Dayone Shaman | The Purpose Of Life

The Anthem

With so many to choose from, the beauty of the universe has conspired for this underdog, as it becomes the only choice possible as a soundtrack to cover a topic of such magnitude that is The Purpose Of Life .

Some rose tints, coupled with the lack of having had chance to see the epic accompanying motion picture adventure in time, for quite some time.  May cause some tug on your heart strings, when the real truth of the matter of the epic I allude to, is finally revealed.

Also, the difficulty in not saying ball bag is real, that goes for tea bagged too.

Who knew, really.  I never did.

Enjoy the video.

Hanging Off A Label

In our daily lives we attempted to harness all that is within the lasso of words.  We flatten and compact the shapes and forms of existence into structures so that they may be recognisable both to ourselves and to others.  The wonders of the universe easily explained away in the flat two dimensional world of words.

But this is not the limit of words.  They are more than merely descriptions of life, ensuring that we differentiate between petrol and diesel or the days of the week  They have meaning or rather, we give them meaning  and as such they hold a power.  Words have the power to heal and to inspire they also have the  power to destroy, to hurt and to cage.

The words we use are labels for the reality we find ourselves in.  They are not the matter, the object, or the thing, they are merely the tag that we have pinned to it.  The usefulness of this method of labelling is obvious, but what might be less than obvious is the very action of labelling compresses the thing into a simple two dimensional word.  Psychedelic explorer Terence McKenna speaks about this when he says,

Culture replaces authentic feeling with words. As an example of this, imagine an infant lying in its cradle, and the window is open, and into the room comes something, marvelous, mysterious, glittering, shedding light of many colors, movement, sound, a transformative hierophany of integrated perception and the child is enthralled and then the mother comes into the room and she says to the child, “that’s a bird, baby, that’s a bird,” instantly the complex wave of the angel peacock iridescent trans-formative mystery is collapsed, into the word. All mystery is gone, the child learns this is a bird, this is a bird, and by the time we’re five or six years old all the mystery of reality has been carefully tiled over with words. This is a bird, this is a house, this is the sky, and we seal ourselves in within a linguistic shell of dis-empowered perception. – Terence McKenna

The action of  labelling the fantastic, as we are in the habit of doing so, we can easily get into the habit of labelling ourselves.  Collapsing the mystery of what it is to be us, to be you into a label of convenience both for ourselves and for the benefit of others.  “I am this” or “I am that” can become a boundary, it can become our prison.    When we hear the word depression, we can suddenly become the depression.  Depression is a label that can seek to do far more damage than it can ever do for good, specially if it is blindly attached to.  Oftentimes most cases of depression are in fact a reaction to the reality that is presented to us.  It is our natural state rejecting the indoctrination that we are being exposed to.  It is due to our ability possibly to empathise, that the feelings we perceive to be our own may not be so.  As a result of this rejection of the ‘normal’ we seek aid for a condition that has arisen due to our strength to perceive beyond the veil that is pulled over our eyes.  So what happens?  We are labelled as having depression and are subsequently drugged.  As the pain of birth, as the caterpillar transforms within the cocoon, as it is on the cusp of emergence, when the symptoms are at their peak.  It is then that we receive the doctors labelling and subsequent relief.  The strongest of us are put back to sleep to ensure that they can not fulfill their roles as nature had intended.

To label can be to limit, mind your attachments.

Play The Game

The number 1 golden Rule!

Do not for any one minute of your time, do not take anything as though it were serious.

The universe is a game board laid out just for you to play on.  But it is more fitting to say perhaps, that: you are playing the game of being the universe.

Fake it ’till you Make it.

In order to manifest anything you first need to create the attraction to it.  So if you focus on the scarcity of money, for example, you will attract the scarcity of money frequency of the universe towards yourself and we don’t want that.  So remember often, that you live in abundance.  This may sound crazy but even if you don’t believe it, pretend you live in complete abundance.  I remember once trying to decide between two varieties of coffee in my cupboard.  I suddenly started laughing at having that choice to make, of the abundance that I had taken for granted up until that point.

This way of thinking pulls you into the abundance frequency.  You suddenly see that you have so much.  You look around with abundance in your head and you are blown away by how much you have.  When you do have less of something in particular, you still see abundance around you so there is no loss as such just a recognition of an area to focus abundance on.   This focus is a background task performed by your mind.  You do this consciously in as much as you send out a thought like paper planes imagining plenty of peanut butter spread across a piece of bread, when in reality you ran out 3 days ago.  The thought is a dart of energy sent out into the ether.  If you were to write down ‘Peanut Butter’ on a piece of paper, this sends more energy into the thought of abundance you have created.  It’s also the start of a shopping list so, law of attraction, more items are added to this and you go shopping and bang you are abundant in peanut butter as you are always.

I have none becomes, I have loads.  Just not at this moment.

This works with the money too.  You gladly turn over your money for your supermarket goods because you have all these good things to eat or drink, in return for a few bits of paper.  Happy days.  You have the money for the goods right now.  You will have it again, only now you are looking towards abundance, rather than scarcity.

Your body is manifested by your looking towards scarcity or abundance too.  The propagation of a mindset which is considered ‘less than’ will attract the disposition of ‘less than’ which will affect anything physical.  Your visor is tinted to the ‘less than’  view of the world.  You will see it in yourself.  You will feel it inside to the point whereby, a ‘less than’ mindset will find suspicious a person living with an abundance nature.  They will not recognise abundance to the extent that they will look to strip that person’s character through some sort of flaw, even if this is in their own mind.  This is in order to justify their ‘less than’ existence which is created from the mind rather that the higher self and one which they have attached with.  It is going against their natural state and must be reinforced often in order to be maintained.

Look for ways to notice that you live in abundance and you will manifest good things from it.  This attitude comes from a place of awareness and a recognition that you are responsible for you and you alone.  The rest is the abundance of the universe showing itself to you anyway it can.  Enjoy the abundance of it all ✌

The Light of Consciousness

Brighter than the sun

The light of Consciousness beams all around, far beyond you, farther than you can see, hear, smell or taste. The light of consciousness, is up, down, left and right.  It is in the corners of a cupboard and it is underneath your skin.  It is your skin.  It is you.  It is the cat, it is a Lego brick.  It is the flow of the universe expressing itself right now, and now, and now.

As our sun shines down on you, you will cast a shadow on the ground.  Now imagine transforming your body from flesh and bone, into a fantastic jewel with many facets and colour changes.  Areas of denser and lighter opacities.  Now as you stood there, you would not cast a shadow as the sun shone, you would witness an enormous display of refracted light.  Beautiful spectrums and pinpoints of such intense brightness as the rays are focused. The sun would shine through you.  And it would feel amazing.

By working on yourself in your chosen discipline, that is to say, whatever you are doing right now, you are refracting the light of consciousness that is moving through you.  You will not cast a complete shadow from the light of conscious you are always expressing consciousness, it will move through you as it moves through a stone in a field.

You are it

As much as a star becomes a supernova or an apple forms on a tree. Each of these examples  expresses the universes’ evolution.  However you, as human, are in a different situation than these ‘natural’ events.  You have Awareness of it.  The continued expanse and evolution of consciousness is shining through you right now.

Perfect

A jewel that you can change, adapt, hone, polish, suffer with.  Own it, adore it, use it, respect it, love it, it’s yours, it’s you.  Shine tha’ fuck on!

A New Earth

Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
~~
Eckhart Tolle

Chapter One
The Flowering of Human Consciousness

Evocation

Earth, 114 million years ago, one morning just after sunrise: the first flower ever to appear on the planet opens up to receive the rays of the sun. Prior to this momentous event that heralds an evolutionary transformation in the life of plants, the planet had already been covered in vegetation for millions of years.

The first flower probably did not survive for long, and flowers must have remained rare and isolated phenomena, since conditions were most likely not yet favorable for a widespread flowering to occur. One day, however, a critical threshold was reached, and suddenly there would have been an explosion of color and scent all over the planet – if a perceiving consciousness had been there to witness it.

Much later, those delicate and fragrant beings we call flowers would come to play an essential part in the evolution of consciousness of another species. Humans would increasingly be drawn to and fascinated by them. As the consciousness of human beings developed, flowers were most likely the first thing they came to value that had no utilitarian purpose for them, that is to say, was not linked to some way to survival. They provided inspiration to countless artists, poets, and mystics. Jesus tells us to contemplate the flowers and learn from them how to live. The Buddha is said to have given a “silent sermon” once during which he held up a flower and gazed at it. After a while, one of those present, a monk called Mahakasyapa, began to smile. He is said to have been the only one who had understood the sermon. According to legend, that smile (that is to say realization) was handed down by twenty-eight successive masters and much later became the origin of Zen.

On Letting Go – A Zen Story

A Cup of Tea

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.

Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!”

“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
