“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”
Peter F. Drucker

As we advance in the therapeutic process, we increase our self-awareness gradually. Seeing identity as a layer of the consciousness, helps us in observing ourselves and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, we can dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.
But in the parallel world, we just keep walking in our every day reality. Having new experience and insights during the therapy, we re-create ourselves through our projects. Being active and courageous in our goal pursuits is the way to advance and become more vibrant. We feel more deeply connected to our true self…
Every reflection is followed by certain activities, just as every dynamic by a state of inner peace.
And this is the Rule:
“I didn’t know my life was a reflection of me.”
Developing the Seer
Few people understand the power of the mind. You can create anything by the mind, good or bad. It is a force, an energy. All our sufferings are due to the mind.
In physics, the scientists have clearly stated that both matter and energy are creations of the mind. Time and space are both spanned by the mind. The time/space/object continuum is created by the mind, just as we make a candle out of wax. The wax is the candle and when it melts, there is no candle. In the same way, the mind is extending itself.
You must realise that the mind is a creative force. A thought is an expression of creation and you don’t know it. You think a thought and something happens somewhere. Therefore, man’s unhappiness, physical illness, intellectual limitations, emotional breakdowns and lack of many other faculties in his life, can all be attributed to incorrect handling of the mind. In order to handle the mind, we must first develop the faculty of seer. Unless we do this, we can never manage the mind.
Man has been following a mirage, a world of delusion. He should realise the world within, the happiness which is non-material, does not depend on the object. There is a greater happiness which is homogeneous and absolute, and that is the Self, beyond the mind. …
