Spiritual Pilgrim

an_incredible_journey

I am a spiritual pilgrim, a spiritual traveller, travelling through time.

The journey is long – it seems to go on and on to beyond.

Where am I going to?
A gentle response, from deep within the soul, utters – It is a pilgrimage from myself back to me.

It is an incognito journey I take to find myself. A journey I take alone, that no-one else can see or understand.
It happens in this moment, and in every moment that passes by. The journey is rooted within myself – within the active experience of my thoughts, feelings and emotions.
The happiness and joy, the stress and anger, the friend and the enemy, the bonus and the challenge – these, and more, are all scenes and side scenes that I pass through each day. They are on the journey but are not the destination.

I must journey on and just let them pass…and they will. I don’t need to pack them up and carry them on my journey – that would just be excess baggage that will make the journey more difficult.

Let me not stop. Let me let go and continue my pilgrimage back to me.

Om Shanti

Believing into Being

i_believe

When I look at myself and keep focusing on the weaknesses that exist within my own personality then it will lead me into depression.

Weaknesses do not belong to me but I have acquired them through life experiences and so it appears as if they belong to me – but they don’t!

Do I believe that?

What I need to do is see the truth within myself, about myself, and believe that.

Let me understand that I am a soul. I need to have conviction in what it means to be a soul. Believe in the soul’s true nature and innate qualities.

Without belief there is no power of authority in that truth.

Like a picture of the sun – looking at it again and again will not give me light or heat. I need to see the real sun and then I will experience it.

Experience makes us worthy and powerful.

Experience gives us spiritual authority.

 

Om Shanti

AUM

bodyconsciousness

AUM is the eternal sound of creation…… and I exist ……. within this eternity

A – marks the beginning, the start of the journey through time
U – signifies expansion and the sustenance of the creation
M – marks closure – going back to the essence, the point, the seed

AUM…..

And then from the seed creation takes shape once again….
This is the eternal sound and the eternal cycle of creation.
This is the sound of ‘I’, the eternal being…

AUM means ….. I exist
AUM …. I am

 

Om Shanti

My Original Self

sanskars

When thoughts are expressed they lead to words and action. This expression of thoughts creates an experience for the self and leaves a memory of that experience within the subconscious.

When I repeat the same words and actions again and again, they become a habit. And when habits are repeated, over time, they become my personality – it reflects the way I am.

This personality I am now, has been created, over time, through expression and experience. Layers of experiences have superseded each other with dominating personality traits overpowering more subtle and gentle ones.

I take a deep breath and reflect on this ‘created’ personality of mine and the thought arises from deep within the soul – what was my original personality? Will I ever return to that original pure personality that I was?

And my conscience responds in a whisper – this is the destiny of the soul.

 

Om Shanti

Absorbed in Silence

the_incorporeal

As I journey into the depths of silence, I close behind me the doors to all other sound. Silence is not only a space without words but it is in fact a state beyond sound. My speaking, hearing, seeing and thinking all become silent.

I allow my inner ear to open up and I listen to the sound of silence that is within me. I journey onwards deeper and deeper in to the recesses of my inner world.

I discover that silence has its own vibration and I find I am naturally and effortlessly aligning myself to vibrate at the same frequency.

The sound and vibrations of silence are amplified and in that moment of total focus I become absorbed within silence itself

I am absorbed and I am free from all attractions, influences, desires and even free from fear. It is in this state of being that I become open and available to receive from God – His love, light, power and peace.

Become absorbed in silence and be open to absorb Gods power.

 

Om Shanti

Stop and Observe

stop

In a fast moving world that operates on the basis of actions and reactions, is it possible for me to step back and observe?

My automatic reaction to life’s dramas seem to be controlled by a force that I am not directly managing. And then these reactions become the basis of my tomorrow.

In the face of situations let me see if I can apply a brake. To stop and not engage at any level – whether it be my thoughts, words, actions or even feelings.

If I am able to stop then I can become the observer of the scene – Who is doing what and why?

If I can step back even further then I become the observer of the self and my behaviour within the scene. What am I thinking and feeling about the scene and what are the needs and desires which are fuelling that?

Developing the ability to ‘Stop’ will allow me to begin to understand the things that control me from a very deep space within the soul. I begin to reveal myself to myself and in doing so I am able to become free.

Still and Silent

the_one

I take a moment and become still.

I allow each part of my body to slowly relax and as I do that the body responds and becomes very still.

I gently listen to my breath as I inhale and exhale – my breathing becomes slow and deep…

Moving my focus inward, I watch the pattern of my thoughts which have slowed down.

I become aware of there being a distinct stillness within.

Still…..

From within this stillness I am drawn to a very gentle silence that is held within the inner ear.
I listen to this silence and as I do so I become absorbed in this eternal sound of silence.

I stand still in time and within this eternal sound of silence I just ‘am’ …..

 

Om Shanti

I am a spiritual being

I

I am a spiritual being – a spirit, a soul, an energy that is not visible to the human eye.

The thoughts and feelings that are generated through my mind form a layer of subtle energy around the soul. This is then expressed in a gross form of energy we recognise as words and action. When words and actions are expressed through the body they enable me to build relationships with the world, people and situations in the world.

I move from a core truth of my subtle existence into a gross form and personality and a physical existence. And over time I learn to live in the reality of this outer most world that I myself manifested – believing it to be real and true.

However this manifestation is not ‘I’ at all because I am the spirit, the unseen soul at the very core.I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….

I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form.

In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form. I am

I am spirit.

Free from Thoughts

peace

I have heard it say that, if I silence the mind of all thoughts then I will experience peace of mind.

From nature we understand that one seed gives fruit from which many more seeds will be produced – and so it is with thoughts – one thought gives rise to many other thoughts which then go on to result in many feelings, words, actions and reactions. Perhaps then if I am able to focus on the mind, and ensure it remains quiet, then I will remain stable, detached and in control – mentally, emotionally and physically at peace.

However, thoughts, like seeds produce fruit. Without thoughts it is not possible to get a return. If I plant positive, peaceful and empowering thoughts then the fruit that I will experience within my life will also reflect that. So peace can be experienced through the practice of creating peaceful thoughts within the mind and not as a result of no thoughts – which in fact yield no return.

Let me not try and control my mind but instead learn to transform my negative, critical and wasteful thoughts into positive and peaceful thought so that then what manifests in my life also reflects the same.

Is My Vision Limited?

what_colour_glasses

When I have a ‘limited vision’ – one that is immediate, judgemental and closed – then what I am seeing is not real.

My vision and my perception of a scene is influenced by the past – by preconceptions, experiences and judgements. This then instigates a way of speaking, behaviour and discerning.

When I realise the reality of this block that restricts my vision and decide to shift it – the moment I change my ‘limited vision’ my attitude also changes. It then allows my unlimited nature of acceptance and generosity to flourish within my relationship.

It is important to remain aware of the influence of ‘limited vision’ and ‘limited understanding’. What I consider to be real and truth may not be the truth at all!

What is hidden within my vision that influences what am I seeing?

 

Om Shanti
