Food For Thought #10

From silence, came thought,
from thought, came ego,
and from ego, came speech.
So if speech is effective,
how much more so must be its source?” – Ramana Maharshi

You know, in the case of most of us, the mind is noisy, everlastingly chattering to itself, soliloquizing or chattering about something or trying to talk to itself to convince itself of something; it is always moving, noisy. And from that noise, we act. Any action born of noise produces more noise, more confusion.

But if you have observed and learned what it means to communicate, the difficulty of communication, the non-verbalization of the mind — that is, that communicates and receives communication — then, as life is a movement, you will, in your action, move on naturally, freely, easily, without any effort, to that state of communion. And in that state of communion, if you inquire more deeply, you will find that you are not only in communion with nature, with the world, with everything about you, but also in communion with yourself. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

Until We Realize

The thing is until we realize that it is important to keep ourselves open to make changes in our conceptions, beliefs or thoughts wherever if required, we will never let ourselves to know the truth and we will keep looking and perceiving things through our misconceptions with a belief that we will get somewhere which again is a misconception. If we were seeing from truth in the first place we’d already be enlightened and would be aware about where we are leading ourselves. But to see from the truth, first we have to let go of our ego and ignorance as it doesn’t really ever let us to achieve enlightenment. With ego and ignorance within us, we try to solve an illusory problem, but truly the only thing the ego and ignorance will ever let us to find is that it is headed for nothing. When we realize our obstructions, limitations and incompleteness only then does the awakening happen and ego get demolished.

In a nutshell, it is about self-awareness which indeed is a continuous process, be in touch with your own self as discovering and understanding our own self is a continuous process.

Striving To Be True

Striving to be true to ourselves and the world around us, it should be possible to exist in a state of transparency, nothing to hide, unaffected and unhindered by any form of judgment and scrutiny, it should all pass right through our transparent being. If we were to feel impacted by the judgment of others, it would hit the shield we use to cover up inner shame, shame which stems from an inner lie we’ve nurtured through ego and allowed to manifest into an embarrassing or shameful affliction. Look within and set aside the ego. Transparency is a state to be consistently aimed for, liberating on the soul and is very achievable. Don’t allow reality to be defined by nurtured lies and excuses.
