My experience with meditation

In my own experience with meditation. Take it easy. Don’t rush into an outcome. Don’t expect great results fast. The main things are commitment, persistency, patience. These are a must if we are serious about meditation. Now, this is about the kind of meditation where you focus on your breath and in time you increase you’re awareness. Many people sit on a chair, peacefully; and for them this is meditation. I respect that. But that is not what this post is about. For me, meditation is all about increasing self-awareness, creativity and cognition, and also easier detachment from all suffering–like anger, frustration, the thought of death, society’s influence, etc.

So, meditating. When I started, more than 10 years ago, this was very difficult for me. I had rage issues and became really anxious and bothered when I first started to feel the deep silence of meditation. Thoughts and feelings which had been buried deep inside had started to come out, and this was very disturbing, it was hard for me to face them. Once you truly meditate, your thoughts will rush. Your innermost troubles and burdens. In my case, this really irritated me–physically, psychologically, emotionally. But I stuck with it through the years and saw myself awakening, I witnessed my creativity improving, and my understanding of myself and my own faults mainly became clear and undeniable. This made me change and become superior to the person I was.

But, let me be honest here, meditation is not a quick fix, or a cure-all, not in any sense; and whoever tells you it is, might be because they’re trying to sell you something. One thing to have in mind though, you will see improvement if done right; however, not judging here, but you must understand that many people frustrate themselves because they do not do it right. It’s all about your slow breathing. Focus on it. Because breathing is what connects the state of physical life to the state of physical death, so to master your breathing in meditation gives you greater access to wisdom to understand both states of existence. If you deviate and become distracted, come back to it. Come back to your breath as many times as you become aware. This is practicing awareness, when you come back to your breathing. Meditation is not about becoming perfect or doing the practice perfectly; but about committing and not quitting, it requires inner strength and focus. So, never quit. Keep going.


And, of course, let’s nourish our brain cells and stay bookish. I’m an advocate for good reading. So, check out these promos:

Keep on moving

It’s easy to become frustrated and angry with others, with life and with ourselves even. You try your best and it doesn’t come out the way you expected it. Or you put effort, time, desire into something; but at some point things begin to fall apart. Well, it is frustrating indeed; but, frustrating or not, your duty is to observe and learn. And let’s not make excuses. There is always something to learn. Sometimes we don’t want to accept it, or even recognize in our minds that we failed at something; but the truth will set us free, and it shall also help us become better in life. Hurt, pain, disappointment, frustration. These are there for a reason. Don’t drown in sorrow, but be patient and humble enough to see and study that reason.

A series of small steps. Daily. Life is all about small steps. That is how love, happiness, success is experienced, felt, embraced in you. Don’t be impulsive. Don’t think you can’t. Start with the small things. Don’t just have in mind the big picture, but have in mind the small steps that’ll get you where you want to be. It’s about commitment and enjoying the process of self-transformation. For years, I couldn’t see this. Heartbreaks. The death of my father. Financial problems. And many more things made me feel like a failure, and not even able to look forward and claim a better future. But slowly, through much hardship, I learned that life is all about determination and purpose. It is about taking daily the small steps towards my goals, towards what I want.

And for this we need patience and much more courage. Courage to see through our own sorrows and hardships. Courage to deny the negative thoughts and feelings we may have. Courage to stop following the rest and paying attention to the opinions they carry of us. Because in order to better your life, you must better yourself. Day by day. Slowly. Committed to change your thoughts, your feelings, your behaviors in life. You have to focus on a new purpose, on something which brings you passion, and a process of self-transformation. You want something, and the secret to getting it is in focusing on the small steps towards building that something. But always moving on, not staying with the old. Old relationships. Old ways of believing. Old habits. Leave it all behind. And create the new. Create yourself anew. Life is always evolving, so you evolve with life as well.


And also I want to thank all that entered my Goodreads giveaway. I just checked and saw that I had 358 entries. 358 people interested in my book “BENJAMIN JONES – The Return of The Gods.” Success for my first giveaway indeed.

Full of confidence

 “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” 

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

There is no worst enemy than one’s self-pity. There is no greater obstacle you bring to yourself than overthinking and analyzing something to death. Life is to be lived with courage, the successful life that is. But, of course, we all feel lack of confidence, some self-pity, maybe sadness about ourselves and where we’re going in life at times. Or perhaps, when one is lacking self-awareness, we tend to secretly compare ourselves to others. That is human and we all do it. But the truth is that this kind of mental behavior does not help us in any way. We human beings are meant to be ourselves, unique; and it is why each of us has a different experience, each of us feels different, each of us carries our own styles and ways of thinking.

This might sound harsh, but a great life is only for the brave among us. By brave I mean the ones who leave our pasts behind, the ones who are absolutely ourselves, the ones who do put importance to what others think and feel about us. It is my life and I experience and learn from myself, for myself.

This is not selfishness. This is empowering ourselves. This is saying ‘I create what I want, with patience, with courage, with love for myself; and it might go against what society teaches and does, but still it is all about my happiness, growing in character and in confidence.

The fact is that we are what we daily think. If we daily think we can’t do something, or be something, or achieve something, than we are that. And we so become what we daily think. Because what we daily think about ourselves becomes great part of our subconscious, which means it becomes who we are in all situations in life. Life is no more than this. Life becomes this. What I do is to be positive in spite of whatever goes on around me. People do not matter because they cannot live your life. Each one of us lives our own. So focus on your life. What do you think about yourself right now?? How is that helping you?? Why do you think that?? Are you comparing yourself to others?? Are you living in past mistakes?? Are you living in past, hurtful memories??


Thanks for reading.

Now, let me remind you that curses do exist. Darkness rules us all. So what do you do with all that anger and hatred you carry…?? Have you visited purgatory with Ben yet…??

The Lord of Darkness has trapped Ben in a dark world, in another dimension, a purgatory if you will. He must discover why he’s been put there. He must save the ancient gods’ planet from total oblivion as well.

Strong and Confident

So, sometimes we may feel depressed, neglected, miserable even. Perhaps something didn’t go as planned. Maybe somebody else didn’t share our same feelings. Or it might be that certain outcomes in life just don’t seem to agree with us at some level. Whatever that is, we have the capacity to make it better. One may not see it at times, due to being anxious, angry, overwhelmed; but we all have the capacity to turn things around or make them better. This takes patience, of course; however, it also requires that you keep a peaceful mind, a mind that is strong and committed to keep going.

If we allow our minds to fall into fear. If we tell ourselves that we are incapable of doing something. If all we do in our minds is complain, curse, feel intimidated and shy about our own progress. If there is no desire to keep going in spite of the drama and difficult situations we live, then we are letting fear rule our decisions. And this makes you weak, unable to see your true capacity in your life, and it keeps you chained to this lack of self-love. Lack of self-love makes us paranoid, afraid and angry in our relationships.

The true purpose in your life is found once you let go of all that stress and anxiety, pain from the past and guilt you carry, and all that harmful intimidation and feelings of inferiority preventing you from becoming truly free. Whether a woman or man, the power begins in your determination and confidence to move forward in this. Now, please understand, if you don’t find your true purpose by letting go of all this fear, then you will fail in your life, in your relationships, in the treatment to yourself even. You will ask yourself why things are so bad in your life. You won’t see solutions.

You won’t feel strong and confident to become a better person in your relationship with yourself and with another. And without a sense of purpose, and without strength and confidence, we cannot really make ourselves feel proud, truthful, valued; but exactly this is what is required to live a happy life. So one must always remain aware of our minds, and so let go of any anger, frustration, anxiety, fear we may feel. This works for me, as it will work for you as well. So, keep your head up, remain honest, committed and confident in your mind.


And now, please enjoy these next book promos. And feel free to navigate my website and download my free book “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman.”

Never stop.

Why do people sometimes put you down, others criticize you nonstop…??

What is the hidden reason for them to act this way, specially when it comes to family and people close to you??

It is many times subconscious, so quite often they themselves don’t even understand why they do it.

Most people will only help you as long as you stay in their level. If truly helping you means that you will surpass them, whether in knowledge or position, whether in love or happiness, they won’t do so; however, they will smile and tell you something nice here and there just to keep up with appearances and hide their jealousy.

Why am I writing this…?? Because if you are to never give up in life, go after what you want with passion and honesty, then you must be prepared to see people that are around you, and people that before supported you with nice words, become strangers and even obstacles in your path. This is not perfect, or the way is supposed to be. I know. But humans everywhere are like this.

Most people, even though they don’t know it, are fake and wear nice masks. Most people just want the superficial appearance to fit in with others and with how others see them. And what I’m telling you here is relevant information if one is to go after his passions and dreams. One must be psychologically and emotionally prepared for this global fakeness. One thing to understand is that people have been programmed since childhood, and taught, to act this way. Others are really unhappy in their own lives, so they bully others and try to make them feel as bad as they feel.

Try to understand this yourself, such in order for you to raise yourself and keep on your journey. Life is beautiful and about progress, but many human beings make it difficult and ugly even for others. The first thing to strengthen in you is self-respect, which means to stay away from entertaining the criticism and negativity of your family, friends, and others. You want to achieve love, happiness, success in life, then you must be unique and not let others bring you down in any way. Life requires strength, and strength requires your commitment and perseverance in this.

Explore yourself.

It is widely believed that talent is what brings great things. You have a talent, use it. You must seek your talents. You reach success like this. But this is nothing special. What’ll get you to feel love, to feel happiness, to feel successful in life, is to grab your talent and strengthen it through hard word and commitment.

What gives you motivation about yourself…?? Go in deep. Explore yourself, your hobbies, your talents, that which makes the time go by without you noticing it. Life is about this. I know that most people do the same. They go to school, college, date, marriage, kids, travelling and the rest. But, as nice as this is, it is what everybody does. It is not exploring yourself. Only exploring yourself gives you eternal happiness.

Nothing can bring you more satisfaction, joy, gratitude than your own hard work and commitment, perseverance through it all. Dedication to yourself is self-love. Developing your passions, your talents, your nature. It is your purpose. Because in order to feel confident, inspired, proud of yourself, you must create yourself.

Go for what you want.

 

Do not pay attention to people who belittle your goals and dreams.  If you do not build your own life, who will do it for you…??  If you do not stay focused on what really matters to you, then what will become of you…??

Life’s experiences are a reflection of how you feel, of the state of mind you carry, of your true identity and confidence.  Your mind must be focused in order to create commitment, in order to create value in your goals and dreams constantly.

You cannot expect commitment without patience though.  Go for what you want, never stop, become strong in your heartfelt desires; but carry always patience, seek always value in your goals and dreams.  Do not pay attention to people who tell you otherwise.  What are your true desires…??

All you think, feel, and do every day.

 

926d479d17adb72059e9bd4df0e4df6d

 

Life itself is a miracle, but you must not let your mind make you anxious and disturb you to see that miracle.  Never let yourself down, to feel lonely, to feel depressed for any reason; but feel life as it is, control your suffering, your self-pity.

Love is everywhere and anywhere in life.  Love, joy, harmony, affection, success, it is all within you; and you can experience it at any time in your life.  All you have to do is to stop attaching yourself to your overthinking and expectations, obsessive desires and self-pity.

The grass is always green.  The sun always shines.  As long as you control your mind, and your mind does not control you.  Love is not about your desires fulfilled and personal opinions.  Love is about your commitment to feel positive and healthy in all you think, feel, and do every day.

Where the miracle lies.

 

271842-Love-Is-A-Commitment

 

Love is the deepest connection to another being, to our lives, to ourselves; and once you decide to connect you must not pretend or play, but take the journey of discovery seriously.

And what this connection is, at any level, is a journey to know one another, a commitment throughout it, and something which speaks of your inner values.

The feeling of connection will never fade, and it will even spark and swell in you again, if you keep your attention on it, without allowing your mind to interfere with arrogance and self-pity.

Unconditional love is this attention kept without the tyranny of your changing mind.  Love, deep connection to life, to one another, is a commitment, a phenomenon which never changes it course.

Only the mind changes course.  Truly understand this, and you can understand what unconditional love is.  Truly understand this, and you can understand where the miracle of love lies.
