Writing blogs

I have not been writing much
What is the point ? No one truly gets the concept

People continue in their ways. They try and perhaps make significant effort to go forward. But Their efforts are in vain – because they don’t want to change in their ways of thinking or give up the selfish thinking. It is like saying I want to make progress but their feet – are super glued to the floor. The intrinsic pattern of the selfish and desire seeking mind does not want to change Ego does not want to give itself up

Secondly in my opinion I wrote a lot. Very very basic and trivial things. To me it is basic and should be obvious.

The true joy a yogi has is in mediation. And millions of different ways God presents himself in mediation. Muktashastra, Yogamrut, Gyaneshwari Gita, Mahayoga vigyan are true books with in depth descriptions.

The journey itself is wondrous. How can anyone describe the joy of going through the Royal road of Brahmanadi ?
Every step is amazing.

Brahmanadi – it is not easy to open. A Guru can open it. But it closes quickly when we become selfish It opens in mediation. The first sign it is open is both nostrils open up. Then the fun begins.

Experiences without Brahmanadi open are not necessarily a full true experience. They are helpful but don’t forget true progress is going through the Brahmanadi Nadi.

By force I can’t reveal more on blogs. After all it is just a blog

My interest lies in that Royal road. Rest of the things I have written are trivial. A preparation of sort So if you find a Guru , you can be ready

I don’t see a single Guru out there who can talk about or open the Brahmanadi. There is no Yoga , no mediation, no samadhi, no karma yoga or gyan yoga or Bhakti yoga without the opening of Brahmanadi and going within

Sad is plight of the person that is satisfied with everything else they do. Go within involves opening of Brahma nadi. Sushumna. Once it is open, you will know love for God. You will know God is reality.

If you notice I don’t write much about Brahmanadi or what is to be expected when it opens You don’t need that information. You need to experience it.
Plus those things are too be heard from a Guru. Rest of the world Tends to abuse Yoga by giving false promises and collecting money

My days with my Guru was in simplicity. Hardly eating. Relinquishing sleep. Very simple living. No cot. Simple mattress Never about money. Inadequate bathroom. No shower. A simple bucket. Cold water. Your choice. Do you really want God? Or is your convenience more important ?

Few could benefit. Many went there. But those who had it right – left as kings of the universe !

Is my surrender complete?

This has to be with all your mind, all your emotions, not a shred of ego, with all your heart, no logic and no selfish interest that if I surrender God will take care of your wishes or needs. The surrender should be such – I don’t care if I am deprived of everything in life, I will give up all for thou God.

Seems foolish and impossible to do. For most – God is nothing more than a concept. Perhaps even a thought hammered down in your mind by reading books, hearing lectures and talks, and by people around you

There in lies the dilemma – we read wonderful things about God and then the mind challenges the concept of God and asks why do I suffer or why is there so much suffering in this world? The wise , all knowing , intelligent person will give a pat answer – karma. Yeah right! You want me to believe in past births? Seems more a matter of convenience or a well knit concept to help the weak mind who has a need of believing in God and how wonderful he is !

And then the mind constantly wants something in this world. Something fun. Without which , it breaks down. It looks forward in life – the hope or thought of nice things to come. Using that, the mind is willing to bear the current hardship of life

Enough said. Do you see the challenges the mind has in surrendering to God ? It is not an easy task.

What does this all boil down to?

1). Surrendering is an art. The word surrender is incomplete. Pranidhan is the best word. Described by Patanjali in Yoga darshan. It takes time
2) The mind is tricky. It’s desires and ego will make it difficult
3) IsGod a concept or real? Real for those who have a true Guru and if you have surrendered to him. In what way is it real? For such a very lucky disciple – he is more real than the table in front of you or the words you read or more task than the body v you feel. It then becomes easier to surrender. Easier but still will take decades after decades
4) Even if you don’t have a Guru, God confirms his existence in many small ways You will be amazed. If only you know how to evaluate your own life and events. Sometimes talking with a wise person helps. He can help you break the rut we get in
5) Calculative surrender has no role. Meaning, I will surrender so I can get wondrous things in life does not work. That is not surrender -just a business transaction

Anyway, what is the end result ? Here is it is in the words of Mother

Sweet Mother, what is meant by “the Divine gives Himself”?
It means exactly this: that the more you give yourself the more you have the experience — it is not just a feeling or impression or sensation, it is a total experience — that the more you give yourself to the Divine the more He is with you, totally, constantly, at every minute, in all your thoughts, all your needs, and that there’s no aspiration which does not receive an immediate answer; and you have the sense of a complete, constant intimacy, of a total nearness. It is as though you carried… as though the Divine were all the time with you; you walk and He walks with you, you sleep and He sleeps with you, you eat and He eats with you, you think and He thinks with you, you love and He is the love you have. But for this one must give himself entirely, totally, exclusively, reserve nothing, keep nothing for himself and not keep back anything, not disperse anything also: the least little thing in your being which is not given to the Divine is a waste; it is the wasting of your joy, something that lessens your happiness by that much, and all that you don’t give to the Divine is as though you were holding it in the way of the possibility of the Divine’s giving Himself to you. You don’t feel Him close to yourself, constantly with you, because you don’t belong to Him, because you belong to hundreds of other things and people; in your thought, your action, your feelings, impulses… there are millions of things which you do not give Him, and that is why you don’t feel Him always with you, because all these things are so many screens and walls between Him and you. But if you give Him everything, if you keep back nothing, He will be constantly and totally with you in all that you do, in all that you think, all that you feel, always, at each moment. But for this you must give yourself absolutely, keep back nothing; each little thing that you hold back is a stone you put down to build up a wall between the Divine and yourself. And then later you complain: “Oh, I don’t feel Him!” What would be surprising is that you could feel Him.

A miracle

Don’t expect this all the time

If miracles occurred to us all the time , we would lose its importance

But miracles do occur every second to the siddha and enlightened. But we can’t see them

Once in a while Shakti reveals those miracles to us

Here is a story of Yogananda

“I remember at the time of our first World Convocation, held at the Mother Center in 1950, Master was having a particular difficulty with his legs. He was not even able to stand or walk without the most extreme pain, so it was arranged that he would be driven in a car down to the tennis court where the gathering was to be held. We were all praying, and worrying, “How will he ever be able to get up onto the platform to give his talk?”

As the car drove up and stopped, those of us who knew the difficulties his body was going through at that time were holding our breath anxiously. The door opened and Master stepped out of the car—and we all gasped in unison, because it really seemed that Master did not walk but floated, his feet barely touching the ground, as he made his way up the ramp to the podium. He stood there for two hours and spoke to the people; and then he greeted everyone who had come—staying for many, many hours after his talk.

Afterward, when he returned to his rooms, he said to us all: “This has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. See how Divine Mother shows you the unreality of life and its alternating contrasts! On one side, you see how this body suffered; on this other side you see I am completely aloof. “I am held in the arms of Divine Mother; and I don’t know this body or its suffering at all.”
