Notes to Self

Reminders to myself.

Notes to Self:


if you're looking for the answer that fits your story, you may
miss the one that fits the problem.

Freedom isn't measured by what I've obtained, but by what I'm willing to let go of.


Don't look outside. Look inside. --  Don't analyze. Notice.


It takes a lot of work to live a fantasy. It takes no work to live reality.


The truth is self evident. There is no struggle is seeing it. The real struggle is in not seeing it.


Question your thoughts. Be especially aware of the level of 

thought you allow without questioning.

You don't have to believe everything you think.

Ask. Don't Assume.


By the time spirituality becomes religion the path is lost. You can't learn spirituality by rote any more than you can learn about yourself by studying someone else.


Linear time is a false narrative. Self identity (ego) is a false narrative.


Creating art with the intention of economic expectation is to invite fear into the process of creation.


Choose life.


Humility is a strength. Vulnerability (and honesty) is an asset because it bypasses the ego.


A lie is a collaborative effort. Believe nothing (about yourself or the world) and the truth will come to you.


The danger of externalizing good and evil is that we seek destroy it, which is actually evil.


Be honest with yourself. If you don't think you are bullshitting yourself, you may be bullshitting yourself.


The great deception of the ego mind is not that spiritual transformation or transcendence, or connection to pure love is unavailable, but that it's available any other time than now. Don't postpone joy!


There is no need to live up to someone else's expectation of who you aren't. (Even if you are infatuated with them and want to.)


It's hard to change if you think you are right.


To become a servant of money is to fear lack. To serve love is to invite abundance.


You will always feel the loneliness until you allow yourself to see others for who they are, not who I want them to be. 


Be the love you seek.


Just BE the light. Nothing to figure out. Lean not to my own understanding. Let go of the ego mind.


When I think I know, I block the flow.


Life force energy (prana, chi) and psychological blockages (issues and delusions) cannot co-habitate.


Judgement is fear. Judgement of others is fear that their issues will prevent love in a relationship with them. Most, if not all fear is rooted in a desire for love. Self judgement is fear that my issues will prevent me from accepting love, or being love-able.


Physiologically speaking the person that produces stress is the same person that experiences it.


By seeking to define yourself (create an ego) you may also be inviting others to define me (in ways I don't like).


Don't use pride to cover cowardice..or the inability to take action.


It is unrealistic that everyone should like me. If I think that, it may be that I don't like myself.


It is only from sharing about myself from a place of sincere and deep honesty that I can help anyone. It has to be for them (from a place of pure love) NOT me. For their spirit NOT my ego.


Sometimes I am the student. Sometimes I am the teacher. Wisdom is knowing the difference. (I can't do this from a place of ego.)


Be honest. Be honest first with myself. Be open and honest with others.


Don't be discouraged if the path you're on doesn't seem to be working as planned. The thought that I know the right path is a self deception.


Don't complicate simplicity. (This is a function of the ego mind.) Choose Love.


There is a solution to every problem. The problem doesn't really exist. it's only my inability to see the truth.


There is no enemy. External conflict is just reacting to anothers' internal conflict. This is illogical.


Anytime you have a judgmental thought about something or someone turn it around and apply it to yourself.  That is most likely the source anyway.


Your relationship to the world is your relationship to yourSelf.


There is a physical energy to transformation. Kundalini is the rising of life force energy as it cleanses out false ideas and ego concepts.


In order to make sense of chaos we attach ourselves to concepts to feel grounded.  This is not reality. This is how the ego forms.


If you want to change something, then set out to change it.  If you want to change everything, change yourself.


The only thing to conquer is yourself.


If it serves people it will grow, if it doesn't, let it go.


To change your life, change yourself.


The ego believes it has a goal.  it's goal is self preservation, amassing material wealth and planning for a future it believes to exist.  Don't believe this, stay in the moment!!


Don't complicate simplicity. (This is a function of the ego mind.)  Choose Love.


There is a solution to every problem. The problem doesn't really exist.  It is only my inability to see the truth.


All fear is motivated by the fear that you won't know love.


Let go of what you are holding on to and you will find what you seek.


It's never not now. The future and the past are delusions colored by our own perception.


You always have a choice.  Choose Love.  Choose Joy.  Choose Forgiveness.


Love yourself and forgive yourself.  Compassion and love for others originates with compassion and love for yourself.


The scariest demons you will face are in your own psyche.


Don't be to concerned with trying to figure things out. Lean not to your own understanding.  It's Ok to not know.


Help others.  Be pure in motive and intention. Examine your heart (to be sure it's for them and not you.)


Put Love first and everything else will fall into place.


See beauty in a person (or situation) - Interact with beauty.  See ugliness in a person (or situation) - Interact with ugliness.


Focus on the good and the good gets better.  The magic is in the moment.


Your greatest liability is the belief that you know the truth. Question your perceptions.


Do I have the courage to fail?  Do I have the courage to succeed?  Do I have the courage to let go of these concepts and simply BE?


Dogma is an illusion fueled by fear.  Fear is the enemy. Love always wins.


Happiest moment for the Ego:  the moment just before getting what you want.  Happiest moment for the Spirit.  Every one, because you realize you have always had it all.


Want nothing. Have Everything.


Expecting the reactions of others to complete me, or fulfill me will always lead to disappointment.


Be honest about what I'm learning (with myself).  Pretending within myself that I have made some grand discovery in order to get love will just ruin my energy.  Be Humble. Keep it Real!


Do the work, but don't get attached to the outcome.


I'm only hurting myself by getting upset about circumstances.


Misery loves company, but bliss is contagious.  Be strong, be of good cheer!


Ways to keep your energy up: Be honest with myself and others.  Acknowledge my humanity (even things I want to hide).


Be the love you seek.


It's hard to speak the truth if I don't know what that is.  Only I can know my truth.  Look deep inside to know what that is.


The path you're on IS the path.  Your exactly where you need to be. Walk by faith.


You don't have to believe everything you think.


Talk less. Do more.


BE happy.


Everything is Self referential.  Pay attention to how things, people situations make you feel. Ask why? That seems to be how to understand myself the best.


You may not know the answers, but being mentally clear may help you ask the right questions.


Don't focus on the experience. Just BE the Change.


Be careful and aware that when helping others that I am not seeking to establish my "superiority". WE are all equal.


Don't seek wholeness in other relationships.  It will always lead to disappointment. Your wholeness is within.


Ask yourself why does this topic, conversation or situation affect me (positively or negatively) what part of my Self? (be aware of the physical response in the body)


Most of the things I react to: people, things situations - have some relation to the energy with me.  Everything is internal.


Intellect in the service of ego is dangerous indeed.


Music gives voice to the soul.


Peace will only occur when humanity realizes and acknowledges that liberation is internal.


Morality IS Self respect.


The pathway to Peace is paved with self respect.


Some days I feel I am enlightened.  Then I learn a valuable lesson and realize how much I don't know. I feel most enlightened after realizing how much I don't know.


Fear and uncertainty sometimes mark the path to liberation showing us the Way via our mistakes.  Face Fear (and watch it disappear).


It is easy to be humble in the light of truth.


Anger and Violence is a sign of weakness.


Be grateful for the strength of others.  Many times those I perceive as weak are strong in ways that I am not.

Just a personal note: There is nothing new under the sun. I am just attempting to present info. here that has helped me. I hope to present it in a clear way based on my experience with anxiety which was a spiritual, psychological and emotional awakening for me. In retrospect of this experience I have been reading as much as I could to come to a deeper and more grounded understanding of this seemingly mystical thing that happened to me (so that I could share it with you).  I'm not a doctor or a scientist.  Please know this is only my experience.  Yours will obviously be different, but since my experience was so similar to others I've talked to, I am hoping this may be helpful or useful to you in some way. It's also a way that I hope to share my love with you...and a way for me to always remember.
