on the counsel of cleanliness

when you exercise some logic, it’s inevitable that you’ll come to the understanding that just as this universe functions under some precise mathematics and definite principles, so do your life experiences come to pass with the same precision and exactness you see in the way this earth spins, or the heart organ beats, or trees grow, or water falls from the sky.

insecurity, worry, and fear in life are the manifestations of our misunderstanding, the result of our unexamined beliefs. for the laws of this garden, our Eden, are constant and apply to all. and there are definite laws and principles that construct our experiences, just as there are definite mathematics that hold us stuck to this hurdling mass of rock. logically.

they who we've called Masters throughout the ages figured it out. they figured out that they were totally one with life, the vast universe, that meant they moved as life moved and along with it. and as they as they opened themselves up, wisdom flowed to them and through them.

every teaching i’ve mulled over offered me advice along the same line. know your Self. know your mind. all is mind. you are what you think. you reap what you sow. guide your thoughts. examine your concepts.

test the knowledge and you'll find it vaild. clear your mind and you'll find it is a brilliant creative tool, the very tool that constructs all of your experiences. stand still in thought and find that peace is always within. we are not victims of our experiences, nor have we ever been. and not one of us is here to just live on the outer fringes of the creative brilliance that is this universe. because we are so much more than we initially take ourselves to be. flooding our mind with unquestioned concepts, and parroting the teachings and assumptions of others without ourselves testing the knowledge we’re offered is not exercising the curiosity and discriminative faculty we’re each endowed with. exercise your mind.

isn't it fascinating how we take the time to clean our homes and bodies regularly, give our homes makeovers and our bodies just the same, but don't even peak into our mental and emotional homes? we don’t make it a point to check our concepts and belief systems or look at the little pains we’re clinging to. i reckon that one of the greatest things you can do for yourself, is look in-ward daily or at least regularly and see what kind of mental and emotional nonsense you're cluttering yourself up with. this is the kind of house cleaning that actually transforms your life and allows you to experience fully the brilliance that this design and you truly are.

chance has nothing to do with anything in this life. but cleanlinesses at every level of your being does.

it's true. i shower regularly.
