he ability to see something new every day in your life situations is the ability to transform and to grow. Life is evolution. Only a dead thing does not grow, so if we do not grow we are simply dying inside. But why so many people stop growing? It is the idea of permanency. This wrong idea instilled in us during our childhood from the collective unconsciousness and through our family makes us believe in seeking for to establish ourselves here on the earth forever. That creates step by step the idea of permanency, to search for something that is REAL in the external world of form, the world that we see outside. In the traditions of shamans this external world is called “the world of the solid dream”. The World that we live in, the material world and the nature with everything that it has inside is a world of dreams.
What does this mean?
It means that it is an ever-changing reality, and nothing can be truer than that. You see, the reality of a dream is that it is a solid flow of energy that is shaped in different forms (the dream), but because it is fluid, it cannot remain the same and is inevitably changing creating new forms that replace the previous ones. This is happening all the time; nobody watches a dream that is a frozen picture. If it was frozen then it would not be a dream but a picture in our mind. We would say I am watching a picture when I go to bed. Life is the same. If it was permanent it would not be alive! What we call life is this permanent flux; a permanent ever-changing flux. The only permanent thing in it is this ever-changing process and if one cannot accept this facet of reality he will not be able to see this world and himself in it realistically.
But people search permanence in the flux. This is why we fail. Life again and again is going to fail you, it is going to disappoint you exactly because if this search of the permanent inside the impermanent world.
The man who understands that stops searching for the permanent outside because it simply sees that it doesn’t exist there. The only permanent thing is You, the Self that you are, everything else is changing and is going to change forever. So you, your vision of life, not an idea but seeing life for what is; that’s the permanent thing, the stable factor of life - your ability to see, not what you see but the ability itself. You are the constant in the equation. The rest is changing all the time, the rest are the games that life plays to teach us something and it is meant to be like this. The ability to see something new in your situation, in your everyday life is the way out of your prison, the prison of your fixed ideas and understanding of life. You identify with your mind this is why you are searching for stable and fixed belief systems, something to depend upon in your thoughts, something permanent. The same you are searching in the external reality. But life is always changing and taking from us what you have built…sooner or anyway later.
You are not established here on the earth forever a d you know that. This is why you are searching feverishly to find permanence on the earth. You have been brainwashed to fear death and to try to remain permanently on the earth; and you know it does not work this way, life does not work this way.
So you will know nothing if you will see life and yourself from the position of well known. Nothing is well known and for every opinion exists equally its opposite, for every possibility exists the opposite possibility. The person who is seeking permanence will become disappointed…inevitably.
Search for the unknown, search to realize that life is a mystery, develop occult abilities which is the ability to see knew and to see life creatively, it is one of the ways of the mystics of the old times. Develop your extrasensory abilities, your shamanic abilities, to travel to the worlds of dreams and energies and spirits. Of course there people who search permanence even there. There could never be the biggest mistake than that. Shamanism or Yoga or the occult are created and discovered exactly as a doorway to the spirit realm, the fluid realm of energy and the essence of the creation itself and you will discover in all these yourself and the phenomena of the Self itself. Use all these only as a stimulus for self-creation and creativity in every aspect of your life and not as an escape from your inability to find the permanence in this external life you live in. You will not find permanence even there, even in the world of the mystic. Actually much more there because in the world of occultism and esoteric knowledge exists only chaos and dreams of the Unified field of consciousness - nothing permanent there. Just be creative and enjoy your existence on this planet as long as you have it; soon you will be gone. And why all this is happening like this you will ask. Why the world was created in such a way that we seek permanence, but we cannot find, Is it a joke from God to us?
Of course not, but we do not realize what this existence is all about. Through all this life’s experiences you can have a chance to look inside the essence of God itself. Inside the essence of creation, to see the greatness of all beings and the creation itself and truly understand what we call God or the Universe. And believe me, once you are there you don’t want to come back from there ever. Once you realize the magnificence of this Universe, once you see with your own eyes the magnificence of this Life you are saved forever. That’s why this world was created in the first place and that’s why we are here, to realize and experience the immense beauty of infinity itself and the boundless knowledge of the Universe. Enjoy it!
