Your Awareness Will Set You Free

Your Awareness Will Set You Free

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Thich Nhat Hanh states, “When I have a toothache, I discover that not having a toothache is a wonderful thing. That is peace. I had to have a toothache in order to be enlightened, to know that not having one is wonderful. My nontoothache is peace, is joy. But when I do not have a toothache, I do not seem to be very happy. Therefore to look deeply at the present moment and see that I have a nontoothache, that can make me very happy already.” ​It is our awareness that sets us free! …

We Are All One In The Ocean Of Life

We Are All One In The Ocean Of Life

​The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer – Gandhi Like individual droplets of water merged to form the ocean, we are all one in this life. The consciousness I hold flows through the drops around me. When collective consciousness unites together in belief, cause, or nation, it may form flowing ripples or crashing waves in the world in which we live. World peace is a worthy goal and even more important, a state of consciousness. As I affirm thoughts of peace, those thoughts ripple out to the world around me. I choose to live in peace with all humankind, and …

​ Help me

​ Help me

I’ve been told I belong to the people. I’ve been asked to come here to help raise consciousness, and to be completely honest, I don’t even like anything that much. SO I need help. I don’t know who to ask help of… So I ask everyone. I ask mystics, I spend $160 for an hour of present consciousness and inspired good, it works, sort of. I ask the flowers of remembrance and forgetting. “Poppies, help me to cut chords.” I ask, “Arch Angel Micheal remove the blocks and take me to a new place, remind me that I do deserve happiness and health, even though I’m really not yet perfect.” …

We Are All One In The Ocean Of Life

​ A Fresh Take On Some Classic Words

​Sensitivity: Let’s talk about becoming sensitive to the amazing harmony in the way the universe is put together. This is an elegant and charming universe if we make the space to recognize it.  Sensitivity is the ability to walk in the world while simultaneously being available to the world. Allowing the world to move you. In a fresh way, to see how are you haven’t yet seen, hear what you couldn’t hear, and BE in a new and present way. Time: (The hidden hand that holds all things). Time is an illusion and possibly trap. All of us with watches are on different time, even if they both say 11:11, the seconds …

It's Time To Conduct A Possibility Audit

Time To Conduct A Possibility Audit

We are wasting time investing our life and energies into the superfluous, into the things we cannot take with us. If we were to radically shift our priorities to developing inner peace, inner compassion, inner knowing; we would feel this profound relief which comes from unburdening ourselves from the weight of worry, doubt, and fear of inconsequential things. This is an elegant and charming universe if we make the space to recognize it. The important thing is to make the space. Is to relax and let the highs and lows come and go, to stick to the practice of living no matter what. If you find joy and value in …

Truth Above All Else

Truth Above All Else

​I believe we must always be diligently pursuing truth in our public and personal life. No matter what the odds, no matter what the situation, we must be diligent in our search for truth. Truth beyond emotions. Truth beyond judgement. Truth as a witness. Truth, the truth. I am wedded to truth. I am in the pursuit of truth. I am a truth farmer; planting seeds of truth, giving life to what really is. If we see what really is, what we really are, we don’t need all that stuff we are not. If you find joy and value in what I do and share, please consider supporting with a …

Brag About What You DON'T Know

Everyone Talks About What They Know, We’ll Brag About What We DON’T Know

​It takes a person who is supremely confident to talk about the things they don’t know. What if on a first date instead of saying all the things you were good at and how special you were in unique you were you were not in shared what you didn’t know, what you were afraid of, wouldn’t that build more trust? If you’re willing to share what’s wrong, then there must be an awful lot that’s right. I need confidence to be humble, front run your weaknesses. Tell me what you don’t know. What you don’t know, will reveal what you do know. If you find joy and value in what …

​ In Every Challenging Situation You Have 4 Options

​ In Every Challenging Situation You Have 4 Options

What you choose is up to you. There is no right or wrong, just choices. What you choose depends on your level of commitment. What you choose reveals the worth of the thing itself. Exit: Leave your country, leave your spouse, leave your job, get up and go. Neglect: Do as little as possible, try to go unnoticed, try and forget what’s happening, try and fill up your life with side hobbies and addictions that allow you to forget. Persist: See what’s happening and persist on. Believe in things changing, believe in a new tomorrow, believe that things will get better. Voice: Voice your concerns. Speak up and out against …

The Stories We Tell Ourselves Are Just Like Lenses Of A Camera

The Stories We Tell Ourselves Are Just Like Lenses Of A Camera

A scene with 105mm lens looks different than it does with a 35mm lens, same scene, just different. There is no need to argue over which one is more true, both are true, they are merely different levels of magnification. It is in this way we magnify the stories of the moments in our lives. We zoom in on the pain and the discomfort and we let all the invisible good, all the blessings that are constantly here fall away to the background. What am I zooming in on? What is in soft focus? What is in sharp focus? We get to choose the lens in which we use to …
