St. Rose’s Garden exists like a sidewalk-crack dandelion, mildly nostalgic of a ’70s California hippie commune. Everything about it—from the way it hides nestled in the
backyard space between Belmont
and Cambreleng Avenuues, to its wildly overgrown beds, to the way students eat side-by-side on the weed-cushioned ground. A subtle tone of rebel against institution and hierarchy. @arielle_brender by @kquinlisk LINK IN BIO!! #ebxdaily#bronx#suatainability
Starting to feel a lil’ cold coming, so I’m breaking out one of my favorite cold remedies! Gonna nip that sucker in the bud. Just a simple mojo bag of carnelian, aventurine, and clear quartz. These babies take care of me on the energetic level while I take care of the Physical. What are your go to remedies?
I was amazed when the sun lit up the canyon. Mesa Arch blew my mind. I share more about this location on my blog in “the trip of a lifetime Part 2”. Link in bio. If you have questions about this hit me up! Seeing these spots with @fordcanada was seriously the best!
The Journey into Self and the Mystical Path
The Lost Self
From childhood we begin hiding our inner self away. We learn to adapt and survive in the outside world. Our families and peers teach us socially acceptable behaviour. Our educational system teaches us the technical and social skills we need to sustain a material life. As adults we are thrust into a society geared towards materialism and maintaining the status quo.
Rarely, especially in the early formative years, are we taught inner development; with an emphasis on intuition, the subconscious mind, independent thinking, self esteem, self-confidence, psychic or inner spiritual growth. Yet despite all this the inner self does remain alive in everyone and many are ready to heed its call. That is why the Rosicrucian Order is in existence today and has been for centuries, offering people a way to realize their own infinitely powerful and divine nature.
Just what is meant when we use the word "mysticism." A proper definition has always been elusive or vague. For the record, mysticism can be defined as an experience where one personally knows, through direct knowledge, the source of all being. Many call this source God; others, the Divine or the Cosmic. The point is, the experience is noetic. We know, not believe through faith or know only through scientific observation, but we simply and truly know... The art of mysticism can be learned. The work is to initiate the student to the techniques where mystical knowledge can be readily attained. This knowledge when properly accessed is ultimately rational.
In the end mysticism isn't a belief. It is simply an art of knowing. The mystical experience transcends nature. Often the person will receive a feeling that far surpasses anything which could be conveyed by words. Furthermore, this insight, devoid of ego, is thoroughly comprehended as truthful. Make time for Self Development & Spiritual Growth... Search Deeper with YOUR darkness... then SHINE with TRUTH. ✨🙏🐉
