Take This Simple Step to Know Your True Self

Take This Simple Step to Know Your True Self

The tiny seed of Truth is found in every human being. Similarly to the seed of a tree, the tiny seed contains great potentials. If the spiritual Seeker protects and nourishes that tiny seed, it will grow into the mighty tree of Truth. But it can only protect and nourish it, if it’s aware of its existence. How can the spiritual seeker realize this, and how can the Truth be revealed?

The World of the Forms and Shapes

A lot of people are unaware of that, and they try to find the Truth outside themselves, in the world of forms and shapes, wishing to make forms eternal. So the modest little seed in us stays dormant, waiting for better times. The better times come when the spiritual Seeker realizes that all the external shapes and forms are transitory, so they turn their attention from the world of shapes to the internal world. Under the effect of turning inward, the small seed begins to sprout, and it starts slowly growing. I revitalizes the spiritual Seeker, and a deep desire arises in them to see the flower that the small seed may become.

The Illusion of Time and Space

“It is you who are moving, not time. Time has no movement. There is only One Moment.” ~ Bashar

Like a lot of things about this reality we experience, linear time is simply a very convincing illusion. It is an illusion created by consciousness. In fact, so is “space”. Closely related to the idea of “time” is the notion of “linear causality” — A causes B causes C. This notion is also just a very convincing illusion.

The reality that we are experiencing is by no means an “objective reality” as most people presume. It is more like what we would conceive of as a virtual reality, but one with some very interesting rules.

Let’s briefly review the basics about what you and the universe really are, and then we’ll dive into the how and why of the time and space illusions.

The Multidimensional Self: An Exploration of Reality, the Soul and the Highest Self

Whether you know it or not, you are a multidimensional being of staggering proportions. You are more than meets the eye, much more — more than your body, more than your soul, in fact, you are an integral part of the Universe. You are present on many levels of reality simultaneously and more powerful than you have ever imagined. Are you ready to expand your concept of selfhood to include higher selves, other/parallel selves, and probable selves? If so then, let’s dive in!

Most of us are familiar with the idea of the soul — the conception that our bodies are transient physical vessels for an eternal energetic aspect of our consciousness, which is our true essence. Conventional science dismisses this idea, and so do many people. I’m assuming that you probably embrace it since you were attracted to this article. You’re not alone; many people feel the presence of something greater within themselves. And as the great shift in the consciousness of humanity accelerates more and more people are feeling and connecting to it.

Honor Your Intuition. Here’s How…

There’s a lot of buzz about the benefits of tuning into your intuition. We know that intuition helps us make spiritually-aligned decisions, protects us from danger, acts as our inner doctor, gives us the heads-up when we are needed by our loved ones, and serves as the unseen world’s secret gateway to the human world, helping us live our best lives.

But how do you know if you’re tuned in or not? We all have the capacity to listen to our intuition, but sometimes we’re at the mercy of forces that block our ability to interpret our intuition clearly.

Here are eight signs that your intuition may be blocked, plus ten tips to help you tap into it.

Why Die Consciously?

Why Die Consciously?

September 7th, 2016

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Death – it comes to us all. We all know this, but how many of us have really explored our deaths?

What I’m about to say may shock you – but in many ways, those who get some advanced warning of their deaths through terminal prognosis – they are the lucky ones! Of course many of you in this situation will definitely not be feeling lucky and I completely understand. A life shattered, knowing that it will all come to an end so soon, can be one of the hardest things for a person to deal with. But let me explain why these people are ‘lucky’. It’s not because of the suffering they may go through, but because of the tremendous opportunity they have.

Death as an opportunity

Going through life we hit many small ‘deaths’ along the way. Loss of loved ones, relationships and jobs, and more profoundly, loss of health, abilities and identities. Even if these things are only temporary, they provide a great opportunity for exploration of dying, in which we will ultimately lose all of these things.

The Archons (“Are Cons”): Borg Consciousness versus Human Divinity

The Archons (“Are Cons”): Borg Consciousness versus Human Divinity

4th September 2016

By Justin K. Marlatt

Guest writer for Wake Up World

This universe has been raped and pillaged by a Borg Consciousness [1] known to us as the Archons, or as I like to call them, the “Arecons”. But we humans have a very special mission to fulfill, to heal and uplift the entire universe and each other. We are divine frequency generators, the antithesis to duality — and this is why the Archons fear us.

The Arecons have no divine spark and are a byproduct of the holographic creatrix; we humans are not, our place is in the divine pleroma, the higher realms. Duality has two poles, negative and positive, good and evil, light and dark. This binary system of 1’s and 0’s is the energy that currently courses throughout our universal schema, and the Arecons will stop at nothing to keep it this way.

Why? We humans and our Mother, Terra, Sophia, are ternary beings, that which is beyond duality and encompasses the all. This is the reason why we humans and our Mother have attracted so many different galactic denizens to our front doors, some seek our assistance in healing, some seek to end us because of what we represent, unification and the end of duality itself. However, the Borg Consciousness travels the galaxy indoctrinating different races into binary systems for the purpose of thwarting the expansion of divine consciousness. And it has only one concern — survival, at any cost, through the perpetuation of duality.

Pristine Consciousness: The Canvas Upon Which Life Expresses Itself

Pristine Consciousness: The Canvas Upon Which Life Expresses Itself

31st August 2016

By Harry Krueger

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

The bonding of the pristine whole (energy) with Intelligence (the mysterious expression of all that exists) is the only environment in which human beings can flower, and come to completeness. That fruition (as wholeness) is love. There is no other love. And that whole-y state is one of apperception — a perception that is beyond the aberrations of the memory-senses complex called, Mind.

Our thoughts are not self-generated, rather, our present responses to life’s daily challenges are a cacophony of sounds given to us by the prevailing culture. Except for some slight variations in content, we are the psychological clones of past generations. The accumulation of that misinformation (indoctrination) is what we call ‘culture’, and all culture is Mind: a myth given by others. The over-whelming false content of the Mind is what is preventing pristine awareness (Consciousness) from receiving its “daily bread” — the food that is indispensable to life’s daily responses.

From Above and Below: Hyperdimensional Revelations

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Why is the world the way it is? What is my purpose on this earth? What is spirit? What is God? What is the archetypal myth that I’m living?

Over the course of my life these questions have emerged and keep emerging. As I’ve walked my path, I realised more and more that I don’t know anything and yet it is all right there, hidden in plain sight. I live in a constant mystery embedded in an eternal present. The energy moves and flows. The mind is like an empty singing bowl that can be filled with many thoughts. You can empty the bowl only by stopping to identify with these thoughts. When you hit the empty bowl with the stick, the sound vibrates into eternity, as I become part of the whole. My identification with “I”, who I “think” I am ceases to be and washes away into infinity. The stars and planets dance, the birds are singing, the water flows and the sun emerges again and I’m still here on this earth… in this world.

The Mandala: The Sacred Geometry of Meditation

The Mandala: The Sacred Geometry of Meditation

26th August 2016

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

A mandala is a visual symbol often utilized in meditation practices and teachings. The mandala symbol itself is a geometric construction of geometric points, lines, planes and solids which symbolizes our universe. These geometric symbols can be used as a visual meditation tool, called a yantra. Other designs can similarly be used as meditation tools, but may not be mandalas by definition.

Mandalas and all other yantras work as visual meditation points of concentration. Pictured (top) is the sri yantra: sri meaning ‘king’ or ‘most important’. Ancient yogis of India and Tibet considered it to be the most powerful of all geometric symbols, representing the geometric structure of the sound of creation — the Om.

Conversely, a mantra is the audio version of the mandala; an aural meditation tool. Whether the sound of the mantra is a single syllable tone, such as the Om, or a series of metaphysical musings, such as the ancient Gayatri Mantra, mantras are wavy linear expressions of universal connection, voiced as concentrated sound vibrations.

Reading Signs and Synchronicity on the Spiritual Path

Reading Signs and Synchronicity on the Spiritual Path

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

As you inquire deeper into the real meaning of the moment, and of your life’s purpose, you’ll start to pick up signs and synchronicity, where the field seems to magically click in around you, as if by some pre-ordained force. What’s going on here? How might you best understand, and work with, the signs? They are powerful pointers to your journey of evolution, which we will explore here. This exploration also contains a video in the new Openhand Philosophy series.

Moving into Harmony

We live in a world that has become very disconnected from the divine flow. Humanity has created a system based on logical rules and regulations. Conditioning causes people to expect things to work a certain way, and to struggle for some desired outcome. All of this intentioning cuts across the natural flow of life. The result is, everything appears random and haphazard; there’s no apparent deeper meaning and therefore there’s a perceived need to try to control life, to get some kind of outcome.

Letting Go of a World in Collapse: The Conversation We’re Too Afraid to Have

Letting Go of a World in Collapse: The Conversation We’re Too Afraid to Have

23rd August 2016

It’s Over.

Over the past few months I’ve been feeling a deeper sense of grief over the state of the world with the accelerating breakdown that is playing out in every aspect of life on Earth. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to navigate this Gaia Grief as I call it, knowing that everything I love so dearly — animals and the natural world — are being mindlessly consumed, commoditized and destroyed with entitled abandon. Joanna Macy calls this breakdown The Great Unraveling. The word that resonates most with me is collapse.

I’m blessed to live in a stunning location that is energetically charged by rainforests, mountains and ocean. I live in a state of perpetual awe for the beauty that still remains in this part of the world. As such, I’m aware of the “thinness” of this magnificent place, where the veil between the physical and non-physical world is virtually non-existent. Unlike a city with its denuded, unnatural landscape and the incessant noise from honking cars, blaring music, car alarms, machines, construction, techno-distraction, and the mental static of worry, busyness, fatigue, anxiety, and irritation, Earth energy is much easier to feel here — especially for the energetically sensitive like myself. I feel what is unseen and unheard by the collective, and which is subsequently ignored and denied by our culture. The Sunshine Coast is a true barometer for what’s really occurring in the world on a non-physical level. For me, this is truth.

How Does a Paradigm Shift in One Generation? 5 Lessons From the Psychedelic Renaissance

How Does a Paradigm Shift in One Generation? 5 Lessons From the Psychedelic Renaissance

21st August 2016

By Dr. Kelly Neff

Guest writer for Wake Up World

We are living in tense times where the push for progress is clashing with the establishment and traditional ways of thinking. This has all got me wondering, how does a paradigm actually change? How do shifts in attitudes lead to real changes in policy and society? Looking back on many of my past radio shows, I’m noticing that by examining the emerging ‘psychedelic renaissance we can uncover some very valuable lessons about what it really takes to shift a culture’s understanding, attitudes and politics. (For more about the Psychedelic Renaissance, check out this book!)

Arguably, the strides made in psychedelic research and the push towards legal psychedelic medicine over the past 50 years (and especially during the past 15 years) can be considered some of the greatest paradigmatic shifts of our time. For example, just in my short lifetime, I have witnessed cannabis transition from an absolutely illegal substance, to a fully legal recreational commodity in states like Colorado (even though it still sits on the DEA Schedule 1 narcotic list). As a psychologist, I have even offered my services as a volunteer in the MAPS (The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) phase 2 clinical trials for MDMA psychotherapy, where I stayed overnight in the office/treatment center supervising participants who had completed the study.
