The Frequency of WOW!!

Children experience “wow” constantly. Everything is big and wonderful but as they are conditioned, by parents, teachers and other influential people in their lives, over and over, the “wows” become fewer and farther between. We are reminded by Jesus to be as little children not because they are so sweet and innocent (which, by the way, they are) but because they are so much more aware. Their awareness of the world is not limited to the narrow perspective we develop as, so called, conscious beings. As adults we often become annoyed at the frequent questioning of “why” little children seem to be asking constantly and about everything they see. They really are not asking “why” to understand “why” as we tend to think about it rather they are asking “why” this doesn’t seem to matter as much to you as it does to me. If you consider the things that matter as adults it becomes clear that we have lost a lot, if not all, of the sense of wonder and awareness little children have.

Where did it go? What happens to us is what we are doing to them!! Children have an incredible sense of awareness and seem to be in awe of everything that goes on. In fact, we can look back and remember very special times in our lives where some event, circumstance or activity seemed to enliven every fiber of our being and just thinking about it gives us chills. What happens to this sense of awe and wonder?

We are born into this world with a heightened awareness that, from the moment of birth, is transformed into another kind of awareness. It is the awareness all of us are conditioned to view the world as and it is not the awareness we had as children. What we had as children is conditioned out of us by those who have had it conditioned out of them.

Have you ever returned to your childhood elementary school, home or some other place that you remember so vividly as a big and wondrous place only to find it small and nowhere near as awesome as you remembered it? What happened? In essence you grew up but more dramatically your awareness of the world went from wonder and awe to “as an adult here is what is important.” Our conditioning takes us from an awareness of complete wonder and awe to a false sense of what is important in the world and in our lives.

Jesus’ admonition to be as little children was a reminder to each of us to get back to the sense of awareness, the sense of awe and amazement we all once experienced as little children and give up the conditioning that has replaced it. Imagine how fun the world would be if we didn’t put careers, education, politics, affiliations and all the other things we consider to be so important, ahead of the sheer wonder of being alive in an incredibly wondrous world that is so rich and full of fun and beauty we, like children, can’t get enough of it and it never stops being big and wonderful. Being like little children is having the awareness of wonder, awe and fascination of every aspect of life not complicated by the conditioning that most adults consider important.

“Be as little children” was a challenge to adults not to be innocent, but to have the awareness we have all experienced as little children! The child is the parent of the adult. We all know what it was like to be a child and how incredible everything was in that world. When we go back to sensing reality in that way what we now see as important becomes less so.
The illusion we now experience as adults is just that – an illusion that only has significance because we have been conditioned to view it that way.

The things we see as important, as adults are not. The awareness we had as children is!
Change your awareness to that of a child and the “now” becomes “WOW!!”

Want to change your “frequency of WOW?” Change your awareness of now to the awareness of “how” you once were. Find your inner child and WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!

How do you define awareness?

How clear do you think your perception of life really is? We are really two people happening all at once, e.g., the egotistically created self and the self we came to earth with that is almost always in conflict with the other. Tell me what you think controls your life. Your ego or the person you were before you got here. I’d love to hear. Please see my website at; http// Namaste

So how do you define awarenes? I’d love your thoughts

Now Versus Then

Chronological time is a great deceiver in perceiving the the future relative to the past or present. As humans, living in three dimensional time and space,we have come to accept that the events of our lives occur on a continuum and that somehow we must categorize the past in such a way that it flows seamlessly into the future. In fact it might be said that the events of the past lead to the events of the future. In truth they do not. Time is a point not a line. There is no chronological time when it comes to life and living. The only place of “time” in our existence is now; this very instant. In this instant we control everything in our lives and we have power to change anything past or future. Power is in the present! Altering the past or knowing the future is nothing compared to the creative power we possess at this very moment, however, to say moment implies a time continuum that locks us in time. Perhaps the better way to express or think about time is as a sequence of chronological events.

Time in and of itself does not exist. It is nothing more than a mental construct designed to allow referencing and sequential order to the events and circumstances of our lives. In reality the point at which an event occurs is of no consequence to the actual event itself. In other words “it doesn’t matter “when” an event happened as much as that “it” happened in the first place.” The time or sequence of an event adds no value to the event in terms of it’s effect on us. It is only the point at which we experience something that it has any effect on us and at that very moment time, as we have come to think of it, has stopped. In fact, not only has it stopped it has ceased to exist at all.

Our need to find sequencing and factor time into our reality only pulls us backward or forward and away from “all” there is and all there will ever be, which is right now. If you look at the events of your life on an infinite scale where does time come into it? It can’t because on an infinite scale time is completely irrelevent.

It is the mind of man, the ego, that needs referencing of time and as a result the mind catalogs the events of our lives in such a way that we can reconstruct our history in an endless effort to find meaning, purpose and cause for everything that has occurred and to explain why we are the way we are. Time is part of our illusion. It’s trap is to tie us to the past in a way that makes us think that from the past comes the future or that without knowledge of it we are doomed to repeat it. In both cases it is part of an eloborate illusion our egocentric minds have devised to keep us from the power that exists in the present.

Now is all that matters. Now has no ties to the past and no concerns about the future. Staying as fully present and in the now as possible is the only way to know the inner self and to find our divine nature. Divinity knows not time. You are a god regardless of what has happened in the past or what might happen in the future.

The power of gods resides right here right now. Be still, feel the now and know that god is within you.
