7 Steps for Overcoming Ego's Hold on You
Here are seven suggestions to help you transcend ingrained ideas of self-importance. All of these are designed to help prevent you from falsely identifying with the self-important ego. 1. Stop being offended. The behavior of others isn’t a reason to be immobilized. That which offends you only weakens you. If you’re looking for occasions to be offended, you’ll find them at every turn. This is...

Tell the Truth?
As humans we are trained to lie. Lying is a major part of survival. To be willing to tell the truth is to risk losing everything. When you have made a choice to be committed to the truth, then the truth is a ruthless master. That commitment will expose every aspect of hiding and every justification of that hiding. In the commitment to the discovery of the complete truth, there has to be a...

Acceptance of Our Angry Self.
Something happens that seems unjust, or cruel, or unreasonable, and whatever it is has impacted us or someone we care about. The thing makes us mad, no question about it. The question is, what do we do with that feeling? Is it possible to accept it in without causing damage? It’s possible. Actually, it’s more than possible: it’s smart. Just like all the other visitors that stop...
The Power of Gratitude
In today’s fast moving world, qualities such as gratitude seem to belong to another age – a simpler time when life moved along at an easier pace and there was time to appreciate everything. Yet within this apparently meek sounding quality there lies a tremendous source of power that can radically reshape the way you look at the world. What gratitude can do for us: Puts things in...

The 12 Pathways; To Higher Consciousness
Freeing Myself 1. I am freeing myself from security, sensation, and power addictions that make me try to forcefully control situations in my life, and thus destroy my serenity and keep me from loving myself and others. 2. I am discovering how my consciousness-dominating addictions create my illusory version of the changing world of people and situations around me. 3. I welcome the opportunity...
The Seven Centers of Consciousness.
The Security Center This Center makes you preoccupied with food, shelter, or whatever you equate with your personal security. This programming forces your consciousness to be dominated by your continuous battle to get “enough” from the world in order to feel secure. The Sensation Center This Center is concerned with finding happiness in life by providing yourself with more and...

Namaste and God bless you, Tumblr fam! I hope you’re enjoying a beautiful weekend thus far. Keep free and relaxed. If you can’t find yourself in a peaceful, serene environment, just detach yourself from any negativity and get away. A walk always helps, maybe a job with some music or a trip to the park. Whatever you feel helps maintain the peace within you. Much love, Christian. (I...
Spiritual Awakening; Simplified.
I often get asked, “How do I become spiritually awakened?” or “How can I achieve spiritual awakening?” The most common misconception about awakening is that you have to do something in order for it to occur. I’m here to tell you that your ego’s perception is fooling with you yet again. Spiritual Awakening happens every single day. It can occur out in the open,...
What exactly happens when you meditate? Your brain functions on a small amount of electricity, much like a computer. This electrical current vibrates and pulses at various speeds. When you are wide awake, with your eyes focused, your brain vibrates 20 times per second – what scientists call 20 cycles per second or the Beta frequency. You are probably at this beta level of mind right now as...

mikefrawley replied to your post: The 4 Agreements. That’s one of my two or three all time favorite books. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read it. Thanks for sharing it. Anytime, my friend. Thank you for appreciating the post!
The 4 Agreements.
1. Be Impeccable with Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean.Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. 2. Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the...

10 Ways to Shift Your Consciousness.
In moments of stress, anxiety, and other intense negative mind states that we experience within our lives, it can be difficult to have our focus on positive personal development. The thought of becoming an enlightened sage radiating seemingly-perpetual positive energy can seem far off…an unattainable goal given life’s everyday problems. True as it may seem to be, this is a mental mechanism that...

10 Little Lessons to Help You Through.
I’m back again with a little list of lessons/thoughts I’ve compiled to perhaps help you get through life a bit easier. 1. Not everyone is going to like you. The minute you come to terms with this, you have already freed yourself of a thought that burdens many in this crazy world of ours. We aren’t here to please others, we aren’t here to be friends with everyone or get...

Consciousness cannot be Known by The Mind.
Consciousness cannot be known by the mind. The mind is an object. It does not know anything. It is itself known by Consciousness. - Rupert Spira The reason why our very essence is emptiness is because we fill our own world. From thoughts to possessions, it is all filled in by us. Take a moment to really dwell on this because it might actually change your entire perception of what life is and...
karbarkalediscope: Trouble is like a washing machine, twist us and knock us around, but in the end we come out brighter and better than before.
God bless! And a beautiful day to all! I hope you’re all off to a productive Wednesday. Remember to keep yourself balanced. Don’t allow the thoughts or actions of others to affect anything that you do. Remain in a positive frame of mind and approach everything that you do with love. Namaste, Christian.

The Power of Your Perception.
In the age of 24 hour news and the internet it can seem hard to escape the barrage of negative events occurring around the world on a daily basis. This can often lead one to wonder and seriously question what is going on in the world? These events include wars, terrorism, famine, disease, political division, nuclear crisis, financial crisis, global pollution, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes,...

As we look out into the world around us, all we can really see is the agreements we have made about what reality is. We have agreements with ourselves and with others about what the world around us is.
