky us!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13968903

With Uranus going retrograde on the 9th, you will hear many stories about electrical, computer and car problems.  In esoteric astrology Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury…..so Uranus retro has a similar effect.  It will be interesting to see if anything happens to the Grid and Web the weekend of the 9th.

RETREAT:  My next Women’s retreat will be the weekend of October 28-30 in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

This is an intimate retreat for 12 women only!

AFFIRMATION

I am Spiritually Healthy and Happy

Relax, and remember how truly beautiful and unique you are. Relax, and remember how positively powerful you can be.

Don’t waste your time wishing for something outside of you to magically make your life easier. Instead, make life easy on yourself by making full use of your magnificent capabilities.

The pain of what you worry about is mostly in the worry itself. The joy you seek to experience is yours as soon as you allow it to be.

Feel how truly good you know your life can be. Act on those feelings, right now, and the goodness comes to life.

Most of the difficulties are difficult only because you have decided they are. Gratefully embrace them, and you’ll touch their positive value.

Remind yourself how good life can be. From there, you can make it even better.

Written by Ralph Marston – submitted by Rev. Maria Vera

How does spirituality influence the health of our country?

While experts are looking into helping people get well and survive in the United States, spirituality has not been forgotten. It has been found that spiritual practices improve coping skills and social support, foster feelings of optimism and hope, promote healthy behavior, reduce feelings of depression and anxiety, and encourage a sense of relaxation.

Spiritual experiences contribute to: Positive psychological attitudes; Reduction of medical symptoms; improved quality of life, less burdened by illness; Greater life satisfaction; Lower blood pressure; Lower mortality rates from coronary artery disease and cardiac surgery; improved obstetric outcomes; and, Utilization of fewer health services in general.

Wow, just think – going to a spiritualist church, meditating or praying daily, using spiritual tools to alleviate stressful feelings can influence immune, cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) hormonal and nervous systems.

People who have a faith in a Creator/Divine/Mother/Father God, compassion toward others, a sense of inner peace, and attend spiritual services have a better chance of surviving for a longer time than those who do not live with such belief systems. Qualities like faith, hope, and forgiveness, and the use of social support, meditation and prayer seem to have a noticeable effect on health and healing on individuals and on the country in which they live.

·        Hope. — A positive attitude that a person assumes in the face of difficulty.

·        Forgiveness. — A practice encouraged by many spiritual traditions, forgiveness is a release of hostility and resentment from past hurts.

·        Love and Social Support. — A close network of family and friends that lends help and emotional support has been found to offer protection against many diseases and an increased sense of patriotism. Come get your fill at CCL!

·        Prayer. — Today, many Americans believe that prayer is an important part of daily life. In a 2006 poll, more than one half of doctors reported that they believe prayer and meditation help patients, and 67% reported praying for a patient. Researchers are studying intercessory prayer (asking a higher power to intervene on behalf of another either known or unknown to the person praying. Although it is particularly difficult to study the effect of distance prayer, current research in coronary care units (intensive care units in hospitals devoted to people who just suffered a heart attack) suggests there is benefit. In this study, compared to those who were not prayed for, patients who were prayed for showed general improvements in the course of their illness, less complications, and even fewer deaths suggesting that prayer does help.

What illnesses and conditions respond well to spirituality?

Programs with a strong spiritual component, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), show that spiritual disciplines may be especially effective for drug and alcohol addiction. The regular practice of prayer and meditation is strongly associated with recovery and abstinence from drugs.

Results from several studies indicate that people with strong spiritual beliefs heal faster from surgery, are less anxious and depressed, have lower blood pressure, and cope better with chronic illnesses such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and spinal cord injury.

One clinical study at Duke University found that people who attend regular spiritual services tend to have better immune function. In another clinical study of 232 older adults undergoing heart surgery, those who were religious were 3 times less likely to die within the 6 months after surgery than those who were not.

What is the future of spirituality in medical practice?

Many medical schools in the United States have included spiritual teachings in their curricula. This will result in fewer medical bills and better medical benefits in America.

Why don’t Buddhists vacuum in the corners?
Because they have no attachments.

I want to thank all of you who have accessed Amazon through our links on the Joyful Noise and/or our Website. You of course can still purchase from Amazon.com directly, we will no longer receive the fees associated with going through our links. Again thank you for your participation.
