A new year is upon us - and you may ask what it will look like. I can tell you now that it can only bring what has been caused so far.
For the world it will bring what has been caused on a collective level.
For you the new year will bring what you have caused, through your being, because you are the cause or the creator of your reality, and you have the power to change anything, at anytime.
So when you’re not sure what the new year will bring you, and you want a different life, then set the cause now for a different life - because your being today is going to be your reality tomorrow.
If you want that the world is smiling, your must smile first. Your experienced reality is the exact mirror of your being.
But if you live your life like the majority then you will experience life like the majority.
If you recognise the nature of your true being, which is unlimited, ever-present awareness, crystallising as temporary expression of pure potential, you will experience life as an expression of awakened awareness.
Problems, lack and suffering will turn into faint memories of a time when you used to live as an illusory self. And this alone will determine what the new year will bring.
All this is part of a drastically changing world. In 2020 the world will change so radically so that we won’t be able to recognise it.
Never in human history has there been so many radical changes, in almost all areas of life, and all of us will be affected. Those who are not prepared will be affected the most.
We all need to learn to awaken to our true nature, in order to be the cause for a happy, healthy and prosperous life.
We need to learn to ask meaningful questions instead of merely following corrupt ideas and ideals.
We need to discover and activate our individual purpose, elevate our relationships and liberate our prosperity.
We need to awaken to our true reality, because it will determine the nature of our experiences.
We need to learn that we are unlimited, ever-present awareness, expressing itself as a very individual field of vibration, individual means undivided.
We can learn to optimise our vibrational field, through conscious being and conscious living, through empathy, kindness and mindfulness.
In the new year, where will be the focus of your attention, on your outer world or your inner world?
We can’t afford anymore to exclusively focus our attention on the outer world, others and circumstances.
Remember, our present state of being is shaping our experiences tomorrow.
We can’t afford anymore to identify with our limited ego selves, only a limited ego self can suffer. Awakened awareness cannot suffer.
Learn to trust your immediate experiences, your instincts and your intuition and learn to use your thinking mind as valuable tool.
Withdraw your trust in your ego self, which never truly existed in the first place.
You will find that suddenly everything becomes easy and you will live life as it is intended.
This all will happen in the new year, everything will change, also your relationships. The law of cause and effect will become more obvious in the way you relate to your loved ones.
Recognise that you can only love another as you can love yourself.
As awakened awareness you will experience awakened relationships. The other may make you feel in love, but you must love first. Learn to address awakened awareness in the other, so that awakened awareness can respond. This way communication becomes easy.
In love’s presence all problems disappear.
Suffering, the feeling of lack and separation are the expression of a sick mind, and a sick mind can be healed.
Learn to connect to the presence of awareness and be guided to right acting and relating. In the new year, make it a priority to BE, more and more, the presence of awareness.
Do you want to make your illusory ego self happy, or connect to the happiness that is your true self? Only one is really possible.
You ARE the living CAUSE of your true BEING!
Recognising this will present you with an extraordinary life. Do anything and everything so completely aware and be the cause for a completely NEW BEING in the new year, and it can begin NOW, this very moment.
In the new year, be a shining example for awakened awareness and show others how to live a mindful, happy and healthy life. This will change the world.
Then there is one more thing to do, to assist others to awake to awareness, when they are ready.
Wishing you a happy new year 2020.
The world, all things, time, space, everyone we know, in this present moment all this is experience to us.
There is no world, there is only ever experience. No one has ever seen a world that exists apart from experience. We could call all experience sense perceptions, thoughts and images. Through the thinking mind these sense perceptions are then given names and take on an apparent solid form.
Notice that what you experience, your sensations, thoughts and images, are changing every moment and cannot truly be described.
As soon as you spoke, your actual experience would be already different. You think you can describe your experience and in this idea there is a sense of I. In trying to describe your sensations, this activity appears to give the non-existent I a sense of control. What you are is open space which is aware of experience. This awareness is always present.
Whilst being this awareness, can you describe awareness?
We have the capacity to objectify experience and it seems like there is an observer and something that is being observed. From this we can see that the sense of I is an activity. As soon as the activity ceases, like in deep sleep, there is no sense of I.
But you also know that during deep sleep, being remains.
When you truly experience the totality of the present moment, there is no possibility to objectify, hence no sense of I. Notice what happens if you would like to have a different experience from the experience you are having. Is it possible at all?
If the thought that it is possible to have a different experience to what you are having right now, is entertained, then it looks as if I can do something about it and I can change what is happening right now, I am in control.
As soon as you do not want the experience you are having, the not wanting it is also an experience and adds another layer on top of the entirety of experience.
This inevitably leads to a sense of contraction. In most cases we are never consciously aware of this contraction, but somehow we feel that it might protect us. But we also feel a resistance to this contraction, which then locks it even further in.
We can be absolutely certain about experience and say that it is always changing. When we don’t want the experience we are having, we are trying to fix it, to objectify it, because we can’t get rid of something that is always changing. So in order to get rid of an experience or change it, we have to make it into something that seems to be fixed.
This the human drama; actively resisting and not wanting the present experience and needing to change what is.
Not wanting the experience we are having, feels uncomfortable, the body registers this and tries to adapt. The mind tries to solve the seeming problems by projecting the problem and the imagined solution onto a screen we call the world. The mind now believes that by projecting it, it has gotten rid of it.
When we don’t want the experience we are having through this sense of resisting, all that happens is that our experience gets more intense, we feel even worse.
Now that it is worse we don’t want that either, so we resist again, which makes it worse again and now that it is worse again we don’t want that either, so we resist, a seemingly endless circle.
In a matter of moments we feel out of control, yet the experience we don’t want in the first place is still there and we feel utterly overwhelmed. Sadly most people live their entire lives this way.
There is a constant underlying feeling of stress and struggle just to survive.
Everything we never want to experience again and everything we think we want to experience, in other words our shadows and desires, we could call the subconscious mind. All of this represents the resistance to our present moment experience and our mistaken belief that it will bring us peace and happiness.
Simply become aware of resisting the experience you are having.
Pay attention to this moment, to simply being. Welcome all experiences. You could call this unconditional love or non-judgement. It is never the experience we are having that troubles us, it is whether or not there is an automatic habit of trying to not have the experience we are already having that troubles us.
May these impulses reach you and awaken you. I am here to support you!

A LITTLE EXERCISE
We often hear about a move from head to heart, and it can be difficult to comprehend what this is really experientially referring to.
This shift is often spoken about in relation to freedom, in relation to knowing oneself more fully, more truly, so it's quite an important aspect of self inquiry.
Here is an exercise to demonstrate what the shift is referring to quickly and simply, so let's give it a go.
For the sake of the exercise you'll need to drop into one of your feeling experiences - let's play with this one for demonstration purposes ...
"I'm really quite upset" (replace it with one that is more applicable to you).
Pick whichever experience comes most easily in this moment and really embody it, repeat it a few times, loud and clear in your mind and really feel it.
“I'm really quite upset!”
Close your eyes and really feel what this experience feels like, it shouldn't be hard, it's part of your experience after all.
Next, instead of directing your attention ‘outwards’ towards the story of what happened or the actual feeling sensation, direct your attention ‘inwards’ towards the one who is experiencing the feeling of being upset.
THEN EXPLORE THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS
Until you find out - just stay with feeling upset!
Finally focus on the one question ... where or who is the one who is upset ... instead of giving your attention to the story or the feeling/sensation!
Then clearly see the non-existence of the ‘self’ that is feeling upset!
Now, here's the moment of shift, don't think about the answers to the questions, maybe you just drop into Being!
I hope you found a moment of resting in Being. A drop from the head to the heart.
