Numerology/Astrology for 9/29/18
9/29/18 is the number 4. The number 4 is about the inner Buddha nature that is the seed of potential within all of us. And while it needs to be cultivated to be fully realized and expressed in the world, it is always a part of on living beings on this world. At this time in society, learning to consciously focus on bringing more of our own Buddha nature into being is an essential and powerful tool. If you do not know who you are deep down in that place where your life essence is sparked, you do not know really who you are or what your life is for or about. Take some time today to let the dark clouds of fear in your mind clear for a moment through meditation or spending time in nature and reconnect to that bring light within your own core. Then shine that out into the world and remind others of who they have hidden away within their own mind.
In teachings by Khenop Tsultrim Tenzin, the teacher explained it this way: “Impurities and defilements are the fruition of mistaken view… When defilements are removed (it is like) when the sun is freed from the clouds, then all the sun quality is there.”
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche defined Buddha Nature as: “… our fundamental nature of mind is a luminous expanse of awareness that is beyond all conceptual fabrication and completely free from the movement of thoughts. It is the union of emptiness and clarity, of space and radiant awareness that is endowed with supreme and immeasurable qualities.”
“Buddha nature is all-encompassing … This Buddha nature is present just as the shining sun is present in the sky.” — Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
The sun may be hidden by clouds, but it is always there. Our Buddha Nature, likewise, maybe obscured by our attachments and defilements, but it is always there. It’s not something we have (like a soul) but something we are.
