Dharma practitioners are friendly, easygoing, who love all creatures under the sun and the moon, and who, thanks to their steady and continuous ongoing relationships, help one another on the path to Enlightenment. – Venerable Sakya M. Longyen

Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of the Sentient World


Avalokiteshvara yidam

禪觀有情世界
在日常生活中體驗諸行無常
在起心動念中覺證諸法無我
在一息尚存中成就涅槃寂靜
在法界遷流中了悟緣起性空
Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of This Sentient World
Experience the Impermanence of all actions in our everyday life.
Wake up to the fact that all thoughts and intentions are void of substance.
Be one with and listen to the harmonious unstruck sound of silence of Om in Nirvana before you breathe out your last and final breath of life.
In the never ending shifts and flows of the Dharma realms wake up and come to the inner-standing and realisation that the original nature of all causes and conditions is substantively void.
From your humble gardener Venerable Sakya M. Longyen

On Sabbath This Seventh Day of Chanukah I Pray For Salvation


7th-day-of-chanukah

PRAYER FOR SALVATION

Dear Heavenly Father, Full of Grace!
I repent of my sins.
I ask You to forgive me,
For blaspheming You,
For living in sin.
Today I put my trust in Jesus,
The Son of God, the resurrected King.
Thank You for dying on the cross for me.
Thank You for paying the price of my sins.
Thank You for defeating Death,
And resurrecting from the Death.
I trust in You,
I open my heart to You.
Come and fill me with the Holy Spirit.
I believe I receive Forgiveness, Salvation, Eternal Life.
My destiny is in Your Hand.
I will not fear,
I will not be afraid,
Though they kill me,
Though they kill my body,
My spirit will be alive.
I will be with You for ever.
Thank You for saving me,
And accepting me.
I pray to the Father,
In the name of Jesus,
Amen.

Holy God We Praise Thy Name


Holy God We Praise Thy Name

Holy God, we praise thy name,
Lord of All, we bow before thee;
All on Earth thy sceptre claim,
All in Heaven above adore thee;
Infinite thy vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign;
Infinite thy vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign.

Hark the loud celestial hymn,
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising;
Fill the Heavens with sweet accord;
“Holy, holy holy Lord.”
Fill the Heavens with sweet accord;
“Holy, holy holy Lord.”

AND I HEAR GOD CALLING


trust-me-in-your-times-of-trouble-and-i-will-rescue-you-and-you-will-give-me-glory

MY CALLING IS THREE-DIMENSIONAL. AMEN.

ON A PIECE OF PAPER, draw three overlapping circles labelled A, B, and C, each circle with a portion overlapping the other two. Label the overlapping areas D=A+B, E=B+C, and F=A+C. The centre area where all three circles overlap is the area G, the spot of God, my Godliness. This is where the Spirit of God walks with me to fulfil his purpose. This Is My Calling.

Area C is IQ loosely, and not just Intelligent Quotient. It is my ability, skills, talent, and not just brain talent or skills but any kind of talent. It is practicality, the gift or anointing in spiritual term. It is education and training. It is what I do, and my instruction from God’s word. A high IQ means, for instance, I can handle finance or read a balance sheet. It means I know my stuff. But is having training or knowledge or a PhD degree enough?

Area B is EQ Emotional Quotient. It includes my personality, identity, interpersonal skills, and how I relate and communicate with people. It is who (others think) I am. It’s not the person I think I am, but the person that I project and others perceive that I am. It is my identity in Christ. A high EQ means I am attractive and people like me. It also means knowing myself and other people. But is being a people person enough?

Area A is SQ Spiritual Quotient. It includes maturity, moral authority, character that backs up my calling and my word. It is spirituality and humility. It is whose I am or whom I belong to. We all belong to somebody. We’re all under somebody. I Am Under Jesus. Amen. It is my intimacy with the Spirit of God. A high SQ means having a big walk with the Spirit of God. It means knowing Christ and making time to pray. It means having intimacy and fellowship with the Spirit of God and living with the 9-fold Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Meekness, and Self-Control.

No one can fulfil their destiny by being a one-dimensional person no matter how high their IQ or EQ or Spiritual walk is on its own. Area G is EQ and IQ and SQ combined, and it gives me influence and impact. Area G is the spot of God where God and I meet and where I am most productive and effective. It is my purpose in life. It is where I draw on the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfil God’s providence with influence and impact. When I am in this centre area, I can say, with all confidence and peace, “My life makes a difference.”

The World is the opposite of the Kingdom of God. The World wants “G” without taking steps 1, 2, or 3 or developing A, B, and C. The World wants to make a difference without Intimacy with God, Identity in Christ, or Instruction from God’s Word. The World is a world without Intimacy (A), Identity (B) or Instruction (C). They want to have it all but they don’t want to have any of the requirements.

AND I hear Him Calling… So I ask myself, “Am I inside the 3 overlapping circles? Am I in 2 overlapping circles, or am I in only 1 circle? Or possibly, am I even outside all of those circles?”

If you’re like me and wish to know your calling, do what I do. God bless you and yours. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
