Only by the constant remembrance of the truth that the self is a pure reflection in the infinite consciousness does " I-ness " cease to grow

Sometimes people say they can smell freedom.
They say they fall more and more into the embrace of That which is unspeakable.
And I have to acknowledge that this is not merely an intellectual thought or conviction.
It is a deep inner thing; a felt experience in the Heart beyond words and thoughts, and yet I have to tell you that what you are falling into Is and was already here—unchangingly.
It is what you already are and no distance is involved.
Has anyone ever heard of a falling where there was no distance?
This is the fall where there is no distance.
It's the greatest fall; the falling away of delusion.

The world-appearance is a juggler's trick ; all subject-object relationship between it and me is foolish — when this understanding takes root , " I-ness " is uprooted .

When it is seen that it is the " I " that gives rise to the notion of a " world " , both of them cease in peace .

The central tone of the Upanishads reveals everywhere a disbelief in the world of forms ever since the Rigveda declared that the sages give many names to that which is essentially One ( Rigveda I. 164. 46 ) .

This leads further to the conception that plurality is only an idea and that Unity alone is real .

Though no thing exists , it is not true that nothing exists , for consciousness exists .

Consciousness cannot cease to be .

Even the denial of everything allows the consciousness of existence of the one that denies .

Consciousness of existence persists even if we think we are dead .

This existence is the unlimited Absolute

Я живу в действительном мире, а вы – в мире представлений.
Ваш мир персональный, личный, его нельзя разделить с другими, он только ваш.
Никто не может войти в него, видеть так, как видите вы, слышать так, как слышите вы, чувствовать ваши эмоции и думать ваши мысли.
В вашем мире вы совершенно одни, замкнуты в своём вечно меняющемся сне, который считаете жизнью.
Мой же мир открыт, един для всех, доступен всем.
В моём мире есть общность, озарение, любовь, качество реальности. Всё едино, и Одно есть всё.

Freedom is not necessarily exciting; it’s just free. Very peaceful and quiet, so very quiet. Of course, it is also filled with joy and wonder, but it is not what you imagine. It is much, much less. Many mistake the intoxicating power of otherworldly charisma for enlightenment. More often than not it is simply otherworldly, and not necessarily free or enlightened. In order to be truly free, you must desire to know the truth more than you want to feel good. Because if feeling good is your goal, then as soon as you feel better you will lose interest in what is true. This does not mean that feeling good or experiencing love and bliss is a bad thing. Given the choice, anyone would choose to feel bliss rather than sorrow. It simply means that if this desire to feel good is stronger than the yearning to see, know, and experience Truth, then this desire will always be distorting the perception of what is Real, while corrupting one’s deepest integrity.

GINGER

Ginger is Better than Drugs for Pain, says Study

A new study published in the journal Arthritis compared ginger extract to the common drugs betamethasone (cortisone) and ibuprofen for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

While ibuprofen is a popular pain remedy (such as Advil or Motrin), in this study it showed no effect on cytokine production. Cytokines are immune-regulating substances that can have inflammatory effects on the body, and are therefore linked to pain. In this study, both betamethasone and ginger extract reduced cytokines in comparable amounts. The authors of the study indicate that,n “ginger extract was as effective an anti-inflammatory agent as betamethasone in this in vitro model.”

While betamethasone has been used for decades to relieve pain, it is also linked with many serious side-effects, including: vision problems, weight gain, swelling, shortness of breath, depression, seizures, pancreatitis, heart arrhythmias, muscle weakness, high blood pressure, severe headaches, anxiety, chest pains, sleep problems, acne, slow wound healing, and more. Ginger, however, is a powerful anti-inflammatory that is safe for use. For more information, consult Arthritis-Proof.

Other research by Dr. Krishna C. Srivastava, a world-renowned researcher on the therapeutic effects of spices, at Odense University in Denmark, found that ginger is an effective and superior anti-pain remedy. In one study, Dr. Srivastava gave arthritic patients small amounts of ginger daily for three months. The majority of people had significant improvements in pain, swelling, and morning stiffness by eating ginger daily.

Dr. Srivastava also found that ginger was superior to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Tylenol or Advil because NSAIDs only work on one level: to block the formation of inflammatory compounds. Ginger, on the other hand, blocks the formation of the inflammatory compounds–prostaglandins and leukotrienes–and also has antioxidant effects that break down existing inflammation and acidity in the fluid within the joints.

Further research in the Journal of Pain also report that ginger is an effective natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce pain and inflammation. Both raw ginger and heated ginger were used in the study with similar effectiveness. The scientists specifically explored ginger’s effects on muscle pain.

Keep reading to discover how to reap the anti-pain benefits of ginger.

Ginger has been used medicinally for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine in India as a natural anti-inflammatory food.

How to Reap the Anti-Pain Benefits of Ginger (adapted from Arthritis-Proof):

-Add chopped, fresh ginger to soups, stews, stir-fries, and other recipes. Ginger is delicious in many savory and sweet dishes alike.

-Add fresh ginger to a juicer while making juices. It combines well with many other vegetables and fruits, such as carrots or apple.

-Ginger capsules (Zingiber officinale) are available for supplementation. Follow package directions.

-Chopped, fresh ginger can be added to water and boiled in a pot for 45 minutes to an hour. Drink warm or with ice, as a tea. Add a few drops of stevia to sweeten (stevia is a naturally-sweet herb).

-Ginger is available in alcohol tincture form. A typical dose is 30 drops three times daily. Avoid the alcohol extract if you are an alcoholic, suffering from liver disease, or diabetic.

Does love act deliberately? Yes and no. Life is love and love is life. What keeps the body together but love? What is desire, but love of the self? What is fear but the urge to protect? And what is knowledge but the love of truth? The means and forms may be wrong, but the motive behind is always love — love of the me and the mine. The me and the mine may be small, or may explode and embrace the universe, but love remains.

You are getting used to
an empty head, isn't it?
And you say, "It's so much fun."
You know why it is so much fun?
Because YOU are not there.
You are slowly thinning away.
Sometimes I say, do the world
a favour and disappear,
then you are really you!
Then the Real is here,
which is the same as your Self, and you see: But wait a minute.
I have always been here..

"A human birth is an auspicious birth. A human form is an auspicious gift. Who receives it? So you don't have to know; just allow some space for the mystery to unfold." "Say yes, don't be arrogant. Don't say, "Yeah, I have to know!" "You cannot purchase wisdom. You can purchase knowledge, but not wisdom. You can purchase pleasure, but not joy. You can purchase a little time maybe, but not timelessness. These you have to discover. You cannot control. And you will discover you are integrated, you are integral as this already. This is the discovery. Satsang is the perfect supportive environment for those who are waiting to give birth to themSelf."
