Critical…

Stress

Stress is a slow killer–killer of ideas, killer of positive attitude, killer of capacity for joy, killer of all health and good manners. If you have trouble sleeping, if your mind has problems shutting down and relaxing, then check your levels of stress. Personally, I have experience when it comes to stress and anxiety, which is why I started meditation years ago.

It really is that serious. You want to enjoy your life and what you do in it. That is the whole purpose of being alive. So, learn to manage your stress; because, I know, quite often, one may not see one’s stress as a critical life issue. Stress, undiscovered or not acknowledged, leads to many other psychological and physiological issues; and it changes your genes–the content and information of your actual DNA.

Where is found…

Worry

I find that most of the time worry, stress, excessive preoccupation, serves no purpose. Most of the time, it just brings us overthinking while creating all these negative scenarios in our heads. So, if I cannot change it, I let it go. ‘I let it go’ means I cut cords with the thought and feeling, or I stop thinking about it, or I became detached from these.

I move on

Becoming detached from overthinking is not that easy, right?? But we do have to move on, start a new activity that keeps us away from the worry and overthinking. I find this very important, especially so I don’t become obsessed with the past or future. Because moving on is found in the present. So, make sure you stay in your present.

Stories…

Life

One of the most interesting things in life, to me at least, is just that, life itself, how it develops from seemingly nothing to something more and more. From nothingness into a fetus, and from a fetus into an adult.

It is in fact why I created Shadow. Ben’s shadow, who is a magical creature in the infant or early child stage, and who is the 2nd main character in my dark fantasy series BENJAMIN JONES.

Stories in life

Stories are what shape us. Each day in our heads we tell ourselves something, whether positive or negative. So, whatever you tell yourself is what counts. Would you allow yourself to be miserable because the situations in your life don’t match your expectations??

Or would you keep positive even in the face of loss and sad events in your life?? Shadow is a positive character in the series, even silly and childish at times; but that is because he represents the love, the innocence, the curiosity in Ben.

So, he was born from magic and in the image of Ben. Shadow is his shadow. And that is what your life is, a shadow, a projection of your attitudes and character in life. Because, again, stories shape us. So choose your story carefully each day.

A great mind.

Go beyond what you think

I have found that is extremely important to verify the content of our minds. Don’t just remain attached to your opinion, to your belief, to your tradition, to what others have said; but go beyond that and seek to open your mind to new perspectives through new information. This rigid attachment happens mostly to religious people and to people following politics.

I know from experience because I used to be religious. The scriptures, what people close to me said, what was preached in the Bible and in Church. All of it had stolen my ability to seek different perspectives and expand my mind. But I discovered that nothing is more important than to learn to think for yourself, without bias, without anything occupying room in your mind and misleading you.

Mental freedom

The mind is limited by its content. And that is why we must always be learning new things, new information, new science, new philosophies, new life views. Expand your mind’s content to bring freedom to your mind, such is freedom to think for yourself without being attached to anything.

Because what brings stubbornness, anxiety, pride, intolerance of others, is attachment to specific beliefs and viewpoints. Your mind must be free of this in order to understand yourself, others, and life itself. Freedom exists only when the mind is liberated from any attachment, and this liberation then gives you the capacity to open your mind and heart to all.

Being authentic now.

It’s very important to always be yourself and not fall into the anxiety, the game, the struggle of trying to be liked by others. What is true here is that people who truly care about you will accept you for who you are, without you having to deny yourself and pretend to be someone you’re not just to please their egos.

Being lonely is always having to put on an act, to seek to be liked by others, to please others and neglect who you really are deep inside. When you try to be false and pretend just to be liked, then you lose self-awareness, then you lose respect and love for yourself.

This, in time and unbeknownst to you, leads to feelings of worthlessness and self-pity. So, be always honest with yourself, be authentic in your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Do not let the crowd lead you, but you lead yourself.


And if you are into the ‘Harry Potter’, and also the ‘Percy Jackson’ novels, then you’ll enjoy this series about gods, demons, magic, and self-discovery.

In order to better your life…

Everything and anything that enters the mind must be studied, discovered, analyzed and recognized as true or untrue. Does it come from tradition?? Is it a belief, an opinion, a pattern of thinking and feeling that has been created by other people for me to follow blindly??


Do I have real facts that I can prove for it?? Is it rational, logical, real; or is it just my thought and desire for it?? Is it based on anger, frustration, loneliness, lack of identity?? Is it actually helping me grow in the understanding of myself and life, or is it just another illusion believed by billions of empty souls around the world?? Ask yourself all this without making excuses.


Society, and all its systems around the globe, creates illusions to keep on feeding the ego and its emptiness. The economy. The way one should feel and act in certain situations. Traditions. Cultures. The many religions. Politics and its superiority complex. The way everything is romanticized. Fanaticism in all level. Every reality is replaced or buried by a quick illusion that makes people feel less empty.


In consequence, people follow their abominations with a smile, claiming to have the truth and attached to their blind stupidity. Each group does this without even understanding. But only learning to think for yourself will help you see through this abomination.

Don’t follow. Lead yourself.

Have no fear of being yourself. There is no normal. There is no oddity. There is no way to be. We have been influenced to believe that this is the case, that we should be this or that. But people are different. We carry different hurts, different pasts, different experiences. So, the strength, the confidence, the attractive quality does not lie in pretending to be something we’re not, or in falling in intimidation of others for being so-called “normal.”

But everything is really about saying how you think and feel. No fear of messing up. No fear of not being understood. Because any fear you have, even if you think you hide it well, it becomes your burden. This fear becomes an overactive imagination, and overthinking, and anxiety. And as long as this anxiety rules your mind, you remain a slave, you become subconsciously paranoid, and you begin feeling less than others while losing respect for yourself.

And life is really about becoming better morally, learning more, changing to better habits, new dreams, great accomplishments which bring us joy. Self-confidence is required for all this. To gain self-confidence, you have to improve the respect you have for yourself; and this can only be accomplished when you are not feeling less than others, and when your mind is not anxious or trying to be this so-called “normal” like the rest. No, in this life you create yourself; and you lead yourself without letting others influence you. You learn to love by loving as yourself, not by copying others. You learn as you go, by exploring yourself and by becoming active in what you want. Ignore the rest, and do it yourself.


“THE LOOSE DAMNED” – Only on Kindle Vella.

And this following short story is about a rebellious young man, Michael Vega, who gets into trouble, ends up in prison, and then dies.

But this particular story begins when he comes back from hell.  Perhaps he comes back for love.  Maybe for rebellion. 

But, even though you will encounter themes like heaven, hell, and aliens, my real intention here is to help us ponder this life, Creation, and the resurrection of each one of us in our life’s journey.

True intelligence in life.

Throughout the years I’ve learned that knowledge does not really make you a better person, it does not bring illumination or any true intelligence. Unless you apply an expansion of the right knowledge, unless you let go of attachment to that same knowledge, your self-awareness will not increase and your intelligence will not grow. Don’t be attached to any knowledge at all, for it will only make you bias and stupid.

And when I talk about knowledge I am referring to any at all. All information, from any source. Beliefs. Popular philosophies. Scientific data. Politics. Personal opinions. Family traditions. Cultures. And whatever tries to guide you a certain way. Whatever, no matter intention, tries to lead you and take you through a certain path. But all knowledge is good though, we can learn something from it; however, any attachment makes your mind a follower of this particular knowledge while ignoring or condemning any other information which does not fit that first knowledge you worship.

So, we can clearly see that if you follow any particular knowledge then your mind becomes rigid and a believer of that knowledge. This rigidness makes you prideful, arrogant, even violent with others who do not share your particular knowledge. This is important to have in mind specially in relationships. In relationships, to be successful, you must have an open mind and accept the other person as they are. To be truly intelligent, awakened, wise, you must let go of worshiping any knowledge at all; and so, become more open-minded and connected to yourself, to others, to life, without any rigidity.

The aware life

Why is the world the way it is…?? How to see past this..?? How to let go of my own negativity…??

The world can be challenging, people dying of hunger, illnesses, great natural disasters, and every immoral choice you can imagine. No one can deny this. You can see this wherever you look.

But it is in us to wake up each morning and find some miracle in our lives. Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen, I think about the positive that will happen. The positive that will happen is not about what will happen per se; but about my own mental attitude, the content of my thoughts, me letting go of anxiety no matter what happens. It is about my mental freedom. If my self-talk steers away from harmony, if the voices in my head start seeking the negative and loudly shout the pain from failure, then it means that I must become more aware of myself and steer my thoughts towards something positive and helpful in my day.

How you feel, and how you experience life, will be a result of your daily self-talk. Do you punish yourself because you “failed” at something?? Are you judgmental in the way you see your moments in life?? What about the voices in your head about your past…?? Are they loud and always bringing up the heartache and tragedies you lived?? Can you let go of this?? Can you not remain attached to the voices that bring anxiety into your life?? Because if you want happiness, you must let go, you must train your mind to seek positivity in the negative, to see the beauty in the ugly. Not saying this is easy, but just saying this is the only way.

Please see my article about happiness here: The essence of happiness. We can then say that a person’s character is his/her daily thinking. I will become the lover of my life, no matter what happens in it, if I remain self-aware, which is to remain focused in my daily self-talk. I will be what I tell myself daily. If I tell myself daily that life is struggle and that nobody gives me a chance, then that is the way I will remain; because this kind of self-talk is not giving me hope and strength to become better than I am now. But if I tell myself that I can get better and that I will keep on looking for better opportunities, then I will get stronger and change my life; because this kind of self-talk gives me hope and it revives my human spirit.

And it is all about keeping that flame alive (the human spirit), that passion for life which resides in you, maybe buried deeply; however, it never disappears completely as long as you are alive, so seek it. This is your challenge in life. This is my challenge in life. We are all here to keep that flame alive. Because life gets better only in this way.

Courage.

“Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.” ~ Les Brown; American motivational speaker, author, radio DJ, former television host, and former politician.


“When you look in the mirror, what do you see?  Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you?  The two are so, so different.  One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.” ~ David Icke; writer, public speaker.



Focusing on the problems brings more problems to the mind, not less.  The mind tends to limit itself, become narrow and obsessed, and it affects the whole perception of oneself and life; but what the mind needs is to be open, under guidance, it must stop focusing on problems and how big they are, and it must focus instead on the strength to get over them.  Problems are challenges to make you stronger and to help you become what you really are underneath the self-pity and all conditioned fear introduced in you by family, friends, religions, and society overall.

Being unique is a celebration of your inner strength, where you express yourself and free your soul from all those muddy layers of the ego which limit you and tell you that you are not good enough or that you are not meant to be happy.

Courage then is to allow yourself to explore that inner strength in spite of all the people putting you down, in spite of your culture and traditions, in spite of your past memories and bad experiences, in spite of all the fears and confusions; furthermore, courage is to do over and over again through fear and confusion without losing enthusiasm for your own development, for your goal, for your life.


Why are you here if not to be truly the best you can be…??  And why would you allow your mind to be always in constant fear when you deeply know what your heart desires…?? 
You need to decide who you are going to listen for the big choices in your life… either your loud ego and the limitations it designs, or your heart and its Infinite Intelligence without limitations…  So decide.
