5 Reasons Why I Stopped Watching TV

tvedited
I used to watch TV almost daily. As soon as I got home from university or work, I would turn the TV on and leave it to do its thing on the background. I am even ashamed to say I had a cable subscription.

There was no chance of stillness within me, there was no glimpse of ever relaxing my consciousness and subconscious with all the racket going on at the TV programs.

Stopping watching TV was one of the best breakthroughs I have done for myself and in consequence I was able to start on the path that leads to awareness, free thinking, consciousness etc.

It is actually the easiest way to become a better person in every aspect of your life.
No TV – and you start asking yourself questions during your free time.

Here are the 5 Reasons Why I Stopped Watching TV:

3 Primary Reasons for Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness

depressioneditedI remember a day. The day that I took the decision to move away and give up everything.
Job, girlfriend, friends. Everything.
The following period was a time of Ignorance, Sense of Loss of “my possessions” and eventually hate towards the things I, personally and voluntary, gave up.

The levels of Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness peaked record levels and I soon plunged into the darkness and never-ending abyss of depression.

These negative and conflicting emotions that govern the lives of most of us have long since roamed the lands of earth, created a vicious circle for dissatisfaction and unhappiness.

These 3 poisons, how the Buddhist like to call it, go hand in hand and will do their “best” to bring you down.

The 3 negative emotions I am about to share with you are so common that you are probably being influence by them as you are reading my article. Hell! I am while writing this article.

What happens when one can detach himself from emotions and be the observant? Total bliss happens.

Desiderata – Or How to Have a Balanced Life

have-a-balanced-lifeMost of us wonder how to have a balanced life.
Life is like a Harp. It is composed of strings hooked up to a frame.
You can think of these strings as the elements that make your life full, complete, just as each string makes the harp a harmonious musical instrument.

You have to tune each of the strings in order to have a harp which sounds harmoniously when you play it.
Same with the important elements in your life. It is extremely important to work on and with the elements which govern your life, if you want to live harmoniously, a soul which sings to you in the most beautiful way possible.

These elements that you plan on tuning can be the following: Relationships, Career, Passions, Hobbies, Money, Friends, Reading, Travelling, Learning, Understanding, Being Spiritual, Thinking outside of the box, Being Aware, Nutrition, Healthy Life&Style etc. You get the point. Some of them are directly presented on Interview with Your Consciousness.

If you want to have a balanced life

Birdman and the Ego

1213A rainy autumn evening in London, with leaves all over the sidewalk and people in their cars rushing through the rain towards their homes to sit down and sip a warm cup of tea. The tension grows while they await for the traffic light to become green – the colour which will grant them free and unconstrained access towards that final warm destination.

In spite of it all, I decided to leave my house and drive towards the city centre. What better night in London then a rainy one where you can enjoy the company of friends at an old-school cinema where Jack the Ripper roamed ages ago – Whitechapel.

All I Am Is A Cacophony of Memetic Engineering

engineerfacebookEverything that composes that which I believe myself to be;
a cacophony of memetic imagery;
archetypes, conditioning, programming;
of words, utterances and sounds;
vibrations and frequencies;
a dazzling array of hues and variations of light –
All of these things are distractions;
A lotus eater machine designed to capture my attention;
stealing my focus away towards some grand, fascinating illusion.

Daily Practices for a Spiritual Life

copypicc

A great philosopher once said: “The endeavour to persist in its own being is the essence of the individual thing.” But when the day comes that the mind and body will be separated… what will happen to the soul?

As promised in my previous article, The Spiritual Path in Modern Times, I have gathered and put together a list of essential daily practices for a Spiritual Life to come in handy in these crazy yet interesting times we are living in.

There is no need to crowd your mind up by trying to incorporate all of them at the same time in your day to day life.
Start with a few, then slowly add more from the list and eventually you will be able to alternate these practices to give you the best combination for the best results.

These are gathered from various Buddhist and Spiritual books with the aim of making every living situation part of your spiritual practice.

You can be living the spiritual practice, instead of just doing it by following the next list of “to-do” activities, with details on how to do them easily found on Interview with Your Consciousness articles:

From the Earth to the Moon

EarthmooneditedI remember a sunny day last summer when I was sitting down in a cold breeze by River Thames and I was reading ” From the Earth to the Moon ” by Jules Verne.
While surfing through the pages and quenching my thirst for words, a slim but tall silhouette took shape right in front of my eyes. It was a young girl, taking her young as well dog for a walk.

A certain hesitation was betrayed by her body language but nevertheless she sat down next to me and pretended as if she was looking after something in the far horizon.

“You will have to be more convincing than that if you are going to pretend you are ignoring me.” – I said.

She smiled and with her long and delicate arm held the leash of her puppy dog who was becoming impatient and wanted to run.
With another hesitant voice, she murmured something: “From the Earth to the Moon” – brings back old memories – last year of university you know!

She continued: “How is it that you can sit here alone and not get bored? Yes I know you are reading, but still?”

“I could sit in my room and do the same sort of activity but then again I wouldn’t enjoy the sun at all and as you can see, I am not sitting alone anymore!”
Waving off as if she didn’t even hear my last remark, she couldn’t help herself but giggle.

“Michele!” – she said with a decisive voice this time.

5 Reasons Why You Should Travel and Live Abroad

Traveling1edited122

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”
– anonymous

There are not enough words to emphasize the reasons why you should travel, alas I can shed light on some of the hands-down most important aspects that changed my life.
I can say that for me, personally, living abroad offered me the chance to see the world differently.
It changed me from a boy who was living his life in total unawareness of what was going on around him, into a man that can make conscious decisions and see things for more than what they seem to be.
Travelling turned my life around 180 degrees and with this new perspective, I soon started to detach myself from things and people which were dragging me down, and bring into my life only positive and compatible situations, people or opportunities – compatible with my continuous evolutionary path. (and I am not referring to Charles Drawing’s evolution, mind you).

Here are the 5 reasons, as promised:

1. The Reset Function of Our Brain

It is related to how our brain functions.

When you go abroad and start to live a different life style, see and feel different ways of thinking or adapt to different situations which are required of you to do, your brain ends up “flipping”.

The Spiritual Path in Modern Times

meddd

What did the Dalai Lama say to the New York hot dog vendor?
“Make me one with everything.”

In a world where every second counts in order to either make money, consume something or stare at your phone, you find yourself wondering what is all of this for? Is this true happiness or am I just painting a rotten wall for the time being?

How many of you have ever wondered what does it take to attain a certain state which grants you constant and deep happiness, makes you less prone to outside suffering and allows you to realise we are all part of something bigger?

Many dwell on the perfect situation where they can start living the life the way it was meant to. The life which follows the spiritual path.

However, we all live in a perpetual active world around us where things always poke at us and take all of our time.
This would surely make one beg the question:

What is Consciousness ?

Lucid 1255Dreams

“Consciousness is that one element which makes us all different one from another.
It is that which makes one ignorant, opened minded, hater of life or embracer of happiness.”
                                                                                                                  Vlad

The first thing that comes into mind when thinking about Consciousness is the state of being Conscious. Being aware of the environment around you, of the air that you breathe, the taste of the food that you eat or the sounds that you hear; listening to your inner voice and having a profound understanding for your interlocutor. Or just simply: being aware of yourself.

What is consciousness more exactly?

Consciousness however, relates to all of the above – and it embodies a general personal state of being. You could consider

Media: The Good and The Bad. Informing or Brainwashing?

1_1

"The people will believe what the media tells them they believe" - George Orwell

Media has been a part of our daily lives for a very long time. Media offers the possibility of informing people or of brainwashing them.
It has probably been around for thousands of years since the invention of writing.
Media was a way for people to relate to an event, news, a new disease or an important person getting married – from ancient Babylon until present.

Its usefulness has been proved many times over, times in which people were kept out of the dark and up to date with what was going on around their tribe, village or city.

As time passed by

8 Must-Follow Man Rules

spartacus22

“As a man acts, so does he become. As a man’s desire is, so is his destiny” – pre-Christian Hindu text.

In today’s society where men keep on forgetting what a man is, does and aspires to be, it is crucial to keep straight on the path of manliness even if you are surrounded by hairy sexually undetermined dudes.

It is to no surprise that to some, what I am about to tell you might be something unheard of before, weird and even outrageous.

As described in Introduction to the Seduction chapter, I have taken the first steps in reminding a few points of what it takes to Be a Man!

Without any further ado, I give you:

1. Take Breaks to Find Yourself

The Buddha said: “We are what we think. All that we are, arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world”.

Seduction – The Interaction Between Female and Male Polarities

Yin Yang 2

At the centre of the extreme duality interaction between female and male polarities (yin and yang) there is wholeness, completion and satisfaction with yourself and the universe. Destroy this communion and you have the opposite – chaos.

It may come to no surprise to some of you that we will also analyse all the branches of seduction, but make no mistake – besides sharing different points of view, techniques and stories, the main focus will be to discover what has happened in the past 50-100 years that made men and women alike have difficulties in doing something that we were biologically engineered to know and act accordingly and get the man/woman that we wanted, since homo sapiens emerged thousands of years ago.

Something must have happened during the last period of time and there seems to be more to it that just social brainwashing by TV, magazines or books.
