Lately I’ve been interacting with few but considerably aware people. I tend to gather inspiration from interactions from certain individuals and then I’m able to create. It allows for posts and possibly YouTube videos or audios to be created.
I see the challenges within their lives and I see how I relate to these situations as well. These hurdles that they face are often the exact challenges I faced or still face today on occasion.
As pioneers and dreamers, we often have many hopes and dreams, but many do not come to fruition. We try to reach an audience, a group with similar views but this could be the crux of many visions and dreams.
As many have heard “It was the expectation that hurt the most.”. This applies to all things in life whether it be a friend, a partner, or even an event, it was the expectation that hurt. On top of noticing that pain, but the realization that you created that expectation that caused that discomfort came from yourself is the real kicker.
As I had coffee with another friend, he said the same thing about people hurting your feelings. Another great lesson when you realize nobody hurts your feelings besides yourself. Your thoughts and beliefs of what someone says about you is up to you whether you accept it or not.
In all cases, the outcome of the event can possibly bring about elation or disappointment depending on your mindset. Hopes are always there whenever we take action in our lives, yet our hopes don’t always have expectations accompanying it.
In the end, be open enough to realize that to fulfill your (expect)ations isn’t a requirement that the universe owes anyone, but at every precious moment granted to us… Hope and dream as big as possible.
Today I will speak about judgement, advice and how it often takes the form of righteous judgement leading to giving others advice.
To the people giving out advice, be mindful of what you share. At this moment I’m trying to be in a neutral space of observation as I type now.
By no means is this written for one person, in fact, it applies to me as well at all times. To have people looking for direction in life, I try to stay impartial and speak from observation, not judgement.
Often advice seems like you’re helping others in your point of view but offering it to specific people, even if they aren’t reaching out for advice is something else.
Offering advice when others never asked, or even showed an inkling of stress should be a huge neon signpost. In this very situation, it isn’t them that has a problem, it’s actually YOU not accepting them. Think about this… Are you letting them be free, or are you wanting them to fit in the box that YOU want?
“Kindly let me help you or you will drown said the monkey, putting the fish safely up a tree.” ~Alan Watts
There are indeed individuals in this reality and it would seem this individual doesn’t fit into your “box” of expectations, or beliefs. To honour diversity and individuality in this world is the key to living peacefully.
Now the most important part is also knowing when to step away from people. Knowing the DUAL state of this world is very important. To know there are situations with contrasts involved, know that there is oneness but that they belong in a different ripple or wave in this ocean of life.
To know the contrast in this world is also to know some won’t vibe with you or could be potentially abrasive to your lifestyle. Please walk away, because many can’t change and could cause you great distress.
To know judgement vs observation is a powerful tool to navigate through life. It could help with not being fooled and being able to walk away mindfully.
Offering advice may seem like assisting in correcting someone’s path, but as someone suggested, “you cannot change people no matter how much you think they should change. People change themselves.”.
When simply observing actions by others, I realized it was the adviser that wasn’t satisfied, not the person they’re trying to give advice to.
Without complaint, you’re living life in a satisfied state, but I suppose the person giving advice must feel triggered by what they see and judge your life in comparison to how they are living.
We all lived a different life growing up and these experiences shaped our lives. Culture, gender, beliefs, experiences all had an effect just to mention a few. Our upbringing is so incredibly diverse, how could we judge how to live and act?
At this point, I only try to offer advice when someone asks, continually complains about their miserable life (not just minor gripes) or someone tries to push me to change. After a few suggestions for me to change, I will speak up about their “advice” and give them this point of view.
“Who isn’t satisfied? Is it really me or are you not accepting me as an individual?”
So after seeing how advice and judgement can affect a person’s growth and how it really isn’t my business to get involved, I will advise others only when I am prompted to do so and I’m going to ignore the rest. I have enough things to process in life to worry about others.
In the spiritual community, I’m known as a physical healer at best and not an emotional healer, a philosopher or a guru to give others advice. People’s lives are way too complex for me and I’m too lazy to get involved besides writing a post or two now and again.
Whether you’re a person giving advice or a person receiving constant advice from others, I hope something here in this post proves to be useful in some way.
No matter which viewpoint you take in this world, you should always see the oneness in it all. Viewpoints in life bring rise to separation and duality in our physical reality. Let me explain further…
My movement, for example, is one in which people and healing styles should be expressed freely and not to be contained by systems or fixed by rules. Perhaps I’ve taken this viewpoint just to provide the contrast to the majority of beliefs and to give rise to another perspective. Although I try to play the role well, I still see the oneness behind this formlessmovement I’m creating.
To resist what is offered by form is to deny the understanding of the formless. One gives rise to the other in the reality of duality. Without egoic boundaries of who we think we are or what we believe in, we lose our identities and melt into the oneness… It then finally stops being us vs them.
Up does not exist if there is no down, the light would not be known if not for darkness, or what would be considered right without a wrong? The contrasts in the world of duality only come into existence when one of the two states implies the other.
In each case presented, have you realized that these positions of understanding or beliefs only exist in juxtaposition to the other? They are literally the flip side of the exact same coin. One example is dependant on the other to bring rise to the complementary opposite.
This view was further demonstrated by a close brush with death which left me with the deep knowing of the philosophical understanding of oneness. It took me waking from this near-death experience to allow me to not just conceptualize the idea of oneness, but to know it.
That lack of any sensory feedback from that dark void gave my waking life a whole new perspective. It was that great contrast between life and death that completed my understanding of oneness.
At that moment, all my sensory experiences exploded with such detail as I climbed out of darkness into the illumination of consciousness. That barren experience of Death had gifted me with such a rich experience of life.
The barriers had dropped and I was left with only my experiences. There were no more goals to achieve, no goals… except to live in its entirety.
To this moment I give thanks for my brief visit to the void, for it showed me how precious life truly is. To live and to live life robustly in the present moment brought me to the most direct experience with life and to intimately know oneness. It’s great to be back, but I’ve decided I’m going to live life differently this time around.
Have you ever asked yourself deeply about what you really want? No, really… have you?
Before we get into this topic, I must address a certain understanding I realized many people still don’t see or notice. Many times spiritual people look for “spiritual” items which may or may not be a tangible item in the physical world. These items are exactly the same as others living a fully material experience buying fancy clothing, cars, houses, and outward fame, success, power etc.
Many of my discussions from long ago often pointed to this understanding that spiritual pursuits are merely rebranded to seem spiritual, yet they remain just things like wearing a fancy clothing brand.
By swapping the name or focus of the item doesn’t change the fundamental illusion, and the temporary pleasure of getting that item. Instead of that new white gold bracelet, you buy mala beads, or instead of being a snob in a social club, you’re now a spiritual snob trying to prove you’re more spiritual than the next person.
At this point I’d like to bring you back to the main topic at hand and how this all relates to what you really want. Behind all these things that we chase no matter whether it’s a material item or a spiritual item, we feel that through these items we will finally reach happiness.
Think about it… All the things you’ve told yourself “I want this” or “I want to achieve that” leads you to the same exact place… You’ve been trapped in the illusion of Maya this whole time!
So no matter what name you’ve given your physical or spiritual goal, by saying I’m looking for enlightenment, power, less ego, or success, you’ve set yourself up for failure. In this shadow boxing scenario where you’re looking for that KO punch, your success lies in another plane of existence.
Focus NOW on finding happiness because the hurdles you’ve created by making it some sort of promise that you will be happy when these goals are reached, is the greatest trap you’ve created for yourself.
Go for your goal directly, and not in a round about way. Happiness is not based on all these dependencies, it should always be a direct experience of life. If you’re living life with a goal in mind, your experience of life has been lived with a barrier.
These goals have created a barrier between you and living your life fully! By being distracted by these methods to prove to yourself and others that you are enlightened, or more evolved, it has literally stolen life from you.
So I’m hoping I’ve shown you something that has gotten you closer to knowing what you want and how you’ve been seeking happiness this whole time in the realm of Maya. The rest of your journey must be taken by you.
To reach this state for you specifically would require your own understanding or simple guidance from another seeing past these illusions. I often see what many are doing but if you never admit or reach out for guidance, nobody can help except yourself. Good luck on your journey.
Have you heard of the term synesthesia or synesthete? If you’ve been following me so far, I’m just journaling my way through videos mainly but I hit other platforms to share what I’ve discovered on my strange journey.
I’m not fully certain about this topic connecting synesthetes and some spiritual practitioners, but I’d like to bring it up to people in either community or others who fit into both.
When I began energy work, it started off probably differently, but as I looked even deeper and came across this term synthenisia, I felt I might have this in my area of interest.
Think about it, shamans were known to be different, Empaths feel too much, healers are quacks, channellers are possessed or whatever the general public think. Have you ever connected the two?
It’s no wonder I had a hard time teaching others what I was doing since I think I’m touched with a version of synesthesia. Like most of these synesthetes, they only realize decades into their lives! The same goes for me and that’s probably a reason why I created my mini series for developing sensitive synesthetes in this area. I want to reach out to others like myself. I create videos more than I write, because I can’t read or write well but I try to make things as simple as possible for others to follow. Watch my video and see if you’re one of these people with this mutation!
I’ve made a video version of what Formless Movement is because everything I’ve learned was through videos and hands on experience. I was never a scholar and found it very difficult to read even today so I’d like to offer knowledge through videos so I can help others just like myself!
