“If you prefer smoke over fire then get up now and leave. For I do not intend to perfume your mind's clothing with more sooty knowledge. No, I have something else in mind. Today I hold a flame in my left hand and a sword in my right. There will be no damage control today. …
“Awakening is possible only for those who seek it and want it, for those who are ready to struggle with themselves and work on themselves for a very long time and very persistently in order to attain it.” ― G.I. Gurdjieff “In order to awaken, first of all one must realize that one is in a state of sleep. And in order to realize that one is indeed in a state of sleep, one must recognize and fully understand the nature of the forces which operate to keep one in the state of sleep, or hypnosis. It is absurd to think that this can be done by seeking information from the very source which induces the hypnosis.
My purpose is to Serve, what does this even mean? Serve who? Serve what? Serve your heart’s desires, but not your heart’s whims, meaning serving a deeper purpose and more profound truth, yours! How do you find this deeper truth? As you search inside you awaken to it, and yes we are all perfect now with our imperfections, but I believe that we can become much more than our thoughts and basic desires. I also believe that we should strive for more, evolution did not stop when we grew opposable thumbs. SOMETIMES I THINK OPPOSABLE THUMBS WERE INVENTED SO TEENAGE GIRLS COULD USE TEXT MESSAGING. DIANE LANE LIVING YOUR TRUTH As for me personally, I have found what it is to live by my truth; it is to allow and aide others to reach their full potential, and to help this planet and it’s inhabitant to take the next step, or giant leap in human evolution. It is to allow the mind to reach its full capacity, so humanity can truly reach for the stars as we have brought peace to all corners of our planet. The idea here is that before going off exploring the stars, shouldn't we take care of our Earthly problems first, and most urgently:
Why blog about the spiritual side of Success? I would like to first say that I truly believe that we are in the process of awakening as a species to realize that we are more than our bodies, our countries, our minds, and at the moment, the powers that be do not want us to wake up. They prefer keeping us divided by nationality, by race, by class or wealth, by education, as division is the best way to keep people in line and under their control. I also believe that the new age group of practionners (lightworkers, healers, clairvoyants, and a number of others that believe we are on the wrong path), have a lot of difficulty understanding that money is a tool and thus is not bad or evil onto itself. Its uses can be good or bad, depending on the person using it and for what purpose. What I truly believe is you can be a success in life, AND still provide true lasting value to others in a deeper sense than offering them the latest gadget or Gucci footwear… I believe this book, and review will help you understand that you can be wildly successful and still offfer your messages of love, hope, compassion and peace ! I think Deepak Chopra is a great indicator to this as his Success is worldwide and his books are an inspiration to millions. “Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease. And yet success, including the creation of wealth, has always been considered to be a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered to be at the expense of others. We need a more spiritual approach to success and affluence, which is the abundant flow of all good things to you. With the knowledge and practice of spiritual law, we put ourselves in harmony with nature and create with carefreeness, joy, and love.” ~ Deepak Chopra from The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Eckhart invites us to observe our thoughts, and to start taking notes of old repetitive thought patterns that keeps us at a standstill in our life. These thoughts when changed, begin to change your life. The more you stop identifying yourself to these thoughts, the more you can start nurturing your deeper, authentic self, and start living a more profound and deeper existence! “I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people’s thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes serious leakage of vital energy.”~ Eckhart Tolle
What does Nature mean to you? That is the question we must ask today, is it just a commodity that we can price, frack, clear-cut, farm, mine, and exploit. Or is it something more profound, something deeper, something that you feel deep in your heart, in your soul.
