The Only Thing to Change is Our Perspective

How Perspective Changes Everything - Liberate your mind

Exploring the Possibilities If we accept that our reality is not literally created by us and therefore we are not ‘co-creators’ or somehow masters of the universe, where does that leave us? Are we bound to accept a fate of hopeless victimization and believing that some just get lucky in this world and some don’t, and we have to either fight for or let go of dreams and life passions? Do we just do what we can and accept that things just don’t work out sometimes and sometimes they do; life is ‘hard’, it takes work, you have to take for yourself, and …

Unconditional Love is Not Passive – It is Fearlessly Resolute

Truth about Unconditional Love - what does it look and act like?

Something that keeps making its way back to me to truly assimilate into wisdom the past few years is the ramifications of unconditional love and how to fully understand what it would look and act like. One teaching in particular that has perpetually baffled me is Jesus’ demonstration of tipping over the tax collectors tables and casting them out of the temple. Another being Krishna’s command for the warrior Arjuna in the Bhagavad-Gita, to fight and kill his ‘enemies’ and extended family. As far as our own lives, I have often wondered when is it appropriate to stand up for ourselves, …

Call to Greatness

Call to Greatness - Life without Limitations

As an elementary teacher, I feel my current service is to inspire and ignite the passion for learning and exploration of the endless, exciting possibilities of life. Yesterday I had an unusually profound day with my students; drawing their attention to the fact that history is being made as we speak, in this very moment choices and potentials for our lives are unfolding and being written in time. As they stared at me captivated and perhaps even mind-blown at the idea that in a hundred or thousand years other people would be studying us just as we were studying those before …

Making Sense of the Holographic Universe

Self-Realization, Making Sense of the Holographic Universe - Surrendering to Radical Truth

With the radical Holographic Universe model of reality being presented to us at this time in humanity’s intellectual and spiritual evolution it is important to find guidance in understanding the vast implications. Just like accepting the world is round, it took humanity a while to adjust to just how life changing such a realization really is. New possibilities and explorative thinking arose that otherwise wasn’t available or even plausible to ponder or consider. Suddenly it was as if humanity literally lived on a different planet, which in most ways it did. And this is to be expected because our beliefs and paradigms for …

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 …

Being Honest with Ourselves

Being Honest with Ourselves

With an understanding of projection let us now explore applications of this new found awareness. Since everything is purely subjective and within us this means that literally we are the only ones who decide how we feel in every moment. This means that all love, happiness, fulfillment, contentment, and satisfaction in life is purely up to us and only us. There is no thing or person who can actually make us happy, feel loved, or right. It is only our own choice. Out of inspiration provided from recent discussions with friends, the following may be useful guidance pertaining to remembering …

Understanding Projection – Others’ Opinions Are Not Personal

Reality is not objective - understanding projection

   In light of the recent discussions regarding the themes of awareness and the ego and its attachments, let us further discuss the concept of projection. Once the ego has formulated its belief systems and established its sense of identification within its energetic theme of consciousness it then perceives all of life with such accepted intentions. This then becomes the source of all opinions, perceptions, values, interests, and ultimate subjective experience of life. However, all of which are relative and only true within the field of awareness from which they are arising in. Meaning, to one theme there are certain values …

Releasing Judgment, Understanding Consequence

Letting go of judgment completely

        In conjunction with the post, God and the illusion of Judgment, I’d like to further elaborate on this misunderstanding given its profound importance in seeking true growth. Furthermore, this concept and notion of judgment is so limiting it is absolutely heartbreaking what it is capable of and it is vital to understand in order to be protected from its negative nature. In my own journey judgment caused endless struggle and suffering and to escape its arrogance/ignorance brought infinite peace and serenity. Because of this freedom it is my pleasure to assist others in enjoying the same …

Identifying and Understanding Ego Attachments

Identifying and understanding attachments and limiting beliefs

In light of the recent redefining of the ego, let us discuss the ego’s proclivities and methods of attachment that are the root of all human suffering. As a reminder, the use of the term ego is referring to our sense of identity that was formed through our identification with beliefs, opinions, thought patterns, context for who and what we think we are, and our overall attachments to ‘me’. All Truth is Relative For starters we must clarify that all truth is relative to the the level of understanding from which it is arising and therefore applicable to. For example, to …

The Many Faces of the Ego

The Faces of the Ego - The many masks of limiting beliefs and identities

With the return to writing the first thing that I’d like to revisit is the concept of the ego in hopes of solidifying a clear, working definition in order to facilitate the greatest comprehension. For starters, this is not the ‘ego’ as outlined in psychoanalysis by Freud and Jung but rather is a more spiritual perspective that is referring to a self-identity, ‘character script’ with its likes, dislikes, attractions and aversions, and attachments all of which we believe is who we are, the ‘me’ and ‘I’. This ego identity is formed within our consciousness and to best understand the ego we must …

God and the Illusion of Need

Washing Away Illusion - God has no needs

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

Insight from Revolver - going beyond the ego and all limitations

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). …
