Focusing is a body-oriented process of self-discovery, which begins with simply noticing how we feel in our body and getting a “felt sense” of our present-moment experience. Getting a “felt sense” is the key element of focusing, because gives rise to deeper insights than thinking alone can provide.
Self inquiry is a relaxing and sinking of awareness through deeper and deeper layers of ourself until we arrive at our essential being or true nature. It takes us beyond what we already know, to discover new aspects of ourself and reality that are beyond our imagination.
Our soul has an in-built coping mechanism to repress the overwhelm, so that we can carry on with our lives. A piece of our soul withdraws from the distressing experience, carrying the distress away to a place deep within us (or in extreme circumstances, outside of our body) where it can no longer overwhelm us.
If we don’t consciously and fully experience our physical, emotional and mental responses to life (as they occur in the present moment), our resistance causes them to become stuck, until such time as we are willing to consciously and fully experience them.
The soul is like a seedling – it requires conscious engagement with Life to grow and to blossom, but most people’s relationships with Life are semi-conscious. If we don’t consciously engage with Life we will make very little progress and remain passive victims of Life’s circumstances.
Conscious awareness is commonly referred to as mindfulness, but it isn’t primarily about the Mind – it is about Awareness. Our soul’s awareness of the mind, heart and body. It gives us the power to notice our thoughts, emotions and behaviours without identifying with them or defining ourselves by them.
We have to discover “who we are not” before we can truly discover “who we are”. We have to exhaust all the external avenues for finding peace, happiness and contentment before we seriously consider looking within. In the end, it is usually our yearning to be free from suffering that prompts us to embark on the inner search.
Our authentic happiness is blocked by our (false) belief that life is not how it should be; i.e. how we want it to be. This unfulfilled false belief gives rise to negative emotions – the negative emotions make us feel uncomfortable – the ego equates the discomfort with unhappiness – so the ego tries to alleviate the discomfort by seeking happiness elsewhere.
The one thing that we are all seeking in life is happiness. We might say that we are seeking fame, fortune, success, sex, excitement, adventure or spirituality, but all of these things are just strategies to find lasting happiness. None of these things actually make us happy; it is the value we put on them that makes us feel happy or not.
A Human Being = Self + Soul + Personality (mind, heart & body). Our Self (divine spark) is the transpersonal element of our being; our mind, heart & body are the personal elements; and our soul (or causal body) is the field of experiential awareness and unique blend of “essential qualities” that integrates them all into a Human Being.
Unless we are enlightened or self-realised, we we have lost touch with ‘who we truly are’, and we live from a mentally-created false self or ego-self. Our belief that we are our ego self makes us feel separate and insecure – cut off from the unity and oneness.
Holistic Wellbeing is about bringing every aspect of your ‘being’ back into equilibrium and restoring balance to every area of your life – physical, energetic, social, emotional, expressive, mental and spiritual.
The biggest false belief that we hold onto is that we are our ego-self, but we also have a primary belief that shapes our fundamental approach to life, and a collection of core beliefs that influence our different strategies for life. Discovering these false beliefs is the key to liberating ourselves from the ego’s narcissistic, controlling and fear-based strategies.
When our experience is uncomfortable or painful, our usual strategy is to try to push it away, resist it, reject it, or numb it with something like alcohol, drugs or over-eating. Our avoidance strategies may bring a temporary sense of relief, but avoiding the underlying issue actually increases and prolongs our suffering.
Whenever we want something, we generally start suffering. We tell ourselves “I will be happy when I get what I want”. We are basically telling ourselves that we cannot be happy or contented until we get what we want. We believe that getting what we want is the only way we can end the discomfort of wanting, and if we believe that, that is what we will experience.
Emotions are the most polarised aspect of our being; i.e. they carry the most charge. So the more emotion we experience the more difficult it is to keep things in perspective and remain objective. The more emotion that accompanies an experience the more we identify with it and the more we take it personally.
In the 1920s, there was a great renaissance in physics, when relativity and quantum mechanics were first discovered. The 2020s will see another great shift as materialism and determinism are purged from the mainstream scientific mindset, which will allow physics to evolve into metaphysics.
The physical “reality” that we see is a simplified graphical representation of the underlying informational reality. So we aren’t actually perceiving an objective reality – we are rendering (or manifesting) reality on-the-fly, as we experience it. Also, this new model of reality seems to scientifically prove the existence of universal consciousness (or God).
If space-time reality was fundamental and objective, the speed of light would be relative to the objective background of space, but it isn’t. The speed of light is relative to the observer, which means reality is subjective and the observer’s consciousness is more fundamental than space-time reality.
We all assume that we are observing an objective reality, but we are actually observing our own subjective version of reality. For a century, quantum mechanics has been trying to wake us up to the truth that reality isn’t objectively real, but very few were willing to see it.
The physical universe that we observe and experience is just a very narrow band of the totality of reality. The universe is a multidimensional totality that spans at least seven orders or “planes” of reality, all of which are largely imperceptible to us, except for the physical.
Physical reality is a highly-immersive projection from a higher-dimensional “implicate” order of reality, which emerges through a holistic network of quantum-sized toroidal pixels, all spinning and pulsating to quantum time. So our so-called “reality” is actually more virtual reality than actual reality!
The Planck length and Planck time are literally the end of our space-time reality, because space and time (as we know them) don’t exist beyond these physical limits. So what does exist beyond these ultra-small scales of reality? An intangible “implicate order” of reality that is energetic and informational, just like computer code.
There is a general consensus in physics that the rotation of galaxies can only be explained by the presence of highly elusive “dark matter”. This article proposes that galactic rotation is dynamically driven by the geometry of space-time which, in the case of most galaxies, is shaped like a dual-torus.
Most scientists believe that space is ‘flat’, unless it is being ‘curved’ by the presence of matter (which results in gravity). This article proposes that the universe only appears to be expanding because space-time dynamically flows with the geometry of a torus.
