The Essence of Spirituality

Spirituality, we can say, is the ability to cultivate one part of the man’s nature; his spirit, through meditation, through internalization, by meeting with himself. This experience somehow implies a certain detachment from the dimension of the material and body.

The human being in its depth has the ability to grasp what lies beyond appearances, beyond what is seen and listened, the thought, the feeling. He apprehends the other side of things. They are not just things. They could represent symbols and metaphors of another reality beyond that, a sign from what they were, what they remind, an underlying meaning.

Human beings can perceive values and meanings, not just facts and events. What really matters is not the things that happen to us, but what they mean for our lives and the experiences they provide us. Things then start to have another meaning: remind us of what we have experienced and feed our inner selves. It is not without reason that some people surround themselves with objects that bring to them good memories. Those objects are no longer objects. They are stories, they speak, remember, they are meaningful to the heart.

Perceiving things in this way, the depth of the world, of others and his own depth is spirituality. Spirituality is the moment of consciousness by which we grasp the meaning and value of things. Furthermore, it is that state of consciousness through which we see the whole and ourselves as part and parcel of that whole. The uniqueness of human beings is to experience their own depth. Listening to themselves, they realize that it is from their heart, that feelings like compassion, love, the identification with others as one, emerge. They realize a divine presence that is always with us, always inside us.

Accept this energy belongs to our experience of life, hear it, and integrate it into your lives. It is spirituality in its basic essence. This energy is present in every person and in all stages of life. The depth represents to us the human spirit, feeling it, is what we call spirituality.

This experience has an effect of irradiation of serenity, of deep peace and fearlessness. We can feel loved, accepted and we realize that we are never alone. Spirituality is a way of life, a basic attitude to be lived at all times and under all circumstances. Even within the daily dealings of home, work, even when driving a car, or talking to our friends, or living in intimacy with the loved ones. The person that accepts their own spiritual depth in his everyday life can have more peace, will radiates vitality and enthusiasm, because they know that they carry within themself something bigger. They belong to something wider, as spiritual awareness is within their presence.

This spirituality, in modern life is sometimes so forgotten, though is necessary condition for an integrated and simple life. It can be even a way to understand the cause of our fears and complexes, like those that are more difficult to be understood by many; the transition is one of them.

For a spiritual person transition is a natural process of life, it not a beginning nor end, but transformation of spiritual heart, the next step.

2012 – Armageddon Or New Humanity?

December 2012 signifies the end of the old and the beginning of a new cycle in the history of human consciousness. The polar axis of the earth has been gradually moving since the 50’s. As it shifts to its final position, a new energy will be freed to set into motion the new era of humanity and help it enter into a higher vibration of existence. Like an earthquake that quivers things on the surface of the planet, the final shift in polar axis will create massive destruction on the physical, mental, and emotional planes all around the globe. Everything that we have built and lived with for 25,000 years in these three realities will be tested for their viability and possibility of survival. The North and South weather will reverse, and the power and wealth will shift from the hands of the greedy to the hands of the light workers.

Universe

The Universe evolves and expands as a result of transformation of the unconscious energies into consciousness. Through millions of years of evolution of consciousness on this planet, the energy vibrations that were sustainable on a physical plane have now become obsolete and are beginning to prevent further evolution in consciousness. Mother Nature now feels an existential need to destroy the old outdated structures humanity has created on this planet so that a new structure can be put into motion.

The last great destruction happened during the Atlantian era. This was inevitable due to the imbalance of power within the human race. We are now in a similar situation, where only a very few hold power and control over the masses. Their power is fueled by insecurity, greed, and manipulation, and is designed to benefit just a few. This imbalance can no longer sustain itself and is vividly evident through the global economic and political breakdown.

Terrorists exist because of different religious ideologies and political values. They exist because of the suppression of the individual and his and her potential for consciousness, freedom, and joy. Many people now recognize that unless they decide living with one universal consciousness, humanity might disappear as a species.

The New Era will bring with it an awareness of Universal Consciousness. Though the beginning of the new era is signified by the year 2012, the preparation for it has been going on for thousands of years. There have been many teachers who have come and gone throughout the centuries and have left their footprints, but they have not been able to help on a global scale because their teachings were localized in small areas. Starting with the most ancient teachings of the Upanishadic seers in India ninety thousand years ago, many masters have pointed to the need for self-awareness and self-realization. Unfortunately, up until now, very few people were conscious and intelligent enough to recognize the message of their teachings and find their own inner truth.

With the appearance of the Buddha 2,500 years ago, a new cycle of manifestation of consciousness began. As his teachings spread from India to China, to Japan and eventually throughout the world, more and more people became aware that through a simple technique of just watching ones breath it was possible to break out of the illusion created by the ego-mind and experience transcendence into oneness. The Buddha, in a way, fathered the concept of enlightenment and gave specific instructions on how to achieve it through meditation. What the Buddha put into motion 2,500 years ago will come to fruition and a collective transformation into the New Era of Universal Consciousness is now possible.

Another teacher of the same caliber as the Buddha, Osho, lived in the past century. Osho created havoc for the old organized structures and outlined the blue print of how the New Man and the New Humanity can be created and function in a completely new way. He spoke of the need to disconnect from the past by destroying the old outdated social, religious, and political structures that have kept humans in shackles and he sowed the seeds on how to live with a new vision. These seeds will be absolutely pure of any kind of doctrine, greed, jealousy, and conditionings and will brings fresh new flowers that we have never seen before.

energy

A significant number of humans are now recognizing that everyone belongs to the same universe and no one can ever be separate from Creation. Many are becoming aware of their innate state of power and religiosity, which is independent of any organized religious belief or conditioning. Many are beginning to see that the Will of Creation is the ultimate Will, and they are recognizing the deception of the ego that keeps them separate from the whole.

Those who see this will be able to surrender their separate will and be blessed with an opportunity to heal into consciousness and find their immortal being, which endlessly journeys within the vastness of this compassionate Universe, continually learning, creating, and expanding in consciousness. Each moment of healing into consciousness will help to prepare us for the ultimate surrender and liberation from our ego-mind. Those who gather the courage to surrender the small will of their ego will be the torch-bearers for the new cycle of evolution of humanity and will lead the way.

It took 25,000 years for enough people to evolve into greater consciousness and they are now ready to make a difference in shifting and transforming the collective into a new level of wakefulness.

Facing the Inevitable Truth

The Mayan calendar ending at 2012 signifies that our old way of living will also end. Each individual will face an opportunity to liberate their consciousness from the fears created by the conditionings of the ego. Whether we like it or not, everyone will be faced with needing to accept the truth that there is only One Existence and One God. The multiple concepts of God have been created out of fear of the unknown and the need to control. These man-made concepts about the many different Gods have created much pain and suffering for humanity and have brought us to self-destruction. Our survival is now predicated on renunciation of the many different concepts of God and unification as cosmic beings belonging to the earth and the universe.

 

The year 2012 will bring us an opportunity to start living with awareness that we are the creators of our own destiny and thus need to take responsibility for our own actions. Instead of allowing others to dictate what’s right and wrong for us individually we need to learn to stand up for our own inner truth.

Up until now the old structures have encouraged humanity to live in constant fear of death and struggle for survival. Due to this everyone has learned to suppress their true thoughts and emotions and behave artificially. Even if we think that we have a free will, our fears undermine it. 2012 will shed new light on our fears and will encourage us to be honest with ourselves and others. By becoming aware of the unconscious state we have lived in and by taking the needed action to be honest and truthful we can truly exercise our free will and experience true Love and Joy.

The New Beginning

new humanity

The end of 2012 will be the end of the world as we know it. 2012 will awaken us out of our collective sleep and will destroy our old beliefs, ideologies, and behavior patterns. All our emotional, mental, and physical foundations will be shaken, giving us an opportunity to surrender our fears, conditionings and old belief systems. This destruction will help us purify our first three chakras, and propel us collectively higher into the fourth chakra, where we will begin to function through our heart.

In a sense, this destruction will not be negative, although it may seem so at a first glance. The farmer knows that in order to sow new seeds he needs to first till the soil. If we are to survive the changes and create a new foundation we need to surrender our attachments to old social, political, and religious conditionings and sow new seeds based on honesty, integrity and purity of the heart. To start a new garden we need to weed it first. If the weeds are left to grow, they will eventually take over the garden and will suffocate the delicate flowers. Similarly, we need to weed our old patterns so we can awaken to our true potential.

2012 will shake people on many different levels. Many will realize that everything is temporary and sooner or later will be taken away. People will start to see that the only thing that matters and is of value are their heart connections.

2012 will give humanity an opportunity to dissolve borders and allow for conscious people to run the world’s affairs. The leaders will be those who have the best intentions at heart for all humans. The society will begin serving the individual and help each person blossom to their fullest potential.

The new beginning will give birth to a new man and a new woman who will follow the way of the heart instead of belong to any nation, or religious ideology. They will follow their own intelligence and inner knowing, and will be true to their own nature, which knows that we are all one and we are all God.

2012 – An Opportunity for True Love

2012 will bring many opportunities to build a new foundation that can support true love. Love has only been a concept until now. Christ consciousness can only be lived through the heart. To be truly loving, one need not talk about love but live in love and act out of love. True love brings freedom, not bondage, and it allows the other to find his and her own truth. True love does not impose. It has no conditions attached. True love allows the other to fly with his or her own wings. True love can only be felt and not talked about. True love is an ability to feel and know the transcendental. True love helps us to transcend the mind and move higher in consciousness. True love is our ability to share ourselves with others and the universe without fear. True love is the foundation of joy and creativity. True love is the foundation of honesty and truthfulness. True love does not compromise, control and manipulate.

Because these qualities are missing in our social structure, true love has remained only a possibility up until now. Once we stop cultivating competitiveness, emotions like jealousy and envy will melt away, and we will begin to experience and live in true love.

Most of our literature and life experiences have been based on the raw emotions of the first three chakras. We have learned to live with internal and external struggle and drama. We have created make-believe structures and ideologies about love and how it should be practiced. In the name of love, we have been conditioned to suppress and compromise our inner truth. Rarely have we seen and experienced the beauty and grace that arises out of spiritual values such as bliss, kindness, and unconditional love. Rarely have we experienced pure love that has no attachments to outcomes.

Everything artificial will soon be exposed on a mass scale. 2012 will bring to surface both our beauty as well as our ugliness. Those who are after their own selfish interests will become more and more visible and more and more miserable. Those who have been working hard to purify themselves and find their true being will have much to be grateful for, for they will find true happiness and joy which is within their own heart.

Children – Our Golden Future

children

Humans have lived giving lip service to each other and have taught their children to do the same. We have all been taught to manipulate and use each other to meet our own selfish needs. We all know too well how we use beautiful words but don’t mean what we say. We have taught our children to follow suit and have turned them into artificial mechanical robots just like we are. To heal this damage and allow for the new seeds to sprout we need to start honoring our children and make sure that we don’t contaminate their innate wisdom with dogmas and beliefs. We need to encourage our children to find their own truth and live by their own light, strength, and wisdom. Instead of instilling fear in children, the new structure will support and encourage them to find their individuality and discover for themselves what is false and what is true.

Children need to grow having the support of their parents to learn to stand up for themselves. They need to communicate to the world that they are not willing to live with the old outdated structures and they need to create their own future based on their own inner wisdom and sense of honesty and fairness.

The new changes will not happen overnight. Once the ground is tilled and the new seeds are in place, we need to nurture them by watering them and giving the needed sunshine and air so they can sprout. It will take time for the new seedlings to grow and develop. In order for this to happen, those of us who are conscious and aware need to keep weeding the ground around our children so the weeds don’t choke their delicate growth before they come to their maturity.

Are you Ready?

The transition through 2012 is going to be difficult for some people, yet easy for others. The level of difficulty will depend on how well each person has prepared himself or herself physically, mentally, and spiritually.

It is all a matter of vibration. To prepare oneself means to refine your energy vibration. This can only be done by taking full responsibility for your own transformation from unconsciousness into consciousness. It is each person’s responsibility to start functioning from higher energy centers (charkas) to move past the ego-mind and its desires. In the higher chakras, fear of survival, competitiveness, and the sense of separation are transformed into love, compassion, and awareness of one’s true being. Once we recognize that our being never dies, we truly understand the meaning and purpose of life. If more people start living with the awareness that their being is eternal and indestructible, and that no one can control and manipulate them, most fears will disappear. People will be happy to take risks and begin living in the present instead of dwelling on the past or escaping into the future.

2012 can be a year of mourning or a year of celebration. It will depend on what you choose it to be. It will be mourning for those who do not want to let go of their attachments and desires, and a year of celebration for those who are ready to surrender their ego-mind and awaken to the truth of their Being. Regardless of our choice, we will be forced to live in a new way. The new way will honor truthfulness, authenticity, and integrity instead of honoring fearful, controlling, and manipulative behaviors. The new way will expose selfish behaviors and will honor sincerity, courage, and compassion for others. Instead of persecuting those who expose their inner light to dispel darkness, humanity will begin treating them with reverence and respect for their contribution. And those who are ready to honor the light of their own consciousness will pave the way to their own salvation.

As we move towards the Enlightened Era in human evolution, we will begin remembering our true source and immortality, and will stop suffering. Those with best intentions at heart for themselves and others will set the new standards of social living. Their light will shine brightly paving the way for many others to transit between the old and the new. No harm will come to those who are conscious, as their consciousness alone will protect them.

The paradise that we seek outside of our true nature is already within us. To begin living paradise on Earth, we simply need to change our internal vibrations from unconsciousness into consciousness!

Seven Things you can do to Prepare for the 2012 Shift

1)    Ask yourself Who am I? and Why am I Here? Examine your attitude towards life and death and search for your eternal being.

2)    Surrender your personal will to the Will of Existence and whatever life brings you moment to moment.

3)    Make a list of your fears and allow yourself to act in spite of them. Don’t be afraid to be different.

4)    Understand and break through your social and religious conditionings. Search within to find your own answers instead of relying on other people’s opinion of what’s right for you.

5)    Look for the lessons you need to learn in every situation in spite of the ups and downs of life.

6)    Be honest with yourself and others and take full responsibility for your thoughts and emotions.

7)    Live each day as if it’s your last, and trust that existence always takes care of you.

Top 5 Regrets of The Dying

Happy_Old_Man Top 5 regrets of the dying.

Top 5 Regrets of The Dying

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives.

People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial, fear, anger, remorse, more denial and eventually acceptance. Every single patient found their peace before they departed though, every one of them.

When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.

It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.

By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.

We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.

It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.

When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.

Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.

Moving Beyond the Ego Barrier


Moving Beyond the Ego Barrier

Moving Beyond the Ego Barrier

“I did it! I finally had the courage and saw it through. I never thought I could. It worked! I can’t believe it worked!”

These are the words of a woman I had been talking to about the behaviour of her teenage daughter. Her child had become so difficult that the mother was desperate. I saw the solution quite clearly. It came to me so strongly and firmly, controversially but I knew from the deepest part of me it would work and the two of them could resolve and have a brilliant relationship.

How did I know it was the right thing to say? How did I know it would resolve their difficulties? When your ego works in harmony with you it is easy for you to link with and trust your intuition and psychic perceptions.

When the ego is out of control and too big for its boots, it hinders the natural path of intuition, intuitive instinct and psychic ability. The ego self will deny the presence of intuition and rely heavily on logic, reason and emotional fears rather than embrace higher thinking automatically.

When developing psychic ability, at some point or another, people go through a period of time when an argument erupts between the inner ‘ego’ and ‘higher thinking’. The ego doesn’t like change; it is a creature of habit which is there to protect the physical existence of the human body. It is the part of you that knows stepping out in front of a moving bus means you get squashed. That is its purpose: it is there to remind you to protect the physical. The all-knowing part of you, however, is aware it is eternal and forgets it must look after the vehicle it travels in during this lifetime.

How do you tell the difference between ego and intuition?

Your intuition is relentless and cannot be budged from its position whereas the ego can be talked into and out of anything. An example would be if your intuition told you to pursue a particular career. No human on earth could truly talk you out of that feeling. They may be able to talk you out of following that feeling but never out of recognising that feeling.

It is often difficult to recognise which parts of you operate from the ego self. In this case we will use ‘ego’ to loosely describe fear or fear-based actions. Many of our fears operate without us fully participating or recognising what is taking place.

When we start to develop our psychic skills, it is more difficult for the ego to take control. This is why many people on the psychic path find it increasingly difficult to deny their truth. They find it challenging to: stay in situations or places that no longer suit; tell someone they are being mean rather than ignore it; suddenly change a job that they’ve been meaning to do for the past five years. These are all signs that they are getting a handle on the ego self and its control over them. It starts to operate in the form it was meant to and begins to work in harmony with, rather than against, the deep, never-ending knowledge of your instinctual intuitive self.

Today the woman and her daughter are talking again. Both are equally respectful of the other. It took less than a week to fix. She had previously been trying for months, even years. She did not have to sit down and read her daughter the riot act. She simple followed something scary and out of her everyday mindset.

She stepped outside the ego.

To forgive takes strength to set aside what is often justifiable anger.

To forgive really is divine. It takes strength to set aside what is often justifiable anger. It’s much easier to hold a grudge. Yet when we make the choice and allow ourselves to put aside that anger and to forgive those who have harmed us, we actually do ourselves a great service. Making the conscious decision to let go of pain is the beginning of healing. But doing so is challenging because it is easy to become attached to seeing oneself as a victim and to hold onto resentment, even when the person who has harmed us is genuinely sorry. Forgiving someone is both one of the most difficult and one of the most spiritually rewarding choices we can make.
