The Great Bell Chant

 Recently I heard a Tibetan Buddhist monk speak. In this radiant presence I was sleepy, so relaxed, I even said I was bored. I was not in awareness. He had a beautiful smile, and dimples, his voice was velvety. he spoke on…..oh wait….I don’t remember. Why? I was not in awareness.  However I was affected. Over the next couple of days I would stop and reflect on things he had said, his energy had inspired me. Even that night he said one thing that I needed to hear, he said and I paraphrase, “Say that you are having a really good life, but you do not do good deeds. Like money in the bank, if not replenished the good karma runs out.” I was like dang! I have a pretty good life, I don’t think I do enough good deeds. I am not a self-sacrificing person. Maybe I should be? lol

Last week I got stopped for speeding on the freeway. I was cool and apologized for driving 15 miles over the limit. I did not get a ticket but a written warning. So now I must be very “mindfull with the foot pressure on the petal.” I was very thankful.

So if you feel like joining in the “Let’s Go Retro” blogging challenge please do! It can be a reblog, but doesn’t have to be. You can write a “Re” lated post with a “Re” word theme. Making Mercury Retrograde a positive experience for us all. Oh, and I created a Participation badge, it is on the tool bar <<<< see it. Please take it and display it if you wish to. ❤

    Thanks for the chant and the amazing mandala art ❤ ❤
    I may add another post for the challenge, we shall see. I have a soundbath on Sunday. The sound healer has returned from Santa Fe to live once again in my area, yea! Very excited for more healing. The last time I was on fire ( on many levels!)

    Sound is so powerful, more than we know 😉

    • We have one tomorrow night for the full moon but not sure I am going, I went a week ago. Please contribute as many times as you like sister. ❤ Glad you liked the mandala and the chant. 😀 ❤

  2. _/1\_ Thich Nhat Hahn’s voice… is so welcome. Great choice… 🙂 it put a smile on my face. Blessings & Peace, thanks for contributing to mine here. Namaste.

  3. Such a beautiful chant. What a wonderful way to start the day. Thank you, Sindy. It’s funny – I space out all the time in situations like that. I find that I was somewhere else (or asleep). I think sometimes the energy takes us to a different plane and we get it through other channels and remember some of the content later. Not sure it is about not being aware. Also synchronistic about the speeding. I also got pulled over a couple of weeks ago and was blessed with a warning only. I told him he was an angel. Thanks for the reminder about doing more good. My karma has been great lately, but I do want to always try to do more good. I am officiating a wedding today. That chant this morning puts me in just the right place, and the beautiful mandala. Thank you again. I will contribute to the “re” challenge in some way.

  4. Aw Mary! Your kind words of support make my day! Thanks for your feedback on my monk encounter. At first I thought we went to hear monks chanting, so I was disappointed but what I got from it was ultimately of great value. We were blessed not getting a speeding ticket, that would have been costly. lol

    Have a great ceremony. The couple you are officiating for chose well picking you. ❤ I have been ordained for almost 30 years and have never once officiated. lol

    Can't wait for your contribution.

  5. So pleased you got let off with a warning SIndy.. and living in gratitude brings us into being mindful for what we have… 🙂

    I will think on the Retro Challenge… as I Re-Think what I could contribute… xxx ❤
