Being Change

Before doing, there is seeing. Before speaking, there is being.

The world of form, the manifested world of outcomes, is responsive to the distance you travel within your own being. The circumstances you create in and as your world are only temporary patterns. What appears right now, isn't "what is". It is a transient fleeting manifestation. See these appearances differently, think differently about them, and they mirror this inward change.

Nothing is as it appears to be in this instant. For as long as you take what appears to be "just the way things are," you keep the transient manifestation in place. For as long as you take the discourse of the times to be "this is just the way it is," you keep the temporary manifestation in place. You are always the change you bring to the table. You are always the perception you contribute to this time-space reality. If your perception is the same as everyone else, then through whom will change come? Through whom will solutions appear? If you see what everyone else is seeing, then through whom will a new world birth itself?

Think differently. See differently. And you'll be the change you wish to see.

In Love,

hi love!

Every feeling you experience is a build-up of thoughts - you are in the constant company of your thoughts, and because these thoughts go unchecked, the balance of your energy dips and you have those experiences of feeling "low".

So one of the things to do is to make it a daily point to manage your mind-space. Just like you look after your physical needs on a daily basis, it's important to look after your psychic-emotional needs on a daily basis. Take a moment each day, at the beginning and end, to "air" out your head. Write out the junk (I used to call mine the "gunk log") and re-focus your mind in the direction you want it to go. In addition tuning out of the negative thought-currents, you consciously refocus your mind to tune into positive thoughts - thoughts about what you love about your moment, thoughts about what you're happy to have in your life, and so on.

Any negative emotion is never just an emotion, it is indicating to you the balance of your those moments, your body is telling you that there is a build up of negative focus - a build up of thoughts that you physically feel as "low". So these "low" moments are a reminder to tune into your internal environment and do a little bit of cleaning. Ask yourself "what's at the root of this feeling?" "What am I wanting right now that I feel I'm lacking" - take yourself into a space of inquiry and you'll find yourself finding the reason. And if it's difficult to settle the mind in these instances, do some breathing/yoga/meditation etc. to center yourself, to come back into the present moment, from this space of just being in your moment unattached to the energy, you can choose to remain still or consciously directing your attention toward what it is that you do have, what it is that you're grateful for, the possibilities before you, and so on. It's about where you want to go from here, from whatever moment you're finding or looking for relief.

Be gentle with yourself. You can gently lift your self out of any "low" feeling.

Let me know if you want specifics - you know my email ;-)

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 …
