Innate Beings

We all Have a inner knowing of why We are here! I Believe for most, and possibly all, it is Simply to just Experience the wonders of a physical dimension loaded with contrast! However the reason, only You know.

For example observe Children at Their first years of development, they seem to know what they are Doing regardless of what We try to impose on them. Many will argue that statement Believing it is up to the parent to inform and teach the Child what is Best for it in every regards. Now this is going to rustle some feathers. Allow Children to Be Who they wish to Be! Trust Me they know what they came here to Do, and just Like Us when We were Younger, We knew and still know why as well.

I Believe all Humans Desire to Be Good as soon as they arrive Here in this Experience. Freud may Have argued that and so may many Others for that matter. However step back and view how You feel, what Do You really Desire to feel? I will tell You without a doubt You Desire to always feel Good! It is some thing You always Thrive on and bask in when it is happening!

Now lets get back to how Children are prime examples of this. All Children in Their early stages of Life Laugh, Play, and Love! Notice when a Child cries, that once they get it out, they Simply get back to feeling Good again. Now I Am Giving examples of a Child when they are really Young here, before the expectations and imposed Beliefs of parents and adults who wish for the Child to behave and fit in so to speak! Now remember most Parents are Doing this based upon fear to which may Have happened to them in the past, or what some one told them may happen. However Like I stated before, We are all here to Experience, remember adults Have this inner knowing as well, and through Experience and Being imposed upon to Be a certain way they Have disconnected from Their True Self. If You were to reconnect with that True Self again You will fully under stand what I Am writing about here, and I know Your ego, Beliefs will get in the way to argue this and that.

I Am not Perfect, and I know I Am Doing my Best to reconnect to My True Self again. All Given here is a form of opinion, and I know at some level this is resonating True to You some how. This brings Me to the topic of “Right and Wrong” and “Good or Bad”. Who deems these contrasts to Be True? Government, societies, religions, authoritative figures… As far as I Am concerned there is no right and wrong, Good or bad, they are Simply contrasts meant to Be Experienced. I know when People originally got together to discuss laws, they had Good intentions, however now they are completely opposite of what they were originally intended to Be. Instead of Serving the People, they now protect People from People! If We were allowed to Be who We Truly are from the beginning, then man made laws(to which are Abundant and impossible to enforce do to the Nature of the intent) are not required.

Do You remember a moment when You felt Good in what You were Doing, and some one came along and told You otherwise? I know Like most, You felt a state of dis-Ease, and depending on how True You were to Your True Self, You either stopped what it was You Enjoyed, or brushed off what that Other individual told You and continued to Do it any ways. Now I Can tell You this, the feeling of discord You feel when some one intends You to stop or Do some thing else other than what You Like Doing, this is a feeling of disconnection from Your True Self. It is not the Other Persons negative intention making You feel bad, it is You pulling away from Your True Self! Now You know why many teenagers rebel, they Have been pushed to Be who they are not for so long and now they are lashing out(Like the example of a crying Child, they are releasing the pent up energy that is causing them to feel bad).

A Solution to all this is to Be more Selfish. Now I mean that from its True sense of the meaning, not the negative connotation that most Have come to Believe. Trust Me You are the only one who knows You Best, no one else! And no one will ever know You, for You are always changing. So Being Selfish in connecting to Your True Self is Beneficial to You, and for every one around You! Think about that for a moment, if every one was to Be and feel Good, then there is no requirement for laws and fear of others. Now I Am not going to try and convince You to Do what I Have written about in this article. However, here is some of the Best advice I Can Give You, “Stop Pleasing every one else, for unless You are Pleased Truly from knowing thy Self”, it is virtually impossible to make some one else feel Good!

Now Do what makes You feel Good!!!

Enjoy!

Doing by Not Doing


Doing by Not Doing
by Owen Waters 

This week, we'll explore another aspect of Taoist philosophy.
It's an even bigger brain teaser called Wu Wei (pronounced
"Woo-Way"), which is about "doing by not doing." And, strangely
enough, it's the secret to getting things done! 

This philosophy says that, when nothing is done, nothing is
left undone. When I first encountered this stark contradiction
I became seriously worried about my brain cells short-
circuiting and melting. In fact, the more I thought about
it, the more convinced I became that I was starting to smell
smoke coming out of my ears. 

Later, at an older and riper age, I began to see the idea
behind the apparent contradiction. The alternative translation
of "action without effort" instead of "doing by not doing"
helped to clarify the original idea. I came to realize that if,
instead of trying to make something happen by the usual efforts
of planning, willpower and determination, you go within and see
the action accomplished, then something very different happens.
The action doesn't mysteriously become accomplished by magic or
by non-effort, but you experience a state of flow which enables
you to move through the task with ease, grace and incredible
efficiency. 

A leading light in positive psychology today is Hungarian-
American professor Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. (In case
you're wondering, his last name is pronounced,
"Cheek-sent-me-high-ee.") His focus on happiness and creativity
led to the concept of FLOW, which is a state of concentration
or complete absorption in an activity. He points out that
developing a state of flow leads to higher skill development
and the ability to meet higher challenges within a chosen
field. 

The message of the Tao is to develop exactly such a state of
flow and to do it by developing deeper states of inner
awareness. The easiest way to invoke a state of flow,
therefore, is to go within, attune with your inner being and
the intended task, then come out into the world of action and
carry out your intuitive guidance every step of the way until
the task is completed. 

In a state of flow, the action is guided from within and the
doer virtually vanishes into the deed. 

The key to creating the desired state of flow is that, because
your inner being is fully attuned with the universe, you can
then act in a manner which is perfectly aligned with all other
circumstances related to your work. This is how synchronicity
happens and coincidences become commonplace in your life.
People, ideas and materials all come together at the exact
right time and in the right place because flow is an
orchestration of the many, not just the one. 

You can be the main person conducting the work, but the
universe responds to your inner connection and brings to you
everything that you need with effortless coincidence. 

The message of Wu Wei is that there is a time and a place for
everything to come together for effortless achievement. By
intending a goal and connecting with your inner being, you
start the creation of that perfect time and place by attracting
all the resources you need to achieve the goal. Then, by acting
exactly when the energy feels right, you express the flow of
ideas and energy which pour forth from your inner being. 

Achievement becomes effortless, and the realm of being has
become manifest in the world of action. You will have achieved
success by alignment with the inner realm of 'not doing.'
