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

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…

In real powerfulness, you will do so much, but you will never feel you are doing so much

You will never do anything, but you think you are qualified for everything!  You will never take responsibility, but you think you can boss around everyone.  I tell you, this mental setup puts you in Indraloka where constant insecurity.  You may think, ‘Wow!  Indraloka is great!  I can drink Somarasa, see the dance of Rambha, Menaka, Urvashi, Tilottama, go around and smell the flowers of Parijata, rest under the Kalpavruksha, drink the milk of Kamadhenu…’  No!  You need to know, Heaven is constantly under threat!  So, when you build arrogance and show powerfulness outside, but inside you are powerless, because…

Comparison

One of the natural tendencies for you is comparing yourself with others.  And, whether you compare yourself with the people whom you think higher than you or whom you think lower than you, you are going to fall into the space of powerlessness. If you compare yourself with the people whom you think higher than you, you will fall into the powerless space of guilt, giving up on you, the idea you are not worthy enough; you will fall into all these powerless spaces. If you compare yourself with people whom you think who are lower than you, again you will fall…

What is sex ?

The most talked about, thought about and written about subject is sex. The most misunderstood, misinterpreted and confusing subject is also sex! We either try to avoid the subject, or we try to indulge in it. Sex is deeply buried in our unconscious minds. Right from the start, we rarely find someone who can enlighten us on the subject of sex. Sex, more than any other subject, needs to be illumined with the light of consciousness.  Sex is a tremendous creative energy. It is a meditative energy. The whole world has arisen out of sex energy.  Our ancient enlightened masters,…

Everything happens by natural flow of prakriti. Pure Self in you is neither affected nor disturbed but resides in pure strength.

“Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 2)

….. continued from “Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 1) Now we are coming to the initiation part. Any thought may suddenly click with you. Oh God! Yes that is what is going on in me, that is what I am doing. One important truth – even if you want, even if you try consciously, you cannot possess, sit, catch your suffering. Its a very important truth. Even if you try to catch, you cannot catch your suffering. Because continuously your suffering is also replaced by different thoughts. One person came to me and asked “Swamiji, I am suffering from…

Changing the object is never a solution. Changing the attitude is the solution. When you understand this, the very object of your desire becomes for you a doorway to the Divine.

“Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 1)

Let me express a key word – Mahavakya, the word which you need to completely understand. May be modern day ‘Mahavakya’. The word is “Be Unclutched”. Now let us try to analyze and internalize this one truth, one mahavakya. We have beautiful different Mahavakyas in Vedic tradition – Aham Brahmasmi, Tatvamasi, Pragnam Brahmam, Sarva Kalvidam Brahmam. These are all different Mahavakyas. Be Unclutched – What do I mean by the word – being Unclutched. Let me try to explain it with a simple diagram, how, continuously our mind is working and how we are clutching, connecting and creating a life or suffering…

Transformation

Trusting transformation cannot happen in you leads to guilt. Trusting transformation cannot happen in others leads to anger.
