The knowledge and activities available from The Life Force Institute are built upon the foundations of “The Reality of Life and Living” derived through the life-long work of William Cook-Edwards. He spent his life working to understand the meaning of life and the human equation, developing a vast amount of information “the Work” in this regard.
Bill’s Story details what led Bill Edwards to gain this information through his own personal experience, and through teaching and imparting this knowledge to many students over the course of 35 years.
Since 2001, the accumulated knowledge was documented, catalogued and refined. During these times for a transition, many different avenues were explored as a way to impart this wealth of knowledge to a wider audience, but with limited diffusion beyond small groups of people.
During 2016, the time was right to start a new endeavour with a renewed focus to update and bring forward this information. This lead to the formation of The Life Force Instituteand the body of teaching material available to you today.
Bills story covers the journey of William Cook-Edwards (Bill Edwards) as he spent decades working to understand life and human existence. Much of this was attained through his own personal experiences and through teaching and imparting this knowledge to many students over the course of 35 years.
Growing Up and Not Fitting In
Bill was born in southern England in 1938, not long before the onset of the Second World War. As a child, he was very nervous and disoriented by many aspects of the world he saw around him. He suffered from continual headaches as well as heartaches, which could not be attributed to the conditions of the time. In all aspects of life, Bill was extremely sensitive and instinctively intuitive to the thoughts, emotions and feelings of others, whether they were expressed externally or held internally within.
At an early age, he saw, felt and heard, what others around him did not. Bill became increasingly sensitive to the connections between the material world and a seemingly separate aspect within himself.
A Time of Seeking Answers
Confused, unsettled, and searching for answers, as a young adult, Bill began seeking answers to understand himself and his sensitivities. This was difficult in an age without the Internet and Social Media that we take for advantage today. Increasingly Bill’s thoughts turned to try to seek out sources of knowledge. He would often ask within himself “Please lead me or guide me wherever is necessary”. Importantly though, Bill wanted to uncover the true answers, to understand the reality of life and living. He would often ask of himself “Please let me know the truth of reality, not what is written.” These two statements would provide the key cornerstones for seeking answers and building an understanding of life over the coming decades. Even today, these statements provide an important foundation for the principles of The Life Force Institute as it strives to present material in a Factual, Truthful, Ethical & Untainted way.
At nineteen years old, guided by his inner self, he migrated from his home country to Canada. When not working for corporations, Bill spent his spare time continuing to seek answers. He visited many people ‘in the know’ across Canada and in the United States, asking psychologists, spiritual teachers and leaders of varying religions. To his dismay, he found that most could not help him to understand the aspects of his true self and his own experiences in life.
During his quest for answers, Bill became aware that some of these individuals had some answers or knowledge, but on a few occasions, some of these people told him that humanity was not ready for such knowledge. He did not comprehend why the knowledge related to “the Reality of Life and Living” should be hidden by the few and kept secret. As Bill spoke with more people, he came to the realisation that for too long people have been misled into believing and accepting half-truths, or even worse no truth at all, with knowledge being held back or shrouded in secrecy. His quest to bring this knowledge out into the light became his primary motivation and passion to keep seeking answers.
In his early twenties, his searching for truth led him to a man from Haiti who would provide some early instruction and teaching for Bill. Through the guidance of his new found teacher and Bill’s own personal experiences, he started to glimpse some of the hidden truths of life. Bill began to realise that each of us was more than just our physical body. His experiences clearly showed him that as humans, we are more than our biological mechanism. He began to come to the realisation that each of us are energy beings formed from the energies of the Universal Force. Over the intervening years, much has been written about this power source behind the physical mechanism; the true self, in-dwelling spirit, or the soul to name but a few. However, at this time during the early 1960s, much of the information was vague, intangible and often a mystery hidden within religion.
Through the course of Bill’s progress with his teacher and guides, he continued to gain knowledge of the keys to understanding the Reality of Life and Living. The application of this knowledge led to his ability to recognise, awaken and release the energies of his true self within – his very own Life Force.
Awakening the Knowledge
Bill continued working to bring forward his Life Force energies, which enabled him to access higher states of mind and conscious awareness. During this phase of exploration, he found the importance of quietening his mind to appreciate what it means to meditate in the silence. This was (and still is today) an important and often overlooked step upon the pathway. If you cannot bring calmness and quietness to your mind, as the energies of the Life Force awakens, those energies can feed thoughts and emotions of the lower ego. Bill was able to realise that references to the mythical Pandora’s Box were, in fact, a reference to opening yourself to the thoughts and emotions of the lower ego. Without the quietness of mind and mastery of emotions, then awakening his Life Force energies, could lead to many inconsequential effects, much like opening that infamous Pandora’s Box.
After a few years, Bill progressed through his own personal experiences as he began to surpass the knowledge and experience of his teacher. This continued progress to calm his mind and master his emotions, enabled Bill to more successfully access the knowledge of internal and external energies which affected him. He began to realise the complexities of the various energies which continually ebbed and flow through and around his body. His own experiences lead to an increased understanding of the energies which mentally, physically and emotionally affect each of us every day.
Through being aware of his thoughts and their effects, he began to consider the role of his own human mind. He began to investigate how his mind played its role in life: mentally, physically and emotionally. His experiences showed him that it was the energies of the mind, especially detrimental thoughts, which created a large proportion of problems, insecurities, anxieties, unhappiness and lack of wellbeing in life. He became increasingly aware of this in the people around him.
He came to an increasing realisation that most of the people around him were blindly walking the pathway of life. Each of us lives life to the best of our ability, but we are blind to many of the effects upon us. Most of humanity does not realise how destructive and dangerous our own thoughts and emotional reactions can be. We do not stop to consider, that our own minds, with their conditioned reactions, can bring forward very strong emotions, reactions and feelings.
Realising his own thoughts and emotions were the greatest challenge to achieving balance and harmony in his life, he did not spend years sitting in the lotus position or chanting. Instead, Bill declared war on his own thoughts and emotions. He found that if he did not quell his own thoughts, they would prevent access to the fullest capabilities of his Life Force. Energies of detrimental thoughts and negative emotions created a static or discordant wavelength which proved incompatible with his Life Force energies.
As Bill continued to progress in his journey of understanding, he continued to work on mastering his thoughts and emotions, realising that this was a vital key. As he was able to attain greater calmness and balance in his daily life, many other senses that had been lying dormant and unused came to the fore. Energies of his Life Force brought forward his sixth sense, intuition or inner awareness. Tapping into these more profound aspects of understanding, he continually worked to document the on-going knowledge and effects of the energies available for humanity to apply, to help them in their lives.
During the late 1970s, Bill augmented his own exploration of life, by completing studies in business psychology at the Kent University in England before returning to North America. Here he then spent the next decade lecturing across Canada and the United States on the diverse aspects of human existence.
Establishing the Work
In the early 1980s, Bill felt compelled to move to a different continent, so in 1982 he moved to Brisbane, Australia. It was in Brisbane, that the majority of the knowledge and experiences were documented, as Bill could now fully devote his time, energy, patience and perseverance into expanding, what he called “the Work”.
During the course of the next few years, Bill worked to document and publish eighteen small booklets on various topics. These were made available through “Tomorrows World Sales and Marketing” of Kippa-ring, Queensland and registered with the National Library of Australia.
Through word of mouth and through several martial arts schools, Bill began to teach a small number of students based on his own personal experiences. He worked tirelessly, continually expanding, refining and documenting the knowledge of the diverse energies and aspects, constructive or destructive, affecting individuals and the world around them.
As the number of students grew, he soon transferred these classes to larger premises at Coopers Plains on the Southside of Brisbane, where he established the Universal College of Inner Knowledge. With the increasing number of students, he began teaching every weeknight on more diverse subjects as further insights became available. Over time, he began to conduct classes to train others to carry on “the Work” upholding the principles contained within. With the help of additional teachers, he was able to expand the reach of the knowledge to wider audiences and begin to introduce knowledge curriculum at different levels.
The classes, seminars and workshops ranged from introductory to advanced topics and applications. Some of the areas of knowledge covered within the Work included:
- Aspects of self-awareness which embodied: attunement (or at-onement), cleansing and balancing yourself, commands and directives, contemplation, ego, emotional wellbeing, higher states of mind, Kaballah, Karma and causality, mastering thoughts and emotions, meditation and cognition, mindful awareness, your personality, visualisation and ekagrata, as well as why you are here.
- Knowledge of the component part of the human mechanism which included: the Astral body, your Aura, Charkas and energy centres, Chi and energy pathways, the Etheric body, Meridians, your mental mind, Prana, the Tree of Life, and your many bodies.
- Insights to the diverse aspects of creation in the universe around us such as: comprehending Cosmic Forces, understanding the Rays, the energy of colours and sound, the levels of existence, understanding the Elements of creation and Solar Radiance.
- Appreciation of the order of existence including areas of: Atmic levels, Astral levels, Buddhic levels, Cosmic levels, Manasic levels, Nirvanic levels and the Hierarchies to name just a few.
- Comprehending how energies influence and affect us as individuals entailing: astronomical astrology, healing therapies, your own Life Force, magnetic healing, and universal healing.
- Realising the intuition of your inner self to achieve: Clairvoyance, counselling, Numerology, Psychic capabilities and Tarot.
After each of the classes, material from the student’s experiences would be collated to help understand the diverse aspects of humanity and their reactions to life. He was extremely grateful to all those who came forward to assist him in so many ways in this endeavour. This knowledge became the foundation for diversified curriculum and teaching manuals to aid in bringing the understanding of “The reality of Life and Living” forward.
All of the teachings delved into the reality of existence, crossing the barriers of knowledge to bring forward knowledge and understanding. It was essential to awaken this knowledge for humanity to understand self and the energies which affect our lives. Over time, Bill came to realise the bottom line is that everything is energy.
Through his own personal experiences, those of his students and shattering of illusions, Bill came to recognise that humankind had been robbed of their connection to the Universe. Through accessing the energies of the inner you, your Life Force, he realised it was possible to reconnect back to the Universe. The gap between the inner self and the outer material world is then bridged to illuminate your life with understanding.
The Winds of Change
During 1996, the winds of change were again directing Bill to make changes in his life. Later in that year, Bill moved to a beachside suburb in Melbourne Australia, where he established additional classes, while regularly returning to Brisbane to conduct special workshops and seminars. With a well-established base of teachers in Brisbane and Melbourne, a year later he returned via the United States back to his home country of the United Kingdom. Back in the UK, Bill settled near the seaside town of Bournemouth, where he continued to bring forward additional insights and information for classes back in Australia which were being conducted by teachers which he had previously taught.
Bill felt that it was heartbreaking and a shame that the majority of people only accept the outer senses; not realising that more knowledge can be brought forward through the inner senses for human beings to act like humanitarians and be healthy and happy.
He always looked for the truth and threw away hype and sensationalism to find the underlying reality. Bill devoted his life to bringing forward the know-how for the life and living of others. He continually strived to reinforce the ideals that the most important thing you can do for yourself and others in your life is to become master of your own thoughts and emotions.
Comprehending the Legacy
Through the Work, Bill brought much-needed information forward for humanity to not only understand self, but to control self and to control the energies which affect every facet of your being and your life. He shone a light of understanding on how it was possible to work with your inner self, your Life Force, to bring aspects of calmness, health and wellbeing.
What was most pronounced for all participants throughout all the classes that Bill or his teachers taught, was that it was about your own individual journey. The experiences, awareness and the level of sensitivity varied between each of the students in classes. After each exercise, it is customary for teachers to ask different individuals what they had experienced. At no time, were any of the students told what they should experience, as Bill did not want their minds to influence their experiences. The experiences of each of the students then added to the body of the Work, helping each person better understand the aspects of the activity being conducted. It was typical for each of the students to experience the inner energies of their Life Force differently. While some people could easily sense the changes occurring within themselves, others found it more difficult to sense. All students would agree that some aspect changed through the course of the activity; often students had difficulties translating the experiences effectively into words, as new experiences or sensations could not be translated by the mental mind.
One has to ask, why is there so much fear created in our society through misinformation and misguidance. The breakthrough for many students was when they realised that thoughts, emotions and feelings all result in energy which can have either a constructive or detrimental effect upon the body and one’s life. From this, realisation soon followed that to become a worthwhile, productive, happy, healthy human being, that control of oneself is the answer for your ultimate success.
Over the decades, the experiences of Bill, his teachers and students repeatedly showed the many challenges on the pathway to awakening the Life Force. It proved vital to comprehend that the process of awakening the inner self should never be forced. If people applied concentrated thought or other activities which try to tap into the energy matrix or centres, such as chakras, these were often found to have detrimental effects. Just as importantly, students had to learn to become the master on their own self. This meant being able to tame and quell the demons (your own thoughts, emotions and feelings) within.
If anyone stepping onto the pathway of self-awareness does not honestly evaluate their thinking and reactions to situations and life, then these aspects will lay hidden in waiting. As you reach within to the inner you, the inner energies of your own Life Force begin to gradually flow into the various component parts of your human mechanism. As these energies increase, they will not only feed into the higher aspects of self, but will flow into all parts of your being. These increasing energies can trigger thoughts, emotions or feelings which you thought were long removed from your life. This is why you must always look at yourself with the utmost honesty as you strive to become master within and control the demons from any and every corner of your mind.
Bill’s legacy for humankind is all-encompassing; social, financial, religious or personal status have no bearing. The ‘Reality of Life and Living’ pertains to every human being who has walked on this earth, those who are on this planet now, and those of the future who will take their turn. You can choose how to live your life with higher unemotional reasoning through right thought, right speech and right action, rather than only reacting to life and living through your pre-programmed aspects and conditioned thinking.
The sum of this information and the intellectual property of the Work is amassed is in the form of tens of thousands of files and documented classes, his student’s personal experiences, workshops, manuals, teacher training and pocket-sized books.
Times for Transition
After Bills death in 2001, it proved to be the start of a transition for those who had been impacted by his presence on this planet. Their challenge was how to keep this extensive collection of knowledge alive and ensure its long term availability.
One of the early challenges faced was how to update the information effectively into the digital age. A significant portion of the information had been stored in old word processor files which were no longer readily accessible. Thanks to the diligent efforts of one devoted individual, over the course on more than a decade twenty-seven thousand (27,000) documents were imported, revised and updated to remove the wingdings which existed throughout the files and make the information readable. These new documents were then catalogued updating them from old eight-character filenames to something more indicative of the information.
In addition to these old electronic files, a vast library of tens of thousands of pages of handwritten notes lay in boxes gathering dust. All of this material is continuing to be digitised and transposed so that the information contained in these documents will not be lost. This is a significant ongoing effort to ensure the genuine authenticity of “the Work” will always remain intact.
This provides a wonderful legacy of information and knowledge about many diverse aspects of life and living within this human framework. The more formidable challenge remained, how to make this information available in a way which would preserve its truth, value and integrity. During the early part of the new century, several different ventures were established in Brisbane and on the Internet to provide various means of making this information available to others.
Is it out There?
During the early decades of the twenty-first century, those with this knowledge scoured other sources of knowledge, philosophy, psychology, metaphysics, transcendental studies, theosophy, esoteric studies and even aspects of the occult trying to identify if this level of information was already “out there”.
The studies of psychology and philosophy both provided ample sources of information. The focus though was limited to a few aspects of the human mechanism, the mental mind and sub-conscious. While these fields of study prove useful and beneficial to some, they lack the full comprehension of the human mechanism and an understanding of causality, which is a guiding principle of living.
Transcendental studies and information on the occult or esoteric, all provided glimpses of something more. Transcendental studies bought the notion forward of experience beyond or above the sphere of understanding, explaining matter and the Universe as products of mental conception. Many esoteric studies were often found to be limited to a secret or special field of study. All the while, aspects of the occult seemed increasingly focused on the knowledge which was considered hidden from view or deemed undesirable by society. Each of these areas of knowledge were found to proffer some small glimpses of insight, but had been too often taken in isolation, leading to a restricted view of the human equation.
Broadly speaking, theosophy was found to provide many forms of philosophy and mysticism aiming at the knowledge of God. This was achieved by means of intuition and contemplative illumination in combination with some esoteric teaching. However, here again, it was found that much of the information had become wrapped up on history and dogma.
Of all the various forms of information investigated, the closest analogy found to “the Work” came in the form of metaphysics. That being a branch of philosophy which deals with first principles, including the science of being ontology (the nature of being) and epistemology (the theory of knowledge and the rational belief). Metaphysics as a basis of study, investigated and explained the nature of all things or existences, their qualities and attributes. The basic principles of study were found to closely align to the underlying principles of experience and understanding which were embodied in the information, which had been accumulated over the years, through the intuition and personal experiences of Bill.
Through these increasing levels of investigation, it was found that it was not all out there. While some bodies of work sounded similar, on more in-depth investigation, it was found that the level of information which had been accumulated in “the Work” contained significantly more detail, greater insights and was broader in scope. What was often found in other material were small snippets or insights of knowledge that had become polished and bloated to the extent where the original intent of the information was often difficult to comprehend. The information was often being presented to satisfy a need of people by being focused on quick fix answers, adrenalin based experiences or fads, rather than on more meaningful knowledge-based approaches to how one could understand and comprehend the “The reality of Life and Living”.
Personal development and self-help had also become buzzwords, fads and were breeding faster than rabbits. Like so many people, often when you are confronted by difficult circumstances in your life, this brings about an opportunity for change. Some people take this opportunity to see the shattered illusions as being an opportunity, while others may shy away from the feeling of impending change. When going through rough patches in life, many people see self-help as the last thing. What was realised through “the Work” is that positive thinking, affirmations or mantras alone are not enough. With a better understanding of the human mechanism, it was shown that people’s minds are their own worst enemy. Through easy practical activities, people could be instructed on how to apply their inner self for emotional and mental wellbeing, health, stability and happiness. When people gain a better understanding of how life and living function, it provides an impetus to change their reactions.
There was no basic Life Force 101 information, which aimed to explain the theory and experiences of your inner self. The physical aspects of you as a human being are indivisible from the inner, or in-dwelling self; they are not separate but importantly the Life Force is an integral component of the human mechanism. One life pervades all forms. A natural progression takes place as you start working with your Life Force energies, though this needs to be constantly balanced with the challenges of the mind.
Empowering Trust in the Work
It is realised that there are many individuals working on their own endeavours to help others and to share their knowledge and experiences. However, for many people, there seems to be a quotient of truth leading people to believe and accept so-called facts that are half-truths, or not the truth at all.
A principal teacher trained by Bill, can still clearly recall their first class, forty years ago. Within the first few minutes, all of the students in the class were tapping into the energies of the inner self, the Life Force. The way in which the classes were conducted allowed no time for the mind to kick in and build barriers, all of the students just experienced the energies for themselves. The classes were taught without sensationalism, as if this were the most natural thing to do. At no time during any of the classes, were the students told what they should experience, as Bill did not want the students’ minds to create or influence their experiences. Each student then documented the activity, so they could practice at home and share their experiences.
As students continued to attend classes and perform activities, they found that through increased levels of understanding, they each found they had significantly more choices and freedom of will. Many of their misconceptions, or half-truths could be laid aside once they understood the complexities and controlling powers of the mental mind. This type of knowledge provided students with an increased range of choices at any given moment of their life.
Many of the teachers trained in “the Work”, will profess to not being a guru, sage or another such gifted person. All of these people can recall experiencing the shattering of life’s illusions through varying circumstances at different times in their lives. They were all given the opportunity to understand life as it really is; like being shown the manual for the gadget which you have not been able to get to work correctly for years.
The classes, activities and personal experience brought forward through “the Work” has opened the mind of countless people to different concepts in recognising, experiencing and working with the Life Force and energies which shape and control their lives.
While we may all accept that we are products of our own mind, how many of us understand what this truly means and how to leverage that to change our lives? Many of the students apply such knowledge in their daily lives now, not realising what a difference this has made to them; while others continue to seek ways to ensure that others have access to this same wealth of information and knowledge so that it does not become lost or forgotten.
Exploring Side Endeavours
From 2003, Assets Unlimited was established to focus as a “sanctuary for the study of Alpha Omega Meditation and Healing Therapies”. The premise is that through Alpha Omega Meditation, students could achieve higher states of consciousness and understanding, which were not possible through activities which were based in the mental mind. Through appropriate engagement, students could increase their ability to sense, thus experiencing and better understanding aspects of esoteric and metaphysical energies.
Assets unlimited also worked to bring forward “Attunement” which is the science of understanding the reality of your own being and your association to reality. In time past, it is said that the Ancients knew the microcosm of human life was a reflection of the macrocosm of the Universe. Attunement classes provided the ability to learn and experience how the world around you, as well as within you, is dependent upon energy and also controlled by energy. In collaboration with Assets Unlimited, Todays Insight was also formed, offering additional aspects of intuitive consulting and natural energy healing.
Both of these establishments worked to provide various courses and workshops. All of the ongoing weekly classes and workshops were all based on material derived from “the Work” of Bill Edwards. The primary topics included:
- Attunement or Inner Progression: was devoted to the knowledge of the inner you, and how the energies of life affect you on a daily basis.
- Alpha Omega Healing: provided students with the knowledge of how to associate to higher wavelengths of creation, enabling them to tap into energies for the healing of self and others.
- Relaxation Techniques: delivered many simple techniques which could be used to assist in calming the nervous system and moving into a tranquil and nurtured state.
- Tree of Life: investigated the complexities of the many component parts of the human mechanism. Students were given insight into working of the mental and emotional mechanism and how that related the ethereal body as the main energy interchange within human existence.
- The Rays of Creation: enabled students to delve into the composition of colours, sound and the Rays as carriers of the energy of the Universe around them.
- Inner Astrology: investigated the effects of the energies via the Planets and Constellations according to what was in the correct astronomical position. Through increased understanding, students were provided with an opportunity to comprehend how the energies of the Universe around them can have an influence on their lives.
- Psychic Capabilities: many students would find with quietening minds and an increased sensitivity they were able to tap into their Sixth Sense. This could be used in the application of Clairvoyance, Psychometry, Tarot and Billet Reading.
During the decade or so following Bill’s death, there have been various attempts to disseminate the knowledge, which have been met with mixed success. There were also personal challenges for those leading the charge as they grappled with their own self and how to best embrace the legacy of the Work.
All of these activities and endeavours, even those that ultimately proved unsuccessful, were critical to the ongoing genesis of the knowledge; without which the caterpillar could not undergo metamorphosis in the chrysalis of life, before later emerging as a butterfly.
The Emergence of Understanding
As we progressed through twenty-sixteen, the light of illumination shone in a new direction, leading us to explore new and additional means to facilitate the sharing of the information contained within the Work. A group of people were tasked as custodians to bring the process of bringing the work forward so that it could emerge into the light of the world. One of the most substantial challenges to face them was to move beyond the world of false illusions which fill much of the social media and the virtual world of the early 21st century. The ongoing effort of these individuals and others who assist them, continues to bring forward the emergence of hidden insights and information, much like a kaleidoscope of butterflies emerging from their chrysalis.
It was realised that a lot had changed in the world since when Bill started his studies and even as “the Work” was laid down. The truth and understanding of the material remain the same, but the modern world presented both increasing opportunities as well as challenges in how the information should be made available. As with many establishments or even cities, you will find that they have been built upon the work of the past. The vast body of material from “the Work” is being utilised as the foundations for The Life Force Institute. This material provides a significant source of intellectual property on the science of understanding the reality of your own being and your association to reality, which is not well understood or available from other sources.
Over recent decades knowledge on the human equation has become increasingly focused on a personality-driven approach, where the brand can mean more than substance. The custodians perceived the challenges presented by this type of approach. As teachings became more personal, they would often become influenced by the lower ego and the emotional energies of the individual. The custodians recognised the need to keep the knowledge untainted, so established The Life Force Institute as a neutral mechanism to allow the knowledge to flourish in the light of day.
The Life Force Institute will strive to illuminate people’s lives with understanding, so that they are more able to fully understand the diverse aspects of life and their own self. While many organisations want to possess and control information, the custodians agreed that our guiding principle should be one of openness, as we allow students to be independent and self-reliant with open minds to what they experience, learn and share.
The custodians of Bill’s legacy at The Life Force Institute then embarked upon the journey to discover the imperatives for, as well as barriers which could prevent the dissemination of the information to wider audiences of people. The custodians took many of the following considerations into account as they developed the information, curriculum, activities and social media presence for The Life Force Institute:
- How could the vast amounts of information from the Work be made understandable and genuinely accessible?
- The old mechanisms needed to adapt to the plethora of information sources and short term gains which people seek these days.
- What was necessary to compete in a world where the average attention span seemed to have been dramatically decreasing?
- How could we ensure that there was the appropriate perceived value to the information and that it did not become lost in the swathes of false information and illusions?
- So much of people’s lives have become filled with memes or other sayings without any real purpose or underlying understanding.
- Always keeping focused; it is not about spiritual conquest or being better than others – it is merely about the truth to enable people to truly be themselves.
- What is necessary to help people understand how their minds work and how thoughts can control their lives?
- Devise simple steps which allow people to gradually awaken the Life Force in a natural and controlled manner.
- Realising we cannot stand alone, how do we differentiate the activities to ensure we stand out and break free of the noise of disinformation?
- How can this valuable resource be updated and made available while maintaining the truth of the original findings – keeping the work truthful.
- Always ensuring that the information remains untainted, so that it does not become coloured or diluted by the emotional constraints of thinking.
- How to bring forward the facts which were uncovered in a way which will be current and understandable by new generations of individuals.
- We could espouse vast waftings from the ether; but this would seem unintelligible from the background noise of humanity.
- How do we transform brief teacher lead instructions into self-guided activities?
- Always ensure that the information is disseminated, with the focus on the wellbeing of others.
- How to share this information in a way in which knowledge can lead to wellness and illumination in people’s lives.
- All the time, continuing to strive to present this information ethically, to ensure that the other goals are maintained and never compromised for baseless returns or the quick buck.
Beyond these items, the custodians had to also investigate all of the various technologies and intricacies of the Social Media to determine the most effective way to build upon the foundation of the Work. While an initial domain name, website and email had all been commissioned, there was the need to make this something unique. The custodians set about working with their business partners to establish a web presence which included a combination of new insight and information, regular weekly blogs and an online shop which would provide universal access to activities which would be made available from The Life Force Institute. Much of this work occurred in parallel with other tasks undertaken by the custodians as we all grappled with the ongoing evolution of information.
The custodians then analysed and reviewed much of the introductory material which had been used by some of the precursor organisations. From this, a roadmap of self-guided activities were developed which would set the long-term groundwork and direction for items which will be developed and published. For each and every activity, it is necessary to thoroughly review the context of the source material and supplement this with information, so that the activities can be conducted as either instructor facilitated or performed as self-guided activities by people who have purchased and downloaded the material. It was necessary to design these activities with clear statements of the intent of the activity, including means to calm people’s minds, provide topical information and of course include the core activity with detailed annotated steps.
The basic level of self-guided activities available from The Life Force Institute are all called “Kickstarter Activities”, these are all targeted towards providing an introduction for all further material and activities. The information contained in all kickstarter activities is necessary for people to progress to higher levels of activity as they provide the fundamental principles and basis of all activities conducted by The Life Force Institute. To assist people in starting out many of these introductory activities have been combined in bundles.
After the development of the initial set of Kickstarter activities, the custodians reviewed ongoing feedback about the material and determined that additional simplified material was necessary to help people assimilate the information at a level appropriate to their level of sensitivity, balance and understanding. From this, several focused levels of the curriculum were devised.
Breathe with Purpose
The custodians came to the realisation that many people struggle just to make it through their day and for some, even the thought of mindfulness may be too far removed from their daily lives. It was noticed that there were many varied practices of breathing, tapping and such as a means to try to bring come calmness to people’s lives.
Each of us breathes throughout the day, but for the most part, this activity goes unnoticed as this bodily function is controlled through the autonomic nervous system. Through becoming observant of your own breathing, you have the opportunity to calm your mind.
The custodians reviewed past information to determine what secrets had been hidden within the Work. Then through some simple applications, a new 10 step process called “Breathe with Purpose” was devised. This process builds upon popular breathing techniques, but add some unique insight.
Breathe with Purpose from The Life Force institute allows people to better focus on the purpose of the activity as thoughts are placed within the back of the mind. Through the course of the activity, these thoughts are repeated, reinforced with the energy of a mantra, before flowing forward into the conscious mind to achieve the desired task.
These “Breathe with Purpose” activities are being published in our online shop and made complimentary or free for anyone to download, as we believe their benefits are important for everyone. This provides an example of how we are working to help raise the knowledge of all humanity.
Life Force Mindfulness
Stepping above aspects of breathing, mindfulness was recognised as becoming ubiquitous in society. Even car manufacturers are now claiming to have a “mindfulness influenced dashboard display”. However, in its more genuine meaning, mindfulness has an important role to play in achieving wellbeing. Numerous mindfulness techniques have become part of business and healthcare services, to help people deal with the challenges of daily life. Mindfulness very simply is paying attention to the present moment, so that you are then mindful of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions as well as aspects of the world around you.
In today’s modern world, many of us have stopped noticing the world within and around us, especially when we live busy lives. It is all too easy to lose touch with the sensations of life and living, to become someone who acts purely through passive intellect to the various stimuli in life. We all have the capacity to be mindful, to pay attention to the present moment.
Many mindfulness practices have been derived from Buddhist meditation methods. Some people debate the fact that these modern techniques lack aspects of contemplation or an understanding of causality. Without a broader understanding of causality and understanding of your thoughts, emotions and feelings, then such techniques only address the surface and superficial aspects of life, like treating a symptom and not the cause of an illness or situation.
Many of us continue to struggle with the motivation or discipline to incorporate these mindfulness practices into our lives. Often these practices are mistakenly thought to be goal oriented, which moves them away from being a part of your normal way of life. The focus on the functional aspect of achieving these goals is counter to the underlying principles of living in the moment, which is a central tenant of mindfulness. You do not have to change who you are or alter your beliefs to become more self-aware; but how could we leverage some of the hidden information from the Work in order to achieve greater levels of success with mindfulness?
No matter where you are, or whatever your lifestyle, Life Force mindfulness will enable you to leverage your inner self, your Life Force to exceed most typical mindfulness exercises or training. Your true intentions arise from the innate nature of your Life Force. Through practice, you can learn to place thoughts with a dedicated purpose or intent from within your Life Force. These thoughts then propagate forward into your normal conscious mind and your usual way of thinking. When these intentions manifest within the stillness of your conscious mind, greater success can be achieved.
Life Force mindfulness, enriches basic mindfulness techniques with a unique set of capabilities introduced by The Life Force Institute which equips people with a set of tools to help them deal better with life and living.
Life Force Meditation
Today, there are many different types of meditation practised across the world, which includes: mindful breathing, mindfulness and progressive muscle relaxation. These techniques are designed to help people deal with life and improve their cognitive capabilities. Meditation, like mindfulness, has been receiving growing acceptance globally.
What is termed New Age meditations are typically influenced by Eastern philosophy such as yoga, Hinduism and Buddhism; combined with some aspects of Western influence. New Age meditation had its roots in the 1960s, often depicted as practised by hippies. The aim being, to blank out the mind and releasing oneself from conscious thinking. These techniques often relied upon the aided by repetitive chanting of a mantra, or focusing on an object. From these roots, New Age meditation has evolved into a range of various techniques.
In the simplest form, meditation can be stated as being at one. Through learning to bring quietness to your mind and silencing the endless noise of your thoughts, emotions and feelings, gradually the essence of your true self, the Life Force, begins to emerge.
The light of your Life Force, the true self within all people, is hidden behind barriers of material thoughts, emotions and feelings which have been built up by your mind and persona. Through an open, peaceful and quiet mind, this light of your Life Force can be awakened through various Life Force meditation techniques.
Life Force meditation leverages your active intellect to bring about a quietness and calmness of your mind. This is an essential and often overlooked step upon the pathway, which must be understood. You must learn to bring a calmness and quietness to your mind, otherwise, as the energies of your Life Force awakens, these energies can feed the rampant and uncontrolled thoughts and emotions. Overcoming such reactions and breaking down your emotional immersion, gradually leads to the awakening of your Life Force.
As you continue to work with the energies of your Life Force, the light of your Life Force shines progressively more into your mind. Life Force meditation enlivens the Life Force with a dedicated purpose of thought, allowing you to surpass typical meditation states, exceed the achievements of mindfulness and positive thinking all of which are limited by and within the mental mind.
Realising your Choices
All of the information and activities made available through The Life Force Institute aspire you to be a free thinker, an individual who through your own personal experiences access and work with the energy within and around you.
The motivation needed to make changes for yourself and in your life comes from understanding yourself, your energies and the component parts of yourself. You are of energy with a mind to think, evaluate, reason and learn. Though realise that for the majority of people, it is your own personality and mind, which are the biggest challenges. Your personality is programmed to resist change, to retain the current status quo and maintain the control it has in your life.
You cannot progress and expect all the literal emotional baggage which you have accumulated to disappear overnight – it does not work that way. Clicking on something in an app and expecting that tomorrow, things will become magically different in your life simply is unlikely to work. To achieve your true potential takes time, no matter how you go about bringing forward change, but it takes only one instance to recognise the need to bring about making such transformations in your life, to light the spark for change to begin.
Whenever you make a decision in your life, realise that there is causality (either good, bad or indifferent). Everything that you did up until now, has had a cause and effect factor, what some call karma. Realise you have a choice, as you apply various techniques to quieten your mind, you can then have the opportunity to choose how to react (or not react) to life and all the situations and influences contained therein. In life if you want to be happy you can, and if you want to be unhappy, you can; but either way you will answer to the consequences. Negativity creates sickness; happiness creates Health. Activities made available through The Life Force Institute are all designed to help create a balance and calmness, which is all-encompassing. You can become the master of your own life, the master of your own thoughts, emotions, feelings and reactions.
