The Abundance of Silent Vision – April 16, 2017

Started off the morning with taking a short walk along the boulevard of Mekong River after a great breakfast of omelet and cheese at Mut Wee Garden Guest House http://www.mutwee.com

20170416_104411

Than was called by inner guidance to go to Wat Sri Chaam Chuan. Sat in the main temple there for awhile all alone. A wonderful energy build up occurred with rainbow swirling around. When I went out to walk further I was asked by a monk to come forward. He gave me a water blessing 3x on the head and each shoulders. After this I felt very energized to continue the journey in the presence of Now.

This beautiful Lotus Flower greeted me on the way.

The next destination was the Wat Tung Sawang. It took awhile to find it and a friendly man from Florida, USA assisted me to find it. I walked along the highway 212 returning some streets that I had passed along the way.

reference a story Julian Wright wrote on his blog of Mut Wee Garden Guest House.

Quote: The prize for the prettiest temple would probably go to Wat Tung Sawang. Its tiny but immaculately sculptured chapel with highly detailed porticos, and its collection of Buddhist deities outside, each under its own fanciful little roof, gives it an Alice in Wonderland bizarreness. Unquote

I waited for awhile because there was a family who wished to take photographs of a monk together with the family on the front of the temple here. After this I went into silence for awhile in the temple. Some clarity came through that I remembered this flow and why the interior of my home in The Netherlands was related to this resonance.

Hereby the various dieties that vibrated here.

Above is the center of the deities.

Than I climbed up the tower there with a huge drum, which I touched lightly 3 times and a huge bell which I also sounded.

From there the view of the temple was magnificent.

 

From here I was called to go to the Sala Jao Phu Ya.  Was not that impressed  by these surroundings but the symbol did give its message.

Sala Jao Phu Ya is the Chinese Mahayana temple and, unlike some Chinese temples, is kept doll’s house perfect. Nong Khai has a strong Chinese and Vietnamese population who originally would have been Mahayana Buddhist.

Now it was almost 12:00 a.m. and the temperature was rising. So I decided to go to a special lady at her coffee shop. She serves the finest Green Tree with Lime at the library and this time she had baked a chocolate cake. Delicious!

 

The Tzolkin Calendar Spiral Movement of Sunday, April 16

Chant: Cib, Men, Ben, Etznab, Akbal

Planets: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Neptune

Affirmation: All Polarize in order to Dream
Stabilizing Intuition
All seal the Input of Abundance
With the Lunar tone of Challenge
All are guided by the power of Vision
Quote: The gift of your cosmic identity is to be a conscious dreamer ~ an inner voyager ~ a disciple of your own intuition ~ an agent of plentitude. As a Blue Night you have the capacity to abide in the sanctuary of self, receiving the rich mysteries within; to embrace the darkness of night and commune with deep internal realms; to appreciate the dream-like nature of reality and comprehend the creative potency of our psyches; to awaken out of the collective spell of materialism, scarcity and greed by being a vessel of gratitude and generosity, inviting us all to celebrate ourselves as heirs of nature’s intrinsic abundance.

As we own the powers of our minds in shaping our lives, we learn to lucidly “dream-up” our truest longings, from the inside, out.

Direction: West: Transforms ~ Chakra: Solar-Plexus ~ Planet: Saturn – Unquote

Tone 2: Lunar

Contemplate these code-words to invoke your key powers:

POLARIZE ~ STABILIZE ~ CHALLENGE

Tone 2 represents the principle of polarity. The gift of your cosmic identity is to access the power of Counter-balance.  Activate your Lunar powers by honoring the yin and yang of life as contrasting aspects of one wholeness; by welcoming challenges as opportunities for strength and growth; by being a bearer of stability; by consciously challenging others – encouraging their expansion and development; by challenging the consensus reality; by being wakeful to the art of constructive opposition; by holding your personal perspective even when it isn’t popular, and yet on the contrary, being able to make dramatic shifts that offer coherence as you feel moved by inner knowing; by striving to integrate your inner polarities, and stabilize your own equilibrium; by understanding obstacles to be necessary creative tension that can open new pathways of evolution; by aspiring to be firmly steadied within the constant pulling of night and day, in breath and out breath, moon and sun, self and world…

The Nourishment of Kundalini Flow – April 14, 2017

The Nourishment of Kundalini Flow – April 14, 2017

 698520

This is the second day of the Song Kra in Nong Khai.

Woke up this morning at 7 a.m. fresh and celebrating my Tzolkin Galactic Birthday.

After breakfast decided to rent a bike and visit some temples and the Village Weaver Handicrafts. Unfortunately there is no longer the Village Weaver Handicrafts Factory anymore.

 

I was drawn once more to visit the Wat Meechai and stayed in the Temple there for awhile as I felt the stirring of the vortex energy flow.

20170413_091340

From there I followed the Kaeworawut Road and got splashed by water twice. It is rather an odd experience the first time it happens. The next Wat I visited was Jamanee along this road. The energy here for me personally was lower than the other Wat and I stayed not very long here. I noticed there were many young monks here.

Amulet from Jamanee

 

I went further by bicycle to Wat Jaan Samakki with its beautiful garden. A very peaceful place to visit. Unfortunately, due to Song Kra the temples were closed but certainly could feel the resonance here. It has four sides of entrance. Some of the entrances are being restored.

There is also a lovely sitting area near the garden.

20170414_102046

I rang the bell three times.

20170414_101731

There were also two parade cars on the premises.

You could also stay the night here as well.

20170414_101923

I was getting thirsty and was close to the coffee shop with bakery at the Nong Khai library to have a nice cup of Green Tee with Lime and a piece of cake personally baked by the owner. The lady is friendly and speaks perfect English. On Sunday, she bakes a fresh bread so I will treat myself to this.

 

After this I went further by bicycle to Prajak Road to visit the Village Weaver Handicrafts store. Talking to the lady she relayed that there is no longer a weaving factory in Nong Khai. There are a couple of ladies who still weave small articles now across the street from there. I bought a small gift of a purse for tooth picks that they had woven to support these ladies.

naamloos (4)

By that open space, it was already 12:00 a.m. and I decided to go back to Mut Mee Guest House. First took off my wet clothes and had a shower. Than inner guidance called to sit down and paint

20170414_135039

“When the Earth is shaken shivering in its roots that is when the Ancient Waters surrenders to the Spiral Movement.

Like DNA and Kundalini resonance Or is it the Stream of its nurturing Nature?

May the fiery flames be enlightened to enter the Sacred Temple of long ago but not forgotten.

May the breath of the Lotus bloom its fragrance for All in this splendorous Love Light.”

In Gratitude for the wonderful camp days of Teenagers and Young Adults of www.opendmindprojects.org till April 11.

For me personal soul it was a great to just relax and transform of all the energetic flows that have been touched during the volunteering of Open Mind Projects and its special camps. I mainly slept of took a nape for some extra hours. I have an allergy (mainly nasal) towards air-condition apparatus and it was a good relief to give this some extra attention today.

 

Had a wonderful fresh green tea with lemon today along with a mango/pineapple cake. Such a treat!

Along with this I also had the famous Thai massages with herbal treatment later in the afternoon. The massage is a deep relief and clearance. It certainly released some of the symptoms of the nasal discomfort and deep muscle ache and pain. I bought some of the Thai herbal balsam which certainly is a great means of self generative energy flow.

Early in the evening a breeze came forward from the Mekong River and ended up in a rain storm with thunder the whole evening. Such a freshness and fragrances came into the atmosphere.

 

The energy flow of today and this evening via the Tzolkin Mayan Calendar is resonating in the Galactic Return of the Year. This will intensify for at least approximately 104 more days and nights.

Along with this there was also pretesting of Teamwork with a volunteer and staff members plus Informational Technology with staff for each camper. A score was given to analyze the abilities of each camper. From this individual score teams were formed so that the teams would reflect a balance within the group. In this way, each person can build up their confidence, motivation, skills etc. for the whole of the camp. Each camper has good qualities within themselves along with contributing to be a team player for the whole of the camp.

 

A dinner was cooked by trainees and campers. We enjoyed the fabulous food at the table and could have some talks together to get to know each other more closely.

In the evening, all the campers gathered outside to hear which team/group they are going to be in along with a map which included rules and regulations of the camp. Also, each was handed out a tag where they could write their name on and could be worn around their neck.

After this was a short break, whereby I played some basketball with a trainee, and later activities were offered to get to know each other more better in a playful manner. Laughs and Fun was shared with each other during the evening.

Than I walked back to Mut Wee Guest House with fond memories of a great day and evening. Much Gratitude.

Monday, April 3, 2017

The morning started by the walk from Mut Wee Garden Guest House to Open Mind Projects. A nice breezy wind flowed along the Mekong River.

Upon arrival Joiy (teacher) send me an email with the camp theme we will be sharing with the campers “Environment/Global Warming” which we had worked on together last Friday together with a Power Point Presentation. A learning and doing teaching worked out step by step together with a video, some active games in between and ending with a debate. This theme will be given every day to a group of teenagers of young adults who will be arriving tomorrow for the camp.

The other themes will be Jobs & Technology, Food & Health and Informational Technology. These will be given by other staff members and volunteers.

 

Than we all had a tasty lunch together. After lunch, we all had a follow up meeting so that everyone could discuss and listen to the feed back from others. It was a open space to listen and understand more about the themes.

Learning by doing

We than came together again, Joiy and I, to finish off the theme along with the question for the debate. Along with this Moe, Joiy and I made the pretest for the campers concerning their knowledge and understanding of the English so that from this teams could be made for the rest of the 11 days. An example of this is translating from Thai certain personal questions written, speaking by answering personal questions plus translating a short story from English into Thai in the written form.

Review of a Volunteer Journey through Nong Khai, Thailand – Part 3

Review of Volunteer Journey in Nong Khai, Thailand – Part 3

 

We had the weekend off from volunteering at Open Mind Projects. For me personally it was an open space to integrate what was all given, received and shared during the first week. Along with this I also needed to get some extra sleep as well due to the jet leg.

 

Saturday, April 1 (this is for me no fool’s day)

We were invited by Sven, Co director of Open Mind Projects, to come to his house and than we (7 of us) all went out for dinner at a lovely restaurant close to his home. Gaweechat (Co Director of Open Mind Projects) ordered various dishes to the liking of everyone. Very tasty some a bit spicy others spicy but so lovely to be in such good company.

 

Sunday, April 2

 

This morning I walked to Salakaewko “Sculpture Park” from the Guest House.

I first visited a Stupa which was lovely seeing it also had many clear quartz crystals in the Temple.

On the way, a lady stopped with her motorbike to give me a ride to the Park. It was such a compassionate gesture to be in such Gratitude.

Here is an outline of the Park written by Julian Wright of Mut Wee Garden Guest House

www.mutwee.com

You can’t come to Nong Khai and not see the very strange Sculpture Park known as Salakaewkoo… World famous, as one one of the most extraordinary artistic creations of South-East Asia, it contains sculptures that rise more than seven stories high! It was built by the mystic shaman Luang Poo Boun Leua Sourirat, who passed away in 1996, after constructing it, with the help of devotees, for more than twenty years.

Luang Poo Boun Leua Sourirat loved snakes, so much so that he believed in the “coming of the age of the snake”. Seeing them as the purest of all animals, having no arms or legs with which to destroy the world, he described himself as being half man, half snake. Was this love of these phallic like animals in some way connected with his reputed homosexuality? He claimed that in his youth he had fallen into a hole in the forest where upon he met the acetic “Kaewkoo” who lived at the bottom of it. “Kaewkoo” taught him all secrets of the underworld, not least about snakes which were the principal inhabitants of that realm. Later, he trained as a Hindu Rishi in Vietnam and mixed Hinduism into his system of beliefs.

 

As a Lao national, he first started to produce sculpture on the riverbank on the Lao side of the Maekong river. But as the communists became more powerful, he became concerned that they may not accept his unorthodox views and so fled to Nong Khai in 1974, where he embarked on the creation of Salakaewkoo; his grandest artistic vision. The name means the “Pavilion of Kaewkoo”.

 

Luang Poo passed away in 1996 aged in his early seventies. He was ill, it was said, from a fall from a ladder up one of his sculptures. But others claimed that he was suffering from some kind of anemia.

 

The main building and incence chapel were built after his death, following his plans and drawings. He always claimed that his followers, who built all the statues, were entirely untrained, but their skill came to them from a divine source. Moreover, he frequently warned that anyone who drank even a sip of water in the park would eventually give to it all their money! However, in the years following his death Salakaewkoo became more and more run down and untidy… until the local government stepped in and decided that his legacy should not be allowed to deteriorate further, so now it is being repaired and restored to its former grandeur.

There are more than one hundred sculptures in the park some of them reaching seven stories up into the sky. Some depict snakes, others images taken from either Theravada or Mahayana Buddhism. Hinduism is well represented too, with images of Shiva and Pavati, Brahma and Vishnu.

The greatest sculpture of all is the Wheel of Life at the far end of the park. As this diagram shows (for a clear printable copy, click on it to download an Adobe pdf version) in Luang Poo’s view, is a cycle of influences and phases, which start at one’s conception and end at one’s death. The Buddhist elements of heat, breath, wisdom and change are represented, as are the stages of birth, aging, suffering and death. Finally, one follows the Lord Buddha over the wall of life to nirvana…

 

On the way, back to the Guest House walking on the Highway once more a lady with a motorbike gave me a short ride.

 

The afternoon I spent sleeping.
