'Originating Spirit' Articles
Originating spirit is what tells us that it’s really more important to have peace in our homes than to win our arguments. Choosing to decide against your originating spirit is a choice, but if you won’t follow your own, you will be following someone else’s, I promise.
Impulse comes before feeling. Feeling is a spirit informing you of its presence. Impulse is your spirit informing you of itself. Your spirit is your originating force, and when you are in harmony with it, it ceases to seem so small and quiet. Impulses grow coral reefs. They carve great rivers, and balance the rhythms of the earths flows, forever allowing re-creation, and it is recreation. I love it.
You have an endless fount of the infinite within you. So don’t worry, be crazy, and then crazy will take on a whole new meaning.
“…tapping into the essence of originating Spirit, emulating the attributes of the creative force of intention, and manifesting into your life anything that you desire that’s consistent with the universal mind…” Dr. Wayne Dyer, The Power of Intention
“If I stay in harmony with my originating Spirit, that invisible All-Creating Force will go to work on my behalf.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
I am venturing into a sort of complex area. We are often very used to looking at our own behaviour more from an externalized view. We are so used to it that we don’t often see that our perception is disconnected from our internal being. That we are seeing more how the world works and little or nothing of our own being. It‘s like we come to see life as a big McDonalds menu, and we lose sight of the fact that is us on the other side of the counter taking the order. The options as we are taught… Seek More
Connecting one to one is for understanding. That is the purpose, and really it’s the purpose to any human interaction. In the broader sense, they call it love. But the originating spirit in us, the level of consciousness that precedes our ideation about communication and life itself, is rarely apprehended or approached with much understanding. It isn’t “rational” so it’s judged poorly, but it isn’t rational because its nature is inclusive rather than divisive. Rationality is inherently divisionary. Categorizing? Yes, and we don’t listen to this originating part of ourselves until things “make sense”, and often exclude its guidance because… Seek More
We plan too much and never live in the moment, and what does this planning ever really merit? Has anyone found meaning in plans that I don’t know about? But surely planning is important if we want to live? If no-one ever planted an apple tree intending for someone to eat apples in the future? That is not planning, that is knowing. Even our instincts grasp cause and effect. To use the Chinese term, it’s a knowing of the Tao or natural way that no amount of words can effectively speak of, but we know very intimately anyway. Planning is… Seek More
When you succeed at a goal even though it didn’t go like you planned, do you gain as much as if everything goes according to plan? Do you learn anything from your successes? You learn more from disasters, and your originating spirit doesn’t actually care about anything other than the goal or the finished product. The reason it doesn’t care about anything other than the goal, because everything else is false. It’s fears and ideas in your own thinking. It cares about you and the goal is you. You are the point of everything. This is why some part of… Seek More
What would life be like if everyone had a job they loved from their spirit? It‘s really crazy that we live the majority of our life “putting in hours” to get money. And doing things that seen in the big picture we would not approve of another doing. Maybe in Second Life we find people more true to their spirit? I think Second Life has potential. It gets away from our modern version of the Roman gladiatorial games. This is why newbies either really love Second Life or hate it. It‘s powerful either way. Bread and circuses. Money and circuits.… Seek More
Spirit was originally the concept of an active agent. Spirit was anything that caused things to happen and was not some abstract, lifeless force. Quite the opposite. In the old world, things being guided by life was just a given. Our ancestors had good instincts, even if they were mostly busy surviving. They also had plenty of time to reflect. They were very in touch with their world, even if it was mostly the sky and the field they tended. They were still very aware of what they were doing. Now, we are very aware of our thinking, but what… Seek More
Anyone not have impulses? I know I do, and aren’t artists known for being impulsive? It’s almost a stereotype. Well, it is true, and any artist can tell you the difference between you and them is not what’s in your head, but how they feel about it. For an artist, an impulse is powerful like feeling a steady rain. For others they are inclined to do as they are taught. Grin and bear the rain, because they have “more important” things to do. They aren’t supposed to be responsive, and someone else is always responsible. We can all be artists. I… Seek More
The literal meaning of cult is a body of practices. Cult culture. The culture cult is a huge cult, and they fear cultists. Cultists are doing culture a huge favour. They need the cultists to believe their cult is sane, because culture and our educated thinking only seems stable in the contrast, not by itself. If we stop and look at our lives, and the self we are told we are… How many people feel like they’re crazy? I am being told I am sane by professionals. Should I be scared? It’s maybe a little bit of a problem, but… Seek More
Your memory, as we are taught to use it, has been taken up with your thinking. It wasn’t meant for that. Memories original purpose was to allow ourselves to retain impulses and sensory impressions. To keep us in touch with our inner and outer worlds. Not to be a stage for us to rehearse our thinking. Like perfume of food, they say perfumes have a memory and foods have an aftertaste. Well, the memory is the aftertaste of the immortal ambrosia of Cerridwens brew from the Celtic myth. Memory is to preserve inspiration. It’s not meant to keep anything about… Seek More
