Disabled Vet Finds Yoga...

The power of yoga on the Body/Mind system should never be underestimated. I employed a lot of yoga instructors in my past occupation and when I was freed from it, I actually had time to start exploring yoga regularly. 

The first instructor that I started working, was a tiny, Vietnamese woman who was like a liquid human, physically, and her story fits well as additional evidence for the following inspirational video. Before she was a Yoga instructor, she was an engineer for manufacturing company. She grew up in Vietnam and was intelligent and driven to succeed. 

After years of success in that field, she woke up one day with the doctors telling her she needed both knees replaced. The cartilage was completely deteriorated and according to them, irreparable. Years of poor eating habits and lifestyle had taken their toll on her only 50 year old body. Surgery was the ONLY option according to the doctors. 

She knew better and looked for alternatives, then found Yoga. She did Yoga obbsesively and got to the point where she could do 6 Bikram (the hot yoga) in one day! Her knees are completely healed, without surgery or ANY medical intervention. Her doctors dismissed her recovery and just said they must have misdiagnosed it. HA!!!!! I have written more about Yoga click here http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/p/real-yoga.html



The following video is FANTASTIC. This disabled veteran went from 300 lbs, unable to walk unaded, depressed, given up... to standing on his head!!!!


YOGA HEALS! Period!
YOGA is Union
YOGA is Health

DO it!

The Coin of Heaven...

There are 2 aspects of the conscious mind.
  • Thinking, which comes out of a state of consciousness. 
  • And the Imagination which is has the power to change the state of consciousness. 
When thinking is engaged, the Imagination is idle. You are free to choose what aspect of the mind you engage, but only if you are aware of the difference. You can Invest your mind on lovely things, or spend your thought unwisely on negative things. 

Self-talk is self prophecy 

because the mind, through the Imagination, is a creative device that is always ON

The following transcribed lecture from 1953, we have edited for a more contemporary translation. Neville makes this VERY clear and uses the example of a black man in the '50s who overcame the self-imposed limitation of his race, with astonishing results!


SOUND INVESTMENTS
Neville Goddard 1953

I want to share with you today what I consider one of the truly great revelations of all time.

On Sunday morning, April 12th, my wife woke from what was really a deep, profound sleep and as she was waking a voice distinctly spoke to her and speaking with great authority it said to her:

"You must stop spending your thoughts, your time and your money; everything in life must be an investment." 

So she quickly wrote it down and went straight to the dictionary to look up the two important words in the sentence, 'spending' and 'investing'. The dictionary defines 'spending' as "to waste, to squander, to layout without return." To 'invest' is to "layout for a purpose, for which a profit is expected" .

Then I began to analyze the sentence - "You must stop spending your thoughts, your time and your money, for everything in life must be an investment". As I dwelt upon it, I saw where everything is NOW;

That through the portals of the present all time must pass, 

and this psychological NOW, the state of mind in which I find myself now, does not recede into the past. It advances into my future.

So, what I do NOW is the all important thing

and thought is the coin of heaven;

 it is the money of heaven. And so the thought I entertain now, the thought to which I give my consent to, is either my investment, or

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. I am reminded by Neville that;

"Facts always follow, they never precede" 

In other words, something caused everything that exists. 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.

Beliefs... a Product of the Intellect

Isn't it interesting... that even asking the question, 'Isn't it interesting', immediately takes us out of 'what is' and deep into 'mind'... deep into the intellect? 
Let us choose LOVE instead!
These words from Krishnamurti point it out:

"Surely, a man 
who is understanding life does not want beliefs.

A man who loves, has no beliefs... he loves. 

It is the man who is consumed by the intellect who has beliefs

because intellect is always seeking security, protection; it is always avoiding danger, and therefore it builds ideas, beliefs, ideals, behind which it can take shelter.

 What would happen if you dealt with violence directly, now? 

You would be a danger to society; and because the mind foresees the danger, it says "I will achieve

The 2 Contrary States of the Human Soul...


by Tim Che'

Before you were aware of being you, you were only aware of being aware. It is called "Un-
conditioned Awareness"

Now, you are AWARE of being you. And you are aware of the things around you, which are extensions of that awareness.

Your AWARENESS,  has fallen into division for the purpose of self-definition.

When you say, "I Am_______", you are exploring aspects of  Self-definition. It's like trying new clothes to see how they fit.

Cain and Able are personifications of  the two distinct functions of your own consciousness. They are names for the two contrary states of the human soul and it is told as the story of 2 brothers. Each represents a distinct outlook on the world, possessed by everyone. The first is the limited perception of the senses, and the second is the imaginative view of the world.

Cain, the first view, the first born, is a passive surrenderer to appearances. and an acceptance of life on the basis of the world without. This view inevitably leads to unsatisfied longing or to contentment with disillusion. It is also referred to, in modern culture, as the Left-Brain. This is the intellectual side of the mind which relies on logic and reasoning, and is endlessly measuring

Think Cosmically...

To THINK COSMICALLY one must be able to dissolve that which he sees into that which he knows.

Start doing it then by realizing that this objective universe is NOT  made up of many substances and things.

It is made up entirely of electric waves of motion which simulate many substances and things which you have always accepted as real.

The moment you fully realize that not one thing in Nature is what it seems to be, you are beginning to transcend your senses by your growing ability to dissolve what you see into what you know.

That principle constitutes the difference between the one who senses by outward thinking, to the one who knows through inner cosmic thinking.

It marks the line of demarcation between the physical and the spiritual man. He who has passed that line thinks cosmically. He knows cause while he who senses is only aware of effects which he can never know.

~ Excerpt from 'God will work with you but not for you' by Lao Russell

The WOMBan...

"All Men and Women have a WOMb ANd each give birth to the ideas they consent to as the children of their consciousness" (Tim Che')


"Every Man is 'Mary' and birth to 'Christ' must give" (Neville)

here was the embodiment of love saying to his mother, "Woman, what have I to do with thee?"

You are Jesus, and your mother is your own consciousness. For consciousness is the cause of all, therefore, it is the great father-mother of all phenomena.

You and I are creatures of habit. We get into the habit of accepting as final the evidence of our senses. Wine is needed for the guests and my senses tell me that there is no wine, and I through habit am about to accept this lack as final. When I remember that my consciousness is the one and only reality, therefore if I deny the evidence of my senses and assume the consciousness of having sufficient wine, I have in a sense rebuked my mother or the consciousness which suggested lack

Detachment... Another Form of Deception

This is an important subject to understand in the quest to free the mind. We must endeavor to cultivate the mind as 'witness' as opposed to 'reactor' in order to see clearly how easily we are deceived. Many people like to preach "Detachment", only to unwittingly be creating a new "attachment" called "detachment"... hence, the deception. The words of the Buddha speak the truth... but the opposite of attachment is not detachment as our logical minds would incorrectly conclude. It's a tricky business, and I think Krishnamurti sets us straight with his words below:

"We are the things we possess, we are that to which we are attached. 
 Attachment has no nobility

 Attachment to knowledge is not different from any other gratifying addiction. Attachment is self-absorption, whether at the lowest or at the highest level. 

Attachment is self-deception, it is an escape from the hollowness of the self. The things to which we are attached, property, people, ideas, become all-important, for without the many things which fill its emptiness, the self is not. 

The fear of not being makes for possession; and fear breeds illusion, 
the bondage to conclusions. 

Conclusions, material or ideational, prevent the fruition of intelligence, the freedom in which alone reality can come into being; and without this freedom, cunning is taken for intelligence. The ways of cunning are always complex and destructive. It is this self-protective cunning that makes for attachment; and when attachment causes pain, it is this same cunning that seeks detachment and finds pleasure in 
the pride and vanity of renunciation.

 The understanding of the ways of cunning, the ways of the self, is the beginning of intelligence."


"There is only attachment; there is no such thing as detachment. 

The mind invents detachment as a reaction to the pain of attachment. 

When you react to attachment by becoming "detached" you are attached to something else.

So that whole process is one of attachment. You are attached to your wife or your husband, to your children, to ideas, to tradition, to authority, and so on; and your reaction to that attachment is detachment. The cultivation of detachment is the outcome of sorrow, pain. You want to escape from the pain of attachment, and your escape is to find something to which you think you can be attached. So there is only attachment, and it is a stupid mind that cultivates detachment. All the books say, "Be detached" but what is the truth of the matter? If you observe your own mind, you will see an extraordinary thing that 


 through cultivating detachment, your mind is becoming attached to something else."
- Krishnamurti, J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

Because YOU are there...

"I see you are worshiping days and months, seasons and years; I'm afraid I have labored over you in vain." 

When I see a man I thought had outgrown these little concepts, turn back to images and days, months, seasons, and years, and call them holy - when there is no such thing in God's kingdom - I feel like Paul, that my labor has been in vain. 

Every moment of time is holy and wherever you stand is holy. 

It may be a bar, but it is a holy place, because you are there. Others may say it is wrong, but I ask you: who is standing there? God, and wherever God is, is holy ground. This is true of every person in the world, but they do not know it. 
(Neville)

Your Mind and the Creation

"He who builds gods in his own image builds idols for his worshipping . He whose idol is fear and wrath cannot know the god of love.  Until you know the god of love you are what your idol is, a miserable sinner to whom mercy must be shown by your idol who you, yourself, are.  And you will be punished for your imagined self-made sins by you, yourself,  for the idol you worship will show you no mercy until you are freed from him by knowing love"

Water and Lao Russell

Ever wonder about archons, aliens, devils, demons, satans and the like? Why is it that they are always hidden? Why is it that they only seem to affect or be seen by some people and not everyone?  What are they actually? And what about the New-Age movement with its multi-dimensions, ascended masters, and channelings? The following video is the best explanation we have come across to date and it is based on the work of Walter and Lao Russell who was a living, illumined human being here on earth. This is all about the mind and its creative ability and power, keyed high or low. Watch it and learn a truth about who you are and a way to balance the thought-created energies aforementioned. InJoy!

OK, Time for a little disclaimer here... 

The first 20 minutes of this video is priceless! The rest is a conversation by the 2 devout students of the Russell's lives works, which has a great deal of merit. When the conversation moves to the notion that it is OK, karma-wise, to physically defend property, family, community, nation etc. This is obviously their interpretation of what they have learned, and does not resonated with ours. To us, the need to defend is born out of a deep inner pattern of the mind for survival which has not yet been balanced. We have found that the best way to balance structures of the mind is through Ho'Oponopono and we recommend reading more about that at this page; http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/p/hooponopono.html

We will leave this video up because the first 20 minutes is mind-changing. Just know that we generally do not post, even really good content. if there is even one "Red Flag" in it that we find incongruent with what we have come to understand.

Action and Abundance

"Your action has nothing to do with your abundance! Your abundance is a response to your vibration. Of course, your belief is part of your vibration. So if you believe that action is part of what brings your abundance, then you've got to unravel that". - Abraham
 We all have been taught our entire lives, and our whole culture is wrapped up in the idea that, "you have to work hard for_____".   That, "________ has to be earned"  Put anything in the blank and you get the idea. There is also a pervasive feeling that we are not worthy and must pay with labor, suffering, money, time etc.

It is all ERROR!

This blog is only concerned with Truth & Error, which has nothing to do with Right or Wrong. The above Abraham quote is Truth and has proven itself in the testing. The only action or effort required is that which unravels the limiting mental ideas and matching your vibration with your defined success.

The simple fact that you exist, makes you worthy of anything and everything you deem worthy of  desiring. And don't forget it. Pay attention to your vibration and 'tune' it towards your lovely outcomes then celebrate your existence while you explore even brighter horizons!
 This video explains it clearly:

Power Through Experience...

“a veritable San Andreas Fault in the American psyche: the personality’s wish to have power over experience, to control all events and consequences, and the soul’s wish to have power through experience, no matter what that may be.”

Whyte, David. The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. New York: Doubleday, 1994. 1-30.

Here is a link to a great summary of a wonderful book, especially for any of us seekers who are, or http://www.shkaminski.com/Classes/Readings/Whyte.htm
have been, in the work-world.

The above quote is very revealing and explains a lot about the 'Why are we here?' question. It is easy to see the truth of this quote in all aspects of life, modern or ancient. This, again, outlines the prodigal purpose of life. Read our earlier post on The Prodigal Son http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-prodigal-son-mystical-revelation.html

Our personality/intellect/thinking-mind loves the idea of controlling everything but the overriding and overpowering desire of the soul always seems to get its way. We may think we want something but the soul wants the greater power, through experience, that may have nothing to do with what we think. Ever notice that in your life?

The Pursuit of Visions and Experiences Leads to Illusions and Self-Hypnosis

"What an extraordinary thing meditation is. If there is any kind of compulsion, effort to make thought conform, imitate, then it becomes a wearisome burden. The silence which is desired ceases to be illuminating. If it is the pursuit of visions and experiences, then it leads to illusions and self-hypnosis. Only in the flowering of thought and so ending thought does meditation have significance. Thought can only flower in freedom, not in ever-widening patterns of knowledge. Knowledge may give newer experiences of greater sensation but a mind that is seeking experiences of any kind is immature. Maturity is the freedom from all experience; it is no longer under any influence to be or not to be.Maturity in meditation is the freeing of the mind from knowledge, for knowledge shapes and controls all experience. A mind which is a light to itself needs no experience. Immaturity is the craving for greater and wider experience. Meditation is the wandering through the world of knowledge and being free of it to enter into the unknown." - Krishnamurti, Krishnamurti Notebook,213

Using No Way as Way... Having No Limitation as Limitation

Bruce Lee is one of those extremely rare examples of a human being who reached his physical, mental and spiritual potential. Most people only have passingly heard of him as an actor/martial artist but have no idea how driven he was toward those aforementioned human attributes. PHYSICALLY he trained up to 16 hours a day, and could perform miraculous physical feats, which required intense MENTAL concentration. Spiritually, he pushed philosophy to the boudaries of understanding which is where he realized his famous quote in the title of this post. The accompanying YouTube is worthy of your viewing. It is the documentary we are discussing, Bruce Lee, A Warriors Journey. 

I recall early on in my 'awakening', that I bought my brother-in-law, who was into martial arts, the DVD documentary of his short life, with the full intention that I would borrow it to watch myself. There were many impressive moments throughout and I will highlight a few here:

  • Remember the old TV detective show Longstreet, about a blind detective in the early '70's? Well, I guess I've dated myself now! Bruce made a cameo appearance on a few episodes and give some powerful philosophical messages... "Without method, what is there to teach?" "I have found the cause of my ignorance"  "Be like water, my friend".
  • His dream was to create a TV show entirely about Eastern Philosophy and that is what birthed one of my favorite shows of all time... "Kung Fu". The producers were nervous about him, being oriental, being the lead, so they chose David Carradine. When asked in an interview about how he felt about that, his answer shows the depth of his maturity.
  • His intensive training resulted in a 6 month hospital stay flat on his back where he focused all of his intensity on studying philosophy... particularly, Jiddu Krishnamurti. There is one clip they show of Krishnamurti saying, 

"You must be a light unto yourself! In a world that is in utter darkness" 
I was so entranced by that short clip that I said to myself,   "I don't know who that guy is, but I have to find out more". So I went to the bookstore and his book...
"Freedom From The Known"
Lit up like a Christmas tree on the shelf. That book is essential reading to anyone endeavoring to Know Themselves.

To BE is to be Related...


"Without relationship, there is no existence: 



To be is to be related. 

 Most of us do not seem to realize this; that the world is my relationship with others, whether one or many. My problem is that of relationship. 


What I am... that (is what) I project, and obviously, if I do not understand myself, the whole of relationship is one of confusion in ever-widening circles.

So, relationship becomes of extraordinary importance, not with the so-called mass, the crowd, but in the world of my family and friends, however small that may be, my relationship with my wife, my children, my neighbor.

 In a world of vast organizations, vast mobilizations of people, mass movements, we are afraid to act on a small scale; we are afraid to be little people clearing up our own patch. We say to ourselves, "What can I personally do? I must join a mass movement in order to reform." On the contrary,


real revolution takes place not through mass movements but through the inward revaluation of relationship

that alone is real reformation, a radical, continuous revolution. We are afraid to begin on a small scale. Because the problem is so vast, we think we must meet it with large numbers of people, with a great organization, with mass movements. Surely, we must begin to tackle the problem on a small scale, and the small scale is the "me" and the "you." 


When I understand myself, I understand you,

 and out of that understanding comes love. Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action which produces further confusion, further misery. We fill our hearts with blueprints for world reform and do not look to that one resolving factor which is love." - Krishnamurti, J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

Scriptural Language...


Biblical Language
Neville Goddard

"All are Men in Eternity. Rivers, Mountains, Cities, Villages,
All are Human, and when You enter into Their Bosoms,
You walk In Heavens and Earths;
Just as in Your own Bosom You bear Your Heaven And Earth,
and all that You behold, though it appears Without, it is Within,
In Your Imagination of which this World of Mortality is but a Shadow." 

(William Blake's Jerusalem, Plate 71:17)

You may ask yourself what Blake is talking about, yet this is the language of the Bible. Biblical language evokes rather than describes. It is telling of another world, another Man and another age; for in truth, all of the places in the Bible are aspects of human consciousness.

In the Book of Revelation, John sees Jerusalem become a woman, descending out
