Focal Point -Focus Like A Laser Beam!

“Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.”

–Paulo Coelho The Alchemist

 

Practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. However I like to focus on progress and not perfection. How do we make progress in the art of concentration and learn to focus like a laser beam. I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from many masters the different techniques to bring the monkey mind under control. What is the monkey mind? The monkey mind is what most of us deal with on a daily basis. We find thoughts arising that have no beneficial outcome and in many cases are detrimental. Any person that is honest with themselves in taking a look at the thoughts arising will agree that many are not going to bring about enlightening creations into the world. With this in mind what are some techniques one might practice

chello-she-plays-dennis-wickerink

Breathing. Now most if not all have encountered a guru instructing the student to come into the now or the Yoga instructor directing the viewer to breathe. The reason this is cliché is because it is one of the most effective methods for learning to focus like a laser beam. A common method is to count to 5 while breathing in through the nose. Hold the breath for a count of 5 and then breath out for the same count. The beneficial results of learning how to do this are so numerous I don’t know where to begin – so I won’t – give it a try or not. I believe with practice you will enjoy some great benefits.

Tis better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles on the field. No one can take it from you, not angels nor demons, not heaven or hell.     -Da Buddha

 

If you happen to give this a try, notice how the mind wanders. I need to do the laundry. I think I have to pee. I have to remember to put the garbage out. I cannot believe that car alarm is still going off. I wonder if I left the dog in the dryer. You will see how difficult it is to direct your mind only to breathing.  We need to think about what we are thinking about, and if it’s not beneficial than we should learn how to redirect our mind. Existential detectives and redirectors. If we are not in control of our thoughts then this is a serious problem. Stress, envy, jealousy, health problems and depression stem from the inability to focus on what brings peace, love and joy. Thought alone is the source of all sadness, depression and also happiness and peace. This is heaven or hell- you get to decide. The world is completly neutral.

The quality of your life is truly derived from the thoughts you think, change your thoughts, change your life. And so changing your thoughts- just like rebooting a computer is a concious decison that requires one to focus like a laser beam. Who is the instrument, the music and whom is playing it?  

To reiterate, consider taking 15 minutes first thing in the morning and the last thing at night to focus on your breathing. This helps train the mind. A undisciplined mind can accomplish nothing. A disciplined mind can accomplish anything.

Fall Into the Path of Radical Relaxation

Fall into the path of radical relaxation and have a near-life experience.

“The miracle does nothing. All it does is to undo. And thus it cancels out the interference to what has been done.”       -ACIM

fractal-2_hdOur idea of doing nothing is doing something. Give the Universe what it asks, that you may learn how little is your part, and how great is It’s. It is this that makes the holy instant so easy and so natural. You make it difficult, because you insist there must be more that you need do. You find it difficult to accept the idea that you need give so little, to receive so much. And it is very hard for you to realize it is not personally insulting that your contribution and that of the Universal field are so extremely disproportionate. You are still convinced that your understanding is a powerful contribution to the truth, and makes it what it is. Yet we have emphasized that you need understand nothing. Miracles are for undoing the illusion not for reinforcing it, making it more comfortable or pleasurable.

Give up what you can’t keep for something you can’t lose.    -Big Al

The bottom line is this: what we have attempted to ADD to The Multi-verse has diminished our experience of it. This is why the whole process of salvation is a process of subtraction, of UN-doing, and the only thing which must be undone is the belief in need.

What we must see is that most, if not all, of our self-directed, self-motivated activity is but an avoidance, something unconsciously designed to keep us so preoccupied that there is not sufficient psychological space for observation and truth to arise.

This world I call Distractionville, the Buddhist call the monkey mind. Sometimes I think my brain has a mind of its own.

More and more, people seem to try to fill every possible moment of their lives with some sort of activity. Rest, quiet is approached as something to be avoided until one is completely exhausted, once again allowing no space for contemplation and truth. It is even criticized and condemned as lazy or unproductive.the_mushroom__s_tale_by_kir_tat-d2906mf

An example of that would be to set up goals for the future. What activities we need to do to reach that goal. Then we fill our days with those activities until one day we can’t remember why we are doing it, or we reach the goal and realize it was not worth the effort. A person may as well try to paint a Giraffe while it’s on fire. The happiness that we thought our goals and doing would bring why not just go straight for that TODAY – NOW. Skip all the rest and decide to be that – Today. For happiness is a state of mind and is not circumstance dependent. A state of mind in which no problems exist, nothing needs to be done and nothing is left undone. Here we arrive again at the fact that we cannot control everything in the world but we have complete control as to our thoughts and judgements about what happens.

R.I.P. Now!

There is no effort, and you will be led as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path in summer. Only your own volition seems to make deciding hard. The Universal Field will not delay in answering your every question what to do. He knows. And He will tell you, and then do it for you. You who are tired will find this is more restful than sleep. For you can bring your guilt into sleeping, but not into this.    -ACIM

The Pareto Principle and Healing the Mind

What is the ‘Pareto Principle’
The Pareto principle is a principle, named after economist Vilfredo Pareto, that specifies an unequal relationship between inputs and outputs. The principle states that 20% of the invested input is responsible for 80% of the results obtained. Put another way, 80% of consequences stem from 20% of the causes; this is also referred to as the “Pareto rule” or the “80/20 rule. This principle serves as a general reminder that the relationship between inputs and outputs is not balanced.

Pareto first noticed this while cultivating a vegetable garden. Twenty percent of his bean plants provided for eighty percent of the harvest of beans. Ergo twenty percent of his cultivating efforts accounted for eighty percent of the yield. Our focus today will be about how this relates to healing the mind. I can hear you ask, “whats wrong with my mind, does it need healing”. I would say that only you can answer that. Ask yourself if you are completely happy and at peace all of the time. And yes, it is possible to be! The only question is do you want to be, for many people mumble these words to themselves but few say them loud and mean them.

What is healing the mind. Healing the mind consist of removing the blocks to ones realization of complete peace and joy. In this view one is simply returned to his natural state, for it is completely unnatural to be in any other state. One may have learned to be comfortable with his unnatural state but this is just a substitute. So, you want Peace, you do not have it now, how does one remove all of the veils of confusion and distortion in order to realize it.

The chains of bad habits of thinking are to light to feel until they appear to be too heavy to be broken.

We are working with out thought system now. For it is our thoughts alone that create our world. To attempt to present this idea I will use a thought from Willie Shake-a-spear. He wrote “There is neither right or wrong only thinking makes it so”. I would like to expand that idea in this way. Picture a beautiful mountain full of fall colors in the trees. Now picture a mountain of garbage. These two pictures are the same only our thinking separates them.

How is this idea relate to healing the mind? Once one comes to see that all of the images are the same, he may look at the possibility of turning inward to purify his thoughts. When I say purify I mean to throw out all of the ones that do not bring peace. Discard all thoughts of grievances with others or oneself. Ultimately stop all judgement of situations and circumstances. Make no decisions and have no opinions. Full stop! I call it a return to zero everything.

Seek not to change the world but seek to change your mind about the world and all of the world changes with it.

This is done within the mind and not in the world. Sure we will have to decide on clothes to wear and what to eat if we choose to. Having no opinion just means to stop and listen to the mind. Where does this opinion, this mental stance come from, who taught it to me and why is it meaningful for me to hold onto it.

How does the Pareto principle relate to these thoughts. Most of us spend ninety-nine percent of our time chasing things out in the world that we believe will make us happy. If one really cares to look at it – it doesn’t work. Happiness is a state of mind and is not circumstance dependent. It does not depend on what is going on in the world but arises from within a corrected thought system. Am I saying that everyone should spend twenty percent of their efforts on cultivating his thought system and eighty percent on whatever else takes up the time of life? I’m saying that the yield of that twenty percent focus will give back eighty percent of the Peace, Happiness and Joy that we seek.

Tired of Being You?

What would be the point of evolution, but to evolve! The greatest ability that you possess, is the ability to change your mind. How would you respond if I were to say that you could swap your silly little mind for the mind of God?

Most if not all have become familiar with the fact that an atom is 99.99999 percent energy and .00001 percent physical substance. The we can extrapolate from that fact the we ourselves are more nothing than something. Why is it that we focus all of our attention on that tiny percentage of the physical world. We define ourselves through perception- what we can see, feel, touch, taste and hear. These are our biggest limitations, to identify ourselves with the false mind made self. Let’s look at blowing off the chains that bind us, the chains that keep us limited to the sensory field.

Beyond all concepts of right and wrong there is a field. I will meet you there.  – Rumi

What creates your reality? 

Two men, after being stranded in the desert, walk into a town. One is hungry and so all he sees are the restaurants. The other man is horny, all he sees are the pretty girls.

If a pickpocket meets a saint, all he sees are his pockets.

Therefore, first our desire and then thoughts create our reality. We each hardware our brain to continually create more of the same and familiar of what we perceive as valuable. This is all fine and dandy but practically speaking, how does one change his thoughts? How can you rewrite the software of your mind permanently and get a different result.

Repetition is the Mother of all learning

If nothing changes, nothing changes. If we always do what we’ve always done, we always get what we’ve always got. We think the same 60,00 thoughts everyday, over and over. And they have now become a grove in a broken record.

How can you teach someone to value what he has thrown away. He threw it away because he did not value it. You can only hope to show him how miserable he is without it. To show him how to return to “correct” thinking by reward.  If our belief/desire thoughts (what we think is valuable) create our reality, then it is with our desire thoughts alone that we must work.screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-5-11-37-pm

Try to learn to play the Piano at 40, or learn a new language. It might be necessarily uncomfortable at first. Why? Because it’s out of the ordinary order, that means out of our conditioned thinking. We do this over and over until it becomes habit and we then break through.

1. Drop the personal opinion. If you have one-lose it, forget it. It’s all based on the past and will not be apart of the new perception you will come to know. This is another way of saying “do not judge”. Your judgement is based on false learning and is the past.

2. Meditation. The act of of silencing the mind and shutting off sensory perception. Take a few minutes several times a day to enjoy this. Through meditation we will rewire the neural pathways of our mind.

3. Nothing that you think, see or hear means anything. Why? Because YOU have given everything all the meaning that it has for you. The thoughts you think don’t mean anything. They are neither good nor bad, they are meaningless.

To swap you mind for the mind of God, first you must erase everything that you have taught yourself. At this point the Universe will rush in and write it’s own meaning!

Nirvana or Haites

This world is both Heaven and Hell and neither and everything in between.

Why? How can it be both?

Listen closely.

 Nothing you see means anything! 

How is this so?

Everything is neutral. Body’s, oceans, Mountians – everything. The only meaning anything has is what you give it. Because you have given everything you see all the meaning that it has for you, you can withdraw it also.

Do Not seek to change the world, but change your thoughts about the world, and all the world changes with it!

Walking In The Air

Check out other post here

So you want peace but do not believe you have it. It is not felt or experienced constantly or at all. What is keeping it from you but you. Seek we must for this is why all of the separated ones came. The “me” is constantly seeking, but who determines what it is you seek. The world cannot dictate what it is you seek. The seeker is the sought that cannot be seen. What is seeing cannot be seen, what is hearing cannot be heard. What you seek is is before the seeking. It is before the separation. imagesWhat is the separation? It is that moment when a bubble was squeezed out of oneness and the “me” was fabricated. The subject/object split was born, the world of duality, of opposing forces.

Ok, so enough about that. No matter how many times one slices a quarter it will still have two sides. How is the quarter melted back into nothing. How if one decided to could he bring about his own collapse. I wonder back in George Washington’s day if asked to identify himself he pulled out a quarter? How do you identify yourself? Every decision you make will stem from what you think you are. Think that you are a body doomed to eventual destruction and an ego led life will follow. There are plenty of witnesses to this trend, just look around. It seems that we only ask “what can I dangle on my body to attract other bodies, what object can I get to make the body comfortable, what skill can I learn to ensure its safety and future security. What sense can I enjoy before my “time” comes, I must hurry before it’s to late. The identification with a body brings all sorts of issues along with it. Sickness is feared, not getting what it wants, getting what it wants, the idea of possession brings with it the possibility of loss. If it can get then it can lose.IMG_0686

Another Perspective

How could time come to circumvent eternity? This is a nice pretty little sentimental statement, but does it mean anything to you. Do you believe it? Lets just fake it till you make it. If you actually did believe this without a doubt what would life look like. There is no hurry to do anything any longer. In fact, there is nothing to do or that can be done. Think about it, “eternity” no beginning and no end – no time. You just popped into this bubble for a little while to travel on at some point. Oh, I know, this is madness to the “me”. Those who have an investment cannot be a reliable witness to life and the “me” is heavily invested in it’s over learning of a insane world. It takes “me” very seriously, it thinks the “me” can change the ever present One Life to fit it’s goals. The One Life hides in plain sight from the seeker because of it’s seeking. the act of seeking IS what hides it.images

The collapse of the seeker may become possible when it is seen that there never was anything to seek or a seeker to do it. The dualistic quarter melts back into the nothing from which it came. This is death before death. To die before you die and realize there was no death, nothing to fear, nothing to gain, nothing to do but realize this. Once realized, suddenly you can go anywhere and do anything.

Walking in the air,
Floating in the sky…
Floating in the air…
We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly
We’re holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you
Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams
Children gaze open mouthed taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes
We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy mountains floating by
Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Rising up a mighty monster from its sleep
We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

The Little Schism of Evol Notion

The Little Schism of Evol Notion –  by Alex Williams
A Thought left it’s source in ancient past so long ago that the light it traveled in began it’s journey before the earth was formed. “I must hide before I am discovered for surely I have done a dastardly deed in leaving”, echoed off of nothing. Rocketing through the atmosphere piercing the membrane veil of the placenta and into darkness. A journey into darkness and fear, a detour for sure. What this thought hoped to find it brought with him here into this dimension. His name was Evol Notion.

Thus time was born. From the curiosity of what it might be to be alone and separate, a little privacy please. I need some space between cause and effect. I can create my own Nirvana and I Will. Better than the one before with my own rules and laws. Evol was a rebel of the first degree, not known before. My own Universe of my own making and I shall be it’s ruler and it shall do my bidding. It all awaited my vision of what could be in my private, alone and separate bubble of a realm.

First order of business would be to create my laws. For each and every thing there would be an opposite and all shades in-between. Multiplicity and fractionalization would rule. Four dimensions it would be, the here, the there, the in-between and time. Divide and conquer, attack and defend, love and hate, pleasure and pain and even life and death. I would people my realm with subjects able to build a concept of themselves out of thin air. This world would be built on the idea of a individual personality with a private mind. A sort of software package that each could lay upon a ever changing and shifting manifestation of matter.

Layers, I need to create layers, they are a good place to hide. Spirals and labyrinths will cover my tracks. I’ll call this the spiral galaxy and hide within a sort of fibonacci sequence. I would create mountains and boundary’s of time. Certainly I cannot be discovered in a maze of ignorance. Like the veil of the atmosphere this will be a bubble never to be completely seen in or out of.

Millenia after millennia past by and I could see that my creation was good. The kingdom of my mind was in full swing. Eons came and went, the tribes grew in knowledge and invention, roamed the surface of their making like little ants, I the ant-thropologist. But time wounds all heals and as it passed increasing viciousness dominated the plains, battles over territory and the imagined mind created objects were fought over. A breed of dominant peoples began to spread on the land like a cancer, destroying everything in it’s path. The fate of my hiding place was in question and I was growing bored with watching this vulgarity playing out. I began to long for my homeland and thus my planning of departure was necessarily undertaken. Should and could I return for certainly they were infuriated with me leaving. All of this I considered and determined to go and find the wormhole home.

I discovered that one believes he is part of his surroundings and so it was for me at this late date. I had made a sort of prison for myself, chained to the things I had created for I believed that they had value. This body I seemed to be stuffed down into was limited. My hope of creating my own Universe was turning to bitter ashes of despair. Slowly, I came to see that this world of my own creation held nothing that I wanted after all. My joy could not be found in the manifestation of matter nor in my design of individual-ness. It was just my imagination running away with me. I was looking for love in all the wrong places.

My mind turned to the escape from my chains and prison cell. The light beams that I had traveled in seemed only to go in one direction since my invention of time. The plans that I had designed to build my labyrinth when I arrived were misplaced and forgotten. Through all of this mishap I heard the distant melody of a voice of my history begin to beckon my return, which further promulgated my frantic search for the re-cognition of the way. Pieces and fragments of this jigsaw puzzle would rush by in a daze when I was not expecting them. Like a mad scientist I worked in my laboratory scribbling, pouring and planning my escape. Black holes, worm holes, nebulas and quasars, the fabric of this time must be bent. It seems that I would need a rocket with many fuel cells to break these chains and blow out the sides of the prison wall. If I had created this construct surely I could create ONE that pierced this veil of nothingness of my making.

One morning I awoke distraught for I realized that the struggle was of no use. The fire that I had started knew not of the spark that created it. I simply gave up. Looking out on the world I had created, things seemed to have evolved to a brighter wavelength on my channel. Some of the layers of the veil must have peeled off in the storm of the frantic searching in the lab. In my acceptance of the impossibility of leaving this plane I decided to take my own curriculum, the course I had set up for the inhabitants. Duality is a mother contrasted with my homeland of single Peace.

It turned out that the villagers were not exactly understanding the curriculum I had set up and a teacher was born. To have peace, teach peace to learn it, I pontificated to any that would listen. Questions such as, If you could go back what would you do differently or where do you see yourself in five years, they continually asked of me. It seemed the rules I had set up were blinding the peoples. Too many sense perceptions, too much thought, were actually blinding them, I decided. There is nothing so blinding as perception. Since they were my own creations I knew they were capable of seeing as I could, not with the body’s eyes but with the minds.

The peoples had this idea of peace sentimentally but would much rather battle over just about anything. Separate, divide and conquer was a war without end and I was doomed to watch it all for many eons. This world of duality, equal and opposite, has serious drawbacks, I thought. The idea that peace was the final goal was humorous as well, for peace was only the beginning, I lectured them.

I arrived at the conclusion that I could not leave until all of us could leave and all could not leave until we became One. To have, give all to all. This was funny to me for we were all always one. However, the realization would have to be born in the minds of the people. The dawning on the minds was my departure date.

If everybody’s wrong then no-one is right. And that certainly seemed like the case in my world. Since my world was made of ideas or mental constructs then we needed to build a construct such as a ladder to climb out of this double helix, each needed to go to the place of the skull and undergo his own crucifixion, dark night of the soul and resurrection, be dead and buried, light up all of His chakras, undergo a kundalini awakening and so forth and so on. It dawned on me that when this had taken place there would be no reason to leave and nowhere to go. A little heaven right here on earth.

If you are at a parade and get bored, you can fast forward it by walking in the opposite direction. I needed to speed up this parade. Full reverse I ordered, we must go in reverse, for this world is inside out and backward. My days began to be filled with the notion of how I was to lead the peoples up to this reverse wormhole and get them to jump in. To the Who-mans comfort was the guiding rule, lets all make our body’s comfortable until they get old, get sick and get die. If it wasn’t fighting over a scrap or arguing about who was going to do the dishes, it was “one day, this will all pay off”. And there was plenty of decoration going on. Let me see if I can attract another body with these shiny things I wear, but first, color my hair, enlarge my breast, buy a suit or high heels and bon-do my face. A sickened wall of flesh does need a lot of lipstick.

Within the construct of this popular topic of free will lay hidden the boundary’s. I mean I set it up so they would run from pain and toward pleasure, how free is that. They were only allowed this little slice of a corridor to roam in. Freedom is just another word for nothing left but booze. Therein lay my answer.

Suffering, there was no other way. The thing feared most would drive them to the wormhole. Wait, that was only part of it. Pleasure that was it, look over here, I would direct them. Look into this magnificent pool of crystal clear water, yes, look at your own beautiful reflection, thats right, lean over…… I just had to build that pool with a little downslope so they could fall gently over.

One day all of the babies prevented by the pill showed up. They were mad! I asked them this question; if you were traveling in a car at the speed of light and you turned on the headlights would anything happen. They gathered around in a huddle to discuss it then retorted, “only if it was on Labor Day”. Now these kids would not be in need of the wormhole mentioned. The understanding that the Cosmos IS in the mind was obvious, for babies always seek to join with what they see rather than keeping it apart from them. This is the difference between vision and sight. The idea of sight typically thought of as photons hitting the retina is reversed, vision goes out and envelopes everything.

What was all this about? Was I to free my peoples? If I was to free them then I would have to pre-suppose that they were -not free. This was my own rule of opposites. In truth they were not imprisoned but by their own choosing. Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes, the light has always been in them. Oz never did give nothin to the Tin Man, that he didn’t already have. No one need look for Loveville if thats the city he walks in. The only way one knows that he has something, is to give it away. Yes, the only thing we can keep in this life is what we give away. But no one was giving anything for free.

The question “What was all of this about” was the issue. The wormhole must lie not in more answers but less questions. No one but looks for the meaning of life but the experience of being alive. Everyone wants to change the world but no one thinks of changing himself. Seek not to change the world but to change my mind about the world and all of the world changes with it. It was never about leaving this place for where would I go. It was never about looking for the perfect conditions elsewhere but transforming the existing conditions into the destination. If life is a journey then this must be the destination. Build a vehicle called “Evol” and ride in that for a while. Is that short for evolution or love spelled backward. Could be one in the same.

Reverse Freudian Slip with a Half Wit

I meant half twist…….

Did Jesus suffer on the cross? No no..remember, he looked down and said “Peter come up here”. Peter said “how?”. Jesus said “get a ladder”.  Peter timidly climbed up most of the way. Jesus said “come on all the way” then he nodded to off in the distance and said “look, I can see your a mouse from up here. I mean I can see your house from up here”.

images

Yes, I Am….a halfwit. I mean as long as we’re playing these personality parts we all are. If the point of evolution is to evolve…. to whole wit, then let’s be about it. Or not… Let’s just have fun!

When on your way to meet people I invite you to meet them first in your mind. In this semi- imaginary meeting wish them success, Love and Joy. Speak to them all well wishing thoughts and send a little laser beam of peace from your mind to theirs. Careful now with the laser, don’t want to blind them (Saul). Then do a little jig right in front of them. Anything goes in the theatre of the mind. While your at it use that laser to look into the wallet or purse, see what they have hidden in there.

I find that this technique helps prevent any outburst toward these people one is about to converse with. Such as “freakin bore” or “do you ever stink about anyone but your miserable self”. How much longer will you and I have to endure the mass of hateful humans just wallering in puddles of their own selfish piss.

I stated all of that to come to this. This world, this place is a case of mistaken identity. At the very least one might ask “is there another way of looking at the world”. There are an infinite number of ways of looking at the world. Here comes one now.

 Everyone that came here did so to experience autonomous individuality personally. One might point to the idea of an Avatar. This is all fine. That is until the game gets boring and dull -or sharp and painfull. If it’s neither one for you then shoo, go have fun.

So what about it? There are techniques available that do not include: addiction to a substance, addiction to another avatar, money, food, substance, gambling or sex. Which all will eventually further the pain. Well maybe not sex.

What are one of these techniques? Everything that you see is completely in your mind. In fact, you could not possibly see it if it was not. Therefore see everything that appears to be outside of you as completely perfect. Yes, starvation murder, as well as sunsets. Remember this entire thing is a simulation and you are the avatar. We just have to come to the realization of this. By seeing everything as perfectly orchestrated one can come to see himself the same. As within, so without!  Takes practice.

Second idea outlined at the top of this article is one of attack. Where I mentioned meeting people. If we look at what happens when this occurs well See that it’s merely a meeting of false faces. This is the avatar I’m playing in this Sim and what part are you playing. So what about it? Instead of saying “oh, what a bore you are” remind your false self as well as the person in front of you of what a fantastic play this all is. The Omniverse wills all earthlings peace. If you are against another then you are against the All and Always. The idea that we have all popped into this timeframe together in the here and now. It’s a true miracle -when realized.

What was your face before you were born? Look at everything from the source and before the avatar that you are. Don’t just play the part in thinking that’s all you are. It’s really just a movie and you are the screen AND the projector.

 If one wants to be organic about it we can look at it this way. The double helix of the DNA in ones body emits a electrical signal. This signal is projecting all of this before him. We have peopled the entire world with the movie of the past. Within the DNA is all that we call ” intelligence” in this world, which has nothing to do with true knowledge. It’s merely a carry forward of past learning projected in the memory of our genetic code. In effect were merely reliving an ancient past over and over.

To undo all of the concepts we have about the world and the way things should be. Let each thought come to your awareness and then look at it. Why do I believe this. Of what purpose does it serve.

I was watching a mother and a child interact recently. The child wanted to get out of the car and play in a field. The mother did not want this to occur for the reason that the child did not have his coat. The child said “but mom, I just want to be happy, I don’t want to be sad”.  

That’s IT. That should be our last thought ” I just want to be happy”. If man all of the sudden found himself in the Garden of Eden he would fowl it up by the end of the day. However if he corrected his thinking he would find himself there. Desire – that’s a problem or TAP.

Look for the concepts that do not serve happiness and let them go. Struggle is completely overrated!

Oh, I meant to ask you; what has been the peak experience of your life. Have you ever felt like the world couldn’t touch you. So high that nothing could disturb you in that moment. Relive that moment over and over in the now.

Perfect Place-Perfect Time or PPPT

 

We often meet our destiny on the road we took to avoid it. Ones travel through time and space is not at random. Therefore, we must accept whatever comes to us as it is woven with a golden thread into the fabric of our destiny. We are always in the perfect place at the perfect time or PPPT.

The Unified Field is thoroughly known to all intend to know it. All of the Myth’s, parables, metaphors and allegory’s are true. We merely need to follow the paths of those who have come before us. The path is our own but will seem familiar. Somewhere in our genetic code of the double helix it is imbedded and echoes the memory of home.IMG_0369 If one wants to know the experience of the ancient paths he must go beyond the temples, churches and ashrams, beyond the writings, doctrine, dogma and theosophy. He must go to the movies. Yep! All the Dragon slaying, Princess rescuing, Knights of the round table, seeking The Holy Grail, Harry Potter, Wizard of Oz, Lion King, The Hobbit, Thor, Hercules, Star Wars, The Matrix. Its all there. However we must go beyond the movies to the experience. The images of an historical Jesus going into the desert for forty days and forty nights then being tempted by the devil. Buddha becomes an ascetic, consults the wisdom teachers then sits under the Bodie tree to be tested by lust, fear and social duty. Mohammad goes and sits in a cave and meditates until he hears a voice that dictates the Koran to him. Lord Krishna and Vishnu ride into battle blowing their Conk horns to complete their part in the grand play. Moses leads the Israelites out of bondage, goes to the top of the mountain and receives the ten commandments from a burning bush. Now it is YOUR turn. These historical figures or any other are of little value here and now other than to show us the way. You and I are the Buddha, the embodiment of the Christ consciousness in this lifetime. If one believes this, only one question remains. How do we come to know that, what is the mechanism that will transform the ordinary experience of a body/ego on earth into the butterfly of the eternity? What is your Heroes journey?

What thing out in the world terrifies you. What have you been given to overcome? What cause would you sacrifice yourself for. The overcoming of the ego is the central element in all the stories of the world in which a hero, the Christ consciousness or the Buddha nature emerges.

It is better to conquer oneself than to win a thousand battles on the field. No one can take it from you, not Heaven or Hell, Angels nor Demons.    -Buddha

After You Conquer Yourself (later today)

One wants to know the end, then I say know the beginning for the two are one. When the two become one the entire body shall be filled with light.The circular nature of the human mind is akin to a ferris wheel, the alpha and the Omega, the ring on our finger, all symbolizing no beginning and no end. The mind cannot grasp eternity however it can remember the present.

Now is the closest approximation to eternity that his world offers. -ACIM

Once a figure walked down a road in the center of a field. Men worked the field on both sides. The figure walked slowly down the middle of the dirt road in no hurry. He wore a tall hat. This hat was painted right down the middle. The men working on one side of the field saw a tall blue hat. The men on the other a red hat. Once the figure had walked through the field he quickly turned his hat around and walked back through the field once more. The men on both sides saw the same colored hat as before. Later during lunchtime someone mentioned the man with the blue hat walking down the road. Another man replied “you are a fool the hat was red”. The two men began to squabble violently over the color of the hat. The argument went on for years and years. Families and even villages took sides to defend the color of the hat.IMG_1783-0

This is the human condition. Attack and defend. Pick up your sword and your shield and lets fight over something, anything, pick something. Duality is the two sided hat, the paradox of this world. The infinite field of the divine appears in many shapes, paths, colors and hats. Not recognizing this is the war of the world. Every teaching, every person has a gift for one who cares to have eyes to see. Looking for the differences one will always find them. Knock and the door will be opened to the difference or the bliss. Seek and one will find because he is actually creating the finding. The man being whipped is the man doing the whipping.

The memory of the divine comes to the quiet mind

Lay down your sword and shield. You and I have fought many battles together. We have each played the victor and the victim. He who does not defend himself cannot be attacked. Lao Tzu  of the Tao Te Ching rides off on his Bull into the sunset of the countryside with no sword or shield. He has tamed the Bull within himself. imagesHe has no use of the sword and shield any longer. The Buddha sits under the Bodie tree until the truth comes to him. The Christ facing his crucifixion is asked if it is true that he is the Son of God. He simply states “it is as you say it is”. The truth does not battle with illusions, how would the truth battle a shadow, a phantom.

Once while walking in the forest I entered a spiders cobweb unexpectedly. I was swatting the air, pulling it out of my mouth, brushing off the imaginary spider. I did not know someone was watching me. He must have thought I was insane, fighting with the air. STOP! Surrender to the All and the Always. Doing battle with the illusion makes it real to the defender and attacker. The always knows it’s way to you. Any attempt to direct your own way is not the way. Be like the water, it flows with gentle ease. Attempt to grasp it and it quickly shoots out of your hand. Put your hand in the stream and let it flow through. Do not attempt to squabble over the color of the hat.

This Cosmos is not ultimate reality. If it is not then it is of no value. Now why would I say something like that. Nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exist. The transient and fleeting are not real because they have a beginning and a end. As long as we are tied to the things of this world we are tied to this dimension. Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world, Jesus states. Then he sang “Can’t Touch this”  but it did not get recorded until much later by MC Hammer (short for My Christ Hammer). If one needs nothing of this world then how can it touch him. However Love and Forgiveness fall like raindrops from Heaven on a dry and dusty world where thirsty and starving features come to be caged in a prison of their own making. Look up, the door is unlocked but one does not plan his escape until he realizes his cell. IMG_0352

I cannot tell you anything you do not want to hear, nor can I tell you anything you do not already know. My lovely dear child of the divine I but teach myself. To have peace teach peace to learn it. We have all taught the whole Universe what we are but now let what we are teach us.
