Keep positive. Keep calm. Seek your growth by cultivating a mind that is not anxious. If the mind is anxious, then you won’t enjoy life. If the mind is agitated, then you will not be able to go deep into life and find solutions to your unrest.
The nature of our minds is to always run, to always direct one way or the other; but in this very running we distortion clarity. And we need clarity to find solutions and see reality as it is. So it is rational and illuminating to remain self-aware of our own minds all the time, right…?? What do you think??
The lack of deep and intimate relationship with your own nature is what makes you want to seek out there–seek philosophies, seek religion, seek God, seek validation from people, seek love, seek happiness, etc.
To know your nature is to be content, without seeking anything, and truly knowing that you already have everything you need. Loss of intimacy with life results in trying to find answers, meanings, purpose for God, for your existence, for your emptiness.
Intimacy is to know yourself in deep, it is to go beyond the petty desires and conflicts of your mind. Your mind is always seeking, attaching itself to ways of life, religions, and to human creatures close to you.
Leave your mind, because your mind does not know intimacy in life; and you must become intimate to truly love and be happy without addictions and dependencies to your outside.
What governs Nature…?? Everything and anything in existence works under higher principles or Universal Laws, and all that which happens does so for a reason. NOTHING is random:
If you are annoyed by your current life situation, if you fall into depression, if you survive an accident, if you find joy in a relationship, if you have inherited a fatal disease, if you lose someone you love, if the people in a nation or community suffer, if the people in a nation or community prosper, etc.–all this has meaning, but you can see the meaning ONLY if you have “Awakening.”
Why…?? Because Awakening is a liberation of consciousness from the stubborn intellectual mind/ego, such intellectual mind/ego which gets quickly annoyed by situations it does not like; so, what does it do then??, it closes itself to reality and out of suffering it creates stubbornly its own false reality.
A fake reality where consciousness remains asleep or trapped, so the ego creates a escape from what happened–specially when it comes to painful situations or happenings. So The Laws of Nature, or of God, do not work for the limited understanding of the ego; only an expanded mind with a free consciousness can understand painful situations and find the meaning in them.
Knowledge of The Laws of Nature require that you step away from your intellect and stop your ego from making you feel like a victim; and ONLY then consciousness can be free, and ONLY then you can breathe and welcome challenges and painful situations in your life.
Thus, everything that goes on in your life must be taken with peace of mind and not with condemnation or in anger; for the one entity that remains always blind to The Laws of Nature is your ego, and the suffering and the hatred for any situation you experience comes from your ego–i.e., ego which enslaves the greater understanding of your trapped consciousness.
The Sacred Feminine is The Fire inside man, The Earthly Mother’s Fire, The Cosmic Fire, The Emotional Body’s Fire, The Buddhic or Intuitional Body’s Fire, The Unquenching Fire as revealed in The Bible, The Burning Bush which Moses saw in The Bible, etc. etc. Whoever understands the feminine, feels the feminine, understands and feels one with Nature itself.
I think is very important to understand women, and when I say women I refer to the emotional body so intense in the woman form; and it is not because I am trying to promote a “Casanova lover” or some kind of guide to better relationships, but it is because understanding the emotional body in women lead us, as men, to understand the emotional body/the feminine body in ourselves. Of course, the world of ignorant men won’t understand what I mean, because most men know only their intellect, their desires and pride, and allow themselves to be guided by it–i.e., intellectual pursuits in romance and in all aspects is all for them, their whole world is the intellect as they love with it, as they work with it, as they design their lives with it.
The feminine force is not to be analyzed so closely as one scientist analyzes through a microscope, because if you analyze it thus then you miss the point of actually KNOWING it; for the feminine works by intuition, by emotion, by intense feeling, and you cannot dissect this like you dissect a mathematics problem or a financial one. When a woman feels is not the same as when a man feels, because the woman or feminine force is much more intense and the man, even the man in love, is much more intellectual. Have you ever observed this carefully…?? You gain much understanding and depth by pure observation of this wonderful human phenomenon.
Intuition is the realm of the pure feminine, untainted by egotism and not influenced by anything; therefore, we may say this sixth sense is divine, and this is why Osho said very wisely, “Women ARE NOT to be understood; women are to be loved.” And through the feminine then one is closer to God, because women/the pure feminine represent the inner force of The Cosmic Mother in its totality–whose love and sense of KNOWING is as intense as The Sun itself. The soul of man is a woman/feminine. The soul of the Earth is a woman/feminine. Whoever understands the feminine, feels the feminine, understands and feels one with Nature itself.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” ~ Revelation 22: 16.
Lucifer was not the most exalted of the angels, but rather Prince of those lower three ranks of angels who were responsible for the cosmos. He was properly the “Prince of This World,” commissioned to work out his good in original Creation, particularly of man in “the gaiety of love.” When he sinned, he rejected the position to which he was assigned. Lucifer never performed the beneficent ministry for which he was destined.
Lucifer is the son of the morning, the morning star, the bearer of light, the facilitator and the schemer, the one which fell from the grace of God and rebelled against the true Nature of man. Lucifer represents the individual intellect and will which rebels against the domination of Nature and attempts to maintain itself contrary to natural impulse. Lucifer, in the form of Venus (the representation of beauty itself), is the morning star spoken of in Revelation, which is to be given to those who overcome the world.
In short, Lucifer is the ego who blinds us from truth, who designs poor and imperfect love, who pretends to know peace by war, and the one who speaks to us through the obsessive desires and uncontrolled passions introduced in us by the physical senses–i.e., the ego of man lost in the false beauty and allure of the world of form, of that which is deceiving to man’s true nature,
Many people mistakenly think that Lucifer is Satan and vice versa, but the facts are that is simply not true. This misinformation, conspiracies and lies have been propagated to the people through many books and movies that most people equate Lucifer with Satan or evil. But in fact Lucifer represents the dormant illumination, the fallen angel hidden in our DNA, the possibility for ascension again–he once fell from the grace of God, but through true awakening he may ascend again.
So we may say Lucifer is our chance to discover a truer love, a more profound intelligence, a more divine understanding of the nature of the whole of Creation again.
Rap-Rap!– I cannot help but wonder what lies beyond what my physical eyes can see, what is there sleeping among cosmic dreams and stardust, what is that which immerses man in ancient mysteries and dead civilizations. As I sit and ponder about life and my origins, the human faces seem so dim and the emotions so intense in my rushing mind, the alien worlds appear so distant yet so close to me; and I can really see entire galaxies in a raindrop, I can feel the calm and affection taking me over as I observe through my windowpane. The shiny droplets emanate life, as I feel the incredible energy of the first unicellular organism appearing in the heart of an ancient water corpuscle, the energy of the baby being born and of the old man dying, and the energy of millions upon millions of stars incurring a beautiful beginning and reaching a terrible end. The mysteries of life fill my mind thus like blood fills the many miraculous passages of my veins and arteries. What does the water in a raindrop carry then if not life and all its mysteries…??
Rap-Rap!– O how many fools are there in this world of ours that confuse their minds with trivialities and nonsense?! They seek to know and understand all the mysteries of life by empty knowledge and pleasure pursuits of their society. They even search for answers to their problems from gods up in the sky and dead men. They forget about the nature of the raindrop! For it knows. Nature knows because it carries all of time and space contained inside a so-called “insignificant” water droplet, such which travels from the vapors of the highest cloud down to my very windowpane with its Rap-Rap! sound. This divine sound is the very harmony of the universe to my heavy-laden ears, and the illuminating peace of my soul connecting to it, freeing my mind from the overwhelming chaos of society and its burdens.
Rap-Rap!– The cloudy skies are in deep meditation and their soundless consciousness links to mine, it speaks to my heart in no-mind and vanishes all my nagging questions, it dispels my impatient intellect and brings the understanding of meditation upon me. Yes, and I come back to myself! To the one true me I had forgotten and buried under stress and thought-forms of joy and also of misery. I connect with the cosmos as I observe this one raindrop sliding down my windowpane. And I wonder what is it most people think about when they observe what I observe–if they ever do that is… Do the Sun and the Moon ever speak about us and our impatience…?? Do they ever have doubts or become confused about their own origins and immerse themselves into questioning life…?? Or is it the very demon in man who thinks he is separated from nature and believes he is lost and alone and thus questions existence…?? Perhaps the relief from all questioning lies inside nature, indeed inside the simplicity of a raindrop.
Have you ever wondered what the Egyptian sex scenes painted in the ancient pyramids and temples mean…?? Have you paid really close attention to the symbolic stories of The Bible like the story of Moses or Jesus’s Crucifixion…?? Can you see the symbols hidden in the way nature behaves all around us…?? What about in the very nature of man, the destruction, how it unfolds and how humankind evolves, how it all turns the pages of time–can you see…??
It is all Infinite Intelligence, divinity, hidden symbols and messages in each tragedy or joy, but specially in tragedy; however, it cannot be understood and seen clearly by the egoistical mind, by the mind which is not innocent and creative and emptied of the ways of man and his “rational” knowledge. The ways of nature are not the ways of man. The ways of Infinite Intelligence or God are not the ways of man or mammon. “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” ~ Matthew 6:24.
The moment you fall into depression pay attention; there is a message hidden you must make conscious in you mind. Whenever you become confused about love or any direction you must take in any aspect of life; there is a symbol you must hold consciously to be guided. As you feel empty inside, perhaps lustful, greedy, angered, betrayed, alone, meditate on why this is so, discover life’s hidden messages. The worst mistake any man or woman can make, and many do make it everyday and thus feel lost, is to follow explosive emotions and intellectual outbursts; for this is like the child who throws a tantrum and allows himself to be overwhelmed by his own desperation.
But study life, be life, allow it to enter you and be One with you; for symbols and messages are everywhere, and if you stop yourself, your rushing mind, if you empty yourself from the ignorant and foolish ways of the everyday man, you can see the mysteries and hidden messages with your inner eye… The riches of life are represented in symbols and hidden in the ways of The Infinite; He who has eyes to see then, must see…
“Signs and symbols rule the world, not words nor laws.” ~ Confucius.
Nothing obscures and destroys the truly blissful life more than to remain in perpetual fear of the unknown–“What is going to happen…??” – “What should I do…??” – “How should I live life before my last breath…??” – “What is waiting for me after I die…??” All this nonsense, unbeknownst to many, cripples the mind and depletes our full energy for a more blissful life; for each moment is a blessing, and quite often we live in our heads and see only darkness instead of looking around us and seeing the beauty of life in a better light…
“Why do you fear the unknown…??,” the spirit said, “Seek poisons, praise material illusion, hate death…??” There was silence, the man felt ill, he felt dread, “Who is there?! I feel upon my ear your breath! O I am but a poor wretch of man in this darkness.” The spirit left from his hands, brushed past his face; The spirit was gentle, kind to the man, harmless, “Why fear death, yet hold my body with such grace…?? The human mind fears the very shadows it creates, For it allows not the reality of life to flourish in man. Life is all there is, so live, a continuous bliss awaits!” The old man began with some fear, he almost ran From the voice; but soon his conscience was lit, “I have wasted my life on silly trinkets and vanity. For I see now that my eyes were before very unfit. I see you live still, I see now with the greatest sanity That which feeds ignorance and strengthens fear.” The dark skies opened right there, the man then saw The moonlight upon himself and the spirit very clear; Nature called and its essence parted without flaw…
Is the content of your mind always your choice…?? If you are not self-aware, can the content of your mind drive you to sheer insanity…??
God and The Devil exist, blissful Heaven and scorching Hell are at your doors, just waiting to possess you, ever stalking you without sleep; furthermore, they are designed by the powers of your mind, because your mind, whether you like it or not, consciously or subconsciously, is always absorbing data from your environment. Your conscious state, your dream state, your memory state, your instinctual state, your intuitive state; these are all influenced by your environment, not only by what you choose to read or watch.
You are walking through a field with death bodies, horrors of war, blood all over, children hurt and crying under a cloudy sky; however, you cannot choose to block this out, you will experience sadness, anger, desperation in your mind, it will possess you, no matter your Enlightenment. You are human, and this is very human; this terrible experience surfaces the Devil in you, your darkness, your misery as a human… You are walking in a beautiful and vast ground, smelling the blooming flowers and fragrant grasses under the bluest and most magical sky; so, your mind will absorb this, you will leave your stress for a moment. This is human and godly, and it reaches out for your divinity within, God and its bliss.
The point is that people tend to battle how they feel and what appears in their minds all the time, they deny either God or The Devil, thoughts of sadness or joy, bad or good thoughts. Many times you cannot choose your environment, and your mind is already by nature made to absorb all your surroundings; but do not fight what enters your mind, this is pointless, it is trying to become, it is poison to yourself. Instead allow your thoughts and feelings to flow without your resistance, choose what to follow, what to project and assimilate; but know and understand that your mind’s content is most of the time beyond your choosing, for you do not know what is going to happen around you all the time…
So, be self-aware of the thoughts you follow, because this is what you will become, and you want to be alert, aware, sane; but allow your mind to be natural and absorb your environment as it is, do not punish yourself over what you see and hear…
As I woke up this morning… thousands of warm slivers of sunshine filled my room, Bobby, my little dog barked in the background, I got up and felt taken by the early morning’s energy. Then, a particular thought came to mind: ‘Freedom.’ Freedom…??… I followed my morning routine, toothbrush and stretch, and I kept on hearing the little shrieking with which I had become so enamored by now. Bobby wanted to be let out, enjoy the day and expand his own curiosity, thus immerse himself in the wonderful micro-world of smells. I put his leash on and we started our routine walk, except this time we explored another part of the area. While strolling and courting the sunshine spectrum we also felt the soothing morning breeze upon us, charmingly refreshing, almost magical, and to really be there was a wonderful experience on its own. He was sniffing away as if possessed! “Who knows what sorts of little worlds he finds among the blades of green grass,” I thought while smiling.
As I woke up this morning… Then, the particular thought came to mind again, ‘Freedom.’ But this time I recognized it. Bobby wants freedom! You want freedom! I want freedom! We all want freedom! But not superficial, not the facade of freedom; true freedom, a deeper freedom which has really to do with divinity and not with the flesh. Although the ignorant mind thinks that it has to do with the flesh; but it does not, does it…?? Freedom from stress, freedom from concepts, freedom from this flesh, freedom from our everyday lives– This is true freedom! We all feel this nagging sensation deep inside of us each moment, then thought comes along and gives it a name–which could be ‘Violence,’ ‘Extra eating,’ ‘Sex,’ ‘Killing,’ ‘Bullying,’ ‘Warring,’ ‘Traveling,’ ‘Seek relationships,’ ad infinitum. The ego is thought, and thought invades the human experience each second of each day, it is relentless, we need it and yet it brings poisoned ways to translate freedom into what we want. It works subconsciously in the unawakened individual, it starts as a desire to do something, anything, than thought gives it a flavor, a name, an activity…
But it is all about freedom, all we do, all human experience we create in existence; because we all want to come back to Source really, come back to that state of godliness, that eternal essence, or however you call it. But the ego does not allow us to see that all we want is freedom; that is why to be awakened is to know freedom, to be whole and embrace it… Although, I have to say, we can become Enlightened, we can love purely, we can live truly free in our lands, self-sufficient; but we can never be 100% free unless no thought exists, no feeling drives us, and no flesh enslaves us. And what is this absolutely free state…??: Death. Or what we call death, anyway… Now, isn’t it interesting that people live unconsciously, seeking for freedom in all they do, but fearing what they call Death–i.e., fearing the same thing they seek, fearing freedom from all bondage…??… It is the unknown, isn’t it…??: Death… But it is absolute freedom from this mundane jail of pleasure and pain called human experience, and your conscience deeply, beyond your ego, knows this.
Perhaps if we all understand that all we want is freedom, we won’t allow our own egos to drive us into self-destruction, and we won’t destroy the human experience of others by some selfish expression of our own egos.
