Rumi
Quotes on shamanism and quotes on spirituality

Hello everyone,

I hope this little article find you well and joyful.

I love so Rumi’s wonderful spirituality. No doubt his beautiful poetry takes root in a deep practice of meditation. This quotes takes us once again to this place where categories and words no longer make sense, this moment when spiritual practices lead us to a path with heart beyond words. At such level of spirituality, these words from Rumi are totally applicable to shamanism.

There is another quote i love from Rumi which I find is quite complementary to the one above. It says , “I know you’re tired, but come this is the way”.

 Soul has a real langage different than mind and due to our modern world it’s not always easy to make the difference. There was a time in our humanity when our relationship with nature allowed or favored a certainslowness conducive to contemplation or “natural” meditation. We can find a bit of this idea  in the relation between Zen buddhism and gardening or cooking. Traditional farmers (not industrial ones) were also familiar with such natural practices but in the offices and the din of the cities, it become hard get to the point and we need to find, create, and conqueer time frame as well as new spaces and areas to proceed. It’s really important for our balance and health.

Since the modern world has raised its speed to turn us into full speed consumers and workers, the contemplative state must  be relearned somehow. Obviously society doesn’t have a great interest to teach us how to do that or even to create such spaces though meditation practices are showing more an more obvious benefits on our health, balance and life (many articles have been released latelty about this and you can find them easily just browsing around on the web). Ok, let’s be fair the fact is when we sit to discover the treasures of our soul and our inner truth, we are not consuming nore making anyone rich and that could be a decent explanation. The worse staying that very often when the society and the market starts to get interest into meditation, words such as  ”productivity”, “efficiency” or worse “personal development” start to pop around, reduicing the whole effort to a way to make ourselves more producive which is exactly the opposite of what we should look for.

As a matter of fact we should just sit, learning how to seek, well, “nothing”… Meditation is not about efficiency and even the fact it increases our concentration and steadyness is a consequence and not something we look for so i always prefer to takl about raising consciousness or learning how to listen our soul. The idea behind it being to be able to follow this path with heart and conqueer our real freedom.

Have a great day full of light , joy and endless dances under the moon or the sun !

A path that have a heart : deep wisdom to be put in practice

A path that have heart,

A path that have heart,

“For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.” Don Juan’s teachings – Carlos Castañeda”

Don Juan Matus’s teachings .
Carlos Castañeda
Quotes on shamanism and wisdom
The shamanic path

Good day to all ,

This quote is surely one of the most famous of Carlos Castaneda’s books . However, it is far to be the easiest one to put into practice in a real, sincere and profound way.

On the path of shamanism and healing, to follow a path that have heart is one of the most essential things and if you are on such way, i really hope that you practice this wise words from Carlos Castaneda in a strong and sincere way.

It often requires sacrifices to take this path that have heart and we must also learn to overcome a number of fears not to let them rule us but once the good decisions are made, nothing can take one away from such path. It may take some time but it is priceless once you get there.

In our heart lies deep wisdom and unexpected guidance. We must take the time to learn to listen to it because the risk is real that someday day one wakes up somewhere between his life and death, thinking that is missed something important in his life and on top of it, for the wrong reasons. As long as a spark of life remains there’s still hope to do the required move but as we move forward in life the effort to switch to the proper path tend to become more and more difficult, the worth staying of course to never awake.

For this reason, anyone curious of these things in a deep way should  consider learning how to open his heart to listen to what is standing there for him. Nothing is hidden but we have to go beyond our mental noise and sat quietly in the comfortable solitude of our being to find this unexpected diamond.

Let me share a little more from Don Juan Matus, this real or imaginary master of Carlos Castaneda that opened the doors of a magic universe made of  energy and mystery to many of our contemporaries :

“This question is one that only a very old man asks. Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long long paths, but I am not anywhere. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.

Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, and then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.”

Have a great day full of joy and peace.

Rumi, the deep wisdom of a beautiful soul traveler

Beautiful words and Deep wisdom from Rumi

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.”

Rumi
Quotes on spirituality and shamanism

Hi Everyone,

I couldn’t help posting this beautiful quote from Rumi at once in spirituality and in shamanism. At this point and again, the place he is refering too sounds to me of no difference, nore dualism with the one we head while practicing meditation in shamanism, this beautiful place that we travel too when we go beyond the mind noise and when we open our heart.

Have a beautiful day.

PS : as for the Digital Art, it’s again a tribute to mother earth’s gift, a dreamed forest with a peaceful pond, the sort of magic place where we can meet our inner silence and learn from the beings and life around: the delicate sound of water, a jumping frog, a beautiful tree, a marvellous scent or a light wind that rises in the leaves and makes them gently rustling,

Some wise words to reflect the beauty of your souls so you shall never forget it

Let your beautiful soul' shine
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.”

Max Ehrmann
Quotes on shamanism and spirituality
Keep peace in your soul

Hi everyone,

I hope your day is shining as much as you let your soul shine.

I wanna share a beautiful poetry about tree with you today. Trees are magic and wise beings and this poetry is talking about it more than ten thousand words.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

~Joyce Kilmer,”Trees,” 1914

Have a beautiful day.

The Shaman, a self-reliant explorer of a magnificent universe

The Shaman, explorer of a magnificent hidden universe

The Shaman, explorer of a magnificent hidden universe

“The Shaman is a self-reliant explorer of the endless mansions of a magnificent hidden universe.”
Michael Harner
quotes on shamanism

Hello everyone,

Another great definition from Michael Harner, a great author on shamanism. I hope you enjoy the poetry of it.

Once engaged on the shamanic path , once entered in the shamanic world, the shamanism takes you to the wonderful shores of a hidden infinite universe that any book as complete it might be could never reach to express fully.

Out of his healing sessions and especially when doing ceremonies or meditating, the shaman and the medicine man receives continuously learnings and teachings from the endless and magic worlds he visits and from the great spirit, gods and guids he gets in contact with. Through these magical and wonderful experiences, he knows that Time is what will miss him the most to embrace and to receive even more and though he knows Time is a relative concept, yet it’s the only thing he does not want to lose. His deepest wish being to elevate himself more spiritually, to open more, to lose his human form and ego to connect more with mother nature, secrets spirits, rivers chants and birds singing,  to blend more with the beautiful cosmic laws he gets more and more familiar with along the way through his transes and meditations. And when he turns back into the material world his other wish is to share and help as from immemorial times shamans have always been at service.

To stay on his beautiful path, practicing and meditating, opened to silence and to gratitude, listening to a magic universe that reveals for him its deepest cosmic laws and its most wonderful secrets, to accord and reflect with an unfathomable and mysterious world that makes him feel at each moment, all the beauty of being, incarnated and embodied in the matter of this human’s body, soul and mind, and to stand in the infinite beauty of these magic revelations, this is the world of the shaman.

For this reason, the shaman just want to BE in the world and to breathe one time more, Each new day is a gift to him and so he receives is. He does not need to possess or seek for possessions. The only possession he seeks for are the ones necessary for its subsistence. Anything on top of it would be a reason more for him to attach to the matter. Energy is his realm. He’s grateful for the matter as it reminds him the importance of going over it to overpass his limited senses and perceptions, also because the incarnation is the way to learn to experiment and to feel, but to Be and to stay at service stays his greatest duty and joy.

Let us wish you a beautiful day full of joy  and peace.

Native american poetry and wisdom and mother earth love

“The beauty of the trees,
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass,
speaks to me.

The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
the rhythm of the sea,
speaks to me.

The strength of the fire,
the taste of salmon,
the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away,
they speak to me.
And my heart soars.”

The Importance of the now, buddhist and shamanic wisdom

The key of happiness and magic

The key of happiness and magic

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

Gautama Buddha
Quotes on spirituality and shamanism
Buddhist wisdom on meditation

Hello everyone,

This sentence from Buddha is very deep and it’s a real key of happiness. The same truth has been teached by most of the wisemen until now from Jesus Christ to Buddha and many other ones.

It’s not just food for mind. Mind has this tendancy to project or look back if you don’t train it a bit. To get to the point, a regular meditation practice is good. It helps bringing the proper concentration and the required state of mind to focus on the present moment. I hope you find a few minutes a day to stand in the confortable silence, listening and observing your mind, body and the world around you, gently observing your breathing. It’s a very important practice if you are in a spiritual path and this is also applicable to shamanism.

Enjoy your day and dance your truth!
