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.
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?
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.
This being where you are is like a ‘Havan Kund’, like a fireplace, all the paths, all the journeys, all the futures, they burn here, like piece of paper and you discover that Home which you were trying to go, Right Where You Are.
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?
(Excerpts from Focus Group Meeting, Pune)
I have no qualities to claim anymore, no ability, no specialties no wisdom or anything even. I’m so super happy to surrender even the greatest achievement of this life to that Lord which is the only Truth. I am just a shadow or a shadow of His expression only.
