The End / Re-Cycle

 



The End!


A vision came recently in my dream...

The high snowy Himalayas were under the waves of the water of devastation, the skies were heavy and dark, the storms were roaring tremendously and moving the cold winds in all directions, the constant scary thunders were enlightening the darkness, while we were sailing on a small boat towards the once highest peaks on Earth, now moving quickly under water...

As a child the creation came into my dream, now the destruction is taking place...

The Bible gives us the story of Noah, who build an Ark to save humanity and all living species during the times of a great flood... In the Vedas, written +3000 years before the Bible and existing since milions of years ago, a similar story is describing Manu, the first representative of the Man-kind (Man/human EN, Mann DE, Мъж BG etc.), who build a ship, in order humanity and all living species during the cyclical flood, which happens partially or fully on Earth after a certain period of time as a marking of the re-cycling and restarting the natural cycles of the universe, since the temporary manifestation has a beginning and an end, as well as a further new creation, existence and an ending...

The devastation in my dream began quickly, the old world has to cease existing: a world of hatred, selfishness, ignorance and sin must transform either voluntarily by our endeavor or by force of the strict laws of material nature!

The water reached the high plateaus of Rila mountain, the skies were screaming deadly and raining fiercely thunders and endless quantities of water... a beginning of boat trip towards the last bastion of mankind: the mighty Himalayas, standing untouchable and still like the eternal tim

And our time is limited and passing so quick, our time in this life and body, our time in the context of the limited universal cycles of the unlimited time... personally often forget that everyday can be my last day and have to spend every second very wisely and purposefully... and what about you my dear friend?

Every ending is a new beginning... and a new chance... to become better, selfless and pure...

Every day is a new beginning... every cycle will be restarted until we return to the kingdom of eternity...

Turn around the sand clock!

 Dear friends, thank you for your birthday wishes: may your blessings return back to you!

Драги приятели, благодарности за вашите благопожелания за рождения ми ден: нека благословиите ви да се върнат при вас! 

 

 

Нашият човешки живот е възможност за израстване и чистота!

Ако приемем, че животът е максимум 100 години през настоящата епоха - или да примем 108 години за по-лесно математическо уравнение - по всичко личи, че съм на 1/3 от пътя и времето в това тяло и в този свят. Реално обаче в най-добрия случай съм на половината спрямо начина на живот, чистота на храна, вода, въздух, почва, ниво на стрес, градското замърсяване, взаимоотношенията и прочее и мога да обърна пясъчния часовник и времето започва да тече наобратно...

Пясъчният часовник тече и всяка отлитаща секунда време, невъзвратно не ще се върне... Крачки към смъртта или стъпки към вечността : въпрос на перспектива и личен избор - път към телесните потребности и временни желания или вечните духовни търсения: душата, Бога, чистата безкористна любов...

Затваря се и един десетгодишен цикъл за мен: всичко в живота ми се преобръщаше тотално през 2010 г. и реших, че е време да се променя, преходът между старо и ново продължи през 2011 година, извървях Ком-Емине по билото на Стара Планина за първи път и 2012 беше ключова за решителни промени... нови проекти с екологична насоченост, планински приключения, йога, живот без алкохол, наркотици и месо, спазване на целебат и чистота, медитация, творчество, отворих очакваните духовни книги...

Почти на всяка стъпка по пътя имаше и грешки, и пропадания: трудности, които ни правят силни, за да продължаваме да вървим по Пътя към чистото щастие, надявайки се да получим благословията
наистина да го извървим докрай...


Всеки ден е ден за равносметка, а днес и за виртуална почерпка от мен!

И за благодарност: животът ни среща всеки ден с множество учители - такива, които с любов и благодарност ни зареждат; други, които ни дават сили да продължим въпреки трудностите; трети, учещи ни на разнообразни уроци... животът е приКЛЮЧение!

The Flying Dutchman!

 


 

Walking in a park in Plovdiv,
the country second biggest city...

In 2021 after a massive congressional chanting
of the Holy Names of the Lord on the streets...

The sign and name of hotel "Leipzig",
reflecting in the water mirror of the lake,
brought tears in my eyes...
and the memories appear of the
transcendental saintly Flying Dutchman,
dancing in the middle of the small city squares,
in front of Lord Jagannatha during the Ratha Yatra festival,
dancing as a real representative of Sri Chaitanya...

And the promise that there will be an ISKCON Leipzig in the spiritual world...

And the hope that we might be dancing there once again... in the world, where every step is a dance and every word is a song!

The Yamuna in Netherlands!

 


On a new year's dream was standing
on the banks of a river in Amsterdam, Holland
which actually was the most holy Yamuna flowing in India
as a child, crying in anxiety...

 
Together with the flying Dutchman,
who was turning my anxiety to joy...

The self

What is the true nature of the self? 

 

1. Who am I? Am I the face, which I see in the mirror? Or the self lies hidden beyond the reflection?

 

 In the morning the mirror showed me a face, the same face, which is standing now in front of you. Is it really the same face? The heard and the beard are growing and with every second of time we are becoming one second older. Science is proving that all body cells are being completely changed in a certain period of time. We can see that also the body is being changed during one’s lifetime the baby evolves into young man and adult, finallydegrades into an elder, but I am always the same. I change my mind,but I am always the same. Who is this unchangeable I? 

 

As “Bhagavad Gita, As It Is” (2.16)states: the soul exists, I am the eternal soul and the body is different from the soul:“Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent [the material body] there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both.”2.What is the nature of the self and the relation between the body and the soul? The body is a material object, being born and dying, evolving and changing and the soul is the eternal spirit, unchangeable and ever-­‐existing.The soul is the driver of the body vehicle. As the driver may increase his driving skills up to becoming the fastest or safest driver of his kind, similarly the true evolution is the evolution of the consciousness, which is the symptom of soul. The soul is the conscious living being inside the body and the symptom of life as Krishna speaks to Arjuna in “Bhagavad Gita” (2.20): “For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-­‐existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.”3.What happens after the body is being slain?Every vehicle is going through the cycle of life -­‐birth and death: a car is being produced in a factory, in the first years the owner drives it very fast without the need of maintenance, afterwards it need to be maintained and finally must be recycled. And the driver has to change the vehicle. Similarly as “Bhagavad Gita” (2.22) states, the soul reincarnates in different bodies after the body becomes unusable:As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old und useless ones.”4.“The individual soul is unbreakable and insoluble, and can be neither burned nor dried. He is everlasting, present everywhere, unchangeable, immovable and eternally the same.”(“Bhagavad Gita” 2.24)Personal experience is different from theory. Please listen to one real story: my grandmother left this world 4 exactly years ago and my father was sitting with her in the final hours and chantedVedic Mantras. Her body was old and powerless and when she left I was outside the house. Suddenly i felt a wave of happiness and bliss in my heart, feeling that someone was hugging me very soft. Although the separation brought sadness in my heart for the lost connection with the personality of my grandmother, I wasn’t feeling sad for the loss of the body, which became very quick cold and lifeless.“Bhagavad Gita” (2.25): It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.”Pleasesend her your blessings, wherever she is!Bhagavad Gita” (2.26): “If, however, you think that the soul [or the symptoms of life] will always be born and die forever, you still have no reason to lament, O mighty-­‐armed.”

Незагиващата Луна!

 


 

Светва и изгасва,
пътеводна светлина
в мрака на нощта
за пътник без дом и земя...

Пристан за пътника в лодката,
прекосяваща безбрежната вода... 

Безбрежният океан на материалния кръговор, самсара...

Светва и изгасва... Фарът на нос Емине...

Слънцето и Луната
са светлината на света!

Воден под лъчите на слънце и луна,
прекосявах по гръбнака на Балкана
преди десетина лета
устремен към морската вода
и при една пълна, досущ като днес, Луна
мислех си "Какво ли е наистина Любовта"?

Чистите души силно светят
досущ като Луната
осветяват пътя на мнозина
разсейвайки мрака на невежеството...

както осветява пълната Златна Луна
тъмата над нощта в Емона... 

И отваряйки пътя към чистата Любов...

Златната Луна
грее над нощта...

Незагиващата Безстрашна Луна!

 

Щастлив съм десет години по-късно отново да срещна в Балкана Незагиващата Луна и осем години по-късно да срещна отново светеца, носещ името на Незагиващата Луна!
