Just one word
"Good morning! This is Kuan Yin.
Habit can be a lead weight around your neck, or a lifeline that repeatedly brings you back to center.
The human brain is brilliantly designed, and performs perfectly what it is programmed to perform. How are you programming yourself?
It is said that it takes 3 weeks to truly form a habit, it takes a lot longer than that to unform a habit, so be careful about what you think, say, and do that create pathways in your being that will continue to follow those instructions.
Think about the power innate in these statements! Can you imagine what you could do with Divinely guided habits of thought and action? Old habits get comfortable, even if they have constant negative outcomes in your life. It takes quite a push sometimes, to break free of the addictive nature of comfort.
The ego mind doesn't like change, and will fight you on it, but let's try a habit idea that really brings light to your path.
Choose a word that means something to you, just one word. It can be a name, a place, something that signifies an idea or concept to you. It is preferable that it is a word with high energy, frequency, and light.
The being through whom these teaching flow has chosen the word, "Kong", which is not translatable, but essentially embodies the Buddhist concept of deep stillness and awareness.
What is the process? The idea is to go to a space where there is no thought, even for a few moments at first, and to call upon your own high, immortal soul self to come and be with you. This Source self knows what to do, how to do it, and when. It is connected to the infinite wisdom of all that is, but must be allowed space and stillness to do its work.
It can be very difficult to get the mind to let go. It feels that it must be thinking and doing at all times or it is falling down on its job. Deep mindful quiet is a threat to the illusory control that the ego mind has, but we must find a way to rest in, and expand the present moment deep stillness that is the ticket out of the mortal dream state.
So say the word, feel it resonate throughout your body, assist your awareness to your lower abdomen, invoke the presence of your Immortal soul, and be quiet. Feel the deep vibration of Source life coursing through you, listen for any guidance that might be waiting for you.
If you can do that for 10 seconds, it is a win! Can you expand upon that? Make that quiet space such a home for yourself that you don't want the flat, one dimensional noise and nonsense of the outer illusion to intrude, ever.
You will find that you will be able to expand upon and increase the time spent there, bit by bit. Ten seconds doesn't sound like much, but if you do it 100 times or more per day, it adds up. It all counts. This is creating a crack in the dark, hardened crust of what has built up through a lifetime of thinking thinking thinking, and karmic blockage and interference. Let the light in!
A spiritual writer once said that this is a space of anticipation, that you listen in deep humility as if waiting for the first chords of a great symphony to burst into sound.
Say your word, go to the 1st chakra, feel the presence of your soul, and wait, as if for the most incredibly beautiful sound that ever happened in all time and all universes. Do you feel the vibrant beauty and possibility of this space? Even if you never hear a word or experience a vision, this is the place of power. When you are thinking, everything that is real, stops. When you are in quiet awareness, everything moves. It is simple. Not easy, but simple.
Try this for the three weeks, and see what happens. Are you more peaceful? Does creativity flow? Love up wells for no apparent reason? The mind, which is subtle and not easily subdued, will find ways to distract you, to make you forget, but remember your word. Create this habit. Write it on your hand, assign a piece of jewelry to be your reminder, be creative in the remembering.
Form a powerful Divine word habit in this moment! Fall in love with it.
That is all. I love you."
