An Experiment in Awakening Yourself

Most of this insanely behaving humanity is not yet wired and ready to consider what follows here. The vast majority of so-called civilized people riding on this planet are too steeped in drama, depression or distraction to take a serious look at it. I am not here to convince anyone of anything.  I offer this to reach receptive hearts. Introduction The time is now for more and more of us to awaken ourselves: to claim our power to be fully loving beings. The more who do this and the sooner we do it, the less suffering humanity will experience.  In an abundant world, there is no reason that 40,000 people should starve to death every day. There is really only one reason that we should be fighting our own selves and each other, and that is to eventually get fed up with such practice—fed up enough to respond to life in more loving ways. It is time to see that we are capable of dropping war, dropping barriers, dropping borders: dropping all fighting and all resistance. Dropping ego is basically why we are here.  For it is in releasing identification with ego that we open to the heart and set the stage for our outer harmony by creating inner harmony. The egoic mind does not want awakening. It wants conflict, battle and manipulation.  It refuses to respond in truly...

An Awakening Facilitation Experiment

At some point along the path, we come to the realization that the ways we have been responding to life have not worked and that it is time for experimenting with new approaches to living more powerfully. The time is now for more and more of us to awaken ourselves: to claim our power to be fully loving beings. The more who do this and the sooner we do it, the less suffering humanity will experience.  In an abundant world, there is no reason that 40,000 people should starve to death every day.  The nature of the inner Universe is harmony.  All we have to do is allow it. This simply means removing your attention and support from  that which sucks your energy. It is time to see that we are capable of dropping war, dropping barriers, dropping borders: dropping all conflict and all sense of division. Dropping ego is basically why we are here.  For it is in releasing identification with ego that we open to the heart and create outer harmony by claiming inner harmony. Awakening is not truly about learning something new or uncovering the secrets of the apparently external world.  It is about having the courage and trust to explore and unify that which is within us. Life is a series of tests, a classroom of sorts. Through experimenting with different ways of responding to...

Lessons from the NFL Abuse Scandal

Two Short and Simple Lessons from the NFL Domestic Violence Scandal There are two simple things we might learn from the recent National Footall Leage players domestic violence scandal.  For those of you not aware of it, one of the more popular players in the league was caught on video tape knocking his wife unconscious. The player, having been cut from the team and banned by the league, is petitioning for reinstatement. Another NFL player and former league Most Valuable Player has recently been arrested for abusing his young son by “spanking” him with a tree branch. Ironically, this same player lost a young son when he was beaten to death by the mother’s boyfriend. What can we learn from all this? 1) Could it be that it is best for society and its institutions to refrain from supporting—especially with multi-million dollar salaries—any employee who is convicted of (or where there is great evidence before conviction) abusing a wife, a child, or anyone? Does it make any sense to keep employing someone as an example of it being OK to abuse anyone?  Whether the athletes like it or not, they are role models for children…and for a lot of adults, too. If the player accused of child abuse is found not-guilty in court, then it gets tricky.  With the wife abuse, the evidence is on video tape for anyone...

Five Masks We Drop in the Process of Awakening Ourselves

In these times of such great challenge for so many, there are some who are ready to start moving beyond the old ways of responding to life that have not worked.  Most of humanity, in my perception, are still on the circular treadmlls of avoidance, frustration, anger, overwhelm and depression, so they will not be open to what is expressed here..  For maybe most of us, it takes getting fed up with the conditioned, often destructive ways we have been responding to life. I offer this only for those who are receptive to the idea that the solutions offered by society—the so-called solutions that have never had lasting positive impact—will not work, and that it is time to experiment with different ways of moving through our lives. For those who are indeed ready to accelerate the process of their awakening, spending 10 minutes with this article might be of great value in the creation of their intent to awaken. What is awakening?   Maybe it’s not about learning a lot of new stuff.  My definition: the process of letting go of that which sucks your energy and depletes the power of collective consciousness. Could it be that keeping these masks on depletes your power and that of collective consciousness? Could it be that unless you are already awakened, you are wearing at least one of these masks? We won’t get...
