He who builds walls.

  • It is quite often that we may encounter people with shifting moods, people stressed, people arguing for any silly thing, people trying to win at all costs.  These people make life and relationships into a competition.  A competition to be won.  And they’ll do anything to win.  This is the issue they carry.  These are the burdens which they allow to guide them.

  • They may fail in communication.  In fact, true communication is emotional.  Emotional connection to another.  And they lack this.  Just know that the fact that they lack this emotional communication is not on you.  Your priority is to seek respect from them.  Respect from yourself.  Let it go.  Walk away and keep your mind free of anger and frustration.

Render yourself free.

 

20190520_monday_quote_alternate

 

When you interact with the world have in mind a great sense of humility.  Don’t let others put you down, and do not let yourself feel prideful and put down others either.

When you communicate with people, share ideas, express opinions and personal experiences, don’t be attached to this; but be open to other experiences, let yourself learn something new about the experience of someone else.

Observe your own reactions to things, to conversations, to what you encounter in the world.  Observe your ego moving here and there, and control yourself, practice self-control, and do not remain attached to anything at all.

Keep on learning throughout your life, like the wise man, and for that you must become detached and free from thoughts and feelings–know that this is your very prison.  The fool ignores this and remains always attached to his ego, like a very hard rock, like a very stubborn and immobile object.

If you stay…

 

large

 

Love is not something you force, design to your whim, or manipulate; for the mind, the ego, seeks this.  Love is something which cannot be explained, something which unites people, something which does not seek to judge or control.

To love is not to judge, it is to accept somebody else as they are; so, you either walk away or you stay with them, but if you stay you accept them and nurture their growth alongside you.

Trying to “fix” people, trying to force them into doing what you think is right, trying to influence the outcome of any relationship is a political move, it is competition, it is to seek control–and it is NOT love.

That is why a human relationship, ANY human relationship actually, is a “leap of faith” as they say.  You get into a relationship with the best desires to progress together, with your lover, with your family, with your friends, with whomever.

But you do not know what is going to happen next, because love for us is something we build each moment, with each decision, with each behavior.  Something bothers you now about the other person, you must accept it then; we all have flaws.

Something appears to be hurtful to you, you must communicate your feelings and explain it; be direct, honest, but do not try to force people.  You either show care and love each moment, or you opt for walking away and doing exactly what you want; however, you do not try to control or judge if you stay.

The Wealth of Listening.

 

stress

 

There is too much noise in our minds, always chattering in there, wanting to express what we think and feel, trying to liberate how we feel about the world, what we hold dear to us and what we think of others.

But the truth is, no matter how freeing and good expressing ourselves through thoughts and words might be, there is no deeper connection and more direct communication quite often than silence.  The wealth of listening is wealth like no other.

And not just mental silence is needed, but sometimes listening to others, listening for others to express their feelings, to liberate themselves, is allowing for this deeper connection to happen.

Because love and this connection is not found in thoughts or words, as good and noble as these might be; however, we must become silent in our minds and stop our chattering egos to really build a better connection and base of the true essence of what we call love.

And this means not only listening to others, but quite often just being there, sharing our time, allowing our silent hearts to speak through just sitting there with the person or persons we love.  This is true love.


This understanding is paramount to be fully moral in character and so build all our healthy and truthful relationships in life, because indeed life is about relationships with yourself and with another.

So, then, you must learn to listen to yourself and to others properly.  We all must.  Not later, but now.

The Sound of Creation.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.  In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” ~ John 1: 1-5.

———————————————————————————–

The sounding scale of seven tones (Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-LA-Si, 7 chakras, 7 churches or spinal energy temples, 7 cosmoses in man, seven virtues and seven deadly sins, etc.) exists in the entire cosmos of Universal Creation.  The seven tones of the great scale, with the wonderful rhythms of the fire (love essence, Kundalini Fire, Christic Energy, etc.), resound in the entire universe.  Vibrations hold everything, even our own bodies; therefore, sound is truly sacred, but the ignorant world cannot comprehend it–i.e., “…and the darkness comprehended it not.” ~ John 1: 1-5.

In the human machine sound has been given physical substance, its energy concentrated in the form of the sacred larynx.  The word of the gods expresses itself through the creative larynx; and this is why certain sounds are vocalized through mantras.  But more of this has the creative aspect in our daily interactions:  One can hurt others by the use of sound through words; one can bless or love someone; one can empower oneself by thought and words to oneself; one can attract in his life by sounds; etc.

The universe, us, everything you experience is created and maintained by sound, vibrations of degrees; and one must see this to actually limit the words we speak only to what is necessary and advantageous for our blissful evolution and that of others.  The ignorant world is full of low vibrations and hurt because the mediocre refuses to acknowledge any purity in sound, in The Word; but it is one of greater understanding who shall create instead of destroy, so one can build a better future.

In bed with fools.

To argue is to defend something, some belief, some part of you which feels insulted, which feels inferior, which feels perhaps wounded or hurt.  And when someone tries to poke at that wound or hurt, you react and poke or hit back.  Isn’t this reaction rooted on fear then…??  The photo below is funny but very appropriate and truthful. 

39161575_531501200616580_3185915132815343616_n
To argue is of the ego:  You hold a belief, a philosophy, you became attached to Buddha, to Jesus, to a religion, to a tradition, to any person in your life; and so, you become possessive and guard it/him/her with all your energy.   But why would you want to argue if you hold the truth…??  Why would you want to battle this and that, become violent if you hold the truth…??  Arguing is of the ego, very selfish, very ignorant, rooted on competition–a desire to win the argument, a desire to feel superior.  But communication through conversation is very different, because your only purpose is to spread or communicate the truth, an experience, a fact; which is rooted on love, such love is to share your thoughts, your feelings, to learn from one another.  And this conversation is not heated, there is no hate, there is no competition, there is no win or lose. 
So, if you hold the truth–which is not a belief, tradition, or attachment of any kind–then there is no cause for arguing.  Like above-mentioned, to argue is of fools, it is rooted on fear, on competition to see who wins.  And so, this is why it is so important to catch your own mental activity whenever your beliefs, your attachments to anyone or to anything, become attacked; so you can control your reactions and not be the fool, but be wise and allow yourself to let go of these beliefs and traditions–these attachments which are really the cause of you hurt and anger.  And you must ask yourself:  Who is in charge…??–my ego and attachments, or myself??  And, do I hold the truth…??–or do I hold irrational traditions, beliefs, and fantasy??  You have to be able to inquire deep within yourself, see what is really true–not right or wrong, not your opinions, not your beliefs or personal nonsense based on the influence of other people.
Only you can enlighten yourself by catching your own egoistical activity and changing your thinking patterns, to become free from attachment and fear.  There is no Enlightenment out there, nothing to seek out there; but it is all within…  It is all about mental peace; and so, when fools argue, there exists no mental peace in their minds, only agitation and competition…

Emotional Adventure.

If you want to keep the love flowing, alive, burning constantly, deep and mature, make every day an adventure–prioritize adventure.  The human mind gets bored and lazy with routines in relationships and in life in general, so bring a challenge to your mind, behave consciously, assume your role as woman or man of deep emotional understanding.  This has to become more important than routine, otherwise affection will wither in time.  And by adventure I do not mean go bungee jumping or run a marathon together, and I know most of the time people do these things because they think it really creates a rising in love in them, an eternal bond which grows in them; however fine and creative these activities, I am talking about deeper understanding, activities more at the emotional level. 
liberation-movement.png
Emotions and getting to the root of emotions is the key to access that power and that unity in all relationships.  See, thrills and physical adventures are fine but they speak to the intellectual level, the level of likes and dislikes, the level of the ego and its activities–which, like mentioned, are fine and enjoyable, specially in the beginning of a relationship where everything is new and exciting like the new toy, because we are getting to know and enjoy each other’s presence and attraction.  But it is the intellect where love is really…??  Can you truly find love if you live and enjoy each other from the mind’s point of view only…??  So how do you love somebody if you access only your ego/your mind/your intellectual witty and charm all the time…??  What is adventure at the emotional level in relationships…??  What is helping each other discover a deeper bond, a deeper union which can withstand all fear and challenges rising in the mind…??
Emotions are indeed what drive us.  You can have the highest IQ, be really intellectual, be a great philosopher, but emotions will drive you without a doubt; and that is why it is so important to be emotionally conscious, or emotionally connected to yourself.  In relationships, what shall build mutual bonding and unions beyond the anomalies and challenges brought by time is an emotional understanding and connection which surpasses that union of the mind–an emotional connection will drive your love for each other ever stronger, and an intellectual connection will help but it won’t be enough because the mind gets scared, angry, stubborn, enslaved by likes and dislikes, by moods in time.
And emotional adventure is profound communication, feeling trusted, feeling appreciated for how you feel not for what you do or for what you say only.  Emotional adventure is supporting one another and feeling as one team, and not as two people with different paths who happen to live together or share a mutual liking.  Wherever we go we hold hands, we smile at each other and feel what the other one feels, we are in harmony/in sync, we vibe the same through aging/through time, etc. etc…  Only emotional understanding, emotional adventure, can unite two persons for life…
37411858_507762166323817_5516908280808472576_n
Love is energy, power, substance which does not have anything to do with the mind, with the ego; it only speaks purely through the heart and it connects through emotions. So a relationship’s strength and heart can be found through sincere and open emotions only.

Shall I raise you to the heavens…??

Relationships are about respect and communication, and also both parties must not lose the admiration for one another; furthermore, there has to be that learning capacity, that possibility for growth and further connection as the two evolve together. What is the mature relationship if not a mutual desire for elevation, where two souls meet and ascend together blissfully as one with acceptance and commitment to true love…??
adac5d03c24912457e6f80af7074587d

Shall I raise you to the heavens…??

Shall I raise you to the heavens…??
As you radiate your beauty into my very dream
As the glowing stars do tonight under this poet.
Your sweet voice as the murmur of the stream
I hear within my troubled head–this I know it!
Love speaks to me through the cool air tonight,
It tells me you are a fallen goddess of beauty,
Such a vision of wonderful wisdom to my sight;
And I feel angels sing to deliver my very duty,
For I must cherish your beauty and your wit,
Protect your purity as the very gold all my days;
For you inspire and elevate me as holy writ,
You bless my existence as life-giving sun rays.

Shall I raise you to the heavens…??
I hear your light footsteps and I weaken,
For my heart is yours as I belong to you;
To my surprise you send me a beacon,
Your loveliness as never before I knew.
Love is the rising essence which unites,
O It covers us in feathers of golden dust!
I shall take you to the greatest heights,
We shall fly together in heavenly wind gust.

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”  ~ Ann Landers; American advice columnist and writer.

Everyday Magic…

executive-power-words

How do you see language, words, codes, our daily mental and verbal messages to ourselves and to other people…??  Do you actually realize the value and importance in life which words do have…??  What is the purpose of our many languages…??
As a writer I put a lot of analysis and meaning into words, because its usage, after all, is certainly the main medium for communication we have as human beings. Words can either create or destroy, elevate or humiliate, make others feel loved or despised, make others do great things or unspeakable things.  Can you see this for yourself…??

29595057_442471876186180_3194078704820266569_n

Think about it–  Hitler made people, which were good and decent people before, hate and kill others.  Jesus, Buddha, and other Enlightened Ones, opened minds into love and made people follow their wisdom teachings.  Religions nowadays make people’s minds narrow and unable to see reality with their ignorant words.  You can either create a great human being or a criminal with words, specially during early childhood when the human brain is absorbing more knowledge from what their parents say.

Creation endowed us with the great capacity for words, for greater communication, for a mighty reason.  Our words are powerful and to be used with great responsibility.

 

Words in your mind.  Words aloud to yourself and to others.  Great energy they are.  White magic, words of love, which builds and elevates yourself and other people.  Dark magic, words of all contempt and fear, which destroys and humiliates yourself and other people…  So, use them carefully and with responsibility…

“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity.  We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair.  Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”  ~ Yehuda Berg; Israeli-American international speaker and author on Kabbalah.

Give them freedom…

Do you understand relationships…??  What is the point of honest communication…??  Do you bring freedom to your relationships…??

In human relationships the key element is honest communication, as we all know, as we all try to become better human beings in life; however, quite often one gets taken by this obsession for winning, for coming out ahead, for proving ourselves to the other, thus the ego takes over and a communication based on love and understanding vanishes.  This calls for self-reflection and less pride; so, this calls for more rich silence, less talking.

29543143_440428179723883_2314169880494595611_n
The ego likes to talk and show off, defend itself and seek security; but the true heart of love is silent, wise, listens because it knows in silence there is true freedom.  And what is love…??  Is it a word…??  Is it talking and arguing…??  No.  True love is an essence which lives in the rich silence; in the rich silence of listening, in the rich silence of holding hands and walking together, in the rich silence of staring deeply into each other’s eyes… without a sign of ego… without trying to fix anything… without empty words all the time…


And that is exactly what one must bring into a relationship, into an honest communication with another, such freedom to liberate the mind of another and make them feel valued, appreciated to allow themselves to be heard by us, to express themselves freely and without any contention or threat.

This is love and understanding, to show true care in what someone else thinks and feels; because sometimes talking is of the ego and vanity itself, because sometimes to be quiet and listen is to guide our relationships into new, vaster horizons.

“Much talking is the cause of danger.  Silence is the means of avoiding misfortune. The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage.  Other birds, without speech, fly freely about.”  ~ Saskya Pandita; Tibetan spiritual leader, Buddhist scholar, and writer.
