The Ego and the Astronaut

By |May 7th, 2008|Ego, Mind|

Losing the Ego / personality does not mean that it's unimportant. It just means that a temporary loss is necessary for you to find it entirely. An Astronaut living inside a ship, looking out the windows all his life would never really know what his ship looked like until he 'lost' it - floated out [...]

Freud's Greatest Discovery – According to Maslow

By |April 26th, 2008|Mind, Personal Development|

3 Questions You Constantly Ask Yourself

By |April 6th, 2008|Mind, Personal Development|

The Ego is guided by 3 impulses that with the invention language can now be articulated in the form of questions. 1. How do I perceive myself? 2. How do others perceive me? 3.

You Control the Stones

By |March 25th, 2008|Mind, Presence|

Water’s natural tendency is to settle. Undisturbed by outside forces a body of water will sit motionless.

 By freeing awareness you can allow yourself to learn and experience anything of value. You can recreate yourself in any moment. Even if you invested 8 years to get a degree, you do not have to assume the identity of that degree. Even if you worked a job for 50 years – you do not [...]

Listening is Psychological Engagement

By |February 16th, 2008|Mind, Relationships|

There is a huge difference between merely hearing and listening.  The word "listening" is derived from two Anglo Saxon words, hlystan ("hearing") and hlosnian ("waiting in suspense"). The act of listening therefore means more than just something physical, it is psychological engagement with another person.

Intense Focus Requires a Defined Intention

By |November 15th, 2006|Mind, Personal Development, Success|

In a meditation I notice once I forget my intention, my focus is lost. Remain aware of your intention at all times- this is how you maintain focus.  If you have no intention, there is no way you can focus. In both life and meditation it is of fundamental importance you guide your self through [...]

There's Focus, and Then There's FOCUS

By |November 14th, 2006|Mind, Perspective, Success|

Imagine as if you could move a pen with your mind. Focus upon the pen with the intent of moving it across the table. Stop. Now start again, this time put the full force of your energy behind it. Invest every ounce of mental energy in moving the pen. Feel a surge of energy move [...]

Where Does Your Focus Go Upon Waking?

By |November 3rd, 2006|Mind|

  Knowing where your focus goes in the first few moments upon waking sets the tone for being either stressed or fulfilled early in the day. Recalling what you have to do causes a sudden rush of the physical world. If you're acutely aware of how your body feels just before you focus on the [...]
