A bright future, free of darkness

The media in all its forms has a huge influence upon how we view the world, how our mind operates, how it thinks and how it foresees the future. It is incredibly powerful. So much so that it can totally blind us to the true beauty of living, the fantastic potential within our own heart, and the infinite creative possibilities that we all share as we shape our future on this planet, which is exactly what we are doing with our collective consciousness.

There is a force of goodness that flows through each human heart. It is creative, loving, optimistic, joyful and innocent. This force is also mirrored within the beautiful natural world in which we dwell. However, we allow this powerful and beautiful force to be overshadowed by the fears which are created in our mind (and consequently, in our heart) by the influence of the media. Of course, every other human being involved in our life is also influencing us to a greater or lesser degree, and this is why we need to develop a sense of inner strength.

Inner strength does not mean coldness, harshness or ruthlessness; quite the opposite. It’s about the strength of your heart, and your ability to allow it to remain open, tolerant, compassionate and caring. But also, your ability to remain focused on being practical and pragmatic in your task of making this world a brighter place, a more caring and forgiving place. This does take a great deal of strength, because there is so much information pulling us in the other direction, the direction of judgement, criticism, hostility, fear, doubt and darkness.

But the truth is, even though our own thoughts create a lot of this inner negativity, there is something much closer to your heart that eliminates and dissolves all fear, all negativity, all doubt, all grief, anger, hostility and darkness. If we would just pay more attention to that, and less attention to the media, to the divisive thoughts it creates in our mind, we would see the beautiful potential for our life laid out before us. If we don’t see it, it is because we are looking at the shadows, the negative visions placed in our mind by society and by the media machine, which literally ‘dis-informs’ us whilst simultaneously persuading us that it is showing us “how things are”.

Let me tell you how things really are. You have a powerful and infinitely creative light in your heart, that comes from a divine source. Its power is greater than anything you can comprehend. It supersedes this material realm which we think is so real, so that it can literally transform any aspect of it, by shining its light upon it. This light brings harmony and consciousness wherever it shines. Nothing is greater than this light, and it goes without saying that darkness can have literally zero influence upon it, because darkness cannot approach light without being illuminated, and thus transformed.

And this is the situation we have. Indeed, there are forces of darkness operating through our civilisation, through society, through our governmental and financial organisations, and through the media which appears nearly every where we look, even carried around in our pockets through our smartphones. We think of a lot of it it as ‘entertainment’ or ‘news’, but the truth is that it is distraction. Some of it is benign distraction, which just takes our mind off our own lives for a short while (which is not helpful by the way), yet a lot of it is malignant distraction which will literally lead our mind into realms of fear, anxiety, division, judgment, anger, criticism, and hostility. Quite literally, it leads us away from the beautiful light that each one of us has shining in our own heart, and it takes into the shadowy mental realms of thought, fear, doubt, insecurity and darkness.

Many people could not imagine a life without such distraction and disinformation, but I can assure you that after a short period of weaning, your mind will become more spacious. It will calm down and your body will respond by feeling less stressed, more relaxed, more present and open to whatever it is you have to focus upon in each moment. It’s true that without distraction, you will become more aware of your own thoughts, your own inner commentaries that are always influencing how you feel, but which were previously doing this quietly in the background.

It is vitally important to become aware of those commentaries, because just like a news report tells you what is allegedly ‘happening in the world’ (which in fact is a small, carefully chosen selection of the worst or strangest things that are happening) your inner commentary is doing exactly the same thing to you. It is thinking, and thus providing images and information about what is happening in your life, how you stand with others, what is likely to happen in the future, what kind of a person you are, and how guilty or happy you should be feeling based upon your actions.

Do you want all of this to be happening subconsciously? because you can be sure that it is indeed happening. But if we keep distracting ourselves we will not notice it, and these thoughts just slip under the radar and have their influence upon us, and we continue to be at the mercy of them. Our emotions are totally influenced by such thoughts. Our stress levels, our sense of harmony or disharmony, our openness to others, our sense of contentment, peace, positivity.

Our mind is creating all the darkness that we experience in our life (and that which we project into the future also) not just because of the thoughts it believes, but also because of what it gives its attention to. Our consciousness is affected and influenced by everything it looks at, listens to etc., so if you give your attention to any negative information, you will absorb its energy, guaranteed. It will then affect your thoughts and your feelings, unless you are highly vigilant and disciplined. This is why choosing where to put your attention is the highest practice of intelligence, because our awareness is like a river that flows through every part of us. Pollute that river with any form of disharmony, negativity, conflict, fear etc and that polluted water must flow through you. It leaves a residue, and it can takes some time to free ourselves from that residual inner disharmony and discomfort.

So the wisest approach is to be very careful with what you give your attention to. Do you actually need to watch horror films, films with violence, conflict, hatred, bitterness, darkness and division? Do you actually need to watch the news, and hear about the latest feud between politicians, the latest horrific act by terrorists? Of course, we like to know ‘what is happening’, but as I said before, this is not truly what is happening, and it leaves a residue of darkness within you. Is it worth it? Wouldn’t you rather be filled with greater hope and greater inspiration? Wouldn’t you rather feel positive and motivated to share what you have to share with the world, the intelligence and beauty of your heart?

We have to choose, because in this instance it is very difficult to ‘have our cake and eat it’, so-to-speak. If you want to feel positive about yourself and about life, you cannot continue to absorb negative information. This is why I always recommend to people that they spend more time in nature instead, whatever the weather. The time you would spend reading the news or browsing social media, go for a walk in nature instead, even if you have to drive to a park. It is always worth it.

Rather than continually consume information, as we have been conditioned to do, we need to remember our creativity, our ability to share what is in our heart in our favourite way. We are creative creatures, but society has turned us into consumers who are always hungry for mental information, hungry for food. If you would just spend the next 10 minutes after reading this article sitting quietly (ideally in nature or where you can see some nature), and just relax all the muscles of your body while breathing gently, a sense of gratitude would enter your heart.

We are so busy worrying about ‘what is next’, that we have forgotten how to fully appreciate what is here. You have a home, you have food, you have warmth, and hopefully you have some friends or family who care about you. Bombs are not dropping around you, you are not going to have to scour rubbish bins for your next meal, you are not going to have to sleep on a cold, hard pavement. Could you just stop your hunger for the next thing, and relax and appreciate what you have?

Most importantly, you have life, you have a body. Of course, I understand fully that life in a body is not pleasant when you are sick or in pain. Or living in stress and fear either. This is why we have to take responsibility for these things. We can blame anyone, any group of people, any set of circumstances for how we feel, how much we are suffering, but that simply guarantees that we cannot change it. We must look at what we can change to improve our situation, rather than looking at blaming others.

This is the very purpose of this article; to help you to see how we bring darkness and suffering into our own lives through our choices. If we continued to choose unhealthy junk foods, we will get sick. If we continue to choose negative information, negative thought patterns, a negative outlook on the world, our heart will be poisoned by fear, anger and darkness.

I can assure you that no matter how convinced you are of the picture of future darkness and suffering being pedalled by the ‘bad news media’, the film industry, the advertising industry, and now also the music industry, it is not true. They may want you to believe it is true, so that through your fear you create a reality that is dark and devoid of passion, energy, vitality and power, but there are reasons for that. They are projecting this future into your mind, so that your heart loses hope and you end up simply consuming your way to your grave, and in the process totally missing the boat of happiness, of freedom, of celebration, of joy. In the process, ignoring all the people around you who are in need of help, in need of company, a listening ear or a kind word, and instead dwelling upon your own inadequacy, your own sense of insecurity and your need for self preservation.

There is a force that is working through humanity (and you may have already seen this working through your own life) which wants to heal, which wants to restore, which wants to forgive and build bridges. This is the force that we want flowing through us. It has no fear for itself, because it knows that it is shaping the future, as we all are with our choices and with the energy of optimism and hope which we choose to strengthen, believe in and act from.

If we allow ourselves to be persuaded that the future is dark, we will only want to turn away from it, and this means a spiralling path away from the light, away from hope and faith and love, down into the darkness of fear. This is not somewhere we can go without choosing to. If we don’t choose positive influences, if we don’t choose good health, if we don’t choose compassion and active concern for others, we will inevitable stagnate in our selfish world of consumption, insecurity, fear, anger, division and distraction, thus completely missing the boat of healing, joy, forgiveness, love, total peace and security.

Are there organisations that want to keep us away from that, that want to lead us into darkness? It doesn’t matter. All that matters is that we choose consciously which direction we want to go in, and act accordingly. We each need to focus 100% upon strengthening our own heart, so that we can be a force of goodness, compassion and healing in a suffering world, and help usher in a brighter future by first choosing it in our own mind.

Without this first vital step of replacing a dark outlook with an illuminated one, we will eventually find ourselves in need of salvation from it. It is the human mind that must be saved from its contemplation of darkness, and this occurs simply by turning completely away from it and looking towards that which is always awaiting our attention, which desperately needs our attention. Our heart, and the powerful love that shines within it.

We see its beauty reflected in the natural world, its light reflected by the glorious sunshine that pours down upon the Earth. This is a world enriched by light, and as we learn to dwell in our heart, we will find that it knows no darkness and can create no darkness, for it is a force of pure divine light. When our awareness is re-established here, where it belongs, we will live free of darkness, free of division, fear and suffering, completely at one with Love. The luminous realm of Love is our destination and therefore to reach it we need to focus our full attention upon it. Thus is the journey made.

Goodness flows from harmony

There is a vast force which surrounds you and flows through you, just like the huge ocean surrounds and flows through every tiny fish that dwells within it.

This vast force is deeply intelligent; in fact it is intelligence, but not only that. It is totally benevolent and infinitely creative. Its power is vast and immeasurable, yet at the same time unconditionally loving, nurturing and deeply protective of that which it has brought into being, which is you.

We are designed to be able to perceive and communicate with this force, to rely upon it for all that is deeply essential in a human life, and when we do, we function in total harmony with the entirety of the Universe. We feel like a conscious biological cog in an exquisite and glorious machine, and it fulfils our deepest spiritual and emotional needs as we surrender to our purpose as a instrument of consciousness, of evolution, of Love and expansion.

It feels powerful and it feels beautiful. It feels ecstatic and joyful. Our heart resonates like a bell, the cells of our body vibrate with the energy of the light which flows through us. We are in total alignment with our purpose, with our role in this great performance of consciousness which we call life.

And staying in a state of harmony is our most vital task. In fact, if we enter disharmony – such as fear, stress, anger and so on – we should do our best not to act, speak or do anything until we have restored a sense of harmony within, until we feel harmonious once again.

All good things flow from harmony, and all bad things flow from dis-harmony. This is why restoring harmony is absolutely crucial, because then we can fully be a force for good in this universe. Then we can deeply experience our true relationship with the greater divine harmony of the universe, instead of just thinking about it.

We have to feel, and by feeling we learn where there is dis-harmony within us. We don’t always want to do this, because becoming conscious of how we feel isn’t always a pleasant experience, depending on what’s going on emotionally, but it is the only way to restore harmony. If the dis-harmony is subconscious, if we are doing our best to be unaware of how we feel, it will simply remain there, influencing us without us realising it, keeping us a prisoner of negativity.

We need to consciously choose to be motivated by a positive and harmonious state, and this means we must first allow this state to be present in our body and our heart. The simplest way for this to occur is for you to relax. Relax the muscles of your body, and then see if you can allow your heart to relax also, because it is often held in tension without us knowing it. Let go of the anxiety and fear that gets built up in your body as tension, simply by relaxing all your muscles, including your facial muscles.

Tension cannot be present if there is relaxation, and this means that fear cannot be present either, because fear manifests as bodily tension. If your body is relaxed, it is a physical statement of security and safety. We only relax when we feel safe, therefore it is impossible to be afraid and relaxed at the same time. This is why relaxing our body is such a powerful antidote to psychological fear. It’s like saying to your mind “I don’t care what you tell me, what pictures you show me, I am not going to be pulled into fear. I am going to stay in peace, no matter what.”

But with so much negative information bombarding us from every angle, we constantly feel under threat from something, even though it is nearly all psychological threat. The result is subtle tension everywhere in our body, but especially in the shoulders, the face, the stomach and the heart.

But when we relax our body, tension vanishes, to be replaced by a sense of ease, harmony and warmth. This is how we are supposed to feel, and this is how every human being wants to feel, whether they realise it or not. We have just forgotten that there is a realm of feeling, because we have gotten so tangled up in thinking.

Feeling is the language of the body. It is very grounding, whereas thinking is very abstract and ethereal. What we feel is so much deeper than thought, and also brings a much more tangible and powerful energy into our surroundings and into the world in general. We may think we are influencing the world with our thoughts, but our physical energy field contributes something so much more powerful, so much more real, something with so much more depth than thought. And no matter how advanced, sophisticated or accurate we think our thoughts are, if there is no physical and energetic harmony flowing through our body, we are really going in the wrong direction. We are overlooking the most vital piece of the jigsaw.

So in every moment that you are aware of yourself, be aware if harmony is present within you. How do you feel inside? If you find that stress, hurry, tension, worry, anxiety or any turbulent emotions have gotten a hold of your body, of how you feel, then simply take a few deep breaths and relax. Relax your shoulders first, then your face, then your hands, then your stomach. If you can allow the relaxation to reach your heart, even better. But just let go of the tension, of the control, and feel at ease. Let the poison of anxiety be transformed into the peace of relaxation.

Accept the forgiveness

It is vital to understand this… that God is Love, and God’s loving consciousness permeates absolutely everything, including your own mind and heart. Nothing is hidden from it.

But if your heart is closed or afraid, bitter or resentful, angry or wounded, you will not be able to feel the Love that should be flowing through you. And so we are on a collective journey of healing our heart, so that we can restore our connection to our divine parent, our source, our creator. That connection brings total security, peace, inner-rest, joy and freedom of the heart. All suffering and fear vanish.

And so it is of great importance that we allow our heart to heal, and that we actively engage in the process, so our suffering and darkness can finally come to an end.

The most vital step in this process is forgiveness, because we are our own greatest punisher by far. We judge ourselves, and then we punish ourselves – often subconsciously. We think we should be a certain way, perform at a certain standard, achieve certain things, be a good enough person and then we will be worthy of goodness of Love.

But this is back-to-front. You see, unconditional Love is the reality of life, and once we accept this love exactly as we are, simply by forgiving ourselves and ceasing to punish ourselves, our heart softens. We feel the heavy burden of expectation lift off our shoulders, and we feel lighter, freer and happier. This is what makes us act, speak and think in harmony with goodness, with Love and kindness.

If we are feeling the pressure of our own expectations, high standards, judgements and criticisms, we will have no happiness to share with others. You do not need to be perfect, you just need to relax your heart from the anxiety of fear and punishment, and let it soften so it can receive the Love of God. This is available to you right now, no matter what you may have done. Even if you were very unkind to someone 5 minutes ago, forgive yourself. You are suffering also. In fact, the only reason we are unkind to others is because we in pain, or afraid, or stressed or anxious.

Forgive yourself, because you need release from the persecution, from the pressures which are piled upon your shoulders and your heart. You need to remember the innocent, carefree child that still dwells within you, who needs play, laughter and joy in their life. For this to occur, you must forgive yourself for everything, and resolve not to stray too far from your heart in the future. And if you do, analyse what happened, why you strayed into anger, or fear, and become more conscious of the things that take you away from peace, from happiness, from Love and compassion.

This is a path we are all on. Sometimes, we have to have strayed so far, and been so unkind to fully realise the true mercy and forgiveness of God’s unconditional Love. We think “okay, I can never be forgiven for doing that” but we are instantly forgiven, because God is not a punisher. God is pure Love. Yet it is we who continue to punish ourselves. To regret, to feel guilty, to beat ourselves up for being such a ‘bad’ person. Forgive yourself. End the self-punishment immediately, and let your heart soften, relax and receive the unconditional Love of God, which always surrounds you, and is always knocking on your heart. It is simply always there. You just have to open the door to it.

You are loved totally, and forgiven for everything. Now it is time to be kind to yourself, to stop punishing yourself, and let yourself be happy. You have been given a great gift, which is beautiful beyond mental comprehension. It is the radiant, healing, nourishing and warming Love which your heart longs for deeply. This is what sets your heart free from its imprisonment by fear and guilt. Receive the healing gift of forgiveness and Love into your heart now. Be thankful for it, treasure your freedom from all past judgements and self-persecution, and let the innocent child in your heart enjoy being alive, enjoy what life offers. More than anything, parents love to see their children happy…

Be honest, be transparent, be genuine

Be honest and transparent in every little things you do. Be pure and clear, like water, and spread a pure, positive caring and benevolent energy wherever you are.

Only transparency will flourish in the years to come on this planet. Our future peaceful civilianisation must be full of trust if it is to function well. In fact, the future is being built on trust as we interact right now.

With my words, I either express the force of ego (which is a manipulative entity by its very nature) or I express love, with no filters and no pretence. I just present to you my heart, and what arises from it.

We must do the same with others, if we are to remember the purity of who we are. We must look for the goodness and decency in other people’s hearts – the core of innocence which exists in everyone – and we must communicate with that part, from the same part of ourselves; from our innocence, untainted by the muddiness of the sophisticated ego. Untainted by suspicious, mistrustful or judgemental thoughts.

Because that is not innocence. That is the fallen state of human consciousness; divided, hostile, at war with itself. This is the great human malady.

Innocence is when you do not look to the darkness; you look to the light. You choose the light. Your mind does not judge, it does not criticise or condemn, it does not punish. It seeks to understand what has gone wrong, so that it can play a part in healing it. This occurs through the presence of Love and compassion.

Look for the core of goodness in yourself, and others. It is there; perhaps deeply buried or obscured, but it is there. By looking for that innocence which exists in the core of every human heart, you strengthen it with your attention. It expands, it grows, it becomes more prominent. It needs attention, just like a little child needs attention to know that it is loved. Every human heart is crying out for Love.

By seeing the heart, seeing the purity, and seeing the goodness in others; a long forgotten part of them is resurrected. It had not gotten any attention for decades perhaps, but you give it your attention and that person comes back to life. They feel as if they have been truly seen for the first time. They remember the warm kiss of the sun’s rays in their heart. Their innocence, their goodness has been activated by your attention.

This is how we help to heal the hearts of all people. Just by searching, seeking, understanding, and having compassion for the suffering, forgotten soul in front of us. Look at them with compassionate and loving eyes, and the fire in their heart will come back to life.

How Your Mind Becomes Pure

I have said before that “choosing where to put your attention is the highest practice of intelligence” and the reason that this is true is because where you put your attention essentially determines what you experience as your reality.

If your attention is upon negative thoughts, then your consciousness mirrors this. It mirrors division, darkness and conflict. If your attention is upon external conflict and disharmony – as we might witness on the news or on social media – the same thing happens. Our consciousness is tainted by an energy of disharmony, and we feel this throughout our entire being, almost as if we have absorbed the energy of that which we were giving our attention to. This is why it is of great importance what we choose to pay attention to.

Consciousness by its very nature is harmonious. It is like sunlight; it illuminates, it animates, and it transforms. It is the most powerful force in the universe, and it is benevolent, intelligent and deeply creative. This is the force which flows through us, and this is the force that we focus – like a magnifying glass focuses the rays of the sun – when we give our full attention to something.

Yet consciousness is also very subtle and very easily influenced. It is a bit like a mirror, that just reflects whatever passes in front of it. Consciousness takes on the energetic qualities of whatever it becomes conscious of. But it is not meant to be conscious of conflict, fear, division and disharmony, because these qualities actually encourage unconsciousness. These qualities makes us want to experience less consciousness, to go to sleep, to become less sensitive, because we are not designed to experience them. They disturb us to a degree.

Our biological and spiritual circuitry is designed for joy, for happiness, for laughter, for greater consciousness and presence. We become enlivened, inspired and spiritually activated when more spiritual light is present in our mind and our heart. This is what consciousness is – spiritual light – and when our consciousness is not muddied or tainted by the impurities offered to us by the world of distraction, the world of division, the world of conflict and hostility, we can actually enjoy its exquisite purity flowing through our mind and through our heart. It is this we must aim for.

Essentially, all we have to do is keep our attention focused on that which is pure and that which is beautiful. This is one significant reason why some spiritual traditions have mantras which repeat the name of God over and over. It is why pure and heartful music is an important aspect of spirituality, of worship of praise in many traditions. It is one of the main reasons why the name of Jesus is uttered so freely in the Christian tradition, because it brings people’s attention to something pure, something sacred, something divine, radiant and luminous.

This is the antidote to the modern problem we all face, of allowing our consciousness to become tainted and muddied by the things of the world. We have to become disciplined with it once more, and keep our attention on that which is pure, that which has a sacred and divine element. It does not have to be Christ of course, but this is a very powerful option.

There is a source of light within our own mind that runs pure and clear, like crystalline water. If it is not diverted towards the distractions of the world, or the distractions of our own thinking mind, it remains pure. We can instead keep our mind focused upon an idea which we consider to be divine, such as God or Love, and we can even bring our attention to this inner source of light itself.

When we meditate, or simply sit and relax our body and follow our breathing, we can focus our attention in the middle of our forehead, in the area which is sometimes referred to as the “third eye”, in between our eyebrows. This prevents our mind wandering into thought processes, and it opens up our spiritual vision, which means we can actually perceive a sense of spiritual light.

This light, like Love, is pure. It is divine, it is healing, it is restorative and it is of course deeply illuminating. It is focusing upon this light which completes the divine circle, so-to-speak, in that our consciousness is focusing upon its own source. The purity of our own luminous essence is experienced as our reality, which in truth it is, before reality gets tainted by thought energies or external worldly energies.

We need to develop ways to keep our attention on that which is pure and beautiful. Beautiful and inspiring music is very helpful. Spiritual videos, discourses and writings about God, the divine, Love and so on are also deeply valuable. Calling upon the presence of Christ (which I can assure you is very real) is also one of the most powerful ways to keep your awareness in the realm of purity, where it belongs.

In this realm, there is only light. There is no doubt or division. There is only peace, gratitude and joy. There is no fear because we lift our attention away from the realm of thought, where all psychological fear originates, and thus there is no darkness. We keep our attention focused on the supreme goodness, on the light, on the purity of the divine, of God. This is how our mind merges with the divine, through contemplating and seeking out the divine. This is what all the truly wise people of the world have done, because then you will dwell in that luminous and pure realm, which we are all searching for but many have given up on finding. It is within your own mind, prior to thought. It is within your own heart, prior to fear.

We are all capable of perceiving this purity of awareness. We just have to reclaim our attention, and stop putting it in the direction of disharmony, conflict, fear and darkness, not only in our own thoughts, but in the media, in the film and TV industry, in the news. We must become disciplined with our precious attention, and realise that our attention creates our experiential reality. What we focus upon, we will feel and we will experience.

So I invite you to focus upon the pure goodness that exists not only within your own heart, but in the entirety of creation. It is Love, and it is the creative energy of the cosmos. Focus upon its manifestations in this world, and they will lead you back to their source. Through meditation, learn to focus internally upon the light in your mind, which is a bit like an old-fashioned projector in a cinema. Before that powerful light shines through the film reel, there is only light. There is no shadow, there is no drama, there is no complication. It is only when the film reel is put in place (which represents our thoughts, our beliefs etc) that the light creates a play of drama upon the white screen.

So be still, and observe the awareness that exists before you start thinking.
Practice looking for the source of the light within your own mind and you will slowly come to perceive the radiant truth of pure divine consciousness, the One True Reality, the highest and most beautiful truth, the essence of who you are.

This is happening to you also

Recently I have felt an important need to make it clear that I am not just sharing my thoughts and opinions when I write. I only write from personal experience and direct observation of what I clearly see. If I write about God, it is not because I have read about God, or I am sharing what some religious text says about God. I will tell you honestly that over the past 20 years I have been learning to open my heart and my mind to God fully, with nothing held back or hidden.

Every night, after my children have gone to bed, I face God, I stand tall and open myself to God’s power and light, and God communicates with me. I am usually outside in nature, under the stars, which is where I am writing this now.

Opening our mind and heart in this way is such a natural experience for all of us, and there truly is nothing to fear, because God is not the wrathful and judgemental force we have often been taught about. God is so deeply, deeply loving beyond belief, and this is because God is Love. You could forget the word ‘God’ entirely, and develop an understanding of what divine Love truly is.

But to truly understand, we have to open our heart and experience this. We have to see the deeply conditioned fear which exists in our heart, which manifests as tension, and then let that tension fade away so that our heart relaxes. This is how we come closer to God, and allow God’s love to permeate us from the inside, outwards.

It is so important that we do this, because we need a conscious relationship with God, just as a child needs a relationship with their parent. We need to realise how much we are loved, how totally we are protected, how completely we are forgiven, and how thoroughly we are provided for. These things are what bring deep security into our heart, which we all really really need, more than we realise.

So many people feel insecure in today’s world, and it is not surprising given the influence of the media, and all the messages of fear and threat that we absorb on a daily basis. Fear operates in direct opposition to Love. Where love is realised, there can be no fear. But where fear is present, love is totally obscured. We really have to choose which reality we want to exist in, and ultimately we have to choose to either be fully awake (and thus come to know the reality of God’s existence), or we choose to stay in our thoughts and beliefs and opinions, which blind us to the higher divine truth that exists beyond our thinking mind.

So, I just want to finish by saying that as God has guided me over the years, God is guiding you also. You may think life is random, you may think you are in control, or you may think that other people control you. But I assure you that the truth is that God wants you to become aware of the Love that flows from its divine source. If we are deeply asleep, perhaps in a bad dream, then this can sometimes entail us being shaken awake abruptly, as we would do to a child that is crying out in fear in the middle of the night. We would wake them out of their nightmare because we love them.

The divine force of loving intelligence that flows through this universe should also be flowing through us. But we have to decide to allow it to do so. Yes, it is powerful but it is totally loving, and it is this force which makes us truly strong in our heart. If we cower beneath it in fear, we project upon it a sense of threat, that it might perhaps destroy us. But this is just a projection, because the divine force of Love will never, ever destroy us. It might shake us awake, out of our fearful dream, out of our negativity, out of all our cerebral understandings that keep us separate from experiencing the truth directly in our heart. But we should be very glad of this.

As I said, everything that is happening to you is happening for the purpose of awakening you to the presence of Love in the universe. So speak to existence, speak to the universe, or God, and say “I want to experience the Love, I want to experience the truth, I want to let go of my arrogance and intellectual pride. Just show me what is true, just let me experience the depth, the light and the beauty of reality in my heart.” Such a request will not be ignored, i assure you.

You just have to decide if you want consciousness, or if you would prefer to remain in unconsciousness. Unconsciousness has its appeal, which I fully understand. It is like hiding under a warm duvet, hoping that whoever is knocking on your door will go away. But by doing this, you will remain in the dark, and such is the state of the world at the moment that the dark is going to get darker. The only way forward is to stand up tall, and answer the door. The Love which is God is there, knocking and knocking, and it wants to bring you illumination. It wants to free you from your fears, from darkness, from weakness and from insecurity. It would be very wise to open that door, because everything your heart longs for awaits you.

Precious minds

Over an extended period of time, young people are being specifically subjected to a barrage of very powerful yet subtle messages from the all-pervading media industry (television, film, internet, advertising and gaming) about how to think, how to view the world, how to view themselves, how to function in society and how to interact with others.

They are being encouraged to remain on the surface of their self; to dwell in their mind, in their opinions and beliefs, in their endlessly fuelled desires and wants, and in their ideological ideas of who they are and what they stand for.

Depth is not being encouraged, genuine openness, connection and interaction with others is not being encouraged. They are being steered into inhabiting a two-dimensional world that is digital, conceptual and purely cerebral. Their precious attention is being diverted and conditioned by the fast-hitting, instant-fix world of information and entertainment. They are being steered well clear of the depth of life – the peace, inner beauty, quietness and joy – and pulled into a realm of endless stimulation, colours, thoughts, distractions, noise and activity. The futher they venture into this enticing, distracting, and digitally hypnotic realm of information, the more distant they become from their own body, their own being, their own heart. The further away they venture from feeling and understanding what is truly important in life and where the deepest riches are to be found.

Their attention is the commodity being fought over by all the big-money, (and often government sponsored) advertising companies, entertainment companies, technology and games companies. Steer the young people in the right direction, and you can mould them into the desired citizens of the future. You can decide the way they will interact, what they will value in life, and the society they will create together. You create the future of humanity of this planet by influencing the minds of those who will participate and play a formative role within it. This is why young people are being so heavily targeted by these industries, because they are the future.

But there are obviously two forces at play in this world. There is undoubtedly good, and there is undoubtedly evil. Sometimes evil can fool good-hearted people, by encouraging them to take a hostile position against members of their own species – even their own family! – and this is because evil’s speciality is creating division. Its primary focus is to do this and to create suffering in human beings so that evil can continue to exist in humanity. Because once people start healing and coming together, understanding each other and forgiving each other without exception, then evil cannot reside in their hearts, and this is what we all need to do if we wish to be free from its influence.

It’s almost as if evil is a living ‘entity’ that wants to survive and to maintain its existence by the most effective means necessary. Disease is a bit like this. Take cancer as an example. If you have ever seen black mould growing on a damp wall in a dark room of a house, you will have seen that it is an organism that thrives under certain conditions: a lack of light, a lack of warmth, a lack of air-flow. Cancer is an organism that behaves in a very similar way, needing certain ideal conditions (like a deficiency of oxygen for example) to grow and spread. Cancer wants to grow, and it does so if we don’t address its presence, and change the inner environment in which it exists.

Evil is like cancer. It is like a dark mould that wants to create certain conditions so that it can thrive. It wants unconsciousness (i.e. spiritual darkness). It wants inner coldness (a lack of warmth in the heart, a lack of energy and inner vitality). It wants the body to be denied our attention, our consciousness and our love, for then it has a perfect breeding ground for itself; a breeding ground for illness, for darkness, for weakness and disease. Then it can thrive – like a parasite – until it has taken everything it can take from its host.

Like cancer, evil needs a body, and if we don’t create the ideal conditions for goodness, vitality and health to flourish within us, we will fall prey to its influence. We will find ourselves at the mercy of negative emotions and negative thoughts. We will find that our mouth is always ready to engage in negative speech, in criticism, judgements and unkindness. We will notice that our mind is over active with judgement, with criticism, with worries, with fears – for ourselves and for the future. Fear, sadness and anger will slowly become the more predominant forces in our lives, whereas it should be joy, it should be gratitude, it should be compassion that is flowing through our heart and our veins.

Our heart is designed to be strong, active, loving, giving and caring. It is meant to be the most influential force in our life, rather than our thinking mind. But if we find that this is not the case; if we find that we are often at the mercy of our judgemental, fearful and anxious thoughts and that our heart feels week, afraid, angry or grief-stricken, then we must change something immediately.

Because essentially, in any given moment we either play host to goodness (which is Love) or we play host to evil (which is fear). There are no other options, and we are coming to a point in the evolution of our species where each human being has to finally decide which they want to be a permanent vessel for. You can see through the news reports that indeed some people do choose to succumb to evil, and then they do evil things, destructive things and cruel things. Those people were not born evil; they succumbed to it by not developing (or being assisted to develop) the ideal conditions for goodness to flourish in their life and in their heart.

So now is the time to take responsibility for your choices, because there are many, many negative influences in society. They flow through television and computer screens, through magazines and newspapers, through advertising and film. And most significantly, they flow through the collective mind of humanity. Our thoughts do not belong to us; they come from the collective pool of thought which humanity shares, and this pool is currently very polluted. It is polluted by thoughts of greed, selfishness, judgment and hatred. It is polluted by thoughts of fear, regret, guilt and shame. Such flavoured thoughts enter our own mind, and we either energise them with our attention, or we ignore them and dismiss them. We either choose to get involved with the thoughts and use our mind to elaborate them, or we don’t.

We have the freedom to choose, and this is why so many people practice meditation, because it helps us see that entering into thoughts is a choice. We don’t have to go into a thought. We can choose instead to turn our awareness to our body, to relaxation, to our heart, to a feeling of gratitude and peace. And when we do this, the thoughts we attract will change. They change to thoughts of how we can help others, to thoughts of how we can use our creativity to have a positive influence on the world. We begin to think in harmony with love.

The consequences of what we give our attention to are felt throughout our entire being. Occupy your mind with images and stories of conflict, division and hatred (which are promoted by nearly all the media on a daily basis), and you’ll find that you have no peace inside. You will feel conflicted, agitated and divided within yourself. There will be no inner harmony. Your mind will be active with thoughts of who is right and who is wrong, who deserves what, and how unjust the world is. But you need peace inside of you. You need to experience a sense of inner harmony where there is no anger towards any person or group, so that you can appreciate and enjoy being alive, and thus make a positive and constructive contribution to the world. It is essential.

So this is the direction that we all need to be steering ourselves in. We need to significantly reduce our obsession with media and technology, and remember the simplicity of life, of spending more time in nature, of connecting with people face to face, of doing creative things and helping others as much as we can. We really need to develop a sense of inner harmony, that is not disturbed by what we hear or what we read. We need to develop a focused and wise mind, that is understanding and considerate of all peoples’ perspectives, rather than being quick to judge and condemn.

We need to develop our heart so that it is compassionate to all people without exception, understanding their need for peace and security, happiness and love, just as we do, and realise that everybody goes about this pursuit in very different ways. Some seek power to feel secure, others seek money, others seek attention. We all are seeking the same things, just in different ways. Understand this and you will be able to understand and have compassion for all people, even those that choose to succumb to evil influences. When we think more about others, and try to truly understand them and their motivations, we begin to dissolve the inner sense of hostility that is so often projected upon other people and other groups. Compassion and forgiveness arise instead.

We are encouraged by the media and by the consumerism it promotes to think mostly about ourselves; about what we want, what we need, what is our identity, how do we want to portray ourselves to the world? This self-focus makes us blind to the needs of the people who are actually in our life. We are not concerned with them, with whether they are struggling or suffering. And usually, those who are behaving anti-socially are suffering.

But we tell ourselves that it is not our problem. Perhaps we even believe that they are the problem. This is the self-centred and self-righteous way of thinking which is actually totally un-human and un-natural. We are deeply social, compassionate and empathic creatures. We take great joy from easing the burden of others, and it is possibly the most meaningful and fulfilling pursuit we can engage ourselves in. This is when our heart is really active and strong; when we are helping others.

Selfishness is a disease, and one that gives birth to evil. You could call evil ‘extreme selfishness’, because it is absent of any concern for others. Quite the opposite in fact; it despises others and resents its obligation to others. This is what fuels the destructive and hateful behaviour that will inevitable flow from extreme selfishness. And we must remember that if we are living selfishly, then we are dwelling in a place that could easily lead us to the extreme, under the conducive conditions such as stress, fear, and anger, especially if they are prolonged and sustained. This is what the media is encouraging within us when we consume its divisive information every day.

We must be very careful what we give our attention to, what we read, what we watch and what we listen to. If we want peace and if we want to contribute peace to this world, we must foster it within by choosing positive influences; influences that feed our heart, that inspire us and encourage constructive creativity.

An angry person can never make the world more peaceful. They will simply dwell in anger until they finally vanquish it from their heart. This is what we all must do, along with fear and guilt also. Yes, there is great injustice in this world, but anger and punishment do not redress the balance. But compassion and forgiveness are guaranteed to do so.
