"Extraordinary insights for Life, Work, and Travel."

    Developing Presence 103: Learning To Recognize and Increase Sensitive Energy (Bitesize Wisdom #157)

    Developing Presence 103: Learning To Recognize and Increase Sensitive Energy (Bitesize Wisdom #157)

    Today we’ll talk about increasing our ability of working with our sensitive energies, of getting more acquainted with recognizing sensation for what it truly is. 

     With learning to relax the body, emotions, and thoughts we are laying the foundation for our journey into our inner space. Our ability to perceive what’s going on inside us becomes more acute and vivid. When our body is no longer wasting its vital energy on unnecessary tension and strains the energy that keeps us in relationship with our bodies is naturally accumulated. Most people never advance on their self-development path because they simply don’t have the energy because our already low supply is wasted through various unconscious leaks we have developed like negative emotions and bodily tensions. If we were video game characters, at the end of our day our power bar would always be in the red. We just don’t have the resources to pursue more lofty spiritual goals.  

    Through our practice of deliberate sensing, we learn to come into contact and become grounded in our bodies through this sensitive energy.

    Developing Presence 101: Relaxing The Body and Releasing Its Tensions: https://youtu.be/Yj6x1VzN874 

    Recently I made a couple of videos about living from presence, If you haven’t checked them out, I'll put the links in the description box. In the first video, I talked about the importance of grounding our attention in the raw sensation of the body, in the 2nd video I talked about the next step of learning to relax the entire body to get our energies flowing more freely, today we’ll talk about furthering our ability to calm our body.  

    Once we have gotten acquainted with learning to use our attention to progressively relax our whole body, we will try to go into a more thorough deeper relaxation. Our self-development journey is one where we learn to go from the gross to the very subtle.  

    The tensions at the coarser physical level of our body are usually the easiest for us to identify and to let go of. The next more subtle and deeper level of tensions that we need to relax is that of our thoughts, emotions, and will.

    Life Advice From The Stoic Epictetus To Overcome Fear and Agitation (Bitesize Wisdom #155)

    Life Advice From The Stoic Epictetus To Overcome Fear and Agitation (Bitesize Wisdom #155)

    Today's quote is by Epictetus, “For if a person shifts their caution to their own reasoned choices and the acts of those choices, they will at the same time gain the will to avoid, but if they shift their caution away from their own reasoned choices to things not under their control, seeking to avoid what is controlled by others, they will then be agitated, fearful, and unstable.””  

    This quote highlights an idea we've discussed before, which is the importance of creating a life aim for ourselves. A long last aim that can serve as our guide and always point in us in the right direction for our life. Since my channel focuses on self-development and becoming more conscious, increasing our awareness can serve as a broad and long-lasting aim for our life. Anything that helps us move in the direction of becoming more mindful and aware is good and anything that takes us away from that aim we would consider bad.

    Cultivating Patience: The Key To a Happy and Blissful Life (Bitesize Wisdom #154)

    “Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.”  
    They say patience is a virtue, and it truly is the number one quality to cultivate in our lives because it ties in and is a by-product of all our self-development work. Real patience is the result of our genuine inner work, of us, becoming more conscious.

    Developing Presence 101: Relaxing The Body and Releasing Its Tensions (Bitesize Wisdom #153)

    Recently I made a video about living from presence, If you haven’t checked it out here: https://youtu.be/-Px1k1XLJ2A  In that video, I gave a brief overview of how our spiritual journey is one where we go from the gross to the very subtle, and the importance of learning to ground our attention in the energy of sensation in our bodies in order to grow and feed our presence.  

    Today I’ll get a little bit into discussing the initial stage of developing contact with our body, with our body presence which is an essential beginning foundation to help us go deeper and higher into the subtle energies of our inner space. Developing our inner energy body of sensation will act as a container to attract and hold the next higher energy of consciousness.

    Spreading Joy: How To Cheer Yourself Up (Bitesize Wisdom #152)

    Spreading Joy: How To Cheer Yourself Up (Bitesize Wisdom #152)

    Today's quote is by Mark Twain, “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.”  

    We're living in crazy times right now, and we all could use a little cheering up. Unfortunately, modern life in many parts of the world has encouraged more selfish ways of living, of being. It’s a dog eat dog kind of world out there. Which has become a big source for stress and unhappiness for many.
