1 Sure Way to Eliminate Feeling Apologetic, Regretful, Guilty or Fearful~(part 1)

Laughter lives in your eyes, enabling you to see pathways that lead to happiness.

Is it possible there is one way to free yourself from the world of emotional pain, sorrow, fear, and regret? Sure, you might be thinking, and how much does it cost, and how long will I need to take it, and for how long will it work?

Asking those kinds of questions comes from the present state of the human condition: materially-minded, limited, and trapped in a world with many issues and lots of false, expensive claims.

This state is very familiar to all of us-as a matter of fact, most of humanity is immersed in what I have recognized after much meditation and in a flash- inspired by a great teacher-that the world of sorrow is all around, but we have a choice, to live in it or not!

Once you recognize how it is being created inside of you, you have the creative option to design your escape plan and get in touch with the inner world of happiness. First step is to recognize and remove yourself from the world of sorrow, second step – have a plan that you use to redirect your attention to the rediscovery and revival of the world of happiness within you. You are not alone. Others are also involved in this practice! It is not a process, rather it is a practice-that you will enjoy. You are replacing a very old habit with a new habit. You will have experiences when you practice. Then you will be your own authority!!!

But back to the first step of recognizing how you have been immersed in the world of sorrow, like a fish immersed in an ocean. The fish may not truly appreciate the ocean until it jumps out for a moment. For the fish, the ocean is essential, but for us this ocean of sorrow is non-essential, it is a choice. Let’s jump out by clearly identifying what it is and how it has become part of me!

The world of sorrow is created every day by many minds and many hearts feeling stuck in their past words, reactions, choices, and actions. Locked into a familiar-comfortably-uncomfortable state of consciousness limited by what is known, by what is seen, heard, tasted, smelled, and felt through the domain of the five senses. Relief from this state of affairs is occasional and temporary-perhaps a good meal with friends, a beautiful sunset, a shared bottle of wine, a good night’s sleep. And then the same old, same old thoughts are back on the screen of your mind, immediately as you awaken each morning. The cravings, the longings, the compulsive behaviors, the should haves, the wish I could have, the when will it happen….the dread, the news, the deadening routine… sound familiar?

To take the first step out of this world requires courage. Not every one will take that first step. But for the willing, with that step, a 1,000 boons become available. A new path of light opens up to the seeker and the pen of writing your destiny is at your fingertips. The world of happiness stands just on the other side as one awakens from the deep, addictive sleep of the world of sorrow. Besides courage, you must also invoke determination.

Take a deep breath right now and feel inside for these two qualities. Go beyond any doubts coming from within or without. They are there…go deeper. Courage, determination!!! Invoke these qualities. Take your mind out of the mud of regrets and the fears about repeating them…take the insightful lessons of the past with you, but not the negative feelings associated with the situations. The situations are over…Done. With courage and determination you are armed to create the future. Don’t let the past define your future or define your character, either!

It is a new day. How will it be different? What do I do if the old thoughts and feelings creep back in, in a moment? First off, do not be surprised or caught off-guard, be aware, have a plan! Think of this challenge of shifting out of the old world of sorrow and invoking the divine virtue of happiness as a game While playing a game, there is usually lots of enthusiasm and effort to win. Knowing the rules of the game is essential for success. Breaking a rule will disqualify even the most skilled players. Remember one of the rules of this game is not to waste a lot of time tolerating your old thoughts and feelings…ie. tolerating sorrow. First check to see what happened that triggered the wave of the old…the wave of sorrow. Identify your “Achilles heel”, i.e. the weak points in your being, the tears in the emotional or mental makeup that have been created by traumas and dramas of your past. Catch yourself, before responding in an old, habitual way! If you didn’t respond outwardly, but you felt yourself hit by the familiar arrow (which could be one of your own recurring, destructive, negative, wasteful thoughts or someone else’s) have a backup up thought to replace it. For example, go beyond the human dilemma, by reminding yourself who you really are! I am a peaceful, loving soul.

This is one of the major rules (truths) of this game called Life…. I am more than meets the eye…I am in fact, incognito…I am an eternal point of light, of consciousness…and the essence of my nature is that of peace and love. Are you willing to play? Can you feel that this is true?

It is understandable, that you may need to sit and contemplate about this and find that sacred awareness, that wonderful self-respect about your own reality. This is the missing piece of the puzzle…this is the game changer which gives you a chance to master life. This is where to start. This is the practice. If you become aware of this fact many times throughout your day, for even a moment or two, you will begin to see and know yourself and others in a new sweet way!

Everyone is a soul, eternal, originally pure, loving, peaceful, and happy. The game is to get back to this original state of consciousness or awareness. The game is to pay attention to this “rule”; the drill is to practice this awareness frequently to refine your skill at becoming a hero or heroine of your own life. As with anything you practice, it requires repetition. This practice is like turning on a light, flipping a switch. The light is within you…you are the light! You are a soul. You are a peaceful soul. Thinking about the real you will bring your eternal consciousness into the present and create a beautiful future, more beautiful than you may be presently able to imagine!

The practice is called Raja Yoga Meditation. In these days – yoga- has become fashionable and expensive in the west. Raja Yoga is the ancient and original form of yoga of India. It is the yoga of the mind. It is freely shared. It is the highest form of seva. It is priceless. It will connect you with the deepest truth of yourself and also with the highest truths of the One.

Following the Light of the Sun~ We leave the Old World Behind and Create the New One

“Imbibe this very well and share with others. Wherever you came from, you were pure.” At present no one is pure. With that said, what are the most important questions to ask yourself in life?

Why am I doing this…Am I doing this with love…If not, why?

If we ask ourselves these questions, we are able to check our own blind spots. Best to check the self now when there is the great opportunity to respond and change rather than at the end of life when there can only be regretful reflections and the response of sorrow!!

So fall in love with your own efforts to be the highest version of yourself. You can not be alert to transforming without love…or else your movements become mechanical. Results are important to note; you must not just be treading uphill. However, some results are very subtle to grasp.

How to cultivate this landscape of love which is the essence of every soul? How will I know that I am fully worthy of God’s Love? Let me accept this great challenge to accept my own worthiness and to know and feel love from the Supreme, who truly affirms again and again ~ you are my child, I am yours, and You Are Loved. Keep yourself open to allow God to love you and allow your heart to feel it. Accepting this Divine love, I receive an enormous power that gives me the power to transform. Along with Godly Love is the importance of love and compassion for my Self.

Be in Love with the Self. For ‘observing the self’ and ‘love for the self ‘ go together. Don’t ignore that you are a unique and special soul. Rather, consider yourself to be a soul (not the body you are inhabiting). Dive deep into the qualities of the soul and the treasures that lie within, especially the original treasures of peace and love.

The more I’m connected with my Self and experience the truth that I am a soul, the less I need or take from anyone else, especially in the form of their praise and acknowledgement or their rejection or defamation. For this, I the soul, need a lot of silence to see the game of the ego and to discern what I am not, from what I truly am. It takes a lot of courage to own our own greatness. We have to stop processing and start practicing the kind of awareness which leads us to the goal of self-realization. See your journey as a wonderful and interesting game. The game of emerging your original and eternal nature of love will take you beyond the unsustainable emotionality that has come from adopting the norms and standards of a world that is sadly on a path of destruction.

Play the game of love to create win-win scenes of a new norm, a new standard that discerns what is temporary, limited, and illusory from that which is real, eternal and unlimited.

Life, itself, and the scenes of life will give you a lot of signals. For example~ any form of discomfort in the self means something needs to be put right. Discomfort shows you what is calling out to be transformed (loved) in any moment.

Ask yourself, what methods do I have to keep me connected to my Higher Self, the soul who is eternally and originally a being of peace and love and to the signals of Life?

For many of us, journaling is the practice of choice, that helps to keep us deep within myself, that provides the time to be inward facing, i.e. introverted enough to catch myself in order to keep myself within the garden of flowers , the new consciousness which is establishing a world of happiness before my emotions go astray and take me off into the forest of thorns (the old, present condition of the world, which is on a course of self-destruct) in order to make room for the new!!!

There are many creative self-triggers that can be used to keep your awareness high and your vibration loving, happy, and peaceful. For starters, pay attention not to be influenced by negative atmospheres from the outer world. For this, some use doors as triggers…any door that you go through can be a signal to stay alert to carry across that threshold a strong sense of who you are as a loving, peaceful soul, immune to the vibrations that are causing others to be immersed in forms of negativity and sorrow. Instead carry your light of awareness with you, as you walk, consciously, through each door. Remember this is a game of consciousness, stay light, play to win and help others win too. The new world we are creating is full of happy, loving souls who are currently trapped in this old world and often do not even realize it; they, too, can only thrive in the light of love!

Another method for remaining self-aware or soul-conscious, is to check and see what are the EXTRAS I’m carrying around in my head? Extras = baggage that weighs me down and takes me away from the awareness of my loving, peaceful self. Extras = reacting rather than responding, saying too much, thinking too much, being opinionated, being influenced by past experiences, associations, and memories.

Remember when you clear the past, you create the future! Again, think “game”~ this is a game of retraining the mind. Stay loving, be peaceful.

Many of us, try to create an external comfort zone and surround ourselves with only things we can manage easily. This is very limiting and actually a form of laziness. When we try to live out of our own comforts, we are living according to the games that the ego likes to play-our spiritual love is then comprised; we become careless and lose our alignment with truth.

What to do? This is a game of expanding our consciousness of true love and true peace. So we go deeper into our own spirituality, our inner sanctuary of peace. This is called living from the inside out, rather than the outside in. When I’m truly comfortable on the inside, I make peace with everything. Situations become more co-operative and true love and contentment can arise.

For this to become my stable state of consciousness, I must develop great familiarity with my inner world, my inner spirituality, my inner resources of peace and love. For this, I must turn to the Source when my own resources seem to be running low.

For this purpose, the Benevolent Source is always available. Many souls have found that through a simple and profound practice of meditation called Raja Yoga or Remembrance, they can fill up with Universal Love and Light and Peace and be a powerful influencer in their own families, workplaces, and communities. As one remembers this Light and follows it constantly, one becomes not only a transformer of the self, but a transformer of the world.
