Reactions from the universe

When the universe looks what does she see?

Does she see a world that’s divided and self destructing through reckless consumption of all resources natural and synthetic?

Or does she, see herself, become more conscious of herself who was neglected so far due to ignorance of self?

Does she see different religions and countries and colours and degrees ?

Or does she see herself in a lower state trying to find herself in a higher state?
Do you think you are an individual and the universe is something other than you?

Or do you think that you are in a universe struggling to survive? If that is what you think then don’t you think that is the problem and not so much that you are struggling? The problem is that you are trying to survive as the individual in an unknown universe….when the truth is that you are the unknown universe and don’t need to survive as an individual to be alive.

You as the universe would only rejoice that consciousness is finally waking up to what has been done wrong for so long

A few monsters might be all it takes to get the whole world together on the same side for once

You might be Finally waking up from the slumber and noticing how you have been fooling yourself, and finding in your heart to speak up against what you feel is far from harmonious

It may not be as bad as you think when you look from the point of view of the whole universe
The universe has not felt this elevated in a long time surely, 

While it felt dead with people going about thinking their own needs were all that were relevant within their own little stories

As she feels the energy of the world shift from the mundane to the real, 

She feels the sense of hope and transformation coming through the chaos and fear

“Bless these idiots” she says, “It took their own monstrous reflections to make them finally see, that, that is not what they stand for as the Universe which is Me”

Discouraging encouragement toward sprituality

In spiritual disciplines, we usually find advise to not follow desires, to not indulge in extremities, to not go with your restless energies etc. This might work as a fake it till you make it concept. But the truth is, that the spiritual inclination is something we cannot always explain. Especially if it is genuine.  Because it has not reason or rationality to it. There might have been some reason when you decided to explore it to feel good, or be happy or to end suffering. But then you enter a stage after that which is completely destructive to your story in life. At this stage you cannot go back to your old ways of following a good feeling, be it though a meditative or yoga practice or the bliss of the quiet mountains or indulgence in material things. At this stage you are fully aware of the raging war inside you between truth and illusion. And here you had better allow truth to win and this might be at the cost of all your illusions, or in other words your false beliefs, your ideas, ideologies, your bullshit, being confronted and slain by your own awareness of them. There is nothing angelic about this stage. It can be painful and you may not always see clearly. But your love and intention is the only thing that will take you through it. If anything you will walk around with your hair in shambles and barely hanging on to your bearings. But even in this war zone, something inside you might still be smiling, because you know that this is pure grace. It does not feel like the doom that you experienced when you were still a full person with insecurities based on what you were conditioned by. This is a sacred destruction, Shiva’s destruction, he being the symbol for the destroyer of illusions. So spirituality is not for you if you have a lot to lose. Because you can be rest assured you will lose absolutely everything. Not necessary that you will end up on the streets. Although that is possibility as well. But the point is that it won’t matter to you what you lose in the realm of illusions, because you know that you have no choice but to see it through to the end. It calls for a love and faith that is way bigger than all your insecurities and fears. The left brained logical mind might call this stupid. But you know that this is what you are here for. If you have a doubt then you mustn’t even get on this journey. Not to discourage, but that it what it calls for. And if you are not willing to die to this, you could be stuck in a place you don’t want to be and settle for less, which would be a sellout. In the end you will see how beautifully things turn out, with you out of the way. You will see all your fears were nothing but mirrors showing you scary reflections of your mind’s imagination which came from conditioning that was projected on you through the ignorance of the world around you. So you need to go inward and remove this conditioning so the spontaneity can flow.

The desirelessness,  the restfulness, the peace, the silence, the contentment for no reason, are all the result of a true and genuine transformation. In fact if there is a desire, you might as well go with it till it exhausts itself. If your seeking is genuine, then you will set up sweet disaster for yourself at every step, which will by itself refine your tastes to appreciating and creating peace, love and joy as your natural state that does not depend on anything outside yourself. This will be your experience when you, as a person with all your ideas come to an end and silence expresses as depth, intensity, fearlessness, love and purity.  You will then experience yourself as everything and nothing, you will then experience yourself as timelessness.

As you see yourself in this light, your need to accumulate wealth, your need to consume, and you need to chase experiences, will be replaced with intense appreciation for all that is. If a large number of us transform to this state, we wouldn’t cut down trees like there is no tomorrow to build blocks of ugly high-rises that block out the sun and increase the heat. We wouldn’t pollute the earth through excessive consumption of fuels that emit poison into the air. We wouldn’t hoard at the expense of the less fortunate. We wouldn’t hurt animals to wear things we think make us stand out in society and feel good about ourselves. We wouldn’t see distinctions between anything be it people  or other species and hence there would be no wars or terror. We would be simply love expressing love.

But it is your choice.

 

 

Perception

Have you noticed how you are bombarded with different perceptions all the time throughout the day? One person thinks Trump is the devil incarnate. Another may think that atleast he is not pretending to be an angel like the others did, who were actually the devil in disguise. The common man suffering might want a job not really bothered about the environment. Others who are tired of the monotony and the superficiality of a big job might want to live in a cave for a while and condemn development. Some just want to accumulate as many experiences be it through marriage, kids, travel or picket fences. Another might want to run from it all having been too long in it. Some think they should save the world. Others want a flyover so they are not be stuck in traffic.

 

All opposing views. All different perceptions. If you agree or have one perception about one matter you think the other is wrong and you are right. Then you divide yourself and feel separated from existence. And this is just not your natural state.

 

Could you allow all perceptions to be and not try too hard to change them? Atleast not from the level that you are on while perceiving from only your point of view? You don’t need to agree or disagree. All you need to do is realise that they are all different perceptions and you have the capacity to rise above all perceptions and view them non-judgmentally.. To rise above all perceptions means to enter the realm of silence which allows everything to be. It allows your perception to be, and also the other’s. If nothing, what this does is reduce the noise levels of all the chaos in the world.

 

Then we can act from love rather than panic. Then we can spread more love than fear with all our opinions. Then even if you support a certain cause which is not wrong, you will also be big enough to allow the opposite without which you would have no job.

 

From this silence which is above all kinds of perceptions, you have better clarity and you will not add to the noise of the world. Like this you can transform what needs to transform and uplift what needs uplifting. If you remain on the level of your opponent you are only encouraging the fight. When you rise above all opposites and allow whatever actions and perceptions to happen including yours and the others, then harmony will follow in the world. Then your perception changes to a peaceful and inclusive one. Like this you can elevate the world through shifting your own perception.
