Secret Shade

Secret Shade – All Spirit, No Fluff. We spend an hour with Matt from Indonesia. He shares with us how he lives his life on purpose to create more freedom from societal norms.

Matt says:
“I’m trying to craft the sort of lifestyle that involves freedom of many kinds – financial, geographical, psychological etc.”

He mentions the pain of a 5 day work week. And….he did something about it.

We talk about:
Pain is inevitable, suffering optional
Float tanks
Meditation
Spiritual work using non-mainstream methods
Living on purpose
Taking risks/going with the flow

On duality and embracing suffering:
Matt reminds us we’re stardust. And stardust is the result of a violent, cosmic dying process. It’s OK to experience pain. It’s part of life.

What does it mean to be truly selfish? How does it make the world a better place?
Why does organized religion teach it as an evil? What is self murder?

The importance of understanding the difference between I and We. Why I and self puts you in the mirror looking at the place where all change starts, with you.

If more of us would get off our collective asses and stop depending on others to change the world, this would be a much better place to live.

chalice

Definition:
Chalice – Vessel or cup. Container for liquid.

Famous example:
Holy Grail – Tradition says Jesus used the cup at the Last Supper to institute Mass. Other stories claim that Joseph of Arimathea used the cup to collect and store the blood of Christ at the Crucifixion.

What does a cup do?
What is it’s purpose?
What’s most important? Cup or contents?
Half empty, half full? Does it quench my thirst?

Drink from your own chalice analogy:
Drink from your own cup
Draw from your own wisdom
Dip your bucket into your own well
You are the source of your abundance
You are the source of your wisdom

And so it is with money and borrowing it:
Stop looking outside yourself for your abundance

Are you pissed The Pope is Catholic?

Wal Mart dropping her?
What about Asian sweat shops?

Can you spend words?
What can they buy?
What is their value?
Do they put bread on your table?

If you’re a hater you hate self.
If you’re a lover you love self.

If you’re a victim you prey on yourself.
If you’re a predator you victimize yourself.

Don’t Take Anything Personally
“Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”
― Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

Ever heard these from your parents, for example?
“You don’t appreciate anything. We’ve sacrificed so much for you. We work hard to send you to college.”

As if you asked to be brought into this world. As if you asked them to work two jobs and pay your way through school. Don’t let them guilt trip you. They either aren’t aware or are denying why they’re paying your way through college in the first place.

Be appreciative, yes, but not eternally indebted to them for what they’ve done. They do it by choice.
More importantly, don’t guilt trip yourself for having been on the receiving end of anyone’s money, charity, time, or attention. This creates endless suffering in the world.

Poverty is NOT spiritual. Neither is wealth. Neither one will get you closer to God.

How much time do you spend thinking about money? More than you’re probably aware. Try to go a day without saying any words about money.

The thoughts you think about money are the thoughts you think about energy, life, and God. You are literally shaping your universe by how you think.

Think poor? Live poor. Think abundant? Live abundant.
