Soulbyte for Monday April 16, 2018

Let go of old ideas of the self and the world. Embrace your fullness, your human potential, which is limited only by the limiting thoughts conjured up by your mind. That which can be expansive and all-encompassing can also be small and limiting. And yet your spirit takes you on journeys every night that the mind cannot fathom. Let your dreaming self show you your fuller human potential. Discover your true self and the possibilities that consciousness without restriction make possible. Embrace your fullness. Dream on.

Chuck’s Place: Spiritual Instinct

Spent some time in the Deep South. Couldn’t help but be impressed by the preponderance of churches, congregations, assemblies, and conversations that ended in “bless you.”

Driving along, taking it all in, we were 30 miles from our next adventure, a week long immersion in out-of-body experience, for us the ultimate spiritual experience.

Something in the human being cries out for spiritual experience. On this one I’m quite certain Freud had it wrong. Spirituality is more than just a by-product, a sublimation of frustrated sexuality. We are spirit as well as animal beings. We are more than our physical bodies!

We are indeed beings whose animal self will die. Like some of the Shamans of Ancient Mexico accomplished, our species will find ways to extend our animal life for perhaps hundreds or even thousands of years, but eventually it will end.

Of course we covet life in the body. Why else would we find ourselves on this planet, land of opportunity? And that opportunity is the completion of a dream; beginning, middle, and end. Beyond that is more and more dreams, adventures without end. The great challenge is to complete the current dream and leap forward with awareness.

Were we but animals we would follow nature’s program as animals show us to do in their very orderly preparation for death. But our spirit self becomes so attached to the peoples and things of this world that it struggles mercilessly not to let go of this amazing life in time and space, to allow our dreams to unfold in new ways.

We are the active side of God, we are the seeds of possibility, living, feeling, failing, succeeding, developing and sensing in new ways the realization of infinite possibilities. All those possibilities are equal; success is as real a dream as failure, no judgment.

Our spiritual instinct gets caught in attachment to the physical. Our challenge in this life is to open up to our full spiritual nature. We are soul beings who travel endlessly in infinity, exploring love in all its possibilities. To reach this experience we must get beyond the veil of love existing only in the form of physical attachment in this life.

We are prompted by our spirit throughout our lives to awaken to this fuller truth, and this is the greatest challenge in this life. Pain and death are part of the loving path. They must be experienced, they must be mastered before the veil fully lifts.

Along the way are experiences of life and love beyond the body. It happens every night in dreaming. Hold the intent gently to explore that realm with consciousness as you go off to sleep. Repeat it every night. Eventually the door will open.

And then you won’t need to believe, you will know.

Sweet dreams,

Chuck

Make today count, because it really does. Today matters too. Today is the day you have been waiting for, the next step on your spiritual/human journey to wholeness, the day that will carry you forward in the direction of your desires. Embrace yourself and your journey through life. Find your two feet firmly on the ground and take the next step. Today really does matter. And keep positivity in your mind, in your heart, and on your tongue, for you really matter too.

Soulbyte for Wednesday March 14, 2018

Set limits and stay below them. Set goals and go beyond them. Feed your body less. Give your soul more. Starve your worry and your fear. Nurture your creativity and your spirituality. In this manner find a new balance within and without, a new calmness where body, mind, and spirit are adjusted to each other in a new way, letting that which is most important lead the way. Leave the excesses of the world behind as you turn inward now to the world of your inner self. As you give the outer world a rest, your body, your mind, and your spirit will thank you and your heart will be at peace. Soon you will notice that the world outside of you has adjusted and achieved a new balance too. As within, so without.

Soulbyte for Monday March 12, 2018

At all times remain aware of yourself as body and soul, as physical and spiritual, as more than just what you see and feel, for there is another part of yourself, your spirit, your ether. This is the part of you that knows everything and that knows everything is possible, for it lives in the realm of all possibility. Embrace this spiritual self and get to know it. Even as you attempt to perfect your physical self find this spiritual self perfect as it is. This is the real you who does not judge but only wants you to be happy in its company. It is with you at all times, ready to receive you just as you are. Are you ready?
