Vipassana - The Art of Letting Go....

Every person has their own fears. I had stage fright. I lived with it for many years. Earlier it was a guest, then it became a part of me. I thought the only way to overcome it was by facing it & I participated in some events where I had to go on stage. I don't think I'm through with it yet. But It doesn't visit me much nowadays.

Fear is the greatest enemy of the self. It's a demon built by our own selves who engulfs us in it's tangles if we let it be stronger. Are you more important or are your fears. Let it not overpower you. Overpower it. Fight it. Win it. Again and again and again.

Let me share with you a secret:
We all are here to comes out of the life cycle and have Nirvana just like Buddha. We like something,we desire it. We can feel it on & in our body in the kind of pleasant sensations. We desire it so much, that it turns into a craving, then greed & we try to cling to it.

We hate something, we suffer it. We hate it so much, that it turns into a suffering, then repulsion & we try to go away from it. Again, we feel a sensation but we don't like this sensation. We try to throw it away from our mind, our body, our soul.

Many of the fears arises from these 2 opposite factors: Desire & suffering. We don't only suffer in the present but in the future too. We carry it in our forthcoming lifetimes. Thus, the cycle of birth and death. It's your own decision which can help you come out of it.

Just do this: When you see a pleasant or a repulsive sensation in your body,don't cling or repel from it. Just observe it and let it go. Don't react.

I know this may sound crazy to you. But this is the teaching of Buddha and he found "Enlightenment" in this very same manner. This is the art of letting go...Vipassana.

Sometimes it's so hard to do anything. It seems your mind goes in a coma and you don't know who you really are. What to do? Where to go? You are nowhere and nothing. It's as easy as this but too tough to be. This nothingness is important to make you feel refreshed but not always. Too much can make you gloomy and depressed. Maybe it's the time to be refreshed. Break time!!!Enjoy!!! Relax!!!Be Happy!!!

Man, Books, Art & Ideas

I like books which are difficult to understand. Sometimes so difficult that I have to read it twice, thrice or even many times. It's like a challenge & I love them. It takes me deep within myself & I like to meet myself.

The journey within is the greatest & the only journey why you are here. So why not take the plunge & see where the void takes you. I'm empty so I've all the space in the world to welcome new and old alike.

Art liberates me from my soul. It keeps me free from negative emotions. Takes me to a height and let me fall freely without worry. I'm flying yet falling, I'm rising yet at the same place. It's like an orgasmic state of the mind, body and the soul. I'm complete.

There is no learning left. You can be the master and the follower of your own self. There is no place for ego here. The ego died aeons ago taking "You" along with it.

There is no complete art. Art develops along with your development. It's in your hands to give it a shape, positive, negative or neutral.

Man is a selfish being. All his life all he does is is own personal attainment, his likes, dislikes, happiness, sorrow. But that's for good because he is not here on this earth for others. He is here for himself. His journey is for himself alone and he will go away alone.

Perception of an idea differs from person to person. It depends on his values, thoughts, ideas and what he is thinking when he experiences something.

Books That make me think twice,thrice & a hundred times:
The Tao of Jeet Kune Do- Bruce Lee
Reiki: Universal Life Energy by Bodo Baginski and Shalila
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
All Osho Books
