Increase and Widen Your Desires

Nisargadatta Maharaj was equally insistent on channeling desire toward the Self: “Increase and widen your desires till nothing but reality can fulfill them. It is not desire that is wrong, but its narrowness and smallness. Desire is devotion. By all means be devoted to the Real, the Infinite, the eternal Heart of Being. Transform desire into love. All you want is to be happy… To imagine that some little things - food, sex, power, fame - will make you happy is to deceive yourself. Only something as vast and deep as your Real Self can make you truly and lastingly happy.”

In Today’s Rush, We All Think Too Much

Just be, is something I frequently see in today's media but does anybody really, know what that means? If we do not know the immediate answer, some of our social circles may provide a definition, or a quick google search will produce a laundry list of information but what does it mean to you? Right now, how would you define "Just be?" If you read a sign that said "Just Be," how would you respond or how would you feel? Would it blur into the background with all the other words that occupy signs that inundate us daily?

Real Love Begins

I also waited for a life partner to enjoy life. His love would protect me. I had no guarantee that I would not hurt again, but if there was one person guaranteed to love me, then I could endure other disappointments that life would throw at me. I wouldn’t go camping, to concerts, or even to the Sunday market unless I had someone with me who was “the one.” I missed out on so much while I waited for the love blanket to protect me so I could feel safe enough to discover myself. I was a love addict. And I didn’t know it.

Man’s True Nature

A man’s true nature reflects very strongly in his plans for the future. If he aspires firstly to spiritual progress and builds his life around his spiritual aspirations. His plans are not necessarily based on the things he wants to acquire in life, or the positions he wants to hold in life, but rather on cultivating a life that allows himself to develop happiness and spirituality, and of course bring that into the life of the people he shares his time with. The plans he does make on decisions to give to charity, to visit sacred places, to engage in various activities to clear his consciousness.

The Art of Peace

The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art of Peace to all that you encounter. One does not need buildings, money, power, or status to practice the Art of Peace. Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is the place to train. All things, material and spiritual, originate from one source and are related as if they were one family. The past, present, and future are all contained in the life force. The universe emerged and developed from one source, and we evolved through the optimal process of unification and harmonization.

Betty Friedan and Masculinity

Some words are still relevant today. This quote was taken from The Christian Science Monitor (1 April 1974). Masculinity has been something I have been contemplating for a while now. I would like to explore what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Is masculinity inherently bad? As masculine energy continues to be suppressed by ourselves, our peers, societal norms, and the women we love. How does a man express who he is? How does he weave through the fabric of patriarchal norms and gender stereotypes? What does the future of masculinity look like?

What Do You Need to Hear? (video)

When I think about my own life, I have had such a hard time expressing how much somebody has meant to me. I a little bit better now than I was yesterday. It's a path that has slowly gotten better but every now and then I get stuck expressing my love. Why? It always comes down to fear. I'm scared of the response, I fear that it will not be reciprocated, fear of feeling awkward, foolish or inappropriate.

Send Me an Angel and My Thoughts (video)

I watched an old movie called Rad, I haven't watched that in 6 or 7 years. If you aren't familiar, It is a movie about BMX Freestyle Biking with a character who overcomes the obstacles that are trying to prevent him participating in the BMX race called Helltrack. It was fun to reminisce and remember my friends and me at the time sitting in front of a TV mesmerized, thinking that this was the coolest movie ever. As soon as it was done, we would immediately try to recreate the tricks we just watched only to suffer road rash, scratched elbows and wounded egos. We were 11 at the time, so I don't really think it was as bad as I remember.
