“Put a smile on your face,
Don’t bring everybody down like this
Don’t worry, it will soon past whatever it is”
Each morning, we awaken to the boundless realm of possibilities, accompanied by an array of micro and macro tasks, presenting us with endless choices. Often, we find ourselves on autopilot, allowing events to unfold as they naturally do, oblivious to the predetermined path influenced by our internal predispositions.
Whenever we perceive the world through the narrow window of our limited selves, we lose sight of the bigger picture. Lacking understanding, we resort to imperfect judgments about the happenings around us. Yet, the moment we recognise our ability to transcend this confinement and broaden our perspective, seeds of awareness are sown. These seeds intermittently sprout, eventually crowding out judgmental weeds within the garden of our consciousness.
Every action performed with mindful awareness and detachment from outcomes acts as a purifying agent. It cleanses the negative emotional residues attached to each memory fragment stored within our mental landscape, which in turn shapes countless patterns directing our negative inclinations—known as samskaras. By assuming a witness-like attitude towards our actions and observing our reactions, we create a state of harmony and equilibrium that facilitates the release of samskaras. How do I feel? What thoughts arise within me? Am I attempting to avoid, reject, or suppress anything?
Through such observation without expectation or attachment to results, actions transcend egoic limitations and become selfless. The confined and suffering self, perpetually plagued by obsession, dissolves. Gradually, we cultivate immunity against the pains that accompany the human experience. With the dissolution of the ego, we transcend suffering arising from reactive thought patterns.
By embracing an egoless mindset, we awaken a higher vision driven by a profound sense of selflessness. This shift creates a temporal vacuum, allowing the Higher Self to emerge. In this space, the intellect, known as buddhi, is activated, enabling us to tap into the ineffable magnificence of the intuitive and all-knowing aspect of the universal mind we collectively share.
“Now there is this song I wrote
I hope you learned it note for note like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy”
