A very short podcast laying out the direction we will be going.  We will be experiencing our true Selves as well as our "false" personalities.  Once we are in touch with our true Being and dissolve the false, we will begin to flow into a more integrated personality that better serves us.

Before talking deeply about and experiencing awakening let's look at how we experience our selves.  Let's look at what we are not so we can begin to clear out the clutter to better see and appreciate who we really we are.

Our Being is always intensely happy.  But we don't always feel powerfully happy and Calm.  Why....and can meditation help dissolve what is blocking us and feeling so bad?  How?  Most are meditating with the wrong information so no longer continue.  We start with some basics before we actually begin our awakening meditation next.  Let's start right...even if we are just scratching the surface.

Practicing the Awakening meditation together again.  This time a little longer.  Continued instruction....just to make sure before we go deeper.  We talked some about not leaving our center as the radiance that we are.  From there we simply let everything be and experience it as it is.  Acceptance really.  As we stay in Awareness everything else burns away until all there is is radiant awareness and connection to all around.  Onene...

Listen to your self and have your own direct experience...question everyone and thing.  Believe only if you don't really know.  In this podcast we are going to begin to look more deeply at our Being and what motivates our thoughts.  Hurt, fear, anger which are made of tension.  We are stopping long enough to look for ourselves.  We are suffering....how are we making our own suffering?  What do we do.  To see is to be free.  Thi...

Following up on the last Podcast.  Our psychological thoughts are endlessly running because they are fueled by the hurt, fear, and anger underlying them.  The hurt fear and anger is launched because we have betrayed ourselves.  We have become separated from our heart and that shows up as tension and blocks.  We have accepted a notion or our selves that is not true....we have actually been hypnotized to believe other than what we ar...

Direct experience dissolves beliefs yes.  But often we resort to counteractive positivity or counteractive actions to distract, relax, relieve, suppress, or repress  symptoms.  We overlay something on the problem rather than dissolve the problem to start with.  Meditation and spiritual practices can be this way.

We explore the basic principle behind successful therapies and, more importantly, awakening meditation as found in Coherence Therapy.  When we stay as who we are, Being, we can let everything else burn away leaving just Us.  That's awakening and Happiness.  Pure Being is pure Happiness and Love.

We connect to who we are.  How is Awareness (Being) experienced in clarity?  Like a rainbow.  One end stretches beyond creation in what might be called empty/fullness.  As you come into creation there is an explosion of Light then sound, then bliss, joy, love, happiness and peace.  This is what is aware of everything else in meditation.  Thoughts and emotions are just structures we have created. They don't think or feel and onc...

An exploration on both the creative and blocking aspects of thoughts.  The utility of using them when they are helpful and letting them go with they are not.  How thoughts and emotions work and what they do.

The personality is not us but thoughts and emotions that we have created to get what we think we do not have.  Because we are separated from our Being we no longer fully experience true Love, Peace, and Happiness. Though we get glimpses from time to time.  In order to try to regain Love, Peace, and Happiness we form a getting machine called personality made of tools called thoughts and emotions.  There are only 9 ways to form a per...

Our Personality formed as a getting machine when we mistakenly thought we had been separated from our Self.  As we awaken, the hypnotic spell of our unawakened Personality gives way to the truth of our Being.  Because we now experience ourselves as Love, Peace, and Happiness we are free from the grip of an unawakened personality. That unawakened personality had enslaved us with the misperception that only it could get us love peace...

Let's pause for a moment and pull together what we have covered thus far.  So many meditate for years without much progress.  Usually this is because they do not have a clear vision of what they are doing and how to do it.  Clear seeing is very important.  Ramana used to say that before you figure "your" life out, know who "You" are.  Stopping to let everything settle out into clarity is called mediation.  Clear...

Exploring the importance of letting go in ways that work vs counterproductive letting go. We are looking at how to dissolve inner thought and emotional structures in this and the podcast that follow. Later, we will look at how to integrate our psychology with our Being. These podcasts are never a substitute for psychotherapy. Psychotherapy can be important  and is often  overlooked in eastern thought. We will discuss this then late...

We discuss a combination of things that are or will happen in your awakening at this stage in our podcasts.  We will explore most parts of this combination much more deeply in future podcasts but are exploring the broad strokes now in this podcast.  
We are radiantly One with All.  It is only connection.  No you or me...only connection....Oneness.  Radiant Love, Peace, and Joy.  In our path to this normal state of connection or "...

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
