Let Freedom Ring

From bondage to freedom, the Soul's Journey

Can you hear it?

Can you feel it?

Congratulations to the Egyptian people who have stood in their Truth and claimed their future, en masse. The world’s soul has found a greater outlet for its expression of freedom and I, for one, stand shoulder to shoulder, heart to heart, soul to soul, with them.

What is happening? The people of Tunisia stood together last month and ousted a 25-year dictator from THEIR country. And now Egypt, the largest Arab country, has caught the soul’s wave of Freedom.

Quantum Physics tells us that we are all one energy, we are formed from the same quantum energy. The spiritual path I have learned most from is based on the concept that we are All One. Simply put we are all one energy, all one mind, all one heart and all one soul.

The soul is constantly seeking new ways to express Its Self. Remember that each of us is a soul based in its spiritual self choosing to have a human experience. We all come from that Whole Soul that exists as pure Love traveling a journey to live and experience more Freedom. This is our One-ness. From this we are individuated as unique expressions in our physicial forms. Remembering our fundamental essence while living this life is a profound way to find meaning, purpose and joy in life.

Now, can you hear their freedom ringing pure? Can you feel that new opening for their, your, our, soul’s greater expression in life? If so, embrace it. If it’s weak imagine it more. If it’s silent then spend some time connecting with your own soul so that you can connect with the Global Soul.

No matter what your current level, let us all join together and embrace these brave expression’s and imagine that Freedom, Love and Wholeness Ringing Loud enough for the world to remember its roots. It is an honor to be alive to witness the spark of vibrant living being ignited.

Blessings to those who lead the Soul’s Journey to Freedom

Lamar

An Idea for a regular inner practice. You can do this while meditating, exercising, going to sleep: Focus on those moments in your own life where you experienced a breakthrough in personal freedom, self expression. What circumstances led to this? What personal change did you make that led you to this? How did it feel? What does the soul’s freedom expressing through you feel like to you? Smell, sound, taste and look like? Now imagine experiencing that with a few million of your closest friends? Imagine what the Tunisians and the Egyptians are experiencing. And imagine their collective soul’s journey unfolding on the wings of love, freedom and wholeness.

The Soul’s Greatest Expressions

The Soul’s Greatest Expressions include: Freedom, Wholeness & Love.

Let Freedom Ring

Below is a somewhat abbreviated list of countries whose citizens risked their lives to allow their soul to express its greatest self.

Just some of the countries, in the last two decades, or so, made up of citizens whose souls are willing to risk the action of finding their Soul’s Greatest Expressions.

I post this as sort of an addendum to my post “Let Freedom Ring”. I think of these and the ones that I was involved via the media. As you recall these imagine how freedom must feel after such oppression. Let this stir your soul and your own personal freedom.

1986 Philippines ousted President Marcos

1989 – The fall of the Berlin wall. Germany begins its journey towards Wholeness

1989 – The people of China find an outlet, unfortunately temporary, for the world to witness their soul’s deepest desire for Freedom in Tiananmen Square

1991 – The collapse of the Soviet Union with pictures of Boris Yeltsin on top of a tank in Moscow’s Red Square

1998 Indonesia (where I used to live)

1989 Poland

1994 Romania

1994 South Africa first time all races could vote

2003 Georgia

2004 Ukraine

2010 Iranians disagreed with a rigged election and were squashed

2011 Tunisia

2011 Egypt

Development of Our Bodies – Seen and Unseen

Curious Mind News blog

It takes All of Us To BE All We are To BE

As we grow it is easy to see our physical development and make sure that we are physically maturing into an adult. We see it everyday in the mirror. When we are young our parents/authorities can see it and guide us.

Are we more than the physical body?

What about the rest of who we are?

I write this post to pose some ideas and receive some comments, not to provide answers.

We can consider that, just like we have a physical body, we have other bodies: A Mental Body, An Emotional Body and A Spiritual Body, at least.

So, how do you know if your emotional body is growing up and maturing into adulthood? You nor your parents can see it in the mirror? What are the signs of an immature emotional development versus maturing emotional development?

How do you know the status of your mental body development? While in school you know it by your grades and understanding of life. What other signs indicate this, especially after you graduate and enter the workforce?

And now your spiritual body development? How the heaven do you identify your progression in spiritual development? What kind of feedback does life provide you as you develop your own spirituality?

I did not write this to give you explicit answers. To accomplish that will be chapters of writing.

I write this to pose questions that make you ponder and consider your own development in the totality of all that allows you to have a human experience. The saying goes “If you ask the right question you will get the right answer.”

Please post your comments and present some ideas. We look forward to them.

Spirit to Form

I heard this quote that piqued my interest: Thomas Carlyle: The spiritual is the parent of the practical.
It made me go hmmm… Contemplating this I want to change the quote to:

The spiritual is the parent of the physical.
This is what is true. As we hold it in our thought field so shall it manifest in our physical world.

Vision It to Cause your Reality

Vision for a Better Life

Learn how to create your project/plan/business built on a stronger foundation.

The normal way to build something new:

We plan a new business by doing a business plan.

We do a new project by analyzing and planning out the steps.

In this way of doing life we are just accessing information on how it has been done by others. In doing so we are accessing our logical thought process which utilizes our left brain hemisphere, a massive database of what we have learned, of what has already been done.

We are so much more than just our logical mind.

We are designed to create from a more expansive mind.

When we use a process to access greater intelligence then we get ideas that are right for us, that fit with who we truly are in our uniqueness and how we are with this project.

Make a statement & Do it YOUR WAY

Learn to Attune Your Mind to greater intelligence in a way that you ask a question and receive answers. The answers you receive in this state come from a much broader perspective, from an intelligence that is infinite.

In this Channel of your Mind there is a way to access a vision of what you want to create. A vision that is of the project/business/goal already complete and working. Attune Your Mind to your Universal Source Mind and Vision with It. Get glimpses of your project/business/plan as it can be in its greatest form. And get answers in this process.

Intuition Deepens Your Life’s Pathway

Mind Technology, Austin, Texas

Relaxation is the first stepping stone to personal improvement.

Have you ever thought of someone from your past and you hear from them within days?

  • Ever have a knowing that something bad just happened to someone… to then have it confirmed?
  • Sometimes when the phone rings you know who it is? (without looking at Caller ID)
  • What about having a precognitive dream?
  • Did you ever know something about someone, inexplicably?
  • What about receiving a very clear message from ?somewhere? about what to do in life?

Are these just random events?

  • Do they just happen to people who were born with special gifts?
  • Is there any way to harness this phenomenon to better your life?
  • If there is a way would you do it?

Empirical Research has shown that people who practice the techniques begin to have experiences that come through their Intuitive Thought Channel. These NEW types of thoughts sometimes start occurring slowly and sometimes quickly, in a flash. These Intuitive Thoughts are just as valid as your Logical Thoughts. Many people live their entire lives in the Logical Thought BOX thereby creating a limited and safe life with less passion and less joy.

Mind Technology, Austin, Texas

Sometimes we must walk a one-lane path to make it to the next level in our personal growth

When you educate your brain so that Intuitive and Creative Thoughts become more predominant your life will start expanding, you will find an alignment with life and you will deepen your experiences.

Logical thoughts are limited by your life experiences and standard education because that is how they were created. Intuitive thoughts are not limited by physical senses, current education and life experiences.

Intuitive thoughts are limitless. They come from a greater intelligence that physicists call Quantum Intelligence which lies in all Quantum Energy. With the right educational system, which I do, you actually expand the use of your brain to focus in on and receive information from this Limitless Infinite Intelligence. This is the Source of your Intuitive and Creative Thoughts. To train it properly is to expand its usefulness.

CAUTION: Trained and Effective Intuition may cause greater fulfillment, happiness and harmony with life.

When you have questions AND when you are ready to initiate a major life direction change then contact me and let’s make it happen.

Are you ready and willing to change the way you relate to life? To improve it?
I look forward to meeting you.

May we all LIVE BEing fulfilled, loving and peaceful…

Choose thoughts to be in alignment with what you desire in life

Science of Mind magazine

Science of Mind magazine

Our thoughts are the programming mechanism for how our brain is programmed to relate to all aspects of life and our inner selves.

AND our brain determines how our life is lived.
PLUS it is the organ that allows us to interface between this world of form and the creative world of infinite possibility thereby shaping our own experiences in life.

Thus it seems that the way our brain is programmed is an important part of us that we would do very well to organize it and learn best ways to use this key quality of life organ the way it is designed to be used.

Here is a Daily Guide from the Science of Mind magazine:

Within the acorn is the mighty oak

God gave me the ability, with the rest up to me… We have to believe, believe, believe.
Billy Mills, Lakota Olympian

When we shall have arrived at a sufficient understanding,
our thought will take us where we wish to be.
The Science of Mind, page 340

An old song says, “Want a carrot, plant a carrot, not a brussel sprout.” This farming example clearly shows that the seeds you plant in the garden become the plants you get at the harvest. Within the seed is the entire idea of the plant, encoded, ready to sprout, waiting for the warm, dark earth in which to germinate. What an amazing thought. Your part is to choose the seed and nurture the sprouts.

The same principle and law work in the mental garden. What you plant in mind, you will harvest in form. If you have an abundance of brussel sprouts but really prefer carrots, then it’s simple – remove the roots of the sprouts and plant carrots instead. If you have excessive thoughts about financial stress, remove them and replace them with conviction of financial well-being. Then nurture those new thoughts.

We say we know this, understand it, and still the stress seems to have some invisible grip on us. We refuse to stop worrying, complaining, being afraid, or to make better choices. We must learn how to break the patterns that keep us imprisoned in the lies of limitation. Ernest Holmes (info about him) said, “Successful people think about success. A successful man is filled with that subtle something, which permeates everything that he does with an atmosphere of confidence and strength.” Faith doesn’t happen by accident; we develop it by coming to believe, one thought at a time.

Affirmation to use:

This is my choice: My thoughts are focused on my desired experience.

—————————————————
This is copied from: Wednesday, September 29, 2010, Daily Guide in the September issue of the Science of Mind magazine

Note: When you commit to changing your thoughts to be in alignment with how you want your life to be then I highly suggest this magazine. It has great articles, monthly columns and daily readings like the one above. One of the columns is by the neuroscientist I mention in class, Mark Robert Waldman, bestselling author of How God Changes Your Brain

You have heard me talk about tuning your mind to the right channel. Read some positive new thought material in the morning to tune your mind to curiosity and contemplating a new thought throughout the day. This helps to keep your mind tuned to a channel for having new experiences in life.

An Awesome Choice We Make, Daily & in Every Moment

Rev. Beckwith Agape

Michael Bernard Beckwith & Agape

This writing is inspired by the sermon that Marianne Williamson gave at the Agape International Spiritual Center this morning. This is the Spiritual Center of Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith; from the movie The Secret, Oprah, Larry King Live, on the world stage. You can see his Sunday service online at www.agapelive.com. It is more than just an uplifting experience. Marianne Williamson, www.marianne.com gave an incredible talk, inspired and practical; mind and heart enhancing.

[For people who are not familiar with some terms. ‘Go to level’ means to meditate while staying focused. Beta mind refers to your experience of the world as you know it with your eyes open and fully engaged with your senses.]

One reason to go to level frequently, at a minimum daily, is to wash away the stresses from yesterday in order to keep yourself from going stress-psychotic and reacting to this world of form in destructive ways through destructive thinking.

Let us take a short journey through the limited world of being normal.

Our five physical senses do a great job at showing us ‘what is’, what is in our life now, the problems, the judgments, the pains, the world news, etc. The world detected by this and our emotions is a world that already exists. And in this outer world, some may call the ego world, we only have the mortal thoughts with which to handle it. These mortal thoughts and reactions will keep this outer world doing what it knows how to do since, in this mind state, all thoughts and ideas come from your collected database  of knowledge of ‘what is’ and ‘what has been’ and are experienced by and stored through your beta mind into the left hemisphere. We know this well; it is the origin of any problems we may experience.  And it keeps building and we get more stressed and we react more so out of self righteousness and indignation, qualities of our limited ego mind that thinks it is separate from us and from everyone else. We get to be right. The price of being right is illness, negativity, doubt, misguided deeds, separation, feelings of inadequacy, etc. The ultimate price of being right is living a disconnected existence, living small and not doing what and not being who we came here to do and be.

Let us take a journey through the unlimited world of BEING.

By going to level you are entering into a meditative state, a prayerful state, a place from which you operate from your centered being where you are connected to the infinite intelligence through your intuition. It is as if you left the apparent world of form with all its baggage, walked through a hallway and emerged into the majestical Theater of All.

The first benefit is that outside world experience begins to fade away as you turn your attention to your inner self and its world of possibilities. Any built up stress begins to immediately drain from your body. Any built up negative thinking begins to immediately drain from your mind. If that is not enough of a reason then…

The second benefit is you plug into increased intelligence, to commune with the infinite creativity using your intuition. By entering this world of cause daily you are choosing to empower that infinite potential self within. You are choosing to dis-empower that limited self that lives without; without the saving grace of new and creative thoughts that lead to an expanded life.

The third benefit is that once you have disconnected from ‘what is’ and connected to ‘what can be’ you can now generate ‘what shall be’ from your unlimited, loving, compassionate, expansive, inspiring, awesome, vision-driven, infinite and authentic self.

Let us now call upon our divinely-given skill of Free Will and make a choice.

What have you chosen? What do you choose now?

Imagine making this choice every day.

Imagine making this choice with eagerness.

Imagine facing each day born anew and feeling unencumbered by the past.

Imagine intuiting empowering thoughts from your unlimited potential.

Imagine witnessing your own transformation as they become the majority of your thoughts.

Imagine, as a direct result, feeling empowered and transformative feelings.

Imagine allowing your perfect life to unfold from within driven by your Highest Vision and Purpose.

Imagine Living as an expanded BEing.

Imagine Living in an expanded World.

Imagine It. Be It. Live It.

And, So It Shall Be. And, So It Is.

Meditative Thought from Michael Bernard Beckwith

How do we become authentically, totally free? Is it even possible in the three dimensional realm? My personal conclusion is that we cannot find absolute freedom in the external world. We have to go beyond the five senses of the outer world and enter the fourth dimensional inner realm where we use our sixth sense, intuition, to directly contact the authentic self.

The authentic self is formless-no description on Facebook or Twitter can describe the authentic self, It is made of pure consciousness. The more deeply we move towards actualizing this awareness the more we infuse our outer lives with its beauty and freedom has tremendous beauty.

Freedom

A few of us went downtown Austin for the 4th of July Fireworks and the Austin Symphony Orchestra. It was fun to be along Town Lake and it was a good show.

As I was laying back and staring at the sky I wondered what Freedom means to me. There are the standard concepts… A founding principle of this nation in our Bill of Rights is freedom. Our troops help us maintain our freedom. I think of an eagle, fireworks, sparklers.

Then I began to wonder: What does Freedom Mean to People on a very personal level? When someone thinks or says ‘freedom’ what is it that is going on inside. I first think about our Free Will, a quality of our thought process that we are born with and I cherish very dearly. This assures me that my thoughts are ultimately my choice. I get to choose them… And knowing as much as we know about how Thoughts Create Reality then there is always room for hope. We can always change our lives by first changing our thoughts. This is one thing about the Silva Method classes that is generally not spoken about; it teaches you how to think differently giving you management privileges and skills for your thought processes. Very empowering.

Then I considered those great feelings I have experienced many times in life; a visceral sense of freedom that comes when a set of old stale patterns/beliefs/thoughts melt away.  That sense of freedom that comes when somehow, some way I feel as though the mental walls of my life’s possibilities has rapidly expanded. This usually can occur in classes that focus on personal experience. [I am working to bring back a transformational weekend experience I used to do; it was titled Creating Real Magic. This class was an environment for people to let go of their old walls and to imagine going beyond them.]

Then I wondered about how many times my own limiting and personally oppressive thinking has held me back. The joyous part of that realization is to then feel the personal freedom I just reclaimed for my living. I now get to use my imagination and think more expansive thoughts that will lead me to a more expansive life. Freedom is an aspect in the environment of life in which I have the Free Will to choose the direction of my life. This, to me, is a new opportunity to feel greater joy and love about my life. The sense that the intent of life is leading us on an upward spiral and providing us with what we desire is reassuring.

“The road to freedom lies not through mysteries or occult performances, but through the intelligent use of natural forces and laws.” Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind
