Relationships of honesty.

 

df1eecac8f17fc164b91a367956d74dd

 

In any relationship what matters is your daily behavior towards the other person.  One truly knows the affections of another by treatment, by living it, by observing the relationship and its course.  Words are desires in the moment, how we feel; but, as nice as this sounds, they are not reality.  Behavior is reality.

Truth is honesty.  A strong character showing sweetness and respect.  This is what is required to connect and grow a relationship.  And it needs a silent mind.  A mind which does not seek self-satisfaction but honest communion.

 

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.

Review: “I really loved the depth of your approach, specially because sometimes I struggle with low self-esteem and that gets into my relationship with my new wife.  Thanks for helping us become aware of all these things.  Much love to you and yours.”

Review: “It allowed me to see another explanation of love..with a touch of humor i was able to find a sensible place to kick back to enjoy knowing I have always been Loved!!  YOUR advice is like finding a treasure. Thank you so much sharing!”

Your power.

 

index

 

Do not pretend.  Do not try to sell yourself to others.  Do not specifically act in order to be approved by others.  Be always yourself, with your ignorance, with your great understanding, with your flaws, with your strengths.

The first thing you must realize is that your happiness, your joy, love for your own life, dwells in your very character; therefore, you must be true to yourself, always, without excuses.

Your power as a human being is in acting completely honest and true to yourself.  Life will be a mirror to you, so if you pretend, or if you are fake in any way, then life and what you experience will be measured by this–by your character.

You have to mature and see that the only person to love and to dignify, value and respect, is you; and then you can be a true individual and light the path in your life’s journey.  Meanwhile, lighting also the path of others.

See something useful.

 

love-great-work

 

There has to be a sense of dignity and honesty in all you do, from talking to yourself each moment to going to work hours and hours.  It does not matter what it is you do, it must originate from a positive and proactive place in your mind.

If your full attention and heart are not in it, then you will start to hate the task; and you will complain and begin to bring some negativity into your life.  And then things will get worse.

Because when your mind starts dwelling in the ugliness, in the negativity, in the drama of something in your life, then your whole experience in all aspects will get tainted, poisoned; thus, your persona will become affected, your choices will become affected as well.

Love is the deep connection that you need in all things you do; no excuses, no overthinking it, just make yourself see something useful in each activity you engage.

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.

The Kindness Given.

 

A woman did help a desperate friend to cope with life and mental anxiety right after a sudden divorce, after her friend was left by her husband and two grown up kids.

She was also helped with a new job and moral support.  The woman helping her friend was a very nice and kind person, morally upright, and saw herself as doing kindness in helping her friend without expecting anything in return.

But at the same she carried a little resentment after she had helped her friend for almost a year, because as nice as she was she had subconsciously been expecting a thank you and a heartfelt speech of gratitude from her friend who was now traveling to live with her mother and doing much better.

Now, this can be misunderstood by people when you are not truly awakened and aware of your ego.  Expecting a thanks or some kind of recognition or gratitude is actually doing business, and doing business is a trade for your own benefit, your own profit–i.e., I help you, you give me psychological and emotional rewards by giving me gratitude and by owing me one if I ever need your help.

This business, which you might carry out unconsciously, is not doing something out of your kindness, no matter what society says or teaches about this.  If you do help somebody, you do it ENTIRELY out of your heart and without ANY expectation of benefit whatsoever.

If you expect something, even small, in return for your kindness, isn’t that turning into business…??  So, when you do something, you do it right because you feel morally guided to do right, and not because you seek some emotional benefit for the building of your ego.

Study yourself in this.  Do not allow yourself to be unconscious when it comes to giving; for love only gives, expands outwardly, it does not make business or trades–only the ego trades and expects some sort of reward for kindness given.

A Powerful Personality.

 

ade5ca75464225370f604f024517343b

 

The character, the morals and ethics, the integrity of someone shines in his personality, in the way he moves about things in his life, in the way he interacts with others and in the handling of situations.  Personality shines brightly in the better behavior and attitude towards others and towards life situations.

This is opposite to what many people believe, that personality is mostly in your intentions and thoughts, and in your words and personal life philosophies.  Of course, all this is also important, as thoughts, intentions, words, philosophies of life, are the origin and the glue of the better person and society; but, however, they DO NOT create your actual personality.

Your personality, as stated, is shown and strengthened in your daily behaviors; therefore, if you think kindness and say kindness, then you also have to live kindness through better behaviors.  Higher morals and ethics only exist if the personality is shining brightly in better behaviors.

Now, a good personality based on true integrity must not be rigid.  You cannot be attached to one way of being or behaving, leaving out the better understanding and tolerance of others different from you; so, the superior or better personality must be able to adjust to different environments and to different people, different lifestyles, different views and even behaviors different from yours.

This way of seeing life and universally behaving, without rigidness, without any attachment to your own ways of thinking and behaving, allowing tolerance and understanding towards others, brings power to your very presence, it attracts opportunities and people to your better personality.

You enter a room and you shine, you approach people and they immediately feel your persona, you become attractive in deeper ways, and your character makes you more able to accept your own life and that of others with love and openness, without getting frustrated easily, without stressing yourself easily and without any rigidness whatsoever.

No escape…

34ad1c754ae06b76427b3c707c792920

 

There is no escape, because all you think, feel, experience, even things which annoy you in life, is your own mind, your own intolerance and self-designed suffering; thus, everything happens in your mind, so escaping in any way is pointless, it all comes back to you–especially memories and all life’s problems.

Transformation from one sensation, way of thinking, feel, experience, into another one which begets positive vibration, positive experiences in you, is what you must do.  Transformation from within is to create yourself; so, a better you who does not seek a pointless escape from life.

dd7237d666a1739b5a6d8d1387100637
And so many people try to distract themselves from themselves, from their deep feelings and experiences, that it has become “natural” for them to avoid unpleasant feelings and even responsibilities in their lives by seeking pointless entertainments, drugs, alcohol, overeating, relationships, group activities, travels, etc. etc.

They all seek some form of escape either from themselves or from their current lives, not knowing or realizing that this ignorant process only adds to the emptiness and annoyance they feel.

Everything that annoys you or makes you uncomfortable about your life or about yourself, indeed, is there to stay whether you like it or not; however, transmutation or transformation is the internal process of change and creation to reach that peace and harmony you might seek–which you definitely need to love yourself, your experience, and your life.

All origins are born within you, and all can be mended and created from within you.  Your life and everything you experience in it is born from within you, so you must remain aware of this and create or transform, build or fix from within you.

 

No escape, but transformation.

Allow it to guide you…

You must realize what is really important in your life.  You must make a conscious decision between what your intellect tells you and what your heart tells you.  A good and prosperous life is not a life guided by intellect, but one guided by the empathy and understanding of your heart; thus, you must live and love untainted by the rigidity and vanity of the ego.
fall-2015-peace-week-spirituality-the-ocean-2

Be aware of the people around you who is decent and who desire the best for you, quite often not perfect but with a pure and honest heart; for these persons might not be well-educated or even have the same ideas, aspirations, and beliefs you have, but they may bring you the emotional drive you need in certain moments of struggle.

History is full of people whose vanity and pride was so big that they left behind their loved ones and the people who truly cared for them just to follow their egos and chase after superficial conquests–i.e., women, men, money, higher class, more hours at their job, etc. etc.  Sometimes what we chase is not better per se but pure vainglory, because we are trying to escape our own emptiness, insecurities, feelings of inferiority, and any fears perhaps from past memories.

Honesty is the best policy and so you must be honest with yourself, and make sure you surround yourself with the people that truly loves you and cares for your development; and no matter what happens learn to understand them and forgive their faults, because no one is perfect and we all need each other…  In a world which is so vain and superficial, where family, friendship, and love is just the second-class citizen, you must raise yourself above this and become a free and compassionate individual–i.e., remember what is truly important, be guided by your heart…

Do not seek to see…

True success is the combination of love and happiness, because whatever you seek to attain must be sought with love in your heart and in your mind, such love in your heart and mind means happiness; for to be filled with love is to see beauty and delight in life, in the good and the bad times, and to see beauty and delight is to be truly happy.
And specially when it comes to financial or other material success, people deceive themselves in seeking first outwardly, then inwardly (if that ever happens, of course); therefore, they ignorantly allow their attention to fall upon their situations and the money they make with each paycheck…  But have you analyzed, really observed, how any success is truly born…??

22aa97806f15c5c0bc69d9b8fc17f9d4
I am not talking about people being born rich and successful, because that is another matter which does not concern me or interest me at all.  But I am talking about the more “normal” people like you and I, who are not born in golden crib but born in struggle and financial fluctuation; and our success then, it is not something we should seek to see, because most of the time success is not seen.  Like I said before, success is the combination of love and happiness, which must be born in you with honesty and heart.  And can you actually see love and happiness…??

No. You must cultivate that first within you like a seed, then, if you are patient and focused on your duty, you will create outwardly, you will harvest from that seed.  Your inner world creates your outer world.  So, do not be discouraged if you do not see success around you, for you must be patient.  Don’t ask how patient!  But be patient and do not quit… ever!

It all comes to you at the right time.

“And success … seems to be connected with action.  Successful men keep moving.  They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”  ~ Conrad Hilton; American hotel tycoon and the founder of the Hilton Hotels chain.

Are you still seeking…??

Thoughts are obsessive seekers, as in to become something, to find answers to something, to be guided by something, to attain something, are they not…??  And what are then human beings if not seekers, always searching and desiring to be taken somewhere by the hand…??  But true love and happiness reside beyond seeking, beyond the never-ending struggle for more.  Have you realized that within you yet…??

55df4734a85fe7be3bc1b5f928384e65--random-quotes-positive-thoughts
That is the whole problem, as people spend their lives thinking for too long and asking others, always seeking for the thrill of the answer from others, never actually bringing change to their lives, missing the proactive way of living.


When most people think about meditation, thoughts come up, questions fog the answers, thus they seek without actually seeing the truth of it.  They desire to know how.  Techniques.  What happens in meditation.  What does meditation bring.  How can they start.  And they get answers from somebody else, they never meditate on them, and then they continue seeking and asking the same questions over and over again.  And this does not bring any change into their lives, but it only fuels more questioning, more empty seeking, and more frustration because they are not developing the way they must.

It is Being, meditation is.  Right now your intellect agrees with me; meditation is Being.  But you really don’t know what Being really is, do you…??  You need to have the actual experience to realize in your heart what it means, and you haven’t meditated.  Or have you seriously, deeply meditated…?? …

The witness knows all.  Fish, sharks, whales, they all swim and roam the waters of the big ocean; so, they know only what they see and experience as they are swimming by, going from here to there.  But the ocean waters stay always there, they witness the moon, the sun, the storm, the rain, the cold, the heat, and all beings swimming in them.  They never change.  The ocean waters are the ultimate witness.

Your thoughts are the beings swimming, and you are what holds them, what witness them.  You are indeed the unchanging witness.  And to know the silent and wise, Enlightened and divine, witness that you are, you must go beyond the beings swimming, you must be one with meditation.  The witness has no questions, knows no effort, brings no fear and anxiety.  The witness is life itself without the fogginess and chaos created by your humanity…\

Now, would you experience it yourself…??

“You should not be carried away by the dictation of the mind, but the mind should be carried by your dictation.” ~ A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami; Indian Gaudiya Vaishnavism spiritual teacher, guru, founder preceptor (Acharya) of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, and author.
