Step into Freedom

2015-04-20_0804

Do you ever feel like you want to be free. Free from the baggage of the past and the uncertainty and expectations of the future?

Freedom holds within it an experience of lightness, being carefree and happy.
If this is truly what we want then what is it that binds us so tightly to all that we ‘by definition’ don’t want?

Somewhere, somehow there is a sense of ‘need’. We need these things, we need those people , we need to do certain things and know other things. We place this very heavy chain of ‘need’ around our necks. Needs based on perception and speculation and not based on any proof or guarantee.

Even though the soul will yearn to be free, once trapped in the chain of needs it is very difficult to see beyond that.
We have to step back and see things in a detached and objective way in order to see the reality.

Take a step of courage and let go of one ‘need’ that is tieing you down. Let go and experience a step into freedom.

 

Om Shanti

Mirror of the Mind

qualified_mind

My mind is a mirror – whatever is in the mind is reflected in my life and becomes my truth

I cannot ignore the mind nor is it possible to run away from it.

Within the mind I create thoughts. These thoughts are seeds that I plant which then grow over time. The seeds become the fruits and flowers of tomorrow. They can also become the weeds and thorns!
My mind holds the key to my future – for a bright future or a sad one.

If I hold sadness and bitterness in my thoughts, If I hold sorrow then that is what will be reflected in my life – that is what I will experience tomorrow.

Do I have the courage to change the thoughts that I hold in my mind?
Do I even want to create beautiful thoughts, positive thoughts, or do I want to hold onto that which is sad and bitter and now even old?

Whatever is going on inside my mind – I need to see it and realise it – and then decide ‘Do I want to change it?’

 

Om Shanti

Eternity

Shiva

Today I had a thought: What is eternity?

Eternity is forever, something without a beginning or an end. And yet eternity is now, this present moment.
Once this time passes by, it is gone and so no longer exists. A moment yet to come is unknown and perhaps not even there.
So the only eternity I really know is in the here and now.

Let me use this precious moment in the best way possible. Let me use it to love, to laugh and to share happiness.

If I can do this then my every moment will be valuable, through to eternity.

Om Shanti

Good Intentions

good_intentions

Everything begins with good intentions – what we say, what we do etc.

The thinking that follows is a by-product of intention. However my thoughts are also coloured by my past experiences and future desires and so the thinking, and thus the intention, becomes influenced.

‘If my intention is for them to be happy then why are my thoughts, feelings and actions not demonstrating that when they decide to go against what I would like them to do?’

It takes great humility to step back and to see what is happening, and then to allow myself the time and space to reconnect with the roots of my intention. The moment I do that I will free myself of the burden of fulfilling the intention.

Sustaining a connection with ourselves is what is required for us to remain true and pure in our feelings and intentions.

 

Om Shanti

You know what they say about those who live on cloud nine – they’ve got a life worth living!

Well, there are eight clouds one must pass before the ninth; are you ready?
