The mind says: “ if “my free will” is rubbish, then I am predestined, I am a puppet of destiny… That is sad!!”
🙂 That “I” does not exist. Who is predestined then?
Until you realize and experience, “No-I” you cannot possibly understand anything but “I.”
“I am God. I am a son of God. I am an angel. I am wealthy. I am beautiful. I am ….” That makes up your society, your religion, your language, your ideology.
Some readers send their questions, but they cannot understand that the writer “avyakt7” does not exist anymore. Ahnanda cannot answer those questions, for those questions are set up for a particular answer in a particular consciousness.
For instance, someone asked about the relationship of beauty and lust and then the difference between lust and greed. “I want to know” the reader said.
Your consciousness is caught up with language. It will not do anything to you, to know the difference or relationship of 2 words. See those things in yourself. Understand them in yourself. Let go of your mind’s talk to observe.
For some readers, lust is something ugly, something ”bad.”
For some, lust is something to avoid, to reject, to repress.
However the same energy of lust, is the one transforming into compassion (good feelings and good wishes) like day transforms into night.
Some want to have day at all times and reject night. That is called an ideal. Ideals are illusions.
John is lustful with a woman. Is that lust going away if John decides to change his “behavior”? Is that lust going away if John represses his lust? If he knows the difference between lust and greed or the relationship of lust and beauty?
Everything John DOES will be a cover up.
Observe it. Become aware of it in the moment that it appears. This is not a mental: “Aha! This is lust… I will observe it!” That will not work, that is the mind. To observe means to feel everything without trying to escape, without trying to act on it, without judgment or labeling. Experience the triggers, experience how it appears… and how it disappears. But most don’t experience that because there is rejection and guilt in them. Then it stays stuck, it becomes a trauma.
Learn to let go. If we learn to control, we cannot observe.
Some minds will only keep one side of the coin as the “good one,” but yet a coin needs both sides to be a coin.
Get out of the mind, the labels, the judgments and merely observe, be aware of the continuous change, be empty.
It is that emptiness what some call love, others compassion, others God and yet others… are afraid of it. Different perceptions. Different stories. 🙂
The starting point of our inner search for meaning in life, could be located into the “black or white” mentality.
Our consciousness may be able to see a “straight” line separating “good” and “bad.” 🙂
At that point the dichotomy of God and the Devil (Maya, illusion) will be needed to reinforce that consciousness.
As our consciousness changes its location, we may be able to see “more” than before or just plain “different.”
It is in that “new” location, when appreciation of differences on ways of doing things or understanding coming from “others,” appears.
That is the consciousness of acceptance or openness.
This blog illustrates that journey through many articles in it.
Once the baby is ready to walk with his own 2 feet, the crib of protection, which at one time was very helpful, becomes an obstacle in learning how to walk.
The need of the baby to walk around may be suppressed, it may be postponed; but eventually it becomes a matter of living or dying…and when life palpitates in our hearts with a tremendous force, the crib is no more.
When that change, that force to walk is coming out of a different consciousness, there is no pain, anger or feeling of guilt when leaving “the crib.” It is so obvious, as when we go from high school into college…
A friend of mine likes to send emails with thoughts and quotes that could elevate someone’s consciousness. One day, I read a quote from one of his emails that resonated tremendously with me. I couldn’t help but to search more about the author of that quote.
It was signed: “Hua Hu Ching.”
It was a book not an author.
The book is called the “unknown teachings of Lao Tzu.” However, I could see that this style of conveying depth is not Lao Tzu’s as in the “Tao Te Ching.”
We could go into details as to how the writings got there, but it is not necessary. The writings are there and Avyakt7 felt almost as if he was the writer of that book.
Some readers have expressed to me that this blog: “puts their own thoughts into words.”
That is how I felt with the “Hua Hu Ching.”
It was not only how succinct and deep the Hua Hu Ching is, but I have experienced as well those things in my own life.
Depth is the thing that entices Avyakt7 every time.
This book may not be understood intellectually by going literally into the words. It is a translation, and I would recommend to “feel it” first. If the words align with our consciousness and we could find experiences in our own life to give meaning to the words in that book, then we may feel that this book could allow us to “see” different things by being a reflection of our state of consciousness.
The book uses the term “Tao.” That word is not a religion (Although some may make it as a dogmatic religion.) It is Universal consciousness which binds all of us together. It is the “way of things” also known as Life, the Totality…
The book is not for everyone as everybody enjoys a different consciousness, but I thought about sharing this copy (while supplies last 🙂 )I found on the Internet; with those who have been following this blog for the last 2 years now.
You may appreciate this book, as I have done. (Spanish Version here)
Brain Walker is the translator of this book. He has done a great job in my view.
Avyakt7 feels ready to dissolve his role as every “life walker” must dissolve theirs and go on in his or her journey; by leaving the prints of their own steps in the trails of life.
Life is the journey. Enjoy the journey! 🙂

The time has arrived to take a “brief” week off… 🙂
I should be back “on line” the 18 or 19th of June.
In the meantime, there are a couple of videos via Youtube that Avyakt7 would like to share.
The address of the channel is here:
The “playlist” with the videos I’d like to share are here (under Spirituality)
These brief videos are just a small compilation of everything being shred in the blog. If you would like to know when a video appears, just subscribe to that channel.
Note: These videos are not meant to teach anything to anyone. They are just the expression of Avyakt7 based on his own experience, in his path as a spiritual walker.
Hope you enjoy them!
Will see you in a week! 🙂
“Precious Pearl” has been the “in-house-poet,” in this blog. Bringing beauty in words and very neat rhymes… 🙂 Precious Pearl has decided to move on and before doing that, she has agreed to have a brief interview…
Enjoy it… and wish her the best in her new endeavors! 🙂
We can believe in whatever we want. That does not mean that it is the “truth.”
It may be “our” truth, but please realize that it could change at any time. We could be stubborn, but that is our issue. We have the right to be stubborn… and the consequences as well.
As a matter of fact, as our consciousness changes, so our understanding will change.
We are never the same. Ever. We are always changing, always evolving, always becoming….Propelled by the quality of our feelings, which in turn become our actions.
If we change our actions but we do not change our feelings, we will be acting as repressed individual.
We could look “honorable” under the eyes of others, but we will be burning inside. Ready to explode at any time.
There is no activity, which is “pure or impure” in the “movie of life.” Unless we believe otherwise.
It is just the feelings that we have about that activity which makes things ugly or beautiful.
Love between human beings is beautiful but not so much when our feelings are “ugly,” when that “love” is based on neediness, when it is just about expectations.
A greedy person cannot know what love is.
That greed is not just about money or power, but there is greed in our ideas about becoming someone “special,” an angel or a saint or a deity. That is, our life will be focused on “achieving something” in the future based on an ideal, forgetting about living life in the present, where our feelings reside. The now.
Let things happen uncalled, as they have to happen without trying to control the outcome. That ego driven self who thinks that spirituality is like going to school and earning a grade when you “study more,” is a self-deception. There is no homework to achieve. It happens… all by itself, when you relax, enjoy and allow your “pure” feelings to blossom.
Empty yourself so there is no “self” to adore or to support, so you can surrender to life, be part of that totality without trying to become “someone.”
That “trying” is just the game of an egotistical mind. We will change by itself… We just need to look at our feelings so they direct the changes in us. It is cause and effect. It is not something that appears from just this life. We are eternal.
If we believe in God. That is great! We are never alone. We live in relationship. If you believe that God will help you just because you joined a religion, you are deceiving yourself. In life, you can only get what you deserve. You earn that help. How?
Through your “pure” feelings, which became actions at one point. Those activities became the “law of karma.” The origin is in your feelings.
You may misunderstand my words. Beware of that.
That is because unless you have experienced what I am trying to convey through limited words, you will not understand. That is, you will interpret these things according to what you know. According to your consciousness. That is how nothing written or spoken could contain truth. It is just a perception, adulterated by language and limited consciousness.
That is why Avyakt7 does not teach anything. He only shares his experiences, realizations and such in this blog.
You are free to read them or not. Free to interpret them as you wish.
There is no expectation in this “game.”
Hopefully you will enjoy this “game.”! 🙂
Time does not exist, that is why is “good” to share about the cycle of time.
