Demon of Agency (Impressions).

What is reality…??  How does reality penetrate into the human psyche…??  Your mind is the content of the world fed by your physical senses–then how do you truly access reality…??  All the mind knows is impressions, and in fact there is nothing outside the mind but impressions; hence, there is no substance of true reality in the world, all you see, touch, hear, and experience are impressions.  Indeed your life–i.e., your relationships, your things, your joys, your miseries, etc.–is impressions.  For example: when you see a beautiful woman or man, what makes your pupils dilate, your heart beat faster, are impressions.  Anything started by a thought, by a feeling, is an impression–something which decays and has no reality of its own.

One may think that one is experiencing reality, and in fact that is why we have an ego–i.e., to experience the wonderful illusions of this world which bring joys and sufferings to the same human structure.  But what we truly experience is subtle winds or sensations originated by the presence of other individual minds in the universal creation; and these winds or sensations, by the marvelous design of our nervous system (our physical existence), get transformed into chemistry which creates familiar forms, attractive or non-attractive shapes, and the rest in order for our experience to offer choice.  And that is what human experience is, namely choice, or a set of choices (conscious or subconscious) which create change.

These demons of agency, these impressions, must be recognized once they penetrate the nervous system if one is to see reality and acquire the great understanding of God and of the whole cosmos.  Reality is not a substance you can acquire or obtain by solely experiencing your individual impressions of the world you see around you; for your impressions only give you thoughts and feelings, opinions and beliefs, concepts and points of view–i.e., all illusions of a human mind.  But reality is true gnosis, true inward search and realization; therefore, anything else is not reality, but your human mind/your own design of reality.

You are now entering Hell. WELCOME.

O, there was no going back for him!  He felt trapped in this conniving and ensnaring dimension of pain and angst, he could see the open door approaching to him quickly.  Hell called on to him!  Once, he had been rested, his soul had been free, and his heart enamored with life.  But that was once, before he had allowed the reality of others dictate his, and before he had permitted the words of madness of others introduce this same madness into him…
The door was here!
It read:  “YOU ARE NOW ENTERING HELL.  WELCOME.”
58f9ac91f0cf9cdff7bd6e076067a391
O, he entered his new reality full of fire and madness! 
It was like the heavens had vanished and had allowed a hell to fill his mental ether, to take hostage the now boiling content of each cell of his body.  It was the very vibration of the fire brooding within that which made everything so chaotic, so demonic, and yet the beauty had persisted but only to opaque and intensify his own lost soul.  And what is the soul taken by blinding wrath if not lost…??  Once enslaved by this rage reality becomes corrupted and emotions intensified to reach blinding heights for the human mind, does it not…??  And even in this state, where frustration and pride take over, he is not himself.  Who is he…??  Who are you…??  Who are you if not some creature which lies in powerlessness and dejection, the emptiness of your own humanity filled by this uncontrolled rage for a moment or two.  He has lost himself, love and understanding seem non-existent, foes perhaps; for now, heat and ashes consume his soul and befriend his mind with a passing and deceitful “bliss”–something which carries no life but its opposite, Death!  A death of reason and communion the divine understanding of the beautiful relationship in life. 

O, he entered his new reality full of fire and madness!
He walks in the inferno with explosive gluttony and obscured haughtiness, and as he walks, unbeknownst to his higher dominion of celestial reason, his mind has fallen into the gruesome abyss of despair and solitude.  And he trembles and despises himself as he is taken by this blasphemous extreme of the pole of his unexplored emotions, and he sees in the way the ones he wronged, which is himself and others he once treated with the highest gentleness and love contained within a beautiful creature of love and magic.  Now a creature of lowly birth and demonic possession…  How is it that anger fills us like the flames fill the house graced by family warmth and heartfelt art, robs our reason and understanding, burns everything into mere ash…??…  His soul cannot be free consumed thus; he knows it, O he knows it, yet the tremendous heat and the tyrannous pride are running him into oblivion of himself, just like the engine runs the car into the bottom of a cliff.   He has killed his friends and himself as he parades his stupidity. But he needs to see this. But he needs to be aware of this before the demons come for him…

“A physician is not angry at the intemperance of a mad patient, nor does he take it ill to be railed at by a man in fever. Just so should a wise man treat all mankind, as a physician does his patient, and look upon them only as sick and extravagant.” ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca; Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist and satirist.

Can you not see that it is Now…??

Once, a king and a lazy man named Haria were very good friends.  One morning, the king said, “Why don’t you do work to earn some money?”  Haria said, “No one gives me job.  My enemies told everyone that I never do any work on time.”  At this, the king said, “You can go into my treasury and collect as much wealth as you can, till sunset.”  Haria rushed home then to tell this to his wife.  She then said, “Christ is certainly smiling upon us, husband!  Go and get the gold coins and gems now!!”  But he replied, “I see you are extremely happy but I cannot go now.  Give me lunch first.”…

So, after lunch, he took a nap for an hour.  Then in the late afternoon, he picked some bags and went to the palace.  On the way, he felt hot so he sat under a tree to rest.  Then, two hours later, he got up to go but saw a man showing some magic tricks.  He stopped to watch for an hour again.  When he reached the palace it was already time for sunset.  The palace gates had been shut.  So Haria had lost a golden chance because he had not learned the value of time.

Life is eternal because it exist only in the Now.  Whatever is past is gone, is never to come back, and a mere memory in your mind.  The future will never be, because it is just another construct of your mind.  Life then is enjoyed now, because the only reality is the Now, and the only progress is in the Now.  A plan to do something later, an idea to see a possibility in your mind, an intention to act when things get better in a future–these are all schemes and games of your overthinking ego, of your conditioned mind, of your lazy psychology, and illusions which do not carry reality.

Acting in the Now, enjoying yourself in the Now, expanding your love and commitment in the Now–this is all creativity and reality, this is the real you behind all the fears and insecurities…  The freedom to be yourself and to move your life forward step by step is Now.  Hesitation in living is not based on love, is it…??…
1573efba67e8c1aa6b2902eb3a30d70d
Step by step, enjoying and doing things now without postponing you then create your better life; always moving forward, slowly but surely, with presence and focused on the moment you are living.

A Higher Revelation!

What is real…??  What is not real…??  Can you tell me…??  Can you tell yourself and be certain…??

e4fb258af62149f2e123d682ef7c11b9
For the human brain has been molded as clay, perfect clay, to create worlds, experiences, sensory perceptions, the greater and very human feelings of love and fear; furthermore, all this so each one of us can exist in this physical realm, interact with other brains and other forms, find wealth in knowledge and choose the life we desire to lead.  We see and experience the world as our brains tell us.  Our consciousness, our energy of eternal existence, runs through our bodies, fills and gives life to each one of our cells, it expresses our intentions and fuels our brain cells to give us divine access to the world we see, so we create our world and manifest our physicality for better or worse.

Alas, how weak and ignorant is to live your life in frustration and stress, in sadness and fear…?!  All is energy and nothing you see in the world works against you, because we are all energy; we are all the same team, there is no opposite in life, there is nothing to fear, but the ego/the same conditioned brain makes you believe there is an enemy you should fear.  But why should you keep any fears then if there is only realization that all is the same energy…??  No.  What must be changed in the brain is its own conditioning, because once you change it your mind rises, you do not “fall in love” anymore but you RISE in love, your consciousness breaks the chains of polluted conditioning and it allows your entire body to feel freer.

Remember that consciousness is life energy inside each cell of your body, so when your consciousness is allowed by the shift of your brain to break the chains then your aura expands, because your level of freedom expands and such brings a newer understanding to light, a higher revelation of what is real, and so you begin to remember.  You begin to remember what you knew as a child before your parents and our society started conditioning your brain and cutting your freedom, debilitating your aura and lowering your energy, designing the illusions of matter and of lower perceptions.

Mature love.

 

Does a mature and wise person “fall in love” or becomes love…??  Isn’t there a difference…??  Doesn’t “fall in love” imply a process of blind possession or slavery where you lose all conscience for the other person…??–But is this true love though…??


As I see it, a truly mature person, a wiser individual no matter the age, sees through all this pitiful and childish nonsense, and so he does not fall in love because he deeply understands that true love is an essence of beautiful and rich freedom which expands and does not own or become slave to another.  Why would you fall in love and lose reality of what love truly is…??

000ce3752fe25a135ecc3c6e6fe94267

No, the wiser man knows what the heart of this connection we call love is, so he raises himself in love, he is love and thus fills himself and surrounds himself with this divine substance which wraps around whoever and whatever is in contact with him.

But the ignorant world has created this concept of falling in love, “falling;” as if love is a dangerous thing which bashes you on the head and you lose all conscience and freedom, you fall and you become a slave to another.  And so, now you are lost because your very identity is found in this other person who “made you” fall, you are obsessed with this person, you belong to this person and this person must belong to you, so there is jealousy, fear of losing this person, and the popular and egoistical belief/a threat of a “broken heart.”

Broken heart…??  What sort of ignorant idiocy is this?! … But the heart is never broken, because love is not a thing; and because true love in reality does not emanate from your heart muscle.  You may feel your heart beat fast, but that is just your ego/your desire making your heart go like that.  Love is literally the energy inside each cell of your body; thus, when you are truly in love, beyond desire and attachment, you feel it in your whole body like beautiful and harmonious symphony which gives you warmth, clarity of mind, courage, and freedom–and not any fear or confusion whatsoever…  Have you ever experienced this…??

And that is why two mature and wise persons in love help each other stay free, they become one because, even though there are two human beings now, love is an essence which penetrates all flesh and bone and so link each other by the energy inside each cell of their individual bodies.  Such divine energy which is attracted to each other like a moth to a flame.  There are no boundaries of matter, space or time in this deep and wonderful experience.

What is real about you…??

Whatever is brought on by matter, whatever is matter, is it of eternal value…?? What is of eternal value then…?? What is the eternal value of a human being, or of a flower, or of the earth underneath your feet, or of the shining stars above you…??
The surface or facade of things, of human beings, of the earth, is all an illusion, a mere pleasantness who travels a journey tied to time and space.  Prestige, physical attractiveness, a mind full of knowledge, beliefs, traditions, and so on and so forth, is all decaying, isn’t it…??  One year relevant and attached to opinions of the trend, the next not so much….

we-live-in-illusion-and-the-appearance-of-things-there-is-a-reality-we-are-that-reality-when-you-understand-this-you-see-that-you-are-nothing-and-being-nothing

Life passes, you get old, society changes, economy falters, you experience moments of joy and moments of loss, and you must then make the mature decision of inquiring, of exploring deeply and find out within yourself what is vital and what does not leave you; therefore, you must meditate seriously into yourself, analyze life deeply and find out for yourself what is the eternal value in you.  Religion, scriptures, spiritual groups, prayers, so-called “sacred” statues, and even philosophies from great ancient Masters cannot make you aware of this in your heart.

You might fill your intellect with all this enlightening data, but you must awaken in yourself to actually know the truth, the experience of what is your value, eternal value; however, does not matter what anybody has told you or what you have read, knowledge is not the actual experience, so it is imperative that you meditate and seriously self-inquire.  If you do not do this, then you cannot really live this life the way it must be lived, with pure love and freedom; and you will neglect yourself and your value as well, which shall bring you great fear of physical death and confusion about what really lives and what really dies…  Are you anxious about aging…??  Are you wondering about a better life before you die…??  Problems keep you up at night…??  What are you going to do about it…??–Just exist and survive like an ignorant and subservient coward…??–Or find out on your own like a courageous Master…??

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”  ~ Aristotle; ancient Greek philosopher, poet, writer, and scientist.

Free from images…

Is an expectation real in itself…??  Is an expectation an attachment to a mere mental image…??  What causes someone to expect anything and lean on that expectation…??


The human being is ruled by his psyche, thus his thoughts in time become his greatest influences, his past and future slave-drivers; and so, this causes his ego to be as powerful as he ignorantly desires, for he lives overwhelmed by these entities called thoughts, which are always trying to escape reality by imagining, expecting, desiring, reliving past miseries or joys.  But it is indeed this past and future seeking which causes all illusion in man, is it not…??

Expectation, for example, is an image formed in the mind, a mere construct of a future as seen through the eyes of the thought-illusion/thought-form.  An expectation then is a strong desire projected into a future, and all projections are not realities (whether possible or not); consequently, this is attachment to this particular projected image, which in most cases brings a false sense of security and joy, or anxiety and misery, for as long as the projected image is given power and full attention.

To be free is an absolute state of present awareness where you entertain your behaviors in the Now, and where the mind is filled with love for what is happening around you instead of being filled with anxiety and the various forms of fear, pleasure and pain, which the past and the future hold.

It is extremely important to restrain ourselves from mentally roaming and living in an expectation, thus transforming ourselves into the awareness of this moment and so love and appreciate what is happening around us, whether positive or negative, seeing it as a blessing and a lesson.

“Whatever it is you’re seeking won’t come in the form you’re expecting.”  ~ Haruki Murakami; Japanese writer.

Do you see life for what it is…??

Isn’t a thought of misery what makes life miserable…??  And isn’t a thought of joy what makes life joyful…??  Are thoughts how you experience life then…??
Your life is indeed seen through the screen of your mind, and whether that screen is filthy or not is what you will experience in life; so, life in its nature, as it happens around you, is neutral, neither positive nor negative, but the color of your screen, or depending on how clean or filthy it is, is what shall make the difference of your unique experience.  Can you understand this…??


30221906_445005462599488_2057300995620208640_n
And certainly life can become a hell when our thoughts disturb us and get the worst reactions from us, but we may say that this is the extremely powerful illusion of our egos, which choose how to see life.  Because the mind sees life in terms of time, thus past and future, what was and what will be but never what actually is; for what actually is right now is added flavor by a thought of the past pressuring you or a thought of a future making you anxious.  If you are actually absorbed in the present, without thoughts from the past or the future, you are fine and without stress, are you not…??

The present moment, not 1 second before and not 1 second after but the very Now, is devoid or absolutely free of time and fear and all its forms of stress; furthermore, this Now is where your very existence is, is where happiness and love can be found within you, and this Now is the origin of all what life is.  The Now is life.  The past and future are not life, but they are constructs of your mind, of your ego and its screen…   Ask yourself:  “Have I ever actually lived the past or the future…??  Or have I lived always the present moment, the Now, and my mind designs the illusion of past and future…??  …Think about it deeply…

And so, to master life, to really enjoy life no matter the situation, you must see life as a lesson to deeper understanding, something to experience and to free you from thinking too much; which is what creates regrets and all stress in the first place, thinking too much and getting lost in your thinking…

Remind yourself then that life is to be experienced and understood.  No more and no less…

“Be happy for this moment.  This moment is your life.” ~ Omar Khayyam; Persian mathematician, astronomer, and poet.

Are you still seeking…??

Thoughts are obsessive seekers, as in to become something, to find answers to something, to be guided by something, to attain something, are they not…??  And what are then human beings if not seekers, always searching and desiring to be taken somewhere by the hand…??  But true love and happiness reside beyond seeking, beyond the never-ending struggle for more.  Have you realized that within you yet…??

55df4734a85fe7be3bc1b5f928384e65--random-quotes-positive-thoughts
That is the whole problem, as people spend their lives thinking for too long and asking others, always seeking for the thrill of the answer from others, never actually bringing change to their lives, missing the proactive way of living.


When most people think about meditation, thoughts come up, questions fog the answers, thus they seek without actually seeing the truth of it.  They desire to know how.  Techniques.  What happens in meditation.  What does meditation bring.  How can they start.  And they get answers from somebody else, they never meditate on them, and then they continue seeking and asking the same questions over and over again.  And this does not bring any change into their lives, but it only fuels more questioning, more empty seeking, and more frustration because they are not developing the way they must.

It is Being, meditation is.  Right now your intellect agrees with me; meditation is Being.  But you really don’t know what Being really is, do you…??  You need to have the actual experience to realize in your heart what it means, and you haven’t meditated.  Or have you seriously, deeply meditated…?? …

The witness knows all.  Fish, sharks, whales, they all swim and roam the waters of the big ocean; so, they know only what they see and experience as they are swimming by, going from here to there.  But the ocean waters stay always there, they witness the moon, the sun, the storm, the rain, the cold, the heat, and all beings swimming in them.  They never change.  The ocean waters are the ultimate witness.

Your thoughts are the beings swimming, and you are what holds them, what witness them.  You are indeed the unchanging witness.  And to know the silent and wise, Enlightened and divine, witness that you are, you must go beyond the beings swimming, you must be one with meditation.  The witness has no questions, knows no effort, brings no fear and anxiety.  The witness is life itself without the fogginess and chaos created by your humanity…\

Now, would you experience it yourself…??

“You should not be carried away by the dictation of the mind, but the mind should be carried by your dictation.” ~ A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami; Indian Gaudiya Vaishnavism spiritual teacher, guru, founder preceptor (Acharya) of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, and author.

Are you suffering…??

Whatever suffering you are going through right now, whatever issue you have, whatever memory pains you, it feels so deep and constant, buried into your thoughts and overwhelming your whole body as you bring memory of it, because in reality there is no separation; but it is your ego, your intellect, the one which tells you to run away from it or to fill your life with ways to ignore it, which thus builds the illusion of being two–i.e., you and suffering.  This is why life is experienced as duality and Oneness seems to be just a nice concept; for thought, the ego, makes it all dual in order for us to choose between two, form different human relationships, and see differences in this physical world.

dc21af099b8c5078f23989797b5bb91d
But underneath the myriad of structures of this world, underneath your joy and your suffering, there is only one essence which is the experience, neither positive nor negative… just an experience… just an experience your ego chooses to translate into joy or suffering… and which becomes the dual experience of your humanity… the differences you think and feel every single day…
29176900_434551076978260_8728962567407403008_n
Being human means duality, which is moments of joy and moments of pain, pure and impure thoughts, feelings of confidence and feelings of worthlessness; and so, all these are us, are part of our humanity.  And because it is part of our humanity this dual process, then we must embrace and acknowledge whatever we go through, not ignore it or escape it.  But we must welcome it and accept it, not dwell in it and not relive it over and over again; so, you are to feel it, explore that feeling, accept, and move on with your life, and for that you MUST forgive yourself and others.

 

Two are One.  One and the same.  When you run away from something you feel, for example suffering, you run away or ignore yourself; and because of this deep process of neglect upon yourself by yourself, then suffering comes back strong and never leaves you–i.e, as a form of self-punishment or self-slavery, one may say. 

But instead of ignoring or running away from it, you must acknowledge and accept, just be, welcome it and do not react to whatever you feel… because in time you will feel the Oneness in you… because in time your mind and your body will become one and you will not suffer what before troubled you so… because in time you will embrace the love of acceptance and your mind will stop dwelling on past memories while resisting to leave…

“Buddhism teaches us not to try to run away from suffering.  You have to confront suffering.  You have to look deeply into the nature of suffering in order to recognize its cause, the making of the suffering.”  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.
