What this creed means to me:
The Heavens and The Earth are all created by the great creator and experienced by we who are the co-creators. So we are all connected, we are all one family connected to all things in this existence. We can learn from all things in this earthly experience so we are the children of this great universal existence.
We have all that we need, so we are taken care of by the creator who dwells in all things.
My belief is this when we were created to experience this Earthly existence all that we need to exist was created for us. We were given food, drink, shelter, pleasures and wisdom from the creator.
We were taught by the animals, guided by the stars, provided for in every way imaginable.
We complicated things, when society created societies dream. What I call the illusion of existence.
We were taught to fear, to want more, to label others and label ourselves as superior creators.
We just destroyed simplicity and unconditional love. We became, disconnected from the creator and the higher self, dependent, needy, fearful, jealous and greedy.
Now we want to reconnect but have lost the essence of simplicity, some are lucky enough to find it and those that do live blissful experiences in this existence, those that do not live in pain and confusion, loneliness and anger.
The Home is a place that lives within you called awareness, the more connected and in the moment you are, the more your intuition blooms. You become connected to all things and you feel accepted by all things. So being aware of everything that given to you creates your sense of connectedness. You feel at peace and wanted.
Becoming aware also opens you up to knowing everything, to feeling more alive. Indecision and be unaware breeds the feeling of fear, the fear of the unknown.
“Fear is just an illusion, we do not often venture into unknown territory, and we feel more comfortable in our known situations no matter how painful and un-serving they are.”
Honesty is divine power, if you are honest to yourself and to others in a respectful and humble manor; you increase your own inner power. You are at peace and others want to be around you. You are valued and appreciated. You love yourself more. If you are not honest you become powerless, people feel your dishonesty and do not want to be around you. You harbor the guilt of dishonesty and feel weighed down and uneasy.
Understanding is my means, once we understand and have wisdom, we know what works and what does not, our existence becomes easier. When we look at another through the eyes of understanding and compassion we become connected understanding their path and their life experiences. We become less judgmental.
“We walk on the spokes of their medicine wheel; we walk in their footsteps so we become more tolerating of who they are.”
We learn to love them for who they are.
Character is the magic that we all possess, Character tells us a lot about a person and who they are in this existence. The strong of character are powerful, alive, honest, truthful, and all loving.
Those with less strong characters are deceiving, dead, powerless, and unloving.
Successful experiences build positive character. The more you overcome your limitations the greater you become. The more others want to be around you and love you based on you loving yourself.
The greater your challenges in life the stronger your character becomes, people migrate to those with strong characters because they want to learn from them, they admire them, and they feel the love radiating from them.
Endurance becomes the body. The more you train your body and mind to be stronger the more you are able to handle. Take small steps and then increase your challenges so that you can grow beyond your limitations.
The best athletes have great endurance both in mind and body, the greatest lovers stand the test of time as do many other things that are endurance based.
Train yourself to be more than what you are today. Train yourself to overcome your challenges.
The flash of lighting becomes your eyes.
I have a different outlook; I believe that what the author was saying is that life happens in the blink of an eye so train your-self to see everything in the moment that it happens.
My outlook based on my native and Toltec beliefs is train your ears to see and your eyes to hear.
Be attentive with all your senses and learn to use all your sense so you can experience all that life has to offer.
Sensibility becomes the ears.
In my opinion sensibility is the essence of being in tune fully.
It is defined as the acute perception of responsiveness toward something.
Once two beings become connected in a sentimental moment of emotional perception knowledge is transferred.
Sensibility becomes the key that opens the heart to the emotional state of humanity.
Creating compassion and understanding for the needs of others as well as making us aware of our own needs.
Promptness becomes the limbs. Quick action, or acting in the moment gives us the power to move forward quickly and to react to any challenge we may have to face. Action is the key word here. Once we act we do not have time to over think situations. Quick, decisive action makes things move smoother.
If we live in the world of thoughts and over-thinking we stall and question things, to the point where we become consumed by fear and we do not act.
“The mind is a tool that keeps us in the same place and does not allow us to move beyond our comfort zone. Once we re-train the thoughts and the patterns in our mind, we become more fluid and more open to new experiences.”
“Don’t dwell in thoughts act, even if you do not get the desired results you will build momentum and the desired results will come with action.”
“Unshadowed by thought” becomes my strategy.”
Thoughts can cloud our thinking or our ability to act based on our past experiences.
Successful people hear their mind chatter, acknowledge the thought and still act in the moment.
Their thoughts become clear and decisive, they do not hesitate they think and do.
“An uncluttered mind breeds innovation and creation.”
“A clouded mind holds us exactly where we are, we do not advance, and we live in the world of thoughts without action.”
Seizing the opportunity by forelock becomes the design. If we plan and our plans are not as we wished them to be. WE GIVE UP!!!
In life we are given multitudes of opportunities, the key is to take action and take the opportunity that is present in that moment.
Life is an experience, experience every opportunity presented to you it is the only way to progress and grow.
Take action in that moment and then plan a design works best for you.
One of my past employers taught me a very valuable lesson that relates to this comment.
Ken said “Fire, ready and then aim.” It took me a long time to understand the meaning I was 18 when he shared this wisdom with me. His firm is very successful based on this one believe.
It meant take action and then hone the idea, refine it and make it successful.
The first step is action.
Right action becomes miracles.
Do what is right at all times and you will make a significant difference in your life and the life of others.
The right thing is not a moral code created in societies dream. It is what feels right for you. Others may judge but they are only miserable themselves, jealous and angry because your right is not their right.
We are all different; just do what feel right for you without guilt.
When you do your life and the life of those around you is more pleasant, even miraculous.
Adaptability to all circumstances becomes my principles.
Be flexible in your life experience, be ready to change and evolve with every opportunity. If you are ridged and unopened you will never grow.
Life throws us many challenges by being open and vulnerable to the experience we grow stronger.
When we try to “control” we become frustrated and un-accepting because things are not going the way we wanted them to go.
The saying is “release and surrender”, live in the now and accept the moment, flow as one with the challenges, take the experience and learn from it.
Emptiness and fullness become the tactics.
Be open to the experiences in your life, be like the sponge that is empty and has the ability to soak up all the water.
By being an empty shell we become full with wisdom.
Don’t think that you are all knowing and wiser than anyone else, be like the child that see the world in open eyes and soaks up everything every day.
Release all your UN-serving thoughts and replace them with new positive thoughts.
Become empty and open to all experiences, learn from everyone and everything and fill yourself with positive life experiences.
Use the wisdom of others and hone it to be your own.
Ready wit becomes the talent.
Laugh at life, but enjoy the experience. Take nothing personally or seriously. Life is just a series of experiences and challenges.
We are here to learn how to laugh at ourselves and to laugh at life.
My mind becomes my friend.
This is important.
The mind is the tool that protects us; it stores information in the memory banks based on our past experiences.
The mind creates fear or pleasure, all based on past experiences.
What you know, what you believe in, what your core programming is this is what you become.
Your mind can create great illusions and make your life challenging.
Example: you walk into a mall and an attractive person smile at you innocently.
You smile back and before you know it a simple, nothing smile, is created into a whole life experience. Your mind tells you that this person is in love with you, it creates your wedding day experience with this person and the rest of your life with this person.
“The mind is my best friend; it protects me and encourages me. It makes me become more powerful as my thoughts become more empowering. I listen to my mind when it encourages me and silence my mind when the brain chatter becomes louder that I can handle in the moment. I train my mind to be encouraging and allow it to experience new memories that are pleasant and beneficial to all.”
The mind is a powerful tool:
The mind protects us. It is programmed from past memories. So if we had a good experience or a bad one, these experiences are stored in our “memory banks”.
It allows us to gather wisdom and store it and to recall it whenever we need it.
It is trainable and very responsive to new ideas and concepts.
It is creative.
It can spark inspiration and imagination.
It empowers us and gives us the ability to visualize.
It can take us into alternate existences and travel through universal portals.
It creates experiences.
Non-Beneficial traits of the mind:
Judgmental, we can judge situations and others based on past programming.
(This can be changed with new and positive programing called a different perception or perspective.)
It is somewhat fear based so it will stop us for trying new things or taking chances.
(This trait can be changes by silencing the mind and taking action, walking through our fears and limitations.)
By befriending the mind we create our own greatness, we limit our limiting thoughts and create empowering one.
Making carelessness the enemy:
Not to care in my opinion means that you lack self-esteem and self-love.
When you are carless it means that you do not take action to change, or help in a positive way.
YOU JUST GIVE UP AND GIVE IN.
Better to be alive, Living in action, making changes and growing better that what you are than living a life of “death”.
Death is a state of mind if you do not care about your current situation or about others you are dead.
You may still be breathing, but truly you are dead.
Making benevolence and righteousness you’re armor.
By being generous we receive more than we could ever expect. Charity is a great thing. You can share your time or money and make a positive change in someone’s life as well as your own.
By being righteous we do what is right to us. It doesn’t mean to do what others or society expects of us. It means to live in a way that is morally right to us.
Do what makes you feel good and right and you will always feel good.
Making the immovable mind your castle:
Make your mind powerful and strong, be decide with your thoughts and actions.
Do not hesitate.
Make your mind unchangeable if it feels right to you.
Others are not living your experiences, you are.
LIVE WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU, NOT WHAT IS DEEMED RIGHT IN THE EYES OF OTHERS.
Absence of Mind Becomes you’re sword.
This is simple, quite your mind, live in the moment and let your intuition be your guide.
