Transition Between Religion and Spirituality

Religion is a starting point on the path of spiritual development
You are never asked or expected to leave behind your faith, no matter what it be. It is your starting point. Why would your God ever ask that you turn your back on his or her way? The most important function of any religion is to provide a code of behaviour and the understanding that we are loved and protected by God so that we may grow in the understanding of his (or her) wishes.

Mind Games

We are all familiar with the fact that people play games – often cruel games – with each other.The most common games are related to the sharing and stealing of life energy – everybody knows a vampire – someone who just flat out drains you. The games take the form of dominance manipulation. The basis is old psychology. Nothing new here. It has been written about many times with a twist to make it appear new.
Conscious Living will enable you to spot the game well before you succumb.

Life is Like a Fish Trap

What a statement! How can life be like a fish trap?
The thing is that when a fish swims into the trap it is his very nature that keeps him trapped. He wants to get out – but – looks to the edges of the trap furthest from the centre to exit, and of course, there are no holes there.
Is a fish stupid? Not necessarily – they have been around for longer than we have.
The result is that the fish perpetually swims around the edges of the trap seeking an exit.

It is ALL about Me!

Pretty arrogant statement huh? – Only on the surface. I myself can change nothing, EXCEPT MYSELF. When I change myself, I change my world. I see things in a different way, things that once really bugged me now are small stuff. Besides which, it is poor form to try to change other people to our mould. Better we change ourselves. Let us work on what is possible.
Yep – that is right – It is ALL about Me! Now before you get all jumpy – particularly on me – let’s look at this thing.
