If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

7/17/2015


A tree fell close to where I live.  It fell due to bugs eating the inside bark and roots.  It was too weak to keep holding itself so it fell and later in the week it was removed.  It happened at night.  I did not see or hear it happening but I saw it in the morning.  After inspecting the tree and the whole it left it just made me think of impermanence and causes and conditions, Alice in wonderland, portal to the other side. Rebirth for the tree, the spirit of the tree, etc.  I actually noticed my mind going through its database to find an explanation for what happened.  It was not particularly important for me to know this answer this day so I went on with my day without thinking about it again.
This morning, the first thing my mind said to me was: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”  I have never thought of this question before and I did not connect this to what happened to the tree at all, but all of the sudden my mind started to dictate the answer as well and it said: “The tree does not have to make a sound to get your reaction.  You just have to know that it fell and immediately the mind will go to its database to find an answer that will suit your understanding and it will be different for everyone.  Some people will ignore the fact that a tree fell because they have bigger worries.  Some people will find someone to blame.  Some people will be fearful that other trees will do the same putting their safety at risk.  Some people will find humor to this situation.  Some will worry about the animals that lost its home.  Some will connect this with an omen, a superstition, a synchronicity, a “sign”.  But there are some…..Who will just know that this is how the universe works, find acceptance and move on because their mind is just Still”

Have you ever been in love?


Very deep past emotional memories from habitual behavior in our relationships can come back to haunt us in the new relationship we are trying to build.  Ask yourself this: Have you ever been truly loved? Have you truly loved?

If you look at yourself now, you can see how the signs of “aging” are showing, but if you sit quietly with your mind, would you notice any signs of maturing?  Look at the patterns you are repeating in your relationships, are they still the same patterns that the YOU from the past used to make or have you created new patterns of behavior based on the new person you have become?  The beliefs and habits of the YOU from the past got you in that relationship you ended.  So, why would the YOU from the past still choose the love partners for the YOU of the present?  As we release the relationship that is ending, we should also release the beliefs and habits that helped creating it so that instead of creating a similar one in the future.  We should instead, explore from our new point of experience and wisdom to create a new reality for our new relationship. 

Now, ask yourself this: Do you want to be happy or do you want to be in love? People are happy when things are going their way and according to their expectation.  If things are going your way then you are being pleased, which means someone else is doing the pleasing.  But, what happens when that other person stops pleasing?  Being happy is not being in love.  Being in love means letting yourself feel and explore all the range of emotions that you as a human being are capable of, from one end to the other.  You let yourself be joyful as well as sad, compassionate as well as angry, passionate as well as depressed.  You can empower as well as blame, forgive and repent.  You loose yourself in lust as well as in tenderness and innocence.  You FEEL.  You aren’t just Happy, you FEEL Happy, plus all the other emotions, after all they all come from the same source: YOU.  Explore YOU, know how it FEELS when your love-partner is close and you know how it FEEL when your love-partner is gone and everything in between.  Put mindfulness in the feeling of your whole being and find out for yourself.

When you love as a human, you rejoice in each others happiness, you desire with all your heart to bring relief to each others torments, you feel tranquility in each others presence and you feel sadness for each others absence.  Human love is ENGAGED emotions.  Feel it!

Fear and the door mat…. A love story

7/10/2015

When you intend to be an open door but people miss to see the entrance and all they see is a door mat, it does not mean you are a door mat.  It means their eye sight won’t see beyond the door mat.  It has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with them.  There is a Rumi quote that says “Why do you stay in prison when the door is wide open?”  The reason is the same; over and over again…Fear.  Fear has many forms and disguises.  Nobody wants to be afraid and many don’t even think that their feeling is fear.  They may say they are confused, angry, lonely, uninterested, etc.  The process of the translation from energy to a feeling is tricky.  It’s like seeing a magician pouring milk into a hat and pulling out a rabbit.  Completely not related or expected.  The truth is that fear not also disguises itself and lies to you but it also keeps you BLIND, and therefore makes you miss on many wonderful opportunities even when they are right in front of you. 
Now, to continue, I am going to explain to you fear in a different way.  Fear, does not mean to be afraid or terrorized.  As humans, in this material world, we were created with different elements such as our organs, senses, cognition, etc, and all of them are important for us to thrive…. Even fear.  The reason we push fear away is because we do not know how to use it effectively.  Fear does not feel good to us so we tend to push away everything that does not feel good, therefore we miss the chance of exploring fear as a tool of advancement for our life.  Yes! Fear can be a tool for advancement in your life, no typos here.
