This is Spodek Arena, the venue which hosted the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference. An international conference which is striving for limiting global warming and climate change. What is the practical application of the event? So far none. Most of the countries are still increasing production of carbon dioxide instead of decreasing it. And there is no collective effort to remove the excess of greenhouse gasses which are already in our atmosphere.
Writing this blogpost is a part of my Vishuddha chakra tapas. The consciousness of Vishuddha chakra can be described by the word transpersonal. It means moving beyond the limits of personal identity. It is the way of perceiving reality from macrocosmic perspective. Being able to detach from individual fears, needs and desires and see the big picture.

When moving from Manipura tapas to Anahata tapas I noticed that I have one more strong addiction, which I didn’t realise before. I had it for years but only now I started to pay attention to it and realised how destructive it is for me and my relationships. Now, when I know, I decided to write about it and remove this from my life once and for all. Same as I did with the other negative habits and addictions I struggled with. What’s this addiction I’m talking about? It’s blaming.

Two days ago I joined a protest defending animal rights. This manifestation was happening in Warsaw, in front of Polish parliament. The protest was against the plans of the ruling party (Law and Justice) which has given a sign that it wants to withdraw from some of the provisions of the amendment to the Animal Protection Act, such as the ban on fur farming, keeping dogs on chains, using animals in circuses, or ritual slaughter.

I had this post almost ready two days ago but one event changed my perspective of how I looked at this topic. So I decided reframe this post. My Inspiration to write this post comes from the fact that many of my close friends are struggling and going back to their old bad habits, which they have quit, sometimes even years ago. Some of them actually went back to those habits.
The event which changed my perspective and gave final shape to this blog was giving a lift to a drug addict and alcoholic person. He came to me at the petrol station and asked if I could take him somewhere. As I’ve travelled by hitchhiking by myself, I try never to decline someone asking for a lift. This time I had many doubts but somehow I agreed to give him a short lift to the edge of the town. He was a young man. He looked very poor and dishevelled. Dirty clothes, plastic bag in his hand. Cuts and primitive, homemade tattoos decorating his forearms. He had a small speaker with some horrible music with him, which I asked him to switch off after he entered the car and he was compulsively mumbling something the entire way.

What motivates me to write this article is being currently in a transformative process of reorganising my life. At this time I’m noticing and letting go of old patterns and conditioning. What was working yesterday, doesn’t want to work anymore. What I was used to is falling apart. In the same time the future is not revealed yet. It is very fogy. Hard to navigate and find direction. What to do now? Where to start?
This situation is related to the cycles of the Universe and happening not only to me. It is happening in the collective subconsciousness, that’s why so many of you can probably relate to what I’m writing here. This process is not easy. Many of us are felling disturbed, lost, even a bit hopeless. There is truly nothing to do. Just wait patiently for the switch in the collective mind. That’s why I choose this topic of surrender, as it is a great time to practice it. Continue reading “Surrender”
