One Vision - One Vibration

Words of Wisdom by Deepak Chopra

 

 

"Learn to get in touch with the innermost essence of your being. This true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless; it is free; it is immune to criticism; it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment."

 

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up"

Deepak Chopra

Bhagavan Sri Ramana used to say that all techniques of meditation and concentration presuppose the retention of the ego/mind. Bhagavan used to joke that employing the ego/mind to overcome the ego/mind is like hiring a thief, who is all dressed up as a policeman, to catch the thief. The policeman will pretend to make herculean efforts to catch the thief, give periodic reports of progress, but will fail each time (since the policeman is the thief!)



The whole thing is hilarious, is it not my friends. We are trying to gain Self-Realization with the effort and power of our mind. Yet, it is the ego/mind that is veiling the Self!



What a wonderful paradox indeed. Are you able to see it clearly?



The attempt to abandon the ego or overcome it, is itself based on egotism. Such forced efforts to discard the mind and transcend the ego end up only reinforcing the nonexistent phantom in our imagination.



What Bhagavan has pointed out is that all spiritual practices ultimately fall short as they presuppose the existence of mind. And with the mind in charge, there are infinite possibilities of experience; all kinds of experiences, including super conscious experiences.



No doubt experiences can be wonderful and joyful as well as painful. And yet where can any experience truly take us? Where can any experience take us other than in our own imagination of what it means to be happy in heaven, nirvana, moksha, singing with angels, or dancing with the gods, etc.



We cannot go anywhere other than where we are. We are always here. We are this present moment. This moment is eternal and infinite. This must be understood. This is Bhagavan’s teaching. Bhagavan’s dying words were, “Where can I go? I am Here.” Even in his last moments Bhagavan was teaching and pointing to the Self. All movement is in our imagination. If we do not move our mind, the outside movement becomes moot. When imagination comes to full stop, Self becomes Self-evident.



To see this, we need Grace. And the wise say that Grace is Always Here. And Self is Grace. And there is nothing but That. It is not possible to see this beauty with our eyes. One must recognize it is as one’s own being.



The True Seeing is only Being.

we can not go deep enough into the mind,with out this sound current,only a sant sat guru who comes from beyond the mind realm can give the inner experience.study the teachings of sant kirpal singh ji,and ajaib singh his successor adepts in the very rare "surat shabd yoga of the celestial sound current.the living waters that guru jesus spoke of,the world has never been with out a living master saint called Word made flesh,it is passed on thru the centuries.if you are looking the saint is walking towards you.dr.ishwar puri living in this country is an adept and capable to give the inner contact.ask 2 questions before excepting one as a master. does he live on his own earnings ?not on the donations of others.what he has to impart is it free?like sunshine and air.this is beyond a belief system we are all inundated with thru the religions who promise liberation on credit after death,excuse me for saying that.only a lit candle can light another candle ,only a living dr. can treat someone.the outer expression of soul which is the same essence as that of god is attention,for most it is extroverted into the outer world of senses and sense pleasures.there are 5 lions garding the doorway to heaven at the single eye center ,thier names are anger,lust,greed attachment ,and the last nail to hammer the ego,unless you become him and he becomes you it can never be nailed down...go to ruhani satsang usa for the theory to prepare for the living master to find you like kirpal found me when he was alive ,he is not to be worshipped and turned into a dieity,like the founders of the religions.life comes from life.when the chela is ready the master appears is an old mystic saying.. the light shines in the darkness and the darkness knows it not: jesus.the darkness is in the forhead ,let thine eye be single and thy whole body shall be full of light:inbetween the 2 flesh eyes there is some else that is seeing that darkness ,the soul ,it can hear the divine music,see inner light leave the body and return ,becoming a resident ot other realms while alive..thank you for reading ,blessed be..joe

the essense of the mystic teachings,is seprating the soul from mind, a great power the only way to control it is ny listening to the music of the spheres,the voice of god,thr creative life principle emenating from the creator,called WORD,TAO,only a mystic adept can make it audiable upon initiation.the real 2nd birthth into the spirit,it is not the spoken word or printed word

This is so true, thank you for posting. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be in that perfect state of bliss that we find in meditation all the time. To put aside the pettines of the earthly plane, where egos can be so fragile . . .  thank goodness when we return home we will of course be back in that perfect state!

Annie Jackson.

It is always here and now. We just have to know it to "be" it and your partner can step up in his own time.

So true

Than you Paula for posting this reminder.

Because we so often get caught on surface appearances and discussions we often forget to look deeper.

But I also found that the ego needs to be acknowledged. So while we may save the day and avoid the argument we still have to listen the little child in our ego self that wants to be heard. Even if we do it in private.
