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 …

Ending Unhappiness in Our Lives

Another journal entry that I feel is important to share: Life is full of joy we just have to open our eyes and see it. Too often our perspective is limited, too often our view of things is closed off to greater possibilities. We tend to miss the point and miss the true beauty behind everything by immediately jumping to conclusions/judgments of failure, lack, or error. But there is such amazing light behind and under all things that we can see if we choose to have an open mind and see that everything is unfolding exactly as it should. As …

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 …

We are Not Separate Beings

     I wanted to go over this topic of the illusion of separation again because it’s the most important thing we could learn and really accept. By understanding and accepting this fact it changes how we view every interaction and relationship in our lives. Therefore, to me it seems to be one of the most important things to grasp.     Mystics from all various backgrounds have said that we are definitely more than just our bodies. And in fact from a psychology perspective this makes sense, seeing how the ego mind wants us to think we are limited …

All Love is Within

This is a continuation of journal entries: So the trick is to remember that all we have to do is turn within, all we have to do is be filled with love and joy and everything else will come to us and fall into place. And in fact, the happier and stronger sense of all these radiant, Godly, qualities that we embody the faster things will come to us. Conveniently, thoughts and feelings more aligned with unconditional love and positivity are far more powerful and stronger than thoughts of fear and negativity. So in other words the more in line …

Power of Speech

So I’ve been studying a lot of the Silva Method lately, which is an elaborate mind control method that Jose Silva developed over 30 years of study and experimentation. I was reminded of some awesome concepts and wanted to share it with you in hopes that it’ll help someone as much as it helped me. So first of all, we have to be conscious of what we say, what we say carries a lot of weight and impact in our lives. Our word is our creative power and directs our energy. What most don’t understand is that the inner conscious …

Ego, Contentment, and Creation

So for the next few posts I thought I’d add some of my own discoveries and self work from my journal.  Due to it’s personal natural I have been hesitating in posting some of it. But I was rereading some thoughts in it last night and decided I have to share it with others in hopes that that it may help someone else the way it helped me. So here’s some thoughts I’d like to share from my journey. First off, gratitude is the most important thing to remember. The master is always grateful and at peace. I knew this… …

Have Courage and Accept Your Greatness

It takes a lot of courage to make a change in your life. It takes a lot of courage to be loving instead of acting in fear and reaction. The topic of courage has recently come to my mind as I realize that it takes a lot of courage to stand strong in truth and in what we believe is true happiness and peace of mind. Sometimes I get frustrated because I don’t understand how anyone could not see that their behavior is detrimental to their happiness, relationships, and the planet. But it makes sense when I contemplate the concept …

We are ALL Connected

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while and have been thinking about how I wanted to go about it for months now. I finally decided I will just go for it and try to give it to you in a way that is simple and plain. I could go into the science of this concept and all the evidence and reasoning behind it but first of all, that would take an extreme amount of effort on my part, and second of all, it’s kind of irrelevant if you just understand the concept. This is something that has …

World Peace is Possible

I’d like to start this post off with an amazing speech that was given after learning of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 by Robert Kennedy (click on the title if you’d like to listen to it be delivered, Bobby is an inspiring orator) “Mindless Menace of Violence” “This is a time of shame and sorrow. It is not a day for politics. I have saved this one opportunity, my only event of today, to speak briefly to you about the mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our …

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 …
