There is a radical way to view our waking reality.
Pretend It’s T.V.
When we drop all Story from “who we are” there is the simple experience of Being Alive. I suggest that that feeling of Being Alive is really what you are and everything on top of that most basic state is just “Story”.
You are connected to everything in this Stream of Life once you drop the Story.
Let Go and Be Free.
Life happens. Sometimes its good, sometimes it sucks. Nothing is for certain and nothing lasts forever.
How do we find peace in life when it is always on the move? Where is solid ground within the chaos we can find ourselves in?
Silence within, silence to the voice of judgment; not by fighting, but by relaxing into and beneath the mental noise and clutter.
Have you ever been in a conversation and a great idea pops to mind? Its hard to hear the other person; your great idea just rearing to come out as the other person talks on. This is how I have seem myself and others lead their lives at times, just waiting to get the end result we were after and not really caring about the other person. But what we don’t often see is what we miss when we ‘shut down’ briefly when we want to jump in, as they are ultimately looking for love from us with our attention.
Or have you ever been so mad or upset that you can feel the energy in your body want to burst fourth? That almost religious fervor boiling in your blood at some injustice. That energy is useful, our ideas in a conversation are useful; only on the extent we can give them up, however. And Silence is the Path.
When we create a ‘Black Hole’ within ourselves of Silence while in daily life it creates a vacuum that can facilitate Freedom. Not necessarily physical freedom, more of a Harmony in the moment. Its almost like the ‘Spirit Eater’ guys of Harry Potter, only in reverse. When you empty yourself, and I mean as completely as you can, in the moment with someone or some issue there is an energy exchange that I don’t understand but have felt and seen. When we drop our own Story and allow the Story around us to dissolve in our own internal Silence, there is a spaciousness that forms around us like a fresh of breath air.
That center of Silence within you gives a Strength that is hard to fathom. To find that center, Meditation helps tremendously. Three periods a day of 10 minutes is a great place to start if you have some meditation background. Just remember “Its OK if it Sucks”, if you are ‘horrible’ at meditation that is fine. If ten minutes is too much, start with 1 minute three time a day, go to 2 after a few weeks, exe. Make it easy on yourself to start and keep it going. Just keep releasing and resting in Silence.
This isn’t easy, but it works.
Let Go into Silence and be Free.
The world feels odd right now. Its like everything has shifted slightly.
It feels difficult to find consistency in this shifting landscape.
Free-fall into the Nothingness within this Moment.
Each moment is like a flipping of pages. Each its own eternity. Each never to reappear the same way again.
Each moment is a snowflake. Fleeting and unreal except for a brief image. The only thing gluing them together is the Story we have about it.
The only thing that is Real is the blank background behind the Story. The blank white paper under the writing is always the same, and its the same blank white page for all of us. We all tap into the same feeling of being alive as everyone else. Beneath the superficial differences in appearances, we are all the same.
What you are will never change and the “Story” will never stay the same.
Rest in the Nothingness behind every Moment and be Free.
The concept came out of my frustrations with the Occupy Movement several years ago. I saw how many people pointed to others for their problems without seeing how they themselves may be apart of that same problem. That experience with organizing a group and protesting gave me a great insight into how people function. Many, I feel, are afraid or shamed to look at themselves. To clearly see both the good and bad of the situation and life they find themselves in. To look with awareness at your life alone, can create change just in itself. What gets measured, gets managed; and what gets managed, improves.
Cannabis has been a tool to ‘measure’ my life; a magnifying glass, when used correctly, that can show areas that need improvement or attention. Cannabis has also helped with pain and meditation among other things. But for today, I want to focus on Success.
What is success? I believe it is ‘continuous movement in the direction of your (individual) Dreams’. Success is the joy of the journey YOU set for yourself. But how do you know if its YOUR journey or one someone else ‘gifted’ to you (read: put on you).
Break Free and Be You! I hope this video helps get you on your way.
Define what Success means to you and move in the direction of your Dreams.
Never Stop Dreaming!
Float through life.
Like the weather, we cannot predict the events of our day or the unfolding that life will bring. When we push or pull against the unfolding of life, like the resistance of the weather to be other than it is; there is a type of emotional pain.
I have heard it put that we can “collapse time and space” by feeling like we already have what we want. You can feel the sunshine from the inside; even when its pouring rain. Have what you want NOW, not in the future. FEEL it as yours in this moment, the ONLY moment that exists (for it is the FEELING we are after, not the ‘thing’). The future will always run away, like a mirage. This one moment is all that is real. “NOW” is all that will ever exist. FEEL it as yours NOW, and rest in the HAVING feeling. Resist the urge to think otherwise, its the inner that must change before the outer. When you own the feeling of having what you want with no resistance the outer will change on its own. It has to. Let the life you want, come to you by ALLOWING.
Think about it, does your body not age around an Ageless Center? The ‘You’ that perceived your childhood had not changed in adulthood, just the stories and themes that are playing out on that blank perceiving canvas that has always been with you (or maybe IS you…). Allow yourself to rest as that Ageless Center. Know what you want (writing it out helps) and own the FEELING of already having it. That is how you collapse ‘space and time’.
So float through life. Let what comes, come. Let what goes, go. And rest in what remains no matter what.
Let Go and Float Downstream.
You got this!
This is a great process on how to Hack Your Goal based on an excerpt from Tim Ferris’s newest book Tools of the Titans.
Take your List (100 things you want to Be, Do and Have) and whittle it down to 10. Take that ten and see if there is ONE that would make all the others less important. The ONE that is most important to you. Them write it 15 times a day in a powerful affirmation. Do it every day at the same time and watch you life slowly flow to that reality.
