About Knowing Thyself

Did the idea of knowing who you really are ever crossed your mind? And if Yes, what exactly do you look for? Is it about what you think you are or about what others think of you ? Who defines you? Is it you? your family? your colleagues? your friends? or is it your whole society?

Well,  apparently “Knowing Thyself” is a decision only taken by those who seek Truth. In other words, it is a quest for what is Authentic.

Authentic, Timeless, and Real.

I personally took this decision 2 years ago and I’m currently in the middle of the road. But going back in time, when I embarked on this journey, I didn’t think about getting prepared for it. Getting Prepared wasn’t even on my mind!  Naive was I when I thought that going through such an experience would be about constant joy and enlightenment…

Of course you get to experience unique moments of joy that will always remain engraved in your memory, and of course you get to experience delightful moments of enlightenment that keep changing the routes leading to your chosen Path.

Yet the experience is much more complex and intense. Because there will be moments when you’ll feel you’re loosing yourself…there will be moments when you’ll have to let go off the scenarios that no longer serve you..there will be moments when you will have to put all the masks off and deal with the world with your naked truth…there will be moments of vulnerability which you will have to accept and deal with…there will be moments of ferocious war between what you think you are and what you truly are…

It is a risky decision to take, a very brave and courageous one. And only those who breath Truthfulness will rise above and conquer. I don’t mean to scare anyone who’s considering having the experience. Actually it is the one and only experience that will make you literally feel “ALIVE”, otherwise you continue leading  the life of unconscious dormant fellow men. And that my friend is a life half lived, if not lived at all…

But what I would really invite you to do is to think about it in a panoramic view and ask yourself a question:

What does it really take to Know my Authentic Self? 

After giving it a deep serious thought and in case your answer is “Whatever it takes…”, then Welcome to the greater experience of your life 🙂

Postponing Happiness

I’m not Happy… I’m not Happy because my life is a mess, I can’t achieve my goals, I have debts, I live from paycheck to paycheck, I eat junk food, I’m fat, I rarely exercise, I’m not progressing the way I want in my career, I have troubles in my relationships and people can’t even understand me.

I’m just not Happy living this life…

What???!! You want me to be happy Now? Are you blind? Didn’t you hear what I just said? Do you want me to be unrealistic and deceive my own self? What is good about my life to be happy about? I’m not even close to where I want to be!

If I won’t be happy now, when I will be Happy? Well, when I achieve my dreams and goals. Yes Only when I do it…Uhhh, yeah of course I have achieved some stuff before, but it’s different now..I mean now I want different things. What I used to dream of yesterday no longer serves me today…

Yes I know I thought I was going to be happy when I’ve achieved those stuff but…you know what? Even after I did, I wasn’t that happy! I expected to be happier honestly but I just wasn’t…

Oh! Do you want to say that I keep telling myself I will be happy when…….but when I’ll do it, I will not feel that content just like before?

My mind is tricking me, isn’t it? Those stuff I want to achieve will not bring me happiness on their own..is this what you want to tell me?

There will always be something missing, yet there is always more to run after. Kind of a Mirage. An Illusion…

So linking happiness with achievement is an illusion. Happiness is independent. An independent reality. It needs no external resources to be fully experienced.

Postponing Happiness is the illusion. So it’s about taking the decision to be content and happy right now, right here!

Happiness is a Choice I shall make. A Choice I’m responsible for…


Awaken


Journey of an Elusive Mind

August 2008..The journey began: I learnt that I can actually achieve my desires, that I can have the life of my dreams and that whenever there’s a will, there’s a way..I honestly never thought this was possible. For 23 years, I considered life as nothing but a series of progressive steps wherein we achieve something not necessarily related to what we love, or what we care about..we just shoot the ball to get the right score that will allow us to move to the next stage.

And then Somehow it was time for me to realize how narrow my view of life was..Taking into consideration the right messages and reflecting about the signs I kept receiving, Reality started to take another shape. I was able to see gradually everything differently..I realized how vital to have a dream is, how important to believe in something, to hold on to it, a big picture, a Purpose. And then a series of revelations, Aha-Moments, enlightenment preceded.

Seeking Answers for many questions was the journey I found myself in.

Three years have passed, yes, many answers got revealed. Yet more questions are curving their way into my head.

Many events happened to me, many life time experiences got me closer to myself and to the “source”.The Big picture is getting clearer day after day yet I know the journey is still in its very beginning.

And the biggest part of the story I will tell is with my friend and foe: Mr. Elusive Mind.


And One More Thing

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Fear Not…

Fear Not FEAR…just like in a dream you believe everything is real then once awake you realize it’s no longer there. Fear is very alike. When you are afraid, you think threatening fearful thoughts and once you overcome them, you realize how illusionary they were. Fear was there. It existed just like a small flame shaking in the winds. But in your mind you saw it invincible and to intensify the picture you started feeding it  with extra frightening thoughts. Until reality & illusion united. They formed a strong “invincible” alley. You are trapped now. And You suffer from your own perceptions. You then decide not to suffer anymore. You decide to overcome your fears. You can do it! And you actually do it..this is when you start realizing how fear fooled you or maybe you fooled yourself!

The thing is even if Fear is there, do not fear it. It is part of who we are, part of our human imperfections. Accepting it as part of the process will help you break the “invincible” picture your mind draws.

At the end of your life, you don’t want to regret not doing what you wanted to do out of fear…


Don’t give up now…
