"Four Understandings"
or "Questions for Working Together" - cp, 1/17/14

        Common myths, quips, and prejudices aside: Karma, actually, is neither good nor bad. It is about learning what is needed to be learned in life - at the appropriate juncture for that learning. One might say that conflict and resistance to learning is what humans naturally experience -as much as anything else. Given that, someone's subjective response to Karma (or to it's response to us) may be to say it is "bad." While someone else may say it is "good." And yet, Karma is just. Whereas, for one very rough example, a prison sentence, if not wisely administered, might only teach the criminal how to further obstruct the maturation of himself and others, thus adding to the karmic burden of the administrators.
        In essence, to the degree that we learn to cooperate with the wisdom of the universe, to that degree we all work together. What makes [the realities of karma] most difficult to understand, I think, is the lag-time of karmic dynamics, if you will, and our desire for instant gratification, whether that be about gifts from grandma or about political justice. The lag-time is often due to how complex humanity has made things - due to our our sowing and reaping over time. That is, over many lifetimes, in some cases hundreds of them - while inheriting (in such examples as centuries-old animosities between nations), mounting feelings of jealousy and revenge, as well as institutionalized comparisons of worthiness for God's love, etc. The question then may be, "How to get off the cycle?" And such as led to the questions being offered here.

Four Understandings, or Karma Q's, Chris Pringer, 1'14

 

"Questions for World Change"
[Added 12'11, Removed 11'13, Returned 4'14]

          By considering (the law of) karma in the context of the above and below invocations, whether or not we believe so much in the universal/ cosmological implications as taught by various eastern faiths (including multiple lifetimes), we may update the average westerner's understanding of karma - from that of simply the "carrot and stick" of the easterner's universe. And may do so in the light of it's higher purpose: learning the highest forms of Love & Compassion in accordance with the Highest Loving Will of the Highest Loving Power, via facilitating an understanding of the Divine Parent/Child relationship, in effect for as many lifetimes as it takes for us to learn what we need to learn about that, and all that implies.*

          We may contrast this with the more immediate gratification-granting concepts of "heaven" & "hell", or "an avenging God". And thereby gain deeper understanding of Mankind's purpose, individually as well as collectively. And do so in the larger context of karma, as God's instruction to Humanity as children, to effect that all things find balance "in the end". Hence the question of whether "we are ready" to re-evaluate culture, history, political direction in the light of this perspective on karma, to unite in our determination to set and accomplish realistic goals -considering the above- towards healing mankind and the planet. [excerpted from "On Learning Fairness, Truth, & Peace" at the "Evolution Trends" page, which also includes some new ref-links for year 2012.]

          To those who work for change
, via prayer or otherwise, and in light of year 2012 being here and now, I want to express my appreciation. Thank you also for considering, if you would, these questions and thoughts as relevent to the process of healing and evolution of humanity. After checking out the piece directly below, you might also like the "Invocation for Vision for World Healing" further below. And in that light...

Focusing Love & "Prayers for Transforming Nuclear Radiation"
[two prayers, 4/6/11, improved 4/10 ]

          "Dr Masaru Emoto, the premiere Japanese scientist and water researcher, is asking all citizens of Mother Earth to focus with intent to transform the dangerous nuclear problem that is continuing to develop in Japan. High amounts of radiation has contaminated large amounts of water at one of the power plants and is starting to get into the environment." - Dr Emoto's message at Emoto Peace Project. This request led me to put together two graphic prayers, one in the words of Dr. Emoto, the other in the invocation format often used here.
          Dr. Emoto is the author of "The Hidden Messages in Water" which documents his research showing that focusing attitudes, most notably, that of Love, made incredible differences in the shape and structure of water and snowflake molecules. He inspired the "Water-Charging -Group-Fired- Healing Technique" (by yours truly), which is about group-directed healing towards an individual's cells, and is described in "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer".
          [Note: I believe similar activities in focus (ie: of love and appreciation) may be applied for improving the process/ performance of most any element or biological component or system, not to mention air quality. cp, 1-12-12]
            Dr. Emoto's approach here (with radiated water) honors the healing relationships that we can build (or build upon) between our environment, our bodies, and our minds. Feel free, of course, to add in healing intention for other areas in the world effected by nuclear radiation.

       The Background graphic "Ceiling Light" (or "Cell Vortex Torq & Blu Star DOctagon A2 wStrDOct APi Chalice wSSD2Bk-A2, close section Crop") is actually the deep (zoomed in) background of "ChaliCell Torq and Blue Vortex FOL Octagon" by Chris Pringer Aug 2009, featuring "Chalicells" and Flower of Life. Higher quality versions (of the prayer) are available for download: Dr. Emoto Prayer version, Lrg and Invocation version, Lrg [right-click, select "save as"]
       "Chali-Cells": Even in the matrix of our cells, the sacred-geometry proportions actually facilitate (ionic) polarities [positive/ negative or yin/ yang] for bio-magnetic interactions and energy exchanges at atomic/ molecular levels - in this "cell matrix chalice." And these "chali-cells," at that atomic level, operate like tiny but ever-powerful nuclear generators, yet with all of a living cell's frequencies/ colors (Rainbow), given all the energy, including all the loving understanding that's been channelled into this "chalice dynamic."

The "ChaliCells" description at left is an understanding of one reality, and it is also an affirmation. We could add "how might I be increasing in the understanding that this is true, and increasingly true in manifested reality each day?"
       "Gell-Light Chakra!": how many thousands of rods and cones receive light through themselves - tubes, light modulators, "light-trains transfer systems", and do their individual processing and channelling - through to the brain, and the mental integrative "light management system". Are they merely receptive of light, or do they also tranmit some kind of light from the brain or mind, a light which channells through our gell-light chakras - and out to that which we focus on, or at least to those interractors capable of doing the same? Well of course, and this is just a way of honoring those parts of us with a "positive light" - and so we command our cells, "Gell-Light Chakra!" :-)

"Invocation for True Egyptian Representation"
[ 2/10/11 ]

        We are watching a GREAT MOMENT in history - For Democracy in All the World leading up to year 2012, of course. Such COURAGE by the people of Egypt! And Thank YOU, People of Tunisia, and all others in the Great Synchronicity of the Present! I hurry to put this prayer here, and for this introduction, I only wish I could say something close to what these people truly deserve. For now, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You Are Representing, Serving and certainly Inspiring the People of Entire Planet!
        NOTE: It should probably noted here that, esoterically speaking, a moment may be likened to an era. Transitions in culture have always taken time, particularly for cultures as strongly tradition-based as these in the Middle-East. [Dec'14]

"Invocation for True Representation of Middle-Eastern Peoples"
( Version 4,   2/14/11, Rev'd 2/16/11, 2/21/11, 11/16/11 )

            This is virtually the same prayer as for the for Egyptian peoples (see above), with exception of wording appropriate to cover the many peoples of the Middle East that have been working for change toward more democratic rule. The prayer below includes the flags representing Syria, Yemen, Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Lybia, Jordan, Iran, Lebanon, Kurdistan, Barain & Algeria (in that order, left to right and down, with Bahrain & Algeria over center, high & low, all ordered as much by capacity for each flag's recognition as by any other aspect).
          Note: About the violence used for change: I have been taught, and still believe, that violence is not *the way* to unite cultures, and my site offers and/or well represents a multitude of solutions based in peace, justice, love, and healing. However, I recognise that esoteric views may differ as to the "Highest Loving Will of God", particularly with regard to consideration of the history of human evolution, and what is inevitable or un-necessary for certain aspects of our growth in the long term. That is, IMHO, Life is ALL about LEARNING, and while humanity has learned *the hard way* as often as not, we can pray for progress in that as well. Hence the prayers, "Four Understandings" and "Questions for World Change" (also on this page) are about LONG-term learning, preventative maintenance in the personal and socio-political community realms as parts of working in the "spiritual" realm. [rev.3'15]
        This is Version 4 (11/16/11) The previous versions since the 1st having the flags updated, were based on events as they transpired. For this version, I at first replaced the Barainian flag with Syria's, then realized I could still effectively render the chart with 12 suitably sized flags (vs 10), placing two over the center line, one high, one low. Kurdistan is included as it still fights to retain it's flag & establish it's national status. It is acknowledged here that the Palestinians have suffered long and hard, as have the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Turkmenistan, all working in their own varied ways to find leadership that meets their highest needs. We don't hear much yet, at least in the Western news media, of any citizen struggle in Saudi Arabia, Oman, or Arab Emirates.
        NOTE: It should probably noted here that, esoterically speaking, a moment may be likened to an era. Transitions in culture have always taken time, particularly for cultures as strongly tradition-based as these in the Middle-East. [Dec'14]

"Invocation for Accurate Representation
and Truthful Media"

       There are now two invocations/prayers for the media
and "Accurate Representation" -- Marking IT*S*Word* --
Sword of Truth making its mark out of the hash?
-- a symbol for a symbol -- the only two symbols not to clash? --
Clarity of name and image be considered so rash?
'Tho' making them treasures to knash or bash,
with values appearing to dash - for power and cash?
But these two prayers need not mish nor mash.
Sword of Truth lashes a path through fire and ash!
This prayer, first seen in a more personal stash or three,
now invoking timely perspicasity? And further below one from 2003. Oh, through which window our sword's sash to see? smile -cp, 12/8/10

Is that Lancelot? Or YOU with your shining armor, lance, and cloak of truth?" ?


What's WRONG with this picture?
(And, yes, what's also right with it?)

What about how we (most folks) relate to the archetype of Knighthood? And how many people (not just guys) relate that archetype (consciously or unconsciously) to their self-image as related to military service? (And what about that armor, shining or not? Rolfers and Integrative Bodywork practitioners might have an answer for you, by the way smile with far, far-reaching psychological implications, however.) Granted, I could think of far far worse archetypes for someone bent on going to war - ie: those unassociated with such attributes as chivalry. And what does the "Holy Grail" represent? (more about "balance" than extremism perhaps?). There is a also a story about how a former Marine (guess who Wink ) who came to a have different perspective on this. BIG HINT about that archetype being associated to military service: What if I said Spiritual battles were meant to be fought within? And that the grail legend was / is about recovering balance (and recovering from EXTREMISM) as as essential part of that? (at least eventually through our evolution as humans). [Hence the chalice art at this site, whether for "spiritual" purposes or not.]

Questions for World Healing Citizen's Action Prayer


To TOP  of PAGE

 

"Invocation for Vision for World Healing" (5/19/07)

          I know, up to this point in time much that is affirmed here has NOT been happening as needed, AND THAT is what affirmations/invocations are created for - and they are put in *present tense* for optimal effect. Whereas notice that *past tense* was just used to refer to the *challenges.*  In any case, William Tiller, Ph.D. calls it "like pumping iron" - referring to the *practice,* the building of the muscles of affirmation and vision for fine-hewning the art and science of creating what you want. There are many other inspiring caches of wisdom in "What the Bleep - Down the Rabbit Hole." But this one got me to finally create an invocation that is almost totally about affirming our highest potentials, and our current capacities to develop them. And especially one (invocation or prayer) that I felt could be most applied to the evolvement of citizens and governments - not just for ensuring we sustain the planet's basic livability, but also it's and our enjoyability. I know, the list seems daunting at first, but remember, the first step is just to SEE it.            It ALL happens by increments and thresholds attained over time. "All" here includes increasingly clearer understandings of individual parts. Besides, Tiller, Ph.D., one of my main guys for backup for the "yes, we can" part of it, is the editor of 2 scientific journals, publisher of more than 250 scientific papers and three technical books, and has five patents issued. And he is only one of a number of well established scientists who are telling us that such practice will make a difference - if we individually apply the science. John Hagelin, Ph.D., also of 'Bleep,' researches and teaches more about "educational programs that develop human consciousness, and [that] through policies and programs that effectively harness the laws of nature, it is possible to solve acute social problems and enhance governmental effectiveness." There's more about 'Bleep science' in a section of it's own below ("ON SCIENCE & CONSCIOUSNESS"). [Intro Ed. May'15].
          But Ok, on with the application...

Questions for World Healing Citizen's Action Prayer

To TOP  of PAGE

 

"Beliefs in Potential <=> Transition" (12/11/08)

      This is about you & I, all who were a part of the increase in citizen awareness and action in 2008. About our power to accomplish what we set out to. WE rose up, worked the system, but then became who we've been waiting for to get the work done: by continuing to tell our representatives what they need to do, and go directly to the market place and vote with our feet, our voices, and our dollars. It's not as efficient to do it all over again as it is to maintain the momentum, the creativity, the readiness to move when/where/as needed. In some spiritual traditions a chant or mantra is used to get into the state of consciousness one seeks.
      But after one "arrives" at that state, the chant or mantra is dropped, and the state wherein things are realized and/or accomplished is employed for just that. Do you see the analogy here? (Related: "Worth ...Who gets to say..." just below.)

      Text around the frame: "...we approach the world's problems politically and spiritually, internally and externally, and ... the Eagle recedes, the Dove proceeds, as the Owl see's through the darkness... OUR relationship with our Earth Mother clarifies as we realize our own interconnectedness..."

      This mandala (or visual prayer) might also be called "All Beliefs in Transition," and is about believing in our capacities to see and make the best of opportunities now and into our future - no matter the degree to which President Obama leads us and inspires us into such an era (or not). The elements depicted represent (parts in) ALL of US, and not just Barrack Obama or any other (human or divine) personage. Information for the "Happy New Year & New Era" greeting card (with this mandala on the cover) is a little further below.

'Beliefs in Potential & Transition', 12'08 Chris Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com
 

Symbology:
      The Eagle has dropped most of his arrows, & looks to his right where the talon holds the olive branch. O'Kelly McCluskey inspired the design of these two elements during the logo design process for vUSPA.Org (virtual US Peace Academy). The Eagle is also faded, while the Dove flies into the light and radiates Light. The 'all-seeing' Owl is manteled or yoked with a vortex of violet light to clarify & maintain the intention of spiritual transformation. The actual arrangement of the creed logos was done for the purpose of circling them as closely together as possible.

The above mandala comes from the page/section, "The Momentum -
Notes on Hope, Balance, & Opportunity - and Challenges to Faith in Our Potential for Our Transition" (11'08)

St. Anthony Prayer for Finding Connectedness and Healing

     St. Anthony is well known for helping us find things we've lost or forgotten. And so much about healing is remembering and reconnecting. This prayer is very much about healing of many things. And reconnecting with who we most truly are, or at least can be, and the finer attributes and qualities that go along with that. Some would call it the Higher Self or Christ Self, while others would call it that state where we resonate best with the Higher Power. In any case, I hope St. Anthony ("St. Tony" to some) would appreciate a higher calling than finding lost car keys now and then, and perhaps enjoy helping us with the requests in the below prayer as well. If you are able to zoom in on this prayersheet, you'll be able see cell-like detail in the deeper background - for helping to visualize healing at the cellular level.       A printable PDF version of the "St.Tony Prayer" is included in the PDF for "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer -- Practical considerations and a little science to boot" (5.9 MB; to download, just right-click and select "save-as").
      The web page, "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" or "Bridging Prayer & Science", doesn't include the St.Tony Prayer, but both the pdf version and the web page includes these articles on prayer and related healing work: "Focusing Love-Organized Healing Waters", Water-Charging: (incl. a section for the Neuro-Endocrine System) based on some very inspiring scientific findings by Masaru Emoto; "Cells & Change: How I Believe What I See..." which gets into another realm of scientific backup; and "More Than Prayer", which is about prayer as a means of organizing priorities(!), sobering realism, as well as faith, into an integrated focus - in service. Also there is "'Getting Super': Sample Personalized Visualization Prayer Chart" [New Apr 2011]. -- Blessings and Thanks, especially to St. Anthony! -cp, 8/9/09

Further below you'll also find Tips for working with charts and focus (by the "Connecting Resources for Accomplishment via Prayer" (7'06)
          In this version I also wanted to take into consideration certain characteristics of those elected officials actually piecing together the parts of the to-be-working economy, calling for them to be ideally focused. As in the previous version, I retained some emphesis on the element of gratitude. And in recognition of our impatience with the current state of affairs, I added some emphesis for "rapid facilitation and flow of energy" as well as focus for "Community Empowerment Strategies, ...Sustainability, and ...a Healthy state of Employment", etc. ["Representation" line & Background rev'd 1/22/11]
          The question remains: is it material or is it the ethical enhancement we are calling for? A refocusing on the transformation of more permanent aspects within individuals most involved? Or most effected? One restatement of the economic situation to be healed, IMO: "Work needs to be done in/for the continued provision and distribution of products and services. Plentiful resources ARE (already) available for all needs to be met and for all work that needs be done.
          Hence: appropriate *re-distribution* of resources would be one of the primary goals to be accomplished, w/o delay and w/o undue concern for profit". Nonetheless, Please feel free to focus with your own specific intent as you feel so directed.
    Blessings and Thanks, -cp, 10/13/08, 1/20/11, rev'd 1/22/11
Worth

Who gets to say
» how much everything is worth ?
» who gets to spend a dollar
as if every penny counted ?

Who that IS,
to the degree we realize it,
is more powerful than the economic elite,
the political elite, and the religious elite -
in saying how much anything,
not to mention how much EveryONE,
is worth!?

WHO gets to say?

How about the one Who gets to vote
» by what they buy ?
» by what activities they engage in ?
» by whom they invite to be a friend ?
» and by what thoughts they think ?
Especially if they do that consciously ?

Resource Access Prayer Chart for Economy & Accountable Government


Tips for Charts:
A chart is not "an automatic." It requires just a little bit of step by step process before it "flows"

a) grasp the nature of the individual components

b) take note of the arrangement(s)

c) get a feel for the connections and flow paths, focusing in & focusing out as needed

d) try to get a feel for how the elements connect with each other in "the real world"

e) derive thoughtforms about how these elements work in the situation

f) project/see your thoughtforms upon the situation AS you...

g) Ask for or Invoke Gods Highest Loving Will to qualify the application of your thoughtforms in accordance with that Highest Loving Will.

"Connecting Resources for Accomplishment via Prayer" (7/13/06)
(The original (by hand) resource access prayer flow-chart; later digital versions directly above)

The below prayer chart is a kind of sketch - kind of like a flash card, or a reminder of key focus points, all arranged in a kind of more-or-less logical flow chart. Designed for visual 'connect-the-dot' optimization for "Calling In" all levels of assistance. It's the initial rough drawing for the above versions, although I've made various others of this type of (affirmation/ invocation/ prayer) flow-chart since early 90's, but friends liked this one as is, so here you go.

   Tips For Working With Charts
in general and with "Prayer Charts":

          In case you didn't know, a chart is not "an automatic" - you're not supposed to *get* charts (of the multi-concept variety that can condense a lot of information) all at once in the first glance - unless you're a genius of some sort, or extremely intuitive, or both. For the rest of us, It requires just a little bit of step by step process before it "flows": first, you grasp the nature of the individual components, then you take note of the arrangement(s), getting a feel for the connections and flow paths, focusing in, focusing out, as needed. Once whole sections of the chart start making sense with other, then it will begin to "flow". Then even complex relationships may become clear.
          As you begin working with a "prayer chart" -as a vehicle for focusing your prayer- You may occasionally find yourself getting glimpses and/or a feel of how those elements (diagrammed in the chart) connect with each other in "the real world". Then derive thoughtforms about how these elements work in the situation, project/see your thoughtforms upon the situation AS you ask for or Invoke Gods Highest Loving Will to qualify the application of your thoughtforms in accordance with that Highest Loving Will.
          For me, at least, creating and using such charts are a lot more interesting than a crossword puzzle. I often will alternate my focus between one of the upper sets of lists or phrases, then read "Accomplished," emphasizing it in my mind as an affirmation. Which is one of the key elements of each of the prayers on this page, of course. Then I might go for two or three of the upper sets before that emphasis. And on different days, other things stand out for emphasis. Definitely a play-by-ear thing for me (-oh wait, or is it play by eye? ;-).

Middle East / Iraq Healing Prayer with Archangel Michael
On Sacred Geometry Background

         The graphic of Archangel Michael was borrowed from a a published photo of the stained glass work of the great Mr. Louis Comfort Tiffany, with some modification by myself (for size, 3D effects, transparency, slight re-coloration, and the map of Iraq overlay) before it was layered over the sacred-geometry graphic. [4'04]   Note: About the violence used for change: I have been taught, and still believe, that violence is not *the way* to unite cultures, and my site offers and/or well represents a multitude of solutions based in peace, justice, love, and healing. However, I recognise that esoteric views may differ as to the "Highest Loving Will of God", particularly with regard to consideration of the history of human evolution, and what is inevitable or un-necessary for certain aspects of our growth in the long term. That is, IMHO, Life is ALL about LEARNING, and while humanity has learned *the hard way* as often as not, we can pray for progress in that as well. Hence the prayers, "Four Understandings" and "Questions for World Change" (also on this page) are about LONG-term learning, preventative maintenance in the personal and socio-political community realms as parts of working in the "spiritual" realm.

"A Global Climate Healing Fantasy -- and The SPIRIT of It ALL"
On Sacred Earth Background April 2015 rev. of original (Dec'07, Jan'08)

      This prayer is a kind of *story* about creating a potential sustainable future for our planet and all Life. It comes from a perspective borne, perhaps, from the playful creativity of the angels, nature spirits, as well as from the perseverance of Spirit in Humanity. It is designed to engender an affirmative visualization, by way of logical solution path concepts, albeit via a dramatic yet enjoyable story, thus, or at least hopefully, creating an effective prayer by focused visual affirmation. Once the reader gets a "working idea" of how his/her goals might be accomplished, then motivation and plans for his/her own role in that can, over time, be created, continually enhanced and built upon. Note: This author acknowledges that far better stories or visual affirmations (than this prayer at first may engender) might be created by the reader and acted upon - and indeed may already have been.         As in earlier versions, there is use of the Flower & Tree of Life archetypes. Obviously, this *story* format is a very different style than the more chart-based prayers (ie: "Connecting Resources for Accomplishment via Prayer"), or invocational prayers (ie: "Invocation of Solutions for World Healing" prayer), and thought this form might be more enjoyable for many.
      Related: More on Global Changes & Earthquakes, Related Meditations including focus on the earth "vortex/chakra points." (further below on this page)
      Editor's Note: This version is very close to that edited, with much appreciated assistance of Melanie J. Cohen, for reading in the Sunday service (4/19/15) at Saltwater Unitarian Universalist Church service. And which still includes the upper-cased words and asterisks that were used for managing emphasis in verbal presentation. A Text-Only version is here as needed

The Great Invocation [Djwal Kul, 1935~]
on a Sacred Geometry Background

     The Great Invocation was given to the world via Alice Bailey, by the Master Djwal Kul in 1935-45, and via "the combined Ashrams of the Masters and by the entire Hierarchy... It will serve to integrate the two great centers: the Hierarchy and Humanity, and to relate them both in a new and dynamic manner to the center where the Will of God is known." (-Alice Bailey in *The Rays and the Initiations*).

      The addition of a 'new symbol,' (provided Spring 2003 for meditators worldwide by Meditation Groups, Inc.), seemed a timely incentive to create a geo-backed format for this prayer. The actual 'new symbol' has been blended into the other graphics in this pic; previous backgrounds [2/18/03), newly replaced 5/19/07, render-tweaked 6'14]

     If I would add anything [4/30/12], for when/if in doubt about God, His Will, or Purpose(s), it might be:
     "For the Love of All, that All May Love"
     and/or "Make Love Your God, So God May Be Love"
     and/or "God Is Love, Love's Will is Power to See, Create, & Live the Way,
      Love's Will is Done for All This Day"

Notes



Sacred Geometry Background Format:

     For Text Versions: Please feel free to write me via chaliser@iinet.com and ask for text version (w/o background). Please include the name of the prayer(s) as introduced on the page. Please also feel free to visit the Web Site Feedback & Support System Page.

     All of the prayers on this page are placed on a particular kind of graphic format, although each has a different style. The Broad Spectrum World Healing Prayer is the oldest, with the wording pretty much developed in Nov of 2001, the geometrics assembled over the years previous to that, but with a new coloring mandala just recently added for the deeper background. There's actually an ancient science behind how such prayers or invocations "work," although the actual use of such graphic formats for this is only about 60 years old. (So far as we know for sure anyway -- a likely exception to this might be the Tibetan, Navaho, and Hopi Shamans' use of sand paintings. There are many other striking similarities among those three cultures, by the way.)
     Sacred geometry aside, I also believe strongly that the effectiveness of any prayer can be increased (perhaps multiplicatively), depending on how many people (and to what degree) invest energy/intent/faith into the activation of, and maintenance of personal acknowledgement of, a prayer. On the other hand, my intuition would have me not not surprised if the geometric aspect of the prayer enhanced the multiplicative effect - due to the matrix that is visually perceivable in such geometries, and thereby provided a "carrier" effect, which would also be projected along with the verbal and/or conceptual meanings.
     And this is aside from the symbols inherent in such geometries, which also serve as carriers of meaning or purpose. The symbols arising from Sacred Geometry are relatively "pure form;" that is honoring of the most basic divine principles, particularly that of balance and wholeness of being. Is what I love about the chalice - it's not just a cup, not even "just" a "holy grail" - it represents so much more (and always has, IMO) than what the legend (or what's left of it) has implied, or even what any religion has ever said it was about. In reality, so much meaning and purpose can be derived from it when it is studied in depth.
     To me, it is the ideal ecumenical symbol with critical implications for the potential of human evolution. Essentially, the chalice is about the human embodiment of Spirit into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, and physical) which compose the "Body-Mind". Which is also serves in the balancing and integrating of Humanity with the Divine - individually and communally.) AND it's relationship to our (and all other) DNA - and the sacred geometry that connects the two (and all else) ...As Above, So Below! In other words, the basis of my artwork and my healing work is the same. I elaborate more on the symbols and meanings at the "Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences" page.


Notes on Text of Prayers

     The "Questions" prayer, made Jan 26 2003, was designed to be more easy to read (compared to the much longer "Broad Spectrum World Healing Prayer." It features an additional new concept besides that of the sacred geometry background: affirmative questions. The first three paragraphs of this prayer provide a kind of preamble to briefly explain the concept (just by context) and prepare the reader for the rest of the prayer. If that makes you more curious about how or why the questions actually work - in prayer, invocation or affirmation - you might enjoy "The Use Of Questions (and Gestalt approach) In Effective Affirmation Therapy - Theory and Examples for Practical Application".

     The wording of the "Broad Spectrum World Healing Prayer" was revised September 2002 (from January 2001) to be more effective. While not very poetic sounding, it's carried by a comprehensive, "leave no loopholes" approach, and might even remind one of a legal document. That is because it is designed for effectiveness -- while very carefully acknowledging of the power of how this type of prayer works. And because the axiom, "Be careful what you pray for, since you just might get it" very much applies here. The wording for the Media Healing Prayer came more recently, and carries a much less complex focus. There are fewer words so the text could be made larger, and so the reading of it should flow much more smoothly. The Archangel Michael Middle-East Prayer, which came along much later in April 2004, is even more simplified in wording.

Suggestions for Use:

      "Pre-read" each prayer enough that you can then meditate and contemplate the meaning of the prayer, getting an idea, perhaps a visual image, of what you and the Divine are going to do by/with it. But don't try to "lock that image in" too much, since trust of the Divine to know best is important, of course. Being open to further clarification - during the prayer itself - of what is needed to be prayed for, or what is needed to be asked about, is especially helpful for all concerned in the case of the first prayer, with the affirmative questions. I elaborate more on an interactive approach to prayer in "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" -- Blending science and prayer, application of science in, of, and for prayer, healing prayer techniques, visual prayer charts. Prayer as a means of organizing priorities(!) & developing focus, in/for service.

     You may also want to allow some non-focused gazing at the overall visual or graphic so as to just get a feeling from that, especially if that helps bring about a mode that serves your highest purpose here. Thus sufficiently prepared, read the prayer off the prayer sheet aloud, and tap it in the center with your right hand. One does all this in whatever way that enhances one's feeling of meaningful connection, for the purposes of a) calling the Divine's attention to the prayer, and b) then commissioning the Divine to attend to the implementation of that called for in the invocation. One repeats this as often as one feels it necessary to effectively activate and/or maintain the effectiveness of the prayer. Eg: let your Higher Self lead you in all the above, including changing any of it that feels right to do so. For the science behind the art, please see the section below, "ON SCIENCE & CONSCIOUSNESS, Added May'07"

     Tips For Working With Charts, in general and with "prayer charts", is included above by the "Connecting Prayer" Chart.


 
On The Use of Questions in Prayers and Invocations:

      As you may have read above, the best, or at least quickest, explanation for this approach is may be provided in the preamble of such prayers themselves. Also, this approach sets an attitude of openness to Divine response, to being led by Spirit, to inspiration. A sample preamble: "I acknowledge my Total Being (Body-Mind-Spirit-Higher Power) capacity to effectively, efficiently, and safely search for, find, & develop any & all answers & solutions that these questions ask for or imply. As I simply ask each question, one line at a time as a thought, feeling, and/or image, and letting the thought, feeling, or image go, with faith that the answers come. I acknowledge that the answers &/or solutions to these questions ...are manifesting with perfect timing for gestation and completion in this dimension of Time & Space "on Earth as it IS in Heaven."
     How and why these work is based in the approach of "Positive Response Question" (PRQ) type affirmations. As noted in the essay that goes into depth on the topic, these are designed in such a way that ones resources [whole being and Higher Power] can only respond by producing "positive" answers and solutions (or none at all) -- internally as well as externally (manifested into reality), as one allows time for ones resources to present the solutions in the form that such design, when it knows one is most ready to use them. On a personal use level, PRQ's provide a work-around what might be considered a disadvantage of affirmations, that of challenging any unconscious beliefs (old, discontinued, and/or resulting from inappropriate parental modeling, early life distructive experiences, etc) that counter the intention of the affirmation, that would attract situations wherein one is directly tested, as if one made a claim of worthiness contrary to such an unconscious belief. Elaboration (and many sample PRQ's) via "Effective Affirmation Therapy - The Use Of 'Positive Response Questions' (PRQ's) and Gestalt Approach"]

Tips for Downloading, Opening, and Printing Files


     The easiest way I've found for downloading a graphic is, when viewing in your browser, simply right-click on the graphic, click on "Save Picture as," give the pic a name if one isn't automatically suggested, and notice which folder you save it too (ie: "C:\My Documents"). Note: Most (non-tech) people will find most everything they've saved in the "My Documents" folder. Generally the file will be saved as "jpg" or "gif" or occasionally you will see "pdf" - when in doubt, choose "jpg."
     Did you know that you can also right-click on the links to files and pages and then click "save as..." to download a file? However, when saving web pages this way you don't get the pics on them, just the text. Otherwise, for Downloading, this makes things much easier than most other ways. AND if you want to print out this whole page as is, you will probably get the graphic files split out over two pages. Which is fine, but that way of doing it will likely also reduce the quality of print for the graphics. The notes below are mainly for printing out the graphic files individually.

[Site Navigation Note (didn't know where else to put this): For page links at most sites, You can right-click the link then click "open in new tab." However, I would not do that at this page because you'll just reload this whole page with all the large graphics. Better to after use your browser's back button to come back to the page section you last clicked to.]


Printing TIPS

     The notes below are mainly for printing out the graphic files individually. If you want to print out this whole page as is, you will probably get the graphic files split out over two pages. Which is fine, but that way of doing it will likely also reduce the quality of print for the graphics. I will make PDF versions as I receive requests for them - I will then put them at the site and add links by the individual prayers for opening or downloading them.

     Opening & Printing Downloaded Files from Windows explorer: [In General, For JPG's and other graphic files and when you are limited in graphic program skills. Note: this paragraph does NOT apply to PDF's.] Some people have their computer set up so that when you can double click on a graphic file(s) and it will be loaded into one of your graphic programs or into your browser where you can print it out from, usually via the "file" menu. Otherwise (at least in XP), I have found that when you double click on a graphic file it will bring the picture up in a view window. Click the printer icon at the bottom, and after clicking "next" a few times you'll get to the "Layout Selection" dialog box with a "Print Preview" thumbnail. From there it will print what you see there. In some cases, you may need to play with your printer setup settings. Ideally the settings will let you see a thumbnail of the file and adjust it's scale so the graphic fits the page before printing each file. Maintaining the original size will help greatly with the quality of print-out. The thing to watch for is maintaining the proportions, which is the height to width or "aspect ratio": when given the box to check, Do Maintain Aspect Ratio.
     For best results with colors and clarity for all these pics, use high quality (heavy Matte or photo, 36# or better) paper (the more detail, the better it "works" ?). It would be easiest to save the pictures as graphic files separate from the web page, and print them individually as graphic files (vrs trying to print out the web page). this is because the top picture is set in "portrait" orientation, and the other is set in Landscape orientation.
     For less wet prints; more clean and clear on very plain/low weight paper (for less ink use): I've found that by going into the print setup's "advanced" settings, I can adjust the Brightness to max and the various colors to minimum, and it won't soak even the cheapest paper. I can vary that (and the Contrast and Saturation settings) some for more/less ink use - the Brightness setting seems to have *by far* the most effect in that regard. No doubt each model of printer is different, but you might have some luck with that.

     Most prayers here print best as full letter page size in portrait orientation. Most are Hi-quality jpg's (converted from 1MB or more at about 250dpi to 96dpi, then compressed about 10%) to end up with a 200-400 KB file, roughly 8" wide by 10.5" high.
     For the wide, landscape-oriented prayer pictures (including the Broad Spectrum World Healing Prayer), you will get a better print-out in "Landscape" orientation. The size and page settings for these files on this page have been revised (reduced) for better appearance in your browser - the size is set to fit smaller monitors with their browsers. You may contact me (as noted below) For higher quality printouts, or jpg or pdf versions of these - making the text much easier to read while you enjoy the subtleties in background graphics.
     Printing trouble with JPGs - fuzzy edges or text, etc: Daz the trouble with jpgs especially if you don't size it on your page the exact same size it was made, and that's why pdfs are much better for printing. Pdf's make it easy for non-techies to print although they also take a bit more energy for the graphic designer to output, and for you to download. An even better way to make the flyer viewer think we are amateurs putting on a cheap show is to print flyers from thumbnails:
     Printing trouble with Thumbnails: They aren't meant to be printed any other size than what they are. So if you do, it just stretches them out and you get a lot of pixilation (pixels spread too far apart), resulting in a very very poor quality of picture.

     PDF Printing Notes: On your own printer you can print color PDF's as greyscale or color: If you go greyscale, you're more likely to get a better greyscale print from a color-outputted pdf than you would from a greyscale-outputted PDF. At least this is true when the blacks are blacker from a color-outputted PDF. FONT Changes: Sometimes the fonts don't print out correctly with PDFs because you don't have the font that was used. That can result in text being spread over other text or is too large/small, etc. And that shouldn't happen with these since (for projects that I do for public use) the fonts are either extremely common or converted to graphics.
     More Specifics with PDF (Adobe Reader) Prints: a) For the "Page Scaling" choosing "none" (which I recommend to try first) insures that BORDERS that are set to less than 1/2" will be maintained. Otherwise the default is "fit to printable area" - which seems to mean 1/2" whether your printer will handle smaller borders or not. I also recommend Check (yes) for "Auto Rotate and Center."
 
     "A Global Climate Healing Fantasy and the Spirit of It All" v3 - 2 page PDF for Print: PDFs for this prayer have been made for those whose printers WILL NOT do 22" prints: Download 4 mb 96dpi PDF or Download 32 mb 300dpi PDF [right-click, choose save as]. Both of these are hi-quality, but 300 dpi brings much more to quality paper prints. Both are sized to print on two pages, then to cut the top border off page 2, then tape/paste that onto bottom of page 1. Please see above "PDF Printing Notes."

"Synthesis" Shirts !!!


Some have claimed that wearing a "Synthesis" shirt cured that groundless state of begging for extreme circumstances, just so they could locate the center of the universe!!!
Wink
Ok, not really, but some did say
it just made them feel good to wear it!


You can always find out for yourself via the "Synthesis" Shirts from Chalice Productions - where you can have yourself centered between mandalas silkscreened on both sides of a shirt! smile

This was one of my first mandalas - but my only shirt (for sale Wink) - There are still a few hundred left - and with quantity discounts, you can make me a deal!

          I have been (returned to) studying up on some things, thanks to the makers of "What the Bleep Do We Know" (at WhatTheBleep.Com). And more recently (Jan '09) I am reminded of HeartMath.Org with their promotion of the "De-Stress Kit for the Changing Times." Some might say that both 'Bleep' and 'HeartMath' began with what I'll call "The Tao of Physics Clan" of Fritjof Capra (of the 70's-80's era of published studies & thought) as well as "the Bleep Clan" of Fred Alan Wolfe, the academically most esteemed members of which integrated the knowledge for this much needed production. Through these efforts, IMHO, they offer ground breaking implications for mankind, for our victory over the current period of challenge to world community, re-initiating possibilities for survival into the 22nd Century.
          Most any psychologist or naturopath (or most any M.D.) will tell you that the most difficult thing for any human to do is break a habit, whether physical, emotional, or mental. Or as the 'Bleep' folks put it, "Nerve cells that fire together wire together, but Nerve cells that don't fire together -- or loose their long-term relationship by our interuppting that and observing the effect, then we break the automatic response mechanisms it takes, and then are free to be there for us as we are fully present with each experience" [close paraphrase, -cp]. One way of defining any world problem (by cause and effect) is its association with one or more addictions (drugs, violence, denial, etc), relative to it's association with things that create beneficial effect (upon oneself, others, or situations. This has everything to do with "neuroplasticity", and the brain essentially being a tool kit that we each have opportunities to develop and enhance.
          Breaking habits is exactly the potential of what I call the "Bleep Tool Kit": those things (methodologies, practices, attendant devices if/when appropriate) that provide the capability to break habits on every level, whether personal or interpersonal, community or inter-community, and whether just conceived or fully manifested. Creation of our individual and community habit-breaking tool kits depends on the investment of time and application of principle - via the focus of one or more people. IMO, that's the first half of 'World change' - the other half is the personal and communal application of the tools.
          The "De-Stress Kit" provides much for initiating healing on the personal level, with great potential for assisting development of inner stillness and clarity. Such benefits can certainly, even naturally, expand to most every communal context. The HeartMath.Org web site is rich with fun tools for self-assessment and quickly introducing body, mind, and emotional health. It also provides FAQ's and voluminous research reports and related links & references. [Please note: as far as I know, there is no formal relationship between HeartMath.Org and WhatTheBleep.Com; I am associating them by common function - tools for conscious personal & world change. I consider their kit a valuable, perhaps essential, part of the "Bleep Tool Kit" - as I would any system(s) that does the same for an individual, actually. In you want to get really serious about such a tool kit, I would suggest integrating Chi-Gung, yoga, and a well-formed 'power-of-spoken-word' system with all the above. -cp] De-Stress Kit   

BleepBook-Thm1.jpg

WhatTheBleep-Thm4crp.jpg
             Remember *TM* (Transcendental Meditation) - and it's effectiveness upon whole communities ? Once the media made it all about the person (the guru), and not about the function and capability - for anyone who wanted to invest the time and energy ...well, at that point the potential was neutralized - until 'Bleep' resurrected the offer (with a much more grounded yet far-reaching platform). And I don't mean to imply that 'Bleep' is all about such serious things. It's as fun as it is intellectually stimulating, even as "wondrous," as it pulls together and makes understandable so many realms of knowledge in a practical way, including the quantum physics that backs it all up!

          All that (study, focus, etc) has effected my professional work as well as most every outlook on life. That effect began during my studies into consciousness in the mid 70's, much more in the later 80's. However, that has dramatically increased recently as I've only begun to realize the (far more) integrated picture (with the implied potentials) that I attempt a useful summary of in the above paragraphs. Below are some excerpts from the 'Bleep' website.

          "Following the release of 'What the BLEEP Do We Know!?', in Q&A after Q&A, conference after conference, the filmmakers were besieged by requests for more: More information, more science, more applications to their personal lives. August 1, 2006 marks the response to these requests with the release of What the BLEEP Down the Rabbit Hole, Quantum Edition multi-disc DVD set.
  RabbitHole-Thm3.jpg

WhatTheBleep-Thm5crp.jpg

          "The original 'What The Bleep Do We Know' was made for a theatrical experience of under two hours. With these new expanded versions [in 'Down the Rabbit Hole'], the filmmakers were finally able to include all the topics as originally intended. The completed picture presents all the elements that are intrinsic to the worldview put forth in BLEEP. Topics such as Quantum Entanglement, the Double Slit Experiment, Healing and the Cell, the split and re-unification of spirit and science - all are addressed in the detail required to tell the story. Hopefully they stimulate the viewer to seek further explorations. It may be the definitive BLEEP, but it is not the last word its the final beginning." The scientists make up quite the impressive list (click to read about them & what they say).
          "Often dubbed 'the Critic proof movie' due to its ability to weather all sorts of negative reviews, What the BLEEP has an interesting history in the media. Not all are bad, not all are good, but the movie always seems to have extracted a strong reaction in the reviewer. To see what they said in the media, click here."

      Related in depth and scope towards evolvement of humanity is Gateway to Conscious Evolution with Barbara Marx Hubbard. This author and futurist is also featured in the groundbreaking documentary series, "HUMANITY ASCENDING: A New Way Through Together". In this transformational series each DVD presents vital elements to awaken the codes for our own conscious evolution and offers direction, meaning and a vision toward our birth as a new humanity. "The Humanity Ascending Series is breathtaking in its scope, startling in its clarity and gloriously hopeful, demonstrating why Barbara Marx Hubbard is a global treasure and one of the greatest visionaries of our time." —Neale Donald Walsch; Another great reference: "The Earthsteward's Handbook" by Danaan Parry and Lila Forest, Sunstone Publications 1987

Lost Mode of Prayer
Excerpt from "Awakening the Power of a Modern God" at GreggBraden.Net


Here's another approach to prayer, perhaps "the original" way. This is from the article in Greg Braden's 2005 Newsletter: "What would happen if millions of people felt the feelings of gratitude and appreciation for the peace thats already here? Certainly its worth a try! ...In 1972, 24 cities in the United States with populations over 10,000 experienced meaningful changes in their communities when as few as 1 percent (100 people) participated... These and similar studies led to a landmark study, the International Peace Project in the Middle East, which was published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution in 1988.1..."

More on Global Changes (and Prayer)

Earthquakes, Tectonic Subduction, and Inducing Gentle Pressure Release (Personally, and) at Fault Lines

Preparation?

          Yes, and Seattle.gov.emergency provides great resources, good advice for most any area, but especially if were talking about Tectonic subduction due to geologic pressures at the fault lines off the coast of Washington, and influence upon the grain characteristics relative to the friction of granular shear zones. I know, that was kind of heady, but I promise to break that down for practical use.

But as Far as Prevention?
          Well, if you are so inclined, that is, if you feel so "connected", and/or acknowledge the multi-dimensional correlary of "As Above, So Below" with Mother Earth, then I present two considerations for you. The first being what you may already be familiar with, the other what you may not be:

          1) Planetary Grid Meditation: This focuses on specific points of the planet, which points are considered the planetary equivalent of meridian/acupuncture points. And which methodology is explained well at other websites, including at VortexMaps.Com as well as the above noted Earth Changes.com.

          2) A "Gaia Correlary" for Pressure Release Practice, Meditation: This "gestalt-included" approach acknowledges the (human) emotional body's part in the "As Above, So Below" corollary. If you acknowledge the Gaia connection, you may consider (if you will engage perhaps a bit of imagination for minute or two) a correlation between tectonic plates/fissures and the human body's myo-fascia, cranial plates, and even the fascia of the internal organs.
          And that, a) by breaking inappropriate bonding between the adjoining surfaces of such systems, pathologically-held pressures are allowed to be therapeutically released; b) If these bonds are ionic, they can be bio-magnetically affected, and can be affected quite directly by vibratory applications (sound-healing modalities, etc), as well as by physical application. c) that earthquakes may be a direct or indirect result of sudden and late-to-come breaks in these bonds, and thus indications of how our human systems are bonded -healthfully with the equivalent of breathable expansion joints, or are simply "stuck" in patterns of dysfunctional intransigence? And from there, there may possibly be established as appropriate, a relationship between Bio-magnetic resonance and Geo-magnetic resonance, as for the purpose of healing? And if so, then why could there not be provided the beneficial effects of prayer, distant healing, and healing meditations (to which list some may add efforts via radiasthesia or radionics). In short, this would be acknowledging the effect of the human maturity factor, if you will, on the geological infrastructure of the planet.  1 

          This approach calls upon communities of individuals, with each individual resolving in his/her own way to therapeutically (constructively) release her/her own psycho-emotional pressures. That is, a) to appropriately release emotion (ie: via communication or other activity). Having developed understanding of this process as well as that covered above under "Science, Consciousness, & World Change", we may then b) proceed to set aside time to consciously and creatively focus on Tectonic plates (particularly the critical connecting areas of the fault lines) moving to release geologic pressures (simultaneously with the personal pressure release work or not).
          One scenario for a "projection" for this purpose might include a motherly soothing balm type energy upon a skeletal joint, while cleaning the tiniest debris out the joint, but doing so very very gently and carefully, or while cleaning a lacerated skin injury so as to release the pus, but with as little pain as possible.

          Now, for those so technically minded, if we combine with that the energetic projection of a crude form of cranial-sacral technique... Which technique includes, primary among other focii, the employment of a exceedingly gentle but amazingly effective balance-restorative adjustment of the plates comprising the skull, with some focus on the sutures that attach them, as well as upon the rythym and flow of the cerebral spinal fluid that exerts dynamic pressures upon them. Here, the sutures are comparable to the connecting areas of Tectonic fault lines, which is where we want to bring influence upon those elements related to the friction in those joints or fault lines (or "granular shear zones").

          HOWEVER: please trust and allow, as we call upon, Mother Earth / Goddess / spirit entities to manage the amounts, directions, (etc) of the Tectonic processes. EG: Just in case you thought might be able to work that out on your own laughing...so yes, we do this *without* our worrying about any details of the processes, other than the end result - all elements relatively stabilized, settled into happy places - "copacettled" ? smile We may also c) encourage others toward the understanding of the (personally applied) methodology, as well as the positive health effects of accomplishing this - whether or not they would consider any relationship of that to the planet overall. And if so, we can go from there.
          In any case, it is important to do the preparations, even as we may hope / trust that the pressure-release work may decrease the Tectonic pressures to some degree, IF not sufficiently to forstall significant subduction activity. Related: The Hidden Fire - Release Theory

What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012
by Carlos Barrios

Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge. Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of 'Chilam Balam' and various ancient text. "...All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. -- It will change --everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth ...The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. ...Now is the time to awaken and take action. ...Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history. ...Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action..."


Editor's Note: I do believe 2012 was a likely time limit upon the *beginning* of earnest changes required for even the later. Have we *earnestly* begun those changes yet? Depends on one's perspective, of course. I believe in the "100th Monkey" threshold effect, where, in this case, what we might now call "Miracles" would be (events) described simply by enough of us beginning and/or continuing to do what we know in conscience that we need to do - until that threshold effect makes it relevant to us that we have brought the rest of humanity on board the Earth Steward Ship. [- cp, June, Dec'11]



Neuroplasticity and the Gestalt
(of All of Us) in Planetary Healing

          Examples to begin with from a Gestalt perspective: When person A projects upon person B something of themselves that they refuse to identify with (ie: says something insulting), PersA is (already) reacting to OLD "stuff". And when PersB reacts to that, PersB is generally (95%+ of the time if we are talking about the average human) reacting to old stuff - not just to PersA's stuff, but to his/her own. Some might say that seems especially to apply where contentions or wars have generally been based in reactions to steriotypes that are centuries of generations old.
          To wit, when so many of these people look at each other, certainly across political conference tables (when you can get them there), we might wonder who they see vs who they perceive is looking back at them? But these conflicted groups serve as our mirrors, as living stories for learning - for ALL of us. That's whether we chose them (as political leaders/representatives), we chose not, and/or the default of power-seeking applies; Bucky Fuller said, "Unconscious decisions have consequences". And of course, it seems it would be more than a good time to learn (at least more effectively) about this image dis/identification, mirroring, projection, associated steriotyping, etc.

See Note Below
          More proactively speaking: Although some would say this is too deep for most humans to learn, others might say they are just not up on their neuroplasticity lessons (increasing one's intelligence by particular kinds of exercises). And yes, the motivation must be there. One good thing that has come out of all the traumatic brain injuries of the recent wars is the successful application of those lessons - people with severe brain injuries are constructing neural workarounds to relearn how to use their most important tool kit. In the process, we are discovering many many tools in ALL of our mind-body tool kits that we never knew were there, that essentially require our digging up and dusting off. Those have much to do with how we respond emotionally as well as intellectually, as well as physically.
          Neuro-scientists are constantly proving what the human potential folks have been saying for decades, and, oh yeah, what the yogi's have been showing us for a few thousand years. And there is no limit to the application, so we might want to encourage all good-hearted folks to get with this. At least before the power-abuser types use it to further their capacity to foist their OLD "stuff" upon each other (and upon us too, by the way).
  This was my 4th of July piece for 2012.   I know, "where's the fireworks?!"   But what about those that happen internally, after fighting spiritual battles ***internally***   and with each step of hard-gained resolution, an increase in radiating magnetic streamers that emblazon one's heart, and increase that blazing outward to remind others' hearts & minds of their natural inner-luminance and Spirit, and so further lighting those fires... ( ! ? ! ) At my Art Gallery this piece and many others of my artwork can be viewed at full resolution, and is available in framed or canvas prints, greeting cards, & more.

" 'The Lords of Culture' and Listening..."
 
 
What's that got to do with anything?
Think about what it would be like for you in a hospital
where the nurses never came when you cried out in pain
because the doctors limited their time with the patients.
Now consider your political leaders as the doctors
of your community or nation.
Who was listening when they were elected,
or when they just took power?
...when the decisions were made about
how resources were distributed?
So, a) how did all that come about, and
b) what are the means and mechanisms for *healing* that?

From the levels that will make a difference,
psychologically and socio-politically?
Because the sub-title of the essay is
"A story about Language, Relationship, and 'the Body-Mind Split',
An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context".
Which sounds complex, but as you read, you'll see that
the learning required to apply the cure
is not beyond our capacities.

The times require it - the learning, the application.
And that's what WE have got to do with it - with all we care about.

For many readers as well as this author, many of the ideals stated or implied on various pages at my site are supremely challenging to say the least, and understandably so. I present them because I believe they help us formulate a useful vision by which we can effectively develop realistic and purposeful goals. Very few get to live up to our highest ideals, but without ideals, what would we live up to?
More pragmatically (?) on the subject:
Dblstar-Chalice Bullet, © Chris Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com    "The Goal Chart - A Flow-Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and The Achievement of Goals, Attainment, and the Role of Inner-Work". And "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (same page, Aug'11) is About clarifying what we most truly want, and how we can have that... also about HOW we respond to Pain & Loss (whether caused by disease, ourselves, others, or the economy) and are brought back together again. Less pragmatic perhaps, useful in their own right:
Dblstar-Chalice Bullet, © Chris Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com    At the "Evo-Trends" page, are sections, "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment" and "Seven Phases of Evolution". On the later: 'This perspective (using a system of evolution/growth phases) is provided as a vehicle or means for the study of evolution - so that we might look at where we are now, relative to where we want to go. So that our ideals and purpose for living might be considered in depth, as well as in the long term, "macro-cosmically" if you will. And thereby, we might develop the goals and plans that may effectively assist us in surviving the impending global challenges we face today.'

"holding the vision" of our potential.
Other pages at this site are born out of similar hopes, dreams, and visions. HOW CAN WE GET BEYOND what seems to be a current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation? There are a number of considerations, various "realms" of them if you will, and below is a virtual network of links to presentations, representing various solution oriented approaches for developing current realities into those we most want. When I use the term "evolution" at this website, I am referring to the psycho-social evolution of humankind, resulting in lasting change on the physical level (particularly with the brain), and not to the science of evolution and the controversy around that. And usually from the perspective or paradigm that looks at the recent psycho-social trends - in comparison to the overall course of mankind - and possible future scenarios.

(Towards an "ART & SCIENCE of Body, Mind, & Spirit Integration")

            Presenting artwork on the "Chalice" or Grail theme (by yours truly), both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, & a little bio on how it began & developed. This art is born out of the 3D geometric vision/ visual "seen" in 1985, which experience was complete with correlations to deep (pre-Christian) symbology - which initiated the research into the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (and sources, and how and why that was later edited by "the Church"), as well as into various body-mind-spirit correlations, & healing alchemy & energy dynamics. All this related both the body & the grail elements to the mind's interface, in a way that makes sense of many otherwise-would-be paradoxes & mysteries, bridging arts & sciences, with implications related to whole health, including one's relationship with his/her cells. And when incorporating "sacred geometry" into the the rendered symbols (per pi-ratio) -also relevant to the DNA of all Life (proportion as essential to function), most interesting artforms seem to naturally appear.
          Essentially (Per mystical symbolism which precedes anything any religion has, or may yet, to do with it), the chalice is about the human embodiment of Spirit (or Who or whatever It is that created & connects all Life) into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, & physical) which compose the "Body-Mind". Which is also a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity - individually & communally. Chalice "Productions" may thus refer to each person AS a chalice in development. There are essays on various geometry, proportion, function, symbolism, history, & possible implications, including a working Summary for Pragmatic Balance of psycho-social objectives & approaches for bringing about an evolution of mankind as alluded to at this page and addressed at various others at Chalice Bridge.
          The ARTWORK: overall is an eclectic/symbolic mix of multiple layers of brights and subtles, often emerging out of veils, mists, or "darkness", with thematic components that blend in sacred geometry very symmetrically yet rendered with an artistic balance of textures and grounding touch. There are many samples at this page, as well as many others at Chalice Bridge, with full size images at Artist Websites .Com (of Fine Art America).

The "Pragmatic Balance" section and
its sister page, "The Mystical Jesus - Selected Reviews"

          "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?" is about relationships among the symbolic chalice, the Holy Grail, the legend, the actual related history, current day religious extremism, and the future (psycho-social) evolution of Man.
          That is, it extends from extensive historical references (noted/linked therein) that extend back to Celtic pre-Christian times as well as to the Celtic Christian, and what is referred to as "the Matter of Britain", and more. Except for the Dark Ages which are so-named due to the most disappointing lack of historical data - very puzzling to scholars for the last many centuries.
          And I interpret that lack of documentation as directly related to the transition period (including inquisitions and destruction or hiding of documents, as well as plagues) -- that followed Constantine's assembly of documents that became the bible (via "the Church", as they censored parts of them and kept out many other documents) -- and all that implied for "the Church"s agenda, including plans for rule of what was to become Europe.

          The sister page, "The Mystical Jesus" provides the detailed story form summaries for certain historical aspects (grail, bloodline, templars...) and the lost years and more mystical background of Jesus. While all that is put into context at the "Pragmatic Balance" section.
          At Chalice Bridge, "The Bloodline of Jesus" is actually not a primary focus when comes to the symbolism of the chalice / grail, but as one evidence of the symbolism as presented. Which symbolism relates to the purpose of "polarity" in the universe, not only at the atomic level per Sacred Geometry, but in relationships - magnetism / gender / other opposites in continuum, including *extremes*). And to related interpretation of the grail legend as relates to the history (with the summaries in context), to the (psycho-social) evolution of Man, to the world's key religions as well as the Gnostics (by nature of that which unites all of them, although is not necessarily about them). All that is then related to, with implications for, current times and potential future scenarios. And to why there have been "holy wars" - and, more importantly, to why there is absolutely no need for them (if there ever was). Here, the bloodline is as much about EVERYONE having the divine connection (and inheritance and potential), as it is about one family having it.

          If you like good drama, begin with the "Mystical Jesus" page. If you like the infrastructure of analysis and implication, with lots of symbolism, psychology, and references, then off to the "Pragmatic Balance" section with you. smile To follow up, also at the Chalice Art page, is the essay, " 'The Lords of Culture' & Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, & the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (7'10) accompanied by, "Therapies & Levels of 'The Spectrum of Consciousness' " a seminal chart by Ken Wilber; "Paradigm Shifts" (7'10).

What would actually change our health-care system the most?

          How about a means of diagnosis that takes so many aspects of a person into account, that it creates a capacity for designing a truly healing program for most any patient? Nice dream you say. How could a diagnostic system be that accurate for so many conditions? What would enable our medical system to consider, so surely and comprehensively to so much greater depth and context, the many processes for the many different kinds of individuals, than we do now? Well, of course, such questions indicate a healthy skepticism. But let's dream just a bit more, but this time, from outside the box, as they say:

         What if there were a system of assessment that would bring together the great many disciplines of health-care - particularly including Eastern, Naturopathic, and even the many among the Western - and to a degree of collaboration that was far beyond what we've ever seen before? In case you don't know, such collaboration is currently not a reality to any meaningful extent, certainly for most health conditions. Particularly between those focusing on the body, and those focusing on the mind, not to mention the relative few focusing on the connection between the two. Bottom Line: When enough people become sufficiently motivated to know the degree to which individuals can heal themselves and each other through body-awareness-based preventative maintenance, then the research will be funded and implemented.

         The Fascia-Memory Project is about research and development into the relationships among connective tissue (fascia), objective/subjective experience, the neuro-physical interface between emotion, and the brain, and "body-Memory." About developing connective tissue scanning devices and diagnostics hardware for discerning and illustrating all that. Goals include the developing optimal means for applying that R&D in health care practice, as well as enhanced systems for individual development of body-awareness for preventative health maintenance. A long term project, of course, but intermediate goals and sub-projects could have considerable effective change. The range of application extends from the medical industry to personal home use, to public education, to social and correctional rehabilitation. Original Theory published June'96.

          The project's web site includes pages for Intro & Summary (with a detailed table of contents with links to the other pages - Description & Purpose, Goals & Objectives, Research & Development, Theory, References & Links [extensive], Project Overview Chart, Project Flow Chart ( "Pert" style output by 'MS Project' ), and links to accompanying documents at this site. For context and perspective on this far-reaching multi-faceted proposal, see (page 8) the Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart.

A Different Take on Evolution
Dblstar-Chalice Bullet, © Chris Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com    Evolution Trends: The 'Information Age' And Its Evolution Into The 'Holographic Age'
Challenges and Realistic Goals For Survival and Creating A Desirable Future, © Nov'95
NOTE: At this website the term "evolution" refers to that of human consciousness, resulting in lasting change on the physical level.
Evolve Humanity, ChaliceVortex&Planet'evolve-balance', © Chris Pringer PolyPsyArt 2008        
          We are currently in the "Information Age" of global-scale *collection and organization * of data and data systems. The "Holographic Age" will be marked by "...the integration of data (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age) ...will bring about a tremendous explosion in capabilities of unprecedented scope, magnitude, and depth... The ability to offer/affect pre-designed physiological, emotional, mental, and psychic change on human beings..." Intelligence manages information, but wisdom manages Intelligence. This "adventurous" draft into the future (or potential future scenarios) at many key areas of evolvement of Human Society. Organized web page includes sections: "Getting There From Here - and The Political Maze In Between," "Some Trends and Developments In Health and Environment," "Psycho-Social Transition And Rehabilitation" (in corrections, education, and health), and "The Role Of Intuition Coming Home...". Recent additions include: much improved "Basis of Assessment - with "Seven Phases of Evolution"; "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment"; and "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" (& Purpose, Structure, Religion, Karma), and ref-links for the "updated" prophecies for the year 2012.
          ie: [from original August 1995 paper:] "...Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of 'Polarization.' So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time... critical on many levels. The implications may therefore be timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction => ...'Polarization' refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes. The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper 'dual relationship'), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals... ...will develop out of necessity - much due to the aberrations of the info age (psychological manipulation and necessary defense systems practiced by/for/against businesses in competition as well as for military reasons => ...personal data as common knowledge <=> 'Age of Exposure' => ...the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy..."
'Geo&Chakra Skull&Chalice' & 'Grail Mind', © Chris Pringer PolyPsyArt 2010
'GeoChakra Skull & Chalice' & "Grail Mind" - PolyPsyArt 2010
        But if we get through all that, one of the many noted benefits include "... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... The application of intuition may find an unprecedented role in terms both of breadth and of its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...As a result, various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..."
          The original paper was email published in Nov '95 on listserv@intuition.org (Institute of Noetic Sciences) and Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu. Yes, *1995* - So I guess the "system" I used was not so bad (based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution," as detailed on that page in Dec'09). Some intuition did enter in between that system and the "if this, then this" logic - scans of original notes with hand-drawn flow-charts included, but I've never called this "a prophecy," but a perceived spiritual challenge (for humanity) with potentially great rewards - an opportunity for taking responsibility. Even so: That 10 year 'prep' period has just passed - wherein so much did indeed determine about how and how soon we begin this next age - or if we do before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But remember "that spaceship" that's going to save us ? Wink Well, IMO, the pilots are none other than ourselves - as our Earth-Steward selves that is. So, IF it happens, not to worry, we won't miss a minute of it -- IMO, God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (And responsible. Or don't we want to earn our way ?!)

  "Thresholds, Changing Trends, and
Learning from Extremism"

at the page, "New Information & Facilitating
Paradigm Shift Potential."

Initiating with a slightly eclectic introduction, the writing provides a fair amount of the scholastics and background research on "Threshold Effect"," and "Classic threshold models - the two most pertainent - as well as a few related uses for this variable that is useful for recognizing, assessing, and predicting key events and trends in processes. Trends being the operant word, since the current times 2015-2016 have been especially remarkable for their unpredictability. Also includes a pertainant review of Granovetter's model in Malcolm Gladwell's article, "Thresholds Of Violence" -- about the "school-shooting epidemic," "The Power of Context" and "The Tipping Point." As well as some implications - but with considerations for practical application, including for how to take all this in - AND references, including an extensive list copied from the Wikipedia page on Conscience. Finishes up with a summary assembly of context usages of "threshold effect" at the site. [New, June 2016]

TemplarKnightOnHorse[sourceUnknown]-Fix4Sz-cp-222px.jpg
Is that Lancelot? Or YOU with your shining armor, lance, and cloak of truth?" ?


What's WRONG with this picture?
(And, yes, what's also right with it?)

What about how we (most folks) relate to the archetype of Knighthood? And how many people (not just guys) relate that archetype (consciously or unconsciously) to their self-image as related to military service? (And what about that armor, shining or not? Rolfers and Integrative Bodywork practitioners might have an answer for you, by the way smile with far, far-reaching psychological implications, however.) Granted, I could think of far far worse archetypes for someone bent on going to war - ie: those unassociated with such attributes as chivalry. And what does the "Holy Grail" represent? (more about "balance" than extremism perhaps?). There is a also a story about how a former Marine (guess who Wink ) who came to a have different perspective on this. BIG HINT about that archetype being associated to military service: What if I said Spiritual battles were meant to be fought within? And that the grail legend was / is about recovering balance (and recovering from EXTREMISM) as as essential part of that? (at least eventually through our evolution as humans). [Hence the chalice art at this site, whether for "spiritual" purposes or not.]

Why Politics at all?
My Love/Hate Relationship with Politics
(Note: that's "with", not "for".)

          Question: Is politics the place to learn about empowerment on the earth plane, when it comes to making any difference in the evolution of our species? Or is the state of governmental affairs just an extension only of certain parts of us? Maybe it is where so many learn (Love-Wisdom) BECAUSE it is also one of the most heart-breaking realms to delve into(?)
          Yes, the political world is repleat with opportunities for being/feeling disillusioned and/or betrayed, and (psychologically) faced with the choices of a) forgiving, healing, and continuing in service, or b) dropping out and rationalizing that choice with one of the many excuses that are called "spiritual." And how many of we "soft Americans" have sufficient strength to maintain awareness of the more difficult realities, to work to improve conditions, AND (after being knocked off the horse, get back on and) maintain a kind and compassionate approach every day?
          HOWEVER, for those of us so idealistic to try: As we focus on the ideal we draw near and close the gap between that reflected universe that we know mirrors our highest potentials, and the universe that we have tended to "see" around us. And so doing we recreate the universe we live in more like that highest reflection. "Which is the dream?" asks the Shaman.

          Another Question: Call me a "pragmatic idealist," but politically and pragmatically speaking, how is it that we maintain our awareness in "both worlds" - so as to see the best pathway between them, and create our own individual *realistic* goals, and from there our communal *realistic* goals, and achieve them along that pathway? HOW CAN WE GET BEYOND what seems to be the current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation?
          Hence the challenge of integrating our emotional bodies and (with) our spiritual bodies: Is that not one of our spiritual opportunities while living in a body? If we are not the only species in the universe, and if the wiser ones were visiting us to teach their kids about the evolution of living beings, would they wonder if this integration was what our species was created for? Or is that just another projection of ego ? One possible assist in such considerations and "paradoxical delemnas" is the Goal Chart page, "Achievement of Goals, Attainment, And the Role of Inner Work - A Flow Chart of the Human Psyche in..."

         A metaphorical approach becomes very pragmatic in " 'The Lords of Culture' and Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, and the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (and Emotional Intelligence), described a few sections above, and one of those noted in "A Kind of Summary for Pragmatic Balance" (of this and other pages at the site), including psycho-spiritual evolution, has also been created there.

            The Chalice Bridging logo symbolizes the flow of insight from the formless world to the formed world, to how we work together to put the answers and solutions to the above questions into form - to the degree that we do.

An invocation/affirmation I try to remember (especially when carrying political signage):
"People, including myself, see what we most need to see-
in Accordance with the Most Highest Loving Will of God,
I acknowledge Compassionate, truthful, and useful perspective
of self and relationship with the world people & environment.
I release my attachment/expectation for, any change in nation-states,
while acknowledging that miracles are possible,
and maintaining the most effective vision to keep me going -
where and how I need to go.
Thank YOU, God/Goddess, and most loving Spirit of All."

          Summary From essay,
"A Re-balancing Transition Process for Healing
Government, the Economy, and the Global Warming Crisis":

          One could say that medical over-categorization has led people to be bigoted and "extremist" towards their medical conditions. This can apply to political conditions, whether they be *called* capitalistic, socialistic, communistic, right-wing or leftist (especially while the defining or labeling of various political strategies, let alone mentioning "class war," can be so controversial in itself). As in medicine, finding and maintaining the right balance of elements in any governing system requires an unprejudiced and objective analysis. That includes the appreciation of (the diversity of) the proper place and role of almost every type of strategy and mechanism ever used in history, all considered in the context of each their settings (era, place, and circumstance), in order to develop what will work optimally for any current circumstance. And then a "Diet" is prescribed to facilitate transition to and maintenance for the truly workable system. Easy? Of course not, certainly given these requirements for transition: Time for integration of what we've learned mentally, and for healing much of what we've learned emotionally (in the "school of hard knocks") for necessary realizations regarding relationships (with self, others, Higher Power as applies), values, purpose, direction. If these don't apply, then it could only be easier Wink
          Also at the "Poly-Psy Citizen Healing" page: Favorite Alternative Solution Sites and the sidebar essay, "Solutions: Common Means to Efficient Paths, 'Bridging' in the Cross-Discipline Approach" [Oct'07, ed.3'09, 3'10 ...]

(3'09); and      "'Empathy' or 'Armor' by Definition..." - Clarifying where the definition has come to be re-defined to apply in limited ways and directions (4'10)

      Why these "Poly-Psy" charts and essays?      

               Because our government has been greatly influenced by the (Pre-Obama Era) 60-80% of the citizens NOT participating. We (speaking of Americans over the last five centuries or so) have allowed/created our current condition -- in terms of various attitudes, beliefs, and values - and some interesting times wherein we re-defined certain values. And this implies, therapeutically speaking, we can therefore can *heal* our socio-political condition by changing those attitudes and re-clarifying some values over more time. That implies potential for a form of continuing *preventative health maintenance* curriculum at schools and colleges. Call me a "pragmatic idealist," but I BELIEVE WE CAN GET BEYOND what seems to be a current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation? Paradigm shift tension, anyone? How much are we ready for? But doesn't every writer asks that question - or just those who want us to "bridge" - to encourage exploration of our potentials and what we perceive as our limitations?
          Many writers note the incredible degree of short memory and denial that has been going on in America. Perhaps that is because we have wanted so strongly, even tenaciously, to believe in our "good guy" image of ourselves - certainly more than we want to acknowledge our attachment to our standard of living. I believe it essential to the planet, considering the power of the United States, that the citizenry wake up, suffer the inevitable heartbreak, get a hold of ourselves and heal that, get real AND learn to use our anger constructively, and get in charge of what we can be proud of, and create much more of same. Hence, the essay     "Trends, Memory, Tracking, Trust, and Forgiveness".
