Practicing Mindfulness and Creating A Love Mantra

post image

  In my journey to being more compassionate and loving around the people that bless me with being in my life. I have come to create my own rituals that I have found that resonate well with me throughout the day. It is similar to Kamals "I love myself" mantra but with an added prayer to the Master (I also call him the Master Programmer). This helps me orchestrate my day on a positive tone, rather than getting snagged up by the stories we can sometimes get carried away with. Stories that make us heavy and may not be particularly helpful when it comes to loving ourselves and enjoying life from moment to moment. Here are my two major rituals that I indulge in from day to day and from moment to moment. [...]

How To Bypass Heart Void With Emptiness (Unconditional Love)

post image

As you may or may not have noticed, but I have been taking quite a break from posting on Emotional Alchemy. I can assure you that it is to good cause. To re-shape who I am and to get back to the beat of my soul. And with this I have more to share with you. So I am going to show you my spiritual walk as well as how I was able to bypass the feeling of nothingness that can typically happen when you delve into a think called "The Emptiness Teaching." To the many Bodhisattva, this is one of the most important teachings, and to the Christ this is, "To gain your life, you must lose your life." Unconditional Love is Directly Seeing Yourself [...]

Taking The Log Out Of Your Eye And Destroying Inner Judgement

I have been very active in the past week (not particularly in writing), but in going out and enjoying nature. Yes... The picture above is me bursting through a tree, showing superman how its done. It has given me a lot of time to think about things and to look inwardly, to dig deep, and to find out what is really running me. And how we can be so critical of ourselves. That inner judgement leads us to want to judge others. However when we begin to catch ourselves in that thought loop and start to re-orchestrate our thought patterns to loving ourselves, something happens. For instance the simple mantra which Kamal uses on his in breaths, "I love myself." is a good healthy first step! Maybe why bible verses like this spring up from Matthew 7, 4-5: "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye." That when we learn how to cleanse ourselves, judgement no longer becomes an operation we put out toward others as a by-product. They may not completely stop, but in my experience they are lessened in larger degrees. Let me share with you a wonderful story that Kamal Ravikant brought up in his book Live Your Truth about Gandhi, [...]

Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

Thanks to my friend Delma, I came across a book that recently helped me pull myself out of a funk that had almost overtaken me the other day. This goes completely with my philosophy of sharing your truth with others because what helped you may help others. This book is a short but phenomenal read (I read it in one sitting). It comes down to Kamals journey of going from just breaking up with his girlfriend and losing a close friend to death to transforming himself into loving his life through self-love. [...]

One Minute Insight: February 21

There is not a moment where the universe is not pulling for you. It’s a miracle that we are all able to collide with each other; to change each others lives. Sometimes in small ways, and sometimes in big ways (both good and bad). So that we may wake up and realized how connected we all [...]
