It will also make one more aware of how they avoid their mind on a day-to-day basis and offer solutions of how to face the mind using meditation techniques that will make the mind more and more silent, and more aware of the truth. However be aware, this site will question all beliefs, values, and ideologies you have been bought up with. To live life blissfully is to follow your heart more than your mind and learn to live on your own terms rather than on others ideas, values and beliefs.
“Know yourself” – Quilon of Sparta
The name given to my physical existence is Himalay, I am a 23 year-old student of life. I as in the ego “I” ..has a degree in Psychology and has been practicing spirituality and meditation for several years now. The inner voice disappeared or lets say had been let go off over two years ago from now, during that period mind was still active and anxious about the changes that had occurred day in day out, but only about the past and what will happen next, there was “I” and there was physical attachment to this world and its ways until enlightenment occurred a year and eight months ago. No-mind was frequent more and more before enlightenment. What enlightenment is, is what the experiencer will discuss in future blogs.
Before all of this life had been of mainly suffering and in a constant phase of being hurt because of my own attitude and thoughts towards life, which included a lot of insecurities about how I look and how others would perceive me. The constant nagging of the inner voice in my head that judged everything I do further made me more indecisive and easily influenced by others, on their perception of me and what they think I should and shouldn’t do. So it became a cycle of living up to someone’s expectation by struggling to ‘improve’ and gain approval, these actions satisfied my own ego too, as I proved them wrong every time. But was it worth it really, the pain the suffering?
The identification held with my name and experiences developed this sense of “I” and going through bullying for 15 years of my life strengthened who I thought I was further, in memory. Constantly being picked on broke confidence in patterns of thought, causing disturbance in thoughts I held about myself. Being fat and being quiet mostly all the time further enhanced my belief that I am weak and lacked the courage to stand up for myself. Life hasn’t been as blissful as it is now. Realisation occurred that the main cause of my suffering was because I went against myself to meet expectations of others. Constantly looking for ways I could stand out in society and in front of people who put me down all the time, deciding to lose weight was one of the things that helped me feel a bit better, however, insecurities still existed. I persisted more and more to get an ultimate physique. Being Lacto-Vegetarian didn’t stop me, comments were thrown around, meat-eaters assumed that you cannot get anywhere being vegetarian, well I moved past the limiting beliefs. I was strong physically but that wasn’t enough for me, I questioned why I was still insecure, why couldn’t I share my views and opinions. So I decided that I had to understand the roots of my own past by myself, of where everything actually started. I had to open everything up I had suppressed and repressed. Realisation occurred finding that suffering started for me when I started naming and labelling situations in my head as a bad situation. The mind makes little things very big, and it can’t see the situation for as it is.
Furthermore, I was bought up in a religious family, to follow morning prayer and evening prayer was a routine then. I used to pray and blindly follow rules of scriptures and pray for a better life, as you do. But I got no response, and my expectations were high, so suffering was bound to be there, when I look back I can say everything that ever happened to me was because of my own doing and not of others. As negative situations became more frequent I became more unconscious and started believing there is no god. Then the search began, I started seeking for myself. I started reading, I realised that the world doesn’t have to change, I do, and that journey started when I was 18, and now here I am free of mind, free of beliefs imposed by society, living life on my own terms and following my own heart to be, to explore, to be creative and see the world as ever new, without judgements of the past constantly interfering and the feelings of bliss that happen so frequently than ever before.
I wish this journey of life and posts I publish provides you with insight, that you can be free also, free of mind, suffering and negative bondage. I hope this blog gives you the courage to be you. To listen to your heart rather than your mind, to step up, to be satisfied with life and explore the unknown. The journey of facing oneself is very painful, but the result at the end is beyond minds imagination. Welcome to my site. Enjoy the journey, I wish you the very best, be open-minded and this will work wonders. Thank you.
