You are already Whole

“The Root Of Suffering Is Attachment”

BUDDHA

Believe it or not, attachment to external things bring’s about one’s own destruction. These attachments form into clusters, which then bind one’s self image to these things. One then believes their worthiness is determined in these matters, and thus judges themselves by how they perform in these external things. The end result being that one never reaches the path of enlightenment, or happiness.

Changing the Code

Often the way we do things in this day and age, is to find a meaning to our life. We go into things or places, hoping to ‘find ourselves’, and although lots of knowledge can be gained by going through this avenue, ultimately it is like sitting on a see saw.

We must aim to rather go into things with the spirit of worthiness. I am doing these things because I AM worthy. I already AM whole, and these things or matters have no say on my ultimate meaning in life.

Forgive yourself

Whatever has happened in the past and however many opportunities you believe you have messed up, it does not matter. This was all meant to be. Those experiences, no matter how trivial they may have been, all were there to teach you what you needed.

Self-abasement is like sneezing on someone who has a flu, in hope of them recovering. We must not beat ourselves up over past or current mistakes.

We must aim to learn and forgive ourselves. This is the only way we can start to take back control.

Love is the answer

We should all aim to operate with true love to nature and to one another, and of course, to ourselves!

When we open up and embody love we will truly be able to such out the zest of life.

We already are whole, we have just forgotten. It is time to remember the lost knowledge and reclaim our birthright as an immortal soul.

The Perpetual Distraction Of This Reality

 

study-distractions

We live in a society with seemingly endless things to do. We begin to do one thing earnestly and make progress towards completing this thing. However, we then suddenly jump ship to something else and leave what we have done as an unfinished article. We then continue this pattern, until we get to a stage where we still have so much to do yet hardly anything done. The issues just keep mounting up. We are doing so much yet we are doing so little. What is going on?

Perpetual Faller

It appears what is going here is that we giving into to every turn of the tide. As soon as something new comes across our path, we latch onto it like a rag doll. We are now at the mercy of these distractions, which, I might add are actually entirely off our own making. They are the results of the repression off internal energies and thoughts. Repression always lead to things coming back ten-fold, and more often than not, this is the reason why we are constantly being dragged into things.

Another part of it procrastination. Things in life are meant to be challenging, and this is what teaches us to grow. However, what happens for a lot of people, is when faced with this difficulty, they switch off. The talents inherent within are shunned and one quickly looks for a route to do something else. This is a real shame, because if we had truly and diligently poured our heart into this difficulty, we would have found the solution.

Perpetual Loser

 

So what happens when we don’t find the solution?

Well its quite clear we end up with a lot of things half done. Our life appears to be a series of fits and farts. Despite starting many ventures, we just never complete them. To make matters worse, things keep piling up and we become overwhelmed. This is when we throw in the towel and the cycle starts all over again.

Something has got to give.

How to be a perpetual WINNER

 

The first step to changing anything, is understanding that there is a problem in the first place. We have to acknowledge that we are stuck in a cycle in life, and make the conscious intention to break it. It won’t be easy, but I guarantee you that it will be worth it.

Step 1 – Remove all sources of distraction

The first thing we need to do is completely cut ourselves away from distractions. Would-be recovering alcoholics, often make it a practice to eliminate all sources of alcohol from the house. Dieters also do something similar, by removing all garbage food from the cupboards and replacing with healthy options.

Simply put, you need to get away to the forest to recover, and allow yourself the time away from these painful distractions

Step 2 – Observe the distraction

Re-introduce yourself to being around these distractions, as the period of cutting away should not be too long, lest you commit escapism. Observe the distractions as they arise, and fully accept it. Do not act on them, just breathe and observe. You will eventually come to realise that you actually have the power to decide over these things, and it is your choice. Completely surrender to it, without acting. Here you will realise your true power.

Step 3 – Realise that this will help you learn

The final stage will be to understand and comprehend the distraction in such a manner, that you can actually use it to aid you. Here the master will love when he encounters a distraction. Although he may fall, he will learn many valuable lessons from this and eventually see distraction for what it is. Neither good nor bad, simply a tool to help with the development of one’s loftier pursuits.

The Way of Empathy

“Blessed is he who prefers his brother over himself”

Baha’ullah

We are caught up in a World where we are always competing with one another. We are caught up in the mode of survival, the life of an animal. We are living in the rat race. Often it does not matter what we do to other people we thinks, as, hey as long as I succeed then its all good right? But is that really the case? Is this really the way live? And more importantly, does this make you happy?

 BahaI-Temple

The Common Path

The path we are designated to go on through to social conditioning we are exposed to is that of competition. Often the quote ‘Dog eat dog’ is prevalent on this physical plain and it is also evident in how many competitions there are (could sports on this planet be said to be all about competition… I think so!). We are always aiming to get to the top and society is a like a pyramid, similar to the food chain. Yes, correct, we are on top of the food chain, but this does not mean we will be here forever, and more importantly, does not mean we should be trying to get in front of our fellow human beings.

As a matter of fact maybe we should encourage others to succeed before ourselves?

The Blessing

When you truly care for others you suddenly realize how all of your burdens appear ever so light. Better yet truly understanding, caring and helping others, I believe, is the way to live on this planet. Similar to how a branch, when cut off from a tree, ceases to be part of it any longer, so we, when we become selfish and self-centered, cut ourselves off from, everyone else, which means we cut ourselves of from OURSELVES.

True salvation is helping others and becoming one with them; after all we are all part of the same experience.

Try it out for a week, a month, a year, I guarantee you will never look back!

The Power of Doing Things You Hate

Mediocrity leads to an unfulfilled life. If we dare to get out of our comfort zone and try things which are difficult and uncomfortable, we could find ourselves looking back on these crucial moments as those which changed the course of our destiny.

Difficulty

We all want to grow in life and become the best version of ourselves. But ask yourself for a second, how many people actually do this? How many people actually learn, grow and create new opportunities?

The sad thing is that not many do. A lot of times when we see difficulty or something which feels uncomfortable, we run as fast as we can away from it. It doesn’t feel right, and it makes one feel nervous. We fear failure, and lots of things go through our minds. The end result? We decline and walk away from the situation.

We have just missed out on a great occasion, something which could have answered the questions we currently hold.

However, if we were to change our mind-set towards this; if we were to dive into this difficulty, how much could one really learn and achieve?

It could be the start of something special…

Challenges

Dive in

My message to you in this short article is clear.

Dive in, go forth and boldly face the difficulty in front of you, if in doubt, do it!

Often when going into these endeavours, you will feel uncomfortable, everthing will be telling you to collapse and go back to your inner cave.

But do not.

Throw yourself of the edge of the mountain.

That’s the only way you’ll learn how to fly.

The Attitude of Gratitude

“Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the universe”

Neale Donald Walsh

Look around you, look very close, you will begin to see that in today’s society many people are not grateful for what they have, as a matter of fact they behave in a totally opposite way. We live in a society where many people are complaining about their life and circumstances. A way out of this, offered by the elite is to keep attempting to make one self better, through the possession of materialistic items, however, this does not satisfy us. It actually makes us want more and thereby not appreciate what we currently have. We live in a World where a lot of us (me included) are never truly grateful for the miracle of life, and for the fact we are alive… right here, right now.

life is great

Why / How is Gratitude so powerful?!

Employing gratitude is an EXTREMELY powerful process. When you stop, reflect on life and be truly grateful for what you have your life will begin to change. You will genuinely be happy. Gone will be the days of claiming to be a happy once a future goal is reached, you can choose to be happy NOW.

Gratitude is the key to happiness. Daily practice of gratitude can ironically allow you to reach your goals faster. Ever heard the saying ‘fake it till you make it’? Well this is similar to gratitude, be happy now, be grateful now, feel how you would in your ideal life now, and guess what? One of the most important steps towards your goal is achieved. Be grateful for the flowers outside, your family helping you out, a stranger giving you way in traffic, and even for the food on your plate. Some of the most happiest people are those with nothing at all to their name. They have nothing, yet somehow, have everything.

How to practice gratitude

Practising gratitude is a very simple process and need not be complicated, however, there are many different ways to practice gratitude. Here are some of my favourites.

  • Gratitude Journal – Every day, find three new things to be grateful about and write them down in as much detail as possible. Whenever feeling ungrateful, simply refer back to your gratitude journal.

    Here are some examples
  • Speak gratitude into existence – As you go about your day, attempt to notice as many things to be grateful for as possible. When you see something, marvel at it, do not judge it, simply be grateful for its beauty, and say it out loud.

    How beautiful
  • Give more thanks – Saying thank you is one, if not the most powerful form of gratitude you can employ. Say thank you for everything. For your life, for the postman delivering you valuable letters, your mother for her home-cooked foods. Say thank you more, and you will receive more.

I am

Lastly, attempt to always see life with the attitude of gratitude. Be genuinely grateful, and you will be happy, I guarantee it.
