Why I am here?

Since the beginning of time mankind was fascinated by the question about its origin. Contemplating about ones purpose or reason for being. We mostly learn from observation and other people, rarely do we take the time to contemplate about these kind of questions. But I believe that each of us holds the answer to the purpose of our being.

Trusting Life

Many times in spirituality we hear that one has to have faith and trust life to take care of everything. But we don't trust life, and rightfully so. Because how can we, most of our life we spend preparing for the worst and fearing the worst.With that said I also understand that there is no point in living life unless there is an element of surprise present in life. Surely I want to be surprised and to trust life but I want it to be surprised by the good surprises, I want the good stuff. You know?!

What about now?

Just the other day I was watching a video by Jason Silva on Facebook in which he was talking about learning. Jason was talking about two forms of acquiring knowledge from an article he read by a famous philosopher who described the way we learn. The first way we learn is by description and the second way we learn is by acquaintance or experience. That got me thinking about the decisions we make in life regarding what to do with our lives. Young people…

Now you know

There are two types of thoughts involuntary, spontaneous thoughts and intentional thoughts. An example of an intentional thought is imagination. If I would ask you to imagine a blue balloon, you would create its image in your mind by thinking about it. If I would ask you to say “blue balloon” to yourself in your mind, you would hear yourself speaking in your head without talking. The second type of thought is involuntary thought,…

Who’s Bad?

You are – Compassionate, Loving, Giving, Friendly, Generous, Kind, Carrying, Sharing, Fearless, Confident, Powerful, Abundant, Peaceful, Free, Flowing, Good. How do I know this? You cannot learn how to become any of these things. It is not something that you can obtain either. If you try to learn how to become any of these things it would mean that you don’t see yourself as being such and it would be a forced attempt at best to become…

Everything Works

If life is a stream of passing events how come we spend most of our lives looking to reach some event, isn’t that obvious that once we reach it, that event will be washed away by the stream simply because of the nature of the stream, leaving us again in uncertainty. A change in perception must be made in order to change our attitude towards the stream of life. If a stream is a series of events then it must be treated as such. But unfortunately,…

What’s in your way

It also seems that a need is stronger than a want. Whenever I feel that I need something it is usually backed up by a strong argument or a belief. I may want this or that and I may want something strong enough to go for it, but it will never compare to a desire of absolutely needing something. Ask yourself what do I want, the answer could be anything, love, money, peace, etc. Now, compare between two feelings, the first one is wanting what you want and…

Don’t Think

As I’m about to write another post I find myself planning and thinking ahead what I’m about to say, structuring ideas into words, I come to a conclusion that most of the time I overthink the way I would like to talk about something, so today I would like to talk exactly about that. Thinking, is it really necessary? I was recently listening to Alan Watts talking about how one can experience the outside and the inside world as “One”…

Expiration Date

What is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about death? Is it ignoring thinking about death? The one that fears death fears life. Death is what makes us value life. We cannot experience gratefulness unless we experience the lacking of what we love, or at least imagining the lacking of what we love. Death is what makes us cherish life and embrace everything in life. Ask yourself what is the worst thing that could happen to me? if the…

Tomorrow

Someday I’ll send my love to heal all of my sorrows And when I do I hope to wake up into a new tomorrow What’s so important that I can’t let go of What holds me back from trusting that I’ll be okay The make beliefs I’m playing with became so real It makes it hard for me to see myself beyond beliefs Figuring out the slopes I’ve fallen into Relieves me from the past but what about today? Today I’ll send my love…

Enlightenment

The search for peace, freedom, abundance, happiness, bliss is merely a byproduct, a side effect of being enlightened. Enlightenment is knowing your mind outside of your mind and realizing that the truth is not in your thoughts or experiences. So many of us concentrate on seeking and finding what feels good and liberating, looking for a relief, joy. You need to understand that all these words are simply interpretations of feelings and experiences.…

Perfect

Most of you will answer no to the question – Am I perfect? but why is that? You will immediately come up with a bunch of things about yourself that is currently not to your satisfaction when you think about being perfect. You will think about things that are needed to be fixed first before you can be perfect. Fixing. What is fixing? or more precisely – What can be fixed? Usually, when contemplating about fixing something, we think about…

Arriving

You are never staying in one place you are always arriving. The past has no effect on your arriving, the only time it has is when you give it permission to come with you wherever you arrive. No one can ever blame you, only you can blame yourself by convincing yourself that you’re the one to blame. For the same reason, you can never blame others. You can only judge your past. Even when you judge yourself, you judge your past words, past actions,…

Taking Flight

We cut our own wings before we learn how to fly. We limit our own reach. We set our own boundaries by defining limited destinations. We stop ourselves before we even begin. We think in terms and language that limits our minds and abilities. And then we take action according to the aforementioned limitations and boundaries. Your every thought, idea, every spark that lights your imagination is immediately introduced to a screening process of…

Why we Regret?

The shortest answer to this question would be – We regret because we can’t forgive ourselves. We can’t forgive ourselves for behaving a certain way, making certain decisions, hurting someone, not taking action, not spending enough time doing something we love or being with someone we love. Simply put, regret is basically self-blame. Looking back at what was and concluding that we could have done something differently,…

We are Visitors

We have this feeling of relief, when we’re visiting our family or staying at someone’s house for a couple of days, or when we’re staying at a hotel or any place for that matter that is not our home. Once we arrive at a place like this, we feel relieved in a certain way from certain things. We are relieved because we know that our basic needs are taken care of, such as food and a place to sleep. Usually, we would need to make our own food,…

Me against myself

Why we are making ourselves do what we don’t feel like doing, most people do what they don’t want to do. Why we are ignoring our desires, feelings, suppressing ourĀ emotions with distractions and addictions? Competition. We compete with ourselves. At each given moment whether you’re aware of this or not, each of us has an Ideal, a goal, a short-term, or long-term goal with which we compete on a daily basis. We compete with…
