Patch Parables 6 – The Parable of the 2 Monks

This weeks parable is a DOUBLE FEATURE!! 2 Parables for the price of one! Which is free, so it doesn’t matter!

The first parable is the parable of the 2 monks, a story about holding on and letting go of emotions and thoughts that no longer serve you. The second parable is about a cracked pot who’s self worth was very low, even though there was no reason to be at all. Enjoy!

The Parable of the 84th problem


This weeks parable expands on what we have discussed in the previous parables. The problems in your life change when your perception of them changes, and this parable is about perceiving your problems as a whole, and shifting your understanding about your place in life. Shifting to what? you may ask… to whatever you want, but preferably, much more awesome!

The Parable of Good or Bad



This weeks parable is about the duality of Good and Bad. Who knows what’s good and what’s bad? Things that seem bad may pave a way for something good! And good things could always lead us to something we feel is bad. Ultimately, it cycles back and forth, and its important to learn how to go with the flow, with a masterful awareness that shapes the world around you!

Now, there’s an important misconception about this video which I see often, and it’s very important to know. The awareness of which is the difference between being a masterful creator of your life, and allowing others to manipulate you in whatever way they see fit.

Here’s the jist – In being open to all of the experiences of life, when things are what we consider to be “bad” doesn’t mean it’s a time to not take any action. Regardless of whether things are good or bad, they are always opportunities for forward motion, and recognition about why things are bad in the first place.

What I mean by that is, when something that doesn’t make us feel great, what we would consider “bad”, lets practice embracing it for what it is, instead of pretending that it’s something that it’s not.

Courage is having the fear and doing it anyways. When something happens that makes you want to just say “I abdicate my responsibility” and walk away… see if there’s another possibility, another action, a courageous step into the unknown that might change the vibration into something … better.. don’t be afraid of taking that step.

The first step to doing that, is acknowledging how you feel about it.

Even just allowing the feeling of “Yeah, that kinda sucks… I wish it didn’t happen that way. It’s gonna be difficult to move that vibration forward”. It’s the acknowledgement of the feeling, whatever that feeling may be, which makes all the difference in the world. It allows for clarity and insight to permeate your being and know what the best next-step would be.

Sometimes, creating something grand around the corner takes a little bit of effort, and that’s okay too. If it was easy, we would have done it already :)

Patch Parables 3 – The Parable of the Raft


The Parable of the Raft is the Parable of… how did the Buddha put it? “For getting across, not for retaining”.

Essentially in this story we are talking about is the story of the active action of doing something, and living in the moment. See, in the moment that you are doing something, you do it with the tools and ingredients that you have around you. You act with the principle of getting the thing done, and if you’re thorough – getting it done in the most optimal, functional way. “The right way, the way it aught to be done”.

In this Parable, the man ponders whether he should carry the raft with him, should he need it again later. It’s heavy to carry a whole raft by yourself, especially when you don’t know where or when the next river will come across, and if he’ll even need a raft to cross it safely.

This buddhist philosophy describes a sort of “going with the flow” through our actions. If you don’t need the raft once you’ve crossed the river, you don’t need to bring it with you. What are you really giving up by letting it go? The possibility that maybe you’ll need it eventually?

It’s the same principle as to why most people wouldn’t bring their living room couch with them to work. There are already chairs at work, why would you bring your couch?

Perhaps in another version of the story, there are many men crossing the river together. They could all carry the raft or boat with them if size permitted, taking turns to rest if they knew that it was imperative that they take that raft. Alternatively, they could dismantle it to turn it into firewood for the night, or shelter.

Use the resources that you have available at any given moment, and don’t worry – you are not your external environment. You are not giving up who you are by giving up a material possession.

You are the awareness of the internal, and the external, together.

With love,
Jordan

Patch Parables 2 – The Parable of the Lute

For the maximum wonderful viewing experience – Watch it in HD :)


I feel that life is about living the way you want to, with love and respect for everything all around you. As if Life is a metaphor for beautiful music, and the songs that you play is the melody of the life that you live. Of course, it becomes very hard to do when your instruments are not tuned.

Everything has its own colour and tone. Some of these vibrations mix harmoniously while others combine in discordance, because they are not in tune with each other. You can feel in your heart when you are sad, because the pace slows as if playing the song of your grief. You can feel in your heart when you are happy, because the rhythm of your heart becomes upbeat and bouncy as if playing the song of your joy.

One way you can tell if you are in tune, is just by sensing the way your body makes you feel. Your body is your most important instrument for interfacing with this 3D world, so it’s important to stretch, go for walks, meditate, drink lots of water, and do things like that to help tune your physical body. Don’t forget to also tune your mind. Read things that are insightful, watch things that are inspiring, things that lift you up and make you feel like you’ve never felt before. Do things with others that inspires this connection as well.

Find comfort in the little things that make you happy, feel love and gratitude towards the things that you have or receive, and give love in return to all of those around you. You can have, do, or be anything: but if you’re not tuned to the frequency of your highest awareness… How do you know what you want?

By the way, If you’re interested in the traditional “buddhism” and eastern spiritual practices, I highly recommend you check out this book called “Eastern Body, Western Mind”, which is all about bringing a balance between eastern and western practices in spirituality.

It’s an absolutely fantastical book, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably get a lot out of it.

The Parable of the Sandcastles

This week were starting a new series, Patch Parables. This one’s a little shorter than Spirit Science, but the messages are just as powerful, if not even more thought pondering than SpiSci. Don’t worry, Spirit Science will be back in good time! But first, let’s talk philosophy on life.

This weeks Parable – The Parable of the Sandcastles. An ancient Buddhist Parable which I read in the pocket “teachings of buddha” book I bought when I passed through Santa Barbara.  Continue reading
