The format on which mind operates is challenge and response
from moment to moment. There is auto arising of challenge. Mind translates the
challenge as good or bad. If the judgment is kept at bay, response is relaxed
and conscious. The ground is realized. Now one sees
auto disturbance and auto adjustment from moment to moment, which is the
movement of Life.
It is supreme relaxation, supreme healing, supreme understanding that-whatever you know or do (or not do) is sufficient, complete at this moment as all knowledge and doing arises in the quantum field. ‘You’ is under the illusion, fear that it may fall, something may go wrong. In the ‘whole’, there is no place to fall, nothing to go wrong. Everything is in it.
Why should I admit the idea of failure, the idea of
unfavourable results, the idea of losses in the future, the idea of
unfavourable happenings in the future? The idea of failure and so on arises
only when I want to feel satisfied about the future now. And this is the
psychological error, which the mind pursues in unawareness and keeps on making
You can be happy only when you are comfortable
with contradictions, ambiguity, negativity, uncertainty.
Spirituality does not mean
adjustment with the situation with the help of some ideation including that of
God. It means to be with the situation, whatever it may be. Being with the
situation means- not resorting to complaining, blaming, feeling guilty, not
embroiling oneself in ‘why and how’. But simply taking action, if any required
at the moment. The Original may touch.
The world is full of hate, despair, distrust. Is there
To depend upon hope is to postpone action, is to escape
the intensity of the moment.
The person who hates does not have any problem with
hate. He enjoys the comfort of being right, superior. Unless this comfort gets
a hit, hatred can not go. It is only when you leave the comfort of being
superior, right that hatred (or any negativity) coming into your contact
dissolves. The burden to dissolve hatred is not on the person who hates but on
one who understands.
You are tense because you want to feel satisfied, comfortable about something, which is not Now. Seeing this connects you to the fluid state, that is, you see the uncertainty of the future as a fact. Action is relaxed and conscious as the energy is not frittered away in covering up uncertainty. Your will has a meaning now.
One is trying to control ‘what should happen’. Leaving this control opens the flood gates of energy. Supreme relaxation takes over. Brain can not enjoy the comfort (illusory) of this control. It can enjoy action as ambling and seeing what emerges from moment to moment.
Spirituality means things
can be managed by managing your consciousness. You touch the ground of
consciousness when you do not escape the uneasiness generated on facing a
situation you do not like.
Brain is bound by the
momentum. It can not stay in the relieved state or in the disturbed state. The
illusion enters as if relieved state can stay and disturbed state is alien.
Seeing that ‘nothing’ can be done to secure such a (relieved) state, it tastes
supreme relaxation-the self-sustained ground.
Accepting the present
moment ‘as it is’ can not be used as a positive assertion to realize.
Acceptance has to happen, where the mind is adamant, where it is not accepting,
where it is escaping the uneasiness of the moment psychologically. Here the
negative meets the positive; the zero ground is suddenly realized.
When you are nervous,
anxious, confused and so on- it means ego is not able to settle on some
pre-confirmed ground. Ego is not able to find its comfort zone. If these
expressions are not rejected as alien, the whole energy is concentrated here in
action. The crash of ego is an invitation to the wholeness to operate. You are
now attuned to wonder. Action is relaxed and conscious.
The idea of suffering is
created when we want to bind ‘what is happening’ to cause and effect
explanation or we want to feel comfortable about something, which can not be
solved Now, dealt with Now.
One can never desire
supreme relaxation. One desires only stable psychological comfort ‘by escaping
uneasiness and uncertainty’, which the brain is experiencing. One hopes to make
this comfort stable, keeps on (illusory) fighting with uneasiness and
uncertainty until the hope is shattered. The shattering of this hope is one’s
attunement to supreme relaxation-the self-sustained ground.
You can not find Reality as an object. ‘You’ and the outer
is one as Reality. To see that you and the outer is a singular process rests
all seeking. As whatever comes before you can not be escaped. It is ‘you’.
Hitherto, one was busy in holding the pleasant and rejecting the unpleasant as
alien. When freed from this exercise, one is attuned to oneself, to the
Original. Action is relaxed and conscious. Now any action in any direction is
There is a field within you, which you only can access.
This field is continuously stirred by happenings outside. This stir is
positive, negative or neutral. The illusion seeks to stop at positive. To see
that nothing can be done to stop the movement of positive, negative and
neutral-one is supremely relaxed. Limitless field is realized. Action is now
relaxed and conscious.
If you can feel and absorb the friction between ‘what is’
and ‘what you think should be’ without any idea, explanation-you have touched
the Original energy.
Brain functions with symmetry, known. It is
comfortable in this. It rejects asymmetry, unknown as anger, anxiety,
fear. It is uncomfortable in this. When it sees that asymmetry, unknown
can not be wished away-the non-linear, self-sustained energy
takes over. It sees the oncoming moment with wonder instead of fitting
it into ideas, explanations (known). Supreme relaxation happens not when
brain is comfortable with symmetry, known but when it is comfortable
with the unknown. Here one sees the ecstasy of being ‘alive’.
