ANCHORS AWEIGH

  • Anchors keep a boat from drifting away, and that is good for a short while. However if a boat is left at anchor too long, say for a few years, it becomes a derelict. Most of us put down our anchor in our image of who we are, the kind of relationships we will have, work we will do, when we are very young. We become attached to the anchorage, get rusty, afraid to move or change and miss all the fun we could have had exploring the world and ourselves.

    Remember this is the perfect result of our childhood training. We will only be free when we scrape off the rust, fix up the broken, eroded parts and put on two coats of anti-fouling paint. Then we pull up the anchor and sail into unknown waters on the greatest adventure of our lives. 

    Let go of who we think we are because that is a painted, wooden Pinocchio with strings attached to the puppeteer, wanting to be real. I switched metaphors, because this is really important. The real us is whoever we were trained to be. A baby is joyous, intelligent, diligent, focused and insatiably curious. Their perception is still undefined, so everything is a part of their whole being, something to be studied and experienced in order to know it. Start your retraining with that child within.

    Question everything and know our experience is unique and will be different in the next encounter, therefore remain fluid, in motion, without attachments (lines or anchors), like the universe we sprang from. We do have free transformational recordings that have helped countless people, Be Positive Audible Training. Try it you’ll like it.

      Nobody can do a better job than you. I am a sailor and I understand completely what you are saying. Thanks so much for such a great blog. Thank you for taking the time to leave a response and compliment. Love, Oracle Jai

      I've learn some excellent stuff here. Certainly value Anchors Aweigh. Moving constantly exploring and improving ourselves. I am surprise at the ingenuity and entertaining way you handle such important and sensitive topics. This is a such fantastic and informative web site.

      Thank you for your fantastic review. I am a sailor and know how exciting life as an adventure can be. May our lives always be an adventure. Love, Oracle Jai

      Simply want to say yоur article is as amazing. Thе clarity in yοur blogs is simρly gгeat and I would think you're аn eхpert on thіs subjeсt. You say you are a sailor and you know how people are. I love the idea we smear ourselves with anti-fouling paint. Well, I will register so I can keep up with your writing.   Thank you a million and please keep uр the gratifying work.

      Actually that is what retraining our automatic, programmed, instinctual beliefs are all about: those two coats of anti-fouling paint. It is great to be free of negative feelings, thoughts and deeds without fouling up the mechanism for being safe in an insane world. Our subconscious knows how to keep us joyous, loving, healthy, safe, wealthy and having fun. It knows just the place to sail too. By the way, I love the nickname Buster. It was very popular when I was young. Love, Oracle Jai

      This is the right blog for anyone who wants to break free of their confining paradigm and have an exciting life. You realize so much, its difficult to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic that's been written about for years. Great stuff, just great! バーバリー

      Thanks so much for coming back and commenting more. Love, Oracle Jai

      Loved your take on Anchors Away, cast off the training, sail into the unknown. Be Positive Now! I'm just now getting into it myself.

      Great, my writing is to inspire people to throw away their shackles that hold them back and sail with the wind. Sailing is about being part of the elements instead of in conflict with them, which is particularly difficult for men. Men are trained to be combative, in competition, winners and losers and that is a dangerous way to sail. Love, Oracle Jai

      It іs the bеst tіmе to make some plans for the future and pull up the anchor It's party time. I'vе гeаd thiѕ ρost аnd if I could really go sailing, I would. I need to make money first. However, I am in a dead end job so I should really go somewhere else or get another job. I am in a big city as well and that is only cool for getting drugs. Do you have some suggeѕtions? Maybe you сould ωгіte the next artіcle about where to find paradise. I want to read moгe.

      Please read more. Paradise is a state of mind. It is a symbol of ease, joy, health, wealth and having fun. However, I can suggest get out of the rat race, the big cities and find a small town in a beautiful spot and do something you like to do or learn a new skill, one the town seems to need. Read my blog on Think and Make Sense. That will help. If we do not know how to think, we do what everyone else is doing and cut down the chances that anyone will do well. Life is about having fun, love, Oracle Jai

    7. MacKenzie says:

      Thank you ever so for your blog Anchors Aweigh. I love the way you write. I have decided to cast off, instead of being a derelict. My life is a dead end, unfulfilling. I need the adventure you talk about being at peace, living in nature.  Thanks Again. Great blogs.

      I am a sailor, as you probably deduced and the best part of sailing was at sea, where I became one with the wind, sea and boat, The boat was the most difficult to suss out, until I became confident that it also was a part of the wind and sea. I would be sailing now and you would never read these blogs, except for 9-11. As much as I regretted leaving, I could see the benefit, for I began to write while I waited in Indonesia for Bush to get out of Iraq. When life shows up as a constant benefit, it is. Love, Oracle Jai

      Nice Anchors Away, cast off the training, sail into the unknown. | Be Positive Now topic you posted about. It's funny because my cousin and I were just talking about it the other day.

      About getting rusty, picking up the anchor and breaking away? Our entire society, civilization and parents are totally against it. They all relish more servants to be manipulated eventhough the overpopulation will destroy what keeps us alive. You have a great task before you. Just remember this is all made up. Reality is nothing like civilization. That is a superimposed illusion. Remove the cement and asphalt and see what you find.Thanks for the compliment and hope you break free. Love Oracle Jai.

    10. Glatzel says:

      I really liked your blog post. Really Cool. I liked the way you illustrated our life with casting aweigh the anchor.

      Thanks for your comment and coming to read. Love, Oracle Jai

    11. Emelia Realbuto says:

      My dream retirement just includes that I am able bodied enough to enjoy it. I suppose I'd just like to live by water.

      Me too. Healthy, joyously doing what I love to do and have whatever I want to have. Living in paradise is simple and we need so much less than people think they need in a civilized world. Love, Oracle Jai

    12. Google says:

      Google…Anchors Aweigh is an extremely fascinating post. We like the way you present your material.

      Thank you and I have been meaning to change the spelling of Away. You would think as a sailor I might know how to correctly spell it. Thanks, Love, Oracle Jai

    13. Clemente Demski says:

      I really like this web site. Anchors Aweigh caught my eye. Well written and I definitely need to take an adventure in the wild instead of sitting at a computer all day. You definitely have beneficial articles. Thank you for sharing with us.

      You are welcome and I heartily agree on getting a lot of adventure in your life. I need to do that as well. Good advise, Love, Oracle Jai

    14. Ian says:

      Typically, to have the ability to qualify for the boat loans which has a prime lender, you'll need to possess a near perfect credit history and possess no late payments inside the last two to several years. The lender may ring you or perhaps your employer to complete cross check references. It is important to be truthful.

      I recommend only using cash. Never beg, borrow, lend or steal money. If you want a boat and do not have friends that can help pay for it as part owners, then crew on other people's boats. It is a wonderful and cheap way to see the world, have incredible adventures and if something happens, the owner pays, not the crew!!! Love, Oracle Jai.

    15. Rachel says:

      Have you ever considered creating an eBook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

      Thanks for the offer. Why not just copy the post and print it on your site? If it is too long, edit out some of it. I want everyone to change their negative thoughts to positive ones. I try to use only positive statements, meaning I try not to use not, don't, should and shouldn't, must, etc. It is difficult because the negative is such a part of our language.

      Spread the word. If we remain as we are we will become extinct for lack of oxygen, clean water and nutritious food. Global warming is just a red herring to keep us from doing what is really necessary right now. Stop living in the insane civilizations, supporting the money guys. If you are behind that movement keep it up. Love, Oracle Jai

      Greetings from Idaho! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love sailing, did as a child with my Dad and brothers. I really like the way you handled Anchors Aweigh. I am ready? I can hardly wait to get home and read more. I'm surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G. Anyhow, superb site!

      I love sailing too. I just did it, rented out my house, had $400.00 a month and the captain took $200 a month for me to be crew. I did not need more. Then I sold my house and bought a boat. I am now living in Paradise, just like I recommend everyone do. Life is about having fun and loving it. Love, Oracle Jai

    17. Mulgrew says:

      I am so grateful for your blog post. We do get stuck in the same job, relationship, a routine that is not what we want but think we must have.  I would love to take an adventure on a boat like that. I will read more on how we get free to do this. Really Great.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. We want interactive readers that are stimulated to make some changes in their lives.

      I had the opportunity to sail on a tall ship once but after looking the crew over, I decided not to. I was sailing my own 38', cutter-rigged sloop by that time. I liked the captain and he gave some great advice on the trip to New Caledonia, in the South Pacific. He told me to sail hard on the wind , otherwise I would miss the entrance and sailing down to it was nearly impossible.

      There were four other yachts sailing at the same time. They did not believe the Captain and had a nice easy sail to new Caledonia but were unable to sail around to the port of entry, Noumea. I did as he said and he was right; we barely made it. You can be free, it just takes the desire and 100% commitment. Love, Oracle Jai

      Major thankies for the article. Keep writing.

      Cute News, Many thankies for your comment, Love, Oracle Jai

      I check your blogs on a regular basis because your humorous hard hitting style is awesome. Anchors Away is so appropriate to tell us we are rusting away living the same day in the same way over and over again. I need to break out of this dreary life and get some excitement but I have commitments and obligations. How can I?

      We have to love ourselves totally completely, know we are perfect and really can have a happily ever after. Be your loving parent. Compliment yourself all the time. When we love ourselves unconditionally we leave what is distressing and depressing in our lives. Could be a spouse, job, family, place, anything we put there to give us the miserable life we have now.

      Our main obligation is to our joy, love, health and prosperity. We may have designed our life to avoid all those aspects. We have children and make them like us. Ergo we still have poverty, misery, war and insanity. The more people who leave that life behind and strike out to love themselves, the sooner the negative will disappear. Try it, you'll like it!! Love, Oracle Jai

      Terrific, please return often, Love, Oracle J.

      • Yoloundra says:

        Good article, and it made we ponder what I find important and what makes me stay at a company. Being appreciated, and having room to develop is certainly part of that. I like a clear alignment to a common goal and people feel that they are able to contribute to achieving this goal; a clear work-life balance. If I feel this will not change at the company then the only choice left is to leave.

        This is a set up because we are out of control. Throw away the set up, throw out the goals. Work for yourself, contribute what you love doing. We need to change ourselves to change the system, love your kids unconditionally and when they are of age to get fixed. Having a family and adding to the overpopulation must stop now. Society is for the few who control it. The rest of us, including you are mere slaves taught to think common goals are worth your life. PS I had to shorten your comment to what was revenant.Thanks for the comment, Love Oracle Jai

      I needed to thank you for this wonderful read!! I certainly loved every bit of it. I certainly do not want a rusty anchor or lose my youthful vigor. I have you bookmarked to check out all your posts.

      Thanks for your wonderful comment. Diversity is the name of the game of life. Have fun, Love, Oracle Jai

      Does your blog have a contact page? I'm having problems locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an email. I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

      Honey if you have a suggestion, then make it, right here on the post of your choosing. Hint: when talking to another, use compliments. Negative comments are a turn off and turn down. Contact is on the side bar where it would be. Love, Oracle Jai

      Thank you! Oracle J.

    25. Melia says:

      I am so impressed with this internet site. You have really important and wonderful posts here. There is something for everyone. I am an enthusiastic sailor. My family has always been into sailing. I loved this post and I know Ralph Waldo Emerson was right when he said "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." In life we must move and change or we become stiff and rust away having never done anything enthusiastically. Loved the way you put it and I am reading all your posts for they are very entertaining and insightful.

      Thank you for this impressive and wonderful comment. We love compliments so be sure you continuously compliment you and others. I loved sailing and have many stories for I too was learning how to change and become the person I desired to be. Love, Oracle Jai

    26. Nouveau Maillot says:

      Great blog! the information you provide is quite helpful, why  was I not able to see this sooner? We are afraid to step out, deviate from our plan, our parent's and societies' plan. Easy to say but how do I stop the fear? Anyway I've subscribed to your feeds, keep the good work up.

      Thank you for the compliment and please keep coming back. The fear, ah yes, we learn to fear so we will stay put and be the servant of the almighty dollar and those who control the money. Fear is unknown in animals. They are trained what to do when threatened. Could be to drop to the ground and be very still or dash for cover. Fear makes us immobile, defenseless and vulnerable. We made it up so we could control others with it, like our parents used it against us. You know Santa is not real, well, neither is fear. Live in reality and fear disappears along with wrong, bad, superior, inferior and ugly. Love, Oracle J.

    27. Trich says:

      Alll of the posts you write are astonishingly genuine. How long have you been writing these posts? Your piece on anchors aweigh really did flip my brain. Nice bit of writing and the message is quite clear. I would like to get away to paradise or some other wonderful place. Nevertheless at this time I feel I have to stay in the city where there is work. I am truly not too comfortable with leaving my anchor in the rocks a bit longer. I try to reconcile my desire with the problem, which I gress is fear. I notice how easy your visitors talk about their questions and feelings. That comes with such a nice place with such easy, natural sounds to spend some time thinking. Quite nicely accomplished. 

      Thanks for commenting. and you are right. It is it fear that keeps people from enjoying life, trusting themselves to know the beneficial thing to do in every moment. Keep smiling and laughing, love and cherish yourself now. Love, Oracle Jai

    28. Bea says:

      My wife and i got quite cheerful that Louis managed to complete his course assignment using the ideas he obtained from your own weblog. It is surprising to find a site that just happens to be giving away tips that most people would have been trying to sell. Therefore, we consider you are a friend of the world and want to save it.

      We want you to know we greatly appreciate this. The pictures and natural sounds illustrate your love for this planet and even perhaps us.  The menu is easy to use and the writing excellent. Our son has a much greater appreciation for the natural way than before and that is really fundamental. Many thanks for all!

      Many thanks for your comment and we wish all the best for your son and for you being such understanding and loving parents. Love, Oracle Jai

    29. Demi says:

      Great pieces. Keep posting such kind of info on your blog. Im really impressed by Anchors Aweigh. I would love to sail, see the world, moving around in my home. What a life. You've done a fantastic job setting up this exciting blog and love the sounds. I definitely dig it and will insist that my friends and family go to see and read it. We will all benefit from these posts. They talk about our most pressing problems in such a way that they seem to disappear. This is my best site on the internet.

      Thanks for giving one of the best comments. When I sailed, I became one with the wind, sea, the boat and me. That is the only way to experience sailing. Men rarely do anything like that. The take it as a challenge and compete. What fools to miss the greatest experience of all.

    30. Salina says:

      Thanks in favor of sharing such a pleasant thinking. Anchors Aweigh is a lovely illustration of why we must get real. I am excited to read the rest of your posts. You must have a very exciting and enjoyable life.

      Thanks for the pleasant comment. You notice the comments further the post in a charming way. Thanks for your addition and yes I follow my advise, knowledge and love myself without conditions. Love, Oracle Jai

      Very interesting topic, regards for making your position so clear and enjoyable. When I have enough money saved up I want to pull up my anchor and also go sailing, explore the world we are so consistently destroying and I won't need a trillion to do it. Why would anyone ruin their lives, their country, their world for a trillion dollars of fake money? They could kick back, lay in a hammock, drink margaritas and relax on their own island all day, forever with all kinds of beautiful women about.

      Good observation that is why I stress loving ourselves and not having children until we do. We are raising children who look for love in all the places they will not find it. Love exists only inside of each of us and we have to make it. I went sailing when I only had $400.00 a month and the captains wanted me to pay for being their crew. To get me, they had to be willing for me to only pay for my share of the expenses, no more than a hundred. That was enough until I bought a boat!! What they say is right. "A boat is a hole in the water that you pour money into." Love, Oracle Jai
