How Your Thoughts Become Your Destiny


“Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” – Unknown

The preceding quote has been attributed to many people: the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, the transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson, the Buddha, and even a supermarket magnate named Frank Outlaw, among others. But who actually wrote the quote isn’t nearly as important as it having been writ. In this article we will break down this curious quote by tracing the seed of Thought to the flower of Destiny, and see what we can learn along the way.

Watch your thoughts, they become words

“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” –George Orwell

Living in Awareness: The Art of Perfect Action

“Let whatever is happening happen… laugh, shout, scream, jump, shake-whatever you feel to do, do it!”-Osho

To the person living in and from their own awareness, all action is perfect. To some, the concept of perfect action sounds like a lofty goal. The image of a person completely at peace, quiet, humble, never raising their voice, never getting sad or frustrated may come to mind. After all, “perfect” must mean all things good right?

Good mood, good speech, good temperament, good deeds, this all sounds like what it means to take “perfect action”. Well, not exactly. If we replace the word perfect with the words “spontaneous” or “natural”, we see that when we behave in perfect action, it doesn’t necessarily have to mean good (or what our ego has deemed as ‘good’).

Spontaneous action suggests that all action that arises in any given moment is perfect action. For a person operating from their true self or inner awareness, there is no need for the mind to get involved in every single decision. Without the inner critic aka our ego getting in the way, holding us to a certain code of conduct based on such things as manners, religious beliefs, ‘acceptable’ behavior, or past conditioning, all action that arises is completely natural and therefore perfect.

30 Minute Yoga & Meditation to Balance the Root Chakra


“May be you are searching in the branches, for what appears only in the roots” – Rumi

The most instinctual of all chakras, the root chakra or Muladhara is your survival center. It is the foundation of our existence, power house, keeper of past memories and the controller of life force. Your fight-or-flight response is initiated from this chakra.

Muladhara Chakra is associated with the element earth, representing physical and emotional grounding. The biggest malady we face is the uprooted, egocentric attitude in life, and the primary cause for this is an unbalanced ‘root chakra’.

If you are feeling depressed, insecure, self-centered, violent, constipated, pain in lower back and exhausted, then it shows that your root chakra is out of balance. A balanced root chakra is necessary to feel self-confident, more grounded, centered and calm.

The Mind and it’s Incessant Need to “Become” Something


“As long as ego runs your life there are two ways of being unhappy, not getting what you want and getting what you want.” -Eckhart Tolle

How much time do we spend trying or wishing to be something that we are not? Probably a lot more than you realize. In fact, without this belief that there is a goal to be achieved, a state of being that is better than the one we are in now, or an alleged time or place that will bring us more happiness than the present moment will, our ego-mind barely has a leg to stand on. The incessant need to “become” something keeps our ego valid.

Think about it. You wake up in the morning, your mind is telling you are still tired, it wants to become the person who is still laying in bed. You’re taking a shower, you get hungry, it wants to become the person who is eating something. You’re at work, all you want to do is get off, you are preoccupied with becoming the person who is done with work for the day. You are irritated by a co-worker, you don’t like having such judgmental thoughts so you try to become the person who is not angry. You get the point.

Five Unconventional Ways to Trigger the Heart Chakra


The heart chakra is the central chakra, right smack in the middle of the phenomenal kundalini process. It is the pivot of the human soul, the spiritual hinge of the human mind. In Buddhist circles it is known as heartmind, as it connects the higher and lower aspects of the human condition.

It’s where Shiva (the divine masculine) and Shakti (the divine feminine) are eternally dancing, yin-yang-happy with their moving in and out of being and not-being, mind and no-mind, attachment and detachment, life and death, finitude and infinity. There are infinite lessons hidden within such dancing, most of which are difficult to tap into. For the sake of uncanny exploration, let’s dive into five unconventional ways to trigger the heart chakra.

1) Let your heart break over and over again

Reincarnation and the Soul’s True Purpose: Part 2

“Yes, but negative is an illusion. Negative and positive are both construction material. Negative is evolutionary catalyst.” ~ Dolores Cannon, A Message from the Subconscious. (The Three Waves of Volunteers and the New Earth)

Once we have embraced the idea of continuing on and transcended the idea of the fixed self, we can begin to apprehend the cycles of karma in our lives and how they may be holding us back from our greater purpose.

Without experiencing a past life regression where the subconscious, soul or guardian energies communicate directly to us through our own mouths what we should be focusing on is not necessarily a bad thing; if we are connected to our inner voice or are able to invite these answers in, then they will inevitably find us. Like the cycles of karma we are ‘unconsciously’ experiencing, we can chose to attract the solution to them, and probably secretly know this information already.

Reincarnation and the Soul’s Journey: Part 1

“When we have completed all the journeys and adventures through our variety of lives we are supposed to return to the creator with our accumulation of knowledge. It is then absorbed. In this way we are considered cells in the body of God.” ~ Dolores Cannon

Whether we are comfortable with the idea of reincarnation or not, there will be certain patterns and reoccurrences in our lives that are impossible to ignore. Why are we so different from each other in how we react with and digest the world around us? Why do some succeed in material terms while others ‘fail’? Why are some born with such hardships it can seem overwhelming for others to even comprehend? Everything that makes up US can probably be attributed to a past life or experience we have had along the way, and in some capacity was most likely a choice our soul made, whether we’d like to admit it or not.

On the Road to Recovery: Building an Identity from Scratch

building identity

“Now is always the time, and the fruit is always ripe. You just need to gather courage to enter into your inner forest.” ~ Osho

As it becomes clearer that the true identity of each human being on this planet is entirely unique and authentic and perfect the way it is, so it becomes clear how false those identity cards – or false layers if we are to be like onions, peeling away ingenuity within the self – really are, and how the realization of this eternal truth might lead us closer to uncovering the seed that contains our true selves.

Society teaches us not to wade through the falsehoods in order to discover this seed, but off load trucks of crap onto it; constantly dumping more spade-fulls of ego-centric candy over it to obscure it from the light and stunt its growth...

Swallowing the Jagged Red Pill: Transcending the Matrix

Red pill blue pill. Truth pill deception pill. Lion pill sheep pill. Pain pill comfort pill. Swallowing the red pill is no walk in the park. The rabbit hole is a long, twisted tunnel through the red and blue guts of God. But it also weaves a labyrinth through the human heart that not even God can track.

Indeed, the Rabbit hole, like the red pill, doesn’t lead us into Wonderland –it leads us out of it. With this spirit of adventure, please allow me to take you on a journey out of the matrix of Plato’s Cave (codependence), into the cocoon (independence), and into the Cosmic Commune (interdependence). It will be a bumpy ride, but just as the pain gained from wisdom is infinitely more rewarding than the bliss gained from ignorance, it will be worth it. Let the journey begin.

Decoding the Ego: The Soul Beneath Your Creation


When we indulge in the highs and lows of ego we are in a state of imbalance. The ego defines our strength and weakness. It conceals the meaning of our existence at any state of consciousness. It’s the reagent that overwhelms sensations with emotions as we move away from any conformity or pattern that defines our identity to ourselves. We exist in a mode where society conforms to the concepts of equality based on a singular projection of our potential, as the individual.

“Forget the self and you will fear nothing, in whatever level or awareness you find yourself to be.” ― Carlos Castaneda, The Active Side of Infinity

As our beings evolved thoughts and mental capabilities we somewhere developed the tendencies to drench every aspect of our existence in contemplation, fueled by the polarities of mental conditioning...
