The Law of Non-efforting

What does 'non-efforting' really mean?
There is an unwritten 'law' of non-efforting that is prevalent in countless spiritual texts with regards to walking the spiritual path. It is something we frequently refer to here at Openhand. It is of course about following the natural flow of the universe in every moment and not resisting it. However, it seems that frequently, this unwritten law is used as an excuse for not taking a certain step that's clearly presenting itself, or indeed not doing anything much at all! In our view, this is a serious mis-understanding of what true 'non-efforting' really means and is potentially very limiting...

Is telepathy possible?....

and if so, how does it work?
Telepathy is one of the divine skills which mankind has speculated about for eons; the ability to pick-up and transfer direct knowing from one being to another. How wonderful it would be wouldn't it? To be able to communicate directly with another beyond the limitation of words. And just think about all those saved mobile phone charges! So is telepathy possible? In my experience it most definitely is. In fact, although I don't claim to always get it right, for me it has become a way of life, something I'm working to perfect. So how can it benefit us and how can we learn to apply it? As with all matters spiritual, the key is to first move beyond all the hype, distortion and disinformation and truly understand what it is, for only then may we discover how it works...

What is Ascension? Gateways Seminar video clip...


Science meets spirituality to demystify and debunk
As 2012 fast approaches many awakening people are beginning to ask what's going to happen? How are our lives going to be effected? Here at Openhand, our purpose is to dispel the hype, myth and glamour associated with this entirely natural planetary and human process. We maintain that all of the vital issues we're currently facing right now such as global warming, peak oil, the credit crunch etc etc can be solved by understanding and aligning with this internal shift of consciousness. That's why we feel given to share our views in our "Gateways Seminar". Here is a 30 minute video clip from our last event in Byron Bay, Australia...

The "Seer" of all things

The search for the Holy Grail
There is something which humanity has been searching for since our inception. Something which is the answer to every single question, every single thought, word, deed and feeling. It is our destiny, it is the beginning and end of everything...the circle completing itself. We can search, question and create as much as we want to in the external world of effects, but unless we've found the source of our inquisitiveness, we're guaranteed not to have satiated our desires. Yet even when we eventually give up the fruitless external struggle and embark on the inner journey, we still won't find it whilst someone is looking for it. So what am I talking about? It is the HolyGrail. The "Seer" of all things...

Transcendence

Dealing with pain, discomfort and difficulty
Recently on the Openhand site there's been much discussion about dealing with the pain of the past. Whether we know it or not, we are all being effected by eons of karmic trauma. If you stop for one moment and contemplate the brutality, inhumanity and plain suffering that our race has endured throughout its history, then it should come as no surprise that when we lift the lid on Pandora's box by expanding our consciousness, that's going to come with a good deal of pain. And yet we are each seeded to deal with it. We have the character, make-up and courage to journey through it and process it out. And there is a powerful tool called 'transcendence' that we might make full use of. What does that mean exactly and how could we best apply it?...

2012 and beyond...

Beginning of the end or end of the beginning?
Increasingly people are asking about our views on the prophecies of 2012. What's going to happen? How will our lives change? Is the world going to come to an end? Here at Openhand we don't see ourselves as prophets. We all have the capacity to change and if we live our lives according to what we desire, expect or fear in the future, then our consciousness is increasingly removed from the only thing of value that we really possess - the moment of now. It is only by being fully present in the moment that we can truly effect or change things according to our intended destiny. The interesting paradox is that when we're being fully present, we unfold into multiple dimensions of reality; we gain access to a wider truth, one where the foundations of 2012 have already being laid. So what is really going on in our expanded reality?....

Honouring the sacred cycle

The importance of "Moontime"
Moontime is a name given to the "menstrual period" of the female cycle. It feels to me a beautiful description and speaks of the natural cyclical rhythm of this sacred time. It is often referred to in this way in Native American and Druid circles. In such bygone cultures it has been honoured by male and female alike, acknowledging the fact that we are all influenced and effected by this profoundly beautiful act of nature. It seems society has lost perspective and true understanding of this natural cycle. You might be interested, therefore, in this personal sharing...

The Inner Sanctum

Finding the sanctity of profound inner peace
A few years ago, I was blessed with a truly amazing experience during meditation. I felt myself taken on an inner journey to the highest realms of vibrational consciousness. The journey was metaphored by a wonderous visual parallel which helped me dissolve deeper and deeper into awesome self acceptance. The journey led ultimately to a serene inner temple of infinite benevolence; it felt like coming home. It was not until speaking with others, that I realised this journey was open to each and every one of us should we choose to embark. So what is this Inner Temple all about, how might we access it and how can it help us on our continued journey?...

These are the times we've been waiting for


The Unseen reveals its hand
So it's here. Something we've been talking about here at Openhand for quite some time. Global recession. Share prices dissolving, house values plummeting, economies contracting. Ever since the Titanic sank at the end of the Industrial Revolution, just as the Twin Trade Towers collapsed into dust, we've been warned about it. So as my house price crumbles, am I sitting in fear? No. This is meant to happen. This is perfection. The unseen is playing its hand. These are the times we've been waiting for...

Fear - the doorway to Heaven


Confronting and dealing with fear
When we step onto our path of soul guided evolution, there is frequently one seemingly unwelcome guest that we'll be called upon many times to encounter - fear. Fear is what holds us back from realising our full potential in life. It's what constricts the flow of divine love within us; it dims our inner light. But ALL fear is just a doorway through which to step into a greater expansion. Therefore fear is not to be feared at all but rather embraced as a tool by which to grow. If we can make this internal switch of perception about our fears, we'll find ourselves accelerating faster and faster into full Enlightenment. So how might we confront and deal with fear?...
