Singing The Beauty

Written by Gede Prama

In the cycle of time when Donald Trump is the US president, many spiritual friends are very concerned about the public discourse that is filled by the acitivities of attacking the bad. One of the elders of the spiritual world in the US, Ram Dass even put a photo of Donald Trump lined up with a photo of Jesus and Buddha on the altar where he prays. Mark Motousek also repeatedly shared in mailing list that he is very concerned about the public discoure which is full of attacking the bad. The same thing happened in other countries. The condition is even worse in the cycle of time when there’s transition of power. The discourse about attacking the bad is even more frightening.

Very few of the people are aware, the discourse of attacking the bad is convincingly making human beings water the dangerous seeds inside. In the language of classical psychology of Sigmund Freud, anything that is long talked about in the conscious world will affect the subconscious. Quoting from friends in cognitive psychology, conversations in the mind can be a killer but can also be a healer. If the conversation only attacks the bad, of course it will kill later. Spiritual friends who deeply learn the psychology of energy with specialization of conflict understand, the lack of energy in human beings is tried to be fulfilled by taking it from others. And in the case of the conversation attacking the bad, it’s one form of lack of energy that wants to be fulfilled by taking it from someone else.

Sadly, such an approach does not meet the energy shortages in the long run. Instead, it extended a long list of long-term violence. Notice the statistics that come to the surface. If in the ancient times most people died because of shortcomings, in this day and age most people die because of excessive consumption. Some consume excess food then exposed to obesity, there is excess sugar then having diabetes. The point is one, there are too many unbalanced souls. Just want to be sweet, don’t want to be bitter. Just want to eat well, don’t want to be overweight. If you look at the root, the lack of energy inside that is covered by taking it from someone else does not solve the problem, instead it extends the long list of unbalanced souls.

Singing the goodness

To the clean and clear spiritual friends, lack of energy is more likely to be refilled not by taking it from other people, through conversations that put themselves in the right position, and put others in the wrong position. But by learning to connect with the energy center. Different traditions use a different approach in this regard. And on the path of meditation, the energy center is approached by having less complaint but more smiles, less resistance but more acceptance. The practical daily steps in this case, learn to train yourself to always see the beautiful sides of each present moment.

The beauty of not having children, someone is constantly enjoying honeymoon with life partner. Even if you are really don’t have children, it is an invitation to take good care of many creatures as good as caring your own children. The beauty of the house installments has not been paid off, someone is trained to be moderate. The beauty of not having a vehicle, every day you will exercise. The beauty of naughty boy, parents have the opportunity to pay the karmic debt. The beauty of having life partner which is full of anger, every day you will take a course of being patience. The beauty of not yet graduated from school, someone has a wide opportunity to enjoy young age. The beauty of having career from below, there are many stairs of gratitude that will be passed. The beauty of children has grown up, there is an abundance of time to heal yourself and enjoy old age.

In a short language, there is always something beautiful even behind problems and calamities. Japan rose to become the world economic power after its two cities were destroyed by atomic bombs. The United States grew into a superpower state because it was originally built by humans who were thrown from their home country. Lee Iacocca was once the hero of the business world in the United States there because he was once thrown out from the top executive position in an automotive company, then forced down and based in a warehouse. In the language of happiness seekers, the important thing is not what happened, but to process what happened into growth ingredients later.

Just as calm ponds naturally help lotus flowers to bloom beautifully, people whose conversations are always beautiful can also naturally see the good out there. Many teenagers have been enlightened by the message like this: “Your eyes will grow into beautiful eyes, if you see beautiful things in others eyes.” This will open the gate to those who find happiness by singing goodness, not attacking the bad. From here also people begin to water the beautiful seeds inside. From here also the friends began to send the seeds of light into the future. Most importantly, this is the seeds of a very healthy soul.

Absorb beauty, share goodness

Learning from a series of stories like this, the Compassion spiritual family constantly invites people, in Bali in particular, in social media in general, to keep singing beautifully. Not only in a symbolic meaning, but also in the true meaning. That is why, in every meeting the spiritual friends are invited to sing. From singing children’s songs, to singing songs with good memories. Children’s songs carry the spirit of innocence and joy. Songs with beautiful memories carry the spirit of beauty.

The spiritual logic is like this. Humans who are absorbed in beauty, especially by always looking at the beautiful sides of each present moment, are actually having abundant energy inside. A number of studies in the West have opened up secrets, spending more time in the open nature, with deep gratitude and thankfulness, making stress hormones in the brain drop dramatically. Simultaneously the brain hormones that are responsible for healing tasks ascend very convincingly. In the blue regions of the earth such as the Japanese island of Okinawa, where many humans are found to be very old and healthy open the secret, they grow in the open nature, eating food that is directly from nature, and being grateful for their life deeply.

In conclusion, one who deeply absorbs energy in nature through the spirit of beauty can fill their lack of energy inside. As the beautiful garden invites the coming of the beautiful butterflies, abundant energy inside also naturally presents a desire to share energy through love in action. The combination of beauty inside with everyday life which is filled with love in action, this is what the Celestine manuscript called as the pinnacle of achievement. Once you have arrived here, friends will often hear messages like this in nature: “You don’t need a goal. You are the goal “. Humans of this type are very few indeed. But like the sun. In this world the sun is only one. But from that one sun, a lot of darkness is illuminated.
