(1) O love, let me not forsake the Name of the Master of the earth, (1-pause) He who, while dying, thinks of a woman, and dies worrying so, He is recreated again and over again, as a prostitute. (2) He who while dying, thinks of the sons, and dies worrying so, He is born and reborn as a swine. (3) He who while dying, thinks of his mansions, and dies worrying so, He takes rebirth as an evil spirit. (4) He who Dwells upon the Lord and dies Reflecting thus, He, says Trilochana, is Emancipated: within him Abides the "Lord of the Yellow robes." (5-2) (Trilochan, Gujri)

5. Kabir: Precious is the human birth; it comes not to hand again: As the fruit, when ripe, falls and sticks not again to the bough. (Shlokas of Kabir)

Hearing As The Most Important Step In Bhakti Yoga

Even though God is everywhere,
out of our insensitivity we oppress
His Presence in His own natural Kingdom.

Kicking God out of the world,
humanity tries to make the world
into their own creation.

All because of not taking the time
to hear about God,
our ears are partial to gossip and slander.

Spinning in circles because of feeding
on politics, social relations,
mundane knowledge and personal egotism,
the Word of God has been manipulated
to serve the polarized needs of the masses.

No longer the sound of creation
and the sound of primordial intelligence,
the Word of God is best received
when in a state of non violent participation.

Non violently participating in talks of God,
God sends down His messengers
in the form of your guidance
and non intrusive sayings.

Like when hearing your loved one
call out to you for the first time,
the Word of God is as fresh
as a baby and as vitalizing as the ethers.

Submissively hearing about God
from a bonafide teacher or source,
the sound of creation is newly recognized
as being the cause of the soul's cognizance.

Without first hearing about God,
knowing God is next to impossible.

By transcendentally hearing,
the soul transcendentally knows.

Bearing witness to the Truth,
those who hear about God and then speak
about God are blessed by the rishis and devas.
Intoning the sound of creation,
the Word is spoken.
Initiated into the mysteries of the Word,
everything begins with it.
The time to inquire into
the Absolute Truth is Now.
Now being immediate to the
ear's perceptual reality,
consciousness arises as the Word arises.

Arising to a world where God
is not oppressed in any way,
arise to the platform of one who has
heard the Word being spoken by God directly.

Upon hearing such a profound sound vibration,
which is as roaring as the sea,
your role in sounding forth the Word is complete.

Freeing God in your own heart
by seeing Him through the medium of sound,
the beginning and end of consciousness is found.

Adopted into the Bhakti Tree,
Bhakti Yoga is saintly for beginners
and holy for those who have retired
from the activities of the material world.

Swaying with the Ultimate Tree of Enlightenment,
may all aspiring trees of devotion
sway with the Name of God
wrapped around their branches.

Going within with Reiki

Recently I became attuned to Reiki and it has been quite a journey. I can’t say if it forced or facilitated my journey within, but regardless I find myself in this wondrous exploration of who I truly am. For years I have heard various spiritual teachers and messengers telling people to “go within”, “all of our answers are within”, but the concept seemed so abstract. I couldn’t understand how to go within. Where was within? One night I decided I was going to figure it out. Some Reiki teachers will say that the most important part of having a Reiki practice is that the practitioner is actively healing themselves. I deeply agree with this. I never considered how many bodies I have until I had to use Reiki on not only my physical body but my spiritual, mental, and emotional bodies as well. Before I go to bed, after I send Reiki energy out to those who have asked for it or those who may need it, I give myself a Reiki session. That night I wanted to go within and so I sent Reiki energy to that effort, not sure of what the results would be. I started by simply observing my thoughts and I began to wonder their location. They were within. I then thought of my ancestors and when I sensed them. Where were they? Within. I observed my feelings. Where were they? Within. Everything was within. My concept of spirituality, divine power, loved ones who have transitioned, thoughts, feelings, memories, all the things that comprised me were within. That meant that I am all of those things. I then pushed it a little further and sought to know something that I thought I didn’t know. If I am all of these things then I must be knowledge as well. So I began to search for this bit of knowledge that I wanted to obtain within and I found it. It revealed itself to me quite easily. Of course that was just my beginning but it has helped me demystify a great amount of teachings and information I have come across the years.
I am sharing this to inspire those who are trying to do the same and for those who never considered it as a possibility. Is Reiki a prerequisite? Of course not. Reiki is my personal journey as a healer and artist. You only need a desire and openness to know that yourself is waiting for you to “go within”. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

The High & The Low

Standing on the edge between mountain and abyss
The people of the world were not ready for this

Caught in the web of cell phones and transhumanism
Straddling freedom with corporate feudalism

Say all is love with an empty mind
Or banish the heart for what science can find

Flip on a switch and be numbed by the violence
Speak of morals and be deafened by silence

Believe all that matters is a smiling face
While ethics and standards become a disgrace

Turn with fear to a pre-made solution
Patterns of past combine with dissolution

Anger is normal and adjoins a prescription
Avert with denial from this pale description

Yet when hope and faith are all that remains
What more can one do but pull at the chains

Fight with one hand and hold open the other
Dream when humanity shall come now together

Weather night’s storm until light of the day
Be serious first until then you can play

Cherish the moment and be resolute in will
Cry for relief when the world becomes still

Acknowledge what is but focus on what’s right
Maintain your endurance on a path that is bright

Think it through and then feel with the soul
It’s not about you, it’s about finding the whole

Highs and lows can pass at a glance
So listen my friends and don’t lose our chance

Loving Spankings - Part I

Loving Spankings - Part I

It is rare that I am given the opportunity to bring such a poignant and articulate story to my reader's as this. Carol has given me permission to quote or use her story as I deem useful.

While not everyone has the same outcome from spankings as Carol did--there are millions of people, who are too embarrassed and humiliated to tell their story or they believe as so many people do--"It didn't do me any harm so it can't do my child any harm." Unlike Carol, they don't connect the cause and effect of their emotional dysfunction and physical illnesses to their 'Loving Spankings." Please read Carol's story in its entirety, because first-person truth is better than any research findings done by a clinical double blind study or case studies.

Non-abusive "Loving Spankings" Messed Me Up For Life

"When I was a little girl and my mother thought I required discipline, she would pull me face down across her lap and give me a series of stinging slaps of her hand on my bare buttocks while I cried. In fifteen seconds it was over. I would be in tears and clutching my bottom for a minute or so, but it didn't really hurt much after that, just a hot itch. My rear end would be a solid pink right afterwards. But in a few hours it would be back to normal. And that was that.

I was not "abused" as a child, just "spanked with love." She never left a bruise when she "lovingly spanked" me. The permanent marks were inside, not outside.

Mother firmly believed in spankings as discipline for her children because they "worked" so well. All she needed to do if my behavior displeased her was say, "Carol, do you want a spanking?" and that would frighten me into obeying her. And if she told me to do the dishes and I didn't do them very well and got spanked for it you can bet those dishes were unusually spotless for the next couple of days. But spankings also left me with lifelong emotional and sexual problems that I still don't know how to fix despite years of therapy. My mother got an obedient daughter and cleaner dishes and I got a lifelong mess inside me.

If I were growing up today, Mother could post on parenting web forums about how "effective" spankings are as discipline for her daughters. She could brush aside concerns about emotional harm saying "an hour after I spank her, Carol is happily playing or doing her chores." She could talk about my good grades in school. She could talk about how polite I am and respectful to my elders, and how she gets compliments from other adults about what a good girl I am in public. And if anyone tried to warn her that she might give her child a fetish, she could laugh and say, "Carol would never turn out like that. She hates to be spanked!" And nothing she said would be a lie.

I tried so hard to be good. But sooner or later I always found myself face down across my mother's lap getting yet another spanking. I just couldn't control it - except in my fantasies. In fantasy I could make everything happen just so, as if it really were under my control. My mother's preferred discipline method emotionally upset me so much that I sexualized it - everything about it: the kind of clothing she wore and I wore, the things she would say before and after my spanking, the position she put me in, on and on. Fantasy let me cope with my trauma and get a pretend feeling of control over something really out of my control. When I imagined myself as a naughty girl over her Mommy's lap getting her bare little bottom spanked I pictured myself crying and begging the Mommy to stop. Yet it was my fantasy so really I had total control. And by eroticizing, I made something awful and frightening into something delightful and pleasant.

And it worked. Becoming a spankophile at an early age kept me from falling apart. It comforted me when nothing else could. It made me feel in control when I wasn't. And it gave me a make-believe escape from something for which there was no true escape. (How do you escape when it's your very own Mommy who is hurting you???) And now I am stuck with it for the rest of my life.

Parents who say, "It didn't do me any harm so it can't do my child any harm" just don't get it. Everyone is different. My mother got spanked when she was little, and she carried on the same tradition with my sister and me. But my mother didn't become a spankophile. And although my sister got the same kinds of punishments as I did - across the same lap and from the same palm - she didn't become a spankophile either. But I did. There is no way you can tell beforehand which of your spanked children will have a guilty sexualized fixation for the rest of her life. So any parent who spanks their child is putting them at risk. Punishing your child with spankings is just like playing a lottery where if you "win" you mess up your kid for life.

Most spanked kids don't turn out as obsessed as me. But some do. And we aren't rare. Growing up I knew two other little girls who both got spanked by their parents and who both loved to play House the same way I did: with play spankings, play spankings, and more play spankings all afternoon without ever getting bored. (At least two of us were strict disciplinarians of our dolls, too!) One girl would even get me to pretend to be her real life mother so we could re-enact actual episodes for which she had been disciplined in her home. For me to meet two others so like myself in this way would be almost impossible if kids like me were rare.

Now I am retired, unmarried, child-less, on medication for depression. At a tender age I used my budding sexuality to cope with something I didn't know how else to cope with. And it has left its mark on me forever. I've been paying the price all my life and I will never stop paying. I am unmarried because the circuits in my brain that should have been used for romance were vandalized by spankings instead. I am childless because I never married. So there is a direct link between my spankings, how I coped with them, and my being sexually abnormal, and hence never marrying and having any children of my own.

Not all of the harm is sexual in nature. An "it made me what I am today" pattern emerges whenever someone unexpectedly confronts me in an angry way about something I did. I have a bad habit of saying the first rationalization that pops into my mind, sometimes even lying. It just blurts itself out of me. And I don't know how to change. It goes back so far. It is a habit I learned as a preschooler that sometimes saved me from a bottom warming. It usually didn't, but something that works only occasionally is better than nothing at all.

Another lifelong bad effect of my spankings is that when someone orders me to do something in a stern authoritarian voice, I usually just cave in and do it even if I don't feel right about what I am doing. It just happens, seemingly by itself. And it all goes back to my earliest years. Growing up in my "traditional values" family, children did as they were told and didn't talk back. If you did, Mommy would turn you across her knee, pull down your panties and "teach you a lesson" right then and there. I sure learned my lessons! The trouble is, how do you unlearn that lesson as a grownup out in the world who has to stand up for herself? I just hate myself now whenever I realize that once again I let myself be someone's doormat.

Today's children should not have to go through what I went through. We know more now. Now we have websites such as nospank.net on which someone like me can tell what happened to her without sacrificing her privacy. My mother regretted spanking me once I finally told her about my fetish as an adult. She at least has the excuse that nobody told her how bad the side effects could be. Parents reading this website do not have that excuse anymore. No child should have to sacrifice their developing sexual self just to cope with the painful violence of a parent who claims to love them." Carole

Spanking children is harmful, it is hurtful, it is violent, and it needs to stop. Parents reading this: please don't use physical pain to discipline your children. ###

Loving Spankings - Part II

Loving Spankings - Part II

Loving Spankings are considered the prerogative of parents in every U.S. state, except Minnesota. Several adults who experienced loving spankings share their poignant memories. It is stories like these, which gives the most accurate and significant information to formulate an understanding of this common practice.

Since I wrote 'Loving Spankings - Part I,' others have come forward to share their experiences. [See article URL below.]

"I am stunned after reading Carole's description of her maternal spankings from her mother. Someone who shares the same deep secret as myself, who has described it so perfectly. The term "Loving Spankings" I have never heard before so describes what also happened to me in my youth both at my aunts and with a grade 4 female teacher. I too was spanked for many years in what Carole's has so described. It has been a deep secret for me for many years of my life suppressed in my years as a young man I believe because of shame. I spent summers at my aunts from age 4-12 and regular spankings, for all those years, was the norm for her. Those were times I believe of very mixed emotions for me. Also sessions of spankings from a grade 4th teacher for one year was also mixed in the scenario of my youth. All my life spanking has been an issue that brings a strange feeling of attraction and repulsion. The attraction being something that makes me feel shame. It has never gone away and I feel that the flashbacks of those times that are so vivid I need to deal with but do not know how to. I just live with it. I have felt that really I just have to live with it. Maybe some kind of counseling might help but the shame really makes me stay away from that direction. I do feel for Carole and the problems that occurred as a result....." David

"...This is a problem that many of us suffer from. I like the fact that you are pro-active in telling parents not to spank their children. Hopefully one day soon, it will be illegal in our country for any adult to hit any child. Until then, I hope that more of us will spread the news to parents that it is wrong, wrong, wrong, to spank children and that they could be setting their children up for sexual dysfunction for the rest of their lives." Katie

"The emotional scar embedded deep within my soul left from the last time my Father hit me has subconsciously contributed to the form and shape of the person who I am today.

I did not come to this realization until I raised my hand in anger to strike my own little girl. The shock and fear in her huge tear-filled blue eyes brought all the raw emotions I felt when my Father slapped me rushing throughout my body and into the pit of my stomach. I felt severe anxiety and painful nausea at the same time. Thank GOD for watching out for my children, for at that moment I walked out of the room and swore I would never hit them. The fear and anger I felt was almost overwhelming. I vowed to never strike my children. I would never make them feel as I felt as a child.

At 39 years old, the slap across my face my Father gave me no longer hurts my body, but I could almost pee my pants, again, when I think of the incident. At age 14, urinating on myself due to fear of my Father has proven to have tremendous lifelong psychological impacts. To this day I still tell myself, "I deserved it. I should have not talked back. I should not have argued with him." This experience was formative in my development in the fact that it changed the way I raise my children.

Generations of violence, spanking with a belt or bare hands on bare bottoms, and humiliation techniques, such as, "What are you Stupid" are ending and parents are taking on a new comprehensive holistic approach to parenting. Practicing non violent communication instead of force and control to educate and guide our children through this precious journey of life. Rather than saying "good job," I observe and describe the situation or behavior. I do not use fear or intimidation to get my children to cooperate. Every chance I hear an argument between siblings I take advantage of the opportunity to have an enriched learning experience by communicating through the issue and initiating the children to come up with the solution. Our household tolerates absolutely no spanking or yelling. Although I must say, I have a loud voice and I have to work on this one." Name withheld by request

Alice Miller stated, "Traumata stored in the brain, but denied by our conscious mind will always be visited on the next generation. If parents say: "Spanking didn't do me any harm," they will do the same to their offspring without a second thought. But if they can see that the treatment of their parents mutilated their lives, they will try to spare their children from the same destiny, they will look for information and will not want to be blocked in denial and ignorance."

Spanking/hitting/switching/whipping/paddling--a.k.a. corporal punishment can weaken the survivor's immune system according to Dr. Frank Putnam of the National Institute of Mental Health and Dr. Martin Teicher of Harvard Medical School. Putnam conducted studies for seven years of 170 girls, 6-15 years old--half had been subjected to 'corporal punishment,' half had not. The girls, who experienced physical punishment displayed symptoms such as:

o Abnormally high stress hormones, which can kill neurons in brain areas crucial for thinking and memory

o High levels of an antibody that weaken the immune system.

Teicher completed a series of brain studies on 402 children and adults, many of whom had been physically abused. His findings revealed that physical abuse creates:

o Arrested growth of the left hemisphere of the brain which can hamper development of language and logic

o Growth of the right hemisphere of the brain (the site for emotion) at an abnormally early age

The result of a weakened immune system includes more profound as well as seldom recognized physical aftereffects such as: vaginal, ovarian, prostate, testicular or breast cancer, PMS, MS, fibromyalgia, lupus, asthma, hypertension, ulcers to name a few of the most prominent illness as a result of a weak immune system due to physical punishment.

o Louise Hay in her Book, Heal Your Body--The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Metaphysical Ways to Overcome Them, cited her own vaginal cancer as an example of a weakened immune system due to physical/sexual abuse and how Metaphysical healing can heal the body.

Prem means love, nityo means eternal. Love is the only phenomenon in life which has the quality of eternity in it. Hence even a single moment of love takes you beyond time, takes you into timelessness. A single moment of love is a moment of eternity; it is not an ordinary moment. It is not horizontal, it is vertical.

All other moments are horizontal. You are eating, you are sleeping, taking your bath, earning your bread – these are all horizontal. One moment is followed by another in a sequence; it is a chain. Each present moment of the ordinary life is surrounded by two other moments: the one that is disappearing and becoming the past, and the one that is just coming on the horizon, the future.

The ordinary present is sandwiched between past and future; but love knows no past and no future. It is a very extraordinary moment; it is vertical. It is not part of our time process. And that is the meaning of the Christian cross: one line is horizontal, the other line is vertical. It is not just a symbol of the crucifixion; it is a symbol of time and eternity. Eternity penetrates the river of time only when you are in love. Jesus is a man of immense love, hence he could say ’God is love.’ He represents love.

So remember it, that the more you become loving, the more you transcend death.

That’s why a lover is never afraid of death. Only the people who don’t know how to love are afraid of death, because the people who don’t know how to love remain in their egos. And they know only one kind of time. They know everything begins and ends; they don’t know the beginningless and the endless, they have never tasted of it. They have lived only in one-dimensional time; eternity has remained completely unknown to them. They are afraid of death – they know that they are going to die. And they are going to die, because time is a process that begins and ends.

Once you know what love is you have tasted something that is beyond death, you have tasted something that is never born and never dies. To taste love is to taste god. And only those who know love know what god is all about. Others simply talk, others know not.

Remember it: love is the existential meaning of god. God is only a philosophical term, nonexistential, for love. Love is god alive and the concept of god is love dead. The concept of god belongs to theology: love belongs to existence. So forget all about god and go deeper and deeper into love... and you will know god! That’s the only way there is.

Are You As Happy As You Desire?

Are You As Happy As You Desire?

You have heard the expressions – ‘Find Your Bliss.’ 'Find Happiness’ While happiness is subjective, there is one hard rule. Happiness comes from within. It is the egg before the chicken.

How often have you had a big win in your life, business, sports, getting married or a new relationship? However, after it was all over, you no longer felt a sense of happiness. Have you wondered why?

Many people think, when they achieve a goal, lose weight, find Mr or Ms Right, buy a house, new car, have children or make a lot of money, happiness will be secured.

Research at Harvard University shows the opposite is true. You need to be happy first, and then, success and accomplishments follow. Furthermore, if you are happy first, you can enjoy and savor the success more.

Our brain is hardwired to work at maximum creativity, resilience and effectiveness when we are in a state of joy and relaxation. Consider these facts from Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor:

• Doctors who are in a positive state before diagnosing show three times more intelligence and creativity and make diagnoses 19% faster than doctors who are in a neutral state.
• Optimistic salespeople sell 56% more than pessimistic salespeople.
• Happy students out perform their peers on tests.

The research clearly reveals because happiness was present the person performed better. Coaches have a motivation session before a competition, because happy team members play better and cooperate more.

You can learn to create happiness from the inside. Learn how to:

• Reduce stress and increase your ability to access your happiness within
• Regain your joy and live your life to the fullest
• Create greater success in every area of your life using practical tips and tools
• Increase your happiness quotient in only one week.
• Remove blocks and barriers that prevent you from accessing your happiness.
• Access how happy you are.

Why wait any longer to access your happiness? You will enjoy your life more and have greater success and abundance. Contact: Dr Dorothy 480.794.1561 or Skype ID: DorothyNed for your FREE 15 minute no obligation consultation.

The Sound of Compassion and Jiva Mukti

For many a Kalpa - as numerous as the particles of sand in the river Ganges - Avalokiteshvara Buddha, the hearer and answerer of prayer, has visited all the Buddha-lands of the ten quarters of the universe and has acquired Transcendental Powers of Boundless Freedom and Fearlessness and has vowed to emancipate all sentient beings from their bondage and suffering. How sweetly mysterious is the Transcendental Sound of Avalokiteshvara [Quan Yin]! It is the pure Brahman Sound. It is the subdued murmur of the seatide setting inward. Its mysterious Sound brings liberation and peace to all sentient beings who in their distress are calling for aid; it brings a sense of permanency to those who are truly seeking the attainment of Nirvana’s Peace …” (The Surangama Sutra)

Love and Meditation (Prem-Bhakti and Yoga of Inner Light and Sound)

Love and Meditation (Prem-Bhakti and Yoga of Inner Light and Sound)

"The practice of Surat Shabd Yoga [Inner Light and Sound Meditation] is dependent on the love generated in the devotee's heart for the Supreme Being Radhasoami Dayal [Compassionate Lord of the Soul]. The Radhasoami Faith therefore advocates the blending of Yoga with Bhakti [love and devotion]." (Agam Prasad Mathur, Petals of Love)

The Secret to Igniting your Ultimate Creative Capacity

By Jafree Ozwald

“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds, it will get you nowhere.
Live instead by intuition and inspiration, let your whole life become a revelation.” ~Eileen Caddy

The mind is naturally creative. It is always generating thoughts in every moment of our lives. Whether these ideas are new revolutionary self realized thoughts, enlightening "million dollar" ideas, or mundane complaints about the neighbor next door, the creativity in your thinking is always available. The results you get all depends on whether the gateway to your ultimate creative capacity is fully fresh and open, or operating out of a past program. Most people believe that there are only a few gifted creative individuals born in this world, while the rest of us unlucky folks tend not to be so creatively endowed. The truth I've found is much more empowering and radical. I've discovered a technique that your average human being can access a limitless resource of creative juice that will fuel them forever, helping them to access the power they need to manifest anything their heart desires.

When you take a good long look at the mental nature of a human being, you'll see that there is a natural tendency towards being creative. This creativity is often overlooked as we are continuously inventing every detail of our lives in each breathing moment. We are creation-a-holics! Every thought you're thinking right now is creating something into your future. The question is are these thoughts in alignment with what your heart truly wants to manifest, or are you still selling yourself short and settling for what you don't want? Either way, you are still creating your reality, inventing the dream you're living in, in every single instant of your life.

Sometimes it happens that we get into patterns of thought and rut-like habits where we may forget about our unbounded potentiality as a soul and restrict our greatest creative capacity. We can feel blocked, stuck in an emotion, a past memory, or a sensation of not being able to get where we want to go. Something always happens along the winding path of life where we forget the all powerful being who we truly are. We get preoccupied with some thing, and the glass around the mind's lamp gets fogged up with "more important" ideas than being vast, free and creative.

To start transcending through any old dense cloud your mind is in, just take a good long look at what is around you, one of the most amazing, powerful and highly effective things you can do to instantly skyrocket back into your ultimate creative capacity is to go deeper into this stuck energy and allow yourself to do absolutely nothing. That's right, take a vacation from talking, doing, achieving, exploring, examining, discovering, learning, growing and just practice being still. If you need something on your agenda to do, then plan to stare at the clouds floating by in the sky for an entire day! Just by relaxing into your body, you free up the ultimate creative energy in your mind. The simple soft experience being alive, completely present to this divine presence that you are, will open the floodgates to infinite creativity! The secret is to let go of your mind deep enough and for a long enough period of time where you can become absolutely still.

Having nothing to do on your agenda instantly creates a vacuum-like energy, and this succulent taste of emptiness will cause massive amounts of new creative juices to start bursting again from inside! Nature abhors a vacuum, and if you can truly do nothing, be nothing, think about nothing, feel nothingness at the core of your being, you will be blown away at the creativity that naturally arises. I guarantee it. The best part is that this new creative flow which instantly comes in will be fresh, powerful and thriving with such juicy aliveness that it will take a hold of you and pull your life into total inspiration. This energy is always here, always available for you to receive and relax into.

"Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, 'You owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky." ~Hafiz

The only reason you may have felt blocked in your creative exploration of your life is because you haven't been able to let go of the mind's constant need for entertainment. The addictions and distractions we are accustomed to completely stop us from dropping the demanding, commanding desiring mind. So make it a priority to be empty, be still and stop working on anything. You'll see a creative miracle explode naturally from inside. It may take you 10 minutes or 10 hours, yet once you truly allow your mind the time to relax, do absolutely nothing, and be nothing you'll find that life is purely orgasmic.

The moment you make time for nothingness in your life, honoring it as The Gateway to the Divine, you'll allow yourself to feel into the heart essence of what absolute 100% nothingness feels like throughout the body. When you can experience this everyday, your entire life will blossom. It's like hitting the reboot button on your computer. As your bodymind resets itself, your eyes become clear again, your heart opens fully again, your sexual energy feel reborn again, and you discover a brand new experience of your life! All your so called "problems" become dwarfed in the presence of your creative geniusness as you find out there only exists the illusion of your so called "problems".

With practice of soaking your mind in the feeling of vast emptiness, you'll be able to do it anywhere at anytime instantly. You'll be able to drop into it for 30 seconds while resting at a long stop light, or perhaps while you're getting exercise walking around the block. It truly only takes a few seconds of complete immersion into pure nothingness to get a full reboot and recharge. Its that powerful!! You will be able to do it at work, in the middle of a phone call or business meeting and become an outrageously creative outlet that will skyrocket your career. In the field of nothingness the mind has access to the infinite realm of possibilities in the Universe. By thinking of nothing you have access to everything. You're able to think of 108 different new solutions and each one will work. The old worn out so called "problems" you've had, have no chance when met with the creative light found inside pure nothingness. This may be one of the greatest benefits humanity discovers, because from exploring nothingness we each can feel unstoppable, and instantly discover the pure healing joy and creative power of simply being alive.

"Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach - how you look at things. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely economical, then it is creative." ~Osho

When you realize how easy it is to stop having problems in your life, your community will start hearing the greatest belly laugh hitting the sky. You will be laughing constantly when you know how to be free from your problems, which is what it feels like being connected to this unlimited flow of creativity. It's all about surrendering to it, becoming a living example of this divine flow and cosmic creative spark that you discover hidden inside an infinite field of nothing. So I invite you to make the decision right now that everyday this week you are going to immerse yourself in nothingness and let yourself skyrocket your creative capacity to the next level! This means that you are willing to welcome any problem you have, any dull ordinary boring thinking patterns you're stuck in, any dreadful emotion you're facing, and bring them all into the field of nothingness where they can be liberated.

The commitment to practice being nothing will allow you to feel the divinely sacred being that you are. You will naturally want to take better care of yourself, be more sensitive to your needs, loving and accepting who you are, being even more gentle with yourself, and only doing the actions that give you TONS of happiness and long term energy. Sure, you may have soooooo much new creative energy that you have to find a new job you really love doing, or spend more time with those people you really care about, yet its good to inquire into your priorities and notice how much time do you feel you have left here on Earth?

By choosing to live at this divinely creative frequency you'll discover that some people won't be able to handle the new levels of joy and happiness you'll be experiencing. Do not lower your divinely happy creative vibe to be in rapport with anyone who always brings you down. You're not doing a service to others or yourself by lowering your frequency, choosing to be less happy, less joyful, less creative and alive. You are still that wildly creative child adored by God who has the most outrageous courage, curiosity and imagination! You can be joyfully entertained by the fantasies in your mind 24 hours a day. That capacity to enjoy your imagination and not be a slave to it, is where real mastery of your life is found.

When have taken the time to explore true nothingness, then stop, breathe and notice what is around you. You are surrounded by creativity! Everywhere you look you can see, touch, hear, feel and experience pure creativity! Everything you see was either created by man or God or both! This entire world is an ocean of constant creative explosions! When you truly look into life you'll see how obvious it is that you also are The Source of this powerful creative energy itself. You can play in this amazingly creative world as an innocent child again, who is now wise enough to know you are not small and powerless, yet that you can manifest and attract anything you desire. It is through this child that you'll know just how incredibly powerful you actually are.

Rooting yourself in that playful trusting fun-loving child inside you is the golden secret to establishing a long term creative bounty. Absolute fun and creativity is just waiting for your permission to come out to play! Free your child up right now and give him/her full permission to PLAY at your work, relationships, finances and health all month long! You can find the middle path of responsibility along the way, just let her/him dance to the music, laugh at life, be wild, free, crazy, draw out your dreams, play fantasy, make up silly stories about things you manifested and sing happy love songs to your dream partner! Do this for a few hours and I guarantee you will discover something quite magical bubbling up inside you. That sacred stream of creativity has become completely unblocked, and is now pouring over you like a waterfall of yummy liquid loving light!

Every moment of your life is an opportunity to ascend to a higher dimension of consciousness. What this means in the practical sense is only doing things, being with people and living a live that makes your heart sing! If you cannot find what it is that makes your heart sing then find what is blocking you from it. Look what the feeling is, is it something that makes you want to cry or become angry? Go into it and use everything to bring you into higher conscious. Use the dark and the light experiences to push you deeper into your core. They are the fuel that will spark the light to get your creative engines really roaring tonight!

Lastly, in the world of unlimited creativity, it's always good to know that there is no such thing as stepping into the same river twice. Life is constantly providing you with completely brand new experiences in each moment. Your job is to not try to go back into the past to hold on and recreate the good experiences you cherished, or resist the negative experiences that haunt you. Your job is to trusting being in THIS free creative and juicy moment that is here now!

When you let go of the banks of the river and go with the flow with life, allowing the current to take you downstream, you will relax, heal and merge with the Ocean. You will only feel tremendous joy, bliss and ecstasy inside. This is a natural occurrence when you are flowing along with the Ocean of momentary existence. You don't have to try very hard to get here, for the water in the river flow is already an intimately connected part of the Ocean. You simply have to trust the river, enjoy floating with the current and you'll naturally discover the creative fun flow of energy moving through you as well. Enjoy!

Economics - What Year Is It?

Economics - What Year Is It?

Carl Jung wrote, "Your vision will become clear only when you look inside your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens." Jung (July 1875 - June 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and founder of analytical psychology. Jung is considered to be the first modern psychologist to state the human psyche is 'by nature spiritual.'

Jung divided the psyche into three parts, identifying the ego with the conscious mind. The second part, Jung believed was closely related to the personal unconscious, which includes anything which is not presently conscious, but can be. Deviating from Freud, Jung identified the third part of the psyche as the collective unconscious. The collective unconscious is a reservoir of one's experiences as a species, a kind of knowledge one is born with. Yet, few people are directly conscious of it. It influences all of one's experiences and behaviors, especially the emotional ones, but one knows about it indirectly, by looking at those influences.

Deviating from Freud's theories, Jung posited that intrinsically everything that transpires is from the inside out. However, western culture has woefully ignored Jung's theory. The majority of people wait for and expect someone or something to happen outside to create their lives.

Based on Jung's theory, you are a collective consciousness and you, as a part of the outside collective consciousness, are the creativity and the creator of your life, no matter what is going on outside of yourself. You have a choice as to how you participate (or do not) with the outside collective known as 'they.' 'They did not do... They did...' It is an American habit to disavow oneself of all responsibility for anything, including one's health, wealth and happiness.

What have we learned from history? Will today's issues affect your results tomorrow, next week, next month, next year or the next generation? The following headlines are from Time Magazine 1974 - 2008 year. The top economic headlines for 2009 - 2012 are more of the same.

Time Headlines:

1974: "Energy Crunch: Real or Phony?"

1975: "Doctoring the Economy, What will work?"

1979: "The Energy Mess"

1981: "The Ax Falls"

1982: "Unemployment, the Biggest Worry," "Interest Rate Anguish"

1984: "That Monster Deficit, America's Banks Awash in Troubles"

1986: "High Tech Wall Street, Is It Good for America?"

1987: "The Crash"

1990: "High Anxiety (Looming Recession, Government Paralysis and the Threat of War are Giving Americans a Case of the Jitters)"

1992: "The Recession - How Bad Is It?"

1998: "Is The Boom Over?"

2001: "How to Survive the Slump?"

2008: "Surviving the Lean Economy"

2009: Financial Headline: "A Catastrophe - 2009 will be the crisis of the economic system,” said Mohamed El-Erian, co-CEO of Pimco in a CNBC interview. “So the news is going to be full of unemployment, defaults, etc.”

2010: The struggling economy was voted the top business story of the year by U.S Newspapers

2011: Debt dominated business headlines in 2011 as U.S. Household debt-to-income rose to a record 149 per cent higher even than in the U.S.

2012: Sluggish global economy dominated business headlines.

Los Angeles Times article, "To celebrate the first major fuel crisis the retail price of a gallon of gasoline shot up from 38.5 cents in May to 55.1 cents in June 1974. The New York Stock Exchange shares lost $97 billion in value in six weeks."

If you did not see the dates for these headlines, would you think they were the headlines in 1974 - 2012 or would you think they all belonged to 2008 - 2012? Are you seeing the picture? What are you seeing? What is real, and what is contrived? That is the million-dollar question. Even during the Great Depression, the severe economic crisis supposedly precipitated by the U.S. stock-market crash of 1929, millionaires were made. However, this is not about being a millionaire; it is about creating stability, good health, healthy relationships and creating your economic future, creating the abundant life you deserve.

Fear destabilizes life, upsetting the health and relationships of anyone who allows it to affect them. The news media, powerbrokers and politicians want you to belief the 'sky is falling.' Yes, it is tough to be laid off or seeing your friends or family get laid off, or if you own a business to see your products or service in a slump. Yet, fear is NEVER the reality. It is the contrived perception from the powerbrokers through the media that many people accept as their reality. Fear sells news. The media wants you to listen so you will hear the advertising...STOP listening to the news and you will no longer have fear about the economy.

There IS money to be made in any economy. The powerbrokers know that truth. More millionaires are made in a down economy than any other time. You need to think, 'outside the box,' and see the situation in a different light.

What you focus on is what you attract. Yes, the Law of Attraction applies in every situation-albeit the analysts are predicting doom and gloom, you can move 'outside' the current paradigm.

If you talked to Warren Buffett, he would tell you to analyze what you can do-versus what you can not do. Buffett did not become the richest person in the world for many years by worrying about a down turn in the economy or doing what everybody else does. He developed and worked a plan to continue to grow his wealth. When everybody else is selling their stock, Buffett is buying.

Yes, he gets 'sweetheart' deals, and you are not Warren Buffett. However, my point is this, 'in tough times, you have choices, even though they are few. You can give up or think, 'outside the box.' Instead, of seeing the glass as half empty you can see it as half full. Instead of thinking and focusing on doom and gloom you can develop creative strategies to stay ahead of the 'so-called' trend.

The economy rises and falls in response to what people are thinking, creating and willing to put into it. Likewise, we have inside ourselves an inner economy that falls in response to our beliefs about what is possible or impossible-positive, negative or neutral.

It takes courage to stand up to the prevailing fear paradigm. The fact is that the molecules of fear are very dense, heavy and restrictive and they block the creative process.

As shown in the top prevelent headlines; the stories are the same year after year. Are you willing to continue to buy into the same old rhetoric or will you begin to create your life as you choose, not as the media, politicians, powerbraokers and pundits program you to do?

Now is the best time to create, implement and manifest your best life, because it is the time in which you live, for better or worse. Right here, right now - is the only time that counts.

Now is the time to let go of the stifling fear. Look inside yourself and listen to the whisper of confidence that lies within each of us. The collective unconscious that lies within reach, but few reach it. You can use your innovative spirit to create a new paradigm, a new product or industry, bringing prosperity to yourself, your family, your community and generations to follow. You can be the next success story or the paradigm shifter who, 'stepped out of the box' forever. You will be joining many who came before you. And no doubt many, who will follow in your footsteps.

You can not change the past, but individually and collectively you can change the future. Reflect on these past headlines and create positive headlines. Time really is on your side, if you see the past for what it is...a lesson you can choose to learn from. The future is just one second from now. Your future is what you make it, and time is on your side as it does not stand still, albeit people do. You can be the one who changes the paradigm for yourself--no one can stop you.
