From Ernst Wilhelm’s Graha Sutras:

”Vishnu then said, ‘When I want to destroy a man I grant him all the wealth and power in the world. He then gets involved in them and forgets his true nature. When I want to save a man from this delusion I take away his all. Becoming rid of all his faults he will become Mine. Bali has never swerved from the path of truth. Blessed by me he will become the Indra during the next Manvantara (another cycle of creation). Until then he will go to Sutala (a heavenly realm) where I will always be with him.’ 

Vamana took everything from Bali, but after Bali surrendered to Him, He blessed him to be the next Indra. In the same manner Jupiter may take away in order to allow for greater blessings to follow.”

Reading this today was a comforting reminder. I wanted to share in case someone else could use it too.

Praying for all.

I want to take a moment of prayer for the people affected by or involved in the death/killing of George Floyd, as well as those affected or involved with the riots. 

God please shine your loving light on us all. Amen.

Also, a picture to help, no doubt some of you are not aware that there are extremely professional, almost paramilitary agitators within the group making things worse. So it’s not always your local citizenry that are doing this:

We’re not that dense. 🙂   We know they’re in these uprisings. Those same people came to a rally in a nearby town here last year. The Westboro Baptists came to our city as well (more agitators). They’re everywhere. 

This is a place for prayer, however. How about we pray that as a society, we can find a way through this. To see clearly that we are being pitted against each other, so we can move past that. Namaste. 🙏

Saying metta and sending equanimity for my baby bro, at his request. Life has thrown him yet another curve ball. He is caught in a massive flood situation, ‘unprecedented’ it is being called, despite the region having had one of historic magnitude already in 2018. His landlord had an excavator brought in in an attempt to save his houses, and the RCMP landed a helicopter on my bro’s lawn to check up on him and his neighbours. They are in a mountainous area with only one exit route left. And his canoe. But you wouldn’t want to get on those raging torrents at the moment. I would imagine the torrential downpours and storms must have destroyed his garden, which he was counting on for food. He had recently lost his job and started another one.

This evening my housemate let me know I may need to look for somewhere else to live. 

Her son’s dorm lease is up and it looks like college will be online in the fall. He could live here while I’m here, but it would be tight. 

I’m being given all the time I need, but my lease ends in two months. And I am in tears because I am so tired of moving!!!! 😢 I can’t take it anymore. We’re in the middle of a pandemic and my country’s on the verge of civil war–I feel safe here, away from the city. 

Please just say a prayer. I am lost. None of us asked for this messy time we’re living in. I am afraid my peace will be destroyed.

Today – June 5 – is Great Invocation Day – and what good timing. It the day every year when people all over the world say the Great Invocation prayer to invoke help and love and goodwill from the Powers that be. Whatever religion or no religion, it is clear humanity could use some help and inspiration about how to heal our world.

Here’s the prayer. Just saying it alone helps, but you can mentally link up with all the people around the world who are saying it throughout the day today. More at WorldInvocationDay.org. 

The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ* return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

*Many religions believe in a World Teacher, a “Coming One”, knowing him under such names
as the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Kalki Avatar and the Bodhisattva. These terms are
sometimes used in versions of the Great Invocation for people of specific faiths.

These words have great power even if you don’t understand/agree with them. I have gotten into saying them whenever I’m feeling bleak about what’s going on. It makes me feel like I am helping the forces of light; or at least not giving in to the forces of dark. You can feel it – sometimes more than others (like today, full moon) but you can feel it working.

Words of power – what other words have that power? The Lords Prayer, 23rd Psalm, it would be good to put them all here so we can check in and refresh when things get tough while we are going through these big outer planet transits the next couple of years.
