A Spring New Moon.

I’ve been observing how people write more and more about enlightenment, yoga, meditation, food, family and good politics.

I remember the resistance some of us used to get whenever we touched these kinds of topics.

“The spirit” debate made many uncomfortable and it certainly was not “table talk,” unless it was in the middle of a Star Wars conversation. Today “the force” seems to be “the talk.” Books, T.V. shows, magazines—even marketing—are using the “higher self” as a communication medium.

As all intelligent people understand, the media makes soup with people’s hopes and fears, and also plays a huge part in the molding of generations, trends and emotional growth, bringing chaos to order…so order can be set again.

The big puppeteers spread their ambitions through the masses and all the community can do is either be part of the production, or pray that those in control are in tune with the elements of true enlightenment, in sync with its universal values, and of service to humankind.

We hope and we fear, but our only effective action belongs to the “Self.” It is what we say, what we think, and what we do individually that really matters to our own evolution.

First, I make a choice so I can take a chance to consciously surf change. Ideally our words, our thoughts, and our actions are one and the same, so the integrity of our manifestation into the world is clear.

Clarity is where it’s at. When I am clear, no layers of dysfunctional behavior take over and my reality becomes truthful—and “truth lasts for a hundred years.” Then I am trustworthy, and the confidence to be me overcomes all obstacles. No judgement or expectations play a part in the story. When I am clear and truthful it really does not matter what I think or expect. It is just what it is. Things are just what they are. Now I can steer my life boat in perfect tandem with my “spirit.”

So, yes, it is wonderful to see how much everyone cares now about talking “green,” about been a “yogi,” about becoming a “healer,” about “walking the talk,” about “manifesting your quantum leap.” It is nice to see that after centuries “you are what you eat” is taking a stand in our children’s education. How great that “sex” is becoming a “tantra” and the lover’s journey to the soul. How amazing that politics are realizing the power of “hope” if not at the very least in its “word vibrational force.” How beautiful that musicians are writing music again within the “sphere,” paying attention to its vibrational properties of frequency in sound and directing it towards healing and awareness of being. How wonderful is to see mothers carrying their child, feeding them breast milk instead of corn syrup formula, keeping them close to the heart to nurture their future nurturing of this Earth, staying at home instead of losing themselves in the game of “identity.” It is nice to see men caring for their “pack” and embracing again the concept of family because “family is the foundation of society.”

So when I open elephant and I read all levels of awareness, all kinds of debates, all sorts of people trying to change the world with the certainty that they have found the “absolute truth” about whatever topic is been discussed, I remind myself that nothing in the universe is “absolute” and everything is relative to everything else.

I pray to stay humble, so my own opinions stay still as they change with nature. I remind myself that we are one universe, that I live in planet Earth and that I am…changing.

May all beings be happy.

About Yesica Pineda

My name is Yésica Pineda-Moreno, though some people call me Yeye. I was born and raised in Mexico City. My mom and dad are wonderful people who raised me to believe that loving-kindness, peace of body, mind and soul ~ real happiness ~ are the only worthwhile goals in life, the rest is just history. At the age of 20, I was chosen a Mexican Musical Talent (Valores Juveniles = American Idol) between thousands of young people in the country. Such opportunity gave me the chance to travel to The United States and meet incredible famous people from whom I've learned plenty about the hard work involved in the public life and the challenges it represents to our spiritual growth. I recorded my solo album with 10 time’s Grammy winner engineer Rafa Sardina rafasardina.com, and the talented songwriter Rafa Esparza-Ruiz. You can find it in any digital store by searching "Yeye Organic Pop". When I thought there was nothing else to be achieved, I found Yoga, or Yoga found me. In 2000, I started training with Bryan Kest and educated myself in his school of Power Yoga, which eventually led me to the practice of Vipassana meditation with teacher S.N.Goenka dhamma.org, training which I consider my foundation. For more information about my Yoga Practice visit yogichocolate.com My current music project is called Planetary Moods ~ Pop Sanskrit and the exploration of different frequencies resonance. You can hear my music on on myspace Listen at our website Planetary Moods.
