There is so much truth in that its incredible. I especially liked when he said we have “more knowledge but less judgement” and “more experts and more problems”.
It goes to show a couple things:
1. We’re a therapy culture. We wait till theres something wrong and then try to “put a bandaid” on it rather than go to the root of the problem. And 99% of our problems are internal problems attracting the external “problems” that we’re paying 100s of $1000s of dollars trying to fix.
2. We value plain regurgitated information that we learn in school, over insightful thinking which actually makes a difference in your life. The other just gets you a better job. It doesn’t get you any closer to spiritual or emotional enlightenment, which gives you true fulfillment in life.
It really goes back to the point that the only way I believe the world will really change is when we have a shift in consciousness to realize whats truly valuable in this world. Most of all that we strive for is mainly wrapped around our ego, which keeps up chasing external “solutions” to happiness and fulfillment all our lives when the thing that we were looking for was already inside of us the entire time.
It just takes some humility, and awareness to see and choose it.
I thought this was really interesting, and gave me more awareness in my life. Sometimes it’s really easy to get caught up in the moment and not see how far you’ve come.
So to see how many “signs” that applied to my life showed me how far I’ve come and more importantly that I AM moving forward 🙂
Write in the comments what signs have you seen in your life?
The Key to Higher Consciousness
A higher consciousness or awareness is what I believe to be the key to fulfillment and to being able to manifest and create things in your world on a much larger scale.
What Is Consciousness?
First, before I share my insight on how to actually do this, we need to understand what consciousness actually is. What it is, is the act of interpreting your environment through through a certain “filter” of understanding.
But you must understand that It is not simply white or black. It is not that you are conscious or unconscious, because in actuality there are MANY levels on consciousness. Though there are many levels, most of us only see things on a very low level thus are spiritual awareness and fulfilment are very low…
A way to explain this difference in levels of consciousness is like if all of us were born with a mask over our face. This mask represents a lack of understanding. As we grow older and learn more we poke small holes through this mask to see things more clearly.
We have our “guesses” for what things might be like, just as a child thinks that stars might be light bulbs that are turned on and off, as do we have our own interpretations of our world around us.
How to Deepen Our Understanding
The catalyst for these understandings and realizations is questions. The act of questioning is what sparks thoughts and ideas which then lead to answers which further more leads to a higher understanding.
We questioned EVERYTHING when we were children with the resounding “why”..why is the sky blue…why do dogs bark…which probably seemed never ending lol. But the problem is that once we become adults a lot of us STOP QUESTIONING our world…
Which leaves only a few holes in our mask to see out of, missing out on an incredibly large amount of understanding.
Its these questions, and wonders which start to peal away the mask to see that the world is not merely rocks and dirt, and we are not just some animalistic creatures…
But that we are in fact spiritual beings having a physical experience, living in a world projected from our imaginings. And that when you fully embrace that, and open your eyes, you can begin your spiritual journey to a higher consciousness…
**I will explain in later blog post of how to now raise your spiritual awareness and to heighten your consciousness 🙂
I really hope you enjoyed it! Stay tuned for part 2 😛
It is saying that once we can admit that we attracted all the “good” and “bad” things of our past, it gives us control in the present to change the future.
Because if you blamed everything that has happened to you on an external source, then you have NO CONTROL over what happens with your life.
So to get control over your life, you HAVE to admit that you had control over everything that happened in your past but were just not conscious of it or chose not to use it.
Acceptance can be one of the hardest stages of your life. But one you get past it, it opens the doors to infinity.
Ever wondered about, at point did someone like Muhammad Ali become a champion?…
Was it when he won all his titles, and defeated almost everyone he fought?
WRONG. He was a Champion long before… In his MIND
“I am the greatest, I said that before I ever actually was” – Muhammad Ali
You must BE a champion, before you become one in reality.
Think about it like this. If I wanted to sprint in the Olympics, do you think I would get there slacking off on training, eating at McDonald’s and having the mindset of someone who’s unfit?
Haha of course not right?
I would have to THINK and BE an Olympic runner in my mind, thus acting like one, then bringing me closer to that reality of BECOMING an Olympic runner!
This is the same for every aspect of your life
If you want to become something in your life first visualize it, set your intention on it, and act on it consistently.
And what you will quite literally do is actually pull reality to catch up to you!
Pretty wicked huh? 😉
So go and visualize, and set your intention on EXACTLY what you want to become, and act on it!
There. You have now just consciously created your reality, being able to conquer anything in your life 🙂
This was kind of a fun song that I wrote, because I believe that everyone has an “inner badass”, that EVERYONE has greatness inside of them and its about actually releasing it.
We dont need to reach for greatness externally. At all.
Its in everyone of us. I dont agree with the belief that our “human nature” is evil and we need to fill our lives with good.
Its the exact OPPOSITE. We are all amazing, powerful, and badass spiritual beings in an earthly world!
I’m going to share with you in another post of how to “release” that greatness inside of you 🙂
But for now, have a freaking awesome New Years!
