THE TRUTH ABOUT CHANGE

I love change and have always been the one to feel excitement for anyone moving away or leaving a job, thrilled for the potential that adventurous people create in their lives. Thus, it’s no surprise that I feel some frustration when I see stagnation, lack of movement and fear of change–especially when there is complaining associated with it. One of the greatest illusions concerning change is that it is too often associated with imbalance. We sometimes think that change will throw our whole life out of whack, but the opposite is closer to the truth. Positive change (and we know … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT CHANGE

The Truth About Awareness

I think about the word awareness often and it occurred to me that not everyone understands it in the same way. For some it is an ability to discern truth buried amongst falsehoods and misinformation. For others it is something imposed on us by a system that always seems to be telling us about things it thinks we have no clue or opinion about. Unlike grassroots education that can utilize symbolic imagery, awareness is rarely brought about through government or corporate sponsorship and is not about colored ribbons we can pin to our chests or rubber bracelets that tell everyone … Continue reading The Truth About Awareness

The Truth About Role Play

This morning I went to Youtube and my account was logged out so I was seeing the site as it is presented to anyone going there for the first time. None of my followed channels or interests showed up, just the stuff that they want to impose on whoever goes to the site. No surprise that the hand-picked offerings were pure distraction and vapid uselessness. But among the very mainstream and overhyped timewasters were a number of channels and topics devoted to Role Play. At first I found this odd that it should factor so high up on their programming … Continue reading The Truth About Role Play

The Truth About Deception

I had a dream in which I discovered that someone I admired and was learning valuable information from was a heartless serial killer. The dream coincided with my reading a book about familiar spirits and the possibility of good or bad influences communicating with us in our dreams. I took the dream to mean that I was possibly being deceived by an entity that wanted me to have doubt about something I cared about, or perhaps my subconscious brought out doubt that was already there. Who can be sure when it comes to these things, but the timing of the … Continue reading The Truth About Deception

The Truth About Influences

Are our influences creating balance in our lives or are they suppressing our natural instincts? A parent’s job is to influence their children in a positive way so that they become stable people who can then positively contribute to society. We benefit from those who influence and encourage us and we become better people for it. Our influences today are generally not geared toward our personal growth, wisdom and knowledge.  In the modern world, influence is pressed upon us to form our opinions regarding things far removed from spirit or attainment of a higher sense of self. Social Media anoints … Continue reading The Truth About Influences

The Truth About Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not for wimps and it’s not about choosing between letting go or revenge. The greatest strength of will and character is needed to forgive. On one hand it entails addressing pain caused by trusted loved ones or confidants and on the other, the violations imposed on us by low vibration people whose sole purpose is to take from others and further their own selfish agendas.  Forgiveness is deeply tied to our emotional investments and physical disturbances that cause discomfort. Forgiveness does not mean having to identify with those who violate us or to allow bad behavior to keep … Continue reading The Truth About Forgiveness

The Truth About Avoidance

Avoidance exists on a scale.  There are significant avoidances and everyday avoidances. Avoidance of doing the dishes is only significant if there is a pattern of avoidance which leads to disorder in one’s life and living amongst chaos. Significant avoidances make us uncomfortable. They are the things that pressure us into behaviors and ways of thinking that we don’t like. Not because they are bad, but because they are undeveloped and unfamiliar. The funny thing about avoidances is that they can’t exist without good intentions first opening the door for them to manifest. Now there are many reasons we avoid … Continue reading The Truth About Avoidance

The Truth About Suffering

Have you noticed how so many people seem to be suffering? I’m talking mostly about people who have not even had the life experiences of war, suffered lack or real anguish-inducing times. People now ‘suffer’ when they are deprived of wi-fi, when their Instagram uploads don’t get enough ‘likes’ or when someone voices a contrary opinion. The threshold of suffering has plummeted and our programming has allowed for us to accept it as normal. I don’t want to sound as if I have all the answers to why we suffer because I don’t, but my sources reveal that those who … Continue reading The Truth About Suffering

The Truth About Loss

Have you ever noticed how when some people suffer a loss, large or small, they often think that there was no ‘reason’ for it, as if actual reasoning had been spent on wondering why things play out in their lives in the way that they do? The thing is, nature doesn’t need to give you a reason, it just is. Dealing with the pain of loss requires an elevated consciousness. It requires a more balanced mind, body and spirit to accept that losses have usually restored balance, karmic or otherwise. Even our own actions often result in losses that we … Continue reading The Truth About Loss

The Truth About Self-Deception

THE TRUTH ABOUT SELF-DECEPTION. The difficulty with self-deception is that even if we know we are deluding ourselves it is incredibly hard to accept because the cause of much of our delusions got their start by believing in something that had been passed on to us by people we love and/or trusted–these people wear many hats. And it’s not that they all did this deliberately, but it shows how deep self-deception goes and how it can easily morph into delusion. Once we’ve accepted something as an absolute truth it creates a blockage that makes it extremely difficult to overcome and … Continue reading The Truth About Self-Deception
