An inspiring new book born from a profound spiritual awakening. Topics covered: a personal account of the author’s enlightenment, the connection between science and mysticism, the limits of modern psychology and philosophy, the true goal and unity of all religions, what enlightenment is and how to attain it, and the spiritual destiny of humanity.

About the Author

In 1996, at the age of 22, Stephen D’Amico experienced a profound spiritual transformation. Following this awakening, he spent several years integrating and deepening his understanding of this transformation. Then, in 2000, he began writing this book as a way to help enlighten the world.

Stephen is not aligned with any particular religion or spiritual tradition, but his teaching grows out of the supreme truths found at the heart of them all. At the core of this teaching lies the understanding that the enlightened transformation has the power to transform this world into a heavenly paradise, and that the greatest advancement each of us can make towards this divine destiny is to become one in whom the consciousness of God is fully awakened.

CANADA TALKS RADIO INTERVIEW

Host Richard Garner from Canada Talks radio show What in the World?! interviews Spiritual Teacher Stephen D’Amico, author of the new autobiographical book, The Incredible State of Absolute Nothingness.


In our usual state of consciousness we stay submerged in the multitude of forms and shapes. In this state of consciousness we play the scenario of the film of our life. That is how the Miracle of Consciousness has sunk into oblivion, and it is now covered with the grey veil of ordinariness.

Based on the book
The Miracle of Consciousness

ELEVEN MEN embarked upon a journey in 1894 with one objective:
…to find the great spiritual teachers of the Far East and witness their uncommon abilities.

Since these Masters were scattered over a wide territory that covered a large portion of India, Tibet, China, and Persia, they knew it could take years of searching many secluded villages and hidden mountain communes. Planning each step of the journey became a challenge knowing that countless miles of rugged terrain separated the remote and isolate locations that were imperative to the exploration. Even though they could plot their route on a map and see where they were headed, the destination deep within the souls of eleven scientifically trained men remained uncertain. Baird T. Spalding and the others were practical in nature and the thought of spiritual masters performing miracles seemed impossible. Despite these suspect thoughts, something compelled them to move onward. So they did.

Baird T. Spalding, whose name became legend in metaphysical circles during the first half of the 20th century, played an important part in introducing to the Western world knowledge of the Masters, who are assisting and guiding the destiny of mankind. Born in England, at age four he went to India. At age seventeen he finished the University and went to California where he stayed two years. He then traveled to Heidelberg, Germany and studied for eight years and then returned to California for post-graduate work in Archaeology at Berkeley and Stanford.
`After years of working with publisher Douglas DeVorss to write and promote the Life & Teaching series, Spalding died in 1953 in Arizona.


Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East – Baird T. Spalding | Part 1/3 – Prj new

How holographic patterns of information underlie our physical reality

• Includes myriad evidence from a wide range of cutting-edge scientific discoveries showing our Universe is an interconnected hologram of information
• Explains how consciousness is a major component of the cosmic hologram of information, making us both manifestations and co-creators of our reality
• Reconciles Quantum Mechanics and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity by showing that energy-matter and space-time are complementary expressions of information
Our understanding of the Universe is about to transform at all levels, from the tiniest Planck scale to the vast reaches of space. Recent scientific discoveries show that the information that upholds all of our modern technologies is exactly the same as the universal in-formation that underpins, pervades, and is all we call physical reality.
Exploring how information is more fundamental than energy, matter, space, or time, Jude Currivan, Ph.D., examines the latest research across many fields of study and many scales of existence to show how our Universe is in-formed and holographically manifested. She explains how the fractal in-formational patterns that guide behavior at the atomic level also guide the structure of galactic clusters in space. She demonstrates how the in-formational relationships that underlie earthquakes are the same as those that play out during human conflicts. She shows how cities grow in the same in-formational ways that galaxies evolve and how the dynamic in-formational forms that pervade ecosystems are identical to the informational structures of the Internet and our social behaviors. Demonstrating how information is physically real, the author explores how consciousness connects us to the many interconnected layers of universal in-formation, making us both manifestations and co-creators of the cosmic hologram of reality. She explains how Quantum Mechanics and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity can at last be reconciled if we consider energy-matter and space-time as complementary expressions of information, and she explores how the cosmic hologram underlies the true origin of species and our own evolution.
Concurring too with ancient spiritual wisdom, the author offers solid evidence that consciousness is not something we “have” but the fundamental nature of what we and the entire Universe are. With this understanding, we can each transform our own lives and help co-create and in-form the world around us.

Dr Jude Currivan is a cosmologist, planetary healer, futurist, author and previously one of the most senior business women in the UK. Having grown up as the daughter of a coal miner in the north of England, she has since journeyed to nearly seventy countries around the world and for the last nearly twenty years has lived in the sacred landscape of Avebury. She has experienced multidimensional realities since early childhood and worked with the wisdom keepers both incarnate and discarnate of many traditions.

Jude integrates leading edge science, research into consciousness and universal wisdom teachings into a wholistic wholeworld-view. This underpins her work aimed at enabling transformational and emergent resolutions to our collective planetary issues, raising awareness and empowering fundamental change and sustainable solutions to global problems.

She holds a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Reading in the UK researching ancient cosmologies and a Masters Degree in Physics from Oxford University specialising in cosmology and quantum physics. She is the author of five non-fiction books currently available in 15 languages and 25 countries including CosMos – a co-creator’s guide to the whole-world co-authored with Dr Ervin Laszlo. Her first fictionalised e-book Legacy is recently available at amazon.

Her international corporate career culminated in her being the Group Finance Director of two major international businesses. She has extensive experience and knowledge of world events, international politics and global economic and financial systems and has spoken on transformational reforms in the UK, US, Europe, Japan and South Korea.

For the last seventeen years she has also travelled around the world in service to planetary and collective healing, some of which is described in her books The 8th Chakra, The 13th Step and most recently HOPE – Healing Our People & Earth.

Dr Jude Currivan – ‘Cosmos’ – Interview by Iain McNay

When we make peace our primary concern, explains Eckhart, we begin to free ourselves from the “problematic world” and open to higher consciousness.

Author of ‘Shift Into Freedom. ’ Loch was a keen sports player when young. After one ice hockey game when he played in goal and made several amazing saves someone asked him how he did it. He explained, ‘time slows down, I feel open and connected, I get really quiet inside and it seems it is strangely quiet on the outside too.’
Someone gave him the ‘Zen and the Art of Archery’ book and he realised that others had had this experience too. At times he could feel exactly what was going on but wasn’t thinking.
He then started to investigate meditation.

And then one night when walking home from college and feeling an overwhelming grief as a result of some recent losses his thoughts quietened, his heart broke open and the weight of despair lifted. He looked up at the stars and noticed that his usual sense of self had gone, yet he felt fully embodied and alive. A new process had begun. Experience showed him that consciousness can shift intelligently but he didn’t know yet how to shift it intentionally.
He went to Sri Lanka where he did long retreats and then India where he saw the Dalia Lama who recommended he study with Tulka Rinpoche where he learnt Awake Awareness. Over the next few years he embodied this teaching.
He worked for many years with people in homeless shelters in NY and sees his life as a continual series of shifts.
There is no end to the mystery of Life – most of it is beyond human understanding’

 Did you know there is a direct correlation between spiritual awakening and inner power?

When I was a kid, people were often screaming at each other, spouses publicly arguing, parents scolding their children and kids bullying kids. As I grew up and moved away from the scolding, arguing and bullying, I became aware of personally reaching a higher state of consciousness where people respected each other and communicated in ways that were honoring of one another.

It makes sense that as we evolve and wake up, we become more and more honoring to the world outside of us, but there is really something very simple yet profound that happens under the surface, and when we understand it and apply it to our awakening, we can evolve much quicker.

When we are spiritually asleep, at lower states of consciousness, we unconsciously give our inner power away, and as we awaken and move into higher states of consciousness, we begin to own our power. Knowing this makes it possible to accelerate awakening, simply by owning your power and not giving it away.

HOW DO YOU GIVE YOUR POWER AWAY?
In lower states of consciousness, you give your power away every time you give your energy away, by negatively reacting to someone or something; every time you blame the outside world for anything, you give your power away. This also means that every time you argue, scold or criticize, you give your power away.

As you awaken and reach higher states of consciousness, you begin to own your power. This means that truly powerful people are conscious and awake.

Being spiritually conscious means that you know that you are responsible for everything that you experience in your reality. You are never a victim to any person or situation because you are co-creating every experience that you have. This is the core quality to the world’s most successful people and how people go from rags to riches and create amazing realities.

Yelling at someone or accusing anyone of anything is like having a night time dream and blaming another person in your dream for hurting you. In your dream, there is no other person – it is just you pretending to be someone else. Just as it is silly to blame someone in our dreams for hurting us, it is just as silly to blame someone in our lives for hurting us.

In lower states of consciousness, it appears that things are happening to us and taking our power away. We react in order to reclaim this power. Emotions like anger or frustration are unconscious attempts at reclaiming your power.

However, it never works because as soon as we believe that someone or something has power over us, we give our power to that person or situation – we do the very thing that we are unconsciously trying to prevent. In believing that the outside world has power over you, you give your power to the outside world. Instead of getting your power back, this is really where you are giving it away. Anger, frustration, jealousy, or any reactive emotion, all give your power away. You give your power away through any emotion that is the result of believing that someone has taken something from you or has something you need.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO OWN YOUR POWER?
As we wake up and evolve spirituality into higher consciousness, we remember that we are projecting our reality and nothing is happening outside of us.

When you completely own your power, you take responsibility for everything in your experience; this includes everything that directly happens in your life, as well as everything that you are even conscious of in the world. If you are aware of something, even if it is just what you see on TV, it is happening in your consciousness and therefore it is a reflection of you. Nothing is happening outside of you. This means that there is no blaming others for doing or not doing things – without blaming the world, anger, frustration and a host of other low vibration emotions are no longer provoked.

Let’s be really clear here, when you take responsibility, from a higher state of consciousness, it can only be without self-judgment, self-blame or self-criticism.

When you judge yourself for dis-harmony in your life, or in the world, you are vibrating at a lower state of consciousness, and as a result, you actually create more disharmony. Taking responsibility from a higher state of consciousness is empowering and freeing. Instead of self-blame, you simply find the corresponding “inner cause” of outer-trouble, and you shift it. From a higher state of consciousness, you find the dis-harmony in yourself and you harmonize it. That is the point.

The highest level of conscious corresponds to owning our power – and not giving it away in exchange for anything.

There will come a point when it will be really easy to be present and conscious in our lives, without ever reacting, but it is a process to get there.

At lower levels of consciousness – we feel better after we react. As we become more conscious – it no longer feels good to react. As we continue to awaken, it feels quite awful, and even out of integrity to react. This is our inner guidance system leading us to awakening.

As we awaken, and become more and more conscious, we might still have internal reactions to people and events but we quiet our negative expression and we do not react outwardly.

Finally, when we are fully conscious and awake, there is nothing in which to react – if we don’t like what is going on in reality, we find the corresponding cause inside ourselves and we realign our thoughts, beliefs, emotions and actions.

BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR REALITY DOES NOT MAKE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHERS!
The tricky part is being responsible for your experience of reality without taking on the responsibility of others. As soon as you try to control the experience of another, or believe that it is any of your business, you drop into lower consciousness.

In other words, you are responsible for your experience of reality which includes your experience of everyone, yet, another person’s experience of reality is none of your business; even what someone thinks or feels about you is none of your business.

If you try to control anyone, in anyway, you give them your power. The only thing that you can ever control is your own energy which amounts to your personal and intrinsic power. This means that when your spouse, child or friend is having a challenging experience, you don’t take responsibility for their experience. You allow them to have their own experience of reality, without trying to control them or it.

You can, however, quietly uncover the inner part of you that might be responsible for that experience, and you can release or adjust any beliefs, judgments or views that may be manifesting as the others experience. This means that it is still about you and not about them.

Yet, from the highest level of consciousness, you allow everyone their experience, without needing to alter or change it in anyway. In other words, you trust the flow and wisdom of life. You are the most powerful when you allow others their experience, and you take complete responsibility for yours.

This is the super conscious state of true spiritual power.

This is also where we tap into our power to consciously create what we truly desire in life. Your intrinsic power manifests as loving relationships, creative expression, living as free as you feel, success in realizing your dreams, and being truly joyful and peaceful in all that you do.

As we Master Our Energy, through mastering our thoughts, beliefs and emotions, we begin to understand that this is the only power and control that we have over our reality, but also the only one that is needed.

As long as we believe that the outside world acts independently of us, we have no power, but once we remember that the outside world is a reflection of our inner world, we have unlimited power – to change ourselves, hence change our world. This is the grand mechanism for conscious co-creation.

By taking complete responsibility for your life, without self-judgment, you can easily raise your level of consciousness, thereby accessing greater intrinsic power. When you use your life as feedback and adjust your inner world accordingly, until the outside world lines up in the ways you most desire, you can make a quantum jump in spiritual evolution. In this way, owning your power could be a shortcut to awakening.

A discussion exploring whether Consciousness can be absent.

From the weekend in Amsterdam – May 2016. For access to the full recording click here: http://non-duality.rupertspira.com/wa…

A discussion shedding light on synchronistic events and desires within the context of ” Consciousness only ” model.

Posted on June 14, 2017 
Riding on the wings of thought, I enter the world of time. Riding on the wings of thought I enter the world of the mind.” Leonard Jacobson

The mind is a dimension of consciousness that allows you to leave the present moment and participate in the world of time. It is an intricate world which contains all of your past memories and future imaginings. It contains all your opinions, concepts, ideas and beliefs. It gives you a sense of life beyond this moment and to that extent it is illusory in nature. It is a lot like cyber space. It isn’t real and yet you can access it simply by thinking.

If you get too involved in your thoughts, ideas and opinions, you will find yourself absorbed into the world of the mind. You will find yourself living in the past and future rather than the present moment, which is the only life really available to you.

The mind is like a computer and like any computer, it can only function according to its programming. Our minds are programmed in early childhood with such limiting beliefs as I am not loved, I am not wanted, I am not good enough, I can’t do it, I am all alone, I am not allowed to be myself, I am not allowed to feel or express my feelings, I can’t have what I want, and I have to accept what others want for me. To the extent that you are living in the past and future world of the mind, these limiting beliefs will flow into every aspect of your life.

Awakening involves freeing yourself from these limiting beliefs and opening more fully into the present moment.

To be present is your natural state. In fact, there is only one way to leave the present moment and that is to think your way out of here. And where will you go? All thought is about the past or future and that is where your thoughts will take you. You will find yourself caught in the past and future. The more frequent the thoughts and the more you believe in your thoughts, opinions and beliefs, the more you will find yourself imprisoned within the world of the mind.

Most of our thoughts are unconscious and unintentional. Most of us are addicted to thinking, and so the thoughts just keep arising, pulling us from some memory of the past or some fantasy in the future. If you are not sure if thinking is a significant addiction, then close your eyes and don’t think for 30 seconds. You will discover that the thoughts simply don’t stop. It is not until you awaken fully into the present moment that you will recognize how lost in the mind you have been.

When you awaken into Presence, the mind is silent. There are no thoughts and so there is no past or future, at least not in those moments of true Presence. I am not against thinking. The more present you are, the clearer your thoughts will be when you consciously choose to think. You can still think, but now you are present, choosing to think in a conscious and intentional way. You are free of those random, unconscious and unintended thoughts. You are intending to think, you are aware of your thoughts and when you have completed whatever you are thinking about, you naturally and spontaneously return to a state of silence and Presence.

It is impossible to participate in the world of time without thought. However, for most people, thinking is habitual. Most of us are caught in a world of separation and illusion and the doorway to Presence is firmly closed. When we recognize this, the process of liberation can begin.

What has fighting back, getting into fights truly done for you or anyone else… As it ever brough you joy or better yet closure… Dive in and break away the resistence that holds us all back at one point or another…

Francis Bennett speaks about the co-existence of an ordinary entity with a culture,gender and relationship, and the non-self of Pure Consciousness.
