Some Frequently Asked Questions About Life

Overtime, I’ve received several mails from readers pertaining to various questions they have about life, about awareness, suffering, balance/wholeness, enlightenment, relationships, negativity, physical and non-physical aspects. In this post I will look to consolidate some of these frequently asked questions, mostly as a single point of reference. What is the ultimate truth of life? Though […]

Going Through the Layers of Release

Becoming grounded in the state of stability requires a release of the imbalanced force of all the “influences” that are present in our being. If I have to categorize the primary influences, it would be – love, hatred, joy, fear, boredom and sexuality, basically the six modes/flavors of thought and emotion. An influence becomes an […]

Understanding Your Individuality

One of the aspects of having a balanced mindset is that you are no longer prone towards extremist view-points, you don’t see things in a “black and white” manner, rather you start perceiving the “grey areas”, which is what allows you to be free of delusional thinking. For example, the adage of “you can do […]

A Perspective on Forgiveness

I get emails with queries along the lines of – “how do I learn to forgive”, “I did xyz in the past, how can forgive myself”, “he/she did xyz to me in the past, I am not able to forgive this person, but I want to, how do I do it?”, “I feel a strong […]

Understanding Brainev

I mentioned about a product called Brainev (short for Brain Evolution System), in the post Eliminating Anxiety, as an effective assistance to the phase of releasing past momentum and return of focus towards conscious living. This product basically consists of 6 mp3s (labeled level-1 to level-6, each of 30 minutes duration), requiring you to listen […]

Beyond Positive Thinking

I was an ardent reader of “self help” books since the later part of my school days and it became quite an obsession with me during my college days. The recurrent theme of most of these self-help books was the power of “positive thinking”, it was easy to summarize, the message in all these books, […]

The Phase of Release

Everything is essentially “energy” and hence follows all the laws pertaining to energy. One of the truths about energy is that – “energy can neither be created or destroyed, it can only change forms”. We create an imbalance of emotional energy by inhabiting the state of imbalanced thinking and its accumulation, in turn, leads to […]

Inspiration and Deliberate Choice

A large part of conscious living is working with the mindset of making deliberate choices (from a place of being objective) on following what feels like a requirement, responsibility, inspiration or exploration, in your current reality. Once you let go of the past momentum created by unconscious living, where you were mostly dragged around by […]

Being Objective

The dynamics involved in the phase of “letting go” are very different from the dynamics involved in the phase of “conscious living” (or return of focus). The phase of letting-go, or the phase of release, is only required to reach a place of being free of the hold of the past momentum, of emotional and […]

The Foundation of Openness

The process of finding inner freedom boils down to allowing the dissolution of all the emotional, and mental, momentum created by “resistance-based” thinking, or what I would call the “momentum of resistance”. The end of the momentum of resistance is the beginning of the foundation of openness, which is the requisite for inner freedom. However, […]

Dealing with Depression

The state of depression can be seen as an imbalanced low state, or in other words a low state of high intensity/momentum. It’s important to understand that depression can happen at two levels 1. Physiological depression 2. Mental depression (these are not medical terms or categories, I’ve coined them for the purpose of my explanation) […]

From Understanding to Internalizing

If I have summarize the various dysfunctions that people feel in their life, they can be described as below Anxiety – This is an imbalanced aspect of the fear dimension in our thinking. Fear is natural in life, simply because life is “uncertain” (where you can’t even know, with 100% certainty, what’s going to happen […]

Understanding Life

Life-energy in expression/movement is what I call Life. The whole deal of life is about life-energy exploring itself, experiencing itself and expressing itself. Life-energy does have a certain nature which you can sense in your own mind/thinking-space (after all, every mind is made in the image of the mind of life-energy) – some specifics of […]

Learning to Deal with Anxiety

One of the biggest impediments to growth, in a human being, is the force of anxiety. Eliminating the pull of anxiety provides a huge leverage towards living life from a place of inspiration, wisdom and creativity. You can have all the inspirations coming in but there can be no real movement, or action, on your […]

Understanding Wholeness

The nature of experience that stems from a place of wholeness is very different from the experience you had from a place of “imbalance”. In this context, I use the term “imbalance” purely as a relative reference to contrast it with the state of “wholeness”. If you are not in wholeness, you are in imbalance […]

A Different Approach to Thinking

Life is a “thinking energy”, you as a soul/being as well as you as the physical body (with the heart & brain as the intelligence centers) are a form of life-energy and hence have this inherent nature of being a “thinking” entity. Living from a place of wholeness has nothing to do with the “end […]

Overcoming the Resistance of Lethargy

Lethargy can be a force of resistance to “right action”. If there is a presence of lethargy, it’s difficult to follow the inspirations, within you, for action – it’s like your body is not being co-operative to your mind/thinking. You need to be free of the mindset of struggle-based living, where you are moving from […]

Aligning With Your Value System

In the post – a lesson in humility, I talked about how the plane of Earth is a perfect schooling ground for a soul (being) to learn a sense of authentic humility through coming to an understanding of the oneness of life, thus letting go of egoic pride, and seeing through any sense of false […]

A Deeper Perspective on Emotions

Sensitivity, feelings, thoughts and emotions are different terms which we may use without being very clear in ourselves about what they really mean. For example, we use terms like sensitivity, feelings and emotions interchangeably in many ways. It’s important that I define what I mean when I use these terms, in the context of this […]

An Unwavering Peace

If you are presently experiencing a barrage of negativity from your mind, with a constant flux of emotions, it may seem unrealistic to even imagine that one can actually come to a place of unwavering peace – but eventually, as you move through the process of releasing the mind momentum, you inevitably end up in […]

The Resistance of Over-Excitement

The state of over-excitement is a sign of inner restlessness and instability – this imbalance becomes evident when you notice that the states of over-excitement always create the opposite states of a real downer (depression or frustration) as the next cycle. Over-excitement pulls you to one extreme of light natured polarity, as result the next […]

A Natural Patience

The word “patience” can have some gloomy undertones for the mind as it implies “waiting longer”. However, as far as the mind is concerned it can never really understand what patience means, all it can do is develop “controlled impatience” – some people are good at controlling their impatience as a matter of discipline, they […]

Light And Dark Nature of A Desired Reality

There are many books, and websites, available today which teach about the potential to create reality using techniques of visualization. Basically, the technique is to visualize the reality you desire, in your mind, and emotionally create the good feelings that you want to experience through the manifestation of this reality. Such a visualization is what […]

An Individual Journey

You can sense that in spite of being surrounded by billions of living beings you are still inherently alone. This sense of aloneness cannot be helped because you are an individual stream of consciousness; your individual-ness cannot be erased and hence will always create this sense of separateness and thus the feeling of being alone. […]

A Conscious Obsession

Life has an obsession towards itself, quite simply because life is all there is. This obsession of life for itself is what manifests into all forms – the underlying force behind all manifestations of life is this energy of “obsession”. If you try to suppress this nature of obsession in you, it ends up creating […]
