Identity

On my spiritual journey, the question that constantly arises in my mind and in my consciousness is …..who am I?

Who am I?

I find myself engrossed in activities and engaged in conversations and soon enough I become a part of that which is happening around me. In fact I lose myself in that and in doing so I lose the connection with my true identity. Who I am is then based on what I do and how I look and what I have achieved.

However, who was I before all of that? what was I?

My identity is that of a spiritual entity, of soul. Subtle, pure and complete. I have moved so far away from my original identity, that I find it difficult to comprehend. And yet, the ultimate truth is that I am a soul.
A being of spiritual light, eternal and immortal…….

If I allow myself to be still and detach from the gross reality that I have become accustomed to, then I will be able to transcend into the subtle and the reality of that.

I the soul am a subtle energy, let me experience that now.

 

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

The Light

on

Darkness is nothing but the absence of light. As soon as there is light, darkness no longer exists. You cannot create darkness, but when you take away light then darkness appears.

In the dark there is uncertainty, weariness and perhaps even a fear of the unknown or the unseen.

When there is ignorance in our lives there are these feelings of fear and uncertainty. With knowledge there is enlightenment, wisdom and a freedom that releases the soul from sorrow.

Spirituality brings enlightenment. It brings the light back into the soul and frees it from fear and pain. And as one practises and applies spirituality into their daily life, it makes the soul shine bright and brighter until it becomes a guide for others too.

Step into the light today.

 

Om Shanti

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

Fear is an Illusion!

boxed_inFear is definitely an illusion – It is not real. It is generated through our thoughts and manifests in our feelings.

Our thoughts create a story in the mind which then generates fear. Even though the story has not yet unfolded – and may never do so, we create and experience that fear by just thinking about it. There may be a very real possibility of danger in our story, but fear is a choice.
 
We can either live our dreams or live our fears. For many of us we find our living is based on a foundation of fears!!
Our fears are essentially the anxiety of how to deal with the unknown – loosing face, being wrong, failure. Getting clarity on the root cause of fear will help diffuse the ticking anxiety bombs and release our creative power.
 
When there is darkness there can be a lot of fear. To eliminate fear we need to bring light – the light of awareness, of understanding and enlightenment.
 
Let us make a choice to bring light into our fear.
Om Shanti

Lighthouse of Hope

on

Nature run’s its own course and no one can stand in its way.

In current times, we are witnessing the suffering and sorrow of souls across the globe – from east to west, north to south cries of sorrow and distress can be heard.

The seemingly ‘powerful’ race of humankind stands helpless, watching, as so much is being destroyed. No amount of money, influence or technology can heal the pain that is being experienced.

At this time, whilst we watch the scenes of nature unfold, what can we do?

Like lighthouses, we can stand tall, still and silent for a moment. From deep within our hearts and minds, we can generate and emanate thoughts of pure feelings and good wishes in one single focused moment. The power of that spiritual light will surely reach and touch souls everywhere and once again ignite hope in their hearts.

 

Om Shanti

Who Am I?

consciousness

They say that we are three people: the one I think I am, the one others think I am and the one I really am.

So who am I really? Who am I?
I am a soul.
I am a soul within this body

I know this but do I understand the deep significance of this truth?
Do I even care?

I am a soul…. I am energy, I am light.

As a soul, I am eternal and immortal ….. I am never born and I will never die.

I cannot be seen with these eyes and yet I exist without a doubt.
I am beyond matter and sound, beyond anything tangible yet I know I do exist.

It is I that speaks through these lips and sees through these eye. The body does not see, it is the soul that sees. The body does not speak, it is the soul that speaks through the body.

I am the soul, the traveller and this is my journey through time.

 

Om Shanti

The One

One

Who is the One who is the Almighty Authority, God?

To see Him, I need to become introverted and spend time with myself. To be introverted means not to allow anything external to enter the mind and to be able to recognise and sit with myself, the soul.

To know Him I need to first know myself. With the power of concentration the senses become completely still. I experience the self as energy and light.

In the stillness of my own being I am able to come in front of The One. He is extremely subtle, He is love, energy, light and power.

To recognise Him and to know Him as He is, is the most profound experience in life. It is the realisation of this eternal connection that empowers and transforms the soul and makes it full again.

Take time to recognise the self. Take time to recognise the One.

Om Shanti

Festival of Lights

Diwali is the Festival of Lights. The significance of light is two-fold. One is that it removes darkness and negativity and second is that it brings light and brightness into our lives.

When it is dark it is not so easy to see. The ability to judge, decide and discern is clouded with the unknown and maybe even doubt and fear.

When the light comes it takes away all that is dark. It does not fight the darkness or struggle in transforming it. But when it appears everything is clearly visible.

I the soul sleep in the deep, dark sleep of ignorance. The ignorance of what is truth and what is false, what is real and what is not. The light is within and as it ignites, with spiritual wisdom, it awakens me from this sleep. It allows me see clearly and destroys all the ghosts of negatively and waste that appear in the night. The awakening of the soul brings me from the night into the day.

Let us celebrate the true Diwali together. Let us bring light not only into our homes but into our lives.

Happy Diwali!

 

Om Shanti

The Secret

There is a secret I would like to share. The secret is that behind every weakness or vice there is a virtue.

Actually weakness in itself does not exist, it is only a state without virtue. Just as darkness does not really exist, being only a state which is there in the absence of light.

When the light comes the darkness will disappear automatically. It is not possible to have darkness when there is light..

Don’t waste time chasing away weaknesses, the darkness. Just switch on the light and use your virtues.

Have you lightened up your life?

Om Shanti
