Andrew Martin ~ If We Lived By These 10 Great Quotes The World Would Change

BuddhaPeaceWithinThere appears to be much conflict, suffering and violence occurring in the world at the moment. While propaganda plays a part in geopolitics and government agendas and as corporations pit humanity and the environment against the economy, we have to question, what is the purpose and end game of creating such suffering and degradation?

We must ask ourselves, what is it all for? Why do countries and governments continue to provoke, massage and espouse such messages of separation? What is with this perverse agenda of domination, manipulation and control? Who wins in the end? It seems strange when we have access to so much knowledge and collective wisdom that there continues to be such suffering, conflict and ignorance.

While I don’t have the answers I can only turn to those who have gone before us to give some insight into what a world of harmony, love and compassion looks like.


1 – ” Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”. – Albert Einstein

2 – “A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.” – Mahatma Gandhi

3 – “In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.” – Lao Tzu

Paul Rosenberg ~ We Have Undervalued Ourselves

“Whenever it is that we come to understand ourselves and the true nature of the world, doing the right thing will cease being a burden. We will do the right thing simply because any other action would be stupid.” P Rosenberg

oceanWaterBoyGrowing up, I heard lots of complaints from parents and teachers about children being conceited, proud, and arrogant. Looking back, it seems to me that most of these complaints were related to a failure to obey. We did have one or two kids who were arrogant jerks, but the rest of us received the same comments they did.

But whatever motivated the adults of my youth, they were mostly wrong – it’s not our overvaluation of ourselves that is the real problem; it’s our undervaluation.

Here is a passage from G.K. Chesterton’s The Defendant that makes this argument:

There runs a strange law through the length of human history — that men are continually tending to undervalue their environment, to undervalue their happiness, to undervalue themselves. The great sin of mankind, the sin typified by the fall of Adam, is the tendency, not towards pride, but towards this weird and horrible humility.

I think Chesterton was entirely correct, and I think we have all been surrounded by, and influenced by, a “weird and horrible humility.”

Most of us, most of the time, fear making errors, think about our failures and deficits, and live in a sea of guilt. Not only is this dark self-image unnecessary, but it degrades us and is built upon falsehoods.

Jamye Price ~ Knowing All Is Well

“Your clarity of focus, your clarity of Love, your clarity of choice and holding your empowerment of give/take with another is your Free Movement with Life.” ~J Price

rp_jamyePrice.jpgDear Being, as you create you change the vibrational balance upon Earth.  We hear the call of frustration, confusion and sometimes even defeat as the will of the collective, the will of the present does not seem to cooperate with the future you want to create now.  You are a vital part of Life; honored, cherished and respected as the Creator that you are. You are supported and sustained by the engine of Life and this engine is in continual motion beyond your concept of Time.  Yet Time has given its flow to you, it interweaves with you and allows your focus to permeate its flow and form.  It responds, allows and holds you on a track of movement, confined to day and night, confined to a collective clock.  Your perception and participation with this engine of Life melds its flow into form.  You create.  You create with the collective of Life, with the rules of Life.  Continue reading

Gillian Macbeth Louthan ~ Dimensional Potential

“You have the ability to create exactly what you desire by holding it in focus, in certainty, and in knowing. The minute you give up, it exits your world and enters another where it lives happily ever after.” ~G Macbeth Louthan

oracle_waterfallThis past year, thought and manifestation accelerated to a point in time and space that quickened all outcomes. outcomes that exceeded your expectations and perceptions. The path that you have taken in the past has been predictable. Your reactions are predictable. Your outbursts are predictable. You have followed the same emotional pathway and patterning that you always have the ground is worn where you have walked back and forth in your mind.

In this time of numerous celestial alignments, and dimensional potential – we ask you not to take the same route that you have always taken. Move past the borders that once held you as a captive audience. Always keeping you in a very small theater squared away in the pegs of the past. You are much more than you have been able to understand. Each of you stands guard at the fulcrum of your future. A place where you can see viewing your present, past, and a probable future. As soon as one views their future they change it, it is universal law.

Each and every thought that you have ever had exists somewhere in synchronized time. Each and every desire, want, need, and prayer has been fulfilled and lives ‘somewhere in time’. Thoughts and manifestations are not wasted. They are not tossed aside like garbage. They are recycled actively. In some parallel existence of the time/space continuum you are living all of your dreams. In another one, you are living your perfect body shape. In another one, you are living your perfect partner or your perfect health. Each thought either stays in the Now or exits to another plane of existence. The doorway to that exit is opened and closed by your own thinking.
When you desire a certain outcome, it begins to grow within your own energy field. If you fluctuate from that thought with doubt, with fear on any level – then it ‘exits’ the earth experience and enters another probable universe where you also exist. Continue reading

Ida Lawrence ~ The Anatomy Of Doubt

SorenDreier  May 23 2014

DoubtYou are the most valuable project of your life.” Sifu Florin Szondi

For years I would have disagreed with that statement. I would have asserted that it was never about the ‘project’ of me… it was about justice, and righting wrongs, and serving the higher good, and about the truth coming to light. Now comes the realization that there is a single end result of all projects. Every effort I made, everything I was involved in, served, ultimately, to improve me.

The kingdom is within, as we all know, or ought to know, since we’ve been told in oh so many ways. All projects have to do with the kingdom.

We humans have many viewpoints about the improvement of Self. Your truth, my truth, his truth, her truth, the truth… is there any way of getting a grasp on what we’re all looking at? Some months ago I posted an article mentioning the value of telling the truth. I got a response back arguing that there is no ‘the truth’ – that all truth is relative… all we have is ‘our truth’.

All truth is relative? There is no such a thing as ‘The Truth’? Well one would think there is pure information and that would be The Truth. It is a mathematical universe that we are a part of; pure energy, pure light, not reliant on any human’s subjective interpretation. So of course there is The Truth, and that is The Love as well.

Thanks, Nina. Superb article!  ~g

The nature of life.

Imagine that you exist in vast space surrounded by the very fabric of life in all directions around you. Your experience of people and objects around you are made visible (extracted and weaved from the fabric of life) by your own genetic patterning/programming, which is destined to create thoughtforms that you project onto people and objects around you, so that you can have a relationship with yourself based upon your own interpretation. Your body/mind mechanism is the vehicle you, as awareness, inhabit to create various experiences in physical form. It is only possible to have experiences in the illusion of separation, so let us make the most of it.

This is a time when we must all address our own shadow patterns, being wonderfully displayed by other people in our lives. It is of utmost importance that you trust your authentic responses in a given situation. As Eckhart Tolle nicely puts it – you do always have three choices available to you: You can complain, accept or act. Continue reading

Owen K Waters ~ The Ultimate Meditation

SpiritualDynamics  May 18 2014

beautifulFlowerPeace can sometimes be so far away, and inner bliss… even farther away.

Take the time now to spend some real quality time by going within. Find that sense of peace that lies within. Visit the place where inner bliss dwells and waits patiently for your return.

Let yourself unwind and compose yourself for a few precious moments of peace. Remember that your mind is much more far-reaching than your physical brain. Your mind, as consciousness, is nonphysical, while your brain is just the physical translator of your consciousness.

Your mind, therefore, always has the ability to tell your brain;

“Shsh! It’s meditation time!”

Focus your mind away from the clutter of day-to-day living and turn your attention inwards to the peaceful core of your inner being. Then think of the deepest possible state of consciousness.

And what could that state be?

It is the state of consciousness known as Infinite Being. The wordInfinite reflects the idea of ultimate, while the word Being refers to a state of awareness, rather than a doing activity. Infinite Being is infinite consciousness without a focus upon any specific activity.

Infinite Being doesn’t have to do anything, it already is everything.

It is important to appreciate that the state of Infinite Being is not “out there” somewhere external to us. Infinite Being encompasses all consciousness, including all manifestation. We are that consciousness, as is everything else in existence.

Enlightened Beings ~ Practice Letting Everything Be As It Is

Jafree Ozwald May 14 2014

“The essence of saintliness is total acceptance of the present moment, harmony with things as they happen.” ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

lightIn this world, there are many people searching for enlightenment, and then there are those who will never look for it throughout their entire life. There are also those who work hard for their money, desperately trying to get out of the rat race, and then there are those who are totally content with their humble income and the few possessions they have. There are beings who were born into this world this morning, breathing their first breath of air, and then there are those who just had their last breath of life 2 minutes ago. This world allows for such a rich diversity of people to exist here, allowing everyone to have their own unique experience of life. The Universe allows you to play whatever role you want to play. Life accepts and celebrates your existence exactly the way you are, and when you return this acceptance for life then everything changes in a miraculous way.

No matter what your habits, karmic pattern, or life long addiction, you always have the choice to be free. This freedom however is not a freedom from something or for something. True freedom is letting and allowing everything be exactly as it is. This means choosing to be at peace with yourself just the way you are, the world as it is right now, and your parents, sister, brother, neighbor and in-laws as they are right now. When you discover that total acceptance equals outrageous inner peace, you’ll never go back again. Yes, you will become addicted to “letting everything be as it is” and have even more inspiration the next day to be that divinely motivated environmentalist who cleans up our world.

“Absence of consciousness is ego. Whenever the ego is absent, God is present.” ~Osho
