growth and the Spiritual Path
It's all to
easy for most of us to get caught up and ensnared by the illusorily world of space, time,
name and form. This is especially true when you
spend too much time with those who are caught up in this illusion or maya.
feeling the sacred magic of each fresh and new moment and living fully in the
feeling deeply connected to everyone and thereby experiencing
life as an aspect of yourself.
honoring each person's individuality without experiencing any separation
between you and them.
just a few of the wonderful benefits of a spirit-filled life.
When I write
about being "caught up" I am referring to being identified as a personality
living out a life script (your story) and taking it all so very seriously. Most people
think they are their ego and forget their spiritual essence (unborn self) that existed
before their ego or even this body came into existence. If this describes you,
then what I am writing here may not make much sense to you because you have
little or no personal experiences to relate it to.
also many "spiritual minded folks" who are stung by the bee of spiritual
materialism and go out seeking Saints or holy men with a beard or women with a flowing shawl,
big smile and a bindi (third eye decoration) to get their blessings and cling to. The point is
that some people get so caught up looking outside themselves that they miss seeing the
jewel of enlightenment that is already present
within their own hearts.
enlightened masters have instructed their students to stop their
search and realize that they are what they are seeking. Ego driven pseudo masters
keep their followers enslaved in their personal service. It's wonderful to receive
blessings and get inspiration
from holy people but don't get caught up in trying to imitate them or become attached to
their form. There are many seekers but so few finders.
your journey, it is helpful to take a "time out" from your normal activities and
look deeply at what is really going on within
yourself. This may help you see that there is more to life then what meets the eye
or our mundane senses. There is real freedom, a deep joy and appreciation of life as a
game when you see the "bigger picture". When you are truly available to be fully
present in this moment, an expansion in reality naturally occurs. The awakening of love and pure, radiant
awareness will naturally occur at exactly the right time. At that point, life becomes a
celebration and you graduate to a more inclusive-expansive level of awareness and realize
a greater one-ness with it all.
of the heart is profound and inspired by the Divine which already exists within your
heart. When this potential is activated or awakened, it encourages a more expansive
perspective and integrated wholeness
through divine inspiration and revelation. Then everything becomes fresh and new.
trust in your true essence (unborn self) deepens, eventually you give all of yourself to this and let it have you. At that
point you directly experience that we are all ONE big family and everyone is learning what
they need to awaken to their next stage of development.
Spiritual practices serve to
relax and quiet the mind and turn the focus in the right direction to receive. Just being
quiet and watching (without judgment) the stream of thoughts that arise is a great
starting off place. Praying is also invaluable in that it enhances our receptivity to the
truth. In a short time, you will develop a "higher taste" and be less attracted
to the mundane, materialistic world.
I've been on
the spiritual path for many years and have experienced much through life's lessons and sadhana (spiritual practices).
The more I learned, the more I became aware of how little my intellect actually knew of
the big picture. Many of us need to "lighten up" and relax more and see the
"game or movie" aspect of life. My most
profound awakenings happened quite unexpectedly through trusting and surrendering to divine mercy and
I was given to freely and
likewise I am directed by the living spirit to also share what cannot be fully grasped by our
minds. These matters will not be attractive or of interest to
anyone too attached to the mundane world of maya and sense gratification.
minute, relax and look within yourself and see what you discover. If
you feel or can sense a spark of goodness or warmth within your being then I suggest
you check out the "Spirit" link below and look a little deeper. If you
investigate what is truly going on moment to moment then you naturally begin the timeless journey of self realization.
A journey that eventually brings you back to that "timeless, transcendental
reality" that you only imagined you left.
However, if you have
strong agendas, identification with the little "I" or clinging attachments, then your progress on the path may be delayed. Also being immersed in
unexamined negative childhood programming,
or government misinformation, pseudo gurus or phony religious
leaders can create mental obstacles to overcome and release.
understanding reveals that learning to love ourselves and others unconditionally is what we are here for.
In that same process we also uncover and develop an ongoing and unique, personal
relationship with our Creator.
A good step towards this is to develop compassion towards ourselves and everyone we meet.
There is a boundless joy that arises through selfless giving and conversely
self-absorption and selfishness
leads to a closed heart and general unhappiness.
As you awake
you will become aware of the elaborate "matrix of deception" being propagated on many
levels. Darkness can not exist in the light of truth and certain people in power will not appreciate
anyone rocking their money, power and greed boat. However, it's important NOT to get
too involved in worldly/political matters because it can lead you astray from the real
Selfish, destructive individuals like Hillary Clinton, Comey and the deep state neocons will eventually have to
answer for their deeds. So many injured, killed and tortured needlessly due to
unbridled greed and ignorance of these satanic personalities.
ignorant, foolish and self absorbed
individuals create senseless
suffering and chaos by their behavior. Because our Creator knows we need help here, there are
many empowered individuals with real devotion, divine love and spiritual
potency that powerfully help those in his or her association to awaken from the egoic

Forgiveness, Service, Compassion and Gratitude are key operatives in this most exciting mission.
Do you wish
for a better world with more love and less fear? Do you think it's
possible for man to start treating his fellow man with love and kindness in place of
hatred, killing, bombs and terror? The choices we make now, affect the future of mankind
and the quality of life on this planet. Each one us can and does make a difference.
movie "Matrix" does symbolize what awakening from the illusion is about. It
contains several profound "spiritual gems". Check it out if you haven't seen it
also noticed that things are changing more quickly lately?
Our world is
going through a powerful vibrational acceleration. The World Trade Center incident was
deeply shocking to say the least. Now we must find the most skillful way to bring
those responsible to justice without hurting innocent people.
war and bombing innocent civilians and labeling it as acceptable "collateral
damage" is not a skillful or humane way to bring any criminal to justice. I've read reports that we
already have killed more innocent civilians in Afghanistan then have been killed in the
WTC attack. I hope these statistics are not correct. Also since when does someone become a criminal before they are tried and found
I love this
country and the freedom it stands for however it appears that President Bush
and his gang of lying, arrogant cronies are not acting in the best interests
of the vast majority of the population
It deepens saddens
and also angers me that someone with so much
political power who took an oath to uphold the constitution can abuse the public
trust so outrageously for selfish, materialistic reasons.
have even read documented evidence that the WTC event may have been
planned by our government to get us to give up our constitutional rights and move us
towards a 'One World Government'. I hope these theories are not
correct but with all the lies and spins being released one only can surmise that
a gang of lying, irresponsible politicians have taken over the White House and
it's time for a regime change come the next election.
What happened to the America - the home of the free
and the brave that many of us grew up to love, respect and admire?
As we all
evolve to a higher degree of awareness it's crucial that we learn to tell ourselves and
each other the truth. Those that cheat and don't act with integrity will, like Enron and
World.Com, soon come to a rude awakening and a swift retribution. This also applies to our political leaders who
have been dishonest with us. The amount of dis-information put out by this administration
is truly unfortunate because as more and more people awake, they will be outraged by the
blatant arrogance and self serving lies. This eventually will result in a total loss of
government credibility by a growing number of people. It's natural to feel
outraged when someone who swears an oath, spits on the very Constitution they
swore to uphold.
did stealing Iraq's oil justify going to war and putting American lives at risk?
Or the false flag war in Viet Nam which is responsible for many needless deaths
and suffering. Every day I read about more and more American solders being
killed so that some politician or deep state demon can steal a few more million.
Just how many lies and distortions using fake news to hypnotize innocents to
murder and steal constitute grounds for impeachment?
I have read that
the oil companies have already divided up the "spoils of war" and decided which
oil company gets what oil fields! There also appears to have been a large scale import of
illegal drugs and using the drug monies to prop up our
economy and also make billions for selected people/groups in government. I know it may
sound crazy to some but consider for a moment that there may be some truth to this. To find out more amazing details about this check out Mike
Ruppert excellent informational site: www.copvcia.com .
even a small percentage of what is written there is true we need to remove the
real "evil doer's" as soon as possible. I pray this happens soon before any more
innocent people are hurt by these misguided individuals.
I do have
faith in our check and balance system however we must be very diligent to make sure that
the perceived threat of terrorism is not used to destroy this process. The deep
state cronies appear to be only interested in
the very rich at the expense of the middle class and poor folks. If his faulty, immoral, greed
is not checked by our Congress, our constitutional rights
will soon be flushed down the drain in the name of "terrorism prevention".
The process has already started and it's up to each of us to insist that our
representative start doing their jobs.
Environmentally we are also not doing so well with this current administration. Too many economically
motivated decisions will further damage our fragile eco-systems and we will have less and
less clean air to breath or water to drink. But why should we care when .1% of our
population is making millions off Trump's edwrelaxed pollution standards!
power are powerful motivators for any unenlightened, ego driven
personality. Generally these individuals are self-absorbed and feel isolated and therefore
they are largely insensitive to the suffering
they create by their behavior. They have a new label for sick people with
this type of behavior: dissociative disorder.
unawake people are deceived by politicians who make wonderful speeches and then do the
opposite of what they promise. Please don't mistake political image based posturing as
true compassion or thoughtfulness. Due to their greed for power, blindness and ignorance, many
politicians misuse the power entrusted to them and create needless suffering for
millions that will continue long after they are out of office.
On a personal level, we can also see
that taking responsibility for our creations and not demonizing others empowers us to
create a more positive and proactive mindset. More and more people are
being inspired to begin the rewarding adventure
of personal empowerment, self-discovery and liberation.
As we become more evolved we see that
the "us and them" model is only a superficial view of reality. On a deeper level
it's all "US" and whatever we do to "THEM" we
are actually doing to ourselves. In a living systems approach this interconnection is
logically demonstrated however the transcendental truth goes even beyond our mind's
ability to fully articulate.
You may have received a glimpse of the
magical, sacred one-ness that exists in each moment and want to enjoy staying fully awake. Or, perhaps the things that used
to provide fulfillment are no longer satisfying and you want more out of life. Perhaps you have been in the victim or martyr role and now want to start living with
more joy, love and passion.
Acknowledging your present
reality is the first step to liberation. Observe what thoughts or beliefs cause you to feel judgmental, distant or separate from others.
Watching how you react or respond to situations is very helpful in recognizing and understanding

Learning how to live outside the box opens the door to
I have found
that waking up from the illusion often takes some sort of jolting reality check
experience. Most people continue in their habitual reliance on their conditioning and
belief systems until a deeply profound or shocking event intervenes and wakes them up.
Who we think
we are may not be accurate because our normal senses can only experience a very small
percentage of what is going on. Also we are creatures of habit and therefore we are programmed or at least influenced by out past
experiences. In many ways this serves us since we can drive a car without having to take
driving lessons each time. What doesn't serve us is the tendency to live in past concepts
and not be fully alive and present NOW. The difference between the awakened few and the those fast asleep is
connected to an expanded awareness which includes both past, present and even future
are awake live in the eternal now and realize that the identification with past conditioning is
what supports the false ego. They recognize their uniqueness or individuality without
feeling separate from others. In fact, feelings of separation arise from the conglomeration of thoughts
which is the false ego. Who we really are
can be directly experienced when this
identification with the false ego is fully released. Until that occurs all
techniques, practices and such are just labeled and stored as another belief system in the
false ego's arsenal for self preservation.
of the false ego begins the process of being "born again". Gradually, the light of our radiant inner-awareness shines
we see how our rational intellect is no longer our master. It can, however, be a wonderful
servant when used in limited, appropriate ways.
our conditioning, it's helpful to pay special attention to the situations where you contract your awareness and
feel uncomfortable. When you feel fearful and throw someone out of your heart it is really
a part of yourself that is being externalized and rejected.
in awareness starts the process of releasing your negative conditioning. As you let go and stop
resisting life, you become a more open, loving, liberated, empowered and spiritually awake being.
a vacuum so as you release these old programs, it's important to replace them with
positive, life affirming ones. I have found
it helpful to turn off the
TV and develop interests that expand consciousness and creativity.

I hope what
is shared here gives you more than intellectual knowledge. To do that would reduce this
sharing to just another concept or belief system. I hope it encourages you to do
your own inner work and find the "inner truth" that serves to liberate and
awaken, you may notice that many people are asleep or lost in a programmed state of
awareness. They live life mechanically and may or may not want to wake up right now. However for
those that want to be free, I've shared many ideas to start the ball
rolling. As you work on yourself, you may find that your efforts are helping others wake up
more than being "at choice". It is necessary to have a clear
understanding of what your desires and motivations are. Otherwise you may continue to
run habitual destructive patterns that do not serve you.
True freedom is directly related
to waking up from the illusion of separation and seeing ourselves and the world as it truly is.
As awakening individuals we are beginning to take some responsibility in reducing the
suffering, violence, chaos and pollution in the world.
We have been
entrusted to be guardians of Mother Earth. So far we have not been doing a very good job. However we can make it, if we wake up soon
and start honoring our inter-connectiveness. Our present greed based behavior and economic
systems are causing massive global destruction to our environment. We need to use our unique God given talents to respect the Earth and help make this a better world.
