Authentic Reality

What is really real?

Our reality is shaped and manifested by what we are being within. Typically many people tend to identify with the conditioned thinking and behaviours inherent in our society. This creates a matrix of collective thought forms which many then conform to. In short we create the false reality which society expects of us.

This reality only tends to offer a wafer thin slice of the multi dimensional, profoundly magical universe available to us. If we can let go of our conditioned beliefs and behaviours, then this new absolute authentic reality gradually unfolds into our awareness.

It begins by challenging the conditioned thinking that imprisons us. That is the purpose of the articles below...

Why Human Identity will never solve Human Problems

I felt to share this amazingly powerful video by the famous Buddhist Alan Watts - an amazing character, with a core splitting, clear view of life and the world. In it, he sums up so eloquently in my opinion why humanity is in the mess it's in, and offers profound insight in how our biggest issues may be resolved. It's essential to realise the source of the problem: which is a false Human Identity itself. That's why he believes (and so do I), that we'll never solve the problems we face with the identity itself. That's like a turkey voting for Christmas! As he suggests, we must instead 'hand over the direction of nature back to nature'...

Positively thriving through the Collapse of Civilisation


Have you ever watched something happening in slow motion? You can quite clearly see the end result, but nevertheless, you can't quite believe in your mind what your eyes are seeing. Like when the twin towers 'collapsed'. The demolition was happening there right in front of you, but you had to pinch yourself to make sure you weren't just dreaming. I feel exactly that way about modern society right now. The collapse is already happening, but in slow motion, so you can't quite believe the entirety of it. What will it look like as the 'buildings' topple? More importantly, how can we not only survive the shift, but positively thrive in it?...

Baptism of Fire for a New Humanity

Mankind faces a very challenging future. With the collapse of the financial system possible at any time; with growing challenge to the industrial food chain and heavily overstretched energy supplies, what we're faced with, is the very collapse of civilisation. But this will not be the end of it. Some are even predicting, that due to the breakdown of the biosphere and damaging effects of nuclear radiation, the near term extinction of the human race is a distinct possibility. In my heart, I know that's not going to happen. I know that for those who have the courage and commitment, a new possibility exists: a new humanity in a higher vibrational paradigm...

Building Trust in the Divine


In spiritual evolution you'll often hear of the need to develop trust. Trust in what? Trust in the divine perhaps or trust in oneself. Or maybe we need trust that everything will turn out fine - whatever 'fine' actually means. Clearly it relates in some way to letting go and accepting the flow of life. But does that mean acceptance of anything goes? So what exactly is this thing called trust that we should be developing...

The Great Realignment (part 2): Gaia's Dramatic Healing

In The Great Realignment (part 1), I spoke of how the balance of life on Earth has become so far out of harmony with nature, that a corrective force of monumental proportions was now gathering in strength to shatter the structures that have so consumed and controlled other sentient life. As the underlying energetic matrix is unraveling, the departing clouds will reveal the new paradigm, in a higher vibrational existence. However, we can expect it to be neither pretty nor easy. Our planet is entering the crucible of profound catalytic healing. The fire-walk of spiritual mastery is now unfolding before us and we must surrender into it to truly thrive...

How finding the Deeper Meaning can lead to a more fulfilled life

Albert Einstein is quoted as saying: "there's two ways you can live your life...as if nothing is a miracle or as if everything is a miracle". The matrix we live in can be challenging. Everywhere around you there's oodles of reasons why to be invested in the drama - it seems everybody else is doing it! And the world of physicality is so alluring, with its tantalisations and temptations, society has really perfected the art of pulling you into some illusionary 'entertainment'. But what if we resist that? What if instead, we look deeply into every moment and challenge the alluring seduction that would contract us down. What happens if we always look for the deeper purpose, the deeper reason, the deeper meaning? How might we experience life differently?

The Great Realignment (part 1): The New Paradigm

There's plenty of talk in spiritual circles currently about the "New Paradigm": what that is; how to access it; how is it going to unfold? The views are often strongly contrasting. I sense it's because there's understandably still a lot of fear and desire - desire of a particular reality or fear of another. When we can completely let go, then we'll truly feel the real juice of life, and especially how it wants to flow. "Realignment" is what inspires the actions emanating from the core of my soul - realignment for all life. In other words, unraveling density and allowing the divine to take over. Now is the time to embrace this driving force of life, because a "Great Realignment" is gathering strength here on Earth...

A Bridge between Worlds

A new paradigm of being is opening up. It is here all around us. But sometimes it's extremely hard to balance the connection to this 'new world' with living day-to-day in society, especially because not everyone is yet reading from this divine 'script'. It can sometimes feel like it's one or the other. Integrating one into the other can seem a nigh on impossibility, but it is not. Here's where the tactile, empathic nature of the soul - the 'diplomat' - comes into it's own: intuiting and feeling the flow of 'rightness' in any given situation, yet molding and blending it into this material world for maximum unraveling and realigning impact. You can live your truth, honour the alternative truth of another, yet not compromise your soul...

The Lone Space


The unquantifiable importance of solitude.
From time to time, I feel the need to take a well earned break away from our work here at Openhand. Not that I feel pressurised by my life, not at all. Even though it is frequently full on, I find it immensely rewarding and yet now and then, there's the undeniable heart-felt pull to spend time alone. I'm blessed to have a little old 4x4 camper van, so as the flow allows, I find myself taking off into nature and the countryside. For me there is nothing more pleasurable than finding some quiet, secluded spot, parking up and simply hanging out…

The Consciousness Landscape

Do the past and the future really exist?
Have you ever wondered why you can't remember the exact details of your past lives? Have you also ever contemplated why even though you may be able to expand into the higher realms, you still can't see deep into the future? As we 'walk the path' it may seem as though apparent chance coincidences are aligning to a destined journey. So if you can touch the cosmic library of all-knowing, why can you not see what's on that journey? Further still, why can we not predict the so called 'scared contracts' that are intended to light up that journey? It all boils down to how we truly process the consciousness of the moment...
