Love Kills

Among the four aspects of who you are — your body, mind, emotion and energy — people generally know emotion as the strongest force within them. This is the reason why emotion is widely used in the religious and spiritual context, and love in particular, because it creates a conducive atmosphere around you. Let us look at it technically — not in terms of good or bad, right or wrong.
Love essentially means somebody else has become far more important to you than yourself. That may be distressing — your existence is threatened. The moment you say “I love you” to somebody, you will lose all your freedom, you will lose everything that you have. You can no longer do what you want in your life; there are innumerable problems. But at the same time, it drags you in. It is a sweet poison, a very sugary poison. It is self-annihilating.
If you do not annihilate yourself, you will never know love. Some part of you must die. That something else or somebody else has to occupy that space within you that was you all this time. If you do not let this happen, there is no love, only calculation.

We have formed a variety of relationships in our lives — family, marital, business, social — a variety of relationships to serve different needs. I am not saying there is no expression of love in these relationships. There is. It should be there in everything that you do — every action can be conducted lovingly. When we are talking about love as a spiritual process, we are talking about love as a process of self-annihilation. But when we use the word “annihilation” it looks like a negative word.

When there is no love, people are rigid. But when you really love somebody, you are willing to surrender everything — your personality, your likes, your dislikes. Suddenly, when you fall in love, you are willing to twist yourself any way you need to, which is a fantastic spiritual process because you are becoming flexible, you could even attempt yoga. Love is definitely self-annihilating; that is the most beautiful part of it.
When we say “Shiva is a destroyer,” we are saying he is a compulsive lover. He destroys you; if he does not destroy you, it is not a genuine love affair. When we say “destroy you,” it does not mean destroy your home or your business or your body. When what you call “myself” is your rigid personality, and it is destroyed in the process of loving, that is self-annihilation.
Your ways of thinking and feeling, your likes and dislikes, your philosophies and ideologies melt down when you fall in love. That must happen to you; do not wait for another human being to come and do it. Just make it happen for yourself. You do not even need anybody to love. You can just love anything. If you simply, deeply create an unreasonable sense of love toward something, you will see self-annihilation will naturally happen.
Generally, what society calls “love” is a mutual benefit scheme. “You give me this, I will give you that, but if you don’t give me this, I will not give you that.” It is an arrangement. There is still some sweetness in this — mutually, both people are benefited, but it is conditional. If you get very unreasonable as to what you want from it, the other person will slowly back off. Even in your love affairs you have to be reasonable.
If you love a man, woman, child or whomever, it is not just you who gets entangled in the process of loving; the other person also gets entangled. Once the entanglement is mutual, you cannot release yourself until you grow out of it. But devotion is love unreasonable. There is no reason — it is one-sided madness. That is the beauty of loving the Divine, because you do not have to have a relationship — you can just love.
The idea of looking up and loving Krishna or Jesus is because you need not have any fear of entanglement from the other side. You love as much as you want; when you grow out of it, there is no resistance from the other side. That is the beauty of devotion. It is a very good preparation for one to become meditative. Without some sense of love in you, without some sense of self-annihilation, you cannot meditate. Some part of you has to be pulled down for you to become meditative. If you pull down the whole of what you call “myself,” you will become absolutely still and transcendent.

Guru Pooja

Sadhguru explains how Guru Pooja is a process of making yourself choiceless, so that the divine also has no choice but to be with you.


Sadhguru: Guru Pooja is not about offering a flower, a fruit, and a coconut – this is a subtle process to create an invitation to the Divine. There is a difference between meditation and a ritual. Meditation is all your own stuff – it is exclusive. But if we actively participate in a ritual, everyone can be in the same space and enjoy the same thing. If performed properly, a ritual is a vibrant and fabulous tool that supports everyone. A ritual needs integrity, involvement, and inclusiveness. If there is no integrity and inclusiveness in the atmosphere, people can misuse it in so many different ways. So there is a serious risk because generally in the society, there is a lack of integrity and inclusiveness.
Guru Pooja is a tool, a certain method. It is not a thanksgiving ceremony. Yes, there is a sense of gratitude in it, but that is not what it is all about. It is a way of creating a certain sacred energy geometry which will naturally draw certain forces to it. You must do the Guru Pooja in such a way that no matter where I am, I must come. I should not have a choice. This is only possible if you make yourself choiceless.
There is a very beautiful story in the Mahabharat. On a certain day, Krishna was having lunch. Rukmini, his wife, was serving him. Krishna was a man who had taken on the whole world, so he barely got home. The chance of serving him a meal did not come often, even for his wife. It was a privilege that she cherished and valued. Halfway through his meal, he suddenly got up and left without even washing his hands. She said, “Please, at least finish the meal before you go.” He said, “No, one of my devotees is in trouble. I need to go.” He went till the gate, stood there for a moment, turned back and sat down to continue his meal. Rukmini asked, “What happened to your devotee?” He said, “He was sitting in the forest, chanting my name, when a hungry tiger approached him.” Krishna had seen that this man was totally immersed in the chant, calling Krishna with total involvement, and when the tiger approached, immediately Krishnahad gotten up and left. He continued, “As I went towards the gate, the fool picked up a stone to protect himself, so I’ll let him do his business.” This is the power of choicelessness.
Guru Pooja is a device for you to make yourself utterly choiceless. All these rituals are just that – you give yourself to a process and make yourself completely choiceless. When you are like that, even the Guru does not have a choice. You need to make it in such a way that the Divine does not have a choice about you. It is from this that many yogis said, maybe in different ways, “Shiva has no choice about whether to be my partner or not.” I have a choice to lose him, but he has no choice. You must always keep him like that because what kind of a fool would consider losing the Divine as a choice? Only someone who has just one brain cell would. If you had two brain cells, you would clearly see that losing him as a partner is not really a choice – it would be utter stupidity.

Guru Pooja is such a tool. You must make it in such a way, the invitation is sent in such a way that he has no choice; he has to be there. If you create such power about simple things that you do, then the benefit of sadhana will multiply manifold.

The Meaning of a Guru – The Master’s Role in One’s Life

Question: Sadhguru, you say we should not simply believe anything, but rather experiment with life and see for ourselves. However, it seems, to grow spiritually, tremendous trust in the Guru is needed. So what is the difference between belief and trust?
Sadhguru: Belief springs from your expectation. When you say “I believe you,” you are expecting that I will act according to your rights and wrongs. Suppose I do something which is not within the field of your rights and wrongs, then the first thing that will happen is, you are going to come to me and say, “I believed you, and now you did this.” If your Gurucan be contained within your limitations, then you better not go anywhere near that man because he will be of no help to you. He will solace you, he will comfort you, but this man is bondage. This man is not liberation. Trust is different. Trust is your quality. It is not subject to anything else, it is simply there. When you say “I trust,” it means, “It doesn’t matter what you do, I trust.” That is not falling into the framework of your limitations.
I never asked you to trust me. The very reasons why I never use the word “trust” with people is because it is badly corrupted. If at all anybody here spoke about trust, it is to raise you beyond your own likes and dislikes, your own limitations. The very feeling of “I trust you” raises you beyond this bundle of likes and dislikes. “No matter what you do, I trust you.” If you really want to make use of a Guru’s Presence, you must be willing to allow that Presence to overwhelm you, to overpower you, to destroy you in one way. At least for those few moments that you are with him, you should no longer be yourself. What you consider yourself to be, should be absent in his Presence.

Pulling the walls down

When people spoke about trust, what they meant was that you allow someone else to enter you. If you have to allow someone else to enter you,you have to become vulnerable. Once he enters you, you are subject to anything. The very reason why you have built walls is, somewhere when you made yourself vulnerable, someone did something which was not within your expectations. So you got terrified and built walls around yourself. Now, when you say, “I trust you,” you are willing to pull that wall down, which means that the other person does not have to live within the framework of your expectations. So one aspect is the Presence of the Guru, the quality of who he is, does things to you. Another aspect is, the moment you create that kind of situation that you are not bothered about what is going to happen to you, that itself is transformation.
The time frame that I have with people is limited. So I am making myself available only as a Presence, not as a person. As a person, I am just keeping a certain face – in many ways within the framework of your expectations. If I have to use my person also as a device, then it needs much more trust, and maybe more time. People who are with me for longer periods of time find me an impossible person, which I am not with you.

A conscious concoction

Right now, this personality that you call “myself” is in some ways an accident, depending upon what kind of situations you have been exposed to. Your personality is constantly evolving, beaten around by life. Whichever way life beats you, you will become that kind of shape and form. Your personality is constantly being constructed by external situations. The one whom you call as Guru is not a person. The whole process of self-realization means someone has transcended his personality and then he carefully crafts a personality as it is necessary for the kind of role that he wants to play.
In a limited way, on the surface, you too are building your personality to suit your activity. A being who is experiencing himself beyond limitations does it in a very deep way. He structures every aspect of his life as it is necessary for the role that he has chosen to play. It is a conscious construction. When it is a conscious construction, it is just a device, it is not bondage anymore. Any moment, he can just pull it down. Even now, the way I operate as a person is very different in different places. It may be shocking for you if you see me in other kinds of situations. Because you have fallen into the comfort of knowing this kind of person, when you see another kind of person, you are unable to handle it.
A Guru creates his personality in such a way that people don’t know whether to love it or to hate it. He carefully crafts a personality where one moment you think, “Yeah, I’m really in love with this man.” Next moment, you may feel completely different about him. And both of these emotions are not allowed to cross certain lines. Within those lines, you are constantly being thrashed around so that after some time you will know, this is not a person. This is not a human being. Either he is a devil or he must be Divine.

Taking the jump

That which is not in your experience cannot be taught to you intellectually. To take a person from one dimension of experience to another dimension of experience, you need a device which is of a higher level of intensity and energy. That device is what we call as Guru. The Guru-shishya relationship is on an energy basis. A Guru is touching you in a dimension where no one else can touch you. There are many ways to move your energies to Ajna. But from Ajna to Sahasrar, there is no particular way to do anything. It is just a jump. It is because of this that the Guru-shishya relationship has been held as the most sacred relationship in this culture. If you have to take this jump, you need deep trust – otherwise, it is not possible.

Is My Mind Really Against Me?

Question
Is our mind really against us all the time and if it is, then why is it so?
Answer
Now it is because of your mind you heard of a word called spirituality. Yes? It is because of your mind that you are able to understand what I am talking to you right now. So someone who is your friend, don’t make an enemy out of him. Please look at your life and tell me, is your mind your friend or enemy? You are who you are only because of your mind, isn’t it so? You made a mess out of yourself, that’s up to you. If you want to be without it, it’s very simple; you just need a big knock on your head. The mind is not the problem. You don’t know how to handle it, that’s the problem. So don’t talk about the mind, just look at the inadequacy with which you are trying to handle it. Without any grasp or understanding over something, if you try to handle it, then it will become a mess.
Right now for example, growing rice, do you think it’s a big feat? A simple farmer is growing it. I’ll give you 100 grams of rice grains, the necessary land and everything that you need. You grow one acre of rice paddy and give it to me, you will see what a mess you will be. Not because growing rice is such a big thing, but because you don’t understand a damn thing about it, that’s why it is so difficult. Similarly, keeping the mind empty like space is not a difficult thing, it’s the easiest thing. But you don’t understand a damn thing about it, so it is so difficult. Life doesn’t work like that. If you want to have the capability of handling something well, you have to have a complete grasp of what it is. Otherwise just by accident a few times you may manage. Every time it won’t work.
One day in a very fundamentalist church, the pastor was going at the Sunday school kids before the actual service. You know, they’re all high energy people, so he was really getting at them. Then he found the children were looking a little downcast, so he thought he will make it a little more interesting for them by telling them a riddle. So he said, “Now I’m going to give you a riddle. What gathers nuts for the winter, climbs up trees, hops around and has a furry tail?” One little girl raised her hand. “Okay, tell me what it is.” She said, “I know the answer is Jesus, but for me it sounds like a squirrel.” Okay? So that’s the kind of stuff you’ve received till now. Most of the education you received is in this context. What is right and wrong, what is okay and not okay, what is God and devil, everything is in this context, not from your own experience of life.
So how can you stop this mind? You have gotten yourself identified with things that you are not. The moment you identify yourself with something that you are not, the mind will go on nonstop. Suppose you ate lots of oily food, then you will get gas. Now you try to hold it, you cannot. If you are eating the right food, you don’t have to hold anything, the body is fine. The same with your mind – you are wrongly identified with things that you are not. Once you are wrongly identified, you cannot stop the mind.
If you disidentify with everything that you are not, you will see the mind will just be blank and empty. If you want to use it, you can use it; otherwise it will simply be empty. That’s how it should be, it has no other business to be any other way. But right now, you have identified yourself with so many things that you are not. Just see how many things you are identified with, starting from your physical body. So many things you are identified with and you are trying to stop your mind, trying to meditate – it won’t work. Either you dismantle your identifications or life will do it to you. Whatever you identify yourself with, when death confronts you, it all drops, isn’t it? So if you don’t learn any other way, death will come and teach you that this is not it. If you have any sense, you learn right now that this is not it. If you don’t learn now, death will come and knock you out of your identifications.
So you need to disidentify yourself. Every day just spend 10 minutes in the morning and see what are all the things that you are identified with, which is actually not you. You will be surprised to see in how many ridiculous ways and with how many ridiculous things you are identified. Just mentally break all the things around you in your house and see, you will know all the things you are identified with. Little things, big things, your own house, your family, everything, mentally just break them and see. All the things that hurt you, you are identified with them obviously. Once you are identified with something that you are not, the mind is an express train that you can’t stop. Do what you want, it won’t stop. So you put the mind on full steam and you want to apply brakes – it doesn’t work like that. You must take your leg off the throttle first, before you brake any vehicle.

THE DREAM

Life is a dream and waking up to the reality of that is your soul purpose. Afterwards unfold the petals of the flower that is you and liberation is attained.

01_buddha-lotus1
BUDDHA LOTUS

Possibly even enlightenment , although I still do not know what this word means.

Everything, the universe in completion lies here in this moment. in the freedom from thought and the knowledge that this moment is all that there is. The experiential realisation of this ends suffering: Mind free of the thought train; body free of the pain train. You stand motionless and expansive at the same time in the moment.

Lesson #166 & The 21st Century Cowboy


trophy2Sub-personalities (subs), split off from the main soul-infused personality of the Soul, have appeared in many different guises over many lifetimes. Here we see a reinvention of the Cowboy sub-personality – a 21st Century Cowboy – The Bike Racer. He swapped his faithful horse for some Japanese metal; his shining spurs for carbon-titanium strengthened motorcycle boots.

He seems a sorry figure; weary, worn, in threadbare leathers, and with feet that bleed a little from the hard boots he wears. No one but has identified with him, for everyone who comes here has pursued the path he follows, and has felt defeat and hopelessness as he is feeling them. Yet is he really tragic, when you see that he is following the way he chose, and need but realize Who walks with him and open up his treasures to be free?
Adulterated from ACiM Lesson #166 ¶ 6

The whole Lesson 166 is describing sub-personalities that make up the human condition. In this case – The 21st Century Cowboy – Just one facet of the Selfish Competitive Ego.

This is your chosen self, the one you made as a replacement for reality. This is the self you savagely defend against all reason, every evidence, and all the witnesses with proof to show this is not you. You heed them not. You race around and around circuits, with eyes cast only on the finishing line, lest you might catch a glimpse of truth, and be released from self-deception and set free.
Adulterated from ACiM Lesson #166 ¶ 7

Indeed, the Cowboy takes off into the sunset and goes it alone. His heart is closed and it has to be in order to live this existence, and not feel bad about it. He’s emotionally dead; a cold hearted rider whose only solace is a draw on a cigarette and not unlike the St George’s Cross, a trophy to display on a good day.

He is the horizontal branch of a tree if you like, with his own agenda, which is any activity that maintains his separation from the Will of God. The Bike Racer is one such manifestation of a sub-personality; he is one such branch of a tree.

The main soul-infused personality, the main trunk of the tree, has accepted Atonement for himself. Over the ages he has healed the ‘Negative Karmic Mass’ engendered by the Cowboy sub. The talents of The Cowboy have been purified of all their trauma, and are now ready to be used by God’s Son as He goes upon his way, for He knows in his bones that he is never ALONE, but that He is ALL-ONE.

Using the talents of the Cowboy, the Son Of God journey’s happily alone and without a place called home, to distant lands if need be. Where opportunity arises, he helps his Brother on the wayside; he helps His Brother who goes around and around in circles, caught in a loop – somewhere in his mind.

The Tumbleweed Tourist

The tourist likes to visit a place but never settle down. The tourist likes people to know he’s been to see Swami So-and-so-ananda, and oh… not forgetting that Great Master of the Tao last year. The tourist pays a visit; makes a superficial encounter; laughs and jokes with others passing through; always has some spiritual advice to give. Never is the tourist himself tied down.

The element of air is dominant in this person, as he blows like tumbleweed from one Guru to the next; from one teaching to the next.

It’s the tourist that, finally after 15 years of wandering, asks a Master, “Why am I still so unhappy after all these years of seeking? I don’t feel I’ve made any progress at all!”.

It’s a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best,

“To find water, don’t dig 10 holes 1 meter deep. Dig one hole 10m deep.”

The Spiritual Tourist is the product of fear. What covers up fear? Masks cover up fear, sub-personalities cover up fear. Gurdjieff said that a man is unaware of his biggest blockages. That which really holds a man back, is unbeknown to him. From the movie ‘Revolver’ by Guy Ritchie and all about sub personalities,

“The greatest enemy will hide in the last place you will ever look”

Our true enemy is in us – it is our ego. That voice that always tells us that we are important, that gives us our pride, that tells us not to give, but only to take, that creates our aggression, that wants to be in control, that creates all the negative feelings and thoughts, that decides Swami So-and-so-ananda is too big for his boots, says some hurtful things, and anyway, have you heard Swami A-n-other-ananda is in town. He’s all the rage. I must go and see him! Oh! I can’t wait!

… and so it goes, the tourist keeps on missing; at best only scratching the surface of his being.

The Black Star

The Star

Due to our uniqueness as individuals, we all have the opportunity to shine and blossom at things only we can do. Whatever that thing is, nobody else can do it. It’s that simple. It’s that amazing.

Jesus Christ was a great Star performer. Wasn’t he just great! Awesome!

The Black Star

The problem arises when the selfish competitive ego wants to shine and excel, but at the expense of others around them and also at the expense of their own health and well-being. This is the Black Star who has a great lust to prove they are better than everybody around them.

Ghengis Khan is reported to have said, “It’s not enough that I succeed. Everyone else must fail.”

Spider-man-comic-book-movies-marvel-venom-600

You might be somebody with a great talent for healing, but if you crave the attention and the limelight, the recognition, the stardom; if you are really determined to prove something – you may well bite off more than you can chew.

Sri Ramana Maharshi openly admitted that trying to heal his Mum was…just too much, thus the cancer, which he said was like ants crawling up and down his arm.

The world never fails to provide gifts with which to learn, and to keep us on track.

So, let us vow to be Happy Healthy Bright Shining Stars! There IS a door with your name on it. Do not sell short of this.

Be Well. Be Happy. Be a Star!
