Take Refuge In Life

You see when faced with difficulty, we have deeply ingrained patterns (conditioning) of taking refuge in our thoughts. We hide out in our thinking. We escape feeling an uncomfortable feeling by spending our energy on thinking of a way to by-pass it. We have constructed highly complex personality structures that are, in effect, simply refuge zones for hiding out from life. The more we retreat, the more we reinforce the castle of personhood with new improved booby-traps, new neuroses to guard against unwanted feelings and emotions. We then hang out in our castles yearning for freedom...

Tail Wags Dog

When you think of a tail wagging a dog you instantly get the feeling that something is the wrong way around, or back to front. Unfortunately, most of us live our lives, at least subtle aspects of them, the wrong way around. We do so by making the simple error of taking our cues from the outside world—the world of content and form—rather than from the inside, Being itself, and thus the tail wags the dog.

Back To Life

Your spiritual path is completely and utterly personalised for YOU. Where is it? It is the very life you are living right now. The life force that is coming back home to you in this moment is presenting itself to you via the situations that you are resisting in your life. Via the churning in your stomach, the aches in your heart. These are all signs of the life force and where it is knocking at that door to get back in. Unfortunately, we ignore this most blessed and treasured of visitors. We turn away to keep looking elsewhere.

Where Is Your Life Force?

What I call life force is the distinct power of life to move attention and give birth to that which it puts its attention on. For example, most people have a huge percentage of their life force stuck in the thinking mechanism, or what I simply call mind. Life force is like a volume button for attention that we turn up when we engage it. So when life force is stuck in the thinking mechanism, our thoughts are amplified, we literally both live in our thoughts/our heads and the lives that are created from that thinking.

Tend The Garden Within

When we finally recognise our True Nature beyond the imposter we held ourselves to be. When all the leaks of life force are sealed. When we break the habit of looking to the unreal, the maya, for the way forward, for ourSelves... then can the life force arise freely within. Nourishing and serving the needs of the organism and watering the seeds of the garden within the heart. Bringing to life, life's own dormant and hidden gifts.

What’s Really Going On?

As conditioned, social humans we are great for skirting around an issue. We can deflect conversations off lonesome highways and long, winding diversions, very skilfully. All to hide and divert attention from what's really going on within us. We'd prefer to talk in stories, riddles and blame rather than just plainly admit a deep feeling of hurt, anxiety or fear.
