It is clear that we do not know where our thoughts come from. It is as if we had a continuous transmitter : the mind and an amplifier receiver that makes us identify with it : the ego which dictates where the energy should be sent. We are thereby unconsciously feeding global disorder, whilst blaming others, instead of taking responsibility for ourselves!
Perhaps now we can better understand the value of choosing to invest in our recovery, our liberation, rather than sharing our perdition in a mundane charitable impulse! Also known as the false savior syndrome.
Expanding one’s consciousness, stretching it, raising it, this is almost the only life purpose of humans, this is what we are invited to do every second of our lives. And yet it is the last thing we humans want to do.
For shamans it is crucial, yet not enough for they must also expand their imagination, constantly seeking all other forms of intelligence in every realm, to communicate and interact with them, to channel their protocols, they cannot tolerate any limits to their imagination.
Their life is a permanent asceticism, a constant challenge, an endless search to expand their horizons and perceptions because as they progress they face ever deeper and more complex issues.
Going beyond the limits of reason, through meditation or sadhana, this has nothing to do with a mental or intellectual exercise. It is not up to the intellect alone to enact rules, behavior, thinking, this would be to exceed its function, it must serve, not be served; to challenge this strong belief that we must always and in all things be right, overcoming the fear of losing our minds, armed with our faith alone and the fervent desire to overcome this fear.
Tasting the ecstasy, the essence of freedom which just stands there, hidden by the veil of fear that only the intrepid innocents can torn apart by laughing and singing!
Every slightest annoyance nibbles freedom, I always choose to be upset or annoyed or sad or hopeless, I know deep inside that I feed these statements which alienate me, bring down my vibrational frequency, nevertheless I keep on feeding them. Certainly, the choice for most, is : « the easier, the better », as we are lazy, easier often tempts us.
It is to look at without judgment, to acknowledge without cheating, then recognize this unconscious fascination causing us to be alienated and decide to evolve instead. Request all necessary assistance, search all available tools, and guides if necessary. “Nothing belongs to me, nothing is me,” this should be one of the most powerful mantras, whose tireless repetition would open the way to various and fertile consequences, carriers of emancipation, seeds of creativity, fatal blows to our limits.
For what can remain if, « me », « myself », « I » and « mine », dissolve in the experience of the presence in the Now? Nothing but a laughable memory … Here we are touching on the true inner alchemy, the essence of Tantra, yet there is no need to name this experience if it is to get closer to the meaning of these often misguided terms. The alchemical equation is: Dissolution of « me », « myself », « I » and « mine », = rise of the Self.
What are we talking about when we say “mind”?
The mind is tirelessly and continuously thinking, always hungry, never satiated, deciding arbitrarily the order and hierarchy of all thought-forms, capable of unleashing in the brain a sophisticated internal chemistry according to their joyful, sad or anguished constitution …Left to it’s own nature it cannot make any connection with the heart.
A balloon that swells in vain then bursts, leaving only a foul smell.
We’d better establish a harmonious balance dedicated to the natural law.
Let’s say no to the prison of the mind and take refuge instead in our heart, where freedom awaits us.
