The site will be back in action after September 1 st. The team is currently working on another project that will be done by that time.
Enjoy Life without Addiction.
Message from Ascended Master Buddha.
The true key to life is to enjoy every moment without being addicted to any person, place, thing, thought or action.
When we are addicted we crave the object of our addiction. This craving is what creates the suffering we see in life. When we crave sleep, for example, we become angry when we can't. When we crave a football game, we become angry when we miss all or part of it. When we crave to be right in a conversation, we explode into anger when we are proven incorrect.
This list can go on and on. Craving produces suffering for you and others around you.
The key here is to enjoy your sleep or your football game or your debate without craving it. When you are detached from it, then you don't create suffering if you happen to not receive the sleep or the football game or the winning of a debate. You have no emotional reaction other than the feeling of certainty that another opportunity will occur.
Once you liberate yourself from craving, your mind, body and soul becomes peaceful and at rest. You will have a more pleasant day that will allow you truly feel more happiness and joy in your life because you won't be frowning and upset.
Would you like more happiness? Allow me to provide practical advise:
When you feel upset or anxious because you are not getting what you want, then realize that you have an addiction. Also realize that addictions are hard to remove without help and that our Creator can remove them for you.
Allow the Creator into your process to remove your addiction by identifying the addiction and asking Creator to remove the addiction from you forever. Thank the creator and then note how you will no longer feel anxious or angry when the former object of addiction is not available.
This is a sign that your addiction has been taken away.
Have faith that this can be done and it shall be done.
Change Your Environment If You Want To Change Your Life.
Message from Ascended Master Yogananda.
Do you feel the desire to change your life but you don't know where to start?
Allow me to provide some practical advice.
Let us say that you desire to change your eating habits but you still frequent the same restaurants and stores to buy what to eat. It is much harder in this example to change because you have not changed your environment.
The advice here in this example is to stop completely going to the same restaurants and stores. Go to a completely different set of restaurants and stores that cater to the new eating habits that you wish to adopt. This change in environment will allow you to easily change.
This may seem like simple advice but changing the environment to change your way of life is often overlooked.
Not changing the environment is like a man who is swimming against the stream. No matter how hard he tries he will have little if any progress. So change the stream to one that will carry you to a life more to your liking.
Be - Not Do
Ascended Master Hilarion
Those who wish to become closer to our Creator decide to embark upon a self improvement that consists of much action.
This is quite understandable. Many on the planet are waking up and wishing to live with a healthy mind, healthy emotions and with a healthy body. All three aspects, when healed, propel you towards the Creator and towards your Divine Purpose here on Earth. Look around you and see how many are changing their diets, changing their exercise, changing the way they react emotionally to events in their environment.
To witness this from the realm of Shambala is truly a delight and a humbling experience. You are awakening as a global consciousness.
For those who are feeling the need for change, the temptation is to want to change all at once and be done with it. The impulse here is to do and do and do. This forcing of change, however, can lead to disillusionment and defeat - not to mention exhaustion from always doing!
So here in the heavenly realms, we suggest that you take it easy and focus upon one doing at a time. For example if you are feeling the impulse to quit caffeine, then just focus on quitting caffeine instead of trying to both quit caffeine and launch a new yoga routine at the same time. Give yourself space to breathe. Master the quitting of the caffeine then move onto mastering the new yoga routine. During the mastering of new habit, just be and enjoy the moment in a relaxed manner.
It is an old saying but it is worth repeating: "Stop and smell the roses."
Face Your Fear or Surrender It.
Throughout the ages I have witnessed countless friends and family who have incarnated on Earth and find their lives stopped and turned into turmoil from fear.
I know that it is hard to shed fear. Fear is like sticky molasses that seems to cover you over time and refuses to wash out. Fear is a thief. It robs you of opportunities and experiences that can change your lives. Fear is the opposite of why we come to Earth.
It does not matter how or why or who was involved in the fear that you now feel. What matters is a practical way to get rid of it.
Do you want to rid yourself of fear right now?
Then let us keep reading!
There really is only two ways to rid yourself of fear. One way can be painful while the other is merciful.
Here's the method that can be painful - Face your fear head on and experience what you fear. One slight example is the fear of cockroaches. Many people scream in fear at the sight of a cockroach. Let us put this in perspective. A single cockroach is a simple being that has the same thing that we have, a soul. Yes we can say that it's soul is really small because it is. Never the less it has a soul that comes from the Creator just as ours does. This tiny little creature is here on Earth for the same reason that we are - to experience life. It's experience in life is obviously very different than ours but it does have its fair share of exploration and experience.
This small creature comes face to face with another being, a human, that is more than 10,000 times bigger. More often than not, this little creature receives a ferocious sound from the human and is instantly pulverized. So ends the exploration!
To face the fear of cockroaches, one can start by not instantly killing it but by observing it for a minute or two. Marvel at its construction and it's material. It really does have a design that is quite sophisticated. Look at it and then really ask yourself, "Is it really that fearful?" If the answer is no then put away the fear, grab a paper towel, capture the animal and let it go outside. If this is not possible, then do with it what you can to make its end as humane as possible.
If you can't let go of the fear of the cockroach then the second method will work. The second method always works because you will ask the Creator to step in and remove the fear. This is called Surrendering. Use the following prayer / method to Surrender your fear of the cockroach or anything else that has you in fear.
Be Your Own Fountain of Happiness.
Message from Jesus Christ.
How many of us have had these types of thoughts?
"If only I were in a relationship with that person would I be happy."
"If only I made more money would I then be happy."
"If only I were not in this job would I be more happy."
"If only I had a new car would I be happy."
"If only I had more time would I be happy."
While it is quite natural to want to improve your lot in life with more comfort and more pleasant companionship, I suggest to you that you can make yourself more happier right now instead of putting it off by waiting for certain situations to occur.
Would you be interested in being more happy right now?
Here is pratical advise for sustaining more happiness right here and right now - just let go of all your expectations right now!
Do you have an expectation that your children will be as neat and tidy as you? Let it go. Children are messy. To hold them to adult rules only makes the holder of the rule unhappy - that would be you.
Do you have an expectation that you will arrive at a certain destination by a certain time? Let it go. You can't control traffic. Having an expectation with elements that are not under your direct control is to invite frustration and stress into your life.
Do you have an expectation that certain people in your life will treat you in a certain way or say certain things to you? Let it go! You can't control what other people say and do. It is not realistic and creates unneeded sadness in your life.
Do you have career expectations tied to your age? Let it go. Holding yourself to fantasies and expectations will make you miserable. You are meant to live here now, not according to some rule you invented when you were twelve.
Let go of all these expectations and you will immediately find yourself in a happy place.
Focus On Beauty and Goodness.
Have you ever met the person that is the glass half empty?
When you have conversation with the half empty person you receive information about what is all wrong in the world.
This person will tell you that the world is headed for calamity, that the world is filled with badness, that the world is filled with evils that are eating us alive!
I say to you that this world has much more Beauty and Goodness than any other thing. This world has much more going for it and humanity has much more to celebrate than these doomsayers will admit.
So why do these merchants of doom and gloom wish to peddle such bleak views and stories. What could this benefit them?
These people are hateful and fearful on the inside and so within as so without. Their observations reflect their inner self.
The great news here is that the opposite is also true - as without so within. What this means is if you start to focus ONLY upon what is good and uplifting in the world, your interior changes as well. And as you internally focus only upon what is Good and Just and Beautiful and Divine then you transform the outside world. This becomes a virtuous circle that sustains itself with help from the energies of the universe and our Creator.
The practical advise for you today is to focus ONLY on what is good and beautiful in your world as a means toward transforming your inner self and feelings and thoughts.
Ego Hijacking of Spirituality.
Message by Ascended Master Padmasambhava.
Ego liberation is the end result of inner work by which you release or Surrender your attachments, aversions and delusions.
A human being, for example, may have a certain attachment to a particular belief. Whenever another being expresses a difference in opinion to that belief, the human being expresses an emotion of anger or hostility or a feeling to defend the belief. These feelings are pointers that will help you to recognize when you are under ego control.
If you have an opinion then you are under ego control. Some may ask, "Why is this so bad? Shouldn't I have opinions?"
I have no opinion as to whether this is bad or good. However ego control creates distortions in understanding the true nature of our environment and what lies beyond.
Ego control is a barrier to Divine Truth. Spirituality is the journey towards Divine Truth. Therefore ego control is a barrier to your Spirituality.
To remove the ego from your path requires the human being to question all assumptions. No assumptions in your world are too sacrosanct for questioning. Every idea that you have about consciousness, what is right and wrong and what is an optimal path for living must be questioned.
The reason for this is simple: the ego is a simple mechanism that likes to trap your higher consciousness with rules. The constant questioning of assumptions is a way for you to weaken the resolve of the ego and to train it to start questioning.
Egos also like to takes control of the Spiritual Path. This can be dangerous because egos make very simplistic rules. As an example, an ego may find it uncomfortable at first to control breathing throughout the day. Since the ego is designed to protect the organism against what it deems unpleasant and to steer the organism towards that which is pleasant, the ego may make a rule that states, "Controlled breathing throughout the day is not needed for the Spiritual Path."
In fact, controlled breathing throughout the day is a key element in the Spiritual Path.
In this example, the ego has hijacked the human being's spirituality with a false rule.
The practical advice for today is to examine all the rules and opinions that you hold regarding your Spiritual Practices and Path. During meditation ask for your Higher Self to point to those rules and beliefs that are a barrier to your Spiritual Path.
Those ideas and beliefs that are brought to mind during meditation are those that can be Surrendered.
