Spiritual evolution, cultural evolution

An evolutionary world view, transcendence in service of cultural evolution, appreciating evolution at the pace it’s happening.

Last night, I listed to this interview with Carter Phipps of EnlightenNext magazine, a part of the Beyond Awakening Series.  It served as medicine I was needing to step beyond personal challenges into a much bigger picture: my personal spiritual growth as a piece of the greater cultural evolution.  The perspective re-inspires me to move forward in my highest service.  I share this with the intention that others are also inspired to greater alignment.

Seeds, harvest, life, relationships

“Live your life for a new reason.  Understand that its purpose has nothing to do with what you get out of it, and everything to do with what you put into it.  This is also true of relationships.”  – Neale Donald Walsh, in Friendship with God, p. 174

“Judge not each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

What Do You Ask of Life?

What questions are present in your mind right now?  Take a moment and listen.  Are these the questions that often show up as you go through your day?

The questions you are asking yourself create your focus.  If you ask yourself, “What if I fail at this?” you will imagine scenarios of failure.  When you ask yourself, “How can I most enjoy doing this?” or “How can my work most benefit my community?” your focus will be on enjoyment or benefit.

Notice the questions you are asking yourself.  If you don’t like where they bring your focus, change them!  You’re the one living with your inner mindset, and you’re the one who can change it.

The questions you ask yourself are the questions you ask of life.  Listen to your questions and consider what you would most like to ask.  You will discover increased understanding of yourself and your life path.

Every Moment Is a Blank Page.

When you live every moment as a blank page, your life is imbued with a quiet power – the freedom to be exactly who you want to be, and to continually recreate yourself as “even better” than the best you’ve already been.

When every moment is a blank page, you have the freedom to make of each moment what you will your experience to be.

Habitually, we’ve chosen each new moment by looking at the past.  We’ve chosen by looking at what we already know.  This is why we often repeat the same patterns.  This is not a fallacy; this is wise.  We know we can count on what we know.

If you feel limited, turn to a blank page. In every moment, you can choose to take with you what works for you, and let go of what doesn’t.  “Letting go” may be a physical letting go, or it may be as simple as releasing a certain way of thinking about your situation.

If you feel stuck, stop for a moment.  Take a breath.  Turn to a blank page in your mind.  Ask yourself, “If on this page I found the best me I could be, the me I would most like to be, the highest expression of myself, what would that me look like?” Listen to your heart; feel for your highest truth.  Let yourself be who you find on that page. If you grant yourself that freedom, you are always free to live up to your highest potential.

On Judgement, Guilt and Punishment

Food for thought:

“In highly evolved societies, no members of those societies are ever judged and found guilty of anything.  They are simply observed to have done something, and the outcome of their actions, the impact of them, is made clear to them.  Then they are allowed to decide what, if anything, they wish to do with regard to that.  And others in the society are likewise allowed to decide what, if anything, they wish to do to and for themselves with regard to that.  They do nothing to another.  The idea of punishment is simply not something that occurs to them, because the concept of punishment itself is incomprehensible to them.”

– Neale Donald Walsch, in Communion with God, p. 151

Be First, Let Doing Follow

What do you most desire?  Happiness?  Peace?  Freedom?  If your first answer is something you’d like to do or have – for example, build a successful career, have lots of money, or raise a family – ask yourself what what doing or having this would give you.  After a few cycles of this question, you will probably end up with something you’d like to be – such as be happy, be at peace, or be free.

What if you could just be happy, peaceful or free, without having to go through all the doing or acquiring first?  Try this idea on for the extent of this article.  If it aligns with your inner truth, great!  If not, let it go and move on.

Consider that the world may really be altered by rose-colored glasses – or whatever filter you choose to see it through.  Consider that if you focus your attention on happiness, peace, freedom, or whatever you’d like to experience, you will most likely experience more of that.

Have you ever been in a foul mood and had a horrible experience, then later when feeling good, been in nearly the same situation and enjoyed it?  There’s no “truth” you’re ignoring when you enjoy yourself, nor are you wrong when you have a foul time.  You’re simply having the experience (foulness or enjoyment) that you were already being.

Here’s an experiment to try.  If you would like to be happy, notice happiness all day long.  Be aware of when you feel happy.  Notice other people who are happy.  Appreciate the happiness in you and around you.  Write all the happiness you experience and see in a journal.  Let happiness be your guide: when choosing, ask yourself, “Which feels happier?”

You can do this for any state of being you choose as your goal.  If you were choosing peace, you could:

  • Notice when you feel peace in yourself
  • Notice others who are experiencing peace
  • Appreciate peace in you and around you
  • Remind yourself of the many experiences you have of peace (for example, with a journal)
  • When choosing, let the feeling of peace be your guide: “What feels peaceful?”

Have fun with this.  Play with it, and enjoy being!
