greetings to all ~ i have just a few final words to share here.

over the past few weeks i've found myself entering a phase of my
awakening wherein "feeling" is rapidly replacing "thinking". like
most of you, i've read reams of info and engaged in countless
discussions and debates over the years, both online and off,
regarding the essence of consciousness and its roll in creating all
of the various infinite realities/experiences - all that is.

now i'm finding that the very wordiness of such esoteric discussion
is becoming more and more distasteful - even abhorrent to me (even
the effort of conveying these thoughts feels somewhat yucky). my ego
is not at all pleased with this development but, hey, it's all part
of the letting-go process for me. in making the conscious decision
to live from my heart rather that my head, it seems to be a natural
and necessary next step; one which i have chosen to fully embrace.

the heart is all about pure feeling - a direct line to source. the
mind is all about attempting to interpret what the heart feels and
then integrating that data with past experience - usually very
inefficiently - in order to come up with a "future" game plan, none
of which has anything to do with being in the moment. for me, living
from the heart is all about living completely within the infinite
moment which, like the smell of a rose, cannot be described or, like
truth, cannot be universally defined (both can only be
experienced). "linear" constructs simply can't exist there.

i feel that i am finally beginning comprehend the full meaning of
lao tzu's dictum:
"those who know do not speak; those who speak do not know".

ok - i've rambled enough, and this is all coming out pretty
disjointed anyway! adios, amigos - i wish you all wellness and
happiness! :o)

hello steve and thank you so much for sharing this and trying to put it into
words,


>over the past few weeks i've found myself entering a phase of my
>awakening wherein "feeling" is rapidly replacing "thinking".


i am sure you felt the resonance from my heart when i read that line for it
is exactly what i have been experiencing as well. it is such a wonderful
feeling to shift your attention from thinking to the the feelings that are
so intimately connected to your thoughts. about a week ago i felt inspired
to start a book about simple thoughts that make me feel good after thinking
them. the title for now is "desire goodness...think good...feel
god...attract god...allow good...receive goodness" the idea came to me
after reading abraham's latest book "ask and it is given, learning to
manifest your desires" which i highly reccomend to anyone else going through
this shift from thinking/head to feeling/heart which i am pretty sure is
everyone for that is the essence of fourth density:)

well i just would like you to reassure you that you are not alone in this
decision and i would love for you to continue sharing your experiences with
this shift

just beautiful...the best way i can describe what i have been experiencing
lately is like a shift or even a merger from "i am" which would represent
the mind/the ego to "all is" which would represent the heart/infinte being.
"i am is all...all is i am."

>i feel that i am finally beginning comprehend the full meaning of

i hear that and would add "if it doesn't feel good when you think it then
don't say it"

thanks again for sharing...peace

you're not alone steve. i've recently been going through a lot of the
same feelings. i actually felt depressed for about 3-4 weeks and
retracted from pretty much all of my extraneous "knowledge
gathering/integrating" and socializing. stopped reading all of my
current books (9 at the same time probably wasn't a good idea anyway)
and just coiled up to "not think" for a while.
i'm slowly coming out again, but my perspective has changed
considerably and i have an openness to letting things just be as they
are without feeling like i have to be in control.
language is simply too limiting to get where i know i'm going in the
time-period ahead. i wish you well on your journey and your moment.

peace be with you.

~will
