What is your Mission in Life? Where the soul leads………..
Recent travel here in Mexico has brought me into contact with people who clearly are living their “Mission.” Living one’s mission is not something that is taught to us in school. We are taught the essentials to survive economically but rarely if ever is the soul or spirit included in any information we are given. I realised last evening that Mexico is my 32nd country I have travelled in during the past couple of decades. These decades have been my greatest education and taught me far more than any formal education I have received. The travel, together with my life experience has brought me to understand what my mission is here and how I conduct that mission.
It was the words from a massage therapist in Campeche following receiving the best massage I have ever received in my life that inspired this article. As I thanked her for the session I’d just had and expressed in Pigeon Spanish how it was the best massage I’d ever received she said
“It is my mission.” She also runs a vegetarian café and sells crystals. Through a translator I shared with her my experience of using Moldavite, a crystal that is said to contain unique properties and originates from another planetary system and a huge piece fell to earth many thousands of years ago. Whether this is true or not who can say? What I can share with you at the risk of digressing away from the subject of this article, is the experience I had the first time I used it. (more…)
We are all familiar with the term “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” An expression arising from a tale told of a young boy who in his innocence declared aloud during a parade by the ruling King of the Realm, where everyone had to bow down to the King’s will.
“The Emperor Wears No Clothes!” as all around him bowed low and refused to see the obvious, much less name it.
The ruled had been indoctrinated into believing the King was dressed in full regalia and no-one dared to challenge his nakedness except this young innocent.
When anything unseen and hidden is causing problems either within a society at large or as is often the case within the immediate family, first you have to name it. Until something is named there is no possibility of resolving it. Whilst people around the “hidden issue or situation” pretend there is nothing wrong, the hidden gets power. (more…)
I’ve recently been given a book by a friend to read called The Silence of the Heart by Paul Ferrini. I’m about three quarters of the way through it and decided to “Google” him and located his website and once again I saw “Spiritual Healing for Sale” despite his wise and comforting “channelled” writings he is no different than the numerous other gurus/teachers who are cooly raking in millions of dollars selling their particular brand of spirituality. Spiritual Retreats offering peace, tranquility and four or five star accommodation and the “presence” of the Master is the new cool thing to do or place to be.
I come from an old school of thought that “genuine spiritual teachings are free.” I have been blessed/guided to those who would give freely of their time and energy teaching me what they knew from the relatively unknown to the now famous and celebrated Eckhart Tolle and David Icke. I took what felt right and left the rest and then added my own experiences to the pool of my knowledge. (more…)
I wrote an e-mail to a friend on the subject of mental health/illness
It’s better to light one candle than curse the darkness
and spiritual awakenings and I want to share part of that e-mail with you co-bloggers.
Anyway what I have been pondering on is the whole skewed issue on Mental Health/Illness. In short I believe that the societies we have and are continuing to create is driving people mad. Most of the “awakening encounters” I have come across is usually the result of extreme stress caused by a crisis arising in a materialistic society whereby the real sense and feeling of soulfulness is completely disregarded. For example when you visit or speak to an advisor of Centre Link is their approach to get you to fit in with their criteria for being a “productive money earning member of society” or is their approach holistic and they are mindful of your experience and want you to feel fulfilled in your chosen career/work?
Perhaps that is the whole purpose of being here so that we recognise and see through the inhumanness, soulless and insensitive materialistic society we are creating and so we awaken and think we can change it. But the sad reality is, I am reaching the conclusion we will never change it, because it is not meant to change. If the Divine Design is to teach us about Love/Divinity/God (in the non-religious non-dual sense including Buddhism) then how can we with soulful integrity “earn a living” in a sick society? (more…)
My books arrived from the US a few days ago via the excellent service of Create Space‘s POD service. No I’m not giving them a plug and I get no discount. A Multidimensional Paradigm and A New Human have been available as digital formats through Amazon’s Kindle, but due to my lack of skills I have omitted to get them onto Smashwords etc. I tried but after a frustrating few days I gave up.
I suspect our aptitude for reading and digesting is being compromised by the fast evolving world of digital technology. I have lost count of the number of times I have copied or ordered something onto my computer “to be read later ” only to find later is still waiting for me!
There is a process in reading a physical book, a full body engagement is implemented. The very action of physically touching, opening and actually sitting down for an hour or more to read a book causes a depth of focus and intent that I believe does not exist with digital versions. I may be speaking from a traditional aspect as reading for me was always physical and I appreciate the younger generation now learns from computers almost as soon as they learn to walk. We have yet to see the result of this and I’m unsure how useful this learning style is. (more…)
We have just entered a period of excessive political hype as leaders of all political parties in the UK launch their Manifestos for the upcoming elections in May 2015.
Anyone who has lived long enough, researched and had a lot of experience of life on planet Earth must greet this with a large degree of skepticism. Given that we have not collectively forgotten the denial of the “will of the people” who demonstrated in their millions world wide against invading Iraq in 2003, the suspicious deaths of Princess Diane and Dr David Kelly; the fact that our country is not self governed due to it being into trillions of debt and therefore “owned” by the creditors, add to this the almost complete disconnect of our leaders from the working populations, then it is surprising that anyone turns out to vote at all.

Discovering the conscious “i” out of the body.
Robert Monroe was the pioneer of providing information on the Out of Body Experience. It is his books that provided me with the knowledge and confidence to know that I was not losing my mind whilst experiencing similar phenomena.
As with many “synchronicities” his information appeared to me at the right time. I had just made an appointment with a psychiatrist due to the extreme experiences I was having on an almost nightly basis when I located one of his books “Journeys Out of the Body.” (more…)
