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...

"Always take the weather with you"

Do you always take the weather with you?
As I sat down to write this, as ever I went inwards and asked the question “what would you have me write?" Nothing immediately sprang to mind so I relaxed in the beautiful sunshine pouring in through my window. “God" frequently speaks to us through music so it was no surprise that the lyrics of a popular song flowed in called “weather with you". A few of the words touched my heart deeply so I thought I would share them with you...

"Call my bluff"

Do affirmations really work?
There are many spiritual teachings that speak of the power of positive affirmations in one's life as a force for transformation. Basically if we keep telling ourselves that something is true long enough - like “I am love" for example - the hope is that we begin to fully believe it and manifest that reality in our lives. But does it work?...

"A need to know"

How much is there to know?
We all know the universe is of infinite proportions. All the while people are digging deeper and deeper uncovering fantastic new realisations and discoveries. In our world there is an unquenchable thirst for knowledge in science, business and our private lives. But does this quest for knowledge lead anywhere? Does it advance who and what we are?...

"Denial is not a river in Egypt"

How do we overcome our addictions?
Decided to give up tea, alcohol or chocolate or to let go of that relationship that is no longer working? Are you applying a method to your endeavours or are you just hoping that your resolve will be strong enough? In my experience, mind lead resolutions simply deny what we are truly feeling and only a deeply honest confrontation and unravelling of our emotions can yield lasting change...

"Better rhythm than discipline"

Has your discipline descended into drudgery?
Traditional thinking would have us believe that discipline is a good thing. Whether it be in sports, business or our private lives, commitment to a cause is mostly the only way to yield a positive result and so discipline is considered a powerful quality to ensure we manifest those things we are meant to. But does discipline lead to dogma? Does it not confine us to a particular set of actions and thoughts? Is there another way of looking at discipline that does not restrict us but empowers us?

"It's good not to talk"

Are your words better than your silence would have been?
There is a BT advert that says "it's good to talk" - well they would say that wouldn't they? Conversely a great indian Swami once told me it's much better to listen, “God gave us two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and only one mouth! If we would only keep it closed more, then we would be more aware of what is truly going on around us"...

"Mind over matter or matter over mind?"

I recently overheard a conversation where a lady had been taught self hypnosis by a doctor. The lady had spent many years grinding her teeth to the point where she risked loosing them...

The doctor taught her a self hypnosis technique to stop her doing it. It was 'successful' and she was positively buzzing that she (or rather her ego) had the power of 'mind over matter'.
