13395133_1710044852594053_872096871_n

The act of observing life is to see. Very few people know this truth that with the mind you can see life. The mind is not limited to the thinking or imagination, but mind can also have an ability to see through life.

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…)

Am I the Body, Mind or Spirit?

There are many who relates themselves, with how they appear, which is fine in terms of presentation, but if your physical body becomes your identity than you simply disconnect from the truth of life and creates your life around the illusions.

Am I the physical body?

What if somebody takes down one of my hand, do I still remain?

What if somebody takes down both of my legs, do I still remain?

That means the physical body is part of me, but I exist more than this physical body. The physical body that you have is an addition to your personality and not your limited identity. (more…)

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)

Single-task or Multi-tasking from psychological and Spiritual perspective.

Trading-Patience-Time1.jpg

A single task is to do one thing at a time. Multi-tasking is to stay engaged in more than one project at a time. Multi-tasking doesn’t only limits of doing more than one tasks at a time, but it also includes, staying engaged in more than one project at a time.

Some people believe in multi-tasking and hold an idea, about getting more things done in a lesser time, while the people who do one thing at a time, feels more connected to the moment, and like to shift from moment to moment. (more…)

Meditation: The Beginning of a New Life

Excerpt from the Book: 

Chapter 2.) How to Meditate?

This is the simplest query in appearance, but when you get into its practicality, the same question becomes the most trivial question for millions.

Before you understand, how to meditate and apply into your life, there are basics in relation to the practice of meditation that needs to be clear.

The first thing that needs to be clear before you initiate into the process of meditation is, whenever you experience life through any of your senses, you don’t experience it with the senses, but senses are just an instrument for the mind to experience outside life. That means, whatever you experience in the outside reality, you only experience through your mind and the bodily senses, are just an instrument for the mind to experience outside reality.

Second thing, the mind is a subtle body inside, that is separate from the physical body and can be consciously separated from the physical body in deep meditation.

Third thing, the act of meditation is to know one’s mind with the mind.

In meditation, you know and understand mind with the mind. To understand the truth of the universe, you need to take your attention inward and move deeper beyond the surface reality of the mind.

When the mind is directed in the outside reality, you accumulate all the different experiences and impressions of life, inside your mind.

In meditation, when you take the attention of your mind inward, you experience the same outside experiences and impressions of life, inside. The practice of meditation helps you to reveal your own personal identity and the truth beyond it. You come across your own life, that you have lived and accumulated from the past.

With the practice of meditation, no truth of life can remain hidden from you.

Chapter 3.) Be an Observer in Meditation

You watch movies. What you do, while watching movies, you see. Every movie has its own story, plots, scene’s, characters, and actors. Every story of the movies has its own drama, romance, comedy, action, thrill, suspense, and emotions.

You also have your own movie inside your head. Every movie has its own past or background. When you become an observer of your own movie, you also start understanding the past or background of your movie.

When you see your movie, inside your head, you see it, from the beginning to your present stage of life. Slowly by observing the story of your head, your own movie becomes clear to you.

When you go outside to watch the movie, you can’t interfere, but all you can do is simply watch. In a similar manner when you observe your own movie in meditation, your role remains to be an observer of your movie.

If you wish you can interfere with your movie, but when you start interfering, you stop the process of understanding your movie.

First thing, you need to practice during meditation is to become an observer of everything that goes inside of you. Only then you can understand your whole movie and its past, present and more likely the future, written by you.

Your role in meditation is to observe everything that goes into your head. Just by observing the story of your mind, it starts to become clear to you.

Chapter 8.) The Ultimate Purpose of Practicing Meditation

When you practice meditation, you always wanted to know, what is the ultimate purpose behind it?

There is a lot, that has been talked about meditation and anyone who initiates into the process of meditation also held’s lots of expectations from it. Meditation is a doorway to realize the source of life in you. No truth or experience remains to realize beyond the life source.

The practice of meditation has the power to take you beyond the periphery of your mind and make you one with the truth. You reach the destination with the realization of the source. Life becomes absolutely clear to you.

All the puzzles of the mind, all the queries of this life and after life get resolved with the practice of meditation. No mysteries or puzzles of life remain unresolved for you.

No matter what you are seeking with life, but when you get on the path of meditation, you come to an end of the road. Nothing is required other than meditation, to go through this path of life. The meditation is the last path. With the meditation, you come to an end of the road.

It’s only with the meditation, you realize that there is no-where to go, and nothing to seek in life. Everything exists in you and you are an end in itself.

Chapter 9.) Your Dreams reveals the making of Life in you

Everyone sleeps and in sleep you see dreams. When you dream, you are actually part of that reality. When you dream, the dream doesn’t remain a dream, but it becomes your reality for that moment.

If you closely observe your dreams and move deeper and deeper into it, it can reveal the making of life in you.

When you wake up, what you saw as a dream was some pictures in the mind. You were part of few situations, where you were actually living the reality. Unless you wake up, you cannot realize it whether it was a dream or a reality.

When you wake up, you remember some pictures from your dream. Those pictures reveal everything of the dream. Now, these pictures are nothing but your thoughts and imagination. If you observe them closely, you will find the similarity between your dreams and your daily experiences and impressions of life.

You cannot dream something that your mind is not familiar with. The mind forms dreams, desires, thoughts and imagination using different composition and mixture of your daily experiences and impressions of life.

In your dream, you are present but as a part of your dream. You become one with the dream. You cannot exist separate from your dream, otherwise, your dream perish. Your dreams can only exist in your absence. The time you regain your presence, dreams elapse.

Chapter 11.) Truth (Direct Experience) Vs Belief

Everyone is looking for magic with life, and if you ask me, where is the magic, I will direct you towards meditation. Meditation is the father of all the magic of life. All your illusions, and all your chaos and all your problems with life, is only due to, not knowing the truth.

The time you realize the truth, all the illusory ideas simply shed away from the mind. Whether we believe it or not, our lives are surrounded by our past beliefs. We create our lives out of our beliefs. If you go in-depth of any aspect of life, you will realize that everything that you have created till now is less out of an experience and more out of beliefs. There are very few, who sit down and analyze their lives.

If you go in-depth of any aspect of life, you will realize that everything that you have created is less out of an experience and more out of beliefs. You have only followed the tradition, be it your personal life or say professional life. There are very few, who sit down and analyze their lives.

Even when you inquire about the truth, you still follow your beliefs of the mind. It’s hard to get rid of the barriers of the mind. The personal identity and the memories of the mind that you consider as yours, is the only barrier that keeps circling the mind.

From the religion to personal life, from professional life to our social life, everything is created out of beliefs. We don’t look for direct experience; rather we simply follow what already exists from the past. This simply separates us from the truth of life.

Life exists in the moment and has no relevance from the past or the future. It’s only when you live out of the beliefs of the past or thinking about the future, you separate yourself from the truth of the moment, and start living out of the projections of the mind.

We never enter into the fresh future; rather we only stretch our past beliefs into the future. Our entire castles of life are built on the beliefs of the past. Sometimes our intentions are honest, with different aspects of life but it again serves the age-old beliefs of the past. Till the time, you don’t question every aspect of life and realize the truth of it, you only create your life out of beliefs.

On the spiritual path, all the teachings revolve around dos and don’ts, and more often, there are don’ts.

The Cause of Suffering in Life

17189771375_40e5a586bc_o.jpg

Do pain and suffering comes from outside, or every individual is responsible for his suffering in life?

If the pain and suffering come from outside then you cannot do anything about it, and you have to live with it. If that is life than the life is not worth striving for, as it’s full of pain and suffering, but that’s not the truth of life.

The truth is something else that we all have to seek. It’s only the seeker looks within. Rest of us, remain caught up in the chaos of the outside world. (more…)
