"Invite the pain in and bring it to circle so that we can be a part of that transformation."
- Rev. Claudia Roblee
Finally I have emerged from the deep silence that was left in the interim of time since my last blog post in 2009. I have been carefully reflecting upon the life lessons of the winter season experienced thus far internally and externally. I kept finding myself wanting to share pieces of my journey to peace yet having trouble finding the motivation and words that I deemed worthy enough to broadcast over the internet. My friend Djaloki spoke of a time that there would be a shift in collective consciousness of humanity and that time he has spoken of is now. Djaloki is a co-founder of Wisdom Circle Ministries along with Rev. Claudia Roblee. He is also a resident of Haiti and sent the following message that was shared with the prayer circle on Tuesday that shook me out of my apathy. Below are his words that I felt moved to share with you.
Wisdom from Djaloki's heart
"What we see and what we hear from mainstream media is shaped by all kinds of overt and covert agendas. Even what looks obvious and what seems sensible is often designed to manipulate our consciousness at various levels. I invite you to question everything you are told, even what you are led to think apparently by yourself, and this includes this very message. The urgent and acute need for help in Ayiti and the global response of solidarity it is producing are not exempt from manipulation and deception.
This is a golden opportunity to sharpen our heart intelligence and to tap into the global readiness for genuine respect, dignity, sustainability, interconnectedness, relationships and love, which the Ayitian people are currently expressing on behalf of humanity as a whole. We will access this collective knowing from the depths of our individual heart-mind-spirit (not from mainstream media) by nurturing our heart powered processes of thought, speech and action through prayer, meditation, self investigation and healing, humility, support and service to others, pure intention and recognizing our genuine intuition from our mental addictive habits.
When we learn to listen to our global heart through the vibrations of our "individual" heart, we evolve to a higher individual and collective frequency and consciousness. Then we understand the utmost sacredness of the hundreds of thousands of deaths and the extreme pain and suffering of millions through sudden massive tragedies such as the recent one in Ayiti, or others that will come, until we absorb the lessons and the wisdom they are teaching us." - Rev. Djaloki
I invite you to celebrate Black History Month with hip hop namaste as together we surf the collective wave of transformation. And if you feel moved please do participate in the prayer circle that prompted this debut 2010 blog post from hip hop namaste. For the next two weeks to a month we will be gathering together each night via Skype to engage in the dance of the heart. Please join us in this paradigm shift of the collective power of the heart. To gain a more intimate view into the after math of the earthquake in Ayaiti (Haiti) please check out wisdom circle ministries web blog for up to date information from Djaloki who is a survivor of the earthquake and a dear friend.
