“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree, in the midst of them all.”

"Everything you take for granted is a blessing. 
Everything you fear is a friend in disguise. 
Everything you want is a part of you. 
Everything you hate you hate about yourself. 
Everything you own does not define you. 
Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.

Everything you wish for is already on its way to you. 
Everything you think creates your life. 
Everything you seek for you will find. 
Everything you resist will stick around.

Everything you let go of stays if it’s supposed to. 
Everything you need is right where you are.

Every time you bless another you bless yourself. 
Every time you blame another you lose your power. 
Every time you think you can, you can. 
Every time you fall you must get up and try again. 
Every time you cry you’re one tear closer to joy. 
Every time you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.

Everyone you see is your reflection. 
Everyone you know mirrors you. 
Everyone wants to be happy. 
Everyone wants to live in joy. 
Everyone seeks a higher purpose. 

Everyone breathes the same breath. 
Everyone needs love to survive. 
Everyone has a purpose to fulfil.

Everyone’s the same as everyone else. 
We just get caught up in labels, names, skin colour and religion. 

Everyone’s the same as everyone else. 
No one wants to feel the pain. 

Everyone’s the same as everyone else. 
Everyone is dying for love to remain."

"To pretend, I actually do the thing: I have therefore only pretended to pretend."

There is NO such thing as white lie.
A lie is a lie!

I do wonder of WHY some have the need to lied

Maybe it has become a habit....that had been practising over a period of time and had been instil in their blood.
Maybe the need to get off from being judge...

Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.

And for whatever the reason is....better to offer no excuse than a bad one.

Anything is better than lies and deceit!

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.” 

That saying is so true. 

"She says he says, but she could be lying to me, and he could be lying to her, so I can’t believe her, even if I could believe her.

People think that a liar gains a victory over his/her victim. What I have learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, 
because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, 
making that person one’s master, 
condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…

Those who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.

There are three types of lies;
damn lies, and 

Things come apart so easily when they have been held together with lies.

The truly scary thing about undiscovered lies is that they have a greater capacity to diminish us than exposed ones. 
They erode our strength, our self-esteem, our very foundation.

There is beauty in truth, even if it's painful. 
Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy, brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak. 
But lies only strengthen our defects. They don't teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything. 
Nor do they develop one's character, 
one's mind, 
one's heart or 
one's soul.

The truly scary thing about undiscovered lies is that they have a greater capacity to diminish us than exposed ones.

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

The reason I talk to myself is because I am the only one whose answers I accept. 

I always say the truth is best even when we find it unpleasant. Any rat in a sewer can lie. It's how rats are. It's what makes them rats. 
But a human doesn't run and hide in dark places, because he's something more. 
Lying is the most personal act of cowardice there is.

At times to be silent is to lie. You will win because you have enough brute force. But you will not convince. 
For to convince you need to persuade. And in order to persuade you would need what you lack: 
Reason and Right

“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar” 
― Abraham Lincoln

So if you don't want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.

When people cheat in any arena, they diminish themselves-they threaten their own self-esteem and their relationships with others by undermining the trust they have in their ability to succeed and in their ability to be true.

The rules are simple: 
they lie to us, we know they're lying, 
they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and 
we keep pretending to believe them.

Yeah, it never fails to amaze me how a single lie can undo an entire lifetime of good.

Every single word we say is for attention. And let that be okay

i - 

the belief in leaving or finding 
a self 
is nonsense

living is not a lost

there is nothing collecting what happens
and putting it in public bins

there is no roll call
there is nothing possible of being

the only thing that could even be
remotely absent
is the other

what memory did was captivate
what memory wasn't capable of experiencing

this captivation lasted as long as any other memory

no awards were handed out
the prize was singular
and pre-received

It just means 'language cannot explain what it is' .....

'I think you think you too much'
that thought cannot suggest a solution

'levels of thinking'

thinking about levels creates 
a series 
in order for a series to exist 
there would need to be a boundary between 
whatever determines one series from another 

'level 1' (boundary) 'level 2' 

this boundary has no reality 

x------------------ --------------------y 

the gap represents where the boundary would have to be 

at the space of the gap in any linear thought system there is a ? and that ? is does the gap consist of equal parts polarity 

x------------ ------------y
x----- ------y
x-- --y
x- -y

the difference between a line ( ______ ) and a circle ( O ) 
'what I think' 

a circle could be a gapless line and a line could be a circleless gap 
or take a piece of string and make a line 
and then take the same piece of string and make a circle 

in the idea of 'thinking too much' the polarity exists 'thinking too little' 
this is again the idea of levels 

if the 'thinking too much' were a valid statement, 
'thinking too little' would also have to be a valid statement 

where this validity exists is in the gap 

yes or no duality of quantity and quality in any statement
smashes together 
at the non-edge of the non-boundary 
of the yes and no non-duality

it is possible to spin the O and find room
for more spokes

thinking rules 
rules thinking
nothing knows the rules

can't stop 

non-time machine
with a 
time non-machine

same O

grabbed this weight set with both-and hands
and bent it into a 

no one on the island
understands what thinking is
or how it is working
or how it is functioning

the very idea of understanding
would require a boundary

a gap



I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet. Gandhi

( •_•)
\) (>
/ \  There a A LOT of people out their who either get comfort from, or enjoy, dumping their garbage on you. They either want to go on and on about all their problems or want to shoot down all your dreams by telling you how you can't do this or that, or shouldn't be doing this or that.

In the end, it is all the same - they have drained your positive energy and walked through your mind with their "dirty feet," more commonly known as negative energy.

Most of us allow this to happen under the assumption that we are just being nice, but we shouldn't do this. We have to look after our own welfare first. 

This means we have to take care of our mental, emotional, and spiritual self, and not let someone destroy our positive energy or mental peace. 

We would not allow someone to come in and add arsenic to our family meal; in the same way, we shouldn't let them poison our mind or spirit with their poisonous energy.

In the heart of the open space, with an invitation to reveal themselves, feelings rise to the surface of consciousness demanding release.

Too often we are encouraged to bury them, and sometimes in subtle ways reaching for a box of Kleenex when tears arise, 
so that things don’t get too messy, 
so that the wave stops before it goes too far. 

But we want it messy, if it is messy. 
We want it chaotic, if it is chaotic. 
We want it angry, if it is angry. 
We want it depthful, if it goes deep. 
We want it to be whatever it is, breaking through all the explicit and implicit rules against being real. 

Our salvation lives on the other side of the outpouring, when space opens up inside and invites transformation. If you find yourself pulling away, keep inviting yourself back to the feelings. 
And if it helps, name any voices that get in the way. 

Some that are familiar include 
‘I must always look pretty’ and 
‘I am must not fall apart’, and
 ‘I must not admit my secrets, not even to myself’ and 
the mantra of the co-dependent 

“I must protect others from my feelings’. 
Do your best to name the voices and carry on. 
Remember releasing won’t kill you. 
Repressing will. 
And if you release your holdings, it doesn’t mean that the aggressors have won. 
I spent years resisting my tears because I was under the misapprehension that if I revealed the pain, I lost something. 
But, in fact, the only one who lost was me, because I was actually carrying stuff inside that wasn’t mine to hold. 
Its not yours to hold. 
The more you let go of, the more you re-claim your own consciousness. 
The more you send back into the world, the more space u open inside to come back to life. In the heart of surrender, lies our greatest power.” 

This course is an invitation to heal, resolve, and be rid of the after-effects of difficult experiences and relationships with unawakened men. 

It recognizes that centuries of warrior conditioning have made it difficult for many men to move from their hearts in their relationships with women. 

Often without even realizing it, the unconscious masculine leaves an echo of pain, confusion and trauma that lingers, impacting on women’s internal freedom and life satisfaction. 

The course is an invitation to unload baggage that isn’t yours and to heal some of what has been left behind...

Run towards what you believe in....Make friends along the way. It enriches your life....

One: Don’t beat yourself up about your starting point, you are where you are and that’s where you have to start.

Two: Daily baby steps give results over time, be aware and consistent.

Three: Evaluate your progress, a decision should not be in terms of what you like and what you do not like, it should be in terms of what works.

Four: There are many paths, be open and curious.

 Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

You have to trust in something your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Do it - or let it be done - the thing for which your heart has always been waiting.

What is the risk?

Losing everything? 
Then lose everything.

The experience of failure? 
Then experience failure, taste it, find a new kind of success within it. 

Then open up to the glory of rejection, open your heart wide to the ones who reject you, see their pain and forgive them for it. 

Then fall in love with those voices of ridicule, seeing them as your beloved new-borns, your own voices in need of kind attention.

Life is too precious to waste, and too immediate to postpone, and the 'worst' that could happen is a broken body or a shattered image, neither of which are really who you are. 

Nothing to lose, except perhaps your imaginary pride, your frightened ego which secretly longs to burn in the furnace of living anyway…

I wander and also wonder!!

I feel flake today. 
The forced identity trip that the culture has us on derails the train before it gets going.

It is important to grant ourselves permission to wander as part of our spiritual journey. 
So often mischaracterised as lost, there does a kind of immersion in the not know that is actually quite focused & necessary if we are going to excavate and identify our divine purpose.

So much information can come up when we are looking in no particular direction. 

A sense of wander, Flake it till you make it.

I am just now coming out of years of immersion- grateful for those in my life.
Wandering gives me time to step back and reflect.

We've become too "outcome orientated" in the West actually often times to our spiritual detriment.
While it’s good to have and achieve goals sometimes wandering is a neglected part of that goal and sometimes a curvy line is better than a straight one!
Or to put it more concisely "God didn't plant tress in rows" that’s what I told myself always. So sometimes when we do not appear to be working, we actually are doing the most important work of all!!!

I am getting much more used to the "not knowing" - at first it used to freak me out -  controlling me - much better at letting it just happen but what a lot of letting go to get to this place.

It is essential that we allow ourselves to wander along our spiritual path and stopping to "smell the roses" that brings a new and fresh perspective that enable us to grow spiritually.
It when we chose to stray from our path that we get a rude wake up call and a lesson learned.

When that happen it is our higher self guiding us back to our self truth...

'deserve' is not something i understand 'get', that i can grasp i get it or i don't deserve? i don't really know what that could mean

Grace is not something that pours down from the heavens. 
It is something that rises up from within us.

We fall down, we get up. 
We get up, we fall down. 
We either see our stumbles as examples of our own victim, we are being abused by the universe or as opportunities for self-creation embracing life’s challenges as essential lessons from within. 

The gift of falling down there’s gold in them there spills. 
Stumbling toward ecstasy....

Our physical muscle structure requires this process in order to grow, it makes sense that our conscience, spiritual and emotional being would require the same process for growth.

We must not give up. 

It takes so much time to heal because we are not just healing our own wounds- we are healing the world’s wounds, too. We think we are alone with our ‘stuff’, but we are not.

With every clearing of our emotional debris, with every foray into a healthier way of being, with every excavation and release of old material, we heal the collective heart.

So many of our familial and karmic ancestors had little opportunity to heal their pains, when we heal, their spirits breathe a sigh of relief.

For anyone walking the spiritual path, this will surely ring true...

Feel like I'm back in the hallways again... Only difference is that, this time I'm armed with a good sense of humour and life lessons I'm picking up along the way...

There are many dark hallways, but your heart and inner light will always guide you to what you need next on your life, it is either love or a lesson.. nothing last for ever, only love  so do not fear the dark hallway, it is your teacher
