Change

For Most of Us whether We are Aware of it or not, are afraid of change. Also, most of Us Believe change is difficult. I Can tell You this for certain, no matter what You Do or Do not Do, change is always happening.

Think about that for a moment… Change is always happening! It may Be subtle, however it is definitely happening. One of the main reasons You may not notice is because “habits shadow change”. When We Have a routine, change does seem to Be non-existent, it seems as though We are at a stand still in Our Life.

There are different levels of change, such as subtle, gradual, and drastic. However again, there is always change happening in every moment. For most of Us change is one of Our most dominant fears.

Change when Embraced on any level dissolves the fear(this holds True for any fear). That may seem Easy, and Believe Me at first it is not, however just Like any habit/routine, the more You Do some thing, the Easier it becomes.

Now as You go about Your moments in Life, You Can Be rest Assured whether You know it or not, change is always happening! Your Choices are to Allow or resist it.

Enjoy!

Every Thing Is Borrowed

The other day My GirlFriend Amanda found a passed on Pigeon on Our balcony. It was in a cuddled up position as though it just sat there to calmly pass away. It inspired Me to think, that the Form was there but the Life was gone. I came to the conclusion that all that is in Our Experiences is borrowed. Think of any thing that is ‘not’ borrowed in essence?

This applies to every thing! From the form, to the formless. It is very settling to know that when We are done here with this Experience, every thing We have accumulated stays behind as We Simply move on. It’s funny how majority of Our society is all about owning this and that, but in fact every thing is only borrowed.

You can Now relax at trying to own every thing in Your Experience, it will relieve a lot of unnecessary stress You may have in regards to this mission. When You relinquish to not owning any thing, then no thing can Be ever taken from You, for You are Simply borrowing it. These are Easy words to write and say, but is it Easy to Do. When You make it habitual, it becomes Easy. Just like any thing, once it You get use to Doing it, then it is Easy and Simple.

I remember a line from a song by ‘The Bouncing Souls’ called ‘New Day’. It goes “I say live for today, Cuz everything you have is just borrowed!”. So I know I Am not the only one who knows this 🙂

Assumed Higher Powers

I have under stood this for some time now, I Am choosing to share what I know. There are two sides to ‘Higher Powers’, 1) Invisible Source of Energy 2) People of assumptive importance

Lets start with the first one ‘Invisible Source of Energy’. We all know there are things out there that We can and can not see as energy, take electricity for instance, We all know it exists, but can not physically see it! This goes for a lot of things. But I wish not elaborate on those, for there are too many things to write about here.

Second, ‘People of assumptive importance’. This is simple really. What do some consider “important”? Some one with lots of money? Some one with lots of education? Some one who has many followers?… I agree to the last statement, but only in the context of how it ‘debilitates’ You as a free thinker. What I mean is why do they supposedly have power? Because You “Believe they do!”. Once You stop focusing on what does not empower You, then You realize the importance of who You are truly! I do not mean that in a egotistical context, but more a inward acknowledgment of pure Self. This can be implemented into all aspects of Your existence.

I stopped reading the news papers, watching tv, looking at fear mongering websites… You get the picture. Some will say “Matt, but what You are doing is embracing ignorance!”. I dis-agree with that whole heartedly! I know the problems of the World. I agree, I do not know specifically all the problems of the World, and I agree that one does not require to, in order to under stand  that if We stopped making every problem a personal issue, then the collective issues made from the personal issue will seize to exist entirely! And that is what it is all about, taking full responsibility for all that goes on in Your experience. Guilt is based on this fully. To plead “not-guilty” is to plead “not-responsible”. Guilt is not a bad word, as is a lot of words We assume have negative connotations wrapped around them.

Complexity is a man-made thing, I believe every thing is simple. We tend to label this and label that, classify this and classify that, but when You get down to it all, every thing simply just is as it is. No fancy explanations. How do You think nature thrives as it does, I can tell You with certainty  it is simple and does not have a ego to get in the way of what it does best. Nature is connected to a infinite source, as is every thing else, As Human Beings We have dis-connected Our Selves from nature, and source. It is unfortunate, because I believe nature knows best, look at how no matter what has happened over the many millions of years on this planet, it has still managed to survive with out technology, knowledge, ego, nuclear bombs… I trust nature, it will always know best. Just observe it, and You will see what I mean.

Assuming is one thing I have learned recently, that it does not serve well in any regards. It is always best to ask questions to change that assumption into a fact, and that can be some what dangerous as well for facts are perceived differently from person to person. So use that advice with caution. Assuming is a difficult habit to break, but like all habits if You persist at changing them for the better, it will soon become common place just like the habit You replaced. ‘They’ say it takes “30 days to change a habit”, but I believe with more advanced methods, You can achieve faster results.

So to conclude, if You focus Your energy on those You assume are powerful, then You are correct in thinking they are powerful! But only to You. To assume they are powerful to others, is false in so many ways as explained above. Focus on what serves You well, remembering not to harm any one and any thing else in the process!
