The search for Knowledge.

To know oneself, at the deepest level, is simultaneously to know God or that Divine Force of Constant Creation; and this is the secret of gnosis (sacred knowledge/moral knowledge).  A wise gnostic teacher, Monoimus, says:  “Abandon the search for God and the creation and other matters of a similar sort.  Look for Him by taking yourself as the starting point.  Learn what it is within you which makes everything its own and says,  “My God, my mind, my thought, my soul, my body.”  Learn the sources of sorrow, joy, love, hate.  If you carefully investigate these matters you will find Him in yourself.”

So what is to find Him within yourself…??  And how do you actually do this…??

He is whatever expands your mind into pure love and harmony.  He is whatever divine process unites your intellect with your emotional body; because in this there is balance, in you, as a human creature destined to find your true self.  So to find Him within yourself is to find YOU without outer distractions and influences–without religions, without politics, without others manipulating you, without collective activities, etc. 

But how…??  Through a never-ending search for knowledge.  Expanding your mind in terms of your physiology, your psychology, your behavior as human, the history of the ancient cultures and peoples, anything which can help you, by actual application of these teachings by you, to be better in moral and ethics towards you and towards others.   The world is rich with books and knowledge, so develop your mind with it.

The search for knowledge must be your purpose, because knowledge expands your mind, because knowledge gives you the capacity to learn about the world around you, and because knowledge inspires you to be more in touch with reality towards a global conscience. 

A mind that is filled with rich and inspiring knowledge, factual and universal knowledge, is a mind that is confident, strong, poised, harmonious, moral and ethical; but, opposite to it, a mind that is stubborn, fixed in its strict beliefs and opinions, and empty when it comes to universal understanding, is a mind that is fearful, doubtful, attached and obsessed, and doomed to slavery within its own programming–i.e., not free.

Things as they are.

People tends to always follow this romantic concept of soulmates.  Romanticism tends to be what love is for people.  A soulmate is someone who people think is their most perfect fit, the end of struggle, the heart of happiness for them.  But they miss the point due to ignorance and due to following all these concepts based on romance which are floating out there.  Do you seek perfection, uninterrupted happiness…??  What do you think a soulmate really is…??

Physical life is never-ending challenges, always a reason to live better, and the best way to exist and explore your own existence; and thus there is romance, friendship, family, etc.–all bases for our constant psychological and emotional evolution.  And nothing and no one is ever a solution or perfect.  All one must do is to see beyond the flaws and imperfections, and then you may experience the magic of love, of happiness.  And a soulmate is there to help us, a mirror of ourselves, someone to shake our ego and teach us or point us to a deep realization within ourselves; however, this so-called “soulmate” is not tied or limited by romance, or any other label society has designed for your ignorant and egoistical needs.

To learn to see this is to have a realization which elevates you.  To learn to see this is illumination to your conscience.  Because the mind is always looking into perfection and constant bliss, but this is not real–just an egoistical comparison influenced by society.  So, stop looking for perfect, stop looking for yourself, stop dreaming and creating exactly what your ego wants; expand your views, your mind, step away from the influence you carry from society and start seeing things as they really are in life.

The Illumination!

What is being a whole human being if not embracing all you are, including all your experiences–good and bad…??  If you hate something in your past, doesn’t it mean you hate some part of you…??  If you hate some part of you then, can you truly know and embrace yourself…??  The memories you have, the cruel past, the joyful past–it is all you are as a human being, is it not…??
36904417_497958547304179_3376714231691870208_n

I have said many times before, as a human being all you are is your mind, and that is a bundle of memories–i.e., you think and live the way you do because of the influence and things taught to you by family and society, you like what you like because you have been programmed subconsciously since childhood, you react emotionally the way you do because you have learned from others.  All this is you!  The past has shaped you into who you are today.  Your character, your beliefs, your traditions, your lifestyle, the way you handle your hurt, the way you handle your joy, etc.—it is all borrowed.  Unless you are truly awakened, truly enlightened, you remain attached to all this–or maybe to some part of it.  Realize this within yourself through self-analysis and wisdom.  Do not agree or disagree with me about this; it is irrelevant if you do, for only truth matters, not opinions.  Opinions are of the ego; truth is of the heart or of that which is eternal in you.

If you are, as a human being, memories and all past experiences, does it truly make sense to hate or fear any memory or experience you have lived…??  The death of my father is why I am who I am today; if he was alive I would still be religious and my mind still would be confused and lost.  If you got divorced–that experience helped giving you lessons.  If you got sick–that leads you to overcome that pain, the aim is to make you wiser and stronger.  If you still pay school and you never finished–that is a lesson as well.  In order to understand your difficult or cruel past, or any past at all, you must love it, you must love the whole of you; opposite to this, if you try to escape it or fear it, talk badly about it or hate the experience, then you will remain broken, in pieces, not whole.

Accept that as a human being you are your past and the memories and experiences which shaped you, so then you can entirely love who you are and who you have become…  When you entirely love who you are and who you have become, then you shall hurt no more and great and divine understanding will illumine your conscience…
DeconstructingTheDream24x36
Illumination is the lighting of your human conscience, no more and no less. It is started or experienced in you when you forgive your past and see or realize that all you have gone through–whether it was forced upon you or not–serves a purpose. Once you truly realize and embrace this you become whole–which means you do not see memories as hurt anymore, you love your memories because you understand that you are them as a human. And so, now you are not confused and damaged by your past, there is no pain in you and no more superficial masks to hold for yourself and for others–because you are free to be yourself 100%. Emotionally free! Psychologically strong! Spiritually illumined!

The Light of One Soul.

Once there was a small boy named Shankar.  He belonged to a poor family.  And one day, he was crossing through the forest carrying some woods, when he saw an old man who was very hungry.  Shankar wanted to give him some food, but he did not have food even for his own; so, sad as he was, he continued on his path.  On his way then, later, he saw a deer who was very thirsty.  He wanted to give him some water, but he did not have water even for himself; so, sad as he was, he went on his way ahead…

Then he saw a man who wanted to make a camp but he did not have woods, so Shankar asked about his problem and then gave some woods to him.  In return, he gave him some food and water.  Now he went back to the old man and gave him some food and gave some water to the deer.  The old man and the deer were very happy.  Shankar then happily went on his way…

One day Shankar fell down the hill!  He was in pain and he couldn’t move; no one was there to help him.  But, the old man who he had helped before saw him, he quickly came and pulled him up the hill.  Shankar had many wounds on his legs.  The deer whom shankar had given water saw his wounds and quickly went to the forest and brought some herbs; it so happened then that after some time his wounds were covered.  All of them were very happy that they were able to help each other…

When we give a good example and help the ones in need, we are truly helping ourselves; not because we expect them to do the same for us, but because we are filling our conscience with truth, we are building a stronger and valuable persona in us, and because we are nourishing our own heart with pure and beautifying love–i.e., a love which brings glow and shine into our lives, and a love which brings bliss into all we do. 

We are all human beings, and as human beings we all have that inner light within us but also we have that terrible darkness; and so, each one of us must find a balance between our divine light and our terrible darkness.  Moments of bliss.  Moments of misery.  We all need to help each other, especially help the weaker and innocent among us, and see that we are truly the same; as we all feel joy and feel pain, as we all desire to feel loved and happy…  No matter how upset, how hurt you are, always remind yourself of this…

The Light in Conscience.

32222242_459908224442545_1365117439062310912_n

The light of your conscience can only be experienced through self-discipline and creativity, such self-discipline to keep your eyes alert and your heart alive and passionate, such creativity to see through your darkest hours with good cheer and vision.  You cannot allow yourself to fall into depression and obscurity but you must keep your heart beating and your mind sharp, passionate and strong to see beyond your sorrow, beyond your failed attempts and the hurtful memories.  What is the value of a human being if not to find a way to shine in darkness…??

583f351e5062cde021dc0f587d73239f

Through Alchemy the ancients transmuted lesser energy of thought into higher energy of thought, a hell into a heaven, misery into joy, weakness into strength, condemnation into salvation; and through self-discipline and creative meditation into oneself one reaches this superior height, and so you have to do the same in your life.  Is there anyone else in the entire universe who deserves it more than you do…??  To whom does your life belong…??

You have no truly blissful life if your mind does not carry self-discipline and creativity, because you have struggle and issues coming up, pain and misery coming up, disappointments and confusion coming up, and you cannot avoid this because you cannot avoid yourself; being human is going through all this, flawed and ignorant, it is falling, hurting yourself, being rejected, ignored, mocked, deceived, “heartbroken”–thus self-discipline and creativity are the ways to endure all this and learn its lesson with dignity and with a sincere smile upon your face.

…Learn to welcome the darkness in you, the struggle in life; thanks to this activity of acceptance you can turn on the light in your conscience and experience a greater love/a greater wisdom…

In perfect balance…

In our society is easy to see the two conditions of life divided in the human being, such conditions which are The Divine Feminine and The Divine Masculine; therefore, we see purely intellectuals, purely emotional and spirituals, purely greedy and obsessed, purely religious and indifferent from the world, etc. etc.  We see men with stubborn minds of knowledge who work hard and remain distanced from their own emotions.  We see women who only have romance and the desire to have kids in their minds.  All this is the very fragmentation of the mind, from which all suffering and differences arise in the world.

In-Perfect-Balance

Wars, for example, are started due to greed and hatred, fear born in insecure minds; insecure intellects which create war for financial purposes and to establish power as a nation or group.  This is the intellect of man/the ego of man guiding the individual.  When either one, the intellect or the emotions guide humankind we are unbalanced, we are dual, we are attached to suffering and pleasure; thus, the never-ending roller coaster of the unawakened individual, where true happiness cannot exist.  This not maturity, for maturity is to balance both, the intellect and the heart, the ego and the emotion. As Buddha says, ‘The Middle Way.’ Balance.

“Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity.  The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.” ~ Samuel Ullman; American businessman, poet, and humanitarian.

28576602_431536050613096_2128937064387837952_n

We are beings which carry both substances, which in reality are one; but thought, which lives in time and names everything, comes along and says “Feminine” or “Masculine”, and so we choose because thought also says “One is weaker” “The other stronger.”


But the human mind, if it is to elevate itself to the heights of all illumination, must embrace both and merge as one, accept the role of both intellectual and emotional, of analysis and heart.  Only this balance, this divine merging, this enlightening Oneness, can bring about peace and harmony in the mind and reflect an outer world of equal peace and harmony.

 


Balance.”

True transmutation is the balance of the two,
The balance of the two is the wellness of life;
This is the wisdom of the ages which were,
Such which lives in the Light of Conscience.

Without light man dwells in darkness,
Without seeing man seeks and seeks;
With pride in the search he fills himself–
Doesn’t he know that he has no eyes…??

Eternal children of both raised by one,
The One became the two and it began;
The miraculous purpose is laid unto him,
As the pendulum swings about his life.

The Source be man, man be the Source,
As the many be one, one be the many;
Rose from darkness to all of society be,
To find the balance which is the true way to be.

Nothing outside…

“There is no power outside of man.  Man has created God out of fear.  So, the problem is fear, not God or the Devil.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti.

“In obedience to any religion, there is always fear; and fear darkens the mind.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti; author, philosopher, spiritual educator, public speaker.


To know God

From the beginning man’s mind has been corrupted by fear of the unknown–i.e., fear of death (fear of losing people and things to which they are attached), fear of their own dark sides, and so on and so forth.  Fear brings ego-filled ideas and delusions, so they have created religion as a way to deal with fear; however, religion has its own agendas–i.e., power over man, build expensive institutions, amassing riches and power over the mind of the weak, etc. etc.

To really know God is to go beyond things or institutions created by man. 

iam-cosmic-god

How can God be reduced to the thought and the ego of some pompous individual with a goal to rule over the minds of other men…??
Ponder this for a second, put aside your own ego and all beliefs you’ve been forced, and you will see the clear light come to your conscience.

God is found inside you by inner contemplation, by meditation; by watching your thoughts and emotions rise and fall, and by knowing you are the watcher.
Within each cell of your body, there is energy which structures the same body, which makes this physical body move.  Within each atom of a rock, there is energy at a lower vibration than the energy inside your very cells.  This energy fills the whole universe and universes, because this energy is the universe and universes.

Meditate on this faithfully, and do not follow the ignorant speech of other men, whoever they are and whichever titles they hold, but follow your own reason, your own wisdom.

(Some people asked me to explain #5 in the photo below. “To Know God Is To Understand That Fear and Love are The same.”  This is the quick explanation:  Love and fear are the same energy but just different degrees, just like fire and ice, they both burn, they are the same, just the vibration of fire is faster than that of ice…. When you feel fear but you develop strength from within and overcome that fear, your body and mind get used to it, there is no fear anymore; fear has turned to love–i.e., you were experiencing love as fear before because your ego was taking over, but once you overcame your obstacle you began to see fear as strong love, so for your mind fear has disappeared now and you only feel love).
