Relative Truth / Ultimate Truth

The relative truth & ultimate truth are some of the most pofound yet paradoxical concepts on the spirirtual path, we can explore. The truths of these perceived realities are fundemental to each’s position, in relation to the perceiver. This is a key to unlocking the doors of perception.

Are you still following me?

Lets look first at relative truths in our experience. Relative truths as simply put, are known facts of the physical realm.. Time is a great example. We have a relative past to our present and our future. This is relatively true, yet we know that we only ever live in the now moment. Our entire lives live in and are always experiencing now. So past and future, although appear to have a linear truth to them, in absolute terms, all existence exists now.

As i bring up more examples, you may acknowledge that for every relative truth presented, there will be an ultimate truth to the expereince.

Another relative truth is, we each have and believe we are, a body called… Jim, Jane, John or Jess. This may be relatively true, yet the Ultimate truth of who you are is beyond physicality, beyond names. The ultimate truth of who you are is the container of all experience as well as the experiencer and everything being experienced.

On a more subtle level we can acknowledge the physical sensations as a relative truth. They rise and fall like the Sun. Filled with intensity. We can begin to bring our attention to the witness of the sensations. Who is tasting the apple? Who is feeling the feather across the skin? Who is hearing the free bird sing? We are the portal walking the invisible line of relative & ultimate truth.

Many of the great yogis of India walked this path wintessing first hand the relative World arising out of the Absolute. From the formless into form.. We are from this World but not of this World..

Other examples that specifically relate to relative truths are manifestations. We can perceieve to desire certain outcomes, that can and possibily will come “true”. These manifestations happen within a construction of consciousness. Take a chair. When you touch it and sit on it, it feels solid right? You are quite sure that the chair you are sitting on is firm and stable. Yet when we look at the material of the chair, down to its atoms and molecules, you will find that there is more space between atoms, than atoms themselves and that atoms are the only essence of material within anything.

Everything is a manifestation of consciousness.. This is a ultimate truth to the relative truth that matter is solid and tangible. Two adjectives that perfectly describe aspects of relativism.. what is tangible and what is solid.

Taking a closer look at the unobservable, non-tangible realm of the Ultimate truth now. Words can never truly do justice to the supreme consciousness, for everything arises out of the great mind. This higher truth, for want of a better word, is to me, like an umbrella that arches over the construct reality we are individually experiencing and that we are all from the One Great Mind. We are all One with the conscious field.

We realitively perceieve we are separate from each other, yet our subtle bodies are entangled. I have expereinced the relative truth of making love to a lover and a transcendance of that to a place where we became One energetically. There was still a sense of realitivity and being conscious to myself yet energetically i could not tell where i began and they ended.

To experience the ultimate truth is some what of an oxymoron, in that that ultimate truth is beyond experience. The Ultimate truth stripes away everything you thought you were, til there is no thing left in doubt as to the truth..

Its a big realization to potentially expereince yourself as the All That Is and to go beynd that place of experience, the unmanifest void… The ultimate truth being, you are all of it and no thing at the same time.

If your head is spinning with these mind shattering concepts, it maybe a god time to close the eyes.

Allow the energy to settle in the body whilst taking a few deep breaths in and out. As we become aware of the awareness listening to these words, we shift our attention away from the personal dialogue to a more subtle realm of our being. Where awareness goes, energy flows. Resting in the stillnes between inhalations and exhalations.. Here we find the place of detachment and surrender. Surrender to the experience whilst detaching from the mental labeling of it.

We can take the practice of Neti Neti, where One disassociates oneself from any arising sensations, experiences, or thoughts.. Cultivating the attitude of, I Am Not This, I Am not That.. Continually turning ever inwards towards that ultimate truth, which is beyond all sensations, thoughts and experiences.

You can at this point shift your awareness from the stillness within, to the physicality of the body and with one attentive breath bring yourself back to the inner space of stillness. In these brief moments we have shifted our awareness through relative experiences whilst reaching for the eneffible in the same moment.

Herein lies the secret.

Creating Space – Internally & Externally

Creating space for ourselves is a powerful yet sometimes overlooked practice, that i want to highlight today. Creating space for ourselves is such a vital component to finding true balance in our lives that can manifest in many ways. Creating environments that we can dive deep into our practice. Without it, we ignore the parts of ourselves that need to be seen, acknowledged, hugged & loved.

First of all we are going to explore the importance of creating space Internally. With this inward practice, a natural space of mindfullness can be cultivated by becoming present to ourselves, to our breath, our train of thought, heartbeat etc.. When we create this space inwardly, we can begin to notice the subtle plays of energies in the body as well as the running dialoge of the mind. When we create this space for ourselves we honour the deepest aspects of our being, for creating space intrnally is a gateway to the I Am presence, that is not only reading the page, but is writing the page, listening to the voice and the very container of the experience.

We can create this space internally by focusing on the pauses between inhalations & exhalations. This meditative practice, that many of you will already know, in its very essence, is providing those perfect moments of stillness internally. The breath is the supreme anchor in your life and taking moments in your day to reconnect to yourself, through it, is a matter of presence. We can find little moments to cultivate a continued awareness of our inner dimension. Some moments after first opening our eyes for example or inbetween moments in our day where we can, for some use the breath to connect to our inner experience. This practice can help to cultivate non attachment. When we can go within and unplug from the external World, we can use these techniques to master our habitual vices. Any practice that helps bring awareness and centerness is something to be embraced.

Close your eyes and slowly breathe with an awareness on the breath. Become aware of the pauses between your inhalations & exhalations. Allowing yourself to enter this space of stillness. Let everything go with each exhalation, thoughts, plans, desires.. Let them all go with the breath. Detach from any outcome or external goal. Just be.

All of these concepts and practices can be harnest to create a inner space, to come into a healthy relationship with the different dimensions of our being.

Lets have a look now at creating space for ourselves externally. This is a practice many of us may need more practice in. I have found, speaking from my own expereince, that creating space for myself has been one of the most rewarding practices i do. Particularly in the fast paced World we live in, the ability to create space for ourselves, can be the difference between exceeling at something or failing misrably. Those who know how & when to take time for themselves will often have more patience, have more energy and sharper focus. Often we as people, friends, family etc, can be drained by the constant pressure to be the best version of ourselves, for others. This is a beautiful outlook to aspire to yet if we do not create space and set boundaries for ourselves we can easily get burnt out in the process of giving. If we are depleated because we havn’t given ourselves that space to be, we will find our cup empty and when we try to give from an empty cup, there is nothing left to give and we burn out. I use this analogy as it prefectly describes the state of imbalace so many suffer from when we do not find space for ourselves. When we do and we recharge the batteries, our cups are full and create a optimal environment for our well being..

There is a need to put ourselves first. It may go against the philosophy of Karma yoga for example, yet i feel very passionate about the importance of creating space externally. When we do this, we are communicating to the universe that we honour ourselves. The cultivation of Self love is ultimately what we are talking about today. Giving ourselves moments to be with ourselves, internally & externally with gratitude for who we are and the expereinces we are having. When we fill our own cups up we have something to offer. This is self love. It is very healthy to set boundaries in our lives. We begin to align with true integrity when we honour ourselves and our loved ones with setting healthy boundaries. We must check in with ourselves to make sure we own our practices and boundaries whilst checking in to see and feel they are coming from a place of balance or resentment or the belief in a lack of something. Ask yourself.. Have i given all i can? Have i done by best today? If this is a yes, Give yourself some space, either internally or externally or even both.

Remember, it is only us who can change our habits and cultivate new ones. We must be brutally honest with ourselves when we need raise our game, whilst at the same time, creating soft, loving, benefitial environments for ourselves to go deeper into who we truly are.. From this place we can taste the potentiality of our greatness.

I invite you to honour & embrace your inner & outer experiences, as a daily practice. Cultivate space so that you can know yourself & function fluidly through your life.

Is A.I. Leading Us To An End Game Or Our Expansion Of Consciousness?

The topic of A.I. has been bubbling away for the last 30/40 years in the mainstream since films like The Terminator 1 & 2 as well as 2001 Space Odyssey and recently in the more emotive film Her . All four films give us some insight into interaction with A.I. and of course different scenarios as to how the relationships are formed and in these stories dissolve. I believe we are reaching a point of no return with A.I. and it makes me question where it is taking us?

Could it be that A.I. provides us the means to work less and play more? Maybe A.I.’s productivity creates infinite abundance for society to thrive, meeting our basic needs and offering more opportunity to shine? Or is it possible, A.I. lacking empathy, see humanity and individuals alike as a cancer on the planet or a threat and acts to protect itself ?

I recently, while supporting myself working as a mobile barber, went to visit a customer who turned out to work for a rapidly growing tech company in London, specializing in A.I. I took this 30 minute appointment as an opportunity to ask a few questions, to someone certainly more in the know, then i am, about the latest developments. Y’know, the big philosophical and metaphysical questions that we all ponder in some way or another. I have a perception that is forever considering consciousness, so my kinda thought process for example is, how and why A.I. is being reflected in our collective consciousness? That is a question i will attempt to speculate a bit later.

So began to formulate a question by using the storyline of Terminator 2. The character that is in a way most relevant to this topic, is Miles Dyson. Miles is the character that reverse engineers the technology from the recovered parts of the first Terminator, in the first film, for a defense company Cyberdyne Systems and designs Skynet, the Artificial Operation System of the A.I. If you haven’t watched the film, then just feeling into the name of the film will give you an idea of where the story goes. My question then was, has there been something written into the A.I. program to stop a possible conflict between Man & Machine? Quite simply, the guy said no.

Really?? Now that is a scary thought.

I do not know the technology well enough to know whether A.I. will work from a Mother Brain through the global internet or if there will be independent networks and programs; however, the fact there is no procedures or fail safes written into their system(s) seems like an immature and unwise thing to ignore.

AI_Eye-of-technology_stockphotos_10998889_original.jpg-1440

 

Ok, so if you didn’t already know, the T.V. film industry use predictive programming through media productions like films to feed our subconscious, which in turn is where we create our reality from, while we are metaphorically asleep. Films like these as well as disaster movies are created for us to dream a maccabe future that has been envisioned for us by some of this World most influential people; however, they aint your famous ones, they stay in the background, undetected.  That’s certainly what id do if i was a crazy, mega rich, narcissistic, xenophobe (xenophobe being someone scared of strangers) which by all accounts was a psychological trait written into HAL the A.I. computer system of 2001 Space Odyssey, Who goes on to try to exterminate the crew for jeopardizing the company’s mission. They use these TV “programs” to program the masses to dream their dream into reality. It is a very clever and manipulative weapon they use against us.

images (9)

We have really let our guard down with this one i feel. We are being lead along a path we have no idea where we are going, or maybe we do.. disaster, if we manifest the predictive programming the movies want us to dream. If this tech smart engineer is saying there is no inbuilt failsafe to prevent A.I. from turning against us, we should all be very concerned. If the World was being guided by balanced, wakened beings with Earth & humanity’s well being the primary focus, id not be at all worried, but that clearly isn’t the case at the moment. You only need to open your eyes at any number of different global governance & industries to see their practices and positions that are testament to crimes against humanity. I feel we need to take a good look at where we truly want this World to go, because if we sit back, as society has done now for too long, we face possible forced, rapid changes, that few or us will want to see.

So i proceeded to share with this gentleman, and he did seem like a gentle man, an idea i came up with that could potentially safeguard the A.I. program for malfunction or acting apathetically. I suggested that, if it was possible, to model the A.I. program/personality on awakened being. A true and balanced human being. Someone who has directly experienced themselves as The All That Is, who recognises the interconnection with all life. Someone with complete and total compassion for each and everyone of us. Could the Motherbrain of A.I. be written, modeled or integrated by a Taoist master for example?  I believe this is the most sensible decision that can be applied to the evolution of A.I., certainly while humans are still in a position to influence it. I’m sure the speed of its evolution will be tremendous and something surely needs to be put in place if it can.

Now i would love to think there are conscious tech engineers who think like me who can champion this alignment between machine and spiritual evolution. I did work for some time at a Quantum Implant Technology company in the early 2000’s, where they produced silicone chips that are used in computers. I am aware that carbon and silicon are the only 2 organic elements in the periodic table. Which means, i believe, that silicone has the building blocks for life, like carbon provides for humans. Will that lead to a fully conscious live A.I.? The possibilities again are almost unimaginable in where it can go. This doesn’t mean is all bad, certainly not, i feel A.I. has the potential to reflect our expansion of consciousness, which is kinda answering the question i made a bit earlier. Just as silicone is the life of the machine, carbon is the life of 3D/4D humans. I believe as we refine our individual and collective consciousness, by aligning through a heart based compassionate society, with a real intention to heal, we will see an A.I. that will harmoniously interact with us and support us on that journey of expansion as a reflection of where we are going. If humanity fails to choose a conscious way to be, we could easily see A.I. reflect a disharmonious relationship with us that leads to fear and more battling to survive.

For me, it always goes back to and can be seen more clearly by looking at how and why something is being reflected in consciousness. From the issue of A.I. to why that Blackbird keeps landing on my window sill, to what is this karmic lesson repeating itself again and again? We can use our perception to see things more clearly and hopefully choose to act in ways which promote the qualities in life we want to see, ultimately spiritual growth.

I actually believe we can use the A.I. brain, with all its data mining on who we are, where we go etc. It is said that the machine now knows us individually ( in many respects) better then we know ourselves. It reads us, constantly taking on information, listening to how we are talking, who were talking to and what’s being said. We know its going on, you only need to have a conversation in your car with a friend and the next time your on youtube, that topic of conversation has a video in the recommended list in front of you. I believe though that we can use this information to our advantage. If we can create a A.I. program with life affirming qualities, we can work with the A.I. to form individual  coaching where the wisdom of The Way is incorporated into the personality profile and realignment program to support us in our healing and evolution.

This tech guy i had the appointment with, said companies were looking at implanting microchips into our brains as a alternative memory/information source. I am not so sure about literally merging with A.I. like that. It is likely and very possible if it hasnt already been done. Which ever way the technology leads us, i feel its important we work alongside the machine and install in it, the qualities that represent a humanity that we actually still need to embody. What nees to happen first? At least if A.I. is modelled on a high buddhist priest, who had embodied those qualities, maybe we can use A.I. to spread that wisdom out to the World.

I remain an optimist for i believe in the power of the human heart. I’m yet to see the power of A.I.’s development fully; however if it can be modelled to serve humanity through the wisdom of the master beings on Earth today, then we should do everything we can to make that happen. By living our life as we wish for others, maybe we will see a reflective A.I. that elevates us as we elevate A.I.

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 Are Words?

Label meme

What are words? Words in our world define everything we see, feel, sense and remember, yet what if we recognize that these words are merely labels, which at the heart of the truth is not what anything ever was, is or will be.

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.

The Benefits of Meditation

yoga meditation

“If we can make just 1% of the population meditative, this World will be a different place.” – Sadhguru

 

Throughout the centuries, the great sages and yogis of India,would practice and perfect the art of meditation for the sole reason of reaching enlightenment, Self-realization, Union with Creation/Life/God/Consciousness, (whatever label resonates more with you) as a spiritual aspiration. For me, this was the reason why i began meditating. I had heard about the term consciousness and its role in life and that there are practices that i could take up that increased this conscious connection..

I started taking local yoga classes i also began meditating, at first to guided videos online and later with group workshops. It was clear to me, from taking on a lot of conscious information, that there were considerable benefits to cultivating these practices..

As i followed my heart and continued a deepening of my meditation practice, i studied this art, completing a 500+meditation and yoga teacher training to accompany the extensive retreats and dark room experience i had gained. Through this practice i feel a blossoming of wisdom and contentment has entered into my life and one i am thrilled and honored to share with you.

Today i would like to talk about, specifically, the benefits of meditation. I will highlight scientifically proven research, that suggests a vast plethora of physical, psychological and spiritual benefits that can transform our personal, social, and business lives.

For clarity id like to give a brief description of what meditation is. For me, it is commonly known as a sitting practice of mindfulness, which is partly correct; however mindfulness is watching the fluctuations of the mind and detaching from them.. a gateway practice into the deeper revelations that meditation brings. Meditation can be defined as a state of being, free of the mind where awareness becomes aware of itself, as consciousness or we can say meditation is a state of recurrent, conscious-recognition of the state of presence-awareness. This state of being is beyond the thinking mind. The identification with the personality falls away and perception shifts to experiences of unity with All That Is.

Now we may not all understand this or have the deep spiritual aspiration for the truth as i do, yet meditation does not have to be approached in this way. As i will show you, there are so many advantages for us to incorporate meditation into our daily lives, that improve the health of the body and the mind, improve relationships across the board and helps build a more balanced human being that can better serve the Self, family, community and planet as a whole, simply by taking a few minutes of conscious breathing.

In a nutshell, like Free Energy, i feel meditation has the potential to completely shift the course of humanity to one of peace, abundance and global innovation. There are few tools as powerful as stripping the need to survive from the concerns of modern man, the most basic elements for life to flourish, yet the true liberation of suffering can only truly come through the modality of meditation, Self-realization.

Going back in time for a moment, there was an explosion of expression and unity with the counterculture movement, it was during this time that meditation began to penetrate the Western World, thanks in no small part to the mastery of certain yogis like Yogananda and Ramana Maharshi who were so influential in the early 1900’s who seeded these ideas for the coming generations. The Beatles, who were in the height of their popularity during the 60s, had discovered the Oriental practice through Yogi Maharishi Mahesh.. You see, because they were so famous, everything they did caught the attention of the World’s media and all of their adoring fans, including the bands experiences with Transcendental Meditation (T.M). Once George, John Paul and Ringo began to practice this alternative art from India and share their experience, the World began to take more notice of meditation..  and because of this popularity, Transcendental meditation has now had over 200+ published scientific research studies made since the late 60’s, providing substantial results. These studies were showing this technique was reducing stress, boosting learning capabilities and creativity and improves brain function.

Wallace and Benson, who conducted extensive studies observed that the electroencephalogram (EEG) showed an increase in alpha wave activity, indicating greater tranquility of mind. They also observed a decrease in the heart beat and a 20% decrease in oxygen consumption. Several more recent studies have shown T.M. as a method has been clinically used to help alleviate hypertension, drug addiction, alcoholism and smoking, serum cholesterol, bronchial asthma and insomnia, with significant results. It has also been demonstrated that practicing T.M. for 20 minutes in the morning and evening reduces anxiety, decreases incidence of disease and causes the reversal of the aging process!

This is quite something, the evidence that meditation can reverse the aging process.  I have on several occasions experienced the Ayurvedic practice of solitary, in a dark room meditating, which according to this indian holistic tradition is designed to reduce the aging process.. I believe it has something to do with light, or the lack of it, which causes the breaking down of the free radicals, the known catalyst for aging.  Are we missing out on something here? Can meditation really be this potent?

There is also a large body of studies that have been made on many of the other major meditation traditions, including, Zen, Vipassana and Tibetan meditation. In Vipassana meditation, MIT, Harvard and Yale have all reported similar results that show how meditation can actually alter the structure of the brain.

Come again?? Meditation has been proven to alter the structure of the brain.. Wow.

Well, i don’t know about you, clearly i am already sold! Meditation sounds almost too good to be true.. Yet if you are still doubting it potential, let me present a staggering amount of benefits that i can share that will raise many people’s eyebrows, showing something very promising about the role and value of meditation in our lives. Here we go…

 

Physical Benefits of Meditation

*It lowers oxygen consumption

*It decreases respiratory rate

*It lowers pulse rate

*It increases blood flow

*It decreases muscle tension

*It increases serotonin production… Yay!

*It stimulates the production of white blood cells (enhances the immune system)

*It reduces the activity of viruses and bacteria

*It lowers blood pressure – An American Journal review study in 2008 of hypertension researched to see if meditation would lower the blood pressure of patients. They made and reviewed nine studies to see how blood pressure was affected by meditation. In all of the studies people with high blood pressure or high-normal blood pressure, who practiced meditation were able to lower their readings compared to people who didn’t meditate. The average drop was 4.7mm Hg systolic and 3.2 mm Hg diastolic pressure. Lowering blood pressure can lead to reducing likelihood of strokes and heart disease.

*It increases the levels of the sleep hormone melatonin.

*It diminishes stress hormones

It decreases cholesterol levels

*It balances left and right hemisphere brain activity. – neuroscientist Dr Shanida Nataraja’s PHD and postdoctoral research at the neuroscience department of St. Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Baltimore, has proven meditation does  more than clear the mind and lower stress – it can develop the brain so that both halves, the left and right hemispheres can be deployed instead of a general usage of one side depending on the task at hand.. This was shown to improve concentration, memory and decision-making (March 2008)

 

And this is only some of the information to hand on the physical benefits.

What incredible findings, science is finally backing what the sages of India have been saying for the last 2,000years.. The power and transformation of meditation. This practice seems to be abundant in positive effects. Can you see how clearly we can use meditation in our lives.. particularly in today’s society, a World driven by success, based on economic growth, people can easily find themselves stressed out, overworked, underappreciated, whilst trying to keep up with the demands of capitalist materialism. This system, which we are serving, has its workers on their metaphysical knees, working 40+hours a week, keeping up with the Jones’ in a pursuit of the belief that one day they find happiness, through this job or this relationship or that holiday. The vast majority of the Western society, particularly the over 40’s are still working to serve a system that ultimately doesn’t serve them or the best interests of the people of the World. I do not wish to go into detail on this yet i believe the implementation of meditation in businesses and schools, for example, will drastically transform our society. Creating balanced, connected and mature generations of young adults, skilled, vibrate, Healthy and creative workers who become the future bearers of the New Earth. I believe, not before too long, that we will look back on these times of the 19th-20th Centuries as a period of infancy for humanity and only through real change can we reverse the ignorance, immaturity and conditioning that has contaminated the Western World…

 

How do we implement meditation across all nations, cities, organizations, projects, schools and social care?

 

The answers may be found within the known spiritual benefits of practicing meditation, which once cultivated can transform our character becoming truly balanced human beings, that are fulfilled through the experience of life. Recognising that happiness, fearlessness, love and compassion are all qualities of a balanced spiritually mature human being.

We can recognize the positive effects meditation can have on us. Simply to consider positive choices over negative ones, is a good start and i believe meditation naturally cultivates this. Meditation can lead us from simply wanting to improve our health, relationships and creativity to unlocking the mysteries to the biggest questions like Who Am I? Where did i come from? Why am I here?

Whatever your reasoning, the entry point into meditation can only benefit whoever decides to make themselves and the World we leave for future generations, a priority in their lives. For meditation has the capacity to enrich and liberate those of who taste its magic.

For those who employ workers, consider again the sheer number of attributes that can benefit a workforce, that come with a regular meditation practice. Even for 5 minutes a day, it has been shown to help the body coherence, syncing the electrical flow being distributed to and from the heart, building better relationships personally and professionally and stimulating productivity.. Which business doesn’t want that from their company??

Who is your company… Your company is made up of the people that work there, right? Are they Healthy, vibrant beings or Unhealthy, stressed-out, walking timebombs? All business owners can care more for the well-being of their staff, this will dramatically increase the coherence of the team, with the ability to deal with situations with more composure and clarity.. Wow, sounds great doesn’t it?!

It seems so simple to me.. Does this incorporation of meditation need to be pushed that hard for society as a whole recognises its value? Of course yes, yet it baffles me that when this information is so clear and directly calling us to implement in our lives, that still it is not the case. Why is meditation not compulsory in schools and hospitals?

We have the research, we know the benefits.

 

Just imagine, for example, the reduction of money spent on health care, hospitals and nursing homes from us picking up this practice.. It is not quantifiable to be honest, some statistic may suggest “$5,000,000,000” can be saved from a reduction in health related issues yet the overall, physical, psychological and general positive benefits far out-weight the material financial gains. And has also the bonus of reducing costs. We are talking about a prevention of health related issues, increase in well-being, creativity and productivity for everyone who is open to this practice of awareness, for those that see the potential in meditation.

I can give another 20 case studies proving these benefits yet we are ultimately, only responsible for ourselves and whether we do something with this information. You are the only person that can implement these changes, it is you who can be the change that the World is calling to see and it is as simple as meditating.. Meditation can be a massive solution to the problems we face individually and collectively, through meditation we can prevent personal disease of the body, mental health and emotional immaturity and promote physical, psychological and holistic health.

For me, meditation changed my life, it gave me the confidence to follow my dreams, leaving the World i knew behind, uncovering new exciting parts of myself that i simply didn’t know was there.. I have found facing difficult situations has improved and the bounce-back ability which, can be said, is remaining positive and hopeful after difficult moments arise. Through meditation we can find the peace within us, that absorbs all challenges and concerns.

I would like to also offer understanding to those that simply do not resonate with this practice, i recognize the diversity of people and that what resonates with one person  doesn’t mean it works for everyone.. So let’s find alternative ways to create moments, during our days, where we can shut off the thinking mind. Maybe for some people it is a day dreaming of the perfect holiday or maybe a Zen practice like fishing, sewing or reading a imaginative book. For others, it’s free-climbing or base-jumping, where the mind is lost through the immediacy of the present moment, hurling themselves off a 30 story tower building will do it.. I doubt you’ll have those pressing chores come to mind during those moments!. Whatever it is and whatever we resonate with, to recognize the value of mental serenity.. Peace of mind, as they say.

I leave these last words as a lasting impression.. If the people of the World, particularly those in the West can incorporate meditation into their lives, i have no doubt whatsoever of the immediate transformations that would take place.. Imagine every child was to learn meditation and practiced every day for 10-20 minutes.. A proven practice of Self discovery, Self empowerment form the earliest age.

Imagine if every prisoner was to taught meditation whilst incarcerated, the social effects of this approach, creating a environment that can support their well-being and Self-empowerment, in a World that normally puts them down, is a World i want to see, where, with compassion, we empower those that need support, that are looking for a World that loves them. Every single person will be affected by the transformation meditation has, on the people who invest in it. Imagine every business that provided time and space for their employees to meditate. We would see greater harmony between processes, co-workers and even “competition” (i highlight as, when this teachings are recognized, who is the competition, who are you competing against? hahaha). This is the World i choose to live in. A conscious society where spiritual maturity is recognised as a strength and equality is the law.. Out of a social embracing of meditation i believe this can happen and this is why i share this with you today.

Ascension Energies – Mother/Father Separation. April 2018

A short video talking about the recent energies ive been experiencing along side many other lightworkers. The perceived separation from the Mother/Father archetype i feel is paying out very strongly at the moment. In fact im hearing, after i made the video, that there is another energetic Event wave throughout the week between 24th – 1st May. I can agree this week has been very strong. My own turn of events came to a head on Wednesday 25th, having the separation experience, from my children. where i am no longer aloud to see the family.

We must remember to become aware of the mirroring of these events and what they are showing us.. Many of us lightworkers came from “broken” families”, experiencing life early on with this perception of separation.. This is coming up for us know to look at, accept, love and let go of.

It is the end of time and with it the end of the illusion of suffering and separation. Stay strong, for it gets darkest before dawn.
