Looking for a Guru?

Almost everyone, at some point in time, or life, searches for a Guru. Someone who shows you the way, takes your hand in her, or his, hands and leads you to the light. Someone you can talk to, connect with.

One (very) common thing that almost any Guru will tell you is that ‘God is within you’. For those of you who haven’t yet found a Guru, and are feeling lost, maybe helpless, know this, that if God is within you, then definitely so is the Guru.

The ‘Peace’ is right there, within you, within easy reach. Just sit down, make yourself comfortable, relax, let it go, relax all those muscles, close your eyes softly, take a deep breath and just let go. When I say let-go, I mean let it flow. If there is sound, let it come, flow in through you ears, let it go wherever it wants to. If there are thoughts, let them come in, open the flood gates, let them all rush in. But just try and not drown in the thoughts and be swept away. Do not be swept away, stay exactly where you are. Let the thoughts come, let them go. You just be. Eventually, your mind will relax, and go blank.

There are many techniques you can employ to sit and meditate like this. Do a Google search and search on YouTube. You will find abundant help.

Empower the Guru within you; God is not far behind.

 

Feeling displaced and disillusioned…

If you are feeling displaced and disillusioned, it could be your first steps towards self-realization. Maybe it was these feelings that moved ancient sages and they just got up, left everything and everyone behind, and walked away. These feeling could be the beginning of an inward journey, if you do decide to take it on. A subtle invitation to move away from everything you know, everything that provides you with comfort and makes you feel safe and secure. A move away from everything that is warm and familiar, and re-assuring. An invitation to shatter all illusions of safety, security, and seemingly ever-lasting abundance of “love” and care and being looked after; looked after by your family, so-called friends, maybe genuine friends, and/or other adoring fans.

Step out. Out of that shiny, golden circle. Move away, from “home”, or your “comfort-zone” (I feel like Dr Evil now :)). Move into the dark jungle. Into the unknown. Into the abyss. The abyss of not knowing, not seeing, not hearing, or bothering about where you are going; what you’re stepping into. (If it’s cow poo, so be it.) Where will it all lead? No destination, just a path, many, many dark jungle paths. Start walking… 🙂

About “Love” …

Love. Peace. Happiness. Quietness. Will lead you to a quiet understanding. An understanding of you, yourself, and that which is not you. In the vast emptiness. In this space of dark coolness. Your path will shine for you. Go, don’t go, doesn’t really matter. All is as it should be. Accept it, I say again, as many have before me. Accept it. Close your eyes. Take deep, satisfying breaths. And smile. 🙂

A smile will take you, can take you, where not many, or any, has gone before. The blessed land, or no land. Empty space, vast empty spaces, of peace, and tranquility. Where there is nothing else, but smiles.

Love, is not between two people. Never between two people. Love is everywhere. Kind of like your God element. It is not “between”, but all around. What two people have, is understanding, companionship. Two happy people.

Two not so very happy people; what they have “between” them is unreasonable expectations, tiring ties of bondage, stifling strangleholds on each other’s necks (not literally, though sometimes maybe), growth, and progression.

The coming together of two pure souls, two pure intentions, is always sans agenda. It’s a natural, smooth, effortless flow, that results in abundance of positivity, and a beautiful sweet understanding, adding value to both their lives, personalities, and environment. If that is not happening. If there is nothing but agitation and annoyance and frustration, then you are where you are NOT MEANT TO BE. Stop it. Let go. Move on. You are causing problems, for your own self (which is alright, you have a right to), and for the other person and those around (which is not alright, you have no right to). If you are not able to stop, get help.

If you are getting burned, it is a good idea to move your self away from the fire. Standing there and cursing the fire is not going to help much.

Want vs Need

I used to be a compulsive shopper. It was like employing whatever I had at hand. There’s TV, I will watch it. There’s a mountain, I will climb it. There’s rain, I will enjoy it. And in case I have money, I will spend it. 🙂 And of course, soon (not soon enough) I realized that it is a problem. And I started employing (my word for the day :P) this “thought” I think I had read somewhere; or maybe someone had told me about it. That whenever you see something that you feel like spending money on, stop and think whether you want it, or you need it. Buy it, only if you really need it. And I must say that it has worked fabulously; this exercise.

And so in life. Practice discrimination between what you want, and what you need. Discard what/whom you don’t really want (to keep having in your life). It is taking up space, creating rot, and a lot of negative energy. Anyways, if you have been a good girl (or boy) the universe WILL give you what you (really) need… 🙂

I have to be up early tomorrow, to catch the morning show for this movie, and I am not able to sleep. I am so, so awake. Hope I am able to make it; I really want to watch this movie. Pray for me good souls. Pray that I am able to make it for this movie. I want to. I need to… 🙂 😉
