The life is simultaneously happening both in the external as well as the internal world. To become one with the natural process of life, one has to observe both the internal as well as the external world.
Whether you exercise, follow your diet, work, meet people, go through different experiences of life, face different situations, or events of life, everything you do on a daily basis, influence your internal world. At the same time, if you consciously make the changes in your inner world, you influence the outside situations and events that you are about to face in the external world.We never try to understand the process of life or at-least what goes within the self, and thus remain far away from the true reality of life.

Life is a process, and everything whether it’s our inner or external world, is continuously going through a process. We spend our whole life thinking or imagining things, cursing life, or expecting the life to behave in way or the other, but never try to understand the ways of life.
It’s important that we drop our own individual ways and try to understand how life works?
When you understand the process of life, first thing you realize that the mere information about life will not serve the purpose of life, but you have to become one with the natural process of life. Your body and mind has to participate along with the process of life. Your body and mind has to transcend each day along with the natural process, if you wish to see the necessary changes within your life.
There are seekers who seek enlightenment. They are in search for the truth. Any master they encounter tells them that the truth exists inside, and asks them to seek the truth within, but they don’t know, how to seek the truth. Nobody tells them to go through the process of transformation with their body and mind, so that the absolute truth can be experienced from within.
You don’t have to pull out the truth from somewhere, but the truth already exists inside. All you have to do is, transcend your body and mind to the level, where the truth can reflect within.
Now, to go through the process of transcendence with the body and mind, you have to engage your body and mind with the daily life on an everyday basis.
Life is a process and you cannot achieve anything without being part of the process. You have to become one with the process of life before you experience the truth. Just the information or knowledge will not serve the purpose of life.
When you become one with the natural process of life, you receive the clarity with life. You see the past, present, and future of any situation or event in the moment. You see the creation of life, from its beginning to the end.
With the natural process of life, you don’t have to strive to make the things happen, but as you go through the process, things tend to happen on its own. All you have to do is initiate the process and follow the process till the end, and you see the desired result out of the process.
To become one with the natural process of life, you have to observe both the world internal as well as external. You have to observe the changes that the internal world goes through, due to the influence of the external world and observe how the internal changes influence the external world.
Life is not limited to the external as well as internal reality, and you have much more to explore with life at a subtle level. You can explore the subtle level, only if you become familiar with the changes of both the external as well as internal world.
The way science goes on exploring the atoms and every time comes up with a different truth, in a similar way, when you explore the subtle reality, beyond the surface of the mind, you too come up with something fresh every day, that can give you a deeper understanding of both the external as well as internal world.
The natural process of life follows its own course and has nothing to do with the life that you manifest in the outside world. When you consciously connect with the natural process of life, you create your daily life according to the natural ways of life.
You don’t follow the ways of your mind; rather you follow the natural process of life. With the mind, life remains limited to the desires, but when you live with the natural ways of life, you live to serve the moment, without worrying about the past or the future.
To connect with the natural ways of life, you have to create your daily schedule, if you don’t follow one. Once you have your daily schedule, you have to follow your daily schedule on an everyday basis, and observe it closely.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your schedule and stay open for the necessary changes required to your daily schedule. It’s only by observing your daily schedule of life and understanding different changes with it; you can understand the natural ways of life.
Just by observing and understanding your daily schedule will not do, but you have to participate in life with your body and mind. Each day you have to have something in your daily schedule where your actions trigger your body and mind.
Unless you consciously keep your body and mind active on a daily basis, you cannot become one with the natural process of life. The natural process of life works with the body and mind, and the body and mind have to be prepared for the natural ways of life.
Everyone wants to remain happy all the time but nobody wants to work on the cause of their suffering. When we experience the external reality, it appears that the cause of the suffering exists outside, but that’s not the case.
The cause of all the suffering exists inside, and unless we consciously work on the cause of our pain and suffering, we can never get rid of the pain and suffering.
Happiness is the absence of pain and suffering, but the people go other way round. They search for the happiness but don’t look for the ways to remove the pain and suffering from their lives.
Life is a joyous ride if you become one with it. If you separate yourself from the actual reality and live by your own ideas and beliefs, you call for your own suffering.
All the efforts have to be made in understanding the ways of life and become one with it, and for that, you don’t have to move far away, but start observing your daily life. It’s your daily life that contains the seed of the truth, provided you consciously connect with it, and improve upon it on a daily basis.
Don’t remain caught up with the outside reality but spend some time to understand your inner reality as well.
It’s only when you get familiar with both the external as well as the internal world, you understand the life that works as a whole, with its cause and effect. Here the effect lies in the outside world, while the cause exists in each of us.
