The Power of Habit – A Great Creator or Destroyer

Taking a new path in life through forming new habits and a new destiny

“Habit is the most prominent challenge along the path of realigning our lives with a higher destiny of true happiness. Habit is a powerful seed that can bring forth poisonous creations that continuously mislead us or it can blossom soul-nurturing fruits that guide the way to godliness.” In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna often repeats to Arjuna to beware of the endless temptations and ensnarements of destructive habits. Our habits often run deep into our subconscious and therefore have an overwhelming power over us if we’re not careful and present in the moment to catch their automatic reactive nature. If we are not …

We Are the Product of What We Believe

We are the product of what we believe - liberation or limitation is all according to our own boundaries of belief

“We are the product of what we believe.” This sutra holds within it infinite depth in its efficacy and application if we are adventurous enough to explore it. What we have been told from spirituality and recent discoveries in quantum and theoretical physics is that our reality is actually a holographic experience (dream-like) in which we are perceiving our reality through the filters of our beliefs, judgments, and therefore spectrum for what we believe is possible. According to science and spirituality the Infinite I/Divinity is creating everything and anything for us according to what we are aligning our beliefs and perceptions …

Accepting Responsibility – Remembering Who We Are

Remember Who We Are - Living Without Limitations

With the Transcending the Themes of Consciousness series completed I’d like to share some more pragmatic wisdom with you. Today we’ll elaborate on the power of the mind and accepting the realization that we are creating our life experience in every moment through our perceptions. The biggest key to a truly successful (happy and fulfilled) and abundant life is to take responsibility for every moment and deny all temptations to play victim. Remember, the ego’s favorite tactic for keeping us powerless is dwelling on victimization. Anytime victimization arises or any sense of lack, separation, fear, doubt, or disbelief we must …

Life is Divine Synchronicity

All of life is synchronicity

[Inspired from a paper for my masters program] Everything is Connected If we consider synchronicity to be the intimate connection between our life experiences and the collective unconscious then we will inevitably realize that all of life is ultimately a continuous revelation of synchronicity. Carl Jung offered the world a stunning view into the collective unconscious by doing his best to make the symbolic nature of the unconscious visible to humanity. According to Jung, within the unconscious there are themes, archetypes, and symbols that present themselves to us to guide and align our lives according to that which we resonate …

The Evolution of Compassion

The Evolution of Compassion - Glorious sunset reflection everything is within us

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 …

Past and Future – Remembering What is Real

The illusion of Time - Past and Future - remembering what is real

The Illusion of Time A concept that has finally hit me after months of studying it is: Now is the only moment that is actually real. Everything else is simply a thought stemming from now and thus an illusory mental fabrication. The past and the future only exist within our minds. I’ve read this idea over and over again and it didn’t really sink in until recently. I want to take you through my thoughts on this concept and share with you what I realized in hopes that it might help others understand because I believe once we understand it, it will …

Law of Attraction and Our Vibrations

I would like to discuss the concepts of the Law of Attraction and the vibrational beings that we are and the energetic universe that we are a part of. We have discussed before how we are all connected and how scientists can show this now through fields of study such as quantum physics. With that being said, I’d like to elaborate on our connectivity and discuss how we can use that knowledge for our benefit and for our growth. A great understanding of this is from Ask and It Is Given: “You are, even in your physical expression of flesh, …

Learning to Love Ourselves

Healing from within, learning to love ourselves

  Loving ourselves is the most important aspect of all psychological and physical healing and personal growth. However, remembering/learning to love ourselves can ironically be one of the most difficult things to do in our life. Loving ourselves was intended to be the most natural and easiest thing for us to do and yet our conditioning and culture has taught us otherwise, in fact many believe that it is natural to not love ourselves! Think about how all advertising works, for example, making us feel incomplete and imperfect without whatever it is they’re trying to sell. The consumer culture breeds …

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 …

Realize your Power, Be Joyful!

I’d like to start with a wonderful thought that my girlfriend brought to my attention, “One of the first steps you have to take is allowing yourself to understand the impact your thoughts and thus your created reality. Your thoughts effect not only on ourselves but the society we live in and the planet we live on. Once this is truly understood, you will realize the necessity of a positive loving attitude towards whatever situation you are currently in. Every moment of every day is a chance to turn it all around. Believe in that, for it will make every …
