You can't fake the fire
As a Personal Trainer, author and speaker, it took me a while to figure this out, all my life actually, but the fact is you can't put hunger in someone else's belly if they aren't hungry in the first place. Full stop. Period. Just the same, you can't give a person an insight into how life works. You just have to be ready, ready to look at different realities and have some faith... and a useful way of doing that is to start appreciating, being grateful for what you already have right now, because that brings you into the present moment which is the only game in town.
The past is dead, therefor and an illusion and the future is also an illusion' because it hasn't happened yet. You can t touch the past and you can't touch the future...as Syd Banks, theosopher, enlightened speaker and author said ''the past is dead, all that's left are memories which are just thoughts carried through time via thought'.
Without a deep inner hunger to be rich, or create something awesome or to get that job, start that company or whatever it might be, and to do it without the complexity of moralising whether it's the right thing to do or not, its fair to assume you'll never achieve it. Yet because we live in separate realities, my definition and use of riches, for example, of course will be very different to yours. My understanding of how life works, from the inside out, from our thinking and not ever our external circumstances, synergises the wisdom coming from the inside when we quiet down our thinking mind, with our passion for life. This allows us to not only to follow our bliss and make what we want, create what we want, supply what we want and to build something awesome that we want, that also benefits people hugely, but also to live how we want and to have fun living it because you'll know your totally on the right path to make what you make and keep what you make, whilst benefiting others and society with far, far less stress, and.more fun, with a lasting lust and passion for life.
The Three Principles
It may sound simple but how often do we miss the simple and most profound things in life because we believe that everything in life has to be complex? Correspondingly, Once I came across the work of Sydney Banks and the 3 principles I knew I had found the way life works and a deepening understanding of how the 3 principles were behind all life and that the grand illusion of our ego based personal thinking was always preventing us from seeing who we truly are, (the hidden illusion is that we are what we seek) from seeing and becoming that person behind the veil, the veneer of our ego rooted in illusion, insecurity and fear.
Mind Consciousness and Thought
So, what is happening to us? The power of the 3 principles are what's happening. We are creating our reality through the the 3 principles of mind, consciousness and thought. Mind is the Universal intellligence behind all life,, concsiousness is that which allows us to be aware of our experience and thought is that which creates our reality, although thought is not reality it looks to us every bit like reality in our minds and with the gift of free will, we get to choose the life we want. Yet, and yet, beyond the fear, the jealousy, the anger, the illusion..the ego is just our personal thinking that skews, filters and distorts our reality moment to moment. Our personal thinking is is not only subjective, based on our parenting, peers, experiences and cultural reinforcements; it is arbitary, we can think anything we want and have it look true to us, the job of consciuousness, it is also illusory, since we really don't know what is going on out there, we make it up as we go along.
We innocently cling onto our personal thinking like it's the last life boat on the titanic but this couldn't be any further from the truth if we made it all up, which in reality is what we are always doing. Really, our identity is a false sense of who we are which is deeply rooted in the past and also unwittingly fixated on the future which is where we seek a projected liberation from our insecurities (see above)...so we say to ourselves, l'll be alright when I get the girl, the guy, (or get rid of the girl, the guy), the house the money, the friends,, the success etc, and crucially this keeps us out of really enjoying and appreciating what we already have, living in the present moment, right here, right now, which is the only place we can ever be, the one place we can create our rich tomorrows... and this fact never alters.
Once we get an insight, and insight is just fresh new thinking, once we start to see that we are living in a psychological reality and our thinking is what is creating our reality, we begin to live in the here and now, once we realise that our thinking is creating our every day realities,... only then can we move out of the non existent past and the illusory future, and make a gigantic leap into clarity, into the unknown and out of the way we think it all is and into who we truly are: which is Amazing, Awesome, creative, resilient, wise and super talented...In fact when we see how it really is we find ourselves saying 'it cant be that simple, it just can't be'...and that's when we start to lose it again.
There is a good reason Einstein said keep it simple, but not too simple.
We live in a world of thought. If I could help you get to the place within yourself which influences everything you do, every moment, every day, then how soon would you want to start working with me?
