Potential for happiness.

So, how does one choose what’s important in his life…?? How does one measure happiness?? The essence of happiness. Now, one thing to understand is that pleasure and happiness are two different things. Pleasure is something of the mind and relevant for this society, like money, like the need to form relationships, like a career, like the need to belong to a group. This could be good or bad. Your choice. But a deeper look into happiness tells us that happiness in none of these things. What happens if all these things I have mentioned are taken away…?? How would you feel if there is no money, no relationship with another, no career, no support and validation from a group??

Happiness, on the other hand, is something which exists in you, no matter what you have or do not have. Money cannot give you happiness for example. Money is good, but it can only give you pleasure. The pleasure to buy the food you like. The pleasure to support yourself and your family financially. The pleasure to travel. The pleasure to buy a computer and connect through the internet with millions of people. And all this pleasure is necessary or not in our societies, but it is not relevant to happiness. Just because you have money, a family, a career, or belong to a political or religious group, does not mean you’re happy. Happiness is in you, in your thoughts of inspiration and positivity; however, it has nothing to do with the superficial, even if important to you, achievements in society.

I have written an article which expands on our inner capacity. Please take a read. Hope you find it helpful: Strength. Courage. Passion.

This leads us to Great intelligence. This intelligence is not intellectual. This intelligence is highly moral, of your heart, and it speaks loudly of your inner spirit. Money cannot give you this intelligence. Books, family, religion, politics, cannot give you this intelligence. Because this intelligence is the capacity in you to be happy. Love and happiness. Plain and simple. You may have had a terrible childhood. You may have had a tragic trauma. You may be carrying much distress, loneliness, misery right now; however, the magic to actually be happy despite this still is in you. When you were a child, it was there. But as you grew up, the stress of this society, the stress to make money, the stress to build family life, the stress of disliking other religions and political parties affected you. You, subconsciously, without knowing, allowed it to happen. But you can still recover this if you reach deep within you, but it takes surrendering your anxious mind to your heart.

This one is about a little hope, learning through life, and the strength to do it. Thought it could be relevant as well: Thus Awaken…

Thanks for reading. If interested, read this one about the main characters of my new young adult/fantasy novel titled “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman.” I am really proud of these characters: BENJAMIN JONES. Fiction characters.

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.

The Greatest Clarity.

So, I was thinking the other day about imagination, the power to create, not just works of art but to create solutions and a better life for oneself. Because that is what imagination does. Imagination is meant to expand our minds, not make us more intellectual but more compassionate and able to create from emotional understanding. The more imagination, the more you will understand of yourself, life, others. The more imagination, the more intelligence.

As a writer of nonfiction, of spiritual and self-help, and now of young adult fantasy books, I know the great gifts of imagination. I know how strengthening this “muscle” in your mind gives you expansion of mind and great wisdom. And I was writing the other day, just finishing my young adult novel coming out soon, titled “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman” which I am planning to make a series.


I was thinking how many of us simply fall into addiction and depressions due to not strengthening imagination. If you have imagination, then you can envision yourself happy, in love, positive, without anxiety and addictions. How wonderful it is to see yourself better in your mind, and then it is easier to adopt healthier habits. This is something which intelligence gives you. True imagination expands your intelligence, so you see yourself making better choices. And if you can see it, then you can change and do it.

Stillness.

87959969_645891919520197_1631966042085392384_o

That place

When thoughts are wild,

When the tempests are violent

When the mind is racing,

I seek that place within me,

That place of peace and freedom,

That place of love and intuition.

 

Life’s pressures require an intelligent approach.  When the mind is anxious and stressed, it wastes too much energy.  Then it needs to recharge in the stillness.  When we feel like this, we must meditate.  Not crowding your mind with thoughts.

Freedom is in this.  In allowing the mind to step away from wasting energy; and so, recharge itself.  This is meditation.  It is focusing on your breath entirely without allowing your mind to fill itself with energy-stealing thoughts.

Great intelligence.

 

Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes (5)

Your mind chatters, judges, rebels, gets loud, attaches to all thoughts and beliefs, tries to win the argument with another person; and so, it loses intelligence.  Intelligence, great insight and understanding, is not of the mind.  Intelligence comes from the body without the chattering mind, for it comes from intuition.

For the mind to allow intelligence in it, the mind must stop the chatter–i.e., stop the attachment to pursuing something in life, and stop thinking so much all the time.  When the mind does this, it becomes still; and, when it becomes still, it empties itself to allow intuition, pure energy, great intelligence to enter.

The basics of understanding.

 

krishnamurti-quotes-2

 

Understanding is really different for each one of us.  Most people think that they understand something when they create their intellectual beliefs and ideologies; but this just creates the illusion of intelligence, of true understanding, and it designs pride in people.

What drives the human being is emotional, which it is to really take whatever you know to heart; furthermore, this emotional drive makes you change, real and immediate change in your life. This is true understanding. True intelligence. True enlightenment.

So, if you intellectually see the truth of being healthy, the truth of not being attached to anything and to anyone, the truth of real patience, it does not mean you understand anything at all.  This does not mean you are intelligent.  Accumulation of knowledge is not intelligence, understanding, or enlightenment.

The ONLY true understanding is change, which is the core of intelligence, which is sheer enlightenment.  Thinking truth is a mere illusion of the ego that you tell yourself in your own vanity, because it does not create true morality in your daily actions.

Now, one who TRULY understands truth is not responsible for another’s understanding or lack of it.  Each one of us is responsible for our own morality or immorality in action.  I am only responsible for myself, for speaking and behaving with truth; and so, I am not responsible for what you or others understand, or do not understand.

The dawning of wisdom.

 

knowing-yourself-is-the-beginning-of-all-wisdom-300x300

 

Look deeply into your troubles, into the anger you feel, the loneliness, the envy, the heavy stress, the obsessive desire to possess someone or something; and discover the buried thinking patterns, so you can rise above that feeling and realize that you are bringing this onto yourself.

Complications, hardship, suffering is the construct of our petty, little minds when attached to our physical perceptions.  Everybody seeks dating, commitment, marriage, kids; thus, you observe this, you attach a “happiness” and “love” label to it, and so you develop the desire to copy.

You see others get wealthy, better jobs, expensive cars, great shopping; therefore, you believe that this is the “normal,” that this is what happiness really is, and that you desire to be part of this tradition and collective desire of the unconscious masses.

So, you do this, you struggle to be part of all this society nonsense, and you even fill your mind with constant anxiety in the process.  Why…??  Does it make you truly happy??

Do you even truly understand why you obsess about this and feel the nagging need to be this way, always seeking, copying, competing??  So, this is your ego, the secret obsession you have to achieve more and more; but you judge if it works for you or not.

Inquire into yourself and find out why you seek this and desire to achieve and even belong to the collective, because if you do not inquire into it then you will never really understand yourself, your life, and what love and happiness are beyond any petty desires you may have.

Aging and your mental garbage.

 

662-you-cant-help-spiritual-quotes-to-live-by

 

So, most people see themselves aging, wrinkles, losing muscle mass, less energy; and so, they believe that they have to accept this, and so they let themselves go either because they are lazy or because they believe that the mind will age as the body.

But they feel old and aging, losing youth and becoming depressed at this, not because of the passing of time but because of their irrational and immoral belief.  To respect and love yourself is to really ponder this, and take the necessary steps every day to become healthier, sharper, more open-minded.

Aging is really a gift from life, and you only experience this as a gift if you take care of yourself.  Do you have extra body fat which invites illness and weakens your immune system??  And what about eating the wrong foods and quantities, thus making your ability to think slower, duller, close-minded??

Why would somebody intelligent age this way, unhealthily, immorally, as an insult to yourself and as a bad example to others…??  The excuse of having no time is your excuse, isn’t it??  When you develop true love, respect, illumination, then you see beyond all these pitiful excuses.

But when will YOU see the truth about life, you keep aging but you never see it.  Why??  Life is your chance to see this, so make sure you get rid of the mental garbage which does not let you see it.

A creative and intelligent mind.

 

Creativity, or the essence of creativity, what fuels the creative process, is not of the busy mind or of the ego; but it comes from beyond that, and in order to tap into it, or in order to access it, one must quiet the mind.  And how do you quiet the mind…??

By observing an introspective or meditative life, a life that is not always busy and noisy, in an environment which offers calm and focus.  When the environment and the body surrender to this quietude as a daily practice, then the brain alters, changes its structure and functioning, and so it access this creative essence easily.

This creative essence is intelligence, it is the purity beyond the noise of the mind, to thus understand life and yourself.  Because that is what intelligence truly is:  Creativity in its purest essence, not only to create art, but to understand life at a deeper level.

The anxious and stressed mind, frustrated and busy, cannot access this pure creativity; for what fills it escapes harmony and calmness, and in doing so creates a psychological environment of pure suffering.  And how can intelligence live in this hostile environment…??
