Truth

Truth:  something that is undeniable when observed from unquestionable fact or, as referred to in meditation, truth often points to indisputable reality. Many students believe that truth is unquestionable. For instance, all things born into creation are subjected to the same rules of beginning and end, at least in the material form. Truth may also refer to statements or situations, as in the truth of the matter.

Often when one hears the truth, they do not respond, they merely digest the knowledge or fact. For the purpose of our studies, from a state of meditation, (conscious observation) we digest some simple truths as unquestionable facts based on what is known to be true. “We are.” “This is.” (See more on this topic at wakingupwithpatrick.com:  Awareness.) Frequently when a truth is spoken it settles in like an epiphany; an “oh yes” moment. As if it is some life changing bit of information we have been waiting to hear our whole lives and, when applied to our journey, changes our understanding of what we once considered true.

As your level of consciousness deepens you find those things that cause you to question, are doing so because they are not true. In our studies we rarely question undeniable truths. It is a truth that the majority of us are driven by a thought stream, which pushes us and leads us in all sorts of directions and that stream of thought is often beyond our control. The fact is that if you could stop it, you would. Another truth is that you are not the stream of thought, it is a mental function of your mind. It is not truly you. You are something else.

A meditation:  try it out, here and there, when it comes to your mind, or not. Take some moments, observe your thoughts and bring to mind some beliefs, knowledge, viewpoints, etc. that you have on any particular subject. Take a moment to look at the truth behind your mindset on that which you are observing. Look for yourself for the truth behind it, is it unquestionable or factual? Be aware that if your mind creates a conflict with the thoughts, your position is to observe. Most truths are undeniable. It is a new day, your day!

Inner peace may mean different things to different people. Some may believe that inner peace is different for all of us, which can also make defining inner peace a challenge. For many of us, the desire for inner peace can be clouded by definition or in our inability to possess the knowledge to find such a state of being. For myself, inner peace is a mental state of being not clouded by the repetitive conditioned programmed thinking of my mind. A state of being where my true conscious self is separate from the manipulation of my thought stream. Like too many people, I had a rough start. I was raised in the 1960s during a time where the line between discipline and abuse had not yet been drawn by society and where, in many homes, neglect and victimization was the norm. In too many arenas, it is still the same for many unfortunate children and young people today. As a result of the environment I was raised in, I spent most of my twenties in a state of mental anguish. At the age of 27 I came to the understanding that abusing drugs and alcohol was not the answer for dealing with a tortured mind, and though I was able to accomplish and attain many material things that the world had to offer, I wanted something more, inner peace. After being diagnosed with institutional grade PTSD and several sever forms of depression, I decided to take on the challenge of psychoanalytic therapy. For 13 years, I worked with therapists, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, and medical doctors to address the disorders that were the result of my upbringing. I included personal studies of psychology and human behavior to add more knowledge in my pursuit of wellness. By the age of 40, as I had always done, I was sharing the knowledge I had gained and my life experience with others with similar situations to my own. Despite my efforts, I could still not separate from the mind of a manic depressive. I could not attain inner peace. My desire for inner peace led me to meditation. Meditation is a practice that separates us from the workings of the conditioned programmed mind and the endless stream of thought. After several months of mediation studies and practice, I began to feel the separation of my true self from the confines and mental torture of my own mind. At that moment a new, although difficult, journey had begun. I spent years of riding the roller-coaster of mental anguish and peace as I continued my struggle to mental freedom. Now, 18 years since my meditation studies commenced, I find myself in a state of conscious presence that allows me to live peacefully with a mind suffering from mental illness. My journey has included sharing my knowledge and understanding of the inner workings of the mind with others to help them attain peace and joy as I have; aiding them in their quest to escape the suffering of the confines of their programmed conditioned minds. I have recently taken my teaching to a new level, carrying myself as a published writer, teaching mediation and sharing the knowledge of the ability for each and every one of us to achieve our natural state of being, which is peace, love and joy.
