on 'When Everything Changes, Change Everything'
“I think that change is going to be the social and spiritual challenge of the 21st century;
Change indicates that something old is not working anymore, is out of harmony with your life so something new has to come.
There’s no such thing as change for the worse. All change is for the better. The process of evolution is a process of change itself.
Change is not a disruption, but an eruption.
Is not a break in the flow but it is the flow. Is not a shift in the direction, it is the direction in which all life moves.The key is to hold the idea of change as a gift instead of a disaster.
All life is in motion. Even a rock at the atom level is. Everything is in motion. Change and life is the same thing. The difficulty is to understand why things are changing. After that , you will be able not only to manage , but to create the changes of your choice.
Is there a way that I can direct at least a part of the changes in my life?
Yes, by understanding the mechanics of the mind:
The reality is the result of the experience that we are having day to day. And the experience that we have is the result of the emotion that we are moving through. The emotion that we are moving through is the result of the thoughts that we are holding about any particular event. And the thoughts that we hold emerge from the truth that we have formed around that event. And the truth emerges from the data that we have stored in our prior memory bank about an event. This truth can be either the imagined truth, the apparent truth or the actual truth. This means you will have either a distorted reality,(that most of us are living in), or simply the observed reality, (objective),or the ultimate reality –in which masters live in.
We tend to overlay prior data stored in our mind,on the present moment (old reality, past experiences), thus creating an imagined truth.
PERSPECTIVE CREATES PERCEPTION
PERCEPTION CREATES OUR BELIEF
OUR BELIEF CREATES OUR BEHAVIOUR
OUR BEHAVIOUR CREATES OUR EXPERIENCE
OUR EXPERIENCE CREATES OUR REALITY –
YOUR LAST REALITY CREATES YOUR NEXT PERSPECTIVE, AND SO ON.
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE AND YOU’LL CHANGE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING THE EXPERIENCE OF CHANGE ITSELF.
The soul on the other hand has a different perspective, and has access to data that the mind can't even begin to grasp. The truth of the soul is bigger and larger than that of the mind. You need to access the wisdom of the soul.
To listen to the voice of your soul, you can do meditation.
The stopping meditation:
Stop whatever you are doing for 10 seconds. And breathe.
Just be with the silence. Six times a day for 10 seconds. Access the wisdom of the soul. it is in the silence.
It has to be a deliberate, conscious intent. It has to be habitual.
If you don't go within, you go without. Learn to use the wisdom of your soul. you are a 3 fold being. To have a broader perspective on life, you need to use the soul as well, not just your body and your mind."
