Dear Rad , forgive me if this question has been asked before, as i am sure it has , but I an very new to the MB,and would still like to ask this . It seems imperative that a reorientation of awareness takes place for optimum growth to take place in given lifetime. Awareness itself has to re orientate itself to focus gradually more an more on the soul itself rather then the personality and its desires for separative fulfillment. Firstly i would like to ask is this a realistic and possible goal to set oneself . Their are many awareness and meditative or even devotional practices that seem to help to do this > Do you have any specific advice or specific meditative or awareness techniques, even lifestyle techniques which would help in time for this realignment of awareness to take place. I would imagine for most individuals it is a rather slow and perhaps an ordeal like process . I would appreciate your advice on this matter , Love and Light Gino
First, please understand that ALL DESIRES manifest from the Soul not the 'personality'. The ego only reflects that which is occurring in the Soul in all of us.
To me the best way to expand anyone's 'awareness' is to expand the consciousness of the Soul from within. This does not require forming an allegiance to any specific religious/ philosophical group at all, does not require a 'belief' in anything. It is a matter of simply aligning the Soul with the Natural Laws that were set in motion by the Creator Of All Things. In so doing this allows for actual inner experience that then becomes a source of KNOWLEDGE versus beliefs of any kind.
The Natural Law to do this is linked with the breath itself as it enters and exits the physical body. As long as this occurs the consciousness of the Soul is ensnared in the Natural Laws of cause and effect. Thus, thought/ counter-thought and so on. The thought/ counter-thought creates a kind of 'static' that, of itself, blocks the the consciousness of the Soul to be more aware other than this thought/ counter-thought.
Thus, the go beyond, expand, this is to progressively quiet the breath, the inhale/exhale, to the point where it becomes suspended for a time. Once the breath becomes suspended, remembering that the consciousness of the Soul is NOT DEPENDENT on the physical form of the body, an natural and progressive inner expansion, awareness, of the consciousness of the Soul begins.
The most simple way for you to PROVE TO YOURSELF this Natural Law is to sit vertically and upon the inhaling breath mentally affirm the number one. On the exhaling breath the number two. The 'secret' now is to CONCENTRATE on the one / two. As you concentrate upon this progressively the one/ two becomes like a 'whisper'. And then it will becomes suspended. At that point the inner consciousness of the Soul begins to expand. Expanding in concentric circles that will lead to a perception of Light within the forehead.
Progressively the Soul will begin to fuse with this Light. As that fusion occurs the Soul will begin to naturally perceive, in increasing degrees, the very nature of consciousness itself, and the Origin of that consciousness.
In a nutshell that is what it all comes down too, Bibles and Holy books notwithstanding.
God Bless, Rad
