Christmas begins with Christ Consciousness. It is a celebration of an advanced state of consciousness that Jesus has attained over 2000 years ago. Today this Christed Consciousness is becoming more and more available to many people, who are willing to walk the Path of their Soul and open all the inner Gifts that the True Present Moment holds and reveals.
May you have Strength and Courage to walk your Soul’s Path, to open your Inner Gifts and to Discover the Beauty, Peace, Perfection and Love, inherent in the True Present Moment in the year of 2018 and in every deepest Present Moment of NOW, since NOW is the true Reality, the seat of omnipotent GOD and the SELF Absolute Consciousness.
with love and blessings,

In non duality, in my seeing, freedom is being in the natural consciousness.
It is being your natural self which is beyond karma and beyond mind conditionings.
It is being yourself as the absolute self where only what exists in your reality is consciousness.
People seek for freedom in many different ways for example climbing a mountain, surfing a wave, seeking to experience fully the present moment and become one with nature.
In my seeing freedom is about the consciousness which is always here no matter where you are, it is always shining. It is penetrating this 3D reality and actually any reality and any dimension, so it’s neither in the 4D nor heavenly 5D as consciousness penetrates all dimensions, it is beyond even this universe or any other universes.
So true freedom is being aware of consciousness and that consciousness is Bliss and
whether having a cup of tea, or walking in a park or surfing a wave, freedom in essence is about being in the light of consciousness. It is that blissful light of consciousness which is within and fully self evident.
The mind literally can not touch it. The mind is like a distant cloud, a distant moon in the sky, so far away that it is beautiful to observe, but it is as far as the moon, so the mind can not touch it. This is why Buddha was always pointing to the moon because the moon is a symbol of liberation, the true freedom being within consciousness.
It is nothing about the external environment, it’s about the internal essence of your true Self. There is not even the external environment or internal self, because everything Is Consciousness and that consciousness is Self luminous and Self evident in every moment. It is that blissful light called Nirvana and only that can be called freedom. Abiding in the Consciousness is true natural freedom.

A researcher from the University of British Colombia has confirmed that the Buddhist teaching of a constantly changing self is accurate.
According to Buddhists, change is the only constant in the universe, which means that there is no such thing as a stable self.
Neuroscience also says that the brain and body is said to be constantly in action or progressively flowing, which proves that there isn’t any stable self.
(However in the absolute Reality, there is only One Absolute Self – Mindo O. Damalis)
Evan Thompson, a philosophy of mind professor at the University of British Columbia, says “And from a neuroscience perspective, the brain and body is constantly in flux. There’s nothing that corresponds to the sense that there’s an unchanging self.”
Neuroplasticity, a concept coined by neuroscientists, states that our brain is malleable and able to change. This means you can change your brain in many aspects, opening up your possibilities for growth.
This concept can be incredibly liberating. Why? Because you’re not defined by your thoughts or your idea of who you are. The possibilities to change yourself are endless.
“Nothing is permanent. Everything is subject to change. Being is always becoming.” – Buddha
Buddhist Monks have long said that the universe and ourselves are constantly changing. By training our mind, they say we can elevate our awareness and control.
This is also why they talk about the practice of non-attachment. If we attach ourselves to something, we are desiring for it to be stable, which directly goes against the forces of the universe.
Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron says:
“Impermanence is a principle of harmony. When we don’t struggle against it, we are in harmony with reality.”
What about consciousness?
Neuroscience has long been baffled by consciousness. They can’t explain why or how it exists.
Buddhists however define consciousness into three different areas:
-consciousness is conditioned by mental fabrications (saṅkhāra);
-consciousness and the mind-body (nāmarūpa) are interdependent; and,
-consciousness acts as a “life force” by which there is a continuity across rebirths
As Neuroscience advances, perhaps Buddhism will be proven right in regards to consciousnesses too.
