Place 100% attention on whatever little appears to be working out for you, and quickly discover how 100% of the things are working out for you 🙂

Just as acceptance is not remotely condoning or resignation, contentment is not remotely comfortableness or complacency. Acceptance and contentment are, paradoxically, the springboards of all natural transformation. (All other “change” is a form of suffering.)

Can someone’s action be a consequence of yours? (Or vice versa?)

No, not Really.

Someone’s action is a consequence of their (previous) action. 🙂 And your action is a consequence of your (previous) action. The two (that are not-two) intersect (whether in resonance, consonance or dissonance), and give an appearance of relationship/ correlation/ causation.  (more…)

If you are concerned about climate change (and are reasonably affluent and otherwise abled), consider these possibilities best you can, before laughing at “those unscientific fools” or talking about systemic change:

— Live in square footage no greater than you truly require
— Use your two pretty feet to get around most places, most of the time
— Buy local, unpackaged groceries that you can personally carry (and no more) in reusable bags  (more…)

The dense, suffocating haze hanging over Seattle (and Portland and Vancouver) from the regional forest fires is a fitting metaphor for what happens in the subtle energy whenever there is en masse reaction of unprocessed anger and pain to any event. A dense, suffocating haze is created, (invisible to most everyone and) far more toxic and hazardous to universal well-being than the event itself. (What died in the fire of the day is already dead.) And like the trees around us are now silently serving by “working hard” to clear the air for all, there are beings (yes, human too, especially children under 4), who, integral to their inherent design, silently serve by “working hard” to clear the air for all, when such a venting and projection of thoughts and emotions occurs at mass scale. So, if we are capable, we’re well advised (and served!) to pause, and witness / observe ourselves — observing is the alchemy — instead of indulging our habit of venting and outrage over the next thing.

Needless to say, it’s ironic to add more haze to the current haze by complaining and venting about it. Let’s at least filter our own air 🙂 And drink lots of water, breathe (best as possible), and simply observe our inclination to complain willy nilly at the slightest discomfort, while at other times lamenting the terrible pain of distant peoples.

All study is of (temporary) phenomena; all stories are of (personal) experience. When we combine the two, it’s all even more tenuous! Once there is Realization, there is disinterest (neutrality) in study and story, with direct and pure interest in (embracing of) phenomena and experience. Everything may be observed or enjoyed, and nothing need be interpreted or claimed.

The prevalent misconception about acceptance arises from the mind equating acceptance with resignation, or with condoning “evil.”

The paradox is that acceptance of evil — Loving it in neutrality, which means to dissolve one’s own triggers to it — is the true end of “evil.”

How so? Since one’s own triggers/reactivity provide (energetic) sustenance to evil and keep it alive, the end of the triggers/reactivity is the end of such feeding and sustenance. Acceptance, of course, means wholly accepting one’s triggers as well — without venting/acting them out — and so embraced, they dissolve!  

Experiment and see. Notice how the tiniest trigger dissolving within, corresponds “soon” to its matching phenomenon disappearing from your immediate experience. (The common belief is that the phenomenon is triggering me, but actually, the phenomenon is a manifest reflection of my triggers!) Now “scale” this to mass consciousness…
