Can you believe it is already the 5th of October? In a few more breaths, we will be deciding what to wear for the holidays! Isn’t it funny how time seems to speed up at different times of the year?
As I contemplated my intentions for the month of October, the following keywords arose: Curiosity, Mindfulness, and Aspiration.
Curiosity ~ Do you ever feel despair and/or judgment about what you see happening in the world? I sure do, so this keyword is to help me watch the Consciousness moving through Everything with not only neutrality, but with curiosity. My intention is to ask questions like, “Isn’t that interesting the way the consciousness is working in that situation?” and “I wonder why the consciousness is doing that over there, through those people?” Perhaps you might like to ask these kinds of questions also!
Mindfulness ~ Since sharing my post “Bells of Mindfulness,” I have been noticing that Bells of Mindfulness Abound! There is no shortage of small irritations to teach me to cultivate the qualities of Lord Shiva: Calm and UN-Attached!! Can you relate?
Aspiration ~ Recently I finished watching a video of a dharma talk (“Wake Up Earth: Engaged Action & Aspiration”) with Sister True Dedication, a monastic disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh, who ordained as a nun at Plum Village in 2008. Towards the end of her talk she explained why we have to have Aspiration, saying that Aspiration gives us energy that can help us through difficult times. She said that we have to figure out how we will help others and what our contribution will be… That really struck a deep place in me, because during the last two months I have been dealing with a Fibromyalgia flare-up that stopped me in my happy tracks, and I have had to work hard to accept that my plans fell apart. Now I need to dig deep to find what my contribution will be, given the limitations of my body.
What is your Aspiration in life? What will your contribution be?
Do you have any keywords for October?

Swami Muktananda (spiritual teacher in India, 1908-1982) wrote in his book Does Death Really Exist?:
“It does not come early and it does not come late. The moment of departure is set at the time of birth, and it does not change by even a minute. Death is the one thing in this world that is always on time.”
That resonates with me as truth, and yet it brings up continuous questions. What about situations in which it seems like a person was saved from death by something that happened? For example, what if someone was all ready to commit suicide but then they just “happened” to read my blog article “It Is Your Duty To Live” and they changed their mind and did not commit suicide.
In that instance, was it a miracle that saved them from dying, or was it already pre-determined that they would read that article since it was not yet their set time to die? What do you think?
Are you comfortable thinking about death? Do you feel at peace, knowing that you will die at the right time? Did you know that meditating on death can help you to happy up your life? Contemplating death is a spiritual practice that can help you to live more fully in the present moment.

The Amethyst Biomat is a revolutionary healing pad that contains channels of amethyst quartz crystals across its entire surface. When you lie on the Biomat, those amethyst channels heat up and transfer far infrared rays and negative ions into your body. It is an amazing experience that you will want to have again and again. It is like having your own home sauna in a mat!
The Amethyst Crystal Biomat comes in a regular full-size and also in a mini size. The mini biomat is ideal for putting in an office chair, so you receive healing treatments while you do your work! You can also use the mini biomat in a car, using an inverter.

The Amethyst Biomat. (Please tell him Teja sent you.)
Yes, it is a spendy investment, but you will not regret it. You will be so grateful every time you lie down on your Amethyst Biomat!
When I lie on my Amethyst Biomat, I enhance the healing experience with visualizations and prayers. Here is an example of what I say:
“I am receiving healing energies from the amethyst crystal beings. And I am asking Lord Shiva to send StarFire Violet Fire Radiant Healing Energies into me now to supercharge the healing energies that I am receiving from the amethyst crystals. All of those healing energies are moving through all of my cells, burning away what’s no longer needed; clearing out any negativities and dis-eases; and cleansing and purifying all of my cells. And those healing energies are energizing and elevating every single cell in my body and in my brain. I am receiving the healing energies from the Amethyst Biomat with deep gratitude.”
May you also get to experience the amazing Amethyst Biomat!
Sending StarFire Radiant Healing Energies to All Beings, throughout all time and space!
