A mentor of mine of Asian Indian descent, Dinesh D’Souza has just alerted me to wake up. Regarding what? Well I can’t remember what category he was proposing a wake up , but it closely resembles a remark or a campaign by another of his lansmen.
His fellow countryman would be Tony deMello, a Jesuit priest who has mentored me for years.Tony I know was from Goa, and hence the “D before his name indicating Portugese ” influence. The same could be true of Dinesh but I don’t know for sure. I just like their clraity and intelligence.
Tony has constantly been calling for awareness, so as to displace illusions. Dwelling on illusions leads to living an unreal life. Dinesh just called for us to awaken so we can see what is really occuring. They sound very similar, but have different life paths.
Both words can mean very much the same thing.As a matter of fact Tony often says wake up, eventhough his main theme is awareness. Often he says many words can be used to explain the same idea. He always says you can express the same idea in many ways. But they all mean seeing the truth, the reality of a situation.
How do you know what is real and what is not? Real does not depend on theories or procedures. Experiencing a thing is what is necessary. Not being concerned about what others may say.
Why am I even mentioning all this? Because these men from similar backgrounds are both pointing out how many things are cloaked in disguises. They can be misleading in many ways. Dinesh speaks about history, politics, and economics. Tony speaks more from a philosophical and theological perspective.
My dilemma is an elevated blood pressure reading that I can’t seenm to reduce .I use energy techniques , a half measure raw food diet, and other assorted supplements. Nothing has worked yet, but I will stick with my plan of energy use and observation.
My BP problem seems to be of mental origin and I’m not getting to the answer.Tony says just observe, and see what comes up.A problem will dissolve when observed. Maybe I have not taken this to heart fully.
Let this Holy Saturday be the start of a new observerence of myself.
I will keep this piece open and unpublished to be able to add to this coming week. Well, I have edited a bit and added a bit , but only going through it will suffice.
