I was just reading an article in the Star Observer whilst having coffee at one of my favourite coffee spots (Slightly Twisted) that highlighted the progress being made in Victoria. Talking about safe schools and funding to support the local community has triggered my memory of an earlier time when the same things were promised to the aboriginal community, Yet in truth all that they have received is segregation and division. I do hope that the LGBTI keep that in mind as they move forward. Schools need to be safe and inclusive for everyone for us to experience true equality. Not special schools for special folks that just seperates them from the majority to suit political agendas. Now is a time to remember that our choices are creating a new world that will ultimately lead to either more of the same or true change. Who we are should never need explaining or avoiding it should be known so that we can all be aware and secure. We are all in the same world and we all deserve the same respect support and recognition. Just saying!
As we move forward into the 21st Century our souls are demanding more from both life and themselves. We are challenging our perception of ourselves and our worlds and creating new worlds to live in and explore. This leads us to times of change and challenge. However there is something we can do to make the journey easier for ourselves and bring a deeper more integral connection with our souls and life. Mind consciousness is about exploring the mind and how the mind works, physically, mentally and spiritually. Therefore the choices you make now are the ones that will guide your life into the future. This is why it is so hard at the moment to be true to your own self and the things you believe in. However if you decide a life is worth living if I believe in …….. you will find that boundary you just set will define and bring all you need to be just that. That push from the soul to step up is strong right now. You are feeling the pressure, we all are. The key is to remember who you are and what you think is important and make a list or code of honour to live by. This will protect you and guide you as you co-create the new world and raise yourself and others to the return to the soul and its true nature, all loving, all knowing and all giving.
My code of honour is simple, I walk the Trinity. I focus on the energies of Love, Peace and Joy and I try to use them and share them in every thing I do. There are many ways we can look at things and many states that things are, yet each has the gifts of the Trinity to explore and gain from them. Love, Peace and Joy are our souls mission and I have chosen that to be my guide into the 21st Century. When we look deep within our own hearts we discover that this is the truth we seek, we seek to be loved, we seek to be free and we seek to be happy. This Trinity calls to us and every experience we have teaches us more about these energies. I share this with you as a reminder that where you place your attention is where the energy goes. Focus on your truth and you will find it.
As I walk the Trinity I send you Love, I send you Peace and I thank you for being!
The Spirit of Xmas is upon us and as we embrace that crazy time of the year it is important to remember what it is really all about. Xmas has always been a time of bringing together your family and your friends for one big thank you celebration. It is a great time to touch base with those who we deem important in our lives but it also a time in which we count our blessings and notice how well off or not that we are compared to others. These are the thoughts and feelings that follow us through the crazy season and bring us to the deeper connection that Xmas brings for our families and ourselves. This Xmas will be no different yet I have noticed that the focus for many is on the stress and lack that it can bring instead of the family and community they are a part of. Remember where you place your attention is where the energy goes look at this time of the year as an opportunity to give the most important gifts of all your smile, your love and your gratitude.
Giving bring joy to our hearts and reminds others that they are appreciated and loved. Whether you give a gift, your time or food makes no difference, just give freely and let joy be yours. Give what you have to give you do not need to break the bank to give at Xmas, however the more you give the better you will feel and the more you will be acknowledged by those whom you have given to, which is why we all overdo it a little. 🙂
The gift of Xmas is the gift of giving, not the gift given! Remind yourself of that and go enjoy the silly season for what it really is a time to share your gifts with others!
So amazing watching the world shift, change, and people transition from the old energies of compassion and judgement to the new energies of respect and tolerance. I went to a large event today and saw a speaker whom I have admired for a long time. It was interesting to see the first words coming out being both derogatory and defying rather than the expected. As this speaker seemed on a mission, to prove to the audience that he was not the fantasy nice guy, he portrays in the shows he has appeared in. As I was thinking I did not come to hear this, I came to glimpse into the world that you live and world within. It was amusing to hear the next sentence from an audience member, “I have been a fan of yours all my life and really admire your work”.
He stood there stunned and I wondered if like me others were thinking he deserved that. As he continued to speak, he was actually nice when he was not trying to escape that part of himself. I pondered the position he was placing himself in, why be there if you are not a fan of the fantasy you portray? Why do we persist to give of ourselves when we have nothing left to give and how do we claim back our inner truth when we run from our fears? Most importantly, why are we afraid to be nice?
It seems there is a deeper self that hides from the world and whenever it just shines out we want to just stomp it right back down there into the darkest spot we hide it. Respecting the self and the souls journey seems to be what is required when times are crazy. Taking the time to recognise that you have come here for a reason and that all it takes to enjoy the journey is to be yourself. The real self you hide away, when you try to please others or rebel against the world.
When we relax and share our experiences without judging the journey we seem to be a nice guy, even if we think we are not. Perhaps its time to recognise, that we are not our mistakes, our fears or our expectations. We are but a soul journeying through the perceptions of the self and its impact on its own environment.
As I pondered the position, he was placing himself in I could clearly see that respect was his challenge. It seems those of us that need to gain tolerance will have quite a challenge on our hands. Just as those who are seeking to understand, respect will struggle with its truth. This also left me pondering where the line is drawn, when it comes to respect and tolerance, in my own life. More work to be done, it seems.
So nice to know the younger generations are born with one of these gifts and are embracing them right now, bringing balance back to our world.
Are you all over the place mentally at the moment, entertaining random thoughts and tuning into the empathy of others a little too much? Welcome to the 21st Century. Now that the shift from physical consciousness to mind consciousness is done our minds have opened up like a can of worms. Our thoughts are wriggling all over the place and we are all now much more aware and alert mentally. As we relax to sleep we can hear the thoughts of others, this is how it is now, and will effect everyone in one way or another. The key is to shut it down at the end of the day, and learn to pay mind to it through the day. Utilise the tools of distraction and direction to take control of your thinking and bring peace of mind. When we hear someones argument when we are not within earshot it can be a little confusing. We can think it is spirit but we know its not. We can think it is us abusing ourselves, but again we know it not, so we get confused, afraid or just think we are going mad. Mind consciousness reminds us that we are not alone in the universe. It opens our thinking to the Otherworlds and reminds us we are souls not just human beings. Those that suffer from mental health issues are students of mind consciousness. This will be the disease of the 21st Century as we study the mind and how its connects into our spiritual knowing.
Some simple steps to bring a little peace are:
Redirect your thinking away from any thoughts that you do not wish to think. The more focus on other thoughts the quicker your mind will get the message to tune into something else.
Practice being mindful of what you are doing in the present moment, this will allow the mind to bring in thoughts that are relative to the current moment. Making you more aware and intuitive to the situation.
Make a routine at the end of the day that distracts and calms the mind.
Should these techniques fail to bring you peace look at the theme of your thoughts and do some soul searching to bring healing. You may find your mind is working hard to bring resolution to those things you are trying to avoid thinking about.
The mind is capable of many wondrous things explore intuition, imagination and creativity to develop the powers of your mind. One final note on the journey into mind consciousness if you are mentally screaming at yourself or others right now please whisper instead, we can hear you.
Change is something that must happen on the inside. No matter how much we rage against the machine true change can only come from those bold enough to work within the old to create the new. As we fight with the inner conflict that a journey into peace creates it is important to have some healthy boundaries about what is necessary and what must end now. Therefore it is also important to know where you stand with yourself and others. Having a code of honour to live by enables us to define who we want to be and how we want to approach things however it is also important to factor our own humanity into the equation. Take the time to ponder your needs and then think about how life would be if you were without all that you have right now. Could you live on the street? Could your mother, father or siblings? Could you go hungry? Could you walk right past while someone else is in trouble? Then place yourself there in the role of that person in trouble how would you react if they just walked right past without helping you? Make a note of your own nature some have the strength to cope with anything others do not, as it should be we must remember to be observant and respect the meek as well as the strong. The meek are often working on other levels of consciousness that can only be appreciated if we take the time to observe their experiences with an open heart and mind. Knowing what we can and will tolerate and what we will not enables us to redefine our own needs and desires and co-create something better for ourselves and others. Life is intolerable sometimes and becoming intolerable yourself just creates more pain for you and those that care about you. Take a moment to reflect on the thought that perhaps your soul chose your family, your friends and the world you have been born into. Then reflect on why. This will remind you that the world is cycling just as we do and that this is a time of release and renewal. Relax, respect and be tolerant, true change is on its way, be part of the solution no the problem.
No time for complacency – No time at all…
As we observe the voices of humanity rise and call for changes it is time for us all to ponder how that change will fit into our vision of the world and our future goals. Looking at the current polices our governments have and the mindset of our religious communities and business communities, it seems it may be time to step up and demand a little swifter action or prepare for their future world.
As I pondered this recently in my meditation, I was truly saddened at the thought of a world with nuclear power stations and religious war ravaging our planet and her children. Taking into context the state of Fukushima and the contamination that has already occurred in our oceans from testing and disasters it seems that the ostriches run the world and the rest of us are preparing to mutate.
Therefore, what can we do when our voices are ignored?, get a little louder and fight to the death? I wonder if that is what they want us to do, a little culling and all. Well perhaps it needs to be more personal than that. Perhaps it is time to dig a little deeper and pull together without those communities that seem to drive us into separate corners.
Perhaps its time to get together with your family and friends once a week, share your resources and create some new customs like love thy neighbour day and equality sit-ins discussing ways to create fairer opportunities and systems for our children’s safety. Share your skills and treat your family and friends to your wonderful talents whether they are cooking, building or art. Do what they cannot and get them to do what you cannot. Not only will you save money and resources but your will foster good will and unity in a world that is facing division and despair.
Spread that support out to your local community centres, do the same share your services, and ask them to do the same. Practise equality, unity and spread the joy. Take note when you hear someone sprouting the old world divide and conquer mentalities, gently question their thinking. Most of us never get further than the first concept of a situation and good lively discussion without blame will usually prompt us to review our thinking. If not, do not despair, their issue not yours, remind yourself of that and let them be, at least you know where they stand. The time will come when they will need to review it again anyway, time gets us all in the end.
Start planning for those big challenges that are sure to arise in the future, including coal smog and water pollution which will be challenges for us in Australia and nuclear pollution which will be a problem for us all globally soon enough. Teach your children Tolerance and remind them that disability is purely a soul exploring physical form in another way, it may be more common in the future. Teach them how to purify their water, distil it or any other fandangle idea you may have to make the water drinkable and accessible. Already there are many amazing designs that are utilizing water recycling into the home design and storing resources underground. Put your heads together and design how you would like it to be. A well-planned family network can be global or local and have just as much to share and give. You can save a bundle on accommodation when you are travelling. 😉
Finally if you are a part of the system that is so in trouble right now, wether you be banker, oil barren, religious leader or politician, please know that it not you that is the issue it is the old systems that are failing us all. Be brave make changes and demand respect and tolerance from all concerned. Also, try to think and act a little faster if you please, as we are all nervous about the next big thing looming on the horizon of life.
