Omar is a being who practices what he preaches. He “walks his talk” and in this podcast, as in many of his podcasts, he starts the conversation with gratitude; gratitude for the reviews that people write, gratitude for the listeners of his podcasts and gratitude for his readers. In practicing gratitude, we receive ‘more’ through our focus on the goodness that we have received. Creating from a place of gratitude and Joy sets the stage for more of the same. 


The focus, however, of this podcast is recognizing the difference between ‘belief ‘ and ‘knowing’. What are the distinctions between the two? Which is more powerful? 


In Omar’s words, “belief involves an equation and anything with a equation is one step from the 

Truth.” We meet someone who is powerful, popular, has healed us or in whom other people place their belief, and for those reasons we start to accept, without question, what that particular individual has to say about everything. We denounce or ignore the relationship with our own Innate Guide who is the one true guide for each of us. The equation is basically this: Because _______________ therefore____________. Omar gives as the example: Because mindfulness is good for mental and physical health, I will practice mindfulness. There is truth to the formula that mindfulness IS good for your health, however, only actually having the experience of mindfulness will lead you to Truth. It is a belief. Even basing your understandings on ‘proof’ and statistics, is not knowing. It is only in actually practicing mindfulness that you will know the Truth of this belief. 


Arguments are not knowing. Arguments are the language with which the mind speaks. They can lead to Truth, but they are not Truth. Truth ~ Knowing ~on the other hand, is profound. It is deeply profound. It goes beyond words. It comes from within, and there is nothing on the physical plane that can change your mind about it once you have experienced it.  It is felt, tasted, heard, seen, touched ~ sensed from within. It does not come from outside of you. 


In summary,  Omar defines ‘Belief’ as the equation ‘because. . . therefore, ‘Faith’ as a state in which the heart starts to open making it more receptive to receiving Truth, and ‘Knowing’ as going beyond words. This is why Omar practices in the way that he does. He is a clear channel who opens himself to creating a pure space of Awareness allowing energy to flow so that Intentional Beings can receive insights or knowing. It is when we are aware that we are one with Life and that we prioritize the relationship with our own Innate Guide, that we can change everything in our lives. 


How will you know? Go within. Your knowing lies within your own being.
