“There are two mistakes one can make along the journey to truth... not starting, and not going all the way.”

The Heart Knows the Way

As a whole, we as humanity are very shut down from our hearts and from the messages that our hearts are constantly sending us- our feelings. We do what sounds right in our heads, but we rarely do what feels right in our hearts. This leads to an unsatisfactory life of feeling lost, discontent, and unfulfilled. The mind is good at analyzing, at picking stuff apart and gathering an intellectual understanding of different things, concepts, and ideas, yet it has no awareness of your feelings, which are your inherent guidance in life. It simply disregards them and goes on thinking. Your feelings always come from the heart.

The feelings that you have as a human being are your deepest intuitive faculty and they literally connect you to your soul, or what is sometimes referred to as your higher self. They are like a compass that can be used to effectively guide you through life. Your heart is literally the apparatus that translates feeling into a sensation that you can consciously recognize, one you regard as either good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant. The heart, unlike the mind, will never mislead you. It always renders an accurate interpretation of whatever you are focused on, and whether this focus and behavior is actually healthy and beneficial, or not.

Think of a time when you felt your best, a moment of intense love and joy. You likely felt an opening and expansion in your chest, a warming of the heart. It was likely at a time when something positive and wonderful happened in your experience. Now think of a time when you were totally devastated, in a state of “heartbreak” and despair. You likely felt a closing and sinking feeling in your chest, a cold and calloused sensation in the heart, and this probably occurred at a time when something terrible happened in your life. This is the nature of feelings, of emotional sensation, and it is always based in the heart.

The more we listen to our minds and only our minds, the more lost we become in an endless maze of chaos and confusion, the more we disconnect from our feelings, from our true passion and purpose in life, and the more we simply do what our conditioned mind tells us we “should” do, which mostly comes from our inherited dysfunctional belief patterns given to us by our parents and the society we were brought up in.

But the more we can learn to listen to our hearts, the more we are able to connect with our truest and most authentic selves. We focus our attention on the heart space and we listen to the way we feel, paying more attention to that than to the thoughts that we are thinking with our minds. We discover our path and purpose in life and feel a deep sense of inner fulfillment, contentedness, love and joy. We listen to our intuition, our emotions, which if followed will always lead to our highest good.

Whenever you can follow a feeling of love, warmth, openness, and expansion, you will inevitably be moving towards everything you have ever genuinely desired in this life. You will uncover the deepest secrets of this Universe, not in a way that can be mentally conceptualized and interpreted. No, in a much deeper and more profoundly experiential manner. You won’t think, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free : )

To create
to breathe life
to watch a spark of potential
arise and fade away
for creation is ever-present
with it’s partner of time
the one using the other
the other consuming the one
until the potentials collapse
into the realm from which they were resurrected
and the one can begin anew
always breathing
in and out
creation and destruction
the birth and the dissolution
the divine union
of creation and time
in the very nature
of the silence and noise
the light and the darkness
the love and fear
we love the creation
the forms as they come
and fear their loss
their disappearance into the void
but this is the beauty
the union is one
in essence both must be
for their union is divine perfection
and all that arises
will come to pass
in the ever-presence of who you are

You are taken away
in the wave of perfection
of absolute bliss
in which death seems like nothing
and you are the totality of everything
even that is an understatement
for everything cannot come close
to explaining who you are
these words are meaningless
petty abstractions
distractions for the mind
you are so much more
infinitely more
and beyond the things
and the no-things
there you are
bursting with life
a sea of divine potential
just waiting to arise

The clinging
the grasping
the seeking
yet never finding
the seemingly endless cycle
of samsara
trying to get there
and escape here
to taste the bliss
and alleviate the pain
this is suffering
this is illusion
this is mara
but what is nirvana?
the end of seeking
the ceasing of all clinging
the attachment to this
the rejection of that
is no more
all is taken in
with absolute surrender
a complete embrace
of perfect love
heaven and hell
are allowed to be
in the midst of the perfect self
who loves them just the same
so let it be
come to know the truth
of who you are
stop the doing

just be

You are broken
shattered into a million pieces
torn apart by the hands of time
until nothing of the self remains
and then there is listlessness
a hopeless despair
a feeling of apathetic emptiness
yet the emergence of nuance
a spark
a glimmer of hope
a faint echo of love
illuminating shadows in the dark
a gentle whisper of fatal optimism
that being broken is a holy state
that shattering into a million pieces
is the nature of the most high
and the deepest pain
is the doorway to the greatest bliss
You are free

The Path To Enlightment

Awareness is the key that unlocks the entire Universe.

Seek nothing. Be everything.

There is a collective ego rooted in human consciousness that seeks to maintain it’s separate sense of self in order to survive. This collective ego could almost be seen as a giant machine that forms the current collective human society and economic structure. Like any living entity, first and foremost, it seeks survival. The only way any entity can survive is through the focus of Consciousness, the One who breathes life into the form. So this collective ego tricks Consciousness into identifying with it in order to maintain itself in this dream-realm that is the third dimension. It could be equated to a collective mind-virus or parasite that feeds on the essential life essence of each human being.

Yet ultimately, this parasitic entity is a projection of your own imagination, a conglomeration of collected thought-forms that together accumulate into a delusional entity that inhabits the fourth dimensional reality, which is the realm of thought. This has gone by many names throughout history, in Buddhism it is known as Mara, in Christianity it is known as Satan, and in Jungian philosophy it could be equated to the human shadow.

Essentially, this ego was a collective frequency that human Consciousness unconsciously bought in to for a long period of time, ever since thought arose as a collective phenomenon. For our distant ancestors, this was actually a higher frequency, and so was a beneficial aspect in their evolution. Consciousness went from no sense of self, to a collectively inherited ideological and conceptual sense of self. Man became self-aware, yet only in an intellectual, thought-based manner. Eventually, however, as we continued to evolve, this state of being became increasingly dysfunctional. What once allowed for incredible expansion and forward progress was now leading to immense destruction and suffering on a mass scale.

We are now at a time where Consciousness is rising above the egoic frequency. Our identification and attachment to what are now dense and constricting thought-forms is beginning to be relinquished. We are like a seed pushing through the soil to emerge into the light. The soil is this dense ego-based thought identity, and creates a pressure that we feel building until we finally emerge into the light of the essential Self. Consciousness is becoming self-aware once more, but in a non-conceptual way, beyond the comprehension of the mind.

If we were first a simple seed, thought was the water that enabled us to grow. The soil is the ego born of this thought that we push through until eventually we rise above and find the transcendental realm of pure Awareness, a place beyond duality and time-bound modes of being. We find this light not by fighting the ego, but instead by working with it, by recognizing it for what it is, and ultimately seeing beyond it. The seed does not fight the soil, per se, but instead uses it for its own growth and evolution. This is the path to enlightenment.
