Life is like Photography!!


Crystals, Meditation, Flower essences, Essential oils, Sacred geometry, Mudras, Mantras, Incantations, Vision boards…

They are all metaphysical technologies, and like any technology, if you don’t know how to use it , your motherboard could get fried, Danielle LaPorte writes in her latest book White Hot Truth: Danielle’s website.

Trying to activate the Kundalini because you read a book somewhere is like starting to build a nuclear reactor in your home because you read how to do it on the internet – Sadhguru.

Danielle goes on to say Once you find your God/Goddess, He/She may turn your life inside out and you’ll be called to reorganize your plans, your mind, and your body. You will finally understand the “work” in “Light worker”.

So what do you hold to be your awareness level, let’s take a journey to the stars:

aware1

1. Eckhart Tolle talks about the power of the Now to exist in the silence of pure presence, seems to be another way of illustrating awareness.

aware2

2. My mentor Arion Light through his Activation work has us be in contact with our essence in our bodies not our mind. The awareness this provides is phenomenal: What is Activation?

aware3

3. A + C = R.

aware4

4. Babies lie in their cradles watching the world in awe because they are not yet aware that things are labelled, perhaps it is the purest form of awareness: Cats in the Cradle.

aware5

5. What does awareness give us, shitloads apparently

aware6

6. How well do you accept your life, I feel I spend a lot of time being unaware what is going on, it’s just a haze so acceptance could be a long way off: Suddenly I See.

aware7

7. Lao Tzu is one of my top ten. You can read one sentence and study it for the next week.

aware8

8. Be aware that self love is your greatest growth seed. Water it and you will transform: Born this Way.

aware9

9. They say the best way to learn something is to teach it, do you have the gonads to do that.

aware10

10. Heroism is always available. Through ordinary experience the ordinary man can become extraordinary: Heroes.

aware11

11. So is mine, I love Google Images, It’s part of my blogging necessities.

aware12

12. Another essential, Trust has to be included in living a truly aware life: Trust.

aware13

13. My friend Emeli’s life was transformed when Jim Stynes, head of the Reach Foundation asked her What are you going to do with your life when she was fighting with grief in an unsustainable way She now runs this: Collective Potential

aware14

14. A West African shaman by the name of Dr. Malidoma Patrice Somé has a different view of mental illness compared to that of people in the western world, where we focus on pathology and the idea that the behavior exhibited by those diagnosed with the condition is something that needs to stop.

Dr. Somé proposes that what we call depression, bipolar, psychosis and schizophrenia may perhaps be a remarkable transformation in consciousness and an inevitable step towards human development.

Dr. Somé and the Dagara people support the shamanic view that signals mental illness as “the birth of a healer.” They believe that this person has been selected as a medium for a message to the community. What Westerners view as “mental illness”, the Dagara people view as “good news from the other world.”: Healing Song.

aware15

15. Then, finally it’s your awareness that matters in the end, do the best you can for you.

Should we avoid esoteric practices and teachers altogether and take the path of total self-reliance? We can’t. And we shouldn’t-this is part of our awakening. What we should do, at many stops along the way, is recommit to our spiritual education. We should scrutinize every class, every sermon, every theory, with the respect our soul – and our greatest teachers deserve.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Soul of Service!!


I’m suffering a hit of ecstatic bliss at the moment because I received Danielle LaPorte’s new book White Hot Truth in the mail this week. Subtitled Clarity for keeping it real on your spiritual path – from one seeker to another the small portion I have read delivers on all fronts.

I flipped the book open and came to the section on service, hence the title, the chapter also includes the words conscious optimism and giving from your fullness, I love this statement. In the chapter is this following quote:

I am driven by two main philosophies; know more today

about the world than I knew yesterday, and lessen the suffering

of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you – Neil Degrasse Tyson.

The one comment I wish to make on the Manchester bombing is the graciousness the homeless man showed to the victims, he could of quite easily snuck off into the darkness of the anonymity of that subculture. For his kindness he has been gifted six months free rental of a house by the owner of Manchester United . This is what should be remembered about that horrendous event, not the event itself.

So what happens when you live from a space of giving, let’s have a look:

give1

1. A mining magnate in my country of Australia has gifted $400 million dollars , about 10% of his wealth to various charities. He said that making money is not about having bigger houses it’s about making a difference if and when you can.

giv2

2. Live the life you were really meant to, his holiness the Dalai Lama says happiness does not come from loving yourself first, it is from helping others and compassion: Give.

giv3

3. A kind gesture can be as simple as smiling at the person sitting next to you on the tram, train, or bus.

giv4

4. Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier: Love Life.

giv5

5. Perhaps an oxymoron but you need to create space so that you can give one of the great gifts in life, the joy of allowing others to give to you.

giv6

6. Time is a made up conversation, how much do you value it. The gift of quality time is priceless to another, much more than an object: Time after Time.

giv7

7. “Don’t Just

Don’t just learn, experience.
Don’t just read, absorb.
Don’t just change, transform.
Don’t just relate, advocate.
Don’t just promise, prove.
Don’t just criticize, encourage.
Don’t just think, ponder.
Don’t just take, give.
Don’t just see, feel.
Don’t just dream, do.
Don’t just hear, listen.
Don’t just talk, act.
Don’t just tell, show.
Don’t just exist, live.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

giv8.jpeg

8. What’s your gift to the world, how are you doing in giving it away to others: Pablo Picasso.

giv9

9. Don’t be a two handed taker!!

giv10

10. There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up: Just the Way you Are.

giv11

11. Minimalism is a current fad, to make your life simpler by cleaning it up, giving away what you don’t use and not taking stuff you don’t need.

giv12

12. One of my dear friends is having treatment for cancer at the moment, I send her a song from Youtube on a regular basis to cheer her up, I also call her the divine one: Standup.

giv13

13. This is called the pay it forward philosophy, join the movement.

giv14

14. I am one of the chronic givers who fights the battle with being able to receive, I was well trained by my mum to be a lifelong volunteer: Castle on the Hill.

giv15

15. Give from Love.

So I will finish with another paragraph from Danielle:

Use your Soul. Stop, drop and send light. You believe in it so use it. After you dry your tears from the latest shooting or news headlines, take four minutes – twenty if you can – to sit in silence and very specifically send  love, positive energy, healing, light and prayers to the person, people, place or situation on need. How many times so we say to someone, “I’m sending you Love”?Really send it

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

You cannot Lose Something you Are!!


Apologies for being a day late, I was putting my computer in a drawer at the reception at work as I was going to lunch and the office was locked when I found my copy of The Universe has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein. I opened it to a page that had an affirmation on it:

I recognize I have chosen wrongly, I forgive this thought, and I choose again. I choose Love”

It is from a chapter called Oneness sets you Free, surrendering to the Holy Instant. What would life be like if we lived it in oneness, not duality? Many great philosophers have made comment on this subject, let’s have a look at what they say.

oneness1

  1. As you can’t read it clearly this is what Albert said A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

oneness2

2. Love Ram Dass, (born Richard Alpert; April 6, 1931)He is an American spiritual teacher and the author of the seminal 1971 book Be Here Now. He is known for his personal and professional associations with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s, for his travels to India and his relationship with the Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba, and for founding the charitable organizations Seva Foundation and Hanuman Foundation. He continues to teach via his website: Be Here Now.

oneness3

3. Such a beautiful way of looking at Life. Michael Beckwith, founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, if you have ever heard him speak you know that he lives his life this way.

oneness4

4. When I was a runner I used to run the Shri Chinmoy half marathons in Melbourne. The organizers were some of the most open-hearted people I have come across: Open my Heart.

oneness5

5. Remember those nights you were in the outback staring at the milky way realizing that you were an insignificant drop in a massive universe that you could not exist without, this talks to that.

oneness6

6. Oneness is very simple: everything is included and allowed to live according to its true nature. This is the secret that is being revealed, the opportunity that is offered. How we make use of this opportunity depends upon the degree of our participation, how much we are prepared to give ourselves to the work that needs to be done, to the freedom that needs to be lived: Individuality.

oneness7

7. Now, this is a difficult state to reach given what the media serve up to us on a daily basis.

oneness8

8. In all this oneness, we have special moments. We call them Love, for George: Careless Whispers.

oneness9

9. I write a daily Love Meme every day, often using a heart symbol. It represents to me what makes us all one.

oneness10

10. Why did you turn left instead of right and run into your beloved? Because in our lives there are no random occurrences even though we often complain they happened: Safe.

oneness11

11. We are all Starseed, the mountains, the seas, Us.

oneness12

12. I once saw this man pour sand out of his hands. He could shift your concept of what was so. If you were willing to believe it was a different thing: Divinity.

oneness13

13. Each of us has the divine masculine and the divine feminine within us. They need each other but must operate as one to be effective.

oneness14

14. Quantum Physics has argued for this since its concept, unfortunately, our eyes cannot see the closing scene from the Matrix: Lose Yourself to Dance.

oneness15

15. And in Oneness Everything is a Gift, even that.

Another practice from Gabrielle’s book is Let go of the shadow of the past by seeing someone for the first time with the eyes of love. So let’s recognize the other person is you.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

What’s meant to Be!!


I spent quite a few years of my life being impatient that life should go a certain way then took up meditation on advice from a friend of mine who seemed much more relaxed about life than myself.

I was terrible at it first with my monkey mind on overdrive, but slowly I learnt the art of patience and mindfulness and have been able to accept that this madness of our society for instant gratification is not how life is meant to be , that good things come with patience. Let’s define patience before we begin our journey.

Patience (or forbearing) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on negative annoyance/anger; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can have before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. Antonyms include hastiness and impetuousness.

I have found 15 quotes that go back as far as Ancient Greek times, lets begin.

patience1

1. At first having a massive to do list may seem to some that we are getting more done, but our mind is so busy with getting from A to B to C that we are concentrated on what we already know and are missing out on what is available from the universe.

patience2

2. Edmund Burke was an Irish statesman born in Dublin, as well as an author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher who, after moving to London, served as a member of parliament for many years in the House of Commons with the Whig Party. With all those occupations Edmund must have lived the above quote throughout his life: Growing Up.

patience3

3. Often we leave the most important person off the list of people to be patient with, our parents, our siblings , our lovers, but what about ourselves, Yes, self love  is one thing that must make that list.

patience4

4. Here’s the ancient Greek. How many times have we begged something to happen when through it not occurring a much sweeter fruit has ended up in our basket:  Strange Fruit.

patience5

5. saadi – Abū-Muhammad Muslih al-Dīn bin Abdallāh Shīrāzī, better known by his pen-name Saadi (سعدی Saʿdī( Saadi )), also known as Saadi of Shiraz, was one of the major Persian poets and literary men of the medieval period. He is not only famous in Persian-speaking countries, but has been quoted in western sources as well. He is recognized for the quality of his writings and for the depth of his social and moral thoughts. Saadi is widely recognized as one of the greatest poets of the classical literary tradition. How often we forget this.

patience6

6. The quick wins don’t make you the master, It’s more how you react and recover from Mistakes that maketh the man, success includes patience as part of the recipe: That Power.

patience7

7. Wait for what is meant to be , not force an issue. 365 or 1 day, it will find you.

patience8

8. It’s the actions between the waiting that show you the power of patience. Do right things and the results will follow: Patience.

patience9

9. The never ending story we tell ourselves in our heads like It will never work out, why doesn’t he/she like me are instant gratification stories. Have patience that yes, it will still happen.

patience10

10. The traditional 10, 9, 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,Blast off we all can relate to from the space program points to how after spending millions of dollars time is still taken to the very end, and beginning: Space Oddity.

patience11

11. You are unique among 7,000,000,000 people. Trust that and your journey will be a lot easier.

patience12

12. I didn’t know this, when I buy one I will obviously have to be patient waiting on its delivery: It makes you feel like dancing.

patience13

13. John Kabat-Zin is one of the pioneers of mindfulness in the western world. Check out his YouTube talks on the subject, he’s  very impressive.

patience14

14. Can’t wait for the result, I’m sure you have a few hundred other tasks you could do to take your mind off it: KIds.

patience15

15. Augustine of Hippo – Augustine’s contemporaries often believed astrology to be an exact and genuine science. Its practitioners were regarded as true men of learning and called mathemathici. Astrology played a prominent part in Manichaean doctrine, and Augustine himself was attracted by their books in his youth, being particularly fascinated by those who claimed to foretell the future. Later, as a bishop, he used to warn that one should avoid astrologers who combine science and horoscopes. (Augustine’s term “mathematici”, meaning “astrologers”, is sometimes mistranslated as “mathematicians”.) According to Augustine, they were not genuine students of Hipparchus or Eratosthenes but “common swindlers”.

So my request is to aim high, but also to show patience on the journey.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends

Does it strike a Chord?


Whats your favourite program? What did you think on reading that? About T.V., radio, the gym. How do you get with the program in your life? In my life I do personal development program , online and Face to Face. Not much of a TV program kind of person, can’t stand the negativity of them all and definitely not a fan of realism TV, I know how to cook and I don’t need to renovate a house or marry a person I just met half an hour ago.

Strangely I have heard people having conversations amongst themselves like the people from these shows are their best friends, this challenges my sense of community participation profoundly.

So lets get with the program and have a look :

program1

1. This program is not great for your health, I tried all three for about ten years ans spent a period of time being looked after by the men in white.

program2

2.  Suzanne Young is the New York Times bestselling author of The Program series. Originally from Utica, New York, Suzanne moved to Arizona to pursue her dream of not freezing to death. She is a novelist and an English teacher, but not always in that order : History never Repeats.

program3

3.  In this “gripping tale for lovers of dystopian romance” , true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, and the only solution is The Program.

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in.

And The Program is coming for them.

program4

4. Have you ever felt like life will swallow you up and you will never come back. I remember we used to play in an old abandoned gold mine in Bendigo and there were times I wanted someone to hold my hand : I want to hold your Hand.

program6

5.Definitely a member of this distinguished club, the darker the better.

program5

6. There is only one song to go with this deep comment by Jim on the program: When the Music’s Over, turn out the Light.

program7

7 H. Rap Brown – Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, (born October 4, 1943, as Hubert Gerold Brown), also known as H. Rap Brown, was chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 1960s, and during a short-lived (six months) alliance between SNCC and the Black Panther Party, he served as their minister of justice. He is perhaps most famous for his proclamation during that period that “violence is as American as cherry pie,” as well as once stating that “If America don’t come around, we’re gonna burn it down.” He is also known for his autobiography Die Nigger Die!. He is currently serving a life sentence for murder following the 2000 shooting of two Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies. He did not fit into the program.

program8

8. The first original astronauts came from the top gun flying squadrons, wold, daredevils pilots who had the gonads needed to risk it all in the name of the conquest of space: Danger Zone.

program9

9. Larry Niven  is also known in science fiction fandom for “Niven’s Law”: There is no cause so right that one cannot find a fool following it. Over the course of his career Niven has added to this first law a list of Niven’s Laws which he describes as “how the Universe works” as far as he can tell. Here are 5 examples of them Niven’s laws – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Never fire a laser at a mirror.
  • Giving up freedom for security is beginning to look naïve.
  • It is easier to destroy than to create.
  • Ethics change with technology.
  • The only universal message in science fiction: There exist minds that think as well as you do, but differently

program10

10. With everybody having a phone attached to their hand or head it will be an offence to do this soon, ask that is: How do you think It/I feels

program11

11. Life changes moment to moment. Why do we live it like this is a lie, because we like holding onto a sense of normality as tightly as we can.

program12

12. What flavour would you buy, I would buy I am Enough : Ice Cream Truck.

program13

13. Jobs and this guy, they didn’t follow the program, they invented it.

program14

14. I’m training the company I consult for to think of their customers as fans, they have got onto Kevin Kelly’s method 1,000 true fans so they are up to it. Think I’ll buy the book to research nerd it.I’m your Man.

program15

15. I recently watched a YouTube speech called JFK’s last speech, the reason he was killed, he didn’t stick to the program, here it is The Secret Societies. 

So we have many choices of program to fill our lives up with, my advice, makes your unique and live the purpose you were put on the planet for.

Namaste until next time, Dear Friends.

Can you Feel the Noise?


Ever since I took on the life-purpose of radiating Love my feelings have been going haywire.Its like their noise level has increased and that I am meant to deal with them, one thing I was very good at not doing for a long , long time.

I had an experience on a tram the other day where a woman told me I belonged in a psychiatric ward for tapping my feet to the  music I was listening to. I felt it was my right to get angry and told her to Fuck off and that I would give her my psychiatrists number is she was disturbed by such minor things and to avoid school closure times when travelling.

So how do we relate and react to our feelings? Do we subdue them or let loose and lessen the hold they have over us. The world has many quotes on the subject of feelings and I like the 15 we are going to journey with todays: Lets begin.

feel1

1. I’ve been having these feeling again after a very, very long time of not allowing myself to. I’m still an amateur at it even though I am in my eldership years.

feel2

2. Those feelings you don’t want to have and wished they would go away, you had them for a reason. Breathe in, accept them and learn the lesson. Show The Tracks of My Tears.

feel3

3. I have been guilty of this for most of my life, as I suspect many of you reading this have been as well. They won’t go away unless they are accepted and expressed. So it’s not Silence is Golden.

feel4

4. The good old silent treatment, where you get to make up what is going on. Most times I go it wrong proving that this way of dealing with feelings is utter crap.

feel6

5. Out damn spot, denying it and trying to make them go away is the booby prize arena in the feelings stakes.

feel5

6. My friend Lissa Rankin talks about True fears and False fears, 90% of what we fear is never going to happen, its just our mind on full volume. Here’s a link to her page : The Fear Cure.

feel7

7. I have lost a few people in my life by not expressing my feelings. The latter statement os the result of not doing this.

feel8

8. Recently went through this, don’t know if she has forgotten me. gave her the choice to stay in contact, she declined. Feeling like this makes me think of Scary Monsters.

feel9

9. Moving on down the line, not really because those dang feeling are still somewhere lurking in my body and mind waiting for more playtime.

feel10

10. There is only one song that can go with this quote: Walk a Mile in my Shoes.

feel11

11. Declaration of this can have dire or gorgeous consequences dependant on what the other person’s reaction is.

feel12

12. Mind reading by any other name: If you could read my mind Love.

feel13

13. When people become media stars it is often forgotten that they have feelings to. Marilyn Monroe was hounded to her death as the sex symbol of her time.

feel14

14. How often have we thought or said, I thought I had dealt with that Feeling or Issue, yet her it is again raising its ugly head. Take it in your arms, my love. Feelings.

feel15

15. The flip flopping world of dealing with our feelings on a day to day basis. Will we ever make our mind up?

The things that make us distinct from each other, unique in our own right. Are we anything else but our feelings, I say that actions are also part of our makeup, but these are predicated by the former.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Is Reality the X Factor?


Looking for a subject today I notice The Green Guide: The best on Screen: Television, Streaming, Downloads & Radio was rating the reality TV judges. The Green Guide is the weekly entertainment section of our daily newspaper The Age, considered the more intelectual of the two papers that come out each day.

I cringed instantly that our society had sunk so low that this was considered news. What has become of mainstream society that this is what is considered entertainment for the masses. I checked out what people have quoted about reality over the years and have chosen a deft list to ponder. Here we go:

reality1

1. Each of us have our own reality, remember you are judging if you think your reality is more worthwhile than another persons.

reality2

2. Reality is that you will most likely end up with a partner at some stage in your life. I think that if you can achieve the above you are creating an awesome reality for the relationship.

reality3

3. Life is a game we all play at different levels, and we have our own unique devils. Meatloaf was one of mine: Bat out of Hell.

reality4

4. Growing up in rural country towns this above statements makes me relate to the time I went back to one of them as a Buddhist Calm Abiding meditation teacher. When I told people guess what they said?

reality5

5. From the first century A.D. Plutarch was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, known primarily for his Parallel Lives and Moralia. He is classified as a Middle Platonist. He had several other quotes which survived from that time, a famous one being: I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.

reality6

6. Lisa Prosen is a passionate Sensitivity Coach, Speaker, and Author.  She works with her clients so they can courageously look at their lives in new ways and navigate changes with new found confidence. She helps them learn to balance between their sensitivity and the things they are committed to accomplishing, so they achieve the life they truly want to live.  Founder of the popular Facebook group “Practical Solutions for The Highly Sensitive Soul”, Lisa is familiar with the shackles of perfectionism and how living life for other people, ultimately disappoints everybody.

reality7

7. Or as the bard would have put it, Out damn spot, reality doesn’t go away even though it is an illusion as all our life is according to the chaos theory.

reality8

8. I think they wrote this for mainstream media and what they present as the news. Control, mayhem and evil are not my reality and never will be.

reality9

9. Before enlightenment wash the dishes, after enlightenment wash the dishes, welcome to reality.

reality10

10. Robert J. Ringer is an American entrepreneur, motivational and political speaker, and author of several best-selling personal-development and political books. The best known of these is a semi quote to the Bard, To be or not to be Intimidated.

reality11

11. Our current reality keeps changing faster and faster. A quote I read recently made me shudder. If our children are not taught to be alone they will grow up only knowing how to be lonely. The above quotes lies in that arena for me.

reality12

12. Reality lives in the now according to Eckhart Tolle, but what does Beyonce have to say about it : Me, Myself and I.

reality13

13. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca or Seneca the Younger) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. He was tutor and later advisor to emperor Nero. While he was later forced to commit suicide for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero, the last of the Julio-Claudian emperors, he may have been innocent. He clearly suffered more from imagination if he was innocent.

reality14

14. The ubiquitous to do list, how many of us are honest enough to write the one on the right when it is our reality.

reality15 

15. This quote by Teal Scott supports my statement at the beginning of this blog. Society does now want to be aware, it would much rather remain in the illusory state that everything is OK as it is.

I have tried to drop judging society to much when writing this, Its just that I believe we were placed on this planet for more than what is churned out as mass entertainment these days.

Namaste until next Monday my dear friends.

Namaste2
