Just be instead of letting others define us

​We should never pay attention to what others say about us as it is a disease. The other will always drive us crazy . And in reality who are these others and why are we so much interested in them? They drive us crazy and we drive them crazy because we are the other to them. Why do we need to pay so much importance to others’ opinions? All we need is to pay attention to our own experiences and remain true to our own experiences. If we feel good in being serious, it is okay , if we feel we have become quiet and silent and still through our own practice of witnessing, why then be interested and why be disturbed by what others say?

But seeing deeply we will find we are not confident, so we keep on gathering the opinions of others. First we need to accept however whoever we are and slowly we will start becoming alert of the facts held within us and one day everything will disappear. Just like a dream, everything will disappear and we will be awakened. This awakening is not a practiced thing; this awakening is not cultivated. This awakening is our intrinsic nature, our basic real nature. It will be only erupted when we can wait patiently and watch, and don’t create any problems. We need to always temember this as a very basic thing: don’t create problems. don’t create problems….

Just BE.

Either misery or happiness 

​Emotions are neutral, they are not good or bad ,it is all our mind which judges them. It is our mind that makes us feel guilty or wrong for having certain emotions, but the emotions themselves are not wrong. 

Emotions are simply different expressions of energy. That is how life is. We need both negative and positive energy or we will never know the importance of the one and life will become dull and boring .Emotions are not harmful, unless we get identified with them. And the identification happens through the mind.  Once we acknowledge this reality we will always have a choice. We can either get lost in the reason why, the story, the justifications –the whole mind-fuck about what is wrong with us and start blaming self. Meditation allows us another alternative as with the help of meditation we can separate the emotion from the story the mind has created around it. We can note that, ‘This is the mind’, and let our mind chew away on the drama without giving it too much energy, as if it was an old nag droning on in the corner. And we can put our attention instead on the physical sensation of the emotion itself. If we have the emotion of been sad or feeling sad the first step is to acknowledge that yes, ‘sadness is there’ and have it in the knowing that this is quite a different thing from saying ‘I am sad’. Then we need to allow the sadness to be there, as an energy, without judging it or trying to reject it. It is, after all, just an energy, and energy is always neutral.This is not about indulging ourselves in the emotion – indulgence means being caught up in the mind fuck, the reasons why. The victim story. We need to feel more and more – what the sensation of this energy is and where do we feel it in our body and then move our attention from the mind to our body. If we blame someone, then we are missing the point and denying our own energy. Taking responsibility that ‘this is my reaction’, also gives us the opportunity to see what belief in our unconscious mind caused this reaction,this energy, to arise. Which bit of our ego felt hurt or lost or afraid ?

Let the wound disappear with our awareness 

​It is always we who carry our own wound. With the ego, our whole being is a wound. If we deeply see nobody is interested in hurting us, nobody is positively waiting to hurt us as everybody is engaged in safeguarding their own wound. No one has got the energy but it still keeps happening because we are actually eagerly ready to be wounded like just waiting on the brink for anything.

Only when we become like Tao (means religion, means nature ,means form. The Supreme Law of Existence is Tao. ) There is in reality no wound for him as he is healthy, healed, whole.The word whole is beautiful and the word heal comes from the whole, and the word holy also comes from the whole. He is whole, healed, holy.

We need to be aware of our wounds and we need not help it to grow instead let it be healed and it can only be healed when we move to the roots. The less the head, the more the wound will heal; with no head there is no wound. The best way to live is living a headless life. We must move as a total being and accept whatever comes and happens. 

We need to practice it daily for some days, the whole 24 hours we need to be in total acceptance, whatsoever happens. If someone insults us or what we say hurts us we need to accept it and not react to see what happens. The mystics say suddenly we will feel an energy flowing in us that we have never felt before. Let us try and be aware and with each of us doing this we will create only Love and Compassion and Happiness in this world of ours for this wonderful life journey.

The Wolf me 

Swiftly traveling through the journey of life ,

Howling to a new tomorrow.

As I explore the unknown with eagerness ,

And adapt to the new environment each moment .

No more weak I am,

Never back down on the journey .

Leave my mark for myself to know ,

I lived life, I enjoyed life.

The lone wolf I know no home,

As the whole world is my home now.

In a forest which seemed to be filled with competition,

I no more am running into it .

As I came to knowing ,

Life is not a competition .

Life is a mystery to live,

Forgetting that I need to solve .

Was missing it as I had attitudes ,

Dropping each one day by day .

Dropping the knowledge , conditioned in mind ,

Knowing by living all will be known someday.

Let go excuses if you want something 

If something is important for us, we will be blessed as Universe will find a way for us and if we just think and let it go we will always have excuses. If something is important to us and we haven’t found a way, we should not give up…we must not just accept that it’s not important to us if our gut tells us that it is, but we need to  look at where we might be spinning stories, creating excuses for ourselves. If we take responsibility that our excuses may be the only thing between us and our dreams we will always be surprised at what we can change in our life.

Peace is within us… It always was, it always will be. 

The moment I become still and careless to seek for peace, peace seems to wrap me in its arms. All I know now is what I was seeking outside is within me. Peace is my intrinsic nature and it has always been with me, only my trying to find it outside made my journey miserable. When earlier I was left on my own I felt lonely but now when I am left on my own I am alone. When I was lonely it was miserable moment but as I am alone now I see, breathe, feel peace. 

The more I am been blessed with peace from the light within me I see it is the beginning of freedom ,I see a new being is been born and I trust this being is the authentic man the mystics talk about. As I am peace I am full of more awareness and I can live in moment-to-moment as I can see all the situations more clearly. There is no problem at all in life, there is nothing to worry about what is wrong and what is right. All is love, all is Peace. “

Enjoy life as it is…. It is perfect 

​Life remains the same whatsoever we try do. It is already perfect , it cannot be improved upon. The very idea of improving it is egoistic ,it is the cause of our misery. We need to enjoy it rather then wasting our time in improving it because even if we try to improve it we will feel helpless, obviously, because we will be failing again and again, falling short. “AIS DHAMMO SANANTANO”, Gautam the Buddha has said: This is the way things are. Whenever people used to ask him, “How can we improve upon things?” he will always say, “AIS DHAMMO SANANTANO.” There is no need to improve, there is no way to improve.

The Isa Upanishad also says AUM ,that is perfect, that is whole. This is perfect, this is whole. The whole comes from the whole, the perfect comes from the perfect. Therefore “everything is as it should be”

This is one understanding we need to have which Buddha calls TATHATA, suchness. The rose is rose, the marigold is marigold.

The first thing is a deep, total acceptance of things as they are. Then our life will enter into a different dimension – the dimension of joy, celebration – because now the whole energy will be available to us so that we can dance, sing and just “BE”. We don’t need and try to improve because doing nothing is the best thing but it does not mean that we become inactive. It simply means we don’t make any effort to improve upon things, we need to simply relax. 

Forcing is doing but when we feel sleepy and sleep that is not doing but if we are not feeling sleepy and we force ourselves to go to sleep, that is doing, forcing. 

The mystics say eat when hungry, drink when thirsty, sleep when sleepy. Let go! Don’t try to struggle, don’t make life a conflict. Enjoy it! 

When we are living life this way each moment is precious and we will never feel helpless and we will never feel that nothing is getting better, because we are not expecting it to get better. It is already the best world that can be, the most perfect existence that ever can be. We need to accept we are just a small part of it we are just a small ripple in the infinite ocean and how can we want to improve upon the ocean. We need to simply Relax.

Hello, why me 

who will I seduce
whom shall I love
they come bringing smiles
leave me gifting tears
each time I heal myself
ready to make me into two
they along with the Source
plans a different game
hello first time I shout
I am a human too
inside me is also a heart
which feels pain and hurt
I too have emotions in me
tears do roll of my eyes see
please don’t take me for granted
I give my cent percent when I love
stop playing with this self
it cries everytime you go
what if it wishes to love
in return it will love you


Gratitude…. Gratefulness 

Good morning to the Universe, Source, Nature, Thee and to all the amazing awesome souls. 

When we can see and be aware and in the moment we are capable of feeling grateful for both pain and pleasure, without any distinction, without any choice knowing that whether we like it or not we will know that it is for our growth because in the Universe nothing happens without a reason. Once we allow this idea to settle in our heart, then each moment of our life will be full of gratitude. Let us all let it become our meditation and our prayer, thanking Source /God /Thee for everything, whether it is smiles or tears, happiness or sadness . When we let this be our nature for the very first time a miracle will take place as silence will start arising in our heart, and this silence is Bliss, the miracle. Bliss is our intrinsic nature let us all have it and spread it.
