Healing and Transformation

hafizMany go through times of feeling lost and confused, or just have those off days when they seem to face more inner doubts than normal. You may sometimes even wonder, “what is my purpose?” It’s normal to ask these sort of questions.

Should you be ambitious and aim to reach some sort of high spiritual state of enlightenment or relax and enjoy life by accepting your foibles, while acknowledging that there’s always your next lifetime to come to master all these lessons! Enjoy the moment!

The journey of life is mysterious and filled with moments of crystal-clear clarity and joy, amidst the confusion and suffering.

Throughout your life, you may find yourself asking “How do I cultivate wisdom, and start listening to my inner voice, in the midst of a thousand voices?” Or, “How do I become more enlightened,” “How do I find myself if lost,” How do I find inner peace when suffering?”

It’s natural to have some cravings and addictions to overcome and it’s natural to strive to be more. That’s what our life is about — constantly learning more about ourselves and our role in life, bringing more light to shine on the darkness and knowing that consciousness is always expanding.

In Buddhism, attachment to Vedana (a Sanskrit term referring to sensations or feelings that occur when our internal sense organs come into contact with external sense objects and the associated consciousness) leads to suffering. On the other side, concentrated awareness of Vedana also leads to enlightenment and the end of suffering.

Vedana is crucial to your growth and expansion, wherever you are on the scale or pathway to enlightenment.

All of us are seeking pleasure and an end to pain suffering, and ultimately, “wholeness”. Yet, we get caught up in life’s dramas by judging others and ourselves and crave empty substitutes for living our truth authentically. It is not in denying ourselves that we find a pathway to inner peace; it is in the very experiencing of ourselves that we find authenticity and wholeness. This is the path.

Seeing beyond the veils of illusion reveals our true selves, what is inside—our authentic self. This is always present and always wholly authentically real — I like to call it your “essence.”

The mirror that life presents to us never lies. In our frenetic 21st century lives, it is more important than ever to change what is not working from the inside out—and not look for empty feel-good substitutes for doing the work. When we get out of the way of our ego, we can learn to truly experience love from the inside out as an intrinsic part of all creation—as an intrinsic part of our nature.

The heart is a vessel for love.

When you look within and live from the heart while expecting miracles—watch what unfolds. As Einstein said:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Heart intelligence goes beyond our traditional comprehension—reopening our childhood imagination. It softens our way of being and brings kindness and compassion to our way of life.

The heart’s vibration extends far beyond our physical bodies. It’s vibration (electro-magnetic field) goes beyond our personal boundaries into the ethers of space; we can feel the energy around us when we attune this sense—often known as the sixth sense.

There is always something for you to learn and heal from—and always more to unfold. Yet, you need to forget your ego…just be still. In silence is found true healing.

Life becomes resistant when you resist what stares you in the face. See the light beyond the bars of separation. All it takes to break down the bars, is an open heart and courage to face the truth.

When we experience love from the inside out as an intrinsic part of all creation, we find our calling – experiencing ourselves as love. This is living our lives authentically. This is living our bliss.
