Everything and Everyone Is God in Disguise #godindisguise

“Fall on your knees. Oh hear the angel voices. Oh Night Divine!” Have you ever wondered why the song “#Oh Holy Night,” proclaims: OH NIGHT DIVINE? In a dangerous place where soldiers sought to kill the Christ child, Mary and Joseph found room in the inn, in the night, where the stars seemed to shine so brightly that they led the wise men to the stable.

Night or darkness metaphorically has always been an omen of death and danger. The Dark Night of the Soul is a time in someone’s life when he or she reaches bottom. Yet, it was in the dead of the night the Savior shined light onto the world, in a stable where no soldier assumed he would be born. The night and no room in the inn brought a palate of safety and obscurity, from which the painter found the perfect place for the anointing to brought to life.

As I look back into my own life for answers, I know that the darkest nights of my soul have always led me to my greatest epiphanies. In the #Tao Te Ching #Lao Tsu writes three beautiful paradoxes:
“The wise man is one who knows what he does not know.”
“If you try to change it, you will ruin it. Try to hold it and you will lose it” and
“The further one goes, the less one knows.”
From this same scripture we learn that the Creator gave birth to all light and life in the holy darkness.

The night holds mysteries unseen. Only those who sleep through the challenge of the day, walk in the night. I remember a time in life when I would take a 2-hour nap in the middle of Saturday afternoon, so that I would have the energy to stay up until 3:00 or 4:00 A.M. I don’t know if you had every done that, but certainly the challenge of the night took much energy. The busy sounds of the thumping disco beat, the bright indoor lights, the menagerie of bodies swarming close took energy I could only face with some extra sleep. In the night was always the place where alcohol, drugs, and sex seemed lead people from the consciousness of day into places they wouldn’t normally tread.

A few times, I woke up the next morning, hung over and sleeping next to someone I didn’t know. This is a scary thought now. But then, the intrigue of doing something that wasn’t allowed beckoned louder than my own common sense. I have had many friends have sex without a condom during times of blackout, get HIV or a sex-related illness. Some of them are already dead. Facing the night, not only takes courage, but it takes a clear knowledge of why you look for our treasure in the darkness.


New Challenge: Go to Week 6 of the “Year to CLEAR Challenge” at www.Bosebastian.com


Look for MY LATEST BOOK: “Finding Authentic You, 7 Steps to Effective Change” with a Year to CLEAR (C-larity, L-ove, E-nthusiasm A-nd R-elationship-Ready) on my Website in the Webstore. Thanks!

Below is information that I will be sharing for about a month, as not every person on my list reads the blog every day. If you have already read it, just skip over it. Thanks for understanding.

A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)

The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”

A Year to CLEAR Challenge!

The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.

My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.

As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.

The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.

The One-Year Approach to Change

No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.

Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”

In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.

Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.

Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
Step 5: Look at Your Past with Compassion
Step 6: Making a Strong Commitment to Change
Step 7: Dream Your Fabulous Future
