If you’re used to multitasking, giving your undivided attention to just one thing might seem like a waste of your vast brain power. But it’s not. Though technology makes it easy to be clued in to so much of what’s happening in the world, it also accelerate the pace of your busy life and can cause you to miss the moment you’re in. The ancient practice of mindfulness helps you develop single-pointed awareness and plugs you in to the fullness of this moment. And that is…

The only time there is.

Jarl and Steve

 

News travels faster than ever before. You can live in absolute peace while hearing constantly about tragedies engulfing other parts of the world. There’s so much information about the bad stuff happening that you might miss the fact that humanity is more peaceful now than ever before. If you consider it your duty to be informed of the difficulties in the world, remember that what happens out there is based on the collective consciousness. You can’t rush the consciousness of others, but you can lead the way. If you want optimal results…

Focus on peace.

Jarl and Steve

Imagine you came into this life with your particular nature and intelligence just to work through certain issues and evolve to a higher level of consciousness. Everyone you interact with is a teacher who helps catalyze this growth. Challenges deliver the precise grist you need to continue your expansion. Each experience, joyous or arduous, provides you with another opportunity to look for the lesson and rise to a new level of existence where, instead of resisting what is

You flow with it.

Jarl and Steve

Being able to digest feedback from others without getting defensive is a valuable skill that helps you flow through life. No matter how judgmental or condemning someone’s behavior seems, it’s still just their projection. It’s based on their limited perspective and it’s never personal. When you can calmly evaluate the (ir)relevancy of their point and correct your course when necessary, you’ve mastered the art of transforming ego-diminishing experiences into ones that promote your…

Evolution.

Jarl and Steve

Your upbringing wasn’t perfect. Nobody’s was. Parents live and teach according to their own background and awareness. When you compassionately acknowledge the (mild to extreme) dysfunction that comprised aspects of your early life and realize that it’s nobody’s fault, you’re on the path to healing. Regret and blame prevent you from growing through that conditioning. Any place you feel stuck is likely an opportunity to acknowledge a wound and work through it. It’s the sand in the oyster that creates the pearl. Using your grist enables you to become…

A gem.

Jarl and Steve

It’s normal to occasionally be unsure about whether or not you care to do something. But delaying your response to others is like leading them on. Suggesting you might be a ‘yes’ when you’re probably a ‘no’ actually isn’t kind. The longer you wait, the harder it’ll be for you to say ‘no’ and the more disappointed they will be. It’s easier for all involved to turn a ‘no’ into a ‘yes’ than a ‘maybe’ into a ‘no’. Try it out the next time you’re on the fence about something. Just say…

‘No’ for now.

Jarl and Steve

Your face tells the story of your life. Each line represents the joys and difficulties you’ve experienced along the way. Every moment provided you the perfect opportunity to learn and evolve. Each choice was inevitably made from your level of consciousness at the time. Your face reveals whether you’ve been in the habit of harboring anger and regret or self-acceptance and love. While facelifts and cosmetics affect superficial differences in appearance, your inner radiance has a much more profound impact on others. To make that beautiful, nothing comes even close to…

Self-love and acceptance.

Jarl and Steve

There’s only one healthy way to move beyond sadness, anger or despair and that is to feel those feelings. Thinking and talking about them will keep you engaged. Although feelings are indeed caused by the mental function of seeing and interpreting your experiences, they have to be experienced (felt) as sensations in the body. When you finally start feeling, blocked energy is released. Sitting with your sensations enables you to realize your inborn wisdom as you understand the fundamental truth of all phenomena…

Everything is temporary.

Jarl and Steve

Although you seem separate from others, your fundamental nature is a unique expression of the single energetic force that exists in everything. This force animates every part of you and the world you live in. It experiences itself through your senses. Your ego is your own concept of yourself. As it bumps up against reality, the inevitable result is the discovery of the truth of who you are. You are not this construct. The real you is the one…

Witnessing it all.

Jarl and Steve

Every thought, word and deed creates or reinforces a pattern in your consciousness. The more frequent the behavior, the more automatic it becomes. Eventually, the needle of your life plays along established grooves and creates the record of your life without you even thinking about it. But you can become more conscious of your thoughts and speech. You can avoid negativity. You can make a habit out of looking for what’s right. You can actively practice gratitude. The choice is always there. It’s your recording..

Make music you like.

Jarl and Steve

The foundation of your belief system was formed by a fairly young age. Based on information you absorbed from your parents, teachers and other important influences, this filter determines what you see and how you see it. It compels you to search for whatever reinforces its perspective. Until you become aware of the power that this conditioning has over your experience of life, you’ll be limited to its narrow confines. Realizing that everything you think and see is colored by this filter is the first step in waking up from your self-created…

Dream or nightmare.

Jarl and Steve

Your outer experience is a perfect reflection of what goes on within you. If you’re not at peace, you’ll perceive disharmony out there. If you’re hard on yourself, you’ll be hard on others, too. Life will continue to mirror back what you experience within, no matter how you struggle to change things on the outside. Though your ego will object to this, you can verify it for yourself. Refrain from indulging in judgmental or negative thoughts about anything or anyone for just one day and then see how different you feel…

We dare you.

Jarl and Steve

If you’re really living, you’ve undoubtedly experienced repeated failure. You know that it takes focused effort to keep from feeling disheartened. But don’t let a lack of success affect your sense of self-worth. It’s crucial to maintain your commitment in the face of intimidating difficulties because it develops your personal power. It helps you to put your focus where there are no limits controlling how happy you are…

On the journey itself.

Jarl and Steve

It’s easy to get caught up in making plans for the future. But if you want to be happy today, you have to maintain a healthy balance between preparing for what’s to come and fully experiencing this moment. Once you live it, it’s gone forever. The best way to maximize your enjoyment of NOW is to be present. Accept it, live in it with all of your senses and most importantly, appreciate it for…

What it is.

Jarl and Steve

The wise you knows it’s best to let go of hurt feelings, grievances and regret. It understands that these self-created constructs weigh you down and hang you up. It realizes that letting go of these encumbrances enables you to flow with life and soar to new heights. Your wise self knows that this approach to living not only feels better, it accelerates your growth. Others gravitate toward you because they sense your authenticity and wisdom. But the very best part is that…

You like you.

Jarl and Steve

Perfectionism may seem like a laudable trait that motivates you to enhance your performance, but it comes at a high cost. The need to be superior often stems from a feeling of inferiority. Striving to be ‘the best’ doesn’t make you feel good, it actually engages the inner critic. The only effective way to deal with that critter is to cultivate a willingness to make mistakes. When you learn to accept yourself unconditionally, you eliminate frustration and stress. It helps you express yourself authentically, creatively and ironically…  

Do your best.

Jarl and Steve
