Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!
Awakened Life Now is intended to be a place of inspiration and empowerment, a place that reminds us all of the greatness inherent in every one of us.
I want to take just a moment here to share with you why I’ve felt inspired to start this blog, and what my overall vision and intention for it is.
I’m a writer, and have been for some time now. Primarily my focus has been and continues to be screenwriting. I first started writing when I was about sixteen or seventeen, but I had never really seen myself as a writer until I’d moved from Germany to the United States back in 2004. That’s when, one thing leading to another, I started what ultimately grew into a popular script based virtual series. A virtual series is a series published in written form on the internet that releases episodes on a regular (usually weekly) basis, very much like a television series.
Ever since I’ve also written several pilots and feature films, and right now I’m getting those scripts out there in order to find an agent, sell a script and/or get a job as a writer in either film or television.
But for some time now I’ve been having this feeling that there’s also something else that I’ve been wanting to do, something that I feel as much drawn to as I do to filmmaking. It can be tricky to articulate these things, but the best way I can describe it is that it’s a desire to share what I’ve come to find are some universal principles that, if applied in your life, will have a profound impact.
I think we can all agree that there is something that we, humanity as a whole, have not quite understood about life. Because had we understood it, the world would not be in the condition that it’s in right now. So there must be something that humans have misunderstood, and if they understood it, if they really got it, it would change the entire world.
Well, I believe this something relates as much to humanity as a whole as it does to every single one of us as individuals. It’s only once we transform ourselves that we transform the world. Gandhi has been quoted as saying, “be the change you want to see in the world.” And that’s, in a nutshell, what this is about.
Awakened Life Now is a blog about change.
It’s the change that comes from awakening to our true nature.
It’s the change that positively affects all parts of our life and transforms them into areas of love, joy, beauty, well-being, and expansion.
If I had to sum it up, I would say the core message behind all of it is this:
- You are a Limitless Being, infinitely more powerful than you may have realized. And whatever your dream is, it’s your indicator of how you can make a difference in the world. The life of your dreams is the life you were meant to live.
I’d like you to really take in those words above. Reread them, memorize them. Heck, you could even print them out and put them somewhere where you’ll always see them. Because those words represent the truth about you, your life, and your very purpose for being here.
Too often we’ve talked ourselves into believing that a dream is like some lofty idea of what we wish our lives would be like. We think that going after our dream will be hard, painful, and ultimately doomed to failure. So instead we’ve resigned ourselves to just “trying to make it.” And to rationalize it, we buy into limiting beliefs that justify why we can’t go after our dream, why it’s impossible, and why things are as they are.
Well, I’m here to tell you, to remind you: none of that is true! The life of your dreams is the life you were meant to live!
But here’s the thing, you’re also an Unlimited Being, infinitely more powerful than you may have realized, remember? So that means it’s up to you. In order to live the life of your dreams, you first have to make the decision that you will. In fact, you’re so powerful that whatever you think, say, and believe, immediately manifests as your experience of life.
Wow, there’s another thing I’d like you to really take in:
- Whatever you think, say, and believe, manifests as your experience of life.
In other words, there is no outside power or force that has any influence or control over you, unless — and here is the catch – you believe there is.
So it’s really all about what you believe. And you can put that to a test right now. What do you believe about what you’ve read here so far? Does any of it resonate with you? Does it make sense? Do you agree? Do you disagree? Pay close attention to what comes up, and then ask yourself, is what I’m believing right now helping me? Is what I believe empowering me?
If the answers to those questions are, yes, then don’t change anything about what you believe. You see, I’m not here to try and convince you of anything. Much rather would I like for you to simply look within, examine your own consciousness, examine your life, find out what’s true for you. My hope and prayer would be that you simply remember about yourself what, at the deepest level of your awareness, you already know. And then be the living embodiment of that — be the wonderful Being that you came here to be, follow your passions, go after your dreams, and freely share all of your gifts and talents. That’s the greatest gift you can give to the world.
And if you find a belief that does not empower you, a belief that limits you, here’s some more good news: you can change your beliefs at any time. You can let go of any and all limiting beliefs, and the first step to letting them go is to simply be aware of them.
My desire is for this blog to be both inspirational as well as practical. So in future articles I will be giving you some very practical tips for what actions you can take in your life on a day to day basis in order to create the change you want to see.
But for now, let me finish with this: it’s the beginning of a brand new year, and what a wonderful time to embrace the countless opportunities that life has to offer. So why not make a decision right now that this will be your year. Let 2012 be the year where you take your life to the next level, let it be the year in which you release all the brakes and empower yourself to have all the love, joy, happiness, success, prosperity, health, well-being and fulfilling relationships that you’ve always wanted.
Let 2012 be your year!
Let it be your best year yet!
Peace and blessings!
