Laugh, Cry and Please Share the Togetherness

We are 7.7 billion worldwide. You would think that it would be possible to learn how to come together as one race. Yet, this is not true. We are becoming more isolated because of this large number. This trend is increasing. Yes, there are caring and loving people. But, these individuals often choose to remain reclusive. Still, we do mingle. Moreover, we sometimes laugh and cry when we are together. But, sharing often remains on a superficial level. Especially, upon first meeting someone.

laugh

There are always the formalities. We are usually willing to tell someone our name, how old we are, where we work, etc. Naturally, this is fine. It is part of the human experience. On the other hand, this and other factors have kept us in a repetitive cycle. The mind (ego, conditioning) thrive in these surroundings. However, to the contrary, awareness to and expansion of object consciousness withers. Thus, the mind dominates. It reminds of us of previous situations when we experienced suffering.

Articles too Lengthy, too Short or Just Right

I wish to thank everyone for the messages and emails that I receive. I smile from time to time because occasionally someone asks why my articles are so lengthy. But, I don’t smile because I am making fun of this person. The smile results from the sensation of object consciousness as it expands and flows through him or her and me.

articles

It is a process that we each experience. Furthermore, it is unavoidable during the transition from mind to conscious awareness. Whether you consider my articles to be short, lengthy or just right mostly depends on the answer to the following question. Do you read the articles from the mind or consciousness? Continue reading

Bird Song and the Mockery of Time

Worldwide there are 10,000 bird species. Similarly, there are an estimated 100 to 400 billion on the Earth. It is astonishing. Now imagine all of them singing in the same moment. That would surely produce quite a sound.

bird

Still, let’s consider one single bird. It happily sings its song. This opportunity presented itself to me last week. I was reflecting on a few text changes in my third book manuscript. It was around dusk. I could hear one bird in particular singing its song. Then there was a pause. Followed by a random sequence of chirping. Once again, there was a pause. Then it would sing its song once again. The experience was very pleasurable. It was quite soothing. I then felt myself uniting with the moment that was unfolding. We can call this a conscious assimilation between objects. It is a wonderful experience. The portal to consciousness opens and invites you to enter. Continue reading

Afraid? But Why? Moreover, Why Now?

People and animals do indeed experience fear. The Species-Specific Defense Reactions (S.S.D.R.) is perhaps at the root of this reaction. Could the consciousness level of a life-form alter this behavior? Most of us are probably be more interested in eliminating the clouds of fear that darken our daily activities. Would a shift in our awareness alleviate the need to be afraid?

afraid

Our conscious development obviously has an influence on fear. Mind conditioning causes us to dread almost everything at some level.  Please don’t misunderstand this statement. Fear was, is and will always be a part of our species; at least from a biological standpoint. Still, what about the psychological ramifications? Continue reading

Appreciation of Life: It Is Your Responsibility

There are truly many forms of appreciation. A few examples would be sharing a smile, helping someone in need or giving someone a compliment. I wish to offer my appreciation to everyone and everything I have encountered throughout my existence. The interaction with my mind had once caused me difficulties and confusion. Not to mention, conflicts that arose with people and situations. It seems so long ago in hindsight.

appreciation

These difficulties resulted from unobserved thoughts and emotions. Furthermore, this occurs in everyone as a consequence of a conditioned mind and ego. The ego has an insatiable appetite for power and control. Likewise, this behavior also deters awareness to the flowing rhythm of universal energy. These are the perils of human existence which we face on a daily basis. Still, it is possible to literally appreciate everything; irrespective of the labels. Continue reading

Evolution of Consciousness: It Is Blossoming

What is evolution? Everything evolves in some manner. Doesn’t it? Dictionary.com offers several definitions for evolution.

  1. Any process of formation or growth; development
  2. A product of such development; something evolved
  3. A motion incomplete in itself, but combining with coordinated motions to produce a single action, as in a machine.
  4. Biology. Change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift.

These are but a few of the definitions used for evolution. How has consciousness evolved? Likewise, how can it change our experience of life? Could we go so far as to say that universal consciousness is the catalyst for evolution? 

evolution

I, as I am sure you, continue to awaken and become more aware of consciousness. Thus, this too must be a form of evolution.  The universe is 99.9 percent nothingness. This is amazing to consider. But, it is even more incredible to simply experience how nothingness manifests into somethingness. There are more and more scientists / physicists who are basically saying that consciousness creates reality. Continue reading

Law of Attraction: Around and Around It Goes

Almost everyone has heard of the law of attraction. But, is it only a spirituality cliché or does it hold true merit?

“The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like” which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.” – Wikipedia

law

Hence, the law of attraction is an interesting phenomenon that very likely occurs in any and every moment. You attract what you focus on.  Whether you know it or not. The energy you release is what will return to you. We and all living organism are the catalysts. Still, a life-form with a higher level of object consciousness will influence universal energy more than a life form with less. Likewise, there is a further benefit relating to higher object consciousness.  It offers the possibility to actively observe how this energy influences this dimension. The very fact that we can be aware of consciousness allows us to experience the results of the law of attraction. Continue reading

Flowing Energy Is Everywhere

Everything is energy and energy is everything. Einstein gave us a universal formula for energy. Likewise, individuals interested in physics, more precisely quantum physics, know the significance of flowing energy. Moreover, energy manifests through every object; living and also the so called non-living. It binds the universe…oops. Sorry, I almost quoted Yoda from Star Wars.

flowing

“In the standard Lambda-CDM model of cosmology, the total mass–energy of the universe contains 5% ordinary matter and energy, 27% dark matter and 68% of an unknown form of energy known as dark energy.”
Wikipedia

The fact is that we cannot dismiss the ramifications of flowing energy in the universe. What would happen when we take away the illusion of solid matter? Universal energy remains preserved and continual. Hence, energy is transferable. It is absolute and ever-flowing. This is regardless of the forms through which it manifests. Continue reading

Enlightenment: All Paths Lead Back to You

Many people wish to reach spiritual bliss. We interpret this as something that will give us peace and happiness. However, must you feel good or must everything be blissful before you can experience enlightenment? This is unlikely because a universe of objects is not permanent. There will always be changes occurring that can cause confusion and discomfort at the level of a life-form.

enlightenment

Enlightenment, regarding living consciously, does not necessarily become obvious only when we are blissful and without worry. The relationship with yourself, this moment, the universe and life contribute to consciously experiencing living and loving. A state of enlightenment is a constant. You either acknowledge, accept and allow enlightenment or not. But, it will be difficult to experience if you are not willing to accept both the limitations of your existence and the divinity of being. Continue reading

Nike Wisdom: Just Do It

The act of thinking can cause us to detour away from consciousness. Likewise, this can be very manipulative and restrictive. You are alive! Living is primarily about being. Obviously, we do not really need to think about living. This discussion is an extension of the recent article Restrictions of Life and love. This long-running (no pun intended) Nike tennis shoe commercial offers us a universal wisdom of living.

Nike wisdom

The company’s philosophy is “Just Do It”. Nike naturally wants to promote the sale of shoes. Still, the simplicity of this insight is profound in regards to existence. Likewise, this wisdom can be very beneficial in our conscious awakening process. Also, living becomes simplified when we just do it (just allow it). Yet, additionally, there is something for us to consider. To simply be and to allow does not necessarily imply doing anything. Presence implies doing through the simple act of being. Continue reading
