This planet is so exquisite that offers us the stars, the trees, the flowers, the mountains, the river, the rocks, and all living things. It is a perfect place for us to start living in its beauty and joy. The life of let go is the life where nature will flow through you. You start seeing many shades of green, not just one shade of green. Your sensitivity is so heightened that you can make very subtle distinction in the green of one tree and the green of another tree; not all trees are same green and not two leaves are exactly the same green. It depends on you if you live consciously in this world. The moment you go beyond your mind, you suddenly become a mirror, then you reflect reality. Within the mind, you project reality, you don’t reflect. Mediation is one way to getting out of the mind, beyond the mind and into your heart. You will be absolutely certain that transcendence is happening and you will start seeing the beauty, the authenticity, the sincere even in those are not beautiful, not truthful. It does not matter; there’s only one important relationship is between you and your inner being.
Naturally, you can see something beautiful, but trust in it only when you start seeing that beauty everywhere, when the whole of existence becomes beauty. The ancient seers of India have described existence in two way. One way they have called satyam shimva sunderam. Satyam means truth, shivam means good, and sunderam means beautiful. This is one expression of the ultimate experience. The other way is sat chit anand. Sat means the truth, chit means consciousness, and anand means blissfulness. Both are right and it depends on you to see through reality which is subjective or through our projection which is objective. Once this is understood, tremendous changes are possible. You will not throw tantrums at others, you will become more centered, you will become more subjective and introvert. Once you are centered in your being, beyond mind, then you can see the world as is.
There is no guilt and condemnation as you don’t judge yourself and others. “Don’t judge” simply means that no action gives us the right to condemn another person. Don’t take the person’s dignity, don’t humiliate him and don’t make him feel guilty. We naturally judge ourselves because we crave for the perfection which doesn’t exist from the first place. We dwell on that imperfection and retaliate with ourselves and the whole world. This leaves us with only one idea and that is to find imperfection in everybody. How we treat others is a direct extension of how we feel about ourselves; how we treat ourselves and vice versa. Once we stop judging ourselves and accept ourselves, we will be able to accept others also because we will have a clear insight that they are suffering from the same disease. Our accepting them will help them to accept themselves. They learn the beauty of acceptance for the first time; how peaceful it feels and they start accepting others. If the entire humanity comes to a point where everybody is accepted as he is, almost ninety percent of our misery will simply disappear.
We are living in mediocre society. The reason most people get stuck in mediocrity is because they refuse to fail. The reason people refuse to fail is because they associate failure with defeat. Their fear of defeat paralyzes them to the point that they won't move forward. People are not finished when they're defeated; they're finished when they quit. Through out history, the world has been destroyed by wars. What are the causes of war? Wars are generally begun by a revisionist state seeking to take territory. The psychological root of revisionism is the yearning for glory, honor and power. Human nature is the primary cause of war as they feel it is exciting, whereas peace is boring. People indulge in personal dramas and traumas, and when they are not indulging them, life is a bit flat. If a man who has not known inner peace is forced to live peacefully, he will attack or destroy his own being. Even that will provide some excitement. Excitement is a great nourishment, but only the right kind of excitement is nourishment. The wrong kind of excitement is poison. And up to now humanity has been dominated by the wrong kind of excitement. We are surrounded so much by the mind and its turmoil, we never come to hear the still, small voice within us. There is no thought in the mind and in that nothingness, you come to know, for the first time, the taste of peace. To enjoy peace is to enjoy silence, to enjoy something that is within you and you do not have to depend on others for.
Life is a benediction if you follow and move according to the Law of Balance. When you become sad, miserable; don’t try to fight it. It is there to show there’s some misalignment on your path. Don’t dwell on it but continuously shift to gain the balance back. Just like meditation, it’s not something we do once and done. We need to keep practicing, keep breathing, one breath at a time. You succeed in being in that state of silence, peace, blissfulness so you are feeling good. Don’t ask for more. Absorb it! You have gained, now let it be, enjoy it. Live it! A true inner transformation is happening and you will see a different dimension comes to your inner space, inner being.❤️
