Thanks for dropping by. My intuition told me it's time to move on to the next chapter in my life, so I've decided to end the updates and put Mind Academy to sleep. Hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did. Take risks and stay safe. Love and hugs from Audun.
Your Comfort Zone Is Your Danger Zone 05.03.2022 →
Human beings grow most tired while standing still. Your comfort zone is the most dangerous place to be, and will drain the life force out of you if you stay there for too long. You as a soul need difficulties in order to grow. It may seem contradictory, but challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. If you lack energy when you get up in the morning, find something that inspire you outside of your comfort zone, and go out and challenge yourself.
Life Is a Preparation For The Moment Of Death 05.01.2022 →
Death is a great reminder to live life here and now. Too many people are hoping for a better future and forget that life is only available in the now. The future will never arrive. It will only be this moment. Instead of living for a better future, pull a future you would love to have, towards you, into the now. Bring yourself back into the moment, always. See what you feel to do, and put all your energy into that. If you don’t fill your life with challenges that inspire you, it will fill up with challenges that don’t.
Humans Are More Concerned With Having Than Being 04.30.2022 →
When I observe the people I meet on the street, I sense a separation from being in the now. Out of a hundred people, if I'm lucky, I may be able to establish eye contact with one of them. Living in the city is often more lonely than living on the country side, since people here are living for the future. Most people seem to be inside their own universe, with seemingly little to no interest connecting to consciousness outside of their space. Work, eat, sleep, repeat. Harvest more stuff to attain happiness.
Your Perception Determines Your Reality 04.28.2022 →
If you begin to love yourself, you will find that pain and suffering are only warning signs that you are living against your own truth. Identify with the pain and suffering however, and the universe will continue to mirror that because you identify with it. Your perception functions like a thermostat. If a poor person wins the lottery, he will most likely end up back in debt after a short period, because he identifies himself as a poor person. Change your perception of yourself and your reality changes.
The Quality Of Your Life Is Reflected By Your Choices 04.26.2022 →
What type of life you get is determined by what type of decisions you make. You're just one decision away from a completely different life. I remember being overweight, crying myself to sleep every night because I hated the job I had at the time. Then one day, the decision was made to join the Norwegian Armed Forces, and my state shifted in an instant. I knew it was going to be tough, yet the feeling told me it was going to be worth it. Without a doubt the chapter in my life I am most grateful for.
Are You Clinging To An Older Version Of Yourself? 04.24.2022 →
What's funny is that most people update their cell phones on a regular basis, but forget to upgrade themselves. I know moms who cling to their children as though they were babies, even after their children have become mature and grown old. Is this a healthy relationship? We are all born in each moment, and we all die in each moment. The "Audun" that wrote these words is not the same "Audun" walking around as your read these words. What version of yourself do you choose to be? The old one?
Stay True To Yourself 04.22.2022 →
There is a difference between a feeling and an emotion. To me, a feeling is a movement of energy within me that moves me in a certain direction. Whereas an emotion is the different emotional states that may show up as a result of me stepping out of my comfort zone by following the feeling. If I feel to do something and decide not to act on the feeling, I feel empty inside. Nothing is more painful than betraying yourself. The moment you fully decide to follow the feeling you feel alive and awake.
What Is Essential Is Invisible To The Eye 04.20.2022 →
Have you ever wondered why you want the things you desire? From my experience, it's never the actual things I want, but rather the feeling the things will give me. It may be a physical object, a new relationship, a specific experience, better health, a new job, more money, whatever. If I take a closer look why I want it, it's always an underlying feeling within me that wants to be manifested. The next time you want something new, ask yourself: Why do I want this? What feeling will this bring me?
We Need a Story To Help Us Understand Life 04.18.2022 →
The mystery of life is something I reflect a lot upon. We may believe we know what is going on, yet no one can know for sure. If we did not have a story we can attach our identity to, we would lose our mind. The problem is that we easily mistake the story for reality. We often invest so heavily in our beliefs about life that we forget the breathtaking mystery that life really is. What I've found to be most rewarding, is to be engaged in the story, and at the same time explore what reality means to me.
Your Physical Form Has An Expiry Date 04.16.2022 →
July 6th, 2020, I shared a post showing where I was on my timeline then. My intuition told me to revisit the document today. And wouldn't you know. On this exact day, April 16th, 2022, I have been alive on planet earth exactly 2015 weeks. To me, that was a funny coincidence. 150 years from now, all of humanity will be replaced. Suppose you knew without a doubt that you are a timeless, eternal soul. That will reincarnate into another body once your current body dies. Would that change things?
