Where does wonder reside?
There is wonder all around us. When we live in awe, it has a positive effect on us and our whole way of being. Take a moment and look around, the furniture, outside the window, at all the people and things within your vision. For just a moment, pause where you are, soak in the current state of the area around you, and pay special attention to your own state of being.
Wonder is a state of exploration.
When we live in a state of wonder we are seeking the truth. Making us explorers of life. In this state of being we experience joy, a joy so natural that it builds curiosity, wisdom, and humility.

Life’s experiences are full of beauty.
Opportunities exist to see life as a never-ending invitation to explore grace that is found in our pure existence. Open yourself to the divine and walk your path easily like a child exploring the wonders of life. Your divine heart is wanting… yearning to be awakened to the beauty of living.
Wonder is simple.
We are made of Love so wonder is our natural state – to be in wonder – is as natural as it is for the trees to bloom, for birds to sing, for rivers to flow to the ocean. Wonder is a natural state of the present moment. Those that are not living in the moment are lusting for the future and postponing this moment, missing the exploration of now. The flame of hear and now dances in the reality of our fulfilling life.
Maintain your awe.
Go deep into this present now – whatsoever you are doing. You can be reading, eating, dancing, singing or maintaining your garden – whatsoever you are doing. This is the only time you have, why not do it totally? Why not be in wonder and joy? Wonder and Being Total mean the same thing. You maintain your wonder only when you are totally in something, and when you are totally in something you wonder.
That is only the beginning of the majesty of wonder.
Many geometric patterns have a universal appeal and can be found virtually everywhere. Explore the arrangement of branches along the stems of plants, of veins in leaves, and in the geometry of crystals and symbols. No one has eyes like you, they are deep and authentic, instantly recognizable as you. Listen for someone’s truth, see how beautiful their truth is. There is always something valuable in another’s words. Listen to the world around you. Just like the vibration of empowering music, sound can lift us up to fly high above our circumstances, and then there is nothing more beautiful than the sound of laughter.
Compassion is awe inspiring.
Imagine you are a part of a vast circle that includes everyone else on the planet, where everyone is connecting to their inherent light as they recognize the divine gift they have to share. Look at all individuals you meet, understanding that each of them have a wonderful gift of their hearts to share. Feel the compassion within as it builds for each person. As you live with wonder, you key into what life holds for us and your wonder unlocks and swings open the door of awe. Your new way of being provides a healthier way of living with less stress.
Fascination is more than a nice addition to our life.
Wonder has a purpose that plays a real role in the quality of our lives, and our mental state. There are studies that show patients heal faster when they have a view of beautiful surroundings in and out of the room. We are drawn to spaces that feel more natural and that inspire us. This week, decide to pay attention to your sense of fascination and find ways to consume it, just as you would anything that’s good for you. See and experience the wonder of life through enjoyment and participation. Therefore, take time to renew and honor playtime, to become receptive to synchronistic messages. Our level of happiness is based on how we choose to view and live our lives.

160930-free-time-to-free-the-mindHave you ever been working so hard and fast then to only realize you were getting very little done? Of course you have – we all have! We all have moments when we feel so crazed and scattered that our productivity simply vanishes. Its times like these there seems to be no solution.

 Rest and activity are the steps toward progress and always remember balance is key. It may seem counterproductive but in order to be productive we have to balance our outer life with our inner life. We generally have all our work time scheduled; and when we get home we have family, chores, and lists of projects. But what about time for play, rest, and relaxation, do we have time in our calendar for them? Many times rest and relaxation are just an afterthought.” Oh, I’ll take time off when I get caught up.” But we never really get caught up because the projects just keep coming, so the busy cycle continues, and we spiral downward.

 Our thoughts can work against us, greatly adding to our problems. Making them bigger rather than working for us and making problems smaller and more manageable. Do good and feel good. Do bad and feel bad. It’s that simple. Our work life depends on our inner satisfaction and peace. When we feel we aren’t getting anywhere our awareness leaves the present moment and attaches to the past or the future and we lose our sense of direction in the present. Try looking through the front windshield and not the rearview mirror.

 So, what can we do? We must set aside time to apply self-care to our real needs, what our true nature desires. Then life becomes much lighter. Mentally, we are hungry for nourishing experiences that free the mind to inner peace. Every cell of our body already knows to respond to the ever-changing circumstance with adaptability and creativity to maintain its health and balance.

 The creative core is a term for the deep well of creativity and creative capacity that is in every human being. Living from your creative core means you respond to every moment from a place of possibility and openness. When we are creatively and emotionally nourished, then our true nature is in balance with our physical self and we can accomplish more.

 Take a break from social media whenever you can to focus on the positivity in your real, immediate life. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and set time aside for activities that nourish your Being. Reading a book, meditation, or doing something to stir the creative spark within you; all of these things can be the key to your inner satisfaction. Successful people have found that if they spend time on their selves their professional lives prosper. So don’t forget to schedule vacations and make time in your day to bring peace and contentment to your Being.

 Focus your conscious mind on things you desire not things you fear. Doing so brings dreams to life. Self-knowledge has nothing to do with our ego or personality; it is about our True Nature and the unique and vital role that only we can contribute to the cosmos. You are only destined to become one person – the person you decide to be.

Inspiration is the Doorway to Spirit Communication. Inspiration is the Doorway to Spirit Communication.

We all have something in life that draws from that creative state within our being, and leads us to our inspiration. This process is very similar to meditation, in that, insights come to us from somewhere beyond ourselves. Each and every one of us holds the same power to create from our inspiration. The time has come for us to develop our creativity and recognize we are tapping into the intuitive process.

When we work with whatever creative endeavor we enjoy, we naturally begin to relax. This is totally normal, and in this relaxed state of being we may focus our awareness on more than just what we are creating. We can use this time to look at what’s going on in our life to make decisions, to look at issues, and possibly find solutions to our concerns.

The creative process can take us even further...The creative process can take us even further, if we allow ourselves to be aware, open, and receptive to all forms of experience. Creativity can access our own Divine love that exists within our higher consciousness. We can move beyond the mental musings of our mind, and connect to the collective psyche of the universe. Once we open these doorways we can bring them into our daily lives, enriching ourselves and those around us.

Once exposed to Divine Love, we break through our physical and mental barriers and are forever aware of our greater state of Being and interconnection to all life. With this spiritual connection we fill our actions with loving attention, thus, walk down the path of spiritual maturity. This is true Spirit communication from our source to our intellect and our ability to act.

If Not Now... Then WhenCreative spiritual maturity is needed today in our local communities, nations, and the world. More and more we need to push open that door in our heart and mind to let the light stream out were it is visible for all to see. Share our valuable new found ideas, expand them with other creative men and women working for a promising radiant future, filled with equitable solidarity and peace.

Blessings,
David Bennett

inner symphony

Don’t allow life’s adversity to spiral into greater and greater circles of suffering. Instead infuse Love into every situation and ask your higher guidance for harmony. Listen to the guidance and feel the flow that is surrounding us. It is like hearing music that rhythmically flows around and through us. Move into the flow and watch as adversity is washed away with loving harmony.

The more we connect with our resonant harmony the more we are in touch with our True Being. This, after all, is our natural state of being, not some supernatural accomplishment. Deep within us we feel the connection to oneness, we only have to allow that love to be present. Acknowledge the love; bring it into all aspects of life like work, play, study, and reflection. Soon we see harmony and abundance are growing in both inner and outer worlds.

Door after DoorSometimes we find ourselves feeling unfulfilled. During those times look again to your connection with your True Being. Within your Being is the link to the greater consciousness of oneness and a way to identify that missing something. It is very much like opening one door after another, each time remembering a little more of our purpose and solutions. Always be patient and allow the resonance of your Being to guide, direct and heal.

Once we begin to live in balance with our True Being we each create our own realities and manifest in our lives what is needed to be whole and complete. The inner life is the true reality…yet, our inner guidance provides for making life in this world more precious and productive. Don’t retreat from activity in the world; embrace the ongoing effort of making this moment and our future the best it can be filled with love and harmony. Be the center of your “Being,” radiating your good works outward into the world.

Namaste

Breath of Change

When the physical world seams so out of balance, Stop and take a breath. In this culture that we have co-created there is always one thing after another pulling us away from our spiritual centers. Take a moment to understand they are just things or passion filled events connected to our physical consciousness. Now use this moment to feel your Presence, your spiritual consciousness.

When we live with our awakened spiritual consciousness we create a local sphere of balanced influence. We are creating a balance between the physical and the spiritual. This is a local field of resonance that is changing our physical world toward a more balanced, verdant and just place.

 In order for us to maintain and nurture this balance, we need an understanding of our spiritual consciousness, that way we may recognize it within us. Love and compassion are the core of our being and it feels strong and soft all at the same time. It is faithful to us, never criticizing or disparaging. It seeks equality with all elements of our physical and spiritual universe.

So knowing and understanding this, should not we begin to emulate and model ourselves, our thoughts and intentions to be in alignment with our spiritual consciousness? That is the way we nurture and maintain the balance.

As more of us develop our spheres they expand and interconnect to one another. With more people expanding their balance the easier it becomes to be Present always. We begin to help each other through this topsy turvy world, transcending and giving true meaning to our lives. After all, each sphere is our contribution to co-creation.

So when the physical world seams so out of balance, STOP and breath your balance into it.

Follow Your Path

Follow Your Path

We are not alone on this earth/Gaia. We wander our paths feeling alone, separate from everyone and everything. At times on my life’s journey I have witnessed the interconnectedness we all have to the loving Divine Self / Source.  It’s our minds and physical nature that keeps pulling us toward separateness and when we buy into it, it feeds the ego until it becomes unbalanced. Then we find ourselves teetering on the need and desire for more-and-more with disregard for our fellow beings and the earth we walk upon. I’m not saying our mind is the enemy. I feel we are missing a greater part of being human and connected to the Oneness.

When we feel separate and we begin to “THINK” of ourselves as me, we also then “THINK” of people not like us as “them” or “others.”  There are no others!!!  Oh, how I would like to shout that from the rooftops. We only have to look at our world today to see how well the belief in being separate is going. Separateness keeps us from completely living our lives and detaches the union of our True Be-ing’s perspective.

Once we touch the Oneness then we understand that we all come from the Divine Source, that everything comes from the “One.” The source is within each of us and thus we are all connected to each other and everything. No thinking necessary, Once we surrender our thoughts we can then feel and know the deeper unified consciousness.

The seed of the tree doesn’t think to sprout and grow roots into the earth and branch upward toward the sky. When we are conceived in the womb we don’t think about growing a body with legs and arms, or when to start our heart beating. That is all divine nature and our true being working with the Source to deliver our consciousness into this physical world.

Kinship As humans we crawled out of the caves and away from the tribes to develop societies beliefs and civilizations. We used our minds all the while as we moved forward and at the same time distancing us from our interconnected Divine Self.
Now that we are here, we need to practice loving mindful attention focused on our connection to our true being in-order-to overcome this separateness and recognize our kinship with the world we live upon. Only then will we live a life with satisfaction and contentment, casting away unnecessary desires for more-and-more. Through our kinship with all, we can make an even better world.

Blessings, David

Fear of death is like the way we fear our first day in a new class. We have some anxiety, apprehension and fear of the unknown. But those of us that have died and returned have had our introduction to the class and the other students. We found that we really liked the subject and the other souls we found there. We know there is going to be some intense study ahead. But we are looking forward to it. So in the meantime we are doing our pre-course requirement. In this life I plan on gaining as many experiences so I can bring them back to the class for examination when the time is right.dv1644057

No longer having the fear of death gives an incredible freedom. Freedom to live life unbridled and to it’s fullest. Filled with joy and gratitude with each encounter or experience. It also gives a sense of calm and ability to relaxe, no longer needing to get caught up in the rat race.

Not that I do not participate in life. On the contrary, I want more than ever to live a full life.  Carrying on through hardships and good times overcoming and taking it all in. I try to keep as positive as I humanly can through all times. When I can accomplish this there comes a sense of completion.

That is usually when something synchronistic will occur and signal the end of one course or the beginning of a new path/direction to move toward. If I have Learned anything from my experiences it is to FOLLOW THOSE SYNCHRONISTIC EVENTS in life. There is always more to it and even though I can’t see the bigger picture when it is happening I know it will reveal itself at the right time and place.

Some times it seems too good to be true. That we can connect to the greater universal consciousness but when it does happen I can physically feel my heart opening and filling my being with that warm love and acceptance. I sometimes feel like it is lager than me and projecting beyond my physical self. It is when I am in that place that I can see my light and sometimes the light of others. Also at time like this is when spirit speaks soft loving encouragement to keep moving forward and giving me the strength to take on what is next in this wonderful journey.
