In “Knowing the roots” the main focus was on the cause behind any action or reaction happening in our life. To create awareness about our every reaction good or bad. Every good action or reaction too does not have too many causes, and shocking enough they too spring from our Ego. Actions based on love, sympathy, compassion, empathy or consideration arise from the centre of ego satisfaction. To live a totally aware life makes a call to understand drivers for so called good actions and reactions too.
But once we are aware that what was the inner cause, the mind drivers. What is next? The toughest point is about creating understanding of self. Because we live a totally unmindful life. Once my friend was ask to write 20 points on herself, and it got really tough for her. She was not able to get over 10. She could not figure out a list of 20 things about her ownself. That makes me realize the unmindfulness. What we do is most of the times done in such a unmindful state that we don’t understand the reason or cause behind it. But once we understand and come in a mindful state than we are in the state of having choices. We have the power to choose our reactions. Weather we want to get angry and shout hysterically, or see the whole situation from a new point of view. I love to exercise this choice in my life, it makes me unpredictable 🙂
Feel the inner power grow with heightened awareness!!
As every action of ours springs from some deep cause to it. I am referring these causes as roots. There are not many roots or causes or we may even say mind drivers that make us to react a certain way. All the people have a set of roots and their reactions emerge from those roots. For all the negative reactions in our life, Fear is the main root.
Fear is such a strong root, that all of our negative actions spring only from this root. Fear is the base of all negative feelings. I could have started with something positive while explaning the roots, but I choose to explain fear that governs most of our life actions and situations. Yes situations because our actions give rise to the situations of our life. Many times we may not be aware but many of our positive feelings also arise from fear. Fear is a vast word pregnant with various forms of emotions. When we feel anger towards ourself or towards the other it is a deep seated fear that is coming out of us.
When someone shouts we also shout, so that our voice is heard, trying to shout in anger as loud as possible to supress the voice of the other. Here comes the fear of losing the hold of the situation or the matter. It is our big ego in play. Ego is the fear of mind. The fear of losing the self. We all are the victims of this big fear, and under this fear we keep on responding without any awareness. Next time you feel anger, it may be difficult for you to get aware at the moment, because fear is all over your body and mind you cannot overcome it. But after you have done with try, figure out the root from where it arises.
Jealousy is a fear springing from the feeling of inferiority. We can feel jealous only when we feel the other is some way superior to us. Forgetting our blessings and our uniqueness. Forgetting the beauty and qualities universe has specially bestowed only on us.
Understand the fear. Many people have come to me asking to help them to come out of some addiction. When we get addictive towards something like drugs, smoking or drinking we have indentified our whole being unconsciously with the addiction. Coming out of any addiction means to loose a part of our identity. Its difficult, but awareness can make it happen.
Create awareness in your life and in your actions
The best times of my life had to be spend under some rigorous training by AD. He made me to live a tough life for quite a sometime, for which I feel thankful now. Without those trainings, these days of shinning would not have been existed. The life needs a discipline and a constant awareness. Every action than needs to be understood, the bad or the good. If its love or the anger. With awareness comes the understanding about the root of the feeling. All feelings have root, and if you are not aware of the root than it is done in sleep. More about roots in coming posts…..
Since the universe blessed me with senses and one good working mind………….I had spent lot of time analysing people and looking at different situations trying to analyse them from all directions. I had made my mind over work at times in analysing…well here is a secret people don’t really allow it and know it when I am trying look deep and understand what is the true nature……so I try to lock their attention in my smile :-). All the years I kept on with my practices……and one thing that I understood was people don’t have too many mind drivers, they are almost same or may be actually be same for everyone that make them to act and take decisions. As I understood all the mind drivers are minds play to keep us engaged in the play of life……….which are mere illusions the journey got interesting which got more self directed with time. I am here to share my experiences till the journey comes to end with Moksha……..my ultimate goal
