There is a voice in your head, it is pretending to be you. But when the voice is silent and the thought has vanished are you still there?Read More
The reality is that every single word, every single teaching, is specifically set up to keep people firmly entrenched in Maya. There is no word or technique that can liberate. Teachers will fall back on “well there is a good pointer”. That’s nonsense as well. If there were great pointers people would be truly waking up left, right and centre. Yet there has never been a culture of waking up, there has only been a culture of pretending to wake up.
Everything in the universe is designed to entrench in Maya, it’s not designed to liberate. There are no exceptions to this ever.
This is what people do not want to hear or understand…Read More
One day I will write all these tips down, I have so many of them…
If you want to improve your memory recall and ability to focus, doodle… Counter Intuitive I know, yet this what the research has indicated. Doodling will increase those qualities by about 29 percent for most people.
Doodling is one of the more efficacious techniques in this regard. There are several theories as to why it works, but at some level it seems that doodling occupies our unconscious mind and stops it from drifting to far. The non taxing nature of doodling could allow a person to still keep a decent conscious track of what is going on.Read More
I am fond of putting things to the test and encourage people to do the same. This one is about discovering what does not work as much as what does. It has to do with intention and problem solving and the art of letting go. You may have noticed that often when we let go of a problem the solution magically appears. It might appear in a dream or in a bath or a long walk. It has happened a number of times in my life and I know it has occurred in other people’s lives as well. So let us see if we can work out what we might be able to use more productively from that phenomena.
Step 1: Identify the problem which needs to be solved. It should be a very clear identification.
Step 2: Instruct your subconscious mind / unconscious helper / inner child / higher self / whatever to please solve the problem. Put the heat on it and time limit it. I suggest 24 hours, at least one night’s good sleep at a minimum.
Step 3. Forget about it. This is where self-discipline really comes in to play. It has to be a real letting go, just like when we let go of a problem and resolve to sleep or relax.
Step 4: Sit down and free associate with the intention of accessing the solution the unconscious has found. A good attitude is to be playful and open. Also be a little persistent as usually it takes a few attempts at least for something to really flow.
Step 5: Be grateful!
If nothing came of it, backtrack it. Pay attention to what went through your mind. Doubt is often the killer as is fear. See if there were moments of doubt and fear. This exercise even if it does not work in terms of solving the problem should at the very least facilitate an understanding of how much doubt and fear is revolving around the problem. If there is a discovery of some blocks then attempt to resolve them.
Try the exercise again. When it does work, then also dissect it. What was different about you when it worked to when it did not work?Read More
The second hardest fantasy to relinquish is the belief that there is someone out there to fix us, to take care of us and to spare us the hard journey of discovery.Read More
