Am I good enough?

Whether overtly or subtly, and to varying degrees, I mostly gauge my worthiness on external things.

If I have the latest gadget, the perfect home, family, friends, the career, the perfect size, looks, personality – if I have all these then I will be fulfilled and feel good about myself – I will be seen to be ‘good enough’.

The truth is, whether the world sees me as ‘good enough’ or not, I can never be truly fulfilled from what I am, what I have, what I do on an external and material level. It is the goodness that is within me that will fulfil me and raise my levels of happiness and contentment.

Let me start tapping into this goodness.

I learn to talk to myself sincerely. I ask myself – who am I? What am I? What is my true nature? Without intellectualising and interfering, I let the questions reach deep within. I spin the questions in the mind and the answers come. Deep down I know my own truth. I need to just harness the power from this truth.

It is this power of truth that will protect me from being drawn into false beliefs time and time again.

 

Om Shanti

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?

In the Moment

trikaldarshiIn my mind I stand still in the present moment. I come face to face with myself – no frills, no flaws, just me as I am.

I am no longer connected with an image of what I was or what I would like to be. The past or future are not projected into my now.

In this very real moment of truth I realise that I don’t need to become. In every moment I am already what I need to be. Nothing more and nothing less. I am perfect for this role within the scene of this moment.

I just need to be me!

 

Om Shanti

The Traveller

An_incredible_journey

I am a traveller on this journey of life. Where am I going to, do I know?

I the traveller, the soul, have travelled through life and perhaps through many lives.
How long is this journey – do I even know my destination?

I bring myself back to focus on this moment in time and I reflect on want I truely want in life. In this moment, from deep within my soul, I hear the voice of my conscience calling out to me – all I want is to be happy, peaceful, loved and content.

If this is what I want and need then can I not achieve that in this moment now? why the journey through time and space?

I, the soul, am originally and eternally the essence of love, peace and happiness. This is my spiritual truth, But in my search for the same in the physical world, I have travelled far, far away from my own eternal essence.

And this journey, of I the traveller, is to return me back to myself again.

As I realise this eternal truth, the universe echoes back to me with my every breath – As I was, so shall I become.

 

Om Shanti

Still Point

One

Let me take a moment and become still.

I take a long, deep, slow breath and then another and one more until I feel relaxed. I become aware of my own body which has now become heavy and still.

I move my focus within, into my inner world, and as I do that I become aware that everything within has also slowed down. My thoughts, feelings and even my inner responsiveness.

As I watch and experience this state of being I realise that I have become a detached observer of my physical self.
I the soul sit awake and conscious of the body in which I am sitting. The body is separate and I am separate.

I move my focus again to my innermost self and emerge a thought in my awareness – ‘who am I?’
And from deep within the self an experience emerges … ‘I am…’
It is as if the deepest most ancient and wise part of the self responds to this call.
‘I am ….’. ‘I am the embodiment of all goodness and strength’. ‘ I am the eternal soul’.
In this moment, absorbed within this experience, I realise my own unlimited truth.

My truth, which is beyond the day to day trivia that I play. My truth, which is so pure and powerful and unlimited.
And life is a small scene within my truth which is eternal.

My whole perspective of reality changes in this moment of truth.

 

Om Shanti

Defensive Listening

Am_I_extroverted

Listening is an art that I can truly master only when I am able to be absolutely silent within.

Often whilst listening I hear my inner voice activating a running commentary which continues to criticise, judge, analyse that which is being spoken. Irrespective of who or what I am ‘listening’ to there is a constant critic in action within.

Why do I do this? What is behind this auto pilot critic?

Looking closer at my internal processing I realise that when I am listening I am often holding an attitude of ‘defence’. Internally that little voice is defending my idea, my work, my position etc. My listening, and thus what I hear, is influenced by an attitude that has already taken a position of ‘defence’.

If I truly want to listen and understand the truth behind what is being spoken then I need to learn to listen with an attitude which is free from fear. There is actually no right and wrong or good and bad – it is a matter of perspective and just because someone else has a different perspective it does not make mine wrong.

When I spend time in silence I begin to free myself of deep rooted fears and expectations. This then allows me to truly listen without the need to judge or justify anything.

Wisdom of Silence

introversion

Deep within our consciousness each one of us holds an awareness of truth and innate wisdom. The soul is eternal, it has always existed and so why should it not be all knowing?

When I am silent and still, the power from that silence sharpens my inner capacity and ability to understand. The silent state allows the habit of continuous thinking and analysing to subside and enables the soul to express its eternal wisdom. This is a very natural experience as though the capacity to know with clarity and far-sightedness is already part of my psyche.

From that inner space of stillness, inspiration emerges. Inspiration which comes from a pure and detached place of eternal wisdom. It unfolds itself, in front of me, without any justification and I merely observe, knowing undoubtingly that this is the truth.

Beyond my capacity of clever thinking and intellectual analysis, the power of silence, reveals wisdom from deep within the all knowing self.

What’s driving me?

illusion

When disagreements happen, let me stop and check why I am fighting the fight – what is in it for me?

On the surface it may be a simple reason of proving the truth, wanting the right things to happen or even standing up for someone.
If I check deeper, at the more subtle things that drive me then I am likely to find something revealing about myself. What really is my motive, what is my intention?

Buried deep below the surface I will come to discover that this is where my ego looms – the need to be respected and counted, or maybe the need to be in control or something else.

When I can name the intent and motive very clearly it will lose its power. The realisation that I have will be enough to dis-empower it. Then the disagreement and fight will seem trivial and not worth the fight.

What is my intention and motive …do I really know?

 

Om Shanti

Decision-Making Power

the_power_to_Discern

Living in demanding and fast paced times, we are often faced with having to make snap decisions.

Under such pressures, how do I know if I am making the right decisions?

When I constantly practice the art of being a detached observer, stepping aside from my own needs and wants, rising above influences of learnt behaviours, acquired beliefs and distorted perceptions, the decision-making process becomes natural and easy. Because as a detached observer, my decision-making is powered by the foundation of truth and pure-intent.

Allowing my decisions to be based on truth and purity, I will remain free from any worries of what the outcome maybe… I simply ensure I respond from the right space.

Om Shanti

The Still Point

being_centred

In my mind, can I ‘hold’ this moment, this second, right now?

If I hold it I will experience the ‘still point’. It is the experience of eternity, of time, of self. Within this moment there is everything that is, was and ever will be.

It is an amazing feeling which brings me face to face with truth.
This is what I am, this is what I was and will be forever – nothing more and nothing less.
Everything else is only a passing scene.

Stop and stand within the Still Point for a moment and see.

 

Om Shanti
