Cosmic Patterns and Mind Shift
If you look closely you will notice that everything in this Universe, from micro to macrocosm, follows a set pattern. Since we are a part of this infinite and seemingly endless cosmic structure, our lives are also governed by the same patterns. These patterns manifest in all aspects of our existence, be it relationships, material success, attitude towards people and life in general, our strengths and weaknesses, emotional and spiritual quotient, and the like. We keep following our life path unaware of these latent patterns that have the potential of making this life a garden of roses or a living Hell. Like it or not, these patterns are largely responsible for our success or debacle as the case may be. How many times have you met a man, who knows that his aggressive behavior is widening the rift between him and his family, but still can’t control his temper? Haven’t you ever met a woman who works a double shift and goes back home only to subject herself to spousal abuse? Not to forget those who keep struggling with their addictions despite knowing how it’s going to end for them. Or those who live in financial crisis for their entire lives? Most people live their lives caught up in a pattern without realizing the presence of one, in their lives. We all need to set ourselves free from these blood sucking patterns and the only way to do this is by making a ‘Paradigm shift’ in our lives. The question is how to make that happen.
Breaking these Patterns
Interestingly, these patterns, more often than not, follow us from one life to the other. They create different set of situations for us, bind us in relationships with people who might be complete strangers to us or even those who we, intuitively, know from our past lives. Why do we get embroiled in similar situations, life after life? Why do we suffer so much when the purpose of human life is to be happy and be one with the Creator? The only plausible explanation behind human reincarnation seems to be that Universe gives us repeated chances to break this cycle once for all. Once we do it, we free ourselves from the painful process of living those repetitive patterns over and over again. It’s like breaking the loop that makes us live one painful memory, day after day. The moment we use our sword of courage and determination to cut through these spider-web-like patterns, our misery will disappear like it never existed, for a simple reason that something that is an illusion (not real) can never exist in the first place. Remember, your life is only an illusory situation created to test your mettle. Don’t give up. Keep fighting till you succeed in your ‘soul’ purpose. Reincarnations or rebirths should be seen as precious opportunities given to us for putting an end to these patterns and change the course of our lives for the better.
Break Free – Align yourself with Higher Energy
How do you know that you are caught up in a pattern? The road to freedom starts from the moment you know instinctively that you need to break away from some situation. It’s your inner voice that guides you all along. Never resist or stop paying heed to that feeble voice. We already have too much of noise overload, inside and outside of us. The challenge is to silence the chaotic mind and let the feeble inner voice gain strength gradually. It’s not easy for everyone to rely on ones instinct and take the plunge in unknown waters. One has to have an incredibly high spiritual quotient and the only way to increase this quotient is by aligning the physical and spirit body with Higher Self which, happens to be the source of cosmic energy. Once the alignment or unison occurs, an individual opens up to receive the blissful cosmic energy and cosmic messages. It’s like fine tuning your radio station to catch the desired frequency.
Get ready for the Paradigm Shift
You must have heard many times that success begins where your comfort zone ends. I endorse the veracity of this statement. You surely need to push your limits to achieve success on any front and that applies to breaking the set patterns as well. Is it possible? Is it difficult? Well, it is indeed possible but may not be easy without mental stability, spiritual maturity, and above all, a burning desire to make it happen. Breaking away from the ‘Matrix’ and seeing yourself for who you actually are, is not a child’s play. It needs lot of discipline and determination. Needless to mention that the purity of intent, good deeds, charity and spiritual practices add fuel to the fire you kindle. Beware of the side effects though. As you keep walking the spiritual path, you might desist from hoarding material wealth, question your own ‘gathered knowledge’, love to live a simple and honest life and may even think of giving shelter to a homeless. Sounds crazy? This happens for real when you channel cosmic light in to your whole being. You become a conduit for higher energy and your perception of life changes dramatically.
This is where the ‘paradigm shift’ occurs that finally leads to freedom from suffering, emotional turmoil, painful memories, baseless fears, insecurity and to crown all, freedom from the cycle of birth and death.
