Your Life is NOW!

Most of times in life, we tend to always look ahead instead of looking to the now. And our lives sort of revolve around what we will do in the near or long future instead of what we're doing now.
We're always planning on the ways of the presently unreachable, when I graduate I'll do this, when I buy a car I'll do that, when I get a job I will.., when I marry I will..., when I retire I will...
And when we look back to all the thoughts and projects we had when that was still unreachable we notice that we ended up not doing the same we said we would... The point is that most of the times we make excuses to not do or be something now, because we need something else to get there...
We don't need anything else than the NOW! This is it! This is your life, it's happening right NOW! This is what you will remember from your life, not all the things you planned you would do once you would get this and that, here and there... NOW is what your life is and will be...
When I look at pictures of myself I see my life happening so I decided that my life will be happening every time all the time and I will enjoy the life I live every day, every moment, all the moments...
My life is happening NOW, this is my last chance to live this moment, certainly more moments will come but not like this one, not the same as this moment - my NOW!

Abraham vs. Don Juan

For about 4 years now that I've been constantly searching for, let's say, an upgrade to my self. I stumbled upon several concepts of life that I believe are basically talking about the same. The most amazing thing is that they are all coming from different parts of the world and different timelines, but are consensus in the meaning... Every time I pick them up again, there's a different meaning I find to it... Today I was reading about the Second Ring of Power of Carlos Castaneda's 'Teachings of Don Juan', there's a concept that interests me a lot, which is Unbending Intent. Carlos says: "Anything is possible if one wants it with unbending intent and you don't let your thoughts interfere."
Abraham Hicks talks about the same on the Law of Deliberate Creation, where we can deliberately create our lives and actions based on intent. Abraham even describes a true story of a grandmother that after her grandchild is run over by a car, the old lady was able to lift up the car with her bare hands, because her intent to release her grandchild was stronger than any laws of physics she'd ever learnt - this phenomenon is called a quantum leap in the law of deliberate creation, what Carlos calls unbending intent.
As I read on the 'Teachings of Don Juan' Carlos describes a state of the dreamers where you should gaze at objects to stop your internal dialogue, thus to stop the world, when you are able to stop the world then your dream begins.
The concept is the same in Abraham Hick's where you have the Law of Allowing, you can only deliberately create what you desire first by attracting it unto thee and then by allowing it to manifest, and usually, you are in a state of allowing when you connect to the source, through meditation, through the 'stop of the internal dialogue' or 'gazing'... These practices are widely observed as we further move towards the East and let's say that the same concept could be applied to prayers, if we would concentrate our minds fully to the prayer instead of our own thoughts...
The dream Carlos mentions basically should mean something ahead of what you perceive as 'what is'... Here's a quote from Abraham that illustrates the same:
'You're always getting a perfect vibrational match to what you predominantly give your attention to. But you've got to make the best of it. You've got to vibrate slightly different from where you are if you are going to improve where you are. You can't keep taking score of where your business is or your relationship is, or your body is without continuing to create it as it is. To make improvement, you've got to reach for a different thought.'

It's Never Too Late...

These are some memmorable quotes from Trainspotting, actually the first lines and the last. Great radical movie that teaches that it's never too late for a change (but the sooner the better - hehehe)!!!

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?

Now I've justified this to myself in all sorts of ways. It wasn't a big deal, just a minor betrayal. Or we'd outgrown each other, you know, that sort of thing. But let's face it, I ripped them off - my so called mates. But Begbie, I couldn't give a shit about him. And Sick Boy, well he'd done the same to me, if he'd only thought of it first. And Spud, well okay, I felt sorry for Spud - he never hurt anybody. So why did I do it? I could offer a million answers - all false. The truth is that I'm a bad person. But, that's gonna change - I'm going to change. This is the last of that sort of thing. Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already. I'm gonna be just like you. The job, the family, the fucking big television. The washing machine, the car, the compact disc and electric tin opener, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, mortgage, starter home, leisure wear, luggage, three piece suite, DIY, game shows, junk food, children, walks in the park, nine to five, good at golf, washing the car, choice of sweaters, family Christmas, indexed pension, tax exemption, clearing gutters, getting by, looking ahead, the day you die.

Up Close And Personal

Decided to share a poem from my native country. It's my favourite and what I like to believe the anthem to my life - "Cantico Negro" by Jose Regio, I translated it in the best of my ability trying to capture its original sense, if anyone find a better translation, please let me know and I'll adjust it accordingly. Hope you enjoy!!!

Black Chant
by Jose Regio
(1901-1969)

“Come this way” – they say with tender eyes
Stretching out their arms to me, assured
That it would be good if I would listen
When they say – “come this way!”
I gaze them with indifferent eyes,
(There is, in my eyes, tires and ironies)
And I cross my arms,
And never go that way…
This is my glory:
Create inhumanity!
Not follow anyone.
- As I live with the same unwillingness
As when I tear my mother’s womb
No, I won’t go that way, I will only go
Where my own steps will lead me…
If to what I seek you have no response to
Why do you repeat: “come this way!”?

I prefer slipping in muddy alleys,
Whirling in the winds,
Like torn clothes, drag my bloody feet
Than going that way…
If I came to this world, was
Just to ravish virgin forests,
And draw my own feet in unexplored sand!
Anything else I do is worth nothing.

How can you be the ones
To give me impulses, tools and courage
To defeat my own obstacles?
In your veins, flows old blood of great grand parents
And you love what is easy!
I love the far away and the mirage,
I love the abyss, the torrents, the deserts…

Go! You have streets,
You have gardens, and flowerbeds,
You have nations, and ceilings,
You have rules, and treaties, and philosophers, and wise men…
I have my own madness!
I lift it up, like a burning torch, in the dark night,
And feel foam, and blood, and chants in my lips…
God and Devil guide me, no one else!
All of you had a father, all of you had a mother;
But I, that never begin nor end,
Was born of the love between God and Devil.

Ohh! Don’t give me sympathetic intentions,
Don’t ask me for definitions!
Don’t tell me: “come this way”!
My life is an unleashed hurricane,
It’s a wave that has just raised up
It’s an extra atom that ignited…
I don’t know which way I’ll go
I don’t know where I’ll go
I know I won’t go that way!

End of The World in 2012?

I wrote this message below as an e-mail to Ali (the brightest footballer I know) last January (a year ago) and I think it is relevant to post it and hopefully hear interesting insights...
These are my personal views, I started believing that heaven and hell is more in which state of mind you live in the physical life and beyond...
The e-mail follows:

"Who cares about the end of the world? We will all die in our physical bodies, who cares who dies first, or last, or at the same time?

“(On the Mayans) Thousands of years ago they managed to calculate the length of the lunar moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds out. The Mayan calendar predicts that the Earth will end on December 21, 2012. Given that they were pretty close to the mark with the lunar cycle, it's likely they've got the end of the world right as well.”

Ohhh please, they got mistaken by 34 seconds, who gets mistaken by 1 can get mistaken by thousands (that’s what my IT teacher taught me)… And there are some documents written in Sanscrit (the oldest language in the world – older than the Mayans) that the year 2000 will have a brand new revelation that will change the course of history… The Indigo era. I believe it started happening… With what is called now new age thinking with pieces such as "The Secret", "What The Bleep Do We Know?", "Messages in Water", discoveries in Quantum Physics and such, all have the same message (message that if we look closely we can find in the religious books such as the Quran, the Torah and the Bible, etc), we can create/re-create our experience in the world as we wish… Which eventually means the end of laws, rules, institutions, bending what we would call reality, etc… And people will start living in bliss, as they want it…
According to the law of attraction you can’t create evil to others, just to yourself (just like the 3 rules that genie gives to Alladin in order for him to choose his wishes: 1.) you can't kill someone; 2.) you can't make someone fall in love; 3.) you can't bring people back from the dead. (Interesting how love is qualitively similar in importance as life and death! hehe))…
Although if you look at the book by Hitler “Mein Kaumpf”, he mentions exactly what he did posterior years after writing the book – just like visualization and scripting techniques… But then again, he was just a leader - the engine - and if each one of us choose our own destinies, it just means that A.) the Germans had the same idea of Hitler (who was not even PURE ‘Arian’ German, he was Austrian). B.) the Jews, consciently or unconsciently feared it would be a possibility, maybe bringing it on themselves (sorry!)…
So basically, yes it is possible that 2012 will be the end of the world as we know it… In the religious scripts the end of the world mentions basically the good will go to heaven and the bad will go to hell. With the new era, let's say that the enlightened ones by the new revelation will actually live in heaven because they will know how to create what they want from life, and the ones that will still like to be victimized and pursued and pitied and so on and so forth will all be together in hell, which basically it will be the lives that they chose…
Indigo is basically the hope for the future of the world… After all that happened in the last century, which was needed of course, we reached a point of violence, extremism and intolerance, the new generation will be born to change the course of history, they believe that Indigo children started to be born already from the 70’s, I believe I’m one and you might be one as well, now most children are indigo… Usually you recognize an indigo child by some characteristics like they learn fast, they get bored easily, they look straight into the eyes of people, they are more interested on how things work and in honesty…etc…
The revelation is a change in the way people think and how important our thoughts are to rule our lives… Instead of living our lives in auto-pilot, we will start taking control of the direction of our own lives…

I have already a group of enlightened friends that have started having success in their life created as they want it… When will you join? Soon I’ll have my piece of paradise and you’re welcome to join us…"

;-p

That's basically the purpose of this blog... Gather the enlightened ones and together educate and be educated into the new era!

Watch in Awe!

Meet Dr. Masaru Emoto

Dr. Masaru Emoto became interested in the molecular structure of water and what affects it.
Water is the most receptive of the four elements. Dr. Emoto thought perhaps it would respond to nonphysical events. So he set up a series of studies, applied mental stimuli and photographed it with a dark field microscope.
The posted picture is the result of water after a blessing or a prayer.
It's really fascinating when you keep in mind that 70% of our bodies are water. Makes you wonder, doesn't it? If thoughts can do that to water, imagine what our thoughts can do to US…

How far down the rabbit whole are you willing to go?

Extract from "What the bleep do we know?"

Scientific experiments have shown that if we take a person and hook their brains up to certain PET scans or computer technology and ask them to look at a certain object and they watch, certain areas of the brain light up.And then they've asked them to close their eyes and now imagine that same object. And when they imagine that same object it produced the same areas of the brain to light up as if they were actually visually looking at it.So it caused scientists to back up and ask this question.So who sees then? Does the brain see? Or do the eyes see?And what is reality? Is reality what we're seeing with our brain or is reality what we're seeing with our eyes?And the truth is that the brain does not know the difference between what it sees in its environment and what it remembers because the same specific neural nets are then firing. So then it asks the question: What is reality?

I believe in the new generation!

Indigo Children extract from Wikipedia:

According to New Age belief, Indigo children are highly sensitive with a clear sense of self-definition and a strong feeling that they need to make a significant difference in the world. They are strong-willed, independent thinkers who prefer to be self-guided rather than directed by others. They are empathic and can easily detect or are in tune with the thoughts of others, and are naturally drawn to matters concerning mysteries, spirituality, the paranormal and the occult, while opposing unquestioned authority and contradictory to convention. They tend to think outside the box, and are often referred to as "system busters." Indigos allegedly possess wisdom and level of awareness "beyond their years." They are also said to have a strong feeling of entitlement, or "deserving to be here."
