Awakening to Fire

Day 73: The fear and the trap of the mind

Motto: “Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” (The Buddha)

‘I have got to the conclusion that there is a direct connection between the mind and our greatest fears. The mind is the bleak house of all fears, of all traumas. The mind is like a camera that films a scene and then recreates it over and over again, and garners its essence in different scenarios. If you do not master your mind, it will ruin your life, because it will teach you all lies. It will tell you that you are not sufficient; that you are ugly; that nobody can love you; that you are unworthy; that you cannot change! It will say every possible untruth, because it is a mirror that reflects your traumas! The mind has to be trained to mirror something else. You have to break through the veil of the apparent mind, and to get to a place of peace and love that is unshakable! There, you will find your true identity, your true self, which is not a “self”, but pure-consciousness. Then, you can heal yourself, and after healing, you will be able to live your life the way you want, in a powerful and meaningful way! Nobody can set you free, only you can. They are all guides; they are all doctors of the soul, in the sense that they will try to bind your wounds and make your path much easier, but the truth is that only you can heal yourself, both consciously and unconsciously!’

When the end started to begin

‘I was sad. It wasn’t like I didn’t expect it. But it was still so painful, due to the great amount of attachment involved. Can we be totally detached while being involved? No. So, there I was: profoundly attached. But with something that was no longer beneficial. Or, maybe, it had never been beneficial. And I always knew that. And that was the drama.

But when the end reached its apex, I felt a great inner freedom. Despite all pain, all attachment, and all wasted time. It was good that something like that ended, because it was a new beginning. It never really finishes – life. You only jump from one point to another. And, knowing this, you can have the right attitude in front of loss. Knowing this, you don’t drown in despair.

When the end starts to begin, trust whatever is happening to you. The ugliest part of the process is being confused: distrust consumes you inside, like a secret cancer-lump sucking the life out of you! The best thing to do is to maintain your faith: in God, destiny, your own soul. Trust – and things will become clearer in time.

-When the end starts to begin, it’s a sign you have a chance for a better life!

A Deadly Mistake

I.   You have given your crimson-velvety-heart

     to everyone – except yourself.

     You have injected everyone with the sweet-antidote-of-joy,

     But your being.

II.   This elevated heaven of feeling, colours, and strong support

       Existed only as a faraway-fictional-land,

       Only as a deceiving story,

       Not as a concrete-space-of-healing,

       Because you did not heal your own wounded soul.

III.   Yet. Today is a new opportunity

        To envision the world through hoping-lens,

        To change your focus,

        And to commence again.

IV.   As long as you still breathe,

       You are still the director

       Of this fascinating movie call ‘Life’.

       No audience can erase your Unique Signature.

V.   -The last page of Your Script has not been written yet.

      Do you realize how blessed you are?

The Tragedy of Disconnectedness

As humans – we need love, playfulness, and interaction. But this era draws us apart from each other, more and more. Technology was meant to sustain us, and to make our lives easier, but if we analyse the effects of it, we will see its dark side, also: alienation. We are so linked to the Internet, and computers, and virtual world that we feel less the need of others, the need of a powerful qualitative intercommunication. Escapism has become a way of living, but a dangerous one.

We need our personal space and meditation time, but, still, we are not made for loneliness. We need other people; and other people need us. In order to stay human, we must stay united, as only by sharing and receiving love – we can maintain our humanity. Being human is not about having two legs and two arms, but about the level of consciousness, creativity, passion, and compassion that we experience and manifest. We are not hole puppets. We are made for love. And love needs an object that would reflect that back. That is why humans live in societies. That is why humans form families. That is why humans need soul-intimacy.

This concept is so powerful that it requires our full attention. Because every day you are growing towards something. And the question is: “Are you growing towards oneness, love, positive vibes, or, on the contrary, towards segregation, dissension, alienation?” This becoming involves your final outcome: if your life was worth living, or not. You need to do something, in order to honour existence; it is not sufficient to just survive! Who are you, now? What are you becoming?
