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 […]

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 […]

Escape from Victim, Villain, Savior, and 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 […]

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 […]

“What” is Wisdom?

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

Avoiding with Acceptance

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 […]

A New Paradigm of Compassion

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 […]

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 […]

Paradigm Changing

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 […]

Understanding and the Speed of Thought

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 […]

Do All Paths Lead to God?

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 […]

Politically Correct Self-Respect

It’s now very common to hear people say, “I’m rather offended by that.”  As if that gives them certain rights.  It’s actually nothing more…than a shine.  “I find that offensive.”  It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be repeated as a phrase.  “I am offended by that.”  Well, so fucking what.” ~Stephen Fry Political correctness and supposed “self-respect” ends the conversation prior to either party gaining awareness or understanding […]

The Simple Life

To an untrained heart, asking “why” to understand may seem complicated and unnecessary, while finding a “how” solution to skirt around uncomfortable feelings may feel simpler.  We agree, digging out of the web of lies that you have buried yourself in can feel quite complicated, but once the lies are all gone, life becomes extremely simple.  ~Nathan & Aline

Why Am I Feeling this Way?

If you get into an argument and feel sad, afraid, or angry, instead of blaming the other person for your feelings, try asking yourself “why am I feeling this way?”, and keep asking “why” until you fully understand each and every reason “why” you feel that way in that moment.  Any understanding that ends with “because they” is still blaming the other for your own feelings, patterns and experiences; it is not personal responsibility, but […]

Ask Better Questions for a Better Life

You always receive the answers that vibrate at the frequency of the questions you ask; if you do not like how your life is manifesting, raise the vibration of your questions to pull in higher, more suitable answers. ~Nathan & Aline
