The Chemist

chemist

How aware am I of the reality that is around me? Can I see clearly the facts or am I living in a virtual reality?

I may drive along a road every day, but when someone asks me if there is a chemist on that road, what is my response? Perhaps it is “Oh, I am not sure, but I think there may be one!”
And then the next time I drive on that road my awareness is ‘awake’ and I look for chemists and see there are 5 or 6 of them.

So what makes me register what I am ‘seeing’? One is to see with my physical eyes and the other with my subtle eyes. What is it that enables me to see the reality of this world?

If I see this world with the awareness of being a passenger in a car on a journey through life, it will look very different from the one I see if I stop and become involved in a side scene.

Awareness is the root of my vision and thus experience of life. What awareness am I keeping? Do I even know?

Om Shanti

Become Blind

become_blind

If I see someone’s weakness it is as if the soul becomes infected.

My vision will focus on that weakness as the basis of their personality. Then everything else that follows – my thoughts, words, actions and feelings – will be coloured by that.

They are the ones with a weakness and yet it is me who creates and holds the waste thoughts and negative feelings within the self. I then nurture these types of thoughts of feelings by re-asserting the existence of the weakness. I ‘feed off it’ and thus enable it to grow and set up home within the self.

Whether they are right or wrong, doing something good or bad, why should that control the thoughts and feelings that I experience?

I need to make myself blind to the weaknesses of others, not just to be able to maintain healthy relationships, but
to protect my own inner self from being ‘infected’ and infectious.

Don’t become ‘infected’, become blind to the weaknesses of others.

 

Om Shanti

Hall of Mirrors

mirror

A mirror allows me to see myself in a way that others see me but which I cannot otherwise see.

When we walk into a Hall of Mirrors we are able to see many different reflections of ourselves from different perspectives. We may appear short, or tall, fat or thin etc. Each mirror holds a different vision of me which reflects back for me to see.

We often talk about relationships as mirrors. Different people consistently generate uncomfortable feelings in us or make us react in a certain way. Instead of blaming or avoiding these people, if we can see these relationships as our mirrors for ourselves we will be able to see something about ourselves which we may not be aware of.

Low self-esteem and we appear short, over ambitious, and perhaps greedy, appearing fat, egotistical and tall or maybe trying to deceive others or myself and appearing crooked.

When we see that the image in the mirror is not right then we will take action to correct it – after all we don’t want others to see us like that.

Are you checking yourself in the mirrors that come in front of you?

 

Om Shanti
