The Way…

“If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.”

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

The key is in observing the pain, not running away from it.

We all struggle, we all carry our burdens; however, one must understand that they are there for a reason.

What is life without this understanding…??

Much more pain, struggle, unhappiness, frustration and anger.

I’ve had much pain growing up. I’ve suffered my own struggles, like I’m sure you’ve suffered yours. We are all still suffering in some aspect. Finances. Relationships. Illnesses. Psychological and emotional burdens. The past. The future. There is always some pain and tragedy in our lives, and quite often we bury these deeply within ourselves so we don’t show weaknesses. It is a subconscious choice to bury the pain and seek to escape it or ignore it through some other distraction or entertainment. Maybe through work. Perhaps through eating. Maybe through seeking relationships. Or through some kind of denial process. But this is really unhealthy. The key is to feel free, confident, powerful, by yourself, in yourself, to create a better life; but with all this pain it becomes impossible sometimes.

But have you ever asked yourself, seriously, why the pain, the hurt, the suffering happens…?? Why do we all go through so much?? What is the point?? Suffering comes out of our choices, even when we don’t know that they will bring suffering. But suffering is meant to teach you something, to awaken you into some aspect of life, to push you to become better. Of course, if we deny this, or if we remain angry and arrogant, then we won’t learn anything; because in order to actually learn from the suffering our minds must be free of any anxiety. If there is anxiety, anger and the rest, then we will pay attention to it while missing the lesson of that struggle or hurt.

I am talking about the choice we unconsciously make of attaching ourselves to our self-pity, to our mental drama, to our depression, to our past memories of pain, and to all those things that create a lot of overthinking in our minds. Overthinking makes the suffering worse. Overthinking does not help, because it brings more pointless questions and drama instead of helping us move on. And, in order to understand your life and your suffering, then you have to calm your mind, observe your own choice to attach your attention to mental drama. You must be aware of your own mind. Awareness is putting attention not on the event that happened, not on the memory; but it is putting attention on your own reactive feelings towards what happened to change them, and it is not choosing to suffer those events. Because in order to move on and be happy creating a better life, then you must leave attachment to the images and words of suffering in your mind. To be happy, you have to free your mind of struggle and pain. You must choose this all the time.

Isolated and Angry.

 

74289634_800914427008588_6094067055491809280_n

 

Light and Darkness are the same, they make each other one whole–one couldn’t exist without the other.  Pain and joy are the same, just different degrees in this life of experiences.

The mind separates pain and joy, suffering and bliss; and when this happens the mind creates a duality, and you become anxious and frustrated because you compare the experiences.  Love one and hate the other.

People demonize pain, they crucify it, and always escape it like the plague; however, while doing this you are demonizing and crucifying yourself, because you are the duality you created.

Healing is facing whatever experience, whatever sensation or feeling you might be having.  Trying to escape only opens the wound and makes it vaster, stronger, more pungent; thus you become more desperate, traumatized, isolated and angry.

The Dance of Love.

 

Just jump.  Don’t think…

 

An angel is someone who even before loss and despair keeps the heart open, someone who faces life with a smile and with a positive attitude.

The whole world can come down in pieces, all can be lost; but, still, the hurt and the trauma, the demons and the abyss, is just the mere shadow of fear.

 

To worship all that you are

An angel knocks at my heart’s door,
Even her knocking humbles me,
Even my pain dissipates as I get close to you.
The passion feels sweet as sugar,
The tender beauty begins my tears,
You hug me and the anger is gone,
You kiss me and I fly with wings of love.
“Why is it that I can fly now…??” I ask you.
“My kiss has melted all your weights,
All your anger has transformed,” you say.
So now I am the angel because I love you,
And because I transformed all my pain;
Thus I fly to a secret sky and I carry you.
Yes, I carry you in my lips as I’m drunk,
And I never been more drunk before.
And to know this, to have you in me,
To taste you, to worship all that you are,
Without ignoring your humbling beauty,
Is to fly with no pain, for you are my angel.

And remember:  When truly loving, just give, and dance with the feeling.  Don’t try to analyze the affections of another towards you.   Don’t let your mind interfere and ruin it.  Just dance with it

It shines…

 

9a44637f06df91f26b431a15f1755dde

 

When someone goes through psychological and emotional suffering is a cleanse, is the way life brings change by transmutation, even if the mind cannot see it right away.

All the shame, the disappointment, the frustration, have its purpose; and all in existence blooms at its right time, all it takes is for the mind to allow itself to acknowledge it through patience and a positive consistency.

 

Your beauty shines in my tears

When I look away from you,
Far away from a place of love,
I lose the beauty that you can be;
For you are the muse of the artist in me,
And the answers to my very sorrows.
And I know you from long before,
You are my shadow and you follow me.
Why is it that you cling to me as I you…??
Oh, you are a part of me, just tell me?!
We are friends and enemies in love,
People see us in the street,
They sneer at us and my mind rebels;
And so we dance our concealed love song,
And your beauty shines in my tears,
Because it cleanses my soul, my ills.
So, I must welcome you into my arms,
Naked as you are, under the moon,
And under the stars lighting my path.

I’ve lost my best friend…

Yes, it is indeed difficult to lose someone really special, someone you loved dearly; but life gives us meaning by change, by an old death and new birth, and so the cycle under time goes on and on throughout our lives. And exactly this should never be forgotten, that life is change; if you adapt to change, you may find strength to go on and become better in your life…

36446284_489681971465170_5544635550289362944_n

 

“I’ve lost my best friend…”

Ever lost someone, but someone extremely special to you, someone you carry in your very DNA, someone who made you into who you are today, someone who you feel in your very bones, in your very flesh, and someone who somehow in your each laughter and tear lights your way in this life…??

We would build trenches and castles in the sand,
We would play video games and he’d let me win;
Life was easy, without tears, perfect around him,
He was God to me, no Devils, no demons, no sin…
I wish I knew why, but I grew up and demons came.
O how I wish I would understand why I went insane!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
I always loved him but I did not show it till the end!
If I could go back in time I’d tell you what I should,
Yes, I would not cause you any pain and be good.

Once he called me in the room and sat me down,
He smiled warmly, but very proudly I looked away;
He tried to talk sense into me, guide me with love,
But I remained distant, like I knew the better way…
Jumping from school to school, I brought him pain.
O how I wish I would understand why I went insane!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
He was my dad, my very all, my partner till the end!
He loved his family and brought us to new shores,
In the new territory he taught me how to open doors.

In his last moments at the hospital I didn’t say much,
He went somewhere and never came back to me.
So cherish your loved ones, love all their characters,
For after death they in your memories you will see…
Yes, I learned from my father all a real man should.
O how great he was even though I was not so good!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
I always loved him but I did not show it till the end!
Wherever you are I hope you see the man I am now.
As you guide me forth I promise to make you proud.

dadlost
Losing a loved one is always a tragedy, a moment of sadness no one can avoid; however, this is the beauty of life, all this change and pain is what makes us or destroys us–it is the challenges that which is the very heart of life.  We are meant to live these challenges, not to turn away from them or denied them but to feel them, cherish them, learn from them, and rise from the ashes that live in you.  That’s the secret:  Rising from the ashes, not staying buried in them.

Thus Awaken…

awakening

Do you realize why pain, confusion, temptation, anxiety, and all suffering exist in your life…??  Can you understand that what truly gives rich value to life is that same exact pain and suffering which you feel…??

As a human being one may only experience happiness, joy, love, and all harmony if one has struggled with their opposites first, learned from their opposites with an open mind.  Awakening only comes after you have seen this and experienced it yourself, because physical existence carries both opposites and these both make physical life.  A mother’s deep love and unique bond to his son or daughter wouldn’t be as strong as it is if in childbirth the pain was not extremely unpleasant and even life-threatening; therefore, a part of her has been ripped out, she feels it, thus she remains deeply connected to her kid her whole life, even in great distance…  And life wouldn’t be appreciated without loss or death.  As you suffer the great loss of a loved one, there is a lesson being imparted to you in the quiet corners of your mind; therefore, after you grieve or mourn you must surrender to this quiet corner in your mind where the voice of suffering may turn into the voice of wisdom.
e695630353f82527c749c3928eba538f--deep-thoughts-meditation

One of the passages in the Bible says that it is easier for the poor to enter the ‘house of God’ (‘awakening into wisdom’) than for the rich.  This means that the poor, due to lack of all societal and financial means, may go through much more pain than the rich, thus his mind might turn all his suffering into wisdom/into an awakening.  So whatever you go through, remind yourself that all suffering, all failures, all misfortunes, all diseases have a purpose; and you mustn’t doubt this, because such doubt brings you more confusion and suffering.  You have to see through your pain and turn it into a strength, wisdom, experience which can shape you into a better, more prepared person; for this is the purpose of all your suffering, and by embracing it, by overcoming it, you grab the scepter of power.
Buddha.  Jesus.  Muhammad.  Lao Tzu.  Osho.  This is how the sage becomes the sage.  No sage or wise man is born a sage or wise man.  He becomes awakened by learning from his own pain; but he must be prepared to see through his pain instead of just complain and moan about it.

As I hold her…

quote-we-continue-to-love-in-spite-of-the-pain-tears-heartbreak-perhaps-the-pain-makes-us-jeanette-121-37-75
As I hold her…
And I believe love is this incredible but truly mysterious thing beyond desire and passion, hidden in the simplicity of a deep gaze, lived by the purest and most honest individual, and created by all beings in the Universe.  And I saw that creation in front of me, O I felt it like miraculous light into my very conscience, and as this one brought me to magic healing, to a sort of wholeness I had never experienced before.  She was falling in love as I was, and perhaps our losses had unite us; but, however, I really saw us not “falling in love” but rising in love, because in my days, and during my nights, all I knew was the experience of this divine and powerful rising within me, just like the Sun in the skies rises life with its glorious energy of love and warmth each morning and night on earth.

As I hold her…

I know pain was just part of love, a higher love ever rising, higher and higher.  Because, can you really rise in love without knowing pain as a step up…??  Our loss had vanished, the attachment had been the vanity which had kept us in constant pain, because we had been wretches who never had known love.  But the beauty on her face was the beauty of her divinity which had been clouded and lost under weights of tremendous sorrow.  But the maturity and positivity in me had been bashed and squashed under all my self-pity and tears.  We had been denied warmth and succor when we had needed it the most, they had stepped on our hearts, lost souls we were.  But the loss of love we had in our lives had forged our paths stronger, and so two souls met as it had been written in the stars above.

As I hold her…

I understand now that our souls were One even before our bodies had met, and we find ourselves now transforming great pain into everlasting joy; for we are the children of ourselves, and we are always together playing freely in the fields of the Universe.  Pain is but a door into that great essence of the magical and mysterious creature of love, sitting on a throne of gold and waiting for us mortals to wake up from our great illusions!  Can you not see that?!  Yes, she believes in me and I believe in her now, there is no pride or insecurity, because the eternal moment is what bonds us with the powerful adhesive of love.  But a deeper and mightier love which is not tied to our silly aging and shifty thinking, nor to our mere desires and ugly accusations.  And who dares speak ill about this profound love which transcends this mundane body-mind…??  As I hold her in my arms there is nothing in my heart and mind but her soul and mine born stronger together out of the pain, out of the struggle we have each of us endured…

One with it.

“We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.” ~ Helen Keller; American author, political activist, and lecturer.


“You learn more from losing than winning, more from pain than joy.” You learn how to keep going.” ~ Morgan Wootten; American former high school basketball coach.



It is extremely important to develop ourselves and vital for true happiness in life to self-reflect and know our deepest selves, our darkness as well as our light, our pain as well as our joy.

26731505_411642822602419_3637707449312016357_n

Sadly, most people today do not understand that in order to know why something happens in life, you must embrace it, become well acquainted with it, study it closely; and, opposite to this, you must never escape and try to ignore it, specially when it comes to emotional and psychological issues.

The human being suffers pain, and, no matter your unique situation in life or who you are, you must learn to adjust to this; because pain is meant for your mind to analyze it and comprehend it in order to not allow it to destroy you and your dreams.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  Do not run away from pain through activities, relationships, jobs, religion, travels, and the rest; but stay with pain and learn the lesson in them.  Do not avoid pain and what makes you uncomfortable, but realize that it is a blessing in disguise so you can grow.

Personally, I welcome challenges and pain, because If my father and brother hadn’t died, if my mother hadn’t nearly been killed by my once stepfather, if I hadn’t gone through so many challenges in my life, I wouldn’t have awakened to many wonderful things I see so clearly now, and, of course, I wouldn’t be sharing this with you and trying to help you in your own life.

5892e026ac7f5a1c5267e1d65a8906a5
So, you see, life turns to be wonderful and miraculous once you study and analyze those moments that have caused you so much pain and still anguish.  I hope you can see this, too.

Choosing right.

“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”  ~ Hans Selye; pioneering Hungarian-Canadian endocrinologist.


“To complain is always nonacceptance of what is.  It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge.  When you complain, you make yourself into a victim.  When you speak out, you are in your power.  So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it.  All else is madness.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle.



What good is it really to always complain to yourself and to others, and have negative self-talks about your own life…??  Is your life really that bad and dark that you do not have any positives and so you must always focus on the negatives…??  Perhaps you shouldn’t always analyze and think things to death, but accept things the way they are and feel more while moving on.

CMupGu7UYAAOYp_

People tend to live and subconsciously choose in their minds to experience the negative more than the positive, and this comes about because the human mind, which is the ego, is more attracted to chaos and entertainment, something to analyze and dissect; however, positive and all things of the heart are not that attractive to the ego, because these things of the heart are purer things and experiences to feel and not analyze to death.
Analyzing and formulating opinions, over and over again, quite often non-stop overthinking, is the realm of our mortal mind, the purpose of the ego; but one cannot wisely trust this process of over-analyzing because the deeper things in life, the ones which matter more mostly, are the more emotional things, the more direct in regards to life itself, thus just flow and acceptance.  Flow and acceptance means that they cannot be questioned over and over again, because if they are then the process of questioning will make the mind focus on the pain or failed attempts, and so the mind will suffer, soon poisoning the whole body and leading to illness and all decay.

When challenges arise and your mind feels confused and bent on the negative, you must remember that in focusing on the wounds you may have or on the negative, then your whole experience, your whole world, is going to be negative and confusing; but, however, you will find strength and wisdom if you choose in your mind to see the positive, the things you can feel with your pure heart, without the analysis and stubbornness from thought, the things from the challenge that you can learn from.

Furthermore then, where you allow your focus to be is where your experience will be; so, the human mind is that powerful, and it will create your own experience based upon the attention you direct in life.

As Buddha said, “Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.”  So, pain is in the challenges and obstacles to make us grow and learn wisdom, but suffering that pain is a choice the human mind makes by allowing your attention here or there.
23755351_389593411474027_2913136385995005241_n

So, choose wisely.
