Almost all of us have anxieties and sorrows. Depression is far more common than what the statistics show. Many suffer from lack of joy and happiness in life. Family conflicts, relationship difficulties and social or ideological conflicts are among only a few problems to name. Many of us may be caught frozen by this question: Why me? Not knowing that the dimensions of these human difficulties are far more advanced and widespread than one may think.
We see conflicts inside our hearts and souls each day when we look inside. We also see conflicts among people, society and countries each day when we look outside. There is conflicts and sorrow all over the world, inside and out. What is happening? Why is pain and sorrow so common is our life on this planet? The science says that by of Genes, we are made up to be happy. So why are we feeling all these conflicts? It looks like we have fallen so far from our structure of normal being, the way our Genes are supposed to make us. If we look closer we see that we carry too much weight of bad memories from the past and too much worries about future. We live many years of our lives, or maybe all of it, in sorrow of the past or worry of the future. We never live at the present time.
We keep planning for the future and lose all real present moments of out life. This allows the sorrow of our past and the worry of our future to penetrate the reality of future. SO we live everyday in pain, sorrow and worry. This makes us to feel our pain a lot worse than its real dimensions. The past is gone and does not exist anymore, the future is just a concept and may never come the way we imagine it, yet we lose the only reality we have, which is now and the present time to the sorrow and worry of the past and future.
Since childhood we are thought to learn from our mistakes and plan to achieve important goals in future. While there is real value in this practice, it becomes the new Habit of our behaviour and takes over our entire existence, separating us from the way our nature is being dictated by our genes, to live at the moment and be real at the present time. This is the origin of our internal conflict that leads into the external conflicts with others in family, society, the world.
We need a SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION. A revolution of learning to live in reality of the present time. Disconnecting our minds from sorrows of our past and worries of our fut re. This is the most needed revolution at our present time in this world. Yet this is the only revolution that does not need any destruction or blood shed. This only needs awakening, realization of where the problem is and regular practice to bring our mind to each moment of our life.
There is tremendous amount of energy, joy, healing, happiness, compassion and understanding locked inside us. We need to open the door and allow the light of present time to shine these gifts of nature inside us. EACH MOMENT IS IMPORTANT, BUT THIS MOMENT IS THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE, THIS IS IT. THIS CAN BE OUR YEAR. THE YEAR OF OUR COLLECTIVE SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION TO A BETTER SELF, BETTER FAMILY, BETTER SOCIETY, BETTER COUNTRY, BETTER WORLD. ONCE WE DO THIS, WE REALIZE THAT ALL THESE CLASSIFICATION AND BOUNDARIES ARE SECONDARY AND THE PRIMARY REALITY IS THAT WE ARE ALL ONE BODY OF EXISTENCE AND INTERCONNECTED. SO WHEN EACH OF US MAKE THESE CHANGES, WE ARE IMPACTING THE BETTERMENT OF THE WHOLE WORLD.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.
