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...

"Following the heart"

Does the universe really work for us?
I have a great friend. When we met her life situation was not good. She was in a relationship that she knew didn't work and was doing a job that didn't suit her. Over the years she had amassed a credit card debt of £40,000. Just like many of us, she had succumbed to the endless subliminal messages of highly paid marketeers selling life styles. No surprise really - that's what their job is and they are very good at it. The whole of the industry is geared to convincing us that something "out there" is an adequate replacement for something "in here"...

"Flowing with truth"

Do you flow with the truth of the moment?
Do you find yourself continually struggling with the circumstances of life that you encounter from day to day? Perhaps its because you're not surrendering to the truth of the moment? Maybe you need to release an attachment to doing something in particular - like your job or a relationship that no longer serves you?...

"Moving from stillness"

Do you find the pace of life too fast?
Today's lifestyles can be hectic and demanding. It seems we grow up extremely quickly and then before we know it, we have taken on responsibilities, expectations and deadlines. We build a virtual prison for ourselves that can be extremely difficult from which to escape. Frequently it takes some kind of crisis before before we sit up and take notice...

"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...

The divine art of praying

Does praying work?
In my view, that would depend on HOW you are praying. The act of creating something is clarity in one's awareness that the creative act has already been completed. We look inside the heart and know that it is already a done deal. There is no need to pray for this (as in to ask). Asking for something in prayer is fear announced saying "God give me that which I don't already have"...

"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?...

I am, I am not

Can you choose who you want to be?
Many popular spiritual books and writings today advocate using the 'I am' statement. I loved the "Conversations with God" trilogy of books and found them deeply transcending. However Neale (the author) keeps repeating the statement 'choose who you now want to be' and it seems to have become a trend in many spiritual circles. But does it work?...

Affirmation or Confirmation?

How do we apply affirmations?
The typical understanding of the word 'affirmation' and the way it is mostly applied in today's popular spiritual teachings is to use the power of thought to create the reality we might want.

The philosophy of Openhand is to live in the truth of what is, rather than to create illusionary realities of our own - the bubble will always burst at some point. However, does this imply that affirmations don't work at all?

"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?...

Divine synchronicity

What is 'Synchronicity' and how does it work?
To me acts of synchronicity are circumstances of apparent chance coincidence that are in fact orchestrations by the universe designed to reveal a message or guidance...
