Pure Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love 080118

Early morning of 8th Jan 2018, a dream happened that a human body wearing checkered pants and coat (like a Scarecrow) was flung high over the edge of a Giant Gorge and it fell deep into it. It had a soft landing as it fell into the narrow river in the bottom of the Gorge. It did not die but it was damaged.

Woke up with a start and the revelation was that this was our Ego that was discarded, not completely, because it did not die but was damaged. Implying that it is not easy to discard our Ego fully!

What is left behind by the Ego that departs is ‘Pure Unconditional Love for everyone and everything in the Universe

Only when we uncover the limitless Brahma or Super-consciousness (veiled by our Self Identity or Ego) within us that we can exude unlimited Energy, Peace and unconditional love. – The Totality 280120 *

Best advice to live Life fully now

Almost everybody is caught in some vicious circle or other – because mind (ego) cannot exist without a vicious circle. Somebody eats too much, gathers fat, becomes worried, starts dieting, fasting, eats less, feels hungry, becomes worried, starts eating more…and so on and so forth.

Man exists like the pendulum of a clock: it goes from one extreme to the other extreme…. When the pendulum is going to the right, in fact, it is gathering momentum to go to the left and vice versa. This is the vicious circle, very subtle.

Learn the middle way. Learn the golden mean. Learn to remain exactly in the middle. And once the pendulum stops in the middle, the whole clock stops. If you stop in the middle, the mind (ego) disappears. Mind (Ego) is time, the clock.

One has to stop exactly in the middle. And it is very, very simple if you understand. Be natural, Be spontaneous. Be simple. When feeling hungry, eat. And when not feeling hungry, don’t eat.

pretty-woman-with-cucumbersBe just ordinary, and see the beauty of being ordinary. Just be simple! Neither worldly nor other-worldly, neither materialist nor spiritualist, neither against money nor for money. Just be simple and natural! Just accept whatever is. and move according to your natural capacity, potentiality.

And don’t decide a program for your life. Be moment-to-moment. Don’t make a schedule. Don’t make a style. Don’t create a character! Just slowly, slowly moment-to-moment moving, living, challenging, accepting, responding, slowly, slowly great awareness arises. And one starts coming closer and closer to the middle of it all.

And the day it happens, when you are exactly in the middle, mind (ego) stops. And to be beyond mind (ego) is to be in God.

You are not to become indulgent, you are not to become celibate. You are not to create any structure upon yourself. You have to live without structure, with consciousness, with creativity, with sensitivity. And you have to live moment-to-moment, with no ideals, with no perfectionist neurosis. And the great day is not far away when suddenly you will find the pendulum is not moving either way.

That day, Satori happens. The first glimpse of the eternal beauty and benediction of nature descends in you. You are uplifted. Grace has arrived. Grace is the beginning of God.

A great and the strongest way to be, is to lock into and be alive in the now, the present moment, without any interference from our Ego; bury our Ego’s past fully so it does not percolate into the present and not let our Ego plan for the future, trusting Totality for our future, which can and will bring forth many surprises! – The Totality

Negativity of our Ego

Our up bringing unfortunately helps us to build a lot of negativity in our Ego. So much so, our Ego fears the future and is often afraid in the present moment too.

ID-100184625 Woman with a headache 170816As children we have been told, do not run fast, you will fall and hurt yourself. Do not touch dogs or other animals, insects etc as they will bite you. Do not trust others; do not accept sweets or rides or let others touch you, learn to save for the future, implying that we may not have enough money in the future. If you do not study well, you will fail. If you do not get admission to a good College or University, you will not get a good job, and you will not be able to maintain a good standard of living.

We are programmed to imagine a future full of difficulties and failures, so we tend to be afraid and think negatively.

A few of us are fortunate to be brought up with positivity and living in the present moment. Such parents live a positive life themselves and encourage their children to take risks, run fast, and reassure their children that when they fall and get hurt, or get into problems, they have the capacity within themselves to recover very quickly. If they need any help, then these parents  also assure them that they will be there to help them recover.

Adults with such an up bringing are generally peaceful, think more positively, are willing to take risks in life, have inbuilt capabilities to rise from difficult situations and to live a happy and good life.

The question is, if we have negative thoughts, will they attract negative situations in our life? Most of the motivational trainers and books state that the answer is unequivocal, YES! The key to success is to change our negative  thoughts to positive thoughts. This is stated by most of the motivational trainers and authors.

Experience has shown that is not true! Despite negative thinking, positive situations do happen to negative thinkers most of the time. This is so, as situations arise not out of only the individual Ego’s efforts but from the diverse universal forces acting at each and every moment. These universal forces have phenomenally gigantic powers compared to the powers of our Ego! The resulting situations arise from the combination of all the forces at work in the present moment and the biggest contributors to the end result are the universal forces.

So, what is the effect of negative thinking? It is mainly on the mental and physical health of the body. Negativity produces chemicals in the body which are harmful, reducing the immunity of the body resulting in more probability of depression and attacks from all types of diseases and illnesses.

Negativity also tends to make the person less socially acceptable and relationships can be under pressure all the time.

How, do we solve the situation of negative thinking? The oft quoted suggestion is ‘to think positive instead’! But this is easier said than done. To change oneself is not easy and neither very quick. The technique that works, is to first become aware that we are thinking negatively and accept this fully as the characteristic of our Ego. We recommend strongly to do meditation and physical exercises regularly which help reduce negativity and replace it with peace and tranquility.

Further, if we have experienced and understood fully that the future is impossible to predict and that miracles occur often, then after each negative thought that comes, follow it up with a positive thought that is an exact reverse of the negative thought! For example, if we think that a crisis is going to happen for sure, then think that all my problems will be resolved soonest; if a negative thought is that I am going to be sick, follow it with a positive thought that I will be and am very healthy! Then, slowly and automatically, our Intellect will change negative thinking to tranquility and positive thinking.

Tranquility and positive thinking lead to better health as well as good success in both the internal as well as external worlds.

For the ultimate in good living we need to go beyond tranquility and positive thinking by becoming aware of our own True Self! Then we live life fully and in uninterrupted and total bliss!

Smiles & Laughter

Smiles and Laughter are essential for living life fully.

Most of us can laugh easily at other people’s mistakes and mishaps. Whereas, our own mistakes and mishaps make us frown and sometimes we become angry with our own self. To overcome this, we have to become aware that all this is a play of our Ego, which is very self centered and unnecessarily proud of itself.

ID-10033947 (1) - CopyThe most helpful smile or laughter is when our Ego can smile or laugh at itself when it makes a mistake or a mishap happens to it. Such smile or laughter also lends to better relationships with our near and dear ones.

Even forced smile or laughter has beneficial effects on our Body and Intellect. So, we should make an effort to smile as often as possible and enjoy a belly full of laughter whenever we can.

Further, Donna Eden in her book “Energy Medicine’ says Smiles and Laughter are your birthright. If you can expand their energy within yourself, you will expand your joy. And you will bolster your health. While this book focuses on many kinds of energy, the joyous energy that wells into a deep smile is not insignificant. It is a natural and powerful healing force.

Cancer has been cured by some people by laughing while watching comedy shows regularly. Light hearted entertainment is good for all of us.

So, keep Smiling most of the time and enjoy a good laugh as often as possible for living a full and healthy life!

We all would be smiling all the time if we remain in the present moment, an abode of infinite, internal peace and stability – The Totality * 020219

Alternate Daily Awareness

I am Bliss, Infinite & Complete. Further, my illusion of self created Self Identity has understood the infinite powers of Divinity to create all life situations including miracles. My illusion of self identity is therefore ever grateful for all my life situations as they are created by Divinity. Life situations are neither good nor bad; they just are. This classification is done by the illusion of our Self Identity. –  The Totality 071119 *
