How does the radical shift beyond a life rooted in the habitual egoic patterns of the past–into a life propelled by the positive, conscious stance of the evolutionary self– really change things day-to-day? With access to the evolutionary self, what will you be able to do? And how will things be different?
Marcus T Anthony (PhD) is a futurist of the human mind, writer and spiritual adviser. His web site is www.mind-futures.com. The following is an extract from his new book, Champion of the Soul. As more and more people come into presence and awaken from the madness of the mind, the human race […]
Are the masses of humanity still having a love affair with the Matrix? If so, the time has come to break up! If there is one thing that the now classic movie The Matrix illustrates, it is the blatancy of a template reality. Though offered under the guise of fantasy, this depiction caused curious and […]
Many people like to imagine how they would have responded differently to an unpleasant scenario: perhaps some pithy and scathing repartee to put the aggressor in their place, or some supremely composed nonchalance in the face of adversity. But these mental re-hashings and rehearsals have several negative effects, including: further encouraging sloppy, undisciplined and counterproductive thinking; distracting us from the present, wasting our time and energy; and the internally generated fight-or-flight stress response needlessly releases more cortisol into our blood, aging us even faster and suppressing our immune systems)—even though the moment has passed.
When I talk to some people about spirituality, they commonly respond with, “Oh, but I’m not religious,” to which I respond, “Yeah, me neither.” Then they look a bit puzzled. The way I see it, every religion is some human being’s interpretation of spiritual principles, and while there’s a lot of overlap in the teachings of all religions that probably points to some spiritual truth, I find myself resisting any dogma that says that one way is “The Way” and everything else is hogwash.
Often used by Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, and other religions, Namaste is also revered within spiritual circles and meditation and yoga classes, and it’s being embraced far beyond its South Asian origins. You’ll often hear it spoken in combination with a slight bow and the Anjali Mudra – the placement of the hands together pulled close to the heart in a fashion similar to a prayer pose.
What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
If you work (or play) in the spiritual community, you’ve undoubtedly heard one word over and over again – ascension. It’s the BIG spiritual goal. Everybody wants to ascend and become enlightened. And there’s nothing wrong with that intention. It’s admirable to want to meditate, pray, do breathe exercises, or attempt to connect with the Divine in any other way. It’s also admirable to want to be as “spiritually evolved” as you can. But at the risk of sounding impudent, I’m here to say that aiming for ascension is not enough. Not any more. We now need to set our intentions on something I call “bicension.”
The rapid changes in your third-dimensional existence are accelerating at a faster rate than your biological organism might be capable of handling. The extreme stresses upon your biological nature must be dealt with if you wish to avoid the path to madness and self-destruction.
Deepak Chopra continues the discussion pointing out that the objective validity of science requires a conscious subject, consciousness. We can’t know reality directly through our senses, we can only create models or maps of reality, not reality itself.
It’s one thing to entertain a casual curiosity about a given subject, but it’s another thing entirely when you have the courage of your convictions to spend your life in full exploration of the depths of your curiosity. Dolores Cannon was one such person. In fact, she was never shy about saying, “I want to […]
