The Art of Asking Essential Questions

The quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our thinking. The quality of our thinking, in turn, is determined by the quality of our questions, for questions are the engine, the driving force behind thinking. Without questions, we have nothing to think about. Without essential questions, we often fail to focus our thinking on the significant and substantive. When we ask essential questions, we deal with what is necessary, relevant, and indispensable […] Read more »

Is ‘ABE’ a Metaphor for our Ego?

Is ‘ABE’ a Metaphor for our Ego?

I found this comment on the following video and thought it was brilliant and insightful. If he knew how to fix himself he’d already be coping. All he knows is this selfish love, so he’s trying to work with what he knows. Unfortunately, most people function in this way. Instead of trying to understand their own condition they try to change the conditions of others to match their own. People forget the dynamic, and just […] Read more »

Escape from Victim, Villain, Savior, and the Duality Drama

The Duality Drama

We have the survival mechanism of “fight, flight, freeze, and tend & befriend”, because we’ve been conditioned to ask a very narrow set of questions, and seek for their narrow set of answers. This narrow line of questioning keeps us from experiencing the infinite potential available through the power of questions and answers. At the core of our dilemma are limiting questions, such as “how can I feel safe from villains?”, “how can I feel […] Read more »

The Trivium – How to Free Your Mind – Jan Irvin at the Free Your Mind Conference

The Trivium – How to Free Your Mind – Jan Irvin at the Free Your Mind Conference

We must unlearn the damage done to us by our education system, it was purposefully used to make us compliant slaves to our Elite taskmasters. To accomplish this, we can renew and retrain our minds, through learning the critical thinking skills given to us in the Trivium method, and then refining and honing them daily. Combining EFT with the Trivium allows for exponential use of these skills. “Education should aim at destroying free will, so […] Read more »

Victim, Villain, & Savior vs Student & Teacher

The Divine Marriage

VICTIM / VILLAIN The victim replaced the student archetype (template), and when that happened, the teacher became the villain. However, if we are able to realign our victim as a student, the teacher will again appear, as it is said, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” We each have both archetypes within us: “If I am the victim, then I must also be a villain, and if I am the villain, then […] Read more »

“What” is Wisdom?

The Trivium & the Unity Process

Wisdom is the ability to utilize both your knowledge and understanding in your actions. Knowledge answers “what” questions, understanding answers “why” questions, and wisdom is the synthesis of your “what” and “why” into your “how” questions/answers. If you jump into your “how” without first acquiring enough knowledge and understanding, you are not making a wise choice. ~Nathan & Aline Read more »

Politically Correct Gender Preferences vs Making the Unconscious-Conscious

Happy gay couple outdoors

This meme completely misses the bigger picture, and keeps people small and disempowered: The notion that because we were born with a particular sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or mental illness, that we have no choice over such experiences, is a very limited perspective of the overall issue, more politically correct than actually correct. The only choice in the list above that really is out of our control in this material reality is our race of origin. […] Read more »

Avoiding with Acceptance

why

Accepting what is without understanding ‘why’ things are as they are is avoidance, this form of acceptance is a trap that keeps one powerless. Being present with what is with the intent to understand it, is transformative and powerful, and allows for new feelings, and their associated experiences, to manifest. This form of presence accepts how things are, to notice the patterns; the ability to discern patterns is known as consciousness or awareness. Once a […] Read more »

A New Paradigm of Compassion

osho-compassion-awareness

Many lightworkers are still looking at compassionate action as something that is done externally, and not an internal alchemical process of transmuting their personal feelings, patterns, actions, and ideas into something new; they believe that they can act our world into a better place without profoundly changing who they are within. “The only hope for humankind is in the transformation of the individual.” ~Krishnamurti There are two separate patterns and paradigms of relating to the […] Read more »

How to Forgive

When we wrote this, we had no idea that July 7th was international forgiveness day, we just love how the Universe works in concert like this!  xo <3  ~Nathan & Aline As we’ve stated before, we have found that understanding is the catalyst of forgiveness, and that forgiveness comes quite naturally after a person understands “why” any given bad thing may have happened to them.  “Why” is the pattern in their life in the first place?  “Why” are […] Read more »

Ask And You Shall Receive

Why?

Geometry is the study of the relationship of one object to another, it is the math of relationship; and EVERYTHING is relationship. When we speak of the feminine and masculine, we are not talking about gender differences or societal stereotypes, we are speaking of a geometric relationship between the “being state” and the “doing state”, Creator and Creation, that is inherent within all manifested and unmanifested life. There is a masculine (child) and a feminine […] Read more »

Paradigm Changing

Why?

Asking questions is the most dangerous thing that a person can do to threaten the current societal paradigm…this is why they try to imprint their own questions onto us through social conditioning; schools, media, political, and religious means. You don’t need to be an activist, you don’t need to change their minds, you don’t even need to stop their actions, you just need to keep asking as many questions as you can, and keep seeking […] Read more »

Understanding and the Speed of Thought

Vektor - Blume des Lebens - Herz Lotus - Chakra

Have you noticed that there is a type of “understanding” disseminated in many circles, where awareness/consciousness has been divorced from the feminine principle of understanding? They believe that to seek to understand something is thinking, which they label as the ego, and that all thoughts are ego; and that to seek is also a childish game of the ego. But what if all thoughts are not ego, but instead, only the unconscious thoughts are? And […] Read more »

The Shamed Feminine

Aline Van Meer

Preconceived notions are a result of images, given to us by society/media and other outlets…The feminine is then put in a place of either ‘living up’ to the images or getting criticized and rejected. (e.g. : porn and the Bible are full of images that are taken as ‘how it should be’ instead of personal experience.) I will not cater my answer to your expectation (images) but I will give you what you need… It […] Read more »

Do All Paths Lead to God?

Road on the sky

I’m sure you’ve heard the politically correct saying “all paths lead to God”, but do they really? Does a parasitical path of leaching, sucking, and draining others really lead to God and unity consciousness? Asking “why” to understand yourself out of your parasitic tendencies, while you are still stuck within the system, is the path towards reconnecting with God, but spiritualizing away the guilt and shame to continue in parasitical behavior isn’t pure, it’s taking […] Read more »
