It has been a few days since I have last written anything. I have been busy with my new home and getting the little things sorted. It has been quite a journey.
Every day I have been contemplating on that I need to write on my blog but due to my late nights, I was not able to commit to writing. Although, my heart was completely in making sure I could get some time to write.
This week has been about decisions and choices. The choices that we make on a daily choice is aplenty. We constantly have to decide on a choice and stick to it. The joy in choices and decisions is really the illusion that we are completely in control when really are not.
The choice to love is less a choice and more the natural way. If you are living according to your natural way of living. It appears without any true effort. It is the only way your soul knows how to be, however the pre-requisite is that you know and live as your soul.
I will keep this short and maybe have something a little longer but try and be aware of what is the natural way for you.
Today I was thinking about if we perceived human beings on a cellular level then we may find our uniqueness in oneness and unity. Sometimes, we get fixated by the external features so much that we forget that we are all the same. We all have this awareness within us that we are more than the body and the mind because we can observe both.
If we saw people as Bruce Lipton says ‘a community of trillions of cells’ then I feel we will see beyond superficial differences of creed and beliefs. We would put them aside and understand that love is the only thing that will bind us together.
Simply put in this blog post, I just felt like I could really appreciate life all around me, the people, nature and the universe itself. I have this overwhelming emotion of how lucky that I am to be alive on a planet that is billions of years old. What is even more amazing is that I have written this and you have read it and made it your own.
Another week has gone by and here I am writing another blog for you all.
It has been a strange week for me. Let me guide you into why. There are moments in my life when I remain a little silent. Take everything in. Be one with everything. I just watch things instead of interpreting them and the result is phenomenal.
There is sometimes a glimpse of this emptiness, this void or this formless and I wonder what covers this empty space. A few moments seem like hours when I just stare into it and wonder what is there? Is this emptiness staring back at me wondering the same.
Stop! The mind has started to interpret again!
This is when you pull back and realise that you have lost being the witness and the exploration has stopped.
People ask me sometimes about how they can deepen their meditation experience, I say concentrate on actual nothingness. Close your eyes and explore the inner darkness. It seems scary, sounds scary but it is very liberating when you enter the realm where there is no top or bottom. Where you cannot crash nor bump into something. I have to admit that sometimes when you are looking into the inner darkness, there is a possibility that visions enter and memories start to appear. The best solution to get rid of them is to watch them, without judging them, without interpreting them, just watch them fleet by. I used to have some graphic images, some of my past lovers, some of my family, some of my friends and they were disturbing. You need to be mentally strong and if you can pass through that storm then consider the journey has not got long until it comes to a feeling of completion.
This is the journey for every individual. It is not about finding God or enlightenment, just finding your inner self. I can go on and on about how I disagree or agree with religion or likewise, with atheism but these things are personal for me. What is universal is that truth within the centre of your being, if you can be present in your life, then great things will come your way.
Have a little faith and trust in your self. Take the journey into the inner self. Enjoy everything material in this world but find your centre of being that is immaterial. Call it a soul, call it god, call it nature, call it presence, call it energy, it does not matter what name you give it. It is intangible. You cannot put a value on this and this is why I ask you to experience it if you wish to.
I can certainly say that meditation brings a lot of peace and eventually leads to contentment. If you are truly religious then you will know the past spiritual teachers like Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu, Christ, Rumi, Nanak, Kabir have all said to ‘know thy self’ and this is what meditation is. The practice is simple, close your eyes, be aware of your breathing and let things be natural. If I tell you what should happen to you after that then I will be forcing my experience onto you. I rather that it becomes a discovery for yourself. If you feel that you cannot carry on, just carry on being aware of the breath. Let it all lead back to the breath if you feel a distraction. But do it with the energy to enjoy it. Don’t be serious about spirituality. That is the biggest mistake to make. Practice meditation with joy!
Don’t let go of the opportunity to know your self! Not one single human being has known Existence (God) without knowing who they are as an individual. If you want inner peace then you have to go through the chaos of the ego. You may have to be rebellious with your ego but that is the only way you are going to transcend it.
What I am saying here does not belong to any religion but is the essence of all religions. That is my truth. What is yours, discover it for your self!
