Infinite possibilities

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. -Eckhart Tolle

There is a strange force within our nature that keeps pulling us towards either past or future. It doesn’t allow us to stay in the present, in the moment. Nowadays most of us are living our lives in hopes that something better is going to happen in the future. In that sense, it means that we are living for the future, in the future. That’s not the way to live, never was and never will be. You can dream about the future, but cannot live there. You can only live in the present moment, that’s the only thing you actually have.

We all keep complaining about our lives, we blame it on circumstances, people, fate, and money. We do it because we are looking for a change in future, but not in present. In fact every moment offers us infinite possibilities! You are laughing on this now, right? Seeing around, you may think it’s impossible, but if you see within, it’s not only possible, but it’s already existing!

Let us consider this by an example. Imagine that there are hundred doors and for each door there is one key. There is only a single slot provided for all those keys where you can put one key at a time. For every key you put in it, one of the door unlocks. Now you have those hundred keys in your hand. But you focus your eyes and mind on only one of the door (maybe anything from career options, desires, relationships, etc) and keep changing keys in that slot (brain) hoping that one particular door (future) will unlock. But you don’t notice that with every key (moment) you put in that slot, one of the other doors keeps opening. But you are unaware of it. You are ignorant of the process. You consider yourself as limited, and your possibilities as limited. If you are in the moment, you are more aware, more observing! You can observe every door, every possibility.

We cannot live in the future. You cannot wear sweater now just because it will be winter after few months. Future is uncertain. You only have is this moment. You cannot deny the moment. If you have become a triangle, it’s difficult to become a circle from this state. You have to let go of what you have falsely assumed yourself as, here as triangle, and turn back into a point (•) again. From then you can start becoming a circle. That’s what we really call as transforming. Letting go is an art that only few can master.

Don’t expect anything from future. It also doesn’t know where it is going.
Don’t expect anything from the past, it cannot take you anywhere as it’s gone.
Don’t expect from the present as it is already giving you infinite possibilities!

Pose or Purpose? 

Pose is showing others what we pretend to be & what they want us to become.
Purpose is showing your own self what you are & what you want to become.

Have you ever felt as if you are living life the way others want you to be or the way others tell is the only way to live life. We all feel this way sometime or the other. This is a feeling sent by universe to change your direction. But we feel this as a common thing and ignore it. Once this message dissolves in our brain, again we involve ourselves in worldly matters.

How artificial our thoughts have become in this world. Only for the sake of surviving, we have embraced sensual pleasures, possessions, fake identity, false security and masked intentions. We have given up our purpose of living. In the name of technology our own spiritual powers have been stolen. We have become servants of technology. Our desires tripled and their bank balances too. Everyone is out there to show others how happy and rich they are, when in fact they are so poor that they want others’ attention to feel rich. Whenever I see people here spending thousands of rupees for the name sake, but not even a rupee for human sake, I feel as if I am living in hell. It’s about time to make this place a heaven. And it starts with our brain.

Our purpose is to seek the ultimate truth and seek asylum of the very nature. There are many paths through which we can reach the truth, but there is only one ultimate truth. But instead, what we do is mask lie with the name of truth (pose) and accept it as to be the truth. We destroy our own house i.e., our nature and build artificial houses in our brain to justify it. The psychology of humans is at the cross roads now. Even though we have kept our foot on the road of lie, the source of life i.e., truth is still sending us messages through nature. We compare that unique message with mundane world and ignore that message. It’s time to notice that message. Once our thoughts in brain becomes pure, everything starts becoming pure.

There is still time. Pose is still a pose and before that pose becomes the only purpose, we have to escape from this artificial prison we have created in our brain. Come out. Happiness and bliss have always been here. They were just hiding behind the our selfish intents and human-less actions. Isn’t the feeling of being alive is the ultimate rather than desiring for worldly pleasures. Once think upon it.

Hold the hand of faith and seek for ultimate truth. This journey is full of eternal bliss and happiness. It is up to you, Pose or Purpose? Thanks for reading. Have a great sunday.
