The Power of Visualization

by Administrator on April 1, 2009

The following Zen story illustrates third eye visioning in action. A master craftsman in ancient China was commissioned by the emperor to make a cabinet for the emperor’s bedroom in the Imperial Palace. The craftsman, a Zen monk, told the emperor he would not be able to begin work for five days. The monk was seen by the emperor’s spies simply sitting, apparently doing nothing for the entire time. Then, when five days had passed, the monk got up. Within three days, he had made the most extraordinary cabinet anyone had ever seen. The emperor was so pleased and so curious that he had the monk brought before him and asked what he had been doing the five days before he had begun his work. And this is what the monk said

  1. All the first day I spent releasing every thought of fear or failure, of dread of punishment if my work should displease the emperor.
  2. All the second day I spent releasing every thought of inadequacy and every belief that I might lack the skill to produce a cabinet worthy of the emperor.
  3. All the third day, I spent releasing every hope and desire for fame, glory and reward if I should produce a cabinet that would please the emperor
  4. All the fourth day, I spent releasing the pride that might arise in me if I should succeed in my task and earn the praise of the emperor.
  5. And all the fifth day, I spent beholding in the mind the clear vision of that cabinet which I knew even an emperor would desire, which now stands before you.

Get Ready

by Administrator on December 22, 2013

Get yourself ready, and do your work. Sit in quiet contemplation, and stillness. Cast the net of your intentions beyond. See what you want.

Prepare. Rather than being a slave to worry, be a warrior to certainty. Slaying the demons as they arrive.

You alone are in charge of this. It’s time. No need to wait, you’ve been here before.

It will go how it will, yet NOW you won’t be in the way of it.

Stick with it…

February 24, 2013

Currently attention spans are miniscule, as is happiness and peace of mind. When we stick with something- see it through, have integrity, complete it, even if it’s a mood, its power over us diminishes. That’s what I did. I sat still. It was a turning point as I had been physically and mentally running everywhere. [...]
