I Am A Buddha
Sometimes ago I was wondering around the town with no direction and purpose. Soon I realized that I was being drawn into a temple where a talk was going on. Just right after the talk finished, which to be frank, I didn't get a single message from it;
“You are a Buddha, when you say you are,” a Zen Master told me.
So am I a Buddha?
I’ve not yet enlightened but according to the master, I am, as soon as I say that I am.
Was this a joke or what?
Those masters who have been meditating under the trees and in the caves for ages even have not reached enlightenment, but I can as soon as I pronounce that I’m a Buddha (the highest state of enlightenment if you do not know)?
So what that’s really mean? Well, that's just a metaphor.
One of the greatest tools that we as human possesses which as simple as it can be and also as complicated as it can be is not other than language. It is a tool for human communication and without it, I doubt that the world would have evolved as what we are observing now.
However, I want to point out that there’s nothing good or bad for what has or going to happen to the world, unless the way we perceive it. The world is egoless, it does not judge or differentiate. It is all that it could be, nothing more and nothing less.
Back to the point, communication does not literally mean an interaction that happens between two people. It could be internally, a way that we communicate with ourselves, such as you might speak to yourself as, “I’m good at this,” “This wouldn’t be hard” or “My life sucks.”
Internal communication is a way that we tell ourselves of how our world would or could be although it doesn’t necessary have to be the way that we say it. It’s just a description that we plaster it - It’s a choice.
The Power of Words
However, do not underestimate the power of words. What you speak becomes your reality because words become flesh. You are made up of words that you speak all the time. If you don’t believe this, just look around you, how’s the people around you are behaving, the environment that you always indulging in, the scene that you could always observe. Take notice these, they are the reflections of your internal world.
Do you call these things coincidences?
Well, you might if you insist.
The truth is all those things that are happening around you are just the projections from the deeper side of you and which you might not even know it’s existence. And the scary part is most of us live our lives on the cognitive level, the part of which we use to direct our daily lives and ignore that part that create, the unconscious level.
This level of unconscious is the part that creates 90 percent of our reality. It seeks and creates whatever that we pass on it, be it good or bad because just like the universe, it makes no judgment.
Every word that we speak is a prayer that’s coming into manifestation in the metaphor that we call time and moving into metaphysics, a state known as creation with intent. A state where we direct the force of creation with an object in mind. If you would realize this then the power of creation lies in your hands and not with the circumstances, as what Tony Robbins says, "It’s not what happens, it’s what we do with what happens."
The power of choice and creation lies beneath you, if you choose to acknowledge it.
So you are indeed a Christ or a Buddha if you say that you are. But that’s could only be achieved if you know the true meaning of becoming an enlightened one but you must do it with a sincere heart, else you become one that goes nowhere.
"All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought,
happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. "
