Do you choose to be weak or strong? You may believe this comes from how you were raised, where you come from, what you have experienced or how you live your life. The Universe is here to tell you that both things come from within and depends solely on your thoughts and actions. Jut like making a conscious decision toward joy, happiness, love, inclusion and peace…it is your choice, it has always been your choice. ~ Creator

How do you reconcile the utter madness of the world with the overwhelming joy of being alive in it?
“Paradox: a situation, person, or thing that combines contradictory features or qualities.”
Without question we live in interesting times. The deception, insanity and turmoil in our world has no end, yet when we tune in very closely to life’s pulse, we find softness and connection open to us at every step. These contradictory features of the human experience point to the dualistic nature of the universe, but ultimately offer a glimpse of a middle way, the center, where harmony resides in a sea of chaos. A seeming, but natural paradox. Continue reading 3 Extraordinary Paradoxes of Personal Awakening

What was your spiritual awakening like? Do you remember the differences in your life before your spiritual awakening began? How has your spiritual path since becoming spiritually awakened?
Children often ask spiritual awakening questions that often begin with who, what, where, how and why. We questioned everything! My questions centered on religion because innately, it never made sense to me. Specifically, I questioned the creation myth, the timelines and the need to kill someone in the name of god. I never received an adequate answer from the clergy that fulfilled my quest for knowledge, so I put my questions on hold and let my spiritual path lead me to a time later on in life when the answers would appear. Continue reading When Spiritual Awakening Begins

I’d all but forgotten about the phase of Ascension called “Accountability.”
I’d dismissed the thought of mass arrests. And yet here we are, almost 2,000 indictments and going up each day, each indictment potentially naming several or many defendants.
As a student of the path of awareness, how do I feel about this stage of things? Continue reading The Fake, the Bad, and the Ugly

1. The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley
“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through the narrow chinks of his cavern.” ~William Blake
Huxley’s journey into cleansed perception was inspired by the above Blake quote. His self-induced psychedelic experience is what produced this philosophical essay turned non-fiction book, which then set the groundwork for all the contemporary psychedelic literature (psy-lit) to follow.

Positive Vibrations by Cedella Marley, A Nice Time
While some dreams may seem impossible, don’t allow the distance to discourage you from putting in the work to make it happen. There will always be a chance to achieve anything you want.
But it takes not just thinking about it, but going the extra mile and pushing yourself to the finish line. Your efforts have elevated your dream from impossible, all the way to likely. You start to feel that you’ve got it made, yet now is not the time to stop.

The more we stay connected to our higher mind – which we also call the universe, the source, or spirit – the more we strengthen and build that crucial bridge between ourselves and our higher consciousness. While we are all born connected to this divine awareness, we have a tendency to pull away from what was once natural. It’s reasonable to assume that when we become disconnected from our higher mind, the source that once nourished us will be replaced with another source or substitute.
In other words, the connection could be with food, alcohol, nicotine, co-dependency to someone or even work – hence the term workaholic. Many of us spend our lives trying to fill that void which was created when the link was broken. Continue reading Accessing Your Higher Mind
By Dylan Charles, Waking Times
Searching for the roots of today’s problems, and for realistic solutions, can be a wild goose chase. It seems most everyone is pressing an opinion or pushing an agenda, always outwardly, always blaming some other group for the chaos and suffering in our world, which never lets up. The division and frustration breeds more division and frustration, and we drift ever further from harmonious, peaceful living.
So why does the world keep getting crazier and more confusing? And what can individuals do to best navigate these times in order to live a meaningful and contended life, not getting caught up in the ever-evolving currents of mainstream events?
