Balance: Day 4 – Lessen The Sway Of Cray – Step Out Of The Story And Into The Now

Okay to recap: here’s a brief list of the ways we block ourselves from seeing or feeling the natural balance that exists all around us;

  • Condemnation
    • Seeking blame of others to offset our guilt
  • Flow of Energy: We are both our good and bad days
    • Trying to deny the lows has us seeking their eradication
  • Our need to know who we are
    • As viewed by others or valued by ourselves
    • Blocks us from just being who we’re meant to become
  • Our desire to avoid being viewed as anything other than perfect
    • Distancing and separating ourselves from aspects of human nature
    • Leads to hatred and anger whenever we’re associated with groups that  stereotypically  reflect the aspect we’re trying to deny exist in us

I’ll wrap it up with today’s post. Continue reading “Balance: Day 4 – Lessen The Sway Of Cray – Step Out Of The Story And Into The Now”

Balance: Day 3 – The Beautiful Balance Of Diversity – And The Bonds Of Perfectionism That Attempt To Dismiss It

In yesterday’s post I covered how our identification with who we are blocks us from feeling the balance all around us.

Today I want to go into how our desire to align with what we are blocks us in a very similar fashion by seeking to deny the aspects of ourselves that we wish to not be.

Also, I’ll be delving into how this leads us to impose an impossible sense of perfectionism within which leads to oppression without. Continue reading “Balance: Day 3 – The Beautiful Balance Of Diversity – And The Bonds Of Perfectionism That Attempt To Dismiss It”

Balance: Day 2 – Leaving The Orchard – An Apple’s [Long] Tale Of Letting Go

Day two of the series on Balance.

Just in case you missed yesterday (or I wasn’t 100% clear on the overall intention);

My hope is to gently introduce how we all tend to step out of alignment with the world around us as we focus more on being right, moral, or just; rather than simply seeking acceptance of the state of balance that surrounds us at all times.

Balance As A Way Of Life – A Series On Learning To Let Go Through Seeking Our Source Code

In yesterday’s post I spoke to the understanding that our cultural need for judgement and condemnation is one of the major contributing factors of our collective suffering and unconsciousness.

It was brought to my attention that the post might have seemed a bit like an amalgam of several different insights (much obliged, even though my school project made it so we couldn’t discuss it fully, Thanks as usual Marquise!).

So, I’ve decided to turn this into a series surrounding conceptualization and internalization of the notion of balance in a much more complete way.

Part One;

The Cognitive Reasoning Of The Universe And Our Personal Relationship With It

One Nation – Seen Yet Invisible And Illusive Beyond Measure

It’s incredible to me how filled with choices this life is, everyday.

Even more amazing is how there seems to be a single choice that’s capable of delivering the largest impact on our lives and equally able to go completely unnoticed at the point at which we actually render a decision…

Would you agree nearly all of us would like to believe we possess true power, that we are the masters of our domain, true creators of our own fate, and capable of materializing any one of the innumerable ideas bouncing around in our heads the moment we render a verdict as to which of them actually originated from within us versus being the result of some sort of conditioning?

Victory Over Villainy – First Steps Toward Expelling The Victim Mentality

  • “Can you believe people actually get away with that?!”
  • “There needs to be better laws in place to protect us from this evil [entity] that seeks to rid us of our freedoms and take away our [noun]”
  • “How can anyone deal with such tyranny?”

Any of that sound familiar?

If you’ve spent anytime on social media, it should.  Continue reading “Victory Over Villainy – First Steps Toward Expelling The Victim Mentality”

A Sandcastle’s Perspective On Life – Before The Waves Call Us Home

kids laughing next to a treeWhen was the last time you slowed down long enough to listen to the wind blow through the trees or appreciate the laughter of a child as if it was the first time you ever heard such a melodious sound?

Why is it so easy to get so caught up in all the other things?

It was early along on my recent path that a wonderful woman, whom I paid to dole out sage advice, told me that “no relationship lasts forever”. Continue reading “A Sandcastle’s Perspective On Life – Before The Waves Call Us Home”
