A Reality Practice
Suggested practice to gain freedom from self-limitation.
It is suggested that what is actual and real in the world can only be experienced in the ongoing moment (by moment) and that to be fully in the moment can only happen if all ideas and beliefs about it are gone from the psyche ? including the sense of "I", of self identity.
Look at every idea, belief, or truth about life, no matter how unquestionable it may be, and ask: "Is this thing I believe, or someone else wants me to believe, actual and demonstrable to me or others? (For example, "We all have souls": Ask, "Show me.")
If it can't be shown or isn't demonstrable in any way that someone who doesn't already believe it can experience, then just put it aside.
Not believing it or disbelieving it. (The idea being believed may actually be a reflection of what is real. Blind disbelieving can also be a manifestation of some other belief.)
(A suggested definition of Belief: "An idea of how things are that is only demonstrably real to those who hold the same idea as real.")
The more we put aside all ideas about what is real, the more we will begin to experience and live what is real, with an increasing clarity and freedom.
It is not as easy as it may sound, because most of our ideas and beliefs are so built-in to our natures that it is almost impossible to see them.
Also, the mind can take on new ideas such as "I'm now free of all beliefs" as another belief. Our psyches are very clever at this, so great diligence and attention is needed to not be taken in by more and more subtle beliefs.
As a "spiritual" practice, this has directness, simplicity and tangible results.
It needs no acceptance of complex idea structures that we need to believe in or practice, to become "enlightened", whatever that idea means.
It only needs our real intention for complete self honesty and the paying of full objective attention to what is in front of us.
Of course, this article also needs to be put aside and not believed or disbelieved ? just pay attention to what is in front of you at any moment and discover for yourself what is actual and real.

Taking The Leap
Every four years, February gives us a whole 24 hours of bonus footage to add to our year. Many people take this opportunity to "do something special" with their extra day. But why wait for Leap Day? Why not celebrate the "leaps" and risks we take every day when we venture outside of our comfort zone or work to improve our lives? Of course change, especially life-altering change, is bone-shakingly frightening sometimes. The whole concept is fraught with a veritable minefield of "what ifs" that can be hard for us to see and get past in order to reach the destination point where our dreams lie. So I offer you the following "what ifs" along with some answers to help you take that leap, whatever it may be, and land safely on the other side!
Are You A Visionary
Dreams may seem unimportant in your quest for success. And it's true that ordinary dreams are often a mix of what happened during your day --plus some "wild" random associations.
Visualisation plays a very important role with the mind and body relationship. Visualisation and Imagination are quite similiar. Visualisation is the picturing power of your mind. Your mind is like a camera constantly taking pictures of things around you. You are the star of your show. There is no one to give orders to your mind. The images you hold in your mind will determine the kind of life you will lead. When you first start to work with visualisation it is normally the imagination that comes to play. Visualisation takes time and practise to acquire. When working with visualisation it is important that one practises regularly. Try to practise at the same time each day, by doing that it becomes a habit.

Within You Lies All You Need
Within is the person we really are. Within lies our very existence. And only from within can we make it happen. This is where our very all subsists. Within you is the ability, the "what it takes" to make it all happen for you, just the way you want it. WITHIN! WITHIN!! WITHIN!!! Oh what a place! This is the only place that will ever always and fully be yours. The only domain where you are king indeed. Not even the future or the past holds a stake high enough to be compared to that within you. The renowned jurist, Oliver Wendell Homes couldn't have said it better when he remarked, "What lies ahead of us and what lies behind us are nothing compared to what LIES WITHIN US". The past haven gone and the future waiting beyond, you are left with but one great option - That which is within you. Your very bird in hand. I want you to realize that your best bet is in all that you are potentially endowed with within, though it may not appear, as it ought to be at present.
