100% Aligned

Until the practice of quietness becomes our number one priority 100% of the time, it will be difficult to sustain our alignment with Universal Love 100% of the time…

You will either be self serving or you will be of love. You can’t really flip flop between the two, it’s one or the other. Love can’t be your guide sometimes. You will fulfill your urge to serve Universal Love or you will serve yourself, but understand you can only reap what you sow, and when what is sown is through love and the energy emitted is from that love, your daily actions will be of love because of being not doing, and when being is the base of your life you will always be fulfilled.

The other day someone asked me what God’s will was for me and I answered immediately “not to be self centered” although I’m not so sure about it being God’s will, but I do know not to be self centered is my will. There is nothing else needed to do because when the mind isn’t stuck in the self serving mode, it is free to love and that freedom is because of the alignment with Universal Love. For me it’s not about my messages, my post, my book, my job or anything else, it’s simply to be aware of the quietness of the present moment because without that the only place love exist is in your head and it remains a concept. This is why vows, pledges, resolution and what not don’t work, it’s not that they aren’t made in sincerity, but they aren’t ingrained enough in the subconscious to be carried out on a continuous bases. There are moments when they’re applied, but until the practice of quietness becomes our number one priority, we will not be able to sustain our alignment with Universal Love 100% of the time. This will make it extremely difficult for our actions to exhibit Universal Love as our minds default setting. The self serving mind is very subtle and you will never be free of it until you are willing to practice 100% of the time so your actions are a benefit to all beings 100% of the time. This will not occur as a concept, this will only occur when your actions are aligned with Universal Love 100% of the time…

Roller Coaster Mind

If you don’t want to constantly have a roller coaster mind you will need to understand you are not your thoughts and just maybe you’ll learn how not to push your roller coaster minds start button…

When something happens in life and an emotion is attached the roller coaster mind begins. Up, down, round and round, loop the loop, fast, slow and when it finally runs its course, the roller coaster mind stops, that is until the next emotion pushes the button that begins the process again; this repeats itself over and over. The roller coaster mind isn’t activated until the button is pushed. A thought is simply a thought, there’s no substance to it until it’s attached to, but it’s not really the thought that’s given control, it’s the attachment to “I” because without “I” the thought would be unable to begin the process; thoughts don’t start the roller coaster mind. You have thoughts all day long that don’t push the start button, it’s strictly the attachment to “I” that starts the roller coaster mind and puts emotions in motions.

Thoughts are like electricity, this is the energy provided for the roller coaster mind. The energy is just there, like a light that’s plugged in, but isn’t turned on. So now depending on how you’re conditioned, but regardless of the nature of the thought, when there is attachment to the thought the start button is pushed and the roller coaster mind starts moving. It has been set in motion and will now have to run its course. The start button was pushed, the consequences of this is some roller coaster are larger, faster and scarier than others. No one but yourself is responsible for starting this process so if you don’t want to constantly have a roller coaster mind for the rest of your life, it will be needed to understand you are not your thoughts and just maybe this will assist you in learning how not to push your roller coaster minds start button…

Attaching to Thoughts

Wanted thoughts, not so wanted thoughts, attaching to either one allows the emotional energy of the thought “I” to push the start button that begins your emotional attachment…

In the realm of your thoughts there is no right, wrong, good, bad, like, dislike, anger, calm, happy or sad, etc, there is only the everlasting peace of non judgment of each precious moment that you are alive in, that is as long as there isn’t attachment to them. The emotions attachments to those things listed are what controls the way that you’re pulled around and controlled by your thoughts. The initial thoughts still occurs without the attachment, it just isn’t controlling. It’s strictly attachment that gives a thought the energy that makes life the emotional ride that most people experience.

I know we all want to attach to thoughts that are pleasurable and we like to identify them as who we are, but what of those thoughts that we don’t want, we know we don’t want them and we definitely don’t want them to be who we are, but they’re really no different than the wanted thoughts. All thoughts are energy in its purest form nothing else, their transforming energy is caused by our attachment to them. They affect our life differently dependent on the energy they’re given. If one wants to be identified by the thoughts that they want, you will have to be identified with the unwanted ones also. The key is to understand what would happen if neither the wanted or unwanted thoughts were identified with, where would that leave you? Sit with that for a little while…

Kindness From Love

You can’t act your way to a heart of kindness, love has to be sown if you want kindness to be the base of your actions. When it is, you will never again have to change because you are being your true self…

No act of kindness is random. If your heart is one that is truly based in love, kindness will be the way you will act. Because of the way we have been conditioned kindness may not always shine through, this is why there is the struggle to act differently. Our essence is to love, when we don’t we struggle. We needn’t struggle, but we have to understand why we do if there is to be change. True change occurs not by changing the way you act, but by seeing what causes it. We do not make ourselves change. You can’t act our way to a different way of being, it has to come from the heart. When your heart is of love, your actions will be of love. You can only be what you are and your actions show it.

A lot of life is spent in between our planning and our doing and it’s there that the ground work for your actions are formed. That in between time can be quiet or it can be noisy, but it will determine how you will act and if you’re going to need to act differently or not. If the ground work produces kindness then nothing different will be needed. If not you will need to do the ground work so kindness becomes the base of your actions. Whatever the base of your life is you can only act accordingly. Apple tress produce apples, but you can reap something different if you plant different seeds. So you act the way you act, because of what has been planted in you, but if you want to bare different fruit, you will need to plant different seeds. Plant the seeds of love and that is what will grow. You will then act in a way that’s beneficial to all and nothing will need to be changed because you will be who you truly are, not who you aren’t…
