About believing in

It is phenomenal to know in this life journey:
You don’t need to believe in all your dreams. Yet, it would be best if you dreamed big enough regardless you believe in it or not. It would be a paramount life journey if you believed that all knowledge exists to inform and teach; all wisdom appears to guide, and all insights and guidance happen to show you the path, all in all. That’s it.

Inward Mindfulness

Be mindful of your breath as you slow down your respiration.

Then move your mindfulness to the center of your chest, and within, to your heart. Be aware of the quietness till you get lost. Move your mindfulness into space between the physical and the spiritual bodies wherein the heart exists as the bed of the soul. The quiet stillness in this sacred space is so unique and memorable.

Be centered for a moment. Be kind and gentle with the inward movement. You just “be.” This sacred space is your soul searching. You have left everything else behind because of this.

You become the sacredness of oneness because there are no words or visualizations or sensory stimulation needed.

You become the oneness because you become aware that all knowledge exists, all wisdom appears, all insights and guidance happen, all in all, that is.

When you desire a particular insight, all you have to do is call it forth, and all happen effortlessly.

This is the right moment to spend as much time as you desire with this heightened state of awareness. You are simply noting to yourself your own experience without expectation or preconceived ideas.

You can bring your awareness back into your physical body when you are ready.

Morning Meditation

Newly buds greet the morning sun.
Ears hear the morning birds’ call.
Eyes see into the sky of the mind.
My sense feels how every smile in the morning has power.
Even every half-smile blooms every perfected bud to the fullness.
The gratitude heart then unfolds on every leaf.
Gradually, the obstacles of freedom start to dissolve.
Clarity illuminates the confusion.
Wisdom prunes ignorance.
Positivities then reborn to celebrate the day.
Yes, how amazing life is.

Be WHO YOU ARE

It is your mind that creates the world.

If you hear a voice within you saying ‘you are not a painter,’
then, by all means, paint … and that voice will be silenced.

The Magical Process of Becoming

The total of our being (i.e., existence) is like the seed of a plant or a tree. Things that happening throughout days as the rain of fertilizer that grows the twigs, leaves, flowers, and fruits. The fruits then bear seeds.

The most potent and remarkable fact is that even though we think about our being with the dichotomy thinking process (the division of one whole idea, thought, or concept into two separate and unrelated ideas), the actual happening is inseparable.

The process of becoming has no duality. In the fruits, there are seeds. The seeds, even though unseen, actually produce roots, stalks, and so on.

With particular and enough freedom, all of them grow plenty and lavishness. There is an abundance of continuity and discontinuity processes that is beyond discussion. It is abundant because the whole process is not void in time. The past and present together are welcoming and embracing the future. The total being is happening in one miraculous unfolding of life.

There is the reason why we need to just reflect on when the time has come. The total being is manifest before us in realtime, causes and circumstances. All the happening is always matters and has hidden and magical untold purpose and meaning.

Mantra for transformation

 

Relax, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Every breath helps you to sink more deeply into a quiet place inside yourself. This is the source of sacred-tranquility. Now you can gently and passionately recite this mantra:

“I will discover a new image of myself that I have been longing for so long. My awareness tells me that I am indeed apart of this universe. I experience calm and healing. I trust myself more and more confident. I gently follow the inner guidance as I feel strong and courageous.

In a moment, I find out that I carry a sense of knowingness with me into the world. Amazingly, I can envision myself having more trust to be more focused within and surrender at the same time. I begin to experience that my world is nourishing to myself and others.

I discover what I have created on the outside actually is much more beautiful and wonderful than I have ever thought because of this remarkable passion. My commitment to the universe is winsome.” Amen.

The Power of Doubt & Distrust

In life, when the truth is told, you could experience either trust, doubt, or distrust. The differences between doubt and distrust need to be explained.

Doubt and distrust are not the same. Many people get confused about them, and they think they are the same. No, they are not the same. Doubt is about uncertainty. It is unsure. It is about knowing that something is happening but not knowing exactly what is going on. Distrust means condemning the whole thing. The worse is there is no willingness to open up or learn about such things. One already made up his/her mind. There is a certainty or final decision in distrust.

Doubt could have multiple directions, such as toward positivity or negativity. One who has doubt with positivity direction and being process with positive belief systems will lead to the capability to see opportunities and grow—the possibilities to experience a deep sense of wonder and awe that scents the internal and external exploration.

Doubt with the support of the facts and the clarity of evidence will become reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt powers the journey further, with confidence and with a sense of purpose and responsibilities.

Unreasonable doubt happens when doubt being processed by the maladaptive thought processes, such as “All or Nothing Thinking,” “Overgeneralization,” and “Catastrophizing.” Through this negative processing, doubt who is now transforming into unreasonable doubt, becomes an existential distrust.

When one sees his/her life through this existential distrust lenses, life could be a curse, a never-ending suffering, or a never-ending defeat and debacle—life is experienced as a continuous catastrophe, paralyzing and totally saddening. At this point, one has no way of stepping out of his/her discursive thoughts, no way of stepping out of his/her ego fixation and grasping because one is so caught up in that particular preoccupation.

The necessary intervention is needed when one is rendering doubt with lenses of maladaptive thought processings. Right at that moment, with well-trained mindfulness practices, one can question the process of thinking, exploring the supporting and not supporting facts with rational evidence. Through this process, one needs to pause, stop, and breathe first while learning to let go of his/her preoccupation thoughts.

Furthermore, one needs to learn to take in his/her own pain and put his/her awareness into the rest of the world’s pain. Surprisingly, one will expand his/her knowledge and heart and further reinforce this noble gesture, leading him/her out from the preoccupation of negative thoughts and emotions.

What does this all mean? It is about how one can liberate his/herself from the potential of self-defeating thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

You can be successful

Life is strange and often imponderable when reflecting on what makes success and failure find their roots in simple experiences. The most typical reason people fail is that they left or give up when faced with temporary defeat. Believe it or not that probably many people are guilty of this mistake at one time or another.

Even though many people can analyze the mistake and found the lesson taught in each, respectively, they still fall into the same mistake repeatedly. What is the problem then? What is the secret that leads to success and achievement, that turns defeat into a stepping stone to opportunity?

Probably one of the answers is to explore the underlying old pattern belief systems that already tainted, such as “I am not good enough,” “I am not capable,” or “I am a failure,” etc. Then, learning to notice that achievement or successful life begins with a state of mind and a well-defined purpose. The further question becomes: How to nurture that state of mind that will attract success and achievement? Impossible? Not at all!

The amazing part is, as one thinks of his/herself as confident and successful, his/her achievement and accomplishment status will begin to grow. The astounding part is, everything he/she touches will begin to transmute itself into greater achievement and accomplishment that are gratifying and fulfilling. Furthermore, the acts of gratitude that express thankfulness become necessary and significant to nurture.

The mastery process to liberate

The seeds of mindfulness can flourish when one has devoted time tirelessly and happily to prepare his/her internal rich soil. One needs to have the confidence to mastery that through certain attitudes and mental qualities, happy life will prevail. The acts of cultivating and nurturing, along with the rhythm of life, are necessary.

In this process, one purposefully is tilling the soil of his/her own mind to shape character. In this mastery process, one perfects clarity and certainty every day. The process becomes the source of compassion and the right actions, replacing the confusion and maligned thoughts. Endurance then becomes the key here to liberate. As the old saying said, “when you learn or/and practice to love your life, life will love you all the way.”
