The Story So Far...
“I believe therefore I am.”
When asked recently what exactly my philosophy was I quickly replied that it was plain to see – just go and read my books and all the other stuff I’ve written. “Yeah but” was the reply “could you just explain it to me in simple terms without me having to go and read all that stuff to work it out?”
So here goes…
We are here for a reason – YES life has a purpose! – to ascend and expand spiritually. I like to call this ‘Ascension Theory’ – that our purpose in this material world is to bring light onto the planet. As they say in Taoism – to be the bridge between heaven and earth. The only way we can do this is to move to a higher and higher vibration – to move closer to love – to resonate more closely with unconditional love. For it is love that gives us freedom from fear as it is the antithesis of fear and all of the control based paradigms that go with it.
To be able to resonate with love, we must first find love within ourselves and the best way to do this is to find our life path. This is our sacred path.
The specific purpose in all our lives is generally only fully revealed to us in retrospect so there is a need to love our lives in flow – in the moment – and to be able to release our need to know ‘what happens next’. In other words – you can’t fully ‘work it out’ – you can think your way through life only to a certain point and then after that you need to embrace the chaos and allow life to surprise you.
The best way to find purpose is to follow passion and do what you love. By loving ourselves first and being love then we give ourselves a better chance of releasing our fears and putting love into the world so that we can fully embrace the experiences that life may present to us.
The ultimate place to be therefore is to embrace love in all its forms. Love of self, love of others, love of life. In this way one can be free of fear, free of the need to try and control things, and able to let go and be in flow. Hence be in happiness, hence be able to bring happiness and love and light onto the planet.
Make sense so far?
Bliss is really what we are looking for.
I should add also that the environment in that we are living is a mystery. The World and how it works is a mystery. We should never hope to fully understand it but we should never stop trying to work it out. In other words – complete understanding is not possible. Complete certainty is beyond our comprehension. Again – embrace the chaos – become comfortable living in uncertainty.
The issue is the middle bit – how do we get from where we are now with our issues and baggage – to where we want to be – in that totally blissed out happy state doing exactly what we love to do and being in perfect alignment with our life path.
That’s the bit where all my work comes in. I believe that our natural state is to be perfect light filled beings but that we come into this world like a diamond that has been stuck in the mud. Some or all of our facets are dirty, preventing us from shining out into the world. Our task therefore is to – one by one – clean up our facets, shine up our being – so we can light up the World with our brilliance.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”
I believe that we construct our reality through our beliefs and our stories and that our best course of action is to evolve our ‘being’. Hence,
“I believe therefore I am”
Our challenge is to work in the three Worlds – the Present, the Past and the Future – to clean up our being and to find and follow our life path. Always seeking to evolve consciously and always ascending to a higher vibration.
In the Past our task is to face and release limiting beliefs. To uncover our deepest stories of who we are and what we believe we deserve and let go of the ones that hold us back.
In the Present our task is to fully surrender to the moment. To release our worries, concerns, anxieties and fears and to embrace life as we live it.
In the Future we have the opportunity to plant seeds and EXPAND. If life isn’t about dreaming a bigger dream then what is it? The human condition allows us to create grand visions that inspire ourselves and others into creative action.
To me all of this is about letting go of many of the things we have learned in this life and training ourselves to remember how to be ‘powerful beings beyond measure’.
In this challenge we are all linked together. Quantum Physics tells us that there is a quantum field that links us all together as one. Whatever I do in some we influences you and vice versa. Therefore we are not sole creators we are co-creators.
Which means that sometimes there are things I want to create that will be limited or held back by the whole. However, it also means that I have an opportunity to influence the whole of humanity – however subtle this may be - in every moment of every day.
My enlightenment, salvation, ascension – or whatever you like to call it is therefore intricately linked to yours. But yours is also linked to mine.
I choose then to hold a higher vibration. I choose then to dream a bigger dream. I choose then to move away from fear and towards love.
My work is dedicated to this task.
If you want to play soccer well then you don’t just stand in front of the goal kicking the ball into the net. You work instead at core skills – running, foot skills, strategy, team work etc
Likewise I believe that there are key skills that you can work on to help you ascend to a higher vibration.
These skills are the 8 Principles in the Self Mastery Program
- Choose to Believe in Yourself and love yourself UNCONDITIONALLY
- Open your HEART and become fully emotionally expressive
- Be Present and in FLOW
- Follow your PASSIONS
- Have the COURAGE to ACT
- Have FAITH that there is meaning in life even if you don’t know right now what it is
- Be GRATEFUL for what you are getting and experiencing right now
- Embrace LOVE in all its forms.
Neuroscience now tells us that our brains are extremely plastic – that we can reshape them by changing what we focus on and changing what we believe.
I believe that we can use the findings from neuroscience and quantum physics to fundamentally change the way that we are being and hence change our World.
I walked into a Nursery this morning to buy some plants and was told by the owner that it was really hard to get the particular plant that I was looking for because it was no longer economic for the growers to grow it.
“That’s a shame” I said
“Money makes the world go round” he replied dejectedly.
Does money make your World go round?
What if love made the World go round?
What sort of World would we live in then?
Are you ready to let go of your fears? Ready to stop hiding from the World just accepting whatever you are getting and step up?
Are you willing to change the World?
You may think this is all too hard. You may cringe at the thought of taking some responsibility. You may look at the problems in the World right now and feel it is beyond you. It may feel easier to buy into your own powerlessness.
“Our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”
You may think I am far too idealistic. A nice thought but totally impractical…
You can begin though in the simplest of ways. Just by believing just for a few minutes every day that it is possible to live in a World ruled by love.
“One can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Lewis Carroll, ‘Through the Looking Glass’
Dare to dream a bigger dream because,
“We are the ones we have been waiting for”
