The River Of Life -excerpt 2- who are we

You are not a lawyer!

You are not a doctor!

You are not a Christian!

You are not Muslim!

You are not a Hindu!

Let us try to understand what I mean.

We usually introduce ourselves or others by saying: “This is Dr. Robert. He is a lawyer”. Most of the time we all like to use labels and titles to describe who a person really is. 

From our early years of education, we start associating people with their position, their titles or status.  Slowly but surely, we then become conditioned and start to position ourselves in comparison to others.

We tend to respect people who have important positions, such as managers, C.E.Os, politicians, or heads of various organizations.

Every young boy or girl, every human being has a unique mind, brain, and heart, yet we are still very similar to any other human being.

Studying something in particular, acquiring a skill, working under a professional name, they all add to our ‘mind and intellect’. 

However, it is important not to let these things imprison you or make you feel afraid or intimidated by others.   


BREAK

Let’s take some time and try to really feel the meaning of my next words:

“I AM”.

Take a moment now to reflect on what it means to be complete.

Then you can go on and say: “I have studied X and practiced that profession as a career”. 

Outside my work, I simply “AM”. 

I look at my fellow human being with the same openness I had when I came out of the womb. 

You are not “Jad”, you are not any “one”, “title”, “persona”, or “follower”.

You simply ARE.

You can then continue the discussion with what you have studied and what you currently do (I studied medicine, I practice therapy, I pray to…etc).

This new perception will allow you to go deeper within yourself, detach yourself from titles, and allow yourself to reconnect with your core being – your pure self. 

Simply imagine it as if you would be wearing a robe that is called “a lawyer”, “a therapist”, or “an engineer”. It’s only a piece of garment!

Take it off when you’re not using it.

It will take a while for this shift to sink in but when it does, you will be in harmony with the river of life.
2. Where do you come from? 

Who are you?

From the moment the semen came into existence to this day when I am typing and you are reading this, I have been through a few miraculous changes. We often forget how amazing, magical, and spiritual these changes are.

However, if we keep on going in reverse, we will then reach a universal truth: 

We each come from our parents, our parents come from their parents, and this goes on and on until we are faced with the dilemma of Adam and Eve. If we keep going backwards, we will then see that it seems like it all comes from LIGHT. This fits in nicely with the Big Bang theory and many others. 

According to quantum physics, we know that the dissection of electrons will only lead us to LIGHT.

Everything is light! 

We are made of light!

You can’t be anything but a pure being coming from ONE SOURCE having a physical experience.

Many have used the phrase: ‘You are a spiritual being having a physical experience’, and it seems to resonate very well with people.

I’m sure most of you can understand why.

Now, let me ask you a question.

Is the little kid that you once were, that 5 year old playing outside in the garden – is he still you? Will you look the same when you are 80 years old?

Everything changes, therefore no one can define you according to your shape or appearance. Nothing is permanent.

But there must be something unchangeable, because you have known YOU since birth and throughout your life there was a constant notion of your “self”.

That is YOU.

You are the presence, the unchangeable, the one who can watch your body changing throughout years. The one who can observe your own thoughts, ideas and interactions. 

Once you start understanding this truth and stop identifying yourself with your body, your mind, your profession or the society you happen to live in – you will find your kingdom.

1. Introduction

Hello. 

Anybody there?

I know you are reading this, but that doesn’t mean that you are in this moment.

Now, I will ask you to breathe in deeply and relax your muscles. Do what you need to do to get yourself into a relaxed state of mind.

Are you relaxed?

Great. We are ready then. Switch off any mental chatter that may be lingering in your mind. 

You’re simply here with me, which is also you! 

I am you! Are there two people here, or is it only you? I guess you think that it’s only you! But actually, it is also me! 

Confused?

 Let’s set this aside for a minute.

Allow me to tell you about myself first.

I was born from a womb, hearing voices, not even recognizing that these are voices.

I saw shadows before my eyes, while not even knowing they were shadows. 

All I know is that they took away my happiness. All had been perfect: food, warmth, water, shelter, peacefulness. 

I was in Heaven!

One year later, I found out that the walking creatures were calling me “Jad”.

I had to answer back each time I heard that sound! It was unbearable at first, but then it started making me happy as these creatures were also comforting me.

A few years later, I began uttering sounds, words and phrases that had meaning. I began to understand how to deal with my parents and surroundings.

Let’s skip ahead to the future.

Finally, I had a religion! I also had a name and a personality, which I learned from my father mother, neighbors and relatives.

I had a nationality, a school and a great surprise as well:

“To know my politicians and my enemies”.

Everything was perfectly set up. I was the product and the product was now ready for society!

A few years passed and I sensed that something was not right. 

Some of the things that I have learned shocked and confused me.

I discovered that some people were against my beliefs. Many people had different religions and values. A lot of them had strange names. 

Some people were on my side, while others were against me. There was also jealousy and competition and … wait!

Isn’t this your story as well?

Back to you and I, the reader and the writer. Was I not different from you at the beginning? Or were we the same? 

That’s the story of each human being brought into this life, and that’s how our stories go.

But through all this “ready–made-product” which is called “me” or “my personality”, I have managed to find a deeper meaning through sounds and imagination that is music. I can assure you this was not imposed.

I discovered a higher truth, a passion for discovering life and the answers to the two questions: “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”.

My love for music and that invisible sensation of something intangible but still present, ignited in me a deeper desire to try to understand the vast universe and the purpose of life itself.

A journey of seeking, exploration, discovery, experiencing and traveling began (and way too much mental analysis!), until I finally said enough!

I have learned enough. It’s now time to un-learn and take my mind and myself back to that beautiful womb where it all started!

Chronic Pain

Dear Friends, and followers of my blog.

I would like to highlight what i discovered through my personal journey, about CHRONIC PAIN.
70% of that pain is mental and caused by Stress, anxiety, depression, fear, worry etc…
Which in turns affects our nervous system and our digestive system.

Once these 2 systems get affected u can expect a “domino effect” of countless symptoms and “indirect” illness or diseases.

30% of diseases and pain may come from external invadors such as toxins, bacteria, virus, or sever injuries/accidents  , or from weak genetics.

But fortunately most of the external factors can be healed in  big ratios!

The ones that cannot be healed easily and accompanies us for most of our lives are “self created DIS-“EASE”.

Something constantly stayed long enough… irritating our minds/thoughts/behaviour/emotions to a degree that it became physical.

But it also can be healed, it needs more will, diligence, and re programming of your whole system.

As the nervous system and digestive can be triggered easily from our minds, one should always start fixing his path to healing from the source it self, IN PARALLEL with re establishing a great nutritional program, in case his aches were mostly reflecting in his belly area( constipation, gerd, colitis,abdominal pains, etc…)
Or IN PARALLEL with a healty lower and upper back therapies.
Cause that s also one of the most areas affected by STRESS/THOUGHTS.

When i work with my clients as a life, health and stress coach.
1-I make sure my clients were clinically diagnosed and have nothing serious. (Yet…)
2-as a nutrition consultant I make sure their system is detoxed ,because an unhealthy digestive system or a malfunctioning one cannot allow any mental peace.   Brain and guts are linked more than we can imagine.
3-unleashing negative emotions, by talk, therapy, mental exercices is crucial.
4-re inserting thoughts , or re training our mind to build Healthy thinking patterns, now can take it s role.
5-a minor or a major physical program is a must to become HUMAN again.

6-while the clients starts getting results, then it s necessary to plan for goals and re fix their life plans,  as this will move positively their healing process.

7-it s time for each according to his religion or spiritual practise to start surrendering to God, life, existence…
It s surrendering and having faith in the universe..not begging from a magician. (That ‘s why most people who pray without realising what life it self gave them as tools to heal, won’t allow them to reach efficient results)

It seems much, but it s not!
It s a progressive way to get rid once and for all from all chronic pain.
It is MUCH if the pain stays for decades!.

But a passion to embrace life, deserves true healing.

Blessings to all!

The Rise Of meditation, yogis & Buddhist

Dear all,

Friends and followers,

In an era and age, where chaos is the leading word! Established religions as Islam and Christianity are trying to rival again to gather more people.

(Unfortunately yeah, acting both  as parties having elections!)

It seems both have conflicts within them selves, even though predominately Islam has more challenges to prove to the world that it’s not a religion of terrorism,

The wise among the sects are the one who should find a way to stop Isis!

Christianity is probably still stable “in numbers” and  growing or trying to re form with the new pope.

there is 2 fundamentals question rising in these 2 majors religions.

what are they teaching on the level of the individual? seems to me, numbers, politics, countries, repartition of social worldly stuff are taking advantage on spiritual seeking.

I’m not generalizing, i agree there are many people , priests, cheikh’s teaching peace, love, and compassion

but that’s the problem.  WE TEACH! WE SPEAK!

how do we expect a mind in 2015-2016 to listen when the fast past of life has become 20 times faster than older generation, who can listen nowadays!!??

On the other hand, we are seeing a rise, in meditation, in that spreading word, that use to be scary for most, and also the word “yoga”, “Zen”,”Buddhism” are not negative anymore.

Let me try to elaborate little bit more.

these religion/philosophies, i call them philosophies too because they are inclusive!, they don’t teach you “become with us, or you’re doomed to hell”

that’s a plus for them nowadays!, they don’t have rules for race, colors, and cultures.

they focus on the individual how to grow in spirituality, “spirituality is not a woo-woo word”

every religion started basically by spirituality , isn’t the goal of every Christian to become close to god and more spiritual? for Islam too?

My simple question is :

An hour on Sunday, is it enough to make us close to god or inner peace?

We’re ending up talking about Christian-politics all day on TV!

Is preaching in mosques and unfortunately lot of them about killing Jews and infidels  or others, defensiveness, cause lot of them feel targeted, i do understand that, (again i’m not generalizing, but it’s very common in the middle east)

so in what way we are expecting to advance??

Buddhism, yoga, Zen, and some other eastern traditions, they get along as well, and they know that the source is one!

some call it tao, some nirvana, some samadhi, whatever.

they teach about finding your own way, and now here is their best point!

THEY TEACH {{HOW!!! TO PRACTICE!!!}}

they invite persons on HOW to take care of the body HOW to breath HOW to control emotions HOW to reach a higher state, daily practices , and I’m not talking about their god or deity devotion, it’s their right, but even their deity are not mandatory as an exam to pass hell or heaven!

the human being of 2015-2016 requires peace, aloneness, knowing what love is, re gaining his nature, his essence in being spiritual.

Christian mystics if joined on one table with Buddhist and Zen they would agree 100% , as St Therese of Avilla, St john of the cross, St Francis.

Or in Early sufism as Abd al-Qadr al-Jilani ,Ahmed al-Rifa’i, others..

Sufism also would agree 100%

but The political-religious parties, and their surface shallow talk about Islamic and Christianity teaching will lead nowhere, and let’s look around us!!

more wars, more quarrels, more conflicts!!!

For the one who consider meditation or other eastern philosophies scary! Search  in your own religion, in your mystics, find the true meaning.

YOU CANNOT FIND GOD IN THE MASS ALONE. god is inside, he/she is not separate from YOU.

look at the shared common ground in between all religion and practices

It’s the practice of silence!! and seeking inwardly! or letting go!

keep doing it!

Don’t get caught up in religion elections, and which numbers of what sect will get more votes!

The eastern were there, before us, and they are coming back, not by force, but by simple facts! and tools!

Whoever you are, whatever you do, whatever your belief is,

get silent daily for couple of min, dig into your roots of religions

even atheist have common ground in silence and accepting.

Peace and love
