But what I have noticed is when there is sadness around me...I often have sad dreams. The environment affects us in a subtle manner that reacts on a subconscious level. In the spirit of renunciation I will often tell a woman who is quite attractive to me of my intense interest in Amma. Sending someone a link can offer insight into another person. They may just ask you not to respond to them. Or on the contrary they May recognize The significance of the information. Even curiosity shows some receptivity.

Steve is this sadness the result of someone else crushing your desire or subconscious expectations?
Sometimes I will have sad and even horrific dreams which is why I find counting our blessings such a valuable practice.
Onward and upward my friend. <3

We blame others for our sorrows and misfortunes, not perceiving that we ourselves are the creators of our world.

     Bowl of Saki, June 6, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:

Externally we are a single being, but internally we are a world. As vast as is the world around us, so vast is the world within. Asif says, 'The limitation of the sky and land cannot be compared with man's heart. If man's heart be wide, there is nothing wider than this.' All can be accommodated in it; heaven earth, sun, moon, all are reflected in it. It becomes itself the whole. This world becomes as one chooses to make it. If man only knew that! But since he does not know that, the world is not heaven, but has become its opposite. We blame others for our sorrows and misfortunes, not perceiving that we ourselves are the creators of our world; that our world has an influence upon our life within as well as upon our life without.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/VII/VII_17.htm


One learns to understand that there is a world in one's self, that in one's mind there is a source of happiness and unhappiness, the source of health and illness, the source of light and darkness, and that it can be awakened, either mechanically or at will, if only one knew how to do it. Then one does not blame his ill fortune nor complain of his fellow man. He becomes more tolerant, more joyful, and more loving toward his neighbor, because he knows the cause of every thought and action, and he sees it all as the effect of a certain cause.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/XIII/XIII_5.htm


I think that it is important to put the question you asked me in perspective Eric. You took my quote from another thread that has relevancy to you to this thread. Since you asked a question in your last entry I will respond to why I think you asked that question by giving the topic that it appears to relate about. I agree with everything thing that Inayat Khan has said here; Our reality that we experience is created by ourselves. We can also be cognizant of elements of that reality unfolding before us in our dreams and our consciousness.

To give an example a Master like Inayat Khan or Amma can foresee certain conditions or events or know the consciousness of another being that comes to them. That state of being may not be anything they created but rather they know what they are witnessing. So in this sense, it is a witness state of consciousness and, it is not something that they are attached to which they identify with and have sadness as a result of someone else “crushing their desire or subconscious expectations.” I would not go so far as to say in all my experiences I am a witness to what I experience and have no personal identification with those experiences but it is something that we aspire towards. Thoughtful question you posed here and a good way to react to our experiences; “I find counting our blessings such a valuable practice.” Isn’t it important to be responsive and not reactionary in all our encounters in life?

Happy July 1st Divine Friends.


I wonder if this is as much of a concern when we are not in a position to be rewarded in using it? Hope you follow what I am saying dear friend. Some of us live a humble life. We are humbled by circumstances.

Hi Steve,
I don't understand what you're talking about. Today's message reflects the teachings of the other masters discussed here... The battle-cry of Gurunath, "Self peace for world peace"
Quote
Man must first create peace in himself if he desires to see peace in the world; for lacking peace within, no effort of his can bring any result.

Peace in the world is quite a different idea than pride in knowledge. I think I have met many college professors who had pride in knowledge. There was really no other way of looking at a subject for them except there own view. You can see that in most people in many subjects. But when someone is given a title they often seem to get more dogmatic then people who have more humble lives. I’m just saying that many simple people have such a humble life that they are not in a position to have pride of knowledge.

Its often the more someone has financially and in titles quite often the more they think they are right. Perhaps you see it differently. You have people who will ignore all the evidence provided and make up their own philosophy to justify their pride and satisfaction in what they think they know in their given field; for instance Trump trying to run our country like a business that has a singular vision of Americans first without seeing the larger view of his destroying the earth.
