Yes! I AM SHIVA

I am Shiva. The Infinite. Beyond Creation and Dissolution. SHIVOHAM!

Excerpts from a  few chat conversations with Antonino Moreti (Italy). The full version could possibly appear in some Italian magazine, if it is worth it. 🙂 Anyways, this could be interesting reading for some. The tone of the discussion is friendly, casual, leisurely and certainly non-provocative. Just to introduce A.Moreti, he is a spiritual enthusiast and a theatre artist. He liked my blogs because of “its straightforwardness, clarity and honesty and above all it makes sense.” And he thought it would be “interesting” to explore the man behind those words and ideas. And we communicated briefly, a few times because of time constraints. So, what follows is only about a fourth of what we have been discussing over chat. Enjoy…

A.M: Looking into your eyes, this question wells up in my mind. Are You SHIVA?

M: Yes. I am SHIVA.

A.M: And the other beings of the universe? Who are they?

M: All are SHIVA. All are units of SHIVA. All are drops of the same ocean.

A.M: Are you sure?

M: Yes. I am sure. I am witnessing Shiva every moment. All are Shiva.

A.M. Who or what is SHIVA?

M: Shiva is beyond any definitions at all. Attempting to define Shiva would be an adventure. A real Mission Impossible. 🙂 Shiva can only be experienced and not intellectually understood. A bucket cannot contain the water of the ocean.
Shiva has two distinct identities in human understanding which blurs at times. Shiva as the Supreme Parabrahma and Shiva as a finite entity who is married to Goddess Parvathy and has children. Shiva as the house holder represents human existence, a god with wife and children, yet supremely, spiritually powerful. He is a householder and a master at the same time. Master of masters – Supreme master and Saint of all saints – Supreme Saint. He floats with time and is timeless too.
On the other hand, Shiva as the Supreme Parabrahma is formless and beyond time and space. He is the indivisible unity. This Shiva has no beginning or end. He is Parabrahma. Shiva Linga represents that Shiva. It is multi dimensional or all-dimensional.  We also worship Shiva as a finite entity who is easy to get annoyed and angry (Kshipra Kopi) and also easy to please.(Kshipra Prasadi)
Here, I am talking about Shiva as Parabrahma, just the way Lord Krishna represents the Supreme in Bhagawad Gita. All identifications of such elevated consciousness are only with the Supreme formless which is beyond all dimensions. Another aspect of Shiva is Dakshinamoorthy, the knowledge incarnate. Shiva came as a “chandala”, a man of “low caste” in Indian caste system. (In reality, it is the individual combination of Gunas and the level of awareness that determines the stature of an individual, as proved here by the appearance of Shiva to Adi Shankara – and birth in a particular caste does not guarantee awareness. Krishna, Jesus, Buddha, Bhagawan Nithyananda and Shirdi Baba were not from priestly caste.). He came with four dogs to give wisdom to Adi Shankara (four dogs represent four vedas) (Dogs represent protection. Vedas are meant to protect Dharma. Protection aspect of Vedas are represented by Dogs – Eg: Dogs accompany Lord Dattatreya, the preserver of Dharma. And Lord Dattatreya is unity of Trinity. The principle of vedas accompany Him in the form of dogs. Dogs are also faithful, loyal and always alert) , Shiva as hunter (Vettakkorumakan), Hanumanji is also considered as an (amsha) essence of Shiva…So on and so forth…

Shiva is Himalayas. Shiva is all pervading. Shiva is everyone. Everyone is Shiva. Shiva is everything! Shivoham!

A.M. In Hindu tradition – I consider Hinduism as a path, a tradition and not a religion because there are 330 Million Gods in the tradition and there are many castes and sub-castes within the tradition – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva have equal importance. So, why only Shiva? Pardon me if this question is stupid.

M: No. The question is relevant. You are right. Hinduism is not a religion, it is a path, a tradition. There are 330 Million Gods, because 1/3 of you is God element. The soul element is the God element. Only if you worship the soul element within you, will you merge with the supreme soul, Parabrahman. Only if you recognize the soul element or God element in every being, will you be able to witness the all-pervading God who dwells in all beings. As long as we see differences, we are in ignorance. When you look around, if you only see God, you are complete. You are one with God. The path to Parabrahma is our soul.  There are 330million people in the world (a centuries old rough estimate which says “33 crores”. It also implies 33% God element in every being-roughly 1/3rd.) and each person is essentially a part of God, irresepective of whether one knows it or not. So, we have 330 million Gods. If we have 7 billion population on earth today, that means we have 7 Billion Gods too. Still 33% remains constant. Plus all other beings of the universe. All are God. Everything is God. There is nothing apart from God.
This also means that one can follow and accept any God, only if it suits one’s inherent constitution. Each individual’s constitution is unique. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva represent three aspects of the Supreme Parabrahma. That means, creation, maintenance and dissolution. They have equal importance. They all are same. All manifestations are formed out of the Supreme un-manifested. Just some variety in subtlety, but essentially the same. Supreme Un-manifested is raw energy. So, each one of the trinity are equal and equally powerful. My mention about SHIVA is SHIVA as Parabrahma, not an entity with the limited role of dissolution. In that context, Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma are one and the same. There is no trinity. There is only unity. There is only Parabrahma. Behind all manifestations is one energy. That is Parabrahma. The real source. All forms represent the formless. All forms have materialized from and will dissolve back into the formless.

A.M. What is consciousness?

M: Shiva is consciousness. Consciousness is Shiva.

A.M. So, what are we?

M: Consciousness. Shiva.

A.M. Is there any degree variation?

M: There are no degree variations. Consciousness is full and complete. But, there is degree variation in awareness. Some experience fully, some partially, some randomly and some do not experience at all. Those who constantly experience, will exist in bliss and silence, and those who seldom experience will keep talking theories, book knowledge or someone’s words. 🙂

A gateway far beyond all book knowledge - the mighty Third Eye of Shiva...

A.M. Mohanji, I know that you have not accumulated wealth in this life and that you prefer to spend it in support of the poor and helpless. Is there anything worth nurturing in this life, apart from Spirituality?

M: Nothing is worth nurturing in this life apart from awareness. Even spirituality is not worth nurturing. Spirituality is a state, which is natural and is also an ingredient of our existence. If spirituality becomes repetitive and ritualistic, it loses its purpose. Spirituality usually intensifies and dilutes as per the circumstance and necessity. Spirituality happens to all, sooner or later, because it is related to spirit, the same energy that runs our life! 🙂 So, whether we nurture it or not, it will happen.
Usually, people access spirituality only when helplessness is at its peak. When there is nowhere else to go, we turn to God. This is human nature. There is nothing worth nurturing external to us. We will have to leave everything behind when we leave, including wealth and relationships.
AWARENESSS is the only aspect within us that is worth nurturing. Awareness that we nurture grows with us, through lifetimes. It is worth nurturing. Awareness is our connectivity into consciousness, ability to ‘plug in’ at will. Just like we grow from class to class, year by year, we grow in awareness through life times. As awareness grows, higher consciousness becomes accessable. It has always been available, but, until we have the faculty to access the higher consciousness, we cannot enjoy it. Awareness is the path that helps us reach higher realms of consciousness. In order to cross the mighty ocean of duality and reach the realm of non-dual consciousness, we need the help of higher awareness. It is worth investing in. It is the only thing worth investing in and it is purely an internal matter. Nothing external, even your external Guru, can only direct you to your internal Guru. Guru helps to remove your ignorance or Maya, by showing the light of wisdom. But, it is your increased awareness that makes you realize who you actually are!

A.M. What practice helps develop higher awareness?

M: Witnesshood. (Sakshi Bhav) Being in NOW.

A.M. What is real wealth?

M: That which can be carried with you when you die. That wealth is awareness. Only awareness. This is why meditation is important. Contemplation on truth is important. Right understanding is important. Death cannot remove awareness from you. Awareness travels with the soul along with other samskaaras and unfulfilled desires, when it sheds the body. Death snatches everything else away from an existence. So, the only thing that is worth striving for, is awareness. Awareness happens from within. Money and wealth is always existing outside of you. It is certainly good for terrestrial existence. You can take only what is within you, at the time of death. That means, only what is close to the soul can be taken by the soul. Body and everything outside of the body must be left behind. We must be aware of this truth always.

A.M: How do we know that awareness is growing in us?

M: Usual expression of higher awareness is decreased dependancy on everything outside of you. We will automatically distance ourselves from greed, selfishness, anger, dissatisfaction with what we have and craving for what we do not have, perpetual sadness, jealousy, competition with one another, comparisons, inertia and accumulation oriented-ness etc; and we spontaneously shift to selflessness, kindness, compassion, Unconditional Love…. Self-sufficiency and happiness with or without a thing, anything, is a clear sign of increased awareness. Having everything and not needing anything is real richness. Real richness is a state of mind. That is when nothing outward attracts us anymore. Of course, even while awareness increases, samskaaras, still in-built in our nature, continue to express forth. But our dependency level will change. We start to lead a liberated existence. In such an existence, a particular ritual, meditation, manthra, chanting or anything that usually makes us feel happy or comfortable will not be a necessity anymore. We will not be bound by anything. No habits bind us. We stay liberated from within. Such a person can walk any path, do anything – but nothing will touch him nor will he become dependent on it. If these aspects of higher awareness are practiced consciously, awareness will grow automatically. So, reversal also works! 🙂 That is, when we consciously practice the visible terrestrial signs of higher awareness, it will eventually lead to higher awareness.

A.M. Mohanji, I like your style, your clarity and if I may, straight to the point approach. Tell me, how do we gain that clarity?

M: Simple. Be me. Be my consciousness. Simply – BE.

A.M. What is knowledge?

M: Just an intellectual requirement.

A.M. Does knowledge exist?

M: Apart from you? NO. Apart from you? YES.

A.M. I do not understand.

M: You are knowledge incarnate. Everything is within you. So, knowledge does not exist apart from you. You are knowledge incarnate, yet your intellect fails to recognise that and seeks knowledge outside of you, using your senses. This is highly limited. Too much of limitations. One has lots of food at home; good quality food. Yet, he prefers to go out and eat from the street. The beautiful ocean within us goes unrecognized and the small pool outside is appreciated. It takes lots of awareness to recognize what lies within you, instead we try to find happiness outside of us. So, in the context of intellect, Yes, knowledge is outside of you. So, while the very truth is “NO” as all knowledge is within you; while in terms of Maya, it is – “YES”.

A.M. Understood. So, what exists outside of us?

M: Nothing.

A.M. Then why is this illusion? Why is this drama?

M: Just multiple expressions of Maya. Maya at work! Multiple expressions of Duality. Relativity at work.

A.M. I agree. When everything boils down, when all waves subside, the still ocean remains.

M: Absolutely. And the ocean itself is Maya, if you are witnessing the ocean from outside. If you recognize that you are the ocean yourself, then, it would be just a realization – Aham Brahmasmi! There is no “me” . There is nothing apart from me.  🙂 There is nothing to “know”.

A.M. Ah! WOW! You said it so simply. That is a profound truth indeed!.

M: This is the same truth that all the saints and yogis have told us ever since time began. This information is nothing new. 🙂

One is all and all is One. What seems as separate is illusion! Living in illusions, we fail to “see” the reality.

A.M. Mohanji, it is a week since we communicated. I have been assimiliating what you discussed with me so far.

M: And did you finally realize that it is all a bunch of crap? 🙂

A.M. 😮 On the contrary, I feel this would be useful for the generations to come.

M: 😮 Do not worry about generations to come. We have no real control on the future. There will be others to guide the generations to come. We have only NOW to consider. Is it useful NOW? Yes? Then it is worth it.

A.M. My cousin Liz says she is in love with you. She wants to marry you. 😮

M: HA HA. What a joke! Anyways, I am happily married indeed, in the terrestrial terms! But sure, Liz is certainly welcome to marry my consciousness. 🙂 That is the real me. It is worth it as it is permanent. As a human being, I do not “exist”. And this body is temporary, fragile and highly perishable. All are welcome to marry my consciousness. 🙂  16008 women married Krishna’s consciousness and attained liberation.  Consciousness is eternal. Through my consciousness, I can have many “wives”, beyond gender, space and time. 🙂 Moreover, terrestrial marriage is usually a deep entanglement, and often it leads to jealousy and kind of ownership, unless higher awareness and lack of expectation is developed from deep within. Marriage should never be based on boredom, escapism, expectation and infatuation, in terrestrial terms. Marriage should always be purpose-bound; two people coming together for a larger purpose in existence which leads to perfect fulfillment of joint karmic agenda. And I believe Liz is at least 40 years older than me – so it is important for her to marry my consciousness before it is too late? 🙂

A.M. HA HA…. What is marriage for you?

M: Completion.

A.M. Completion of?

M: Journey. Completion in Life. Completion of a Karmic life, objectively speaking.

A.M. Mohanji, what is your religion?

M: Religion of Love. All other religions are just barriers, walls. I only believe in Unconditional Love beyond all human barriers.

A.M. Mohanji, how do you handle three or more distinctly different planes of existence equally? A. Professional B. Spiritual C. Charity D. Family E. Socio-commercial and never mix them ever? Where do you get so much energy from? Don’t you get tired?

M: This is simple. We are everything. We are a father, husband, son, boss, servant, social being, commercial being etc etc. When you operate, be extremely objective. Do not blur between tasks. And do not procrastinate. JUST DO IT. Work should be considered as sacred – as worship. If we know what we are doing, and if our mind is firm on our activity of the moment without oscillation, time is aplenty. Procrastination saps a lot of time from our lives and leaves us tired and inefficient. People think a lot and avoid all actions and later complain that life is not treating them well or is worthless! I fail to understand them. 🙂 🙂 Lastly, I have never been afraid to walk alone. I do not understand the meaning of the word FEAR! Fear paralyzes us and marries or binds us with forceful inaction. I believe in truthful action where fear has no existence. When you love what you do, when your life is purposeful, there will not be any tiredness, or boredom. Tedium is a by-product of having to do what you do not enjoy doing. I enjoy what I do. I do not get tired. My path is clear and life is purpose-bound. I am a passionate man. 🙂

A.M. Important Question: What is Shaktipat?

M: 🙂 Important Answer: Read my past blogs. 🙂

A.M. Seriously, Mohanji, I would like a precise answer from you. I have read what you have said earlier. I want to give something more precise to the world. You could do that through me? 🙂

M: Whatever I ever gave is precise. Shaktipat is the infusion of a higher energy into the often static lower energy planes in existence. The higher energy activates everything dormant. It brightens up the cells and rejuvenates the existence. It removes blockages and also changes or upgrades the frequency of the receiver.

A.M. What about Pranapath and Shivapath?

M: Theory is the same. Intensity is different and effect is different. How does a stone become a deity? When the prana or the power of the deity is infused into the stone in a ritualistic manner, the stone becomes God. Likewise, we are stones of existence or at least stone-like, often insensitive and unresponsive. 🙂 Please do not take me wrong – no arguements please. 😮 Just understand the context, the example, in its light. I am not calling men – stones. So, when matter gets life, it becomes an entity. Likewise, through Shaktipat, we rejuvenate and re-vitalise the life force which elevates the receivers. It takes them to higher dimensions. It changes their inner software. There are different manthras and methods for installing different deities, right? Likewise, there are differences in the energy levels and capacities of each. Each person gets only what he/she can handle. What happens when a 20 watt bulb gets a 1000 watt infusion? Just for argument’s sake, what happens when a normal human womb receives the soul of an Avatar?(It is highly unlikely) The womb will not be able to hold that soul for long. The womb will burst. Of course, an avatar always chooses the right mother to deliver it; the entity who is powerful enough to bring forth an avatar. I am describing this only for understanding’s sake. Natural frequency of an individual is never violated when Shaktipat is delivered. This is why outstanding results are recorded from around the world.
All of us have our set of blockages as we have our levels of awareness. Shaktipat shifts the level of consciousness in an individual, burning the karmas that are blocking the way and removing blockages in multiple levels such as Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, so on and so forth. Who will be benefited the most from Shaktipat? Those who are open and receptive. Receptivity makes all the difference. Some people come with a closed mind and complain that they felt nothing. Such people blame me as ineffective and will never accept that they were not open to receiving the Shaktipat. 🙂 Human nature!

A.M. We in Europe are a bit addicted to Lineage. 🙂 Does lineage of a Guru matter?

M: In the family of a legend, can you expect a similar prodigy in each generation? Most of our past Great Masters just happened or appeared from nowhere. They shone bright just because of their stature. A Guru might be of high calibre. It does not mean that any of his disciple are of his calibre. Likewise, look at the whole Datta tradition, individuals became prominant because of their stature. So, stature is more important. Spiritual Stature. Pedigree cannot guarantee stature. It can only  guarantee status. Often people mistake status for stature. Status may get us name, position and fame. But, stature has got to be acquired through lifetimes of spiritual practice. Who cared about the lineage of Adi Shankara, Vyasa, Vasishta, Shirdi Sai Baba? Everyone respected their stature. So, stature has much more value than status, pedigree or lineage. Lineage only tells about the path, and perhaps guarantees status; but can never guarantee stature.

A.M. Mohanji, A funny question – Are you real? I often feel that you are not real, that you do no exist.

M: 🙂 It is not a funny question. It is a good question. No. I am also an illusion. I do not exist.

A.M. How can I gain clarity?

M: Shift in consciousness brings forth the corresponding clarity.

A.M. How can there be differences? How can there be high and low?

M: There are no highs and lows in the absolute sense. There are only variations in vision and awareness. Physical manifestations or representations are only expressions of relativity. How can there be high without a low? How can relativity be expressed without duality?

A.M. Relativity confuses….

M: HA HA.. Answer lies within the question itself. Go beyond relativity – confusion ends there. 🙂

A.M. How long will you work in the highly competitive commercial world or among the pretensions and the heavy gross?

M: As long as this heart beats, I will work, but perhaps not in the highly competitive commercial world of profits and pretensions. I am proving a point here. We can operate in contradicting worlds with equal ease and effortlessness, if we have the will to. We can remain pure in all worlds if you choose to. Escapism is not a solution. Be at home where ever we are. Environment does not matter. Our deepest determination and will matters. And spirituality is not only for saints. It is accessible to all, it is inherent in all. Renunciation is a state of mind. You need not go to Himalayas for that.

A.M. Mohanji, we cannot have enough of you.

M: I thought the world is fed up of me. 🙂 Mohanji is not a person. It is a continuation. It is a constitution or a constellation. It is consciousness. It will always exist, even after this body goes back to where it came from.

Timeless Existence….

A.M. How are you today Mohanji? You were not well, last week

M: Consciousness is the same. Body keeps floating up and down. 🙂

A.M. Mohanji, what do you see in people, when you address large gathering? Their body, soul or karma?

M: I see SHIVA. All are Shiva. All are expressions of myself, just acting out individual karmas. No differences between one and the other.

A.M. Between man and woman too?

M: What has gender got to do with it? All are same. What is the gender of the soul? What is the gender of Parabrahma, the supreme soul?

A.M. Then why does Hindu religion have Gods and Goddesses? Why does Shiva have a wife? Why do you have a wife too?

M: HA HA 🙂 A. Everything are reflections of Parabrahma. All are one. B. Duality is the prime expression of relativity. So, there is two. “One” represents unity. There is nothing apart from one. Two represents relativity – You and Me. When  you and me unite, we become one – Unity. Shiva is the energy aspect while Parvati is the material aspect. Expressions become complete when they unite. But, essentially, man is an extension or woman and vice versa. Shiva is also Ardha Nariswara (Man and woman in one) I have married because this completes this soul’s journey too. Womanhood is sacred. Woman is mother. This is why we worship woman.

A.M. Your answers amaze me. So, all Gods and Goddesses are one?

M: Essentially one. All Gurus are one too. All knowledge is one. You are Unity. When you work through the body that you have rented for the time being, you feel divided from the Father. When you return the body to earth, you unite back again with your Father. We have attributed tasks and purposes to Gods and Goddesses. They represent that task. We have created deities based on certain systems, worship methods and certain mathematical calculations. If there are changes in that, there will be changes in deities too. There are Mulamanthras for each deity – the root manthra. The root sustains the deity. The root manthra maintains its attributed strength. There is nothing apart from ONE. What ever is apart from ONE is Illusion, Maya.

A.M. Did you ever fear that people may not understand you?

M: No. I never had any insecurity and will never have. I do not keep any agenda.

A.M. What is FEAR for you?

M: Illusion. Fear does not exist.

A.M. Do you have any fears?

M: No.

A.M. Even the loss of the near and dear ones?

M: I have already experienced the loss of near and dear ones in this life. I know how it feels.

A.M. What actually is terrestrial life?

M: Terrestrial life is only about various experiences.

A.M. When you look at the world, what do you see?

M: A Divine Comedy or Errors. HA HA

A.M. Life is comedy or errors for you?

M: Yes. It is a grand joke. I laugh at the seriousness of people. All are grumpy and serious. People are tired and wrinkled. HA HA 🙂 People are afraid to laugh – as if their teeth will fall off. HA HA With all that seriousness, they will die and go. What do they gain? I always laugh at life. There is nothing to be serious about here. It is indeed a comedy of errors. There is only this moment at our disposal. We do not even know our morrows. Then why worry at all?

A.M. Why errors?

M: Errors due to wrong identifications. Such as people think I am Mohan. I am Mohan for this world. I am not just Mohan. When I die, this body will be called Mohan’s body. People think they are their mind or intellect. Even that is not true.  A philosopher said “I think therefore I am”. So, what about him when he does not think – such as, in deep sleep state? Just look around. You can see wrong identifications all over. People believe they are something else and behave accordingly. HA HA

A.M. Last question. What is your real name? Why do you use Para Brahma as your FB name?

M: HA HA. 🙂 My official name is P.K.Mohan. P – family name and K – name of my Grand father. It is still my official name. Mohanji is the name that is used in the spiritual circle. This was initiated by a saint. And he started calling me Mohanji first and everyone followed afterwards. Mohan is the name and “Ji” is a respectful way of addressing. I do not call myself Mohanji. HA HA.
Moreover, I always sign off as “M” because the alphabet “M” usually has no value by itself. It needs something more, some more alphabets to gain meaning. So, I am just an alphabet, meaningless by itself, transitory, temporary and momentary. I keep myself as insignificant as I can. I have used the name Para Brahma in my Face Book page because, that is the mirror that I am showing to the world. Parabrahma is unity. Two words Para and Brahma cannot exist as duality. They must merge into one. It exists as an illusion. It must merge and is always merged as an entity. Secondly, it is a reminder as to who you are and where you belong to. You are Parabrahma and you belong there. Parabrahma is the Father, from whom all dualities have originated. So, this might tell you that we all are one and there is no duality amongst us and what ever we see as duality is just a grand illusion. So, the concept is the same as applying sacred ash on our forhead. Ash is where we came from and ash is where we will return to. We are just a handful of ash in reality. The ash on the forehead is a reminder. It teaches humility. Likewise, I used that name to remind who you are and what you think you are now. Two words represent duality, truth and illusion. I exist beyond all these.

Till We Meet Again….

Infinite Love

M

May Bliss be the thread of our Life on Earth. May Kindness and Compassion be our Expression. May gratefulness be our Attitude in Life.

Avatar and the Shift

An Avatar is a Dharmic Existence

Q: What is the difference between a true Avatar and a normal birth?

A: The difference is in Dharma and Karma. An Avatar takes a physical birth for a dharmic purpose. A normal birth is a birth for a karmic purpose. Liberated souls thus take human form for upholding the Dharma (duty and truth) without any karmic binding. They wait and choose the right wombs at the right time. Higher souls happen as mothers and fathers to bring forth such an Avatar to earth. Many liberated souls take birth to aid the Avatar in accomplishing His task. The very life of an Avatar becomes the message for generations to come. An Avatar operates on pure consciousness, without emotions or attachments. He or She just goes about doing the appointed purpose, objectively, without inhibitions. Liberated souls come back only for the higher purpose of upholding Dharma, or imparting wisdom which will in turn help uphold Dharma.

Life of a Siddha is Incomprehensible

Q: The death of an Avatar means?

A: When an Avatar leaves the body, it just means a shift from limitedness to unlimitedness. It means He need not operate from a limited body state anymore,  but will operate from that of unlimited super conscious state. Physical death is only a shift. It has no further value. Physical body is a severe limitation to a liberated soul. It is like a bird inside a cage. Even if the cage is made of Gold, a cage is a cage and the imprisoned bird has no value for the material out of which the cage is made. It stays to operate because it has appeared for a purpose. It must stay on, until the mission is accomplished. It does. And it leaves as effortlessly as it arrived, smiling and without any attachments.

The Divine Comedy called LIFE

Q: Attachments make a being karmic?

A: Emotions related to Attachments make a being karmic. When an Avatar operates, it is  impossible for emotions to creep in. An Avatar does not slip from dharmic to karmic existence. He always operates dharmically and for a higher purpose. He operates in perfect equanimity. He is purpose-bound and can never deviate from it. Emotions are displayed because the human frame cannot be insensitive. However, emotions do not bind an Avatar. Effortlessness is a symbol of their stature. Handling hardships with a smile unintentionally displays their true stature.

Eyes Catch Glitter. Heart Recognizes the TRUTH – Shirdi Sai Baba As a Young Avadhoota, original photo

Q: How can we recognize a higher soul?

A: Primarily through His expressions. You can know Him and understand Him, only if He chooses to display Himself. Many high souls walk the Earth, hidden from the Human ken. That is why many liberated Masters remain invisible. They are indeed performing their higher Dharma, relentlessely, without expectations, away from the public eye. This is also perfection in their sadhana ( spiritual practice ). This selfless service is the ultimate spiritual practice for them.

The Shift is in Human Consciousness

Q: What exactly is The Shift?

A: Shift in human consciousness.

Shift is Afoot

Q: Is the shift bound to happen?

A: It is already happening. Look at the pace of your own life now. You are moving so fast, the time for procrastination has reduced tremendously. The time to think or brood is very less. Dis-illusionment is more because many cannot cope with the pace of our existence. Existence is pushing us to be in the present, in the NOW. Our earlier generation had much more space and time and were not compelled to make as many “reports” as we do now. Look at the difference in attitudes. Either you are pushed to operate emotionally (and that means react constantly), or you are pushed to go within. You have only two choices in today’s world; either to play or get out of the ground. Those who have the eligibility, the will to hold on to the ladder and move higher up, can withstand the time. Those who cannot, will fall and get sucked by the whirlpool. They may not come back to the same place. Whirlpools always leave the matter elsewhere. Matter is bound to be re born; yet, at a different location and a different time. Those who can catch the vibrations well will operate in the present and get elevated to higher consciousness based on simplicity, purity and truth. Their awareness level will increase. The grosser will perish. The subtler will survive. This is the shift of consciousness.

Expression of Divine Consciousness is Unconditional LOVE

Q: In simple terms, what is higher and lower consciousness?

A: One who perpetually operates from the realms of Unconditional Love, possesses higher consciousness. He is selfless, kind, truthful and unattached to his actions. One who perpetually operates in the realms of selfishness, “I” ness, possessiveness, ownership, Greed, Fear, etc. operates from the lower consciousness. The operating levels declare the stature of the being.

Supreme Consciousness is Boundless Joy

Q: When does the True Love blossom in the heart of a seeker?

A: When detachment happens. Love will be for the sake of love. Love will become truly unconditional. True beauty of existence can be witnessed only through the divine sight or through the third eye. The more you operate through your third eye, you can only witness the grandeur and beauty of the creation and the Creator. You cannot see imperfection. The eyes that witness imperfection are the regular eyes, combined with regular mind. A being of higher awareness can only see perfection in the whole universe. “That what is beyond, is perfect. This, the limited, is perfect. When limitedness gets dissolved, only the grand perfection remains in its unlimited form.”

Q: Who makes do’s and don’t?

A: Limited mind.

Q: What creates Samskaaras?

A: Habits. Usually, habits are emotional in nature. Repetitive action creates attachment to action.

Q: What is ego?

A: Do er ship. The feeling that you are the “doer”.

Q: What creates attachment?

A: Everything. Any thought, word, action along with emotion creates binding and attachment.

Your True Friend is Your own SELF

Q: Who is our real friend; true friend?

A: Your Self; Your own Soul. Nobody is more closer to you than your soul.

Only YOU can defeat yourself. No one else can.

Q: Who is our worst enemy?

A: Yourself. Nobody can destroy you as much as you yourself can do. You can be “defeated” and “killed” only if you choose to. You can be liberated from everything if you choose to. It depends on what you choose. Your worst enemy and best friend is yourself. All others are secondary. So, how can we blame others for our weakness, or our fall?

Celibacy is a State...Marriage has nothing to do with it.

Q: What is celibacy?

A: It is a state of mind. It is a level of awareness. It is detachment in action.

Escapism only postpones an inevitable action to a later date.

Q: Can sex deter from the path of liberation?

A: No. Need to have sex, is a deep-rooted samskaara. Avoiding it is escapism. Over indulgence is attachment. Attachment is bondage.  Equanimity in sex will never deter liberation. Even amrut (celestial nectar) in excess can work as a poison to its consumer. Escapism only postpones an inevitable action to a later date. It never eradicates the seed of that action. It is more appropriate to go through the action, if you have to, rather than keeping it suppressed, what ever the action is. Every thought, word and action has the potential to create your destiny. Hence, everything that you experience today, has been voluntarily created by yourself at some point of your multiple existence. There is no point in comparing, complaining or postponing. Acceptance and ownership, in that aspect, will reduce your agony. Postponement will only harbor heaviness due to non-action. This is not only about sex, but everything related to life. A society-bound man, fearing a tarnished reputation, often lives in pretension. This only brings him back again and again to this terrestrial existence. At least one day of unpretentious living is much more important than a life time of pretentious existence.

Liberation is Possible - RIGHT NOW

Q: Can liberation be a reality?

A: Indeed, but that depends on the seeker’s attitude. You get what you deserve. Guru appears at the right moment, when the disciple is ripe and ready for him. You detach from a true Guru when expectations creep in. True Gurus consistently destroy the tendency of expectation in their disciples. Unripe disciples fall. They get dis illusioned and walk away to more predictable Masters. True Gurus are unpredictable. They do not conform to the regular expected norms of the society. Expectation is the biggest treason. All are prone to its lure. Expectations alienate minds. They build boundaries, create traffic jams and road blocks. Expectations create calamities. They shrinks the heart chakra and the ability to express your true nature, which is to love without expectations. Expectations make love conditional. Expectations take away the real flavor of life. Expectations even destroy, at times. So, liberation depends on the seeker’s attitude and ability to move from moment to moment without expectations, as a gliding fluid, completely present in the present, operating through the vehicle of unconditional love, selflessly, and with commitment to the truth, until he/she realizes that there is no distance between the seeker and the sought. The seeker then merges with the sought.

Experience is Golden. Words are Burden.

Q: Can you recommend me some books for this purpose?

A: Books cannot take you to liberation. Reading also amounts to doing. Through doing, none can get enlightened. Only through beingness can one get enlightened. Beingness is a perpetual state. Beingness is existence in awareness. This cannot be achieved through books. Books can explain you what beingness could be, as an intellectual understanding. It can also limit you, because you will start expecting similar results, in your own spiritual practice. Expectation binds and takes away the beauty of experience, especially if your perception or expectation of a result does not match the reality. There should be deliberate attempt to limit doingness and shift to beingness. It can be achieved effortlessly, by just deciding to operate in the present always. By deliberately bringing your mind to every thought, word and action. By having presence of mind, along with sincere practice of expressing unconditional love and gratitude, against all odds. This will lead to beingness. Perpetual beingness will necessarily lead to liberation.

There are some books that help your clarity and awareness. Some of them are: The Bhagawad Gita, Autobiography of a Yogi, Sai Satcharitha, Chidakasha Gita, etc. Too much knowledge is heaviness. It also deepens your ego emotion. When knowledge becomes a burden, it slows down your spiritual progress. Less luggage, more comfort. This is the fundamental truth of existence.

Remain Childlike. Remain Innocent. Remain in LOVE

Q: What is the least I can do to remain spiritual?

A: Love Unconditionally. Serve Unconditionally. Let all your relationships be beyond conditions and expectations.

Q: What is right and what is wrong in spirituality?

A: Nothing. Everything just is.

Q:  Do you agree with the way the world goes now?

A: I agree. What more can an individual do, against the mighty collective consciousness of a generation? I am far too small to create a mighty wave of change. Man gets what he deserves. So, I agree. Resistance means agony. So, I agree.

We Walk together, as long as Karma Takes us. No worries. No Regrets

Q: Why do friends part?

A: When combined karmic agenda ends, people part. When it begins, people meet or come together. The same applies to marriage, partnerships, love affairs, etc. People need common karmic agenda to be together. It can never happen otherwise.

Q: Mohanji, I am having sleepless nights.

A: Dylan, Me too. I have not “slept” since ages. Why do we need sleep? Sleep from what? There is only one reality, one Truth. Lets rather remain awake to that reality or truth. I believe you are on the right track.

I always Call. Who actually takes my call???

Q: Why didn’t you call me? Why didn’t you wake me up?

A: I have always called you, since generations. How come you never heard my call? Well – Who has actually listened to my calls? I tried to wake you up many times, but, you chose to sleep. I respect your choice. I am available. Using me is your discretion. I bring light to you. Choosing light or darkness is your discretion. Your decision does not affect the light nor does it affect the darkness. Those who witness light in darkness, remain in light always.

Q: Will I ever be blessed?

A: Have faith. You will be blessed.

Remain Blessed.

LOVE YOU…

What More can I do with Words, than I can perform with my Silence???

Dharma of Existence

Who Buys Silence? We all are "Glitter Shoppers"

My Dear Brothers and Sisters

In a world where everyone talks and no one listens, I hate to add more sound. I always feel and am sure that I can do much more through my silence and being-ness rather than the movement, external articulation and doing-ness. People who can touch and feel silence deeply, from deep within their heart, can be elevated to the highest, this way. The gross minds with terrestrial and more physically tangible expectations will be terribly disappointed. Vomiting emotions indiscriminately and clinging on to habits and conditionings, they expect us to do miracles and liberate them.

Who will buy the intangible, even if it is the real?

We can wake up those who are sleeping. Can we wake up those who pretend to be asleep? People cannot stop accumulating garbage. Yet, they expect us to do the cleansing part. This is the way the world goes. Pretensions. Gross pretensions and unjustified expectations. Images, Words, Sounds, all proclaiming something sensory and tangible or “value for money” and people run after them. People sell people, their intellect and emotions. They cheat and kill. What can silence and subtlety do in a world of gross sounds and human – induced bitter agonies? When people refuse to give up, how can we give in? When people like to choose emotions rather than liberation, who visits our store? This being the truth, religiously, we open the shop everyday, irrespective whether anyone comes to buy or not. Some come out of curiosity and do not invest. They peep from outside and disappear. Some taste a little, never buy and leave after some time. Some stay for sometime and leave without even tasting. Very few make a purchase. Still, some do not use what they bought. Some abuse. Some discard. Out of a million of such window shoppers, perhaps only one strikes the deal. If the shop keeper lives with expectations, he will die a sad man. If he stays without expectations, he will not be affected. Anyways, that is not the story here. If you have the time, please read on….

We have already spoken about the eternal Sanatana Dharma or basic ground rules of existence. What follows are messages from the soul of our beloved Mother Earth. Let us spend a few minutes in introspection into our own conscience and see what we have done so far and what more we can do, to deliver a few more drops of fresh air into the parched lungs of the Mother. The Mother speaks…..

” My beloved children, you have been busy. Too busy to remember me. I know that. No complaints. I appreciate that you are busy. I see you emotional and always under tremendous stress. Your Father, the eternal Almighty, never wanted you to burn out like this. Remember, He, who is the creator and maintainer of the whole universe, is not as busy as you are!!! Please think about it. Why have you brought all these burdens onto yourself? Why are you killing your own kind? Why are you so angry? Remember, my children, all I gave you is nourishment and love. Had you been connected with my spirit, you would have never become so helplessly stressed out.  You still have time. Connect to my spirit, which is your spirit too, and see the same spirit in everything. They are all your brothers and sisters.”

Trees subtly sustains our existence

“My beloved children, my whole body consists of rivers, oceans, mountains and many expressions of life.There is a spirit in everything. Do not think that the tree outside your house is separate from you. The tree inhales what you exhale. And what the tree exhales is what you inhale. Can you see this subtle collaboration and deep love? You are inseparably connected, with the trees, plants, flowers and nature. You are existentially connected to all of them. Why do you isolate yourself from them? Why do you destroy trees? They are part of your own existence. What will you inhale if you break this eternal bond?? What will your children inhale? You are breaking the cycle of existence, my beloved children, please do not do that.”

“My children, your life is full of glory. You look exactly like your father. He is brilliance. He is the Almighty. He is always truly majestic and never subject to any kind of weaknesses. You are the same. He created the whole universe based on Dharma. Dharma of existence. Just like the trees collaborate with you for providing fresh air, and the lions help maintain the deer population, all beings contribute towards the smooth running of dharma. Dharma should not be disrupted. It should eternally flow. Dharma is eternal.”

Can we justify all our actions? If not, Beware.

 

History is filled with Human Atrocities

“Dharma is the expression of your father. We all exist in that. We have no life apart from that. Have you seen any lion killing for pleasure? Have you seen any bird sitting in the nest, lazy and procrastinating, when the day breaks? Have you seen the sun taking leave even for a day, since centuries? Have you seen any change in the system of life and death? Everything born must die. Killing to satisfy senses, anger, hatred or lust. This is against dharma. This will bring your downfall. When you inflict pain on others, similar pain will haunt your existence too. This is also part of dharma.

Your own people explained the theory of relativity. This is also an aspect of that. May your minds obsessed with science understand it that way. My children, beware, science should not make you insensitive. I have reasons to believe that it does. How many beings are you torturing and killing in your laboratories!!! It’s a shame, my children. Torture and killing of any other being amounts to accumulation of agonizing karma. Karma is the chain that makes you take physical bodies again and again. This will make you suffer similar pains and agony. Your sufferings of this life, has roots into similar acts by you, on others, in other lives. But, if nature used you to carry out its dharma, you will not suffer karma due to that. That means, when you walk, without your knowledge, if some ants die, it is part of their destiny and not your conscious doing. It will then be a different equation, if you add guilt to your thoughtless action or unmindful action. Then, you will suffer karmic undoing through suffering. If nature makes you an instrument, which it often does, you are only doing your dharma and never karma. So, do not worry about that. Karma is not punishment oriented. It is accountability oriented. You are accountable for all your deeds, including all thoughts, words and actions. Period. ”

Rivers Represents the Flow of Life

“My beloveds, a major portion of your body contains water. Water is sacred. All elements are sacred, because they have formed out of your father, the Lord Almighty. Everything is made out of pure spirit. You need to connect to the spirit behind all materials. So, respect water. Save water. Preserve water. Be sensitive towards water. You need good water to stay healthy. Your ancestors were able to drink water from any river and stay healthy. River water was so healthy at one time. Can you do the same? You have contaminated the rivers of the world. You have contaminated the oceans too. You will fall sick if you drink water from your neighboring river. My beloved children, your greed for profits and unconscious living has brought much harm onto yourself. You are existentially connected to the water and those rivers. You are deeply related. Why did you poison and contaminate them? You are deeply related to the flowing rivers. Your life is also flowing. Time is flowing, existence is flowing. Look at the rivers and learn to flow without attachments, unconditionally. Rivers have lots to teach you, the most important of all is its very nature of being unconditional, the very nature of your father.”

Tat Twam asi - Thou Art That

“My children, you are only visitors here. You will depart one day. You cannot own anything here. There is only one owner – the Lord Almighty. Everything belongs to Him. Everything is formed out of Him and everything will dissolve back to Him. He could withdraw this whole drama anytime he feels like. By the way,  why are YOU agitated? Why are you resisting everything? Since you do not know the whole story of any existence, let alone yours, why are you so determined to change things? What can you change, when you do not know the reason of any event in your life?? If you feel you are all powerful, tell me – Can you change your heart beat? Can you change your blood circulation – or maybe reverse it for a change? Can you stop breathing? Can you stop eating? Drinking water? What can you change? Only one thing – your inner world. You can choose to fill your inner world with goodness and pure love instead of anger, hatred, revenge and venom. That will also make your outside world look more beautiful and positive. This is the least you can do for yourself.”

“Understand that your father gave you the power to understand your true

Express Your Self. Express Love

nature and also to understand Him. No other being walking on my body has that capacity. Why are you then behaving like the lesser beings? You should be behaving like your father, who is infinitely kind and compassionate. You should be expressing His nature, complete love and compassion, without discrimination. He is wholesome. He is ever complete. You divided and made things look seemingly micro. He is absolute and infinite. You made yourself look, seem and feel finite. Your father is always surprised at your choosing limitedness. He never interferes, you see. He leaves you to live your life.  He has faith in you and believes that one day, you will re assume your unlimited-ness and come back to Him. He is waiting. He is happy and thrilled when you express His nature of selfless compassion and unconditional love. He is sad when you express negativity, anger, hatred and silly emotions of an average terrestrial being. Keep Him happy, express pure LOVE. You will see the difference happening in yourself.”

We Create our Destiny

“My children, We have a common destiny. My destiny is linked with yours and yours with mine. We are not separate from each other. When you contaminate the same source that you came from, reactions are inevitable. This is not my choice. This is my destiny. Yours too. This is natural with my sickness. All the calamities that you see on my surface are inevitable, because, I am tired. I am sick. Your mother has become seriously ill. My body is reacting to the poisons that has been pumped into me since years. Your advancement has been at the cost of my health. Are you aware of that? It is true. All your fleeting prosperity and profits have been at the cost of my health. When I sigh or pant in pain, storms and floods are your experience. How can I help it? I am helpless, my children.You are born out of me. You are myself. I have given birth to millions of bodies over millions of years. Now, I am tired.  It is time for me to be re born. Those of you who will connect to my spirit, which is the spirit of existence, will survive the change. Those of you still immersed in senses, mind and intellect; fleeting glories, competition with one another and material profits, will wake up to uneasy realities sooner or later. Never tell me that I did not warn you. Save yourself while you can.”

“Changes are always not negative. They are inevitable. Changes mean evolution. Nothing ever stays the same in your father’s

Time Means Change

creation. Dynamism is the core of creation. It never stayed the same in the past and will never stay the same in the future too. Otherwise, you will not be here. You will not be here without the evolution and change. Karma cannot take place at all.”

“My children, treat all things as spirit. All are made out of that. Realize that all are one spirit. Me – the earth, plants and trees, water, air, the sun, moon and the stars, birds and animals, you – all came out of one spirit. All one spirit. Do not worry about death. Death is not the end. There is no end. Life is an evolution. Constant evolution. It never stops. There is no need to worry. So, my children, be kind to yourself, and to others around you. My blessings are always with you. I love you and always loved you, even when you never understood and felt my spirit. How can a mother not love her own children? I have always been waiting for you to know and understand the ultimate truth of existence. I do not have much life left now. Before I withdraw, I had to tell you this. I Love all my children alike. I have no favorites. Your father also loves all His creations alike. Close your eyes and feel us. You will understand this truth. I love YOU.”
