Are you surprised to know that we live simultaneously in two parallel worlds?
One is the outer world that relates to external comforts where the brain and mind began to make things technologically better. The other is the inner world that deals with subtle things like thought and feeling where we are struggling to make it better.
Mankind has always tried to become something better. Exploiting that principle on the outside, over time becoming something has given mankind a sense of achievement, comforts, and made the world a better place to live. Using the same principle of becoming something, mankind wanted to be better himself inwardly too. He has miserably failed and caused misery and suffering.
Does transformation come about by becoming something that we are not? Is transformation a matter of time?
Most of us are accustomed to think that time is necessary for transformation: I am something now, and to change what I am into what I should be requires time.
There are two kinds of time: chronological time and psychological time. We cannot reject chronological time. But is there time as the mind thinks of it? Is there time apart from the mind?
Psychological time is the product of the mind. The foundation of the psychological time is thought. It is just a memory of our past experiences in response to our present that is creating our future. By introducing time, we are postponing or avoiding to see “what is.” To see “What is” it is essential that we have a quiet mind.
How can we possibly live in both these opposing worlds simultaneously?
Can we explore the possibility of balancing the two worlds and learn to live in a timeless awareness and still function in a time-bound manner?
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 June 28th , 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.
