“Once your mind’s out of the way you are free to play ” – I never believed in anything outside of what is here on earth as I was growing up but as i’ve developed, my perception of God has changed.
These days in my belief system, God exists in all of us. Whether you want to call it consciousness, the soul or the higher self. The phrase “we are all one” was not an accident, we really are made of the same stuff that the universe is and are ultimately, all connected.
Consciousness is all around us and anyone can tap into this god consciousness by learning how to control their mind and thoughts. This starts with self realisation, looking within, becoming aware of those parts of the self which act unconsciously or in “auto-pilot” These are the areas of your life that are being controlled through not being attentive to the now.
Eckhart Tolle and many other famous spiritual teachers talk about living in the now and with personal practice I am a great believer. Through meditation and mindfulness, I have truly learned to live my life in this moment. After all, the past is just a memory and the future hasn’t even happened yet.
“Worrying is like carrying an umbrella waiting for it to rain”
Meditation can really help to ease an anxious mind by bringing us into the present moment and controlling which thoughts we allow to come in, as well as how we react to situations that are outside of our control, becoming more enlightened if you like. Through meditation and mindfulness we can realise the truth, that we are the presence within, observing the activities of the mind, not the constant stream of thoughts the mind seems to bombard us with!
Looking within can only lead us to see that we are not our body, our thoughts, our memories, emotions, culture, nationality or job title, but in fact a sum product of group mind phenomena and social division, which is actually, all artificial. Watch this short video for a deeper understanding:
I believe earth to be a learning planet that we come to learn all we need to, before moving onto the next level, if you like. If we don’t learn what we need to learn then we will have to come back into the matrix system on Earth as a baby with full amnesia that we have ever even been here before (reincarnation) As you know, energy cannot die, it can only transform, and as you (and everything) are made of energy that means you too. (Think about water becoming ice then becoming steam)
As you make your way through life certain things will come up for you to trigger healing that has been passed down through generations, and will continue to do so unless you break the cycle. Ultimately the meaning of life, is to be happy and healed and healthy.
