Hope, the biggest trap! 

I am sure that the majority of you reading this article are going to scratch your heads in disbelief. So I will try to explain my perspective. 

When we hope that something is going to happen in a certain way or the outcome of our actions is going to be the one that we want, we pave the way to diving deeper into the illusion and into misery. 

Before taking birth into this life we’ve seen the things that we are supposed to experience and we agreed with them, believing that it will be like a walk in the park. Unfortunately the problem is that when the soul is not being bound to any physical vehicle (body) we can’t realize how much the pain would be felt in the body, how overwhelmed we might become by emotional pain and traumas, and we’re also unaware of how addictive is everything in this experience. Besides being out of the body means a certain higher level of freedom and a clearer vision of the world and the game that we are about to enter. Most of us fail over and over, because of hope doubled by ignorance. We are just unable to accept things the way they are. We are unable to realize that whatever happens is correct for us and there’s a big realization behind any trauma and “bad” or unpleasant event. I know this myself, yet it’s so hard to break free out of this extremely well-built game we’re living in. 

Hope is the very desire to control, to manipulate life events towards a desired outcome. But what if being in this game with almost no awareness about who we truly are, and what is the purpose of us being here is impossible to grasp? What if surrendering to life and its flow is all we can do? It’s scary, because people are afraid, afraid of the unknown, afraid of events that will shake their lives. But if you are ready to go whatever way life comes, with a smile on your face, then you are definitely on the right track.

Hope is emphasized over and over again by mass-media, and the society in general. It is the warden of our invisible walls jail that we’re inhabiting. Hope is our very strong will and imposition onto ourselves. “I hope that I will get that job”, “I hope that my wife will love me forever “… The silly thing is that we are attached to things and people and by hoping, praying for something to happen we are influencing the outcome of life how it was planned before incarnating this time and we are missing the point hundreds and thousands of lives. 

“I hope that I will get that nice job” . Maybe it’s a dead-end for you, maybe it’s some warm unnecessary stop from the evolution. Maybe by concentrating our creative energy towards achieving that goal we’re missing something better. 

“I hope that my wife and I will be forever together”. 

We are just trying to stop the time and it’s just a laughable idea. What if you don’t project any willpower, you are happy with the wife you are having, yet you are not dependent and you accept that nothing lasts forever and you are surrendering to life and the events that you chose to experience. I am not advocating lacking of vision or promiscuity,.. The things that I am talking about are subtle, they’re happening under the gross aspect of life, so we can enjoy life and its beauty, but recommended not to attach to anything due to the continuously changing characteristic of life.

 We are powerful(without knowing it) and this is the downfall in the illusion, because we are trying to manipulate the game to achieve some minor comfort and we forget that our plan was to experience and expand our limited perspective about life. By praying or hoping towards achieving something, we are lost, we wasted another life and it will happen so until we relax and accept the ride (life) as it comes, without hopes or desire to manipulate events or the outcomes. 

Now there’s this coronavirus fear all over. This makes us automatically infected by hope. We hope that we are not going to catch the virus, or if we catch it we hope that we won’t die,.. The illusion is getting stronger and stronger in its grip by hope. Accept the “reality” as it is, but employ your maximum awareness and flow in life with awareness. If so, you will always know what to do in a certain situation, you will know if and what to do, if and what to say. Just accept this ever-changing nature of life and your existential drama will fail to shake you.

 Hope carries with it desire for a better life, better future, preservation of what we have.. Again attachment. By not being able to fully accept what we’re going through and what we are experiencing at the moment, we are blocking the possibility towards extracting the right essence, the right knowledge out of the situation so we are doomed to repeat the process in this life or the next until the lesson is learned and the true knowledge is extracted and imprinted into our beings. 

Give up hope and build inside yourself acceptance towards whatever life brings and once in many thousands of lives we will start realizing our being and the purpose of our existence in here. 

Dream in a dream

This world is a play of mirrors, everything and everyone reflects us and our own power of creation.

The whole world is just a play of our own mind, a dreamlike creation of people, things and events that are happening only in our mind, the whole existence is happening in a tiny spec of dust. The trick is that we become slaves of our own dreams and even if we grasp the information that it might be a dream we don’t really want to wake up from it, it’s too cozy, to comfortable to let “the script” rule us instead of waking up and taking full responsibility for own creation and if we dislike it, we can always change it. But no, it’s way easier to be victims of the dream.. “Oh no, we’re living in a nightmare”, well, you can always wake up and change the dream.

It happens many times when we are dreaming something and we wake up and we go to toilet and when we go back we feel like it may be amazing to go back to the same dream. We’ve all been there. But how about now? Are you ready to wake up from one dream and to realize that you are in another dream again? Probably the depth of these Matroska doll realities is not yet graspable to us, yet waking up from one dream makes the previous dream look more real, so if we are able to realize that which is almost not verbalizable, then we grow more and more, heading to our true intelligence which is all-knowing , all-pervasive.. But for that we have to transcend the mind of this dream, in order to discover the “reality” behind it. Overly intelligent people will fail to realize it this life if they are too attached to the logical linear way of thinking. Because their highly esteemed intelligence has reached a very rigid state, where in order for it to evolve, it has to break through the misconceptions, and many of those information that they were so proud are very inappropriate for the quantum level they are about to step into. The majority are unable to let go of it, they cling to it and hope that what is written here might not be right, because it’s so hard to let go of projects and desires, so hard to accept what we all have by the confirmation from our intuition.
The same happens when we wake up from a wonderful dream and we feel like going back to sleep so we can experience it more. We are just addicts and this is what keeps us clinging to this pseudo reality. That’s the very reason why all the ancient scriptures are emphasizing over and over again the “non-attachment”, lack of desire to control, and renunciation… But you see it’s so easy to mistake the information, people are going to isolate themselves as many millions tried already yet to no avail. The true renunciation, detachment and flowing with life has to be in the given circumstances of life, without running away from them, without isolating ourselves, actually embracing the challenges instead of running away from anything. The true renunciation is when you still eat, still work, still having sexual intercourse, and so on,.. But all these come from the inner contentment, and surrender to life flow, not from the addiction, not from obsession, lust, or neediness… It’s all just a flow, and each thing that happens it’s just neutral for that advanced being, it fails to bound him/her. And it fails because there’s total unobstructed flow of being in that existence.

Our surroundings are reflecting our inner turmoil. The beings that we come in contact with as long as they create a response in us are the reflection of the inner instability and lack of balance. Accept everything as it comes, be wise, realizing that there’s more to learn out of an uncomfortable situation rather than some pleasant event. Anyways life is alternating them so no need to attach or crave for neither of them. Eventually we are supposed to become neutral even whilst experiencing “good” events.

Smile and let all the thoughts disappear, like clouds disappear in the summer sky and realize that that is the perfect moment, regardless of where you are, regardless of what’s your status or any other thing that might bother you. If you manage to see a glimpse of that eternal existing inner-happiness, then you know what you are, everything else is a dreamlike illusion.

Perceiving life as it is

We, people are so ignorant about everything. We are perceiving everything through a very tiny opening through which we peek into the so called reality, yet we are literally unable to grasp the existence. So we are prone to misinterpret continuously the reality we’re living in by projecting old beliefs and understanding from past experiences into the present, so that the present is not at all “present” but some new experience with “past” flavors. Hence, the evolution is getting more and more limited as time goes by, that being the very reason why we perish.

Let’s take a look at our problems and things that we are not so happy about. It seems like we are in deep trouble, yet if we take a moment to contemplate about it, we might be surprised to find out that more than half of the planet’s population have worse experiences, and yet they might take it easier. 

It is all about the inner perception about the world. So 2 people experiencing same experience will always feel it and interpret it in different ways. 

I found something on the internet that said: “I was sad that I didn’t have shoes until I met a person without legs.” So it’s all about the way we perceive life and mostly we perceive life not only through past distortions and experiences but through comparison with others. Eventually we are living a terrible experience just because of our expectations and hopes. We are just unable to accept whatever comes our way with calm and taking everything as a new opportunity of inner growth and experience. 

We are doomed, just because we are dreaming about pleasure and happiness. Because we are slaves to the senses, we are continuously looking for ways to entertain and “enjoy”, yet true enjoyment is in each moment of “Now”, each moment carries embedded the inner contentment, or the happiness that we are foolishly looking for outside. We are already there. Even in the moment of distress, if we manage to look at the things far from above, like watching a movie, we will realize that there’s nothing so tragic, nothing so traumatic. It’s just life, and the more there’s struggle, the more we are pushed by life towards understanding what life is about. 

True spirituality is in the conscious experience of each moment of NOW, perceiving the most traumatic and the most pleasurable alike, as pure neutrality. Know that life is a continuous roller-coaster, a perpetual up and down cycle which we can’t stop or control. The only thing that we can change is ourselves and our wrong perception about life, a perception from the victimized and /or entitlement point of view. 

Feel life deep inside yourself because there’s nothing outside of us which is not already existing inside. Flow with life, embrace challenges! Let your existence become a flow of your Being and the veils hiding Yourself from yourself will slowly vanish. 

What it takes to evolve

The real secret about life is extremely simple, yet so hard to be grasped by the great majority.

The secret is our behavior. Yes, scratch your heads as much as you want but it’s just that. The secret to our evolution is “ignoring” with grace what others are doing or saying no matter how atrocious it may be… We just have mind our actions and reactions. It’s such a mind-blowing element in its own simplicity, but it is just that. The others are just triggers and tools for our true unfolding of the Self. 

Imagine that you are a fish in a aquarium, swimming freely along with other fish. Is the fish aware of the outside world? Can he be fully aware of the fact that his life is being watched since he was a tiny little egg then as a tiny fish and now a fully grown fish? Can he be aware of the fact that each left or right turn is attently monitored and noted? Can he realize in its simplicity how limited he is, yet is he able to make real moral choices in the most weird and twisted situations? This is the very exit from the limited being towards something greater, this is the very tiny door towards the evolution from an instinctual animal towards something great, beyond human nature which is animal-like anyway.

And yes, it may seem at moments that some people hate us, some are lying and inventing about us, but our reaction to it it is all that matters. 

It is beyond hard, it’s of a non-human way to comprehend and to act naturally like you forgive and understand everyone with a motherlike attitude, but this, is the very root of the actual evolution, whatever else is minor, is bullshit. Whatever else is just dreaming, inventing and fantasizing. But you see, this is very hard, because no one can fake being moral and non-violent, nobody can fake having a good and kind heart, they can try to replicate, but the Life itself will push the tests to such a degree that the fake ones will always lose it, they’ll always let their true nature come to surface. 

Once I received an advice which I wish I will always remember, because in the advice there’s the whole world compressed: “If you sink, sink graciously.” What was the message? If you are going down, don’t pull others, just learn to accept defeat graciously and then victory may be around the corner. No place for vengeance, no place for punishing those who are doing wrong things to us.

 Many did reprehensible things being “righteous”, because righteousness is just an illusion, even is we are “right” . Righteousness is the “key” to losing oneself and the dear ones, is the key to lose the battle with your lower nature.

Want to evolve spiritually? Are you ready to be helpless with seeming that there’s one to care for you? Are you ready to see the “truth” that everyone may desert you, blame and accuse you? (although it may be just an illusion or an imposed feeling). Are you ready to be publicly or privately humiliated to the degree that you feel like dying? Are you ready to see all your loved ones hating you? Are you also ready to see old friends looking at you like you have the plague? It’s not really necessary to be like that yet it might happen. Are you ready to be a good person and stick with the good manners and good, healthy thinking about everything even when everything may be looking like is against you?

Are you ready to see that people that you were putting up on a pedestal are still people and they may even look now underdeveloped, just to test you and your faith even more? They may even be unawares of being played by Life against you, but it’s just a game, where either you win it, by winning your dark side or you are “righteous” and you allow yourself to blame, accuse, hurt and curse others, like you did over and over again throughout past lives. The things are twisted, after losing such a test, life can become good, so that we may misinterpret it,..

What is certain is that all the people that are evolved spiritually, have gone beyond primeval instinctual living, and they have been tested by the Higher Self lives and lives. They were suffering tremendously, unbearable things yet they managed to be moral and kept the right path regardless of their dramas. Are you able to do it? Or you are just one of the many who are just dreaming about superpowers and gaining control over matter yet runs away from the responsibility for own actions, reactions and things you say?

True Power comes to the Real Master, the master of own life, of own decisions. True Power is self intelligent impossible to trick or lie to. True Power tests the aspirant. And know many, so many are just doomed to fail,…Be one of the few, one of those who stay calm without analyzing without judging, understanding the temporary nature of the world and staying inside, unmovable minding only own actions and reactions. 

Are you ready to face it all?? And if so, what’s your motivation? It happened in the past that Power was given as the final test to many, but oh, they misused it and they may be still facing the consequences. You see, it’s not that someone is denying us the power, is that The Power itself is trying to protect us from premature exposure which may destroy us. My advice to myself and all of you readers is to really make sure that you are ready to face unimaginable trials and make sure that you are dedicated to improving your actions and reactions to whichever stimuli. Because true spiritual evolution goes through hell and back and makes us feel like living in a hellish realm. 

Be aware that people who helped you big time and who you put great trust into, may be part of your test, they may all of the sudden look like low, like you wasted time and effort, but deep inside your heart lies the truth, don’t rationalize, because the mind will try to delude you, use intuitive sense and surrender to the Higher Power, ask for clarity, don’t expect immediate effect neither answers, just keep an open mind and stay simple and don’t allow your mind to wonder, because it may trick you, just give it time(to the issues you’re having) and whatever is fake fades in time, but what is true will shine eventually and can’t be hidden for long from the real seeker.

I wish that we all have clarity in all of our endeavors and may higher moral be always the guide into whatever action you enterprise. If you feel that you are not ready to face the dirt, don’t start any spiritual quest because many projected easiness onto it and although it may look easy for those who achieved it, for those struggling to get there it’s but invisible and untouchable goal until the moment you close your eyes and surrender to your Higher Self and your Guidance and take The Leap of Faith. Sounds easy, but it’s almost impossible. It takes tremendous dedication, selflessness, patience, resilience, effort but most of all Trust. So I wish that there are many of you readers who may benefit at some point of this information, because one day, when the time is right You will remember it.

In the moments of distress you might forget or discard this information, probably because we are too burdened by life’s vortex or maybe we are not allowed to have any advantage, so I suggest that you just develop detached love towards all that is alive or existing in the illusion and developing high moral values and be ready to surrender and feel beaten up and disappointed, but the good thing is that it won’t last long and your memories are going to be coming back and you will be able to remember this information and to assess your progress. Don’t be hard on yourself if you are failing over and over again, if only one time you manage to do it, to overcome your animal, then you passed to the Big League. 

My well wishes to all of you.

The middle point, where there is stillness

How many times have I been there?! Knowing what I have to do or say, I was happy to get a glimpse of the Immortal Knowledge through my own realizations, yet the ego and mind eventually tricked me, once again, into forgetfulness. I have no doubt that everything is known in my core, yet the ego occults the Truth, along with the limited mind’s giving of reasons and logical explanations to this and that and the avoidance of the right “path”. Oh, what a waste of time! since the righteousness is the very root of ignorance and there are no “better tools” to use to help one lose one’s soul than ignorance and righteousness. Each are born of the other.

Since everything is but illusion, is there anything to be righteous about? Since everything is but creation of the mind (like a dream), is there anything to run for, to crave? Are we able to take an object back from our dreams into the so-called “reality”? Then how can we fall prey to greed? Everything is but a dream. Is there any benefit in cheating people or in mistreating them even for the most “righteous”of reasons?


Even so, it’s extremely difficult to apply what we read and understand into our lives, since it goes against everything that we have ever known.

Many times, we think that we’ve changed, that we’ve improved… It’s just another trick of the ego. Real change is sometimes mind-blowing; it’s a giant leap out of the plain, tridimensional world that we “see”, and into the quantum world. Yet first the change may so gradual and looking like we are not evolving at all, but by looking back at how we used to be, we realize that we are no longer the same, that we are aware, we KNOW, we are not acting upon the reactions, upon the old programs the way we used to. Slowly slowly we are realizing who we are and what is the point of all of this.

Real change comes by Grace, along with huge amounts of courage to go against everything that we’ve stood by our entire lives (which is no longer suitable). Actually, lives upon lifetimes we have wasted in perpetually “missing the point”. But now, it is time to gather all the pain and become immersed in it fully with the joy of knowing that I am doing the right thing – what I had avoided for eons. And that pain, devoid of explanation, emotion and any righteousness or guilt, creates the shift that I couldn’t possibly have dreamt of before. The same pain that had bound me before, if experienced with full awareness and attention, will open my eyes ever more and oh! when I “open” my eyes I realize that everything is worthless. Everything that is dual is just a smart way to bind me to even more affectations of illusion. Remove yourself from the “dream”! Stop creating a meaning for the illusion, or the illusion will devour you as it has done, over and over again, in our past existences. I do everything dispassionately, regardless of the results because passion is no longer for the “I”. When there is no “I”or “mine” or “me” there is Being. And when I do, I do as the Being – Awareness. In removing expectations and hopes, the sorrow will be one with joy, neither Ying nor Yang, but an incorporation of them all.

I cannot entertain thoughts or emotions, because I am beyond those, like the butterfly that is above the caterpillar. But, when I entertain them, although I am already the butterfly, I see myself (and am seen by others) as a maggot. By giving into instincts and entertaining lower thoughts, the Divinity is blocked since That (the Absolute) is the untouched – pure Blissful Being – Existence.

I entertain only the ideas that benefit me the most. I remember that there’s no good or bad choice, only my choice, that I can change when I dislike the fruits of such choice.

Whatever is already lost and gone, I don’t waste my tears on since that loss had a reason. The reason was to wake me up. In learning the lesson, new opportunities emerge since once we stop being the victims of illusion, whilst still in it, it can only serve us.

Be aware of both polarities since they are both as wrong as they can be. The violin teacher said to the child, “You see, my dear, the secret lies in the middle, since if you tighten the strings too much, they are going to snap, or if they are left too loose, the sound may be improper or missing.” So the teaching can only happen on the middle path where there is no exaggeration or extreme. Like a pendulum which is still, immovable in the 0 point.

May the Grace that gave me these realizations be the driving force of our further evolution, and may it pull us out of self-created misery.

It’s something that I have been searching for my whole life, but only now am I ready to receive it, so here it is, self-manifested, exactly in the right moment.

The “Out of the box” realm

We are scared when one exposes the way life functions and doesn’t promise anything, knowing the unpredictability of life, not knowing that maybe that’s our best chance to be on the path of truth and surrender to what life has for us.

We are mostly afraid to step out of the box, to make decisions that may throw us into life, we are lacking the courage to make steps that might take us onto the path of discovering ourselves and the truth about this “reality”. We are very “conservative”. We like to preserve old beliefs which look safer, which are keeping our understanding (the misconception?) of the world together. Because we know that if we choose to step out of the box, there’s a lot of responsibility, a lot of work with one self and not so many people nowadays are even ready to accept that things might be this way.

It’s so easy to go to the old self, the old patterns of behavior.. So easy because it’s something we know, something familiar. It’s the very Stockholm syndrome manifested in our lives, captive in the hands of self-imposed fear and the ego. It’s a decision to fall for laziness and “comfort” since the other choice implies disillusionment; waking up realizing that we know nothing; implies accepting things that we prefer to pretend that are inexistent. That doesn’t mean that stepping outside is only bad, or there’s no comfort. On the contrary, it may become smoother and better with time, because after the negative is failing to deviate us from the path of self-discovery, the positive current is taking over, one of the last trick of the illusion to keep us captive. 

There’s always a risk on this path, the risk of returning to the old self. I still risk going back sometimes to that “safe zone” which is the forgetfulness of the soul. It is a constant struggle, a battle of our Higher Self and the old self, a battle in which the prize is either remembrance of who and what we are, or the sweet forgetfulness. It is exactly like in the first movie of Matrix when the traitor from Neo’s crew chose to betray his team and live in a fantasy world knowing that everything was experiencing was just fake, yet it was so appealing to him and the reality was so cruel so full of responsibility and work. Same with us, we are constantly exposed to the right information yet we are very afraid, we want to stay longer in the sweet and warm pool of oblivion, because we know that outside might be chilling, might be work that we have to do, might be that our entire system of values will be turned upside down and I get it, it’s a very hard perspective to face for those who are not ready.

I have been there. I delayed 20 years my “stepping out of the box” because I wanted to explore the illusion, to dive deep into it, and almost got consumed by it. Probably it wasn’t the time at that point so I don’t go back trying to blame myself that I should have started earlier, how I may be tempted to do. 

I know your doubts and your fears because you are me. I had them. I still have some, yet much less than previously. I am still caught off-guard, but I blocked myself outside of the box, knowing that there was a risk of going back in moments of weakness. So I drew a line under which I am unable to go anymore, I can’t go under a certain level and I am very grateful for the Grace that is with me in form of dear friends and Beings in my life,and in the form of books and information that I come across, that enforces and reinforces the already existing decision.

People and things are coming and going with huge speed in our lives, once “out of the box”, we should realize the futility of clinging or hoping, controlling or pushing a certain agenda onto anyone… We have to respect their choices and wish them all the best.

Be the “out of the box” being and you will be one of the very few who are doing it. By doing this courageous move, you will inspire others, without preaching without teaching, just by automatically spreading this beautiful scent of freedom through your very existence.

Fighting for likes and the door to the next level

Nowadays system of creating addicts out of everyone, is based on the era of the electronic games in which one tries go to the next level. It’s the main motive the growing number of sexual perversion in the world . That’s why they invent new ways of satisfying their fetishism, and on the path for next level, sometimes reaching sickness level, not knowing when to stop. It may work for games but in real life this program transforms people in addicts who’s next dose must be higher, better or newer. That’s why they’re unable to be with only one woman/man because this sickness is spreading throughout all the levels of their lives, starting to confuse the world with a computer game, so the approach becomes similar.
The happiness that people dream about achieving one day, is no longer reachable since we raise the level of expectations continuously. We dream about having the latest gadget, and as soon as we have it we forget the struggle and desire that made us fight for, and want that thing so much, and we create a new object of desire. We start also continuously projecting our happiness onto the next thing, being unable to stay in the present moment and enjoying what we are already having.
Sometimes there’s no next level, stop right there, look around and realize that you’re happy already, you have more than one needs, you are alive! Count your blessings, remember to thank Life, the Universe, the Highest Power, whoever you want or believe in, for what you are having. A grateful approach is the key for experiencing blissful being in whichever situation.
The right approach to losing the addictive behavior and violence, is to say to oneself that we have to become like a loving mother in the approach towards everyone, still offering love and healthy boundaries in the same time.
A mother will never attack the child and whatever punishment or denial of things towards the child, they are for his own sake.
Social media is creating sickness and unnatural order through the apparatus of likes, share, and comments.
Many people nowadays are addicted to the social media and to likes“. They’re unrelentingly searching for a way of getting likes for their pictures and posts, sacrificing erratically their privacy for this shot of endorphines, which “likes” give them for the time being. It has been proven that like the drugs, these responses are creating a release of a cocktail made of dopamine, serotonin, endorphin and oxytocin, all of which are creating a state of temporary happiness“. This is, like the gaming addiction, already creating new ways to perceive the life in a very distorted and unnatural way. People start seeing the life in the same manner, becoming dependent on the other individuals likes and becoming depressed or aggressive when the other people are manifesting their dislike or disapproval towards them. We may become easy to manipulate, because people can dissimulate liking us in order to control us. It’s pure chemistry, so it happens to some degree on an unconscious level. So don’t be harsh on yourself if you are under this effect, because we all created this link between the release of the chemicals creating the feeling of happiness, by enjoying social media. It takes a lot of courage and awareness to be able to let go of games and social media. Facebook became the most popular because they use this psychological warfare tactics to the maximum, offering both the games and the like receiving system in the same time.
Oscar Wilde said:
You will continue to be unhappy as long as you think that your happiness depends on someone else.”
So start learning to enjoy both, criticism and like. Learn to be yourself regardless of people’s opinions about you, and start enjoying being on your own, having moments with yourself, knowing that you have to be content and happy for the fact that you are already perfect. You don’t need any object nor activity to be that. Start to make your own decisions unrelated to what advertising you see, what popular posts on Facebook say or whatever other manipulative techniques are out there.
Good luck!
