Hero worshipping!

Link to Original Document

This is a big flaw that everyone has. When you think about it – it is a shame and disgrace. The news media, what’s app etc uses it to manipulate us. The advertising media uses it too

A few examples

  1. A person not washing hands after shaking hands with a celebrity or president
  2. The advertisement of Pepsi with a famous celebrity ( or anything else)
  3. What’s app is particularly vicious. People put in a quote with Vivekananda or Buddha. Now mind you they never said it. But it is misleading people want to sell their agenda with devious things like. Usually a bunch of cowards with no substance do that
  4. While talking , they will name drop Einstein or another famous person
  5. People quote a famous politician / even a living one – as if they recite the gospel
  6. A journalist will ask the presidential candidate how will you the global warming crises. You moron – there are world famous scientists working on it! This is a case of too much power in the hands of politicians in making agendas and decisions about a subject they know nothing of

My friends – being famous is not a criteria for validity of truth.

This is especially true in matters of religion. People go to someone famous. Popular. Because they are popular, they are given by default all signs of being liberated. Stories are made up. These stories are then converted to acceptance by the listener and the listener is trapped in his or her own acceptance of the trap. They are unable to escape and believe the lies , when they try to escape they feel guilty, scared.

In many ways , this is the foundation of cults most religious leaders form a cult of followers.

There are a few who read my blog. It is too many. What I write is the truth but it is not meant for you. It is meant for the extremely rare soul who knows the difficulty of winning over the challenges of the mind Trying to reach the perfect state of peace where there is joy, our own mind absorbed into divinity and no longer tainted by worldly attributes

But who really wants it? It is easier to enjoy the world. Laugh, travel, eat, etc

One of the first steps that you are on the way, you quickly see through religious leaders and their deception

You are only happy with words that have the ring of truth. You simply know it.

When you make more progress, things that are beautiful are no longer beautiful. It is a lie. The other day I was at a wedding. I saw many people dressed up very nicely. But my mind no longer reacts to beauty. Behind the veil of so called beauty, I saw ugly personalities – greedy, self serving arrogant people ! There are many people like this. Life after life that is all they do. No change, like the antiquated furniture in the living room

It is rare to find someone truly interested in the world greatest battle – the victory over your own emotions This battle is called Mahabharat!

What is ego?

Link to Original Document

Ego is a force within Maya, that has permeated all the different universes created by God

It is present every where . It is within Maya itself. And being present in Maya, we are under the illusion that Maya or the devil is real.

There is no Maya or the Devil.

It gets more tricky to understand. But we will stop here

Since Ego is in Maya , it is also in the soul. And if in soul it trickles down to Karana body, subtle body and then in physical body

From the physical body, it then becomes evident/ permeates outward as emotions and sense of doership

As doership, we feel we are smart doctors, good singers, very intelligent and practical in our work and decisions etc. With that ego, we now are associated with sense of doing and this leads to binding karma

As a result of ego, we become sensitive to things people tell us and carry the burden of I like this but can’t get it or I like this, I smart so I got it – the duality of pain and pleasure. A person with heavy ego, can’t bear the slightest thing someone tells them. Even a general comment is taken personally

Ego causes pain in many different ways.

Ego is the reason why, although you are very powerful you lose all your powers.

Any thought that is from the depths of meditation materializes. But due to ego of wanting you become weak and deprived of getting wishes fulfilled.

Oh the wonderful Atman ! So majestic. So powerful. So sublime. Can do anything with a thought. That is known as Sankalp shakti. Yet with ego we have wants and we lose that power

Ego has given us unhappiness. That ego is known as Ravana. Cannot be slayed except by Rama

In Mahabharata he is known as Bhishma. Bhishma means terrible. He was given a wish, you cannot die unless you wish it This ego is invincible.

Those who are advanced can see ego in meditation. It is an object. Not something abstract or just product of physiology of the body. It is an actual entity that goes with the soul from body to body. With practice one learns to see IT and then eliminate it

But there is more to it. There are specific steps to remove it.

There is a story of Yogananda. He invited a high court chief justice to give a lecture at one of his ashrams opening. The chief justice humiliated him for 30 min. Insulting what Yogananda was doing. A disgrace to society. Depending on others for the functioning of the ashram etc

Yogananda did not say a word for 30 min. Then he left saying if you feel it wise please attend the ceremony

Then on the day of the function the chief justice did arrive. And talked about the greatness of Yogananda – a trust Saint. Yogananda did not budge or get upset for even a second.

That is a sign of ego being vanquished

Repetition

[Link to Original Document]

Many things

Every process in progression is a repetition

Repetition is of 3 or 5 or 8 ( elements )

Example is of eating. I will not explain further. It is self explanatory

Since the repetition is from lowest level it has advantage and disadvantage

Advantage – analogy to the highest can be given

Disadvantage – people erroneously believe the lower level experience they had is the highest

Safe guard against this by following a few rules

  1. Be assured you not reached the highest. Literally a million more steps are still pending
  2. Divine experiences occur as you learn to go within. Stopping the rain, knowing the future, knowing what other people do are some examples. Gurudev made sure that his disciplines had a few examples like this so they can develop faith in Yoga. Of course it was a temporary gift.
  3. You will know things far better than any textbook including the Veda
  4. You can quickly find the mistakes others make. For example recently I read something so foolish – a person said the mind is consciousness ! Absurd. Shows he has no experience of consciousness at all
  5. It is true the mind is not restricted to the body but that does not make it consciousness

There are seven types of soul – each trying to go to a higher level

Sakala – those fully engrossed in the body

Pralaykala and Vidyankala are next 2

Those who have awakening are called

Mantra, mantra mahesh and mantra Maheshwar.

Above that is Swatantraya

None of them are ready for liberation

They have a variety of divine experiences such as hearing music, talking with shakti,a variety of siddhi etc

Above that is shiv level experiences. They get liberated in a few hundred years. Only them

Above that is Avatar.

Above them are eternal Siddhas

How do you know where you are ? Well, there are 5 spheres. Depending on what sphere is disclosed to you – you can figure out your progress

Long progress. Takes time

What about enjoying life? Here you can grossly understand the type of soul.

Sakala soul – after one enjoyment seems another enjoyment

Pralaykala – after enjoyment wonder what is this life about but don’t know what to do. There is depression often since the inner doors are not open

Vigyan Kala – know the way within, but are not adept about going within

Generally people are in different stages at different times of life

If you remain persistent, the lower stages vanishes

Since falling is part of the sequence, never have ego

Ego is a joy ride in which you side down effortlessly

Learn to recognize your ego

Hurt feelings and sensitivity are a reflection of your ego

Ego gets cut when you go above anahat chakra

The chakras are not located where you think they are

There are no kamal or lotus – but they are lotus since water does not stick to it Easy to peel

I write cryptic – do not take it at face value

The process is complicated. The complexity must be fully experienced and cleaned

Without that liberation is not possible
