SOS BOOK (Chapter 3.6) Visualizing our liberation & freedom: a future perspective
Visualizing your ideal future and holding the ‘right motivation’ is critical for success in any field. It helps empower us & guide us in the right direction. This strategy also applies to our personal quest of self-development with its Inner Journey.
IT HELPS TO IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD LOOK & FEEL LIKE TO SUCCEED.
Holding the CORRECT motivation is central to this visualization process. Let’s explore this ideal future of what our liberation might look like. These techniques are additional aids to our success.
WHAT IDEAL FUTURE SHOULD WE VISUALIZE?
IMAGINE YOURSELF ACTING WISELY: UTILIZING AWARENESS, COMPASSION & LOVING KINDNESS.
This awareness would ideally utilize a state of heightened or ‘higher’ consciousness. Our effort & talents would be offered freely & joyously. We would aim to benefit others including ourselves and all humanity, but without an attachment to this. We would follow our passion & joy without causing harm to ourselves & others.
OUR PERSONAL QUEST. OUR ULTIMATE TEST!
Such a personal quest is perhaps our ultimate challenge or test. It’s envisions the pinnacle of human possibility! It’s the measure of our individual & unique human potential. We select our own goals be they limited or grand. We work at our own pace.
CHOOSING PERSONAL OR SPIRITUAL MASTERY?
Most people on a life quest aspire to achieve some degree of personal, emotional or spiritual mastery. What would this mastery of our emotions & our awareness look like? This involves being unconditionally loving.
Can you visualize what that might look & feel like?
Can you imagine expanding our COMPASSION & LOVE, to embrace all humanity and all sentient life?
Could we EXPAND OUR AWARENESS to encompass all that’s around us, even the whole Universe?
TAKING MASTERY BEYOND THOUGHT, TIME & SPACE?
It’s impossible through normal thinking to embrace the true notion of ONENESS or the concept of Infinity & Eternity. As these are ABSTRACT concepts these can only be approximated. There is however another approach… This requires the enhanced capacities of a meditative or tantric state. That allows an opening up of our HIDDEN RESOURCES via our subconscious mind.
OUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND CAN ACCESS A PANORAMIC AWARENESS & CONSCIOUSNESS.
The deep meditative state also allows us a connection to deep insight & knowing. It enables deeper inspiration and helps us to unleash our pure genius!
It is hard to explain exactly how such powerful realizations occur. This however occurs automatically when our thinking mind is quietened or distracted for long enough.
INSIGHT MANIFESTS WHEN WE ARE FULLY ENGAGED IN ‘THE NOW’ OF ANY MOMENT.
This meditative state can be triggered by nature, music, dance, art or any joy-filled activity. This connection can include a feeling of bliss, love, joy, inner peace & equanimity.
THIS STATE OF COMMUNION CONNECTS US WITH ALL SENTIENT & CONSCIOUS LIFE.
This connectedness may extend to the entire universe and even beyond. It can ultimately embrace ‘ALL THAT IS AND EVER WILL BE’. It can even include the experience of timelessness or being beyond time & space, in an eternal ‘NOW’.
But how would we start such an exploration and this inner journey? How could we start this ultimate quest? This discussion continues in Chapter 3.7
