“Find your vibrational balance first – then your life’s labor will find you.”

Our goals can be taken away from us when we’re young

When we are young, we often dream about what we will do in the future and more often than not our less than consistent Self caused us problems. So, if we dreamed about being an artist one day and then an actor the next and a pilot the day after that, we were often discouraged from having such childish thoughts and told to think about a real job, even though we lacked the desire to do so; one that would provide enough money to get married, raise children, and buy a home, the kind of jobs like our family and relatives had. While meaning well, our families and relatives were doing us a great injustice when they believed we should work just for money, or work just for prestige, or work just for a family business.

Follow your feelings to achieve harmony in your life

In the end, if we follow their advice, we will suffer disharmony and live in a negative vibratory state which can cause us emotional and financial harm. Rather than discourage such ideas, families would do much better, and we would as well, if they advise us to do what makes us happy rather than what we are obliged to do; finding what occupation will provide you with the greatest amount of genuine happiness first will then lead to you to your life’s labor. And finding genuine happiness for what you do results in a positive vibratory state which makes this life a sheer enjoyment.

Encourage…not discourage your children to travel a different path

When your child is growing-up, encourage them to think big and wonderful and wacky thoughts of being an artist, an actor, a policeman, an astronaut or whatever profession that really ignites a passion or curiosity within them. As you child goes about their daily activities, they will no doubt experience positive things that accompany such worthy occupations. They will see a comedian make an audience roar with laughter; they will see a policeman save a child from grave danger; they will see a scientist discover a new planet somewhere in the farthest reaches of the universe – witnessing these various good experiences can then transfer to become the true experiences they have in their adult lives.

Support your child’s unbridled curiosity 

When you child is older and enters the workforce, let them experience as many occupations that their curiosity can handle and with your full support. Let them do menial tasks, let them apply for prestige jobs, let them travel abroad and live in a hut with natives who survive on little money and eat what nature provides for them. Let them experience as many different jobs as humanly possible with the full knowledge that they will find their true calling in life after their many experiences – both good and bad.

Experiencing different occupations is meaningful and not meaningless 

Many might think that job surfing is a waste of time and time is wasted money, however, we have many years ahead of us and all these experiences are not wasted since each experience results in what we are and how we go about our life’s journey. So, let them not have to do what you think they should do with their life, instead let them align themselves with the real them which is deep inside their soul. And, if they keep an open mind and fully experience each new job that they work at, our children shall exist within a positive vibratory state which will then lead them to their life’s labor.

What makes you happy? 

Now, at a certain stage of life, many find themselves trapped in a job which pays them a large salary, gives them little time to spend with their family, and puts a great deal of stress upon their health. Overall, it appears to be a recipe for an unfulfilled and unhappy life. What can a person do in this unpleasant present situation they find themselves in? Well, what makes you happy? This may not be an easy question to answer since the average person will make their decision based upon their monthly bills and unpaid obligations.

Your life’s purpose manifests when you are in a positive vibratory state 

However, to break the cycle, one has to view what they really want…not based upon the present, but upon their true feelings. I am not advocating just going out and quitting your present job with little or no regard for your financial and personal obligations.

Don’t allow limits to provide answers to your questions

I am saying just the opposite; start by answering the question with a relaxed mind and body with no limiting thoughts about your present situation. If you feel anxiety, you can never find that ideal job since a negative vibratory state will not and cannot ever lead you to a positive vibratory state which includes the work that you want to spend your life doing. Your life’s purpose cannot manifest under stressful or fearful thoughts and conditions.

Achieving my positive vibrational state  

I have experienced what I am writing about: I was working in financial services for many years and had wanted to enjoy a new career, but due to financial and personal obligations, my dream was always after this bill was paid or that bonus was received. I never gave-up on my dream, rather, I visualized my new career every day and experienced all the joys it brought me long before it ever brought them to me.

You may face many unpleasant presents before you live your passion 

As a result, it took many years of unpleasant presents to pass before I finally made the leap to a new career. I went back to university full-time and was making as much money doing odd jobs each month – selling carpets and automobiles – as I made each week in my past job. However, my vibrational state was positive and great happiness has filled my life as an English instructor in a variety of foreign countries. After 15 years of never having a single sick day and still enjoying my work and my students, I know that I found my life’s labor and it wasn’t all about hard work; it was about finding and pursuing what I had a passion for.

Love your labor and not the money

Find your vibratory balance first and then this will undoubtedly lead you to your life’s passion. You can reach this level of awareness and achievement by first, not listening to the wisdom of others. Second, by listening to your Self and then third, act accordingly. At that point, you will never work another day in your life.

“Attaining physical health, material wealth, and the spiritual Self is an inside job.”

There is no new energy, only awareness of the present energy

energyIt has been written that at the very moment of creation, all the knowledge and experience of humankind was also created concomitantly at that miraculous moment. Hence, it is not possible to create new knowledge any more than it is possible to create new energy; it simply exists and it is our awareness that provides the opportunity to tap into the unseen and unfounded knowledge that permeates throughout the universe. And it is our degree of awareness which results in our degree of achievement.

A universal web or net

The ancients, such as the American Hopi and the Australian aboriginals, spoke of the presence of a universal net or web of energy which was created by the Source to connect the largest and smallest objects throughout the heavens. When they spoke of this net or web, naturally, they were bound by and limited to what was familiar to them at the time of their observation. One’s ability is then limited by their current language to describe a concept, an object, or an occurrence. When we in the modern world use our modern lens to understand what the ancients attempted to convey to us, perhaps it is our language that leads to our misinterpretation of their messages.

Is our DNA the true holder of primordial knowledge? 

If the Source created all knowledge and experience for the benefit of humankind in an instant, it then seems likely that the sum total of knowledge and experience should not be lost through time. However, moving from an oral to written culture, we can assume the words and then the message may change partially or completely from the original over time. Surely, it would be counterintuitive that our benevolent Source would permit the original, uncontaminated knowledge to be lost or changed at the detriment of humanity. While we in the modern era believe that the web or net of creation is the holder of worldly knowledge, it is possible that the web or net of creation is not a holder of information; rather, it is a conduit of information. The true holder of information is the DNA found in our physical bodies.

Primordial knowledge is never lost…it is rediscovered

After decades of research, scientists still only understand a meager 5% about our bodies’ DNA. It is the unknown 95% that holds the potential to store the accumulated knowledge of humankind. This being the case, the primordial knowledge from the Source would never be lost to humanity and each of us would have the same opportunity to benefit from this knowledge. After all, when we listen to our inner voice, it is not out there; it resonates deep within our very souls, deep within our DNA. Have faith and belief that success is indeed an inside job.

The only moment you have is this moment.

9. Die each moment so that you can be new each moment. 

(Osho’s Ninth New Commandment)

There is but one moment

Many look forward to a future of wealth, prestige, and good health; some look to the past when they had wealth, prestige and good health; and the rest never look at the present moment for wealth, prestige, and good health. However, you can never live in a past moment….you can never live in a future moment. All you have is this moment…the one that just began and the one that just ended.

header15A truly wondrous moment

We live in a truly marvelous moment: one that gives us the sweet songs of the birds, the harmonious rush of the mountain streams, and the gentle whir of the four winds. These natural phenomena are what we should be aware of and what we should express gratitude for…they open our souls to the spiritual, the intense wow from the depths of our very existence. The now.

The moment exists for each of us 

However, you must be aware of these things, you must be awake that they exist within you and without you. Each of us has the sacred moment in our soul: we need not be religious, we need not be old or young, male or female. There is no prejudice, there is no exclusion of a single soul based upon their gender, age, location, intellect, health or wealth. The moment is innate within each of us, and it is our responsibility to find that moment, live that moment, be grateful for that moment.

Our role in the moment

Each of us is equal in the eyes of the moment, hence, we are the moment, and if we do not acknowledge the wonder of the moment, it is not complete…the universe is missing a piece of itself because we are the universe. We are unaware of the moment but we cannot separate our soul from the universe any more than our blood can separate itself from our heart;  our breath can separate itself from our lungs; or our thought can separate itself from our minds.

Each moment dies a quick death 

This moment exists only once, and as each moment dies, we must accept the next wondrous moment. We must fully live this moment as our last moment,after all, this all there is in life.  Do not focus upon happiness and joy in the future, it can never be experienced in the future because once it stops being the future, it becomes the past.

Every new moment brings wonder 

As we die this moment, this allows the next to be born. As a newborn child arrives in the physical world, full of awe, wonder, amazement…we must also see, feel, experience our new moment with awe, wonder, and amazement. Our new moment allows us to embrace what is ours; do not keep it hidden…out of our focus, out of our awareness, out of our consciousness.

Gladfully surrender each wondrous moment to live the next, and as the death of this moment occurs, feel grateful that you have the next new moment to feel the wonder of life surging through your heart, lungs, and mind.

What is life?

2. The only God is life itself

(Osho’s Second New Commandment)

Misguided love 

It appears that we in this modern era have turned our love of the Source to the love of things and science. The focus of our affection and adoration has turned from a caring, compassionate entity to cold, inanimate objects of steel and gold. However, it is our new found love that has left us deeply scarred and longing for what we know is the pathway to joy and a meaningful life.

We pass with only our souls  

header16Many believe that they can find true happiness from owning the latest purse, watch, car, or mobile phone. They rush out and attempt to find their lost identity in a particular model of phone or purse, spurred on by a feeling of emptiness and want. That new purchase may temporarily fill their needs, however, it can never fill them long term…all new goods soon become out of date, old, not ‘in’ anymore and then the carousel of buying to feel whole starts again with a new one of this or a new one of that. We can never take any of our physical possessions with us when we pass to the next level of existence.

Science is not the answer 

Then there are others who rationalize that science can fill their needs, answer all of their questions about life, our reason, and our purpose to be here in our present physical manifestation. They reason that only the seen, those objects that can be measured, and quantified are the ‘real’ things in life. The unseen is not real, it is a canon of fiction and fallacy that poets write about, lover’s dream about, singers sing about, and religious people pray about. However, this idea loses it shine when analyzed critically, after all, we cannot see electricity or gravity but we enjoy the benefits from these two great forces of nature each and every day of our lives. Science may help you live more days, but in the end even this miracle no longer can keep you alive.

Nature is crested by a loving Source 

The rest of us have a firm belief that there is a wondrous power in nature, a strong force, a timeless energy that has been present since the universe was formed billions of years ago. That force is life itself, and it comes in all shapes and sizes, in all places and at all times. How can we not marvel at a clear blue mountain stream or a stand of stately sequoia trees…both testaments to the oneness of nature, the miraculous plan from our Creator. And nestled in amongst those beautiful moments of nature, we find humankind; our life a miracle, a planned miracle, a marvelous product created by the Source. The belief in a force other than yourself provides long term joy and meaning to this life and those that follow.

Things and formulas cannot fill the hole that exists within your soul, these things can only temporarily mask the emptiness that exists within, they can never truly satisfy a person for long in this life.

Worship life

We should worship life; it is a miracle in whatever form it takes… an eagle, a flower or a human life. Every minute that your hearts beats or you take a breath of air, it is an amazing miracle and we should express our deepest gratitude to feel joy and purpose in our life. Life is the Source…it was, it is, and it will be.
