Humans are innately emotional. We’re VERY emotional beings: perhaps the most emotional creature we know of! But are we really ‘TOO EMOTIONAL’? Many believe that ‘being emotional’ is a handicap to rational functioning. Many believe that emotions cause intolerance & even conflict on Earth. They have convinced us to suppress & downplay our feelings. This has been a subtle part of our education & social conditioning. Was this approach all wrong? Have we unwittingly diminished & d
In the previous Blog post (Part 5 of this ‘All About Nothing’ series), we laid out the case for a ‘Universal Mind’. We explained this Universal Mind would be akin to a ‘computer neural network’ that computer scientists are familiar with. These systems have enormous computing power, predictive capacity & artificial intelligence. You might want to read more about this in the previous blog of this series on the UltimateTest.org website. A quantum computer neural network would be
What is Truth? Where does Truth reside? This enquiry might at first seem esoteric or strange. But ‘this understanding’ is very important! So, hang in there! Let’s first establish what we mean by this ‘Truth’ with a capital ‘T’. What we’re talking about is a fixed Reality, a permanent reference point. ‘The Truth’ means having a TRUE REALITY & true reference point! One that is precise, permanent & universal? One that would likely apply everywhere in the entire Cosmos… That’s a
The Truth can be SO SIMPLE, but NOT always SO EASY to accept. It can be quite a shock! In this discussion we will present ONE MAJOR TRUTH: It concerns WHO WE REALLY ARE! Do you think you really know? Preliminary warning & advice:
It helps if you take the offered explanation very slowly. We suggest that you briefly pause & contemplate the deeper meaning, after every sentence. To allow this truth to really sink in, it’s also important to deeply visualize what has been stated. F
LONG-LASTING HAPPINESS is a state of contentment, fulfillment and inner peace... THIS REQUIRES A SPECIAL STRATEGY! IT'S NOT THE SAME AS SEEKING PLEASURE. We need a new attitude, a change of direction, to achieve lasting or permanent happiness. But who can show us the way? Who would be prepared to help us? It often seems too difficult, too unknown and too threatening. It all just seems too hard! So, usually we just stay in our social circle, interest-group or religion. Here
In the previous blog post we posed the profound question ‘Who am I?’. We invited you to deeply contemplate this dilemma. We postulated that ANY highly intelligent & conscious entity, however large or small, would eventually ask this same question. It would seek to understand its origins. The largest such Intelligent Awareness that we could potentially envision is the entire Cosmos or ‘All that is.’ This is sometimes termed ‘Cosmic Consciousness’ or ‘Universal Consciousness'.
What went wrong in our upbringing? As an infant or young child we already knew, instinctively & intuitively, how to connect to our higher Self. We didn’t really have to think about it, or plan it. We didn’t have to understand or learn this; we just took it for granted.
It required no real effort and no prior instruction was required. We just did it! As a child we felt this inner-connection while absorbed in simple play: While we explored new things that were fun & brought jo
Inner connection is NOT something we can LEARN to do in the conventional sense. It can’t be taught using thought-based strategies, however clever these might be. The approach needed is almost the opposite of that! It’s the negation of thought. But we can still do it! We need to bypass our conventional thought-based mind! We will discuss and describe this alternative approach shortly. You can even try this out in practice if you wish! We will gently guide you through one such

This article continues from a previous blog post on the ultimatetest.org website titled ‘WHY get into THE ZONE?’ It would be useful to read that preliminary article if you have not already done so. In this part we get in to the detail. This article provides the step by step logistics of HOW TO GET INTO THE ZONE. Plus, we briefly discuss HOW TO LIVE FROM THAT STATE. We will make this explanation as plain, clear and simple as possible. The actual practice is often much simpler
As humans, not only can we do the incredible, we can do what is seemingly impossible. Let’s explain...
With only a little practice we can access our Inner Self. That’s our true innermost Nature. As a human, that is the focal point of our local Consciousness. From there, we automatically link to the unlimited Consciousness of the eternal Cosmos. With this Infinite resource, no life situation is thus unresolvable, no matter how impossible the task may seem. With the guidance o
We need to develop and utilise our innate capacity to 'tune in' with higher Awareness. This raises our level of Consciousness. This is the progressive evolution of our Consciousness. So instead of relying only on our biased memories, sensations, emotions and associated thought-based processes, we can override, transform or transmute these when appropriate. Whether we realise it or not, we all have as our human birthright, an innate ability to connect directly to an energy fie
Would the ultimate test of a life be some kind of I.Q. test? Is intelligence really the ultimate quality that humans possess? Or is this ‘ultimate’ attribute something more abstract and less tangible! Is it something we might intuitively recognize in a person as being truly remarkable but can’t quite name or define. What if we could really measure or quantify this subtle yet profound quality? What might these ultimate human attributes be?
How could we all benefit from this a
