21st Century Living - Living An Insightful Life

21st Century Living - Living An Insightful Life
I was doing my laundry this morning, IMHO mundane tasks are a great opportunity to open myself to receiving divine wisdom, and came across three nuggets I want to share. They are focused on quantum living.   As far as I can tell,  people aware of these three points are excelling where others might be struggling or losing momentum.

First, a quick definition on quantum living. Science today, in the West, has evolved to the point of understanding that perceptions influence matter.  In The East, they have been aware of this since the beginning of time - plenty of books out there on that. But for Western science, this is a new news. (article)

For the natural people, like me, that are searching their understanding and looking for more harmonious ways of life ... a gigantic step (leap of faith) is assimilating an understanding that thoughts we think create our life: perceptions, emotions that lead to interpreting situations, relationships ....

From my experience, once you have a handle on that understanding (living in that faith), you begin to adjust to it, life takes some wonderful turns ... and some rude awakenings too.

Back to my Sunday morning contemplation while doing the laundry .....

#1 You can only give to others, what you have about yourself

This point is wisdom because, as you live it, you must imbibe it within you, which in turns cultivates a more insightful way to be - that naturally improves living in harmony with all living creatures.

The most clearly I can see this wisdom is in love. The more I love myself, the more love I have to give others. The Beatles song had it right.

- the patience you have with others (home, work, relationships) is the degree of patience you have with yourself

- the beauty you see in others, is apparent to the degree of the beauty you see in your self - your own life.

This wisdom is only apparent by my conscious effort of applying it.  It's not just something I can think about and understand. I must apply it moment by moment. In terms of self development, personal growth .... whatever term best describes it to you ... this kinda inner work is what brings me an improved, tangible, quality in how I feel and think.

#2 The situations in your life are a result of your habits (thinking, emotions)

In my previous post I included a video by the author of The Science Of Changing Your Mind. He has some great research in his book. Thoughts are powerful because they do create your reality. Back in the 70's my mother brought home the Seth books which opened that door to me. There are several ways to begin to understanding the power of your thoughts. One is mentally and his video/book is an excellent resource for that. Another is by expanding your understanding of your emotions. I think Abraham Hicks is a good one for that venue, see her daily quote here. Third method is more of a body, mind, spirit approach and a study group has accomplished tremendous results for me. There two study courses on the left panel of this blog that I use and recommend.

In order to expand your perceptions and free your self from the bondage of bad habits, you must acquire increasing degrees diligence and self love.

"Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no helpful end in view." ~ George Matthew Adams

#3 What you "know" is how you live, see, hear

Unless one has found a great teacher or made some deep inroads into their spiritual awareness, for the most part, one spends their life building definitions to expand what they know.  For example, public education teaches us, not how to do critical thinking, but how to assimilate logical interpretations and memorize facts and figures.

For the majority of people today, the quagmire, that is invisible to them individually and collectively, is their thinking tendencies.

"Here is the most significant thing that we want to say to you. It is not important to us what you believe because what you believe is yours to believe. It IS important to us, what we know to be. We have discovered that by knowing what we know, our life is one of joy, and you've discovered that by knowing what you know, your life is one of misery. We just want to explain to you that there are choices." ~ Abraham Hicks video

Life is not a predetermined road map.  We are the only one of us that can be flexible and spontaneous. Living in an openness, so as opportunities present themselves, we respond, not out of habitual complacency, but with a zest for living where we exercise inner courage, in the present moment, to live harmoniously.
