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.

Steering our lives.

We make choices each day, each moment, whether aware of them or not. We choose what to eat. We choose where to go. We choose how to spend our time. We choose what to think and what thoughts to let rule our thinking and feeling. Outcomes are then results of these choices.

One can believe that one was forced, pushed, made to do something; but, as grown ups, we steer our lives. Some choices we make in ignorance, unaware, and blinded by passions or fears. Some other choices we make knowingly, stressed, or fully clear on what we want. But the worst thing we can do to ourselves, which is exactly what most people do unconsciously, is to remain stubborn and blame others for the direction of our lives.

Life is your mind, meaning that we build our lives as we go. Of course, we might feel pressure, frustration, anger, and the rest; however, the truth still stands. And what is the truth…?? The truth is that our choices make our habits, our behaviors, and everything we experience. While you are reading this, you are probably coming up with excuses to blame your life on others. But deep inside you, you know the truth. Live that truth. Stop the excuses and self-pity.

Increasing self-esteem.

96740522_296332864718561_2246664351354191872_o

 

  • Self-esteem is acceptance first.  It is a process of love.  You must accept yourself first.  Don’t look at your past mistakes, troubles, pains.  Detach yourself from past shames and heartaches.  You are Now.  Focus Now.  Self-esteem is gained Now by living Now.
  • Belief in yourself means being yourself first.  It is about embracing your inner values.  You work on yourself and become strong.  As you become strong, you then start expanding your awareness and realize that you are all you need.  You realize your own inner values.
  • When you have started this process, you do not stop but continue building yourself.  This leads you to seek validation only from yourself, and you increase in self-love.  Now you can feel self-esteem and the belief in yourself increasing, and thus you enjoy life much more because you have become confident and do not rely on others.  

 


I seek to expand your mind and bring a deeper understanding into your life.  My non-fiction book about the dimensions of love, the feminine force, emotional intelligence, and other topics.  “I ALWAYS LOVED YOU – Creatures of eternal love.” Take a look:   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085JTQSPT/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

The illusion…

bb04fedff011022b9085b74d121c2fc7--deepak-chopra-fishbowl

-A thought is meant to be explored, analyzed, studied.  Don’t just follow thoughts, beliefs, ideas, opinions.  This thought will grow on you, create your feelings, create your character, and guide your choices and behaviors.  Realize this.

-A thought appears in your awareness.  What do you do…??  Knowing that this thought is there is your first clue to analyze it, without overthinking; just feel its presence, its motive and reason.  A thought makes you, makes your experience. 

-A thought begins everything in your life.  Life is but a thought which creates a stream of thoughts in your mind.  These thoughts create the world and all your experiences.  This thought is the illusion of this existence, but you must explore its content to be a better human being.

Experiences.

 

4Xjk3124

 

Its is a good reminder that each person lives in his own world.  Nobody, absolutely nobody, is the same.  Not even your sister, mother, friend, lover, husband.  You need to realize that people go through the roller coaster of emotions like you do.

Some are more conscious and awakened than others.  Some are more simple-minded and stubborn.  Different levels of awareness, consciousness.  So, in order to get along with everybody you meet and not lose yourself, you must stay with yourself.

Realize that your experience is not the same as another, even if you live in the same household. An experience is about your thoughts and feelings, not your environment; so we all have different experiences.

And childhoods are relevant in this as well.  Our past made the way we are.  Accept people for who they choose to be, and if you must then move on; but stay with yourself, do not get absorbed by another person’s drama.

Daily Interactions.

 

Each person lives in his own world, in his head and with his preoccupations; and when people interact with you, with the world, they do it under their own terms, based on however they feel and on what fills their minds at the moment.

Remind yourself that each person out there is like a robot, even though they may not understand why.  Each person obeys their own program, their own conditioning, views, beliefs, unique values; and they have been molded by their past, personal experiences.

Once you understand this truly, you will interact, initiate relationships, work and socialize with people and not get affected, irritated, angered by what they say or do.  Your mind will not be attached to them in any way.

Have in mind that you do have your own conditioning as well, but you probably do not see it in yourself as it is a subconscious behavior which may escape your awareness.  Allow yourself to be free from your own conditioning and from the conditioning of others.

Ponder deeply why something bothers you.  Study your thoughts and feelings about yourself and about people.  Internalize that which you meet in your relationships, the challenges and frictions, the difficulties and different views.  Don’t let it bother you and make you anxious, depressed, or disturbed in any way.

Critique on Morality.

 

iStock-497130111

 

What is morality…??  How do you know morality…??  How can you tell you are acting each time under moral values…??  Can it be that a human creature falters in this understanding due to a poor state of awareness…??  Conscience in man appears to be a precious commodity, rare, although famous in the racing and boastful mouths of people but dead in actual practice today. 

Conscience is not thought, obviously; for if conscience were thought then everybody would be highly conscious and aware of morality.  A thought is an illusion, a way to palpate the world and create our individual experience in its physical sphere; however, a thought is indeed how one can access every form of moral conscience, but even if man dares access this higher thought it is still an illusion because morality is only real if taken to practice, to behavior, not one time but each time and in each behavior–whether we like the situation we encounter or not.

So, conscience is a realm which is not found in the average thought.  The average thought is the content of someone’s mind, or the ego, which is past memories, past experiences, past educations and all ideas springing from the past (time), and based upon the past we conjure up a thought of the future, obviously.  That is what thought is, namely past and future–an illusion creating illusory worlds which only have reality as far as we, as the mind, are concerned.

And so, thoughts can ponder about this and that, and through it you may know right from wrong; but this is just the “shadow” or the small reasoning spewing from the realm of conscience.  Thought as the shadow of conscience, as the vestiges of morality, appears in your mind and says “this is good” or “this is bad”, or “do this” or “do that”; but, however, the ego, the influence of selfishness living in our minds, comes to you and says “do this as long as it makes you feel good” or “tweak your moral values a little bit so you get more self-satisfaction out of your behavior.”

4fc99f568d465c8280d90a8b4c504f00

These unashamed voices of the ego are always twisting conscience, and when conscience, when morality is changed or twisted IN ANY way, then there is loss of moral values, lack of morality and thus a corrupted conscience.  Humankind currently is asleep in this state, for people think they are moral because they follow thoughts of right or wrong which fits them, but they have lost themselves in the mentioned illusion and disgraced morality itself.

If conscience then is not thought, it is something beyond the human machine; for thought is the most important part of the human machine, or of the biological machine called a human being.  Thought structures and gives life to the human machine as long as energy from beyond the human machine keeps normally flowing into the realm of thought.  And thought contains right and wrong, this duality which is a construct of thought.

But beyond thought, the realm of pure conscience, the everlasting kingdom of morality, there is high intuition and awareness floating freely and without the abominations of space and time (thought); therefore, this high intuition and awareness, which is not infected by the duality of thought, is 100% identity and value dedicated to be mastered by the human machine with the result of true morality.

Having said that, the implications of the ego, of the human machine, are ever so threatening to the unadulterated development of this 100% morality as long as the mechanical mind stays in a state or poor awareness.  Lack of awareness then takes one to falter in understanding of what morality really is, and not only that but it creates the illusion of being moral due to choosing to do what is right and bringing self-satisfaction into one’s own biology.

Self-satisfaction is only good in the development of true moral values in the human creature as long as it does not blind you from global awareness of the whole human experience (universal humanity); however, as aforementioned, the ego tends to seek its own selfish motivations and “values” to do good, and thus in such cases one cannot truly know morality without a higher awareness bringing harmony and emotional openness to the mind and taming the passions of said ego.

Liberation.

 

index

 

Man is trapped by delirium, a sort of self-inflicted, narcissistic codependency which shrinks his awareness and critical thinking process in life–unbeknownst to him, of course:

-He feels empty and lonely, even though he might be surrounded by people.


-He feels he found the truth, even though all he does is go to a church or temple building and read scriptures written by some other men who do not know themselves either.


-He claims to be happy, even though he complains about his life and gets jealous and anxious all the time.


-He claims to be highly moral, even though he kills the environment just to fulfill his own pleasures and expects others to change but not himself.


Now, the ego is the content of someone’s mind.  You mustn’t desire to kill the content of your mind, for it is who you are as a human creature, thus your motivations, your desires to be better. 

You must seek to find these above-mentioned, toxic patterns within your ego, bring high awareness of its activity, and so change your behaviors accordingly; on the other hand, if you do not change your behaviors then you will repeat the same errors and patterns of failure and anxiety.

But if you do, only then, conscience is free from the extremes of the ego activity.  And only then, you can allow your mind to expand and enlighten itself with higher awareness in your behaviors.  And only then, Nirvana state of Buddha, or the Heavenly state described by Jesus can reside in the now highly moral person.

The Origin of Creation.

By living one’s moment in full, energetically and with determination, the present and the future may be reconciled, befriended, united in harmony.

Because the problem is that by being worried, stressed, anxious about an outcome or future, we are unknowingly dividing the present from the future–i.e., I ignore my present and imagine a future or possible scenario, and this duality brings some form of disorder and chaos in the mental plane.

This game of mental representation or imagination is truly pointless, because it steals you from the actual origin of the creation of a better future–i.e., the eternal moment you live now.  You unawares choose one false scenario and leave aside the real one.  How can this help you…??

In just a few instances this imagination, this mental representation can indeed help you prepare for a future or become acquainted with something that may indeed happen; however, most of the time, this is pointless, because the origin of the future is not the future but the present lived thoroughly aware.

Obsession, anxiety, excitement, attachment, expectation for something not yet here can have its poisonous effects on your very biology, not just on your psychological and emotional states but on your immune system as well.  All stress in time can turn out to be lethal.

50805313_623375748095791_2817863021395705856_n

The best thing you can do is to remain aware and planted on your moment, caring about what you do in the Now, working the best you can to build yourself and your life from the origin of Creation itself.

Beauty is in all things, from birth to death, from sunny days to an apocalypse, because beauty is the change which is brought by Natural Law; and this change creates evolution in existence, which goes far beyond the physical, of course. 
But for the human mind to respect and see the beauty in everything, the activities of someone’s rigid ego have to be realized, and in order to do this the mind must be clear of confusion, strict rules, dogmas, personal views and opinions, it must expand and reconcile with the whole of existence. 

For this, the mind must stay in the moment, reconcile with the Now, remain aware of what is currently happening–the experience whether pleasant or not. 🙏

Know The Infinite.

“And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation, neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!; for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” ~ Luke 17:20-21.
All life is, all the symbolisms in the holy books of the world and also in your Bible, all the angels, all the demons, all the dimensions and states of vibration–they are indeed in you, beyond that egoistical state of infernal descend which characterizes the mediocrity and ignorance of the superficial man.

The human mind and its capacity for greater awareness obeys the structural chemistry of the brain, and you carry out the actions to form your brain; therefore to build connections and synapses is to rule your life based on strategies for greater evolution–i.e., routine exercise, balanced nutrition, good and sound entertainment, study of elevating books, etc. etc.
These I have mentioned are some of the ways to structure your brain, to form greater capacities of awareness in the great lab of your physiology, of your being, ways to purify the mind from the world’s pollution; however, this is the start, for these are just mechanical ways to prepare the vessel/yourself.  These ways are the ways of observation, as such is the observation of the conscious structure of your brain and its chemistry.

44054619_566415220458511_8816369781855748096_n

Ascension, the Kingdom of God, comes not only with observation though; but with the formation of greater awareness, which calls for a great understanding of yourself, thus of the world and its symbols. You must live the Divine Word in yourself, in your everyday actions, and not just intellectually repeat it like a parrot; and so, this calls for an individual grace which does not belong to the world or to anyone around you.  You must seek, study, experience, and so guide yourself in the mystical truths; and all in order to ascend and know The Infinite within you.
