As hu(e)-man waveform beings, we are the energetic embodiment, of variable densities and energy -and of our astrology (whether Vedic or Western, both are accurate – just from different perspectives – the earth’s vs sun’s vs galactic view of our energies as we took the first breath).
How we deal with our co-existence in the world and it’s ongoing astrology as we interact with it- and still love and do our dharma, is our task for each lifetime.
Qualities of thriving might look like having bright eyes, relaxed shoulders and upright gait- such as one standing in version of Tadasana. To be grounded, centered, and lifted – all at one time, heart and hands engaged in gently coordinated gesticulations with breath.
The gait would be light and fluid and with speech like rose petals -punctuated with gentle amusement (like the Dalai Lama).
(A-muse-ment = without(“a-“) thinking (-ment) about muse. We don’t need to be entertained -because we are already. By Her, if you know what I mean!- I’m adding that part just now; if you’ve been reading my posts you’ll get it.)
Ay ur veda is a useful guide and blueprint to train one’s inner messiah. (Ay syllable is from Ayin – Phoenician for a ring (of unity); in Hebrew Ay(in) means “eye”. The organ we see and judge with.)
Following Ay ur veda, the way of training one’s eyes, helps reduce our karma. (Dr. Ama to the rescue with her sweets, hugs, and alcohol!). Karma is the sticky gooey stuff, starts out like caramel – but with excess passion – heat, becomes dark and brittle- then karma, what is supposed to feed, weighs down our heart’s flame – and the rest of us even lower.
(I’ve written an essay about Ayurveda here https://drjenwyman-clemons.com/2020/11/23/what-is-ayurveda-part-one/).
According to principles of simple conditioning, what we speak to- we focus on. So to focus on any problem or “ama” per se – only worsens our condition(s).
AMA – a mystical perspective (Ayurveda part 3)
Each doctor’s appointment is surrogate for thoughtful consideration by impartial audience. We already have all the judgements of family when we go to visit. It is for the very important doctor to offer a ‘next’ suggestion (as we climb our golden ladders, we need to free ourselves of excess karma and caramel)- this takes lifetimes – not just a quick doctor’s visit- and yet, the doctor is imperative (as well your teachers, and ‘Holy’ ones- however you consider them).
How do we get this way? To feel light and free- by following the basic precepts of Ayurveda – use it like a green ribbon.
I’m mentioning all this because you seemed open to ideas. Blessings!
