Waking up to Spiritual Consciousness

Waking up to Spiritual Consciousness

Waking up to Spiritual Consciousness

What do we witness,when we look externally,outwardly,away from ourselves?We see the world in chaos which includes the pain and suffering of those we are intimate with,close to,within our family,friends and social circles.Are we being aware of it or do we take it for granted that there is nothing we can do!
Honestly,are we being affected adversely,influenced negatively and drowning quietly,as though struggling against the strong current of confusion,self-doubt,self-limitations,hatred, resentments,anger,fear and depression.

Somehow, we may feel that by engaging and getting caught up with the distractions of the world and standing by helplessly/hopelessly seeing the pain of others it gives us a sense of temporary relief from witnessing our own inner pain.Without us touching and exposing our inner pain……how do we find resolutions for true healing,peaceful states and living in a conducive loving environment?If we first don’t find healing and peace within ourselves,how do we bring,teach,speak and share peace and compassion to and for others?How will the world find healing and peace?We can start with ourselves first,to look honestly within and then we bring that healing out into the world as however little or much.

How beautiful and magnificent it is when a soul wakes up from
deep slumber to listen to the call of its own voice of Truth.Not only does it wake up,it wakes up to wake up the ‘unconsciousness’ of others!

Our True Self

Our True Self

Our True Nature is Love, pure consciousness,goodness, kindness,benevolence and benediction…………but why have we forgotten our True Self?
As long as we live fearfully and convinced by what the illusory,noisy and enticing world indoctrinates unto us, we bypass the beauty within us that is nudging incessantly to awaken us to look within and find the treasures we are to discover and display and share!How can we listen to the call of our own Self?We start the practice of being aware of our own Presence,we watch ourselves,we learn to be present to wanting quiet time to see our preciousness in life,the potential goodness and peacefulness we can offer.Do we hanker and opt to be influenced by the crowd or could we choose to have courageous wisdom to stand up alone and listen to the voice beckoning from Within?Are we to waste our lives in fleeting reveries?

From the roots of evil….there will spring shoots of goodness
Just as surely as there is the darkness of night…it will dawn into the brightness of day
From the terrorism of fear…..there will come forth the Innate protection of strength and courage from within
From the abyss of hatred….there will be stairs leading up to compassion
In the end nothing remains permanent,
all will dissolve in the ocean of Love!

A Heart’s Prayer

A Heart’s Prayer

To all of us with no separation of culture, religion,
race, or gender; and to all of us who are rich or poor,
happy or sad, educated or uneducated, sick or healthy,
I am one with all and all are one with me.
Within we are the same.


We have a heart with the full capacity to
love, to be of support, and to pray for each other.

I pray that we take time to be quiet and listen
to ourselves and our needs spiritually, emotionally,
physically, and mentally.

I pray we be not afraid to ask for what we need for
the good of our spirit and that our hearts may be enriched
with strength, not to be harmed and not to harm.

I pray that we may not feel too vulnerable or weak
to say “I am sorry” or ask forgiveness or forgive with
compassionate understanding.

I pray we strive to find peace and healing in the face
of suffering and pain.

I pray we see the beauty within us and use that
beauty to beautify this world with activities and
creativities of love and peace.

I pray we not look at humility as weakness or
as being losers but instead as having the power and
strength to take the first step to initiate spiritual change.

Over the last few weeks and months,what have we truly witnessed in our lives?Did we see pain and suffering,aggression,hatred and anger,frustrations,anxieties, worries,sickness and perhaps deaths of others,friends,relatives,strangers,maybe people we don’ like?What importance have we been giving so much adulation,attention,focus upon? The world was and is still drawing our energies and human goodness focusing greatly on the political scene and pandemic.Do we not feel tired and drained of suffering itself? What do we truly want or how can we truly find peace in exchange for all the confusion and chaos we are being disturbed with?Can we not for once retreat/relate into and draw within ourselves, into our own beautiful inner being,walk into our spiritual realm and bring out one innate wondrous attribute to share with others or witness in ourselves?Why are we afraid to raise,wake up and live out that inherent beauteous God,Christ, Krishna, Atman, Buddha,Brahman,Universal Consciousness from within ourselves to promote healing, peace and compassion.Why is it that we are not afraid to speak and behave unkindly, crudely, critically,fearfully,judgmentally and ignorantly

How do we have a glimpse into our True Self?

How do we have a glimpse into our True Self?

By watching Ourselves!

We can be creators of loving-kindness,benevolence,respect,truth,selflessness and understanding.
We can choose to destroy selfishness,unkindness,resentments,anger,disrespect and greed.
We can restore harmony into our lives and the lives of others

All we need is the tool of practicing Self-Awareness!
It is so easy,wherever we are, whomever we are with,however we are, in whatever we are doing,right here and now…..we can practice watching ourselves,being mindful and aware.

One small random act of kindness can help encourage and disseminate the uplifting of Human Consciousness which brings spiritual healing and courage.Fear on the other hand limits and traps us in a realm of meaninglessness.

Celeste’s quotes

“There is a kaleidoscope of beauty we can meet within us when we truly sit with ourselves…….whatever our external circumstance is,we have this precious gems within waiting to be utilized.Instead of discounting all the beauty we are, we can start opening up to it and make it a reality,activate it in various ways,be creative when we have a glimpse of it.That’s how we can start breaking the barriers down from our hearts that blocks us from truly living fearlessly and kindly and nobly.”— Celeste Hoeden

Goodreads Quotes

Meaningful time Alone

Meaningful time Alone

Being alone,the significance of taking time to quiet ourselves,time to reflect,renew and make changes…to not be afraid of witnessing our inner selves.We can start this moment by doing however little where we are……we can strive to make time in the later part of the night when all are asleep or getting up early on in the morning or any ‘down/break’ time during the day to sit and reflect/breathe in and out/learn to meditate/pray/say mantras,visualize (all in the knowing to end unnecessary sufferings and finding peace of mind) a few minutes, no need to be hard on ourselves….always flexible and easy to simply be.By starting out this way, we can learn to be aware and find some comfort to retreat to in difficult moments.Whatever we may be doing,we can practice the awareness of bringing gentleness and kindness towards ourselves and to others…..remembering to always be flexible with ourselves is a factor so we wont ‘break’when things don’t go as we expect or that we don’t expect too much of ourselves and others…………
