20140802-161151.jpgDay 13 – Meditation and Conditioning

Thought for the day: I have the power to create new, positive beliefs about myself

Daily Quote:
Society cannot tolerate individuality, because individuality will not follow like a sheep. The sheep are always in the crowd because it feels more protected, secure. Only lions move alone — and every one of you is born a lion, but the society goes on conditioning you, programming your mind to be a sheep.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is to allow and not be afraid to be yourself.

Per Osho, past conditions began as soon as we were born. We learn from our parents, school, society, and others who we are, how we should behave, etc.

It is now time to release old, past conditioning that no longer serves you–and embrace the true you and to love yourself for who you truly are–a beautiful, spiritual being having a human experience, with your strengths and your weaknesses, your good and your bad, and your beauty and your ugly… You beautiful, work in progress You.

I wrote before about how I was in an abusive relationship in the past, when I was in my twenties. Looking back, I can’t even fathom how I ended up in that kind of painful relationship.

I have always been an Independent Sunshine with a great knowing of who I was… until boys in high school.

It is in relating with others that we learn, and change (for good or bad). Somehow, I found myself questioning who I was when I was “relating.” That was when the gaps started to appear, and how I ended up in a relationship that wasn’t good for me.

The most painful abuse this man gave to me was the constant belittling. He went from charming, supportive man to the worse kind–the kind who needed to exert power and control over someone else because he couldn’t control himself or how his life was unfolding.

It took me a very long time to release the past, and to take back my power once more.

The only way I could release his hold on me was to learn to release the past, let go of the pain I incurred, and to learn to forgive.

Part of our journey in this life to wellness and wellbeing–and to live life fully–is to release old conditioning and to release the past… To forgive the past. It’s the only way, you will be able to move on with a clearer heart. It is the only way to move on with a heart that’s open to all the great possibilities that’s waiting to be given to you, once you are ready to accept and receive them.

Fly free and untethered.

Excerpt from the course
Once you start dropping (past) conditions, you will become aware of your wings. And those wings can take you to the ultimate reality: the flight of the alone to the alone. But there you can go only as an innocent being – unconditioned, utterly dis-identified from the past. Meditation is the way to release conditioning from the past.”

20140723-115259.jpgDay 3 – Meditations on Anger

Thought for the day: Today I acknowledge any feelings of anger and allow them to harmlessly pass by

Daily Quote:
The science for transformation of life is called meditation. Through analysis, physical science reaches the atom and atomic power, but meditation reaches the soul and soul power.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is on anger, and how best to deal with it and other negative emotions.

He spoke about repression vs. expression–that people are often stuck either on one extreme or even between them.

If you hold on to anger, more likely the anger will build, and there will be time when anger erupts. Then again, what if anger is expressed in such a way that could hurt others?

In the process of what I call a very intense Spiritual and personal growth over the last two years and I am sure for many, many more years to come, I have been facing a lot of things from my past, my baggages, and many more to grow and be a better soulful, loving, and mindful person.

Although I already believed in reincarnation and soul growth, when I heard… “You are a Spiritual being having a human experience,” by Pierre Teilhard de Chardan, spoken by several people, the more I heard it, the more I came to understand and the more willing I was to face things I had avoided. And when I do face obstacles, I am beginning to automatically ask myself, “what is it I need to learn from this person/situation?”

Over the last few weeks, I have been constantly reminded to become an observer in my life. Whether I am facing deep emotions, learning lessons, or things just seem out of control, I am to step back and become an impartial observer to see why and how I am reacting, what the true issue really is, and the possible solutions and answers (from a loving standpoint) to what I am working on in order to release, heal, or forgive.

Interestingly enough, being an observer is the solution Osho presented today. It seems like I am being reminded again. 😉

From the course:
We pour our energy into anger, then only does it become vital. It has no energy of its own; it depends on our cooperation. In watching, the cooperation is broken; you are no more supporting it. It will be there, for a few moments, a few minutes, and then it will be gone. Finding no roots in you, finding you unavailable, seeing that you are far away, a watcher on the hills, it will dissipate, it will disappear. And that disappearance is beautiful. That disappearance is a great experience.”

Osho follows up with a process for a meditation that will help break the pattern of accumulation of anger over and over again. This is helpful until you have a chance to face your anger and what triggers it, and take the necessary steps to forgive and heal.

20140708-220955.jpgSometimes, in order to travel light, you need to release some baggages. Sometimes those baggages come as hopes and dreams that you put a lot of expectations on–the kinds that if they do not come to pass, it will make you go backwards.

Sometimes, you need to see your hopes and dreams set on fire–better yet, if you were the one who lit them and released them, with a clear heart and mind…

Surrender, let go, release… For the highest good of all…

I am grateful for giving myself the chance to finally mourn a loss. I have been doing my best to live life as positively as I could, but I don’t think living positively means that I should ignore something that pained me.

After a few days of trying to ignore and push this loss aside, I finally let myself go and cry.

I surrender and release this pain.

Tomorrow is a new day. When I wake up in the morning, I am going to pick myself back up.
