Life is not Hard or Simple: life is….


Woman-with-key

We have a tendency of saying that life is hard, simple, great, etc. However, if we look closely at what we imply we realize that we are referring to our experiences. When we perceive our experiences as good or great, we claim that life is good or great. When our perceived experiences are unpleasant we conclude that life is hard or unpleasant. However, if we refrain from defining and perceiving experiences and just witness them as they are, we realize that life is. It is a force within us that I also believe is the spark of God within us. Even when our bodies are ill, as long as we still have breath in our lungs with our hearts still beating, life is. And yes, in life there are experiences however life in its totality is not experience. One can be inwardly totally empty without experiencing anything yet still be alive. Therefore, it is my conclusion that life is not good, bad, tough or easy. It just is if we do not entangle it with our experiences. This also means that we can choose to accept all situations when they occur and refrain from defining them or dictating how they should have been. When a situation manifests, we can observe it as is. Even if we need to take action there’s no law in the universe that demands of us to feel sad, stressed, perturbed, or generate any other negative emotion in order to take action. We can take action from a place of pure witnessing with unwavering faith that what has to be done shall be done.

By understanding that life is a distinct force within us provided and supported by only its giver, God…Creator, we also understand that without life, there is no experience. Life happens first, and then experience follows. With that in mind we can be grateful for what’s truly important…life. We can be in awe of this gift called life regardless of our perceived experiences.

If you doubt this notion and have concluded that indeed your life is hard, take time to inwardly search for what this “hard life” looks like visually. If you do this exercise earnestly you will witness the mind leading you to a memory or memories of your experiences.

In the meantime, I hope that you can just be grateful for life, as a distinct force and gift from the Creator, God. 

Endless love

Celebrate Yourself – An Inspirational Holiday-season Message


 

Pardon my error, it is 12/24/2017 and not 12/24/2018, like I indicate in the video. I guess, I’m living fast forward. 🙂

In this audio recording, I share my take on what a holiday season and especially Christmas, could be redefined by each of us in order to create individualized experiences that do not only rekindle our spirits, but also contribute to humanity and the environment, rather than take from it continuously without considering the consequences.

In today’s world, public nudity is becoming more common than unusual. And when I refer to public nudity, I’m referring to people basically getting into a mental state that triggers them to undress down to nothing.

In this recording, I, and my host, Jay Black share our different psychological, cultural and societal perceptions of the impact of public nudity on society.

Here’s the link to the recording – https://youtu.be/v9I90jFnYUY

Do you Feel like you are Running Around in Circles?


There are times when we all feel so overwhelmed about life–when everything we do does not yield the results that we desire. During such times, we may feel as though the devil itself has binoculars on our lives.

I have experienced periods in my life when I felt as though I was moving against the wind. Everything seemed to break down. There was conflict surrounding me. Every action took me face to face with failure. I felt as though I was locked up behind a thick high wall with nowhere to go. I felt as if I was literally running around in circles–like a dog chasing its own tail. No amount of positive thinking made things better. Regardless of how hard and deeply I thought, no new information or ideas popped up in my mind as solutions. Even when I meditated and prayed for hours, I still felt a deep sense of emptiness and sadness.

Below are some of the steps that I have taken—things that have helped me get a new grip of my life.

1. Write down your goals.

2. Perform a situation analysis of your life; the steps you’ve been taking towards achieving your goals, the skills you have employed, plans, strategies, weaknesses, strengths, opportunities and threats.

2. Evaluate your successes and failures for the last 60 days.

3. STOP. Stop and relax. Stop making any major plans, taking any major actions or even expecting anything—good or bad to happen. Become a witness of your life. Observe. I know this might sound so hard to do, but if you have been taking a lot of action and seeing no results, then there is something missing. During such times, it also implies that we are not listening to our inner voice for direction or alerts.

4. Spend some time with yourself–at least 3 hours a day especially if you work for yourself. If you are employed and have to appear at a job every day, you can still become a witness of your own life by excluding judgement of others and the entire job situation. This might also mean that you don’t talk about your concerns with anyone. You are present at the job and doing what you have to do, but mindfully absent. I hope you understand what I mean. It’s about becoming laid back for a set period of time.

When we stop and do nothing major, we reduce the noises in our minds. This is when we get to hear the voice of God that is always existent at the back of our minds.

I hope this helps.

Love and light.
