The Three Treasures

A part of the Dao Te Ching, Lao Tzu speaks on the topic of the three treasures.

I have found this particular lesson is most useful for people of at least 40 years of life experience.

The first treasure is Love.  Spend you time doing the things you love to do.  If you find yourself spending time doing something you don’t love, then either learn to love it or do something else.

The second treasure is Moderation.  Do what you love doing in moderation.  Too much of anything causes imbalances in your body and mind and leads to catastrophes.

The third treasure is Humility.  This one doesn’t quite translate well.  He doesn’t speak of the type of humility like bowing before a greater power.  This humility is a reminder that as you become successful in life there will be riches, rewards, admiration, and other things happen.  Being humble is keeping focused on doing what you love and not getting lost in the trappings of success.

Remind yourself of these simply truths each day and the reward will be many years of continued happiness and success for you and everyone you can help.

We are time creatures pretending the universe is solid

Throughout the extent of our collective memory we as humans have pondered the big questions…

Who am I?

Why am I here?

Where is here anyway?

Now I don’t claim to have the definitive answers to these questions.  But, I can put together a theory grounded in recent observational discoveries played against ancient understandings to these questions.

First of all I would like to get an agreement with you.  Can we agree the world is round?

I know it sure looks flat out there, but I hope everyone will admit airplane routes would be very different if the world were flat.  In fact, everything from bridge construction to satellite communication systems  would operate very differently if our world was flat and still.  When you start to laugh at these statements please remember Galileo spent the last 15 years of his life under house arrest for openly discussing the controversial proposition that the world was round and orbited the sun.

We are in a time of great transition.  The human race now has access to information that is radically changing our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.  This new information is challenging the status quo, similar to Galileo’s studies.  Like Galileo, the current power structure will fight to maintain its control over our lives with every resource they can gather.  Many efforts will be made to distract us, deceive us, mislead us, threaten us, and coerce us into going back to sleep and ignoring this information.  After all, what good is an abstract concept when I’m trying to put food on the table, right?  Well, this information will turn the field of health care on its head.

The problem the current authorities face is, also similar to the time of Galileo, truth once revealed cannot be put back into the bottle.

So what is this new truth?  Not only is the world NOT flat, it is also NOT solid.

IQ and timing adjustments

I have been contemplating the Shao Lin trick of slowing time.  This is much easier than it sounds.  You see, modern sensors confirm our sensation of the passage of time is caused by the constant conscience comparison of the frequencies around us to the pulse width of our own brains.

If something is vibrating too fast, direct interaction would be like jumping on a moving train so it appears solid to us.  Conversely, we can not directly observe a flower blooming because its timing is too slow for our brain’s pulse width.

Understanding this lead me to the idea that measuring IQ is nothing more than getting a measurement of the speed of our brains.  If this calculation is true, then exercises to increase the clock speed of a person’s brain should show up as an increase in their IQ.  Of course, activities that slow the clock speed (i.e. television) should lower a person’s IQ.

A Hopi Elder Speaks

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh hour, now you must go back and tell the people that his is THE hour, and there are things to consider…

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Where is your water?

It is time to speak your truth, create your community. Be good to each other. Do not look outside yourself for the leader.”

 

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled and said. “This could be a great time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.

 

Know this, the river has its destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. Look around and see who is there with you and celebrate!

 

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

 

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Scarcity vs abundance, its all in your head

 Our society teaches us to think with a “lack mentality” – that there isn’t enough in this world and that we have to compete for everything
• In order to receive you must give, and in order to give you must receive
• To gain more of anything, you need to work against “lack mentality” and give that very thing away that you desire.
 
If you want more love, give more love. If you want more money then you must  find  joy in giving money to others. For it is more blessed to give than to receive. There is a universal law that says what you give out in life will be multiplied by the very nature in which you give it. “Give to other people, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands–more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to other people is the way God will give to you.” The secret of wealth is helping others get what they want. What you want for yourself, want more for others.
 
Abundance Mentality
 
Abundance Mentality is characterized by generosity, and a sense that no matter how much or little you have, there will always be enough resources to go around. The mind is not burdened with concerns about survival, and all a person needs is carried within themselves and the social group and land of which they are an integral part. Material possessions and knowledge are not hoarded, but accepted and shared. There is a sense of connectedness and belonging that guarantees eternal personal security and health.
Scarcity Mentality
 
Scarcity Mentality is characterized by disconnectedness and a greedy focus on the individual. Material possessions and knowledge are gathered and jealously guarded to build personal power, with efforts also made to prevent others from doing the same. The mind is consumed with thoughts of day-to-day survival. Because this paradigm cannot support a person in a sustainable way indefinitely, a sense of helplessness emerges. This leads to a belief that ultimately there is no hope for long term satisfaction of basic needs, and so the individual’s focus shifts away from survival needs and into the realm of sensual gratification. “If tomorrow there is no hope of escaping pain, loss and deprivation, then seize what pleasures today may offer.”
 
“I need more!” + “There’s not enough for me” = Scarcity Mentality
 
“Share with group” + “There’s enough to go around” = Abundance Mentality
 
Scarcity Mentality – Me, mine, my own, more, now, separation, destruction, non-Indigenous.
 
Abundance Mentality – Us, ours, shared, enough, soon, connectedness, creation, Indigenous.
 
Scarcity Mentality is a Western construct, a cultural disease that has infected our Indigenous ideologies and begun to eradicate the Abundance Mentality that is essential for the future survival of all life on this planet.
 
The shift to Scarcity Mentality thinking represents a shift away from the paradigm of relatedness and communal living, towards autonomy and individual gratification. At its core, this is a shift from Indigenousness to the relatively recent construct of non-Indigenousness. Non-Indigenousness is nothing more than separation of self from nature. Everyone on the planet was Indigenous until relatively recently in human history, and if we can’t return to that soon, this Scarcity Mentality is going to eat our planet alive.
 
Abundance Through Unity
 
For centuries systematic giving has been a custom in most cultures and is referred to by various names. It is indeed an indigenousness system by which the community would band together to help those in need. They did not rely on government or outsiders they would take up a collection or take turns helping those who were less fortunate. People are rediscovering this method for creating great abundance.
 
If you are like-minded and would like to find out how you can receive more abundance in your life. Contact me for more information on a program that works through the Law of Abundance.

Wisdom from Science

A human being is part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something apart from the rest…a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ALBERT EINSTEIN
