Growth

Ian Paul Marshall —  November 6, 2009 — 2 Comments

grwth“Life needs continuous growth. The moment you stop its growth, it starts dying. So go into the world full of songs, full of dance and abundant love, and give it unconditionally, without any judgment, to anybody who is receptive — and you will go on growing in the experience both deeper and higher.” OSHO

Lovers are the greatest givers. Giving their love. Giving themselves. Sharing their life. Moving and being moved by the motion of their hearts.

When we begin to fall in love we enter into a stage of accelerated growth. We expand our lives and live as if each moment of existence has grasped our hands tightly, and worried that the moment will pass us by, we hold on as fiercely as we can.

When we love we tap into the ever bountiful depths of existence. Which is a secret place hidden Continue Reading…

A Global Awakening Is Happening

aAwakening is word getting thrown around more and more nowadays but does any of us really know what this means?

What does awakening mean on a personal level? How about on a global level? How does awakening apply to business? What about family, schools, the arts…

Is every aspect of our lives being affected in some way? And what is happening really?

Maybe we can get some insight from the root meaning of the word Awaken: “to spring into being,” also,”to wake up;” “to rouse from sleep” or “to stir up, rouse to activity”. Source: http://www.etymonline.com

But what are we awakening to?

I posed the question on facebook, “What does the global awakening mean for you?” and here’s some of the responses:

“Global awakening means to me the evolution of consciousness to who and what we are as a being and a species along with the withheld information about humanities origins and our divine connection with God and the Universe.”
~ Shannon Ramon Jeffries

“Reaching the core, of our light body. Realization that humanity is one working mechanism. Activation of our dormant DNA strands that completes as part of our evolution. It means far much more.” ~ Priscilla Thompson

“We are not alone…” ~ Lama Pittman

“Interconnectedness, a conscious responsibility for our own evolution and leading by example.” ~ Maria Munoz

“Through earth and cosmic changes, evolving to a higher level of existence; becoming a more spiritual, loving, effective and responsible being.” ~ Heidi Herman

“When the harmonic resonance of collective consciousness and unconsciousness amplify ‘good’ ideals actions and dreams. When utopia over topples this current distopia of reality…” Lozza Natili

“It is the ripple effect. One person becomes enlightened, then his surroundings, then his community, his city, his country, his world, the universe at large. Everyone is Consciously living… and the realization that all is One.. is understood Consciously.. by all.” ~ Kalani George

As we can see the concept of a global awakening means different things to different people. Though if we look closely we can see some ideas that we may even call universal in relation to what this awakening means to me, you and the average joe next door:

Global Awakening Concepts

  • Remembering Our Connection To Source
  • Remembering Our Connection To Each Other
  • Realizing That We Are A Global Community
  • Taking Responsibility For Ourselves & Our Actions
  • Leading By Example
  • Being Conscious or Aware In Our Everyday Lives
  • Realizing That Heaven Is Here On Earth

A lot of people toss around the concept of universal love emerging within the hearts of all. That this love will enable the world to make the fundamental shift necessary to move into the next stage of human evolution. I think this is too much of a leap for the world to take right now.

You can’t fake a feeling. You can’t just walk up to someone and expect them to be down with the “All we need is love program.”

Later on. Further down the path yes. The individual will come to conclusion naturally. But at first they’ll just shut down, turn off, and tune out.

It seems that the most influential concept that may be necessary and easily accepted by everyone is the idea of our inherent connectedness.

Ancient Wisdom From The Land Down Under

by Ian Paul Marshall

ancient wisdom for modern awakeningWhen most people think of Australia images of koala bears, crocodile hunters and didgeridoos come to mind. But the land down under is also rich with a spiritual heritage that dates back thousands of years.

To find Australia’s hidden spiritual treasure one must turn their sights away from the countries modern cities and surftowns and journey into the outback in search of an ancient race of people whose stories trace back to the beginning of time itself.

A people that live close to the earth, respecting her sacredness, beauty and wisdom. They view themselves as mere custodians of the planet, nothing is truly theirs, and they do their best to work in harmony with nature and the seasons taking only what they need. A concept that is embodied in the statement “Tread Lightly”

Don't We All?

Don’t We All?

dontweallWe can all learn from this . . . .

I was parked in front of the mall wiping off my car. I had just come from the car wash and was waiting for my wife to get out of work.

Coming my way from across the parking lot was what society would consider a bum.

From the looks of him, he had no car, no home, no clean clothes and no money. There are times when you feel generous but there are other times that you just don’t want to be bothered. This was one of those “don’t want to be bothered times.”

“I hope he doesn’t ask me for any money,” I thought. He didn’t.

He came and sat on the curb in front of the bus stop but he didn’t look like he could have enough money to even ride the bus.

After a few minutes he spoke. “That’s a very pretty car,” he said. He was ragged but he had an air of dignity around him. His scraggly blond beard keep more than his face warm.

I said, “thanks,” and continued wiping off my car.

He sat there quietly as I worked. The expected plea for money never came. As the silence between us widened something inside said, “ask him if he needs any help.” I was sure that he would say “yes” but I held true to the inner voice.

“Do you need any help?” I asked.

He answered in three simple but profound words that I shall never forget. We often look for wisdom in great men and women. We expect it from those of higher learning and accomplishments.

I expected nothing but an outstretched grimy hand. He spoke the three words that shook me.

“Don’t we all?” he said.

I was feeling high and mighty, successful and important, above a bum in the street, until those three words hit me like a twelve gauge shotgun. Don’t we all?

I needed help. Maybe not for bus fare or a place to sleep, but I needed help. I reached in my wallet and gave him not only enough for bus fare, but enough to get a warm meal and shelter for the day. Those three little words still ring true.

No matter how much you have, no matter how much you have accomplished, you need help too.

No matter how little you have, no matter how loaded you are with problems, even without money or a place to sleep, you can give help.

Even if it’s just a compliment, you can give that. You never know when you may see someone that appears to have it all. They are waiting on you to give them what they don’t have. A different perspective on life, a glimpse at something beautiful, a respite from daily chaos, that only you through a torn world can see.

Maybe the man was just a homeless stranger wandering the streets. Maybe he was more than that.

Maybe he was sent by a power that is great and wise, to minister to a soul too comfortable in themselves.

Maybe God looked down, called an Angl, dressed him like a bum, then said, “go minister to that man cleaning the car, that man needs help.”

Don’t we all?

Good Luck What Is It Really?

Ian Marshall —  September 20, 2009 — 1 Comment

Good Luck

flc“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”

~ Thomas Jefferson

So what does it mean to be lucky? Or what has happened when we run into a string of good luck?

I think the quote above by Thomas Jefferson can give us a couple clues on the subject of good luck and how we can draw more of it into our lives.

First of all is believing in luck or believing that you are actually a lucky person is the start of the process. Another way of saying this in Law of Attraction terms is to believe that the universe will and does conspire in your favor. That whatever it is you hold within your mind with a feeling of completion shall eventually be yours.

Utilizing The Law of Attraction

by Jack Canfield

loa

The law of attraction states that you will attract into your life–whether wanted or unwanted–whatever you give your energy, focus, and attention to.

 

You are constantly giving off vibrations of energy when you think and feel. These vibrations can be picked up and received by other people. That’s why people say, “he has good vibes,” or “he gives off bad vibes.” You are constantly giving off vibrations — literally!

 

If you’re feeling excited, enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, loving, appreciative, abundant, prosperous, relaxed and peaceful, you are giving off positive vibrations.

The Trace Back Process

path_Of_Light

It’s been said that we live in a dream world. That we’re surrounded by dreams. In the Kyballion the Three Initiates say that ALL IS MIND. But have we ever stopped to think about this?

Even the Buddha said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.”

So this is a little round about way or experiment to help us realize the power that we have…

The Trace Back Process Experiment

You’re in front of a computer, reading these words.

Question: Where did the computer come from?

Answer: From the store and the store got it from the manufacturer. The creator of the computer.

Q: Where did the creator get the computer from?

A: The creator had an idea for a computer, designed it in detail and then created it. So the computer came from an idea in the Creators mind.

Q: What else is near you?

A: A coffee cup.

Q: So where did the cup come from?

A: It was a gift from my father in law. He bought it in a store and the store bought it from a wholesaler. The wholesaler bought it from its creator.

Q: So where did the creator get it from?

A: The creator had an inspirational idea for a coffee cup, designed it in detail, and then created it. So it came from an idea within the Creator’s mind.

Now look around you and whatever your eye falls upon ask yourself, “Where did this come from?” Let yourself trace it back. Practice this process several time this week.

Is the following statement true and in accordance with what you have learned?

BEHIND ALL THAT IS VISIBLE, THERE IS THE INVISIBLE POWER OF THE MIND.

Co-Creating Creation

Ian Marshall —  August 17, 2009 — Leave a comment

Become A Co-Creator of Creation

co-creationThere is one Awesome Power flowing through all the Universe. It penetrates and permeates both the seen and unseen realms. It is a power for good that is ever present and calls us always to our own divine glory. I call this power Spirit, Creator, the Source.

I know now that I am always one with this power. Forever together in a bond of boundlessness. I know this amazing Spirit works for me because is works through me. And I know that I am truly blessed, for I have been given dominion over my own life and have received the gift of free will.

I accept this gift now.

I open myself to the divine flow of Spirit. I can feel the confidence of my creator wash over me and find myself at ease in this moment. A new certainty comes over me as I know and feel that the universe responds to my command. I shall but say the word and mountains shall move. I shall steer my thoughts to splendor and I will be clothed in garments of light. I dream a dream and know well that it is a reality.

In this magnificent moment I call out to the Infinite Spirit that flows through me and all the Universe and I give thanks for the blessing I call my life. I honor this sacred gift and choose now to create a world worthy of me, my children and all of humanity. I am filled with courage to pursue my dreams. I am filled with the power to make those dreams a reality. I am an infinite Child Of God and I bow down in deep reverence to the miracle of life itself.

Knowing well that my words are full of power and light I release them to the Universal Law of life. I am certain that as I have said it so shall it be.

And so it is.

OM.
