I have written many times about conditioning on this blog. It’s your programming of your mind that keeps you in a loop. And the loop is – You keep creating repeatedly what you actually want to avoid! Sounds familiar?
If yes, then go ahead.
In your early life, the experiences , environment and people around you contribute in creating the patterns within you which continue to play their roles in the later years of your life. This is Conditioning.
You are conditioned to repeat some patterns and live in the habitual ways manifesting similar things in life.
Even when you are living life with these patterns, something inside you truly knows that you can do beyond these patterns. If this resonates with you, then you are already awakened to take your life away from your programmed way of living.
This awareness that you are trapped in old patterns but still are capable of something beyond them is necessary before you start living your True Self.
How do you live your True Self and go beyond your habitual patterns?
Sharing with you few insights which are essential in my opinion.
This is what makes some people suffer.
You have problems in your life and you keep blaming yourself for the same or you feel that you can’t be happy until your problems are solved!
Of course, everyone of us faces situations and circumstances in our lives which are problematic. But having problems in your life never means that you are bad or weak or unworthy.
Why are we afraid of taking inadequate or ill-defined or not-very–polished steps?
In reality, we learn by taking steps and making mistakes before we can create anything productive or beautiful. Just think about your childhood drawings.
Did you ever know what you were creating before you started putting lines on a canvas?
It was just your curiosity that inspired you. It was just you saw other people doing things and wanted to add your strokes too.
Where do we lose that curiosity and our instinct to follow through?
As we grow adults and get conditioned with social norms and expectations, we tend to lose this part of ourselves. The part which is not afraid of taking steps with curiosity, enjoyment of the process and learning from our results.
I look at my kids and they inspire me in this regard.
Every stroke that you make has a life in it. Never underestimate what you are creating *even though at first it may not seem beautiful or useful. *
I am not a Quantum Scientist. Very very far from it. And I don’t claim anything here.
However I believe in the primacy of Consciousness. I believe that everything arises from Consciousness and goes back into it. As Dr. Amit Goswami says, the Consciousness is the ground of all being!
I see a lot of potential in harnessing the understanding of Quantum Mechanics in creating transformation in a person’s life.
Recently Higgs-Boson particle is in lime-light. The efforts put in by all those involved in this huge science experiment tell us how far at present we are in a position to go for* knowing the fundamentals of our existence.
It’s really profoundly remarkable what has been done and still in the process at CERN, geneva.
We are going deeper and deeper in the physical realm to find out the source of our origin. We are on a reductionist path to reach at the bottom and minute from where everything rises to the top.
With due respect to all those taking this approach and their tireless efforts to discover something very fundamental, I always question myself – Are we really on the right path?
Few days back I was told by one of my clients that he had visited my blog and liked it very much. He said that he was happy to see resourceful material available here.
I felt good and I am not bragging here to impress you. What I actually want to tell you is that the client of mine ended his talk by telling me that although the posts he read were quite useful to him (providing him insights, tools and perspectives), he could not decide easily which one to read depending on what he actually needed in that moment.
He asked me to do a favor for him, so that a visitor like him, who wants to read on specific issues can easily find a relevant article. I understood what he was looking for and wanting me to do.
For any blog, this is an issue that old content gets buried as new stuff keeps on coming. This is because a blog is organized like a journal in a chronological order with the newest content at the top. There are ways to find what you are looking for using a manual search, categories search or tags search (and yes a blog design can be modified to make things more easily accessible, but that would take a long some more time for me to implement!)
However I got motivated and decided to provide my readers with a post that will guide them find what they are looking for in that moment.
The content on this site (up till now) is organized below in this article. Hope this shall help you more in making the best use of your invested time at this site. I went back to my old posts, thought why I actually wrote them, and then categorized them based on various insights or content concepts.
You are special and you have a special role to play in this world. You are unique and the world needs your uniqueness. Keeping it with you is selfishness. So let your uniqueness flow.
You might have learned not to express your uniqueness as you might have been told to follow others. You might have learned that your UNIQUENESS has no value as you see others doing better than you in some areas. But don’t confuse other people’s unique expression as a competition to your own creative and unique self-expression.
You have a special job to do in this world. You have a special place to live from in this world. You deserve that. No matter whatever you have convinced yourself with up to this point in life, this TRUTH remains that YOU are UNIQUE and your UNIQUENESS is required to be expressed for the benefit of this world.
