Don’t Be a Piece of Non-Spirituality

“The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.” And Albert Einstein sad this?  Yup.  And he was right. It seems a man certainly solidly entwined in the mechanisms of mind… also had the wisdom to understand that the attachments of mindful ideas of identity were detrimental to living a high quality life and being (from Einstein’s perspective) a high quality human being. And this makes sense to the highest order.  Because let’s take for instance the case that you’re a person who, like over 99% of the rest of the world, is mired in constant judgment of things going on around you… mired in constant analysis of what you think IS you and what is NOT you… mired in constant turmoil of reacting to imbalances in the Equation of Emotion, thereby being negatively affected by that process (causing yourself undue and unnecessary pain and suffering)… and then wasting time in efforts to rebalance the Equation of Emotion during the multiple times of the day where it gets thrown into imbalance.  Are you being an effective human being if you’re wasting all that time with your internal nonsense?  Do you have time to be a compassionate human being when you are caught up in your own mindful illusionary bullshit? No. You don’t have time to attend to anyone but yourself when you’re caught up in that mess.  You’re not being your higher self when you are caught up in the traps of mind that you don’t see if you’re not paying attention to them.  You’re not...

Creating Intentions- I AM The Master Of My Life!

Hi Everyone, Making an intention is your way of stating to your higher self EXACTLY what you would like to experience in regard to a particular subject. Intentions are chosen and made by you, for yourself, as you become aware of who you are and what you need to be happy. An intention is a statement that says you have faith in your ability to achieve what you desire. Intentions show that you are acknowledging a power within yourself and your universe that is capable of providing exactly what you need in order to live your best life. When you make an intention with all of your being you are activating your creative powers. Your intention will be carried through unless you adjust or change your expectation around it. An intention is a symbol of what you REALLY want. We tend to make unconscious intentions based on our past experiences. They come out as unchallenged repetitive statements. For example- ‘I can’t do it, it is too hard’ might be something that you think often without even realising you are thinking it. Even though you may not be aware, your mind is and is doing everything it can to make sure it obeys your every command. YOU are the God to your cells and they desire to please you. By allowing yourself to create unconsciously you find yourself bumping into all sorts of obstacles. You may find yourself complaining about life and blaming circumstance for your misery. Once you begin examining your thoughts and making conscious intentions you will override the loop you are currently enduring. It is like flicking...

Success – Can You Taste It?

Hi Everyone! What a BEAUTIFUL day it is today in Australia. The world really IS a marvellous place. I thought I would bring this article over from another blog of mine to share with you. It is a short story that examines success and the little resistances we may have lurking in our minds that can serve to keep success just beyond our fingertips! It began with a dream, I was a golden, female eagle, with an enormous wingspan, flying high, soaring powerfully through the sky. When without warning, I, dressed as my partner (a male), stepped up and shot at me,  I fell from the sky, looming larger and larger as I approached the earth. I turned to the hunter (me) ‘Are you happy’ I said ‘you have killed this wonderful being for no reason other than your lack of consciousness.’ I, as the hunter, hung my head in shame, wanting nothing more than to take back my unconscious action and restore the beautiful, golden eagle to its former glory. When I awoke I wrote down the dream and allowed my thoughts to flow onto the page, insights came thick and fast! This dream tells me that as I soar to my potential success I have activated an unconscious sabotage program within my psyche. A program that perceives the role of woman as ‘stay at home’ and ‘to be provided for rather than enter the ‘man’s domain’ of money and power. I realise in the modern age it may seem ridiculous to see the world of money and power as the male domain, but we’re talking GENERATIONS of familial and social programming that is...

Love with a BIG ‘L’

Hi Everyone, I have been contemplating LOVE. NICE hey! But really I’ve been thinking about how we use the word ‘love’ to define or justify our non-loving actions. Afraid of being hurt we back away from this thing we call ‘love’. Desperately needing to fill a self-perpetuated void we dive into something we might call ‘love’. A POEM The Ivory Elephant If you let someone love you will they wander off? will they get lost or side tracked, like I did when I was three at the market? The little ivory elephant was my desire then, the square of soap that smelt of sandalwood. My loves, my treasure. If I am someone’s little ivory elephant will they leave me? to fall through the cracks in the back seat of a purple station wagon maybe….. and maybe they will remember me one day, maybe they will remember me fondly. — So L O V E There is love and then there is LOVE. Love with a little ‘l’ is the one that we all dream of and wish for. The one we fear we’ll lose and the one we go to the movies to see. It is like a lollypop, you suck it for awhile, savour it, occasionally bite into it and soon it is done. You might claw at the stick with your teeth to try and extract the last skerrick of sweetness but ultimately the illusion that was the lollipop is now gone, never to be seen again. hmmm disappointing…. Love with the big ‘L’ is the heat beyond the dream, the truth within the wish, the one that can...

Love Swept The Breeze Away

Hi Everyone, A little poetry for you from this Chilly Aussie, although my fingers are cooold on this fresh winter expression of God. Oh and stay tuned for the question at the end! ;-? Love Swept The Breeze Away Fresh and cool it entered then swayed and left, or seemed to, me and you, the saddest flowers in the sun. But the heat that kissed the space just above my skin told me the truth I didn’t know until then. Time entered and sighed and I listened so hard, I pressed my ear against the tight spot in my heart. Feathers ruffled, a moment shuffled, the breeze stung my eyes and made me cry (it didn’t mean to). Breath filled me and called me and kissed me on the inside. Love shifted and swayed and seemed to say, a word that only the tight spot, deep in my heart needed to hear. one soft, perfectly fragrant word….. — Thankyou for reading my poem! The question is ‘What is the WORD?’ Simply pop your word in the comment box and the word that resonates most with me as the author of this poem will receive a digital copy (pdf) of I AM Inspiration! My new book to support those who work with children. (Educators, Parents, Grandparents and Carers etc can all get somethng out of this one) 76 hours from now I will announce the winner! Until then, keep breathing,...

What Lies Behind and Before Us…

Time… is an illusion.  I’m sorry, but it is.  From a pragmatic standpoint, from an observational standpoint, and even from a common sense standpoint… time… doesn’t really exist.  The only moment that ever really exists is the moment of NOW.  All other moments are simply inventions of the mind. I know that thought doesn’t really make sense in our world… a world filled with clocks and appointments, and timed events, and scientific predictions.  But think about it:  Try to remember… when the last time was that you thought about the past… that you weren’t taking up one of your NOWs to do it?  In fact… even right now… we’re taking up a portion of our NOW as we think about a time in the past when we last thought about a time in the past (how META is that?!).  And to make one little additional observation… now that we are remembering that time when we took time to remember a time… was that past moment not just invented in our minds at that moment?  In fact is ANY past moment that we think about then not just being reinvented in our minds at the moment we are thinking about it? In fact that moment IS simply reinvented from our memories at the moment. So that begs a question… does that past moment really exist again NOW, or is it just an invention of your mind NOW?  And does ANY past moment in your life exist NOW, or can you only utilize a NOW to think about that past moment? Similarly when we think about the future (don’t worry… we...
