When the mind’s imperious nature rules supreme, freedom becomes a word with little or no meaning. Human potential limits itself to a prismatic lens that views a world in which chaos controls the lives of most people, a world that keeps us from becoming fully human, from tapping our creative potential and living extraordinary lives. We pander to an ego that congests the flow of spiritual energy. The “I am” is no longer linked to nothingness at the core of one’s being. It’s linked to false images created in our brain, and our spirit finds itself lost in an incomprehensible jigsaw puzzle with thousands of pieces that don’t fit together. We dilly-dally in a space full of refracted images, a world of make-believe that we’ve convinced ourselves is real and we’ve lost touch with the “I am” that lives at the center of our being. When asked who we are and what we do, we mumble gibberish, static-like answers that lack substance, but we never admit to being nothing, a grain of sand, naked, and lost in a labyrinthine maze of ego and opinion. We never embrace an internal state of emptiness that allows spirit to guide us in time and space.
Those who strive to attain an internal state of nothingness laugh when people in elite social circles ask them what they do for a living. They have no need to be pigeonholed in well-insulated cubicles, nor to live with false identities. They just are, that’s all, and their presence reflects the grace of Divine energy. They could be businessmen, janitors, stock clerks, financiers, doctors, lawyers, students, etc. No job or profession is a socle (base or foundation) that supports identity. Whatever one does to earn a living perfectly fits into the design of the universe. Its use of God’s energy on earth is an important part of the cosmic puzzle.

Real identity can be found at the center of one’s heart, a place where joy, love and gratitude light up a human being, a place from which compassion emanates, and love is given unconditionally. Though pain is real and suffered by every person, though stress is real and will never go away, one solution is to build an inner life that’s strong enough to transform stress and pain into love and balance. No one can separate himself or herself from the multidimensional movie screen of life. It reflects the internal chaos in every one of us; it also reflects the need for love, for happiness, and a life well-lived. There’s no need to build an egotistical house of cards that sources human pain. The merging of one’s consciousness with Higher Energy is an enlightened state and attainable if one uses the craft of meditation to radically transform their inner world. It leads to the practice of Tantra: a oneness with cyclical change, the ability to let go of the past and future and live one’s life in the “now…”
