Do you want to be right or happy ? This is a question I ask myself on a daily basis. At any given moment throughout the day we are faced with choices , whether to do this or that.
How do we know what the “Right ” decision is ? Well from a greater perspective of course there is no right or wrong decision, its simply a different path , a different expression , we will all get there , so it doesn’t really matter.
However there is way to shorten the path so to speak , to mitigate the negative types of experiences that we do not want to have in our life , and I have found that choosing to be happy over being right is usually the ticket .
There have many instances that I can think of where I may have actually been right , but after choosing that path , I was not happy , and it did not bring me joy or abundance.
This is yet another practical application to the awakening process, that allows you to move into a more synchronistic experience of what we call physicality.
Most of us want joy , happiness , abundance in our lives , and this is the key to manifesting those things in your daily life. So ask yourself do you wan to be right or happy.
It has been my experience that many times we are our own worst enemy , we get in the way of ourselves. I have come to the conclusion that its a matter of letting go of ego or the mind’s desire to be in control of every situation that is really at the root of this.

One of the main aspects of the awakening process is integration. Integration to me is acknowledging that I am a multi dimensional being with many aspects or parts that make up the whole being , what we might call higher self the over soul and beyond.
The human body is essentially energy patterns that consciousness has created to experience physicality , so in that sense the physical body is a type of thought form .
The Pain Body is also another type of thought form , I first heard the term “Pain Body” used by Eckhart Tolle and I like the way he uses it to explore the idea of how there is an aspect of ourselves, a construct we have crated unconscionably , that stores all the pain we have suffered through out our life both physical and emotional.
From this persepctive we can recognize the pain body as a separate entity with its own agenda , which of course at it’s root, is survival at all costs , that is the agenda of all things in the world of form , they are all seeking energy , to stay alive , because they have no source energy of their own , with out source energy all form dissipates.
As we awaken , we become less identified with form , we become more present , and we understand that “We” Are Source Energy” “We” breath life into “Things” or “Forms ” with our attention .
From this level of awareness we can begin to notice the energies of the pain body as a self created and self maintained thought form , that we feed with our attention , we keep it alive , and only when we drag it into the light of presence can we begin to witness it as separate from our awareness ,from “What We Are” … now … we are becoming aware observers.

Bankers jumping off buildings , and some even committing suicide with a … nail gun ? Revolution in the Ukraine and other hotspots where the populace has nothing left to loose , more polar vortex , the great lakes freezing over as global warming really kicks in.
While these events might seem strange on other planets ,they are only the tip of the iceberg when one examines the recent events and happenings on this planet , and I’m sure most aware observers can agree… the level of novelty circa 2014 is increasing exponentially.
As we shift from one reality to the next , we catch glimpses in the news , both in main stream and alternative , we watch the behavior of our loved ones and those around us, and we can see the signs , that clue us in , that we are at the precipice and some have decided its… Time To Jump !
Right now , as I see it , as we go along on our individual and collective journeys, you have two choices as an aware observer, you can either become completely jaded with no hope, or , you can see the madness for what it is and accept that the human race is fundamentally dysfunctional and has been of thousands of years …are things getting better … hmmm, not sure about that.

Have you heard about this ! Have your heard about the “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge”… well let me tell you my story !
As I chop more wood for the stove , I am in awe at the amount of wood I have gone through in the last 2 months , November and December were the driest coldest months I have ever experienced here in the PNW , and those that have lived here for 50 years would also agree.
For those that don’t know , PNW is the acronym for the Pacific North West , which is usually a temperate climate , and in my little neck of the woods , its technically a temperate rain forest , where normally we get over 80 inches of rain a year , I said normally, although I don’t think that term really applies anymore … to anything !
So we have been freezing up here and we haven’t had any rain to speak of , and I have gone through at least 5 cords of wood in 2 months to keep the house warm and toasty , if you were to pile up 5 cords of wood , it would be one hell of a big pile .
Normally … we would have gone thorough less then half of that , as it would “normally ” be raining with temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s.

TMI … TMI … Too Much Information! Do you suffer from TMI ?
No, I’m not talking about when Bob wants to share his recent bowel movement experience , or when Grandma wants to give you details about her sex life , no we are are talking about another type of TMI challenge here .
We are talking about the barrage of data the human mind is exposed to on a daily basis , the stimuli !
Is there a point where you can overdose on information , can you have Too Much Information ?
I would say yes , you can overdo the whole absorbing information thing and the internet has created an information revolution , we now have a digital representation of human consciousness, that anyone can tap into at any time .
And while it’s great to have the internet as a tool for learning and exploring , it can also become a diversion or worse an obsession , with some people becoming completely addicted to the virtual online world and leaving the so called real world unattended.

The Swastika is the perfect illustration or example of how something can have more than one meaning depending on your definitions. Remember nothing has built in meaning , we give things meaning , things are just … well things , props , that we as consciousness use as we create the dramas , plays known as life.
I would guess that 99% of all humans on this planet would view the symbol , the design , the image of the swastika from a negative persepctive , of course becasue of Nazi Germany and world war II.
However what they don’t know is that the swastika has been around for thousands of years , long before Hitler and the Nazi’s , in fact the reason he chose that symbol was becasue of his fascination with all things esoteric.
There is a huge story behind Hitler , that they didn’t teach you in high school , that goes beyond world domination , in fact it goes beyond this world , beyond our planet … literally.

Cognitive Dissonance is on the rise these days and that is a very good thing , Cognitive Dissonance is a very good thing , it means things be changing , it’s a wake up call, an alarm clock , and you either deal with it , go into denial , or go a bit crazy, sound familiar ?
For those of us who travel the rabbit hole on a regular basis , cognitive dissonance is a welcome friend , in fact , those of us who love expansion and growth , we go looking for CD on a regular basis.
We really enjoy a good hit of ” CD ” from time to time , it means we are shifting , growing , expanding , out of our cocoon , into our fuller greater potential , it forces us to redefine, to reevaluate our beliefs , instead of trying to make reality fit outdated , limiting beliefs.
I find allowing my beliefs to be more malleable , more fluid ,is the ticket , yes we need to have beliefs, otherwise we could not even have experiences , you have to believe something to be true , otherwise universe cannot create the virtual reality experience.
Unfortunately many humans have very rigid belief systems , which is a great way to stifle growth and expansion, which is of course the root to much of the conflict on this planet, people like their beliefs and they don’t want to change them , and of course many of the belief systems on this planet are manufactured to dis empower the populace as opposed to being of service .
