“There are two ways to fail on the road to Truth…
The first is to never start out
and the second is to not go all the way to the end.”
— The Buddha
I love this wisdom from the Buddha because I think it speaks directly to where we are in 2015.
You hear about “your journey” all the time whether it’s the spiritual journey or the creative journey or your journey to health. With so many options and so many offers of support at least in those first steps, it’s relatively easy to get started. The more challenging part may be getting “all the way to the end.
“What does “the end” really mean? If you’re looking to lose a few pounds or earn a professional certification, you can name your destination and celebrate when you get there. But I think some of the most profound journeys don’t have a clear cut conclusion – and that is a wonderful thing.
The Greatest Journey Is Into Yourself. How Will You Get There?
The teachings of Chumpi Illumination help you uncover who you really are. When you use a CHILL form – when you lie in a certain formation of Chumpi stones – you are creating a doorway for your own divine self to come through.
But what makes CHILL unique?
Certainly we’re using the Chumpi stones in a way that no one else in the world does, blending Andean wisdom and insights from the stars with the practical, embodied truths that come through the pairing of intuition and muscle testing.
Another singular factor is the concept of Twelve, that sacred number that echoes through all of creation. There are twelve facets of human consciousness and each Chumpi is keyed to one of them.
We heal and transform by finding ourselves in relationship with all twelve of those facets. It’s an endless weaving of energies that nevertheless brings us to some greater Truth with every CHILL experience. All greater truths dissolve lesser ones and continual growth becomes effortless and attainable.
One Way to Truth: The Mountains & Jungles of Peru
Right now, I am still reflecting on my most recent journey to Peru with a group of adventurers, some of whom experienced the Andes for the first time.
Together, we also visited the jungle and the cloud forest. This was an unprecedented opportunity to disconnect from the distractions of daily life and to tune into another reality – literally into the reality of ants and monkeys who seemed to be living their lives as they have since the beginning of time.
They seem to be blissfully unaware of their own facets of being. Theses animals and plants have their own way to Truth, and they can teach the modern, hyperconnected citizen of the world so much by simply being.
Another Way to Truth is Much Closer to Home
As I reintegrate with my daily routine here at home, my mind is on the Mystery School, deepening the training of returning students and making room for new people to take their first steps into the work.
On Saturday and Sunday, June 27 and 28 the next CHILL Introduction, Illuminating Your Greater Reality will be your chance to begin the journey into your own Sacred Center.
You still have a month to make plans to spend the weekend in Warwick, NY. Perhaps this is the time to invite a friend or loved one to walk this new path with you? Get more information and register here.
