Human Destiny Revealed at the End of the Yellow Brick Road

Published

on

One of life’s most enduring mysteries is that of human destiny.

Many a philosopher have debated whether it’s an invention of human thought or if our long-standing curiosity is a mechanism of evolution (creation in process) designed to propel humanity forward.

“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.”

— Leonardo DiCaprio

Regardless of what you believe, what seems to be universal is the calling by your soul to fulfill your personal destiny once you awaken enough to hear it.

It used to be you were born one character per lifetime, living and dying the same. Helped by society, people stayed in the lane they were born. Indoctrination now begins as early as two and three years of age; young children pushed into “structured” group settings call preschool.

Programming the child from an early age to become a good worker and consumer, our education system dumbs down natural-born creative inner genius (divergent thinking) from 98% in children to less than 2% by adulthood, a study has proven.

Only a handful of notable individuals have scaled Maslow’s Hierarchy of Self-Actualization to free themselves of the confinement of culture and conditioning to live out a life of creative genius each one of us is gifted at birth.

Because these courageous women and men paid attention, they lived out a personal destiny so extraordinary relative to the masses that all of humanity felt the ground shiver with unlimited possibility when they spoke, wrote, or graced the world with their presence.

What’s Your Destiny?

The reality is, very few are courageous enough to break voluntarily from herd mentality.

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”

— Yoda

We fear to have a destiny as much as we fear not having one. We fear failure. We fear greatness. We simply fear change. Fear is the #1 reason people wallow in misery rather than dare to make simple changes that would improve the quality of their life dramatically.

Why? People hang onto what’s familiar rather than let go for the unknown — even if could mean the end of suffering.

Maybe you’re trying to discover your creative inner genius… or break away from a miserable job… or find meaning and purpose in your life… or just be happy and at peace.

Trust Life

It’s okay to be afraid — just don’t get stuck there. Fearlessness is for fools. Courage’s true definition is sticking around even when you are very afraid.

And if you refuse change?

Change becomes dramatic upheaval when you don’t review your thoughts, words, and actions continuously (conscious living) to see if you are serving not only your personal well-being but the well-being of everyone in your field of influence. This is self-leadership.

If you don’t self-correct, life steps in.

This goes for institutions, too. We are witnessing dramatic upheaval in the world because the negative benefits of a society built out of separation consciousness are no longer sustainable. The more you or groups of like-minded individuals fight to preserve tradition, the greater the human suffering.

“If you’re receptive and open, you’ll see it’s okay to relax, take your hands off the wheel, and trust life.” ~ TWEET THIS

Your journey is unique, but its aspects are common to everyone. It may give you comfort to understand what’s happening as you continue to awaken to the miraculous within. Your destiny and humanity’s destiny are one and the same.

Our Universal Hero’s Journey

The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy perfectly illustrates the hero’s journey as identified by American scholar Joseph Campbell.

Our heroine consciously chooses to take a journey into the heart of darkness and the unknown, where things get pretty wild. Dorothy has her moments of fear and self-doubt, but notice she receives exactly the right support at the right time to push through. And so will you.

After Dorothy realizes the pigpen of the limited life she’s fallen into, she ditches it for bigger and better things. Along the way, Dorothy runs into self-doubt’s Professor Marvel, who dissuades her from making any changes in her life. Life honours Dorothy’s “yes” to her soul’s swansong, sending an F5 tornado to whisk her away to new lands.

Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, quickly appears to guide her. But, in a dualistic third dimension — if there is the light of your Higher Self, there is the ego’s dark side, the Wicked Witch of the West, to make life rough for you because you’ve killed her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East, weakening ego’s hold over you.

Signposts

In the nick of time, a sign appears — physical proof all things work for the good. You’ve been endowed with the ruby red slippers previously belonging to ego, taking back some of your power.

Appearing to lack a way back to Kansas, she follows Glinda’s prompt to step upon the path of enlightenment as she seeks wisdom outside of herself that will guide her home.

Down the yellow brick road, she meets the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion. They are Mind, Body, and Spirit. They join her on the journey as external characters, but really, Dorothy must unite consciously all three to make her final discovery.

Don’t Get Distracted

The foursome stops along the way to admire a beautiful field of colourful poppies that distract them so much they completely fall back under the spell of Maya (separation consciousness). The shiny things in your life are technology, relationship drama, and busyness that distract you from renewing your connection to Source each day through reflection and meditation.

Alas, once Dorothy reaches the Wizard, she is sent off on an errand to retrieve the witch’s broomstick. As long as you search outside yourself for what is found within, ego will send you on an endless loop of things to “do,” known as struggle, to reach your goals.

You will repeatedly crash and burn — your dark night of the soul — until you finally see that struggle (ego) has gotten you nowhere. Notice, the Universe keeps sending you unconditional gifts and signs until you realize that the Source of Life and Life are the same. This is your shift from separation to unity consciousness.

Thus, it is revealed that separation from Source is an illusion. Glinda, the Good Witch, confirms Dorothy always had the power to go “home.” The struggle was the removal of the veil via direct experience.

Intertwined and inseparable is collective human destiny as we converge as One in perfect union with the Infinite. This is our destiny. Home is our return to Source — without going anywhere at all.

Your brilliant moment is when you realize there is nothing to do and nowhere to go. You already are that which you seek. All are found within you, given freely to you as a gift.

Know this, and you’ve just created Heaven on Earth.

You are already brilliant.

You are already perfect.

You are already Home.

Can you feel it?

Have You Realized The Profundity Of Our True Nature?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we typically move about, seeing all material for what we define it as. This makes things convenient in a way, but there is a profoundness to not only seeing beyond these definitions, but also tapping back into full potential.

  • Reflect On:

    Have you ever tried practicing the awareness that you are not your mind nor your body? Why do we identify so strongly with just our physical body, and is it time to begin to remember we are much more than that?

Who we really are has been staring us in the face the whole time.

Take a look at your body, but look at it from a completely impersonal perspective; free of any thought about it at all. Without labels like arms and legs; without any sense of ownership, just as it is. Look in the mirror at your face, your eyes, but look without the thinking mind. This body that you get to use and throw around the joint, is a product of the universe. Conditions were apparently perfect here on Earth for Humans to exist. A magnificent sculpture, carved from stardust, gases, cells, minerals, heat – one of the most complex arrangements of cells and energy you have ever laid your eyes upon.

There is no boundary to the human body; there is no “in here” and “out there.” The body is a constant flow of energy, never a stationary or permanent thing we could pin down. There is a constant flow of air coming in and out, molecules by our skin, bacteria breaking down food in our stomach, there is no boundary between the body and the environment. It’s like a river, never the same body of water in any two moments.

Then, how about all the stuff the body perceives. All the sounds, tastes, smells, visual images and so on. The human body makes the whole world we’re privy to. The brain selects a very narrow band of frequencies and constructs reality according to the bandwidth of what our senses relay for us. The visual spectrum is only a very narrow band, while other sentient beings select out different bands for their viewing pleasure. So reality as we know it, never exists objectively, only subjectively through the being that is observing it. Without an observer what does it exist as? Just a soup of frequencies I suppose.

I find this phenomenal! There are little reality bubbles existing wherever a sentient being is alive. Energy has coalesced into the form of a human being, a giraffe, an ant, a butterfly, a chameleon, an amoeba, and through these configurations, the universe is observing itself. It is having experiences with itself.

1619136_420984308034739_245289130_nSo essentially, the whole world that you exist in – the reality bubble that you spend your entire life in – is entirely made by the human body. Your human body. Everything, all of it. Look at the image your eyes are creating. Look at how immaculate, perfect and impeccably high the resolution is! Check out how infinite the colour palette is. Take another look in the mirror at the wonder of your eyes. Those things stuck in that head, those things that we call eyes are absolutely wondrous biological organs, composed of trillions of living cells; living in harmony, being fed by the fuel you place in your mouth. Those things are taking frequencies of energy, sending it at light speed to your brain, where trillions more cells convert it into a picture. WOW!

And while I’m on that subject: have you ever wondered how electrical signals in the brain – how realistically an infinite amount of neurons in our brain – can create the conscious experience of sound out of electrical impulses? How does something biological turn electricity into the conscious experience of smell? Into the emotion of love, of anger?

So look around you. Look what you’re part of. You’re on a planet zooming through space at hundreds of kilometres per second, circling around in a gigantic galaxy. You’re amongst animals, forests, bodies of water, lightning, rain, drought, plants and soil. You’re amongst life! You’re seeing it unfold right before your eyes, seeing life in all its animation. I don’t see why it should seem like there’s anything else to do, other than admire what we’re amongst, and create.

Just as the bus motors down the street, so too does the galaxy arms revolve around its core. A child eats breakfast, while an asteroid erupts as it passes through an atmosphere. We are as much an expression of this universe as the plants and galaxies. This universe has arranged itself in such complex ways, in such exquisite patterns, so that it may know itself through our eyes. We have become an aperture for energy to know what it inherently is.

When we look deeper into our own nature, we find that things are even more extraordinary than what exists in the physical realm of bodies, animals, plants and stars.

There is this notion of separation in our society, where we exist separately from the outside world of other stuff. We are separate from the table, our house, other people and the whole cosmos. We feel this too, because we feel that we are the human body, or the thinker somewhere in the head. But this notion is learnt, cultivated, but not all cultures prescribe to this way of being at all.

The whole world is consciousness; it all exists within, not out there somewhere. This is the worldview slowly being ushered in by quantum mechanics and eastern traditions. They’ve arrived now at the same point, but there is obvious resistance because the old system composed of survival-of-the-fittest, authority, institutions and competition rely on our illusory separateness for vitality.

Consciousness is the way in which biological functions of firing neurons in the brain are turned into a conscious experience. Consciousness is something transcendent of the physical world, and is therefore never affected by the  realm of form. It is so perfect and complete already, not needing fulfillment or healing in any way.

The thing is, most of us don’t feel this way though. We still feel separate, small, incomplete and not an integrated part of the whole. We still feel like we are locked up inside a head looking out at separate stuff. But there are ways in which consciousness can shift and identify with something much deeper. The first step is usually quieting the mind through meditation. Our thoughts have run rampant, and we’ve taken this incessant internal monologue to be who we are. But if you do one session of meditation, you’ll see that the mind comes in all by itself, starts up fantasies, conversations, judgments and memories all by itself, while you are trying to focus on your breath. While you’re trying to be silent, the mind has other ideas. Meditation shows us we aren’t the thinker at all; it shows us that we are the witnessing presence OF thought.

A thought is as much a sensation as the taste of ice cream is; we’ve just placed too much emphasis and belief in thought. So rather than identifying consciousness with something superimposed upon it (the mind, the “small self”, the ego) we can shine the light back in on itself via techniques like meditation, and identify as pure consciousness itself. We become not only the witnesser of all sensation, but we merge with it, just as we did with the mind. The feeling of self shifts from the mind with all its thoughts and ideas about the world, to sensation. And sensation is essentially the universe! You become the whole universe.

When Is The Last Time You Were GENUINELY Yourself? If You’re Still Thinking About It, Read This.

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Some of us go our entire lives without truly being ourselves. There may be many reasons for it, but we often find ourselves living via others' expectations or approval.

  • Reflect On:

    When was the last time you noticed yourself hold back or be different than YOU because you were worried about what someone may think or do? Worried about challenging someone? Perhaps just appeasing people's egos?

Being 100% authentic to who you are, and at peace with it. Living from the Heart. Feeling comfortable within yourself. At all times. With everyone. No matter what “people dynamics” you are exposed to.

Now that’s a tough one for an ego who needs the approval, love and acceptance of others. Inner-peace sure is conditional when we are afraid to have our mind and its beliefs challenged in one way or another. But instead of basing our actions and state of being according to the fears, worries and desires of our ego, what we should ask our heart instead is:

Is it really worth it to compromise our natural state for the sake of appeasing the ego of others? Is it worth it to step away from our natural state and rather buy into our own egoic beliefs and fears?

The truth is, when others are truly comfortable and at peace with themselves, they won’t need you to change who you are. And when you are truly comfortable and at peace within yourself, you don’t need others to change who they are. Only the ego does.

When you have reached a state of utmost clarity and inner-peace, the only thing that can really make sense… is to BE who you truly are!

So the bottom line is, when you are authentic and at peace within yourself, YES, there will always be egos challenged by you, yet there will always be souls INSPIRED by you. In both cases, it is as perfect as it can get 😉

Is Synchronicity A Glimpse Into The 4th Dimension?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The idea of dimensions was first spoken about in the mid 1700s by Joseph-Louis Lagrange, it was later a part of Einstein's various theories.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we limited to what we experience dimensionally based on where we are dimensionally? Are we not able to easily see or interact with 4th dimensional beings due to our existence in the third?

Currently, the world is going through a transition. This could either be the effect of the current communication revolution or be the cause of the current communication revolution, depending on how you view things. To define the communication revolution, I am speaking about the way we have rapidly changed our means of communication through smart devices and social media.

This phenomena seems old, but has actually only been around for less than a decade, with it really becoming the norm in the last 5 or so years. This has allowed people to communicate in a way that was not previously possible and despite the obvious flaws of smart devices and social media, it has allowed ideas to circulate like never before, and has lowered the degrees of separation between people.

The six degrees of separation is a 1929 concept from Frigyes Karinthy that says we have just 6 steps between ourselves and any other living being on the planet. Well, due to the communication revolution, those 6 degrees are probably closer to 2 or 3. If I look to my own social media and network, I have Peruvian Shaman on my friends list and a Tribesman from Gabon in Africa.

Many of the people I have collaborated with are in the United States and Canada (I am from the UK) and I have managed with relative ease to communicate with people who would be considered a “celebrity” through a simple Facebook introduction. This is all new and something that did not exist just a few short years ago.

I see this as a more scientific and rational reason for what many would describe as a mass spiritual awakening. Many people are being exposed to ideas that were not available before or hidden in small pockets of the world for only a few to see.

One of the buzzwords that have been circulating relating to spiritual awakening is “stepping into the 4th dimension” or “4th dimensional beings” and this is something I would like to discuss in this article.

What Is The 4th Dimension

The easiest way to visualize the 4th dimension is to start with the lower dimensions and work our way up. The start is a singular point which cannot be seen with no up, no down, no left and no right. The first dimension from this singular point is when it stretches out and has 2 ends. What we would call a line. This is the dimension of width. The second dimension is when you add 4 of these lines together (making a square) so you would have width and height.

Then the third dimension is when we give the square depth. This is what we would call a cube. This principle works for any shape, but the square was given as a simple visual representation to imagine. So far all of the dimensions have been describing space, however the fourth steps into the realms of time and an object moving in time.

This idea was spoken about in the mid 1700s by Joseph-Louis Lagrange and later worked upon in 1854 by Bernhard Riemann and in 1880 by Charles Howard Hinton. In 1908, Hermann Minkowski presented a paper called Space and Time which became the basis for Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity.

I would just like to say that what I am speaking about is not fully comprehensible as it deals with matter outside of our ability to visualize, so you have to work with this knowing that you cannot imagine the concept, but to just try to imagine what it could be like.

To give another visual representation- we are 3-dimensional beings, yet we see in 2 dimensions. What I mean by this is things appear to be flat through our eyes as if we move them closer or further away the shape and size changes. If you look at a soccer ball for example it resembles a 2-dimensional shape that changes in size depending upon how close it is to us and the depth of this is seen only due to light. However, if we saw it from a 3-dimensional perspective the size would stay the same and we would be able to see the entire ball simultaneously. So when we start to move into the 4th dimension we are talking about movement of time and time in a spatial sense. This is something we are bound too, however, the 4th dimension is not.

To give another visual, imagine a 1st-dimensional being- it would only be able to move left and right. A 2nd dimensional being up, down, left and right. A 3rd dimensional being up, down, left and right, forwards and backwards. This means a 4th-dimensional being would be able to see up, down, left and right, forwards, backwards and every angle simultaneously. In this dimension everything would represent the actual size and as I mentioned earlier this is not necessarily something we can fully visualise. But below is as close as we can get:

A 4th-dimensional being is theoretically something living outside of our known laws of time and space. They would also not be bound to time in the same way we are, meaning time would not be a line with a start and end point, but more like a spiral in which they would be at the center. As an example; a 4th-dimensional being would be able to see both sides of a wall simultaneously, and would be able to move through time. Using the logic of us (as 3-dimensional beings) seeing in 2 dimensions, it would make sense that only a 5th-dimensional being would be able to see time as a whole.

This could very well explain why a 4th-dimensional being would not be detectable using 3-dimensional means of tracking. For example, if a 3-dimensional being was to step into the first dimension where only width is visible, the 3rd-dimensional being would only be visible in width. Meaning only a slice of that being would appear to the 1st-dimensional being and at certain angles nothing would appear in the 1st dimension.

Higher Dimensions Could Struggle To Communicate With Lower

People often say if there were such beings and they were trying to make contact, why would they not have done it. One answer to this is quite simple, maybe they are and we just don’t have the means to understand it. A good example is if a human being tried to communicate with an ant, we could easily make ourselves visible from our understanding of the world, we could even guide the ant or pick it up and force it to go in a specific direction, however that ant may not know that it is some form of life manipulating its movement.

Maybe a higher being communicates in a way that we cannot comprehend. An example of this would be changing weather to try to change the way we act. This could be conceived as a clear form of communication that we are not fully understanding.  

What Is Synchronicity and How The 2 Relate  

Synchronicity is when a series of 2 or more events have a meaningful relationship with each other, what many would call a coincidence, but a coincidence with meaning. These events are often recurring, such as seeing the clock at 11:11 every day or seeing the same animal repeatedly. How could this relate? We could argue that we are all actually part of the same organism. Meaning a human body contains cells, these cells could be looked at as separate, however, they are actually part of the human body.

If you take this logic and apply it to the planet and the beyond you could view us as just singular cells in a larger organism. Given this logic you could argue that we are the cells of a higher dimensional being, and in the same way we would generally want the best for our bodies and minds, these higher dimensional beings would likely want the same for us. Not being bound to time a synchronicity could simply be a communication from (a version of) ourselves, to ourselves trying to explain what we need to do to move forward.
