Perspectives From The Extinction Rebellion Movement

extinction_rebellion-1400x788

As i walked alone to the march, i made my way to Parliament Square, taking in the crowd and atmosphere. There was a peaceful mature energy to the demonstration which felt promising. I’d heard about the movement through a slew of comments made by different people over the previous couple of weeks, so i felt an inclination to go. I had also heard the story about its formation, that there was a strong calling from a woman who set up or helped set up the movement, that she would create a movement that can save the World. This spiked my interest, i wanted to see for myself if there was anything different or similar to this movement and many of the others.

I, like with most other protests id been to, wasn’t expecting change over night and i didnt see this any different However i did notice some interesting things. First of all the very peaceful loving feel to the main congregation on the Square. there seems to be a real intention on positive behaiour and a mature outlook towards the goverment and NGO’s. aas well as that, symbolically, i noticed the Houses of Parliament were being rebuilt.. This i thought poetically can be seen, through my eyes at least, that we are rebuilding this institution, that there is change happening.

It is up to us to dream a positive dream into reality where we believe in positive change,. Yes,  it has been fueled from a deeply dark treatment of Mother Earth and many of the people who are most affected by the capitalist machine. I believe that we, as a collective, have needed to go to these dark depths for change to be implemented. The crazy truth of this situation is, it still could get worse before it gets better, to catalyse more people to wake up, till there actually is enough drive for change. Hopefully we have reached that point that we are at the lowest pit of disconnection to the Planet and are beginning to rise up.

WAKE UP, CLEAN UP, GROW UP time everybody.. I get it, do you?

The World is needing us to wake up, clean up and grow up, like Ken Wilber beautifully stated. Yet it is us, individually, that has to do that process – to wake up, clean up, and grow up and half of that process at least is an internal one. Your internal one!               One by one, we need you to wake up to the reality you are living in.. This word reality works on every level you can think of it, every part of your reality you have the ability to wake up to. Your personal reality, working reality, collective reality and universal reality. The reality, for the collective of this world, is of consumer driven, eco-damaging, workers that ‘need to work’ to survive. With this mindset so prevalent in the World no wonder it is the general consensus/experience for the majority of people here. When we begin to unite with the understanding that things must change, we have then, the ability to educate and facilitate healing on every level for us as a species to grow. It works individually and collectively.

As more and more people wake up to the distortions of our system, to the levels of greed and corruption in the name of global corporations and World banking, we must provide the necessary support to help people begin to see the bigger picture of why the World is set up like this, because it isn’t an accident we have got to this point. It has been very strategically played out by our own consciousness, dressed as figures like Bush, Blair, Thatcher and a thousand others of their ilk. You see the World IS a reflection of us, on an individual level and collective level. All the while we consume fast food, Fast cars and fast living, to hide away from the pain of past events, and separation from the remembrance of who we truly are, we are not healing ourselves. We consume to make ourselves feel better, but it doesn’t work. It feeds the problem, it feeds the suffering we feel because we are not looking in the shadows of ourselves.

I believe as we begin to, as a culture, unveil these shadows to humanity, we can begin to heal these collective wounds and that comes through love. We eventually have to love the part of ourselves that created the problem so we can lovingly embrace it as an accepted part of us.Hating the problem, hating the cancer, hating the manipulation will feed it.. Think Star Wars, hate only leads to the Dark side. WE need to Love the darkness in us and on our planet to embrace it as part of us. It is a high concept to accept and it has been a lesson i have been learning intensely in recent times, so i realize it may take a while to understand AND most importantly accept. Can you accept Life (your life) as it is? Can you accept that terrible things have happened for the upliftment of humanity? Instead of seeing 9-11 as simply a negative conspiracy that caused the death of thousands of people, we can see a bigger perspective that an incident like that has helped trigger people to wake up. The same for the World Wars, it is almost an inevitable cause and effect that led to its destruction and its lessons for humanity to rise to from. To learn from.

I do feel that many of the issues that Extinction Rebellion highlight about the environment is becoming more and more recognized globally. I feel we can start to make the conscious intention to clean up, yet we have to acknowledge that we have to do the inner cleaning at the same time. All the while that shadow is full of crap, our lives will reflect that crap/junk/rubbish we ain’t prepared to face, so we can see it. This is what is manifesting on Earth at the moment.

I see demonstrations like these as beacons, shining light on the ‘crap’ to be seen externally and hopefully internally because the external always reflects what’s going on internally. So what is the cause of global pollution, internally, on a collective level? They are toxic, acidic materials, no different in energy than toxic racism, toxic governance and toxic corporations not harmonized with the Earth’s & Humanity’s best interests. We need to educate the World of the true story of manipulation and highjacking of this planet of ours. Maybe once enough people can accept this understanding, there will be a bigger uprising. Lets remember however, when the penny drops for people, like it did for me and millions of us who have already woken up to this, it’s a big deal. The World you thought you knew dies in that moment and it leaves a lot of questions that need answering sensitively. A lot of anger and frustration is now beginning to surface which is a good thing as more and more people wake up. This stuck energy needs to move, like it does for an individual dealing with inner blockages, negative patterns and dis-ease, it also needs to move in and out of the collective.

There is no excuse anymore to stay ignorant to the individuals & Worlds issues, to the clear manipulation of Governments and leading world organizations to keep the people dumbed down, reflected as a inner disconnection and disempowerment of the self. I will say it folks, there has been a conspiracy and it’s to keep you dumb and disinterested and disconnected with Life. Because at the heart of it you are a being of immense power and beauty and they need you to stay depressed, on medication and wishing you had more, which is a lower state of vibration to a loving, caring and compassionate way of being. As always, a divine plan in action, even if it doesn’t look divine, it is. Life can not choose when to be divine, it always is.Don’t let that be an excuse to do nasty things to people under the banner of divinity, it will come back on the perpetrator eventually so i invite you all to cultivate loving connections and actions.

You are the Life you choose to live.

I write this article to invite you all to care about your Life, about the Life of the Planet and all its perfection on it and to make life affirming choices. You have three homes metaphorically, Your Heart is your inner home, your home is your physical home and your planet is your galactic home. All three need the same care and attention as all the others. Do you get the picture? If one of the homes is not cared for it reflects that on the others, they will all reflect that disconnection.

A World full of people, realizing that they can choose to do the things they love because thats what gives them the most satisfaction is a World i wish to promote. By coming together and recognizing that we all succeed when we individually succeed, we can promote a World where we can and do live our dreams, our highest ambitions.

We need, as a society, to have our basic needs met. Every man woman and child has a given right to Life, to have the things it needs to survive, Food, water, a home, guidance/education and medical treatment. This is a priority for us as a collective to reach, so we can reach higher up the ladder of personal/collective development. While the majority of the World is still in survival mode, it is going to continue to affect the individual & collective experience. The same principle applies that when one of us suffer, we all suffer.

I believe in the power of love to fix all of our problems, as the saying goes.. “It is not going to be the consciousness that created the problem that is going to fix it” “All we need is love”.

Love is a higher state of consciousness, it is our birthright to remember this state of being and as each one of us finds that love within, we will see it reflected in the World outside us. As a collective, when we get out of the survival mode and into following our passions and thriving, we with see total transformation of our experience. All toxins will be gone, all plastics will disappear.. It will happen and we won’t even have remembered how bad it had got.

Until we reach that utopian reality we must Wake up, Clean up & Grow up personally and collectively.

P.S. It is after all, human beings that are keeping this status quo going so it can be the same human beings that can turn the tables on this system!

In our thousands we came,

With the vision the same,

To stand up and be heard.

We joined to unify our word.

In our energy they wilt,

With Parliament being rebuilt,

To follow the will of the people.

In love and harmony it’s done,

We are united as One,

The wake up, clean up & grow up..

An Insight Into The World Of Sacred Ceremony & Plant Medicine.

For thousands of years, indigenous and native peoples all over the World have come together to sit in sacred ceremonies and intentional prayer to honor the interconnectedness of life, between themselves and the environment, acknowledging the forces of nature and the divine intelligence that has created all things. All over the World, The Great Spirit of Life was recognized and shared by those called to spread this knowledge, passed down through lineages of indigenous and native peoples is celebrated in rituals, where song, prayer and reverence is expressed, dedicated to this greater presence. At the heart of these ceremonies is a devotion, an expression of love towards these influencing forces that awaken us to a deep knowing of this interconnection with all things – The Elements, The Directions, The Plant & Animal Spirits, Mother Earth and Universal Life. I wish to share with you my experiences of sitting these sacred ceremonies, as well as the benefits that can be felt from these special gatherings.

I have been blessed to have encountered many native American (the entire continent) traditions during my time living in Mexico. This wisdom that is passed on through the generations, preserving this sacred knowledge, to remind the modern human of our roots and connection to life, the planet & the stars. Each tradition uses sacred elements within these ceremonies to unlock the doors of perception and awaken hearts to our place in reality, from plant medicines, sacred fires, music & sound, intentional prayer and timeless stories of old.

My first experience of these gatherings happened the day before my 34th birthday on Halloween sitting a Ayahuasca ceremony, led by Peruvian shamans. Having heard of this potent medicine through others accounts, i was a little nervous leading into the evening. Ayahuasca, is recognized to contain the psycho-active substance DMT – Dimethyltryptamine. A potent medicine known to propel the experiencer into other realms of consciousness, a substance that is found in nearly all living things and commonly knwn as the spirit molecule. Ayahuasca has astral/multi-dimensional experience to it with the tendency to induce vomiting as a side-effect to its journeying qualities, known as purging. Purging can also take shape in sweating, crying and sometimes shitting, for want of a better word! As the ceremony began, the Shaman gave clear and comforting advice and guideline how best to approach the experience. Each of us were invited to share who we were and why we were there, with the purpose of forming an intention towards the “work” we were about to undertake. Thankfully for me i had a interpreter to relay the messages and wisdom that the Shaman was giving: however as the medicine took effect i began to feel intuitively what the medicine man was sharing, feeling his passion and prayer for the spirit of Ayahuasca (The Grandmother) As Music began to play, i found myself taken on a deep introspective journey. These cosmic lullabies became a container, cradling me, to experience aspects of myself and my past life, long forgotten, hidden beneath years of experience and social conditioning. Feelings of love and gratitude for my Mother, for the people i was sitting with and the unfolding adventure i was on. It became a hommage to all that is sacred in life, the perception of touch and sight greatly increased and a remembrance of this interconnection to all things . I myself didn’t vomit and have yet to in the experiences with this beautiful medicine, my purging was felt through emotional release and sweating. These rituals, encourage us to look at ourselves and the blockages that hinder our growth and expansion, manifest as differing fears in our lives, these ceremonies allow us to see these parts of ourselves we have struggled to acknowledge, giving us the ability to see, and understand why certain experiences were the way they were.

 

These ceremonies soon became a invaluable tool to help know myself better, to unlock a passion for life i never knew existed, a reverence for all things and a recognition of the greater forces at play. I loved the devotion in which the Latin Americans expressed themselves and the honoring of these spirits, whether it be through medicine songs, the sacred fire, the medicines, the people in their lives and the Wisdom keepers & Shamans leading the prayers. It was a culture i felt lost in England and the Western World. I longed for people in the West to experience what id been exposed to.

Through my time in Mexico, I was blessed to have sat with The Marekamie’s, Native Shamans of Mexico, as well as the Tieta’s & Kogi Mama’s of Columbia and the Lakota tradition of Northern America. Each tradition bringing their own unique prayers, medicines and sacred wisdom. The Marekamie, from the Huichol communities in central Mexico are the guardians of Peyote (The Grandfather), the psychoactive cactus made famous in the West by the accounts of Carlos Castaneda and his teacher Don Juan. This Native medicine, the active ingredient being Mescaline, opened me to a profound connection to Mother Earth and an awakening of the heart. Traditionally made with a central fire in which you offer your burdens and blessings to be transformed by this primal energy/spirit. Accompanied by native and Latin medicine music, the group are taken on deep  and expanding journeys throughout the night til the sun rises, giving the feeling of being reborn as the ceremony ends.

The circle provides a safe space to make these vision quests, where the experiencer journeys to the inner Worlds, with many people experiencing meetings with animal spirits as well as other beings. Each person has their own trip through their consciousness, recalling memories, traumas, insights and inspiration, which quite often echoes through the following days after the ceremonies. As a meditator, i found these journeys to be highly beneficial not only during the process, but for the continuing days when cultivating a practice of healing, stillness and self inquiry. The power of intention with the prayer can not be underestimated, especially when a large group come together, experiencing such incredible openings of love unifying these intentions. I have found so much compassion and heartfelt devotion towards life during and since partaking in these events that i wish to share a glimpse of these magical portals of connection.

Since returning from Mexico to England, i have experienced the medicine, prayers and ceremonies of the native traditions of these lands, in the poetic Earthy wisdom of Druidry & the magic mushroom. I am so grateful to see that we too have this ancient knowledge & Wisdom keepers, singing these tales of old to a much needed culture that has unfortunately lost its connection to the Pagan/Druid teachings of interconnection to nature and the elemental beings. Today i feel more optimistic than ever that the sacred medicines and messages can be felt by the people who need it most. England has a beautiful and rich tradition that is waiting to be heard for those who wish to awaken to the truth of who they are and to see this World as The Garden of Eden that it is.  

I feel so much is not known or understood in Western society of these practices, what with the classification of these plants as illegal in many parts of the World, i believe, because of the effectiveness of awakening us to a deeper truth of who we are and our relationship to all things. Natural plants like Cannabis, Mushrooms, Peyote and Ayahuasca are here on Earth for a reason and they have the qualities they have for very good reason.. I feel these plants can be tools to help us heal, allowing us the opportunity to process our traumas and life experiences and when we change our relationship with them, seeing them as spiritual guides and medicine, not as illegal drugs, we can maximize their benefits to expand our consciousness. Now i recognize these plants are not for everybody and i encourage anyone who is reading this to feel within themselves whether it is something they would like to experience, those who are open to taking these medicines will likely have very supportive and positive experiences. Those who do not like the idea of ingesting these plants will likely never take them anyway. I must add that medicines such as cacao (natural chocolate), fire, tea and incense ceremonies also have hugely beneficial qualities to help us to get in touch with our inner world without ingesting psycho-active substances, for those who wish to deepen their connection and manifest their deepest intentions of healing, peace, love and unity in groups. Even a simple prayer alone with intention, can send out messages to the universe that you are ready for change, that you are open to love and ready for your prayers to be answered.

I feel it important to share with this information, anyone who is looking to take part in these ceremonies, to research, preferably through recommendations, to find a guide who you trust or someone else who has direct experience of their work, that is working with pure intention. This is very important when taking these medicines, to feel supported and looked after as the experiencer is in a vulnerable position while they are on their journey and only those with the highest intentions should be considered when deciding to partake in these rituals. You may be called to use your discernment, follow what you feel, ask always for guidance from within, for signs or answers to these questions.

It is impossible to fully express in words what these rituals have shown me and continue to show me, yet i write this to share my experience for those who feel open to the lessons that can be learnt through these experiences. I have encountered so many beautiful people when taking part in these practices that has forever left a warm, heartfelt memory of sacredness shared between us. A truly precious gift. Giving thanks to all those who I’ve sat with, listened and learned from, the Shamen, musicians, healers and guides who support the experience and the medicines that have helped open me to greater understanding of the mysteries of life.

I am offering 1 on 1 psychedelic coaching in the UK for those wishing to better understand the benifits of these plants and substances, so that you can be as well prepared for the expeience and offering guidance after the journey to help with any processing of  information recieved or support with intense experiences.  https://theallthatis336549859.wordpress.com/psychedelic-coaching/

Truth of Responsibility – (Incl. Borean Calling Gematria Ascension Code video)

 

Back in April of this year (2018) i found a youtube channel that was decoding messages from people who had received visions and guidance during spiritual experiences after the Ascension codes of Neo Glimmer were released. Since then i have been following the channel and its messages. This week i had a message decoded relating to the “Truth of Responsibility” I wish to share the backstory as a way of exercising my willingness to stand tall and transparent during the highs & lows of this awakening process.

Fast forward to August of this year, i have returned to England after the breakdown of my relationship with the Mother of my 2 children from Mexico. i was in a pretty contemplative place, acclimatizing to life back in the UK as well as the shock of the previous few months decline of my World in Tepoztlan. i was being accused of abandoning my children and that i needed to take responsibility for or lacking responsibility for my children. This led me to a deep internal inquiry as to what the truth of responsibility is. This inquiry was further amplified by 3 different people during the space of 10 hours ask me the same question relating to my discussions with my ex partner, which i felt was very synchronistic.

So i first contemplated this idea, who am i truly responsible for in the eyes of consciousness, seeing that the highest teachings tell me I Am The All That Is. Who can i be responsible for, if I Am That? There is nobody outside of “me”. It became very clear that Self responsibility is the only true, pure truth of this concept.. because by awakening to Self responsibility, I Am in-fact uplifting myself from the Small “i” (me, Paul) to One with The Self (spirit/consciousness). When one is being Self responsible, naturally you have care and the wider understanding of the nature of each and every being in the universe and their relationship to you. To wake up to that living reality is a blessing that we are all here to experience. By knowing there is One consciousness and that every being is One with that consciousness implies a profound recognition that all beings are the same and that no harm could ever be committed to another in that state of awareness..

The greatest gift you can offer the World is your own Self Realization – Ramana Maharshi

This quote, as well as Ramana’s picture, was literally hovering over my head when i slipped into meditation. Very quickly i found myself in a acutely aware state of being, then suddenly a small Indian boy appeared to me in my inner vision. He turned, looking directly into my eyes and in a flash my heart burst open like a bottle of champagne, spilling love and bliss out from what seemed like eternal sea from my body that i could no longer identify with. I believe the Indian boy was a young Ramana. I received a very clear message that i was not to participate in the “old” paradigm but to bring in the “new” paradigm. I came out of the meditation at 3.33am.

For me, this concept of the old and new paradigm meant very simply that i am to choose love not hate in the actions i take. To recognize i am love, whole and complete and that worry, fear and negativity was not and will not be promoted in this new paradigm. This also meant, to me, the negative energy in which society in general & particularly the mother of my children, was projecting  towards me, promoting a belief in lack, abandonment & insecurity as some kind of guilt trip was not to be taken on or encouraged. This was a big realization, for i knew at that moment, it was not only my spiritual enlightenment that this shift was about but for her own spiritual development to not feed the belief in lack & insecurities. I realized that the New Earth was not to be created and experienced through fear and distortion of people’s opinions of right and wrongs. This is duality, of the mind. The New Earth is a heart based society..The heart does not care of opinions and judgement, the heart knows all and is the seat of peace, unconditional love and bliss.

Now i am not writing this to convince people of anything. I am sharing some honest perspectives which i feel ultimately come down to knowing the meaning of language in relation to the truth of consciousness. Those who are willing to look at the deepest aspects of the nature of consciousness have genuine accounts of spiritual realizations, no matter how beautiful they are or how fucked up a situation, materially, it may seem to be. Of course many people are not ready to acknowledge these attitudes and simply live in the old paradigm of fear. All i know is that WE do not have to worry anymore.. anyone who truly follows this path of spirituality, will find that fear is the product of mind and seeing that we are creator beings who manifest from the mental & emotional bodies, it is vital that we recognize our mental conditioning of fear. Even if  maybe we are penniless or unsafe, or insecure or unworthy, any of these relative truths, we must do what we can to change our mental projections about our lives. It is each beings individual choice – free will. We will create what we mentally put our energy towards, positive, neutral or negative life experiences… Which do you choose?

I have been blessed with clarity through these revelations, which has also tested me to my very core in respect to my relationship to my family both in Mexico and England who do not understand this decision. Also it has made me look at who i thought i was. Ive been a “nice guy” in the eyes of those who know me, as somebody “who did what the others do”,  but this isn’t what the World needs anymore, the World needs spiritual warriors who will untether the knots of the social conditioning of fear, even in the face of condemnation by people who know no different. History is littered with beings who were ahead of the time in terms of ideas, philosophy and science and were ostracized and misunderstood.

Everyday is a test that i am (relatively speaking) apart from my family and i trust i will have a significant present role in their lives and also that the Mother of my children will awaken to her divinity, her empowerment and worthiness to create and embody the New Earth frequency of love.

As a result of that revelation, i experienced complete unconditional love. I knew at that moment, through my direct experience, that I Am that love, The Self, and i knew at that moment that my unconditional love is truly and absolutely, the purest connection i could have to myself and The All That Is.

What is Meditation?

Meditation-wide-HD-wallpapers-8484

 

Meditation is not a doing. It is the realization that you are. It is Being – Eckhart Tolle

When most people think of meditation they think of a practice of sitting in a crossed legged position, with the aim of quieting the mind or achieving some higher state of consciousness, to obtain some state of peace and tranquility in the midst of our busy hectic lives. All these have relevance in terms of meditation, you can say they are by-products of meditation. Let us take the great Yogi Patanjali, in his Yoga Sultras. Considered by many to be the definition of the philosophy of yoga, he defines yoga/meditation (this unified state of being) as, The cessations of the fluctuations of the mind.  The next Sultra completes the statement by saying – And then the Seer abides in it true nature. So, let me re-phrase this so it can be better understood. The first part suggests, that with allowing of the mind to quieten, a space is revealed in which, the second part – the Seer (awareness) sits in its pure state, pure consciousness, free of concern, detached from thought. Being. This is the state of true meditation.

We must understand that ultimately what we are talking about, is something that can not be objectified in words. Meditation in its greatest sense, is recognizing, that it is the Subject itself. Life, Awareness, Consciousness, God – which ever you choose and which even these words, are ultimately objectifications of this mystery that can’t be named. So from now on i will use these words as pointers to this subject. It is beyond any ‘thing’, beyond any word or concept, as are you. That is truly your fullness. So when you use the mind to label and objectify some’thing’ remember it can not be the truth as what this Awareness, Presence, Life is, is not a thing, it simply Is, before conceptualization. This is why meditation can seem so slippery. So let me give you some tips on how we can allow this revelation to arise.

Meditation can be said is the awareness, that everything arises in.. for example As you read these words now, the words, the thoughts, the room you are in and the sky above your head are all arising now inside your awareness. Meditation is the recognition of this spontaneous perfection and the allowing of all of the thoughts, sensations and experiences to be there. which is already, always happening, is it not?.

Now the trick is to allow the experience to arise, and observe and embrace the moment as it is, whether that is felt as fear, tension, anxiety, depression, love, joy or contentment. Can we stop and allow ourselves to accept the arising World, with its flavors and textures, without judging, resisting or holding onto them or even the idea of them which is of the mind. We can watch the body and mind and its sensations and judgements, yet the mastery is the ability to be aware and allow the thoughts and sensations to be there as a expression of your true experience. This is being. Aware yet detached from the ‘things’ that arise.

There is a beautiful metaphor to describe the play of meditation – your awareness is the vast sky and your thoughts and sensations are the passing clouds. We can acknowledge, how like thoughts and sensations, clouds come and go (unless you live in the uk.. haha) they are temporary, always appearing, staying for some time and dissolving. Even when the clouds are thick we know the sky (our awareness) is always there as the canvas for the clouds. Our awareness shines regardless of the fluctuations of thoughts and sensations, so if we are able to perceive the transitory nature of thoughts and sensations we can better recognize the awareness that the thoughts and sensations arise in.

As we learn to accept this natural aspect of human experience (thoughts emotions and sensations), not as a hinder in meditation, but rather one that enriches our experience, for the simple reason of being. Being does not deny anything, as its nature it is accepting, which is why being is so intimately linked with the heart, as the Heart is the source, you can say, of unconditional love.

We then need to recognize the dual nature of the mind and the role it plays as a tool for the intellect, logic and memory and how thoughts in themselves can be seen as either projections to past or future situations. The mind therefore can be seen as the obstacle  of meditation, as the nature of meditation is Unity Consciousness, Oneness, which can again be said, is of the heart.. The mind has its polar hemispheres symbolizing duality whilst the Heart is the symbol of Unity & love. The mind will always have an question, the heart will always have an answer. Yet in reality there are no obstacles to consciousness and this is the approach to take with the practice of meditation in relation to the body-mind fluctuations.

So let us become intimate with our present moment.. Allowing the bubbling in your stomach that arises before you make a big presentation, allow the grief to be there when your best friend from school passes away. Just in the same way you completely allow yourself to feel the love and gratitude you have for your friends and family or the unconditional love your pets show you every day. Stop resisting your experience, become truly conscious to it! If you have pain, feel the pain completely, honor your experience in the Now. When we resist our experience, however it is arising, we are saying that is moment shouldn’t be this way, or that life is wrong. This is one of the causes of suffering, failing to accept this moment you are experiencing as it is. Now that is not to say you sit back while you receive abuse for example. Abuse, whether physical, emotional or any other form is not to be tolerated, yet you can take yourself out of a situation and still have compassion and awareness for yourself and the other. We can own our inner experience and it is from this place that meditation empowers us. If we can accept these thoughts and emotions that become alive in us, we embrace the moment fully. In fact this is the opening to peace, through the embrace of who you are in this moment….                          and this moment…                          and this moment.

One of the traps of the mind is to find yourself saying “i want peace” “i want unconditional love” “i want to meditate”, this is suggesting that you are not already full and whole as you are, that you are separate from peace or love. This is not possible, as it is the very fabric and nature of consciousness – that you are. These statements are of the mind reinforcing the belief in separation, that I am here and Peace & love are outside of me, or they are things to be obtained. We can ask the question, Who wants peace and love? If it is, of the mind and i am aware, when the mind is not there, then Who Am I?

The awakening, meditation can reveal, is the realization, I stands alone as consciousness, before I Am or I Am This or That, with nothing to obtain. That you are whole, complete and everlasting. Meditation reveals the very source of creation and the entire universe is within you. Let us summarize this with a quote from possibly the most well known person in human history, who happened to know a thing of too about this stuff… apparently.

The kingdom of God is within you – J.C.

Remembering every single word on this page is but a pointer, it can never be the truth as the truth is beyond concepts and written words and recognizing the nature of mind. If we can learn to accept the mind, through the practice of meditation, it can surrender its position of control to allow the passivity of the Heart to lead our lives. Take this wonderment of who you are with you, as you embrace the majesty of life, inside and out.
