When you resonate Existence, it will simply keep giving you what you need for that moment, even before you seek it!

When you are not so concerned about your ego getting hurt, you will have the courage to take any jump. All your so-called worry is actually about your ego getting hurt. When you are free from ego, you will act with more freedom and courage. You will be more willing to explore. When you are full of wonder for Existence, you can create. On the other hand, when you are full of ego, you cannot create. Even if you do create, your creation will be a dead creation. It will be like a plastic rose that looks perfect but lacks…

Drop seriousness, and bring sincerity and sensitivity to life!

All our comparison with other people begins with what we think of ourselves. Jealousy disappears when we understand our uniqueness. We may then create another problem. We may believe ourselves to be so special that we start taking ourselves far too seriously. What is seriousness? Seriousness is nothing but paying undue importance to something, at the cost of everything else. It arises from the inability to see that all of life is just a drama that is unfolding every minute. Seriousness is the result of over-expectation from life. All our seriousness is just about sandcastles! For the child, at that…

Once love starts flowing, jealousy and possessiveness and all that simply become non-existent!

Jealousy does not allow you to experience your true nature of love and bliss. It arises out of misunderstanding life and yourself. You misunderstand love to be something outside of you that has to be acquired. Not only that, you think love is a quantity that needs to be shared. That is why you are afraid, thinking that if you share your love, your share will be reduced. Love is a quality inside you. It is not a limited quantity. It is an unending happening overflowing from within you. It cannot be blocked by anything or anybody except you because…

Meditation technique to overcome jealousy

Jealousy is closely related to many negative emotions like anger, greed, possessiveness and depression. All of these emotions will dissolve when we break this cycle of jealousy. Jealousy cannot be overcome either by escaping from it or hating the object of jealousy. All you need to do is just be fully aware when the feeling of jealousy arises. You will be surprised, it simply disappears. The enlightened master Buddha says, ‘Destroy those envying roots and enjoy lasting peace.’ Just be aware and destroy the jealousy, competition, envy and comparison that have robbed you of your very nature of bliss. Use…

If you can look but not be affected by what you see, then you have found the right way!

Actually, jealousy has no solid existence. In that way it is like darkness. Darkness does not have an independent, positive existence. Darkness is not the presence of something. Darkness is just the absence of light. In the same way, jealousy has no independent, solid existence by itself. It is just the absence of knowledge or awareness. There is no end to comparison because comparison exists in the mind, not in reality. The jealousy that arises from comparison also has no basis.   Some people ask me, ‘Then, is it better for us not to look at others and their achievements?…

The only way to really live and enjoy life is to enjoy the very doing itself!

We all function around the three axes of doing, having and being. Doing for having, without enjoying being, is the sole cause of all our misery. Doing never catches up with having! Every time you work hard and fulfill one desire, suddenly that desire loses its pull over you. As enlightened master, Ramana Maharishi, says beautifully, ‘The mind is such that it shows a tiny mustard seed to be a huge mountain until it is attained. As soon as it has been attained, even a mountain appears as insignificant as a mustard seed!’ As soon as a desire is fulfilled,…

Worries are the knots in the handkerchief. When we look at them with awareness, we will know how to dissolve them

Worry is a deeply embedded pattern in us. It happens independently, without any solid, valid embedded pattern in us. It is an addiction like smoking and drinking. I read about some recent research conducted at the American College of Chest Physicians. It said that the proportion of people classified as highly nicotine dependent has increased by thirty two percent in the last eighteen years! Any addiction happens because we want to maintain our patterns. The same is true with worry. You worry to maintain patterns. It becomes your nature. Understand that the mind is like a piece of hardware programmed…

Existence equips you with the energy to fulfill all that you will need to live a happy and fulfilling life!

Suppose there was a huge ladder and everybody in the world was asked to stand on it in ascending order of success in any field such as beauty or intelligence. You would probably position yourself somewhere in the middle of the ladder. There are many people above you but there are also many people below you. Seeing the people above you causes you to feel jealous, so you constantly try to become better than them in order to move further up the ladder. Now at some point in your life, you may realize the uselessness of this never-ending game. Then…

Meditation Technique to Be a witness

The sure way to handle any emotion including guilt is to be a witness. Just watch it. Hindus call it being a sakshi. Don’t do anything. Anything done under the impact of a negative emotion is bound to be wrong. Later guilt will arise. Just be a watcher, a witness. See it. It is there.…

From head to heart meditation technique

Sit down and close your eyes. Take slow and deep breaths, just for a few minutes. Along with it, feel that your head is being pressed into your heart, into the chest region. Become totally headless. You have no head now. You are headless. Feel that you are breathing from the heart. Feel that you are seeing through the heart. Feel that you are smelling through your heart. Feel very clearly that you are breathing through the heart. Listen through the heart, see through the heart and feel through the heart. Stand up. Have the consciousness from the heart and…

Meditation Technique to relieve yourself from powerlessness

Re-living is relieving! The best way to relieve yourself of guilt is to re-live it. Sit in a meditative mood. Close your eyes and one by one bring to surface each of your guilts. Re-live the wounds completely. Do not console yourself about the guilt. Open your eyes and write it all down in detail. Write in as detailed a way as possible. You will see that you are free from all the guilt feelings that you are carrying. source: Living Enlightenment

Why do we compare ourselves with others? Because we forgot that all of the confidence, intelligence, and vibrant energy that we need already exists inside us!

Emotions of fear, desire and guilt are subjective emotions. What I mean by this is that you do not need another person or even an object to create these emotions. Imagine that you are in a sound-proofed room with your eyes closed and with nothing to touch, taste or smell. You can still feel the emotions of fear or desire. But to compare yourself with another person and to feel jealous of him, you need the presence of another person. Jealousy is therefore an objective emotion. It needs an object to be activated. Jealousy starts from comparison. We always compare…

Integrity is being in the present moment and being only one solid personality and not many conflicting personalities! Once you integrate yourself, you will be centered upon awareness!

Morality should happen out of integrity, not out of guilt! What do I mean by integrity? Integrity is being in the present moment and being only one solid personality and not many conflicting personalities. It is seeing reality without the play of the mind. Once the mind steps in, duality also steps in. Just by…

Guilt is the way to commit the same mistake again because you forget the mistake and start focusing on the guilt! To feel guilty is to be in sin. In fact, that is the only sin!

Guilt is actually the shadow of the ego. When somebody says something and you become angry, it is the ego, your idea about yourself, that causes the anger. But right after, you start feeling guilty about losing your temper. Now, too, it is the same ego that causes the guilt. It gives you the feeling…
