Stinky Little Ego!

"If you are willing to look
at another person's behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of
their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your
value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react
a kid growing up in the streets of NYC you had to have a tough skin.
The boys in my neighborhood called each other by their distinguishing
characteristics. Among the girls or parent's I was Larry but amongst
the local kids, my friends, I was called the Beak, because my nose bent
like a bird's beak. The local kids had no inhibitions about calling the
small wiry kid, Mouse or the heavy-set kid, Fat Stuff. Eye glassed kids
were Four Eyes and the neighborhood was complete with Dumb Shit and
various other insulting names. The amazing thing, amongst these boy's,
no one seemed to get insulted. I'm sure some did but no one showed it.
No one seemed to take it personal. In fact, we made fun of our
idiosyncrasies daily. It wasn't considered cruel or outrageous
behavior. If you had a name, as ugly or stupid as it might have seen to
outsiders, in our collective it meant you were loved and part of a
group that was there for each other, thick or thin. If you gave
it to somebody verbally, you would most assuredly get it back and
everyone would laugh at the silly exchange of insults.
we've come a long way since then.
Most of us think before we talk and we are sensitive to how people will
respond to our verbal quips. For some, watching their tongue is just a
matter of political correctness, for others, being sensitive is about
kindness and thoughtfulness. I know you might think if you tell me I'm
getting fat, I will have a revelation or some sort of epiphany and
correct the error of my ways immediately. But it doesn't work like that
and furthermore NEVER has worked like that. Don't you think I look in
the mirror? If I'm really stuck in my melodrama, your sharing of "the truth"
to somehow shock me into awakening will just make things worse.
the truth but let it be kind and helpful."
responsibility for your words is about how you use or misuse your
power, how you transmit your energy verbally. Learning to use your
words is a powerful spiritual practice.

spiritual mentor, the great meditation master Hilda Charlton was a
surgeon when it came to uncovering the ego's hiding places. She would
teach that anyone that could press your buttons and get under your skin
was showing you your inequities, pointing out your weaknesses, the
places you can still get stuck spiritually.
In essence, people who press your buttons are your
teachers and they are giving you valuable teachings.

consider what they have shared. Then look inside of yourself honestly;
if it really is your issue, even though what they shared might have
been rude and insensitive, you be strong and brave and address it. Make
believe it didn't come from them but from someone you highly respect.
If after considering it a time, you recognize that it's their problem,
their issue not yours, then you have responded correctly to them by
saying you will consider it, so just carry on. Also remember, if you
react to it, it has now become your problem.
REMEMBER: The path of self-realization is about mastering
your lower self.
Your little stinky EGO will do anything to keep you from

Every experience is an opportunity, a lesson;
every person is your teacher, your guide.

Sometimes the universe gives us lessons and direction
through other people. Change the way you think. Nobody can verbally violate
you unless you believe you are being violated. Make believe everywhere
you're sent, you're being sent for a reason. Sometimes to grow and
learn, sometimes to serve and uplift, even sometimes to teach.
Find your lessons in all things, become like a child and make believe
this is an interactive universe. A universe that is constantly pushing
you to grow.

How To Awaken
by Larry Heisler, M.A.,
We humans have explored the
farthest regions of outer space,
have probed the deepest depths of the oceans, have split the atom, and
discovered that our entire world of matter is made of waves and particles
of light but for most of history we haven't had a clue about our inner
That Clueless Time Is
the word is out,
the battle for the future is on,
It's Time to Awaken,
come into your power by becoming fully conscious.
The only way to do that is by going inward,
by meeting your higher self,
by mastering meditation.
if you ever really, sincerely want to know God
you will have to go inward.
It is not a coincidence,
that virtually every
religion and spiritual pathway
now and throughout history has taught the same maxim,
THE PATH TO LIBERATION IS INSIDE YOU.
The way to awaken this profound liberated self,
whether you want to call it truth,
Oneness, God, Spirit or just your higher self,
is by training your brain with daily exercises that involve
attention, breath and concentration.
"If you want to find God,
hang out in the space between your thoughts."
From every corner of
from every race and religion,
from every time throughout recorded history
come sages, seers and wise ones
teaching the ancient spiritual meditation techniques
of turning inward, making your mind like a crystal clear lake with no
ripples and becoming at one with your "true, higher self."
From Jesus to the Bal Shem Tov,
from Buddha to Sai Baba,
from St. Theresa to Lao Tzu,
has been the key
There are many different ways to quiet your mind
and align with your higher self and it doesn't have to take on a
religious tone either.
Some martial arts students practice I Chuan,
the standing meditation.
I entitled it,
the Smiling Buddha Exercise.
Simply extend you arms out in front of your shoulders as if you were
hugging a tree, make your body completely relaxed, breathe deeply and
smile. This exercise will empower you and strengthen your body as it
dramatically boosts your immune system.
The smiling part is the key to opening your heart.
Now do this daily for longer and longer amounts of time.
You can work with a focused breathing like the Zen Buddhists do in
Zazen, or deeply immerse yourself by contemplating spiritual themes and
prayers. You can begin the repetition of sacred words called mantras, or
by singing and chanting the names of God in sacred songs called bhajans.
You can also be mindful of every present action and completely live in
My revered teacher, the meditation master Hilda Charlton taught the
easiest path to oneness is the Bhakti Path.
Bhakti is the path of the heart where the student (chela) learns to
cultivate endless thankfulness, love and devotion.
For the Bhakta (an individual that follows the path of the heart),
love is the answer to the question how.
When you are completely empty,
you come into your true higher power.

"Through the study of books one seeks God;
by meditation one finds him."
Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina
This concept of training or evolving your brain is so important and wide
ranging historically that there are many archaeologists who believe the
emergence of focused attention in ancient campfire rituals increased homo
sapiens brain capacity thus contributing to the final phases of human
biological evolution. And there are so many scientific studies on
meditation and brain research
going on right now around the world,
the flood of results coming in are extraordinary.
Research shows that meditation may stimulate the growth of new brain
cells in the frontal cortex and increased brain volume is a very big
deal. The frontal cortex is our Command Central for decision making,
problem solving, motivation, good judgement, planning and some important
emotional considerations as well
Meditation is the key
Simply start by doing breathing exercises to calm down the monkey
mind. Five, ten minutes everyday. Any yogic breathing exercises will do.
Work with your breath and maybe do a little visualization, like breathing
love or light into your heart and on the exhale, seeing the energy travel
up your spine. Hilda believed the easiest way to go into deep
meditation was to do heart centered practice. She would have us do heart
or devotional breathing. Breath love into your heart, breathe it out to
the world. Breathe love into your heart, breathe it up your spine out the
top of your head. As you go deeper and deeper into one pointed awareness,
you will begin to experience wonderful things. Hilda said its easier to
rise in love than to just work with your breath or a mantra. But anyway
you do it,
consistent meditation practice leads to Liberation!
Stop playing around and get spiritual.
"I'm simply saying that there is a way to be sane. I'm
saying that you can get rid of all this insanity created by the past in
you. Just by being a simple witness of your thought processes.
It is simply sitting
silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing,
not interfering not even judging, because the moment you judge you have
lost the pure witness. The moment you say "this is good, this is
bad," you have already jumped onto the thought process.
It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness
and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise,
that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher.
And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real
religion. Because as you become more and more deeply rooted in
witnessing, thoughts start disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly

the class of 2017, I'll say this:
choose your words wisely,
not only the ones you say to others, but the ones you say to yourself.
Don't take anything personally. Accept both praise and criticism equally.
But take neither to heart. Never assume. Don't ever judge a book by its
cover. The truth is there are many surprises awaiting you on your
journey. Pursue perfection. And although you'll never achieve that,
remember to demand excellence and as your parents and teachers have
always said, just do your best. Today marks the end of one chapter in
your life, and the beginning of another. Enjoy the book. You're the one
writing it." Jon Bon Jovi
David Hawkins Quotes
"Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by
being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in
all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself.
This is the greatest gift anyone can give."
"Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of
awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and
"All judgment reveals itself to be self-judgment in the end, and
when this is understood a larger comprehension of the nature of life
takes its place."
