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.

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.

Why we have to abandon violence? Part I

The essence of the evolution of the individual is taking full responsibility about everything that is happening in our lives.

It doesn’t matter who provokes us, who triggers us, what they say or do. The only thing that matters for us from the evolutionary point of view is our reaction to the “trigger”. We are responsible for own actions and reactions regardless of who did what to us, or who said whatever. We can of course try to find excuses and explanations for violent reactions or other lower vibrational endeavours. What we have to know is that there is no valid excuse for being aggressive. Aggression creates aggression. Brutality is not to be excused.

Violence comes from fear. Although it may sound not real, but indeed violence is a reaction to fear. Fear of losing someone, of being misinterpreted, fear of loosing status, fear of death, fear of getting hurt, … For some it may start making sense. But in order to make sense, courage to accept that we may not be perfect, knowing that we’re most of the time behaving ,inappropriate has to be there.

When one automatically goes with the violent instinct, the situation most of the time degenerates and it may spiral negatively with very bad repercussions following.

Let’s say someone calls us idiots, and we decide to punish them for saying that, and we hit that person. No good thing can come out of that choice of you to become violent. Let’s take some potential consequences: person falls and dies- jail for the aggressor. Person falls and hurt themselves badly… Jail and/or vengeance from the victim who decides to strike back; the person hits us so hard that we die; a fight is born and both get really damaged and the enmity will be for ever, each time they’ll see each other will try to hurt one another; there a multitude of other similar scenarios and none of them is positive. Even let’s just say that you hurt him, and everything goes cold, he forgets, you forget and life continues like nothing happened, still the bad deed will be creating bad situations in your life because somewhere deep inside our being we judged ourselves for doing that.

But all the above situations can be avoided by knowing that you are not an idiot (or whatever the other person calles us) , but deciding to allow the aggressor to have their opinion. Anyway, You can bless(say something peaceful) him, you can just turn around and go, or you can say thank you, … Each of these choices will astonish the aggressor who subconsciously or not consciously was trying to provoke you but it will defuse the potential dangerous situation spirals up. So we always have a choice to avoid any problems, or to go with the old instinct of violence, which is pulling one down, lower and lower because one low vibration actions attracting more and more bad decisions and actions. The aware person can always change the way they are acting consciously.

Is world going to end? Part II

When we believe that world is going to be ending soon, we’re adding on top of the fear that we’re already fed with, since early childhood. It is not going to kill us but it’s going to be another promoter for bad decisions in our lives, because there are no worse decisions than those taken in the midst of emotional turmoil and when the fear is at its peak.

I have been there. I believed that the world was living its last days and all kind of mistakes but I learned out of it. I learned not to worry anymore about any potential incoming cataclysmic event.
For some people cataclysmic events happen every single day. They die, so for them the end of the world already happened. People die in such ways that at the end of the day you realize that it really doesn’t matter anymore how one dies. The funny thing is I was close to die while working in an office as an IT assistant. A desktop computer with two sources and 2 graphic cards, weighing close to 10 kilos fell straight with one of the corners on my head from 1,5-2 meters height. Who would have thought that there is such a hazard while having an IT job, right? It seems that my time wasn’t yet due. So be sure that when the time is right death is but inevitable. Be ready at any point to surrender to it. Live like there’s no tomorrow, from the point of view of making peace with everyone and everything and taking each extra day as a blessing, an extension in which you have to cherish the life and count your blessings.

Embrace death consciously and you will evolve, because one of the biggest fears is the fear of death.

Don’t be afraid, sit back and enjoy death if it’s your turn. Because death is the ultimate experience which helps one evolve. The way we receive this last experience already shape the future life.

Ancient civilizations were preparing for death their entire life. Egyptians for instance no matter if they were poor, middle class or royalty, all were preparing themselves for the departure since their early life.
Thracians, my ancestors, were crying when someone was born in their family and they were partying when one was dying. Because they knew the essence of this life and what’s all about.
The Spartans won battles where they were outnumbered at least 10:1 because they weren’t at all afraid of dying.

Once we realize that we’re not the body(only) and we are immortal souls, the whole self improvement will make sense. Just by being ignorant about our soul immortality and divine essence, makes us live in fear and allows us to behave in a selfish, not caring way for the other, because we are not aware that we are cells of the same body and we are One and it’s silly to hurt ourselves (by hurting others).

Although we seem to understand the last parable about being all cells of the same body, the real depth of it however, is very rarely grasped since it takes a free human being, to fully realize that inside their core.

About F.E.A.R(False Evidence Apearing Real) Part II

Fear sometimes is deeply hidden in the cellular memory, we may not even be aware of it, but regardless, all our decisions are made having the fear in the background.

Fear is like the surgical instrument that was “forgotten” inside us when the “surgeon” closed us in the past life.
We are sometimes unaware that we are talking nonsense(socially accepted bullshit) to people we don’t necessarily like, because of the fear, fear of not being accepted, liked, of being considered antisocial or weirdos. But we even became unaware of doing that, it became an automatic behavior that we must be aware of. We are staying with the wrong partner because of fear. We are bullying because of the fear of being otherwise bullied ourselves. We are becoming violent with people because of fear that they may leave us, or not do what we want them to do.

You see, my dear reader, fear is the unfortunate driving force which is ruling our life from the shadow, like our own “deep state” who rules us without us even noticing it.
Trying to control, or better said being a control freak comes from a deep sense of fear!

I was once flying for a very long time, and all of a sudden we meet tremendous turbulences. First I was afraid, I felt like shaking, my breath became chaotic, I started moving anxiously checking people around with my eyesight to see how are others taking the extreme event. I have seen people with they’re knees to their mouth, crying, lamenting… That moment I had a revelation: I am going to die! But then I stopped myself and decided to enjoy death fully, to sit back and enjoy my last extreme roller-coaster with grace and a broad smile on the face. And I did, I was so proud of my achievement, I felt that this is exactly the way people should welcome death. Because death is the only certainty that we have in this life. I was in bliss, while others were crying. Besides what’s the point of crying and lamenting? Is it going to change anything? This realization changed my life and patterns of thoughts and behavior along with it. Obviously nobody died, but even the flight attendants were pale and looking shaked because of the severity of the turbulences that we’ve been through.

You see, there’s no real utility for fear after we became adults, actually losing it will create real adults with real decisions which would make this world thrive. Learn to give freedom to people, freedom to do whatever they want, let go of control, look “vulnerable” without being vulnerable and when you’ll realize that life is taking care of you, there’s no need to worry about it, then you will experience blissful surrender, like I had on that plane, surrendering all expectations and projections, letting go of everything, even life.

Throughout my life, each time I surrendered to the unknown, having as a very likely possibility that I was going to loose something, eventually not only that I haven’t lost anything but I gained realizations, essential conclusions which push us further on the path of self-perfection. I also gained the partnership that I was dreaming about at that moment in time, by surrendering to the other’s will, accepting that the answer can be also a negative one.

In order to learn to be a winner, learn how to lose first, with grace, acceptance, understanding, humbleness…this will be a service to yourself and a great tool for your further evolution.

Keep on going on your path, because what’s a winner? A loser who tried one more time!

If you think your life is hard, maybe you are in the elite training mode, and you should remember:
