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.

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.

Is there such thing as “truth”?

Everything is true. Every single bit of information is in the same time true and not true at all. There are different levels in which each information becomes true or false. For different individuals the same information can be false and true, but the individuals are on different levels of perception of the world/ reality (illusion).

As an example we can take the diet wars.. Vegans versus meat eaters, advocates of vegetarianism against ketogenic diet ones. They are all right, according to the purpose of the diet, the level of knowledge and the level of evolution: there are several angles to look at a situation. The smaller the number of angles from which we see something the more limited the truth is. The ketogenic diet can show some weight loss features, yet if we are unaware of the rest of the implications like the energetic lowering of the vibration of eating only animal flesh it is highly detrimental. Even on the physical level the toxins, hormones(that were previously injected in the living animal), antibiotics aside from the hormones of stress (cortisol) that are released in enormous amounts into that poor animals blood when killed. How about the lack of vitamins and other phytonutrients which are lacking in such a diet just to name few of the risks and negative implications of this type of lifestyle or diet. So the truth of the ketogenic (or Atkins diet) adepts is a limited, ignorant type of truth as the truth of many people who consider themselves knowledgeable just because they acquired some bookish, predigested knowledge. Yet it’s true to a certain extent. We are all knowledgeable and we are all ignorant.

Those who think that know much are the most ignorant of all. It may sound crazy, but more the people get a chance to access the true knowledge (a higher level of truth than the previous one), more humble they become. By realizing how many times the new level of truth totally changed the paradigm, and shifted their system of reference, their perception about life, its purpose and the world in general, they become more aware and humble, realizing that the next level of truth might again twist their perception and whatever may seem now as being undeniably true might become eventually obsolete and laughable.

Keep an open mind, let yourself explore the most unbelievable of the hypothesis of the information you may come across. The true ignorant denies the other person’s “truth”. The knowledgeable accepts the idea that everything might be correct at their own level for each of the individuals, in their own self-created illusion. How can it be that out of 2 illusionary worlds one is less illusion than the other? In the end even if there can be a gradation (one may be more fantastic than the other), they’re both fictitious. By realizing that, we realize that although we coexist with others, the evolution is very individual and it can’t be taught or teached unless that receiver is open to accept the new level of truth and the time is right. If the time is not yet right we can swim in the right knowledge, we can be forcefully-fed “the ultimate truth”, but we will be blind and deaf to it. And all these I experienced myself: I got a chance to find out good information some time ago but since I wasn’t yet ripe, or let’s say that the time wasn’t yet right, the information that I stumbled across failed to create any ripples in my waters and I am sure I am still experiencing the blindness regarding the next level of truth that I am not yet ready to find out.

Coming back to the diet example, according to my understanding, people evolving realize that eliminating animal flesh from their lives is beneficial (and according to my assumption, mandatory for being able to perceive further levels of consciousness/ perception) for a future, more advanced state.

I have experienced in my own path both polarities, I have been bouncing back and forth from good to bad and back again and I still do, from cold to hot, white and black. I want to emphasize it once again: the secret lays in between, the 0 point, the point of balance between the extremes, the point of singularity, when duality may be still there (while we’re still in the body), yet one becomes unaffected by the positive or negative currents through volition and Grace. It’s hard, almost impossible. But if one has a vision to evolve out of its self-imposed limitations, then the whole paradigm shifts and what for the majority is impossible, for the determined person “the impossible” starts fading and the truth starts unveiling itself.

Everything in due time

Everything comes in due time! There’s no bigger truth then that. You can try, you can run, you can pay or you can try to bribe, to force something to come to you, yet unless is the right time, that thing will stubbornly refuse you. Indeed you can be prepared, you can have a higher Vision which you need to pursue, but until the right time is there nothing much will happen. That’s why there is nowhere to rush, nothing to be afraid or worried about because whatever it is to be experienced you will definitely experience. And the only thing that you can do is surrender yourself to the flow of life. Life will never take you on the path that you think is going to take you, and if you hope for calm waters and a smooth path, life will give exactly the opposite, and not because it wants to disappoint you but because you are unable to see what’s the best for you. That’s why you sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. It can be really bumpy at points yet don’t worry, the bumpier the road is, the more are the chances of you evolving. And on this path according to my experience, whenever you feel the lowest you should know that the ego is living its last days of being in charge, the ego is not going to die, to be removed nor annihilated but kept at bay. Because the ego feels that its days of ruling over you are coming to an end. And now it’s trying its best to bring all the heavy artillery, all the victimisation and past pains that weren’t transcended because its power is vanishing, because the true self is getting stronger and stronger. So whoever is managing to go over to The Dark Night of the soul which is nothing but a play of ego, whoever is sturdy enough, and dedicated to the highest power and The Guru, having unshaken faith in them and in own higher nature, that being will definitely be awaken. But remember don’t rush anywhere but purify yourself daily through rejecting thoughts and emotions and stay sturdy and humble cultivating spiritual morale and not even the sky will be the limit.

Are we aware in our personal life?

Can you love everyone just for existing exactly how you may love your own pet?
Do you love your favorite cat because is doing something or performing in a certain way or you just love her for who she truly is, regardless of the moments of destroying some objects furniture by scratching them, besides of the fact that it may scratch you or bite you? No matter how angry you are at a certain moment in time because of this happenings, eventually you will realize that it’s just an animal with its limitations, and you will forgive whatever like nothing happened.

If so why are you so rough with people, with your own partner, family members. Don’t they deserve at least the same treatment and maybe more? Why can’t you do that? Because you had certain expectations? Maybe it’s time to realize that it’s useless to have expectations if you are really dedicated to own evolution. Understanding the (lower) human nature, that everyone is impredictable, animal-like, unaware of others or self on a very deep level… The best solution to solve the problems and “dramas” is to accept whatever like you accept when the dog or the cat pooped on your favorite carpet. After all, everything is repairable, the carpet can be cleaned and washed or even replaced. What can it be so hard for us to accept others mistakes? Are we free of mistakes, or better to say, have we done it (the mishap) ourselves at any point in time? If so would you like to receive the same treatment that you are offering to the person that is at fault? If we take time before choosing to act in a certain manner, many of our problems wouldn’t exist.

If we are aware enough and honest with ourselves, we may able to recall moments when a big drama was created out of some really laughable(now) reason.

Some people divorced out of a so-called difference of opinion. It’s bullshit because if there’s love and full awareness in there, there can never be such a thing because people who love each other, compromise. And the funny thing is that they don’t even feel like compromising. But when love fades away the capacity of the person to compromise diminishes and the one who’s love diminished more will start putting pressure on the other, starting to “feel a foul smell” out of everything that the other is doing. If you are doing that can you really realize that you are a co-creator of your dramas? Are you able to be honest with yourself and realize that if you stop fueling the incipient “fire” (arguments, reproaches..), then the entire drama will disappear? If you are not able to stop yourself from adding fuel onto the fire by creating more pressure and discontentment, then why do you expect the other to do it?

I come back to one of my previous writings about nonviolence, whatever happens, if you manage to approach that in a non-violent way, you are the promoter of peace. If something goes wrong there are always multiple choices of reacting. The most common is: how dare you doing… Or… I thought you have more brain into your head not to do… Wtf is wrong with you… These are all ways of creating a monster scandal which many times degenerates in extreme violence or unfortunate events.
Another way of reaction can be: what’s done its done, let’s see how can we repair the problem, if there’s a way or not to undo it. You can choose to go with the “little self” which may push you to accuse, blame, shame the other, or you can choose to forgive, as you will forgive the dog that pooped under the kitchen table.

So the real question you should ask yourself is: Am I really the victim in here or I am the very aggressor? Many victims are first aggressors because they are unable to comprehend that they are co-creators of the whole thing. If you would calm yourself down and say intelligent things in a calm voice, trying to find solutions instead of blaming, there can be no drama whatsoever.

I read somewhere on the internet that: If the problem wouldn’t matter in 5 years from now on, then you shouldn’t give it more than 5 minutes of your time now.

Drama is addictive, you may unknowingly end up with wanting more, creating and/or feeding with your energy these conflicts, just because the love that was there, started to diminish or totally disappeared. No need to create anything. Realize that you have to either split with that partner, but not running away from life, or diving deep into the relationship, removing the desire to control, surrendering to life itself with the decision to try to make it work.

Your personal life behavior will always reflect onto your decisions in the society, so you may try to exercise your motherlike new way of approaching your family life, and eventually you will be able to apply it into the macro scale as well.

I wish you all readers to reach out to your maximum potential during this lifetime!

The right knowledge or when the real journey begins

real knowledge

The correct information is the beginning of evolution. Getting the right information makes us fearless, because fear comes from not-knowing/ignorance about who we are and what are we doing here. If we would have the information that our existence is beyond body and we are indestructible souls made of pure Light, can we be afraid of anything? The right knowledge comes by Grace, by blessing from the higher planes of existence. The tools through which the information comes to us can be very diverse, a person, a book, a quote, a realization that appears in our mind, … So the mean through which that information comes is not very important, but what we do with that information matters.

True important information comes when we are ready for it. Real knowledge is graded, it evolves, so we may know something today which is correct, but after some time we evolve so the information becomes obsolete and we get to a new level where the previous “correct knowledge” is no longer useful. As an example: normal people in order to remove obstacles that come through eating animal related food become vegetarian which may improve the chance for those being to evolve, because evolution needs a healthy body and mind. When a person already reached a certain level, and the body is “enlightened”, whatever they eat is burned inside the body so there is no negative effect on the body-mind-spirit structure.

While I was young, I used to eat meat and all the animal-related foods, which seemed correct and represented the true knowledge and diet for me at that point. Later on I became vegetarian, which some may say that transformed the previous information into an incorrect one. It may look like that. But how I see the things now is, “Everything is correct!”¹ at a certain moment. But while we are stepping on the path of own improvement, the correctness also evolves, so we are allowed to access new intelligence, new knowledge which renders the previous knowledge obsolete or making it look rudimentary.
That’s why I don’t judge people who are addicted or eating meat since I have been there too, so I understand them, because I was one of them and I was one of the biggest advocates against removing the meat from the diet.
Be advised that real knowledge comes also with a risk of developing superiority complex or/and transforming oneself into a militant for external things, which is again a deviation from our soul real purpose. These are few of the traps on the path of self-refinement and spiritual evolution.
It’s hard for me to see people smoking, drinking and taking drugs, because I know from all the points of view what is the disturbance that each of them creates in the body and mind of a person. They create mental, body and energetic damage. I know from my own experience that we are always aware, at least to a certain level what may be the repercussions of using such things, but everything happens in due time. The process of self-refinement is slow for some and for others is fast, all according to the person’s body, mind, character peculiarities, and past lives experiences. Don’t rush anywhere, but the beginning of the journey starts with the decision to improve something in our lives. As soon as you make that decision the real journey to self-refinement starts.

When we step onto the path, the Universe/God/Highest Power starts pouring Grace into our life, true knowledge is unlocked, and old distortions come to the surface to be dealt and addressed properly. So for some time it may look that all hell broke loose, and our lives are in a continuous emotional roller-coaster. The trick of the system is that when we go back to the “old us” being scared or tired of so many things happening in our lives, life may calm down, may come back to looking tranquil, because we have to assume that it was all a mistake, but as my dear Teacher use to say: “In order for a boulder of gold to become a nice golden ring, it has to go through fire and hammering”. Like this is also about personal spiritual evolution, good things come with a price and good quality human beings are tested through hardships and throughout time.
Failing to properly address a distortion or an issue, makes that issue manifests over and over again until the right action (or no action) is there or/and until the lesson is learned. After we think that we learned a lesson, the test is released. It sounds complicated yet it is not. It is exactly like at school.

We sometimes believe that we manage to tame anger and violent behavior, but whenever we believe that, life will create a circumstance that will definitely tell if we evolved out of the distortion or not. It goes the same with whichever distortion or bad program that we’re trying to transcend. That’s why the process is a very long and tedious one, so we have to arm ourselves with patience and humbleness and a lot of courage because we are to meet our deepest fears and demons. Like the Guru of my Guru said: This is a path that many have started to walk on, but almost as many have perished due to misuse, abuse or so many other reasons.

May Blessings of Higher beings of Light be with You dear reader, may you spread your own Light onto this shadowy world we live in!

 


¹ “Everything is correct” was the sentence that a wise man , said to me after (I was) experiencing a close to death experience. From that moment on whenever I managed to remember, I took everything easier, since everything that happens is correct!
