182From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

Conjure, if you will, the cosmic out-breath as ‘our’ in-breath, and ‘our’ out-breath as the cosmic in-breath… THE COSMIC KISS…! Come beloveds, take a deep breath in… and a deep breath out… breathe in, breathe out… breathe in, breathe out… and become aware that actually it is not ‘you/me’ that is breathing … but breathing is happening through a ‘you/me’. And as we rest unto this awareness – we move into the impersonality of what humanity considers its most personal private act – breathing! We move from personal breath – to the cosmic in-breath and out-breath! We move from personal – to universal consciousness! We become Cosmos/God/Consciousness breathing through a ‘you/me’! We move into true surrender- what deeper surrender can there be than that our very breath is what Cosmos/God/Consciousness chooses to breathe into and out of –  a seeming ‘you /me’!

What DEEPER SURRENDER than the awareness that whatever Cosmos chooses to experience and explore – is what the Cosmos activates with our every in breath-  our Now- current blue prints- current events and actions… thoughts… feelings – everything is activated by the in-breath that the cosmos breathes into us! And whatever the cosmos chooses to dissolve – is what it draws out as our out-breath- to release …and the cosmos to dissolve. Indeed it’s got nothing to do with ‘you/me’… events deeds thoughts feeling are happening dissolving as per the cosmos..!

Breathe in breath out- in this we not only abide in deepest surrender – but also effortlessly abide BEYOND THE EGO-NOTION – as universal Self !  Becoming one with the cosmos… the cosmos breathing in whatever the cosmos chooses to activate…experience…think…feel;  and breathing out whatever the cosmos chooses to dissolve… release… where are ‘you/me’ in this? Effortlessly there is no ‘you/me’….! Come beloveds  – breathe in and breath out as the Cosmos – instead of trying to fight, overcome or move from the ego notion (which only establishes it firmer)  … by abiding in the cosmic kiss…moment to moment breath awareness as the Cosmos… automatically there is no ‘me’- ego notion…to fight or overcome or move from!

79THE FULL FLOW OF THE MEDITATION (AS IT FLOWED THROUGH A ‘ME’) – TO RECEIVE ITS ENERGETIC FREQUENCY BEYOND THE SPOKEN WORD (On reading it may sound repetitive- but yet during the mediation it is energetically being encoded into each one)

Come beloveds to that place where you gather with us week after week…no physical space but the higher and finer frequencies…feel a sense of vast openness…vast vistas all around you and relax…and take a deep breath in and a deep breath out…breathe in…breathe out…breathe in…breathe out…breathe in…breathe out …and become aware that actually it is not you who is breathing in and out… it is more like you are being breathed in…and breathed out…the breathing is happening through a you… …it is effortless  …a spontaneous breathing in and breathing out happening through you… become aware of this. Observe the breathing in and out…in and out…at some point you become aware that you are not breathing in and breathing out…it  is happening through a you.

In analogy…see a fish tank…it is huge…lovely coral in it… breathing and breathing out…but it is the pump machine in that tank which is doing the breathing…not the coral itself…in the same way become aware as you breathe in and out…in and out……it happens without you making any effort. In this become aware of EVERYONE around you…how they are breathing in and out involuntarily…spontaneously…effortlessly… become aware of HUMANITY breathing in and out and in and out and in and out  …no one is actually doing the breathing…they are being breathed through…! Become aware of all the ANIMALS…the birds…the fish…each one is breathing in and out…but none of them are actually breathing…it is happening involuntarily to every aspect within existence…THE PLANTS…THE BIRDS…THE BEES… is being breathed in and out. Do not take our word for this… see how the in breath and out breath is spontaneous…involuntary through a ‘you’… humanity… animals…  birds… bees…and plants…and flowers…and every blade of grass…and become aware that actually it’s the COSMOS breathing in and out…in and out… in and out…

AND IN THIS BECOME AWARE THAT YOU ARE ONE WITH THE IN BREATH AND OUT BREATH OF THE COSMOS… IT IS THE COSMOS THAT BREATHES OUT AND IN… AND OUT AND IN… AND OUT AND IN.

ONCE AGAIN IN ANALOGY… your hand doesn’t breathe… your foot doesn’t breathe… your nose doesn’t breathe…and yet as ‘you’ breath all these body parts receive their breath… in the same way you do not breathe… but as the cosmos breathes… all within the cosmos become part of the cosmos in breath and out breath… and in breath and out breath.

ONCE AGAIN IN ANALOGY… when you breathe you think that the breath you take goes uniformly to every part of your body… but that is not true beloveds… from your in breath whatever each part of your body requires, is what that part of the body receives, and once again in the same way as the cosmos breathes in and out… you are like its body parts…and thus as the cosmos breathes , ‘you’ as a part of the cosmic body are getting exactly that which is required for ‘you’ to exist and function.Come beloveds  breathe in and out… and in and out… allow the cosmos to breathe through the you… in this awareness become part of the in breath and out breath of the universe…

AND BECOME AWARE WHATEVER THE COSMOS… GOD… CONSCIOUSNESS (CALL IT WHAT YOU WILL) CHOOSES TO EXPERIENCE AND EXPLORE IS WHAT IS ACTIVATED IN ‘YOU’ WITH YOU’RE IN BREATH…! WHATEVER THE COSMOS CHOOSES TO RELEASE… LET GO… DISSOLVE… IS WHAT IT DRAWS OUT AS YOUR OUT BREATH! The cosmos activates with your every in breath… your Now…current blue print… current events and actions thoughts… feelings… everything is activated by the cosmos itself … it activates in each one that which the cosmos chooses to experience.

BECOME AWARE OF THIS… with your in breath is the cosmos breathing into you… bringing to life… activating that blue print required in every now… activating those experiences and events you are going through… giving life to whatever are the thoughts… giving life to your feelings… whatever the cosmos chooses to experience… explore… and know is what the cosmos breathes into you… whatever the cosmos chooses to release… let go… dissolve is what the cosmos breathes out of you… so breathe in and breathe out… breathe in and breathe out… breathe in and breathe out…but  become aware that you are not breathing in and breathing out… the cosmos is breathing in and out through a you… just the way your body parts don’t breathe when you breathe… sit in this for a few moments… become fully aware of the involuntary… spontaneous in breath and out breath… you have to do nothing… the cosmos is breathing through you… and in this even as you breathe in and out… and in and out… you become increasingly one with the cosmos in breath and the cosmos out breath… in breath… out breath… in breath out breath… i

IN THIS YOU AUTOMATICALLY BECOME ONE WITH THE COSMOS… WHERE ARE YOU ?

AND IN THIS BECOME AWARE OF THE IMPERSONALITY OF THE MOST PRIVATE AND PERSONAL ACT KNOWN TO MAN…HIS BREATH…WHAT YOU HAVE CLAIMED AS YOUR BREATH… YOUR IN BREATH… YOUR OUT BREATH… YOUR MOST MOMENT TO MOMENT PRIVATE ACT IS NOT YOURS… come  become aware of the impersonal in this most seemingly personal and private act of man… his very breath is not his… it’s the universe who breathes in and breathes out… breathes in and breathes out… breathes in and breathes out…so breathe in and out…and in and out… become aware of humanity breathing in and out… become aware of the animal kingdom… the plant kingdom… the bird kingdom breathing in and out… and become aware that its actually the cosmos breathing in and out…! 

311BY THIS VERY SIMPLE AWARENESS… YOU BECOME ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE… ONE WITH THE COSMIC IN BREATH… THE COSMIC OUT BREATH …AND YOU MOVE INTO TRUE SURRENDER …you surrender even your breath… you become aware that whatever the universe chooses to experience is what you are going to breathe in… whatever the universe chooses to release is what you are going to breathe out… what deeper surrender can there be…when you know that it is the universe that breathes in whatever you are experiencing or thinking or feeling in the now… it’s the universe who is releasing…dissolving whatever you breathe out in the now… what deeper surrender beloveds than surrendering your very breath.So breathe in… breath out… breathe in… breathe out… breathe in… breathe out… become aware it’s not you who is breathing in… breathing out…you are being breathed in and breathed out… the universe breathes in and out… the universe breathes in and out… the universe breathes in whatever the universe chooses to activate of your blueprint… the universe breathes in whatever you choose to experience… every thought… every feeling… everything that’s ever  happening to you… is what the universe chooses through it’s in breath through you… sit in this for a few moments…in the impersonality of the most personal and private act known to mankind… in the complete surrender even of your breath… in knowing that whatever is happening… whatever you experience… whatever are your thoughts… your feelings…your actions the universe is activating in you through your in breath. Whatever is being released is whatever the universe is releasing through your out breath…

IN THIS YOU ARE NOT ONLY ESTABLISHED IN THE DEEPEST SURRENDER… BUT YOU MOVE AUTOMATICALLY BEYOND THE EGO NOTION INTO THE UNIVERSAL SELF… you become one with the cosmos… the cosmos breathes into you…the cosmos breathes out of you… whatever the cosmos chooses to activate…experience…think…feel… whatever the cosmos chooses to dissolve… release… where are you in this? There is no you.

THEREFORE IN OUR GATHERINGS WITH YOU… INSTEAD OF TEACHING YOU TO FIGHT THE EGO… TO OVERCOME THE EGO…WHICH IS NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE YOU THE EGO… ARE FIGHTING EGO… WE SIMPLY ATTACH YOU… YOUR ENERGY FIELDS… YOUR AWARENESS TO THE HIGHER YOU… in that automatically the ego notion dissolves… experience that now… beloveds… as your breathe in and out and in and out and in and out… there is no you… it is the cosmos breathing in and out… whatever you may be thinking in the now is what the cosmos is choosing to think… it is the cosmos’s thoughts not yours… whatever you are feeling in the now is what the cosmos chooses to feel… it’s not your feeling… whatever experiences… events are happening in your life in the now is what the cosmos activates  to experience… it’s got nothing to do with the you… surrender even your breath… impersonal consciousness rather than personal…and as you become one with the universe or the cosmos… where is the you ?there is no you.Breathe in… breathe out… but now in the awareness the cosmos is breathing in… the cosmos is breathing out… every in breathe activates in you what the cosmos chooses to experience of itself…any out breath releases from you whatever the cosmos is choosing to release…being done with… surrender… impersonal consciousness… and most importantly you have become one with the cosmos… becoming one with the cosmos automatically there is no you.

NOW WE WILL TAKE YOU A LITTLE DEEPER… AS LONG AS YOU ARE THE EGO… INDIVIDUATED NOTION… YOU ARE BEING BREATHED IN AND YOU ARE BREATHED OUT… BECAUSE THE COSMOS ACTUALLY BREATHES OUT ALL THAT IT CHOOSES TO EXPERIENCE AND EXPLORE…AND THE COSMOS ACTUALLY BREATHES IN WHAT IT CHOOSES TO DISSOLVE… but because yet you are an individuated ego notion… when the cosmos breaths out… it becomes your in breath… and when you breathe out it becomes the cosmic in breath… so visualize this… beloveds…the cosmos breathes out whatever it chooses to experience/ explore…you breathe that in… breathed into you… it activates your current blue print… minute to minute… many of you wonder how your blue prints are activated… this is how it is… it activates your events…your feelings… your thoughts… and what you breathe out… the cosmos breathes in to dissolve forever… and if you are doing this well… you will become aware that THIS IS A COSMIC KISS… the cosmos breathes out what you breathe in…cosmic kisses into you… it activates through that kiss your current blue prints… your feelings… your thoughts… and as you breathe out into the mouth of the cosmos… it takes away all that is not required…that is redundant… that is done with…that doesn’t serve you in the now…so for a few moments… beloveds be locked in this cosmic kiss … and just like a kiss activates many… many triggers within you… this cosmic kiss… your in breath activates your current blue print… your current events…your current thoughts…your feelings… moment to moment…breath is… MOMENT TO MOMENT TO MOMENT IS THIS HAPPENING… and you breathe out and the cosmos breathes it in… and takes away all that you don’t require… see this imagery whichever way it’s shown to you… it is a very important aspect of  today’s meditation… you are locked in this cosmic kiss… moment to moment.

THEREFORE NOW SEE THE COSMOS BREATHE OUT… AND SEE YOURSELF BREATHE IN WHATEVER IS GOOD FOR YOUR NEW PHYSICAL BODY… AND BREATHE OUT INTO THE COSMIC MOUTH WHATEVER YOUR NEW BODY/ PHYSICAL BODY DOESN’T NEED… and now once again the cosmic kiss breathes out  and you breathe in whatever is required for your new EMOTIONAL BODY… and you breathe out…you breathe out into the cosmic mouth whatever this emotional body doesn’t require… and the cosmic takes it all in… dissolves it…and once again the cosmos breathes out in you…breathe in whatever is required for your new MENTAL BODY… and you breathe out into the cosmic mouth whatever your new mental body doesn’t require.

YOU MAY EVEN VISUALIZE YOURSELF BREATHING IN WHATEVER IT IS YOU CHOOSE TO EXPERIENCE OR ACTIVATE IN THE NOW… BECAUSE YOUR VERY DESIRE /NEEDS IS WHAT THE UNIVERSE CHOOSES TO ACTIVATE WITHIN YOU… YOU MAY SEE YOURSELF BREATHING OUT WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO RELEASE… because your very desire to release means the universe chooses to release that through you… your desires are not yours… beloveds… they are mine…the cosmos… i breathe in to you what i choose to experience… i breathe out from you whatever is done… there is no you… your thoughts are not yours… your feelings are not yours.

Breathe in… breathe out… breathe in… breathe out…  see humanity breathing in… and out…see the animal kingdom… the bird kingdom… the fish… the insects… and the flowers… and the grass… even the stones…the  grain of sand… BECOME ONE WITH THE COSMOS IN BREATH… AND OUT BREATH… MOVE INTO IMPERSONAL CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH THE MOST PERSONAL ACT KNOWN TO MANKIND… MOVE INTO SURRENDER THROUGH YOUR  VERY MOMENT TO MOMENT BREATH… MOVE BEYOND THE EGO NOTION BY BECOMING THE COSMOS WHO IS BREATHING IN AND OUT… WHERE IS THE YOU ? where is the you beloveds ? it’s the cosmos breathing in…its cosmos breathing out… the cosmos activating… the cosmos releasing.

AND AS YOU CONTINUE TO DO THIS… BECOME AWARE THAT AS AWARENESS – YOU CANNOT BE THAT WHICH YOU ARE AWARE OF-  SO WE ARE TAKING  YOU EVEN DEEPER… you are aware of the cosmos breathing in and out… you cannot be the cosmos… so we took you from your personal consciousness into the universal consciousness… and now we take you even beyond into still awareness…!! If I am aware I cannot be that which I am aware of…beloveds… so if I am aware of the cosmic in breath and out breath… if I am aware of the cosmos breathing in and out… I am not the cosmos… I am not the in breath and the out breath… I am not those blue prints and those actions and feelings… I am awareness… I am still awareness… what you call the gap between your breath. This is a very powerful potent understanding being imbedded into your very subconscious today… the work we have done with your bodies enables you to receive this highest of gyaan… don’t intellectualize it… don’t seek to understand it as yet… breath in… breathe out… you cannot help but breathe in and breathe out…at some point become aware that it is not you who is breathing in… it is the cosmos… in that you make the first shift…from you… personal consciousness- ego self …into universal consciousness/ impersonal Self- and in this you abide knowing that you are the cosmos… the cosmos breathes in the now whatever  the cosmos chooses to experience and explore… and remove.

AND THEN THE SECOND SHIFT…AS YOU ABIDE HERE… CONTINUE TO BREATHE IN AND OUT AS THE COSMOS… AND AT SOME POINT YOU BECOME AWARE… THAT IF I AM AWARE I CANNOT BE WHAT I AM AWARE OF… SO I AM NOT THE COSMOS…I AM NOT THIS IN BREATH AND OUT BREATH… I AM NOT THIS GAME OF MAYA… I AM NOT THE DUALITY EXPERIENCED… I AM NOT THE CREATOR WHO HAS CREATED THE EXISTENCE AND THE DRAMA… i am not the breathing self …i am not breath… i am beyond breath even while i am breathing… i am beyond duality even within it… i am beyond the physical even while retaining a physical body… i am awareness… which in your simple parlance is the gap between the breaths.

In this awareness that I am stillness… do those steps again… see yourself breathe in and out… in and out… become aware that you don’t breathe in and out… it is the cosmos which breathes in and out… so become the cosmos… in that become aware that if I am aware of the cosmos… I am not even the cosmos… I am simply awareness… in tHIS YOU MOVE FROM PERSONAL CONSCIOUSNESS TO IMPERSONAL CONSCIOUSNESS TO BEYOND CONSCIOUSNESS…. YOU MOVE FROM EGO SELF TO UNIVERSAL SELF TO BEYOND THE I’S…BOTH THE ‘I’/ ‘I’… YOU MOVE FROM BEING THE CREATOR OF YOUR LIFE- TO THE COSMOS BEING THE CREATOR – TO BEYOND THE GAME OF CREATION… AND ITS ALL SIMPLY THROUGH YOUR BREATH….

BECOME AWARE AGAIN THAT IT IS NOT YOU WHO IS BREATHING… YOUR LEG DOESN’T BREATHE… YOUR FINGER DOESN’T BREATH… but when you breathe the finger/ the leg/ the ear all get the breath…in the same way you don’t breathe… it is the cosmos breathes… you are being breathed. Indeed  ‘you’ decide what your hand has to pull… where your leg has to take you… your leg and hand doesn’t decide… in the same way you don’t decide…it is the cosmos which decides  where to go and what to do… and that only happens through a you-  surrender of the deepest order …

BREATHE IN… BREATHE OUT… BREATHE IN… … MANY TRADITIONS ASK YOU TO FOCUS ON YOUR PHYSICAL BREATH… THEY ASK YOU TO BECOME AWARE OF THE GAP BETWEEN THE BREATH… BUT WE HAVE WORKED IN REVERSE… WE HAVE ALREADY TAKEN YOU TO THE GAP BETWEEN THE BREATHS!  Breathe in… breathe out… allow yourself to be breathed in… allow yourself to be breathed out… allow the cosmic kiss to happen …know whatever the cosmos chooses to experience is what it breathes it into you… whatever the cosmos chooses to release is what it sucks out as your out breath… and then become aware that what you are aware of you cannot be… you are the pure stillness… beyond the cosmos… and its plane of duality.

When you breathe in… your stomach must come out… when you breathe out… it must go in… then you are truly in sync with the cosmic breath… now even as you breathe become aware of  all that we have imbedded in you today… feel the cosmos going through you… feel the cosmos activate whatever it chooses… see the cosmos kiss away whatever it wants to draw  out from ‘you’  and release. And simultaneously become aware… you are awareness and not what you are aware of …be in this awareness for the remainder of your week as you breathe in and breathe out… not ONLY in meditation but through the day as you breathe in and breathe out… allow what we have embedded in you today to be  somewhere consciously playing out in your  mind…  a triple fold work has been done today… the move from personal consciousness to impersonal…  and then to move into still awareness… all through the simple act of your in breath and your out breath.

Greetings from breath itself.

You may open your eyes whenever you are ready

And so it is… And so it is… And so it is.

Peeling The Cosmic Onion – Tarot And Quantum Physics


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

On such things as matter, we have all been wrong- what we called matter is energy whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter…                                                                                                                                                            – Albert Einstein

At this point I would like to include our more rational readers to join us, by adding a new perspective for you to view tarot through! Lets become aware that Quantum physics is also one of those bridges, reaching the same source, the same field where all information(touched upon in the introduction) lies And amazing as it may sound, the physicists are just discovering what tarot and other metaphysical systems have known all along! (This is why they have been called metaphysical. Meta means ‘beyond or in addition to’ physics!) And those who need the backing of science to ascertain their truths may be pleasantly surprised to learn that the basic principles underlying tarot are in complete alignment with quantum physics; and yet it offers its own vital input, as each system must in order to contribute and exist.

Every book of quantum physics outlines how we live in a vibrational universe, where everything you see, and don’t, is energy vibrating at different frequencies. So yes, stone, animal, this computer, your chairs, tarot cards, you and me and our thoughts and feelings is energy vibrating at different frequencies; and what you cant see is what we will call pure energy.

I want you to conjure this in your minds! Visualize that you are surrounded in a field of energy: some of it already the material people, events, things, and situations of your life; and the rest is pure energy- your raw material! Shaped by your thoughts and feelings! Shaped by your energy signatures interacting with this pure energy all around you. Visualize your thoughts and feelings and their frequencies as instructions you emit to this pure energy into what shape it takes: ping ping ping!!!!

And thus do we each create our own’ reality’. The ‘outside’, what we call ‘our life’, and ‘our world’ only reflects what is within us. The people and relationships which we enjoy or not, the events that transpire or do not, and the things that we have or don’t is directly our manifestation based on our energy vibrations, and thus our personal responsibility. We in fact are creators moment to moment, and thus are not hostage to external events. The point of power is within each of us, and in the Now. This simply put of course (as it is not our topic today) is empowered being or what is more esoterically called: claiming your creator hood!

Now you may wonder what this has to do with the world of tarot, but it truly is its starting point. With this empowering principle of co-creator hood in mind, we may indeed use the cards optimally! As they were designed to be used! To tap into added fields of information! And just as any significant external input on a situation helps us determine it better, may we with this extra input about self and our energy signatures, use it as guidance to better deal with the situation we went to the ‘cards’ for. This is the clairvoyance (clear seeing) the cards offer! This is how they point to probabilities, by tapping into the source (your feelings, thoughts and inner frequencies) before it has materialized into the denser people, events and things of your life!

Interestingly, the 78 cards of the tarot are called the major and minor ‘Arcana’ – which means “profound secrets & knowledge underlying the human experience.” Each card pertains to a universal archetype experience or quality, ranging from major to minor themes, stages, occurrences, feelings that all humans go through. If you further view the cards as multi layered and case specific symbols it will help you glimpse how the cards together, may comprise of the entire gamut of the human experience and its inherently subtle nuances, thereby holding or vibrating at frequencies matching most, if not all humanities problems, and situations!

And here, steps in, quantum physics again! One of its most basic principles about how energy functions is called, in simple terms, ‘like attracts like’! Energies of similar frequencies are attracted to each other! Thus do your questions- your feelings and thoughts and your situations resonate to these cards which are then ‘coincidentally’ drawn in your reading!

This is the tarots forte – it has been specially designed to help you view the sum energy of your thoughts, feelings, desires, fears and intent in the Now and what you are thus creating for self around you. To view what you may call the causes within your subconscious mind and its effects in your life! The cards are only one more tool to help you see the larger picture, tap into the deeper aspects that you have been unable to do through the usual processes of observation and deduction. A tool by its very definition implies (if properly used) an empowering aid and so must the cards be used – to facilitate ‘clear seeing’! And authentic clear seeing does not encourage you to give your power away to the cards, the reader, or a pre-determined future but to bring you back to a more aware and thus strengthened self.

This is a glimpse only, into how tarot rests on universal laws accepted both by science and metaphysics. Quantum physics further suggests the existence of many possible futures for each moment of our lives. Each future lies in a state of rest until it is awakened by choices made in the present. And Tarot optimally used always brings you back to this ‘choice point’ in the ‘present’!

P.S: We use the words pre-determined, predestined, precognitive, pre-ordained very loosely- and yet each is subtly different. Very briefly:

-Predestined is “what I have planned for my self in any given life” –

-Predetermined is “ what I have set into motion by my current choices”

-Precognitive is only the above-explained clear seeing, not ‘mystically’’ as much as through “knowing thyself”!

-Pre-ordained is what I as the One I have set into movement towards Being!

Peeling The Cosmic Onion – The Beauty Of Bliss


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

All these years we have been bridging the seeming separation and ignorance of self from Self/ Consciousness/ All That Is (call it what you may). When there is no separation… I am All That Is. When there is no ignorance I Am All That Is! Thus as we have increasingly been bridging the seeming ignorance and separation… we are increasingly becoming one with All That Is! Or as we have been decreasing the sense of ignorance and separation …we are increasingly becoming one with All That Is!

Yet…in the now…we come to another step along this journey to Self… and that is moving away from personal identity/individuated self/ ego self/ the Divyaa (put your name here) self! It’s a big one…the hooks we hang our hats on…and a leap compared to all that has been done so far!

(Yes we have done it meditatively a couple of years ago…the meditation on dissolving the hooks we hang our identity hats on…but on retrospect I understand that …that was seeding it into us as a preparation for us to now wholly embrace it… we still had the bridging of separation and ignorance…yet it was seeded unto us to be ripe for the time we could each take this leap! So yes this is what’s ‘happening’ to the divyaa self in the Now…I don’t meditate anymore… but this is what happens in those split seconds of meditation that happen spontaneously…and as whatever transpires in these group meditations is personal sharing…whatever ‘divyaa’ goes through  we as a group are going  through... )

INTRO TO THE MEDIT:

Close your eyes… relax…( let the words already spoken be the fertile soil for the seeds of this meditation to take root in… don’t seek to understand…just allow the energies encased in the words to fill you …to flower whenever is right for you…). Come sense …this ‘energy’ that we are sitting in… this… that is so profound…we have no word to describe it… is That Being ness… or That Consciousness… in which…(or more accurately- as which) we will abide when we are beyond the individuated personalized ego self. Yes some of us visit this Beingness time to time, some are more established in it, some are at the beginning of this journey…some in the middle… none of us are wholly abiding in/as as That… yet know…that what is being done through these ‘meditation sessions’… is a subconscious…energetic… loosening of the individuated ego selves …and will be ‘stored’ for in your energy field… for when  Consciousness requires the leap to be taken through a ‘you’…

Come to that ‘space’that you reside with us when we gather here every Tuesday…all of you already know that this is not a physical place you visit…it is that realm… that frequency… where you meet abide as Self. Today…This…energy…sacredness… consciousness… This being ness which you are experiencing…is beyond the separated ignorant self… beyond the ego self; there is no way to say this in words…because there is no ‘you’ to ‘experience’ it…so go beyond the words….

MEDIT BEGINS-

Come beloveds see the air filled with what you will call the waves of a television or a radio… (all of you are aware that what you see on your television screen are actually waves and frequencies …)so see the air where you are sitting filled with these waves…frequencies… bytes… call it what you like…they are floating around.

And now become aware of an antenna or a radar…( or whatever you call it) and you will observe that the moment there is an antenna or a radar, it picks up these frequencies & waves, and beams them onto a television screen. We will repeat the imagery: the television frequencies, waves, bytes were already in the air… of all the programs indeed of every program being aired. And then you observe an antenna or radar…and observe that it is this antenna that picks up these waves… picks up these bytes… and displays them on its TV screen.

Now… observe this antenna dissolve… it is dissolving… see it is not there anymore… and become aware what happens? The frequencies, waves, bytes… are all over the place as they were before… with no antenna to pick them up…they are just all there in space…in the air!

Now we will take you deeper… the same place/space you are in is filled not with tv/radio waves/bytes but with a stream of consciousness…what you call the cosmic play…everything that has ever happened… or happening …existence itself… beingness…consciousness foray unto Self…every experience… every event… every thought… every idea…every nuance….all that is… is swirling around in this beautiful space …

And ‘you’ the personal identity is that antenna!  Yes, become aware… of sitting there and you the personal self as the antenna! As you do this (see yourself as the antenna…) you become aware that ‘you’ are picking up from that cosmic play… whatever frequency ‘you’ are vibrating at! And therefore from that vastness of the cosmic play, from that infinite stream of consciousness/beingnesss – you, the personal you, the identity you (which we are showing you in the symbolic image of an antenna) is picking up from that multitude – a certain range… based on your frequency…what your personal energy field vibrates at/as!! And that is becoming like the TV screen… you life events and experiences…your life stories..! Become aware of what we are seeding unto you… the awareness that only when there is a ‘you’… a personal individuated identity…does it pick up from the cosmic play/cosmic impulses/ stream of consciousness! And this is what are called ‘your thoughts’ and thus what becomes ‘your life experiences and events’….

And now, be in heightened awareness and watch ‘you’ the personal identity dissolve… the symbolic image of you as an antenna dissolve!  See that…and thus become aware as there is no you/ no antenna… once again only the stream of consciousness is present…only the cosmic play…only the cosmic play…only the cosmic play… beingness …beingness… beingness… we are seeding your sub conscious with this most abstract understanding. Just like it requires an antenna to pick up radio or TV waves…it requires a you…a personal identity… to attract bits of the cosmic play…the cosmic impulses…beingness…consciousness being/exploring itself!  When there is no you…there are no your thoughts…no your life events…there is only the cosmic play… and you automatically are witness!

Repeat the symbolic imagery to energetically work in you….view all the television programs, stories, songs, every byte swirling around; as an antenna pops up in that space…it attracts to it from that multitude… whatever that antenna’s frequency is… and downplays it on the television set. When the antenna dissolves, there are only all those bytes again, belonging to no one… no particular  program … thus no TV on which they can come! Replace that with step 2: the air is now filled with the cosmic play- everything that has ever happened or will happen from the so called beginning to the so called end is swirling around- belonging to no one- nobody’s thoughts… nobody’s life…nobody’s story… just cosmic impulses….the cosmic play. But as you reappear…even as you see yourself…you are the antenna…you attract to it  those parts that your frequency attracts…they become your thoughts…they become your life story. As you dissolve…no you…no your thoughts…no your life stories or experiences…only the cosmic play. Sit in this for a few moments… be beyond the words….do not try and analyze or understand…experience no-self …the expansion… the freedom…the lightness… beautiful…(not descriptions but pointers only as there are no words to go there! Even no-self becomes a label –it gives form to the formless and a description the descirptionless so go beyond the word… )

Now beloveds come back to that space and come back to yourself as an antenna… and become aware that it is your frequency that attracts to it the bytes from the cosmic play! So as you raise your frequency… as you bridge the separation…as you bridge the ignorance…your frequency rises … and as your frequency rises… you pick up from the cosmic play…its higher…finer…more beautiful experiences and thoughts. And yet, like any antenna, you vibrate to a range of frequencies, from your highest to your lowest…and therefore your lowest energies…your lowest frequencies pick up from the cosmic play the denser thoughts… the worries…the more troublesome experiences… the more limited experiences and life events. This will answer some of you- why when you abide in a higher & finer frequency-when your thoughts are usually the higher finer ones- why are there moments of denser thoughts and experiences! Because beloveds… each of you have a range…and thus a lower end too! Your higher frequency attracts to you the higher finer thoughts… and the lower frequency attracts to you the lower thoughts…

And this is the trick: so simple beloveds – keep raising your frequency – because as your frequency rises…your lowest frequency is becoming higher and finer… and higher and finer…and higher and finer…!! More so like an antenna has its usually set setting…you have a setting where you abide in most of the time…lets call it your centre of attention... and this centre of attention is what attracts to you the multitude of your thoughts and experiences! And therefore beloveds… so simple…so simple…all you have to do is raise the centre of your attention…so that the higher becomes higher &finer… and the lower becomes higher and finer…and the centre keeps raising and thus do you attract like wise from the cosmic play….and abide in higher finer thoughts and experiences!

Repeat this visually now…see yourself as this beautiful long thermometer if you like. See your centre of attention …wherever it shows up…this frequency attracts to it from that cosmic play…from all its experiences…what become your thoughts…! The lower frequencies attract the lower ones…the higher ones the higher ones…and all you all are doing through these sessions… through your lives…as you bridge the separation…as you bridge the ignorance… you are raising your centre of attention…and as you abide in higher and finer frequencies you attract from the cosmic play those higher and finer thoughts and feelings and ideas and experiences…what you call love… and abundance…and joyfulness.

Now see your thermometers…see where your centre is…and raise it…slightly up…and a little more up…and in today’s session a little more up… and higher…and higher… till you are at the tip of that thermometer...so even your lowest frequency is at the very top. This is what happens to you all in meditation…and that is why you feel so good…!

And if your lowest frequencies are at the very top…your highest frequency has gone beyond the thermometer… beyond the antenna  of self… beyond personal self… individuated self… beyond  ego self… and now like we did with you in your last session… take the leap…jump off the tip of that thermometer…jump off the tip that antenna…so that you jump off completely from personal identity… from individuation’s… from your ego self…you may land on a cloud…because initially you need something to identify with…so I am the cloud…but even the cloud dissolves…I am the sky… but even the sky dissolves…I am Ether…even Ether dissolves…I am consciousness…even that dissolves…there is no I am…there is just isness…no identity…no self…nothing to attract anything… you are part of the cosmic play…events are happening… but there is no doer thereof. Stay in this for a few moments…call it is ness if you like…call it the cosmic play if you like …no identity whatsoever…not even I am…then go beyond the need to call it something…go beyond the words….

Allow this to seed unto you. No self…no individuation…nothing to attract a portion of the cosmic play…nothing on which the cosmic play can attach itself to.  Yes… beloveds… when there is no self there is nothing on which the cosmic play can attach itself to…and in this ‘you’ are the cosmic play…events are happening but there is no doer thereof. (Alas .. even though ‘you’ are now the cosmic play and not you ….we have to use the word ‘you’ in speaking). Stay in this for a few moments.

Now let’s go deeper: (You) as the cosmic play…look down… and be aware that all the antennas are still there…! It is ‘you’ who has detached  from the antenna that you are…you that has detached from the personal individuation… and therefore the current self is still there… the divyaa self  (put your own name) is still there….but its not ‘you’(or where your consciousness resides) … ‘you’ are the cosmic play…! Become aware of all the antennas: the Hamsi…and the Anju…and the Divyaa…etc etc are all there…and therefore the Divyaa and the Anju and the Hamsi… continue their life stories…their vibrations continue to attract to them requisite thoughts and experiences …! Yes, ‘they’ are raising their frequencies, but ‘you’ as the cosmic play have nothing to do with any of them/that… indeed as the cosmic play your identification with the Divyaa self (put your own name here) or ‘others’- with the Hamsi self or Shaila self or Heena self is one and the same- you are not more attached/identified with the divyaa self than the other selves!

Let’s go deeper: (You) as the cosmic play…are looking down… and see all these selves/ identities like those wound-up toys children have… and each one is playing itself out like any winding toy does when its winding/charge goes out! Each ones winding is being played out….what you all call their ‘karma’ is the analogical charge/winding that is playing out. So yes they …the divyaa self (put your own name here) and other selves are living their lives… raising their frequencies…and the winding is playing out and like a wound up toy they are moving around…some have just being wound up and are in full steam…in some the charge is running out!  But remember…all of them…all those humans /personal entities/ antennas/wound up toys…are one and the same you as the cosmic play… you don’t identify with yourself anymore than you do with the others…they are all wound up toys of the cosmic play ... and as each ones charge finished only then will they subside.!

Lets go deeper: this is important but we have no words to say this …so we say it in words that do not do it justice so go beyond the words:  While ‘you’  are the cosmic play there is no personal you- and as long as ‘you’ (though there is no you we need to use the word to speak ) abide as the cosmic play… as this awareness… as Universal Consciousness….and the non personal you – then the ‘you’… the Divyaa’s and  the Hamsi… the current selves ….are not being further wound up due to lack of life force/attention/personal identification to keep them going…and therefore their charge is diluting automatically……! Of course the moment we have spoken this…the moment all of you have got concerned that …Ahh …by being part of the cosmic play… I… the Divyaa self (put your   own name here)  am dissolving/evolving … you have attached back to personal self…! But…it cannot be done in any other way through words … so beloveds forget concerns about what is happening to your current /personal selves… whether they are dissolving/evolving.. .just abide as the cosmic play …moment to moment abide as Universal Consciousness…!

Let’s go deeper and become aware that when you are Universal Consciousness, you are its qualities… or aspects… or essence…! You are bliss…you are in the now…you are pure acceptance…you are witness…you are all those terms you read and learn about… automatically…! Lets us seed into you something of great importance: as a Universal Consciousness you are bliss -you are not joy… not love… not abundance…that is for the higher frequencies… you are even beyond that… you are bliss which is beyond the opposites of joy and not joy … beyond the idea of abundance and not abundance…beyond the ups and downs…

Don’t worry if this is abstract for some of you… just be in this energy field …in the spaces between the words…non self.. .non doer… Universal Consciousness; just relax into the energy field of beingness… the cosmic play… events and deeds but no doer thereof…! Be like a firecracker which has burst into a hundred… zillion sparks…there is no identity attached to each spark...tap into the non self ness … beyond identity ness… words like freedom… like lightness… like vastness…may come up in description…but it is beyond description…indeed at its deepest its beyond experience as there is no you to experience it.. Whatever we have emanated….spoken… has been seeded deep into your sub conscious minds…it will unravel at the right time… in the right way… whenever ‘you’ need it! Indeed you will read it here… you will come across it there… and you will say oh! I understand this so wholly somehow… !

***

ENERGY WORK:

Now we will work with you energetically...allow the essence of the non self…where there is no personal self… where there is only universal self… the cosmic play… events and experiences without identity…and allow one drop to splash on to your crown chakra…allow it to coat & permeate your pituitary gland…(this is between your third eye and where a pony tail would come out in the middle of your crown…..it is your master gland which orchestrates your beingness and  it will emanate this essence into your entire energy field as and when required.)

And as this is happening-as the pituitary gland is emanating this non self essence unto you-see a strange image: little… little… little…circles are falling out of you…almost like sticky tape patches are falling out of you: all those identities you have held from the beginning to the end…all those identities which are still there are being released…! So view literally little…little sticky patches… symbolic of the identities which had attached themselves to you…deep within you… are now falling out…being released…coming unstuck… and scattering and dissolving…all these identities which don’t serve you any longer. See this symbolic imagery …release; feel the release…know the release …little…little circles…sticky patches…falling away….feel the lightness.

Once again…focus on the pituitary gland which is emanating this essence unto your deep sub conscious …into all those pathways of your mind... detaching from you all those identities you have held from what you call the beginning of time…that you have yet not let it go of…see wires being unplugged.. synapses being undone…

Once again focus on the pituitary gland emanating this essence of the non self or universal self.. .this time a drop falls within you onto your solar plexus chakra. Ahh… helping dilute current selfs’ identities and roles…(do not worry, those which need to be maintained will be maintained…they are sacrosanct…)only which you are required to move  from are being shaken loose… diluted… or for some of you… dissolved. Circles after circles are falling away…wires after wires are being dismantled … past/ present/ future identities are being shaken loose… or removed… or dissolved. Current self…current identities…current attachments…roles are being loosened…dissolved. No self = no thoughts = no attachments…no worries…= cosmic play…bliss…! And yet remember the previous steps we have taken you through today …the current selves are still there…they will continue to do their ups and downs…to  raise their frequencies …but you are not the current self anymore …

Relax …so much work…so much work has been done that it would take you a lifetimes to do it w/o this inner work… so   come back to that beautiful space … the green grass…the fresh flowers…the rolling hills…the blue skies…see in the pool there is no image…there is no image…the pool only reflects all that is…

Once again…we will work on you all energetically…focus on your root chakra. Know that that essence from the pituitary gland has now worked its way into your root chakra…releasing from your root chakra… all those identities and attachments and roles that you don’t require…at the very physical and current level..! Release…release…release… see those circles after circles after circles releasing…see pathways/synapses at your root chakra being snapped open…all those attachments that are only there because you are there…when you are not there where can there be attachments…! All those ‘goals’ when there are no you…how can there be your goals…it is the cosmic play that will work and function through you… no you…no attachments…no goals…no attachments…no you…release from your root chakras…

Now watch that same drop from the pituitary gland drop on your second chakra…the sacral chakra…this is where you house your fears. Fears only arise when there is a you…so when there is no you … there are no fears…and therefore watch this non self essence work at your second chakra…removing all sense of you…and as there is no you…there are no fears…and as there are no fears…as there is no you…you are being filled at this most all important chakra…with pure being…with pure knowing…with fresh prana …with Universal Consciousness… with the cosmic play that you are…that is why it is known as the chakra of chi.. i

Now focus on the solar plexus chakra once again…and a big drop of that essence falls from the pituitary gland…because this is the chakra of identity… of I am ness…yes your I am ness expands…and has expanded over the years… from current self… to larger self…to soul self… to Universe…to God self… but at some point…at some point… beloveds…you are ready to go beyond all identity…even beyond I am…and it is at the root…sacral…and solar plexus chakra…mostly at the solar plexus that you move away from I… even expanded I…you move from I AM THAT to THATNESS  ..

It is these three lower chakras which keep you in personal identity…in personal consciousness… individuated self… and humanity is ready to go beyond these three chakras…beyond personal individuated self into oneness. chakras are all interconnected… not sealed off from each other… and therefore though the heart chakra is the chakra of oneness, leaks from your lower three chakras,  find themselves to your heart chakra…and therefore it is here that you feel the jealousies…and the attachments…and the loneliness… and the lack…but when you have worked on the lower three chakra’s… when there is no self to leak into your heart chakra …the chakra is the chakra of oneness…Universal Consciousness…cosmic play… what you call love…that is all love is…when there is no you and me…there is love…let that essence work on your heart chakra …

And now that splash onto your throat chakra…this is even ‘more’ (if we can use such a word…) a chakra are oneness… of unity…of no self…it is the chakra of pure expression…the pure expression of the cosmos…creation…the cosmic play…no doer  thereof.! Once again because of leaks/bleed through from your lower chakras- does your throat chakra get affected…and the comparisons come up…does your expression become limited…! Concerns of you and who you are …bleed into the throat chakra to limit its free flow expression …but when there is no you…you are one with pure expressions itself…you are one with the cosmic play… 

And now experience that drop onto your third eye…all thing ness…no thing ness…no self. once again…its only because of the bleed through that this chakra can get tampered with…otherwise this is the chakra…of no one…no thing…or all thing ness…the Universal Consciousness…no separate self…

Continuously see those symbolic sticky circles peeling away and falling out of your lower three chakras…so that when there is no you or me… the higher three chakras are coming increasingly into their true essence… love… pure expression… the cosmic play…all thingness …no thing ness …become like the fire cracker which has burst into the sky….each identity less spark is whizzing…shining…dying out…

Be the cosmic play…events are happening…deeds are happening …but there is no doer thereof…and just sit in this energy field. Of course… as long as you have a physical body…and as long as you have a role to play on physical Earth…a minute portion of a identity will be retained… but all of you are ready now to move towards the dissolving of your personal identities…to the bare minimum that you require in the now…

So see yourselves now as a dot…a micro… nano…dot…that is all that is retained of your personal identities…around that dot is the cosmic play…the cosmic play…events and deeds…  is isness…there is no even…I...AS I MEANS ANOTHER…OTHERWISE WHERE… I? YOU HAVE GONE FROM IAM… INTO AM NESS…INTO ISNESS…

And so it is…and so it is…and so it is.

No hooks to hang your hats on…

Bliss…

You may start opening your eyes…you may feel lighter…you may feel a sense of freedom… having broken through…nita it was important that you were here for this…it is a barrier you have flailed against many lifetimes…bowing has happened…but none of us are bowing…Shaila …

Peeling The Cosmic Onion – Enlightenment Happens


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kumar…

When I began my so-called spiritual journey, enlightenment was far from my mind! What I was looking for was a better life and at the most some abstract notion called peace of mind. And oh yes, most certainly a quick fix method to jump start me out of my problems! But enlightenment? That sounds an impossible concept and one usually leaves it for another life time …or for those we perceive as holier than thou!

And yet if we could only become aware, that it is our preconceived notions of the term that comes in the way, perhaps more of us might make it our reality. Enlightenment is not something for the sages, it is not an impossible dream and it does not imply a distancing of self from all that we have held dear. Life, even our very contemporary life and enlightenment are not mutually exclusive states. And this to me is true spirituality- something that includes and not excludes my day-to- day life! Something that blends with, and indeed optimizes my humanity and its purposes and desires, rather than opposing, suffocating and suppressing them! Thereby deeply fulfilled do we extend the same to ‘others’ around us and extend from self to selves to the Godself within!

Indeed one soon realizes that impossible (sounding) concepts are not really so! Unconditional love, non-judgment, forgiveness, oneness and the like might appear idealistic, impractical, impracticable indeed when read off the pages of a book, but once you are on the journey they become unexpectedly user friendly! Ask me! I used to think unconditional love was only a sop for those who had no ‘real’ personal lives of their own! And being the much touted ‘witness’ seemed to me a concept Shiva created so that no one could copy him! And yet, a few years into this wondrous path, all these qualities ‘happen’ more and more naturally. One discovers that it was largely our misconceptions, rising from a half –baked understandings of these concepts, that made them loom so large and forbidding; and the rest of the gap is easily bridged by a growing awareness that literally changes the way we think and feel. For through it all we are moving towards what en ‘light’enment is best known for! The startling eureka’s of inner illumination! In more modern and scientific terms enlightenment is a re-mapping of our neural pathways, a literal expansion of our minds and thus our consciousness! With literally new brainwaves, our perceptions begin to change, reflecting in enhanced ways of being almost automatically!

And suddenly, enlightenment is an escalating lightening of the heart, reverberating through our personal lives, environment and world. Individual journeys almost involuntarily become of spiritual service towards humanity for you are 24/ 7 transmitter of this new consciousness wherever you maybe placed in life, through whatever tasks your day –to- day life may comprise of!

And the best part! Enlightenment happens in individual ways, tailor made to you! Enlightenment does not mean becoming some impossible ideal, the Gods and Masters we revere and resonate to, for we each individuated to be what only we could be for the whole….towards enlightening the whole in unique ways! We do not lose our identity but indeed expand and revel it in ways perhaps we were not even aware of! And life becomes an Arabian night’s journey with always more to discover and enjoy! For the journey within is truly that: infinite scope for inner expansion, reflecting in external areas of life panning out more and more to our individual ideas of what they can best be! And then …there is more…! Yes there always is!

And enlightenment has happened somewhere along the way! The sacred permeates your day-to day life in minute ways – awake, asleep, playing, at rest or working. It is not one magical moment as we sometimes think it to be…but a series of…and it’s conscious realization permeates us in a manner quite like the beautiful music that has been playing all along in our neighbors house…but we only become consciously aware of it at some seemingly sudden ‘point’!

Peeling The Cosmic Oninion – In the Now


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

Many of us think of our ‘purpose to be’ in terms of that one over riding theme; but at its deepest – each truth that becomes yours , beyond its mere intellectual understanding, is your purpose to be! And whatever truth you are experiencing in the now, is your current purpose!

So many ask me to help them know what their ‘life purpose’ is; and my answer to them is : ” Your life purpose is whatever is happening in your life Now; whatever makes up your Now- your current desires or fears are your purpose to be! Whoever (relationships or lack of ) and whatever ( events, situations) is part of your Now, is your purpose to be! It is so simple and yet we seek some deeper answer; we seek some seemingly grander purpose! And yet, the Now is our only true purpose…and as we fulfill the reason for whatever is in our now, it becomes the step for the next ‘purpose’ to appear!

So yes your current fears are your current purpose too- for it is what you in this Now have chosen to dis-empower and move away from. whatever is the root that you have chosen to move away from -rises as fear- so that you then need to tackle it! And as you do, the fear subsides, the purpose for it to show itself being accomplished! Your desires are the whisperings of your soul to move towards what you as soul have chosen to experience…or at a deeper level what the Whole chooses to experience through ‘you’! Desires work as your ‘purpose to be’ in many ways: in the fulfillment of your desire, the desire was for that experience and that completion at soul levels and as the purpose gets accomplished the desire starts to fall away; sometimes however you don’t get what you desire, but the desire was only the carrot for whatever you learnt or experienced in trying to fulfill it! That (experience) was the true purpose of that desire! In the same way whatever relationships and areas of life make up your Now -are your current purpose to be- towards some completion perhaps; towards some learning perhaps; towards some experience that you require at soul levels! When the purpose gets accomplished then you find those relationships or areas of life being weaned from you!

Indeed, your purpose to be- what you call your life purpose is two pronged- what ‘you’ or your soul -through this life experience- have chosen to learn; and what you have chosen to contribute. Both are part of this ‘life purpose’ though many think ‘life purpose’ is only about your contribution … what you can do for others and the world! But an important part of your life purpose is the learning- enhancing your strengths, moving away from certain weaknesses and in this expansion, allowing soul growth, and contribution to the Whole.

So what is your purpose to be? Look into all that makes up your Now!

Peeling the Cosmic Onion – The Mirror Effect


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

What does the grandiose sounding concept of self-empowerment really mean? Like all universal truths, it can be understood at many levels, and peeled endlessly like a cosmic onion! To start with, self-empowerment is usually linked with a claiming of your Creatorhood- a state of being wherein you realize that you shape your reality, moment-to-moment, through your recurring thoughts and feelings. At deeper levels we understand that this power of manifestation is only it’s by-product, much like producing alcohol while manufacturing sugar!

True self-empowerment thus lays deeper, in the acknowledgment that your life plans, what you perhaps call karma or destiny, are willfully chosen by you for your highest good and growth. Towards certain experiences or learning, towards expansion of self and disempowerment of the limiting aspects within that self. No matter how challenging these may appear, it is indeed by your true free will that you choose your so-called destiny! However at its deepest level, complete self-empowerment means complete self-responsibility! Where you comprehend that everything outside of you, which you view as your life or world is but a reflection of the inner you; there is nothing in your exterior without it being in your interior; you are the cause and the outer is only its effect!

Thus true self-empowerment leads to the profound understanding that there is no other! There is no one other than you! And yes, most certainly this eureka has many ramifications in your day-to-day life! At first you go through a certain sense of consternation because there is no one to blame- no person, event or thing, nor fate, nor God that you can hold responsible for your life events, because everything comes back full circle to you. But it soon dawns on you that if you are wholly responsible for creating your life then you are completely empowered to enhance it too. You are not hostage to situations, people, and things outside your self; the point of power is within you and in the now! Blame, judgment, non-forgiveness, fluctuations between feeling the aggressor or victim all start to recede rapidly as you begin to view self as the source of everything outside you. You even understand what Christ meant when he said ‘the meek shall inherit the earth’ because with true self-empowerment there is no need for the false power of controlling the ‘outside’!

Which brings us to another layer of that cosmic onion and the realization that Self Empowerment is claiming you creator hood yes, but at tripartite levels- your personal realties (relationships, careers) the environment (country, political, educational systems) and your world! Thus to change, enhance or even understand any thing in your life, be it difficult mother in laws, betraying society, unclean politics or world terrorism, it is within you that you must look! Mahatma Gandhi’s words: “Be the change you want to see in the world” come alive in this context and are to be taken literally!

It is the single most effective way to change the world! A line of reasoning that works best in any such self endeavor is what we have coined as “Why why why till you reach the I”, which makes you look within as the source or cause of the effect outside! This also becomes a 24/7 meditation, because you are constantly brought back within, to self, and to the creator that you are!

The concept of Mirrors is a beautiful visual analogy towards the above understanding, and asks you to view your life and world as your reflection in the mirror! If you are joyous and loving it will reflect back; if you are filled with doubt and anger it is what you will meet in the mirror! And just like you cannot manipulate the relfection in the mirror, you cannot change your world from the outside. This helps you reinforce that all patterns and recurring situations need to be addressed within; otherwise the future is only a mishmash of the past, which you present to self in different ways so that you may handle the cause within.

At this point you may well be wondering how exactly do you manifest the people, events, things (or lack thereof) in your day-to-day life? You may even wonder where is this creator within you? And the answer of course is that the creator within you is in your belief system, because it is through your recurring thoughts and feelings and focus that you manifest physical life! You live in what is called a vibrational universe and everything you see (stone, plant, animal, human) and don’t see (space, thoughts, feelings) is energy vibrating at different frequencies. Thus visualize that the field of pure energy surrounding you is your raw material with your beliefs impinging on it moment to moment; and as critical mass is reached these beliefs become the physical tangibles you call your life or world! Energy is completely neutral and does not judge between positive or negative attention, and thus you create your limiting (doubts and lack) and positive beliefs.

With this understanding you can wholly claim your creator hood, and choose to think in ways that you wish to see outside you! Expand your beliefs and you will enhance your day-to-day life! How? Start by Knowing Thyself, what energy signatures do you emit moment-to-moment? Have you taken responsibility for your life and world? If you still blame the outside it is what you will further create. Know that you create moment-to-moment through your feelings, at tripartite levels, and thus there is no one other than you! Your life and world is your mirror.

Peeling the Cosmic Onion – The Medium of Meditation


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kumaar…

Guided meditation works in many ways. I have spoken about it before, so a small reiteration… that through a guided meditation we are actually able to experience or become more experientially aware about intellectual truths and mental concepts. It works very much like seeing a movie. A lot of people who saw the movies The Secret or What the Bleep Do We Know were suddenly wowed in the understanding of what they may have been hearing or reading about for many years.  When we see concepts like these visually as in a movie  they somehow click, and we understand them at a much deeper level.

This is really what a guided meditation helps us to do, because we see it like a movie within us, and even more important we are taking part in the movie. the result is, at very deep subconscious levels our participation drives home our understanding more than intellectual truth. Also, once we close our eyes, our focus turns inwards. There is no outer activity for the mind to focus on and this helps us come into a alpha state of consciousness which and aids experience, rather than intellectual understanding.

What I’ve been doing with friends and students is holding groups, where I take them through guided medications on intellectual concepts. What we are really doing is using words to go beyond words, because words are only finite means of expression – and the finite cannot touch the infinite. So through guided medications we do use words, but only to touch the essence beyond words and each gets their own inner Eureka’s somewhere down the line as a result.

All of us have a lot of information, a lot of knowledge, a lot of gyan, but through guided meditation these universal truths resonate with our energy fields. Our truths must resonate, both internally and externally, and, in the end, that is really what wisdom means. Wisdom is not intellectual understanding; it’s when our energy fields are resonating with what we are hearing, each and every day.

Guided medications are also a beautiful way of raising our energies or maintaining already heightened energies. And this is simply because energy follows thought. What we are doing during meditation is developing a very clear, honed, and willful focus on our deeper aspects, our higher aspects – on our divinity.

Our very focus and awareness of these deeper aspects brings to life the the individual and unique Self within each of us. Awareness and focus are in and of themselves life forces, and we experience that which we know through words. If our energy fields are ‘raised’, we in fact follow the standard laws of energy. If we are vibrating at a higher and finer tune of frequency,  we are attracting the same, and more importantly, our energy fields and stronger to resist anything to the opposite. They resist the lower fields such as anger, judgment, or sorrow and does so automatically. They are in a state of resistance to anything but the joy of self!

Think of a camel that can traverse the desert more easily due to his store of water within him. Through regular meditation, we are actually creating and storing this strong and vital field of energy within us so we can traverse our days without it dissipating via the ups and downs of daily life. And why? Because we have a tank full of joy and blissful Self!

It is important to note that we don’t need to complete `meditation’ as a formal process. I can just connect instantly to my higher self, my deeper self, my Godself – whatever words you want to choose – but this is as quickly dissipated through the very next problem or stress that arises. Through mediation (guided or otherwise) we have to be in the right frame of mind, the right ‘space’ of our higher divine self for a longer period of time so our finer vibrations are actually filtering through our spiritual bodies our mental bodies, emotional bodies, physical bodies, cells, molecules… through all that ‘time’… They are actually going deeply into spiritual sub-conscious and activating the unconscious mind in the process. When the unconscious becomes conscious, we experience what is called supra-consciousness. This is why meditation makes us feel in as though we are in a heightened state of being. Raised energies are akin to moving from beta to alpha, theta, delta and even gamma states of being.

It will be different for each one of us, but through regular practice we all can touch our higher frequencies and train our bodies so to more easily access them, with less and less effort. Much like working out to first develop our muscles, we then continue to maintain them.  So, work out your mind today!

Peeling The Cosmic Onion – Mind Expansion


Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

From India Corespondent Divyaa Kummar…

Discourses, books, workshops and mind expanding material is all around us these days and yet most of us are unaware why mind expansion really helps, what it truly does within us, or how indeed it translates so effortlessly to enhanced living. Most think of mind expansion in its abstract connotation, but I want to show you how it is about literally stretching the mind.

Firstly, let’s understand that the mind is not the brain. The brain is only the physical counterpart, the apparatus through which the mind interacts with the body – an interface if you like. Electricity (the mind) comes into the bulbs (of your body) through the circuitry board called your brain. We think of the mind being ‘up there’ in the brain because this is where this interaction takes place. In fact the mind is not physical at all. It is pure energy vibrating at the different frequencies commonly known as brain waves of your many thoughts, feelings and beliefs. We all have thoughts of different frequencies through our day and they make up what we call the lower mind, higher mind, intellect etc. Thus your mind is actually your energy field. More importantly, as ‘energy,’ the mind is not a segregated fixed section delineated from the rest of your energy field, and is contained in or operates through your body. Your mind is in your toes, in every organ, every cell, and every particulate. And indeed as energy permeates all that is, your mind is not limited to your physical body but extends forth infinitely.

And as you expand your ‘mind’, what you are really doing is expanding your energy field; literally extending it to blend with higher and finer energies, all the way to Universal Consciousness itself, the one mind – God if you choose. And as these purer energies become part of your personal energy field, the frequency of your thoughts feelings and beliefs, you increasingly find yourself in sync with the love, wisdom, power and abundance immanent in universal consciousness!

Imagine operating from a universal mind. Beyond duality- love is a state of being, not something to be found. In its oneness, blame, judgment and the like become naturally redundant. In its empowerment, you claim your creatorhood more and more naturally. And thus there is an ‘automatic’ growth through something some refer to as gyan yoga, the path of mind expansion. For as you expand within and operate from your higher potentials, they reflect likewise in the enhanced outer realty that you call your life and its people, events and things!

Indeed mind expansion is not merely a cerebral path as often thought, but automatically encompasses love and bhakti well within its purview. One always thinks of the heart as separate from the mind, but if the mind is contained in or operates through the body, then your heart is also part of your mind. Thus mind expansion implies expansion at the heart centre too. And just as the brain is merely the physical counterpart of where the larger mind (vaster energy fields) meets the body, the corporeal heart is the physical counterpart of where pure consciousness meets your personal energy fields. Thus mind expansion, over time, implies merging our personal energy fields into pure consciousness in what can only be described as Love.

This understanding was a big eureka for me. I understood for the first time why mind expansion leads to an automatic ‘change’ in heart. It is why one automatically becomes more compassionate, accepting and non-judging; why one automatically begins to feel centered, joyous and at peace; why one indeed increasingly moves into finer and purer ways of being. True mind expansion is not devoid of love, in all its nuances – for self, others, and the divine – and it happens automatically through the process. More importantly, the heart centre is part of what we call the subconscious mind because though we are aware of our feelings therein, we remain mostly unaware of the host of thoughts that give rise to these very feelings. There can however be no feeling without the critical mass of beliefs that give rise to them, but as these are unobserved, they become part of the subconscious mind. And this expansion of the subconscious mind becomes vital, as it is a moment-to-moment energy signature that we are unknowingly emitting and thus drawing towards us as our reality and its relationships and events.

And there is more, for mind expansion goes even deeper! For having understood that our mind is our energy field, we will better understand that your chakras are also part of what we call our mind. Indeed just like the brain and heart are physical counterparts of where our minds meet our bodies, the chakras are an etheric interface. Each chakra is related to a certain frequency, a certain range of ‘thoughts’. Describing what each chakra symbolizes is out of the scope of this article, but if you know what each chakra stands for, you will understand thoughts that correspond to each chakra are thought from that part of our minds. For example when you think about material security it’s through your root chakra, if you are thinking about your power issues it is from the solar plexus. And thus, what is interesting in reference to this article is that with mind expansion, you are cleansing, balancing and expanding your chakric system and doing so without any direct energy manipulation – (mediations pranayam or Kriya).

Indeed with mind expansion our centre of operation moves to higher (and higher) chakra’s and what is really happening is an automatic movement from (ego) personal separation based consciousness, to I AM universal consciousness. You are indeed removing the veils and merging back with the source.

Thus is mind expansion not some abstract endeavor and it helps in practical ways. We can become more loving and compassionate and does a 24/7 spiritual service. As we vibrate at a higher frequency than critical mass human consciousness- we are like a radio station emanating those frequencies from wherever we are – be at work or play or sleep. We become a ‘light worker’ automatically!

And for those of us who sometimes wonder where does all this growth and expansion lead? Where does it all ‘end’? May you now understand that there is no ‘end.’ Universal Consciousness is a kinetic dynamic state of being – ever expanding – and thus there is infinite scope for our energy fields to extend; for our beliefs, thoughts, and feelings to evolve and thus for us to create better and better realities, ad infinitum, ‘outside’ us. In our personal lives yes, and in the world at large, but even more, as we continue to expand our energy fields do we get a larger and larger canvas in which to create advanced realities till we indeed become creators each, of a unique universe itself.

Peeling the Cosmic Onion – Tilting the Balance

energyEverything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics”  –  Albert Einstein

Are you aware that we live in a vibrational universe? That everything we see (and don’t) is energy vibrating at different frequencies?  Whether it’s an immovable rock, a pet cat, our best friend or our designer purse – it’s all energy. Plus, all the fresh air we go out into the hills to find – this is all is energy!  And if we could don those glasses that quantum physics views the world through, we would see everything as the atoms and molecules they are! Not a difference amongst them!

Wait… there is one tiny difference. All that we see – the physical characteristics of people, events and things in our lives – is energy shaped and molded by our thoughts and feelings and they become our beliefs.  And that seemingly empty space stretching out in between is the same energy, but as yet not imprinted by you. And thus raw material is everywhere awaiting our instructions through our thinking!

Come, conjure this vast field of energy around you, your moment-to-moment thoughts and feelings pinging against it,  and view how – as they hit critical mass –  your raw material is shaped into the material manifestations of exactly what they have fashioned. This makes us the boss, with all the energy that surrounds us at our command! And like any good boss, if we understand our resources, we may indeed turn out a better final product – our lives!

Energy functions according to certain universal laws and a master key is the principle – like attracts like.

Conjure yourself like a dish antenna, drawing your way whatever channel you have tuned your thoughts to. So if you are feeling joyful and loving, that’s what will play out on the outer screen of life. If you are constantly tuned into the channels of anger and hate, that’s what what you will indeed invite!

Energy (unlike our court rooms) is impartial and immediate. Goals, desires, aspirations and fears are thus matched with equal aplomb. If we wish to change the movie of our lives, switch the channel, focus on positive feel-good factors, and tip the balance of your day-to-day thinking. That’s all we need to do to start with – tip the balance from a lacking consciousness and its negative attention (I don’t have this, that doesn’t work, he is so mean, life is so unfair) to abundant consciousness and its positive attention. And as the gladdening tangible results play out into our lives, we will create more and more to feel positive about.

One quick way to keep our scales tipped in the right direction is to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Thankfulness has great drawing power due to its heartfelt energy signature – indeed enough to send a spacecraft to the moon! Close your eyes for a moment and think about someone or something you love, and feel your energy fields surge. Next, think about something or someone you are thankful to have in your life – and view the more expansive surge!

If we make a habit of placing our focus on all that we feel good about – what works rather than what doesn’t, what you have instead of what you don’t – we can use all this free power without the exorbitant costs of our electricity bills! Consistently appreciate the smaller and larger gifts of life – the beauty a flower brings into our day, the sanctuary our home gives us, our health, the care of those around us and more.

In situations that bring about a depleting, “Oh my! What a large petrol bill,” zero in on something constructive instead. Perhaps the joy of mobility at your disposal? In place of bemoaning an uncooperative boss, observe thankfully where the positive does exist in your life. Perhaps in cooperative friends? Tilt the balance within you and view an enhanced outer life. Set into motion a chain of moments to be increasingly thankful about. Try it – it’s a lot easier than you think.

Introspective exercise for today: Write a list of all there is to appreciate in your life. Feel thankfulness fill you up as you write or read it – do not make it a purely mental exercise! Tap into this a few times a day – especially first thing in the morning and as your last thought before sleeping. You may also observe your fret list! Which is longer? What are you shaping energy into? Where does the balance tilt? In the end, make sure to tip the scales in the right direction!
