Purpose of Life

This is a big one. The primary reason many start on their spiritual journey. Looking for their purpose in life. What is that one thing that is going to fulfill us so intensely and so deeply that we have no other desires or no more searching or no where else to reach or go – when we know we have arrived and are at peace – on the inside and outside.

We believe this purpose to be a gift, something we have been bestowed with, the one thing that only we have. We strive so hard looking for it – I know for years I wondered what I would bring forth? A healing modality? Maybe some teachings/techniques that would burst through from the depth of my being? Something the world was waiting for me to share? Would it be that I would fill a spot or space reserved for me somewhere in this world and when I found it; it would fit like the missing piece in the puzzle and my world would carry on easily and smoothly?

It took me by surprise when I realised that our purpose in life is the same for all. Ahh! Not what you want to hear is it? We immediately react…my purpose must be unique and solely mine – it cannot be one for all. That is fundamentally wrong.

Well it isn’t. Continue reading

Bursting through

For many years now, I have walked on this path of self change. Working with my thoughts and emotions and shifting them so that they might shift the world I live in. It is not about control but rather about awareness and healing. Many times I have caressed these thoughts and emotions, ignored them, allowed them to fester or take over my space. I have seen what each of these actions have done to me and my world. Then there were times when I chose to step in and accept them for whatever they were, however distasteful, and believed that there was another way.

Yet, I kept it all to myself. I didn’t think it was for me to share or teach others – not from a point of arrogant but rather twisted humility – of what can i really offer? At the same time, my journey was such a twisted personal one that I couldn’t really claim to know anything of substance that might help another. Also, I couldn’t be sure till I really knew myself.

Today it is different. I feel like i am bursting – with an excitement that overwhelms me because I have seen what this kind of work can do. Wherever you are in life, whoever you are in life, whatever you do in life – nothing – absolutely nothing stops you from experiencing a happier one.

There are no limits = there is no where to reach except for easier, easier, easier. Life is easy. Life is good. Life knows.

What comes in way of this ease? Ourselves. Thats it. There is no incident, person, experience – however traumatic that can stop you from moving. Only you can. Only you decide that this ‘x’ person, experience, incident is worth giving your power away to. I know this can sound flippant but it is true.

In my own experience the one thing that probably would have made me give up believing in this, would be the untimely death of someone very dear to me. I believed that would definitely be a justified reason to just give up and dive back into anger and hate and resentment and despair so deep that you could not carry on. I could not make sense of that in any way and I am grateful I did not have to experience it to shift my world.

Then I met someone who has, and as much as I would give 100% allowance to the person to be living a sad depressed life – I found that he had managed to go on. Go on so beautifully; so as to have the ability to shift and shake other peoples unwillingness to move. He holds his energy so powerfully and easily and smoothly that he is able to glide into your energy and help you see what is holding you back.

And then i realised, no matter what… whatever your hardships; however difficult they might seem, however justified, you always have a choice. A choice that will derail you or one where you still look for the light and continue to move on.

I remember very early on in my journey, learning that you are dealt the cards that you can deal with (no pun intended). I would always say who in God’s name chose these cards for me? – and the answer was ME.

We are soul stars – we come from beyond this earthly dimension from a consciousness that no can can really describe. Whatever the definitions that many other seers have provided – I don’t know if it can truly be contained in any finite description. So I just accept that there is this ultra consciousness we come from – what matters only is your experience and description of it.

In this ultra conscious space we have a knowingness that is beyond intelligence. A knowingness that possibly charters out our path on a soul level.

This knowingness is all embracing, all inclusive, all one. Its path therefore, can only be such that embraces and includes all soul paths at the same time.

In that knowingness we choose our life path for this life – and in doing so we create a beautiful complex tapestry that will unfold itself. A tapestry that has such incredible undefinable intelligence that at every moment of time, in every choice and in every decision; there are multitude of options that could be experienced. The tapestry keeps unfolding with just one focus in mind – find your true self.

Know your true self within the veil of illusions. Become the magician within a world of magic and not an audience in a theatre of illusion.

This is the only reason for living. How your tapestry unfolds is your personal story – but the destination of discovering your true self is the same for all souls on earth. You bring your distinct flavour to it – an aroma that only you can create.

So go on – explore your gift – your story; and in doing so you will discover your greatest happiness and pleasure. heart wings

 

the heaviness of light

today is one of those days – when i woke up in a daze – a feeling of having not slept enough – and i had to rush – rush to make it in time for my sons assembly performance – my sons woke up in a daze too – whiny and needy and i had no time to attend to these needs they had – i had to make it to school – rush get ready – make sure they ate and the entire way it was run run run – my younger son came upto me to say lets play and i said no no no – finish your food – we need to run can’t be late – and the energy that the day started with was discordant – and i didn’t  have or take the time out to set it right either.

and that happens…

it happens all the time – and it can get doubly frustrating because you can see whats happening – you can see that this is what is going to change the course or affect the course of the day. its going to make the day heavy. A day when everything is a task and a chore and just getting through the day is a challenge.

There is a knowing that a light filled day is different – it is one of ease and calm and flow – and the day just rolls on so smoothly and beautifully. This knowing makes it even more difficult. It makes the heavy days heavier because instead of just accepting them to be another day – you know better.

both are going to happen. So do we just accept and move on and hope for more light filled days and pray the heavy days away? Is there a way to change the flow?

Lets take today –  there was an energetic discord to the day – and it could come from a number of reasons – physical, emotional and mental – and whatever the trigger – eventually they all spiral into each other and the mood for the day is set.

If you are in awareness of it then you can consciously at some point shift or bring in another action, thought, feeling that might shift the energy you hold and then that too will spiral outwards into all the other spaces you occupy.

Writing does that for me. It clears my mind, my heart and in turn my energy. For others it might be art, singing, meditation, cooking, praying, making lists, exercising, dancing, playing…

Find your switch. That one thing that fixes you, calms you, and can shift your energy from discord to ease. Even if you have spent half the day or 3/4 of the day in discord – whenever you can, bring in your switch – turn it on and then experience how energy can shift and what it can do to you and everything you experience post. As you do it more and more you will get better at it, and then soon, you might be able to turn on that switch at the time you wake up and feel the discord; or much earlier into your day than you could ever do before.

We the Icebergs

iceberg

When we see an iceberg – we see this floating piece of ice and believe what we see is all of it. Similarly, we believe we are only that which we can see of ourselves and each other.

We focus on the outer aspects of ourselves – What we do, How we present ourselves, Who we know. It is these aspects that we believe define us, and society at large identifies us based on these aspects.

So we develop our gaze to focus on these outer aspects, and work hard on improving them.  We continually work and aspire towards changing, acquiring, developing things, labels, identification that relate to this outer expression of ourselves.

However;  just like an iceberg we are much much more.

The part of the iceberg we see is just a tip of what is actually a gigantic mass that lies hidden beneath.

Similarly; what we know of others or present of ourselves, is just a drop in the ocean of our hidden being-ness. The inner depths is not seen nor known even; and it is this that we begin to explore when we begin to question ‘Who AM I?’

The journey within; is this exploration of our true entire selves – that which is known and that which is still unknown or hidden. There is so much of ourselves we are yet to discover and know.

In walking this path of inner awareness, understanding and recognition we begin to see the wholeness of ourselves. We come to appreciate that we are way more powerful or bigger than we ever imagined we could be. We realise that we are a huge island of potential on our own. We begin to see that all the floating icebergs around, too have hidden power and potential thus unseen and unknown. We begin to comprehend that we are are all connected and floating through a common ocean of oneness. We then consider that we possibly are just another expression of this ocean of oneness and that eventually we will all merge and melt back into this ocean from where we have come.

This is probably not a new analogy, but it certainly is a highly relevant one. Starting your journey within is a huge task. However, the beauty that you will come to know and the depths of strength, power and potential that lies within you; can only be understood when you begin to see the whole of who you truly are.

So begin the journey and float into the existential reality of yourself….may your ride be easy and smooth and may it reveal to you the full beauty of what lies within.

Innergy

Energy – Innergy

A play with words. Is that what life is about?

How you read life – what it means to you – what perspective do you bring to it?

Is it these perspectives – that cause us ‘Ease or Dis-ease’? ‘Distress or Destress’

What is life like when viewed from an inner landscape?

An inner expression which when allowed to peek its head out of its cowered/covered space turns on a light so bright it lights up your world.

Is this even possible? Can we truly say that our lives can be changed through play of what we think, see, believe, speak? How does it change? What makes this change happen? Can this be applied to all aspects of life or does it only work in limited spaces?

Is there someway to understand this and apply it in our everyday lives. How does philosophy become practical?

These are some of the intentions I have for this blog. To offer an inner viewpoint to life in all its various everyday forms. Having a conceptual understanding is one thing, being able to apply it to your work, home, relationships, health, wealth, among others; is when that becomes valuable…

On this blog I shall do just that – share my own experiences, and understandings of a life that has been viewed through an inner lens for the past 12 odd years and how it has helped me navigate through some of life’s toughest lessons.

I hope you join me on my journey of sharing, and may it bring greater clarity, confidence, calmness, beauty, balance, and most importantly ease into your every day.
