"Be, Do & Have" "Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want."- Margaret Young
I have practiced Religion for over many years as of now! Let me share some insightful thoughts and quotes that have made me stand stronger on my feet, and in my self-realization and realization with God, and it's spirituality, religion and awakening. For many long years I heard people say that they practiced Religion, but I am sure they did not, because if they might have had been doing it correctly ,they would have had a mental peace within themselves, which could never be shattered with any damn thing. Reading books, praying and meditating is not just few of the things that one does and thinks he/she is spiritual enough or abides by a Religion, There is more to it. I practiced Religion, I devoted myself to the books, and the wisdom ,reading between the lines, and trying to understand, and putting in all the dark and the light sides in my day to day life routine. If I have inner peace I am Spiritual, and if I do not have any, I am not Spiritual or have never been touched close by any of the Religions, that I thought I read about or practiced (as simple as that).
Stay with yourself, bring yourself to the present moment, maybe by just listening to your breath, maybe by looking at something in the room. Then quietly, softly, give yourself permission to make a new choice if you wish. Embrace a new truth.
It's a pleasure sharing this in here. I would certainly want people to read it and put it into action. Spread the word.
Many religions tell you to go into the mountains and sit there for years to achieve enlightenment. This is the extremely slow way. You are not interacting with anyone. How can you bring up the negative within you if there are no people around to push your buttons.
This is why being in the world and interacting with other people is the best spiritual practice you can get. Your greatest enemies are your greatest teachers.
If you are tempted to go to the Himalayas to reach enlightenment, forget it. Stay where you are. You will go to higher levels of consciousness by dealing with button pushers all day.
“Meditation means a process of removing all that has been forced upon you so that you can become again a child.”
"There are only two types of people: one, who escape from their loneliness the majority, the ninety-nine point nine percent, who escape from themselves; and the remaining point one percent is the meditator, who says, "If loneliness is a truth, then it is a truth; then there is no point in running away from it. It is better to go into it, encounter it, see it face to face, what it is. - Osho
Your ego is your judge. Your ego is your jury. And your ego is your executioner. In other words, its the only thing that causes problems in your life.
Decide for today that you will refrain from judging others. See each person as a beautiful creation of God, no matter what your differences. Choose to see Oneness instead, and the eternal connectedness that the Love of God gives us. See everyone in Love. It will raise your vibration, even if only for one day; but once you have been there, you will want to go back to feel it again & again because it is your own freedom.
Find peace within your heart today. It is there, hiding behind the illusions of... fear. Your level of peace is a good gauge for where your connection to God/Source is at any moment. When you find peace in the chaos, you know that you are deeply connected to God.
When you have anxiety, you know that you may have lost that connection, or perhaps your "signal" is low. Go within to boost your connection. You will know you are fully connected by the level of peace that you feel.- Sherri Lane
We who are alive in this extraordinary time are witnessing a revolution in humanity's consciousness, and in its experience of itself. In fact, we are creating it.
If you imagine that you are your body, you will experience Life as an expression of the body. When you understand that you are your soul, then you will experience Life as an expression of the soul.- Neale Donald Walsh
We say We are always right, and we at times are wrong, Yes I do understand that the same imply's for the God, We often blame him for certain things, at times, and then we say, It must be God's wish. What about us/we? We do mistakes, do we rectify them? God does rectifies his mistakes, if he does any. God is God, you cant question him, right? At times we are in a worst of a situation and in the best one. We find ourselves in a situation when our dreams don’t come true, no matter how hard we worked for it. We often face out loved ones die in our arms, and we are in a situation we cant help. We cry and ask God Why? Well maybe God never wanted your loved one to suffer, and wanted you to be strong enough to change the lifestyle you had been living, and now changing it to the best possible way, For the person that lived(the one you loved) had no other choice left, and had to go. God say’ be brave my child, (ascertaining that Life is a cycle of Birth & Death, and all manifestations and materialistic approaches are the ones that grow and end in here.) The dreams we dream are too away from the actions we do, and the effort we put in. We are not in content with what we have, and if at times if it is so, that we are, we have nothing to fear, no loss. Troubles are part of life, but most important is to face them.
"Who does not thank for little will not thank for much."- Estonian proverb
Know that contentment is never found by adding anything, but is found by subtracting whatever is artificial and illusory.- Vernon Howard
Religion is not in the books, Spirituality is not a Lifestyle until unless one sees the light and the path and understands the worst and learns the best out of it. You do not see certain things (God) for that matter and presume, assume them to be there, You again as per self-convenience, judgement and thought process place it with the happenings in your life. Right and Wrong is not the question, here that is asked for(Yes we all question God), but have we ever answered to what God has always, ever asked us?
If you want guarantees in life, then you don't want life. You want rehearsals for a script that's already been written. Life by its nature cannot have guarantees, or its whole purpose is thwarted. - Anonymous, Male, India
