To Transcend Yourself Be Yourself

robert

“Many equate spiritual awakening and liberation with somehow moving beyond selfhood, but my deepest intuition about this is that the more deeply we ARE our uniquely individuated self, the closer we are to fully awakening to who and what we truly are. In short, to transcend yourself be yourself.” ~Robert Augustus Masters Read more »

The Dangers of Hoping for a Messiah

russell-messiah

Discernment is a severely lacking asset in many people, without it, they can be lead astray with the slightest winds of change; it is of the heart and connected to the concept of purity. Discernment does not give the benefit of the doubt because it is highly conscious and sees things for how they really are, rather than just hoping for relief from how things really are. Judgment, on the other hand, is not about […] Read more »

Entitled Children of God

Being is the Gift

We often act as an entitled child in relationship to God/Universe/Higher Power, thinking that we are owed many good things for our good deeds and acts of compassion. The thinking goes, I do good things for others, and they should do good things for me too; and I serve God, and “He” should reward me for that, right? However, there is a limiting belief related to what exactly is a gift and what is not…for […] Read more »

Individuation or Consciousness Soup?

quotes

“We’ve got a radically different view of unity consciousness, one that has permeated all of our writings for the past several years, where individuation of the Self from out of the muddied waters of duality consciousness results in complete individuality and uniqueness, and not less. We call the unity concept of the duality paradigm “consciousness soup”, which is an enmeshed mass of beings who have given up their individuality to a collective “we” and hierarchy—it’s […] Read more »

Robert A. Johnson – The Double Animus: Two Stories

The anima is the inner feminine of a man, while the animus is the inner masculine of the woman; each is the expectation that a person has for their external opposite other.  Oftentimes, we are able to experience an either/or fulfillment of our expectation for our external opposite other, and in this story, the double animus, the double internal masculine of a woman, is explored.  Enjoy! “One will no longer attempt to find somebody who […] Read more »

Systems of Reality – Part 1

nestedsp

Systems of Reality | by Ken at Redefining God Here is a graphic of your spirit surrounded by three nested spheres… …The inner sphere represents your personal reality, the middle sphere is our collective Earth human reality, and the third is the reality of this universe (just to name a few core reality spheres with which you interact). How does each of these realities operate? How do they work together? In my current thinking, there […] Read more »

Tantric Technique: Being Present

We’ve been trained by society to be human doings rather than human beings, where we do things for and to people as a gift, but what if that is not how it is supposed to be? What if we the gift is our being and actions spring forth from the the being “being” with other people. What if actions are the result and not the cause of being with others? Being is the gift, while […] Read more »

Boundaries are the Result of Individuation, and not the Cause

boundaries

Boundaries are a great concept for self-preservation in theory, but they are only possible when a person is free from enmeshment.  Any and all boundaries attempted while enmeshed are actually laws and rules meant to keep a person safe within an enmeshed reality; they require fighting dominance with dominance, even if it is in a supposed enlightened and spiritualized form.  A person without boundaries needs to enact laws and create rules in an attempt to […] Read more »

Being Present is the Gift

“Being present is the gift, no action can equal the gift of being present with another person. We’ve gotten it backwards in our society, and it’s time that we change that; actions result from being, actions do not secure being. I’ll be here now with you, and you can be here now with me, and that is how we’ll be together.” ~Nathan & Aline Humanity uses actions to make money, which we then use to […] Read more »

Which Alignment are You?

Balance

I found this website a few days ago (HERE) , and have been utterly fascinated by it since, it shows the nine possible character alignments in the Dungeon & Dragons role playing game, and honestly, it seems dead on about life in general, not just role playing. I can see that I have been many of the “good” sides when I was younger, but have been gradually gravitating towards neutrality, bouncing from lawful neutral, chaotic […] Read more »

Carl Jung: Thirteen Quotations on the Shadow

carljung

Originally blogged by STEPHEN PARKER, PH.D on JANUARY 26, 2011 on jungcurrents.com. The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge. Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14 Filling the conscious mind with […] Read more »
