Swimming Against the Flow


Watching the river flow

The resistance against any kind of changes is not only psychological, it drags her roots from the deepest and ancient connection between the individual and the environment surrounding him.

We can say that all what exists moves in a sort of flow determined by a specific evolutionary process towards the Oneness, with which will be merged. Our life moves inevitably in this flow.Something an obstacle slows this progress, something a chink accelerate him: this process determined by specific laws is called by us humans history.

Looking form an Universal point of view, this flow is the life itself, but in the eyes of the human beings, all this appears so abstract, a sort of “mystic vision”, because his whole attention is captured by the stones, sand, shallows of this Universal River.

However, some Humans have a so intense craving to achieve the source of this river that they prefer to find the way to the source of this immense river, swimming upstream to reach it. This isn’t a fighting against these laws, but rather, a forcing some mechanics generating a possibility contained in some hidden way in the Laws themselves.

This is the path of the Seeker, and who seeks can’t stop his progress, the flow drag him at the beginning. This is a voluntary effort , a long and hard path, determined and feed by the individual wish for changes. During his swimming against the flow, he’ll experience inevitably the resistance against his aim in thousands ways, because the same flow will claim him under her control. All this is written in the life’s “code” of this planet- one must replace the old ideas with some new, and this is  sort of conscious dying the seeker chose every moment of his day-life.  But, when one tries to kill virtually himself, his beliefs, his old points of views, the past set of a real conflict, shouting for help the preconceptions, doubts, fears, expectations to avoid the dissolution of what is old.

Every pure teaching shows the way and the manner to reach this goal, but this is a far possibility, because personality has to leave the place to the Being, and when personality feels her end, she begins a war against the Beings whisper that is still weak in the seeker: all will begin a rebellion drawing him to the inertia, to the doubts, to the judgments, generating a sense of powerlessness.

But someone made it, reached the source of this great flow, and if those few has realized this aim, we can do it also. And if we can do this, many other humans will be able to do it so. If it’s possible for a single individual, this possibility is realizable to some others, and maybe, one day, this possibility would be of public domain. An individual effort to develop is also a part of a more bigger, global development. Driven by those who preceded us to drive those who will begin this path with our example.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
