Radical Forgiveness

What does it really mean to forgive?
On our course The Transfiguration, we speak about the importance of not apportioning blame and instead taking full responsibility for the lives we're creating. One vital aspect of this approach is that of forgiveness: realising 'the other person' is not to blame and therefore being able to forgive them. In my experience, this is one of the most liberating and empowering things we can do. But if EVERY situation is purposefully designed by benevolence for us to self-realise, then what really is true forgiveness and how should we really forgive?...

The Blame Game


Accepting personal Responsibility
Right now in the world there is a good deal of anger and resentment, understandably so. When you consider the state of world affairs, of the economy, of the environment, of the inequity and injustice, it's enough to make a saint seethe! Yet the moment we blame someone or something else in the outer world as being the cause of our reality and experience, is the moment we disempower ourselves. Why so? And what would be a more productive approach?...

A Positive Force for Change

How do we become a channel for the Miraculous?
In my book Five Gateways, I've detailed what I feel to be the five key transitions on route to Enlightenment and our ultimate Ascension. It's a journey of profound honesty with ourselves, seeking always to express the authentic beingness within us. As we peel away layers of conditioning and negative behaviours, the journey leads increasingly to a sense of mystical, internal positivity: the realisation that something magical is dawning all around us, that this flow to the higher paradigm is inevitable and to truly experience it, we have to open a space for it to flow into our hearts. We're becoming a Positive Force for Change...

The Church of the Heart


The evolution of Pure Religion
We are living in times of profound change. The old consciousness that we have founded our society upon is being called into question. Every belief system is being rocked to the very core to get to what's really real. We're moving past the static and the fixed. Religion is exploding beyond the confines of a building or the pages of a book. It is unfurling its wings into something that is living, breathing and continually evolving. We're igniting in our hearts a fire of passion. Whether Christian, Buddhist, Muslim or Jew, the consciousness of pure, non sectarian unity is inviting us to express our unique divinity...

Walking the Path

How do you listen to and follow your soul?
For many lifetimes, we've lived in ignorance of our soul. The space has not been provided to embody the soul and so we've experienced life mostly as separate from all things with events and circumstances happening hap-hazardly and randomly with no seeming deeper meaning or purpose. Then one day, we might pause for a moment in the merry-go-round of life, realise that way of living does not serve us and for the first time, hear the quiet voice of the soul in our hearts; and supremely magical it is when that happens. So how do we tune in and listen to the soul the whole time? How can we fully infuse and embody our soul in our lives?...

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?....
