three beautiful things......for a wet thursday.

my friends who are helping me move and are keeping my legs moving even though i`m stressing..................

the weird and wonderful world of derren brown. his videos are available on google. prepare to be amazed.

there are those who say that spiritual work isn`t to be happy, but y`know..........some people are never satisfied.

my view is plainly that it`s about the joy. what we focus on is what we get more of.

if we engage in a practice that makes us reflect on what we like..................


............we might just get more.

this is over 2000 years old.........

hey people, this is over 2000 years old, shows precise, scientific knowledge of metalurgy, astronomy, machine tooling etc...............

someone has been telling lies about science being a modern process.

and lying about some other stuff too.

memory pill.

http://60minutes.yahoo.com/segment/21/memory_drug

this drug doesn`t diminish the memory of a specific event. it changes the chemistry of the brain..........

can you say "side-effects?".

birds.

the birds were sitting in the trees along the railway tracks. i noticed them as i rode my bike home this afternoon, not because they were sitting in the trees, but because they were making so much noise. thier singing was so loud that they got my attention over the din of traffic along fairview street. thier singing and the fact that there was so many of them. there must have been 3 or 400 of the little guys spread out over four or five trees. i stood and watched and listened to them for several minutes before all of a sudden they went quiet and one group from a smaller tree surged up into the air and landed in the bigger one and they all began singing again.

it makes me wonder what could have possibly been the reason for all the noise and movement. the jostling for position continued in smaller groups as i watched, but nothing as profound as that one gesture.

mysterious and beautiful at the same time.

and then i got on my bike and left them to thier inscrutable ritual.

tim strikes again.

tim boucher, in his blog, www.popocculture.com has, once again, provided a perfect posting to summerise my position regarding speaking one`s mind.

http://www.timboucher.com/journal/2006/11/27/reduce-reuse-recycle/#comments

try it before you buy it.

the solution may come in the form of a trial run.

try to be positive about things and physically and consciously remove as much negative imput from your life as possible for a set period of time............

say 21 days.

get a calendar and post your days of positive programming, and simply begin.

like physical dieting it does mean that you have to cut certain things out, mind you.

here`s a list of recommendations.

tv.
newspapers.
talk radio and news programmes.
discussions of a negative, political or religious nature.
negative thinking.


these are things that get one attracting more misery. they are designed to do this deliberately, the miserable person consumes more.

remember that you are only going to do this for 21 days and then you are free to go back to the old way of doing things.

proof that we are the creator.

ok, so which sort of proof?

science cannot calibrate or measure consciousness, though they hold out psychiatry as a means. religion fails in a similar way for different reasons. politics and it`s sciences don`t give a shit one way or another as long as you vote..........and philosophy got bogged down some time ago regarding shadows in a cave.

so, it`s really down to you and me.


do you have the confidence in your own ability to be creative and positive about your life? there are plenty of reasons to feel either good or bad about things and so it really comes down to which way you decide to go.

and that being said, i guess you must be creator.....................at least of your own little patch.

3bt

friendship on the soccer field.

Sunday, November 26, 2006

to not understand.

to not understand that we are the gods who make the grass green is the master accomplishment of the thing we call culture.

it is the thing that media created to dull our minds toward material pursuits that we can never attain.

the media is designed to make us behave in such a way as to tire us completely. to exhaust us so that we have no ability to think in spiritual or energetic or creative terms.

like pouring a cup of water into the ocean in the hope of seeing it rise, we continue to want more things. this consumerist urge is driven by culture from the time we can remember our first thought.

to begin to understand what i`m talking about you must despise culture so much as to begin to turn it off.

bit by bit you must ignore newspapers, tv, magazines and anything else that delivers a window on the artificiality of media.

including conversations about it.

when you have done this long enough, and only you can say how long this will take, you will start to become aware of something else.................

understanding.


when you stop listening for opinion and value and method from elsewhere you begin to think for yourself, from areas in your brain that maybe haven`t been used for a while.

these areas of your brain or consciousness begin to activate when they realise that you aren`t hypnotised any longer.

then the fun begins.


but remember........there are those who would have you nailed to a tree for thinking this way.

you can tell who they are even today by the little gold crosses they wear around thier necks.

conflict.

in conflict there comes comfort. there comes a justification......when others will take up the cause. but what`s it all for?

if we can discuss things for long enough then points of view can become clear and the level of tension diminshes.

but see what dies?

the universe that contains the conflict....................


if we become so intensely focused on the universe that we decide is real, then we act as if we didn`t create it and that we have no power over it whatsoever.

which is bullshit of the highest calibre.

but it can be the greatest thing imagineable.

if you build a universe of love and compassion and gratitude and sharing and understanding...........of yourself.

pretty soon you will have forgotten that you decided that this was the way things were. but the people, places and things that emerged in your reality, that were attracted to you ideas and concepts and actions, will be acting in accordance with your views anyway. they will be proving your thesis all the while.

it`s happening every nanosecond of every day we exist in consciousness.

we are begining to wake up to it.

i think with better and faster means of communication more people are getting the message...........that we are the ones who make things real.


for a moment imagine i`m right, what are you going to dare to create for yourself and those you love?

criticism

there will always be criticism. it is a natural part of opinion. those who are confident enough in thier own opinion tend to be tolerant of the opinion of others, but occasionally there are those who have desire to discuss thier views in a confontational fashion. and so, with the greatest of balance and tact it can be useful to counter agressive disagreement, for the developement of communication and the understanding that people have the right to have a different perspective on a subject.

this position goes further to the idea that we are the creators of our universe.

otherwise, why cling to a position to the death?

you must believe something is going to die if you change your mind.

Friday, November 24, 2006

when it comes to the spirit.

when it comes to the spirit, we have to realise that it`s all up to us.

there is nobody else, incarnate or otherise.

you can have faith in whatever you like...............but the reproduceable fact is that we are the one`s making this shit real.

and when you read and disagree with my position you are just validating it.

its not that you are caught in some clever semantic trick of my devising, it`s just that our consciousness is what`s driving the universe.

the question i have to ask is.................. why do some people have to focus on the negative?

do they like it?

does it make them appear consciensious?

clever?

what it does is ensure that they`ll have more of what they`re focussing on.


when you realise that the universe works that way and that you`ve seen the proof in your own life then all you have to do is adjust your focus.

the material and the spiritual.

we are spiritual creatures having a material experience.

so let`s enjoy the journey.

i am criticised by some on the path that feel that the focus on the material is somehow injurious or possibly even morally wrong.

my message to them is that we need to celebrate the material in all it`s abundance and take advantage of what we have manifested in front of our very eyes.

we are doing it.............

so why deny an essential aspect of ourselves?

and i do expect an answer.

there is only one thing.................

we are looking at pictures and talking to ourselves.

there is nothing else.

we are dreaming this whole thing.

you are inside your head right now comparing what you have just read to what you know..............

......................and accepting or rejecting based on that function.

3bt. 21st november 2006.

the cold night air as i ride.

the bird`s nests in the trees, visible now that the leaves have fallen.

getting my apartment. a space of my own. to arrive and close the door and know that i am alone.

golden.

the secret.

i really want a mercedes. not a new expensive one, just a nice clean used one about 10 or more years old that i can maintain. they are made like tanks and drive well and look nice too. i have been seeing myself driving one more recently.

my business partner says to me the other day, "you know, i bought this 1980 mercedes 280 e and i was wondering if you`d like to drive it..........."

well, you have to watch the movie called the secret to understand the deeper meaning of my partner`s kindness.

what we ask for resonates with the universe.

the universe has been waxing my mercedes for me now for weeks, waiting for me to take further action.

a sneaky quiz..................

i post this occsionally as a reminder to myself and to others about presuppositions.

it is well worth the time going through and trying to answer honestly...............

telling stories.

one of my favorite things, when i was a child, was to hear stories being told. whether it was my father or a radio show or on tv. it didn`t matter. i just loved to become immersed in the story and become part of the action.

i`m like that to this day.

my therapy sessions consist of stories interlinked together in a weave of metaphor and symbolism that leads the client into a suggestive state of possibility in healing, laughter, change, discovery and challenge.

i think my clients like thier stories because they think it hypnotises, which is why they came. what is really happening is they are changing thier beliefs through the story-telling. they wouldn`t do it if i just told them to change and gave them technical reasons for doing so.

they suspend one belief for long enough for another to be accepted.

cheating at 3bt....................

today was too beautiful. it was, and still is, hovering around freezing outside but we got together and played football (soccer.....) this morning and it was wonderful. like cold water, once you are in it``s great.
the ages of players varied from early twenties to mid seventies and everyone had thier moments on the ball. the young ones ran and the older ones played wise.

how many beautiful things is that?

and that`s not even mentioning the starbucks coffee or the pretty girls or the conversations or plans for this evening with my children.

three beautiful things....................again.

waking up at 9.30 am on saturday and realising i got a full night`s sleep after going too hard all week.

realising i`ve only got 12 days until i move to my new apartment.


realising that i have good friends that have helped and supported me in this last few months while my life decided to fly upside down for a while.

three beautiful things.........

the fog tonight.............as th e sun went down the fog rolled in, and as we drove to oakville along the highway it became thicker until we could only see red haze in front of us to indicate the cars ahead. beautiful and slightly unnerving at the same time.

memories of spending the evening with my children last night and knowing there will be more to come.

a game of soccer with friends in the inflatable dome in oakville, on astroturf. even though we lost 3-2 it was a great time.

my buddha head is smiling at me from on top of the guitar amp as i sit here................he knows.

check this site out..........

http://www.pathwaytohappiness.com/journal/

it was like reading my own words at times. very cool and very comforting to know that there are other ministers of unconditional love out there.

love yourself no matter what happens. even if you never use capital letters in your writing. even if your hair falls out. even if you smile all the time and people wonder what you are on. even if you openly display affection for your children. even if you ride your bike all over town, winter and summer...........and it`s not an environmental statement. even if you use the word fuck in a blog posting about love.

even if.............

the observer effect.

In science, the observer effect refers to changes that the act of observing has on the phenomenon being observed. For example: observing an electron will change its path because the observing light or radiation contains enough energy to disturb it.
In quantum mechanics, if the outcome of an event has not been observed, it exists in a state of superposition, which is being in all possible states at once. The most famous example is the thought experiment Schrödinger’s cat, in which the cat is neither alive nor dead until observed — until that time, the cat is both alive and dead (technically half-alive and half-dead in probability terms).

again, i pinched this paragraph from tim boucher`s site, www.popocculture.com i don`t think he`ll mind.............

the observer effect. it basically says that we are the one`s who decide the outcome of things. whether they be experiments or business decisions of affairs of the heart we are the ones who decide the outcome............beforehand.

science, or certainly a growing branch of it, is coming around to what the rest of us already knew........careful what you wish for.

it`s so well known that it`s in common usage in language.

"careful what you wish for."

the new age thinking that says that we are god and that what we think creates reality is now being proven by science.............

i believe that with the more common use of the internet and open discussion of these ideas we will see a gradual falling back to meditation and a spiritual practice amongst society that will leave the modern church scambling to get thier parishorers to return.

by then it will be too late.

the frayed edges of the church in our society is finding it harder and harder to convince people to come and listen to the minister. this fraying will get worse as media gets more of what people are interested in in front of them.

politically we have taked a step back fifty years recently but that is going to change pretty soon. i`m not an advocate of political solutions to spiritual issues because they are personal paths, not class issues, but the conservative, religious right promoted church culture non stop for the last seven years.

people need to be given spiritual choices as opposed to dogma. there are already three million laws on the books pertaining to how we relate to eachother, we don`t need laws to frame our relationship with divinity.

the strength of the divine takes care of that.

a picture................................

thanks to tim boucher for producing this diagram illustrating the pathways of universes or seperate consciounesses that can occasionally jump or blend or twist or otherwise come into contact with eachother. this may be an explanation for ghosts, esp, psychic phenomina, miracles, magic, intuition, creativity and the existance of the very universe it`s self.

we are the ones....................

http://www.timboucher.com/journal/2006/11/14/the-miracles-of-jesus-christ/

we are all able to do this. i think that was jesus` message to us.

i think this is where the modern church fails the message and the people.

those three things.

patrick roy inducted into the hockey hall of fame.

my tom thomson book.

finding my new apartment yesterday.

i will post three things that i recognise as pleasurable and beautiful occasionally. i realise that there are those that do this daily and i encourage the practice as one of abundance.

i tend to get distracted by so many other things that interest me or spring to mind as i`m riding the bike that i will probably forget.........but i guess i`m still focussing on beautiful things anyay.

what does enlightenment mean?

it is a term that is used frequently these days so i thought i`d scratch the shiny polished surface of this word and see what i might find underneath.
one can assume that the term refers to the spiritual developement of the consciousness. we all agree on what that means, right?
well, what does that mean.....?
we assume that spirit can develop and that it is somehow benificial to do so, like training your muscles to get stronger by lifting weights.
i see this approach used often by people , characterised as a path or way. as if they are moving towards something that is quantifiable and that there will be something different and somehow better for them when they arrive.
that makes it pretty hard to be satisfied with the ever present now doesn`t it?

to me, enlightenment means being less heavy and seeing things more clearly. an ease of movement and of consciousness allowing creativity, love and caring. being able to see the beauty, abundance and sheer joy of being alive is a treasure that, even though the feeling visits for fleeting moments sometimes, it is a comfort.........knowing that the feeling will return again.

the opposite of cranky?

Monday, November 13, 2006

is science a religion?

i am constantly revisiting this question for the simple reason that most people pre-suppose that if a concept has science behind it then it must be valid and true. the statement that something has been proven a scientific fact makes people go into a deep trance whereby everything that is said afterwards is accepted as true.

there are so many situations in modern society where the sciences are wielded as weapons against criticism that it is hard to find a place to start.

i will start with hypnosis because it`s a field i have some expertise in.

the medical and psychiatric profession has long held that hypnosis is dangerous on one hand while saying that it doesn`t exist as a measureable treatment on the other. science`s lack of ability to measure, calibrate and synthesize the process is what causes them the concern in reality, but they use fear as a way to illegitimize the modality to thre general public.

this is a tool of the church to make people afraid to use traditional methods of prayer and worship, leaving only the church as a spiritual refuge. the wars that rage around the world as we gather here are mostly conflicts of ideology.

what else does science do that is like the church?

it asks us to accept events and processes on faith and accept unproveable ideas as fact.

the big bang.

gravity.

evolution.

the origin of humans on the planet to begin with.

industrial emmissions are causing global warming.

these are the first issues that come to mind. one`s that science and politicians like to swagger around with and expect us to not question thier validity..........though a logical mind will ask obvious questions like, um, what exactly is gravity? or clarify the big bang thingy in layman`s terms will you? with a straight face please, and try to make it sound at least slightly different from the seven days of creation from the bible.

three beautiful things........

my guitars.
my children.
my health.
my bald head.
my devilish grin.
the sunrise.
the children playing in the schoolyard.
the escarpment.
the hindi girl who owes me a phone call.
the scottish girl who`s phone number i need to ask for.
the eagle flying high above simply doing his job.
magnum the dog. his love is unconditional.
starbucks coffee.
another starbucks coffee.
my soul which burns with the passion for life.

that`s more than three isn`t it?

oh well. such is the beauty of life.............and i didn`t even begin to mention the works of beethoven and mozart and flamenco guitar and seeing yes live and all the other bands, too numerous to mention.......and, of course love it`s self. for the self. deep inside.

and thank you alan watts wherever you are. your laughter sings in my ears this moment.

beautiful thing.

the animal nature of such a beast is a joy to behold. it`s panther-like profile and it`s hunched attiude give the impression it`s just waiting to be unleashed somewhere without the restriction of things like speed limits or transport trucks in the passing lane.

oh, to be free at 300km/hr............or however long you dare to maintain that speed.

three beautiful things.

http://threebeautifulthings.blogspot.com/

what a great idea to stay focussed on the positive and the abundantly beautiful.

from now on i will try to post three beautiful things on a regular basis.

here`s todays;

1. reading beating tottenham 3-1 today.

2. my two boys and our time together today.

3. my dreams of a new mercedes. thanks to all the designers, engineers, assembly workers, salesmen and everyone else in the mercedes organisation for making such a car available.

Sunday, November 12, 2006

yep.

i`ve been to jeruselem, the vatican, and the pyramids. they`re called sacred places. but they`re just dirt and some angry people fighting..........

carlos santana.

what is this life......................?

well, we`ve discovered that life isn`t what`s on the surface. that`s a front put up by the societal mask, designed to steal our individuality.

this theft is necessary for the greater good mind you. without it there would be chaos.

the theft of individuality is ane easy one to correct though. it a takes a decision and a discipline to stay away from mechanisms and agencies of programming and propaganda.
the challenge is that sometimes the agent is a friend or lover or boss or teacher......................

once you start to meet the challenge the mask falls away and you realise that you can build your new life any way you wish to.

so what do you wish?

gnostic.

What is a gnostic?A gnostic is someone who lives by the truth of gnosis which says that the divine can only be experienced through personal experience, achieved through introspection, awareness and respect for all other beings because all beings contain the divine spark. Gnosis is available to anyone at any time.Gnostics, like any revolutionaries, are motivated by love and compassion for others. We are teachers of self re-discovery in an age of fear and personal distrust. We are not elitist – the divine intuition is available to anyone and everyone. We are not world hating – we are against anything that crushes the divinity in the relationships between living beings.The primary goal of the gnostic is the end of all “gnostics” – the rediscovery of the profundity of experience by every being which renders the term useless; the dismantling of the Black Iron Prison in gnostic mythology.

i got this definition of a gnostic in my travels. if i`ve swiped someone`s writing i apologise but i think the message is important enough to be clarified this way.

as you might have guessed, this definition best describes my spiritual position.

the divine can only be experienced by personal experience.

the priests are fabulists.........................

Friday, November 10, 2006

question............s

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdgrape_3

how fast will a computer have to be before it can be conscious?

is this a trick question?

fabulist.

a writer of fables.........but also, a liar.

i read the word fabulist for the first time today. i love words. they create reality as they are read and spoken. i was fascinated to see the juxtaposition of the words fable and lie as common in origin through the action of the person known as a fabulist.

says a lot about mirriam-webster`s view of fables.............

my worst fear.

is that god is a disincarnate entity sitting in a high place creating all of this and allowing us free will on top of all that.

that would be a cruel fate.

my father expained his theology to me that way when i was a child and i was horrified. i though what kind of sick joker would create things that way........and then send his agents down to convince us to worship him on top of all that.

it sounded more like the actions of some imagined tyrant.

stop imagining tyrants and they won`t continue to appear.

imagine yourself being able to provide for yourself and your family and living a happy life of provision and abundance.

definitions of god.

i the last posts we seem to be touching on differences regarding the difinition of god.

to me god is the creator of everything we can possibly see, hear, smell, touch and taste and react to emotionally.

some feel as if this person or entity is a disincarnate consciousness that is outside of our scope of understanding and that we should accept this on faith and just go about our business and let the priests update us as things progress.

that works for some.

some feel as if god is a mad spirit doing what he wants randomly. the archon of gnostic belief.

some feel as if we are all different parts of the same consciousness split up into billions of micro-consciousnesses all experiencing this reality from different perspectives.

i feel as if we are all an individual god of our own personal universe that may in some way co-incide with the god idea of the last paragraph. i also feel in some way that we`ve been on this ride before and we are trying to get a better result this time.
then there are moments where it all seems so totally random as to be almost be futile..............but then the sun comes out and the birds sing and a beautiful girl smiles.

what i do know is that what one focusses on long enough becomes real.

so the random/futile shit gets file 13.

and i will choose free will.

and the answer is...................

http://www.freakonomics.com/blog/2006/04/16/are-you-ready-for-swimming-pool-season/

the reason why i like questions like that is because it forces us to look underneath the thin surface of everything we assume is a certain way.

there is so much fuss made over guns that most wouldn`t think that swimming poosl kills more children than guns do in a year.

what other questions can you think of that need answering?

like, what exactly is a big bang anyway?..........and explain gravity while you`re at it.

compartmentalisation.

compartmentalisation is a common practice in organisations. it serves many purposes, all of which serves to allow control of people within the group. they are only told what they need to do thier job and no more. for the majority this causes little concern. people do thier job and go home to bed at the end of the day and start again tomorrow. the only time there is a problem is if the individual has to act independant of the organisation.

this is true in clubs, associations, leagues, teams, political parties, gangs, the police, the army and religions.

and in society in general.

you only need to know enough to do your job and then quietly retire................

but we are realising there is more.

so where do we go and what do we do?

keep asking questions my friends...........and pay attention to the answers.

here is a question i saw tonight.

what is more dangerous; a gun or a swimming pool?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061108/ap_on_el_ge/eln_voting_problems

i have a rule about politics. i don`t waste my time. but i will make an exception here because i want something stated for the record. because the democrats got the result they wanted there is nothing wrong with the electorial system and electronic ballots etc. if the republicans had held the house then we would have been exposed to endless hours of spit and piss over tampering and conspiracies and skull and bones..........and bush joy-sticking hurricaines into florida...........

if i was god.

if you were god, what would you do?

ok. now think, what was the first thing you decided to do as god?

give yourself a raise................................................?


realise that you are god now.

realise that all you look at is your creation. because you have decided everything about what you are looking at. you have owned it. now it can respond as you choose by making you feel how you want to feel.

that makes you a god.........

wow.

you do this all the time. every day, all day long.

once you notice yourself doing this you realise that you must be god, or one of many billions of forms of consciousness all experiencing this thing called life now.

so just sit back and enjoy the show. it`s about to begin.

do you remember your dreams?

not the ones we experience when we are sleeping, but the ones we experience when we are awake. the ones the, if we follow them, turn to excitement and the belief that things are possible in htis world if we persist.

those kind of dreams.

similar to the ones that drive people on to great things.

we beinfit from those who dream properly. they see the pictures and then allow themselves to step inside what they see long enough to make it happen. we beifit from those who dream properly because the make things and do things for us that we need and enjoy.

like computers and houses and cars and guitars and amplifiers and soccer stadiums..............

you get the point.

all started with a dream.

do you remember yours?

the futility of uselessness.

or, if you prefer, the uselessness of futility.

these feelings come occasionally. they are a natural effect of being alive. they happen because of the seeming randomness of life and physical reality.

but the events are temporary.
time, as we have constructed it, marches on. then the next thing comes along. are you prepared or are you still licking your wounds?

set forward.

deciding to bond with things, to say, "ah, finally" when something good happens or get upset when the bad things happen is a way to stagnate and to stop the flow of creativity, and you don`t want that.

set forward.

you have to set your sail each day and to press on toward your goal. the vision you have. the dream.

set forward.

it`s pretty simple. the world you have created is a product of the pictures you have showed yourself in your mind and how you spoke to yourself as a response.

you are hallucinating and talking to yourself. so is everyone else. we are all in the same boat. and that`s good news.

set forward.

how you act and how you react............

not only how you act forms your reality, but how you react also. when we see something we desire we do certain specific things in our minds that attract or repell what it is we are percieving.
the gold guitars and the orange rocket are examples of things that are desirous to us. we can go on at length about media conditioning and materialism if we want but the fact remains. we want these types of things to play with.

if we are really honest with ourselves.

there are those who have a position that it is somehow wrong to want things, but they are merely creating that state for ego purposes. the fact still remains.

the hierarcy of needs as pointed out by maslow clearly says that once one has satisfied the need for food, fuel and shelter then one begins to look toward creature comforts and companionship.

it`s the way we are.

the struggle with elements of this function creates, or is driven by, neurosis.

not everyone wants an italian sports car or a vintage electric guitar, i was using those as good, clear examples. your desires are different.

a house on a hill possibly, or a castle..........or a downtown penthouse and a limousine?

people do live this way and are quite normal in thier thinking. they`ve just wanted things longer and with clearer intent.

this is the nature of our consciousness and spirit. it is what it means to be alive and here in physical form.

we are doing it already. we just forgot we are doing it.

from gold to orange.

perfect little orange scramer. it`s a lamborgini gallardo by the way. whatever you call it it`s still beautiful. just another manifestation of the abundance of things around us, when we choose to notice. this one was growling around burlngton yesterday enjoying the fall sun.

setbacks...........revisited briefly.

not that i enjoy setbacks but they are an opportunty for a test of the emergency optimism network.
today i lost an apartment/office suite that had been offered to me for december 1st in a building with a healthfood store in an area with other practitioners and affluent shopping and restaurants.
two hours later i had made deal for living accomodation and a similar office in the same area.

set forward............

i will not be swayed from my focus and my goals.

i am grateful for the opportunity for the test.

set forward.

i like the concept so much that i just had to repeat it here.

set forward.

you keep saying it and it makes greater sense eachtime.

set forward.

i forgot the problem now.

set forward.

opposites.......

what is the opposite of setback?

set forward.

when recieving a setback, always be planning a set forward as quickly as possible.

set forward.

the apartment/office i was to have moved into on december 1st has been rented to someone else. i found this out today. two hours later i found better acommodation.

fuck it. set forward.


i could have gone home and felt sorry for myself and got plenty of support and legal advice but i`ve got things to do and need to get on with making the arrangements needed to accomplish my goals.

set forward.

my new concept for living.

set forward.

nice.

negatives.

the human mind cannot process a negative. any fact is taken at face value, objectively accepted as a functional fact. for instance, the command don`t fall........is processed as falling. then deconstructed regarding intent.
so look at this;

the images and statements made go directly to the part of the mind that accepts things unconditionally and then the behaviour is adopted. these people knew this already.

nice.

created realities.

i firmly believe that we all live in realities that are tailored, to varying degrees, to meet our personal needs and expectations.
i believe that we can create our own specific outcomes for ourselves and i believe there are those who want this to be true and are searching for ways of making this so.
i also believe there are those who believe things eventually turn to shit and make it happen as a result.
we are all right...........and are determined to prove it.
the conflict arises when someone is bent on saying that thier own take on things is the only way. i realise this isn`t true because we all get different results from our efforts.
so whether you believe that material things manifest by thought or whether you believe we are doomed to a mundane existance at the whim of the rich...........you are right.

life is a trance.

the successful are in a trance. the poor are in a trance. the middle class are in a trance. these trances are made up of a combination of things, from pre-concieved ideas to social pressures to on-going natural attitude to so many other factors that it`s impossible to guage.

the fact remains that the trance that the successfull are in is available to anyone.

i`ll repeat that last statement now.

the fact remains that the trance that the successful are in is available to anyone.

unless you refuse to try.

why would a person refuse to try?

pre-concieved ideas about how things are..............beliefs about themselves and about the world. moral and ethical cluster-fucks that impede a person`s ability to change thier state consistantly enough to do things differently.

fear.

so when you stop believing in all the irrational fear you can easily change your state of mind by deciding to do it.........

and then be patient enough to let it happen. let the opportunities come. let the solutions be provided. become part of the picture you dare to see as a result of the shift in your focus.

this becomes your new trance.

an animal.


we have the capability now to visualise and manifest our desires in any way we wish. there is something inherently anthropomorphic about how some cars look........this one in particular looks about ready to chase gazelles.
now i`m a hungry cat...........
