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

The Economy of Thoughts

ecomony_thoughts

Thoughts become more thoughts and can lead to a wasteful way of thinking. Stressful, worried, critical and negative thinking has become such a part and parcel of our lives.

To change thoughts we need to first let them go. To do this it is necessary to let go of the habit of ‘wanting’ and ‘needing’ a particular result from any person or situation.

The speed and quantity of our thoughts are fed by our own desires – subtle desires as well as gross. Whether or not we get the result or the goal we desire actually has no connection with the quantity of our thoughts. Thinking about it again and again will not change it nor make it the way we want. It will only create stress, anxiety and worse.

Be aware of the mechanics of how thoughts work and economise.

Thoughts are energy, don’t throw away that energy by wasting them. Be economical with your thoughts. Use them wisely.

 

Om Shanti
