Your psycho-emotional defaults — your go to feelings — the ones that wash over you when doom enters your room . . . these are your messengers, a tremendous fuel-source that’s available if you tap into the base level of their messages. These default feelings are never to be used as guidance systems — or as commandments.

They are signals — signs that it’s time to use your silence and your sunia (deep listening) in a calm, meditative atmosphere. This will then put you in touch with the subtlest layers of these messengers and their messages.

It is here that a tremendous fuel-source unfolds to motivate your purpose — stimulate the notions arising from this purpose — then connects your intentions with inspiration and hope. This opens the realms you’d never know existed if you acted, or reacted with your default feelings. This is an elegant method to use the gloom that’s so common in these gloomy times . . . so unnerving and unsettling in these days of rage. This is the purpose and the process of using default signals from the gauges on the dashboard of your life . . . signals from your higher-self, signs telling you it’s time to pay attention and use the tension as a fuel-source.

Our prayer is that you’re aware of the treasures that exist beyond the surface of your reactions; that you take the time to listen deeply instead of reacting; that you become a sage who can also be a warrior when the time comes to take decisive action, and you do so with this magnificent fuel-source at the calm core beneath all reaction.
