What you cognize about yourself matters, not what you feel about yourself, because what you cognize about yourself burns away what you feel about you!

Having broad space keeps you absolutely integrated and continuously manifesting life. Manifesting life is manifesting powers. Powers are nothing but ‘life into the power of three’. ‘life square’ is bliss. ‘life cube’ is powers.

Yesterday I made two statements:

Life is all about what you cognize as you, not what you do outside.
Life has nothing to do with what you feel about you or with you, it is all about what you do to others.

They both look like they are conflicting each other, but actually they are complementing each other. When you have the right cognitions, you start serving others. Serving others becomes your lifestyle. Read More

When you feel the past is great and the fear of death dissolves, you will not be afraid of changes. A being who is not afraid of changes enjoys the glorious future!

The happening of physical death, the happening of the present dying and becoming past, the happening of new birth, the happening of future being born – all these happen in the same frequency and the cognition with which you operate your life.

Most of the so-called developed countries are large scale prisons where you just concur with the established system. If you think in a very immature and powerless way, with binary logic, about your birth, death, past and future, you will live a superficial life. Anyone who receives powerful cognitions on birth, death, past and future gets an enlightened life. Anyone who experiences the cosmic legal opinion about life, death, past and future, lives a very intense life. Read More

Consciousness is all-pervasive on which the past, present, future is painted and You are the consciousness!. How much of freedom, ability you have, to breathe without suffocation about your past, only that much of freedom with ability to breathe without suffocation, you will have over your future!

Realise that the past happening, its impact and impressions, the present happening, its impact and impressions, the future happening, its expectations, hopes, ideas, impacts and impressions, are all paramashiva – ultimate auspiciousness!

The short sighted, narrow, egoistic mind, experiences the future as “yet to happen” and past as “already happened”. This is delusion.  The most powerful delusion human consciousness suffers with is concluding that the past has already happened! Concluding that the future is absolute and is going to be “new”, is the most powerful delusion! Worst delusion! Read More

Making your identity redundant means living constantly with the clarity – ‘you are your intention to be, all the physiological, psychological, neurological ups and downs are not you’,

Identity completion. Understand! Identity completion, listen to this word.

This is the most prominent, most important, first quality of Shivagana, person filled with Shiva. Shivagana means his length, breadth, depth all filled with Shiva, is a Shivagana.

Most of our problems are all about your identity crisis, not reality. Bring completion to your identity. Your identity survives by constantly creating crisis for you

The first and foremost quality of Shivagana is identity completion; means, make your old identity till this moment, the identity you carry, make it as redundant. Understand! Decide! It is no more useful to you.

Even if you feel, “No, no, no! There are 2-3 things I can use from that. I was a doctor, I studied the whole MBBS, all that memory is there in that baggage. Shall I just pick up that and leave the remaining?” “No, no, no! I was a banker and my whole banking intelligence is there in that baggage. Shall I take that and leave the rest?” “No, no, no! I was a lawyer, it means whole thing is garbage so can I take just that knowledge and leave the rest?” Read More

Life has no conflict, conflict has no life. If you have given life to conflict, if it is hurting you, just move it to the life! Give power to life continuously!

Learn the art of prana pratishta. Learn the art of prana pratishta, giving life to what you want. Then you will just live in conflict free life. Understand it is a very simple truth. I think I would have explained, this villager with whom I had a very strange experience.

During my wandering, I was resting in the noon time under a tree putting my head on a small stone which had the turmeric, all that, little puja was done on that. But I did not expect that it is worshipped by someone as God. I thought maybe some, in every village, every stone, every tree is worshipped.

In India, that is why when British put the milestones, first it was all painted in yellow, suddenly they saw in one week, all milestones have a, fully dressed, decked with flowers and people have started worshipping and everything has become temple.

In your life even though you gave power to all the conflicts after you start perceiving it, you forget you gave power to those conflicts. Read More

The loneliness, depression, boredom, tiredness you feel can never be cured by anything else other than having a Super-conscious breakthrough.

Sit for few minutes and pen down all the powerless cognitions in which you are stuck – the memories which puts you in powerlessness – whether remembrance of money, remembrance of relationship, remembrance of your health, or remembrance of yourself. That is I think worst thing, nobody wants to remember them self that is why they try to go for vacation. They jump here, they jump there, they go there, they go here, unfortunately they carry them self with them, what to do? How much you will put the camera all the time outside, “Ohh, what a beautiful destination vacation place!” But inside it is saying, “No, no I am not interested.” Read More

Can outside minds influence the individual’s mind and thought process ?

Q: It has been said that an individual has control over his mind. Does this mean that outside minds can still influence an individual’s mind and thought process? How can we control this and be liberated from anger and depression?

Swamiji: Nice question. Do you have control over your mind?

Questioner: Sometimes I find it difficult… 

Swamiji: Alright. This is the answer that I get from almost everyone. The statement that an individual has control over the mind, is only said, never practiced and never experienced. Next, outside minds can influence the individual’s mind and thought process. Are you married?

Questioner: Yes! Read More

Are you reacting from your past experiences or are you responding like a pure reflection in a mirror with no judgment ?

Karma means action. But action can be of two types. It can either be a reaction or it can be a response.

When somebody insults you and you become angry, he has made you behave the way he wanted. Now if he apologizes, your mood suddenly changes. So he is the master. You are behaving like a slave. You are a victim having no control over the situation. When somebody insults you, you are immediately reacting out of your past experiences. This reaction is karma. It is a binding force. It creates chains for you.

But a response is totally different from reaction. When someone insults you, you don’t need to give in to the emotion of anger rising inside you. You can listen to what he is saying objectively without judging whether it is good or bad, right or wrong. First you listen to him without immediately reacting. Then you respond with awareness. You don’t react from the past. You are now responding from the present.

If the other person is right, you will thank him for pointing out something to you and making you aware of yourself. If he is wrong, you can simply witness the emotion and not react. If the statement is not true, why should you react?

A beautiful story from the life of George Gurdjieff:

George Gurdjieff was a young boy of nine years when his father died. He was from a poor family but his father was a very honest and integrated person. When his father was on his deathbed, he called Gurdjieff and gave him his last teaching.

If somebody insults you, listen silently and in detail to what he is saying. Then tell the person, ‘I am grateful that you have taken so much interest in me. After twenty-four hours I will come and reply to you.’ Gurdjieff promised his father that he would always follow this advice.

In his own old age, Gurdjieff said to his disciples, ‘My father’s simple technique helped me immensely. Because, after twenty-four hours who remains angry? After twenty-four hours, either you find that the person was right or he was not.

If he was right, it means you have an opportunity to learn and improve yourself. Your awareness about yourself has increased. If the person is wrong, there is no need to be agitated because the statement has no solid base.

Let your response be like a pure reflection in a mirror with no judgment. 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.

You create your own karma. Karma does not create you. You are not a byproduct of your actions. You are far bigger than your actions.

Flood more awareness, more intelligence into your thinking system. Flood more awareness, more consciousness into your decision-making system!

Understand clearly that now you are reading this book because of all your past decisions. You decided to pay attention to the book on display. You decided to buy it. You decided to sit down and read this book now. The totality of all these decisions contributes to your sitting here.

The totality of all these past decisions is your present moment. Now, applying the same logic, the totality of your present decisions will be your future.

This is the essence of karma theory: the totality of all your past is the present, and the totality of your present is your future.

The totality of all your past is the present. The totality of your present will be your future. The problem is that we make most of our decisions unconsciously. We take thousands of decisions unconsciously. That is the reason why we are not able to connect the cause with the effect.

Flood more awareness, more intelligence into your thinking system. Flood more awareness, more consciousness into your decision-making system.

In any given moment, the future is predestined but conditionally. It will be a certain future according to all the totality of events till that time, this is the predestined future. But it is conditional. There is an important factor that can and will change it, it is your consciousness, your will.

Understand, destiny is not something written in stone. It very much depends on how you choose to respond to every situation life presents to you. Your awareness will give you the intelligence and the courage to change the flow of events in your life.

If you don’t know your past completely, you will repeat the same things in the future. If your Thoughts Per Second (TPS) can come down and you know your past as it happened, you won’t repeat the same past in the future. You will then become a karma mukta*, liberated from karma. As of now you are a karma bandha*, bonded to karma because you have not lived your past completely.

For example, your childhood always seems golden. It is the golden past. You may feel your life in college was great, but when you were actually in college, you didn’t really feel that way. Why? Because your suffering has become much more now and in comparison, the past seems very nice! Now you attribute joy to your past and if given a chance you want to repeat it. When you lived through it, did you actually experience it? No!

If you can relax in the present moment, at zero TPS (Thoughts per Second), for at least 11 kshanas, you will penetrate the time shaft. If you can stay in zero TPS for 21 kshanas, you will penetrate the time shaft and can alter the future. This is in your hands.

All meditation techniques are ways to bring down your TPS so that you can penetrate the time shaft.

It is important to understand the concept of kshana. There is no equivalent for this word in the English language. So, let me explain to you what kshana means. Kshana is a measure of time. It is not a second or a minute as many people believe.

The gap between two thoughts is one kshana. We are used to thinking of time in an absolute sense. But a kshana is absolutely relative! The thoughts of every person and the rate at which they come in a person are dependent on that person. Kshana varies from person to person.

If a person is restless and gets too many thoughts in a span of one second, his kshana is shorter because the gap between two thoughts is less.

If a person is calm and collected like a meditator is, he gets fewer thoughts in a given span of time. His kshana is longer because the gap between two thoughts is more.
