You Are Not Just a Human – You Are Everything All At Once.

I entered this physical world on September 11, 1979. I have always assumed I was conceived on New Year’s Eve 1978 so, I suppose that is the night I began this journey. It is also the night I began gathering information.

Not a day has gone by without my brain gathering information that I will ultimately carry with me in this experience.

I want to discuss something that I rarely write about — even considering it’s something that I think about daily. The topic I am referring to is God — what is God?

Synchronicities – The Universal Tools of Creativity

What are Synchronicities?

Have you ever given much thought to that question?
Have our definitions to things like this become simplified due to lack of mathematical understanding of the universe?
Maybe it’s nothing more than simple apathy.
Maybe it’s neither, and I am the one that is hallucinating?
I asked this question to a friend a couple of days ago.

The Ultimate Reality – You Are the Entire Cosmos

I am 36 years old.
The Earth has completed 36 rotations around the sun during my physical existence. The ultimate carnival ride, right?

 

As a child, I was continually exposed to Christianity. It started early. If my memory serves me well, I’d say it began at the age of 5 or 6.

On Sundays, my family and I would attend church services. My brother and I attended “Sunday School” at the church before the sermon. I guess the reason for this was to mold our young, innocent minds?
Sunday School was strange. I recall feeling

Following your path is the ultimate adventure. The question I receive from many people, including my own internal dialogue is, “How do you find your path…how do you know when you’re on the right path?”

The more I think about this, the more it makes sense to me. You don’t find it. You work toward it. And at the same time, it finds you. I call this Motivation reproduction sequence. Your path is seeking you as much as you’re seeking it.
The most important aspect of “finding your purpose” isn’t the purpose itself. If you have a dream, the dream is secondary to what truly matters.
What could be more important than my dream? What is more important than finding and pursuing my passion or purpose?

Left Ear Bleacher Seat

Day 9. Here we go.

Have you ever listened to yourself think? What I mean by that is — Have you ever sat quietly and simply observed your thoughts? Without judgement? It can be a tricky thing to do considering how active our brains are.

I’d like you to try it now. If you are in a safe place, it’s reasonably calm and quiet, give it a shot.
It does not require a pose or anything specific. It only requires you, your full attention, and willingness. Closing your eyes is beneficial for obvious reasons but, not necessary.

I want you to sit still. Allow yourself to drift. If you have a thought, accept it. Say hello to it. Thank it for showing up but kindly ask it to leave for a little while and invite it back. One extremely important fact to keep in mind: You’re always going to have thoughts coming in. It’s not possible to turn it off. If you’re in the midst of this exercise and you’re focusing on keeping the thoughts at bay — that is a thought. You’re thinking about keeping your thoughts at bay. The point of this exercise is to simply allow the thoughts to come in, observe them, and watch them leave as another set come in.

Envision yourself sitting in those bleachers above your left ear. You are doing nothing except sitting and watching the thoughts. You have no facial expressions. No tone in your voice. No thoughts about whether you’re doing it right or not. Just sit and watch.

I do this often and I’ve realized, after several months of doing this, that we have far more control over our thoughts than we give ourselves credit for. Accept what you see in there, simply look at your thoughts with no emotional value – no positives and no negatives. You’re observing. After 30 seconds or so, ask the current thought to leave so  the next thought can come in. Envision a trail. I use the ear to ear. When the thoughts are in my mind and I am up on the left ear bleachers – I see an empty space in the middle of my skull (no jokes about that!) and the thought just  hovers there until I tell it to leave.  As it leaves, it leaves slowly. Essentially it’s dragging its feet to the other side of your head. As it leaves, you slightly move your head to the other side and observe the next thought as it enters.

Now, why is this effective and what’s the point?

I will go into detail about that in day 10. It’s an interesting exercise if you do itTAmazing-colorful-bay-sunset-100813623AB99C35 consistently. I will tell you this — Observing your thoughts will relax your entire body. Your muscles will feel loose. It will cure headaches. It will conquer self-doubt. The reason it does those things is the same reason meditation creates complete contentment for people. You will actually see, if your eyes are closed, the basic functions of the universe in your mind as you watch your thoughts. Over time, this is what you’ll see. It’s truly incredible. I will explain in greater depth tomorrow. Until then, stay safe out there. #my500words

A Beautifully Domesticated Ant Hill

The second agreement in The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, is becoming a significant mainstay in my life. The basic idea of this agreement is Don’t Take Anything Personally. I’m feeling compelled to write about this tonight; mainly because the work involved in this agreement has recently become a much steeper hill to navigate.

The Trees are Rising

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you know I have experienced some interesting things in the morning hours recently. It’s happening in cycles. Every 45 days or so. This morning wasn’t as bizarre, but it’s still worthy of mentioning here.

3:03 AM. Awakened to the sounds of a car alarm. Waking up to that sound is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, as soon as the car alarm starts, your dreams sync up perfectly with it. It could be the most off-the-wall thing too. For example, in my dream this morning, I was using my arms to increase the height of trees.

I’ll explain…

The Path and the Quest – Complexity is False Belief

african-eve-1477279I woke up this morning with a clear connection. After a few moments of quiet contemplation, I had a thought. What is my true desire? What is the deeply rooted passion that shines from my spirit?

This question shows up often throughout the course of my life. I am sure you can relate. We all have those thoughts about our life-purpose. We all occasionally think about these things. We’ve all received feedback from others about what we should do with our lives.

Consciousness, Imagination, and the Creation of Reality.

IMG_7644What is this place? Seattle. Washington. West Coast. United States of America. North America. Earth. The Milky Way. Wow. Have you ever stopped for a moment and thought about the amount of energy that is constantly in motion around us? It’s mind-blowing, isn’t it?

Given that, I’ve wondered if the act of creation, with others present, could alter the outcome or if the creative flow of energy you receive is all your own. I question if I am receiving the energy of others that are nearby and with that mixture of wavelengths crossing, it affects my true, personal creative flow. I do feel most at ease when I write in silence.

Writers, artists, painters, dancers, sculptors, musicians, etc. all have this. In fact, I believe even those who aren’t creating have this. We are all creative by nature. We are born into this flesh-covered transportation system with the same tools.
