Third Eye


Is there any power- God or some other, which controls life or the Universe? Why do we face pain and uncertainty? Why do bad or wrong things happen?

One has to see the limit of thinking, the function of thinking to come to the mystery. Thinking is a device for communication. What happens or what exists is not product of thinking. Put your hand in cold water. There is sensation in the body and brain. Thinking can be used to explain only.

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?

There is the field of senses (touching, seeing and so on)-bound by time and space and the field of memory and imagination, thinking-fluid, not bound. The field of senses is being renewed every moment. This is total field -the field of senses and the field of memory and imagination.

Then what about ideas about God and so on?

You may name the total field as God but the total field is not an object or something, you can refer. You can not separate yourself from the total field and discuss about the total field. You and the world is a singular process, is the total field.

What ever comes before you including stars, galaxies and so on can not be the source. It is an object. It can have some use, function. To come to the source, the subject (you) is also to be included. To see that subject-object is a singular process rests all seeking.


 Anything you face or happens that troubles you, if not immediate physical danger, is psychologically uncomfortable to you.

Now you want to dilute, explain away, escape the pain by explanations about God, soul, karma and so on.
Can you see this clearly?
When you see that explanations are only solaces-you become one with your pain
from where you want to run away by satisfactory answers.
Leaving the comfort of answers charges the brain to be one with the mystery.

What a human being wants?
He wants that his desires should be fulfilled. No problems should tinker it.

Pain (any uneasiness) and uncertainty cause a resistance in actualizing this state.

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

This throwing away the resistance separates one from totality.

Mind instead of absorbing the resistance-coins comforting ideas to solve it, to explain it away.

The resistance you feel is also within the totality. Once you absorb the resistance without any explanation-the total field is realized.

(All resistance, you experience is psychological discomfort, if not immediate physical danger. To absorb this discomfort without any explanation is the key.)

Everything exists as contrast. Nothing is accomplished as final, dead end. Everything is accomplished against the contrast of desire, uncertainty. The illusion keeps one busy as if some accomplishment, some possession, some relation, some idea, some period of time will relieve one. Even when we get what we want, we remain perturbed as our demand for stable relief is not met. One never questions this demand. One misses the continuous, moment to moment play of desire, uncertainty and certainty, accomplishment-the self-sustained process.

At any point- whether you get what you want or do not get it - new imaginations, new desires, new ideas are continuously flooding your mind. Once you see that the process does not have a satisfactory end-you are on the Original ground.

When you do not like or understand ‘what is happening’ or you face something bizarre-you coin theories to explain it away or adjust that you will know the answers in future through science or economics or tomorrow will be alright and so on. When you are stuck up and want to find the answers now, no explanation religious or scientific is able to assuage the pain of these questions.

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 Life is sustained.

It is not the inability to find the answers but seeing that all answers simply give relief to the mind, cause distraction in seeing ‘what is’ ‘as is’.

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.

No one is essentially unhappy unless one is in immediate physical danger. One is simply feeling psychological discomfort due to something not happening as you wish or due to uncertainty. And psychological comfort-discomfort is the non-stoppable process, the aliveness of the brain.

(And when there is physical danger, there is no time to think, discuss, even about happiness or unhappiness-your whole energy is concentrated in saving yourself.)

Whatever you may get in the form of money or possessions and so on-the relief, the pleasure experienced has its momentum only for sometime. Brain requires fresh momentum to operate. To see that no pleasure, no relief can sustain is to connect to the Original. Now what you want, what you desire provides momentum to the maturing of your desire, to manifestation.

Things do not happen as you wish. Thoughts, apprehensions do come to your mind, which you do not like. It means the ‘wishing entity’ is not in control. It means ‘wishing’ and ‘happening’ are related in a frictional mode. Truth is revealed when you are comfortable with this friction.

We avoid facing fundamental resistance which life presents to us time and again when we encounter discomforting, irritating situations. We are attracted by religious-spiritual and other ideas as if discomfort, irritation, we face is something ‘wrong’, ‘alien’ as if some permanent solution lies somewhere. We are carried away as if someone else (guru and so on) has comfortably solved the enigma of life.

The friction that things are okay, things are not okay sustains the brain.

The friction between this moment and the next gives momentum to life. The friction is unending. When you are relaxed in this moment, whatever be the situation, image for the next moment ( comfortable to you) is automatically created. This is the natural momentum on which brain works. When you are not at rest with this moment, you are trying to fix the next moment to your pattern. You miss the automation. You become busy in fighting an illusory battle. 

Life Force is not an idea or explanation

posted Oct 23, 2017, 11:16 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Oct 24, 2017, 10:38 AM ]

Life force is not an idea or explanation. You feel the force when you feel angry, when you feel confusion, when you feel the pull of any desire, when you meet any unexpected positive or negative happening. There is ‘nothing’ behind this feeling, this vibration.

Can you see the pull of any desire-desire to eat something, sexual desire, desire to acquire something and so on? Instead of feeling the pull of desire, instead of feeling the pull of contradictory thoughts that arise with the desire, we become busy in taking sides by condemning or justifying the desire-the process of desire is vitiated. Seeing the pull of desire, being with the pull without any ideation is the connection to the Original energy.

Desire is wanting something in actual, physical, material terms from moment to moment. And not that ‘I want happiness’, ‘I want peace’, ‘I want more money’ and so on. This is simply seeking relief (illusory) through thinking. To see the arising of desire is your connection to the Original.

You are thinking as if you will feel settled, okay, free when you have more money, when your questions about life, about existence are answered, solved, when your children grow up and are settled, when you reach at some position in your work or job and so on.

By this thinking, you are trying to seek relief away from now, by depending upon tomorrow.

Can you see that you are in that state now, you are in a relieved state now as you are not in immediate physical danger? Now your mind automatically forms the image of what you want, what you want to do. The solution, the fulfillment happens.

If the solution, the fulfillment does not happen?

This question does not bother you as there is no satisfactory end to what you want. The desires, the images, the demands are continuously happening.

You have seen the self-sustained process of life.

Freedom is Now

It is quite easy, convenient to slip into some stress relieving, tension relieving device or strategy-music, entertainment, meditation, medication, religious-spiritual activities and so on. Any device, any strategy you choose boomerangs as brain can not stay relieved, stay pleased. One may become addicted to the device or strategy. Instead of slipping into diversions-can one stay with the discomforting feeling and see the emergence of action? The Original may touch you here. This is not to be applied but just watching the process is the key. Stress-relief is seen as an auto process. Now your actions are charged with passion and not bound to compulsion-relief pattern.

If only for once you touch anger, fear, anxiety, sorrow without any escape, without any explanation, justification, condemnation-you touch the fluid ground, total ground. No philosophy can now entice you. You have touched the current of life.
You are under the illusion as if sorrow and so on are to be covered up or glossed over or thrown away. Nothing can be thrown out of the mind. You are not feeling sorrow, anger, fear, anxiety (uncertainty) but simply trying to throw them away from your mind. This is what causes the trouble.


 

Life has evolved as multi connected process.

posted Jan 23, 2017, 9:05 PM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Jan 23, 2017, 10:25 PM ]

Why the issue of Fundamental Understanding (spirituality) arises?

Life has evolved as more and more multi connected process. As you are not directly producing the goods and services you are using. We are using almost all the goods and services produced by others. You are connected to the world-if you see the world as your world, whether comforting or bizarre. To feel connected with the world (whether comforting or bizarre) is the whole point.


You can not separate yourself from what is happening in the world (good, positive or bad, negative). You are connected with the negative also as you are using goods and services produced by others.
Then what?
When you face anything wrong, negative, irritating-can you feel, bear this discomfort without any explanation as you are also connected in some way with the wrong, negative, irritating situation? You have made a dent in transforming your world. Now any action (or no-action) is relaxed, creative. You are on the total ground.

Can you see that you need no philosophies, teachings about life if you can absorb, dissolve ‘pain and uncertainty’ (resistance) you experience in daily life?

If you can come to this question-you are on the Original ground.

But why should I bear this resistance?

Because you are not operating as alone in the world but with others.

You are using goods and services, almost everything created, produced by others.


In order to be in the world, in order to enjoy connectivity (which is life), in order to enjoy possessions, relations, situations-you have to absorb the resistance you face in daily life. ‘You are connected to the world’ is a singular structure, complete structure.
Your connection to life, connection to the world is weakened if you reject the disliked content (as you are not absorbing the disliked feeling). And to absorb the disliked feeling is totally within your purview. ‘You’ is total field.

Steps to any reform or solution will always face conflicting interests. The integral solution is not wait or hope or predicting doomsday-but seeing that no one is separately, comfortably, safely, securely placed. No one can separate oneself from what is happening in the world (good, positive or bad, negative). One is connected with the negative also as one is using goods and services produced by others. Seeing the connectivity relaxes the brain. Now any action is creative.

You (every body) is dependent upon goods and services produced by others. You can not operate as separate, safe, secured, independent. You find yourself on the Original ground.

Now whatever you do (or not do) is creative, is your contribution to the world. You are attuned to totality, to abundance.

Brain operates through contrasts only

posted Dec 21, 2016, 3:20 AM by Y V Chawla

You can not see ‘what is True’-the Original- by thinking that it is comforting, secured, good, right. Be ready for the disappointment-if you actually want to find ‘what is True’. You have to make space for discomforting, insecurity, bad, wrong.
The Universe is working through duality, through contrasts, through alternates, through interdependence. The illusion sees as if one can remain psychologically safe, secured, assured. Hence dullness, decay. When one is comfortable with confusion, contradictions, ambiguity-one is attuned to auto balancing. One is in the limitless field. 


Unless you are okay with ‘whatever what is’-all your actions are reactions, creating more conflicts, more disorders. You are simply seeking relief by solutions by rejecting, by escaping ‘what is’-thus remain attached to ‘what is’. You become attached to anything, by rejecting which you seek relief, as brain works through contrast. You automatically attract what you reject. Once this inclination to relief is noticed, fused state takes over. Now any action (or no-action) is relaxed, conscious.

Can you question-why things happen which you do not like, which are discomforting, bizarre

posted Sep 19, 2016, 10:15 AM by Y V Chawla

Can you question-why things happen which you do not like, which are discomforting, bizarre?
Can you keep the question alive?
You try to explain them away by explanations, ideas including religious-spiritual.
Can you just stop all explanations and see ‘what is ‘as is’?
The Original energy has touched you.

When your logic, your reasoning, your comfort zone, your conclusion is shattered, see what happens. It creates feeling of uneasiness in you. Now you try to escape this uneasiness, this pain by ideas, explanations, by complaining, blaming, feeling guilty. Can you close the escape route? The whole energy is concentrated here. Action is relaxed and conscious. The touch of the Original may happen.

There is physical insecurity, when you are in immediate physical danger. In such a situation, there is immediacy of action. Thinking, even thinking, ‘why it happened’ is disabled. Then there is psychological insecurity, it is feeling of uncertainty, fear, risk about tomorrow, about how others may behave. Can you feel psychological insecurity? When you do not react to this feeling, it is absorbed, transformed. You are attuned to supreme relaxation with unending friction to operate.

It is not that any problem or any issue troubles you.
It is your running away to religious-spiritual ideas, activities as solutions, as relief that complicates the problem. If you do not run away, you are forced to be with the problem. Solution emerges. The touch of the Original may happen here.

We wait; we seek as if things can be finally resolved. One lives superficially waiting, seeking. There is continuous disturbance and adjustment. This clarity puts you on the total ground, the magical ground. 


You want to do away with the natural friction on which life is sustained by thinking that things will be alright in future, that some security, some idea including religious-spiritual, some technique can save you from facing pain and uncertainty. This thinking keeps you trapped and attached to illusory reliefs. The energy remains dissipated.

If you feel pain, uneasiness, discomfort, challenge ‘as it is’, only then you can enjoy, celebrate. Otherwise you are simply ‘seeking relief’ by running from pain, compulsion, discomfort, challenge. It means every moment is either creating challenge for your brain or is celebrating. You are neither going to the past to gloss over the challenge nor thinking about future for relief.
Challenge-celebration is seen as the endless process. You are on the self-sustained ground.

Everything is operating as resistance and acceptance. This is the totality.
There is continuous disturbance and adjustment. There is no permanent settlement.
Nothing can be stabilized. Nothing exists independently. Everything exists as contrast to some other thing.
Desire provides contrast to the maturing of your intention. Maturing of any desire can not take you to stable relief, stable pleasure. The process is endless, effortless.

When you do not like or understand ‘what is happening’ or you face something bizarre-you coin theories to explain it away or adjust that you will know the answers in future through science or economics or tomorrow will be alright and so on. When you are stuck up and want to find the answers now, no explanation religious or scientific is able to assuage the pain of these questions.
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 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.

Desire, uncertainty and manifestation

posted Jul 30, 2016, 4:17 AM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Nov 21, 2017, 4:34 AM ]

Ideas, philosophies-including religious-spiritual, others are enticing you that by doing or possessing something-you will come to some satisfactory stable state. You will remain happy ever after. Unless you see the fallacy of this hope-you will continue to shop for something, which is not available. The relief you want is only as you are working with compulsions or acting by complaining, blaming, feeling guilty. You are not seeing fullness now where you are. This is a jerk for the mind to see that –unless you are in immediate physical danger, any discomfort is psychological discomfort only. And psychological comfort-discomfort is the non-stoppable movement. You are grounded now.

The only thing that you have to notice is that you are feeling psychologically discomfortable time and again due to irritating situations at work; loss, defame, relationship problems; fear about future; fear due to some belief. Can you see that all these are psychological discomforts as your life is not in danger? One shies away from this discomfort or tries to cover it up with ideas, explanations. Can one notice this movement? Noticing this is concentration of total energy. You have landed yourself in the magical world.



Brain can not work without contrast. Desire, uncertainty, any problem, any disliked situation provide contrast to manifestation, to what you want. This is the endless process. The illusion keeps one trapped as if there can be stability, relief, permanent solution, stable pleasure. The touch of the Original is missed.

Whatever you may get in the form of money or possessions and so on-the relief, the pleasure experienced has its momentum only for sometime. Brain requires fresh momentum to operate. To see that no pleasure, no relief can sustain is to connect to the Original. Now what you want, what you desire provides momentum to the maturing of your desire, to manifestation.


You are thinking as if you will feel settled, okay, free when you have more money, when your questions about life, about existence are answered, solved, when your children grow up and are settled, when you reach at some position in your work or job and so on. By this thinking, you are trying to seek relief away from now, by depending upon tomorrow. This relief never comes, is essentially short lived. Can you feel settled, okay, free now in whatever situation you are-it is only psychological discomfort (if not immediate physical danger)? All desires, all problems are psychological discomforts. Can you notice this? This noticing instantly connects you to the ground. Now your desire, your discomfort provides contrast to manifestation, to the maturing of your desire, to the new. The process is endless. You have touched the current of life.

Enlightenment is not some comfort zone

posted Mar 13, 2016, 8:56 PM by Y V Chawla

One takes as if by following spiritual practices, quotes, books-resistance of pain and uncertainty, one faces in daily life will be over. Unless this resistance is faced, absorbed ‘as it is’ (that is, without any explanation), there is no chance of finding ‘what is True’.

If one is not feeling the resistance, which life is showing-one is acting, working with compulsions, complaints and seeking relief through entertainment, intoxications, religious-spiritual ideas.

Fundamental clarity dawns when you absorb the friction (without any explanation) which life is showing in the form of loss, defame, relationship problems and so on. Otherwise you are simply seeking relief from this friction by ideas, activities-thus remain seeking, remain stuck.


It is not that you have to learn something to see the Truth. You have to be ‘as you are’ (without any explanation) to see the Truth. You are thinking as if some one else has comfortably solved the enigma of life, hoping as if dependence upon others will take you to the Truth. Unless this hope crashes, there is no chance of finding ‘what is True’.

Enlightenment is not some comfort zone. It is to be comfortable with whatever ‘what is’ at this moment, with ‘as you are’, with ‘what you are feeling, experiencing’. There is no escape route.

The whole energy is concentrated here.

Any teaching, any practice that promises stable relief, stable pleasure stops you from discovering ‘what is True’. Brain can not operate without contrast. Whatever you may hold, know, possess or practise-you can not become psychologically safe, secured, certain. Some uncertainty, some lack, some need will come up for you to move. It is your continued exposure to uncertainty and ambiguity that gives contrast to manifestation, certainty-connects you to the Original.

Can we not live in abundance without any problem?

posted Nov 24, 2015, 8:14 PM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Nov 25, 2015, 12:23 AM ]

Can you see that any problem, sense of lack is only psychological discomfort, if it is not immediate physical danger or acute physical pain?

Can you further see that you can not have psychologically relieved, done state? Psychological comfort-discomfort is the non-stoppable movement.

You are carried away as if you will feel good, relaxed when any problem is solved or when you acquire something.

Either we are seeking relief from disturbance or we feel so much relieved, secured that nothing disturbs us. We are thinking (illusion) as if there is something as stable relief.

We are trying (under the illusion) to fix up ourselves psychologically as relieved.

Can you notice this?

One is not feeling happy, one is not enjoying. One is simply seeking relief by the solution of some problem or by acquiring something.

Or One is stuck up in entertainments, intoxications to cover up pain, compulsion one experiences at work.

 

You have to see ‘what is’ ‘as is’ whether comforting, positive, good or negative, bizarre, dreadful and not run to explanations to cover up your uneasiness.

The friction that things are okay, things are not okay sustains the brain.

The friction between this moment and the next gives momentum to life. The friction is unending. When you are relaxed in this moment, whatever be the situation, your interest for the next moment is automatically created. This is the natural momentum on which brain works. When you are not at rest with this moment, you are trying to fix the next moment to your pattern. You miss the automation. You become busy in fighting an illusory battle.

 Now you are not seeking relief from discomfort but seeing ‘what you want or what you want to do’ in any situation. Can one feel good, relaxed now (as one is safe and secured now) and plant the intention to solve any issue or to acquire something?

The momentum of discomfort-relief is transformed as desire-fulfilment. You are on the magical ground. You are on the total ground. Now the abundance does not leave you.

Disease, psychological discomfort and balancing of hormones

posted Oct 8, 2015, 10:30 PM by Y V Chawla   [ updated Oct 18, 2015, 7:56 AM ]

Psychological discomfort, emotional pain, any uneasy feeling if not experienced ‘as it is’-that is, it is escaped or covered up by comforting ideas, explanations or by complaining, blaming, feeling guilty- is stored, accumulated in the body, erupting as illness, physical pain and so on.

Escaping, covering up gives (illusory) comfort. One is trapped in securing this comfort.

Unless you are in immediate physical danger or acute physical pain-all discomforts 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. You are open to wonder now.  You are on the Original ground.

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. Hence dullness, decay. Acknowledging uncertainty, ambiguity opens up to the limitless field.
