yung_pueblo. Trying our best to move forward with the action that supports our aspi

Trying our best to move forward with the action that supports our aspiration is how we make progress. Normally, the first immediate reaction when a difficult situation arises is simply the past trying to recreate itself โ€” old conditioning seeking to strengthen itself because that is what the mind knows best. When we are learning to live in a new way, taking a moment before moving forward helps us see more clearly, opening pathways of action that can bring us different results than what we have gotten in the past. Who we are is greatly impacted by the subconscious patterns that control our perception of reality. How we feel is deeply affected by our past emotional historyโ€” heavy emotions that do their best to recreate themselves in the present. What we see can only become objective and clear when we observe, accept and let go of what was silently dwelling deep within us. When we rise above the past and use our effort to respond to life instead of reacting to it, by having the patience and perseverance to build wiser habits, we open the door wider to living in a new way. Without patience and acceptance of our imperfections it is difficult to build new habits. The proper balance of patience and determination makes great goals possible. Sending love to all beings. May we all be happy and free. My book, Inward, is on sale via the link and available in bookstores ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŒŽ #yungpueblo

A few notes: Freedom exists when wanting ceases. There is a difference between wanting and craving, craving makes the mind more cloudy, but both make it difficult to be happy. When we crave we are immediately unsettled and pulled away from the present. When we crave we cannot observe the liberating truth of reality. Craving is the cause of miseryโ€” the Buddha pointed this out 2500 years ago, objective self-observation reveals this truth. The mind has the tendency to focus on the future or the past, for it to live in the present moment requires intentional training. It is when we focus on what we don't have that we miss the naturally emergent miracle of the present. If we struggle to be grateful for the sun that feeds our earth, the moon that balances our water, the air that fills our lungs, the food that nurtures our body, and the loved ones that support our wellbeing, then how can we be grateful for the many opportunities that come with being alive? Sending love to all beings. May we all cultivate our ability to be and our ability to observe. May we all be happy and free. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŽ #yungpueblo

The rapid movements of the mind are so subtle that it can feel like we are the makers of our present destiny, when in reality the past is pushing itself into our present, inclining us toward feeling the same emotions and thinking the same thoughts. The way our mental past forces itself into our present gives us little room to decide for ourselves how we actually want to feel and gives little concern to whether or not our reaction comes from an objective observation of how things truly are. When traveling inward there are times when we hit a particularly rocky layer of the mind, a sediment of conditioning that has been so thickly reinforced that it takes patience and persistence for it to soften and release. When we work on letting go of the hardened inner layers there is often an impact on our personal livesโ€” we feel the storms of yesterday or the heaviness of times that have long since passed, there is the feeling of being on the edge of turbulence and disharmony as we open ourselves up to the process of deconditioning. It is the habit of holding on that causes this tension, because of the countless repetition of the same behavior there is a struggle to let go. The same way patterns can accumulate inside of us, they can also be released. Letting go is possible, but it requires courage, effort, an effective healing technique and consistent practice to see deep results. Consistency and a good healing tool that can unearth the patterns in the subconscious are critical because the mind is immensely vast and it takes time to learn how to live in a way that no longer recreates the past. Are there tools out there that are really helping you? Please share in the comments if so. It is always great to see what people are using to heal themselves. Different techniques have different goals and approach the mind at different depths. When looking for a tool that meets you where you are at it is important to find something that challenges you without overwhelming youโ€” in that space we can grow at a sustainable rate.

Difficulty arises when we forget that life naturally comes with ups and downs. The reigning law of the universe is change, which means that all things eventually reveal their impermanence. This is why spending time on cultivating our inner peace and wisdom is essential for a happy life. The turbulence and storms of the ocean of life can set us on a course that takes us far away from our aspirations unless we have the inner awareness to properly steer the ship of our own life. Allowing ourselves to deepen our understanding of change can help us sail forward toward greater freedom and happiness. From the atomic level to the mental level we are constantly changing. Who we are is a series of rapid fluctuations that come together to create a momentary phenomenon. Even if some behavior patterns are similar, who we were last year is fundamentally different from who we are now. Struggle comes from pushing against change and from not allowing ourselves to grow, move and evolve. The old way of thinking is that human beings are static and linear in nature, but if we look deeper we can feel that human existance is essentially dynamic. Dont fight change, you are change.

Friendships that feel like home are naturally disarming, we can stop the performances and come forward the way we authentically feel in the moment. Good friendships have a reciprocal quality, when either person is experiencing struggle the other is ready hold space, meaning we listen without judgment and with a heart full of compassion. Long lasting friendships are a bond that rise above competition, where we feel their victory as if it were our own. True sympathetic joy, the joy we feel for the success of another, is the absence of jealousy. The deepest bonds are spaces where vulnerability is welcome. Sending love to all beings.

Once the tense energy that is wrapped around a memory is released, this past moment goes from being a point of difficulty to an experience that teaches us to not allow such things to happen in the future or that change is a natural part of life that should not cause us misery. Deep healing happens when we engage the subconscious and start releasing the patterns that are cluttered in there. Though our conditioning and emotional history may seem hardened to the point that it feels permanent, it actually isn't. The mind is always changing and it is malleable enough to move it in a different direction. Tough moments are a natural outcome when are in a process of letting go. Putting effort into choosing new behaviors and releasing old bundled up emotions can temporarily cause imbalance. It takes a great deal of courage to unbind our old conditioning. Questioning what we have held firm for years and expanding our perspective beyond the grasp of our emotions into the realm of objective truth is no easy task. With equanimity the process becomes smoother. Everything is always changing, which means that pain cannot last forever. Letting go requires a process of purification, a tool or practice that challenges us, but does not overwhelm us. To be committed to our freedom is to say no to fear and yes to honesty. Fear is the maker of stories that lead us into delusion. Honesty is the revealer of attachments that hold us back from embracing truth. Sending love to all beings. May we all release the burdens we carry. May we all be happy and free. May our experiences give us the wisdom needed for true liberation.

When both are committed to healing themselves as individuals and growing in self awareness, they can walk side by side into a new life of greater harmony and harmlessness. Ultimately, we must remember that it takes two people to lift up a relationship. When both people in a relationship focus on giving they each receive more, when the two focus on taking and controlling they both end up lacking in fulfillment and nourishment. A love without attachments does not mean that it is a love without connection and commitments. The difference is that attachments are controls we impose on others and commitments are what we agree to voluntarily. Sending love to all beings.
