Atma Namaste Everyone! 
 
Today’s Quote: “Do not use honesty to hurt other people! Do not use honesty as an excuse to be verbally sadistic.” -GMCKS
Wife: I just bought this new dress, how do I look?
Husband: Fat
Wife: WHAT! (verge of tears)
Husband: What? I’m just being honest…
or
Co-worker: Hey Jamie, I just found out something you’re never going to believe.
Jamie: What?
Co-worker: That you were hired not because of your ability, but because of affirmative action.
Jamie: I can’t believe you just told me that (hurt and furious)
Co-worker: I’d thought you’d want to know, I’m just being honest…
or
Family Member: Grandma, I’m sorry to tell you your grandson, Will, just died.
Grandma: Oh no! Really…umm, what did he die of?
Family Member: He died of AIDS.
Grandma: I didn’t know Will was gay (saddened Will never shared this)
Family Member: I thought you’d like to know, I’m just being honest.
In all of the above examples, technically, each person was telling the truth but for what reason? And at what cost to the person receiving the truth?
These are examples of people being verbally sadistic or causing mental and emotional harm to others through their words. Each person finished with saying, “I’m just being honest….” as a justification to hurt the other person.
Whether the hurtful words were caused on purpose or accidental doesn’t matter…suffering was created. A wife left feeling unwanted and out of shape, a co-worker feeling minimized and under appreciated and a grandma saddened and disappointed to learn about her deceased grandson not opening up to her about him being gay.
“I’m just being honest…” is not a hall pass to be cruel, harsh or severe with another person. When there’s a question between choosing honesty or loving kindness, loving kindness should prevail.
How could these people have practiced loving kindness and non-injury over honesty and non-lying?
Husband: The dress isn’t flattering to your figure, can I help you pick a better one out? 
 
Co-worker: (says nothing at all) 
 
Family Member: Did you hear about your grandson Will? He just passed away a few hours ago from a severe pneumonia. I’m very sorry for your loss. (which is still practicing honesty)
When one has a very sharp mind yet is impatient and angry…he can cut someone to ribbons with his words. If someone is injured physically, the injury will usually heal in a couple weeks. If someone is injured verbally, it can take YEARS to heal, if at all.
I still remember things my father said to be that was I was a young, impressionable boy. One of the most memorable lines was during a time I was teasing my him in the living room about how he wasn’t such a good wrestler and he said, “I’d drop you like a bad habit.”
Now keep in mind, I understood then, as I do now, that he was ENTIRELY kidding. he even had a big smile on his face when he said it. My father has always shown me love and affection with kind, supportive words. In fact, that comment is really one of the only ‘bad’ things I can remember him ever saying but it STILL negatively impacted my self talk and self image.
The bigger one’s chakras become, the more one MUST watch the words he uses in their day to day interactions with others.
Master Co explained, “For those of you who have been practicing Arhatic Yoga regularly, have you noticed things you once said to friends or family will little response are now getting much greater responses? Even though, its the same words or phrases you’ve always used. Its because your energy is much stronger and HITS with a lot of power, positive words AND negative words alike.”
I realized its much more difficult to tease or critique friends and family because now what I say is really ‘taken to heart.’  I simply thought I was giving productive, clear headed feedback when it fact, my words were being perceived as a verbal assault.
So now, I usually just shut my fat mouth and remain silent…one of the greatest of all spiritual practices.
Use your throat chakra and words to inspire, uplift, educate and heal others…not to belittle, put them in their place, criticize, condemn, or judge. What would be the point anyways? Who cares if your right? If the other person is ‘turned off’ by your approach, she is not going to take your feedback anyways.
I wish I had the time to  share the DOZENS of stories in my younger years of trying to convince, conjole, criticize, and condemn others because I wanted to genuinely help them but I NEEDED them to KNOW I WAS RIGHT.
Guess what? Most of them did the OPPOSITE of my recommendations as a nice way of saying, “Mind your own damn business and stop being an asshole.”
So again…I just shut my fat mouth and wait for people to come for healing or guidance, that way they are open and receptive to honesty. Easy peasey.
Besides, I spent many years alienating people…why would I want to continue that by using harsh words that are HONEST but not loving? Loving words are healing, nurturing, nourishing and permeating.

Atma Namaste Everyone! 
 
Today’s Quote: “Compassion means you do something to alleviate the suffering of another.” -GMCKS 
Its a simple quote right? Even pretty obvious yes? As Master Co would say, “But the question is, ‘Are you doing it?'”
I was talking with a woman the other day about how her brother committed suicide a year ago and while she was not very close to him (even thinking he was an asshole at times), she was having a hard time healing from his suicide. She wears the pain on her sleeves.
And its totally understandable to feel pain and suffering after losing a family member, whether one was close or not.
I went on to share with her the teachings of Grandmaster Choa and the path of compassion.
When we harbor anger, frustration, bitterness and resentment towards a person we perceive has screwed us over in life, it gets stuck in the energy body…really, really stuck. So stuck we may even take those pains into the next life.
We go through three stages on the path of compassion.
The first step is we begin to forgiveness because we realize those negative thoughts and feelings are beginning to negatively affect our lives. So we start saying things like, “Hmm, well this person is human and we all make mistakes. He’s not perfect and neither am I. I bet she didn’t even realize what she was doing.”
Then some of that heavy, dense, anger energy begins to move up from the meng mein chakra which is located into the lower back into the back heart chakra located inbetween the shoulder blades.
The energy becomes refined turning into gratitude…the second stage.
Yes, gratitude for the other person that has been a thorn in your side. You begin to perceive the situation better and start thinking, “Hmm, well this person is definitely teaching me something about myself. She’s helping me to learn the lesson of patience, understanding, tolerance…and for that I AM grateful.”
Then some of that energy moves from the back heart chakra upwards into the crown chakra.
The energy is further refined into COMPASSION…the third stage.
This is the highest stage of forgiveness because one becomes awakened to a deeper understanding of the Law of Karma and the Principle of Oneness.
Try to follow me on this next part because its powerful and profound…
The Law of Karma states that whatever we sow, we reap and the Principle of Oneness states, we are all spiritually One…so what you do to another, you do to yourself and what you do to yourself, you do to all.
Going back to the example of the person who did you wrong, once you have compassion for this person, you realize she is actually causing the suffering to herself in the future by the negative seeds she planted with you. And whatever you plant, comes back many many times.
You steal a $1…$100 will be stolen from them.
You sexually abuse one…you will be sexually abused by many
You deceive once… will you be deceived many times.
Conversely…
You give a $1…$100 will be given back to you
You smile at one….many will smile back
You heal one…you will be healed by many
It is the LAW, its not there to punish you anymore than the law of gravity. Its simply what is.
And here’s the REAL KICKER, the person in your life who caused you suffering, pain, abuse and anguish CHOSE to be a channel for your negative karma! Your Higher Soul and the other person’s Higher Soul made an agreement…she agreed to be channel for your negative karma (because you planted negative seeds previously) to help you learn your lesson to grow, evolve and become a better person.
Wow wow WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW
That is why having compassion for another person is so vital because on the highest level, you realize he will eventually suffer the same or WORSE punishment you did. By practicing compassion to others, especially the ones who torment you, you alleviate their pain and yours.
Compassion can be done through blessings, healing, teaching, service, tithing, kind words of encouragement and others.
Compassion is beautiful and a lifelong practice.
The rewards for being compassionate to ALL SENTIENT BEINGS are priceless and without bounds. I wish your life to filled with opportunities to practice compassion on yourself, friends, family, strangers, and the people who MOST upset you. It’s simply the right thing to do.

Atma Namaste Everyone! 
 
Today’s Quote: “If you want to pay off your negative karma fast, do service and tithing.” -GMCKS 
We hear this term ‘karma’ thrown around a lot in yoga schools, Buddhist centers, New Age bookstores and spiritual youtube channels (by guys like me), but what is karma actually?

kar·ma
ˈkärmə/
noun

(in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

 
What is actually deciding our fate in future existences?
Simple…
Our thoughts, words and actions generate karma that is either positive (leads to liberation) or negative (leads to suffering).
Positive thoughts, words and actions generate positive karma that we can use to either neutralize past negative seeds we planted or to ensure greater success in the future.
Negative thoughts, words and actions generate negative karma that we MUST repay in the future through suffering to neutralize.
If you plant corn you get corn, not mangos. If you plant cucumbers, you get cucumbers, not kale. If you plant pot, you get pot and arrested if not done in Colorado.
WHATEVER you want in life, plant it…and we are constantly planting seeds with our thoughts and emotions. Our words and actions are the fruits of those seeds.
To my understanding, the two laws that supersede the Law of Karma are the Law of Mercy and Law of Forgiveness.

This is where SERVICE and TITHING come in. Whether you realize it or not, when you do service and tithing, you are activating the Law of Mercy and Law of Forgiveness.
Think about it…if you help another person who is down and out, you are entitled to be helped when you are down and out. The Law kicks in.
If you spend your time and energy assisting your aging parents, you are entitled to receive help in your old age. The Law kicks in.
If you provide deep spiritual truths to others which alleviates their suffering and brings them guidance, you are entitled to receive insight and guidance in the times you are suffering. The Law kicks in.
Whether you like it or not, whom is giving more to society in the form of service and tithing…the successful CEO  or the homeless man?
Its not a question of their self worth as Souls, its simply whose planting more seeds and generating greater positive karma? BTW, the CEO could be generating huge amounts of negative karma as well through improper business practices. The Law works both ways.
You may have heard of the example of the person freezing his butt off in a log cabin deep in the mountains. He’s so frusturated and angry that its cold…he looks at the fireplace and DEMANDS that it generate heat but refuses to give it any wood. Doesn’t work does it?
Look around you and observe the most successful people you know whether in health, relationships, wealth or spirituality. Are they givers of their time, money, resources, knowledge, affections? I’d say yes.
Now look around and observe the most miserable people you know whether a family member, co-worker, or a stranger on the street. Are they takers, complainers, ungrateful, negative and DEMANDING the world give them ‘heat’ first and then they’ll give the ‘wood.’
Those people will be waiting a very long time for heat.
And Grandmaster Choa said you can pay of negative karma FAST by service and tithing or you can take the very slow path….through suffering.
I have used the Laws of Mercy and Forgiveness to literally transform every area of my life, the lives of my clients and fellow Arhatic Yogis from around the world. This stuff works, I promise you. Actually, this newsletter contains one of the most powerful and simple truths yet most misunderstood and misapplied.
“…It is in the giving, that we receive…” -Saint Francis of Assisi

Denver Twin Hearts Meditation Newsletter #60

By | Twin Hearts Meditation Newsletter, Uncategorized | No Comments
Atma Namaste Everyone! 
 
Today’s Quote: “Generate one good thought a day about a person you don’t like. When you have Love, you see people like children, they cannot help themselves, so you feel more compassion.” -GMCKS 
 
Which challenges you more?
Showing love to your BFF in the whole wide world OR the person who curses your name on a daily basis?
Which develops your spiritual muscles more?
The business partner that you have complete harmony and trust with in all dealings OR the former business partner who emptied the business accounts and fled the country?
Which brings you from ordinary to Sainthood more?
Having a healthy, happy, productive child OR one who suffers from a severe disability that requires constant care and attention 24-hours a day for the next 40 years?
Its easy to love someone, when it is…its easy to say sweet words to someone, when it is…its easy to be generous, when it is…but that is not were your growth, challenges and lessons are to be obtained…
When Grandmaster Choa is saying ‘children’ he means, YOUNG or IMMATURE Souls.
By looking at someone as a child you gain perspective…you realize this person is still ‘growing’ just like a child, maybe not growing in the physical sense but in the emotional, mental and spiritual sense.
Master Co mentioned at the Teacher Training conference that you can determine whether a Soul is OLD or YOUNG by one’s ability to take responsibility for his life.
An OLD, MATURE Soul takes responsibility for his thoughts, emotions, words and actions for himself and others. He has been there and done that and he understands the principle of Oneness and the Law of Karma. He realizes by passing the buck, he is actually hurting himself as well as the others.
A YOUNG, IMMATURE Soul puts the blame on everyone else but himself. He does not take responsibility for his thoughts, emotions or actions. Its the governments’ fault, its his previous relationships’ fault, its his parents’ fault, its his employers’ fault, its God’s fault…this is a disempowered life.
A YOUNG Soul cannot help himself, just as a child cannot help himself by throwing a temper tantrum when he doesn’t get what he wants.
Your homework is to love, bless, teach, heal and be patient with the YOUNG Souls in your life by saying loving, uplifting words of encouragement to this Soul.
Right now, think of a person who PISSES you off…ok…do you have that person in mind?
Good…
Now say a few loving words to them in your mind.
Go ahead….
“You’re really a good person, I know you’re going through tough times now.”
“You’re a really snazzy dresser.”
“You are one of the funniest people I know.”
or whatever…keep going, say a few more loving things…
Ok, now you are done with your assignment for the day, how do you feel?
Compassion is the highest form of forgiveness, it comes from the Crown chakra. Actually, there is no word for forgiveness in Buddhism. But this is a conversation for another day…
Announcements:
1. Today at 4:30pm Mountain Time, my body turns 35 years old! Whoo hoo! I have entered a new seven-year-cycle called Venus. Its the time of romance, leisure and enjoyment. The BEST things in my life have happened during my yearly-Venus-cycle…I had my son Gabriel, I learned Pranic Healing, I bought my first investment property, I met Susannah and I got approved for Teacher Training. So I’m expecting some pretty cool things to happen during the next 7 years of Venus!
2. The next Prosperity Meditation & Healing for Business Owners is half way full. If you’re wanting less money problems and more money abundance then RSVP here. Class is on Thursday June 11th 10:00am to 12:00pm.
3. The next Cancer Full Moon Meditation is Wed July 1st 7:00pm to 8:45pm. I’m really looking forward to this meditation and not really sure why 🙂 . RSVP here.
4. I’m SUPER DUPER excited about the Introduction to Meditation class on Thursday June 25th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

Little did I know, healing others is a HUGE factor that determines how HIGH one can go in meditation. RSVP here.
5. The 7th installment of Master Co’s series, Achieve the Impossible, is ready. In this video he discusses SUCCESS. Amazing. Watch it.
See Ya Sunday!
