So let’s play with our minds, lets play with what we call reality, this 3rd dimension we all live in. Well we don’t really, our bodies do and hence our brains that reside within our bodies.
It is one of the big questions that science has no answer for…so far.
“What is the relationship between the mind and the brain especially regarding conscious experience?” (Ref:The Buddha’s Brain, Rick Hanson Ph.D)
When I ask people do they exist? they look at me like I am an idiot. “Of course I exist – here I am” Where? I ask, “I am in my body, I am this separate self, a human body, separate from all others.”
Where are You in your body? Is my next question. Most will say “I am in my head, my brain”. Oh really?
If we inquire more deeply we can pull those beliefs apart. You are the one that creates your reality, and that your body and brain create what you, the mind, hold in consciousness.
If you have beliefs that you are separate and in control of your life then these beliefs need to be shaken. We are destroying ourselves and the environment because of our beliefs that we are separate from the rest of life and somehow in control.
Here is an example of how you depend on your connection with nature.
What are one of the first things you do in the morning before you get dressed to go out? You check the weather, to know the temperature, because you have to dress accordingly to maintain a healthy body temperature. We all know instinctively that maintaining the right body temperature is very important. So the weather has a direct effect on the body and your mind.
So our minds are separate from the body but also interdependent with the body and the outer environment down here in this third dimensional reality. The body/brain is really a space suit with a powerful inboard computer. Continue reading
We are officially crazy, well at least 50% of us are.
Have you seen the ad during mental health week, on the ABC TV that said “1 in 2 Australians will suffer from mental illness during their life time?” It only lasted about a week before it was taken off.
Who in hell decided this percentage? Was it someone who is supposed to be sane? or did they have a committee of ‘learned people’ who decided on who has mental problems and who doesn’t. Remember a camel is a horse designed by a committee.
If 1 in 2 of all Australians suffer from mental illness, then logic would dictate that half the committee have a problem, that’s 1 in every 2 psychologists, doctors, psychiatrists, politicians, government officials, you name the professions and half the people you talk to are crazy, that’s if your not the one.
I understand the ad was to promote ‘Mental Health Week’. It is designed to help people reach out, seek help and bring awareness to the issues. I guess they are hoping people who are mentally unbalanced will seek help if they have a mental problem, but then who are they going to ask for help at least half of who they ask will also be looking for help.
These type of statistics are a joke; they send the wrong message out. Imagine you are a teenager sitting at home watching this ad – do you look at your parents and wonder which one is crazy or do you think you might be the one?
I believe we are all insane. I don’t ‘think’ 50% have a mental problem. I believe 99% of us have one. Just take a quick look at the world we live in. We have pretty much in my lifetime screwed up every part of this planet. Our quality of life is being slowly eroded away. Continue reading

here is a gentle loving meditation that I often use in my meditation classes. It is a graceful and loving way to connect with the Divine Presence.
Opening the Heart field with the Golden light of love.
This guided meditation may be done either sitting up or lying down. It can be done within 10 minutes if you so wish. You may record it, if you have no one to take you through the process. It can have a profound effect on reconnecting you to your own personal sense of the Divine. Blessings and loving kindness to all beings.
We begin by taking some gentle breaths in and slowly out. With each breath out we let go of the old tired energy/qi. And with each breath in we give ourselves permission to relax, let go and accept all that is.
Let the breath take you deeper and deeper as you give yourself permission to let go and relax. Feel this wave of relaxation move from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.
Each breath gives you permission to relax, unwind, let go and let be.
With your next breath in start to see or experience a golden ball of light floating above your head, a glowing sun of beauty and brilliance. This bright light flows from the core of all existence. It is the center of the entire universe, sparkling gold.
Feel this light entering you mind and filling each cell with this golden light. Each cell starts to radiate this light; each cell has a smile on its face. This light is the light of Divine joy, happiness, love and profound inner peace.
As this ball of light fills the mind and nervous system it begins its journey down into the heart. As it slowly descends it relaxes every part of the body that becomes covered in its brilliant light.
Each breath in brings the light to the spiritual heart and each breath out releases the blocks that in the past would have been holding this light from entering.
With your next breath in, see and feel the golden light fully entering the spiritual heart. The light fully embraces all aspects of the Divine heart field of love, compassion and light.
You can feel the light in the heart radiate out into every cell. The blood cells carry this wonderful light out into every organ, muscle, nerve fiber in the body/mind complex. The breath continues to draw in this cosmic light and release any old tired stuck areas.
As your body is filled with this golden light you feel yourself becoming lighter and lighter. You are lifting up, floating free and starting to walk on a golden arch that leads to a huge circle of light at the edge of the Universe.
This circle of white light calls you and as you move towards it, it also moves towards you. The light radiates out filling the whole universe and everything within it. You are filled with a loving, peaceful joyous light and you are able to immerse yourself into this Divine presence.
So for a few moments allow yourself to just sink into this living loving presence. This is the heart of the Divine. This is where all healing can occur, where all peace resides. In this brilliant presence you are able to fully rest knowing you are held and lovingly support by the Divine indwelling Presence.
You are in the heart of Divine Presence and Presence is within your heart
You and the Divine are One.
When you are ready to come back just take a deep breath, count to 3, open your eyes, be wide awake, refreshed, renew and reconnected.
I have been meditating for over 40 years. In fact I am addicted to sitting still for an hour and completely letting go into the moment. It brings me great peace and a quiet mind.
I first started meditating because I had gone through a messy divorce (emotionally) and I wanted to get rid of the suffering and pain I was feeling. I started with the simple technique of watching my breath and allowing the pain to surface. It was very uncomfortable in the beginning to just “let it be” but the more I breathed into my pain the more it dissolved and the lightness of peace appeared.
I recognised that all my suffering was from my busy mind. My thoughts kept going over the past trying to get rid of the pain but that just seemed to cause more pain.
In Ancient Chinese wisdom of the Tao, it says that “from the One(ness) comes the two (yin/yang) and from the two comes the three and from the three comes the 10 thousand things.” This is a description of how our minds create the world.
Quantum science now tells us that it is our thoughts that create the 3rd dimension, our world is made up of our thoughts, what they call our ‘personal perceptual bias’.
At 11 billion plus thoughts a second (right brain) we are creating our reality in the torsion field of our total consciousness. And only 7 to 12 thoughts a second are being picked up by our conscious linear thinking left brain. Continue reading
How do you feel when you give?
Today’s blog is a follow on from my last entry on ‘money as a spiritual path.’Let us have some fun and talk about ‘giving money away’. “Ohh no! he is going to use the G word.” How do you feel when you give money away?
In the act of giving there are so many spiritual lessons to learn. This is where the energy of money can really play with your ego mind. It is also the place that really shows you how well you trust, whether you believe in a higher power to look after you or not. This is where your fears of lack show up and where your judgements of the rich and poor surface.
I have had many lessons over the years in giving. I have attended prosperity classes, read more books that I can count and have endeavored to place into practice whatever resonated with me. The one lesson that I always found that worked the best is the act of giving, I always come back to it as a major technique for prosperity. This lesson has been reinforced within my psych and heart time and time again.
Only recently I have returned to ‘consciously’ giving once more. Over the last 2 years I have been utlising my savings. I had put aside some money from a house sale, and have taken the time to relax and focus on my spiritual transformation, a sort of semi retirement. Continue reading
