I'm making it all up

The more you think about any subject, the more you focus upon it, the more you become convinced of its realness. “This is the way it is!” you exclaim.

Anytime you focus on a thought, you draw more thoughts of that same frequency to yourself. So the story gets bigger. The content gets more elaborate. It gets more complex. It starts to seem like you're finding some deep hidden truth. It starts to seem like you're uncovering some hidden secret. But what you're actually doing is creating a truth.

Anything you focus upon, any thought you repeatedly think, becomes encoded in your being. It becomes part of your way of seeing this pool of neutral vibrational information. There are no facts. There are no truths. There are only thoughts you have repeatedly thought. There are only thoughts you've programmed yourself with. There are only thoughts you've tuned into to the point of creating a network of thoughts of like frequencies that you now look through.

How do I know this to be true? I don't. I don't know anything. Take away thought, and I'm left standing naked. Empty. Unknown. This is only the model of reality that I'm creating. These are the thought-frequencies that I'm gathering around myself. Are they real? Are they pointing to a universal truth? Nope. There are no universal truths. Only thoughts each being thinks into a truth. How do I know? I don't.

But I'm having fun telling the story of reality this way!

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…

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

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. 

To honor …
