FLOWERING HEART BLESSING

A non-religious transfer of Grace for Healing, Higher Consciousness,
Flowering of the Heart & Awakening the Divine Within

"However awakened you are, has your heart flowered? Are you kind?

The outer world is a reflection of the inner world. To change the world, you must begin with yourself, with the flowering of the heart.

When we begin to accept ourselves exactly as we are, experiencing the full content of each moment without conflict or resistance & join together around the world with others whose hearts are flowering, the Light of Infinite Love will flood the Earth!" - Michael Milner

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein

A global shift in Human Consciousness is taking place! People everywhere are awakening into higher states of consciousness, and their hearts are flowering with unconditional love and compassion. They are realizing that all feelings of separation are an illusion: separation from others, separation from nature, separation from the Source, from Spirit. They are awakening to directly experience living in connection, in unity with each other and with all that is, including the Divine Presence. When we awaken from the illusion of separate existence and experience reality as it is, we are filled with bliss.

When we experience unity within ourselves, conflict, resistance and suffering end. When we experience unity with others, strife and war cease. When we experience unity with nature, we no longer do damage to the earth or the environment. When we experience unity with Spirit, with the Divine, religious conflict ends, and our hearts flower with unconditional love.

Awakening and the flowering of the heart is a gift of Grace. It may come after years of seeking and spiritual practice. It may come for no evident reason to those who aren’t even looking for it. It may come suddenly or gradually over many years. Whenever it comes, it is a gift. The gift of awakening and the flowering of the heart is a Blessing that can be given by the Divine through direct transference of consciousness and energy from one person to another. This Blessing exists in one form or another in all the great mystical traditions of the world. It is called deeksha, shaktipat, initiation, the gift of the Holy Spirit and many other names.

Flowering Heart Blessing is one such transfer of Grace. It comes directly from Spirit and does not belong to any religion or belief system. It doesn’t matter what you believe or don’t believe, if you are an agnostic or an atheist. The Flowering Heart Blessing will support whatever path or tradition you follow. It costs nothing. There is nothing to join, no rules, no beliefs to accept, no teacher or hierarchy to submit to. It is a free gift from the Divine, a transfer of sacred intelligent energy for healing, higher consciousness, flowering of the heart and awakening the Divine within you. Come, experience the power of Blessing.

We live at a time when anyone who offers themselves as an instrument of Grace can instantly experience the Power of Blessing flow through them to others. It doesn’t require any special initiation. The all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present Spirit is equally available to anyone, anywhere, anytime. You are the vortex of power. Your spiritual heart is the temple of transformation. The Divine within you, your Higher Self, already living in your heart is the Teacher you seek. It is time to awaken to your true mastery, to remember who you are, to awaken the Divine within.

Sacred Sanctuary Meditation with Charles Robinson at Flowering Heart

Tonight, Sept 21 & Every Friday, 7-9 PM Sacred Sanctuary Meditation With Charles Robinson Spiritual Teacher, Guide & Creator of Kai Chi Do At Flowering Heart Center, Clearwater, FL http://floweringheart.org/SacredSanctuary.htm Sacred Sanctuary is a guided journey into the deep inner resources of our consciousness. It provides you with the opportunity to take a break from the challenges of day-to-day existence and seek refuge in a quiet and expansive state of being. We refer to the inner voice or the inner Being as the teacher. It is the part of us that’s guiding us in each moment back into harmony and back into peace. Every journey is to find the Sacred Sanctuary within you, to find the Divine, to find Source. The journey is always different. The destination, when we get there, is always the same. Every Friday, 7-9 PM Flowering Heart Center 300 Feather Tree Drive Clearwater, FL 33765 $11 per person About Charles Robinson His students call him "Sensi" (Japanese "Teacher"). Charles Robinson is a teacher, a guide, and the creator of Kai Chi Do. The inspiration for Kai Chi Do came to him while he was leading a meditation group back in the early 1970’s. Yes – he was teaching meditation in the 1970’s. But Charles wasn’t a hippie. In fact, he never has fit neatly into any category. Charles was raised as a Catholic altar boy, took Buddhist vows, married a Jewish Unitarian, and named their daughter a Hindu prayer. He studied martial arts, but developed Kai Chi Do as a non-martial art. Charles hangs with suits but he dresses in a gi. Charles is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in Education from Seton Hall University. His purpose, in every aspect of his life and work, is to help people recover their connection to Source, self and others. He helps people to move forward by meeting them exactly where they are. Charles’ wife, Susan, is his one-person administrative team, so if you follow their events or sign up for any of their services, you’re sure to bump into her juggling details. Susan is also a great role model for doing Kai Chi Do at your own pace.

NEW CLASS BEGINNING Taoist Qigong & Meditation (Taoist Elixir Style)

Taoist Elixir Style (Dao Dan Pai)* MEDITATION, QIGONG, INTERNAL ALCHEMY (Neigong) ENERGY HEALING (Neigong Qi Liao) Taught by Venerable Reverend Michael Milner Hé Tiān Dì Dàoshì (合天地 Union of Heaven & Earth 道士 Way Teacher) Abbot, Huā Xīn Guǎn (花 心 觀 Flowering Heart Temple) NEW CLASS BEGINNING! EVERY WEDNESDAY 6-7:20 PM Flowering Heart Center 300 Feather Tree Drive Clearwater, FL 33765 $15 week/$50 month Dao Dan Pai (Taoist Elixir Style) Meditation, Ch'i Kung (Qigong) and Neigong (Internal Alchemy) represents the most complete and balanced system that I am aware of for awakening the inner dragon (kundalini or serpent power), refining and raising it to the highest levels of development, safely, while remaining fully functional, grounded and integrated. This is accomplished through simultaneously cultivating and carefully balancing both the rising and descending energies (yin and yang), moving the kundalini energy up the back and down the front of the body in a complete circle like the snake swallowing its tail (also known as the microcosmic orbit). This is an instant solution to almost all negative side-effects related to the raising of kundalini without sufficient grounding and balance. A tree can only extend its branches as high into the heavens as its roots go deep into the earth, otherwise, the first strong wind that comes along will topple the tree. I have taught this system for more 45 years and have found it to be a sublime blessing for healers, light-workers, yogis, meditators, and anyone who works with energy. It is a complete internal energy yoga that cultivates the three treasures: Ching (sexual essence, kundalini), Ch'i (vital breath, prana) and Shen (spirit, pure awareness). Training also includes deep meditation similar to Chan or Zen and learning to use the energy to heal. My training began when I was 18 years old under Chinese Taoist Grand Master, Share K. Lew, the lineage holder of Dao Dan Pai (Taoist Elixir Style) who was trained at the legendary Huang Lung Guan (Yellow Dragon Monastery) on the top of sacred Luo Fu Shan (shan, mountain) in Guangdong, a Taoist temple famous for its kung fu, Qigong and medical/healing/herbal knowledge. Meditation, both moving and quiet sitting, is at the very heart of this path that leads to our natural human state, "wu wei", which means spontaneous effortless action, naturally doing the right thing at the right time without thought or effort. As my Taoist Master taught me, "Taoist way... not forced". Details at: http://floweringheart.org/TaoistArts.htm http://floweringheart.org/Taoism.htm http://floweringheart.org/TaoJourney.htm
