Comfortableness with uncertainty, ambiguity, confusion makes every action a play

Your capacities increase when you are comfortable with uncertainty, ambiguity, confusion. Otherwise one is simply seeking relief by bypassing, by covering up the feeling of confusion, ambiguity, uncertainty. Either anxiety overtakes or dullness, decay sets in. Comfortableness with uncertainty, ambiguity, confusion makes every action a play. And games, play and so on essentially help in this direction.

Work, Entertainment and Health Crisis

posted May 30, 2017, 10:42 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated May 30, 2017, 11:07 AM ]

All yoga, medical intervention, diet adjustments, religious and spiritual preaching tell a partial story.

If one's work is not entertainment for one, one is on health crisis. Acting compulsively and seeking relief through results, possessions, entertainment and so on vitiates the immune system. Till the time, your activities are divided as compulsive, ‘should do’ and entertaining, relief giving (includes spiritual activities and talks)-the integral state, the fused state can not take over.

One is interested in ‘A’ activity, situation. Now when the scene changes, there is ‘B’ activity or situation, one is disinterested or interest is at low level. Why the interest shifts due to change in the activity or situation? If one can become aware of this shifting (of interest), one is attuned to the original energy. Now the passion comes from life energy itself. 

What if something is presented to me in which I am disinterested?

See the fact of disinterestedness; see the uneasiness disinterestedness is creating.

Do not treat uneasiness as alien.

Action emerges. Then either you do it or not do it. The side you take is hundred percent. You become conscious of doing or not doing it.

You have become the creative impulse of the Universe.

 You can not work as compulsion and find ‘what is True’ through religious-spiritual activities. They simply give relief against compulsion, entertainment against compulsion of work.

If one is not doing work as compulsion?

When you are passionate in what you are doing, the need for escapes through religious-spiritual activities is no longer there. One is in fused (fusion of compulsion and relief) state. One is the creative impulse of the Universe now.

One becomes interested in religious-spiritual activities, ideas as one is not interested or superficially interested in one’s work or in one’s family or in other social interactions.

One comes under the illusion as if ‘pain and uncertainty’, which life is showing to him can be solved or undone by ideas about God or other spiritual ideas or practices.

Religious-spiritual activities, practices simply serve as relief provider to cover up, to escape from the pain and uncertainty of life.

One wants to throw away the resistance (pain and uncertainty) which life is showing.

This throwing away the resistance separates one from totality.

Once the resistance is absorbed-total ground is realized.

The illusion remains busy in covering up, undoing this resistance by explanations, activities. Hence dullness, decay.

 Unless you are in immediate physical danger or acute physical pain-all discomforts (loss, defame, relationship problems and so on) are psychological discomforts, even if it is extremely difficult situation. Unless you are in actual physical danger, you are essentially at rest. This rest is always with you. This rest connects you to the ground, to all possibilities.

Due to dependence upon religious-spiritual ideas and intoxications for relief, the capacity to absorb psychological discomforts is weakened.

When you are comfortable with any irritating feeling, ambiguity, uncertainty-the release of pleasure hormones (dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin) and stress hormones (cotrisol, adrenaline) is balanced. The balancing of these hormones renews the cells of body and brain.

Addiction is anything or any activity that covers up or glosses over ‘pain and uncertainty’. Addiction blocks the natural friction of the brain on which life is sustained. Immune system of the body may get weakened. 

We do not align ourselves with micro movements from moment to moment but want stable relief from the unpredictability of micro movements. We do not feel comfortable with uncertainty, ambiguity. We want relief of pre-confirmations.  Acknowledging uncertainty, ambiguity opens up to the limitless field. 

One is so much attached to ‘relief’ offered by holidays, entertainment, religious and spiritual activities that one’s other days, other activities automatically become ‘compulsive’. This divide does not let one see ‘what is True’.

Supply of natural friction to the body and brain is obstructed when one wants to become complacent or becomes complacent in respect of possessions, relations, situations ideas. To be comfortable with fundamental ambiguity between this moment and the next completely relaxes the brain and leaves it with unending natural friction to operate.

Artificial Intelligence could end Humanity a news dated 15th May 2015

posted May 17, 2015, 3:02 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated May 17, 2015, 3:03 AM ]

It can happen only if Artificial Intelligence( AI) could generate its own power, operating energy. If we can shut down its source of energy, AI can not overtake.
But the point is-from where we get our energy, our power, our capacity to be conscious. To resolve this issue takes us to another dimension.

Total humanity is in the same boat

posted Jan 21, 2015, 3:33 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Jan 21, 2015, 3:43 AM ]

We are so much conditioned by religion, spirituality, ideas about God that we never venture to seek ‘what is True’. We have adjusted ourselves to ideas dished out by others about Life. We are enamoured by good-bad, right-wrong bifurcation (apart from law)  as if order will come and stay.

Fundamental Understanding-Spirituality- is fundamental clarity about Life and not any ideation to comfort the mind, not wait for some happy ending, not dependence upon others to solve one’s psychological uncomfortableness. It is to question, negate any comforting diversion to solace the mind from the uneasiness, irritation it is experiencing now. The whole energy is concentrated here.

It is not an advice or addition to knowledge. It is a hit on the mind that what it is seeking (stable pleasure, confirmation about tomorrow, about others’ behaviour) is not available. The hit attunes one to supreme relaxation, the self-sustained ground.

One is thinking as if there is disorder in the world, in the Universe and something should be done to put it into order. All our politics, governance, economics, science is geared towards this perception. It is like a jerk for the mind to know, to understand that every movement is from order to order and not from disorder to order and there is no satisfactory dead end.

You can operate in the world as you want. Your ideas to set the world right as if you are safe, good, important-hence separate- is the cause of conflicts within you and within society. Total humanity is in the same boat.


Researchers experiement drug to erase painful memories-An article in Medical X-press May 2014

posted May 30, 2014, 6:48 PM by Y V Chawla   [ updated May 30, 2014, 7:05 PM ]

Forcible removal of bad memories is sure to cause loss of energy, dullness, may be feeling of frustration. It is only when any psychological discomfort of past or in respect of future is experienced 'as it is'-that one remains attuned to the original energy, the inexhaustible energy. Physical and mental capacities gain higher levels.

‘I’ is the enclosing factor.

posted Mar 5, 2014, 8:13 AM by Y V Chawla

Eyes see because the vision is ended at a point. Even in the sky, where we have nothing to see as end. An end as blueness is created as sky to see. If there is no enclosing factor, what the eyes will see? Nothing.
Similarly, ‘I’ is the limit of the mind, consciousness. ‘I’ is the enclosing factor.
‘I’ operates as ‘I’ relates to an object. ‘I’ and the outer, other is bound as a singular process, self-sustained process-the totality.

The illusory comfort of explanations, answers

posted Nov 1, 2013, 10:01 PM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Oct 23, 2014, 11:41 AM ]

One thinks as if non-technical questions can be answered.

There are technical questions such as how to run a computer, where to buy food, arithmetical questions, how to book a ticket and so on.

They all can be answered by somebody or you can find the answers somewhere. The information is available.

Now one is under the illusion that non-technical questions- what is all this existence, why I feel stressed, why I feel angry, why I feel fear, why the other is richer or poorer than me, why there is negativity( corruption, terrorism and so on) all around, why I feel constrictions to my freedom and so on can also be answered.

There are those in whom these questions do not arise. They are continuously adjusting themselves without raising these questions. The adjustment is essentially with the help of some idea.

Now there are those who are stuck up, who want to find answers to non-technical questions.

Some of them accept religious or scientific explanations. Religious explanations are like- it is God who is doing all this, it is all the result of one’s fate, some saviour will take care some day and so on. Some are satisfied with these answers. There are others who do not accept these answers but hope to find the answers some day in future. They may offer scientific or economic explanations.

These explanations satisfy them.

But if you have become so passionate about these questions, so serious about these questions that you want an answer ‘Now’. No explanation, religious or scientific is able to assuage the pain of these questions. You are bent upon.

Suddenly, you realize that there is no one to answer.  You are Alone. From whom you are seeking answers?

Now you will touch the original pain, the original resistance, the original energy on which the Life is sustained.

The need for answers suddenly drops; you become one with Life as it is.

You touch the unending stream of Life.

The mystery of existence starts unfolding.

The life force

posted Sep 20, 2013, 4:34 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Oct 28, 2014, 7:18 PM ]

The same force is propelling all the movements. 
See any micro movement to see the force.
See how an ant is moving.
See the flowing of river.
Pick a pen and see from where the impulsion to pick comes.
See a bird flying.
See how day changes into night.
See how a thought arises in the mind.
Put your hand in cold water. There is feeling. See how mind names that feeling.
How you feel when something palatable or unpalatable happens;

This ‘how’ is not a question or explanation. ‘How’ is seeing the propelling force of any micro movement.
When you are able to see the micro movement, the atomic movement-you are able to see the force. There is only that force. 'You' is only a name, a word.
Life force is not an idea or explanation. You feel the force when you feel angry, when you feel confusion, when you meet any unexpected positive or negative happening. There is ‘nothing’ behind this feeling, this vibration.

Understanding and Ending the problem making Mechanism

posted Sep 8, 2013, 9:38 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Oct 31, 2013, 2:31 AM ]

We are happy in finding solutions to our problems.
This is a trap in which the human mind is caught.
Solutions can not ‘end’ the problem.
You have to understand the problem making mechanism to end it.
Mind seeks satisfaction through the solution of the problem.
It says, ‘take me out of the problem, uneasiness’.

Can one see that this is a new problem?
And this problem raises its head every time one faces an unfavourable situation.
To understand this (new) problem is to end it.
The end of it is the end of the problem making mechanism. Now any action in any direction is relaxed, creative.

How material comes into existence?

posted Jan 19, 2013, 9:45 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Dec 16, 2013, 4:30 AM ]

To see the total field of existence is the point. Senses see, touch, listen and so on, breathing in and out is going on, there is memory and imagination and thoughts arising in the mind. Anger, fear, anxiety, happiness are the expressions of Life to keep the mind alive. This is the format of Life. Can one see that there is nothing beyond this? 

How material comes into existence?

This is a thought about material. Existence is Original. We are conscious and seeing, touching the material-is the Original. Experiencing is the Original. You can not go beyond experiencing. The world is dependent upon your being conscious of it. ‘You’ is bound to the world is the Original. You and the world is a singular process.  Continuous changes in the material is what ‘existence is’.
Continuous unpredictable change is the Truth. What causes the change? It is again a thought ‘about’ change. The inevitability of change silences the brain.

When you are hungry, only one thought that of food is there. When food goes inside the body and the processing starts, brain becomes ready for its function, that is, thoughts start generating. Including the thought of 'you', God, soul, creation. Thoughts arise because of life energy. Thought is entrapped in likes and dislikes. It loses contact with the energy from where it draws its sustenance. The secret, the origin is in this energy and not what thoughts depict.

The relationship between the field of consciousness (including memory and imagination) and Existence (the field of senses) holds the key to fundamental understanding. Within memory and imagination, everything is oneness; simply we are conscious of those things. Whatever is reflected as outer is Existence in the field of senses. Consciousness as consciousness does not exist. Existence is manifested as two-the observer and the observed. To see this whole paradigm is the end of all questions. As in the field of consciousness, the observer and the observed are one. In oneness, who will question whom? Questions can be only for practical purposes, daily life and not ‘about Existence’-when the field is recognized. 

You experience the life energy when you touch, listen, see, move something and so on. Put your hand in cold water. There is feeling in the body and brain. Now thought can express this feeling, it is not this feeling. The hyper expressions of energy are anger, fear, anxiety, pain, pleasure, confusion and so on. Whatever you experience is complete from moment to moment. Thought can describe the experiencing. It (under the illusion) becomes busy in accepting or rejecting or conceptualizing, what is experienced.

The ‘impetus to do and the movement’ is separate from the description. ‘The impetus to do and the movement’ comes from the energy, from the source itself. The boost created by thought for any action is self defeating. The boost can not stay. When thought sees its limit, the passion in the movement of energy itself is endless, restless.

Everything that is discovered or innovated is for some use. It can not be the source, the Original. To touch the Original, the source-the discoverer, the innovator is also to be included. The discoverer, the observer and the discovered, the observed is a singular process. 

To touch the Original you have to take one step- ‘to quieten the clamouring mind which says, ‘why this is so’, ‘why this is not so’. The quietening has to happen without the support of any idea, explanation. You and the world is bound as a singular process, enclosed process, the complete, self-sustained process-including what you dislike and like, fear and cherish. Mind comes under the illusion as if something does not belong to it and is to be thrown out. It escapes pain (any uneasiness) and uncertainty as if the friction of pain and uncertainty will be undone. Here one can see that all pain and uncertainty is psychological discomfort, if it is not immediate physical danger. You can not throw the discomfort out of your mind; there is no place to throw it out. When you see this, you are supremely relaxed-as you have seen yourself as a complete process.

Brain can not recognize anything without contrast.
We are conscious against being not-conscious.
Everything is bound by the resistance of it. This is the totality. The illusion overlooks the resistance. Hence accumulates pain, misses automation.

Seeking ends and authentic living starts when you do not postpone, when you stop all questions ‘about existence’ not because of your inability to find the answer but because the questioner is not separate from existence, from ‘what is happening’. ‘You’ is the total field of Existence. Who will question whom?
