Motivation and will-power are two topics that contain numerous subtopics within its explanation. And from my perception I would say that both will-power and motivation can come from external stimuli and internal experiences and realizations. Motivation is not a simple black and white subject to understand. If one were to go to YouTube and search “How to become motivated”, there will be (for a majority of the videos at least) a multitude of short-length videos giving mentalized steps that one must know and understand to become motivated. I am not saying that this is wrong but it is only addressing one part of our Selfs and not the many other parts that are intermixing and fluctuating together to make up our true entire being. One having this knowledge of motivation within the mind (this is our mental being) can certainly bring a temporary burst and feeling of motivation. But, as I said earlier, motivation is not only a complex quality to understand and know but to also live, act, and be with that knowledge uninterruptedly throughout one’s life is quite difficult. I believe if this were not so than it would be easy-peezy for the majority of society to Become and get things done and sow the seeds now so it may reap its fruits later. A key fact to understand about motivation is that one cannot live and act in this quality if they do not understand and have the knowledge of will-power. Will-power is the core and basis of motivation. If one lacks or only puts forth a small portion of their will-power then there may be a high chance and correlation of that person feeling unmotivated. When a person thinks of and is trying to become motivated they will end up coming to the realization that it is the intelligent-will-power that brings the quality of motivation in its most secure way. The intelligent-will (buddhi) of the human and its ability to discern this from that is what makes us superior to our lower nature of our animal-Self. If I were to try and explain this along with the multiple parts of our being, as I had mentioned earlier, this short-essay would transform into a novel. For the time being one may read what I have expressed here and reflect upon it, and if it has given you more insight on the seemingly ever-confusing topic of motivation than may one acknowledge their step upwards and onwards within their life-path.
Hi there everyone. I wanted to take the time today to give you all a different perception on morals and ethics and give my viewpoint on what exactly is a word. The words I would like to focus on are “good” and “bad”, and “right” and “wrong”, for these are the words often associated to morals and ethics. But before we ponder on these words and modes of life we must first realize what even is a “word?” What does ‘word’ mean? How does one define Word?
Yes of course we can all go to Google right now and look it up but that still does not mean that is the objective definition. Sure it is what society will consider objective but in a higher-truth objectivity is relative to each individual and therefore it is also complementary seen as being subjective. All words of all languages are nothing but symbols. Symbols to which each individual in existence can perceive and conceive subjectively based on their unique consciousness-self which hold their particular idea-forms and beliefs. Consider going into a cave and seeing ancient symbols that are written on the walls. To us they have no meaning for our consciousness is not familiar with the message that lies “within” the symbol/word, but to others at that present time in history some people would be able to walk in and immediately know what message is trying to be conveyed. Now with that in mind, when we take the words good, bad, right, and wrong we immediately associate these words to morals and ethics. To have morals and ethics and to live with a consciousness that has attained certain subjective associations through idea-forms from the mind, brings the individuals world view to a ‘this or that’ perception. In this limited consciousness one may think others to be ‘this’ (good) or ‘that'(bad). The same applies to being ethical as well. One who makes judgements on what is ethical and/or moral about another’s behavior or actions they often do so without realizing that the are merely nothing but individual idea-forms that are created by thought from the intrinsic subjective/objective/relative mind. And this mind has been conditioned and has acquired habitual thought-forms throughout the past which in effect has led up to the current mind-state one embodies.
Now why is this important to realize? To name a few reasons and give an example of an experience I have had by not embracing a moralist and ethical mindset, one may realize the higher truth to this abnormal higher-conscious world view. Before I continue with the personal experience I would like to say that morals and ethics should not outright be disregarded for they do hold their purpose in society today, but only to an extent. It is the human species that has developed morals and ethics from their higher conscious mind that we have had since the unfoldment of the human species in this Earth-Evolution. And if we go to the past these morals and ethics were often associated with religion, obedience, and reason. Man made religions created rules and idea-forms (morals and ethics) to keep society in line with peace. They merely obeyed these man made rules and idea-forms in hopes and promises of receiving access to higher worlds. Also obedience and control was the purpose and aim of establishing subjective and relative morals and ethics. People in the past had to be very careful as to not step out of line and disobey the collective’s morals and ethics, for if one did there were major consequences that followed. Morals and ethics also helped humanity in the past think before they acted and responded immediately to their impulses and external stimuli. Thus, reason was ‘formed’ and made the individual understand potential consequences to their actions and why or why not they should respond in a certain way. Humans have known about morals and ethics for many-many years. They have played a significant role in this grand Divine Existence, and throughout time in this evolution of consciousness our human species has progressed drastically. But, as i said earlier, there comes a point where these seemingly ‘unharmful’ characteristics limits the individual from expressing their higher and true self. For there are thousands of religions and consequently that means there are thousands of idea-forms of what is good and bad, right or wrong. This is one reason as to why morals and ethics are subjective and relative depending on the individual’s consciousness. And as contradicting as it sounds, it is the individual’s stern belief in what is good and bad that makes it objective in its own unique way. If you may take the time to even consider the fact that there have been many moments in our life where we feel reluctant to act in a certain way due to the confusion of our mind’s beliefs on trying to be good and/or right. And in some moments when we are experiencing life there are times where we may feel a ‘pulling’ from above and below. This may lead one to being indecisive in the moment, for sometimes doing the “good” or “right” thing is not the best course of action in that exact happening.
To give a scenario of how morals and ethics are relative and subjective lets go to a rather ‘extreme’ example. From the outside society often looks at the soldier who goes to war and fights for our country as a hero. This hero is seen as “good” even though he may have been in the field and killed “enemies” and some innocent children, despite that he is welcomed home with cheer, praise, and accolades. While on the other hand we take another individual who robs a store and kills the owner out of fear and in reaction to the owner not giving way. Now of course from the superficial consciousness that the majority of society have they will consider this action “bad” or “wrong”. They make judgments based on their conditioned mind and their limitative beliefs. But little do they know or even stop to consider the wider scope of things and that this robbery is not of course justified but it was unfortunately the last resort this man had come to and he needed the cash to pay for food for himself and his family. And we could even imagine this scenario a step further, the man may have killed the store owner yes but at the same time he may have saved many other lives due to the him being a sex trafficker or a wicked person in general. Im not here to say the soldier is right or wrong, nor am I here to say the robber is right or wrong either. I am just pointing out what the majority of society fail to consider. These scenarios could of course be debated but it is not even about that either, this extreme comparison just goes to show how many people of society take biases and beliefs and make it the say all be all. Simple cause and effect is not understood from a higher consciousness plane, for the programming many people unconsciously partake in distorts their reality and world-view. I do not hypothetically create these relative comparisons to make it seem like I am better/superior than/to society because I do not have the limitative conditioned consciousness as they do.(In fact I do, but I concentrate on my movements and actions which allows me to observe the spontaneous life-movements that are happening all around thy being, thus allowing rejection to lower forces which in effect prohibits its manifestation.)
I’d like to tell the story now about a time I offered a ride to a “meth-head”. (I use quote on quote here because that is the inferior-label society uses for people who smoke methamphetamine) One sunny afternoon I was on my way to whole-foods and noticed this guy walking on the side of the street in the grass. To give a description of him he was average weight and height, probably around anywhere from 20-30 years old, he had a backpack on, was African-American, was fitted in a regular T-shirt and black basketball shorts, and was holding a basketball. I passed him up only to immediately stop and roll down my window to ask him if he needed a ride. (I rarely do this and when I do I act with no strings attached and do it just for the simple sake of being helpful, no means for an end rather it is an end in its self. Also I read body language and tone/attitude very well so I know intuitively if I feel it is a sketchy situation or not before I let them in.) To my surprise he was crying at the time I stopped to ask him if he needed a ride. Once he was in the car we started conversing and he was telling me about how he had just moved from a different city and met some people who he made friends with but at the same time he knew they were bad influences. He went on to tell me that he had just got out of rehab and that his family and his girlfriend did not want anything to do with him. He mentioned he was in rehab for meth and was trying to get better. As we were talking I was giving advice and would glance over and look at his eyes. I could feel the pain, confusion, and sadness within them as they gazed with glossiness ahead. I also knew he was high in that moment due to his pupils being dilated. Now if I was a moralist and judgemental towards him I would have told him to get out of my car all for the conditioned belief I held about meth and how it is bad and wrong to use that drug. As soon as he mentioned the word meth in our conversation a fear impulse would have risen and I would become afraid and would stop to let him out. But you see that is a response of someone who lives in fear, fear that is unconsciously within due to heavily conditioning by the media and programming. Even the most religious person who believes in a higher source unknowingly lives in fear rather than Trust and Faith in the Divine. We tend to forget that other people just like our self have unhealed traumas and wounds. Suffering and pain does not pick and choose, it is a part of this existence. And while some people choose to drink alcohol or play video games to cope with the darkness, others find themselves down the path of using ‘harder’ drugs. Perhaps that is also another topic on its own that I could go further into one day. But to wrap up the story we arrived at my destination which I had let him out on one end of the parking lot and went to the other end to park and enter the market. I came out within 15 minutes or so and as I was walking towards my car he approached me and said hesitantly with a vibration of shame, ” I accidentally left something in your car, I don’t want you to get in trouble.” As I was opening the passenger door I asked him “what did you leave?”; only to find his pipe laying there on the passenger seat; it must have slipped out of his shorts. I reached for it and gave it to him as he said pray for me man with the same lost-glossy eyes he had when he got in the vehicle.
I am not advocating for the abolishment of ethics and morals, for I have said briefly earlier that they in fact do have their place and has brought our species to this current moment where our societies are less barbaric. At the same time though, depending on the individual and their state and mode of being these morals and ethics can become limitative and restrictive. Despite the pre-conceived judgements made based on appearances and fragmented perceptions, when one thinks ONLY in terms of societies constructed ideas of what is good/bad or right/wrong they are not accounting for the other opposite pole. This opposite pole as I have stated is the subjective yet as objectively real as its opposite; Our unique individual perception which varies from person to person. And depending on not only the mindset of each individual, but also their emotional being, desire being, physical being and intuitive /inner being, their sincerity and understanding of their reactions and actions from their outwardly given relative morals and beliefs clash with their unexecuted inward truths. This in effect through time causes rebellious actions and reactions. As for the rebel expressing harmonious or disharmonious vibrations from their self unto others and the existence.. well, that would be a whole ‘nother article on its own.
(Words to replace good/bad and right/wrong but yet still have its subjective and objective understandings/impartations/implementations within them in accordance to each person; Constructive / Destructive and Progressive / Retrogressive )
(Post script: Written during sometime of late 2021, finished and concluded with last paragraph on 03/02/2022 [Perhaps selfishness and selflessness are other topics that can be brought up for constructive criticism but that would make this article longer than its intended length. and that runs us back around to the essence of relative subjective/objective realties of all.])
[Prescript: I wrote this around sometime late 2021 I believe..? Due to the ‘freestyle’ or ‘flow’ mode, per say, there are no paragraphs. Currently I feel a nudge more than in the past to put my thoughts into digital form. Day by day my self-expression will unfold and I will come here when I feel the spontaneous will arise from within and will transfer these conscious thoughts sporadically.]
How many times have I opened up to myself? What does it even mean to open up to thyself. Perhaps it is a static action in which I self-reflect on my entire being. The thoughts, emotions, actions, beliefs, ideas, desires, needs, wants, purpose, faith, circumstances, events, and countless other external and internal movements and forces that I am subject to within this existence. I cannot even begin to bring up a possible number of how many times I have been in a state of conscious self-reflection. I have had this self-awareness from as far back as elementary school. From being called “hard-headed” for wanting to know why I should act/think/feel in a certain way. For I was not questioning out of non-compliance but out of curiosity and reasoning. Perhaps my parent’s responses of “because I said so” or “don’t ask why just listen to me” were both ignorant yet valid in its own way. I believe they misunderstood my questioning as a sign of disobedience and looked at it in a rather negative and fragmented way. Instead of the opposite end of the pendulum which is my intrinsic nature of wander for truth and knowledge. I understand the necessity in their actions and while it is not entirely a deconstructive way of communication, it can become so if it is overused. For as a parent there are certain boundaries and limits one must place upon their child. And what may be right in one circumstance may not be so in the next circumstance. At the base and essence of relationships they are quite subjective and relative to each individual. As time went on I adapted to this idea that I should not question my parents and “do as I’m told” without questioning. For the most part I did obey, but there were times where I would backtalk and would get set in my place real quick. As I aged into the beginning of my teens I started to question my parents less and started to question myself more. Not only myself but at the time I would question myself within this confusing existence. I would ponder about the world, its meaning, its inception, its creator, its purpose, its origin, its ending. This would couple with the questions and a search for knowledge of myself and things that just didn’t make sense to me. I believe my experiences and happenings in my child hood also contributed to this need for attaining knowledge and trying to make sense of the falsehood-life that had a hold of me. My mind for most of my entire life had always been my worst enemy. If it wasn’t another person putting me down and myself allowing them to than it was I who would do it as well. Simply put, It is quite deconstructive and retrogressive to not believe in yourself. In other articles/journals I shall go more in depth with my struggles and wounds both within and without and how I reacted to them. For the reactions and attitude that is taken upon the self and the mind determines our reality and its possibilities within it greatly.
This may sound negative to most but in a higher truth sometimes the negative side of things is a better teacher than the positive. Having said that, I believe to have regrets of one’s past is to not realize the higher Truth of life. The One Manifestation of life gives us situations, catalyst, and happenings and we react how we are meant to in those present moments. So to say I wish I could go back and change this or tell myself that would effect our present self and is a sign of not unconditionally accepting the path we have already been down which has made us who we are today. That is not to say we don’t learn from our past and can share those teachings with others, but to “regret” our past self is limiting. That mentality will continue and one will say what do I regret about my 30s,40s,50s etc. Subjective idea-forms of the mind create distorted morals and ethics that are relevant to each individual. Life is an involution and evolution of consciousness throwing up forces and movements we consciously or subconsciously react to in each perceived second of the day. Regret nothing for when the time of transition comes and this body shall cast away one may ascend with Grace.
One who is not conscious is inconscious, or in the darkness. This is society’s false outer state of being. This is the ego. And in our current time of existence the majority of society puts a taboo on the darkness and oversimplifies life to fit into this box of strict all-positive existence. To convert this darkness one must adapt their attitude and concentrate to bring the conscious light/truth to their existence. Therefore understanding and comprehending the self, other-selfs, and nature-self is an educating of the being. This is where the will to educate oneself is important in ones life. Learning higher truths apart from the lower and partial truths play a significant role in our life more than people realize. One unconsciously chooses to educate themselves through the inevitable life-experience that is manifesting all of life omnipotently, this is the majority. As for the minority one may also choose to educate themselves not only through life-experience but also through inner-experience, through an aspiration of a higher knowledge. Here one develops a relationship with their selfs by curing their wounds, traumas, and hidden scars. One faces the darkness, one faces the suffering head on and acknowledges and accepts it for what it is. This can only be done through sincere action and ones true ability to put their ultimate freedom of choice in movement for the work of all-work. One cannot simply ‘be told’ to do so. One may suggest but it is up to the being to authentically and sincerely take part in the True-work. If one does not want to take the path of a yogi, the work of working on oneself to cure their wounds can be done for its own sake as well.
But this conscious true-work is not necessary for everybody. One knows intuitively whether or not it is naturally needed for thyself. If one begins the true-work out of a false calling and later decides it is not for them, there is no judgement nor belittling of that choice to do so. The yogi and the persons of the majority are equal in their being yet in their individual eternal consciousness they vary from higher and lower Light. Nonetheless, in the higher view both of life and of yoga, all life is either consciously or subconsciously a yoga. Everything and everyone is interactively becoming.
How do we remember and remanence the people we were close to? Well, I believe depending on the person who is doing the reminiscing it can vary. Of course each person is different and will either feel a feeling of overwhelming grief, sadness, or emptiness. But that becomes a choice once that void is healed. Once that is healed one can choose to take the time and think back to the memories and transform the feeling of sadness that suddenly and impulsively arose into grace, peace, and joy. This requires a concentration though, one must concentrate in the moment and feel this feeling start to arise and then consciously choose to transform it to its higher vibration of Harmony. This is relative to each individual and depending on their will-power and consciousness, will determine their adaptability to integrate this into themselves. Now normally when we take the time to stop and think about the feelings, thoughts, situations, and happenings we shared with this passed person we tend to stick only to the positive side of things. While there is nothing wrong or right about this I believe we can learn and draw valuable lessons from the shadow or “negative” side of the person who passed. For example, as I sit here and write this I think of my father and the love he showed indirectly and the knowledge he left behind without him even being aware. Just by him being himself I can now look back upon and think.. wow.. experiences that I had with him he was unconsciously showing me peace and interactive-meditation. At the time though I was not able to see it for what is was due to my fragmented lens of perception and seeing things in a separated ego-centric manner. On the other side I look at the shadow side of him and ask myself what can I learn from this. I think back to the pain and suffering he held deep within himself to which he would at times project this onto me and others. And instead of forming a low vibration of resentment and hate towards him for this behavior, I choose to understand and reminisce the lesson and teaching it leaves behind. I choose to not let what most people would call “bad” or “wrong” actions of him, deter me away from the information it leaves behind in my psyche and understand it instead of judging it. For I know He and I are not the only ones who experience these low vibrations and painful experiences. I know that my individual experience is felt and experienced by other individuals in this collective society we all share together.
This confusion, pain, and suffering we all feel is real. It is as real as the joy, bliss, and peace that we all progress and strive towards. But I know that the pain, suffering, and confusion is only a product of the separation-ignorance that comes from our egoistic selfs. For Divine Love will triumph ill-will every time. The shadow ceases to exist once the luminous light is cast upon it.
Hello everyone, today I want to ask and bring your awareness to a rather interesting realization I thought of just now. How should one know which source to draw our consciousness to when asking questions to help understand our selfs, others, and nature. To keep it rather simple for now, there are outer sources such as the unlimited information outside of us that exists in material existence that can answer our questions. For example.. things such as nature like rocks, trees, the sky, the changing of seasons, books, advice from other people, the internet. The list goes on. And on the other end, there are inner sources such as the unlimited knowledge within us that exists in our Being that can answer our questions as well. This is an interesting topic and conversation that can be had between two individuals or more. Each individual’s answer is true in its own way, but each answer does vary to lower-truths and higher-truths. All is relative, for the self who forms the answer is doing so with the consciousness-power of free-will. Now depending on the question or questions that are being asked determines what source to receive the answer from. If it is a question of understanding our selfs, other-selfs, and our nature-self than it is more logical to receive an answer drawn from the source of our inner-self. In America however, the modern society has not yet realized on a collective level that there is a difference between intellect, which comes from the mind, and knowledge which comes from our intuitive higher-truth realized self. I do not say this in a superiority complex type of way, rather I state this in a wholistic way for which I understand that the world and self is a Becoming and we are in a time where people are more focused on figuring out material sciences and equations before the collective consciousness shifts to the meta-physical side of things. This is understandable and inevitable due to the sense-mind trying to make progress through the senses and all that exists on the superficial surface-reality of things. This is why I respect religious, non-religious, and nihilist all together. Each individual has their own truth within their self, each individual has their own free-will within their self. I have no place in trying to change anyone, for one who truly wants to ascend and understand existence in its more pure and higher-truths, than they will do so with their own dynamic force that mysteriously and serendipitously comes from within.
If we can imagine for this time being while I write this and you read it. That if all is really one and the universe is absolute and in its most powerful and highest being harmonious and omniscient. Then if we want to align to that and get as close as possible to having that essence in our individuality than it is important to be very mindful of who we resent and who are what we hate. Now of course it is difficult to keep this being and concentration day by day, second by second as one endeavors in this spontaneous existence. But with practice, perseverance, and sincerity it is only inevitable that through experience and time in this Space-Time realm we can master this eventually. But for now if we want to be in harmony with the Supreme Joyful ultimate vibration of Unity and indivisibleness then it only seems logical that by feeling and thinking of lower energies and vibrations such as Hate and Resentment we in effect change our vibration to a lower state of existence. When people, places, or things test our essence of Truth and we respond and even worse hold low vibrations of hate and resentment than we are automatically giving our True Higher power within us away. We are letting a “piece” of our wholistic delicious pie be eaten by ignorant forces. The more people we hate and if we look at our past relationships with other-selfs with a negative vision such as resentfulness than we are drawing away our Life-Force/Life-Power/Life-Energy. If we then take the word I used at the beginning of this sharing, imagine, and instead replace it with Be. Be that oneness that is both embodying our individuality and our multiplicity of everyone and everything than we come into power and in alignment with the Absolute Consciousness. For everything and everyone is this, the “good” and the “bad”. The “pain and suffering” and the Joy and Peace. Everything is intermingling and co-existing among and within each and all. We have the choice to embrace this wholly or partially. No one can tell you nor I what to do or which portion to vibrate with. If all opposites and divided materialities are in essence one then it makes sense to me I want to be as close as possible to this oneness that I can possibly be. And there may be times where life hits us with roadblocks and we have no choice but to flow with this current happening.. but then there comes a time where we can choose how we react and remember these happenings. And by choosing Hate and Resentment we unconsciously keep our self in lower states of vibration because all is within all and it is disempowering to keep our consciousness in these lower states. By unconditionally accepting everything and everyone we align more to Love. For Life is Love and Love is Life…Truly. But perhaps life and love is another topic for next time..
What does sincerity mean to you? How does being sincere in ones life lead to true expression of one’s individual self and how does this in effect positively influence those around you? To me, being sincere is a way of life. Sincerity is not something that can be learned intellectually but rather a being in which one begins to progress towards. Sincerity is similar to honesty, truth, and authenticity. For all of these modes of existence are at the core of our inner-self. But through the ignorance into which we are born, as we grow older and as we form false mental formations of ourselves we temporarily separate from this true state of existence. If one were to ask you.. Are you True? Are you authentic? Most of us would answer the question with a yes. But how many persons of society that would answer with a yes actually embody that response day in day out? How many people are there who are sincere with not only themselves, but to other-selfs and nature-self? For it is one thing to trick our mind and fill up our superficial-egos with a half authentic answer of a yes without even putting in the effort every day and existing with True-Sincerity. To be clear just because one lives a life of sincerity does not mean they are better than the other. Living a life of sincerity is a choice one makes with their free-will. Living a life of Truth is a choice that requires a great deal of concentration amongst one’s being every second of the day. For this is quite difficult due to the human-nature of impulse, egoistic desires, and automatic habitual action. When one begins to ask themselves.. Am I sincere? Another question would be required to ponder on, do I TRUST? Do I trust myself? Do I trust other-selfs? Do I trust Nature-self? To live with sincerity is to live in Trust and to Trust is to live in sincerity. In the current time we are all experiencing at this moment Trust is the second most difficult thing to master besides Love. There are many reasons for this but just to name a few one could say that false media and entertainment deters our being from trust. Through unconscious psychological operations we are often led to believe half-truths that make us fear the unknown. Fearing the unknown is a common place trait in the majority of society today. But I ask you.. How can one fear something that one does not know? If we go deeper it is not fear that has entered our being but a half-truth limited idea-formation. What often leads to mistrust is trauma, wound-memories, and suffering experienced throughout our childhoods. Depending on the level of consciousness one embodies it is quite difficult to come to terms with what Trust really symbolizes. Trust is something that one must work on and it is something that requires a consciousness of perseverance and unconditional-acceptance of self, other-self, and nature-self.
Existing with sincerity has many positive effects when one is out in the material-world intermingling with other-selfs. There is a silent vibration one unconsciously picks up when a sincere person is around. People tend to gravitate towards the sincere self and often will respect them without even trying to respect them. It comes very naturally and when one is in contact with a sincere person they subconsciously trust them even if they are strangers to each other. When one is sincere within themselves their vibration spreads to other-selfs and in effect they momentarily become sincere as well. In most cases, despite the obvious other end of the spectrum, embodying this truth of sincerity in one’s self leads to many positive happenings. True sincerity within all and all within help the Universe remember its essence of Harmony.
Hello everyone, today I am uploading something different than what I normally do. This is intended more so for the spiritualistic person who is conscious of not only of the physical world but also of the metaphysical. Either way even if one is not spiritual there are some points i bring up that can help with the mental well-being of someone who does not consciously partake in the work of spirituality. I am still getting use to speaking to myself so bare with me if you may. Through time I will get the hang of it though and become more familiar with “podcast-mode” of speaking.
I am open to feedback, questions, corrections, and/or comments, please feel free to express yourself if you wish.
