“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” ~Martin Luther King
 
Do you want to experience a profound state of peace and bliss? Then learn what it takes for you to continuously choose love over fear.
 
What is love? The experience of love is what opens you, softens you, makes you smile, laugh and feel a light playful innocence inside. It is the most patient, healing, expansive and calming sensation you’ll find in the Universe!
 
The experience of fear is exactly the opposite. It comes from a need to overly control yourself, your mind, a situation or another person. Fear is a lack of trust, which makes you feel contracted, small, powerless, judgmental, and very serious about everything in your life.
 
If you are unsure whether you’re in a state of love or fear, pay close attention to the sensations in your chest and heart area. If your chest feels as if you are embarking upon a 3 month Hawaiian vacation somewhere in there, you’re coming from a place of love.
 
To know how truly divine the experience of love is, we need to experience and understand fear.
 
Fear is a time bound experience that only enters your body when your mind becomes too attached to certain thoughts, needs and desires that it believes you must have in order to be happy.
 
Fear is always coming from a demanding energy that is mixed with a state of “panic”. It is not living in a feeling of timelessness or has an infinite quality to it. Fear believes that if this one need/desire does not manifest then everything will crumble.
 
When you learn how to have no attachment to any want, need or desire, then fear simply cannot enter your body or mind.
 
The more you discover how to live your life from a relaxed easy timeless place that is resting deeply in your heart, the less fear you’ll attract along your journey.
 
You can become fearless and unstoppable, unshakeable like a mountain by befriending what you fear.
 
Whatever it is you fear is not what you think it is. When you meet and greet your fear with love, you will feel fully protected by life, always taken care of, just as you did when you were a brand new innocent baby, who was emanating pure love.
 
It is from a deep trust in life that is resting in the heart, allowing life’s magical unfolding process to play itself out that you discover a home in your heart that is always free from fear.
 
This fearless heart is what ignites a torch to bring light into the deepest darkness and mystery of your mind.
 
The greatest secret to defeating fear is quite simple, yet it takes precise awareness and consistent practice. The main rule here is never to resist that which you fear.
 
Never avoid fear, nor give it any non-loving attention. Always meet it consciously with gentleness and patience.
 
Fear has come into your life to propel and encourage you to become a brighter more amazing light being!
 
Fear is a teacher who is pushing your soul further into a state that’s exuding tremendous happiness, so you are perpetually beaming with life!
 
Fear is the fertilizer that boosts the exponential growth of your soul so you actually fulfill your soul’s mission here. Once you learn how to place a “welcome mat” out what you fear, you’ll find fear is nothing to be afraid of anymore.
 
Below are 3 powerful steps to help you move your life beyond the trap of fear and directly into love.
 
1. Allow fear to show itself in your physical body.
 
Fear may form as a subtle tension in your chest, stomach or even as a persistent migraine headache. If this feeling could talk, what would it say?
 
Notice where it is coming from, without judging or analyzing it. The experience of allowing for it to be here is giving it love
 
Allow your sensations of fear to be as deep and painful as they need to be. Be with the story of whatever it believes is real, yet know its just some imagined story and not the bigger picture.
 
Fear is always love in disguise, playing the role of a contracted needy controlling helpless suffering thought form. Your job is to allow this lost love to come home and be found!
 
Treat fear like a homeless puppy who needs your love! Allow it to be cuddled, felt, heard and given whatever loving heart energy you can give it. Let it squeal, moan, whine if it needs to, just give it all the loving attention it truly needs.
 
If it starts to bark or growl, don’t react to it, just listen to what’s beneath its cry. If your fear gets too big to handle, practice sitting back from it, as if you’re watching it from the last row of a huge audience. Let it play out its fanatical role on stage. Try to see the grand Universal stage on which your life is being played.
 
Notice why you might have manifested this specific fear in your life, what its teaching you to become, and how it is essential for your soul’s journey into deep healing.
 
2. Focus on the space that is around the fear.
 
Don’t dwell on your fear by trying to change or fix the fearful thought/feeling itself. Bring your attention to the spacious quality and the actual “space” that surrounds the fear, which is also allowing it to exist.
 
Giving fear plenty of space and time is giving it love, and the secret to defeating it.
 
The energy of “fixing it” rarely works because its not coming from a place of infinite patience, gratitude and love. Nobody wants to be fixed because it makes us believe we are broken.
 
Approach your fear how you would like to be approached if you were hurting. Hold the space around your fear as sacred, so your fear can be felt, seen and accepted just as it is.
 
Holding space means you are allowing for gentleness, kindness and a feeling of infinite patience all around it. We all like to be given space with loving patience when we are hurting.
 
Giving space allows the cause and reason for your fear to surface and be healed with a compassion heart and ears. By being exquisitely present to your fear, allowing it to exist as it is, you’ll find that its contracted energy ends up naturally dispersing into the vast space around it. Simply relax, as you become the space that is allowing this fear to be here now.
 
3. Let every breath be your prayer.
 
This 3rd part is a very powerful meditation that will shift your fear forever.
 
On the inhalation of each breath, imagine you are breathing in the darkest aspects of your fear into your heart.
 
On your exhalation, imagine breathing out a beam of white light from your heart into that darkest place of fear. Practice this exchange of dark and light energy until the dark fearful feeling no longer has a “charge”, and you have no resistance to it.
 
Don’t worry about your heart being negatively effected by this exercise, the heart is the greatest alchemist you’ll ever find. It is always moving energy (blood) through it, so nothing can get stuck in it when you are practicing welcoming that which is not welcome to come in.
 
The great secret for this transformation to take root is realizing all fear is simply an absence of love and a lack of light. It is not anything but the experience of lack itself.
 
Remember, it only takes a candle flame to light up the darkest room in your house. If you’re facing a major life phobia it may take 20-30 minutes of breathing before you feel any shift.
 
Your eyes need time to fully adjust to any newly lit dark room. If your fear is subtle, you can feel a healing shift happen in your body in a few minutes with this magical meditation.
 
Just know one thing as you practice…any scary gremlins you think are hiding in the corners of your mind are also soft childhood stuffed animals who are covered with crust of pain and are deeply needing love.

Giving for Re-giving Principle

Love is unchangeable and undividable.

The universe is, and manifests by, the Law of Love. This is explained in Universal Law by the ‘Giving for Re-giving Principle.’

We will forever be at war with one another until we learn to give our all with the full expectation of equal receiving, and never taking that which is not given.

Electricity is the servant of Mind. It does all the work of creating this light-wave universe in unfolding-refolding sequences. The universal Mind has two desires – the desire for creative expression through the action of concentrative thinking and the desire for rest from action through decentrative thinking.

One desire seemingly separates Oneness into unbalanced multiplicity and the other voids multiplicity back into balanced Oneness. One desire is for action and the other for rest. This is the means by which all things in Nature grow or unfold by appearing from the void of rest from which all creating things appear, disappear and reappear in sequential cycles.

This is the electric pulse beat of the universe. One pulsation compresses, the other expands. The compressive pulsation gives form to idea by seeking rest at wave amplitudes through centripetal action. The destructive pulsation voids form to seek rest at wave axes through centrifugal reaction.

These two opposite desires are characteristic of all effects of motion. All animal, vegetable and mineral life seeks action and rest alternately.

We must understand this fundamental principle of Creation: Giving between each interchanging opposite half of each cycle for the purpose of Repeating its Giving. This is universal law and each individual must manifest this law.

Our power lies in giving. We must learn to give as Nature gives. Nature forever unfolds into many for the purpose of refolding into one.

Nature only Gives for eternal Re-giving.

20 Things You Need To Let Go

20 Things You Need To Let Go To Be Happy

By Ashley Fern / Elite Daily

Everyone has one common goal in life: to achieve true happiness. The biggest factor holding us back from achieving our dreams is, simply and sadly, our own selves. We put limitations on ourselves everyday, whether intentionally or unintentionally. There are so many ways we can alleviate these restraints.

Remember, life can either be something you embrace or something you hide from. Stop making things complicated and just live your life. It would be so much simpler and more enjoyable if we learned to just release certain limitations.

Let’s take a look at the things you need to let go of in order to become a happier person.

Let Go Let God1. The Approval Of Others

Who gives a sh*t what other people think? If you are happy with the decisions you have made, then whose business is that but your own? Think of how much you could achieve if you stopped letting other people’s opinions dictate the way you live your life. Do you, and engage in whatever actions you think might better your life.

2. Anger/Resentment

Anger will eat at you from the inside. Learn how to make peace with those who have wronged you. This isn’t about letting the other person off the hook; it’s about alleviating the pain that resonates within you. Keep in mind that he who angers you, controls you.

3. Negative Body Image

There is only one person’s opinion you should be concerned with when it comes to your body and that is you. No one person determines what the “correct” body type is. If you are comfortable in your own skin, and you are healthy, then that should be the only thing that matters. Do not let others tell you that you’re not beautiful because if you believe you are, then you are.

4. Idea Of A Perfect Partner

There is no such thing as a perfect partner, so throw your checklist out the window. In life, what prevents us from moving forward is looking at the perfect image of a partner we concoct in our minds. Find the right person for you: one that you can love with all your heart, one you feel comfortable with and one that accepts you for the person you are. The sooner you realize there isn’t one perfect person out there for you, the better off you will be.

“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.” – Bob Marley

5. Perfect Life

Just like there is no perfect partner, there is also not a perfect life. Life is what you put into it, so if you are not willing to work hard and put forth effort, you will most likely end up miserable. The choices you make will directly reflect the life you lead. It is up to you to create the best possible world for yourself.

6. You’re Going To Be Rich

Too many people live their lives with the thought that they will be millionaires. While this can be a realistic goal for some, it is not something that can be achieved without hard work and dedication. Stop letting money be your sole motivator; find a career you are passionate about and immerse yourself in it completely.

7. The Idea That Good Fortune Will Arrive At Your Doorstep

You need to go out into the world and actively look for fulfillment. You cannot take a backseat in life and expect things to happen for you. Appreciate the life you live, and be grateful for what you have. Value each minute of every day. Live like there’s no tomorrow, and make the most out of any situation.

8. Excuses

Make no time for excuses. You want to work out, but you don’t have the time? Wake up early and get your gym on. Excuses are only rationalizations that make you feel better about yourself for not doing something you want/need to be doing. You desire results? Stop bitching, and start doing.

9. Thoughts Of Your Ex

This person is your ex for a reason. If you are going to think of him or her at all, try and think only about the lessons the experience taught you. Do not linger on any old feelings, as this will only prevent you from being happy with someone else in the future.

10. Stubbornness

I know it’s hard to admit, but sometimes you are just wrong. Other people have just as much capability as you do in providing the correct answer, so stop being stubborn and just embrace it. The less stubborn you act, the more open you are to learning new things. Think of all you could be exposed to if you stopped believing in opinions other than your own.

11. Procrastination

Stop thinking you will finally get to whatever task is at hand tomorrow. Live in the present, and get your sh*t done when it needs to be done. Maximize your time to the best of your ability. Complete each task you need to as soon as you can. This allows you to feel free from worry and stress by getting things out of the way as soon as possible. You also allow yourself more free time to enjoy the things you love.

12. Your Baggage

We have all been hurt one time or another by someone we loved, or we thought we loved. Carrying negative feelings into future relationships will only prove to be disastrous. No two people are the same, so it’s unfair to hold a future partner to a standard set by an ex. Try to begin each new relationship with a clean slate.

13. Negativity

What you put out into the universe will come back to you, so change the way you think, immediately. Stop thinking of life as a glass half empty, but rather, half full. You have so much to be grateful for, if only you took a moment to appreciate it. Anything is possible in the mind of a positive thinker.

14. Judgmental Thoughts

Why do people feel the need to constantly worry about what is going on in other people’s lives? If we spent as much time worrying about our own behaviors as we do worrying about those of others, our lives would be a whole lot more meaningful. You have no idea what is going on in another person’s life, so who are you to pass judgment on the way they act?

15. Jealousy

Happiness is not having what you want; it’s wanting what you have. Stop envying others and learn to appreciate what you have. Everyone’s life is unique; you have certain things to offer that others cannot. When we act in a jealous manner, all we do is bring negative feelings into our lives. There is absolutely nothing to gain from behaving this way.

16. Insecurity

Happy people tend to have extremely high levels of self-esteem. They accept who they are and work it everyday of their lives. They radiate confidence, flaunt their pride and give off positive vibes. There is no reason to be insecure in life. If there are things you are self-conscious about, go out into the world and seek to change them. Only you have the ability to create the best version of yourself.

17. Depending On Others For Happiness

At the end of the day, the only person you can count on 100 percent of the time is yourself. Do not make the unfortunate mistake many people do and put your happiness in the hands of others. A relationship is not going to fulfill the void if you can’t even make yourself happy. You need to achieve happiness on your own before you can find someone else to share it with. This creates a detrimental dependency that will prevent you from becoming self-sufficient.

18. The Past

Stop living in the past! There is virtually nothing you can gain if you wallow in mistakes you have previously made. Take past mistakes as lessons learned, and move forward. You cannot wholeheartedly move on to a better future if you are constantly looking behind you. Things happened, and that’s that. Take them with a grain of salt and move on.

19. The Need For Control

Sometimes you just need to let life happen the way it is meant to. You cannot spend your life stressing about things that are outside of your control. Try to relax, and let things play out naturally. Embrace the unknown, as this is where you will be surprised the most. Let yourself be whisked into unforeseen endeavors, and relish in the excitement they bring.

20. Expectations

Managing your expectations is the key to happiness. If you let go of expectations, you will never be disappointed. Often, we tend to believe that the way we treat others will be the way we are treated in return. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Do not expect a certain result from any given situations. Go into an experience with an open mind. This will allow you to fully immerse yourself, without the pressure of living up to preconceived notions.

There Is No Death

There Is No Death
 
“In the midst of winter, I learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~Albert Camus
 
You are like the Sun. Eternally bright, warm and healing. There is nothing in this Universe that can put your light out. Your brilliance will continue on and on… for eternity. Your inner light is always on, blazing bright and expanding.
 
You shine without even knowing you are shining. The light of your awareness is continuous, even when the mind clouds your vision the Sun is always always shining behind it.
 
The light that you are is forever here now. There is always a flame burning within you. Even when you think all is lost, hopeless and dark, it is there. Even after your body wears out, and you physically leave this amazing vehicle, you will see that the light of your creative lumin-essence goes on and on.
 
Something will continue to experience life, reality, and consciousness. Death is the greatest illusion of them all.
 
If you truly want to get the most out of your time and experience the greatest experiences possible on Earth, you must first accept deep in your heart that there is no end to this experience called life.
 
You must know it deep down, so it becomes a part of you. When you trust that which never dies is forever inside you, eternally free at the core, you become fearless and unstoppable in all that you do.
 
Every thing you do becomes successful. Any goal you want to achieve will manifest because you will have no fear. Your approach will be unfailing because you have nothing to gain or lose. You can finally leap into the unknown with total faith, courage, enthusiasm and joy!
 
The person who realizes that he/she is not really a person, but a soul that lives in this body is the only one who can truly be unconditionally loving and free. Everyone else will give love with conditions and be attached to some form of expectation.
 
This is because they are attached to their ego, thoughts and body on some level. They think this form is all that they are and thus are limited by it.
 
The advanced being knows otherwise. The truly liberated soul has realized that they are pure undifferentiated consciousness, that is beyond all thought and form, and is grounded and well established in the joy and freedom of being absolute unconditional love.
 
When you accept that there is no death in this lifetime, you begin to see everything with new eyes.
 
The typical stressful situations you’re used to suddenly become exciting fresh new adventures!
 
Those people who challenge you on the deepest levels are truly your greatest teachers, and are welcomed into your heart on the most intimate levels. This is how we can know and experience what real peace is like.
 
There is no longer any resistance, judgment or fear because you realize you are the eternal source of love. All is forgiven and everyone is your friend. It is truly discovering heaven on Earth, every single day of your life.
 
“Love does not resist itself because there is no thing outside it to resist.” ~Angela Walker
 
Recognition of the deathless in you is the fastest way to true freedom. It comes instantly from a deeper investigation of your spiritual nature and an honoring of the very essence of your being.
 
This is what really matter most in this lifetime. The source of who you are is where the ego life ends and the spiritual life begins. You know you cannot bring any of this “stuff” with you when you die, so why invest so much of your time and energy into it?
 
Do not be attached to anything that you can place a label or name upon. Everything one day will fall away from you, like old leaves on a maple tree when hit by the autumn breeze.
 
Simply invest all your time and consciousness exploring the eternal light and love that you are.
 
It is like we were told as children to be afraid of a snake that is really a piece of rope. It sure looks like a snake in the dark when the lights are dim, yet when you turn on the light and see the truth you just begin to laugh and laugh and laugh!
 
When you fully accept that death is not real, then you really start to smile and truly become alive. You stop being afraid of everything in life completely.
 
You also stop procrastinating and start doing everything you always wanted to do. You stop holding back your love, your words of appreciation, and your sacred heart energy, and every meaningful thing you wished to say to those who you care most about.
 
You start to share the gold which you always felt could not be shared.
 
In truth there is nothing to be afraid of. Everything is always on a divine cosmic plan. The projection your mind has created in who and what you think death is or who you are is still a small slice of the truth. The totality of you is beyond what you can imagine.
 
You don’t have to be afraid anymore. Are you afraid to look in the mirror? You may not like what you see, yet you know that what you see can change if you’re willing to look at yourself differently.
 
This tiny shift in perception is all it takes to step into the deathless experience of life. This is my invitation for you. Open your mind and see what its like to live the next 24 hours of your life knowing deep in your heart that you will never ever die.
 
You will find that the mind resists this experience or tries to manipulate and micromanage it. The mind is used to living in being in control.
 
To live a life without fear is the purpose of your life, yet if the mind hears there is nothing to worry about it will truly get worried! The mind is used to its job of being afraid and time bound in the 3D world of polarity thinking.
 
It doesn’t know anything about living for an eternity. That seems absurd, there are so many practical things to accomplish and being absolutely trusting would mean that nothing would get done.
 
Give your mind the option to explore what is behind door number three.
 
Imagine what it may be like to just explore the sensation and knowing that you are an eternal being who will go on and on forever.
 
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

You Have Permission to Be Totally Wild and Absolutely Free


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40
“Paradise is not somewhere that you need a map to reach. You are in paradise, you have only fallen asleep. All that is needed is an awakening.” -Osho

We all live in cages of some type, shape or form. When we feel disconnected from our spiritual nature, anything or anyone can feel like a prison. Perhaps our spouse, a close personal friend, our physical body, financial situation, emotions, or even our own reactionary behaviors in life can make us feel trapped.


 

The good news is that whatever cage that you are locked up in actually has a key. That key is sitting there, resting inside the lock, ready to be turned when you have had enough suffering and are ready to set your spirit free once again.

 

Turning your key begins with understanding a few basic principles about what real freedom is, and what it is not. Being totally wild and absolutely free is not some radical, rebellious, or disrespectful approach to life. It is also not about conquering some authority “out there” in the world, ripping into someone who tells us how we should and shouldn’t live our lives.

 

We don’t need permission from someone else to be, do and create whatever we want. Real liberation in life is not a freedom from someone or from something. It is more about finding freedom FOR someone or FOR something that inspires our lives deeply.

 

Real freedom is about recognizing how you already are the final word and ultimate authority of your life. It is knowing that what you believe is what becomes real, and this is your truth and final reality. There are 7 billion realities on the planet now and you are one of them. The moment we choose to believe we are some wildly fun and free being, is the exact same moment that we just realized that we already are the absolute final authority of our lives.

 

The greatest realization is a gentle knowing that the only real prison in life, is the one created within our own mind.

 

We may not see the walls because we are so used to them. These invisible prison walls are the limiting, skeptical, doubtful, and negative beliefs within our minds.

 

It’s comprised of a list of ideas which we tell ourselves is possible and impossible.

 

We are already constantly manifesting everything in our lives. Wherever we place our attention for a long period of time, is where our energy flows and what we manifest. We are already the great God source, creating everything around us.

 

Our greatest joy is merely a matter of understanding how everything is an extension of our consciousness and nothing and no one is separate from it.

 

From this deep spiritual truth, it becomes obvious how the human mind has been imprisoning us all this time, blocking us from living the amazing life we were born to live.

 

“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” ~ Dalai Lama

 

How to give yourself permission to be totally wild and absolutely free starts with letting go of every one of those personal truths which you cling to, that make you feel not so free.

 

Those negative thoughts and beliefs which honestly feel true and real, yet also make you feel sick, stuck, heavy, unhappy and like you’re locked up in some sad dark prison cell.

 

Your beliefs are the only things stopping you from your freedom. This may sound ridiculously simple, yet when you reach down into the core of you, you’ll find that this truth is all there is.

 

When you want to manifest the life you want, it just doesn’t get any simpler than this.

 

We must stop being attached to all beliefs, ideas and thoughts if we really want to be free.

 

We must step back from every good and bad belief we grew up with about who we are and who we are not.

 

We must leave behind all of our disappointments, hopes and fears if we want to truly start living and stop dying.

 

We must decide to live as if everything could end tomorrow, and also live an eternal spiritual being knowing nothing can ever kill us.

 

This time is your life, so live it to the max.

 

You don’t know exactly how long you’re going to be around.

 

The Universe has given you a mouth to smile with, and a body to enjoy.

 

Don’t waste your time here, go live your life totally and truly.

 

Right now, try to feel what it’s like to have full permission to be freed from the good and bad opinions of others for one week.

 

How does it feel in your body to be honestly free from everyone’s judgments of you?

 

This is one of the most self loving, natural and honorable ways we can live each day.

 

This is the golden key that turns the lock to realizing at the core, who and what we are is already a powerful, divine and magnificent spiritual being.

 

This spirit and soul who we truly are in essence is already always free.

 

When we know our basic spiritual nature, we can feel that the essence of our spirit is something that cannot be contained, imprisoned, nor taken away by anything or anyone in the outer world.

 

Realizing this is real freedom, and this spiritually free feeling is our natural state of being. All exploration and expression from this place is the most loving act we can give to ourselves and others.

 

The full expression of our real spiritual nature is the deepest gift we can give, as it is the greatest honoring of who we truly are.

 

You may think that becoming a wildly liberated human being might not be something at the top of your to-do list this week, yet if it’s not in there somewhere, you definitively aren’t going to enjoy doing anything on your to-do list.

 

Without wildness, your entire life will become a chore, a burden, or heavy job that must be accomplished just so that you get your wants and needs met.

 

If you don’t stop to turn your key to finding spiritual freedom, you will miss out on the main core purpose of your life.

 

Which is to enjoy the short time you are here and alive.

 

“It is only by experiencing truth on your own freedom happens. Freedom is the fragrance of the experience of truth.” – Osho

 

The basic step to total freedom is to continuously let go of what others think of you. This means releasing what you think your immediate friends, family, coworkers, and lovers think about you.

 

You honestly don’t know what goes on in their mind, yet when you drop what you think their opinions are of you, you can drop what your opinions are of you.

 

As long as you are attached to what they think about you, you’ll never be free from what you think about you.

 

The mind is always judging, comparing and labeling something or someone, then changing it’s mind again and again. When you totally let go of what others think of you, it means you are free to think and believe whatever you want to think about YOU.

 

This is the greatest freedom there is! So step back from your thoughts, they are all borrowed ideas from other people anyway.

 

Deep down, this life is more humorous and ironic than we realize.

 

We are creating all of our suffering and our joys everyday.

 

All along this lifelong journey, at the very core of our being is a river of perpetual loving creative energy, overflowing with deep healing peace.

 

We don’t have to go anywhere to find it. All we simply need to do is sit, become deeply relaxed in the body and let the mind not cling to any thought that arises.

 

It may take some time to relax with the mind, be cling free and at peace.

 

Yet, doing so you will find your spiritual nature. There is nothing more important that you should be doing with your life.

 

The more often you practice being at peace with what arises in the mind, the easier it becomes to experience every “ordinary” thing in life as Divine.

 

God follows us wherever we go. Whenever the mind clings to something extra important or special, notice this with awareness and don’t push it away.

 

Don’t label anything as bad, wrong or a problem. If you do, this in itself will become what’s blocking you from feeling an enlightened liberated state.

 

Just welcome all thoughts with the greatest curiosity, and see what is beneath each one. You’ll see there is nothing there.

 

Each thought is recycled information that we shouldn’t take personally at all.

 

If you want to get down to the core of you, ask yourself what hole inside you are you trying to fill?

 

Where are you empty inside and why?

 

Make this an enlightening exercise that gently opens the door to your soul.

 

When you discover where you feel empty, you’ll see why you’re clinging to those things that you cannot let go of.

 

This awareness and understanding is the most important next step of your wild journey coming ahead.

 

The real battle is won when we see that there are no real enemies out there. The only enemy is an imaginary ones within our own mind. When we discover our connection to our spiritual nature, we see that every single human being is a soul and spiritual gift to our lives as well.

 

From this place, every person we encounter becomes the source of more love, joy and deeper inner peace.

 

When we give ourselves permission to be spiritually connected, we truly become wild and free. We stop avoiding others and resisting letting in more love.

 

We start embracing who and what we all actually are. As a spiritual being, there is nobody to fight with or against anymore.

 

The more we practice living in this spiritual connection, the better it feels and the more real it becomes. When we live 24 hours a day knowing we are a spiritual being that will never die, we will stop suffering completely.

 

The fight will end with others and within ourselves.

 

We then realize that we are the ultimate authority of our reality and be able to create heaven any moment we want on this Earth.

 

This realization is the sacred path to our enlightenment, and finding our inner wildness within is the bridge back to our spiritual essence because our spiritual nature is wild, free and untamable.

 

Expressing this awakens us from the almighty ego trip we were on, so that we can gently hold ourselves in the most loving healing light every moment of the day.

Fuck happiness and fuck self-esteem


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40

Say you’ve been to therapy, or bought a self-help book, or thought about doing either of those things. You may be wondering, “Why can’t I be happy?” “Why do I have such bad luck?” or “Why is my boss so unfair?”

One shrink has a novel solution: “fuck happy. fuck self-improvement, self-esteem, fairness, helpfulness and everything in between.”

Because if you can set aside all of these obsessions, you might be able to simply accept that there are lots of things you can’t change — and get over it.

That’s the message of the new book F*ck Feelings (Simon & Schuster), whose authors combine different skill sets for what amounts to the Ice Bucket Challenge of self-help books.

The writers who would like to dump a gallon of ice chunks all over your confused little skull are Dr. Michael Bennett, a Harvard Medical School-trained psychiatrist, and his comedy-writer daughter Sarah Bennett, who used to contribute to the improv act the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.

So if the book doesn’t fix your life, at least you may get a laugh out of it.

Whenever you have an insoluble “Why?” in your life, the Bennetts offer, the solution is to stop asking the question. “The answer you’ll get from your Maker, when you finally meet Him or Her and get to ask why,” they write, “is the same one you got from your mother when she didn’t know the answer and didn’t want to waste time — ‘because I said so. Now go make yourself useful.’ ”

And don’t expect anyone (except your mother) to pay attention when you’re describing your pains and sorrows.

In the chapter “fuck Self-Esteem,” the Bennetts mock the idea that feeling good about yourself is “an essential vitamin to take before you can gain control of your life.”

Forget that: “Enjoy bursts of confidence when you can and take credit for your hard work, but beware making confidence a goal, because that implies control, responsibility and blame when you can’t make it happen . . . Instead, assume you’re stuck with s- -t.” So do your best to survive, try not to add to your troubles, and behave as if you like yourself.

A more pressing problem no one is doing anything about is ESE: Excessive Self-Esteem. “It would help humanity a lot more if those suffering from ESE adjusted their self-admiration to more reasonable levels,” the Bennetts write. If only Oprah would do shows entitled, “You’re not that great!”

Useful as the book is in counteracting therapy-speak — it amounts to a nourishing slap in the face for those who need to be shocked out of their crybaby habits — it’s really more important than that. Because the way Americans think about civic life is as flawed as the way we think about our own lives.

The book supplies lists of “things you wish for and can’t have” contrasted with “things you can aim for and actually achieve.” For instance, you wish you could have a “an improved heart free of hate, envy, fear and general ugliness.” Fat chance, buddy. What can you actually achieve? “Act decently in spite of the way you really feel” and “bear the pain of living with ugly feelings.”

If Americans ever reached that stage, it would be a natural next step for everyone to think: Hey, other people have feelings I consider ugly. I guess I’ll have to deal with that instead of trying to shut them up, or pretending I need a “safe space” where I can retreat from, say, Christina Hoff Sommers. 

Sommers’ speech at Oberlin last spring, in which she said “rape culture” on college campuses is overstated, caused a tiny tantrum among infantile students who warned of “toxic, dangerous, and/or violent” people, as though the scholar’s speech contained arsenic or bullets.

Even more important is the chapter, “fuck Fairness.” Sure, watching bad guys suffer makes for great entertainment, but the Bennetts warn about “the amount of evil you can cause by pursuing fairness.” You can’t undo all of the bad things that happen, at least not in this life. “You need to know when to accept the fact that you’ve been fucked and know when fighting will get you further fucked,” is the colorful way the Bennetts put it.

That is sound advice when it comes to your personal life — sorry your Daddy hit you and you didn’t get to hit him back, but there’s nothing you can do about it now.

But it also goes for your existence as a citizen. Putting your psychic energy on a politician who promises an end to all the bad stuff that’s happened in the past, or who heralds a new law that is going to prevent bad stuff from happening in the future, or creates a sparkly new agency that is going to protect you from your own stupidity? fuck that.

The Secret to Happiness: Stop Caring


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40

Our lives are inundated with practicality and productivity. We think that if there’s no purpose to something, there’s no point in doing it. In reality the best things in life have no purpose.

We sacrifice our time and our sanity doing what we don’t want to do, so at some future point we will create the freedom to do what we love.

We seek happiness in things. We seek happiness in the acceptance of others, in material possessions, in social status. We even search for happiness in some future-promised afterlife. We sabotage ourselves and our entire lives because we fail to understand a very simple but easily overlooked fact.

The Search for Happiness is the Single Greatest Cause of Misery

You can’t find something that’s already there. Happiness exists now. It’s not something you have to find. That’s like trying to find your breath.

It’s the grasping of the mind that causes unhappiness. If you’re not happy, it’s because your mind doesn’t allow you be happy. And the reason your mind doesn’t let you be happy, is because you’re stuck in the vicious cycle of productivity, judgment and purpose. That’s not to say productivity is bad, or that doing things that have a purpose is wrong. It’s basing the reason for your existence on them that causes so much anguish.

When we place our happiness solely in “getting” something, completing a certain number of tasks on our to-do list, or achieving a goal, we’re fooling ourselves. We’re like a rabbit with a carrot stick attached to our heads. We keep chasing the carrot, but we never get there. We never stop to think that it might be the chasing that’s causing the problem. We’re too distracted trying to find a better way to beat the game. As soon as we reach one level of success, we’re hurrying to upgrade our search and move on to the next level of the chase. We never stop to think that it’s not the failure to win the game that causes our grief, but the game itself.

We neglect to realize that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to stop participating in the problem. Sometimes the best way to to solve a problem is to just stop caring.

Sometimes…

  • The best way to solve the problem of not having a lot of cool friends is to stop caring about having cool friends.
  • The smartest way to be happy with the place you live is to stop caring about living in a two story house with a pool, a fireplace, central air and satellite TV.
  • The simplest way to be content with yourself is not to achieve greatness and praise, but to accept yourself fully for who you are now.
  • The quickest route to happiness is to stop caring about finding happiness and to start being happiness.

By not caring, we immediately release ourselves of the grasping of the mind. But it’s not easy to stay in this mindset (the mind loves to grasp); it’s something we have to constantly cultivate.

It’s especially difficult when our society tends to place more value on things, than on experiences. We value what we do more than how we feel.

This is completely ridiculous when you think about it. Because the way you feel should be more important than anything else. Isn’t the purpose of everything you do to feel good? Isn’t the purpose of that new car, that promotion, or college degree to give you a feeling of accomplishment? Isn’t that supposed to make you happy?

The problem with this is we’re basing our happiness on temporary things. We’re deriving our joy from an achievement, or an attainment. This isn’t true happiness; it’s an addiction. We get a short burst of endorphins to our bloodstream from our new TV, or new iPod, and then what happens? It disappears. It leaves us feeling empty and we begin looking for our next fix.

Our advertising and consumer culture doesn’t help this much. We are constantly bombarded with messages that we need this, or we need that. Incessantly, we hear: “Buy this and it will solve your problem!” If only we could solve that problem we may finally be happy. Wrong. It’s not the problems that are the problem. I mean, buying a more efficient vacuum or sowing on that button you’ve been meaning to for seven years is great. You may feel a sense of achievement for a few moments or days. But you’re still looking for happiness in a thing.

It’s the same with productivity. If only we could finish all of the things on our to-do list, could we be content. If only we could accomplish all of our goals, could we finally be gratified. This thinking is based on the illusion that you’ll reach a certain point where everything is done. You finally made it! There’s nothing left in your inbox, all your projects are complete and your lifelong goals are achieved! Now you can rest easy.

But this point never seems to come, does it? That’s because there will always be things to do. There will always be challenges, because everything in life is constantly changing. If you reached a point in your life where you had no more problems, no more struggles, no more worries, life would stop. The game would end and there would be no point left in playing.

So… what can we do about this?

We Need to Stop Caring

That doesn’t mean we stop trying to achieve our goals or striving for personal growth. It just means that we no longer base our happiness on fleeting, semi-permanent things.

There are obviously some situations where not caring may have serious negative consequences (paying your rent). Excessive caring, however, is likely to make you miserable.

The reason caring too much can be detrimental to your health, is you’re so focused on the future. Your identity is too attached to outcomes. If something does, or doesn’t go your way, it will likely have an enduring effect on your mood for the rest of the day.

Instead, we should base our happiness on permanent things. Things that don’t change. Desires that don’t shift from moment to moment. We choose to find our happiness in living. In life itself. In fact, we don’t even need to “find” happiness. We can be happiness.

So stop searching. You can’t find something that’s already there.

9 Signs it’s Time to Change Your Mindset


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40

It is ultimately only our own thoughts that help us or hurt us. Once our mindset changes, everything on the outside gradually changes along with it.

“There’s a brilliant, beautiful, priceless piece of art in front of you!  It’s elaborate and detailed – a painstaking labor of love and devotion!  The colors and textures are like no other – they soar and dip, they shine and leap right off the canvas!  And yet you choose to fixate your eyes on the tiny, black housefly that has landed on it.  Why would you do such a thing?”

She cracked a half smile and starred at me in silence.

“Look,” I said, “the point is there’s no way to be 100% sure about anything or anyone in this world.  Life, like art, is intricate and unpredictable.  So you’re left with a choice: either appreciate it and look for the best, or focus on and expect the worst.”

If you expect the worst, you’re never disappointed,” she pointed out.

“Yeah, but who lives like that?” I replied.  “No one.  People die slowly every day like that, without every truly living.”

That’s the gist of a Skype conversation I had this morning with a new course/coaching student (I’m sharing this with her permission).  She literally started the conversation by telling me that expecting negative things to happen is her way of coping with life.  If you can relate in any way at all, it’s time to rethink things.

And make no mistake about it, the battle you are going through isn’t fueled by the words or actions of others; it isn’t fueled by what did or didn’t happen in the past; it’s fueled by your mind that gives negativity importance.

Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to happiness and success.  Your perspective on life comes from the inner emotional cage you’ve been holding yourself captive in.

Here are some clear signs it’s time to change your mindset:

Reminder:  Have you checked out our book?  We just released a new bundle pack for “1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently” which includes our eBook, audio book, paperback and bonus material on sale for a big discount.  Click here to check it out!

1.  You see nothing but negatives.

If you were determined to get joy out of the present moment, you would learn to focus on the positive.  What it takes is not paying attention to negative thoughts – yours or anyone else’s.  Disregarding negative thoughts isn’t about burying your head in the sand; it’s the focused act of not allowing negativity to fog your vision and dominate your experience of the present.

This moment is never enhanced or helped in any way by negativity, even though we as human beings are programmed to think our negative thoughts, worries and fears serve some beneficial function.  When we deeply examine a negative thought we see that negativity doesn’t serve any benefit.  Focusing on negativity doesn’t make anyone a better person, nor does doing so help us make any bit of progress.  In fact, the truth is quite the opposite.

2.  You are relentlessly resisting the truth.

Watch your self-talk.  See if you can catch yourself consciously or subconsciously complaining about your present life situation, what other people have said or done, your past, your surroundings, or even the weather.  To complain is always non-acceptance of reality.  It invariably carries with it a tremendous amount of negativity and stress.

When you complain, you transform yourself into a victim.  When you proactively take positive action, on the other hand, you are in power.  So if something is truly bothering you, change your situation by taking action, or consciously let it go – leave the situation or accept it.  All else is foolishness.

Remind yourself, again and again if you must, when something cannot be changed you must change your attitude about it.  After you have done what you can do, happiness is allowing yourself to be perfectly OK with ‘what is,’ rather than wishing for and worrying about ‘what is not.’  ‘What is’ is what’s supposed to be, or it would not be.  The rest is just you, arguing with life.  (Read The Power of Now.)

3.  You have a tendency to blame others.

Letting go gives us emotional freedom, and emotional freedom is the only condition for happiness.  If, in your heart, you still cling to anything – anger, resentment, jealously, etc. – you cannot be free.  And doing so doesn’t change the heart of other people – it only changes yours.  Know this.

Put down the sword and stop attacking others in your head.  The strong person is not the best fighter.  Rather, the strong person is the one who controls herself when she is angry, and grows from it.

4.  You are passionately worried about everything.

Worrying does nothing but steal your joy and keep you busy doing nothing.  It’s like using your imagination to create things you don’t want.  You need to stop getting yourself into situations in your head where all your options are potentially bad.

Remember, it’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.  There are always two ways to address your present situation.  Each way is like a brick, which can be used as a stepping-stone, or which can be picked up in a worried frenzy and used to shatter your window of hope and happiness.

The bottom line is that everything on the outside doesn’t need to be perfect or make sense right now.  Stop worrying, focus within, and be mindful.  In your mind you can go anywhere you imagine.  And where your mind consistently goes, the rest of your life will gradually follow.

5.  Your expectations are stressing you out.

Drop the needless expectations.  Appreciate ‘what is’ for a moment.  It doesn’t matter if your glass is half empty or half full.  Just be thankful that you have a glass and that there’s something in it.  Choosing to be positive and having an appreciative attitude influences everything you do.  The magnitude of your happiness and success will be directly proportional to the magnitude of your thoughts and how you choose to think about things.

Nothing ever works out exactly the way you want it to.  Hope for the best, but expect less.  Appreciate reality, don’t fight it.  Don’t let what you expected to happen blind you from the goodness happening all around.  Even if it doesn’t work out at all, it’s still worth it if it made you feel something new, and if it taught you something new.

6.  You secretly want a pain free life.

Pain is a pesky part of being human, but it’s vitally important.  It strengthens the mind, heart and body.  You can’t grow strong, brave, or successful in this world if you’ve only had good things happen to you within the safe boundaries of your own little comfort bubble.  You need real life experiences, and nothing ever becomes real until you experience it firsthand.

Honestly, life is very much like a game of chess.  To win you have to make a move, even when it’s tough and things before didn’t go exactly as planned.  Knowing which move to make comes with insight and knowledge, by learning the unexpected and often painful lessons that are accumulated along the way.

7.  You’re never satisfied with what you have.

Our stress and frustration is far greater when we have more than enough but want even more, than when we have almost nothing and want some.  In other words, as human beings we are less dissatisfied when we lack many things than when we endlessly seem to lack but one continuously changing thing.

Details aside, the key is to want less and appreciate more.

A lot of people get so hung up on what they can’t have that they don’t think for a second about whether they really want it.  Ask yourself: “Are these things truly better than the things I already have?  Or am I just conditioned to be unhappy with what I have?”

In the end, happiness is an attitude of gratitude we act upon daily.  We either make the best of the present or the worst of it.  We either make ourselves miserable or happier and stronger.  The amount of effort is the same.

8.  It’s been awhile since you learned something new.

The best remedy for being sad or feeling stuck is learning something new.  That’s the only thing that never fails – simply making progress and knowing it.

Your body may grow old and frail, you may lie awake some nights listening to your past regrets, you may miss your only love, you may see the world around you overcome by toxic behaviors, or know your respect has been trampled on by unfriendly faces.  There is only one thing for healing that works every time – to learn.  Learn why the world around you zigs and zags and what fuels it.  Learn what excites you and learn more about it.  That’s the only positive effort that a battered mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or doubt, and never dream of regretting.

Learning is healing.  Just look at all the things there are to learn, and get started.

9.  You catch yourself living in the past.

Nostalgia is a good and necessary state of mind sometimes.  It’s a way for all of us to find lessons in every life experience, and peace in all which we have accomplished, or even failed to accomplish.  At the same time though, if nostalgia precipitates intentions and actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted past time, particularly in someone who believes her present life to be inadequate, then it’s an empty state of mind, doomed to produce nothing more than frustration and an even greater sense of unhappiness.

Don’t let the past steal your present.  Your past has not defined, deterred, or defeated you.  It has only strengthened who you are today.  Keep this in mind and press onward.  (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Adversity” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

Afterthoughts

An effective mindset is one that makes the best use of available resources – your time, energy and efforts – and uses them to create positive change.  It’s not about trying to do everything and be everything; it’s making the very best of what you have while enjoying the process of living.

Your mindset is the underpinning and cornerstone for everything that happens in your life.  It’s a collection of all your beliefs, behaviors, feelings, emotions and attitudes.

As you work to adjust your mindset, here’s what you can expect from striking the right balance:

  • A sense of firm faith, certainty and purpose
  • Consistent drive, focus and commitment to meaningful pursuits
  • Clear insight into present obstacles and opportunities
  • A feeling of peace and joy from making progress daily

Your turn…

What state of mind have you been in lately?  What changes would you like to make to your mindset and why?  Leave a comment below and share your thoughts and insights.

The Most Powerful Affirmations Ever Created


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40

Affirmations are simple, yet powerful phrases you can repeat to yourself throughout the day in order to reprogram your conscious and subconscious mind.

They can greatly facilitate the replacement of limiting beliefs with ones that more accurately reflect your true divine nature and support a life of greater health, happiness, abundance and awareness.

The Most Powerful Times of the Day to Repeat Affirmations

Immediately upon waking in the morning. The second you open your eyes, begin to repeat your affirmations to yourself. This will set the tone for your day. Furthermore, immediately upon waking, you still have greater access to the subconscious mind, which will help facilitate the transformation of your beliefs. You may want to create some sort of reminder and keep it next to your bed as it can be difficult to remember the affirmations after intense dreams.

Immediately prior to going to sleep. Setting intentions before you go to sleep allows you to work with and internalize them in the expanded state of awareness we access in the dream state. We go deep into our subconscious minds while dreaming and a well timed affirmation just prior to dozing off can more easily penetrate the barriers that normally keep us from accessing this part of our mind.

During and immediately following meditations. Meditating allows us to shut off the thinking mind and access deeper levels of awareness and focus. In this expanded, receptive state, simple suggestions are far more powerful than normal and can penetrate and alter our limiting beliefs more easily. It is highly recommended to use either of the sound healings available at MindCastr.com as these are embedded with powerful affirmations and special tones (binaural frequencies) that put your mind into a deeply receptive state, which allows for greater and more rapid transformation. 

Whenever you remember throughout the day. The only caveat here is to not overuse the affirmations, as you risk them losing their power and meaning. You must be open to and ready for a shift in your beliefs and awareness, otherwise no amount of repetition will change that fact. These affirmations are profound spiritual truths and they should be treated with respect. Explore them, learn from them, and internalize them.

1. I have unlimited abundance available to me always.

All you need to do is realize this and accept it into your life. Examine how you may be cutting yourself off from it through conscious/subconscious beliefs. The universe is infinitely abundant and provides us with everything we could ever need. Only we have the ability to cut ourselves off from this through limiting beliefs.

2. I am the creator of my reality.

You are the creator of your reality and no one else. However, until you become conscious of this fact and begin to work with it, you are giving your power to others and letting forces outside yourself strongly influence and define your reality, and so the illusion of not having full control is perpetuated. Only when you are ready to take full responsibility for everything you have created in your life, will you be able to take full control over it.

3. I love and accept myself just as I am.

Everything is perfect, always. You are not excluded from this. Where you are in your spiritual development and awareness in this moment, is perfect. There is no better than or less than, only what is. And so everyone and everything is also perfect, no matter how dark and no matter how light.

4. I am loved and supported by the universe.

As an aspect of the Creator/God, you are unconditionally loved and supported. All are loved unequivocally and equally. The degree to which you experience this in your life is a reflection of the openness you have to this love. Again, only you can choose to cut yourself off from this and only you can choose how open to the love you are.

5. I am a powerful spiritual being.

Do not underestimate your power. Do not believe all that you have been told about what you are capable of. Society, well meaning friends, family, and loved ones, mainstream science and the media may all tell you otherwise, but pay no heed to their words, for you, and they too, are infinitely powerful spiritual beings. We are all at various stages in the process of remembering this truth — the truth that we are indeed capable of anything we put our focus, will and mind to.

6. I attract exactly what I need effortlessly.

Life is as easy as you allow it to be. If you are having difficulties, ask yourself why you are creating these for yourself? What lesson do you need to learn? What limiting belief is keeping you from attracting exactly what you need effortlessly? Be brutally honest with yourself — anything less is only holding YOU back, no one else.

7. I have the ability to create and achieve whatever I desire.

It is your birthright. The Creator/God created humankind in its image and so you too are given the power to create whatever it is you desire. And so you do, whether you are aware of it or not. As you become more aware of your true power and begin to take greater responsibility for it, so too will you begin to wield greater power over your creations.

8. I am a spiritual being having a physical experience.

Everything originates from spirit. Do not lose sight of the forest for the trees. Always maintain a higher perspective on the events occurring at any given time. This will help to keep you from getting lost and sucked into the illusion of duality and separateness. Let your higher self/intuition guide you and you will never be led astray.

9. I am at peace with the world around me and the world is at peace with me.

As a powerful creator being, your have the choice as to what relationship you choose to have with the world around you. Do you choose conflict and separateness, or oneness and peace? Become aware of how you approach life and your day to day interactions, as the world around you simply reflects back to you what frequency you are broadcasting. If you are unhappy with how the world is treating you, then change your personal perceptions and watch the world transform before your eyes.

The Only Block to Enlightenment


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/drhosoje/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/yoga/wp-lightboxJS/wp-lightboxJS.php on line 40
 
There is only one thing that will delay your enlightenment. There is only one place that you can hide, where the enlightened state cannot find you. By doing this one thing, you will always block bliss from penetrating your being.
 
This one thing is to remain in your mind, living up in your head, and never ever stop thinking. If you never give the mind space to rest it’s thinking routine, you can never relax deeply enough to know Nirvana.
 
On the enlightened path, you realize that “thinking” separates you from entering a cosmic state of being. Thinking only takes you away from the light of consciousness that is emanating from the core of your being… right now.
 
Thinking actually creates a lack of consciousness, while being allows for more consciousness to enter. By dropping thinking, you attain this effortless Universal mind and fall into the highest levels of ecstatic consciousness.
 
By living from your neck up you are only believing in your mind’s version of reality, and remain imprisoned in thought.
 
You cannot know the Divine Source from where all thought comes from until you drop the head.
 
This struggling mind is what causes you to think you’re separate from Source. It creates and holds tightly onto beliefs, morals, ideologies, traditions, grudges and thus makes you think you are not be free.
 
Being free of the mind is true freedom. It is resting in Source and relaxing into this pure consciousness that you already are.
 
The moment you liberate yourself from the incessant chatter and dialog in your mind, you are instantly happy, enlightened and free!
 
The mind can no longer be bothering you with its wants, needs and desires. It cannot because it has found something much bigger, better and more satisfying to explore.
 
It has discovered the God Source is within itself. It’s true nature is divine! The instant you realize all life forms contain this infinitely creative divine energy, you discover that within yourself.
 
The best thing about enlightenment is that its free, and you can fall into it at anytime anyplace. Just simply stop thinking about anything, and it will show up.
 
Remember however that enlightenment is an all or nothing experience. Either you totally surrender the ego/mind, or you don’t. There’s no 99% surrender in the land of enlightenment.
 
The mind is either absorbed in the Self, or the ego is still running the big show. Each moment anything can happen and you can swing in either direction.
 
You instantly step into the enlightened state when you drop the mind and surrender to the source of pure consciousness. It’s a super simple, really it’s a “no-brainer”.
 
This divine flash of enlightenment does not just happen from thinking only enlightening thoughts, it cannot.
 
If we possessed the “right thoughts” to become enlightened, then our enlightenment could be taken away when those thoughts disappeared.
 
Enlightenment is something that cannot be taken away because it is your natural state of being, the love that is your essence.
 
Your heart is where enlightenment lives, and where it is found.
 
So the real question to ask yourself is, “What am I doing that is blocking this natural feeling of being enlightened?”
 
Well, what are you thinking about? How often are you in silence and have stopped thinking?
 
Clinging to thoughts is the #1 issue people have. Dwelling on any thought takes you away from the pure presence of your enlightened nature.
 
It’s that simple!
 
Just by noticing your thinking patterns, bringing awareness to them, you start to enjoy the play and start being this big bright ball of luminescent conscious light.
 
From here you can easily let any thought come or go, and your brilliant beaming loving essence shines through on everyone.
 
Dropping the mind is easy, it only takes one little trick called a slight shift in perception.
 
I invite you to ask yourself one little question every morning from here on…
 
“What is it like to completely be free from any attachment to my body, these thoughts, feelings, beliefs, expectations, judgments, etc… and feel intimately connected, free, open, alive and joyous in the here and now?”
 
Ask yourself this question before you get out of bed each morning for 3 days and see what happens!
 
This is something worth getting really excited about.
 
To have this enlightening experience you must devote yourself 300% to fully being here now. You must let go of every single thought that you are attached to or avoiding.
 
Any thought, idea or memory that you feel is more important than this all-intelligent divine magical Universal presence, then that becomes your God.
 
When you let go of the mind, you become one with everything. From here you can welcome everything that is happening within this experience of your life right now. This makes existence feel very sacred and intimate.
 
You realize that each person, place and thing is actually filled with Divine energy and the same all-intelligent consciousness, so you end up bowing down to life everywhere you go.
 
Everything becomes enjoyable because you never have a problem enjoying your connection with Source which is always in the here and now.
 
Whatever you focus on or give attention to, this is how you make, invent and generate your reality. If you want to become enlightened then focus on the idea that you already are, then let that thought go.
 
There is no need to hold onto any thought, for it is simply a changing thing. The divine experience of yourself is always going to be sooo much more amazing than anything your mind can imagine.
 
If thinking is the only block, then the solution and way to conquer the head is to bring your awareness away from your brain and down into your heart.
 
By simply focusing your attention on your heart as often as possible, you open that energy center which is the source of love, compassion and awareness.
 
By meditating on your heart for 20 minutes a day will alone cause you to move closer to the enlightened state. An open heart brings on a quieter mind, where you can find this deliciousness inside.
 
If you just cannot stop thinking, try sitting down and pondering what the state of no-mind is like.
 
What would it be like to be without thoughts?
 
Be careful, with enough attention you may suddenly drop it!
 
That enlightening space tastes divine and when you take the time to fully explore your inner world, you’ll soon discover that you are not alone, you are not this mind, and that you are the master of these thoughts.
 
Notice how all thoughts come and they go, while you stay permanently. You are forever here now.
 
Realize this, and surrender your attachment to your mind, your ego and its agenda.
 
Release any grip your mind has on any thought and be ONE with every atom in the Universe. The battle is over if you are no longer fighting with it.
 
The continual thinking head has to surrender when its faced with the heart. It cannot win over the powerful loving presence from below.
 
The great secret to entering this enlightened heart state is to begin with feeling your deepest, most emotional feelings which you can find inside.
 
Whatever it is… a feeling of joy, gratitude, appreciation, love, or anger, sadness, grief, apathy, whatever it is negative or positive it does not matter.
 
Just be real and honest with yourself, you cannot lose. Just stop and feel what is really going on in your life, don’t think about just feel into it completely and see how everything changes.
