Things Are not Thoughts Nor of Mind

Objects are not in any way, shape, or form related to our thoughts. Does this should odd or even wrong? Still, let’s consider this further. Things manifest in the universe. They are there without the need for classification. Yesterday, I was relaxing during the transition into meditation. I was aware of a bird singing, a lawnmower, and an airplane during this shift in perspective. There, within it all, was a state of presence and I was observing the brains interactions.

things

Here it is beneficial to acknowledge how the mind is interacting. This is because the things detected were uninteresting to the mind. Instead, it cleverly disregarded everything because the mind is egocentric. Nevertheless, it was busy labeling everything. Furthermore, the mind was having a wonderful time talking to itself.

This never-ending self-dialogue went on an on as the mind chattered away. The mind literally seemed to be on a crusade. The thoughts consisted of assumptions, questions, and supposed answers. But, everything that the mind was talking to itself about was irrelevant. The mind’s dialogue was a self-analysis such as “why I like this” and “why I don’t like that”. Continue reading

Love Will Show You the Way: Book Publication

You can pre-order the Kindle version (readable in all devices) of my newest book Love Will Show You the Way. The publication date will be June 1, 2020 for paperback and Kindle. The book offers in-depth ideas and insights into how to love and live more consciously. I dive deep into the topics. But, have done my best to offer the material in an interesting and easily readable manner.

 

Love Will Show You the Way

You will find stepping stones to conscious awakening within the pages. Also, there will be pages that might leave you scratching your head. This is a proper metaphor illustrating how the mind will react to some of the areas offered in the book.

This is part of the process as we awaken and is fine. Remember. You are not your thoughts. Therefore, it is not necessary to attach yourself to them. The book gives you a stepping stone to practice letting go and accepting a conscious state of being.  Loving and living in harmony with life is your birthright. Continue reading

The Footpath of Least Resistance

A pathway can reveal clarity or confusing. What is the deciding element during the journey? You, because you are the way. The “Way” is not the path itself. Nor, is it you as the person. Instead, it is how you travel this trail. The way is permanence. And, you take one step and then the next. But, will each step be unconsciously or consciously taken?  A footpath commonly indicates a simpler means of travel. Then why does the way often seem so complex? Remember, you are the way. Therefore, you cause the complications. The path is simply a path.

footpath

Thus, the footpath is helpful during conscious awakening. Whereas, the way is unavoidable. However, it can be a transition that will change everything. This depends on how you experience it. Laozi (Lao Tzu) shared profound wisdom in his insight about The Way. His teachings offer us the experience of simplicity as we travel on the path. He does not share details about what we encounter. But, he does suggest living consciously along the way. Continue reading

Your Surroundings Do Not Define You

It seems so obvious. But, being what we truly are has become very difficult. Or has it? No, I am not trying to confuse you. Who are you? Just ask someone and they will tell you. Moreover, your immediate and extended surroundings are always influencing you. Truth be told, the majority of people don’t have any clear understanding what it essentially means to live.

surroundings

But, how could we know? People, surroundings, and even our own mind want to dictate our internal nature. There is always more to you than meets the eye. Still, your eternal self has been buried under a huge collection of misguided assumptions and definitions. All of which are nothing but conditioned patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behavior. I can assure you that these are not really you. Then how do we experience our true inner self nature? Continue reading

Is Life Obligated to You? Does Life Owe You?

Do these questions seem odd to ask? Still, we expect life to give us something every day. Whether we are aware of it or not. We demand that life be fair. We assume living means getting what we want. Yes, indeed! Life is obligated to do our bidding. You may say that I am generalizing and the majority of people don’t think this way. However, we all do, at some given level. It is, so to say, in our blood. Life owes us. But, life is not here to fulfill our desires. Or, is it?  

obligated

We must first burst this illusion bubble before we can truthfully answer this question. The origin and implication of this conditioned thinking started long ago (clock-time). But, when these expectations started is irrelevant. We attach ourselves to thinking patterns and belief systems. These dictate that everyone should live in paradise. Hence, Life has an obligation to give us the ideal circumstances to obtain nirvana. Thus, we are apprehensive about living. This causes us to await something from life. This is actually a self-inflected dependence. Continue reading

Duality Is a Game: Wake up and Live

The mind tends to induce duality in our existence. That’s okay. This is what it means to be human. Still, we are ultimately the source of life. The point of origin. Let’s call the essence of this energy home. The birth of each person signifies a false journey that supposedly will return us home. Let me rewords this idea. Our birth signifies a voyage that will unfold as an opposition to our true self. Still, it is necessary. But, it is an illusion. That is why there is often such confusion. The idea of a specific path or purpose in life overshadows our existence.

duality

Energy manifests through an object and it becomes conscious. This, in turn, is an opportunity for conscious energy to experience itself. This is most likely possible after a life-form as reached a given level of self-consciousness. We were born for this one grand accomplishment. Our evolution has given us the opportunity to achieve deeper consciousness. Still, there is no guarantee. Continue reading

Sureness of Universal Energy: Just Let It Flow

Trust is everything. It is existentially, as also ultimately, the foundation of the universe. The sureness of universal energy is oddly similar to the Chaos Theory. Trust suggests that everything is as it is. The mind is turning somersaults now due to these sentences. Therefore, let’s first clarify. Still, always remember that such words are useful as signposts. But, they are only directional finders on the journey back home and nothing more.

sureness

You are, he or she is, and all is everything. This is simple enough. Isn’t it? Likewise, universal energy always is in one form or another. This is the sureness of being. We can also simplify this by saying (what is, is).  We place our trust in countless existential factors. So, why don’t we accept the unfolding of universal life energy? Yes, things are going to happen. They always do. But, it is possible to let go. Do you trust yourself? If yes, then you should depend on the vibrations of this energy. Why should you? Because everything reflects you according to your trust and acceptance without expectations. Continue reading

Does It Hurt? The Mind Says Yes

Please read the next sentence and then pause before you continue. Would it be accurate to say that we often hurt because of circumstances, people, and things? No, this is not true. The concept of suffering is an implanted genetic and conditioned factor. But, how often do we really hurt? The mind complains about one thing or another. And, something it is literally disagreeable about everything. This is regardless if it is mental or physical. Unfortunately, we (unconsciousness) also complain when the mind disapproves of something.

hurt

But, this is only due to conditioned behavior. It is possible to awaken. You are resting outside on the patio. The neighbor starts to mow the grass. Oh no, the mind screams. What does the neighbor have against me? The lawn mower is getting on my nerves. There is frustration and often initiates suffering. Does this situation really cause hurt? No, of course not. The mind, on the contrary, will say yes. And, a person is usually more than willing to believe these thoughts. Continue reading
