Eating disorders are not glamorous. They are laying awake at night with the smell of rotten food attacking you because you’re too ashamed to throw out the remains of what you’ve started eating, but couldn’t finish. They are sitting in your neighbor’s house when you’re supposed to be watching the kids, wondering if you should call an ambulance because you’ve just vomited blood. They are awkward stare-downs in the school bathroom when you walk out of the stall and the most popular girl ever just heard your self destruction. They are sitting in a doctor’s office for three hours while they wait for a urine sample that you can’t give them because you have nothing in your body. They are messy rooms and balding heads and sunken eyes and clothes stained with vomit and crying loved ones and pain and anguish and torture for not only the one suffering but for everyone around her too. Eating disorders are not glamorous.

Mountains and Rivers

‘There is a Zen saying that goes: “When I fist was practicing the Way, there were mountains and rivers. After I practiced for thirty years, I understood there are no mountains and no rivers. Now, finally, there are mountains and rivers again.” But these mountains and rivers walk and talk. These mountains and rivers leap through the sky and boogie in the basement. These mountains and rivers are the fully realized mountains and rivers, because these mountains and rivers are based on the understanding that there aren’t any mountains and rivers. We can’t really understand that there are no mountains and rivers until we understand mountains and rivers. We can’t really understand mountains and rivers until we understand that there are no mountains and rivers.’

- Reb Anderson, The Third Turning of the Wheel: Wisdom of the Samdhinirmocana Sutra.

I’m going to continue being completely shameless at this point and put this up again:

Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness. Emotional actions are the most contracted, narrowing, dangerous form of behavior.

The romantic poetry and fiction of the last 200 years has quite blinded us to the fact that emotions are an active and harmful form of stupor.

Any peasant can tell you that. Beware of emotions. Any child can tell you that. Watch out for the emotional person. He is a lurching lunatic.

Emotions are caused by biochemical secretions in the body to serve during the state of acute emergency. An emotional person is a blind, crazed maniac. Emotions are addictive and narcotic and stupefacient.

Do not trust anyone who comes on emotional.

What are the emotions? In a book entitled Interpersonal Diagnosis of Personality, written when I was a psychologist, I presented classifications of emotions and detailed descriptions of their moderate and extreme manifestations. Emotions are all based on fear. […]

The emotional person cannot think; he cannot perform any effective game action (except in acts of physical aggression and strength). The emotional person is turned off sensually. His body is a churning robot. […]

The only state in which we can learn, harmonize, grow, merge, join, understand is the absence of emotion. This is called bliss or ecstasy, attained through centering the emotions. […]

Conscious love is not an emotion; it is serene merging with yourself, with other people, with other forms of energy. Love cannot exist in an emotional state. […]

The great kick of the mystic experience, the exultant, ecstatic hit, is the sudden relief from emotional pressure.

Did you imagine that there could be emotions in heaven? Emotions are closely tied to ego games. Check your emotions at the door to paradise.

—  Timothy Leary

“Return of the #Djedi” is synonymous with “Raising #Consciousness” or “Raising #Awareness” Who were/are the Djedi? The “Djedi” (same as #Jedi)were the “stable ones”– #wisdom keepers of one #mind and one #spirit who, as initiates of the #Osirian mysteries, comprised the living, #terrestrial body of the #archetypal, celestial #Osiris. Contemporary Djedi are self-selecting re-generators of #cosmos. They are those who, regardless of #race or #creed, are #awakening to #mission in #service to the #planet and the epochal imperatives of stability, continuity and #regeneration. The Djedi sense, and know Osiris’s arising as their own. As Osiris awakens from the sleep of the #aeon, the Djedi also “rise to the occasion,” moving into resonant relationship as the re-constellated members of the collective Osiris. Therefore, as the mighty bones creek and the ancient One stirs, let the Djedi return. This is the #historical moment of our #awakening and our call. So #prepare for the #ReturnOfTheJedi. And you thought it was just a movie…. #4biddenknowledge #ExpectUs we have been here for a very long time

The Ultimate Metaphysical Secret, if we dare to state it so simply, is that there are no Boundaries in the Universe. Boundaries are Illusions, Products not of Reality but of the way we Map and Edit Reality. And while it is fine to Map out the Territory, it is Fatal to Confuse the two.” - Ken Wilber
