A Clear Minded Focus
Written by Sen on January 3rd, 2012 When you have a deep awareness/understanding of your mind (and body), where you understand all its dimensions, its limitations and its personality, you are finally in a place to have a “clear minded focus” on what you truly desire to experience in your life going forward – this clear minded focus is the culmination of your whole movement of becoming aware (or awakening from unconscious identification). In this place you are clearly knowing of the realities you want to experience and your being is entirely (100%) focused without any doubts, double-mindedness, uncertainties, vacillations, inferiority, guilt or ambiguities. I refer to this as phase 4, or the final phase, of awakening in my post – Awakening, transcendence and return of focus – basically, your journey from here on becomes about choosing what you want to experience and allowing it to happen. Of course, all physical manifestations take time to “condense”, but your clarity of focus allows this unfolding to be swift because you are no longer vacillating in your intent.

Clarity in the midst of options
This physical world is full of options when it comes to the experiences you can have, and these options keep expanding (the options you have now are far more than the options available 100 years back), and each option has a depth to explore. The more options that are available, the more likely the mind is to be confused, almost “overwhelmed” by the various choices available – it can be something as simple as the type of mobile phone that suits you, or as life changing as the type of relationship/career that suits you. In the absence of a deep “self realization”, without understanding the aspects of who you are as this physical body/mind and non-physical life energy, it’s very easy to be lost in this confusion which leads to a lot of stress, and allows for a sense of “meaninglessness” to creep in (which is nothing but the brain’s strategy to deny the conflict/confusion). Self-realization allows for a clarity in the midst of all these options and choices. You start living life on your terms, rather than be swayed by the masses. You don’t subscribe to an option because everyone is subscribing to it, you take up an option purely as a conscious choice to experience that option. You are in a place of “full responsibility”, where you consciously choose the life you desire to experience rather than be dragged into a life situation for the sake of meeting expectations or fulfilling a societal norm. Such a clarity is not possible unless the power of awareness in you has become strong and stable, so that it can clearly see all the aspects of your human consciousness, of your body, of your mind and of your being. In this place you are quite “unshakeable” because you are not influenced by other minds, you are deeply in touch with your own “presence”, you are truly standing on your own two shoes, conscious of your power of deliberate creation – and your mind is very steady in its focus with respect to the reality it wants to manifest.

You choose what’s best for you
There is no global standard for success. Success is a personal thing, you define what success means to you. The definition of success is a place where you feel good about your reality – that’s all. There is no global standard for what feels good, because it’s not the external that makes you feel good but your

The phase of “letting go” of the mind. it’s a clear indication that you are not really sure of who you are. it’s very dynamic and it’s a vibrant force. where you focus only on the realities that you want for yourself. You need to be honest with yourself if you are living in “denial” or if you are living in “deliberation”. There is no such thing as “one best lifestyle”. and all experiences are temporary/fleeting. to gain a sense of clarity about what you want to experience in life and to be free of the doubts. There is a limitation of “time”. you define what’s your best lifestyle – it’s a totally personal thing. because each mind has a unique way of perceiving this world – of course there is a common physical world out there (because we are part of one mind.

You can choose to enjoy a monogamous relationship in the institution of marriage or you can choose to live in an open relationship. you can choose to be a vegetarian or you can choose to lead a non-vegetarian life – as long as you are making a conscious choice. you will mostly just end up living a restless life – some people do this in an unconscious way. it just means you are bogged down by fears and inner conflicts which don’t allow you to experience your true self as this human form. and if you don’t sense this essence of life in you.

Your current reality will always help you unearth all your suppressed negativity and bring it to your consciousness – instead of feeling bad.

If you just stay as a space of awareness. and see it dissolve on its own gradually. for a while you will need to let go of the need to cling to the “good feelings”. 2012 at 11:44 pm Awesome and thank you for the explaination so glad I asked! And OMG! Does it ever happen before you realize and act in awareness. I’m so confused when my reality seems pleasant one moment and then a complete mess the next.

I feel a strong urge to move on and avoid theses patterns of conflict. stay in an awareness of it. I have been In a relationship for over a decade and up til recently it has been my main focus.

and so to stay engaged in the outside seems like a safer option to the brain. If your heart is no longer in a relationship. 2012 at 12:02 am Treeter. you can just allow the negativity to be released within you and see how it shifts your relationship. you can be sure that as you start letting go of your own inner fears. no amount of vows is going to make any difference. so we keep ourselves as distracted as we can. one can use force of fear to control a mind (for example. through vows and headship) but one cannot control the “heart”. of our body. Would appreciate your thoughts on this. Our inner space is an unfamiliar domain since we most of us are used to being focused on the outside since the day we were born – so the brain is circumspect about exploring this inner space. If you still find love in the relationship below the negativity and you sense that once you are free of negativity within you can find joy in the same relationship. of the world in general. if we can do away with “distractions” for a small period of our life. is most a source of drain than anything else.com/a-clear-minded-focus/ hope!? So tell me more. and to continue in it because a chore or a habit rather than the heart’s desire. A relationship that’s no longer an avenue for joy or love. and it would rather just stay distracted on the outside engaging with the outside. Thanks Reply Sen says: February 26. and spend some time simply being aware of ourselves – of our mind. even practices for becoming more aware can become distractions. it can basically just be a means through which a fearful mind feels “forced” to stay in a relationship. we feel restless to just be with ourselves and we immediately try to “do something” to keep ourselves occupied in some way. it brings a deep clarity. seems to disappear. you will automatically feel inspired to move out of it. 2012 at 5:04 am Sweet! : ) Reply Jim says: February 26. T Reply Sen says: February 17. 2012 at 6:08 am How were you able to get clear so (relatively) quickly? Many people try for years and years and make little progress. If you sense that there is no love left. and in many cases there is an “unknown” fear to explore ourselves deeply because we may be afraid of accepting what we may find. and I want to know your understanding on vows and headship are they obsolete/covered in total awareness? Thanks. Treeter says: February 17. Most of us are afraid to even spend 10 minutes sitting with ourselves without doing anything. And the little progress they do make. The problem is that everything can become a distraction.A Clear Minded Focus http://www.calmdownmind. 12 of 16 18-08-2012 14:24 . 2012 at 6:56 am Jim.

use them as a pointers not belief-systems. given by several teachers. by holding onto to vague ideas that it’s rare state of reach. In one sense. in all the experiences that feel aligned with your natural preference/expression. When you have a sense of clarity within you. or some “courses” they took up. Some people get this inner clarity quickly because they have willingness to be let go of distractions for a while and just bring a deep curiousity to discovering themselves – in this attitude. about yourself. So people make “enlightenment” into a life-long goal. and be willing to bring a simple innerobservation or self-awareness is all it takes to really get a clarity about yourself (your mind) and about life. that’s why they keep looking forever. speaks about how authentic you really are about coming to a clarity within yourself – it’s not about becoming a hermit for life. you can then freely indulge in this world. repeating the same practices. owing to the internet. and they just keep chasing this vague idea.calmdownmind. You can use the teachings which are present already. Enlightenment simply means to “know” yourself in your wholeness – which means knowing your physical aspects and non-physical aspects. without really allowing themselves to “connect” with themselves. and hence did not fall into any spiritual trappings or techniques. discover yourself by yourself. And yet. it’s just about spending a small period of time getting to know yourself so that you can move through the rest of your life from a place of clarity. there are so many teachings available to you in the comfort of your home without you having to waste time or energy travelling to some teacher. these are the people who are not willing to see reality in a simple way. for a while. It’s not so difficult once you know that the purpose of bring awareness within is to discover who you are clearly – not as some fancy/extra-ordinary idea but a very simple and clear looking at reality as it is. 13 of 16 18-08-2012 14:24 . instead of trying to get a sense of it within themselves in their own experience. this is age of information. in all the various activities that interest you.A Clear Minded Focus http://www. I would say I was fortunate to understand this very early owing to a teacher called “Adyashanti” (he has a website). they can read or listen to teachings without making them into belief-systems. by knowing yourself as the brain/body and knowing yourself as the life-energy that makes up everything. by investing some time towards self-discovery/selfrealization.com/a-clear-minded-focus/ Even people who decide to make the inner journey are still hooked up on distractions – they take up all forms of practices and meditations which become techniques to keep the brain occupied. In the absence of self-awareness you can’t discover yourself. the primary requirement is a willingness to find out in your own experience. and for self-awareness to grow on needs to be free of distractions. and using these teachings pure as a guidance to help them look more clearly. You can’t be distracted and self-awareness at the same time. So they go on for years and years. you need to use them to see how they “resonate” for you. initially. you don’t have to “believe” them. they don’t even know what they are looking for and they keep looking away. Most people become like “parrots” repeating what a teacher said. It’s amazing how a word like “enlightenment” can create so many imaginations and misunderstandings in people mind and keep them occupied pursuing it as some vague goal for years together. and use teachings only as a guidance or pointer to do so. The willingness to keep yourself away from distractions. There is a deep power when someone speaks for their own experience instead of regurgitating words/teachings given by some teacher they heard. Teachings that took years to gather can be gathered within a few months owing to all the books and web-information present today. To let go of all forms of ideas and imaginations. hoping that these practice would somehow take them to some unknown state of bliss – so basically they have some vague idea about what “clarity” or enlightenment means.
