A beautiful feeling can’t exist without a beautiful experience. The two go hand in hand. That’s why feelings are so important. You can’t have a miserable experience and be happy…

One thing I’m really coming to see more and more is the interconnectedness of all minds. I feel as though there are impulses that come through the ether and enter our minds while we’re open and willing to listen.

I’m seeing this more and more often with my girlfriend. We both feel inspired to do exactly the same thing at the same time. We both randomly hum the same tune at the same time. It’s as if we’re totally synchronized. As if life is just a river and the waves carry us both together.

When I am aware, I notice…

Throughout most of my journey through spirituality, I was under the impression that negative thoughts create negative circumstances. But they don’t.

Allow me to elaborate…

You can spend a thousand years in a negative vibration. All it means for the duration of that time you are seeing the negative.

The moment you switch into a positive state of mind, you don’t even have to wait for “circumstances” to change. You automatically, instantly, see positive all around you, like flipping between two radio stations, only you’re seeing a new reality.

While we believe in two worlds, the inside, and the outside…

As someone who used to suffer from crippling jealousy, I’ll share with you what I’ve learned that has virtually completely freed me of jealousy.

I used to think my mind worked like a camera. I was under the impression that I would observe a situation or circumstance, and that the circumstance would cause me pain or jealousy. Because of this, I often felt like a victim of what was happening as a circumstance. My emotions were very much dependent even on the smallest things like my girlfriend looking at another guy. …

When I first began to explore the notion that thought is not only perceptive, but creative, there was a lot of doubt in my mind.

I remember at one point I was driving to my plumbing job in the morning. I was trying to think positive, and I felt a negative thought intrude.

I just said to myself, “this whole thought creating reality thing is so fucking stupid, fuck it.” And so I decided to feed my negative thoughts like no tomorrow — as if they were an annoying child begging for attention.

“Today’s just going to be a shitty…

I used to think that freedom was something attained when I wasn’t limited by circumstances. It certainly made sense to me that a rich person was freer than a homeless person.

It also made sense to me to feel insecure when there wasn’t much money in the bank. I considered that normal and pragmatic. I actually believed it was a good thing to be insecure about money because it let me know it was time to figure out how to make more.

Naturally from this line of thinking, I put a lot of energy into whatever seemed to be limiting…

One of the most profound spiritual experiences that I ever had happened was when I was 17. It was as if the world had slipped away from my awareness, like a tight shoe. Like a veil had been pulled away before my eyes. All the meaning I made of the world had disappeared completely. Everything. Just for a moment, I saw without thought.

I remember yelling out, laughing hysterically, “it’s inside-out!”

I saw that all of my experience of life as I knew it was like a cosmic rorschach inkblot. …

Have you ever touched a hot stove? I haven’t, personally. But a lot of people I know have. When I’ve inquired into the experience they’ve reported to me that when they touched the hot stove, it was instinctual to take their hand away from it.

That seems like a normal reaction by my understanding. I believe it would actually be kind of silly to keep your hand pressed on the stove, especially because you know it’s what’s causing the pain.

After countless hours of research, gathered from different data sources, I’ve finally created a formula that can give us insight…
