In Part Two, Nick continues his discussion with Paul Chek – who now talks about the spiritual world and consciousness….

00:44 Nick asks Paul “What is being human to you”

03:40 Paul talks about the Steiner Cross and the symbolism of it.

05:40 Paul talks about chakras and what they mean.

09:10 Human beings are capable of dealing with non-sensory information – complicated integration of physical and energy systems that has the capacity to travel out of their body.

11:31 Human being is capable of recognising that it is a product of the universe and has the power to create and destroy nature.

11:10 The more we use our minds to free ourselves, the more inspired we feel to share with everyone.

13:31 When a person realises they are their neighbours, plants chemicals – they have a sense of reverence for life – you are part of it, you can celebrate it.

14:40 Nick asks Paul – how can we understand the soul and who we are.

15:10 Only 4% of matter is what we pick up in the universe – the rest is pure energy. Unconditional love is consciousness itself.

18:00 The only number that is free of conditions is ZERO.

20:25 The soul is the consciousness within an individual.

22:15 Nick asks Paul – how do you know you’re in alignment with who you are meant to be and what you’re meant to do in life.

23:15 The heart is the organ that senses love – the heart is a compass so when you’re moving towards love you feel more alive.

25:25 If you follow your bliss, you’ll always get bliss.  If you follow the money, you’ll get money – but not necessarily health/happiness.

26:25 Can you look back on your life – all the jobs you had (that you didn’t enjoy) ended up to be a collection of skills that helped you achieve what you’re doing now.

28:40 A midlife crisis – when you get to the point that you’re on the top of the ladder, but you’re on the wall.

29:55 The definition of consciousness – a psychic substance that is intangible that is produced in living awareness of opposites.  

32:40 If you didn’t have challenges, how would that influence your willingness to grow spiritually – would you be inspired to go deeper into yourself.

33:55 Nick asks Paul – is the end ever there?

34:55 Relationships bring us to people that gives us different perspective on life.

36:10 When we’re challenged by something that stresses us – those stresses ultimately inspire us to look for answers that grows our level of intelligence and our capacity to understand others and love.

38:56 Anything that helps you outside your business helps you inside your business.

39:30 Ask yourself what would nourish me right now?  A lot of times it’s not that we’re bored at work, we just don’t have anything besides work to enjoy.

40:30 Nick asks Paul what he thinks happens when we die.

42:40 The vibrational consciousness – the lucid dream state.

46:32 We keep coming back until we reach a state – where we become one with the divine ocean.

46:58 Desire to live is so powerful that we keep wanting to come back.    

Desiring objects keep you on the wheel of life and death.
