What Is Your Mindfulness?
It's okay to laugh during these if you want. Did you get all of them? I think he was being funny today.
Today Manjushri asks you, what is your mindfulness? He explained his. Do you recall what he said his mindfulness was? He said, “My joyful radiance is my perpetual emanation of mindfulness.” So his mindfulness is joyful radiance. So what is yours? In other words, the Master is saying not all mindfulness is the same. You can have your individualization, your personal stamp upon Buddhic mindfulness that flows through your awareness. And for each person that might look a little different, and it is beautiful. It's acceptable and it's wonderful. As you meditate day by day, this is the ninth day of his release on Mindfulness Moments, you must take in and drink in that which is of your own Buddha nature, your own mindfulness in order to fully realize your own potential, which he said must become kinetic. In other words it must become active and dynamic in movement rather than just static.
Does anyone have something to share about your own personal mindfulness?
Participant: Mine is short and brief: peace and harmony.
Participant: Nonreaction. MMaybe the word is acceptance of everything that comes along.
David: The acceptance of everything that comes along doesn't mean that you are illogical or that you are indifferent in the sense that you don't care. It means that you have risen into Buddhic indifference, which is one of those qualities of Buddhic mindfulness, which is, come what may you will remain in the center of being. You will not be swayed by others' emotions, their charged energies, their attempts to divert you from the coursing of your spirit. You are indifferent to the human dimension and plane of duality and you stay centered. That'ss what I see you're saying, right? When you say, “come what may,” you're remaining in that state. It's nonduality.
Participant: A lot of us have never really known what indifference meant. Yours was a very good definition of it, acceptance. In other words, being able to take stuff, observe stuff and not get entangled in it.
Participant: My mindfulness is more and more on the Cave of Symbols, Saint Germain, Godfre and Lotus, Daniel and Nada Rayborn, and so on. At some time, if Manjushri can tell us, or somebody can tell us, more about the Cave of Symbols and Table Mountain, I would like that.
David: You have stated that your mindfulness is dependent on or is focused on those other masters and the Cave of Symbols. Is that your personal mindfulness or are you focusing on those things, those masters and that sacred space, which is a retreat of the Brotherhood. In other words, that's where you're placing your attention, but is that really your personal mindfulness?
Participant: Yes, I believe so. At least a good part of my mindfulness is tuning in or striving to tune into the Cave of Symbols and into Table Mountain and all that is associated with that retreat, and also the Cave of Light.
David: So what you are saying is that at this point of your life, that is what you are focusing on. I think Manjushri is asking what your personal emanation is. You are still putting your attention on something else outside of yourself and trying to discern and study and understand those masters and that sacred space. Ultimately what are you gleaning from and what are you incorporating and assimilating of those experiences with those masters that becomes a part of your own personal emanation? That's what he's saying today. What is your emanation of mindfulness? How do you experience it? How does it wend its way through your awareness? What have you become of it?
Participant:More and more, my mindfulness or radiance is the desire to be joyful love. To me, joy and love are the two greatest qualities. Saint Germain talks about generating love without limit. My desire, my mindfulness is to generate, to emanate, to radiate joyful love without limit.
David: That's more precise, to the point. You've gleaned all these wonderful teachings from these masters from your experience in the Cave of Symbols to incorporate them fully into your being so that's what you radiate. Wonderful.
So the Master punned a little bit today; a leash on life instead of a lease on life. He talked a little about the trident, which is a three-pronged, sacred implement, or tool, or talisman, that Neptune uses as indicative of the threefold flame. Because Neptune is the master of the emotional body, the water plane, when we balance the threefold flame within our emotional bodies, he offers the use of his sacred trident. That symbology is powerful.
Participant: Was that misqualified as a symbol of the pitchfork of the devil, the trident of Neptune?
David: Sure, that's the perversion.
Participant: The perversion of the threefold flame was the devil's pitchfork.
David: So what was the pun on the Middle Earth? He said the Buddha of the Ruby Ray abides beyond the Middle Earth. The Middle Earth is J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, from the trilogy on the Lord of the Rings. I hope you got it. He lives in the center of the earth, in the middle of the earth. Then he gets practical and says “Whole-grain muesli in meals is best.” Some muesli is not whole grain.
Participant: They're not? What are they?
David: Sometimes they're rolled oats. Is that whole oats? I think there is more to it.
Participant: I think he is emphasizing to eat whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, whole corn, millet.
Participant: You can't use those in muesli.
David: You can soak it. “The Buddhic mind hasn't grasped at anything; it has fully grasped all.” When you study a lot of Buddhic teachings, they talk about grasping. And that's not the way, is it? When you're clutching, when you're trying to get something, it attaches you to that thing. So you don't want to grasp at things; you do want to understand or grasp intellectually and mindfully all.
The maric twin—what is that? “Remand the death consciousness of your own maric twin to its final resting place.”
Participant: Sounds like the dweller.
David: In the movie The Little Buddha there's a fantastic representation of Gautama under the bo tree and he sees himself in the reflection in the water beneath him, and then that becomes Mara because it's the opposite of himself.
Participant: So that would be the shadow self?
David: The shadow self, the maric twin, the dweller. “Through the earth-touching mudra with me.” He's saying that we can give that earth-touching mudra with him. So let's do that now and give our vajra, the earth_touching mudra. If you want to actually touch the floor or the ground where you are, you can. We are going to remand the death consciousness to its final resting place: doubt, fear, human questioning, records of death. We're in the cycle of Virgo right now, which poles with the two o'clock line. So let's give the vajra as we touch the floor.
[David and partcipants give the vajra mantra nine times.]
I think it's great that the Buddhas are the new trendsetters. They probably have always been. We're probably just now realizing it.
“Gaining ground in adeptship means fully accepting your Buddha nature no matter what the cost to your lower self.” I think we have all experienced that when we have placed our trust in God and when we have embraced the teaching and we have stepped out of the mold of humanity and the mass consciousness that we have possibly temporarily lost influence, sway or we've lost something of the human and the lower self, yet we've gained greatly in our spiritual path.
When he said “to realize your intention is to first set it, then vet it and then let it be.” What does vet mean? What does it mean when you vet something? I looked it up in the dictionary. It's when you really dig deeply into an understanding of something. It actually is from the same root as veterinarian, who is one who understands everything about animals. To vet something is to really dig deeply, to fully study it and understand it. That is really what it means. To realize your intention, you have to first have one and then you set it. Set your intention. Then you really study it. You dig deeply and go into it and then you let it be. You accept it. You fully anchor it by accepting it as manifest.
Sometimes with these mindfulness moments and any of the masters' teachings that have been released, you have to go to the dictionary. You may have to unravel the inner meaning. I've been working with someone who's translating the Morya book Now, Zen and Always into Spanish, and we're working regularly on trying to help those who will be reading this in a Spanish translation to understand what the inner meanings of a lot of these words are. I encourage you, even though we haven't done this until today, to go back and read and study the Mindfulness Moments of Manjushri and try to dig to the core of what he means.
Do you have another definition of vet?
Participant: To work as a veterinarian. To submit for verification by those familiar with the object or subject in question. To have an expert check it.”
David: That's the definition.
