This deep inquiry.

Welcome your troubling memories and accept the life you have for what it is, because these are a blessing in disguise.  Suffering is the same as happiness, as joy; but just distorted and made traumatic by the limited mind.

Don’t fear the difficulties and challenges in your midst, because if you did not have them then you could not grow and become stronger, wiser, and with the capacity to understand your own path in life.

Each morning after my meditation, in that place of sweet surrender and exquisite silence of my mind, I think about my past troubles and every challenge I faced.  I wouldn’t be who I am today without them.

Have you ever thought about your own suffering…??  Why you have it??  What is the true reason for life to give that to you??  Truth is in this serious and deep inquiry, and not in escaping it.

You and your suffering, your anxiety, your anger, your troubles are one and the same; but your mind distorts that truth.  Don’t allow it to remain arrogant and steal that truth from you.

Into the abyss.

Hell, or the Avernus, has three gates: Lust, Anger, and Greed. 

-Lust takes us to lose consciousness and fall deep into animal character away from all divinity and illumination–godly states which are the very essence of Love. 
-Anger spawns all kinds of agitation in the mind, it clouds judgement, and brings all diseases into our system by lowering the vibrations of our being. 
-But greed is the very nature of what we may call evil.  Greed fills the mind and it makes it want more and more–i.,e., more and better food, more sex, more money, more things, even more knowledge.

Society is built around greed, it cannot survive without it; this works subconsciously so it plants the seeds in the psyche of the ignorant masses, thus nobody thinks they are being greedy.  Being greedy is a sin unto yourself, to your better evolution as a human and spiritual being.  But nobody becomes truly aware of their greediness, do they…??  Do you…??  It is easy to notice the greediness of the world instead of your own, isn’t it…??  The reason why the mind of the human creature must be self-aware at all times, no exceptions.

Pursuing pleasures mindlessly and obsessively is greed, which most of the time will act subconsciously in you; and the only cure for this is a constant self-awareness.  Greed is everywhere you look, even dressed in religious and saintly clothing.  Fear is pursuing these pleasures, and when fear exists in the mind/when the pursuit of pleasure exists in the mind then all love for God and for your true self is gone.

Slave to existence.

Desire, and the roots of desire, is a big topic for all of us, even for those who do not consciously see it as a big topic; because desire is everything you are as a human being, it is how you can accomplish things, it is how you live day by day:  You desire to keep the passion alive in your relationship.  You desire to become a better person.  You desire to have more knowledge.  You desire to better your finances.  You desire to love yourself more.  And the substance of desire moves us forward from one minute to the next, acting consciously and subconsciously all throughout our lives.

Desire then, being the root of our day by day interactions, thoughts, feelings, fuel for doing everything, is also our downfall or destruction when it becomes too much desire/obsession:  You obsess over your financial situation.  You obsess over sex.  You obsess over knowledge.  You obsess over your appearance and your intelligence.  All this is desire uncontrolled, desire ruling you instead of you ruling it.  So, desire, the magic fuel of our very humanness, the heart of good deeds and of evil deeds as well, can become an obsession if unguarded, if there is no self-awareness.  It can enslave you with and without your knowledge, can it not…??

And why would you say that is…??  Because desire is the very root of existence.  In the story of Adam and Eve, Adam disobeys God and tempted by Eve eats of the forbidden fruit; so because of desire Adam and Eve disobeyed God – an unbalanced desire brought this.  Desire is then good, it is the fuel behind great things; however, it is desire unguarded that which destroys man, because desire unguarded brings great anxiety, uncontrolled passion, rebellious obsession, and all agitation to the mind.

Mastering life…

“When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are.  The dog is not judging you.  We have much to learn from a simple dog.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle; German-Canadian spiritual teacher, public speaker, and author.


“I hate prejudice, discrimination, and snobbishness of any kind, it always reflects on the person judging and not the person being judged.  Everyone should be treated equally.” ~ Gordon Brown; British politician.


 

Life allows us to make different paths, and that exactly shapes people, and by the choices we make under any circumstance we are forging our journey along this path; this is something unique which is the heart of our level of living and understanding.

And nobody is better than anybody due to having different experiences; we are all different, perhaps with a lower or higher thinking depth, perhaps we have taken our time to meditate on ourselves or not, but we are all here to learn from our unique and challenging experiences.

Sometimes people make the mistake of seeing a rich person, a bully, an angry person, a hateful person, etc., and think that they have it easy or that they are evil because of their words or because of the violence they commit.  But, the truth that your untainted heart knows, and that your ego may quarrel with, is that we have all gone through experiences and lifestyles that have shaped us as the human beings we presently are, and many times the choices we have made out of ignorance were not the best ones. 

But whether you understand this and tolerate it or not is a reflection of you, not of the people you judge.

This speaks of your own knowledge of self and of the control you have of your mind, such must be always a peaceful and harmonious mind in order to see through all prejudice and anger from the rebellious ego.

 

You must accept people the way they are, even if we are talking about Hitler himself; because nobody is born evil, but the choices and the experiences growing up make good or evil.  Learn to be the sage, the wise one who can see through this veil of prejudice.

And with this I am not saying that we should hug and kiss every damn idiot out there who rapes, murders, bullies, and even that talks down to you; however, I am saying that we must keep our minds peaceful and free of anger and anxiety, and I am saying that we must keep the attention on ourselves and not on judging others, because while you hate and judge others you are distancing yourself from self-love, you are letting evil into your own mind to take over, you are the one choosing wrong now, you are the one committing the sin.

Think about it and be wise in your own daily choices.
