Himalayan Zen – Climbing The Mountain of Wholeness

Inner peace is available to you at every moment. Yet clouds of conditioning often blur the clarity of the sky, which might hide, but can never leave you.

Himalayan Zen is an effortless way to shed all these clouds, to reconnect with your inner wholeness.

In the ideal situation, climbing the mountain of wholeness is as simple and effortless as just being.

But in the modern world with a mind which is conditioned for survival, fear, lack and inadequacy, humans make it difficult to discover the bliss and joy which is their inherent nature.

This is the reason going against the effortless principles of Himalayan Zen, for the modern human, a journey of wholeness has to be made. But where is the mountain of wholeness?

Where to Look for wholeness?

People try to look outside for other people, experiences, objects, methods, which might relieve them of their overthinking and make them feel the eternal bliss and joy, which they once felt, which got hidden over time. But all such external attempts are temporary at their best and a waste of life energy at their worst.

So Climbing the mountain of wholeness is a journey inside. A journey which requires commitment, persistence, dedication, and the ability to navigate any circumstances that might arise.

The Himalayan Zen Way to Inner Peace

The Himalayan Zen Way requires you to dare to go beyond your mind. If it is not testing your faith, your predetermined way if being then it will do you know good.

Climbing the mountain of Wholeness requires a certain level of Openness, Curiousity, Kindness and Dedication. These traits help you move and sustain your journey towards climing the mountain of wholeness, if it was easy, everybody would do it.

The mind always seeks familiarity in thinking patterns, this might appear comforting even if it might is depleting to your life condition and life energy. To break these shackles you need summon your inner energy, take a leap of fait beyond fear and…

  1. Explore your inner experience,
  2. Challenge your assumptions about yourself and the world
  3. Experiment with behaviors that are outside your comfort zone.
  4. Relieve yourself from the accepted negative bias towards life.
  5. Expand beyond the socially acceptable conditioned way of living.
  6. Free yourself from Confining Ideas about yourself and the world.
  7. Turn towards every new Experience with a freshness and no previous perspective baggage.

A Rebirth to Joyful Spontaneity



The Himalayan zen way is not just another process to make life less difficult. It is not anothe self help method to carry old patterns of thinking in a new way.

It is more revolutionary, to the extent that it requires the death of the old you, to ressurect as a new you. Now let’s deconstruct that heavy statement.

The mind with its conditioned patterns, identifications, and separate entity and ego, will always protect itself, and any attempts at transcending normal thought process will be made to appear like death.

That’s why many people keep clinging on to thought processes which don’t serve them, even when they are aware about their issues and bad habits. Letting go of this negative pattern of thought is made to appear like death by the same mind, which tries to protect itself.

So it stays alive, but this aliveness comes at a cost. It costs you your peace of mind, your frwoth and Ultimate liberation.

This is the reason why the Himalayan Zen way helps you climb the mountain of wholeness, makes you reconnect with who you are beyond your roles, and from their let go of limiting beliefs and traumas and fears and live a life of Joyful Spontaneity.

The Cost of Excellence – The subtle art of handling Success?

Excellence demands excellent expectations of self. To be great at something, a superhuman level of dedication and commitment is required.

The money, fame, prestige comes as a consequence of hours and hours of training on a craft, for which a different kind of an effort has to be put. This is the first cost, which only a few amongst us can pay.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg, as the real cost of Excellence comes after you have excelled. Most can’t experience it, and hence are ignorant of it, as it only comes after a lot of effort, dedication and discipline.

The Second Cost of Excellence

The cost of Excellence mentioned above, the struggle, the discipline, the effort, is the first cost and very small as compared to the second one.It is just more glamourised as it is more sensory, it can be seen, heard, touched and more people are aware of it.

But the second cost is more subtle, it doesn’t need to paid on your way of becoming excellent at something. It is more like a consequential cost of the outcomes of being excellent. To know about it, one has to truely excel at some aspect of life otherwise experiencing it is out of the question.

The second cost of Excellence which comes after the results of being excellent at something is often looked down upon as humans are so desperate at being excellent. This sublte cost involves:

  1. Adjusting to a new world of money, power and fame beyond which you previously had.
  2. Loneliness which comes with being unable to share your issues with the world as your excellence makes you appear perfect, and only perfection is expected out of you.
  3. Judgement as All your actions and inactions are seen through magnified lenses.
  4. Expectations to live up to the world’s view of you and sustain your super levels of effort for ever.
  5. Living with your old mindset with new toys, balancing the obvious inflated ego, an overwhelming Vision and a  deeply competitive attitude.
  6. Pressures of always seeking perfection knowing the world is complete because of its imperfections.
  7. An inability to seek help outside because of your self image of excellence and the inability to find fault in self, as they are so few. Check the Johari Window 
  8. Being surrounded by people who are afraid to be honest with you as they want to keep you pleased.
  9. A sense of guilt, self doubt and self judgement at your failure to make peace with the consequences of your own excellence.
  10. The distractions that come with being succesful.

The Subtle Art of Handling Success

As life quality improves, more and more people are commited to achieve excellence in different avenues of life. And they actually are, but they seem to lose their way once they have realised their initial dreams. Distractions, failure to find more purpose and new passions, lack of motivation to keep going forward derail their excellent journeys.

But it’s all too hard to see with an inflated ego, with dishonest company who can’t give you bitter truth and with fast paced life in which is hard to slow down and find yourself away from your roles.

So that makes handling success a subtle art, which is not an everyday job everyone can do.

With Swasthya, my holistic health and life coaching organisation, we do recommed reading the subtle art of not giving a fuck and also helo you master the subtle art of handling success.

I don’t work with many everyday people who haven’t realised the second cost. I work specifically, on invitation and recommendation, with the second kind of people who have realised excellence and suffer at the hands of the second subtle cost.

If these excellent people can be realigned and recentered, they carry the potential to inspire a generation, create massive global change and live as inspirations for the rest of the world.

All it needs is deep listening, unconditional love and helping them return to their natural self, which is easier said than done as their being excellent compels them to have a huge sense of separate identification, as that is what gets them to be excellent in the first place.

But if we can help them first recognise and then tame this beast of an inflated ego, we can help them harness the abundant energy inside and put to it to awesome use. The cost of Excellence then turns into the investment for excellence.

How to Breathe with a mask on the soul..

The failure to recognise and embody your Magnificent Wholeness leaves you Gasping for breath even in an environment of abundance even when you know how to breathe.

 

Although it is a necessity and although I don’t hate many aspects of this blissful life. But I hate wearing a mask as it hampers my direct and natural interaction with the surroundings. Your breath is the most intimate you can get with the world around you, that’s why most spiritual practices focus on how to breathe efficiently.

How to Breathe through a soul mask? 

The pandemic is a great exhibit of how limiting a mask is when clean, fresh air is all around you, of not breathing wholly even when you know how to breathe (autonomously).

 

It is a reference to going through a prosperous life wearing a mask of fear, not living wholly even after knowing how to live.

This invisible mask everyone wears is either deflated fear conditioned lack, inadequacy, or inflated self importance and entitlement.

Experiencing, Engaging and Exchanging with reality through this mask of limiting beliefs is detrimental for the respiration of your soul. The soul which at the begining was clearly aware on how to breathe on its own.

Self unworthiness and self doubt, are major consequences when your soul is not allowed it’s full exposure to life. When the mask of a limiting mind hampers every moment you are inefficient in all your interactions with life.

How to Breathe with a mask on in the physical sense?

Please keep the mask on in public places. Avoid public places to stay unmasked for longer.

Even when you can’t avoid wearing masks, make sure you take breaks from public eye, go to an isolated place and do some deep breathing without a mask for 2-3 mins.

Spend some time just as you wake up and before going to sleep to Intentionally practice deep breathing. This will be beautiful for respiratory function and also balance Life Force(Qi, Prana).

How to Breathe with a soul mask- the unmasking of the spirit?

These are picked up from a beautiful book and will provide excellent explorations of your mask of conditioned lack inadequacy.

Just shining the light of your attention on these will answer your question of how to breathe with a soul mask and make you connect to your highest spirit beyond the limitations of a separate identity.

1. Know in your heart of hearts that you lack nothing. Any story about being wounded, broken, or not good enough is simply not true. As these stories arise, stop engaging with them. Keep returning to presence, over and over.

2. Reflect on the ways you behave that don’t serve you. Can you see how these patterns are driven by a sense of lack? Take away the content of the story, and feel the sensations in your body, just as they appear. Let them come out of hiding! Meet them with the deepest acceptance.

3. Recognize that you’re aware, and stand squarely as awareness.

Is awareness bothered by any story?

When you stand as awareness, is anything lacking?

This is who you really are.

4. When you feel hurt, insulted, or rejected, challenge the story that grips you. Know that it doesn’t actually define who you are. Lose interest in the story, and directly experience what remains. Be present as the timeless now for whatever arises.

The physical mask is a big revelation as it helps understand how I have been loving with a metaphysical mask all my life. A mask which limits me from fulfilling my potential and makes me inefficient.

I am sure knowing how to breathe physically and metaphysically will help you as much as it has helped me.

5 Simple and Easy Tips on How to Overcome Fear?

Although there are many people talking about ways in which Fear paralyses growth few offer practical, ready-to-do ways on how to overcome fear.

It is essential for you to learn how to overcome fear, now more than ever, as fear doesn’t only prevent you from doing the major things, it has become an exploitable part of your psychology as it paralyses your mind from functioning to support you and makes it go against you.

How to overcome fear

If you can give yourself a few moments away from the conditioning of fear, you will be able to observe. Fear is the reason why a common cold, or flu takes the form of life threatening disease. Fear is the reason why little breathless can turn into a lung issue. Fear is the reason why your worries cloud you from seeing life as it is, and make mountainous issues out of petty miseries.

Some Quotes

“All problems are driven by fear, a sense of inadequacy, or both.”

“Whenever you look deeply into the reality of human suffering, you’ll find fear hiding out—behind the flood of thoughts, inside your tense muscles, in the midst of your edgy mood.”

“Don’t be seduced by the fearful mind, and you are open to what is actually here, living in the unknown because that’s what’s true.”

“When we attach our survival or contentment to temporary objects such as our body— or someone else’s body—we live in fear of their dissolution.”

How to Overcome Fear?

Now that we have realigned with the fact that fear cripples life and decision making, and in the modern world directly leads to death, let’s attend to how to overcome fear.  They will require a certain level of faith and going beyond your mind, which is one of the main culprits when it comes to preventing you from overcoming fear.

1. Be a Welcoming Presence

Set Some Unplanned Time for yourself.

Tough as it maybe, the mind doesn’t want you to think you can exist without its planning, try to keep a part of your morning or evening unplanned. Allow yourself to flow directly with life’s experience in absolute Spontaneity. Don’t try to move life, allow life to move you.

2. Understand The Language of Fear

Get to know how fear speaks in you.

Reflect on these questions:

  • What does fear tell you about the future?
  • What does it tell you about yourself and your abilities?
  • If you feel limited in any way, what is fear telling you?

Now shift your attention away from these thoughts. Recognize that all of this mental activity arises in awareness. What happens if you don’t pay attention to these thoughts and rest as simply being aware?

3. Body Scanning

Practice in peace so that you are able to recognise when the body starts getting stiff because of fear. This is super difficult as over a period of time, you have naturalised this bodily stiffness that comes with certain emotions. When you practice through Body Scans, you tend to rebuild your mind-emotion-body connection.

This way you are better equipped to become aware of the physical sensations that you label as fear. And you can allow yourself to let these labels go and experience the sensations directly as they are.

4. Dissolving the Separate Self

The core of all spiritual teachings aligns with the one conciousness of which all are a part. Contemplate living without a sense of the separate, defended self. Nothing is separate from anything, including you. You’re fearless—because everything is you. Try it on! See what it’s like to live in the world without fear. What would you do? How would you feel?

5. Meditate to Subtract Time from Reality

When you meditate, sit focusing on your breath, shut your eyes and try to at first Intentionally subtract the sense of time from reality. Timelessness is a great builder of fearlessness as Fear, just like any sensation, requires time to build up. As you practice more, you will be able to realise yourself as a formless being in the timeless now.

Once you have understood and embodied how to overcome fear, you will see a major shift in your view of life. You will find no reason to defend, or be vigilant, you will a deep sense of relief as the effort required to sustain a false self identity drops.

You will find yourself overflowing in every moment as life itself, celebrating life, and even becoming a more efficient with your functional self as you lose your attatchement with it.

This is the beginning of truly living. Fear no longer stifles the natural, unconditioned expression of you in the world of form. Hope you can effortlessly receive this gift of how to overcome fear and share it with someone who might need it.

The Law of Attraction Works but….

The law of attraction works but it requires an efficient engine to work (mind, body and soul) first. An engine which will fire you from the inertia of rest, beyond the drag of self limitations and into the orbit of your dream life.

Therefore before releasing your rockets of desire you need to ensure the engine is efficient and there is maximum unopposed momentum, otherwise your dreams will crash faster than the stock you invest on.

The Trap of Conditioned Contradictions

Yes it is a trap, of humanity on humans. It is so stupid that you will not believe it until you believe it. You come in the way if your own dreams, yes, you are your biggest opponent, and this is even before the rocket of your desire takes off.

The conditioning of Contradicting what you want through limiting beliefs is a big hole in releasing your rocket of desires with full momentum. These self made holes leak out most of your energy before the law of attraction begins to work it’s magic. Here are some common contradictions in what you want and what you do, which prevents you from making the law of attraction work.

Law of attraction

A Content Engine(harmonious and self serving mind,body and soul) reduces the drag of contradictions and creates propulsion, creating perfect momentum for the law of attraction to bring your most amazing desires.

The conditioned Contradictions prevent you from tapping into the vibrational abundance within. Which is is the most Magnificent fuel, which keeps you in sync with the creative laws of the universe, tuning you into god frequency and setting you up to launch the rocket of your desires with efficiency.

So Before the Law of Attraction works you need to..

Manage your Contradictions and align with the pure natural energy available to you at all moments but camouflaged behind thought and feelings. This pure energy keeps expanding and so do you when you stop doubting, limiting and contracting your beliefs.

This unshackling of self leads to many gross and subtle energy changes. Changes on both the metaphysical and observational levels of your being, which transmits outwards into you surroundings.

Objectively you open up to observe hints of progress towards your visions, you are content on the journey towards your dreams knowing they have no chance not to be manifested, the fact that your desires originate from a place of love, happiness and joy is proof of its ultimate fulfillment.

Pursue these desires from a space of unflinching and undoubtedness as that puts you in alignment with source energy.

Vague Dreams Vague Achievement

Not recognising the Vibrational Worth of your inner being and waiting for objective worth to be satisfied first limits you from any achievement and puts you off your natural worth and self esteem.

Dream Specificity, faith and joy and gratitude in pursuit are the fuels that help you achieve your crystal clean dreams in crystal clean way.

At most times the law of attraction is abused and criticized when people pursue it vaguely. The lack of inner work, tending to your engine of your being, never allows the rocket if your desires to take off.

All dreams which come to you from a place of purity are already true, that’s why they have come to you, their realisation on earth is assured, only if you don’t come in your own way.

The law of attraction works but for it you have to lay a foundation of mind, body and soul alignement, just like you have to set up the rocket to fire the rocket.
