Recipe For Life

How does it feel to move forward in life? Notice the different areas, one at a time: Relationship, career, financial, health or even spiritual ‘progress’. There is medicine in the sensations that arise as we consider moving forward in each area of life. Our body will let us know what the current layer is through sensation. This is the current layer of resistance, belief or judgement that doesn’t serve the highest good. This is the mantle that guides us through. Always start where you are and see what arises in this recipe for life.

Sometimes we move forward in baby steps.  Other times we may be out of the gate like a race horse. This is perfect. Your heart knows when to be the tortoise and when to be the hare. As we create our life and resolve what’s not serving us in the present, we notice forward movement. This is the case for every area of life. See for yourself as you let the heart guide you forward via your feeling nature.

Wisdom to Know the Difference

We handle the things that we can handle; the things we have access to. There are some things that we can’t handle, at least in the present experience. There is wisdom in knowing the difference, as they say. The wisdom comes from being present and feeling our way through. This is living with God, Creator, Source, Divine Mother, or whatever you like to refer to that as. 

This is a sweet way to live because it takes the burden of proof off of us as individuals. We merge with the big “I” in the present. No mind is necessary. There is so much there for us in that experience. In that – we know what serves us and our community. We don’t have to figure it all out ahead of time. We go from ‘oh!’ to ‘ahhhhh’.

The Ultimate Spiritual Path

Someone recently asked me, “What is the ultimate spiritual path?” I feel that forgiveness is key to releasing the past and moving forward spiritually. Regular mantra meditation supports us releasing our attachment to the mind. Vipassana and mindfulness are a blessing as well. A good religion can point to truth and the Creator’s good works through us. There are many, many paths, but I really feel the ultimate spiritual path is the path of no path.

What does that even mean, ‘the path of no path’? How do I follow that path, you might ask. The answer is, well, you don’t. You don’t do anything. You are already that. It’s the path of surrender; the path of letting go. The awareness that arises in this experience is our connection to Creator or Source. There is one small issue with this: The mind. Since the mind doesn’t understand this, it doesn’t like it. So how do we navigate this gate keeper of the mind?

The mind doesn’t fit.

A more important question might be, why do we need the mind to like this path of no path? The mind is fixated on ‘doing something to get something’.  This doesn’t fit into our experience of no path. In order to bypass the mind, it comes down to one question. Where is our attention in the moment?

There may be thoughts, but is our attention on the thoughts, or is our attention on what’s deeper? Is our attention on where thoughts arise from or on the thoughts themselves? Is our attention on the breath? Our attention can be on stillness or silence between, before and after thoughts arise, yes?

Let’s keep it simple.

So, there are many beautiful paths. My preference is the path of ‘no path’ because it’s already here. It doesn’t require a hundred years of austerity or living in a cave. You don’t have to renounce relationships. You can even have a job. It might not always feel good, and so the mind looks for a way around. Invariably it realizes there isn’t one. It realizes that the way out is through. I feel this is the ultimate spiritual path. This work is about clearing our perception to see what’s already here. -John Newton, from his Monday Call Series

Unleashing Abundance

unleash abundance

To unleash abundance, notice everything around us is abundant. It is the bounty of the Universe.  It doesn’t necessarily mean money.  Our definition of abundance is the ability to have and do what it is that you want to have and do – when you want to have and do it.  Abundance represents our flow. Our connection to the Infinite is our allowance as we are God’s paintbrush.  The Creator doesn’t have form except through Its creation – which is us.

Notice what is coming up for you around the issue of abundance in your life.  See the core beliefs and the reflective patterns that keep showing up.  What accompanying sensations do you notice in your body?  We don’t have to get rid of these feelings we have even if they feel less than optimal.  Let’s just pay attention to them – accept what’s here inside the body. Fully accepting whatever sensations that are arising around this issue and embracing them, appreciating them, loving them is the key to moving forward.

A Divine Meeting

Birthing abundance doesn’t always feel good. It’s not necessarily a straight line. Sometimes we hit a curve or a bump. Sometimes we get angled into a trajectory where we need to go, but the ego doesn’t want to go there.  That is going to feel like tension. It’s going to feel uncomfortable. But as we surrender into that sensation, into that direct experience, we get insight, information and guidance. This is how intelligent you are – not the mind, but the body and heart.  That’s how nature works.  We want to make sure that we’re aligned with it’s intelligence.”  – John Newton from “Unleashing Abundance” Weekly Call Topic   www.healthbeyondbelief.com

The True Nature of Love

true nature of love

When we give ourselves permission to be where we are, without judgment, we begin to see our true nature. We see the true nature of love.  Can we love where we are?  Are we willing to love this here and now experience even when it doesn’t feel ‘good’?  Especially when it doesn’t feel good?  Something magical happens when we follow through with this.  If we’re always trying to get ‘there’, we’re never okay with ‘here’.  ‘There’ keeps alluding us because when we get to where we thought ‘there’ was, it extends off even farther still.  

The True Nature of Love

If we allow ourselves to be ‘here’ and accept and surrender and appreciate and feel this now ‘here-ness’ without conditions, we’re back in the flow of Intelligence; the flow of well-being.  We’re in that ‘I am’ state of being, and then ‘there’ becomes ‘here’ because it’s a frequency match.  If we lower our vibration through judgment, expectation, or past imprints that we refuse to forego, forgive, or move forward from – then we aren’t loving ourself nor can we be open to love from others.

It’s a beautiful thing to surrender to where we are and see what we feel. This is the opposite of the judgment that kept us bound to the past; kept us feeling stuck.  We want to go as deep as we can; to where there’s no depth left.  This is absolute surrender. In that, true love arises. The kind of true love that doesn’t need an object or a person. It just is, and that is your true nature.  ~ John Newton from “The True Nature of Love” Weekly Call Series Topic

Stillness Leads to Forgiveness

power of stillness

When we are in doubt or feeling turmoil in life, sometimes all that is needed is stillness. We stop everything for a moment and allow our experience of Divine intelligence to be revealed. The power of stillness is inspiring. This awareness of truth isn’t a mental understanding as much as it is a willingness to be present at the deepest level of being.

When we invite all body sensation into our field, pleasant or not, we release the spin of judgment and see the lie of the mind for what it is: A shadow of the truth. The mind may not care for this state of surrender because it has no power here in the present.

Practice the Power of Stillness

The next stage is to witness the unraveling of the past as sensations move through our body like a wave.  We were meant to feel and it is your nature to do so.  Judgement is not your friend here, however forgiveness is.  

Sometimes it’s as simple as asking for help.  If you could ask a local council member to help with an important need in the community that could work.  But what if you had the prime minister on speed dial?  Wouldn’t that be better?  In regards to forgiveness and releasing the past, I feel it’s best to go to the big boss – The Creator.  

With a simple recipe including humility and gratitude, you find old pain, hurts and resentments melt away. This kind of process allows the body to heal, release stress and find peace in the nervous system.  But first we find stillness.  All arises from there.  Be still and know the “I Am” is ever present and all possible futures are available in this field.  – John Newton http://www.healthbeyondbelief.com

Aging Powerfully

Aging

I see this life we are living as a chapter in a book.  It is one chapter however, and not the whole story.  If we we want to experience aging powerfully, we must release our attachments to the past.  The more we clear and resolve things that are not of our truth and embrace more consciousness;  the more God or Source perspective we have. It is in this ‘now’ experience, the more powerful we become throughout the book of our soul.

Is your life story worth reading?

Are you enjoying the story of your life? If it were available in print, would you consider it a valuable read? Ideally, we want our life to be exciting and lived full-out. If we are playing small, this could be a major regret at the end of this life chapter. Are you okay with that? Often times people live a default life of ‘just getting by’. If this your experience, chances are since you’ve read this far, you are ready for something new; something more.

Consider two distinct perspectives:  There’s fate – a beginning and an end to this chapter and it is determined ahead of time as it is already written. This is true from one perspective.  But from the perspective of this work, you’re shifting from what was written over to the blank page of the present moment.  This is where all paths are available and any story can now be written no matter what has come before.

Aging powerfully sometimes requires a little work.

So many seek the easy way – the quick fix, particularly as we face aging.  Sometimes we discover the greatest rewards when we move through a bit of resistance and not around it. This is not unlike giving birth.  Our free will is like a muscle and the more we use it, the stronger it gets.  No pain, no gain as they say.

As you work through and release old resentments, regrets and other karma from the past and embrace more consciousness, all bets are off.  You are sliding your frequency to a another perspective that includes an entirely different version of the book.  When you live in this ‘write-as-you-go’ perspective of all possibility, you’re a completely different being in every moment.  In conclusion, this end of the chapter is just another beginning.” ~John Newton from his weekly call series

Ending Chronic Pain

chronic pain

For people that suffer from chronic pain, life can be a constant struggle. Chronic pain can make it impossible for them to see who they would be without it. Over time the brain forms neural pathways that form a closed loop of suffering. If we want help ending chronic pain, we must look outside of this vicious circle.

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. That’s more than a third of the population. The estimates for the financial cost of this are now around $650 billion a year in the United States alone.  When something hurts, the majority of people ignore it, or take a pill so that it goes away.  That’s like a pilot covering up an engine warning light instead of landing the plane and addressing the problem.  

If you think about it, it’s quite absurd that we try and get rid of the very thing that’s trying to get our attention.  I am not saying not to take pills. I am suggesting however, that we might want to look deeper into the root of it. The cause of why our body isn’t healing on it’s own needs addressing.  We have a highly sensitive nervous system and it gives us feedback on virtually every experience we have.  If we don’t give our attention to the subtle warning signs, they tend to get bigger over time – often turning into chronic experiences. 

A way out of chronic pain

What this work and many studies have shown is that chronic physical pain and unresolved emotional hurts are often intertwined.  We are not discounting actual injuries, conditions or even our diagnosis.  However, when things aren’t healing on their own, we may need to look deeper. It may serve us to see old emotional hurts that may be creating stress in our lives. This are unresolved experiences that our bodies still remember. Studies show that stress not only affects our ability to heal, but also a myriad of other aspects of life.  When we resolve this stress at the root level, this may help us align with a life free of pain. A life of possibility.

Your body is intelligent.

Our bodies are intelligent.  We evolved from primordial soup.  This intelligence inside of us is like an organic supercomputer.  It has access to far more than the mind. Our brain is more like a hard drive with a fixed amount of memory.   Our inner Intelligence that is beyond the mind, is unlimited because our consciousness is unlimited.  The only limitation to consciousness is our experience of it – the depth to which we surrender to it.  

Are you committed to ending chronic pain? They say if we keep doing the same thing, we get the same result. Are you willing to try something new? Do you want to experience something more profound than current scientific understanding? How much are we willing to get out of our own way?   You can be right, or you can be well.  We can’t always have both.  ~ John Newton from his April Call Series: “The Gift of Pain”  www.healthbeyondbelief.com

When Do You Surrender?

When do you surrender?  We’re not referring to surrendering to external events or people, although they may be involved in our experience.  We could see this as the stage of our life and they are actors within it.  Each experience, however, points to something internal.  In every situation, there’s an opportunity for you to strengthen your resolve. A choice to really go inside and ask “What is coming up inside of me in this situation? What’s the gift for me here?”  

First and foremost we need to handle what’s going on inside of us. This is not an intellectual process. We’re talking of surrender at the most simple, yet profound level.  In martial arts, our true opponent is within.  Once you handle this internal opponent, your external opponents can return to the nothing from which they came.  You may be like a spiritual ninja: You won’t find them and they won’t find you.

Could it be this simple?

So when do you surrender? Really, the question is when do we not surrender? Because in every moment, we have the choice ‘to be’. This is the awareness of being present. When this occurs, we have the ability to see and let go of our part in the equation.  This is a rare event, because most of humanity is coming from the mind, the intellect, or the separate ‘me’.  This small mind-only perspective doesn’t have all the information necessary for resolution of the problem.

In Twelve Step recovery programs, Step One states: “We admitted that our lives had become unmanageable.”  What we are really saying is “I of myself cannot handle this.”  Often it will be that life has become so overwhelming painful and we realize that we can’t do it alone.  In that moment of grace, we have the experience of surrender to our inner truth.  When we surrender the judgment, the story, the separate “I” and even the past, we see what’s left:  ‘Being’ itself and that we are not alone at all in this.

So when you surrender, what is it that you gain?  Well, you stop feeding the problem. You stop reacting to things you might not have control over. When we’re re-acting, we’re acting it out again and again.  There may be different actors, but it’s the same play, the same feeling.  We can surrender inside or we can keep reacting to the circumstance, the impossible person, or whatever that external event is.  We don’t surrender to get what we want. That is not actually surrender.  We’re referring to true surrender.  Feel that.  If the mind doesn’t understand what we’re talking about, that’s perfect because it doesn’t fit there anyway.

Benefits of Surrender

We often don’t want to surrender the little bit of control that we think we have.  However we can start being a part of the solution. We can reclaim the energy that we were expending to keep this adversarial relationship going. In this, we gain clarity; insight and we’re able to see more. We surrender our small point of view and we start to see the big picture.  We also get our true inner strength back as well as our free will.  We’re able to have this infinite well to draw on that gives us the ability to handle whatever needs to be handled.

The Impossible Becomes Possible

Your surrender grants you crystal clarity and the ability to see through what may have seemed impossible.  Where we might have focused on the trees and lost sight of the forest, we’re now able to see through the maya.  An illusion that seemed so real when we held onto the old point of view. A version that included frustration, anger, resentment, guilt, or fear.  When we feel what’s deeper, we go beyond emotional labels and wisdom is revealed.  We tap into that Eternal Intelligence that comes from being on the inside looking out, instead of outside looking to get in.  In that state of grace, you are guided into divine right action in every circumstance.  

This experience may not always be pleasant because the ego or the false “I” is trying to protect what doesn’t feel good.  When we bypass the mind and surrender into that discomfort directly, it can’t keep feeding itself.  We see It was the protection itself that was keeping it alive and real.

When we surrender, we have the support of nature and the intelligence of creation – all that is, was and ever will be.  They say the meek will inherit the earth.  When you surrender, you are the ultimate of meek and the paradox is that you now are the most powerful. ~ John Newton, from his Weekly Call Series

We Are All Seekers

seekers

Are you a seeker? I feel we are all seekers in some form, however we are all in different stages of our spiritual path. Some of us are endlessly seeking; maybe even addicted to it.  On our path, we eventually reach a point where what we’re seeking ‘out there’ isn’t doing it for us. We may even reach a stage of discontent. When we stop everything and find stillness for a moment or a breath, we see what’s really here – what we may have been running from.

There is something profound about seeing what’s unresolved in our life experience. When we take responsibility and clean that up, we get in integrity with our heart. This is often the beginning of our true path as we discover the purpose for being. All that ‘out there’ becomes much more rewarding because it’s reflecting the fullness of truth already inside us.

What seekers have in common

We want to make sure we’re not using the external world as a distraction from our awakening.  It’s easy to get caught up in the cycle of desire and consumption.  There are many hungry ghosts walking the planet who never get full no matter how much they eat.  When we wake up and have that cognition of being the ‘I am that I am’ presence, the work is done. The river is now flowing in the direction it was designed to flow. As you begin releasing, clearing, and moving forward with integrity – you’ve started an object in motion and that momentum is a powerful force. 

Notice what you feel inside.  This connects you with what’s real and is the experience of being one with all of creation; all that’s appearing in consciousness. It’s a trusted friend with open arms that is always available.  The experience of this endless field of presence is without boundaries so there’s no more hitting bottom. If we believe ‘all is lost’, this is only a mental constraint or a construct of the ego. When we’re okay with the experience of being, no matter what arises as sensation, you are free from suffering and are not a seeker any longer. ~John Newton from his Monday Night Call Series “The Deception of a Spiritual Path” #AncestralClearing #Consciousness #ComplementaryHealing http://www.johnnewton.com
