The Questions Are Mine

These are not questions. Call them interrogative statements of wonder, inspection, puzzlement..

– Why do we struggle to see the picture clear?

– Why can’t we clearly listen to the truth echoing in our hearts?

– Why don’t we trust the voices of our instincts?

– Why don’t we act upon our true beliefs?

– Why do we choose our own stagnation while we strive for real change?

– Why do we hold on to our griefs while all we want is to be happy?

– Why don’t we change what we keep condemning and criticizing?

– Why don’t we get out of our own buble and envy those who do?

– Why do we ignore the heart when it cries out to be heard?

– Why do we ignore the soul when it burns to be freely expressed?

– Why do we ignore the body when it keeps sending us signals of exhaustion?

The Answers are yours…


The Battles Within

If you are tired of fighting the problems that keep showing up in your life, struggling with people or circumstances..if you feel like everything you wanted is taking a different path than yours and you became stuck in a place you don’t like..if you think you’re trying your best to do the right thing and do things right yet you still hit the wall..if you started to believe that everything got out of control and that life is a bitch.. You have just fallen in the deep down hole made by your worst enemy: YOURSELF

Of course you are wondering how come? you cannot be fighting against yourself? it doesn’t make sense..it’s easier and simpler to believe that people are fighting against you, circumstances as well, or any other external factor whatever it might be. But the hard truth is: We create the battles in our minds, we distribute the roles of the play, we act accordingly until we get so drained by the play’s events that we forget it was of our own mind creation..

The game stars within..here..in our minds. By nature, we tend to be happy and joyful..but with fear showing up on the surface, we become defensive and tend to protect this nature .Unconsciously, by this act of protection, we allowed fear to penetrate our hearts. It’s this fear that creates all the battles, all the fights, all the struggles. We are afraid to lose ourselves, our hopes, our dreams, our happiness. And the more we let the fear take over the steering wheel, the more our battles get bigger, stronger, harder, and tougher.

So start by admitting that YOU are your first and single battle. Then work on yourself by aligning your nature with your desires. In other words, decide upon what you want to do with your life and believe you can do it. When you believe, it becomes easy to create the habits, the tasks, and the life style that will lead you there. A burning desire and a strong belief will keep you up there defeating your inner battles against Fear and freeing yourself from its chains.

In life, you don’t get the chance to play again . It’s a one time shot! and you know within yourself that it’s not worth all these struggles.

Life is actually simple and always calls for us to enjoy its company..So don’t be fool and reject the invitation!


Don’t Bury the Light

Legendary Pink Floyd – The Wall, “Hey You”

Hey you

Out there in the cold

Getting lonely, getting old

Can you feel me?

Hey you

Standing in the aisles

With itchy feet and fading smiles

Can you feel me?

Hey you

Don’t help them to bury the light

Don’t give in without a fight


Revelations

This morning, I heard the voice again, not the voice of the mind, the other one, that comes from deep within..This is the voice that talked to me a few months ago and told me a confession that appeared to be true today..This voice is incredibly authentic when it starts talking and it is also filled with love and honesty. I can sense its transparency..What is weird about it is that, unlike the voice of the mind, it doesn’t need external justifications or analysis, it just says what it knows. I tried to corner it to know the source of its knowledge, it didn’t seem to be bothered by my question though! and it answered simply and truthfully: I just know…What a great confidence and groundedness this voice had! When my imaginative mind tried to give it a face or a shape, it appeared to be like an old Indian guru sitting comfortably in his meditative reflective position with a big fat smile on his face…

Back to what it told me today, it hit me with a simple but powerful reality: What if all the struggle you have been through is part of your learning process? What if it’s exactly what you need to go through to eventually get what you are aspiring for? What if all these hardships are nothing but the door steps to your dreams?

Normally this crap wouldn’t make sense..but it did! yes it did, it made perfect sense and presented the KEY to the persecutor “me” that was heavily active throwing me accusations and judging me all the time..This naive but wordly-wise, simple but complex insinuation revealed the big picture to me…the picture that I was trying to figure out lost between its many small pieces.

Then What?

Simply this small self-revelation is inviting me to accept what is, embrace it, and always look beyond…
