I am not mind

but I experience it !

Reason the Reason

What did you do so far today?

You may come up with many things or tasks you accomplished or yet to accomplish.

What did you do so far in you life?

You may come up with important achievements or major challenges faced in your life.

If you dig deep, all you did so far is engaging the mind in one thing or another. Every fraction of second your mind continue to reason to conclude the information, continue to reason to accept something, continue to reason to reject something, continue to reason why you did something, continue to reason why you want to do something, continue to reason why your right, continue to reason why others are in-correct. Continue to reason why you need to dream, continue to reason what you dreamed. Continue to reason why you need to compare with next person.

Mind fuels itself on reason. “Reason” supplies the needed energy to continue your thought stream. Branching out from one reason to other and another. It created a tree with complex branches, size of whole earth.

If want to sell something, you need to tell stories until customer is hooked to one of reasons from your stories. If you want to convince your family members, they will get convinced once they find a convincing reason in your story. Or others may reason that your story is not reasonable.

Reasoning is a chain reaction, it starts with an idea, idea itself forms out of convinced reason. Reason helps to create another idea, idea creates more reasons in chain of thoughts. Every day, every fraction of second we are succumbed to reasoning mind. We are totally lost in this reasoning, anything else we do is nothing compare to time and energy we spend on reasoning. This will create an illusion called “Duality”. Reason separates you from things you see. It creates the self-identity. It creates the whole universe for you. Strong reasons or ideas create strong beliefs. Strong beliefs create strong passion. Strong passion creates narrow  mind to achieve something. It will create strong self-identification. In other words it will create strong duality. Strong duality does not let go of illusion of self identify. Strong attaching to self creates the misery and sorrow.

How we get out of the reason? Can we get out of it by reasoning the “way to get of it”? No way, the moment you start reasoning, you lost the grip on it. It’s catch 22. This reasoning is so strong that, it is not easy to get rid of. In fact we are afraid of get way from it, because it gives you a reason that, it is you. You can not get rid of yourself !!! remember catch 22!.

One and only way to get rid of it is by not reasoning, cultivating the mind not get lost in reason after reason. With carefully watching the mind and let the reason come and go way. By continuous practice with out falling for reason. You need to be mentally strong to be not fall for reasoning mind. That can only achieved by improving the concentration. More you develop concentration, more you aware of your mind. More you aware of your mind, more you can watchful of reasoning mind and let it go off it. More you let go off it, more you get grip on the mind.

Remember, you can not use reasoning mind to win the reasoning mind. That is why you pick a method to focus on something and improve the concentration. Your method can be anything, it should not look for reason to do it, it should not know what is the end goal. Even it knows the end goal, it should not attached to the goal. Just blindly practicing the method everyday, you calm down the reasoning mind. Once reasoning slowness down, foggy cluster on your thoughtful mind gets more clarity. It see the things as it is than the way you want to see.

After continues practice for several days or weeks or months or years, you reach a stage where unnecessary reason goes away. You just use reason to live your domestic day to day life.

Words can not justify the mind which crossed the reasoning. The mind which cross the reasoning, does not need a reason to love. It does not need a reason to forgive. It does not need a reason to live. That mind simply exist in pure bliss.

Challenges are angels to remind the self.

Challenges are our best friends. They are  with us, they provide opportunity to change ourselves. They are neither road blocks nor the stepping-stones for ego, they are purely there to help us to remind the pure and happy self.

Time is not in wall clocks or wrist watches. It is just measurement of earth rotation on itself. The real experience of time is felt by continuous series of events happening in our life. We categorize them as good or bad based on the emotions we exercise through those events. Some of the events cause strong emotional reactions on the self. The event itself is neutral, the way we perceive it and customize it according to our view-point generates the reactions. Based on our past memories, personal character, morals we follow and beliefs we hold, our emotions may be strong or weak, good or bad on that event.

Strong emotions we exercise  dominates the logical sense, we submit to emotions, our reactions lose the balance too. Nature always manifest to help us, because we are not living in the nature, we are the nature.  The emotions we exercise strongly become our own wishes. Nature manifests itself to recreate similar emotions through different future events. Place and people involved in the event may differ, but emotions we wish will repeat. As long as we focus more on persons involved in the event, or their reactions, we miss the bigger idea, we feel like we lost control on event, other people have to change.

Let me repeat once again,  “The emotions we exercise strongly become our own wishes to the nature. Nature manifest itself to recreate similar emotions through different events”. Its our own wish to the nature through our reactions causing and creating new future events. Change should come from “within” by being watchful of our own emotions, our own reactions to events. Unfortunately emotions override the logic, we do not even remember what we read just now in the nick of the moment. But we win this by help of one angel. It’s name is “Awareness”.

Awareness is the key to understanding the self, if we can understand ourselves, we can understand all kind of beings, we can understand the architecture of universe.  Awareness can be developed through prayers, through meditation and through being aware of yourself every moment. Which ever technique you choose to follow, do not forget the goal of  “being aware in every moment”.  Let not your emotions master you, you be the master. Just the way, every person in the family is important to create the family, every being is important to create nature.

Be watchful of your emotions in this moment, moment after moment and every event, slowly you pick up the awareness of emotional self.  Do not hug the unhappy emotions, do not hold them, let them go.  One step at time, we slowly master the opportunity of challenges given by angels to help us to master the self.

Heaven and Hell are right now on earth through everybody mind. Make a good choice of choosing which one you want to live in.  I choose heaven by letting go of hell. You are next.
