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 Two: Media/ Secret Agenda

    In article “What Exactly Is Free Will? Part One” I mentioned how sight and sound are the fundamental key senses most people transmit with in their habitual life and explained how the media uses these two senses in order to control people. If you have not taken the time and opportunity to introduce yourself to the post “What Exactly Is Free Will? Part One”, I highly recommend you do. This article is a continuation of a series beginning with that one.

    More on Media Programing

    No matter where the source of media is coming from (television, newspapers, internet news, radio) it is designed to control the general population in a variety of ways. I touched on television and radio in the first post. Newspapers and internet news are the same concept being viewed using different tools. Within news that you read, the words used to embark upon the subject matter at hand, will have a direct negative effect the mind. The easiest way to see what I mean is to use an example like yahoo news (please click on the link). Read an article within the news post and just notice as you read the words of the posted article how many words are ‘negative’ (from your point of view). If you allow yourself the feeding of negative information continuously, then the mind will start to adopt that negativity through a gradual manipulation and habitual routine.

    The most common and most illusionary form of media exposure, is pulling the mind into thinking one thing about what is happening, when in actuality the events taking place have nothing to do with what the mind produces. Through manipulation it programs the mind to thinking in a very fixed way. In this way, there is no reason to question anything about what you are seeing or hearing.

    Conscious People Question
    Questions open the mind up to new answers and solutions to problems. Questions change the course of events through imagining the best possible outcome. The media is set-up in such a way to eliminate questions and support the answers already given, as a robot would question nothing, only perform the task programmed to receive. This is possible through repetition and reoccurring through sight and sound.

    When you continuously hear “the war on terrorism”…“weapons of mass destruction” or “the war on Iraq” along with seeing those words being read on the screen endlessly, then the mind will use those answers as the program to receive. If people could only stop the broken record from playing the false answers in their surroundings, in their minds, and throughout the world of control, then the mind would start to ask questions again like, “If there truly are weapons of mass destruction, then why have we not found them?” and “Why do we need a war to solve ‘terrorism’?”

    I do not know anyone who actually agrees that war is the solution to this ‘problem’ or have truly ever been the best possible solution to ANY ‘problem’. Deep down under the program of the conditioned thoughts and restricted/ limited ways, there is a wisdom that asks an obvious question: “Why is it when I go out and kill someone instructed by the government I get served with an honorary and rewards, but when I go out and kill someone in any other manner I get served with a life sentence?”. Killing is never the answer, but if you are out there killing people during war, I would imagine myself to be asking questions of this nature.

    American Law of Death
    Here in America it is the law, that if I do not join a war if asked to serve my country, I will goto prison and given a hefty penalty/ fine. In fact, there happens to be a government document that every male must sign after each male turns 18 to establish this and it is the law you must sign this piece of paper. If you do not sign this piece of paper, the government ‘has the right’ to prosecute you and if there is a war draft at the time, they have a right under law to give you the death penalty no questions asked. They can come to your door and execute you. If you go outside the country, no matter where you go they have the right under American law to extradite you.

    Most people even in America do not even know this is the law throughout every state. All it takes is a little research, but I guess you have to have a reason to find it because as I mentioned, something like this is not going to be on the news. They want people to have a sense of freedom. I researched it because I did not sign their ‘controlled’ document when I turned 18 and I was curious what the laws were about it. I hope I can inspire others to do the same. All it would take is for about one out of ten males to refuse to sign that paper and the government would have an epic on their hands. "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing...."~Edmund Burke. It makes you wonder why such laws exist and who controls what laws that people write because in the scheme of things, only small amounts of people control the world. The rest of the people who help control are not in the loop of what they are doing. In the same way, that the police force is not in the loop of knowledge that the FBI or the CIA are and likewise the FBI is not in the circle of knowledge that the CIA possesses.

    Understanding the Ego
    Another way media grabs the attention of the mind through manipulation, is stating news that is egotistically related and nothing of valid significance. I wrote a whole series of seven parts called “Two Worlds” that covers the topic of the ego and if you have not taken the chance to read the series, I extremely wholeheartedly encourage everybody to. It will help with the media problems mentioned.

    Cause the Problem & Offer the Solution
    The media only addresses problems that give the secret agenda the way to control the world. For example, very soon, a tool to control people through microchips hooked to a global computer will be set into place and introduced to the public. Yet the only way for people to accept this is to make them think it is for something else. This is where the media comes in and starts reporting and addressing the problem of missing children. You will hear all kinds of stories about missing child and how missing child have been found dead. This problem will go on until surveys suggest that people are demanding a solution. This is the point where they have the opportunity to introduce their small microchips, which will be imbedded under the skin and people will be told about how these microchips are linked to a GPS system where they can find your child anywhere in the world if they go missing.

    This is what is happening all the time, there is always a secret agenda behind the news, and that secret agenda is to control the world. The polls or surveys that you take are only there to determine if the next idea is ready to allow introducing or if people need another dose of conditioning. The people asking the questions do not know what the use of the questions are for; they are just doing their job. There is a predetermined plan behind everything. When you think you a choosing, your choice does not matter because the ultimate plan is set-up to have you choose the secret agenda, no matter what choice you choose. There may not be a choice about this, but there is always a choice to be aware or ignorant of the plan.

    Secret Society
    It makes you wonder how these people get into the place of empowerment. I mean there are over 6 billion people on earth at this time and nobody who runs for president does anything significance with that power. The only two presidents that could have succeeded with worthwhile things and did make an effort, were Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. Yet they have one other thing in common too, ‘someone’ assassinated both of them. A secret society called the Skull and Bones preordains the people who are empowered. Here is a list of known Skull and Bones members of this secret society and this video explains what this secret society does and how members enter.

    I will leave you to explore in that today, but there is vast information about this secret agenda to control the world that I have found in my research, it is shocking. Therefore, keep an eye open for my next post.
