Free Yourself from the Mind and Simply Live

The word free in itself is just a word. The universal knowledge of what this entails is something quite different. The human heart, the mind, and consciousness all sense the truth of this word. Being free is something that only you can experience when you are ready. Serenity is there in each moment. The world of humankind will always demand. However, this is basically a mind-created illusion. The mind tells you that this is how you should see yourself and everything beyond your own form. This can change through a shift in self-perspective. The world will continue to demand if you allow it. This, however, does not mean that you must mentally or physically undertake any action or reaction to stop experiencing this feeling that the world wants something from you.

Awakening consciously involves recognizing and releasing the plaguing thoughts that often dominate our daily activities. The mind confuses the simplicity of oneness with the complexity of life-form existence. A simple shift in awareness and observing how you react to thoughts can open up more and more space in each experience. Continue reading

Co-creating all Experiences

I wish to share a personal experience with you. This experience signifies how we are co-creating through the vibrations of energy.  I had various obligations recently involving several appointments.  Furthermore, I also needed to travel to the next city via subway for the last appointment. I had intended to cancel this appointment. But, then decided to just let things unfold.

co-creating

Everything went well during the morning. I then rode a bus to the train station for the last appointment. There, I purchased a ticket and started up the ramp to board the subway. I glanced at the electronic subway schedule display. To my surprise, there was a message flashing on all the displays that read.

“All subways and trains are not running due to a technical malfunction.”

Instantly a smile spread across my face. I felt a free-falling sensation within the space of conscious awareness. Wow! It was obvious that I co-created this experience. Please let me explain. I had not actually wanted to go to this appointment. And, this is the energy vibration that had manifested from me.  I felt fortunate to have become aware of this energy vibration over the last few days. Hence, I could smile and clearly understand the subway technical malfunction. This was my co-creation. Continue reading

Walking Barefoot on Grass! Oh, What a Feeling

Beyond the realm of the mind is a magical mystery. We interpret and define it through words such as consciousness, oneness, and even love. It is a softness in the air that surrounds everything. This softness is always there, even when we have forgotten. Its softness is like a rose petal after a spring shower. Do you remember the quietness of walking barefoot on Grass?

Grass

We experience tranquility as a spring breeze embraces our body and awakens our soul. The leaf of a tree slowly unfolds; it offers us beauty untold. Close your eyes and release the mind’s hold; there you will find riches sweeter than gold. Continue reading

Focusing on Life: Are You Ready?

More awareness to life allows consciousness to thrive. Take a deep breath for a moment before the mind takes over. Focusing on life has nothing to do with daily details; mind or otherwise. Instead we are referring to object consciousness guiding our interactions with “being” alive. You have probably read/heard the following insight. Become conscious of consciousness. Consciousness will work hand in hand with the mind once the awakening process starts. Thus, the mind no longer dominates the experience of living. Yes, the mind will still function. And, the mind does this better than ever before because it has accepted the role of co-pilot.

focusing

Hence, the mind, can and will relearn and gradually trust this field of universal intelligence. The conditioned mind misinterprets life and manipulates or restricts conscious awareness. We never really overcame the shock initiated by the knowledge of our human self in perspective to the universe (self-awareness).

This is probably why the mind established its dominance over our state of being alive. We literally fell back into a deep sleep (consciously speaking) instead of self-awareness blossoming. The beginning of our evolution was an explosive array of human characteristic development.  This literally overwhelmed our newly blossomed consciousness. So, the mind overpowered consciousness and has dominated it since. But, more and more people are experiencing a change. Clarity, spaciousness, and creativity are blossoming as we experience true presence. Still, it is frightening for many people to let go and live beyond thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. However, the desire to be free of mind conditioning is reconnecting us with something deep within. Fear fades and we don’t take thoughts too seriously. Continue reading

Affirmation of Presence Through Awareness

Awareness of presence is an affirmation of your true essence. This is, likewise, known as consciousness. However, we should not take labels and concepts too seriously. Furthermore, enlightenment is an experience beyond mind and body. It is not dependent on anything. You can only truly realize and experience what you are now. Therefore, enlightenment, presence, and your essence are infinite in nature.

affirmation

Presence is a constant that will never change. Furthermore, the essence of consciousness can only thrive now. You may be asking how this can benefit you. A life-form that is aware of this unmanifested void of energy will nurture object consciousness. Eckhart Tolle stated that if you are not living this moment, you are not really living. Therefore, we can say that the awareness of presence is vital for object consciousness evolution. What does this mean for you? Let’s put this into perspective. We can express the affirmation of presence in the following sentence. “It is only possible for you to be you now because the now can only be now.” Continue reading

Energy, Mind, and Consciousness: It’s Really You

Traits such as empathy, love, and forgiveness in the purest form may be very conducive to conscious awakening universal conscious energy. The, for lack of a better word, problem that we experience derives from corrupted frequencies of these behavioral characteristics. The mind is very dominating, and reactions based solely on conditioning and unconsciousness usually are not pure.

mind

The mind insists that there is separation. This behavior results because of the localized brain/body field of consciousness (object consciousness). Nonetheless, this energy field contributes and can influence the totality which we call universal consciousness. The two frequencies are actually one, but our self-consciousness gives us the ability to experience both the localized field of consciousness and universal consciousness. The mind tells us that these are two dimensions when in actuality they are only one. Continue reading

You Exist but Are You Truly Living?

Everything is happening as it should happen. Moreover, we are experiencing everything according to our specific vibrations. We exist.  But often we are not aware of being alive. This may sound very silly. But, please stop listening to the mind clattering away and tune into the vibrations of life.

exist

Our behavior is still mostly repetitive and unconscious. Yes, it is correct to say that we laugh, we cry, and often we are afraid. But are we actually experiencing life? Everyone will have a slightly different answer. So, how alive are we? This will depend on the level of our conscious awareness. The mind is always analyzing. Still, we cannot interpret or define the act of living or being conscious. Nor, should we try. Therefore, the mind distracts us. Thus, it seems that we strive to obtain the knowledge of life. But, in actuality, this mind-game keeps us catching our own tail without knowing why. There is a down-side to this phenomenon. The mind manipulates us with details. Thus, we cannot truly experience life. Continue reading

Magical Forest on the Journey Home

This is a one of the many poems in my latest book Love Will Show you the Way. I am hopeful that the book will be helpful to others on their inner journey of self-discovery and conscious living. Have you ever entered a forest and felt the mystery of life?

forest

There is a place of magic and mystery that awaits you each day. It is calling to you. Therefore, it would be best for you to go. There is so much to remember. Mother Nature nurtures and cares. But she can be unmerciful. Always remember that you are her guest; be wise and respectful. Many people have childhood memories of woodlands where they could go to escape into this fantasy world. Here life is pure and simple. It was easy to unite with everything as one. There we would play, sing, and forget the day. This place was an experience without thoughts that distract.

This seems so long ago. Do you think everything has changed? You may say that it seems we have grown older. However, the youthfulness of life lives on forever. Continue reading

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
