Life is love. Love is life. Forget about romance and all labels superficial. Life is the risk of openness, expression of how you feel, a jump with courage all throughout your days.
Don’t live in your mind where everything is analysis, prejudice, and difficulties; but live in and through your heart, where everything is love for life without words. Follow your intuition.
You cannot expect to love, and to be loved, with a mind of prejudice, of analysis, of grudges. Risk losing what you are to find what you need to be.
“Risk losing your mind just to find me“
Love risks everything the mind is,
Love grows everything good,
Love is the fire that keeps us young,
Love inspires all creatures to live.
Where the stars make love to the moons,
Where the womb nurtures the baby-to-be,
Where the flames kiss the currents of air,
You’ll meet me there without more delays.
But leave your feet on the ground, come alone;
Fly towards my burning soul, bare yourself.
This is certainly to love me and to love life,
To risk losing your mind just to find me.
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.
Silence is the deepest language, because through silence we avoid spilling the rushing ego. Silence can connect us deeper than words. Silence at the right moments can have a healing and confident effect for us and for others, because it is words that hurt ourselves or damage others most of the time; so, through silence we are avoiding impatient and upset messages in our words.
Anger, stress, envy, and any form of anxiety can really transform one’s words into knives which cut deep, and this may hurt the relationships in our lives by losing the trust and respect from others, and even the respect we have for ourselves.
The thoughts behind words must be carefully screened, analyzed before we form any ideas with them. “Why am I about to respond this??” “Does this really make sense or am I just tired and angry??” Conscience and reason before any rash words and behaviors.
Being aware of what we say and do must become our everyday living, because if we are to remain positive and build better relationships and better futures then we must be truly authentic, impeccable with our expression.
Our soul, our will to go on in the face of challenges, must be fed by ethics and morals, by integrity in all we think, say and do. This attitude of the better human being makes us whole, healthy, and able to connect with others and with ourselves with full honesty.
All thought and word not based on truth, due to an anxious and stressed mind, must be transmuted by silence; thus, we must not say anything we might regret in the heat of the moment.
Better to wait so the nervousness and the anxiety can leave our minds, to thus later express ourselves better, more poised, with understanding and truth, and without the influence of a busy life.
One of the greatest characteristics in human evolution, the force which built our societies around the world, is the development of language–Spanish, English, Swedish, Russian, Chinese, and the rest. These forms of communication are paramount in the progress of each one of us as peoples, but because of this importance it is crucial also to put good intention and care in what we say; for this communication–either as thinking or as words to others–carries the power to unite us or to separate us. Each word, each thought, either to ourselves or to others, is energy which attracts or repels, which builds or destroys, and which loves or hates. This is where the ego lies. The ego is mind, the content of our powerful minds appearing as thoughts, words and the translation into images of those words.
Human beings are the only ones who have this level of detailed language, this level of intellectual activity. I am sure animals have their language and thus their own form of ego activity, so they can communicate in their own special ways; however, by observation and meditation one can see that animals’ minds do not have this level of ego we possess, their languages are simpler and this is why they have reached their level of evolution–which is also why they feel deeper than us, feel greater intuition, and sense what we as humans ignore, while not having all this mental ego activity as thick veil. Always understand that our communication carries power, and that words can make someone fall in love with you or hate you, words can make you stronger or weaker, words can dictate a better future for you or a worse hell, words can express true feelings of love and devotion or they can spread gossip and lies.
And it is the great energy in words, in our daily communication, the one that carries the power; hence, these vibrations are ways to create–it is what makes us able to be creative geniuses in any aspect we choose, or it is what creates a life of misery and lack of creativity around us and within in us. We may very well call it magic! Because our communication, our words, thoughts, can create and express love, right…?? And what is true love if not magic…?? True love can make a man into a superior being. True love can make a woman bloom like a flower and feel young her whole life. True love can develop a child into an enlightened adult of greater and deeper understanding. True love can give you freedom even if you are chained in a dungeon.
True love is magic; the rest is just entertainment, fantasies created by the ego of man… So communication can be magic if you know how to use it, so stay fully aware of how you use it each day, each moment you breathe…
How do you see language, words, codes, our daily mental and verbal messages to ourselves and to other people…?? Do you actually realize the value and importance in life which words do have…?? What is the purpose of our many languages…?? As a writer I put a lot of analysis and meaning into words, because its usage, after all, is certainly the main medium for communication we have as human beings. Words can either create or destroy, elevate or humiliate, make others feel loved or despised, make others do great things or unspeakable things. Can you see this for yourself…??
Think about it– Hitler made people, which were good and decent people before, hate and kill others. Jesus, Buddha, and other Enlightened Ones, opened minds into love and made people follow their wisdom teachings. Religions nowadays make people’s minds narrow and unable to see reality with their ignorant words. You can either create a great human being or a criminal with words, specially during early childhood when the human brain is absorbing more knowledge from what their parents say.
Creation endowed us with the great capacity for words, for greater communication, for a mighty reason. Our words are powerful and to be used with great responsibility.
Words in your mind. Words aloud to yourself and to others. Great energy they are. White magic, words of love, which builds and elevates yourself and other people. Dark magic, words of all contempt and fear, which destroys and humiliates yourself and other people… So, use them carefully and with responsibility…
“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.” ~ Yehuda Berg; Israeli-American international speaker and author on Kabbalah.
Thoughts, words, intentions, sincere or not, might be important to you, as a reason for hope, as senders of trust, as a message for or from someone you love felt in the moment; however, as I have said it before, all these are conditioned to the past because as soon as you pronounce them or feel them they are gone, up and down just like a roller coaster, and also they are attached to time, to your current moods, feelings.They are not actual experiences, they can mean something today and tomorrow something different, and the day after that they can be gone, forgotten.
The experience, the action based on love, as an apology, is the real thing; therefore; change is now, change is not of time, change is not tied to a word, a desire, a mere intention, change is eternal.
There is always change, moving forward onto better things, as life itself is change, as you bring love into the world by change, as you make others feel loved by your change; for this change says “I love you so much, I care so much, that I change and better myself for all of us; for I truly love myself.”
Change based on love then is what really builds and communicates a deeper connection–in friendship, in family, in marriages, in all relationships. But to change a behavior you must focus with steely determination and rest upon great motivation, become aware of your situation, feel in your heart the need and the want to change for your good and for the good of others. And the secret of change is not to do it solely for others, because if you do then at some point in time you will change back, you will allow your ego to pull you back into what you were before; because this change is superficial and based on fear and not love–fear because you are changing to please others, maybe because you want their love, their attention, popularity, etc. But true change is based on love, self-love; you do it for yourself, because you want to change, because you love yourself and you want to become better for yourself; furthermore, when you do this for yourself is true love because you do not get tired of working to better yourself, it makes you happy, and so it makes others happy.
That is why, in all honesty, if you want to trust, know, love and relate yourself with people, perhaps begin or strengthen a relationship also, always look at their actions, their behavior, as you change your behaviors as well; thus, never fully rely and love a word, a message, however loving and sincere. Trust the truth, which is changed behavior; because changed behavior is an actual display of love. And isn’t true love an action and not merely a word…??
“Apologies are great, but they don’t really change anything. You know what does?: Action.” ~ Stella Young; Australian comedian, journalist and disability rights activist.
Is the word, opinion, judgement, or idea which appears in the mind, the actual experience…?? Does a word have reality which can actually hurt you, or is it a word a form of duality from what is actually happening…?? How can anyone really be free and independent if one does not meditate on this deeply…??
Words are powerful constructs in the mind, mechanical, patterns of conditioning mostly; especially negative words which condemn or judge, because these words analyze experiences as they might go for us, as they might be for us, and not experiences as they really are–i.e., “She will break up with me,” “I won’t be good enough,” “I will faint in front of them,” “I will get sick,” “I am not awakened enough to become that,” and so on and so forth. All thoughts not based on reality.
But all words, negative and positive, are of time, are they not…?? They either describe the past or the future. You are looking at a flower, you see its colors, its form, you feel mystically enthralled by it or not; so, then comes thought, a word or phrase which says “It is a beautiful flower” or “It is a horrible flower.” But as soon as these words come into the mind, you are distancing yourself from the actual experience, the actual Now moment, you are labeling the experience as you wish, you are focused on the words and not on the actual substance which connects you to the flower–namely love, which is pure silence.
Words judge for good or bad, they create a description which is not the actual experience; there is an image of the flower in your mind now, that image attracts you to the flower’s form or it repulses you.
This is how all fear, and its many forms of attachment, is born, by a thought which judges and creates a distance between this same word and the actual experience which does not need words.
But by just observing fear, without judging or naming it, you go beyond it, beyond thought, beyond time itself; consequently, you dwell in this silence of the mind which is beyond thought, and this silence is rich, vital, energizing, dynamic, without judgement of any kind, where there is ABSOLUTE freedom from fear–unlike any concept of freedom the intellect or the ego understands.
“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” ~ Bertrand Russell; British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate.
“Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.” ~ Buddha.
“Be Impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz; Mexican author of Toltec spiritualist and neoshamanistic texts.
Quite often we tend to react emotionally to situations and people, destroying trust and distancing ourselves from clarity; and this happens when the mind is overwhelmed and angered, in conversations or even when we keep anger inside that we cannot contain.
So, that is when the mind explodes and careless words come flying out just like daggers thrust to an opponent in battle; however, as in battle, the greatest warriors are the ones who remain calm, the ones who control their reactions, and the ones who turn mental anger and fogginess into mental strength and poise.
See, the fact that you must be firm and serious in your battle, in your work, in your conversation with another, does not mean you have to be careless and hurtful with your words.
Now, you must understand that when you let your mind explode and you say whatever comes out of your mouth, you are not just hurting others but you are hurting yourself; for in this process you condition your mind, your character, subconsciously perhaps, to be subjected to this poison which runs now throughout your whole system.
You not only destroy your own integrity and peace of mind, but you destroy opportunities and distance yourself from people that now see you as this ego-centered bully; furthermore, your thoughts and words of anger or incomprehension release energy which is negative and attract all sorts of stressing situations into your life.
Your character develops strength based on the control on your reactions and the intentions you carry in thoughts and words.
Be patient, wait to respond or formulate your message, remain clear and do not allow your emotions to cloud your thinking.
“Truth only reveals itself when one gives up all preconceived ideas.” ~ Shoseki; textbook publisher and writer.
I personally experience life as truth. The main reason I started this blog is to help and motivate others to better their own lives, so I am committed to the truth. The first thing of value for me is the truth, which is God, which is the only condition that can really help someone better his own life. I am in this awakening process because of living my life based on truth; I left beliefs and dogmas a long time ago, when I left religion and started my own path.
Most people tend to be superficial and say nice things that the other person wants to hear; the aim for them is not mental elevation and helping with the truth, but the aim seems to be saying something nice to feel good themselves and to be liked by the other person. Popularity.
This is the manifestation of the ego, even though people do not see it; this leads one to distort reality and design a distance between one’s own humanity and truth/God itself. The ego/the illusion expands like this.
Words that are meant to elevate the mind and that emerge from self-love can only inspire and help awaken others, if they are ready to hear the truth, if they have embraced wisdom in themselves. But, of course, the truth you can speak will make jealous and upset all those minds which are unwise and mediocre. Still, you must worry only about the truth, which is in fact God; therefore, if you are wise pay attention now, God is not found in the nonsense of the Bible or Quran, God is found in the absolute truth, because the truth is the only eternal bliss and mental elevation.
The truth is Awakening.
The truth is Enlightenment.
