Despite claims by some therapeutic disciplines such as hypnosis and NLP, mind-personality cannot reprogam itself. Mind cannot reprogram mind. All such efforts produce at best a surface effect that is eventually undone and overwritten by the re-emergence of remaining deep programming that mind therapies cannot reach. Only Divine Consciousness can permanently reprogam mind ...
Until we awaken from our sleepwalking slumber party – the experience of life for many – we usually either indulge our judgements of other people as being right or wrong, good or bad (for example, acting them out through road rage and domestic violence), suppress them, or attempt to change and get rid of them.
The Sacred Heart meditations are meditations that guide you into relaxing and resting into the feeling of Being ... which will bring about the fulfillment of all desire (wanting) and the end of poverty consciousness.
There's been much talk and much writing about "the power of now" since 1997 when Eckhart Tolle wrote his book of the same name, and even more perhaps about "the power of awareness" since 1952 when Neville Goddard brought that term into the world via his classic book.
The principle of the "witness" (or observer) who is aware of the entire realm of human experience, is well-known in spiritual circles and the worlds of meditation and mindfulness. At first, for many people the witness takes the form of a mental concept, which, although not the whole truth, is a step up in consciousness.
Self-inquiry differs from all other meditations that I'm aware of because all the others require us to dedicate a period of time to their practice, need a quiet place, entail closing our eyes, and demand the removal of external distractions to be fully effective – or even able to be performed at all.
It seems to me that it's only the illusory "doer", or ego, that suffers. So when the notion of being the doer dissipates, through Self-inquiry, there is no-one left to suffer, which I believe is what Buddha pointed us to – the bliss of nirvana ...
Self-inquiry has been increasingly coming into human consciousness for around 100 years or so, since Sri Ramana Maharshi began teaching it in the early part of the last century. People flocked from all over India and even from Europe and America to sit with him. And gradually his message began to spread.
Sittting on the summit of Arunachala back in 2005 it came to me that I, as Conscious Being, had not moved even so much as a fraction of a millimetre. Only my body had travelled thousands of miles from England to sit on India's holy mountain.
In Your Destiny is Your Choice meditation, my guiding words assume that the essence of who and what we share as our mutual I AM Consciousness can manifest as the person you would love to be, who lives the life you would love to live.
There are a number of principles, and a fundamental paradigm shift, that set the "Your Destiny is Your Choice" meditation apart from other manifestation processes. As far as I know it is unique.
Self-inquiry first guides us to know who and what we truly are as pure I AM Consciousness, the silence of our mutual One Heart. When we devote ourselves to living from this Consciousness our lives unfold spontaneously, easefully and effortlessly in ways that are in the best interests of everyone and all life ...
Perpetual peace – the silent stillness of no-thought – cannot be found, brought about, gained or achieved through any practice or technique done by mind. This is the dilemma brought about in some novice mindfulness practitioners by the word "mind"fulness. It is a word coined in the early 20th Century by a writer who needed … Continue reading The peaceful Heart of mindfulness
Our ability to listen deeply to what other people say, and don't say, is incredibly important.
The skill enables us to enjoy quality personal and professional relationships.
And there is more we can listen to ...
A mindful healing conversation is a two-way relationship in which both people listen and, when appropriate, ask questions.
A key difference between a healing conversation and an ordinary conversation is that we value our subjective intuitive insights, not only objective intellectual analysis ...

How can a relationship weather the storms, even hurricanes, of conditioned thoughts and emotions that inevitably arise when two people come together in intimacy?
The answer in my experience is unconditional Conscious Love.
Nothing else has the power to take us through the emotional storms to the peace, joy and freedom that await us ...
The core of Self-inquiry, the most fundamental principle, is that of asking ourselves, "What is the truth?"
The second question of inquiry is "What is the truth of who and what I AM?"
