A beautiful addition to our Coming Home series from Denise, who points to the illusion of our experience, standing on a ground which is a made up mechanism of experience that doesn’t actually exist. When we see that we can come back to the logic that we have an experience through our human bodies via the Three Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness. And before that we’re pure consciousness, divine energy, pure love, aliveness, the nothingness out of which everything gets created.
Denise shares how she feels an immense gratitude at that point for Sydney Banks, for him as a person and for the love and energy of his presence and his being.
Steph shares in Part 2 of “Discovering the Three Principles and Sydney Banks” how she instantly saw the flow between the Three Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness when coming across this understanding, seeing it as a system that sits underneath every human being. Realising this felt like coming home for Steph, it was if she remembered a secret that she came to the world with but had forgotten about.
Steph shares her first experience of coming across Sydney Banks, straight away connecting with his message on a deeper level without trying to understand it with her intellect, simply feeling his words and having her own insights a few moments later.
She shares a funny anecdote of coming home to her husband after having had a 360 degree shift in her understanding of life and him thinking that she’s become part of a cult, wondering whether she was going to leave him now. She realised that unless someone hears or sees the Three Principles for themselves, they will not be able to get it, especially not intellectually.
She talks about a desire to share this understanding with loved ones and other people who might be suffering, showing that life doesn’t have to be difficult. At the same time she realises that it’s not about convincing anyone of anything, but simply gently sharing when people are ready to hear.
In our new series “Coming Home”, Steph and Kaye feel inspired to bring the message of Sydney Banks and “The Three Principles” to the people of Scotland.
To start off this series, Kaye and Steph share their experience of coming across the Three Principles and learning about Sydney Banks. Having actually never met Sydney Banks in person, Kaye shares in part 1 of this series, how she has been touched by many of the first generations teachers that knew Syd but also by other people since that who have taken the understanding and shared it with the world.
“Because on some deeper level I know that I’m okay, there’s an element of just being in that experience of overwhelm and not being overly concerned by it. I can still notice that the sun is shining and I look forward to the drive but I think that’s totally down to the fact that I know deep down I’m totally okay, it’s just overwhelm. I don’t have to be worried about it. I don’t have to dislike it or not want to be in overwhelm, it just is.” – Jacqueline Hollows
Jacqueline shares how at this point (of filming) she’s feeling really overwhelmed, thinking she had too much in her diary, hasn’t gotten enough stuff done and missing some deadlines. Whilst Jacqueline knows it’s not helpful to look in the direction of overwhelm, she couldn’t help but get seduced by it. She realised that her feeling of overwhelm had nothing to do with how many appointments she had in the dairy, noticing that some days she’s totally on top of things even though she’s busy, dealing with things just fine and then when being stuck in a head fog, things seem so much harder with all that extra thinking and noise in her head. Jacqueline shares that in those moments of overwhelm, there is no space to see anything other than the feeling of overwhelm, however yet on some other level there is also the awareness of her being okay and not needing to do anything to get out of that place.
“Your curiosity and willingness to experiment with my feeling of overwhelm, the fact that you two didn’t care at all, gave me that opportunity to see the seduction, to see the stillness, which calmed things down.”
“I don’t have less thinking but there is less of me in my thinking” – Ivana Bellini
Liliana has just recently left her contract job which naturally came to an end and she is now exploring what life is like living in the unknown and having more space in her life. She realises that her own belt of thinking used to keep her pretty tied up with thoughts in the past, taking things very personally, believing everything was about her.
“Space comes from being less of a focal point in my thoughts. I’m less in charge and I don’t have a desire to be.”
“If you start taking your first load of insecure thinking seriously and your next lot, before you know it you’re pretty snowed under with going off in the wrong direction and looking for something on the outside instead of looking inwards to see what wisdom is saying”.
Join Susan as she shares her experience of temporarily feeling insecure thinking around her job and her boyfriend. Whilst Susan felt awful during that low state of mind, she also knew this feeling would pass and rather than experiencing long spells of insecure thinking, she notices those spells don’t last so long anymore and most of the times she’s experiencing good feelings. She realises that even in those dark moments, fresh thinking is just around the corner and it can come in any moment.
“Before my understanding of the Three Principles I thought I had to fix myself in order to feel better, now I know I’ve just got a lot on my mind which is not helpful to me. Now I know the only reason why I would get into an unhelpful state again is if I have thinking that I take seriously.”
“I spent so much of my life not feeling okay, not feeling good enough, not feeling clever enough, feeling I needed something outside of myself. Now I know when I’m free from my limitations of my own thinking, I’m okay” – Anna Debenham
Join Anna as she reflects back on her recent move to Portland, leaving work, selling her flat, packing her stuff and starting fresh again. Anna shares how having an understanding of the Three Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness has helped her in how much of her thinking she took seriously throughout this transitioning process.
“The thoughts that I know so well aren’t generally helpful and are conditioned. They feel like a broken record. They dampen my spirit, and there’s no space to think outside those thoughts.”
