Bhagavan has the power to open your
heart, not with fear, but with Love. You
don't even have to believe it. It will
happen. And for the first time, you will
begin to experience life. Experience
reality as it is.
The mind colors reality with its views,
its own perceptions. We never see or
experience things as they truly are.
We're interpreting everything all the
time, evaluating, judging; as that is
the nature of the human mind. It is
impossible to understand each other. The
only way to relate is for people to
experience each other. And you can truly
experience, only if your heart is open.
Your mind cannot help you experience, as
the mind tries to understand, analyze,
always putting things into proper
"What the hell am I doing here?" What is
the purpose of my existence?
You have a self and you feel separate
from all the other people. The mind
questions and there are no answers for
all of this, the questions keep coming
on their own...
We need to fully experience each moment
Drink a glass of water, eat a banana.
Transcend the mind. This happens through
grace. Oneness Blessing opens the door
Take the opportunity and as a Oneness
Blessing Giver know that...
'I now have the power of Oneness

And the clearer my vision is, the more I
come into the cause of oneness and the
grace will so powerfully flower all

powers further. Create the right
understanding and then my vision and
role becomes clearer.
Know my path in facilitating the Golden
Age and what exactly will be my role in
This is a concrete way to help humanity.
We have the gift, power and vision to
serve people in the right way. We're
very blessed that way. We have the urge,
power and vision to create a deep impact
in human consciousness.
World over, religion is dying. This is
not a good sign for the world. The
family is dying. Relationships are
dying. Life is relationship and if
relationship is withering away, the
meaning for our existence is slowly
vanishing. The death of the
Life is losing meaning right now. That
is exactly where we can help. Oneness
Blessing is the tool.
It's important that we work as a team
and a family.
The Golden Age requires the effort of at
least 64,000 people. The power to give
Oneness Blessing has to be given to
everybody so we can share it with all
people by 2012.
This year 2012 is like a monsoon for
If we can prepare ourselves by 2012;
then man will rise to a state of
causeless Love. Every year there will be
a Oneness Blessing conference in
different parts of the world. Every year
you OBG's will receive a special Oneness
Blessing to enhance your diksha powers.
And every year more Dasas will be
present in the conference until 2012 -
when there will be 7 female and 7 male
Dasas to fully enhance our Oneness
Blessing power. Dikshas will fill people
with states of Unconditional Love and
Peace. Rising to higher and permanent
levels of these states thru the Oneness
Vision - Humanity rising to a state of
unconditional peace and unconditional
love by 2012. Thru these Oneness
Blessings you will be healing
relationships, setting right families,
helping the revival of all religions.
Fundamentalism is the last way that the
self tries to survive, when it's being
challenged by a new wave of freedom.
When it's dying and losing ground, it
tries to protect itself and will become
stronger. Fundamentalism is a dying
religion and has become a set of words,
dogma and beliefs. It no more focuses on
the need for experience.
And it is the experience that transforms
Spiritual awakening is a neurological
transformation. Our brains need to be
wired differently. There is no greater
Hell than trying to live an enlightened
life when you are not enlightened, when
you are NOT being yourself.
So Oneness Blessing is a great tool to
unite religions. When you lay your hands
on a person, he or she will feel that
Love, surrender, peace, light, whatever
the scriptures talk about.
Golden City is the first Oneness Temple.
We will build many oneness temples where
people can come and discover their own
faith, and in the oneness temple, all
can come and receive Oneness Blessings.
A major shift in human consciousness
will happen. Humanity will not be the
same anymore with the power of Oneness
Blessing and the power of this growing
movement by 2012. Our self is in
survival mode and at times we may also
have difficulty seeing this higher
vision. Mostly when we're dealing with
our own survival. Remember together we
can all create a beautiful world.
Relationships reflect: Our own
conflicts, the problems within our
family, always trying to prove the other
wrong, each trying to control and
dominate each other. The problems we
face in our country - racism, class
conflict, violence, war, terrorism,
fear, security. The problem is the
feeling of 'the me' and 'not me'
perception. As long as this feeling is
there, there is fear, insecurity,
separateness, and internal conflicts.
Fear is there.
A reason for war. Existence is the cause
of all human problems.
Did you know that you are equal to
suffering? You are the suffering. If you
are there, there is suffering.
You need to have a clear vision of what
exactly your work is. If you work with
this vision, you can work miracles. And
your Oneness Blessings will be so
The last time this happened was when
Jesus Christ was here on the planet and
he gave the power to his disciples to
also lay hands on people. At that time
the planet was not yet ready for this
Many people ask Bhagavan, why doesn't he
just give the power to everyone now and
raise the level of consciousness NOW.
Bhagavan replies that he doesn't want to
be crucified like Christ so he is doing
it at the pace that he is doing it.
A critical mass of 64,000 is required
and then we can say we are safe. You
just have no idea; it may not always be
easy. People don't like change. You can
talk of Love & Oneness and as it becomes
more and more visible, some trouble may
begin. The consciousness will continue
to grow. After the shift happens, it
will happen automatically and
consciousness will continue to grow and
evolve on its own.
People want change and a more meaningful
existence. Society fears it. Stop
comparing yourself (like getting a new
car, be satisfied with what you have).
Spiritual awakening is not the end of
Gandhi was embodiment of simplicity and
But he still loved driving his Rolls
It was a beautiful experience for him.
Have an urgent desire to help man.
Anything that helps bring about oneness,
any method at all is the right way.
Right now when we give Oneness Blessing
to others; they will have healing and
awakening experiences. It depends on
what they need, and they'll experience
that. That is how grace, God,
He or she will experience what they need
in that moment.
Faith, surrender, peace, light, deep
connection with their family, a human
being healed, an experience that is most
helpful in that moment.
In 2012, Oneness Blessing will be enough
to put a person into an irreversible
state of Love and there's no going back.
There will be more and more power and
more and more grace.
The world is a big place.
This phenomenon of Oneness Blessing and
Amma & Bhagavan...
Isn't it a miracle that we lay our hands
on another and their lives are
transformed? Incredible experiences
This is a phenomenon, not a technique.
By laying our hands we establish man's
connection to God, creating a shift in

kind of change.

are harmonizing together.

What you feel in the Oneness Blessing is

ways; especially when you are giving
If you want to experience Grace, lay
your hands on others.
When you give Oneness Blessing, you are
taken over by Grace.
As you give more Oneness Blessings,
you'll grow and your heart will open
more and more.
You must know how it is when we make an
effort to reach out to God.
When God makes an effort to reach out to
man - that is Oneness Blessing = Diksha.
You experience God in different ways.
As God, peace, love, light, healing.
You don't need more understanding then
The only way to know Amma & Bhagavan is
thru your own experience, and you will
In 1989 Diksha = Oneness Blessing began
with Krishnaji laying his hands on his
friends in the school and they started
having amazing experiences.
'Foundation for world awakening' is to
set man free. The school was founded to
prepare people for successful careers
and a beautiful life. To handle hurt,
fears, and relationship, the child
discovers what he loves to do in life.
Are the parents willing to allow the
child to be himself?
After meeting Bhagavan, things changed
for Anandagiri, as he experienced
feelings of great ease. You feel so nice
about yourself in Bhagavan's presence.
You feel like a King which is a very
different feeling. Just feeling so nice
about your-self in his presence.
In relationships, you are being judged
all the time and you can't seem to avoid
that either. The mind does that with
everything it sees, hears, and
experiences. Being evaluated does not
make us feel nice.
As you know that you are being
Bhagavan is so absolutely comfortable
with everything and everybody. Being
with him, you feel that there is nothing
wrong with the world.
Anandagiri grew up feeling so good about
himself in Bhagavan's presence. Children
were the decision makers in the school
and they also made the policies of the
school and the education system.
Bhagavan could not keep hidden what he
wanted mankind to experience anymore.
Many altered states were being
Bhagavan was committed to delivering
this state to all of man.
But Bhagavan decided that he had to slow
things down. As we share the vision with
Bhagavan, we at some point will also
experience this immense compassion Amma
& Bhagavan have for mankind.
Oneness Blessing works for everybody.
The Vision of this movement is to set
man free. Anything binding is not
Bhagavan's way. If this part is not
working for you, give it up. If it does
not work for you, it is not your path,
give it up.
This is people's work, people who have
the urge & desire to do this. More
leaders must emerge to help more people.
This movement wants everyone to have the
opportunity to serve mankind and have
their part in serving humanity.
As we help others they will express
their immense gratitude to you as their
life feels more meaningful and
purposeful. Who belongs?
Anyone working for Oneness. There is no
single path. When you come to a course
you will discover what you are seeking.
You discover your own faith and you help
others discover theirs.
You must help others to become leaders.
We want teachers everywhere.
That is what this movement needs. We
need more leaders. The power goes into
the hands of all Oneness Blessing
Bhagavan says, "It is time for more
leaders to emerge."
This is a movement of empowerment for
all Oneness Blessing givers.
We want people to be encouraging. More
and more leaders must emerge. There
cannot be a single leader.
We need to be aware that we have a self
and its wants to stand up above all
else. You can't wake up a man who
pretends to be asleep.
If you aren't enlightened, you cannot
see your own flaws, your ego; what you
need to be aware of. We are all in
process and have places to grow.
The nature of the self wants bickering.
We want to become "Somebody". You
psychologically survive in this process
of becoming. We seek from this pleasure
We can't stop it. This is the mind and
the nature of the self.
There is nothing wrong in it, and you
can know that this is what I am. You can
observe your behavior. If you think that
you are already in the highest state,
then you'll refuse to see anything. You
must not become heartless as a leader,
and always stay in awareness of what you
are doing as a leader. It has to be
The focus is on this to happen by 2012.
The helpers and dasas are helping people
and praying for them, day in and day
out. Take it all in the best spirit and
the greatest miracle is to see the truth
about yourself and that in itself is a
In 2002 Anandagiri went to a conference
in Sweden talking about enlightenment
and shared his experience of freedom.
Truth when it's not your truth still
remains untruth. He spoke of how YOU are
garbage, YOU are in pain and suffering,
YOU don't feel loved.
Encourage yourself to see the truth of
what you are, and then when the
opportunities arise; you can face them
without being afraid to look honestly at
yourself. And when you can accept that
and embrace what is ... that is freedom.
If you can feel your fear, in the moment
when you are seeing yourself as you are
and not try to hide anything about it
THAT surely is a great miracle!
You feel fear in everything that you do,
especially the fear of losing the images
that you have built over time. When you
can see yourself clearly; all the "ugly"
things about yourself and say "this is
what I am". That is the moment you are
free of all fear, and you can call that
Anandagiri can speak about it because
it's a miracle that happened to him and
he's so grateful to Amma & Bhagavan. And
with what ease Bhagavan helped him to
Transitions can be difficult. You
suddenly discover that you lose your
innocence as you move from childhood
into adulthood. The image I carried of
myself was one of how "good", generous
and what a good student I was. But
inside I could see the genuine conflict;
the inner debate. About whether I should
I speak out the truth, stay with the
image, or be with the pain? I was very
self conscious; wanting to know what
others thought of me. What I really was
feeling was jealousy and fearful. And
the fear would stop me. Should I do it?
Speak out about everything; in detail of
how I'm always comparing myself,
judging, with many lustful thoughts. If
I speak of all these ugly thoughts and
things to Bhagavan he will surely be
Well, I was the surprised one as he
He told me to -- sing - "This is what I
am _____" and sing it aloud - a
beautiful song of all my ugliness, in
And I did! I went to the largest rock on
the school campus & sang! I sang my song
and liberated myself!
Since then, (1988 - over 18 yrs ago)
I don't remember having any conflicts.
I don't complain about myself anymore.
It's a miracle, but you need grace for
Bhagavan's listening, his response, was
a Oneness Blessing...
It is a great miracle of life when you
can truly see yourself.
If you can do that, and not take things
We have a self that wants to dominate.
If you can just see that self for what
it is. And accept it naturally, without
effort. That is when you will touch God.
You will have beautiful experiences
giving Oneness Blessing.
Very soon the experience of seeing
others as you give Oneness Blessing will
be so fulfilling that you'll stop asking
What really matters most is the opening
of the heart.
Pray for the presence to take over in
What do you believe?
What do you experience?
Whatever you are feeling is perfectly
Know that the way you feel is the
You don't have to accept anything or
force yourself to accept something
that's not you.
You cannot avoid what you are feeling.
Doubt may come thru, if so, experience
the doubt. When you have doubt, allow
the space. Give the doubt space and go
there. The fact is, you don't have to
believe in anything or accept anything.
It doesn't matter to Amma & Bhagavan.
There is nothing to not accept, the
doubt does not prevent Grace from
All situations are there for us to
learn. We have a self and act from our
self and we can learn how to observe the
self in action.
It will happen. Pray for yourself to see
yourself fully 'as you are', even in all
the ugliness. You will receive the
opportunity and when the opportunity
comes, ask to be fully present with it
and experience it.
It is the Divine Intelligence flowing
thru us. We are working towards this
mission. Each one of us is very
important. We want to be connected to
all that is. This deepening has to
happen from within. What is happening
here will soon happen in every country.
There will be a Special Oneness Blessing
so that inner conflict ceases and we can
all work together in harmony.
In chanting - Irrespective of the way
you connect to the Divine, chanting
reaches the source. Each drop of rain
eventually reaches the ocean. And
spiritual enlightenment is not a part of
achievement. It's more like as if you've
suddenly seen something different.
Awakening to reality, 'As it is'.
Why do we suffer?
Our suffering, our pain, comes from our
assumptions. We never see things as they
are. Constantly processing, evaluating.
That's the habit of the human mind. It
cannot do otherwise. We suffer because
we build stories from what people tell
We create, "My interpretation of the
words that I heard."
And then we associate this moment with
those past words. We are building
stories around situations all the time.
When you can see those assumptions, that
they are responsible for your suffering.
"I have such evil thoughts, I'm going to
go to hell, and I shouldn't be having
And we waste so much energy in trying to
change these thoughts. This erratic
thinking causes pain. It is bad; I
shouldn't be having these thoughts. You
are responsible; you are the owner of
your thoughts. You have this idea, but
if you realize that your thoughts are
not your thoughts, you can then distance
yourself from your thoughts.
Your mind is your mind - an assumption.
Assumption that there is a self you have
to become free of. There is no self you
have to become free of. Self is a mere
concept. Freedom is in realizing these
assumptions. Because of the assumption
of the self and its absoluteness, we
suffer separation. We don't feel a part
of what is around us. So many people
make it a mission of their life to
change because they believe others are
responsible for their pain and
If he or she wasn't like this..... and
so they try to change the situation.
Everything is an interpretation ...in
how you perceive the situation.
We struggle so much with our own mind.
Freedom is not in transforming the
content. Freedom is in seeing the
content as it is. Seeing the mind, the
emotions, and the thoughts as they are.
Nothing changes and yet there is joy and
He is in seeing things as they are. You
don't have to do much to have this
realization. This realization will come
to you and you will see the assumptions
that rule your life and you will
experience the oneness, the
connectedness. You cannot contemplate
this until you realize it and it will
happen naturally. It only takes a moment
of grace and you will never know when
this moment will come.
Many people suffer because they love to
suffer. Suffering is more pleasurable
than facing the psychologically
suffering and the loneliness of your
existence. In today's civilization it's
important that one who successfully
manages his time asks 'why am I doing
this?' Sometimes we love doing it, and
sometimes we do it because we are bored
and lonely without it. So we have to
pass our time. We need physical activity
to distract us from our loneliness and
boredom. And we try to escape the sense
of our loneliness. So we use
psychological activity; creating goals
to keep ourselves active, but goals mean
- Successful management of our time.
You have a self, you feel separate, and
you feel lonely. So we are always trying
to manage those feelings by constantly
The fundamental problem is the self, the
me and the not me.
Isolation, separation, loneliness - this
basic pain is highly intolerable.
In assuming physical and psychological
separation, suffering is constant.
There is a constant tendency to also
create other kinds of suffering. If all
of existence is sorrow, he becomes
impervious. This is too much. So he
wants to get rid of this existence. The
psychological suffering is too much.
Especially after you have accomplished
something. After, you then feel lonely.
Once you have reached your goal, there's
nothing more for you to do and then you
feel the natural pain of existence.
When a physical problem dominates your
psychological suffering you have created
that in order to escape from the other
pain. We are so full of hurt that we can
easily manifest physical pain in our
When our tea cup is filled to top, then
adding more tea will only spill over
into the saucer.
It is the same with mind and body.
Man is psychosomatic. If mind cannot
handle the hurt anymore, it will spill
over into the body.
If we heal the mind, it will no longer
spill over into the body and we can
become free of existence as the sense of
separation; existence as the sense of
the me and the not me.
That's the cause.
In and around Golden City, India we've
adopted 100 cities and we are working
with the people to develop these
villages. If people are truly happy
because their life has meaning, feeling
fulfillment in what they do, with
education for the children, and
healthcare for all. Healing will happen
in relationships, with increased
spiritual development. We started this
project 4 years ago. Learning together
so that people can help each other. On
Sundays - there are quiz sessions. Teams
pose questions to each other from what
they have learned.
When you give Oneness Blessing, Divine
Grace knows best what that person needs
in the moment.
You don't have to understand the person
in order to heal that person. You have
the grace with you. And you have the
power of grace within you. Using Oneness
Blessing, you can perform miracles.
Initially the focus was on acquiring
profound enlightened states, when
reached, people were so happy and
couldn't ask for more, but when the
state was gone, they were so miserable.
The enlightened state was so different
than enlightenment itself. People
started coming to experience this rather
than realizing something that would be
more helpful to their lives.
Earlier they were obsessed with the
states of enlightenment rather than
realizations about their life.
They changed the courses and now it's
not about enlightenment. Once you
experience it, you crave it and
constantly looking for it rather than
actually living your life.
The greatest obstacle to enlightenment
The Oneness Blessing will take you there
and beyond to God Realization where you
become one with the divine.
The process is always changing. Oneness
Blessing itself is going to directly
give you the realization. The process
keeps changing as more grace is coming
thru. It will continually change thus
becoming simpler and happen faster.
A fundamentalist may be so stuck in his
belief that anything else might look
evil to them. Please make no attempt to
convert anyone. Oneness Blessing can
help anyone experience and discover
their faith. Not trying to bring them on
to another path.
Christ Consciousness - I have
experienced Christ and you can have that
experience. You can pray and have them
experience Oneness Blessing. They don't
have to believe anything you can also
give them a Oneness Blessing by intent.
Or just hug a person and give them a

off, running back and forth on the plane
won't make you get there any faster.
Helping others, giving Oneness Blessing
can help speed the process.

each country to the state of oneness.
Object - deepening the individual

Build a sense of community and
cooperation among teachers.
Empowering oneness teachers by providing
resources, support and training.
If we can talk to spiritual leaders in
their terms, to contact God, clergy and
lay people in the terms they don't find
offensive and give them a way to give an
experience to their people. Figure out
how to develop this for each segment.
Knowledge flows from the divine,
independently of which divine we are
The various stages of liberation:
It can happen in stages or
simultaneously and it's all the same.
Bhagavan says liberation from work is
liberation from society.
Liberation from: Conditioning
Liberation from: Knowledge
Liberation from: The mind
Liberation from: The self
Liberation of: The senses
Liberation of: Life is enlightenment
Liberation from work is:
Liberation from Society is:
Liberation from Knowledge is:
Liberation from Mind is:
Liberation from Self is:
Liberation from Senses is:
Liberation from work - This civilization
would collapse without work and would
come to a grinding halt. The coming of
the Oneness Age - causeless Love, hearts
fully open, unconditional love is when
the heart is fully open.
Some people can't imagine when the world
we think spirituality and materialism
can't go together.
Spiritual path of enlightenment, we have
the image of St. Francis Assisi, Buddha,
JC, simplicity and enunciation. Total
sacrifice, detachment, no desire. Idea
is so different than what it actually
Think of an enlightened world - no
desires, smiling faces, no anger.
Liberated, God Realized people are
simple and detached, but we aren't going
to be living in rags or starving with no
car, bare footed.
The Oneness Age does not mean we have to
be in the Stone Age.
There will be abundance and growing
technology, more comforts, a more
beautiful world. More technology,
wisdom, compassion no division in
economics, politics, does not mean
giving up work.
What it means - Action vs. activity. The
current nature of our work in society.
You need to stay alive physically and
Fear of survival to the physically and
psychologically, boredom are the major
reasons driving us to do what we are
doing. If we ask people how many love
what they are doing; how many really
enjoy what they are doing. Maybe there
are very few.
When the work that you do is a means to
our end - survival, fear loneliness,
security, such work is merely activity,
but the work that do, if it is an end in
itself, you are doing what you do and
you love what you do. It's an end in
itself because you love doing it.
Such work is Action. The very act of
walking gives you such joy.
It's such a beautiful experience. When
you are truly experiencing what you are
doing. That is action and such work is
Conversation with friend - that is
meditation, just loving the
conversation, it's a beautiful
experience. You're cleaning your house,
clearing the trash, and you are
experiencing that moment, there is total
attention and THAT is meditation,
When you have moved from activity to
we call it liberation from work.
Liberation from work is liberation from
A truly free man is also free from the
idea of freedom.
Hippies were ruled and stuck by ideal
When you are free, you are really free,
you are not positioned.
Liberation from the clutches of society.
Liberation from the fear of society. We
do what we do because we are afraid of
what others will think of us. We strive
to achieve things that we think society
will appreciate. Your heart wants one
thing, but you do something else. Your
mind will ask who will respect.
How are you going to make $, how will
you survive. Society conditions us to do
what is most appreciated. Liberation
from society is liberation from fear of
society. No more acting from fear or
Who is responsible for WWII? All of us
at that time. Man is a puppet.
All of the responses are predetermined
in the mind. We are conditioned to think
in a particular way. Social structure,
schools, politics conditioned and
programmed to thin in a particular way.
Ruled by our ideas, thoughts and
Fundamentalist - idea that Christ is the
only way rather than that there are so
many paths and people can choose their
own path and they can't see it any other
way no matter how much logic, rationale
you use, they'll see you as evil.
History - birth, death of ideas.
Battle between ideas - wars, so many
conflicts in the world.
We are ruled by ideas, we have no
freedom, even from being in the womb.
Early ideas form the blueprint of our
lives. If the blueprint says nobody
loves you, no matter how much the world
loves you and cares for you, you don't
get it. Unless you are free, you really
don't know what freedom is. You are in a
There is a story of a man not afraid of
death, and he went to a famous scholar
in India to debate his way of thought.
Even the animals could recite with him;
his parrot would recite with him. He
offered the parrot some grapes, I don't
like grapes, I love peppers says the
Finally, the parrot tries the grape -
it's so delicious, why didn't my master
give me these?
They go for a walk, more grapes - parrot
says I want freedom, I don't want
grapes. Unless you taste freedom, you
think you are already free.
Relationships - right & wrong, trying to
dominate, everyone wants to prove their
point, your idea is the best, for your
own survival, you get into conflict,
wars over simple things.
The moment that the idea that you have
is touched, you are provoked. Everything
you are is an idea, and you fight and
live by these ideas. You think you are
acting on your own it's not true. Nobody
would like to fight. Nobody wants to do
what they are doing and you respond -
I'm never going to be angry again.
Liberation from conditioning means
freedom from conditioning, free of all
these ideas, you observe your behavior
and can see how conditioning is living
your life. As it is happening, you see
how an idea is fighting. You don't
become free of those concepts, when you
become aware you make yourself aware of
the knowledge of what you are and
knowledge is useful to function in this
The conditioning in making up that
Complaint - "We cared for each other
before we got married." People feel
suffocated by the framework. It's
everywhere in life.
All forms of conditioning are slight
deviations, there is disturbance, and
there is anger.
When you recognize how you are not free,
it is governing you.
The very act of seeing is freedom.
Everything becomes knowledge, liberation
Generally we hear liberation from
ignorance, but Bhagavan says liberation
from knowledge, not functional knowledge
(how to repair a car). Philosophical,
GOD, self, the universe. Ultimate
truth-things that we don't know. Such
knowledge will become an obstacle to
experiencing things as they are.
We interpret the experience rather than
experiencing the experience that we
experience. Is this the real thing? The
mind will ask us how can we be sure that
it's not an illusion. Your experience
has transformed your heart and your love
and it doesn't matter.
We are all hypnotized. All the values we
have; $$money, questioning the
fundamental truth of our values. If you
feel love for the whole world, what does
it matter? Obsessed with the "absolute"
How many times do you come so close to
GOD and not recognize it "Oh God".
Liberation from knowledge is liberation
from speculative knowledge; not born
from your experience.
Liberation from the Mind:
What is enlightenment? There is a
different answer from Bhagavan every
time, there are many answers. What
Bhagavan was communicating was, that
there is no right view or "the truth",
don't hold on to any one view. No matter
how profound it is or feels. Freedom is
when there are no views. In one of the
classes, when the impossibility of change
strikes you, you are enlightened, that
is freedom from the mind.
You hope so much your mind will change
someday. Somehow you want to change it.
Somehow you're not happy with your
thoughts, its judging nature. The
problem is not the mind; the problem is
never the content. The problem is your
trying to change the content.
Freedom is in accepting the content,
freedom is in accepting the mind as it
is. Accepting the nature of the tiger
that eats the deer.
Mind is so, that is how it is
structured, that is how its nature is.
Free of the effort to change that mind.
When the impossibility of change strikes
you that is enlightenment. All it takes
is a moment of grace for that to happen.
You will have all these realizations
happen to you.
Liberation from the self is liberation
from the senses is liberation from life.
The time that you know is the time that
you created. If you close your eyes you
can create it in your mind. Your logic
and rational mind is limited. It can
only see past and future, here and
there. It always asks who is seeing
what. The observer and the absolute is
the observed, is one and the same. You
have to experience it. Time and space
are concepts created by our mind. We all
feel separate from each other; it is all
such an illusion. One part of mind is
observing itself that will give you some
relief and yet, even that is a concept.
Who is seeing? Sometimes you become the
whole universe. You are the stars, the
universe; this little homo sapien can't
sustain that experience for too long a
time. When you experience it, you know
There's an experience it's happening.
