Please listen! In every level of thinking, let this one truth be the core truth of your being, your core cognition from which you are constantly making decisions. See, for a woman, the core cognition will be, “I am a woman. I am a woman. I need to protect me.” Even by hypnotising, mesmerising, you cannot take away that part. Listen! For a woman, “I am a woman” is the core cognition. For men, please listen, for men, “I am not enough” is the core cognition. For a woman, it will always be “I have to protect me. I am a woman”, that fear is the core cognition. For men, “I am not enough”, the greed will be the core cognition. Replace both with the cognition of Completion. For women – “Hey, I cannot be violated! Anything which can be violated is not me!” For men – “I am enough unto myself! Nothing can be added to me! If anything can be added, it can be taken away!”
The first verse itself:
“Completion is Completion. This is Completion. That is Completion. From Completion this and that happens. Whether this becomes that, or that becomes this, it is only Completion moving into Completion, and Completion becoming Completion.”
Understand? Whether this becomes that, or that becomes this, Completion moves into Completion! Completion moves into Completion!
I tell you, you sit and do the Completion process, technique. Suddenly you see incompletion disappears! Anything which can disappear, how can you say it existed earlier? See, when something is not going to be there tomorrow, how can you say it is there today? This stone may not exist in the same form tomorrow, means, this may be factual, but not real. See, today if you take this stone and throw it on somebody’s head, they will be hurt. I am not denying its power and existence. But it is not real, because, tomorrow it may or may not exist in the same form. If something cannot exist tomorrow, it is not real even today, understand! Your whole life, you are centering it on “factual”. That is why so much of suffering. Centre it on “real”. A person who centers his cognition on “real”, lives a non-serious life, I tell you! Non-serious life is what I call “Celebration”.
நாம் ஆர்க்கும் குடியல்லோம், நமனை அஞ்சோம்,
Naam aarkum kudiallom, namanai anjom,
It is a verse from Vaageesha Munivar, a great enlightened being, Thirunaavukkarasar. “We are not frightened even about the so-called death”, understand?
If your every-day thinking, every-day feeling, is more based on fact, the so-called fact, more fear, more greed, more incompletion, more bondage, more suffering, more torture. Food is required for living. But are you spending twenty-four hours on food? If you are spending twenty-four hours on food, that same food will kill you! Same way, facts are required for simple, smooth running of life. But don’t be obsessed with the fact-based life. Don’t judge yourself, gauge yourself every day based on the bank balance you have. Food is required for living. But if you are too obsessed with it, that itself will kill you! Facts are required for the smooth flow of life. But if you are too obsessed with it, that itself will destroy you! Let your life be reality-based. Let your bio-memory and muscle-memory be more and more built on reality-based. Anything which was not there yesterday, cannot be there today. Anything which is not going to be there tomorrow, cannot be there today. Let your cognition be slowly, slowly established.
The word “slowly, slowly”, I am using just to give you encouragement. But if you come near, I will not say ‘slowly, slowly’, but ‘goli, goli’! The “slowly, slowly” word does not mean slowly, slowly; it means really “SPEED”! I am just saying ‘slowly, slowly’, so that you don’t run away; that’s all!
Understand, I am telling you, establish yourself beautifully, establish yourself beautifully in the space of Completion and reality. Let more and more of your bio-memory and muscle-memory become Completion-based thinking, reality-based thinking; you will LIVE! It is not that you will not bother about facts; but you will handle it intelligently! It is not that you won’t eat; but food won’t be able to eat you! Now you are so obsessed with facts, it is not that you are using them, they are using you! If you are smoking one cigarette per day, YOU are smoking the cigarette. But if it is hundred, CIGARETTE IS SMOKING YOU! If you are eating which is necessary for living, YOU are eating. But, if it is more than that, FOOD IS EATING YOU! Same way, facts. It is required for a smooth running. Like, you need to know that two plus two is four (2 + 2 = 4), so that, when you receive your salary, you collect that money exactly and come back, and live your transactions based on those facts. But, that itself is not, cannot be the core of your cognition, understand? See, you have to learn driving to reach your office. But, that itself is not enough for you to run your office. Driving is a basic lesson for you to reach your office. But, to run your office, you need a different cognition. If you think, ‘Oh, driving itself is a big, great thing I learnt’, then be a driver your whole life, that’s all! Not more than that! You will never become a CEO!
Understand, the fact-based cognitions, understandings, calculations, are like learning to drive; but reality-based cognition is learning to LIVE! Learn to LIVE! Please learn to LIVE! That’s all I am saying.
And the grace which comes to you when you learn to live, the courage of enlightenment, the beauty of enlightenment, the grace of enlightenment, even kings will feel jealous of you! Celebrities will feel shy looking at your grace! And kings will feel jealous of the power you are radiating! Businessmen will feel guilty of the way you are living, I am telling you! It is reality-based life, reality-based cognition. No one can torture you. All the fellows who try to torture you will finally torture themselves and disappear! Karma comes back!
Please understand, life functions with clear, straightforward, honest, authentic principles. It is intelligence. No way you can cheat life! No way you can cheat life! Life has no hypocrisy. Life has no place for hypocrisy.
Understand, cognition, your inner thinking, feeling, decision-making, your cognition, if it functions based on reality, it is not that you will forget the facts. You will know the facts and you will be able to play with the facts! People will feel you are doing miracles; but you are not doing miracles, you are just playing with the facts.
Listen! If you stand with the cognition of reality, neither somebody can honour you, add something to you, nor somebody can dishonour you, take away something from you. The person who tries to honour you will be more and more happy. The person who tries to dishonour you will more and more fall into depression and suffer. The person who tries to honour you, gets that same honour back, because, you cannot be honoured! The person who tries to dishonour you, gets back that same dishonour, because, you cannot be dishonoured! Like Mahadeva. He is sitting. You try to pour milk and sandal on him. It will only shower on you! You will only be enjoying that smell! And you try to put something else. Then that will also be on you only! He is there. He can neither be honoured nor be dishonoured.
I tell you, live in the cognition of reality. The cognition of reality: “Completion WAS, Completion IS, Completion WILL BE!” You are established in the space of Completion. Even when you imagine you have incompletion, your incompletions may be based on “facts”, but it is not based on “real”. “Fact” is different, “Real” is different. “Fact” is different, “Real” is different. Your incompletions may be based on “fact”, but can never be based on “real”. The law of “real”, the principle of “real”, the dharma of “real” is:
पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||
Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |
Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||
Means: “From the space of Completion only Completion comes out. Even when Completion comes out, Completion remains as Completion. When the Completion goes back, Completion remains as Completion”.
Even when you think they are separate, both remain as Completion. It is ALWAYS Completion in the space of Completion and Completion!
Listen! That is why I am saying, I am telling you…..
In the dream you see many things. You even run if a tiger chases you in the dream. It may be factual for the time being, but it cannot be real. Same way, even in the so-called waking state, when your dream pulls you and pushes you, your perceptions may be factual, but not real.
The perceptions getting established in the space of real, perceptions tuning itself to real, is what I call “Living Advaitha”! “Living Advaitha”!
I tell you, make your perceptions into real! Make your perceptions into real! Make your perceptions into real! Let your cognition be established on reality. The Shanthi Mantra can give you eternal shanthi (eternal peace) just if you make it as your cognition. So, with the decision, decision to make this as your cognition, please chant the Shanthi Mantra along with me:
ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||
|| ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ||
Om Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |
Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||
|| Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthih ||
