The Ego is LOUD for a reason it doesn’t want you to discover
November 23, 2013

To the ego, the ego is King. And its demands and complaints are endless. But did you ever notice that they are also LOUD? I am talking about the voice in the head that is constantly and vociferously dictating your seemingly every move, moment-to-moment.

Its constant vocal chattering is no accident. Why? Because if it allows you to become deeply still, you just might hear another voice inside you. A “quiet voice.” This gentle quiet voice is quite different than the brash egoic one. For what it lacks in volume it makes up for in truly the highest way possible: it is your Truth, your intuition, your authentic Self.

As the saying goes, “Thunder makes all the noise, but it’s lightning that gets the job done.” And notice this: Lightning is always silent.

If I am lost in mind, than I am not home with God

The shift for the sincere heart that desires God is from the conceptual self and its endless concepts (limited, dead), to the living Spirit within (unlimited, alive). Its always been there, but as long as the material world has our attention, it remains invisible.

Go within and be silent. Sooner or later something will stir that is not of thought… a silent power… its inherent, causeless peace is unmistakable to the open heart.

Nothing Ever Happened
November 9, 2013

Have you ever noticed that when your computer monitor is turned on (conscious!), you never actually see the monitor itself, but rather ever changing points of colored light in millions of different shades and hues which create an image of EVERYTHING you appear to see, including: huge mountains that appear to stretch for miles, sandy beaches, grey sky, white birds, blue ocean, people (of all colors, ages and sizes), green grass, pouring rain, fast cars, powerful trains, delicate flowers, big trees, green frogs, etc.

But none of these images is actually there, or could be said to exist, beyond the image of it on the screen. In other words, the image you are looking at has no weight to it, even if you are looking at a mountain. The image has no distance to it, even if you are looking at outer-space. The image has no texture to it, even if you are looking at sandpaper.

The illusion looks so real that we forget it’s the play of light on a monitor. However, when you unplug the monitor and look at the dead screen, there is nothing there. Where did all those appearances, movies, stories, facebook posts, you tube videos and thousands of emails go?? Looking at the screen when the computer is off, can you find any evidence that anything ever happened? No.

What if this also applied to the so called world “out there,” the world of phenomenal appearance? That all appearances are just that, appearances. Nothing more. Thus, the highest spiritual understanding: nothing ever happened.
