Michael Cupo
I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 24 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 26 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law's “Who My Sister Shouldn't Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn't. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn't dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn't exist in me, there wouldn't have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change.

Quotes

As one wanders through the maze of life, at some point if it’s not realized you are lost, you will continue to wander aimlessly without direction or a clue as to where you are going.

The only time one struggles with life is when it’s made to be a struggle. This only occurs when the Conditioned Mind is in control. The mind will settle when the practice of letting go is developed.



Life is simply a process and the results that manifest in one’s life are a direct result of the support given to their process. The seeds that you plant are the seeds that will grow, there’s no way around this.


If you don’t have the tools in place that allow you to truly let go, life will seem as though it’s personal and in the process you will remain attached to using the tools that cause you to suffer.


The energy that love emits has more of an impact than the energy of hate and although you may love, others around you may not, but their energy will at least be neutralized because that’s just the way love rolls.


If the noise in the head is the control point of one’s life, it won’t stop because there’s a belief in some unforeseen power. Beliefs hinder the mind’s settling because they create the blocks to one’s inner presence.




Everyone has the choice whether to change or stay the same, but it’s only those who truly know it’s their conditioning that needs to be changed that have this choice.



The tool of pushing away that’s developed to cope with life is why one’s life is seemingly full of problems, but whatever arises doesn’t cause the problems, it’s the pushing away that does.


The mind sees things through the vastness of itself which exposes the magnificence of life, the brain on a the other hand limits itself by thinking knowledge is wisdom; not that knowledge is a bad thing, but it doesn’t set you free.



Not investigating the way life is lived leaves it up to chance that it’s being lived in the most beneficial of ways. Our mind is our greatest asset, yet it’s also the greatest block to truly living life to the fullest.


The usefulness to the Universe is a direct result of how much one is in touch with their heart and although many people will be touched when this occurs, some will not no matter how loving you are.



Life happens, but not truly in the way one thinks it does and only when the mind settles will it be seen it’s not that important because what truly matters is not to be right, but to be at peace.




Existence is naturally spiritual so choosing Presence allows for one to come home and although the mind will often wander, having a Presence direction will keep one from remaining lost.




If you truly want to follow your dreams look down at your feet. Unless the mind settles and there’s awareness of this, life will never be truly lived because one will be caught in the fantasy of needing a dream.



There’s a oneness with life that comes from a deep place in the heart, but it’s not something that any human activity can make happen, it’s a connection to the heart that comes from the Universe.



Don’t believe anything you think. A thought is only a thought and it’s not necessarily true, but unless one’s mind is settled enough to see this, the thought controls what happens next.



What is needs no story because it’s what’s here, but if life is preferred to be a certain way, where you’ll be living is in the preferred prison of what isn’t and that’s even if life is exactly how I prefers it.



When love is the energy of one’s inner state, it emanates transforming energy out into the world. Many will pickup on this energy and in the process they will transform. This all occurs because love is the base of what one thinks about.




One’s intentions will be from the base energy to give or to get and this makes the world the way it is. So if you want the world different, simply have the intention to give and watch it change.


There’s a pull that occurs in most lives that keeps broken tools in place without investigating them. The issue with this is these tools are passed on to others so the blind are leading the blind.



Separation from oneself occurs when the source energy of creation is made into a story because it then becomes my story and there’s no connection when one comes from a place to self serve.




Don’t let the different consequences of wanting lull you into the sleep of unconsciousness because all wanting leads to bondage in one form or another regardless of what’s wanted.




If you keep bringing the past into the present, the past will be where you live your life. Why this is unfortunate is because all of one’s emotional pain of the past will also be carried into the present.


What is considered normal by society entraps most people to the idea of what others think normal is and unless this can be seen so one can go beyond it, there will be acceptance of someone else’s idea as the norm.



Don’t allow anyone to take you from your place of peace. Let them think they’ve gotten the better of you and won, as egos go this satisfaction will be short lived before needing to win again, but a solid foundation of peace can last a lifetime.




Regardless of what happens in life, if it’s not accepted as it is it will cause suffering. Even if what’s occurring initially causes suffering, the suffering will deepen if it’s unaccepted.



Emotions arise when there’s attachment to something that triggers them. At the root of this is I and as long as I is in control, the roller coaster of emotions will continue to take you for a ride.


Every experience starts out as a primary one, that is until one needs to add a story to it because the ability not to isn’t in place. Until it is, one’s primary experience will always be secondary to their story.




The Conditioned Mind is a story making machine and all the stories eventually come to a conclusion. However most of these conclusions are unconsciously created to fit into a story of fulfilling some selfish desire.


See how a mind agitation arises from your conditioning, it’s not there because you were born that way or that’s just the way you are, it’s there strictly because it’s the way you’ve been conditioned.


Needing to turn in to an object happens because it’s one’s I that makes this so. Only turning away from this clinging will result in freedom and this is because it’s the turning away that provides the letting go.




Until the veil of ignorance is removed, the “monkey mind” will be in control. This isn’t in place as something that’s wrong, but it does block one’s true essence from arising and because of this one doesn’t truly live.


Life is a learning experience and if you’re not learning it’s probably because you have your own agenda of what you think life is about. When you truly see the light, your own agenda is no more and simply falls away.




Understanding the phenomenon of remembering is very important in breaking the chains of bondage because it’s the attachment to I that makes one only remember what’s pleasurable.



Situations unfold in life and the view that’s in place is the way one will respond to those situations as they occur, as a matter of fact everything is related to one’s view and will be responded to accordingly.




Because of the way one’s mind becomes conditioned, its normal state is mostly agitated. A true gauge of life is if you’re at peace right now with the world exactly as it is without having to save it.



There’s so much collective conditioning in our society, it’s almost impossible to break free. This is why it’s so difficult to break an addiction because the thing addicted to is always focused on and not the collective conditioning of I.



Investigate what’s been written or said before holding onto the story I makes you think you need. Do it with everything read or heard and in this space of investigating you will find not only truth, but freedom too.




You may not be able to change the way things are right now, but you can live in a way that lets your love shine through by just being with the task at hand and doing what’s in front of you.




Notice how much you think the same thoughts over and over and you just may be able to settle in a place where your thinking isn’t in control and you may also realize thinking the same thoughts doesn’t really provide much of a benefit.


Our walk of life is not one of a made up perfection where it has to be the way one thinks it should be, whatever arises has to be accepted exactly as it is with seeing the perfection in the desire of wanting things different.


Your life is yours and as easy as it may be to follow someone else’s path, if they didn’t live the life that you’re leading, their tools just may not be the most beneficial for the way your life is.



Only the Conditioned Mind really cares about winning and losing and it’s because when it applies one of those labels, there’s attachment to the emotional energy of being happy or sad.


Hate will never be driven out by hate, so if it’s not observed that hate is in place, hate will remain and the energy that one despises in another will be the same energy that’s controlling their life.




Thousands of hours of time and money are spent on trying to fill a gap that doesn’t need filling. The nature of the gap is emptiness and it will always be there. It’s not your enemy; in its emptiness one is filled.




Not many people will change something in their life unless they see a reason for it, but even if it’s seen, without some sort of understanding of the Conditioned Mind, it will be difficult to do the things that allow change to take place.




Truth isn’t a made up story, it’s not something that can be held onto, it’s only known when it’s realized there’s nothing to know and it’s in the not knowing that the truth will set you free.


There are many “False Gods” out there that are used as idols that keeps one in bondage, and although it may appear that the “False Gods” create the bondage, the bondage is to I that attaches to the idol.


What’s seen on the surface of life is all a facade and until it’s seen that below the surface is what truly matters, one will be living as though you were a stranger unto yourself.




Peace is the natural process of awareness because when one is aware of their Conditioned Mind antics, the antics lose their hold as the need to do falls away and one is naturally at peace.


Looking at yourself takes more courage then most people will ever exhibit, but only because the conditioning in place doesn’t allow it, and until your life isn’t about you anymore, your conditioning prevails.



Although the old may be firmly in place and it may be true that you don’t know what you don’t know, if this isn’t investigated what you don’t know will be the only thing that you know.


Evaluating and learning from your practice allows for one who was once lost, to now be found and one who was blind, to now see, but only because of having a practice in place that allows this.


We don’t give names to wild animals, they’re categorized by their form, but humans are given names for identification purposes and this is the beginning of one’s fictitious self as an individual.


Every belief is formed for one reason and that’s to make life seemingly better. If it was this easy one could just go around making up belief after belief whenever life wasn’t going the way one thought it should be.



Head (intellect) living knows love only through a story, heart living knows love through the peace that passes all understanding. The head will never understand what the heart knows intuitively.


Grateful to be alive, not only for today, but for each and everyday because life itself is our greatest gift.

Being grateful for life occurs naturally as does love when there’s an understanding of what’s needed to live from the heart. Although love is natural it’s not automatic, so cultivating love is when life results in gratitude.


To be inside the circle of love, the heart must be unlocked and although this may not change what’s around you, it does change one’s view from looking inward to “I” to looking outward from love.




To be inside the circle of love, the heart must be unlocked and although this may not change what’s around you, it does change one’s view from looking inward to “I” to looking outward from love.




Opening your heart to everyone includes yourself, so love yourself exactly as you are and understand if you don't, it's only because of the conditioning that's in place.

Until one embraces the energy of just being with what's occurring right now, one will continue to seek what is deemed perfect and miss out on the perfection already in place.

Look down at your feet, regardless of where they're planted this is your beach. If it isn't it's because the need to reach is in place and it's blocking you from finding the beach you're already on.

When you are mentally somewhere other than where your body is, most of your life will be missed. Until there’s a mind and feet connection, the haze of the Conditioned Mind will continue its onslaught of control.




When the selfish self is in charge, you may think you have real concerns, but the truth is the only thing there’s a concern for is the selfish self getting what it wants when it wants it.


When the selfish self is in charge, you may think you have real concerns, but the truth is the only thing there’s a concern for is the selfish self getting what it wants when it wants it.




Many believe they have choices, but the reality is, there is no choice because one can only do what their conditioned view dictates and good, bad, or indifferent it’s only done because it’s what’s in place.


Seeing conditioned behavior for what it is doesn’t condone unloving behavior nor does it exalt loving behavior, it just allows one the understanding that a person can only act as the conditioning in place dictates.




The ways to be drawn in by the world are endless, but understand the draw comes from your own mind and even though the world provides the triggers, you alone attach to them.


Although the mind is usually everywhere but the present moment, the body is a great anchor to use in a sitting practice because there’s no way it can’t be in the present moment.




The ego lives in the ignorance of the Conditioned Mind, but when there’s light shed on this, ignorance falls away and the ego no longer needs to defend itself because it no longer considers itself an adversary.


The noise in the head won’t quiet on its own regardless of what one has a belief in. Beliefs hinder the quieting because they’re just a response to a mind agitation that blocks our inner presence.


Love is given a lot of lip service in our society, but not much heart service. You can’t pick and choose who to love, either you love all or you love none, there’s no such thing as only loving some.




Life is the way it is not because of what happens, but because of the label that’s applied which makes our attention selective and limited. If you can get beyond the label, you’ll understand just how limited it makes life.



The only thing that makes a person think something needs to be added to life to enhance it, is their own conditioning and until this is realized, this conditioning will keep one searching for something to add.


The body anchors one in the present moment, so when this alignment occurs there’s harmony, but if the body isn’t used as an anchor, the mind continues its grasp for objects and the present moment remains elusive.



Wants are conditioned driven, it matters little to life or the Universe whether they’re fulfilled or not. You can make up a story that it matters, but that’s your story not life’s.



Wants are conditioned driven, it matters little to life or the Universe whether they’re fulfilled or not. You can make up a story that it matters, but that’s your story not life’s.




Formed concepts keeps one in a conditioned prison, this blocks one from seeing that in the stillness of non labeling, there’s no lock on their prison cell and there’s a beauty to life that only non labeling will reveal.




When thoughts are used as the primary means to live by, there will be a very limited view provided by the minds content, but when the mind settles, a second view opens up which provides unlimited content.



The Conditioned Mind creates a lie of a void, the heart understands this as emptiness, until this is realized, one will constantly need to reach for something to try and fill a void that doesn’t exist.




The Conditioned Mind is very unstable and has nothing solid to base itself in, so there’s very little peace in a life that’s based in the mind because its energy constantly wants things different.



Many things in life can be a teacher if one is open enough to allow it, but if there’s constant noise in the space between one’s ears, nothing will be seen as it truly is; Be Still.




When one has a filter in place that sees things as they are without any association to I, it opens one up to a different way to view life which allows for experiences like never before.




The true essence of life can only be understood by being. Life is not a doing because it exist regardless of what you do. Defining a life through what you think you need to do is your doing, not life’s.

To be and to do are a part of life, but doing occurs from the essence of being. You can always be, but you don’t have to always do. Actually if you aren’t aware of being, whatever is done will be a distraction from the true essence of being. Our experiences are a result of what we do in life, but they don’t make life what it is because if they didn’t occur, life would still be. Doing creates stories. Being creates life.

Think about the most beautiful thing you have ever seen and experienced, now how much does it have to do with life right now? It is a fond memory, a story, but this exact moment would still be regardless of what was seen and experienced. At the time I’m sure the experience was breath taking (to the Conditioned Mind) but it really has nothing to do with right now. The story of it does because the conditioning makes it so, but that is your doing not life’s.

To be is life because to be is. It always is regardless of what you do. This is where many fall short of understanding the true essence of life because doing and not being is put first and is thought to be what’s needed to live life. But life will always be, until one day it won’t be. And all the doing in the world will not stop this from happening. So do whatever it is that you want to do, but understand it is in being where life arises from and when you’re just being, life is lived to the fullest because you don’t have to do. We cannot do the next right thing, we can only be the next right thing. This is why it’s said to “Just Be” not Just Do, because to be is the true essence of life. The simple saying “Just Be” can be used as a tool to stop the squirrel cage “doing” mind in its tracks. After all, we are called human beings and not human doings because it’s only in being that our life can be lived to its fullest intention not to do.


The true essence of life can only be understood by being. Life is not a doing because it exist regardless of what you do. Defining a life through what you think you need to do is your doing, not life’s.



Needing to become something doesn’t enhance life because the becoming keeps the mind agitated. It may give an appearance of enhancement, but there’s no real benefit to one’s energy while trying to become.




A person doesn’t wake up because something from the outside shakes them, it occurs because the jewel within is discovered; everyone has this jewel in their possession.




If we are to ever unite as a people, the selfish energy in place will have to fall away, if it doesn’t the energy that makes an adult a foot stomping baby will continue to be reinforced.




There are many situations throughout the day which provide the triggers to reach for a quick fix, but if there’s awareness of this, those triggers will not produce the unloving results of needing a quick fix.



Most people have no idea how much suffering the Conditioned Mind causes and until it’s fully realized, it’s better to be neutral. At least in seeing things from a neutral state, there’s no separation and one remains free.




The minds expansion is only limited by the view of life that one is locked into. When the mind opens anything is possible because the conditioned limits that are in place, simply fall away.


Today’s gift is simply to be alive and although the Conditioned Mind wants to make it about something more, there’s nothing that truly makes life better other than the simple fact that one day being alive will not be so.




What occurs in the present moment can’t be changed, but it can be accepted so life is truly lived, and when life is truly lived, it’s because what’s there is accepted and nothing needs to be different.




There are endless possibilities in life when there’s no past labels applied to what’s in front of you. The Universe provides possibilities with an open heart that’s not living in the past.




Although the pleasures of the world take on many forms, it’s the thirst of one’s heart that makes one seek them. This thirst can only be quenched in stillness, because when the mind is still, the heart has no thirst.



If we seek what we think is needed to wake from our sleep, one will probably remain asleep. Our urging is from the Universe, but this will not be known if we are immersed in a self that thinks it knows what’s best.





There’s no real good or bad in life, there’s only the story of good and bad. If you don’t think this is true, watch the story attached to what you like (labeled as good) and what you don’t like (labeled as bad).



If you can truly get beyond the story of contributing to life and just be in the stillness of the moment, your contribution to life and humanity will be beyond anything you could make up as being needed.




Today there’s a change in the year, but this day is like every other day as each one should be treated as if it’s a new beginning. Life is precious and every moment alive is a gift, not because of what one has, but because one day life in this form will not be so. Happy 2017 and may your life be a blessing to all beings.




There’s no suffering in the space of love because true love has no attachment, so being aware of one’s “I” attachment and not holding onto it allows love to be the guiding force of one’s life.



Being intelligent doesn’t make you wise. Wisdom is something that occurs naturally as one learns to understand their own mind. With this understanding, wisdom arises and goes beyond the intelligence of what one thinks.




In the present moment storied versions of truth cease to exist because there’s no need to create them and without a storied version of truth, there’s no deciphering what is actually true.



When the body is used as an anchor to remain present, you begin living your life in the only place it exist; where your feet are. In this space one finds true love, but this isn’t a story of love, it’s the love of the present moment where nothing else exist.




“I” likes to make mountains out of molehills through attachment and although pain and fear are things that may arises, they don’t have to be given the energy “I” wants to give them and the only reason “I” does this is so it exist.




Many think they’re on a track that leads to where they want to go, but upon further investigation, if you’re always looking (reaching) for a different train, the fault lies in the chosen train not being on the right track.



An awakening can be likened to a ball on a hill, nothing else is needed than the initial nudge to get it rolling, and it will just keep on building momentum until something gets in the way to stop it.




Accepting everything as it is seems like a very tall order, but the alternative is to not accept it and look at things from an upside down view (wanting things different) and in the process cause your own suffering.




Accepting everything as it is seems like a very tall order, but the alternative is to not accept it and look at things from an upside down view (wanting things different) and in the process cause your own suffering.




If you can develop some awareness of inner stillness, the background perspective will have less control as your mind agitations subside and without these agitations, one will never have a need to reach for anything.


The difference between learning from each stage of life and living it to its highest quality or being stuck in a stage where life is the same old same old, is breaking free from the lie of “I” or remaining its prisoner.




Hope is like wishing one’s life away as it keeps you from experiencing the present moment. It’s used as a crutch because what’s occurring right now is always what’s here, as opposed to hoping for the present moment to be different.


No perspective is wrong, but if you only have one, it limits your view of life and in the process it doesn’t allow any other results except those from that one perspective.




We use tools we think will provide us with things that are beneficial to our life, but my experience has been if they don’t allow you to keep your head where your feet are, they’ll be tools that don’t really provide the benefits being sought.



When you judge it’s unloving, it has to be as it’s the nature of judging. It matters little how it’s justified and for what reason the judging is done, all judgement separates as it arises from unloving energy.



The energy of the past has so much pull because of the way the Conditioned Mind uses past experiences to process life from and until this is realized the present moment will basically be out of reach.





There is way to much thought on the individual level for unity to be a reality. Most people have an agenda and it’s usually attached to satisfying themselves in some way and until this is seen, not much will change.




Because of the way the mind becomes conditioned, your own mind keeps your view narrow and limited. If at some point the mind doesn’t settle, the narrow and limited view remains intact and nothing new arises.



Awareness is key in breaking free from the grip of the attractions of the Conditioned Mind, and the only reason the grip is even so is because of the selfish nature of what’s at the core of these attraction.attracted to things that don’t allow for the space to be free.



You can’t escape from your own energy output because it comes from within you so there’s no where for you or it to go. Love and you will be love because that’s the energy within you.


Life itself is only a consequence of the energy that’s attached to, so stop attaching to past energy patterns and watch life naturally become different as its energy is transformed.


The shift that occurs in an awakening is an opening of the heart which allows the truth within to surface. When this occurs where there was once blindness one will now see.


Never miss an opportunity to see the beauty around you. Learn to enjoy the ride because one day as with any journey it will end and when it’s all said and done all you want to be able to say is, what a ride!




In the present moment suffering doesn’t exist, this isn’t because unpleasant things don’t happen, suffering doesn’t exist because there just isn’t a need to label it as so.




Hold on to all the beliefs, march, protest, whine, judge and slander in the name of righteousness, just know this energy is unloving and it makes the road to waking up that much more difficult to access.


Whatever you cling to becomes your prison, if you don’t stop clinging and create some space to make room in your heart for love, you are the one who will suffer the most.


Ever so slowly the Conditioned Mind relinquishes control if discipline is developed and it’s this discipline that allows one to be with life as it’s actually happening.


When there’s a need to reach for something to provide peace, one is entangled in this thought, and until this is understood, one will remain entangled in the thought that peace is in the next thing reached for.


What the unawareness of an unconscious hook does is it keeps the exact energy that one is standing up against in place, and in the process it doesn’t really change a damn thing.


Nothing from the outside truly controls you regardless of the injustice, either real or made up. It’s the frozen emotions attaching to what happens that cause certain behaviors to arise.



Stand up for all your causes, do whatever it is you think is needed to do, just don’t attach to it and watch how your triggers dissipate along with the insane thoughts that you’re not part of all this insanity.




A mental relation reaching for God is no different than a mental relation reaching for Heroin, and although these will produce much different outer results, the same inner bondage remains in place.




One who always needs things different is one who is always discontented and why one is always discontented is because one always needs things different; the dog chasing its tail syndrome.



Cultivate love and you will naturally love, cultivate an “it’s all about me” mind and that’s the exact energy you’ll put out and live by; wherever you go goes your energy.



The main reason why one’s existence is so problematic is because of the way we compare our current self to our previous self and to the self of others. This blocks the ability to see our completeness as we are.



We repeat the same mistakes over and over and we constantly respond to the same triggers because we react out of the habit of what’s familiar, and this is done without even realizing it.




When one’s intentions are aligned with Universal Love, there is love for all beings, not because it’s wanted, but because this is the way love rolls when one’s intentions are aligned with Universal Love.



Life is always perfect in the present moment because it’s always what’s there, and no made up path will change this, but the path of no path will because nothing needs to be any different than what it is.



The happiness which most seek is always contingent on something from the outside, if this or that happens then I’ll be happy, but true happiness is from within and doesn’t need anything to be.



Emotions can’t rule you if a self isn’t created. This concept of self is the operating system behind our emotions, so when this self isn’t reacting to the outside circumstances of life, there is peace.




Our answers are always within, one just needs to make sure the tools that are being used are heading you in a direction that is the most beneficial to your life.




Until why there’s a need to reach for something to be fulfilled is understood, one will remain a prisoner to the reaching and will always be looking for the next whatever for fulfillment.




The value of truly knowing who you are is priceless because it allows the mind to settle instead of needing some story pretending to be this loving, spiritual, head in the clouds person.


Are the tools you have in place truly suitable to allow you to love yourself unconditionally and thus love all beings, with the key word here being all and not just the one’s you deem suitable.



Although what occurs now happens now, when it’s seen through the eyes of the past one isn’t with what is actually occurring. You can’t be present for the present when the past is being used to live now.




Only the Conditioned Mind needs to create a purpose for life. In the space of stillness everything just is and it’s clear that the purpose of life is to just live with whatever’s there, without the need to create a purpose.




There are many people who have good intentions to do what’s loving, but they don’t because they can’t, and this is because unconditional love isn’t in place, conditioned love is.




Reaching itself is the issue, not the thing being reached for. Not everything one thinks is healthy and supportive is truly beneficial. It will take a very settled mind to see the subtle bondage in the things one thinks are supportive.

When life is lived from the head, there’s all kinds of self serving agendas and needed results associated with them, but they don’t really enhance life in the way one is looking for, so more agendas are created and more results are needed.




When there’s a belief you need something that will provide peace, one is immersed in this thought, and until this is understood, one will remain immersed in the belief (thought) that peace can be reached for.




There is never a lack that isn’t created so there is never a true need to rely on anything from the outside of oneself and until this is seen one’s bondage will remain intact.

Everyone truly has the love in their heart to be free of their conditioning, but because it’s not understood how harmful the Conditioned Mind is, it locks one into their own suffering.



Watch the moment to moment stories arise as they try to attach to whatever it is that’s occurring, if you truly see this, you just may be able to break out of the prison of needing a story.




One’s higher vibrational energy has to be understood so the bondage of self is truly let go of and one’s higher self can reach its true potential to be an instrument of love instead of an instrument to satisfy one’s lower self.




Each of us gets back the karmic results of our actions. We are our own judge and jury and for the most part our verdicts are determined by the actions that are done in secret.


The mind loves to create problems and until this is seen, it will continue to do so even though everything passes in life, especially the problems that are created.




Through the way we become conditioned, we see life as if there are imaginary puzzle pieces that need to fit into certain spots, and because of this we are constantly working on completing the puzzle.




The present moment is naturally free flowing because there’s no resistance, there’s no trying to make it different than what it is. Projected energy stops the flow because it’s based in trying to manipulate what is.

There’s so much reaching in our society because there’s so much distracted energy and you can only be the energy that’s in place. Just see so you can be because the distracted self is never free.




From the time existence in this form begins change is constant, some glaring and some very subtle and it happens without permission. How this change is adjusted to determines how one lives.




The mind will only settle when there is stillness. You cannot do anything to be still. It arises from itself. When the intellectual mind stops seeking, the internal urging will settle in its own stillness….



It’s the worldly view of satisfying our self that keeps one from the clarity of seeing their own innate beauty. This clarity will only occur when one’s view comes from looking inward.




A lie is always a lie, and until the root of the lie is exposed, truth will remain hidden beneath the justification caused by the ignorance of the lie. Only truth truly sets one free.



A story needs a title to be created. We supply the titles of our stories when we live from the storied self. Without this story of self, our innate Divinity arises naturally without the need to create it.




One’s self doesn’t cause conflict, it is conflict and as long as this concept of self is in place, there will be conflict and this conflict will always be with itself.




Mindfulness allows discipline of the squirrel cage mind and the more this discipline is developed, the more awareness one has of the delusions that have been in control.



Not only is it human to err, but it’s also strictly from being human that one attaches to wanting something different than what it is which causes one’s own suffering.




Whatever is learned that one needs to be happy will be what becomes their pursuit. It’s not right or wrong, but the key is to understand if the pursuit will truly provide what one thinks it will.




As long as there’s ignorance in place, this is the operating energy of one’s life. This operating energy arises as what’s on the surface and it doesn’t allow one to see what’s truly going on.




Many remain stuck seeking because the lie of “I” is never exposed. Life becomes about whatever story is made up as the genuine reality of what truly is is mostly missed.




Life will always be life and it will always be as it is, but you don’t have to be stuck in a mind state where you’re not mindful of what’s actually happening.




The road that leads to a peaceful life begins and ends in your own business. You can be mindful that you’re thinking about what someone else is doing, but the only place you’ll ever be free is in your own business.




Life is constant movement, it never stops. If the movement of the moment is noticed, it will allow much more understanding of one’s life than if one is blindly controlled by past habitual mind patterns.




There's not much life in something that's stagnant and this is what happens when one's free flowing energy is cut off by a fixed view; the fixation causes one to suffer.

The projection you have for something is the projection you have for yourself. Without a settled mind this will not be seen so projecting will continue to be the controlling energy in place.




One can only see things as they are revealed and although it can’t be any other way, don’t kid yourself, this doesn’t mean it’s truth that’s seen, it just means it’s the way you see things.




There are different ways to handle things as they arise in life, but the key to not being controlled by them is to understand why and who is it that's being controlled.


Life happens, but it’s our own mind through the thought process in place that makes it what it is. Our mind creates our entire world through the possessiveness of thought.


Feelings are a given, they’ll always be there. To feel is human, but taking them to the next level to form concepts is when attachment arises as a belief the feeling needs to be different.




In this life everything is impermanent, if you’re stuck in a “need to know mind” the door to true freedom will never be experienced because there’ll always be the thought that there’s something more to know.



Being sad because a loved one dies is natural. If one could just be with the sadness without tightening up like a closed fist, you would remain open and an I story wouldn’t come into play.




No one harms you as much as you harm yourself, and it’s done through your own unguarded thoughts. The essence of life is to truly learn to love yourself unconditionally so you can in turn love others.




Too many people worry about getting to heaven and because of this, life passes you by. A belief isn’t needed to see this, but it will take a mind that’s settled not to make it into one.




When one is under the control of the Conditioned Mind they behave in ways not because it’s the way that one wants to be, but because it’s the way one has to be.




It is imperative to learn to just be because even if what you do comes from a labeled place of love, this label produces the bondage of an unguarded thought which controls you like any other unguarded thought.




Although it seems what someone says or does or what occurs in life is the cause of one’s arising unrest, this is not the case. The unrest that arises is already in place, if it wasn’t there’s no way it would arise.




It’s very simple to understand the mind, it can be broken down into two mind states, wholesome and unwholesome and everyone who is alive will be guided by one or the other.




Learn to let what happens to remain where it occurs. Once something is done it is done, there’s no need to create a burden out of it, that is unless who you think you are needs to do so.




To not create stories one has to not mind what happens. When one wants things to be different, your power is transferred to whatever it is that’s wanted different and hence a story is created.




Everyone begins existence complete, it’s just that not many realize it so this produces a need to reach for it. Most people have a sense of lack in their lives so the reaching seems natural, but it’s not.



Nothing is the whole of anything unless it is labeled as so and who does this labeling, but the idea of an I that only exist to form the delusional concept of self.




A person can only do what the conditioning in place dictates them to do and although it’s looked at as having free will, without investigating if what you are doing is coming from love, there’s nothing free about it.




As we grow up we develop in a way that the conditions in place allow for the development to be as it is. Simply put, if our development was based in loved, humanity would be much different.




Acceptance of the way things are goes a long way in providing oneself with the stability that provides the maturity of not needing to reach for a pacifier in whatever form it takes on.

There’s no way one will ever fully understand life conceptually so answers are made up, but in the space of silence one hears what the moments of life have to say and answers aren’t needed.




If anything is ever going to change in our world, the programming in place will have to change. This will only happen when it’s seen the programming isn’t providing the most beneficial results.




When truth is revealed, no longer does one listen to the mind because it’s understood, you shouldn’t believe everything your mind tells you because it just isn’t true.

I’m right and you’re wrong energy is the kind of energy that’s mostly in place and it makes for ego charged situations. Simply put, it’s the reason for our current state of affairs.




Justice is never truly served by wanting to get even or wishing ill will on someone. This is because when this is done, the only justice served is against yourself.




In the space between our thoughts is where our innate love lies in wait, when one awakens from the thought realm of thinking to see this, the stepping stone to liberation won’t be far behind.




Thinking because you have done something for a long period of time it automatically makes it the right way is so limiting that one can’t seem to get out of their own way.




When there’s a need to reach for something because of a mind agitation, one is entrapped to their thinking. Until this is seen, one will remain entrapped to thinking peace is in the next thing reached for.




Life is as difficult as the not caring for something energy makes it and until one learns to be with what happens without applying a label, what happens will continue its onslaught of control.




Beneath the surface mind activity there’s nothing but space. This is difficult to see because life isn’t about what you think it is. In fact life is everything you think it isn’t, but it’s not seen because of trying to figure it out on the surface.




There will only be peace when there’s acceptance of things being as perfect when they are in disarray as when they are exactly as one wants them; this sums up the path to liberation.




Attach to nothing and nothing will be needed. Imagine that, needing nothing and being happy, joyous, and free just because you’re mindful of being complete just as you are.




The mind just loves to make a problem out of what happens in life and until this is seen, it will continue to do so even though nothing is inherently a problem until it’s made into one.




Whatever you attach to becomes your bondage. If you don’t stop attaching and create some space to make room in your heart for stillness, you and the world will suffer, but you will suffer the most.




Seeing what’s truly going on in your life will take an open mind so a past label isn’t instantly applied when something arises. No label is needed for life to be, matter of fact labels restrict life.




One’s selfish flame of desire can become a destructive inferno if it’s not known what causes it to ignite. This is the fuel of “I” and it will have to be removed to prevent the selfish flame from igniting.




It’s very easy to see if the direction of your energy is pointing you to behaviors that are truly beneficial to you and humanity by the amount of peace there is in your life.



When there’s awareness of seeing from the heart instead of the mind and one doesn’t engage in what comes from the mind, it makes for a view of life that is much different than what most people see.




The realm of Spirit is where our true nature manifest. It’s where one connects to all of life and basks in the warmth and sunlight of the Spirit. It is our true home.




Grasping gives an arising event control, leaning into it puts the control basically in your hands, not with what occurs, but with how it affects you. Leaning allows life support.




Everything arises from a state of silence, but not everything’s heard from a state of attention. Freedom from the known can happen, but only when it’s learned how to truly listen from a state of attention.



Don’t hold onto anything and apply a label to it as being the way it has to be, because regardless of what it is it will change and if you don’t accept that, the ability to truly live your life will not happen.




If things aren’t done that put you in cooperation with life, it will be impossible to hear what life has to say. For this to change it’s imperative to learn about one’s own mind which will go a long way in allowing one to hear what life is saying.



Wanting to change the way that you feel goes on in just about every moment of everyday in people’s lives. The things used are only addressed in the way they affect one’s life.


Natural Laws puts one in harmony with life, so take heed and understand life really never does anything to you, but if you break the law it will be unnatural and it will certainly seem like it does.




Loving is the way one reacts to others when their own life is based in love. This doesn’t mean others will return the favor, but the more you love, the less you will react to others in non loving ways.




A compass is a tool that points in a direction, but it doesn’t tell you what’s up ahead. It will guide you to go in the right direction, which is all one truly needs instead of relying on someone else’s map.



Notice how the same thoughts arise over and over and you just may be able to settle in a place where they aren’t in control. You may also realize these repetitive thoughts don’t really provide much of a benefit.




One is aligned with life when there is alignment with the present moment. When one is pulled out of alignment with the present moment, it is then that the nonsense of the childish mind begins.




In the space of stillness everything arises and unless one remains in the stillness, the energy of wanting it different will arise and the ensuing result will be because of the action in place.



Our human condition is what the Universe uses so our existence can manifest. It shouldn’t be denied or ignored (clung to) because if it is, there will be much suffering as our true essence is missed.




Being grateful for being alive comes from understanding what it takes to live from a heart of love. It’s not automatic that this occurs. When love is cultivated it produces gratitude for our given life.




As long as the effect of whatever cause there is is in place and it’s wanted to be different, it will seem as though life is the one doing to you what you are basically doing to yourself.


Although it seems outside circumstances are the cause of one’s mind agitations, this is not the case. The agitations that arise are already in place, if they weren’t there’s no way they could arise.




True refuge will never be found in outer things regardless of what the thing is one is using to take refuge in. What’s unfortunate about this is, most people use outer things for their refuge.




Without recognition of the habits that are formed, one is blindly controlled by them. They say jump and the only thing you can do is jump, and if you are really attached, you will ask how high.




When a thought arises and it becomes a repetitive activity (habit), it’s not because one is diseased in some way, it’s because one is attached to a false self that thinks it needs the thing being used.




One who constantly needs to grasp for things to provide amusement is blocked out from what life truly has to offer, which is to be with what’s here right now instead of constantly needing to amuse ourselves to death.



Our view of life is determined by our conditioning. An out there view is what most develop, but it’s a delusion that doesn’t allow what’s here to be seen and if one is living out there it’s impossible to be with what’s here.




The most important thing to understand about the seduction of pleasure is the less one is attached to “I” the less one will be seduced and it’s because without “I” there’s no one who needs the next pleasure.




What’s reinforced is what will remain in place. It’s pretty simple in that regard, but doing things that allows the mind to settle is probably the most difficult process one will undertake in this lifetime.




The epitome of a noisy mind is it constantly tries to keep you from noticing there’s another way to see things, and as long as the noise is in place, a quiet mind and another way will never be experienced.




The attraction to what’s wanted arises from some deep mind pattern and it’s because this isn’t realized that the wanting winds up in control. To the extent of one’s wants is to the extent of one’s suffering.




The more your expectations are from a self serving base, the more you will be disappointed with the experiences of your life. Love never expects, so when you love, you’re never disappointed.



If you don’t see the thoughts that hold you in bondage, you won’t see them as garbage, and unfortunately because of the garbage being held onto and cultivated, it is the garbage that you will live by.




When life is accepted as it is and you see the wisdom in this, you will react to the changes of life in alignment with Universal Love, not because you want to, but because it’s the only thing in place.




If one’s energy is established from a base of quietness, then love becomes the energy emitted to others. This energy emitted is what makes love the base for others and this is how the energy of love changes the world.



Made up stories that arise from one’s conditioning only take away from life, they don’t add to it. This makes the place where most live a world of make believe where there are no true facts to the stories that are made up.




If all we do is allow past Conditioned Mind Patterns to control our life in the present, our future is pretty much determined for us. It’s the fear of the unknown the keeps one stuck in the familiarity of the past.




The awakening process is nothing more than to get in touch with the filter of self that’s in place and observe how it only exist because the Conditioned Mind makes up a concept that it does.




One can only do what the conditioning in place allows and unless more people wake up to see what that conditioning is, it will remain in place and pleasure seeking will be the driving force behind one’s intentions.




Everything passes in life that’s a fact, but delusions trait is to make everything permanent. Only when the mind is at ease will one see the delusion for what it is and only when this is seen will the delusion fall away.




When happiness has to be manufactured instead of it naturally arising from the heart, there will be a dependency on needing to reach for it as the next fix and it’ll always seem as if it’s out there.




Loving energy not only changes you, but it also changes all those who are touched by it, so regardless of what arises move on and live as perfectly as you can, just remember nobody’s perfect.




Be the nothingness of who you are underneath all the noise so when it is time to pass on you will understand, all you will take with you is what you started out with.




Everyone has the potential to be whatever it is that’s in them, and although it may not be exactly what’s wanted, the mind will need to settle so it can be revealed what YOUR potential is.




By not attaching to time, breaking life into segments isn’t needed because it’s realized it’s always Now, but not the concept of Now, just Now as in where your feet are.




Most people are deluded what an awakening is, but for those truly awake they are awakened to the delusion, the mind that tells you to do something is the same mind that questions why it was done.




As energy is compounded, it’s given the label of wanting what’s occurring to be different, this sets off a merry go round of motion that keeps one entrapped to this compounded energy.




Truly loving yourself is natural, but most minds are developed in such way that it constantly connives to satisfy “I” as it makes you believe you need to get yours.



You can spend all your time believing and making up stories about being spiritual, but it won’t get you any closer to understanding spirituality than if you believed in the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus.




When one’s unloving conditioning changes, the things being done that are unloving will also change, but this isn’t a choice to be made, it happens naturally because of what’s in place.




Those who don’t understand their lies cannot know truth and therefore remain a slave to the lies. You needn’t have all the answers to know truth, you just need to expose your lies so you’re not enslaved by them.



There’s no reason to try and get what you want unless you are unhappy with what you have. This only happens because the mind doesn’t know how to just be with what’s here right now.




Attachment is a double edge sword, not only does the original attachment get you, but when you’re attached to outcomes where they’re labeled as not liked, attachment to the attachment gets you.




To love is to live. Without love, there is the constant need to seek answers to questions about life, but when you love the seeking stops because the need to ask questions stops.




The more one’s thinking is in line with the world, the more suffering there will be. This is because the world only allows a surface perception, but beneath the surface perception is what’s truly going on.




The more one allows things to be in control, the less one truly lives. You may be alive, but until it’s seen that everything falls away, you will remain in bondage to whatever you alone give power to.



Seeking happiness makes it elusive so it will constantly be sought, and this is because the Self that wants happiness only knows how to seek it, it doesn’t know how to be happy.




When the “I need more” conditioning isn’t controlling what’s let in, there’s much more peace in one’s life, but this isn’t because peace is let in, it’s because nonsense isn’t let in so that naturally allows for one to be at peace.




The world's rewards are not true rewards because the world only holds you in captivity to it. Sit often to develop the discipline that allows the mind to settle and watch what happens.

Truly diabolical is the Conditioned Mind and what makes it so is it isn’t seen nor understood that your enemies cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts can.




For most, pleasure is something that’s constantly sought, this is a direct link to what keeps the mind in a state of agitation. When one can just be with things as they are, pleasure is no longer needed for the mind to be at peace.



A different view of life will only occur if the current view is seen as not being beneficial. This doesn’t mean life will be as you think it should be, it means life will be exactly as it is without needing a story.



The next time the need arises for you to reach for something, ask yourself if it’s truly needed and if you can see that it’s not, you will be complete simply because nothing will be missing.




Attaching to the things that ties one to their emotions makes life unstable. It is beautiful to truly experience love, it’s just not so beautiful when one is tied to something emotionally and it goes away.




No one knows what the future holds unless the past is held onto. Holding onto the familiarity of the past keeps one not only entrapped to it, but it doesn’t allow for the door to new possibilities to open.




Everything should be considered small stuff in life because nobody gets out alive and regardless of how tight life is held onto, one day just like that it’s over along with everything that one attaches to.




Attachment to spiritual thoughts creates stories, the more tangible and practical one makes spirituality, the less there’s a need to create an airy fairy story of what isn’t instead of the tangible facts of what is.




When what you have is more than enough, it’s because of the love of your own heart, but when you are given love from another, it opens up a beauty to life that can only be seen through the eyes of their love.




Learn to love, not because it’s your true essence, not because it’s for the betterment of humanity, not because of any other reason except that life is so much better when you come from a place of love.




Clinging to anything is a prison, but the thing grabbed is only the sentence, the prison is the lie the Conditioned Mind creates that tells you what you cling to is needed to make life better.




Without the distractions of the conceptual mind, there’s no separation in what’s being observed so there is a natural peace that can only occur without labeling it as so.




Understanding why things are as they are goes a long way in breaking free from the collective conditioning, when one gets this there’s a real chance that history won’t repeat itself.




The mind only becomes agitated because of the conditioning in place and as long as there’s awareness of this, you don’t have to take on the burden of it being your fault which allows you to move on.




When the blame game stops, it has nothing to do with the world or people changing, it’s because the enemy is found and it is you. Once this is seen there’s no more pointing a finger at someone because there’s no one to blame.




Now is not a magical place, but because it’s the only place that truly exist, it’s the only place where you can be liberated from your stories (yourself) and truly live your life.




Finding peace is like finding a lost city, there are many maps out there that just don’t lead to what you’re looking for. And if you think the map you’re using is the correct one, why are you still looking for the lost city?




The past is real to the extent that it happened, but it’s not real to the extent that it’s held onto. If regretting the past is in control of the present, the only reality is the stagnation of living in the regret of the past.




There’s a learning curve in life that allows one to let things go so compassion can arise. It matters little what our intentions are if what comes out of our mouth or if our actions aren’t from compassion.




Unless the mind settles enough to see itself, most of one’s thoughts will be a conditioned lie so you really shouldn’t believe everything you think because a thought is but a thought and it’s not necessarily true.




A thought is but a thought, it has no emotional tie until there’s attachment, but its not the thought that has control, it’s the attachment because without the attachment the thought would have no energy.




A heart of love doesn’t suffer, it aches. Primary emotions are the main emotions that arise and they’re far different than when there’s attachment that allows secondary emotions to arise.




The way one gets hooked to things all comes from the same inner attachment to self and the only way there will ever be freedom from these hooks is by simply not attaching to self.




Mental bondage to our old thoughts is only real to the level of the unawareness of this and because the bondage is so subtle even when there is awareness, it’s still difficult to let the new in.




The Conditioned Mind is marred in darkness and because of this the world is the way it is. Not enough people see the light and even though the light is always there, it needs to be noticed so one can turn towards it.




To the level of understanding of how you alone create the stories you think are needed to live your life, to that extent is how your created stories become the lies you live by.




As long as you are alive the next moment will happen, and how that moment is evaluated determines the direction and type of energy for that moment and thus for your life.




If you say life is difficult then it is. If you’re just with life as it is without a label, then the mind struggle ceases and it’s because you’re not doing the thing that allows it to occur.




Living from a place of love is better for everyone involved, just understand it’s not special, it’s natural and many in the world just do it so don’t make it about what it isn’t.




It seems as though there’s a choice between a mind that’s noisy and a mind that’s quiet, but when there’s no awareness between the two, the noisy mind rules so there is no choice.




A created lack is why one reaches outward for something. Inward is one’s indwelling completeness based on one’s own indwelling love. Any lack is strictly created by having a view that something’s missing.




Look beyond the shallowness of what the world presents and how it’s adhered to. It will be beyond this adherence that one’s true self emerges. If not, one will remain confined to their own shallowness.




Truth builds a foundation for life that is not easily swayed by the circumstances that occur. An erratic existence is what happens when a roll of the dice conditioning is relied upon to build a foundation for life.




Peace isn’t something that just happens accidentally to a person. Even if it isn’t realized, peace is the result of being aligned with the energy that allows for it to be.




Temptations arise and seem like they are a part of being human, but giving into them is not human, it’s conditioning and as long as the conditioning is in place, acting upon an arisen temptation will be common place.


Life consist of a lower and higher frequency and the one that’s most prevalent in your life is dependent on how much I is in control. The more I controls, the more the lower frequency dominates.




It may seem like one chooses what they do, but what is done is mostly controlled by the conditioned self. When this conditioned self is in control, there’s no choice because what is done is already chosen.




Many of the same thoughts arise and wanting the moment different is the common energy of this repetitive thinking. When you’re with things just as they are, there’s little room for repetitive thinking to be in control.




Life is a process and the results that manifest in it are directly linked to the support that is given to the process. The seeds used for support are the seeds that you live by.




To have a purpose to help others would mean someone has to be suffering in order to fulfill that purpose, this created purpose creates bondage and wherever there is bondage there is suffering.




Once one wants the moment to be different, the label difficult is instantly applied, and when this difficultly becomes too heavy just put it down and understand nothing truly needs to be different.




When the questioning stops it’s not because one has all the answers, it’s because answers are no longer necessary and what anyone else has to say only has value as it relates to your direct experience.




Life is mostly viewed through the intellect and as long as the tools developed by the intellect don’t fail, this view will most likely remain as it is with very little quality of the mind.




There is a choice in every moment that occurs which solely puts your life in your hands. If you don’t have awareness of this, you will be controlled unconsciously by what occurs without a choice.




A person can only see what they’ve been influenced by and what influences you is limited by the books you read and whatever else is attached to from external sources.




A distraction causes a person to reach for something because the mind is in a state of agitation. Distractions block the ability to live a life aligned with the love that’s in your heart.




The Conditioned Mind which is based in noise, constantly tries to create a world that makes you think you need to be happy. This created noise blocks one from seeing their own innate goodness.




An anchor needs to be established so there’s a place one can return to when the merry go round mind is leading the charge. This is a place where it’s safe and secure away from the insanity of one’s own mind.



A story always needs a subject to focus on to be created. We supply the subject of all our stories when our focus is on the base of I. Without I, our innate divinity sustains itself naturally without the need for a story.




If you’re always trying to arrange things to your liking, it really shouldn’t be a surprise when most of the time things aren’t to your liking. One is truly free when it’s learned to be with what is, not what’s liked.




You can live from your head, but you can only love from your heart. You don’t love in the past or future, you love in the present because the energy of the heart is from what’s happening now.




Unconsciousness is only supported by unconsciousness and because of the subtleness of unconscious energy this results in pointing fingers at others without the ability to truly look at yourself.




The only reason protesting energy is in place is because one thinks (a story) the present moment isn’t good enough so it needs to be changed to the way the Conditioned Mind makes you think it needs to be.




Unconscious energy affects everyone. It matters little where or why it arises, that is does is the only concern and until this is seen for what it is, it will remain unconsciously in control.




Humanity is stuck in trying to fix our problems with the same energy that creates them. Violence trying to end violence with violence or anger trying to stop anger with anger just doesn’t work.



We’re all human and because of this we have many traits in common, but there’s one difference between those who are awake and those who remain asleep and that’s the awareness of just how conditioned one is.




When something is wanted other than how it is, it brings on a chain reaction of circumstances that causes a separation with the present moment and thus with others.




You cannot suffer without the thought of suffering. Again: You cannot suffer without the thought of suffering. See the truth in this simple yet profound statement.




Understanding conditioned behavior for what it is doesn’t condone unloving behavior nor does it exalt loving behavior, it just allows one to see that a person can only act as the conditioning in place allows.




If you truly love there will be much compassion and that’s the energy that may someday change the world, but wanting it different just reinforces the judging energy that’s controlling the world.




The Universe does its thing without any help whatsoever from humans. Until this is seen, one will judge and the role of God will be taken on. It’s in one’s judgements that they are judged.



Truth is not something that’s created to make life fit nicely into a mind made story of the way one thinks life should be. Truth is already in place and it doesn’t need a story to make it so.



Accepting the imperfections of yourself is just as important as accepting yourself when you’re acting in a loving manner. The key is to remain with loving energy regardless of what happens.




In quietness all truth is revealed, not because it comes from a book or a conjured up conditioned thought, it’s revealed because it comes from love. Know the truth and be set free.




Remove the mask of addiction the Conditioned Mind uses and see yourself as the beautiful creation that you truly are. We’re all from the same Universe that accepts us just as we are.




To be present in the moment is to be with what’s occurring at this exact time. A distraction will arise when the mind becomes agitated because discipline was never developed to be in the moment.




Until it’s understood there’s never a true need to change the way that you feel, addiction will remain at the level of epidemic proportion because needing the present moment different will be all that one thinks about.




If it wasn’t for the attachment to a false self that creates bondage, addiction would be non existent because the craving of a self needing life to be in some other way would never occur.




Unconsciousness is ignorance and although there’s no bliss in being ignorant, there is a certain innocence in not knowing what you don’t know. Until what you don’t know becomes known you just won’t know.




Life isn’t a competition to be more spiritual than someone else, it’s simply to find that place within which doesn’t require a story or concept to be at peace and to remain there as much as possible.




The only way loving energy can be emitted out into the world is by allowing the silence of the Universe to play the instrument without one putting their conditioned selfish spin on it.




One has to be just as ok with perfect disease as with perfect health for there to be silence. Only when silent will it be seen that everything will work itself out and it’s because there’s no needing anything different.




There’s no denying the Conditioned Mind is like a pleasure seeking machine, but giving in constantly to doing what’s liked keeps the conditioning in control and thus one in bondage to it.



When impermanence is understood the craving for fulfillment is replaced with a satisfaction that whatever happens next doesn’t really matter because one day what happens next will prove just how impermanent everything is.



The search for peace will never result in peace because the search itself is what keeps one from experiencing peace. Only when the mind settles will the discontent subside and just like that therein lies one’s peace.




The depth of our stillness is what determines the depth of our love. Without depth there is just what’s on the surface and this flip flops so easily because of the dependency on things.




When there’s attachment to form it opens up a doorway that leads to suffering. This doesn’t mean all that life has to offer can’t be enjoyed, it’s just that nothing last so why attach to it.



To those who can remain silent goes the spoils of the Universe. To those who have to disagree out loud because of holding on to I am right energy, goes the spoils of selfishness.


The thought of what one thinks truth is isn’t truth. Once one truly awakens to come from a place of love, the only thing left to learn is how to remain in this place.



Stuff happens there’s no denying this, how it affects you is directly related to the feelings and emotions that are attached to. Why this is a problem is because it makes something factual that’s just not real.




It’s not like one can control their thoughts from arising, but we can develop filters so at least they’re not in control. Whatever is the base of these filters is what will be emitted out.




The beautiful thing about love is it transforms on its own, it doesn’t take doing. Probably the most misunderstood thing about love is the more that’s done to try and love, the less one truly loves.




Everyone has been conditioned at some level even if this is adamantly denied. The thing to understand is the more one denies their conditioning, the more the conditioning is in control.




All conflicts are within, they arise from one’s inner questions. Without the practice of discipline, the inner answers won’t be provided so one will have to look externally and blame others.



The mental fabrications that are created to form an identity of self are actually the very thing that blocks out one from being in the space of their true self.



When one wakes up from the sleep of the Conditioned Mind to notice just how much control it has over you, it is then that the chains that hold you in captivity are slowly removed one link at a time.




There’s no denying the self exist, but there are two versions of it. One is the self that thinks it constantly needs, and the other is beyond the thought of needing because it’s beyond the thought of self.




When one awakens from the sleep of unconsciousness and carries a message to others, whoever the message is carried to has to be let go of. If they are not, one becomes a part of the unconsciousness.


Keep using self serving tools and nothing will ever be different, or use the tools that are available which allow one’s own innate love to manifest and see what happens.




Attachment is the root of all suffering. It disguises itself as depression and many other things. If it’s not understood it’s all self created, the attachment just gets more deeply engrained.




If you think you are your thoughts, you will always have to be working on something because that’s what your thoughts will tell you, that is until you realize you are not your thoughts…




When one is in alignment with Now, there’s alignment with life. When you’re pulled out of this alignment, it’s at this point that the door is opened to allow all kinds of nonsense from the Conditioned Mind.


  


The repeated Conditioned Mind Patterns can be devastating if they’re not understood. These patterns show up in many ways, but when the mind settles most patterns fall away and life truly begins.




A logical mind sees that things are as they are mostly because of the lack of discipline that a quiet mind provides. Logic allows the mind to settle into a state that’s pure, innocent, and free.




Because of the way we as a species have evolved, very few people are actually present for what happens in life, but when you are you can truly be with life without getting tied up emotionally. What a gift!




Mostly we would never allow someone to treat us the way we treat ourselves and whether this is seen as conditioning or not, it doesn’t change the fact that we are usually our own worst enemy.




Our inner child is innocent, loving, and caring. The more the self serving mind is in control, the more one is claimed by worldly desires and possessions and the less one is aware of their childlike innocence.



The only time one struggles with someone’s passing is when it’s looked at it from the point of I. There is peace in my mother’s passing and it comes from her because she is no longer suffering.




Living from the heart stops the need to reach because the heart doesn’t beat in the past or future, it only beats now. When one is in touch with the heart, there is simply living in the only place that exist.




Without preparation, the constant pull of attachment will be the norm and so will an agitated mind. Sitting to develop discipline assist so when one’s conditioning is triggered, it’s not as easily given into.




The beauty of life can only be seen if that’s the view one has of the world. The world can only be seen through your own eyes and how quiet the mind is determines if one’s view is a thing of beauty.




The mind loves to make a problem out of something that can’t be changed. The reality of any situation is if it can’t be changed there’s not much one can do so it’s not really a problem.




Every time the mind becomes distracted and reaches for something it thinks it needs, it equates to a sinking ship sending out an SOS; the reaching is one’s call for help.



Just Be – Add nothing


Selfishness produces a void which is why the things used to fill it are reached for again and again. We all have an addict in us as the consequences of the things used result in the same bondage.


If there isn’t awareness that one’s own thoughts create the reality in which you live by, those thoughts will continue to create a reality that’s only real to you.



The labeling process in place is all part of attachment and until there’s awareness of this, suffering remains. The degree of suffering is contingent on how attached one is to their labels.



Seeing through eyes that have a default view from the head (intellect) presents many more questions than answers, but a heart view (love) needs no such answers because there aren’t any questions.



As much as you think you love, a true measurement of love is in the love you are given. This is because no matter how much you love, you can never give as much love as you are given.



Gratitude occurs naturally as does love when there’s an understanding of what’s needed to live from the heart. Although love is natural it’s not automatic, so cultivating love is when life results in gratitude.




A lighthouse is likened to a person who is awake. The design of both is to simply shine a light that provides those who may be lost with a direction to safety; that light just may be the only one a person sees.




We all hear what we hear. Some are fortunate to hear the music of love, but some only hear the same old song of the Conditioned Mind that blocks one from hearing the beautiful music of the heart.



Nothing is inherently who you are, but inherently you are all things. If you can truly sit and just be in the space of what is, you will see everything is of the same space.



When things happen to you that take you by surprise, will you be ready for it or will you revert to the self that’s based in the world and go in the opposite direction of your spiritual nature.



Human behavior hasn’t changed much over time, it may have actually gotten more conditioned. Thinking is just the way the Conditioned Mind keeps one in its prison to the delusional self.



We are here simply because of the Universe. Life is the Universe’s celebration in the manifestation of our human form and love is our true nature. To awaken to this is to awaken to the celebration of life…




Why many don’t truly break free from their addictions is because the things being used are usually addressed as what needs to be changed. When what causes the reaching is changed, the addictions fall away.



We seek because the Universe calls us, we see because the veil of ignorance is removed and our energy is directed by the director of that in which we seek.



Going through life without an understanding of how the mind works makes this existence much more difficult because it limits the options. Limiting the options, limits the choices.



Awareness aware of awareness…..that’s it



Everyone uses the tools they think are the best ones or they wouldn’t develop them, but that doesn’t mean they are the best tools available. If a tool is truly the best, it will never ever cause suffering to oneself or others.



The label of up and down isn’t applied by life, it can only be applied by you. Life is simply the stillness which everything arises from and it never labels itself, only the projection of what you see can do that.



Attach nothing and nothing will be needed. Imagine that, needing nothing to be happy, joyous, and free, and understanding that you’re complete just as you are.



We are all unique in our own way and until it’s realized your answers are yours and yours alone, you will continue in the discontented search mode grasping for someone else’s answers.



The illusion that the past or future is a better place then what’s occurring right now creates our lack and in the process our incompleteness. A created purpose is a created illusion.




When there’s the understanding that cooperation with Universal Energy allows one to be in harmony with life, it is then that one will experience liberation from the bondage of self.



Each day upon arising we make a decision, even if there’s no awareness of this one will either start the day in cooperation with the Divine Purpose or our own purpose; along with this decision are its consequences.




Not many people will see something different is needed in their life unless they see a reason for it. Without an understanding of the Conditioned Mind it will be nearly impossible for this to be seen.




The expansion of consciousness only happens in the now and it will only occur when one isn’t being distracted and using things that keeps them from the awareness of what’s occurring right now.



All that happens in life affects a person because of the way one’s own mind allows it. The insanity of the Conditioned Mind is its self destructive distractions are all from within which means one creates their own misery.




When one’s distractions are seen as distractions, it is then that their true nature is revealed. Liberation will follow when the next distraction arises and one can simply turn away from its enticing lure.




There are two ways a person can live, the mind set in place determines what one brings to humanity. Serve yourself and serve one or be of service to love and all humanity will be served.



The inner disturbances that keep you from your peace have nothing to do with life. They are a creation of your own mind and that’s what creates the disturbances which make you believe you are not at peace.




Attaching to the thought about a situation is what allows emotions to take over. When this is understood nothing will pull you in so you’ll always be in control of how you’re affected by situations that arise.




Energy determines how you live. If that energy is constantly focused towards self, one will be selfish. If you possess the whole world, but aren’t liberated from self, you’ll remain stuck in a self created bondage.




The noise between your ears is what makes you think the next so called fix will make life perfect, so what searching is about is trying to have things as perfect as you think they need to be instead of accepting the perfection of what is.




Those who are truly awake have their head taken out of the sand and feel the deep suffering of the world, though not in the way of attachment, but arising from the deep root of compassion.




Either you love all or you love none, there’s no such thing as putting conditions on love and only loving some. Unfortunately love is given a lot of lip service in our society, but not much heart service.




The things that pull you into the world are endless, but understand the pull comes from your own mind and even though the worldly things provide the enticing, you alone attach to them.




Separation from yourself occurs when your energy source is made into a story. It becomes my story versus your story and there’s no connection when one comes from a place that causes separation.




In the space without thought is a unity with ourselves, life and all of creation. The more space there is, the more love infiltrates not only our life, but the lives of all beings.




The greatest gift you will ever receive is the gift of today, and even though the Conditioned Mind wants to make it about something else, it’s simply the greatest


Trying to figure out what path is needed to become free from the bondage of self, keeps one locked in the bondage of self. The path of no path leads to liberation because there’s no self looking for it.



Until we become responsible for our own behavior and stop pointing the finger at others, our inner urging to reach will never fully go away and we will always have a need for the next fix.



Restrictions to an abundant life are self created by a mind that’s conditioned to self serve. One’s own mind creates these limits by keeping you attached to the lie the self serving mind is needed for abundance.



Life can only be what it’s made out to be, making it a master piece will only occur when the best possible resources available which are within, are found and are utilized.




When the human brain gets a glimpse of itself as awareness aware of awareness, a tiny temporary window opens where one gets a fleeting glimpse of its own wonder and majesty.



When the mind becomes agitated, if the agitation is to be quieted, the cause of it needs to be identified. An agitated mind can’t do this, so one needs to get off the merry go round if there’s to be quiet.



Vows, pledges, and resolutions aren’t needed when it’s realized what you are giving up (changing) is being done because its causing a bondage that doesn’t allow you to be in harmony with life, yourself, and all beings.




The main dilemma in our society is people are putting their humanness first and are being controlled by their thoughts. When spirituality is put first there’s a connection to the universal heart of love.




When you say you feel a certain way, it’s strictly your own judgement of that moment that produces the label. The moment doesn’t make judgements, it only provides the setting for it to be labeled.



If you’re not looking inward when questions arise, answers aren’t going to be revealed. You’ll just bounce around making up answers which only distract you from looking inward and revealing truth.



Love is the true energy of life. It won’t be denied as its expansion is inevitable because it’s what we are made of. As our heart is unblocked and opens to love, love becomes the energy of existence.



As far as the mind is concerned, if the old isn’t cleared out there won’t be room for anything new to replace it, but it won’t happened until it’s seen there’s a need to replace the old.




Truth is seen when the mind becomes quiet. The thought of truth which is noise, is a created distraction that blocks you from seeing beyond the story that’s conjured up in your head.




Nobody watching honesty means what you do when nobody is looking is the same as what you do when someone is watching. If this isn’t the level of your honesty, it’s because there’s a lack of self awareness.




Existence is based in the energy of love, but this energy is not a preventer of tragedies. It’s simply a place to dwell to get shelter from the so called life storms, and they will come, but one doesn’t have to be overcome by them.



No perspective is wrong, but if you only have one way of seeing things it does limit your view of life and in the process it doesn’t allow you to have any other result except from that perspective.




If you truly loved yourself wounds that need healing would never be produced and because you can only do what you are conditioned to do, there wouldn’t be a need for a forgiveness story.



When the need to reach for something arises it’s because the mind is in bondage to the reaching thought. Until this is seen, one will remain in bondage to the thought that fulfillment is in the next thing reached for.





When truth is uncovered, no longer is the mind blindly listened to because it’s understood you shouldn’t believe everything your mind tells you because most of the time it just isn’t true.



Until one can be with things as they are without seeking an escape that’s thought to provide pleasure, a made up perception will continue its control and unfortunately so will the suffering it causes.



Self investigation takes more courage than most people will ever exhibit. This is because the conditioning in place doesn’t allow it and until life isn’t all about you anymore, your conditioning prevails.




No reaction occurs randomly. If the conditioning in place that allows the reaction to arise isn’t understood, one will blindly react to situations as if they were a puppet on a string.



Love is measured by the way a person behaves and by the way a person treats other people. It’s impossible to act selfishly or in a self serving manner if the base of your life is to love.




A mind that doesn’t love can’t fix itself with self help methods. Only through the quietness of the heart can one be set free from the bondage of self that holds the mind in captivity to trying to fix itself.



If one acts in ways that doesn’t allow there to be cooperation with life, for it to change it’s imperative to know why this is so. Knowing your own mind and doing things that align you with life is what allows this to change.





The illusion that the past or future is a better place then what’s occurring right now creates fear of the present. This fear manifest as needing to reach for something because of the illusion of incompleteness.





When you reach for something to fill a void, it’s used as a protection technique so you don’t have to look inward. The greatest lie you will ever tell yourself is you need something to be complete…




It does seem like what occurs in life causes the arising mind agitations, but this just isn’t so. The agitations that arise are already in place, if they weren’t there’s no way they could ever arise.




Looking within to see if the tools you have in place are reliable allows you to love yourself unconditionally and thus love all beings. The key here is love because that’s what a truly reliable tool produces.




The initial awakening can be compared to a stone on top of a mountain. The slightest push gets it rolling, and it will just keep on building momentum until something (conditioning) gets in the way to stop it.



I Emotions:

Emotions arise when there's attachment to I not to something that occurs, and as long as I is in control, the roller coaster of emotions will continue to take you for a ride...



If there isn’t some sort of quietness in one’s life, the Conditioned Mind will run the show, and although life will be lived because you are alive, it will mostly be so in a state of unconscious suffering.


One of life’s greatest gifts is when we touch another heart because this energy not only touches one heart it touches many hearts, and it’s this transforming energy that makes a real difference.




A peaceful life begins and ends right now. You can be mindful that you’re thinking about the past or future, but you will never actually be there and as long you’re thinking about it, peace will be eluded.




Our human form is used to experience life so we should never deny our humanness, but non attachment to it is the key if one is to truly experience living from a place of love.



If we didn’t carry the burdens of past moments into the present, our accumulative energy would never form burdens and we would be free to live life as it actually occurred.




When the Conditioned Mind is in control, you will have to make up story after story because all you can do is reach into the baggage you are carrying around that’s filled with labels from the past.




When it’s realized how often the same behavior patterns are repeated over and over even to the point of one’s own destruction, it is then that those patterns have the possibility of being changed.



Unconsciousness doesn’t excuse one from the way that they act as one is always accountable for their actions, but who can cast the first stone and hold one responsible for acting the only way possible.





When a person seemingly has an inability to love, it’s because for whatever reason an attachment to “I” is in place. When “I” is let go of, love naturally arises.




How energy transforms is as there’s less thoughts of “I” love naturally arises and as this occurs what’s left is the newness of each moment instead of the familiar view of “I” that only produces suffering.




Waking up doesn’t make you perfect, what it does is it gives you awareness of the “I” imperfections in place, and when one is aware of the harm “I” causes, letting go of its imperfections naturally occurs.



One of the obstacles that’s used to keep you in a state of unconsciousness is grasping, and it’s your own mind that keeps this bondage of “grasping at straws” in place.





The thing about the Conditioned Mind is it makes you unconsciously do things that aren’t beneficial to you or anyone else. This is the epitome of unconsciousness.





One of the reasons it’s so difficult to break free from the Conditioned Mind is because most days start out by picking up where one left off the day before. This is what it feels like to carry around the weight of the world.


There’s only one comparison that matters in life, it’s comparing you with yourself and only to the extent of how much freer you are today as opposed to what held you in bondage yesterday.





There’s one very important piece that most people miss when it comes to living life in the most beneficial way possible and that’s living in the present moment, not in a conceptual way, but in a way that ties it all in.



Because the Conditioned Mind isn’t understood enough it’s very difficult to notice the insights that reveal the cause of suffering, hence without these insights one remains entrapped to “l” wanting things different.




Life has its own intentions and when the mind is quiet one will be in alignment with them. This isn’t to satisfy our made up mind intentions, but strictly for ones that are solely for the betterment of the Universe.




When words are used to try and convince others that a certain way to live is right, it opens the door to conflict. A true testament of any awakening is demonstrated in silence because silence is what one awakens to.




The tools of pushing or pulling are developed to cope with life, this is why life is seemingly full of problems, but whatever arises doesn’t cause the problems, it’s the pushing or pulling that does.




When there’s a need to reach for something because the mind becomes agitated, one is in bondage to that thought. Until this is seen, one will remain in bondage to the thought that peace is in the next thing reached for.



Life will always be as it is regardless of the created story of faith. Faith is strictly used by the Conditioned Mind to provide the fallacy of comfort, but it’s really not needed if one just lives life as it is.




All blind faith means is that you are living life as if you are blindfolded. If you don’t investigate your beliefs, you will blindly be controlled by them as if you were a puppet on a string.




Duality causes inner and Universal division as it creates a you, a me, and them. Whenever this is the way life is viewed there will be separation regardless if there’s a higher or lower self.



The Conditioned Mind will always fight the new, the only reason this is done is because something different is being presented and the Conditioned Mind doesn’t like different.


The greatest injustice to oneself is holding onto opinions that are taken as truth prior to investigating if they are truly so. It’s written “the truth will set you free” not opinions will set you free.




The addiction in our society is to form. Without being led around by form one can truly be joyous and free, but only if it’s seen that the association and attachment to form is a delusion.





The understanding of the flesh won’t stop the world’s hooks from grabbing you, but it just may at times stop you from taking the bait which allows the control of the flesh to dissipate somewhat.




Because everyone has different conditioning, we have the world as it is with just as many versions of truth as there are people, but without quietness none of those versions are true.




The way one acts has to come from somewhere, it doesn’t just randomly happen. Why this isn’t seen by most people is because of all the propaganda that points you to look for your answers out there.




Form any opinion you’d like, but it will never be a benefit to you. As a matter of fact it will be a created burden that not only blocks you from the love that’s in your heart, but also from the heart of all humanity.





What truth is will never be figured out with the mind, but what it isn’t can be examined, so you may never know what truth is, but you will know what it isn’t and when this is known all that’s left is truth.




Regardless of what it is if it’s of the mind it creates bondage. The only way this is broken is by using the body as an anchor as the body is simply always in the present moment.




The attachment to something is what causes suffering not the thing itself. If there wasn’t the need to attach, there wouldn’t be suffering because one would be content with life as it is.



Temptation arises because “I” wants to satisfy some pleasure it’s making you think is needed, and “I” will win out every time until there’s awareness to stay out of harms way.


Wanting life different causes a discontent that’s not there when one is with life as it is. The is the reason there’s an addiction epidemic going on and it’s not going to stop until one can be with life as it is.




The heart only beats in the present moment which is the only place of true existence. It’s where life actually happens and it’s where one transforms without knowledge blocking it.




The unconscious mind creates story after story. Just being with what happens and not resisting it stops the need to create a story of having to arrange life to make it the way you think it should be.




If anything is ever going to change in our world, the conditioned programming will have to change. This will only happen when it’s seen this programming isn’t providing the most beneficial results.




Don’t mind what happens and a story won’t be generated. If you do mind, your energy will be transferred to whatever it is that’s wanted different and hence an attached story will be created.




Love is what will change the world so cultivate love until it’s at the core of how your life is viewed. When this is done you can become the change this world so desperately needs.



You can only think what you think and react as you react because the conditioning in place is in control, and no matter how much you think you choose what you do, there is no choice…





Until “become like little children” is truly understood, the adult conditioning will remain in control as bias, prejudice, hate, and greed. This is the real tragedy of when a child’s life is taken because their innocence is also taken.




Open minded energy allows for objectivity and truth to be seen, and it can remain free flowing and beneficial as long as there isn’t attachment which closes the mind and only allows you to see things one way.




When the mind settles the need to reach for something lessens. In the process the hole of loneliness disappears and it’s simply because an “I” story of a hole isn’t being created…




People have left us maps to help find the treasure within, but if the map points to someone or something out there as the treasure, it’s probably not a true treasure map.




If one is to break free from the Conditioned Mind, the next step in the evolutionary process has to be taken. This is the letting go of all dependencies that are used for one to feel complete.



When there’s attachment and you become the observer, the one who just observes disappears, that is until “I” is let go of, it is then that one can simply observe without labeling the observer.




Every belief that’s created is a story used to provide relief in some way, but if it was that easy one could just go around making up story after story whenever life didn’t go the way it was thought it should be.




Our beliefs manifest in many different ways, mostly as thought formed ideas, and concepts, but at the core of any of them is an attachment to the form of self that doesn’t truly exist.




Although it seems what occurs in life is the cause of one’s arising turmoil, but this is not the case. The turmoil that arises is already in place, if it wasn’t there’s no way it would arise.




As long as there is seeking there will always be seeking and one will remain on the treadmill path exerting all kinds of energy, but not really getting anywhere.



Creative energy comes from the stillness within yourself. When there’s stillness you can truly get in touch with your own creativity and not need the worlds approval for what arises.





In the space between our thoughts our innate love hovers, waiting. When one awakens from being stuck in the thought realm to see this, the door to liberation opens.




There’s no way one will ever fully understand life intellectually so to fill in the gaps answers are made up, but it’s in the space of what arises that one hears what life is saying so answers aren’t needed.




There’s not much life in something that has no flow, and this is exactly what happens when one has a biased view, the free flowing energy is cut off and unfortunately causes suffering.




Make no mistake just because what has a hold of you isn’t seen, it doesn’t mean you aren’t in the grip. What it does mean is the grip has total control and you probably don’t even notice it…



Emotions arising when something happens to a loved one is natural. If one could just be with the arisen emotion without attaching to “I “ you would remain open and an emotional story wouldn’t come into play.




When one is always concerned about getting to a place of peace, life just passes you by. A thought isn’t needed to see this, but it will take a mind that’s settled not to attach to your thoughts.



There are defining moments in life that expose the lies that lead to truth, but this truth doesn’t define who one is, it defines who one isn’t, and once who one isn’t is revealed, what’s left is who one is.




Our answers are always within, one just need to make sure the tools being used to provide them are guiding you in a direction that is the most beneficial to your life.



To accept yourself as you are is such a relief because the only real misery is wanting you to be in some other way. When it’s realized one has only been trying to escape from themselves, there is peace.




Everyone has the potential to look within to discover their own inner magnificence, but what’s needed to have this magnificence revealed is to learn to live with what’s occurring right now.





If life has to be a certain way for it to be okay, it’s as if a heavy weight is being carried around as needing life a certain way creates the burden of having to constantly troubleshoot it.





A purpose for life is only needed by the Conditioned Mind. In the space of stillness everything just arises, and it’s in this space that it becomes clear the purpose of life is to simply live.




Hold onto any label that your Conditioned Mind makes you think is needed, but if the results of these labels aren’t beneficial in all areas of life, maybe the labels that are being held onto need to be let go of…




Until there’s awareness of the Conditioned Mind tricks there will be very little peace, but when there is awareness and the tricks are exposed, they lose their hold and one is naturally at peace.



From infancy we are told we need to add things to our life to enhance it. Until this is seen adding to it will always be, but understand regardless of what you add it won’t enhance life one bit.





If you want the world to change learn how to change yourself, but understand it’s not going to happen by believing in something, it will happen when your own heart opens to connect with Universal Love.




Add anything you’d like to life, but understand the only reason adding is added is because there isn’t contentment with life as it is and you think you have to add to it for it to be complete.




No one is an island regardless of how spiritual they are and this is because the more spiritual one is the more it’s understood there’s only one energy and we are one.




The need to search for a so called spiritual path is there because one wants to feel better and suffer less, but why there’s a search to begin with is because of the attachment to feel better.




Without awareness of the mind becoming agitated in the absence of something to do, the Conditioned Mind will create story after story just so it has something to do.




The Conditioned Mind is devious and causes much suffering. The more it’s allowed to penetrate the inner psyche the more it will make you think the way you are is your fault, but “It’s not your fault”





At the core of the Conditioned Mind is “I” and when “I” is let go of, all the tools that the Conditioned Mind uses fall away along with the substitutions of one thing for another.




There is never a void that isn't created so there is never a true need to rely on anything from the outside of yourself. Until this is understood, one will keep creating a void.

Needing to do something doesn't enhance life because the doing keeps the mind agitated. It may give the appearance of enhancement, but there's no real benefit to one's energy while trying to do.

Nothing that arises inherently has a label, that comes from how the individual perceives the arisen moment and attaches a conditioned label of this or that to what arises...

Not only is to err human, it’s also inevitable. It’s the clinging to our humanness that causes attaching to wanting things different which in turn causes one to cling to their own suffering…




When one isn’t controlled by things from the outside, therein lies your peace, but there isn’t peace because life is the way that it’s wanted, there’s peace because your dynamic energy is focused on life as it is.




The Conditioned Mind creates a lie that when there’s space it needs filling. The heart understands this space as emptiness and until it’s realized it doesn’t need filling, the lie will remain in place.




A person doesn’t wake up because something from the outside shakes them…it occurs because the love in their heart is revealed…everyone has this love because everyone has a heart…



Reaching for something such as a cigarette, donut, candy, getting a tattoo or whatever else is being reached for benefits no one…it’s only done to satisfy a selfish craving…




Live in alignment with Universal Love because the more this is done, the more you can be an instrument to spread that love; not in a way that you think, but in a way the Universe wants it to be…




Regardless if this is agreed with or not, there’s no way around adding to your life as being from selfish energy and until this is seen, the need to add to it will continue even though less is more…




Discipline to see that the mind is always stirred up has to be established if one is to ever experience peace. Mind agitations will arise, how to quiet them is what has to be developed.



Nothing is the whole of anything unless it’s labeled as so, and who does this labeling, but the idea of a me which only exist because of forming a delusional concept.

There's no harmony when the egos energy is running the show and simply put without harmony we have everyone going in different directions trying to attain a certain selfish status...

Peace isn’t something achieved or attained so it’s in doing less that peace arises. Too many people get caught in the thought of trying to find peace when it’s something that’s already within you…



The only obstacle there is to being free is truly looking at yourself and until you do look at you, true freedom is something that will always be out there in the next thing reached for.




It’s the thinking mind that makes one’s own mind a battlefield. It’s the heart that throws out the white flag to surrender, but not to be defeated, it’s done to end the war so the suffering stops.




Truth always arises before a label is applied, but once a label is applied it becomes an interpretation, and because truth can’t be labeled as anything other than truth, it becomes tainted.


There are many different ways that people handle what arises in life, the key to not being controlled by what arises is to understand life isn’t personal and it doesn’t do anything to you…




Thoughts will arise, but they don’t have to control you. If there isn’t awareness of this, your thoughts will blindly be attached to which will lead to them being blindly in control…

All roads that lead to a peaceful life begin and end in the present moment and developing a mindfulness practice will assist in the awakening of being aware of your own presence…




Truth will make a person look inward and as they do all sorts of things will arise, and because of this inward view the mind becomes agitated and a lie is created to avoid the truth…



Just watch as each situation arises in your life and you’ll be the recipient of a peace that passes all understanding. Or not and stay a prisoner to the judging and labeling process of the Conditioned Mind…





Awareness is key in breaking free from the hold of the attachments of the Conditioned Mind, and the only reason the hold is even so is because of the selfish nature that’s at the core of these attachments.




Look down at your feet, regardless of where they’re planted this is your anchor. If it isn’t it’s because the need to reach for something else is blocking you from being anchored in the present moment…




Grace is the difference between being happy, joyous, and free or being stuck in a mundane existence, and if space isn’t created to allow grace to arise, mundane life will be…




Me energy can’t get out of its own way. For the next step in the evolution process to occur, me energy has to be let go. A true transformation can only occur by me energy being absent in one’s daily existence.




As long as there’s conditioning in place, this will dictate the energy of your life. This energy arises and results in as what’s on the surface, but it doesn’t allow you to see what’s truly going on.




Lies created by the Conditioned Mind can’t be fixed with the same conditioning. It’s not that truth has to be known to change this, but the conditioning will have to be understood if the lies are to cease being created…




There’s not much a person can do about the first thought that pops up, but with practice discipline can be developed to watch the distracted thoughts as they arise and are attached to…




The Conditioned Mind is a human dilemma because it leads most in the direction of greed, hate, and delusion. If you can see this in yourself you will not have to look any further because you’ll understand you are already free…



The Conditioned Mind makes you believe answers are needed to exist, but answers aren’t truly needed; the questioning will only be eliminated when there’s the simple acceptance of what’s happening right now.




What is considered the box by society entraps most people to the idea of what others think the box is and unless this can be seen to go beyond it, there will just be blind acceptance of someone else’s idea of the box.




The value of using the body as an anchor for present moment living is it doesn’t make anything up, only the mind does so when the body is used to be present, truth arises; this is beautiful in its simplicity…




Reaching for an object happens because “I” makes this so. Only turning away from the clinging to “I” will result in true freedom and this is because it’s the turning away that provides the letting go.





Understanding delusion is one of the attributes of waking up, but it’s not the delusions of the world that entrap you, it’s the delusions that run your life that hold you in bondage…




Life is not a made up perfection where it has to be the way one thinks it should be. Whatever arises has to be accepted exactly as it is with seeing its perfection regardless of how much it’s desired to be different.





You may not be able to do anything about the state of how things are right now, but you can live in a way that lets your light shine through by just being with what’s here now and doing what’s in front of you…




The Conditioned Mind loves to create problems, until this is seen it will continue to do so even though everything in life is temporary, especially the Conditioned Mind problems that are created…

The energy of the past has so much momentum because of how long it’s been in place. The Conditioned Mind uses that past momentum to process life and until this is realized the present moment will be out of reach.




Humanity’s energy is from the thought realm which attaches you to the world. As long as one is controlled by their thoughts, majestic energy can’t be primary regardless of the beliefs or concepts being held onto.




Look beyond the shallowness of your thoughts and how they’re adhered to. It will be beyond this adherence that one’s true self emerges, if not you will remain confined to your own shallowness.




There’s always a core energy where life is basically lived from and this determines if the energy emitted to humanity is truly from love or from the self serving way one thinks things should be.




Life will always be life and it will always be as it is, but you don’t have to be stuck in a mind state where you’re not mindfully aware of what’s actually happening; awareness aware of awareness…




When a person says I want this or that, initially it’s a view from the mind. For it to become a view of the heart, I and want have to be let go of so all you are left with is space.




What you think an awakening is actually blocks you from it…when thoughts are strung together they form a story…and a story is simply that…and just because you think it…that doesn’t mean it’s the truth…




If you can truly get beyond the story of needing a purpose to life and just be in the stillness of the moment, your purpose to life and to humanity will be beyond anything you could make up as being needed.




When your focus is aligned with love, there’s a deep seeded love for all beings, not because it’s wanted, but because this is simply the way love rolls when one’s focus is aligned with love.




Emotional attachment is contingent on how much one is conditioned to think about themselves and it’s this constant thinking of “I” that doesn’t really provide much of a benefit.




No emotion arises on its own. Many things provide the spark for an emotion, but it’s always “I” energy that is at the core. No matter what happens an emotion can’t arise independent of ”I”.





If you can develop some awareness of inner stillness, the object perspective will have less control as your mind agitations also quiet. Without these agitations the need to reach for an object never arises…

If the noise in the head controls your life, it won’t stop because you have a belief in some power outside of you. Beliefs hinder the mind’s settling because they create a distraction to the space of presence…




When your not looking to derive pleasure from an arisen want, the want loses its distracting grip, and without being controlled by want you’re able to be with what’s actually in front of you.



Life is continuous until the day that it’s not. It’s broken up into fragments because of the attachment to self. Without this attachment, life simply unfolds as it merges into itself.



Check what is said or what’s written before attaching onto the story “I” thinks it needs. Do it with everything heard or read and in this space of checking you will find not only freedom, but also truth…

It’s your life and as easy as it may be to follow someone else’s way, if they didn’t live the life that you’re leading their tools just may not be the tools for living the life you live…



Many have a belief that God is love, but if this is truly investigated it may be revealed that although God may need the story of love to exist, love doesn’t need the story of God to exist…


If you keep allowing the past to control the present the past will be where you live your life. Why this is unfortunate is because all of the emotional pain of the past will also be carried into the present…



The inner discontent that keeps you from your peace has nothing to do with life, it’s a creation of your own mind and that’s what causes the discontent which makes you believe you are not at peace…

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
