Escape from Pain and Suffering

I know better than to try and escape pain and suffering by running to thought for solutions. The best that can come of it is temporary relief through the denial of what is…which is a set up for more extreme suffering in the future.

Thinking is what moves me to deny my position as pure awareness in the first place. And as soon as I stop looking for solutions in thought, I’m naturally moved to observe insane thought patterns as the root cause of whatever form of misery has arisen in me.

As for rational solutions, they arise spontaneously, as I am gracefully moved to express the love and compassion that prevails in the mind of God….who dwells within Me.

Happy all the Time

I’m not happy all the time. It’s just that I’m quicker than most people at allowing myself to be delivered back into the Light.

It’s not that I’m a positive thinker. Through meditation I’ve become experientially aware of the truth and so I naturally forgive myself and all others (which are really versions of myself) for every blunder that I perceive.

For I know that when the mirror gets cloudy, we can only reflect to each other fearful thought patterns that circulate in the mind. Without grievances being held in my emotional body, there is no impediment to my happiness, and so happiness is natural for me.

All are innocent…and everything that happens is a gift of grace…a chance to clean the mirror. This awareness sets me free. 

Allowing Peace

My heart goes out to all of those who instead of loving their neighbors as themselves, cannot help but judge their neighbors in an attempt to avoid feeling the judgment they have made for themselves.

This can only multiply the force of evil spirits in the mind, and thus plant the seeds of more and more suffering.

It’s so simple to allow Peace in the moment judgment raises it’s sinful voice. But most humans have not yet learned how to make that shift of perspective.

This is only because most humans are still operating under the belief that their own concepts are God’s voice, while denying the messages coming through the body that God created as a home for those concepts.

I can help with this. I am designing a weeklong retreat to share with people how to hear and live according to God’s guidance, and to follow His voice to ultimate freedom.

The retreat is scheduled for October 2nd – 9th at Kalani Honua Retreat Center here on Big Island.

Prices start at only $1,395, and this includes 3 great meals daily, lodging and all retreat activities.

Mistakes

I never make mistakes, and neither does anyone else. Everything we do effectively teaches the child mind the consequences of its own habits of thought.

Let there be only love and compassion for all beings. Amen!

Fear is Dangerous

I don’t mind death. Every body that is born will also pass away.

But I will not tolerate being hypnotized by fear because every time I succumb to such hypnosis, misery is multiplied for myself and for my people.

What do I mean by not tolerating fear? It means that when fear arises, I turn as much of my attention as possible to my physical structure so that I can experience what’s being sensed by the unconscious mind.

In this way, my energy of attention cannot be used to defile myself and my world by propagating fear… and the root of fear naturally gets burned up through my conscious awareness of its sensation.

In addition, I remain open to whatever is coming because I’m aware that I can respond instead of habitually react even when faced with fearful circumstances. As such, I don’t pray for protection or for good things to be given to me…as to me that’s just fear of being available for whatever experience arises.

For example, when a recent hurricane came to the place where I live, I was aware that my body could pass away, especially when I heard trees cracking and falling and received news that a nearby power plant was “uncontrollably releasing toxic hydrogen sulfide”.

Immediately upon hearing the news, I directed my attention to my physical sensations and breathing while witnessing fear, and my mind came to accept physical death as a possibility. Every time fear arose in me, I approached it in the same way.

I was able to respond to my children’s concerns and to the concerns of friends who were worried about our safety without going into a pattern of fear with them. I considered evacuating, but it was obvious without leaving our home that we wouldn’t make it out because of fallen trees.

I noticed that the winds were blowing strongly in the direction of the power plant, and I trusted that our bodies would be kept safe by the wind if that was meant to be. Moreover, I also trusted that our bodies would fall ill or even die if that was meant to be.

Instead of being scared of death, my child mind was able to enjoy the events as they unfolded…because no matter what happened I was there and it was clear that not even physical death could disturb the peaceful presence that I am.

(Incidentally, nobody in my home had any symptoms of poisoning, our home and gardens are in great shape, and all of us are enjoying vibrant health to date.)

Aloha!!
