How to Practice Radical Spirituality

Spirituality“There are thousands of metaphysical, and guru-led organizations in this world, and they agree upon very little but karma and reincarnation. Radical Spirituality accepts these concepts and the human potential logic handed down from Zen to modern-day psychotherapists. You don’t need much else to guide you down a powerful path. The rest is smoke and mirrors and complicates your quest.”

“THE FOLLOWING 69 REMINDERS SUMMERIZE THE PATH.”

“1. Your earthly purpose is to integrate your fear- based emotions. Doing so creates an “absence,” leaving only your God-self to interact with the world. In your quest to attain the absence, you will sometimes integrate a fear, become fearful again, then integrate the fear again. Don’t be discouraged, because one step at a time, you can build a self-actualized foundation that will lead you to your goal.

2. Everything you think, say and do creates karma. And that includes the motive, intent, and desire behind everything you think say and do.

3. Karma is the basis of reality, which means you are totally responsible for everything that has ever happened to you.

4. It is your resistance to “what is” (unalterable reality)that causes your suffering.

5. Truth isn’t something to be found, it’s something you create.

6. Practice meditation, which is training the mind to stay steady on an object without wavering, and cultivating insight to see more clearly the process of things and the nature of dharma.

7. When you don’t allow life to fully express itself, you are repressing who you are, and there will be a price to pay.

8. Be patient, compassionate and generous. Accept your kindness as self-serving and do it anyway.

9. Give up your expectations of others. If they come through, great. If they don’t come through, that’s okay too.

10. Avoid gurus and religions. They’re bad for your mental health, and they want your money.

11. Blame is self-pity and incompatible with the acceptance of karma and reincarnation.

12. Incorporate challenge into every aspect of your life to guarantee aliveness. If you don’t make your life interesting, your mind will do it for you.

13. Beliefs are not reality, but if you want to change your reality, you have to change your beliefs.

14. Don’t take things personally. Whoever is giving you grief would be giving grief to anyone who represented to them what you represent.

15. What society calls right and wrong, and moral and immoral is not necessarily so.

16. The point of power is now.

17. Practice being “in the moment.”

18. You will always live up to your self-image.

19. You cannot become what you resent.

20. Where your attention goes, your energy flows.

21. Wisdom erases karma.

22. When you show mercy, grace and love, you will receive the same in return.

23. You always have free will to choose how you will respond to any situation.

24. When you are upset about the way it is and do nothing to change the situation, you are choosing to allow it to continue.

25. You don’t have to be in control to survive.

26. What you leave incomplete, you’re doomed to repeat.

27. Karma means you don’t get away with anything.

28. Within you is everything required to make your life happy and fulfilling.

29. Practice unconditional acceptance of others, by refraining from judgment, blame and expectations.

30. Other people are a mirror for you, because the traits you respond to in others, you recognize in yourself.

31. Everything manifest begins with an idea. Ideas and experiences create beliefs which, in turn, create reality.

32. Awareness is measured by how much you let yourself know of your own truth.

33. Everything you refuse to forgive in yourself and others, remains with you as karmic baggage.

34. What other people do, does not affect you. What you think about what they do, affects you.

35. We are all mirrors of our own thoughts. So unhappiness and failure are self-inflicted, while happiness and success are self-bestowed.

36. Everytime you get upset with someone else, it is because you have expectations of approval or control (your expectations are in conflict with what is.)

37. If you want to understand something or someone, you must observe without criticizing.

38. What you resist, you draw to you.

39. Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve, as long as your desires are realistic and do not conflict with the free will of others.

40. What you deny to others will be denied to you.

41. Love others as you would be loved, treasuring their uniqueness while accepting them as they are.

42. The greatest gift you can give another person is to be all of who you are.

43. In your heart you know the right thing to do at each moment in time.

44. You can detach from the chaos in your life by refusing to choose to control the outcome.

45. Your viewpoint determines how you react to life. You’re always free to choose a different viewpoint.

46. You need difficult people in your life to provide opportunities to test your resistance to what is.

47. What your mind has created, your mind can change.

48. The primary reason people aren’t as happy or fulfilled as they desire to be is that they do not know exactly what they want.

49. Simplicity is one of the key secrets of well-being.

50. Refuse to make a choice based upon the expectations of others. Instead, act in ways consistent with your purpose.

51. Imagination is more powerful than willpower. Change begins with imagination.

52. Practice being centered-physically relaxed, emotionally calm, mentally focused and spiritually aware.

53. Practice persistence. Increasing self-discipline is a matter of building the strength not to give up.

54. Very little in life is really important, so separate what is from what isn’t…and respond to what is.

55. What you resist you become, if not in this life, in the next (unless you learn to let go of your resistance).

56. In life you experience what you are deeply convinced is so.

57. Value being who you are more than being accepted.

58. You are body/mind/spirit, not body and mind and spirit. What your mind doesn’t handle, your body will try to resolve, draining spiritual energy in the process.

59. Suffering is also the source of your awakening.

60. When you’re upset or life isn’t working, become an “observer” by mentally filtering the situation through the observer’s detachment.

61. You will never succeed beyond the size of your vision. So think big.

62. The Universe will support your clearest desires.

63. Pursue your desires with no indecisiveness whatsoever. This assures you of getting what you want.

64. You will achieve self-actualization momentarily, lose it, and then go after it again. Eventually it sinks in.

65. Never use fear as a justification for avoiding life.

66. Never do things you will have to karmically punish yourself for.

67. Never do anything that causes you to lose self-esteem.

68. Forgive others, knowing that forgiveness is a selfish act you do for yourself to elevate karma and improve the quality of your life.

69. Wake up!”

Testimonials

I was invited by Annie to this place of sharing the heart that beats within us all. I do not speak for all as all speaks when we are ready to listen. A feeling of calm is what I can share, and from there we can all make choices creating from the creation of loving expansion we are. We are the shared breath that takes all forms of light. I release fear and doubt everyday and the return has gave me confindence in myself. If I can help in anyway. I am here. I work best when I am calm in my mind body and spirit and each let me know when they need some attention. I am perfectly imperfect asking and learning from each one of you and all that I see as the physical truth. It is much deeper and lighter than the tension we all put on ourselves to be perfect. Let perfect a direction for the afterlife. Lets live now and create good and happiness with in every physical breath. I share my breath with you and I have no fear you will use it wrong. You are perfectly imperfect. What a blessing to have help such as this wonderful site that has appeared from the physical hands of love. Lets turn up the lights so we all can see the party. Namaste Brothers and Sisters. A big hug from my physical body when we come together is my gift to you all when it is time. No rush, I dont want to miss anything important that comes in this physical world I have only remembered recently. It grows daily, and the only thing I think is true is it always will. My Will is my way, I love you all. Stay imperfectly perfectly You. Nathan ( your soul brother )

Michaelle Douglas’ workshop - Games People Play - provides participants with invaluable tools and insights as to the negative dynamics people often play out in their lives in all types of relationships. Through this multifaceted and intelligently structured workshop, Michaelle helps participants understand and identify the roles people tend to take on in their various relationships, and how these archetypes are very often the root of much self sabotage, dissatisfaction, and failure. She is a gifted “natural intuitive”, and has an excellent understanding of the psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the human psyche. The marriage of her intuition and knowledge make her an excellent teacher and life coach, who is both compassionate and inspiring. The tools and exercises she uses to identify and resolve issues that hold us back, are not only incredibly effective and enlightening, but can also become an invaluable addition to our mind-set to be used when faced with new challenges. It has been such a pleasure for me to learn from Michaelle, and I am truly grateful to have been able to benefit from the many insights and exercises she has so generously shared with me, all of which have only served to help transform my perception of things and the manner in which to tackle the challenges that continue to arise. I cannot recommend her enough, both as a workshop facilitator and life coach.
