Your body is like your house.
Your mind is like the owner of your house.
A long time ago, that owner left the house and has been wandering around looking for health, happiness and peace everywhere outside.
However, to find true health, true happiness and true peace, the owner must come back home. It means, your mind must come back to your body after it’s many many years of wandering around, focusing on what other’s want, say and do, focusing on a myriad of entertainment and external stimulation, friends, lovers, roles & responsibilities.
The mind must come back to the body in order for healing and self-development to happen.
To heal oneself, is to know oneself. The only way to know oneself is for the mind to come back, and to come inside.
When you come back to your house after such a long period of being gone while the doors and windows were all left open, what do you think your house will look like?
You must begin a process of cleaning from that time. There have been so many unwanted creatures and critters, bugs, dirt and cobwebs inhabiting that house since you have been gone. They have come to believe that they are the owners of your house. That’s why we lost the ability to control our minds and to control our bodies as we intend.
We need to recover ownership.
The cleaning process is not always easy but it’s much needed.
Everyone accepts that we have to clean our skin and hair in the shower everyday, but few people realize how important it is to clean the inside of your house as well.
Through cleaning, your mind can return comfortably to your body and enjoy being there. This is being present.
I have been practicing this process for years and years. Because, at some moment 15 years ago I became so sick and tired of being ruled by the bugs and dirt in my house. So I made a commitment to this process of cleaning – to this process of inner growth. It is certainly not easy but it has been amazingly rewarding.
I teach this to my students nowadays in our advanced Self-Mastery class. I love to watch them going through the process. At some moment, they begin to feel how they can change themselves, their lives and even their moments to be more of the way they truly want them to be. This is the beginning of becoming the creator.
I believe we all want to be creators of our lives. We are creation itself so of course we are most happy when we are creating too. However, so many times we are creating unconsciously, blocking ourselves from conscious creation because we don’t know how to manage our own minds. And we don’t know how to truly love and own this process, recognizing our lives as great gifts for the unfolding of it.
That’s why it is a very happy thing for me to watch my students as they begin to practice – as they begin to realize, to choose and to create.
I hope that all people can recover their innate power. It begins with the mind coming back to the body.
