Episode 50 Blog/ When BEing Alive is a Grand Adventure

How do you define BEing alive? What is your rule set and defining aligning principles in play about you and Life?

We each come out of family dynamics that have a set up to them. We spend our lives working out of this bias and beliefs systems. You are either in it and okay or looking to be out of it.  What would it be like to be free to value and add excitement into your daily reality at your choosing? Not anxiety but excitement. Safety and self awareness your given.

What if you looked forward to opening your eyes each day and feeling the appreciation as you experience your breath?

Some of us don’t wake up into our day like that. We don’t want to wake up at all.

If this is the case what would it be like to reframe BEing alive into a grand adventure, every moment a choice with awareness to do something, feel something, different? It is all too easy to empower our habituated sense of Self into maintaining the illusions that Life is difficult, wearing, soul draining etc. etc. etc. And then you die!

If this is what lies in your expectation reality so it will be.  If, you are depressed, it defines you. Would you like to have an adventure instead?

If you are frustrated, this defines you. Would you like to have an adventure instead? If you find Life to be full of injustice or conspiracy is everywhere and victims and abusers also predominate your inner landscape, would you like to have an adventure instead?

If you think that no matter what you do nothing changes you too have a setup for misery.

All of these are perspectives of how one can live their lives. All of them are illusions that help us in what way? How are they useful? There is a payoff lurking somewhere. And at times we know it and feel helpless to change it.

What if you could simply get out of your mindset of projected thinking and go deeper than your emotions to the realm within that connects to your core essence of BEing? Deeper than your projections of Self that hold your story /illusions of who and what you are and unfold into a realm of wonder and indescribable beauty? Where every story/illusion is appreciated and can become  transcendent awareness enriching your life?

Something captures your attention. You decide to explore it. You may collect information about it from different sources that validate your interest or not. But you don’t know what something is about until you feel it for yourself. the details in the journey in our adventures are not known no matter how much you research or don’t. The adventure will take you places you have never been, may want to or not but you are better for it. It will have dramatic scenery and people and textures and flavors and moments of comfort and discomfort.  

Danger and excitement. Many think they don't like danger or adventure. They like the quiet and safety of never being challenged emotionally or physically. So they are easily thrown off balance when the stuff that can happens in life happens. Being open to something different, whether it be a bowl of soup or a zipline experience is good for the plasticity of the mind and soul. Doesn’t mean you have to live in a reality of daily risk all around you but being fluid enough to appreciate your own skills and experience you own self confidence.

So take this moment to notice. Notice what your reality state of BEing alive is about and make a choice. You can keep it the same, with it’s perhaps illusionary sense of safety within the boundaries you are imposing. That is a choice. Or perhaps in accessing deeper into your interior landscape of the sacred that is there, you can make a different choice. 

Where you are free to slip your old bonds of Self and expand into new adventures in BEing Alive. Where, Life is Grand.

JIE Episode 49 Blog/ There is No Responsibility in BEing Present


Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet 

Podcast Release Tuesday November 17, 2020

Episode 49 Blog There is No Responsibility in BEing Present

One of the strong integral parts of Self is what we perceive as the doer. In our interacting in BEing physical we manipulate, make action, with our environments and its elements. We are Creator.

When we are doing for ourselves and others obligation and responsibility can come into play. Sometimes we are the oldest child helping our parents’ parent our younger siblings or even our parents. We take on others which can come from caring, or as servitude. It can happen to the point of burden. We become responsible for outcomes that all too often are way beyond our scope of power at the time and results can foster helplessness, guilt and punishment can ensue.

We develop roles and realities that others need to be protected and cared for and are too weak, or sensitive or senseless or stupid to manage their own lives without our interference. They make poor choices they need to be saved from. We form our ideas about others that may have nothing to do with them but both others’ opinions and our own biases and projections.

When we switch to BEing, we free ourselves of our created stories/illusions and their conditions and patterns. We are in the position to notice our patterns of the doer and develop awareness, become mindful of cause and action. We can play with our connection to others as our stories/illusions of Self, adapt, grow, evolve.

It is about unplugging, as my friend and guest this week Rev. Janice Hope Gorman likes to say. It is choosing to disassociate from all the stories around us and mostly in each of us to give pause to allow our inner Self dynamics to relax. We connect with our Core Essence, the Infinite. We can then appreciate, recalibrate and then orchestrate what we are actively creating in any one moment. It is checking in to our self generated projection of reality, our story/illusion of identity. We become self- caring and allow for change where wanted, where desired.  

The stress we are all feeling seems unrelenting right now. There is so much overload or stimuli and information and intensity. People are running emotionally hot, not cool. How to relieve it is by choosing to release it in useful ways. By committing the simple shift through intention to enter into the field of heart centered awareness, of Unified Consciousness, into BEing present, into Oneness. 

We let go of the burden and responsibility of our story/illusion. And each time we do so our burden becomes less. Our story/illusion dictates soften. Our reality starts to reflect new awareness, new expressions, new appreciations. The old truly becomes the past. Our wants, our desires, change shape. What was important is no longer.

In BEing present we do, take action, through BEing. There is no responsibility in BEing, only moving through inspiration. Motivation is outside influences. We use them to inspire us to action. You don’t have to do something in order to BE.

In the quantum field of Consciousness responsibility is just a position, one of infinite positions one can assume. It is not who you are. It is only a position, a place holder in the field that you employ into form. Use it wisely. This is the payoff of BEing present.

Appreciation Transcends The State of Resistant Thought You Are In

 That’s why so many of us teach meditation. Because when you stop thought, you stop resistant thought. When you stop resistant thought, then you let it in. That’s why we teach appreciation, because when you’re in appreciation, you are not in the mode of resistance, and you are letting it in.

Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA on 8/13/01

Our Love
Esther (Abraham and Jerry)

Did you realize that the boundaries in your story/illusion are creating resistant thought? When I read this quote above I realized that I had not thought of it in quite those terms.  

That is exactly what happens. How many times has someone suggested to you an idea, or version of your reality of yourself or some challenge you were dealing with that you automatically rejected? That is resistant thought in action. How much have we missed out in life because we were in a reality state of resistant thought, not open to new awareness?

It is what we do, every human individual on this planet. Our minds are constantly reinforcing its projected belief system and it can do it to a punishing degree, whatever the issue is. That is the power of biases and perceptions that make up our story/illusion mindsets. You have a thought, information and experience comes in and you make discernments. At some tipping point it shifts to a judgment and becomes part of your behavior and a story/illusion element. It become closed to new thoughts and interpretations and Mind goes on to the next thing. It has become you. 

Depending on our nature, we can build a lot of energy as part of the bias and become belligerent and righteous in our viewpoints. Ours is the only story/illusion and it is better than yours. 

Our willingness to accept a new premise or another's awareness of our projection comes from a reality state of Openness. One that is fluid based instead of block based. You know, all those times you felt blocked and there you were. You did not know how to deal with your block and it was all consuming and huge. You could not move it. This is a "powerless to make some thing different" reality state you find yourself to be in. 

What to do? 

Recognize what you are feeling and thinking in your self talk. And realizing that is the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. That this is only where you are in the moment of awareness. Now access your inner wisdom, core essence where out of the quiet of no thought, more information will be available. BE present and ask "What is the value in becoming aware of your setup of thought?" How is this moment useful? What is gained by feeling and then being stymied by your concern? What does it feel like for this to be different? New thoughts as awareness are present. 

Once you are open to new information, your willingness to accept it comes into play. And that too maybe  takes you to awareness of the pattern. Could be of more resistance, or of voices or experiences in the past that are engaged unknowingly, pushing agendas that have coalized into form. It can reveal your pattern of behavior in new ways and at the same time release and unfold into new patterns.  

Any engagement of potential into energy has its form, pattern, vibrational signature in your story/illusion. Notice i am not using words like weak for softer. Softer is a texture. Stronger/weaker is degrees of resistance. . 

This is where we are right now collectively. This is what is possible. Remove the resistance to what has happened. It has happened. That is the past. Recalibrate to a reality state of Appreciation. What shifts when you lose your anger of defiance and resistance to your perceived, projected story of illusion?

Meditation In Times Of Crisis   By C. James Jensen  

I was blessed to have been trained in meditation at an early age. I have been amazed for some time now why so few people in our Western culture do not regularly practice some form of meditation on a daily basis. With the unrest in the world, the Covid-19 pandemic, and current political scene, a quieter mind is important to resist joining the world in a state of fear and turmoil.

The amount of data on the benefits of meditation is abundant. Maybe if we all took time to meditate on the problems around us, we would have the ability to bring calm to the causes of stress from all the outside sources as well as internal fears and anxiety of things like possibly being exposed to this virus. I believe if people could sit with their political frustrations and meditate, they could see past the anger to resolutions to assist the planet with its current struggles. Meditation allows us to step outside situations to see like an eagle from a distance instead of feeling like you're in the eye of a storm.

I know when I feel rundown, fatigued, or concerned that I might become ill, through meditation I can direct energy to any area of my body that I think needs a “boost”, or healing, and most often ward off the physical manifestation of my dis-ease-ness. Knock on wood, but I can’t remember having had a common cold or the flu in over twenty years.

On the mental side, I have had some of my greatest ideas and inspiration come to me in meditation. Meditation quiets the mind. When you quiet your mind, you are able to listen or better hear those thoughts that may come from your higher consciousness or the creative center of your mind.

 Having learned how to meditate has benefited me greatly in my professional life. Approximately 45 minutes before I was to speak to any group, I would find a quiet room and begin to meditate to align and balance. I would ask my Higher Self to please provide me with the most appropriate thoughts for that particular occasion. As I entered meditation, I would not think about my speech, the audience, or how “I” (the ego) was going to act. I would simply quiet my mind, release any stress associated with speaking to a group whether it was to my own employees or other peers.

Many doctors treating children with anxiety have found using meditation to be very useful with their young patients. For many suffering with conditions like ADHD it may be the only thing that will help them quiet the mind for any extended period of time allowing them to relax and be calm.

Meditation also is a wonderful thing to experience as a couple, a way to relax together. My wife Jeri and I have been meditating for years. I think it may be one of the keys to our long and very happy life together.
