LEGACY AND ARCHIVES

 

The vision is to create a cyber space archive, wherein contributions from women and men all over the globe will find a permanent home.   This will insure that the teachings offered to tens of thousands of people for over 35 years will not be lost. Pictures, excerpted material, emails or letters containing meaningful correspondence is welcomed. Quotes along with anecdotes of memorable times will unite the teacher Brugh with Brugh Joy the doctor, the healer, the wise man, and the mystic.. Brugh Joy was also an author of two highly regarded books chronically his life and evolution in consciousness; Joy's Way and Avalanche.  

 

This magazine is not intended as a "Blog" format.  Of course you are welcome to re-scoop the posts I have made. Please limit your personal interpretations of offerings to your own magazine[s]. 


This is not an archive in the usual sense as its life blood will primarily flow from the people contributing their collected pieces to the archival repository. We have thousands of potential contributors who have already done the groundwork for over 3 decades. Ours is not a "bricks & mortar" location. The advantage of this is the archives will always be available when you are, access is 24/7.


Testimonials can also be a meaningful portion of the legacy. A web site for "Echoes of Joy" has been reserved. This site will be a place where we can share & support the ongoing legacy of W. Brugh Joy, MD.


What is missing are your personal contributions. What has been created in this magazine is the ground work we open to. We welcome your sharing this magazine with friends and those you feel would find value in Brugh Joy's offerings.  There are many venues wherein people individually are sharing quotes, pictures and other wonderful pearls recorded over 35 years and in thousands of workshops, lectures, gatherings, conferences and interviews...our intention is to create a place, one place, where the focus is on preserving the opportunity to   share with future generations.  One place dedicated to the work of Brugh Joy, 

 

This project also affords us possibilities to come together as we open to embrace the vision.  We may discover the universe will respond in ways not previously considered...like an in person gathering with people coming from all over the world...we can dream!

 

Until Soon,


Michael

Pearls Regarding the Unconscious

Pearls Regarding the Unconscious | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
"Dreams are not for the conscious mind, they are a reflection of what the unconscious is.

"The unfoldment of a life is driven by the unconscious dynamics between Self...the Shadow…and the Ego. What the ego is aware of is mostly socialization attitudes, biases, preferences, and filtered perceptions."

"Suggesting that C.G.Jung’s overarching view point ….that the great task of individual consciousness is to become more and more conscious…might not be, in any way the mandate to humanity. To the contrary….the great task of individual consciousness is to realize that the greatest mystery lies in darkness, the unconsciousness, and the mystery of manifestation and the impossibility of consciousness to encompass unconsciousness! The most astonishing, awesome, mind boggling, staggering, and incomprehensibly complex manifestations took place without any secondary consciousness and certainly not by the consciousness presumed by humankind."

"No absolute statements can be made regarding any aspect of the unconscious" 

"The unconscious appears to be fluid and dynamic with multiple facets interacting"

"Beneath the socialized awareness lie potentials and possibilities not under the surface (ego) control" 

"Depending on which unconscious constellation of forces is influencing the surface will determine the responses at the surface level" 

 "No aspect of the unconscious operates alone, thus the infinite variations on themes" 

 "Degrees and interacting potentials would best describe how the unconscious makes its presence known to the conscious awareness."
 
"The conscious mind tends to categorize and to conceptualize experience thus robbing the surface awareness of the subtleties and variations that are actually present in any given experience"

"In the death of the self lies the life of the heart.

Enter non-egoism thru the heart not the crown.

Spherical expansion centered within the heart.

Order and Chaos, through the heart center, are transformed into compliments.

There are only two places to go to escape the archetype once it has taken hold of you: the awakened head center and the awakened heart

The Heart Center

The Heart Center | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
Via Alicia Schmoller - "

"The Heart Center gives us the opportunity to move out of the littleness of the ego and its orientation to self-preservation and its power drives. The Heart Center is truly the one dynamism that transforms the power drives. It brings us into the experience of being an emanation of the Divine.

The idea is not just to sit there in bliss and look out at the world, which is how many people use the Heart Center. You use the mystery of the Heart Center to catch a glimpse of the larger process, and you are asking for the soul’s dynamic to come forward, and when it does, this may carry you very specifically into a kind of passion that may be quite different from what you thought your life was about, or what your head had rationalized.

If you stay within the egoistic level and try to grok the divine dynamism of being, it gets contorted into knots of anger, and resentment, and twisted images, and concocted filters and victimization. And then, something cracks that at some point in time, and you are suddenly able to see beyond the little ego’s perception and you begin to catch a glimpse of the larger Beingness. We are not the source of our being, we are sort of a witness watching the whole process. Our lives are not our own – we are trained to think that way, but we are really Life in its dynamisms.

In the deepest most mysterious process, one is powerless – one is a product of something else, and you can run around and create all sorts of things around you to give you a sense that that is not the truth, or at some point you are willing to let it all go and enter that extreme mystery of powerlessness. The fundamental inadequacy mystery, the vulnerability, the powerlessness are what bring us to the Transcendent, and one can be annihilated by the Transcendent, or one awakens and comes to a new realization through it." - Brugh Joy.

CONSCIOUS DEATH AND RESURRECTION 

CONSCIOUS DEATH AND RESURRECTION  | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
“We’re conditioned not to wound, but conscious death and resurrection are necessary to evolve – death of innocence must occur in order to evolve. Wanting to be loved, and to be the good child: every time you individuate you lose that, but there are new resources that appear and support the soul in its emanation. 

Embrace the disowned with no hope that it will ever change. If you want it to go away because it disturbs the ego, you collapse its transformational power. Open to the transformation instead of trying to be the transformation. Our task is to apprentice ourselves to the mystery, to have the eyes to see what is. 

Birth is an initiation into the ability to carry pain. We resist pain, but it has a transcendental nature. Pain is usually not how you imagine. What basically generates pain is the defense. What you encounter in the future has to do with what you resist. Experience the mystery of pain, open to it, allow it. When you do, the experience shifts. 

The orchestration of your life is not determined by the ego, it’s being determined by much deeper material, some of which is not ego-enhancing. If you deal with life only through your ego resources, it can be overwhelming and anxiety-ridden – it requires the entrusting of one’s being to something much larger, at which time you find all of that immediately dissolves. 

When what you want from an ego perspective is not happening, you think nothing is happening, but the surface awareness is too one-sided – there’s a lot happening, only not what the ego wants. Once you surrender, when the ego is placed in a position of powerlessness, you are showered with resources, but you can’t make it happen. The Transcendent can only come in once the ego has stopped feeling it is in charge.” – Brugh Joy, MD

Working With Consciousness - Insights From a Dream  

Working With Consciousness - Insights From a Dream   | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
This is an Excerpted  piece :

"To appreciate the conflict revealed by your dream we perceive that the issue is the lesser coniunctio. The opposites desire to come together but have not yet transformed through the conscious realization of Shadow. The vulnerabilities and defenses of the feminine (Yin) in relation to the masculine (Yang) are revealed. It is not dealing with your sister or your cousin or any personal sense of self. 

The dream figures are personifications of impersonal impulses and dynamics beneath conscious awareness and are merely revealing the stage that is manifesting. These are not to be appropriated by the ego of the surface mind. Powerlessness, until maturation occurs, always calls for anger and rage as defenses to the vulnerability. The infantile power drive is instinctual and salvational.

As maturation occurs, we come into new parts of ourselves that can respond to vulnerability differently. This is what your dream is revealing. The unconscious is reflecting development. The vulnerable masculine strikes out against the feminine and the feminine realizes it has resources to overcome the masculine infliction yet, as it is in an earlier stage, inflicts back with fire (anger and rage_. This is lesser coniunctio where the unconscious Shadow appears. This will be followed by separation, integration, and, eventually, the greater coniunctio, where the opposites transform into complement and desire to dance together in harmony. 

 Witness without appropriating and the ego can easily handle the mysteries of the unconscious. As you make conscious what was unconscious a miracle happens....the dynamic process is allowed to unfold naturally. What delays the process is the ego's misuse of power and self- centeredness. 

 The dream dynamics are taking place in the deep emotional, instinctual, and sensate layers of beingness. Best to witness the genius and wisdom of the healing and maturational dynamics of the bodyful" - W.Brugh Joy, MD

Serving the Inner and Outer Temple and those that are Called to offer their Life to particular Attributes of the Heart Center.

Serving the Inner and Outer Temple and those that are Called to offer their Life to particular Attributes of the Heart Center. | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
In each of the following attributes or emanations of the Heart Center/Anahata, we honor those that come to serve the inner temple, both seen and unseen and those that come to serve the outer temple, seen and unseen. Then in particular we honor those that respond to the call to offer their life to the following: 
 • Divine Love: The mystery of love that is unconditional and unconditioned. Love in its pure form, we begin with love in emptiness, the mystery of Divine love, the alpha omega, and the mystery that lies behind ohm. 
• The Healing Presence: that which restores, renews and makes whole, that which moves Divine love in form. We honor those that are called to serve the Healing Arts. 
 • Innate Harmony: this is the peace beyond all understanding, the calm in the midst of chaos, the center of the spinning wheel, and that which makes the heart lighter than a feather. Those that come to serve Peace, Serenity and Still Bliss as it is called. 
 • Supernal Compassion: the ability to know another directly as oneself. In particular those that come to serve lifelong the emanation of Supernal Compassion.

"Approach the shadow with reverence and awe.
 
Order and Chaos, through the heart center, are transformed into compliments.
 
Constantly approach every person you meet as a true mystery to be discovered in the moment. 

Violence is often a vehicle for change and transformation.

Suffering has a noble purpose: the evolution of consciousness and the burning up of the ego. 

You need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.

Whenever you are in a negative state, there is something in you that wants the negativity that perceives it as pleasurable"

“Be a witness to the fluctuations in self-esteem – validate the pattern, appreciate it, live it. If you cannot change a given situation, change your state of consciousness about it, and you’ll discover new possibilities . Deeper, vaster forces shower the individual when you surrender to pain and powerlessness. Sacrifice, and go to the unexpressed, to what you refuse to see – this, done from the Heart Center is the true individuation, the journey of the soul.” – Brugh Joy.

Ethic

Ethic | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
"I might suggest that Ethic is not the path of depth development and wholeness. As used, Ethic is an elaborate mind filled defense system, a separatio, a containment that leads to neurosis and illness in its worst form – a weapon by the mind against the body and to half a development in its best form. Perhaps Ethics impose timing until conscious maturation is achieved. Spontaneous expression is a mantle worn by the Gods and Goddesses and the Masters and Mistresses of the Art. What do Ethics have to do with Divinity manifesting in form? The Dance is Male/Female – not Mind/Body" - W.Brugh Joy, MD

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 3

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 3 | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
This is the 3rd installment of Past Lives/Present Patterns

All the patterns being read by the reader are those of impersonal forces manifesting through us. Each individual has a unique combination of the immortal patterns, determined by the energetics at conception. Life incarnates us and needs us. These patterns renew themselves in each generation and are present now, not somewhere in the past! We are only the latest vehicles acting out the forces in the great Mystery Play called Life. Our only spiritual responsibility is, to the best of our ability, to fully live out the patterns that relate us to the wholeness of Life.

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 1

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 1 | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
The following is an excerpted portion of a much longer piece written in Avalanche, by Brugh Joy, MD “My current view is that the key to understanding and appreciating what past life readers are presenting is to reinterpret “past life” anecdotes in terms of their being active, current patterns in the multiple selves of the Unconscious, rather than events in the past. There is, in fact, nothing in a past-life reading –no character, plot, or theme –that cannot be understood as a force presently acting in the Unconscious. When this is recognized, one can ferret out the key unconscious patterns that are operating in one’s life without getting stuck in literal or denotative interpretations of psychic readings” - Brugh Joy, MD

Induction Through Crisis -  Trauma as Life Teacher

Induction Through Crisis -  Trauma as Life Teacher | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
The following is excerpted from “Induction through Crisis: Trauma as Life Teacher” in Avalanche page 149 - 151 in paperback edition:
 “One of the most powerful thoughts I ever had about medicine was a previously taboo concept which, when it occurred to me, renovated my entire understanding of health and disease. I asked myself how a particular disease, injury or emotional trauma might be serving the deeper aspects of a person. It was if the gates of awareness parted. Most people experiencing cancer or other life – threatening illness will tell you they came alive under the crisis of the diagnosis. Priorities were suddenly revalued. The petty and infantile were discarded for the meaningful and fulfilling. Relationships that had been taken for granted were heightened. Other relationships long dead were discarded.

Crisis in the form of disease, injury, or emotional pain are forces for change. However, if the underlying patterns of change can be discerned and if the willingness to make the required changes is substituted for the illness, injury, or emotional pain that is forcing changes, a miraculous potential to dissolve disease and injury patterns can be discovered. Yet there is so much unconscious secondary gain in disease and injury that most individuals will not want either, to see a need for, or to effect, the required changes. But when the individual is ready for a difficult initiation, the deep Self showers its resources and gifts on that part of self undergoing the change” W. Brugh Joy, MD

I am skipping a few paragraphs and excerpting the following:

 “When I am assisting people with their personal growth, I usually urge them not to redo the birth trauma and to redo the childhood crisis. The fact is simply that the infant vehicle of awareness had to enter, appearing through the struggle of initiation, because the fetus could not handle the new circumstances. Likewise, each subsequent vehicle of consciousness must enter through the struggle of initiation, or major problems occur in later life. This has become even more clear to me as I have worked with large numbers of people, for I have discovered that they are often trying to use infantile psychological patterns to deal with adult crises, while the vehicles of consciousness that could easily handle the crises or the changes are prevented from entering their awareness”

Now for the kicker last paragraph:

 “Crisis has the potential to activate rich, and mature states of awareness, with capabilities that are not stimulated in unstressed and overly protected infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. In fact, many of the world’s most remarkable individuals-whether they have worked for the great Good or the great Evil – have come from very disruptive or abusive early environments. Difficult circumstances are the basis of great maturational potential if the psyche has been initiated in a way that permits the individual to embrace the necessary sacrifices” - W. Brugh Joy

Addiction

Addiction | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
Via Alicia S....with gratitude for your ongoing commitment to supporting the work of Brugh Joy, MD

"Undergo the tremendous anxiety that underlies an addiction – surrender and sacrifice the infantile power drive which lies beneath the addiction. It pumps you up, yet it leaves you more and more vacuous and empty. It is not yours – get your ego out of it – sacrifice it back to the Transcendent and let the Transcendent handle the power drive. The ego has wrapped itself around it - this leaves you disconnected from Beinghood, from the mystery of simple connection, the mystery of wondering and nothing happening, but still experiencing a connection to some deep inner knowing. This is the ego inflated around an infantile power drive – what one is confronted with is one’s essential powerlessness. We are so involved in masks, and intensities, and inflations we can’t see the authentic in us. The primitive drives are Transcendental and you undergo a sacrifice by no longer identifying them as yours. Then, there’s a most amazing experience that takes place: your natural power comes through. When the ego surrenders wrapping itself around something, you realize you are imbued by something else, and have been all along, and your task is to find the simplicity mystery in relationship to that, so that when it is operating you recognize it is operating through you, but you don’t identify with it either consciously or unconsciously. You offer yourself as a Vehicle – it’s a mystery of relationship to the larger forces."

The Illusion of World Peace

The Illusion of World Peace | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
“Seeking world peace is not about peace, it is power and control all under the guise of service to humanity. I think we are just very naive talking about peace – we don’t want to be threatened by chaos, by change, by uncertainties, and yet it is in those things that we have the greatest development. We do not develop in the soporific state of consciousness of peace. The peace movement is a power/control issue and it doesn’t realize that it calls forth its counterpart at an unconscious level. Now, if each of the individuals would own their power drives, particularly the infantile power drives, and strip away all of this goodness, and realize the consequences of their actions…Anybody who wants to take world peace on, when an individual sees chaos and violence and wants to immediately make peace, it means they must be getting close to their own unconscious chaos and violence, and it gets projected into the world. The key is how do you come to terms with those forces within your own nature, not in the world. That is why I keep talking about backyard work. If you get seduced into the arena of the world movements, you have to acknowledge there’s an inflation going on – the key is to let go of that, just stay in your own backyard and do the work there – otherwise you are an unconscious pawn in a collective mystery.”

POWER/POWERLESSNESS

POWER/POWERLESSNESS | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
Feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness always compensate a conscious/unconscious drive to power. The deflation protects us from the ruthlessness of the power drive. The power drive is not a personal expression. It is Divine and very powerful. Inadequacy and unworthiness are not personal. They are Divine, as well. Both power and powerlessness are Divine and their interaction is Divine as well. The problem lies with the ego or surface awareness that identifies with either one. Preference leads to violence - as in the story of Cain and Able while suchness harmonizes. The Heart Center teaches us to witness the dynamics as a mystery without appropriating. The actual experience of both interacting is a form of Awakening. The illusion is to think/feel that we are the “power” that is capable of serving others. Offering the power without concern as to the outcome is the appropriate relationship to power.

Via Patricia D- Thank you

"I also feel that no matter what your personal patterns might be, your personal difficulties, your psychological conflicts, we are in a time period where the individual process is being functionally eclipsed by the collective process. When that happens, we have to pay huge attention to making sure that we have a way to become transparent so that we are not swept up with the forces of the collective, but that we can essentially remain transparent to it and take action rather than reaction.

You can always tell when you have lost yourself with your bias and your preference. When you start to react to what’s going on out there, you’ve lost clarity. You’ve gone unconscious. And so the heart center is this amazing gift that I have had the privilege of offering over the years. I feel it can give one a state of consciousness that brings forth, not paralysis that I feel is where a lot of people go to when they go into the heart center. They start seeing both sides of something and they get conflicted, rather than recognizing that the heart center gives you a mystery of transcending the opposites to take action. You are called to take action not out of your thinking process but at a much deeper layer" W. Brugh Joy, MD; Excerpted from longer conversation

The Mystery Arts - The whole mystery training is to disempower you, not to empower you

The Mystery Arts - The whole mystery training is to disempower you, not to empower you | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
"The practice of any kind of art, particularly what are called the mystery arts, the preparation to be able to enter the communal states of consciousness and return is what mystery training is all about. It is not to empower you which is the ego training. The ego training which gives you ego strength and action as an individual in the world certainly has plenty of trainings for it serves one passageway. But at some point you begin to surrender that piece as the primary to open to the enlargement. You not only to come into realization that you are part of something much, much larger, but functionally you are in service to all of it. And from there you can look back and see the part of it that is personality, personal sense and see its interweaving. 

The whole mystery training is to disempower you, not to empower you, and what comes through it isn’t empowerment. The degree to which you maintain a weld to the individual and personal state of consciousness is the degree to which you preclude the full empowerment or full emanation of what would be called the mystery of being. So this ritual is a way to begin the dissolution through practice. The whole idea is not that it is done perfectly. The idea is the intention behind it. 

The authenticity as you approach each facet of a shift in consciousness to whatever degree and for me at this point sometimes it is a whiff and sometimes is an oceanic wave. I never know which one it is going to be when I am preparing to go in. To whatever degree even the whiff gives you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of what I would call the profundity which is way, way beyond the idea of self-importance" Excerpted piece offered by Brugh Joy, MD

Invitation to Heart Center Meditation - Private Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/HeartCenterMeditation/

You are invited to become a member of our Heart Center Meditation group. Use the link offered and request to be added. Many of my friends are already members, for those that are not, consider this as your invite. The Heart Center is the Acme of Human Spiritual Development. As we move into the awareness of the heart center, we catch the suchness of life and things, no longer viewing them through biases and preferences. Heaven and Earth, Mind and Body, Logos and Eros, unite in the Heart Center.

Michael Goodman's insight:
For decades the very foundation of Brugh Joy's work was the Heart Center. For my friends on Facebook, please use the link and request to be added to our Heart Center Meditation group on Facebook.

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 2

Past Lives/Present Patterns: An Alternative View of Reincarnation - Part 2 | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
"This shift in attitude about past lives occurred because I discovered that when I went to different sensitives, each would read the supposed past lives differently, yet the same basic themes or patterns would be embedded in those ostensible scenarios from the past. The names, places, and most of the superficial details of the “past lives” would be very different ---just as West Side Story and Romeo and Juliet are different ---though the patterns of these stories were basically the same. 

Through these experiences with many different readers, I suddenly became aware of the Pattern Level of Reality. I saw the eternal dance of but a limited number of themes and plots, combining and recombining, dancing us generation after generation and having nothing to do with the personal self, that self which is but an illusion of consciousness and has only limited resources and options in relation to the forces that are actually manifesting us. Instead of seeing karma as personal and individual, I suddenly saw it as collective, impersonal, and immortal" - W.Brugh Joy, MD

Pattern

Pattern | ECHOES OF JOY: KINSHIP COMMUNITY NETWORK | Scoop.it
"The moment you have an agenda going that, “this should be”, you’re missing the point. 
The moment you move against a pattern, you charge it. 
To be able to witness a pattern is to no longer being caught up in it"  Brugh Joy, MD 

"From my standpoint, your childhood is the first time the pattern appears. The moment the sperm and the egg come together, certain key patterns are struck in your being, and they will emanate through every stage of your life, from childhood to elderhood. Wheareas the contemporary viewpoint is that whatever happens to us in childhood is the determinant of all of our miseries later on, from my standpoint it is just the first time your pattern confronted you, and you were in a vehicle that couldn´t handle it – that is the wounding. The child usually can’t handle the intensity of the soul so it victimizes, or calls it a wounding. At a later point in time the very same thing is the transformative energy for further development.”... ....W. Brugh Joy, M.D.
Michael Goodman's insight:
It is truly all about pattern.
