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 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...
Let us never be afraid of innocent joy; God is good and what he does is well...– Amiel. (via overcoming-imperfections)
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’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,...

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...
