Yesterday I came across a thread on a forum I frequent where someone was claiming that he was enlightened now. How did he know this? Because his friend had just died, and he felt nothing. And his lack of emotion was proof of his enlightenment. Sadly this is an all too common myth perpetuated on […]
About 3.5 years ago, I had an experience that would forever change the way I see the world.
I haven’t mentioned this too frequently on this blog, but it’s time to talk about it today.
This experience, in May of 2014, showed me something I can only call Silence. As the Tao Te Ching says, though:
The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real.
And so any name is insufficient.
But seeing this totally changed many things for me.
It may seem unrelated to the law of attraction, but I have come to see that it is actually what perfects the law of attraction.
As such, I’d like to lead you on a basic exploration of this Silence. Be patient with me, and I will show you why this is so important.
The way this world is set up is as a reflection of what is within. When I say reflection, I mean that quite literally. There is, in truth, no reality to the outside world, only to the pictures you hold in your mind. This is why it makes absolutely no sense to allow your emotions […]
Where do you think happiness comes from? Do you think it comes from the achievement of your desire? No, it doesn’t. Happiness comes from the true nature that you already are. When you achieve some desire, you experience happiness, because for that moment, you drop the yearning, the longing, the seeking, and you can just […]
I've had the intention lately of learning how to manifest big desires. I don't just mean what I've previously called next level goals, which are goals that are relatively within your realm of belief, but I mean truly big goals that would seem nearly impossible to you now.
And as always happens, as I explore this new, uncharted territory for me, the Universe has shown me much more about how it all fits together.
And so what I've seen is that there are two general ways to use the law of attraction: what we could call the path of ego, and the path of spirit.
The path of ego is forceful. It advocates pushing to get ahead. Those who follow this path experience intense pressure to succeed.
The path of spirit, on the other hand, follows the Taoist principle of wu-wei (non-doing). Those on this path believe that nothing truly good or useful comes from using force to get ahead.
Which path you choose is your choice, but in this post, I'll describe both paths, and why I believe the path of spirit is far better in the long-run.
