Manipura Chakra and GoodWill According to Buddhism
“Searching all Directions
with your Awareness,
you Find no one Dearer
In the same Way, others
are Thickly dear to Themselves.
So you shouldn’t Hurt others
if you Love Yourself.”
Ud 5:1 The King, excerpt from the Rājan Sutta
Goodwill is always the Best Place from where to Start
Use Luminous Self-Interest to Induce Goodwill, Compassion and Self-Compassion: base your Happiness on the Realization of yourself and not on the Suffering of others. Always Encourage Right Effort in your Search for Happiness and Fulfillment.
This is the main Buddhist Teaching about GoodWill and the Use of Personal Force (Iddhipāda).
Right Effort is a Matter not only of Exerting yourself in the proper Way, but also of Making yourself more Motivated and naturally Nourished along the Way.
Always Focus your Intents and Interest toward Skillful Actions: Skillful Actions can Flow toward Transcendence while Unskillful Actions remain Anchored only to the Moundane.
Manipura Chakra and the Fire
Fire is Action and Transformation. Allowing yourself to Grow and become a Better Version of yourself you can Take Action Leaving behind what no longer Works for you.
Fire is the Element that is Traditionally attributed to Manipura. It has Three inner Meanings:
- the Sun
- our Inner Fire
- and Spirit
Today many People Find difficulties to Rise above the Third Chakra (Fixing their Intents only in their Mind) in order to Experience these Inner Meanings as Truths in their Lives.
It is in part Caused by Society’s Conditioning and Limiting Beliefs: a Kind of Cultural Hypnosis which Keeps us locked into our Physicality by denying us a Vibrant, Personal link with the Spirit and with the Wholeness.
By gradually Opening up to the Possibility of our Greater Life of Spirit, we begin to Experience Profoundly our Manipura becoming Balanced and Aware Adults, and it is only in that Moment that we can Enter Fully into the Heart and its Purifying Fire that Gift Air (the Element associated to the Anahata Chakra) of Freedom.
In Manipura the Fire of our Body (our Internal Fire) can Freely and Silently Burn, Be Consumed and Transcended by the Power of the Fire of the Sun as Light of the Spirit.
