What was your most profound realization? Or, what was the most moving thing you’ve ever read?

Pardon the Doom Break for a little bit of divergence into uncharted esoterica.

I’ll start:

My most profound realization was how important and life-changing it is to have proper love for oneself. To ascribe proper worth and value to oneself. It’s liberating. More important still is unconditional love for and loyalty to one’s children, family and bloodline. We are the sole curators of our ancestors’ blood, their epigenetic memories, and the reward for thousands of years of their painful struggle to survive. To experience love for a family of my own was the “missing piece” to my soul and I don’t believe a person can feel complete without serving in that natural role as a Father or parent.

The most truly moving thing that I’ve ever read were the words of Christ, paraphrased:

“For whosoever seeks to save his own soul will lose it; But the man who loses his soul for the sake of good will find it again.”

Also the passage recording Solomon’s commentary on love, as contained in my sigline.

Someone once said to me, "You are a spiritual being engaged in a human experience. This is a blink of time in your infinite existence. If you feel like you don't belong here, it's because you don't."

That conversation changed my life and helped me embrace who I am.

As far as the most profound thing I've ever read, "Autobiography of a Yogi" was an incredible journey and I've given dozens of copies of it away over the years. I make sure I always have a couple of extras on my bookshelves.

Excellent post, Sis. What you said is an incredibly profound concept and it makes me think about how short our lives are in the grand context of it all.

I looked up the book you mentioned, it sounds awesome and I was able to find a PDF. I’m going to start digging into it tonight and see what I can learn :)

God Bless. And Merry Christmas to you guys!

Yay! I'm so glad you found the PDF version.

"Autobiography of a Yogi" sort of finds you, kind of a "meant to be" thing. There's something for everybody within its text.

Self-realization and positive affirmations are so important in this life. I had been spiritually "stuck" in my late 20s and a Hindu priest gave me my first copy. My life has never been the same.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Seraphim! God bless!

Re: What was your most profound realization? Or, what was the most moving thing you’ve ever read?
Many years ago, I was in Chester Cathederal in the UK. They were having an exhibition of various religions.

In one of the chapels, they had stuff on Hinduism and Yoga.

Now I've always had a strong tendency towards the spiritual and was at the time unsure how I should best explore and express this in my own life.

This thought was on my mind as I entered this Chapel, which was/is nside the Cathederal and has no external windows and was pretty dark.

I had just entered and a beam of light from high up suddenly illuminated a Shiva Nataraja bronze which was part of the display. All doubts disappeared in an instant.

Believe this or not, it's up to you.

This is not the only experience like this that I've had.

This is a great thread and should be longer! Your insights are awesome.

Re: What was your most profound realization? Or, what was the most moving thing you’ve ever read?
One night I dreamed that I was a child, afraid of a monster under my bed. God came into the room as a loving parent, with a flashlight, a broom, and a box of supplies. He did not deride my fears or even contradict them. He had me hold the light while he swept out from under the bed until there was nothing underneath. Then he got under the bed with a stack of books, some juice boxes and string cheese and invited me to join him.

We stayed under the bed all afternoon, reading, playing games, and laughing. Then we played a game to see who could get out, over, and back under the bed the fastest. Around and around we went.

Then it was night time and he tucked me into bed. I lay there realizing that now being under the bed seemed cozier and safer than being on top. It made me laugh aloud. He had taught me to go into my fears with the light - with him, and find freedom in knowledge of every unseen corner.

I awoke and wrote the following song.

I AM ONE


I have walked the road of a lonely soul
Searching for a rest
From the hostile fray, trying to be safe
To find a quiet nest
Can compassion flow over wounds grown cold
Is there a way to heal?
Could I just be me — a minute incomplete
And find my real?

2)
By your side I’m brave, with an ounce of faith
We crawled beneath the bed
Faced down my fear, gripped the Devil’s beard
And cut off his head.
Mapped the vast unknown, of an infant soul,
Here I - I have begun
If you see a piece while I’m finding me
Cry, I am one!


3)
All the things I learned, kept me from the burn
Of darkest memories
And creation’s spark was my rescue ark
In the flood of me
Then when love arrived, I didn’t want to hide,
I wanted - wanted in.
When you kiss my scars, I feel that they are
Embedded gems.

Chorus:

I am one
I am just begun
I am kiln-fired hope
I am free to go
I am counted tears
I am conquered fear
I am just begun
I am one.
