Anyone who has been on a conscious spiritual path of personal growth and evolution for even a short time knows about the whole concept of surrender. Surrender is in a sense a release of something we are clinging to, usually some resistance around something. It brings change as we move into deeper acceptance.
There is an old metaphysical axiom that states, “whatever we resist will persist.” This addresses the need for surrender. The reason that whatever we resist will persist is quite simple. This occurs because when we resist something we are Continue reading →
In the computer world “GIGO” is an acronym for “garbage in – garbage out” which goes way back to the early days of computing. It means if you input bad data, you cannot expect the computer to give you good data in return. It only processes what it is given.
More recently there has been an expansion on its meaning to “garbage in – gospel out.” This new rendition applies to the growing tendency for people to trust blindly in whatever comes out of computers as if it were the gospel truth all the time. This tendency ignores the original GIGO principle.
The idea of perfection in our world is usually focused on perfecting material form. The idea of perfection for spiritual Mastery sort of has its own version of this focus as well.
Perfection of self being the focus of spiritual Mastery, and herein a lot of attention gets paid to the form of our expression. This is useful and has purpose and can help us quite a bit actually. To learn to be in control of your emotions so you do not blurt or dump them on others in the very least improves our social life. We are social beings and our survival depends on successful social engagement.
Someone says or does something that triggers a difficult feeling for you. You naturally want to then have a conversation with that person and reconcile the matter so you no longer have to experience that difficult feeling.
Communication and working on our relationships is a very good thing to be doing for sure. Yet, there is a very important step we must take BEFORE we approach the other person who triggered our difficult feeling so we can have a conversation with them.
Everyone who has been into metaphysics and spiritual development for awhile knows joy is considered to be one of the higher frequency states of being. It is true too! Being able to make the shift into joy when that is not what you are experiencing is what everyone would like to be able to do consistently.
Even better would be to just be in a state of joy all the time and not have to be concerned with how to shift into it! Being able to make the shift though is the first step. Once we become reasonably successful at making the shift into joy we begin to enter into the state of joy more naturally and continually.
The transforming power of love is a topic which has been spoken to in so many ways for a very long time! However, despite all that has been said if we take but one brief look around it becomes clear that what has been said is not being brought into fruition very well.
When I witness such things I naturally explore that energy more deeply to understand what is really going on there. This particular exploration of mine has been Continue reading →
The universe is comprised of various “domains” of energy. An apt analogy is the internet. Each website has its own “domain” of energy. All the websites on the internet together make up the internet.
Yet, there are other domains of energy larger than all the websites which are part of the internet too. All the technical infrastructure, cables, satellite transmission systems, servers etc are a domain of Continue reading →
Duality is rooted in the dynamic principle whereby there are two polarities of energy expression. Two polarities of energy expression are what the entire manifest universe is based upon! We really cannot get rid of that!
What we refer to as duality—and which we can do something about—is actually a state of imbalance and/or dissonance between the two polarities of energy expression that are involved. Transcending dualistic experience involves Continue reading →
The more we achieve the ability to be aware at ever subtler levels of reality the more power we are able to attain. I am speaking of having power WITH something, not in the sense of having power over something. This is the power of the True-Self!
When we are unaware of various levels of subtle energy and consciousness then we have very little if any power with that energy and consciousness. It just does its own thing and we go for the ride trying to figure it out.
However, if we can achieve a subtler level of awareness that allows us to Continue reading →
