Problems in life and the spiritual eye

Link to Original Document

We all have problems in life. Our life could be on a smooth sail and then out of the blue something unexpected happens. We could be best friends with someone and madly in love with spouse.

And then something happens and it starts to break. We normally blame the other person, right? What happened?

Well, based on our past karma and the way we shaped our mind, we slowly begin to brew resentment within us. For absolutely no reason. This can happen at work too. We start off a new job with high expectations and then we just drift apart. This brewing of resentment and also related to past karma, the dream castle which we created in the relation, or work just crumbles. Once that happens, it is difficult to rebuild it.

So if we want to be happy, we should stop building up resentment and anger and frustration. Dont be angry. People behave based on their past tendencies. They cant help it. Forgive them. Move on. Moreover, if you owe someone from the past, you will have to repay and the person may behave poorly with ill will towards you as part of karmic debt. Dont build up new karma with anger or hatred and try, try not to wish the other person bad. It is difficult. This is why, we Santana religion or hinduism talks about endurance. But this endurance was not understood well and people thought it was ok to be a door mat. No, no, that is not endurance that is stupidity.

Someone may hurt you, you should not hold ill will or anger or resentment, but you must do the right thing – protect your assets, be polite but firm, seek legal counsel if needed, whatever is needed as part of proper action.

So that was one thing. Now often times, things can become unbearable. This is true even if you have a Guru. What do you do? Well, talk with those on the spiritual path. But during those times, we seek to know when or will this ever end? In hinduism, there are 4 vedas – Sama, Rig, Yajir and Atharva vedas. A part of one of the Vedas is Astrology or Jyotish Vidya. This science slowly evolved over times. So use it. Enact your horoscope. Look up your horoscope. There are some very good softwares that can give you good general advice – like Goravani. ( Now knowing the software can give you a general idea of what one may anticipate.

But there are other things you can use to help you during difficult times. There are Mantras that can be effective. But the mantras have to be used properly. One must only eat fruits and milk and nuts. Not eat outside the home during Mantra. The mantras must be chanted, sitting in one specific area and the specified mantras must be finished in a certain time frame.

For Panoti – the famous or infamous Shani – Hanuman chalisa is helpful. Perhaps if you have a Guru he may give you a specific mantra to overcome issues. These are just general things. Some people use special gem stones. They may work only if properly charged with Mantras

Remember doing these things wont just solve the problem, you have to work on it and the mantra can aid you in the process.

Finally, there is God. Some people believe in a specific form of God. Some believe in something else. We all migrate towards what captured our attention – this does not mean what captured our attention is the final answer though. However, Astrology or Jyotish comes from the word Jyoti which means light. Not the light of the sun or the light bulb, but the light of God. This would be the best way to deal with it!. If only, we could see that inner light of God and learn to surrender to it, it would be the most effective and efficient way of dealing with problems. This does not mean problems wont arise but it gives us a way to move forward

So how is this done?

Yogananda has described the spiritual eye. It is a yellow or red color ring, with a blue light and a white star in the center.

The yellow light, as per Yogananda refers to the cosmic vibration.

The blue light is Kutastha or Krishna or Christ consciousness as he calls it

The white star is the cosmic consciousness with the 5 eminations.

I have described this in greater detail elsewhere.

Back to the problems – So when one is established in Kutastha – like Lahiri Mahasay described – then in time we learn to get rid of the problems. That was what he repeatedly described. All the translations and interpretations from the Upanishads, he described them as part of Kutastha !

Hope this gives you a brief way to move forward

This spiritual eye is difficult to see and even more challenging to have a constant vision of the same. I have drawn it elsewhere. If I get time, I will draw it again…:)

My best wishes and love to all those who struggle and are eager on the path. The stubborn mind and its habit of worrying, resenting, being anxious is difficult to overcome and hence we cannot remain in Kutastha the blue light of the spiritual eye.

Moksha or liberation

This is the problem. People read a little. Or a lot. From the internet. From blogs. From scriptures. From vedas. From religious books.

But the concept of needing inner purity is not there. Or if it is there, they think they already have it. But this delusion doe not end there. Often times there are misconceptions. Oh, we are human. God will forgive us. We dont need to make efforts to be pure. He will forgive us. Or she will forgive us.

Then comes along yoga. and Kundalini awakening. Many try on their own. Others find a Guru. Not a real Guru. Just a self proclaimed Guru. Of course a self proclaimed Guru will not insist on purity, He will give you convenient answers. He will say it is ok to do what you like, just chant or do the mantra. Or practice pranayama or sit in meditation. Your work is done. You will be free

Thus there is a web of deception.

This of course is not Yoga. Neither is it the way to Liberation or Moksha. Or the way to God.

I know most people find my concepts too much. It is not easy. Let us agree on one thing. A mind at peace is always wonderful. We may not have control over outside situations, but we can have control over the mind. Well, not really. Any attempt to control the mind creates more anger and agitation. The mind revolts. Gets angry, bitter and refuses to cooperate. Drifts to sleep or stupor and prefers alcohol or drugs

So the mind has to be changed, not controlled. This is point one

Point two. The mind will always be restless when it seeks happiness on the outside. The place where the mind runs outside the most is in sensual pleasures. Seeing things, talking and hearing things. Food, Sex. Once stricken by one or many,the mind will never know peace. It will constantly think of it, crave it, and when it does not get it, becomes bewildered, sad, anxious and just unhappy. It will be like rabid dog, going from one point to another, searching for something and biting without cause.

Point three. The only way to get peace of the mind is by getting rid of desire and that requires a fundamental change in the mind. I mean change, not suppression. How is this to be done?

Yoga. I am sure you guessed it. So scriptrures just mention that state of Atman or self – the state that is self sufficient. No longer seeking, the mind abated. It does not tell how to get there. Nor does it say what happens on the way. Lahiri Mahasaya talks about the Kutastha. This is a level, a beginning of sort. It describes the wonders of Kutastha. He describes the effects and mutiple reference to Kutastha in all books including the bible, Hindu religions, Upanishads etc.

However, there is only one book – about 600 plus pages long that describes Kutastha and what happens on the way there and the steps in transformation of the mind. It is the only book that talks about it in minute detail. Sadly that book is not available. Who knows where anyone can find Muktashastra, however, it was my desire to translate it. Such incredible books are always kept out of reach for most people. That I suspect is by design. I have tried in vain to get the book. What can I say or do?

Some day, I hope to be sufficiently pure, to be worthy of one page of that book !

A question – do fakes pay tribute to the truth by imitation or do they give bad name to the truth by their lies?

I suspect it is both.

Recently, the leader of Ra Ma institute Yogi Jagat, died , possibly PE ( pulmonary embolism). However rumors abound – she is still alive, she tried to escape from a gathering etc

She claimed to await kundalini.

So now an average reader, when they read about another Yoga fraud – will being here we go ! Yoga is fraud. In the limited investigation they perform they are quick on the draw to tarnish the reputation of Yoga but not blame the money and power hungry leaders or fake Gurus. And definitely not blame themselves for being a full and believing that kundalini Is easy and common

Right now, I doubt if there are 10 people with awakening – even minor. Those who have it have not advertised. One of them may have followers rest may have a few believers but not followers.

It is miraculous but the journey is definitely long. What can I say? There is a reason why it is not advertised. Having many followers is a certain sign that there is not much there.

You may argue Vivekananda, Ramana Maharishi, Yogananda had many followers. But few of the followers had awakening.

We have the tendency of get worshiping. We think if the person wears certain clothes, speaks Sanskrit, smiles in a certain way, he is a guru.

But a true Guru is now restricted by garments or language

His ability lies in deciphering the codes of the scriptures!! And helping others without even taking credit.

All birds that fly are not swans

There are far more crows than swans.

Swans fly solo. Crows May have groups. Hope you get the picture!
