Welcome


If you're interested in conscious living, then likely you're just as equally interested in Zen but simply not knowingly interested.

Usually Zen is associated with Japanese culture and religious or Buddhism practice, but true Zen (or at least the way this site uses the term) is emphasizing the value of conscious living.

Zen and conscious living come together and go hand-in-hand. Hence, conscious living without Zen is a huge oversight and vice-versa because these are not two.

"Conscious Flex: Zen & Conscious Living" is design to offer a partnership of how these seemingly two are actually one movement.

Zen is the foundational spaciousness or presence from which conscious living derives. In the same manner that an artist, inventor or intuitive actions come from the stillness in the silence of non-movement.

In other words, Zen is a resting in the powerful space of not thinking about thought, not doing anything about doing, not trying to be the solver or understander, the knower collector but simply allowing the intelligence of life to flow through you and as you.

What is described can be thought of as meditation or accessing our intuition, but it's actually just natural living.

Often you will see kids in a natural resting space or presence and we tell them "snap out of it" because we think they are in "lala land" or "fantasy land" and not paying attention but actually they are simply being completely present with what is. It's natural to just rest and be, that's the flow from which insight and wisdom arises from.

Hence, conscious living is also the natural flow of how life organically expands upon itself. Consequently, conscious living is Zen living, when it's pure and without conceptual overlays.

  • How to Unlock Your Infinite Potential (Part 1)

    What exactly is ‘Infinite Potential’? Everyone has different ideas and impressions to what words mean. So let us break it down starting with ‘Infinite.’ Some related words and synonyms to ‘Infinite’ are: without limits, boundless, endless, illimitable, immeasurable, indefinite, limitless, measureless, unbounded, unfathomable, unlimited; countless, incalculable, inestimable, innumerable, unmeasured; inexhaustible, and vast.

    Some related words and synonyms to ‘Potential’ are possibility, conceivable, imaginable, plausible, thinkable, assumed, achievable, attainable, doable, feasible, practicable, viable, and workable.

    So now when you see ‘Infinite Potential’ you can replace the words with ones that make more sense to you and give it more meaning to you as a individual.

    I would say the most common phrase of words that mean ‘Infinite Potential’ is ‘Unlimited Possibilities.’ Therefore, if it helps to think of it that way then great, now that we established a more effective way of communicating let us imagine life like a series of experiences and in these series of experiences imagine the human consciousness picks up puzzle pieces along the way.

    To explain this as simple as possible I will use a quote that you might have heard before. I will use this quote as an example and use it as a reference point to help explain how the consciousness develops to advance through life.

    For example, you hear “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Perhaps you are not sure why but you know it is important so you store it within the consciousness. Just like when you imagine working on a puzzle, you have a piece of the puzzle, but you are not sure where it goes. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is just an example of one-puzzle pieces of life. But the more puzzle pieces you put together, the easier it is to see where the other puzzle pieces go and soon there will be no puzzle pieces left. At this point compared to the puzzle pieces a big picture is in-formation.

    Therefore, in life the more your consciousness advances the more of the bigger picture you see. So now, your consciousness is working on seeing the bigger picture.




    The consciousnesses advances and as it does this you start to notice that you are now collecting picture pieces, not puzzle pieces.

    So as you start collecting picture pieces, not puzzle pieces:

    You start to notice the picture pieces you collected are forming a bigger picture.

    Through this same series of experiences, the human consciousness picks up picture pieces along the way and then you hear “a movie is worth a billion words.” Perhaps you are not sure why but you know it is important so you store it within the consciousness.

    The more your consciousness advances the more pictures you see. So now your consciousness is working on seeing the bigger movie, but as it does this you start to notice that you are now collecting movie pieces, not picture pieces.

    Through this series of experiences, the human consciousness picks up movie pieces along the way and then you hear “an infinite movie is worth infinite words.” Perhaps you are not sure why but you know it is important so you store it within the consciousness.

    The more your consciousness advances the more movie pieces you see. So now your consciousness is working on seeing the bigger movie, but as it does this you start to notice that you are now collecting infinite movie pieces, not movie pieces.

    So as you start collecting infinite movie pieces, not movie pieces:

    You start to notice the infinite movie pieces you collected are forming a bigger picture.

    Through the series of experiences, the human consciousness picks up infinite movie pieces along the way and then you hear “an infinite movie is worth you.” Perhaps you are not sure why but you know it is important so you store it within the consciousness.

    The more your consciousness advances the more infinite movie pieces you see. So now your consciousness is working on seeing the bigger infinite movie, but as it does this you start to notice that you are now collecting you pieces; not infinite movie pieces.

    Through the series of experiences, the human consciousness picks up ‘you pieces’ along the way and then you hear “an Infinite Potential is worth you.” Perhaps you are not sure why but you know it is important so you store it within the consciousness.

    The more your consciousness advances the more ‘you pieces’ you see. So now, your consciousness is working on seeing the bigger Infinite Potential, but as it does this you start to notice that you are now collecting yourself to know yourself as Infinite Potential!

    Series of Experiences
    Therefore, you now have a little better idea how everything pulls together. It is always through a series of experiences. Everything in life is about these series of experiences. Everything in life is part of these unfolding experiences.

    Unlimited Potential
    There are experiences unfolding in everything we do with life. These experiences give us the opportunity to see more in ourselves than we can think was possible, by knowing we are much more. In fact we literally have unlimited potential to do, be and create anything in life that we desire. If you think about it through the series of events in your memories there have been times where you have seen yourself as so much more than what you see yourself right now.Would you agree?

    Let us use the parenting role as an example: you have a child and they have always been shy. Extremely shy that it is affecting everything they do or will not do because of their shyness. Therefore, as the loving parent that you are, you try to convince your child that they have to overcome their shyness to progress in life. However, the child is convinced that they cannot change. They say things like, “I can’t” or “it is not possible”. Therefore, through the child’s growing years you try to explain as much as you can about how to overcome shyness, but you seem unable to break them of their comfort level. Then through a series of events as the child grows into a teen they decide they need a job and have to step a little outside the comfort zone to have an interview, and they realize they need this job to move out on their own so they have even more of a drive. Through a series of experiences, the shyness disappears and they end up choosing the choice they thought they could not choose.

    These memories or moments were a glimpse into life. You imagined yourself to be more then you were allowing yourself to see. Albert Einstein said it this way: “Your imagination is your preview to life’s coming attractions."

    They do not have to be just impulses though. These moments when you feel powerful, you can create and will yourself into these moments to the point where you know. You can create a place inside of you that gives rise to a new concept of yourself.
    There is a way to advance the consciousness mind with an unbelievable and phenomenal acceleration of time. In other words, you do not need to go through a series of events to advance the consciousness to know itself as infinite potential. Your consciousness will lead you through a series of events to know yourself as infinite potential rather you want to or not. It is not about a choice of if it will happen but a choice of when it will happen.

    In the next article I will explain how to skip the series of events to know, feel and experience yourself as Infinite Potential.
