Fire Speaks So That We May Remember

We live in an age when the outlook of materialism has gripped our culture, robbing us of right relationship with the living world. So few people remain who can remember and speak to the vital wisdom our ancestors held. In times when humanity stumbles, the Spirit of Fire, sometimes lovingly referred to as Grandfather Fire, will seek a human form as a conduit to transmit the guidance that is needed to restore balance. When the call to serve this purpose is accepted, it is a blessing for all. Here is a glimpse into one such story.

The moment when Fire comes to speak can be dramatic.

A sudden hush has fallen on those gathered around the hearth. Whereas just seconds before the circle was filled with a crescendo of drumming, percussion instruments and voices raised in song, now there is respectful stillness. It is a stillness fueled by an air of expectancy. The activities of the afternoon and evening have led up to this moment, warming hearts and minds. Conversations with other attendees, both well known and newly welcomed, were enjoyed over a shared meal. Participation in the consecration of the hearth fire created a ritual container set apart from everyday life. Personal stories, jokes, poetry, laughter and song all helped build the flames of relationship, human to human, even among those who had been strangers at the beginning of the day.

Bienvenida al año del perro de la tierra

La Comunidad Internacional del Fuego Sagrado se complace en anunciar un Fuego Especial en honor del Año Nuevo Tibetano. Este evento tendrá lugar el 3 de Marzo del 2018 en Tepoztlán, México. Continúa leyendo para conocer más sobre la bendición que este evento anual, ahora por 16ava ocasión, representa para la comunidad local y global.

Desde el 2002, el Abuelo Fuego ha brindado anualmente una audiencia Especial al inicio del Año Nuevo tibetano, o poco después. En esta ocasión, el Año Nuevo Tibetano (y Año Nuevo Chino) comenzó el 16 de febrero y la audiencia tendrá lugar el 3 de marzo, lo cual permitirá que la gente se sumerja en las energías del año antes de escuchar hablar sobre él.

Esta tradición se inició debido a la conexión que muchos de los miembros de la comunidad del Fuego Sagrado de Tepoztlán mantienen con el linaje tibetano de Shambhala, que comparte una aspiración similar de traer a nuestro mundo una sanación social y un despertar del corazón. Al igual que el calendario chino, el calendario tibetano se mueve en ciclos o rabjams de 60 años, durante los cuales atraviesa por la combinación de 12 animales y cinco elementos. Esto esboza un ciclo de vida largo que afecta a nuestro mundo entero.

Si te sientes inspirado por el Año Nuevo del Perro de Tierra, ¡¡participa con nosotros en este extraordinario evento!! Haz click aquí para ver la información sobre el registro. Si no te es posible asistir, mantente pendiente de de la publicación que haremos en este blog más adelante sobre el Perro de Tierra.
