Authenticity

One thing has to be understood very clearly.

The whole of Existence is an auspicious happening. You are part of Existence, so everything happening around you is also auspicious. This is the truth of Existence. Nothing that happens in Existence is inauspicious. Everything is only a blessing.

If this is understood clearly, there is nothing to complain about in life. If this is understood clearly, your very eye becomes a grateful eye. It sees everything as extraordinary. Nothing appears mundane. Everything appears as a miracle. Miracles are continuously happening in front of our eyes. But we continuously miss them! Only because we miss them, life itself appears to be dull sometimes. When we start perceiving them, our entire life becomes a miracle. The truth is, there are too many miracles happening around us in our lives.
If we celebrate the three things, the existence of the self, world and god, we will experience the whole of Existence as a blessing that is happening continuously. Let me explain.

When you celebrate the existence of the self, god and world, all three will reveal their mysteries to you. Please understand that when I say celebrate the self, god and world, I am not giving you moral advice. I am giving you a spiritual technique. Read Full Article

This is an incident from the days right after my enlightenment when I was in Tamil Nadu in South India.

One evening, I was sitting in a very relaxed mood in a forest. My eyes were open, but I was not seeing anything, as there was no information going inside and getting processed. There was a huge snake lying about three feet in front of me. Because the eyes were not processing any information, there was no fear inside. I was sitting and the snake was also so relaxed and comfortable.

Then slowly, my mind came down to the normal plane and I had a thought, ‘Oh, there is a snake.’ Then the next thought came, ‘I should move away.’ The moment the thought ‘snake’ came in my inner space, I saw very clearly that the snake also felt disturbed that there was a man in its presence.

Until I felt ‘There is a snake,’ the snake never felt that I am a man. Until I felt the fear, the snake never felt threatened by me. Neither did I have fear nor did the snake have fear. But the moment I had fear, the snake also got fear. It was not that the physical distance between us reduced. Just the thought ‘snake’ came in me and I was clearly able to feel there was a disturbance, a restlessness, in the snake’s inner space. The moment I had the thought ‘I should move’, the moment I had the fear, immediately the snake also felt the same insecurity, the same threat. Immediately, the snake started moving, even before I started moving.

When your ego becomes strong, your ability to connect with Nature is disturbed. Read Full Article

We need to question – ” Whom is creating the inner image in me?” When we ask this right question, our root pattern starts losing power.

Our inner image is our mind’s movement towards an object, which gets formed and powerlessness takes us over. The inner image creates pain and the outer image creates suffering. Our bodies are God’s temple to be kept in the space of COMPLETION. Completion activates our four powers. which are – Vaak Shakti experienced through Integrity. Mano Shakti experienced through Authenticity. Buddhi Shakti experienced by Responsibility. Jiva Shakti experienced by Enriching. We need to manifest all these powers by pure questioning.

First Mantra of Kena Upanishad:

keneṣitaṁ patati preṣitaṁ manaḥ kena prāṇaḥ prathamaḥ praiti yuktaḥ |
keneṣitāṁ vācamimāṁ vadanti cakṣuḥ śrotaṁ ka u devo yunakti || 1 || 

By whom [kena] willed and caused [iṣitam], does the mind go towards and thinks its object? By whom directed [preṣitam] and united with which, does the first vital life–energy, the chief cause [prathaṁ prāṇa] comes forth towards its activities? At whose will does this speech gets activated and speaks? Enlivened and directed by what luminous, divine power (by what invisible cause), indeed, do the eyes and the ears engage in their functions?”

Listen. Physical, physiological, psychological, neurological – this various levels of you, physical, physiological, psychological, neurological – this various levels of you, is inter-connected and have their own systematic way of responding to each other. Understand carefully. If you physically eat something, which upsets your stomach, you will see the effect of that in your physiological, psychological, neurological level. Understand. A wrong meal can even shatter your identity. Listen carefully. Single wrong meal can shatter your identity. You are that fragile, till you start practicing Integrity and Authenticity. That is why I say, practicing Integrity and Authenticity, is only literally giving birth to yourself. Till you start practicing Integrity and Authenticity, you are not even considered human being, because a single wrong meal, is enough to shatter your whole identity.

A one day cough or cold or allergy is enough, you will be vomiting irritation on a person who you revere and love most in your life. The person whom you revered, loved, worshiped literally, your whole life you will vomit your irritation and agitation, anger on that person, just 1…1 day 24 hour cold. Physical, physiological, psychological, neurological – a simple gas in the stomach is enough for your neurology to project your whole life is doomed, you are in hell. You don’t need gas chamber. Gas in the chamber is enough. You need a gas chamber, to make you feel life is hell. Gas in the chamber is enough. Little bit of gas in the chamber is enough. Read Full Article

What is your reality?  Your perception about you, your perception about what you feel as you and what you project yourself to others and what others are expecting about you. When you practice authenticity naturally you have to develop what you feel as you continuously.
How to develop?  The only way to develop your inner identity about you is integrity. With more and more and more integrity you will be purifying your inner image more and more. When you take the responsibility to fulfill others expectation about you more and more, you become more and more responsible.
Understand, when you start practicing authenticity, your integrity and responsibility automatically starts happening and you can’t give up on you, you have to continuously enrich you. So enriching automatically happens. You can’t give up on others you have to enrich them. Enriching others automatically happens.
Every day, continuously by developing your integrity improve the identity you carry about you.
Many teachers tell you how much ever you listen unless you practice it won’t help you. I tell you how much ever you try to practice, unless you listen, it won’t help you.

Just like a film kept in front of the projector light is seen as a reality in the screen, mamakara kept in front of the consciousness is seen as a reality in the life. Authenticity expands the mamakara. Authenticity transforms the slide kept in front of the projector. So, naturally that transforms.
When you start working on authenticity constantly every day you are reminded of expanding your mamakara – what you perceive as you, what you experience as you, what you feel as you. When you expand continuously what you feel as you, what you perceive as you; when you are working on what you perceive as you, I tell you so much miraculous changes will happen the way you experience your reality. Life will change; how the life responds to you will change, how you perceive the life will change, everything will change!
With authenticity every day you have to work on your inner image. I tell you, working on your inner image is excitement. Thinking you cannot change your inner image anymore is boredom. As long as you are interested in developing your inner image you continue to have life even if your body drops. The day you decide you can’t develop your inner image anymore you are dead even your body is functioning.
