Passion and Beingness (by Valeria Moore)

Today’s article is by Valeria Moore, author of Healer Wisdom and global managing director of Reference Point Therapy.

Over the last few weeks I have felt a ripple in the collective.  I could not put words to the feeling until I did today’s morning writing.  I received an email from a person describing a lack of passion toward an endeavor.   I thought about the words.   I, also, did not feel the passion the person described as missing.  I did feel an inner calm, peace, bliss and a knowing.

How does passion relate to beingness?  What is the role of passion in beingness? Passion is not beingness.  Passion is desire.  Passion or the lack of passion is the fear of not having a purpose.  Passion gives the illusion of having a purpose.

This wonderful article was written by RPT Teacher Ben Ralston, of the international Prem Center, in Slovenia. Ben, an Englishman, runs yoga retreats for international audiences, and is available for both yoga and RPT classes and sessions throughout Europe.

Ben continues our series on Beingness with this wonderful explanation of where Beingness fits within the Yogic tradition.

By Ben Ralston:

According to Yogic philosophy, the essence of a human being is ”Satchitananda”, meaning absolute existence, absolute knowledge, and absolute bliss.

The “Beingness” of Chocolate (by Donna Townley)

We continue our series on Beingness with the first in a new set of articles written by our Level 3 graduates.  Today’s is a serious yet lighthearted contribution from Donna Townley in the WA, USA.

I happen to like the way my jeans fit and I find that the more healing classes I attend, the more challenging this becomes.

I am quite sure that a state of Beingness does not *require* chocolate, but somehow it is massively consumed at all trainings by everyone. Hmmm.  The science of chocolate? Do we humans *need* chocolate at a DNA level now to survive and evolve? I think so.

An introduction to Beingness

In the previous blog article (“Where is God?”) we introduced the concept of finding the divinity within, instead of looking upstairs or outside for your source of inspiration.

Many people do not know how to see their divinity.  When they look in the mirror they see their flaws, not their perfection.

In our view this tragedy is due to what we call duality.  The duality in question is separation – the fact that for several thousand years we have been taught to see ourselves as smaller than, or somehow separate to, the Source of all that is.

Even healing techniques that claim to heal this duality make the unfortunate error of teaching their disciples how to “go up” and to “connect”.  Our brain works on language – you cannot be One with something that you have to “go up” and “connect to”.

Where is God?

In our most recent blog I made the claim that we’ve taken the “magical thinking” out of healing.

What I meant by that was that there’s no longer any need to believe in anything outside of yourself.  For example, there’s no need to believe in an all powerful imaginary “source” from whence healings come.

If you are new to the world of complementary and alternative healings, this shouldn’t be a big deal.  Why should you need a source of healing outside of yourself?  There’s no obvious reason for it.

In practice, every technique that comes under the banner of “spiritual healing” or “energy healing” will teach you that healing comes from some higher place.  Common out-dated phrases include “God is the healer, not you,” and “we are just the channel”.

Today we explain what’s so wrong about this old-fashioned attitude.

Launch of our new blog!

Welcome to the Reference Point Therapy (“RPT”) blog. This is a companion site to our main website, www.ReferencePointTherapy.com.

On this blog you will find regular updates and articles about RPT.   The blog is a place where you can leave your own questions and comments. It is a place where you can interact directly with the founders and leading teachers of RPT.

What happened to your old blog?

Our old blog was retired in August 2009 for many reasons. It had outlived its purpose (which was to launch a new course back in March 09). It has also contributed in some respects to drama and duality.  Because RPT emerged from the ashes of another modality, the original incarnation of RPT (entitled “Healing That Works”) was somewhat controversial – it was launched off the back of our arguments about why our previous modality didn’t work. Whilst our claims were true and honest, we felt that it wasn’t really the right energy with which to launch a new modality.
