Spiritual Empowerment comes from the Inner World, Not from the Outer World.“one who looks outside dreams, one who looks inside awakes.” If you are looking to awaken oneself, one must look within, for it is the inner world you need to awaken.

Happiness is not found in the Outer World. We live our lives seeking what is already within ourselves. New Scientific studies show how our mind makes connections. Neuroplasticity conveys the idea that the physical wiring of the brain changes according to the thoughts moving through it.

Neurons that fire together, wire together. This means it is literally possible to direct your own subjective experience of reality. If your thoughts are mostly of fear and anxiety, you will grow the wiring for those thoughts. Similarly if your thoughts are of Love and joy,you create the wiring for repeating those experiences.

That is not the same as saying you create your own reality by positive thinking. Instead it is more like the Buddha taught. Inside meditation is a self-directed Neuroplasticity. You accept your reality exactly as it actually is. BUT YOU EXPERIENCE IT AT THE ROOT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS AT THE VIBRATORY OR ENERGETIC LEVEL WITHOUT THE INFLUENCE OF THOUGHT. Through sustained attention at the root level, the wiring for a new perception of reality is created.

Our notions of this mind made physical world is filtered through our senses and is always incomplete. All things in the universe vibrate. Your Chakras filter vibrations.The vibration may be at different rates and frequencies.Through our six senses, not five as we commonly believe, because thought in the Vedic is considered to be a sense. We have raised thought above our senses and identify ourselves with our thoughts. Thoughts are received from the same vibratory source as the other five senses receive.

So it is not that what the eye can see, but that whereby the eye can see. Not that which the ear can hear, but that whereby the ear can hear. Not that which speech can illuminate, but by that which speech is illuminated, Not that which the mind can think, but that the mind can think.

We try to quantify and qualify our world. That is the scientific way. But happiness is not found on the outside but on the inside. The extra thoughts do not make you happy but actually separates you from the truth. We spend our time fixing the problems we created by thought by using thought. A never-ending cycle. This is our ego reaching out to answer something which can only be answered from within.

To end suffering, you must be awake. To be awake, you must quiet the mind. Quieting the mind awakens who you really are. Learning to meditate properly will help you awaken to the real you. It was the famous psychiatrist Carl Jung who said, “one who looks outside dreams, one who looks inside awakes.” It is not wrong to want to be awake, to be happy. What is wrong is to look for happiness outside when it can only be found inside.
