Compassion With Out

The conditioning embedded in the human species is intimately connected to emotional pain. It is like a dysfunctional relationship which operates in relative harmony to keep you trapped in illusion, and this is what makes it so powerful. Like the boogie man, it seems to be lurking around every corner, which promotes fear in ourContinue reading “Compassion With Out”

Separation Anxiety

Life is always here, not somewhere else. The ego would like you to believe otherwise so you can go on chasing your own tail. You don’t have a life, you are life. The original sin is that you believe you are separate from it. There really is no need to struggle, but it is thatContinue reading “Separation Anxiety”

Spiritual Relations

We are all bridges to the source. Since this is so, it is important to bring awareness to all of our relationships. These connections are an extension of our spiritual practice, and are good, honest indications of our progress on the path. They act as a mirror and reflect the way we’ve been treating othersContinue reading “Spiritual Relations”

Be The Doing

Consistency in and of itself is a mantra. It is something said or done over and over to achieve some sort of proficiency. This can take the form of meditation, yoga, work, affirmations, or self talk that guides you to the place where wisdom is born. You can give anything you do or say aContinue reading “Be The Doing”

Light The Fire

When a person begins to awaken they may start to hear certain thoughts which may deter them from going deeper. To them I say, don’t turn away from the light.

Familiarity also has something to do with the attachment to this pain, which is why there’s such a large number of people that stay in badContinue reading “Unknown Known”

Story Of Karma

Our egoic behavior may be supported by friends and family members, so we need to bring awareness in when we tell them our story. One could ask themselves why they are telling it someone else. Hearing it aloud could help you see where the real problem lies. This could be an effective way of bringingContinue reading “Story Of Karma”

Play Your Own Music

Are you the composer of your life or are you the composed? Do you play the music of someone else? If you answered yes to the second question, you are letting your reactions dictate the tempo of your life. Others will make decisions for you whenever you give away that freedom to choose. It mayContinue reading “Play Your Own Music”

The Good, The Bad And The Better

It is when we don’t see something coming that we get hit the hardest. The best evidence for this phenomenon can be seen in a boxing match. For the one they didn’t see was the one that knocked them out. So awareness of self is very important. It will allow you to prepare and seeContinue reading “The Good, The Bad And The Better”

Aha! Moment

Did you ever wonder how or why these moments happen? Where do they come from? Well, they happen in times of mental quietude. They seem to appear out of nowhere. That’s because they need some space to be created. This is why people are stopped in their tracks before and after this spontaneity. You mayContinue reading “Aha! Moment”
