The Evolution of Compassion

Developing compassion has been on my mind lately and I’d like to take a few moments to share some thoughts that have occurred to me. I hope that they may assist in your own understanding and growth. Respecting the Relativity of Truth We start by understanding a working definition of compassion as something that is developed through a deep understanding of another being’s reality. True compassion can only come from a realization of their truth. In other words compassion can only come from surrender of our personal ego perspective. It is only once we let go of our own ego/belief …

A Perspective on Unconditional Love

Let Go of Right and Wrong     Unconditional love is letting the other be ‘right’ by realizing there in fact is no right or wrong. We do not need to get so attached to a particular position of rightness for it is only our ego attachments that invest in such a vanity of pride such as, only my perspective is correct. Within non-attachment there is a complete reduction in ego inflation and staunch positionality (position of opinion that is taken and then defended out of investment) and it is replaced by only appreciation for all of life. The ‘other’ therefore, is not …

God and the Illusion of Judgment

     Today I’ve decided I would like to discuss further the concept of judgment in relationship not only to ourselves and others but the illusion of it coming from God. This illusion has taken me quite some time to transcend and cleanse from my consciousness and I admit that from time to time I still struggle with it. The unfortunate thing about this illusion is that it is so easy to see everywhere in our interactions with each other today. After pondering this for many weeks, months and perhaps years now, I have finally begun to understand how this …

God and the Illusion of Need

Mankind’s Illusions It has become apparent to me that it is time to discuss the concept of God and the illusions that mankind has created. These illusions are important to understand and notice in order to help heal the wounds they have facilitated. Countless lives have been not only ended in the name of these illusions but also completely controlled, misguided, and mentally imprisoned by them. Countless lives have been spent lost and confused because of these illusions, and it’s time to think about humanity’s inherited belief systems and if they really serve us. The first and main illusion that …

Insight from Revolver: The Formula to Enlightenment

One of my absolute favorite psychology movies showing the relationship of the ego to the Self is in Guy Ritchie’s, Revolver. While the movie is violent and vulgar at times and is based on a classic Guy Ritchie plot of gangsters and con men, the deeper message of enlightenment is astounding and spot on. The movie gives a perfect example of the ego’s interaction in our mind and throughout the film we get to watch the main character, Jake Green (Jason Statham), battle and transcend his ego with the help of his liberators, Avi (Andre Benjamin) and Zack (Vincet Pastore). …

Realization of Perfection

 I had a profound realization the other day that really sunk deep into my consciousness and I wanted to share it in hopes that it might resonate with someone else out there and bring the intense level of peace that it brought me. It is a simple thought that I wrote down and I am grateful I did because it has brought amazing clarity to reflect on. This realization came to me amidst some relationship trouble I was having and I couldn’t seem to figure out where it was coming from. I was trying to trace my thoughts in hopes …

Understanding the Power of the Mind

To begin lets think of some questions from observation of life… Why is one man sad and another man happy? Why is one man joyous, successful, and full of love for life and another man poor and miserable? Why is one man fearful and anxious and another full of faith and confidence? Why does one man have a beautiful, luxurious home while another man lives out a meager existence in a slum? Why is one man a great success and another an abject failure? Why is one speaker outstanding and immensely popular and another mediocre and unpopular? Why is one …

Understanding Personal Growth and the Ego

The ego is the term used by Psychologists and others to describe a process of thinking. It is all thinking that produces three main thoughts, powerlessness, separation, and lack. Which ultimately amounts to fear. Ego thinking is fear. That’s it, it is every thought that gives you some sense of fear no matter how big or small. But with all our advancement and education today there should be no reason to continue this thinking, in fact there never really is/was. This way of thinking is a remnant of our evolution. From a Biblical standpoint it is the way of thinking …

The Concept of the Ego

The first and technically only road block that arises in our path to enlightenment, personal growth, happiness, and fulfillment in our lives is called ego thinking(aka, shadow, “evil”, persona, false self, etc.) The ego is a mindset, a type of thinking, that gives us the thoughts, feelings, and thus circumstances of separateness, fear, powerlessness, and lack in our life. The reason why ego thinking is so important to address, understand, and transcend is because it is the only true barrier to the amazing power that we possess within ourselves. Also it is the only thing stopping us from experiencing endless …
