To Go Beyond The Mind

To ‘go beyond the mind’, you have to know that you have ‘mind’.  You have to understand what ‘beyond’ means and then actually go there.  This can take years.  The practice of ‘going beyond the mind’ is endless, as is mind.  Mind will nag, talk about whatever, whenever, wherever it likes, regardless, regarding less and less, your likes and dislikes.  In fact if mind is allowed to roam free, it will override your life and run it into the ground with incessant chatter.  Like an energy vampire, it will suck your blood and all the air from your relationships, including and most importantly your relationship with self, if you invite it in.  Now if you can see ‘mind’ as ‘mind’, if you can identify it, catch it while it is talking to you, ask yourself, ‘Who is saying that?’ you have half a chance.  The trick is to watch, look for mind popping up, see it, observe it and in the very observing, change the equation.  Locate when and how it chooses to direct your energy and you’ve added a new dimension to the experience you call life, you’ve become aware.  Aware that ‘mind’ is ‘mind.’  This awareness alone is a game changer.  Thanks for playing.

The Causation of Cosmos

The world exists as potential and as we experience it, it becomes, comes into existence when we view it.  As we view it.  We are the causation of the cosmos coming into being.  The universe is in actuality, the ‘You’ niverse.  Because it is our seeing that causes it to pop into view.  That we are able to see, makes it see-able.  And that which we are viewing, through the filter of Who Am I, spectrum of light and voice, the song that we sing, is the verse and the you, in the you-ni-verse.

Matter that Matters

What if you knew that mind was mind?  What if you knew that mind was mind and it issued thought form?  What if you knew that mind issued thought form thousands of times a day?  What if you knew that mind’s purpose was to issue thought form, regardless of content?  What if you knew that thought form is energy, mass, matter that matters?  What if you truly knew that mind was mind, thought form, form, and indeed the form mattered?  What if you knew you had a choice to manage mind and create new thought form, thought form more productive, more pleasing to the self?  Who would you be if mind did not run the show?  What would that look like?

Why Not Change the Meaning?

Storytelling/Meaning Making: Taking the elements of life’s story, the plot pieces and making meaning from them that grows you, takes you from victim of circumstance to empowered storyteller, able to expand and see yourself involved in events for the purpose of growing you. There is a warning that you don’t ask to grow patience for fear that you be delivered lots of frustrating circumstance. But if you see the frustrating circumstance as that which enables you to grow the muscular structure to have a better life due to your amazing patience, be a stronger person, or just plain enjoy yourself more, why not change the meaning so you are satisfied, happy, content, expanding, surfing the waves that life delivers knowing that its all done for you, not to you?
