Love is all that we have. Love is the warmth of the universe. We are sometimes harsh on perversion and what we view as wickedness, but this is not to say that we shouldn't love all. A heart absent of love is a cold heart. So take our warning to distance yourself from those who make you cold and instead surround yourself with those who make you warm. If you judge people so harshly then your heart will become cold; so there must be a balance between who and what you allow into your life and the amount that you judge others for their perceived wickedness. No one is squeaky clean and that's not the point. We need to strive for purity and make our life sacred, but at the same time we can't walk around pretending that we are all holy and white. Have compassion for others, tell them you love them, and also don't be afraid to tell them when they are being a bit of a pervert or a creep. No matter their position, status, or age, a pervert is a pervert and no one should allow them to step on you or others. So be strong. This doesn't mean that you are judging them, it means that you love them and don't want to see them falling further off balance. So be solid, be the rock or the counter weight that loves others and is strong enough to tell others when they are wrong or infringing upon others. Not from a position of judgment but from a position of warm and loving compassion. This is true love.
If someone is complaining and if you remain silent you are contributing to their complaining. Sometimes we need to vent, but complaining is generally not healthy because it comes from a position of weakness. So tell them: "please stop. You are complaining." Otherwise they may continue to complain about something when they could be putting forth concerted action and real effort in healing the problem by changing it. We can't walk around telling people they are wrong all the time, but if you are present then it is your duty to help them. Being silent helps you, but some encouraging advice may get through to them. Speak from the heart not from the head.
If someone is making inappropriate remarks about a lady; tell them to keep their thoughts to theirself. You don't have to hear it, and you certainly don't have to participate in it. But you can offer a tactful nudge in the right direction. It bothers me when people disrespect women and sadly, oftentimes this is what some women feed on. They like the game of the cocky guy's insults because they are so used to being told by people who they perceive as weaker than them telling them how beautiful they are all the time. So they are attracted to the total opposite of being called beautiful. Instead they find themselves attracted to the "bad guy." They may not even be aware as to why they find themselves being treated poorly or even abused. They just know that they "love" them. So there is a fine line, but if someone is outright disrespecting another person, and they are not playing the game back with them, stand up for them, be the defender of the weak. An example that I recently saw was of someone on a subway getting the snot beat out of them, not a single soul stood up in their defense. Again, for the most part it is best to mind your own business, but if you witness an experience that you know that is unjust, do something about it. Be bold. Even if you don't participate in the fight, stand up and let the attacker know that they are out numbered. But then again on the other hand, perhaps the person being beat needed that experience. Some people need a good ole' punching in the nose. I've had my fair share, and I've delivered my fair share also. But it was in my giving and receiving of bloody noses that lead me to where I am today. Everyone fantasizes about being a hero at one point, but sometimes the hero is infact the person delivering the punch. So just use your best judgement when and when not to get involved, but also know that sometimes people are truly innocent and need defending, and other times they may desperately need that beating to change their life. Some of the best lessons in life are delivered by the physical exchange of energy. We are not to be the scourge of the world, but sometimes the scourge of the world learns through those experiences and discovers the warmth of compassion. But they never would have gotten to that path without being a tough guy for many years.
Being silent is often the best method because you remain within your strength, but also being silent does not always help others learn and sometimes a powerful word can help set someone straight. Silence is usually the best option, but if you love someone you will try and help them see why what they are doing is not healthy. Do not infringe upon others. Allow them to be as stupid and silly as they need to be, because their life is sacred and we can never fully understand anything but our own lives. But a word of compassion can help point the way, it will be up to them to walk the path. And when they walk that path there may be some physical lessons to learn along the way, and a punch in the nose teaches a boy what it means to become a man: to accept full responsibility for their actions.
Some actions might just deserve a punch in the nose. =P
The Book of Powers
is AJ's latest book. It is a powerful book to help you transform into a person with true power and understand how to spot corrupt power.
Hello there all of my beautiful friends and family. I love you all. It feels so good to be alive. Feels so, feels so, feels so good to be alive. Feels so good to be alive. And I pray that you are all well, warm and happy.
I just wanted to take a moment to update with some positive vibes and inspiration, and let y'all know a little whats been going on with me in my neck of the woods. Things here have been interesting, strange, bizarre, and even at some points a little spooky. But as a new friend told me: "What doesn't kill you makes you." ~P's Up
Today and the past few days things have made a positive change towards real understanding and I have a feeling of deep love, connection and compassion to all people. I got the message, and I know what I need to do next. Love. Be free. "I can be I and you can be you."..."Just stop and listen to yourself before you listen to anyone else. Let's kick it in a conscious place." ~Justin Ratowsky
I've been reflecting on some memories, thinking about my friend Justin Ratowsky and listening to his music right now. Check out that link above and meditate on his songs. They will make you happy. I love that guy. I love what he's doing for the world also. That's the wonderful thing about music, everything is a vibration, and if your vibration is right, then it will change the world around you regardless whether it is mass distributed. I always used to say it only takes one person to have an audience, one person to make a book read, only one person to have a friend, and it only takes one person to make a difference. The right intention will deliver the right result. :)
Ahh, peacefulness, relaxation.
Spring is here and summer is near. Today is a beautiful day, it's warm. It's beautiful outside, the flower garden is in full bloom and the bees are busy doing their magic. It is a beautiful life. It truly is.
Other than reflecting on my old friends and memories (my phone is broken so I am using my old phone, many good memories are stored in there.) I finally finished my book
. I have been working on The Book of Powers
for over two years. From Easter Sunday 2013 until this past Easter, 2015. So that's a load off my shoulders - we also published two other books
in the meantime. So now all three books are published and available. Thank you, I am grateful. I am fulfilled. I am happy. And I have faith in the beauty within my intentions. :)
The next chapter is coming. And I have made my decision. It has been a tough decision, especially considering everything that I need is right here, with the exception of one. So my decision has been made. I bought my plane tickets and I am moving to Taiwan. I don't know how long I will be gone, but nothing is really certain. I am just thankful for every single breath that I am given. At any moment life as we know it could leave us. But there is nothing to fear if your heart is balanced and you possess the purity of a child. A heart lighter than a feather will soar.
So soon I will be boarding a plane and flying out of the USA and will land in Taipei, Taiwan. I place my faith in the hands of God and I know that I will be fine. So to all of my family and close friends, please do not worry, I will be fine, everything will be fine and I will be back =). I promise. :) <3
As for this website and the publishing company, Taijitu House
and everything else, the work will still continue, I will still write on here and publish books. Ranald and I are working on a second book together, co-writing this one, and also we are translating The Children of R
into German, that should be finished pretty soon. The other book we are working on will be a short one. Ole' Ranald is a funny guy, he has a good sense of humor.
I also made a new friend and I feel that he deserves recognition here. Thank you P. I got your 6 bruh.
So my friends, family, and anyone else who reads on here, I am about to embark on a new adventure and will keep you all updated on here, my Facebook page, and on The Truth Awaits.com FB page
. I will be bringing my camera with me, so you can expect to see some sweet photos of the adventure and the beauties Taiwan holds. I will also make videos over there and may even create a new YouTube channel. Either way. This is going to be fun.
I love you all,
Compassion: Compassion is an empathy that allows us to connect intimately to the hearts of others. Compassion grants us awareness and understanding that allows us to relate with other people's feelings and emotions - it also acts as a guiding intuition that helps us to just "know" the right things to say or not to say. Compassion is an act of humility; the most true, the most honest, and the most heart-felt way to communicate with another human-being. With this, compassion is necessary for realizing a truthful understanding of ourselves and the world that we all live within.
When one is compassionate the focus is removed from "me" and is instead transferred towards that of someone other than yourself. In focusing on someone else you are momentarily replacing your own needs for the needs of others. You are showing them love and you are consciously making the effort to try to understand them in their entirety—regardless of your own opinions, judgment and emotions. It has been said that the spiritual journey is very short, only three feet long. One foot down from your head to your heart and two feet outward to embrace the person nearest.
Compassion is an awareness that must be cultivated, grown, and tended to. One does not usually become compassionate overnight or without discipline. The human natural state is to be selfish, compassion is reverse to what is typically pleasing to self-interest. And that is not to say once one becomes compassionate they will always be compassionate, but if compassion is made a constant daily, hourly, minutely, a priority at every moment, then it will act as a guiding intuition that will help ensure we rarely step wrong, and when we do... We will compassionately ask for forgiveness, forgive ourselves, and atone it by agreeing that we will step more carefully in the future.
Compassion, forgiveness, and absolution: the three keys to unlocking your heart.
Thank you for reading. (AJ)
It was exactly a year ago that my friend Justin Ratowsky
invited me to donate to his charity water campaign. I felt it was important to give because it is such a small privilege I have taken for granted. Not having access to clean or even cold water is hard for me to imagine, much less entire communities that are deprived of basic resources. But the reality is there are people elsewhere in the world where clean water is a blessing. I am inspired to help change that.
Going through our daily lives we collect all sorts of garbage and negativity. This negative energy attaches itself to our etheric body and energy fields. If you are unfamiliar with the etheric fields or don't believe in them, or don't understand them that's okay. This article still holds truth without all of the technical esoteric explanations. For now simply imagine your body is an electromagnet memory bank that absorbs words, ideas, opinions, and influence from others and our surroundings. The words and things others say to us effects us whether we consciously realize it or not. For example: an argument with your significant other or a casual remark can make your confidence/energy drop by conflicting your Ego's opinion of itself. This puts you in a defensive position and when people are defensive and insecure they do things to compensate. This makes the mind think it is vulnerable, weak, and therefore somehow closer to death. Suddenly an argument turns into something that is life threatening; which explains why some people overreact, because to them you are threatening them with the possibility of death. If the problem isn't resolved immediately, say before you go to sleep, your subconscious mind allows this negative energy work its way deeper into your etheric until it is literally accepted as a part of you.
This is why it is very important to release negativity early on, and not allow ourselves to say things that infringe upon others. It is important to express self-control, but of course we all know that and usually don't intentionally say hurtful things. Sometimes this is just a part of being human. If apologizing does not cure your discontent feeling and talking does not fix your problem, there is always the option of releasing the negativity out of your aura into the Universe. I will explain an effective way of doing this now.
Find a place to sit quietly where you won't be disturbed and sit down with your legs crossed. You don't have to make any specific position of the hands, just sit there with them on your lap, with your palms facing up. Close your eyes and begin breathing at a comfortable rate focusing on the air entering and exiting through your nostrils. Imagine as you breath in you are attracting all things that are good, loving, and peaceful, and as you exhale gently release all problems, fears, tension, and frustration. Imagine a nice calming purple energy falling upon you from above. This purple healing mist is breathed in through your nose and distributed throughout your body healing everything it comes in contact with. It is effortless and natural. You force nothing, you just relax. Continue breathing slower and slower with each breath you are healing your body and balancing your energy. As you balance yourself your aura has no room for negativity because it has no place to attach. If your etheric is jagged and broken, negative energy can attach itself, but if you are calm and balanced your aura is smooth and balanced so you are invincible to negativity. Do this exercise for about 24 minutes sitting completely still. The reason I say 24 minutes is because its one for each hour of the day. I think that is reasonable. Your Ego may try to fight you with thoughts of doing the dishes or checking Facebook, but if you persevere you will come to feeling refreshed and centered, and the negativity will be gone from your energy field.
Doing an exercise such as this is a discipline. It probably won't be comfortable to begin with, but then again you aren't comfortable feeling in the first place, thats why you are doing the exercise. The lesson here is to love yourself enough to take action to release negativity before it has the chance to work its way deeper. As I said in my book the "Book of Powers" love is nothing more than concentration. If you concentrate on yourself then you love yourself, if you concentrate on a loved one, you give them your attention and focus, therefore you love them. So remember love yourself enough to release all negativity as early as you pick it up. Its like a stinky shoe, if you don't clean it or throw it out, it will stink up the whole house.
