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:

Better life quality

 “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Hippocrates

In my life, lifestyle, character and behavior daily, there is nothing more important than good nutrition. Think about it. Why are we alive right now, or what sustains us and gives us physical life…?? The energy inside our cells. And how is that energy replenished, maintained, made better or worse?? Food. Nutrition. This is what feeds our minds and bodies.

You may want to eat and drink whatever you want in your life, but you know this is true. And it takes a lot of self-discipline to eat right, to stop your ego and selfish desires for poison and acquire a better eating lifestyle. But it is all worth it, because life is about quality. If you have good energy in you, then you’ll be in a better mood to enjoy life, and you’ll be more creative and intelligent, and you’ll be a better man or woman in your relationships.

And what about self-care, self-love…?? Self-care is to properly nourish our bodies and minds. It is all about adopting good habits. It is all about training your mind to desire good, nutritious food. It is about being creative and cooking. It is about choosing what is better for yourself. It is about about attracting better in your life.

Please, watch this video below which I made titled: “Better Life Quality.”

Childhood.

It is in childhood the programming and energy built into our more mature years.

Think about the adult’s mind. Think about what it contains. And know that it is the beginning of this mind what matters most. The beginning of this mind is childhood.

It is extremely important to influence a nurturing and creative part in the growing mind of a child. No matter what your likes are as a parent. No matter how close you are with your own family now as an adult. You must give this to the child. You must nurture his mind, and when you do this think about the example, the influence, the mental food you are feeding him; because when he is an adult he will choose and understand life according to this food, example, and influence you gave him in his childhood. Give him freedom, knowledge, morality, truth, love:

1- The child must read good books,

2- Maybe play a few video games which expand his imagination,

3- Visit his grandma and other family often,

4- And taught to be close and nurture animals whenever possible.

This was my childhood growing up. I used to read, play video games, take a few drawing classes in my neighborhood, visit my grandma and play with my dog at her house. But I am not putting myself as the example to follow here. I am saying that in childhood is very important to be aware of what we feed the young mind. When you see adults bullying others. When you see politicians and businessmen extremely greedy and immoral. When you see people addicted to sex, to drugs, to alcohol, to immoral thinking and ways of behaving. All this stems from a childhood which lacked good examples and freedom to learn to think for yourself.

As one grows up and leaves childhood things change, life gets tougher; and so, that is why your mind expansion as a kid is extremely important. As a child, the mind is like a sponge; and everything you learn, and everything which influences your mind, is transferred to your subconscious and it becomes your programming as an adult. So, a person who has not developed and nurtured a healthy and creative mind in childhood then, when he/she becomes a grown up the mind is easily influenced by immoral and toxic ideas and habits, and the person’s understanding of him/herself and of life gets affected greatly, and so they suffer more in life–physically and emotionally. Be aware of all this.


And it is that time again, fellas. Time to get creative and expand your minds. Time to be entertained and a little bit more joyful. Choose your book, or books. Visit these incredible book promos. Fantasy, sci-fi, romance, horror, steampunk, etc:

Return to the child.

 

4e5f24b8640cfa8e431d9e09f544fbd5

 

As children we were more in touch with our innocence, our emotions, and our playfulness to create freely.  We weren’t afraid of expressing ourselves, and we weren’t intimidated or annoyed by people’s opinions of us and of our activities.  Now, this is what we must be now as adults too.  To be ourselves and follow our hearts.

Life begins to make you depressed if the only thing you do is what you must, and you do it also complaining and in a foul mood.  A child-like mind is a mind which has no fear to express itself, and its focus is on playfulness, creativity, freedom and uniqueness, and not on the life of others.  This is something we all must follow, with full heart, with a full connection to ourselves. 

I write about issues we all live.  Life can be difficult if we don’t have the right inspiration.  Please follow me if you seek this inspiration.  And check out my books below.  Thanks.

More creative.

  • Learn to see your life with gratitude, positivity, and a little creative vision.  In this manner, you can raise yourself above your anger, your frustration, your dramas and troubles.  By being creative, you then become always thankful for your life and for the opportunity to make better choices going ahead.

  • Look at your life.  There’s good things, and probably not so good things, right…??  It’s always going to be like this.  Always good and not so good.  The good is there for you to enjoy and desire to seek more of it, and the not so good is there to strengthen you and to make you more creative in your journey.

 


I’ve been on this journey for long to finally understand that our minds create our lives and every experience we have. I know we can all better our lives by individual self-development and spiritual understanding. Check out my self-help books to enlighten yourself and others.

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.

A creative and intelligent mind.

 

Creativity, or the essence of creativity, what fuels the creative process, is not of the busy mind or of the ego; but it comes from beyond that, and in order to tap into it, or in order to access it, one must quiet the mind.  And how do you quiet the mind…??

By observing an introspective or meditative life, a life that is not always busy and noisy, in an environment which offers calm and focus.  When the environment and the body surrender to this quietude as a daily practice, then the brain alters, changes its structure and functioning, and so it access this creative essence easily.

This creative essence is intelligence, it is the purity beyond the noise of the mind, to thus understand life and yourself.  Because that is what intelligence truly is:  Creativity in its purest essence, not only to create art, but to understand life at a deeper level.

The anxious and stressed mind, frustrated and busy, cannot access this pure creativity; for what fills it escapes harmony and calmness, and in doing so creates a psychological environment of pure suffering.  And how can intelligence live in this hostile environment…??

Acts of intelligence.

 

the-power-of-your-subconscious-mind-300x300

 

The way you react in your life is the way of your subconscious emotional programming.  When you get upset about someone’s words, it is because your mind’s beliefs, ideas, or opinions have been rattled or threatened; thus, your subconscious programming makes you react even without consciously thinking about it.

But when you train your conscious mind to respond in a different way, unattached to beliefs, ideas and opinions to the words and behaviors of others, then you are creating your own subconscious programs.

This gives you intelligence, it boosts your inner harmony and knowledge of self; for you become more confident, liberated from egoistical reactions, thus penetrate into a deeper understanding of yourself, of others, and of the ways of life.

Intelligence is not your memory and the accumulation of knowledge there, but indeed this is what the naive and ignorant world believes–and so, just look at it and you’ll see that there are no really intelligent people out there, just people holding school degrees and people old in time.

Intelligence is in the way you react and respond to the world, to your stress, to your negativity, to your anger and frustration.  Intelligence is to create your own emotional understanding and to see beyond the petty acts of your ego.

Create!

original

As human creatures we have developed the power of visualization, which is the power of higher creativity and language; hence, we can create more than any other creature we know, because we mesh images with language in our minds–i.e., language reveals stories, symbols, it brings powerful meaning to those images.

This tells us that no matter our surroundings, our circumstances, if we can create with belief and faith, through patience and commitment in our minds, then we can manifest better futures in our surroundings through that mental creation.

This goes beyond physical reality, to create from thought into matter, and that is why it is very difficult to understand and even to believe for most people.  And also because to actually create, the mind has to have no fear and doubt that it will manifest; hence the difficulty for most people who are attached to the material reality and have formed strong bonds with this same physical reality.

So one needs to walk away from physical reality to create and begin manifestation, which means to detach oneself from the obsession of matter and the world, which means to direct your attention inwardly and stop putting so much faith, trust, stress, excitement in the physical out there.

The problem is thinking that your current situation cannot be changed, because in this lies fear and self-doubt.  People overthinks and speculates how to reach something, how to achieve something in life out there; however, they ignore and avoid the origin of all physical reality, which is thought and emotion in them.

 

Thus when you create with thought (visualization) and emotion (strong emotional connection within that same visualization) then you are directing your attention inwardly and creating your life from its very origins–i.e., from within the micro-world to manifest into the macro-world.

Inner traits.

The psyche is mortal, dual, material, obtuse, and in denial of itself; thus, of the two forces man contains within, one is developed stronger than the other, either that of the feminine or that of the masculine.  The mind then is its own ruler, sick or healthy; therefore, the mind creates the violent and absurd man, the warmonger, the unfaithful lover, the saint, the peaceful, the homosexual, the lesbian, the heterosexual, the libertine, the enlightened one, the wicked one, etc. etc.  But the successful and blissful life is attained once you have reached beyond this rigidity of mind–  Can you not see that yourself…??

The higher moral character, the divine traits of the innermost, the most decent and truly superior human being is embraced and it takes over when you go beyond the programming of your own mind–i.e., beyond the absurdity of the unholy and reactive mind.  This is for women and for men.  But it is specially a duty for men to awaken from slumber, because men tend to be in most cases the troglodytes who worship the knowledge of the mind and its delusional beliefs.

It is necessary, absolutely vital for any true enlightenment, to reach within and bring the divine traits of the feminine to the surface; thus, you must unite the sacred knowledge of the mind with that essence of The Divine Mother.  You will not feel whole unless this happens as an experience within you.
 
 

  Honest, creative, compassionate, empathetic, trustful, teachable and humble, patient under suffering, individual in thought–these are the traits which reside deep within each person (woman and man), and the traits you must strive to embrace and make conscious each day of your life.
