Religion is the secret of life. It teaches us to love, to serve, to forgive, to endure, and to interact with our brothers and sisters with empathy and compassion. Advaita (non-duality) is a purely subjective experience. But in daily life it may be expressed as love and compassion. This is the great lesson taught by the great saints and sages of India, the exponents of Sanatana Dharma.

The truth “I exist” is self-evident. You may deny God by saying, “God is just a belief,” but existence cannot be refuted. That existence, that Cosmic Power, is God. God has no separate hands, legs, eyes, or body, other than our own. He moves through our hands, He walks with our legs, He sees through our eyes, and it is He who beats within the heart of each one of us.

"You are the harmony within which all things move. They are just illusion."
"The game is not set. There are so many layers that it is being perceived on. As your own consciousness becomes more refined, the game changes."
"You are the light of consciousness and also the witness of this light. You are pure awareness."
"Everything takes you back to yourself. When you get there, you know you never left. You only dreamt you left. You have never been other than that. You are only dreaming due to the idea of 'I am the body.'"

Do not think you're so important that
you have to overcome a problem.
That is all you're doing
when you think you have a problem to overcome.
It makes you feel important.
I've got to solve this problem, I've got to overcome this situation.
As if 'I' is somebody important.
'I' doesn't exist.
If 'I' doesn't exist neither does your problem.
You know by now that your problem exists
because you believe in your 'I'.
When you realize 'I' does not exist everything disappears.
This is what I mean when I tell you sometimes, there are no problems, there never were any problems and
there never will be any problems.
But as soon as you begin to think there are problems.
Even while you're sitting here listening to me,
if you allow your mind to think doesn't a problem come up in your life that you're thinking about,
that you think is so important at the present time?
But if you were spontaneous and live in the eternal present,
the eternal now, forget about the past,
don't worry about the future but live in this particular second,
in this second there are no problems.
If you can only stay in this split second, no-one is hungry,
no-one is ill, no-one is in need, no-one is suffering.
As you begin to stay in that split second, this split second expands into a minute, into two minutes,
into ten minutes and as you abide in it, it turns into eternity.
You are always in that split second where nothing is happening.
Where no thing is taking place.
That split second is bliss, pure intelligence,
absolute reality and you are that.
So again, it begins when you get up in the morning.
You observe the 'I'.
You watch yourself thinking I got up, I just woke up.
But now here's the catch, do not allow the 'I' to go any further.
As soon as you watch yourself saying, "I just woke up".
Try to catch yourself and ask yourself the question,
"Who is the 'I' that just woke up?"
For in that split second prior to awakening you were in bliss,
no thoughts.
But as soon as you begin to think of the 'I',
the world comes into play.
In that split second before I came along you were awake.
Yet there was no world, there were no people,
there was no universe, there were no problems.
In that split second.
But as soon as you began to think of 'I' your troubles began.
Because you're thinking about the day, I'm hungry,
I have to take a shower.
I have to get dressed and I begins to do its mischief.
That is why it's very important to observe the 'I' coming out.
If you can really observe it you will see that the 'I' is coming out of your spiritual heart on the right side of your chest.
But a funny thing will happen.
As you observe it, it will go back, isn't that interesting?
As you observe the 'I' or as you question it,
"Where did the 'I' come from?"
It will stop.
It will stop its procedure, it will stop its journey to the brain where you become body conscious.
All these things happen in a split second.
So you have to be aware, you have to be alert, you have to watch for it.
I admit it takes some effort in the beginning but it's well worth it.
Think about this again.
Just before you awaken to the 'I',
you are already awake in that split second.
In that split second there is no world but you are awake,
you are conscious, you're totally happy, you're totally self-realized in that split second.
But then the 'I' begins its journey from the heart to the brain.
Now if you can observe the 'I' and question its authority, it will lose its momentum and slow down.
And begin to return to the heart.
If you can get it to return to the heart,
you will be conscious but you will be liberated.
You will go about your business like you always do.
You will take your shower, you will eat your breakfast,
it will all happen spontaneously.
There will be no thoughts.
The only experience you will have is total bliss.
Total happiness,
total joy and yet your body will go about it's business.
It can happen all at once or it can take time.
But it's worth the effort isn't it? Even if it takes you a lifetime,
at least you will be free at that time.
What is more important than this?
Can anything be more important than this?
This guarantees that you do not return to this earth.
It guarantees that while you are alive in your body, so-to-speak, you will be a jivan-mukta, self-realized in the body.
This is your only salvation.
But you've got to do it.
These teachings used to be handed out by the Rishis from mouth to mouth to explain it.
It is most difficult to comprehend the books.
Even though some of them are very clear...
(tape break then Robert continues)
...something within that knows what to do to make it happen.
But if you try to understand with your brain, with your head,
you will forget.
And when tomorrow morning comes you will get up
and your 'I' will take over immediately.
You will say I'm late for work, I'm in a hurry, I'm this and I'm that and you will forget everything we're talking about this evening.
But if you are listening with your heart, when tomorrow morning comes you will spontaneously be able to catch yourself.
I will repeat again how to do this.
When you first open your eyes,
in that split second you are conscious.
The 'I' has not risen yet,
but remember it's all happening in a second.
So you've got to be aware, you've got to be awake, intelligent.
Watch and you will notice that the 'I' begins very faintly and becomes stronger.
You can shout out, "Who are you?"
That's the same as saying, "Who am I?"
Who gave you permission to awaken?
Observe, watch.
The 'I' will begin to lose momentum.
The 'I' will become weaker and weaker.
The way it usually happens with people, with most people, is they're able to catch it for maybe a few seconds and then the 'I' will take over completely.
Do not be disappointed, that is the worst thing you can do.
It has taken most people years,
centuries perhaps to go all the way.
Be happy with what you've got.
But as you begin to do this practice diligently,
everyday, that split second where you observe the 'I',
will expand into a full second,
into two-seconds,
into three-seconds.
In other words for those three-seconds
you will be self-realized to an extent.
You will be conscious, period.
You will not be conscious of this or that, you will be conscious.
And you will feel something you never felt before, a joy.
You will know you're on the right track.
Then when the 'I' takes over completely you can get up and go about your business and ask yourself, "Who am I?
What is the source of the 'I'?"
During the day as the thoughts come to you, be receptive, be alert, question, "To whom do these thoughts come?"
They come to me, "Who's me?
Who am I?
What is the source of the 'I'?"
Practice that all day.
The next morning you do the same thing.
If you do this my friends I can assure you, things will begin to happen to you that you never dreamed possible.
May you all experience bliss and your true Self.

THE STRAIGHT PATH?

Bhagavan spoke about the way in which in the old days he used to climb to the peak [of Arunachala Mountain] at any time he felt like it, and that by any route or even no route. He said only the grass- cutters knew some of the routes he used.

“Sometimes people would come from Madras and other parts and, setting out to reach the top of the hill, would stray near Skandasramam. Finding me seated there, they would ask me for the route to the hill top. When I told them the route was to their right and turned northward, some would say. ‘Do you know who we are and wherefrom we come? We are from Madras. None of your tricks with us. The top is here straight above us and you want to lead us astray.’

I used to keep quiet. They would try to climb in a straight line, and after a long time, they would return tired out, finding that all their efforts to reach the peak were in vain. Nearing me, they would bow their heads in shame and go away, avoiding me.”

To find a real Guru, a true Guru, or the best Guru, is the most common Quest of the seeker. Especially in this culture, where the spectrum of spirituality spans from devout to the atheist, from the pious to the Aghoras - the gory and the unsightly, from the ascetic to the emperor, from the selfless, industrious karma yogis to the academic Vedantis; obviously, getting one's prescription right is of paramount importance.

My response to the predicament has been, " You cannot choose a Guru. Deepen your longing and the Guru will choose you," a reality from my own life.

Once some awareness seeps into you, working out the past, working your way through the past becomes simple. Going to the river with a bucket to get water is one thing. Going to the river with a sieve and trying to bring water to the ashram is something else. This is what you are doing with your life. Your mind is full of holes. Your life is full of holes. With that you want to catch something. What can you catch? You put whatever grains through the sieves only to catch impurities, isn't it ? That is what you catch, nothing worth while in life. Whether you have one hole or one hundred holes, it makes no difference. Until you plug that, you won't bring water. You'll only come empty handed.

So in every life that you come here, whether you have one hole or one hundred holes, every time people come, they go back empty handed. Nothing attained, nothing gained, you are coming and going, birth and death. Punarpi Jananam, Punarpi Maranam ( refers to the repeated cycle of birth and death.) Only when you plug those holes you don't have to go to the river. The river comes to you; that is how it is. You don't have to go in search of God anymore. The moment your receptivity is right, God is. There is no need to search for God. There is no need to search for Truth. The moment your receptivity is right, Truth is.

It is more essential than you and me. It is more essential than existence itself. It's not something that you search for; it is just that you are prepared to receive; that's all. It's not a piece of stone or a diamond or something to find. It's something that is everywhere, something that is always. So there is no question of finding it. It's just that you have to create the right kind of receptivity and it is there.

Plug all your holes and it is there. Are you plugging the holes? First of all, stop puncturing yourself, that's most important. If, you stop punching holes into yourself, the holes that are already there are easy to close. If you stop creating new negativities, new karmas, the old holes are easy to handle. Your only problem is creating newer and newer karmas. That's the whole problem, do you understand ? If that is stopped, you will see that the sense of buoyancy increases every day. Day by day, you will see that things are going up, not down any more. It cannot go down any more, because every moment, every moment here, everywhere, within you, without you - God is, His Grace is. It is just that you don't have the right receptacle to receive Him, that's all. Watch yourself and do not make new holes. That is the most important aspect of sadhana.

In meditation you withdraw from others and focus your attention inside to gain purity of mind and Dhamma energy.

Then you must become extroverted and use this energy. When you take a long jump, you must first take some steps backward. Then you run, and make the jump.

Like this, you first withdraw, observe yourself inside and get the energy. Then you make a long jump into society, to serve society.

These two steps cannot be separated.

78. For attaining final liberation, all resources should be applied. If all efforts are made, with full compassion and one-pointed mind, then one does not need any other means.
79. If there is no strong determination, no matter if thousands of means are applied, it will be of no use. Therefore, firm determination is the prime means.
80. “No matter what happens, we have to accomplish it.” This determination is the only way. Those who are endowed with this great quality attain freedom.
81. Depending on his strength, purity, and determination, the practitioner attains freedom in a few days, months, or years, or in the next life.
82. There are many impurities in the mind that disturb and defeat the seekers efforts. Because of this, they are born again and again into this terrible world.
83. The first impurity is lack of faith. The second is the desire to gratify the senses. The third is inertia. In this way, in brief, there are three categories of impurities.
84. Three are two types of obstructions. One is doubt and the other is hallucination. The thought “Is there anything like moksa?” is doubt, the first obstruction.
85. The second obstruction is not acknowledging bondage; therefore freedom is not needed. Both are serious obstructions in sadhana.
86. With strong determination, both of these obstacles can be removed. Complete freedom from them is obtained only when the cause of these obstructions is uprooted. There is no other way.
87-88. Non-belief and thinking contrary to the sayings of the scriptures are the two main causes. If they are discarded and logic is applied according to the scriptures, then this twofold obstruction can be removed. After its removal, strong faith arises. By removing these barriers, freedom is attained.
89. Desire to enjoy worldly objects creates an obstacle to listening to the teacher, because one whose mind is filled with desire cannot comprehend the truth.
90. When the mind is preoccupied, it is just like being blindfolded. Such a student is always preoccupied with the desired object. He does not see things placed in front of his eyes or hear words spoken into his ears.
91. For one whose mind is filled with the enjoyment of the objects of the world, listening to the sayings of the scriptures is in vain. With the help of non-attachment, one can control such a mind.
92. There are thousands of impure desires. Strongest among them is kama, the desire to enjoy. After destroying this desire, all impurities are removed.
93. Therefore, with the help of non-attachment, one must eliminate his desire for sense-gratification. The idea “I should posses it” should be eliminated.
94. Desire remains predominant in the objects one can obtain and remains subtle in those which are difficult to obtain. In this way all expectations can be shunned by practicing vairagya, non-attachment.
95. The main cause of desire lies in brooding, with the expectation of obtaining the desired objects. When non-attachment is practiced, such desires are destroyed.
96-97. Inertia is the third impurity of mind. O sages, it is not possible to remove it without the help of practice. Because of inertia, all the potentials of the sadhakas are destroyed.
98. To obtain freedom from that inherent inertia, devotion to the absolute alone is the way. Through devotion and dedication, this inherent habit pattern can be modified.
99. If those who suffer on account of this inertia apply all their resources in devotion to the absolute according to their ability, they receive the fruits either in this lifetime or the next.
100-102. All spiritual practices have only one goal, and that is to attain me. One who with pure heart and mind devotes himself to me crosses all barriers and attains bliss. It is I who motivates intelligence.
103-105. Therefore, O seers, the main requirement for sadhana is strong determination, and one who has that is a higher sadhaka. Among them, he who is endowed with devotion toward me is the most revered. Perfection means considering the body to be non-self and centering one's awareness in the self. This is called siddhi, perfection.
106. People have not realized their pure self. That is why they are caught in the round of births and deaths and go to their destruction.
107-108. Therefore those practitioners who identify pure consciousness, through which all objects are illumined, alone remove all the impurities. Those purified ones remain absorbed in that realization. Powers such as traveling through space and of attaining anima siddhi are not really attainments. That which liberates the aspirant is attainment in reality.

Don’t worry about anything at all.
You are not here by accident.
This form is just a costume for a while.
But the one who is behind the costume,
this one is eternal. You must know this.
If you know this and trust this,
you don’t have to worry about anything.
This world is so full of love.
And your heart, your being,
is so full of love, so full of peace.
You don’t have to go
to some place else to find peace.
It is right where you are.

16.13 They think: This has been gained by me today; I shall fulfill this desire; I have this much wealth and will have more wealth in the future;
16.14 That enemy has been slain by me, and I shall slay others also. I am the Lord. I am the enjoyer. I am successful, powerful, and happy.
16.15 I am rich and born in a noble family. Who is equal to me? I shall perform sacrifice, I shall give charity, and I shall rejoice. Thus deluded by ignorance,
16.16 Thus confused by various anxieties and caught in a net of illusions, one becomes too deeply attached to sensory pleasures and falls into hell.
“Krishna does not let go. He wants Arjuna and mankind to understand how deeply the human psyche is damaged by the ego.
Shankara defines ahara or food, in one of his commentaries, to mean all sensory inputs, whereas traditionally ahara is translated as food. Food, as we normally understand it, is what the mouth consumes. This is the sustenance upon which the physical body feeds and grows. Many live only to eat, but a few aware ones eat only enough to sustain them, so that they can live.
Every sensory organ has its own ahara, inputs, upon which it feeds. Based on these inputs, the eye, ear, tongue, nose and skin develop their desires and convey these desires to the body-mind system. Control of these senses and the desires that they weave is what Sage Patanjali prescribed as pratyahara, one of the eight methods of his Ashtanga Yoga.
Pratyahara is not suppression of the senses. Pratyahara is not starving the senses. Just as we need to eat in order to live, the senses need inputs to function. However, these inputs can be regulated so that the fantasies they weave are kept in control.
The average human is led by his senses; he does not lead his senses. His karmendriya, the organs of action that are responsible for movements are driven by these senses without the need for input from the conscious mind. Instinctively, they avoid pain and welcome pleasure.
We are driven by comparison and envy. We are not merely fulfilling our needs, we are actually fulfilling other people’s wants and desires. From childhood, we are taught to grab. Nothing we have is enough. Nothing fulfills us. Until death, we are driven by greed.
In our second-level program, called the Nithyananda Spurana Program, NSP or Life Bliss Level 2, participants are led through a meditation on desires. They write everything they have always wanted. They sometimes write pages of desires. They are asked to remember these. They are then led through a meditation and at the end of the meditation, they are asked to recollect all the desires they wrote.
To their surprise, they recollect only a few. Those that they recollect are mostly those that benefit people at large, rather than them alone. The meditation process is designed to dissolve samskaras, the accumulated unfulfilled desires. What remain are the original desires with which one is born. These are called prarabdha karma, desires with which we assume our present bodies.
Our body-mind system carries within it the energy required to fulfill the desires that we were born with. Nature, as Mahavira and other great masters have said, brings us into this world having already made sure that all our needs will be fulfilled. However, we develop wants and desires that we borrow from others; these are not our needs.
People are surprised that over time, they lose interest in the drive to have more material possessions after this shift. It no longer makes sense to them. They develop a sense of detachment. At the same time, they find that what they really want happens, without effort on their part. Ask our healers who must go through NSP before I ordain them as healers. They have become less greedy, less judgmental, less negative, and more focused on others. Yet they find that things happen the way they want them to, even though they only spend a fraction of the time they used to on chasing material possessions.
Many Nithya Healers graduate into accaryas or teachers and into organizers the of Nithyananda Mission activities. They spend more and more time on the mission, and less and less time on their own work. People are amazed to see that with much less time or effort invested, they do better at work and their businesses and their careers!
This is no surprise to those who understand the way Existence works. Existence is waiting to shower us with all that we need. The problem is that we never stop to understand what we need. After doing these programs and becoming healers, these people spend more time meditating and being aware of who they are. They develop an understanding of their real needs. It is no longer necessary to run after empty wants. What they need comes to them; their needs follow them.
Once we move from the ‘me’ focused demonic state into the ‘you’ based divine state, we no longer need to worry about creating wealth, developing a power base, establishing relationships or whatever else we have focused attention upon all our lives. Existence takes care of all that we really need.”

“O Rama, you have reached that state of satva and your mind has been burnt in the fire of wisdom. What is that wisdom? It is that the infinite Brahman is indeed the infinite Brahman, the world appearance is but an appearance whose reality is Brahman. The appearance (for instance, your body as ’Rama’) is insentient, is unreal; its reality is the reality of its substratum which is consciousness. Why then do you grieve? However, if you feel that all this is consciousness, there need not arise in you the notions of diversity. Recollect your essential nature as the infinite consciousness. Abandon the notions of diversity. You are what you are: nay, not even that as a concept, but beyond it you are the self-luminous being. Salutations to you, O cosmic being that is infinite consciousness.
That which is known as Rama is in truth the magnificent and infinite ocean of consciousness in which numerous universes appear and disappear like ripples and waves. Remain in a state of total equanimity. You are like infinite space. Fire is inseparable from heat, fragrance from lotus, blackness from collyrium, whiteness from snow, sweetness from sugarcane and light from a luminary. Even so, experiencing is inseparable from consciousness. Even as waves are inseparable from the ocean, the universes are inseparable from consciousness.
Experiencing is not different from consciousness, the ego-sense is not different from experiencing, the jiva is not different from ego-sense and the mind is not different from the jiva (not different or inseparable). The senses are not different from the mind, the body is not different from the senses, the world is not different from the body, and there is nothing but this world. This catalogue of dependent categories has existed for a very long time; yet this has neither been set in motion by anyone, nor can we say whether it has existed for a very long or very short time. The truth is, O Rama, that all this is nothing else but the self-experiencing of the infinite.
There is emptiness in the empty, Brahman pervades Brahman, the truth shines in the truth and fullness fills fullness. The wise man, though functioning in this world, does nothing, for he seeks nothing. Even so, O Rama, remain pure at heart like space, but outwardly engage yourself in appropriate action; in situations which could provoke exultation or depression, remain unaffected by them like a log of wood. He who is friendly even to one who is about to murder him, is a seer of truth. Adoration of one who has not thus risen above likes and dislikes (raga and dvesa) is futile effort. Only he who is free from egoistic or volitional activity and who is utterly non-attached to anything here, is liberated: even if he should destroy the world, he does nothing.
He in whom all concepts and habitual tendencies have ceased has overcome all mental conditioning and bondage. He is like a lamp which is not fed with oil.
You have listened intently to my words, and on account of that the veil of ignorance has been lifted in you. Even ordinary human beings are profoundly influenced by the words of their family preceptor: how then can it be different in one who possesses an expanded vision, as you do?”

“Our true nature is bliss. However, negativity fills much of our lives. This leads to suffering. We then wonder why we are unhappy. We can control anger and depression by meditation. Just by meditating on the seven chakras that are in our body, and the individual consciousness, we can remove negativity and control the mind.
We are like an onion. A human body is made of many energy layers. Just like we peel an onion layer by layer, we need to explore the emotional and energy layers of our body. Let us peel away all the layers of the onion. What do we find inside? Emptiness. The onion, which looks solid and feels solid, when opened layer-by layer, reveals its emptiness. It is just empty within. Similarly, we each think that we are our mind and body. But when we begin to peel the layers of individual identity, we find nothing inside. What we’ll find therein is the Collective Consciousness. We term this Divine, God or whatever name we wish to give something that is beyond us and which we do not understand.
Remember always that we are much more than our body mind. We are all interconnected and connected to a vast energy source. We are not individual islands but a collective ocean. This truth will help us to prevent the anger or depression. The Collective Consciousness is an experience. It can be taught. This science is unfortunately no longer taught. The education system designed and developed by the ancient sages of the East, called the gurukulam system, is no longer widely available. It has been replaced by a mindless system of competitive race for self destruction termed as education. That’s why we suffer despite being educated. In childhood when we are taught that we’re separate from others. In school, we’re taught that we should be better than others. Then, as adults, we’re taught to compete and destroy others. This is totally wrong. This is completely foolish. The truth is that we are all one. We each mirror the Collective Consciousness. We have lost touch with this truth. That’s why I conduct Life Bliss Programs all over the world. If we re-educate ourselves and change the way we educate our children, different from the way we have educated ourselves, without judgment, without comparison, without competition, with our focus only on learning about the truth, and experiencing the truth, we can learn to live without suffering. We can transform ourselves as well as the world we live in. We can be in bliss, Nithyanandam.”

If you give yourself one complete minute of focused presence, to simply stop; even to listen to your heart beating, it will take you out of your head and introduce you to the moment which is complete in itself. It is not on the way to another moment. It is not a bridge to another opportunity. It is the timeless perfection. So stop and sink into this timeless moment.

Евангелии от ессеев

Мы рассматриваем Иисуса (Радомира) как возможную историческую личность, духовного наставника, который жил в прошлом.

«Евангелии от ессеев»:

И следующей была дана заповедь: «Не убий», ибо жизнь дается каждому от Бога, а то, что дано Богом, человек не может отнять. Ибо истинно говорю вам, от одной Матери происходит все живое на земле. И потому тот, кто убивает, убивает брата своего. И от него Мать Земная отвернется и отнимет свою грудь, дающую жизнь. И ангелы ее будут сторониться его, Сатана же найдет обитель свою в теле его. И плоть убитых зверей в его теле станет его собственной, могилой. Ибо истинно говорю вам, кто убивает - убивает самого себя, а кто ест плоть убитых зверей - ест тела смерти. Ибо в крови его каждая капля их крови превращается в яд, в его дыхании их дыхание превращается в зловоние, в его плоти их плоть - в гнойные раны, в его костях их кости - в известь, в его внутренностях их внутренности - в гнилье, в его глазах их глаза - в пелену, в его ушах уши их - в серную пробку. И смерть их станет его смертью.

Но я говорю вам, не убивайте ни людей, ни зверей, ни то, что станет пищей вашей. Ибо если вы принимаете живую пищу, она наполняет вас жизнью, но если вы убиваете свою пищу, мертвая пища убьет также и вас. Ибо жизнь происходит только от жизни, а от смерти всегда происходит смерть. Ибо все, что убивает вашу пищу, также убивает и ваши тела. А все, что убивает ваши тела, убивает также и ваши души. И тела ваши становятся тем, что есть пища ваша, равно как дух ваш становится тем, что есть мысли ваши. Потому не принимайте в пищу ничего, что было разрушено огнем, морозом или водой. Ибо обгоревшая, сгнившая или замороженная пища также сожжет, разложит или обморозит ваше тело. Не уподобляйтесь глупому землепашцу, который засеял свою землю проваренными, замороженными и сгнившими семенами. И когда пришла осень, ничего не уродилось на полях его. Огромно было его горе. Но будьте подобны землепашцу, который засеял свое поле живыми семенами, и поле его уродило живые колосья пшеницы, и в сотню раз больше, чем он посадил. Ибо истинно говорю вам, живите лишь огнем жизни и не готовьте пишу свою с помощью огня смерти, который убивает вашу пищу, ваши тела и также ваши души.
- Учитель, где этот огонь жизни? - спросили некоторые из них.
- В вас, в вашей крови и в ваших телах.
- А огонь смерти? - спросили другие.
- Это огонь, пылающий вне вашего тела, более горячий, чем ваша кровь. С помощью этого огня смерти вы готовите пищу в ваших домах и в поле. Истинно говорю вам, огонь, который разрушает вашу пищу и ваши тела, является огнем злобы, которая разъедает ваши мысли, разъедает ваш дух. Ибо тело ваше - это то, что вы едите, а дух ваш - это то, что вы мыслите. Потому не принимайте в пищу ничего, что было уничтожено огнем более сильным, чем огонь жизни. Готовьте и принимайте в пищу все плоды деревьев, все травы полей, молоко зверей, пригодное для питья. Ибо все это вскормлено и взращено огнем жизни, все есть дар ангелов нашей Земной Матери. Но не принимайте в пищу ничего, что обрело свой вкус от огня смерти, ибо пища таковая от Сатаны.

И когда вы принимаете пищу с ее (прим. – Земной Матери) стола, ешьте все, как вы это находите на столе Матери Земной. Не варите на огне, не смешивайте вещи друг с другом, чтобы кишечник ваш не уподобился болоту со зловонными парами. Ибо истинно говорю вам, это отвратительно в глазах Господа.

Конец цитаты.

Sugar solution can be purified by boiling it with a few drops of milk; similarily can samskaras, the impurities that cloud consciousness, be removed by the contemplation of God. Worldly people as a rule take to religious practices only at an advanced age and soon grew weary and lack in energy. This is why men and women should be taught from early childhood to make God and the search after Truth the center of their lives so that they may not in their old age have to cry out piteously: "Eventide has come, my life is ebbing away. O Lord have mercy upon me and take me across!"
For the maintenance of the body one has to earn money and collect goods; it is right to remember at all times that it is of even greater importance to cultivate and develop one`s inner wealth.

Staying in Your Own Business
I can find only three kinds of business in the universe:
mine, yours, and God’s. (For me, the word God means “reality”.
Reality is God, because it rules. Anything that’s out of my control, your control, and everyone else’s control, I call that God’s business.)
Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,” I am in your business.
When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation. I noticed this early in 1986. When I mentally went into my mother’s business, for example, with a thought like “My mother should understand me,” I immediately experienced a feeling of loneliness. And I realized that every time in my life that I had felt hurt or lonely, I had been in someone else’s business.
If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We’re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself, wondering why my life doesn’t work.
To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for myself? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you.

' When Sadhana Becomes Successful '

Question: After years of doing sadhana, I still feel I might not be getting anywhere. What to do ?

Sadhguru: It doesn't matter how many years of sadhana you do, you will not get anywhere. Not that you might not, you will not. Because the idea of doing sadhana is not to go somewhere. The idea of doing sadhana is to come to a state where you can simply be here - to understand and know that what is here is everywhere, what is not here is nowhere. Getting beyond the need to go somewhere, that is sadhana, because in fact, there is nowhere to go. There is only here ,and there is only now. The rest is all in your head. Sadhana is to bring you to a state where at least for some period of time in the day, just sitting is good enough. If you live, you are here and now, if you die, you are still here and now. You cannot go anywhere. There is nowhere to go.

Sadhana is a device. It is a method to bring you to a certain level of maturity where the need to go somewhere is gone. That is why people who are steeped in sadhana are not moving anywhere. If you travel around the world, you will still not know whether the world is round or flat, forget about knowing the intricacies of life. But if you are truly here, everything that is worth knowing is right here, because you cannot perceive anything on the outside. It doesn't matter if you sit here or in the Himalayas or Africa or the United States or South Pole or North Pole. Maybe certain atmospheres are supportive , certain are not supportive, that is different thing - but essentially, you can only experience what happens within you.

A common cause of spiritual discouragement is the devotee’s expectation that God’s response will come in a great blaze of awe-inspiring inner illumination. This erroneous notion dulls the devotee’s perception of the subtle divine responses that are present from the very beginning of one’s meditative practices.

God responds to the devotee’s every effort, every devotional call. Even as a novice, you will realize this in your own seeking if you learn to recognize Him as the quiet, inner peace that steals over your consciousness. This peace is the first proof of God’s presence within. You will know it is He who has guided and inspired you to some right decision in your life.

You will feel His strength empowering you to overcome bad habits and nurture spiritual qualities. You will know Him as the ever-increasing joy and love that surges deep within, overflowing into your everyday life and relationships.

Only when you trust the Master more than your senses, you will realize – Master’s words are true, more than your senses. Then you will experience the truth of the Master’s words. Then when Master says, you are God. Then suddenly you will realize yes! Its truth. All these days my body and mind; my senses were telling me I am the body and the mind.
