The Missing Part – A “Dip” into Ourselves


When speaking about a work on self- development which could bring us to a state of improved awareness, very often it happens that, even if we realize our state of  “sleep”, we are unable to overcome this state or harmful emotions – our limitations. Then, in these moments, we ask ourselves why this happens, why all seems almost impossible, even if we have understood our condition? What is missing? Because, if we experience such limitations and remain unable to overcome them, some piece is missing, isn’t it?

We often affirm that we have understood, at least partially, the nature and reality of our illusions. Then, the realization of the “non-real” is fundamental, because realizing what is unreal immediately allows us the realization of what is its opposite – the “real”.

So, what is missing?

What is really difficult is to discern the intellectual from experiental understanding. It’s a very good thing to understand a concept intellectually, but it is far better to realize it through our direct experience, and willy- nilly, this is what is missing in all of us – experience.

“I know, it’s true, I understand, I agree…” but, have I realized this? Is it really  my experience, or some external information i have accepted for this or that reason?

When we experience a deep perception of the “illusion”,  we remain silent and dismayed, incredulous that we hadn’t noticed  something so big, fundamental, incredible… and simple.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen in a natural way. To achieve this, we need accurate “knowing” to observe ourselves and life in general. We need some “tools” which could replace our eyes to “see” in a different way.

The desire and the observation would not be enough.

We also need a “mean” to enter deep into ourselves, behind the chaotic noise of our thoughts, which, in the East is called Meditation.

That’s what is missing – the experience of a dive into the depth of ourselves. An external verbal indication or belief can’t replace this. In fact, they remain without consistence just because they aren’t a result of a personal, individual experience, and this can  happen only through an inner silence, free from our beliefs, points of view, and convictions, because, even in a path towards  personal development, we build such convictions. Then, from this silence, we can move to a more sober and genuine observation.

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”.
