You receive the clarity when you develop an art of observing life. To observe life is an art. You can try it in this moment.

Just take five minutes for yourself. Stop doing everything only for five minutes, and for this five minutes, bring all your attention to this moment. (more…)

When you experience people, situations, or events in your life, knowingly or unknowingly you have attracted them in your life. Some times the person remains the same, but the quality of person you come across depends on your inner moving energy. You attract the life around you, according to your inner moving energy. (more…)

Ego is part of your individual identity. Ego just means you are on a higher side of life. Nobody can take your place. Every other person should play down to you. At times you are ready to forego your ego. When you come across people, whom you genuinely respect.

To a point, you are ready to lose your ego and put the other person in a higher position. The masters, Guru, teachers, parents, and elders. This too happens to a certain point. After a point, if somebody crosses the line, you are back to your ego. (more…)

Why Meditation & Physical-Exercise, both are Equally Important?

side-angle-sunset

When you see the truth of life, just with the mind, you can never come even near to it. You have to experience the life with the spirit, to realize the whole truth.

The life doesn’t happen at the level of body, brain, and mind, but there are more factors that play a huge role in driving your life and i.e. the spirit and the source.

When you experience life with the spirit, you realize that both meditation and physical exercise is equally important in life.

Physical exercise is not limited to good health and for your overall well-being, but it also helps you to participate more in life. During physical exercise, the spirit moves more and more into the body. It channelizes the spiritual and vital energy and you can make most out of it, in your daily life.

The practice of meditation helps in reversing the process of life. While the physical exercise helps you to channelize your life energy, the meditation helps you to open all the vital chakras of the body, so that the life energy can flow freely within the body.

Whenever you feel stuck outside, it’s never you get stuck in the outside world, but in reality, you get stuck from inside. It’s only when your inner centers open up, you see the outside life with a different perspective.

During exercise, the spirit moves quickly within the body, which results in better blood circulation and heart rate, proper digestive system, and optimized use of the brain in the body.

The physical exercise is necessary for the sound health, but at the same time, the practice of meditation is also required to have clarity of life and to experience peace and silence within. The understanding and wisdom of life come with the practice of meditation.

With the sound health you can chase any of your desires but with the wisdom of life, you can understand when to chase your desires and when to hold yourself back in life. The point of realization when you understand enough is enough comes with the wisdom of life.

The physical exercise has a point of saturation beyond which you cannot move. If you have to travel further, you have to take the path of meditation.

The life is not limited to the physical world, but you also have a subtle world, that requires a subtle path and subtle tool to travel. The practice of meditation is that subtle tool that takes you from the subtle path to your journey of self-realization.

Physical exercise makes you feel good for the moment but doesn’t give you a thorough understanding of life. To experience life as a whole, you have to adapt the techniques of meditation that works well for you.

Physical exercise serves the body, brain, and mind, but the practice of meditation serves you to experience life beyond mind, and the realization of spirit and source which can happen only by practicing meditation.

Meditation is not a dead thing, rather the experiences out of meditation are the liveliest thing you will ever experience into your life. Meditation gives you an experience beyond the mind. With the physical exercise, you can at the most experience life at the level of mind.

Everyone struggles with life and look for the answers of life via different paths, but the one who practices meditation finds all the answers of life in him.

Meditation: The Beginning of a New Life

No way can physical exercise be ignored, because the way to the spirit lies through the body and mind. The physical exercise prepares the body and mind for the deeper realization, and just the little push in meditation can help you to come closer to the real self.

Physical exercise is a ground work at the level of body and mind. Your body and mind go through fire if you exercise every day for at least one hour. These prepare the ground for the deeper realization.

Many even struggle with meditation, as they directly jump into meditation, without preparing themselves at the level of body and mind. They just can’t hold themselves at one place for some time. The whole body becomes restless and they want themselves to remain engaged in one or the other thing all the time.

There should be a balance between physical exercise and meditation. Physical exercise can serve you to calm your body and mind while practicing meditation can serve you to move inward for the deeper realization.

Physical exercise has a saturation point, but with the practice of meditation, you can go on and on forever.

365 Tao: Daily Meditations

The total control over life can only be possible with the practice of meditation.

Meditation gives you a whole mind, with which you can see the life that is happening as a whole. The life is divided no-where from outside, but all the division exists inside. The meditation helps you to move beyond all the division and experience the oneness with the existing life. All the mysteries of life get unveiled with the meditation.

The subtle clothing of the memories that covers your mind, because of, which you don’t experience the truth of life. With the meditation, the subtle clothing of the memories gets lifted, and everything appears to you in its natural form.

Everyday take time out for yourself, and follow the habit of exercising on a daily basis, including the practice of meditation. Both the habit will help you to accelerate your process of growth and evolution, and you will observe your life moving at a higher level.

How to become one with the Natural Process of Life?

4-8.jpg

The life is simultaneously happening both in the external as well as the internal world. To become one with the natural process of life, one has to observe both the internal as well as the external world.

Whether you exercise, follow your diet, work, meet people, go through different experiences of life, face different situations, or events of life, everything you do on a daily basis, influence your internal world. At the same time, if you consciously make the changes in your inner world, you influence the outside situations and events that you are about to face in the external world.We never try to understand the process of life or at-least what goes within the self, and thus remain far away from the true reality of life.

We never try to understand the process of life or at least what goes within the self, and thus remain far away from the true reality of life.

Life is a process, and everything whether it’s our inner or external world, is continuously going through a process. We spend our whole life thinking or imagining things, cursing life, or expecting the life to behave in way or the other, but never try to understand the ways of life.

It’s important that we drop our own individual ways and try to understand how life works?

When you understand the process of life, first thing you realize that the mere information about life will not serve the purpose of life, but you have to become one with the natural process of life. Your body and mind has to participate along with the process of life. Your body and mind has to transcend each day along with the natural process, if you wish to see the necessary changes within your life.

There are seekers who seek enlightenment. They are in search for the truth. Any master they encounter tells them that the truth exists inside, and asks them to seek the truth within, but they don’t know, how to seek the truth. Nobody tells them to go through the process of transformation with their body and mind, so that the absolute truth can be experienced from within.

You don’t have to pull out the truth from somewhere, but the truth already exists inside. All you have to do is, transcend your body and mind to the level, where the truth can reflect within.

Now, to go through the process of transcendence with the body and mind, you have to engage your body and mind with the daily life on an everyday basis.

Life is a process and you cannot achieve anything without being part of the process. You have to become one with the process of life before you experience the truth. Just the information or knowledge will not serve the purpose of life.

When you become one with the natural process of life, you receive the clarity with life. You see the past, present, and future of any situation or event in the moment. You see the creation of life, from its beginning to the end.

With the natural process of life, you don’t have to strive to make the things happen, but as you go through the process, things tend to happen on its own. All you have to do is initiate the process and follow the process till the end, and you see the desired result out of the process.

To become one with the natural process of life, you have to observe both the world internal as well as external. You have to observe the changes that the internal world goes through, due to the influence of the external world and observe how the internal changes influence the external world.

Life is not limited to the external as well as internal reality, and you have much more to explore with life at a subtle level. You can explore the subtle level, only if you become familiar with the changes of both the external as well as internal world.

The way science goes on exploring the atoms and every time comes up with a different truth, in a similar way, when you explore the subtle reality, beyond the surface of the mind, you too come up with something fresh every day, that can give you a deeper understanding of both the external as well as internal world.

The natural process of life follows its own course and has nothing to do with the life that you manifest in the outside world. When you consciously connect with the natural process of life, you create your daily life according to the natural ways of life.

You don’t follow the ways of your mind; rather you follow the natural process of life. With the mind, life remains limited to the desires, but when you live with the natural ways of life, you live to serve the moment, without worrying about the past or the future.

To connect with the natural ways of life, you have to create your daily schedule, if you don’t follow one. Once you have your daily schedule, you have to follow your daily schedule on an everyday basis, and observe it closely.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your schedule and stay open for the necessary changes required to your daily schedule. It’s only by observing your daily schedule of life and understanding different changes with it; you can understand the natural ways of life.

Just by observing and understanding your daily schedule will not do, but you have to participate in life with your body and mind. Each day you have to have something in your daily schedule where your actions trigger your body and mind.

Unless you consciously keep your body and mind active on a daily basis, you cannot become one with the natural process of life. The natural process of life works with the body and mind, and the body and mind have to be prepared for the natural ways of life.

Everyone wants to remain happy all the time but nobody wants to work on the cause of their suffering. When we experience the external reality, it appears that the cause of the suffering exists outside, but that’s not the case.

The cause of all the suffering exists inside, and unless we consciously work on the cause of our pain and suffering, we can never get rid of the pain and suffering.

Happiness is the absence of pain and suffering, but the people go other way round. They search for the happiness but don’t look for the ways to remove the pain and suffering from their lives.

Life is a joyous ride if you become one with it. If you separate yourself from the actual reality and live by your own ideas and beliefs, you call for your own suffering.

All the efforts have to be made in understanding the ways of life and become one with it, and for that, you don’t have to move far away, but start observing your daily life. It’s your daily life that contains the seed of the truth, provided you consciously connect with it, and improve upon it on a daily basis.

Don’t remain caught up with the outside reality but spend some time to understand your inner reality as well.

It’s only when you get familiar with both the external as well as the internal world, you understand the life that works as a whole, with its cause and effect. Here the effect lies in the outside world, while the cause exists in each of us.

Tao Te Ching (Daodejing)

Everyday Connect with your Immortal Self

buddha-wallpapers3.jpg

Everyday take time out to connect with your mortal as well as immortal self. Your body and mind are mortal and you have something else in you that is immortal.

Life is so fragile, that when it comes up with some unexpected event, it becomes impossible to handle those situations and sometimes it breaks the person completely. You cannot wait for the life to make its move and then take necessary action. You have to work in advance.

When you see everything is fine around you, just be aware, there is a problem in your seeing. Life is continuously happening and no moment of life can be taken for granted.

You can’t rely on the things of the mind when it comes to life. The things of the mind are limited to the mortality, while the life as a whole is an eternal process of life. The eternal life can only be known when you consciously take time out to know your eternal self.

Every day all you have to do is, take some time to connect with the self that exists beyond your body and mind. When you close your eyes, you come across the things of the mind. The life doesn’t end there. You never bothered to look beyond the identity of the mind.

To connect with the immortal self, you have to look beyond the identity of the mind and search for the self that gives you an assurance of being part of the eternity.

Both the mortal as well as immortal self-exists in you. When you live only at the level of body and mind, you only live the half truth. The other half-truth always remains hidden from you.

To experience the eternal process of life, you have to connect with the immortal self. Only then you can experience the life as a whole. The process of life gets clear to you.

Along with life comes death. When we miss acknowledging the death, somehow we miss acknowledging the life too. The life and death are two sides of the same coin. One follows the other. If you run away from one, you also run away from other. The only way to make most out of both is by understanding the whole truth, i.e. life and death.

We keep looking for solutions with our personal or professional life, but when you spend some time each day to know the self, you understand what exactly requires in different situations or circumstances of your life. You don’t have to look here and there for information, rather all the understanding comes from inside.

The life can be experienced at a broader length if we are ready to lose ourselves. The life beyond the personal identity can only be experienced, if we consciously direct our energy into that direction.

Most of our lives are spent in petty issues, and when you consciously see your mind, you will realize that, it remains occupied with the things that have no relevance to your life. Most of the time, the mind is lost in others thoughts, which has less or no relevance to your life.

The mind has to be consciously directed in a right direction so that you can experience the truth of life, which exists beyond the present self. It requires everyday effort. With life nothing can be known in a moment, rather you have to go through the inner process, before you come to the realization of the truth.

With life, there is only one thing which is important and that is the truth. You create your life, out of the ideas that you hold for the life. If your ideologies have no relevance with the truth of life, no matter what you create, at the end of the day, you feel left empty handed.

Imagine you start your day, having no clue of what life is all about?

You serve the need of your daily life and when the time comes you to depart; you simply leave the space of this earth. You struggle and suffer and go through all the pains of life, without knowing, why the hell you have been put through all these conditions. You never try to question your existence, but go on living life.

This way of living leads you nowhere.

If the life was such a mystery that it cannot be known ever, then it’s alright to live with one’s own ideologies, but that’s not the truth. When you start living life consciously, you observe that the life that works as a whole has nothing to do with your individual or collective ideologies.

Life has its own process and it follows its process. If you want to become one with life, you have to spend time each day to know life, beyond the personal self.

The truth is possible and you don’t have to look anywhere else besides you. All it requires is a daily conscious effort from your end.

Till the time you perceive life out of your individual perception, your life will remain limited to the mortality. You will remain attached to the mortal part of body and mind and will go through all those pain and suffering, which could have been consciously avoided.

You don’t have to spend your whole life for the truth, but spend some time each day in knowing the self. Spend each day to know who you are and what lies beyond your personal identity. If there is something that exists beyond the present self, then there has to be a curiosity in you to know the truth. You cannot allow yourself to keep away from the truth.

Mortal self is part of the outside life, which is essential for the living in the physical world. But at the same time, it’s also important to realize the immortal self, which not only connects you with the eternal process of life but also helps you to realize the source of life, that exists in you.

How Do I connect with the Natural ways of Life?

windingpath.jpg

We all go through the process of life, but never try to understand life or make any effort to connect with life.

The life that we experience outside is huge, and if some way you can understand, how the process of life takes place, it makes the path easier for you, to go through these process of life without any pain or suffering. (more…)

Give yourself Some time to Adjust to the Moment

Mom-Me-Time.jpg

Life is in the moment, and we have heard these, millions of time, but to experience the truth of it, you have to give yourself some time to connect to the moment.

It takes time for your mind and spirit to get adjusted to the moment. Look at your daily schedule of life. Have you ever bothered to slow down, and tried to connect with the energy and vibrations of the moment?

Life is all about connection. Once you connect with the natural flow of life, you don’t need anything else to take you forward, but the natural flow of life is enough to take you to the other shore. (more…)

How Life Evolved Spiritually and Scientifically in Humans?

600318_415464218504130_642485638_n.jpg

As per Charles Darwin, “Life has evolved and the evolution took place, from animals to humans. When you study the life of a human scientifically, you have only one benchmark to test the progress of evolution, and i.e. the outside world.

The progress in science and technology in the outside world proves the growth and evolution that took place in humans.

The development in science and technology shows the development in the understanding of humans in relation to life on earth. So when it comes to science, the evolution of humans took place in the form of understanding of the outside world.

The more understanding the humans had about the outside life, the more it expanded in the outside world in the field of science and technology.

So the scientific evolution of a human can be seen by measuring the progress of science and technology in the outside world. An individual’s progress of evolution can be noted, with how well he understands the science and technology in the outside world and how easier for him to get along with it.

When it comes to spirituality, the definition of evolution changes altogether.

With the science, the man expands with his mind, while on the path of spirituality, the person moves beyond the nature of the mind.

The path of spirituality not only reveals the truth of science but also reveals the truth of life.

The growth or evolution on the path of science is limited to the mind and also keeps you separate from the whole process of life.

On the path of spirituality, you not only realize your own nature of your mind, but you also realize the life energy that works with the mind and body to carry out the process of life.

Life is not limited to the mind and body, and thus true evaluation of life can never be possible at the level of mind. You have to slip back beneath the mind to understand the actual process of life.

It’s the life energy in you that carries on your daily process of life and the same process of life follows in the universe. You have to move at the level of life energy, or spirit or soul whatever you name it, to understand the actual process of evolution on earth.

The truth behind the life on earth can be realized on the path of spirituality. Life at the physical level grows and evolves on earth out of the understanding of the mind, but the understanding of the mind can help you to sustain yourself with the life on earth, but cannot serve you to realize the truth of life.

You cannot move in the direction of science, as it’s not the absolute truth of life, although it’s very important for the survival of the humans to follow the path of science and technology to develop the life on earth.

But when it comes to the absolute truth of life, every individual has to move inward and search for the deeper truth of life in them, so that the life that comes out of the mind on earth, i.e. science and technology become absolutely clear to you.

It’s good to grow and develop with the science and technology, but one thing has to be absolutely clear to every person, that for the absolute truth they have to move inward.

Whatever exists outside is only for the utility purpose and the real love and wisdom of life will only come from within,

On the path of spirituality, your attention shifts from the outside world to the individual self, and as your attention shifts to the individual self you begin the search for the ultimate truth inside of you.

The search of the ultimate truth helps you to take a shift from body consciousness to the mind consciousness and from mind consciousness to the life consciousness and from the life consciousness to the source, from which the life flows into the body.

The life is divided in you in four parts. The physical body that is visible, the mind that can be experienced inside, but very few are consciously connected to the mind. The life energy or spirit or soul of which you can only be aware, if you look within you and allow yourself to shift from body and mind consciousness. The last one is the source.

The manifestation of the physical body is possible because of the life energy that exists in you. The mind and life energy come from the source that too exists in you and works within the body to allow the process of life to take place through you.

The source of life from where the life of the universe comes, the same source of life exists in you. With the mind, you will never be able to grasp the source of the universe, but if you consciously get on the path of knowing yourself, you will certainly be able to reach to the source of life in you.

When you realize the source of life in you, you also realize the source of life of the universe. The source of life of the universe cannot be different from the source of life that exists in you.

The life of all the scientific exploration remains the half truth unless you discover the true source of life in you. The process of life itself begins with the source in you. From the source come the life energy, and along with the life energy comes the mind and later the same life energy along with the mind forms the physical appearance i.e. physical body.

If you try to understand any part of the universe than the instrument that you have to understand the things of the universe is the mind. No matter what you understand with the mind only remains the half truth, because life begins with the source.

The mind only remains in the middle, while the process of life flows from much deeper self beneath the mind.

Thus to grow and evolve with life in a true sense, it’s important to seek life inside and get on the journey of seeking the absolute truth within. The scientific discovery is good to enhance the outside experience of life, but the number one priority of life should always remain the source of life that exists inside.
