Have you ever made a mistake you regretted? Do you wish decision making was less frustrating? Do your choices reflect what you really need? Accurate discernment is central to our experience & enjoyment of life. But it’s not usually part of traditional schooling. Let’s put aside what we were taught and start making up for lost time… In Part 1 of this ‘TOO EMOTIONAL?’ series we postulated that our society had made a big mistake! That we had excessively promoted a ‘scientific ap
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
What’s the nature of the ‘Universal Mind’ & ‘Cosmic Consciousness’? What a profound question! The answer must of course be speculation & hypothesis. At best it’s a theory that requires much more investigation & analysis. This however may be man’s greatest scientific & spiritual quest! In simplistic terms, the Universal Mind would be responsible for processing & maintaining all the information received. We are of course referring to the whole Cosmos! This Universal Mind would
We seem to be made of solid matter! Our skin, tissues & bones all seem separate or solid. But we know from science & conventional atomic theory that this ‘solid matter’ is mostly ‘space’. Atoms & subatomic particles take up less than 1% of that space. But is that spare space really empty and made of nothing? The answer could be so simple, so elegant and so profound. If some maverick scientists are right, this will radically change the way we view everything! Not only in the w
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'.
Our Ego-mind wants to identify, separate & disable any rival. Even if that rival ‘guidance system’ is an integral part of our true sovereign nature! Any alternative is however seen as an existential threat to the Ego’s power & control! Instead of just using Ego, our true ‘sovereign-self’ uses a guidance system that extends far beyond thought. This ‘inner-guidance’ process cannot be easily defined or described. It’s beyond conventional terms, symbols or concepts. It’s beyond t
