I am more free to receive the light, love and beauty that is all around me

Meditation by Self-Reflection has awakened my consciousness in a profound way. This method has helped me achieve a clarity and awareness that I did not have before. I am no longer overwhelmed with thoughts that control my actions and perceptions; I am more free to receive the light, love and beauty that is all around me at home, at school and everywhere. I am present. I am grateful for and amazed by this shift in my life.

It is beyond words how good it feels to live a life free of stress and worries, free of pain and struggle.

I always wanted to know  “who am I ? where do I come from ? why am I here ? what life is and what is death” ?

Since I was a child, I’ve been asking these questions to my parents, my school teachers, and the priest at the church where my parents used to take me every Sunday.

Everyone was giving me answers to these questions but it was so obvious that no one knew the answer and they were just trying to show that they knew something.

As time passed, I grew up and gave up on these questions.  I started life on my own, thinking there was nothing but living this life as best as I could by partying hard and accumulating as many things as possible.

But, this didn’t last long. No matter how much money I was making, or how many things I was buying, or how many girls I was dating, or how well I was living, the joy from these things was temporary and didn’t last.  There was no fulfilment.  Inside, I felt empty and incomplete. Something was missing.  My heart was longing for that forever lasting happiness!  But where was it? Was that even possible?

A few years ago, sick and tired of being a slave to the things that don’t last very long and not being able to find that happiness that lasts forever,  the same questions I had as a child came back in my mind: Who am I? What is this life about? Just eating and pooping? Just struggling all our life to make a better living? To fight and kill each other just to prove that I am better than someone else? To show off that I have more money than you, a bigger house and I have more expensive things than you? And then die and that’s it? Is that all we live for?

I wasn’t happy at all!

I decided to follow these questions.  I travelled around the world in search of the answers.

In my search for truth, I went back to religion.  I tried gurus, shamans, clairvoyants, hypnotism, spiritual guidance/healers and read 1000s of books. I even tried different kinds of meditations that promised a way to enlightenment.   Yet my questions remained unanswered.

That was until one day, walking by late at night, I saw the Perth Meditation sign and went in. After a short introduction, they presented the meditation and I knew that these people knew the way and had a method to change human mind to Infinite Universe Mind. They didn’t talk much about it, unlike other places where people only spoke about Truth but with no results.  The helpers invited to take me there and see for myself and this was what I was looking for.  I didn’t want to hear the answers; I wanted to become the answer itself.

The very next morning, I started meditating.   For the first time in my life, when I walked into the centre, I felt like someone was there, not to ask and take from me, but to give, to offer me something. I felt welcomed and looked after by the helpers with their big smiles and warm hearts.  They were so passionate, so caring and devoted.

I was so fascinated with the method, how simple and easy it was, and within 2 weeks, by completing level one, my biggest question (who am I?) was answered. This was a Miracle!  My parents went to church all their lives but if they were asked who they were or what was life and death, they didn’t know. I travelled around the world and tried many other things in search of truth but I was always left empty.

Here, by following the Method from level 1 to 7, all my questions were answered.  I was incomplete because I was trapped inside my narrow human mind world which was composed of my life lived and thoughts, and that was what led to all the stress and struggle.  I was not happy because I was trying to change the world to suit my mind. And by discarding my false human mind, I returned back to the origin, the Infinite Universe Mind.

Now, that I have arrived Home (Universe Mind), I have achieved completion.  The world is perfect.  I am at peace and feel safe. It is beyond words how good it feels to live a life free of stress and worries, free of pain and struggle.  And nothing can make me give up my Eternal Life and Happiness, not for all the money and riches of this world.

I am in a much better place in my life and I can’t wait to pass each and every level and go to the end.

Prior to attending the Mediation Center, I felt the world closing in on me. Feelings of anger consumed my thoughts, others were to be blamed for my actions. The tragedies in my life left me blaming the word, life was just unfair, my emotions were in a worldwide. Basically hating life, itself. I knew I needed a change, but wasn’t sure how to achieve my goal.

Then one day, I was handed a pamphlet on mediation. At first, I ignored the theory of mediation, thinking this can’t possibly work and it was another ploy to get people to join.  Feeling my lowest, I decided to give it a try. My first visit to the center, I couldn’t get the words out without crying on what drove me to come. When the instructors at the center were exampling the method, my first thought and, believe me they were many, but the one that dominantly stood out was no way that the Seven Level Method was going to work.  However, with each passing level, my emotions definitely improved. I don’t’ feel that the world owes me and I am able to detach further and further away from my false world.  People around me notice a difference; they can see that I am happier. I am in a much better place in my life and I can’t wait to pass each and every level and go to the end.

I’m starting to enjoy life more

Before I came to the meditation center and started throwing away the false me, I was really lost and confused. I felt overwhelmed and stressed. Now that I completed level 1, I feel more clear and happier. I’m starting to enjoy life more.

This meditation is? “simple and so powerful”

Before meditation, the life I have lived from the outside looked good. Perhaps to the eyes of the people around me I was happy and confident with family, school and work but I was very worried and always felt pressured within. I always had this need to please everyone and was obsessed about maintaining an image for a good person in front of others. I was always hiding behind my fake smiles and heavy make-up, covering myself up to be perfectly good. Through the meditation I realized that this was all because I was so worried about how the world saw me. I was so worried that I never wore white socks or bright colors because people could then see how dirty my feet were. I felt as if the world was judging me for every little thing about me. My insecurities always overwhelmed me that I was haunted with insomnia.
However, reflecting back at my life, the meditation has really helped me see that I was only living inside this bubble. I was stuck inside a place where I cared only about my self-centered views and comparing myself and wanted to become better with my own standards that I had made to myself. Now that I look back at myself, I was so ridiculous! Riddling myself with so many worries.
I have done the meditation from level 2 in Korea, so I have not yet met people that know of the old me. However, even the people here say that from the time I’ve been here that I look brighter. I see my own change too, my insomnia is gone and I dance around in whatever colored socks, without makeup. When I no longer rely on the opinion of others, I feel much stronger and free. The greatest gift the mediation has allowed me is to allow me to see that the world does not spin around me. I have been living only for myself. For me, the greatest part of this meditation is to see reality, the true world, outside of my bubble.

You start to see yourself, the way you are in all aspects of your life

The cool thing about this meditation method is that it has this ability to show you who you are from a much bigger perspective than yourself. It is really hard to see yourself as yourself, so the method has this way of showing yourself from a bigger perspective. Then you get to reflect on yourself on how you actually are and you see things in yourself. And I saw things in myself that I did not realize that I had before the method. I think that is one of the biggest strength of this meditation. Speaking from my own experience, I found it really hard to bring big changes within myself but this method has helped me get rid of my habits and useless negative thoughts.
I am definitely happier now and also just more relaxed. I feel better within myself and that is the best way to define happiness for me. Also, I am more focused. I mean I work with computers and it is important to have patience and really be able to focus throughout the day. I work with my head the whole day, thus it is so important to be able to be relaxed within myself. Not always trying to move, not always thinking about something else, just staying put; and the meditation has definitely helped me with that.
The meditation has also improved me as a husband and father. One problem that I think in many relationships I find is; you have this expectation of the other to give you something the whole time. You want to get something from that person. And I think the meditation has changed that perspective for me and my wife. It is now more about putting in the work yourself without underlying expectations for one another. Also, this meditation has changed the way I see my children. I seem them more as the way they are than I did before as a parent and as a father. There was a certain bias that came with the strong attachment that I had for my children. Getting rid of that, I think you start to see your family in a more realistic way. This is also good for the kids, because they feel that and they feel actually more relaxed around me.

The difference in my life … can be described with one word: Gratitude.

I don’t have any dramatic life story to tell. From the outside, my life looks quite ordinary. I grew up in a safe environment in a suburb in the outskirts of Stockholm. I had friends, a Nintendo video game and everything a kid could wish for. My family was not religious and relatively open-minded, so I was free to make my own life decisions. I graduated from university and got a job at an IT company and thought I would be happy but, in my mind, I was never truly happy. Every time I achieved something that I wanted, I just wanted something else, something more. I was constantly stuck in my thoughts with my wandering mind. I was always wondering, stuck in my own thoughts, asking myself why I had so many thoughts in my head. I tried so many different things to find an answer but everything I tried only gave me a temporary release.
Though very quickly I realized by doing this meditation that this thinking was about myself and the reason that I think so much and why I was so stressed was because I was caring only about myself. For me, I used to carry things that were unnecessary. I knew that ruminations were unnecessary and bad for me but I didn’t want to nor know how to let go. However, through this meditation method I learnt how to truly let go of the worries and thoughts and to me that is true relief.
Now, there is a huge difference between the me before and the me now. Before, I needed so many things in life to be happy. I needed my hobby and I needed to have certain people in my life. I thought I needed a lot of things. Now I have no worries about the future so with this mind I can just live and the universe will take care of things for me. Now I have also learned that when I sincerely care about others more than myself my stress fades away and I now know how to truly contribute to the world. The difference between my life before and after the meditation can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I feel so much gratitude for this meditation, for being able to let go, and for being able to confirm with my mind that I am fundamentally one with everything around me.

Be the change you want to see in the world

I think when I was born I chose 100% heart and zero head. I love people and love to help them. That has been part of my life for a long time and even the success in my career comes from it. However there came a point in my life where I sought for ways to help others but drove myself insane because I could not find a way to help the other. Once, one of my family members was suffering from depression. There was nothing that I could do to help and knowing that I couldn’t help that person brought me to an even deeper depression. However, once I started the meditation, I noticed a change in me. I realized that only I can change myself and only I can help myself. It was no longer about my need to help and improve others but it was more about being an example to the people who require the help. I found a way to show true compassion and love to others by helping myself. Everything I do and want to say in a short version is that ‘live by example and be the chance you want to see in the world.’
When I started the meditation in the U.S., my career grew a lot faster. People were nicknaming me as a “superstar” and I was awarded a title as the ‘Top 5 Person’ within my industry with a promotion of an executive VP. Though my career was successful I realized that my job made me so busy. I knew there were a lot of opportunities for me to grow through the meditation and I knew to gain something I needed to sacrifice something. Thus with a bold decision, I chose to go to Korea to invest in myself and it was not just a gold mine, but a diamond mine. I can see that most people who want to try the meditation are just so busy with their lives, but I wish they take a moment to invest in themselves to find what is that they truly want in their lives. For me, I just love who I am inside right now. The language and food was very different in Korea but it is nothing compared to the depth of the gratitude I have for the method because it has changed my whole entire life. Though the past 4 months of meditation in Korea, I was able get over my traumatic experiences in my past, conquer my phobias, and be free from the health conditions that has been following me all life. Many people tell me that I’ve changed a lot and tell me that I look brighter and younger.
At this point, my heart is full of joy and love and gratitude. So with this gratitude that is inside, I want to give this out to other people now, by being an example.
