Ending an old chapter in your life affords an opportunity to begin a new one.  This may not be easy, but it will eventually work out, keep the faith.  Don’t look back if you were forced to make a break with the past.  Realize it was inevitable, no matter how painful the incident was, and look ahead hopefully.

Calmness can grow into equanimity during life’s turbulence.  Enhancing our focus and clarity lets us access more of our mind’s true potential issues or deeper insights.  Sensing more strongly the impermanent nature of things helps us reframe breaking up with our loved ones as a part of life rather than some overwhelming tragedy.  This frees our spirit and opens up other possibilities for finding our own directions.

You need to hold on to everything. You can use this time to review plans, refine projects in progress, or rethink your position on vital issues.  Don’t do anything you may later regret.  Look within to find your own Inner Light, and the immortal you within the universe.

Stay in contact with friends and loved ones who depend on you.  Faith in a properly working universe brings order in daily life.  This is a moment of peace and unity.  Relax with family and share contentment around the hearth.  When you accept everything, your life becomes cheerful.

The universe is vast, no part of it is irrelevant.  You can best serve the universe by expressing and fulfilling yourself and your own potential.  Your being the best that you can be will help to enrich the lives of everyone.

 

Our journey, the path to enlightenment, is not linear.  Our journey begins before we manifested in physical form here on this planet.  And, it will not cease when the physical representations of us are no longer capable of interacting with this world.  We will return to where we came from — the universe, which is the source of all things.  The cycles repeat endlessly.

Communicating with Kuan Yin

Let Kuan Yin comfort you and assist you with your spiritual needs, and guide you to a better way of life. You could communicate with Kuan Yin whenever you wish without reading her poems.  Start by creating a sacred environment.  This can be indoors or out.  If it is a room in your home, elimiate clutter and clean the room.  Eat lightly and avoid any artificial stimulants before seeking contact Kuan Yin.  Make sure that you will not be interrupted for at least thirty minutes.  Sit dowm comfortably, close your eyes and think of some of the blessings in your life.

After a few minutes, think about your concern.  Picture Kuan Yn in your mind and mentally talk through your problem, just as if you were discussing it with a close friend.  While you are doing this, you may sense Kuan Yin’s presence.  You might notice a slight change on the temperature of the room.  You might find yourself enjoy a silent convesation with Kuan Yin.  You might hear her quiet voice or feel a warmth in the area of your heart.  Then, take three slow, deep breaths and open your eyes.  Carry on the confidence and inner peace with you that your problem would soon be resolved.

 

Now, I use the following Kuan Yin’s sayings to finish this Kuan-Yin Oracle:

Respect yourself and you will respect others.

Be compassionate towards yourself

and you will be compassionate towards others.

Love yourself and you will love all sentient beings.

It all begins with you and ends with the realization that

there is no difference between self and other.

————————

We are born, we live, we age, we die.

We touch the same earth, we see the same sky.

We dream, we hope, we succeed, we fail and still we try.

We are not different, you and I.

– – – – – – – – – –

Each new breath is a gift to be cherished.

It is not a certainty or a reward.

Each new breath is a responsibility to be taken seriously.

We must not use it to bring harm to others.

Each new breath is an opportunity to make a difference.

To show compassion and to live life without regret.

Each new breath is a blessing.

Use it wisely and others will be blessed as well.
