Osho is one of many revolutionary spiritual figures who encourages people to free themselves from the prison they’ve created in their minds, which is easier to escape than they think.

He’s reminded people that the greatest fulfillment comes with the joy of simply being, and instead of constantly falling prey to the mind, we should stop, become still and silent, and observe it. We’ll grow closer with true peace if we do this often, and meditation could eventually become a huge part of our life. We might wonder how we lived without it, and we’ll never know what the present moment has for us if we don’t slow down and explore it. Continue reading

Video: The Signs of a Worldwide Transformation

I made this video the same day I made the one I posted a few days ago. Here, I share some of the signs of an ongoing worldwide spiritual transformation that I’ve noticed, and we can be a part of it if we open up to it and allow it to become a part of our lives.

Sorry for the noises you can hear in the background occasionally and the noise from my laptop. I’ll work on finding a solution, and thanks for your patience in the meantime. :)

Is Abandoning Materiality Really Necessary?

If you consider yourself a spiritual seeker, then you’re probably familiar with the concept of renouncing the world in favor of spirituality.

A lot of gurus throughout the years have encouraged people to give up their material desires and their general interest in the world, and those of us who want to evolve but enjoy being a part of life on earth have wondered where the line can be drawn. Do we really have to give ourselves up and completely renounce the world to evolve, or is there a middle ground we can take that’ll allow us to progress just as quickly?

I don’t think giving up the world is entirely necessary, but there are aspects of ourselves we might want to examine and let go of if needed. I refer mainly to the ego-centered aspects that are obsessed with materiality and the endless cultural distractions that bombard us daily. The ego isn’t inherently bad, but like anything else, it can hold us back if we don’t keep it in check. Continue reading

Don’t Be Afraid to Take the Next Step

If you’ve found your purpose in life, it’s time to stop hesitating, stop being afraid and dive headfirst into it. You’ll continue to keep yourself from the life you want if you don’t, and a purposeless life is usually caused by a fear of failure or success. This fear can either stop us or motivate us, and we’ll be constantly disappointed with life if we let it stop us.

Until we confront it and the hesitation that comes with it, we’ll never live the life we want or enjoy the work that comes with it. Instead of giving it so much power over us, we can realize its potential as a motivator and let it inspire us to live with passion and purpose. For a lot of us, our purpose lies in our creativity and the medium we’ve chosen to get our truth out to the world, such as writing, music or painting, and these things challenge us to either give into our fears or use them as inspiration to succeed.

Once we discover what we want to do and we’re at least somewhat motivated to do it, embracing it and working hard will allow us to get the most out of it. I won’t lie to you – being creative is a lot of work, whether you write articles and books, compose music, paint uplifting and inspiring pictures, or anything else. There will be days when you don’t feel like you’re getting much out of it, and these are the most important times to keep going. Continue reading

Love for the Enemy: Forgiving the Corrupt Elite

Since I write about bringing down the corrupt elite and their oppressive system, I also like to remind people why forgiveness is important. Without forgiveness, we can’t do anything significant to change the world because we’ll be locked in a revenge-seeking mindset from which we won’t escape until we can forgive.

Forgiveness is the key out of our suffering and our need for revenge, whereas a vengeful mindset will ensure we never evolve from our current level.

People are going to be mad when the elite are exposed. There’s no way to avoid it, and if you think about it, you really can’t blame them. The elite have abused our human rights and committed horrible crimes against the earth and humanity just to push their agendas forward, and with the way our society is, you can bet people will want to hurt them.

Awakening and Moral Responsibility

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” – Rumi

This morning, I felt the need to meditate on the moral responsibility of people who consider themselves ‘awake’ or ‘conscious’. As I did, two thoughts came to mind. One is that we aren’t here to be perfect, and our mistakes teach us and help us evolve. The other is that despite this, we have a responsibility to set an example that the world can live by.

It requires balance, because we have to give ourselves the room to make mistakes while trying to live the changes we want the world to embrace. Since we know that our actions affect the rest of the world, how can we set an example while giving ourselves room to make necessary mistakes? Continue reading

The Throat Chakra: The Center of Self-Expression

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

The chakras are the subtle body’s energy centers, and they bring through the energy that’s responsible for our reality and the higher dimensions we have yet to experience. They connect us with our creator and our higher consciousness, and understanding them can allow us to tap into the energy that pours through them.

The throat chakra has to do with communication, self-expression and other qualities on which most creative people rely. It allows us to communicate our feelings about life, spirituality, society and anything we think is important, and it gives us the confidence to use our voice without worrying what other people think. Even if we’re misunderstood or rejected, we’ll know our desire to help the world evolve (and the work that results from it) is genuine. Continue reading
