What Is the Deepest Seeking of Your Heart?

When you come into life in the world, you have the five senses to help you learn your way around.

Your eyes may be closed. You may not see very well. You do not always listen well to what is being said to you, if you listen at all, for your mind is often thinking ahead. You may well not know what you touch or taste or smell. The thing is that much of your life is spent not seeing, not looking, not hearing, not listening to what is said and so on. You prefer to have your mind set irrelevant of anything that could change your mind. There is a tendency for you to hold fast and not rock the boat of yourself.

This is part of your holding on so tight. This is part of your attachment to attachment. You may well think something will be at stake if you opened up to new seeing and hearing.

One way or another, life will open you up, and you will, indeed, change your mind.

How do you grow and learn unless you change your mind? You may have given your mind responsibility to hold tight. You could let your mind grow loose. You could let the refinement of your heart and soul lead the pack. Your heart, the beloved growing bulb of your throbbing heart, is meant to steer your boat.

The Hearing Essay - Evelyn Glennie

A studio photo of Evelyn from 2005Music represents life. A particular piece of music may describe a real, fictional or abstract scene from almost any area of human experience or imagination. It is the musicians job to paint a picture which communicates to the audience the scene the composer is trying to describe. I hope that the audience will be stimulated by what I have to say (through the language of music) and will therefore leave the concert hall feeling entertained. If the audience is instead only wondering how a deaf musician can play percussion then I have failed as a musician. For this reason my deafness is not mentioned in any of the information supplied by my office to the press or concert promoters. Unfortunately, my deafness makes good headlines. I have learnt from childhood that if I refuse to discuss my deafness with the media they will just make it up. The several hundred articles and reviews written about me every year add up to a total of many thousands, only a handful accurately describe my hearing impairment. More than 90% are so inaccurate that it would seem impossible that I could be a musician.

3 Ways To Look At Death Differently

By Ron Walter

Fear & Close-mindedness Are Arguably The Real Tragedy Of Death

There are those who just know how they’ll react if and when they have to confront their own mortality. They will freely admit that they’ll be petrified, and others are confident that they won’t be scared at all.

“Perhaps they’re right, or perhaps they’re projecting how they think they’re supposed to feel; in my case, neither fear nor bravery were the dominant notes, but rather one of spiritual and intellectual curiosity and edification,” says Ron Walter, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, successful businessman and advocate of ecumenical Franciscan spirituality.

“I recently had to face my own mortality once again as I dealt with effects of multiple myeloma and ensuing chemotherapy treatment. The encounter led me to a spiritual trek through philosophy, theology and science. In our evolutionary world, I suggest a view of death for we humans as yet another transition into a new form of being.”

GFP Newsletter - 4/18/2015

Trust does not mean that everything will be all right. Trust means everything is already all right. Trust knows no future; trust knows only the present. The moment you think of the future, it is already distrust.

The moment you start thinking, "Everything will be all right if I can trust," your mind is active, you are not trusting. You are simply trying to manipulate existence, now through passivity, but the manipulation is there. Inactivity is not trust. If this motive is there, that "Everything has to be all right for me," you are watching by the corner of the eye. You have not yet understood what trust is.

You are hanging between activity and inactivity, and activity and inactivity are just two aspects of the same coin. They are not opposites, they are complementaries. And you will go on hanging between those, wavering between those two, because when you will do something, sooner or later you will get tired.

Each action brings tiredness, and then one starts hoping that something will happen through inaction. If you are in inaction, through inaction you will get bored sooner or later. Every inactivity bores, and then you move to action. This is the duality of action and inaction. You have not yet known what trust is.

Trust is neither action nor inaction. Trust can act, trust can be inactive. Trust simply means all is already right; there is no need to hanker for something else. "A" need not be "B". Whatsoever you are, you are, and it is good. Relaxing into it does not mean becoming inactive - because you may be an active person, so if you relax in it, great activity will be released. Or you may be an inactive person: if you relax in it, great inactivity may be released. But that has nothing to do with you.

You are not deciding whether to be active or inactive; you are simply relaxing into whosoever you are. Then whatsoever happens happens, whatsoever is happening is happening, and all is good, because God is.

-Rajneesh

The Flower of Life: a Pattern That Makes up Everything Around Us

Physically, our world is made up of molecular and chemical arrangements and carbon based atoms vibrating away and being held together. Deoxyribonucleic Acids (DNA) are present in all life and are known to govern the way the proteins are distributed, as well as to have some influence over instinctive response and personality.

The earth itself is comprised of various elements with different makeups. Everywhere we look, there are patterns and cycles which persist without needing to be maintained: in weather, in every ecosystem including lakes and forests, and in the chain of life. Buried deeper beneath the more evident patterns that have been observed for thousands of years, there are more patterns at work which have been found in various aspects of life across the world. I’m referring to something which has many names: The Sacred Geometry, The Merkaba Construct, and the Flower of Life are just a few of the associated titles.

10 Things Children have to Teach Us

You don’t have to have children to be aware of the many wonderful ways they can light up your life, or generally teach you more than any yoda might be able to… despite the similarity in size. Spending more time with children and being receptive as well as guiding them is like a meditation in itself, teaching us many of the following things:

How to Let Go

The biggest ‘mistake’ that adults make in parent/adult-child situations and relationships is that the adult has all the answers. Our need to control and even have positive influence over a child directly reflects the egos need to be right. Kids will push our boundaries and push them to the limit, and as anyone who’s been around kids will know, the more you tell them not to do something, the more they will, even if it means having midnight feasts under the cover of darkness.

Stray dog travels 8 miles every night to feed her family

There are no shortage of stories of man’s best friend demonstrating their loyalty and heart. I have reported a few on this very website. However, every now and then a dog will stand out for their actions.

This is the case with Lilica, a Brazilian stray who has made the news recently. Every night, Lilica takes an 8 mile round trip, braving the busy streets of San Carlos to visit a woman who leaves out a food parcel for her.

Lilica then brings it back to the junkyard where she lives. Without touching a morsel of what’s inside until she has returned, Lilica shares the food with the other animals in her junkyard ‘family’ – a dog, a cat, a few chickens and a mule.

The Science Behind Torsion Fields

Flower of Life

Brendan D. Murphy, Contributor
Waking Times

The first research generally credited with the discovery of this “fifth force”-torsion-was that done in the late 1800s by Russian professor N.P. Myshkin.1 Einstein’s colleague Dr. Eli Cartan first coined the term torsion in 1913 in reference to this force’s twisting movement through the fabric of space-time-but his important work was virtually buried by the rampant success and notoriety of Einstein’s theories. In the 1950s-the same decade Watson and Crick discovered the helical structure of DNA-pioneering Russian scientist Dr. N.A. Kozyrev (1908-1983) conclusively proved the existence of this energy, demonstrating that, like time (and somewhat like DNA), it flows in a sacred geometric spiral,2 as I detail in The Grand Illusion (TGI). Russian scientists are reported to have written thousands of papers on the subject in the 1990s alone

Psychedelics, Consciousness & the Birth of Civilization

Graham Hancock, Guest
Waking Times

**Note: This article is excerpted from the introduction of The Divine Spark: A Graham Hancock Reader: Psychedelics, Consciousness, and the Birth of Civilization. See more at The Divine Spark Library Page.

I’ve been very lucky; I feel I’ve been blessed; I’ve lived a blessed life. I’m grateful to the universe for giving me the chance to live this life.

But why am I here? Why are you here? Why are we all here on planet earth? Why are we conscious? What are our lives for?

Your Winding Path

In the course of your spiritual journey there will be those that say, “How wonderful!  You know you’re completely wrong…..this is the ‘right’ way.”  When this happens, please remember this; each of you was put here for your own special purpose, for your own growth and learning.  No one way is right or wrong.  If you do what your heart and conscience dictates, you will never be lead astray. ~ Creator

Things to Let Go to Make Sure You Are Chasing Your Dreams, No One Else’s

All too often we are told the things we need to do, and the things we need to give up in order to achieve some person we are being molded to be. While some of these events are valid, there are many times where people do not know what is best for your life, or your circumstances. When it comes to setting goals and chasing those goals, make sure it is relevant to you and your life.

Here are a few things you should let go of, and what you should replace them with.

THE Dream

There is a difference between chasing the “American Dream” completed with the white picket fence. But who wants that? If every house on your block was like that, it might start to remind you of something out of the Twilight Zone. Instead of chasing a dream that everyone else wants, chase what is important to you. For many of us this is easier said than done, but look for small ways to work towards your dreams. Age and circumstance should never stop you from being the person you have always wanted to be.

8 Survival Skills Our Great-Grandparents Knew But We’ve Mostly Forgotten

For better or for worse, our modern society has made us dependent upon what many of us call the system. We go to the store and there’s our food. We go to the local hardware store and there’s our tools and wood. We pay a bill and expect our homes to be warm. But we didn’t always live like that. There was a time before this supply chain existed where we did a lot more for ourselves. I’d like to talk about 8 survival skills you should relearn.

1. Gardening for food.

This is an important one. On an individual level, we become more self-reliant and healthy. In the larger scheme, locally grown food, and that includes food you’ve grown yourself, is a key part of poverty reduction and being able to effectively feed 7 billion people or more. But how is it done?

It’s not terribly difficult. At its most basic, all you need is sun, seed, dirt and water. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that, and this primer will help you navigate the process of starting your own garden.

2. Animal husbandry...

4 Shifts In Consciousness We Are Experiencing Right Now

Are you feeling any of these shifts? They might come to you subtly, gently or be the most intense experience of your life! Even if you can’t feel this consciously; unconsciously, there is a lot of activity happening. We are part of an incredible transformation that is attracting attention from around the entire universe!

Don’t believe it? You don’t need to. 

1. We are waking up.

This is a process that looks completely different for each person, and sometimes that process takes an entire (or multiple) life times. This starts with essentially questioning – everything. Why are we here? What is our purpose?
