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! 

In the end, there can be only One

The experience of the duality of the world has one purpose only: to realize the futility of chasing desires and material pursuits and people. The duality when observed with awareness is containing in it the realization of the Absolute as being the one to be sought rather than illusory pursuits as mice in their wheels. The biggest teaching of this world is the “bad” and “uncomfortable” since these are making us search for a solution, for answers to the question “Why?”. The Absolute, the Eternal is hidden behind the scenes, in the very fabric of all and everything, therefore deciding that “this is good” and “that is bad” is misconception and keeping us far from the realization of the truth.

If the world would have been constructed on “goodness” only, everyone would have been only enjoying their sweet forgetfulness of everything since it’s in our nature that we try to preserve the “good” experience for as much as possible. The mechanics of the illusion are such that a good experience even if it lasts years seems like passing so fast whereas the “bad” experience seems like lasting forever and it is all because of our desire to prolong the “good” and shorten the “bad”.

As soon as the differentiation disappears everything becomes neutral and transitory. In the moment of contraction, of feeling bad which immediately creates the desire to stop it or to run away, the mechanics of the illusion are stretching the time. It may look cruel for someone or something to create a trap like this. But it’s because we are the Ultimate, and we created such an elaborate trap that is capable to keep ensnared the oblivious Divine Beings. Anything less than that would have been like a test that comes with the answers written under the questions. 

It takes huge power of discrimination and dedication to exit the trap that we prepared for ourselves. It’s but a game of hide and seek that has been won already. All the particles of the Divine scattered in all the Realms are going to find one day their way Home. There’s no other way. The only thing that differs is when. But even the notion of time is bounding us when in reality for the Absolute there’s no time or space limitation whatsoever.

Some of us have a call to realize themselves earlier, some want to dive into the illusion more and more and lose themselves. Is there anything correct or incorrect? I believe that there’s no such separation, after all is the individual soul choice plus a certain predestination according to previous existence. In the end, for all of us there’s nothing but coming home, diving back into the primordial Being, into the Nothingness out of which everything sprouted. 

For some it may sound scary , they’re afraid that we as individuals will be gone, since the tiny droplet of water unites back with the ocean of provenance. But that is just the trick of ego, the little self which is unaware of the fact that being a tiny particle devoid of its divinity the whole experience is limited and corrupted, but when we get back to being One with the Absolute, with the Consciousness, then we are one and Many and there’s no differentiation, we are collective, we are there the Ego(knowledge that we are all and nothing – and we are limitless), the very everything that we are oblivious of right now. So holding onto the illusion is one of the smartest tricks of Maya, because it’s like we are struggling to keep ourselves in a tiny box forever, fearful of the unknown instead of experiencing Everything realizing that there’s no time-space boundary nor any other type of other boundaries for the Source.

Just think about it; what an elaborate and complex game of souls we are experiencing; the range of feelings and perceptions, the uniqueness of the experience for each individual. The multitude of interpretations and explanations of the world and its experience by each of us. I am sure that if we would be able to realize that we are watching a very elaborate movie in which we have the opportunity to be actors, spectators, producers, directors and what not… We would definitely remain in awe of the audacity of the Creator to throw such amazing ideas and twists for little pieces of Itself to experience, in order to make them aware of their origin when all the other solutions were proven incorrect, and push them to wake up to their true Selves. 

Chintamani Gem

We are not only living in God, in the Absolute, filling us with it from within and enveloping us and the world from without, but we are continuously exposed to the true liberating knowledge which lays hidden in plain sight, like the sun is always visible in the sky yet we fail to understand its true meaning, nature and existence.

Once we take the hard path to cleaning our being of the unnecessary, Grace makes its appearance and removes certain veils or obstacles just enough to make the journey a bit less than impossible. By cultivating our inner purity, selflessness, patience and humbleness the Knowledge reveals to ourselves and we remain in awe how simple and close to us all was the real information for the whole time. Things that in the past seemed to be gibberish or too abstract for us to even “waste our time” with, are shining bright into our minds and hearts and the true Existence is slowly revealing itself to us.


I am very grateful for all the great people that I have met and for all the amazing scriptures that I got my hands on, it was all made possible by the Grace of the Absolute. There is no mistake anymore. All the “mistakes” and “errors” are but part of the “Plan”, part of the great Revelation of the Almighty. It is so awesome that I have tears in my eyes while writing this and I hope that many of you will reach this point of recognizing the Grace of God in our lives. Many people felt it, wrote poems, prose, and sang their joy, the joy of remembering, the joy of knowing. Through the ocean of writings that exist in this world, there are many gems written by the very Spirit that permeates us all. They are but impossible to find for the unripe soul, even if the scriptures would be in his/her library, they would fail to release their Light (True knowledge) until the time is right and that person proved its worthiness. It is like a story I read about a seeker that found the most valuable and priceless gem in the world and because he didn’t believe himself to be finding that easy such a priceless object although he was looking for it, he threw away his finding and he continued searching for something that he already had in his hands. Eventually he found some bracelet made of shells and colored glass and he was happy to have found that, assuming that that must have been the Gem of gems that he was looking for, yet it was just a trinket.
I will explain this parable, because it is similar to the spiritual seekers, who by Grace may have touched the true Knowledge and / or got to meet the true preceptor but because their mind wants complication, methods and concepts, and because they fail to understand that the true preceptor will not come or look as in their projections and expectations, so they have thrown away their own priceless Diamond and exchange it for many colored pieces of glass and shell shards – fake gurus that have shining attire and mesmerizing talks and shows.

The true seeker, once he finds that gem, puts it inside their heart and mind and hold to that, knowing that it’s by merit and Grace that they were allowed to find that Gem and they will hold it for the rest of their existence very dear to them, knowing that that luminous Gem is their chance to transform into a Gem themselves.

This true Gem, the Chintamani Gem, is getting into one’s life to empower that being (the seeker) into becoming a true effulgence of the Divine Light themselves. The fake ones want the entire shine for their own, disempowering the prey just like spiders catch their prey in their snares and keep them alive to suck their vital energy. Their words may say otherwise yet their actions speak for themselves.

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?

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 😁.

When the hell breaks loose

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hope, the biggest trap! 

I am sure that the majority of you reading this article are going to scratch your heads in disbelief. So I will try to explain my perspective. 

When we hope that something is going to happen in a certain way or the outcome of our actions is going to be the one that we want, we pave the way to diving deeper into the illusion and into misery. 

Before taking birth into this life we’ve seen the things that we are supposed to experience and we agreed with them, believing that it will be like a walk in the park. Unfortunately the problem is that when the soul is not being bound to any physical vehicle (body) we can’t realize how much the pain would be felt in the body, how overwhelmed we might become by emotional pain and traumas, and we’re also unaware of how addictive is everything in this experience. Besides being out of the body means a certain higher level of freedom and a clearer vision of the world and the game that we are about to enter. Most of us fail over and over, because of hope doubled by ignorance. We are just unable to accept things the way they are. We are unable to realize that whatever happens is correct for us and there’s a big realization behind any trauma and “bad” or unpleasant event. I know this myself, yet it’s so hard to break free out of this extremely well-built game we’re living in. 

Hope is the very desire to control, to manipulate life events towards a desired outcome. But what if being in this game with almost no awareness about who we truly are, and what is the purpose of us being here is impossible to grasp? What if surrendering to life and its flow is all we can do? It’s scary, because people are afraid, afraid of the unknown, afraid of events that will shake their lives. But if you are ready to go whatever way life comes, with a smile on your face, then you are definitely on the right track.

Hope is emphasized over and over again by mass-media, and the society in general. It is the warden of our invisible walls jail that we’re inhabiting. Hope is our very strong will and imposition onto ourselves. “I hope that I will get that job”, “I hope that my wife will love me forever “… The silly thing is that we are attached to things and people and by hoping, praying for something to happen we are influencing the outcome of life how it was planned before incarnating this time and we are missing the point hundreds and thousands of lives. 

“I hope that I will get that nice job” . Maybe it’s a dead-end for you, maybe it’s some warm unnecessary stop from the evolution. Maybe by concentrating our creative energy towards achieving that goal we’re missing something better. 

“I hope that my wife and I will be forever together”. 

We are just trying to stop the time and it’s just a laughable idea. What if you don’t project any willpower, you are happy with the wife you are having, yet you are not dependent and you accept that nothing lasts forever and you are surrendering to life and the events that you chose to experience. I am not advocating lacking of vision or promiscuity,.. The things that I am talking about are subtle, they’re happening under the gross aspect of life, so we can enjoy life and its beauty, but recommended not to attach to anything due to the continuously changing characteristic of life.

 We are powerful(without knowing it) and this is the downfall in the illusion, because we are trying to manipulate the game to achieve some minor comfort and we forget that our plan was to experience and expand our limited perspective about life. By praying or hoping towards achieving something, we are lost, we wasted another life and it will happen so until we relax and accept the ride (life) as it comes, without hopes or desire to manipulate events or the outcomes. 

Now there’s this coronavirus fear all over. This makes us automatically infected by hope. We hope that we are not going to catch the virus, or if we catch it we hope that we won’t die,.. The illusion is getting stronger and stronger in its grip by hope. Accept the “reality” as it is, but employ your maximum awareness and flow in life with awareness. If so, you will always know what to do in a certain situation, you will know if and what to do, if and what to say. Just accept this ever-changing nature of life and your existential drama will fail to shake you.

 Hope carries with it desire for a better life, better future, preservation of what we have.. Again attachment. By not being able to fully accept what we’re going through and what we are experiencing at the moment, we are blocking the possibility towards extracting the right essence, the right knowledge out of the situation so we are doomed to repeat the process in this life or the next until the lesson is learned and the true knowledge is extracted and imprinted into our beings. 

Give up hope and build inside yourself acceptance towards whatever life brings and once in many thousands of lives we will start realizing our being and the purpose of our existence in here. 

Are we rushing anywhere?

are we rushing anywhere

If the suicidal person will just give a day or two for that issue to burn itself off, there will be no death by suicide on this planet. I bet many of us had the idea at some point. Yet we are still here, and whatever was the motive that pushed us to take into account such a possibility, it eventually faded away. But in those moments, we love to project, to create monsters out of plain nothing, to feel that everyone hates us and takes advantage of us (victimized perspective), we tend to analyze and over analyze the facts, finding more disturbing (fake) things that we didn’t see before yet there’s nothing there, everything seems darker and darker. It is all our own creation and projection. Nothing is ever good or bad, there is just our analysis on that issue which brings a meaning to the facts. In fact everything is meaningless and time destroys eventually everything: ideas, perceptions, actual people, buildings, planets, stars, you name it. If you are not feeding the fire with fuel and/or it has no oxygen it will turn off by itself. Same with whatever issue you encounter. You feed a problem with your thoughts with your attention to it, with projecting, imagining outcomes, future events. Nothing is there, you are just artificially creating a bigger problem which doesn’t exist. Stop it, divert your mind from it, but come back when you’re calm so that you learn from it. Breathe deeply and you’ll see that whatever it was, it was just a storm in a glass of water.

Watch it, because when you are taking the road to fixing and removing the bad programming in your mind and subconscious, you are opening a Pandora’s box which is impossible to close. Either you walk the path or the path is going to consume you. Many have died trying (literally), it’s a path for the courageous, for the selfless people. It’s a magical path, which can be compared to a marathon but a marathon against various distorted versions of your own self. Be aware. It’s not easy, but it’s not always painful either. And it all depends on the perspective, so have no perspective, don’t judge the situation anyhow, accept everything comes your way lightly.

I would like to tell a small story about perspectives: One Buddhist monk sat under the tree where Buddha was said that attained enlightenment. That tree was a special tree and sometimes it was a path of communication between the true seekers and God. So this monk, looks above and asks:
– In how many lives I will attain enlightening?
God answers:
– You see, my son, count the leaves of the tree and as many lives it will take you to reach the enlightenment.
– This is horrible, said the monk and starts running while screaming and whining.

A second monk comes and sits under the tree and asks the same question.
The answer invariably the same.
– Thank you, that’s great… and he starts jumping like a child, claping hands and laughing… so I will get my enlightenment after all…
In that same moment the monk got enlightened.

You see, both monks received the same answer but each saw it in a very different way. Life is always according to the individual perspective and perception through own veils. And the one with no expectations received the boon that was promised after thousand lives. So like this in life, one has to learn to let go. Letting go of everything: expectations, people, hopes, desires, addictions, bad habits… But there has to be a vision, a Higher Vision, a goal that is beyond any tiny little mundane ambitions. And being patient and understanding that it may take a lot of time, may shorten actually the time of waiting and transforming oneself may come sooner than expected. The funny part is that whoever is rushing and wants things fast, will just run like a tiny mouse in a hamster wheel, pointlessly, since you can’t make anything happen before the time is right. You can never trick the Higher Self, the Universal Consciousness, you can just arm yourself with humbleness and patience and maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

See, this self-improvement road is a very long and bumpy road, but by Grace, you are supported, even when you think you are not. You are loved and supported and above all watched. Start on this route with no expectations whatsoever. Just desire to be a better version of yourself and many boons are given without even you noticing. Like in a game when one player reaches the end of the level, he gets points and rewards, because after all this life is just a game, and the only certitude in this game is that at some point everyone surrenders the body.

If we make the boons our destination, we are just caught in the power game, and that same power which we may be dreaming of having will eventually destroy us.

So, you think is there anywhere to rush?
