Is What We Perceive As Beautiful An Individual Decision Of The Mind?

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I am sure you all have heard before the expression “beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”. It is an often used quote when people are talking about falling in love with somebody, who for others is hard to imagine as a match. In this particular context it refers to the fact that relationship love is an irrational thing and that falling for somebody is rather a colorful mix of reasons, than what can be seen on the surface alone.
In most mythologies on this planet, we find the representative of love, beauty, music, joy and color to be the same figure, for example in Egyptian tradition the goddess Hathor. This is helpful for us to know when we desire to develop a deeper understanding of the divine feminine energy, or a profounder connection to the vibrations that inspire our creativity.

But that is not all that a study of beauty can do. It can serve for each of us, as well as for the collective awakening process into the Golden Age of Aquarius, as there is also a spiritual aspect to beauty. Imagine you are training your mind to evaluate all experiences you make from the same space of recognizing its beauty. Imagine whatever weather the day brings, you decide that it is beautiful. In order to do so we need to be capable of detecting the seductive side of beauty, and separating it from the nurturing side, which for some of us is a long term project on our personal path of growth :-).

Prayer to Hathor as Goddess of Love:
Let me worship the Golden One to honor her Majesty,
and exalt the Lady of Heaven;
Let me give adoration to Hathor
and songs of joy to my heavenly Mistress!

I beg her to hear my petitions
that she send me my mistress now!
And she came herself to see me!
What a great thing that was when it happened!

I rejoiced, I was glad, I was exalted,
from the moment they said, “Oh, look at her!
See, here she comes!” – and the young men bowing
trough their enormous passion for her.

Let me consecrate breath to my Goddess
that she give me my Love as a gift!
It is four days now I have prayed in her name;
let her be with me today!
John L.Foster
It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
Leo Tolstoy

That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.
John Green

The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere – in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion and in ourselves. No-one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the Beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming. Some of our most wonderful memories are of beautiful places where we felt immediately at home. We feel most alive in the presence of the Beautiful for it meets the needs of our soul.
John O’Donohue

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
John Muir

Don’t get me wrong, I admire elegance and have an appreciation of the finer things in life. But to me, beauty lies in simplicity.
Mark Hyman

There is a beauty and clarity that comes from simplicity that we sometimes do not appreciate in our thirst for intricate solutions.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Albert Einstein

My belief is that we were put into this world of wonders and beauty with a special ability to appreciate them, in some cases to have the fun of taking a hand in developing them, and also in being able to help other people instead of overreaching them and, through it all, to enjoy life – that is, to be happy.
Robert Baden-PowellDear Ones, I hope you are feeling inspired by this little collection of information, and that you can see the amazing beauty you can add to the creation of the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth right now. Allow me to close this piece with an advice by Marcus Aurelius “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”.
Love and Blessings!

Why We Need To Have Strong Believes And Keep Our Mind Open

open-mindby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
many of you, who are reading my posts on regular base, know me as a person of strong believes and full of faith for the unfolding of the Golden Age of Aquarius. Born in the star sign Aquarius, I am used to receiving visions that are reaching far out in “time”; and born as the Mayan sign E or EB – The Road, I am supposed to understand the design of the path that collectively gets us there. So most of the time my inner clarity combined with my personality, lead me to strong opinions and a feeling of personal stability.
Now that it a really good place to be in life and it feels perfectly harmonic to live the life I created for myself; and it is a dangerous place for any human being to stay and get lazy in relying on opinions and values build long ago. And this is where open-mindedness is coming into the game. The more we are “oh so sure” in our own world, the more we need people from other countries, religions, ethical backgrounds and opposite life path’s to keep us wide and receptive. And this is a crucial trait to let our mind sour.

The ability for open-mindedness is defined as a continuing receptiveness to new ideas and controversial perspectives. It is closely relate to our ability to express emotional intelligence in our exchanges with others. People who live open-mind in everyday life, will rather show a tendency to be interested and respectful to believes very unfamiliar to themselves. They will maybe even express their gratitude for the possibility to be changed by the views and different knowledge the other shared.

For the spiritual seeker it might even go as far as an openness to allow each of this challenging new thoughts, to rattle our life and enrich our ability to embrace humanity in its endless extensions. After all we can create from every encounter in our life, a new sacred geometry of higher understanding in our energy body. That is not always a comfortable process, but than we need to remember that “life begins at the end of our comfort zone”!!

So lets see what wise men over the ages had to say about the advantages of living life with an open mind:
“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
George Bernard Shawc“Always be respectful and open-minded when listening to another man’s beliefs. What you reject today could be your mantra tomorrow. Man’s evolution is all about transformations. An unexpected experience you have one day can change you forever.”
Suzy Kassem

“The thing is, it’s very dangerous to have a fixed idea. A person with a fixed idea will always find some way of convincing himself in the end that he is right”
Atle Selberg

“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed.”
Marcus Aurelius

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
Albert Einstein

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.”
Alan Alda

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.”
Frank Zappa

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
Mark Twain

“It is never too late to give up your prejudices”
Henry David Thoreau

“The only way to change someone’s mind is to connect with them from the heart.”
Rasheed OgunlaruaDear Ones, I hope you feel inspired right now to challenge yourself to as many mind altering experiences and encounter, as you possibly can allow without loosing your stability in life. Go step by step, be kind to yourself – there are days where we can handle big steps and others for small simple adjustments. Allow me to end this article with a quote from John Maynard Keynes “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?”
Open minded blessings!

Shifting an Angry World into a Paradigm of Inner Peace & Authentic Action

kkby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
this years amazing frequencies for the collective awakening of humanity, are on a run. The effects have kicked in quite immediately the clock all over the was shifting to the 1.1.2016, and of we went with the wind of change into the new paradigm of peaceful living, harmonious community building and wise decision making when it comes to our future creations and co-creation partners. In my post about the collective cleansing of the first chakra, I mentioned that anger and frustration are two of the feelings that will more and more change for us. The intensity of how some of us have experienced the impact of this emotions, is daily fading more and a chance arises to transform our old behavior pattern to more fitting expressions for the Golden Age.
In general anger is a big one to transform, as or body supports with full force, the idea to move forward with this feeling. When we get angry, the amygdala of the brain (the part that deals with emotion) is going crazy. That makes our physical bodies reaction kick in and it wants to do something about the situation – IMMEDIATELY. Within a blink of an eye, the adrenal glands flood the body with stress hormones, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisolour, the blood flow increases, feelings of excitement and anxiety arise and your muscles get activated.
Our Anger sets of the natural ‘fight or flight response’ of in the body, we gear up strength to survive a wrong that’s been perpetrated against you. The brain shoots blood into our muscles, in preparation for a physical confrontation. And most importantly – the mind is sharpened and focused within the second!!!! Most important, because this is the split second that also allows us to STEP BACK and evaluate the moment!!! According to well documented scientific research, the neurological response to anger actually lasts less than two seconds. This is why many people picked up on the idea of counting to 10 when angry!!!1aAnd lets be clear on one thing, I don’t think that anger is wrong – or a feeling we ‘should not have’, indeed anger is part of life within a physical body. The naturally build in physical cues of anger alert us, that something needs to be done as the situation we are in, is unhealthy, harmful or deforming for our true self. The thing is just, that we are now inspired to manifest the Golden Age of Aquarius, and the way how we choose to express our anger – is from now on, key to leading the collective of humanity into mass awakening; the level of increase we achieve in our collective ability for problem solving; and on a spiritual level that means, everybody is even more responsible now, to deal with what ever anger issues are left in their system, till this world is ready to live in balance, harmony and a state of world peace!!! Already ~Marcus Aurelius, The Roman Emperor (26 April 121 – 17 March 180 AD) shared a similar few of us human beings and this world, by understanding the whole Universe as a single living being:

“Never forget that the universe is a single living organism possessed of one substance and one soul, holding all things suspended in a single consciousness and creating all things with a single purpose that they might work together spinning and weaving and knotting whatever comes to pass.”

We are still supposed to stand up and tell our offenders that the behavior they showed is inappropriate, incorrect or injustice in our eyes, in some cases even more than ever (governments, our food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the animal rights, human rights), and we are invited to a new paradigm of communication. A time of honest expression, from a place of openness and vulnerability, that truly allows us to engage with another (even in situations of deep disagreement!!) and actively supports the union in all our human relationships and communities.huge.9.45562Many of you, who read my blog on a regular basis, are Indigo Children, Crystal Children, Empathic People or Highly Sensitive People, that is one of the reasons why you feel attracted to my work. What all of this people have in common is that they are naturally taking in all the problems in the world, which than can create a strong sense of injustice, frustration, anger and even resignation in them, as this are all feelings we are inhaling from a human collective of 7 billion people. And some of us are even called to fulfill their soul path that way. To rise above the impact, in order to be part of the conscious awakening team ;-). There is nothing in the world that can not be forgiven! In history many have walked that path before us, marking the way we now are called to journey together.

“Yes, I was angry. And I was a little afraid. After all I’ve not been free in so long. But, when I felt that anger well up inside of me, I realized that if I hated them after I got outside that gate, then they would still have me! But I wanted to be free, so I let it go.” ~Nelson Mandela upon leaving prison after 27 years of confinement!!

Are you still sure the injustice done to you today is big enough, that you have THE RIGHT for a reaction of fiery anger, rage explosions or even treats / actions of physical violence? In case you hear an inner “YES” than it might be time to check your privileges in life and get on the peace train!! And for all of you who feel they are part of the peace movement already, CONGRATULATIONS… it will get a hell lot easier in the coming month.a2Dear Ones to close the circle, allow me to tell you that I am not sharing this tips and insides coming from an easy life and always been happy. I was angry!! Oh dear was I angry!! And in the last two days about twenty things happened, that some weeks ago would still have triggered something. But today in the morning, I just could not get angry anymore. I could feel this old me, still there in a corner of my body and somehow wanting to keep going the old way, and at the same time my body failed in it’s ‘fight or flight’ respond, so the fire did not go on. May this share bring you hope on your way to deeply peaceful manifestations, may you have others to play with and most of all, may you be free by heart!!!
Peace Hugs and Love!
Edith
