Getting What we Desire in Life


This blog is the result of my own thoughts combined with those of an unknown author. The thoughts are not all mine, although I do agree with them and wish to thank the original author  for most of the content.

I recently finished reading,”The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown, author of the DaVinci Code. A fascinating book in it’s own right. The book finally brought out in the last chapter what life is all about. It fully explains how we can achieve all we want and need in life.

And as is true with most profound discoveries, the answer is so simple and easy to discover it is overlooked by almost everyone,and understood by even fewer people.

We always assume that all profound and great truths need to be complicated and hard to comprehend, hidden from all but the elite. Most often, truth is right under our nose and in plain sight, and very often, as my mother would always say,” if it was a snake, it would bite you”.

The truth is that the Universe has been answering your wants and desires all  your life, but you cannot receive the correct answers unless you are aware.  Be aware of everything around you, because you are receiving the answers to your questions in every moment of the day.  The channels those answers can come through are varied and unlimited.  They can be delivered in the form of a newspaper headline that attracts your attention, or overhearing someone speaking, or a song on the radio, or signage on a truck passing by, or receiving a sudden inspiration. All we need to do is remember to remember, and become aware!

The rest is easy.

I have found on my own life and in others’ lives that we do not think well of ourselves or love ourselves completely.  To not love ourselves can keep what we want from us. By not loving ourselves, we are literally pushing what we desire  away from us.

We have been conditioned by society and those around us too often expect the worse, and even some think we need to repay all karma before we can deserve all the good that should be available to us. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We could never repay all the supposedly “bad” karma we have built up over the past. Very often, while paying off one karmic debt, other debt is accumulated, it can be an endless cycle. We need to remember as we are experiencing life, others are also interacting with us and learning their own life lessons.

The key to repaying our karmic debts, is not to just repay it, but to forgive ourselves and others in the process. Because of our so-called bad karma, others have learned as well.

reality

We each create our own reality

Everything we want, whatever it may be, is motivated by love regardless of if we realize it or not. It is to experience the feelings of love  in having those things–youth, money, the perfect person, job, body, or health.  To attract the things we love we must transmit love, and those things will appear immediately.

The catch is, to transmit the highest frequency of love, you must love yourself, and that can be difficult for many.  If you focus on the outside and what you see now, you  trip yourself up, because what you see and feel about you now is the result of what you have thought in the past.  

To love yourself fully, you must focus on a new dimension of You.  You must focus on the “Golden Source” inside of You.  Take a moment and sit still.  Focus on feeling the soul, or life presence located near the heart chakra.  As you focus on the presence within, it will begin to reveal itself to You.  It is a feeling of pure love and bliss, and it is perfection.  That presence is the perfection of You.  That presence is the real You.  As you focus on that presence, as you feel, love, and praise that presence, you will love yourself fully, quite possibly for the first time in your life.

Any time you look at yourself with critical eyes, switch your focus immediately to the presence within, and its perfection will reveal itself to You.  As you do this, all imperfections that have manifested in your life will dissolve, because imperfections cannot exist in the light of this presence.  Whether you want to regain perfect eyesight, dissolve disease and restore well-being, turn poverty into abundance, reverse aging and degeneration, or eradicate any negativity, focus on and love the presence within you and perfection will manifest.

The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete;

the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than

perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease

Our Biggest Fear


Think back for a moment , back to the times in your life when you experienced fear. Think about the things you fear the most.

Was it a monster in the closet when you were four? Was the possibility of losing a job when you were an adult and had a family to support, or losing your life in an accident or some serious disease?

There is some thing you fear even more. If you are an average human , the one thing you fear the most. This is what is holding you back from achieving your highest potential in life.

You fear being successful. You fear you are inadequate and undeserving. You have nurtured this fear through many lifetimes and have come to enjoy the feeling it brings, as well as the excuse it offers , you have fallen in love with the emotion.

It is far easier to find an excuse for not succeeding and let someone else take responsibility for your life, than it is to  assume full responsibility for your life and admit there are no excuses.

By feeling inadequate, you are given a reason to not succeed. In your subsconscious mind you have convinced yourself you don’t deserve success, and you fear what success will do to the life you lead. The life you have become comfortable with.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond what we can imagine. That is what frightens us. Realizing we are that powerful, we nullify any excuse we can conjure up, and realize that there isn’t anyone responsible for our life but us.

By discovering how powerful we may be frightens us. Often times we think we may be treading on God’s territory, maybe becoming like him or taking his place. We become afraid he will be mad and bring his vengeance down upon us and make bad things happen, maybe turn us into a pillar of salt.

This could not be farther from the truth, God wants us to be powerful. Our mission on earth is to discover the power within, our God Force. We were born to manifest our glory, as we do, others are able to manifest their highest good also.

As we travel through life, we create what we experience, either consciously or subconsciously. The older we get, the more we realize that what we have desired, we have received. Many times it takes a lot of soul searching to come to this realization.

The next step is to realize we can consciously control our reality and future by our thoughts. Once we learn to control our destiny, we move above karma and are free to continue our soul growth in a more positive way.

No excuses.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race, what happens after death, the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous  country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t  record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time. Hence my book is short on references, but long on experience, I hope you understand.

My books are available in both Hard Copy and eBook format.

Uluru, To the Top!


Uluru, To The Top!

Ayres Rock, Northern Territory, Australia

As the “Rock” came into sight, I began feeling the energy from this ancient monolith, which was formed from a featureless landscape during the Tjukurpa, or creation.  As the bus approached Uluru, I began to wonder what adventure awaited me.

YOUR FAVORITE AUSSIE ONLINE STORE

The “Rock” became a very impressive sight, rising from the floor of the outback. It was the only object to be seen for miles!

To Aborigines, Uluru is a Cathedral and though the outside form is visible, the underlying spiritual concepts are not a matter of public record. It is a living reminder of the Dream time struggle. The stories which relate to every aspect of its extraordinary form carry clear moral codes, good prevailing over evil. The spiritual over the physical, the importance of hospitality and the maintenance of the law.

If I was to climb this monolith, it would be very difficult,  my right arm  was still very weak from a  motorcycle accident three months earlier. The way to the top was very steep and the only way was to pull oneself up by a large chain that had been provided.  I almost quit climbing twice.

I had to do it, several months earlier I had felt the need  to climb to the top and find a man-sized pit surrounded by three circular ones,  this was one of the reasons I had come to the Land of Oz.

Intuition had  told me to leave my forty pounds of camera equipment in the bus, I didn’t do it, the reason became apparent, myself and some of the other photographers had extreme difficulty. Our light meters would not give a correct reading. After I had returned home and had the slides developed, they were all black! Whatever energy that emits from this shrine had played havoc with the electronics in our cameras. I encountered the same problem in Egypt, as I had to replace some of the electronics  in my camera after trying to photograph the step pyramid.

Arriving at the top I immediately found the pit and three circles that had been carved into the stone many ages ago.
As I Lay in the pit I could only imagine what ancient ceremonies had taken place here.

It was very beautiful, standing on top of this ancient landmark, with the Australian plain stretching out before me , I could see forever.

After several minutes of contemplating the wonder of being  in this great place, it was time to start the trip down the side of the “rock”. The trip down was a lot easier, as the old saying goes, it’s all downhill from here.

By the time everyone reached the bus it was nearing sunset, so we raced to get a photo of Uluru as the sun sat behind us. As the sun raced down, the sky changes  from blue to orange and back to purple, the color fading as darkness descended upon us.

Time to eat!! Time for a tinnie (can of beer), our dinner of steak, shrimp, beans and potato was being prepared on the barbie! It doesn’t get any better than this!!

The weather was turning cold, we were headed for a record low of twenty degrees F, it would be a long night with only my  light jacket and an uninsulated swag to sleep in!!

The effects of the tinnies and long necks were being felt, three o’clock in the morning and it was time for a bathroom call, freezing, I made the long trip to the latrine, being chilled to the bone, there would be no sleep the rest of the night.

The Bashful Country Boy flies to Lanzarote


Written by : The Bashful Country Boy
While flying  high above the earth and its problems, I realize this illusion makes problems
smaller than I am, putting them in the proper perspective, high above the earth I am bigger and semi-detached from the earth and its problems.

 YOUR FAVORITE CANARY ISLANDS STORE

I always enjoy looking out the window as we fly, it seems as if there is always something to see.   Half way into the flight I noticed a crack on the wing, after watching for a while, I realized  that it hadn’t gotten any worse,  I decided there wasn’t any use saying  anything, there is no place to land in the middle of the ocean anyway.
Upon arriving in Madrid, I immediately exchanged my US dollars for the Spanish Peso. I inquired as to whether this money would be good in the Canary Islands, the young girl
replied,” Yes we still own the Canary Islands.” Just the answer I needed after being up all night!
That’s what I get for asking a dumb question
.
My connecting flight to Lanzarote didn’t leave for six hours. It had been a long flight and since I wasn’t able to sleep watching that crack in the wing, I decided  the best thing I could do was grab some shut eye on the unoccupied bench in the airport, I surely wouldn’t oversleep on that hard bench. Learning long ago that my camera bag would make a good pillow it was time to  assume a horizontal positioned  for a long, deserved nap.
Next stop, Lanzarote.
