Chasing…

 

Chasing, becoming anxious about achieving, obsessing, becoming attached and ambitious for something, only ruins your mental peace and your clarity in life.   The way is the inward way.   In life you get everything by detaching yourself from what you desire.

Take for example happiness:  If you chase happiness through money, through sexual and emotional relationships, through fame, through traveling, through any activity, then happiness is not discovered in you, it runs away from your experience.

  Sure, you have moments of pleasure and joy, of excitement and pride; but those die soon, because real happiness is already in you and not in your activities.  Your activities give you wonderful experiences, but these activities pass away in time.  Happiness never dies, because it is constant. 

Or love, for example:  Love is not a product of your relationships with another, sexual affairs, marriage, kids, etc.  Love cannot be chase and grabbed by you, you cannot make it happen by the struggle and demand of your mind.  Love is in you, but you cannot experience it because your mind is always busy chasing something out there.

Greed in chasing after something is what you must kill, so you can become a magnet and attract.  You attract what you become.  The problem is allowing your mind to get envious and desire what others have.  Time is an illusion and you shouldn’t be concerned with it.  Do not run after what you want desperately, and do not obsess about the time in life either; for this makes you a repellent for all things of value to you.

Into the abyss.

Hell, or the Avernus, has three gates: Lust, Anger, and Greed. 

-Lust takes us to lose consciousness and fall deep into animal character away from all divinity and illumination–godly states which are the very essence of Love. 
-Anger spawns all kinds of agitation in the mind, it clouds judgement, and brings all diseases into our system by lowering the vibrations of our being. 
-But greed is the very nature of what we may call evil.  Greed fills the mind and it makes it want more and more–i.,e., more and better food, more sex, more money, more things, even more knowledge.

Society is built around greed, it cannot survive without it; this works subconsciously so it plants the seeds in the psyche of the ignorant masses, thus nobody thinks they are being greedy.  Being greedy is a sin unto yourself, to your better evolution as a human and spiritual being.  But nobody becomes truly aware of their greediness, do they…??  Do you…??  It is easy to notice the greediness of the world instead of your own, isn’t it…??  The reason why the mind of the human creature must be self-aware at all times, no exceptions.

Pursuing pleasures mindlessly and obsessively is greed, which most of the time will act subconsciously in you; and the only cure for this is a constant self-awareness.  Greed is everywhere you look, even dressed in religious and saintly clothing.  Fear is pursuing these pleasures, and when fear exists in the mind/when the pursuit of pleasure exists in the mind then all love for God and for your true self is gone.

Slave to existence.

Desire, and the roots of desire, is a big topic for all of us, even for those who do not consciously see it as a big topic; because desire is everything you are as a human being, it is how you can accomplish things, it is how you live day by day:  You desire to keep the passion alive in your relationship.  You desire to become a better person.  You desire to have more knowledge.  You desire to better your finances.  You desire to love yourself more.  And the substance of desire moves us forward from one minute to the next, acting consciously and subconsciously all throughout our lives.

Desire then, being the root of our day by day interactions, thoughts, feelings, fuel for doing everything, is also our downfall or destruction when it becomes too much desire/obsession:  You obsess over your financial situation.  You obsess over sex.  You obsess over knowledge.  You obsess over your appearance and your intelligence.  All this is desire uncontrolled, desire ruling you instead of you ruling it.  So, desire, the magic fuel of our very humanness, the heart of good deeds and of evil deeds as well, can become an obsession if unguarded, if there is no self-awareness.  It can enslave you with and without your knowledge, can it not…??

And why would you say that is…??  Because desire is the very root of existence.  In the story of Adam and Eve, Adam disobeys God and tempted by Eve eats of the forbidden fruit; so because of desire Adam and Eve disobeyed God – an unbalanced desire brought this.  Desire is then good, it is the fuel behind great things; however, it is desire unguarded that which destroys man, because desire unguarded brings great anxiety, uncontrolled passion, rebellious obsession, and all agitation to the mind.

The Hell of Your Passions.

36599553_492361057863928_1620558617537150976_n
Seeing through your own desires and passions (all products of your ego) is a challenge we all must face and overcome in order to see truth as it is.  In order to know true, everlasting love you must see beyond the burning desire, passion, and lust you feel for someone.  In order to know great health you must see beyond your selfish and capricious cravings for popular foods.  In order to really know God you must empty your mind from beliefs and literature and go beyond the popular mind of society.   In order to know freedom you must leave beliefs, traditions, and lifestyles taught to you by society–including family, religion and all unproven literature.
We may say all this is the inferno of the passions of the unawakened man, because this and more are blinding forms of self-destruction, self-imposed, which bring anxiety, stress, anger, fear, and confusion to mankind.  All this creates attachment in the weak mind–attachment to beliefs, ideas, lifestyles, views on life.  And whenever this clashes or is opposed by others, there is hell–there is contention, war, hatred, prejudice, jealousy, and the rest.  Can you see this for yourself…??  Can you see how the human mind is weakened by all this man-made knowledge and selfishness of the ego…??
60e03-hhh

To overcome all this is to rise from the inferno of your own passions, it is to stop thought and its ruling on your life, so you may be guided by the truth which lies beyond your desires and selfish passions.  And this is the whole purpose of human existence, this is why you have been endowed with self-awareness over other animals; so you may see these weaknesses in yourself, empty your mind and go beyond it, find your true self and rise over the inferno of your human desires and passions. 

All this so you can see through life and society, and so create a newer, more blissful life for yourself; thus, a life with no struggle, a life where you see the tricks of your own mind, a life where fear is no more, a life where you have much more intuition and empathy, a life where you are truly the god or goddess you seek, and a life where you are true love and so you bring exactly that into all your relationships
263594_468561843182959_1149598379_n
Life is full of challenges and situations which frustrate you and anger you so you learn to rise over the hell of your own ignorance, over your own passions and desires thus you can know love, God, harmony, freedom, and true happiness.

The man of no lack.

“Happiness is being content with what you have, living in freedom and liberty, having a good family life and good friends.”  ~ Divyanka Tripathi; Indian actress.

The obsession for seeking is the subconscious sickness that holds mankind captive, the constant desire for more things and better conditions of living, the inexhaustible toil for more relationships and more intimate experiences; and this is precisely what expresses the emptiness people feels, the depth of their ignorance while leaning on the illusions/the lies they tell to themselves daily–i.e., “I need to be finally happy and loved and so find love in another,” “I don’t eat healthy but I complain about my health and I envy others who are healthier than me,” “I deserve a better job even though I do nothing to better myself and my opportunities,” etc.

34445e690d00ad739960c9d54b26a6b9
The whole issue here is not wanting more but the obsession of wanting more, such an obsession which is born out of a very ignorant ego which does not live in the present, but it lives comparing with others, it lives dreaming in a future without actually doing anything to create better actions in the present.
All this leads to lack of acceptance of what is, as people do not enjoy the present and what they have but always want more and more, and even envy others and compare themselves to them; and subconsciously this creates their own personas, where they cannot stand to be with themselves and less to find true happiness in the moment and in the things and living conditions they have.

But he who awakens and lives in the actual moment can find daily joy to better his own experience, because the mind is the one wanting always more and obsessing, because the mind lives in the past and the future; so, when you live in the present and accept the present, and things as they are in the present, then you step away from your mind, from your ego, and live and experience from and in your heart.

“He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.” ~ Socrates.

Rolling out of the mud…

“You have to lift your head up out of the mud and just do it.”  ~ Teri Garr; American actress of stage, television and film, singer, comedian, dancer, and voice artist.

“My father taught me not to overthink things, that nothing will ever be perfect, so just keep moving and do your best.” ~ Scott Eastwood; American actor and model.



The process of thinking, of analyzing things, planning, envisioning, experiencing first in the mind’s eye, is the process of self-discipline and of good strategy; however, too often the human mind tends to dwell on this, overthink, cripple itself, too much thinking and experiencing in the mind bring fear most of the time.

138e8e35686eba9d57615b34400d1d16.jpg
You must realize that the mind is limited and ego-centered, and so it can only aid you in things you know from experience; but things you haven’t experienced, new ventures and decisions, are always going to be targets to a little confusion and fear to the mind because change is most of the time unique and so it calls for bravery.

New horizons, new light can be scary sometimes if you are attached to the old.

 

The center of your attitude must then be one of serenity and poise, and you must be curious and brave, believe in yourself and do new things, challenge yourself.

Overthinking or focusing on every little detail of a new venture might leave you fearful and put down, discouraged and filled with worries; therefore, you seek inwardly for that strength and wisdom to understand and realize that to create your path, to be unique and yourself you must do, no thoughts, no overthinking, just do and be in each step you take, take it all in and enjoy the moment.


Don’t lose yourself in choices and too much thinking, the world has many choices and it always says you have time; but you must know better, warriors are forged in the choices they make out of bravery, now, not tomorrow, without delay.

26168455_405238079909560_5998968194497941414_n

Make your choice then and stop living in your mind.

Balance and harmony.

“Do not give in too much to feelings. An overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; German writer and statesman.


“It is usually the imagination that is wounded first, rather than the heart; it being much more sensitive.” ~ Henry David Thoreau; American essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, and historian.



The understanding of the activities or movements of the ego is vital to develop wisdom and lead a healthy and happy life, because the mind which is rogue and uncontrolled is
the mind which will bring much more suffering and stress to the life of the individual.  This unruly mind leads to obsession with what happened, with what affected us in the past, which leads to blindness of what is really happening in the present; thus we become reactive and wounded by whatever it is said in the present, just because our ego-minds are still fixated with past memories and still focusing upon the hurtful experience.

It is like walking around with your finger deep in your wound, as you walk it hurts no matter what you do or what anybody says or does; you cannot heal until you leave the past and get your finger out of the wound.

Being sensitive is one thing, but being over-sensitive is another.  Like everything in life, you must find a balance, and so you must not obsess over your own wounds; because if you stay in what happened, if you allow your ego to obsess, you cannot get the strength to heal and move on, you will be hurting yourself even more and distancing others as well.  In this obsession your mind gets warped into illusion, any words and messages from the world will appear hurtful to you due to your finger still in the wound of the past, and you will miss the joy of living in the moment where you find happiness and the reality of life.

25552301_403259646774070_7939147921444515351_n

Remind yourself daily to find a balance, and to remove your finger from past wounds in order to strengthen yourself, heal, deeply connect to people around you, and so lead your life forward.
