Great quote from mother

If in the work you meet with some difficulties, look sincerely into yourself and there you will discover their origin.

**********

The difficulties in work come not from circumstances or petty outer occurrences, they come from something which is wrong in the inner attitude, especially in the vital attitude: egoism, ambition, fixity of mental conceptions regarding work, vanity, etc. And it is always good, in order to correct the disharmony, to look for the cause in oneself rather than in others.

The mind is the problem

The mind constantly seeks some source of happiness. Entertainment. It wants its demand fulfilled

When it does not get it , it gets angry and upset and then the person resorts to drugs , alcohol or depression.

This is true for everyone. However a yogi realizes its a ploy by the mind

Fault one – we seek pleasure outside not within. This will never quench the thirst

Fault two – instead of resorting to alcohol meditate deeper

Fault three – instead of getting depressed earnestly pray to God ? Am I not your favorite child ? Give me yourself. Show me. No. I don’t want riches or fame. I want you. Demand it. Repeatedly. If necessary for decades.

Eventually everything is set right in a few minutes

Signs of an awakened shakti

The best and in my opinion perfect description is given in chapter 6 of Gyaneshwari Gita

However unless you have a guru you will think it is an allegory and not real. In my opinion the description is real and perfect and not an allegory

Like i said a guru can help you sort it out

Gyaneshwari is a beautiful book. A must read in a lifetime

Difference in mahayoga and abhav yoga

There are some who believe they can go in deep samadhi and when they are out they claim they went into nirvana or nothingness and are happy

Yogananda warned against it. This is known as abhav yoga and the happiness felt is tamas

True samadhi / some call it maha yoga or siddha yoga / etc. is where you discover everything is in the “nothingness”. It really is not nothing. It is everything and is fully “alive”

That is what people should strive for

However to reach that status there are thousands of steps. You will not know any of the steps until you make the first step

Sheer foolishness

The soul is encased in 3 bodies. Gross, subtle ( sukshma) and causal or karana Realization must follow awareness and control of those three bodies first.

Merely saying I am divine or shudha atman or pure consciousness without realizing FULLY the three fretters DOES NOT WORK

Pick your path wisely. Think to yourself are you aware of the three bodies ? Don’t be foolish into thinking sukshma – is the body of dreams. It is more like the body after this body burns away. But that itself is binding

Much more progress is needed

So now you have 2 choices

After reading the previous blog – it should be clear You have 2 choices. Follow the millions of other techniques and guru and teachers and spiritual healers / awakeners online and in public

Or learn true yoga from someone who has accomplished it

The other option is to follow the stupid “gyana or path of knowledge ” and let arguing debating reading books and then think you have accomplished it

Or learn true yoga from someone who has accomplished it and get experience

The same is true for the misunderstood path of karma yoga – giving up fruits of actions or doing Bhakti by music and chanting You really can’t do those things properly until your established in Yoga

What will you do ? I know. You will continue to do what your doing Not even bother to ask for guidance People labor under the illusion of knowledge wisdom and understanding when in reality – according to Mother – there is little difference between them and a stone. Ouch

When will god shower his blessings ?

Yoga

All our concepts of yoga – a correction

Correct pronunciation is Yog not yogaa sadly even Indians are messing up

Yoga means union with the divine / God

Yoga is not about different postures or exercises. It is about meditation

Original Yoga as started by Patanjali – read up on it Yoga Darshan is the book. Vivekananda translated it well.

In Vibhuti Pad chapter – many “siddha” powers over nature have been described. Don’t chase powers is true. But listen up foolish people, when united with the divine powers over nature appear automatically

Now tell me who really does Yoga in this world ? Find me one person

Am I doing it correctly?

A recent study showed

According to Buddhist teaching, the self is an illusion. The religion preaches a fundamentally selfless worldview, encouraging followers to renounce individual desires and distance themselves from self-concern. To advance this perspective, millions of people around the world practice yoga and meditation.

But a recently published psychological study directly contradicts that approach, finding that contemporary meditation and yoga practices can actually inflate your ego.

In the paper, published online by University of Southampton and due to be published in the journal Psychological Science, researchers note that Buddhism’s teachings that a meditation practice helps overcome the ego conflicts with US psychologist William James’s argument that practicing any skill breeds a sense of self-enhancement (the psychological term for inflated self-regard.)

Since meditation is the only way to abolish ego , one has to accept that the current methods of meditation are faulty. Faulty to the degree that it makes ego worse !

Wake up my friends. Don’t follow foolish half baked ideas coming from guru who want fame finance and pleasures.

True methods should generate humility , tests in eyes for God , acceptance that much progress is yet to be made.

Most people have not even started. Worse still they go in the opposite direction Reading books do not help

Be sure you have made progress is when God tests you with problems and you can meditate at ease feeling joy and peace

Otherwise more effort is needed

Why do the true Guru not reveal things?

Perhaps the fault is with us. We are not ready

Those who have reached a certain level Learn one thing – that spiritual injunctions of not revealing things is a must. Do their blogs will say a few things but not directly

Yogananda did not say much about kriya yoga. Yes he told a few things verbally and it has spread around – yet many things associated with it has not surfaced

Vivekananda said even less

So many people cone looking for answers of jyoti midrange, khechari, shambhavi and aum techniques. But only a real guru can give it. My blogs don’t have it. So easier for everyone to pursue it elsewhere.

Sorry.

Good luck on your search
