To realize freedom the mind has to learn to look at life, which is a vast movement, without the bondage of time, for freedom lies beyond the field of consciousness — care for watching, but don’t stop and interpret “I am free,” then you’re living in a memory of something that has gone before.

You know what I want to think of myself? As a human being. Because, I mean I don’t want to be like “As Confucius say”, but under the sky, under the heavens there is but one family. It just so happens that people are different.

To spend time is to pass it in a specified manner. To waste time is to expend it thoughtlessly or carelessly. We all have time to spend or waste, and it is our decision what to do with it. But once passed, it is gone forever.

All types of knowledge, ultimately mean self knowledge.

What we are after is the root, and not the branches. The root is the real knowledge; the branches are surface knowledge. Real knowledge breeds “body feel” and personal expression; surface knowledge breeds mechanical conditioning and imposing limitation and squelches creativity.

A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract; and when he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, “I” do not hit, “it” hits all by itself.

Don’t think, feel….it is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory!

Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.

Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.

Emptiness the starting point. In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend, drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is useful? Because it is empty.

Image - Taijitu polarity by Nyo public domainWhat IS is more important than WHAT SHOULD BE. To many people are looking at “what is” from a position of thinking “what should be.”

Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Flow in the living moment. — We are always in a process of becoming and nothing is fixed. Have no rigid system in you, and you’ll be flexible to change with the ever changing.

Open yourself and flow, my friend. Flow in the total openness of the living moment. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.

You cannot force the Now. But can you neither condemn nor justify and yet be extraordinarily alive as you walk on? You can never invite the wind, but you must leave the window open.

In science we have finally come back to the pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus, who said everything is flow, flux, process. There are no “things.” Nothingness in Eastern language is “no-thingness”. We in the West think of nothingness as a void, an emptiness, an nonexistence. In Eastern philosophy and modern physical science, nothingness “no-thingness”, is a form of process, ever moving.

The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into a pattern of systems.

If thought exists, I who think and the world about which I think also exist; the one exists but for the other, having no possible separation between them. Therefore, the world and I are both in active correlation; I am that which sees the world, and the world is that which is seen by me. I exist for the world and the world exists for me. … One sure and primary and fundamental fact is the joint existence of a subject and of its world. The one does not exist without the other. I acquire no understanding of myself except as I take account of objects, of the surroundings. I do not think unless I think of things — and there I find myself.

The man who is really serious, with the urge to find out what truth is, has no style at all. He lives only in what is.

Life is never stagnation. It is constant movement, unrhythmic movement, as we as constant change. Things live by moving and gain strength as they go.

The intangible represents the real power of the universe. It is the seed of the tangible.

Balance your thoughts with action. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.

Liberate yourself from concepts and see the truth with your own eyes. It exists HERE and NOW; it requires only one thing to see it: openness, freedom, the freedom to be open and not tethered by any ideas, concepts, etc. When our mind is tranquil, there will be an occasional pause to its feverish activities, there will be a let-go, and it is only then in the interval between two thoughts that a flash of UNDERSTANDING, understanding, which is not thought, can take place.

Possession of anything begins in the mind.

Thoughts are things.

Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal.

The intangible represents the real power of the universe. It is the seed of the tangible.

The spirit of the individual is determined by his dominating thought habits.

This writing can be less demanding should I allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I’ve come to understand that life is best to be lived, not to be conceptualized. If you have to think, you still do not understand.

The change is from inner to outer. We start by dissolving our attitude not by altering outer conditions.

A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

Don’t fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.

Point Of Power

Peter Baksa - Point Of PowerToday I purchased 3 books which I believe will also interest you. You can find out more about each, in the descriptions below.

During May this year, Peter will have another book for us also.

FREE BOOKS ALERT! Before you read on…

All day Sunday 9 March and all day Monday 10 March, 2014 (USA Eastern time zone) two of Peter’s books will be FREE for you to collect.
The two that will be FREE are at the following two links on Amazon… The Point Of Power and What You Think Of Me.

cover - Faith Wave by Peter Baksa Peter’s new book book will offer an innovative approach to the way universe works based on findings of Max Planck, Steven Hawking and the findings are used by all entrepreneurs and successful people.

The message in that book is so great that it appeals, and can be applied by everyone. Everyone, regardless of circumstances, can achieve incredible results. Peter used techniques that he writes about in his books to achieve this own success.

Keep an eye out for Faith Wave, release date May 15th, 2014.

When it’s ready, I’ll add it to my collection of recommended reading, here.

In Faith Wave, Peter Baksa reviews how manifestation works and the quantum mechanics that support it. Then, in an interesting turn, he reviews the tenets of six major world religions, focuses on their teachings of prayer and meditation, and shows how these ancient truths mesh with manifestation.

While you wait, you too can collect and read and use, Peter Baksa’s other 3 books, already listed here.
  
Every day, many people wish for their lives to be different. They can picture a new life, yet their ego really focuses on what they do not have or cannot get. This sets up resistance to the new life they seek.

Point Of PowerDiscerning the lack (that is the basis of resistance) as the contrast to what one seeks can lead to desire, which then can become an intention and attention to the beliefs and emotions of already having it (detachment).

The Law of Attraction states that whatever you focus on and intend in your life, shall be delivered to you.

In The Point Of Power, Peter proposes to set forth and illustrate the three principles – intend, declare, and detach – that together explain how to operate the law.

How it works is explained by reviewing the insights of Quantum Mechanics. Examples, including some from the author’s life, help illustrate the steps.

Trouble-shooting chapters show the reasons that the New Age; Mind, Body, Spirit; and science spirituality movements have mostly missed their goals.It's None Of My Business What You Think Of Me

You’ll enjoy the message inside It’s None Of My Business What You Think Of Me.

Life is a series of contracts the ego makes with itself, reality is the shadow these contracts put upon our souls.

Just as a businessman makes a contract with other businessmen, so too does your ego make contracts. These contracts begin when you are a child, and you unknowingly enter into them with your parents, friends, teachers, employers, and the mass media.

These contracts will make you poor, sad, and unhealthy if they are kept. Our ego tells us how much time and effort to spend in getting others to approve of us.

Everyone goes through a domestication period-a time where others tell us what we should eat, act like, want, and not want. This domestication period ends when we decide that it has ended.

We all know about emotion baggage, the stains upon our inner selves, and the weights around our ankles that keep us from being what we could.

Identify and remove these ankle weights now.

Think Yourself Young - Peter Baksa In Peter’s third book, Think Yourself Young, we examine some of the mis-perceptions connected up with why we age.

This book looks into why such concepts are wrong and even the thought of them, harmful.

It is said that death and aging are inevitable parts of life, but is this the whole truth? Can life be greatly extended, age postponed?

If belief in a thing makes it so, then there is a way out of the cycle of aging and death.

Abandon the mis-perceptions of life and aging, summon up the courage to face life’s simple fundamental truths, and you can lead a more youthful joyous life, by simply making the right physical, mental, and dietary changes to your current lifestyle.

With the help of the latest research in medical science, quantum mechanics, and a look back to ancient texts, we will see how the aging process that humans experience is largely preventable, and in some cases reversible.

World Day of Social Justice

image - thinking-about-powerFebruary 20 is World Day Of Social Justice.

We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

Together, by valuing the Integrity of our fellow man, we can renew the human species. Together, we can invest in the value of souls; rescuing not only Mother Nature, but also the natural state of being.

Together, we can promote peace and connect with each other. Together, we can choose to practice dignity, responsibility, integrity and honor. Together, we can overcome the inertia of complacency: doing this not for the publicity, but because it is the right thing to do.

Together, we can slowly make a difference. It has ALWAYS been our choice!

Wayne Dyer was angry, with good reason…

wayne-dyer-nick-ortner-tapping-videoAt the age of 34 Wayne Dyer drove to Biloxi, Mississippi to visit the grave of his father, an alcoholic and abusive man who had abandoned him, his mother and two brothers the day he was born.

Although he had died 10 years earlier, Wayne had only just found out about his death.

He drove to the grave that day with a level of anger so great, so deep from years of hurt built up, that he went there with two tasks in mind: To find out if it was even acknowledged on his death certificate that Wayne was his son, and to literally “pee” on the grave of the father that he held all this hatred, anger and resentment towards for 34 years.

What came out of that visit however, completely and forever changed his life. It is one of the most beautiful stories you’ll ever hear. It shares a message of forgiveness and it’s power to transform that I think is truly life-changing and worth your time to listen to.

He tells this story, and much more, in this exclusive interview with Nick Ortner, conducted for the upcoming 6th annual Tapping World Summit, which starts on February 24th.

If you had been in Wayne’s shoes, would you have been able to forgive?

Who do you have in YOUR life that you need to forgive? How would it change your life to forgive and release any anger, resentment, hatred or other negative emotions that you carry, towards BOTH others as well as yourself? (Remember the forgiving yourself part!)

Most people today know Wayne Dyer for his best-selling books (having sold literally hundreds of millions of copies), his Public Broadcasting Station television specials, and his heart-warming and thought-provoking talks… however, do not know that up to that point in his life when he visited his father’s grave, he was overweight, drinking heavily, and was as he describes himself, “Basically on an involuntary suicide mission”.

Yet, he was able to radically transform, through the power of forgiveness, and in this video, as well as the upcoming 6th annual Tapping World Summit, you’ll learn how to do the same, to radically improve the quality of your own life.

I hope you take a few minutes to watch this video, and I highly recommend attending the 10 day Tapping World Summit, which begins on February 24th.

This event has had over a million people attend it over the last 5 years. It is a huge, life-changing, no-cost event.

One of my favorite parts of the videos is Wayne’s “plane story” where he came out of the bathroom on a plane covered in sweat from head to toe. It’s hilarious and will having you laughing out loud. It’s at about 20 minutes. Make sure to check it out!
