You Throwing Dirt On My Old Name…

I still find it amazing how much people love to talk about others in a bad way.

You do realise that every time you say anything or think anything bad about another you are only HURTING YOURSELF.

HOW???

When we say anything or even begin to think badly of anyone we lower our mood. We also lower our frequency, our standards and our energy. The more time we give to that person the more energy we waste, the more time we waste and the more we destroy ourselves internally. We introduce stress chemicals into our bodies like cortisol which loves to make us fat and destroys any chance of positive repair and growth within the physical body. All of this just to slander someone? Seems pointless right, but people LOVE to talk badly about others.

Talking negatively of others comes from the emotion fear. We are fully engaging the ego and we are doing nothing but judging. If we judge we perceive ourselves as ‘Better” than the other person. If we are better than the person we are slandering… why are we lowering ourselves to speak so badly of them? Surely that makes us just as ‘stupid’ as them or even worse…

What do you wish to achieve from doing such a thing? The only thing you will achieve is pain, karma and negative energy. The universe and people are very reflective. Im sure you have heard the saying, ‘What you put out the universe, you will get right back’. Well this is very true, when you direct negative energy at another being, you will get it straight back. Ever been angry and then stubbed your toe? Ever sat there with your friends laughing at someone else’s expense behind there back to then go and find a parking ticket on your car? Someone stole you handbag? You just dropped your phone, again? Be careful of those people with smashed phones 🙂

What we put out we always get back, simple. PERIOD. Next time you decided to laugh at someone, say anything bad about them just be aware you are about to get that right back at least 2X harder. It is not worth it all. Also remember how much more of a dick you are becoming by engaging in such thoughts or acts! The world doesn’t need anymore bad people so change yourself!

Hate speech is just another form of anger. Buddha says much about anger. TWO of his best sayings are…

Being angry at someone is like picking up a hot coal and throwing it at them, YOU GET BURNT!!!

&

Being angry at someone is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die…

Buddha has his shit together. You need to get it together too.

One last thing id like to enlighten you on today is a quick insight into the esseene mirrors.

Very simply this is what you think of others is usually who you are yourself. When we quickly point the finger at others and say it is them who has a certain problem, it is 99% probably actually you who has that problem, not them. They are a part of your illusion showing you just who you really are.

DROP the EGO. QUIT Judging others. You are in no position to judge anybody. Speak badly about anyone and expect that negativity to come back around ten fold.

Be LOVING. Be KIND. Be gentle. Be AWARE. Be PRESENT. Be the person you wish to see in others. BE an EXAMPLE.

All my unconditional love

What Are You Worrying About?

In life we continuously worry about everything.

OMG did I just get caught speeding, I wasn’t paying attention, my mind was somewhere else?!

Oh shit, my insurance comes out the bank today, do I even have enough money to cover it?

My client has just decided to take a month off, how can I afford to pay the rent now?

I really like this person but what if they cheat on me, how will I forgive myself for letting myself get so deep?

The list goes on…

We spend a ridiculous amount of our lives WORRYING about things that are COMPLETELY out of our control. WHY? I do not know!!!

Yes, even I have spent many many years worrying about all sorts of stuff and sometimes, rarely, but sometimes still get caught in the worry trap. So what are we trying to achieve today? Well I want you to first off realise what you are doing and that what you are doing is primarily wasting your time and secondarily destroying you. Next I want you to find a cure for this soul destroying habit so you can spend more time enjoying life and doing more things that you love.

So without further or do why do we we WORRY so much? 

Il keep it simple. We worry because most of us lack the ability to live in the present moment. We want to live in the future and we want to worry about what could potentially happen next. If we aren’t worrying about what is next we are thinking about what happened in the past and what we could maybe have done to prevent it, change the outcome or we think why did we just do that? Its all time consuming pointless worrying no matter which time zone you are trying to exist in.

So that is why we worry, we need to now understand what we are doing to ourselves when we do worry. When we worry we overthink. Overthinking is merely your brain creating unrealistic, pointless or fake scenarios that crush your happiness. You maybe thinking did I get caught speeding or not? When this happens you are concentrating on fear. Fear that you may have done something wrong. When we concentrate on fear we rid ourselves of any happiness and we create more fear. Fear is a shit storm and it is an emotion hard to pull away from. Its like an addicting drug habit, you get involved with it and it pulls you in, it seems to grab hold of you without ever wanting to let go. You think of the speeding issues, then you think how much is the ticket going to cost, how many points you already have on your license, how much over the speed limit where you driving, do you have enough money to cover the cost of a ticket and BOOM you crash into the car in front of you. YOU LOST YOUR MIND. This is what overthinking and worrying does to you. You lose all focus and balance and you lose control. What was potentially nothing could now be a ticket, a fine and a fatal accident. Next, overthinking and worrying causes loss of time. We may have or have not been caught speeding but instead of remaining calm and driving along listening to that audio track about business and marketing, you are now listening to nothing but your own mind playing tricks on you. We stop all the good and productive things that we are doing and we focus purely on the fears we create in our mind.

So, how do we stop or hold back any of this?

First off recognise what you are doing. When you start to realise you are falling into a trap you have more chance of saving yourself from falling any deeper. Most people at the present moment they are falling in they don’t realise what is going on. Just start off by being AWARE.

Next thing we can do is realise that what has happened has happened OR what is going to happen may or may not happen BUT we have no CONTROL over any of it. Speeding ticket or not, whatever the outcome is, it is going to be just that. Worrying about it will change nothing. The only thing worrying about it will change is your mindset and your emotional state. Worrying about it more may make the situation that may not even have been an issue, worse. You are creating more problems for yourself when you worry.

We need to learn finally to STOP worrying because no matter what you believe in or think you know, YOU HAVE NO CONTROL over anything that has gone, or anything that hasn’t happened yet. If the world wants to teach you a lesson it will. You cannot escape experiences that are necessary in your life by trying to outsmart it. It does not work 🙂

What will happen, will ALWAYS happen…

Learn to let go of all fears, you have no control. Trust in your journey and learn from your lessons. Accept all things good and bad as just experiences. The more we experience and learn from this physical world the more we can take with us when we leave.

Lastly, DEPRESSION and ANXIETY are caused by worrying. Worrying about the past or worrying about what could happen in the future. THEY are not mental illnesses that are caused by anything else but attachment and worry with a bit of overthinking thrown in for good measure. LET GO of all fears, they are not real.

False

YES FEAR. IT IS NOT REAL. IT IS CREATED IN YOUR MIND AND YOUR MIND ONLY.

Be present and be accepting of what is to come or merely what has already been. Let go of all fears and have a balanced mindset. Be kind to yourself and do not create STRESS where it is not needed in your life. Life is full of problems, it is supposed to be. The more we focus on problems the more we see. The more problems we see, the more we create. Focus on the positives and just ACCEPT the negatives that come with life and get on with it.

Trust In Your Journey…

Life is full of ups and down.

Somedays are just plain horrible whilst other days are absolutely awesome. This is not determined by the way you feel and what mood you are in, there are supposed to be a variety of ups and downs in your day to day lives.

Life is all about balance. From the night comes the day. From the good comes the bad. From the potato comes a chip (fries). Everything natural always has an opposing side.

Life should be balanced.

Today Id like to just help you understand why life has it ups and downs and why you should just let them come into your life wether they are good or bad and just trust life to keep flowing.

Life is all about experience. Its about having and learning from as many different experiences as possible, as the more things we learn, the more things we have to take away with us when we ascend and leave this physical dimension. We came to earth as a soul, we incarnated into a human as a baby and we had a pre written plan of action all decided before we got here, to complete be we die and return to the source. So the more we learn the better off we will be when we leave. Money, cars, clothes and all material things are not experiences that you can take with you, so they are useless things to focus on. They are not part of your journey and will not contribute anything to your life other than to deceive and distract you from your real life path.

So with life being based around experiences wether they are emotional, physical, psychological or spiritual etc they will all bring different aspects to your life and allow you to learn something different from each and everyone of them. You have to understand that we as humans tend to learn better from feeling pain. This is why when people break the law they are punished mentally and physically in correctional facilities for long periods of time. Time in solitary brings many people great amounts of psychological, mental and emotional pain. This is the way the system uses to teach people lessons. Your life is much the same. If it wants you to experience something and to learn from the experience it will usually decide to take a huge shit on you, period. We learn quicker this way even if it pains us.

So I want you to take from this blog that it is ok to be hurt by experiences in your life.

They are being placed there on your path to help you learn which in the long run you will gain from. Some people suffer from a crazy amount of losses and bad experiences over a short period of time and think there life is done for or over but this is not the case. Maybe its because they learn so fast. They go from one lesson to another so quickly it appears that they are always suffering. (If the suffering is related to each individual incident, not if you are suffering with depression etc) Don’t worry as this is a blessing in disguise. They most likely are flying through all there lessons now so in the future they can have a much easier time. Some people also have lessons spread out over larger periods of time which can appear to some people like they are always ok and never have an periods of learning or suffering, but don’t worry they still do its just spread out.

The speed in which we get these experiences or lessons is dependant on where you are at on your journey. It is also dependant on what incarnation you are in and what stage you are at in your souls evolution. We must trust that our soul is guiding us on the right path that we need to go down in this life. We must trust that with the bad comes the good. Not all lessons are bad and will cause suffering its just that most of the time we chose to ignore the nicer lessons we are given so we are punished with bad ones. Learn to spot all the potential lessons that you are getting thrown at you in your day to day life. Decoded the signs and work on things as soon as you notice them. Trust that you are on the right path and that you are becoming a better person everyday. When life choses to take away from you, understand that life is still about balance and that it will definitely give you something back. When something goes bad, trust that something good is coming. I think a positive state of mind is important at all times. When something bad does happen to us in life and you continue to prolong an ill state of mind you will just attract more negativity and pain in your life.

So, trust that your journey knows what you need and where you need to go. Let your life flow and allow it to flower and fruit naturally in front of you. You have ZERO control over what happens no matter how careful you think you are being. Life WILL find lessons to teach you and give you the experiences you need to have before you leave. Be one with your soul, let your life flow like a river and just embrace it. Let bad experiences come and go and be ready to accept all great things to also come and go as they please. Like i said before do not focus on trying to control it, you cannot do so. Just let it flow and go with it. Be present, be grateful and be positive.

Trust in your journey and if it has been bad recently, just BE PATIENT and allow it work itself out. Remember from the BAD comes the good. Open your heart, be loving always and be grateful of everything in your life.

Rumi – You have to keep breaking your heart, until it opens…

Dont be afraid to keep failing or too keep feeling pain, it will only make you stronger in the long run. The more pain you feel now, the less you will feel later on in life if you LEARN from it 🙂

Everything is in place, accept the challenges and keep pushing through. There is always light at the end of the tunnel if you have a pure heart.

Life is like a…

I want you to quite simply think of your life and your life experiences as a burning hot fire…

A fire is both good and bad. It produces heat that can save life or end it. It can be extremely destructive and cause darkness and destruction or it can be controlled and tamed to produce a wonderful source of light. Fire is BOTH good and bad.

Think of the way you deal with life as a fire. You can jump into the fire and burn yourself. You can steer clear of a fire and feel nothing. And finally you can dance with the fire, feeling it’s heat, using its energy and quite simply understanding it without it causing any harm whatsoever.

Now what does this have to do with life???

Everything.

You can be reckless and inpatient. You can be angry and spiteful. You can rude and uncaring. You can be the darkness and the poison. All of these actions and emotions you allow to enter your life and take over you are exactly like running into a hot fire and either burning yourself or dying. You will get nowhere in life acting like this. You are just producing a huge amount of karma and issues that you don’t need to be continuously dealing with.

You can also be scared and insecure. You can be lazy and negative. You can be comfortable and easy going. You can be unbothered and uninterested. These feelings and actions would lead you to walk around the fire and to steer clear of it completely. This way of life will give you no experience or gain. You don’t learn unless you are curious and interested. This is basically like being on auto pilot and riding through life just being comfortable. This style of life is pointless, it creates no success.

Finally you could be understanding and loving. You could be patient and curious. You can be adventurous and aware. You can positive and helpful. These feelings and emotions would lead you to dance with the fire. To dance with the fire you can learn the fire. Learning about the fire and what it can do will greatly increase your chances of success in life. The fire brings light, it brings energy, it brings warmth and happiness. The fire is a useful tool but it does require a little understanding, patience and effort to learn how to dance with it. It is not for the lazy or the non doers in life. Take risks in life and be ready to feel a burn here and there but just be knowing that you will eventually be able to control and cradle the fire for your needs and growth.

You choose your path in life. Don’t be upset if it doesn’t go the way you want it to go. Evaluate your actions and beliefs. Could you be a kinder person? More adventurous? Harder working? More considerate? Selfless?

All actions have consequences. Think about what you are manifesting isn’t your own existence. Be conscious of your actions. Every actions has an equal reaction, remember that…

Be wise

Don’t tell lies

Take a chance

And learn to dance

The True Cause & Cure To Insecurity

Nowadays it seems like a very large percentage of the population suffer with insecurity issues. The majority of this percentage will firstly not admit they are at all insecure but even if they do, they will proceed to blame this insecurity issue on someone else.

It is his fault I am like this, I wasn’t like this before…

What I am about to say is 100% a fact, it is YOUR fault you are like this nobody else’s. Bare with me for a moment and let me see if I can help you understand why.

Insecurity stems from the emotion fear. It is created by you because you do not have enough self love for yourself. Society has majorly influenced this state of mind up on you but it is purely up to you to change this way of feeling or thinking. Social media, movies, music, fashion etc etc are all powered by money. Without money none of these things would exist. To make money they must first take YOUR money. To do so they sell a fake way of life. An unreal way of living and a completely unnatural desire to look a certain way to be accepted. Society is like a cult, if you cant be apart of it then you will be rejected and bullied. People strive daily to consciously and unconsciously fit into society. We buy fancy cars, houses, clothes, make up, shoes, bags etc etc We become members to societies, groups and clubs just to rank higher in a pretend social society. We force ourselves to do uncomfortable things and spend ridiculous amounts of money just to FIT IN. We think this is normal, but it is so far from normal.

I mean who is Michael Kors and what are those watches all about? You bought the watches, then you bought the bags and now you are buying cameras from MK’s??? I am a professional photographer and il tell you for free I would NEVER even consider buying a bloody camera from MK’s… What on earth is happening? You are being constantly suckered in to WANT TO FIT IN. You don’t need or most likely truly don’t even like the things you buy, but you still continue to do so. You do all of this to fit in because if you didn’t, nobody would look at you, talk to you, care about you and you’d lose friends etc THAT is the truth 100%.

So society shapes you this way and its all because you FEAR not fitting in or being accepted by other people. This is insecurity. The lack of faith and belief in yourself as a pure and NAKED human being. Take away the make up, the handbags, the heels and the clothes, who are you???

WHO ARE YOU REALLY?

Do you really want to go through life wasting time and money buying these things just to feel wanted? You shouldn’t have to and it doesn’t have to be this way. Your FAKE ways bring you FAKE friends and you live in a FAKE life that will bring you nothing.

Now we have that understanding out the way and hopefully understood we need to find out how we can fix our issues. Yes it is an issue and the only way to make progression personally is to firstly accept that you do have a problem. Just like anxiety and depression, insecurity is just as big of a mental illness. Ive seen plenty of people break down over being insecure. Ive also seen people create huge huge problems in other peoples lives around them as they cannot bare to deal with their own issues. So, save yourself money, time and problems by learning this simple technique and way of life which you can start putting into action TODAY!!!

Insecurity is simply LACK OF SELF LOVE. Yes, you do not love yourself at all, or enough. Once you fully teach yourself to fully ACCEPT and LOVE yourself you will never feel insecure ever again.

So how do we start?

Saying and doing are two completely different things. Saying – I LOVE MYSELF is easy, actually 100% feeling the love is a different thing. We can start off small and work towards infinitely feeling loved by ourselves. At first it will take some time like anything that is worth doing, there is no quick fix. Be patient and just be willing to want to change.  Firstly I want you to understand, life is pretty much written. The family you chose at birth, the school you went too, the friends that surround you were already supposed to be. Insecurity was supposed to be if you do suffer from it, but if you are reading this then id imagine you are on a path to find a fix. So now you know life is practically written (plus some free will thrown in for a bit of extra experience) you will understand that if you put in the effort in life and try hard you will find what you are looking for. (If you do not believe then believe it for the sake of this) Most of us in life are looking for the perfect partner. Even if right this moment you are not thinking about that, one day you will most likely realise that this is a major part of your journey. We want the perfect person and feel like we will do anything to achieve this. The TRUTH is the prefect person IS out there for you. The TRUTH is that perfect person WILL accept you for who you are in your REAL and NATURAL state. The REAL you will attract the REAL partner. The fake you will only ever ever ever ever ever attract the wrong person. They were attracted to you with make up on, with fake eyelashes on, with those fancy clothes on etc etc THAT IS NOT YOU. Ever been with a partner who doesn’t treat you the same when you don’t have your hair done, make up done and you are dressed in an unattractive way? Of course you have. The guy is attracted to the fake you, the real you…not so much. Why would you not want to be able to be free, relaxed and comfortable and STILL be looked at or treated the same? I have always accepted partners the way they are, without make up, baggy clothes, dealt with them farting in front of me or leaving skids and poo on the bottom of the toilet. It is them in their natural state, if you like or love them, they should be able to feel like they can just be. So, you can be natural and you can fart in front of your partner if they full love and accept you etc What you need to understand is that if you cannot do these things, that person you are with is THE WRONG PERSON, hands down 100% not the right one for you. You may think he/she is and you may WANT them BUT they are wrong, FACT.

Now we have cleared that up and you are attracting the wrong people you need to attract the real people. Like i said before you need to be the natural you. Until you let your guard down and stop being dressed up in pointless expensive material things that ‘make you feel better about yourself’ you wont learn to self love and you wont find your perfect partner. There is a great saying that springs to my mind when thinking about this and it is –

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear…

This is basically saying when you have learnt to self love properly you will find just what you have been looking for. An honest you will find an honest partner.

So quite simply you need to drop the fake you, let go of all material egoistic crap in your life you use to cover up your insecurities and just be natural. Next you need to accept that when you are real, life will be real with you. If you are going to portray yourself as a lie, with make up etc you will only attract a lying partner too. This is simply the law of attraction, you manifest what you give out. You will get back just what you put out there.  Next you need to say –

I am who I am. I know who I am and what I am capable of and thats all I need to know…

You then ACCEPT fully who you are what you LOOK like. This is you, you are unique, there is nobody that can be you or look like you. How wonderful is that? You are special and you are totally original. Don’t worry about people that may leave you or perceive you in a different way, they are fake friends or people you don’t need in your life. Ditch those that are like this and make some new friends. Friends that are as real as you are. They are the only friends you will ever need around you. Realise fully that you are perfect in every way. When you realise this your real friends will accept you for who you are and your real partner will do so too. Stop worrying about your nose, your mole, your hairline or you body shape, they are actually all perfect pieces to your unique make up and they are there to attract the real guy or girl you want in your life. Idolising celebs is just plain stupid. How many girls out there used to or still fancy Chris Brøwn? Of course there are loads, but imagine having him as boyfriend? He’d bite you, punch you in the face and cheat on you within a day. If you don’t know what Im talking about a few years back he beat up and bit Rihanna, another music artist. Is that the kind of relationship you are after? Of course not, you are just idolising the way some looks from a material and egoistic perspective. Drop these habits. Just being attractive means nothing. You don’t know who these people are or what they are like inside. Be realistic and be truthful to yourself.

So finally, stop chasing fake people and unrealistic desires. Be real and be true to yourself. Stop using material things to cover up how you feel about yourself. Be natural and be attractive naturally. You are you, you are not your handbag, your shoes or your car. Let the inner you flow and don’t be afraid to be weird. I LOVE weird, weird is wonderful. I cannot stand fake things, people or material objects. Start slowly and make small changes until you can fully understand that you don’t need anything to stand out. Start by taking off the watch, your phone has the time. And then just work up slowly until you can get rid of everything you don’t need! I have a friend that drives a very nice Mercedes, he carries his belongings in a Tesco bag! Why? Because why not, who does he have to prove anything too? The grocery bag does just as good as job as any other bag would. There is no need to spend money just to show off or to fit in.

Let us be free of our insecurities. Let us be SELF AWARE and let us ACCEPT OURSELVES for who we truly are.

I hope this wasn’t too long winded but I felt that to understand this issue truly and deeply was as important as finding the cure for it.

P.S Im sitting in costa coffee at the very front of the shop. I keep relaxing closing my eyes and drifting off into miniature meditations. Can people see me? Of course they can, do I give a shit, NO 🙂 Peoples opinions mean nothing, your own opinion means everything. None of these peoples views or opinions of me matter at all. I will be who I wish to be, if I can attract other weirdos then cool, lets be WEIRD TOGETHERRRRR 🙂

Be TRUE. Be REAL. Be CONFIDENT. Be LOVED.

You Can Lead A Horse To Water…

Paulo Coelho, the great author of one of my favourite books – The Alchemist, once said, “Don’t waste your time with explanation. People only listen to what they want to hear.”

This is a great and true saying. People will only listen to what they want to listen to, no matter how hard you try to change them.

In this article Id like to talk about how you are wasting your time trying to help people who do not wish to be helped.

We all want to help, well most of us do. We try to guide others to help them avoid failure and misery as much as we can but it doesn’t always work. Why? The truth is, everyone is on their own journey. They simply are who they are. If you ever manage to change someone that actually never physically asked to change, the change will never last. Ive seen people go months with a completely different attitude and mindset to life and it was pleasant to see. Ive also seen these people suddenly change back to just how they were when they started out before you offered your guidance. The truth is, you wasted your time. You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. People often get stuck in their ways and believe they understand life and can deal with it just fine. Im not here to judge people on right and wrong but most of the time these people are fronting that they are ok and they are doing just fine. These same people I’ve seen suffering with insecurities, lack of self love, depression, anxiety and all sorts of confusions about what is going on in their world. You see their weaknesses, sometimes you expose them for them to see, sometimes they fight back, other times they accept it and try to change. 99% of the time even if you get a slight glimpse of hope that they can progress, they regress and go back to just how they were.

The only people who can truly change are the ones that WANT to change themselves.

These are the people you and I can help. You cannot chose who you wish to change, they kind of have to chose you!

I say, offer your help to everyone. If they want it, they will take it, if they don’t then don’t worry about it. We have all tried to help those that we TRULY CARE about but it just doesn’t work like that. We have to let them do what they want and thats all we can do. You and I both no that slandering others for example is wrong, it shows lack of self love, judgment from the ego and insecurity but does the person that is doing so truly understand this? Do they even care? Do they want to learn how to self love and not be so insecure and judgmental anymore? The answer is, it doesn’t matter. You have to just let people be. We must not make judgements of others or try and fix them without their consent. Maybe they are supposed to stay broken… It is probably their journey.

Focus on you and you only until somebody truly wants your help. We naturally care for others but trust me, you will only waste time and energy trying to fix something that wants to stay broken. The suffering around us feels so real and the people seem so lost… its just how they have to be. It is right for their journey at this current moment in time.

Lastly do not be angered by the people that throw help back in your face. We’ve all had it happen to us. Its ok. Let them be angry, let them be spiteful, let karma teach them a lesson 🙂 Trust in the universe, trust in your soul and LOVE unconditionally. JUST BE.

Be Grateful

Be True 

BeLIEVE In Yourself 

And Love All That Can Be Loved 🙂

Listen To Your Heart – Not Your Head!!!

In day to day life we are confronted with many opportunities to make decisions. Unfortunately many people struggle with this process due to fear, fear of making the wrong or incorrect decision.

The simple reason this happens is because of duality. Duality is when two almost contrasting things happen at the same time. It maybe that this duality is a good thing or a bad thing, but in this instance it becomes an issue and an annoyance. There seems to be a strong dichotomy between the HEART and the MIND which continues to create imbalances in our thought process.

There is no on and off switch in the mind. Most of the time we cannot even tell the difference between the heart and the mind when you ask for guidance or when you ask yourself to make a decision. We usually get an initial heart response followed by a logical brain response that will completely override our initial thought process.

Today Id like to help you learn to make the right decisions. Your heart always has the right answer, always. Your mind is not the friend you think it is. It will happily lead you astray and to places you never wanted to go. Curiosity killed that cat. Remember that!

Do not mind, the mind.

Try to stop the mind from controlling your true decisions and feelings. The mind will always lie to you, its kind of like the government. How? Well the government are more than willing to tell you some truths just to get you on their side. They sucker you in, make you feel like they protect you and care for you and when they have you under their control, BAM they lie to you and induce fear into your heart and life. The reason they get away with appearing that they never lied to you is because they lured you in with a high percentage of truth and facts etc You believe they are honest and you put your trust into them so when they do decide to tell lies, you don’t believe they are lies, you believe they are honest and that they wouldn’t do such a thing to you.

Your mind works very much the same way. Sometimes it helps you make safe logical decisions, those small practical decisions like not to head butt the window or to jump into a fire. You believe your mind is there for you and has your back. The problem is, is that it doesn’t have your back, it is your enemy. How crazy does that sound? MAD right? Wrong. The mind is very much powered by the ego. The ego WANTS to control you, its wants to survive inside of you and will do whatever it takes to do so. The ego is both good and bad. When you are young the ego wants to teach you, this is a good thing, it is something we need. As we get older we should try and drop the ego and learn to let it not control us. The ego makes us do silly things like when we get angry and we lose control or when we feel hurt and we act spitefully etc etc The ego becomes more of a problem the older and wiser we become. We must learn to control it or it will continue to control us. It lives in duality with the heart and they both fight for the right to speak. Unfortunately the heart is much quieter than the mind and usually always loses if you are untrained to differentiate between the two voices. 

Do not allow the mind to continue to sabotage your ability to understand or experience the truth. Forget logic, the truth and the right way for YOU to do things isn’t always logical. Life doesn’t need to be logical. I know you are thinking, of course it does! NO. Look, you spend life searching for love, love has no logical meaning, definition or explanation it is just LOVE. You want it, you yearn for it and you will do anything to feel it. Love is not logical and you run after it! So don’t tell me life has to be logical at all 🙂

Forget logic and stop allowing the mind to question your hearts response to a question or  decision it has to make. It may seem initially illogical but it will always work out. Go with your heart always. You will not regret it!

Lastly your mind and ego will make hasty regrettable decisions for you when you are in a place of hurt. This is when you are most vulnerable to a potential sabotage by your ego. Be patient when you are angry and upset, hold off, even if it is really hard to do so. You will most likely end up making the worst decision of your life and potentially get yourself into a bigger mess. Teach yourself to remain calm and listen to your heart when you have withdrawn from the problem that is causing the pain.

P.S Your mind has been there with you since you where born. It WILL be hard to retrain yourself to think or to make decisions BUT you can do it.

Trust you heart, trust your journey and be loving always.

Act out of order, or make a bad decision will only lead to creating bad karma for yourself. 

Much love

Yours truly
