What is the real purpose of meditation?

Meditation is something that has been around forever and yet there is still there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about the purpose of meditation. It’s possible that people meditate for different reasons and with a desire to achieve different results, however, meditation is primarily a doorway to the ‘expanded version of OURSELF’ and all the the possibilities that this realization imparts upon us. It is through meditation that we can connect to the part of us that is the creator of the circumstances of our lives. In doing so, we can take back control of our circumstances and

Do you want to help make the world a better place?

Do you want to help make the world a better place?

As individuals, we may think that what we do has little effect in the greater scheme of things. However, this is not true. The reality is that we are ALL actively co-creating our environment with every thought we have and every action we take, ALL OF THE TIME. So, if we are a positive person most of the time, when our energy is combined with the energies of all others, we will have an uplifting effect on the greater environment. The opposite is also true. Negative energies will combine with the collective consciousness and will lower the overall vibration of

Why are so many people suffering?

Why are so many people suffering?

Looking around it is obvious that there is a lot of misery in the world. It is easy to believe that we are definitely not living in an ‘Enlightened’ or ‘Golden’ age. We are all born into the conditions of this age and are therefore subject to the energy that is prevalent around us. Currently, there is widespread financial hardship, ongoing conflict within and between countries, and the ever-present threat of ‘global warming’ which we are told will destroy humankind and the beautiful Earth as well. When taking all the above issues, and many more, into account you could say

Why am I alive: Is there some grand purpose to my life?

Why are we here on this beautiful Earth at this time in history? Is there a purpose to my life? And what should I be doing with my time? Such big questions. However, have you ever considered that maybe, just maybe, life is not meant to be understood? Maybe we can just experience life for what it is- a series of events that continue to occur. Stuff is happening, has always been happening and will continue to happen, whether you and I are here to witness it, participate in it, or not! Do you know what that means for you

Are you living the life you want? Or are your beliefs limiting you to a second-rate life experience?

Are you living the life you want? Or are your beliefs limiting you to a second-rate life experience?

The reality, that we as individuals see, is a very small portion of all that is happening around us. It is shaped by our own personal experiences, perceptual habits, and memories. In a complete scene of any moment in time, anywhere, we will choose to perceive and retain a limited amount of information which will be different from others standing right next to us. And what we perceive actually amounts to us making guesses about it- and our mind filling in the blanks to create a story around it. Our story will be different to everyone else’s story but there

What is the path to true happiness? Buying everything I want is not making me happy. Am I missing the real secret to happiness?

What is the path to true happiness? Buying everything I want is not making me happy. Am I missing the real secret to happiness?

To briefly recap some of the content of my previous posts so that this one makes more sense: We enter this world with nothing, and we will leave it with nothing. Most people as they grow take on the beliefs of those closest to them and end up living similar lives unless they are able to change their subconscious beliefs. Life does not need to be this way! More empowering choices have always been, and are still available to every one of us. If we seek out information and experiences that will empower us, we will create a better future
