Beliefs and Practices

If you already have a mental representation of how God should typically look like, then you have already shut the doors of your mind to something more amazing. This world is magnificent beyond any definition, beyond what your mind can grasp or understand. You can experience that magnificence your own way, without being influenced by learnt definitions, acquired judgements, and past experiences. You liberate yourself from being chained by speculations and judgement of others.

No wonder, your mind is a wonderful machine that records and plays out past experiences, repeatedly under different circumstances. It’s a tool that helps you in analyzing a situation. But, when this mind takes hold over you, it confines you, makes you victim of your past. On the other hand, when you begin to live an existence beyond your mind, you realize different dimensions of yourself. You set yourself free of all those thoughts and belief systems that are no more beneficial to you.

Eckhart Tolle in his book “The Power of Now”, quotes Rumi, the great poet and teacher of Sufism: “Past and future veil God from our sight; burn up both of them with fire.”

As you try to transcend the earthly thoughts you eventually make connections with a greater world, the Nature, the energies and then the Universe, your home. You might have lost your way while entertaining bewildering thoughts of your mind. But once you are at home, you experience love and joy, see abundance and richness in environment around you. You enjoy Life as an adventurous journey. You arrive at the fertile grounds, where the Creative forces or creative faculties begin to germinate.

Leaving the Self behind and marching out in great wonder helps you disassociate with your negative nature that brings you pain as well as harms you with a diseased body.

Living a better life is about being deeply aware of it at each step, be the best janitor of your body, use your mind as a tool to remind you of the best practices to keep moving and evolving.

There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn’t matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.
