If you look at the world today, lies are mainstream -
Truth is a fringe phenomenon.

Seeking just intoxicates you with the Ultimate Truth. Nothing else is needed when you are intoxicated with the Ultimate Truth. Life, in it’s fullest form, is experienced. The moment seeking starts, you wake up to Cosmos!

You never know how big and tall you are..
Till you are asked to rise.

If you are true to my will
You will stand like the Himalayan peak.

The divine you seek
Will Play in every step that you take.

May you rise and show the world
What it means to be an isha

O'ishas I am in you
To make Divine a daily happening.

Your own existential experience is only one: your Atman.
Everything else is your perceptional experience.

In times of misery, you always experience yourself as being all alone. This is the ego at work.
In times of joy, you feel naturally connected with everyone and everything around you. When you are joyful, happy, laughing – these are the times when your ego is at its weakest.
In your present life, you may experience these moments temporarily. But meditation is going to take you to a permanent state of Bliss.

' Paramarthasara '

'Just as the vast expanse of sky is not defiled by clouds nor smoke nor dust, so the supreme Being is not affected by the changes of maya.'

Yogaraja's commentary:
Just as the surface of the sky is intrinsically pure and is not defiled by clouds, smoke, or dust floating on the horizon, and just as the Self also remains undefiled under all different situations, so the Self never loses its essence in different situations and conditions like the birth and death of limited subjects which are emanated from ignorance caused by the changes in maya.
The supreme Being is both the source of the emanation and the resting place of all living beings, That he always manifests himself as all limited beings is pointed out by using the word “supreme”. Hence the lord is like a magician untouched by the exercise of his magical powers who is unblemished by the modifications of self-born maya. This has been stated by my great grand teacher, Utpaladeva, in his work Ajada-pramatr-siddhi:
Although the manifestation of the ultimate Being is restricted in limited beings by the vital breath and the physical body, it remains unaffected in the supreme Being. The vital breath is also his form; then how can he be affected by it?

Spread more and more Satvic joy around the world. Satvic Ananda gives strength in your bio-memory. Joy destroys cunningness, joy destroys crooked thinking, joy destroys lack of integrity, gives you larger vision. Sadashiva Himself when He lands into you, He will create intense joy in your system, that is the way He will land!

Irritation, anger, hate, and rage are just progressions. If you feel the mildest sense of irritation, that’s what you need to work on.

Someone asked me, “Aren’t you worried about the state of the world?” I allowed myself to breathe and then I said, “What is most important is not to allow your anxiety about what happens in the world to fill your heart. If your heart is filled with anxiety, you will get sick, and you will not be able to help.”
Yes, there is tremendous suffering all over the world, but knowing this need not paralyze us. If we practice mindful breathing, mindful walking, mindful sitting, and working in mindfulness, we can try our best to help.

' THE MOTHER '

There are two powers that alone can effect in their conjunction the great and difficult thing which is the aim of our endeavour, a fixed and unfailing aspiration that calls from below and a supreme Grace from above that answers.

But the supreme Grace will act only in the conditions of the Light and the Truth; it will not act in conditions laid upon it by the Falsehood and the Ignorance. For if it were to yield to the demands of the Falsehood, it would defeat its own purpose.

These are the conditions of the Light and Truth, the sole conditions under which the highest Force will descend; and it is only the very highest supramental Force descending from above and opening from below that can victoriously handle the physical Nature and annihilate its difficulties...

There must be a total and sincere surrender; there must be an exclusive self-opening to the divine Power; there must be a constant and integral choice of the Truth that is descending, a constant and integral rejection of the falsehood of the mental, vital and physical Powers and Appearances that still rule the earth-Nature.

The surrender must be total and seize all the parts of the being. It is not enough that the psychic should respond and the higher mental accept or even the inner vital submit and the inner physical consciousness feel the influence. There must be in no part of the being, even the most external, anything that makes a reserve, anything that hides behind doubts, confusions and subterfuges, anything that revolts or refuses.

If part of the being surrenders, but another part reserves itself, follows its own way or makes its own conditions, then each time that that happens, you are yourself pushing the divine Grace away from you.

If behind your devotion and surrender you make a cover for your desires, egoistic demands and vital insistences, if you put these things in place of the true aspiration or mix them with it and try to impose them on the Divine Shakti, then it is idle to invoke the divine Grace to transform you.

If you open yourself on one side or in one part to the Truth and on another side are constantly opening the gates to hostile forces, it is vain to expect that the divine Grace will abide with you. You must keep the temple clean if you wish to instal there the living Presence.

If each time the Power intervenes and brings in the Truth, you turn your back on it and call in again the falsehood that has been expelled, it is not the divine Grace that you must blame for failing you, but the falsity of your own will and the imperfection of your own surrender.

If you call for the Truth and yet something in you chooses what is false, ignorant and undivine or even simply is unwilling to reject it altogether, then always you will be open to attack and the Grace will recede from you. Detect first what is false or obscure in you and persistently reject it, then alone can you rightly call for the divine Power to transform you.

Do not imagine that truth and falsehood, light and darkness, surrender and selfishness can be allowed to dwell together in the house consecrated to the Divine. The transformation must be integral, and integral therefore the rejection of all that withstands it.

Reject the false notion that the divine Power will do and is bound to do everything for you at your demand and even though you do not satisfy the conditions laid down by the Supreme. Make your surrender true and complete, then only will all else be done for you.

Reject too the false and indolent expectation that the divine Power will do even the surrender for you. The Supreme demands your surrender to her, but does not impose it: you are free at every moment, till the irrevocable transformation comes, to deny and to reject the Divine or to recall your self-giving, if you are willing to suffer the spiritual consequence. Your surrender must be self-made and free; it must be the surrender of a living being, not of an inert automaton or mechanical tool.

An inert passivity is constantly confused with the real surrender, but out of an inert passivity nothing true and powerful can come. It is the inert passivity of physical Nature that leaves it at the mercy of every obscure or undivine influence. A glad and strong and helpful submission is demanded to the working of the Divine Force, the obedience of the illumined disciple of the Truth, of the inner Warrior who fights against obscurity and falsehood, of the faithful servant of the Divine.

This is the true attitude and only those who can take and keep it, preserve a faith unshaken by disappointments and difficulties and shall pass through the ordeal to the supreme victory and the great transmutation.

“What form His devotees desire, that form itself the Lord takes;
What name His devotees desire, that name itself the Lord takes;
In what manner the devotees desire Him
And stand thinking of Him with unwinking eyes,
In that manner itself does the Lord of the Discus present Himself.”

'The way you behave with Sadashiva is the way He behaves with you. He is a mirror. Be integrated to it. Same way kirtan, be Integreated to it. Steps of the song will churn your stomach will put you in Bhavasamadhi. Bhava Samadhi is the only currency useful to you when out of Matrix. You will realise Sadashivoham. Doing morning Panchakriya, Guru Puja, Yoga, Satsang, Kirtan is aiming at putting you in Bhava Samadhi.'

"An onlooker tells Swamiji that he is not able to comprehend what Swamiji is saying. He tells him that he has become confused.
If life was meant to be logical, there would be only men or only women. There would be only cold or only hot. But there are both. There are always opposites; there is always a yin and yang - the male and female, the opposites.
When there is duality, there is bound to be confusion. Only when you have absorbed all confusions and all opposites, will oneness happen in you. I am not telling you to drop all confusion. I am telling you to understand and use them. For example: love and hate are two emotions in you. Now you have used both of them and a new emotion has risen in you: compassion. Compassion is both of these and something more.
This is what I go on doing. I create bridges within you between the opposites. And this is what causes the confusion. Your minds nature is to divide, so you are perfectly alright with these opposites. But the nature of life is oneness, so I am telling you to find the bridge that will connect.
The bridges are already there. You just have to look.
And I will go on creating opposites in you. If you are confused, I will make you clear. If you are clear, I will make you confused. I will go on putting you in confusion. Only when you are utterly confused, the mind will drop and suddenly there will be no more confusion, only clarity.
Confusion is a part of life. If you are not confused, you are just dull. And what will you do with certainty? Confusion is much more valuable. It means you are alive. It means you are growing.
But you never want confusion. You want certainty. You want certainty because you want security all the time. You need to feel secure. But I tell you: instead of running away from confusion, you should have the clear understanding that confusion will make you clearer.
The moment I see you settling, I will just shake the Earth beneath you. You will fall down and become frustrated and confused. The nature of the mind is to settle, but life has to move! The mind is like a stagnant pool, but life is like a river. Life is full of movement, but your mind wants to be still.
This is the reason why there is so much of struggle. Your mind wants to remain stagnant, but life has to move. As of now, you are living for the mind. So you want to become stagnant. But your inherent nature is to flow with life; to be in continuous movement.
Let you be clear: the confusion will be there. Once you come into contact with me, the confusion will come. This is because the new will start happening but the old will still be there. It will be difficult to decide whether to let the new take over or to continue with the old. The new will be chaos. The old is order. But there is a charm in the chaos, a pull. You will try to run away, but you end up running towards it!
Let the confusion be there. Do not run away from it; become aware.Once you have totally lost yourself in confusion, you will simply drop the mind.
Confusion is part of the process. It is part of the work which is done once you come to the Master. The transformation can happen only after all your old concepts and ideologies leave you. All of these ideologies are like a mesh for me to enter. Unless this mesh gives way, I cannot enter. When confusion happens, the mesh becomes so tight and complex that it has to break. When this happens, I can enter"

“Operating with intelligence is the process of going back to the innocence you were born with. It is not a process of becoming. It is not attaining something new, it is discovering your very being. It is the true door to knowing you as
you truly are.
When you are intellectual, you operate purely from the head, from logic.
Your knowledge gives you the false illusion of knowing everything that exists. It keeps you firmly rooted in the head. When your intelligence awakens, you drop from the head to the heart, from logic to love. Then, you operate neither from pure intellect nor from pure sentimental love. You operate just from loving intelligence, and you automatically radiate compassion to all of those around you.”
“Innocence is directly related to the inner space. It is in no way related to the outer world. In the Shiva Sutras, Shiva gives us techniques to achieve this innocence. If you follow Shiva’s life as is described in the Hindu mythological stories, you will not be able to see any social or traditional innocence in him. But there will be the pure and ultimate innocence. The place where he lives or the way in which he lives is not directly related to his purity or innocence. Shiva lives in a cemetery where bodies are cremated, surrounded by spirits and ghosts.
The word Shiva in Sanskrit means causeless auspiciousness.
This causeless auspiciousness, the energy to create bliss wherever he is, wherever he happens, arises out of his innocent inner space.”

There is just an ever-present joy.
It is just a joy, and it is there every day:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
—another name for the various days is Joy.
Joy shows itself when ego is exposed as a myth.
When this joy arises,
everything seen is perceived with joy,
is reflecting and radiating joy.
This joy is your perfume but the flower,
its source, no one can find.
Free of personal identity,
there remains a stillness and silence—qualityless
—a quiet space, no excitement.
Excitement can come also,
but such movements fluctuate very fast,
whereas the joy is seamless.
The joy and the stillness are the same.
The joy and the love are the same.
The love and the contentment are the same.
The contentment and the wisdom are the same.
The peace and God is the same.
The ‘I’ and God is the same.
The you and God is the same.
The you and me is the same.
Then zero and one is the same.
One and two is the same.
A hundred and zero is the same.
Everything is the same.
The same and nothing is the same.
Nothing and everything is the same.
Everything and me is the same.
God and me and everything is the same.
All are the same One.
Alleluia!

Native of eternity.
At home in infinity.
Breathing immortality.

Let these words sing in every cell.

Abundance of splendor.
Luminous energies of creation,
Pulsing everywhere always.

What could these astounding
words mean?

Meditate on them continually,
Let the impulses ripple through you.

Resonate with the all-pervading
hum of truth
And know,
Every fleeting moment is
Supported by forever.
