Unification Through Conscious Awakening

It is possible to reestablish a harmonious relationship with life. We are co-creating in a unified field of oneness. We use the word Unification in many areas of our daily experiences, including spirituality. But what is the essence of this word? Stop now, before you start listening to your mind thinking about unity. This is not something to think about, assume, or even define. Let’s attempt the Star Wars Jedi Knight approach. This suggests feeling the life energy in you and in everything that is around you.

unification

Live truly consciously in the moment and experience the unification that is already within and surrounds you. This is the way as taught by Lao Tzu and other sages. The body experiences energy impulses. It does not need to interpret what is there, nor does the body need to consider what it does. It simply does it. Life and universal energy manifest through the being that you are in this moment. A cooperative conscious aware state of being opens a direct portal. Hence, life-forms such as you and I freely communicate with universal energy. This is to say, when we are aware, acknowledge, and allow.  Thus, we become all things in a moment of true unity.

A Conditioned Mind Sways from Place to Place

There is one love, one consciousness, and one state of being. Humans, animals, plants, and the entire universe are a part of this oneness. We need one another to share, grow, and mature in our experiences of love, unity, and life. We consider that the two parts of duality as necessary to balance the universal scale. But this type of conditioned thinking may be nothing more than another mind game.

conditioned

I do not wish to suggest that such a thing as feminine/masculine or yin/yang do not exist, but rather I would like to ask why these exist. We have actually defined energy as having male and female characteristics. Again, my wish is not to deny established concepts. But, I do question how and why we always interpret and define such things. The slow process of conditioned behavior and reactions has been ongoing throughout our species’ development. This has resulted from our unawareness to the unbounded and unmanifested space within each moment. This is where life energy is always present, and object consciousness has a much stronger influence on universal consciousness than most people realize. Continue reading

Bees and Butterflies: Pain or Pleasure?

Bees and butterflies fly around your head. Are you afraid. Or do you feel delight? Does the buzz of a bee cause you frustration? The flight of a butterfly probably gives you delight. But why? Well, our reaction to the bee or the butterfly illustrate conditioned behavior. Both bee and butterfly are symbolic and insignificant. Does this surprise you? Let this statement sink in for a moment before we continue. Experiences are temporary in reference to the details of a situation. But, the moment is real in reference to the spaciousness within the experience.

bees

Bees fly from flower to flower. Butterflies fly from place to place. Why do we differentiate between the two? The bee causes fear. Not because the bee is fearful. But, because we think that it is dreadful. So, we make the experience personal. The bee wants to sting us. Or, at least, this is what we think. But, the thought is an illusion. Thus, insignificant to the present experience. However, lets be fair to the bee by given an example of the butterfly. A butterfly glides around our head. We think of joy. But, this joy is also temporary, also an illusion. Continue reading

Dwell Within Life and Be Fully Alive

You live and then you cease to live. This is the simplicity of our existence. Therefore, we can say that you are now alive. Also, this seems logical and plausible. Basically, it is everything in a nutshell. Then why is it difficult to accept how life manifests in our existence? After all, believe it or not. You are responsible for how something unfolds. Or, at the least, you are responsible for how you observe something when it manifests. Are you consciously aware or unconsciously unaware? Do you dwell fully within life? This suggests living regardless of the form in which it manifests. Or are you a spiritless existence?

dwell

(Spiritless adj: Lacking energy or enthusiasm; listless. Lacking liveliness, charm, or surprise. I.e. “Complaining and anxious to suit your own thoughts, feelings, and opinions or those of others.”)

You are an object that experiences life. This means that you can mentally and self-consciously live life. Therefore, you will experience happiness, sadness, sickness, and death. However, this is not really you. The true you (universal self) is now manifesting through a temporary doorway called mind and body. Furthermore, what happens to this life-form does not define you. Unless you choose and allow it. This does not mean that you should resist what occurs. Rather, accept and dwell within everything because this nurtures conscious awareness. This suggests that simply living life is the grandest experience. Trust me, the sudden spaciousness and freedom within the acceptance of life will be awesome. Just let everything be.

Storybook Experiences of the Mind

Stories, stories, and more stories. Everyone loves a good story. We (mind) love to tell a good story. Furthermore, the stories we tell are part of our own personal storybook. The stories are a combination of every person’s experiences. A conditioned mind orchestrates these experiences according to its own design.

storybook

There would normally be no story or storybook if we were able to live in the moment. Likewise, anything other than the isness of now is a story. We create the paragraphs, the chapters, and the book itself. It is a book of fiction. But, the mind insists it’s real. Alas, it seems very tangible. However, most of what the mind tells us is not what has or what will happen. Nothing in this storybook is as it seems unless we decide that it has or will happen.

You may ask, Steve, what are you saying? I am not responsible for the people, situations or experiences that take place in each moment. It is true that any individual cannot truly change the behavior of a person. Nor, the details of a situation. However, it is possible for each person to change his or her point of perspective in each moment. It is very difficult for the mind to accept that nothing and everything is happening each second. Still, the key is in realizing that it is each person’s conscious awareness that determines the outcome of an experience. Continue reading

Oneness Flows Just Let Consciousness Show

There is a flow of conscious life energy vibrating through everything. Every life-form contributes to this energy flow, knowingly or unknowingly. This energy is a flowing stream of oneness. There is a life-being that diverts enormous amounts of localized energy into explaining and defining why it lives and loves. (Do you know which life-form I am writing about? I can give you a hint. Look in the mirror.) We want to know why we live and why we love. This behavior is similar to a dog chasing its own tail because the conditioned mind demands it but consciously knows that it will never catch it.

oneness

Never underestimate how amazing you can be in each moment. You, through human consciousness, stand on the threshold to pure universal consciousness in each moment. Furthermore, you can release the confines of the mind, allowing object consciousness and life consciousness to reunite in a state of pure awareness. You are manifesting content into the vacuum of space, thereby creating everything from nothingness. How do we awaken and become consciously aware of this dimension? Continue reading

Free Floating Beyond the Mind Using Your S.O.S.

How can we be fully conscious and still have a partnership with our mind? We can illustrate the simplicity of free choice through the following insight. Let’s use the abbreviation S.O.S. as a point of presence. And no, s.o.s. does not mean Save Our Ship in this discussion. Rather, these letters are stepping stones to presence as we move beyond the mind. Therefore, in any situation, we should observe the relationship between our self and the experience. S.O.S. is your life preserver to aid in floating above turbulent mind-created waves of thoughts and feelings. This exercise is useful as we learn to calmly float through life without assistance.

free

It is a complicated world. “My” life is so complex. Do these comments sound familiar? We desire enlightenment but claim it is impossible to reach. We think and believe that we are literally, what we think and believe. Conditioned living causes these repetitious patterns. We are not in touch with our true essence. This is nothing more than a human evolution inflection. Furthermore, everyone and especially sensitive people are more susceptible to these behavior side effects. But, it is just a mind-game. Moreover, we can be free of this mental reaction pattern.  Actually, it is very simply.

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

Declaration of Conscious Awakening

The American Declaration of Independence is a proclamation of freedom. Humankind is entering a new era of awakened consciousness. Thus, we can freely proclaim an affirmation of independence. This liberation is from everyone and everything. Moreover, it is a release from the mind-created self-image. It would allow us to experience self-sustainability as a universal being.

declaration

We have spent thousands of years existing according to the whims of the mind. And yet there has always been a desire to live free of mind limits. But we have not established a clear declaration of conscious awareness. Still, we are awakening more and more to a conscious reality. This inner universe has mostly remained hidden due to mind-conditioned thinking. Continue reading

Ghosts of the Mind: Don’t Let Them Haunt You

 

There are ghosts. But they are only of the mind. But be careful. They will possess you.  This will cloud the clarity of consciousness. A mind clouded by thoughts and emotions will also concede quickly to the influence of other minds. This results from conditioned imprints. Consciousness is vulnerable to the trickery of these mind-created impressions.

ghosts

The unconscious behavior of another person can also cause these apparitions. Mind-conditioning summons these ghosts. And they thrive in the realm of unconsciousness. This can happen in any given situation. These phantoms of the mind seem to always be lurking in the shadows of an unaware person. Continue reading
