As is usual when writing such a thing, I have re-read this many times.
It is not flowing the way these things usually do.
I do not seem to be fully in tune with the subject. So it is not so much
So in accordance with suggestions made below, I am not continuing
adjusting it, I am sending it just as it is. I am sure there is enough in
there to be useful - just may have to dig a bit deeper for the full
Wishing lots of carefree fun in your living...
I have been asked, many times, to write about his subject - again.
(If you want more than is written here, check with Mia:
and there maybe something on: http://snipr.com/paullowe
As usual, the subject is vast, and in order to even get a glimpse of what
is beyond the conditioning with which your mind has been programmed, you
will need to disconnect from what you think you do and do not know - about
In order to survive in this difficult and potentially dangerous dimension,
Planet Earth, we need to have the services of a facility that does not get
too distracted. If we had to stay fully conscious in order to remember to breath, pump
our heart, and digest our food, we would probably not live very long.
So we have a mind. The job of the mind is to continually check what is and
is not safe. In order to do this it stores vast amounts of information -
based on past events - experienced and well as just heard of.
In order for the mind to do its job, it thinks it needs to be dominant -
in each and every moment. And as the mind can only access the past, what
we call ‘you’ is never here - in this very moment.
In order to feel safe and accepted/admired/useful/worthy, the mind feels
we need to ‘have a purpose in life. ’This is basically nonsense.
Let’s see if we can explain.
We actually don’t need a purpose/vocation.
If the mind would mind its own business - basic survival, you would
realise that having been born, all you need to do is live.
Maximum potential is another thing. More later.
Here is one major complication - interference.
From even before you were born you were being influenced - by people who
are not happy and fulfilled.
Isn’t that strange to you? - People who are not happy and fulfilled -
telling you how to be! Do they really want you to be as unhappy as they are!
One of the latest things emerging quite strongly on the web at the moment
is how our lives are programmed and manipulated by what we are taught in
our education systems. If you check it out you will see there are actual
old ‘official’ documents stating that students should not be educated
beyond a certain level - otherwise their creativity will stay intact, and
they will not want to be slaves to menial jobs.
So we are educated not to bring out our natural creativity, but to
cripple our natural abilities.
Some scientists are telling us that savants do not have something we do
not have, it is that they do not have something we do have - a developed
restricting part of the mind.
Our potential is unlimited. “Thou Art That.”
Where we restrict ourselves is trying to access our potential through the
layers of restricting conditioning with which we have been indoctrinated.
The traditional Eastern way through this restriction is through meditation.
Takes too long. The most effective way is being present in each moment.
If you are present in each moment you will get to see/realise your
programmed restrictions. So just disconnect from what you have been told
is and is not possible, and look for yourself. Simple.
Recent studies have shown that the difference between survival and death
in extreme situations has not to do with experience, but attitude.
People who give up die easily; people who want to live do so dispute
conditions that seem impossible.
A classic example is of that man flying over the Canadian Rockies.
His plane crashed. In just his normal clothing he trudged, non-stop, for
seven days and nights without food or water, until he came to a road.
If he had stopped the cold would have put him to sleep and he would have
died. I expect there are many such examples available on the web.
Anything is possible. Anything. If you want it enough.
Your meaning in life? Maybe there isn’t one. No meaning. No point.
You are as free as you will let yourself be. Then what is life for? -
Being present, in each moment, to the maximum potential of that very
moment. Out of that presence will flow - you.
Vocation is an illusion - held out in front of you - by ‘them.’
I am not going into the details. So simply -
do in each moment, let happen, what is fulfilling and a joy for you.
Want? - to stay in bed/garden/dance/sing/... anything that is not ‘work.’
Work is anything you are not enjoying. If you doing something that is not
a joy for you - what, on earth, are you doing to yourself!
You are here for such a short time! (Just seems a lot longer when you are
not dong what you are enjoying.)
Don’t listen to those voices of people who are not in their joy of living.
And don’t listen to me. Dare - to listen to yourself! What is a joy for
A very happy joying to you…
