Walking in a regular, linear (typical A to B thinking) style will not take you to the quantum world. Going onto old ways and itineraries and using the same old tools that took you nowhere would not be able to take you anywhere or give you new outcomes that you dream about.
The limited mind is the very representation of the old, so you can recognize the influence of the mind by the conservative approaches and actions that try to preserve its status quo. Mind tries to preserve the old ways that insures its ruling over the dormant Self. Therefore if you dream (aspire) about waking up, you have to take a leap of faith into the unknown, into newness. You have to be courageous to embrace the unknown, be wise and patient, pure, humble and crazily letting go of each past moment, ruthlessly slashing unnecessary ties with the old and the darkness.
You have to know that whatever you see is somewhat an illusion because of the limited tools of perception. The senses are very limited compared to the vastness of existence and its infinite expression. The senses only perceive a small fraction of what truly is, so the image, sound and feeling of something is mostly a mind concept, created out of insufficient data collected by the senses, the mind draws the rest of the image according to beliefs and memories of the past which are even more phantasmagoric due to the lack of previous correct perception/interpretation of the past experiences. This knowledge about our impossibility/limitation to see the entire “picture” should humble us down, accepting that the most probable thing is that we don’t know anything, and this is the beginning of true wisdom.
Even in situations in which we believe that we are exposing ourselves to novelty and growth, there might be little or no truth about it. Let’s take for instance the interaction with a Siddha (perfected) being if we are ripe enough to recognize such an encounter. . Although we feel intuitively that the being in front of us is in a different (higher) reality /paradigm then we are, so we intuitively feel that being as in a more advanced state than us, we are still unable to comprehend and to imagine the extent of that difference, similar to a child not being able to truly imagine the complexity of the adult experience and perception that comes with time and maturity. Therefore we will continue to project onto that being our old ideas and perception and judge his/her actions, words and appearance according to our own patterns and faulty (socially imposed) rules that are dictated by the mind(ego), which wants to preserve its reign over the dormant Self and ensure its continuity throughout lifetimes.
The only way we might have a chance to change the linearity into quantum is by accepting, by flowing with life, fully trusting it and without projecting potential outcomes onto it. Each time we project, expect and hope about a certain outcome coming true, we are trying to manipulate life to flow in a certain way that we expect, project or hope, therefore depriving ourselves of what is truly ours to have and experience, just because we are afraid of the unknown and we are unable to trust. This is the very reason for the suffering that everyone is experiencing at this moment.
A perfected being will truly trigger all the falsehood and darkness that we have within and we try to numb, hide and deny that even exists within us. It is so easy to blame the trigger instead of knowing and owning our own shit. After all everything and everyone outside of ourselves are just triggers and pointers to what is already within us. Once something is not within ourselves it is impossible for an external factor to trigger what is not there. It’s like someone coming with a torch inside a cave, but since there’s no wood or other inflammable material inside the cave, there will be no chance of a fire to start.
Therefore we shouldn’t blame external elements as people and situations for what we don’t like, but rather take full responsibility for what we feel/experience and wonder about, and question and realize what’s our input for that situation to take place. Because that is ours and the reason is within, so don’t blame anyone without because it is like blaming the sea for drowning you, when it is your fault that you jumped inside without knowing how to swim.
If we remember that everything that we experience outside is caused by what is within us, then we indeed walk the path of rediscovery, of self-realization. As a small example once we’ve transcended and realized the uselessness of being envious or jealous with someone for whatever reason, no matter what qualities or possessions people will have, they will fail to ignite any jealousy or envy.
A perfected (Siddha) being will be invisible for us in its magnanimous effulgence that he/she has, if we haven’t reached a similar level, because all we will see in that tranquil water (that that being is like) will be our own crap and ignorance being reflected back to us.
I have seen people running away from that type of experience and I did that myself many times. It is truly unbearable for the one not ready to take full responsibility for EVERYTHING, and it is so easy to blame the trigger, to blame the mirror that shows a monster. But the monster is hidden within us and its power lies in its secrecy, in the fact of us being unaware of its whereabouts and its very existence. And that is not a different entity but ourselves, the very animalistic, basic, instinctual, victimized, vengeful, unforgiving, coward, dark and egotistical self that is ruling this paradigm, like some sort of the boss of the end of this level that we are trying to pass, like in computer games.
Once we admit that there might be a monster lurking within, its powers diminish and eventually, by losing the ignorance and knowing that its existence is a fact, that monster transforms into a sweet little puppy, a harmless animal that has a potential to transform both into a rabid, totally uncontrollable wolf, or into a faithful, loving and tamed dog. Both potentialities exist in the same time, but we are aware of the choices and the wisdom will dictate from now on when each of those are to be used.
There’s a risk of people taking charlatans for Siddha (perfected – highly evolved spiritually) beings. Unfortunately there are not many known Siddha beings incarnated at the moment, at least that I am aware of, yet the ones that try to mesmerize the masses by posing as such beautiful beings are many. In reality the capacity to recognize such Beings it is just according to our own vibration. We attract what’s within us. If within its mostly corruption and illusion we will attract someone who is similar, until we realize the lesson of that level and we get a chance to get to the “real deal”. If we’re vibrating in a certain way we will definitely attract similar vibrating beings and experience. But truly evolved beings that came one way or another into our lives are recognized by their vibration as useful trees are recognized by their fruits. From now on that being’s appearance in our lives will trigger an inner fight, the eternal fight between ignorance and knowledge, between good and bad, old and new… All the qualities, the morality, our purity and humbleness will be under severe scrutiny by Life itself. All the props and crutches are going to be destroyed or temporarily deactivated. We are definitely going to show what material we are made of. Since the path is taking us to a whole new level, it will not just going to be given like that to the one who hasn’t earned it before showing their true nature.
Similarly I am sure no one would give a totally new driver a brand new Lamborghini to drive, unless they’ve proven their skills on a lower level car. As such with stepping into a whole new paradigm, one has to prove himself/herself worthy and equipped with the necessary skills to survive the new challenges and vibration.
So if we are really looking for the real let’s forget about complaining and wanting to change anything according to our fickleness of mind, let’s rather develop stoicism, patience and purity and all that is ours will undoubtedly come our way.
