Orient Your Consciousness

Topics: ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • It is unwise to sail to sea without a navigation system. Likewise, navigating the intricacies and challenges of life also needs special guidance. For your soul wisdom grows from your consecration.

    My consecration is to release any thought that closes my heart even in the slightest and to always begin my life right where I am. It is to refuse to allow fear or suffering, even physical pain, to make me self-involved.

    Consecration is the pole star by which you invent yourself as a spiritually oriented conscious person. But how do you know or discover your consecration? Ask yourself: What is it that brings tears of recognition: tears of joy, compassion, forgiveness, or inspiration?

    Is it hearing Martin Luther King’s dream of brotherhood? Is it witnessing a person rise above their circumstances and demonstrate courage, wisdom, and love? Or is it seeing someone selflessly risk their lives to assist another? Do you cry in romantic films when love eventually triumphs?

    Who do you deeply admire? Is it a technology pioneer like Steve Jobs? Is it Nelson Mandela who after 27 years of imprisonment by a brutal government led a new government in a policy of reconciliation instead of retribution?

    The people who you most want to emulate, the things that move your heart, this is your soul telling you what is sacred to you. When you choose to embody these qualities to the best of your ability, you have found your consecration. Now you have your pole star to guide you through the darkness, to lead you to become someone who perhaps you never imagined you could be.

    But to embody your consecration, you need consciousness practices, particularly practices that teach you how to live consistently in the Now. For example, stop polluting your body with angry, judgmental thoughts. Don’t believe any image or belief about your past that hurts you in the present. Learn to let go of any future imagining that poisons you with sensations of fearfulness or deludes you with false hope.

    There is still hope, but the hope is in the quality of your attention and presence. Take this breath. Open your senses. Whatever life brings, let every perception be vivid and your mind spacious. Let your whole body be a living “Yes” to whatever is happening right now. Now you are flowing with life like a river flows. This is true abundance.

    True security and real happiness never come from outside. Consecrate yourself to practices that free you from mind-made suffering and begin to invent yourself as the human being you want to be. This is the greatest of all of life’s opportunities: to invent yourself. Decide that you will not let your heart stay closed when you feel abandoned or afraid. Decide to find a way to celebrate whatever life brings.

    Does this sound like aiming for sainthood? Why not? Saints were not born; they invented themselves. They chose their beliefs. They chose their behaviors. This is the greatest form of freedom, the greatest aspect of free will. Who do you want to invent yourself to be?

    Richard Moss, the Maestro of “DEEP WORK,” has given his life over teaching people how to delve deeply into their inner core so they can achieve a life of “Radical Aliveness,” Unconditional Love, and Real Inner Peace. For 37 years, this globally renowned physician-turned-master healer, international bestselling Hay House author, and workshop leader has been guiding people on profound journeys of self-inquiry and self-discovery that have transformed their relationship with themselves, with their loved ones and with the world. Moss’ work is centered in helping people achieve present moment awareness—and to clear away the beliefs, habits and thinking patterns that prevent them from living in a hyper-alive, joyful and loving state of being nearly all of the time. In Moss’ bestselling books Inside-Out Healing and The Mandala of Being, he outlines his methodology for achieving this mastery. But while people can do this work on their own, it is often in the workshops, lovingly coached by Moss, that many achieve their most profound transformations. People seek out Moss for many reasons: resolving or coping with a health crisis; feeling stuck in old patterns; experiencing an emotional malaise; yearning to deepen their life path; seeking to reignite, improve or save a relationship, and desiring to catalyze new creative energy to achieve or accomplish a desired goal. And what they experience in either the 10-day Radical Aliveness Retreats, the 3 or 4-day Deep Work Workshops or the Couples Deep Work Intensive Programs, is nothing short of seeing the world through new eyes—the eyes of their true selves. And experiencing it with the full embodiment of their feeling sense—and especially their heart. Interested in changing YOUR life?
