I have a habit of using my status updates as a diary. I find that putting my thoughts out for the public without the possibility of editing them after the fact is a marvelous way of keeping myself honest.
It’s odd that I happened to be inspired to document the last 6 months of status updates today. Exactly 6 months and one day ago it was my birthday. It proves to be an interesting document of my spiritual discoveries over the past while.
Also, I noticed that I had started doing professional psychic readings publicly last November. Odd, seems like only yesterday…
Anyhow, hopefully you’ll find some of this of use. Please note that none of these entries is a quote of any other writer, just my own musings.
The modern tendency to tack on the word “science” to make your philosophy seem more trendy seems awfully deceptive. Basically you’re asking for blind faith in exchange for the promise that someone smart somewhere agrees with you.

Putting thoughts of wisdom in your status is a way of attempting to teach yourself the lesson you are sharing. For instance: I wish I was more humble (it would make me a better listener) so I posted the above to avoid seeing my status updates as a way of seeming impressive.

Stop talking and just say something.

I think there’s some confusion about prayer. You don’t need to ask for help, and certainly shouldn’t bother begging. God and the angels have been asking YOU if they can help every day already. So when you pray, do so as if you are giving permission and getting out of their way so the good work can be done. This is what is at the heart of free will.

Affirmations do nothing if you haven’t cleaned up your mind, body and soul first. Otherwise you’re just planting seeds in salted soil.

Karma is not paid through suffering, but through kindness. Keep this in mind so that penitence isn’t perverted into self-punishment… they’re not supposed to be the same thing at all.

Remember: if someone is positive about their philosophy, they are probably actively ignoring something important.

The enemy of sanity is certainty.

“Being positive” is nothing if you are not also building a compassionate heart.

You can’t evolve and look cool doing it. “Ooh, check out that guy acting with compassion and gratitude! Party on you hardcore badass!”

I’m not anti-authority at all. Let’s be clear about that. I just don’t think that authority actually exists.

If you have a clear idea of what God is, you’ve already reduced the entire concept of the being into something far more trivial than is likely to be true. God must be infinite, and considering your brain is NOT infinite, this means that by definition God is completely beyond your ability to rationally comprehend.
There is only one solution: abandon logic and reason, and accept the irrational. This is the first step to actually finding God.
I appreciate the irony that I’ve drawn this conclusion using logic and reason…

I’m coming to understand that energy needs to be two-way always and without exception, and that there is no virtue in giving it all away.

A person who never questions their own beliefs is wilfully blind.

The main challenge I always face with status updates is to convey something meaningful while avoiding pandering to the reader for attention. I’m way too analytical sometimes…

I think we refuse godhood because we would lose the plaesures of catering to our weaknesses.

You can’t refuse to listen and demand knowledge at the same time.

Always suspect reality.

Confronting the cost of enlightenment: the dissolution of a sense of identity. People shouldn’t be so flippant about Ego death. If done for real, it’s terrifying… and terrific.

Beware of insights that are easy to adopt.

A truth to life, to the reason we’re here, is becoming clear in my mind. With clarity comes certainty which, considering how often I’ve been colossally wrong in the past, is a frightening prospect.

This year I’m learning about happiness as a path to compassion… Which I’m pretty sure is a concept I just made up but whatever.

My phone auto-corrects “reason” to “nonsense”. Wisdom.

It just occurred to me: with patience and intent, ascension is inevitable.

I just ran through 3/4 of my battery using Memedroid. In other news, apparently I’m 14 years old or something…

Insert flowery faux- irony that prompts you to comment, if only to claim bragging rights that this status update has something to do with you.

Hello. This is me updating my status. I have nothing interesting to say. Thanks.

Why aren’t people asking “why” anymore?

It occurs to me that I’ve been trying to do everything, which means I’ve done nothing… Hmm… Well now I know. Time to set some priorities.

The “Family Channel” is on at the family get together and… When did boys start wearing so much makeup?

Apparently I am not a circus act, nor do I traffic in them. Shame it took me this long to figure out something so obvious.

I am doing everything in my power to resist calling someone out on their moronic behavior on Facebook right now… come on Caleb, evolve… or just assume they’re trolling and not just horribly idiotic…

So, only a few weeks to the end of the world! I know some people think that it’s going to be a gradual shift in consciousness, and others a collision with Planet X that will shatter the Earth… Personally I’m hoping for something that involves buckets of ice cream raining from the sky. Best. Apocalypse. Ever.

One of the best parts about turning 37 is that I’m old enough to notice how awesome life is, and old enough to value how much love there is in my life, and young enough to get out there and enjoy it.
