Part of anyone’s personal development will be getting to know yourself and learning to tap into your intuition. At the beginning of that endeavor this can be a not so easy challenge to sort out “what really is intuition and what is all the other ‘crap'”?

Intuition versus Conditioning

Conditioning

To shed a bit more light on what’s driving you we need to understand conditioning. The way you are today, the way you think and behave is the result of your conditioning, your upbringing and your education. The sentences you heard from you parents, all well meant and intended, will have left a mark on your unconscious mind. Some of those statements have become guiding principles, like the policies of a company that are stored somewhere in the archive cupboard.

Years later, in present time, you are still running your ship with guiding principles and policies that might have been useful at an earlier time, but are outdated now. The crux of the situation is that they don’t update themselves, they quietly influence your everyday thinking, emoting and behaving. It’s time to clear out that archive cupboard and throw out those not really useful beliefs!

Overcoming our limitations

The Spiritual Journey (the path of self discovery, self knowledge and self improvement) is a marathon, not a sprint, and there will be big challenges on the journey. The challenges will not all be ones that we are capable of meeting on the first occasion. If we cannot rise to the challenge, then we will regress in our ability, and may need to start again.

Do you have the courage to start again and again?

The great thing about self-knowledge is that once you have it, you have it.

Consciousness

This is a very cool original animation by Louis Lefebvre which chronicles the evolution of Consciousness from its inanimate state into human form and then back through spiritual seeking to Oneness. Its inspiration is the spiritual teaching of Wayne Liquorman and Ramesh S. Balsekar.

Consciousness about Judgment

September 15, 2009 at 9:36 am | Posted in inspiration/humour, spirituality | Leave a comment

... the nature of life ...

... the nature of life ...

All judgment reveals itself

to be self-judgment in the end,

and when this is understood

a larger comprehension

of nature of life takes its place.

What If… today was your last day?

There has been a song on the radio recently called ‘If today was your last day’ sung by Nickelback which makes me really think: What if today was my last day?

There have been a few deaths of people I knew, friends of people I know… and as sad as it might be it allows serves me as a reminder to live every moment fully.

What would you do, if today was your last day? Continue Reading What If… today was your last day?…

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

~

We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked.

That is the power of Gratitude.

Love is Everything

Love is Everything

Love is Everything

Love is everything. Acceptance is a big part of love. Accepting yourself and accepting others is a huge step in loving yourself, and loving others. Each of us is here for a reason. That is why people think and act so differently as there are more reasons for being here than there are people.

Try and accept what people do and say without any form of judgment. Rather ask yourself what lesson you might learn from them in what they are doing or saying. Just this step alone will bring so much peace into your life. It will also bring acceptance of you, and respect for you.

Love is everything. It is everywhere. Be still and you will always find it and it will envelop you.

Awakening

July 16, 2009 at 4:58 pm | Posted in self development/motivation, spirituality | Leave a comment

Awakening is a shift in consciousness in which thinking and awareness separate. For most people it is not an event but a process they undergo. Even those rare being who experience a sudden, dramatic, and seemingly irreversible awakening will still go through a process in which the new state of consciousness gradually flows into and transforms everything they do and so becomes integrated into their lives.

We Are Awakening...

We Are Awakening...

Instead of being lost in your thinking, when you are awake you recognize yourself as the awareness behind it. Thinking then ceases to be a self-serving autonomous activity that takes possession of you and runs your life. Awareness takes over from thinking. Instead of being in charge of your life, thinking becomes the servant of awareness. Awareness is conscious connection with universal intelligence. Another word for it is Presence: consciousness without thought.

The initiation of the awakening process is an act of grace. You cannot make it happen nor can you prepare yourself for it or accumulate credits toward it. There isn’t a tidy sequence of logical steps that leads toward it, although the mind would love that. You don’t have to become worthy first. I may come to the sinner before it comes to the saint.

There is nothing you can DO about awakening. Whatever you do will be the ego trying to add awakening or enlightenment to itself as a prized possession and thereby making itself more important and bigger.
