Striking a New Trail – Catalytic Action towards Happiness for All

Striking a New Trail – Catalytic Action towards Happiness for All | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
This beautiful, blue marble of a planet is racing across space with dignity. Do we match it in dignity and, hence, deserve to belong to this planet? Obviously, we don’t! The reasons are clear too. Can we do something to change the scenario?
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

Being driven by the conventional attitudes, such as chasing fame, money and other items of ego-satisfaction, human beings are shaped into robots.  Meeting life from that robotic neurology creates deplorable social situations.  It is good to explore whether one can strike a new trail and help humanity free itself from the unfortunate state in which it finds itself now.

Effervescence to Natural Spirituality and Freedom – Anita Moorjani’s NDE

Effervescence to Natural Spirituality and Freedom – Anita Moorjani’s NDE | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
People fall into conditioned responses unknowingly. As a result, their reactions to others become robotic. They can release themselves from this sad state of affairs through transcendence to inner freedom brought about by simple self-awareness.
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

Mental transformation towards inner freedom requires choiceless awareness, as J. Krishnamurti points out. The tendency to move in that direction is augmented by many factors that are not part of organized religious practices. One such factor is the near death experience. Messages from Anita Moorjani, who went through such an experience, are indeed quite powerful.

The True Self is Anonymous – It is the Divine essence that is Universal

The True Self is Anonymous – It is the Divine essence that is Universal | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it

We are all familiar with the ego-self, but with deeper awareness we move towards our True Self as different from the thought created ego-self.  That transformation brings about a radical change in our outlook towards our fellow beings and the animal world.  There is then the possibility of creating a peaceful humanity who would live without hurting each other and destroying nature’s offspring.

The essence in all beings is a spark of the Divine and so, it is the same in all. It is not identified with any nation, race or religion. Thus, it is anonymous, like a tree in the forest. The awareness of this fact brings in universal love.

The Place of Sleep in Wholesome Living and in the Quest for Peace

The Place of Sleep in Wholesome Living and in the Quest for Peace | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
Sleep has an important role to play in our healthy life.  Applying ourselves to both its practical and esoteric aspects can take us a long way towards understanding the content of the wider consciousness of which the mind is but a small expression.  The field of natural spirituality is associated with that consciousness.Sleep! – yes, we all love it. However, not many of us give it an affectionate hug. Rather, it is gone through as a matter of course. When we understand its deeper meaning, life is transformed; we receive insights into natural spirituality.

Psychological Mortality and the Purity of Aloneness

Psychological Mortality and the Purity of Aloneness | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it

 

 

The dissolution of the robotic response of the human brain is necessary to understand the hidden aspects of life and the afterlife. Such a dissolution can be called the psychological mortality. It leads to wholesome and holistic living.

TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

Ending of the ego can be considered as a matter of psychological death.  This is not usually looked into as a transformation that can take us beyond the purview of the conventional mindset.  Exploring into that region brings about a living at higher dimensions than that of the neurotic one in which the vast majority of human beings is currently caught.

The Externalized State of Mind – Cause of All Unhappiness on Earth

The Externalized State of Mind – Cause of All Unhappiness on Earth | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
People tend to go by satisfying beliefs and stay with them rather than be willing to explore the journey of life. The wall they thus build around them end up as their psychological prison. Self-awareness alone can cure this unfortunate situation.
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

As a result of the conventional way our minds function, we let our attention be externalized – that is, factors such as personal aggrandizement, chasing fame, excitement etc occupy our minds ceaselessly.  Freedom from such an unhappy situation can come about through reflective self-awareness.

Being on a Journey of Discovery towards the Truth - All Good Things Would Happen as Byproducts

Being on a Journey of Discovery towards the Truth - All Good Things Would Happen as Byproducts | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
The vibrant river waters are alive. A river in flood overflows the banks and forms pools of water which later get delinked from the river. The stagnant pool water slowly gathers all kinds of scum and forgets its onetime vibrancy. Is there a message?
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

Keeping in view the lofty purpose of life helps us embark on a journey that can take us to the ultimate Truth.  It also helps us bring about compassion and order in our lives.  The analogy of the dancing waters in contrast to the stagnant pool of water is brought forth to guide our lives.

Eagerness to understand what lies beyond our lifetime here can be very educative.  It can bring in meaning and orderliness to our life because the messages from near death experiences and final visions of those who pass on make us understand the purpose of life and death.

Passivity and Non-action – The Factors Behind Fundamental Transformation

Passivity and Non-action – The Factors Behind Fundamental Transformation | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
Effortful movements towards spiritual transformation sustain the habitual neurology and so dissolution of the ego does not take place. What can help are the two factors of passivity and inward non-action which move us on to a different dimension.
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

The matter of fundamental transformation of the mind towards releasing oneself from the habitual neurology cannot take place through practicing a method or religious system because they will continue to sustain the ego.  What can help is the understanding of passivity and inward non-action which create the right soil for the change to take place.

Peaceful Life Through Understanding Paranormal Phenomena.

Peaceful Life Through Understanding Paranormal Phenomena. | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
People are looking for peaceful life from within the turbulence of the conventional mind-set. This includes the habitual religious practices too. Such peacefulness can only be temporary as they do not eliminate the cause of mental disturbances.

Stable mental peace results from understanding the messages from some paranormal phenomena.  They make us think ‘out of the box’.  Slavery to conventional belief systems falls off. One begins to apply oneself diligently to discovering the deeper content of life and death.   In that direction, the out-of-body experience and the near death experience go a long way in educating us.
