Knowing Love Deeply Is to Be Alive Completely

Knowing doesn’t always originate from theory or fact-finding. There is a knowledge resonating within us, through us, and around us. It is here to experience. There is a true knowing within life and of love. Universal intelligence derives from life and nurtured by conscious energy input. We need not search, expect, or even demand it. Life and love are fundamentally energy. Therefore, there is always life. And, there is always love. The key is to look beyond the mind and simply know, accept, and allow everything to be.

Knowing

There is something I have inside.
You have it to, it would seem.
It is there both day and night.
Thus, joy fills each day.
The nights are peaceful; dreams abound.
What I have…what you have…is for us to feel.
It is a treasure.
It is love.
You cannot buy love.
It is not something that you simply find.
Rather it is love that has found you.
Love, you may say, is often so far away.
When it is there, why does it not stay?
Feeling love is thrilling.

Peace Is not a Place to Find

You can’t travel to a place called peace. Please, don’t even try. And, you won’t find it by looking, wishing or hoping. Peacefulness is, just like presence is presence. Likewise, enlightenment is enlightenment. These are one and the same. And, your state of being is not something you have, either you are it or you are not. (This last sentence is a useful stepping stone to conscious awakening.) So, what happens when you walk into a forest on a spring day? Strangely enough, 😊 you often relax and feel peaceful in the forest. But, why? Ask yourself these questions in such a moment. Am I being peaceful? Or, do I just think I am peaceful? There is a profound difference between thinking and being. Active awareness to the latter allows you to simply be peaceful and live in enlightenment.

Additionally, ask yourself these questions. Do I always think/feel happy when I walk in the forest? Furthermore, and importantly, must I first walk into the forest before I can relax? Foremost, how you answer the second question will reveal your overall state of being. Furthermore, ask this question. Am I always thinking and dreaming about how to be peaceful? Continue reading

And, it will surprise you to experience shorter and shorter intervals between moments of awakened consciousness.

Simply said, you can use one booklet paragraph a day as a conscious awakening focus point. Accordingly, you can apply the insight to any given situation when you are actively aware of your state of being. Continue reading

Talk, Talk, Talk, the Mind Never Stops

This article offers helpful stepping stones during the shift from the conditioned mind to conscious living. Have you truly awakened to consciousness? Be honest with yourself. This is not a trick question. How can you determine your conscious state of awareness to consciousness? And no, you have not necessarily awakened to consciousness just because the mind tells you that you are awake. Does it often seem that you and the mind talk to each other?

Well, how you answer this question is a useful stepping stone to determine your conscious awareness. Therefore, first let’s look at the path of stepping stones to conscious living. The following three jumping-off points can serve as an overview of the conscious awakening process. Continue reading

Smile and Feel the Softness in the Air

A smile is a gesture of happiness and good will. Therefore, it is more than just a facial expression. All objects manifesting life have the ability to channel universal energy and to allow it to flow. We can enter the dimension of life conscious energy in each moment.

A Smile

A smile, every so often, may take a while.
There are sometimes days when you just can’t grin.
Why, you say, on such a day…why should I care?
The expression on your face is straight.

It is true that, at times, a smile seems out of place.
Your mind tells you not to bother.
Who cares the mind will say?
But, this happens only when you listen to your head.
These thoughts overshadow the moment.
Then there is sorrow and dread.
This should not be, but alas, often we do not see.

A smile is the golden key.
There is a twinkle in our eyes.
So, we softly chuckle as life flows.
It is the reason that we know.
Here, in this mystery called now.

This is your home.
And, you choose how to live.
You will remember just be aware.
Life offers so much more when you care.
It is deep within and also around and about.
Do you feel it?

Magic lamp of Worry or Joy

Would you like to have a magic lamp? Of course, almost everyone has this wish. Our imagination runs wild because of the many possibilities. Did this creative fantasy spark the idea for the story of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp? Who knows? Still, astonishing as it sounds, the magic is in you. And, you are the lamp, figuratively speaking.

magic

Firstly, please open your imagination to the ideas I share with you. The mysterious magic that everyone has is one and the same. Additionally, there is something to clarify. You can worry, be happy or whatever you want or wish. Ultimately, these thoughts and feelings have nothing to do with the magic in you. Does this confuse you? Well, let’s shed light on the origin of this magical something in you. The magic is as old as the universe. Equally, this marvelous mystery is as new as this moment.  Don’t despair and continue to read. Your bewilderment will hopefully shift to awe.  Don’t worry. Living consciously is getting easier and easier because you are awake and aware.

The vision of a lamp represents your state of being. And the magical energy of presence is inside. Your awareness or lack of awareness determines if the magic will flow or not. Similarly, you determine the contents of your state of being. Yes, presence is constant. But, presence is nothing for us without awareness to it.

So, What Is the Magic Within you?

I can give you a personal experience to illustrate the difference between consciously living or mind-influenced living. I cut my hair a few days ago. There is a small wooden cabinet in my bathroom with two shelves. There is a jar of hair wax on the top shelve. So, there I was in the flow and aware of the moment. Accordingly, this means that thoughts, feelings, and my surroundings where secondary. Whereas, the presence of being was primary.

Thus, I waxed and styled my hair. Afterward, I placed the hair wax jar on the bottom shelve. But, this was too much for the mind. As a result, it screamed out. What are you doing? The mind insisted that the hair wax belongs on the top shelve. Fortunately, I was consciously aware of the mind’s activities. Otherwise, the mind would have drawn me into its drama of thoughts and feelings about an insignificant situation. (Ultimately, the details, thoughts, and feelings about everything are insignificant.) I let the hair wax jar on the bottom shelve and simply laughed at the mind’s behavior.

Practice Being Aware of the Magic

Do you see the sign post that the above example offers you? My mind’s opinion about the hair wax jar means nothing. Likewise, even my conscious state of awareness to the mind’s activities means nothing. This might first seem strange to you and even confusing. After all, don’t we wish to live in a state of conscious awareness? Yes, of course, But, please allow me to explain.

The experience of presence without any additives is the sign post to conscious enlightenment awareness. My mind’s thoughts, more specifically, my attention to these thoughts caused a restriction in the flow of presence. Hence, I shifted from being the moment (presence) to being the details within the moment (thoughts, feelings, and situations). Do you understand the difference? We can sum up this article with one sentence.

“Don’t think too much about thinking and don’t feel too much about feelings.”

Moth Is Lost Because the Lights Are Bright

This article pertains to an area of human behavior that is comparable to a moth. The moth repeatedly flies toward a light or campfire in a kamikaze manner. Why do they do this? Scientists theorize that this is due to a behavior called transverse orientation.  This is common in some insects and involves flying at a constant angle relative to a distant light source. The insect navigates by using the distant light source as a beacon. Thus, the moth experiences perplexity around lights and campfires. Doesn’t this sound like how we react to thoughts and feelings?

moth

Therefore, let’s look at this from a human standpoint. How is this behavior similar to our search for enlightenment? Enlightenment (spiritual) is the full comprehension of a situation (Wikipedia). We have a built-in navigation system that constantly points to true north. We can call this our transverse orientation, such as with a moth. Continue reading

Share and Be Aware of Living Life

I wish to express my gratitude to you. We share experiences. These encounters offer us mental and conscious expansion when we are aware. Hopefully, my ideas and insights are beneficial to you as stepping stones on your inner journey. Likewise, I learn from you through our interactions.

share

We share life. This is the greatest gift to experience. Sadly, we often become so occupied with existence details and distractions that we overlook the simple bliss of living life.

The activities of our existence confuse and cause fear. This is because we base everything on temporary superficiality and details. Thus, we define our life experience as something to reach with strenuous effort.  Mind Conditioning overshadows our life experience. So, most people view balance and harmony as a fantasy or paradise. Furthermore, the majority of people think or belief that we can only reach this paradise through mind details. And, still very prevalent is the thought or belief that materialistic things will give us happiness and peace. Continue reading

Blossom Just Like a Flower in the Spring

The unfolding of any person’s conscious awakening process may first involve illness or hardships. But a person free of sickness or financial burden may also become enlightened. Either is fine but not a prerequisite to experiencing conscious enlightenment. Life does not take sides or evaluate an object due to existential merits. It will happen when you are ready, or it will not; you decide. It is as simple as falling off a log; life is there to blossom through you.

Separation: Why Do We Feel so Alone?

Evolution in terms of society and technology contribute greatly to our separation from each other. Furthermore, humankind has grown deaf to the voice of unity. This separation illusion is ongoing. We, mostly unknowingly, separate ourselves from the universe. Equally, we generally disregard the flow of life energy.  We think and believe, that there is something greater out there waiting for us. We actually think that salvation is something we must reach. But, don’t let the mind fool you. enlightenment can only be here and now. Please consider letting go of worn-out dogmas that tell you otherwise.

“Nonetheless, our species has developed into a conforming conglomerate. We believe the path to salvation or enlightenment will always be difficult and involve many sacrifices.”

separation

Where and when did this misconception begin?  We pass this behavior down from generation to generation. So, what about object consciousness? Well, the mind mostly dominates our human consciousness. This humanizing process starts from birth and usually increases as we get older.  A stagnation develops that stops the flow of universal conscious energy. Thus, we degenerate from a pure universal conscious being to a mind conditioned human. Continue reading
