Awake and Aware
What is attention? If you’re interested in spirituality you may have heard it called consciousness or presence. If you have an interest in psychology or are more on the hard-science side of things you may have heard it called mindfulness instead. Mindfulness is a useful term if you read it as “what you are mindful (aware) of,” and not so helpful if you consider it to be concerned primarily with the mind, that is, what you are actually thinking.
Here are ten books capable of revolutionizing the way we think, speak, and live our daily lives… which as these books will often further explain gives you the power to change (and save) the world. These books have been selected for being every bit as fun to read as they are transformative.
According to Chris Hedges, “the inability to grasp the pathology of our oligarchic rulers is one of our greatest faults.” In this interview with Paul Jay of RAI, Chris discusses the pathology of the super rich; their sense of entitlement, the dehumanization of workers, and mistaken belief that their wealth will insulate them from the coming storms.
During this time of great shifting, many are being tested. The pressure to be corralled into an either vs. or situation looms large. External conditions are pressing the masses into an “eat or be eaten” mentality. In this regard, there of course has been a supersonic psychological trajectory developing for some time and yet within […]
You are not a physical being in a physical universe. You are an energetic/vibrational being in an energetic/vibrational universe. You are both a transmitter and a receiver of energy. One of your greatest challenges as a human being is learning how to live as a vibrational being in a vibrational universe.
This imposed artificial time constraint is a very subtle one, especially when you realize everything depends on perspective. We’re clearly experiencing a manipulated, illusory cycle of time with parameters that make us feel contained, limited. And that’s the intent. Closing in on your prey is an ingrained predatory behavior. If the subjects feel there’s no escape, compliant behavior will eventually follow.
In my last blog I discussed (or perhaps better phrased, ‘ranted’) about how we need to claim our sovereignty (you can read it HERE). I thought it apt to outline today 5 ways to do this. “It is the nature of the self to manifest itself, In every atom slumbers the might of the self.” — Muhammad […]
Prayer means many different things to many different people. It is something that is so pervasive in our lives that it permeates fully through our societies and cultures. All cultures and religious traditions have their own practices when it comes to prayer, but let us acknowledge the similar theme. People all over the world right now are praying, to influence their world and the universe in myriad ways.
I’m currently sitting on a plane on my way back home to Brisbane from the beautiful island of Bali and I came across the quote above. It is basically saying that everything only exists as we observe it. So, if that is the case, now that I have taken off from Bali, has this island disappeared into the abyss of nothingness waiting for the next time I visit?
There are some difficult problems facing us that threaten not only our fundamental rights as human beings but also our very survival. We can and must tackle a seemingly endless stream of issues in a struggle for truth, freedom, security and justice. But unless we can get to the underlying causes of these issues, they will not only keep repeating, but will continue in their slide to a dark abyss.
Many people go through their lives in a constant hunt for someone else’s energy. It is unconscious in many people. All they know is that when they control others they feel better. What they don’t realise is that this sense of feeling better costs the other person. It is their energy that is stolen.
For years my life was defined by deep feelings of inadequacy as well as concurrent actions of striving to keep those feelings at bay. Even as a young child, I felt nothing I did was good enough, and I can still recall feelings of intense anxiety, sometimes terror, at simply waking up and knowing I had to go to school.
Synchronicity is Your Ultimate Guide “According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that […]
This beautiful planet is crawling with those of us who want to make a difference; who know we are capable of anything. Some of us are there living it fully, some are in the midst of the dance of taking a few steps forward and a couple of steps back (hint: good old self sabotage; something I know well), and others are just beginning to wake up to the realization that this knowing has been inside of them all along, and it’s time to do something about it.
So how are you feeling? Do you feel that something is different? That something has shifted? Something that you can’t quite put your finger on… something imperceptible? Well something IS different… you have shifted. We ALL have… but not everyone can see it yet. There is now a New Earth. Yes the Old Earth, you could say the 3-D Earth, is still there…both exist in parallel. However which one you experience depends upon your perception and your state of BEing in any given moment.
