It’s a truth that while you can influence what you experience each day, you cannot control what happens. However, you can control how you relate to what happens. This simple idea can bring you great freedom!
When things are not to your liking just accept them as they are, even get to like them because they are part of your life journey – like them as they are. If you are dissatisfied with things as they are and discontented because things are not to your liking, you are in effect standing in your own way. You will … Continue Reading…
Here is a brief review of technology development and how Steven Vedro relates it to chakras: (from his blog)
Chakras: transponders (transmitter-responders)
1) I am – Telegraph, binary, RFID
2) Relationship – telephone
3) Gut, power – radio
4) Heart, codependence – TV
5) the grid, interconnectedness – Internet
6) attention, codes, encryption – Media files, security, DNA
also, deeper seeing, global perspective – Google earth
7) Divine, oneness – Pervasive computing
One of the speakers at the recent IONS (Noetics) conference was Steven Vedro (www.srvedro.com), author of Digital Dharma (Quest Books).
His blog covers some of the content and his view of the evolution of technology reflecting the evolution of consciousness, relating it to the 7 chakras or energy centers.
It also mentions some of his talks, but not the local one:
Steve will have an Author Talk and Book Signing

For as long as we have had records, we have sought to discover the ultimate truth. The basic facts on which everything else is based.
Over the ages, the most commonly held fundamental truths have varied widely. Today we consider ideas of a flat earth at the center of creation laughable. Science seeks the holy grail of physics, a single theory that covers all of the known laws, Unified Field.
The only problem is, they are leaving out huge hunks of our experience, such as the simple experience of who we are. How can a theory be ultimate truth if … Continue Reading…
One of things that the recent history of eastern teachers coming to the west has left out is healing the heart. In eastern cultures, there is more community and a greater focus on relationship. In the west, there is a much stronger focus on individuality, especially in North America.
As a result, the flow of meditation and related practices to the west has created a bit of a gap for many practitioners. There is an assumption that meditation will take care of everything. And to some extent this is true. What it leaves out though is that we live in … Continue Reading…
Many people are very ripe for waking and waking up is now very easy. The problem for many long term on the path is that they are seeking their ideas of what enlightenment is. They are using their mind to seek what is beyond mind and these expectations are getting in the way.
Self is very simple, natural, quiet.
So sometimes, an event comes up to shake us loose. Or the perfect things is heard. Or there is a teacher/vehicle that comes along and says – there it is. But really its usually a combination of things. And then … Continue Reading…
Judith is a highly intuitive Psychiatrist I met in Vancouver about a year ago. She gave a presentation on empathy and empathics. Recently, she has been releasing a series of short videos on YouTube.
“I’ll cover topics including intuition, dreams, transforming negative emotions, and how to tap the power within.”
Today, I’m pleased to offer “Intuitive Decision Making: The Power of Positive Intention.”
In recent explorations of the human growth and development cycle, it became apparent to me that each stage of the growth spiral requires a release. A letting go.
Letting go of the group to become the individual, letting go of dependency to become self-responsible, letting go of individuality to rejoin the whole. This cycle is reflected at various stages, such as the child letting go of the mother and the teenager breaking away from parents.
Thus, the growth cycle is about defining who we are uniquely, then rejoining the whole.
Soon, it becomes apparent that everything is either fullness or … Continue Reading…
“There is a saying in Zen, “When the realization is deep, your whole being is dancing.” For realization to be complete it has to hit on 3 levels – head, heart, and gut. You can have a very clear enlightened mind, but your being won’t be dancing. Then, when the heart starts to open along with the mind, your being starts to dance. Then everything comes alive. And when your gut opens up, there is that deep, deep, unfathomable stability where that opening, who is you, just died into transparency. You are dancing – the emptiness is dancing.”
— AdyaShanti, … Continue Reading…
“To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is not dependent upon things being a certain way, good, or bad. Watch any animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is. Observe its surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being.”
“Make it a habit to ask yourself: What’s going on inside me at this moment? That question will point you in the right direction. Don’t analyze, just watch. Focus your attention within. Feel the energy of the emotion. If there is no emotion present, take your … Continue Reading…
A key part of our experience of the world is in relationship. Relationship with lovers, parents, children, co-workers, and friends. And more importantly, relationship with ourselves. Who we conceive ourselves to be and how we relate that to the whole. That is the fundamental basis on which the rest of our experience is based.
Recently, I have observed how people will respond when they meet a very happy person. Often, they will assume the person is in love. One then realizes that the only time some people have ever been truly happy was when they had first “fallen” in love. … Continue Reading…
Inherent within all life and laws of nature is Intention. Directed consciousness. Energy with direction.
“[T]here’s a kind of intention, a kind of goal-directedness inherent in the very nature of life in the most fundamental processes that enable embryos to grow and even protein molecules to form. And I think that the kind of conscious intention we experience as part of our mental life has its background in this goal-directedness which is inherent in all living creatures, and is an essential part of the nature of life and an essential part of the nature of the organizing fields that … Continue Reading…
