Fighting the Ghouls


I wrote on Facebook:

“Stuart Wilde died exactly one year ago. I liked his style of writing a lot even though some of the things he says are weird. I didn’t know that it was the anniversary of his death and wasn’t looking for this kind of article so it’s one of those synchronicity things. Anyway the advice is good and rather more profound than most of the stuff on Lifehack.”

Here are some Perception and Safety Ideas to Remember.
 
* One needs discipline to calm the mind or your darkness comes out and pulls in the ghouls. So don’t allow yourself to spin off on a tangent into some big upset that lasts hours and hours. That is not safe. And don’t fight with people, let them go. Agree to lose, it is safer. Be a Taoist; don’t confront, walk away, keep to your dignity at all times.
 
* Next, keep your life ordered and Zen-like in its cleanliness. This is a form of protection. The ghouls like clutter and dirt and confusion. And they are drawn to anyone of out control and stressed out.
 
* Then, stay away from anything degrading, violent films or degrading images and news on TV, and as said, stay away from pornography. This is the biggest ghoul-attracter as it comes out of the slaver’s mentality. You need clean celestial images in your mind to stay safe.
 
* Stay away from poisonous and dangerous places. Don’t put yourself at risk by hanging out with dodgy people that hurt your luminosity, and by going to degrading places.
 
*Use your feelings to decide things so the ghouls can’t pull you the wrong way by feeding your thinking mind with loads of misinformation.
 
* Stay calm, remember the adage: no fear no anger.
 
* Drink camomile even if you don’t like it. Drink lots of it, for it makes the ghouls sick.
 
* Use a drop of lavender on your crown chakra, third eye, throat and heart. Use that to anoint yourself. Do it every morning. Pray as you do it; be grateful.
 
* Use lavender in the bath and put a few drops of it on a towel when you dry yourself.
 
* Do the forgiveness prayer I taught people, whereby you go on your knees and beg forgiveness for your transgressions in the past. Do it for thirty days even if you have done it before. Blow love to the people you hurt and those that are trying to hurt you…
 
* Try to be a vegetarian if you are not one already. It helps greatly with your perception, as you become more alkaline.
 
* Remember the law of allowing: let everyone be whatever they want to be. Let them wake in their beds and believe whatever they want to believe. Don’t judge and don’t criticize; if you don’t like it, either bear it, or move on. By not entangling yourself you stay safer.
 
* Learn to suffer in silence. It is pointless moaning as it calls the ghouls to your pain. Look within when you are in pain. Accept your life as it comes, and then change the bits you can later on.
 
*Do a three-day fast from time to time if that’s medically appropriate for you. It makes you serene and celestial.
 
*Go to silence as a discipline, not talking for a day at a time heals you. Be brave. Walk along the bank of the Tao and trust in the power of that and your power and let that carry you forward with information and God’s inspiration.

Remarkable. I had not realised that the Chinese space programme was so advanced.

SUPPORT each other in Fitness!!

I got this from a post in Facebook. It doesn’t appear to be difficult and I will add it to my developing fitness practice alongside the at least five minutes QiGong ‘Standing Stake’ that I have also resolved to add.

Resolutions

I see thine eyes gazing at the dark of my heart,
Lord of my life,
I wonder if my failure and wrongs are forgiven.
For many were my days without service
and nights of forgetfulness; futile were the flowers
that faded in the shade not offered to thee.

Often the tied strings of my lute slackened
at the strains of thy tunes.
And often at the ruin of wasted hours
my desolate evenings were filled with tears.

But have my days come to their end at last,
Lord of my life, while my arms round thee
grow limp, my kisses losing their truth?
Then break up the meeting of this languid day!*
Renew the old in me in fresh forms of delight;
and let the wedding come once again in
a new ceremony of life.

~Rabindranath Tagore

At the beginning of a new year we hope for renewal. About a week ago I wrote in a Facebook post:

I didn’t want to make my resolutions all at once at the beginning of the new year. Hitting myself with a long list hasn’t worked well in the past so this year I will add one new (behaviour change) resolution each week until Lent at the beginning of March. My first resolution, to run at least three times a week, has survived its first week. My second resolution, is to get away from computers, TV, smartphones, tablets, the Internet and even radio for the 12 hours between 21:00 and 09:00.

My first resolution has now survived the first two weeks but the second lasted two days. I am not dropping it however; I am persistent if not consistent and this will continue as a rule even if it is not always and entirely observed. All Sabbaths are made for us and not we for the Sabbaths and the breaking of a Sabbath does not mean that it is not useful to us or that we shall not return to observance of it.

My third resolution, prompted by my return to a very unhealthy looking belly and being overweight by almost three stones, is to change my eating habits in order to lose weight and become healthier. At minimum this means giving up confectioneries and sweet drinks including juices with the exception of an occasional morning orange juice. I will also give up alcohol with the exception of an occasional glass of wine and give up milk products with the possible exception of plain yoghurt and cottage cheese.

I am currently reading a diet and exercise book called ’10 Pounds in 10 Days’ written by ‘celebrity trainer’, Jackie Warner. The book is good enough for me to have read beyond the first chapter and to have started following some of its advice. I have reintroduced chicken breast (free-range) to my diet and cooked this with broccoli, carrots, spinach and new potatoes as my main meal yesterday. I also bought a pair of 6 kg dumbbells and did over an hour of exercises from Warner’s book with these. This morning, after my shower and before breakfast, I weighed 12 stone 10 lb. I will, mostly, follow Warner’s programme over the next 10 days but as I won’t be following it exactly (I never follow anything exactly) I won’t be able blame her if I don’t drop 10 pounds in that time.
