Silent warrior’s notes on the weekend

The more i live the more I find ties between these two forces animating and shaping the time we are all blending in. But these ties are of unnatural type. For Attention with capital “A” here it is meant Divine force, Fragrant Purpose, Self Connection… there are many creative words to describe it because the Pure Attention is the one governing the all Universe. She / He is not identified with any purposes but Joy and Love. How beautiful would be the place we inhabit now if these force would take over! Let’s support Her!

 

Anxiety is the opposite which I am softly and speedily learning (?) in this Hong Kong Jungle context. Weekend comes and Attention graciously runs away for the ones who are not deeply attached to her. The busy cities have too much on the plate, now we call this “too much” with the name of entertainments. The list is infinite and at the core is really boring and creativity killing!

 

We start to believe that we can have fun by doing lots of things in one day or by trying different places and activities. We have this desire to be busy, we must do something, cannot just stay sitted and contemplate the view of the nature or the view of our friend’s minds sipping tea, we need to have more views from outside coming within us and spoil ourselves. I went to wash my hands at the toilette in the movie theatre yesterday and when I stepped into the bathroom it was totally wall papered with coming movie posters. I understand that something not always gentle is intentionally pushing its own way into our perception and senses wherever we go.

 

My inner world / system is working hard to keep the doors closed to these agents and imbibe itself with cool attention. This is a short note about how it feels to have a warrior mind today, a warrior of Silence. Attention & Silence, the same force.    

Attention does work better than hope

How comes we can talk and be not in the same place? How comes we feel comfortable just by listening to the voice of somebody who is not next to us but we are talking thru skype with this person? How comes we can penetrate the problems of the others by just loving them and putting a detached attention on them. Read here how it could be possible:

You are so very powerful in collective and also individually. Whatever you want you can have it. I am desireless because the Divine, the Divine power is working for Me everything.  I don’t have to desire. It knows. I don’t desire anything but you have to desire. You have to pray. You have to ask. And the wider you become, your prayers will be wider, for a wider world, wider vision, not limited to your children, not limited to your family, not limited to one place but unlimited areas…

So we become very conscious and alert about whatever is happening in the world, to put our attention there. We try to find out what’s wrong with this and what’s wrong with that. You are not just worried about a small little ashram but we are worried about the whole world, to find out what’s wrong, what can we do, what can we desire, because if we have the power and if we can operate the Divine power then why not we work it out ourselves? We can.

So your attention can go to any place. It can go to Nicaragua, it can go to Israel, it can go to Saddam Hussein, to any place that you want to work it out. It moves. It’s mobile. It’s universal. Just start expanding your heart, your mind and your attention.
