Our general assumption is that human life spans for seventy, eighty, ninety, or to some even hundred years.
Does life begin only when we take our first breath and ends when we breath out the last?
Is it that life starts only where we know it and ends where it seems we know it ends?
Let us imagine standing on the bank of a river. From where we stand and see the water flowing, we don’t really know the source of where water is flowing from, and we are also unknown about where the water is rushing on towards the destination beyond. Our knowledge about the river is confined to what we see before our eyes.
Similarly, when we are unaware of the source where the flow of life comes, nor the destination where it rushes to is unknown, it is natural for us to assume that life starts when we are born and ends when we die and leave the body.
Can we say that the entire water of the river is only what we see within the reach of our sight?
Because we merely do not know the source, as well as its destination, it cannot disprove that the water comes from somewhere and proceeds to some other place. Likewise, our life is not just the outcome of merely a woman and a man coming together. It cannot be just a lucky accident.
What does it mean when we say Beyond Self-Awareness?
We must purge the past, every moment live the present with self-awareness and prepare ourselves beyond self-awareness into the future. In other words, we must allow the past to open and let it flow in the present. We must clearly see our true self with self-awareness in the present. And we must we live our present with the vision of preparing our future beyond self-awareness.
At the Happyness center our main aim is to help you develop mindfulness and deeper awareness of your inner self. We learn to see ourselves in silent observation and enquiry rather than act from the noisy activity outside.
Come join us at the Happyness Center for our Monthly Meditation, Sunday August 29th , as we explore and discuss about building inner awareness and attention through observation.
We all lead busy lives, and meditation can help us relax and renew. We will share, learn, and practice together. Group meditations has many advantages that can reinforce our desires of daily practice that inspires us and others.
