This blog is all about self help and personal development and what it takes for you to feel better, what it takes for you to have peace, joy and pleasure in your life. As a Master Teacher, I am always amazed at how simple, easy and fast life goes in your favor the moment you learn how to align with life instead of fighting it.
We cover a lot of territory on this blog because everything is interconnected. Transformation touches every area of your life* and the funny thing is you can’t avoid transformation even if you wanted to. So whether it is what’s going on inside you or what’s going on outside of you. Here is where you learn about connecting up with the part of you, you don’t pay much attention to and begin getting what it is you really want.
*Every area of your life includes your personal life, business life, mental, emotional, psychological and your spiritual life. It also includes your physical and financial health as well.
When asked what do you want in this situation, whatever the situation might be? The answers often come down to some sort of fairness. Why fairness? Is it because fairness is often equated with rightness or is it somehow equated with happiness? Is fairness what life is all about? Did the founding fathers of the United States get it wrong? Should it be life, liberty and the pursuit of fairness? Did psychology get it wrong and people really choose between pain and fairness?Continue reading →
(Special note: None of the groups, people or happenings that happened in the following were good/bad, right/wrong, should have/shouldn’t have and neither were the perceptions. They are all simply how Life appeared from here and how it reappeared.)
Recently joined a lot of list on Facebook focusing on the area of non-duality, Oneness, Advaita, and Consciousness looking and expecting to meet much of the same experience of inclusion (how Oneness displays itself) that seems to show up here. The patterns that appeared in those groups at first contact seemed disappointed from both directions, from here and from there. The hope was that there would be seekers who were no longer seekers, more of those who no longer sought because they were no longer there.
Everything is a call to wake up… Especially those things that hold a charge (emotional charge). From relationships to politics and everything in between; it is all a call to who you really are.
The fascinating thing is… is when one awakens no one is there, not even the one supposedly waking up… go figure!
Merrily, merrily,merrily, merrily Life is but a…. neurons firing on a holographic construct. Oh yeah, I meant a dream!
It appears that since there was an expectation of what these groups would be like the awareness of ‘what is’ was missed and only division was seen. Expecting to find people experiencing non-duality or Oneness and instead running into conversations about different forms, words and talk about and very little talk of, the actual experience of Oneness or Non-duality. A lot of references to this person or that person and what they said and little of here is how Oneness showed up here.
Expected, Acted, Disappointed, Peace
The surprise was that in these groups the same patterns of thought, speech and behavior were present that are in all the other Facebook groups out there. The same amount of energetic and emotional charge and defense of positions and as much separation and us vs them and this vs that, without any apparent understanding or acknowledgement of it all being the same thing expressing.
It seems there are some words expressed without much experience, every now and then like non-duality dualing or Oneness dualing or Duality the extension of Oneness, NOthing being everything. And there is even a term ‘diunital consciousness’ that talks about duality being the expression of Oneness and experiencing both at the same time. And yet it is not about the experience of it but the discussion and mental distinctions that can be made around the subject(s).
The remembrance of what life said through a Master Teacher once comes to mind, “understanding is the booby prize.” There appeared to be many stuck in head knowledge and not as much wisdom as had been expected.
And the disappointed feeling was held in the body until the inquiring questions that end suffering and contribute to waking up where asked… After some self-inquiring questions were asked here, humor showed. Where else might ‘seekers’ be found except among those who think they have found. Seeking ends when the energetic sense of self is no more. Then separate and united (i.e. Oneness expressing as duality) can be experienced at the same time and neither hold a charge of ‘better than’ or ‘more important than’.
Honest answers to these questions lead to stillness and silence and a experience of peace that is joyful.
So be assured that every expectation whether positive or negative give you the opportunity to travel the path Expected, Acted, Disappointed, Peace. And even if disappointment isn’t there peace will still tickle you from many sides.
Once you decide to move past the small and limited belief filters of good/bad, right/wrong, the beauty of life really begins to shine and change shows up through curiosity and possibility without any need, must, should, or have to this or that.
Why is there Great Value in using the SUD’s scale, from 0 to 10? SUD stands for Subjective Units of Distress. Because anyone can use it and it meets you where you are and lets you know if you are making progress or not.One of the biggest contributors to stress and anxiety is being unable to measure progress. Whether it be your progress in a situation; another’s progress… be it a loved one, co-worker or a friend.Continue reading →
Reality is the dream of actuality and dreams aren’t real no matter how real they feel. The Meaning Maker does not have to believe anything. However whatever (s)he does believe will become his/her PERCEIVED and FELT reality. Their Made Up Dream! docloves.me/howlifeworks
What if you are both “infinitely big” and “infinitely small” at the same time and you only identified yourself as the middle… “finite”? How much of you might you be missing? And what would happen in your life if you were to triangulate all three positions as your actual identity? Houston Vetter
Dreams take place in your mind, between your two ears. Reality takes place in your mind between your two ears. They both seem so real when the neurons are firing. Which do you hold onto as if it is true … Continue reading →
For your consideration, I ask the above question because most people I know are not content where they are and yet they are not aware of the basic steps to get where they say they want to be.
So the first thing to do is to gain some clarity and to create clarity it is useful to be able to measure the distance or differences between what you say you want and where you find yourself currently. Continue reading →
