The Poetic Certainty of Unentertaining Negative Thoughts

e15e6dd2a91c2b1825233f641efe6720

This is a poetic short guide to the Art and Skill of ignoring negative thought patterns that seem to multiply inside the mind without our permission by the thousands, daily. Two literary resources whose material I’m quite fond of, specifically clarify this simple concept in a sweet little practical way. “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff” by the late Richard Carlson PHD, has a whole chapter dedicated to it. And then, every basic book, audio, and video that Eckhart Tolle ever produced, has this concept outlined in quite considerable theoretic detail. Not to mention, Esther Hicks channels Abraham with this concept at the helm.

It’s wonderful and refreshing, those quiet momentous occasions when I have stumbled upon  pearls of wisdom that inspired me to revisit my personal practices. I was reminded recently of how very important of a learned and practiced skill it is, to UnEntertain negative thoughts. The concept is very relevant to the topic of the affirmative action of positive thinking. Within the realm of changing our thoughts to alter our life experience to ultimately rewrite our destiny, we could certainly use all the help we can get.

This concept personified,  is presumably, the very archer of our dear lives that is walking stoic with a few bent arrows, upon the battlefield of the Babylonian mania that exists inside of our minds. The battlefield upon which our dear little-ingrained granules of negative DNA molecules like little micro demons, so irreverently scatter about incessantly like a broken damn record in some weird haunted film. Almost like a mess of sharp tacks tossed across your walkway. Negative thought patterns seem to stick to our mental walls, like pornographic graffiti that takes a kingsize scrub brush and superior industrial cleaning agent to ever even attempt to get off. Erase, discard, eradicate, defer, debunk, derail, desensitize, deglamorize, dehypnotize, de-energize, undo, unglue.

Boo! Scare it out. Scream and shout. Do not feed complaints or doubt. Never let too much anger or vengeance or fear amount. Be the eager little soldier or scout. UnEntertain its darn downright dirty little secret pout. Let it out, by UnEntertaining its sneaky ruthless route. It’s such an attention seeker. A stalker, a tweeker. A ham for the limelight. A sore impetuous sight. A rambling ruse attempting to distract our muse. A fancy false filament of verbiage we must not use. It only wants us for the sole purpose of abuse. It is our job, to appropriately choose. To ignore their negative nasty smelly worn-out shoes.

Let’s pretend that they don’t even count. Let them pass to the flipside where they have no clout. They’ll disappear, and disintegrate into billions of particles to never again be found out. This, my friend, is the Art of UnEntertaining the poisonous nothings that roam aimlessly about. Nagging & nitpicking our mental hallways, they seem to be there somewhere… just always. Waiting to disrupt, tangle or meddle in business not their own. They hide and lie and waddle and moan. They will try to catch a lift, latch on like a leech or a tick. They’ll begin to suck the blood out of anything they pick. But if we choose to UnEntertain their drama, lure or tricks, we will certainly master the art of dodging bullets, stones, rocks, boulders and sticks. AKA: negative thoughts. Blah zee blah blah blah. Run along now, gruff grumbling antics, take your false hooded sinister semantics.

No more tea and crumpets for you, we no longer Entertain any sorry ass uninvited thought untrue. We only have caviar and an open bar prepared for our guests, the ones whose motives are only to bless. Keep it movin’, keep it steppin’, keep it real. I am wise enough to choose to UnEntertain your useless spiel. Negative thought? What negative thought? Nelly? Who the helly is Negative Nelly?

The Cuban cigar, the Ribeye steak, you will not get the privilege to partake. The feathered throw pillow or the 20-year scotch. Not on my couch, not on my watch. We don’t Entertain frauds, or fools who have no good intentions. We only pay our mind to right thoughts that give us healthy habits, and honorable interventions. Take a hike Meddlesome Mike. Scram, ya big fat ham, Hit the road Juvenile Jack. Store is closed. Lights turned off. Now flock to another flame, you rammy little moth. We learned to ReTrain the Brain, not even a wild horse can take our eagle eye off the game. We know how to judiciously UnEntertain!

Whew! That was a close call & almost a really low blow… get off my property, ya mangy scavenger crow. Shoo ya big moose. For your service we have no use. Go away, and take your car salesman undermining tactics. Go back to your 1980s weird science lab of poisonous pretend prophylactics. We take vitamins and drink the clean refreshment of right positive mental flow. Take your negative words and whispers and please just go!!!!! We live in the New Age, where we have grown to fastidious heights. One thing that we’ve learned how to do, is to unfly dangerous kites.

Black magic, be gone! Storm your way out into the perilous winds of distress. There’s nothing for you to feed off of here, nothing to make a mess. Poised and protected, the gladiator within rocks a heroic hoist. Standing tall she knew exactly how to make her choice. Amidst the groveling viral voices within, batting her lashes with that rainmaker grin…. her heart embraces only the ribbons of wealth… weaving their way… to perfect mind-body health. Owning authority and accountability for her personal space and domain, negative thoughts, not even a minute longer do we foolishly Entertain!

Ha!

Mantra: a word with wings

423bd4125e92935d0e33df53b0107f83

What is a mantra? A word with wings…

Using a mantra to go beyond thought is called “Transcendental Meditation.”

The word “meditation” means: thinking.

The word “transcendental” means: to go beyond.

Put the two together…

“Transcendental Meditation” means: to go beyond thinking, or thoughts.

The best method to hover above, or sail the surface of the thought pool is to use something that will keep us afloat and essentially lift us up higher and higher like a balloon defying gravity. The gravity spoken of here is in terms of the weight of heavy laden sinking thoughts all churning  in an undertow of rip currents that tumble, toss, ebb and flow  all down deep below… in the grind of the mind.

Getting sucked into the churning thought pool is like being captured by a runaway train that never stops to pick anyone up. It just keeps going and going and going forever. That’s what thoughts do. They just go and go and go forever. That is the nature of a thought… is to essentially join other thoughts in the crusade to furnish ideas for the mind that introduce more thoughts that yet gravitate to even more ideas and inspirations, and contemplations. Some thoughts lead to musing, some lead to reflecting, remembering, reminiscing. Thoughts feed off each other in the great big churning melting pot of the mind. Some thoughts lead to other thoughts, some thoughts lead to feelings, or daydreaming, or fantasizing, or reverie. The thought flow  could be compared to time. We live in the 3D realm here on Earth, therefore we exist in the zone of time. We cannot stop time. We can’t even slow it down or speed it up technically. All we can do is remove ourselves from its perception and then we are free from its confines.  Just like energy can not be created or destroyed. Neither can time, and neither can the flow of thoughts.

So…what now? Well, now that we understand the nature of the thought-flow game… we can know how then to defy it. Go beyond it, essentially, so that we may have more control over our ability to be in a peaceful unafflicted state… by the thoughts that always attempt to meddle in our lives. We have a choice… we can either surrender to the stillness, or put our dive suits on. Snorkeling anyone?

Or maybe I will strap some wings on today instead… and… FLY!!

Run! Jump! Fly! Catch me if you can…

Ya big fat heavy waddlin’ words in my head, draggin’ through mud and mental marsh. I’d much rather choose to hop on the mantra plane, and sail through the sky of imagination and folly where thoughts disperse freely and the playground of the mind is in the sky of higher vibrational space… not the quicksand of a traffic jammed land where I’m sinking fast swallowed by the future and past.

Up upon the wings of faith I am lifted to safety where in the arms of a peaceful serenity I am free to just be.

Any mantra will do. All it is a word sound that will help us commune with the auric aerospace of the 5th dimension coexistent with us right here in this very moment. It is a conduit for transporting our consciousness to a higher vibrational level by allowing us to lift or float up past all the 3D “noise” essentially, via our complete surrender. Our surrendering simply entails learning how to use a mantra. Let’s define the word mantra… shall we?

#1) At the Chopra Center, where Primordial Sound Meditation is the favored meditation technique, students are given a personalized mantra, their Bija, which is the sound vibration the Universe was making at the time of their birth. This mantra is repeated silently over and over during the meditation practice to assist the student in transcending the activity of the mind. The mantra is silent and has no meaning so that the mind isn’t focused on any particular quality or outcome. It is simply a vehicle that helps you access heightened levels of awareness.

#2) Mantra is a mind projection created in either a spoken or mental manner. Mantras can be a word, phrase, syllable or sound. They can be recited, sung or repeated silently in the mind. Shakta Khalsa, in her book Kundalini Yoga, describes mantra as a technique for regulating the mind. There are many mantras each one having its own quality, rhythm, and effect… every thought or feeling that we have is on a vibratory frequency. By using mantras we direct the mind into a higher vibratory frequency.” For thousands of years, mystics, meditators and yogis have used mantras for mental and spiritual transformation.

Whether you choose to use the old standby mantra “OM,”  you decide to adopt one from google or are given one by a spirit guide or your own intuition….whatever works, USE IT! Use it to transport you to the realm of sacred silence where you can then be most available to the Cosmic Consciousness, Universal Mind, Highest Truth… Pure Potentiality.

Once you find a mantra that suits you… the trick to using a mantra effectively, is to not hold on to it too tight. Instead of stating it over and over again… try the method instead, of listening to it being stated. HEAR it… like in the form of an echo through the hallway of your mind, and you are just following its sound into infinity. Eventually, if you practice this skill, the sound will drop you off into the land of free consciousness. It may take some practice, but if one can master that method of listening to the sound, it will become easier to steadfastly blow past thoughts to higher dimensions. With this skill, we then develop the ability to focus our attention on the mantra with little or no distraction from intrusive thoughts. As a result, we will find Transcendental Meditation to be a very effective way to plug into the higher mind daily. In doing so, we benefit greatly then, from the endless abundance and pure creative potentiality of the Universe. Our lives become richer on the 3D plane, as we learn to tap Source. Sweet! Count me in! lol

Happy sitting!

Namaste

America’s Towering Resilience

The first major event that transpired upon the red carpet in the 21st century, beside the ball drop in NYC.. was 911. It happened so abruptly for most of us and was such a traumatic, life altering game changer for all of us as an American unit. Whether you are patriotic or not, if you were standing on American soil on 9/11/2001, the twin tower tragedy as surreal or as scandalous as it seemed, was a landmark in American history and affected all of us in some way, shape or form. And every single year that September 11 rolls around… I feel compelled to speak of it, in honor of our heroes, sacrificial lambs, lost fathers, mothers, brothers, wives, daughters, sons, sisters, and friends. I feel compelled to pay tribute every single year that day arises again and again, to remind us of our mortality. To remind us of our fierce ability as a unit, to be brave and defend our integrity as Americans and human beings alike, no matter what religion, race or nationality. We stand strong, tall, and united… when tested. We demonstrated nobility and grace under pressure, strain and sheer scarcity. Demonstrated dignity in the face of sheer death and destruction and the unknown of a possible war zone right in our very backyard. We are resilient, & beautifully connected to each other in ways that only God can explain. Thank you, everyone who came through. Thank you to American People. Especially the teams of optimistic, courageous, loving folks of New York City! We salute you! God bless America!

Get your SIT GAME tight

meditation_853x480.jpg-min

Meditation is like drowning in a pool of words and the only thing we have is a slippery mantra to grab onto, that seems to slip slide from our grasp at every turn like in a slippery watermelon contest in the deep end of a pool. The world of the invisible is so vast that one might feel overwhelmed by its mighty freedom. But it’s okay, just sit anyway. Stay. For as long as you can. Then go! But… always, RETURN.

Today is a new day. Fresh with green fields of summertime nostalgia filled with poetic lazy timeless memories and moments. Fresh with inescapable dignity, I rest in knowing that I am safe, kind, non reactive to evil dwellers with foolish dark vibes. Today I only attract those who are warm. Those who are for my highest good, with sound intentions and centered interactions laced with lovely unconditional affections. My life is a wealth of joyful experience. I meet and mingle with like minds with similar programs. Fortune, favor and abundance lay eyes on me with visions of lights strung through the garden party of my gratitude. As I rise to the occasion of success, I affirm my connection to all things unlimited and eternal. Every moment lived, is new and now.

I see clearly through the veil of distorted reality where people grovel with disillusionment and discontent. Where people stew miserable and irritable with squirming moods, or negative attitudes  of un innerpeace. I vow today to be aligned to the oneness of flow that allows me to be kind, helpful, wise and safely standing in a place of protection at all times. No one has the power to steal my energy. I give what is righteous under the law of karma. I do not get caught up in the ides of duality today. The fifth dimensional reality is an open portal for my advancement as I connect with the evolution of my soul, the development of my mind, the inspiration of my heart, and the surround-sound of my soaring spirit. Through all this, I stay grounded in Mother Gaia, as I am nourished via the Earth’s chrysalis core.

Justice is served. Today I reap rewards. I stay in alignment with perfect peace by engaging restful practices of nourishing relaxation. This is where I allow myself moments to unwind, decompress, be removed from any and all stress. For, from this place of power, lies my ability to handle anything that might oppose me, attempt to disturb or distract me, distort my focus and essentially derail my train of trust.

I stand firm today. Planted in the ground of my gratitude like a blooming joyful happy flower, I am thankful for all things that manifest in a timeless realm of perfect prosperity. No need to wait for it, I have all that I need right now in this very moment. And I know that as I feel the great satisfaction of being alive within this state of conscious awareness, with all my senses in tact, my heart muscle strong, my lungs filled with air… I am tuned in, balanced, gifted, and light-lifted.

Holding the flag of my human survival, I sail through this life with ease and reconciliation. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow, not yet along… today is a gift, it is the present. May we all unwrap slowly and enjoy unraveling every ribbon, bow and surprise. Go forth now, dear ones… and RISE!!!!!!!

Grand Central Station: so is life

I spent a lot of my life wishing I was a cat. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I will just reincarnate right away into one for my next life… lol.

I believe in fate. But I also believe that we play our part to construct its design. There’s not much in the way of limits on what we can manipulate or maneuver in order to fashion fate. the one thing I do know, recognize & realize…is that one day we will all fall down. Meaning: the body will eventually surrender its service to us.

Which is fine. I’m okay with that. The scary part, I guess, is just, ya know, wondering how it will happen or when…

Not knowing is where the mystique of the unknown creeps in & fear rears its weird bizarro creepy face.

But, ya know, ya just gotta think about it this way… who cares… how or when. Cause fate has a way of finding us no matter what cards we play. We are basically powerless for that matter in that department, so… why worry?

And that’s fine too, cause life is fleeting & short as shit any way you slice it. 🙂

In a blink of an eye, we all pass each other by.

Some stay long, some leave us. But life is really all just a big fat giant Grand Central Station full of people gettin’ in & out of trains, on over to buses, cars, & cabs all day long. People are rushing, runnin’, walkin’, sprinting, sitting, or snoozed out. Crossing paths, comin’, goin’, passing through, traveling to & from all sorts of different destinations. Some ride together, some don’t. We have our drivers, passengers, leaders, followers. People who solicit, people who preach, sell things, steal things, meet for the first time or run into each other again. People making friends, networking, following routines or routes. Conversating, making small talk or connecting. Goin’ on vacation, trips, work, school, or just goin’ back home. Or maybe just getting on each others nerves & pushing each other out of the way to climb the steps, catch the elevator or ride in the front or the back. People text, tweet, snapchat or skype. Record things, snap pics, drink a beer, watch the game or play one. People wait, are late, eat, flirt, kiss, hug, hold hands. Drink coffee & energy drinks, chew gum, smoke whatever it is people are smokin’ theses days & read… papers, magz, whatever the heck else work, school or pop culture requires.

Let’s rejoice in today. And the bus, train, path & journey we are on. And the person, people, things, animals, kids, events & experiences taking place near us, on it. Cause this moment counts. Everything in it counts. They are all precious pieces to the cosmic puzzle. And maybe we are all just here in this life, to recognize that.

Today’s power thought: “Today, i will slow down… so that I may recognize the moment & in doing so, I will recognize fearlessly, all life has to show & offer me, with an elevated heart, mind & consciousness. It is my pleasure to live in this very moment!”

Thanks Universe! For giving me another day, opportunity, the wellness & secret ambition to do so!

Peace!
