Life Is A Gift

Life Is A Gift

Life Is A Gift
A father divided his fortune and gave his three sons equal shares to do with as they pleased, and asked them to return in a few years to inform him how well they faired with their fortunes.
One son drunk gambled and lived lavishly with his fortune, the second invested it well and turned it into a thriving business and the third hid the money so he would never see it to spend it.
The first son apologised for wasting his fortune and his father replied,
“I am proud of you son –for you have spent my gift to learn a valuable lesson”
The second son was happy to announce his thriving fortune and his father replied,
“I am proud of you son –for you have spent my gift and made it grow”
The third son was pleased to announce the return of the exact money that had been given to him, and to this his father replied,
“I am disappointed in you son –I gave you a gift to enjoy and learn from –but instead you have allowed your fears to waste it away”

Life is a gift –the ever present! That is exactly what life is, a ‘present’ that must be unwrapped, experienced and enjoyed, and to master it, one must live constantly in the present, for the past, present and future are all one –existing only in one constant –the present.

Responsibility, Empathy, Compassion & Consideration

Heart Chakra

Heart Chakra
A very wealthy man decides to visit a friend of his, but when he arrived, his friend asked him if he could please take his shoes off and leave them outside the door when he enters. The wealthy man took off his very expensive shoes and did as he was bid.
A beggar walked past and stole the shoes. Later when the wealthy man discovered his shoes were stolen he began to cry bitterly, so his friend asked him,
“Why are you crying my friend? You can afford to buy fifty more of the same shoes,”
“I am not crying about the shoes my friend,” replied the man, “I am crying because my vanity and inconsideration had caused another human being to believe himself a thief, so I have contributed in turning a human being in need into a thief, for he will think because he had done it once, he might as well do it again –but if I had not left the temptation in his path, he might now not believe that he was the sinner, when the sin was my own”

Think Before You Act

Think Before You Act

Think Before You Act
A man went to see the local wise man to seek advice on correcting many wrongs he had done against his fellow men. He said to the wise man, “Wise sir, I have wronged every family in this village and now I feel a great burden as a result of my actions! How may I correct my wrongs?”
“How did you wrong these families?” asked the wise man
“I spoke ill of them when it was not true, I spread lies and tarnished all their virtues, I made a mock of their good name and reputation until everyone lost respect for them and everyone turned them out! Now I want to correct these wrongs, what must I do, should I admit my wrong to each one of them and ask for their forgiveness?” replied the man
“I have the solution to your problem, it is simple!” said the wise man
“Truly!” returned the man relieved that there was a simple solution, “What is it?”
“Take a feather, any feather and place one feather before the entrance to the dwellings of each of the family you have ruined,” advised the wise man
So the man ran out and took many feathers and carefully placed one before the entrance of each of the dwellings as the wise man had advised and then he returned and informed him he had done so. Then the wise man said, “At first light collect all the feathers from all the dwellings and bring them all to me, then your deed is done and you will have corrected your wrongs”

So the man did not sleep all night as he patiently waited for first light to go and collect all the feathers to hand over to the wise man, but when first light appeared, he was unable to find one single feather to take back to the wise man. During the night a gust of wind had blown the feathers away. For days he searched far and wide praying to find just one feather to take back, but he could not find one.
Finally he returned to the wise man and he told him what had happened and that he searched night and day, but he was unable to find even one feather. So the wise man said, “You see how easy it was to lose something so precious and how hard it is to find it again, because yours are wrongs that cannot be corrected once done!”

What are the long-term benefits of daily yoga practice?

Optimized-Woman T3

The original form of yoga is Hatha, but today a variety of many forms were born from Hatha Yoga and developed to target different areas of persons’ life, development and needs. Therefore depending on what type of yoga you intend on practising, each form introduces a variety of benefits. The longer a form is practised, the more centred the practitioner becomes and the more effective are the results and benefits. At the same time if you continue the practise, even after one has reached their aim, it will ensure that the practitioner maintains reaping the benefits it offers, while deepening the connection and application of the practise.

AwakeConBal is one of those forms that were developed to focus on awakening the multidimensional layers, balancing the connection and communication between the layers to allow for self-empowerment that exudes natural confidence. The long term benefits of practising AwakeConBal Yoga will be substantial as it concentrates on reaching your forth layer (higher self), opening emotional blockages, addressing suppressed issues, increasing creativity and open mindedness, but most importantly the forth layer is recognising your inner power and connection to every living organism in the cosmos, in turn that will give birth to your self empowerment and a sense of deep purpose.

In general all forms of Yoga if practised daily will bring about gradually the following benefits and help maintain them:

1. A sense of well being and great health and flexibility in body, emotions and mind.
2. Learning how to control overwhelming emotions, situations and urges as it keeps you centred, calm and serene.
3. A daily release of negativity, stress and tension from the body, emotions and mind, especially if one is in a high pressured career or environment, therefore practising yoga daily will ensure that you have an outlet to release instead of allowing it to build up within you internally.
4. Allows for a deeper understanding and connection to yourself, your needs and your deepest motivational drive, which will enable greater focus, determination and social skills that will serve your highest benefit.
5. Daily yoga will self empower you, giving you increased confidence, self-control and self worth.
6. Allows for a deeper connection to your human traits of empathy and compassion for all creation, increasing deeper appreciation and consideration of your connection to everything that surrounds you from people, situations to environment.
7. Increases the sense of being present and in living in the now, for it will teach you how to live in the present to appreciate the now.
8. Daily yoga awakens your witness body to allow for a most excellent adventure that is your life, with your mind constantly expanding and allowing for new and imaginative information to flow, by opening new directions in thought and state of being.
9. A dedicated long term practise of yoga will teach the practitioner how to self heal, as well as learn the power of manifestation through intent, two powerful tools that can only be reached when the forth layer has been reached and a channel of communication opened.

These are but a few of the main benefits that a daily practise of yoga will yield in the long term. These points are not simply statements to entice one to being and be dedicated to daily practise of yoga. These points will unfold in your own experience of your chosen yoga practise, and soon enough you will experience each one in turn, but first you must begin to walk this path –we do not expect blind faith in our sharing of this information, we expect one to try it for themselves and reap the fruits of their own rewards.

Terrible Twos!

4138348


Why do children begin to test their parents when they reach the age of two?

My Personal Experience
Maya Eve age two & four months

I noticed a change from the first day of January 2015; she had just turned two years the month before. The change was not gradual nor was there any warnings to what was about to happen.

Suddenly she began to scream, without cause and without reason, just scream continuously in a manner that made the back of your hair stand on end.

Maya Eve up until her second birthday was an angel, she rarely protested and neither objected nor vocally made a scene if she was ever displeased.  Happy to accommodate and go with the flow of life around her, in short she was an absolute pleasure.

Although her determination was clear and strength of character was already shinning out promising a force to be reckoned with.  Nonetheless, it was quite, silent and hidden, Maya was not one to show off her intelligence but rather from her subtle actions, she attempts to give the impression that she is unaware.

Yet when January 1st came her determination and character were no longer hidden, though quite and seriously Wilful, she now screamed it out for all to hear and for mummy to beware!!

At first I was shocked and bewildered for I did not know how to deal with her hysterical screaming that I had never before experienced, and while I searched for reasons and answers as to why she might be acting this way, I continuously blamed myself for perhaps being the cause of this new phase of her life somehow, outside the excuse of just labelling it the terrible twos!

It took many meditations and soul searching sessions and many weeks past before a realisation started to surface clearly through my close observation of Maya.  This was not simply a phase that parents should ignore or tread with care because it’s the terrible twos; I realised that it was way more important and life shaping then that!  The age of two-three is the battle of the wits, yes the toddler will be testing the parent, but let us keep in mind that the toddler is character building, exploring their environment with their own sense of power, pushing the boundaries to see how they can manipulate their environment with all the elements and people within it, yet most importantly they are programming their machine (mind) on the tricks that will work, be effective and allow their desires to materialise.

The toddlers’ point of reference is the role models that represent all males and all females, the mother and father. As they grow this will reflect out to what they will perceive to be an example of how life can be dealt with and how to manipulate people to get what they want based on the treatment and teachings of their parents during the character building age of 2-4.

Maya is a very strong leader personality, a leader personality requires discipline and to understand how to use and work with discipline.  Due to the fact that leader personalities will not listen to others or pay heed, they are leaders, born to lead, born with innate confidence of knowing who they are and where they need to go, knowing that they can have whatever they may desire.  Therefore if a leader personality is not taught discipline and restraint on how to manifest their desires, they will grow stronger with no direction, like a loose cannon about to explode with intense energy that is not focused and has not been taught how to focus.  Such power might be abused for personal agendas and short-sighted entertainment goals, rendering them spoilt and uncontrolled for they are not born to listen or follow but to lead.  If the role models (parents/members of family) of leader personalities toddlers do not match the power, focus and intent of the toddler’s output during the foundation building of their character, it would be too late to make changes later once the character has set with any flaws.

As I realised this I stopped torturing myself that I had done something wrong and began to respond to her based on this theory.  Sure enough as I challenged her strength of character, she came back stronger and stronger each time.  Fearless and her quite determination unwavering, she began testing her Will power and powerful intents against my own, relentlessly and patiently attempting to break me down so she may win her objective.  Each time demanding from me to push her harder and harder back into disciplinary realisations that life will not give you what you want without a fight, a decent fight and one that will test your own endurance.  My message is clear and constant each time, “My dear you will not get far in life throwing tantrums and behaving like a brat, and you will get no where with that behaviour”.  When she eventually gives up and gives in, she looks at me amused and happy with acknowledgement in her eyes that say, “ok mummy I didn’t break you down this time, but I’m going to keep trying!”

I myself do not give up, it is exhausting but each and every time must be exactly the same, I never ignore any of her antics to ensure that she realises I am paying heed and taking care of every action she takes, never give up and never give in, each time the same battle of wits occur between my daughter and I, something beautiful emerges before my eyes.  I notice that my daughters’ character is becoming stronger, more determined, more focused and much more creatively intelligent to try and break me.

There is nothing more beautiful then watching your own child’s character build up stronger and more powerful each day, knowing that you are their sparing partner that will condition your child’s character for the world of tomorrow.

I would not call it the terrible twos, but the character building twos, when your child will challenge the power, focus, intelligence and determination of your own character to build theirs against your own.

If a child grows up a brat due to the parents giving into the child’s whims instead of challenging them to teach them discipline, in such cases every parent knows as much as we love our children and wish to give them everything this world can offer, if we unwittingly spoil them without giving them the tools to deal with people, life and circumstances in the correct manner, we would have condemned them to a life of unhappiness and imbalance.

Awakened Attitude: Know Yourself

830957891


In daily life how we view situations, people and circumstances and how we react to each in turn determines ones attitude.

An attitude is the emotional perception and reaction based on ones life experience, belief system, cultural background and education, which echoes ones overall character.

As most people’s mental body is preoccupied with the odious chores of daily life, the emotional body is just as active possessing its own unique method of perception beyond the five senses attributed to mental awareness.

The emotional body perceives the emotional impulse and motivation of everything and all that surrounds it, from people, objects to events, and as such the emotional body contributes its impressions through attitude.  All forms of attitudes before they are enacted or displayed would normally be filtered through the mind, in order to add the imprint of experience, education and belief system.  In most cases if an attitude is wholly intuitive, as most might be due to their validity springing from an emotional observation, the mental body would then adjust them accordingly to the predetermined backdrop of education, culture and experience.

If those observations are changed by the mental body, they would no longer reflect an external awareness of your entire universe at play, but it would reflect the fears, cautions and doubts of the mental body’s over protective drive and unwavering control over any information that was not derived from the five senses.

Such persons as those who acknowledge their emotional body and work with its unique sensibilities would therefore be named emotionally intelligent.

An emotionally intelligent human being is one who can intuitively comprehend and acknowledge the subtle bodies of others as well as itself, including detecting the motivation and drive of how, why and when a certain event or choice might be made in its environment and by whom.  Some people who do not have an active emotional body but a highly active mental body, always presume that they are superior to any others and feel immense pride in not being motivated emotionally or in having no influence from their emotional body.  The latter tend to be highly calculated and stick to strict pillars of belief, in short tend to have a narrow mind, for if one is not listening or acknowledging their own emotional body, which has attributes that possess immense power of deduction and foresight; then one would be ignorant of their own potential and could never reach it without their emotional intelligence.

However, even such calculated persons experience overwhelming emotions in one time or another that would dictate the course of events or important life changing choices, although perhaps not as frequently as an emotionally intelligent person.

Like anything in this universe, balance is always key to ones highest evolved potential.  For an over active emotional body would also have devastating effects, for it would possess the power to motivate ones entire being into action, overwhelming mind and the senses and depending on the path it wishes to motivate one towards, whether exalted or a manically erratic course, it inevitably could lead to the destruction of ones life.

An awakened attitude is to be aware of all these different factors that make up your character that would shape your existence, to be mindful of the advantages as well as the disadvantages of each of your multidimensional layers and their function or dysfunction.

One cannot be objective if one is overwhelmed emotionally, nor can ones mental choices be accurate if the mind felt threatened, for it would switch to survival mode that would permit any/all actions as necessary.   Therefore a constant state of balance is vital to ensure that all multidimensional layers function in calm unison, appropriating correct channels of communication between all layers before choosing a specific course of action.

By reaching this state of calm balance one would then be able to hear the voice of the forth layer, which is that of the higher self or the soul as some might like to call it.  The forth layer is the being that is one with the universe and its creative pulse that carries all information and represents all and everything that ever existed.  The soul has lived all the possibilities of ones past, present and future lives and it has mapped out every possible path, fate and destiny, leaving nothing to chance, for there is no such thing as chance or accident if you believe that one possesses a soul.

Some might question then what of choice?

If we look at the entire picture on this earth in ones earthly body, one has no choice and the few superficial choices ones mind is left with were already predetermined by ones forth layer before one even enters this sphere of existence.
For example, one might think that the choice of becoming an addict was ultimately a consequence of a string of conscious choices one had made in ones life, and perhaps if ones life has been a little different, then those choices could have been prevented.  Theoretically perhaps, but experience in this area points to a different possibility; if all possible outcomes derived from all possible choices had all been predetermined by your higher self before entering your physical body on this earth, then it would only stand to reason that no matter how different ones life might had been, the choice to become an addict would always had presented itself and the possibility of entering that experience is a necessary karma that had to be lived.  The only slight difference that would have become apparent was not in the eventuality of becoming an addict, but in how easy one will overcome this karmic experience based on superficial life choices that must bring one to an awakened attitude, which in turn would enable one to come out on the other side evolved and grown into a better human being as a consequence of that experience.

Philosophy is a beautiful mind altering pastime, which if one dedicates themselves to understanding better, soon they would understand that every human being is a philosopher born from an awakened attitude to life.  As one begins to reach the forth and fifth multidimensional layers, one is getting closer to the source that had shaped its entire existence, it would then stand to reason that one would see in complete balanced calmness its entire destined path and how one should proceed forward.

How May I Reach My Forth And Fifth Multidimensional Layers?

363619385


There is a process to reach profound awakened state of consciousness and awareness.  If you have been skirting around the concept of a soul/higher self and had taken the initiative to research and discover more about what it is and how one may connect to it, then reaching it through one of the AwakeConBal programs will serve this purpose, for the forth at least.

AwakeConBal philosophy is that all human beings are born connected and balanced to all their multidimensional layers.  Therefore it is their upbringing, education and environment that disconnects them, in essence if one begins to reconnect their multidimensional layers, then reaching their forth layer would be an easy enough target.

However like always life is not that simple, for in most cases by this disconnection not only an imbalance occurs but and depending on how badly parenting, education or lack of and environment had damaged each layer in turn, would render the process difficult and painful for most partitioners.

A damaged layer requires time to heal and for healing to take place the person must acknowledge the damage, confront the damage and understand why it happened in the first place, all these factors are very painful processes.  Even if one managed to muster up the courage to face each of these factors, each one in turn take their own time before you can reach the end result.

At AwakeConBal we will not sugar coat the process for you in order for you to sign up and pay money for a quick fix.  To reach your inner power in order to empower yourself, gain natural confidence that nothing can shake and be a master of your own destiny –it will require hard work, courage, patience, tenacity and absolute belief in the path you had chosen.  There is no quick fix in this matter, it took years for that damage to take root, and it will take you years for that same damage to be uprooted.  The only comfort we can assure you at AwakeConBal that if you commit yourself 100%, it will be your higher self that will step in to save you from that process by reducing the time through enlightening to your truth that much sooner.

For those who are absolute beginners in yoga and wish to explore their own spirituality further to experience their own truth in this area, then we strongly recommend that you start with gentle hatha yoga, even if one does not wish to participate in the AwakeConBal program, please ensure that you start with Hatha beginners’ yoga.  If one attempts to jump ahead of the necessary process it might result in the damage to one or more of the layers to increase.

Yoga is a journey into self discovery and must be allowed the time and patience to awaken each layer in turn, as a practitioner you must allow the time to understand and confront each life challenge and issue as and when they may surface and when your mental layer (body) is ready to acknowledge them and work through them.

If one jumps ahead in the process and does not take the time to awaken their multidimensional layers gradually, then issues will surface that has long been forgotten and will shock your system into realisation, if one is mentally unprepared to confront such issues, it could have devastating effects to your entire being as a result, leaving one in a much worst state then before.

To reach the fifth layer takes a whole lifetime of spiritual work and dedication, and a whole lifetime does mean your entire life from beginning to end.  Starting from as young as four years of age, so that by third stage of childhood (20-30) the third and forth layer would be very active and surpasses the best of any human mental activity that when one enters the second stage of adulthood (40-50) most would have experienced their bliss body.  The latter is achieved once a detachment of the self from all material and worldly attachment and once a life had been spent divided between simple servitude to the environment and mankind, with weeks of endless meditative state of being.  The latter is based on the experience of some of the far eastern Monks who reached bliss body in the manner suggested here.

Although there are many different applications of achieving the same results from many different cultures and life philosophies that had searched and reached blissful state.

The bottom line is the same, to reach the fifth layer of blissful body is the best of rewards, but not everyone is destined for that path, for it is a lifetime of servitude to fellow man and the universe without once indulging the self.  A calling of such a servitude can never be mistaken or shaken off from ones consciousness –the forth layer of such a person would already be highly active and working hard to ensure that the mind follow suit.  More interestingly, the other monks will know you were born and will come looking for you to join them, it all sounds a little surreal, but believe it or not, I had the pleasure of meeting such a person while on my own journey of self discovery.

He was a little boy and Tibetan monks had come to visit his parents before he was four years of age to inform them of his destiny.

However, operating with the forth layer active and in balance with all other multidimensional layers will still be just as rewarding and fulfilling, the difference between the two is simply more human skills and capabilities, which will not be missed for they will not be needed for everyday life.  Yet the inner power and self empowerment, the knowledge and connection, the contentment and confidence that the activation of the higher self will bring forth into your life will be more than enough to make your life a wonderfully beautiful new adventure, making every moment worth living and worth living well.

I Disagree With This Philosophy, How May One Prove It’s True?

917159315


It is every human beings right to disagree and have strong valid reason as to why?  The truth is relative and is only a matter of opinion, an opinion that would have been drawn from personal knowledge and life experiences, therefore even though one can support a relative truth during a present moment, but tomorrow more realisations can render the present truth completely invalid, so in truth nothing is concrete.

One may choose to believe in another man’s theory of the truth regarding the philosophy of life, after all it all depends on ones own truth and personal journey, perhaps one man’s truth is another man’s lie, but that doesn’t make it any less truthful or any more so.  That is the beauty of philosophy for it reflects the intricacies of life in how simple and yet intensely complex it can be.

As a yoga teacher’s teacher, to create the lifestyle philosophy program called ‘AwakeConBal’ gave me great pleasure.  A lifestyle that was born from yogic philosophy and life views of the past few thousand years of accumulative experiences and information.

AwakeConBal Lifestyle is also born from personal experiences and knowledge that came to pass through many hours of meditation, contemplation and research.  Yet still every single person who entries the journey of self-discovery, their own truth will shine through and new realisations will be born that will lead them onto the path they were destined to walk.

Philosophies breed truths regarding every thought, movement and being in our individual universe and collective universe, however such theories could never come to light if we sat and did nothing.  The only way one can prove if a statement is true or not, is to try the experience and see for oneself if the ideas suggested were indeed true or just a figment of the imagination.  Always keeping in mind that every human truth can be empathised by many and not at all by others.
