A rolling stone gathers no moss

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Rolling Stone

Buddha: “A rolling stone gathers no moss”- I like this.

Think on it. This doesn’t necessarily mean continual movement of forms but it can mean renewal- allow yourself to be renewed, revitalized in each moment. Keep in mind that you too are a rolling stone even when you are still.

A Fine Way To Live: Buddha with Zoe

A fine way to live

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: A Fine Way to Live

Buddha: We’ve spoken before about right use of mind.

Your mind directs your being. Towards what? Towards whatever it is concerned or focused upon. There may be no method in this. In life, behaving this way would be considered folly. A life of perpetual meandering. Now some people do behave this way. This is considered to be an undesirable or even mentally ill state of being. Unless you wish life to give you more meandering like experiences, focus yourself. Start with your mind: what do you wish to achieve? How will you achieve? Then be. And as you be, act upon your plan. This is a fine way to live in this, your world.

Sparkle and Shine: Buddha with Zoe

Conversations with Buddha and Zoe: Sparkle and Shine

Buddha: Zoe, there will be times when your energies are down. Times when life doesn’t sparkle and shine. Does that mean that sparkle and shine doesn’t exist if you can’t see it? Of course not. You just can’t see it.

Many of you give up hope because you can’t see the wonder or the beauty in life anymore. Perhaps you feel you have never seen it. This is only because, right now, it is hidden from you. This is not necessarily your fault: it’s just the law of averages. Where your perception sits on this law dictates your experience.

So if you want the sparkle and shine to come back, or indeed be discovered for the first time, go and look for it. Find someone who is currently experiencing that and piggy back their perception. Learn to see what they can see. Learn to live how they can live, and you will be happy. Or at least you will be on your way to find out more about yourself and more about the nature of perceptual reality that surrounds you and often loses you to it’s fleeting and delusional nature.

This is all. Be happy today; or at least be a little happier.

Mind- A Game: Buddha with Zoe

Mind- a game

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Mind- A Game

Buddha: Let us start how we must begin. A mind is a mind. A tooth is a tooth, A television a television. But are they not also of mind? Who named them? Created them? Can you visualize them? Experience them? Only through your mind.

So, where do I say you should all start? By questioning everything you think you know. You think you know. You think you know nothing. You know… You know…

Well I say to you- Ha! There is nothing to know. There is everything to know. But all of it- ALL OF IT- is a play on words, worlds, concepts, realities. Each of you go as far as your mind will let you. Know this.

We can go further next time.

Right Action for Health: Buddha with Zoe

Right action for health

Note from Zoe: Yesterday I had a personal conversation with Jesus who was enlightening my friend and I on taking ‘right action’, particularly in regards to health. Buddha took this further when we ‘spoke’. The capital letters are his.

Conversations with Buddha and Zoe: Right Action for Health

Buddha: Yesterday Zoe, you heard my colleague speak to you about the need for right action and proper rest. Let me recap for everyone.

‘Right action’ is when you are choosing to take a course, undertake the course, when it is right for you. Not right for another, but right for you. Of course nothing that could ever be truly right action for you could involve harming another because that is not how you are designed. Right action is when you choose to truly fulfill yourself and take steps to achieve that. It is through this right action, together with right reason and circumstance, that health and well-being are promoted. Quite simply deep fulfillment makes illness impossible.

Right action makes illness a fleeting guest in the house of the body. You are learning this Zoe. The fulfillment needs to be deep and deeply personal to the individual. Whatever it is! Picking up a needle and thread, climbing a mountain, watching an apple grow, making a deal. It is only through deep fulfillment- unique to every individual- that illness is made a hasty guest.

Rest is important too. However, rest WHEN THE BODY IS TIRED! Many of you today rest when your mind is tired. The body must still be rewarded for giving you a vehicle in which you exist. Move the body during the day till it is tired. If you return from work and you feel tired asked yourself who is tired? Your body? Your mind? Your spirit? This is important. Rest the BODY when tired. Rest the mind when the mind is tired. But do not forget the needs of the body, if actually your body is never tired by your work. This is very important if you wish illness to stay infrequently, if at all.

Now WHEN the body is tired- REST. But the mind will need to facilitate this rest, otherwise all that will be experienced is a temporary cessation of movement without deep regeneration. Practically rest when your body is tired and ENJOY it. Even if it’s the flu- enjoy giving the body what it needs. This mental and emotional willingness to physically rest promotes deep regeneration. And, if the body is tired, this is what it needs. As a course of right action, give it this.

Be mindful though of over inactivity- a problem I see as I look on. The body can’t be tired if not worked, unless ill or undergoing deep regenerative transformation and healing. The body cannot be healthful if its needs are not met- to move. Nor can you if you are not giving yourself fulfillment through right action. This is a process that needs to be relearned to accommodate the shift in lifestyle that has occurred.

Think on this today.

Resolution: Buddha with Zoe

Resolution

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Resolution

Buddha: We wish to speak with you today about resolution and a resolute day.

Many of you have set New Year resolutions. You are thinking and feeling about what you want and don’t want. This is fine. In fact it can become a good practice. So, let’s make it so.

Resolution- decision without question. Desire to carry thought form into life through action and emotional and mental dedication.

Resolute day-a day where you decide you will resolve on action and remain dedicated to your course or your decision despite what others matters come your way.

Can you see and feel how learning this may help you in times to come? We can. So try. Take one thing today and be resolute. Unite with mind and emotion and make action from this healthy union.

This is all for today.

Similarities

Conversations with Zoe and Jesus: Similarities

Jesus: The time is now to rest your arms against your fellow man.  The time for destruction based on separation (you there, me here) is over.  Unite.

This isn’t just warring parties but for each individual.

Who carries destruction through separation in his/her mind.  End the discrimination.  End the bitterness and envy towards others.  End this now and you will be freed from the coming wave.

So for today work to see the similarities in one another.  Resolve to explore what you share and not desire to withhold apart.

Race: Jesus with Zoe

Race

Conversations with Jesus and Zoe: Race

Jesus: There is much talk about “Race” in your culture today.  So much associated with this.  Your past dictating your social future, etc.  In spirit we are all one with no concern over pigment of skin, caste and creed, kith and kin.  Unite as one and you shall find peace within.  Your skin is temporary.  It sheds, renews and eventually will lose its form and you will find yourself with us, without any thought of it.  Rejoice for this truth can be yours now.  Celebrate the differences in form that you have for so few years.  Work today to let go of mind or social based judgements.  We are all one.  Learn to look for this in those that are “different” and you will move closer to us.

Amen.
