A Path of Discovery

"If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them." ~Mohandas K. Gandhi.

When we focus on the flaws and deficiencies of others, it holds us away from spiritual connection and strength. Spiritually disconnected people will always find the worst in others. Finding deficiencies in others and ourselves will be a norm since that will be all that we see.

To increase our spiritual strength and joy, cultivate the habit of seeing others good and look for the best in them. Get conscious about the way we see others and situations we encounter during the day.

Control the powers of your own perceptions even when someone has condemned, blamed or criticized you. It is easy to fly off the handle and then apologize later. It takes more strength to make an effort and see the best or the Divinity within.

Jerry is the shepherd above. Do you see his flaws, or do you see his beauty? It is easy to see his beauty, but what about the people around you? They are just as beautiful. When others act inappropriately you will see the people around you as children on their path of discovery, just like you, when you are connected in spirit.

The World is in You

Last evening was long but it was fantastic. I had the pleasure to see and experience the presence of Deepak Chopra. He is absolutely incredible. He explains consciousness so that a nine year old could understand It; in a well formatted progressive manner without a whole lot of jargon and big words. It was like taking 'the stairs of understanding' to a deeper state of consciousness.

If we want to change the world we must first shift in our own consciousness. We will then be a reflection of light cast onto the world around us. Many of us try to change the world without changing ourselves but only the reverse is true. Why is this so true? Because when we dwell in the deeper state of consciousness, the closer we are to union consciousness; which is manifestation of peace, love, harmony and joy. When we understand that the world is in us and that we are not of this world, we will 'be' local and non-local at the same time, or spirit and physical at the same time. We realize the world is our extended body. The rivers are our circulation and the trees are our lungs. We share the same breath of life with each other all over this cosmic universe. We begin to feel less restricted and limited, and are intoxicated with love.

Who we are can change the people around us without us being affecting by others' limiting perceptions. When we do not know our True Self we are disconnected and we are at the mercy of others' emotions and behavior. We also remain in the ego. The ego likes certainty and addiction. It also likes security, attachment, sameness, predictability and seeks instant gratification.

When we dwell in unity consciousness, we know we possess infinite possibilities, we know everything because we have access to the unlimited field of consciousness of knowledge, we welcome uncertainty, we are infinite creativity and we take responsibility for co-creation.

Many mansions means many states of consciousness. What state of consciousness are you at? Are you under the control of your or others emotions and behavior? Or are you at One with Life? Do you see and feel consciousness in the words you read, the ink on the paper, the book you hold and the chair you sit in? Consciousness is everything; what was, is and will be. It is All That Is. Every molecule, cell and atom is consciousness. Grasp that, for that is Truth.

Design Your Life

Design Your Life
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Because many people don't know they are creating their own life out of default, they continue to do it over and over, living a life of dissatisfaction and discontent. They are the ping pong balls hit back and forth from circumstance to circumstance designed by someone else.

Let's not only get educated about who and what we really are, let's start listening to our innate abilities. Our natural instincts are knocking on our intellect asking to be heard.

"The entire world is brimming with aliveness in the orgasmic sense."
-Alfred North Whitehead

I love this quote. We can live a life in an orgasmic sense but we have been so conditioned to think that it is hard, labored and just plain old fate that is creating our circumstances. We then brood over it believing we have no control over what is happening. Wake Up and smell the ammonia! We create our own reality.

Yes, it takes effort, discipline and much control--letting go of negative emotions, training the free flowing negative thoughts to our advantage by slowing them down, biting our tongue more often and sometimes walking away from a situation when needed. It's about dispelling the negative energy by being in the present, here and now! Not identifying ourselves with everything that floats by. Since we are hear, would we rather complain, judge and blame, causing more grief, or just pull up our socks and give it a try! No one is asking for perfection. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Who in your life can you be affecting in a positive way by taking control of your life and doing something about it? Perhaps your children. If you don't have any reason to do it for your self then find a catalyst. What is going to inspire and move you from the inside out to change your life and live with aliveness in the orgasmic sense?

Beauty in Writing

Beauty in Writing
Wake Up to Live

I was rereading the book Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine by Deepak Chopra yesterday for some research. Chopra writes with grace, eloquence and clarity keeping you enchanted. I explain it this way because his writing is truly thought gripping yet so easy to understand. He proves his theory of an inner intelligence in such an elegant and mesmeric way. I am extremely grateful to see and read the amazing beauty he brings to this world!

He speaks of the silent gap in-between the stream of consciousness, and how important it is to access this gap. This gap is full of intelligence and is accessible when we slow down the horizontal axis of thought, and sink vertically to a depth that transcends all manifestations of the mind.

Read, study and observe to strengthen your mind and contemplate the beauty of life.
