Heaven and Hell!

Christ consciousness helps you understand and transcend suffering in your universe. We suffer because we desire. Even when you desire to create a better universe you imagine that suffering is there–therefore before really knowing yourself you start helping others. Repeated help is no help. It’s like becoming a clutch for others. The true help is making others realize themselves and this is possible only when you are established in peace and harmony.

Harmony and peace are heaven. Inertia and restlessness are hell. We suffer for others in our universe because fear and desire are memories of pain and pleasure in a collective consciousness. As all bliss, peace and happiness is inside you so are there total pain, suffering and darkness too. Light and darkness play their games until duality is witnessed. Passion of Christ is acceptance of all that is–when you look at your neighbor with compassionate awareness and wish them well your presence heals them but the very same event tests nitty gritty of your presence. Memories of fear, desire, pain and suffering severe your ties with body and if you accept them they evaporate very soon.

Fear of snake/time/nagas is fear of death. When you accept life the surrender happens on its own. Moderation makes your universe harmonious and leads to happiness and knowledge. Moderation gives you strength of character to bear totality of fear and suffering humanity has in your world which is but the desire to live. When you give up even desire to live you die while living and true awakening happens. Silence is all which remains. Hindu mythology represents Sheshnaga as the serpent with many hoods who protects the head of Narayana. The harmonious sage is also protected by the supramental life-force. The fear of external entities ceases when fear of death ceases. The fear of death ceases when there is no desire for bodily existence. When you realize that you were living a nightmare so far you wake up for never to sleep again.

Thus heaven and hell alternate here with difference in the thoughts. The imaginary realms are only to guide you. Heaven and hell are as real as thoughts. Negativity is hell and positivity is heaven. You are one reality which is the witness of both.

 

How your universe collapses and awareness emerges afresh?

Everything which was keeping you fast asleep starts helping you wake up when it’s about time. If you like reading fiction or watching films it will also help you wake up as much as meditation, religion or anything else will. There is no cause for awakening or sleep. When it’s beginning of awakening you see intense suffering and effort on your part which is mostly for your ripening. When you have no desires anymore–only a great longing for peace or truth you realize your Self. Then meditation becomes spontaneous and you realize that you never did anything because yours was no effort at all–it was as if a superpower was working inside your heart all along–which was your true nature. This knowledge takes some time to get well integrated into your system. Beginning of awakening, middle and end are all contained in this moment in NOW–in the ever present. That which appears to happen doesn’t have an existence–that which is true foundation of each event never appears, can’t experienced, can’t be pointed to and can’t be expressed in words albeit by denial of all perceived and imagined.  Continue reading “How your universe collapses and awareness emerges afresh?”

Play of Three Modes of Energy!

Desires fulfilled breed more desires. There’s a story of a monster called Raktabeeja–in a divine war this monster was almost unconquerable. The moment someone spilled its blood it used to recreate a thousand more similar to the original. Then the great illusory potency Mahamaya of God created a form Kaali which is the fierce demoniacal form of mother goddess. This destructive form is also known as Nritti. Nritti slayed the demon of desires and yet its anger is so fierce that entire universe was being destroyed–then Shiva comes to the rescue of the world and lies down in the battle field. The mother steps on Shiva but realizing him to be her master sticks her tongue out.    Continue reading “Play of Three Modes of Energy!”

Guru and Disciple!

The Truth is simple–you’re the supreme soul of universe–the limitless ocean of being. The reality hits you hard when you come in contact with it. The analogy of one candle igniting another and that one igniting another ad-infinitum is apt. The reality is–there are no separate people apart from your Self—the darkness in your universe is because of lack of your attention to those regions. Your attitude is the fact. Whenever you feel negative  about anything–first adjust your attitude and accept it–soon you will find it becoming a positive experience.  Continue reading “Guru and Disciple!”

Sahaja Samadhi And Burning Of Karma!

The natural state burns away all Karma. Nirvikalpa Samadhi also burns Karma but unless you reach Sahaja–the spontaneous and easy living in day to day life–living without desires and fear–you can’t burn away all reactions. You come out of all exalted states which aren’t Sahaja and then everyday worries and fears catch hold of you. When the natural state dawns–the deletion of reactions becomes rapid and ultimately immediate in such a way that everyday life sinks below consciousness–i. e. you don’t get too concerned with mind stuff–in fact it becomes mostly difficult to bring about thoughts but all situations which need response are dealt with intelligence. Since reactions are created in being active before awakening–non-doing is needed for gaining renegade state–thereafter non doing becomes spontaneous and no matter what you do you do nothing and nothing ever goes WRONG!

Liberation is freedom from wrong ideas about oneself–because world is merely a reflection of it. When there is no fear or desire left and you consider yourself the world–you are accepted and you accept everything–flowing with life at ease. Easy is right and right is spontaneous. The noble virtue of non-doing burns away all reactions giving the ability to meet situations head-on.

Melodies From The Golden Era of Music in Bollywood!

Lyrics(Hindi)

अजीब दास्तान है ये, कहाँ शुरू कहाँ ख़तम
ये मंज़िलें हैं कौनसी, न वो समझ सके न हम

ये रोशनी के साथ क्यों, धुआँ उठाचिराग से
ये ख्वाब देखती हूँ मैं के जाग पड़ी हूँ ख्वाब से

मुबारक तुम्हे के तुम किसी के नूर हो गये
किसी के इतने पास हो के सब से दूर हो गये!

किसी का प्यार लेके तुम नया जहाँ बसाओगे
ये शाम जब भी आएगी, तुम हमको याद आओगे

Melodies From Bollywood Music’s Golden Era!

Movie: Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)
Singer: Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey
Music Director: Sachin Dev Burman

Lyrics by : Majrooh Sultanpuri

Youtube Link

This playful song is kind of title song for this film. I shared another comedy song from this film the other day–this one is more about exuberant life. Kishor Kumar’s playful yodeling and naughty yelling marks this song as well. Manna Dey’s interludes make it very enjoyable. Their pithy sayings are very beautiful and enjoyable. The Gaadi(Motorcar) is called so though it moves–the play on word Gaadi(which actually means something embedded inside a surface or merged into the earth) has been stressed.

Death and Rebirth!

You die every moment to be reborn,

The threads of memory are sewn into a rag,

Which seems like a continuous persona,

The threads are hollow and so is the rag which you carry around shoulders,

The real you is born every moment and Now is its mantra,

There is no tantra vaster than that of memories, fears, worries and expectations,

If you clasp the rock-solid reality it slips through, Continue reading “Death and Rebirth!”

Reality!

Who thinks himself separate from the world,

Let him help the world,

Projecting a question, and an answer,

You play with yourself,

The only thing worth knowing is this: Continue reading “Reality!”

Time!

Absolute is neither conscious nor unconscious because it’s beyond consciousness. It’s homogeneous, continuous and without any gaps or divisions of any kind. Words don’t reach it neither imagination does. It’s consciousness in which imagination creates various names and universes. Time and space are both creators and destroyers of perception and perception is creator of both time and space though perception can’t destroy time and space.

From the viewpoint of consciousness variations and discontinuity can’t exist without time and space. Time is change and change is time. Time’s passage is not independent of thoughts and thoughts aren’t independent of time. Time and thoughts come into existence together and disappear together. There is no possibility of infinite pleasure because consciousness is consciousness of change. Time doesn’t allow infinite pleasure or pain. Consciousness is also impermanent because awareness is not describable–it’s not a concept. It’s dark and mysterious as far as consciousness trapped in mind forms is concerned but Truth is that it alone is and thought forms don’t exist. That which has a beginning has an end and is therefore hollow.
