Understanding the Root Cause of Depression so we can deal with it

Submitted by Open on Wed, 01/28/2015 - 19:05

Can you believe it, 70% of Americans are on some kind of prescription drug and more than half receive at least two prescriptions. High on the list of drugs prescribed are antidepressants. I find that shocking. Not least, it speaks about the dysfunctional nature of society in terminal decline. The system is not working! I imagine practically everyone suffers from some kind of unhappiness or depression from time to time.

Why does that happen?
How might we deal with it in an effective, spiritual way, without prescribing medication?...

Understanding Self-Realisation...Integrating the Purpose of Life?

Submitted by Open on Sun, 01/18/2015 - 18:12

We read about 'self-realisation' in spiritual circles, but what really does that mean? We may gain an intellectual understanding, but to me, there's much more to the term itself and what it can encourage us to do; how to live. I observe in the work we do, that when a person finds the right alignment in life, which incorporates self-realisation, then our perspective on life changes immeasurably for the better. It can be said, that in actual fact, there is nothing else but self-realisation going on. It's just a question of whether we're actively engaged in it, in which case we become the masters of it; or else we're ignorant of it, and thus become victims. So what really is self-realisation, and how can we benefit from it?...

Who are You? and how to be that

Submitted by Open on Wed, 12/17/2014 - 07:14

It strikes me that the biggest problem humanity faces right now is a case of mistaken identity. People mistake themselves for something they are not; and this generates all manner of false lifestyles and suffering. And even when a person discovers they are not the ego, there frequently follows all kinds of attachment and identification with qualities of the soul: like "I am love" for example. So what about ditching all kinds of conditioned identity completely?

What about surrendering into the infinite vulnerability of the moment
and allowing the real you to effortlessly arise?
How might that positively change your life and the world around you too?...

Greatness - it's in all of us...Here are 9 ways to unleash it

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/13/2014 - 19:32

What does it mean to be truly great? Is greatness in all of us, or just the 'chosen few'? What does greatness have to do - if anything - with fame, fortune and popularity? Greatness is something that's has always intrigued me. And even though there's a heavy dose of surrendering acceptance in the nature of my soul, when I open an internal space, something pretty often arises all by itself - a striving to learn, explore, evolve and grow. It's a passion and commitment to evolutionary change. There's no struggle in this, but there's absolute determination and will. It feels totally spiritual to me. Does this bear any relation to greatness? Is it in you, and if so, what might you do to unleash it?...

Path between Worlds: Ascending into the Fifth Density

Submitted by Open on Mon, 12/08/2014 - 16:56

Yesterday I was at a favourite gorge here in Avalon (UK). The weather was spectacular: a still and crisp autumn day; the trees resplendent in greens, golds and oranges; clouds were flowing into the horizon, across blue sky, like an endless river. When I looked at the rocks, I couldn’t see them anymore; I couldn’t see the trees any longer as purely 3D. The air was no longer air, just passing into physical lungs. As I looked around me, I’d become as one with the consciousness, with the light; and as I looked into the setting sky, it’s like I was flowing into it. I was flowing into the 5D. This, I know as the Path Between Worlds. Come join the journey…

The Spiritual Warrior learns through Adversity

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:11

I've faced many challenging and difficult situations that I recall through my existence. It seems my life has consisted of a good deal of breaking through adversity; continually confronting and overcoming challenges. Since earlier times, many things have changed. Along the path, I've learned the art of divinely surrendering to the flow; of accepting life as it really is, initially at least, without trying to change it. I realised you have to be at-one with something - the One - to truly change anything. Has this made life any easier? In many ways yes. But I also have a strong warrior energy: I love the complexity, challenge and opportunities in life; the chance to learn and grow. Whether man or woman, cultivating the warrior spirit can be of great service to us all...

Right Action and the Path of Light

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:09

How do we create the lives that best serve us? We are still frequently being asked about our thoughts on manifestation: how do we create the lives that best serve us? From our perspective, in true authenticity, it is not a case of manifesting by mind led intention, rather we tune into our higher self, align with the natural energetic flow of the moment and simply allow creative "Right Action" to unfold as a natural expression of who we really are. So if you're not completely content with the circumstances of your life and you're interested in creating a more harmonious one, you might be interested in reading this point of view...

Courage Commitment and Focus on the Spiritual Path

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:08

You'll never forget this video!
I came across this amazing video the other day which I felt to share. I find it tremendously inspirational. It's not a 'spiritual' video as such, but then again, if we're truly following and committing to our passion, is that not spiritual in itself? I'm travelling the world currently, on the Divinicus Tour, meeting people, all of whom have seemingly mountainous obstacles on their path. This is a video about a guy demonstrating tremendous skill, commitment and bravery in crossing a seemingly insurmountable mountain range - a knife edge ridge - on the awesomely beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland. What can this video teach us about life itself?...

Breaking Through the Pain of Existence...Unfolding into Enlightenment

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:04

I’d say one of the biggest problems humanity is dealing with right now, is something I call “The Pain of Existence”. It’s the disconnection from the sublime feeling of unity with the divine, and therefore unconsciously seeking some kind of substitute in the outer world: distraction, entertainment, relationship, sex, drugs etc etc. It’s not that we shouldn’t enjoy life, the problem is identification with the outer mirror: we need it to be a certain way, rather than realising it as the mirror to the inner perfection of the divine. How does that mirroring work? How can we locate the divine through all these kinds of circumstances in our lives?...

The Influence of the Solar Logos on our Ascension

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:03

Anyone whose read Divinicus by now, will know the significance I feel of the "Solar Logos" - the soul of our Sun - and its anticipated impact on the changing biosphere of our planet. Of course Earth is intricately connected to the Sun, not just as a ball of rock and dust orbiting it by some perverse 'gravitational pull'. These are cosmic deities, drawn to each other by the universal Law of Attraction, just as you were to your father; there's an intimate interrelation - a heavenly dance taking place. So what's the significance of the recent solar storms, growing at a time when Gaia's magnetic field is dwindling?...

What happens internally when we start to infuse Soul?

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 11:00

When we begin to observe ourselves and our behaviour - our thoughts our feelings and our emotions - then we begin to know ourselves as more than the small "I". We begin to open the heart and feel our connection to the divine; sensed as joy, timelessness, expansiveness, interconnectivity, unconditional love. Many approaches in the Spiritual Mainstream would concur with this. But the question is, what happens next? What goes on internally as the soul infuses through our being; what will be encountered? And most importantly, how best can we work to integrate soul for the benefit of our lives...

The Power of Meditation

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 05:39

Right now in the world the old fear based reality has become unstable and is beginning to fracture. It's what science calls the movement of disordering free entropy. But wherever you have that destructive energy breaking things down, the miraculous thing is, reconstructive energies take shape immediately the parts of the old consciousness fragment. It is a reordering energy science calls 'neg-entropy' and the Awakening Movement knows much more appropriately as unconditional love! It's drawing us into a higher paradigm of greater energetic harmony. Meditation has the power to do this. We become channels of consciousness for the new energies to flow in. Not only is meditation powerfully healing for us, but the whole of life on our planet...
