Life is full of ups and downs. The world around us is always changing. As the world spins around us, we need to find our center deep inside. Our own Inner Consciousness is the hub of the wheel of change. When we find that silent center inside our self, the ups and downs of this world no longer shake us. We have a clear and steady vision of what is happening and can make better choices.
Sometimes our mind and our emotions get caught up in the challenges around us. When you are feeling pulled by things around you, take a break and get centered. Close your eyes and completely let go of the challenge. Relax down inside and find the Inner Silence. Once you feel centered in the Inner Silence, open your eyes and look at the challenge with a new perspective. Don’t push yourself. Don’t try to figure it out. Just gently look at the challenge and wait for an insight to come up from inside of you. Any insight that comes from inside will be the best approach to solving the challenge. Any thinking or analyzing will create distraction from your receiving the insight that you need. Relax and let it happen naturally.
Your Inner Consciousness is already tuned in to what you need. The Inner Consciousness knows what your mind cannot understand or see. Trust it. It might take some practice before you can master this ability to gain insight, but the time it takes to learn it is worth it. Good luck!
Doubts are Human, the Flow of the Heart is Divine
A message from Bob Fickes

Doubts are like the breaks on a car. They bring everything to a screeching halt. Thinking too much and controlling too much stops our Life Force. Stop thinking and tune in. Let your heart move joyfully without controlling it with your mind. Only your heart can feel what it means to be alive. Your feelings tell you that you are alive. The mind has no feelings. It is cold and lifeless like a computer. The mind creates right and wrong and suffers under the illusion it has created. There is no right or wrong. There is only the flow of Life Force. Life Force opens the heart and we experience Love and Happiness. The mind says No, and Love and Happiness disappear.
Do you know that every time you say No, you are stopping the flow of life? There is no right way to do something. The only way that is effective is when our heart moves with energy and enthusiasm. Your mind wants to fit in with the people around you. The heart naturally moves without thinking and naturally flows with the force of the universe. This universe was not created by human logic. It just became alive by itself and for itself.
Our human mind and our ego want to control everything and make it logical. This can only result in pain. No human mind can stop the flow of Nature. If we do manage to stop the flow of Nature, something suffers and something dies. Let go and trust that the universe can see what you cannot see. Trust your heart to be motivated by Nature not by human rules and conditions.
This is the dawn of the Age of the Heart. Enlightenment uses mind but does not rely on its logic. The universe has no mind to control it. Even God knows that there is no logic in the flow of the universe. Logic is a straight line. The universe moves in spirals of joy. Lose your mind in the whirlpool of life and you will find Infinite Joy. Lose your mind in the flow of your heart and you will discover Cosmic Love.
