The Experience of No-Self and Soul

The Experience of No-self and Soul

The Enlightened Aproach is to realise the nature of the relationship between Soul and Presence: when there is presence, then soul naturally flows from it without efforting. It just arises, mirroring the bigbang experience that flowed from presence to create the known Universe - it just happened. So here's the key: align with the soul, and presence will naturally start to happen due to the interrelation with presence.

Taking the Path Less Traveled

Openhand Philosophy: the Path Less Traveled

The hardest thing is to change yourself. Because that takes responsibility, ownership of your sh** and a willingness to change. If you can dig deep, and find this quality, if you can own your creative path, then you have what it takes to meet the crucial obstacles of change - those inside yourself. And when you do decide, the path is actually quite straightforward - not easy, but straightforward: begin with the moment right now, what are you feeling? What are you resisting? What are you being invited to let go of inside yourself? You know which step to then take.

Flow of Life

Flow of Life with Openhand

I think there's a generalised belief in some spiritual circles that when you attain Enlightenment life's trials and tribulations all fall away. You've reached some higher dimensional beach, whereupon, you can chill out and just hang ten. Think again! There is only the process. In Enlightenment the difference is that there's complete recognition of it, a complete surrender to it, and above all, a constant turning into the density that presents, a constant unwinding through.

Dealing with Judgment

Openhand Spiritual Philosophy Dealing with Judgment

When you step purposefully forwards, when you commit to making true and lasting change that's real and authentic, one that's aligning with the flow, then you become a reflection to all around you. They see your light, which challenges them to step out of their own box too. If they are anxious or fearful about what they're being invited to do, then the knee jerk reaction is often to shoot the messenger, rather than have to deal with an inconvenient message. That's exactly when judgment and projection will come calling. BUT, it can only land if in someway you are judging yourself. STOP.

The Deep Energy Field

The Deep Energy Field

The Deep Energy field binds into the subconscious and is deceptive and distorting. But with the razor edge of profound self honesty, we can break free. It's about channeling awareness into all our behaviours and aligning only with that which we know and feel to be in alignment with our soul, no matter what the external temptation. It's about the forging of soul sovereignty. It leads to true freedom of being.


Containment of Negative Energy

Containing negative energy

It's essential always to get into internal blockages, distortions and density, so that we may effectively process and release it. Sometimes that will involve containing it, until we have more appropriate circumstances, but definitely don't suppress and ditch. Find the right space just as soon as possible. Regress back into the situation, honour and express - then the distortion can be peeled off to allow unbridled liberation and expression of soul. It's only by freely expressing your true beingness that the presence of the One can arise through you.

Contentment and Fulfillment

Contentment and Fulfillment


What brings true contentment and sense of fulfillment? How extraordinary it is, to discover it doesn't come from what you consume or achieve. Actually, it's a simple sense of complete acceptance within, of oneself and the moment. I find it comes most strongly of all, when I'm letting go of things, rather than acquiring them.

Divine Manifestation

Divine Manifestation

I find divine manifestation is kind of like working with swirling clouds in the heavens. They're up there and moving around, but not entirely tangible, beautiful to watch, but a degree out of reach. It requires much patience in this formative stage. You can tell something is about to land, but you're not sure entirely what, or how. Just keep paying attention, notice the synchronicities as things begin to connect, but work not to force anything, or else the creation will be distorted or misaligned. Let nothing be hurried, yet be in complete awareness and ready to move.

Risking All

Risking all on the Spiritual Path

There will surely come key times on the spiritual path when you'll be required to risk all, to dive right into your immaculate home coming. At these crucial points, it will not be easy, you'll likely waiver and doubt, but that is the forging of the soul, it's where you decide and create who you are. Diving fully into the biggest of life's challenges, is where you grow and learn most. You simply cannot lose from this. Even if things fall apart around you, you'll unveil a new you, and that can't possibly fail to succeed. So be bold. Make the statement!


Entering the Inflexion Point

Openhand Philosophy - The Inflexion Point

Now I sense we've turned a crutical corner in the shift. We're entering an "Inflexion Point", a crucial fulcrum, where the light is working to "pull through" and shift into the higher vibration. At this point, people will largely fall into one of two camps: (1) they'll dig in, cling on, and work desperately to perpetuate the status quo; (2) you'll realise you've really got to make a choice - to dive full-on, into the centre stream of your immaculate home coming.


Life is a Story

Life is a story

I was out walking in the countryside today, late one afternoon with blue skies, cool breeze and bright orange sun, gently surrendering the remains of the day. I was pondering the nature of life's 'journey' and realised that although frequently spoken of, it isn't a metaphor that sits completely right for me, because the metaphor is about travel - places to get to or pass through, essentially doing things. I prefer to see life more as a story, to which I'm constantly adding new chapters. And each new chapter offers us an extraordinary potential: to express something new about ourselves.

Castle of Glass

When just one person, with expanded consciousness, steps out of the system of "what they should do" or "must do" or "can't possibly do", when you have the courage to step forwards even though all around you are telling you you're crazy and it can't be done; even when there's a zillion reasons not to, or where there appears to be no resources to support you; when it feels like you're leaping off a cliff, and you somehow need to learn, very quickly, how to do the seemingly impossible - to learn how to fly - yet you're sure you're coming from the soul, from that quiet but insistent voice withi
