Blog newbie CARL SMUDA has recently shared some lusciously thoughtful comments over at My Milestone with The New Strong. A Guest Post by BERNADETTE. In a pretty general way, I have thanked him in some comments there. But some of what he wrote deserves a more detailed response, because he has probably spoken for many.
To respond properly, I’ll quote some of Carl’s sentences below, not necessarily in the order originally presented but always italicized and otherwise not altered [except for one minor grammatical correction from this writer].
So here goes.
Some of You Really Get Why I Wrote “THE NEW STRONG”
Thank you. 🙂
Yesterday CARL wrote, “Ive been totally thankful to the great invisible for the incredible perfect timing of this book in my Life. Its a bell that no one [can unring] in my life.”You and me both, CARL.
The Great Invisible — what a sweetly comfortable and affectionate term for God!
For me, too, discoveries in “THE NEW STRONG” have chimed in a distinctive way, bringing alignment and even putting my life back in tune.
Without knowledge like this, seems to me, life has been discordant and confused in many ways ever since the start of The Age of Awakening on December 21, 2012.
Yet once a person gets the memo (okay, a memo that is more than 200 pages long, in my particular version of it), there’s a combo of bell chiming + a calming wake up feeling all over over + plus some headslapper moments of “Duh! Of course. I knew that in bits pieces but it was all compartmentalized and now it fits together much better.”
About the 20 Minutes Part
Given that the book aims to help people adapt well to this Age of Awakening, included is a Program for Easy Vibrational Balance. This includes a commitment to 20 daily minutes of Technique Time, Tops.
- Yes, you can read some things about this in “The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Gifts.”
- And you can read bits and pieces here at this blog, such as this Hot Topics Post about Technique Time.
- But “THE NEW STRONG” explains it more systematically, and places it in contexts like support of nature and “Rules & Tools for Thriving in the Age of Awakening.”
Quite a Change to Old Consciousness Lifestyle and Daily Routine!
New Strong is extremely important to me. Your teachings on spiritual addiction have set me free.
20 minutes tops Ive been working on. I want and need that balance but just 20?
My TM program comes and goes and has been my bedrock; but you set me free of 20+ years of spiritual addiction.
Don’t I know about that kind of challenge! So here are my thoughts as a former TM teacher and “Governor of the Age of Enlightenment” — someone whose life used to revolve around meditating and going on courses with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and running one TM center or another… for decades.
Ooh, Controversy Alert!
The TM Program Is Now the Too Much Program
“20 minutes in the a.m. and p.m.”
That’s the minimum commitment for a meditator doing Transcendental Meditation…
and also typical of the way-more-than-20/day time commitment for spiritual seekers involved in other beautiful practices for spiritual development.
What’s wrong with that? Now?
20 minutes twice a day adds up to… more than 20 minutes total.
However often (and reluctantly) one might do the math.
As Maharishi used to say, “Here’s the thing.”
Did these meditation programs originate in The Age of Awakening?
During those years, a psychic barrier or veil was still in place. Meditators needed plenty of time to push through that veil (however effective the practice, however un-pushy the pushing).
CARL and you and I are living NOW. All you Blog-Buddies, here’s the most basic single fact about what changed in The Age of Awakening:
Life on earth works differently vibrationally.
It just does.
No blame needed. Nor blinders. Let’s adapt already.
How can you do better than using beautiful spiritual practices, like Transcendental Meditation, for more than 20 minutes total each day?
Cut your entire Program time down to no more than 20 minutes total per day.
You’ll get better results.
If Maharishi were living now, in The Age of Awakening, he might call this a great example of, “Do less, accomplish more.”
Energetic Literacy Shows the Difference
Lest there be any doubt in your mind about all this, you might wish to schedule a session with me of Aura Reading Research.
How can I use energetic literacy skills to help you to understand what’s what, and in a very personal way?
Using one of those 15 Stages of Energetic Literacy, I can research for you different “energetic holograms” — loaded with details about what was going on with your chakra databanks like these:
Root Chakra Databank for Connection to Objective (Human-Level) Reality
Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Solving (Human-Level) Problems
Throat Chakra Databank for Communicating to Gain (Human-Level) Respect
Heart Chakra Databank for (Healthy, Human-Level) Emotional Self-Awareness
Third Eye Chakra Databank for (Human-Level) Spiritual Integration
How Did TM or Other Spiritual Practices Affect These Parts of Your Aura
At Different Times in Your Life?
Here are examples of research we could do, no photo needed, while in session on phone or webcam or in person:
- What were these chakra databanks like 30 years ago, when you were a regular meditator or often went on TM courses.
- How about 20 years ago?
- How about December 20, 2012?
- How about December 22, 2012?
- How about now, when you’ve been doing just 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops?
You get the idea. And speak of ideas, here’s a very reassuring idea to remember, even if you hate the very notion of change to your spiritual routine:
You’re Living in an Amazing Era for Rapid Spiritual Evolution
CARL and other Blog-Buddies who are exploring this Program for Easy Vibrational Balance, good for you!
Applauding your courage!
I think you’ll find that losing spiritual addiction is just the teensy beginning of all that you stand to gain.
