Dharma

Dharma. … In Hinduism, dharma signifies behaviors that are considered to be in accord with Ṛta, the order that makes life and universe possible, and includes duties, rights, laws, conduct, virtues and “right way of living”. In Buddhism, dharma means “cosmic law and order”, and is also applied to the teachings of Buddha.”

⊗The Wheel⊗

The “Wheel” as a symbol of the continuous movement of infinite energy and flow throughout the Universe, ourselves, the Earth ~ all of creation. The wheel of our individual lives, collective lives, and Universal Oneness.

A Prayer Wheel

A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel (Tibetan: འཁོར་ལོ།, Wylie: khor lo) on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, a mantra is written in Newari language of Nepal, on the outside of the wheel.

According to the lineage texts on prayer wheels, prayer wheels are used to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma). In Buddhism, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have created a variety of skillful means (upaya) to help bring practitioners ever closer to realizing enlightenment.

The Meaning of the Dharma Wheel

The Dharma Wheel

 

 

“Similar to the wheel of a cart that keeps revolving, it symbolizes the Buddha’s teaching as it continues to be spread widely and endlessly. The eight spokes of the wheel represent the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism, the most important Way of Practice.”

“The Eightfold Path consists of eight practices:

⇒right view

⇒right resolve

⇒right speech

⇒right conduct

⇒right livelihood

⇒right effort

⇒right mindfulness

and ⇒right samadhi (‘meditative absorption or union’). … The Noble Eightfold Path is one of the principal teachings of Theravada Buddhism, taught to lead to Arhatship.”

Wheel in the Sky

Ezekiel saw the wheel
“Ezekiel saw the wheel; Way up in the middle of the air. Now Ezekiel saw the wheel in a wheel; Way in the middle of the air.”

 

“The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship was the color of beryl, and the four of them had the same likeness. And their appearance and their workmanship was like a wheel inside of a wheel . . .

And I looked, and behold, the four wheels were beside the cherubim . . . And their appearance was as one, the four of them, as if the wheel were in the midst of the wheel (Ezekiel 1:16, 10:9 – 10, HBFV)”

 

The Vision of Ezekiel Bury Bible, c. 1135

Ezekiel and the Wheel symbolism

 

Ezekiel’s vision of the four wheels dramatically illustrates the omnipresence and omniscience of God. These wheels were associated with the “four living creatures” (Ezekiel 1:4), who were later described (Ezekiel 10:5, 20) as cherubim, angelic beings appointed as guardians of the holiness of God.

Each wheel was actually two in one, with one apparently set inside the other at right angles which enabled the “living creatures” to move in any direction instantly without having to turn, like a flash of lightning. These wheels had the appearance of chrysolite, which may have been a topaz or other semiprecious stone. The outer rim of the wheels was described as high and awesome with the outer edge of the rims inset with “eyes” (Ezekiel 1:14-18).

The Spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels (Ezekiel 1:20-21). As a result, the creatures were able to move any direction the wheels moved. Most biblical scholars hold to the idea that the Spirit of God gave direction to the wheels through direct knowledge of and access to the will of God. The mobility of the wheels suggests the omnipresence of God; the eyes, His omniscience; and the elevated position, His omnipotence.

This vision appeared to Ezekiel as a powerful imagery of movement and action demonstrating the characteristics of God’s divine nature. It presented God as being on a chariot-like throne, His glory both supreme and immanent, existing in and extending into all the created universe. As such, the whole revelation by God in this vision to Ezekiel, i.e., the cherubim, the chariot, the Spirit, and the wheels, emphasized their unity and coordination.

As terrifying as this vision was, it vividly displayed the majesty and glory of God (Ezekiel 1:28), who came to Ezekiel and the children of Israel in the midst of their Babylonian exile. It reminded them of His holiness and power as the Lord of all creation. The message was clear: though His people were in exile and their nation was about to be destroyed, God was still on the throne and able to handle every situation. The lesson for us today is that, through His marvelous providence, God moves in the affairs of all nations to work out His own unseen plan, always at work, intricately designed, never wrong, and never late (Romans 8:28).

Their deep faith saw them through the trials of slavery and then a century of Jim Crow repression. Finally, it emboldened them to leave the sanctuary of their churches and join the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in a quest, his “dream,” for their full freedom and equality.

Just when and how their ancestors broke with traditional African spirit practices and adopted Christianity has never been fully resolved. Now archaeologists in Maryland have announced the discovery of an intact set of objects that they interpret as religious symbols — traditional ones from Africa, mixed with what they believe to be a biblical image: a representation of Ezekiel’s Wheel.

No one had found this combination of religious artifacts before, said Mark P. Leone, a University of Maryland archaeologist who led the discovery team. “Christianity had not erased traditional African spirit practices,” he concluded. ”It had merged with them to form a potent blend that still thrives today.”

→Praying for others, the Earth, the animals ~ for all 

Praying for ourselves↵

≤Have you ever had someone pray for you? How blessed is that. It is so exhilarating and uplifting to know someone has taken sacred moments to uplift prayer requests on your behalf to the Divine. What a beautiful act of kindness and such a thoughtful measure

〈〉Thank you Lady of the Prayer Ray for continuously praying for us, our planet, our world〈〉

Prayer is an important part of our daily (or as much as possible) ritual, and evolution to bring ourselves to the tabernacle of the Holy. Prayer is one avenue to increase our connection to the Divine as well as our own Divinity. It is a beautiful way to honor and empower ourselves by expressing our pure voice in loving measure as well as learning more of who we are. We also create a cosmic lifeline of sorts and further open the doorway to the living blessedness of God.

♥Let us engage in prayer ~ from a earnest heart♥

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

I have crafted here a prayer specifically for you. It is my hope it brings much restoration, healing, Grace, Love, and Light to you.

⊕⊕⊕⊕⊕

The inspiration for this prayer and imagery is to highlight the value and power of prayer and to  also refresh ourselves with the Universal Oneness we all come from, are connected to, and will return to.

The absoluteness and universality we are all waking up to ~ to live this reality in our daily lives while having this Earth experience.

 Our Ascesnion ⇑ ⇓ A one on one encounter with our divine nature that spills out so that all we are acquainted with is this divine experience of who we are .

The Godship is recognized not only in Self (this positioning first) but in the beautiful trees, in one another, animals, rocks, etc…permeating the air, physical structures, nature ~ all of creation. All places and spaces imbued with a holy reverence ~ all life suffused with this sanctified perspective and direct experience.

The enshrined cord of magical weave within us, around us, through us, and through out all of creation connects us to the Universal Wholeness.

℘The enduring ~ timeless ~ imperishable omnitude  we are the sum total of℘

This post is centered on standing in prayerful Love

Love of Self ~ humanity ~ the Earth ~ and all Her creation

Being a es·prit de corps (French for “spirit of the body” ~ meaning fellowship ~ a common loyalty shared) === recognizing the Truth of Spirit within and without.

≈Here to raise the flag of the Aquarian Age≈

To diligently continue (through self dedication, focus, inner sighting, and clearing) to manifest through conscious living God qualities and God virtues.

Aspiring to endless evolutionary heights ===  so that collectively we may fully stand and be a beacon of consecrated Light ~ ” of bread and wine”  ~ to be as and to represent the New Earth characteristics of 5D, universal unconditional love, and higher states of consciousness ~ further establishing ourselves in and as pure Creator Love and Light ~ fulfilling our divine purpose on Earth.

Integrated Wholeness with Source = Unconditional Love, Joy, Peace, Freedom, Abundance, Compassion, Wisdom

⇔⇔⇔⇔⇔

Let us summon Great Prayerful Light: into our lives, our bodies, our spirited endeavors, the Earth ~ upon all those we interact with ~ our loved ones, community (both location based as well as internet community) ~ anyone who comes across our path whether for a fleeting moment or  walk our journey with us.

Prayer is a vehicle for self ~ care

Although it is wonderful to gift ourselves with what we resonate with that requires a monetary exchange, we often overlook the many free things we can also gift ourselves with. Especially that which is readily available in any given moment.

I created a post on this to serve as a reminder of what is always present as an option that can be a blessing to us on our Ascension ride ~ entitled “Ascension Tickets”
