The 1 Master key towards YOUR Evolution.
To evolve is to be a whole and integrated human being. It is different from developing. To develop is to grow slowly; adding layer upon layer to what already exists. You develop a skill like developing listening habits. Evolving on the other hand is a dramatic change into something entirely different. For example, Anton Chekhov, one of the greatest short story writers of all time, has started out his professional life as a physician but by time he discovered his calling in life and ended up as a prominent playwright. In the case of Chekhov, he has evolved into something entirely different. To evolve, an internal journey needs to be undertaken first.
Looking at the other and wider end of the telescope, we see the act of evolution apparent in Amazon. It started out selling books online, but now, it sells everything from pickled carrots to diamond rings. Described by many as the Internet’s biggest retailer. In one of his memorable quotes, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, declared that: “In business, what’s dangerous is not to evolve.” He went on to say that the relentless focus of his company should be on the customer. He asks everyone to invent on the customer’s behalf. That’s an insight about the external journey of evolution.
Since private victories precede public ones, the internal journey of evolution has one Master key that opens three locked doors of your being. This Master key is your awareness that entails you to:
- Be aware of your body: Your body is affected by the thoughts that come into your mind. When mind suffers, body aches. Suffering of the mind is caused by negative thoughts; which in turn disturbs your body. Being aware of that gives you mastery over your well-being.
- Be aware of your thoughts: Your awareness is at the center of your being; it watches silently the thoughts that come to you. The mere observation of awareness over your negative thoughts freezes them from further penetrating. If the light of your awareness is unhindered by negative emotions, negative thoughts can be controlled.
- Be aware of your emotions: Negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, greed block the light of awareness that heals your emotions, feelings and thoughts. Your heart is the gateway to your center of being – your awareness.
Humanity has reached a stalemate by not going beyond the mind and into the Heart. Unless this courageous move is done, evolution is not possible.
