Monday 14 July 2014 – Shattering what we think we know

Absolutely moving…! Inspiring to say the least… As a collective the majority of us are conditioned by preconceived ideas or beliefs of what is possible or what should be, or how reality presents itself… As a natural byproduct of this process, we become entrenched in a limiting and perpetuating cycle of what we think we know or believe to be true or even possible.

Attached to this is a deeper connection of emotion that we link to these consecutive and habitual thought patterns that cause us to have certain beliefs about certain experiences, people, relationships, etc of our world… These emotional connections move to reinforce strongly these beliefs, hence when we attempt to transform our personal world view or attempt to defy what we previously thought was real we struggle internally both psychologically and emotionally, we often reach a place of difficulty and conflict, also known as cognitive dissonance.

There is nothing ‘wrong’ with any of the conditioned ideas or world views many of us have as a cultural collective or as individuals… What is essential to our growth (at multiple levels and layers) is that we understand that world views, beliefs, ideologies, consequetive and reinforced thoughts are products of our environmental conditioning, interpretation of these experiences and the meaning we then add to these experiences… Some scholars and wise individuals would even call this process our karma. It is then up to us to transform our karma, by transforming our inner state of being and understanding of the manner in which our world flows… SS.

Thursday 08 July 2014 – Self-education

If we educate ourselves as to what facilitates optimal states of being, we are then propelled in to a status of ‘elite’ and we are empowered to be the best we can be… This status of ‘elite’ or infinite is not a status associated with ego, but rather a recognition of pure potentiality and an expression of our highest potential….

Thursday 26 June 2014 – Reflective thoughts

Every experience in life serves us – consciously or unconsciously, habitually or creatively… This evolves, grows and changes as we are exposed to new and different experiences, as our preferences, desires, needs, yearnings and social circles evolve so do our ‘soul requirements’… What once served us beautifully, perhaps no longer does… Or perhaps what we thought once served us beautifully no longer does…

Monday 16 June 2014 – Intelligence

Intelligence…

Such an interesting concept. Intelligence has a broad meaning across so many varied facets of life. It is interesting to contemplate what intelligence actually is? There are so many questions that must be queried if intelligence is to be contemplated deeply and meaningfully… Are other attributes and human characteristics automatically a part of the integral make up of what constitutes intelligence? What application does it have? Is intelligence useful or even ‘real’ if it is not expressed or lies dormant? How could we then measure intelligence, and if we are measuring it, does it then assume comparability? And perhaps one of the most pertinent questions: Is intelligence contextual and/or situational?

Saturday 17 May 2014 – The Stratera Podcast

My good friend Adrian and I had an opportunity to spend some time together two nights ago and speak about some pertinent subject matter. Was very grateful to spend some time with such a unique mind. Check out the Stratera Podcast when you can. Adrian is doing some great things…

In this episode Adrian & I discuss the philosophy and psychology of human movement and exercise. We look at physical exertion from not only a physical but also an emotional, mental and spiritual point of view. Looking into the mind/body connection and how the mental state interacts with the body at a physiological level. We look at resilience building through exercise and how that can then help with other aspects of one’s life. We also look at the role of resistance and the duality in this Universe and how we can use those factors to facilitate transcendence. A wonderful conversation that perhaps left some of the subject matter discussed not expanded upon in greater depth. There is always next time…

Thank you Adrian! :)

Friday 18 April 2014 – 21 powerful principles to manifesting your reality…

When we dream (in the sense of creating the vision we wish for ourselves) we are essentially determining our reality and the way in which our lives will ‘play out’. Not only are we determining our own reality, we are contributing positively to the greater collective. By being true to ourselves we demonstrating a realness to the world. The concentrated power of manifestation and creation is potent to the great game of life… It is not as direct as this though… There is more involved in the manifestation and creation process than simply dreaming about it… For you to create the life that you wish, you must adhere to certain principles of being or practices that greatly facilitate this growth creation…

You can choose to manifest with a full conscious or you can allow your conditioned behaviours, cultural constructs, environment, inner thoughts and emotions to control what you create. When we are aware and conscious we are empowered. This empowered state of being is powerful for we then have the choice to decide what we wish to create for ourselves and others. This self-awareness is evolution and this evolution is an evolving wisdom that is crucial to all of humanity…

In reality, these principles are simple, conceptually understanding them is one part of the puzzle, careful execution accompanied with wisdom and the understanding of why is what is important and at times challenging here… Below are 21 powerful principles and practices we require in order to create and manifest the lives we wish…

Note: that when we have clarity, greater levels of self-awareness and a balanced perception of what life represents we are by default in a greater position to create and manifest…
