When we lose the Path

So many times I thought I got lost, that I lost my path to remembering who and what I truly am, yet in fact I was still on it, but my guilt and shame for “going astray” or going back to old paths of perdition, almost blocked my way back to it (the Path”).

There is no losing the path at all, it’s all just the eternal swinging pendulum of life pushing one back and forth, up and down,in and out of balance. Know that the ripe ones observe this movement, and the change of moods and tendencies, and are choosing the right action or not to action, without letting themselves to be influenced by the eternal pendular movement of everything in this paradigm. 

Regain your faith and know that you didn’t do anything wrong, you just allowed yourself to be dragged back for a while by the force of the “low tide”, but you can easily step out of it whenever you desire to do so. And believe it or not, all of the previous Masters and realized beings have experienced the same issue and eventually overcome it. As they say: “the winner is just a loser who kept on trying” . 

The law of free will is a divine mandate that no one can oppose or go against without huge repercussions. Therefore be certain that you know what you want and make sure you don’t trespass other’s freewill either. Many times we’re tricked by entities into guilt and shame and we accept “punishments” in all ways possible, believing that we deserve them. Hence we’re bound by our own free will, smartly manipulated by the forces of darkness, so eventually there’s no one punishing or inflicting harm to ourselves but ourselves. 

Be aware of your power and become conscious of it, take full responsibility for everything and become a representative of the Divine Law instead of being a “victim” of it. The ignorant is like a leaf in the wind, moved from here to there by lack of proper higher vision and willpower. 

We are always on the right path. The elliptical path starts from the Source, goes far away from it and then, while being quite afar, the remembrance of that spark that left the Source, and memory of its true essence is reignited, the longing for returning to the Light of its Being is revived, and the Path is initiated. Consequently the long road back home starts. 

One of the hermetic principles declares: “as above so below”, So as, planets, stars, and even universes have their elliptical movements of going far and coming back, similarly, we souls are no different. Regardless of how far into the darkness a soul might have went, eventually it will steer back towards the source of everything, as another proof that there is nothing but Light out of which everything sprung out. 

Like great Master Tilopa said to his student Naropa:

“The darkness of a thousand eons cannot dim the brilliant radiance that is the essence of the sun.  Likewise, eons of samsara  cannot dim the sheer clarity that is the essence of the mind.” 

So all we need to remember is that purity of our essence that cannot be stained by anything we do. Although that shouldn’t be used as an excuse to act immoral or in any way that might be harmful or detrimental to other souls. The coming back path comes with huge responsibility. Now you know what needs to be done. We know the divine laws that we should abide by, now the ignorance of the child has been dispelled, therefore we have to embrace the responsibility of an adult and start shining in the world, silently, humbly, as the sun shines over weeds and good plants alike without need for anyone’s acknowledgement or praise, just doing the needful. . 

Start giving in a selfless way, know all existence to be one with The All, embrace It as your own being and dwell in It forever. 

It’s great that even when one goes unknowingly to “the other side”, falling again into old patterns of behavior, there’s always a stretched hand to pull one back onto the path of Truth, be it the Grace of the Guru, the call of the spiritual lineage, or whichever way it may manifest… all one needs is to be open, to listen, and nature itself will deliver one way or another the redemption message for the one that has ears to receive. 

The weak will fall into victimization, into believing that there’s no return, hence wasting another incarnation as probably happened previously, but the one that reached maturity will once again raise from the ground, dust their clothes and walk on the eternal steep road ahead that eventually unites one with its Source. 

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.
