Meditate more!


images-1

The path of the human is that of constant meditation. Whatever your mind is  focused on becomes your meditation. Focused on what you don’t have, focused on being to fat or thin, big or small, rich or poor, all of those thoughts become your meditation and your reality. The truth is we are all meditating all of the time. We either fill our heads with directed thoughts of positivity, healthy visualizations or we are drowning in our thoughts of lack, unhappiness and whose fault is this anyway. The smart person puts the words meditate more in to their brain and then uses their tools to direct their thoughts and at the very least learns to quiet the mind if for no other reason than to give ourselves a break from the running commentary going on in our heads.

Parmahansa Yogananda said that the best meditation was to keep the word God on the tip of your tongue, in your head repeat the word God over and over again, God God God God God, every second. He said that the word God is a word of high power and vibration and that through repeating the word we could bring this higher vibration into our selves. Resonating a higher vibration increases light into the physical vessel bringing vitality and prosperity. Now I tell that to people, eyes glass over, heard it a thousand times, be spiritual and something will happen. They turn and continue walking down their road of darkness and insecurity.

Meditate more! Our thoughts of lack and rehearsed pain growing stronger with each repetition create a wall in our minds, a wall of our own making. This wall makes sure our lives are full of lack and a repeat of the constant pain we keep rehearsing, keeping the light out and the darkness of ignorance in. Changing our thinking to include the repetition of a higher vibrating thought or word lifts us from the burrowed thought channels carved in our minds. We can create new pathways that lift our mood and change our lives. That’s right, just with the repetition of a word.

Meditate more! I talk to spiritual people all of the time. it becomes rote to say we mediate to become one with God and the world around us yet these same people who know better are playing the same sound track in their head not truly understanding what it is to be one with God. That sentence scares them this ultimate truth that we are one with God. Meditate more! Because it’s the truth our true and rightful journey is not towards some earthly goal, it is to know with certainty that we are walking in a vessel containing the original spark of light and life, that is God, it’s right their in your heart, really right now, it’s inside of you! Cool right!

Meditate more! Make your thinking world more of your friend. This was the intent of meditation to regain control of our mind. The brain we can see and chemically change with pills, but the mind is a wild animal that invades your world, never seen, constantly controlling you. Yet, through right meditation it can be tamed and can I hear an amen!

Meditate more using words of higher vibration, get weird about saying the word God, say love, say light, say Jesus, Buddha, find a word that works for you and try it for a few days and see if the constant repetition of a higher vibration word helps move your thinking to a more restful and peaceful state.

Change your life, Meditate more!

Work past life’s difficulties

Life is full of difficulties, it just is. The question is how to maintain while going through them. Others might or might not support you because whenever any of us are faced with difficulties it makes everyone else duck and cover, “I don’t need your bad mojo all over me!” But we all know in the end we will each have to face days of difficulties, years, lifetimes. There is no way to know how your karma is going to play out in this lifetime especially if you are living life from a place of unconsciousness. If you still believe stuff just happens, might as well stop reading and move on to the next blog.

The entire point of having a spiritual practice is to learn to see what others look past. To learn and move with the universal energies. When there is a full moon things go one way when its waxing or waning, or when its dark, things goes a different way. Every aspect of the moons many phases plays with us and our lives. As well as the planetary line up at any given time day week month or year. There is so much affecting us from the unseen forces and yet many still choose to live with their heads in the sand not looking up to see what information is available to aid us on our journey. Believe me there is lots of aid available to those who would seek it out.

Don’t drown in your difficulties, do something! Be aware of what the universal forces are trying to communicate with you. Start paying attention. Add time out during your day to do breathing mediations or yoga then just be you, it would benefit each of us. This lifetime is our chance to express our unique voice not stay stressed out tripping over the many difficulties there are. We need you to be you. There really is no other person like you on the Earth. Yes, this is a good thing. Each of us must rise and share what gifts we have been given, to live our best life and to remember that when difficulties come that’s all it is, difficulties coming, given enough time, everything will pass.

Life is filled with difficulties, it’s just life, but the intelligent thinking person looks around at what they can use to move their life from a hella roller coaster ride to meandering through a park in a carriage. I am going to go get in my carriage right now! Enjoy your day.

beauty is simplicity

I got my butt out of bed and headed out my door down to the beach. It is such a joy to walk on the beach feeling the sand between my toes and laugh as the ocean spills its wave half way up my leg. I am sure I must look crazy as I am laughing to myself, talking to the birds, smiling at the children. My walking laughing meditation practice, simplicity!

So many people lose sight of the beauty surrounding them or get so caught up in the mundane business of running their lives they stop seeing the beauty that is all around. I see people so intent on their workout they have no idea how blessed they are to be walking, to be breathing, to be surrounded by the beauty of the ocean. Others have ear buds in their ears. What music has more effect on the soul as the sound of the ocean? We miss so much, so much, when we leave the beauty of the present moment lost in thoughts of; would of, could of, should of…

In the bible it says in Mathew …27“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28“And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,29yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.…

The beauty of truth is in its simplicity. We have made life something to conquer rather than live. We have made villains across the world over and we continually overlook the little guy in favor of power and greed. We forget so easily the wonder of our world and more importantly we forget that everything that is happening to us is a reflection of our own thoughts words and deeds. We have been given a great blessing to be alive and the ability to change everything about ourselves. We are alive, we are experiencing life, we are seeing things, doing things and walking on a planet that is serving us even as we continually treat it like our living room complete with maid service.

When each of us makes up our mind to let go of unrealistic goals for our body or mind and sit at the seat of our soul we will live the verses from Mathew fully present in the gift we are given. As we live in gratefulness of our lives and blessings we open space inside to receive even more. When we gracefully give of our blessings to those in need we are blessed again.

Living in simplicity, knowing our needs are met, and residing within our soul’s peaceful nature this will helps us understand that just ‘being’ will always ‘be’ enough. This is my yoga!

Blessings in spite of things.

My Dad once told me we never get things fixed in life, wise words. What we can do is realize we are on a journey called life and we are not here to fix ourselves into some kind of perfected set up. There is no; perfect job, place to live, perfect partner, kids, pets, teacher, preacher. Anything that is working right now may change just as you have gotten use to it. Kids first grade teacher a dream, second grade teacher a nightmare. Neighbors when you moved in, awesome, they move out, new ones move in, nightmare. Job is great until new boss, job sucks. It only takes one adjustment to throw your perfected thought into the nearest trashcan.

The list can go on of things that were ok for a while and become a nightmare at some point. It’s a drag for sure, favorite shirt gets a stain, favorite store closes, friends move away, on and on. Looked at now my Dads infernal obsession with Murphy’s law makes sense, ‘anything that can go wrong will’! Of course if you expect something to go wrong with every or even one aspect of your life, believe me it will, Murphy is cool like that.

But we all have heard by now thousands of times, everything is happening just as it will, there are no accidents, there is a purpose to everything. It’s easy to see that when we get hung up on some aspect of our life and start clinging to it that it can be the sign for the universe to step in with your next lesson. Life is about the journey and the climb out of ignorance. A walk we must take if we wish to grow away from the short sided vision we have of life.

You could say in the big picture every difficult thing that happens, every upheaval is meant to better align you with truth. It is meant to open your eyes to the reality of life. We are not here on Planet Earth for the long haul. This is a way station, a school for learning what you need to get where you desired to go as you move through your spiritual rise to greater consciousness. Every upset or set back must be used as a set up for what could be a climb on your ladder of consciousness. Far better to learn and rise than be pushed around by life unsure what you are doing or where you are going.

Either you are in charge of your world paying attention to the signs freely given to us or you are walking in the dark. When we fall prey to hardships and get negative about our circumstances we will find they are happy to oblige us with repeat performances until we get so tired of it we look for the door to change. This is when your spiritual practice becomes the answer. Never get bitter, look for what in your thinking has you trapped because truth is, if it weren’t for being forced to change most people wouldn’t change a thing and there is no growth without change. Look for the blessing in every minute because there is one.

What was once bitter can become sweet!
