There’s no such thing as ‘luck’, its all about vibration…

We really do not live in a universe of ‘luck’, ‘chance’ or ‘coincidence’…

Although we cannot ultimately define life with words and concepts, we more accurately live in a universe of energy-vibration-attraction.

We are energy by nature. And it is the vibrations (thoughts and subsequent feelings) that we consistently focus upon, that attracts and draws to us the people, situations, circumstances and experiences that flow into our life…

So it is the flow of our thoughts and the way we think and feel that determines the way everything manifests into our reality.

Please remember; you don’t need to ‘‘control’’ your thoughts. All you have to do is keep reaching for and finding the thoughts that make you feel good inside and let go of all that do not.

Keep reaching for thoughts of the things you love, thoughts of joy, thoughts of appreciation, thoughts of gratitude, thoughts of peace, thoughts of letting things be, thoughts of knowing that everything will be okay, thoughts of anything that soothes you and makes you feel good inside…

As you start to direct the momentum of your thoughts to things that make you feel good, as opposed to thinking and dwelling on things that make you feel rubbish, you are creating a massive shift in your vibration and point of attraction.

It’s like; if your thoughts are on the vibration of anger and frustration, then in this moment, you are attracting to yourself more things to make you angry and frustrated. However, if you can start to direct your thoughts to things that make you feel good inside, then you have created a shift in your vibration from ‘‘anger’’ to ‘‘appreciation’’. This will create a massive shift in what you are attracting and drawing to yourself.

Remember! YOU and only YOU are the creator of YOU

Life is an exploration of self discovery…

‘‘Life is an internal journey not an external journey; the external journey is merely a reflection of our internal journey.’’ – The Truth about Life and Who You Really Are

There really is no destination. There is no end.

Remember; life is an ongoing journey of exploration of self discovery, an ongoing journey of self discovery and self realisation.

 

So can you accept that life is an ongoing journey?

Can you accept that you can’t ‘figure everything out’ right this second?

And most importantly, can you accept that no matter how much you resist it, the present moment already is as it is?

 

Just relax and be easy on yourself…

Accept this moment without any judgement or opinion…

This is a quick blog post to let you know that my new ‘‘SkypeMe’’ service is now available!

ALL suffering is caused by resistance to the present moment…

This is an incredibly powerful and profound statement.

ALL suffering is caused by resistance to the present moment, by resisting the way life is right now in this moment.

At the start of my inward journey what seems now like life times ago I could ‘‘hear’’ this statement, but I couldn’t ‘‘feel’’ it.

It felt intriguingly right and the truth of it was resonating within me, but I couldn’t ‘‘feel’’ it, I couldn’t ‘‘sense’’ it, I couldn’t ‘‘feel it’’ and ‘‘know it’’ in my daily life.

I decided to share this with you right now because I can feel it ringing through every cell of my body like an enormous powerful pulsating truth, and so it seemed like the most logical step for my next blog post.

So I would very much like to invite you in, to just relax for a moment, to relax into this statement, don’t seek to grasp it, just feel it right now…

 

ALL suffering is caused by resistance to the present moment.

ALL suffering is caused by resistance to the present moment.

 

So can you relax into the present moment right now?

No matter what is happening to you, can you accept this moment as it is without any resistance?

Can you simply be?

Becoming enlightenment, entering the kingdom of heaven…

The ego, your personality, your sense of self surrenders…

You become totally at one with the present moment…

You start to feel as though you are at one with the breath…

You become the breath…

You can feel the sensation of the breath flowing in and out with every cell of your mouth and every cell of your body…

An indescribable joy arises from within, a deep peace, a sheer unconditional love…

Your sense of self detaches from thought, thought seizes and slows down, you become pure awareness…

You feel as though you have expanded out of your body…

You can feel and sense the aliveness of the space around you…

You become the space around you…

You feel full of pure lightness, an indescribable deep peace fills you up from within…

There is no effort, no trying, no YOU…

You feel at total oneness with everything in existence…

You look around and feel sheer joy to be here experiencing right now in this moment…

You look at another person and feel an indescribable and very deep unconditional love. You become them. You can powerfully sense that place in them in which we are all one and the same…

You feel so connected, so at home inside yourself and the world…

There are no questions, no mysteries, just a powerful sense of knowing…

Sounds no longer feel outside of you. They feel in you. You can feel the sensation of them vibrating through your brain…

There is no separation, no duality, no ‘me’ and ‘the world’…

You are the universe and the universe is you…

There is just a powerful indescribable unconditional love that is far beyond anything I can begin to describe with these words…

You know longer try to seek answers through more and more thought…

You feel, you sense, you realise, you know that place in which we are all one and interconnected…

You have gone beyond trying to understand enlightenment with thought- you become it, right now in this moment…

You can feel it with every cell of your body…

You feel so alive, so present…

You feel such joy, such pure love…

You feel totally at peace, totally at home in yourself…

You let go of all boundaries…

Your sense of self as a separate entity has completely surrendered…

There is no effort, no trying…

Just a powerful realisation of who you really are…

You have become enlightenment- you have entered the kingdom of heaven…

 

This state of mind, or state of being is what we are all searching and craving for. In reality it is our natural state of mind, our natural state of being, but unfortunately people have gotten lost in a false sense of self thinking that they are something that they are not. They think they are ‘human body’, when in reality the human body is merely an expression of who we really are.

A few people get blasted into this state, usually when they have reached such despair, the absolute bottom depths of depression that all of a sudden the intelligence of who they really are kicks in and forces them into a state of complete surrender. This is rare; few people get blasted straight into a state of enlightenment.

Most others have to work at it. They have to want to change. They have to feel that there is another way of living. They have to want to create no more suffering and pain for themselves. Some then take and get lost in a form of religion or some spiritual practice. Their ego, their sense of self gets absorbed into it and seeks salvation through it. Eventually their practice no longer works for them and they seek salvation through some other means.

So, how do you work towards enlightenment? How do you start to allow your mind to transcend towards the kingdom of heaven?

Well, it’s simple- meditate every day and keep returning your mind to the present moment throughout your day.

Make it your way of life to meditate for at least 15 minutes twice a day, morning and evening. Then start to keep having little meditations throughout your day, a few minutes as many times a day as possible to stop and dive within. Keep returning to the present moment. Keep going beyond thought, beyond ‘thinking’, and hold your awareness.

Keep practicing acceptance and surrender to everything that arises into your daily life. Keep letting go. Keep letting go of your opinions. Keep letting go of the need to judge yourself and others. Keep letting go of the need to evaluate and analyse every aspect of life. Keep letting go of the need to make right or wrong. And keep practicing accepting and surrendering to everything that arises in the present moment.

Gradually this will merge into your natural state of mind, your natural state of being. Your mind will gradually start to transcend to higher and higher states of awareness. Now and again you may get glimpses of enlightenment, glimpses of the kingdom of heaven. For a few moments the egoic ‘‘you’’ may totally surrender, and you enter into the present moment, you become totally at one with the moment, totally here and now. Enjoy these moments; they will continue to get deeper and deeper way beyond your expectation. DO NOT get mad at yourself for slipping back out of them. This is an essential part of the process of transformation to a state of self-realisation. Do not be hard on yourself, only the false self is hard on itself and it is this that you are trying to transcend. Just keep practicing acceptance and surrender to everything that arises in the present moment.

This state of mind, this state of being, is what Jesus was pointing too, as well as Buddha, and many other great sages throughout time who found alignment with who we really are. They did not intent for their teachings to become rigid belief systems, or ‘‘religions’’ for people to worship and follow. They were trying to point people within so that they too could access the kingdom of heaven by finding alignment with who we really are.

The kingdom of heaven is not a place outside of you or even a place to be reached at some point in the future. The same is true with enlightenment. Enlightenment is not separate from who you are.

Remember; the kingdom of heaven, or enlightenment, is your natural state of being when you are in harmony with who we really are. Therefore you can only find enlightenment right now in this moment. The kingdom of heaven can only be accessed right now in this moment. They cannot be found in the future, they can only be found NOW.

So relax and dive within. You already are everything you are searching for.

Just let go…

Surrender completely to the present moment right now as it is, and keep doing it…

Resist nothing.

You have to…

 

You have to focus only on the things that make you feel good inside and not dwell on anything that does not…

You have to keep trying to find the good in every person, situation and circumstance that arises into your life…

You have to go into everything with the intention of enjoying it as much as possible (even if you don’t particularly want to at first, you will be surprised)…

You have to enjoy this moment as it is without any mental judgement, evaluation and opinion…

You have to keep trying to find thoughts that bring you inner relief and inner freedom…

You have to let go, accept and surrender completely to the flow of life…

 

If you can do this, if you can completely surrender to the flow of life and find the good in everything that happens to you, then you will create a massive shift in your state of being and your state of mind. Not only that, but it will also have very positive effects on your overall health and it will drastically improve the way you feel…

Remember, if you don’t change the way you live your life, if you keep thinking the same old thoughts and telling yourself the same old stories, then nothing will ever change…

Be easy on yourself…

Be easy on yourself…

You don’t need to ‘figure out’ your entire life right now…

You don’t need to ‘sort’ everything out and make decisions on how things are going to be…

 

You just have to relax into this moment…

You just have to let go internally…

 

Let go of the need to evaluate and analyse your life…

Let go of the need to judge yourself, life and others…

 

Just accept and surrender to this moment as it is…

No matter how much you resist it, this moment already is…

 

Then, as you continue to practice surrender in your daily life it will start to merge into your natural state of being, your natural state of mind, and then, you will find as Jesus beautifully described ‘‘the peace that passes all understanding’’.

 

You don’t need to figure anything out…

Just relax…

Just be here now…
