Faithful to the horizon.

daab9b9042ed9c04e25f7d41161bdc17

 

  • I am all about letting go of the past.  About detachment from negative memories which bring self-pity and intimidation into our lives.  I write about this because life must be looked though positive and inspired eyes.  A life which is lived otherwise is a life which is painful, struggle, frustration, burden.

  • Each one of us is different, and that is our strength.  Each one of us suffered loss, heartbreak, tragedy, abuse at some level.  We must remind ourselves that we have done this, and that we are still going.  Let this be your inspiration  to keep moving.   
  • Please follow me if you see life like me.  And check out my books below.  Thanks.

Weakness.

 

 

weak

 

Don’t ask what makes you weak, mediocre, immoral; for you already know.  You may lie to yourself and say that you do not know, and then play that intellectual game of always seeking and seeking answers to escape the truth; but you do know deep inside.

Extra fatty foods, physical laziness, gossip, hiding the truth, clinging to past memories, attachment to expectations, impulsive reactions, chasing money desperately, and so on and so forth.  Don’t you know then…??

What is your life if not greater development, always moving forward in you, through your better health, through your rational ideas, through your moral behaviors…??  And what are you if not your life, which is how you think and feel–so your developing experience moving forward…??

Anything that makes you weak, lazy, stubborn, envious, angry, unhealthy, etc., must not be made part of you; because, in very fact, whatever you add to you, in thinking, feeling, eating, certainly becomes you.

And you cannot live a happy life, in love with it each day, if you become weak in this aspect.  Weakness brings suffering, confusion, immorality, wrong decisions, delusions in your ways of thinking; thus, it slowly destroys your life, it slowly destroys you.

Greater Evolution.

 

bd97c617ddb8fe3e2c56a31fd684d5a2

 

The essence, the very heart and soul of this physical existence is that each one of us is here to learn to transmute; that is, to transform our moments of depression, our losses, our own suffering into something we can use to move on, some strength to see into the future, some light into darkness.

That is the whole point of your life, to be who you are trapped inside, the one you do not know yet, the one buried underneath all your self-pity and sadness, buried deep under your opinions and beliefs of how life should be for you.

Quite often people imagine their lives, their futures, their desires, and they expect them to happen so, they become attached to these manifestations in their psyche.  But is this truly healthy…??  Is this truly real…??

Life is not something vain out of your ego, so you must learn to see this and welcome life as it comes to you.  Enjoy and learn, transform the moments of challenge and anger into moments from which you can develop yourself as a better person.

A better person who can actually make good choices and behave morally superior than he/she was before, as the person deeply buried under all the suffering and self-pity of egoistical desires and expectations.

No human creature is the same from moment to moment, we all change emotionally and psychologically, and even physiologically as our cells go through transformation; however, this evolution, this change we live, is in fact what makes human experience something of great worth, so you can learn to become better the next moment of your life, and the next one, and so on and so forth.

Stronger.

 

inspirational-quote-keep-rising-ENTITY-800x720

 

Life is full of lessons and opportunities.  Lessons can bring us growth in every aspect, if we allow the lessons to do such a thing in our experience, if we do indeed see past the frustration and the suffering in order to learn.

And, if we see past the anger and frustration, the anxiety and the pain we feel at times, we may then absorb the lesson, master ourselves slowly with each new experience; hence, we grow and we encounter better opportunities to be and acquire more, to feel happier, to be more successful in every aspect.

But, of course, this is not automatic and fast, you must develop the divine trait of patience; for patience gives you determination, commitment, wisdom in life.  He who has infinite patience can know true love and happiness; because infinite patience allows your mind time to see and find this within you.

And wisdom is needed, absolutely, because in life you have challenges at each step you take, you have temptations offering you what you desire if you have less moral values and ethical behaviors, you have anger and neglect from others around you, you have many things with which you have to deal every day.

And if you fall into temptation or if you commit a mistake, you must keep on going and seek truth, get back to the right path and endure some more; however, you have to be always prepared mentally to stand alone and firm, to be your own person, accept your weaknesses and the things in your character in which you must improve.

 

In order to see and walk life with wisdom, you must be patient and accept your life as it is, transform yourself slowly into a better, stronger person and soon you will turn things around and improve your life as well.

Resurrection.

To run away from challenges is to fear.  To hate pain and do anything we can to avoid it is to fear.  To whine and complain about the past and about the difficult situations we have is to fear.  And fear is like poison in your blood, once it is there, inside you, you might not feel it damaging you at first; however, in time, sooner or later, it will eat away all your energy for hope, faith, and strength to keep living a life you desire–i.e., it shall eat away your joy and make you see life as meaningless.
 
b6685bf525f5be28493a629a4a6bdef1

When there is no energy for hope, faith, and strength, the human creature is as good as dead; because what matters in life, what designs your life, is how you feel inside, the energy to enjoy life you have, and so without hope, faith and strength you are nothing.  We can see this in the people who have killed themselves around the world, slowly or in a period of time; but depression is a deep chasm or infernal abyss which steals all your energy and distorts every experience you have.  And without the inner living and enjoying of your own experiences, what is there to this life…??

Some people pray, some meditate, some occupy their time reading inspirational books, some do other things which ignite great character in them to maintain a positive and vigorous energy.  Whatever you do, you must keep hope, faith, and strength; for these are the inner traits which keep a man or woman afloat when the tempest tries to wallop you and sink you to the depths of the sea.

This starts in your mind, as everything starts in your mind, and this fact is not something you can choose or argue; so you must dedicate your time to produce the best mind, because in order to embody the spiritual traits needed to live a better life your mind has to flourish in paradise–i.e., resurrect from dead.

A strong mind.

developa-strong-mind-and-you-will-lead-a-strong-life-24421277
 
It is not knowledge per se that which illumines the mind or pollutes it, expands it wisely or shrinks it stubbornly, but it is the state and capacity of the mind itself; that is, if the mind is kept pure and away from the seven capital sins, if the mind is self-aware of its own violence, if the mind is kept strong by good food and drink energy, then the mind is ready to absorb good knowledge and make the person truly wise.  This is why some people who study and read, who have acquired much knowledge, are not wise at all; and so, they can display their intellects showing off their colorful feathers like a peacock, but when it comes to temptations and good actions they are weak and not an example of love at all.

You must understand that your mind and its capacity to absorb knowledge is the sum of all the things you do to keep it pure daily; for ‘pure’ in this case means clear, away from impressions which may disturb it and create unwelcome thoughts and images.  A strong mind is able to access knowledge which strengthens reality, and when reality is strengthened then you internalize that knowledge and it gives you a confidence out of love which does not boast and which does not make you prideful.

The mind becomes prideful, arrogant, self-absorbed, when the knowledge is not internalized and it does not give you reality; so, when the knowledge you acquire gives you blind beliefs, fantastical imaginations, feelings of superiority in any way, then it means that something is wrong, it means that your mind is weak and that it is not properly nourished to absorb reality from knowledge–just like a seed (knowledge) planted into a barren and weedy field (the weak and polluted mind) cannot give good crop or any at all.

Strength. Courage. Passion.

You do not need to show who you are supposed to be to the world, because to do this is to fill your mind with fear–fear of not being liked or respected by others if you do not meet their expectations, fear of being less than others, etc. etc.
“A Great Man is Always Willing to Be Little.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.

A great man, or woman, gets his/her strength from the magic within; and there is no need to seek displays of arrogance, violence, passions, and all egoistical activities, outwardly.  All must be self-discovered, worshiped in oneself; for all eternity lies in the content of our very cells, of our very atoms, and nothing lies outside it.  And what happens if you seek love and happiness, strength and courage, confidence and resolution, in outward activities, in your interaction with others, in displays of any kind out there…??  You fill your mind with lies to tell yourself, and feelings which won’t last; thus, you become attached, addicted to these outward displays.  Because they make you feel part of the collective, part of something meaningful, they give you some pleasure your ego holds as precious.  But is it really precious…??

It seems to me that life is a flowing river, rich and never-stopping waters, always moving and bringing change–whether your mind labels this change as right or wrong, fair or unfair.  And because you must flow with life, you must become life, as one must become one with one’s partner when truly in love with that someone, then you have to discover life within yourself by self-inquiry, by inner contemplation.  Courage, Strength, Passion, are natural “qualities” of God, of your soul, of your very being; and they cannot be found in the ego by the display of your ignorance, to be liked by others and to show your worth, your beauty, your uniqueness to the world….  The prayer, the worship, the meditation, the seeking, the discovery–all goes inside, it is created inside, and none of it outside.  And whosoever understand this in his heart (not solely in the intellect!), understands life itself then…

The Secret.

Amidst the turmoils of the world, of your everyday life, there is need to be strong; but this strength must come from within you, your only place for refuge which is eternal, unchanging, truthful.  Beyond the pettiness of the ego which always wants to compete and win over the ignorance of others, you must find yourself, free yourself and get the energy you need to face your day.  This must be your temple, and so you have to honor it by making a daily practice of visiting these eternal waters in you–i.e., waters of youth, waters of true alchemy and high conscience on which you can always rely.  This is the secret to be yourself, strong, unique, confident; thus to be love and happiness by making it a daily practice, to visit your inner self, quiet your thinking and connect with your emotions.

“The secret.”

Beautiful women wonder where my secret lies,
For I ever rise over the fools which begin fights.
Wise men come to me for pleasant conversation,
For I give them deepness without frustration.

And the secret has existed for ages and ages;
The common mind had erased it from the pages.
It is in the fire of the human soul where you find
Confidence, strength, the love which does bind.

Can you allow it to speak in a retired place
Surrounded by peace and harmony…??
Can you quiet your thoughts in the midst
Of your mental storms fearlessly…??

That is the secret: To discover your place of love.
That is the key: To free yourself and fly like a dove.
To be strong is to rise over your own ego and fear.
To be strong is to always find within you good cheer.

What happens under that Bodhi Tree…??

You know you’re eating too much and the wrong foods for your health.  You do realize that you always try to win instead of seeing the truth and learning from it.  You recognize your own stubbornness and yet you keep doing the same old things and remaining with the same thoughts and behaviors.  And you do a lot of other nonsense you are aware you do, but still you tell yourself lies to cover your own weaknesses, don’t you…??  Why do you keep doing this over and over again, and then you read about how to be better, you watch enlightening videos, you talk about love and the things you have read, you share this stupid knowledge with people and arrogantly you make yourself a Buddha…??

Why…??  I mean, is this to be truly intelligent…??
2b7af95b092adb9c31c8ad1249142949
You do everything, you seek everything out in the world–you go to yoga class in groups, you go to church, you read so-called “spiritual” texts, you buy the latest from the spiritual teachers in literary form, you ask people you trust how to live and decide better in your own life; but you never actually go to the root of the problem beyond your own ego–because all this knowledge you acquire from the world, as nice as it can be, goes to your mind, to your ego.  But the ego does not know truth, love, or divinity–all that information you have is the program that enslaves you, that stops you from going inwardly.  But you don’t think it does, do you…??  And that is exactly your greatest weakness, your downfall.
The sacred road to self-discovery is the best and the most intelligent one can take in life, because life is all about inner growth, through self-awareness, by watching and realizing the activities of your own ego keeping you from experiencing true love, happiness, the truth in all things. 
But not just self-awareness, which is the easy part; but by serious meditation through focusing on your breath with no-thought; for only meditation can bring you in touch with what lies beyond all that information/all that ego you have.  Meditation shouldn’t make you feel like you cannot do it, for this fear is what keeps you away from ever starting; through meditation you must be patient because your rushing mind must get used to it first.  You practice over and over again; that is how you become a Buddha and achieve a constant state of Illumination–i.e., you do not run away from the demons of boredom and anxiety taunting you and trying to deviate you from deep meditation and from staying on your breath.
 

buddha-and-bodhi
Everything and the most important things, the basic things for a good existence as a human being–i.e., true love, wisdom, peace, harmony, freedom, great understanding–are inside you, not out there–i.e., not in religions, scriptures, governments, family, relationships, group classes of any kind. If you approach all these things without embracing the important things that are discovered inside you, then your life will be a hell, a confusion on true love and happiness, and all sorts of mental demons will cloud your thinking and behaving.

But you persevere, and persevere, and persevere… Don’t be a naive fool and think outer achievements, outer seeking, will make you a better, wiser human being, but meditate as the Buddha under that Bodhi Tree; and during your active day learn from your mistakes, pay attention to all you do to rise as a new being of illumination, as a very god of wisdom and great understanding.

The Habits of The Strong.

1200px-Shukracharya_and_Kacha

One cowardly person came to a master of martial arts and asked to teach him bravery.  The master looked at him and said, “I will teach you only with one condition:  for one month you will have to live in a big city and tell every person that you meet on your way that you are a coward.  You will have to say it loudly, openly and looking straight into the person’s eyes.”
This person got really sad, because this task seemed very scary to him.  For a couple of days he was very sad and thoughtful, but to live with his cowardice was so unbearable that he traveled to the city to accomplish his mission anyway.  At first, when meeting the passers, he quailed, lost his speech and couldn’t contact anyone; but he needed to finish the master’s task, so he began to overcome himself.  When he came up to his first passer to tell about his cowardice, it seemed to him that he would die from fear–he was trembling, anxious, and even feeling some physical pain out of his mental fear.  But then his voice sounded louder and more confident with every passing day.  Suddenly came a moment, when the man caught himself thinking that he wasn’t scared anymore; and the further he continued doing the master’s task, the more convinced he was that the fear was abandoning him for good.
Ashwatthama_with_Vyasa
That way a month had passed.  The once-cowardly person came back to the master, bowed to him and said, “Thank you, master. I finished your task.  Now I’m not afraid anymore.  But how did you know that this strange task will help me…??” 
The wise teacher smiled and said, “The thing is that cowardice is only a habit.  And by doing the things that scare us, we can destroy the stereotypes and come to a conclusion that is actually real of who we truly are.  And now you know that bravery is also a habit.  And if you want to make bravery a part of yourself, you need to move forward into the fear.  Then the fear will go away, and bravery will take its place.”


So, remind yourself always that habits shape who you are as a human being.  As a spiritual being, obviously, you are perfect–strong, determined, wise, confident, talented.  But as a human being only good, thoughtful and serious habits can mold you into this superior human being filled with confidence and bravery to do anything you desire with a good heart.

So, pay attention to what you do from the moment you wake up to the moment you close your eyes to sleep, be disciplined, do what makes your ego uncomfortable, do what is right for your growth and not what you desire on a stupid whim…  Beat your fears.  They are just thoughts…
