TRANQUILLUS (PEACE)

TRANQUILLUS (PEACE)

Level: Easy

 

Tranquillus is peace.

 

Being at peace, calm, tranquil, one can hear oneself clearer and be less attacked from external.  The more chilled out you are the less stressed you are.

 

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear."

Baba Ram Dass (1931-),

American spiritual leader

 

Be stable by yourself, self-contained.  Focus on your meditative awareness.

 


Be at as low an energy level as possible.

 

Be aware of Attacks from sounds, smells, your possessions, your environment, your mindset, your group and more.

 

Showing a level of aggression towards the general public in cities is often the best way to fuel your energetic shield.  However, you can't be aggressive.  A peaceful attitude is a necessity.  To be at peace one's vibe must be of peace.  We exist in synchronicity.  Bear no ill will towards Society.  Some say you get back what you give out times three.  In megopoli there's a heap of aspects that might deserve your hatred; violence, BDSM, perversion, criminality.  These are surely still to be hated but should not be leading your thoughts.  Focus on being at peace, especially when at home or among friends & family.

 

Beware of unchecked anger leading to a propensity to violence.  Sometimes this is an irrational emotion.  An external, invading energy, an Attack.  It must be avoided at all costs.  Violence is rarely a solution.  Without fully thinking things through this can be immensely damaging to your life, and to others.  An interaction which you may take forever to forgive yourself for.

 

Go out of your way to avoid stepping on a snail let alone a cat.  Care enough to give of your attention to stop you being a needless killer.

 

Inner peace is linked to outer peace.  Outer peace, with external, is best achieved through deserving and attaining respect.  Peace is achieved if external leaves you alone, which is achieved through your showing of strength.  If you're not left alone then group energies are more played.  Don't get into a power struggle dynamic.  Despite external's desire steadfastly maintain a view of independence. This inhibits the BDSM group dynamic dominating you into submission.  It removes aggression from the situation.

 

There must be a valid reason for any action.  Vengeance is generally pointless.  One has no reason to act in retrospect.  If attacking removes an aggressor that may harm one in the future then it's worthwhile but to attack for historic reasons alone is pointless and against your survival.

 

Being generally peaceful is different from being a pacifist.

 

Can you imagine doing nothing for an hour?  Where would your mind go?  How about for a whole day?  A week, a month, a year?  It's said that the bored are the boring.  You'd retreat inwards.  You'd retreat to yourself and to your memories.  How better to find yourself and understand your life to date?

 

To quote from Scorsese's (1942-) Kundun (1997) movie written by Melissa Mathison (1950-2015) (who also wrote E.T. (1982) and was once married to Harrison Ford (1942-)) about the 14th Dalai Lama (1935-) of Tibetan Buddhism, "First one understands that he causes most of his own suffering needlessly.  Second he looks for the reasons for this in his own life.  To look is to have confidence in one's own ability to end the suffering.  Finally, a wish arises to find a path to peace.  For all beings desire happiness.  All wish to find their purer selves."

 

The end never justifies the means.  Method always matters.

 

It's possible to get above language.  A mental space where you don't need your mental chatter, without words sounded out in your head.  Words have an immense power that's difficult to appreciate until one can be without them.  As mentioned elsewhere in this book, psychedelic plants can help with a brief enlightenment in this area.

 

"Well there's so many sinking,

Now you gotta keep thinking,

You can make it through,

These waves."

Blue (1971) song by Joni Mitchell,

Written by Joni Mitchell
