Hey everyone! Its been so long talking to you all. I was trying to figure out my existence and it took me so long to understand the real essence of present moment. 🙂
Today I wanted to pen down my real experience of so many months to understand present. I have heard people saying that I just want to be a good Human being. My dear friend ‘JUST’ is not a small word over here, ‘JUST’ is not a destination but a life long journey. It is tough to be in a state of ‘Being Human’ throughout the life.
I know this is not a new thing which I am talking about. So many people/ gurus/ speakers/ have spoken/ written about it.
I regularly come across 2 terms in my my mind “Jump in” and “Jump Out”. During my training sessions also I do this as an ice breaker activity for Listening skills. One day while doing this activity with group of participants I figured the concept of “spiritual whirl”. A whirl where we put loads of energy like meditation, yoga, silence , dance, loads of theories, Trans Music, Mindfulness, Emptiness etc… to jump out from the worldly affairs and to taste the nectar of spirituality and to relax for some time. However after some time we again come back in the same kind of worldly affairs..therefore it is “Jump In”.
We are doing it unconsciously but when you try to give thoughts to it or you have to ponder for some time have you realized that in initial stages the energy which we have to put to adjust in ‘Jump out’ phase is very high. It is extremely tough to relax.
Energy for Jump out is way high> than energy for Jump in. Gradually this energy will reverse due to regular practice. i.e. Energy for Jump out is way low< than energy for Jump in. You must be thinking how?
It is a process of adjusting the awakening of soul and mind in worldly affairs. We start feeling and comparing the others with self and it happens because we are completely not awakened. Energy for Jump out is = energy for Jump in. It means you are an awakened soul and is continuing the journey of being an awakened soul. It is a continuous journey, it is not a destiny.
You won’t believe but gradually you will feel that you will like jumping out more than jumping in. Do you know why? A sense of accomplishment comes. It is a sense of achievement.
Recently I heard a talk on life positions. The speaker was talking about how people juggle their emotions between 4 quadrants of ‘ I am OK, You are OK’ for reference the quadrant is given below. *Here I is self and You can be any second person/ group of people/ city/ customer/ idea/boss etc..
During the talk I got connected with the concept of Jump in Jump out because consciously if we know how much time do we have to stay in one quadrant and how soon we can come back to ‘I am OK- You are OK’ then we are living in ‘present’ and not in future or past.
This is nothing but the continuous journey of ‘Being Human’. It is not the state or a destination to attain but a continuous journey to walk through the life through ‘Jump in and Jump out’ of spiritual whirl.
