Discernment is a virtue


Discernment is a great achievement, to intuitively know how to be compassionate with detachment, and when attachment contributes to grief and suffering. The ability to detach from attachments which contribute to suffering requires the belief in Oneness and inter-connectedness and impermanence.
The deluded belief in separateness and ego-dominance( permanence) creates isolation, grief and excessive pain and suffering.

Discernment is a virtue, which sets the stage for accurate perception and correct expression. It is the foundation of the eight-fold path which includes correct perception, thought, actions, and lifestyle. The removal of inappropriate and unwholesome actions from our behaviours is the consequence of proper discernment.

One of the greatest life lessons is the learning to discern the boundary between desire and craving; between compassionate empathy and emotional co-dependency.
The presence of suffering in our lives results from attachment to thoughts and emotions which result from attachment, cravings, and loss.

Learning to remain empathetic yet detached in the face of abandonment, rejection, and loss is the principal teaching of this and every lifetime.
Once we have learned this lesson we are ready to ascend to greater levels of awareness and cosmic consciousness and entrusted with greater contributions of service to Humanity.
Discernment cannot be taught, it must be experienced and practiced.

If one examines the infinity symbol the twisted circle into two apparent halves symbolizes the spiritual life and the physical life and the intersection of the two apparent halves is the transition zone we name physical  birth and death.

About Pranic Roger

I have been developing my healing skills since 1998 and have been on a personal purification journey and free from substance dependency since 1989 following twenty-three years of dependency to nicotine and alcohol. I operate a fee-for-service healing facility and utilize deep-tissue massage techniques and pranic healing techniques to remove blockages to healing and surrender, and expulsion of negative energy thought forms and entities from the body, chakras, and aura. My website is: http://www.healingmassage.ca. The secondary website for more information about energy work is :http://www.pranichealing.ca, and www.pranichealingmb.com That's what goes on when I'm not outside nurturing my garden which occurs from April to November.
