PATREON: Seeing Oneness 101 —The Simplicity Of Our Unity.

“At our heart, we are each like a single piece of paper. I am sure you have heard of the art of origami through which people create beautiful shapes — such as animals, planes, and boats — by folding a piece of paper. What you may not know is that origami has some simple rules:

  1. The piece of paper should be perfectly square.

  2. You cannot cut the paper (or use tape or glue).

  3. You cannot add anything (such as decoration).

This means that each of the billions of origami shapes ever created are identical in their basic form. If you unfold any two of them — and thereby remove the mask of their shape and reveal their fundamental form — they are found to be the same.

What is so significant about this underlying unity is that everything about who we are (including how we perceive ourselves) has formed through the creation of an experience of individuality. This means we are physically wired and mentally conditioned to see what is different and changing — rather than what is the same and static. Therefore, when it comes to looking at origami shapes, our brains are designed to see how they are different, instead of seeing how they are the same.”

PATREON: Abundance Series: Don't Just React To Your Life — Create It!

PATREON: Abundance Series: Don't Just React To Your Life — Create It!

“In today’s article (the third in the series on abundance) we will explore how to stop reacting to experiences of lack from a fear-based position, as this is what breaks the cycle of fear-based negativity that lies at the heart of our deepest experiences of lack and low self-esteem.

We have seen that to break out of a cycle of lack and abundance you must embrace the whole of the cycle, as when we resist the “down” part we step out of our natural state of allowance and effectively apply our brakes through the feeling of resistance. This causes us to remain in a state of lack instead of passing through it.

Abundance is not something you can only experience when things are going well. There is a deeper experience of our inherently abundant nature where you experience your abundance continuously — instead of only through the “up” part of the cycle. This happens when you no longer experience the “down” part through a sense of fear or negativity.

In talking about breaking out of the cycle of negativity, it is important to know I am not talking about ending the cycle of lack and abundance (as that is an eternal cycle just like the seasons). The cycle I am talking about breaking out of is the cycle of negative, fear-based perception through which we experience lack as something far worse and more painful than it is. This is to see the lack part of the cycle in a similar way to how we view the winter or the night — by not seeing the times when we are outwardly less productive as something to be feared or as a mistake we need to avoid.”

FREE: Abundance Series: The Extraordinary Power of Accepting the Unacceptable.

FREE: Abundance Series: The Extraordinary Power of Accepting the Unacceptable.

To experience lack is to experience separation from the innate freedom of your spirit. The experience of lack is not however a “lesser” experience — or one to be extinguished — because it is what gives us the feeling of appreciation within the experience of wealth which is necessary for that wealth to be experienced as abundance.

You can also neatly transpose this understanding of the relationship between lack and abundance onto being embodied versus being in spirit:

To experience being embodied is to experience separation from the innate freedom of your spirit. The experience of physicality is not however a “lesser” experience because of how it gives your spirit a wider understanding — and hence appreciation — of the infinite nature of its freedom to be.

FREE - Lack versus Abundance — Seeing the Big Picture.

“This is the first of a brand new series of articles I will be writing about abundance. I look forward to writing more in the coming weeks. 

How our experience of lack is what makes our experience of abundance so unique.

The first thing to understand about abundance is that — in the way we typically think of it — it is an experience that is particular to being an individual. There are infinite versions of abundance (which are experienced across infinite realities), but what we may think of as an experience of “complete” abundance is actually an experience that births from — and stands in relation to — our experience of lack.

Because your spirit does not experience lack, it is therefore incapable of experiencing abundance in the way you do.

From the perspective of your spirit, the state of abundance is just “how it always is” and to live within that state is very different from experiencing abundance in embodied form. This is because — except through you in human form — your spirit does not know what it is like to be disconnected from the experience of abundance through an experience of lack.

Your spirit lives in a state we would call “pure abundance”, but to your spirit this is just the unquestioned freedom to create what it wants to create. There is no way for your spirit to experience any difference between freedom and abundance in the way we do because it cannot experience lack. Therefore, what we call “the state of abundance” is actually “the state of freedom” as viewed through the polarized lens of lack versus abundance  —  with lack being experienced through the outer definition of not having or not being able.

Abundance is the freedom to be.

PATREON - The Mastery of Fear — What if all fear is an illusion?

PATREON - The Mastery of Fear — What if all fear is an illusion?

Fear of each other is a force that not only divides us as people and countries — it divides us internally.

We are each convinced our fears are valid, otherwise we would not choose to live within their confines. But what if your fears are illusions? Today’s article explores this intriguing premise. Enjoy!

The Core Principle.

The core premise of what I teach is that consciousness is eternal and unified, and that the separation we experience as individuals is a perceptual illusion. Fear is the name of the repulsive force we created in order to experience separation / differentiation from each other.

Fear is not, however, an external force or “thing” that exists in separation from us — it only exists within our perception when we are embodied. Not only does our spirit not experience fear, it is not capable of feeling fear; the deeper realization being — we are each our spirit’s choice to experience fear. This choice is not made from a desire to suffer, it is made from a desire to experience diversity and individuality in relation to a collective.

Therefore, your experience of fear — along with your experience of individuality and diversity — is an illusion which was entered into willingly from the state of consciousness we call “our spirit” (which is not separate from what you are).

To experience fear as an illusion rather than a force that controls you, is to become conscious of how it is a choice.

FREE - Are We Predetermined or Free? Is Anything Really "MEANT" to be a Certain Way?

“Free yourself from the prison of believing in “meant”.

Discover the infinite freedom that lies in the realization that there is no choice you are “meant” to make in a certain way. There is nothing in your life you were “meant” to do because, if that were true, you would not be free. This is not to say there aren’t many things that your spirit imagined it may do in mortal-form, but do not extrapolate this to conclude that you are “meant” to do these things.

They are simply ideas that your spirit felt might be exciting to explore.

You are free to explore them in this lifetime, in another lifetime, or never; there is no “meant” to it — “meant” is a mental illusion.”

PATREON - Is It Time For #MeToo To Remember Its Heart? The heart of abuse is seeing ANY person as “less than”.

“Today’s article is a surprise because I started writing about the realization of equality and ended up writing an article about the #MeToo movement! This is a rather scary thing to talk about with so many people blinded by righteousness and rage (which has, understandably, been caused by our collective wounds of abuse all coming forward to be addressed and healed). So, as ever, know that I am wounded and fallible too, and please take what resonates and leave the rest as I try to navigate this emotive topic from a place of love.

With love, Story

PATREON - 18 Inspirational Thoughts For Your Day.

“To live without control is to live in freedom, for it is to live in the knowing of “the perfection of what is”. Letting go of trying to control your life is a journey as the need to control lives within us at many levels and in many guises. When you let go there is an opportunity to discover these layers of control as they resist the freedom inherent to “letting go” — usually through the manifestation of fear.”

“The past is a mirror and if you will not stop looking at it, then the image in that mirror will act as a heavy imprint over your present reality and your feelings about your past will be continually relived. So either release your past and smash the mirror, or live it consciously knowing you are dwelling in a mental projection and not the present moment of your being.”

PATREON - To Say You Know “The Truth” Is To Be Lost : Why universal, transcendent truth is an illusion of individuality.

PATREON - To Say You Know “The Truth” Is To Be Lost : Why universal, transcendent truth is an illusion of individuality.

Ideas do not free people — choosing to live in freedom (which is “being free”) frees people.

Ideas can be an incredible catalyst for people to enter freer states of being — but the ideas in themselves do not make this happen. So, share your personal truth freely, joyfully, and with love (which is without attachment to how it is received) — but understand that these ideas alone will not free people (although people can use them to free themselves).

In seeing this distinction, someone on the spiritual path is freed from the search for an ultimate, idealized truth. Such a truth cannot exist as it would invalidate the freedom of our will. To cease to seek “The Truth” is to find what you are really looking for.”

PATREON - Your Dreams Can Answer Your Biggest Questions : Bring the magic of your dreams into your waking life.

PATREON - Your Dreams Can Answer Your Biggest Questions : Bring the magic of your dreams into your waking life.

“One of the best ways to deepen your dream experiences is to keep a dream journal. Even though reading back over your dreams at a later date can certainly provide additional insight (particularly in seeing how different dreams are related), the reason for keeping a dream journal isn’t so much about recording them for later; it is about what you will learn through the process of putting the fluid, strange, emotional, hard-to-articulate events of your dreams into the solidity of language.

By writing your dreams down you will be much more likely to remember them even if you never look at your dream journal again. This shows how are dreams are not recorded in our primary memory unless we create a recording of them in our waking state by either writing them down or telling someone about them.”

FREE - Lucid Dreams — How To Wake Up Within A Dream : The #1 Practical Technique To Wake Up In Your Dreams & Fly!

FREE - Lucid Dreams — How To Wake Up Within A Dream : The #1 Practical Technique To Wake Up In Your Dreams & Fly!

“The advanced technique I want to tell you about is call lucid dreaming. For those of you that don’t know what this is, it is something you have probably experienced, but maybe not since you were young. Lucid dreaming is when you become aware you are dreaming while still within a dream.

Typically, when this happens — and you start to become aware you are dreaming — then the dream begins to disintegrate and you feel yourself waking up. Your early experiences of lucidity are therefore likely to be experiences of waking up from a deep dream with the thought, “oh this is a dream” shortly before waking up.

Where this phenomenon gets so exciting is that by thinking about lucid dreaming in your waking life and coming to recognize it as a phenomenon, you will bring a new level of awareness to the point of waking from the dream such that you can stay within the dream — instead of letting your realization of “I am dreaming” wake you up.”

PATREON - Embracing Death — What If Life Isn’t Precious? : What about seeing life as being inescapably abundant?

PATREON - Embracing Death — What If Life Isn’t Precious? : What about seeing life as being inescapably abundant?

I wrote today’s article several years ago directly following a California retreat I held where I was shocked to find myself — in addressing someone’s experience of grief — talking about the notion that life was NOT precious. This was surprising because, despite death being a popular topic, I had never been shown that particular spiritual perspective before — hence I wrote the article.

In reading it let me remind you that the basis of what I teach is that there is no absolute truth and that all perspectives have value — which is the inclusive teaching of “ALL as truth”. This is why I like to explore perspectives that are commonly rejected. Therefore, in this article I am not saying that the idea that “life is precious” does not hold great value; I am just exploring the often overlooked value of the opposite perspective.”

PATREON - Seeing the Packaging — We Are All Spirit In Human Form : An esoteric exploration of “the package” we each present to the world.

To know what you are on the inside — your spirit — is to then see with clarity what you are on the outside — your human packaging. To come to see your embodiment as packaging is to see the state of eternal-consciousness that is packaging itself through infinite realities.

Today’s article is an esoteric dance of identity (meaning it is poetic, playful, and abstract) between what we are within human form and what we are as eternal-spirit that uses my own gnostic experience as its starting point but then opens up to show how this is a dance we are all engaged in. Through this article I invite you to see and reflect on your own “packaging”.

“The awakening process is simple to explain and yet it takes many lives to master. In today’s article we will start with the main premise of my teaching — that we are eternal-consciousness in human form — and explore this through the understanding that we are therefore each in a state of partial consciousness of All That We Are.

In this it is discovered that the flow of experience — that we call awakening — which leads us from not-knowing to knowing (unconsciousness to consciousness) is a powerful force through which we direct our experience.”

FREE - Challenge Reality With The Love In Your Heart : Why you can’t always believe the reflection of reality.

FREE - Challenge Reality With The Love In Your Heart : Why you can’t always believe the reflection of reality.

"While it is true that reality is a perfect (and miraculous) mirror that reflects our own beliefs back to us, this does not mean you should believe everything that reality seems to be telling you. This is because your reality reflects not only what you mentally believe but also the emotional experiences that those beliefs arose through.

Although we often express our beliefs in mental language, they are fundamentally emotional. This becomes clear when we look at a belief such as “I love myself”. This is an easy statement to say, but that does not necessarily mean we believe it at an emotional level. We must therefore always look to the instinctual feeling deep within us when understanding that reality is a reflection of our beliefs.

Reality is not therefore a reflection of “The Truth” (a mental-notion based on the idea of a solid, objective, absolute, external reality); it reflects the “self that is present” and that includes all your fears, doubts, frustrations, and judgments."

FREE - The Feeling Of Truth Points At Your Personal Healing : An exploration of the inner feeling of resonance that we all possess.

FREE - The Feeling Of Truth Points At Your Personal Healing : An exploration of the inner feeling of resonance that we all possess.

"This feeling of resonance is felt when an idea excites us — when something we hear “rings true” and we feel drawn to believe it. At first this inner feeling of truth can seem to be a confirmation of the existence of absolute truth. But if absolute truth only applies to physical things, then what is this feeling?

It is the knowing that arises from the place within you that knows what your spiritual intention for this life. This is felt as your personal knowing — the knowing within your heart through which we feel guidance. This is felt as your very beingness resonating with what you are experiencing. It is the experience of resonance.

The discovery of something that resonates as being true for you personally is a beautiful experience. To be in the flow of life in this way is to continually draw resonant experiences to yourself. To follow your joy — to follow your excitement — is to follow the resonance of your heart. Your heart always leads you towards what it resonates with because resonance is an expression of love. Your heart is continually leading you towards the realization of love — the realization of your wholeness."

PATREON - What If Governments Were Transparent? Imagine A New Transparency Party : Privacy is Not the Issue — Why We Should Need Privacy Is.

"The revelations that have come through Edward Snowden’s courage have sparked the debate about protecting our right to privacy, and I deeply resonate with the outrage. However, I believe that…

The entire debate has shockingly missed the key issue.

The direction of this entire discussion about protecting our privacy could be expressed as “How are we going to stop governments from spying on us such that our personal actions remain private?” This could also be expressed more simply as “How are we going to protect ourselves from our own governments?”

What is so shocking is that people are trying to answer this question at all. It is surprising because in seeking to answer the question, we are accepting the premise that it is acceptable that we should need to protect ourselves from own our governments.

The purpose of government is to SERVE us — not control us.

There should be no “us” and “them” when a people think of their government."

FREE - Chill Out — Spiritual Awakening Is Inevitable : But how you navigate your experience of awakening is a choice.

FREE - Chill Out — Spiritual Awakening Is Inevitable : But how you navigate your experience of awakening is a choice.

"There is a perceptual doorway within your consciousness that leads to a completely new experience of reality. When you step through this doorway, if it wasn’t for the fact that you continue to exist in a physical body, you would think you were dead. This is because the doorway represents the same perceptual shift we go through at death — but experienced from within a life.

Opening this doorway in your perception will allow you to begin to perceive the non-physical reality we each birth from. The state of awakening consciousness you experience when approaching the doorway represents the experience of consciousness that arises when we begin to directly perceive how we are all connected.

The awakening of humanity to its shared non-physical origin is as inevitable as the sun rising tomorrow.

Everyone is inevitably moving towards the realization of our unity (no matter how it may seem outwardly) because we are each faced with our fears in such a way that we will always eventually choose to recognize and resolve them (though this experience takes many lives)."

FREE - The Neverending Story — How Everything Is Circular And Eternal : Linearity is an illusion. Embrace the circularity of life to awaken.

"Today’s article explores how the awakening process can be understood as seeing through the illusion of linearity to understanding how everything in creation is circular. It’s a pretty mind-bending concept that, when you get it, becomes a key to understanding many of the most profound spiritual concepts. Love, Story

A Picture Of Circularity. Imagine a large gold ring rotating horizontally in the air front of you and, as it rotates, you are reading a sentence engraved on its outer edge. It says,

“next it is summer, then it is fall, next it is winter, then it is spring,”

A never-ending story with no beginning and no end. A story that makes perfect sense as it is describing the cyclical process of the ever changing seasons.

What is seen here is that even something linear (like a sentence in our language) can be turned into something infinite and eternal if it describes something that is cyclical and written in a circle — as seen in the symbol of a snake eating its tail."
