From Change to Changelessness

February 22nd, 2015 by Hale Dwoskin
Hale Dwoskin, Sedona Method

Sedona in the Snow

“We live in a world that appears to be constantly changing. We get so caught up in all the external changes that we miss the changeless background on or in which all appears. We construct our world based on the change-full and wonder why we feel so out of control and dissatisfied. As we discover that changeless background we gain the strength to navigate the natural cycles and ups and downs of life.

Tip: Allow yourself to welcome what is as best you can, moment to moment, and allow things to change as they do opposed to always feeling like you need to direct the show. The more you let go of wanting to hold onto what is pleasurable and wanting to change what is painful or distasteful to you the more you will experience the joy an peace that is available to us each and every moment in life.

As you let go of wanting to direct the show it will start to surprise and delight you in ways you could not have possibly imagined based on past experience. And when things don’t go the way you want you will find that instead of getting stuck you handle challenges better. You will sail through life like a bird with the air beneath its wings.”

The above text is an excerpt from the Sedona Method Release-A-Day program. Please comment below on how this is supporting you and the benefits you are getting from Release-A-Day.

I have crafted this program from new recordings from me, excerpts from recent retreats and parts of some of our most powerful audio programs. Each day is brand new so let’s celebrate the day with peace, joy and a unique release that will help you to have, be and do what you choose and to be the All.

The Way to Happiness

Lester Levenson

“Non-attachment is the way to happiness. Disown all things from your heart while taking care of them. Consider them borrowed for use only. Use them with gratitude.”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think, Book 3 of 5, Session 2

When we feel attached we are bound to the object of our attachment and it becomes the source of pain and unhappiness. The more you set yourself and everyone and everything free to simply be as it is the more you experience that joy that needs no reason to be.

All life is a gift from the One. Treat it as a gift as opposed to an entitlement and you will find your heart and life overflowing with joy and real abundance.

Enjoy,

Love,

What Are You Interested In?

January 1st, 2015 by Hale Dwoskin

Lester Levenson“Now, the most important thing in quieting the mind is interest. When you are very interested in something, you’ll override all other thoughts. Likewise, if, with intense interest, you want to know, “What am I? What is this world? What is my relationship to it?” If there’s a real burning desire to get the answer, then all other thoughts drop away, and the mind becomes extremely concentrated. Then the answer shows itself. It comes from within. The answer is there all the time. The quieting of the thoughts allows us to see it, to see the answer that was there all the time, in the realm of knowingness, in the Self…”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think, Book 2 of 5, Session 4

At this time of year we are often interested in making New Year’s resolutions in order to have a more of what we are most interested in this year.

What are you interested in? Allow yourself to explore your interests and do your best to be a little more interested in that which is real and changeless than you are in getting the next thing in life or avoiding what appears to be painful. The more you reinforce your interest in the truth of who or what you are the quicker the direct experience of the truth of what you are presents itself to itself.

To do anything effectively it requires concentration. Wherever you are succeeding in life it is due, at least in part, to your ability to concentrate on the goal. Allow yourself as best you can to spend a little more time every day concentrating on the goal of Absolute Freedom and Unbounded Joy. The more you make that your priority the more you will succeed in achieving the Ultimate Goal.

Make this the year to be more interested in Total Freedom!

Happy New Year!

Enjoy,

Love,

Is There a World and Truth?

December 29th, 2014 by Hale Dwoskin
Lester Levenson

Lester Levenson

“What is the difference between the divine and the worldly, the spiritual and the material? Is there a difference? Is there a difference between being spiritual and being in the world? There is a tendency for us to separate the two. That is a gross error. There is no difference between the spiritual and the material when we look at it from the viewpoint of truth…”

–         Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think Book 4 of 5, Session 4

The mind is an instrument of separation. It is constantly separating us from our true nature by having us look outside of ourselves for the answer. We are whatever we are seeking from the world.

We also believe that the world is separate from us – separate from our true nature and somehow and hindrance to experience the Truth. As long as we believe this we make it so. You can find out from your own direct experience that the world is appearing in or on you and is no way separate from that which you are.

Right now, allow yourself to explore this question: “Can I actually find where the world ends and I begin or where I end and the world begins?” If you ponder this deeply you will experience directly the unity of all that is.

Enjoy!

Love,

Hale Dwoskin

Beyond Enjoyment to Inner Joy

December 26th, 2014 by Hale Dwoskin
Lester Levenson

Lester Levenson

“When you find more joy within yourself than in anything else, then you’re really moving in the right direction. If you find any joy in life, you’re in the wrong direction. Enjoying anything is wrong. Seek joy within. Be joy. There’s nothing needed to enjoy if you are all-joyous. If we are enjoying anything, we are in duality. If I enjoy this, there’s “I” and “this.” If there’s God (Self) alone, there can’t be any “I” and “this.” The basic truth is that you are all joy. Enjoying something will impose an extreme limitation upon your natural state of all-joy. To enjoy something, you’re recognizing something other than you. So, I repeat, we should never enjoy anything. Seek joy only within, and then the natural state of infinite joy is discovered…”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 5 of 5, Session 7

Lester is not saying you should never enjoy anything. He is saying that in order to discover the true source of joy allow yourself bring joy to whatever you experience in life rather than want to or believe that you get joy from it.

Allow yourself to recognize that whatever appears to bring you joy is only giving you a very tiny sample of the infinite light and joy that you are. Would you rather have tiny samples or would you rather have the whole meal? If you would prefer the whole meal, then learn to discover the joy that is already and always right within you before, during and after every external experience.

Every time you let go you are uncovering the joy within you. That is why if feels so great to release.

You can also explore this by asking yourself this simple question whenever you appear to be getting joy from outside of yourself: “Is this the source of my joy or is this joy I am experiencing coming from within me?” Explore this in action as you go through your life and you will quickly discover the ever new joy that you are.

Enjoy!

Love,

Christmas Message from Lester Levenson

December 22nd, 2014 by Hale Dwoskin
Lester Levenson

Lester Levenson

The following is an excerpt from Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 1 of 5.  This talk was taken from Session 7 Book 1. This timeless message is just as appropriate now as it was when these words were spoken in the early 1960’s.

In Lester’s message he emphasized the importance of having a feeling of “givingness” towards everyone. The givingness he is speaking about comes from the direct realization that whenever we are giving we are giving only to ourselves. All apparent others are merely projections in or on the one Christ Consciousness or Field of Being that we are.

A Glimpse Into Freedom

December 18th, 2014 by Hale Dwoskin
Lester Levenson

Lester Levenson

“Well, again, you do not give up your body. Your happiness gets more intense the more you move toward total freedom, until it reaches a point where you just can’t contain it anymore. Then you resolve it into a very beautiful peace that is never, ever again disturbed. And that peace is really far more delicious than the intense joy was. Then, when you choose to be active in the world, you’ll never, ever lose that background peace; you will feel it all the time. And you are free to do anything in the world: you can act angry or scared, be poor or rich. You can do anything you want, but you do not disappear.”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 5 of 5, Session 5

This is just a very small glimpse of what we have to look forward to as we let go and surrender to that truth we are. The more you let go the more this becomes your living experience.

Also, many of us hold ourselves back from fully letting go into that which we are because we are afraid that we will disappear. The exact opposite is true. What you are not, never was, so you do see through that. That which you are simply shines through washing away all your beliefs and suffering leaving its wake profound peace and equanimity. Instead of identifying with the little body/mind you identify with all that is and you know that you are even more than that!

So allow yourself to open to the truth of what you are that is already looking through those eyes yet needs no eyes to see – That which gives life to “your” life yet is beyond any particular form including the one that bears “your” name.

Enjoy!

Love,

Hale Dwoskin
