words.

recently i have been posting about semantics, or the meaning of words and how they create our reality. the reason why i have been doing this is because we live in a semantic reality. whatever our consciousness exists in is immaterial compared to the power of words that shape our reality. all of the practices of buddhism, yoga, shinto, etc are useless unless we are consciously aware of our words.
most people are unconscious of what goes on below thier nose. the noises that eminate from the hole that lies there are merely to give orders.
they don`t realise that the noises they make hit the ears of those around them.....and thier own ears too.
the noises we make are the song of our life.
our world.
our universe.
the noises we make go inside and paint pictures in our minds.
those pictures make us have feelings.
those feelings are the ground state of our world.
what you feel becomes your reality.
100% of the time.
so it goes to what drives the feelings.
words.
when we begin to see some of the science behind words, we can then learn to master them and change our reality as a result.
don`t apologise. never apologise.
just dig in and learn to witness what comes out of the hole below your nose and learn to choose the words that will make your universe the way you want it to be.
now.

i suppose i was being ironic. what happens when we begin to take on personal power through the language we use, there are repercussions regarding how others react. the status quo gets ruffled by changes to thier peaceful slumber. they can hold you responsible for the disturbance. they may want to try to hold you responsible and expect an apology.
empowering yourself, in whatever way you choose, is a disturbance amongst the sleeping.
to apologise is to go back to sleep, just when you are begining to wake up.
there is the story of the crabs in the pot;
if one crab trys to climb out, the others pull him back in.
the sleeping masses will try to pull those begining to wake up back into sleep. they will go to all lengths to do this. to be aware of the potential for this is the first step to becoming safe from thier attempts.

Hi Dr, Goodmorning

Is the spoken word or the incessant chatter of words in our head (thoughts), which one creates our reality?

DOnt our thoughts give rise to stronger feelings than the spoken word?

"what happens when we begin to take on personal power through the language we use, there are repercussions regarding how others react. the status quo gets ruffled by changes to thier peaceful slumber. they can hold you responsible for the disturbance. "

How can we take on personal power throught the language we use?

the incessant chatter in our heads and the words we speak all contribute to our perception of reality.
if i was to say which process had the most effect on our reality i would say that the internal dialog is the more powerful mechanism for personal creativity. the voice is generally directed at others while the "chatter" is aimed at the self.
the "chatter" can be told to shut the fuck up! it will and in the silence that you`ve created you can begin to create a universe that you can enjoy.
the language we use creates our reality and so the more motivating, supportive and loving our language becomes the more our world changes too.
it has to happen.
it is already, we just haven`t looked at things in quite this way before.
we have always been in control. we just went to sleep and forgot.
now we are begining to wake up.
many around us are begining to wake up.
find the others.........
you will recognise them by thier smiles and thier innocence and thier power.

Dr my exbf sent me a mail just now saying he wants to return the money i lent him.

I called him up. He said he is in Bombay and was laughing saying he is at a some club. Then he told me the club is next to Taj at Victoria Terminus (which is a really rich high profile place).

I asked him how ws he doing and he said really really well. He then asked me how i am doing and i managed to muster quite okay.

I asked him will he meet me before he leaves? He said no he cannot for he is going for a surgery tommorrow. He then told me he took some tests for the surgery and they were so good. His health was perfect. The Doc cannot believe he is 60, he feels maybe he is 40. His Hameoglobin is 18. His lungs inspite of smoking 5 packs a day is perfect. And he mentioned to me " my kidneys are doing really well. My Creatinine is 1. (Creatine is the toxic which is flushed out by the kidneys. The normal range is 0.8-1.2) My whole body is responding perfectly to me.
Every night i do a 5 minute meditation and hold all my organs together with love. Now i have no problems what so ever. The Dr said this is a real miracle".

I asked him if he would keep in touch. He said yea after the surgery is over and he has recovered which will take him 4-5 weeks.

Dr i am crying here. This man used to sit hours with me to figure out how my kidneys could revive. He is the man i can give my life for. I love this man.

He knows so well that i struggle to get my hamoeglobin up to 10. He knows better than anyone else that my creatinine is 11 and only if it goes down to 1 my kidneys will revive.

(cryying)

He does not seem to lov eme anymore. Else he would not have told me these things.

I feel weak and vulnerable whenever i talk to him. Some kind of a power in him and i feel so controlled by him.

I dont have any of his rich and powerful friends, i dont have meetings at the Taj and i dont have a creatinine which is 1.

*crying

Do you think something is mentally wrogn with me? I just cannot understand why my exbf ws the way he was todya.

anu said...

Dr i am not blaming him. Becoz afterall i only called him up. I only asked him these questions.

He was just being himself.

It is me who cannot handle his answers.

I see i am drawn to him becoz of the way he loves and adores himself. There is such a power in it that i feel weak and become clingy.

I want such a power in me Dr Alistair. I want my own power. I dont want to ever cry becoz someone said this or that happenned.

I want to love myself so much that i never get hurt. Nothing bothers me. Nothing or noone has the power to make me feel weak or control me.

Becoz i am in me. When i talk to him, i feel he is in me. I dont want him in me Dr, i am tired of it. I want me!!!

Where am i. I am longing for my own touch. I miss me. I miss my power.

(crying

your power is in the pain you feel. the pleasure has been where you feel he has been. you don`t want that anymore so look to the pain. what does it make you do? that`s where you wake up and do things differently. the more you do that, the more you find yourself.......every time. no betrayal. no let down. just unconditional love for yourself.

anu said...

I just woke up Dr Alistair. Before i slept i have been praying that i find me.

Thank you for your feedback Dr.

But what do you mean by:
your power is in the pain you feel. the pleasure has been where you feel he has been. you don`t want that anymore so look to the pain.

I appreciate and value every single word you write to me Dr. And i am dying to get to the core of this as it is causing me more anguish than ever before.

dr.alistair said...

the pain is a signal to change. the pleasure is a familiar association to the relationship. i didn`t mean this in a general sense. just in the context of the dream and it`s memories and loops to other related thinking. the power you have is in looking for alternatives. flexibility. one of the metaphors of yoga as a practice is that it encourages flexibility in the body, which relates to the mind automatically.
flexibility is the key to changing behaviour. the more options we have in a situation the more power we have as a consequence.

Thank you for your feedback Dr Alistair :-)

I want to apologise for the flooding of your blog with my problems and comments.

this blog is a public forum. you have a right to comment here . there is little need to apologise. this is what environments like this are for. to discuss things.if you recieve some relief then that is good, this effort has served it`s purpose. hopefully others reading here will be encouraged also. maybe they have questions too.

anu said...

Okay. Thank you.

I received not merely a little relief, a real conditioning to my mind. I feel that you are working with me helping me to get closer to myself. This is one of the greatest gifts i have received.

I also want to thank you for the patience and compassion you have in dealing with me.

I've worked really hard the whole day on myself. I have accepted myself as i stand right now. No matter what, i care for myself and i love myself - is what i've been saying to myself the whole day.

Every action i do, every sentence i speak, i asked myself today 'will this get me closer to me?' If the answer is yes i go ahead and if no then i did not do it.

Now at the end of the day, i am feeling far better. I see that my body, mind, soul, spirit is begining to respond to me as i am taking pains to care for it and listen to it.

I want to keep working till loving myself unconditionally becomes second nature. I appreciate your relentless support and guidance
Dr Alistair :-)

P.S: If you are wondering, i am saying this for the 100th time and it wont be long that i post another whiny shitty tearful message on your blog. Maybe i do that. So what, it is okay to fuck up. I am that and i am this too. I can't help it. I keep coming back to this.

dr.alistair said...

that`s right. what we tell ourselve`s goes deep down into the cells and over time the cells will manifest what you are saying. the simple fact is they are manifesting what you have already been saying. the work you do now will pay dividends shortly.
