Invitation of this moment

When your seeing is penetrated and kind of focused, is it wrong or bad? No, neither it is bad nor wrong. It has a utility, it is useful in a certain manner, and when you need to see the Truth of life you cannot afford to be focused, your seeing has to be completely relaxed. That is what is called effortless and that’s why it has to be free from intention, and it’s a very difficult thing to do. Like it’s almost impossible to make your intention separate, free from your seeing, because all the capacity of seeing is already serving different intentions and different beings, because the capacity of seeing is all there is. There is no other energy or power or anything like this.

So, sometimes the invitation of this moment can be very helpful to discover something which we are not aware of. Like ‘Oh, this kind of seeing is also possible actually?’ And the intention creates sort of a specific seeing which becomes like your field of view, like a fixed field of view and obviously there are fixed items in the view and so on, and that is what we call ‘my life’ and ‘I’ becomes the owner of this life.

This ‘I’ remains like a blind spot, like a dark space under the lamp. And it’s not a Truth, it’s not a Truth. You the Seer is the Truth, what you are seeing is also true, but not this much only. When you relax in your Self without any intention to see anything, then you see the whole of the whole of it. When you see the whole of it then only you see the Truth. Truth cannot be seen in parts. What is seen in parts is what is called the world, or when it is more specific then ‘my world, my life’.

What is going on? (Right Now)?

The very effort of trying to be free keeps you in that loop where your seeing is accompanied by an intention and because of that it becomes impure and now you cannot See what is the case. You see what you want to see actually. That’s why our seeing is not only seeing what is there, but also it is projecting in some way what we want to see. That is why (for) a free being (it) is necessary to see the Truth.

How you will be free? That’s the biggest question actually. By understanding also, by listening what I’m sharing right now, if it resonates in you, things start changing in you, like an understanding kind of starts correcting by itself inside you, that ‘It’s true, at least few minutes a day I must have some free time to Just See, even outside also it’s alright’, but if possible, (then) more importantly inside.

‘Just what is going on really?’ Maybe you can say here you have an intention that you want to know. But to know is – intention to know without any outcome, separate from knowing. It is not really that intention which I’m talking about, or at least it’s not that heavy as to fully, totally influence your seeing and, pollute your view. So it is a very good point to begin with – Just to See, to Know, see to See, you know what I mean, that what is going on? (Right Now)?

This moment, Right Now is that place

I want to tell all of you, that if you get some peace inside you, which is not caused by anything, don’t move from there. As long as you can stay there stay there, like this. This is that this moment right now is that place, that dimension of peace. If you are touched by what is happening right now just stay here. Forget about journey now, forget about defining it now, forget about what you see and what you do not right now. Live it, drink it, it is to drink, not to itemize, no? Drink it. This is home. This is home.

When the Soul is Not Relaxed

There are different subtle – subtleties of the identity or entity you can say inside us, not all of them are ego identity, but still there is some identity, some entity inside like a form, very subtle, not ego, not called ego-mind but still there is some sense of existence, which is necessary, which is like the highest position of the soul you can say, and yet the soul is not relaxed.

So what I am saying is that it is perfect to see and to confirm that I can see this, but also when the sweetness of life is inviting you right now then it is also sometimes nice to take the invitation and let go, so that you can see what is effortless and you can also notice the effortless seeing which is present. That’s why I say – just seeing is what is necessary. When you ‘Just See’ you don’t say that even this can be seen. There is no ‘even’ here, there is no list here. What can be seen is all there is. There is no comparison, there is no past, there is no journey, there is no completion or incompletion, perfection or imperfection, so it’s not something perfecting itself, it is just the way it is right now.

It is more like an invitation to sink in or slip into your effortless seeing which is the Being, the Joy, the Sweetness, the Celebration. It’s just one package in which everything comes, which is right now here and undivided. If you catch one you get all (smiles).

When our own existence becomes a burden

The full Truth is known when our own existence becomes a burden, when our existence becomes a burden like ‘I can see everything and yet I’m not happy’, you know like this, ‘Like I’m not effortless, I’m not relaxed and (Rajee exhales) (not) in Heaven’. Then we dissolve, then we pray for dissolution. Then the capacity of pure seeing evolves in itself in such a way at some point that it kind of becomes clear to it that my very existence is the only problem, otherwise all is Truth.

Simply See – without Intention

All the forms of seeing are generally attached to some intention, to some desire. And if somehow we can achieve this what I call simple seeing or just seeing – Just Seeing – if you can kind of start, if you learn how to rest in this free space or state of you, from where you can see without any intention, then the Truth of life is revealed actually. The Truth of body, Truth of mind, Truth of relations, Truth of sense of identity, Truth of experiencing – everything.

Whenever you see anything inside you, you have some intention to see it, no? Like we want to see, so that we can change it in a certain way and even when we don’t have a kind of explicit desire to change it, still there is some implicit desire that I will keep seeing it and I will become free from it. So still, there is a desire here and so the seeing is not free yet. Only the free seeing, a free look can make you free actually,

Just remember that seeing and intention has to be differentiated. I’m not saying that you remove or separate the intention with the seeing, at the level inside you where it is happening – No. Only see this that my seeing is influenced by or accompanied by intention or originated from intention. And when you can see this, your deeper, more relaxed and free seeing kind of gets activated in you, wakes up in you. This pure seeing, this effortless seeing, this just seeing is that Awareness which is actually, already and always Free.

You Have Come Home (Part 2 of 2)

Your intention is genuine to learn, my intention is genuine to teach and still we will not succeed. Do you see this? So both are genuine parties and still we will not succeed, just because of this. So would it not be better to do this fundamental work first, than to continue believing we are growing, we are growing and we don’t grow. Or believing that we are reaching and we don’t reach? Would it not be better like this? And I want to tell you, if this conceptual framework of mind or communication system can be exposed fully, You Have Come Home. (smiles)

You will not need to use any concepts for communication of Truth between us at least. So it is not that we need to use concepts so strictly to communicate the Truth – for me, to listen from you and for you to listen from me. It is that, you insist, you are holding onto the concept too strongly inside, using them also very strictly and plus we are not synchronizing our meaning also. Then it’s too dangerous. So let us continue using concepts, which is unavoidable but at least synchronize our meanings, Isn’t it like this?

(see Part 1)

Our Communication Protocol (Part 1 of 2)

Are you sure what I mean by witnessing? Do you also mean the same? Would it not be better to discuss about these things first? Would it not be better to test our communication protocol, before we start communicating? Would it not be better to test our email system, let’s say messaging system?

Would it not be common sense to be first of all to come to the ground of reality between me and you, as right now when we are together like this as a teacher-student that you also understand, you also have the same meaning in your mind, your understanding about this concept is same as mine also? Would it not be better? Otherwise, do you imagine how dangerous it is, for us to use concepts?

There was one man, who sent his servant to market buy two bananas. He brings one banana.
He says, “Where is the second banana?”
He says, “It’s here.”
He says, ”Listen, I am asking you, where is the second banana?”.
He says, “It’s here”.
”Are you crazy? Do you not understand, what do you mean, what I mean by second?”
He said, ”I do fully understand.”
He said, ”Then where is the second banana?”
He says, “It’s here.”
He says, “Oh OK”. Then he kind of stops and thinks again, “OK, where is the first banana?”
He says, ”I ate it.”
He says, ”How?”
He peels it off and eats the second banana, “Like this.”

Do you see the risk of using concept; second banana. And we will continue talking like this.

(see Part 2)

Affected by Negativity

Questioner: There is sort of just like a negative emotional state. I am unaffected by this state, and yet there’s a feeling that I am affected by the state and it sort of needs to be gone.

Rajee: It is a very valuable time, when you are affected by anything, so don’t miss this opportunity, don’t try to fix things quickly. If you try to fix things quickly here, particularly when you are having a negative experience, you are going to miss an opportunity which can actually wake you up to your Self beyond this whole game of experiencing, experience and experiencer to your true true witnessing position.

Try to understand one thing that what is right now affected by this negativity is that portion of consciousness which will be anyway affected by the movement of consciousness, so that is why it is possible for you to experience positivity after some time or you can do something about it and it will become positive. So you can, actually there is a possibility here, when you are feeling a negativity you can feel positivity by doing something. But it will not make you free from this field where you experience negativity, so after positivity you will again feel negativity and then afterward you will have to bring it back to positivity again and then again it will turn into… it’s like a pendulum.

So what is being affected by the negativity right now is not really the consciousness which is playing in the form of waves of life; It is your attachment, attachment of the Seer with this changeful which is suffering actually, which is demanding that it should not be like this. And this is why it is so invaluable to utilize this experience when you are feeling any negativity, to be very, very crystal clear, like
What is my relation with it?
What is my objection from this negativity?
Why I want to reject this negativity right now?

If you can be very, like feel, like feeling more, seeing more neutrally, like how exactly I am affected by this negativity, then you can actually discover That which is affected and That which is not affected both, this is what I call simply seeing. You just Simply See.

Expectations and the Being

The purpose of this meeting is not really to entertain. It is to meet.

These meetings are not to facilitate you achieve what you want to achieve. Although on the face of it, superficially, it feels like this. But it is to help you wake up – wake up from the bondage to time. Bondage to time is bondage to suffering. Time is suffering, because time brings change. So you can never experience stability. And if you also are in this mode of expecting stability in the field of time, that is how you will suffer. So time is changing, everything is changing in time. You enjoy by seeing the nature of things that OK everything is changing. Then no problem then you cannot suffer from time. So what suffers from time then? Our misunderstanding about how things are and that brings expectations. I am not saying wrong expectations, I am saying expectations.

The very effort, the very attitude of expectation is wrong. The Being does not expect anything. Being that you are does not expect anything. It just is. And it feels so excited about how life unfolds in front of it. It comes from the unknown womb of the being, your own womb and unfolds in this emptiness, in this spaciousness. And the way it unfolds the Being feels very excited because it is new to it. Being itself does not know this, how it will unfold, which way it will go, and it doesn’t want to know also because why it should know? It will spoil the whole joy of the game. But at certain point it becomes clear to the Being that all that can happen is nothing but a wave, a wave on the ocean. And how does it matter? How does it matter what form of the wave? What intensity? What speed? What is the life, how long it will live? How does it matter? Then the Being has started becoming restful, in itself.
