31 October 2015, Aside 11 @ the Red Room

Red-Room-Aside-11-inviteHey Red Roomers!
Save the date on 31st October, as our eleventh Aside will be taking place that evening from 18:30 to 22:30. The 31st of October is Halloween, which comes from the term “Hallows Eve,” and was a pagan holiday that was celebrated the day before what later became All Saints Day in the Catholic calendar.

The theme for this Aside will focus on “Spirit,” and the Crown Chakra, the chakra responsible for connecting us to our selves, our spirit, and the universe. Come and join us for a very special evening with our speakers who will take us on the spiritual journey that brought them to where they are and who they are today!

Costumes recommended!

10 月 31 號是我們第十一回的「旁白在紅房」, 而這一回的活動當天正好是在萬聖節。「萬聖節」這個傳統原本來自於古歐洲少數民族文化的儀式, 是一個迎接他們宗教裡最神聖的節日, 宛如我們的除夕夜。後來當這些少數民族被天主教的歐洲人收納之後這個節日就成為了我們熟悉的萬聖節了。
既然這個節日傳統上是個那麼據有神聖價值的, 這一回的「旁白們」會來跟我們聊聊他們的心靈旅程, 以及他們的專長當中的魂與魄。歡迎大家一起來欣賞他們的經歷, 另外, 我們非常支持您穿服裝打扮, 連同歡慶萬聖節的另一面!

SYNOPSIS: Anny will guide us to do a yogic chant and Loving-Kindness meditation. Chanting is a large part of traditional yoga practice called Bhakti yoga, the practice of “Devotional Love.” It is a non-religious spiritual practice that invokes the Divine within and around us. By repeating the sound of these sacred words, we naturally surrender our ego, and enter into a meditative state where we can commune with the Divine.

An-ny will then lead to do a kind of guided meditation called Metta, “Loving Kindness” meditation (慈悲觀), where we get in touch with the positive qualities of our heart, such as love, compassion and gratitude. We first soak in this loving feeling, then use our collective energy to send it out to others and the entire planet.

When we come back to the positive feeling of our heart and practice Metta meditation, our electromagnetic field sends out coherent wavelengths, that scientific technology now is able to measure. Regardless of science, just by practicing chanting and Metta meditation, we will feel a sense of joy and peace, which is our most natural state.

After studies in engineering and business, I realized that I was rather inclined to independence, free thinking and creation in the arts.

In a life aloof from competition that permeates society and makes us petty and miserable, it makes sense to sing opera, indifferent to pop culture that makes us trivial and shallow.

I don’t have a “real” job and I’ve never really fit into society. Free from social bonds, I’ve been wandering around the world, only carrying a suitcase that became lighter and lighter. Join me in this wandering of thought and romance.

How To Know If You Are On Your Spiritual Path

We will begin with a short 3 minute eye gazing experience for people to get connected with one another before talking on the topic of how to have checkpoints to know whether we are on our spiritual path.

Since spirituality can sometimes be an amorphous concept, wouldn’t it be great if we can have checkpoints to see whether we are heading in the right direction?

First, let’s create a basic definition of spirituality. On a basic level, it is the evolution of self. On a more holistic basis, it is the elevation of who we are to the next level in the major spheres of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual realm.

Why does spirituality include physical, emotional, and mental aspects? Because we are holistic beings and when someone evolves on the spiritual level and it is fully integrated into the physical aspect, then it will necessarily show up in their day to day lives.

The Raven
Our narrator is a young student reading in his room one stormy night, half-dreaming about his beloved deceased mistress. He hears a tapping at his window and opens it to admit a raven, which he assumes is someone’s pet that has escaped its master and is seeking shelter from the storm. The raven can speak – but only one word, “Nevermore.” Even so, the student is compelled by what the poet calls the “universal human need for self-torture” to ask the bird questions. The response “Nevermore” causes his suffering to be even more intense. When this self-torture reaches its most extreme level, the poem then naturally ends.
