On Our Way to Inner Realization

inner realization

We are all after something. Some call it happiness, security, a loving family, success, or prefer to find it in the face of money and luxurious life. Others turn to religion, spend their lives in loneliness, dedicate all their time and energy to art, books, sport, work or else.

All these people have one thing in common – they are looking for something. For a secret. Salvation. Inner peace. Perfection.

They may or may not have goals, direction and a path to follow, but at least they are doing something. Even if they are dreamers and thinkers (the world needs people like these too), they are still trying to reach that level of life which they feel exists.

There is one thing they miss though…

At the end of the day they all have their inner fights, they compare themselves to the person that left the house earlier and are not always satisfied with the conclusion. They try to appreciate what they have, to seize the moment and find the meaning in all that.

And still there is that feeling of incompleteness – when you know that something more needs to be done, achieved, said… but you have no idea what. Because you rushed into becoming someone better without even having a clear vision of your goal and you didn’t take the very first step of our journey…

Inner realization, self-awareness, self-consciousness, getting to know yourself and defining where you are and where you’re heading.

We are who we are. We are here. At that exact moment.

And only after we truly understand that and connect with our inner self, will we be able to move forward and live life on a higher spiritual level, where happiness, success, love, simplicity, belief and peace are achievable in their purest form.

Instead of pondering way too long on whether one must find or create himself, try to set free of all cliches, doubts, learnt rules and principles, other people’s opinions, past experience, desires and eliminate the negative.

Just relax. Take it easy. Give it time. And eventually the realization will come.

How to Reach a State of Freedom

Here is how to get to that state where you will be free of everything, your mind will be empty and floating and without even realizing you will understand many things about yourself and your future actions.

  • Realize that control of the outer world is temporary and embrace insecurity;
  • let go of the people and things that bother you;
  • eliminate all distractions;
  • concentrate on silence;
  • observe your thoughts;
  • be awake and aware;
  • set yourself free of jealousy, hatred, anger and fear;
  • breathe consciously;
  • try to feel the present moment and appreciate it;
  •  find contentment in the peace and stillness around you.

It is so hard to get into that meditative state nowadays with all the distractions around us and most importantly those inside us.

Try these techniques slowly, implement them into your everyday lifestyle and practice them until they become your habits.

Then you will be a brand new person whose past, fears, doubts and negative thoughts will be gone to clear the road for better things – positive, simple and beautiful.

Then stress won’t be a problem anymore and everything will be in your control.

Your willpower and self-confidence will be boosted because you will know how powerful you are, what to do exactly and how to concentrate on the important and meaningful without being distracted.

You have the power and you’ve got the chance to use it wisely.

Never forget that what you’re looking for may be in the only place you haven’t checked – inside you. When you finally achieve self-realization and inner peace, don’t stop learning because that will mean you think you already know everything… and if you think so, it means that you haven’t learned anything at all.

Always be an eager learner and the moment you understand something try to share it with others and guide them through dark times.

Here are a few wonderful quotes on the subject that are definitely worth reading:

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” – Deepak Chopra

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” – Buddha

Peace comes from within.Do not seek it without.” – Buddha

“If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital…” – Dalai Lama

Beautiful words. Simple and true.

So before you rush into saving the world, making a lot of money, seeking for someone to spend your life with and making a career, stop for a while, take a deep breath and contemplate on the current situation. Look inside yourself and try to find the missing piece there because the emptiness you feel in your life won’t be filled with something from the outer world.

Realize that it’s all about you – finding, creating, loosing, disappointing, improving, appreciating yourself and working on the three sacred things we are given: our mind, body and soul. Use them to grab all the opportunities and deserve all the love in the world.

And now smile. Feel the simplicity and plainness in the chaos, the silence in the noisiness and find the beauty among all the bad things going on these days. Enjoy life in the purest and simplest way – by living, laughing and loving. Be peaceful and in harmony with yourself.

And then you will be ready to achieve whatever you want… and even more.
