Self-belief.

Life can be challenging. One can experience loneliness, doubt, jealousy, anger, and a myriad of other darkness. This goes with being human, with exploring ourselves in this physical existence we call life. I went through so much after my father’s death several years ago. I’m sure we have all experienced the impotence and anger in these terrible moments. Our minds make our experiences. From a thought to a feeling, and from a feeling to a constant experience in us. The constant experience can be negative or positive, depending on the first thought we had and nourished into a feeling which grew constant and powerful in us.

There is a well of hope and faith in us in spite of all negativity and struggle. This well is deep inside us, but it cannot be fed by the outside. Sure, you can have people supporting you. Sure, you can also have great self-help books remind you, and religious scriptures too. Sure, you can even have the opportunity to travel and introduce yourself to more inspiring cultures and people. All this may help, but it won’t last. Not unless you find the strength, faith, hope in you in the form of self-belief. Because even if you lose something important to you, or fail at something, or encounter tragedy in any aspect, inner belief will get you out.

Inner belief says “I don’t care what happens in life, I will keep going filled with patience and passion.” Inner belief says “Nothing will stop me, nothing will bring me down; because my focus is on moving on and progressing.” And so, how do you get that strong self-belief…?? By developing yourself, by seeking your passion, by immersing yourself in habits which keep you feeling great about yourself. Great habits are the key in life. Sitting around watching TV and drinking beer with friends, or even by yourself?? Not a great habit. No, I am talking about habits which push you outside of your comfort zone. Habits which add value to your character.

Habits which help you understand yourself and your strengths, like writing, like painting, like sports of strategy, like exercise, like cooking healthily, like educating yourself on science or on any other passion you have. The secret or aim here is to grow as an individual, patiently, step by step, daily; however, it is also about doing something fun, something which ignites your passion and sense of wonder in life. I am personally a big advocate for better habits. I write about self-development, through non-fiction works and now through fantasy works which bring magic, adventure, and also insights into what it is to be alive. I hope you can see the truth in this, and so begin to nourish that belief in you, making yourself unstoppable.

Slaying monsters.

So, what is life…?? And what is your purpose in life?? Too often, we might think that these are very personal questions, and they certainly are. No one can tell you what your purpose is, or what life is. Not even your mother. This is something very personal that you discover as you mature mentally and emotionally. But to discover it, you need a sense of curiosity and adventure. Curiosity and adventure to do what you must and explore the unknown to you.

Because your mind might make you fearful, intimidated, shy before something or someone. This fear might cripple you, make you feel worthless or hurt some way. The nights are long and the days torture when you cower or belittle yourself. These are, of course, barriers; and they are meant to be there. Be glad they are there. Be aware that they are there to help you forge yourself. Life is a big test, and they are its tools to test you.

So, in order to feel true happiness and love, you must be befriend these barriers. Why…?? Because, if you don’t befriend them and keep them as your enemy instead, then your mind will live in a state of constant anxiety. And what does anxiety do…?? It cripples you, it takes over your immune system and it makes you ill. It also gives you bad mood swings, it makes you feel paranoid like life and everyone is against you. So, conquer your fears by making them your friend; and by doing what you must without excuses.

Amidst challenges and fears…

 

7b9ab74b60f1ec2685c1641483ed5a0f

 

To believe in yourself is to let go of your mistakes belonging to past memories, to learn from them and make better choices from now on.

To believe in yourself is to inquire deeply into your psychological traumas and fears, and so to rise above them and lead your life without those burdens.

If you carry your burdens without inquiring into them, without facing them, without understanding why you choose to suffer them, then there is no belief in yourself; for carrying your sorrows will block you from positivity and strength to see the best in you.

To believe in yourself then is to have faith in yourself.  Now, to truly have faith in yourself IS NOT to blindly hope that something good will happen in your life; but it is to ACTUALLY believe (as fact), trust, acknowledge your strengths now so you can lead yourself to a better life moving forward.

Nothing can be accomplished, inwardly and also outwardly, without believing in yourself.  You can put your trust, commitment, faith in others; however, this is just an escape if you do not actually believe in you.

So, learn to see your strengths and adopt positive attitudes towards yourself, even amidst challenges and fears, because this is the only path to transforming yourself into a better person, and your life into a better life.

Possibilities…

Why is it that people feel enslaved to fears, to failures, to things going not as expected…??  Is it because they are betting it all on their expectations, living for their goals and dreams, adding all their energy to a particular achievement…??  Fear is blocking us from living, isn’t it…??  I mean, beyond fear being a challenge to overcome and a necessary tool in the evolutionary kit of mankind, people are not living each moment really with love and happiness; but they are always expecting something better to arrive, something which will get rid of the fear and somehow give them love and happiness, and a certain fulfillment and certainty.
Actwithoutexpectation
And this sickness is an expectation, an egoistical activity which directs all their behaviors, which brings confusion, doubt, all feelings of deeper fear, and that quite often leaves them paralyzed and without self-worth.  Ever wanted to say something to someone, do something, start some project, become something, but you instead allowed thoughts of fear to come into your mind and paint images of what could go wrong or started imagining the worst turn of your story…??  This was your imagination, not your higher conscience or greater intelligence, or some survival mode–i.e., as many of you ignorantly think.
what-if-you-fly

See, following your dreams, your noble passions, setting on your journey of achievement, is experiencing being human, it is indeed discovering yourself and how great you are; however, you must not confuse yourself, whatever your dreams are, whatever your true and noble passions are, whatever you want to experience in the world, is not all you are and it does not limit your expression as a spiritual being.  It is easy to lose yourself on experiences and goals, and it is easy to allow your mind to find your worth in expectations–“my next relationship,” “my new job,” “the next phase of my life,” “my new affections and kindness to friends and family,” “my traveling plans,” “my commitment to this and to that,”  etc. etc.  Putting all your energy and love into this is exactly what, consciously or subconsciously, creates doubt, confusion, fear; because while this, your ego tends to rule and tell you that this is you, that this is what must keep you happy and loving yourself.  But how can it be you if it is a product of your mind/of your ego…?? 
And how is this true love and happiness if it is found in your mind/your ego…??
You  must wake up to this and realize it for yourself, that you must live each moment, that you must put your energy and your heart in each moment and not on a bet or expectation of something in the future…  Live your life knowing that you work each moment so the best unfolds in front of you, because is in the moment where your future and the best things lie…

Incorruptible!

What is character…??  Is it only showing goodness to people, going out and doing charity work, giving blessings to everybody, showing that you care and that you are a saint…??  Is character something of your ego, something which may change at any given time–i.e., “I change my character with certain people,” “I love you but not them,” “I act this way now but tomorrow my character will change”…??

37107878_500681253698575_7828254427323564032_n
No, character is not something which depends on your environment or on the people around you, thus your character must not be corrupted by your emotional moods; so think of your character as something divine, unchangeable, because it really is–opposite to what most ignorant people think it is.

For example, you carry truth and you guide yourself by truth, thus you do not gossip, you do not blame and attack others.  But let’s say one day your friends are gathered doing just this, being obnoxious; and so they call you to be with them.  You do not start gossiping with them just because you want them to like you, but you embrace your divine character, the truth which guides your conscience.  You are your true self alone, with them, and with everybody.

And where does true character start strengthening itself and growing…??  It grows within you, when you are alone, stressed, moody, pressured by your life’s problems.  If you can build and strengthen character by yourself, alone, in your own mind, then, in all situations, you can be a light unto others and you will also remain true to your higher self.  Character is loving truth, loving yourself–not your ego, but the being underneath it.  Divine character is not a display of kind words and gentle activities with others, but it is how you carry yourself with yourself–i.e., how loving you are with yourself in self-talk, how truthful you are with yourself with matters of health and all morality, how understanding you are in life’s difficult situations, etc. etc…  A divine character is a strong character which will not bend or be corrupted by anything at all.  Can you understand this and put it into practice…??

Battle Scars

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”  ~ Khalil Gibran; Lebanese writer, poet, and visual artist.


“Scars show toughness: that you’ve been through it, and you’re still standing.”  ~ Theo Rossi; American actor and producer.


 

Human beings by nature are born to face all challenges and difficulties, the power or strength lies inside, we need only embrace it; however, the ego grows by influence, the mortal mind gets influenced from a crooked and asleep society, and so we grow up programmed like robots, blind to the reality we carry within us.

We all face challenges and develop scars, mental and emotional scars which may trick us into fear and embarrassment. These scars are just reminders of what we lived, they are neutral, not good or bad; but the mind/the ego chooses to suffer the scars or hold the scars proudly; thus, it is not the scars, it is not the memories that are hurting us, but the choices in our minds.

Get your inner child(1)
However we choose to see our scars, the reality is that we have scars for a mighty reason; you have survived whatever happened in your past. The wise sage holds his scars proudly and learns from them.  The fool hides the scars and cries about them, never learning from them.  Choose who you are.

If you are truly awakened to this, you have to know that you are never lonely in your path of life; for you are the heart of humanity itself, you carry knowledge from ancient times which lives in you, and which you can remember by holding your scars proudly and sensing the inner strength of your being. This is the wisdom discovered by alchemical methods and passed on from wise man to wise man, from awakened man to awakened man, since the dawn of time.

 

Always remind yourself then that you are not broken, that by ancient process you are strengthened, that by holding your scars proudly you can do anything.
