Life Strategy. Living in Simplicity

Simplicity is a precise focus on something so that there is both a lot of space, or there is no space. The energy just ‘is’, it doesn’t have a chance to move around and create complications. It just is what it is, and that’s it.

You have to let go of the mind and feel this. Most people’s inner being is cluttered with ancient memories, emotions, thought-forms, and when you’re connected with your inner space, without feeling squashed, you can see your way forward more easily. Here’s a short talk for you to discover how you too can simplify your life.

Life Strategy. Part 2 of What Is Spirituality. An Out-of-the-Box Exploration

Continuing our conversation on What-Is Spirituality.

Simplicity Intro Pix

There are only two things in material life that are definite. You are born and you die. That’s it. Between these there is a range of choice that comes from Spirit’s gift of a mind with which to think, a heart with which to feel, and free will in weaving it all together. With your intuition, that voice of your Soul and your connector to All That Is all you need to do is to simply focus on where you’re heading, precisely. Where you are now is Presence. What-Is.
And the choice of what and how to fulfill all this material space is purely yours.
At the beginning of any journey, life or otherwise, it often seems daunting. By breaking everything down into simple steps, though, you find that things will converge into a rhythm of movement seemingly without effort. It’s that simple. Each little step once done becomes a memory and as life flows on you find all your little memories ultimately merge into one big one.
How you felt about this, or that,how you felt about anything at any time is intertwined and will impact choice whether you are conscious of them or not. This is your history.
It’s important to be aware of this as you move forward, because this history is the underlying theme to being fully alive. Do any memories come up, fleeting or otherwise on any past situation? What are they? Do they define where you’d like to head in the future? You’d be surprised on how many people make choices for the future based on memories of the past. The what-ifs.
Just because something happened in the past need not mean that it will happen again in the future.  Unless, of course, you feed energy into it.
By focusing on each step, and by creating memories of a specific value to you, without mindless chatter you find that your life becomes one history of multiple, brilliant memories. Some are lighter than others, of course, upon reflection you will see a certain relationship that if you wish you can encapsulate into one or two words that form the thread of your life, a part of the Journey of Your Soul.
What is your thread? This is what you’ve come to learn, in this lifetime. By in-breathing this in the light of acceptance, you harmonise Soul energy and move on. At the same time, seeing and accepting your gifts mean that you grow this part of your energy too.
Memories can be changed, too, you know. More specifically you can change your emotional attachment to any memory at any time just by being aware, create understanding. Mostly by accepting that they are over. Then you are no longer prisoner to the more challenging ones. Without diminishing the value of each experience, space is opened within for other, perhaps lighter, experiences to spring forth.
This is the most direct way of short-circuiting an undisciplined mind that is focused on what-ifs. Otherwise known as fear, it gnaws the soul and reduces the beauty of life into pointless soul-searching,a mindless search for the Self that is already Present, now.
Think about it. :)

Life Strategy. What is Spirituality? An Out-of-the Box Exploration. Part 1

 Life is Open Space, the basis of who you are. In answer to your questions about what is Spirituality, it’s time to step out of the box of what others think it is. I see it as your ability to communicate with Spirit, bringing the formless into form at will and to be able to interpret it concisely. At the same time you are able to see multiple perspectives, which bring you back into Open Space. Yours.

Using your greatest gift – the ability to think – you match it with your ability to discern, otherwise known as choice. This forms the basis of your life. In cooperation with Spirit it is ultimately a reclamation of your own space that evolves your journey’s direction. You get to fill it with whatever resonates with you, view clearly what else is placed in front of you, connect with your inherent wisdom to deal with it cleanly and with precision. This determines flow.

Very, very simple. At the same time very very dignified.

With this you live right in the centre of Life, now. You are not out of it by living in the past or future: fearing, daydreaming, wishing. There are no should’s, even could’s remain a part of infinite potential until you come to that space that presents choice. And what-is, rather than what-if, becomes your direct view.

All then whether you do, or you don’t doesn’t much matter as Life flows on, anyway. The only thing that matters ultimately, really, is that essentially nothing does.

Think about it.

Life Strategy. Moving On in a World Essentially Full of Light. Listen.

Even in the most desolate spaces do flowers bud, that represent new life. Are YOU ready to breath light into new life for yourself too? Leave the past behind? There’s no time like the present moment to make that choice. Start by looking for what is simple, what is already there, and build on that. And vroom vroom….. away you go!

How did you go? How did you feel doing this? And, most important, what happened! Let me know your stories so we can share amongst others!

 

Life Strategy. Moving On In a World Essentially Full of Light.

PeaceHow has this year gone for you? Like it’s whooshed through in about 2 seconds? That’s how it felt to me!
It’s been an astonishing year.
Many of you have asked what next year will bring, it’s human nature to want to know what’s coming. Insights given mean that you’ll feel more safe within yourself, more prepared to meet the future, whatever lies ….. ‘there’ …. And then to make the decision on what to bring ….. ‘here’…..
In this light, 2016 can be, if you wish, the year of New Life.
We’re on the verge of new and exciting times where our now very anachronistic external landscape is changing. Look at what’s around you now compared to this time last year. No-one is exempt from the change of external environment. From what may on the surface seem to be ‘disastrous’, ‘negative’, ‘awful’ (etc) can also be seen to be old structure breaking down to make room for new, in the same way that even in the most desolate landscape do flowers eventually start to bud.
Within the increasing noise and busyness of the Shadow world can be found great opportunity too. That’s always the case – the gift of Spirit in providing opportunity for growth in All That Is. It’s up to you to claim it.
Connect to this new potential of being simply by being more willing to operate beyond conventional thought. Think outside of the box.Be clever about it. You will thus be one of those who help fire up new energy streams and patterns of thought that uplift you and others to fly, unencumbered by other peoples’ beliefs, needs and fears.
How’s that for freedom?
Many of you originally came to Spirit because essentially the external world did not work for you, It was too noisy/busy/fast/materialistic. You were tired, perhaps also a bit disoriented and/or no longer sure of your identity. Most of all you wanted something beyond the material, ultimately to live inspirational lives. unravel Truth from perspective, embrace what is real and live authentically, genuinely, kindly, whatever, that is right for you in enlightened society with others, similar. Knowing that you are thus supported, life becomes one of more dignity, confidence and wisdom, it’s joy is in finding
Within huge grief and anger at all the man-made and natural difficulties that seized our attention multiple times this year came a small but determined budding of this Spirit of community. It’s expressed by more and more people finding their voice or who are supporting those who already have. We’re still at the very beginning, and we have some way to go yet. But it’s definitely there now where before there was only silence, accompanied by inertia. As with everything in our world, whatever you focus on you will grow. So focus on this rather than anything else, breathe life into it and grow it into full flower.
Next year will continue to be challenging – it’s how you grow. All the more reason to express your spiritual heart with a clear sense of direction. You can no longer wait for others to fix what’s been broken for years, what’s not functioning within your matrix and beyond.Take the first, simple step of reviewing what in your life is not working. What has needed to be said and done all these years? What are your trigger points? Then you cut the energy. Do it in steps if you need to but do it. No-one else is going to do it for you, With a view to your extended community and its impact you free yourself, lovingly, kindly and gently. This will minimize ongoing karma (and drama).
Then, you decide what really matters to you. What’s next? What have you always wanted to do? What feels right? You all have an inner sense of your own answers. This is Spirit calling you. Now, as we head to New Life, take action, feel your way again maybe  again just one small step at a time with your silent chant of “Let us see where this takes me”. Essentially when we set out to do something, no-one ever has guarantees and Spirit sometimes throws a curved ball, just to keep us present, LOL. It’s not even about leap of faith or trust. But if you determine to follow the energy as it unfolds, then the old cliche of the journey being the joy comes true. The journey from A to B and onwards will be full of wonderful memories, especially if you choose to smell the flowers during your travels.
And memories are the only thing that last forever, within us.
Something to thank yourself for, ultimately.
These simple moves taken in the light of your own freedom and preferred onward momentum is your multidimensional signal to the Universe of the Ultimate Freedom. This is of the freedom to think clearly, see with love and make choices for yourself to be reflected outwards, into the wider world community,
This is enlightenment, lived.
Enjoy.
Much love, as always.

 

Life Strategy. Listen. Inside Each of Us, All Of Us, Ultimately, We Seek Peace.

In Thailand there is a very old saying: “Rivermen’s discernment helps one to make the appropriate moment and diminish the influence of Fate.  Mekong fishermen stay abreast of change.”

In today’s ever-chaotic world, are you ready to take charge of what’s around – and within – you? Stop running around after what doesn’t matter and walk away from ignorance, confusion, inaccurate perspective and delusion? And achieve a little more permanent peace at the same time, by connecting with your own inner Spirit, not just some of the time, all of the time? Listen here to know the effects of connecting to your own Spiritual energy. By your commitment to this, you become part of a community of Wisdom Love devoted to holding the light in the face of great darkness in how things are currently established in our world. Would love to hear your understandings of the messages that came through me as I recorded this.

It can be an emotive subject – if you allow it. Everyone is thinking about it and afraid they will say the ‘wrong’ thing. Let me know YOUR thought, would be great to hear from you.

You can read it here too! Enjoy!

Life Strategy. Inside Each of Us, All Of us, Ultimately, We Seek Peace.

For quite a while now, I’ve been concerned at where our world is going at current trajectory. So during the September new moon, I asked to see. And I was shown that what is happening in terms of the growing conflict in our world today is not going to be sorted out anytime soon. It’ll take years, maybe even a generation or more because it’s effectively conflict with an invisible enemy. There may be some advances that may seem like successes, but they will be small plasters on a massive suppurating wound mostly because the core is rotten. Like the head of the hydra, once a pistule is cut several more will spring forth. The darkness is fulfilled by its ability to strike terror through its lack of compassion, in ignorance of Truth, the absence of Love and individuals’ personal emotional baggage embedded in cultural memory banks. The darkness isn’t just in war zones and seeking to spread it. It is and has always been living amongst us all, wherever we are in the history of our world.Since then – well, even before then – I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s going on in our world right now.Haven’t you?And I’ve been thinking about each of you too who individually, collectively share with me your innermost thoughts and lives. You are all of you so very human, and so keen to do what is right – for you, your families, everyone around you really. And I thought that I could teach around this, or we could look at it together, without fear.When you factor everything in, and see deeply the many different layers of life, you will see that essentially we are all living the projections of our mind and many of these are distorted, a reactive list of -must-and-should-do’s that are rooted into us from birth, most of the time without us being aware of it.

In material terms, we are living separated from our innermost being, lives that are very often fear-based illusion erroneously called ‘reality’ and focused mostly on limitation and separation, us from ourselves and with each other. And modern-day culture is teaching us to communicate mostly through technology rather than listening closely to people speaking to us and most of all listening to ourselves. Our mind wanders, mostly to what needs to be done, what people said or did, and how we are going to deal with it all. And so on.

Most people have in their daily lives more than enough to deal with, without having to stretch to think about what’s going on in the world around them, and come to a knowing about where that’s all heading and what to do about it all too. Yet it’s critically important to be aware, because from this springs the tools to deal with it.

It is undeniable that the darkness is growing around us in the world. To teach inspiration, or joy, or love, or any other aspect of Spirit and to not acknowledge this is to pretend there isn’t an elephant in the room. There is, and it’s big. And it’s not going to go away anytime soon.

Most people think that if it’s not in their area, or if they don’t watch the news, it’s not going to affect them.

Great thought-process, but …. boinngggg …. inaccurate simply because Life is inextricably networked, you me, everyone else and every situation around us too. That’s life.

“When the war started (in Syria) I thought this is the beginning of the end of all ‘darkness’ as you call it,” someone wrote to me recently. “They are going to destroy each other. It was bound to happen. It creates an imbalance in the Universe and it has to correct itself. Love has to prevail in the end. Any cause based on hatred and darkness cannot survive. It is on a self-destruct course right now.”

What is on a self-destruct course right now? War? The darkness?

No.

We are – because ultimately most people are just watching events unfold as if it’s just a soap opera and will never touch them. But the fact that you are just observing means that whoever you are watching struggling in the waves, trudging through countries, living in camps, dying from some virus and/or whatever is your karma too, because you are present. You can read specifics in the article on watching the Interconnection of Karma Being Expressed Today.

In writing this I was accused of not seeing what was really happening. “Everyone understands the humanity side of the problem,” someone wrote. “But spare a thought for the reality of the situation. Particularly in the years ahead,”I was told in reference to the Charlie Hebdo and similar massacres.

My point is that there is no one answer on how to fix any single event but by staying inert or even live in fear of recurrence it is going to grow unchallenged. My point too is that it has now become signficant that each one of us plays a decisive part in clearing our own piece of the darkness by seeing and connecting with our own inner Light. By so doing, we ultimately clear the collective not by doing, simply by recognising, embodying and expressing the extent of our innermost BEING.

Rumi puts it beautifully. “There is one thing in this world which must never be forgotten. If you were to forget everything else, but were not to forget this, there would be no cause to worry, while if you remembered, performed and attended to everything else, but forgot that one thing, you would in fact have done nothing whatsoever. It is as if a king had sent you to a country to carry out one special, specific task. You go to the country and you perform a hundred other tasks, but if you have not performed the task you were sent for, it is as if you have performed nothing at all. So man has come into the world for a particular task, and that is his purpose. If he doesn’t perform it, he will have done nothing.”

This is what is meant by bringing Spirit into materiality and the first focus of our humanity. It’s not about your ego, or your personality, that part of you between birth and death. It’s about defining, expressing and experiencing the enormous infinite and eternal part of you in the meantime. And forever.

You start by knowing the heart of your innermost being, from which springs the core of you. Whilst each one’s journey is different, deep within our collective soul it is the fundamentally the same. And that is our fundamental desire to live together in peace, grow in understanding, be heard, seen and valued.Most of all to be loved. And each one to know that for this to happen, we first have to be this then reflect it outwards

To follow the path of this wisdom has now become urgent, its complexity in the light of what is happening in our world today made even more difficult because the majority of society is stuck in illusion. That wealth or its pursuit buys happiness, power is about the ability to control and manipulate, that businesses can flourish at the expense of its people and that greed, excess and waste through ignorance (or not) are themes of life to be celebrated. It’s a sad fantasy that when most people are pursuing these ‘dreams’, including governments who protect the right of their people to continue this way of existence, human life and community consciousness are sacrificed in other, different parts of the world. It seems that it’s okay that someone (else) has to give away something so others can continue to have it.

Well, not just governments.Individuals too.

The darkness that has now come to light in our world is both a sickness and an opportunity so don’t give in to it by being afraid of it, nor by judging it, because where-ever you place your mind will grow it. Eyeball it instead by knowing that you can only be silenced if you believe that it and what it says is real.

 

Attend to it instead by focusing on your wisdom journey. Stay connected to Spirit – your Spirit which keeps you authentic, and don’t be afraid to speak your truth, whatever that may be and however uncomfortable it is for you to deliver or your audience to hear. See clearly the  multiple addictions and accompanying desires of this modern age, what takes people out of themselves, distracts from what is happening right under their noses.

 

Wish for the best for everyone and if Spirit gives you an idea to enact within this, don’t be afraid to do so. It’s your journey and your karmic contract with yourself.

 

Above all, don’t be afraid of yourself or the immensity of what you can achieve. You may be one, that bends like the reed in the wind, yet if you are able to connect with others who are all on the same path – a community consciousness of wisdom, of growth, of love and sharing, you will be indestructible. Thus will the light – which is really the light of awareness and your own spiritual heart – eyeball the darkness, each in your own way.

 

It’s all these tiny lights that together form a massive flame of your own greatest potential, knowing that you are already playing your part in eyeballing the darkness merely by the light of your ultimate Being into it.
