Mentally Fasting and Natural Self-Awareness

The Rhythm of Nature

There is a way to mentally fast as well. This is what the basics of modern-day camping is all about. Instead of simply being a way to survive in the wilderness, today’s campers do so to get away from the hustle and bustle of the populated areas.

They disconnect from their electronics, at least partially, and open their senses to the continuous and rhythmic sounds, sights, sensations and smells of nature. This opens up their mind to communication with Earth and the individual living components that exist therein and this changes the composition of the human who is composed of experience and sensation to once again becoming part of Earth and the larger system.

Continuous Bombardment

When we are working in a populated area or researching online we are entirely saturated with the subliminal belief system projections, the continuous advertising and expression of repetitive and materialistic ideals of others and corporations. This is like becoming part of the machine. When the mind is constantly ready to accept this information eventually the mind beings to continually search for that next bit of information. This is like a hungry animal that is used to eating a hefty meal that contains little to no beneficial  value but tastes very good. Eventually people realize the taste is nothing compared to a healthy meal.

Each time we scroll an image feed or a video feed and look for the latest new videos or announcements we are feeding that portion of the brain which has grown through social engagement to feel fulfilled and complacent as long a we are connected to society in a meaningful way. This is literally tickling that part of the limbic system of the brain where we receive emotional response for performing or failing to meet some requirement.

False Enlightenment

This is, however, not the real thing. This can be used to attain a real level of satisfaction however the results will not always prove to enable a greater level of communication and awareness of society or more importantly the self. If one attains the knowledge of their self while alone and in nature, then how much have they truly connected to society in order to do so? Have they not entirely disconnected from society in order to find themselves the most directly?

So when we are seeking that satisfaction by continually accepting a bombardment of information, even if we feel this is socially engaging in some way, we are actually increasing the mental and emotional distance between our conscious mind and the spiritual awareness that has no identity and no pathway leading inward. The conscious mind seeks stimulation, distraction, polarity and linearity to make things clear-cut, easy to access and understand. The identity-less spiritual awareness has no form and no shape so there is no true desired pathway or method in reaching it.

There is No Path to Self Awareness

Therein lies the trick, the true pathway towards reaching this awareness is by walking backwards away from the entanglements of the conscious mind. Instead of leading ourselves forward into some path or maneuver that will reach a destination, awareness is found by quelling the desire to continually search linearly as if this is something outside of the self. Since the awareness is inside the self, then the search is not a search, but a removal of the clutter of the conscious mind. This is merely a letting go, a looking within in a split second of the nullification of the temptation and desire to continually seeking more information outward. That is the holographic structure of the brain which acts like a computer and what is a computer doing without input? Nothing! So then what happens to the conscious mind without that continual stream of input? Nothing! So now that we’ve been so worked up with engaging in such a manner what are we so keen to do? To continue that input and feed a data stream into the conscious mind so as to feel as if we are doing something. We are not the conscious mind however! So how could feeding a portion of the self which is meant to look outward into the world and determine opposites help us become more secure and prosperous?

The Only Ideal is Self-Awareness

It doesn’t! It’s a trick, and it only puts the mind into a lulled state of saturation which allows one to ignore the true nature of the spiritual self which is also most likely related to some kind of reason behind not wanting to know the truth self such as a fearful event, or embarrassment about some ideals we feel we don’t live up to. All of that is illusion! It’s all inserted after the fact by external means and largely people who wish to profit off of the insecurity of others!

Is it not obvious now, how there is a complete business called ‘society’ based entirely upon bringing people out of the true spiritual awareness of the self which requires no advertisement, no addons, no colorful images or data streams but simple words that acquire and emit a rhythm of information similar to what would find in the calm, cyclic experience of being in nature? That is the business of entraining human souls to focusing on anything but the human soul.

Nature is You

The experience of nature works, because nature is you, you are a part of nature. Being in nature is synonymous with being in you. Going within yourself in a state of peaceful meditation where all that you are focusing on has to do with what you are experiencing within is similar to going into nature and simply being aware of the continuous cycles of changes that occur around you. Ultimately these cycles make their way within you, just as those data-streams of images and videos do. The difference is that these images, sensations, sounds and smells have been around for as long as you have however the images and videos of the Internet were just created yesterday.
