The knowledge which you share out of loving kindness stays with you as light even in the darkest of times. It becomes your guide. It becomes your crystalline spiritual intelligence–therefore, never feel shy of sharing out of love. Give your best out to all your friends–to all those who need it and it will come to you thousand-fold. Only intentions matter in this act of sharing–those who truly deserve light will be drawn to you and by sharing you will be drawn to them. As a great friend has said–the love is our food, guide, tracker and means of living in higher dimensions. Continue reading “Integrating yourself after awakening!”
Awakening can be beautiful and traumatic at the same time. I found ‘The Tibetan Book of The Dead’ at a time when I was going through most intense Dark Night of The Soul. I feel I experienced dark entities, angels, dharma-pals and various friends who guided me through. Where I am right now is beyond ordinariness of space-time as you–the reader is co-creating this reality to transmute the reality you’re in, by developing a serving attitude–a Bodhichitta–an intentional action to create a more loving, abundant, joyous and beautiful cosmos by being yourself. Life, death and living are one–you need to master this and keep this in mind in order to truly live and shine your light for others. From my immediate experience and recollections of wisdom I can tell that your life-situation is changing–constantly as you’re awakening. Continue reading “The Art of Creating Light in Yourself!”
1. The time and space don’t exist for you because you are absolute. You are time and space and yet beyond it.2. There are infinite parallel universes overlapping on the surface of consciousness. You don’t inhabit a universe but multiverses even as a personality. Events which happen are out there and their perceiver arises only in perceiving. There is no perceiver independent from perception. Only life exists which is sum of infinite events. Death, life and rebirth are one. All events are on screen projected by your light and exist only for a split second so all beings from smallest to biggest are merely shadows. 3. You’re absolutely free as everyone else. Elements act on elements in nature. Nature, mind, consciousness are all names for active Self. You’re that Self and yet beyond all this free from contents of all types. 4. You’re never bound–even when you imagine you’re–neither you’re free–nature and universe is conglomeration of opposites and their harmony. 5. You’re infinitude of infinites NOW. There is no perfection in future–you merely assume a goal and start chasing it. This is nature’s doing. 6. Bondage, yearning, desire, evil and good all exist in nature–in universal mind and differ from situation to situation—there is no good, bad or ugly in absolute. 7. All that you ever wanted to be you already are. Identification with personality makes you believe that you are merely a personality, an identity which is to be protected from things and forces external to it–the Truth is–you’re the only reality there is–hence past, present and future–including all identities exist in you and you’re in all identities. 8. Anything you ever imagined is possible—anything you will ever imagine is possible–is already happening in another universe and all infinite universe draw their being from you. 9. Every element discovered by you is as perfect as you’re–no higher or lower existence as far as reality is concerned—every situation is a dream witnessed by a prime mover who witnesses infinite universes moving through surface of consciousness. 10. Reality is not the reward of being eligible, fit or training—you’re always reality because reality alone is–which is both indescribable and indefinable–being beyond imagination, words and understanding. All that you understand is a pointer to your very own Self. There is no higher or lower self. 11. For waking state merely brings similar patterns as dream state–there is no difference between waking or dreaming. Sleeping is same as awakening and you are beyond all states because all states are made possible by you. You’re the proof of all isms, ideologies, sciences, knowledge and beings. Nothing could prove your being and be independent of you as well.
Richard Linklater’s waking life is a visual depiction of a seeker of reality who finally merges into it and disappears. The film starts with a young kid playing a game in which his destiny is suggested to be dreaming. The kid moves out of the game and starts floating in the air as if in a lucid dream. Then he finds himself growing up and talking to various philosophers, experts, people at random and friends. He finds himself in many strange situations but after every one of them he finds that he was merely dreaming. Sometimes he is one of the characters, sometimes merely a witness, sometimes an onlooker and sometimes merely watching a TV show—all in a dream. Towards the end he finds himself talking to a person in a bar playing Foosball–who tells him about a novel by Philip K. Dick. The novel tells about falsity of time and space and reality which dawned upon the author all of a sudden. The kid asks about the method to wake up and the person tells him to simply wake up! He wakes up on his bed and finds himself dreaming. He then again discovers many things like time, space, quantum mechanics, language, psychology, biology, society and life. Finally he finds out that he has been meeting same people mostly…and those people didn’t have any substantial reality other than shadowy personas projected by his memories, fears, desires, habits, likes and dislikes. He finally reaches to his home where his destiny was revealed to be the dream. Realizing that there was no destiny whatsoever he starts flying once again to disappear and merge into reality. Into his own Self.
David Lynch’s Inland Empire is a film with many metaphors. The rabbits are people with personalities busy in their private dreams. Their incoherent dialogues represent Karma of humanity and gods appearing occasionally represent supra-mental forces thriving on fear and desire. The audience which keeps laughing on performance of rabbits is witnessing consciousness. The girl who is watching the TV show all the time is also witnessing consciousness. The actress meets the girl in the room in the end of the film–which is self rediscovering itself after forgetfulness. The husband of the actress who is the magician represents mind with its many tricks–which makes her forget herself–therefore she traverses through many lives and cultures searching for her own self. The longest running radio show is a suggestion to tell that entire thing takes place inside space-time–while witnessing consciousness is beyond space-time and beyond mind(magician.) The witnessing consciousness in form of the girls represents various experiences across various times and places. The woman who appears in the beginning tells a tale–she stands for the negative aspect of mind which creates evil, Karma and destiny where there is none. Rabbits are mysterious and they represent unconscious mind–because Karma gets created via incoherent words, memories and suggestions. The search for mysterious and beautiful is search for dreams, intrigue and reality–but in the end it ends where it starts–in the Self–the girl finds herself. Reality is neither one nor many–it’s. The blurring between reality and film as well as past, present and future becoming one suggest that the witnessing consciousness(girl) traverses beyond space and time–across multiverses. The reality can’t be expressed in words much less via a film but I feel this film is a great attempt to paint a picture of Self rediscovering itself as beyond space-time, beyond religions and business–beyond taboos and relations and beyond dreams, paranoia and trauma. Kudos to David Lynch and team!
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.
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.

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!”
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!”
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.
