Does taking tests feel out of control, dependent, at risk of failure?
Look closely: Does the pending test, which hasn’t happened, actually “make” you feel afraid, judged, and out of control–or are the fearful or frustrating thoughts *about* the test causing it? Continue reading
Discover how nobody is actually ever rude, and therefore
your whole experience and perspective can be turned around
from aggression to compassion and peace.
Heading out for a walk with a friend, she started out in an exasperated state, complaining that Americans are rude. Then the story unfolds about how she went to an event with hundreds of people and was about to sit down when a woman came over and told her, “That’s Amanda’s seat!”
My friend continued, “She was so rude! And it was how she said it, with that tone of voice.” Now this friend has known me long enough to know something about my perspective, and she was not particularly surprised to hear me say, “No-one is ever rude to you,” but she was resistant.
But what if they ARE being rude?! She said emphatically. Continue reading
Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Does Emerson have it right, that once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen? That may be what appears to happen, but knowing what I know now, after what happened to me in the woods, I know that nothing is separate, and that there is no separate “me” deciding. Continue reading
No. Thoughts are powerless, harmless, in and of themselves. Left along they can come and go because they only have a momentary existence, and no reality.
Thoughts are powerless
The brain’s job is to offer you thoughts, as options, not as mandatory, and it does a brilliant job of that, automatically churning out 40,000 thoughts a day, it is said. But you don’t believe them all, nor are you even aware of them all. So thoughts cannot “make” you suffer. Only when you Continue reading

Do they dictate my daily decisions?

Cindy shows people how to be happy for life, without controlling thoughts, changing circumstances, or healing the past.
To be continued…
Cindy Teevens is one of the leading inner peace and happiness facilitators, exceptional and unique in helping people shift their state and transform their lives permanently, from the inside out.
Six years after the violent suicide of her father, in one moment her own intense suffering was swapped for amazing joy, altering her life permanently. Happiness and peace became her predominant states.
Understandings began to come about how we have been living backwards, how we have mistaken the outside for the inside, and how we have tethered ourselves to the uncontrollable winds of change in the midst of freedom—and how we can return to truth, sanity, and peace.
Months after discovering joy, one day in the woods she was knocked to her knees by an explosion of love that was followed by the end of time and space, self and other, and when she looked up at the trees, she saw them *as* herself, as everything is. Uncontrollable laughter belted out from the belly of being, tickling every cell in her body as it laid on the snow, laughing and crying at the cosmic joke.
When you say “I know…” something about someone, you are giving them the evil eye, a.k.a. the ego eye, or the ego “i.”
What we are actually saying when we say this, is “I know a memory I have about something that (I perceive) happened in the past.” When you claim to know someone’s thoughts, feeling, or purpose, you are doing what in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is called “mind reading.” The factual truth is, unless someone tells you their experience, thought, or purpose, you don’t know.

The new age movement is awash with ideas of creating a new you.
Words like growing, learning, expanding, creating, and co-creating are all the rage. But there’s something very shallow about creating something that can be re-created again and again. It points to the non-reality of it all.
I can think the thought, “the stove is off,” all the while the house is going up in flames. You can hold absolutely any thought, including ones that have absolutely no ground in reality. If you accept “the stove is off,” you have only indirect thought-knowledge. If it is really important to you to have absolute, direct knowledge, what must you do? Continue reading
Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy
A Halloween Lesson
The reason I speak repeatedly about thoughts in presentations, workshops, retreats, and sessions, is because there is a mass unconsciousness about them. Practically the whole of society believes that…
- just because a thought arises it is true, and
- if a thought feels bad, it must be true.
So no scrutiny or questioning of thoughts, nor a close enough look at the true cause of pain. It’s just widely accepted, agreed, and acted upon that “our” thoughts are truth. Merely because they arise, thoughts are almost worshipped, unconsciously, even though we know, without a doubt, that thoughts have no direct association with reality. They come out of thin air, hang in thin air, and mysteriously disappear into thin air. I can think and speak the thought that the stove is hot, when it’s not. Or that it’s cold, when it’s hot.
Another strange thing about thoughts is the fact that Continue reading
Psychologists: “…it’s possible to see an object clearly without realizing it’s there.”
On September 18th the driver of an Ottawa double-decker bus ran into a train, killing six people and injuring thirty.
The safety barricade and systems were fully operating, and the train was driving relatively slowly. Investigators have found no cause for the collision so far.
The driver was only seen trying to brake in the last few seconds before impact. One news article the Ottawa Citizen says,
Psychologists say it’s possible for drivers to see an object clearly without realizing it’s there.”
I found that to be a stunning expert statement for our society at this time, and very close to my experience of not seeing a man’s face with two different coloured eyes. In that experience (and a few other similar ones), I realized that it is not the eyes that see, but Continue reading
How to Change Your Thoughts
On Facebook today, this image caught my interest:
It caught my interest because it is both true and funny. Everything we try to run away from is in our heads, and so what we are trying to do is impossible. It also points out that there is no thing to run from.
There does seem to be recognition of this truth within the masses, because people are trying to do something about it. This is demonstrated by the person who posted it, adding: “Everything we feel is based upon a thought – so if we don’t like the way we are feeling – change the thoughts we are having : )”
The problem is, that thought is also just in your head. Continue reading
