Of Beliefs and Chasing Tails

You're walking in the park when you spot a dog chasing his tail. Why is he doing that, you wonder. As you have the power to communicate with animals, you decide to ask the dog.

"Hey dog, come over here!"

The dog trots over.

"Why are you chasing your tail?"
"Woof, woof!"
"Sorry, I meant to give you the power of speech. There you go."
"Woof! Oh wow, I can speak! This is great! Ahem! Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do."
"Yes you can talk and sing, but don't get carried away," you say. "Now answer my question. Why are you chasing your tail?"
"Because."
"Because it's fun, because you're trying to bite your tail? What? There must be a reason!" you say.
"Does there have to be a reason for chasing my tail?"
"I suppose not."
"Well then." The dog leap at you and reaches over to lick your face. "Speaking is fun, isn't it?"
"I guess," you sigh. "As you were!"
"What does that mean?"
"It means you can return to what you were doing. But before you go, I'm taking back the power of speech as you don't seem to have the intelligence for it to be of any use."
"Woof, woof!"

It's no use sniggering, human; you are no more intelligent. In your own way you are chasing tails. Your life is about chasing tails; practising meaningless rituals.

How so?

The other day on my travels, we drove by a Poppy factory.

Poppy: A symbol of death. Red poppies are a symbol of Remembrance Day (11 November), which commemorates the dead of the First and Second World Wars. Symbols dictionary
In the UK, from early November to 11 November or a few days after, people wear red poppies on their lapels.

As we drove by the factory I looked through the window and could see people in an office on their computers. Imagine, a whole business set up just to commemorate the war!

If you have ever watched or participated in a Remembrance Day Service it is the same old, same old. I mean that literally; old people who had been in the war, a few from the First. The service is supposed to help us remember the wars so it doesn't happen again. Oh yeah? How come there are still wars going on in the world, as I write this? What happens when the survivors of these wars, and their offsprings, have all popped their clogs? Are they still going to be commemorating those wars? Some way to achieve peace - remember wars.

My point is the poppy business is built on sand, nothing. People are earning their living based on remembering wars. They are chasing tails.

I once watched a documentary about this woman who has made it her life's purpose to expose drug manufacturers who are sending counterfeit drugs to developing countries in Africa. I also heard that an attempt was made recently to assassinate her but she survived. What difference does it make anyway? Drugs are only as powerful as your faith in them. Life is about beliefs. Even if you don't have a belief in something you still have a belief that you don't believe in that thing. To need drugs you have to believe in sickness and that you are ill anyway and that the drugs, or whatever therapy, can make you well. The drug contents will not change the truth that drugs are intrinsically nothing. Even if drugs are just made up of sugar or are "fake", they are still nothing. A nothing is only a something if you believe in it.

Reminds me of a story I read in Al Koran's book "Bring Out the Magic in Your Mind" which I've written about in another article:

"Bring Out the Magic in Your Mind.” A woman is dreading doing the household chores. She remembers she has an energy pill in her pocket that someone had given her. She swallows the pill and immediately has tons of energy. She does the work effortlessly. Later, she discovers the actual energy pill in her other pocket. She had taken her child’s sweet, believing it to be the energy pill." Self Belief
As you can see, the pill was only as good as the woman's belief.

Right now there are so many different types of therapies around to cure humanity of all ills. This simply means that humanity holds different beliefs such as pills, complementary medicine, therapies, energy healing, spiritual healing, faith healing, channelling, prayer or even a God. There are some healings modalities that claim you don't have to believe in them for them to work. That's poppycock (no pun intended)! Of course you believe in something; you just believe that you don't have to believe in the healing for it to work.

Some healers claim to be working with ascended masters, from Jesus to St Germain to Angels. Others claim to be channelling information from Jesus to ETs. Whatever! It's up to individuals whatever they want to believe.

Even if you are someone who believes in nothing, you still have a belief.

Whether you believe in pills, a healer or teaching, you are believing in a nothing passing off as a something. It is only your belief that makes it something otherwise it will be a nothing. Consider the following:

"And when he [Jesus] was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief." (Matthew 13: 54-58)
As you can see, Jesus in the scriptures was only as powerful as people's beliefs in him. Before he performed most of his healings, he would ask whether the one wanting to be healed believed. He couldn't do "mighty works" in his own country because they didn't believe in him.

Someone who believes he is sick and someone who believes nothing is wrong with him have something in common: belief. If you can believe you are sick, you can easily reverse it and believe you are well i.e. nothing is wrong with you. Belief is belief whether you use it for fear or love.

So what we define as life all stems from nothing. Only one's belief makes a nothing into a something. In the book, Autobiography of a Yogi, the author, Yogananda, interviews Kashi Moni, the life-companion of Lahiri Mahasaya. She said that for years she didn't realise her husband was God-realised until she finally "woke up" and was initiated into Kriya Yoga. Kashi describes one experience:

"I will confess a sin which I committed against my guru-husband. Some months after my initiation, I began to feel forlorn and neglected. One morning Lahiri Mahasaya entered this little room to fetch an article; I quickly followed him. Overcome by violent delusion, I addressed him scathingly.

"'You spend all your time with the disciples. What about your responsibilities for your wife and children? I regret that you do not interest yourself in providing more money for the family.'

"The master glanced at me for a moment, then lo! he was gone. Awed and frightened, I heard a voice resounding from every part of the room:

"'It is all nothing, don't you see? How could a nothing like me produce riches for you?'

"'Guruji,' I cried, 'I implore pardon a million times! My sinful eyes can see you no more; please appear in your sacred form.'

"'I am here.' This reply came from above me. I looked up and saw the master materialize in the air, his head touching the ceiling. His eyes were like blinding flames. Beside myself with fear, I lay sobbing at his feet after he had quietly descended to the floor. An Interview with the Sacred Mother
Let me just make it very clear that I do believe in God and I also know God is a nothing. By this I mean, He is empty of beliefs and concepts. He is a nothing, but you can make the nothing into a something. If you believe God is Love, He is. If you believe God is Spirit, He is. If you believe God is Light, He is. Speaking of which, it's time I asked the God I believe in to put some light into the matter (pun definitely intended).

"Hey God!"
"Yes, my child."
"None of this 'yes, my child' baloney. I'm going to ask you some tough questions and I expect you to be serious about this."
"OK, fire away."
"Tell me, did you or did you not create the universe?"
"Yes I did and still am."
"OK. How did you create it?"
"Well, er, hum, it's a bit complicated for you to understand."
"Try me."
"It just happened."
"That's ridiculous! The universe didn't just happen, it must have come from somewhere."
"I assure you, it just happened."
"I can't accept that! Isn't it true that the universe is composed of light?"
"If that's what you believe, I can't possibly comment."
"Isn't it true that the universe is a thought you're holding in your mind?"
"If that's what you believe, I can't possibly comment."
"Isn't it also true that you are appearing as the many forms?"
"If that's what you believe..."
"Yeah, yeah, you can't possibly comment. I get the picture. Surely, you must know something?"
"I've told you what is but you are not willing to accept it."
"OK, let's say I accept your version of events, that the universe 'just happened,' how did the idea come about?"
"The idea?"
"You know, the idea of the universe."
"It just happened."
"Are you saying it popped out of nothing?"
"Yes."
"What about you, what is your origin? Who created you?"
"Er, well, I don't have an origin as such. I simply am."
"This is annoying, very annoying. You come from nothing, you have an idea that comes out of nothing and out of that nothing the universe appeared. And you expect me to believe that?"
"I don't expect you to believe anything. You are free to believe in whatever you like."
"I see."
"Any more questions?"
"Actually I have one, but it's more of a favour really."
"Ask away."
"Will you please transform me into a dog?"
"Do you mind if I ask why?"
"So I can chase my own tail. Why else?"

I believe in Nothing.
I am Nothing.

What's It All About?

What's it all about, Alfie?
Is it just for the moment we live?
What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?
Are we meant to take more than we give
or are we meant to be kind?
And if only fools are kind, Alfie,
then I guess it's wise to be cruel.
And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie,
what will you lend on an old golden rule?
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie,
I know there's something much more,
something even non-believers can believe in.
I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love we just exist, Alfie.
Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie.
When you walk let your heart lead the way
and you'll find love any day, Alfie, Alfie. What's it all about, Alfie?
Imagine if you had a genie who could meet all your needs in an instant without needing to know the how, would you let the genie do the work or would you try to figure things out for yourself?

Isn't life like that? There is an "Intelligence" who does stuff. You can wrack your brain for ages and you will never really know how things happen.

A few days ago I was engrossed reading a friend's blog which I think is wonderful. I was fast running out of time on the Internet and needed the time extended. What happened? The time extended automatically. How did this happen? I don't know!

Part of a friend's comment in response to the article, What is Intelligence? was:

"The highest wisdom of all may be realizing that we aren't as smart as we think we are." jmarc
Too right.

Nuff said.

Enocia

What is Intelligence?

The other day I was watching the quiz show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" with my mother. One question was about some horror movie director. Mum knew the answer and said the answer was so obvious everyone should know it.

"Well, I didn't," I said.
"How can you not know?"
"Because I don't."
"That's a bit of trivia that most people know."
"Well I don't know trivia," I said.

I have never taken the IQ test and if I do I'm bound to fail. I reckon if my intelligence was measured against the human definition of intelligence then, as we say in the UK, I'm as thick (stupid) as two short planks. I don't see any point in knowing trivia; that's what the Internet is for.

I have never enjoyed collecting data just for the sake of it. At secondary school, my favourite subject was French. I don't know why, it just seemed easy and fun to learn French. I was always top of the class in French. Every year I received a prize for French. Apart from that I was lucky to be in the top 5. In the A-stream, we didn't have much of a choice when it came to what to study for our final year exams. It was either the Arts or the Sciences. We had a choice between Geography or Physics. I couldn't stand Geography and wasn't too keen on Physics either. I chose the lesser of two evils: Physics. We had to choose between Chemistry or History. History was a nightmare as far as I could see so I chose Chemistry. I even chose Additional Maths over another subject, possibly Bible Knowledge. Biology, Literature, English Language, and Maths were compulsory. If I had a choice I would have dropped Literature as I didn't see the point in studying Shakespeare. As far as I was concerned, the guy couldn't even write English; and what use is Shakespeare to an African? French was my saving grace.

At my final year exams, I ended up scraping through Chemistry and failed Physics, Maths and Additional Maths. When I came to England I had to retake all the subjects. Again, I failed Physics and Maths. I finally passed Maths at the third attempt.

It's never too late to discover what you're really good at. I discovered social science in college, though I focused more on media and culture. My passion for French waned somewhat. I also realised I was very good at seeing meanings imbedded in texts and all around us. Then again, I had to learn to let go of meanings as one can get trapped in meanings.

So human intelligence-wise, I'm quite thick. I don't use big words because I don't know big words. I reckon my vocabulary is about 1,000 words, if that. OK that's not strictly true. I went to college so I do know some big words like: plagiarism, patriarchy, homogeneity, diaspora, multidisciplinary, didactic, dialectic, polemics, oxymoronic, discursive, bombastic - to name a few. I tend to live by the maxim: KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid.

What does intelligence mean for me?

Intelligence is the ability to release thoughts and experiences at the drop of a hat.

Intelligence is asking a question and being still so I can receive the answer in thought; or being able to attract the exact experience in response to my question.

Intelligence is being able to connect with people.

Intelligence is always being inspired to produce great articles.

Intelligence is being in bliss.

I reckon God must have zero IQ. Can you imagine the omnipotent being cares about human doctrines? Why would God want to know stuff? All He needs to say is "Let there be such and such" and it is. I reckon the reason why God wants us to let go and let Him do the work is because He can't explain how He does stuff in words. I bet He doesn't even know how stuff happens. Things just happen.

Because I still have the tendency to analyse stuff, I believe this raises my IQ to about 10, which is bad news. At least an IQ of 10 means I'll still fail IQ tests, which has to be a good thing.

I am a thicko and proud of it.

Déjà Vu

Every day I go through a ritual. I moisturise my face and neck before putting on my makeup. I don't use fancy products, just baby lotion which I use for my body and face. The moment I'm about to put on my makeup I remember I haven't put on any moisturiser. Just as I'm about to apply some I remember I've already put some on. There have been a few occasions when I've applied moisturiser twice and about to apply some a third time then I remember.

That's the problem with letting go of each moment; there is a tendency for me to forget what I've done previously.

Yeah, life is a series of déjà vus.

Have a good day everyone.

I wish you all a good day.

Acceptance

One thing I know is that you can't force people to change to meet your expectations. The best you can do is to accept them and love them for who they are. After all, we are all the Infinite One in manifestation.

I have learned to accept my mother for who she is. She is not interested in my ways. She sometimes listens to my ideas just to humour me and then she's back doing her own thing, which is cool.

At the same time, my mother now accepts me for who I am. She knows not to impose her ways on me. She has now accepted that I am one of those people who will eat anything and stay the same; and I will go for years and still look ageless; and I certainly don't do medication.

Anyway, the other day she asked me to buy some toilet tissues as we were running low. I realised too late that the tissues I bought were scented. I guess the manufacturers realised there was an untapped market of scented tissues waiting to be exploited. They may have a point there; it's best to be prepared, you never know when someone will want to have a sniff of your backside, I suppose. I said to mum that I should have bought the unscented as these ones might be unpalatable as I love snacking on tissue paper.

Mum said, "You'd better have some of the unscented one then before it finishes."

This made me laugh. "Mum, it's good to see you've finally come to terms with my madness."

"Well, what else can I do?" she said. "I can't change you. If you can't beat them, join them."

Yippee! Someone's finally accepted that one can eat tissue paper and still be healthy.

I reckon the scented tissue paper will taste OK. If I can eat pilau rice which has been fragranced with cinnamon and saffron, scented toilet tissue is a piece of piss.*

Acceptance is allowing your loved one to chew on the cud if that makes her happy.

With love,
Enocia

Two Short Planks

There is a forum I participate in where the members are really witty. You get more and more creative at comebacks and put downs, all done in jest of course. Sometimes we play a game of the "battle of the sexes." Today's theme is male stupidity. Here's something I wrote in response to someone, which has to be recorded for posterity. (It has been edited for grammar).

As you already know, no you don't as you are stupid, males have XY and female XX chromosomes. Science tells us the Ys are shorter than the Xs. Do you want to know why? Because men are as thick as TWO SHORT planks.* Females are so compassionate they have offered to share their superior intellect with males, which enables males to have the XY chromosomes. Without females, the world will be in a bigger mess than it is now.
Hehehe!

Thank you guys for allowing me to flex my wit muscles. You are a lot of fun.

Love always,
Enocia

* The phrase "as thick as two short planks" is a slang which means "very stupid."

The Pedestal

I know it's so tempting to put me on a pedestal. But please, don't do that! You may rest assured that the pedestal I'm now on is a lot more superior than any you would dream of.

I am What I am.

The Art of Letting Go

"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend." Bruce Lee
I'm sure most people have heard the cliché: Let Go and Let God. Yawn! Well, I'm bored so I'm going to give another slant on things.

The Emptiness/Void is the only real. Some call the Emptiness, that which is without concepts and beliefs, the Clear Light or God. No one has monopoly of the Light. Everything is the Light and that includes you, me, all forms. The Light is formless and, as Bruce Lee states, can be anything. It is the realm where all things are possible.

Every moment, my senses are bombarded with pictures, sounds, smells, tastes and feelings. I then have a choice whether I wish to enjoy the moment by extending it to a longer moment or releasing that moment back into the Emptiness.

What do I mean by moment? A moment is one's intent to have an experience. The intent and subsequent experience arise as one. In other words, the intent of a thing is the thing itself. Some moments last for a moment, some a lot longer and others for an eternity. Within the longer moment are sub-moments. Bear with me, I'm not speaking gibberish!

One such example of a longer moment is the human experience which lasts as long as one is holding on to the belief that one is human. If you "die" and still very much human in outlook, you will continue to experience yourself as human in another reality for as long as possible.

Within the longer moment of humanity are sub-moments. Let’s say you meet someone you like. That moment starts when you first make eye contact. If you both like each other and want to pursue the relationship, the moment is extended to you dating for however long you date. If you wish to take it further by getting married, the moment is further extended. What if you decide to raise kids, that moment is extended. You have now committed to being parents as long as you are playing at being human.

Within this longer moment of marriage and parenthood are sub-moments. In these moments you have to learn to let go of moments whether they are happy or unhappy. So what if you have the odd barney now and again? When it's over, let it go and return to the Emptiness. I know people who hold grudges and keep reminding the other of something he has forgotten. While one person is in bliss, the other is still feeling angry or bitter. And we all know what happens when you're always angry, don't we? On the other hand, if you are holding on to happy moments you might not want to open yourself up to other new moments. Then again, who is to say one shouldn't hold on to happy moments? Whatever works.

"It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb cholesterol if you take it from another person's plate." Dave Barry
There is the belief that people who are skinny have a high metabolism and they can eat as much as they can without putting on weight. I don't have that belief but I don't put on weight either. I treat each meal as a separate event. When I'm having my dinner I am experiencing a longer moment and sub-moments. In the longer moment, the moment lasts as long as the meal. In sub-moments, I am treating the food as empty, meaning while I might be enjoying the food, I don't see the food as being good or bad; or as having minerals, calories, additives or whatever. The food simply is. I relish each mouthful then I let it go. When the plate is empty and I don't feel like I want anymore, I let go of the whole experience. If I fancy eating five minutes later, I don't consider the food as adding to what I've eaten before; there is nothing to add to.

On the other hand, let us consider someone who puts on weight. She might believe she has a slow metabolism; or that food contains additives which make her gain weight. Well, if you see eating as adding to yourself, is it any wonder you're fat? I'm surprised you're not bigger than you are. Science says that the body accepts what it needs and what it doesn't need comes out as waste products. After a few hours, you are hungry again and you need to add more to yourself, and so the cycle goes on.

This is not to say I don't go to the toilet. To a certain extent, I must still have the belief that the body has to release what it doesn't need, otherwise I wouldn't still need to go; and every moment lasts as long as the pee or number two. :-D. But I know that every time I eat something, it has no connection to a previous experience. Every moment is new. This is why I can continue to enjoy chocolate because it is always a new experience.

Every day is a long moment which has sub-moments. Just because today is 28 November doesn't mean it is more than 27 November. Each day is discrete; a day only has a connection to the other day if you think it does. If you believe every year you add more to your years, which makes you older, then you will look old. If you believe that every experience adds more to your life, then you will feel heavy as if you're carrying the world's weight on your shoulders. As time goes by, you will get slower and slower and then your body says "I've had enough!" and packs up. I'm aware that there are some who "die" at a younger age. There is obviously a belief in cause/effect there somewhere whether it is manifested as disease, accidents or death.

Like I said, I have hundreds of experiences every day that arise out of Emptiness and dissolve into Emptiness. Only when I choose to extend the moment of an experience does it stand out and is experienced as a form, which I record for posterity on this website. Here's one such moment.

Yesterday on a bus ride I noticed an advert on an inter-city coach for fares costing £1. Wow! That's cheaper than bus rides in London, which cost £1.20 per ride. If you need more than one bus then you have to pay the same fare every time you hop on a bus; or get a season ticket which is a better deal. I made a mental note to check out the coach company's website for further details.

A few minutes after I had the thought, our bus driver told us he was terminating at the next stop and asked us to get on the bus behind, which we did. I found an empty seat upstairs. Behind me, a man and a woman were discussing life in general. The man talked about where he was spending Christmas. He said he's booked a return ticket to Bath and it only cost him £2. My ears pricked. Wow, that's cheap! Bath is approximately 125 miles from where I live. I'll check that coach company as well.

As you can see, the coach fares moment has lasted for as long as this post remains on this website.

Where does memory fit into this?

A few weeks ago a friend emailed me in response to my email, which was a response to his email. I couldn't remember writing the email. I read the words and the words sounded like they could have come from anyone. How can this be? Then I realised my friend has two email addresses. We usually communicate with his other address. He had sent me the original email from his other address that I instantly responded to. He said the email had gone astray and he received it weeks later. By that time I couldn't remember receiving the email let alone. But there was a part of me that remembered, the Keeper of all information.

There is a collective Memory Body that holds all of human experiences, rather like the Internet. The way I see it, why clutter myself with memory when I can let it go and only call upon the memory when I need to. These writings are a kind of memory bank. Once I've written them, I let them go. From time to time, I recall an article that relates to what I'm currently working on which I add as a link. I tend not to read articles I've written unless someone has sent me a comment and I need to re-read what I had written for clarity sake.

About once a month I delete all emails in my sent-box. I also do a general house-keeping of emails I've received. I only keep useful attachments, photos friends have sent me or jokes. I also keep copies of my writings. Apart from that I tend not to hold on to stuff. I prefer staying in the Emptiness.

The art of letting go is the ability to be the Emptiness while choosing to enjoy moments of creation. If the moment is one I want to experience for a longer moment, I put out the intent. The intent of having an experience is the very thing itself which either manifests instantly or takes "time." I then trust in the intent, which is the power of the Emptiness to take on the form of the intent. I let go of the moment and rest in the Emptiness.

Did you know I am living simultaneous lives? I am a daughter, a sister, a writer, a friend, playing at being a human, but I am also the Infinite Light.

We are all the Infinite Light.

Right then, this is one moment that is going to last forever. Time to be the Emptiness.

With love,
Enocia

The Purpose of Life - Revisited

If you are one who lives in a world of causes, then life is an opportunity to express the one true cause - Love.

If you are one who lives in a world of the causeless then life is whatever is happening at the moment. Thus, life for me at this moment is about expressing thoughts on the Internet.

Oh well, about time I expressed life as something or the other.

Enocia

Just Because

An itch doesn't necessarily lead to a scratch.

Laughing doesn't necessarily mean I am happy.

Being in love doesn't necessarily mean there is an object of my affection.

Feeling joyful doesn't necessarily mean there is something to be joyful about.

Just because I am eating doesn't necessarily mean I am hungry.

I love you not because of your humour, looks, bank account, or our shared beliefs. I love you just because.

Life in the causeless realm happens just because it is.

No Leg to Stand On

While you are out you find everyone staring at you. Some people are even pointing in your direction and having a good laugh. What's going on? Is it what you've got on? A boy comes up to you.

"How come you're moving without legs?" he says.
"Of course I've got legs."
"No you don't," the boy says. "There's just the top half of your body and the rest of you is missing."
"I assure you," you insist, "I do have legs. Can you see me lifting my left leg?"
"No, there's just empty space."
"Can you feel me kicking your shin with my right leg?"
"No."
"Can't you feel anything?"
"No. I'm off! You are nuts!"

You're puzzled and ask a woman close by to tell you what she sees but she runs away from you. You ask a passer-by what he sees.

"I see you're moving with no legs," he says.

You finally realise that everyone is seeing you without legs. But in your reality, you can see and feel your legs. Which is real? Your perception or other people's perception of you? If you accept other people's perceptions, you are legless and you shouldn't be walking, in the human sense. If you accept your reality, you are perfectly fine and it's the rest of the world that's gone mad.

In the realm of the cause, there is always a physical, emotional or mental cause for everything. You have a cold and there has to be a cause. It could be due to the weather, your emotions, or your thoughts which made you susceptible to catching a cold.

Within the realm of the causeless, there is no cause. This means the moment that finds you with a runny nose has no relevance to the last moment or any other moments for that matter. You can now choose whether you want to continue sniffing or to release it.

You can't have it both ways, however. You can't live life from the cause and causeless at the same time. You have to choose.

The realm of the cause is the dominant reality. Follow any religion or spiritual discipline and they are all based on the notion that one has to understand truth in order to have a demonstration. Every cause has an effect. Practise makes perfect. Even if you want divine intervention, you have to invite God through prayer and expect the equivalent result. The causeless realm is like someone moving about with a body and no legs. It makes no sense to the realm of the cause, therefore, it doesn't exist.

As you stand in front of the mirror, you can finally see what others are seeing, that you don't have legs. How do you cope with this realisation?

Who needs legs to walk, anyway? You are causeless.

Without a Cause

"The universe has no limits, and the possibilities at play in the universe at large are indeed incommensurable. So don’t fall prey to the axiom, 'I believe only what I see,' because it is the dumbest stand one can possibly take." (Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity)
My experiences can be put into two categories or realms: that of the cause and the causeless. In the cause, things happen because of something I have done. An experience is the outcome of a thought I had previously or a choice I made. The problem with the cause is that it keeps you stuck in one way of experiencing the universe. Underneath the cause is what I consider to be ultimate reality, which is beyond cause and effect - the causeless realm.

Let's say you're stuck in traffic. You could come up with many plausible reasons why you are stuck in traffic. It could be because it is rush hour, there might be engineering works, some kind of incident or whatever. Why are you stuck in this traffic? Is the universe reflecting your thoughts? Is the universe delaying your journey for a reason? Even when you believe Love to be the only cause there is always a cause.

What if you were to know that there is no cause to anything? This means this moment has no connection at all to anything that has happened previously or any thoughts you have had. It is a new stand-alone moment. You can now choose whether you want to experience the reality of traffic or be released. If you choose to be released the traffic dissolves in front of your eyes, like magic.

The causeless realm makes no sense to the logical mind, or one looking for a cause to everything. It is a realm where there are different laws in operation. Actually, there are no laws. The causeless realm is like having a dream when one minute you are in London and the next you are in Sydney. You didn't have to travel, you were simply there spontaneously. In your dream you don't question how this happened, you accept that it is the way it is. Well, that is the way it is in the causeless realm.

Today, I received an email from a friend asking me what the best method to achieve an OOBE (out of body experience). I couldn't answer his question. I told him it just happened spontaneously. I can now sense when I'm about to have an OOBE, but how it does, I have no idea. This leads on to meditation. There are many teachings advising people that a practice, like meditation, helps you achieve inner peace and connect you to your real Self. While I agree to a certain extent, I also know there is no proof that there is a link between meditation and being the Self. I have experienced myself as the Inner Light. Was it because I had been sitting for ages in meditation or because I had been practising meditation for a long time? I can't answer that. Beside, I don't sit in meditation, I don't have a posture; I prefer to lie down on my back, and sometimes on my side. Merging with the Light happened spontaneously. I have also tried different group meditations. While it was nice, I never felt completely at ease. I found the rituals and postures distracting. I soon went back to my "no-particular-posture-way" of meditation that may or may not lead to Nirvana.

How does one experience the causeless realm? Easy. We've all experienced the causeless at one time or another. When you're happy for no reason at all, you are in the causeless realm. When you feel immense joy and love for no reason at all you are in the causeless realm. I can feel joy by just thinking of joy and I feel so much joy it's as if I can't contain it. I can feel peace in exactly the same way. Is there any point to meditation when I can achieve peace in an instant? I think not. Is there any point to studying Truth when I can be love in an instant. Absolutely, pointless.

True freedom lies within the causeless realm because it is the realm of the unconditioned and infinite possibilities. The causeless realm is the realm of "miracles" though I don't believe in miracles. Incidentally, a friend sent me a copy of this very interesting article called There are no miracles.

If we can be happy for no reason at all; if we can feel peace for no reason at all; if we can feel whole for no reason at all, what else can we experience for no reason at all? Isn't it a matter of letting go of cause and effect and letting the causeless do its thing just like it does in our sleeping dreams.

Hey, consider this. What if we are experiencing life in reverse? What if when we are awake, we are actually sleeping; and when we are sleeping is when we are awake? Interesting thought.

The universe is causeless, but we have just painted a counterfeit picture of cause and effects over it. And this counterfeit picture is doing all it can to keep the causeless realm hidden from our view.

Well, I can see reality clearly. Life is causeless.

Some Thoughts about Manifestation

"For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23: 7)

"The kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17: 21)
Two days ago I noticed a friend had a picture of himself, and some friends, on his journals. I thought one of his friends looked like John Lennon.

That evening, I pondered over the "kingdom of God" which is a real place that exists within. A while back I had a vision where I was shown how to live in that space within myself that is my God-presence. We all have this space within us. The God space is the one "I" in all. Thus, it is this One that is experiencing life as Enocia." Connecting to the one, universal "I" is the equivalent of connecting to electricity. Everyone has access to electricity, but in this reality you have to pay for the privilege. Similarly, everyone has access to the one universal "I" but unlike electricity, the universal "I" is free. You simply have to know how to connect. Another way to connect is by simply realising that there is only One in infinite manifestations.

As I live within the inner space, whatever I create is coming from oneness. There is the experience of oneness where the thought of the thing is the thing itself. Put another way, if you can think it, it already exists. If I think about a man with a red pen, it is the same as a man with a red pen. Sooner or later I’m going to see a man with a red pen.

The problem with the thought as thing is that if your thoughts manifest instantly, you don’t want to be tossed about from pillar to post because of your thoughts. Take last week as an example. I had been chatting about politics on the web with a few friends, nothing serious, just having a laugh. I went into town with the intention of going somewhere so I got on the bus going to my destination. The bus driver changed his mind and terminated elsewhere. I decided I would use the opportunity to visit the local bookshop. When I had finished in there, on my way out I bumped into a Member of Parliament, a former member of the Labour cabinet. All because of our political discussion.

As you can see, the universe is like a computer that accepts my thoughts and reflects them back as thoughts of experiences, whether it's what I want or not. This can make life seem chaotic. I could try and think as little as possible but that is impractical. Why? Because I am a writer and I express myself in words. It is therefore important that my thoughts don’t hurt others. How can I achieve this? By realising the nature of reality, which is all is One; all is Love; Love is the only Cause. Thus, all thought-forms, tangible or intangible, are Love; and Love never hurts.

For instance, I have had grit in my eye and have felt no pain because I knew the grit to be Love. I can chop onions and not expect my eyes to stream because I know onions are Love in manifestation. I can bang my head against a brick wall, accidentally of course, and not hurt because I know the wall is Love.

Yesterday, I woke up with a sense of excitement that I was going to have a lovely surprise. That old eighties song by Tiffany called I Think We're Alone Now popped in my head. The chorus goes:

Running just as fast as we can
holdin' on to one another's hand
tryin' to get away into the night
and then you put your arms around me
and we tumble to the ground
and then you say

I think we're alone now
there doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now
the beating of our hearts is the only sound
The song was going round and round in my head. Why this song and why now?

Later after I'd finished writing I headed off into town. I had no idea where I was going. Maybe, I should go to a bookshop, my favourite pastime. In my mind's eye, I saw myself in a specialist bookshop based in a health clinic. I once thought about working there as a healer. When I want to keep up to date with the many forms of therapies, it's a useful place to go and collect information. OK, that's obviously where I need to be. I arrived at the bookshop and picked up a book. I can't now recall the title. I opened a page at random and saw a chapter about someone called Drunvalo Melchizedek, who is supposed to have some kind of Melchizedek consciousness. Hmmm! Interesting. I put the book back on the shelf. On the same shelf was a book by Drunvalo Melchizedek called Living in the Heart. I decided to have a browse. Drunvalo was writing about the space within, the Kingdom of God, that he calls the "sacred heart." In one chapter, Drunvalo discusses the difference between creating with Mind and with the sacred heart. Mind creates a polarity. Thus, if you wish to experience peace, Mind will create both peace and war because that is its nature. The sacred heart is a place of unity that connects all in oneness.

At the end of the book, Drunvalo quotes the last lines from John Lennon's song Imagine:

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
As I waited for my bus I was in awe of how I had attracted everything I had been thinking about: the space within me, John Lennon. No wonder I had that Tiffany song in my head, it was to do with the heart: "the beating of our hearts is the only sound." I looked across the road and saw a chess shop. My friend, who has the picture of the John Lennon look-alike on his journals, works in a chess shop. Could this be the same shop? I crossed over to check but it wasn't.

Later I went to catch my bus home. When I am in town, I usually need 3 or 4 buses, depending on my connections. The first bus arrived as soon as I arrived at the bus stop which took me part of the journey. When I arrived at another station, my next bus arrived. When I got off that bus, my other bus was standing at the stop as if it was waiting for me. Usually, I don't bother with the last bus as it's only about 10 minutes walk home from there. But this time, the last bus was right behind us.

This is what happens when I am connected to the one "I." There is no need for me to think about anything, everything is done automatically. The Intelligence within meets all needs perfectly.

All is One; all is Love.

With love,
Enocia

The One True Cause

On the one hand, there is always a cause for a feeling, thought or experience. On the other hand, there is no cause.

Why am I feeling so miserable then?
Why do you think?
Maybe it's because I was angry with so and so and I'm now miserable;
or
I am picking up on other people's misery;
or
The weather is cold which is making me miserable;
or
It's what I'm like, happy one minute, miserable the next.
OK. What if you were feeling happy, what would be the cause of your happiness?
It could be because I am enjoying what I'm doing;
or
I am with people who make me happy;
or
I am happy because I am happy.
"I am happy because I am happy." Hold that thought.
But I am not happy right now, I feel miserable.
What if I were to tell you there is no real cause to your misery?
How could there not be a cause? I wouldn't be feeling miserable if there wasn't a cause.
I'm saying there is only one Cause and that Cause is Love. Any other cause is a figment of the imagination.
Ha, OK. If Love is the only cause, it could be that Love is causing me to feel miserable.
How so?
Love wants me to feel miserable so I can appreciate when I am feeling happy.
Love manifests as feelings of joy. Where there is joy there is no room for misery.
Huh?
Where there is Love, there is no room for anything else.
How come I am still feeling miserable?
How can you feel miserable when Love is the only Cause?
But I do feel miserable.
You can't feel miserable because Love is the only Cause.
But I'm not feeling joy, I am miserable.
You are dreaming you are miserable. Love is the only Cause.
How can I be dreaming when I am awake?
Beloved, you can be in deep sleep with your eyes wide open.
How?
Because.
You are nuts.
You are dreaming I am nuts.
OK, let's say for argument's sake, I am awake.
Then Love is the only Cause.
I still feel miserable.
Then you are asleep.
Are you saying any time I feel miserable or experience whatever is not of Love, I am asleep?
Yup.
Hmmm! I must be asleep a lot then.
Afraid so.
I would like to wake up.
Then accept Love as the one True Cause.
OK, I accept.
How are you feeling?
Well, right now I feel happy. I am not miserable.
Are you saying you are feeling happy for no reason at all?
Yeah, I guess so.
Then you are feeling the One True Cause. Good!
It's good to be awake.

Love is Always Present

Love occupies all time and space. Love is all there is.

Can you imagine what it means when we live with the realisation of Love's presence? This means that when I think of one second from now, Love is already there. Love is already in the next moment and the next. If I project into the future, I'll find Love waiting there. If I think about a past event, I'll find Love there.

What about all those scare-mongering stories of diseases, disasters and the like? Irrelevant. Love is already there.

What about the weather forecasts? Irrelevant. Love is already there.

What about worrying about how the future is going to pan out? Irrelevant. Love is already there.

What about the doctor's reports about your health? Irrelevant. Love is already there.

What about the prophecies? Irrelevant. Love is already there.

Whether you are feeling happy or sad, healthy or unhealthy, fear or love, Love is always there. Whether you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, successful or a failure, good or evil, magnanimous or parsimonious, Love is all there is.

Does this mean the world will instantly be peaceful and everyone will feel love and happiness? It depends on whether people are open. You could be feeling Love's presence and sitting next to someone on a bus who is in deep depression. Speaking to the other might help lift her up if she's open. Your presence might also help lift her up. In order to continuously experience Love's presence, each of us has to open up to Love for ourselves. Love doesn't play favourites; Love is there for everyone.

Here's a Psalm that I love; it is a great reminder of Love's presence no matter what the appearances.

1: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2: Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3: Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.
4: There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5: God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
6: The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7: The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
8: Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
9: He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10: Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11: The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Psalm 46)
All my love,
Enocia

A Lot to Be Grateful About

I could write a list as long as my arm about things, situations and people I'm grateful about but I'm not going to bother.

I am grateful that Love is all there is.

Have I left anything or anyone out? Don't think so.

Love and Gratitude,
Enocia

Looking For Love in All The Wrong Places?

A friend recently posted the following comment on a message board:

"I believe that pure love is nothing more than appreciating someone and wanting for them what they want for themselves. As such it - always - feels good and benefits both parties. However, just as we rarely taste pure sugar, but instead get cake, lollipops, ice cream etc, we rarely feel pure love and instead usually end up adding other "flavours" to the sweetness, usually in the form of our own desires. This shouldn’t be a problem, but it means we run the risk of not giving love, but trading it - "I'll love you, but you damn well better give me some love in return". This is usually how it is with sexual love. Then all sorts of "business" considerations start coming in, complicating and often ruining things."
The best thing that ever happened to me was also the worst thing that ever happened to me, depending on your point of view.

The best thing that ever happened was when I first merged in with the Light of being and realised I was the Light. This happened during meditation. It seemed to happen spontaneously. It was and is peace beyond imagination; it is indescribable love. I stayed in that state for hours. When I came out of it I was totally depressed. As time went on, I continued to experience this love but it was always back to the same old, same old.

So when I got into relationships, naturally, I was looking for this kind of all-embracing love. I didn't know how to love that way let alone expect someone to love me that way, but it is what I was expecting because I have experienced that love. Instead I ended up with the kind of sexual love my friend describes above.

To cut a long story short, while I haven't experienced true love in any relationships, I now know there is a way one can continuously experience giving and receiving love: by accepting that love is all around us and that it takes many forms. While it's wonderful to be in intimate relationships, there are infinite ways one can experience love. For me, there is the love I have for writing and sharing my experiences, love for life, love from friends and family, love from Internet friends, love from new friends and strangers, and love from animals and nature, to name but a few. Love is everywhere.

While I was pondering these ideas, I was on a bus. A young man sat beside me and asked me whether the bus was going to Tottenham Court Road. I said it was. We got chatting about Christmas lights in shop windows and we admired the lights on Oxford Street. We also had a laugh about how some shops have special offers of "buy one and get one free." I said if the shop can afford to give stuff away, it must mean that their goods are worth next to nothing anyway and they should be giving everything away for free. My new friend* and I chatted about life and ideas of spirituality.

When we said goodbye I smiled to myself. We had both been given the opportunity to express love as friendship.

It's so easy to expect love to come from a certain way or from a certain someone. When I stop expecting love in a particular way and I am open to love's many forms, life is magical. Every moment is another opportunity to experience the ever present love, whether I am giving or receiving.

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound

And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air
In the whisper of the trees
Love is in the air
In the thunder of the sea

And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel sane
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name

Love is in the air
Love is in the air
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh Love is in the air
Love to all,
Enocia

ps: To D, if you're reading this. Just to let you know it was lovely chatting to you the other day. And you get all the credit. ;-)

More Debunking - Energy

All the world's a stage. Ooops, Freudian slip.

I meant to write, everything is Energy; Energy is everywhere present.

Energy is Energy is Energy. This means

There is no positive or negative energy, just energy.
There is no good or bad energy, just energy.
There is no congested or depleted energy, just energy.
Energy does not flow, energy is everywhere present.

Have you ever been on a train where it's so packed you could hardly move? I have, lots of times, when I used to commute on the tube (underground train). Sometimes, it felt like we were like sardines in a can. There was nowhere to run. You were just stuck in your own little space praying for everyone to get off at the next stop.

Well, "sardines in a can" is a good analogy for describing Energy. As Energy occupies all space there is nowhere for it to flow to. Why would Energy flow from here to there when it is already here and there. Thus, the notion of channelling energy from A to B is false. It's a misperception; our senses deceiving us.

We already know that when light is refracted it appears in various colours as we collectively define the rainbow, yet it is only the one light. Last night when I was in the west end, I noticed these Christmas lights that were blue and, out of the blue (no pun intended), emerged red stars. They were really pretty. The blue lights kept blinking in and out creating more stars.

Similarly, infinite forms are refracted Energy. It is the same Energy that is appearing as human forms yet it is unchanging Energy. While forms appear to change, they are intrinsically Energy which is unchanging.

From time to time I seem to experience various sensations in my body which my senses define as pain or pleasure, hot or cold etc. If I were to see an energy healer, she might interpret the sensations as movement of energy, and congestion or depletion of energy. I don't accept that. Energy doesn't move. Energy occupies all space, whether the space appears to contain a body or whether the space appears to be empty. My body is a sardine in a can and there's nowhere to move to. Therefore, the "movement" or sensations are the senses giving a false reading of the unchanging. So what do I do when I have these sensations? I don’t take them seriously. I know that I am Energy that doesn't move or change.

I woke up in the middle of the night with a blocked nose and I was coughing. Aha, false readings! I dismissed the readings and focused on my identity as Energy. I felt myself as Energy. In that state there was no room for false readings, there was only Energy, there is stillness. In the scriptures, it is written:

"Be still, and know that I am God." (Psalm 46: 10)
God who is Energy and occupies all space is still. There is nothing but God.

By this morning the cough and blocked nose had gone.

Energy does not move or flow. Energy is.

Next time on "More Debunking", I examine whether the world is a stage. I also examine whether Freud does slip or has ever worn a slip.

Cheerio chums.

Out of Body Experience (OOBE) - A Breakthrough

For many years I've been having OOBEs which have taken a set pattern. I would feel my body lying very stiff and feel a part of me floating in the room and away I go.

At first, I used to hear buzzing in one ear, then feel a lot of pain like pins and needles on my body. Sometimes it felt like I was being scratched. I would also hear voices and thoughts of people. Then I would feel myself lifting up, up and away. Majority of the time, these experiences happened during the day when I am at home, and always when I'm alone. When I was a student, I had frequent OOBEs; guess I had a lot of time on my hands.

Soon the experiences changed. Instead of feeling lots of pain, I started to experience a recurring fear: what if when I am in OOBE someone finds my immobile body and think I am dead when I am hovering? What if I can't get back into my body to tell him or her I am OK? I found whenever I was having an OOBE, I would hear someone coming through the front door, and trying to get into my bedroom. In the meantime I would be desperately trying to come back into my body and I couldn't. I would then have a massive panic attack. Eventually, when I was back in my body, I would discover I had been hallucinating; I was always on my own.

Over the years I've been trying to master how to get back in my body. I soon had the thought about sex, which brings me down to earth. Maybe the mystics are right after all, that sex is not spiritual. Hahaha. Oh well...

Anyway, yesterday I had a breakthrough.

It is mid-morning and I am lying on the sofa in the living room. My mother is in her bedroom sorting out stuff. As I lie there half-awake, I can feel myself about to take off. Oh no, this can't happen with my mother around. What if she comes in and tries to wake me up and thinks I'm dead. No, I mustn’t leave my body now! The next thing I know I am hovering above the body and moving at incredible speed out of my body. I can hear my mother in the living room standing beside the body. She is shaking the body but the body is not moving. I'm trying to tell her I'm alright and that I'm just taking a trip, but she can't hear me. So I tell myself: "Get back now!" I'm back to normal. Where is my mother? She's in her bedroom. I've been having another hallucination. As I lie there pondering the experience, my mother comes to the living room for real and asks me if I'm OK. I tell her I am fine. Great! My mother has embodied my hallucination. Just great!

Why have I been having the same fear all these years? I reckon it has something to do with consensus reality. OOBE is one way to demonstrate that we are Energetic beings, not flesh and blood. The human being is concretised Energy. There is a thought-form, a kind of adversary (also known as the ego), that is always trying to distract one from realising our nature as Divine Energy or Spirit. First, the ego came up with the sensation of pins and needles which tried to prevent me from having an OOBE, but I went anyway. Next, the ego devised another strategy making me fear that when I am being Energy, someone is bound to discover the body and presume me dead. The best thing is to stay in the body. By staying in the body, I perpetuate the belief that I am only flesh and blood. It never occurred to me all these years that all I needed to do when having an OOBE is to tell myself to get back. How simple!

Another realisation I've had is that while I am having an OOBE, I am not projecting anywhere, I am simply experiencing myself as Energy. Energy that is everywhere present doesn't move anywhere. While I appear to be moving out of the body, I am actually moving nowhere (now here) fast. Thus, movement is an illusion, a dream. Which leads to the concept of life and death. Birth and death are dreams. Life is the only real, which is pure Energy. Life is the eternal now but it seems so vast and limitless that a coping strategy is to dream of birth and death. While I am dreaming of having birth and death, I don't have to think of myself as this vast Energy Being.

At least I've got the best of both worlds: where I can choose which aspect of Energy I am being: I can have an OOBE so I can feel myself as Energy; or experience myself as Energy in a solid form, as in this human experience.

When I've had enough of being in a form, I shall return to simply being the totality of All There Is as Light or Energy.

Either way, it's all good.

The best thing about having an OOBE is there is now nothing to fear.

The Future is Joy

God is Joy.

In the human dream, you could be deliriously happy one moment but expect to be depressed the next moment because you believe life is a roller-coaster. You are in love but scared that it won't last because nothing lasts forever. Is this how we're meant to live? Are we meant to just have snippets of Joy? Is this the best God has to offer?

In Reality, Joy is ever present. Joy is eternal, meaning it has no beginning or end. Joy is God and God is all there is. Thus, there isn't a single moment when we are separate from Joy though we can dream we are.

I imagine myself as a volcanic eruption where the mountain, the molten lava, the pyroclastic flow are all Joy. Thus, the Joy lava flows and solidifies as joyful experiences and feelings of joy. The flow is never-ending.

I also imagine I am Joy rain pouring down endlessly, and everywhere. I feel Joy, have experiences of Joy, or have memories of Joy. There isn't a single moment when I'm not experiencing Joy.

Orange, the mobile phone company, has the following slogan: "The future's bright, the future's orange."

I say the future's bright, the future's Joy.

I am Joy.

Giving and Receiving

The One is Life, the Source of Love; and the One is experiencing life as the many.

As the Source, the One is always giving of self. Unconditional love is how the One gives without expectations. When we are loving unconditionally, we are giving without expectations.

When the One is experiencing life as the many, He is receiving. As the receiver, I am playing the game of having an individual consciousness which I call Enocia. As the receiver, I am open for the One Infinite Love to express through this consciousness.

On one level, I see giving and receiving as interdependent. The One works through the consciousness and whatever the consciousness has received is given out, which makes the receiver the giver.

Thus,

Level 1 - One = Giver

Level 2 - One = Giver ---> Receiver ---> Giver --->

It is the same One who is playing both games of giving and receiving. When I share what I have received I am experiencing life from the Level 2 position. These writings, for instance, is one example where I am playing the game of receiving and giving; I am receiving experiences which I am giving away on the Internet.

On the other hand, the One doesn't need to step down to Level 2 to give of Self. In other words, the One doesn't need to express through forms in order to give of Self. If there were no longer any humans, the One will still be giving of Self because that is His nature. The One Light is continuously sending out infinite rays of love.

Sometimes I imagine myself as the sun, the one Soul, beaming out my rays of love. My love is not directed at anyone in particular, it is just going out to infinity. When I go round with a smile on my face, not smiling at anyone but just feeling blissfully happy, I am being the One as Giver.

These writings on this blog are written from two perspectives: that of Giving and that of Receiving.

Whether I am playing the game of giving and receiving, or the game of giving, I am Love.

Only One exists.

With Love,
Enocia

How Big is Your Cup?

Infinite Love is forever pouring to all, whether you are aware or not. How much Love you receive depends on your capacity to receive.

I'm about to take a bath but instead of collecting water in the bath tub, I am collecting water in a mug. Is a mug of water sufficient to bathe in? Of course not. A mug is adequate for a cup of tea, but that's about it.

Since Love is Infinite, then my capacity to receive has to be infinite. This means having an open mind that things can happen in any way and every way because there is only One in infinite manifestations.

What we define as human is nothing but a cup or consciousness. You could have the consciousness of a mug, a bowl, a bucket, a bath tub, a pond, a lake, a river, an ocean or infinity itself.

How big is your cup?

Enocia

It's All You

You are everywhere.

Don't think you can
Ever fool me with
Your ever changing
Shapes and forms,
Because I can see
Right through You.

You, You, You,
All people are You
All things are You,
Sights and sounds are You,
Smells and tastes are You,
I feel only You.

It's all You.
Thank you for being You.
I love You.

Don't Worry

Sometimes a song says it best. I love this song by Bob Marley.

Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Woke up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
beside my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Woke up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
beside my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right" - I won't worry!
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right! Three Little Birds
Peace and Love,

The Game of Life

We all seem to be having two types of life experiences: becoming or being.

When life is about becoming, you attract experiences that enable you to learn various lessons in order that you can evolve and grow spiritually and bring in more light. You are going through a spiritual transformation.

When life is about being, you realise there is no need to learn lessons. You are simply here to demonstrate you are Love, and all is Love.

What if I have deliberately put myself in challenging situations, as defined in human terms, to prove that all is the One Love? Before I explain what I mean, let me digress for a moment.

A while back I watched a game show called Time Commanders in which "contestants play against a computer simulation of various battles in ancient history. The object of the game is to lead their army to victory." For instance, you could defeat Napoleon at Waterloo and change the course of history or perpetuate history. I can't now recall which battle simulation I watched, nor do I remember the outcome, but I found the concept fascinating.

Let's apply the game show's concept to life. The I AM in the Timeless Now wishes to experience all that SHE is. The I AM is contemplating life as a human. There is no past or future life, but a continuum of life that is being played out in the Now. All events have already happened, therefore, I AM already knows how things are going to pan out when life is lived from the human perspective. I AM chooses a moment in "history" and instruments that SHE can use to demonstrate that all is Love. I AM then enters the simulation through the human instruments.

For a while the human instruments are distracted by the dominant belief that life is about learning lessons, and that obstacles make you a better person. I AM is always reminding the instruments of HER purpose which is Love. No matter what appearances would suggest, there is only Love; all is One. This way, like the Time Commanders game show, I AM is re-writing history.

Life is a simulation that has already happened. I am simply using the simulation to be the Love that I am.

With love,
Enocia

A Fun Reminder

Last night it was pretty cold. I've been avoiding wearing my winter coat. In Spirit there is no hot or cold, nothing changes. This means in God's presence I shouldn't feel hot or cold. So I decided to play a game by creating a mantra that reminds me of God's presence. It even has a melody. Here goes:

Up and down
Back and front
Left and right
Inside and out
All the way round
All the way round

I wished I could write music so I could share the melody.

Anyway, as I'm singing this in my head, I'm saying God is always

Up and down
Back and front
Left and right
Inside and out
All the way round
All the way round

I'm also saying the attributes of God such as love, peace, wisdom, joy, freedom, goodness are

Up and down
Back and front
Left and right
Inside and out
All the way round
All the way round

Interestingly enough I felt neither hot nor cold as I walked home.

The One is

Up and down
Back and front
Left and right
Inside and out
All the way round
All the way round

With love,

Good Business Sense or What?

Last night, at a bus stop, I got chatting to a bus driver about to start his shift. He was waiting for the bus I wanted. He said the bus was running a few minutes late. He said it's quite acceptable for buses to be late. The driver is paid overtime. But woe betide any bus driver who arrives early, he'll soon get the sack for his incompetence.

The driver said the controllers, who keep tabs on them to ensure all buses are run on schedule, get bonuses when buses are run on time. However, as bus drivers get paid overtime when the buses are late at the end of their shifts, it is not in drivers' best interest to run their buses on time. Why would they want to line their superiors' pockets?

I asked the driver to explain why drivers of the bus route I use frequently can't make up their minds what stop to terminate at. Sometimes bus drivers terminate at the tube station and sometimes at the next stop, where they are officially meant to terminate. The driver said it may very well have to do with whether a bus driver is running early so he will prolong the journey; or whether his superior wants him to be on time, so the driver ends up dumping passengers at the tube station.

What about us customers? What about our needs? The driver shrugged. It's all about making money not about customer services. Hehehe.

Nevertheless, I love travelling by buses.

Enocia

The Biggest Mail Merge Ever

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 1: 2)
Yesterday this woman got on the bus and asked the driver how much the bus fare was. The driver said £1.20.

"How much is it for one stop?" the woman said.
"It's £1.20 whether you travel 1 stop, 5 stops or 20 stops. It's the one flat fare."

Travel is free for kids under 16. They are, however, required to carry proof of their IDs in case they look older.

This is how I see God's love which shines equally on everyone. He loves you whether you consider yourself to be saint or sinner. God doesn't play favourites.

My mother and I recently discussed an evangelist, we've both watched on religious television channels, called Peter Popoff. Mum said she didn't believe in the miracles people claim to have experienced after using his miracle spring water, which Popoff claims is a point of contact that activates the power of God to act in our lives. She said she has tried his water but it didn't work for her. I said it's because she doesn't have the belief. Mum said she also received a letter from Popoff which seemed very personal until her friend received an identical letter from Popoff. The only difference was their names and addresses. Mum was upset because she expected her letter to be personal and relate to her circumstances; she didn't expect it to be identical as her friend's.

"What do you expect, mum?" I said. "Do you expect God to treat you differently from other people? If God can heal others and create "miracles" in their lives, He can do the same for you. You only have to believe."

We tend to think of our needs as personal. We all have the same needs. We all want to love and be loved, be happy, prosperous, appreciated, enjoy life and be free. If God were to send letters to everyone it would be the same letter with different names and addresses; the biggest mail merge ever.

God is no respecter of persons.

With love,
Enocia

A Life to Remember

You know you're getting a bit long in the tooth when you listen to a cover version of a song and you can clearly remember the original.

The other day I heard the Liberty X cover version of A Night to Remember by Shalamar. As a teeny bopper, I lived for Friday nights when my friends and I would go bananas; our favourite night club was also called Bananas. I remember bopping to that song.

When you love someone it's natural, not demanding
And that's one thing I'm proud to say I found in you
I'm so glad we reached an understanding
Now I know my heart is safe with you, hoo...
So now my love to you, baby, I surrender

Get ready tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready (Oh, baby) tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember
I love the Liberty X cover version as it goes. Where was I? Oh yes...

Celebrations and my heart could stay united
And there's nothing in this world to come between me and you
We're together and it keeps me so excited
To think of what the power of love can do, ooh...
And I'm filled with a love that's, oh, so tender

Get ready [Baby] tonight [Girl]
I'm gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready [Get ready] tonight
I'm gonna make this a night to remember

Make this a night to remember

Get ready tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready [Get ready] tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember

Get ready (Baby) tonight (Darlin')
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready (Darlin') tonight (Baby)
Gonna make this a night to remember

This night you won't forget
Gonna make this a night to remember
‘Cause your love I won't regret
Gonna make this a night to remember

Get ready [Baby] tonight (Darlin')
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready [It won't be like the past] tonight (I will make it last)
Gonna make this a night to remember

Tonight
Make this a night to remember
Tonight
Make this a night to remember

Let's make a toast to those who helped make this occasion
They turn their back on love and that's what drove you straight to me
Now to you I make a lasting dedication
I'll show you all that love and life can be, hoo...
And each day that I live I will deliver

Get ready (This night you won't forget) tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready (‘Cause your love I won't regret) tonight
Gonna make this a night to remember

Get ready [Baby] tonight (Darlin')
Gonna make this a night to remember
Get ready [It won't be like the past] tonight (I will make it last)
Gonna make this a night to remember

Get ready tonight
May you all have a life to remember.

What is Spirit?

I have written elsewhere that life's purpose is to demonstrate that life is Spirit.

What is Spirit? The best way to describe it is through experience. When I practise meditation or I am sitting in silence, I lose all sense of physicality, I feel like empty space, yet that space has a sense of buoyancy as if I'm rocking back and forth. This is what I consider to be Spirit. I find it is no longer necessary to be in silence or meditate to experience Spirit, all I have to do is intend it. I simply know that I am Spirit and then experience life as Spirit.

For instance, I wake up in the middle of the night to have a pee. Sometimes I get up but 8 times out of 10, I don't. Do I lie there and suppress the urge? That's too much like hard work. I intend that I am Spirit. Don't ask me how it happens, but I lose all sense of physicality, which removes the urge to have a wee. I either stay in that state or I return to sleep. The moment I wake up and I think of myself or the world as physical I'm rushing to the toilet to have a pee.

When I'm tuned into the Spirit channel, I don't think about food or drink. I lose all sense of having a body. I feel as light as air. I am working without thought. I could be experiencing life as Spirit and walking down the road but people will see me in the same way. We might even have a conversation. Thus, being Spirit is not a matter (no pun intended) of disappearing from the earth and living in another realm, it is simply about realising life is Spirit now.

Life is Spirit.

Advertising

Advertisers work on the principle of "birds of a feather flock together."

Let's take the advert for anti-aging cream. The model with flawless skin tells us the product removes wrinkles or it stops signs of aging.

Aren't advertisers clever? They get you to think about wrinkles. The more you focus on wrinkles the more you attract them so you can buy their products to remove wrinkles. How are you ever going to look like the model when you thoughts are about wrinkles?

Another strategy advertisers use is that the product will help you have beautiful and healthy skin. The premise is dual: that you do not have beautiful and healthy skin; you need help having beautiful and healthy skin. Your thoughts about not having perfect skin makes you see yourself like the ugly duckling. You'd better get those beauty products if you are ever going to have beautiful and healthy skin.

Well, my dear friends, here's my advertising.

Everyone reading this blog is love, beauty, perfection, wisdom and all good.

All my love,
Enocia

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." (John 12: 32)
In a previous article, I wrote about a reality TV show I've been watching called I Want to be a Hilton about a group competing to win the opportunity to live in high society. Kathy Hilton is their host. When this programme is viewed from a different perspective, it is a wonderful demonstration of how consciousness creates reality.


The show's formula is two teams will be set different challenges. Members of the winning team will experience an aspect of high society, while the losers will face Kathy to discuss why they lost. Kathy will then eliminate one member of the losing team.

In the first episode, Kathy offered each of the 14 contestants a silver spoon with a green or blue ribbon tied around it. Each colour symbolised a team: the greens were Park Avenue and the blues Madison Avenue. Madison Avenue lost the challenge and they got a member eliminated. In the second episode, Madison Avenue lost again; ditto the third. By the fourth episode there were now seven members in the Park team and only three in Madison. Kathy suggested that Park nominate a member they wanted to move to the other side, which they did. Kathy also asked Madison to pick a member from Park, which they did. The teams were now even. Both teams were given another challenge. At the end of that task, Madison lost again. What's going on with Madison?

By the fifth episode, Kathy decided to make two members from Madison group captains. Jackaay was captain of the blue team while Latricia was captain of the green team. Each captain was asked to select who she wanted in her team. Both teams were set some challenges. Jackaay's team (the blue) won. What was interesting was that apart from Jackaay, all members of her team were from Park.

Now what struck me about this game was how the losers kept losing and winners kept on winning. Why? Because when you lose you are thinking of not losing which means your thoughts are focused on losing so you end up losing. In other words, wherever you focus your attention is magnified. On the other hand, if you are on a winning streak, and you focus only on winning, you attract more wins. This is why successful people tend to hang around with successful people. People who are interested in spirituality tend to hang around with like-minds. As the proverb goes: "birds of a feather flock together."

In the final show of I Want to be a Hilton Jaret was crowned the winner. Jaret was part of the Park Avenue team and member of the blue team. Is it possible Jaret already had a winner's mentality which attracted the same?
Success is not just about like attracting like, it is about how someone's positive attitude can influence those around him. Someone who is filled with joy can walk into a room with depressed people and the whole atmosphere will be instantly transformed. Why? Because joy has a higher frequency than depression, which will quickly raise the whole room. If you hang around someone or you are friends with someone who is always joyful or full of love, it rubs off on you. If your friend tends to manifest wonderful experiences because of her positive attitude and you are friends with her, you catch it and you find you start attracting wonderful experiences.

Imagine if you have a friend who is focused on awakening to her real Self? Even if you're not interested in the same, you will be influenced by your friend's frequency. You find you start to notice more synchronicities in your life. You might even start questioning who you are and why you are here.

What if you hang around with God all the time? What if you knew there was nothing but God? It's obviously going to rub off on you, isn't it? You are going to be like and behave like God. And your friends benefit, and their friends, and so it goes on.

If you tend to wallow in the mire, you will attract more of the same. You can always raise your frequency by reading inspirational material that lifts you up, which will end up attracting you to a friend who is on a higher frequency, and so it snow balls from there...until you soon realise you are Joy, Love, All There Is.

Choose your friends wisely.

With love,
Enocia

Don't Know, Don't Care!

This morning while waiting for a bus I noticed the bus inspector. I had been thinking about making a comment about a particular bus route. Should I speak to the inspector? I couldn't be bothered.

Perhaps, I should look up the website for London Transport and email them? Undecided.

On my bus journey I noticed this guy's hair. I thought he looked cute. The guy turned round and the back of his jacket read: Transport for London. He got off at the next stop.

Is the Universe trying to tell me to email Transport for London or is She simply reflecting my thoughts. Don't know, don't care!

I Have Never Left Home

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." (Genesis 1: 26)
Science tells us that during pregnancy, while the foetus is developing in the womb it is being nourished by the placenta. Once the baby has been born the placenta is expelled from the womb as the baby no longer needs it.

The human birth story is a symbol of the One who has extended Himself as different points of consciousness in order that S/He can share all that S/He is. Unlike the human birth story, we have never left home. We were never born. We are still in the Cosmic Womb feeding from the Cosmic Placenta, being All that our Mother/Father God is forever more.

The purpose of the human instruments is to act as receivers for the All That Is. What do I mean by this? Imagine you've never seen a television before. When someone turns the television on you are startled to see people moving inside. You check the back of the television but there's no one there. Curious! How did these people end up inside the television? There's only one thing to do, take the television apart. You're shocked to discover there are no people in the box, just wires and stuff. Where did they go? They were never in the box, stupid. The box is simply a receiver of signals. Somewhere out there, there are signals being sent out that your television is picking up, and transmuting those signals into pictures and sounds.

In the same way, human instruments have been created to receive signals from the All That Is. We are the All That Is transmitting pure Light and Love to the human receivers, which are meant to transmute these signals into life experiences of endless joy. We are not meant to fend for ourselves. Everything we’ll ever need has already been provided for as pure essence of Love. We only need to receive the signals and let Love be made manifest as forms.

Have you noticed that as more people are waking up to their identities as the All That Is, there's been a backlash? That’s because the "powers that be" like things the way they are. They can’t afford for us to realise we are One and here to share everything? The "powers that be" have picked up on ideas about "sharing" and distorted them to distract people from the truth of being.

For instance, there is a new brand of reality TV shows about rich people wanting to share their wealth. There is always a big catch, however: the millionaire is only interested in giving some of his wealth to a few people at a time. If you want it you're going to have to compete against others; and the winner takes all.

Last night I watched several episodes of a reality TV show called I Want to be a Hilton. In this show, 14 contestants have been given the opportunity to "live the glamorous lifestyle of high society," which in this case is the life of the Hiltons. Kathy Hilton plays host. She gives the contestants various tasks, eliminates contestants, and decides on the winner.

In one episode one contestant, a former beauty pageant, saw the game as an opportunity to climb up the social ladder and was terribly upset when she was eliminated. Another contestant was accused of not taking the game seriously. She reminded her fellow team members that it was only a game and it wasn't as if she didn't have a life. She was quickly eliminated. What these contestants don't realise is that the life they so crave come with rules of that society: how to talk, walk, dress, work and be. What kind of freedom is that?

The show seems to be saying to viewers: "See, rich people are not just "fat cats" who only care about their own, we are magnanimous too. If you want what we have, you're going to have to play by our rules."

There is nothing wrong with wanting to be wealthy and live in opulence but at what cost? To believe that you have to compete with others to enjoy the "good life" is to perpetuate the belief that only a few people are entitled to an opulent lifestyle. You are dreaming that society is unequal, which is simply not true.

Why would anyone want to aspire to be someone else when you can be yourself? All we need to do is remember that we are already the All That Is. We have never left home. We were never born. All human instruments are receivers for the All That Is to transmute the Light into joyful experiences. Whatever one receives is for the good of all humans.

There is no need for any of us to compete with one another, we already have it all. It doesn't stop me enjoying reality TV shows though. Maybe it's the media graduate part of me? Who knows, who cares? I love television.

I have never left Home.
I am All That Is.

Receive this gift with all my love.

Being in the Present

When I am in the present I am in stillness. In stillness there are no gaps. Gaps arise where there are thoughts. No thoughts, no gaps.

In stillness there is no sense of here or there, no up or down. There is simply presence, being, isness.

When I'm in the present events occur in sequence without gaps, without thought.

The moment I start to think, there are gaps. And where there are gaps there is a sense of things taking time and space in between.

And then I return to the silence and things unfold in order. You know when to speak. You know when not to speak. You know when you should leave somewhere. You know what road to take. If you happen to glance at something or someone, you know why you are looking at that person or thing. You meet the right people. You follow your nose.

When I am in the present I am being in stillness.

In stillness, I am Presence.

Life's Purpose

I've always known we are meant to live effortlessly. We are not meant to strive for stuff or try to make things happen. I know this, not because of what mystics have taught, but because it is the truth of Reality. In order for this reality to be made manifest there have to be willing instruments who are willing to stay focused on this reality, which is for the greater good.

Yeah, yeah, the sceptics will say, that only happens in science fiction and fantasy novels. Who do you think you are, Mary Poppins? I soon learned very few people were open to my way of thinking let alone prepared to support me. They were fast asleep. What do I do? Do I give up on the idea? Do I get myself a proper job, get married, raise a family and hope for the best? Do I dream of a time in the future when society will be ready to accept this idea so we can unfold this idea together? Or do I stay focused on Reality?

First things first, I had to wake up from the human dream of pain and pleasure. I had to stay focused on the truth of Oneness. There is only One in infinite manifestations. We are One. The One is Spirit. We have created the universe for us to experience life as Spirit. This means there is no material universe, it is pure Spirit. No matter what human condition we find ourself in, we are all here to express Life's purpose. What is Life’s purpose?

It is to demonstrate that:
There is only One;
Life is Spirit;
Love is all there is.

For the first part of this life up to when I was about aged four, I was very aware of who I was. My mother tells me my mantra was "I am a clever girl." Then I fell asleep. During the "great sleep," I entered the collective human dream which is about finding a useful role in society, working hard, getting married, having kids, growing old, retirement, death etc. Though I was asleep there were times when I would suddenly wake up from the dream. I would remember who I am and for a short while become a lucid dreamer. I would then go right back to sleep.

Let’s take a few examples of some of my human nightmares.

From the time I was aged 8 to about 13, I experienced sexual abuse from relatives I was living with at the time. However, I made it very clear that I wasn't prepared to have penetrative sex. Weird, isn't it, that I was forced to go through the simulation but penetration was a no-go area? While the simulation went on for years I never lost my virginity. This shows that at some point I was lucid dreaming.

The experience of sexual abuse, as defined by society, gave me a complex because that was how society said I should react, at least that's how the dream goes. I was very angry and saw myself as a victim, then a survivor. After going through a few one-to-one and group therapies I was bored of the whole thing. I realised I was neither a victim nor a survivor. The moment I came to that realisation I was free of the experience. In other words, I woke up out of that dream. I was awake to the truth that I am not the experience; I am the "I."

When I was aged 10, I was involved in a car accident. This was the first time I realised I was dreaming. This experience opened my eyes to oneness. See Accident or Omnipresence at Work?.

One of the experiences people fear the most is poverty. In a reality where goods have to be exchanged for the Sterling, or whatever currency you use, when you haven't got much money the world can seem very scary. What if you're inspired to give up your job, not claim any benefits, but trust in God? People might think you've gone barmy. How do you expect to survive without money? Everyone needs money! There was a point when I did just that. My needs were always taken care of but I didn't have much money to spare.

How do you cope when you don't have much money? You can't, of course, afford to buy luxury food. You can't afford to be choosy. Eating out is out of the question. You start buying cheaper products. Here comes the test. We've been lead to believe that the more you pay for something the better the quality. Therefore, cheaper food is bound to be lacking in nutritional value. If you buy cheap water, for instance, you're not getting quality stuff; it might even be contaminated. Before you know it, you're feeling weak, you even look sick; all because you believe you're eating poor quality food. On the other hand, you could put on weight because you believe you're eating food of high sugar contents, also known as junk food.

In my case, I used to love bottle water. I started buying cheaper brands, then I stopped buying water and drank water from the tap. It even got to the stage when I would drink water from public toilets if I felt the need. What happened to the woman who was into her nutrients and was very particular about the foods she ate? She woke up from the dream that food is one's source of life. That woman realised that Love is all there is. That woman realised that because Love pervades all, it doesn't matter what you eat or drink, or if you eat or drink, you are being sustained. Yup, that dream was very short-lived.

Another dream I quickly woke out of was that expensive beauty products make you look young. I realised that as Love is who I am, I can use any product or not use them.

What about if you fall ill? In the UK as we have National Health Service which is free. I had already stopped going to doctors because I had trained in various forms of healing, such as energy healing, NLP and spiritual healing. There came a point when I woke up out of that dream. I realised that I didn't have to do anything, I simply had to realise I am already perfect. This was one difficult dream and one that I have to be very vigilant of because for some reason I can fall back to sleep and start dreaming I am a body and start experiencing pain.

Human dreams are not just about pain and suffering, there are many people having pleasant dreams. Pleasant dreams are more insidious. You could be dreaming a wonderful life with a nice family, friends, lots of money that takes care of all your desires. If you still believe in the reality of sickness and disease or that foods can harm you, you're still dreaming. You might be having a nice dream, but you are still not in touch with Reality.

Like many people, I was asleep for a long time dreaming myself as a human. Then I realised I was dreaming. I thought I could wake up by trying to study truth or by self-effort. I soon discovered it was a waste of time. What do you do when you realise you are dreaming? Wake up. It’s that simple. I woke up by simply realising who I am. Sometimes I wake up from a dream, realise who I am and fall right back to sleep. Self is always there to remind me to wake up, thank God.

Human suffering and pleasures are dreams; they serve no real purpose. The only purpose is to live life as Self, by being aware that all is Spirit; all is One and Love is all there is.

This blog is my way of demonstrating Life’s purpose.

With love,
Enocia
