Journey Of Darkness
The Journey towards Transforming our Negative Ideas can be a journey filled with darkness and confusion.
Although one could know that the Acceptance of The Self is the key to transforming all our Sufferings, the actual practice of Acceptance in real life is indeed challenging.
How difficult it is to accept someone who has angered us?
How difficult it is to accept ourselves when we have failed?
How difficult it is to accept the future that may have events we do not wish to happen?
How difficult it is to accept the past where we've regretted doing something wrong?
It's easy to understand the importance of Acceptance. But to practice it can be challenging and confusing.
This is why this website has been created. Here you will be able to find articles to help guide you on your journey and accelerate your progress - these are your Catalysts
Realize that there are always ways to Accelerate/Catalyze a process.
For instance, when a large stone wheel is lying flat on the ground it can take forever for one to push it towards their desired destination. However when the person is guided with the right Knowledge, i.e. being guided to push the Stone Wheel upright instead of flat on the ground the destination will be able to be reached in a shorter amount of time using much less energy.
This website is a Catalyst in itself, guiding you with the knowledge of how to make that journey towards greater happiness in the most efficient way.
Because now that you know that the seed cause of all forms of Sufferings are Negative Ideas, for instance "It is not ok..." you can invert the Negative Ideas to get an idea of the journey you will have to make to transform the mind ->"it is ok.."
"It is not ok to fail" --> "It is ok to" fail"
"Is it not ok to be selfish" --> "It is ok to be selfish"
"Is it not ok to stand out" --> "It is ok to stand out"
And the fastest way to push the wheel of self-transformation is through developing Self-Acceptance. So the spiritual lessons that one will have to go through to transform the mind will always revolve around the theme of Self-Acceptance.
But how do we develop Self-Acceptance?
You can try your own methods if you wish. But the most efficient way is to develop Stillness and Self-Knowing.
On this website you will be able to find information on how to transform all different forms of sufferings. On the top of the page you will see a section called Catalysts - and there you will be able to find all sorts of Catalysts to address all sorts of Sufferings through learning about them to understand how they are created from Negative Ideas and how to transform them.
The Courses section on the website are for those who wish to go deeper with more detailed descriptions and instructions.
However, before one tries to accelerate on the Path, one must first understand the importance of developing a strong foundation.
The Importance Of Foundation
Before attempting to run one must learn how to walk first. Thus before one attempts to "accelerate" on any journey one must develop a good foundation. Doing so will allow for a safe and efficient journey.
Like a Tree which has the desire of ever reaching higher and higher, if it does not practice the very basics of grounding its roots deeper and deeper and developing a strong foundation it can topple easily under a breath of wind.
Yes, even the Tree Knows how to create a strong Foundation!
So for us to climb even higher we first have to develop our foundations and this is about developing Stillness. Because without Stillness there will be no Knowing and then no Transformation. So Stillness will be the key to making great progress.
Turning that wheel of Transformation will no doubt take time and patience.
But each small turn will take one to advance one more step forward.
Like the gigantic Ocean that is created from small droplets of Water.
Or the great Hours that passes by with each small Seconds.
Every small efforts one puts in taking a step forward will always bring oneself a step closer towards greater Transformation.
Thus do not be disappointed when you do not see big results with small steps.
Because that is just Impatience blinding us from seeing our results.
Realize that when we have been drowning in our Sufferings for such a long time it will no doubt take time for us to break through the surface.
So in these 7 Chapters we have learnt how to create everlasting happiness in the mind. Now how can we apply the knowledge we have gained into our daily life?
