In the next exciting episode of THE FULLY ENGAGED LIFE, that will be released on Monday, September 26th, I present the FULLY ENGAGED LIFE CHALLENGE!

Are you courageous enough to accept this challenge!? Do you have the inner strength to follow through? We’ll find out. Here’s all the details…

This is a 15 day challenge. I challenge every one of you to set aside 15 minutes every day for 15 days during which time you get up, go outdoors, and walk for 15 minutes in nature.

This can be your spacious yard, a peaceful park, an inviting beach, or a picturesque mountain hiking trail. But, it must be outdoors – rain or shine. The challenge includes walking in complete silence without your cell phone, earbuds, or other electronic devices. That means no texting or Facebook posting for 15 minutes – yeah, it just got really hard didn’t it?  Playing Pokemon Go is not acceptable nor is it at all compatible with this challenge. Your limits and self-control are probably already being tested aren’t they?

Here’s the practice included in this challenge: Find a safe and pleasant place outdoors near you. When you’re walking – just walk. Be with the action of walking. Remain aware of each step you take and the fact that you are simply walking. Enjoy all the sounds and scenery of nature, yet do not allow it to distract your mind from the act of walking. The key here is not allowing the mind to become distracted or attached to the surroundings, while being fully aware of them and all the serenity and beauty they provide. Stay focused on walking and do not allow the mind to wander on to stray thoughts. As you hold this awareness of the natural environment, keep your primary awareness on the act of walking itself. Don’t think about walking, don’t place any form of judgement on it, just walk. The difficulty, hence it being a challenge, is in the simplicity of it.

We’re asking you to take only one photo at the beginning of the challenge. Take a photo of the area in nature you’re going to be walking and include it in the comment section of a post for this challenge you’ll find on my Facebook Author Page (Robert D. Bessler). No selfies! Post a photo of nature, not yourself. Post your photo along with the comment – “Challenge Accepted!” and then make sure to return and let me know that you succeeded.

So, you’re probably wondering what the cause is that’s associated with this challenge. Simple, the cause is to raise awareness. Ohhhh, are you waiting for more? Sorry, that’s it. This is simply about raising your own awareness. This is a challenge of mindfulness.

You see, when we “raise awareness” of diseases, disorders, and disasters, we mindlessly attract more of that into reality. The ego loves the drama of it all, but we do pay a hefty price. Raising awareness to these things attracts them into our own reality as well as into the reality of those we’re attempting to help. Not very productive is it? People are already very aware of such things and raising awareness has yet to cure or solve a single issue for which awareness has been raised, yet we mindlessly continue with such challenges in the hope that it’ll become trendy. The reason it’s ineffective is because when we think, feel, speak, and act on behalf of such things, our vibration matches them and that attracts more of those things into our reality, and it doesn’t matter if we’re conscious of it or not. I contend that there must be a far better way to help those who are in need. A way that can eventually result in real cures and preventions without attracting more of it into anyone’s life.

We need to first raise our own awareness to higher levels. Much higher. Then, with truly raised consciousness we’ll be far more equipped and inclined to offer solutions that have actual results without vibratory repercussions. I figured if this old paradigm attracts more of what we’re raising awareness for, then why not offer a challenge to raise awareness so that we end up vibrationally attracting more raised awareness into the world!?

Please join us this Monday and let’s do our part in raising the awareness of ourselves and the world around us! Let’s do our part to give this consciousness shift the boost it deserves and set ourselves on the path of awakening. Through this we can all begin living a fully engaged life and help bring this higher sense of conscious living to everyone.

True Authenticity

Hey Everyone!

As the plague of the ever-growing ego continues to sweep the globe, I felt it to be a good time to offer some truth regarding authenticity. It’s all too common in the world today to find people stressing how authentic they are when in reality it’s just their ego justifying it’s actions through twisted logic. True authenticity is a state of being discovered through spiritual practices that take you beyond the mind and ego. It’s crucial to understand the difference between this fake, ego-driven form of authenticity and true authenticity. It’s my desire to offer you a clear example.

The ordinary mind – that of the ego-dominated, unconscious – sees authenticity as a way to strengthen itself. These people believe that authenticity is about doing whatever they want, acting however they want, and making up their own “feel-good” practices – all in the name of being authentic. They believe that they are individuals and finding their own individual path – but this form of separateness is a classic tactic of the ego.

The ego twists and justifies their poor behaviors into the false belief of them just being themselves. They rationalize that they should be able to act however they want to, regardless of how poor that behavior is toward themselves or others, in the name of being themselves. They trick themselves into believing their own misguided inverted logic so they can make up their own  false versions of what they call practices. These make believe forms of practice carry no real, lasting value at all. To the contrary, they serve only to stroke the ego and allow the person to feel good about themselves for a short period of time before reverting right back to the same, or often even worse, behavior patterns than they had previously. They confuse their opinion for truth, and they borrow the knowledge of others instead of actually engaging in real practices and attaining direct personal experience. The ordinary mind likes to confuse real authenticity for its facade of self-justification thinly disguised as authenticity.

How can you be authentic when the mind is still dominated by the ego? True authenticity cannot be attained while the mind is still ego-driven. Authenticity is being in tune with your Higher Self (essence), and remember that ego and essence cannot and do not coexist.

Look around at the current trend in the media. Celebrities, sports personalities, politicians, and religious leaders alike are always apologizing for some form of nonsense that holds no real value in the first place. Not a day goes by that I don’t read or hear about one of these “distraction representatives” apologizing for something. Sure, it’s a great way to get publicity, after all, any press is good press, isn’t that what they say? This current trend (and yes, I’m using the word trend here to indicate one more behavior of the those considered to be “trendies”) is a thing example of false authenticity. While we’re supposed to embrace the programming that it’s good to apologize, I encourage you to see how it’s actually an act of disempowerment when it’s not truthful, and clearly the act of someone who is of ordinary mind and thus is not truly authentic at all. If they were authentic, they’d have nothing to apologize for.

True authenticity is something entirely different. Let’s use this trendy example of apologizing as a way to illustrate my point. A person who relies on false authenticity will apologize because they said something or did something that was not mindfully executed or because someone complained about it or their ego found a way to be offended. Those who are willing to quickly retract their statements and apologize are not authentic. However, those who do something from a poor moral perspective and then refuse to apologize because they want to justify their actions and strengthen their sense of self-righteousness as being authentic, are also acting from ego and therefore are not authentic.

The pure mind – This term is used to describe a state of mind beyond ego. A mind that is free of ego and indeed free of itself. A better translation for this term would be “pure no-mind.” It’s only from this state of no-mind that we come in contact with our true authenticity.

Truly authentic people are clear in what they say and do and they stand behind it. Authentic people are spiritually awakened and speak of truth, not opinion or twisted perspective. This doesn’t mean that they won’t apologize if they make an honest mistake, indeed, they’ll be eager and set things straight, but they generally speak mindfully and from what they have come to experience first-hand as truth. Those living without ego will not apologize simply because someone decides they want to be offended or because it’s trendy and offers notoriety. Authentic people don’t act however they want and attempt to justify it, their words and action are mindful , consciously formulated, and based on truth. They don’t attempt to justify their actions by stating that they’ll do what they do because it’s them being who they are, they have lost their sense of self. When the ego passes away, so does your identity, then their is no self. When you go beyond the mind into the realm of essence their is only conscious awareness of truth for what is. There is no more opinion because opinions are mental formations that cannot exist without the mind. This is where true authenticity is found. If you have not entered into no-mind, gone beyond the mind, then you have yet to grasp the truth of authenticity. Authentic people understand that they must directly engage real practices from authentic systems in order to attain awakened consciousness and spiritual expansion.

The path to authenticity begins with mindfulness practices that help you to attain what’s called, “clear perception.” Once clear perception is achieved, then the truth begins to be experienced. You no longer live from a perception twisted by the ego or controlled by outside influences, you begin to see through all of the illusion. As you continue walking this path you enter into meditation that will allow you to experience the state of pure mind and then you will realize true authenticity.

The Expansion Mastery Program is designed to assist you on your own path toward true authenticity and this is why there’s absolutely no dogma associated with Expansion Mastery. Dogma is the creation of the mind and it serves the mind/ego, not the essence. Expansion Mastery is meant to guide you through real practices as you make your own unique way in the world while supplying you with authentic practices from a practical, non-dogmatic standpoint so that you can attain real results faster and easier. There’s no dogma to weigh you down so you’re able to rise to all new heights in the true manner intended by these authentic practices.Please do your best to apply this material to rise above the twisted logic of the ego and to take your stance in the world in a truly authentic way.
