The Heart does not believe,it knows!
The Heart follows no other voice but its own….
It is a chamber of absolute Truth.
The heart allows the freedom of afflictive emotional states and experiences,yet has the resilience to resolve with understanding and compassion.
The Heart takes no part in duality,divisiveness and separation.
It beats in continuous unity with the whole of human and cosmic consciousness.
It cannot hold within its arena the destructive energies of hatred,anger,jealousy,selfishness,greed and maliciousness.
It harbors only innate qualities of wisdom,kindness,selflessness,forgiveness and tenderness.
When the Heart truly breaks,there can only come forth is the flow of Sweet Love!
What are we doing?
Are we so distracted by worldly affairs,we dont notice our own Self,what our soul needs?
Are we so occupied with the frenzy for fun and pursuit of happiness that we forget who we are?
Are we so ensnared by the influence of the world to seek self importance, recognition and gains that we deny to listen to the inner call?
Are we triggered by the restlessness of the ego-centric mind,that we fail to see our own sufferings?
Are we in constant need to escape suffering we dont want to heal and find peace…….
Are we so eveready to blame and not want to take responsibilities for mistakes,that we refuse to forgive and be compassionate…….
Closing the year……………
I like so much the title of this 4th episode of the new TV series Knightfall……it says…….”He who discovers his own self,discovers God”………………..how true!
In a few days, we all will be closing the last day of the present calendar year 2017….some will close it with a big bang,special celebrations to welcome the new year cycle 2018.Some will be alone,some will have some kind of get together and there will be others with a ‘who cares’attitude.In most religious traditions,there will be some sort of service to give thanks for what the year long has brought and to ask for blessings for the new year.
It is good to have any kind of celebratory recall of what we as individuals,community and collectively have experienced in the course of the days of the year………….it is good to reflect on our private and open memories of what has transpired within ourselves and our situation,how we have been affected by others,by our own actions,thoughts and words and how we can help make ourselves better,thus influencing a better growth around us……….we not only see the days of this calendar year but we can check in ourselves anytime and everytime to keep track of awareness of our being,our present state…….there will be recalls of beautiful/lovely things,we have done,seen,said and felt…….we can nourish these memories by loving ourselves for them sincerely,we can witness our capability to be more loving,caring,charitable and kindly in order to harness the goodness we desire around us.
There will also be unhealthy memories we want to suppress,let go,escape from or be afraid to see……………there is no need of fear…….they are of the past and whats more important is the present,we can make changes and start afresh…..we can have the courage to forgive,make amends, heal and find peace,anything is possible…………….when we go into ourselves,we discover there is Only God(Love)!
“unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,it remains alone ….it cannot bear fruit”~~~~~~~~~~~Jesus
In general,society and people are afraid to hear of the word ‘death’! People become superstitious and angry and defensive to hear that word……..death/dying is the ultimate truth of Life…………..Death is truly about giving way/birth to Life…it allows a fulfilling renewed sense of living.Life becomes a miracle and joyous when we are unafraid of death….either the death of the physical body or the death of the ego-centric mind!Again,unless we die to the ego and the restlessness/disturbances of the mind…we will be afraid of physical death!
Every moment of our Present moment is a moment of possibilities………..what deems to be seen as ‘impossible’…can and will become possible!
Like the seedling…which has to overcome the harsh realities of the elements of rain,sun,winds etc in order to bloom and grow……….we too can rise above and transcend each given difficult moment………
“unless a person is Born again…..he/she will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven”~~~~~~~~~~~Jesus
The power of self transformation, the courage and opportunity to die to our ‘old’conditioned,limited,fearful,habituated and grasping/clinging selves….open the path to Life….the road that leads to the kingdom of heaven that Jesus teaches/talks about.And that ‘death’to the unhealthy/suffering self can arise when we acknowledge the part of ourselves that need help,healing and rejuvenation.When we ‘stop’ and take stock to the truth of our inner and outer ways of living….in other words,we watch ourselves….we investigate and inquire within……….we watch our challenges/difficulties playing out…in our minds, in our bodies…..how it affects our moods,our thinking,our emotions,how we react to others and how others are reacting to us…in our speech and our actions……
While we watch ourselves ….instead of running away with resistence(fighting back)and fears(stems from the restless,cluttered and ‘tired’mind)…..we can start practising to become aware and ease into surrendering to change and betterment…to be open to learning how to be humble and simple,truthful with ourselves….thus lessening the pain.When we courageously and willingly surrender(let go) to the unknown…we can empirically experience the miracle of Blessedness!
Thus when we die to the old self in each moment…we can be open to a positive choice to elicit change ,we can create a possible space for strength and courage,we can learn to trust and have faith ,to respect ourselves and our worthiness,we can acknowledge the loving wise power within to guide and provide healing.
We cannot drain all the waters of the ocean into one small cup but when we surrender that cup(ourselves) and instead throw it into the ocean…..we become One with the whole of Consciousness and Divine Intelligence…………………thus all things become possible………………the act of acceptance and living in each moment …………allowing life to BE!
Everything becomes possible when we live in the consciousness of the Present Moment!
“open to the Presence of the Heart”
Compassionate living is to live in awareness that another’s joys and sorrows are yours just the same and the wisdom to share and be present by lending a helping hand whenever possible or simply to open the heart in silent listening and loving-kindness!
