The Logic of Conspiracy

By |February 10th, 2015|Mind|

It’s hard for me to imagine that “conspiracies”, especially on a global scale DO NOT exist. All it takes is a simple chain of logic to understand how “conspiracies” are not only possible, but also more common than you think. Let’s start with people. In order for a conspiracy to exist it usually involves more [...]

Defining “The World”

By |February 7th, 2015|Mind, Presence|

There is no such thing as ‘the world’ only a collection of ‘perception bubbles’ that attempt to understand it. Although the environment appears to exist independent of perceptions and beliefs, the perceptions and beliefs of billions eventually become expressed as part of ‘the world’ we observe. In an attempt to simplify the complex, the brain [...]

Breaking Free and Being the Observer

By |August 3rd, 2014|Mind, Personal Development, Perspective, Purpose, Spiritual Growth|

Millions of years ago cells banded together into groups, these groups eventually formed colonies with special functions known as "organs". These organs form part of bigger specialized systems (breathing, respiration, circulation, reproduction, emotions, hormones, thought). The sum total of the entire system is a energy known as "Ego". The Ego lives primarily for the survival [...]

Your ________ Determines What You Attempt

By |May 26th, 2014|Confidence, Mind, Perspective|

It is your BELIEF about whether you can or can't that determines if you will even try. Believing in yourself is the first step to action. Then actions lead to results And results cause you to form new beliefs about what you're capable of. With greater confidence or self esteem, you attempt bigger things. Yes you might fail at your attempts often, but as long as you are getting more skilled and more resourceful- with each attempt, the chances of future success also grows. Don't let failure or rejection shape your identity negatively, use all experiences as fuel for the next stage. And seek a path or cause that is greater than you. When you are attempting things that promise to reward only yourself, the burden is heavy and the road long. But when you attempt things that promise reward to a great number, your burden becomes lighter as others join you and the road might still be long, but it will be filled with good company.
