Celebrate your Self saying a deep ‘yes’ to you as you are! Celebrate the very Existence of the world by realizing it is an independent intelligence with profound mystery constantly expanding with causeless auspiciousness! Celebrate God as creativity overflowing for no reason! When you celebrate the existence of Self, World and God, you will suddenly see all these three disappear into celebration and what remains is eternal bliss, Nithyananda!

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 More

Life becomes materialistic when you expand your ahamkara and it becomes moralistic when you work on your mamakara. Unclutch from both and realize you are beyond both.

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 More

When you expand what you think as you, directly you expand what you project as you and you also expand and fulfill what others expect from 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.

When Guru ordains, He sustains!

Guru Purnima is such a rare day, when Guru accepts bhiksha and burns the karmas of the disciples. Guru Bhakti – authenticity in your relationship with the Guru – is his message for Guru Purnima 2015. To those who consider him as Guru, he declared that – “I want you to have the inner image of SHIVOHAM (Shiva I am).” Whoever does that, he as Sada Shiva, committed to give the boon of LIVING SHIVOHAM. If the inspiration and energy of the  

Guru Purnima 2015 message—Guru Bhakti. Understand, understand this word – Guru Bhakti. It is not just putting few flowers in His feet, or doing some small puja, of course, that is a symbolic representation, but the real Guru Bhakti, understand, being authentic to Guru. 

Let me explain that word – Guru Bhakti, being authentic to Guru. Look into your inner image, see how much of your inner image is influenced by Guru’s presence in your life. Look into your inner image, see in how much you are still stuck, with your old stupid identity and inner image, how much the Guru has influenced, the Guru’s presence has influenced and how much of your idea about you as you has changed.  Read More

Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha

Krishna….I tell you, Krishna is the most time-tested enlightened master, and Gita is the most time-tested teaching, because even while he was delivering, the listener is not ready to believe.  He has to go to the extreme of showing the Vishwaroopa to make the listener believe, to establish his identity, credibility.

 Bhagawan has to show Vishwaroopa thrice:

  • Once for Shishupala;
  • Once in the Kauravas’ Court; and,
  • Once for Arjuna.

 Of course, several times he showed he is divine:  When he liberated Karna; When he gave blessings to Bheeshma; and, The moment he took birth, to tell Vasudeva and Devaki, he showed his divinity.

 But, his Vishwaroopa he showed thrice.  If you see the timing, it is almost to make those persons understand who is standing in front of them, with whom are they playing.  Arjuna was so strong, continuously questioning.  Finally, Krishna has to show his Vishwaroopa to make Arjuna understand the principles he is teaching.  But, even then, in course of time, always this science gets lost.

एवं परम्पराप्राप्तमिमं राजर्षयो विदुः । स कालेनेह महता योगो नष्टः परन्तप ॥ 

“Evam paramparaa praaptham imam raja rishayo vidhuhu |

Sa kaaleneha mahatha Yogo nashtah Paranthapa || 

“This handed down thus in regular succession, the royal sages knew,

This Yoga, by long lapse of time, has been lost here, O Parantapa.”

 Please understand, in course of time, the tsunami of your regular incompletions takes away your strength of Completion and the qualities born of the space of Completion.

Please listen!  Just yesterday we handled one important situation where a few people have lost the power of Completion.  When the tsunami of incompletions is awakened in you….  Please understand, money, power, women, wealth, these all are not cause or reason for incompletion, be very clear!  Don’t beat the chair if you hate the person!  No!  Money is not a reason.  Power is not a reason.  Wealth is not a reason.  Lust is not a reason.  The only reason for the tsunami of incompletion is we entertaining those patterns.  We entertaining those patterns!  Because, the same money, I don’t see, is making somebody else incomplete, somebody else to do this same kind of activity.  So many Mahants were shocked, ‘How can people lose authenticity?’  It is possible!  Whatever pattern you are carrying, when there is a huge volume of cotton inside and the fire comes near, it catches.  If it is just banana leaf, it won’t catch fire.  So, whatever pattern you are carrying inside, that responds to the world.

If you are caught in the money, money pattern, money engram, when money comes in front of you, you lose everything, you lose whatever you know as you.  Same way, if you are caught in the lust pattern, the other gender is there in front of you, you lose everything, you just lose whatever you know as you.  If you are caught in the hunger for power, the moment power comes in front of you, you just lose everything.  You think, ‘Just this one decision I will compromise; then the power will be with me.  After that I will become authentic again.’  No!  Anything which comes to you by compromising Authenticity, will continue to be with you only if you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you by compromising your authenticity, that money will continue to stay with you only by compromising your authenticity.  If power comes to you by compromising Authenticity, that power will continue to stay with you only as long as you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you because of your authenticity, how many people ever try to take it away, they won’t be able to take it away!  HAHAHAHAHAHA!  If power comes to you, certain glory comes to you, certain grace happens to you because of your power of Authenticity, how many people ever try to disgrace you, it is simply impossible!  Impossible!

Recently I read an analysis and survey article on the Internet; means, the people who write articles after analyzing, surveying different data, the freelancers.  Of course, their articles are picked up in journals also, the print media also, the freelancers.  The article lists the people who are not shaken by the scandals and rumours and gossips, the top ten international celebrities who are not shaken by any of the rumours, scandals, who could not be disgraced by any happenings around them, who continue to be successful.  The eighth name is “Paramahamsa Nithyananda”!  HAHAHAHA!  They are stating, ‘These are the ten people, no rumours, scandals could disgrace them or could stop their lives.’  They don’t know the science.  They wrote by doing some analysis and study.  I am now giving you the science, the secret.  I am giving you the secret: If any money, power, anything comes to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  If grace happens to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  That is why I am saying, anything which happens after enlightenment cannot be snatched away from you by anybody, because enlightenment itself cannot be snatched away!

Listen!  Sometimes when people do some immoral, illegal activity, who were good earlier, when those situations are brought in front of me, this is the only reason I find – Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha!  In course of time, because of non-practice, the power of Completion gives way, and the tsunami of incompletion takes over you.  Understand, the power of Completion gives way, the tsunami of incompletion takes you over.  The power of Completion when it loses power, when the power of incompletion takes you over, please listen, you lose the very identity of you.  When you lost you, you lost everything, because now you have to be searching who you are.  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Listen!  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Losing who you are is too costly a missing.

In English there is a proverb:  If money is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if your character is lost – I won’t say “character”, I will say “authenticity” – if your authenticity is lost, everything is lost!  Why do you think in our Sangha I am so meticulous about even where you sit?  I always insist, let the Mahants sit in the front row, then Kotharis sit, then Thanedars sit.  I always insist.  You may be thinking, ‘Why?  What is there in sitting?’  You don’t know!  Everything matters for your authenticity.  Because, I have seen in Mahanirvani Peetha, the whole inner image of a person changes the moment he is initiated!  The moment he is given that seat, that gaddhi, he redesigns the concept about himself, he redevelops the concept about himself, he recreates about himself.  That is why this big….all these marks, bhasma, rudrakshas.  These all make you authentic to who you are, what you want to be, what you are, what you want to be, constantly reminding yourself and others, aligning yourself and others’ experience of you, Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, and Life Image, aligning all the four.  All these are required.  All these are required.  And all this reminds you and takes care you don’t fall from Yoga, Yogo Nashta Paranthapa does not happen in your life.  Let the Yoga not be lost.  Let the authenticity not be lost.  Let the Yoga be not lost.  Let the authenticity be not lost.

Listen!  In course of time, when people see money, when people see power, Yoga gets lost.  Sometimes, due to non-practice also, Yoga gets lost.  Means, operating from the space of Completion is Yoga.  Living and radiating the space of Completion, living and radiating the space of Completion is also Yoga.  Listen!  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Completion is the only way you can get out of the lost life.  Please understand, unable to retain your inspiration is nothing but life lost.  Unable to retain the inspiration is nothing but losing completely yourself.

Just yesterday, I was telling a devotee, ‘When life happens to you, and if you feel you are smaller, you lose inspiration.  But ability to stand with life in all its power and glory is life.  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Yoga is lost when you don’t stand to the life.  Understand, every night Completion will make sure the incompletions don’t settle down on you as a powerful layer, and, suddenly, one day, you need to wake up and complete the whole thing.  No!  Every night Completion!  Every night Completion, so that the incompletions does not settle down in you as layer, as sediment, incompletions don’t settle down in you as layer, as sediment.  Yoga…Yoga…Yoga means operating from the space of Completion.  Anything can be lost, but not Yoga.  When you allow the incompletions to take over, when the incompletions become more and more powerful, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly but steadily, Yoga is lost.

I tell you, your every-day action is responsible either for extraordinary miracle or extraordinary accident.  Neither miracle nor accident happens over a second.  Neither miracle nor accident happens just like that.  No!  Whether it is the going up or going down, it happens because of your every-day activity.  Nothing comes as surprise, nothing comes as sudden.

Listen!  Listen!  Completion….every day when you practice Completion and fall asleep, your whole night Dreaming and Deep Sleep state aligns your unconsciousness to your life, to your authenticity.  Every day your Deep Sleep and Dream state supports you, supplying extraordinary powers to you, the next day to be more authentic.  Understand, unknown part of you is extraordinary powers of you.  If you take the blessings and support of the unknown part of you, it is extraordinary powers’ space.  Every night when you complete and fall asleep, the power of Completion, next day morning when you wake up you are there alive, your unconscious and sub-conscious supporting you to be more and more authentic….to be more and more authentic.  It is Authenticity, it is Authenticity that is life.  Authenticity, that is life, understand!

Bring Authenticity to your life.  It is Authenticity that is life.  Practice Completion continuously, and don’t lose living out of Completion, don’t lose your Authenticity, don’t lose your Authenticity.  It is unfortunate, human-beings lose their Authenticity, in course of time their inspiration, energy for Completion, to live in the space of Completion.  Listen!  Life happens, life happens when you continue to operate from the space of Completion.

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 !

Living Advaitha – X

…continued from Living Advaitha IX

Listen, from today, we will start moving towards Completion.  The first step you should take is, listen, now you wrote all the incompletions.  It can be as less as twenty-five, thirty, or as huge as one-thousand, two-thousand.  Now decide from this moment this incompletions will not have power over your decision or cognition.  Listen.  Understand the meaning of this word.  Even till you complete, these incompletions cannot have power over your cognition, your decision-making.  You can sit and complete all these day by day, one by one.

 See it’s like a elephants; I have seen temple elephants eating.  They will catch hold of a huge bunch of sugarcanes.  They will eat the sugarcane one by one, or two-three.  But, till they complete eating, till they eat also they will not allow anybody else to come and touch the sugarcanes.  Once they declare it is theirs, it is theirs!  They may be slowly eating, or not eating, they may eat even tomorrow, day-after-tomorrow, but no one can touch it!  Same way, you may complete tomorrow or day-after-tomorrow, but those incompletions cannot have power over you, be very clear!

Declare Completion NOW!  You know all this is incompletions. Understand, Completion works more with your conscious decision. Completion works more with your conscious decision.

Completion is more a conscious decision, less a technique. Pranayama, Yoga, all of them are more a technique, less a conscious decision. Completion more conscious decision, less technique.  Means, your decision plays a major role in completing than actual technique. You just decide now you are complete….over!

I never did in my life sitting and reliving, going through or looking at the mirror twenty-four hours.  I never did all these things.  Simply my Masters showed me, ‘Hey, this is incompletion!  Drop it.’  Over!

So, it is your decision that plays major role. See this penning down is like a identification.  Now what you penned down, even if it is twenty-five page, you should paste it next to your bed.  And every day for next few days, you should read that and tell yourself, ‘I am complete with all these.’  After a few days, you will be bored to read them, because they have no more power over you.  Then you can tear them and put it in the dustbin.  You should feel bored to read your incompletions; then you are COMPLETE.  You should feel, ‘What is this?  This looks like somebody else had all this!  Why am I reading?’

See when I speak to some of the people come to me for healing. Recently, some people came to me for healing, psychological suffering.  They came to India from both side Muslim countries after being tortured.  And you know worst thing, it is not that only Hindus are tortured in Bangladesh and Pakistan; many Muslims are tortured and they run away to India for a peaceful life.  So some of them came to attend the satsang and have the blessing.  When I listened to their problems and the deep – I am honestly telling you, with all my compassion and love for that soul, I put my hand on them and attended to them, healed them, but for a moment I thought, ‘Oh God!  Thank God I was born in Bharat.  Let us keep this Bharat alive!’  Because I can’t even imagine this amount of suffering can be put into people.  I was so shocked!

Same way, I have seen some of the Sri Lankan Tamils who moved to Toronto and Malaysia, even in Tamil Nadu, when they come for healing, ask for healing, Oh God, when I put my hand on them and try to heal, the amount of pain!  Only then you will understand all your incompletions are foolishness!  Because you don’t have suffering, you just create suffering. If you have gone through the real torture in the life, you will not torture yourself, because you are too busy in handling the real torture.  Most of the time, the torture we create for ourselves is just because no work, like entertainment you start creating!

Understand all the incompletions you wrote should look like meaningless.  Till then go on reading it every day and declare Completion.  When you feel some of them you don’t even remember them anymore, you can scratch them.  I wanted all of you to do this very sincerely. One side, the authentic inner-image, outer-image, life-image, others-image; the other side, all the incompletions you are supposed to complete to achieve that authenticity. This is the process for Authenticity. Read More

..continued Living Advaitha Process – V

I will expand on The New Identity.

 Please understand, I’ll just recap the yesterday’s instruction first:

  •  Penning down the inner-image you want to create in an elaborate way.
  •  Penning down the outer-image you wanted to show.
  •  Penning down how you want others to perceive you – others-image.
  •  Penning down the life-image – how you are perceiving, you wanted to perceive  life and others.

 Elaborately pen down all these four images in a very detailed way which your teamily can understand.

 I wanted to define this word also:” Team + Family = Teamily”.  I have created so many technical terms now, the new people,  new visitors always feel at loss, because so many new Sanskrit words, technical terms.

 Pen down such a way that your whole teamily understands your definition of inner-image, outer-image, others-image and life-image.  Then next, ask your teamily to suggest to you what all the incompletions you need to complete to achieve the true identity you want to create.  You describe what is the identity you want to create to your teamily.  Now your teamily can suggest, your teamily can give you the feedback because the others-image and life-image is directly dependent on your teamily.  Your inner-image and outer-image is dependent on you.  The others-image, the completion of others-image and life-image is dependent on your teamily.  Your teamily has to be a co-creator for your others-image and life-image.  Let them give the suggestions – what all the completions you are supposed to do for you to co-create, for them to be a co-creator, for you to co-create the authentic inner-image, outer-image, others-image, life-image you want to create.

 And today, after getting the feedback from all of them, you sit and contemplate, come to the final structure.  Please understand, today you will come to the final, complete conclusion what is the authentic inner-image you want to create, outer-image you want to project, others-image you want to create and life-image you want to have  and all the incompletions you need to complete.  For example, you want to have the image that everyone should tell you are a great Yogi, every morning four o’clock you wake up and do Yoga; you want to have that image.  Now the problem is, you can’t get up.  You need alarm three times and three people to wake you up.  Then what to do?  Pen down, you have to complete with your sleeping pattern.  Sometimes you may be carrying deep resistance towards life  the reason for your withdrawal and celebrating sleep more than the body requires it, understand?  Sleeping more than six hours for any healthy adult means you are celebrating sleep.  Look in.  May be you are using it as an alternative to create your dreams, alternative to experience Completion.

 Understand, all your dreams are a temporary method of experiencing Completion.  You try to experience Completion in a temporary way.  Like a kid, if he wants to drive a car, he can’t get a real car; so he gets a toy car and plays with it and experiences certain temporary Completion.  Same way, when you feel life is too big for you, you create dreams and experience temporary Completions. Maybe, if you are celebrating temporary Completion, you will be sleeping more than required; you will be celebrating the sleep. Read More

Living Advaitha – V

…continued fromLiving Advaitha IV

 It is Authenticity  makes you  man.  Neither the birth nor the growth of your body, or the growth of your wealth makes you a man.  It is Authenticity which makes you a man.

Please listen, all sufferings, all sufferings – when I say “all”, I mean capital letters “A-L-L” – all sufferings is because you forget your identity again and again and again.  All the good things are showered on you when you become authentic.  Again and again aligning yourself to Authenticity is “Tapas”.

From yesterday, so many participants of Living Advaitha process, participants of Living Advaitha process have started posting in the Facebook about their inner-image, outer-image, others-image and life-image.

“Inner-image” is the idea you carry about yourself inside you.  “Outer-image” is the way you project yourself. “Others-image” is how others perceive you, for which you are responsible.  “Life-image” is how you perceive others and life.

So many participants who are participating in the Living Advaitha process, the teamily process through Facebook have posted.  I wanted you to understand this one thing:  When you are putting your inner-image and outer-image don’t try to describe in just one word.  Some of the people have just put “Shivoham”, “Shivoham”, “Shivoham”, “Shivoham” for all the four. Understand, what do you know about Shiva?  Describe the inner-image, inner-image you wanted to have.  Even if you defined it overall under the title “Shivoham”, describe what you understand as “Shivoham”, because now whatever you describe as your inner-image, anything other than that if it is sitting inside you, it has to be completed and dropped.  So the article title can be “Shivoham”but the article has to be written detailed way.

When you write inner image – Shivoham describe the detailed qualities, what you think as Shiva?  Please listen.  You will not know Shiva as on now, but at least pen down what you think as Shiva; let us complete all the incompletions other than your perception of Shiva.  For example, if you perceive Shiva all-powerful, all-knowing, always compassionate, so now you have to complete with your ignorance, powerlessness, all-powerlessness, all-ignorance and all-violence.  You have to complete and drop them.  Then don’t think you will get only the three qualities of Shiva.  Once you finish completing few incompletions, all the qualities of Mahadeva which you imagined and not imagined will break open as if the floodgates were open inside your system.

When you describe your inner-image should be like Shiva, what you think as Shiva, describe that.  Somebody wrote their inner-image should be like eternally enlightened. Yes, great!  What you describe as eternally enlightened, write your definition.  Why you know?  If you describe some two-three qualities which you think as enlightenment quality, or Shiva’s quality and complete with all the incompletions and drop, really the floodgate of Shiva’s energy will open in your system. You may describe Shiva as all-knower, all-powerful, omnipresent.  Shiva himself may be having thousand qualities.  You may be describing only three qualities.  But that three qualities, whatever incompletions you have about that three qualities, if you complete and drop them, don’t think only that three qualities will open up in you; it will open the floodgates where all the qualities of Mahadeva will start expressing through you!  Because, listen to this logic:  There is a huge dam.  There are now dams which are one kilometre in length.  In the modern-day, even twenty kilometres length dams we are building.  Even if it is one kilometre length dam to release the whole flood water you don’t need to break the whole one kilometre dam.  Just poke one hole into the dam.  One hole is enough.  The whole flood will destroy the dam and come out.  Same way, if you poke one hole into your thick ignorance, the “apasmara” in your thick forgetfulness.

Strategizing your day-to-day thinking based on the simple truths is Living Enlightenment.  Strategizing your day-to-day decisions based on the eternal truths is Living Advaitha.

Few days before I was shown a reply by a rich man to a pretty girl who has advertised in the dating websites that she wants to marry rich man.  When that reply was brought to me, I told Jnanatma I will comment on it.  Jnanatma can you read out and I will comment on it?

 

Jnanatma : So the article , ‘This Pretty Girl Was Seeking a Rich Husband. The Reply she got from a Banker was Priceless.’

The following is what a woman posted on a dating forum seeking a rich husband.

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say I am greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I have dated, the richest is $250k annual income and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden, $250k annual income is not enough.

I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

First – Where do most rich bachelors hang out? Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym.

Which age group should I target?

3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.

4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? My target now is to get married.

Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan below:

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.

From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money”: Person A provides beauty and Person B pays for it, fair and square.

However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.

If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”.

Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advise that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this helps.


J.P. Morgan CEO

———————

Understand, I usually pick up only the Upanishads, Vedic scriptures, to comment on.  But very rarely I pick up some modern-day writing or the recent postings to comment on.  But I picked it up this up personally.  It has a very deep insights of Advaitha.

Please listen. Whole life is a business, the whole life is trading: you give something, receive something.  Either you got more or you gave more.  Or you got and gave equally.  Whatever is said and done, whole life is a business, please understand.  But, the good news is, what you consider as you is the starting point.  The best news is that can be just updated by the Advaitha.

Please understand what you consider you is the position, trade position. If you consider you only dependant on your physical qualities you only have depreciation asset. You only have depreciation value. But if you assess yourself based on the qualities you carry in your mind it can be, you can be appreciation asset – means intelligence, your ability to handle any situation. Please understand whenever the queens were chosen they were always chosen, the first priority was given to their appreciation asset. Not to the depreciation asset. Whenever the daasis were chosen they were chosen even with just appreciation asset but whenever queens were chosen in any kingdom  they were chosen with appreciation asset.

Now I am introducing very important truth to you. You can have something which is eternally appreciating if you perceive yourself only as a body you have only depreciation asset. Exponentially depreciation asset.  Please understand whether you plan for your life based on your beauty or health. Whether you plan your life based on your beauty or your health you are planning on a wrong footing. You’re planning on a wrong footing.

Please understand there’s a Sanskrit verse:

Kaaryeshu daasi, karaneshu mantri, rupe cha lakshmi kshamaya daritri bhojyeshu maata shayaneshu rambha Shad-dharmayuktaah kuladharma patni

Means; ideal wife the one who works like a servant, advises and strategizes like a minister, feeds like a mother, makes love like a nymph, is as beautiful as Lakshmi and forgiving like the earth.

It’s a Sanskrit verse. One fellow read this verse and came to me and said, ‘Swamiji I have achieved the meaning of this verse!’ I said, ‘you are fortunate, blessings. Please call your wife, receive the blessings.’ He said, ‘No Swamiji just change the word, call your wives because so many qualities will not be in one person! I married six with all these each one having one of these qualities.’

Anyhow how you perceive you if it is just occupied means your self-image, your identity about you, if it is occupied completely by your look, by your beauty, the physical dimension, please listen, you are making all your strategies and plans based on depreciation asset more and more.  As time passes, life will be hell for you.  Kaala will bring suffering for you.  Please understand, the strategy which brings the best things as Kaala passes, is eternal strategy.

If your perception about you is all based on your beauty, you are having exponential depreciation asset.  You can manage few more years with various creams and cosmetic items, but it will continue to depreciate.

Second, if your perception about you is based on your mental abilities, your ability to understand, your ability to assess, your ability to strategize, your ability to cognize, your ability to respond, you have appreciation asset.  Please understand, you have appreciation asset.  As the time passes, you will only have more and more joy.  You will not have more and more suffering.  Kaala brings you more joy.

Manana

Manana means all your thinking is concentrated on your Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image betterment. Please understand, Inner Image is the ideas you carry about you. Outer Image is the ideas you project about you. Others’ Image is the ideas others carry about you. Life Image is the idea you carry about others and life. Constantly concentrate your thinking to make all these four better, better, better. Betterment of all these four leads to intense thinking and intense thinking leads to betterment of all these four.

Thinking to better all these four is what I call “manana”.

Vague thinking is one of the biggest mental disorder, psychological disorder, conscious disease, disease with which your consciousness is suffering. First thing, let your thinking be aligned to your Inner Image, Outer Image, Life’s Image, Others’ Image. Anything which is away from these four, consciously, decisively complete with that pattern. Let your energy be intensified just on these four. Stop this vague thinking. Learn to think.

Take four days off from your regular routine. Go somewhere where you are not demanded, where you are not expected to follow any routine. Wake up whenever you want. Start writing down your usual thinking but if you wake up, naturally your usual thinking will start. Pen down. After you pen down half-an-hour or one hour, when you don’t have further any thoughts, then read what you wrote, see how you can align your thinking to the betterment of these four – Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, Life Image. Whatever is not in alignment, complete with those thought patterns.

For example, if you are a sannyasi and if you have a thought pattern of the lust or power, then sit with yourself and complete with that root-pattern. Find out why that parasite patterns exists in you. I tell you, at some point you would have felt powerless, weak; that is why you wanted social power or political power as a alternative to your existential power. So complete with that pattern. I am not saying you should not have social power or you should not have political power, no. All I am saying is, having social power or political power due to the powerlessness inside is something seriously wrong. That powerlessness has to be completed, has to be attended. Complete with all the root-patterns which is not in sync, alignment with your Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image, which is not helping you to better all these four. Betterment of all these four is “manana”. Please listen if your thinking is vague, you do not align yourself with these four.

Authentic thinking, authentic thinking is Manana. Please understand, our thinking, is it going hand-in-hand with the way we want to build ourselves? If your thinking is bettering your four identities, then your thinking is your friend. If your thinking is functioning in the opposite direction of your four identities, if they are not bettering that four identities, then your thinking itself is your enemy. Please understand, first you need to find out whether your thinking is acting as a god inside you or as a demon inside. Whether it is acting as a god inside you or as a demon inside you. Sometime many of you are possessed by ghost. What is that ghost? Your own thinking which is not in alignment with the betterment of your four identities.

First, sit and pen down the four identities you wanted to have – the best Inner Image, best Outer Image, best Other’s Image, best Life Image. Have that four. Pen down. Then align all your thinking to it. If there is some thinking which goes in a completely different direction, complete with it, complete it. Declare spontaneous completion and drop it. Align your thinking towards these four identities – Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image and Life’s Image.

Dense thinking, intense thinking, sincere thinking becomes authenticity. You don’t need to do anything special to be authentic. You don’t need to spend every day some time to become authentic. First, spend few days and learn authenticity, learn to think in an authentic way.

“Manana” is one of the biggest treasure, power, God has given you and unfortunately, you are not using it.

Sometime, when people come and stand here asking me for healing them, I really feel, ‘Oh, God, why are you coming and standing in front of me like a beggar? Narayana, why do you stand here like a “daridra” without realizing you are Narayana? You are capable of everything I am capable of!’

It is unfortunate, people have, their own head becomes a dead-weight on themselves. It is like a big rock is sitting on you, you cannot move your body. So their own thinking becomes a big rock on themselves and they feel they are bound, they are bound, they are bound. They are bound, they are bound, they are bound. So unfortunate. All you need to do is only one thing: align your thinking towards your four identities. That’s all. That’s all.

Your thinking can become your enemy; your thinking can become your friend. Bringing intensity into your thinking is Manana.
