Happy New Year

December 31, 2008

Our message for today is very simple.  First, I want to wish everyone a very happy New Year.  Next, I have a list of people I want to thank for their work and assistance during the past year.  Finally, we are taking a short year end break.  See below for the details.

 

Happy New Year

I wish everyone a happy, prosperous, and successful new year.  I hope everyone continues on their path towards being their true self.  The road can become difficult and there are many distractions.  I offer my help to you in any way you think I might be able to assist you.

 

Year end thanks

Here is a list of just a few of the people who have been important to helping me on my path this year.

 

Oprah Winfrey & Eckhart Tolle:  Earlier this year Oprah & Eckhart collaborated on a series of videos that taught us how to be in the moment.  This series of videos was very important to me.  They helped me make a great deal of progress on my path.  I hope they have helped you, or will help you on your path as well.

 

Judy Kovecses:  Judy has become a wonderful friend and confidant this year.  She has offered her house for a Tuesday morning discussion group that has been instrumental in allowing me to explain some of the background that has brought me down my unique path.  Judy also shares my passions for food.  We have exchanged many of our favorite food items.  Judy – thanks for being such a great friend.

 

Gayle Dulcey:  Gayle has run a Course in Miracles discussion group in Doylestown, PA for several years.  I have been attending this Thursday afternoon group for almost two years.  This group has become a wonderful weekly discussion of a wide range of spiritual topics.  The group has chosen to share their experience on their path with each other.  This sharing has helped everyone who attends to learn, and then apply what they have learned.  Gayle – thanks for your commitment and effort in keeping this group active.

 

These are just a few of the people that I should be thanking.  However, there just is neither the time nor space here to make those thanks.  For all of you that are not on this list – thanks for all that you have done to help me and many others on our paths this year.

 

Year end break

We are going to take a short year end break.  Our next post will be on Monday, January 5, 2009.  Have a safe and happy New Year holiday!

 

Until Monday –

 

Es kava turen hai

We work towards an identical goal.

Recognizing Our True Self – Releasing Attachments

August 8, 2008

Housekeeping

We start today with a bit of housekeeping.  For our readers who subscribe by email – you may not have received yesterday’s post.  Our subscription service has been doing some maintenance and the post might have slipped through the cracks.  If you missed yesterday’s post please click here.  Today’s post is based on what was said yesterday.

 

Thankful Friday

Our custom is to take a minute each Friday to thank those around us.  Today we would like to thank Oprah Winfrey for the work she is doing.  Her extended webcast discussion with Eckhart Tolle about his book “A New Earth” has been helpful to many individuals.  You can also obtain podcast versions of this webcast series and many of her XM Radio broadcasts on ITunes.  We have no financial or other relationship with Oprah Winfrey or Eckhart Tolle.  We only want to thank them for their work.

 

Next we would like to thank our readers who take the time from their busy days to read these posts.  We hope what we are saying is helping you to live a happier life.  Please let us know what else we can do to help you achieve your goal of that happier life.

 

Finally we would like to thank WordPress and FeedBurner for providing the free services that make this site possible.  Thanks!

 

Recap

Yesterday we looked at the false self and its attachments.  We talked about a few common attachments and got a feeling for how unhappy we become when we live a life controlled by those attachments.

 

We ended the post by recognizing that we have all asked ourselves at one time or another “Isn’t there a better way?”  The idea I was attempting to raise was that we have all looked at out lives and recognized our unhappiness.  We have all said there must be a way to be more happy.

 

There is.  Let’s go find it!

 

True Self Sees Through the Attachments

One of the points that I am attempting to convey on this site is that we have never been totally disconnected from our true self.  It has always been there giving us guidance.  We have not listened to it for a variety of reasons, but it has always been there.

 

One of the best ways to recognize that the true self has been attempting to guide our life is when we step back and ask the question “Isn’t there a better way?”  Remember, true self is the observer.  When we ask this kind of a question we are asking it from the perspective of true self.  True self is observing our life and our attachments and is attempting to tell false self that there is a better way.  The problem comes with the answers to the question.

 

A Tangle of Interlocking Attachments

When we ask a question like “Isn’t there a better way?” we always get an answer.  That answer may be drowned out by the false self chatter, it may be an answer that we do not like, and it may be an answer that we cannot yet understand.  However, we always get an answer.

 

Let’s take a look at an example of a question that most of us have asked at one time or another about a relationship which we were in when we asked the question.  The relationship has become unhappy and we ask “Isn’t there a better way?”  The question we actually asked was probably a bit different, but the spirit was the same.  We wanted to find a way back to happiness.

 

Let’s take an answer to that question and look at some of the possible interlocking attachments that might have kept us from either accepting the answer or doing anything about making a choice for happiness.

 

So we ask our question and we get the answer that we need to end our relationship with this person and move on with our life.  True self has recognized that this relationship will not bring us happiness.  Now false self has to sort through its attachments to determine if it wants to end the relationship.  That sounds silly, but that is what happens.

 

A few common attachments that false self may have are things like “What will people think?”, “Where will I find someone else?”, “This person provides my security, how will I replace that?”  Does anyone see a pattern in these questions?  Raise your hand if you do.

 

That is correct.  All these questions have to do with some external situation.  Caring about what other people will think has become more important than finding our happiness.  Finding someone else implies that we are unable to exist without a close personal relationship.  For us to be “whole” we need someone else.  Clinging to someone because they provide security is saying that we do not have the power or ability to provide our own security.

 

Each of these attachments is looking to some external situation for something which can only be found inside.  True self provides our security.  True self does not need anyone else to be whole; it is already whole, thank you very much.  True self does not care what people think.

 

True self knows that other true selves will be supportive of its actions.  Someone else’s false self may castigate us for breaking up a relationship, but their true self will recognize that we are choosing for our happiness.  Who do we want to listen to, their supportive true self or their judgmental false self?

 

Learning to See the Attachments

In this example I am not trying to say that real life is not more complicated than the few attachments we have looked at.  However, this is entirely representative of actual situations.  In fact here are many more attachments that we deal with when we have to break up a relationship.  If there were only these three then breaking up would be easy to do.

 

The point here is that we need to start to see the attachments.  Not just when we ask true self for guidance regarding a relationship, but any time we recognize that we are unhappy.  Remember, as soon as we see that we are unhappy we have begun observing from true self.  The answers will be associated with pursuing our happiness and releasing attachments.  Please learn to at least hear the answers, even if you cannot yet do anything with the answers by releasing the attachments.  Eventually you will be able to utilize them, so for now at least listen to them.

 

Once again, this is a skill that will take a bit of time to master.  It starts with recognizing this pattern:

 

  1. Without recognizing it we get caught in an attachment.
  2. We become unhappy.
  3. We recognize that we are unhappy.
  4. We realize that when we recognize that we are unhappy we have become the observer.  Once we have become the observer our perspective is that of true self.
  5. True self will always have answers that will resolve our unhappiness.  We need to listen to those answers because they will tell us to release some of our attachments.
  6. If we cannot yet do anything with those answers, we need to at least acknowledge that they exist.
  7. Practice, practice, practice.

 

That is all for today, and this week.  Please learn to recognize that voice of true self that is telling you to let go of your attachments.  I want you to find your happiness sooner than I found mine.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Until next week –

How do We Prepare for Rebalancing? pt 1

July 3, 2008


Recap

This week we have heard about how other planets prepare for rebalancing.  We discussed how evolved planets plan for and adjust to rebalancing.  We touched on how evolving planets are assisted during rebalancing.

 

Our next two posts will explain how we can learn to adjust to the planetary rebalancing that will be taking place here.

 

What Do We Do?

As we have seen in our last few posts there are many moving pieces involved in a planetary rebalancing.  We have looked at scenarios where the population of the planet is very small compared to ours, the people are aware of the rebalancing, and they willingly work with the situations as they occur.  That seems like a pretty tall order for this planet to achieve at this time.  What is the best way for Crystal, Indigo, and Star Children to start preparing for the rebalancing?

 

As we have worked with our own personal advancement during the past thirty years we have struggled to find the best way to explain what is going on.  We have also searched for the best medium.  This may not be the best way to explain things, and it may not be the best medium, but now it is more important to get started than continue to “try” to find the best time and place.

 

Stay in the Moment

It may seem trite.  It may sound simplistic.  You may see more important things that need to be done.  You may feel that there must be better ways to do this job.  However, we have yet to find a better first step.

 

An earlier blog post talked about staying in the moment.  We still cannot stress strongly or frequently enough the importance of staying in the moment.  This is still the most important thing that we can do to cope with the coming disruptions.

 

As inhabitants of this planet our primary objective needs to be to stay in the now.  Being present, stay in the moment, be here now; however you phrase the concept it is the same thing.  This idea has been the primary focus of many spiritual and religious disciplines for many centuries.

 

When we are in the moment our fears have no sway over us.  That will be an important asset as the major disruptions become frequent.  Also, when we are in the moment our actions are no longer fear based.  By acting out of confidence rather than fear we will be effective, not counterproductive.

 

When we are in the moment we will see the rebalancing for what it is – a part of a natural cycle that this planet needs to complete.  When we are not in the moment we will feel the need to fight the rebalancing.  The natural forces that will sweep across this planet will be far greater than we can imagine.  If we are not in the moment we will become fearful and lose control of ourselves.  Then we will not be able to help anyone, especially ourselves.

 

Once again – stay in the moment.  If you do nothing more in preparation for the rebalancing than learn to stay in the moment then you will be far more prepared than almost everyone else on the planet.

 

As mentioned elsewhere on this blog, the best instruction on how to stay in the moment that we have recently seen has come from Eckhart Tolle.  His book “A New Earth” has helped many people.  Oprah Winfrey did a series of 10 videos that were 90 minutes in length.  You can find these videos at Oprah’s Book Club.  You will need to register with the site to view the videos.  These are excellent learning tools because they involve viewers calling in and discussing questions at length with Oprah and Eckhart.  We highly recommend this series of videos as the best way to learn to stay in the moment that we have seen in a long time.

 

We are not affiliated at this time with either Eckhart Tolle or Oprah Winfrey.  We receive no incentive whatsoever from recommending their books and videos.  We sincerely think the concepts they convey are important for everyone on this planet to be learning at this time.

 

Tomorrow

As is becoming our Friday custom, tomorrow we will take a moment to thank those around us.  It is so easy to get caught up in the perceived importance of everything that we do not take the time to express our thanks.  We will attempt to remember to do that each Friday and whenever else we find it appropriate.

 

We will also write a few paragraphs about the Independence Day celebration in the United States.  Those on whose shoulders we are standing were adamant about freedom and have inspired countless individuals on this planet in the last 230 years.

 

Finally, we will get back to the main purpose of the blog.  We will see how the concept of acceptance is crucial to dealing with disruptions that are coming our way.
