This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Michael Cupo proposes that society does not clearly address the real cause of addiction. He has an understanding that all addictions can be overcome when that real cause is addressed and understood. – See more at: http://ow.ly/I57B1

A Tribute

Here is a tribute someone messaged to me about my book. I was so honored by this that I wanted to share it.

I have 2 online businesses, on both I posted your book, It’s Monday Only in Your Mind as reading material for 2015. Your written experience has influenced me more than any book I have read, what my M.A. in psych has taught me, 16 years of on/off therapy, Byron Katie workshops, personal interaction with Phil Lombardo, Shakit Gawin , Bob Stahl, Louise Hays and various Hay House authors that I personally know who have directed me towards my true being of love. I haven’t seen my therapist in 6 weeks. I am looking forward to a new relationship with him and with myself. Thank you so much for discovering the truth and sharing it with the world. Without meeting you, I believe you are my friend.

Answers Revealed

All inner agitations arise from within your questions. Without discipline the mind that’s full of questions will never get an answer so you will have to constantly seek one…

All inner agitations are ego based because they come from the Conditioned Mind. If there’s an inner agitation with what’s written here that arises from within; the words don’t cause it. It doesn’t matter if you agree with this or not, just understand your inner agitations come from within you. Oh how we love to blame others for our own self created agitations, but the only reason this is done is because of the lack of understanding of the Conditioned Mind.

Nothing causes an inner agitation unless it’s allowed. If you can change something by all means change it, but if it’s being changed just because YOU don’t like it, it needs to be looked at why you’re agitated to begin with because even if the thing is changed, you will just move on to the next thing that will cause you to become agitated once again.

Everything I’ve come to understand over the last thirteen years has arisen from within myself. It has been through the practice of discipline that real answers have been provided from my own inner questions. I can’t have anyone else’s answers because the one who questions is the one who has the answers. I do not have your answers because I do not have your questions. Everyone has their own questions to answer. Truth is the same for all beings, but how we arrive to its understanding is from the questions within ourselves. When one sits the mind settles and answers are revealed to our questions, this is when the inner agitations with yourself and with the world will be no more…

Unconscious Reactions

Most reactions that occur in life are unconscious and are put in place by your own mind. If your life isn’t lived to its fullest potential of love it’s your own unconscious ideas that are blocking it from being so…

Although things appear to be a certain way it’s not always as it seems. It’s difficult to see beyond your own mind when unconscious ideas are brought into play. So much of what the mind holds onto is unconscious and is put in storage to be used at particular times, this is how most lives are lived. It’s as though we already have in place the way things are going to be handled; unconscious reactions are formed this way.

Advertisement is a billion dollar industry because of this. Speeches are written using certain words which are known to sway people in certain ways. Supermarkets know exactly where to place sweets. It’s all based on putting things in a certain place so unconscious reactions are triggered .

This goes on constantly because the Conditioned Mind makes it so. If you had no previous conditioning none of the above methods would work, but this is not the case. One of the keys to not living an unconscious life is to a develop some way to be anchored in the present as the more you’re present in the moment, the more you’re with what life offers. When this occurs there’s peace because the unconscious ideas that have been put in place by the Conditioned Mind are no longer making it appear that things need to be different than what they are…

Unless the mind settles enough most of what you think will be a restriction of the Conditioned Mind. You shouldn’t believe everything you think as a thought is simply a thought that’s not necessarily true…

Nothing is a problem unless it’s made into one. Think of the context of this simple yet profound statement. Nothing no matter what is nether right or wrong, good or bad, or liked or disliked unless it’s labeled in that way. Our life is controlled by our thoughts and our thoughts are based on a restricted foundation; the restriction lies in the mind and the way it has been conditioned.

Listed are some of the ways it has been conditioned and if one gets quiet enough this will be seen. The car in front of me is going to slow, I have to go to work, I’m tired, my allergies are horrible, I’m bored, and on and on. All of these start out as a single thought, but that isn’t where the restriction lies, the thought is just the result of something that triggers it, what happens next is where the restriction lies; we believe the thought. It’s actually believed the car in front is going to slow, or going work is horrible. We believe our thoughts to be true and then we act accordingly, if the thought wasn’t labeled to be true, we would be able to see beyond it. We would see what was really going on instead of what our conditioned thoughts we’re making up. It would be seen the car in front of us really isn’t going to slow, we are just being controlled by the restrictions of the Conditioned Mind.

Learn to watch the nonsense that’s believed to be true, there’s so much of it, it’s hard to grasp. I mentioned one time to a person about the way we poison ourselves with alcohol and his response was he enjoyed alcohols effects. This is insanity to enjoy poisoning yourself, but that’s the restriction of a Conditioned Mind. People enjoy all sorts of things that are harmful to themselves, this also includes behaviors that harm others, and one’s own mind justifies it all. All I am saying is watch the thoughts that you think and learn how so many are based in restrictions that keep you in captivity to the Conditioned Mind. By no means should you take my word for it, the next time a thought pops into your head, take a moment before you label and act on it. Really take notice if what you are thinking is true or if it’s just a restriction of your Conditioned Mind…

Inner Child Reawakened

Depending on how conditioned your mind becomes determines the presence of your inner child, and the innocence of your inner child is the foundation to a life that’s loving, and caring…

We are all born of light, but that light staying lit is determined on how alive your inner child remains a part of your life. The more the self serving mind is in control the more you’re claimed by selfish desires and possessions. There are many traps along the way that take your inner child and lock it away. Drugs, alcohol, sex, greed, hate, delusion, envy, sloth, false pride, and anger are just some of the trappings, but there are many many more that takes you from the space of your inner child to a place that’s ruled by selfish wants and desires; very few of the trappings take hold all at once. The self serving mind is developed and one day if this path is followed continuously the inner child will only be there in the form of trying to constantly arrange life to be a certain way; this is the inner baby not the inner child.

Make no mistake between these two, the baby is self serving, needing, wanting, and selfish, the inner child is innocent, loving, and caring. Depending on your upbringing and whatever else influenced you determines how much of your inner child remains. To understand this is to know yourself and when you know yourself you can develop a practice to reverse your conditioning and free your inner child; allowing it to again be a part of your daily life. The more the practice of this is done the more of your inner child returns so you can once again see your light and be innocent, loving, and caring as you gwere when life began…

Controlling Principles

When you aren’t being controlled by principles based on outer things therein lies your freedom, but it isn’t freedom because life is the way that it’s wanted, there’s freedom because you’re with life the way that it is…

The principles that control your life make your life what it is. It doesn’t make life what it is because life just is, but it makes YOUR life what it is and until the principles in place put you in harmony with life there won’t be any, and hence your life will be the way that it is because it’s the way you are making it. It’s actually a beautiful thing when you become aware of this because it puts your life in your hands; there’s nothing more satisfying. When you aren’t being controlled by principles based on outer things therein lies your freedom; freedom because you’re with life the way that it is.

What happens with the mind that has principles not based in love is it gets hijacked by its own conditioning and you’re held hostage by your own mind. I know this sounds crazy, but this is exactly what’s happens and it’s all because of the principles based to self serve. When the principles in place are controlled by a me, me, me mind crazy is the norm because of these principles. When the principles change the craziness subsides. When you sit and see what the base of your actions are, you just may be able to change them. It will take time though because of the conditioning in place, but the alternative is to remain the way that you are; being controlled by principles that hold you hostage…

Awareness Freedom

Freedom from “I” attachment is based on awareness and awareness is based on stillness. An attachment based life produces noise which is the opposite of awareness; only in awareness can you be set free…

You will not learn to live in awareness if you’re not using tools that cultivate awareness. Many have gone before us and left us tools of awareness, but what do we do with them, we look for loopholes so we can do what we want and ignore their teachings. There are so many tools that point to awareness, but they are discounted because of “I”. So many have left us teachings of awareness, but we don’t hear the message because we judge the messages and the messenger with our Conditioned Mind. We hear our own message and interpret it as awareness so we can satisfy our ego I Self.

What most think awareness is isn’t awareness it’s perception. There’s my perceived awareness and your perceived awareness, but neither of them are awareness. There’s the underlying stillness beyond all that’s perceived, but you will never understand it or see it until you are quiet enough to know it’s right in front of you; it has nothing to do with what you think. That’s the thing about awareness, it’s always there and it’s always right in front of you, but because of the “I” generated noise it’s perception that’s most likely seen as awareness is something that only a very settled mind will sense…

The Trump Card is very, very close to being played!

Under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution,
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

Election Fraud would be a serious felony under normal circumstances, but under an active state of war it would be considered an act of treason. Think back Re: Kavanaugh conf. hearings. What are the requirements for a civilian to be tried for treason? We have been in a state of war since 2001.

Pelosi and all other members of Congress are NO LONGER members of Congress, they’ve forfeited their rights and offices by committing an act of TREASON. They are no longer lawful members of Congress, (and this doesn’t even include the Supreme Court justices who are complicit in carrying out this treason against our Nation!!), thanks to Section 3 of 14th Amendment. They are now considered enemies of the Republic who have aided a foreign power in stealing an election. When you have committed an act of treason, you forfeit your rights as an American. You have no rights. Military law vs civilian law?

Any evidence is admissible in a military tribunal court, so Pelosi’s stolen laptop, along with the other 11 stolen laptops, can be used in her military tribunal along with everything else Pelosi has done, to lock her and the others away for good. History will show that Donald Trump tried every legal avenue to solve this crisis against our Constitution. It will show that all others failed to address this Act of Treason. He tried to resolve this peacefully. His only recourse left was to use the military, but it will be a LAWFUL use of the military as these people have broken their oaths and committed TREASON and INSURRECTION.
President Donald J. Trump is LEGALLY REQUIRED to act on this because of his own oath to the Constitution, to protect our Republic from enemies Foreign AND DOMESTIC. The crimes on their indictments will read; TREASON, SEDITION, and CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. When the whole world finds out they launched a virus to steal an election, the Great Awakening will begin. They’ve sealed their fates!

And again, remember the brilliant preemptive/ offensive maneuver our President made when he signed the Executive Order and National Emergency Act on September 12, 2018…Any foreign or domestic interference in our National Elections carry severe consequences!
Of course high treason being chief among them as well as asset seizure/forfeiture, including those who deliberately aid in the execution and dissemination of misleading propaganda enforcing such treasonous activities!

Imagined Problems

Through the way the mind becomes conditioned imagined problems are created so the mind has something to do and because of this imagined problems are constantly created…

The issue with having to constantly solve created problems to arrange life to be a certain way is it’s all imaginary. Even if one makes up a story that life is exactly how you want it, the mind begins creating a new problem almost immediately. Life is continuous, it’s broken up into segments (imaginary problems) by a mind that’s in a constant state of agitation. If this wasn’t true you would see life as complete and your mind wouldn’t constantly need life to be arranged to your liking. It isn’t because of anything right or wrong that makes the mind see things in this way, it’s because the mind has been trained to create imagined problems so it’s only doing what it’s been trained to do.

The Conditioned Mind sees imaginary problems all over the place. The shortest line in the store, politics, religion, work, diets, and on an on, all this is strictly done to create another imagined problem; your mind tells you solving it will make life perfect. Let’s say everyday you create one new problem to solve, that would mean you create roughly 21,000 imagined problems; this is done to constantly have life the way you think it should be. After all nobody purposely gets in the longest line at the store, but if you did nothing would really change except for maybe not creating an imaginary problem…

Unique Path

Although we’re all the same in the way we exist, our road travelled is a unique path to go though life with what seems to be designed specifically for us to learn from…

There is a need to understand your path in regards to life so it isn’t compared to what someone else’s path may be; this is so your own life is lived to it’s fullest potential. We all have our own unique path which is the same in regards they all have a beginning and an end, but each path is different because where we begin is different. Take twenty people from all walks of life and go out in twenty different directions from the same starting point. Each one has different vehicle varying in year and reliability with a map to get to their destination; no one path is designated and it constantly changes because of circumstances beyond anyone’s control; everyone selects what they think is the best path for them.

We develop some tools that are useful and some that aren’t. Some things are pleasant, some not. There is fun experienced along the way and beauty to behold, but there are also difficulties, road blocks, detours, unexpected hazards, health issues, accidents, disappointments, death. But through all this we remain true to our unique path. We go forward because it is what’s in front of us. We need not compare our journey with others because in realty the only thing that’s the same is birth and death (the final destination at least in this form) death is Universal. So my friends as everyone reaches their final destination it’s discovered the destination didn’t matter as much as the ride, it was also discovered that it was the experience of the ride that makes life what it is and regardless of what happens the joy of any life is in what is experienced, and it’s the unique path travelled that makes it so…

Heart Truth

There’s a unity that comes from a deep place. It’s not a place that’s associated with any human activity, it’s a place which simply unites us to the truth of our heart…

In my experience the truth of the heart cannot expand on its own, it needs others. Deepening a connection with others deepens the truth of the heart which is what unites us. If unity to each other were to happen there would be no more lies because we would fall over each other in truth; it’s in this truth for each other that the magnificence of life is experienced. A majestic sunset, a cool summer breeze, the magnificence of the ocean, a starlit night, being truthful to oneself and others is a unity to all humanity, these are experiences from a deep place within.

I don’t profess to understand what life is about, but I do understand how a connection to others deepens the truth of the heart; when this truth is experienced it leaves one speechless. For me because of everyone I’m connected with I have been speechless many times in the last thirteen years. I’m using the word truth to describe this, but to feel this unity words cannot describe it. To watch in awe as I’m speaking to someone and as I explain what I went through, I see a sparkle of truth in their eyes, to me this is our hearts connecting. There’s truth that comes from such a deep place; it’s not something that any human activity can make happen. Only when there’s a deepening connection with others which allows for a deepening truth of our own heart will there be unity; with ourselves and with all humanity. To Thine Own Self Be True…

Circular Thoughts

If a person goes in circles in a thought based world, most likely they’re being controlled by a conditioned based existence. This is a prison that you will only be released from by going beyond your circular conditioned thoughts…

It’s impossible to be conditioned by circular thoughts that isn’t created by your own mind. This doesn’t mean without circular thoughts things won’t occur, it just means that regardless of what happens it’s your mind that creates the circular conditioning which comes from within yourself. Lots of things happen throughout the day and each time there’s a choice to hold onto it or not. Everyone has the ability within to cease causing their circular conditioning, it just takes a certain amount of discipline for this to occur. What discipline does is it slows down the thought process that runs continuously. This slowing down is the beginning of truth being revealed. Without it the necessary quietness that allows less circular conditioned will not happen.

If there’s continuous circular thoughts and no quiet all there will be is thought and this will not allow the ability to watch the cirlces unfold. If this isn’t seen your mind will never slow down and there won’t be any space created between your thoughts. Life will simply be thought based and the result of this will create your circular conditioning. When life slows down you’ll see how it’s your own mind that takes something that happens and puts it into a conditioned category. When you see this you can break free of the hold your circular mind has over you and you’ll be able to see that you’re not the circular mind, you’re beyond this thought based conditioning…

Truth Possibilities

There are so many possibilities in life when there’s truth applied to what’s occurring in front of you. The Universe provides these possibilities when you’re in harmony with life and not living a lie…

Truth is your greatest asset because without it lies arise and there’s nothing beneficial in a lie. Truth leads to possibilities never experienced before, but when you’re living a lie the mind is closed and in control the doors to possibilities are also closed. Whatever arises in life can be seen as it is truthfully only if it’s not seen through a past label. In this way life can be experienced anew as the Universe opens up more and more truthful possibilities. Even if some lies arise, without applying a past label it allows the heart to remain open and the possibility to go beyond the lies to experience truth.

Truth doesn’t always have to be an aha moment, it can be a simple act of not judging what’s in front of you and just experiencing that and moving on. Once something is labeled, the heart closes and so do all the possibilities along with it. To experience all the possibilities that life offers is to not allow the lies to be a part of what is being done right now. If it is obviously it remains as something old not something new, and even though it may be from a past habitual mind pattern it’s old because it’s labeled as such. Without applying a label, the heart remains open to truth and the possibilities that are provided by the Universe are beyond anything a lie limited mind can conjure up…

Inner Light

Our inner light is our true essence. The only reason there’s darkness is because we look for the inner light externally. When there’s awareness of the inner light it instantly dispels darkness…

There needs to be awareness of the inner light of the heart so the dark places of the mind dissipate. The light is always on just waiting to dispel darkness, it never goes out. When you live from the mind the thought realm is allowed to take over and it becomes very difficult to see your inner light. This inner light is what turns away the darkness of an unconscious state of mind; this is the world of the external answer. As long as answers are sought externally darkness will remain. Darkness creates a world that’s mind based and this is what blocks awareness of inner light. It doesn’t allow for the pure essence of the life given to be recognized. It holds onto the belief that life is to be managed so it can be a certain way, but even if the way occurs darkness remains because it’s mind based.

Inner light on the other hand is internal which is of the heart. When seen it dispels the darkness without effort; as when entering a room and the light is turned on the darkness is no more. That’s all that’s needed, the light needs to be turned on. Light will always dispel darkness, unless ones bulb is burnt out; this is our path to make sure the inner light is always lit regardless of the surrounding darkness. As your light remains lit more people from the darkness will see it and be drawn to you. When this occurs it will draw others to you as the light expands and maybe one day one light at a time, there won’t be any darkness to dispel because everyone will see their inner light…

Awakened Journey

Life is a journey and it’s a gift, but it’s up to each individual to make sure you’re not asleep throughout it and become awakened only when your final destination is reached…

Everyone who is alive is on a journey, no one remains in a state of stagnation. Life is always moving forward whether we are aware of it or not. It’s like when you take a trip that requires a plane to get to the destination, after the plane takes off it’s not even noticed that you’re moving. This is how life is and before it’s realized your journey is over and you are at your destination. Unfortunately during your journey if all you did was sleep you missed the entire trip and you cannot go back and repeat it because you have already reached your destination.

When we have reached our so called final destination (the end of life in this form) and our journey is complete if we were asleep we missed what occurred on our trip. So you can either be awake for your journey or you can be asleep, but it will go on either way, and once your destination is reached the journey is over. The key is to not be asleep for the journey and only wake up when you reach your destination because by then your journey (life) is over and the greatest misgiving is now you realize you have been asleep for most of it; this is how far to many lives finish up. There will come a time when it‘s realized the journey is now complete, but if you were asleep for it there’s nothing that can be done to go back and redo what has been done; don’t let this be your journey‘s end result. We are given the gift of life, but it‘s up to each individual to be awake for the journey so when your final destination is reached (the end of life) you can say, what a ride…

When the present moment isn’t needed to be a certain way that’s when you can truly be in harmony with life. If the attachment to needing the moment different wasn’t there, suffering wouldn’t exist…

When there’s a discussion about what it means to be free it is relative to the attachments that are held onto by the mind. Most of these aren’t even known so even though a person may have many attachments which their own mind creates, the same mind will tell you there are none. If the mind tells you there are no attachments who can tell say there are, but regardless if of the awareness of them ignorance isn’t bliss. Attachment is the number one deterrent to freedom, and freedom can only be had if it is known what one is attached to.

This isn’t to condone if someone is living unconsciously and is harming others, but if this unconsciousness isn’t known, there is no way the person can be any different. We are as free as our awareness to what we attach to and it is our attachments that cause us to behave in ways that are not conducive to love; attachment blocks our innate goodness from arising. Attach to nothing and nothing will be blocked, this is when true harmony with existence will be. It’s where nothing is needed nor wanted or desired. It is where life just is and an awareness that nothing added or attached to will make it any different. When life’s moments aren’t needed to be in a certain way, it’s at this point that one will truly be in harmony with life because it’s the attachment of needing life to be a certain way that is the true cause of ones own created suffering…
