Meditation: Stimulate The Third Eye

Meditation To Stimulate The Third Eye:
Close the eyes.
The elbows are bent. The forearms are parallel with the floor. Both palms face down to the ground.
The hands are out in front of the chest. The right palm sits on top of the left hand.
Recite out loud, 3 times per breath (then inhale, recite 3 times per breath, continue):
“Aad Sach Jugaad Sach Haibhee Sach Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach”
Time: 11 minutes
To conclude: Inhale deeply, hold the breath, squeeze the spine, squeeze every muscle, exhale — 3x
Relax.

Tao Te Ching – Verse 19

Throw away holiness and wisdom,
and people will be a hundred times happier.
Throw away morality and justice,
and people will do the right thing.
Throw away industry and profit,
and there won’t be any thieves.

If these three aren’t enough,
just stay at the center of the circle
and let all things take their course.
-+-+-+-

End sagacity; abandon knowledge
The people benefit a hundred times

End benevolence; abandon righteousness
The people return to piety and charity

End cunning; discard profit
Bandits and thieves no longer exist

These three things are superficial and insufficient
Thus this teaching has its place:
Show plainness; hold simplicity
Reduce selfishness; decrease desires

(translation by Derek Lin, 2006)

Pretense is folly.
If they must, ask them to study.
Ask them to remember the beginning.
Exhausted, they may find the peace of Zero.

Today: “Living in a time of opposition” – I Ching

Living in a time of opposition, where everything seems to conspire against you, stay with your colleagues to see it through.  It is important not to give up, as the rise of the forces of evil would find no resistance to their nefarious agenda.  That is exactly what contributed to this situation.
