Cynthia Piano by Cynthia Piano
Cynthia Piano is a profound mentor. She is the Founder of Oneness House, A Spiritual Spa and International Spiritual development and growth center. Its purpose is to serve those beings who wish to heal and ascend while on this planet. Their services reach " around the globe and into the cosmos." Many cosmic healers work with Oneness House to bring about healing, cleansing, re-birth, resurrection, ascension, anointing, transmutation, transformation and adaptation.
Cynthia is also a writer, visionary, Spiritual Life Mastery Mentor, and Doctor of Divinity. After working successfully in the corporate world for 22 years, she took the leap of faith to transition into the healing work she discovered to be her deepest mission. She encourages clients and us to, likewise, venture forth boldly and without fear into fulfillment.
In moving past our fears of change, we all have the capability to awaken to who we are. Cynthia's teachings remind me of a Hindu story where Vishnu (the God of Sustaining) takes form as a mother sheep and settles into nursing her baby. Shiva (the Lord of Death) and Brhamin (the Lord of Creation) see this fiasco and have a fit. Thus they came to Vishnu and screamed, "wake up, wake up you silly Lord and take your place as a God, as you should be."
To awaken, to transform into who we are in our Truth, we need to die to what we think we are.
The question we must ask ourselves: "Are we sheep that are being herded by some external God to slaughter (or far away heaven), or are we incarnation for a God that takes on both roles as Uncreated and Created?" Perhaps God is enjoying His/Her Self in nursing creation? I almost say "us" as if there is an "us" separate from "I-Am!"
Yes, even the staunch atheist is so full of God/Goddess that he glows in the dark. Being a-theistic he may even be closer, in that, by definition, he is beyond being full of theologies and philosophies. As it was said by Christian mystic William Blake
Give them the stone of Sophia
and you'll find philosophy gone
and, what is left? The stone!
Thus, is the Hindu account of Vishnu a story regarding an aspect of God, or is it OUR story? :) Perhaps the answer is "yes," or perhaps it is "no". Perhaps this is not an either/ or question but a both and. Dare we identify a surface wave with an entire Ocean? Yet, is the wave not a movement of the entire Ocean in relationship to the atmosphere? Perhaps we can begin to see that the particle is driven by the whole and the particle in its depths is as infinite as the whole. Particle and whole, or finite and infinite, are not two. They share identical DNA.
As if to reinforce my love for the notion that the universe is a holograph, where the part contains and mirrors the whole, Cynthia states that Hawaii's 7 islands are aligned to the 7 chakras of the human body. Indeed, in line with the Hawaian islands being a holographic image of the entire planet, the website Earth Chakras state the Earth's chakras are at various locations throughout the Earth. As it is in Heaven, so it is on Earth. As it is on the volcanic islands of Hawaii, so it is on Earth. And, so it is inside us!
Many people believe that spirituality is not about being Earth centered. To them, Earth is just a waystation, a school, a testing-ground. However, Cynthia states that being in Hawaii helped her to rekindle her affinity for the land. Indeed, she stated she learned a deep appreciation for the "Aina," central and sustaining for us on spiritual and emotional as well as a physical levels.
There is a lot of talk about dimensions in New Age Circles. Cynthia thus speaks to the 5th dimension. When asked about this dimension, Cynthia states it's easy to get hung up on the dimensions, and miss feeling what one's feeling and knowing. She helped us realize that when we start to quantify and categorize, we anesthetize the pulsations and cycles basic to life.
