Heart and commitment.

  • In order to set goals with heart and commitment, one must be self-disciplined. In order to be self-disciplined, one must be patient. To be patient is definitely a virtue that we all carry, but one that not many exercise. Your mind must be patient, work step by step, accept the days as they come; and through it all your vision must be set on a big goal.

  • Each day work towards fulfilling or completing small goals, patiently, with love and commitment. This leads you to remain faithful and firm on reaching that bigger goal in the far future. See, the enjoyment in life is not the actual big goal you have set in the future; but the enjoyment is in the small goals you complete every day.

For as long as you breathe.

So many people seeking things out there–i.e., better finances, different diets to lose weight, ways to cope with psychological trauma, relationships rooted on true affection, scriptures and religions to find God, etc. etc.

But life is not outside you, lived through activities, created by activities.  The activities, the seeking out there, is really a mirror of your actual inner experience; for the purpose of the activities is just to guide you to recognize your inner self.

Life only satisfies you, offers you love and happiness, when you stop seeking desperately and observe yourself.  What is outside you, your situations out there, are mere illusions, just reflections of how well, or how poor, you truly know yourself.

And so, you fix whatever needs fixing in yourself, forget the rest.  The rest comes into place when the inner gets better.  Your inner self is the only reality.  Work on that for as long as you breathe.

Rising and rising…

 

1e23e3d98ebb46c63abfe60444ec5469

 

No one lives a perfect life.  There is always some aspect which troubles the mind.  And so, it is the mind the one which must be tamed and not allowed to make things worse than they really are.

Wisdom is to see this, to observe how your mind reacts to situations, to what he/she said, and to what it says about yourself.  You must realize this and rise above your own struggle.

Do not wait for things to be perfect, or for situations in life to be exactly as you want them to be; but keep moving forward, adapt to your current life as it is, and become better and better.

You keep on rising and leaving your past behind.  That is what you have to do.  Control your mind, allow harmony to guide you through life, and so think clearly how to keep on going.

Through this Energy.

words-cast-spells-thats-s-called-spelling-words-are-energy-13683965

We can build or destroy through words, we can be freed or enslaved, people can be inspired or hurt, and situations can be understood or made worse through them.  But most people seem to ignore these facts, do they not…??

So, pay attention to what you say and how you say it, be true to how you feel but also be true to how you manage to express it.  The creativity and the understanding first have to fill your mind, then you may proceed with intelligence.

For it is all about energy.  Thoughts, feelings, words–energy, vibrations, dimensional language which has to be used properly through self-control and self-discipline.

Try to make sense of yourself and of your environment by focusing on your use of words (mental and otherwise), by not gossiping, by not following your anger and frustration, by being patient and inquiring into how you feel before you speak, by being highly conscious of absolute truth over simple belief.

Sometimes is better to keep quiet.  In silence there is much to learn, much understanding, much energy to recharge us and lead us to new and deep insights.  And a wise man knows this, because he observes himself acting through this glorious energy, and so he manages it properly to gain reality.

What is your direction in life…??

Whether you are 20 years old or 90 years old that title poses a very deep and important question to you, to all of us.  Because it is not about your distant future, but about what you are doing this moment; that is, what is your energy trying to accomplish, what is your direction, what drives you, what motivations you have to do this right now.  You have to find out what is your reason for doing what you are doing, find the light and the marvel in all you do; otherwise you will lose interest and confidence in your direction in life, thus your energy will be depleted and thoughts of depression and meaninglessness will enter your mind.

In each moment we are transforming energy and directing energy.  Of course, this energy is creative; we create with our thoughts, we create with our feelings, and we create with our actions…  “Wherever we direct our attention, we expend creative energy.”  ~ Samael Aun Weor…  The “goal” or essence of life in this physical realm is structure, structure guides us and maintains us focused; so in any spiritual path (moral path of the human being) to learn how to properly manage that energy is our “goal”, to use that energy in the right way, in order to stop trapping the energy in the ego-centers of the mind, to cease that bad habit which one might be constantly performing even without awareness.

And for that, to direct and structure these energies, to step out of the ego and tame or wild and wayward thoughts, discipline is the key.  It is freedom to be ourselves and express what we really have inside us; thus, a good, illuminating, healthy discipline focuses the mind and maintains it focused and directing its energy in something of value, so transmuting energy which can be otherwise wasted in trivialities and unconscious endeavors we now turn into value and identity from our inner selves.  And isn’t the most gratifying and greatly blissful thing to know that we have value within us and actually see that value every day…??

So, do not pay attention to your situation but focus on your discipline and on creating value within yourself, for yourself; not to be praised or admired by others, but to be recognized and loved by yourself, to see the value you actually have right now within yourself–otherwise you will lose interest and lose your own way in life.

And I would say the most important part of your life, the one that builds character and morals, health and confidence are practices of discipline.  For example, I get up every morning at 5 am to meditate one hour, then I check my messages from email and Facebook, then I exercise, then take a cold shower, and so on and so forth. 

But discipline must be built in practices you see as important and healthy for you, individually just for you, nobody should tell you; and if you do this, in time, you will develop a routine and build your confidence and strength.  Everything you do in life must be made with determination and confidence, and a set of discipline in small things in life molds your mind to have determination and confidence in all other aspects of life.

The capacity to be ALONE.


Why is it that for most people being alone is so difficult…??  Do you realize that when it comes to love and happiness, inward manifestations, they can only be known by one who knows how to be alone…??

31206238_452512935182074_619718125310443520_n
The undisciplined mind is always chatting and seeking entertainment and the company of other minds, seeking noise and distraction from the inner self; therefore, the egoistical mind hates to be alone, it despises meditation and depth, so it can never realize inward truths like love and happiness…  So what does it find out there…??

Out there, it finds attachment and pleasure.  The superficial mind loves attachment and pleasure because it distracts from the truth that the individual is not whole, the individual is lost and does not feel whole; so, the individual must seek for another person, another relationship, another buy, another trip, to feel whole…  Thus the illusion continues…  The illusion which says that the person knows love and happiness, but in reality the person only knows schemes in time and space, namely attachment and pleasure…  Isn’t this sheer madness, to live your whole life enslaved to this egoistical mirage and never actually experience true love and happiness…??

Love, same as happiness, is the foundation of what we are.  So how can it be found out there with all the noise and confusion…?? …  No.  Only the one who knows how to be alone knows it, because love is meditation, as life is meditation; and meditation only happens inwardly, when you accept and befriend your own silence, like the Sun finds its own energy and heat inwardly to bathe all of us and create life outwardly.

Awaken and Hunt!

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain. To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices; but today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.”  ~ Kevyn Aucoin; American make-up artist, photographer and author.


We all have gifts and talents, and we were given the opportunity in this time, in this era, in this life period, to live this physical life to find them in each one of us; but, sadly, many people ignorantly look for them outside of themselves, and thus they never find anything which can bring them true happiness.
e20f422d44c4f898b5246c2a0bad4014
But you, as an awakening and wise person, must not waste your time here on this earth, look within you for whatever is for you expressing your unique self, freeing your spirit and being truly you. That is the whole point of this life. And if you can’t understand that then you will never find true and constant happiness.
 

To be here on this planet and fully live and enjoy life means to be present, which means you observe before you judge and complain, you learn what experiences may want to teach you before you get angry with life, you pay attention to what is happening around you in the present moment and not dwell in past memories or visions of the future.

The reality of life is that you must be present, focused on the moment of Now; so, live and enjoy wisely, follow your goals and love without fear, respect yourself enough to give yourself chances to become better, find your true passions and gifts within yourself. And for all this, again, be present, because happiness is now, in the present and not in the past or in the future.

 
Whether you think of an afterlife or not doesn’t matter, your beliefs don’t matter; the only thing that matters is reality, which is that you were born to be happy and successful in whatever you choose to do; but you do have to work at it with heart and intelligence, patiently, wisely, because you have been given time for a reason–i.e., so you can regroup your thoughts, discipline yourself, and learn to create your path.
25398828_760107287513374_3664472929160547245_n
So, mind your time on this earth, be patient, do not rush into things, plan and analyze what you are going to do, but be constant and do not waste your time.
As long as you are alive, you have a chance to better your life.

Truly Sacred.

“Never give up on what you really want to do.  The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts.”  ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.; America inspirational writer.


“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”  ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe; American abolitionist and author.


 

What is life if not a string of challenges to make you stronger…??  And what is the purpose of life if not to achieve bliss in all you do by not giving in to these challenges…??

images
Unfortunately, most people see life’s challenges and obstacles as a threat and something to fear or avoid at all cost; however, this is in fact the richness of life given unto you for no price whatsoever, life gives and gives for you to learn and become a better human being.

 

That is why one must never give in to fear and temptation, one must be watchful and alert, and so one must keep going faithfully because life responds to and respects the warrior who holds his goal and follows his dream without losing the passion, the fuel of his human spirit.

 

“The light at the end of the tunnel,” they say. But I say you create your own light in your journey, and if you create your own light then there is no darkness or challenge which can weaken you or stop you from becoming great in your personal pursuits, and there is no society which can ever deviate you or distract you from your goals.

And the golden key to create your own light is self-discipline in your daily behaviors and the process of envisioning your goals and never ever letting them go, not letting them go for your family, friends, or anybody else for that matter.

Self-discipline is the golden key then, the ability to control your feelings, your reactions to temptations, and overcome your weaknesses in the pursuit of a noble goal you think is right; and so, you do this by creating a heartfelt and intense passion which will give you the strength and endurance to resist all challenges.  You must select what you read and watch, what you think about and what you listen from others; that is, you must create your world and envision it, honor it every single day in your thoughts as the most sacred element to create out of your godly human spirit.

Make your dreams, your goals, sacred, and so sacred that nobody can touch them or get in your way to honor them.

Forged unbreakable.

“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn.  Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes in you.  These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”  ~ Phillip Sweet; musician.


“I will keep smiling, be positive and never give up!  I will give 100 percent each time I play.  These are always my goals and my attitude.”  ~ Yani Tseng; Taiwanese professional golfer playing on the U.S.-based LPGA Tour. She is the youngest player ever, male or female, to win five major championships.


 

In life you will have challenges that will try to really, deeply break you and show you the light you really are, and this cannot be avoided because life is wiser than any of us and knows exactly what you are capable to overcome; therefore, your enemy shall not be the challenges themselves, but the people around you and also your own ego, for they will try to infect you and sicken you so weakness may overwhelm you and the light in you gets lost.

stopbadvibes_compressed

Life tries to break you through big challenges, indeed it does in its unlimited wisdom, because in order to be reborn into the light you must die, or your old, weaker self must die and be forged in the pits of hell to now re-emerge as the unstoppable god who is not deterred by any mediocrity around him.

It took me years, but after my father’s death I understood that human beings have been given much more strength than we think, and this might be obvious to some; however, until you really realize this in your heart and embrace it by creating a path of self-discipline, you won’t really experience this mighty truth in your existence.

Remember who you truly are beyond all thoughts of self-pity you may have.  Remember that the only true reality comes to you when your mind is free from the influence of others.

Stop talking about your goals and dreams, and use that energy to step by step go towards them.

Forge your own destiny!

Do not let others infect you with their words and actions.jpg

The indestructible.

“Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.”  ~ Abraham Joshua Heschel; Polish-American rabbi and philosopher.


 

Plainly put, self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.  And as Lao Tzu wisely said, “Conquering others is mere strength, conquering yourself is true power.”

d10672083d024bfd5562e8b2793ef52b--self-control-quotes-successful-quotes
Most people do not have guidance in life, they lack structure and they are always set adrift in expectation for the next moment, and this happens because they are like ships without a sure route, without a destination mapped, they bounce here and there and when things go wrong they complain and feel like victims.

There is nothing more reassuring and excitingly peaceful, where your mind is set on a definite course and does not deviate, like self-discipline because it is exactly self-respect, it is loving yourself so much that you only do the things which are best for your life, the things that keep you in harmonious track–i.e., eating healthy and the right amount, getting right sleep, working when you have to work and enjoying yourself when you have time for yourself, thinking the right thoughts and sharing in good conversation which elevates, etc. etc.

That is called conquering yourself, ruling yourself, which makes you truly a master of yourself and of your destiny. 

Self-discipline gives you strength and confidence, and it helps you appreciate yourself enough that you want to better yourself every single day, while becoming more aware of the things you must do in order to be successful in life.
