Move a Mountain

mountain

The circumstances of my life have brought me to a place where I can no longer enjoy moving around physically.  Life decided to teach me a lesson.  It hit me on the head and said:  “Daemon, be still and know yourself.  Travel within yourself.  Find out what you are made of and what you can do apart from moving physically.”

So here I was, suddenly, having to learn how to use my mind without going crazy.  Thoughts left unchecked fly all over the place.  Thoughts are like wild animals.  I had to learn to examine them, restrain them and domesticate them.

Writing is the art of manipulating your chaotic thoughts, aligning them, arranging them next to each other to give meaning to everything.  It’s not as easy as it looks.  It takes years of practice.

While doing this, I realized that real power is not in my ability to move my body, but in my ability to control my own thoughts.

The physical world is the result of what happens in the non-physical realm (thoughts, dreams, intentions).  Nothing in the physical world would exist if it hadn’t first taken form in one of the unseen worlds of the Mind.  The seen is nothing but the crystallization of the unseen.  The real action takes place beyond everything we can see with our two eyes.  It’s all in the mind.

We say of the athlete that he is active and of the philosopher that he is passive.  But when you think of it, which one yields more power?  It’s easier to control the physical body than it is to control your own thoughts.  Is the physically strong man exerting more effort than the thinker?  If there was a contest between the two to see which one could move a mountain first, who do you think would win?

The person who thinks creatively has a better chance of accomplishing anything.

My Destiny

What is my destiny?

Daemon, your goal is to become a tree.

I’m serious…  Where am I going?  I wish to become more than a vegetable.

What I meant was…  Just like a tree, you started as a seed, right?  The seed of something or someone.  The purpose of the seed is to grow and become like daddy.  The seed of a tree becomes a full-grown tree.  So the question is:  You are the seed of what? of who?

I don’t know… my parents?

At the very center of yourself is your seed.  Look inside.  What do you find in there?  What is the most basic or central thing about you?

My heart?

Daemon, you are a conscious being, aware that you are thinking.  So the core of yourself is consciousness.  You are a small piece of awareness.  You are the son of Awareness!

Who is daddy awareness?  What does he look like?  I can’t see him.

Well, that should be your first clue.  Daddy awareness is invisible.  Let’s say “non-physical” instead of invisible.  Your real father (Awareness) is non-physical.  So that is what you should become.

I think I’m invisible enough as it is.  What more can I do, kill myself?

Not the perfect answer, but you’re getting there.  You don’t need to get rid of your physical body to become more like your daddy.  Your physical body will expire eventually and it will happen naturally.  You will become more non-physical automatically.  But what can you do in the meantime, Mr. Awareness Junior?

I don’t know.  I just have to wait I guess and be patient.  Unless you have an invisibility potion…

Daemon, don’t wait until you’re dead to start learning.  You can start exploring your non-physical environment right now, even while “in the physical.”  Your awareness of the non-physical world will not just expand magically after death, you know.

The non-physical world?  Where is it?

In essence, you are a non-physical person (awareness) like daddy, right?  So… what a non-physical person should do is explore his non-physical environment.  Here is a quick list of such places:

  • the world of dreams
  • the world of emotions
  • the world of desires
  • the world of intentions
  • the world of beliefs
  • the world of spirits
  • the world of the unknown
  • the world of fear

There is a ton of good non-physical stuff for you to explore out there, and in there in your own mind.  You do not have to go far to find your non-physical environment.

I’m exploring those worlds already.

Good boy.  What have you learned so far?

I have discovered that the non-physical worlds are much more interesting and full of action than the physical world.  It is quite surprising, considering all the entertainment that our material society offers, to realize that there actually exists something much better in which I can participate as opposed to just watch on a screen.

You are right.  The non-physical worlds exist and they are right in front of (or behind) your nose!  Why are you not more interested in them?  In these worlds, you can actually grow and develop your conscious self and attain incredible heights!

Incredible heights?  What kind of incredible heights?

Healing!  Wisdom!  Love!  Power!

What for?

For long-lasting happiness and elation!

What is elation?

It’s the opposite of depression.

Hmm…  So this is my destiny?  To grow and become like my daddy Awareness by delving more into the creepy non-physical worlds?

Exactly.
