The life cycle is a daily process of life. Each day you have different situations and events to experience, which leads to future events and the life cycle go on and on and on.
With the mind and senses, life is experienced outside in the form of situation, events, and experiences of life, but it’s subtle impressions get created and formed inside. To break the life-cycle is to have an experience of your subtle life that exists inside, and rise and move to the source of it.
When you realize the source of life-cycle within you, the process of life-cycle still continues, but you become a spectator of it. You participate but as a spectator. When you can realize the life-cycle within you, and understand the process of it, you can consciously choose to enter and exit the life-cycle. To move out of the life-cycle consciously is what defined as a moksha or liberation in the eastern religion.
There is no life, other than this world, and you understand the process of life on the existence, once you understand the process of life, that goes within you.
“Self-realization is a state of mind, where you rise above your life-cycle and consciously participate in it.”
Life seems complex when it’s out of order. Mess or chaos is part of the mind. At the state of self-realization, you put your mind in order, and everything around you begins to fall in place.
The highest experience of life is to experience the source of life within. With the experience of the source of life, you rise above the life-cycle. You come back to life, but now you become one with the process of life. The mind gets clarity about the process of life, after the self-realization.
At the level of mind, the life remains limited to a different situation, events and experiences of life, of the outside world, and unless you ask yourself, the purpose of existence or source of life, you only move into the circle of life.
Life-cycle is a continuous process. With the mind, you go on moving into the circle, to fulfill your obligations with life. You fulfill one, and other appears. You go on moving into the circle unless you make a conscious choice to rise above it.
There is no way to move anywhere else, with life. The kingdom of heaven and hell is on this very earth and there is no other life than what you are experiencing right now. You find the angels, and devils on this very earth, but still, it’s important to know the purpose of your existence. You cannot go on living, without knowing why do you exist, or what’s the truth behind life?
Once you realize your own truth out of experience and not in any form of information, all your queries related to God, Soul, spirit, or the process of life gets resolved.
Before you rise above the life-cycle or break the life-cycle, you have to observe and understand your life-cycle. Each one has his or her own life-cycle, and life-cycle is nothing but your daily situation, events, and experiences of life.
This is a life-cycle where you are simply moving into a circle. One situation or event leads to another and you again run the next day to catch those events or situations of life.
“The wisdom of life is to understand the life-cycle, that is going on in you, and not outside. It goes within your mind and makes you repeat the same circle of life over and over again.”
The process to understand the life cycle begins when you observe your daily life. You observe your sensation into different situations and events of life. You have to be prepared to go through all the pain and pleasures of life, in the present moment.
With the mind, you are either living your past or creating your future. Even you experience pain, it’s because of the past, and if you feel good, it may be, because of the future, but you never experience life, as it is, in the present moment.
“If you are really present in the moment, you don’t experience pain or pleasure, but only experience sensation.”
You want to run into the future. Your movement is, for the future. You want to either get rid away from the past, or you want to create the better future, but anyway, you are not experiencing life in the moment, within your mind.
Life-cycle is happening within your mind, and it works through the body through sensation. If the mind shows the past or the future, you still get the sensation, according to the imagination, that your mind creates, of the past or the future.
The present is present. It has no relevance, with the past or the future. With the present, life is happening without the interference of mind. Your expectations break only because of your mind. Your mind looks into the present situation, either in comparison to the past or with the expectation of the future. It never looks the situation, in its natural form, and this the cause of all the suffering.
If you are really present in the moment, you do whatever is possible, to serve the moment, and leave the rest to life.
The present moment is all about sensation. No thought, or feelings or emotions, but the sensation. The sensation allows you to experience the present moment, and with the sensation, when you rise above the mind and move deep into your being, you experience the source.
You not only experience life through sensation but because of the sensation, you are tied up with the life-cycle. To understand the life-cycle, it’s necessary to understand your daily life situation and to understand the situation, it’s necessary to understand the different movements that take place within you, through sensation.
By observing your daily life, you connect with the sensation within you and once you connect with the sensation, you experience all the different situations and events of life that take place within you, in the subtle world.
Whenever you get into the pleasant or unpleasant situation, the mind goes on thinking about the same situation again and again. Now that’s your subtle world, where all the process of mind takes place.
More you move inward, into the subtle world of thoughts and imagination consciously, slowly your sensation begins to move into the deeper realm, beyond the subtle world of your mind.
You have to experience within you, the source of life. Later you transcend yourself to the same source and experience the entire process of the subtle world, i.e. your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and sensations within the body.
The nature of the source within you is exactly the same as the nature of the creator of an existence. The source within you is part of the creator. From this space, you can experience the entire life of within, and outside as a mere spectator. You get an insight into your own life and the life that is happening around you, by being with the source.
When you come back to life from the source, you feel fresh and rejuvenated. Once you experience the source within you, it takes time for the mind to understand everything that takes place inside, and slowly the wisdom of life is revealed to the mind. It takes time for the mind, to have absolute clarity with the inner process.
The bliss and wisdom are possible only with the source of life, and at the level of mind, life can only be lived well, with the proper understanding of one’s true self and the creator. Otherwise, it’s easier to get caught up in the life-cycle and simply taking the circle with life.
