Listening to the Signs

Originally posted on Dawn Rogers:

Signs

When we open up to & ask for guidance, we will get exactly that but will we notice it?

We can receive guidance from Spirit but this guidance can sometimes be very subtle & easily missed.

The language of our Higher Self & Spirit is that of symbols & messages of guidance can & will come through in ways that are meant to stand out, so what is it that we are looking for?

  • lyrics on the radio
  • license plates
  • billboards
  • scents
  • gut feelings
  • numbers
  • dreams
  • and a million other signs that are meant to generate an emotional response

The key to actually getting the message is to (one) be open to it, and (two) be present enough to see it when it happens.

What triggered me to write this post was my acknowledgment to myself of how much more likely I was to not only receive, but also notice, the ‘good’ signs than…

Marvel Will Not Move ‘Captain America 3′ for ‘Batman V. Superman’

Originally posted on Variety:

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is ready for a superhero showdown.

The studio head told Empire that they’re not going to change “Captain America 3′s” May 6, 2016 release date just because Warner Bros. is launching “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on the same day.

“I continue to be all for quality entertainment for moviegoers to enjoy on weekends,” he said. “If it is on the same weekend, I enjoy it slightly less. But we are doing what we’ve always done, which is sticking to our plan and sticking to our vision for the movies going forward and we have a very large vision that we’re working on for ‘Cap 3′ and for all the threes movies and just because another movie plops down onto one of ours, doesn’t mean we are going to alter that. Maybe we should, but we’re not going to.”

It was widely anticipated that…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Warner Bros.’ return to J.K. Rowling’s world of witchcraft and wizardy, will open in theaters on Nov. 18, 2016. Set in New York City 70 years before the adventures of Harry Potter, the Rowling-scripted movie is the first of a trilogy based on the 42-page guidebook purportedly written by magizoologist Newt Scamander. The book’s foreword was penned by one Albus Dumbledore, so it’s presumed that a younger version of the future headmaster of Hogwarts will play a role in the new trilogy.

No director or cast has been announced, and Rowling is still working on the script.

Bryan Cranston is returning to television: HBO acquired the rights to Broadway’s All the Way, the Tony-winning play in which the Breaking Bad star portrayed Lyndon B. Johnson, the network confirmed to EW.

Cranston will reprise his role as the 36th president of the United States, with playwright Robert Schenkkan on board to adapt the stage version for the small screen. Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer on the HBO Films project.

All the Way was named best play at the Tonys last month, where Cranston took home a trophy for his performance as LBJ. The show closed June 29 after 131 performances at the Neil Simon Theatre, breaking Broadway box office records when it grossed over $1.4 million over eight performances—more than any play ever brought in during a single week.

Learning or leaning?

Originally posted on Buddhism now:

Art © Marcelle HanselaarThe Buddha placed great empha­sis on personal experience and understanding. But we’re inclined to forget this and try to obtain understanding second-hand, from someone else. In other words we abdicate our responsibilities. We may fall into the trap of going to teachers/gurus — not to learn from them, but to lean on them. Wisdom, compassion and realization, of course, cannot be found this way. Naturally, unless we’re very foolish, we shall learn from others. But there is a very fine line between learning and leaning.

From the August 1989 Buddhism Now.

NARA-HARI as KALAH / TIME in His Cosmic Lion-Headed Bhagavad-Gita Theophany was worshiped by all of civilized humanity in the ‘Golden’ HARI Age. The Persians called Him ZERVAN. Greeks called Him Chronus. Romans called Him Saturnus. Egyptians called Him Heru-Ausu Amun-Ra. He was the Jew’s Yahu-Tzaboath and AREYAH, ARIEL their LION of JUDAH! In Meroe Africa He was called APADEMAK. Shaivites called Him, HARA, Kalah Bairava. Buddhists called Him, HARI, Kalah Bairab. He was the Lion-Headed JAG-WERE God of the Americas / Western Hemisphere. His Feathered-Serpent was His Seraphic Alter-Form. Please, Dear Friends, view these Icons / Murtis and ponder deeply Their import for the future unity of humanity!

This deserves a detailed explanation. God-willing I will be able to find the one that I did years ago, to post here. To start, please note the ‘Caduceus’ which is really a NAGAKAL…

Book Review: Autobiography of a Yogi

In this sphere, you are able to be at two places at one time, see into people’s minds, and even walk through walls. You may levitate, disappear in one area of the world and reappear in another, or create something from nothing. This only happens in fantastical movies right?

Not according to sage Paramhansa Yogananda. In his timeless autobiography of a yogibook, Autobiography of a Yogi, Yogananda invites us into an endearing adventure of his life as a yogi. From infancy into his old age, he blesses us with the gift of a spiritual journey so few ever have dreamed of. Not only does he lend us his life’s perspective, but he graciously takes us to the very heart of the some of India’s most enlightened masters.

The Autobiography of a Yogi is a spiritual masterpiece, teaching enlightenment through Kriya yoga…
