Spiritual retreats!

Posted by / 28 December, 2017 / Categories: Author's notes, news / -

You have probably heard about spiritual retreats, yoga retreats, mindfulness retreats, religious retreats, silence retreats, vipassana retreats, Shamanic retreats… Maybe you have already participated in one of them.

But, what ‘s a spiritual retreat, and what is it for?

As its name implies, the goal of the experience is to withdraw, in this case from all mundane involvement, to learn how to connect to the “not-mind”, without mundane interaction…  Answering an internal call  that claims for a “change” in order to live balanced in deep harmony, recovering the sense of life, of self healing…

Anxiety, depression, nervousness… are round indicators to connect with one’s authentic self.

Appear all kind of diseases, physical and mental troubles, when a person has to make huge efforts to adapt to a lifestyle full of adaptations, to be accepted by a sick, blind, insensitive, unbalanced, destructive, unconscious and ignorant society.

To retreat is to be with oneself every second of the experience. It is to avoid fleeing with a thousand excuses and excesses.

There are different spiritual retreat levels, according to the preparation and preferences of the participants. Knowing  that we live in a society where fear has been used since the beginning of time to manipulate and control the crowds, people are “guided” to buy products and services to escape from their empty lives, searching for lots of mundane distractions.  Unfortunately, nowadays the spirituality trend offers more or less the same than the conventional lifestyle, but with good intentions. It is in fashion to practice yoga, to be vegetarian, vegan, to join a somewhat “commercial” retreat, to try to appear “different” in this unbalanced world. But many don’t make the necessary effort to change deeply their lifestyle. It is a pious hypocrisy!

Because minds get bored easily, the necessity to renew distractions constantly appears. There are distractions that are directly destructive and others that are placebo that don’t help people to jump to their true liberation…

The common trait of everyone who joins one of the above mentioned retreats is the desire to live in peace and harmony. But one cannot be in peace and live in harmony if they don’t recover and start loving themselves from the soul, uniting body, mind and spirit in connection with the “source”. It shouldn’t be forgotten that hormones, influenced by others human magnetic fields, can control the mind and behavior, leaving no options to the individual but to follow their lead, unless they have learned to connect with the essential, with the transcendental reality, that is only one for all beings. Also, it is important to know that all living beings are energetic receptors and transmitters, especially sensitive people…

Traditions feed destructive distractions, leading people to live in an endless loop. Only minds can create the distractions necessary to satisfy the ego. People search for distractions, thinking that they are the only way obtain happiness. But, ironically, every year and day, people activate the same mundane rituals (celebrations, habits, superficial trips…), because they haven’t  reached the so desired peace and harmony, as they are looking for it behind ephemeral happiness; because they aren’t aware of the transcendental dimension of existence.

When someone is in peace, they do not feel the need to look for it, or to try to reproduce said search. Only by enjoying the ever changing fullness, by contemplating the sun, that rises and sets at the endless rhythm of nature, that is always moving straight ahead, despite the cyclical seasons, and that transforms everything into infinite life, peace can be reached.

Four seasons pass every year and seem to be cyclic, but the tree grows tall and strong every year, staring at the sky, having roots deeply connected with Mother earth, opening its arms to embrace life, sharing what was gifted by the universe.

Distractions are very limited and unreal life approaches that the mind creates for its own egoistical satisfaction, because the fear of the unknown has been inculcated upon it, and because the mind is far from the true way of living, which is sharing what has been offered.

The need to join a retreat, should come from the necessity to remember or improve how to live in harmony with the all. The mind thinks and lives in a loop. The spirit/soul, manifests itself through intuition, and only feels from the heart its interaction with this earthly environment, living and not drowsing by virtual dreams.Choose your individual or group retreat to keep growing free and in peace, according to your emotional and spiritual preparation. The liberation process should be progressive, pleasant, without any haste or expectation. Some people contact me because they are interested to offer one of the transcendental retreats I propose as a gift to a friend or relative. To join an “non-commercial” spiritual retreat of reduced distractions, is a very personal thing and should not be given as a gift. Neither should someone ask to be accompanied to one. There are things we can only do on our own, just as we come to and leave this world. Every being is responsible for reaching its balance in life.  Liberation can only be granted by oneself.

Lots of people join a retreat accompanied by their partner or their friends. That is a clear example of a distraction because of their fear of the unknown, of being alone, of getting bored without TV, radio, newspaper, internet… This means that they are not yet prepared!

Vipassana, meditation, silence retreats:

Dare to look into the eyes of your mind and ego. Make sure you are prepared to enjoy the experience. If you are not ready, the practice can be hard and temporally destabilizing.  The rush for liberation is a consequence of restless and impatient minds. With patience everything arrives sooner.

<<< Your best choice in this life, will be what you choose from your intuition, without caring about others may say or think. Your good intentions will always lead your steps to peace and harmony.  When you will start again walking in this life free and in deep peace, you will leave behind heavy burdens that anchored your existence in the “bondage” of the mind and others opinions dependency. At the beginning, many friends and family may think that you are “the different” that moves away. But you will feel in every step forward that you don’t flee, you just get closer to your mission in life to your soul and peace for the good of all >>>
