MEDITATION DEATH RELIGION   

The following are the Deli Lama's own opinions on subjects the he finds interesting, provacative, and at the core of life's mysteries.

Life is but an experience for our soul, to travel through this time period with the aid of the human form, and then to return to it's natural state, and to rejoice in infinite joy that abounds everywhere.

Don't take anything here, too seriously,
I'm just expressing my true thoughts, nothing more.

MEDITATION

    Om Shanti!


    From the beginning of time-we humans have wondered about who we are-how did we get here-is there a G*D-does he listen to me-how can I hear him?

    Although probably discovered earlier, the earliest pilgrims of Hinduism, (like Patanjali ) found that through "inner silence" one could feel the universe in one's "heart". One must quiet the constant thinking and chatter of the brain in order to relax and let the ego slip away, thus revealing one's true self ,and allowing the realities of ALL that there is-the one true reality-to be discovered.

    Today-meditation is used, by many, as a great tool for stress relief. The rejuvenation and peace that follows any meditation, may be the natural "DRUG" of the next millennium.

    My own experiences, for 4 years, meditating twice a day, for 20 to 30 minutes, helped alleviate many of my negative thoughts and feelings. More importantly for me, I realized, for the first time, that I am part of everything. That the whole universe resides within me-as it does for everything and everyone too!


DEATH

    DO YOU WANNA LIVE FOREVER?

    I have come to the conclusion that one of the unique emotions for us Humans is Fear. It's not only what keeps our soul from growing, but it is actually the tool used that helps us mature the most. For it is when we face our fears, take risks, and realize that we are always protected, that our advancement into the "soul kingdom" is the most accelerated.

    This is most evident in our own preoccupation and worries about our own mortality. Perhaps it is this knowing that this "physical life will end, at some unknown time, that pushes us to live life at the fullest (hopefully!). For if we were to know, that the afterlife ,and constant re-incarnation, were definite, many of us would become somewhat apathetic, while others would take unusually extreme risks. So it seems this "soul amnesia" has its purpose in the ever evolving soul.

    We are "soul", we are spirit, currently active participants in this Human Body, to experience our own maturity and growth in the physical, before eventually staying home permanently. We must master this unique opportunity, in which the soul needs to deal with mental, emotional, intellectual, physical, and egocentric demands and experiences, and find a cohesive balance, that prepares us for our eventual "permanent" destination.

    It has been said that Life is like a school, for a soul, needing to learn lessons, to make up for poor choices in previous lives. Whilst I find this to be some-what true, for me it is the opportunity to remember whom we are through are own creative forces. That as we realize we are unique extensions of the "infinite"-we begin to create with a "no-holds-bars" attitude, with perfect love, and perfect understanding!

    "Live your life as if there is no tomorrow, discover that it is in the giving ,that brings happiness,    someday you will meet your maker, and you will realize it is YOURSELF!"

RELIGION

    MANY PATHS-MANY MASTERS !

    As you might have guessed, Religion, their organizations, and the people behind them, are of top interest in my life. For me ,nothing is more fascinating than man's constant quest for knowledge, and explanation, in this realm: the constant seeking of is there GOD ,what is GOD, and what is God's Plan's for me, and humankind!

    It is apparent, since the dawning of man, each civilization has looked for explanations as to how "life" comes about. Is there a Ruler of the universe, is their a plan, is their a Force or Supreme BEING that conveys its desires for man??? Questions, and more questions. Early man looked at his environment, the sky, moon, sun, and stars, and noticed a regular pattern to most of life's events and happenings. This led man to believe that there was a governing Force guiding the world, and early man soon started forming ideologies in regard to these "unknown" forces.

    They saw the power of the SUN, the WIND, and the MOON, and the Roaring oceans. They saw the life-giver of Rain, clouds, and the screaming Thunder and angry lightning. And they saw the patterns in those shining objects in the night sky. These were their God's and Goddesses: and by paying homage and tribute to these Gods and Goddesses, did man start his relationship with the divine!

    Then around 4000-bce,it was time for man to know more. It was time to learn that there was a purpose to their existence, and that ONE guiding Force was behind all these forces. That it was time for man to understand their own nature, their place in the cosmos, and the ways in which mankind should learn to live better together in harmony.

    Authors note:
    I have always wondered-at this time in man's history, was there problems with the way mankind was living. It seemed that man lived with and respected Mother Earth. Things like stress, suicide, depression, were unknown to these peoples, yet GOD chooses this time to introduce itself. Was it just man's insistent curiosity that caused GOD to come to man at this time, or did GOD feel that mankind really needed guidance, or maybe GOD saw that man was ready for more.???Questions, and more Questions!!!
