Increase our energy

How might we begin to increase our energy?
  • Don’t get angry about small things.
  • Don’t speak on mobile phones for a long time.
  • Don’t eat white sugar.
  • Don’t watch TV.
  • Don’t use microwaves.
  • Don’t have wireless internet.”
“Everything is possible.”
“People need to know we can do anything we desire. When children play by using their imagination, it’s not just imagination. When we stop them by saying they can’t do this or that, it stops them making it a reality.
“What they are imagining can be a reality. What at this time we call imagination can be reality. We say it’s not possible, but everything is possible. We need to believe it, then we will have this capacity. When we rediscover what we can do, we can achieve our full potential.”

Our inner core can be destroyed by too much stress, facing multiple tasks, less sleep and more anxiety.

  • North, South, East and West,
  • the 4 elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and
  • the 4 big stars in the South Cross.

12 corners

The 12 festivals / The Inkan calendar.
The Inkas had a calendar, composed by twelve months, each of 30 days. Each month in the Inka calendar had its own festival (meaning month). The twelve outer corners mark the twelve corners of the year and an achievement of awareness.

Top

Wiracocha / God

Bottom

Pachamama / Mother Earth
This is only a simple interpretation – I am sure there are others.


Andean Cross – Chakana – It is inspired by the Constellation of the Southern Cross, which orients all creation on the Southern Hemisphere, as it is above and shall be below. 

On a small scale, it is the symbol of the Pachamama or Mother Earth, and on a larger scale, it is the symbol of the Universe. 


The four arms represent the four cardinal points (north, south, east and west). The circle represents eternity. 

The square represents the four natural elements (air, water, earth, fire). 

The triangle represents the three worlds in harmony: Hanan Pacha – spiritual world; Kay Pacha – physical world; and Uju Pacha – mental or psychological world. 

The small circle in the center of the triangle represents the point of harmony or equilibrium. 

All these elements together mean that to feel happiness in all senses human beings need to harmonize their three worlds or bodies using the four natural elements, with wisdom. Thus we will reach eternity, guided by the Southern Cross or Square Cross.

Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother. In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains, and causes earthquakes. 

She is also an ever-present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth.

Pachamama is usually translated as Mother Earth, but a more literal translation would be "World Mother" (in Aymara and Quechua.  


The Chakana, or Inca Cross, is a symbol revered by the ancient cultures of Peru, namely the Inca. 

They considered it to be the most complete sacred geometrical design. 

This symbol is often seen at ancient sites and sacred centers though out the Andes of Peru and Bolivia.Traditonally, it (cruz cuadrada meaning square cross in Spanish) represents the Southern Cross constellation which the ancient Andeans believed to be the center of the Universe and was easily distinguished while gazing upon the night sky.

The Chakana held great significance to the Incas and has numerous meanings in its design. It's three dimensional levels are said to represent the three worlds, which in Quechuan, the ancient Andean language, were called:
  •  Janan Pacha - Representing the Upper World/Above/Universe; 
  • Kay Pacha - Representing the Middle World /Here & Now/Mother Earth
  • Ukju Pacha - Representing the Lower World/Inner Realms/Other World. 

Interestingly, these three worlds seem to correspond with the Holy Trinity; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit seen in Christianity, as well as the Body/Mind/Soul (Spirit) idea seen in Eastern Religions.
     The Inca's had three spirit animals that they felt symbolized the three worlds; 

  • the condor, 
  • puma or jaguar, and 
  • the serpent. 
There are symbols honoring spirit animals in many of the ancient sites and structures in the Andes. In fact, the city of Cusco, Peru was built in the shape of a Puma.
 In addition to the Three Worlds, there are twelve steps that surround the Chakana. Each of the twelve steps is said to represent a level of initiation and an attainment of consciousness. 
 The Chakana can also represent within its design the four directions, 
North, South, East & West, as well as the four elements, Earth, Air, Water & Fire. 
The top of the cross is said to represent God, or Viracocha, with the highest level of consciousness being expressed as the Great Spiritual Central Sun.
Mother Earth, Pachamama, anchors the bottom of the cross bringing vertical alignment to the equal armed cross, which ultimately leads society to the raising of the Sacred Cross.

Even today, the people of Peru and Bolivia honor the Southern Cross or Chakana each year on the 3rd of May. May is the month of harvest and during this celebration people give thanks to the cross for the protection of the their crops.

  The Chakana, when used in meditation or in teaching, is said to bring spiritual balance and deeper insight into the many levels of consciousness.

 SQUARE

The Square is the ancient sign for the earth and symbolizes 

  • security, 
  • permanence, 
  • balance and 
  • integrity.

In both Eastern and Western cultures, the Square is seen to represent the ground or land. In Egyptian

Hierographics, the Square symbolized manifestation or realization. The Square is known as a symbol of morality.

While the Circle often represents the spiritual world, the Square represents the material or physical world. It said also to symbolize the male energy.

CIRCLE

The Circle is an ancient a symbol of unity, wholeness and completion. With no ending or beginning, it is the perfect symbol of the Infinite.

In many pagan religions, the Circle is seen to represent the feminine force, Mother Earth or the cosmos.

In Astrology, the Circle is associated with the eternal, spirit and the life force. The Celts viewed circles as having both protective and celestial significance.

The word Circle originated from the Latin word “circus”. A circus is where shows or activity take place in a circle. The Circle is a symbol of Mobility when in the form of a wheel.

TRIANGLE

One of the primary and most fundamental geometric symbols, the Triangle often represents the sacred Trinity in many religions. When pointed upward, the Triangle is said to symbolize the sun, fire, ascent to heaven, power, prosperity, royalty and the male energy.

When it is pointing downward, it symbolizes the moon, water, passivity, the great mother and grace. When the two triangles meet at their points, it is said to represent the sexual union between man and woman.

Why People are Layoff while companies are making Billions ?

 What was thought in school that make the system so wrong? Life of million of people are affected by the idea that every quarter the profit should increase. Who invented this model? This model is thought in Management School. 

The Paradigm should change to have a better world.

Even when the economy is healthy, companies lay off hundreds of thousands of people a week, and up to 1 million a month. The problem: they still see workers as an obstacle to higher profits.

IBM will reportedly announce this week the largest corporate layoff ever, at a reported 118,000 jobs. If it does, it is hardly the first time IBM or any other big company will have sacrificed its workers to appease the gods of Wall Street. 

At American Express, spending by the company’s cardmembers is growing, and so are revenues and profits. But not payroll: 

American Express just surprised financial markets by announcing plans to slash 4,000 jobs, cutting the number of employees by 6%.
At eBay, the planned job cuts, announced days ago, total 7% of the workforce, or 2,400 individuals, and come despite a 9% jump in profits and a 12% increase in revenues.


January is the worst month of the year for layoffs, and an increase in layoffs would be very normal after the kind of seasonal uptick in hiring that we tend to see in the fourth quarter.

Even when things are normal, employers still lay off a total of about 300,000 people every week, or 1.2 million people every month. It’s a staggeringly large number.

Consider American Express. From a distance, one would say this is a company that is doing just fine. Its profits for the fourth quarter rose to $1.45bn from $1.31 bn and beat analysts’ forecasts.
The problem? Amex had promised its investors that revenue would grow 8%, and it grew only 6.6%. Management knew investors would be worried and irritable. 

Who are those irritable investors? There are people behind it?
What can be done to change the system?



TD, Canada’s biggest lender by assets, started the process by hiring Boston Consulting Group to examine ways to drive efficiency, the sources said.

Following the review, TD informed employees of the job cuts last week and this week, with a further wave of job losses expected next week, they added.

Although they're still pulling in billions in profits, TD and other big banks are trying to protect their bottom line in a slow growth economy.
TD hikes dividend as profit tops $2B
 
Top down cuts
They're starting at the top and kind of working their way down. What I don't know is at what level they would stop," said an employee. 
 
"There's probably, I'm assuming, an expense number that they're trying to get to.

Fees up, jobs down

Many of the big banks are hiking some customer service fees and TD's layoffs come on the heels of a trio of other job cut announcements at banks.
