Mental Diets

 

Mental Diets...

 Dare You to Read This Every Night Before You Go to Bed and See What Happens!


Neville Goddard  1955


MENTAL DIETS

Talking to oneself is a habit everyone indulges in. We could no more stop talking to ourselves than we could stop eating and drinking. All that we can do is control the nature and the direction of our inner conversations. Most of us are totally unaware of the fact that our inner conversations are the causes of the circumstance of our life.

We are told that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." But do we know that man's thinking
follows the tracks laid down in his own inner conversations? To turn the tracks to which he is tied in the direction in which he wants to go, he must put off his former conversation, which is called in the Bible the Old Man, and be renewed in the spirit of his mind. Speech is the image of mind; therefore, to change his mind, he must first change his speech. By 'speech' is meant those mental conversations we carry on with ourselves.

The world is a magic circle of infinite possible mental transformations. For there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations. 

When man discovers the creative power of inner talking, he will realize his function and his mission in life. Then he can act to a purpose. Without such knowledge, he acts unconsciously. Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on in us without our being aware of them. But as civilized beings, we must become aware of them and act with a purpose.

A man's mental conversations attracts his life. As long as there is no change in his inner talking, the personal history of the man remains the same. To attempt to change the world before we change our inner talking is to struggle against the very nature of things. Man can go round and round in the same circle of disappointments and misfortunes, not seeing them as caused by his own negative inner talking, but as caused by others... Read More:


This may seem far-fetched, but it is a matter which lends itself to research and experiment. The formula the chemist illustrates is not more certainly provable than the formula of this science by which words are clothed in objective reality.

One day a girl told me of her difficulties in working with her employer. She was convinced that he unjustly criticized and rejected her very best efforts. Upon hearing her story, I explained that if she thought him unfair, it was a sure sign that she herself was in need of a new conversation piece. There was no doubt but that she was mentally arguing with her employer, for others only echo that which we whisper to them in secret.

She confessed that she argued mentally with him all day long. When she realized what she had been doing, she agreed to change her inner conversations with her employer. She imagined that he had congratulated her on her fine work, and that she in turn had thanked him for his praise and kindness. To her great delight, she soon discovered that her own attitude was the cause of all that befell her.

The Strange Woman

Here, Bill again points out what is part of our constant vigil... and that is that once you have built your temple/heaven, beware of the strange woman that will distract you and destroy the temple:

What...Is...Love?

Our Wish for you:

"That you may Become Love"

 To know love you must inquire.
Answers are implied in questions, so ask yourself, "What is Love?"

Asking yourself this one question, over and over and over again, is the most trans-formative activity that an individual can engage in. Years ago, I became obsessed with this question, in a way that is impossible to put into words.

I WANTED TO KNOW!

...Was it just a feeling? What was that feeling? Where was I feeling the sensations? What were those sensations? Is it a feeling of possession? of Security? of relief?  Is love pleasure? Is love infatuation? Is it adoration? Is love just an emotion? What is it to "fall" into Love? How does Love work? Are there really different kinds of Love? I love my parents and I love my dog, I love my car, I love certain foods, I love my children and my friends, I love being in nature etc, etc... Is this love all the same? Is love greater for one than another? Are there different levels of Love? What is it to love a country, or maybe a song?

Food for Thought?

What are YOU feeding your mind?
 Let us talk about mental nutrition.
'You are what you eat' with the body.
'You become what you consume' with the mind. 
It's pretty obvious that this is true for the body. But isn't it interesting that have not applied this rule to the mind? The mind wants to be fed compulsively 'More'. 

More information, more drama, more excitement, more violence, more knowledge, more sex, the absolute latest breaking news… as if it would make a difference in the world if we heard about it 2 hours later. This blind and ravenous consumption of media has made our minds heavy, dull and obese... fattening up on the idea that what is going on 'out there' is more important than what is right in front of you 'right now'.

The highly processed and cleverly crafted messages we consume are clogging up the digestive system of the mind, making it nearly impossible to extract what little nutrition is hidden there.  

A high-fat diet of: traumatic television, nasty newsprint and pathological periodicals contributes to the 'heart' disease of the mind, keeping us internally in conflict and judgment, thus leading to an emotional cardiac arrest and a heartless world.

 Mental nutrition high with the cholesterol of conflict, conspiracy and creative consumerism, hardens up the arteries of freethinking. Mind-foods full of behavioral preservatives subversively sell us everything from chocolate-chip cookies, to national propaganda, to what a human being is supposed to look like and behave like, thus cementing un-asked-for belief systems to an unaware consumer. These are just a few of the external hazards of this kind of mental nutrition.

Truth is a Pathless Land...


The following speech is, in our opinion, one of the greatest delivery of words to man, from man,

that
 exists in history. Studying the penetrating teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, one comes to the conclusion that problems created by thought cannot be solved by thought. Thought.... thinking... and the abstractions that result can be a perilous field, especially for most of us who do not understand the workings of the mind, the nature of time and the meaning of love. 

Most of us are completely identified with our thinking, our beliefs, values etc... We think we are our thoughts. But who is doing all this thinking? Where does a thought come from? Who is the observer? What is the observed? Can we penetrate the superficial meaning of words to find reality? And if we can, What do we find?






The thinking part of the mind does not like these questions much... because it has been happily in control of our lives for a long time and is not really interested in any truth that would reduce it's grip on controlling what we think is real. Such questioning threatens the very existence of the mind-created self and it will do desperate things to protect itself. This desperation is reflected in the conflict and chaos of today's world.


Truth Is A Pathless Land

What follows is the speech made by Jiddu Krishnamurti in 1929 when he dissolved the Order of the Star. The Order of the Star was the organization built

The Map is not the Territory...

By Tim Che'

I don't know about you, but I have always been fascinated by maps. Maps are handy things to have when you want to get somewhere that you have not been before.  I love getting a sense of the spatial relationship of where I am to my surroundings. I have spent an inordinate amount of time looking at maps and things like Google Earth. And, even as detailed as Google Earth can be, I am ALWAYS astonished to discover that the actual place is not at all like the map, or Google Earth with the street view! It is always MUCH more in depth, and full of life, and overwhelming to the senses... a profound level of awareness and presence in an eternal moment that no map could ever come close to.

There are many kinds of maps... not just about locations and roads or paths. Religions are a map to
God, supposedly. Science is the modern map of  the material world. Pharmaceuticals and surgeries are a popular map to health.

There are mind-maps, star maps, and even a map of human consciousness. And all maps are created through someone's remembered and recorded perceptions and/or analysis of hopefully accurate data. Hopefully, of course, for anyone who wishes to follow the map and get to a particular destination.

So, maps attempt to lay out the territory and build paths to destinations. Then we discover...


And what does that say about "destinations" as it relates to "truth"? Let us address that later as we continue to explore "maps".

What's the "Matter" with You?

by Tim Che'

For some time now, I have been suspicious about science and it's limitations, particularly when it comes to the mind and ideas like "Transhumanism" and "The Singularity". I am reminded by Neville that... "The creator is always greater than the created" AND:

"Facts always follow, they never precede" 

In other words, something caused everything that exists. Something preceded the fact. It was before the fact. That something is Consciousness.
Science is ill-equipped to explore the cause
of matter. The only thing that "matters" to science is matter. As a matter of fact, facts are the only thing that matters to the logical mind of reason. But something "caused" the matter. To discover this cause, you must quiet the part of the mind that is only concerned with matter, with facts, with the results of the cause. If you are successful in your quest to find the "cause", the rest of the world will look at you and say;

"What's the matter with you!?"

They can only translate what you have discovered in terms of the matter that they are lost in. It is the story of the narcissist, who does not know that the world is his own reflection, and he loses himself in his own image, his own projection.

There is no way to "know"-your-way out of this current reality... 

The only knowledge that is possible, is self knowledge. It is not possible to know any more than self, and that is true on every level of creation and every dimension of the Imagination. This includes ascended masters and etheric beings, and Aliens, who seem to be greater than what we believe that we are. We make ourselves  'Grasshoppers in a land of Giants' but at the end of the day, only one thing is actually happening and that is that consciousness is seeking its own self-definition.

I found this video the other day and I like the way this topic is presented here. I think you will as well.... and you can't beat the presenter's credentials.

The Real Cause of Cancer...

Every page of this web/blog is dedicated to the expression of a revolution in human consciousness, revealed in the Awakened Imagination, as the cause of all phenomenon. Clearly, health or disease is caused by the "inner" life of the individual more than the "outer".  Here, Andreas Moritz, explains the true cause of cancer and eloquently shows us that disease is fundamentally psycho-somatic and comes from our state of mind... Which is exactly what we have been teaching about the relationship between the Human Imagination and reality. As a close friend and contemporary of Che's, that she befriended while living in Minnesota, we thank you with all our heart! Andreas Moritz... R. I. P.

The Garden of Eden is the Mind of Man

You are the Gardener of your mind. 
You have been given the responsibility to, "Dress it and to keep it". 

Perhaps you have been taking a nap... and weeds have begun to grow in your mind during your slumber. Take a look around and what do you see? If you see the weeds of anger, or violence, or despair, disease, poverty, etc, etc,... you can immediately begin to prune them with your mind.

You will need

The Law of Reversibility...

Consciousness and Matter are One phenomenon. All transformations of force are reversible.
Electricity can produce magnetism... and magnetism can be used to produce electricity.
Heat can produce mechanical motion... and mechanical motion can be used to produce heat.
Cause and effect, matter and energy, action and reaction are the same and inter-convertible.
When you fully understand this law, you will begin to tame and master your mind and shape your world into your ideal.

Beyond the Consciousness of Healing

 Beyond the Consciousness of Healing


Published by Edge Life, A Holistic Journal, March 2006 
by Tim Che'


What lies beyond the consciousness of healing is a topic to ponder, not one to debate.  It is a perspective about what you believe and how you manifest your world.  It is your choice what to believe is true, a choice that nobody can take away from you.  But once you have chosen what is true for you, will you realize that the circumstances you will meet have been pre-arranged from your preconceived notions of what is true and your only choice from then on is how you will react to these circumstances?  What comes your way is predetermined from your choice, your selection —whether intentional or not—of a state of consciousness.  The following is a dialog about choice from the broadest perspective: the choice of what you believe to be true about the world and you. You have but one choice to make that will determine the course of everything in your world and your role in it:

Do you believe that your inner conversations and mental activity are a result of your life-circumstances? 

Or, do you believe that your life-circumstances are a result of your inner conversations and mental activity?
  

Your Only Choice

If you believe the former—that your inner conversations and mental activity are a result of your
external life-circumstances—then your only choice from now on is in how you will react to the circumstances prepared for you by the chosen state of consciousness you occupy, and you might even be quite unaware of your choice altogether.  You will be a “re-actor” reacting to the facts your chosen state of consciousness presents to you.  You might even feel successful or an expert in your reactions.  Others might admire the results of your reactions, but you are still limited by your chosen field of reaction. Since we are discussing going beyond healing consciousness, if you are a “healer” and are comfortably identified with that state you may save yourself the energy of any conflict that could arise from reading further by stopping now and continuing in the world—the consciousness—of your choosing.  No one can deny you that anyway.

If, however, after careful consideration you decide to believe the latter—that your life-circumstances are a result of your inner conversations and mental activity— you can begin to understand you are God, a Creator. This will be the premise for the rest of the dialog and by agreeing, if you notice any arguments creeping into your mind, it may be that you have changed your mind about the premise.



Command and Control

So, as a creator, do you have command over your inner conversations and mental activity?  Do you have control over the direction of your creation?  Is your habitual state of mind predominant in defining your world?  Do you run over the same old patterns of likes, dislikes, agitations, addictions, and desires for knowledge?  These patterns are representative of the state of consciousness you have wittingly or unwittingly chosen and are reflected in your reality, which is projected onto the screen of space to become your experience.

There are infinite states of consciousness and mankind is continually moving in and out of these states, mostly unaware.  You are always in a “state” and it is useful to realize that you are separate from the

Movie Pics: Don Juan Demarco

Depp, Brando, Dunaway... This all-star combo combined with the Great Francis Ford Coppola, have created a masterpiece lesson of Imagination and Love. This is truly a story of an Awakened Imagination and not about a narcissistic womanizer. If you take the character, and the words that he speaks, and direct them to yourself... Ahhhhh, what a love affair will begin! It makes you ask the question,"What kind of mind is it that could say these things and see the world in this way?" And that is a VERY powerful question! One of our new Favorite movies! Here are some teasers:

  1. “There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only love.”
  2. “Have you never met a woman who inspires you to love? Until your every sense is filled with her? You inhale her. You taste her. You see your unborn children in her eyes and know that your heart has at last found a home.”
  3. “What do you know of great love? Have you ever loved a woman until milk leaked from her as though she had just given birth to love itself, and now must feed it or burst? Have you ever tasted a woman until she believed that she could be satisfied only by consuming the tongue that had devoured her? Have you ever loved a woman so completely that the sound of your voice in her ear could cause her body to shudder and explode with such intense pleasure that only weeping could bring her full release?”
  4. “I give women pleasure, if they desire, it is of course the greatest pleasure they will ever experience. No woman has ever left my arms unsatisfied.”
  5. “Every true lover knows that the moment of greatest satisfaction comes when ecstasy is long over and he beholds before him the flower which has blossomed beneath his touch.”
  6. “By seeing beyond what is visible to the eye. Now there are those, of course, who do not share my perceptions, it’s true. When I say that all my woman are dazzling beauties, they object. The nose of this one is too large; the hips of another, they are too wide; perhaps the breasts of a third, they are too small. But I see these women for how they truly are… glorious, radiant, spectacular, and perfect, because, I am not limited by my eyesight. Women react to me the way that they do, Don Octavio, because they sense that I search out the beauty that dwells within until it overwhelms everything else. And then they cannot avoid their desire, to release that beauty and envelope me in it.”
  7. “Every woman is a mystery to be solved.”
  8. "I would say that he has a rather limited and un-creative way of looking at the situation. Look, you want to know if I understand that this is a mental hospital? Yes, I understand that, but then how can I say that you are Don Octavio and I am a guest at your villa? Correct?"

Would You Choose to be Free?

A question for a generation at the precipice of awakening:


Some time ago, we were In-Joying some time in the beautiful outside patio of a nice coffee shop in Orange County, CA, and were engaged in conversation with our server, a young man in his mid 20's, with a lovely personality. He was living with his parents and enjoying a very comfortable life, by any standard. I asked him,  "Would you rather be taken care of? Or would you choose to be Free?".

He thought about it for a bit and replied,   "I want both"!!!!    I assured him that the 2 were mutually exclusive, at which point he indicated that he was currently quite satisfied with his present situation. And who could blame him?
The question is really about 
"Spiritual Adulthood"
 which implies an unconditional responsibility for EVERYTHING, for
everything is a child of your consciousness
born into existence by you... the you that now plays the spiritual role of "Parent".

In that state of consciousness, you do not choose freedom... it is an inherent part of the state. It is not the freedom "From" something. That is how our culture generally discusses freedom and it is not possible to be free "From" a "Thing". Your awareness of the "Thing" makes it active in your vibration and alive in your world. And, you do not need freedom from something that you have dominion over, so there is no need to discard anything. If you had the power to create it, you have the power to re-make it into something you decide is "good" to you. This "Adulthood" is "Inclusive", not "Exclusive"

In this spiritual adulthood, there is no room for the childish toys of religions, authorities, experts, higher-powers, atoms, aliens, dimensions, fears and protections. It's only YOU and your intricate connection to all of "It".

It is the normal progression for the "child" to spiritually "grow up" and become a spiritual adult. Every life you have ever lived is the "childhood" that prepares us for the final "right of passage" where... "It did not seem strange for him to do the works of God".

So, just meditate on the question, "What is Spiritual Adulthood?" or, "How would I know if I am there?"  Then see what happens!

One Creative Moment

 "There is a moment in each day that Satan cannot find nor can his watch fiends find it; but the industrious find this moment and multiply it... And when it once is found, it renovates every moment of the day if rightly placed."
(William Blake)

Whenever we imagine things as they ought to be, rather than as they seem to be... that is
"The Moment" Blake is referring to and the moment that will be illuminated in this writing. For in that moment the spiritual man's work is done and all the great events of time start forth to mould a world in harmony with that moment's altered pattern. 

Satan, Blake writes, is a "reactor". He never acts, he only reacts. And if our attitude to the happenings of the day is  "reactionary", are we not playing Satan's part? Man is only "reacting" when in his natural or Satan state... he never acts or creates, he only reacts or re-creates. 

One real creative moment... one real feeling of the wish full-filled... is worth more than the whole natural life of your reaction to facts. In such a moment you could say, "God's work is done".Once more we may say with Blake:

"God only acts and Is, in existing beings or men."

There is an imaginal past and an imaginal future. When you are reacting, the past is re-created into the present. When you act out your dreams of fancy, with your Imagination, you bring the future into the present.

 "I feel NOW the future in the instant."  

The spiritual man acts: for him, anything that he wants to do, he can do and do immediately in his imagination, and his motto is always, "The Moment is Now".
