If you haven’t experienced any near misses, you may have at least heard or read about them. When people describe their near misses, they say things such as “The bullet missed my heart by just a few inches,” or “I was only a few feet away fromrepparttar car that crashed intorepparttar 122309 crowd,” or “Had I not turned around, I would have been killed.” Are these misses luck, coincidence, or some power at work? I think you knowrepparttar 122310 answer.

And how aboutrepparttar 122311 meeting you forgot to attend. As long asrepparttar 122312 meeting went well, you probably would not think much of it. But what if a fire engulfedrepparttar 122313 building whererepparttar 122314 meeting took place and many people were hurt or killed? Chances are that you would realize you would have been in that fire too, and that forgettingrepparttar 122315 meeting probably saved your life. How do you think it happened that you forgot?

What about those random events we call luck or coincidence? Ifrepparttar 122316 so-called lucky break or coincidence involves meeting someone who gives yourepparttar 122317 break, then you should know that your guide andrepparttar 122318 other person’s guide may have worked hard to getrepparttar 122319 two of you together. Our guides have a responsibility to remind us of certain things or help bring about certain events that would not have happened without their assistance.

Remember, they haverepparttar 122320 blueprint of your life in their possession, and they are constantly checking to make sure nothing is missed.

How about that sudden illness that prevented you from attendingrepparttar 122321 party ofrepparttar 122322 year? Yes,repparttar 122323 one you were so disappointed to miss. Have you considered that something disastrous might have happened to you had you gone to that party? What doesrepparttar 122324 inconvenience and discomfort of minor illness matter when something so much more important is at stake?

This example shows that we can be helped and protected by things which are generally not considered to be good, such as illness. And it shows that there may be some truth torepparttar 122325 adage “Every disappointment is a blessing.” Guess who may have contributed to this blessing in disguise? You guessed right. Your guide will do whatever is necessary to protect you from negative experiences you don’t need to attain your goal in this incarnation.

Perhaps you had a grandfather like Mr. Rich, who discoveredrepparttar 122326 artificial gene that cured many diseases, became wealthy, and left a fortune to your dad and subsequently to you. Do you know who guided Mr. Rich throughrepparttar 122327 discovery process? This illustration shows that we benefit not only fromrepparttar 122328 direct assistance of our own guide but also from other people’s guides, at least indirectly. But let’s not lose sight ofrepparttar 122329 primary goal:repparttar 122330 cure of disease.

Grandpa Rich may have been a renowned scientist or medical doctor here on earth in another life and onrepparttar 122331 other side, and may have made this discovery available on earth withrepparttar 122332 help of many scientists and other cosmic forces fromrepparttar 122333 other side. To accomplish this, he was probably reminded ofrepparttar 122334 processes, directed, and guided by forces fromrepparttar 122335 other side. And since nothing comes fromrepparttar 122336 other side without passing by our guide, there is no doubt that Grandpa Rich’s guide played a major role in this case.

Context-Free Living ... Living without boundaries!

Written by Edward B. Toupin

I know by now that you've heardrepparttar terms "Debt-Free Living", "Disease-Free Living", or an overabundance of other such coined terms for various marketing ploys to sell products and services. However, I'm not here to sell you anything, as what I'm offering, you already have! You just don't know it yet!

--- Context-Free ---

A "context" is a circumstance, point of reference, or a situation by which a particular view is aligned and a unique meaning is derived. Our personal contexts are those rules, belief systems, and cognitive maps that we've developed over our lives that provide us with a basis for making decisions, passing judgment, applying bias, filtering incoming information, and learning new ideas.

Immediately, it becomes apparent that living a "context-free" life is impossible. If we even attempted to do so, we would become mental vegetables! Information and sensory information would simply flow in and flop onrepparttar 122308 floors of our minds.

But, living with an overly complex contextual point of reference can have a similar affect. In such a case, information and sensory information are processed torepparttar 122309 point of non-existence and we neither move forward or backward in our lives and learning. Instead, all data is "mashed" and "sliced" to fit neatly withinrepparttar 122310 knowledge we already have simply to ensure a "safety context".

With complex contexts, regardless of how absurd or inaccurate our context is,repparttar 122311 mind will devise any justification even if it uses a basis of other absurd or inaccurate information. It is our way to ensure that our "comfort zones" go unaffected.

--- Your Contextual References ---

We all have some point of reference that we use to analyze and store information that comes in through our physical senses and psi channels. These contexts come from parental voices, authority figures, experiences, trauma, and success. As we move through life,repparttar 122312 context is usually altered to accept new information and understand how it is to be processed and managed.

However, many people's complex contextual references block and isolaterepparttar 122313 internal mind torepparttar 122314 point of stifling and smotheringrepparttar 122315 mental processes. The mind can then only reprocessrepparttar 122316 same information it has done so inrepparttar 122317 past. Inrepparttar 122318 end, you deriverepparttar 122319 same answers torepparttar 122320 same problems and end up back atrepparttar 122321 point you started.

--- Simplifying Your Context ---

Onrepparttar 122322 extreme, over time, rules beget rules until, eventually, we have a complex data filtration system that kicks out anything that remote resembles some idea or information not completely in-line with our systems of belief. The human mind tends to develop such complexity to answer questions for which it is unsure. It creates a web of cross-connected information to prove that our lives and beliefs are justified.

This type of thought process leads to a stifling existence, little creativity, and a biased view of life as a whole. Inrepparttar 122323 end, we end up with self-composed theories about how things are and should be and are unwilling to accept anything else. Eventually we can become embittered, angry, frustrated, envious, and prejudiced.

The most effective, yet difficult, way to manage such a situation is to simplify and eliminate those rules and beliefs that have no basis in your life. Why do you hate? Why do you feel a certain way about people or situations? That's a difficult way to approachrepparttar 122324 solution since we will always develop an answer based on our preconceived notions and complex rules of thought. Such preconceived notions of people and situations are merely ideas to protect our imbalanced mode of thought. This is where we need to start!
