“Think about what feels good to you, what makes you happy and about what you truly want to do in the bigger picture of your life…
Define what your priorities are with regards to personal health and well-being, spiritual life and personal growth, relationships, business and projects, life task work, creative expression, and managing your personal environment. Then take that list of priorities and prioritize what is most important to you at this present time in your life. Begin to eliminate what you really don’t need…
It’s a great month to get rid of excess. Excess worry, thoughts, perceived responsibilities that are not really yours, regrets, expectations and anything that keeps you from being very present. Consolidating yourself means practicing presence. You obviously cannot do anything about the past or the future in any practical way, so stop worrying about it, and take action in the present. Practicing being present is probably the best use of your time and energy this month and it will go a long way to eliminate the feeling of burden, non-specific anxiety and worry.
The present is the place of power. When we say someone has great presence it is because they are showing up fully consolidated with all of their energy available in the present moment. They are not thinking about the past or worried about the future.”
“Sadly, most people don’t understand how the world works because they are so consumed with other things. We live in a society that is absolutely addicted to entertainment… [T]he average American spends more than 10 hours a day plugged in to some form of media. If we are not watching television, we are listening to the radio, going to movies, playing video games, messing with our smartphones or spending endless hours on the Internet. And more than 90 percent of the “programming” that we are fed through these devices is produced by just 6 absolutely gigantic media corporations.
And who controls those gigantic media corporations? The elite do. And have you noticed how “the mainstream media” loves to divide us?
Today, Americans are more divided than ever it seems. Our news broadcasts endlessly fixate on “black vs. white,” “male vs. female,” “liberal vs. conservative,” “rich vs. poor,” etc, etc.
Americans are extremely angry and frustrated at this point, but most of our anger and frustration is directed at one another. How can we ever hope to come up with any solutions for our nation if we spend so much time hating our fellow citizens?
But this is just how the elite like it. They love to play divide and conquer. If we were united, we would be far more difficult to manipulate.” ~Michael Snyder
“We, you might say, are the very first generation – certainly mine is – to come along and say, ‘Well, yeah, whatever. I don’t really classify myself based on my genetic heritage, nor do I evaluate myself based on my economic situation; therefore, that immediately releases me from lots of systems.’
[U]nderstand that you’re not a subject of any monarch, that’s a fiction. You’re also not a citizen… If you are a free human sovereign being, you are not a citizen – that’s a fiction.
And if you are enmeshed only in the theater, it feels like you’re trapped. And so the path of the mystic, and this is a sacred and wonderful thing, is to see that that is not true, that you are not trapped in the theater; only your mind is trapped here. Once you’ve understood that process, and once you begin that unfoldment…
The unfoldment is a simple choice – it’s the choice to take yourself seriously. There can be no unknown areas in the unfoldment, no blocked emotions, no weak triggers. You have to go deep.
…it attaches you to your true position of consciousness, which is not here. And to get there, you need to purify your mind, which is the whole endeavor of the mystic… to purify the mind to an extent where it locates the higher self and begins to withdraw it’s consent to it’s own bondage.
And if we want to change this, all we have to do is stop agreeing to it. There’s a purpose for animal nature, which is what we’re enmeshed in at the moment, and one of the purposes of it is to learn high conduct, to learn that morality and ethics and principles and discipline is the bedrock, the foundation, of spiritual growth. So, the point of it isn’t to get out and escape – it’s to use this place as the very instrument itself for transformation.”
