So today I want to talk a little bit about how we can make the best choices for our life. In order to make good sound decisions, we need to become balanced and see and act from a place of presence. As I have mentioned many times on my channel most people have their center of gravity in either their intellect, their emotions, or their bodies.

If you make decisions while solely being identified with only one of your centers you will only be acting with a third of your potential. Each center possesses its own unique form of intelligence. In order to make good sound decisions, we need to be able to access all the information that is available to us. When we learn to become more balanced in our thinking, feeling, and sensing, our centers will then be able to work efficiently and communicate with each other. They can work as an integrated and harmonious whole as a result of our self-development work.

Throughout life we have people who can come into and are a part of our lives, then due to various circumstances are out of our life. We really need to appreciate all the people who come into our lives for however long it may be. We need to make an effort to restore, renew, revive. reclaim, and redeem our relationships.

In life relationships are everything. And now in our modern day life loneliness and lack of meaningful relationships are an epidemic for so many. People’s lives are literally being cut short.

Today's topic is on Effort. Specifically, the importance of effort on our self-development journey. When we have ceased to make efforts, we can say that we are now psychologically asleep and drifting through life. Although it may seem that we are not drifting because we are being active in the world, but we are so identified, so immersed in worldly pursuits that we forget everything relating to our inner journey.

Our inner journey depends on conscious effort, it depends on us constantly remembering our work and the aim we have created for ourselves. We must constantly remember why we have even embarked on our self-development journey in the first place.

Today's quote of the day is by Norman Vincent Peale.

The quote is “Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.”

Today I want to take a few minutes to talk about the importance of learning to drop from your headspace, from our conscious thinking mind, into our heart space. Getting in tune with our inner knowing, the wisdom of the heart.

In today’s society thought, has become all important, we have become too head oriented. Most people derive their entire sense of self from their thinking, from the little voice in their heads.

The problem with this is that thought is essentially just conditioned memory. In time life seems duller, we zap the aliveness out of life because we are seeing the world through the filters of the past.

Following your heart and intuition. Check out my self-development articles at: http://freedomfromtheknown.com

We're going to talk about about how in order to transform the world we need to transform the individual, for the individual is what truly exists. Society is a mental construct, show me this thing we call society?

To transform oneself requires self-knowledge. Without knowing what we really are, there won’t be any foundation for clear thinking, without knowing who you are there cannot be any meaningful transformation.

#selfrealization #selfdevelopment #enlightenment #conciousness #spirituality #nonduality
Today's quote is “I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.”

Most people understand that unless you love yourself, you cannot really love anyone else. If we don’t have a loving relationship with our very own self, we will project any of our own weaknesses unto the other person and end up sabotaging and limiting our relationship with another.

It seems basic, that we should learn to love our own selves and on the surface many people believe or think they love themselves but their behavior will show otherwise. And what most people call love is a superficial identification with a conceptual “me” which just makes us more egoistic and separate from others. We can be sure that Donald Trump is in love with Donald Trump.

So what keeps us from loving ourselves? The short answer is ignorance. We simply don’t have a deep and proper understanding of who or what we are. We only know who we think we are. Thought is memory, and our memories are conditioned through our experiences with life. Our identity becomes an object to us. We then derive our sense of identity from our thinking conscious mind. But who are really are is the silent subject of all experiencing, that from which thought arises, the space like awareness from which all the content of the mind arises.

We get caught up and lost in the minds content losing sight of the subject.

If you are someone who has embarked on a journey of self-knowledge, of self-development and have found yourself to stop making any efforts in relation to your higher aim, we can say that you are now drifting in life.

You have fallen asleep at the wheel, your mechanical tendencies have you under their spell, and as a result, you have forgotten all about your inner work.

Being asleep, we are said to be drifting because we live a reactionary life. We are led this way and that way by the situations and circumstances we encounter in life.

Our journey on the progressive path towards self-realization depends on effort, and not just any effort, but effort of a special kind.

Effort of the general kind is mechanical in nature. This kind of effort is what life makes us do. If it rains we need to pull out an umbrella, this is what I mean by mechanical effort. Through these general efforts, we adapt to life.

Conscious effort means effort that is not necessary and required by life. Life does not cause it or is the source of it.

In order to have this higher point of view, we need to learn to recognize and become established in our thought-free awareness. Much like the King in our story, being established in our presence is like we are at the peak of a mountain.

From this vantage point, we look down and can see everything below us. We can see our thoughts, emotions, feelings, running around bumping into each other causing all sorts of problems. Being above them we remain unaffected.

Also as our understanding of our inner landscape becomes more refined we are then able to communicate a higher wisdom to our friends below. We can help them also reach the peak in a harmonious fashion.

From pure awareness, we have the clarity to see things as they are.

Today our topic is on how we can use sleep to help us realize our true nature. On my channel, you always hear me talking about being present, being aware, being conscious, etc.

Learning to let go of all that is false in order to discover what we really are.

The problem for most of us is that we are too identified with our thoughts, emotions, bodies and invested into a conceptual story we call “me” that we miss that obviousness of the basic nature of reality.

Many spiritual practices aimed at helping us quiet our minds so that we may eventually clearly see what we really are. The timeless presence or global awareness that is the background to all our experiences. It is the only constant which all apparent objects both physical and subtle rise and subside within this invisible presence.

So here we can take advantage of the sleeping process to get better acquainted with our true nature.

Today I want to talk about bringing more original and new ideas into the world. Here we want to quiet and go beyond the purely associative part of our thinking. We want to simply contact our inner stillness and just be open to anything that emerges. If you really learn to be inwardly still and go deeply into it, you will be in a position where an unknown dimension can come into being. You can call it an epiphany, intuition, divine inspiration. Whatever you like. The important thing is that it’s not coming from our associations, but from the deepest part of our being, of our consciousness, which is outside of time. So by being outside of time, it is not coming from memory.

Humans are highly impressionable beings, what happens to most of us is that as we get older we become increasingly conditioned in our minds, emotions, and bodies.

As they say, people get set in their ways. Not only do people have a hard time in changing themselves at the personal level, but also the way in which they perceive the external world becomes very narrow and stale.

Anxiety and fear keep us on a very narrow path. These limitations are an invisible prison that many of us are unconscious too. It becomes part of our identity, therefore, we no longer see it or question it, although we sense something is quite right.

This is where we need to be able to clearly see if anxiety and fear are a major problem in our life.

In order to start heading in a new direction we need to identify how fear and anxiety have limited us. We need to see that we in our prison, the kind of prison it is, in order to plan our escape.

Today our topic is on finding and appreciating balance. As the quote says happiness would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

The problem is that as we go through life and we have a few amazing experiences, we then seek to only want and to maintain only good feeling states and avoid what we would label as bad experiences. We live in a world of seeming duality, of contrast, without the other side we wouldn’t be able to evaluate and appreciate each experience for what it is. If we only had blissful experiences soon we would take them for granted and would become dull.

We need to learn to see and appreciate the immense diversity of our world. We need to learn to become balanced in mind, body, and heart.

To be balanced we need to learn to entertain and hold the opposites in our mind. Many people tend to only think in terms of black or white. They become fixed in their ways of thinking, doing, and being. We then become unbalanced, topsy-turvy.

Society is artificial, we slowly get conditioned into having many faces. To be yourself in society can cause you great inconveniences, hence why almost no one ever shows who they really are. Many of us don’t even know who we are anymore, we just think we do.

The word persona is a very significant word, it is a Latin word meaning mask. This is where the word personality originated from, our personalities are the masks we use to participate in society.

“Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly; devils fall because of their gravity..” - G.K. Chesterton

I think we have all heard the expression that sometimes people feel like they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Physically you can also see it.

For many of us regardless of our physical weight, in our inner space, we feel obese. We are weighed down by our thoughts, emotions, feelings, our addictions, our past, our expectations of the future

Today's topic is on understanding the wrong work of our bodies centers, that being our intellectual, emotional, and the instinctive/moving centers.

In a recent video (link below) we talked about the importance of observing and really knowing your centers because doing so gives us a lot of self-knowledge. By properly observing our centers we can determine how conscious we are being in the moment, we can see if our centers are doing their appropriate work and the quality of energy they are using by understanding the different levels of our attention in relation to our centers. We also went into how our centers can be further subdivided into their own intellectual, emotional, and instinctive moving parts along with each center having a positive and negative half.

Today I want you to take the time to think about someone who you really dislike, nay, someone who you may even despise.

What is it that irritates you most about them? Is it that they are inconsiderate? That they don’t listen? Or maybe that they are overly narcissistic?

What if I told you that it is entirely possible to even learn to like these people and that it’s actually in your best interest to do so. Don’t believe me? Well, if you give me a few minutes of your time and if you make you a sincere effort you will see why other people, especially ones that irritate you, hold the key to an immense understanding of yourself and the world.

Journaling tips for beginners: Journaling can be a great way of freely putting your thoughts, feelings, ideas on paper to be able to look at and explore them in a deeper way. And as our quote above highlights, writing can be a way of relieving inner pressure. It can be a cathartic exercise.

Journaling consistently can also help us tap into our inner creativity which can be a source of potential problem-solving in our day to day lives.

Through journaling, we will also increase our own self-awareness and as we reflect on our day we will start to notice and get to know our thoughts and feelings on a very intimate level.

Our mechanical addictions keep us locked in place. Take a good look, what little compulsions and drives have power over you, by you not being able to live without them.

We can start by looking at everyday things like our daily coffee, video games, social media, or gossip at the office. Is it a harmless indulgence or is it now running your life?

It gets harder to see with things like our psychological suffering. We may not look at them like addictions, but how many people do you know that if they gave up their suffering would be a completely new person?

“We must give up many things to which we are addicted, considering them to be good. Otherwise, courage will vanish, which should continually test itself. Greatness of the soul will be lost, which can’t stand out unless it disdains as petty what the mob regards as most miserable.” - Seneca

In modern psychology, they refer to the three dimensions of the mind as being the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious. From Yoga and Vedanta, they are known as the gross, subtle, and causal dimensions of the human personality.

These three aspects are then subdivided into the five koshas or bodies that go from the grossest to the most subtle dimensions of existence. Kosha is a Sanskrit word that means sheath, you can think of it as a layer of an onion.

Many spiritual traditions identify and classify our subtle bodies although there will be some variance among them. Today will just be just a short introduction into the five Koshas.

The five koshas correspond to the psychological, physiological, and different levels of awareness.

We always hear how important it is to be present, to live in the moment. In order for us to become more conscious and aware, we need to realize just how unconscious we may be currently living. We need to realize our lack of presence. So, just how present are we in our lives?

Today I want to share a little useful exercise that help you determine just how present you are to the present moment and the level of awareness that you possess. Having this baseline can help you realize many things and can provide a shock of motivation when you realize your degree of awareness.

Everyone is at a different stage in their development, but were all on our own journey from lower to higher, from ignorance to wisdom.

It is a journey of discarding all that is false and discovering what is true, the source of our very own beingness.

We all have different starting points, we all resonate with different ideas and teachings, but anything that helps us to move our center of gravity from the external to the internal is useful on our journey to awakening our connection to the source of all that is.

On our self-development journey, our goal is to become fully human, which means to become balanced in all our various functions. Right now most of us are unbalanced in various degrees.

You can think of our centers as each being a different kind of mind. We have an intellectual, emotional, and instinctive mind.

Each mind was designed for a different purpose and use. And since most of us never got a proper education on our highly complex and delicate machine, we don’t know it’s intricate workings and therefore use them wrongly.

You can break down attention into three types.

Is zero attention, which represents the mechanical divisions.
Is attention that does not require effort, this is fascinated attention, and it is attracted and held by an external object.
The third is directed attention that requires effort and will to maintain.

Today our topic is on creating opportunities for our life. Let’s take a few minutes now to see how we can create more opportunities to live a happy conscious life.

From an esoteric point of view, we learn that if you are living life from personality, the most exterior aspect of you, then you will be living according to the law of accident. Things just happen.

When you are in tune and in touch with your inner self, when you know who you are at a deep level then you will be living according to the law of fate. Under the law of fate, you will attract circumstances that are perfect for your growth and which will bring out your own unique abilities and talents.

Living from your inner self you will be fulfilling your destiny and will attract appropriate opportunities.

“Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work” - Thomas Edison
