You and Mind

You are the very life energy, you have been living in the mind and it has created a reality in it also and that’s what now you feel – it is something separate from you and can attack you. It can attack you if you fight with it, because now you will taste duality here, You and Mind. If you don’t fight with it, you only go in your heart, and if mind somehow gets confused at some point, that ‘Why I should explore the heart?’, that much you have to do – talk, think, discuss, and when mind has come into the state, where it is seen clearly, the value of exploration into the heart, that is more than sufficient.

No need to clean your mind, no need to correct anything in the mind at all, because you will be in the mind state, trying to correct mind state. It doesn’t work, it has not worked. I have myself tried, and I have seen so many Seekers of Truth, for decades actually. It doesn’t work that way.

The power of the heart is the only power which can pull the mind into itself, suck the mind into itself. Mind cannot force itself to surrender to the heart, unless it is seen that there is nothing left in the mind, or what mind can produce, but then what is there that you can experience and is not produced by the mind? In the life, everything, hundred percent things, hundred percent of the life experiences are produced by the mind state only.

Turn your attention inside, Explore what is inside you

Your eternal peace and eternal joy is in You who is searching for it, not where you are searching, not the journey that you are completing. That is just a way to avoid meeting your Self inside your Self, it was necessary for you to have enough consciousness, sensitivity so you can sense your Self beyond body-mind, but the purpose has been served already, that evolution, growth has happened already. Now there is no need to put condition that, ‘I am not yet ready to wake up’, have you explored inside yourself? I want to tell you, it is as easy as just turning your attention inside, exploring what is inside you.

The reality for you is only what remains, the rest is just a play

Running here and there is mind. World, me and you, being Where You Are, Not moving is the way to discover the deeper Truth of life, the deeper, the real Doer of life who is doing everything. No, It’s not philosophical. It’s a Simple Truth. So what happens to someone who starts seeing the Truth of life, is not that you don’t feel any sense of doer. No. Sense of doer is not like a sin or bad thing, it is the very effect of doings in this body-mind level that you feel ‘I am doing it’. But there is no belief in that, there is no reality left for, in that. The reality for you is only what remains, what does not change, what does not move, that is the only reality you have, the rest is just a play, happening in so many ways. You become a doer and then this unbecoming also happens after this doer, by itself. By itself it’s happening. Speaking is happening, thinking is happening, constructs happens, even resistance happens to what is happening inside you. Resistance also happens. You feel something and you don’t want to feel also, and you let everything be the way it is, it’s alright. None of your business, none of your business. Or if you feel it is your business, Find out Who are you?

Learn this art to not fight or resist to what is being given to you

If you want to go all the way inside your Self, to the very core of Life and to the home of God, then be where you are right now. Learn this art to be where you are. Learn this art to not fight or resist to what is being given to you, what is being known by you and what is being seen by you, inside you, because this is what is going to lead you to go all the way. Because what is bondage if not an unlived desire? When it is unlived desire of you, body or mind, it cannot survive generally the time so much, so it will be mostly kind of suppressed or hidden, packaged, for the next life maybe. But when it is desire of life, then you will keep holding like this here, until you see what you, what life wants to show you right now.
So be where you are, see what life is showing you, inside you, in this spiritual context I am saying only, not in the practical life. Feel what life is giving you, eat what life is feeding you. This is the way of, this is the surrender to life, that I am knowing what, this is the fastest possible way, this is the organic way of life, but more like a existential way beyond nature, manifested existence. Fastest possible way, and effortless and error free and struggle free and stress free. Difficult, very difficult but the most accurate you can say, this is the most, this is like finest possible way of aligning yourself to God, that ‘I’m happy to eat what is served today to me, I will eat it fully’, so show your creativity there and your totality there, not in going all the way.

True Knowing

Somebody asked one Zen Master that ‘What is your great secret of being the way you are, what you are, the knowledge that you have?’ He says, ‘When I feel hungry I eat, when I get tired, I sleep. This is my secret.’ Meaning, no resistance to what is happening and no ideas imposed on what is seen or understood, the way it is understood. Truth has to be understood the way life wants you to understand, not what the way you think you should understand it, and the way you think you should understand is the way to appreciate and avoid the True knowing. True knowing is happening by itself, but we don’t appreciate the True knowing, we evaluate whether it fits in my box of valuable knowing or not. (smiles) That’s how we are missing waking up and we continue growing spiritually. Is it not like this?

Courage to encounter ‘This’

The biggest courage one needs or one can have is to encounter ‘This’. When one can appreciate being what one is, where you are, the way you are, immediately the Truth of life start revealing itself. But when we are in the ego state we have a very strong tendency to hold, to conclude very quickly and that is what creates confusion inside us, that we every day try to conclude things, that ‘OK, I saw the Truth today’. No, you did not give enough space and time for it to bring you to a right state from where you feel that ‘I see the Truth’ and still you don’t lose it. Otherwise we see the Truth, we lose it, we see the Truth, we lose it, and we conclude it in so many different ways, again and again, you know what I mean? So don’t be in a hurry to conclude if you really want to know the Truth. Just learn how to come back here again and again, and just stay here. So many apparent ugliness of yourself and others might be seen, but don’t believe that. It’s not True. You have just started seeing the Truth, but you have not seen enough to see the beauty of life and the wisdom of God yet. So don’t be in a hurry. Continue, continue. This is what is called Satsang, a supporting environment where you are just brought gently back to where you are really, your attention, your energies are just brought back to where you are. And this does the whole miracle of waking up and seeing the Truth and everything like this. There is no other magic than just being where you are, and seeing what you see and feeling what you feel.

Ugliness is just a perspective

Questioner: Earlier I would be scared of talking to you Rajee because I thought that Rajee is the other and he’s really going to show me all the ugliness in me and now I just want you to show it.

Rajee: You are giving me a very difficult job actually, because all I see in you is beauty and more beauty and more beauty and more beauty and I feel love and more love and more love and more love(smiles). You are giving me a very difficult thing to do to see ugliness in you. How I would do that? Because ugliness is just a perspective, not a reality, ugliness is just a perspective and resistance created out of that point of view that it should not be so, which multiplies actually. Inside us there is like a circles upon circles upon circles, one circle supporting another circle, and like this. Like, ‘All trees should be green’. Very innocent, apparently very innocent statement and it creates now ugliness in life. Any tree which is not green is ugly, you know what I mean? So how can I help you in removing that ugliness which does not exist? There is naturalness, not ugliness. Things are as they are inside you. I can help you relax in your Self, but don’t ask me to help you see the ugliness which does not exist. Or ask me to help you see that there is no ugliness inside you There is only divinity in different forms, in different ways. All of it actually, all of it is divine, the whole of you is divine, not just the presence or the stillness.
