Choose awarefully!

Posted: December 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

Dear Friend,

I may seem like a happy-go-lucky person, but that is not the whole truth. I may seem to be always having fun, but many times it’s just a facade. I have been in pain too and I totally understand your’s, excepting I won’t talk about it unless you bring it up.

Life would be meaningless without the opposites. If you weren’t so tall, your best friend won’t be so short. If you weren’t fair, I wouldn’t be dark, right? To understand pleasure you need to feel the pain. There cannot be pleasure without the pain. That is what I have come to understand about life.

Even if you had a row of buttons in front of you and you can make things happen by pressing those buttons; get a Ferrari, fall in love, be married or happy, you would still want a button which says “surprise”. Because if everything happened exactly as you want it to happen, you will be very bored.

So it’s best that life is full of uncertainties, sometimes even unhappiness. Pain comes through non-acceptance as Buddha, Jesus and Mohammad taught us. Accept pain, in fact embrace pain. I know it’s easy to say, but there is no other way out. Most of the suffering comes from resisting. Jesus said resist not evil. Whatever you resist, persists.

As Rhonda Bryne’s “The Secret” tells us about the “law of attraction”, whatever we think most about, happens to us. If you think of pain always, you will be in pain. That doesn’t serve you.

So think about what you want, and your mind will find a way to get it for you. The mind is a homing device and it always stays on target. Just give it the right target. In fact choose your target, your desires.

Most times, we are running on auto pilot and we are not aware of a majority of our thoughts. Our subconscious mind records every single thing you see, hear, taste touch or smell and for ever. It is the operating software of your life. What you believe deep in your heart is what you get and your belief is because of your experiences right from childhood till now.

So if you don’t have the life you want, you need to look deep inside and find that faulty belief and remove it. You have to increase you awareness and one way of doing that is through meditation.

Being a muslim, I don’t know if that way is open to you but, meditation has nothing to do with any religion. It just makes you still your mind, and there are no conflicts within yourself and from that still ness whatever you think and want will come about.

I am just being your friend here, and sharing the knowledge that is helping me. According to quantum physics and the ancient Hindu Vedanta (the cream of the Vedas), as also many ancient religions, GOD is that energy which is conscious of itself, and which has precipitated itself into you, me and all the others apart from this earth, the milky way, the galaxies, the air we breath, the water we drink, the animals, plants, etc.

So GOD is not just the screenplay writer of our life, but he is also playing all the characters. He is also the props, he is also the stage and he is also the audience. It’s too complex a thought to comprehend, but if you trust in the divine – may it be jesus or Allah, you may experientially understand it.

This is not something I speak of with most of my friends, as they may not understand it, but I see you have a higher awareness and so this conversation.

Don’t ask how you will rid yourself of the pain. Ask yourself what will make you happy and walk that path. Happiness will be in the journey and not the destination.

So do each thing joyfully and whenever you think about any pain, smile, embrace it, welcome it, make it your friend, treat it as a dear memory and then think of the next joyful thing you want to do. Focus only on what you want and that thing will grow and you will attract more and more of it and before you know it, your life will be filled with laughter and love.

Loosen up my friend, don’t take anything too seriously and have fun. There is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Everywhere, there is you, just you. Even I am you, so is the guy who gave you so much pain. You can’t run away from yourself can you?

And watch the secret everyday till it is burned into your being. It will lead you to research and read many more books which will help you understand.

The Secret indeed has really helped me and I am sure it will help you too. Also read Rhonda Bryne’s THE POWER, if you haven’t already.

Though we had connected only briefly, trust me, I do care and wish you all happiness always.

Your friend,

Devraj.
