A mind of awareness.

What is anxiety if not attaching yourself to thoughts obsessively??

What is mastering yourself if not keeping a mind free of anger and overthinking??

I once had a high school friend who invited me to a dinner with his family. I didn’t know where I was going really. It all started like a nice meal and gathering, but then it turned into a debate about politics, different political parties, different opinions. Everybody was preferring to argue about that than to keep it harmonious, cordial, friendly. And somebody got upset, started with the name calling. The other one followed. They had asked for my opinion, but I didn’t have one. Long story short, nobody enjoyed the meal.

Their minds were full of anxiety. And this happens to the best families, I know. And this happens to the best of us as well. And that is the stress created by following your controversial thinking, overthinking, trying to demonstrate that you are right and the other one wrong. This is the enemy. Your own ego. That neediness to feel superior and display your knowledge or your opinion of something. I just think this kind of behavior is what divides people. And the fact is that the state of your mind will dictate the way you experience life.

So, to me is really important the state of my mind. To remain aware of it. Specially with Christmas coming up. Specially with all the anxiety this Covid situation brings. Holidays, whether physically apart from family or not, are about joy, harmony, giving thanks for our lives as they are. Maybe your life is not perfect. Maybe you have a thousand and one problems. But I know you can find at least one thing to be thankful for. And our lives require it. Life requires our minds to be humble and intelligent enough to reject anxiety and seek peace. So our lives can improve.

Reconnecting.

Nothing is more hurtful and it brings more anxiety to your mind than to hold on to the past, to the loss, to the tragedy, to the injustice, to what did or did not happen. How can someone possibly be happy like this…?? No, you can pretend; but you can never truly be happy attached to your past. This is very personal, but at some point in your life journey you must stop your stressed, anxious and stubborn mind to see this, to acknowledge that you cannot heal if you feed your addiction to what happened.

Your path to healing is one of love, but you cannot fight yourself and struggle in the process; because if you do, you are just widening the gap between unhealthy and healthy. Widening the gap is to resist to healing, because you are attached to whatever hurt you, or to whatever you allowed to hurt you. This is what intensifies the hurt or the chaos in you. Can’t you see this…??

So, it is about reconnecting with yourself, with your happier self and the one part in you which is not attached to the past. You are responsible for this reconnecting. You can feel you need it. And in order to achieve it, you must detach from the old to build the new. We always talk about love, but love cannot truly exist in your mind if you remain attached to the hurt, to the loss, to the struggle.

Hidden miracles.

Life might shake us, but there is always a reason. Sometimes life tries to tell you something important, but your mind is too busy. Silence your anxious mind and listen. Learn. Grow.

I remember when my father had just died. The confusion, the anger, the fear and intimidation of facing the world without my father. I was alone with my little brothers and my mother. Barely making enough money to survive. Living in Texas, and in a place very different from where I’d been born and had spent my childhood years. But, after years and years of self-hatred and self-pity, I started to see a light in me. I was so exhausted of failing and torturing myself that I was pushed to observe my own suffering. I had never wanted this life, but I had to deal with it anyway.

Nothing that I did worked and, even worse, I didn’t understand why. I was going to church back then. I was praying. I was taking care of my family. I was a good and decent human being. I was lost. But this light I saw in me was growing. And, not too soon, I learned that quite often our minds are so overwhelmed with our own problems that we miss life. The wholeness of life. And the wholeness of life is where the miracles hide. The miracles are not in religion, or in family, or in the nation, or in the money we make; but they are in the observation.

The observation is the attention we put into life’s moments. But this observing action must be done firstly by silencing the mind. You know, by not being so attached to thoughts of misery and anger, and envy and frustration. Plainly put, by not overthinking and filling the mind with anxiety. Our minds dictate how we feel about life. Life then is filtered through our minds. Life will be whatever the content of your mind is. So, let go of the stress, and of the frustration, and of wanting to control and possess. Flow with life. Do your best, and then let it go. Let it be. Listen to life, but for that keep a mind that is silent and not arrogant. Arrogance and thinking that you must always win and have your way. This is what brings suffering, and failure, and tears into your experience.

Out of the rut.

I usually encounter people who talk a lot about their illness or problems, like anxiety, like OCD, like anger issues, like frustrations, etc. etc. They go on and on trying to get attention and pity from others. Specially social media is plagued by people venting their illnesses, problems, frustrations. But, unbeknownst to them, they are making their issues and frustrations more powerful; for the attention you give to thoughts makes them even stronger and assimilated by your entire biological system.

Assimilated by your entire biological system means that these thoughts of frustration and negativity become powerful feelings, and these feelings become your experience in life–i.e., your whole identity, or how you experience yourself. But, on the other hand, if you were to empower your positive traits, your talents, your dreams, your strengths, then you would become free and you would feel capable of being love and happiness.

With this, I am not saying you are not going through a rough patch, or that your traumas are fake; but I am saying that you should think and talk about your positives, to empower yourself, to not live tied to misery, and to not feel trapped and doomed. You define yourself by this. Your true identity is discovered only if you have courage to detach from the negative. Life is about self-discovery. You are life. I talk about this in my books very clearly, with many examples to help you understand this and thus change your mindset and behavior. Because I am all about this.

Nature of mind.

92052765_919046248528738_2401581382179487744_n

 

Keep positive.  Keep calm.  Seek your growth by cultivating a mind that is not anxious.  If the mind is anxious, then you won’t enjoy life.  If the mind is agitated, then you will not be able to go deep into life and find solutions to your unrest.

The nature of our minds is to always run, to always direct one way or the other; but in this very running we distortion clarity.  And we need clarity to find solutions and see reality as it is.  So it is rational and illuminating to remain self-aware of our own minds all the time, right…??  What do you think??

Freedom to love.

 

89958221_911439855956044_3374210003765297152_n

 

Even with our loved ones.  We cannot truly love if we do not love being alone with ourselves without anxiety.  Without envying the love in others.  Without resulting to desperation to possess others.

It is the whole point in my book, “I Always Loved You – Creatures of Eternal Love.”  And it is also something I have very clear.  Attachment is just a desire born from a lack of self-love.

Attachment is the need to belong and to possess, thus stealing the freedom from someone else and from ourselves.  You might say ‘easier said than done.”  But unless our minds agree to actually change, our behaviors will be the same always.  It has to be about self-development, self-improvement.

Pay attention.

 

mental-health-quote-hp-73-2

 

Be patient.  Be humble.  Be committed.  Stay on course and focused.  Don’t let negativity, loud and anxious voices in your head, and your stress, bring you down. 

Nothing can disturb you more than your own mind, so focus on self-discipline specially in the midst of hard times.  Keep your mind and body sacred.  Watch what you eat.  Be careful of what you allow into your mind.

Be mindful of your thoughts.  Pay attention to the time you give to others, because people can suck you into their dramas and anxieties.  In order to lead your life successfully, you must be self-aware at all times.

Awakening.

 

o

 

Your loss.  The troubles in your relationships.  Your struggle to detach from painful memories.  Your desires unfulfilled and obsessive which bring you that anxiety and frustration you carry.  It is all suffering, isn’t it…??  It is meant to be that way for you.  Do you truly realize that…??

If you really do understand why you suffer this, that all has a purpose, then learn from it, study the mechanics of that suffering, accept your weaknesses and do not make more excuses.  Awakening is a process you initiate when you become aware of your own garbage.

We all carry unhealthy habits, issues that are personal, garbage we have been carrying for long, things to better in our character and behavior.  But don’t look at others; look at yourself.  Change yourself!  Analyze yourself and accept your own garbage.  Accept and be humble enough to understand that you have to work on self-development.  Do not just agree or disagree here.  Do your inner work.

Awakening is about doing something to understand your own suffering and darkness, and as soon as you understand it then you can improve your life.  Period!  Wake yourself from your own slumber.  Don’t just read about awakening and repeat it like a damn parrot.

Not of your comprehension.

 

b984c52e5ef1f0d9d5bc6c4d5b77b76a.jpg

 

Quite often connections can be damaged beyond repair, in any relationship, whether romantic or otherwise, because one tends to think, argue, try to understand, and psychologically categorize the other person too much–sometimes with obsession.

But to love, to connect is to feel without words, without playing any psychological game.  Just to accept and be with someone else is enough to love, because love is not your effort, is not your demand, is not your belief or opinion.

I do not seek your comprehension


I do not want the world to know my feel,
For they would not understand the depth.
I do not seek your comprehension either,
For I just desire your tender eyes to observe.
Mine is an invisible seduction of the soul,
A passion which hugs your whole being;
But do not wonder what this means to you,
Do not imprison yourself in nervous thoughts,
Just lose your inhibitions and dance in bliss.
If you do not believe that the soul in love
Leaves the body in the agony of passion,
Then do not take your eyes away from me
And do walk to where I am without speaking.
When true lovers all around the world moan
They are telling our story without knowing it.
I am not who you see, but I am what you feel,
And what you feel is not to be understood;
For is not of your mind, not of your reason.

Neurosis.

Anger is anxiety at its peak, it is a very dark and low vibration, toxic energy and enemy of any clarity.  It possesses someone and shuts down the ability to rationalize and find harmony to enjoy life.

And it is so because it originates from fear, such may be a subconscious fear of not being loved, or of your beliefs being challenged, or others.

And people sometimes say that there is righteous anger; but the truth is that any anger transforms the mind, it brings violence, frustration, anxiety, dark thoughts to your mind.  So, how can anger be righteous…??

Something righteous by definition is something virtuous.  Now, something virtuous is highly moral, brings love to the mind, and peace to the mind.  So, is anger a virtue…??

You may not like what someone else does or says, or the way she speaks to you, or the way he treats others, or how difficult your situation is, or such and such life moment.  And this is fine.  We all have different personalities and reactions.

But it is your mind the one you must master so it sees this and does not create anger, because if the mind is anxious with anger you are the only one poisoned.  Poisoned because you lose clarity and harmony, and because you are now the puppet of that something or someone stirring the waters of your mind.

So, I can remain confident, clear, peaceful in my mind, and still react or behave in a better way to resolve a situation or respond to a person.  Always keeping a clear and rational mind is key to self-awareness.
