According to my understanding, true spiritual practice is not about repeating mantras, doing something in a ritualistic way, neither prayers, neither listening to hypnosis or self-hypnosis videos or audios, no binaural beats, no alien neither unicorn nor angel will come to save you. It’s only about hard work with ourselves and our distortions, our past programs and “viruses” that created our personality (ego). It’s a work of undoing rather than doing, unlearning rather than learning. Spirituality is not about readings or predictions, no healing neither removal of karma or obstacles, it’s the embracing of all of these previously mentioned because they are the very propellers of your spiritual evolution, there’s no other way. While we are on the escape mode, the “doors” towards true Spirituality are closed. Only when we understand that whatever baggage we came with we’ll have to exhaust not get rid of it or run away from. Embrace all your challenges, dive deep into the pain and you may get a chance to find out who you truly are, otherwise it’s another wasted life.
Yes, it may be possible to forcefully heal and remove obstacles but we don’t know what is the real pricetag behind it all, plus eventually you will still have to face the same amount of pain and stress otherwise, so eventually we are just delaying the inevitable or even worse postponing it for a later life. Since these troubles are here now, have them now, because you are aware, because you already reached the moment of understanding the whole mechanism. Later on in another life, the situation may be different, with extra karma to face from previous life (this one), with less awareness and maybe tougher external factors.
Instead of laziness and procrastination, instead of being a couch potato with a remote in the hand or some game controller, now it is about noticing our deeply engraved patterns into our very being, working with them, adjusting whatever we see unnecessary and enhancing those necessary. There’s no time to waste now that you realized that you have (again) a chance to evolve, although paradoxically we have all the time, because we are the time ourselves, only we’re unaware of that. On the other hand time is part of the illusion, because in Reality there’s no such a notion. But so far we are subjected to time and we are to respect our time and use it wisely.
Practice awareness at all time, ask yourself what would the old (unaware) self do or say in the actual situation and then ask yourself what can you do or say to improve the old-self contribution and step to a whole new level, creating( better said discovering) a new Self which is acting and talking from the Being rather than being on autopilot(ego + distortions). Notice patterns of victimization (when you feel that life is unfair, people are hurting you…), notice the desire to push people away from you, notice patterns of self-sabotage and act differently. Let people be who they are, the only thing you can do is to watch your own actions and reactions to people or various other stimuli.
Stop believing that everything is about you, stop seeing life in such an obtuse way. Learn to accept that although you are important especially for yourself, life is not spinning around you, you’re definitely not the bellybutton of the Universe. So stop taking things personally even when all the hints and reasoning are pointing toward that idea. If you start realizing that life is a series of things that are supposed to be experienced regardless of your interpretation of them, you might realize that life is neutral and always fair. If you are convinced that life is always fair with us, you will never suffer, you won’t feel like a victim anymore, you will feel like being a part of an amazing movie and you are fully in it with awareness, accepting all the twists and dramatic turns it may have, and receiving everything with an eternal smile in the corner of your mouth.
If we manage to see life as a very correct series of events, due to karma (good and bad) then we are becoming content because no matter what we’re experiencing, we are exhausting our karma be it good or bad and we are slowly removing veil after veil and layer after layer until we are going to find ourselves free, as we always have been devoid of roles, names or attributes, just Ourselves.
If whilst in the middle of drama you remember that you are exhausting past karma, are you still going to feel as bad as you used to feel? If you are sure that everything that happens is correct, can you blame people and stories, when you become aware that they’re just a Divine arrangement for you to exhaust your past mistakes? And know that we are never going to be experiencing more pain than we can handle or more pain than we offered from our end, so hang in there and try not to create some more entanglement (karma) in the process. Forget and forgive self and others. Finally you have a greater chance of success this life just for getting to read this, which for sure is nothing new, you feel it clicking inside and you might have had that “aha” moment. Enjoy the good moments because you earned them and try to enjoy or at least accept those “bad” ones.. Everything is for the best.
We are beings of light, voluntarily immersed in dirt and because of the immersion we identify ourselves with the dirt, yet we are light, tiny particles of light separated from the Primordial Light itself, ignorant of being That so we identify with the physical which is just a temporary experience. Is a piece of golden jewelry less gold just because it felt in the toilet? No! It can be washed and put back to its former beauty. Same with us, we are not our bodies neither our actions. Forgive yourself for whatever you have done previously and know that you did it because of ignorance, step out of your dirt(victimization, guilt, shame and other low vibrational programs), wash yourself from the dirt you have been living in (remove distortions and things less true that you have installed there as ultimate truths), and be born anew, know that there’s no limit to what you can become in this reality. Yes, cleaning yourself up is hard, painful and it requires huge amounts of courage, determination and Grace, but worry not, Grace is definitely with you since you are exposed to this information. And know that out of this experience you are already perfect, already part of That which is Everything and Nothing. Love yourself and everyone else since we are all just particles of the same fabric of the very Universe itself!
