Of course! Yes! Absolutely!
Those are the answers that everyone will give if asked, are you ready to be happy?
However, the question is not as simple as it seems.
If it was, most of us would be happy by now.
So why are we not happy?
What is holding us back?
Let’s dive in and explore.
Ever wondered if the love that we feel as humans is real?
Every love is divine but the love most humans know is based on lack therefore is not true love.
That’s why a distinction between love and divine love is even possible.
So, what is divine love then?
Is it possible for us to experience divine love?
What can we do to feel it?
Has your life ever felt so dark that there was no hope for a better tomorrow?
Were you ever in a situation where you couldn’t even imagine what a better tomorrow looks like?
Well, I have.
But just as I thought things could not get any darker, one dark night I stepped outside on my porch and
found myself surrendered by sparkling stars all around me.
First I thought there was something wrong with my eyes, but then I realized what was happening.
I was visited by fireflies, and not just one or two but so many on them, close and far.
A feeling of calm and tranquility came over me as I have recognized the wonderful message of hope from within.
As I contemplated on the meaning of fireflies and the surprising encounter, a sense of hope arose from within and my world did not seem so dark anymore.
If we were 100% honest with ourselves, what can we actually predict or control?
If we believe that we can control and predict a lot in our lives, then we have every reason to be nervous, anxious and fearful.
What do we have in us that we can count on to help us do that?
What gives us the ability to be aware of all the aspects of any problem and seeking solutions in such a way that only good can come of it?
In our current awareness, we do not possess the ability but we could, if we learn to trust the universe.
The universe knows everything, it knows all aspects of any problem and it knows of solutions that only good will come out of them.
If we want to gain the recognition of the right conclusions and the guarantee that it will be accomplished we have to lean how to trust the universe.
Crippling anxiety, on and off, has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
You know, the kind that completely overpowers you so much that you think you will literally fall to pieces and die.
Surges of overwhelming panic, nausea, and stomach cramps.
Like most people with similar experiences, I would turn to doctors, therapists and medication to help with the sever symptoms.
Until one day I woke up with a very strong feeling that there might be more to the experience than meets the eye.
That’s when I started asking what is the true meaning of anxiety?
Are you ready to explore this further with me?
You might have heard the word maya before.
You might have wondered what the definition is and what significance does it have on us and our way of living.
Maya is the grand illusion of life as dictated by our senses.
Escaping maya means re-discovering our true nature – the divine Self.
To learn how to escape maya, first we need to dive a bit deeper and find out exactly what maya is and how to break free form it.
Being spiritual is the new label that a lot of people are chasing.
But in this post, I invite you to go beyond the label.
Let’s open our minds and go deep into our hearts to finally realize who we truly are.
We are spirits having a brief human experience.
And if we can find a way to accept this truth, our lives will change forever.
Therefore, the question is not whether we are spiritual or not, the question is how do I know if I am spiritual.
We all have asked this question at one point or another, why do I feel broken?
Many practical answers were given to the why we feel it and how to overcome this feeling, but I would like to propose a different approach.
What if that feeling of being broken is actually the beginning of a life changing process for you?
What if this is the first step to a spiritual awakening?
What if that feeling means that you are ready to explore different aspects of life?
Are you brave enough to explore where this road might lead you?
If you are like most people, you have asked more than once: is the ego good or bad?
Also, like most people, you have probably wondered why should we judge the ego as bad, why can’t we just embrace it and work with it.
And that exactly is the power that the ego has over you and everyone else.
The attachment to it and the unwillingness to first objectively examine it and finally to let it go.
I woke up in the middle of the night totally disoriented and not knowing where and who I was.
What was clear was the pain that I was feeling.
The urge to run for the bathroom as diarrhea was threatening to explode and the gag instinct about to make me throw up.
I was trembling and my legs were too weak to move.
My heart was pounding so fast and so hard, I was sure it was going to come out of my rib cage.
As I started crawling toward the bathroom, I was sure that I will not survive this night.
I was sure I was going to die tonight.
