The power of Presence is Freedom.
This concept cannot be stressed enough, so let us now explore the full scope of freedom found in the Present Moment.
A calm mind is a steady mind that is “seated” in perfect Awareness. Established inside Awareness, you as the Observer, are always clear on your intentions, which form the foundation for your thoughts, actions and emotions.
Thoughts, actions and emotions are a triadic “flow” of your essence and self-expression. Thoughts and emotions affect the quantum world, actions affect the physical world.
When these three aspects of self-expression (co-creation) are aligned with your highest potentiality, you are automatically established in the first two Quantum Laws:
The Law of Divine Oneness
The Law of Cause and Effect
Being fully present, allows you to constantly be aware of your intentions for all thoughts, actions and emotions. Learning to only take action and expressing yourself from a Higher state of mind raises you above the storms and turbulence belonging to the conditions of a constantly changing, three-dimensional, physical world. Training your mind to remain steady, keeps you in a state of inner peace no matter what the outside world presents to you. Your Higher Self remains unchanged, not harmed, or bothered in any way.
This way of living offers you complete Freedom, Absolute Peace, and firmly aligns you with positive aspects belonging to the Law of Cause and Effect.
The practice of remaining Aware is often difficult at first, because Rational Mind loves to solve problems. Problems give Rational Mind a sense of Purpose. This of course feeds Ego, and you will never be Free.
THE PRACTICE FOR OVERCOMING THE CONDITIONS OF THE MIND IS DEVOTION.
Use the practice of Devotion to overcome habits of the mind that bind you to fear, doubt, anger, and the desire to gossip, or discuss problems. Feeding these conditions of the mind, binds you to the limitations they are born from. You will never rise above them. Feeding these habits of the mind keeps your mental patterns on a merry-go-round.
Yes, you will have days in which Rational Mind allows you to enjoy “the Good Life,” but that experience will always be short lived.
To clear the clutter of the mind, you must learn to Observe your thoughts and emotions and fully understand the INTENTION of them prior to taking any action.
Analyzing each thought and emotion will certainly become a tedious task…therefore; simply get into the habit of devoting each and every action you take to God. (or your Higher Self, or to the Highest Good)
In short… allow every action you take to be a Prayer to God.
Engage with yourself in this way, every day, all day… and soon you will come to KNOW a new level of Bliss.
In Peace we go forward ~ Melinda
