There really is only one thing left to understand and that is whether you are willing to surrender the will of your mind and accept the will of your soul. You may feel like there is a new you after listening to these chapters. The old you is standing directly beside you with enough momentum to take over the new you. You will have a lot of sideways movement, backward movement, and of course, forward movement on your trek to enlightenment and this chapter clarifies that this is okay and expected.
As an artist, I have developed an intimate relationship with creation. Creating is not just what I do to make a living … it has helped me learn how to live. Working with my creative side has taught me a great deal about letting go and trusting. The nature of creativity is such that it draws from the unknown and manifests itself into the known. It is a gift given to us. Your ability to channel creativity will help in many areas of your life. It can help with problem solving and decision making. Every aspect of your life, from work to play and rest, can be enhanced by allowing creativity to use you. Working with creativity can become a way to live. In this chapter introduce some thought provoking ideas around the nature of creation, where it comes from and how it relates to God.
Meditation: Is it a practice or a study? How do we meditate? What are the benefits to it? Can anyone do it? Is it even real? These are all very valid questions that I know I had about meditation, mainly because I have heard so much about it and never spent much time with it. In this chapter, I offer some great tools to begin practicing meditation and I dispel many things that are misunderstood with the practice.
This Chapter is split up into two parts. First I share what the concept of unity means and how to bring a deeper sense of Unity with ourselves and God, as well as with others. In the second part I share several stories from my personal experiences with others and how we can create unity in our community. By looking at the qualities in others that we value and finding compassion and acceptance of others, we draw the experience of unity to ourselves and our community.
Have you ever thought to yourself whether you are truly living a life that is purposefully yours? Are you using your heart to guide your decision making for what is right for you? Do you ever hold yourself to old standards in how you used to be rather than what you can become? Instead of saying “I can’t” say “I will” and watch your world begin to change.
The baggage that you hold onto from your life experiences can be the very things that are holding you back from living a purposeful and love filled life. Why on earth would you be willing to carry the weight of your traumas on your back for miles and miles if they weren’t providing you with an opportunity to live a more peaceful life?
This chapter can change your outlook on how to operate within the relationship you have with others, and your partner. The material covered can help you deepen your relationship into a more sacred one where harmony and peace can freely flow.
