We all have a notion, at least intuitive, of what is the subconscious mind. It refers to all those pieces of information, all those energies of which we’re not aware in daily life. It’s basically the product of our upbringing, of our conditioning, more or less supported by the physiology of our growing little bodies.

The conscious mind, on the other hand, is all about what we can label and imagine, decision making, “logical” thinking. In most cases is only directed by the subconscious, by the past, printed in our body-mind ego structure. Good news is that we have the power to rewrite the subconscious in order to attract different circumstances in our lives. How so? By means of our innate ability to focus. Of the trillions of bits of information we can perceive, we choose only less than two million. To direct our focus we must use techniques like visualization, affirmations, physically active rituals involving yoga, dancing, acting. All of them are very powerful as long as they are charged with emotion – energy in motion. In this way, we tap into the vibrational aspect of reality, that some call the 4th dimension.

All good. It’s a very powerful state of consciousness, you can literally and metaphorically, do the magic in 4D. However, you can feel that we’re missing out something. What’s that? Yes, you got it. The superconscious. That is the realm of the essence. Beyond past conditioning, beyond conscious thinking. It’s amazing when you realize that you can tap into it right now. Actually, you can only access it now. The prerequisite to align to a 5th-dimensional state of consciousness, that, for the record, is your natural state, is being present to the moment. True presence connects you to the superconscious. Why? Because you let go of labeling your experience through past-conditioned reasoning. It’s all about real novelty. You let the wordless intelligence of nature, of pure consciousness, of the Universe, of God – however you feel more comfortable to call it – flow through you.

From a 3D and 4D perspective, connecting to the divine is a process that takes time. The research of God, some say. Nonetheless, by realizing time is an ego-generated illusion anyways, you can fully tap into presence. Here and now. How to do that?

I’m going to mention some techniques you can research deeply by yourself after reading this article. We have that of  Proprioception, namely perceiving the aliveness in your physical body. We have Mindfulness Meditation, that mainly focuses on the five senses, separately and simultaneously. And we have more, I assure you. However, what really helped me in my experience, as a beginner and forward, is observing my thoughts and emotions neutrally. A non-judgemental attitude really makes a difference when it comes to awareness. You really let nature do its thing.

Mulberry Tree (桑树)

So sweet are your children,

So far is your image

In the past, in the future…

Here and now I summon you,

Mulberry tree.

Some might not see it,

Some might not admit it.

Some might not taste

The texture, mild flavour, and aftertaste

Of those red, lilac, purple and black

Jewels, dangling from your canopy-rack,

Mulberry tree.

But I do,

You know, I do.

And so do you.

Sāngshù.

Let Them Pass

Clouds swimming fast in the sky,

Where will you take me?

To the open mouth of a river screaming loud?

To the aching limbs of drastic doubt?

Clouds swimming fast in the sky,

What will you show me?

The skeleton of the human race?

A Chinese Buddha with his big fat face?

Clouds in the sky, screeching tires of white,

Where do you run to?

I don’t care.

Because

I’m smelling the breeze on my arms,

I’m listening to the circular saw synth-waves,

I’m feeling the warmth of this body,

Through which I experience the waves.

But my essence lies on the lakebed,

From where I quietly observe the tempests of the mind.

Let them pass,

Like clouds swimming fast in the sky.

Self-Forgiveness And Redemption

Most of you know the iconic Redemption Song by Bob Marley – if you don’t check it out, it’s a good one. In the refrain, he says: “Won’t you help to sing these songs of Freedom? Cause all I ever have, Redemption songs […]” Probably Bob alludes to a process of gaining freedom through redemption and, reading through the rest of the lyrics, his parallel goal is emancipation in a political light.

Let’s take it on an individual, inner level since the “outer” level is nothing but its reflection. Now, redemption requires action: do something to be forgiven for your past actions. That’s exactly where it gets tricky. When you redeem yourself through some sort of action you carry with you the heavy baggage of guilt. It’s still a third-dimensional behavior. It works. It takes you from point A to point B. However, let’s focus on the ultimate goal of redemption, what is it? Nothing but Self-forgiveness.

What I suggest is to operate the other way round. To sing these songs of Freedom in the present moment. Let go of the burden of guilt now. Forgive yourself here and now. How do we do that? By observing the emotion of guilt without any mental commentary anytime you feel it. Non-judgmental observation is required.  In this way, your actions become automatically more love-based and therefore high-vibrational.

“Others” will start to forgive you after you’ve forgiven yourself. From the outside the two processes look almost the same: Jimmy Jumbo does something he labels as bad; he recognizes that; so he does something opposite and redemption happens. Nonetheless, on the inside, the perspective is shifted, the amount of effort required is reduced. This time it’s all about Freedom. We’re not talking about the heavy and solid 3D – or 3rd density. We’re talking about the light and flexible 4D. The realm of vibration beyond linear time, the realm of the Now.

A Prayer to The Forest

Sunshower

It smells like home,

The dead and the living.

It looks like home,

The bark lines you’re reading.

It feels like home,

The chill under your bare feet.

It sounds like home,

Since you groove to the birds’ beat.

It tastes like home,

 Like the raspberry refreshing your soul.

Come on, nature’s giving you all!

For the Forest temple is our Home.

Dancing Madman

aaaa

Picture: Greek Dancer by Jean Groberg

*************************************************************************************

*************************************************************************************

 

Dancing madman on the street,

As free as the wind on his bare chest.

Dancing madman on the street,

Living in the moment,

Happier than the shop-owners

Peering out of the window at the ordinary miracle;

Happier than the police,

Came to extinguish his smile,

Laughter of the eternal child.

Dancing madman on the street,

His house’s a backpack,

His home, the whole world.

He has no riches nor gold

But he’s richer than most,

He’s richer than we’re told.

Dancing madman on the street,

You bestow me a tune

From the beginning of the century,

From the beginning of time,

Or is it from the end?

How?

I don’t mind, for both of them

Can only be conceived Now.
