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 designed 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.

  • What Exactly Is Free Will? Part One: the Illusion of Freedom

    I have been questioning this more and more, after I wrote this article. In my research, I discovered some illusionary and intense things; about how limiting our free will is, especially to what people think of as being freedom.

    Deep in our history as far back as 300,000 years, a very powerful and advanced knowledgeable group of people (that had mass amount of profound information) begin using what they had against the rest of the population, to control everyone. This information can be found throughout the world, yet the general population have only a small hint of it. A lot of my past research has been diving into this area, but just recently it has all been coming back as I questioned it more.

    This small group of people developed a secret society so defined (into such a packed knit plan) that the carrying out of this plan has effected every generation, to the point where it still exists today! Not only does this plan to control people exist today, it exists with such power that they have mastered the art of making the illusion of freedom seem real. I will break down how this overwhelming control is in process and I will explain how they manipulate us into this illusion of freedom. These things are becoming known more now then ever in the human consciousness, so you might find a sense of familiarity in it.

    A few months ago, I was speaking to my stepfather about the infinite potential of human beings. The conversation lead to how in my research of hypnotherapy, meditations, mind manipulation, and multi-personalities some amazing things have happened. I mentioned how years before I was reading an article on how the use of hypnotherapy produced cell regeneration, in order to grow a foot back in a client. In addition, reports of multi-personality disorders have been recorded to change the medical effects of the body when another personality comes out. Other research on diabetes, addictions, and phobias, there were experiments/ reports done that point to evidence of (diabetes, addictions, and phobias) not being present the instant an altered personality emerges. All these reports, articles, and documents suggest that the mind can heal or create anything under the influence of belief.

    For example, each personality in a multi-personality disorder individual, believes itself to be real and therefore creates diabetes, addictions, or phobias based on the belief alone. In addition, while under hypnosis, you can suggest almost anything (as long it does not counter flick the individual’s value system) to the subconscious mind to create and produce any result with almost instant results. In conclusion, it suggests that belief is the most powerful device to seeing our infinite potential. As I finished saying that, my stepfather asked, “If there is the case of these things existing, then why have I not heard about it?”

    Control Through the Most Common Sources
    To answer that question we must first establish where the general population gathers their information from, which is from the media. The main media consists of the television, newspapers, internet news, and the radio. The information I just mentioned above, stays out of the media for the purpose of control. When you look at the main media programs (television, newspapers, internet news, radio), what are the main senses that these things effect? Moreover, what two senses out of the five, do most people relay on in most given situations? Sight and sound are the fundamental key senses most people convey with in their day-to-day life. Hence, the reason you hear things like, “That sounds good, I will see you there.” or “I have to see it to believe it.”.

    Not only does the conscious mind lean towards these two senses, the subconscious mind leans towards it as well. Although both minds are effected in very negative ways, when it comes to the media, the subconscious mind picks up more on the hidden messages through the sight and sounds that the consciousness cannot notice. It is has been studied and experimented many times over, that the conscious mind will edit out things that it feels should not be there based on its beliefs.

    For a perfect small example of this conscious editing, take a look at this image:

    Keep looking at the image until you find a mistake within it. Some people will notice it right away, but more times then not (generalizing) people will not see a mistake like this without it being pointed out to them (if you can not find the mistake, the answer is on the bottom of this post). That is just a small sliver of the iceberg. For this type of control to work, it is about what your subconscious mind is doing, while your conscious mind is being manipulated. Your conscious mind ignores what is there and the subconscious mind picks up on everything.

    Understanding Sound
    Now before we can examine how the population is being controlled using sound through the media, we must first recognize that there is more to sound then just audible range of a source. Sound is the force behind everything, for the reason that it creates energy into matter and holds the form of that energy, through patterns in resonating frequencies. Sound holds energy in position by the speed of the frequency vibration. In other words, everything you see as solid is nothing more then a group of particles moving and vibrating at such tremendous speeds. The speed makes it feel and look solid to the naked eye, but once you look at it under a microscope you will see the moving vibration. Everything in existence operates in this way. Yet some objects will seem less solid then others, since the difference in the vibrational state or the number of vibrations per second, also known as the resonant frequency (Warning: that link will guide you to a video example of this, but beware of your speaker volume because the sound can get quite piercing).

    As long as the frequency is vibrating at the same continuous constant speed, then the object will always remain in the same state and appear to be solid. Every organ in our body resonates with a natural frequency and the vibration state of the body as a whole. Every thought and emotion is an energy frequency, that is continuously affecting the vibrational state of the body. Which can knock the natural frequency off course creating illness. The heart is the centers core of operation within the body, that is interacting with frequencies throughout the body to create the natural heartbeat. Under the influence of emotional patterns and thought waves of stress, the natural heartbeat frequency overworks because of the disharmonizing stressful vibrational energy.

    Controlled Through Subconscious Fear
    What does this have to do with the controlling of people through the sound of the media? Let us examine the two controlling forces of television and radio; both use a broadcasting system through a very precise frequency no matter what the channel, they both give off an exact frequency of unnatural vibrations that trigger a design to disengage the natural body frequency and stimulate a frequency of fear. This frequency wavelength bypasses the audible range of the consciousness to be in direct contact with the subconscious. I hope you can appreciate how easily the subconscious mind is influence through such control.

    Of course, this is just a small bit of the control going on within the media, but if I explained it well enough I am hoping you get the idea. Thus back to the question my stepfather asked, “If there is the case of these things existing, then why have I not heard about it?”. The same reason why most people are left in the dark of important information, for control. Everyday science is uncovering advances in technology, the consciousness, energy field’s (etc) that can enhance this world over night. Alternatively, we could have been in the loop of such things, especially to stop the fear of simple issues. For example, when the fear of the Y2K was spreading through the planet, all it would have taken was a group of professional computer programmers to explain through the media why the system will not fail. Yet if I remember correctly, the source that started the rumor came from the media itself. Therefore not only is the fear through the frequency to influence the subconscious, but also on a conscious level too.

    There is a vast amount of systems in place today. Each system is set into place for the sole-purpose of controlling people, while creating the illusion of freedom. I will write about every one of these systems. Consequently, I am going to put them into a series of posts. This is one of the many within this series, so stay tuned for more information.

    ANSWER to above image mistake: the image reads "A BIRD IN THE THE BUSH". Hence there are two "THE" words.
