Space and Silence

Look around and we can notice that most of our world is 
space.  The room we are sitting in is mostly containing of space.  In the night if you go out of your house and look up the sky full of stars you will see vast amount of space.

So if we travel at the speed of light to the moon it will take about 1.3 seconds. What about travelling to the nearest city or to any other country in the speed of long it will take. There is much more space than objects out there.

Not only the outside world we are also made of mostly space. Empty spaces exist between the atoms of our bodies. 

Becoming aware of the space.... can connect us to who we are. Life forms and objects are mostly space.

When we continue to do meditation we can become aware of 

Pay attention to the space around you and the silence around you. You  will feel/get connected to the stillness within yourself.

Whenever we become aware of space and silence we connect with something deeper within us. 

Experiencing the combination of silence, space and stillness is a divine feeling which you/ me and all of us are given free to experience.

Seeing the things as they are

Mostly people running away from the present and are used to live in past or future and they are not connected to the reality. 

Many people tend to control things instead of accepting. Acceptance comes out with compassion. Acceptance based on peace. The moment you try to control any thing it becomes a conflict. That is the real truth.

Awakening takes place when you start to see things as they really are. 

When a day you find out/realize what is really going on that day everything changes. You connect to the reality and realization dawn in your consciousness.

Since most of us in today's world working with programmed minds, we do not understand that we are wonders of the existence.

Our understanding of the reality has become very limited mainly due to foolish pride which means the ego we have. People are fallen in to a deep slumber because of power, desires and materialistic possession issues. 

People are boasting about the technological advancements in today's world and what it can do and about automated systems etc...It is nothing wrong with these systems or advancements. When see the reality we can know that humans are loosing their awareness day by day. Also further we can see this is a like a comparison between human consciousness and low level control mechanisms. Machines cannot surpass human consciousness.

As humans we need to realize our true divine nature and manifest it. Than creating wealth and advancement we need to be focused to create well being.

Pure Consciousness....

If we have a purified body, mind and emotions we are exposed to experience unlimited possibilities as a human being.

In Buddhism there are plenty of practical ways for us to experience pure consciousness. Ultimate goal of Meditation , Yoga, breathing exercises and  living according to five precepts and Noble eight fold path all are there to help us to discover pure consciousness. 

Now for a moment think what happens when we meditate or do yoga......we consciously experience our inner self. Meditative state is like a conscious sleep. Getting connected to "samadhi" we can experience the unity of "creation and the consciousness". If simply explain.... state of consciously enjoying love.

Existence is created out of love and we all are created of love. Love has the power of creation. In other words the creative energy is love. If we can consciously experience the creation it is a divine experience. The energy of creation and consciousness both exist within each and every one of us. Enjoying and experiencing this creation consciously.........It is like merging love energy with cosmic consciousness.

When we are purely filled with real love/compassion inside and live accordingly the feelings of heart.... the waves of love will start spreading all over........Love has the capacity of over coming states that cloud the clarity of mind and manifest unwholesome actions.

Opening the heart with real love exposes us to limitless possible experiences.

Reality and Creations

Our own lives are our own creation. Imagine you have white board, different color of paints and a paint brush. Now you are going to paint a picture. You are the creator of that painting. You decide which colors to use , what kind of a scene you are going to draw etc. Final outcome picture is your creation.

The same way different people create different life paintings. The picture is in front of us once created. Our life picture which created by our own is in front of us. Whether it is a paint generating love, happiness,peace or what ever its our own creation.

This universe is magical.It grants us what we wish.  In this universe there are many colors, pencils and boards. What picture you are going to create is your own choice.

Now lets think you want to go to Switzerland. First it comes to you as a thought. Then you need to make some effort to make it happen. You need to get the passport done then the visa approval. Then you need to see whether you have enough money for the trip. Finally you book the flight and you have to go to the airport and get in to the flight and land in Switzerland.

There is a never ending process for every happening in the physical world. In the beginning it appears as a thought in you and it comes to physical reality.... this is how something happen in the physical world.

But there is a difference in the spiritual process. When we go in the spiritual journey it is always you will realize something only after you experience it. You cannot think, imagine and experiment and through knowledge never can realize anything like in science. You definitely need to experience it. For instance how much explain the state of samadhi to anybody, they will never realize it unless that person also have experienced it. But you can read hundreds and thousands of books and get knowledge about it. That knowledge is not realization.

Every one of us have creative skills. My idea is this creativeness should come out. When you paint  a picture or when you write a poem or design a house or compose music or dancing etc. in every creative process there is a ultimate result as  it helps you to understand the reality. Creativity can awaken you. 

My experience is recently I have designed a website on my own. While designing it I had to go through a kind of huge process. Including of the colors,pictures, gadgets, links, coding and texts etc. How many times I had to delete and reset until it came up as final product. When the final output emerged it was not just i designed it but I have realized lots of things too.

Creativity has the ability to awaken us. 

We all need to stand on the reality. Not in any fantasy worlds. Reality is the state you see how things actually exist and work. Reality includes everything which is and has been.

Life is a reality to be experienced....Let reality be reality. Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.

A person who realize and stand on the reality will become a source of love and compassion. Reality is created out of love.

Here and Now -Complete Joy

Most people are sacrificing the present moment for the future. You/me and all of us are like that sometimes. 

But believe me life is only available in the present  moment. We are only available only here and now. That is the reason why we should walk and act in such a way that each and every step to bring us to here and now.

All of us fear that this present moment will come to an end. Mostly many of us fear for the reasons such as we will not get what we need, we will loose what we love, or we will not be safe etc. But the biggest fear lies within us is some day our bodies will stop functioning.

These are the reasons most of the people are no enjoying the complete joy.

All you have to do is to connect to the present. There you can experience the lively feeling of happiness.

When you are completely in the present, here and now you can enjoy the complete joy. Past, present and future and all exist here and now.

Conditions and Habits

Health and lifestyle are greatly influenced by our own conditions and habits as well as  society's social, economic, environmental and cultural conditions.

According to my recent understanding most people are not happy and not well due to the conditions they themselves has set for themselves and habits they cannot get rid of. People are unable to get rid of the conditions and habits.

I will tell you an example. Think of a piece of land cultivated with grass. No one is benefited or taking use of it. But if you cultivate flower plants/vegetables or fruits in the same land what will happen?  Like wise our   habits and conditions can be replaced with new ways.

There are so many people stressed out with their life. No balance and always complaining. Why?

They are out of balance. They have put too many conditions to themselves and they have no guts to see the light out there.

If you feel tired you should rest, if you feel hungry you should eat, if you feel thirsty you need to drink something. Simple as that. Never ever suppress your feelings due to any conditions. If you do that there is a possibility you may become ill.

There are plenty of simple ways to be happy unconditionally.Do what you like, what makes you happy. If you are unable to sit in one place and meditate start from habits such as cleaning your house, garden etc. That can be an initiation. Live in an atmosphere which comforts you. Surround yourself with people who can lift up your energy.

Most of the habits can be modified with a bit of effort if we make ourselves aware of what we are doing.

We need to live our lives without any harm to ourselves as well as to the other people in this world. What ever the habits or conditions that makes you unhappy and other people... its time to change them.

Beginning of every day wish that may I be happy  and well and may all others be happy and well. 

We need more and more compassionate hearts full of love every corners of this world......................

Send out love and kindness.........

In the space we have taken a space according the sizes of our body. That differs to one another. 
We are not just the physical body.

My understanding is we are taking more space than our body size. Because we become expanded.

For example imagine you are a candle. If you light up the candle in a dark room. See how far the light spreads. The light energy is being sent out in different directions. Like wise we all are sending out many vibrations same like the light rays.

The vibrations we send out are going so far. Also these vibrations are going in different directions.

If you say something kind and generous those vibrations will go allover. And with those vibrations you yourself is being gone.

Think of a fragrance, light, heat,sound or any other energy form. These energies are not limited or squared in a box. These energies travel in all the directions. 

We humans are also consist of a energy body. What ever the energy we send out are being spread and sent in all directions.

That is why it is very important to give love and kindness out. 

Our thoughts, emotions, words, actions are being spread and energies sent allover.

We can follow simple methods below to send out good vibrations allover.
Being happy and in present moment
Having a greatful and thankful attitude
Appreciating more
Meditating every day
Doing yoga every morning
Breathing Exercises
Listening to some relaxation music /beautiful chanting every day
Helping in need whichever the way you are able to

In other  words we are what we send out. Isn't it?

Closer to the heart .....

Be closer to the heart. That is where the love starts. Love is the beginning of every spiritual journey. Compassion starts from love.  

Open up the heart and you will know it has a direct connection with this universe. The reality is connected with the heart. 

We are given a mind to conduct day to day work. Because without the mind we are not able to perform any task. But mind is not the boss. Its we ourselves should tell the mind what to be done.

The love is being felt in the heart. It is boundless. There is no boundaries for the love. The waves of love spread every where.

People always talk about changing the world. In order to change the world we need to change our selves. If we wish love and compassion everywhere.... first we need to contribute for that.

The heart has a big capacity. What is being felt in the heart is felt within the every cells of body. If our heart is always in love the whole chemistry happen within our body become love.

The love can happen to us in many ways. There is no specific way for it to occur.Once happen it never leaves us.

My experience is by closely associating the Sage, my spiritual guru and living the life accordingly love blossomed in the heart. Like how  a lotus blossom.....In the dawn when the sun light touches a lotus bud ..... how a lotus flower gradually blossom.... the same way love happens in the heart.

I remember a famous saying which is universal and I realize perfectly true. Sharing below for all of us.

"Buddha was not a Buddhist, Jesus was not a  christian, Mohammed was not  a Muslim..... All their religion was LOVE"

Continue to be happy........

We should let our emotions to flow. Emotions control our thinking, behavior and actions. Emotions affect our physical body.. The same way our physical body affects feelings and thoughts.  

If we ignore, dismiss or repress our  emotions, we are setting ourselves up for physical illness.  Emotions that are not felt and released but buried within the body can cause serious illnesses; examples could be cancer and arthritis.

For every emotion there is a chemical reaction in our body. We all have felt this. When we are happy and in peace how our bodies know the chemistry happen within us being felt. Similarly when we feel sad or worry our body react different.

This reaction for emotions such as fear, anxiety, negativity and depression are very different and harmful. That is why it is very important to be smiling, happy, contented and loving.... Then the chemicals released from the body is different.

The body cannot lie. It is always indicating the real truth...... we all should know that.

We all need to make a decision to live in peace, at peace with ourselves. Also at peace with others. The best thing would be to avoid the situations that will create conflict and make us upset.  

Believe me............. you cannot change others, you can only change yourself. 

The only person who can change what I feel is myself. No one else. Likewise the only person can change your self is you.No one else.

No material possession can remove or release our emotions. A brand new car, a new cell phone or a new land may temporarily make us happy. But any of these things cannot change how we feel. Our emotions remain within us until we release them.

Taking care of ourselves is the greatest way we can love ourselves in a complete and healthy manner. 

And this means accepting our emotions as it is. Letting them never make them stuck within you. Remember, emotions are not good or bad.  They just are. 

Continue to be happy...maintain peace within and all around. 

As always....... balance is the way.

Past, Present and Future

The life we all have got can be full of different situations which change time to time. 

If you/me can be in the present moment here and now then the possibility of getting lost in the regrets of past and worries about the future is very less.

This does not mean that we are escaping from the life responsibilities. But keeping ourselves balanced in this moment. If you and me can look at the past by being in the present moment there could be many things for us to realize. / can gain insights about many things.

Our actions which we have done in the past has become our belongings today. Can any one escape from the consequences of own actions? This is like you are on a field of your own actions and consequences.

We all need to keep smiling, peaceful and happy no matter what situations we are going through. By doing this not only you and me but others around are benefited. If we ever wish peace for the place where we live, this is the initial basic step for that.

You/ me need to become persons of understanding. Then you will not blame, you will not start reasoning, no arguments....... but understanding. When become a person of understanding you look at every one with the eyes of love and compassion.

Our mind goes in to thousand directions at a time. Always either past, present or future. There are plenty of chances that you/me can get lost in any of this. That is why the concept "here and now" has such importance.

Past, present and future is here. When you look at yourself now all these three can be seen. 

The results of what ever the actions conducted in the past is what you own in the present. If you feel you need something different you can change your actions.

If someday if you see your own life story from the beginning to now as a movie in front of you, I'm sure you will realize what karma is.

Plant the seeds of happiness, love and compassion. The fruit will be profitable to everyone.

Every problem is plenty of options

We come across plenty of reasons to be unhappy and that is why you/ me need to be very strong to face this life. 

Practice to see the positive side of every happening. So that we do not get lost in the storms that comes to us.

Life is all about balancing situations. Nothing elseWe cannot escape from the things happening. Still believe me if you have lost a opportunity that means a better arrangement than that is coming ahead. There is no point of worrying about anything.

In this life journey between birth and death what matters is...... in the end whether you lived the life full of love, freedom and happiness. That is all.

People die, things change, friends and relatives leave us, you may loose your job and money, people break promises and so on.So many things could happen. See every trouble and problem come in front of you as a option/opportunity. You will not fail.

Universe has the power of creation. It has the power of making our wishes come true. Our life is like a story we have written or a picture/art we have painted.

For example when you were a child you dream becoming a doctor /healer/ saint/writer or engineer etc. and you work on  for achieving that, you make every effort to make the wish come true. Your thoughts are being focused on your wish. You write the story or you paint the picture of your wish. Ultimately it becomes a reality. This applies to every thing.

Look at your present moment in your own life and you will see what ever has happened to you has been created by your own. 

Disappointments, losses, rejections, troubles, problems and every single issue brings plenty of options in front of you to choose. You are given plenty of opportunities with any problem and never loose balance amidst anything.

Be in love, trust yourself,  be strong and centered. We all are  here with unlimited capacity as humans and never worry, upset or be sad about anything. Keep your inside unaffected what ever comes.

Make sure to paint the picture of life or write the story of life which will bring peace, love, happiness and compassion to your own self and to all others.

Always be with love. We all are created out of love and our natural state is love. The day you empty your head of all unnecessary concepts and conditions... is the day your heart will fully blossom in love. Love shows you the way ............

We come with full option package

You and me and all of us are coming to this earth with a package. As you know we  all are different to one another and obviously this package is also different to one another.

This can be explained as follows.

You/ me and all the humans....when we come to this earth .....we come to a place like an airport. In this air port we are given a suit and a full option package to use from birth to death. A package is given for the tour on earth. The package is being decided before we enter this world.  Who our parents would be and which country we will be born and all being decided at that point. So we come here with all credits for our life trip on earth.

The people who born in Sri Lanka , their bodies are made accordingly to this country. Also the people who born in Europe , their bodies are built according to those conditions.All these are natural wonders.

This is a pre planned journey for all of us. Nothing happens accidentally. The people who cross our path ,the places we go, the incidents we face are all meant to be met by our selves.

So we need to accept ourselves and rest of the world totally. No fighting needed. 

But there is something you /me need to take in to our heads. The package given to us need to used wisely. If you are given a knife and if you touch it in the wrong side your hand will get cut. If you are shown a lake and if you jump in to it without proper understanding about depth, you will sink. Like wise what ever the things included in your package given to you need to be used wisely.

There is a unlimited possibility and capacity which human can reach, it is included in our package. Wisdom is to direct our energies in the correct way.

The package is given for us to enjoy the trip on earth and to use what ever given to us intelligently.

What most people do is they compare their package with other's packages and instead of enjoying the trip they build their own suffering. What a illusion is this....

Is there anything to compare, compete or be jealous or hate anyone or anything? What is the point?

What we need to do is to live in this world caring and sharing. Extend love and compassion to others....

See the complete picture

According to different factors influences...... we all have got physical bodies different to one another. However for all of us, for the survival in this world the physical body is a necessity. Therefore we need to look after this physical body .........Remember without this body life is impossible.

That is why the physical needs should always come first. Since we live in a world where most things are completely misunderstood, mental needs has become the emperor and physical needs are given very poor attention. The result is most people are not healthy and suffering .

From the day we born to the day we die we live with this body. So can you see how important this physical body is....

We all have a responsibility look after our body and fulfill the physical needs. Examples for physical needs would be Hunger, sleep, going to the toilet, washing and cleaning, having sex etc.   

If you are hungry you should eat... if you are sleepy you need to sleep.... But if you are always all the time hungry, you have a problem in your system. If you cannot eat anything is also a problem. Also if you are always sleepy that is also a problem. If you cannot sleep in the night that is also a problem....

Now you and me need to understand that all these needs..... if excessive or zero its a real trouble. This is where we should find the balance.If everything is balanced you are balanced. If you are balanced/ your system is balanced you are peaceful, free and happy.

The physical body which you and me has got to travel in the trip on earth is like a vehicle. You know a vehicle consist of engine, wheels, gear box, seats etc.When all these parts are together and combined we call it a vehicle.

Likewise our body has parts like hands,legs, eyes, head etc.  When we take all this together it is called a human body...

Have you ever thought of what this body made out of. Body made out of five elements/cells. Cells are made out of the five elements too. Earth, water, fire, air and space. Every tiny particle of our physical body are made out of these 5 elements.

To realize this body you need to see it as a whole. You need to see the full picture.

When you see the full picture it is easy to find the center/the balance.

This is common for anything... i tell you something....if you see a part of something ... you have not seen what it is. Also if you see a one side of a person or a object you can be mislead. You need to see the complete picture. Then only you know it.

Trying to separate this body in to parts and trying to realize it ..... you cannot see the complete picture. Similarly for anything you need to see the full picture to know what it is..........

Observe and see the things and people as it is . The complete picture need to be seen....not a strand of it...start with our own body...see how it works.....

Find the balance/the center. Path towards Complete realization .........

Best possible version of our selves

You/me and all of us spend most of our days/time with computers, machines, cellular phones etc. 

When we start living like this what happens is we are out of touch with beautiful nature and missing natural rhythms.

When we start living with nature/natural rhythms.... we  become more compassionate, spacious, greateful and present beings. Actually that is what our planet requires.

All of us need to develop compassion to free ourselves and others from suffering. Look around and see............ people who are close to the nature are more loving, generous and peaceful.

What ever we associate and what ever is around us has a direct impact on our lives. Actually we need more green spaces than buildings and machines...

I feel looking in to the nature deeply ..........may can  make us realize many things better.

Being with nature brings bliss and peace in to depths of our being. We can meet the best possible version of ourselves when we keep close to the nature.

Smile and laugh as much as you can...................

Smile and laugh as much as you can. When you smile and when laugh actually the happiness waves are running allover. Actually it spreads. Vibrations of good energy start flowing. It enhances the connections...lightens burden you carry....inspires everyone around  you etc.

When you smile at someone , he or she smiles back then the people closer to you start smiling wise it spreads. That is what is needed in the present world. Waves of happiness and love needs to flow every where.

Also when laughter is shared it connects people together and happiness blossoms. Laughing boost your energy and diminish any pain. 

If you are going through any kind of difficult situation laughter is a recommended best medicine i would say. It works fast and bring you in to balanced state.  

A good laugh will makes you relaxed as well as recharged. A positive, happy vibrations will serve you well in life.

In any moment you loose balance or experience slightest difficulty try and or laugh..... it brings you back to a balanced state very fast. 

Keep smiling always :)

Negativity can be transformed

Over the years which means for a long period of time you/me and all of us has been ingesting toxins like fear, anger, lust, greediness, jealousy etc instead of love.

The reason is we have touched all these things without being aware/mindful. 

That is why most people are filled with these poison and depressed ,worried and always at war.

If we become aware .............only loving kindness will reign in our hearts. All of us will become compassionate towards every other person.

In life at least once we all would have experienced fear, anger and sorrow. However these kind of negativity can be eliminated and transformed in to love, happiness, peace.

Detoxification can be taken place by being very aware of what is happening inside and around us.

Meditation helps to overcome sorrow, depression, unhappiness.

I would say we all should start meditating at least a few minutes every day. May be from today we can start.

You do not have to make a big effort for this.It is just that in the beginning when you are walking know you are walking, when eating know that you are eating. Means be in the present always. Naturally you are in a kind of meditative state.

After initiated the process by being aware and being in present we can gradually  experience the bliss and peace.

You /me need to touch the refreshing and healing elements like love, kindness, peace etc.

Instead of war and pressure you can bring peace and bliss in to your self by being aware and through meditation.

When lake is without waves......

You/me and all of us has been running for thousands of years on a continuous race. Actually without stopping.

Now this moment... stop for a while and touch the wonders of this present moment. It is refreshing. Actually for us to stop we do not need to have a struggle at all. Its just allowing ourselves to be. 

What has happened is majority of people are dreaming. In other words they are keeping on thinking of a goal. And running. They all are committed to a certain idea of  happiness which they think will happen in future. But it is an idea only. Which is a mind made illusion. If you also dreaming of some thought you are never at peace.  That is why we need to practice  stopping.

Stop means you completely be in present. That is all. That is refreshing.

It is like,
When the waves of lake are calm....The surface of the waters are calm without the waves....The full moon in the sky reflects in it. The lake does not have to run for moon. Moon enters...

Being in present is meditative...refreshing and peaceful.

Nothing Exists without Duality

Nothing in this universe exists without duality. It is the same for all of us. In other words nothing exists without its opposite. Open eyes and look around. You will start noticing this.

I could bring out few examples as day-night, yes-no, heaven-hell, man-woman etc. Everything has its opposite. 

Now you can understand if only we see a part of something. We have not seen the full picture. To see a full picture of somebody/something we need to see the opposite as well. Then you can see totally. That is wisdom.

If we only see one part of anything we are mislead. The day you see it completely is the day you know what it is.

But you/me need to understand that there is nothing wrong with duality. For the things to exist duality is required. For us to experience light, darkness has to be there. 

If we name a person very good, the very bad part also in that person. Good and bad in the same percentage. Half-half.  

Lord Buddha preached that Middle way is the path. In other words its about finding balance and being in the center.

If you are in the center you can see the both sides of your own self. For example your one part could be light and other half part could be dark. When you are in the middle you will know what to use in which way without any harm to anything/any one.

Duality will not be any matter/issue to you/me when we know where the center and if we are in the center. 

Center is the way.

Your life is your responsibility

In this life you need to understand that you only go forward....there is no going backward. Can you go back to your history....your past... the decisions and choices you have made in the past ....can you reverse them?

Say that you have passed your school time. Can you go back to that age and live there. Impossible.

We all were born as baby , then a child, then a youngster.... like wise we go on. Towards forth.

From birth to death we are on a journey forth. If once you missed a opportunity in the past, that does not mean another opportunity will not come in future. Look around and you will see endless opportunities and possibilities. 

Remember that every problem or trouble comes to you as a opportunity. It opens doors for you to find a new way... face a challenge. Stop worrying and take things in a positive manner.

Every person, every incident you come across you are passing them and going forth. In our life some people/incidents bring us pleasure,peace and happiness, some people/incidents make us sad, some might make us angry or jealous.

If you pass incident which made your heart filled with joy. That is nice. But in case if you feel angry, sad or jealous. I would say it is poisonous.

Being angry or jealous towards another being really mean........... you are drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. But ultimately what happens is........... the poison of anger and jealousy will kill your inside gradually.

Keep happy no matter what. Keep in peace no matter what goes on around you. Be strong and wise enough to find where the balance is. That is the secret of happiness and peace.

There is nothing to think that you are a big person. We all are tiny dots in this universe. The more humble you become. You are in the happiness.

If you talk to people you will see many people say what ever happened in their life was caused by another person and they always point the finger to other. Which is a damn lie. You cannot blame anybody for what happens to you. Your life is your responsibility. You should take care of your self. No body can live your life on your behalf.

I tell you example. Think you are walking on a road. At a distance you see a drunken man coming towards with a sword...... Also you notice no one else is on the road. What would you do? You can either turn and find another way to go..... or  you can stupidly walk towards this man.

If you make a stupid decision to go towards this unconscious man..... and if you get cut by the sword. Can you blame the drunken man? or fault is yours. You went knowingly about danger... Your choices and accordingly consequences.

For any reason you cannot blame for another person for your life. Your life is your responsibility. No one is responsible about your own life than you.

The moment you take responsibility for everything in your own life, is the moment you get the power of changing anything in your life. :)

We are on a trip

You /me and all others have come for a trip to this world. We are travelling and this world is one destination. Every born person die. This is really a journey. 

We consist of mind , body and soul.

For us to come to this human world we are given a vehicle and a driver. The vehicle is our body. Do you know who the driver is. Mind is the driver. Real you is your soul.

For the soul to travel the mind is given as a driver and body is given as a vehicle. Driver should look after the vehicle. And you as the owner of mind and body can command what to do.

Now think............ there are no two equal beings in this world. All are different to one another. My vehicle is different to yours......My driver is different to yours. Like wise we have different vehicles and different drivers and we are on different journeys.

Now you understand being jealous or angry about another person's journey is stupid right?

When you are going in your car do you let the driver to take you to where he wants to go or you tell him where to go? Ask from your self.  Or you let the driver start the vehicle and let the vehicle travel in his own? No way.

Who has the privilege to decide which journey you need to go? You need to decide what to do, where to go , how to go etc. Not the driver.

Mind is always tripping. It says thousand and one stories to us. This that and the other thing. This is good, that is bad, want that, do not want etc. And it takes you to different different places. If you go on every journey where your mind takes you to, you will end up lost and insane. That is why we should not let the driver to take us. We should command the driver in which direction where to take the vehicle.

This way , you will be on your real journey. Take your destiny in to your hands. You can always adjust. If you do not like something or some one you have the privilege to change it.

Why most people are unhappy is they have given the driver to take all decisions and they are going where driver wants to. So they are  not on their journey .Result is they are never happy.

Why would people have hundreds and hundreds of problems? They don't do what they feel. Instead doing what the mind says.

One thing is in which ever the way you continue your journey, never harm any one or any thing. 

The purpose for you to exist in this world need to be decided by you.Which profession you want to engage, which person you should marry, where to live, what sort of people should be around  you .......all are your choices.

 Your choices and consequences.

Enjoy, celebrate every moment. Be on your real journey. Be the creator of your destiny. 

What ever the way contribute to the well being of this world. 

When you on your real journey you receive over flowing god blessings too.

Our thoughts and what is reality

Humans have the capacity of creating stories. I see many people like to create stories which are not true/real and to believe them. For them the story and the thoughts are real than the real situations. They always forget what the reality is. Thoughts cover the feelings. People hear and see what they want. Not the actual meaning. 

Very rarely a person with a clear mind can be met. They are the people who can look at the other people/things without a judgment. The majority keeps something in their minds and looking at others and listening to others. So they miss the real situation.

Now the real meaning of the mind is working like a smart mobile phone is understood by myself. My Spiritual Master made me realize this some time back. Actually mind works in the same way like a smart phone. If you have a smart phone it is very easy for you to realize how mind works. Pure mind is like the operating system. The Apps downloaded from different sources are like what human mind has downloaded from external environment. 

The education, family, associates, religion, concepts, habits, conditions are creating apps in your mind which is different to one another.

The final outcome which comes to mind as a thought is filtered by all the applications /externally installed programs .

Consider a set of people and their different mentalities. We cannot blame them for what they think. Because their thoughts are filtered by the apps downloaded by their own. These apps vary to one another. So if we take several people, each person’s thoughts are very different to one another.

The resistance for you /I for maintaining a clear mind is huge.

The nature of majority of humans in the present society is their minds are full of applications. You know what happens too many applications downloaded in to your phone. The phone will be memory full and always stuck. Same way the people who has downloaded many apps cannot think clearly or see clearly. In some people many applications are being downloaded. In some people it is less. 

There is nothing to be upset or sad about what others think or be sad about what they think.  Also never go to blame any one and spoil yourself. This all is  there to realize true nature of humans. 

If you/I have a clear mind we can see the things and people clearly.
