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. 

Linear vs. Quantum

Walking in a regular, linear (typical A to B thinking) style will not take you to the quantum world. Going onto old ways and itineraries and using the same old tools that took you nowhere would not be able to take you anywhere or give you new outcomes that you dream about. 

The limited mind is the very representation of the old, so you can recognize the influence of the mind by the conservative approaches and actions that try to preserve its status quo. Mind tries to preserve the old ways that insures its ruling over the dormant Self. Therefore if you dream (aspire) about waking up, you have to take a leap of faith into the unknown, into newness. You have to be courageous to embrace the unknown, be wise and patient, pure, humble and crazily letting go of each past moment, ruthlessly slashing unnecessary ties with the old and the darkness. 

You have to know that whatever you see is somewhat an illusion because of the limited tools of perception. The senses are very limited compared to the vastness of existence and its infinite expression. The senses only perceive a small fraction of what truly is, so the image, sound and feeling of something is mostly a mind concept, created out of insufficient data collected by the senses, the mind draws the rest of the image according to beliefs and memories of the past which are even more phantasmagoric due to the lack of previous correct perception/interpretation of the past experiences. This knowledge about our impossibility/limitation to see the entire “picture” should humble us down, accepting that the most probable thing is that we don’t know anything, and this is the beginning of true wisdom.

Even in situations in which we believe that we are exposing ourselves to novelty and growth, there might be little or no truth about it. Let’s take for instance the interaction with a Siddha (perfected) being if we are ripe enough to recognize such an encounter. . Although we feel intuitively that the being in front of us is in a different (higher) reality /paradigm then we are, so we intuitively feel that being as in a more advanced state than us, we are still unable to comprehend and to imagine the extent of that difference, similar to a child not being able to truly imagine the complexity of the adult experience and perception that comes with time and maturity. Therefore we will continue to project onto that being our old ideas and perception and judge his/her actions, words and appearance according to our own patterns and faulty (socially imposed) rules that are dictated by the mind(ego), which wants to preserve its reign over the dormant Self and ensure its continuity throughout lifetimes. 

The only way we might have a chance to change the linearity into quantum is by accepting, by flowing with life, fully trusting it and without projecting potential outcomes onto it. Each time we project, expect and hope about a certain outcome coming true, we are trying to manipulate life to flow in a certain way that we expect, project or hope, therefore depriving ourselves of what is truly ours to have and experience, just because we are afraid of the unknown and we are unable to trust. This is the very reason for the suffering that everyone is experiencing at this moment. 

A perfected being will truly trigger all the falsehood and darkness that we have within and we try to numb, hide and deny that even exists within us. It is so easy to blame the trigger instead of knowing and owning our own shit. After all everything and everyone outside of ourselves are just triggers and pointers to what is already within us. Once something is not within ourselves it is impossible for an external factor to trigger what is not there. It’s like someone coming with a torch inside a cave, but since there’s no wood or other inflammable material inside the cave, there will be no chance of a fire to start. 

Therefore we shouldn’t blame external elements as people and situations for what we don’t like, but rather take full responsibility for what we feel/experience and wonder about, and question and realize what’s our input for that situation to take place. Because that is ours and the reason is within, so don’t blame anyone without because it is like blaming the sea for drowning you, when it is your fault that you jumped inside without knowing how to swim. 

If we remember that everything that we experience outside is caused by what is within us, then we indeed walk the path of rediscovery, of self-realization.  As a small example once we’ve transcended and realized the uselessness of being envious or jealous with someone for whatever reason, no matter what qualities or possessions people will have, they will fail to ignite any jealousy or envy.

A perfected (Siddha) being will be invisible for us in its magnanimous effulgence that he/she has, if we haven’t reached a similar level, because all we will see in that tranquil water (that that being is like) will be our own crap and ignorance being reflected back to us.

I have seen people running away from that type of experience and I did that myself many times. It is truly unbearable for the one not ready to take full responsibility for EVERYTHING, and it is so easy to blame the trigger, to blame the mirror that shows a monster. But the monster is hidden within us and its power lies in its secrecy, in the fact of us being unaware of its whereabouts and its very existence. And that is not a different entity but ourselves, the very animalistic, basic, instinctual, victimized, vengeful, unforgiving, coward, dark and egotistical self that is ruling this paradigm, like some sort of the boss of the end of this level that we are trying to pass, like in computer games. 

Once we admit that there might be a monster lurking within, its powers diminish and eventually, by losing the ignorance and knowing that its existence is a fact, that monster transforms into a sweet little puppy, a harmless animal that has a potential to transform both into a rabid, totally uncontrollable wolf, or into a faithful, loving and tamed dog. Both potentialities exist in the same time, but we are aware of the choices and the wisdom will dictate from now on when each of those are to be used. 

There’s a risk of people taking charlatans for Siddha (perfected – highly evolved spiritually) beings. Unfortunately there are not many known Siddha beings incarnated at the moment, at least that I am aware of, yet the ones that try to mesmerize the masses by posing as such beautiful beings are many. In reality the capacity to recognize such Beings it is just according to our own vibration. We attract what’s within us. If within its mostly corruption and illusion we will attract someone who is similar, until we realize the lesson of that level and we get a chance to get to the “real deal”. If we’re vibrating in a certain way we will definitely attract similar vibrating beings and experience. But truly evolved beings that came one way or another into our lives are recognized by their vibration as useful trees are recognized by their fruits. From now on that being’s appearance in our lives will trigger an inner fight, the eternal fight between ignorance and knowledge, between good and bad, old and new… All the qualities, the morality, our purity and humbleness will be under severe scrutiny by Life itself. All the props and crutches are going to be destroyed or temporarily deactivated. We are definitely going to show what material we are made of. Since the path is taking us to a whole new level, it will not just going to be given like that to the one who hasn’t earned it before showing their true nature. 

Similarly I am sure no one would give a totally new driver a brand new Lamborghini to drive, unless they’ve proven their skills on a lower level car. As such with stepping into a whole new paradigm, one has to prove himself/herself worthy and equipped with the necessary skills to survive the new challenges and vibration.

So if we are really looking for the real let’s forget about complaining and wanting to change anything according to our fickleness of mind, let’s rather develop stoicism, patience and purity and all that is ours will undoubtedly come our way. 

Who am I?

I just can’t box myself.
The moment I believe I am intelligent I see my many moments of stupidity.
The moment I believe I am a bad person I see the purity and kindness of my heart.
When I see my qualities, life is pointing at my shortcomings.
Who am I? How can I say that I am this or that?, I am like this and like that, because I encompass everything, the ugliness and beauty, the white and the black alike. I know that everything is beyond the polarities yet it remains just a fiction (whilst not fully realized) , another concept for the mind to play with and to twist, a theory that is not yet embedded in each particle of my physical and subtle existence.

The Being knows it, it is That, the essence that’s beyond the duality, the place where everything emerged from. Yet the mind and its physical vessel is limiting, because I don’t know yet how to stop it. Of course I know there’s nothing to stop. How can you stop an inexistent car? It’s frustrating, says the mind. Yet the body is relaxing, no longer falling for the mind anxious ways,..It aligns with the Being. I let go, I, that being that IS, and nothing else. Everything else I am not. I am not the mind, not the body, I am not my character and it’s ephemeral qualities. The logic can’t grasp it, because it’s not just a thought put into writing, it’s just That, that I am, that we all are.

Do you see it? Probably. Probably not. Do you feel it, yes! I am certain. I bet some little click happened within, of course the mind will cover it up, trying to hide it, like it deletes everything that’s too abstract for its limited, squary logic to grasp, but this click is not possible to delete, because it comes from that which unites us all. It is eternal. Unbound. Unstoppable. Like a tsunami. But it can be delayed, because the mind in its existing inexistence controls another illusion which is time. But that little click will slowly blossom and the process is unstoppable, remember. Let what’s a dream vanish, and what’s true stay. In time we will master the method. We are One.

So who am I? Can’t tell. But I know that everything that I thought I was, I am not.
As soon as I box myself, I see the box,.. It used to be invisible, but slowly I started feeling it, because the mind created it. So what am I? I just am. I am.

I am like a seed. A seed that used to want to grow into a full-fledged tree in the world, but I have to find my way back. To re-learn how to be a seed and stay there, unborn, unsprouted, uncreated, bathing in the eternal bliss of Sat Chit Ananda.

I am not running away from the world, from life. On the contrary, I embrace it fully, looking so immersed in it, yet something is different this time. I am no longer on “autopilot” mode. I am more and more aware. This awareness is slowly growing and things that used to be there, fixed in my character start to vanish or become fainter.

Victimization – a spiritual disability

 

One of the biggest obstacle towards freeing ourselves from the shackles of the darkness of our ignorance is victimization. It is that sweet and sour feeling that the world is against us, that we are mistreated by life and the others, where we feel pity for ourselves. If you are there, you are trapped by your own inability to take full responsibility for your existence and if you continue on this path you can not exit. 

Exiting and transcending victimization is a huge progress yet a very hard decision to make. I have seen very beautiful souls that are, at least for the moment, incapable of taking full responsibility for everything in their lives. 

Whatever happens in your life is definitely there for you, there’s no accident, no chance. It is for sure some test, some karmic debt, some lesson to learn from. By running away from owning that moment in full awareness without blaming anyone, you are depriving yourself from a clear vision of where you stand at this moment on your evolutionary path. 

From experience I know how easy and comfortable it is to blame external factors, people and life in general for our experience. It’s such a soothing feeling to blame and point fingers at others instead of owning it all gracefully. 

First time I did it (managed to act out of the box) was with a very dear person to me that was appearing mean and disrespectful to me, when I decided to flip the tables and see things differently. Wow, what a shift. All of the sudden, a very potentially traumatic event appeared for what it truly was: nothing at all. It is us with our own power of consciousness, and roaming in heavy thoughts and over-analysis  that we create out of thin air traumatic events and enemies, through our veiled perspective about life. 

The spiritual student is a spiritual warrior. He/she sees the world as their opportunity to grow out of old habits and old paradigms that were keeping them fettered to the illusion. Now they see the world for what it is: a neutral school of souls to uplift themselves from the darkness of their ignorance. Everything is a theatrical play put in place by your higher Self to uproot once and for all the limitations that acted on your being as shackles, as huge fetters of ignorance blocking your advancement. 

The world we experience will change radically in front of our very eyes if we shift from the perspective of the victim to that of a being that knows always that whatever happens in their existence in the human body is just a play of the universe testing, balancing, healing and transcending old patterns into an unveiled, better perspective on life and the path towards self-discovery. 

Be grateful to everyone that takes you out of balance, that shakes you out of your illusory cocoon. Onto this path you started walking, there are no enemies. Be grateful to events that are out of your ordinary routine because there lays the opportunity of growth. Every single event or person that brings you into a state where you can choose to feel victimized is a great chance to grow and leave behind unnecessary and old ways of perception. 

Say to yourself,” ok, this happened! What’s my role in it, what is the lesson, what is the reason” . Forget about blaming others because it is of no use, forget about blaming circumstances because it is a misconception. Nothing is random, nothing happens by chance. Be grateful to those that shake your peace, because they’re the reminders that you are either that peace no matter what is happening, or you are just another spiritual hypocrite. 

The brilliance of life will be noticed immediately after forgetting the victim’s way of thinking and being. Your flow in life will be smoother and what you experience will be seen in direct accordance with the Higher plan of your Self, where there are no random events or people, they all have a great role in our evolution. 

Everything carries in it a great danger or a great opportunity. It is only a matter of our choice what is going to be. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!”. Remember that and always take the right approach in whichever situation, take the juice of life and don’t allow nothing neither anyone drag you back to your old way of perception. Remember if you believe that your life is miserable and you are a victim of it and people, you will be enforcing that over and over again with your energy and thoughts. As soon as you shift, the paradigm will shift too and a veil will be lifted from you to grow further. 

Perceiving reality

Whatever is disturbing us outside, people, events, things and what not, are in fact a turbulence in our own field, a distorted way of externalizing what’s internal and seeing it in an obviously distorted way. Therefore patience in allowing life to unfold and time to unveil everything is mandatory for the spiritual adept since without patience we would be continuously pushed by the mind and its erroneous interpretation of existence, to take actions and say things that we might not want or we might regret later. 

The world we’re experiencing is perceived therefore in an erroneous way. Everything comes translated by the logic in something that resembles something that happened in the past, because this is the capacity of the limited mind to relate to past events and things it learned in order to decipher the present moment. The present moment is always altered by the past perception, that’s why all the wisdom that reached us from old times through scriptures or oral transmissions emphasizes over and over again living in the present moment.

We assume that we are doing it, yet besides the erroneous interpretation of the mind through past distortions (sometimes as old as from previous lives), we are always burdened by thoughts of past and future. We are always allowing that inner voice to distract us from whatever is NOW. That is the voice of the lower mind, the ego which is conservative(nothing to do with politics), which wants to be always in control and in its comfortable, known box and trying to prevent us at all costs from breaking the walls of our self-created prison, whilst our true perception of reality remains but a dream, some event that should be happening in a distant future. 

We are always wondering about past events, “what if I would have done this or that”, or future planning. Everything is very useless, its only purpose is to keep us enslaved and burdened by regrets and full of hopes,one more useless and illusory than the other. 

In hoping there’s a desire to control the outcome of our actions, we are trying to manipulate life’s flow towards something that we assume might be the best thing that could happen. True knowledge and wisdom comes with humbleness and knowing that we know so little, no matter how far we have reached, even when we reached the point of the self-born knowledge blooming within, there will still be an infinitesimal number of aspects of the world, ourselves and life that we are going to be ignorant about. 

The wise person is free from hopes, because inside he/she no longer desires to manipulate the flow of life, there’s total surrender to Life, trusting fully that whatever is unfolding is always the best experience for them to have. That makes them always at ease with themselves, and at peace with the external manifestation. Even in the midst of the storm they maintain their inner contentment and peace, knowing that nothing lasts forever in this experience and their actions come from that same root of sedateness and inner contentment aware of the illusory aspect of life. 

Working with distortions

When we are being triggered by something or someone’s actions or words, it means that that distortion is inside of us and that person or event was just an external stimulus to something that was previously existing inside of us in the form of a distorted understanding of life and its neutrality.

I believe that there was a traumatic event in everyone’s childhood or youth in which we felt low, hurt, not worthy, alone and/or not taken into consideration, therefore we created a “strong me” image yet in reality it might not be quite as it may look. We might believe that being vulnerable makes us weak, yet we become strong by overcoming that identification of the adult and independent self that we are showing at the moment with the helpless little hurt child from the past.

We are all victimized to a certain extent. But when we react to a certain stimulus it means that that trigger (stimulus) touched a soft spot, brought a weakness into our awareness and that should be happily embraced as a huge potential for transcending past distortions which are plaguing our present and inevitably the future too. Therefore we shouldn’t point fingers outside to the stimuli(people or events), but see what is the issue that the trigger uncovered. So our reactions to those stimuli are unfolding a certain traumatic event(from childhood) that has been misinterpreted and/or swiped under the rug, and no matter what is that event, the idea is to break away from the victim mentality, knowing that we are definitely not victims of events or people but rather creators and we are supposed to take full responsibility.

Taking responsibility and accepting whatever is happening is an evolutionary step forward, and other, deeper distortions will come forth to be worked with as soon as we have worked the ones that are brought to our attention today.
If we choose not to, it’s fine, it’s our choice… Yet life might push people and events to trigger that soft spot until we either transcend it by accepting and realizing that only our limited perception and interpretation made it such a big deal, or until we will succumb under the external pressure and our inner resistance to change.

Change is inevitable, as certain as death and taxes, but awareness about the eternal changing nature of life and realization and acceptance of it will bring tremendous peace and wisdom.

Just a random flow of words

We are captured in a game by our own addiction to dopamine and endorphins. This secret was definitely captured and kept even more secret by the companies that are ruling the world at the moment and make money from us because we are just a product for them, which is sold to other companies in the name of profit, control and power. 

Before the technological times we were still addicted to chemical pleasure induced by endorphins and dopamine but there were different stimuli which are still active like good food, alcohol, sex and any activities that are creating pleasure for us the human beings. Now everything is played at a very different level, because of the technology we are more and more addicted and controlled. 

Let’s take the example of a simple computer game, it has embedded a system of “stick and carrot” that turn them to be very addictive, because by default we are going to be fighting for that carrot and avoiding as much as possible the stick. But the fault of these games at the beginning (according to the creators) it was that they were ending in matter of days, weeks or maximum months so the grip of the illusion was loosing its power and that meant that they’ve lost their clients. All the games created nowadays are endless, created to keep us in a continuous loop of unawareness and submission, hoping for that little kick of dopamine that will make us feel “happy”. The same principles are applied in social media. Likes, hearts and flames among others are irresistible goals for the nowadays people. The very psychology is dissected and used against us to keep us in a inception-like reality, like a dream in a dream.

All the social media, game industry, fashion industry and everything adapted to create this apparent “perpetuum mobile” that will maintain us in a chemically induced submission of our will and inner power. The medical and pharmaceutical systems are functioning in the same way. Why would they heal the world? Wouldn’t that mean that it will be the end of their businesses? Why would the weapon industry want to create peace? Wouldn’t that (the peace) end the life of their businesses – a mammoth of war composed out of companies that are sucking the countries dry by speculation of differences? 

We are now being played by the differences, all the things that are differentiating us are used, manipulated in order to create smaller and smaller factions that will make us feel separated from the only group that we truly belong – the earthly beings. Now people self identify as gay, hetero, catholic, agnostic, muslim, female, male, trans, black, latino and what not. In reality we are all beings. We are played by our own narcissistic desire to feel special, different, to feel more important than others. Divide et impera, is used as the means to create rapture between us. Families are torn apart, friends and neighbors are now split because of politics and separation of race, because of believing in different things, because one believes in the government and the other in the extreme corruption of that government, because of sexual choices and whatever they might find as a means to separate. 

Separation is the key to destruction! 

To counter it, see everyone as yourself, as your child, mother, father, sister… Start seeing what unites us all, because what separates is out there every day trumpeted and enhanced by the media, by the government, by all the entities that feed out of our separation. Start realizing and remembering that we are all just Light of the Divine, deprived of the memory of being Divine, split into billions of tiny particles and inhabiting temporary intelligent constructs made of flesh, bones, cartilages and muscles, supposed to find our way back. 

The way back is through unity. The way back is acceptance of the inner and outer flow, of the inner and outer corruption, of the inner and outer purity… Everything is to be accepted and received without emotions. Be in the world but not of the world! Somewhere deep inside yourself you KNOW that we are all One,.. you still feel that it is true yet in this identification with the body and the ego, the information is canceled and misunderstood. Be (like) a caring mother for everyone and the world will unfold differently. We are living in a world where several timelines and dimensions are coexisting, as such many people living in an apparent hellish realm could have a good life or experience and vice-versa; people that are living in a paradisiacal environment can feel and experience the living hell. 

Once our perception changes, the outer world will be changing. Everything is inside ourselves in the form of distortions and tendencies and projected by our minds outside; like that, the illusion is born! 

World is a mind construct. Once you control the mind, you are free from the fetters of bondage. Once the mind stops, the turmoil ceases too. Try it and convince yourself! 

The biggest misconception



The biggest misconception that our mind serves us is that we are limited to the boundaries of our own bodies. That’s the invisible cell wall of our self-created prison.


I read in Yoga Vasistha, that the ignorant sees the golden bracelet in the form of just a bracelet and forgets the gold that is the essence of the bracelet. As such we are ignorant of the Supreme Self, that is the very essence of each and every manifested being or object. So let’s try to see deeper, because whatever is visible might be deluding and distracts us from recalling the Divine essence that imbues everything.
If we are That, the Absolute and Universes and everything inside and outside of them, how can we confine it to the limited bodies of ours, how can we limit ourselves to such a degree when we are Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient as our essence is. We are just different jewelry and accessories made out of the same priceless material – God/The Ultimate /That..


Now maybe you can have that “Eureka” moment like I had myself, realizing that although we are bound by will and desires of the mind to this existence in the human body, in reality we remain that same boundless Being of pure Light that has no limit neither is confined by anything. Whatever we were always searching for (as true spiritual pursuits) was already inside of us all the time and our only effort should be in eliminating the misconceptions through which we are held prisoners and these misconceptions are created by the master of them all – our lower mind.


To transcend the mind at first we must exert a huge amount of willpower, this exertion will not take us to any palpable result, but to the realization that the machinations of the mind – thoughts and desires – are not real, are just limitations and the cunning snare of the Illusion which is the mind itself building the illusion that we are surrounded by. So the exertion of power, and courage serves just as a proof of our determination which allows Grace to come and remove the veil, otherwise it’s as futile as action as applying sunscreen on a rainy day. I know what you think, but then can’t we just wait for the Grace to come and bring with it the peace and silence inside of the mind and remove its limitations and reveal the Mind which is an extension of the Mind of the Creator, of the Absolute? I wish it could be that easy, because through the “false” path of exertion and action we show our valor, our courage, our determination, sturdiness, patience, humbleness, purity and selflessness which are mandatory for the true Self-realization of who we truly are, like I said in previous articles, the Power is Intelligent in itself, being but an extension of the Absolute, so it can’t be tricked, bribed or be brought forcefully or prematurely.


So go on and show what you are made of, discover and dust off from the shelves of oblivion the qualities of which we are all made of – the qualities of the Supreme: purity, selflessness, contentment, non-judgment, non-differentiation, acceptance, humbleness, courage, unattached and unbound by any belief, concept or desire and discover those beautiful wings that you were carrying with you the whole time, spread them wide and remember how to fly, cause after all it must be like riding the bike, once you do it, you will always remember it.
Start cultivating these qualities, or better said remove those fake qualities of the ego and illusion to rediscover the simplicity and purity of the true Self. Force your attention onto every single second of your life, bring awareness in your life and let it be your forever partner in the world, because awareness is what differentiates us from the ignorant animal-like beings that are just like leafs in the wind of the ever-changing and consuming illusory world.

If we realize that there’s no I and me, or other, that we are all One and that One is All, how can we need any moral rule or laws to restrict our actions, when we know that the action against another being is directly against ourselves?

We are living in God



I have the feeling that already the title has intrigued you. This is my realization, so it is just my own personal perspective about this matter.


Let’s think that we’re a cell in some living being. Can we be aware that we are part of a being? My assumption is that we can’t, we’re just doing our (cell) job growing, dividing (self), and some specific tasks that all the cells have and that’s it. Likewise we, humans are in our greater majority unaware of what’s the system that we are part of, we are unaware of the planet which is our body that we are part of, as the cell being a part of a living being. As such through extrapolation maybe you can realize that all the multitude of universes, realms and dimensions are cells in the primordial Being which we can call God, the Absolute and so on.


Everything is like a game play; it’s like the imagination of a novel writer that decided to allow its intellect run freely, creating world after world, story after story each of them being illusion and reality in the same time. If the writer has no limits and is omnipotent, then It can make that illusion (that in which the limited/normal writer can’t expand further than putting it in a novel or into a movie) actually take place, exist like a multidimensional movie where the Ultimate took out of Self billions of little pieces that were deprived of their omniscience, omnipotence and all the other Supreme qualities and were scattered inside the movie that It created for no other purpose but to see if those little bits of itself will know how to come back to their origin, to recognize and remember who they truly are – All and Nothing – finding again their power which was always inside of themselves, being occulted from themselves, by the power of the dual game of Maha-Maya (the Great Illusion). And everything from the “Upper-Perspective” is always correct, always right. But if we take things out of the context, like seeing things only from this life’s perspective, then we are definitely subjective, hence incorrect in our assumptions.

Accept everything and you will enter into the Divine stream of Life. Oppose and you are creating more illusion and suffering for yourself. Take this life as a game, as a sports competition in which you are supposed to be fair-playing, humble yet powerful, knowledgeable yet not a show-off, seeing everything yet not judging, minding only your part in this game, without scattering yourself into caring what other people think, what others do or say. Become independent and fix that smile on your face in “good” or “bad” and the good and bad will just merge, and you will realize that the result is “That” , which you have always been, devoid of characteristics or tags, the Eternal stillness of the Intellect which is the Creator and Knower of everything.


Does a cell inside of our bodies feel alone ever? Aren’t there millions and billions other that make us whole? Therefore although we are alone in this game, from the point of view of the fact that we have to take full responsibility for everything that happens to us, yet we are always part of a system (like cells of a muscle being part of the muscular system that has countless numbers of similar cells). Pull your head from your bottom and see, open your eyes of the Intellect (the higher intelligence) and start seeing (knowing). Don’t think small. Look at the ants how ignorant they are of the curious people watching them; how easy it is for the observer to destroy them, or give them a huge amount of food or some other type of help, yet they’re still going to be ignorant of “who”, “what”, in which way and the whole reason behind it all. We are the same from the point of view of those watching us, yet that shouldn’t scare us neither should it bring despair, because the game is fair even for the ants, after they fulfilled their duties in the ant life they’re going to advance to their next level and eventually reaching that point of the person watching the ant-house. As such if we do our best, with humbleness, honesty (especially to self), with surrender, acceptance and letting go of everything, we are going to be free one day of this game of evolution, when we will realize that we have always been “there”, but we failed to see it by foolishly accepting the self-imposed limits and barriers through beliefs that were there only to be uprooted as the obstacles on the hurdling track being there to jump over.


Can a cell evolve out of its destined existence of being a cell and performing its tasks, and become more than a cell? Highly unlikely, but the human being can evolve for sure out of its limitations and realize its true nature.

Break the chain

We are very unhappy with people that hurt us throughout our lives and we find it very hard to forgive and forget what they did to us. I will try to offer you a different perspective that might change the way you look at these people. 

A boy is systematically beaten by the father, yet the boy loves the father. The boy is scared and feels like there’s no love coming from the father. He tends to look for any little sign of kindness and embraces that with joy as a sign of father’s love that he’s craving for although love seems to be missing. 

The boy is very likely to grow up hating the father and trying to get his revenge somewhat. He may grow up to be an aggressive man himself. He can incarnate in a future life and punish somehow the father for all the beating and torture. This is a vicious circle of karmic entanglement that not many people nowadays are able to break. In theory it must be easy, we just forgive and forget, we let go of whatever happened. In reality It’s very hard, I know it myself. 

But let me give you a wider image of the previous story. The boy and the father in previous life were lovers. The father was the female and the boy the lover. Their love was intense and they were unable to live without each other, they promised to each other that their love will last forever. He goes to the war and gets captured by the enemy. The woman receives news that he disappeared along with his unit and they are all considered dead. After suffering and crying she felt like suiciding but she couldn’t do it because of their little child that they had. So because being a lonely woman with a child was hard, she accepted to marry her old, unappealing to her – boss. 

Three years later after war was over, the man comes home to find his wife having another two kids with some other man. He was devastated and she felt very guilty and victimized. He started drinking and he died as a consequence of his alcohol addiction. She was very angry with him because he never forgave her, and didn’t even want to understand her situation. She died several years later. 

Because of the suffering when she was a woman, because she was sexualy abused during the period of the husband being a prisoner, she decides that she wants to be a man so she incarnates as a male. The boy sees with his unaltered consciousness (before incarnating again) that he exaggerated with his reaction and he decides to be born as the child of his former wife – now his father in order to try to pay his karma. Without knowing why (unconsciously) the father is continuously irritated by the child which is loving the father unconditionally. The father (as in the previous life) hates the child because that hatred came from the past life through entitlement, guilt and shame and other low vibrational emotions towards the unforgiving lover. 

Now the father is just fulfilling his role in this huge game of life. The game of life is always fair, only we lack the whole picture to realize that. The boy, now grown-up, decides to forgive the father from the bottom of his heart so he breaks the entanglement. But many people continue this game of ”I hit you and then you hit me” forever, that’s why they’re caught up in this trap that they have set for themselves. 

The same thing happens in the army, there were three stages of recruits: newcomers, middle boys and veterans. Always the veterans and the middle boys will make the newcomers lives miserable until they become themselves middle boys or veterans. Here, breaking the spell is harder since the entire group of veterans and middle boys are supposed to stop the mistreatment. But in our individual cases it should be easier. Forgive and forget everyone. Realize that they are paying you back for past deeds. Don’t punish, don’t take revenge. Break the chain, stop the curse that is throwing you back again and again into the game of punishing and being punished. Accept all the punishment that comes in your life with ease, know for sure that you are supposed to experience that and accept, surrender and let go. This is the shortcut to the self-realization. 

Our aggressors in this life were our victims in past lives. If you truly forgive them and send love and blessings to them instead of hatred and desire to revenge, you break the karmic chain. Once you break it, you start paying off all your debts. People may rob you, talk bad about you, they can cheat. Be happy! You are paying your debts. 

Thank them all inside of self. If you feel that is necessary you can do it in person also, but only if your intuition is advising you to do so, otherwise is might be not only unnecessary, but inadvisable. 

Life is made up of events that are always correct and aligned with the bigger picture (that we’re unable to see) in which we all play our roles in paying off our karmic debts and involuntarily we are tools in the hands of Life in making others pay off their debts. Vengeance is one of the biggest traps, everyone can be vengeful, everyone can be righteous. Forget about them all, especially righteousness which is the cunning hidden trap in everyone’s lives. Once someone said: “Would you rather be right or content?!” I know everybody feels like answering “content” yet when we find ourselves in the position of being right, oh it’s so hard to chose contentment. But slowly-slowly we can do it. It’s enough to want it, it’s enough to decide to break the chain of self-imposed slavery (by reincarnating over and over to punish our aggressors), and half of the work is done. The rest is acceptance of whatever comes your way, surrender onto whatever your Higher Self prepared for yourself and let go of any expectation, any projections, any memory of people hurting you, abusing you… Let them go with love. Those who hurt you have a great potential of creating a purer “you”, a more experienced, more loving, forgiving and more humble person. Thank them and love them instead of holding a grudge. This is the secret of truly breaking the karmic entanglement. 

In this world whatever is supposed to be ours will be and nothing is ever lost, if it is lost and doesn’t come back, it means that it was never yours. Someone stole something from you, be happy! It’s the easiest way to pay some past deed. Bless everyone in the process. Those who wish you good are there to ease the pressure. Those who are here to punish you are those who push you to thrive and break through. Like I stated before, in this world of duality everything has a double potential, it’s up to us what we choose. According to our choice of action and way of seeing the things, the aggressors can ruin our lives or push us to thrive. What’s your choice? 

Love and friendship

True selfless and sincere friendship nowadays is almost utopic. But in order to find such an utopia, first become that utopia yourself. Offer all those qualities which are found in the perfect friend. Be gentle, generous, kind, forgiving, understanding, soothing and nourishing your friends as you would do it for yourself. Do it selflessly and those who don’t qualify for being your friends will disappear by default or they’re going to show their true face, becoming entitled, arrogant, controlling and /or abusive. You will know what to do. The new “weapon” is free flowing of your true being, pure love and selflessness and whoever is not suitable with your flow you can remove by conscious decision or they will disappear themselves because of the energy mismatch.

True friends in this life will definitely not be many, and true friends are united by mutual respect  honesty and unconditional love. True friendship may be the best way to find our life partner. True friends are like-minded, they are complementing each other. As such if you find that person who is able to talk to you for hours and both feel pleasant and enjoy the talk, you should know that whenever physical beauty disappears, the mental, spiritual and emotional will be still there. So if you are falling in love with your best friend, if they are alone and the feeling is mutual, then you are one of very few very fortunate people in this dimension. Treasure and appreciate what you have found because it’s such a blessing from the Universe. 

But as a fire has to be taken care of and maintained by constant feeding it with combustible elements, similarly the true love and friendship has to be enforced by actions, emotions and words! 

Everyone knows nowadays to hurt others, to control or try to, to punish and to do low vibrational deeds, it’s so easy because the realm is mostly polarized towards the negative, but those who fight against the stream, against the “natural tendency” of the world, being humble and honest, loving and caring, understanding and forgiving,.. They’re going to reap the best of the fruits, rare fruits that are very scarcely appearing in the world, named true love and friendship. 

You don’t have it yet? It’s because you haven’t reached that vibration, because we attract what we are. If you attract fake people how does that make you? If you attract angry people, guess why? You got the point. In this world what you want to attract you have to become. You should become that without desire; you don’t decide I want to attract honest people, but you become honesty yourself and you will lose those who are no longer matching your vibration and you will open the gate for meeting people that are on the same page. 

Stop complaining, if you want love, be love yourself! But be aware because if you are throwing pearls before the swines that doesn’t make you loving, but stupid (and loving 😁). If you see that you are offering yourself honestly, free-flowing and people are becoming arrogant and cocky, trying to manipulate and take advantage of you, you block them from receiving your free flow. Otherwise you deserve them. 

Plant before you harvest! Be vulnerable and honest but not stupid! Observe people how do they use your honest approach and your free flow, if they are not freely flowing themselves, fracture will be created and a huge precipice is growing between you too. You can give extra chances if you feel like they might deserve it, but if you see that nothing changes, probably it’s time to say goodbye to them. 

Let go of control otherwise you will encounter control freaks like you. Let go of expectations otherwise how can you meet something extraordinary? Don’t rely on your senses because they’re limited and they can trick you! Rely on your heart, on your inner gut feeling. When you will be talking to a person who is free flowing, your heart will be rejoicing, you will feel home, no matter if you are talking about some important topics or not. 

True friends might be coming to teach us, to scold us, to fight us, especially when you are wrong, because they want you good, they are not afraid to lose you, they are always themselves. Fake friends are avoiding confrontation, they are just minding their agenda and see only their comfort and fun as their purpose in the friendship. 

My well wishes to all of you, and remember to become what you are looking for!

This is what I feel about true friendship in this world, but it is just my opinion so from other people’s perspective I might be mistaken. If you disagree please leave me a message. I would love to hear your idea about this topic.

The dual potential of the experience

Life in its essence is extremely simple and its guidelines easy to follow for an aware being. The problem is that nowadays we are mostly navigating adrift, without a clue in this ocean called life. Everything that happens to us has the potential to destroy us (to drag us deeper into the illusion) or to uplift us, meaning to give us the tools for our conscious awakening, towards realizing who we are and what’s the purpose for incarnating in this particular realm in this particular day and age, but more so: the pain that we are supposed to notice, accept and work with in order for it to become obsolete.

Everything that happens to us is definitely something that we have to experience, especially since it happened already. The first thing we can do to properly address the matter is to accept it no matter how hard it is to do so.

Acceptance itself it’s such a powerful tool that reduces a lot the negative impact of some unfortunate happenings.

When we accept something that happens, we exit already the low vibrational vortex of victimization, whining, guilt, shame and other unnecessary emotions and feelings. If we truly accept something there’s no reason anymore to roam in what happened, we automatically step into the present moment and instead of asking ourselves how would it have been if we would have act or said something differently, – which is useless because that moment is gone, and there’s absolutely no reason to waste your time and energy accusing self or other/-s, trying to project potential other approaches – we should rather accept what happened. So once you have accepted, the “problem” is already half solved.  

Working with own faults, distortions and programs is way easier when those flaws are brought to the surface by a certain life event or triggered by a person in your life. I remember that someone asked me: “Well but how do I work my crap out?” 

The first step is noticing the existence of the “crap”, secondly you accept the fact that it is there inside yourself and that it is affecting your life, your decisions and the outcome of your actions. The worst mistake that we’ve all been through throughout our lives is to blame external actors (aggressors) and situations. Take full responsibility, there’s no other way. The third part is working with it. Accepting the responsibility for that character flaw (like victimization, narcissism, controlling nature, aggression, lying…) and be ready to watch with awareness that particular flaw (for the moment) and decide to consciously stop its influence in your life. One way of working with it would be to notice when was the first time that we remember a similar pain to the one that we’re experiencing in the present circumstance even if the events might look different and unrelated. Then we should start asking, like kids, “Why do I have this pain? Because I feel hurt. Why do I feel hurt? Because I did that. Why have I done that?”… and so on until you manage to get to the root of the problem. Probably it’s useless to repeat that this will not work unless a full openness and truthfulness to self is employed. Most likely the root cause of the problem is some misinterpretation of a childhood occurrence, an over-exaggerated perspective over that early experience. Or it can be even some very serious abuse, violation, violence or even small – totally silly for our mind now- events where we felt ashamed, guilty, abused, raped, betrayed, alone, deserted, sinful and so on… One way of transcending it is to consciously go in to that same situation and look at the actual event happening in front of you, you being the victim (as a child – in that moment) and you being an adult, now, a spectator to the whole drama. Feel that pain fully in your body, accept it if still there, because it will not go unless you are experiencing it fully, getting it exhausted. See it in a very detached way, forgive yourself and whoever was the trigger or aggressor, know that we are supposed to take full responsibility for everything that happens in our lives, and know that nobody is truly a victim. Know that you are lighter now, having a better chance to evolve out of your misery because of that event taking place. Hug that broken, hurt child that is suffering in the replayed memory, cry together if necessary, but then explain the child that everything that we are experiencing is necessary for our further growth and beyond everything that we’ve learned, everything is definitely correct and always in alignment with the Divine construct laws to which our lives abide as everything else in the Existence.

So keep always in mind the dual potential of whatever happens in your life and remember that it’s only us and our reactions to it that truly determines the outcome of that (otherwise neutral life circumstance). We are the only ones self-sabotaging our own lives by choosing always the same path, the old path that we know, the automatic response of the autopilot, the victimized perspective. Letting go with ease is crucial, it’s the choice that defines who we are at the moment. Surrender and let go of everything, embrace challenges, be always ready for change, embrace things that you used to run from, like facing problems, pains, hard work and struggle or new experiences that you would have passed in the past otherwise. In order for you to pick different fruits from your garden you have to definitely plant different trees. Old trees will invariably give the fruits that you already know. Without a new approach, everything will continue as previously, so there’s no one to blame for your life circumstances but yourself, your choices and past deeds. But “blaming” (as a choice of wording) can be misleading, so you shouldn’t even blame yourself. Don’t blame anyone, but instead take responsibility for everything and remember that the secret is in your actions or the lack of them, in what you say or what you don’t say. Study your own being and the knowledge that is scattered in millions of books and individuals, will be unfolding from within yourself with ease. It was always there hidden under tons of unnecessary junk that you started sorting out. You were always That which is the essence of everything surrounding us. Good luck with sorting that huge pile out, I got some crap to work with myself 😁.

I am

Today I feel perfect. There’s no special reason, no activity or food that might have stimulated the release of endorphins,… Not even feeling happy. I just feel complete, at ease, totally fine with what I have and what I lack in my life, hence there’s no missing feeling, no craving neither desire. I feel contentment. Of course due to the fact that there’s no disturbance, no drama we can say, that it’s kind of understandable. So the next target is to feel such feeling even during or after a less pleasant experience, during some emotional up or down.

I write this to remind myself who I truly am, devoid of needs and desires, devoid of interpretation. Life is not good neither bad, it just IS. As such we are neither good neither bad, neither happy nor unhappy. We just are!

Whatever life circumstance we’re in, we are exactly where we are supposed to be, so no need to be sad neither happy about it. What we definitely know for sure is that life is continuously changing, a continuous up and down game that we are supposed to master and when during both the currents we manage to stay still, then a certain evolutionary portal opens up and we find ourselves in a totally new dimension, a totally different paradigm.

I am single yet I don’t miss having someone, it’s not that I wouldn’t enjoy having a partner yet I no longer crave for having one, I am deeply surrendering to life and whatever experiences that I am supposed to be experiencing.

There’s definitely a lesson to be learned out of whatever life circumstance, hence I will enjoy and try to grasp the reason of being alone at the moment. I believe that it’s about self-love, truly selfless and non-narcissistic self-love that is based on the inner contentment that is the very foundation of the existence.

For me it’s a big breakthrough since my whole life I have been always the “doing” type of a person, so letting go of everything and learning to just be, accepting whatever circumstances was very hard. I have noticed that others are naturally less active more prone to inner peace and stillness, so I don’t know what their lesson is. But for my own experience, this is just the next step, the thing that I have to work for. As I realized that whenever we assume that we have reached a certain point of evolution from which we can never go back, the test arrive, exactly like in the schooling system where our knowledge assimilation is tested through exams.

I know from the experience that in the midst of the turmoil it’s very hard to remember that point of inner contentment, that inner peace that no one can take us out of. Therefore I write myself this article to be read in times of distress.

You are perfect, you are complete, you are at ease. Everything that happens is correct. Take full responsibility for whatever is happening and be happy that you are experiencing it. Acceptance and surrender are the requirements for the inner transformation of your perception. Perception(limited) is the very cancer of the spirit, we are continuously interpreting life events, people and whatever else through very limited tools like the 5 senses and previous experiences. It is time to accept everything. It is time to breathe slowly and remain calm, it is time to notice whatever happens from an external perspective as you would watch a movie. It is time to relax and be, instead of acting or reacting. Don’t say things, since when you say things during being angry, sad or under any other emotional effect you might tend to exaggerate and see the situation more acute than it really is. Know for a fact that whatever you experience it is mandatory for you to experience, it is part of the purging of the unnecessary out of your life. Rest right there experiencing fully whatever feelings you have at the moment, without associating your existence with those feelings. SMILE.

Life is testing your qualities in order to see if you resolved the issues that were bringing these situations to existence. Your calm, your patience, your forgiveness, your capacity to let go and to surrender to the life flow are deeply tested. Of course things might look like you are right and you are even right to take punitive actions against those who did “wrong” to you. This is one of the biggest tests that majority fail: the test of righteousness. In reality there’s nothing that entitles us to do harm in any way possible to another being, no matter what they did to us.

You’re in deep trouble? Don’t drag others with you even if you believe that they might deserve it. Let Life take care of everything, do not interfere. This is one of the first thing to be learned, not to interfere, to mind only our life and our choices.

Establishing proper boundaries is not considered wrong, because if we allow people to cross them, then we deserve the place on the evolutionary path that we are occupying. Don’t waste unnecessary time with people that you are not resonating with, just because you are too diplomatic or too educated to refuse them. Know what you want and what’s beneficial for you to do, or to say and act accordingly. If you dream about spirituality don’t separate life in different segments: in the morning when I wake up and meditate I am spiritual then I go to work and take a break from being spiritual.
Spirituality is everything, there’s no separation, let meditation permeate all of your being, may you become meditation no matter what are you doing. Stay aware the whole time and realize old patterns trying to drag you back to the “old” self. Realize that you are exposed over and over to similar situations so that you finally can realize that the same response will invariably bring back the same results that we are not happy with. Change the paradigm your mind is in, start seeing from different perspectives. Innovate with your behavior, try to implement the “spiritual” into the “mundane” and you will realize that there was never this separation, there is no separation between anything. We are all One and the same, we are made of same constituent elements, same energy of life is animating us, the differences are separation. We are Union(Yoga).


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 less 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.

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.

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.
