In the real surrender, you don’t exclude anything, you include everything.
You just experience the WHOLE. Surrender involves dropping fantasies and surrendering to reality. The true reality, the only truth, is that we are
part of the collective consciousness. When we have this awareness,
there is no room for the individual ‘I’ and ‘mine’ to rule our actions.

What is Feeling Connection? Feeling Connection means having a open space for me to enter and work inside your patterns. Each field has some ethics. Every field has their own ethics, same way in My field, there are some ethics Enlightened Beings have to follow. I cannot enter into your inner space and see or do any work unless you permit Me!

Impossible’ is not reality. It is a pattern! Please listen! Please understand! All the miracles I continue to perform is not to show off or demonstrate or my pride. It is just to tell you one statement: ‘Impossible’ is only pattern; not reality! If you think something is impossible by you, it is only a pattern; it is not truth!

Seeking is the way God in you wakes up! In the early morning you yourself will remember that you are dreaming. That is the way you wake up. Same way, seeking is the way you wake up to your reality. After remembering you are dreaming, if you just turn and pull your blanket and sleep. How stupid you are. After having seeking, after smelling seeking in your life, after tasting seeking in your life, if you just turn and loose the intensity and seeking, anything can be lost. NOT SEEKING!

If your third eye is awakened, you will be able to see without using your physical eyes. You will be able to hear without using your physical ears. Many multiple powers and possibilities begin to open. Third Eye is a direct bridge to Sadashiva where you can express and radiate Shaktis, moving from a mundane life, to an extraordinary way of existing!

~ Shiva Sutras, The Supreme Awakening ~

9. nartaka atma //

The dancer in this field of universal dance is his self of universal consciousness.
What is this universal dance? It is everything that you experience in your life. It may be coming. It may be going. It may be birth, death, joy, sadness, depression, happiness, enjoyment. All of this forms part of the universal dance, and this dance is a drama. In this field of drama, the actor is your own nature, your own self of universal consciousness. This self of universal consciousness is the one who is aware, he is the actor in this universal drama. Those who are not aware are not actors; they are played in this drama. They experience sadness, they experience enjoyment, they become joyful, they become depressed.

But those who are aware, they are always elevated; they are the real players in this drama. So it is your own self of universal consciousness which is, in fact, the actor. Why? Because he acts. The actor is he who conceals his real nature. When you conceal the real nature of your being and, to the public, reveal another form of your being, that is the behavior of acting.
So, Lord Siva is the real actor. And although his nature of universal consciousness is concealed to the public, in fact, he knows that he is that reality. Actually, being filled with that awareness of universal God consciousness, he sometimes appears in the waking state, sometimes in the dreaming state, sometimes in the dreamless state, etc. This, however, is actually his play. It is not his real action. His real action is his being in his own universal God consciousness in each and every moment of revealing his differentiated forms. At the time of revealing his differentiated formation in the waking state, he diverts his universal consciousness in the state of wakefulness. And also in that state, he finds he is playing. Actually, this is play, he is not becoming that state. For although he has become the waking state, he has not actually become the waking state and he has not become the dreaming state or the state of deep sleep. In fact, he is already there in that universal God consciousness.

In the hymns composed by Devi contained in the seventh chapter of the Tantras known as the Naisvasa Devi Mahesvaranartakakhye it is said:
In one way, O Lord Siva, you are actually residing in your own nature, and yet you have put on different coverings. Covering that universal God consciousness in one way, it appears as wakefulness and covering it another way, it appears as the dreaming state or the state of deep sleep.
It is because of these coverings that this universal God consciousness is not found.

Bhattanarayana has also said in his Sastra, the Stavacintamani:

O Lord Siva you have present in your own self the germ of universal existence from which this universe has expanded. It is from this seed that you create the drama of the three worlds, the drama of waking state, the drama of the dreaming state and the drama of the state of deep sleep. O Lord, you create these three types of drama from the sprouting of that seed which is already residing in your real nature. This is only the course of your action of awareness. Who else can act in this way to create this drama and then withdraw it again? (Stavacintamani 59)

The Pratyabhijna Sastra, which expounds pratyabhijna, the way of recognition, the secret of all tantras, also says the same thing,
O Lord, in this world which is absolutely unaware of what is existing, only you are aware. You are the creator of the drama of this universe. You are unique and the one who is actually awake in this dreaming state. (Pratyabhijna Karika)

He has established the covering of the waking state, the covering of the dreaming state, and the covering of the dreamless state because he has to maintain the drama of the universe. It is for this reason that he takes good care of this covering. Otherwise, this covering has no meaning. Meaning only exists in universal God consciousness.
So, this entire universe is actually the result of a colossal universal drama which is taking place. And who is the hero in this drama? Here the part of the hero is played by the internal soul who is also the universal soul in disguise.

16. śuddha-tattva-saṁdhānādvā’paśuśaktiḥ //

Or by aiming at the pure element of Śiva, he possesses Śiva’s unlimited energy.

In the sūtra, “the pure element” (śuddha tattva) refers only to supreme Śiva. Now, what do we have to do with that? We have to make this universal objectivity enter in that supreme consciousness of pure Śiva. You must see that this universe is residing in that pure element. There you will never find any impure object. Everything will appear to you as divine.
When you target, which means “aim at,” and then perceive that this whole universe is existing in the pure state of Śiva, in this way you will discard and be separated from the entangling energy that binds you with the wheel of differentiated perception. Instantly, you will become one with this universal state that is just like the pure element of Śiva (sadāśiva) and you will become master of the universe.

This is also said in Lakṣmīkaulārṇava Tantra:

The yogic powers which are attained with the perfection of an initiation from a great master, when compared with this supreme universal consciousness, are not equal to its sixteenth part. These yogic powers are nothing in comparison. They are all to be discarded. You have only to own and maintain this universal-I (mantra vīrya).

That is called saṁdhāna. The Sanskrit word saṁdhāna means “aiming.” Aiming and entry, aiming and enjoying, aiming and feeling, aiming and attaining. And it is not only aiming, for this is just what we do when we meditate. We may meditate for one hour, two hours or three hours and during this time, we are always aiming, aiming, aiming. We are only aiming. But we have to aim once and for all. Aim and attain it. That is what is called saṁdhāna (aiming).

The Vijñāna Bhairava also speaks in the same way:

With one-pointed attention, you must feel and perceive that this universe and your body are simultaneously one with God consciousness. Then the rise of that supreme God consciousness takes place. (Vijñāna Bhairava 36)
This is also explained in Spanda Kārikā in this verse:
For such a yogī who has this kind of perception, this world is a playground. Always filled with joy, he is never sad. Doubtlessly, he is liberated while living (jīvan mukta). (Spanda Kārikā 2.5)

Whenever, you experience past, even if you have a body, you are not alive. You may be living but you are not alive. Whenever you experience future, you may be envisioning, fantasizing, but you are not alive.

It is only when your prescience touches the present, you are alive. The more your prescience touches the present you will be joyful, alive, spiritual.

The more presence meets the present the karma patterns will be broken.

Patterns are only matter and matter has mass and weight. Please listen. Even a very very slight magnetic wave change on planet earth; slight change in gravitational force, can suddenly make so much of free space in you. If you know how to handle the free space in you, you will just fall into un-clutching - Enlightenment. Your bio-memory and muscle memory will become pure. But if you don't know how to handle the vacuum inside, you will fall into loneliness. More depression, more suffering and more feeling unknown with life.

What is maturity? ‘Your very bio-memory vibrates, actively functions with the basic questions about life - what is pain? what is joy? what is life? what is death? what is suffering? For these basic questions, if you have better and better answer and click with the better answers, that is called Maturity. Naturally, the answer your friend gives when you were 5 year old will be different, mother gives when you are 6 year old will be different, your father gives when you are 14 will be different. Finally when you reach your Guru, the answer He gives will be different. So clicking with better and better answers is Maturity. Ultimately, clicking with your own answer, experience, and the question disappearing once for all is Enlightenment.'

There is a misconception that Buddhism is a religion, and that you worship Buddha.

Q: Sadhguru, your knowing seems to be inexhaustible. Is all this recorded in you or are you just getting it from somewhere?

Sadhguru: Karma is recorded in many ways: memory-wise, sensation-wise, physiology-wise and energy-wise. Similarly with knowledge, some things are transmitted to you on the level of your mind, others on the level of your body. Do you see how once you know how to swim, your body knows it? If you fall into the water, you will swim. You do not have to remember how to ride a bicycle. Once you know how, if you sit on the bicycle, it just goes. Even if you do not ride a bicycle for twenty years and then get on to one, you might be a bit off-balance at first but then you just go, because the memory is in the body. It is no longer in the mind. Transmission is also on many different levels.

I am not carrying the burden of this knowledge when I walk on the street. I do not know anything, but at the same time, I know everything. If you ask me anything concerned with the inner dimensions of a human being, I will come out with the answer, without any hesitation, with absolute clarity. Even if somebody says the Gita is saying something else, I will simply say that maybe Krishna does not know. What can I do about it? It is so crystal-clear within me that it cannot be any other way. It is not that Krishna does not know. It is just that maybe you are not able to see what he is saying.

This is not coming from remembrance. This was transmitted in a different way. My association with my Guru was just for a few moments. Somehow, he did not even want to touch me with his foot. He touched me with his walking stick. What cannot be learned in ten lifetimes was transmitted in one moment. It was all there. It was not just about knowing myself. It was also about various technologies, about how and what to do in every aspect, with absolute clarity. When it is transmitted like this, in the form of energy, not in the form of memory or logical understanding, the burden of knowledge is not on you. This is the difference.

People who have studied knowledge become heavy with it. They become serious. Studied people cannot even laugh usually, but someone who comes from his realization – he knows, but the burden of knowledge does not sit on his head all the time. He carries it very lightly, because this is a different technology altogether.

From the days of the stone tablet to today’s microchips, it’s come a long way. The moment we started producing a book, a million stone tablets could go into a single book. Now a million books can go into a CD and a million CDs can go into a chip. And what is stored in a billion chips can be stored in a certain arrangement of energy. I do not know if modern science is working in this direction, but someday, science will come up with ways to store information in an arrangement of energy. I know this clearly as that is the reality within us. Your energy system or pranamayakosha carries stupendous volumes of information, which is so easy to carry and is not burdensome. It is so simple.

Q: Whatever you are speaking now, is it recorded somewhere in your energy system?

Sadhguru: What is already recorded is what is being spoken and what is being spoken is not something which I am thinking of and speaking. What is being spoken is what life is. It is recorded all the time, everywhere. We do not have to re-record it again. It has always been there. Whether I exist or I do not exist, Truth is; it is always there. We can talk about it if you want to, or we can just see it as it is. Do not worry, it will never be lost.

Good health is not just absence of disease. It is a presence of ease, a sense of well being. We are not mere human beings who are meant to fall sick and the get cured. We are embodiments of bliss. We were created to live with a blissful feeling at the being level all the time. This is what good health is meant to be.

Actually, your whole Fermi paradox is stupidity. I should call it as stupidity paradox. There are millions of planets where life exists, and they are regularly visiting the planet earth, communicating. Still there are a lot of tribes which communicate with aliens - I should not use the word aliens, it is an abusive word. Even the universe is a family for us, no question of aliens, let’s not use those words.

Ashtavakra Gita

4. Become perfect and the same, whether in pleasure or pain, hope or disappointment, life or death. Undertake the dissolution of consciousness in this manner.

Commentary:

This is the final stage of extinction of consciousness where the fullness of non-duality of Brahman or Atman is attained. This is associated with Supreme Bliss. This stage is also stressed in the Gita.
In the Bhagavadgita we have the statement that the yogi who beholds the Self through the Self, rejoices in the Self and experiences transcendent bliss beyond the reach of the senses.
The Bhagavadgita calls it atma-yoga or the yoga of the higher Self. The laya (dissolution) is definitely mentioned in the Gita by the injunction that the yogi establishing the mind in the Self by the intellect (buddhi) regulated by concentration should not think of any thing whatsoever (VI, 25). As in the Gita, so in Ashtavakra the vacation of consciousness is, therefore, not emptying it, but completely filling it with the Self, Brahman or Sadashiva as the abiding Witness of the fluctuations of the body, consciousness and the phenomenal world.
Like Ashtavakra, Gaudapada who follows the great master commends in his Mandukya Karika the practice of laya and complete withdrawal of the mind from the objects of the senses through the contemplative procedure in almost similar phrases (III, 4-46). Sankara's Aparoksanubhuti similarly depicts three stages of laya by means of contemplation, viz. First, dissociation from the body and the world; second, the identification with the fullness of Brahman or Atman; and third the forgetting even of the knowledge of Brahman or Atman in transcendence (124). Elsewhere he says,
“Once the mind of the yogi merges in cidatman, let not the mind be moved again, rather abide in the still and complete fullness of knowledge, resembling the full and still ocean” (Pancikaranam, 52).

(VI, 4)

Now just look into your life. You are also trying to possess more and more, whether in terms of relationships or material things. You try to expand the movable and immovable possessions and suddenly the drama ends with your death. Again you take birth in some other family with a different father, mother, brother and sister and play the same game once more.

How lucky that you are in Satsang, an environment where you are reminded that all is okay. You are held in God's palm, so don't worry about having to take care of yourself. You have been doing that long enough. Now, you are getting to know how the Universe takes care of you. Gradually you'll feel a deeper peace inside that is not easily disturbed. Your moods will settle into a natural kind of equilibrium. It is recognized that the actions and reactions, which you previously felt deeply involved with, are perceived in this space of Awareness that you are one with, but you are not touched.There is a steadiness, a depth in this recognition, and great joy arises without reason.

"The book works almost like a small program by itself. All our other titles are inspirational. This book is transformational."

From Sadhgurus first USA published Book(Sept.2016) :

" INNER ENGINEERING : A Yogi's Guide To Joy "

" ...And Now Yoga."

page 75-79


" Yoga tells us that we are actually composed of five "sheaths," or layers or, more simply, bodies. As there is a medical physiology, there is a yogic one as well. It leads us from the gross to the subtlest levels of reality. Do you have to believe in it ? No. But it is a useful place at which to start our exploration. Your fundamental area of work, however, is only with the realities that you are aware of.

The first sheath or layer to which yoga draws our attention is the physical body - the 'annamayakosha' , or more literally, the food body. What you call the "body" right now is just an accumulated heap of food. It is the product of all the nourishment you have ingested over the years. That is how it gets its name.

The second layers is the ' manomayakosha ' , or the mental body. Today, doctors are talking a great deal about psychosomatic ailments. This means that what happens in the mind affects what happens in the body. This is because what you call "mind" is not just the brain. It is not located in any single part of the human anatomy. Instead, every cell has its own intelligence, so there is an entire mental body, an entire anatomy of the mind.

Whatever happens in the mental body happens in the physical body, and, in turn, whatever happens in the physical body happens in the mental body. Every fluctuation on the level of the mind has a chemical reaction, and every chemical reaction, in turn, generates a fluctuation on the level of the mind.

The physical and mental bodies are like your hardware and software. Hardware and software cannot do anything unless you plug into quality power. So, the third layer of the self is the ' pranamayakosha ' , or the energy body. If you keep your energy body in perfect balance, there will be no disease in your physical or mental bodies. Today there is scientific evidence to show that the impact of genetic memory on the human being is not absolute. Except the fundamental aspects of the DNA, everything can be changed, including the genetic trends of susceptibility to ailments. Infectious diseases happen because of external organisms, but chronic diseases are manufactured daily by human beings. When your energy body is in full vibrancy and proper balance, chronic diseases cannot exist in the body. I could introduce you to thousands of people who have gotten rid of their physical and psychological ailments just by doing certain simple yogic practices. These practices are not aimed at the disease. They are just aimed at bringing a certain harmony and vitality to the energy body.

These are the three dimensions of the self you are aware of right now: the physical, the mental, the energetic. They are essentially physical in nature, though each is more subtle than the preceding one. It is like a lightbulb, electricity, and light - all these are physical. One you can hold in your hand; the other you can feel; and the third takes a sensitive receptor, like the eye, to experience. But they are essentially physical, which is why you can experience them through your sense organs.

However, there is a fourth layer called the ' vignanamayakosha ' or the etheric body. Gnana means "knowledge." Vishesh gnana means "extraordinary knowledge" - that which is beyond the sense perceptions. This is a transient state. It is neither physical or non-physical. It is like a link between the two. It is not in your current level of experience, because your experience is limited to the five sense organs which cannot perceive non-physical. Those who report near-death experiences are those who could have slipped accidentally into this state. Such an experience occurs when, for some reason, people's physical, mental, and energy bodies have become feeble. If you learn to find conscious access to this dimension, there will be a quantum leap in your ability to know the cosmic phenomenon.

There is also a fifth sheath, the ' anandamayakosha ' , which is beyond the physical entirely. Ananda means "bliss." It has nothing to do with the physical realms of life. A dimension that is beyond the physical cannot be described or even defined, so yoga talks about it only in terms of experience. When we are in touch with that aspect beyond the physical, we become blissful. It is not that a bubble of bliss lies within your physical structure. It is just that when you access this indefinable dimension, it produces an overwhelming experience of bliss.

But bliss is not a goal in itself. Once you touch this dimension of nonexistence, blissfulness is guaranteed. In this state, you are no more an issue in your own life. When you are no more an issue, you can fearlessly explore the beyond.

When you touch this dimension beyond definition, the impact of time and space is obliterated. This accounts for the many stories of yogis sitting unmoving for incredibly long periods of time. This is possible not because of physical endurance, but because in these states, they are not available to the process of time. They have touched a dimension beyond all the contradictions of here and there, now and then; a limitless ocean of emptiness where there is neither bondage nor freedom - an existence beyond existence.

Yoga does not ask you to work with anything other than what you know. It simply tells you that if the physical, mental, and energy bodies are perfectly aligned, you will find access to the bliss body. But your work, as we said before, is only with the first three bodies.

When it comes to external realities, each human being is differently capable. What one does, the other may not be able to do. But when it comes to inner realities, all of us are equally capable. There is no guarantee that you will be able to sing, dance, climb a mountain, or make money, merely because you want to. But making your inner life blissful is something that everyone is capable of. It cannot be denied to you, if you are willing. Once you master certain basic yogic technologies of inner well-being, your journey through life becomes absolutely effortless. You are able to express yourself at your fullest potential without any stress or strain. You can play with life whichever way you want, but life cannot leave a single scratch upon you."

Let your response be like a pure reflection in a mirror with no judgement. Let it not come from the karmic baggage of the past. Instead, let it come from the freshness of the present. Anything that comes from your past experiences is going to create a karmic chain. Anything from the present liberates.

Just like you can get up from your sleep by just an intense desire to wake up at a particular time, you can also get up from the deep slumber you have been in for so many millions of lives. If you have an intense total desire to wake up, you can wake up this moment. Kabir says so strongly,and beautifully. 'When you look for Him, you will find Him instantly.'
