"인류의 눈물로 이루어진 거대한 슬픔의 바다인 대양의 쓰라린 물결들." " JOY UNTO YE, O MEN OF MYALBA, Myalba is our earth -- pertinently called "Hell," and the greatest of all Hells, by the esoteric school. The esoteric doctrine knows of no hell or place of punishment other than on a man-bearing planet or earth. Avitchi is a state and not a locality. "
나의 어릴적 꿈은 별 꼴, 별 일을 다 겪어도 동요하지 않는 마음을 갖는것이 나의 꿈이였다. 뺨맞아도 행복한 마음을 갖고, 배신당해도 기쁜 마음을 갖고, 짓밟혀도 웃을수 있는 마음을 갖는거.단단한 마음.ㅋㅋㅋ남편의 어릴적 꿈은 대통령이였다는데 나의 꿈은 어릴적부터 이상했다.
마음이 실생활에 끼치는 힘은 대단했다. 착하게 살자고 다짐해도 누군가 옆에서 나를 건들이거나 화나게 만들면 그 다짐은 산산조각 부셔져서 날뛰는 소처럼 흉폭해졌지. 원망하는 마음, 슬픈 마음. 날뛰는 마음.
이 마음이 문제라고 생각했다. 작심 3일의 마음, 마음 다스릴라고 온갖 수행을해도 항상 도로묵이야.
어릴적 나의 꿈은 지금도 현재진행형
Yoga nidra . A state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. It IS the state where we can reprogram deep rooted beliefs that hold us back from realizing our full potential.
This is one of the tools I use in my system to self mastery especially in terms of finding one’s purpose and achieving goals . Not in an ethereal, metaphorical way... in an actual , practical way with tangible and measurable results. And , what could be better than lying down on the floor for 15 minutes and calling it work ?

That which suffers on this side of the river, here in the #WheelOfSamsara , is what suffers...
That which is on the other side of the river is that which does not belong to time... that is that... and you do not know it.
The Being of the Being is beyond the I, in the Garden of Love, in that which does not belong to time...
The Being of the Being is very far from the body, far from the affections and of the Mind...
What one feels in one's heart, the pain which afflicts one at a given moment, has it's root in time.
That which has nothing to do with time is always on the other side of the river.
Real plenitude, authentic happiness, is found on the other side of the river.
Families arise in time. They are lost in time, they are always subjective, unconscious and suffer much.
Groups of human appear and disappear in time; they are corpses that live.
Those shadows of the past are phantoms, who cry, who project themselves towards the future through the alley of the present.
Many conflicts exist among those shadows of time.
What is behind ourselves in the interior of the interior is the Being...
Only the Being of the Being can experience the Truth directly.
The myself is on this side of the river.
The Being is on the other side of the river.
The myself is what is worth nothing. It is perishable.
The Being is the imperishable, that which is always new.
The myself is complicated, unconscious and painful.
The Being is simple, happy, and conscious.
The myself is a knot that we have to untie.
The Being is perfect plenitude.
The diverse circumstances of life do not exist beyond time.
To feel what one should feel, what nobody understands what is unknown by he who feels what is not worth feeling, is in reality Being awake.
Behind the sentiment that one considers to be so real (which is not real) there is another sentiment that people do not understand.
The authentic happiness of the Being horrifies the ego...
That which is felt in the Being causes pain to the ego.
The Being and the ego are incompatible. They are like water and oil; they can never mix. - #SamaelAunWeor .
En el idioma tibetano el término dakini es Khandroma (mkha’-‘gro-ma) que significa “aquella que atraviesa el cielo” o “la que se mueve en el espacio”; también se refiere como "bailarina del cielo" o "caminante del cielo". Iconográficamente, sus cuerpos son representados con posturas sinuosas y danzantes. Es de notar que aunque las dakinis son representadas siempre como desnudas y hermosas, no son vistas principalmente como símbolos sexuales, sino como símbolos de la naturaleza desnuda de la mente, libre de todos los oscurecimientos. Los movimientos de su danza representan los movimientos y pensamientos de la conciencia en el flujo mental y el #dharmakaya como el florecimiento espontáneo de la Mente del Buda, o rigpa.
“The problem is that our essential nature, the innate state of dharmakaya is simply so close to ourselves we can’t see it. It’s too easy, so that it’s hard to trust. It’s so familiar to ourselves that it seems foreign. When something is too familiar it’s like a person who we are really close to – we don’t have much respect or deep appreciation for him or her. But if someone new comes in, we will stand up and join our palms together in respect. That’s why it’s said, “The one with whom you are too familiar, too well acquainted, you disrespect.” That which is closest is one’s own buddha-nature, but we lack respect for it in the sense of truly appreciating it. Not appreciating it, we ignore it and foolishly look elsewhere. Therefore, it is said that it is truly foolish to hope for the state of enlightenment to come from some other place.”
Love yourself enough to stand the love of another . So often we get caught up in the pull of unrequited love ... ‘I only love those that don’t want me ‘ it’s less mysterious force and more pathology ... the pathology of ceasing to love if our love is returned , because if you did love me as I am , then what is wrong with you ? And if there’s something wrong with you, you are no longer perfect and you’ve destroyed my hope and desire of perfection for you.
The cure ? Love yourself enough so that when the other loves you back , your natural response is ease , happiness , and a deep knowledge that now true love can begin .
I do not pretend that loving oneself is easy , it’s a continuous journey with its own ups and downs , betrayals , Intrigues, dramas and long silences ... but worth the trip if one is ever wanting to be with another .
My essential list for loving me:
A radical acceptance of my flaws
Yoga as often as possible
Meditation as often as possible
And making an effort to keep my relationships with friends and family strong and connected
And always Reading - my greatest ally
#Vajrasattva , nuestra #pureza#esencial .
El #Buda más allá del #espacio y el #tiempo
A Vajrasatva se le denomina #Adi -buda. Adi significa principio o primordial, no como el Buda que ha existido desde el principio del tiempo, sino como el Buda que existe totalmente más allá del espacio y el tiempo. Vajrasattva representa al #Dharmakaya , la verdadera naturaleza de la #Budeidad , Su naturaleza auténtica se halla más allá de los más lejanos confines de lo expresable. Es un #símbolo de lo que no se puede simbolizar.
La pureza esencial “simbolizada”
Vajrasatva es un Buda que aparece con forma de #bodhisatva . Es de color #blanco . Esto significa pureza y purificación, la cual, aquí, consiste en la profunda percepción de que, en esencia, nunca nadie ni nosotros hemos sido impuros. Somos completamente puros desde un principio sin inicio, puros por nuestra misma #naturaleza , esencialmente, en las profundidades de nuestro ser. Somos puros de todo condicionamiento. Incluso, somos puros de la mera distinción entre lo condicionado y lo incondicionado. Nuestra verdadera naturaleza es la no-naturaleza y somos, en la mismísima esencia, completa y perfectamente #inmaculados . Para cualquiera que haya crecido en una cultura tan afectada por la #culpa como es la nuestra, esto puede ser un gran alivio. Cuando reconocemos en Vajrasattva nuestra naturaleza, esencial, pura, se destruye por entero cualquier culpa irracional.
En particular, la visualización de Vajrasatva ocurre en las series tradicionales de los cuatro yogas básicos, en los que uno lo visualiza y recita su mantra 100 mil veces como apoyo para la completa purificación del cuerpo, el habla y la mente.
La visualización de Vajrasatva
Cielo azul de la vacuidad
Para empezar, todo lo que nos rodea se disuelve en un vasto cielo azul que se extiende en todas direcciones. Toda #esperanza y temor, toda ronda de #pensamientos , se desvanece en el cielo y todo está sereno.
#Dharmakaya : é a manifestação da verdade em forma absoluta, para além da necessidade de discriminação em conceitos. Representa a verdade que está além da forma e da idéia. Corresponde à mente de #Buda .Ph: @lcollares Make: @dgmakeTattoo
When I lose faith I remember the night at the emergency vet when I was there with my cat who’d gotten attacked by a squirrel. It was after 2 in the morning and I was waiting, distraught, and this guy came in with his kitten. I don’t know what had happened but he was just sobbing as he handed it over, his eyes were all swollen and his tears were just streaming and his heart was so open, and I felt our connection. When I lose faith I remember the time when i was in London all by myself. Confused on the tube, I saw it was my stop and rushed off the train then realized immediately I’d forgotten my wallet, and it had everything in it including my passport, and when I turned around the punk looking kid, who had been sitting right next to me, picked up my stuff and threw it right to me, right into my hands as the train doors were closing. When I lose faith I think of the friends who came to my house, showed up unannounced, when my babies were born and I was deathly sick with a mysterious illness, and they calmly spoke and patted my back and folded my laundry while I cried on the couch. When I lose faith I think of all the people I know who’d drop it all in a heartbeat to help a someone in trouble, someone they don’t even know. This is what’s happened, I realize as I write this, there’s a cultural glitch that makes us forget this, like the wholeness of us is completely off kilter, we’re moving so fast like cancerous cells, a fast growing tumor that’s taken over and turned us against our very own nature our very own selves. Because under the thoughts that we think are real, there’s an electrical charge that runs through us all, from a man to his kitten to my wallet in England to my new born children to my friends who love me folding my laundry to their touch on my back to the words that I write, we are each other, we’re of one body, we share a life.
Backlit Buddhadharma 2 *
"When we deal with the dakini as a religious symbol, her gender becomes more complex and multivalent. On an ultimate level, the dakini is beyond gender altogether. As Janice Willis [has written], ''she' is not 'female.' Though the dakini assuredly appears most often in female form (whether as a female deity, or female human being), this is but one of the myriad of ways Absolute Insight chooses to make manifest its facticity.' '
'She' is in essence a vast and limitless expanse of emptiness, the lack of inherent existence of all phenomena expressed symbolically as space, that which cannot be symbolized. But in the true Tibetan Vajrayana sense, 'she' manifests in a female-gendered form on various levels. She also manifests in meditation phenomena that have no gendered form, such as in deity yoga, in the subtle-body experience of vital breath in the energetic channels, and in the experience of transmission from a tantric guru.
The dakini is, from this perspective, more than a singular symbol and more than a feminine deity. She represents a kind of 'feminine principle,' a domain of spiritual experience beyond conventional, social, or psychological meanings of gender. This domain of the feminine principle permeates many levels of Tibetan Buddhist practice and understanding, each integrated in some way with the others. While the feminine principle takes a feminine form, ultimately there is nothing feminine about it. Additionally, because the term refers to emptiness, the absence of inherent existence of any kind, either ordinary or divine, the word 'principle' does not really apply either."

We look to the ancient texts like the yoga sutras or the Bhagavad Gita or the Heart Sutra, to Name just three , for insights on how to be happier , gain more personal freedom , learn about our dharma and compassion etc , but if you’ve ever tried looking in any of these to help guide you in modern day romantic relationships , you’ll probably come up short . When it comes to dating and successful romantic relationships, I prefer to listen to the wisdom of the modern day mystics , thinkers and social activists.
In my talk on Romantic relationships inspired by thinkers like @alaindebotton , @brenebrown and @estherperelofficial and of course always a touch of my greatest inspiration to date - yoga .... you’ll find my take on the topic . You can find this talk (audio) on my YouTube channel - Cherrylduncan
I listen to a podcast called How I built this – a show that features innovators, entrepreneurs, idealists and the stories behind the movements they built.
Just this morning I was listening to the story of John Zimmer and how he built Lyft. A company that helped make ride-hailing a fixture of American urban living.
In response to a question on why he is so competitive, he says, ‘We’re out to win, but we’re out to win for the values we represent’.
And I was like YES!
I’m all about values. Defining your own, really though, thinking about them, throwing out ones that don’t work, taking on new ones, throwing them out again, until you have a set you can honestly, hand on heart (even when no one’s looking) live by.
That’s what I did when I created dharmaKaya®..., Read why exactly ... ok my blog where you’ll find it on www.cherrylduncan.com

Is it a religion or a philosophy? Is it the same thing as mindfulness? How does karma work? Does meditation really relieve stress? Why?
This zippy afternoon talk will answer (many of) your questions about the historic Buddha, the basic Buddhist teachings, and the scientific basis of many of the practices. It will end with some practical applications for daily life. 【佛教初探】

When you see the 4th #dharmakaya anchor graffitied in the street and you’re like yes !
Here’s why I include the principle ‘of life as paradox’ in the dharmaKaya system to self mastery and yoga .
This anchor is about acknowledging that we are not just one thing at one time. It’s about starting to see the world in it’s many wonderful and colourful contradictions, and that starts with ourselves. Accepting that we can be many things at the same time. Understanding that nothing is wholly bad or wholly good. Appreciating the fluctuating nature of good things gone bad and bad things turning good.
If you’re ever felt trapped in a box someone else or even you have put yourself in , then the concept of ‘nature as paradox’ can liberate you ! If you understand how ... If you’re interested in hearing how I’ve taken inspiration from teachings of yoga, Buddhism, mysticism and Psychology and made them more modern and relevant, then watch this space for public talks I’ll be giving in both Munich and Zurich ...
If you want to be added to the list of invites dm me your email address (I promise to not use your data for any sinister purpose ;) Love

Your mind has always been your own teacher , but still you look elsewhere. Who is the knower? Who is the doer? Faith is half the battle. If I said Mind that may mean one thing. If I say Heart that may mean something else. If I used Sanskrit and used the words Dharmakaya you have no idea what I'm talking about. If I used Tibetan and used the word Rigpa, I only confuse you. So the skillfull means in this case is to throw all language aside. Be still and know, that the teacher is already present. In stillness, in ease, or spontaneity. Choose a door and enter. But have faith, and have confidence . Directly experience for yourself.
The sea is calling !
I have a very special and inexplicable connection to Greece. It’s like arriving in a place where I feel that somehow the laws of time and circumstance don’t exist and everything stops ... stops in a good way . A way that allows for inspiration and play .
And that’s exactly the atmosphere I create on my retreats to Greece.
Yes meditation , yes yoga , but also a lot of fun, good food (and wine if you so wish ), good people and lasting memories and friendships .
Come be inspired
Come restore and rejuvenate
we are clouds. density is an illusion. pure white light broken into the 5 colors. true mind is only the realm of truth covered over by delusion. see your nature. realize what you are, remember who you are, and end dissatisfaction permanently. #buddhamindbuddhabody#dharmakaya#youarelife
"When you go back to your homeland, instead of getting too involved with your uncles and aunties and so on, try to look at your own true, authentic condition, the Dharmakaya, as your home. When you want to indulge in delicious meals, try to think about living on your own meditation. When you want to wear warm clothing, think that the practice of inner heat yoga is your clothing." - Milarepa
