Daily Steps

Most people I know who are on the path to awareness have been jolted by life in one way or another that it made them come aware. Now if you haven’t been shocked or jolted in to awareness, and life is ok for you there is another way or path.

Listening…

But not just blindly listening, but as Buddha said to challenge what you are hearing but with an open mind and even if you don’t agree with me the truth can still be sighted. Truth can not be found in words, theories, ideas, or concepts.

Truth is brought to your awareness through a open mindset or attitude to discover something new, and you could be questioning ever thing I’m saying and still see the truth.

I could never really tell you what the “Truth” is, no one can and any one who says they can is lying to you. I can though show you the obstacles to the truth. That I can describe to you. All I can do is describe you cognitive errors, your fallacies that have blinded you to sight the truth.  Once you drop them you will have a better chance at seeing Truth.

I can challenge your beliefs and belief systems, point out your errors, and help you unlearn. True learning is through removing the falsehoods, and seeing with your own mind and heart.

You must have the willingness to unlearn almost all you been taught. And then you can really listen, but most people are listening confirm what you already think? A confirmation bias which might just be some previous programming in your subconscious? I ask myself on a daily basis, am I listing to confirm what I believe, or to discover something new?

This is critical as you may miss what is right there. And also I have to watch for cognitive dissonance from causing me to ignore the truths as well. That is important if you wish to have real awareness as I have described it.

As you read or Listen to me as I tell my story observe your reactions, you may feel shock, anger, sadness, startled, irritated, annoyed, or frustrated. Try and see what is triggering these reactions.  We don’t want to hear new things. If it involves change, or you have to admit you were wrong. That your “guru” you followed was not right or lied to you.

When your ready to listen, ready to follow, you admit you don’t know, and your wide open with questions, and insight. Then testing, cutting, poking, prodding, challenging with an open mind, then you listening, then are ready. Then you can take another major step your path to awaking.

The first step I said in my previous blogs, was to admit to yourself that you don’t want to wake up, you don’t want to be happy, and you have all kind of resistances with you that are both conscious and subconscious.

The second step it to have a readiness challenge all your beliefs, but to also have a wide open mind as I have defined it.  To evaluate them all and put them under the hash light of awareness. This most people won’t do or don’t know how to do. It is too painful and requires real work to do so. It can be fun and you might learn to laugh at yourself in the process as we continue on our journey on the path to awareness…

Wishing you a beautiful weekend, and can’t wait to hear your comments.

In Gratitude, I wish you awareness of Peace, Love, Great Health, and Abundance there in you, Always,

Hi, I’m grateful you are here, the 8th Step could be called “showing up”. It is simple but many fail to do it.  and on that note.

Daily Steps

Often in my life I have many things I desire to do but often don’t show up to do them. What ever the reason it matters not. I do show up for the important things in life, family, work, friends, etc…

I discovered for myself that I need to also show up for myself. To build that awarenesses that I need to take care of me first, and then I better able to take care of those I love better.

Yes, we all need to do the things we need to do, but I had to question what those things “I needed to do” where really things I needed to do. Was it just peer pressure, parents, friends, siblings, dogmatic social ideas, programming from school/work/government, Multi Media, Social Media, Advertisement, Entertainment and Church? Yes, a lot of it was, and I began to look inward to put my light of awareness on it.

In order to undo the programming (brain washing) I had, I had to first has to be aware of it, understand it, because I can’t suppress it, I can only accept it and then create my own programming. Which eventually had switched out the old programming with my programming.

I wish you to take a few minutes and look into yourself, see who is in here, what they are thinking and what scripts you been playing over and over again. Want change in your life? It starts with your awareness of who’s been aloud to influence your subconscious mind.

Like I have said before, not easy to look at, can be painful, and cognitive dissonance may prevent you from acknowledging it or even if you see it, doing something about it. The road to brain washing is paved with apathy!

Wishing you a beautiful weekend,  and can’t wait to hear your comments.

Hey everyone, thanks for sticking around. The last 8 months I have been through many of my own personal challenges that I chose to take on. It has been fascinating for me to really have a unique awareness of my progression through this time. I’ve gone through some things that I thought I wouldn’t make it through and I encountered many challenging people who crossed my path.

I will get back to that in a bit. Right now I wish to say how grateful you have taken the time to read this and that the Universe (or what ever you want to call it) loves you and I do to. What ever shit you are going through is just stuff you are going through.

Take a big sip of that cup of fuck it all and let it all go. Sit back in your boat, pull your ores in and let the current in the river take you. Relax, everything is fucked up and everything is going to be wonderful. Isn’t that a fascinating paradox?

It is all how I look at it in the end… Well, we are all going to move on from this body, Earth, Universe at some point and live ever after. What is funny is how easy I forget that how the choice is mine… Happy is my natural state and I easily go there, but I have to choose to. I focus on what I want, and when things happen I don’t expect or are not what I would like, and I find my emotions and thoughts are not in a happy place. Then that is dam good indicator for me I need to shift my energy/frequency/emotions/thoughts. Being less happy is just a way of my higher self letting me know I need to shift my awareness a bit and let go… I focus on what I’m grateful for and when I shift my attention to a better frequency of mind and I change my awareness to that. My emotion changes and I feel better, and have a good laugh at myself 🙂

I found in the last 8 months that I have no idea all the reasons why I choose to such a challenging path, but I’m certain I chose it to become aware of some aspects of my personality that I just would not of seen otherwise. It was fascinating to catch those glimpses of panic and fear. Joy and excitement of emotional roller coaster as they passed through around and in me. As I grow through these steps of awareness I move further down the river and with the flow of the stream.

  • In the last 12 months I had several challenging event, people, and things not limited to but including,

  • Being in no fault of my own in a “t-bone” motor vehicle accident with a pick-up truck.

  • having to help my mother transition out of her home of many years, and into a “Senior’s Village”

  • Pack up and sort all her belongings and downsize to fit into a 2bdrm condo.

  • Clean and get the house ready for sale.

  • Move all my own into storage as I moved in with her through the transition.

  • Move my self and belongings 3 times in a 3 month period.

  • Look after my son and work a full time job.

  • Empty the house, have it cleaned, and sell or move all contents (accumulated over 8 years) within a 3 week period after it sold.

  • Find a new place to live in the same town my Mother was moving to that had a 1% housing availability rate.

  • And all the everyday things one has to do.

After the last year’s challenges, I think I’m prepared to take on anything, and I know the Universe has got my back!

I often get up and the morning and look in the mirror and say “I love you so much, you are wonderful, amazing and if needed you can work around any challenges that come in the moment”

We are all at different points in our life’s river floating along, some people are rowing upstream because they been taught that is the way only way to success, others are paddling about in circles, and some are going with the flow and sitting back in there boat with the ores in and enjoying it immensely . Some are paddling downstream and loving it!

Where are you? What are you doing… What do you want to do… Are you even aware that you are??? Row, Row, Row your Boat Gently …..

I’m in Gratitude to all, I wish you awareness your Peace, Love, Great Health, Wealth, and Abundance there in you, Always,
