Debugging Anger - the root cause

Reactions: 
If you are angry then its due to lie.
If you are angry then its on unreal.
If you are stuck then its due to lie.

In comparison you get stuck.
In competition you get stuck. 
In wanting more you are stuck.

When you are stuck and not able to unstuck then you are angry. 
If you are angry then its due to a lie. 

If you are angry at something or someone then its unreal. 

Your stomach pit is wrenching tight, you get mad at yourself “all these years of sadhana and spiritual practices seems to have failed.”. Then your tightness is a lie, your sadhana is a lie, your spiritual practice is a lie.

Why waste rest of your life trying to fight a lie?
What will you get if you win over a lie?
What is the point of spending so much energy against a lie? 
What will you prove in the end?
That it was a lie.
All along you have known its a lie and still you are spending time proving its a lie. 

This world is full of lies. What is the point of looking with focus on the lies?

Where else can you spend your energies? Is there something real? Is there something you feel responsible for? Is there something you care? 

You can either misuse knowledge of lies and become lazy and lethargic and go down the lane or you can take the lies head on, realize lies potency to disrupt life and move on, upwards. 

I dont know where up goes but it seems like an intelligent choice.

That upwards journey is driven by faith. 
You don’t know the path.
You don’t know the destination. 
You just know that you have a support system there built by your master, your guru. You only have that guru tatva to hold on to, depend, trust. 

I dont know why or how that faith needs to be built. But then it seems to help.

Maybe it will help in riding the uncertainties of the world. 
Maybe it will help to understand that the world is a lie.
Events and people will not stuck you. 
Maybe it will allow the free flow of intuition.
Maybe it will help you connect to the source.
(don’t ask me what source is, it sounds like a nice goal to have).

There is an infinite space that we don’t know.
The possibilities are more in believing in the unknown.
 
It’s worth spending your time and energy in knowing some aspects of the unknowable.

Don’t you think so?

Truth about the lies that cause anger

Reactions: 
What is the root cause of anger?
If someone lies then we get angry with them.
If something was promised and not delivered we get angry.
If we wanted something and it did not get fulfilled then we get angry.

But if everything is lie then
where is
competition,
comparison,
complex (inferior/superior)

?

Can you pause for a while and reflect on the lies for a while?
What do you get?
Some
freedom,
sense of relief.

This knowledge can lead to being
careful or careless,
responsible or irresponsible.

I am dhaval, yet I am not
I am married, yet I am not
I am father, yet I am not
I am son, yet I am not

This world has some aspects which are real and some which are lies.

Yet this world is lies, and everyone here is bundle of lies.

This mind is full of lies, so many times the thoughts have betrayed us, yet we keep relying on it.

Love is the biggest lie.
Daily spiritual practices are lie.
Every thought born in mind is lie.
Every word spoken is a lie.
Even Gurudev is a lie.
Each of our question is a lie.
Each of his answer is a lie.
I am lie.

How do lies help in leading a truthful, fulfilling life?
If this knowledge is handled with care then it can take you to the realm from which Gurudev takes over.
A space where only faith can help you float once plunged.
A stroll in unknown can only be guided by someone who has been there.

You will exhaust if you get stuck in lies.
So you look inside, constructing path in unknown depths using only bricks and mortar of faith and trust.
You stabilize, become still for a while.
Then you are again in world of lies, only difference being that now you are unstuck, detached.

The ratio is 10:90 of outwards:inwards.

Yesterday Gurudev gave true insight into lies that are the root cause of our anger.
Today morning Nakul continues the thread and we found some truth about the lies that have mislead us.

Nakul ended the story that was first heard from Swami Pragyanand ji Maharaj.

A man was standing at a square. He did not know which turn to take. He saw two strangers walking towards him and then by passed him. While they neared he overheard their conversation from which he picked the direction which he wanted to take. So Guru Tatva is that principle via which an answer is found for a question which is not even asked. The man did not ask the question, yet he got the answer.

So if you think that Guru is just the physical presence then its a lie. And Gurudev was saying the truth when he said I am a lie.

The chit chat with Nakul happens again next sunday at sumeru mantap at 10 AM.
Be there.
Be blissed.

Intuition process - a journey into trust

Reactions: 
It was disbelief.
It was scary.
I was stunned.
I did not know.

Its like the time when a child is born and brought in front of you for the first time.

Nature's mystery and miracle becomes evident.

The unknowable, unseeable makes its presence felt.

The knowledge gets a new definition. A definition without basis, without effort.

A skill simply is born. Simply appears. Simply is there.

And your fundamentals break, scatter. You are let groping in dark, again searching for light.

The journey restarts. The quest re-begins.

How else can you explain how intuition process works.

A little background.
Around a year back Gurudev introduced Intuition process as an art of living program to develop the sixth sense or the intuitive abilities in children in age group 8-18.

Immediately diverse results from children at various age started coming along. Some developed music, some sports skills, some could heal and some could go past and in future and predict with impossible accuracy.

I also got a chance to witness to second such program yesterday. Now they have opened the program for age group 5-8 also.

For the age group 5-8 the first day is for 1 hour. On second day, parents are allowed to come after 30 mins. I too entered as parent and was bewildered to see what kids could do blindfolded.


The ease with which they were playing templerun blindfolded was stunning. Turning, jumping, collecting coins, all in real time. 

How will you explain a phenomenon like this?


Do we really need senses like sight to see or they only have ornamental value? They are just there so that your face has a selfie value. What is the utility for body? Is it just decorative distraction from reality?

Is acquiring knowledge beyond senses, beyond intellect, beyond memory, beyond ego? Or they are simply there for distraction?

From where does intuition comes, why is it so subtle? and why is it so accurate?

What is intuition?

What is its relationship with trust?

Sudarshan kriya as friend

Reactions: 
Sudarshan kriya is your friend. It is there with you from your first breath to the last. And in every step that you take in life. The rhythm keep changing but they always come back to original.

Kriya gives you the experience that you most care of.
Kriya takes away and washes off the experience that you least care of but which still has been coming back. It clears you of your pain.

Step by step.
Everyday.
It takes you closer to your original being.
It gives you glimpses of your true self.
Just like a true friend, in good as well as in bad time kriya is there by the side.

Every morning it prepares you for the day.
Each day it helps to recover your life, your naturalness.

It has been your friend since time immemorial, and will continue to do so beyond your memory.

It is not just a breathing technique.
The technique is only disguise.
The truth of kriya is incomprehendible, beyond reason, beyond faith.

I dont know 99% of time why kriya works. Even in remaining 1% I am not sure 99% of time why kriya works.

Scientists and Doctors have listed harmones and physiological transformations that kriya can bring, some have even claimed that it can change the DNA.

But to me it does not matter.
What matters is what is.
What I see and hear and experience is what I care about.

And that journey with kriya is in continuum...
