Run and try to Hide

The evolution of mind and body has been a long path. Likewise, there are many behavior patterns that were necessary for our survival. However, this state of existence has resulted from our conditioned reactions. Nevertheless, prehistoric humankind would run and hide to survive.

run

Nevertheless, this has consequently hampered conscious evolution. Moreover, conditioned behavior causes us to run at the slightest indication of physical danger. Furthermore, our mental well-being is based on conditioned factors. This includes our conscious state of presence. However, our instinct told us to run and hide. This was the only option during the earlier development of our existence. Continue reading

Personal Is Never Personal

Don’t take it so personal. Most people are familiar with this statement. It seems to happen often each day. Nevertheless, we usually don’t realize the potential for conscious awakening that is within this comment. Furthermore, it is our interpretation and state of unawareness that makes it seem very personal.

personal

Yes, of course, there are people that will do something to you with malicious intent. However, even this is not personal. It is your interpretation and lack of awareness of a person or thing that makes it seem personal. You are observing a person’s short-shortsightedness in that moment. The other person is not doing this intentionally and you should not take it too personally. Continue reading

Crossroad: Where Do You Wish to Go?

A sharing process invokes expansion. Moreover, this development is two fold. Therefore, the mind (intelligence) and consciousness (object and universal) can benefit. Furthermore, we wish to experience universal consciousness and the divinity of our existence. We can achieve this by shifting from mind-generated energy (thought patterns and conditioning restrictions) into (uninhibited) awareness. This could be considered an evolutionary crossroad.

crossroad

The mind is a marvelous work of evolution. However, thoughts, emotions, ego and primarily conditioned reactions inhibit the flow of life and awakening to consciousness. The one or the other may appear to contribute in our development; but they also have a down side. Many traits have evolved through processes of conditioning, manipulation and restrictions. Therefore, we should become aware, observe and restore balance and harmony in our existence. Continue reading

Alone Among Billions of People

Do you feel alone? Does this often occur? It is likely that you take this very personal and equally serious. It is probable that you think this loneliness is only happening to you in that moment. Well, it may comfort you to know that there are billions of people that think they are lonely. However, let’s emphasis “think” because it is a mind-conditioned illusion.

alone

Let’s break this down into two statements for discussion purpose.

 1. You are alone. (person-oriented)

2. You are never alone. (energy/spiritual-oriented)

An incidence of loneliness and despair occurs because the majority of people want to be lonely. Yes, you have read this correctly. Loneliness is a choice. Furthermore, it is one of many mind games that you either play or not. It is basically just thoughts and emotions. Additionally, it is possible that fundamental behavior and social structures contribute to our seclusion. Nonetheless, these factors are strictly based on human nature. The mind is very convincing. It insists that others must accept and love you. Continue reading

Searching for Purpose

We are constantly searching for a purpose. The mind thinks that there is a reason for everything. These thoughts have become conditioned reactions. The collective belief is that there can be nothing without a reason. Furthermore, we sadly occupy each moment with the demanding need to have a function. We base the structures of our entire existence and the universe on this very assumption. This necessitated the establishment of mathematics, science and religion. However, the minds attempts to explain the unexplainable have proven faulty.

searching

We become entrapped in the confines of these limitations. Therefore, this behavior pattern remains active in the background of our experiences. Nevertheless, it is reasonable to conclude that we have practical “purposes” in our daily activities. There are numerous experiences that fit into this category. However, there is also the search for a grand purpose. Most people would say there is a grand purpose in my life. There is no grand reason for life. Therefore, to assume that our existence is based on grandeur is purely subjective. Continue reading

Wanting and Demanding

Have you every considered the excessive behavior associated with wanting and demanding? We are insatiable. Our detailed existence offers us so much content; yet most people seem so discontent. This statement may cause frustration or even anxiety in you. This is because the mind will offer thoughts that insist that you are happy. It will deny wanting anything. The internet dictionary defines discontent as “A restless longing for better circumstances.”

wanting

 

Resentment is a synonym of discontent . It is defined as “bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly.” Why do we always demand something new or different? Is it because we think people, situations and even life are treating us unfairly or cruelly? Furthermore, there is also an unquenchable need to search for something, anything that might satisfy the unhappiness that seems to thrive on our discontentment like a parasite.

I have included a poem below that was in the original manuscript of my first book (One Moment in Life). The published book has two poems; one at the beginning and one at the end. Continue reading

Automatic Random Output

The title “Automatic Random Output” suggests that we are going to discuss computer calculations. However, it is a reference to conditioned mind behavior. The title is a proper description of our mind activities. A person usually accepts conditioned mind behavior as normal; even necessary. Furthermore, we interact with the flow of mind output similarly to the behavior of a laboratory mouse.

Thoughts and feelings programmed through conditioned behavior are similar to a carrot placed in front of a donkey to get it to move forward. Furthermore, the mind is able to keep us distracted with this old worn-out information. Object consciousness; when unaware, will attach itself to a random mind / thought or emotion. We often remain in this unaware state of being for most of our existence. The mind continues to generate and regenerate thoughts and emotions. This behavior is automatic because it is a conditioned reaction. Continue reading

The Path to Becoming Conscious

We use the word “path” to describe the way from here to there. A path indicates a beginning and usually an eventual ending. This could be called an arrival. It is obvious that we also choose this terminology in describing our experiences with the conscious awakening process. However, it is beneficial for us not to lose ourselves in the definition itself. A journey is a proper word to use here, but it is never about the “path”. Being conscious is very likely not even about the experiences on this path. The experiences are only useful as sign posts during this journey.

path

Is there a necessity to travel down a path during the conscious awakening process? This question is ultimately unnecessary because it is a mind creation. A tree, a bird or even a rock does not practice becoming conscious. They do not spend each moment of existence in thoughts about being conscious or aware. These life-forms simply “are” life and consciousness. They are engulfed in the suchness of now. I have a deep appreciation for this expression of presence. Continue reading

Duality or Life: Wake up and Smell the Roses!

The mind has a tendency to induce duality in our existence. However, we are always unity with life. Duality is only a mind illusion. Life essence is home to the one self. The birth of each person signifies a false journey that supposedly will return us home. We have never really been traveling on any type of journey. Moreover, the idea of a specific path or purpose in life overshadows our existence.

duality

 

The manifestation of conscious energy through an object offers the opportunity for conscious energy to experience itself; provided a life-form has reached a given level of self-consciousness. Furthermore, we were born for this one grand accomplishment. Our human evolution has given us the opportunity to perhaps achieve full consciousness, although there is no guarantee. Continue reading
