Conscious Becoming

metamorphosis bk5 cvr resEngage in conscious becoming, in conscious living. Be consciously mastering the skill of realizing the true you – a being that is eternal, is love. Trust your inner guidance, your inner self and allow your higher mind, your everlasting Thee, to guide you.

You are becoming an eternal being
who knows, who realizes,
who is aware
whenever you are on Earth
or other planes.
You are becoming an eternal being
who is aware.

Become. Allow yourself
to touch your everlasting Thee.
Your Thee that is always with you
even if you only knew
that you are an earthly being
and that is all you knew. [Read more…]

Beauty That Is an Illusion

9780987752116_FRONT

We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality; we are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.” – Kalu Rinpoche

Consciousness has no boundaries. We are consciousness, yet we feel separate. Separate from each other, separate from our environment, separate from the Source. The base of our feeling separate lies in the illusion of our ego-centerness, our forgetting our origins.

This illusion is so perfect,
it is a perfect illusion.
It is a perfect, perfect solution
for this world of ours.
For this world of beauty
of rivers, mountains and streams,
for this beauty that we sleep through
in our dreams. [Read more…]

Reputation and Respect

Do Not Seek Reputation, Seek Respect.

In reputation, there is a polarity hidden. Those who seek reputation seek that which is the most acceptable to others. For some, reputation is largely about attaining the status in a society; they seek reputation at any price, which can eventually result in their, not the best, reputation.

In respect, there is no polarity. Respect has a positive interpretation. However, when respect is motivated by a fear, or feeling of duty, such motivation cannot be a true foundation of respect.

One earns respect because of one’s character, knowledge, qualities or abilities, by being considerate, kind and respectful. Respect can be afforded not only to a person, but to an inanimate object, to nature, to any that permeates through physical, mental, and spiritual levels, as well.

One conducts oneself as a respectful person due his ability to recognize the value of the mutual respect for each other. It is an ability of not judging but respecting others’ sacred space and time they have grown and lived in, their achievements, values, their excellence. Respect is about support, instead of tearing down the person. It reinforces self-esteem, good will, and honoring each other.

Start with respecting yourself, as if you do not respect yourself, you cannot truly respect others.

There is an abode, an abode of wisdom,
of calm, peace and respect for yourself,
an abode that is within.
There is a shrine that you need to discover,

… the above verse is from Illumination: Getting to Know the Invisible You, the 2nd book of the Purposeful Mind series, that is available for purchase at  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0067FEJAO .

“… Strike a balance of being in your centre of power but do not forget others. Be kind to others and they will be kind to you. Be respectful towards others and they will be respectful towards you.

But start with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be respectful to yourself. All will be returned to you tenfold. Give and you will be given. Ask and you shall receive the answer. Seek and it will be revealed. Such is the law…”

Wisdom

butterflies-95358 aToday, I came across a beautiful website and was taken by the wisdom of Native American Indian Traditional Code of Ethics*. I would like to share it with all of you. Below is my shortened adaptation of what I read, as those passages so resonated with me:

– Each morning upon rising, and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life within you and for all life; consider your thoughts and actions of the past day and seek for the courage and strength to be a better person.

– Show respect – showing respect is a basic law of life. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.

– Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother. Do no pollute our Mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.

– Be truthful at all times and under all conditions.

– The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honour of one is the honour of all.

– All the races in the world are like the different coloured flowers of one meadow. All are children of the Creator.

– Serve others. Happiness comes to those who dedicate their lives to the service of others.

– Observe moderation and balance in all things.

– Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your ruin.

– Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms; in prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise elders and friends.

One of the above pearls of wisdom stated: “Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother”.

Our Mother Earth is suffering from mismanagement by humans. Through respecting ourselves and living in balance and harmony, we come to respect all sentient and inanimate beings:

The Earth will not become extinct,
the Earth will not be shaken that badly.
The Earth will be creative and will recover and madly
will fall in love with the people again.

These people will not be of today’s nature.
These people will be a noble breed.
These people will understand nature.
These people will be descendants of today’s humanity.

These people will be of a fine mould,
a mould of godly thoughts and deeds.
These people are here already today—
some of them are ready, some are awakening.

The above is an excerpt from a poem in Evolution, the fourth book of my five books Purposeful Mind series. Visionary verses in Evolution offer you insights into possible future of our bodies, our planet, and more.

My First Blog – Purposeful Mind

I have finally decided to start blogging. Does the world need another blogger or another blog? Perhaps.

I’ve been busy, busy, finishing my Purposeful Mind series. This series of 5 books of compelling verses has been downloaded by me, or rather to me, several years ago from the Spirit realm.

Below is one of the poems from my fifth book of this series: METAMORPHOSIS, What Else Is Possible. Previous to this series I published 3 books that were in prose, so, yes, I do not wax poetic every time I write.

I call this series “conceptual spiritual” poetry. Enjoy.

Cocoon You Have Been

Illuminating, as it may be,
you are on the threshold of a discovery,
discovery of who you are.

Are you holding yourself hostage
by pretending to you about you,
withholding the information from you
about your true self?

Your commitment to yourself
is a way of finding who you are.
Are you a person who is not very grounded?
Are you a person who is spiritual?
Are you a person who is not well versed
in spirituality itself?
Are you a person who can climb mountains?
All of those need to be found.

Do not hesitate to ask questions.
Do not hesitate to negotiate
with your Higher Self, find who you are.
You can emerge as a cocoon or as a butterfly.
A cocoon you have been for a long time,
it is important to see that butterfly
open the wings and fly.

You can build bridges,
you can topple mountains;
you can change absolutely anything.
You can bring the changes, and you are.
You can accelerate from where you are.

Forget all mundane thoughts,
but still feel entitled to your little joys,
your piece of a pie, and a little talk.
Do not forget to think of yourself at all times.
What are your needs, your wants?
You have absolute power to do anything you wish—
it is your absolute, absolute power.

Love yourself; spread your wings.
Be your own guide and do not think
that others can change the outcome of your life.
You are a maker, a creator
of your own universe, of your own realizations,
of all your own palaces and caves.
