We Are Not Separate from Our Environment

One of the greatest hindrances to us living in harmony with our environment is that we have been convinced by society that we are a separate aspect of our environment. Because of thoughts, symbols, and concepts we think that our environment does things to us and we can either choose to be a victim or […]

We Are Not Separate from Our Environment

Alan Watts: Self

The video above presents the idea of the self, who you really are at a fundamental level, being one with the cosmos (everything there is), as well our self being identified with humanity itself. There is also the fundamental idea, which differs from our experience in everyday life, that we are something which has come […]

Enlightenment or Awakening.

Ego has a way of tripping us up and telling us that it’s not necessary to go through any ‘steps’ to reach our fullest potential, *our truest Self.* Ego wants us to believe that we can ‘go it alone’ and everything will turn out peachy. No man is an island, so the saying goes and yes, *we need to bounce ideas and truths off one another ~* preferably off those on a similar spiritual path. *We also need to realize that the PILOT in our lives isn’t ‘me’ or ‘I’ or ‘myself’ but ‘us’ and ‘we’.* We are co-pilots of our Life with our *Higher Power* ~ and our *Higher Power is NOT and cannot be EGO!* *So, what is this ‘shedding EGO’ step all about?* Well, it’s first realizing that my *Self is simply spirit.* Not only is Self simply spirit. The *Self is a perfect being.* We must learn to shift our thoughts from *‘doing’ to ‘being’.* I like to use the phrase ‘go with the flow’ because it’s pretty much spot on when it comes to *releasing EGO and simply accepting the Present moment as it presents itself.* Everything that happens in my Life is as it is. If I label it with words like ‘good’ ‘bad’ ‘positive’ and ‘negative’, I am judging the moments as they arise. *If I simply allow every moment to ‘be’ I am going with the flow and the rhythm of Life.* It sounds so simple, but to put this concept into action *takes much practice and constant Presence (awareness).* *Working on it daily* and oftentimes being tripped up either by being triggered by someone or something someone says, *or simply because We’re human.*

See it in your mind.Work it in your reality.

See it in your mind.Work it in your reality.

Dying To Live 🔺

Perhaps the deepest reason why we are afraid of death is because we do not know who we are. We believe in a personal, unique, and separate identity — but if we dare to examine it, we find that this identity depends entirely on an endless collection of things to prop it up: our name, our “biography,” our partners, family, home, job, friends, credit cards… It is on their fragile and transient support that we rely for our security. So when they are all taken away, will we have any idea of who we really are? Without our familiar props, we are faced with just ourselves, a person we do not know, an unnerving stranger with whom we have been living all the time but we never really wanted to meet. Isn’t that why we have tried to fill every moment of time with noise and activity, however boring or trivial, to ensure that we are never left in silence with this stranger on our own? Sogyal Rinpoche The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

“Everything alive forms a great brotherhood.

Bear in mind that everything that exists in the world is necessary, otherwise it would not have been created. All beings, from infusoria to the stars, are your life’s companions and your blood relatives. You are closely connected to all of them in the spirit. Absolute good will towards all beings of this world should be a high com- mandment for you and should become a dear habit. Moderate your “I” point of view. Observe what you encounter and who you encounter from the other’s point of view and also with the sense of another’s understanding, Also include animals into this kind of observation, especially when they are close to you and your house.” Seven Hermetic Letters Dr. G Lomer astrologist

Law of Vibration.

Everything around us is vibrating, we are vibrating, our thoughts are vibrations. When we are talking to someone we are subconsciously communicating our vibrations to them. It is not our words, it is our vibrations that determine whether that person will stick around or leave. I think staying at a place for a long time automatically lowers our vibrations. We are meeting the same people everyday, we are following the same boring routine everyday. Our life has become stagnant. When we travel, it automatically recharges our battery. We are seeing a new place, we are talking to new people. Every day is a surprise. I think if we fix how we feel from the inside, the life outside will be automatically fixed. Our inner vibrations attract similar vibration in the external world. If we feel joy inside we will attract joy. If we feel fear and anxious we will attract the same in the external world. Whatever is our pre-dominant feeling, we attract the same to our lives. Albert Einstein gave us the equation E =mc^2 . Everything we see around us is energy. Our hands, the wall appear to be solid because the molecules in them are vibrating at a certain rate. If we use our senses to understand this world, we are depriving ourselves of a wealth of knowledge that is beyond the scope of our senses. We should just forget everything that was taught to us in school, and start interpreting everything in the form of vibrations and energies. Our thoughts are powerful vibrations, we are subconsciously sending out signals to the universe and universe responds accordingly. It is important to understand here that there is no matter. There is no you and me, there is no table, fan, wall or car. The entire universe is one big energy ball. We need to condition our mind to represent everything in the form energy, vibrations and frequency.
