Transcending the darkness

There is a lot of talk about good and evil, and once you understand how evil operates you can understand what is really true, from a divine perspective.

Evil’s agenda is to create as much suffering as possible, to create fear and to lead people into darkness by pulling over their eyes a veil of deception and confusion, making them afraid and angry and thus influencing them do the kind of heartless things to each other that they would never normally do if they were in their correct mind.

Evil purposefully misleads, by directing people away from the divine truth towards a false, darker truth which it creates in their minds, and skilfully persuades them to believe as true. Essentially it is misinformation on a grand scale, and it leads to actions that bare the hallmark of darkness, such as the intentional infliction of pain (physical or psychological) upon another human beings and animals. If it creates pain, it has its roots in darkness.

Evil’s main tactic of deception is to state the truth as being totally opposite to what is divinely true, because it intends to lead people as far away as possible from the light, into darkness. Not only this, but it desires that people stay in their minds, that they dwell in the realm of thoughts, of mental beliefs, opinions and judgements. This is its main tactic for keeping people away from their heart, where divine truth shines brightly and is impossible to ignore.

So let’s consider how much information is being put out there that ‘bad things are going to happen’. That war is on the horizon, that darkness is increasing, that artificial intelligence is going to threaten the human race, that hatred is increasing. All the negative things that we are led to believe are on the horizon create fear in us. And guess what…. Fear is a place far far away from peace, far away from divine truth, far away from the place of love where we are meant to dwell.

Fear is exactly where evil wants people to be. This is its prime agenda, because fear IS darkness, and evil loves the darkness, and wants everyone to dwell there. Evil hates the light with a wrathful vengeance. It hates goodness and love, and this hatred is it’s motivating force.

So all that matters is that you do not move in the direction of fear, and that you move in the completely opposite direction; towards peace, towards light and joy, towards happiness, trust and security, towards love and compassion.

If you become aware that anything – no matter what it is (and this especially includes thoughts, ideas and beliefs propagated by the media industry) – is leading towards fear, stress, anxiety, worry, insecurity and so on, realise that you are moving away from the divine truth, from trust, providence, from the true peace of your heart and correct your trajectory instantly.

In truth, It is easy to defy fear. You simply do the opposite of what it tells

you to do, then it is impossible for fear to master you. If fear says “hurry up” then slow down. If it says “run away and avoid” then stand still and face whatever is there to be faced. For in truth, you are infinitely bigger than anything that the mind tells you can threaten you, for as you conceive of the threats, they are all merely thoughts in your head.

Where is the threat in this moment? It is always in the future. We are projecting it into the future, and then dwelling within this expectation of future suffering, thus manufacturing suffering for ourselves in this moment, through fearing. If we did not do this, virtually all of our fear and suffering would vanish.

Full realisation of this truth makes you immune to fear, because you see that conceptual fear is nothing but a lie, a total falsehood that you have been persuaded to subscribe to by your mind, by your beliefs and by the society we live in, via the all pervading news and media industry.

This is actually fantastic news, because once you see that all the reasons your mind is giving you to be anxious and worried are imaginary expectations of future suffering – either big things or small things – you see that in this moment you are safe. And this is the truth, I can assure you. Your mind is generating all the insecurity.

This is why it is so important to watch what your mind is telling you, especially when there is anxiety and fear present. What is the subtle belief or expectation about what is going to happen? What is stopping you relaxing in this moment? What is stopping you from slowing down and being more careful and present in your actions? It will be just a fearful thought. A thought of being short of time perhaps. A thought about all the things you have to do. A thought about something which you don’t want to happen. Just thoughts.

Stop focusing on thoughts, come out of the television screen of your mind and focus on your breathing instead. Let your body relax, and become more deeply aware of how it feels in this moment. Be aware of any tensions in certain places, and consciously relax those parts so that you can enjoy a sense of ease and comfort in your body.

Thoughts will usually try to pull your attention away from feeling calm and grounded in your body, so the secret is to ignore every little one of them and keep coming back to your breathing and the feeling in your muscles. This is what brings us out of the clouds, and back down to earth. For in truth, we cannot experience joy in the clouds. We cannot experience bliss, peace and freedom. These are felt in our heart. And therefore, our heart is where we need to be, where our attention needs to be so that we can experience what we are designed to experience.

We need to feel our heart more and more, so that we can remember who we truly are, and what is truly real. And it is not some complicated spiritual practice. We literally just need to bring our attention there, to feel it beating, breathe into it and let it expand. As our heart expands, like any muscle it grows stronger, and we all really need to have a strong heart. A weak heart will be afraid of things that it need not be afraid of. A weak heart will have no courage, no deep capacity for the powerful fire of divine light that should be burning bright within it. A weak heart dwells in the shadows, when it could be radiating out the beautiful light of love and joy, like a beacon of hope.

This is what we all need to do; to develop the strength of our heart. We do not need to be afraid, we do not need to be a slave to the fearful thoughts that enter our mind, because we are infinitely bigger than them. They are nothing in comparison to us. They only get their power from us when we choose to give them our attention. If we don’t, they vanish. It is that simple.

Fear cannot continue to exist if we deny all fearful thoughts the attention they crave. In truth, it is the simplest thing in the world. It is just a case of not putting your attention in one direction (the thinking mind) and instead turning your attention in another direction (your heart).

This is why we need to practice this daily; so that it becomes easy and automatic. We have simply gotten into a bad habit of giving our attention to all thoughts; a bit like opening the fridge and always reaching for the unhealthy foods which we know won’t make us feel good, instead of the really nourishing foods which are also sitting there on the shelves. We just need to learn to see the subtle choices we are making in our mind; the choice to to engage with certain types of thoughts, to get carried along by trains of thoughts and thus forget our body, forget our heart, forget how good it feels to be relaxed and open, rather than tense and stressed.

Awareness of these subtle choices is what opens the door to freedom, and enables us to move away from fear, insecurity and darkness and into the beautiful light of divine truth, which is the reality of transcendent Love, the highest truth, where we belong. This is like a fish returning to the ocean after being trapped in a small rock-pool, slowly starving and dying . It is totally inevitable that freedom will come to you, and it is important to trust and have no fear, because as the tide comes in to rescue you, you must choose to swim away from the familiar rock pool and experience life in the ocean.

Immune to fear

A person who allows fear to take

root in their mind & heart needs

to be saved from it. Fear is like a

toxic virus that poisons the

human heart. The antidote is to

become strong in faith; to have

full trust in something greater,

something more powerful;

something Divine. Having total

trust creates total security &

instills unshakeable peace. It

makes the heart immune to fear.

This is what saves a person from

the darkness, which is fear.

Why do people get sick?

Where does disease and sickness come from? It doesn’t just suddenly appear in the body of a perfectly healthy person. We may think we are reasonable healthy, and be very surprised when illness arises, but very few people realise how deeply healthy and well the human body and mind can become, and how average their own levels of health are in comparison to this.

When your body is glowing, when there is a hum of positive energy circulating through your veins, when your mind is no longer pulled into negative thinking and not obsessed with purely material pursuits, then you are experiencing true health, which is a feeling of fullness and wholeness inside, a powerful sense of vitality, joy and enthusiasm for life, a sense of connection in our heart to the greater truth of life, and a feeling of peace and fearlessness also.

However, we get used to living with mental negativity, with fear, with stress, with irritability, tiredness and emotional turbulence, and we accept that this is just how life is in a human body. But this is not true. These are manifestations of dysfunction. We believe we have “good health” simply because we are free of disease, but as long as the above-mentioned dysfunctions are present, there is still healing that needs to occur if we are to approach true health, which encompasses our body, our emotions and our mind.

If we desire to approach true wellness and inner-health (and this is possible no matter what our age) then we need to address our tendencies towards negativity, pessimism, criticism, anger, stress and fear. If such tendencies are left unchecked then they will inevitably manifest as sickness. The reason for this is that disharmony is being established within the cells of our body, as a result of what is occurring in our mind. When there is harmony in our mind, our body radiates with positive energy. When there is negativity in our mind, is is impossible for radiant health to become established in our body, because there is a contamination coming from our thoughts.

Our mind is like the source of the water, which then flows down through the rest of our being. If it is polluted, then our entire being becomes polluted. This is why it is essential and to address our mental health, which means the purity of our mind. An impure mind, tainted with negativity, fear and judgement, can only lead to sickness and disease.

You may think, “well, sickness is an inevitable destination for every human being as they approach the end of their life”, but you need to re-consider that. Yes, the death of the body is inevitable but sickness and disease are not. Sickness and disease only occur in a body which is not truly well, which is not enriched by a positive and harmonious mental perspective upon life, and the more unwell the body, the sooner illness will manifest.

It is like a dripping tap in a bowl of water. One day the bowl overflows (which represent becoming ill) and we wonder why it has occurred, especially when we consider ourselves to be ‘reasonably’ healthy. As long as that tap of negative thinking is dripping, it is polluting you, it is effecting every cell of your body.

Now of course, food is an extremely vital part of this, and we need to be consuming an abundance of the very best foods for our body (unprocessed fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts & seeds, smoothies, juices, superfoods etc) while eliminating certain ‘toxic’ foods that our body can function perfectly without (e.g. meat, dairy, gluten, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods).

We need to be eating a high percentage of raw foods, and less cooked foods, because raw foods are more life-giving than cooked foods. The more uncooked meals you have, the more you will notice a feeling of vitality in your body, a feeling of enthusiasm, a feeling of lightness and energy. Your mental patterns will become more positive, and you will naturally develop a more positive outlook on life. Eating too much cooked food will leave you feeling sluggish, tired, irritable, unmotivated, uninspired, heavy and generally de-energised.

It is vital we have a sense of energy flowing through our body. This doesn’t mean that we are bouncing around and always being active. It essentially means the absence of tiredness. Tiredness is actually a much bigger problem than most people realise, because it signifies a lack of vitality. Often this comes down to the cells of our body not getting enough hydration and enough oxygen, the two most important things that they need. Instead, they are becoming overburdened with waste from unnatural and acid-forming food products and environmental pollution, and they cannot get rid of the waste because they need good hydration to do this. So essentially what happens is that they start to suffocate in their own waste, starved of oxygen and unable to flush away the toxins.

However, because every cell of our body has an incredibly powerful drive for survival, instead of dying, these cells adapt and mutate. They adapt in a way so that they no longer rely upon oxygen to survive, but instead they rely on the fermentation of sugars, which are provided in abundance via the consumption of grains, bread, cereal products, any starchy foods, fruit, sugar and sweeteners of any variety. To a mutated cell, anything that can ferment will serve as sustenance, and therefore all forms of sugar will be used as food.

And because the western diet is so overabundant with sugar and carbohydrates (which are complex sugars), then the mutated cells literally thrive in the inner environment we provide for them, especially if our lifestyle is lacking a good amount of time spent in nature (which provides oxygenation), a lack of exercise (which encourages the circulation of oxygen via the blood), and a lack of emotional balance and positivity. Consider now your lifestyle and food choices and ask yourself to what degree are you inviting in sickness?

If you experience frequent tiredness or you frequently feel stressed, there is something you must address urgently, because these are the warning signs that there is not equilibrium in your body, and that your cells are not functioning optimally.

We all have the capacity to feel calm, to feel positive, to feel enthusiastic, and these feeling are natural consequences of a healthy mind and body. We should consciously cultivate them by slowing down, being less busy (including in our mind), spending more time in nature, relaxing more often (without the use of alcohol), exercising in nature on a daily basis and taking time to communicate heart-to-heart with the people in our life. We would greatly benefit from reducing the amount of time spent using technology, social-media, and absorbing all the negative information from the ‘bad-news media’, which essentially fills our mind with negativity and conflict.

Nutritionally, we need to be eating less sugar and carbohydrates (which create spikes in our blood sugar and thus in our energy levels) and eating more greens, vegetables and nourishing plant-based proteins (such as spirulina and hemp seeds, two of the most beneficial foods for our body). Eating more raw food than cooked food is also important, as is including vegetable juices in our daily diet. Sprouted seeds (such as the amazing broccoli seed, alfalfa, lentils, sunflowers etc) are an very important addition to our diet, because they boost the vitality that we are putting into our body. Cooked foods may contain minerals and protein, but they have virtually zero vitality, and the enzymes cannot survive the cooking process. This is why plenty of raw food is vital, especially raw food with a water content, like vegetables and juicy fruits.

You will be able to feel this if you do a 2-day experiment without cooked meals. Replace them with fruit salads, chunky green salads with nuts & avocado, vegetable juices and avocado smoothies. I can guarantee you that you will feel a significant difference in your body and energy levels. You will even notice it in your mind and your thought patterns. This is an experiment that could easily change your life and your relationship to what to you perceive as ‘food’.

Food shouldn’t make us tired, irritable, uncomfortable or unwell. Food should nourish us on every level, and help us to feel more balanced, energised and strong. Sadly it is often the opposite, but the good news is that we are in total control of what we put in our body. It is wise to look closely at what you consume, and notice how it makes you feel. Does it overstimulate you and create stress and irritation, does it make you feel tired and lethargic, does it congest you and block up your breathing? There are plenty of foods that people eat every day that are considered ‘healthy’ that do all of these things!

Forget every magazine article, website or advert that has told what is healthy… healthy foods are foods that contribute to a sustained feeling of good health, and not just briefly while they are in your system. Anything that makes you feel good briefly is essentially a drug, not a food. Truly healthy foods build good health, they build a strong immune system and they increase long-term vitality. They should not give you a stomach ache, make you feel irritable, stressed or tired and they should noy congest you in any way. The only way you can know is by observing your body. You have to observe how you feel when you eat certain things. Your body’s response to individual foods is your barometer. This is how you learn what is good for you and what is not.

Of course, there is a vast amount of nutritional wisdom available, but essentially it is simple. Fruits, vegetables and digestible proteins. You can be perfectly healthy (in fact you will be healthier) without grain products of all kind, as they essentially flood the body with sugar and encourage your body to begin relying upon sugar for energy and alertness, rather than oxygen. For example, someone who is studying or working at their computer begins to feel tired, and they automatically reach for a sweet food to make them feel more alert and focused. This is common, but it is a mistake because it is better to get up, get some fresh air and move your body for 5 minutes, to increase oxygenating and circulation. More oxygen is brought into your body, and can be delivered to your cells to increase a sense of awakeness and freshness. All that sugar and carbohydrates will do is stimulate your body into feeling that it needs to move, and make you more restless. Oxygen will bring a sense of calm focus.

Obviously, for some people, carbohydrates in the form of grains and cereal products are a necessary part of their diet, especially if they practice sport, but good quality protein is far more important. And gluten (found in pasta and most bread) is especially toxic for the body, as it is very hard to digest, is well known to create stomach and intestinal problems, and creates congestion all around the body. Dairy products are also well known to cause congestion, due to the indigestibility of animal-produced lactose. Congestion of our breathing passages is an obstacle to proper oxygenation, which is the very most vital component of good health.

I must re-iterate that – as with all foods – some people are more sensitive and some are less sensitive, which is why it is essential to observe your body’s reactions to different foods, so you can know for sure what works for you and what doesn’t.

There is another extremely vital aspect to health and food which is very important to understand. It is the acid / alkaline balance. I won’t go into great detail, because there is an excellent website that gives far more comprehensive information than I could possibly fit into an article, and you can visit it here: http://Alkalize.org

But to give a sufficient outline… We need to be eating a greater percentage of alkaline foods than acidic foods. The reason for this being that alkaline foods create healthier blood, and they create a conducive cellular environment for maximum oxygenation, which means the cells have an abundance of their most essential fuel, oxygen, so they can repair and regenerate more easily. If our diet to is too acidic, the cells do not get sufficient oxygen and the health of our blood is diminished (meaning that it cannot transport as much oxygen around the body).

As well as this, acid-forming foods create acidic waste that needs to be removed from the cellular environment and the blood, and this is why it is vital to drink an abundance of water, so that waste and toxins can be regularly flushed from the body. This is why a primarily acidic diet, coupled with lack of hydration, and compounded by the regular consumption of dry or salty foods, or dehydrating alcohol or coffee, can cause a fundamental problem in our cellular health. If you consider that our entire body is simply a collection of billions of cells, then it is vital that we are nourishing them in the perfect way if we want our body to function correctly, and give us the feeling of wellness that we all enjoy

So to conclude, we must remember that health or sickness are a result of our habits. Healthy habits which you establish earlier on in your life could very well avert the occurrence of disease and sickness, which most people accept as an inevitable part of getting old. But even at an advanced age, the body can repair, heal and strengthen itself if it is given the necessary nourishment and fuel. If you keep nourishing your body and treating it in the right ways, and avoid the things that are not beneficial to your health, you will be amazed at how your body will serve you, and how good you can feel occupying it.

Life is a magnificent gift, and leading a healthy life helps us to really see and appreciate this deeply. As we all know, leading an unhealthy lifestyle or putting up with mediocre health can easily turn our life into a joyless struggle, devoid of energy, enthusiasm and true happiness. But the good news is that the choice is always ours.

Who You Really Are

Imagine that a happy and friendly young child was taken out of the loving family environment that he was used to, and put into an environment full of conflict, full of anger, criticism, bitterness and resentment, a place where only negative emotions were on display.

If he spent a prolonged amount of time in that environment, what do you think would happen to him? I can tell you that one of two things would happen: either he would totally crumble as a human being, and become very depressed and unwell, or he would adapt his personality, his behaviour and his thought process to fit in with his environment, in order to survive and feel as secure as possible within it. He would become a very dysfunctional human being, maladjusting himself automatically to the negative emotional drives and expressions that surround him.

And this is what usually happens when an innocent, good-hearted child (which all children are) is brought up in a highly dysfunctional environment. Something which is innately good, becomes corrupted by negative influences. This applies to you also. You are innately good, without a shadow of doubt, but your environment – i.e. the society you live in – is a corruptive influence to a large degree.

So your most vital job is to distinguish yourself from the corruptions that society (and possibly corrupted parents) has forced upon you. You are the kernel of goodness right at the very core of your being. Goodness characterises your essential nature. So you have to peel away the resentment, peel away the guilt, peel away the self-judgement, peel away the intolerance and hatred, peel away the pessimism and the fearfulness, and rediscover that kernel of goodness, that core of love.

Only that is who you truly are. Everything else, every negative or destructive tendency, every aggressive or pessimistic tendency has been added to you by society, by the people who surrounded you as you grew up. That is not what you are really like, they are imposed attitudes and behaviours, and they are also reactions to a dysfunctional environment. You have to rediscover your heart, the goodness of who you are, your innate innocence.

Ask yourself this important question : “Do I want to actively create more suffering in this world? Am I a cruel and evil person, or do I really just want to be free, peaceful and happy, but feel deeply frustrated and confused about how to operate in this world? Do I feel insecure and uncertain, whereas I just want to feel safe and secure?”.

This is usually the case for pretty much every single human being on the planet, and I am assuming that you are not evil. Very few people are, but many, many people are frustrated, insecure, afraid, confused, bitter and angry. They have a deep desire for peace and happiness, but get easily frustrated by the world and by other people, and find themselves simply venting their emotions into the world, or taking them out upon themselves in the form of self-criticism, self punishment, self-denial, self-hatred.

This is far more common than you think, and it always overflows into every human relationship that a person may have. I am sure you have observed this within yourself at some point. So we have to remember that what we really, truly want is to feel secure, peaceful, happy and loved. Keep reminding yourself of this as often as possible, because these are the true heartfelt desires that originate from the real you, from that kernel of goodness within you.

Every time you get in touch with those true desires, you get in touch with where they come from, which is your heart, which is where your goodness originates. If you keep fuelling the superficial, external version of yourself – which is made up of negative thoughts and emotions like frustration, a sense of victimhood, thoughts of resentment, criticism and anger – you will continue to remain at a distance from who you truly are. You will just perpetuate a theatrical, dramatic version of a person who you believe you are, but who you can never be for very long because it is fabricated and it requires a tremendous amount of energy to be sustained. And most importantly, it offers zero sustenance for your soul, which suffers deeply in the absence of your true goodness,

The more you try and uphold this false version of yourself, the more likely it becomes that sooner or later – whether it is through serious illness, grief, trauma, loss, catastrophe or similar – you will be shaken down to your foundations. The fabricated version of you, which you had built up and dwelled within for so long, is razed to the ground, and you are left with only what is true.

You are left with vulnerability, with a deep need for security, with a deep desire for love, kindness and protection. Nothing else can sustain this primal core of your being. Love and compassion are the fuel for your heart, which is your dwelling place in this human body. You are the innocence, the kindness, the beauty that dwells there. That is what you must rediscover, that is what you must re-identify with, because it is your true identity! Everything else is accumulated, absorbed, taken on from your environment; familial, social and societal.

So truly the best news of all is that wherever you are, that core is always there, available to be accessed. And the truth is, without the existence of that core, the artificial layers could not be built up. But it is time to deconstruct them, so that your frustration can finally disappear, your sense of isolation and suffering can vanish for good.

There is a core of joy, a core of humour and laughter, a core of playfulness and innocence, a core of love and care. Whenever you encounter a characteristic that is far away from these, do not engage yourself with it, do not feed it, focus upon it or dwell upon it. Dismiss it and look for what is beneath it. Where is the insecurity, where is the fear, where is the deep sensitivity and vulnerability that we are trying to protect from being seen or from being hurt?

When you look for this, you will always come back to the innocence of your heart, because that is who you truly are and that is where you truly dwell. You cannot avoid it, unless you want to continue to suffer, which very few people do. Keep reminding yourself of what you truly need, and what you truly desire for your heart to be at peace. This will keep you in touch with who you truly are, irrespective of what is happening in the environment around you. This will keep you in touch with your goodness, which is the essence of your true identity.

Experiencing timelessness

You actually dwell in eternity, but you will not perceive this until you fully let go of all thoughts of time and learn to deeply relax, to slow right down and allow your body to sink into the blissful feeling of this moment.

Hurrying in fact comes from fear; a deep subconscious fear that time is running out. To combat this fear, which operates on a deep level of your mind, you simply need to slow right down. Act as if you have all the time you need to move more peacefully, to act more carefully. Move at the speed of a graceful elephant. You will feel stronger, because you will feel more centred.

Always rushing and hurrying weakens us in a way that it very subtle, but very insidious and destructive. It establishes a root of anxiety in our heart, that simply grows as we perceive that time is always running out. It is not. That is the thinking mind’s perspective. The heart’s perspective is peace and total contentment with this moment, which is timeless. Only the heart can enjoy the peace of timelessness. The mind cannot understand it intellectually. You have to enter it.

We must invite in this peace into our heart, so that we can experience freedom from time, as imposed by our anxious mind. Time is not chasing you. It is not running out either. For just a while, simply stop thinking about time. Forget all future plans, even what you plan to do after reading this. Step out of time. Take a few gentle, deep breaths and relax into this moment, as if it is a very, very comfortable chair.

No hurry and no worry. Just a deep and relaxed enjoyment of this eternal moment. Practice this every day, especially when you notice stress and hurry are trying to take you over. Breathe and slow down. Your mind is trying to rush you to your grave, and unless you intervene it certainly will.

The mind, with its fear of shortage of time, is ruining your appreciation of the deep, timeless magnificence of being alive. The deep peace, the joy. So you must defy its plans, by slowing down when it is telling you to hurry up. Fear will tell you to speed up, to rush, to take less care and it will lead you far away from peace and union with what is really true, which is Love. You defy fear and embrace a higher truth when you become more calm and peaceful, and you slow right down, trusting that things are going to be okay if you do so.

Love is the abundance of time, and Love is what you encounter when you bring calmness and peace into this moment.

Relax. There is no threat

Fear is what keeps us separate from God. If there is fear in our heart, there cannot be peace, and we cannot be aware of the loving realm which is God’s realm. It is the same with anger or grief, both of which have their roots in fear.

The media floods us with messages of fear and insecurity. The news constantly tells us of the next threat looming on the horizon, how the world is becoming a more dangerous and dark place. The vast advertising industry make us feel insecure and inadequate about virtually every part of our self, so that we will buy the products they tell us will make us happier, freer, healthier and more confident about who we are. The film and television industry floods people’s minds with negative and violent stories and images, which desensitise them, muddy their view of reality, and encourage them to think along certain negative pathways.

To a large degree the media is the global tool of distraction that leads people away from peace, away from their heart, away from joy, away from inner security and away from an awareness of God, and it does this primarily through instilling fear and insecurity. But this fear and insecurity is not truly justified, it is not real, because it is being manufactured by the industry. Fear is the product, and people are believing it, buying it and consuming it en masse, and in the process blinding themselves to the beauty of the divine truth, which is the higher truth, the REAL truth, God’s truth.

The higher truth is that you are totally protected, loved and guided by a force which you cannot mentally understand, but which you can become totally familiar with by accessing the peace within your heart. As we become more familiar with the heart’s realm, leaving behind all the mental doubts, fears and insecurities, we realise that we are living in the perpetual embrace of this greater loving intelligence, and that literally no harm can come to us if we fully trust it and stop trying to control and manipulate the outside world, the people we encounter and the events of our life.

It is a lack of trust that leads people to manipulate and control, and take their sense of security into their own hands. The build fences and walls around themselves (psychologically as well as physically), they pursue and accumulate money, thinking that will make them feel truly secure, they pretend to be somebody whom they are not, so that they will have the security of other people’s approval. They consume, consume and consume some more in the desperate attempt to feel secure and nourished, not realising that the deepest security – the security of our heart – cannot come from anything worldly. It can only come from spiritual realisation.

Spiritual realisation comes when we give more attention to our inner self, to our heart, to our innocence, to our need for love, for peace, for laughter and joy. As we give more attention to our heart, we realise that part of us feels vulnerable in this world, and it desperately wants security, it wants protection. This is our inner child, the deeply sensitive and totally innocent core of who we truly are. This is the part of us that is most easily able to communicate with the greater intelligence which many call God.

When we ask, from a place of humility, to feel safe and protected by this greater intelligence, it will bring a deep and lasting peace into our heart that cannot come from any other source. Many people seek this peace through certain drugs, which is totally understandable but unnecessary. And of course a drug is a very poor substitute because it is temporary, and it is chemically induced, as well as having a detrimental effect on the body.

So when we ask, from the humility of our heart, to be embraced by the protective and comforting force of God, we are asking for spiritual security. And this is what we will experience, if we are willing let go of all the thoughts of threat. God requires us to let go of all the imagined threat, and all the imagined darkness, so he can fill our mind and our heart with light. If we are still doubting and clinging on to anxiety or worry, we are literally inviting the shadows of fear into our being.

We must let them go, and put our full trust in the most powerful force in the universe; our spiritual parent whose realm of total peace, light and security we are always able to access, when we simply relax our heart and ignore all the fearful and negative thoughts that want us to believe in them. Let them all go, and realise that without them there is no threat. The threat comes when we start thinking.

When we ignore every single fearful or insecure idea, what are we left with? This present moment. Our body and how we feel. This is why it is very important to let go of the tensions created by anxious thinking, and just relax our body. Enjoy feeling free of pressure and free of stress. It is okay to relax and feel the goodness of being alive. You don’t always have to be doing, doing, doing. You need to experience the peace of being.

As we relax our body, this relaxation gradually reaches our heart, and when our heart relaxes peace floods in. We feel a tremendous sense of relief, and joy bubbles up. We realise that we are the one who has been oppressing and constricting our heart with fearful thoughts and believes, and that we have the freedom to just let them all go. We need not put our attention in the direction of thought. Instead we can focus on the goodness of being alive, we can nourish our body and our heart with goodness; with nature, with exercise, natural food, relaxation and laughter. It is our choice. One way leads to fear and sickness, the other way leads to health, peace and happiness.

And at the core of all of this is trust. We have to trust that we are safe, irrespective of what appears to be going on in the world. This sense of trust must be developed if we are to live in peace, as we are destined to. We develop our feeling of trust simply by returning to it when we would normally engage in fearful thinking. We notice the anxious thoughts trying to pull us into them and make us afraid, and we stop ourselves and say “No, I am not going to venture into the realm of fear. I trust that I am totally protected and secure in the presence of God.” And we relax, knowing that the fearful thoughts are untrue and pose no threat whatsoever.

Relaxing is a very important part of staying in peace, because it is impossible to be afraid while our body is relaxed. The moment we engage with a fearful thought, tension appears in our body and in our heart. Fear and tension go hand in hand. So by coming away from the realm of thinking (which means not trying to manipulate or control your thoughts in any way) and by bringing your attention to your body and allowing it to relax, a sense of ease and harmony is instantly restored. As we give our full attention to our breathing, which connects us to the spiritual part of our being, we are no longer feeding anxious thoughts with our attention.

Because our attention has to be somewhere, and it is usually in our mind, but we can move it onto our breathing, we can move it into our body and we can move it into our heart. This is what we need to practice doing on a daily basis, because it brings us out of the realm of illusion (which is what thoughts are) and into the realm of being, of feeling, of energy, of vitality, of joy; the realm of our heart. This is where we are meant to be, and this is where we receive inspiration, healing and restoration.

Our heart needs to be healed from its past pain, and by allowing in the all-powerful force of Love (which is God) then this can occur. Again, we have to let go of all of our doubts, insecurities and expectations of suffering, and fully trust that God will provide the healing balm and restore us to full strength.

Essentially, there are two realities we can dwell in. The mental reality of fear and darkness, or the heart-based reality of light and peace, which you could also call Love. This is the divine reality, God’s reality. Our choices determine where we will be in any given moment, but it is vital to remember that we are not doing this alone. The loving intelligence of God is the divine presence from where all our strength comes, and it is aware of us constantly. Its powerful gravitational force will pull us back to the total safety and peace of its protective and loving embrace whenever it is called upon.

Seeing the Light

If you want to fully understand life, then consider it like going to watch a film in a cinema which is located in a incredibly beautiful tropical location. You go into the dark movie theatre on a beautiful sunny day to watch the moving images of light upon the screen; you listen to the loud dramatic noises, to get absorbed in the story, and feel the strong emotions it evokes in your body.

But instead of all of this, you could be basking in the glorious warmth of the divine sunshine, beholding the beautiful magnificence of where you are, and feeling the deep joy and delight which fill your heart.

In comparison to this, the illusory drama projected on the cinema screen is very empty and unfulfilling. It may be temporarily exciting, compelling and powerful, but it is unreal. It is merely an external projection of light, when what your soul deeply needs and is truly craving for is to bathe in the original light, which is the light of transcendental consciousness; divine consciousness. Everything else is a distraction from this spiritual experience.

We can tell ourselves that we don’t need this, that we are fine and happy with the pleasures that life offers us, with all the different experiences that we can have, but it is our destiny to awaken to the higher truth, which transcends our material experiences. If we continue to pursue and desire all that the world offers, we are simply leading ourselves in the wrong direction, away from our deepest fulfilment, away from our destiny, from true freedom, from higher truth, from our heart. We remain asleep, entranced, dreaming, thinking we understand what is real. But we do not.

We need to step out of the cinema of our mind, out of our mental stories and mental understandings, and open our eyes to the reality and profound beauty of the spiritual Truth, which is what our heart reveals to us when we turn to look in its direction. It is impossible to understand the divine realm with the dualistic, thinking, conceptual mind, because it transcends that level of consciousness. We have to lift our consciousness upwards to meet the divine.

We need to practice being comfortable with no thoughts to hold onto, no understanding to make us feel safe. We must learn to relax in the presence of a higher light, a higher intelligence which communicates with us in a very unique way, through our heart and through our fully expanded mind. This is why we must let go of thinking to experience that which is higher than thought, infinitely more real than thought, and fulfilling to our soul in a way that thoughts simply cannot be.

I assure you, outside of the cinema of the worldly theatre, a beautiful, glorious and deeply intelligent light is shining brightly, and it is awaiting you. It knows you are in the darkness, it knows you are engrossed in the story playing upon the screen, it knows you have forgotten completely about its presence outside. But it also knows that you are going to remember it, as it becomes obvious to you that the film is drawing to its conclusion.
