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.

Live like there’s no tomorrow, Part II

there is no tomorrowThis illusory life we’re living in is a constant emotional struggle. Stop struggling and you will be able to see the futility of reacting or fighting against it. It will be a straight parallel to Don Quijote’s fight against the wind mills.
Before working in the present moment, go to the past and recall one of the biggest issues that you experienced. See how it feels. Remember how it felt at the moment. Is it so unbearable as it felt in that moment? I doubt. But if yes, stay there with that feeling of pain, being hurt, betrayed, lied to, cheated, ashamed or guilty… Work with it, because the progress is for the courageous people. Evolution is hidden in the pain. Why would we want to evolve when we’re in a warm, cozy place? Pain is just the engine of transformation, be there with it, realize that there is nothing to be afraid anymore, realize that that moment in time created ripples that riches over and over to you and creates havoc in your life. Situations may look very different but the main emotion is same and it continues to milk you out of your vital force dragging you into the cave of sorrow and self-pity. You want to go there? Go. But there is no one to blame but your own insecurities and lack of courage that stops you from taking yourself out of the misery.

If there is no response or a very faint one when you go to the past trauma, just draw a parallel with all the stressful situations or mishaps that happen lately in your life. Do they look so bad when the moment is gone? No. Then the only task one has so far is to give whatever problem a short period of time, from 5 minutes to few days depending on the problem/issue, but by not reacting, that bad thing looses the power, if you don’t analyze nor fall into despair, you may realize shortly that it was just a bubble of soap. Nothing in the world is worth of exhausting our emotional energy. This energy is the same energy that keeps us alive in this illusionary world we’re living in.
Like a DSLR photo camera who is having a limited amount of clicks that is guaranteed, like a bulb which has a limited amount of on/off sequences, same, our body has a limited amount of emotional energy so far. You exhaust it, you’ll have to change the vehicle (next life’s body).

I struggled with my own demons a lot, trying to abstain myself from reacting to triggers. On a smaller scale I was successful, but when a big wave was coming, I was again caught off guard. Again back to square 1. But with the help of the Grace and some very special people in my life, I managed to raise again, dust my clothes and start climbing again like Sisyphus. But the difference between him and me is that I have a chance to make it through.
The secret to getting over whatever situation is realizing how short life is and that there may be no tomorrow.

This may be also misinterpreted by some, thinking that if there’s no tomorrow they can hurt people or decide not to do their chores, stop working or so. Well, I will have to disappoint you. Actually is doing everything you can to make sure that if you reach “tomorrow”, your job is amazingly done, nobody is hurt and so on, but reacting towards the issue as there is no tomorrow. Cause if there’s no tomorrow, if only the present day is what’s left, you will maybe concentrate on having a wonderful day with your family and friends,and you will want to let them know that you love them and you enjoy the beautiful time you have with them, and you will try to be at ease with everything and everyone. And no matter what problem you may encounter during this last day, nothing will really matter, isn’t it?
The constant projection into the future is killing us slowly, but there’s no doubt about that. Live in the present, since the past is gone and the future doesn’t exist. This is that “experience the moment of now” which everyone talks about. But do you dig it? Does it ring your bell? No? Maybe not yet, but this information which existed your whole life somewhere hidden inside you, will sprout out one day, of this life or one of the next. But what is in this moment of “now”? Is that firm, steady information deeply rooted in yourself that this life can be just a dream, a game, one of the many you already had, so all that matters is just the present moment! Yet we keep on stumbling over and over again, so we have to be born again and take it all over again. One life, you enjoy the richness and you get lost in it and you forget that there’s a higher meaning for you to find. The immediate next your Higher Self will want to be poor, because whatever you took extra, eventually has to be given back. The other life you enjoy being a political leader, a religious one, a killer, dictator, and the next life you may be a victim of one… Distraction for the soul. Until you will exhaust your thirst for power, this can take hundreds and thousands of lives. Same with the love for money. There’s no problem with the money, but they are only a way of sustaining a decent existence not a purpose “per se”. When they become a purpose, like an addiction, they destroy the addict like whatever addiction does in the end, no matter what addiction that can be, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, TV, games, food, promiscuous sexuality… Yes, in the end there’s only one winner, the addiction. And here you go again, over and over on the same path, in a loop similar to the Sisyphus’s one. You may choose to stop now. Ask yourself if you want to become a better version of yourself and act upon this decision. Stop hurting people or this loop of unhappiness is going to haunt you throughout this and next lives. Forgive! Forgive yourself and everyone else. Love yourself and after you love yourself exactly how you are, without attire, titles, names, fancy clothes, diplomas, just who you truly are, and love for the humanity will come automatically coming from the realization of “We are all one”. Entitlement and righteousness is the main trap we are falling over and over again to, along with vengeance…They are all actions of a very low vibration. If we manage to transcend them, our life is going to take a turn which we are not even able to dream about.

May all of you have a chance to discover your Divinity within, and act wisely!
