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

Thought Compression or Conscious Relaxation?

Ask this question. How do I wish to live? Let’s compare the mind to a computer. It has a program (conditioning) used for the compression of data (thoughts). However, the mind usually overloads us with too many thoughts. Why? Simply because we are not consciously aware. We could also call this living consciously or freedom from mind interference.

compression

Otherwise, the mind will attempt to compress more and more thoughts into your conscious state of being (presence). This compression can be an advantage for the storage and transfer of data on a computer. However, it can be very burdening for a life-form with a deeper level of consciousness. Why? Simply because consciousness suggests that an object has the potential to be self-aware. Self-consciousness, in turn, causes us to ask why. Continue reading

Muddy Water and Cloudy Consciousness

Everyone has experienced the effect of muddy water. It distorts a clear perception of any body of water; whether flowing or passive. Unclear water is a result of interaction with the waters nature state of existence. This could be any number of things such as dirt, sand or decomposed wood. This is an excellent example in considering how object existence can influence the flow of life energy consciousness as it expands.

 

muddy

Imagine a clear mountain spring with a small stream flowing from it. The water is crystal clear.  The stream meanders down the mountain side. It is in the nature of things for the pure water to pick up object content as it flows. This could be leaves, wood, sand etc. We could refer to this content as details of the water. The water will assimilate any object to reduce unnecessary manipulation or restriction of its flowing. The properties of any given object become that of the water and visa-versa. 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

Togetherness within the Totality of Life

The key to living in harmony with life is based on togetherness. It goes hand in hand with object existence and consciousness. What is togetherness? This is not the superficial act of being together with other people and things in the universe. Still, the sheer inseparable nature of existence is oneness. Everything is essentially and ultimately absolute.

togetherness

But, our emotions, conditioned behavior, and ego induces separation. This causes blockage in the natural flow of universal energy. This, in turn, causes an imbalance in our localized field of object consciousness. We know that there is a natural frequency of life. But, it seems difficult to find and more so to remain in the flow. What this frequency consist of is secondary. The splendor lies in consciously observing this frequency. It is essential to understand the significance of true togetherness that is within this dimension. Eckhart Tolle refers to something similar to this in his book “Realizing the Power of Now”.

Alive: That’s What It Is All About

You are alive. It’s great! Isn’t it? Or, do we sometime forget that it is wonderful? This article is a follow up to our discussion about enlightenment. You live. Moreover, it is possible for you to be aware; to be conscious; at least sometimes. You know this because you smell the flowers, you laugh and you feel pain. Your memory recalls sights and smells. These are part of our human experience. Still, each and every encounter is also an enlightened experience.

alive

It is best to emphasize again and again that spiritual awakening has nothing to do with reaching a divine state. Rather, it is the acknowledgement that every moment is about accepting life’s divinity. Otherwise, a person may spend an entire existence trying to find the secret of living. The act of being alive is the manifestation of life. This is not something that you define, plan or expect. It is simply about being that which 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

Ambush of the Mind: Know the Signs

A few people have written to me about a quote from Alan Watts relating to muddy water. Firstly, it is beneficial to remember that words and things are vulnerable to assumptions and interpretations. This acknowledgment can be helpful in conscious expansion. However, the mind will ambush us in any and every moment. This is our conditioning. We are usually not aware of the mind’s intervention. Therefore, we remain a victim of its deception. This can happen during an unconscious reaction to any word, thought, person or situation. Here is the quote.

“Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”
– Alan Watts

ambush

You can read this insight in his book “The Way of Zen” He shared wisdom that originates from universal intelligence. We can also tap into it in any moment. Yet, the mind interferes. This compels us to analyze and dissect. It is wise to leave the muddy water of life undisturbed (in peace). It does not suggest that we should avoid or deny something. The mud, as a term, could signify the details of our existence. He originally wrote this to indicate that society judge’s meditation and passiveness as wasteful and non-productive. Continue reading

Sharing Everything: The Whole Shebang

It is all about sharing; isn’t it? I ask this question in reference to life. Everyone may have a different understanding of what life represents. Still, an object exists. Therefore, it has the potential to live. Hence, everything is sharing this energy; as with all objects and species, great or small.  I tend to feel that even a totally lifeless form is alive at a molecular level. The reason for this is that life is a universal vibration. It is to say that the universal totality is sharing energy. Thus, Life resonates through living and non-living forms.

sharing

Likewise, this vibrating impulse is constant. Nevertheless, it is susceptible to fluctuations. This is due to object output vibrations; whether from thought, consciousness or any other forms of output. A given reality, for example, takes on a portrait derived from your thoughts. Therefore, it seems so real. Hence, each person can; by process of individual and shared thoughts, manifest different realities. These are based on the given projected energy fluctuation; whether personal or collective. Moreover, the energy output is often two-fold. This being either mind or consciousness. We are still unsure if these are different or one and the same. Continue reading

Puzzle Pieces to Conscious Awakening

This article is lesson 3 in our contemplation of the conscious awakening process. You have become aware of the difference between mind and consciousness. Otherwise, you would not be reading this article and thus questioning the mind-made details of your existence. The puzzle pieces are falling into place. You are now aware of this mind-made puzzle. Nevertheless, the mind can still obscure our conscious observation. However, this is changing with each experience that expands your object consciousness.

puzzle

Life and love are an ongoing sharing experience. Furthermore, the expansion of object consciousness is allowing us to experience more and more unmanifested space. This is a profound realization for us to reconnect with our essence. Moreover, we are observing our existence in a state of awareness. Therefore, we are recognizing how and why something manifests. You feel the puzzle pieces falling into place naturally. Additionally, we become conscious to our influence on everything. It is very empowering to become aware of how the pieces of this process fall into place. Continue reading
