My blog, The Gypsy Life, has led me to creating a long desired website that reflects my commitment to the Heart and Heart Work in the world. It had never occurred to me that creating a website would lead me closer to being a more authentic version of myself. So, I am announcing that on Sunday February 26th my new website will be live at:
http://www.mayalunachristobel.com Please visit me and share your thoughts.
Here is a excerpt:
Bob Dylan said “the times they are a changin”. Those from the 60’s thought this meant for the better. Yet we were wrong in so many ways. That was nearly a half a century ago. And our times have changed beyond recognition. With those changes, each and every technological advance, every war for oil and one recession after another have also come stresses we could not have envisioned either. We face skyrocketing divorce, drug resistant disease, over population, the vanishing of entire species and eco-systems, as well as an entire generation lost and apathetic. And we now suffer another residual from our overly technological life: Soul Sickness.
For many people, the heart has gone out of their lives, hope is a thing of the past and the mind has taken over searching for possible solutions to these mounting challenges that seem either out of reach or too numerous to achieve. We are a world deeply estranged from the soulful life, cut off from nature and from one another. We are, in fact, teetering on the brink of becoming one of the species facing extinction in our lifetime. If you put your finger up into the wind, it is all but apparent that our climate itself is the perfect metaphor for where we are as humans: Out of control. And when faced with these realities, we are also, at that same moment, offered unprecedented opportunity for expansion, love, prosperity and healing. That is what this website is about: The historical shift which brings with it an evolution of consciousness and the possibility for unity, joy and love in each persons life. The possibilities are endless.
Like all paradoxes, these seemingly bleak truths are accompanied by just as profound an opportunity for joy, wholeness and a soulful life, as all the catastrophic senarios that litter the news and cyberspace. As a culture we will never return to the illusion of the American Dream. We are perched on a much larger and more powerful dream for a unified world that can if fact live in harmony and peace. But it is a choice. And now is our choice point. People are rising up, joining in, creating solutions and caring more than ever before. It is all possible in the recognition that where we place our focus and intention, we create our reality. We are the authors of our future. The Heart is the engine to get us there.
The heart is what every aspect of this website is devoted to. We are moving from worshiping the power of the mind to recognizing the power of the heart. Science shows that the quantifiable measurement of the electromagnetic field of the mind is eclipsed by the sheer magnitude of the electromagnetic field that emanates and surrounds the heart. If we could harness and express this power, then there is simply nothing that is not achievable in this life.
“Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you… yet, someone survived… You can do anything you choose to do.” –Maya Angelou
My commitment is to teach, to talk to, to guide and to inspire as many people as I can to take a leap into “the heart” of who they are, to risk knowing themselves at the deepest level possible which is not the mission of the mind. This “knowing” comes from our direct experience with our soul, who incarnated and now lives in this one body that moves us through our lives. Our power to change anything, our power to heal, to succeed, to create wealth, to find and express love and to change our world for the better, has been with each and every one of us all along. It is simply a matter of‘remembering’.
This website will be dedicated toward that goal: To inspire you toward remembering who you are and accessing the power of the heart so that you might live, love and create your life with passion and beauty, with care for our planet and for others….from the heart. If not now, when?
In every death a rebirth; all efforts to find joy and freedom drive us back within ourselves. As Lama Karma says, “It’s all good.”
And, lest we not forget, all we see and experience is nothing more than a mirror. As Dzogchen Master, Rinpoche Choegyl Namkhai Norbu teaches, “There is no place to go and nothing to do.”
Perhaps simply Being our innate Perfection is the biggest challenge.
We live in amazing times…and our ability to see into these times, and manage our energy is how we will, together…form the networks we long for. Here is to love…and pushing past fear to let love in.
