Is nothing sacred?

Recently I re-watched the movie  Avatar.  

What struck me most this time was the stark contrast between the mind of the beautiful blue native Na’vi characters of the movie, and that of the humans.  The Na’vi connected and communicated with animals and trees, lived in great respect of the land and of each other, recognizing the life-light in each other as they greeted with “I see you.”  The intruding earthlings, on the other hand, were endlessly wrought with their own selfish desires for science, research, survival, revenge, money and power – and they were willing to fight with and even kill each other to get such things.

As the movie went on I found myself wincing every time this was revealed on deeper and more corrupt and disgusting levels.  The single word that stood out was: Sacredness.  I began to ask myself, “Why has humanity lost it’s sense of the sacred?”  Only days before watching this movie I watched the documentary The 11th Hour and that, unfortunately, was not a hollywood movie.  It was a real-life depiction of what we have done and continue to do to our world.

I want to recover the sacred.  It has to begin within our hearts.  It’s time to feel our Oneness again and treat each other accordingly.  The hope is in the hands of the people who feel this.  Perhaps it begins with gratitude.  A little more gratitude than yesterday.  A little more love – towards myself and others.

I want to live in a world that honors what is sacred.   What can be more sacred than pure life?  Nature is beautiful. The Earth is magnificent.  But what touches me even more sometimes is human beings love for that beauty.  The fact that human beings love nature and think the Earth is beautiful – I believe that’s where we can see the recognition of the sacredness in all people – across all races and religions.

Ilchi Lee often talks about recovering “spirit”. There is an aliveness sleeping inside us.  We have allowed it to sleep for too long.  I feel a longing in my heart to wake it up.  I believe that Brain Education is the practice that can wake up the sense of the sacredness inside of people.  Brain Education is about being 100% alive.  It’s about turning your emotion into sensibility — being able to feel yourself and others and therefore recover the natural healing power that flows between us.  That is the same power that gives us joy and fills our heart with love and our eyes with sparkles.

I hope that this post can be food for reflection for anyone who comes across it 🙂

  1. Hi Danielle,
    I love what you have written here. What you said about there being an aliveness sleeping inside us really resonated with me. I am nineteen years old and just now starting to live my “adult life.” Now more than ever, I have a hunger to learn things and to know more about the world. I want to hit the ground running and live life to its fullest. Nonetheless, I feel the sleeping aliveness you speak of. I like what you said about there being a sacredness inside all of us. I want to get to the point where I can wake up that sense of sacredness, but I can’t. I don’t know how to. It’s like there is this girl inside my head telling me that I need to focus more on myself and on my spiritual health, but I am always too busy to physically slow down and allow my mind to take over what is going on inside me.

    I am about to start my second year of college and couldn’t agree more that education IS about being 100% alive. I feel like it has to do with the saying about how knowledge is power. I am not referring to academic knowledge here but rather to the idea that truly knowing, understanding, and loving yourself can lead to a life of love and joy. I think the knowledge I am describing is the healing process you mentioned. Right now, I feel as though what keeps my aliveness from waking up is my struggle to turn my “emotions into sensibility.” To be honest, I’m not 100% sure I know what that line means, but here is what I come up with based on my interpretation. At this point in my life I feel a great deal of confusion. I constantly feel like I am a vortex of emotions (pardon the corniness :P). There are so many changes happening in my life that I can barely keep up! Consequently, I feel I have shut down emotionally, and it is keeping me from being able to feel myself and others. I’ve blocked myself off from others and myself, but it has only led to further frustration. My inability to cope with things without shutting out what I feel makes me fear I will turn permanently bitter. As much as I want to wake those feelings up, something inside me tells me I will only be hurt. This thought frustrates me so much, though because I am a people person. I LOVE interacting with others. It’s in my innate personality to want to connect with and help people. Do you have any suggestions on what can be done to get past this block and back on the path of healing? I want to wake up that fascinating aliveness you speak of! 🙂

    I am sorry I have written so much here. I am so grateful to you for having made this post. As you can see, it really hit home. You allowed me to pause everything around me, and truly reflect (which is what I had been lacking for a long time). Wow, Danielle! What you have here is amazing. I just recently discovered your website and am excited to keep looking at other posts. I promise my other comments won’t be as long. 🙂

    Best,
    Jessica

    • Thank you for your open sharing Jessica. I am happy to meet you, and to know that you have enjoyed the blog and it has been beneficial to you in some way.
      I am most happy to know that there is a bright and enthusiastic Soul out there like you! If there are many 19 year olds with a beautiful mind as yours then I feel hope for the future of this world 🙂
      As for opening the block…..well in all honestly I had my opening through the Finding True Self Workshop. That was my big moment of breakthrough and ever since then it has just been a matter of cultivating and developing what I found with diligence and sincerity. If it’s not possible to attend that workshop (I don’t know where you live) then perhaps starting with 1) Doing the exercises from my videos that are posted in the “service” section, 2) Reading a good book like “The Living Tao Book”. 3) You might also want to check out some Louise Hay or Eckhart Tolle videos on youtube. It sounds like you need to deepen your connection with yourself. Also, please friend me on Facebook! Soon I plan to start a place where I post some videos and webinars on the topics of healing, growth and self-development. So, between the blog and Facebook I will be sharing more about that soon hopefully in the not-too distant future.
      Again, I am so happy to hear your beautiful thoughtful comments! I wish you the best on your path! Love ~ Danielle
