Peace with yourself.

    • If your mind is focused on others, then your mind is not focused on you.  That brings anxiety into you, loneliness, feelings of self-neglect.  It might happen subconsciously.  But after this, you act out, you become impulsive, irrational, negative with yourself and with others. 

    • So, keep your focus on yourself.  Battle yourself to find yourself.  Better yourself.  Let others be.  Don’t allow what others think and do to affect you.  People don’t do things to you, but you do it to yourself by clinging on to thoughts of attachment about them.  Life is a miracle to be discovered in you, so keep seeking it in you.

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.

Welcome your life.

 

Gratitude

There is no better attitude you can have than that of constant gratitude, even if situations are not ideal.  Gratitude in your heart and mind, as you get up in the morning, during your day, and as you lay yourself to sleep at night.

Gratitude for the things you experienced, for the person you are even with your personal issues, for the desires you have to make your life better, and for the people around you–even the ones you do not like as much.

Nothing is perfect and that is okay, because that is just the spice of life and why it is so interesting to be alive and experience sadness and joy, the ups and downs, knowing that you have grown up and that you still have much to learn yet.

Your life is your mind.  Your life is the good or bad illusion your mind creates based on the content you allow.  You keep your mind positive, clear, truthful, guided by facts and love, and PATIENT most of all; and so, that is just what you will get as experience in your life.

About changing you.

 

tolerance2

 

Sometimes ignorance seems to lead people’s interactions, even among loved ones, and this may bring harsh words, impulsive actions, even immoral attitude.  But life must be lived with an open mind, and we must see past our mistakes and anxious reactions; for we all need each other, and we must hold on to the ones who really care.

Conversation should seek connection and honest desire to help us realize things; it is not meant to compete with one another and blame, or to see who is superior and who is inferior–which is an ignorant and immature game in itself.

Relationships can be complex and challenging if we seek to show off or win, it can lead us into disaster; and that is the attraction of something, the challenge, but the challenge to see past our anger, our frustrations, and so connect with one another.

And what brings understanding is an open-minded conversation which seeks us to be equals, not to show what we know or how strong we are.  If someone seeks competition, let it go and do not seek the same but seek harmony.  The mind must be kept positive in order to understand and think clearly.

No one is above this, for we all must engage in relationships one way or another; and so, each one of us has a responsibility to bring the maturity and harmony into it, even if the other person appears irrational and stubborn.  See, it is not about changing them, but about changing you.

And sometimes we have to walk away to keep our peace and harmony, but some other times we can help people understand, not by raising the voice and becoming participants of the game of competition; but by being truthful and firm, but kind and detached to make them see our views.  Because it is not about changing them, but about changing you.

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.

Greater sense of origin.

From the earth we came, and to the earth we shall come back.  The rocks, the trees, the animals–they all know and see this at a subconscious level. To beings of higher potentials, of higher awareness, of further awakening, this must become our very knowing, and thus from our subconscious enter our conscious; to know that we are the earth, and the sky, and the whole cosmos.  The sage finds comfort in this, love and happiness in knowing this; the vaster humility and yet the greatest pride, understanding of nature, of God, of the universe, is in embracing this.  When you truly know this in your bones, in your blood, in your mind, then you become illumined and you expand yourself, knowing that you are all of it.  And when you are all of it, then there is nothing unknown to you, nothing to worry you or stress you–i.e., no fear at all. 
Fear comes to the mind because it projects, it wonders, it is disturbed by things unknown; thus, the mind seeks to know, it seeks control, comfort, answers, and so not finding answers it fears.  But if you are all of it, answers and all, then there is no room for fear and life becomes joyful at each turn.  Can you not see it…??  The relationship competitions, the money issues, the comparing and envying, the lack of confidence, etc.–it all seems so pitiful and pointless when you become whole and guided by the light in your conscience, when you have woken up and see everything in perspective.

When you know your origins, your true origins, then harmony and understanding come to your mind, to your conscience; and then your whole life shines brighter, and even when you see ugliness and unfairness happening in the world your understanding allows you to remain calm, collected, superior and above all conflict that is both far and near you….  And there is no other manner to embrace this higher knowledge but as individual experience, within you, crossing that border of thoughts and feelings, sensing that greater origin in you…

Intelligence seeker.

How to find psychological balance-and, most importantly, an emotional understanding that is deeper and brighter–in a world where there is no balance–where everybody settles for mediocrity and where the mind just follows the latest trend and gossip…??
They key is always balance, in all we do and experience, in all we think and suffer, in all we feel and project into the world as vibrations; and to find this balance one must be self-aware at all times, make it a daily practice to find reason in your own thinking patterns and physical behaviors, This shall bring a greater emotional understanding of life, perhaps slowly, perhaps in a quicker way–depending on the personality of the individual. Two kinds of mental personalities:

1) The fiery and intense personality shall discover intelligence at a faster pace, because the secrets of nature and the subconscious forces of the collective merging with the individual require flaming curiosity and intensity of the heart passions. This is seen more in the introvert, as the introvert tends to rationalize and meditate on the inner world more than in the outer one; he/she finds freedom in the emotional mind, the world seems to make more sense rationalizing it inwardly.

2) The shy and quiet personality, which can discover intelligence at a slower pace by focusing on more scientific and rigid terminology, no mixing Gnosis (or knowledge of the emotional self) with other subjects. This one inquires into established paradigms and programs, getting to the truth slower (if ever). This one lives more in his head, and battles more doubts and afflictions of the ego entity.

But both seek something.  Something to bring some harmony and intelligence into their affairs… Question is, how do they seek it, and where do they seek it…??  💖🔥🙏

And then I took a walk outside my home and I saw this.  Can you believe it!

Art of Life.

Thought is king in your life, it tells you what you are, how to react, what to do, how to love, how to communicate, how to feel and see life, right…??  All you know about the world and yourself is because of thought, which is imagination, beliefs, ideas, memories, knowledge of society and of the world as seen through your physical senses.  But have you ever asked yourself what it would feel to have absolutely no thought in your mind…?? 

35686747_479603309139703_8236662313449422848_n
Since thought creates feeling, if you have no thought in mind what would you feel…??  Would you feel dead…??  Would you feel empty, neither happy nor sad….??  Would you feel freedom as you never felt before…??  Your spirit, your soul, is always trapped or veiled by thought–so, if you had no thought, would your spirit, your soul, be completely liberated from bondage…??  But only you can experience this miracle.  You can read about it, you can watch videos on meditation from masters, you can fill your mind with lectures from men who seriously meditate; but, alas, you will never experience it this way, you will never actually feel every muscle and nerve in your body soothe you and the warming sensation in your bones while your mind becomes incredibly clear and illumined in no-thought if you just hear it or read it from others.
Existence goes deeper, and is truly appreciated beyond what your thought can tell you, in a state of absolutely no-thought.  Why do you get depressed, lonely, angry, frustrated, jealous, and the rest at times…??  Isn’t it because of thought…??  You may say, “but you cannot live life in a continuous no-thought state.”  True.  It is because of thought that you can physically interact in the world.  But thought takes much energy from you, thought is fueled by pure consciousness energy; therefore, a daily state of no-thought takes you deeply into Source, so energy is flowing healthily and freely throughout your body and there is no thought to consume it, thus it gives your very cellular makeup strength, stamina, intuition, illumination.
Deepak-Chopra-Meditation-quote-Anthony-Profeta
During your day as you normally use thought then, you have already experienced no-thought state and mastered the better usage of energy; consequently, you illumine yourself on the uses of thought–i.e., you understand how anger, frustration, stress, and all fear consume your energy, and so you become highly self-aware of your desires, ideas, beliefs, intentions, behaviors.  And this is exactly why to master a state of no-thought is an art–namely “The Miraculous Art of Life.”

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.

Keeping the peace.

“What is tolerance?  It is the consequence of humanity.  We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly.  That is the first law of nature.”  ~ Voltaire; French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher.


It is really easy to give in to anger and all sorts of anxiety, specially when dealing with really stubborn and illogical people–i.e., people of set beliefs, fixed ideas, attached to traditions of old, and all this nonsense people fall into out of sheer ignorance and a lazy mind. Basically most people fall into this category, but quite often these still can be good and decent people, people who try to do their best even with the mental conditioning they have, and sometimes people do not try to even do their best.  It can be really frustrating to deal with this erratic crowd.


a022e424da034adcb5cb4c005411d43e--disrespect-quotes-tolerance-quotes
But we have to remind ourselves that people come from all sorts of places, environments, families, and with all different experiences that have shaped their minds one way or the other; so, for better or worse, these individuals must be seen from a psychological level, not just to understand what we can understand about them but to keep your own mind in peace when dealing with them.

And your mind must remain in peace and harmony, because, even though it can be difficult at times, it is all about you and not them, it is all about communion with yourself through a mind which is not in any agitation whatsoever.

Each one of us has a purpose for being the way we are, and we may not understand why this or that person reacts one way or the other, or why this or that person thinks one way or the other; however, life is conscious and wise, and it is not our business or concern to straighten them out or make them better.  Your only concern must be your own self and to show respect and love for people, and if they don’t care for you then just walk away and keep your ego tamed.

Watch your own ego, which always wants to fix everything and everybody.

In the footsteps of the master.

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.”  ~ Lao Tzu.


“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.”  ~ Sun Tzu.


The way of peace is knowing yourself, and this way is practiced by the superior mind; because the superior mind knows and deeply understands that confidence and power can only flower when the human mind is resting in the silence of internal peace and harmony–i.e., peace from the agitated mind, and harmony with the true self. 
Furthermore, this confidence and power flowering in the peaceful mind is what can conquer all your battles in life, overcome all obstacles, attain all victories over negative circumstances and mediocre naysayers, for this mind is free from all outside nuisances and pressures, for this mind stands on its own.

9fa2c32a80a283130299691ffd04d5fa

The Tao (The Way to Enlightenment/The Source of Everything) in its unmatched wisdom says,  “But knowing harmony creates abstraction, and following abstraction creates ritual.  Exceeding nature creates calamity, and controlling nature creates violence.”  This says, ‘Knowing harmony, living and experiencing a wise and peaceful mind, creates the deep analysis and study of profound ideas, profound philosophies for a better life; and so, following this abstraction or greater philosophies, creates superior habits and thus ways of the superior mind.’
Then it explains, ‘Trying to force nature, and everything that happens in your life, brings chaos into your life; and controlling nature and outside events, creates an agitated mind and all violence.’

You must clear your thoughts from all agitation whenever you see obstacles and people wanting to hurt you in any way; for only with a clear and pure mind you may think straight and arrive to a solution or to an inspiring idea.  And when you need to become firm and fearless, fight people’s arguments and life challenges head on, then be also calm and confident because the energy of your own mind, of peace and harmony, will create your reality, will dictate the outcome of your experience.

The fool initiates quarrels and rebellions because he is full of fear/rage and hate, and his mind does not think clearly due to an inferior understanding/an inferior mind; however, the wise and superior mind of the sage remains peaceful and confident because nothing from the outside moves him, he is in constant meditation and harmony with his true self.

23621966_387810854985616_3216819148446940544_n
The sage is the one who really holds the power.
