releasing resistance


what is it in us, that of all the wonders placed before us, of all the majesty of this life that readily comes to delight us, we hone in on some tiny spec of dirt and focus upon it and feed it with the power of our sacred attention? why do we twist for negativity? when there is so much to feel blessed about, to joyously soar on high about, to celebrate, how do we come to throw ourselves into the fire of a vision of separateness, of insecurity?

if there are any projections you must release in the moment, you will know. you will feel the dis-ease in yourself. you feel discomfort and constriction only when you are pinching off the flow of peace in your system. this stirring of discomfort, this indication, is the chance for you to ask yourself...what am i seeing right now? and should there be the slightest of constriction in you, you can hold the intention to release whatever mental projection you've cast. you can look in and say...

"I now recognize that whatever and whoever I see as other than the loving Self is a mental projection. I now effortlessly release all mental projections and evaluations of myself, and the people and situations in my life. Only Self exists."

when you see your Self in everything that comes to cross your path, when you hold true to your vision of oneness, then nothing that arises can sway you into the low frequency thoughts of separateness, otherness, fear and its various playmates. you know too much to go and stay there. if you've tasted the relief of unity, of Love, then you readily know when you're in any state of resistance. to put it simply, the state of resistance is what we experience as "negative" emotion. that's the indicator that tells you when your vision is cloudy.

you can not soar like a dove when you're unquestioningly rolling around in the dirt of "you are other than me." in every moment and with your every breath, you must ask...am i coming from love or am i coming from resistance? and to those that come into your presence, you must look and see, are they offering me love or are they asking me for love?

the lightness of Being is a gift onto itself, but you must be consistent in your seeing to experience it in every scene.

living in Love and giving the Love is a choice we make with every breath, in every scene that presents itself. every scene is a chance for us to demonstrate our inner Light. this higher vision takes committment and a vigilance on your part to be true to it. but at any time and in any place, you can choose to rise into the Love present in the world of multiple appearances.

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour
