Intelligence is the ability to respond to a situation or challenge

We think we are very intelligent and so we try to mould our children to become intelligent like us. When we start this process, we first teach the child the logic of running in life driven by either fear or greed. Either he has to do something to achieve more, or he has to do something to prevent what he doesn’t want to happen. When you want something to happen, it is greed. When you are afraid that something will happen, it is fear. Either he has to study so he can get better grades and win admission in a good college, this is being driven by greed. Or he has to study so he is not left behind in his future professional life, this is being driven by fear. The motivation for the child is greed or fear, never inner fulfillment. Naturally, the child gets into the rat race and just keeps running, with no time to even look whether he is running for what he really wants. He does not even know that he can enjoy the run! He has been taught that with any other diversion, precious time will be wasted in reaching the goal.

But how many people have felt fulfilled after reaching the ‘goal’?

When you reach the goal you have set, you realize the goalpost is no longer there. It has moved further, and you want something else now! Just look in. See if you are really bringing up your children or just teaching them to be driven by greed and fear. Take a deep look at yourself and see if simply running the rat race gives the feeling of real fulfillment deep within you. Are you doing what you are doing because that is what you really want to do? Or are you doing it because that is what is expected of you by your family, friends and society? Understand, if you are living your life based on just seeing what others are doing, you are just wasting your precious life. This is what they call ‘herd mentality’ – joining the rat race because everybody else is a part of it. You may even win the rat race, but you are still a rat! Read More

Swadhishtana Chakra Meditation to liberate yourself from fear!

Step 1.

  • Remember the swadhishtana.
  • Be aware intensely of the being center, two inches below the navel.
  • Intensely chant the “hoo” kara by producing the sound hooooo, through the mouth as you exhale as loudly and as long as possible.
  • This will create a vibration effect around your mouth.
  • Allow any fear that comes up to come up.
  • If you are trembling or shaking or feeling disturbed, it is ok.
  • Intensely chant the hoo kara mantra.

Step 2:

  • Relax in the being center.

Pure greed is intense bliss or excitement. Pure fear is intense peace.

Through bliss, you can achieve. Through peace also, you can achieve. Relax into the peace, and you will see that you are completely alive!

Enriching is the amazing, ultimate, secure, showering lifestyle!

Please understand, I am defining this word “coveting”. “Kasyasvid” (कस्यस्विद्) I am defining. Anything which you take from others, which is not enriching them, is “coveting”. Anything, by enriching them, they offer, is “offering”. Understand, the whole life, all transactions, either covet, coveting or offering. Whether it is a simple smile, or billion dollar, simple smile, or billion dollar, anything, if you are enriching, and they share it, it is “offering”. If you are not enriching, and taking it, it is “coveting”. I tell you, keep your accounts free; that is the best way to prepare yourself for your death!

My accounts is free. This moment if I want to leave the body, my accounts is free. I have not coveted anything from anybody. It was always enriching, enriching, enriching, enriching. From that anybody shared anything, that was “offered”. So, the cycle of life, I have functioned in this cycle of life only by enriching, enriching, enriching.

Decide! Please listen! It has nothing to do with quantity. Sometimes, even a small stone will be stuck. Sometimes even this huge stone ball can be rotating in the water. I have seen in these fountains, where pressurized water lifts the huge stone ball, and that stone ball rotates in the pressurized water. So, when you are flowing with enriching, your whole life will flow beautifully like the ball rotating or floating in the water. No friction. All around you, life is completely lubricated. No incompletion. All around you, life is beautifully flowing. So decide, whether it is your career, personal life, relationships…..even with your body! Even with your body, don’t covet pleasure from your body. Whenever your body feels tired and you continue to do some action because you think it brings pleasure, it is “coveting” from your own body. Whether it is relationship with your body, relationship with other person, your career, your attitude towards life and world, human society, anybody, decide, from today – “Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्). “Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्).

Perception, Fact, Truth, Reality

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Whatever is moving in the moving world is enveloped by Consciousness

I should use the word “filled”. Even “enveloped” is an incomplete word. “Filled”! “Enveloped” means, something which is getting enveloped is away from what is enveloped. No!

Listen! “Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath” (यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत्) – “Whatever you think as moving in ever-moving world” – it means, “moving”, “change”, is your perception and factual. Listen! Many times your perception is not factual, your factual is not truth, your truth is not reality. Listen! I am organizing words – Perception, Fact, Truth, Reality.

· PERCEPTION: Earth is flat. Sun goes around the Earth.

· FACT: Earth is round. Earth only is going around the Sun.

· TRUTH: Listen! Earth is not exactly round. And, Sun is going around the Earth.

· REALITY: How the Earth looks, see it from Google map. And Earth and Sun both are going around each other! Read More

Visualize your inner space is the road. The nail or the thorn sticking out on the road is your fear and greed. Your car tyre is Time. if the Time moves smoothly on the Space, there is no incompletion. If it moves on the nail or the stone then your tyre becomes flat, you cant move further. So always, if you hold the inner space consciously without fear or greed you will never create incompletions. For it to be reality, go back to the incompletions created where all you put the nail and the stone (Fear and Greed); relive so when the time moves into the space you may go back to the space and same Time and relive BUT it is happening NOW! Please understand you may go back to the past but you are in present. Going back to the past while you are in the present is called completion! Going forward while you are in the present is inspiration! What you are going to do if you visualize that is inspiration when you are in the present !

Nirbhaya Dhyana – Death Meditation

Every fear you accumulate, every fear makes you feel agitated, every fear which you do not want to think or remember – go through, go into all those fears consciously neither deciding to save yourself from that fear nor having greed to achieve what you are afraid of. So without having the greed or fear enter into the fear. Naturally the fear will lose its quality of fear when you do not carry fear or greed for the fear. Greed has its quality of greed because you are greed for greed and fear about the greed. Same way the fear has the quality of fear because you are fear for the fear and indirect greed towards the fear. So when your fears are approached with fearlessness and greedlessness, the straightening out of your consciousness every day happens.

The change of consciousness from Jagrath to Swapna, Swapna to Sushupthi ; The waking state to dream state and dream state to the deep sleep state happens because your awareness is not straightened out. Either the bumps of the fear or bumps of the greed responsible for your consciousness jumping from waking state to dream state or dream state to deep sleep state. If you remove all the bumps of the fear before falling asleep you will not fall asleep, you will fall into something called restful awareness, which is recorded by the word – Turiya – by the earlier mantra drashtas. So the word Turiya denotes the state of falling into the restful awareness without the bumps of fear or greed. Every night remove all the bumps you created during your day time through fear or greed. Continous practice of removing all the bumps of fear and greed by facing them will help you to fall into the state of Turiya. This is what Mahadeva calls as Death process – Nirbhaya Dhyana.
