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.

The path of love

Love

The purpose of life is love. We all want to experience love. Seeking love, which is all the good and happiness, man falls into fear of not having it. This fear makes mankind do horrible things–like war, like bullying, like cheating and hurting each other, etc.

But all this fear creates a bigger distance and pushes away any capacity for love in us. Love then is a peaceful mind and not a mind which seeks desperately. Love must not be sought. Love must be discovered in you.

Beyond the conventional

To be discovered in you then, the seeking has to stop. Jumping from relationship to relationship. Going out with friends all the time. Pretending for others just to be accepted. All this has to stop.

As long as the mind seeks, obviously, the mind is too busy with the external to discover the internal. And for love to be discovered then, you must be fully aware of the internal. It is a rebellious path, because you must go against the norm that says to look outside you.

Greatest knowledge

Knowing yourself

Sounds too spiritual, doesn’t it?? Sounds like some ‘Buddha mysticism’, right?? Well, it’s simpler than that actually. It means to understand the deep roots of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. People all over the world become impulsive, they follow beliefs, try to fit in with others.

Why?? Because they do not find an identity within themselves, and this makes them anxious, disturbed, even violent, and so they feel the need of justifying this by joining others that have no identity like them. So, what happens in this state of mind??

People follow ideas, opinions, philosophies, rules that others set for them. Could be parents telling them this or that. Could be religions introducing beliefs into their minds since young. Could be politics based purely on satisfying one group. Could be little groups of “friends” just “having fun”.

Why knowing yourself…??

Knowing yourself is understanding yourself. There are many benefits, but I will mention the most important ones, at least for me.

1- You realize and build great self-love, which takes you to focus entirely on creating better, healthier, more positive habits daily. This grows your confidence, you begin to appreciate more the time with yourself, and you increase your self-esteem in every aspect of your life.

2- Your understanding of others, of the world, grows massively and gives you so much insight and knowledge, and all this insight and knowledge takes away your frustration, misery, jealousy, violent and revengeful thoughts.

3- You become more wise in your decisions, you start growing a deep insight, some call it Third Eye, into better ways, better ideas, new strategies that help you see other paths as your self-awareness expands. And this expands as well your capacity to be truly happy and to make others around you happy as well.

The 2 forces

The positive and the negative. That’s what we are. One split into two, because we are here to learn to balance what we love with what we fear.

The 2 forces

We are not what we think.
We are not what we feel.
We are indeed what we do.
We are our chosen habits.

We are beyond thoughts,
For we create by action.
We are beyond impulses,
For we can see consequence.

A human being is conscious.
A human being must be aware.
We must not drown in opposites.
We must balance the 2 forces.

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.

The small things

Love unites

Everything that changes with time and evolution is external. The rest, the inner is about choices. Love can unite people all their lives, just as long as you choose love by focusing on the small details in regards to you, to your partner, to life.

If the mind is to deviate from the small things in life, then it will fall under chaos–it will fall into frustration, worry, and into the illusion of the changing external. (Become highly aware of this to avoid all kinds of problems.)

All mental health and connection

And then, when in chaos, anger appears, and mental distortions and all obsessions appear, and separation from your true self and from your loved one appear. That is why the heart of all mental health and connection lies not in what you see but in what you cannot.

Going up

That’s how you know…

When things are not going as expected in life is because we need the current experience. In order for things to get better your mind must reach a point of understanding even in the struggle. It is how we know, when things are not going as we want; because things are getting ready for the shift, energy is clearing out.

Life is like a rollercoaster. Up and down. Up and down. In order for knowledge and understanding to be absorbed the mind must let go from fear of the ride. The ride is not always going to stay down, but it is building momentum to go up. You, of course, must be ready to go up.

Going up…

Going up is a state of mind, first and foremost. The mind makes up your reality, which means your mind must embrace a new reality to shift your understanding and for things to change. Even if you inherit a million dollars, you can be depressed and hate your life. Because beyond all the loads of money you have now, your mindset has not shifted.

So, going up starts with the shift of your mindset. You want a better life, one where you feel loved and happy, confident and successful?? Then your mind must let go from the negative mentality, and from the self-pity, and from the complaining you do now. Again, going up is a powerful mental state you have to reach first.

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.

Vital to move on

Self-acceptance

It is vital to move on. Self-acceptance means you respect yourself enough to forgive all the mistakes, the guilt, the shame, the negativity you carry and feel. Could be your burden. Could be the fault of somebody else. It doesn’t really matter. In order to accept yourself and gain peace, you must let it go.

A clear mind

Our minds are always chattering, loud voices telling us this and that. That is what being human is all about, and that is the challenge we all face to follow the right voices, to be influenced by the right voices. Because in order to find peace finally and accept yourself you have to follow the right voices.

And following the right voices, or allowing the right voices to influence you, means to clear you mind of toxic voices from the outside–toxic friends, toxic family, toxic movies, toxic music, etc. It’s extremely important you bring clarity and positivity into your mind to have the energy and strength needed to accept yourself and let go of the past.

What it means…

What love means to me

A flower blossoming freely.
The sky above us blue and clear.
Birds singing in a meadow.
A mind liberated from anxiety.

Love is not a romantic thought in the mind.
Love is not a desire to possess or own.
Love is what is left when there are no words.
Love is what dwells only in the pure heart.

And of love I know because I live in joy.
And of joy I know because I'm in love.
Because it is what resides deeply in me.
Because it is what love means to me.
