Acknowledging Ourselves as Our Own Sacred Source

I’d like to start out by saying that I absolutely love people and I adore relationships of all kinds…romantic, friendship, family, work, etc. But that doesn’t mean that it’s always easy relating to other people, am I right? I’ve come to learn, though that even the feisty, difficult, “Oh my freaking God I wanna rip my hair out” kind of relationships hold something dear to be cherished. The lessons we learn from our most trying times provided by our relationships, are what stretch and bend us, set our healthy limits and personal boundaries and no, that’s not a bad thing at all.

When we are being authentic in our personal boundaries, we treat ourselves in such a way that sets the standard for the rest of the world as well. So, there’s simply no room for “Joe Schmoe” to come prancing into your life treating you like a pail of garbage, because you simply don’t allow it into your field of existence. It’s saying something is better or worse than, it’s merely a recognition of a certain desired frequency, and they simply do not match up.

And this leads us to expectations which I’ve written about before and gotten a lot of great feedback for, so I’d like to give it another go, but with a twist. This time, let’s focus more on what we expect from OURSELVES rather than those around us.

In a previous article, What To Expect From You Everyday Expectations, I went into all of the various ways that we put our energy out across the realms of existence that we might not even be aware of. First off, you need to know that there are multiple realms and while interconnected they all “move” and “act” on their own accord; with their own style and uniqueness.

The different realms are physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and etheric and I highly suggest reading that article before continuing on, but even without knowledge of the realms, I bet you’ll find a useful tip or two in the words beyond…

Most often our relationship is bouts of giving and take and usually roles are clearly defined. But if those roles are ever challenged by one party or if something tremendous shifts, etc. then relationships as a whole can be entirely redefined or sadly even end at a whim’s notice. But alas, every relationship serves its purpose, and even those we expect to last until our dying days often fizzle and fade, and in the end, it’s really up to each individual to determine the final destination of where that relationship status lands in their heart once the usual connection is broken.

If two conscious individuals unite in a relationship, chances are much better than if and when the union ends, the departure will not be quite as dramatic as the typical relationship, because with awareness comes an understanding always of a purpose higher than ourselves and our emotional responses to any given moment in time. It also comes with the understanding of desires, motivations, the Ego, the self with a little s .vs a big S, etc., and if you’re lucky a knowing that each person is THEIR OWN SOURCE! Therefore just as the union came together in love, so can each person allow such a respectful and honest, unattached letting goes if and when the time comes to do so.

Sadly, so many relationships begin in a dazed and confused stupor of puppy love infatuation of what we want people to be. We refuse to foresee the flaws we know will eventually show themselves and temporarily convince ourselves these people are unwavering perfection, and we delight in the fact they think the same of us! Oh, what a high! 🙂 But when we instead really see people from the get-go for what they are and not what we want them to be nor what we can tell they’re trying to be, we will understand better that everyone is a mere traveler here, that everyone is still learning and growing and that while technically we all are perfect because we are of Divine Creation, we are here to experience the illusion of imperfection, so that we can expand in third-dimensional reality and live as conscious creators ourselves. So, it’s wise when falling in love to simply not fall with blinders on.

For most of us, though in the dust-storm high of new love, we start to dump our expectations on this new person to fulfill desires and wants in our lives, and if they do we stay the path, but if and when they don’t, especially if they were at first, then we twist our version of who we thought we knew and loved and withdraw, don’t we? And the games begin…

How about we try something new? How about we stop using one another as our source of happiness and realize it’s always been US?

If we teach our children to go within for strength, courage, and ultimately to love themselves enough to trust their instincts, to set healthy boundaries, etc. then perhaps we can raise the next generation to not look to MTV to see what is acceptable to wear or how they should talk. How about we instead raise independent, beautiful, kind-hearted kids that not only love themselves but love each other and bring this into adulthood? Then we will be granted a new generation that knows to go within to find their confidence; to BE their own Source. Remember, they don’t call it SELF-worth for nothing!

That sounds like a great plan right there, humanity…let’s get on it! 🙂 So. Much. Love. <3

The People Are the Power. When We Unite, We Can Stop These Crimes Against Humanity! | Lurnpa

Source: Lurnpa Lurnpa

“I’m in this for the children. I’m in this for the people. I’m in this for humanity. And, I’m in this for Mother Earth. I stand with all who seek freedom. And, I will never ever give up on the children and future generations… I ask you to stand with all of humanity to end the senseless suffering across the planet that’s been perpetrated by corporations that are nothing but war mongers. All the conflict on the planet and all of these wars are bankers wars. Everything is by design. We have been socially engineered. We have a chance to unite as humanity and stand up. And, I’m calling on YOU ALL to stand with us because at the end of the day it’s the people power. The people are the power. And when we realize that and when we unite and stand together, we can stop these crimes against humanity. We can stop the genocide. And, most importantly, we can protect the children.” ~ Lurnpa

Since videos of Lurnpa speaking at the freedom rally (see HERE and HERE) have been circulating, we have seen an overwhelming unity form amongst the human community which we have dreamed of for many years. Seeing this unity being cultivated has brought relief and a new boost of energy to continue this fight that was beginning to take a toll on many of us who have been fighting for years and intergenerational – lifetimes.

Yes we are fighting, yes we are at war but we are not just soldiers or warriors, we are human. Lurnpa decided to put this short video together of explaining why he has embarked on this pilgrimage of creating a better world for the children through reasserting our freedom and Sovereignty as human beings.

Also from Lurnpa:

“The Indigenous of Australia are rising and standing with you to protect each and every one of you against this medical tyranny and this fraudulent govt. Under UN orders the queen decolonized Australia in 1973. The govt was meant to hold a referendum to let the people decide by referendum how to be governed they did not. they created a corporation and the fake Queen of Australia. they were also supposed to renegotiate a treaty with the Indigenous. They did not. This was a big mistake for them. It means that the only law that is valid here now is Indigenous lore. The tribal elders of all councils around Australia are coming together to stand down this govt. They will offer anyone who requests it a tribal card that you are under Indigenous lore. This has been tested and it works. They will not be able to touch you or force you to do anything. If they try there are legal repercussions on them personally. Soon we will be rallying against the govt and launching this. there need to be protests around the country in support of the indigenous who are protecting you and bringing our country out of this communist takeover. A call-out will be made. This is it, people. Stay strong. Be Ready.”

Three Wisdom Practices You Can Begin Today

The Way is Easy, Mastery Requires Practice. 

First things first: mastery arises from innocence, become as a little child.

Stop. Be aware of your environment. This is the beginning of wisdom.

1. Focus on being aware that you have literally created this experience. Our thoughts are precursors to the tangible. This doesn’t mean you are to blame for something you don’t like, but have the ability to make a change. Change is an agent of creation.  
How can one embrace change? Keep this in mind, resistance is the energy of fear. When one can embrace change and let go of resistance, then opportunities and synchronicities have space to present themselves. This is childlike behavior; carefree, not careless.

What can you do to increase your innate ability to create a desired future? Do your best to stay in the present moment. How? Be deliberate! Practice bringing awareness each hour of the day. Bring this quality of awareness to what you are experiencing. Also, when the thought arises, “I need to be in the present moment”, practice it.

2. I need do nothing. On the surface, this seems to contradict the practice in step one. However, it is far from it. Need is a perception that you lack something. Lose the word need. Relax into the state of being that within you is housed your higher being that always desires for you to be the best version of a human being.
Cultivate this every morning and evening. 

Let the thought arise as you wake each morning; I need do nothing. Write it down and think about it during the day. Take some pressure off and stand in your power. Remember you are practicing to become wise, so that doesn’t mean you forgo responsibilities. You embrace your tasks from a position of strength, not need.

3. Choose something you do every day that is ordinary and seems to hold no significant power or spiritual meaning. Something as simple as brushing your teeth, drinking a glass of water, or yawning. Then use it as a focus of worship. Say to yourself as you brush your teeth or drink your water, “It is very good”.  Cultivate the innocence of your creation. It’s like building a castle in the sandbox. Enjoy the experience and then when you want to be rid of the castle, be as a child and brush it away and go about the next thing. Don’t hold on tightly to anything. Be flexible and joyous even in the what seems to be the mundane.

What is the significance of these wisdom practices? They aid you to get out of your own way by helping you to release fear, be present, and by not allowing circumstances to create a control factor. Simple practices that offer profound results. It’s only difficult when we think it to be so. You are a wise being, trust your innate nature so you can navigate these days with grace and ease. Much love to you my friends, Julia.

How Doing Nothing Can Bring You Everything

What is it about us humans that we insist on always having to be doing something? Honestly, I believe it’s just as important to teach our kids how to BE, rather than what they are expected to always be doing. And perhaps the most important thing I’ve learned along the way, that the only thing you need to ever BE to get ANYTHING done, is your authentic self.

When you are fully in the mold of who you were destined to be, life is easy. I’m not saying it’s all rainbows and unicorns, but it’s easier in the fact that it’s “simple”. It’s simply because when you literally get out of your own way, the Universe has this funny way of always having your back and is in constant communication with you through your very own Soul; or what some might call your Higher Self. I am not fond of hierarchy-sounding titles, and since it’s still “you”, I prefer to call it your “Intuition” with a capital “I”. And that is perhaps the one “I” your ego will never understand and will yet fight to the death to prevent you from listening to.

You see the ego does not want to change. It’s that voice always telling you that life is hard because if you didn’t struggle, you wouldn’t have earned anything (insert guilt-motivation here), while in the same breath growing ever resentful as to why all this hard work isn’t getting you everything you want out of life. You might even look around and compare yourself to other people who seemingly have not worked as hard as you (biased judgment no matter how you look at it and it only damages your own growth) and ask yourself, “Why not me?”

I am as guilty as the next person of always feeling like I’m not doing enough and if I happen to take a breather, I need to feel guilty about it, or work extra hard when I get back to “make up for it”. For some reason, (I know why, but that’s an entire article all in itself regarding inherited traumas which I will write about very soon!) But at the same time I have the knowing sense that it’s not even a matter of me “deserving” a break, it’s a matter of asking myself, “Does this bring me joy or not?” If not, DON’T DO IT! And I’m not talking about if you’re finding yourself flaking out on every opportunity afforded to you, or refusing to take risks that are ultimately holding you back from making progress in areas of your life.

What I’m referring to are the things we ALL do that we (usually secretly) hate to do! The things we do that are only motivated out of guilt, fear, or other people’s expectations of who they think we are and who they think we should be. I’ve come to learn when we live to meet the expectations of others, you die a very slow and painful death. Action with the energy of resentment behind it is toxic even if it has a fake smile plastered on it and especially if it doesn’t and no one else seems to mind you keep doing it anyway.

Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase that we teach others how to treat us through how we treat ourselves. I feel while there is so much truth in this as energy truly is reflective and self-fulfilling whether you have any conscious awareness of it or not, but I think that it goes beyond that. You see, no matter if we are treating ourselves poorly and allowing others to cross personal boundaries, or whether we are aware of our needs and take great care to make sure we are meeting them, people are always going to BE who they are.

Some of us are better than others at being true or “real” with others. And I honestly don’t believe that most of us do this intentionally. I think there is a huge epidemic going on in the last few generations and it’s called WE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHO WE ARE.

And who we are, while divinely grand and cosmic, is the simplest purest form of Spirit and no one (not even ourselves) can take that away from us; no matter how mean we want to be, no matter how hard we want to be on ourselves in the name of “encouragement”. When it comes down to it, we were all put here for a grand purpose that upon incarnation is usually lost to us. But as we age, the memories begin to flood in through our creativity, inspirations, and karma.

And if we listen and look closely enough, we can see the simplicity of who we really are still there for all those years. Under all of the fears instilled from our parents, under all the expectations from society, under all the negative self-images from TV, under all the masks…lies the one you were born with and it has no face, but the one you decide to create.

We are so much more than physical beings and once we remember who we are before they told us who we had to be, it becomes quite clear how there is nothing more to ever “do” to ever become yourself. It’s simply a matter of shifting your perspective and un-peeling all of the layers of your mental onion. For once under all our self-created dramas, heartaches, disappointments, expectations, resentments, judgments and assumptions lies the key to your success.

It is a key that belongs to no one and changes everyone. And like our very own hearts, once opened will expose the truth that while we insist on making our journey complex, the degree of our suffering can be reduced immensely with the simple realization that to become everything we were meant to be, there is nothing we need to do…but remember who we’ve been all along.

How To Always Make The RIGHT Decision (AMAZING) | Gregg Braden

Video Source: Inspired

Gregg Braden describes a simple method that you can use to make the right decisions…

Why do Some People Only Ask for Help After Pushing Everyone Away?

Ask for Help to Reduce Stress &gt; WithoutStress.comIf you’re anything like me, you may have a hard time asking for help when it comes to personal stuff. If I can’t reach something off a shelf, sure I’m good with requesting some assistance, but when it gets a bit deeper than that, I tend to wanna handle everything on my own; retreat inward and soak it in a little “me-time” solitude. My mental cave is always warm and welcoming with popcorn made and a Netflix marathon ready to go. But sometimes, when the popcorn’s run out and your ass is asleep from too much couch-potato-ing, you reach a point where your ego allows you to understand that your ONLY way out to reach a solution is another’s perspective.

My inner world has always been a rich, vivid place. And anytime it seems when an outer connection is initiated and I “accept” so to speak, then I immediately get connected to a source of ever-flowing, loving information that seemingly helps people most of the time. Whether it be that stranger in line at the supermarket who tells me her life story or the friend who always comes to me for advice, I have always been acutely aware of a pull or draw I have that even as a young child made me feel like I was officially stamped “HELPER” or “HEALER” on my forehead upon birth. I never thought to ever really put a name to it other than my intuition, but what has always boggled my brain is that when I myself come to me with a dilemma or need support, I don’t seem to get the same VIP access to that awesome info waterfall. I tend to more often self-sabotage, procrastinate, etc. and this as I now understand is all part of the plan…

I’m grateful for tapping into my life theme at such a young age, but it has taken me my entire lifetime to even begin to understand how to use my empathic abilities in coherence with it. I’ve always felt completely dualistic and presumably, that’s fitting since we live in such a dualistic world. However, it seems a major part of my theme is to always be acutely aware of the extremes, so that I can hang out in the neutral zone, as that is where the best mediators reside, no?

Sounds simple enough, but living in a society that tells you happiness is something you strive for through obtaining material gains, not something you create from within yourself has driven the overall vibe of humanity to lean just a tad to the negative and I think we’ve all taken notice. But if we zoom out our perspectives a bit wider, we begin to see how that extreme is simply the same as its opposite, just to a different degree. In other words, everything is connected. How to Ask for Help | Psychology Today

And I think that is the ultimate lesson we are here to learn. We are born with eyes that literally we can never look into at our own souls, and so we must rely on others, our loved ones, friends, enemies, neighbors, strangers, children, parents, etc. to mirror and reflect back to us our greatest and not so great traits for us to celebrate and share and learn and grow from (we hope LOL).

All of these factors can lead a person to feel, well a little alone in this big world. One thing they don’t teach us in school is how to love ourselves and if I’ve learned anything assisting other people with their own lives it is that while you, of course, can love and be loved without fully embracing yourself, however when you do love yourself in wholeness, it opens up a world of neutral acceptance, of presence, peace and personal allowance for people to be who they are.

And I don’t know about you, but when I feel I can be who I am and am not being judged I am so much more likely to open up to people. And I think this is perhaps another big reason that we push people away, but what we would be wise to remember is that when we are helping others, we are actually helping ourselves too. For every spirit we lift, we ultimately lift our own.

Tom Hiddleston’s Greatest Life Advice Will Change Your Future (MUST WATCH)

Source: Motivation Heaven

Coming up…
We all have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one. This is a universal experience for all creative people, certainly actors, is that the constant rejection. You have to get used to it and you have to get thick-skinned about it. You’ll never win unless you also stand to lose. Everything is possible and nothing is guaranteed. Take pains, be perfect.

Transcript (Tom Hiddleston)

I think a myth in the business is that we all have everything to choose from, as we don’t. I know, I’m not at the top of everybody’s list. You have to earn that place… I have read things and gone, wow, this is amazing. And I’ve chased it down and knocked on the door and people have said, actually it’s not you Tom. We’re thinking of someone different. And then my job is to keep knocking on the door and say, let me see if I can change your mind.

I’ve been very diligent in my training, and tried to listen to the advice of all my teachers and instructors as a student, as an academic, as a training actor. And I always wanted to do right by them. And I found myself, is a very scary moment, when you’re a young actor. Most people find themselves in the early 20s and everything is possible, and nothing is guaranteed. If you’re lucky enough, you have an agent and you start auditioning and they send you everything from period drama to casualty, dairy milk commercials.

And you are thrown into the business and thrown into it at the deep end. And there’s no time for doubt or failure – except routinely, that’s what happens to all of us. I perhaps was too careful in auditioning and I would always get close to landing roles into booking jobs, and would never quite get there. I mean, this is a universal experience for all greater people, certainly actors – is that the constant rejection at the beginning.

You have to get used to it and you have to get thick-skinned about it. I was so exhausted because at first you take it very personally. And I thought, well, no one’s going to help me get there. The only person who could do this is me. I started preparing in a different way and I sort of stepped up to the plate a better I think, because I could feel time sliding away and I wasn’t getting on with life. I just was sort of stuck in this rut of neither acting nor doing anything else.

The experience of being in your twenties is so energetic. And I felt so stagnant actually. So I just kind of changed everything up, and it worked. I’m lucky. I don’t know that I’ve ever been able to to do anything. I say it as a sort of because I’m aware that it can be a strength, but it can also be a weakness. Because the focus is obsessive. So, when I go for something, I go for it at the expense of everything else.

I love what I do, and I feel so lucky that I’m allowed to do it, and that I did get to do it for a living. And cinema and theater have had such a profound effect on me in my life. And so every time a new script or a new role comes along, I’m motivated by the thought, I won’t forgive myself if I don’t give it everything. But I do try to choose different kinds of things because I’m interested in in the diversity of people and the complexity of people and the multiplicity we contain within us.

I really think the thing that unites us all in the world is that we are constantly inconstant, and that inconstancy and that contradiction is something that I’ve always tried to explore with my characters because I think that we contradict ourselves all the time. There’s the Walt Whitman poem, The Song of Myself: “I am large. I contain multitudes. I contradict myself.”

We all have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one. So I’m not wasting any time. And the thing is, you know, with negativity, they are like clouds that pass across the Sun. They will pass, like they’re just feelings, you know. And it’s important not to dwell on them and just move past it.

There is so much, I find it (maybe it’s my nature), but there’s just so much about life that’s amazing. And when you kind of key into that, nobody has an easy ride. That’s for sure. And it’s about to get hard, I’m sure. But it also gets better. And the point about going through those experiences is you just have to sort of go: “It is what it is, and it will pass.” And you just need to tap into like how amazing stuff is. It’s pretty cool.

I think I always trust my gut. That’s all I have, even when I’m working and you’re thinking about the shape of a scene and how it should be played, and your head can often get in the way. And you got to trust your gut. It’s just, if I’m inspired, if my curiosity is piqued, and I want to chase this possibility down that I see in front of me on my desk.

Some of you may have heard me say this before, but I’m always embarrassed to say I was speak in metaphors. I don’t know how to speak in any other way. And for me acting is kind of like playing the piano. And if the piano is the human condition, we all have every single note on that 88 keyboard within us.

For me, every role, I want to be able to play every note and sometimes if a character or a story seems to stretch me in some way, seems to offer up an experience that is new – that is a different chord or a different tune, that is real and true and human and accessible – and no matter how joyous or loving or warm, or how dark or painful, if it seems like an interesting shape to inhabit, I’m running. I know if I’m running towards it already.

So I think it’s a quote from Shakespeare, which is four words: take pains, be perfect. I think it’s his way of saying, you know, don’t be afraid of caring. I gave myself permission to care because there are a lot of people in this world, who are afraid of caring or afraid of showing that they care because it’s uncool. It’s uncool to have passion. It’s so much easier to lose when you shown everyone how much you don’t care if you win or lose. It’s much harder to lose when you show that you care. But you’ll never win unless you also stand to lose.

Basically, you know, I’ve said it before, don’t be afraid of your passion. Like just give it free rein, be honest, and work hard and it’ll all turn out just fine.

When I was at drama school, drama school was really hard. They deliberately kind of overworked you and they throw everything out you. I was on a three year course in a drama school in London called Radha. And the first year you kind of work ease, sort of slightly showing your strength and the things that you’re good at. And the second year, they throw you everything you can’t do, all the things that are your weaknesses. And you’re basically to work on your weaknesses. What’s the point of working on your strengths? Your working 16-hour days, and you’re exhausted, and you’re drained, and physically tired? And I kind of lost the love of it. I lost my mojo.

I live near a couple of parks in London. I remember, one night I couldn’t sleep and it was the summer. I got up really early in the morning, and I went and walked to the nearest big hill. And I saw the sun rising. Sometimes, I think that’s the answer is just get up when the sun gets up and look around and and you realize, you’re part of an amazing planet. That’s what I do.

Nothing Can Stop THIS – It’s the Ultimate Power in the Universe | David Icke

Source: Inspired

David Icke: We need to love this world into a state of love. There is no other way of doing it. And, what is love? … It’s the ultimate power!

TRANSCRIPT (David Icke speaking):

We need to love this world into a state of love. There is no other way of doing it. And, what is love? People think love is weak. It’s NOT weak – it’s the ultimate power! It will not walk backwards in the face of anything that it believes is right.

Love is not always about lovey-dovey stuff. Love is also about putting yourself on the line, speaking your truth, standing up against oppression, standing up against all the shit that comes your way – because you believe that what you are doing is right – and serving the greater good. That’s also love, even though you might lose your temper here and there.

The reason you’re doing it is because of LOVE, BECAUSE YOU WANT THIS WORLD SO BADLY TO BE WHAT IT CAN BE!

I’lll freakin’ get there with you. I’ll get there freakin’ with you. I’m not going until this change, this transformation is over. I’ve invested too much of my life in this.

The Beauty of Non-Attachment

Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase by Buddha, “You only lose what you cling to”, but what does this really mean? Unfortunately, non-attachment or detachment is greatly misunderstood in the mainstream and is often thought to mean that one completely shuts down emotionally and refuses to care about anything outside of themselves anymore, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Image result for non-attachment quotesWhen we think of a river flowing, non-attachment is kind of like that when it comes to our emotions. Rather than letting one particular emotion dam up the waters of our soul, we simply let it run its course without becoming enthralled or entangled in its web. With negative emotions, we tend to let them take the wheel and direct our thoughts, actions, and reactions. And while we can see how asinine this is when others do it, while we ourselves are in the throes of anger, we feel completely justified because we’ve allowed the emotion to take control, overpower us and run wild. We are no longer connected to our hearts and therefore are disconnected from the targets (other people) now receiving our wrath.

With positive emotions, we tend to cling and hold onto them out of fear they will go away. We want them to stay and last forever, rather than being at peace with the fact that nothing ever does. This takes away from our ability to truly appreciate things at the moment, because we’re always away from it in the future, planning on how to keep it from getting away from us.

The true beauty of non-attachment is that it allows us to feel emotions, but from a completely different perspective than ever before. Instead of avoiding all the “negative” ones or letting them overtake us, we are diligent in keeping control and choosing our next action; we do not let the emotion decide for us. We realize we are not victims to the emotion, we are not its minion and the emotion isn’t there to rule over us anyway…but it inevitably will if we let it.

Emotions are way-showers if we know how to look at them. They show you where your triggers are, where your un-healed pain remains, and where your passions and desires lie within your heart. Unattached, emotions can help guide you into a purpose-driven life, or if we cling too hard, they can keep you stuck in an abusive relationship or career you hate. We must first be willing to look at them for what they are, then we can start to change the way we interact with our own emotions.

I’ve heard people say, “I can’t change who I am.” or “I can’t change the way I feel.” Both of these statements are the result of a child being conditioned to believe they are powerless over their own lives. Children who’ve grown into adults are now either fearful, resentful, or hateful towards a world that they’ve forever had to bend and break for time and time again, but that will not even throw them a bone. And with this perspective…it never, ever will.

That always hits home with me because I was/am one of those people. I struggle to this day with self-love, confidence, and empowerment. But what I’ve come to learn is that our emotions and feelings are not our enemies and when we can learn to use them as the tools they are, we begin to slowly regain our power, and once you get even the slightest taste of your own true authentic personal power that’s been lying dormant in your heart for so long, you almost demand of yourself to come flying out of victim-hood.

To wrap things up, non-attachment isn’t dimming your fire or passion. It isn’t denying how you feel. It is merely taking the steps necessary to discipline yourself to not stay IN one emotion because we’re not meant to. Our natural state is neutral (no coincidence they are such similar words) and to remain balanced, and practicing non-attachment allows us to live a more balanced life.

Of course, we will still have times we cry, we’ll still get angry, we’ll of course still laugh and smile, we are human and that’s what this crazy ride is all about…FEELING. That means riding the wave…allowing the emotions to rise, and then fall and dissolve away. Let us remember that love is not an emotion, but a state of being. If you feel the need to feed emotional drama, negativity, etc. then I would definitely suggest taking a look at how you handle emotions in your life. There’s nothing to feel bad, ashamed, guilty, or mad about it, this is all a process of growth and expansion into a greater understanding of ourselves.

What Are You Afraid Of? | Max Igan 2021

Max Igan: What are you so afraid of? You were born for this. This is your moment to face infinity without flinching.


I have no fear of death. You know what? I’m quite prepared to stand my ground in front of these people. You have to kill me to get me to comply.

But it’s those in fear behind that who will see that and go, Oh gee, I don’t want it to happen to me. So I’ll comply. That’s the problem: is the sleeping masses that our dragging us into it. I mean, the only option we’ve got here at the moment is to to push back by removing our support from these people, which I think would be beneficial.

What if this is just a test? What if this is just the exam before you go on to the main event? You know what I mean? I mean, why would you be so terrified of leaving this slavery system that you will do anything, you’ll become more and more, and more and more of a slave just to avoid that which is inevitable. You came here to die. That’s what you’re going to do. That’s a given, you know.

So why are you going to go out of your way to avoid that? And you will let yourself be repressed and turned into something that it’s not even you anymore out of your fear of facing that which comes after. It’s ridiculous!

No, I’m not going to go along with it. I’m not doing it. I won’t be going and jumping in your cage. Do you intend to kill me now? Because I’m not going with you. What are you gonna do? You gonna escalated to the point that you kill me? Might as well get it done now, you know, I don’t like violence but I have no problem with counter violence you know? But I’m simply not going to go with you. That’s not what I came here to do.

As I’ve been saying to people you to walk the path of the warrior, to be able to face infinity without flinching, That’s what this is about. We’ve been given the opportunity to do that now.

You know, how much are you prepared to let yourself be squashed, and your conscience just crushed, and your whole spirit dis-enabled and pushed into a box in order to avoid that which is inevitable?

Now you’re gonna live your life as a slave in order to avoid death? You can’t kill me. You might be able to kill this vessel that I inhabit for this brief temporary experience, but can’t kill me. I have no fear of that.

I’m not going to do whatever you want me to do, and going to allow you to get my soul and my consciousness and put it in a mainframe and keep it here and control it. I’m not your toy. I’m not your experiment. I’m not your little insect that you want to observe. You know, I’m Spirit, I’m everything that is and everybody that is. And that’s what everybody is.

So, this is a choice that we’ve got, you know. Do want to live your life in fear, or are you just going to stand up for yourself? Stand up and be proud of what you are and just and be willing to face infinity without flinching? That’s what it’s all about. That’s what you came here to do. You don’t go along with any of this stuff.

You know, it’s all about fear, and it’s all about control. Forget about wealth, forget about politics. Forget about all that sort of stuff. It’s just control. They want control. They want control of you. They want control of your soul. They want control of your essence. Don’t give it to them!

Powerful and Wise Living Begins Here

As we have moved into a dynamic energy with the Lion’s Gate portal on 8/8/21, what happens next? Some may say, recognize you are a powerful creator and now manifest your creation. Others may also say, hang on because another retrograde will begin soon and there will be much disruption.

So how do you live in these powerful and disruptive days? Determine to be a master, be the creator of both your daily experience and your life. If that seems daunting, then begin here: simplicity, ease, release, play, lower your expectations, laugh, let go. These are attributes of a child. Possibly you have heard, don’t be so childish. I chuckle at that thought, why?  Because that is the way to live soberly and thus restrictively in your life. Why not be as a child? Be carefree, not careless. Be playful, not so serious all the time. Be joyful in your creation and when it falls apart, go on the next thing.

The beginning of powerful and wise living is not found in control, but in undisturbable simplicity. Who exhibits this more than a child? The key to power is not strength, but meekness. Meekness can be understood by this concept: power under control. So here is the truth of the matter, be as a child with the knowing you are a powerful creator. Recognize that in doing nothing, you can do all things. This thought is a mastery position, because it contains all the axioms necessary for a peaceful and contented life. Isn’t that the ultimate goal?

Here are some wisdom words from the Tao to encourage you and help establish the development of your meekness. Be playful and at the same time seek wisdom daily, for powerful living exists here.

Find the anchor of the universe within yourself!

From the Tao, Lesson 37

The subtle essence of the universe is always unoccupied, yet it leaves nothing undone.

If the people of the world were wise enough to plant the root of their lives deep within the Subtle Origin, then the worldly affairs of life would coherently follow their own natural course, and harmony would abound of its own accord.

When confusion takes place in one’s surroundings, it can be dissolved with the power of undisturbable Simplicity.

When life is ruled by undisturbable Simplicity, desire and passion naturally fall away and reveal people’s true, original nature.

Then the peaceful order of the universe prevails and unity manifests again of its own accord.

My friends, life does not have to be so complicated or chaotic. It is your choice of how you want to experience your life. Develop wisdom practices that will provide strength during the storm and comfort in daily life. Believe me, this works! Love, Julia
