What Are You Driven By? – Part 2

Posted on by Sen.

This is a follow up on my previous post – What are you driven by? The term “love”, being so widely used for so many different contexts, can create a lot of imagination in the mind about what it means to be “driven by love” – hopefully you don’t imagine this state to indicate some […]

Dissolving the Negative Ego

Posted on by Sen.

Here I am using “negative ego” as a term, I am not using “negative” as an adjective to define ego. The ego is basically the “I” reference in our physicality, and inherently it’s essential for our physical existence to have a structure, meaning and perspective. The problem is basically with the negativity that creeps into […]

What Are You Driven By?

Posted on by Sen.

A look at your mind will easily let you know what’s the predominant feeling you are driven by, it has to be one of these – hatred, fear, sexuality, boredom, joy, love. We are not necessarily driven by one feeling alone, but you can always sense what’s the predominant driving force in your life. It’s […]

How Deliberate Creation Fits in With Allowing

Posted on by Sen.

A lot of people misunderstand the pointer of “allowing”, or surrendering to what is, as a means to become “passive” rather than using it as an understanding to enhance their capacity to live a deliberate life of well-being and growth. The application of allowing is supposed to work in conjunction with the application of deliberate […]

An Example of Dissolving a Fear through Allowing

Posted on by Sen.

There was a recent query in the comment section from a reader dealing with a certain fear in the mind, wanting to understand how to release its hold. I thought it would be useful to use this example to elucidate the actual process that’s involved in dissolving a certain fear in a state of allowing. […]

The Creator Mindset

Posted on by Sen.

In the last post I talked about the state of Inner Wholeness which is about coming to a place free of resistance created by accumulation of negative energy from the past and momentum of negativity in the mind. The state of inner wholeness is extremely conducive to allowing your desired realities to manifest at a […]

Inner Wholeness

Posted on by Sen.

A lot of words like “happiness”, “bliss” and “fulfillment” create a skewed imagination, in the mind, about what it feels like to have a space of inner wholeness. The deal with inner wholeness is that it’s a state of balance or stability, it’s not necessarily a state of a constant high where you jump out […]

3 Steps to Become Completely Free of Fear

Posted on by Sen.

One of the biggest challenges of physical life is dealing with fear. The brain being a survival machine is prone to be “wary” of life all the time, it’s constantly on the guard, worried about the future, doubting the possibility of a positive outcome, confused about existence and always wondering if its missing out on […]

What is Negativity?

Posted on by Sen.

The whole deal of coming to an inner balance is to be free of the hold of negativity. It’s important that I give a clear definition of what I mean by “negativity”, so that a reader’s mind does not run into a misinterpretation of it. The challenge of using words to convey a knowing is […]

Is Efforted Focus Required For Manifestation?

Posted on by Sen.

You see a lot of books on law of attraction which talk about focusing strongly on the reality you desire to create, and to stay in this focus single mindedly until it manifests. Scientifically this is very true, it takes a single minded focus for a seamless manifestation of a desired reality – if your […]

Understanding Anger

Posted on by Sen.

Anger by itself is a very normal expression in a human mind, however an intense/overwhelming anger that grips your being, to the point where you sense that you’ve lost control of your reaction, is a symptom of a high momentum of negativity, in this case an imbalance in dark nature. Anger can get overwhelming when […]

The Probability of Desire Manifestation

Posted on by Sen.

Desire is a thought of creation and this thought has the fuel of your “interest” (emotional and mental interest). This fuel, of your interest, is the initial propelling force that launches your desire into the space of life-energy and it’s added to your already existing life-stream. Your life-stream is basically the movement of life-energy towards […]

A Life Free of Compromises

Posted on by Sen.

The difference between someone who leads a “reactive” life and someone who is conscious of his/her ability to attract reality (their potential for creation) is that the former lives in compromises while the latter always stands true to his/her heart’s choice. I am using “heart” as a metaphor here, by heart’s choice I mean the […]

The Question of Free Will

Posted on by Sen.

The deal with free will is that you have it when you realize that you have it, until then you are basically a puppet to your external conditioning and survival mindset. Free will is a choice which is always available to you owing to the fact that you have the capacity to create your reality […]

Understanding the Desire to Show Off

Posted on by Sen.

If you look at a scenic landscape, a glorious sunset, a vast expanse of tulips, a preening peacock, a star lit sky – there is an immediate sense of awe where you feel appreciation for the beauty depicted by nature; it’s considered a very divine experience, by many, to appreciate nature. When you appreciate nature, […]

Insights on Deliberate Creation

Posted on by Sen.

The whole idea of deliberate creation is to understand your potential to create your desired reality without struggle. The way I define struggle is – “An action that does not come from a place of inspiration, but from a place of fear, through belief in lack”. Action will be required, in some form, before a […]

A Non-physical Perspective

Posted on by Sen.

What we call “physical” is just small clusters of energy vibrating in a dense manner. Energy has no boundaries, but each physical form we see does have “visible” boundaries due to the “condensation”/clustering of energy – this is the play of duality in the midst of non-duality. The term “non-duality” is the crux of a […]

Becoming Fearless Within

Posted on by Sen.

One of the most deluded ways of living life is to live it for the “pursuit” of happiness. I don’t mean “deluded” in a derogatory way, but just as a factual way of saying that it’s not the most prudent way to live. Happiness is the basic necessity for a harmonious functioning of the body […]

Integrating Your Light and Dark Nature

Posted on by Sen.

I always describe the natural vibration of life-energy as “wholeness”. I used to refer to it as “pure positive” in some of the older posts but that term was highly misleading, just as the term “negative” is misleading. The reason why “wholeness” is a better term to describe the natural vibration of life-energy is because […]

You Are Here For Growth

Posted on by Sen.

There is a lot of misunderstanding about the word “negativity” and this misunderstanding is at the root of creating “actual negativity” in most people. The “actual negativity” is resistance to growth – that’s what negativity really is. You are not here to sit in a feathered nest with no challenges, you are here to grow […]

The Pain of Change

Posted on by Sen.

The mind is inherently afraid of pain of any form – be it physical pain or emotional pain. The irony is that we go through a lot of pain in our life just to avoid facing a certain pain that we fear. For example, the fear of facing the pain of being rejected by our […]

Finding Love

Posted on by Sen.

For a lot of us feeling “unloved” is probably one of the biggest sadness generating factor, it can even lead to stark depression or imbalanced behaviors of frustration. Also, there some of people who don’t really feel “unloved”, in fact they may get a lot attention from the outside, but feel a lack of that […]

Live Life Your Way

Posted on by Sen.

During our childhood we are mostly dependent on elders to take care of us and instruct us on “how to be”, be it our parents, teachers, relatives or some external authority. The schooling system being focused on “group education” cannot really cater to individualistic needs, it’s not customized for the needs of every child, rather […]

How to Connect With Your Inner Being?

Posted on by Sen.

Imagination is the mode of communication between the mind and the inner being. The term “inner being” basically refers to your aspect as the life-stream focused on this body. You can say that your inner being is connected to the “non-physical” realm of consciousness, the wholeness of it. Your mind is observing the physical reality […]

How to Live With a Conscious Mind?

Posted on by Sen.

Creation of a new reality requires some form of “change”, and this change usually would entail the dissolution of some parts (or all) of the old reality, you can call it the “consequences” of allowing a new reality. A conscious mind is more aware of the consequences of a change than an unconscious mind. By […]
