Yoga philosophy, race, and 'colorblindness' — Tantrik Studies 08/15/2021

Yoga philosophy, race, and 'colorblindness' — Tantrik Studies

This is long. And good.

If you practice yoga, or any spiritual practice, this is a well written article on spirituality and historically oppressed or marginalized groups, often referred to as BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) and white privilege, white dominance in society and the ideal of ‘I don’t see color’ bypassing.

It’s harmful to bypass and ignore the lives pain and suffering of other. Guilt tends to have us bypass this difficult piece. We cannot heal until we are able to hold this pain, suffering and deep grief with our fellow humans 💗❤️‍🩹💗

Yoga philosophy, race, and 'colorblindness' — Tantrik Studies A departure from the norm for Tantrik Studies, this post is likely to awaken some and offend others.

[08/03/21]   Invisible

There is no greater realm of grace
Than the way life flows through you
At this very moment
As you move across this sacred land
Ears attuned to the natural

You are surrounded
At every moment
By unaccounted forces, mysterious,
Miraculous
Hanging on the very breath you breathe

The moment you turn to that
Golden, invisible
For even an instant
That is the moment
You create the miracle.

While the fires burn across our lands, there is also an inner fire at work, especially for women in these times. Coming in the near future, I’ll be hosting a journey for women as we move through the energy of our time.

Here’s one thing we will be working with:
.
.
White Hot Rage
.
Let me tell you this,
It is righteous, this fire,
It burns a clear path
If I tend to it well
.
Too many times
It has left nothing
But grey, scorched earth
.
For underneath
Is a grief so wide
An abyss so deep
There seems to be no end.
.
To be of value
For heart
And soul
For ideas
And insight
To, once again, be holy.
.
In its place
Condemned
By purity
Burned
For truth
Relegated
By ones no more worthy
Then silenced through the ages
.
I want to burn it all down
With a white hot rage
That sears just beneath my skin
.
There is no room for this kind of fire
.
So I sit
With each breath
A fire of its own
Imagining the flames
As they leave my mouth
Fueled by times long since past
.
Tended well, still
It threatens to consume
.
If you know not
Of which I speak,
I will smile
And continue on
.
Led by my heart
Who knows this fire
And how to hold
The white hot edges
Of this precious wound.
.

We are shifting paradigms.

>

Many of us live under the medical myth that the heart is only a pump, an idea borne of an industrialised culture that views the body as a machine.

The heart however is so much more beautiful and fascinating than we ever could have imagined!

“Modern analysis of the heart has shown that in spite of the fact that the most powerful ventricle of the heart can shoot water six feet into the air, the amount of pressure actually needed to force the blood through the entire length of the body’s blood vessels would have to be able to lift a one hundred pound weight one mile high” - Stephen Buhner

So how does the blood move around the labyrinth-like vessels of our body?

It moves of its own accord.

You see, blood flow is not a simple stream like we once thought.

It is in fact composed of two streams, spiralling around each other much like the image of a DNA double helix, at the centre of which is a vacuum.

“Blood flow through living vessels is much more like a tornado than anything else: Such a vacuum is necessary for producing a vortex” - Stephen Buhner

How cool is that?

This spiral dance is not only found in the bloodstream, but also in the blood cell itself!

Blood cells in fact spin on their own individual axes of rotation. They are smaller spinning cells in a larger spinning vortex.

If your mind is not blown yet, let’s go back to the heart.

The heart itself has recently been discovered not to be a mass of muscle, but rather a ‘helicoidal myocardial band’ that has spiralled in upon itself, creating its unique shape and its separate chambers.

This is called the Helical Heart, and you can see doctors unravel it by searching ‘Helical Heart’ on Youtube.

Pair this with discoveries that the heart functions as an endocrine gland, has its own nervous system that makes and releases its own neurotransmitters, and emits an electromagnetic field that is far stronger than the brain’s, and we begin to move from the idea that the heart is simply a mechanical pump.

It is a spiralling organ of perception.

If that’s not beautiful, we don’t know what is.

Unburdened

The blueberries here today
Plump and full, with just enough tang
Are a sweet contrast,

Their grey-blue eyes kindly indifferent
Relaxed in their place with the world,
Absent of concern of anything more

There’s an unwinding here,
a yield of opening
No longer jammed with tightly held edges
Signals it is all on the move

As if the compass had changed
Or a finger had dropped
And everything slowed,

Or it was just me,

Escorted by gravity,
Floated to new ground
I’d be a fool to deny.

As flesh touches down,
Eyes work to clear,
flirting with alternate futures
Ours entirely to shape

This clay, graciously delivered, is ready to mold
This process of freedom a full possibility,
Answers arrive with one looming question,

Are you able to hold a life this large?

Beautiful Things

Remember this,

The way your chest widens
Allowing your heart to meet itself
Across yellow-green grasses,

Clouds skating over chilled air
Kissed with sunlight,
Dancing with your soft skin

The way stone mounds
Hold eternity

And precious, violet flowers, like sentinels stand,
Sacred, in congregations of sage, as far as your longing eyes can see,

The way your mind was still
A part of it all.

This is your legacy,
A gathering of things
To add to your unique beauty,

Whose cost is only time

The wind will ferry you Home
Always,
If only you spend a moment and let it.
