Universal Monarch: "You can be completely raw and exposed with your husband or your wife...anyone you meet. Out of that birth comes an extraordinary birth: the birth of the universal monarch.
The Shambhala definition of a monarch is someone who is very raw and sensitive, willing to open his or her heart to others.
That is how you become a king or queen." "
The monarch's power comes from being very soft.
It comes from opening your heart with others. You have nothing to hide, no suit of armor. Your experience is naked and direct.
It is even beyond naked-it is raw and uncooked.
The way to rule the universe is to expose your heart, so that others can see your heart bleeding, see your red flesh, and see the blood pulsating through your veins and arteries. Opening yourself to other human beings in order to promote human welfare."
"The notion of ruling your world is that you can live in a dignified way, without frivolity, and at the some time enjoy your life. You can combine survival and celebration."
