Drumroll Please! I am so excited to announce the birth of a very potent book by my dear friend and colleague Danny Arguetty. Danny has diligently put together a work of art that encompasses and clarifies so many of the teachings we have gleaned from our Tantric teachers over the years as well as insights from many different thought-leaders and traditions! And, he does this in a way that brings these potent and life-affirming teachings right down to Earth, rather than confusing us with esoteric teachings that are not grounded in the delicious and complex reality of being human.
So as a gift to you I am offering a reading from the book and a special discount if you order the book and use the coupon code: Anjali. So sit back, relax, enjoy and SAVOR the beauty of summer with a tasty little morsel of 6. I feel that this book is truly meant to be relished, slowly, like a long and lazy summer afternoon or a refreshing glass of iced tea on the front porch swing.
Here is a little taste of the magic from the Chapter on Shri or INFINITE ABUNDANCE, in honor of this Shri-filled time of year, SUMMER, in Vermont, and don't forget there are 5 more wonderful qualities to explore in this book including: Chit (intelligence), Svatantrya (freedom), Purna (perfection), Kula (collective), and Rahasya (the secret):
'Sri (pronounced “shree”) is the Sanskrit word for beauty, wealth, delight, auspiciousness, affirmation, and prosperity. It is the guarantee of the consciousness of infinite abundance. The Universe has set itself and all of its processes to flourish in a “radically positive and affirming way.“
In the natural world, we can see many examples of living entities who not only endure but actually bloom with abundance. A green shoot grows through a crack in the sidewalk determined to stretch out towards the light. The sun, a near infinite source of power, provides us with 5,000 times as much energy as we utilize from all of our conventional generating sources put together—if we would only fully tap into its potential. A single apple tree produces almost 2,400 apples in one growing season. More examples of nature’s bounty include a sunflower containing hundreds of seeds, the millions of individual sand particles on even a small stretch of beach, an endless parade of snowflakes floating down from a stormy sky, the generosity and love of a mother, the abundance offered up by a vegetable garden, and the array of minerals mined from the earth to help create some of the most popular gadgets of our time.
In the developed world, the word abundance is often tied strictly to the realm of material wealth. Thankfully, the Tantric path invites us into a much deeper contemplation of this term. If the natural world is built on a profound sense of affirmation which allows existence to flourish, how as humans do we intentionally cultivate and ground ourselves in a sense of deep fulfillment that allows us to fully thrive? While most of us could probably generate credible hypotheses of the factors that contribute to true contentment, science is often thought of as the definitive voice. In 1998, the new field of positive psychology emerged with the primary aim of studying and highlighting the factors that contribute to human fulfillment. According to Dr. Martin Seligman, “People who have the most positive emotion, the most engagement, and the most meaning in life are the happiest, and they have the most life satisfaction.” So, then, how do we access this readily available fountain of wellbeing?'
