“You have all the neurological machinery to transcend time, to make this a skill. What some might call miracles, I describe as cases of individuals working toward changing their state of being, so that their bodies and minds are no longer merely a record of their past but become active partners, taking steps to a new and better future.”
“Transcending the Big Three: Peak Experiences and Ordinary Altered States of Consciousness At this point, you understand that the main obstacle to breaking the habit of being yourself is thinking and feeling equal to your environment, your body, and time. . . .”

WHEN THE SERVANT BECOMES THE MASTER – Part 8 – Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

TO LISTEN TO PART 8 OF THE STUDY GROUP, CLICK HERE


This audio tape is the studied chapter from the book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself,  by Joe Dispenza, which you can purchase on Amazon.  We are also excerpting the music of Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai: “Service” and “Call to Enchantment,” which can be purchased on i-Tunes.  

We will continue next Monday calls at 8 PM, by calling 218-936-4986, pass code 48201.

We also discussed The Ultimate Secret to Getting Absolutely Everything You Want by Michael Hernacki, which says in order to accomplish something, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish it. When you form an intention and keep fast to it, you will eventually achieve the results you want.  An open mind is receptive to the possible, the untried, the unproven. It doesn’t make judgments. It doesn’t make excuses for why things cannot be. It doesn’t refuse what is asked of it, no matter how illogical the request may seem. You only two things: 1. A clear idea of what you want (an objective).  It’s helpful to write down what you want in words that are as specific as you can make them. 2. Commitment. This, like willingness, is an attitude, a feeling of confidence that you’ll continue to pursue what you want, no matter what happens, a firm belief that what you want is so desirable and so important to you that, in the end, it will be worth doing whatever you must do to get it.

CHANGE YOUR MIND BY BEING GREATER THAN TIME, SPACE AND BODY – Part 4 – Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

TO LISTEN TO PART 4 OF THE STUDY GROUP, CLICK HERE

This audio tape is an excerpt from the studied chapter “OVERCOMING YOUR ENVIRONMENTbreaking-the-habit-of-being-yourself,” from the book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself,  by Joe Dispenza, at pp. 33-43, which you can purchase on Amazon.  We are also excerpting the music of Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai: “If Men Were at Peace” and “Call to Enchantment,” which can be purchased on i-Tunes.

“Most people focus on three things in life: their environment, their bodies, and time. They don’t just focus on those three elements, they think equal to them. But to break the habit of being yourself, you have to think greater than the circumstances of your life, be greater than the feelings that you have memorized in your body, and live in a new line of time. If you want to change, you must have in your thoughts an idealized self—a model that you can emulate, which is different from, and better than, the ‘you’ that exists today in your particular environment, body, and time.” Dispenza, Joe. Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.

WE ARE ALL AGENTS OF CHANGE

The full context of change is peculiar to our circumstances and comes in so many shades of determination, power, growth, and pressure that by their sheer nature, they  will draw us out of conventional wisdom, and lift us from the box of conventionality, and catapult us into the stream of pure possibility and amazing potential.
sunrise3Where do I start,  some might ask.

Another might say, how fast can I grow.

Many will say I am angry and comfortable in my anger so I want to remain in the space of opposition.

Gandhi would say I don’t take sides yet I am every side.

My she-roe of all times Harriet Tubman would say, I will meet you on a cold winter night, when you are without compass, or torch, or sufficient clothing against the bloodhounds and the cold winter air, and I will lead you through the underground railroad of strength and pull you through the power of hatred and resistance until you find yourself on the other side of knowing.

sunset6The Chief of Fire Operations would say throw away your script and your PowerPoint and just let them see the spirit of who you are and listen to why change is important: how even the most conservative of us, the most hopeful of us, the most amazing of us, the most loving of us are all agents of change.

The Captains tell me we have an important job to do, important skills to learn, seats of fire to extinguish, but we also have important ground to stand on – a tradition which grew from my father’s father’s father who fought fires and saved lives and taught me how to be family – a family that now realizes it is male and female and trans and bi and gay and queer and all shades of skin and all textures of religion and all skills of comprehension and all complexities of mind with the presence of all voices of God or no-God, the common denominator of which is a love so strong that I will give you my life.

I will rescue you.
loveworkThe courage of change stands at the edge of redemption, the fear of falling, the blackness of fire, the lost of hope, the roof of abandon and catches you just before you go over the edge of the abyss and holds you there beyond politics, beyond bigotry, beyond religion, and sees you as neither mind nor body but soul and resuscitates you until you can breathe again. So that you can return to each moment that realizes change is always possible.

We walk the water of impossibilities, and find that we have the courage to create outside of the box of conventionality, to tell a new story of strength, to dance beyond the realm of fear, to climb into the fresh space of deep listening, to witness that each and every one of us is an agent of change.

We balance ourselves in the legal framework of policies and protections and best practices and better than the best like a careful blade of the law, to make sure that we color within the lines, until we learn to express ourselves outside of them.

love102

All adversaries activate change.

When I was a little kid, about five years old, my cousins taught me a game called “tonk”; and part of it included a trump card that could win over cards.  It was something that we wanted, something that we could use, something that empowered us to leave the ordinary deck with a new sense of awareness into the extraordinary energy of winning, and find ourselves in that captivating awareness of now in a reality of dissonant voices that struggle to be heard, that find themselves resurrected in the streets of protests and revitalized realms of caring and emerging battles of pride.  We never knew we had to get back to the basics of inclusion, and never knew that the sheer vote of a single card would trump us, into realizing that we have to take our heads out of our proverbial yesterdays.  We have to realize that tomorrow is already here.

david-renshaw-at-the-wallThe wall of blame, the wall of distance, the wall of hatred, the wall of envy, the wall of false pride, the wall of lies, the wall of resistance, the wall of fear has got to come down, so we can really see that we are one, despite our differences.

PRAY6

This is a prayer that we give our best to our work environment, regardless of what shape it may take or where it might be or what it might demand, and that we come to it not so much expecting it to give to us but for us to give to it. May we find there whatever is in
accordance with Spirit’s desire for our growth. May we perform no task out of greed or selfishness or deceit.
PRAY10This is a prayer that we not lose ourselves in the fabric of the law firm, the corporate world, the police force, the military, the government, the university, the hospital—or wherever we find ourselves collectively giving to society—but that we understand that Spirit put us there for a reason, and part of that reason is what we as individuals bring as separate, creative expressions of Spirit.

lightThis is a prayer that we have the vision and the faith to celebrate our gifts with every task that we perform by never being afraid to speak our truths and tell our stories and do our best. Being the best at who we are in all of our imperfections, not perfection itself, is a blessing.
PRAY8This is a prayer that we put our egos aside to contribute what we can, whatever guise it may take, and that we be there to mentor those who need mentoring and that we grow and improve ourselves and increase our knowledge. We pray that we continually bless others in ways we cannot even imagine.
light3

This is a prayer that we use the work environment to cultivate whatever gifts and talents we have and take them out into the world to continue to develop them and to bless others by doing so. We are constantly growing, constantly learning, and constantly developing better judgment and greater resources, which can ultimately contribute to even greater good, productivity and peace than we currently experience.
LIGHT 5

Each lesson, each test, each job, and each performance inevitably prepares us for the next. Life strengthens us through our challenges and our struggles and even our suffering; and the lessons that we learn, the strength that we develop, the faith that we nurture through our experiences at work – whether they appear to be positive or negative – serve us as well as our workplaces because they enhance our creativity, courage, and commitment.
light31If others second-guess our skills and abilities, it only shows their shortcomings, their fears, and their need to grow, not our own. More importantly, the opinions of others are grossly over-rated and give us an opportunity to trust our own judgment. This means that we must be open-minded and receptive to good advice but know the difference between someone else’s judgment and our own wisdom – by developing a discernment that is not merely intellectual but Spirit- based.
Mary and MarthaCentering in Spirit helps us stand strong in the workplace, to be a tremendous success and a great asset because Spirit guides us continuously. Regardless of what we are doing, all we need to do is to be open and receptive to that guidance.
beauty eightThis is a prayer that we center ourselves in the guidance that Spirit gives us, especially in the midst of those who do not recognize our greatness, those who question our worth, those who diminish what we can offer. Only God realizes our greatness, and God puts us in our right time, at our appointed place to contribute, develop, and move forward. This is a prayer for us to shine our light, our gifts, our talents – that only we can offer.
PRAY11This is a prayer that we find a space for Spirit at work. We spend such an enormous amount of time giving to our jobs and our businesses that if we do not take Spirit there, it is absent for 75% or more of the time that we live. There is no separation between us and Spirit merely because we leave church, or temple, or synagogue, or mosque. This is a prayer that we continue to be centered in Spirit—particularly in places that are most in need of its presence. This is a prayer that we allow Spirit to use us and to be so centered in Spirit that we realize it is with us—especially at work. This is a prayer that we open our consciousness to the presence of Spirit in the mundane and everyday, ordinary encounter. . . .

GOD ALONE

Rev Loving listening to SpiritJoel Goldsmith wrote that the “answer, the solution to all problems, is the realized Christ . . . . Christ risen in our consciousness, Christ raised up from the tomb through meditation.”  He says that we should devote one meditation period alone each day to God: “God alone.”

In this period of God alone, we center ourselves in God and ask for We lovednothing.  This is the ultimate communion – to just be in God’s presence, to just sit in the kingdom, to just be a witness to the activity of Christ in our minds, light in our bodies, and grace in our souls.

Circle of PrayerIn the kingdom, we can trace our steps backward from the far country with the assurance that our deliverance is eternal and find ourselves, once again covered in the best robes of salvation.

In the kingdom, we return the garden that gives without ceasing.  We see the fruit that has always been hanging. We realize that it was never eaten, that even when it is plucked, its branches remain low for our reach.  Our fruit remains fresh in the awareness that there is neither good nor evil, only God alone.

Spiritmuv Prayer Circle 3God is a Brown Girl Too 2010 Retreat 073Here, in the heart of God, I see Moses.  He never died.  He simply became that which truth is and always will be.  He had no need to enter that which he already was.  This is the space of sacred breath and gentle silence.

I sit on the edge of nothingness into not one – but thousands, millions, infinite meditations that do nothing but listen.

Just one breath breathing into another is holier than a song.  This is where we find ourselves in the loving embrace of Jesus’ eyes as he carried our cross.  I will never leave you nor forsake you, he said.  I will send the Holy Spirit to be your teacher, counselor and guide.

The Holy Spirit is neither Christian, nor Muslim, nor Hindu, nor Jew but is that vast intersection of all faiths, struggling for expression when all they have to do is listen.
