Growth

You are in a cocoon.

The growth of your soul is through the struggle.
Your evolution is through the fight.

The deep slumber is not comforting all, even though it may appear to be. Your soul seeks to fly and go all out. It seeks the highest expression of its grandeur. It is restless to go out and be.

But it must wait.

The little shoot must wait, the root has to go deep first. The shoot wants to express itself as blooming flowers with enchanting fragrance.

But it must wait.

You are in a cocoon.
Fear not. Lose not hope.

The aim of your soul is too great, and so is your suffering.
Yet now you must demonstrate a great patience.
Let your wings develop, allow your limbs to grow ever strong.

Embrace it.
Embrace the struggle in good faith.
It’s all working out in your own favor.

You are not deserted out in the wild.
You are just being taught to find your own way!

The great powers within you are being extracted.
Your evolution is allowed to take effect.

There is no glory without a struggle.
There is no victory without a fight.
Embrace it with no fear, embrace it right.

You are a god waiting to be.
You just don’t know it yet.

You are in a cocoon.

The growth of your soul is through the struggle.
Your evolution is through the fight.

The deep slumber is not comforting all, even though it may appear to be. Your soul seeks to fly and go all out. It seeks the highest expression of its grandeur. It is restless to go out and be.

But it must wait.

I know, it has been hard, and it’s getting worse by the day.
But without the mother virtue, it’s not worth it either.
Let patience build you inside out and bring out the best in you.
I know, it hurts, that you have been broken.
But it’s not over yet.

If the roots go deep, let it!

What we sow

Fear not, for fear is an illusion,
It will rob you of your good days.
A dawn for every dusk will come,
No matter what the cynic says.

The fear in you is real, so real,
You wouldn’t believe otherwise,
Yet, trust if you will for a while
in self, above it you will rise.

The more you struggle it pulls,
And the more you fight it wins,
But once you let go in mind of fear,
Swim you shall, in wide grins.

There! you see, or do you not?
The illusion that blinds you so,
The fear is of your own making,
Thus is the labor from your sow.

You have the power

Often it is a situation of the future that worries us so much now that we lose our present. It robs us of our power to create, and to deal with the appearances of worrisome conditions. What we fail to understand is that it is only an appearance, it is not real yet, but we act like it is. We take it to be the only possible outcome even though it may not be.

We have such a tough time dealing with the appearances that we lose our minds on trifling matters and continue overthinking on every small detail.

Why do we feel so powerless?
Why do we worry about every thing?
Why is there so much fear and uncertainty?

It is because we have lost faith. Not faith in gods or deities. But faith in ourselves. We take ourselves to be insignificant and powerless, while in truth each one of us is a fountain of strength and power, innate with the creative ability. We can change our own lives. Command our own circumstances. Live our lives by choice and not by accident.

But we don’t. Because we have no faith.
We cannot convince ourselves that we are able to do any of that.

Yet, there are people living, happy, joyful lives. Living the life of their dreams. They are not intimidated by the future, or the challenges in the present. Every day is like a blessing to them as they consciously design the lives they wish to live.

So now, even you should at least be aware that you are not alone. That you are taken care of. That this Universe is abundant and giving. That all your troubles are mere appearances and nothing else. That you can choose an outcome, and manifest it in your reality. That you are entitled to as many miracles as you need to turn your life around. That you are blessed and that you have the divine power of creation.

Would you still choose to worry and weep on the little things?

Broaden your sight, dream bigger dreams, & know that all will be taken care of.
Choose your own outcome, with perfect faith, beyond all appearances.

You have the power.

No more suffering

Why do you suffer?
Because you choose to.

The kind of life you want to live, someone out there is living it.
It is there for you as well, if only you would believe it possible.

This suffering is an illusion.
If you choose to, you can walk out of it any time.
The sunshine, the fresh air, the tweeting birds are out there at all times.
You need to open your windows and let the world come in.

I know it has been hard.
I know the drudgery has been overwhelming.
But you can change all of that.
Often it doesn’t take much, just one change of habit is enough.

If I were to recommend a book on that, it would be The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. It speaks of how small habits can make a great change over time.

The suffering we face is mostly because our life has gone wildly out of balance. We spend too much time confused, frustrated, feeling not getting anywhere, and lost. We were taught so many things but never how to live our lives.

If you find yourself in unsatisfactory conditions, let me remind you that you have the power to change that. By first changing what is inside you. For what you see in the world outside only manifests from what is in the world inside. The external circumstances are all your creations. You cannot walk away from it, you must embrace it, learn from it, and recreate your life to your own choosing.

The chaos in your inside world, in your consciousness, is caused by the imbalance in your life – when you don’t eat right, don’t sleep right, don’t move about too much, don’t exercise; or when spend your time in low states just sitting on the couch speculating the dangers of your future, or drowned in the consumption of addictive stuff be it social media, or something other.

Snap out of it!

Easy for me to say, right?
I know how it feels when you are deep in your trenches.
You don’t feel like doing anything. You don’t even want to improve.
The pain and suffering is far too much to even notice hope.

But if you don’t make a conscious decision, like enough is enough, you will eventually destroy yourself. It is going to be hard, I agree. But you have the power to make new choices and build better circumstances for yourself. You can change EVERYTHING about you and your circumstances, nothing ever need be the same. It is up to you to decide.

If not anything else, I would suggest you read this article from James Altucher:
Luckiest Guy on the Planet

Don’t give in.
Things will change.
Good things will happen.
Open the windows, let the world come in.

No more suffering.

You can rise up from anything.
You can completely recreate yourself.
Nothing is permanent.
You’re not stuck. You have choices.
You can think new thoughts.
You can learn something new.
You can create new habits.
All that matters is that you decide today and never look back.

Self-talk

Change your self-talk to change your life.

Regardless of what others may think or say about you, you and you alone have the power to accept their judgement. People are not discouraged by criticism, condemnation, or personal attacks, they are discouraged by their own acceptance of these things.

Let no man tell you what you can or can’t do. Let no man tell you where your limits lie. Don’t even tell yourself where your limits lie, because you don’t really know.

You are going to be with yourself more than anyone else. It’s not just a play of words, just think about it. There will be no one with you all the time but you. Therefore, you cannot always rely upon external validation and acceptance of you. You must do it yourself. That is where all the immutable confidence comes from. That is where all the deep-rooted trust comes from. That is where you begin to trust yourself through all things big and small. That is where you begin to grow without depending on external validation.

Change how you speak to yourself.
Change your self-talk to change your life.

It is easy to think you are not worth it, easy to beat yourself down, it is easy to quit, easy to stay within the boundaries of your beliefs. But it takes a lot more to challenge your ideas and your paradigms. It takes a lot more to challenge your conditioning and limited beliefs. What seems possible for the other will not be possible for you, only because your beliefs wouldn’t allow you to see how. You will find excuses, a thousand whys you couldn’t.

But thankfully, you can change all of that. You can change how you look, you can change how you feel, you can change your personality, you change your circumstances, and whatever you may find unpleasant in your current reality – just by changing your self-talk.

Praise the good, affirm the possibilities into your reality.
You can change everything about your life.
You must only make the effort.

It is all possible.

Waste no more time

Time. It is your most precious resource, and how you squander it all away. You are going to be dead in a hundred years, and you’ll be forgotten too, sooner or later. Are you aware of this fact? Our time here on earth is limited. Every day we get a little closer to the end of our time here on earth.

So my question to you is, are you living your life enough?

Stop playing small, stop judging and complaining. If you are alive and breathing you are here for a purpose. Make use of your life and live your bliss. I believe every one of us here on earth comes with a gift. Every one of us is endowed with an ability or two which very few possess. It’s time you slowed down a bit in your life and found your gift. It will be the path to your freedom and your highest joy in love! You will become the medium for the Universe to express itself. And all life will be yours.

Our soul seeks fulfillment through a greater expression of itself. And even though all your material goals and wants are indirectly helping you greatly express the prowess of your soul – what our soul truly seeks is subtler and greater than just fast cars, and big mansions.

It is the act of creation that fills the soul.
And it is love that initiates all creation, the seed for everything.

Waste no more time.
Take time to find your gift.
The things that truly make you come alive.
Then do your thing and share it with the world.

Life is too short to be playing small.
If no one ever told you before, here I am telling you that you are piece of magnificence, that you are perfect, and that you being alive, is a miracle in itself. We just take all of this for granted but its a great thing to be alive.

Make use of your life.
Take the risks, and do what you must.
Dare to follow the path life calls you to walk upon.
If you are alive and breathing you are here for a purpose.

Waste no more time.
Find out what truly makes you come alive.

Live your life, and stop squandering away your time chasing empty pursuits, worrying. complaining and living in misery! Find your gift, it will be the path to your freedom and your highest joy in love!

Go forth!
Life is waiting for you.

The Present Moment

A major part of getting to where you want to go is being present. Yes, being here and now, and enjoying this moment to the full. If you are time-travelling to the past or to the future, you are kind of wasting your present. Instead, use this present moment to create anew.

Whatever feelings you are looking for, you can have them right now. Don’t let appearances cloud your judgement. Behind all your dreams, goals, and needs, there is this wanting to feel secure, or happy, joyful, abundant, loved, respected.

You think when you get to the end of a goal, you will then feel the feelings of happiness, joy, and accomplishment, and you actually will. But it won’t last for long and soon you will find yourself putting another goal before you and then you start all over again chasing greater happiness and higher accomplishment or love or whatever it is you are looking for.

There is one very fundamental lesson that I have learnt and that is – the external circumstances hardly bring lasting happiness, joy, or the feeling of love, security, and abundance. It is only from the inside that one may bring out these emotions and see it reflected in the world outside.

You could have millions of dollars, but if you are always worried about losing it all, do you really feel abundant? The feelings come first and the external realities can only support and amplify it.

If you feel doubtful and insecure about yourself now, you will only attract more circumstances that will amplify your doubt and insecurity. What is needed then first, is a conscious and deliberate change in thought and feeling. And then you shall attract the corresponding circumstances and people that match your vibe and outlook on life.

And that is why this present moment is so important. Because you can deliberately choose to think and feel what you want. It is under your power.

So use this knowledge to your advantage, and fill in as much joy, love, and ecstatic bliss as you can in your present moment. And guess what you are going to attract?
