immediately aware of life

People will misunderstand you, judge you, and demonise you once you finally step into your truest calling. Once you turn around and realise that most of the baggage and energy you were carrying around, was never really yours, but was imprinted on you by those who could not handle their own insecurities, people will despise you. Once you begin to Hand back the energies one, by one, and refuse to indulge in low vibrational behaviours and beings, the world will call you selfish. They will call you reckless, rebellious and careless, but these are all the languages of the wounded soul, the soul who does not understand that the journey to self love is filled with sacrifice. And no matter how somebody lights up the best of your day, on their good days, if they inject you with equal poisoning on their worst days, then they too must be obliterated, exiled from your immediate awareness, as you pursue a life with no sinister bondage, and malicious interaction. There is this thing that we do where we constantly indulge in, and sustain narcissists because we feel sorry for them, because a part of us knows that their destructive behaviours stem from a deep internal loneliness and dissatisfaction, but they will give us too these clothes to wear if we allow them, and consciously too. Do not aid their destructive tendancies, and do not aid your own.

fadedfairies  asked:

What would you reply to someone who says life is pointless? *theoretically** why continue living if suffering is inevitable?

So long as you suffer, life is not pointless. It is an invitation to go beyond it. 

The aspiration to be free from suffering is what urged Siddhartha out of his kingdom and onto the path of a wandering monk, later to be known as the Buddha. What he had to share was a most elegant, direct, and sublime timeless teaching. 

We are not what we take ourselves to be. There is a way that is beyond the confines of the suffering inherent in our mundane confusion. 

So long as we suffer, we are urged to move beyond it. Even in your question “why continue if suffering is inevitable” there is the assumption that the body’s death would terminate your existence and therefore end your suffering.

It is motivated by the same evolutionary force of intuiting your nature to be free from suffering and filled with bliss. Suffering is in the consciousness. Yet if you mistake the origin of suffering to be something outside yourself, which means to say an object of your consciousness, you may do terrible things in attempt to be rid of it. Wars, genocides, shootings, and suicide to name a few. And if you mistake bliss’ origin to come from somewhere outside yourself, you will go through life fervently seeking short-lived and limited forms of happiness but never feeling fully satisfied.

To know that the eternal way beyond suffering and the abode of bliss is within you as the very basis of reality is the intention of the spiritual path. 

In the end, life is not something for us to judge as being with or without a point. Life is a mystery beyond solving. It is not meant to be solved, like an endless knot. Allowing it to be as it is reveals the spontaneous and immediate nature of aliveness. Eternal. Endless.

Become aware of your assumptions about life, yourself, and reality. Then question them relentlessly. 

I suppose all that’s fairly intense but so is the ripeness for such a person questioning life beyond suffering. 

Namaste :P
