See yourself.

Your own ignorance, your own lack of insight into yourself is keeping you down. You might carry loneliness, resentment, guilt, self-pity, jealousy; but all these are just manifestations of your own ignorance. Your ignorance lies in not knowing who you are and what you can accomplish. Your own dreams and greater possibilities rest in your grasp, but your attention on the tragic, on the sad, on the anxiousness, on the frustration with yourself is what deviates you from the bigger picture. The bigger picture being what’s beyond all this negativity you keep feeding. And negativity is what you have to learn to let go.

When I say ‘you,’ I mean ‘we’; because any of us needs to remind ourselves that all thoughts of despair appear and become strong in us only if we lack self-awareness. Lack of self-awareness is lack of insight into myself, into my strengths, into my better self. For example, if I go through something difficult in life, this doesn’t mean that I should overwhelm myself with self-pity and frustration; and so let my life become worse and even more difficult in the future through my feelings of despair. These feelings of despair that I have allowed into myself, that I have created really, mark who I am to myself; and how I see myself.

One thing to understand is that how I see myself is everything in life. So, ask yourself: Do I see myself patient, committed, able…?? Do I believe that my life will turn around if I believe in myself even through hardship…?? Do I lack real insight and understanding of my own strengths and capacities…?? Why should I feel depressed because things right now are not going as I expect…?? Life is based on asking yourself these questions, with honesty, with desire for true answers. I know that most of us ignore these questions, but in reality the answers to these questions may give us strength and insight into how we really feel. It is all about how we feel. Because your life is you. So, in order for life to be good, then you must feel good about it; and you must make it happen in your mind first, not wait around for some external miracle. Create the miracle yourself.

Full of confidence

 “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” 

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

There is no worst enemy than one’s self-pity. There is no greater obstacle you bring to yourself than overthinking and analyzing something to death. Life is to be lived with courage, the successful life that is. But, of course, we all feel lack of confidence, some self-pity, maybe sadness about ourselves and where we’re going in life at times. Or perhaps, when one is lacking self-awareness, we tend to secretly compare ourselves to others. That is human and we all do it. But the truth is that this kind of mental behavior does not help us in any way. We human beings are meant to be ourselves, unique; and it is why each of us has a different experience, each of us feels different, each of us carries our own styles and ways of thinking.

This might sound harsh, but a great life is only for the brave among us. By brave I mean the ones who leave our pasts behind, the ones who are absolutely ourselves, the ones who do put importance to what others think and feel about us. It is my life and I experience and learn from myself, for myself.

This is not selfishness. This is empowering ourselves. This is saying ‘I create what I want, with patience, with courage, with love for myself; and it might go against what society teaches and does, but still it is all about my happiness, growing in character and in confidence.

The fact is that we are what we daily think. If we daily think we can’t do something, or be something, or achieve something, than we are that. And we so become what we daily think. Because what we daily think about ourselves becomes great part of our subconscious, which means it becomes who we are in all situations in life. Life is no more than this. Life becomes this. What I do is to be positive in spite of whatever goes on around me. People do not matter because they cannot live your life. Each one of us lives our own. So focus on your life. What do you think about yourself right now?? How is that helping you?? Why do you think that?? Are you comparing yourself to others?? Are you living in past mistakes?? Are you living in past, hurtful memories??


Thanks for reading.

Now, let me remind you that curses do exist. Darkness rules us all. So what do you do with all that anger and hatred you carry…?? Have you visited purgatory with Ben yet…??

The Lord of Darkness has trapped Ben in a dark world, in another dimension, a purgatory if you will. He must discover why he’s been put there. He must save the ancient gods’ planet from total oblivion as well.

Self-care

How do you gain confidence…??

How do you become stronger, sharper, more able to lead yourself in life with success??

When you start saying in your head that you are love, that you are beautiful, that you are enough, then you start feeling that in time. And when this happens you give yourself the charm, the magnetic pull, the energy to be more and to attract more in life–in relationships and in all situations. But how do you accomplish this…?? One day at a time. Don’t expect everything to come to you when you want it. Be patient with yourself. Each thought, each day, creates your feelings; and this feeling becomes you, and in time it becomes your persona, your character.

This happens subconsciously and it makes you either weaker, shyer, more influenced by society, or stronger, more confident, less influenced by society and more unique. It all depends on your thoughts about yourself daily. Do you remain anxious?? Do you forgive yourself, your mistakes, your past?? Do you belittle yourself in any way?? We are all possible of being great, confident, to achieve our goals; however, we need to become aware of our self-talk, and we must raise ourselves from feeling down and unsuccessful. This is an individual process, nobody can help you; but you have to do it, train your own mind daily to react and respond better to yourself and to others.

When you carry a lot of guilt, anxiety, anger, and even frustration in you, then you become a magnet for bad things, for more of the same. But if you keep your mind free of this and calmed, then you attract good things into your life, and so you get to enjoy more your life. And you become more attractive to yourself and to others, and this gives you confidence to explore other ways, to find solutions, to raise yourself above your problems. And your mood improves, which means you can now understand life better and act more positively in it.


Thanks for reading.

I want to show you now the cover design I just finished for my nonfiction book about love and life, titled: “I ALWAYS LOVED YOU. Creatures of Eternal Love.”

The aware life

Why is the world the way it is…?? How to see past this..?? How to let go of my own negativity…??

The world can be challenging, people dying of hunger, illnesses, great natural disasters, and every immoral choice you can imagine. No one can deny this. You can see this wherever you look.

But it is in us to wake up each morning and find some miracle in our lives. Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen, I think about the positive that will happen. The positive that will happen is not about what will happen per se; but about my own mental attitude, the content of my thoughts, me letting go of anxiety no matter what happens. It is about my mental freedom. If my self-talk steers away from harmony, if the voices in my head start seeking the negative and loudly shout the pain from failure, then it means that I must become more aware of myself and steer my thoughts towards something positive and helpful in my day.

How you feel, and how you experience life, will be a result of your daily self-talk. Do you punish yourself because you “failed” at something?? Are you judgmental in the way you see your moments in life?? What about the voices in your head about your past…?? Are they loud and always bringing up the heartache and tragedies you lived?? Can you let go of this?? Can you not remain attached to the voices that bring anxiety into your life?? Because if you want happiness, you must let go, you must train your mind to seek positivity in the negative, to see the beauty in the ugly. Not saying this is easy, but just saying this is the only way.

Please see my article about happiness here: The essence of happiness. We can then say that a person’s character is his/her daily thinking. I will become the lover of my life, no matter what happens in it, if I remain self-aware, which is to remain focused in my daily self-talk. I will be what I tell myself daily. If I tell myself daily that life is struggle and that nobody gives me a chance, then that is the way I will remain; because this kind of self-talk is not giving me hope and strength to become better than I am now. But if I tell myself that I can get better and that I will keep on looking for better opportunities, then I will get stronger and change my life; because this kind of self-talk gives me hope and it revives my human spirit.

And it is all about keeping that flame alive (the human spirit), that passion for life which resides in you, maybe buried deeply; however, it never disappears completely as long as you are alive, so seek it. This is your challenge in life. This is my challenge in life. We are all here to keep that flame alive. Because life gets better only in this way.

Progress.

I encountered a man once who always talked about politics, blaming politicians and the government. This is all he did. He lived his life blaming others. And when things were wrong in his life, he would always say, “Well, God wants this,” and “Why is God doing this??” It was never his fault, but always another person’s fault. Either a real person in politics or an imaginary belief in the skies. And on top of that, he would look around him daily. If he felt wrong or somehow upset, frustrated or angry, he would blame his boss, or his neighbors, or his own wife. He was totally arrogant and wouldn’t see his own weakness in the pitiful blaming game he was constantly playing.

Life is a string of moments. These moments, each one of them, are originated by choices. Intimate or very personal choices. We are always choosing, even if we are not aware of it. We have a conscious and subconscious. When the conscious does not choose, the subconscious does; and it is automatic. The subconscious is reflected in our habits and behaviors, the ones we are not fully aware of taking. The issue is that if the economy is bad, then you will blame your life on this in order to feel better about your bad conscious and subconscious choices. The same happens with everything in your life. And this is running away from your personal responsibilities.

If you divorce or break up, then you will blame the other person. At least most people do this. In your anxious mind, this excuses you from your own misguided behavior during the relationship. So, what you are doing is denying your own faults; and by this denial you are programming your subconscious to keep making wrong choices in the future. This is not working on yourself, and it is keeping you down in terms of love, happiness, and that great feeling of success we all want. Focusing on yourself, in the other hand, helps you see your own faults; thus you can better understand your own subconscious programming, fix it, and through some soul-searching better yourself.

Nature of mind.

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??

Pay attention.

 

mental-health-quote-hp-73-2

 

Be patient.  Be humble.  Be committed.  Stay on course and focused.  Don’t let negativity, loud and anxious voices in your head, and your stress, bring you down. 

Nothing can disturb you more than your own mind, so focus on self-discipline specially in the midst of hard times.  Keep your mind and body sacred.  Watch what you eat.  Be careful of what you allow into your mind.

Be mindful of your thoughts.  Pay attention to the time you give to others, because people can suck you into their dramas and anxieties.  In order to lead your life successfully, you must be self-aware at all times.

In the present.

 

Whatever-the-present-moment-contains

 

Don’t block yourself from that warm feeling of wholeness in you.  Don’t fill your mind with desires for something and/or someone.  Leave all the overthinking and planning obsessively.  The worst you can do is to be here while your mind is somewhere else.  Be present wholly.

To be present wholly, be actually present, stop thinking so much, and learn to value the moment you are living.  It all stems from the moment you are living right now–happiness, love, success, confidence, etc.  Don’t let your mind wander and steal from you the value of this moment.

You have one life to live, lead it from the present moment.  Many times people engage in an activity while their minds are somewhere else.  This is not productive.  This is not being aware of yourself.  This is seeking the illusion of love and happiness in your mind, instead of being yourself love and happiness in your body and in the moment.

See yourself.

 

psycho-cybernetics

 

So, if you are confident and strong you do not have chains, you do not feel the need to belong, to get the attention of others and to boost your own ego.  But, sadly, this is not the case of most people, as good, well-intentioned, and decent as they might be.

Vanity, self-absorption, an obsessive and unconscious angst leads people to seek validation from others, to seek to prove themselves to others.   This people escape themselves by competing with others, by designing ways to create something which makes them stand out, show off, and separate themselves from the rest.

The most unconscious in this are politics and religion (and the people who practices these abominations)–i.e., the engines of immorality and divide in the world.

And this comes about because there is loneliness inside, and anxiety, and there is no identity in the individual.  See, when one has identity, or feels identity, there is no need to prove yourself to others in order to fit in or belong.

Being one with yourself requires no seeking to belong.  When you feel truly whole, what can the masses offer you really??  You have to take time out of your day and see this truth in yourself, silently, confidently.

Observe how the ignorance in the world moves, how people are obsessed with needing to belong to this and that, so you can free yourself and stop imitating them.  And that very enlightenment will change you completely, and steer your life in a better, more clear direction.

The Miraculous Birth.

 

52736790_639223733177659_9210341737438904320_n

 

What is to be free and a better human being…??  And what is to be spiritual…??  And what is to be highly conscious in life…?? 

They are the same, even though ignorance in the world, beginning by religions, tell you differently.

Being spiritual has no relation with The Bible or with any religion or “sacred” text.  Being spiritual is something that you carry inside, whether you are a saint or a murderer; however, to experience that intelligence, goodness or spirituality that you are, you must focus on creating it in your mind, or in becoming conscious/aware of it.

Hitler was not aware of it.  Pedophiles, even “religious” ones, are not aware of it.  Trump is not aware of it.  Many people are not aware of it, because they allow their environments and activities to reveal a “spiritual identity.”

So, people reads The Bible.  Or go to their damned churches.  Or listen to Sadhguru or any other.  And this means they are spiritual and conscious…??

Being spiritual, conscious, aware, is about integrity, morals and ethics through your daily behaviors, because exactly this changes your inner state, your mental state to a liberated and heavenly state–i.e., a state in which you create yourself and your life due to your higher integrity.

And that is when the superior human being is born, the intelligent creature who feels whole and does not lean or seeks his identity in his environment–in his religion, in his so-called “sacred” texts, in his lies and beliefs.

The greatest miracle in life is indeed to realize this and become integrity in all you do–i. e., realize that by eating meat you help kill the environment, realize that any lie tears relationships apart, realize that religions cannot bring salvation or truth, realize that love is not a desire, realize that all politics are games of power, realize that society will change when you start by changing yourself, realize that you are responsible for all that happens to you, etc. etc.
