What is Paradise, that various religions mention about?

Garden-of-Eden-What-Really-HappenedWhat is Paradise?

It surely is not a place outside oneself? Cause outside oneself is only the physical manifestation of the universe; like plants, animals, mountains, planets, stars, galaxies, black holes, etc. ONLY MATERIAL!
The spiritual world, where the paradise is, is not in the material world. Then where it is? it’s not outside? No, because outside is merely a very very small portion of that ONE God’s creation. Most of his creation is within oneself. Within you , with in me, with me each of us. One has to find GOD (or Allah, or Paramathma, what ever name or language you call him/her) by oneself. Each has to strive and learn to find the paradise with in each of us.

Master’s teaching’s are to be followed, not the Master’s follower’s teachings. One can be of any or no religion, but living life following those teachings, is what is called for. The same teachings were taught by Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha, Krishna, etc; only the settings were different, because of cultural, geographical and language differences.
What an Englishman calls Water, an Indian calls it Paani. Which does not mean that one is actual water and the other one is fake water. Water is the same, and both waters, what ever name you call it by, will quench everyone’s thirst the same exact way. No discrimination!

Each of us is actually NOT separate. Only we don’t see it because we are localized in our experiences and personifications. It’s like one head having eyes all around and every where. How then can one eye say to the other that what it sees is the only truth, and what the other eyes see is not? Each eye gets to see what is in front of it. What one eye see is true to it, and what the other eye sees is true to it. Which does not mean what the other eyes see are not the truth. They are, only they are localized and personal truth’s. Not truth in it’s entirety.
God and Universe is ONE manifestation, flowing from inside to outside, and manifesting, from spirit, astral, etc worlds to our physical world. Physical world being one of the grossest form of manifestation, as far as vibrations go.

Imagine a very extremely large hot air balloon. The physical universe is like that small basket at the bottom of the balloon where people ride in. The rest of the balloon is like the rest of the universe.

More Than Words

Does it matter what words you conscuiously choose to express an idea or thought?

Let’s first ask ourselves this question. What is reality? According to wikipedia, “Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or may be thought to be.” That we know is an old and obsolete definition. Esoterically, we know that reality is only in our mind and the impressions. Reality is only thoughts, words and forms.

Esoteric gnosis teaches us that our words have power over our thoughts and actions. They also impact and influence people we speak/communicate to. Since thoughts determine actions, there’s a powerful connection between the words we use and the results we get.
Words create impressions, images and expectations. They build psychological connections. They influence how we think. Different words evoke different feelings.  Well chosen ones can motivate, offer hope, create vision, impact thinking and alter results. Words and statements work both ways, to build or destroy. It is the way we use them that determines whether they are going to bring good or harmful results.

So, Does it really matter what words you conscuiously choose to express an idea or thought?

Majority of the population thinks in words, in a language that they are most comfortable and familiar with. That makes words very powerful. Whether within our own thoughts, spoken or written, words have the power to transform the world we live in. Hypnotherapists are told not to use negatives in their hypnotic suggestions. They are told, “the subconscious mind doesn’t “hear” negatives”. The subconscious mind does not hear the negative and therefore any negative suggestion will be heard in the positive. The Subconscious mind accepts what is put into it WITHOUT QUESTION because it is, unlike the conscious mind, non-analytical, non-critical, non-judgmental, non-thinking mind.

What is the point of all this?

The point is to provoke your thought into picking right set of words to experss any idea or communication. Positve sentences tell us what something is, should be, has or does. Negative sentence tells us what something is not, should not be, has not been or does not do.

Example:
Negative sentences:
1. I hate bananas
2. No more negative news
3. I will fail

Same communication can be turned around into postive sentence
1. I don’t like bananas
2. Positive news only
3. I will not succeed

An experiment for you to do:
Try saying (out loud) a sentence/message. First, say it as a negative sentence a few times. Feel the vibe of the sentence and be aware of the feeling it creates with in you. Next, say the same as a positive sentence a few times. Feel the vibe of the sentence and be aware of the feeling it creates with in you. Do you notice the difference? The feel and the vibe of these sentences are very different. The positive sentence creates a good feel in you, even if the message has negative intent. The negative sentence creates a heavy feeling and you almost cringe, even if the message has positive intent.

So choose your words wisely and very carefully. Turn your communication around. Use positive words only. All the time, every time.

Mind Control thru Mantra Yoga

There are ‘n’ number of things we do in our daily life that is operated by our subconscious. Driving the car, going to bathroom, taking shower, doing the laundry, making photo copies, making coffee, etc., are a few examples of actions predominantly performed by our subconscious mind. The list of actions is different for each one of us depending upon our life style, our profession, our disposition and our orientation.

For some of us it is during these times when the physical action being performed is predominantly controlled by the subconscious, is when the conscious mind starts wandering in thoughts. It is during these times that we often find ourselves thinking about something or someone. Our conscious mind is weaving us thoughts. Positive or negative thoughts. Thoughts in the form of feelings, thoughts in the form of vision or thoughts in the form of sound.

Pick a chant. A chant that you, physically, mentally & spiritually are able to articulate and chant comfortably. The chant could be a long prayer or a primordial word. A chant that you can connect with and center yourself.

Anytime you find yourself involved in activities that are primarily controlled by the the subconscious mind, CHANT! Chant Away. You could chant external or internal. You could chant in the form of talking or in the form of hearing. Identify the actions in your daily life that could be utilized to Chant your mantra and bring your mind in your control. Do this and watch your life unfold and transform.

Peace
