Life is a Series of Patterns
Have you ever heard that history repeats itself? Have you ever noticed patterns in nature? Or ever noticed the same patterns pop up in your life?
If so, you are not alone. It happens to everyone because life is a series of patterns.
“Mathematics is the beautiful language of the universe.”
Whether you are looking at the stars, or the patterns on a leopard, everything in nature has a pattern. The season itself follows the same pattern, year after year. The Fibonacci sequence appears in many places in nature from flowers to shells to the vegetables we eat.
Everything in life has patterns, which roots to mathematics. Even astrologers say that there are patterns in the sky that repeat itself.
Ironically, some astrologers found that around 2016 we were entering the same star alignment as World War II. Although history did not repeat itself entirely, similar themes were present. This is part of the reason why history repeats itself.
It's not necessarily a literal interpretation, but more of metaphors. Throughout history wars, class-ism, colonialism, poverty cycles, population-sweeping plagues and social movements are seen continuously through history. Some claim history doesn't repeat, but rhymes. Regardless, similar situations surface from the past.
It's like a Hollywood movie, same story different actors. When understanding this from a metaphorical standpoint, one begins to see history repeat itself.
“When you are paying attention to your thoughts, words, actions, feelings, food habits, reactions, decisions, secrets, patterns, and physique, you start tuning in consciously.”
THE HIGHER MIND IS
THE LOWER MIND IS
THE KEY TO LIFE IS BALANCING BOTH MINDS
The goal is to calm the lower mind, and began to tap into the higher mind to receive answers and guidance. If people can open the lower mind, but allow leadership from the higher mind, many profound changes can occur in life. Imbalances occur because people tend to live primarily in the higher or lower mind.
Artists continuously tapped into their creative power sometimes cannot navigate on planet earth. Those continuously living in their lower mind will never ascend because of fear or believing in that there is nothing better out there for them.
One example is say someone is a sugar addict or a smoker. The body feels like crap long term and eventually the higher mind is going to start “crying” and request that the body start eating healthier or stop smoking. Using logic, one may start to research support groups, cessation products or a health coach.
A person who experiences childhood trauma may feel permanently lost or damaged enough to where they unworthy of love and acceptance. These people tend to live in the past and need to focus on changing the present and connecting to a higher source for help and healing. The higher mind can lead them out of mental anguish and despair, but it takes a while to retrain the brain and rewire the neurons to get out of negative thinking patterns.
What are your thoughts on the higher vs. the lower mind?
Words cannot describe the feelings and aura of Nice. At sunset, the ocean is like a canvas painting. The old town is as beautiful as a rose garden in the summer. And the food recipes are as ancient as Rome itself.
I made this the old traditional way of stirring vegetables in a pot to simmer. In modern times, food bloggers create beautiful circular arrangements of squash and zucchini for baking, but the easier and less time consuming way is to make it like they did in the 1700's.
Cooking time: 20-30 minutes
2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small onion, chopped (used purple)
2 peppers, chopped (any color, I did one red + one green)
1 very small eggplant, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp fresh oregano
2 sprigs of thyme
salt+pepper to taste
In a pot, cook the onion + garlic in olive oil for several minutes. Add the eggplant and peppers and cook + stir for several minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until edible and fragrant. Continue to stir so the vegetables do not stick on the bottom of the pot.
Enjoy as a side dish or part of the main course.

Throughout my 34 years on this globe, I've long known that the way to changing the world is through the use of healing yourself. My journey of this began in Australia at 20 and then in India at 22, which is why I wrote Finding Om.
So many people on this planet have issues, but do not want to confront them. Some of it is cultural as hiring a psychologist is shameful. No matter what generation you come from, all of us have experienced trauma in some form or another. Some trauma roots from world wars, others from abuse from drug-induced hippies, and now today, from mass violence that plagues societies.
We are rarely just ever okay. Those who live in a bubble are probably fine, but those who have endured hardships, abuse, divorce, violence and other forms of trauma need healing. But only you can heal you self.
The first step is admitting you have a problem, and the second is putting action to actually healing yourself. Healing doesn't happen overnight. Like everything in life, it is a journey of rediscovering yourself and loving yourself. Discover videos on how to heal ourselves on my YouTube Channel.
