When the hell breaks loose

The true evolution is continuous change. All life circumstances and events are in continuous movement. Karma is fastly paid and tests are arising more and more. When the yogi is close, the whole “hell” breaks loose..yet don’t be scared, it is only the inner negativity which comes to the surface to be worked with and eventually transcended. 

On this path towards remembering who we are there’s no longer stability, whole worlds are created, and destroyed in minutes the entire Creation is revealed in front of us. The victimized will feel like doomed. The true seeker will realize that he’s learning so fast that the whole world is moving faster for him only.

The price of evolution is continuous movement and “letting go”. 

We are like in a cosmic washing machine, continuously spinning faster and faster until we either succumb to the trials and go back to the old or we find our inner peace which eventually will override the external turmoil. 

The worst of the storms is the biggest blessing. The hecticness of life is a test of the level of inner contentment, acceptance and true surrender. 

Life seems more and more like a movie and the realization of its illusory nature is more and more revealed through the almost chaotic, intense ups and downs that push our boundaries to the very limit. In the midst of drama there’s a chance to realize that we are just too involved in the “movie” although we are the spectator, the actor, the director and the movie itself. Once this realization is taking place, the whole illusion collapses like a mask from own face and the true nature of self and the external world can be grasped. 

Although this realization is very powerful and has the chance to totally shift our perspective about things, if the time is not yet right we might continue to wonder around to exhaust whatever we came here to exhaust. But that true realization is a seed of destruction that will grow more and more. It’s the very destruction of the ignorance, the disillusionment that we’ve been searching our entire existence and although we might waste some time on things that are not part of the newer paradigm growing inside of us, eventually we will wake up to realize the futility of chasing chimeras and decide to follow what’s eternal and true. 

Cheer up dear souls, there’s not even one which eventually won’t come back to the Source, even after hundreds and hundreds of lives. 

After all it’s nothing but a combination of determination, courage, simplicity, selflessness and inner purity that lead us to the real inner-contentment, the stillness that who we truly are. We are all One, the only difference is timing which exists only in this experience. We are all perfect already, yet each individual has a different goal and that determines the length of the journey. And it’s all happening only in this dimension, in other dimensions we are That already. 

The desires are still keeping us prisoners to the duality, the very pleasure has in it embedded the pain. Hence love has in it the pain of loss, enjoyment of food, the hunger, and so on. Once we let go of everything the true eyes are slowly opening and we are allowed to see the illusion unfolding and its mechanisms are revealed. 

We might still love, eat and enjoy life, but there will be no desire and no attachment that were keeping us from Being. Now everything will happen through Beingness, everything will come from the inner contentment that will annihilate the “good” or “bad” outcomes of our actions since there will be just a pure flow of your Being, unobstructed by desire to control this flow. 

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. 

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.

Aren’t we all One?

The awakened being finds a teaching under each stone, under the most trivial of life experiences. But for the awakened being the old, logical mind is not making the decisions anymore, since it proved its obsolescence. Logical mind it’s still useful for navigating silently in this illusion since it’s made of the same fabric, yet for those intending to raise above the illusion, the tool must be out of the illusion. That tool gets perfected through a lot of trial and error, a lot of falling and rising again, dusting off the clothes and starting all over again.

For such being, there’s no winning or failing, since everything is just experience. Everything is pushing that being to recognize the temporary quality of all the manifested, so automatically that being is heading towards the Eternal, the recognition of one’s own Essence and the fact that this essence is all pervading, all knowing, and it’s inseparable from any bit and piece of the manifested.

Every small thing has a meaning and no meaning whatsoever. Everything is just a huge game of the Eternal playing with Self, separating Itself in tiny bits and pieces of matter, removing the omniscience from Self so that the show is: the struggle towards the removal of the ignorance of that separated, now-materialized (crystallized) Self, and the fight in the process with other pieces and bits of the same Existence that we all are. So, we are continuously facing ourselves in the struggle of getting rid of ourselves. Sounds silly, and it is silly because we can’t escape from ourselves.

The secret is the incorporation, not in the separation. We are all One. We can all feel vibration inside such a blunt and resounding Truth, yet it is too abstract for us, it removes our “uniqueness”, our “specialness”, and we don’t like that. The mind immediately removes whatever is too abstract, afraid we are that we might free ourselves from its influence. That’s the very Ego, and this is why it’s so hard to overcome, because getting rid of it means separation from any ambition or desire that we might have; we let the other Self have it, knowing that whatever is ours, can’t be lost, and that that other Self is still us.

Embrace the enemies and struggles; embrace the pains because they are the ultimate friends of Your True Self. Happiness is the blue pill from the Matrix; you may feel like you’re taking it, yet it slips through the fingers all the time until thousands of lives go wasted like that, and we feel deep inside the futility of going on the same old paths which eventually bring us back to the same old result: misery.

Let go of the idea of happiness since it’s just a trick; it’s like running in the desert for a mirage. The true happiness is within, and it’s there when we experience the “good” and the “bad” alike. Stop crying for what you don’t have and be thankful for what you have. We, the souls experiencing the human experience are the most ungrateful and forgetful beings. We are programed to want something and when that something is acquired, a new desire is born, so we can never experience happiness from the very design of this reality. If so, there wouldn’t be any billionaire and neither  would there be poor, since they would all stop at some moment enjoying their happiness which is always there, no matter how much they have or what are their titles.

Drop the ambition and in an instant you’ll experience “happiness”. True happiness is true existence, enjoying the sweet-scented and the stink alike, not bothered by any of them and not craving for anything either. It’s the moment when the whole Universe and its secrets get unlocked, and they reveal themselves to that Being, because They are that Being.

This process is the process in which we discover, not who, but What we truly are, since we are Everything and Nothing at the same time.

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.

How to not give a damn 

how-to-not-give-a-damn.jpg

Many times we allow others to imbalance us. The fault is never of “the others” since the responsibility for our lives and interpretation of it lays just with us, and the others are just mere “buttons” triggering us, our fears and distortions.

I noticed a disturbing fact about myself and I am very sure that I am not the only one that feels like this:

Let’s say that we are walking on the street and somebody is staring at us, “shamelessly”. As soon as we noticed him/her, our insecurity kicks in, especially if his gaze doesn’t look friendly, or looks mocking or if we feel that he’s measuring us. We see him laughing while he is watching us pass by. Again a sting in the heart: am I ugly, stupid, do I have carrot pieces between the teeth, is my pants zipper open? We are unable to simply be, ignoring or being comfortable with whatever happens. Watch this feeling, it’s one of the old patterns that has to be transcended and worked with. It is the very lack of self-love and confidence that make us indeed unappealing to anyone else.

When we are insecure, we are devoid of love to ourselves. How can we love someone else then?

It means that our “love” may be based on the other’s appreciation and show of care and “love”, a common exchange happening nowadays in the inter-individual relationships dynamics. When these (love, care, appreciation) are not shown by the other(-s), self-doubt appears. This self-doubt will create a mess in our lives, at first will spread like an infectious disease onto other levels of our lives like job, relationship with kids, neighbors… So, the self-sabotage appears. In these moments, if possible, let go. Let go of all expectations and desires, just surrender everything to the space,to the nothingness. Remember the Higher Self and God, and fully surrender to whatever is happening. Whatever it is, there’s no way you can change that in those moments. In moments of distress our decisions may be wrong, based on the emotional imbalance that we’re in. That’s why, let everything subside, let it be just “nothing”, as you will soon discover. Go back to some stressful situation in the past. That restlessness and fear and all are not there anymore, everything was an illusion.

We may start inventing nonsense, unifying imaginary dots, remembering things… Going lower and lower, feeling scared, deserted, betrayed and all the lower vibrational range of feelings and emotions. All the insecurities are appearing: we feel ugly, unwanted, unworthy. Well, we definitely forgot about being a spectator, only watching the storm, but not jumping into it. So remember to be a spectator even when you feel that you are in the middle of the mess, it’s just an illusion. If we realize that we can be spectators of own dramas without a need to interfere, give thoughts or analyze much, we achieved a certain “next level”. It is hard, almost impossible, because it takes some otherworldly effort to really detach and decide that we are not supposed to be creating more emotions or explanations about something that is already there.

Good luck and may you be supported on your path as I know well that all true seekers are supported, even without them knowing.

Evolution is here Now! Decide to start, and the path will unfold itself to you.

The traps of the low vibration deeds

the traps of the low vibration deeds

I have dedicated myself lately in studying my own behavior, tendencies, conscious and unconscious patterns and programs. When I realize how they manifest, I check what are the similarities with other people experiences and I choose a plan to improve myself, remove and/or transcend all the unnecessary, based on my observations.

I noticed an automatic development of a negative pattern, which I consider to be a low-level programming, part of every human being. Once we “go low”, as an example: if we are falling for an addiction like tobacco, alcohol, drugs, games, shopping, promiscuous sexuality or other (whatever addictive behavior or any lower vibrational action), we are free falling, entering a spiral of lower level actions and behavioral patterns and issues. I have noticed it in my life and in the life of all the people I have met. So I realized that we are all subjected to it.
I will offer you my example: I started smoking in my early years and soon after, I also started to drink, at first one beer at a time, then 2-3, and later on countless and much stronger alcohol, same with cigarettes, or any other, the “dose” always increases. We are all aware that the above-mentioned behaviors and substances are detrimental for us. Furthermore, we are only aware of the damage that it may provoke only on a physical level, and only sometimes we may notice that there’s also a slight mental influence. But the biggest problem with bad behavior and abuse of substances (here I include coffee, sugar, and other “harmless” day to day poisons that we are burdening our body with) is that we are unable to see what are the repercussions on a subtle, energetic level.
That’s why using substances, having a wrong diet, low vibrational actions and emotions, are dragging us in a pit where the lower we go, the easier it is to acquire more lower vibration actions, emotions and unhealthy food habits among many other. You can say that it looks like a true “road to hell”. The lower we go, the harder it is to exiting the pit and in order not to create a huge negative impact on our mental, spiritual and bodily health, all the bad habits and deeds have to be gradually abandoned, since stopping all of them at once may be a very difficult or detrimental thing to do.
I first started eliminating sugar from the coffee. Then I removed coffee, processed alcohol, all sweets, but I continued to drink sporadically only home made wine, later on to come to the realization that I don’t need alcohol at all. Meat, poultry and fish disappeared next. Slowly I removed most of the substances that I believed that carried a risk for my mental, bodily and energetic health and things started to improve. Of course we can never be totally free from bad food or influences but we can always try to do our best to reduce them, hence consciously minimizing the overall bad effect on our body-mind-spirit system.

So I am sure that as the spiraling of the low vibration actions and emotions creates a negative impact, but it also applies the other way around, there is also a spiraling of the positive actions and removal of the unnecessary, so by starting to remove all the useless actions, things, and emotions, unworthy people started to disappear from my life and, new, higher vibration people appeared , I realized new things, that we are not supposed to do anymore, and so forth. I started being more aware of what I do and say. I realized that I was living a predetermined life according to the routines and mainstream ideas I incorporated without questioning , programs and distortions accumulated throughout years and lives of ignorance. Some slight improvements of the 5 senses perception appeared primarily, (but only after I received Shaktipat¹) like being able to isolate from the distance a certain scent or sound at will, stronger intuitive sense. From own experience I can tell that some of the extra abilities are temporary,the sense of smell and hearing acuity came back to normal, and they are only part of the transition from the old towards a newer, improved self.
