All changes start in the mind. SAN practices train the mind to cultivate awareness. As you grow in self awareness, you will be able to understand why you do what you do, and feel what you feel. The wisdom Gurus explain that one should approach life in sati-samadhi-panna attitude (awareness-attention-wisdom), therefore always act from the place of awareness. Knowing who you are, what you want, and why you want it (intention and reason), gives opportunity and freedom to change things you want to change about yourself, solves difficult problems with clarity of mind, and enables you to produce conscious thoughts and actions to create the life you want.
We are not human beings in search of a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. That’s why they say we are human beings, not human doings. It is through our physical experiences, we can learn about love, compassion and forgiveness. While our spirits is forever in oneness with the Source, our minds can be easily distracted by business, stressors and modern life’s fast paced technologies. Hectic lives and external noise tend to make us deaf to listen to the Well-Being Voice within us. We tend to move away from our true essence. Prolonged being in such situation often results in chronic state of fear and insecurity (worries, anxious, angry, over sensitive, addicted to negative-critical-judgmental thinking, etc), which lead to conflict, imbalance, dis-order and dis-ease.
But still, all we do is add doing to doing and continue to play the blame games as a reason to justify our sufferings, and without we realize it, we continue to get ‘caught up’ in our internal dramas resulting from unresolved emotional issues, rather than to accept taking personal responsibility to be the best version of us.
Wellness life starts in the mind. Who would know the best when you need to find what’s going on in you? Why you have not achieved or been in the situation that you would like to be? You!
Only when you take time to be silent in sincere intention to come home to yourself, you can live from the place of oneness while authentically appreciating the beauty of contrast and the delight of triumph over adversity and challenges. This is not something that you can achieve by doing.
