Blaming

The nature of the human self is not to accept blame or responsibility. Hence, an immature person accuses others when experiencing difficulties, hardship or suffering. The evolved person blames himself, however, for ignorance and lack of wisdom and takes responsibility for what has gone wrong. A difficulty is regarded as a good lesson. Constrictions can lead to new knowledge and openings. The habit of self-pity and psychological suffering is a great handicap in one’s life. In order to get out of the case of reinforcing suffering, constant watchfulness of the self’s tendency to justify itself whilst blaming others is required.

‘When you blame others the ego is protected for a while, but if you blame yourself greater wisdom and fresh insights are the rewards.’

Dreams

From ancient times the idea of what is real and what is not has challenged human thought. There are different zones of consciousness, as there are different realities. During our wakeful state, we consider most sharable experiences as real, but what is real about a dream?

A healthy working relationship between our senses, mind and heart develop to reconcile the ever-changing evolving self and the constant soul. We link physics and metaphysics, our sensory reality and Reality.

Dreams and sleep are essential for human health – to reorder, fit and connect day-to-day experiences and past memory, and enable our temporary life to be nourished by the soul’s light.

The enlightened being regards
all normal experiences as a
dream. Common dreams are
merely dreams within a dream.
