The Translucent Revolution, Arjuna Ardagh

> The word belief originates from the Old English word leof which means, \”to hold dear\”. The Encarta World English Dictionary defines it as \”acceptance by the mind that something is true or real often underpinned by an emotional or spiritual sense of certainly\”. But we only develop beliefs about certain things…
> In other words we hold beliefs about things that we don’t know about from direct experience. Why? Because we are unwilling to stay in not knowing…
> Sometimes people ask \”do you believe in God\”? But what difference does a mental conclusion make? Either we feel God all around us and within us and our heart is open to the Great Spirit creating and connecting all things or we don’t. Believing in what we do not feel creates a plastic, mental world with no nourishment or depth to it…
> Only when we’re willing to be both good and not good and everything in between does our feeling of being separate relax and the goodness of all life begin to flow through us…
> As we will discover, the way to dissolve a belief is to stop resisting both sides of the polarity. When the internal fighting stops there is no longer any need for belief…
> Byron Katie is masterful at unraveling the mind:
As long as we’re at war with our own mind we are at war with the world and with the whole human race. Because as the long as we want to get rid of our thoughts, anyone we meet is likely to become an enemy. There is only one mind, and people are going to tell us what we haven’t dealt with yet in our own thinking. \”you’re fat. you’re stupid. you’re not good enough.\” If you are an enemy to your own mind other people have to become enemies too sooner or later. Until you understand, until you can love the thoughts that appear in your mind, then you can’t love the rest of us. You work with the projector – the mind – not the projected world. I can’t really love you until I question the mind that thinks its sees you outside itself ….
> As soon as we are able to recognize thought as a passing event, we become unglued from it. We can then question its reliability. However translucent we may have become, this process of letting go of a personal reference point always feels like a small death, but it always brings with it a rebirth. Thought and action can occur in completely new ways, as direct  and innocent responses to the present moment, unclouded by the undigested past…
> Knowing this, as the core of translucent practice, we learn to relax the first impulse to react. We relax and we wait. We relax into not knowing. We relax into feeling the disturbance in the body. We relax into feeling the environment as if it were an extension of our own body. We soften into the acceptance of the unreliable nature of the mind, and we surrender…
> Allow yourself to stay in the middle of the mental tension with all its conflicting points view, and feel them all. Give yourself permission to not know; feel the inevitable reality that you actually don’t yet know what to do or say stay with all that and wait, then see what happens. Relax back from the whole thought process, and just wait for the current flowing through all of life to flow through you too.

Everything Working Out in the End

Every day is a new day.  Every second is a new life; a new you. Don’t beat yourself up over the past.  Don’t dwell on how things didn’t work or “aren’t working.”
Stay in the present and in every second, with each breath, and manifest the life you truly desire.  Manifest how you want (expect) and be in that.  Things go awry but things also work out in the end.  It is the staying “in the awry” space that drags out that energy.  Get in the new space of “everything working out in the end.”
We do not know what it is all about, what lessons we are suppose to learn from our experience, until we experience them.  Having an idea of our lessons can help speed up the process.  Being open and willing to work on our lessons helps us get to the “everything working out” stage faster.  Be in your heart; stay in your loving heart through all things and the lessons become blessings and all is right with the world.
You are doing a great job.  It is not easy here on planet earth.  You are doing fine.  You are doing fine.  Stay open to all life has to offer.  Do not let the weight of the world create fear in your body, mind and spirit.  Stay in “at onement “and know you are being cared for and protected.  Instill that in your being:  I am being cared for and protected.  I am in a protective love bubble provided for me by the universal divine forces.  I am at one; I am protected; I am in love.  Allow the love space and your open heart to lead you through your day:  one day at a time, one hour at a time, one second at a time.  Always breathing, always grounding, always in gratitude and always in love.  Breathe. Breathe.
All is well in the world and you are doing a great job.

Clarity, Maureen Moss


2007 Maureen Moss, Executive Producer of The World Puja Network

Gaining clarity prior to any action taken is a skill that rarely has been taught or even talked about in its depth and importance.

Clarity is not intention and it\’s not choice. It stands as a powerful attribute of its own, though intersects with both intention and choice. Lack of clarity is a sign of lack of connection to our souls, Higher Self, Pure Divine Guidance or even pure patience. Clarity is a power that we must claim, immediately.

Clarity when proactively attained (steps to follow) is one of the most vital ways to shift the paradigm of lower human nature that otherwise works through the emotional and mental body against us, rather than for us.

Rushing to decisions without first gaining clarity in regard to the decision has far reaching consequences. Those consequences carry a powerful negative momentum and the emotional and mental body utilizes those consequences to embellish the illusion that we are already living in. No doubt if any of us look back upon our lives we will see how operating without clarity has weakened us in various ways.

It’s important to be aware of this fact. We are living on a Planet with a mass consciousness whose every thought vibrates out into our fields of energy every single second of every single day, often attaching themselves to us and filtering into our own personal thought systems. That, in part, is why we are often confused and thrown out of clarity.

Imagine thousands and thousands of thoughts daily being hurled at you through the ethers and often disguising themselves as if they were your own. They are not. That is why, in great part, we are a Planet and a species in chaos not clarity and we have to DO something about it, rather than keep being informed about it.

It’s vital to understand this so we are moved into action, by harnessing our own thoughts through clarity in any given situation by our souls, or our Higher Selves, or PURE Divine Guidance; not from mass consciousness, nor through what I call \”Our Agree With Me Club.\” (Those are our friends that love us so much they just want to agree with our perspectives.) That’s a lovely gesture but not powerful inner clarity.

Please know I am not saying that we can’t get various vantage points and points of perspective from others, because we can. However when it comes to personal clarity about your life, only your purest heart, soul and Higher Self have your answers. It is our job to take the time to intentionally, without ANY distractions set up an environment for ourselves to get clear in.

The Pathway to Clarity
First…Create a quiet and sacred place for yourself without any form of distraction whatsoever. Some people create sacred space in their gardens, their living rooms, by a lake, in the mountains. Just place yourself where your surroundings are visually sacred and spiritually calming. Wherever you are, please have a paper and pen near you.

Second… Always begin by breathing. Your breath is your greatest ally and we all must learn to Master its full potential to derive the full benefits. Breathe deeply and consciously in and out, in and out for as long as you must to calm your nervous system and to move your focus in the opposite direction of your mind into the portal of your heart.

Use whatever tools you need to get you there; invocations, mantras, a crystal on your heart chakra sound healing music etc. Please don\’t stop one second to soon. You will know when to stop when your mind quiets down and you feel your entire energy field shift into a calm and even one. Some of you will actually see a soothing color surround you and some may actually get the scent of fresh air. (The breath is truly amazing.)

Third… identify specifically what you are in need of clarity about. I can\’t tell you enough how important it is for you to be specific. It must be specifically about you, not someone else. This pathway is not for you to gain someone else\’s clarity, it is for your clarity whether it involves another or not. Write down whatever you desire to be clear about (or have clarity in regard to) as well as speaking it out loud to the outermost reaches of the Universe and speaking it softly, internally, to take up residency inside of your body.

Fourth… remember you will need patience, stillness of thoughts, and control of your breath to allow the request to be sent forth, sent in, heard and responded to. Make a sacred covenant with yourself that any of the above actions that are required of you to gain clarity over confusion you will attend to vigilantly in order to birth the clarity through you.
The reason for this promise is that you may not get immediate clarity and your mind will be prompted to run to others for answers. You may have to re-visit this process a few times (or not). This is a promise of integrity to your heart and soul, giving no room for the impatience of the mind and ego to take over.

And Fifth…detach from the outcome. In this case you are asking for clarity not information for your mind and ego to barter with. Once received, don\’t touch it with a thought. Lead with your heart, lead with the love for yourself and proceed from there. Clarity is a beacon of Light and one of the most powerful tools a human can have at his/her disposal. Particularly now.
