Opening Originality

It’s a fad to many. To speak of original thought, concept, even original ideas of fashion, art, poetry, paintings etc these days. A fad truly, for the concept of originality isn’t really present in any of them, but merely a rehashed version of something from the past of human history. Some would claim that it is impossible to indeed create something original, for we always have to borrow something from the past in order to create something of the future. Could this be it then? Let us explore.

First something simplistic. Originality, would by very definition of the word point to something that has not existed before. And so it is unique and unprecedented. It appears into reality as something that was not there before. And so first of all we have the term itself, which is relative, that is to say it exists within Time. Original, therefore is presented as a concept, idea just to compare it with a past timeline. Original then first has to be a concept or an idea, which then is further developed into anything further, be it a way of live, a law, a scientific application, maybe even organized religion or such. Original does not involve itself, with application of using already developed tools, such as the current living standards, practices, tools and techniques we already have at our disposal. For that would constitute what is called evolution. What we are today, as a human race, is a result of continuous evolution that has happened over course of millennia. So evolution is different from originality. Originality, as we are speaking of here for the purposes of this brief examination, is the creation of something unprecedented in the past. It is important to note that, for many confuse Evolution with Originality and therefore the claim that nothing original can be born, for we have to use the past to create the future. The tools are to be used, which were born of evolution, and yet we create something from them, which was never there in human civilization before. Like a light bulb for example. Like the creation of new art forms, as artistic form of expression itself, not just painting or poetry, but something that inherently did not exist before as even art. In this day and age of fantastic communication tools and the fifth landmark called the Internet; there is a tendency for humans to equally generate and share very powerful concepts, paradigms and ideas, which are all original thoughts. This is the engine of powerful creation of the future. If we take all the collective of blogs out there, and the ideas presented there, and crunch them with all the ideas presented by minds of the past, I am sure we will come up with a tremendous base of Original thought. This is good. For it is a catalyst for other minds. An inspiration perhaps. An urge to create more Original thoughts and concepts in all directions from science to spirituality and everything in between.

Now a step deeper. What about the origins of an Original thought? Where does this come from? Wherein lies this source of origins of any original thought itself? Every human reading this knows that this would transcend the realms of cognitive or reasoning faculty of the synapse. It does not come from the brain. It has to come from something “beyond” into the physical apparatus, called the neuron. And so it is an inner knowing of every human that this originality is always transcendent phenomena. Many shy to accept it, others fight the idea. But all are aware of it and know the source to be mysterious place. And yet this mysterious source of all that is Original, feels like a familiar place, for we all visit it, with what we call intuitive thought. It can come to a painter, who dreams of it. Or a poet who strings the words, using this mysterious infinite thesaurus, self-actualizing itself into a poetic words and expression. And so even as we use the same alphabets created before, same paints that we used before and same piano or violin that was invented before, we can compose an entirely different original masterpiece that is original and does not have a precedent in any aspect. Not style, not presentation, not idea, not note, not delivery or structure. So this realm of originality is using evolved tools, ideas, inventions to create something completely original which did not exist in the past timeline.

One step even more deeper. Where can we create originality which does not even use tools, ideas etc from the past? What would that originality look like then? That would be an area perhaps, where the idea or concept is giving birth to new tools itself. It would perhaps be a time in our human past, where wheel or a light bulb is developed. When that which we define as tools, itself is defined or brought into discovery via inventions. So one could say in this context, that Originality itself is an evolution of sorts, where inventions of today, becomes the toolset for tomorrow to building more inventions as tools which becomes more sophisticated original works and forms of tomorrow. Does originality then become the grassroots steps in the process of human evolution itself? 

Another step further. What gives birth to Originality which creates the Original itself? In other words, what gives birth to anything that is original? The transcendent aspect of life. Now that goes beyond all cognition and it is something to which one can only give pointers to. It is that which is not linear. It is lateral, inside, outside. It permeates everything and everyone and it is multidimensional. It is within you, outside of you, it permeates your being and everything you know and you do not know also. It is the very essence of you itself. 

The Sensuality of Consciousness

So as the new energies are broadening the awareness of all here, now, it seems that these wider sense of awareness, be it of self or of others or about the energies themselves, there comes a point, when we are faced with the challenge of integrating all parts of ourselves. Integration. As opposed to separation. And these are often individual, as you know. You have arrived at a point, truly, where all your search for trying to find that one truth, one rule, one mantra has truly failed you and led you on a path that is like trying to chase your own tail, going round and round in circles, has it not?! But now, the awareness being rewired and readjusted to the new energies, these seem to be centered with self. Your Self. And so, as your self, your I AM self, is truly becoming more aware of all your desires, choices and actions, they morph into being termed by you as energy movements in various directions that you, as consciousness are being at any given time. The point where they are truly troubling, in a sense, for you, is that your mind is trying to grasp this. Which it truly cannot. Even these words are being read by your mind, one word at a time, and what you are reading here, also has two parts, one your mind, and one the true message behind it which your self is reading , here, now. Mind cannot ever hope to know consciousness, for the mind itself rests within the bowl of consciousness. It is the contained within the container of consciousness. And so consciousness being larger than mind, makes you wonder, what other things are hanging around, within this bowl of consciousness, other than your mind, does it not?! And still, you are trying to capture that with the mind, which is not possible at all, but what other partners are there to mind, which sit in the same bowl of consciousness? I leave you to ponder that. Not by these words, but by sharing something within these words, that has given you, that concept.

Meanwhile, there is sensuality. The essential nature of consciousness, which also beckons you, as you become this wider awareness of self. This bigger you, now, wants to embrace more, do more, be more, have more in all ways, always. And you fight this. You fight this, for you need the singularness of the familiar world of security and predictability that you have built around yourself in your daily lives. Job. Partners. Business. Family. Friends. And so on. You have to understand something here, dear old soul. The consciousness that is you, is, by nature, sensual. It wants to experience, expand and express. It wants to know and become more of itself. In all ways. It does not care, about your mundane sense of attachments, other than to know and feel, by all those three means, experience, expansion and expression of itself. And how are you going to go about that, if you try to lock yourself up in this limited box of experiences that you call your daily lives? And so these new energies are being rather “Pushy” about this, and are so much in the face of all humanity now, in a way that would seem like they are forcing you out of your comfort zones, your securities and the stuckness that you were in, all along, without even knowing it consciously. And now you are seeing indeed, all of this. It is you with you, in essence. It was all along. Only now, you are more aware. More keenly aware of this, than ever before. And it does not leave you. Once you grow into something, you truly, cannot go backwards now, can you. Expansion is that way. Your consciousness is that way.

And so these three things, expansion, experience and expression, make your consciousness a truly sensual being. And so you would avoid yourself a lot of unecessary pain and suffering and searching around in circles, if you just understood that real nature of you. The sensual one. The one who wants to feel, touch, taste, smell, hear with your senses in this body, the one who is the master of all of them and makes the choice of what to experience, how to express and chooses that experience at any given moment. Avoid the pitfall of trying to separate your sensuality, from the old worn out ideas of going into denial, self deprication, penance, chanting or following discipline, all the processing that you endlessly carry out as a ways of disowning something that you truly are. True denial, old soul, is not accepting all of you, is it not? True denial, is disowning this reality, as some illusion and making something else a reality is it not? This is an age old battle of concepts within humanity, deeply buried and one that will not go away easily, and there is a good reason for that. Negating all your previous attempts, all your past life energies that are with you even here, now, resisting these very truths, is the one that does not want to accept, the foolishness of what you did all those other times. The truly easy thing to realize is ones own foolishness and it is also, truly, one of the most difficult things for one to accept for oneself. The only place, then you will arrive soon after this, is there is nothing to forgive, no one to blame, or none is really foolish at all. It has all been about a journey. Thats all. All the qualifications and summaries and judgements are merely your own mental creations. All the hurt there is, is for the fact, that you could have had it so much easier, if you had just let go of it all, and embrace this true nature of your self.

And so as we leave this space of knowing, old soul, why not go today, allow yourself to be all of you, without boundaries, routines and all the ifs and buts of your mind, all the planning and allow yourself to be sensual. All of it you truly came to experience here. Now claim it and enjoy it with all your being. And know that you are loving you profoundly, by doing just those very simple things, if only, all of you, is present, experiencing, expressing and expanding, in those everyday moments.

A Civilization of Celebration

Everything humanity has always been or done, is centered around celebration. From cradle to the grave, all humans do, is celebrate. Look at your own life. What do you indeed live for?? it is celebration at every opportunity, is it not? You celebrate your own birthdays too. Even Marriage, Death, New borns, everything is a celebration. Every astrological event is a celebration. Every crop harvest, every planting season is a celebration. Every song to sing, every tradition to uphold, every ocassion is there, all for the sake of humans getting together and creating an event of a vibration, called celebration. It is the signature of human civilization, right from the most remote tribes of Africa to the most industrialized, urbanized city in America, the essence is the same. Celebration. And so in these new energies, how does this translate to and what profundities are involved in there, you might ask?

It has been the urge of human to create harmony between themselves and other humans. Celebration event is a practical development of such an innate instinct in each of us. The call to bring together all humanity, let it be in pain and suffering in the form of revolutions, or be it everyday event like celebration of life or death. And yet, humans never even pause to consider what is it that brings humans in this way, unique as it is to humans only on this planet. No other animal celebrates any event. There is no signature left to any event by them. For other animals, it is just a happening, like the wind blowing through the trees, or the rain coming.

Humans on the other hand, create energy. The celebration event is one, which creates a signature on the crystalline grid. This is the calling humans really feel and have always done so. It is a calling. It is innate. It is in each of you reading this and all other humans too, whether they know it or not. So in this new energy, when the crystalline grid and magnetics are themselves evolving, new humanity is being birthed and in that, where is the celebration aspect seen? It is being currently seen everywhere in all countries, which are rising up in their claim to freedom. Humanity is celebrating the aspect of rising to the occasion of claiming their rights to freedom of leading, governing, expressing, leading, working the puzzle themselves with their own two hands. It will go much further than that.

The new human will find ways to implement celebration into everyday lives. More as a deliberate act of creation and in a purposeful way, knowing their responsibility in creating more positive energy on the grid. This is a responsibility to all future generation of humans to come. It will be seen as such and efforts will be made in that direction too. At workplaces, all work will become a celebration aspect, rather than work. When this is brought about, there would be more play and more participation and involvement by each and every soul in a workplace, since it is building upon an innate wisdom and joyous participation of humans, rather than a sense of duty and obligation, which is an older, dominating and controlling energy. Do you see that difference in energy?

Humans in relationships will do so, for sake of celebrating love and nothing else. For what else is there to be accomplished or tasked between any two humans? Man and his mate, would be only committed to celebrating their love, in songs, in mating, in joyous co-creating and all other aspects, that have not even been conceptualized yet! New paradigms will emerge, with the central idea of just pure celebration. New traditions and ceremonies may be born of this. Older traditions would no longer serve here, for they were only based in fear and not in love. All love wants to do is to celebrate, is it not?

The governments and leaderships will actively encourage all forms of social and individual participations and events of celebration everywhere let it be sporting to music, dance, festival as it is now, but will move it to everyday work and play also, since only celebration creates positive life nurturing energy of the collective and unleashes a whole new power in which all are enhanced, past all limitations, just by the sheer energy of the crystalline itself.

As it progress more and more, this celebration will be obvious in all earth, plants, animals, seas and the forest and mountains, for they will all drink from the new energies that humans are creating and will respond accordingly. Celebration creates that energy, of all collective into one strong reverberating communion of angels, who can alter, permanently, the very charecterization of how future humans will work and play in a particular area. Is it any wonder to you, that most festivals and rituals of the same nature, continue to propagate themselves in each society, state and countries of the world, through centuries. The children of the children, in a given area, celebrate the same event generation after generation. That is how powerful it is, and imagine what it can do, if we humanity truly recognize it, as the one of the common thread that connects us all as humans, irrespective of our culture and biases.
And so what are you celebrating today? What have you not celebrated or are avoiding to celebrate in your life? It maybe simple, but do you understand now, the significance of just this very simple human behaviour?

A New Paradigm of Cooperation

So as we move into the new energies, we as humanity, both individually and collectively are revisiting a lot of old precepts that we worked through in the old world. This is of course a natural course, for one cannot move ahead in the new energies without altering or completely getting rid of some of the old ideas, for it simply shall not work in the new energies. In addition, we have to bring in new paradigms and tools that would be more in harmony with the new energies, as it only makes sense to do that.

For all of the old world history and whatever that has transpired, it has been a primary objective of each human tribe to have cooperation within themselves and with other tribes, for security. This was the prime objective. The old human, has fought against nature and against one another for eons, merely to have security. That thing which causes fear in the hearts of men, the cold and unforgiving weather, the seasons, the food and water to survive in the face of all this harshness and unpredictability of nature. The old human, survived and secured. Most of all society rules, trade, wars and battles were centered on those two concepts: survival and security.

The new human in the new world and more importantly, the new energies, does not need these two precepts to work by. The world today and the new energies are leaning more towards cohesiveness and correlation which are within the belt of cooperation and not based around security and survival. Cooperation is a wider, a more expansive net, which not only caters to survival as well as security, but goes beyond those, into realms of a practical approach to compassion and creativity. Contrary to what you might think at the moment, cooperation does not have to be against survival and security.  Cooperation requires in integration at all levels and not just food, shelter and basic survival instincts of humans. Ironically, with cultures and belief systems created more of survival and security issues for humans and less cooperation in the old world, when in fact each culture, within itself, gears itself towards an approach that is all out towards cooperation and yet when it came to maintaining the same approach towards the movement of energies between two different tribes, it became translated to territories, states, boundaries, separation, wars and standoffs.

Paradoxically, it is the very same survival and security issues that are once again going to bring about cooperation between cultures and belief systems, in the new energies. Like the knife, the very same thing that killed earlier, is now going to start cutting vegetables. It is merely a shift of what the use of a concept is to a human or a whole group of humans, which will make a difference. For with that necessity of survival and security, humans are now ready to let go of all the standoffs of centuries, battles and scars of old to create the new era of cooperation. Integration of cultures is becoming slowly the norm as humanity from one part of the world, jets off to live and bring up families on the other side of the globe. Until all colors of all tribes are mixed up completely, there would be only a human and no sense of tribe itself left. For after all, it was the very concept of two tribes, which brought about all the differences there was. When there is only one tribe called humanity, there then exists no enemy and nothing to defend.

And as the traffic of the new consciousness moves in that direction, the new energies, will bring about new paradigms, new ideas, as all cooperation enhances creativity in all walks of life. Enhancement would become the new driver, rather than preservation. For the very concept of preservation, is born of insecurity and survival. For the hue of creativity to become brighter, requires all relinquishment of survival. In light of cooperation and enhancement, all survival needs of all are met as a given merely to enhance creativity, which would become all that humanity, the one tribe, exists for. Money and Trade would then be rendered as mere instruments of cooperation and compassion, rather than a tool for survival and security.

The new consciousness enhanced by the new energies on the planet, will “see” this as clearly as daylight. The consensus among masses would be immoderate and immediate. There is no single point of start, no single messiah, and no glorious one government, which can bring about such a paradigm shift, for it involves all tribes, everywhere.  It involves new energies move and shift consciousness itself into a new direction not merely new school of thought which has sprung up in some isolated school of belief or a university somewhere. The new energies are such, and can you feel it moving there already, even as you sit and read this message and watch the news on your morning news?

The Space Of Creation

Humans are born creative. Even as small children, even with the things we assume very mundane and ordinary, a child will take in its hands with the curiosity pristine, and weave and make something unique out of it, or find a new purpose to something that had a totally different one a moment ago. This is our gift. Each of us did that as a child. Our mothers know this very well. As parents, each of you have seen it in your young ones. And so where did we lose this along the way?

Let us give a different look at creation itself. What is really required of it? how it happens indeed. Creation happens in a space. It requires its own space to come into existence. And because creation, would inherently imply, that it is something that has not hitherto been already in existence and is something totally new, it follows that even the space for that creation to happen, must be new. Could it be possible then, that along with each new creation, we even create a new space for it to exist? Could that be the reason why creativity is so addictive? Ask a creative person, does not mater in which field of humanities or sciences or arts they are pouring themselves into. A creative person would enjoy nothing more, than to create. Perhaps because he or she is, for those moments of creation, taps into the creator or god energy itself, creating a new space, for something new to exist and now become a part of the entire existence itself!! what could be more satisfying than that?!

Now creation of space is where it begins then, you might say, since without it, there is nothing new that can happen, since all that is, is all that is, and it already has a space that has been occupied. If this is confusing, let me just say, you cannot put a human being, in the exact space where another is standing, until he moves out of the way and another can occupy it. So what could this creation of space, mean, in context to creation?

To start with, to create the space of creation, there must be an allowance of something new to be. Existence is about being. Movement comes next. And so, there must be an allowance of a beingness to be present. Unless there is the creation of allowance first, there can be no space in which a new concept, idea, thought or energy can exist within or be. For the creation of allowance to happen, there must be the openness of the mind and heart. For allowance, has no boundaries, that is to say, that allowance cannot be held within confined spaces, for that would simply be a hypocrisy of it, and not the truth of it. Allowance, by definition is limitless. And so an open mind and heart is needed for allowance to step in. An open mind and heart, thus allows what comes through, to be, thus creating a space needed for the new to exist. And when this space of allowance is created it becomes open channel, a pathway, for any and all to come in and become. As you can very well see, it also means, that an open mind and heart then, become the true vessels of any human creation.

What then is flowing through, you might ask. What is the new being birthed, through the vessel of the human mind and heart here? Ofcourse it could be anything at all. But the source itself of this creation, comes, not from the human being themselves, as they would like to claim it to be, but from that creative source, from which creation itself has sprung forth. And so you can say that all creation is from god or the prime source, if you will. A human is merely being the channel for it to flow, through their allowance, for a the space of creation to be and exist. Ofcourse, the only source, that can create a new space in an already existing infinite space, is the source of all that is itself. Isn’t that quite simply logical also?

And so the exercise here, for even the human who believes they are not very creative, is to be in allowance of beingness to be present. Without any judgement, without any preconceived notions or ideas about how this or that should be just being present. Is it any wonder to you why creative people need a lot of quiet space and time to be present. They are being present with themselves. Without distractions of any kind other than the basic survival instincts. For they need that space of allowance to step in. In that space they become meditative, a silent presence, a witness to their own being, tapping into something vast and infinite. And since it has no beginning or end, this space of allowance then becomes a channel for yet newer spaces of creation to come into being. Every seed, every new human, every new being that is born, comes out of this space of allowance to be. Even the womb of a mother is a supreme space for the creation of another human being.

Who does this tell you, who you are really? And so as you leave here, go with a little more insight into who you really are and what you can do. Or shall I say, who you can BE?

The Biases of Rational Human

The modern educated human is taught to reason. The encouragement is toward logic, analysis and to constantly use the incisive edge of reasoning. And so let us dive into some of the hidden biases therein and how we make assumptions and move forward throughout our lives, most times never even seeing these biases that have been built in, even within the most rational reasoning there is.

At the outset, let us see one thing that every rational human is totally incapable of analyzing or ever even considering in his scope of review. The human who is totally rational and logical can never ever hope to ponder or dissect the irrational. For the very label irrational and illogical cuts him off from any further consideration. Now this is a very real bias you know. For any reasoning rational mind should always consider all possibilities, within a universe of infinite possibilities, would it not, by the very nature of this universe? There is the first bias. That in itself is a whole discussion, is it not, for it separates everything art, musical, spiritual, metaphysical from the so called mainstream sciences? It puts humanity in a quandary, for it categorically denies one whole existence that we humans have, our spiritual, etheric side, labeling it as irrational, unprovable and unscientific, when in fact, the very rational human who goes about doing that, deep down knows this is not true and is merely riding upon a popular bias.

The second one, would be the bias within an assumption, that mind can know everything there is to know. That there is nothing mind cannot comprehend or the laboratory cannot produce in a repeatable experiment. First of all, the very concept of mind is a controversy even in psychology. The study of mind has been extensive and many minds have studied and documented the workings of the mind. Funny how that works is it not, mind studying the mind. And so even in that itself, the mind is limited by itself, is it not. Which is pretty logical too, if you noticed. If you are standing within a huge sphere, you are limited in your definition of defining the sphere, by the very fact that you can only describe it from within and not how it appears from the outside. Quite the same way with the mind. Doesn’t matter how sharp or intellectual a mind is, it is still limited by the its own scope and boundaries. Now there are some who would argue, that the scope is unlimited and only is ever expanding in its potential. This is how we can discover tomorrow what we could not have possibly thought about today. This is how the progress of humanity is made. That is the scope of a much larger discussion, for I will tell you, that by that very reasoning, I might ask, why could you then not have thought of yesterday, what you will think of tomorrow? You see how that might have a whole new twist of discussion right there? Yes, when the mind is presented with a scope of a new piece of knowledge and wisdom, it now has expanded to encompass that new concept and it grows to meld into it, making it within the universe of the mind now. And yet, there is always that boundary beyond which mind cannot perceive or see. And so this mysterious mind is like a sponge that always is ready to absorb anything fed to it, and yet a moment ago, that very idea was beyond the capacity of the mind to see, reason, understand and assimilate. So the mind therefore, cannot grow by itself. It can only grow to encompass something that is given to it. All knowledge and wisdom, is a source therefore, of something external to the mind itself. Are you getting this? And yet there is this bias within the rational human, that all is possible to be known by the mind, as if mind is the source of it all, which it obviously isnt and this became obvious here just in a paragraph of reasoning itself.

Here is another bias. Mind can understand emotion. How can it? Emotion does not originate in the mind at all. Just as the concept of mind itself has not been understood, other than a plethora of labels and terms (and psychological jargon, if I might add) is all one has today, to understand the concept of mind itself, how can you define the concept of emotion, when it is really not known where it originates, what is its potential and what is its body and scope? Yes, the mind can conceptualize and label emotions, know the implications of emotion, like the heart beating fast, the brain producing chemicals, endorphins, hormonal effects etc, but this is just studying the effects of emotion, not emotion itself. These are two different concepts that we humans live by, and yet, we try to use mind to study emotion. Don’t you find that odd? We should perhaps study emotion with the help of emotion itself, in much the same way we use mind to study the mind, now, would that not be the logical extension of it? And yet, how many schools and universities do we have currently, that would teach emotion with emotion and not with dry words and labels?? How can laughter and tears be studied in a mental university? The very thought of that is absurd isn’t it? In much the same way, as I would propose that let us get emotional and study the mind!! And yet, the bias is, and this ties to our second bias, that there is nothing that mind cannot comprehend. Do you see, the bias there.

And so I shall leave you to ponder these three and I am sure you can come up with many too, but those are at the very basic level of it all, which the rational human has built in themselves. And so what would happen if you even propose this to a proudly rational person today? They will argue with this. They will fight this. You know why? The mind never knows anything beyond it and it is the comfort zone of the mind, to be in the familiar, to be in the known. So don’t bother with that. Simply go about your life, knowing and observing these biases that are assumed, under all that so called rational thinking. The next time anyone asks you to be “reasonable and rational”, smile, know that you know better than that. Be a bit irrational. Be a bit emotional. That too, is you, you know.

The Energy of Doubt

So you have it many times… doubt. I have it too. Each of us have it. And so for these next few moments let us dive into the energy of doubt. Explore doubt. Call doubt to the party and have a dance with it. Or call it for a date and have a chat by the fire. Or however you associate intimate time as!

So when you have a doubt about something, some say it is just my mind chatter and put it aside. But you know as well as I do, that the demon just sleeps and will awaken in time and the doubt comes up again at some other time. So then you go, ok, that did not work very well and pushing aside doubt as some other mean old dog or a demon did not work very well. It still sits there silently and does wake up and cause mischief in my mind, like that naughty kid who sits there silent when told to shut up, but the true nature of the child wakes up in due course and does the thing that is most natural to it, once again. No wonder all the people who suggest its just mind chatter and to ignore it do not go very far, do they?

Others would have you believe, that doubt is lack of faith or belief in something. What? What do I believe or have faith in? And this bunch of people would have you believe in etheric, woowoo, invisible stuff, stuff you cant see. Some would call it God, Almighty etc. And they would call it Trust, faith etc that you need to have. If you go along with this theme, you might get a long laundry list of things to do, words and catch phrases to remember of what god said to do or be like. That could not hurt all that bad, if you had a good memory to begin with. Although it might pinch your pocket when they start asking for memberships, special offers on the sure road to divinity and riches or virgins in heaven!

Enough of belittling a very profound energy that lives with each of us each day, in one form or another. Let me propose something here and leave you to absorb the energy of this point of view.

Doubt is the energy of not being sure. Ofcourse we all know that one. But then, why are you not sure? Because you dont know all the facts, you say? Yes, maybe in a knowledge sort of way. But what if you knew all the answers to begin with and you say ” I doubt that” only because you DO know at some level that you are sure, but you doubt that within you, which is sure of itself!? So observe this within you, next time you catch yourself, even silently in your own mind, saying to yourself “I doubt that”, which means, there is a definite certainty within you about that, and all you mean, when you say “I doubt that” is that you are doubting that energy of certainty which is already there! So, in this premise, all you are doubting is, your own innate sense of certainty, is it not? Now it becomes more deep. So why is it you doubt your own certainty? Is it because you dont want to you to know consciously that you do, indeed have all the answers? If so, why is it that you do not want to be sure, when you in fact do want to be sure in the first place? Doesnt make any sense I hear you say! But you do, and you know you do! Also you might have noticed, that you are here, the creator of doubt, and not the victim of it. For in you, there already was certainty. You created the doubt by saying “I doubt that”. And so, what if you did not create doubt. What would remain then? One of two things I would assume: Either you would say, I know this and go with whatever you know you know to be true…. OR you would be silent and wait for the knowing to appear and present itself with the right answer. But you would not be making the statement ” I doubt that” . Are you with me so far?

Here is another aspect of doubt that you may have perhaps noticed. Doubt is cancerous. And that is to say, the once you go down that path of self denial and refusing to allow what you know to come forth in its clarity, you take it everywhere then. To the park, to your work, your idle mind chatter, your beliefs, your knowing, your knowledge, your relationships, your health, your abundance, your wealth and just about everything in your life! It becomes a fun game to doubt everything! After all, there is no end to self denial, now is there?! What about joy and love? Do you doubt that too. Of course you do! If you doubt everything else, why would this be excluded?

Now let us see an arbitrary you, that did not have doubt. Lets just assume that. So either you are certain or you are waiting for the answer, but you just do not doubt whatever is. What does your world look like then? Everything is certain then. You are certain that you do not have the answer or you are certain that you do. So you are living then in an energy of certainty. Never in the shadows of doubt, but always in the light, do you see? You can hold the energy of waiting for an answer, maybe even all your life, but it is far better than assuming an answer and doubting it all the time, do you see? And what about that little voice in you, you call intuition, that voice which has only answers, eventhough you did not even have questions to begin with!? Where does that come from? Intuition never seems to be doubtful at all. About anything, have you noticed?

Doubt, is the energy of mind, asking you to never truly accept or be or know anything. Mind will never ever allow you peace and quiet. Even if you think you have the right answer today, this hour, you will wake up tomorrow, one week or one year or one decade from now and ask yourself “could that be really true?” and it will always be that way, for mind is that way. Look at it this way, if mind gave you certainty and answers, pretty soon there would be no, what you call, Analysis, Reasoning, Logic and so on, for all the answers are done. It would be a full stop, not a comma! And that in itself would mean redundancy or obsolescence of mind itself would it not? Now why would the mind want the death of itself? No reason to be suicidal now is there?! So, my dear human being, the next time you have doubt, know that it is only your mind playing tricks on you and is a phantom. You know the answers to everything. And if you are doubting that right now, that is the way it should be, for then I know, your mind is working perfectly as it should.
But then why would you choose doubt over joy? For joy is certainty. Doubt certainly cannot be joyful, now can it? So why dont you start choosing certainty. Just for the fun of it. For a whole day. Just be certain. At all costs. Do only certain things. Not Doubt things. And watch how much struggle mind puts you through. Only then you will truly notice, how much your mind has its muscle over you.
