Candle in the Wind

Candle in the Wind 🍁
Inline imageInline image
February 5, 2021

You can open the door to a new world. What will you eventually find in that world? The old world has gone dark. Light the candle of imagination and the heart, but don’t open the door to the wind blowing in. Keep the candle of light burning in the dark while opening the door to the light within you. That candle is in you…love and awareness need not flicker or ever go out as it is the guide of the divine energy that sustains truth for a superconscious living.

Milque-toast courage is to not follow the path of evolving consciousness and is characteristic of the feeble, week, and meek minded. Don’t be a Caspar Milquetoast. A candle loses nothing if it is used to light another one. First, give to yourself for without caring for yourself, how can you care and give to others? You come first to take care of so that others can benefit.

A candle gives light to the heart of darkness. The candle in you is in the heart. It actually needs more ‘wind’ to give light. Deep breathing creates love. Someone you’re intimate with automatically opens the heart with heavier breathing. Love with someone is a form of meditation. Love is the candle that lights itself. However, if you’re waiting for love you ain’t going to get too far. Mind over matter. Life will chew you up if you don’t come out of the dark of your selfish desires. Are you really ready?

Sin is something that harms someone else, and ultimately yourself. Perhaps the greatest sin is to live a life that isn’t nurturing to the heart. Negative habits accumulate and that negativity shelters the heart like a dark house with closed shades to keep the light out. The mind often creates the shades or barriers to the opening of the heart even when someone comes with a candle of love where the mind conjures up it’s defenses usually learned as a protective devise from hurt and lack of trust. When the candle of love comes, the door must be open to the heart and if it’s open, the light of love will blow out if you don’t submit to it at the door. Surrender then happens when you have let go of the mind, letting the light come in with no barriers.

It is very easy to run from everything including your true self, becoming more difficult to wake up. One day you become locked out without knowing that you have the key. The key is always there, but you can become more blinded in self denial. Love waits for you to see and feel it. Letting go of the fear of love and realizing that it is the secret to life blossoming. Light the candle within, and let all negativity not blow the winds of fears to ‘letting go’ while accepting love overtaking you!

Stop! … Be Positive

S T O P…Be Positive! 🌷
Inline image

February 1, 2021

Stop before you say it or do it, as the perception of the one receiving might just have difficulty handling the traffic of your words or deeds. Right or wrong may not matter if the message is perceived as you running their ‘red light’. WE have, at this time in immediate history become burned by a tsunami of word hatred sometimes even words that are otherwise by the use of one letter replacing another becomes capable of eliciting reaction or agreement. It’s not just our personal interaction, but society at large needs all of our coming to the same page of ‘stopping’ and realizing that we need to step up to a new world, and be examples for ourselves and others, especially the younger.

Technological acumen to control and dumb down the populace is moving ahead at breakneck speed while the growth of the human condition is parked somewhere in the middle decades of the last century. It’s sadly a perfect time for the ‘dark side’ to do what it wants to further control the world.

It takes simple logic to see that massive destruction and unnecessary loss of life, or on a personal level a sense of loss of being, will continue to escalate. It’s a good thing for those in control and all the nice sheeple deserve it for not paying attention. Today even most of the Christian population is asleep at the wheel and not following the wisdoms in their religion. I say that as a non Christian. Knowledge to evolve inwardly and for society is free, yet most would rather spend money and sell their souls to the material life thinking that the secrets to life are but unreachable fairy tales. Christianity has become like a swamp or a desert with any oasis seen without thankfulness beyond use and abuse. The slaughter of the lambs is their punishment for apathy and denial.

The clock of life needs a ‘reset’ to accommodate and adapt to the spiraling technology that is happening to improve our lives, but increasingly is being used by those who don’t care enough but for their benefits. Life doesn’t exist for you, but you are here to make the best of it and give back for the blessings that you were given in this life at the most interesting time since the planet’s formation. There are no wrong turns, for wherever we travel we can learn and teach, give and receive. Always enjoy yourself, yet give to others from your heart.

DARKNESS hides all. If you want to do anything to darkness, you must use light. Bring light in and darkness disappears. However, if you bring darkness into light, darkness is weakened. Likewise you can not solve anything with hate either. Since the advent of the internet, we can search the world for an answer to any question by using some companies developed tool to ‘browse’ the world for any question. You too have been blessed with tools to open the shutters to let the light in.

We’re always running out of time, and it’s time to hit the road at finding where love is hidden within. No speed limit! It’s in plain sight if you let go of the barriers that only you have constructed. The gates of awareness really opened as you reached adulthood for you to see that you’ve traveled this far, and sometimes the road has been difficult (and will have new moments of difficulty), but now’s the time to throw off the shackles of ‘self barriers’, be they hurts, depressions, anxiety, stress, unhappiness, etc.

Accepting and not resisting this, is the first and most important inner skill in this frenetically changing, modern world. Just like in the cold of the winter, if we are fortunate to live in a modern house we have a thermostat that regulates the heat for best comfort. Searchin’ within is where all the answers are by turning o the lights of awareness. Before a footrace, you have to warm up. In the human race, to warm up to a clear outlook, try breathing slowly and deeply for a few minutes when the negative is closing in.

There is nothing more real than the inner space within each of us that never ever changes. We may change our thoughts, our feelings, even our sense of who we are, but we fail to visit the unchanging center of our own self. The ability to be in this inner space, where our peace is found, when all around would prefer chaos and crisis, is the deepest spiritual change skill. It is the eye of the storm, it is the oasis in the desert, it is the place where peace is power. Unlock the adventure of feeling love everyday, and as many moments as possible.

If I want more flowers in my garden, I start planting them. If I want more love in my life, I start spreading it. Surround yourself with what you like by continuously generating it! The breath of love is in the air, all you have to do close your eyes, breath, and watch. Your inner browser will come up the love within.

Casting Stones

Casting Stones 😮
Inline image
January 25, 2021
Needless aspersions are an attack either on the integrity of someone, or just a deliberate offense while other options are available. Life is like ‘gardening’. If you want whatever you plant to grow the best it can naturally, you must be a good gardener sensitive to what is best needed for growth. The world is YOU! How others choose their world is their choice, but hopefully one that walks over the clouds of oppression.

Being mindful and heartful leads to Godful! Be generous with giving and receiving while using the best ‘skillful means’ available as an option even if it’s ‘tuf love’. Yesterday is but a memory that can’t be touched physically, but the moment is open to the best touches. Life is a school to build the fortunes of the soul that is present and goes on. It’s not about how far apart we are from the ‘soul’, it’s how close we can be! This is not just a world made of stone, so cast your thoughts and heart to the higher realms of consciousness. Open the eyes, heart and mind to make it a ‘clear day within’ for the light to shine as you are on your way.

When moving in the light, the feelings of being happy and even excited, beam into you and whatever you do. Throwing stones at yourself is self punishment that needs to be let go of, and it may be letting go of attachments to the past. Venture into the ‘light’ always. Plan for a miracle, and you’ll find when they come they were really a result of you giving and receiving the light. Doers get more done, meaning to live your higher thoughts in action. Life give rewards out to those that tune in to a harmony with it.

Seek and fuel the fire within for that which sees and gives the positive. Why be derogatory in any form to another especially yourself? Doing my ‘free speech displays’ downtown today, I had a small experience that has huge implications to greater life experiences. A nice man who collects cans for deposit of .10c per can, mentioned that someone had just beat him to one of our fancy trash receptacles, and went away with one can. Following behind him, the ‘nice man friend’ said he dug a little deeper and found 3 cans missed. The he ‘dug’ to the bottom of the trash and found 3 more for a total of 6 that the other had missed. My reply was that if we dig deeper into everything we’ll uncover more treasures that we didn’t think were there, especially within!

Be true to yourself by dumping all the past attachments to negatives, and be born again each day by putting it into your mind, and yet meditating to free the mind! Life has MANY treasures buried within for letting go of the ‘stuff’ blocking the view. If you do little to evolve, it’s a promise of hell when heaven is at hand. Makes no sense to run away from love and it’s virtues.

Negative Sees Negative

NEGATIVE Sees negative 👎

January 20, 2021

Years ago, I made a vow to turn all situations into the positive, and I mean ALL! The result was an experience(s) which enhanced life and deep love to this time. However as a few short years went by, and even now, the ‘negative’ must be appreciated and not seen because of only seeing the positive. There are times, with what we choose to do, our experiences or interactions are such that the negative is hard to avoid, but it’s an opportunity to see how best to deal with it. Sometimes walking into the ‘fire of the negative’ sharpens how we can better see things and learn from them.

There are infinite degrees of negative and positive in people as well as knowing how to use each situation for the best outcome. Most negative people are also positive in different ways and yet some tend to focus on seeing the negative in response or reaction. They become sometimes like walking through a ‘minefield’. One wrong move, especially with the ‘slip of the lips’ can be forgiven, but sometimes never forgotten. It’s never wise to mix bad words with your bad mood. You will have infinite opportunities to change your moods, but not always the chance to take back your words.

Contrariness is a mindset that some have who seem to see everything different than who or what they are addressing. It’s a self revolving addiction that if you’re the ‘contrary one’ it’s time to ‘own it’, and make it a goal to park it where you forgot where you parked it. If you are the recipient, skillfully slip into silence and avoid conversations that spawn ‘contrariness’ as a positive and rational way to harmoniously position yourself to it. Friendships with those who are easily triggered or just naturally negative from habits that likely started in childhood need your positioning so you keep your boundaries of healthy demeanor.

The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives. One must be the change you want to see in the world. Being negative can be all consuming and self perpetuating. People make friends with their negativity and look for moments of light that actually keeps them thinking they are ok, convincing themselves that it’s just the outer world with its people that is negative. If one is psychologically healthy, there is little negativity within. Even negative on the outside is looked at as an opportunity to rise above it. Always be looking to make every moment as positive as possible, and dealing with any negativity with the best discernment of options possible. Always, a sense of humor soothes the soul for you as well as another. If your life doesn’t feel exciting most of the time, it might just be time to make meditating part of everyday life to lighten you up.

Communication Compromised

Communication Compromised 🙌

Inline image

January 16, 2021

Communication or mutual dialog can be what love, in its different ways, is all about. When communication becomes wordless between two open souls by flowing of receiving and giving, life is at its pinnacle of joy and blissfulness. However, millions who speak the same language present barriers or suppressions to the flow of verbal energy, that can be like climbing a rocky mountain. The art of communication comes naturally to some people, however anyone is vulnerable to another’s resistances to be a smooth dialoguer, but instead faced with an uncomfortable climb over jagged, slipper rocks.

This leads to a conversation from personal to also the whole society. One should never have to walk on eggshells either in a personal conversation with the threat of reaction or on a society basis. A compromise between good and evil spells death for the good. If I ask you to drink a cup of cyanide and you refuse, but we compromise on half a cup, who wins? The compromises serve as precedents that launch the next compromises and consequent government accretions of power.

Those who censor see no need to continue feigning fealty to anything other than subjugation and control. We are then confronted by a dystopian totalitarianism, the design of which the totalitarians are no longer trying to hide. Virtually everything has already been compromised and the meager remnant of freedom is on the table. As the crowd is prodded into the cattle cars (not social distancing, their well-being no longer even a faux concern) uneasy whispers circulate: is the final destination the abattoir or the slaughterhouse of free flowing communication?

The turning of people into appliances plugged into an all-seeing internet will leave everyone in an electric, behavioral, panopticon that’s as sterile and joyless for the watchers as the watched? Usurping freedom of thought and communication is to deny the potential of a superconscious being and society. The mother of what’s called pedagogy is the learning of skills to think for ourselves about problems and issues. In this case, why stunt evolving growth by not questioning if the self that interacts with the world is being compromised by refusal to learn and evolve using all skillful means available to the human mind and heart. The art of communication of listening and expressing is available free for those who want to give to themselves all the opportunity of experiencing empathy and compassion for others. Love and life’s fulfillments need no compromising.

Art of White Lie

Art of White Lie 👀
Inline image

January 10, 2021

Honesty, integrity and truth are cornerstones of a loving life. All my close connections in life have no censorship that requires walking on thin ice for fear of at least a verbal reaction that downsizes any love. The unimpeded flow of communication is a never ending delight and gift that one always wants and enjoys more of. The need to censor anything is a block to the love that can be. Of course, some relationships don’t allow free thought and connections, in which case it’s best to ‘harmoniously position’ yourself to them for the best connection even if it’s just a smile.

We all find occasion to reject and resist another person. It’s a great feeling of course to not have to go through that experience, but sometimes the ‘pains’ of the lack of smooth communication can, motivate to find ways to rise about it where there are no clouds of rain and storms. We all like to put up a fight against anything we dislike. But we forget that when we decide we will resist something or somebody, either mentally or physically, we only empower the object of our resistance, either in reality or in our own minds.

When, and if, you want to enjoy the ability to influence, always start with acceptance. If you want to disarm another, begin with acceptance. If you want to encourage and empower another to change, start with acceptance. Don’t make it conditional. Otherwise it’s just resistance disguised as acceptance, and you are still trying to control them. Call it a bit of deception to land you both on a more congenial wavelength. It has a sense of a ‘white lie’. White lies are always to not hurt anyone but may make the connection on any matter more acceptable.

I’m the first to admit that having enjoyed the bliss of being not only on the same page as someone, but on the same line of thought at all times. Still experiencing anyone who is challenged by their own internal way of communication, requires an art of navigation that can certainly be worth the outcome.

Have an open heart, but a flexible attitude especially where communication is like navigating a roaring stream while avoiding the dangerous rocks in the way of moving on. In a sense, the moments of rocky communications, metastasizes or contaminates all meanings of attempted dialog. Everything is not as it seems sometimes. Well, well, well … and especially

in the world as it is now. Even most love is tainted with revolving truth and lies, but if truth be know, not the kind of love that anyone wants. To find love, always focus on the positive, sensitive truth, and leave the only lies as ones with a ‘wink’. The path of the evolving spiritual is the path of love.

Daddy’s Fixin’ It

Daddy’s Fixin’ It? ⚒️️
Inline image
January 3, 2021
Well…that use to work for me and maybe you when we were younger. My daddy’s up in the sky, and he mainly was into family business…and good at it! Well then, there is a Father in the sky, apparently up down and all around 24/7! Now I’m not suggesting that this force is not nameless. We as humans like to give things names, and in our own language. To us the word is God … he’s the man, so to speak. Now at these crazy times that when we are suppose to individually and collectively evolve, there is a problem relying on the ‘daddy in the sky’ who’s going to fix everything.

If you’ve read this far, maybe it’s best you read no further if you’re easily ‘triggered’ by a ‘reality check’. Let me divert for a moment. I live in a ‘meditation center’ in Portland (here only maybe 1 out of 12 meditates barring the dude who endlessly drinks calling it meditation), that is called the Yesss Center which I started exactly 30 years ago in Venice Beach (LA) following a vision that my now deceased best friend and author of several books on mythicism of religions, (Acharya) were on a Sunday country drive near Waxahachie, Texas. During the drive among the cow fields, I had a vision to create some kind of ‘community’. The daddy in the sky may still be helping me, but….

People in America, as I write this, seem to think that there is a daddy in the sky who is going to fix things while not realizing that the age of AI or ‘artificial intelligence’ is being planned to robotize most humanity. Our minds are still stuck in decades ago where we could just assume one year was going to be like the next? From the 1950’s until 9-11 in 2001, it seemed so, then the bubble burst. 2020 was a year to begin chaos with a global virus and a draconian lockdown that leaves many questions as to why we are being manipulated (or are we?). Then there is the alleged vote fraud with a Presidential election that will always be contested.

We have over 50 ‘Think Tanks’ in the country like the Rand Corporation that is just blocks up from the Venice Boardwalk. They have some of the best brains in the world for hire to figure out how to do anything like ‘fix an election’ or put the world into ‘one world government’, or how to use ‘artificial intelligence’ to control people. The collective of people, sadly at this point, doesn’t like to think and leaves that, unknowingly, to Think Tanks and the political system that is mostly blackmailed to conform to a world ‘takeover agenda’.

Living in the heart is frequently ignored by the intellect, not to mention use of shear common sense. This current time is the ‘awakening chaos’ that is like a volcano erupting after millenniums of dormancy. The light is upon the earth for each of us waking up to new freedoms and consciousness. You’re invited!

Archeological Mind Dig

Archeological Mind Dig ⛺️
Inline image

December 16, 2020

Digging for the truth is to be a spiritual archeologist. Instead of the physical, digging, sweating in the dirt and rocks to find what lies beneath our view, searching and digging for the truth relentlessly is to live with an open mind and heart to see and feel beyond the illusions of partial or misleading information. The time for just absorbing ‘here-say’ from whatever source when deeper answers just need a little ‘digging for the truth’ is more available now than ever, rather than self-immolation especially if the collective people follow along like sheep to the slaughter.

Searching for truth or the ultimate answer to anything requires considering letting go of preconceived notions and any limitations of fulfilling expectations of what you want to unveil. A graphic example would be to search for the reasons why a family has a lot of yearly sickness when upon open minded investigation it could be found to be living in close proximity to a toxic chemical operating plant or refuse.

Likewise, how you were raised to adulthood in terms of love, discipline, experiences, conditioning, etc., sets you on a path that represents where you’ve come from. Whether that early path was troublesome or balanced and healthy or whatever, there will always be resilient adjustments to make every experience the best it can be. The answers are within each of use to what we are seeking that equates to the highest possibility not only physically, mentally, emotionally, but spiritually. Always be mindful of ‘karma’, or what goes around, comes around.

We are not just a body that translates experiences to who we think we are, but inside that body, including the brain, is a spiritual being that the body and brain through the heart and mind yearns for attention be it needing an archeological dig into the heart and mind to uncover the waiting spirit. To not see or feel that yearning is a choice to stay preoccupied by outer things while not paying attention to what all religions and/or spiritual teachings emphasize as the most important part of being here for a moment in time. Life can be ‘non stop’ ignoring what is most important to all life, AND that is love, and love deep within. That love to exist as much as it can doesn’t do as will with enemies inside, like hate and many other negativities. Love transposes hurts, pains, and all negativity if it is strong enough. Be strong and connect with your beautiful inner qualities!

Om-m-m – Hum di Hum..

Om-m-m – Hum di Hum… 🎼
Inline image

December 8, 2020

Nothing better than to clear the mind and open the heart. Presented here is a unique meditation combining the ancient sound of silence from past spiritual practices over the millenniums and modern ‘jingle chants’. They can be done for as little as a few minutes sitting, standing, lying down with eyes closed or with eyes open walking in the outdoors. In the East, all the religions without exception agree on this point, that the sound which is heard in the final, highest peak of silence is something similar to OM.

Being in the moment, especially invigorating while walking, take a deep, slow breath; and opening the mouth begin the sound of OM-M-M-M-M-M-M letting the moment come to a transition of joy, happiness, and positivity with any assortment of jingle chants of your selection, repeating it for as many times as you want always choosing to do the deep breath of OM first. (It just might clear all the coronavirus talk that is non stop)

When alone, be creative to clear the mind bringing in a sense of feeling better. For example, do Om-m-m-m-m and moving to ‘hum di dim di dum di dum’, Again, be creative. For example I came across a tune by the singer Suzanne Vega that uses another jingle you can add. It’s from these words:

‘’On a patch of sand where the warm wind blows

Not a TV set, not a radio

Just an old guitar when the sun sinks low

Down at the Lah De Dah’’ – Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, Lah di da di dah di dah di doo. When it feels right do another slow breathing of Om-m-m-m merging in to something like ‘Ba da ba boom ba da bing ba da boom etc…… and maybe, boom ba ba boom ba boom ba boom boom da da boom and maybe dum di di dum dum dum di di dum….zippity doo dah zippity day – my oh my what a wonderful day – da bum bum, da bum da bum bum bum, dada bum dada bum bum da bum – zippity doo dah zippity day, and then another ‘OM -m-m-m

Make it up and be unconventional, letting go of any judgement. Doing this mini meditation will make for lasting moments of healthy feelings. There are endless ways to meditate leading to living a more spiritual life while you walk in the blossoms and fragrance of meditation in a state of awareness and consciousness with an inner smile at how serious the world is sometimes. Om-m-m-m-m-m and the mystical, powerful, pure mantra – Om mani padme hum
