Intelligence.

I am all about greater understanding, empathy, intelligence. Not intellectuality. Intellectuals can rise in society because this one is superficial, but in life to know true love and happiness intellectuality cannot help. Intellectuality is a burden, because it makes you stubborn, desperately seeking answers and meaning, it creates the anxiety and the need to belong to groups.

Intelligence, on the other hand, makes you lose stubbornness, it makes you more compassionate, full of understanding of your own actions and its consequences. Intelligence loosens your grip to philosophies and rigid concepts. And intelligence is only adopted by an individual, not by groups.

Simply measure people by character, not by words, not by the money they make, not by the position in society. Asleep idiots, men and women, fall fascinated by the allure of this superficiality, and we then have the chaos, the division, the dull minds in the world.  

One needs to let go of trying to fit in and honor one’s group.  Waking up to this is about seeing with the eyes of truth, because no real beauty and love can exist in people who cannot leave their egos and measure others by empathy, by character, by a greater human spirit. Life is simple, because it is about letting go of ego.

Letting go of ego is about detaching yourself from groups, from beliefs, from opinions. Letting go is about freedom. Freedom to become an individual. Not a republican. Not a democrat. Not a liberal. Not a Christian. Not a Buddhist. Not any other group which divides. Letting go is about being an individual who does not seek a fake identity by following and becoming part of a group.

Get to know yourself.

 

eac242505a0fc74daf33f91f443e234d

 

What the ego is keeps you from loving your life and people.  The ego is all that which keeps you unhappy, angered, frustrated, violent psychologically and emotionally.  You must see this in you each moment.

You cannot be healed of your suffering, of your traumas, of your confusions, if the ego lies hidden and undiscovered in you.  And many people, good people even, do not actually recognize when they are possessed by their own egos.

And it is why religions are pointless, because God is not found in scriptures or in any other book–ancient or not.  God is your own decency, your own goodness, that vitality and inspiration in you to love and create; and this must be discovered only by you.

To discover all this goodness and strength born out of love in you, you must first recognize the obstacle you have, which is your own ego.  We all have ego, but we all do not recognize it or acknowledge its existence in us.  Get to know yourself each moment then.

Illusions of the Dead…

 

9c1f681a66ec280ef8bc913005119b54

 

What really goes through your mind as you go shopping, or to a restaurant, or to the movies, or to some other place for entertainment and “collective fun”…??

Do you walk around absorbed by the colorful signs and lost in the unconscious crowds??  Do you truly understand what goes on around you, inside the unconsciousness of the crowds, and inviting you to be one like them??

Personally, I am not against this at all, the pleasure of earthly entertainment is not a “sin” but a thing to enjoy, if you have the chance; however, the problem is that most people’s mind is unconscious and easily corrupted by this.

quote-it-is-very-easy-to-conform-to-what-your-society-or-your-parents-and-teachers-tell-you-jiddu-krishnamurti-75-94-55


They forget what is truly important and start believing that popularity and doing all these activities is all there is; and so, they lose themselves, and compete to acquire the money to enjoy these pleasures.

And then, due to their inflated egos, become anxious, prideful, even depressed because they cannot have what others have, and ruled by this society-structured nonsense which has no real value in the progress of the morality of the human being.

 

…Just something to think about as we live our lives, whoever you are, whatever you are seeking, and wherever you live…

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.

Filters of your mind.

helen-keller-keep-your-face
Are you stuck and you feel trapped and frustrated…??  It is all an illusion of your anxious ego; for you might have pressures, but you always have room to breathe and choices to make.  It is your ability to see that, what you must have in your mind.

Indecision, overthinking, attachment to your expectations and old habits is the origin of your troubles, isn’t it…??  The prison is your own mind.  Life is just evolving naturally.  Situations and moments are not to be the leaders of how you think, feel and behave.

The situations and moments you live are there for a reason, but they are not there to either lead you to joy or to misery.  You must lead yourself by self-discipline and training your own mind to experience what you desire to experience.

Experiences exist only within you, for what you think is outside you is just really a mirage, a reflection, the way in which physical reality manifests to your senses; but this must not trick you, deceive you, because all you ever experience lives in you and nothing can change that.

Each one of us sees life differently, feels it differently, and chooses differently, just because of that:  Because life, as beauty, is in the inner eye of the beholder, which is within you creating itself by the filters of your mind.  Filters (voices, images, ego, etc) that you must arrange according to your own desires.

Without End.

b47c858736cbb1fe439c9b8d1aedef7c
EXCEPT,  I AM NEVER SORRY ABOUT DESTROYING YOUR IGNORANCE.

So, what part of you gets hurt, troubled, disturbed…??  Isn’t your ego the one which becomes attached to things and people??  And isn’t that attachment springing from fear of loneliness, fear of feeling neglected or inferior in some way, fear of being taken for a fool because you compare yourself to others who seem happier than you??

So, to be hurt, to remain depressed, to compare yourself with others, to feel angry and revengeful, is to be attached; hence, it is to live your life egoistically and immaturely.  Of course, you might want to deny this right now, but that is because your own immaturity currently makes you blind to the depth of it all.

To see beyond your own hurt ego in relationships, and in ALL situations in your life, is to acquire great understanding, which is to analyze yourself and realize that you can observe the ignorance of your own ego activity because you are above and beyond your own stupidity.

When you do this, when you access and expand your self-awareness, you become aware of another, even deeper, mental plane beyond that of your own egoistical vanity and beyond your own illusions of life and the relationships you have in life.

When you access or become aware of this other mental plane, which is harmonious and seeks no self-satisfaction, then you realize you cannot get hurt or “broken-hearted,” and you also realize you are the one who is in control of how you think and feel.

This powerful KNOWING brought by this inner realization brings you the eternal affair with life, such which goes beyond any desire and pleasure you might feel from time to time–i.e., love which never ends and never stops, and happiness which never ends and never stops.

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 Way I must Go.

 

It can be frustrating and daunting to make up one’s mind amidst important life decisions, and it can be truly difficult when drowning in one’s sorrow and confusion in such moments; however, one must remind oneself that no matter how difficult the situation there is always a way to see light and get rid of anxiety.

It is one’s mind the one which gets clouded and confused, drowning in situations and claiming that there is no solution; so, it is one’s mind then the one to be explored and pacified, so that we may become harmony and clarity to create better experiences even in the midst of sorrows and challenges.


“The way I must go”

I met in life situations of thick mud
And I felt lost, filled with deep rage,
Going nowhere, stuck and sad.
Was there in my life another page…??

So I made mistakes quite often,
Paid dearly for each one of those;
But the very falls I tried to soften,
Still my blind mind was full of woes.

But in truth mud is water and dirt,
All nature to help the flower grow;
However I be stubborn and curt,
It is past my ego the way I must go.

I shall be remembering this memory,
Ages and ages to come in my path;
The lessons gave me always energy,
Even though I suffered them a lot.

Beyond the biological machine…

 

hatha_yoga_pradipika_yoga_quotes_37

 

The Breath keeps us alive, it maintains the mortal shell and the “illusion” of the physical.  Oxygen enters our bodies and fills us with life energy in order to function properly within the interactions of this machine we carry.  The gateway to the other dimensions is breathing.  The bridge between what we call life and death.

Once breathing is stopped then, our biological system stays with a few reserves of this life energy so it takes from our cells and its storage to continue brain function; however, soon it runs out and brain starvation occurs due to oxygen lack and this life-giving force (prana).

Now, and this is the interesting part, when we consciously avoid the breath for a few seconds repeatedly the brain becomes strengthened, the mind self-aware–and all this increases brain capacity and emotional connection within the machine.  This is what happens in deep meditation when done properly.

Spiritually wise, we may say that this act or process connects us to what is beyond this physical reality or this very real substance of “illusion.”  Most of the time we live while our subconscious controls breathing, but when we consciously control and break the barriers of mechanical breathing we walk the bridge between this reality and the next.

The ego is sustained, like all our biological functions, through breathing, so it is evident that when we hold our breath and starve our brain for a few seconds repeatedly, in a daily fashion, the ego loses power or influence over the mind because it is not sustained anymore–at least for a moment.

This is what fills us with new cosmic energy and resurrects us every time from the deadly toxins of the ego activity; a break from thought which awakens our whole being and connects us directly to what we truly are beyond our biological machines.
