A Beautiful Song: An Expression of Awakening

Love-Birds
Testimonial

At the time I met my partner, he had just done a workshop with Lujan Matus, Awakening The Energy Body and Dragon’s Tears.

In my friendship with my partner I was introduced to philosophical concepts that was quite foreign to me and sparked a great curiosity.

I realized that our social constructs and conditioning are obscured and that sanity is a skill and ultimately something that had to be learned. I wanted to acquire this skill and realized there was some hard work to be done. My partner mentioned Lujan as a great source of knowledge.

Words cannot describe the journey of being introduced to Lujan’s teachings, I read The Art Of Stalking Parallel Perception in one go. At first I didn’t understand everything on an intellectual level, but couldn’t put it down.

I slowly but surely tried to practice being more aware of my thoughts, watching my intentions, observing my interaction with people and noticed some great changes in my perspective. One of the hardest parts was not being drawn to drama and gossip. I tried to stop talking about other people altogether and started paying attention to what I said about myself. I was also in the very beginning stages of my relationship with my partner and the chapter on relationships helped us a great deal with the building of a solid foundation.

Now 4 years later, my partner and I got married and decided to learn the advanced version of Dragon’s Tears together. We were both sure this would strengthen our union going forward in life.

One of the big reasons I went there was to work through some trusts and control issues on my side and I can honestly say we both had great success dealing with these issues. Lujan taught us to lay open our hearts and communicate openly and honestly with each other.

Progress wasn’t always made intellectually; there was a great deal of spiritual realization that simply came from the heart. This sudden “enlightenment phenomena” went hand in hand with merely being in the presence of Lujan’s wisdom and teachings.

I can say with certainty that Dragon’s Tears bring forth a very revealing and healing energy that helped us deal with things that other wise may have taken 20 years to surface and be dealt with.

In my practice of looking at my intentions, I saw layers upon layers of cobwebs in my mind and one incident specifically revealed to me one of the many twisted emotional patterns of my past interaction with people.

After finishing the day’s Dragon’s Tears’ movements my partner and I was sitting in front of Lujan. A personal issue came up and for some reason I felt very exposed and vulnerable and an old habitual defense mechanism kicked in like never before. Instead of keeping my focus on the actual problem with my partner, my focus shifted to try and uphold a certain image in front of Lujan.

Lujan immediately realized the shift in focus and addressed it. Sensing his “disapproval” (in my mind) of what was happening, I responded with a story to justify my “position”. Refusing to see what was really happening, I continued with my story and fell into a mind trap of my own, desperately trying to pull those around me into it.

It was just before the weekend and took me almost three days to get out of the shackles in my mind. Not succeeding in “my justification” I felt exposed and embarrassed and at a point of no return. I repeatedly came back with stronger emotional babble connected to almost every problematic issue in my mind and hurtful story in my past.

What I didn’t understand was that there was no “position” to be justified, no blame to be shifted and no person judging. Walking into my own trap over and over again, I became aware of my layered defense mechanisms and intelligently crafted maneuvers to try and manipulate the situation. The stories of my past were imbedded justifications for my irrational emotional reactions. With all this “clever” behavior I prided myself in being “emotionally intelligent” and soon realized it was all just detrimental nonsense.

It all came to a resolve after the weekend of endless internal dialogue and sleepless nights, Lujan stood fast and waited patiently for my realization, with minimum interference he cautioned me to be more careful with my actions and words and keep my focus on what was happening in the moment. He also urged me not to try and put a perfect bow around the issue…. Which is exactly what I was trying to do in my tired state and yearning to find resolve!

The rant came to an end as I realized that with all the energy it took to go on and on in my mind, I could just stop. I said “I can just stop” and Lujan looked at me and asked, “I don’t know, can you?” it truly meant I had to leave all the tangled sticky cobwebs behind and merely stop…. Sounds easier said than done, but it brought an intense feeling of relief and release. Natural, beautiful, true healing laughter came from my heart, that “enlightening moment” I was talking about earlier.

Apart from being exquisitely beautiful movements that connects you with your body in a very gentle way, Dragon’s Tears has enriched my life and continues to do so. I would recommend it to anyone on their journey to discover their true potential. Powerful beyond any intellectual review I could write. I feel an immense sense of gratitude and great motivation to continue the practice as it slowly but surely reveals a whole new world to my perspective.

I would end by saying Thank you! To my life and “Dragon’s Tears”. Thank you to Lujan for fulfilling a very prominent and obvious calling. I have never met a person that speaks more truth and has such great integrity. A true eye opener to see what we are capable of as human beings when the “weight” of our internal dialogue is lifted and become empty to see that which is not true. I smile when I say, Lujan is a very strong person and helped us with some pretty heavy “weight lifting”.

    I would like you to subdue all your needs in terms of wanting a social response. It doesn’t matter about Lujeanne’s name – it matters how you feel in terms of the songs they are singing – eg. the happiness you felt, not the envy.

    Envy is a very strong emotion. Being happy for them is a much different way to approach your own internal processes. Realize that being happy will diffuse your feelings of the years passed into a feeling of fulfillment because of this alternate approach. Reflecting upon their success reveals your own position of fulfillment via embracing the full realization that they will have success because of starting earlier in their quest for their own personal enlightenment.

    Before you come to Cambodia I will ask you to subdue all of these feelings so that you may reflect upon yourself more easily when confronted with coming to see me.

    In life we do exactly what needs to be done with all of ourself. The feeling of success hinges solely on the sincere input of our lives in every moment that is continually escaping us. This creates fulfillment, for we all know nothing more can be done other than what needs to be and wherever you land is where you are meant to.

    Here there can be nothing but the reflection of your personal power – the wisdom spoken from the trials and tribulations that was your life that will be given back to those in complete humbleness and gratitude for the life lived and the power obtained from the energy outlaid. In not expecting anything all is revealed.

    This is the opposite to the social need to bond and to ask questions that may be empty of the power that you wish to obtain through the needy social prerogative, which becomes a revolving door of compliance that is not too dissimilar to chasing one’s tale and believing that the destination is being traveled toward.

    The simple act of just stopping will start your journey and when this occurs all will be revealed in terms of who you are and where you have landed in life.

    If you live this clearly and strongly then your regrets will become wisdom and kindness will reveal, through your actions within the communication to others, that there is no time to be wasted. The service to those that you look upon from this position will elevate your feelings to the internal satisfaction that you have lived your life the way it has transpired, and this cannot be regretted if you see it from this perspective.

    See you in the Canary Islands next week.

  8. Lujeanne, thank you for sharing your journey. It is so special to see two partners sharing their journey so fully. The lyrics of your beautiful harmonies are so inspiring too. I want to take up singing!!! Thanks for posting those, Lujan.

    I got the happy tingles.

    Lots of love, Luma

  9. My heart lights up when witnessing creativity in action.
    The lyrics are achingly beautiful.

  10. Lovely account and soundtrack to your lives. It reminded me of the beauty of being in love. It feels special so thank you for sharing it all.
    All the best for your journey ahead :-))

  11. To me art is an expression of disposition, emotions and perspective. A composition of an enlightened view or merely a reflection of our human condition, it gets so deep, that a whole genre of music was named after the human soul.

    Art is boundless resonating emotions and strength contained in a true note, a brush stroke or a developpe.

    People associate with this more than anything, the ability to quantify truth and honesty. You can hold back tears and intellectual words, but emotions cannot be hidden in the voice. ‘Singer’ or not, we can all be apart of that. Khalil Gibran describes it like this.

    Am I a harp that the hand of the mighty may touch me, or a flute that his breath may pass through me? A seeker of silences am I, and what treasure have I found in silences that I may dispense with confidence?

    This came up quite often in Learning Dragon’s Tears. To quiet the mind and be silent, we must become empty to open our eyes and express ourselves with no hidden agenda.

    Letting in the undeniable truth of a broken voice, a soft whisper or a mighty powerful belt into every gesture we do. Letting truth flow freely from the heart with a simple i love, a forgiving touch or a beautiful smile, things in which sincerity is almost impossible to fake.

    Everyone are artists if we understand the key to being a vessel of this exquisitely beautiful ‘thing’.

    Thank you for letting us communicate through our music, you taking the time to listen. It is our greatest pleasure to touch people with our music and i am so happy that i can express myself here with each and every one of you. To me you are all artist in expressing your gratitude to us.

    Lots of love
    Lujeanne

  12. That was beautiful!

    So harmonious! I forgot where I was momentarily listening to these two wonderful songs.

    It is amazing to experience the space-creating capacity of the human potential in the creation of art. The perceiver becomes as much the artist in experiencing the emptiness expressed.

    You guys are just great!

    Thank you for sharing this.

    With sleepy appreciation,

    David

  13. Beautiful and hopeful. Excellent rhythm section. Session player quality. One or both of you must be a producer as well as a performance artist. Well done.

    • Thank you so much Jerry, Devin is the producer, he hears orchestras and amazing brass sections in his head, sometimes when we do acoustic performances, just the 2 of us, the drums are beating in our hearts and i feel that the people can hear them as well. Thank you so much to every one for tuning in!
