    Re-discovering the child within is key to relinquishing our attachments to ideas and thoughts which restrain us from being free and unfettered from the chains of existence and cravings. To be witness to all that is, to feel through one’s essence the emptiness of all which is, to accept that this life is transparent and transient considering all the good we can create displacing the evil and self-centeredness which prevails around us.Discovering that a life of service liberates us from future lives of pain and suffering guarantees that we will carry our consciousness of our spiritual progress into our next incarnations. Trust and faith, hope and joy, light and power to all. Blessings, namaste.

    Seeing the see-er 

    I’ve been reading Ken Wilber’s book: A brief history of everything.  In the later section of the book when talking about fulcrum 9 he mentions the cyclical nature of existence, of how we transcend birth and death and attain or reach ‘Emptiness’.  Although he does call it ‘full’ because it is ‘Source’ and ‘Essence’ of all creation.  It is ‘that’ from which all that is comes from.

    He calls this ‘state’ precisely that, a ‘state’ because it is neither a place nor does it have a location inside or outside of our ‘selves’. He doesn’t go as far as calling this ‘Emptiness’: ‘Soul’ yet I am assuming that this is the ‘state-being’ which he refers to.

    He speaks of rising above the stage of  subtle  ‘being’ to ascend into the ‘causal’ state.  It seems that when achieving this stage  of ‘Being’ one’s individual identity must meld with all which is ‘not’. Because at this level there is not ‘I’, there is no ‘we’, there is no ‘it’ or ‘its’; there is the state beyond matter, yet we intuit it to be a state of being nonetheless.  When we associate our causal state as being pre-matter, a constant of energy and emptiness and space. Can we give identity to -God- that is the totality of what is, what has been, and what will be eternally and infinitely, beyond time and space, containing energy, matter, dark or otherwise, imbued with a consciousness which contains all and which transcends all.

    I am a being of divine love 

    I am a being of Divine Love and Intent formed into a Man/Woman body with an intelligent Mind capable of thoughts and emotions. I am Soul trapped within a Substance/Form from which I create my Heaven or my Hell. I am That I am.
    I am Energy/Essence and Light able to express itself through the WORD.
    My Soul evolves or devolves as I either spiral upwards and inwards towards my inner God or as I become distracted,outward and downward into lower Nature.
    It is the idea of separateness and Self which removes us from Heaven. Hell is defined as having lost one’s way home. The parable of the Prodigal Son defines Hell.
    His return defines the way to Heaven. The Buddha showed us the Middle Way, the path of moderation and non-excessiveness. The Christ showed us the meaning of the Word and the Heart. Remorse begets forgiveness and Love. Through Free Will there is a relinquishing of Self to the concept of Love of Others seen as The Path which reclaims Freedom and restores Heaven within.

    How are we connected? 

    Do we sometimes find ourselves unconnected? Do we ask ourselves the question: How am I connected to a grain of sand on a beach in Belize? or how am I connected to a drop of water in the ocean off the coast of Japan? Or connected to a frog in the rainforests of the Amazon? The answer is in the perception of fluidity which water, fire, earth, and air bring to the movement of matter and energy on the planet and throughout the universe. Molecules are transmitted by those four elements throughout the globe over millions of years are are connected by the fifth element: space. And to think that through planetary collisions it is possible to perceive that our molecules could be floating throughout our solar system and beyond through meteor and asteroid encounters. But beyond matter, it is energetically that we are mostly connected being all part of the planetary energetic whole connected through consciousness and intent and thought.

    satchitananda- enjoying blissful recognition of one’s essence(being) and existence (form). How to describe to someone the colour blue to someone who is blind?
    The being present to our essence is a state, not an appearance; thus only someone who has been in that state can understand another who is there; spiritual blindness exists in all those who’ve forgotten their essence as being spirit; thus their physical existence becomes dominated by ego and mind, by self and attainment and becoming;
    ‘being’ becomes a difficult challenge and for many a daunting questing which is not undertaken because of fear and resistance to surrendering control; ‘mind’ wants to control and ‘fear’ takes over when mind loses control over outcomes.
    We must remain empathetic towards these persons and continue to speak to the need for ending pain and suffering delusions of ego and mind.
    The path of overcoming fear and of choosing courage and vulnerability is spoken and chosen; the proper perception of Humanity being one with all other living beings, of the disintegration of mind’s habit of discrimination, prejudice, and all non-virtuous behaviours which separate one from other by creating other.

    Tags: diversity within Oneness, feedback, social media   

    there are many opportunities to share one’s inner world with facebook, twitter, vimeo, youtube, google, yahoo, hotmail, gmail, and the list is endless, it seems. There are so many avenues for blogging and putting oneself out there to indicate differences and similarities of opinion and values or beliefs of reality. What helps us find out about each other is the ‘tags’ which we place on our writings and blogs to indicate the emphasis of thought. I welcome feedback.

    Addictive tendencies begin when we consume our first… 

    Addictive tendencies begin when we consume our first soother. The result of instant gratification sets the stage for future attempts to reduce stress in one’s internal environment.

    The soother is a substitute for the thumb as a self-controllable method of managing stress.

    As our psyche evolves we discover other alternatives to our thumb, namely sugar and candy and playing with toys. Some children discover that they can manage their stress through destructive behaviour, and if uncorrected in early children, become our adult deviants.

    Adults still resort to using sweets to soothe anxiety as demonstrated by the presence of ‘mints’ in dentists’ and lawyers’ offices.

    There was a televised study which tested children by leaving a bowl of candy on the table and monitoring how long children would take to consume a candy once the adult left the room.

    This was a good case in point to measure how many children were able to resist the tendency towards ‘instant gratification’ to relieve stress in an unknown or unfriendly environment.

    The result is that most children took the candy within various amounts of time after the adult left the room.

    Those who didn’t take the candy were in the minority and were probably resisting to take the candy because of prior socialization of being told to ‘ask before taking’ as a principle of behaviour.

    Some may have resisted taking the candy out of a deeper instilled ‘fear motive’ somehow knowing that some adult was watching even when left alone.

    The invisible ‘God’ principle may have been active in deterring some children from taking the candy.

    Would you have resisted taking the candy or would you have been quick to indulge once left alone?

    I would definitely fall into the second category.

    Fortunately, for most of us, as we develop cognitively our ability to resist urges and tendencies to self-gratify becomes more selective and we do develop some resistance to instant gratification urges.

    However some of us, because of poor cognitive conditioning, never develop the ability to resist urges and tendencies to self-gratify.

    So those of us in this category constantly take advantage of opportunities to self-gratify, perhaps at first with sugar, candy, food (sweet, salty,caffeine,chocolate), masturbation, alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling,work, etc.

    The likelihood of succumbing to addictive tendencies behaviour is dependent on repetition and access to gratifying substances. Take the candy and alcohol away and the psyche will have to find something else with which to self-gratify. The psyche will want to find a substitute to self-gratify.

    I believe that it’s important to differentiate between addictive substances depending on their physiological and psychological addictive qualities which reinforce the frequency of urges.

    The occurrence of increasing obesity in our society highlights the increase in over-eating as the method of choice to relieve stress in our societies, manifested as response to fear or anxiety.

    This increase in insecurity about the future is causing the increase in obesity and over-eating, alcoholism, and self-medicating with pharmaceutical drugs and illegal drugs.

    The relatively steady rate of smoking in society varies modestly depending on the frequency of smoking-cessation promotion by the health authorities and is at around 30%. However the rate of smoking has been relatively gender-constant in the past at 50/50, there is a current shift towards more young girls smoking than boys indicating that they handle stress less well than boys, and/or they are exposed to more peer pressure to smoke than boys because they are generally more interactive socially than boys. The modern incidence of predominantly male use of virtual video war games may contribute to explain its use as a substitute of gratification replacing cigarettes.

    Discussion of the Nature of Evil and of it’s relationship to God or ‘All that is’. 

    Paramahansa Yogananda makes reference in his book: Karma and Reincarnation to the origin of Evil on our planet. He makes reference to the story of Adam and Eve, which is a Jewish Biblical source. I don’t believe that he is using that story literally but metaphorically to explain how mental delusion worked its way into the Human psyche and over hundreds of generations distanced Humanity from the Eternal “God” which is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient: all Power, will, and love.
    The personification of evil as the trans-personal figure of Satan is also meant to be metaphorical. When taken in the context of when the story of the origin of Evil and Satan was created there was an almost total degree of illiteracy amongst Hebrews and previous civilizations: Sumerians, Phoenicians, Assyrians, etc.
    This reality meant that teachings were transmitted orally through the medium of priests or prophets. The symbols used to transmit knowledge were taken from the everyday surroundings of these early peoples and through time were modified as consciousness and literacy evolved.
    The tendency to anthromorphose spiritual entities of God and Satan into Goodness and Evil is natural, that Humanity only had our human nature as model to choose from and so created God and Satan in Man’s image, giving god and satan human traits of goodness, evil, benevolence, and malevolence.
    The dualism of reality took hold historically and Humanity lost knowledge of the pre-post life reality which was before birth and after death. Humanity lived its reality within the confines of the physical cycle of birth and death.
    The concept of consciousness was unknown and the distinction of mind/body didn’t come into being until 500 years before Christ. At about the same time Buddha Shakyamuni was teaching individuals that Humanity were ‘souls’ with physical bodies and God lived within as incarnated Soul. Previous to Buddha individuals had been directed by their communities, its priests, and social leaders. The notion of individual self-determination didn’t exist as a social concept for personal evolution.
    Five hundred years later a prophet named Jesus, the Christ or Saviour, a jew, preached that the ‘kingdom of God is within’ and that Humanity was created in the image of God. He taught in parables orally because the population was illiterate predominantly, and taught using metaphors which the peoples of the times understood.
    He basically overwrote the Classic Commandments which had been given to Moses and simplified the General Moral Directive to two simple commands: Love your God with all your strength, with all your heart, and love your neighbour like yourself.
    This implied that God lived within and that one should treat your neighbours as well as one treated oneself.
    This embodied the laws of Karma and Attraction in one fell swoop.
    This new social treatise destroyed previous cultural and social patterns of living and behaviours which would start to undo thousands of years of negative karma and begin an upward spiral in consciousness which would bring us to where we are today, some two thousand years later, still waiting for the promise of the ‘second coming of the Lord’ to free Humanity from suffering eternally.
