Living with mental stability...


In dealing with clients, I have come across this question often. If you are not going to see to it that your life is filled with more meaningful activities than slogging away at a job – and also allowing your self sufficient mental recuperation – then Spirit will see to it that you get to rest the hard way; stick your bum in bed with a stuffy nose and a body that feels flabbier than a punctured wine skin.
Honestly, though, it is of vital benefit to notably include in our busy lives actual activities that have nothing to do with our work life – and by activities I mean things like Yoga, meditation/meditation groups, cycling groups, book clubs, creative writing, getting holistic treatments, etc..; that is why hobbies are so beneficial. Something meaningful that occupies your mind with creative thoughts. And then – get enough rest! Meaning those things that require you to do nothing. Everyone needs time to do absolutely nothing, but sleep late, watch movies and snack in bed.
And one really needs to do this. Avoid learning it the hard way. Also don’t try and do everything all the time –
The question is thus: Do you own your own life? If the meaning of life lies in the meaning you give it – then how do we realise this? The answer is to be an altruist.

- I have decided to approach this particular question and subject of how to attain mental stability in living life within the next several Lilac Master e-mails, and will discuss topics such as: Altruism, Spiritual Mastery, The Essence of Love, Inner Peace, Truth and Complete… or Complacent Wisdom: -


Altruism

According to the Wikipedia website: “Altruism is selfless concern for the welfare of others. It is a traditional virtue in many cultures, and central to many religious traditions. In English, this idea was often described as the Golden rule of ethics. Some newer philosophies such as egoism have criticized the concept, with writers such as Nietzsche arguing that there is no moral obligation to help others.
Altruism can be distinguished from a feeling of loyalty and duty. Altruism focuses on a motivation to help others or a want to do good without reward, while duty focuses on a moral obligation towards a specific individual (for example, God, a king), a specific organization (for example, a government), or an abstract concept (for example, patriotism etc). Some individuals may feel both altruism and duty, while others may not. Pure altruism is giving without regard to reward or the benefits of recognition.
The concept has a long history in philosophical and ethical thought, and has more recently become a topic for psychologists, sociologists, evolutionary biologists, and ethologists. While ideas about altruism from one field can have an impact on the other fields, the different methods and focuses of these fields lead to different perspectives on altruism.”
To be the master of your own thought…
… is to be a spiritual master.
A spiritual master’s life purpose is to guide evolution through outstanding leadership qualities as human life continues to evolve through the progressive stages of enlightenment. This is to liken it to the leadership of a director of a movie, to guide from behind the scenes where the decisions leading to the overall design are made.
Spiritual masters do not function well under dominant direction for long and also realise that to achieve their potential, they will need a first-rate education; continuously seeking to better themselves and to quench their immense thirst for knowledge. Their fast rate of learning is little short of amazing and they are regularly called upon for advice and/or guidance.

A prominent trait of a spiritual master is their apparent lack of emotion as they regard emotional control as fundamental to their purpose. In truth they are highly sensitive and intuitive people in combination with a powerful spiritual awareness. They are concerned with human welfare and have a huge capacity for responsibility.
Those who do not recognise their own strengths are drawn to a singularly materialistic environment in an obsessive way, thus becoming unhappy, lonely and aloof. When negative, incredible depression is the result.

It is highly recommended that a spiritual master ensure a life of balance between work and pleasure as their considerable aptitude for work can lead to becoming an overachiever. Artistic hobbies in modules such as singing, dancing, writing, painting, and the like will enhance expression and lead to emotional relaxation. To a spiritual master, learning is a life-long pursuit.

Someone who has truly achieved spiritual mastery will, generally, excel at whatever they attempt, be it in any business or cultural organisation. They also have the most responsibility to humanity.






This world of ours is in yearning for a whole lot of love -
..and unconditional love is the only thing that a spiritual master teaches.
Thus, be open to knowing everything, but believe nothing.


That is it for now –
Until next time…

Conscious Power - ..what you think, do and feel is directly an indication of who you are..


There are only two modes of mental power – the conscious and the unconscious. The question is which one you allow to create your mental perception. One might be likely to say that the ‘unconscious’ is supposed to create your reality, but be careful here – one first needs to consciously teach the mind to create before it can then become unconscious in the use of creating your reality, as ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which we cease to depend upon the conscious mind. We forget that we tend to create an enormous amount of negativity in our lives – just through thinking negative thoughts. How often do you think up destructive thoughts about people? imagining a possible negative scenario and the argument(s) you would then face and what you would say? imagined and embellishing thought after or during watching violent TV programs and the like? etc. The value of the subconscious lies in its irreplaceable function to warn us of danger, its inner sense of guidance, the automatic control of the vital bodily processes and its importance as the seat of memory; it, however, does not have the ability to discriminate or reason, as does the conscious mind.
The conscious mind is thus ‘reasoning will’ and the subconscious ‘instinctive desire’.
What am I getting at? to intend the power of the mind to use the Law of Attraction consciously as a tool in its creation of your tangible world. I think the reason that so many people have not understood this natural law is, because of the fact that generating negative though also produced such in reality – so much so that it either negates your positive thoughts or, in most cases, completely overwhelms and replaces them. ONE HAS TO CONSTANTLY STIVE TO BE POSITIVE AND REJECT ALL NEGATIVE THOUGHT – whether that is about the petrol price increasing or not getting something right from the word ‘go’ in practice - or thought.
By the Law of Attraction we really are what we think, do and feel – and it is thus very literally a direct indication of whom we are.

In this light, one also needs to realise that tension will only lead to mental unrest and feeble mental activity, which produces worry, fear and anxiety. To be able to use conscious mental power, relaxation is a priority, for without a relaxed and awake mind, conscious creation is not possible. Make this a daily exercise – to relax the mind; for conscious power can only be attained if one practices it - like anything else.
Our greatest power, as humans, lies in the ability to think, but not many people know how to think constructively and thus mainly achieve only indifferent results. When you allow your thoughts to dwell on self-serving purposes, the mind remains underdeveloped. A mature mind develops through practising silence and it comes to understand that the crux of defeat is found in every selfish thought.
Also bear in mind that one can only think for oneself and create for your self. Attempting to create for another and/or influencing another’s mind to what you deem appropriate will only lead to your own eventual unhinging of mental power over your own life.

Also remember that over-work, over-play or over-bodily activity of any kind produces mental apathy and stagnation in the realisation of conscious power. When we are still, we can think – and correct thought is the secret of all attainment.

Physical stillness is the first step to self-control and self-mastery.

“Matter is powerless, passive, inert. Mind is force, energy, power. Mind shapes and controls matter. Every form which matter takes is but the expression of some pre-existing thought.
But thought works no magic transformation; it obeys natural laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually upon the whole of your environment.”
