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.
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
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."

the COLLECTED WORKS OF CHOGYAM TRUNGPA
if we could always take "destiny calls" or "difficult"
times as a gift? What if we could meet these times as well as we meet
the "good" times? How would it shifted the entire process
and allowed us to go through every moment with mercy, love and
compassion not only for ourselves but for others. Not to mention the
amount of gray hair, which anxiety brings!
that no matter how lonely you feel on this path, you are not alone!
There are others who are next to you, behind and in front of you. We
all - the mirror and teachers to each other. Yes, you should do your
own work, but we are all a part of great nation, for we are all here
to do that." Journey To The Heart
