Ten Simple Spiritual Tools

From "Transcending The Levels of Consciousness," by Dr. David R.
Hawkins, pp 333-334."

1. Be kind to everything and everyone, including oneself, all the
time, with no exception.

2. Revere all of life in all of its expressions, no matter what, even
if one does not understand it.

3. Presume no actual reliable knowledge of anything at all. Ask God to
reveal its meaning.

4. Intend to see the hidden beauty of all that exists - it then reveals

to ignorance. Socrates said that all men can choose only what they
believe to be good.

positionalities and mental/emotional arguments or gain.

thereby be willing to be of selfless service to life in all of its

and surrender. True spiritual reality is actually a way of being in the

truth of all teachers, teachings, spiritual groups, and literature with
which one intends to be aligned or a student.

What's the best thing you could be working on, and why aren't you?


"In his famous essay You and Your Research (which I recommend to anyone ambitious, no matter what they're working on), Richard Hamming suggests that you ask yourself three questions:

"What are the most important problems in your field?

"Are you working on one of them?

"Why not?

"Hamming was at Bell Labs when he started asking such questions. In principle anyone there ought to have been able to work on the most important problems in their field. Perhaps not everyone can make an equally dramatic mark on the world; I don't know; but whatever your capacities, there are projects that stretch them. So Hamming's exercise can be generalized to:

"What's the best thing you could be working on, and why aren't you?"

Shut Up, A Love Poem

Shut up.

Nobody cares what you think.
They're not interested.

Stop wondering what they think.
They're not thinking of you.

Nobody wants to know your name.
They're only remembering it for practice.

Imagine the earth as a big blue ball
And imagine that you're gone.

Now what's the use of the whole world
Without you there? Who cares?

Nobody. And that's my point.
Shut up. We're not interested. Yes - you.

Disconfirm all your degrees of difference.
Nobody gives a damn how you're unique.

They just want value and novelty from you.
Grow up and get on with your own truth.

I mean, shut up. Shut up and live.
Stop your gabbling and live loud and true.

Be the self that you and only you
Can truly and honestly and completely be.

Be you.
