Unleashing The Power Within You

© Ian Paul Marshall

BWC-SM“A new species is arising on the planet. It is arising now, and you are it!”
~ Eckhart Tolle

Here’s some interesting facts…

81 percent of people polled in a global survey done by the Center For Work-Life Policy said that their careers are affecting their health in a negative way. 59 percent of them said that their relationships have suffered. And 50 percent of the people polled went so far as to say that even their sex life was worse because of the stress they experienced on the job.

Is there more to life than killing ourselves working at a job that we hate?

People from all over the world believe there is. Even going so far as to think that it’s time to really change the collective direction where humanity is heading. You’re one of the courageous souls who has answered that call and I am eternally grateful to you for that.

People from all over the globe, irregardless of color, country or religious background are awakening to the universal language of love.

Humanity is opening is itself up to a new dawn.

A brilliant awareness is emerging within each and every one of us.

We’re reaching a moment of clarity where we’re finally accepting our own divinity and choosing to take responsibility for our own lives and the world in which we call home.

If we become quiet for but a moment we can feel deep within ourselves something stirring. That a global awakening is coming. Beyond our everyday lives we know that the next step in our evolution is fast approaching.

Humanity as a whole is starting to tap into the universal matrix of creation itself and we’re truly beginning to see and understand the true inter-connectivity of us all.

We’re all being presented with an amazing opportunity now. Humanity is coming to a point in it’s evolution where a major change is possible. But that change has to happen within ourselves. We have to become the change we wish to see within the world.

It’s my hope that this article, Becoming A World Changer, will help you unleash the amazing power within you.  For you are amazing and there is a magnificence within you that’s beyond anything that you can imagine.

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”

The Twelve Keys of Spiritual Activism

spiritual-activism

Humanity Healing’s Twelve Keys of Spiritual Activism

“Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today.
Let us begin.”
~ Mother Theresa

The embrace of the path of Spiritual Activism enables individuals or groups to develop the noble qualities of compassion, wisdom and gratitude. It is in itself a Path of Transformation – a Spiritual Blueprint for living. We can shift our perspectives of reality through seeking service beyond self by practicing the Gifts of Service. The core dynamics behind the Spiritual Keys of Activism are creativity, adaptability, understanding and the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

Spiritual Activism Key 1

1. All Action MUST be Based on Compassion

When championing a Cause, the mindset must be altruistic and the motivating emotion must be positive. Spiritual Activism is action for the benefit of something, not against something.

“When you have a pro-peace rally, I will be there.”
~ Mother Theresa’s response to a question about why she did not attend an anti-war rally.

Spiritual Activism Key 2

2. Compassion Flows from the Understanding of the Connection Between All Living Beings

We are all connected through our shared Humanity. When you learn to see that our differences are superficial and our similarities manifest, sympathy (or worse, pity) gives way to compassion. Our actions shift from one of “us helping them” to one of “for the good of All”. We become One.

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.”
~ Thomas Merton

Spiritual Activism Key 3

3. Compassion Must Be Applied With Wisdom

There are more Causes that exist than an individual or group can possibly be involved with. It is important to choose your causes carefully. Learn to Act instead of React.

“That is true wisdom, to know how to alter one’s mind when occasion demands it.”
~ Terence

Spiritual Activism Key 4

4. Apply Synergy and Teamwork to Accomplish Goals

Synergy is the process where two or more actions combine to produce an effect greater than the sum of its individual parts. Like ripples in a pond, spiritual actions combine and build on each other to magnify an effect beyond what each could do individually. Whenever possible, team up with others to acquire a multifaceted and more holistic approach.

“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.”
~ Unknown

Spiritual Activism Key 5

5. Spiritual Activism is the Pursuit of Service for the Good of All, Not for the Advancement or Benefit of Individuals or Selected Communities

The mindset behind your actions must be noble, holistic, Universal and non-partisan. Be mindful that ego and self-service have no place in Spiritual Activism.

“Common folk, not statesmen, nor generals nor great men of affairs, but just simple plain men and women, can do something to build a better, peaceful world. The future hope of peace lies with such personal service.”
~ Henry Cadbury

“Reverence for Life affords me my fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, assisting, and enhancing life and that to destroy, harm, or to hinder life is evil. Affirmation of the world — that is affirmation of the will to live, which appears in phenomenal forms all around me — is only possible for me in that I give myself out for other life.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

Spiritual Activism Key 6

6. Pursue Integrity, Honesty and Dignity in the Conduct of Your Actions

Embrace Mindfulness in the application of your activities and be aware of how your actions may be perceived by others. Machiavelli’s “The ends justify the means” has no place in Spiritual Activism. If our methods are not noble, our results will not be either. Practice Spiritual Transparency, allowing negative energies to bypass your system without harming it.

“Integrity is doing the right thing even if no one is watching.”
~ Unknown

Spiritual Activism Key 7

7. Do not Defame Your Detractors or Those Who Doubt You

A confrontational approach leads to a defensive reaction. Approach others with Openness and Compassion in your heart. Build on the commonalities between you instead of focusing on the differences. As much as possible, detach yourself from the results of your actions. Aspire to always be a Peacemaker.

“Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Spiritual Activism Key 8

8. Raising Another Up Raises You Up As Well

Helping another becomes a form of self-love as well as an expression of outward love. This becomes an upwardly spiraling cycle of increasing awareness, connection, compassion, involvement, capacity, and back to increasing awareness.

“Oh, Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.”
~Saint Francis Prayer

“Compassionate action involves working with ourselves as much as working with others.”
~ Pema Chodron

Spiritual Activism Key 9

9. Learn to Listen to Your Heart and Not Your Mind
You mind may only see the problem. Your heart will always feel the solution. Learn to act with Faith and cultivate a loving perception when facing collective problems.

“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Spiritual Activism Key 10

10. Search Out Viable and Sustainable Solutions

Seek out solutions that maintain or restores the dignity of individual human and their communities. The goal of Spiritual Activism is to raise another up, not make them dependant.

“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”
~ Jesus

“We have not inherited the world from our forefathers. We have borrowed it from our children.”
~ Kashmiri proverb

Spiritual Activism Key 11

11. Do Not Judge Yourself Simply By The Results Of Your Actions
Maintain a sense of detachment as to overall results. Embrace mindfulness as you intentionally diminish a judging attitude while keeping watchfulness on the gates of your heart. The ultimate goal of Spiritual Activism is to unconditionally raise the understanding and support of Humanity, with no exceptions. This achievement is larger than any individual. While individual projects can be completed, the sum is so much greater than its parts. Learn to see yourself not on where you have reached, but on the Path you are traveling. There is real fulfillment in just being called to serve humanitarian and spiritual causes.

“Every man stamps his value on himself. Man is made great or small by his own will.”
~ JCF von Schiller

” The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Spiritual Activism Key 12

12. Let Metta Be The Motivation For Your Actions
If you cultivate Metta (the practice of loving-kindness) in your heart, you will succeed. The Intention that is the motivating force behind your actions is paramount. Start from a position of pure and altruistic Love.

“A positive future cannot emerge from the mind of anger of despair”
~ Dalai Lama

“Kindness in giving creates Love.”
~ Lao Tzu

Humanity Healing’s 12 Keys of Spiritual Actvism

Spirituality is active. It’s involved in life. It’s alive in living. It’s there in the marketplace. Within the heart of the city it’s there beating it’s drum.

Your spiritual life is your whole life.

What good is it to sit there silent and feeling holy within the comfort and security of your home? This is not true spirituality. This is not truth embodied. Truth seeks out expression. Yes you need the silence. Yes you need the solitude. And this is what you come back to. This is where you lay your hat and your head at the end of the day.

But in the morn a new day is begun. A new you is made. And you’re given another chance to touch the pulse and passion of life with the very essence of existence which is your own very self.

Humanity’s Healing have crafted a beautiful vision of this active life in their Twelve Keys of Spiritual Activism. They lifted they veil and gazed deeply into the heart of existence. They are active within the world for they know that the world is active within their self. Check out what they’re up to. You may be inspired.

Be well and prosperous.

Loving Kindness

The Discourse on Loving Kindness by Buddha

loving kindness

This is what should be done by one who is skilled in goodness and who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech,
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied,
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.

Wishing: in gladness and in safety may all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be,
Whether they are weak or strong,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to be born, omitting none,
May all beings be at ease.

Let none deceive another or despise any being in any state.
Let none, through anger of ill-will wish harm upon another.

Like a mother protects her child, her only child with her life,
So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings.
Radiating kindness over the entire world:
Spreading upwards to the skies and downwards to the depths,
Outwards and unbounded, free from hatred and ill-will.

Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness, one should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.

By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

~ Buddha

The Cathar Prophecy

cathar prophecy

The Prophecy of the Cathars 1244

And the Cathars proclaimed that…

It has no fabric, only understanding.
It has no membership save those who know they belong.
It has no rivals, because it is non-competitive.
It has no ambition, because it only seeks to serve.
It knows of no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
It is not of itself, because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions
It acknowledges all great teachers of all the ages who have shown the truth of love.
Those who participate practice the truth of love in all their beings.
There is no walk of life or nationality that is a barrier. Those who are, know.
It seeks not to teach, but to be – and by being, enrich. It recognizes that the way we are may be the way of those around us, because we are that way.
It recognizes the whole planet as a being of which we are a part.
It recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transition, the ultimate alchemical act of conscious change of the ego into the voluntary return to the whole.
It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice but in the subtle realms of loving.
It salutes all those in the past who have blazoned the path but have paid the price.
It admits no hierarchy or structure, for no one is greater than another.
The members shall know each other by their deeds, and their being, and by their eyes and by no other sign save the fraternal embrace.
Each one will dedicate their life to the silent loving of their neighbor and environment and our world, while carrying out their daily task, no matter how humble.
It recognizes the supremacy of the great ideal, which may only be accomplished if the human race practices the supremacy of Love.
It has no reward to offer, either here or in the hereafter, save that of the ineffable joy of being and loving.
Each shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by stealth and teaching only by example.
They shall heal their neighbor, their community and their world.
They shall know no fear and feel no shame and their witness shall prevail over all odds.
It has no secret, no Arcanum, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want to be so, the world will change if we change ourselves first.
All those who belong, do so because they belong to the Church of Love.

Enlightened Rebellion

Ian Marshall —  May 25, 2009 — 3 Comments

enlightened-rebellion

Enlightened Rebellion

“The rebel is the very essence of religion. He brings into the world a change of consciousness – and if the consciousness changes, then the structure of the society is bound to follow it.” OSHO

Real change and lasting transformation can only happen if we have been truly moved. Where the core of our being is touched somehow and we are called to action. This change never happens through politics, laws or policies. None of these things actually touch your heart.

It may look like you’ve changed but it’s only on the surface. It’s only cosmetic. You’ve painted the roof but the foundation is still crumbling.

All of these influences happen outside of you and force the person into alignment with someone else’s vision of your life. And it may be true that you follow the laws, the rules, and the men that make them, but in the silence of your heart you will still be poor, angry, and weak.

And maybe there will come a moment where you decide to change the politicians, the laws and the policies. You have been pushed long enough and you have finally decided to push back.

This will be good for awhile for you will have discovered a slight glimpse of your power.

But in the end it will be a futile struggle for you will not have changed the men who are the politicians, who make the laws and create the policies.

So what is there to do? What can you do? Have you lost the fight? Is there no hope?

Don’t lose faith for there is hope, and in truth it’s the only true salvation for our planet, each other and our own self.

What is this new light?

Rebellion.

Enlightened Rebellion.

Not a fight or struggle with some outward opponent, system, or structure because we’ve seen that truly this won’t change anything at all. For what good are these changes if the people are still rotten to the core?

Enlightened Rebels Frighten Us For They Are Full Of Power And Confidence

This is about becoming a rebel with a cause. This is about metamorphosis. It’s about the caterpillar completely transforming into the butterfly. This rebellion is about going deep into the darkness of yourself, being at peace there, being aware there, and then emerging from those depths completely new and reborn.

This isn’t a fight with some outside force or a rally for some new and noble cause. It’s a challenge to journey to your inner source. A courageous call to do the great work of discovering who you are and knowing what you want.

Rebels frighten us for they are full of power and confidence. They’ve struggled against themselves and shattered the shackles that society has tried to place upon them. They challenge our beliefs and show to us our own ignorance.

They do these things not with their words but with their presence for their whole essence is alive with truth.

Enlightened Rebels Have Come To Know The Truth Of Their Existence

They are charismatic and charming and their wisdom has been honed from experience. And when they teach they do so by leading. For it’s always easier to lead the way. To show the path. To light the fire.

It’s far easier to create the world you want than it is to talk or dream about it.

Hard won truth is the reward for the rebels. A deep knowledge that can never be taken away from them. For they have heard the call of their heart and they’ve followed the light of their conscious. And though this path has not been easy for them, they have been blessed all the same. For they have come to know the truth of their existence. They have accepted their divinity and are now taking possession of their rightful inheritance.

The enlightened rebel is intuitive and listens for inspiration upon the wind. They know that every mouth speaks for God. And their hands and body are strong so that they can live the purpose that burns within their heart.

You May Touch This Power Now For Yourself

Their light is a reminder to humanity of the wild freedom that lies asleep within our own hearts.

Becoming a rebel is the only way for the world. For rebellion is a complete transformation. A break point happens. The old world no longer exists and all that’s left is the now. All that remains is this pure and sacred moment. A true a holy minute where life honestly fills our lungs for the very first time.

You may touch this power now for yourself.

Breathe deep and feel the potential of your presence. Breath out and hear the silent roar of your heart.

Enlightened Rebel’s are a leaders, they’re risk takers, trail blazers. They’re individuals moving within the whole. For they have realized that all of existence lives within them.

They live and cycle through the Four Elements of Awakening which are; Meditation, Revelation, Transformation and Inspiration.

Meditation fills them with presence.
Revelation gives them their purpose.
Transformation is the power of their joy and love.
And Inspiration is the effect of their actions.

The true rebellion has begun. Your sacred rebellion has begun. There’s no turning back now.

Stand proud and sure for the enlightened rebels shall create the new world and invite others to join them in their joyful celebration. For rebels are enlightened and they know that the world is calling them to it’s dance so they dance with passion. The rhythm of their laughing hearts leads them to be in holy harmony with all of life and they open their arms wide and embrace us all.

Enlightened Rebellion Day 30 Exercise

The Four Elements Of Awakening

MEDITATION
REVELATION
TRANSFORMATION
INSPIRATION

The first two elements are internal and the last two are external. A perfect balance. A seductive dance. Whole and complete.

Meditation fills the Enlightened Rebel with Presence

In the deep stillness of meditation a pure power is revealed to you. A strength and fullness opens up to you. An amazing experience of your own true self.

Affirmation = I AM

Revelation gives the Enlightened Rebel their Purpose

Each and every one of us has a purpose even if that purpose is to be an ambassador of human potential through right living. Through leading by example. But somewhere in that deep stillness is a dream waiting for you to fulfill.

Affirmation = I AM FILLED WITH PURPOSE, STRENGTH AND PERSEVERANCE

Transformation is the power of the Enlightened Rebel’s Joy and Love

The Enlightened Rebel is certain that love is the highest law and joy is the divine expression of that law in action.

Affirmation = I AM LOVE. I AM JOYFUL. I LOVE MYSELF. I LOVE ALL PEOPLE. I LOVE THE WORLD. I AM FILLED WITH LOVE AND JOY AND I SHARE THIS WITH ALL THE WORLD

Inspiration is the effect of the Enlightened Rebel’s Actions

The Enlightened Rebel always creates inspired action. They’re always co-creating with the creator. The Enlightened Rebel is always seeking out opportunities to inspire others to greatness.

Affirmation = I AM FILLED WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOD. THE PRESENCE OF GOD IS WITHIN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. ALL MY THOUGHTS, WORDS AND DEEDS ARE DONE WITH LOVE, REVERENCE AND COMPASSION. ALL OF LIFE IS GOD. ALL MY LIFE IS SACRED.

The Path

Ian Marshall —  May 24, 2009 — Leave a comment

The Path

“Follow your bliss.”
Joseph Campbell

There is no path, there is no way, there is only awareness. A deep and profound wisdom of thyself. A wakefulness that immerses you totally in this moment and the presence of your own magnificence.

The beauty of your unfolding lies within the courage you have to accept your power and embrace your responsibility for your thoughts, words and actions. Your journey will be joyful only if you allow yourself to come into alignment with your silence. For silence is the still point from which all things can be known.

But it’s not your duty to know all things, all you have to know is one thing and that is yourself. And once you come to know your own radiant awareness all things will be known

The secret key to your life lies within the wisdom of your heart. For it is through your emotional frequency that you know if your a moving closer to greatness or destruction.

The unfolding of your life is a creative process. For you’re creating, giving life to, and bringing into existence joy itself. So joy is the marker and as you make decisions that bring you joy and move you closer to bliss you step ever further into the glory of yourself.

From Your Imagination Springs Forth All The Possibilities Of Your Potential

There are two great secrets in this life; Life is to live and Love is to give. These two secrets are for you to explore in your own unique way. Use your imagination to journey forth into yourself.

From your imagination springs forth all the possibilities of your potential. An unlimited potency whereby you may be, do, or have anything that you set your thoughts and mind upon. Because once you let your mind come to rest within itself you will become aware that you are all things.

Know Your Own Greatness

Form and formlessness is your truth. While in the process of creating form be determined to see your dreams manifest into reality.

Persevere.

I won’t lie to you and tell you that all of life is magic, splendor and ease for in doing so I would be speaking to you from a place of lies.

I speak to you now of the truth.

The path is long. The struggle is hard. You will stumble and you will fall. You will be left to face your fears alone. You will want to give up. You will lose friends and family. You will doubt yourself. You will doubt the world. You will be angry with God. You will wonder if God exists. You will question whether anything you do is actually making a difference. You will feel alone. You won’t feel at all. You will experience all these things and more. And it will be through these moments that you will be free, and be given the amazing opportunity to know your own greatness.

Positive Emotion Expands Your Field Of Influence

For this journey is really a path to your own playfulness. A process of which will continue until the end of time. You will give birth to countless forms of yourself. Be joyful and have fun. Be at ease with yourself and the world. Seek out further opportunities to express the bountiful love that overflows from your heart.

Life is about contrast. Like’s and dislikes. Yes’s and no’s.

It’s in these moments that you are blessed, for each time you encounter these situations you come face to face with a moment of truth. A magical moment whereby you’re given the blessed chance to create yourself and a new chapter of your life. Each choice leads you further into the joyous journey of your own pure potential.

This Whole Process Is About You

Say Yes! to those moments that bring you joy. Steer yourself toward those people and experiences that make you feel good. For that positive emotion expands your field of influence and strengthens your will to give life.

Your ever increasing happiness, love and joy are the clear indicators of your own magnificent expansion. Seek out those choices and experiences that bring you into alignment and harmony with these emotions.

Variety and contrast gives rise to your preference. That preference, or liking, gives rise to your desire and passion. Your passion gives your intentions and desires their fuel, their power, their energy. Your emotions of thankfulness and gratitude brings the energy of your goals or dreams into your quantum reality.

This whole process is about you. Your preferences. Your desires and passions. Your power and energy. Your emotions of thankfulness and gratitude. Your great connection to the process of life. This is what it means to be selfish. To be fully present to yourself. For within you lies all the magic and wonder of the universe.

Enter now into the dark woods of your life, that sacred and blessed journey into yourself. For within the darkness and mystery of your own hidden potential, is the greatest adventure that you shall ever take. For it is a quest for your own immortality.

The Path Exercise

One of the most amazing movies in my opinion is an independent film called “What The Bleep Do We Know.” If you haven’t seen it yet do yourself the favor and go rent it tonight.
http://www.whatthebleep.com/

There’s a scene within the movie where one the experts that is interviewed talks about creating his day. It is an amazing piece and the transcript of it is below but the process that I want you to start integrating within your life is to become more and more comfortable with your power to consciously create your own reality.

A little exercise that I do everyday as I leave my home is this:

“I gaze around at the trees, the grass, the blue skies. I listen to the birds chirping, to the sounds of the cars on the street, and my footfalls on the pavement. I become aware of life and my presence within it. Then when I feel at peace and in oneness with life I create my day how I want it to happen.

So if I want people to be supportive of me I throw that out to the universe. If I want to experience joy I’ll throw that out to the universe. If I want an answer to a problem that I’m tackling I’ll throw that out to the universe.

The key is that everyday I choose to actively participate in the creation of it. I don’t decide the details I just decide the basic parameters and I let the universe fill in the rest.”

And here’s the Transcript from the movie:

I Create My Day
The most often referenced interview in the film What The Bleep Do We Know is Dr. Joe Dispenza’s comments on creating his day. In response to the numerous requests, the following is the transcript of that part of the interview.

“I wake up in the morning and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where I’m actually intentionally creating my day. But here’s the thing: When I create my day and out of nowhere little things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that’s possible. (This) gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day.

“So if we’re consciously designing our destiny, and if we’re consciously from a spiritual standpoint throwing in with the idea that our thoughts can affect our reality or affect our life — because reality equals life — then I have this little pact that I have when I create my day. I say, ‘I’m taking this time to create my day and I’m infecting the quantum field. Now if (it) is in fact the observer’s watching me the whole time that I’m doing this and there is a spiritual aspect to myself, then show me a sign today that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created, and bring them in a way that I won’t expect, so I’m as surprised at my ability to be able to experience these things. And make it so that I have no doubt that it’s come from you,’ and so I live my life, in a sense, all day long thinking about being a genius or thinking about being the glory and the power of God or thinking about being unconditional love.

“I’ll use living as a genius, for example. And as I do that during parts of the day, I’ll have thoughts that are so amazing, that cause a chill in my physical body, that have come from nowhere. But then I remember that that thought has an associated energy that’s produced an effect in my physical body. Now that’s a subjective experience, but the truth is is that I don’t think that unless I was creating my day to have unlimited thought, that that thought would come.”
