The biggest question we now have in our minds is “How can I be responsible for everything happening around me? I can be held responsible for what is happening inside me, but how can I be held responsible for what is happening outside me?” Let me answer this question. Sometimes, you may not be the reason for some happening, but if it is affecting your life you are responsible for that happening. You are responsible for dealing with that situation. Unless you take the responsibility, neither you will improve the situation nor you will expand in the inner space. So whether it is consciously caused by you or not, you are responsible for everything.

To truly capture the essence of liberation, it helps to understand the third eye at a deeper level. At present, an individual’s view of the world is only 120 degrees wide. This implies that concentrating on a specific object will require all other objects to be excluded, resulting in a narrower degree of vision. However, turning all awareness to the third eye and focusing on the subject rather than on the object will ultimately expand the degree of vision. Everything will be absorbed with newly found detail and clarity, from an enhanced perspective.
In addition to turning all awareness towards the third eye, Shiva also says that awareness must prevail even before a thought arises. Typically, when a thought rises, it is either suppressed or pursued. In either case, there is no awareness of the thought before it rises. Just as the divine trinity creates, maintains and destroys, the human mind is continuously involved in either creating a thought, keeping it alive or killing it.
It is when an individual moves beyond these three actions that he attains the state of enlightenment, of Para Brahma. Going beyond the actions of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva (Hindu trinity of Gods) in creation, maintenance and destruction of a thought will awaken one to the ultimate reality that he IS existence. In essence, being aware of a thought even before it rises is eternal liberation in its greatest form.

“There are many levels in the master-disciple relationship. The first is purely at the intellectual level, based on doubt more than anything else. Numerous doubts keep coming up all the time. You think, ‘Eh! He seems to be hardly thirty years of age. How can he be a master? He doesn’t seem to be highly educated or qualified. How does he get thousands of people to listen to him?’ You have your doubts, you are cynical. In the zone of pure intellect the relationship never happens.
The next step is from intellect to intelligence. From the negativity of doubt you move to, ‘Why not attend this program and see what this person is really doing?’ Instead of remaining with ‘What can he do?’ you move to ‘I think he means something. But I neither believe nor disbelieve. Ok, let me see.’ The intellect starts to become intelligence.
Then next, if you continue to look in, you move from intelligence to intelligence with emotion like 60% intelligence, 40% emotion. You feel that the master is a good friend. You think, ‘He can guide me a little bit here and there, wherever I need guidance. I have an idea of how my life should be, so he doesn’t have to teach me everything, but wherever I need to make some decisions, I can take his help.’
This is looking at the master as a friend. That’s what we call sakha bhava, the friendly attitude. This is like using a stick to walk with. You use the stick when there are ups and downs. After that, by and by, slowly, when you go through some serious problems like depression and low mood, when you are not able to help yourself with his words, you ask him, ‘Your teachings are great but at this moment I am not able to follow them. What do I do?’ Then he supports you mentally, psychologically also.
Then you realize that the stick alone may not be enough, that you need more support. Then you reach out for his hand and with his help you start walking again. The gratitude towards him increases while holding his hand. If you have only the stick, then it is a friendly attitude, the intelligent emotion. If you start holding his hand, he will start lifting you, then slowly it becomes emotion-intelligence. In this stage you move from intelligence to ‘intelligence with emotion’ like 60% intelligence and 40% emotion. This attitude is what I call feeling the master like a father or mother.
From being a friend he becomes a father or mother. Slowly, very slowly, the relationship deepens. You settle down and think, ‘He is not just a friend. He is not just a person who gives me suggestions and ideas. He takes me out of my problems also.’
Then slowly, again and again when you are helped every moment beyond your expectation, the feeling within you toward him becomes pure emotion. He fills you, he fills your heart. You have a problem forgetting him. That is the moment you feel like bowing down to him like a servant, not with shame but with revered humility that you have found someone to surrender all your problems to. This was how Hanuman felt towards his master Rama in the Indian epic Ramayana. He was completely devoted to Rama. A deep connection of high emotion happens with this kind of relationship. This attitude is much more emotional than the earlier one. It is a mix of 60% emotion and 40% intelligence.
Then, by and by, you move in deeper emotionally and you become protective of the master. Instead of asking attention from him and taking help from him, you want to support him, love him and attend to him. Your attitude becomes that of a nurturing mother. This is a state of pure emotion. It is the primal need of a mother to ensure the wellbeing of her child.
In these four states of intelligence, intelligence-emotion, emotion-intelligence and pure emotion, your life is separate and independent from the master’s life. You just take help from him to help your life, to enrich your life, that’s all.
When the emotional attitude ripens, you start feeling that your life is no longer separate from his. You then move from the emotional level to the being level. You feel like sacrificing yourself to take care of him and dedicating your life to him. There is a merger at the being level, even stronger than the emotional connection of a mother and child. It is a connection of deep love, without any gender consciousness. This is what is called madhura bhava, an intense mix of emotional and being level attitude.
When the madhura bhava becomes intense, suddenly you experience that there is no ‘he’ and ‘you’. There are no two different beings. You and he are one and the same. You start experiencing the maha bhava, experiencing you as the master. You experience the ultimate, tat tvam asi - That art Thou.
First intellect, then intelligence, then 60% intelligence and 40% emotion, then 60% emotion and 40% intelligence, then 100% emotion, then 60% emotion and 40% being, then pure 100% being.
This is how step by step you start experiencing and growing in the master-disciple relationship. But at any time, any one attitude may be more prominent than the others.
Everyone grows collectively in energy, yet each one’s relationship with the master is unique. That is the beauty of it! Be it dasa bhava, the masterservant relationship as existed between Rama and Hanuman, or vatsalya bhava, mother’s love, as between Yashoda and Krishna, or sakha bhava, friendship, as between Krishna and Arjuna, or matru bhava, child’s love for mother as between Ramakrishna and Mother Kali, or madhura bhava, love of the beloved, as was between Radha and Krishna – each bhava, the attitude, is unique to that relationship, between that disciple and the master. Each disciple progresses with the master in search of his reality in the path that that is best for him to progress.
When you are with the master, be completely open. Don’t be frozen. Understand that life is a lot more than logic. Let go of your logic and be completely open and aware.
When you let go and are open, the master is such a live energy that you will be transformed. You will be a new being, you will be a new energy and you will be a new consciousness.
I can say it in just one statement: you will be new! You will be ‘new’ and ‘clear’, you will be ‘nuclear’!
You will feel lighter. You would have lost the weight of the ‘tumors’ you were carrying but that were not part of you, that were a disturbance in you. Something that is supposed to be an inherent part of you can never be a disturbance to you. If it is a disturbance, it was never meant to be a part of you. So just be open so the ‘master surgeon’ can remove these tumors you have been carrying for life over life.
When you are with the master, be total. It is not a question of whether you agree or disagree with what the master tells you. You have to go beyond agreement and disagreement. When you see the sun rise, can you say you agree or disagree with it? No! It is, that’s all. In the same way, the master is, that’s all. Once that feeling becomes a part of you, nothing more needs to be done from your side. Then you have given the master the permission to reveal yourself to you.
To be a disciple means to be completely open to the master, not afraid in any way, not hiding yourself in any way, being totally authentic to the core.
Then the master can do his work on you. He will push you in directions you would never have thought you are capable of handling. He will inspire you into moments and situations you would have been otherwise afraid of. He will expand your boundaries continuously till you ultimately realize there are no boundaries, there are no limits. Then you also become like him. You too become a completely free, limitless Paramahamsa!
All you need to do is be open to the master, to Existence. When you are open, you are expressing your trust in the master. This trust is all that is needed to form the beautiful bridge between you and Existence.”

Ultimately God is beyond male and female form.
But at the Truth level form level, the last form of God is Devi.
Only through Her grace, you enter into a formlessness of God, Shiva.
In Vedic Tradition, we knew this since the beginning.

“Spirituality is a straight path to surrender worry and be free. It is a tremendous relief for the modern day man. It is a proven science. In today’s world of science and knowledge, the call of the being needs to be addressed compassionately and immediately. Spirituality is the way. Spirituality restores the cosmos with its sanctity and mysticism. It reminds man that he is not the greatest creature on the planet. It reminds him of the powerful Existential energy that pervades the universe.
It creates not-knowing and innocent surrender in the mind. Spirituality is not a ritual. It is the science of merging with Existence. From time immemorial, the first thing that all world religions did was to create a space for the Divine to become a part of life. A temple is a space to reconnect with the cosmic energy and be restful in it. That is the core purpose of all world religions. When the connection deepens, it becomes a blissful space within oneself. Religion is a clear stepping stone to spirituality.
From time immemorial, from the time humans lived together in tribes or groups, they have allotted different areas in their living place for different purposes. Almost in all cultures these groups created special places that they used only for worship. Researchers have discovered that even animals do the same thing. They keep aside a space where they do nothing but rest. They do not use this space for any other activity. Of course, they don’t know anything called worship or prayer. That is the reason they use it only for rest. If they knew they would have used it for worship. That space was to reconnect and relax in the lap of Existence. What man might miss because of the pace of his life, animals do naturally and meticulously! If you look into the eyes of animals, you can see deep innocence because they live in deep surrender to Existence.
When man pursues science alone, he becomes too knowing because his inventions and discoveries seem to be his own findings. Everything seems to fall under the purview of his intellect. Spirituality on the other hand keeps the mystery of the cosmos alive. It creates humble obeisance towards a life force that is mightier than the intellect. That is why spirituality can restore innocence. There is an immediate need to pay obeisance to the cosmic force and calm the intellect. With obeisance comes fresh intelligence that sees the cosmic consciousness as the central core of activity. Then, man will no more be afraid of the unfathomable cosmos. He will simply fall in tune with it with deep devotion, love and in ecstasy.”

“Meditation softens you.
When you soften, love and gratitude start happening in you.
Then slowly, there is no room for worry.
Worry is also a form of violence. It is a subtle form of violence.
It is a disguised agitation in the system.
Meditation also tremendously increases awareness.
When awareness increases, outwardly you might be completely involved in the outer world, but inwardly you will be untouched by anything that happens.
That is the real worry-free life.
Let me give you a simple meditation technique to drop worry and become pleasant all the time.
This is a meditation to tune yourself to bliss.
It can be practiced anywhere, any time, even continuously, twenty four hours a day.

TECHNIQUE
Just continuously visualize that you are inhaling and exhaling bliss and light.
Visualize prana, the life giving energy, going in and out of you with each breath.
Prana is energy and bliss.
It is the energy that enters and leaves us through air, which it uses as the vehicle for entry into our system.
Air carries prana into you.
Life continues in you because of prana.
So whenever you inhale and exhale, visualize yourself inhaling and exhaling blissful light energy.
Feel that your whole body is a beanbag filled with light.
You automatically start radiating bliss instead of worry and irritation.
Worry is dissolved.
You start radiating love and bliss continuously."

Why be a Vegetarian?

"The muscles of animals have capacity to store muscle memory and bio-memory. When animals are killed they leave tremendous pain and suffering and die. That gets recorded into their muscle memory and bio-memory. When you eat that, you will fall into depression for any small reason. It is because your bio memory is prone to depression.
When you are eating the dead animal's flesh, you are also eating the muscle memory recorded in it. It becomes part of you. You become prone to that pain and depression. Your husband being 5 minutes late from the office is enough to make him a late husband!"

Somebody saying no to you does not even mean they hate you.
It just means their priorities are different.
You don't have to say no to them when they say no to you.
No need.
Maturity is the ability to flow, love, whether it is accepted or not.
It is your quality of flowing that gives you joy.
The rejection of somebody cannot make me powerless.
I go on flowing.
I go on flowing.
I go on flowing.
People who are abusing you will always be there.
But YOU go on - go on - celebrating YOU.
Suddenly, the whole world will be celebrating you.

The Divya Netra meditation is done to awaken the higher intelligence in you. It works on the ajna chakra - the energy center located between your eyebrows - called the 'third eye', and connects you to the cosmic intelligence. The ajna chakra is known as the chakra raj - the master of all the chakras .
This is such a significant chakra that there is no religion that has not worked on activating it. When the ajna opens, the whole being enters into a different realm. A whole layer of faculties opens up. That is why all the oriental gods are represented with a third eye in their forehead. The third eye is a symbol for the awakened ajna.
There is an old saying, that if you die in Varanasi, a sacred city in India, you will automatically get liberated. Varanasi is not just the city as we know it. It is also the region where the vaarana, that is the eyebrows, meet the naasi, that is the nose, which is the exact location of the ajna chakra . It symbolically represents the death of ego in the liberated or enlightened state!
This meditation technique is taken from Zoroastrianism. This technique has two parts: One to cleanse the ajna chakra and the other to energize it. The ajna chakra, or the third eye, is known as the destroyer of illusion and lust. It helps open the super consciousness in you.
There is a lit prayer lamp in front of you. It has been lit using sesame oil or clarified butter from cow's milk. You may use a candle also, but ensure that it is made of vegetable fat. This is a guided meditation technique. Just follow my instructions closely.
Sit cross-legged on the floor with your eyes closed. Those who cannot sit on the floor may sit on a chair.
Focus on your ajna chakra as if to penetrate it. ( 5 minutes )
Open your eyes and look at the flame of the lamp through your third eye between your eyebrows. Your eyes may blink or burn or tears may flow; just allow it to happen. ( 5 minutes )
Close your eyes and again focus on your ajna chakra. Penetrate it deeply. ( 5 minutes )
Open your eyes and look at the flame of the lamp through your third eye between your eyebrows. ( 5 minutes )
Close your eyes; do not focus on your ajna chakra; just relax. ( 5 minutes ) Slowly, very slowly, open your eyes.”

Third eye is the last chakra and the ultimate chakra in your body. It is called ajna chakra in sanskrit. That is the seat of the will power. Chakra Raja. King of all chakras. If the one energy centre can be awakened all the energy centres can be awakened. Varanasi is the Ajna Chakra Sthala. The real vision about life happens in you when when your third eye is activated. You see the reality of life as it it.

Understand - Existence is trying to express itself through you. What you call your potential is nothing but the expression of Existence through you. When you freely allow this, you will start realizing your infinite potential. When you start becoming the fulfillment of Existence, you become flowing energy, which is what I call Living Enlightenment!

Sit and list down anything that makes you uncomfortable - people, situations and beliefs. When you dig out everything, you will understand it is just immature cognitions by immature people which you swallowed due to your immaturity. The moment you realize it's an incompletion, the incompletion loses power over you!
If you understand this one truth, the amount of time you're wasting in your life without moving towards your goal will be cut by 80%.
