The earth is not flat. The universe does not revolve around the earth. The physical world is not the only reality. Genes do not control our biology. Evolution is not random. There are many cosmic forces at work, and all of them are intelligently directed. We are not a cosmic accident. Consciousness did not evolve. Consciousness is reality. Conscious energy creates physical reality.
The truth is within all of us. We all come from the same source. We are part of it. And therefore, we have knowledge of it. When we awaken, and we all will eventually, then we will know what we have always known. We are one.
Spiritual teachers appear when we are in need, appear when we are ready, reminding us of who we are, reminding us of what we know, pointing to our essence, pointing us towards each other, redirecting us to God, leading us to oneness, Spiritual Teachers remind us there is only one reality, Presence
Although consciousness is non-physical, it has been said that it is of the brain, and therefore in some way of the physical world. This is not the case. We can sit in meditation and observe our thoughts and emotions. Therefore, we are not our thoughts and emotions. Consciousness exists beyond the mind-body experience. Since consciousness is beyond the mind-body experience it could not have evolved. Consciousness is not of the physical realm. Consciousness is of the spiritual realm. Consciousness is what it is. Infinite.
As awareness unfolds, higher levels of consciousness emerge. As our consciousness rises, so does the energetic field around us. This field influences the people attracted to us, how people respond to us, what events are attracted to us, and what opportunities present themselves. People and events of similar energetic fields resonate with each other. Attraction also occurs when energies are complementary. Conscious energy creates our physical reality and our experience.
Beauty is more than skin deep. Beauty radiates from deep within. The innocence of a child. The love in someone’s heart. A willingness to help others. The desire to make the world a better place. Someone painfully knocked down in life, who gets up, smiles, and continues to blossom.
Before we can create change, we have to decide something needs to change. Before we can decide something needs to change, we have to accept it as it is. Before we can accept it as it is, we have to be aware of its existence. Awareness is the beginning of all creation.
Breath calms the body. Breath calms the mind. Breath brings balance, to all of mankind. Our first breath coming in. Our last breath going out. Breath regulates life, of this there is no doubt. Breathe.
Breath is the first thing we do coming into this life, breath is the last thing we do leaving this life, and breath regulates everything in between.
Bring joy into the world, because you are joy. Bring love into the world, because you are love. Bring light into the world, because you are light. Be authentic, and you express your part, as only you can, and the world becomes a better place, for all creation
Collective Consciousness. We have collectively created this reality. Old beliefs produce old results. We can collectively solve any problem, rewrite any program, create any reality. We do this by doing our individual parts and then collectively we complete the whole of humanity. This reality is collective consciousness. When we are collectively of one mind and conscious of what we are creating, then an unlimited new world opens up to us.
Enlightenment has nothing to do with clothing, ritual, self - hypnosis, imagination, or trans like states. Enlightenment requires understanding our true essence, understanding the true essence of God, understanding the true essence of the cosmos. Enlightenment is beyond all thought. Enlightenment can only be experienced. Enlightenment is transcendence.
Forgiveness does not mean we simply forget, or we are ok with what has happened. Forgiveness means we understand humans unconsciously do horrible things. Forgiveness is a choice not to be held in a pain prison of the past. Forgiveness is to choose presence. Forgiveness is to choose peace.
Health is the art of balance, balance is the art of relaxation, and relaxation is the art of meditation
Health is the art of balance. Good mental and physical health require balance. Balance of diet, exercise, sleep, and stress. Imbalance creates stress on the body and mind. Poor health and disease are states of imbalance. Relaxation restores balance. Relaxation is the ideal state for good health. Relaxation is the ideal state for healing. Meditation is the art of consciously relaxing body and mind.
Human consciousness is identified with thought and emotion. It is of the body and mind. Phenomenon of the physical world. Spiritual consciousness is beyond the body and mind, beyond thought and emotion, outside of physical reality. Spiritual consciousness is understanding and knowledge we awaken to while present. We do not think spiritual consciousness. We do not sense spiritual consciousness. We experience it. We understand and know it because we are it. When we remove the distractions. When we look past the conditioning and the mind, then we awaken to what we are. Immortal spiritual beings temporarily in the human condition. We awaken to spiritual consciousness.
If you accept the way it has always been, as the way it will always be, then so it is. If you accept the limitations set on you by others, they become your limitations. When we focus on what we don’t want, what we don’t want is what we create. Thoughts are creative energy. Do not engage any thoughts you do not want to manifest into reality. As we believe, our life will be.
In meditation, we can develop awareness. Our identity then shifts from thoughts and emotions to presence. Presence brings the dark into the light. The light is love. When we create from love, the greater good is done. We create heaven on earth. This is the future of mankind. This is spiritual evolution.
In proper meditation, we learn to watch our thoughts. We can then consciously live in this moment the way we desire. We simply choose to accept or reject any thoughts or emotions that surface. They are either part of what we want to be as a human being or not. They either support our view or not. They are either constructive or destructive. They are either for the greater good on not. As we make these determinations our reality shifts. This moment becomes the best it can be. We begin to evolve. Moment by moment we grow. Moment by moment we live.
In the quite stillness of meditation reality reveals itself. This is where the ultimate answers are found. They are found in supreme consciousness. They are within. We have knowledge of it because we are part of it. We are individualized units of it. The answers are found by waking up. Spiritual consciousness is experience and understanding of our true essence. We are pure conscious energy. God consciousness is experience and understanding of God. God is the supreme pure conscious energy. Ultimately, we are one.
In truth, true love is beyond thoughts and emotions. When we begin to spiritually awaken, we realize separation is an illusion. At the source there is God consciousness. We are individualized units of that reality we call God. We are individualized units of consciousness. We are temporarily in the human condition. But ultimately, we are one. That realization brings about a state of consciousness called love. It is understanding of the oneness of creation. We are all in this together.
Jesus said the kingdom of God is at hand. How is this possible? Because it is happening now. It is a state of consciousness, not a destination. Jesus said the kingdom of God is within us. How is this possible? Because we are it. We are one. We are God consciousness. This is why we can create. This is how heaven on earth will be created. We are the ones who will create it.
Jesus said “the kingdom of God is at hand” This is possible because it is happening now. It is a state of consciousness, not a destination. Jesus said “the kingdom of God is within us” This is possible because we are it. We are the kingdom of God. Jesus said “I am in this world, but not of this world” Jesus was referring to our spiritual essence. Although we are temporarily in the human condition, spiritual consciousness is not of the physical world. Jesus said “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the father except through me” Spiritual consciousness is the way to God consciousness, the source from which we all illuminate. Jesus said “and know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time” We are rays of consciousness illuminating from the one reality we call God. We are immortal and collectively of one mind. Jesus said “these things I do, you too shall do, and even greater” This is possible because when we spiritually awaken, we will create heaven on earth. Jesus said as he was dying on the cross “forgive them father for they know not what they do” Jesus was speaking not just from spiritual consciousness, but from God consciousness. God consciousness is understanding the true essence of God, the reality of which we are all a part. Jesus said “a new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another”
Judging someone without knowing their life experience, without knowing their pain, by their physical appearance, by their social status, from your own belief system, from other people’s gossip, is a very shallow view, and a very shallow opinion.
Karma. Karma does not necessarily determine our lives. Karma is not permanent. Karma is accountability. Karma is the consequence of free will. We create our karma, and we can change it. We create karma with our thoughts and actions. Good karma neutralizes bad karma. Enough good karma changes bad karma. A change in behavior is required to change karma. In this way we can change our karmic state.
Look at nature. A single bee cannot really do much. But you put a group of bees together and they can form a hive. A colony of bees that work in harmony. Each one doing its part. Some bees collect pollen. Some bees tend to the hive. Some bees guard the hive. Some bees tend to the nursery. Together they make a lot of honey.
Loss of supposed happiness brings illusions into the light. Attachment to something is illusion and brings suffering. Attachments are fleeting because they are of thought and emotion. Fantasies of something out there. It is impossible for happiness to exist out there. Happiness is a state of consciousness. It is within. It exists in what is, not the attachment to it. It exists in surrender to reality as it is. Happiness exists as a value in the essence of a person or thing. In the present there is no loss. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. Anything of any real value is always present.
Love is all around us. The road of love leads to heaven. Many spiritual leaders speak of this state of consciousness. This is how heaven on earth will be created. Through a conscious state called love. By protection and nurturing of all creation. It is unconditional. It does not depend on how someone or something makes us feel. It is far beyond emotion. It is of the spirit. It comes from spiritual awareness. It comes from the understanding that all creation is an expression of God. That we are a part of it. And that we are the ones who will create heaven on earth. Love is the most powerful force in the universe.
Love. Honesty leads to trust. Trust leads to commitment. Commitment leads to security. Security leads to intimacy. Intimacy leads to love. Love is an expression of God.
Many people, doctors, and scientists agree. We are our thoughts. Consciousness is a just a sophisticated function of the brain. Question? In meditation, who is the witness? Who is sitting there in the stillness? Who is aware of the mind-body? Who is quietly watching the thoughts? Who is the observer? How can we be both the observer and the observed?
Negative programming. We write the programs. And we can rewrite the programs. If we drop the negative self- talk. If we drop the negative self- beliefs. If we drop the negative world view. Then we drop the negative programs. Think about the word negative. It refers to negative energy. What we put our energy into we create more of. Focusing on the negative is like praying for what we don’t want. If we stop putting energy into what we don’t want, then we stop creating it.
Negative thoughts are the manifestation of a belief system in which we believe we are separate from each other and from God
No matter what it is called. No matter how it is imagined. Fancy labels and fantasy are based in thought. Thought is based in human consciousness. Human consciousness is not spiritual consciousness. Fantasy is not reality. We cannot wake up to who and what we truly are while remaining in the dream. There is a simple approach based in reality that works well. Awareness
One critical point related to stress vs relaxation, with regards to consciousness, is that stress takes us out of our conscious mind, and into our sub-conscious mind. A fast reactionary mode necessary for survival, but locking us into our programming, pre-programming not of this moment, but of the past, a mere shadow of life, not a living moment. By proper meditation, we shift our physical and mental state from the state of disease, to a state of healing, and collectively we do this on a planetary scale. We also shift from being governed by the sub-conscious, to a conscious state of mind. When we do this collectively, we complete the collective mind.
Our problem is not with reality. But with our reaction to it. Our thoughts are energy. Energy we use to create our experience. Therefore, our problem is with our thoughts. If we change our thoughts, then we change our experience. What we think, expands, and becomes reality.
Perception determines our reality, our life experience, our sub conscious programming, our physical and mental health. Perception may control our lives, but we control perception. Perception is interpretation by the brain. It can be of the sub conscious or conscious. While conscious, we determine our perception.
Proper meditation develops awareness, allowing us balance through consciousness. Rather than living the life of a slave to our programming, we are liberated from our thoughts and emotions. We become the watcher, the observer of our thoughts. Conscious of this moment, and aware of all that is going on. Aware of what programs are running, and in this moment able to re-write any that are negative or destructive. In this moment, we simply re-record the music track of our lives, to the music we want for our lives. It is our movie, and we are the writers, directors, and actors.
Reality cannot be experienced with the intellect, because the intellect can only think thoughts about reality
Salvation, enlightenment, transcendence, is not a destination. Nor an event in the future. The answer is within us right now. To be fully spiritually awake while in human form. To live not in, but through this body – mind. To help others do the same. This is salvation. This is Heaven on Earth
Seek happiness and you will find unhappiness. There is no path to happiness. Happiness is the path. Happiness is a state of mind. A state of surrender to and acceptance of what is. Reality experienced through presence. We cannot live in the future nor the past, but we can choose to be held prisoner. To be set free we must move into this moment. This moment is all that exists and all that will ever exist. If we choose not to be happy now, Then When?
Spiritual awareness. You don’t know what you don’t know. Until you do. And then you will never be the same again. We realize we are not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience. We are a spiritual being temporarily in the human condition. We are a human being. The human part is the mind-body. The being part is our spiritual essence. We are a spiritual being – being human. The being human is the temporary part. The mind-body will eventually expire, but the spirit is immortal.
Spiritual consciousness is difficult to understand because it is beyond thought. We cannot really understand it through the intellectual process. It is something we must experience to truly understand. We must step out of the dream and into our true essence. This is why we call it the awakening. We awaken from basic human consciousness. The ego is a necessary viewpoint to operate from in the physical world. But it is a dream like state. A state identified with the mind-body. It is not who we truly are. We awaken to actual consciousness. We awaken to spiritual consciousness.
Spiritual teachers attempt to teach that which is beyond all thoughts and words. But being in the human condition we use thoughts and words to communicate. Do not get caught up on the teacher, their thoughts or words. Focus on the lesson, the concept. To focus on the sign post, is to miss the message. The message is not the sign post, but where the sign post is pointing.
Spirituality is life through awareness of our true essence. In essence we are of the energetic realm. We are conscious energy. We illuminate from source. Like rays of sunshine illuminating from the sun, each of us are part of the whole. Collectively we make up supreme consciousness. The purpose of human life is for each of us to express our higher self. To awaken. Together we complete the whole. As we awaken, the greater good is done.
The answers we seek are not out there. They are found when we bring our attention inward. Our higher self is already within us. We were born with it. It is who we truly are. It is our essence. We just need to wake up. The question is not, what do we need to do in order to achieve enlightenment. The question is, what do we need to let go of in order for enlightenment to flow.
The Book of Revelation refers to the end times. Do not fear the end. Our souls cannot be extinguished. They are eternal. The end times refer to the end of spiritual unconsciousness. That's what the awakening is all about. The end of a nightmare called hell. The end of separation from God. We suffer from spiritual amnesia and spiritual amnesia is the cause of our suffering.
The physical world of matter is a reality. But it is a reality within a larger reality. Matter is made of energy. Everything in the universe is made of energy. We have consciousness. We are consciousness aware of itself. We are pure conscious energy. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. So, we are immortal pure conscious energy. We have existed before our human incarnation, and we will still exist after. We are immortal pure conscious energy.
The power of creation. Not believing we have the power is not the same as not having the power. We are constantly creating. The question is what are we creating. The power is in understanding the power. When we are anxious, when we are depressed, when we focus on lack, we create more lack. If instead we show gratitude, if we are thankful for the blessings in life, if we focus our energy on abundance, then abundance is what we create.
The process has already started. Science is proving more and more each day what some spiritual teachers have been teaching for thousands of years. People are starting to wake up in larger numbers. As people awaken they will influence others. With each awakening the cosmic mind gets a little brighter. As we evolve so will the cosmic forces of creation. The human race and planet earth will heal. Poverty, starvation, and war, will someday be a thing of the past. We create our own reality. We collectively create a much larger reality. The next step in mankind’s evolution will be spiritual.
The secret to reality, is stillness of body and mind. Mental clarity is like a pond. Still the pond. Let everything settle. Vision then becomes crystal clear. When we still the body. When we still the mind. When we let all thoughts and emotions settle. When we remove all distractions. Only then, we clearly see reality as it is.
The storms in life are there to help us grow, washing away the old, clearing a path for the new, teaching us strength, teaching us wisdom. The storms in life are not obstacles to life. The storms in life are life.
There are those who believe our fate is set in stone. They believe our personalities, our future, our entire life experience is something beyond our control. Basically, they believe we are helpless victims and that life happens to us. True understanding is understanding the illusion. We are not victims. No matter the date and time of our birth, no matter anything, no matter anyone, we live our own life. Whether we realize it or not, we create our own experience. We are much more than our circumstances. We are much more than our thoughts and emotions. Life does not happen to us. Life flows through us.
True friends, love you unconditionally, have no ulterior motives, want what is best for you, are honest with you. True friends don’t always tell you what you want to hear. True friends tell you what you need to hear. True friends are a blessing.
Truth, Reality, Consciousness. Always is what it is. No beginning, No end, No birth, No death. That which never changes, sets us free.
Ultimately there is no one else responsible for self. Even if we wanted them to be, even if they were willing and knew exactly how. They are not in our brains and therefore they cannot think for us. That responsibility is ours and ours alone. Once we accept responsibility for self our lives change. We are no longer victims. We take back our power. Everything always goes back to awareness, presence, being conscious and in the flow of the universe. Through awareness we take responsibility for self, create the life of our dreams, and influence the world in a positive way.
Value in the greater good. The value in someone doing something for the greater good, isn’t in the fact that they did something for the greater good. It is in the realization that of all the choices they had, they choose to do something for the greater good. They choose to be part of something bigger than themselves. Their choice is love.
We are each in essence a ray of sunshine illuminating from one sun, one source, one reality we call God
We can choose to continue with the existing reality, or we can choose to change the world we live in by learning, by evolving, by becoming conscious of our programs, and re-writing them as needed to create what we want. Simply, we cannot realize who we truly are by remaining who we have been. And so it is collectively. It is up to us to change ourselves. It is up to us to change the world.
We can't buy salvation. It is not for sale. Salvation is something we already have. Even if we are unaware. Heaven and hell both exist, but only as states of consciousness. Everything required for spiritual enlightenment is within each of us. Right here, right now. We have the ability to be spiritually awake in this moment. We simply allow our higher self to emerge.
We have evolved to this point. All is as it should be. But it is time to wake up, to gain consciousness, to learn and to adapt, to evolve, to move into a much larger reality. It is time to collectively wake up, to move out of the collective sub conscious and into collective consciousness. It is time to complete the collective mind.
We too often look to God to fix everything. God didn't create our problems. This is our doing. We have free will. And this is what we choose to do with it. We can accept responsibility for our thoughts as well as our actions. We can choose something different. We can choose love. And we can create a beautiful garden.
When we are in human consciousness, we identify with the body – mind. We believe we are one and the same. We then project everything through that point of view. From the view point of the ego. But we are not the ego. The ego is a function of the brain. A phenomenon of the body. A view point that allows us to operate in the time – space continuum. But it is a limited view point. A view point that separates us from others and God. Human consciousness exclusive of spiritual consciousness is hell. Heaven or hell is up to us. We create from where we are consciously. Spiritual consciousness is the way.
When we focus on what has happened. When we focus on what will happen. We overlook what is happening. We can only live in this moment. While regretting the past, we are depressed. While worrying about the future, we are anxious. While present, we are at peace. The present is a gift. Open it.
When we go to the market for ice cream, we get into a car. We are not the car. The car is simply a vehicle for travel. When we spiritually awake, we realize we are an immortal spiritual being temporarily in human form. The human body is our vehicle to travel about. Although we are in a human body, we are not the human body any more than we are the car.
