The Con of the Senses

World of Choices - Good vs. Evil - All is aligned in perfect balance

“Following after the endless desires of the senses leads to an entrapment of addiction and the bondage of always needing more. Sense cravings can only be temporarily satisfied for varying lengths of time depending on the individual. Yet, inevitably attachments will always convince us we are lacking and thereby make us a slave to their needs.” It is the grandest illusion of the path of selfishness/ego that the senses (desire and attachment) can eventually be satisfied and ever-fulfilled. If I just got that career I would be complete. If I just made x amount of money I would be set. If …

There is Nothing External Imposing Consequences, it is Self-Fulfilling According to Free Will

Which road will you choose to go down, that of righteousness or selfishness

“All are choosing their own destiny of liberated happiness or enslaved misery according to expressing their soul’s desires. There is nothing external imposing consequences, it is self-fulfilling according to free will.” There is no external power or entity for us to blame or project our circumstances on. Our entire reality is a holographic projection from within us that shifts and changes according to our own subconscious beliefs, desires, and perceptions. The world is perfect just as it is and has everything available within it for us to perceive, we are the one’s that label it otherwise and seek to find a …

We Can Perceive a World of Selfishness or Godliness, the Choice is Ours

Ascension into Self-Realization the remembrance of our eternal gift of consciousness

“Some souls are attracted to goodness, abundance, and service while others by fear, scarcity, and selfishness. The attraction is self-imposed and according to each soul being what it is. All align with what they desire.” With the gift of consciousness we can perceive the universe unfolding to us as we see fit. Subsequently, some of us will choose to see scarcity and lack and thus respond with fear and selfishness while others will choose to see abundance and eternity and thus respond with service, joy, and peace. There is no right or wrong here, it is just a matter of perspective and …

We Are Apertures Through Which the Universe Becomes Conscious of Itself

The Universe is Within us - there is no external reality

“We are an aperture through which the universe becomes conscious of itself.” Through the realization that all that is experienced “external” to us is actually just a projection of what is “internal”, we can further realize that the entire universe is therefore becoming conscious of itself as we continue to reveal it through our experiences. We are explorers of the universe and discoverers of Divine Consciousness, revealing and unfolding that which can only become known through us. There is no “out there” out there, no independently existing reality separate from us, it is only through our conscious experience that we evoke the entire …

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 …

Letting Go is the Real “Secret”

Letting go is the real Secret of law of attraction - Letting go is the ultimate power of surrender

“We will never experience the changes we wish to see in our life until we are perfectly okay with them not changing.” With the continuing buzz of talk of the “law of attraction” and other ideologies of “creating our reality” it is important to realize the true meaning of what these teachings are implying. While desires, meditations, mantras, visualizations, and endless ambitions are wonderful and important to feeling passionate about our life, if we attach too much energy into them being “law” then we will most likely end up frustrated and disappointed. The main reason is not because these things …

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 …

The Holographic Universe – Radically Changing Our Beliefs on What is Possible (5/5)

The Holographic Universe - Radically changing our beliefs on what is possible

In this portion of the Holographic Universe series Stephen Davis continues to explore the profound implications of recent scientific findings, especially regarding our perceptions and beliefs. This portion is dedicated to radically changing our beliefs of reality and what we believe is possible for ourselves. The first thirty minutes is demonstrating the point that all of us interpret and see the world differently and so even if we are sharing the same experience we are actually experiencing different worlds. The difference arises from the fact that each of us has different lenses for perception which is composed of our beliefs …

Radical Nonduality – The Divine Self (Part 2/2)

Divine Love - Infinite I of Nonduality - Eternal Self

Infinite Compassion      Soon after these profound realizations came about there then emerged a deep spiritual agony of compassion from realizing all innocent conscious beings that suffer needlessly out of not knowing the Absolute Truth of Reality. For with this profound realization and transcendence of attachment to consciousness/soul and karma one then realizes how all of humanity, and all conscious beings in the universe, are suffering beyond all description because of not knowing their true identity as the Self. Concordantly there was an overwhelming, infinitely profound love for all conscious beings that was beyond all comparison and so long …

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self (Part 2/3)

Self-Realization, Liberation from maya's illusions - dawning of enlightenment

Understanding the Spiritual Ego      The sense and context of self then shifted to a spiritual self that still incorporated the mind but now it was ‘spiritual’. In other words it was the notion of being a human being having a spiritual experience rather than the truth of being a spiritual being having a human experience. At this point however the study of spirituality suddenly held more answers and seemed to be the source of eternal fulfillment and happiness. It became obvious that no matter how tamed and mastered the mind is, it is ultimately still limited and based …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: The Mind and ‘Co-Creation’ (Part 3/3)

Letting go Transcending the mind, ego, and the attachment to control

The following are excerpts taken from The Liberated Lotus: Awakening Eternal Happiness regarding the nature of the mind, transcending the sophisticated intellectual and spiritual ego, and letting go of attachment to ‘co-creation’. How are we to comprehend this idea that the mind is impersonal and not an independent identity reflecting true reality? By realizing that all of the mind’s projections, editorializing, judgments, and sense of being ‘real’ as an independent existing entity are the illusion. Absolutely everything the mind ‘thinks’ is not coming from any personal-self identity but rather from a limited perspective and degree of awareness and is impersonal. …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: The Mind (Part 2/3)

Going Beyond the Mind - Self-Realization - transcending the mind's illusions

Transcending the Mind Seeking enlightenment through the pathway of the mind is extremely challenging due to the mind tending to be incredibly difficult to tame and required absolute concentration and focus above all else. During this time there were months spent in which every day was devoted to pure concentration and observing the mind and its incessant thinking. This was mainly accomplished through persistent meditative contemplation. Contemplation is simply the constant exercising of the spiritual will as the sense of concentrated focus throughout all daily activities. As one focuses completely upon a spiritual truth all learned opposition to it within …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: The Mind (Part 1/3)

Self-Realization - Transcending the Mind's prison

Transcending the Mind Although seeking liberation through the mind or transcendence through the heart/devotion lead to the same Truth, the path of the mind seems to be intellectually arduous and requires deep self-inquiry and constant observation of the mind’s misleading traps. The main obstacle that arises with embarking on the quest of enlightenment through mastery of the mind is the development and investment into the intellect as being valuable and reliable. As the intellect becomes strengthened, logic and reason dominate all aspects of life and the mind and its abilities seem to be the source of all power. However, quite …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: Awakening to Forgiveness, Self-Acceptance, and Courage (Part 1/2)

Awakening to courage and empowerment

Introduction With the final editing process for the book coming to a close, the vision for continuing to serve through this site is really exciting and I’m looking forward to devoting more time to writing here and honoring the thousands of hours I’ve been pouring into the book. I’m currently in Bali, Indonesia as I write and am inspired and eternally grateful to have finished the book here. As a final intuition regarding it yesterday I took out around 80 pages or so that I felt weren’t necessary to include in the book itself but instead to be shared here, which …

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 …
