Radical Nonduality – The Divine Self (Part 1/2)

Self-Realization - The Divine Self of Nonduality

[It must be noted that the contextual awareness’ being described throughout are not literal, the words are irrelevant, they are only attempting to point to that which is entirely subjective, wordless, and completely indescribable. All attempts at wording that which is wordless is obviously meager as a substitute. Yet it may be helpful to offer inspiration for one to realize such radical truth for one self.] Ineffable Remembrance of Union     The overwhelming bliss at the initial experience of ‘returning home’ arises through truly discovering the fallacy of duality and personal control of the body/mind. This realization leads to …

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self (Part 1/3)

Liberation from maya's illusions of duality, Self-Realization

Waking Up Within the radical realization of ‘enlightenment’ the gift of consciousness is realized to be a part of an indescribable nonduality of Divinity that is truly ineffable and indescribable. Its stunning obviousness yet utter profound nature is all encompassing of one’s sense of reality and therefore the entire perspective and context of existence is forever changed. The realization of the true Self is infinitely formless and eternal as that which is all-present, all-knowing, all-powerful and the Creator and Source of All That Is (All that is Conscious). This Creator we are not separate from, hence the Father and I …

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: Awakening to the Salvation of Unconditional Love (Part 3/3)

The peace and joy of salvation - returning to our natural state of unconditional love

Salvation is Unconditional Love Unconditional love is the level of salvation, which is the freedom of being completely forgiven and liberated from all negativity/ignorance/’sin’, and its energy field is truly Heaven within. There is nothing that can possibly affect us and all is seen with an equal eye. Everything is lovable and everything is seen as divinely perfect, there is no guilt ever possible again. There can be no more resistance, all is forgiven, all is accepted, all is finally understood as the projection of Self. (Recall, how we perceive the world is only a projection of our self-perception) The …

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 …

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 …

Insight from Fight Club

Insight from Fight Club - transcending the shadow ego

    In light of the review of Revolver I’ve decided to review one of my other favorite psychological movies/books that has always intrigued me and that is Fight Club. Fight Club taught me to think for myself and challenge social norms that might not be in our best interest and to therefore transcend ego limitations.  (This review will be based off the film since I don’t have the book with me at this time)    The movie is focused around Robert Norton’s character ‘the narrator’ or ‘Jack’ going through continual life crisis situations to be liberated of all ego …

Imagine a World of Peace

Lately I’ve really been appreciating John Lennon’s genius in his lyrics in his later musical career. The song imagine is one of my absolute favorites that outlines some amazing truths to creating a world of peace. And how it’s easy if we try! Imagine there’s no Heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace You may say that I’m a …

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 …
