You perceive the external and internal reality with the mind. The body and its senses are an instrument for the mind to experience life. The mind is separate from the brain, heart and body and that can be realized with the inward attention.
With the inward attention, you can move deeper into the space of the mind, whereby, you can realize the separation between the mind and the body. The physical body here includes your whole physical appearance.
You perceive yourself, the way you look from outside, but that’s not your true reality. The truth needs to search inside.
The mind is a pure awareness field, where the play of the external and internal life takes place.
The mind has an enough empty space inside, where the subtle reality gets formed and destroyed. Unless you realize the empty space of the mind, the empty space goes on creating the subtle reality inside, and you keep on moving into the circle of life.
With the inward attention, you can realize the base of the mind and experience life from that space. Once you begin to experience life from the base of the mind, you can notice the experiences and impressions in the subtle world floating in the empty space of the mind.
The eyes are the microscope to see the external world. The mind can look at the external reality through the senses. All the impressions or experiences of the external reality, however, big or small gets captured and stored in the empty space of the mind.
You can experience life directly from the base of the mind, where no internal or external reality exist rather the perception of life stays fresh in the moment.
From the base of the mind, both the internal and the external reality can be viewed with the absolute clarity. With the base of the mind, life arranges and rearranges itself satisfying the need of the moment. The natural order of life serves the moment.
When your attention remains outside, and you have no clue of, what’s happening inside, you create life, out of the experiences and impressions that’s floating in the empty space of the mind. You only choose what is available on the surface reality of the mind, but you never realize the deeper truth of life.
The base of the mind is not the ultimate truth of life, but the deeper truth exists beyond the base of the mind. The base of the mind too has its source.
With the base of the mind, the movement of life energy or spirit can easily be noticed working through the main nerves of the physical body. All the functions of the physical body don’t happen on its own, but you have the higher force in the body, i.e. life energy or spirit, that works through the main nerves of the physical body to allow the smooth function of the physical body.
The sensation you experience in the body, s the result of working with the life energy in the body. Without the life energy, you cannot experience the sensation in the body.
The life energy and the mind are interconnected and holds its source deep within. The life energy and the mind can be detached from the main nerves of the physical body in deep meditative state, and once the life energy and the mind gets separate from the body, it moves towards its source. The experience of source, life energy and the mind together is termed as the state of Samadhi in the eastern tradition.
The mind is subtle clothing that covers the whole physical body from inside.
The life energy or spirit is the subtle thread that works through the mind and the main nerves of the physical body to carry out the functions of internal and external life. The life energy doesn’t enters the physical body but it only works with the main nerves of the physical body to carry out the functions of life.
The subtle reality can be deceptive, if your attention only remains in the external world. The subtle reality gets formed from the individual perspective, but the life works as a whole. The life as a whole has its order, while the individual perspective can only perceive life, out of its perception. An individual’s perspective is bound to be deceptive.
The best way to understand life is to understand one’s own perspective towards life and rise above it. You have the higher intelligence in you, that allows you to perceive life, beyond an individuals perspective.
The attention on the movement of life energy that helps you to understand the natural order of life. The life energy is part of the eternal process of life and works exactly the way, the process of life works as a whole.
The role of the mind is to remain an observer, with the process of life energy. Unless you understand the nature of mind and the life energy, it’s not possible to understand life. The life happens at the level of life energy and mind. The physical body is an instrument through which the life energy and the mind work to allow the process of life to happen.
The physical body is an instrument, and the life energy is not in your experience, so one thing that is available to you, to understand, and i.e. the mind. Once you understand the nature of the mind, you understand the whole process of life energy, mind, and body.
Once you understand your inner process, the process of the universe too works the same way. Even the process of the universe can be realized, once you understand the nature of your mind.
The mind can only be understood with the attention of the mind. It’s the mind that understands itself. The mind can be understood with the mind.
It’s the inward attention that takes you into the depth of the mind.
Both the external and internal reality can be understood inside, and the best way the understanding of both the world comes to you is at the moment of observing life.
The word realization means to realize. Your effort is not required, but your presence is needed at the moment. The effort is only needed for the cleansing of the body. If you have a healthy body and clean eating habit then your presence in the moment is enough and the truth will be revealed to you.
The truth is already there, but you are not available to experience the truth. You are lost somewhere in your dreams and desires.
It’s hard to digest this truth of life, but all the dreams and desires of life can be only realized once you understand the nature of life. Once you understand how the life unfolds both in the external and internal reality, in those moments, you truly understand the real needs and wants of life.
Your dreams and desires are nothing but the past experiences and future imagination floating in the empty space of the mind.
Once you really understand how the process of life works in you, then you can pick that is essential in the moment, and move on savouring different experiences of life, without striving or pushing or pulling with life.
With life everything can be savoured with absolute detachment. You experience both the external and internal reality and even form the desire, but you don’t unnecessary push life to make the things happen. You allow the natural process of life for the manifestation.
There is no way to go somewhere else but to experience life in this moment. There is no other life exists beyond the experience in this moment. You experience life here and now.
The awakened one’s experience life in the moment, while the people caught up in their mind goes on chasing their tales with the past experiences or future imagination, never bother to understand and experience life in the moment.
