Am I good enough?

Whether overtly or subtly, and to varying degrees, I mostly gauge my worthiness on external things.

If I have the latest gadget, the perfect home, family, friends, the career, the perfect size, looks, personality – if I have all these then I will be fulfilled and feel good about myself – I will be seen to be ‘good enough’.

The truth is, whether the world sees me as ‘good enough’ or not, I can never be truly fulfilled from what I am, what I have, what I do on an external and material level. It is the goodness that is within me that will fulfil me and raise my levels of happiness and contentment.

Let me start tapping into this goodness.

I learn to talk to myself sincerely. I ask myself – who am I? What am I? What is my true nature? Without intellectualising and interfering, I let the questions reach deep within. I spin the questions in the mind and the answers come. Deep down I know my own truth. I need to just harness the power from this truth.

It is this power of truth that will protect me from being drawn into false beliefs time and time again.

 

Om Shanti

AUM

bodyconsciousness

AUM is the eternal sound of creation…… and I exist ……. within this eternity

A – marks the beginning, the start of the journey through time
U – signifies expansion and the sustenance of the creation
M – marks closure – going back to the essence, the point, the seed

AUM…..

And then from the seed creation takes shape once again….
This is the eternal sound and the eternal cycle of creation.
This is the sound of ‘I’, the eternal being…

AUM means ….. I exist
AUM …. I am

 

Om Shanti

Still and Silent

the_one

I take a moment and become still.

I allow each part of my body to slowly relax and as I do that the body responds and becomes very still.

I gently listen to my breath as I inhale and exhale – my breathing becomes slow and deep…

Moving my focus inward, I watch the pattern of my thoughts which have slowed down.

I become aware of there being a distinct stillness within.

Still…..

From within this stillness I am drawn to a very gentle silence that is held within the inner ear.
I listen to this silence and as I do so I become absorbed in this eternal sound of silence.

I stand still in time and within this eternal sound of silence I just ‘am’ …..

 

Om Shanti

Destination of the soul

an_incredible_journey

Deep within the soul there is a yearning…a yearning to reach.

Where to I do not know and yet there is a knowing that it is a place beyond here and now.
If I allow an internal shift of identity to take place – from the consciousness of being a body to that of being a soul – to understand and experience my own existence as a soul and not a body, and to stabilise in that, it opens up unlimited possibilities.

In that awareness I find myself in a place beyond time. It is an experience of my own eternity and truth. In that awareness I am easily able to come into the presence of the Supreme Soul, the Supreme Spirit.
In the presence of His energy and in His company I, the soul, am filled and fulfilled. The internal satisfaction that surfaces is that I have reached …. reached the destinations for the soul.

 

Om Shanti

It Will Pass

the-gift-of-time

When confronted with a challenge, it is as though somehow I allow my mind to become totally engrossed with the person or situation that is challenging me – it becomes the focus of my thoughts and feelings. I may not even be consciously aware of it.

Quite often the situation is relatively small but, with the support of my thoughts and feelings, it becomes huge.

I may be feeling uncomfortable, I may even have been hurt, but thinking and re-thinking will only feed those emotions further.

If I take a moment and stand back form the scene, it gives me an opportunity to reflect on the matter and understand how best I can manage the situation. It takes courage to stop, step back, learn and accept that in life everything that comes will pass.

The situation will pass, the pain will pass and the people will pass – it will pass.

Stop and watch the scenes in life – they will pass if I allow them to. Will I let them pass?

 

Om Shanti

I am!

sanskars

Originally and eternally my nature, my personality has always been one of virtues and qualities.

I, the soul, am born into a body and through that I perform actions. I play my various roles through this body as I act and interact with other souls and with matter.

As I do this a natural mechanism comes into play – An action that is repeated many times becomes a habit and when a habit is repeated of a long period of time it becomes a personality trait. Over time I also accumulate many experiences and memories that influence me in the actions I chose to do.
This process, that is at play, has made me who I am – the person I know and see and believe to be me.

This personality of ‘mine’ – the one that I have become – has weaknesses, expresses vices and generates so many waste thoughts and feelings. It causes sorrow to the self and others because of the direct influence this personality has on my behaviour.

However, originally and eternally this is not me, not really. Neither am I the body, nor the roles and thus I am also not the personality I believe myself to be.

Step away from the false belief and chose to be who you really are.

 

Om Shanti

Eternity

Shiva

Today I had a thought: What is eternity?

Eternity is forever, something without a beginning or an end. And yet eternity is now, this present moment.
Once this time passes by, it is gone and so no longer exists. A moment yet to come is unknown and perhaps not even there.
So the only eternity I really know is in the here and now.

Let me use this precious moment in the best way possible. Let me use it to love, to laugh and to share happiness.

If I can do this then my every moment will be valuable, through to eternity.

Om Shanti
