    You may start with resting in 'I am,' and feeling your sense of being that is beyond thinking. And that may turn into witnessing. And witnessing may turn into 'everything simply is,' the sense of no separation between you and the world.
    The evolution of one’s self through the process of awakening within the dream of all dreams comes forward at this time to timestamp this day, entering into 2015 and moving forward into 2016. This transformational time is a time of bringing forward the awakening thoughts into your mind, heart and spirit to find those thoughts of truth seeding themselves into your lives. It is the time to start separating yourself from the future, freeing yourself to embrace it and to let go of the past that is blocking you from seeing your way forward, cementing the way into the future by closing the door of the past.

    Truth vs Illusion

    In life, there is always this misconception of truth and a refusal to believe that you can see the illusion. That may sound confusing at first, but the truth is, that the truth is harder to find in your life because you must seek it out and the illusion is easier to find. It is the easier road to take because illusion is placed in your life for you. There are many factors that take away the truth in your life and replace it with illusion and the biggest factor in our view is fear.

    Forced Connections vs Choice Connections

    As you have forced connections and choice connections in your life, the purpose of your life is to diminish the forced connections and increase the choice connections. It is meant to free yourself of having to have forced connections, of having to go through situations just to get through. Life will never be simple, but choosing a different perspective to view it in will make it less and less difficult to function. You have the power within to decide what your life will look like, who will be in that life, who you choose to have a relationship or connection with.

    Offensive Living Vs. Defensive Living

    Are you learning out of love or are you reacting to life’s situations out of fear?

    Reaching The Pure Peace of Nothingness in Meditation

    In meditation, you learn to stop paying attention to the content of thoughts and begin to rest your attention on the awareness that is aware of thoughts.

    Awareness & Nothingness

    Whatever you resist, whatever you remain unconscious to or distract yourself from continues to hurt you, continues to dictate your life and lead you further into separation and stress. The moment you can be honest of its presence and allow it completely, then awareness transforms it into peace.

    Transcending Thinking in Meditation

    You can let go of the thoughts your are involved with. You don't let go of the thought to grab something else. Rather, you just rest in letting go. You rest in that place of not holding on to anything. Then you are no longer a something. You are formless consciousness.

    Do you ever have conversations with yourself?

    I don't mean like hearing voices but more like thinking about things and questioning yourself? Or going over an important decision that you have to make again and again? This kind of conversation with yourself will not help you to solve your problems or make good decisions and is not productive or helpful.

    What Shakespeare Can Teach Us About Enlightenment

    When I was an undergraduate at university many years ago, my deep enjoyment and love for the works of William Shakespeare blossomed. I had the privilege of taking a Shakespearean class and then during one summer in my undergraduate years, I was able to travel through Europe inexpensively on a bike and a Europass to see the great sites. A memory I remember most is going to Stratford-upon-Avon and watching a William Shakespeare play. I don?t know where my passion and love for his plays comes from but it has been a deep part of my life. His writings have also taught me many things
