4 Corners of Self-Realization

In reality, whatever I've seen and experienced means nothing. Nothing has ever happened. To gain self-realization, the world has to be left as it is. Even I say the world is false, yet I indulge in it. That shows my doubts and spiritual immaturity.

There are only two things in the world; world (perception) and existence (awareness). To take interest in what has happened is to get involved in worldly affairs. That leads to nowhere.

Illusion is nothing. However much I may have achieved in the dream, yet all is false.

There are no strict rules how I should behave in the world but I must follow some guidance in order to remind me and keep me in line with my life's goal. This morning I have put 4 recommendations how I should behave in the world...

1. Keep Self - Awareness

At all time I should be aware of "I AM sense" and separate the sense of my existence from thoughts and words. Whatever I do I have to be aware of my existence.

It is not awareness of my individual self it is awareness of the sense of presence.

It is not self-observation where I observe my thoughts and feelings, it is actually forgetting this personal "I" and acting in the world. Performance is what matters and not who is a performer.

2. Detachment from personal "I"

The key of gaining self-realization lies in DOING JUST NOTHING. It is the road across boredom, melancholy and depression. Activities create misery, worry and anxiety and they are included in the world. Being aware and doing nothing is the key.

I want to detach myself from others and stand alone. Let's do things that must be done, don't engage in something new. To do something is restlessness of the personality -  identification with the body. It is the habit of ignorance, the habit of engaging in some activity all the time. From now on, I'll leave people and things as they are.

I have to pay special attention to things that make me angry. Investigate why something insults me and be completely free of anger. Keep inner awareness, be quiet and don't feel insults. The surge of anger indicates my habit of wanting to dictate some things to others.

3. Living life with compassion and humility

Generally talking, people are ignorant and cruel. I forgive those who don't understand me and out of their own ignorance try to harass me. I never harbor hatred in my mind towards anyone. I have no desire to take revenge because that results only in misery. I do not create enemies, rather I forgive and I move on.

Life is tough, not only for me but for everyone on this planet. There is no need to define why it is so, it just is. From now on, I need to be kind to people. Compassion is not being cruel to anybody.

I'm satisfied with what I have. The rich is not the one who has a lot but the one who needs less. I am not greedy, not even for spiritual knowledge.

4. Performance is all that matters

Humor, flexibility, be "large" from the very core of my heart. Acting with lightness, humor, radiate energy of happiness and let others take it, enjoy whatever I'm doing.

To leave the world as it is, is the great act of courage. Fear underlines misery. I should be free of any fear knowing who I am and enjoying my play. I am free and I should behave like that.

These are four corners of self-realization. To be the one with my true nature is real happiness. Being happy and leaving others as they are. I do not judge anyone, don't gossip and I don't consider people's actions as important.
