We all have an innate desire to live a life of simplicity, love and enlightenment. But how do we reach this in a world that thrives on complexity, egoism and illusions?
Let’s broaden our understanding of the human existence - consciousness, ego, conditioned behavior, the mind and spirituality in general. What is beyond the assumptions, interpretations and definitions of our human-made reality? Is there a space of unlimited possibilities once we release our minds and consciously interact with life? Can there be any purpose for our existence that is more divine than being a vessel for life…for consciousness?Contact us if you have a question for Steve.
Holding on Too Tightly
Holding on too tightly is however a conditioned behavior pattern for human beings. We assume that the answers can be found by grasping tightly to words, definitions and assumptions. We repeatedly anchor ourselves to an idea or belief that has been established by a mind projected image of how we want something to be. This could be in areas of science, religion or really anything in our existence. These projected mind images are tightly interwoven with characteristics developed through our evolution.
The mind images are a direct result of our advanced creative intelligence, heightened emotions and responsive conditioned behavior. An unaware person will not be able to feel the dimension of life nor will he or she comprehend the greatness of it. We will experience a beauty in our existence that feels very strange in the beginning. A shift in existence perspectives is necessary to ensure a reconnection with the oneness of life. It is helpful for each of us to be aware and to feel good about letting go. The awareness to and the releasing of our excess human content baggage allows healing to begin.
