OF MYSELF I CAN DO NOTHING. THE FATHER THAT DWELLETH WITHIN ME, HE DOETH THE WORKS.

“OF MYSELF I CAN DO NOTHING. THE FATHER THAT DWELLETH WITHIN ME, HE DOETH THE WORKS.”

 

This is without question one of my favorite quotes. The first time I read this was in the book series, The Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East. I was 22 years old and having been studying the Law of Attraction habitually for the past three years I was at first put off by this statement. My ego had been heavily stroked as a result of feeling that I was the ultimate creator of my reality, Zach the body, not fully understanding the depths of which I was mistaken. However, as I was physically unable to put down the books, my consciousness expanded more so than I could imagine. By the end of one week, and three books later, I understood the true meaning behind that quote. I’d like to share with you after nine more years of inner work, research, and consciousness expansion, how I understand those words.

 

I’d like to throw another quote into the pot though before we go further,

 

human beings 1

“We are not physical beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

 

If we look at the similarity between these two quotes we can see how important it is to begin to look at our lives as spiritual beings, rather than heavily dense physical entities. This is also, in my opinion, the most difficult aspect of entering into a human body. As we enter into these bodies forgetting our true nature we tend to get so distracted and lost that we can often go our whole lives not remembering the beauty of who we are. Day after day we wake up and see this meat suit in the mirror and rarely take the time to ask ourselves, “Who is viewing this body?” We get taught in school that our brain is the perceiver of the experience, thereby stopping the questioning of who the true observer is. All the while still calling it “my body.” Hardly do we ask, “If it is ‘my body’ then who does it belong to?”

 

However, once these questions become reignited in our consciousness, we finally take the quest inward.

 

We begin to take the quest, which brings us to recognize that there is a perceiver of the experience, a perceiver of the body, but yet we have within us an innate knowing that we have the capacity to shape the world outside of us. So, we journey deeper within, asking who the “ME” truly is. We are not satisfied with the simple explanation of purely being physical bodies with hormonal responses, neuro-muscular signals, etc. We can’t help but ask, “Who am I? Who am I? Who the hell am I?” Yes, I HAVE a body, but why the heck do I feel so interested in the after-life? Why am I fascinated by miracles? Why does the unknown intrigue me so much? Okay, so maybe that was me, but I bet we aren’t so different.

 

Now we have all these questions, and we begin to have experiences that some call coincidence, but they just keep happening too frequently to be mere random happenings. So, then we find books, and people, and YouTube videos explaining the phenomenon called synchronicity, and realize that maybe the body isn’t all that we are. We start to see in our daily life that as we focus on something, it begins to show up more frequently in our lives. We think of someone and we run into them. We think about how wonderful it would be to have more money then hear of a story about rags to riches. We see in our mind how wonderful a healthy body would feel and all of a sudden we begin to get better. Then BAM! It starts to resonate and make more sense.

 

Alright, so maybe that was my experience. As a result of my experience I learned a thing or two, and I remembered a thing or one hundred. So, if you’ve made it to this paragraph…congratulations!!! Now it’s time to get preachy…

 

I want you to remember that you are far beyond what you could ever conceptualize. As you ask those questions in the previous paragraphs you will realize that the “Father within” is not the “you” that you see with your eyes, but the “You” that observes through your eyes. You are a soul, a spiritual entity, inhabiting a body for joyful expansion, for learning, for fun, for Love. You came to be the experiencer of life, to play, to laugh, to cry, rather than sit in a library and learn about the experience. A book can only take you so far, but a journey walked can take you anywhere. The Father that dwelleth within you is the True You. That is the real You…the eternal Self, the Atma, the Christ consciousness.

 

We get so lost so easily in just being the body, but that is truly the tip of the iceberg. You are an infinite being, getting the opportunity to live an earthly experience. You have been here before, and you may very well likely come back. This experience is not for the faint of heart, or the weak-minded, it is for the strongest souls in the uni-verse. You are one of the souls! But you have forgotten that. I just want you to remember, even if for a brief moment. How many times has something so simple and so magical happened? Do you really think it was because you were lucky? It is because you are an eternal, divine, magical creator. Not you the body, but You the consciousness. Do you know why it is important to meditate? Because through meditation you remember that truth. You remember that you are an infinite, eternal, divine, creative being inhabiting a physical body for a short while. Can you even comprehend eternity? How about a billion years? How about a million years? How about 100,000 years? How about 10,000 years? We can’t possibly conceive of the vastness of our Eternal Self because our conscious thinking mind is stuck looking at the minuteness of our current physical self. Hence the reason we go deeper into the depths of our being through meditation and by doing so align with that Eternal Self, the Father within.

 

You aren’t going to create magic if you keep seeing yourself as this tiny little body that a rock could so easily crush. The Father that dwelleth within you, the Eternal, Divine Self that you truly are, doeth the works. How true is the statement, “Let go and let God.” That God is the REAL YOU. Not a white bearded man in the sky but an infinite Presence. The Father that dwelleth within, dwelleth within all things. We try to rationalize an Infinite Eternal Presence, by saying, He is the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Well my beauty, you have the Holy Spirit within you, therefore by deduction you are all three. Where the Spirit resides so does the Father. You are that Eternal Presence. The issue is that we get lost in this magnificence because the “little you,” the body you, has an incredibly hard time conceptualizing this. That is why the intellectual you will never fully know the magnitude that is your true divinity. The way to your deepest knowing is not through your mind, but through your heart. It must first be felt, be experienced, and then through feeling it again and again and again the mind becomes able to conceptualize it, to finally give in and acknowledge your grandeur.

 

You may have heard this before, this may be your first-time hearing this, but either way it is because you know this fully within the depths of your heart, you simply are afraid to acknowledge it. Your conscious mind, your ego, is afraid to acknowledge this because if it loses its grip, who do you then become? This is the fun part. As you transcend the ego, you get to play more openly, more freely. You no longer become victim to your ego, but you have ultimate control over how you wish to experience the world and allow the ego to be a fun tool in your consciousness toolbox.

 

You are reading this because it is your time of transition. It is your time of consciousness expansion. You are moving beyond that which you thought you were, to that which you truly are. How do you speed this process up you ask? Meditate. Practice letting go through your breath. Make a practice of also observing your surroundings and asking yourself, “Who is observing right now?” These two practices will move you deeper. Also, talk to that aspect of yourself, your Higher Self, your angels, Divine Spirit, Source, whatever you like to call it. Once you talk, shut up and listen! Listen to what you feel. Listen for ringing in your ears. Listen to sensations in your body. Just listen. Be playful with all of this. Don’t take it so seriously. Release the attachments to your life. Releasing attachments doesn’t mean to stop caring. It means that whatever the circumstances you will still love openly and deeply and not be thrown by the storms of life. You will step out onto the water and declare yourself an extension of the Infinite. You will declare yourself the Christ child. You will know whole-heartedly that this body is purely a fun vessel in which you get to have your earthly experience. You will finally embrace your eternalness and begin to create the life you wish. This is bliss. This is true freedom. This is why you are here. “My Father and I are One.” Let those words ring throughout your body, throughout your consciousness, nothing could be closer to the Truth.

How To Heal Yourself…With Thought…

Uncategorized

How to heal yourself is a question that I think most people going through some type of illness ask themselves. Healing is a natural process of life and is under our control. Yet, we must be strong enough to move past fear and into Love in order that it may manifest. You’re powerful beyond measure and when you accept that, all things will change in your life.

WHAT I LEARNED FROM HAVING CANCER…

Uncategorized

Today, August 25th, marks the 14th anniversary of being diagnosed with cancer (leukemia), and I wanted to share some of the things that I learned as a result of having gone through all of my experiences with the treatment.

With Quest-ioning Comes…Joy

Uncategorized

The Quest-ioning…

I don’t know if it’s just me, but it feels as if the last few weeks have just been a state of constant questioning for me. The other day Shauna, my fiancé, looks at me and asks if everything is alright and I just replied, “I don’t know, I feel like I’m questioning everything in my life. I’m wondering why I’m here on this planet, what is the purpose of it all if we are just going to die and then come back anyways?” And fully, from the depth of my “then-heart,” I was serious.

The last time I had such a state of questioning was after I was finally coming out of all my treatments from my bone marrow transplant. I had just watched The Secret and was questioning the nature of reality. I had finally found a documentary that forced me to understand myself deeper. That state of questioning led me down the rabbit hole and to the place I am now living. That quest led me to my true love, to understanding my purpose deeper, to being surrounded by successful and wonderful friends, to doing things that world renowned doctors said I couldn’t, and yet here I am back to that exact same quest.Awakening Quote

Quest-ioning Gets Confusing Doesn’t It??

As I hopped right back on this quest, I couldn’t help but wonder why I am right back where I started. As I write this, I am still wondering. However, each day I feel as though I am understanding more. I ask myself why I get up so dreadfully early to train clients, I ask myself why I exercise, I ask myself why I do anything really. And as I ask myself these quest-ions the only answer that keeps coming back to me is…JOY. It’s all for joy!

If you look at my Youtube videos, if you look back at my previous writings, I have been speaking about eternal Love and joy for as long as I have been doing this. And yet, here I am, as human as they come, quest-ioning everything just as we all inevitably do…confused as ever…supposed to be teaching others and yet at this very moment the clarity fails me.

AwakeningI Hear the Voice…

You see my friends, there is this voice inside me right now whispering to me, telling me to keep walking. This voice is reminding me that this is truly a quest, and ultimately the quest is joy. The voice is speaking clearly to me now, reminding me of my deepest purpose, to give love, to receive love, to BE Love. I wish I could explain this voice to you, but you already know it all too well. This voice is the eternal One, the infinite guide, the Great Speaker. This voice is the truth of my soul, of your soul, of our unity.

The Eternal Voice Speaks…

The voice whispers to me, “Be still my son, for you have journeyed as far as any other, you have come to the mountain peak, and as you continue on your journey you will find another. Stop for a minute and observe. My son, witness the beauty I that lays before you. You have gained a perspective unlike many, and this perspective confuses you. As you look outward into the valley you can hardly believe that out there, so far away, is where you have journeyed from. Your mind has a difficult time comprehending the magnitutde of your current height. But nonetheless, sit and witness all the glory that is yours. Look at how far you ha traveled, and remember that your journey is an eternal one, never to be found complacent because as this ends, another begins.

“Child, this place of quest-ioning is a natural progression of growth, time to reflect and accept how far you have come. Let the strength and understanding you have gained sink into the depths of your being, strengthening all aspects of your life. This height is a journey that all my children must make, and they will need a guide. Remember the path, be humble for you have ventured where few have asked to go, but many will seek to find. My purpose for you is to be the Love you know you are. My purpose for you is to recognize your passion and to follow that. As you have come to know, you are the creator of your life and I will support you in whichever decision you take, but I wish for you joy. I wish you take the path of freedom, of excitement, of enthusiasm, for that is the journey to your heart, that is the journey to Me. And do not be afraid to journey astray, for I will always guide you back, but ultimately you must choose to see it for the potential that lies within it, and see that wherever you are is a chance for joy.”Awakening quote Rumi, Rumi Quotes

The Quest is Joy…

My friends, our Inner Voice has whispered to me these words. We are all on our quests. We all have quest-ions about which direction our life is going and hopefully these words have eased your heart as they have eased mine. The world is a constant reminder to seek joy. The world is a constant reminder of that which we are emitting. We are creators, working in harmony with the Great Manager, that Presence which will always support us and be there for our highest good. Mirroring back to us that which is for our greatest development, and our current state of vibration. Continue to quest, continue to journey, but always remember that we are watched and guided, always.

All My Love,

Zach ❤

Why You Sound So Ignorant…

Uncategorized

Lately I have been speaking with my friends and clients, listening to their viewpoints, and seeing a lot of interesting posts on their Facebook page. Now I am by no means the most wonderful person in the world, nor the most enlightened. However, I feel that after having gone through chemotherapy treatment twice, a bone-marrow transplant, having seen numerous children die of cancer, and watching innumerable suffering, I have questioned quite a bit in my life. I have asked every seemingly metaphysical, life-affirming, in-depth question I feel that most of us will ask regarding the universe and life as a whole. As such, I have come to some conclusions about life. These conclusions seem to come and go in my consciousness, however they always drift back and remind me of the bigger picture. That is my preface to this little rant that you are about to experience, and if you are ready here…we…go…

I can not believe the ignorance that is spewed from some of the mouths of the individuals I know. I am always reminded by my guides and Angels of what Jesus said, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Although this may be the case, it is difficult to not sit and think, “Sweet heavens, you sound like a ranting and raving egocentric maniac!” It is as if so many of the people I know have not questioned anything in their lives! Even with some of them having had very traumatic experiences, they still see the world with blinders on.

Now I’m going to educate for a second and I’m about to get preachy, so take a sit and soak up as much as you feel resonates with you…

Look at the bigger picture…

Stop for a second and think of the earth. Think of the pictures that are taken from shots of satellites floating out in the ethers. Now sit with this for just a second. Think of what is holding the earth to anything else. Do you have your answer? Nothing! That’s right. Absolutely NOTHING is holding the earth to anything else because the earth is floating in space!!! No seriously, the earth is fucking floating in space! Now let’s go further with this. You are on this earth that is floating in space. Now the sheer fact that you don’t go flying off into the ethers is magical enough, however you have an unknown force that Newton called gravity holding you to the earth. Don’t critical think me to death here, just contemplate that. There is an unknown force literally pulling you towards the surface of the earth in order that you don’t go flying off into a pitch black space!

Now that in and of itself is miraculous! Not cool, a fucking miracle!!! Now let’s go further. Look up for your own satisfaction the nearest star to the sun. After you look that up try your best to even imagine what that means. Try your damnedest to really imagine what a light year even is!!! You can’t! That’s because your rational mind has no idea of the magnitude that is the totality of this thing we call life.

Let’s make it a little more personal now. Before you were an adult, looking at this screen, you were nothing. Technically, your body was an egg from your mother and a sperm cell from your father that magically came together to create an ovum, and your sexy ass started growing! But think about the process…you started as nothing, then 2 aspects of your physical body came together into a unified field (ovum), and started replicating!!! Can you contemplate that?! No, you can’t! You can’t possibly see yourself as nothing, that came together as something, and made what you call you!

The point that I’m making is that in your ranting about vaccines, or your complaining about not having enough money, or your fear of the republicans taking over, or your egocentric beliefs about religion, or whatever you think you’re right about, you haven’t even stopped to see the grandeur and awesomeness that is the world you live in, and the body you inhabit.

Now for the real lecture…;)

Found God, AwakeningRemember your Truth…

You are wholly, and truly, an extension of an unseen Source that throughout the eons has been called many things. That you, in your totality, not the body you think of as you, but in your spiritual essence, is Divinity. When I say that you can’t even conceive of what I am saying to you. But don’t let your rational mind intrude, just keep reading and let your soul remind you gently of your essence.

Do you understand that the whole universe has your back? Do you understand that you are not a body with a soul, but rather the thing you call your mind is the bridge between your soul and your body. Do you realize that you have been lied to your entire life by the media, by your books, by your teachers, by your parents, because they knew not of their Divinity either. Don’t you find it interesting how so many people idolize individuals who have come before, Jesus, Buddha, the awakened ones? Don’t you wonder why we so deeply crave that understanding and freedom? And don’t you find it funny how when someone shows you that, you immediately question everything they’ve said and claim them to be a liar?

Don’t be so egocentric…

Telling people they need to vaccinate their kids because you feel it’s right, telling republicans they don’t care about others and need to be taken out of the senate, calling the Christians and Muslims horrific terrorists, talking about how we need to protect our countries borders, blah blah blah blah blah! You sound so fucking ignorant in your limited mind state!! And in this moment I am no better than you, however I want more for you!

I realized last night why Jesus and Buddha and so many other masters won’t come forth and show themselves to the majority of humanity, it’s because we all have so much learning still to do! If you called on Jesus every time something went wrong in your life and used him as your own personal support pillar, you would never learn to stand on your own 2 feet! If every time you got scared you asked Buddha to show himself and come comfort you, you would never understand how to discern your own emotions and what they mean!

You sound so ignorant…

You sound so ignorant in your telling everyone they are wrong and you are right. You sound so ignorant focusing on such small, inconsequential “events.” You sound so ignorant believing the notion that you get one life and then you are dead. You sound so ignorant believing the premise that others may have some sort of control over your life and that you are not the complete director of your life. You sound so ignorant trying to change the world around you rather than fixing the insecurities within you. And lastly, I sound so ignorant asking you to change.

Life Coach Reno, Zach TavcarMy hope for you…

My hope for you is that you start to question every single fucking thing you hear. My hope for you is that you begin to accept every aspect of yourself and allow others to be as they will. My hope for you is that you challenge your mind, that you challenge your mind to grow. My hope for you is that you find the space within yourself where you are no longer scared of another’s actions because you know that that unseen force that is your True Self is protecting you. My hope for you is that you remember how powerful your thoughts are and the potential that they carry with them. My hope for you is that you smile at everyone and don’t expect one back. My hope for you is that you tongue kiss, a whole lot. My hope for you is that you have as much sex as you can, with a person you really love, and feel the ecstasy of being. My hope for you is that you get up and dance! Fucking dance! My hope for you is that you look deeper into your life and ask the questions that really matter. My hope for you is that you find love everywhere you go because you carry it in every step you take. My hope for you is that you live compassionately, not wanting to change anyone’s behaviors because you believe it true, but because they are wanting growth. My hope for you is that you seek kindness in every action and walk the path of understanding. Lastly, my hope for you is that you seek the wisdom of your own heart, knowing full well that that is where you find your Source, you soul.

All My Love,

Why I Am Always Happy…

Uncategorized

Recently I have been asked on more than one occasion why I am so happy. At first I thought, “Well, I’ve been through cancer twice as an adolescent, you’d be happy and positive too!!!” However, that got me to thinking why I really am so happy and positive. Why in the world do I look at this experience we call life so much differently than my contemporaries and the mass majority around me? As I thought about it, I came up with some reasons why I seem to see the world in a light that those around me find appealing.

First and foremost, yes, I went through chemotherapy, full body radiation, and a bone marrow transplant to rid my body of cancerous cells. And as much, as that was a horrific experience to go through, that was the absolute catalyst to diving deeper into the questioning that has led me to where I am. In addition to that, I witnessed children, and their families, from the age of 1 year to 16 years, suffer so immensely from having their body poisoned as the only viable option to eliminate cancerous cells from their bodies. Not only that, but the mental and spiritual toll it took on the children and their families was overwhelming. When you witness a 7-year-old suffer and die in such a way, you start to ask a whole lot of questions. As a result, you find a whole lot of answers. Here are mine…

I know without a question of a doubt that life is not happening TO me, but FOR me. I choose to look at life as if everything that is happening around me comes from the internal processes (thoughts, beliefs) that I am emitting. I don’t give anybody else control over MY life! I know that there is a Presence, you may call it God, Spirit, Source, whatever resonates with you, that is giving me whatever I am living for a prolonged period of time. I know that if I am feeling concerned, fearful, and mad, that what I am thinking and what I am wanting are in no way in harmony. That soon enough the results of the thoughts that cause me to feel fearful, concerned, and mad will manifest experiences that I will not enjoy. And so I choose the alternative.

I also choose to look at myself as the victor of my life. This may stem from the fact that my body healed after having been overcome with cancerous cells, but I know that my belief in the fact that I would survive and be completely healthy once again was the number one factor in my being here today. I know that no matter what, if I can change my thoughts long enough and therefore alter my beliefs, that I life will have no choice but to manifest the results of those thoughts and beliefs.

I also choose to look at myself as an extension of the very thing we call God. I see myself, and every other human, animal, plant, and thing as an extension of God, our Source. I see myself as having access to that Source at any time as long as I am willing to speak and ask. I know that I receive communication from God within an instant because that Infinite Presence is always with me, guiding me, protecting me, and truly the REAL me. I see this with everyone and therefore I have no pity for my fellow brothers and sisters. I know that each of us is the complete creator of our reality. I have no doubts about that. The abundance, poverty, health, illness, love, loneliness, is a direct result of the thoughts and beliefs we hold and the co-creative experience with our Source. In each of those instances we are either letting the overwhelming well-being that is the natural state of God to flow into our lives, or we resisting it.

I am always happy because I don’t see myself as infinitely small, I see myself as a divine being in human form. I am always happy because I see my life as a magical dance in which sooner or later I will manifest all the magic possible. I am always happy because I choose to see love, instead of fear. I am always happy because I choose to see potential, not incompetence. I am always happy because I choose to see that there is always a Light in the midst of the darkness. I am always happy because long ago I decided that I would live fully, to mess shit up, to speak my Truth, to ask questions, to listen to the voice within, and to look for things that I could be grateful for.

Do I do anything special that my family and friends cannot do? Absolutely not! However, I have done my best to habituate a way of choosing to look at this thing we life. I have reminded myself again and again that the magic is all around, but most importantly always within. In the scheme of the Universe, we are so small, and if I refuse to accept my place as an extension of Source, then I can have the same mundane experience as everyone else. However, if I can take my rightful place as connected always to you and the Infinite Creator, God, then I am free, then I have taken my place as the great masters before me have come.

I hope you will do the same.

All My Love,

Zach ❤
