For thousands of years there have existed secret esoteric traditions —
including a heritage of Arktida, the continent under the Polar Star.
That tradition of Northern Veddik Lineages has used integrative
practices based on a direct perception of the world’s energy vibrations.
The consciousness, power and knowledge of the members of that ancient
culture far exceed anything presently known.
The heritage of Arktida holds practices which awaken deep wisdom and
inner goodness. Now in this time of deep and fast changes in nature and
society, that ancient knowledge will help people to open an inner source
to transform themselves, minimize conflict and suffering, maximize
their good qualities, and harmonize their lives with the cosmic order.
"The happenings of life are manifestations of energy. This energy in
the situations of life is a very powerful teacher. If you go too far, in
the sense of not being receptive enough to learn from the experience of
life, if you ignore this experience and go too far with the extreme
emotional excitement of ego, then sooner or later you are going to be
pulled back. This might take the form of accident, illness or disaster —
any sort of chaos. Whereas if you are able to see the first signal that
you have lost touch with the life situation as teacher, then you will
be able to tune yourself back into it. That is guru as environment."
From "Explanation of the Vajra Guru Mantra" in Volume Five of the COLLECTED WORKS OF CHOGYAM TRUNGPA
if we were always able to look at the "challenges" or difficult times
as gifts? What if we could meet those times in the same way we meet
"good" times? How would that shift the process and allow us to move
through each moment with grace, love and compassion not only for
ourselves and but others? Not too mention the mass quantity of gray
hairs that worrying brings!!!
that no matter how alone you may feel on this path, you are not. There
are others who are traveling beside you, behind and in front of you.
We are all mirrors and teachers for each other. Yes, you must do the
work on your own but you are part of a great tribe, for we are in this
together." Journey to the Heart
