Guiding People to Get Back Up

Written by Gede Prama

Dawson Church Ph.D, an expert in energy psychology, in his beautiful book titled Mind To Matter tells us a bright light: “The human mind can change very small things like atoms and molecules, it can also change big things like society”. Certainly this is not just any random thought, but a thought that combines strong beliefs with also strong intentions.

This is an invitation to all friends, although some news is still pessimistic and some people still sell fear and panic, but let’s combine strong beliefs with strong intentions. In the spiritual world there are old presuppositions like this. If you wait until the new bright weather to sing, your song will sink amidst the singing of many people and many birds.

In the same way, if you wait for things to fully recover and then share the Light, you will be called late heroes. The invitation then, no need to wait for everything to be bright and clear, let’s start the steps to guide the community to get back up. Here are some of the guidance.

1. Defeat your fear immediately using self confidence
2. Equipped with genuine prayer, keep your faith and make it bigger, decrease your level of fear.
3. Meet your fear like a kite encounters a wind crashing. Like surfers encountered strong waves
4. Always whisper to yourself many times every day: “I am a very deep gratitude”
5. To be deepened, gratitude is far higher and greater than any kind of fear
6. Practically, look at the things to be thankful for beneath this great crisis
7. From higher health awareness, becoming closer to family members, until a wonderful chance to rest the body
8. From the dramatically decreasing carbon dioxide, until the improvement of earth ozone layers
9. Now use this faith to share the Light of hope to as many people as you can
10. Stop watching and spreading scary news
11. Share good news as much as possible that inspires confidence and hope to other people

Through this approach, you are becoming a spiritual hero. No need to be respected and admired by others. Or even hoping for power and profit. Forget it. Just remember, sincerity is a balancing energy that makes the natural surroundings so much more beautiful and fragrant.

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
