Let’s treat ourself with some amazing and deep deep silence! Time is now! Instead of any other common overrated treatment aka a dessert?,  a good book?, a holiday? Because any best treatment would be pretty miserable compared to real silence sourced straight from within. Here is a book i m treating myself with just today  surrounded by the sounds of various birds and cicadas, sipping a fruity smoothy and… longing for insights. Those kind of insights which a book like this just deliver! And without considering that i m writing this post exactly from one of the most un-silent places on earth that is actually host to the largest crowd with the noisiest lifestyle.

Here now with Five great extracts from the book

1. In bright light our pupils contract to protect our eyes, in loud environments our ears slowly produce wax to protect our sensitive drums from damage. So why are we surprised when our mind does the same thing when faced with information overload on many levels?

2. We can keep things simple or delve into our personality and behavior in ways that will astonish and delight. We can literally improve ourselves through the power of introspection and spiritual contemplation, and at a pace that suits our personal temperament.

3. But overall this new sense of self-improvement helps us realize that we still have the ability to enjoy life, with all its different modes, shades, challenges and peculiarities.

4. We dont waste our thinking, fritter it away, but instead we cherish it and listen to the still voice that can guide us to where we need to be.

5. The more we relax the easier it gets.

Starting point.

Diving is like a meditation. Getting to become one with aquatic nature and watching the colors and the wonders of a deep sea abyssin landscape. Total silence surrounding the human nature. Becoming one with this present silence.

Painting is also like a meditation. Expressing the beauty thru movements of the hand, putting it into colors, lines, shapes.  Without thinking, drawing into the silence.

Tai-chi is like a meditation. Feeling the energy rising up and refreshing the senses and everything else into the being. Each movement is in harmony with inner breathing and spirituality of self.

Photoshooting is just like meditation too. The focus of the nerves, the observation of the present moment. In relax, in dynamism, in fun.

Surfing the net is perfect meditation. Like surfing the waves of something bigger and empty. The vibrations of the entire universe surrounding the digital personal experience.    

Whole life IS meditation. Or at least the starting point of… it. It…?!

The daily connection

The most beautiful thing is when you are tired or stressed or bored or a mix of the above or/and something else different (whatever you want to feel you are free to feel it anyway). It`s when the day was plane and uninteresting, and nothing special happened or you got a great new and you are jumping with joy. You could not reach the heart of that person as you have wished, you have tried many times and things do not change, you have meditated too. Days look flat normal or they look quite gorgeous to yourself.  The most beautiful thing is that despite the flatness or the gorgeousness, you know the truth and its aspects. It goes beyond and ahead of all the above descriptions, and justifications. Perhaps it s not a feeling but it s something that you know and doesnt move and you dont lose it even when you feel what you feel.  I think this is when you are connected to the truth.

Egofish

I presume you all know where ego is located in the brain. In case you have no idea about brain deepest anatomy and functions you are still on time for that. It is very easy to understand & useful to know. Here is a species of fish with a big ego which made me laugh a lot. Besids the fact that it seem to have been tatooed Chinese characters with black ink on the body too!

15 reasons why it s good to know own Mr Ego.

  1. because it gives a tremendous opportunity to laugh about your self and have lots of fun with your personal nuts!
  2. because it helps you understanding the real purpose behind your actions, dreams, goals…
  3. because it clarifies for you the purposes of other people ideas in your circle or groups regarding activities, projects ecc. you are involved.
  4. because it gives you the last chance to face your ultimate stupidity.
  5. because it gives you the last chance to understand the meaning of your feelings.
  6. because it gives you the golden chance to distnguish between ego and self confidence, which are two very different aspects of personality.
  7. because it helps to prevent general painful troubles with others.
  8. because it will give you a vision on a large scale of  how things move in the community you belong to.
  9. because it will help you to connect with other people who know their Mr Ego too (they are special and sometimes rare)
  10. because it feels like an amazing satisfiction with no other comparison to silent the ego thoughts.
  11. because an egoless life is much smoother and neater than an egoful life.
  12. because it gives you clarity and dynamism of thinking.
  13. because it makes you different and precious in every place you go.
  14. because it will build like a shield of protection around your personality and space of action.
  15. because it will move your attention on new things, very smart.

Just like a heart beat

How is your heart beat? Do you check on it? Not medically but for real. i found out that my heart beat is regular and especially during two moments of the day/week it goes towards the extreme without even touching them.  During sitting time of meditation it slows down a lot, during a dance performance it does increase.

Traditional Chinese doctors suggest not to take to any hyper dynamic activity after 50 years of age. When we get old we should keep our heart beat on the same regular tune as much as possible. Nowaday there is a big trend to go jogging, running ~ there are big financial companies here in town which promote marathons to push up the heart beat of their employees and throw them in stressful conditions with the pretest of charity events or enhancing team spirit. But a completely conscious person will not listen to them and have great care of his heart beat.

The feeling of the “nectar”

I was just chatting with santasamudra who also can feel the divine nectar in the brain. These days an eclypse is coming out, today to be precise, and it is going to be visible about 10% somewhere in Europe and 100% in Cina and Russia. many fanatics mixed up with researchers, you may say and also seekers, went up to Siberia with all the most sophisticated equipment to record the event.

What happen at each human being level, when Eclypse is showing up, is something to be experienced and annoted, like i am doing now for example. When you drive your attention to the center of your being there is something subtly imperceptible which tries to push you out of your nectarious way. You keep going on your way driving yourself towards the center and it happens of course. It is not that you are working for nothing from within. But the most creative thing is that the spirit guides you and all of a sudden the nectar, the divine Nectar, does start showering from inside. It is a feeling. it is a real happening. And i am sorry to have at my disposal insufficient words to explain this fact. So my dear ones enjoy yourself.
