About the word ‘Samsara’: In Buddhism and Hinduism, the endless round of birth, death, and rebirth to which all conditioned beings are subject. Deliverance, restoration, or elevation of the natural world to a higher, better state from fundamentally negative conditions, such as suffering, evil, death, or samsara is known as salvation.
A Sanskrit word meaning going or wandering through, undergoing transformation. It refers to the continuous flowing through the suffering of repeated lives and deaths. The elevation of this state is known as Nirvana, or salvation.
About the woman, ‘Samsara’: Quite ordinary to the outside world I think I may come across. But in my head there is a world of unexplainable suffering and bliss though it doesn’t stop me from trying. Not bipolar but not wholly polar either… Described by friends as quirky, eccentric, cheerful and yet, I sometimes feel as if I can’t understand whose perception is real - mine or theirs. Who am I and how did I get here? is almost always the question of myself to myself. I almost have who I am figured out. Now if I could just stop changing. But until I can reach nirvana as my chronic condition I will be forever Living Within Samsara but you can call me Samsara.
Living Within Samsara - The articles I write are true at the time I write them. Some articles are meant to convey where I am at a particular place. Other articles are meant to deliver a message I believe in from experience. In my belief system if we are not growing spiritually we are regressing. Nothing wrong with regressing if we have more lessons to learn. But I say this to emphasize that an article may relay one message today I emphasize and another message tomorrow I am emphasizing. These are all of my ideas - not intended to be construed as right or wrong. Just Samsara and everything that encompasses that.
In my heart I am a writer; a lover of literature, books, and the knowledge conveyed from the poets, the thinkers, and the spiritual leaders and mentors I have adopted. If you see a particular influence in one or more articles you are probably right and that’s where the bookstore comes in. If you seek, as I seek, I want to share with you how I got to where I am by way of my articles, my books… Seek and you will find what you are looking for. I promise.
