Judgment versus Observation

The easiest thing in the world to do is judge.  We trained throughout our upbringing to do it, we learned it well through our experiences in life and we trusted it to show us what life is all about, who we are and where we stand  within it and with others.

Yet judgment is a closed circuit, a closed reality, leaving no room for anything else. And there is much much more... in fact, most of what is true and real, is always kept on the outside.

The surface mind persuades us that judgment is necessary in the process of linear time, so that we may, at that certain present point in time, choose who we want to be. But we should seriously begin doubting this concept.

Every time you make a judgment about anything or anyone, experiences somehow will reveal to you - if you remain observant and open - that you have misjudged, no matter how open-minded you thought you were or how much of the whole picture you thought you were seeing.

Half truths don’t make whole truths

Change is a matter of two or more people.

We are taught the opposite: that change happens within, that it is entirely up to us. Once again, we have half the the equation. 

On the physical level, and looking around us, at the world, the people, the creations, we realize that two or more people are needed, for any change to take effect. A student and a teacher, a seeker and a mentor, a child and a parent, two lovers, brothers… a relationship, purely of the heart. It takes a connection, a gathering, a "coming together", that is based on Love; respect, devotion, commitment, acceptance and all those virtues that reveal and strengthen what we truly are.

Daring to reveal ourselves

 This is one of those “strange” articles, intended mainly for the blog’s readers, my students and all the conscious seekers out there who read my articles.

I felt the need to write it down and share this with everyone versus just telling each person separately on a personal level, because I am convinced it concerns us all. Actually, as I can already sense, this will be a sort of “foreword” of my next article, which is already being written.

My main focus here is on sharing and the need of communication. Although I will be going into the subject in even greater detail in the following article, what I would like to stress here is the habit of keeping quiet, the habit of internalizing, the habit of not daring to expose ourselves.

When all you know is a lie...

and all that you are attempting to do (or be)
 is pointless!

This is a tough one, which most people don’t even want to think about, let alone take up the challenge to explore! And yet, it is a statement that will effectively focus your attention to questioning your beliefs, all your “concrete” virtual realities and set your mind free in order to start thinking for yourself and within your Self.

Each new day can be a magical revelation and exploration into the unknown, if we are brave enough to move beyond our beliefs and our conditioned way of thinking. And yet, the only state of being that could instantly free us, is the most feared and the least talked about!

New Mothers

Mothers don’t seem to realize just how much they can do for their babies. Instead of searching outside themselves for a miracle or healing, they can realize that they are their own source for healing and nurturing their babies. There is still so much for us to learn, letting go of our conditioning and our way of thinking, which is outwardly focused.

Mothers and babies are totally connected, even though the umbilical cord has been cut. That manifestation is just on physical level, where truth hides and reality is distorted.Truth being that a baby is totally connected emotionally with its surroundings and the people - mainly the mother/nurturer -  who are closest to it, it "cries out" for support and wisdom that it needs.

It might be “Christmas” or the "holiday season" for the Western adult world that still needs to create virtual realities through belief. But for a crying or sick baby, a different reality is emerging, which needs to be realized by helping it adjust to the freshly-entered world of matter.

And yet… we are creators!

Still impressed by how easily people are focused on the negative, the lack they don’t want, all that they think they can’t do, all that they think they are prevented from being.

Yet, isn’t that what we, personally do, to a great extent? Why is that easier to do? Because we are focused and stuck on “evidence” from our senses. We don’t realize that the senses and the physical follow the mind and not precede it. And that’s where the confusion sets in.

We think that this is known knowledge but it cannot be as long as we are not revealing it in manifestation, by being that which we preach.

What dyslexia is and isn’t

I guess as long as I am reading this stuff on the internet – I have stopped buying books on the subject ages ago – I will continue to write about the subject of dyslexia.

Let’s start with what dyslexia is not!

Dyslexia is not a neurological condition.

Dyslexia is not a learning disability.

We don’t “overcome” dyslexia.

Dyslexia is not a “condition”.

Dyslexia is not a medical term.

Dyslexia is not a problem unless we make it one.

We don’t get rid of a label that we mean, even though we are not using the word “dyslexia”.

Dyslexia Today

"Embracing Dyslexia (documentary film)"

A film long overdue… Now we can really being to study the subject, in a more objective way than what we have been doing up till now.

I used to try and spot out the mistakes, the misconceptions, the myths and the lies. That’s what the system of the society we live in always did and taught me, while I was growing up as a dyslexic. Now I know better. Embracing, understanding, looking at both or all sides to a story and synthesizing the various parts of it is harder work but immensely more rewarding and mind-opening. It takes self-confidence, the willingness to shift and the passion to be of service than to remain a critic. It takes the heart's desire to make the leap into wisdom verses replacing it with opinion. Yet, this won't be an easy read...

To doubt, means to be willing to see all possible sides of a matter. But it cannot be an intellectual, theoretical process. It needs to be heart-felt, practical and courageously accepted, where security and previous knowledge seize to provide concrete answers.

The Critic

When criticism is thrown back in my face, it distorts me in more ways than one. I see the shadow of me; that part that my ego doesn’t want me to see.

But I am in love with truth, with the totality of Me, to simply go with the ego’s trends.

It tells me it will protect me. But why would I need protection from something that isn’t real and just temporary programming that has entered my mind beside my conscious will?

Can I criticize ideas, viewpoints and opinions? That’s just the ego going around sideways. Why would I need to?
