Engagement 3 – Deeper

Engagement 3 – Deeper

This is a fascinating process, to blog as the discovery unfolds. Usually, I will write and explore myself, then share when a sense of completeness is there or the mind catches up with the deeper knowing. In this case there was an urge to express early and it was a key understanding. One could write a book on just these few posts. The missing link in all that law of attraction stuff. Had to go back and X out one statement in Engagement 2 that was incorrect. Samyama leads into Engagement but is not the same thing. Meanwhile, over at … Continue Reading…

The Push

The Push

Under the world of appearances, consciousness flows. The very stuff of our being moves and shifts in a kaleidoscope of possibility as awareness explores the infinite within Itself. That movement we experience as the shifting expression we call the world, as well as our shifting internal landscapes. To see the flow, we first have to see through the illusion. Wake up to who we are, then come to discover the reality of what is. Then the flow can be literally seen, like a current and waves flowing through the apparently solid but actually alive world. Sometimes, I used to get … Continue Reading…

Deepest Being

Back on the post How Deep?, I asked if it was going too deep to try and define what gives rise to existence in a blog format like this. In comments here and over at Takuin.com, it became apparent the real issue is if one can offer clarity in a short article. Certainly there are those sutras of wisdom like ‘All this is That’ or ‘everything is Being’. They offer clarity in the moment but not a framework with which to understand the world we experience. A context that can satisfy the mind to get it out of the way. … Continue Reading…

How Deep?

I was taking a bit more of a look around Takuin.com and came across his article on Being. He answers the question what is being? But we can then ask what is the source of being? What comes before existence? I drafted a response post but on first read wonder if its, as the blog name suggests, too deep. Explaining the source of being requires a framework for the whole enchilada, a picture that took a whole chapter to explain. A chapter thats at the end of the book, after much prior framework building. This rather comes to the core … Continue Reading…

Intention requires

Just listening to the second short free workshop by Lynne McTaggart on Intention. http://www.theintentionworkshops.com/ While they are an intro to a workshop intensive series coming, they cover some great material. In the talk she suggests Intention requires: – compassion – specific (exact and actual) – surrender – resonance with other – community It was interesting to hear her having discovered a few things I’ve also found. Always refreshing to hear good ideas spoken out and being heard. I speak about the value of gratitude for example. I find its a first step towards compassion. Compassion requires a higher level of … Continue Reading…

Egos and Cults

A few days ago, I posted an article about recently published research in the American Journal of Hypertension that demonstrated meditation as a useful tool in lowering blood pressure. Frankly, I’m surprised there is still any question on the subject. To a meditator, this is like asking if food will help you feel full. This was established 30 years ago but doesn’t fit the model nor comfort zone of what the medical establishment knows how to work with. But I digress. The article mentions transcendental meditation as the technique studied. TM is quite commonly studied as its practitioners are widely … Continue Reading…

The 17th Principle

You’ve probably heard of Napoleon Hill. In the early part of the last century he spent 20 years, at Andrew Carnegie’s request, researching how the very successful achieve their success. He wrote a best seller, Think and Grow Rich, back in the late ’30’s. In the book he wrote of 16 principles of success, the foundation of wealth and achievement. He gave detailed instructions for making them part of your life. Many people of both my parents and my own generation have read the book. Many people achieved great success as a result. But many also did not. So he … Continue Reading…

Switchwords

Ran into something interesting today, from a Brazilian contact. Its called Switchwords, basically a seed word to trigger a specific result. Like for finding keys or getting a ride. This is not unlike the idea of a root mantra, but more targeted at need. A one word affirmation, in certain ways. Some people evidently swear by it. Its also worth noting the process of Samyama, outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra. Basically if you combine Self-awareness with open allowing consciousness, then have a specific thought, the result will occur. Much the same way, these are not about trying. The … Continue Reading…

Morphic Fields

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the concept of Morphic fields and their consequences. http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/papers/morphic/morphic_intro.html “memory is inherent in nature” “Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.” “How are these fields inherited? I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance.” “The fields organizing the activity of the nervous system are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species.” “The resonance of a brain with its own past states also … Continue Reading…

Psychoenergetics

ORBS: ARE THEY A PSYCHOENERGETIC PHENOMENON? By William A. Tiller, Ph.D. [Professor Emeritus of Materials Science, Stanford University]             Psychoenergetic science is traditional science expanded to incorporate human consciousness as a significant experimental variable. This is because today’s quantum mechanical paradigm, as it is presently formalized, is totally incapable of dealing with any psychoenergetic process and humans are all about such processes. From our past 10 years of psychoenergetic science research, the items relevant to this lecture are the following: 1.      Most importantly, we have discovered that there are two unique levels of … Continue Reading…

Simple Life

No, I don’t mean the TV show. I’m talking about the satisfying life, well considered. For many of us in North America, we’ve fallen into the cultural trap of consumerism.  Our culture is awash in images of the impossibly thin, rich, and perfect. Our heros have become examples of excess and despair. Sometimes, life throws us a curve. A challenge. And a place where we can stop and smell the roses. Reconsider what is important for us and who we really are. Are we condemed to run the rat race to buy ever more consumer goods, chasing a false God … Continue Reading…
