Listed within this book are a set of “Natural Principles.” Gleaned from spiritual and metaphysical literature, they provide you with an ethical and vital code by which to live your life. They are derived from the natural forces, the “laws of the inner universe,” that drive everything in existence.
The Natural Principles are not a set of laws or commandments from on high; they are a purified set of behavioral guidelines—primarily mental behavioral guidelines—unadulterated by institutional dogma.
Arachnophobia – symbolic of our fear of disconnection?
After lunch, I headed over to the teaching room for the start of sessions. I picked out a chair from the circle placed around the room and sat down. As I waited for my fellow students to arrive, my thoughts turned to my conversation with Karina. Her remarks on the symbolism of spiders as told by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, was both encouraging and intriguing to me.
I’ve always had a professional fascination with the fear of spiders. In my counseling work, I’m aware that treating arachnophobia requires a different approach from other phobias and irrational fears. The therapeutic technique I use from Energy Psychology methods has its own distinct protocol. Furthermore, when it comes to irrational fears, arachnophobia beats all. Interestingly, it is the most prevalent phobia in the Western world—yet apparent not so within indigenous cultures.
What is it about spiders that puts them top of the scary things list?
Why is this phobia such a significant part of the human condition?
Our Western rational minds cannot figure this out. Our fearful response to spiders far outweighs their inherent threat to our survival. After all, the majority of spiders are quite harmless and their physical presence is hardly an imposing one—unless they gang up of course.
The week before last, despite a mountain of work to do in preparation for the launch of my Mastery Classes in September, I attended a short course at the Schumacher College in Devon presented by the contemporary philosopher and “sacred activist” Charles Eisenstein.
The course was designed to explore the ideas and notions in Eisenstein’s latest book The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible. This is a work that acknowledges this time of social and ecological crisis as being symptomatic of the Western mind’s “Story of the People” breaking down. He suggests that our senses are awakening to a New Story, a narrative that expands and includes the wisdom of all of the Earth’s peoples, one that will underpin a
… new kind of civilization, an Age of Reunion to follow the Age of Separation.
The coming Age of Reunion will reawaken the Western mind to the interconnectedness of the World’s ecosystems and of all life at a deeper spiritual level of existence. It requires us to recognize, honor and include the stories told by our indigenous peoples, and to examine fully our perception of the world through our belief systems. As Eisenstein remarks,
… we can say that the ecological crisis—like all our crises—is a spiritual crisis… encompassing all aspects of our humanity.
Announcing the publication of my new eBook on Amazon Kindle on June 27th. It will be priced at $4.99 on publication – however, when I return from vacation on July 2nd, I shall run a promotional campaign which will include a 5-day period where the eBook will be free. No prizes for guessing where I’ve been on vacation!
The primary aim of this book is to help get you through humanity’s “shift in consciousness.”
The fact that you are reading this suggests that it’s doubtful you haven’t heard about this so-called “Shift,” but whether you’ve heard about it or not, it’s likely you’ll ask yourself, “What’s it got to do with me?”
The Shift is a psychological Mass Event that will eventually affect everyone. It is an evolutionary transition within the collective psyche of the human race. That is, the psychological patterning that we consensually adhere to, on who we Continue reading “How To Be In Divine Love”
Fortunately, for most of us, our desire for life overshadows our desire for death.
In Part One of this Post, we recognized the tragedy of the Germanwings flight that crashed into a French mountainside killing 150 people. Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot responsible for the crash, was undoubtedly suffering from depression. However, I introduced the notion that for someone to consider suicide when depressed, he or she is psychologically escalating and deepening their thoughts to the extent whereby they enter into an “existential crisis.” Furthermore, I’m suggesting that when in this state of mental crisis, the subject can be consumed by a “natural” desire for death.
It is not understood that before life [when your Essence/Higher/Greater Self is deliberating on entering the physical domain] an individual decides to live. … Each person born desires to be born. He dies when that desire no longer operates.
…The desire for life has been much flaunted, yet human psychology has seldom dealt with the quite active desire for death. In its natural form this is not a morbid, frightened, neurotic, or cowardly attempt to escape life, but a definite, positive, “healthy” acceleration of the desire for survival, in which the individual strongly wants to leave physical life as once the child wanted to leave the parents’ home.(Seth, The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, p.24.)
