Achieving Happyness and Bliss: THe Path of a true SIdhha/Buddha

Master and disciple/ CHAPTER 1

“Not the greatest Master can go even one step for his disciple; in himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.” – Temples of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

Most religious and spiritually-minded people tend to follow fanatical religious evangelists/ pastors/preachers, or pseudo-spiritual teachers. These people falsely believe that their teachers are Enlightened, Self-realised or at-one-with God, but they are just imagining it. It is just a mind-projection. The nature of one who has attained perfection and bliss such as an Avatar, Siddha, Buddha or Adept is beyond the comprehension of everyday people. One must be very advanced or an Avatar  oneself in order to understand another Avatar.

You are your own master. While the master and disciple relationship may be comforting and, at certain stages in one’s spiritual development, even helpful in the short term, it is ultimately unproductive for the simple reason that it tends to delegitimize the fact that you are your own master. The master must be found within. Only then will you see it reflected outside of yourself—but by then you won’t need an external master, and any external masters you encounter will be seen as merely a reflection of that inner guidance.

Nowadays, as there are so many spiritual teachers/gurus and books available, it is your ability to discern that is most important. What you need to do is search out your ability to learn from these many different teachers. Your ability to learn that is important, not another’s ability as a teacher.

Many people are conditioned by others to think that one must have a personal “guru” in order to progress along the path of Enlightenment/Self-realisation. These people are most likely involved in a group or cult and just looking for new recruits.

Krishna, Buddha, and many others like them never followed any guru. The first enlightened beings thousands of years ago never had a guru. The same method of discovery is still available to all human beings today. The best guru is meditation/self-transformation/purification. Life itself is your best teacher, guide, book, religion, companion…The truth is that you never stop learning or evolving.

The spiritual mystery is self-revealing. In other words, the further you progress, the more self-evident it becomes where you must yet go.

In these modern times, 99% of all the spiritual teachers are spiritual aspirants at various stages on the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal-Self. As such, there is almost nothing they can do for you. Do not beg from people who are themselves beggars, for they are not established in the reality of Self. Today’s so-called gurus and teachers are pathetic and useless. They don’t practice what they teach. They don’t even know the meaning of what they thoughtlessly babble. Pseudo/Neo-Advatia gurus are completely lost souls. They have fallen below ordinary humanity. They are far below a normal person’s level as far as intelligence and awareness are concerned.

Most people cannot even recognize a true Avatar, so how then can they choose a guru?

You become like the people you choose to follow. So choose wisely.

Remember, true Avatars are very, very RARE.

True Avatars don’t create followers or religion. They create more Avatars. An Avatar who expresses his core self fully and without reservation creates situations in which others can change themselves. It is a great joy to see students advance and become masters themselves.

“What the sage seeks is in himself; what the ordinary man seeks and worship is in others.” – Confucius

“If the guru bends and yields to the whims and fancies of the disciples and is afraid to lose their loyalty or is anxious to win it, then, he is the servant of the disciple, not his master!” – Sai Baba

The masses fear the living Avatars but feel safe after Avatars pass away, and then develop great faith and even create a new religion.

If you are fortunate enough to meet true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts with miraculous abilities (Maha-siddhis), connect with their consciousness. This way, your progress will be faster and you will become like them.

Q&A
Q: Is it true that before a disciple ever chooses a Master, the Master has chosen him already?
A: No. Not literally. Maybe in a few rare cases. Just look around and see how many people are stuck with fanatical religious leaders and false gurus.

“Then I am more religious than you are!” – Albert Einstein to Tagore

These were Einstein’s final words following a conversation on science and spirituality with a pseudo-Advaitin, Rabindranath Tagore. Einstein must have realised that Tagore had fallen below him as far as awareness was concerned. It also supports the argument that Einstein was more spiritual than most religious/spiritual teachers.

Conscience/ CHAPTER 2

“Indeed, it is not intellect, but intuition which advances humanity. Intuition tells man his purpose in this life.” – Albert Einstein

We each have within us a most reliable guidance: our conscience. Reconnect with your intuition and listen closely to your inner voice. Rely upon your own inner conscience. It never misleads. Just trust it and obey it. You know what is right or wrong for you. Your conscience is your guide, not the opinions of others, cultural dictates or even thinking.

“Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.” – Albert Einstein

Come out of the masses/ CHAPTER 3

“The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.” – Albert Einstein

The real you does not belong to a crowd. The real you does not belong to any nation. The real you does not belong to any religion. The real you does not belong to any race. The real you does not belong to any guru or any human being. Belonging restricts you. Belonging is a psychological prison. Belong to the whole Universe so that you can merge with the whole Universe. Only then you are the Universe.

There is only one universal science. There is no such thing as Western science, Eastern science, Indian science, Chinese science, European science, etc. There is only one law of gravity. There is no Eastern gravity, Western gravity, Indian gravity, etc. In the same way, there is only one universal spirituality/religion. Walk alone and discover it for yourself. Discover your immortal self.

Don’t allow this world of modern politics, business, economics and fanatical religions to divide and rule. Don’t let it drag you down with it.

Spiritual people should unite together, but they are more divided than non-spiritual people.

Come out of the masses and enter the narrow path of true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts.

Don’t follow the wider path of the masses. Follow the narrow path of truth.

Walk alone on the narrow path rather than walk with the masses on the wrong, wider path. Walk along the narrow path with truth, love, simplicity, purity and dharma as your guides and companions.

“To me spirituality needs an honest individuality. It does not allow any kind of dependence. It creates a freedom for itself, whatever the cost. It is never in the crowd but alone, because the crowd has never found any truth. The truth has been found only in people’s aloneness.” …Society cannot tolerate individuality, because individuality will not follow like a sheep. Individuality has the quality of the lion; the lion moves alone. The sheep are always in the crowd, hoping that being in the crowd will feel cozy. Being in the crowd one feels more protected, secure. If somebody attacks, there is every possibility in a crowd to save yourself. But alone?—only the lions move alone.” – Osho

Be yourself/ CHAPTER 4

“Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you…Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.” – The Lakota (Native American)

“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)

To be your true self in this world of consumerism and fanatical religions that is constantly trying to make you a sheeple is your greatest achievement.

The free soul is rare. Most people do not listen to their own hearts. Instead, they listen to the head/mind of others. They are looking for themselves in others. They accept the opinions, theories, contradictions, and lies from others. Then they also try to convert the whole world in their own image. After much time and painful experiences, people finally realise that they should have listened to their own hearts.

To be your true self in this world of consumerism and fanatical religions which is doing its best, night and day, to make you a sheeple means to fight the hardest battle you can fight with yourself. It takes self-discipline and self-transformation to be detached from this maya.

“Be authentically true to your own being. Listen only to yourself. Don’t allow anybody to discipline you. Don’t allow anybody to make a slave of you. Don’t allow anybody to condition you…Don’t try to make a mark on the history pages—that is meaningless. And don’t always be concerned with others. By and by learn how to be alone, enjoy solitude that’s what meditation is all about.” – Osho

The mistakes most people make arise from forsaking their own heart and trying to see things from another person’s point of view (mind).

“Conditioning (cultural programming) is something forced from the outside upon you against your will, against your consciousness. It is to destroy you, it is to manipulate you.” – Osho

Being yourself is being your core Self, not the conditioned mind-self. The conditioned mind-self/mind/false ego is not the real you.

You must be absolutely, ruthlessly honest with yourself, about yourself. Growing up and becoming who you really are takes courage and radical self-honesty.

Do what you feel is right. Follow your heart, not people. Don’t let people make your decisions. Be yourself. You will be criticized and attacked anyway.

“Look not for recognition but follow the awakened and set yourself free.” – Buddha

“Even as a solid rock is unshaken by the wind, so are the wise unshaken by praise or blame.” – Buddha

“One who knows himself is never disturbed by what others think about him.” – Buddha

“Countless persons criticize Me. There are many who call Me by all sorts of names. All kinds of vile things are written about Me in newspapers. Thousands of pamphlets are published against Me. I have only one answer to all of them—My Smile!” – Sai Baba

Your life is a diary in which you mean to write your story but instead write someone else’s story.

Your own life is often the life that you lose by living someone else’s life.

Most people live through others’ opinion of themselves—they depend on them. Their thoughts and beliefs are someone else’s. You were your Atman-self (the individual consciousness) when you were a child. Be yourself. If you go by people’s conviction, then you never live. You are only their prisoner. You never experience the joy of being free like a bird. Freedom to be yourself is your greatest treasure—more precious than food, clothing or shelter.

“Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu

Most people wear masks, and the time comes when they cannot remove them without pain and bleeding. People become what they pretend to be and lose themselves. People are so accustomed to disguising themselves to others that in the end they become disguised to themselves.

Define yourself; do not let others define you. There is just one incarnation for each of us. Be yourself. Do not be what others want you to be. You must not allow other people to run your life. Your life is too short. Do not live someone else’s life.

Learn to love yourself for who you are. Have faith in yourself. Be yourself and express your Self fully and truly.

You must be your true self in order to help yourself. Be the best that you can be. Being yourself is the first step toward becoming yourself, to the fullest. The point of true spirituality is to become your true self, to the fullest, not to pattern yourself upon another’s limited standards. Spiritual initiation is a process of becoming the clearest expression of YOUR Self (ultimate self) possible—not the self someone else told you should be, or only a portion of yourself. It will take your whole self to encompass infinity. Nothing less suffices. Only those who go deep to the source discover their immortal self.

The pursuit of true spirituality and the self-transformation that it brings about make you a more complete individual—someone who is completely his or her own self.

Being the highest, clearest expression of your core Being is the greatest miracle that any one of us can perform.

I am not here to please you. I am not your lovey-dovey guru. I am not here for your amusement. I’m not here to live up to your expectations. I just don’t care. Your approval is simply not required. I am just being my core self fully. Don’t Judge me. There’s a reason I do the thing I do, there is a reason I am who I am.

Nature/ CHAPTER 5

“When a man moves away from nature his heart becomes hard.” – Lakota (Native American)

“If nature is your teacher, your soul will awaken.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Civilized people depend too much on man-made printed pages. I turn to the Great Spirit’s book, which is the whole of His creation. You can read a big part of that book if you study nature. You know, if you take all your books, lay them out under the sun, and let the snow and rain and insects work on them for a while, there will be nothing left. But the Great Spirit has provided you and me with an opportunity for study in nature’s university, the forest, the rivers, the mountains, and the animals, which include us.” – Walking Buffalo, Stoney (Native American)

“The wise men know it is better to sit on the banks of a remote mountain stream, than to be an emperor of the whole world.” – Chuang Tzu

“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe—a spirit vastly superior to that of a man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble. In this way the pursuit of science leads to a religious feeling of a special sort which is indeed quite different from the religiosity of someone more naive.” – Albert Einstein

Nature is far more interesting and mysterious than you could ever imagine. Nature is your church, chapel, temple, synagogue and mosque.

“The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth is Nature.” – Temples of Luxor,1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

Everyone and everything is interconnected in this infinite unknowable Universe. Nothing is separate. There is only one universal Being/Self. We are part of nature. Its natural history is our story.

Everything in nature is alive—nothing is dead. Everything in nature is a unique expression of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

Modern/Western society is going astray from nature, viewing nature as separate from spirit/consciousness and therefore disconnecting themselves from the spiritual umbilical cord. Modern society has lost touch with the very root connection to the Earth.

Scientists do believe in God, only they spell it Nature. Scientists do not claim to know everything about the Universe. Science doesn’t (yet) understand the connection between the Universal Consciousness and the physical Universe. The infamous and fallacious double slit experiment doesn’t prove the connection between matter and Brahman/Universal Consciousness.

“If you wish to know the divine, feel the wind on your face and the warm sun on your hand.” – Buddha

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein

“The forces of Nature do all works. But due to delusion of ignorance people assume themselves to be the doer.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita (3.27)

“All plants are our brothers and sisters. They talk to us and if we listen, we can hear them.” – Arapaho (Native American)

“…the beauty of our cousins the trees…” – Carl Sagan

“But nature is always more subtle, more intricate, more elegant than what we are able to imagine.” – Carl Sagan

“Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with blessings of the Great Mystery.” – Chief Luther Standing Bear (Native American)

“Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.” – Francis Bacon

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” – Aristotle

“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers—for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.” – Osho

“Every aspect of Nature reveals a deep mystery and touches our sense of wonder and awe. Those afraid of the Universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.” – Carl Sagan

“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

“I do not think the measure of a civilization is how tall its buildings of concrete are, But rather how well its people have learned to relate to their environment and fellow man.” – Sun Bear of the Chippewa Tribe (Native American)

Switch from a lifestyle of excessive consumerism to a simple lifestyle and enjoy the simple things in nature. Experiencing the purity of the four elements in nature is always exhilarating. Experience the morning walk with the fresh cool breeze, sun rays, the fragrance of flowers, and birds chirping. Experience the joy of a moonlit night. Look at the night sky and feel the awe, wonder, and beauty of the Universe.

“Creation means the expression of the will of God. It is called nature…In spite of doing spiritual practices for many years or for many life times, if people still think of creation and the Creator as two separate entities, they cannot realize their true nature. People should use their intelligence to realize their true nature.” – Sai Baba

The goal of life is to match yourself with the Universal-Self. Raise your consciousness and get into sync with the Universe.

Take a walk in nature to become soothed and healed and to have your conscious awareness in absolute sync with nature.

What is within Nature is also within you. What is within you is also within Nature. Nature holds all the answers. Open your heart and listen.

Nature is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent and universal love. Capturing its essence is not easy. It takes you to mystical realms within yourself.

Study nature with your heart and be close to nature, and you shall find the Divine-Self.

If you understand and love Nature, you will find beauty, awe and wonder everywhere in nature.

Everything in nature is an expression of the Divine/Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. A tree is an expression of Brahman. A human being is an expression of Brahman. The Andromeda Galaxy is an expression of Brahman.

For some people, the word Nature means the same as Eternal Tao/Brahman/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

Nature is therapeutic. Nature rejuvenates our soul. Nature is our medicine. Nature can teach us more than any other human being in this world. Nature is a source of beauty, awe and wonder. Everything in nature has a soul. Everything in this Universe is an expression of the Divine.

Earth, water, fire and air (the four elements) are the best teachers/gurus/ masters and can teach you more than you can ever learn from books.

The One Self/Brahman-Self/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness encompasses all existence (the entire Universe) —past, present and future—simultaneously and eternally. Brahman encompasses both the physical and the non-physical realms simultaneously. The entire infinity of the manifest Universe IS Brahman—it is not the mere shell which houses Brahman. There is no separation between the “body/form” of Brahman and Brahman itself.

“Nature is the vesture of God.” – Sai Baba

“You must see Nature as filled with God, shaped by God, as God.” – Sai Baba

“The whole Universe is suffused with Divinity.” – Sai Baba

“You should revere Nature as Brahman.” – Sai Baba

“Prakrithi (Nature) is in essence Divinity itself, lshaavaasyam idam sarvam: all this is divine.” – Sai Baba

“The nature we have around us and with us is the vesture of God. We have evidence of His Beauty, Goodness, Wisdom and Power, all around us, wherever we turn our eyes. But, the art of recognising Him is strange to us and so, we deny Him, and live on in darkness.” – Sai Baba

Do not believe/ CHAPTER 6

“Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher… Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.” – Hindu Prince Gautama Siddhartha, the founder of Buddhism, 563 – 483 B.C.

“Be a free thinker and don’t accept everything you hear as truth. Be critical and evaluate what you believe in.” – Aristotle

True spirituality is not about “belief.” It’s about direct personal experience gained through practice. It’s not about what anybody else tells you…it’s about what you prove or disprove through your own personal effort.

“There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

You will not find the narrow path by reading books. All the spiritual texts/scriptures are always full of blinds, stumbling blocks, and misleading statements and have important keys left out. Many concepts are given to one thing/not-thing and one concept given to many things. The written/spoken words are ALWAYS only pointers and not an end in themselves.

All the religious/spiritual texts are like the incomplete jigsaw puzzle. When your religion/ spirituality doesn’t make sense to you, it is because there too many pieces of the puzzle are missing. You must put the pieces together through your own self-revelation.

Never be satisfied with blind belief. Use it as a launching point for exploration, but do not use it as your foundation and build yourself upon it. True spirituality is not satisfied with mere belief—it DEMANDS practice and the constant challenging of even our most precious beliefs.

True spiritual initiation is about developing one’s own faculties of perception. It’s not about relying upon what others believe or tell you or what a book says. It’s about exploring, discovering and objectively perceiving for yourself. This does result in the development of personal wisdom, but it is founded upon experiential understanding and experience, not upon book learning.

One needs to make assumptions, but the validity of the assumptions one makes is very critical, so one should seriously consider the justifications for each assumption. Also, one should be willing to change them if they lead to contradictory situations.

If some logical conclusions don’t make sense, one usually must review the basic assumptions.

Anything that contradicts the truth and the ultimate experience of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal-Self should be abandoned.

“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” – Carl Sagan

Most people embrace deeply held political, scientific or religious beliefs. People are creatures of habit and seek consistency in their thoughts, beliefs and opinions. When they are confronted by truth that conflicts with existing beliefs, opinions or values, they become very stressed or very uncomfortable; this is known as cognitive dissonance. They don’t want to hear the truth. They don’t want their delusions shattered; they don’t want to be wrong. They can’t handle it, so they get so defensive. They will rationalize, twist, criticize, deny, attack… Instead of adjusting to the truth, people want to twist the truth. Avatars are seen as a threat and often are ignored, oppressed and imprisoned even in these modern times.

True religion/spirituality is pointing to something completely different than what fools and fanatics believe.

Search with all your heart/soul for that which is infinite and eternal and experience the union with that. Do not blindly believe what others say without your own experience. When you believe in something blindly, you misunderstand it and it becomes a fantasy. You don’t really know it.

Fanatics will distort the religious texts to say whatever they want to say. Religious texts have been distorted, misunderstood and misinterpreted. Try a simple Chinese whispers game, and you will understand what it means. You must take all these factors into account if you are interested in the truth. Even today, historical books contradict each other significantly concerning the alleged reality of what occurred during a war that happened only about six or seven decades ago.

When you catch someone in one contradiction/lie, doesn’t it make you question everything else he/she has said? Now apply the same principle to politics, media, religious scriptures, pseudo/neo-Advaita, etc.

Some people are jumping from religious beliefs to belief in pseudoscience, quantum woo woo, conspiracy theories, Illusionism, UFOs, aliens, physical parallel Universes, time travel on this temporal realm, etc. Wake up and get real. Develop and strengthen your ability to distinguish between real science and quackademia/gobbledygook.

“I don’t want to believe. I want to know.” – Carl Sagan

“The usefulness in a cup is in its emptiness. Once you fill a cup, it can no longer be used. Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.” – Bruce Lee

“Like a cup, you are full of your own opinions and self assertions. How can I show you Zen unless you empty your cup first?” – Nan-in

Discernment/ CHAPTER 7

“Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.” – Carl Sagan

“It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

“See the false as false, the true as true. Look into your heart. Follow your nature.” – Buddha

Buddha emphasised the need for discernment (separate the wheat from the chaff). With the ability to discern you can be your own guru. One must discern to the best of one’s capacity, and develop the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff (select what is useful or valuable and reject what is useless or worthless). It requires wisdom to understand deeper wisdom.

Modern society is full of fools. A plethora of baseless information and theory circulates under the guise of “religion” and “spirituality.” These are blinds set out by armchair teachers (theorists) and false prophets. None of them are Enlightened/Self-realised. By not knowing the foundation of universal religion/spirituality and making up fanciful theories out of their own minds/false ego/conditioned mind-self, they exhibit their ignorance to all. Many people have been and are still daily led astray by them.

We must learn to discern between truth and falsehood, right and wrong, permanent and impermanent, real and delusion, reality and fantasy, positive people and negative people, true sages and false prophets/demons, and so on. Haphazard reading of spiritual books will lead to mental confusion and, eventually, desperation, preventing you from ever learning anything. Learn to discern between good books and bad ones by armchair teachers (theorists).

The ability to discern the true doctrine from the false is essential to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal-Self. Blind guides and false doctrine will lead you into some pit (suffering, delusion and madness). If you mix medicine with poison, it is not medicine. It is a poison. Each of us separates medicine from poison to heal our physical bodies. Apply the same principle to your soul.

One of the problems with our consumerist society is that there is too much meaningless and useless information. Beware of false doctrine. It is very harmful to your soul. It can lead you into a pit (suffering, madness). Ignorance is safer than false doctrine.

We must learn to discern between the real or the Self and the unreal or the non-self (false ego, negative character traits).

“A thief may harm a thief; an enemy may harm an enemy; but a wrongly directed mind can do oneself far greater harm.” – Buddha

Dividing is the easiest way to conquer. Many demon/evil people are using the internet/media to feed the masses with misinformation, disinformation, exaggerations and lies. If you don’t have the ability to discern, you will drown in misinformation, disinformation, exaggerations and lies. Almost everything in the media and the internet is misinformation, disinformation, exaggerations and lies. Modern society has generally “lost the plot.”

Some people deliberately mix some truth with falsehoods, half-truths and lies. The medicine mixed with poison is only a poison. False doctrine is like rat poison, which contains 99% good food and 1% poison—it’s that 1% of poison (or falsehood) that leads to suffering, delusion and madness. Take responsibility for your life. Don’t rely on others to do the research for you and make up your mind for you. YOU are responsible to investigate the different teachings and discern truth from falsehood. YOU must do some serious soul searching for the truth. Don’t leave it in someone else’s hands, because there is only one right answer in terms of what happens when we die. You better figure out what that is before it is too late.

Everything one needs to know about the deepest mysteries of life and how to attain happiness and bliss has been told in countless ways, for countless centuries. All that is required is the motivation/curiosity to seek with an open mind, the discernment to separate the wheat from the chaff, the faith to try, and the will to persevere.

Avoid all those teachers/prophets who do not have the ability to discern between truth and falsehood and just give you the same regurgitated religious/spiritual vomit. Avoid these parrots with verbal diarrhea. Avoid those infected with the new deadly spiritually transmitted disease called pseudo/neo-Advaita (Illusionism). I speak of them only to put you on your guard.

If you don’t have the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff, you will be eating the chaff (falsehood/delusion) separated by someone else, not the wheat (truth/reality).

“Discover yourself, otherwise you have to depend on other people’s opinions who don’t know themselves.” – Osho

“Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, and add what is uniquely your own.” – Bruce Lee

Truth/ CHAPTER 8

“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” – Blaise Pascal

“The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true.” – Carl Sagan

“Plato is my friend, Aristotle is my friend, but my best friend is truth.” – Isaac Newton

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” – Buddha

“Truth is what stands the test of experience.” – Albert Einstein

“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.” – Albert Einstein

In these modern times of lies, deception, hypocrisy and false flag operations, telling the truth takes a lot of courage.

“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed.” – Marcus Aurelius

I’m for truth, no matter who teaches it. Most people are not interested in figuring out the truth for themselves. People are no longer interested in in the actual truth. They just want constant reassurance that their past conditioning is the truth. Conditioned people try to adjust/twist the truth to themselves, but the true seeker bends himself to the truth. Align with the Truth. Buddhas/Siddhas/Avatars/Adepts will always be on the side of Truth. Take the side of the truth.

“Find friends who love the truth.” – Buddha

Truth is absolute/universal. The truth just is. Truth is simple. Truth is eternal. Truth is sacred. Truth is precious. If you love truth, you are true to yourself. Truth empowers you.

An opinion is an opinion even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if nobody perceives it. Opinions are many, but the truth is only one. The truth is only one, though the wise may express it differently. Truth will remain truth. It cannot be changed. But the theories/opinions of the unenlightened ones, which are incorrectly given by some as truth, are subject to change.

“Let us follow the truth whither so ever it leads.” – Socrates

Pursue the truth no matter where it leads. There is no religion, spirituality, philosophy or science greater than Truth. Only the pursuit of truth will set you free. Truth can guide and lead you to ultimate Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal-Self (Sahaja Nirvi-kalpa-Samadhi/Moksha/Nirvana).

“When you seek the Truth, you are seeking God. Truth is God.” – Sai Baba

Nothing will satisfy you until you pursue the truth and know yourself. I (Universal I) am the way, the truth, and the life; no one enters the eternal realm except through the pursuit of truth, love, simplicity, purity and dharma. You will never find your true self until you embody truth, love, simplicity and dharma.

Always look for the deeper meaning/truth hidden beneath the blind religious belief/dogma. Once found, it transforms blind belief/dogma into Knowing and Understanding.

The sage is impelled by the love of truth and the thirst after wisdom.

That which can be proven wrong by the truth should be. But the perception of truth depends on your own level of spiritual maturity/evolution. Most spiritual teachers know some truth but not the whole truth.

Emptiness of mind is necessary for the reception of truth. Inner silence is the source of truth. Wisdom is the fruit of pursuing the truth.

Everyone is at different stages of consciousness. Primary school children cannot comprehend post-graduate physics. In the same way, deep spiritual truth cannot be comprehended by most spiritual aspirants who are at various stages on the path to Union with the Universal-Self and will always judge from his/her own point of view.

What people understand depends on the stage of their own spiritual maturity/evolution. They will not understand deeper things for which they are not ripe. People will only understand what they are ready to understand. People will only perceive what they are ready to perceive.

Truth is truth even if nobody supports it. The mind/conditioned mind-self/false egos hate the truth and attack anyone who stands up for the truth. They twist its meaning and turn it into something that feeds the false ego. Most people do not want you to follow the truth. They just want you to follow their false path in life.

Spiritual truth is rejected by the masses. Most people don’t want to hear the truth because of cognitive dissonance. They are enjoying their dreams. If you wake them up, they want to attack you.

Truth is absolute. Demons attack it. Fools twist its meaning. But truth remains as truth.

Don’t twist the truth to fit your false beliefs. Twist your false beliefs to fit the truth.

Truth is absolute, regardless of your lack of understanding or your cognitive dissonance.

What is, is the truth. Truth is, was, and will be without any modification. 2 + 3 = 5 for all human beings, whether you like it or not. It remains the same forever. There is no such thing as “my truth,” “your truth,” etc. The truth never will be proven wrong by some future discoveries in science or religion/spirituality. The truth has already proven that science without universal spirituality is only half-truth.

The ultimate truth is beyond science. The truth the scientific evidence supports is not the ultimate. It is the ultimate universal truth that unifies us all.

If you tell the truth, you don’t have to worry about contradictions later. Tell the truth or someone will prove you wrong.

The modern/Western/mind society is drifting further and further away from spiritual truth. The further it drifts from spiritual truth, the more it will hate, falsely accuse and demonize those who speak the truth.

Society must conform to the truth and should be built upon truth. Politics is subjective. It is not based on truth. But people conform to man-made laws and reject spiritual truth. Conspiracy theories are not true. Conspiracy theories are just crackpot beliefs.

“If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.” – Emile Zola

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed—only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.” – Nikola Tesla

I will continue to bear testimony to truth even if only a handful of people truly understand the message.

Death/ CHAPTER 9

“Uncertain is life, certain is death; it is necessary that I should die; at the close of my life there is death. Life is indeed unsure but death is sure, death is sure.” – Buddha

In the Mahabharata, the sage Yudhisthira is asked, “Of all things in life, what is the most amazing?” Yudhisthira answers, “That a man, seeing others die all around him, never thinks that he will die.”

Death in inevitable. Death is certain; the future is not. No one can be for sure, absolutely certain, that he/she is going to be alive tomorrow. What lives will die. Youth and beauty do not last but are followed by sickness, old age and suffering; from death there is no escape. Every day, some 160,000 people die. Your life is short. With each birthday, one more year is gone from your hands.

Here, within our temporal realm, nothing is permanent but change. Everything is evolving. All living forms are born, grow, decay, and die. Worldwide, the average life expectancy at birth is around 71.0 years. Our planet Earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago, and it will last another 7.5 billion years or so, but will be habitable for far less than this.

We came into this world with nothing, and will depart the same way. Family, fame, honour, riches and all other earthly advantages cannot be taken from here when we die. If you live with a constant awareness of death and the transience of life, you will be able to resist all temptation and avoid all evils.

Time is running out every moment. Use your time wisely. Manage it so that you spend as much time and energy as possible on the spiritual path (spiritual development).

“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” – Charles Darwin

The true significance of family and friends is the opportunity it gives for mutual support and encouragement on the path to Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self.

Life is about spiritual evolution, and when we die all we can take with us is that evolved state of consciousness into the next life. Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is the only non-physical treasure that maintains its value. Nothing is permanent except the universal awareness. Seek first the Union with the Universal Self, and all the treasures shall be added unto you.

Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama) was a Hindu prince. But one day he renounced all wealth and privilege to pursue Enlightenment because he had understood the impermanence and meaninglessness of mundane life (maya).

“After Self-realization, one does not regard any other gain superior to Self-realization. Established in Self-realization, one is not moved even by the greatest calamity.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.22)

“Immersed in the wonder of the Tao, you can deal with whatever life brings you, and when death comes, you are ready.” – Lao Tzu

Death should not scare you. You must be ready for it. It is the contemplation of death that makes an initiate sufficiently detached from everything. It is the contemplation of death that destroys all delusions (maya). An initiate knows death is stalking and all you can do is completely surrender and consider oneself already dead. The one who live life to the fullest (Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self) is ready to die at any time. Enlightened /Self-realized beings are fearless and ready to return to the Source.

“It is better to spend one day contemplating the birth and death of all things than a hundred years never contemplating beginnings and endings.” – Buddha

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” – Buddha

“From the moment of birth, the march to the cremation ground has started. Some reach the place quicker than others, some go by a round about route and arrive late. That is the only difference, between man and man. But, yet, man walks about as if death is but a distant calamity” – Sai Baba

If you don’t feel what death means, if you don’t understand what death is, you will not understand anything else in spirituality. This is the most fundamental thing. The contemplation of death is the very foundation of spiritual practice. If you could learn one thing in life, it should be this. Everybody knows intellectually what death is, but only a few understand what it really means. There is a big difference between understanding something intellectually and experiencing and knowing it in our hearts.

Everyone will experience death, but only a very few experience what it means to be fully alive. This is the greatest tragedy in life. Most people never will truly understand death until it happens to them. People are in complete denial. If only people could understand what it means to die, there would be peace, love and harmony throughout the Earth.

“There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die. But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.” – Buddha

No one wants to die. It is the ultimate nightmare for most people. But you don’t realise how unprepared you are. If today was your last day, how would you feel about your life, consumerism, and everything? Death doesn’t come with advanced warning. Die psychologically everyday so that the next day feels like a new incarnation. Live every day as if it were your last. No one is promised tomorrow.

“I am just living on the fringe. So when I go to sleep I say good-bye to the world, because I don’t know for certain that tomorrow morning I will wake up. When I wake up, I am amazed that there is one more day, one more celebration.” – Osho

Everybody dies, but not everyone lives. Only when we begin to know about death do we actually learn to start living/BEing. You (this incarnation) only live once (this incarnation); but if you live it right (Union with the Universal Self), it is enough.

“The birds taking shelter for the night awake and fly away to the four quarters at sunrise; so too, the wife and children, the fortune and wealth, all fly away without as much as even a farewell notice. Establish yourselves firmly in this fact; make immediate efforts to achieve the eternal, the permanent, the unchanging.” – Sai Baba

“Be ready to die every moment…Don’t cling and don’t resist…Life will happen to you if you are ready to die. This looks paradoxical, but this is the law. Jesus says that one who is ready to lose will gain, and one who clings will lose everything.” – Osho

“When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” – Tecumseh (Native American)

I am Awake, said the Buddha/ CHAPTER 10

When a disciple asked Buddha: “Are you a God?” Buddha said, “No.” “Are you an Angel?” “No.” “Then what are you?” “I am Awake.” – Buddha.

“I am all that was, that is, and that shall be and no mortal has ever lifted my veil.” – Temple of Isis at Sais, Ancient Egypt

Humanity has for the most part lost its understanding of what a human being can be. True spirituality is a system by which to reclaim the full realization of our true heritage as human beings.

The stated goal of Spirituality is Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Some have described it as becoming “more than human,” but to become more than human, one must first become fully human. Spiritual initiation is the process of reclaiming what it truly means to be a human being, and all the miraculous faculties (Maha-siddhis) are the natural powers inherent to humanity.

Few understand the fullness of what being a human being means. Spiritual initiation does not turn us into goddesses or gods or make us other than human. It merely teaches us what it REALLY means to be a HUMAN being. Being fully human is being divine.

Even an Avatar is only the agent of Brahman, not the fullness of Brahman itself. We are HUMAN beings, even when we merge with Brahman-Self.

You are an Atman (microcosm) created/projected by the macrocosm (Eternal Tao/Brahman/ Source/Nothingness/Universal Consciousness). You can merge with Universal Consciousness/Brahman like a drop of water merging in the ocean. A drop of water becomes the ocean by dissolving in it, not by becoming another ocean. Only in this sense you are Brahman-Self. A drop of water is not the whole ocean. A tsunami is caused by an ocean. A drop of water cannot cause a tsunami. There is a difference.

Our planet Earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago. Humans have really been on the planet for a fraction of the lifetime of the Earth. Archaeologists estimate that modern humans have been on the Earth for about 200,000 years. The Universe existed before the evolution of human beings.

“There have been many incarnations of myself and yourself; I know them all, but you do not” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 4.05)

Even the greatest Avatars like Krishna, Hermes Trismegistus, Buddha, Jesus and others all had previous incarnations as normal human beings. They were just pioneers in the search for Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

When you see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, you can call/assume that bird a duck. When you see that your Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet is born like a human, walks like a human, talks like a human, eats like a human, and preaches like a human, it is because he/she is a human being.

“I am only a man like you.” – Prophet Muhammad (Quran 41:6)

“I am only a mortal like you” – Prophet Muhammad (Quran 18:110)

“The Messiah, the son of Mary was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him.” – Prophet Muhammad (Quran 5:575)

“Before enlightenment—chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment—chop wood, carry water.” – Zen Buddhist Proverb

“The mystery of creation is sought to be discovered by man but it is something unique and undecipherable. Man’s talents can never fathom it. The how and why of God’s sport is known only to God. Man’s task is to enjoy it and benefit by it.” – Sai Baba

“Brahman is mysterious and incomprehensible.” – Upanishads

“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao (Brahman). You can’t know it.” – Lao Tzu

Those who are Enlightened/Self-realised live in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility and reverence. No one can comprehend that which is infinite and eternal. The multi-dimensionally (astral, mental, eternal or akashic, nondual) infinite and eternal Brahman is unknowable, incomprehensible. Enlightened/Self-realised human beings do not know the essential nature of Brahman; only fools can claim to know everything.

Simplicity/ CHAPTER 11

Simplicity is the essence of universality. Simplicity is the essence of true universal spirituality. Simplicity is the sign of Enlightened/Self-realised being. Truth is simple. Life is simple. People make it complicated for themselves and for others. Let’s keep it simple. Nature is simple in essence. Nature is Brahman. As the Alchemists say, “Listen to Nature…It leads the way.”

People have lost the simplicity of life, because they have lost contact with their soul/heart. They do not know their true nature. Seek simplicity. Simplicity is the key to universal spirituality.

“Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace. Better than a thousand hollow verses is one verse that brings peace.” – Buddha

“It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few. ” – Pythagoras

“If the answer is simple, God is speaking” – Albert Einstein.

“Truth is ever to be found in simplicity” – Isaac Newton

The obvious is not understood until the Enlightened/Self-realised being embodies it and expresses it simply.

Spirituality is so simple. It is this simplicity that is causing the problem for learned scholars, pseudo-quantum physicists, modern philosophers, and for most people in modern societies. But the simple village people understand the essence of universal spirituality.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein

People do not want to be simple anymore. Man’s extreme tendencies alienate him from natural law (Dharma). When he goes against the law of Dharma, he accumulates negative karma which leads to physical, emotional and psychological problems.

“The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it.” – John Kenneth Galbraith

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” – Albert Einstein

Happiness/ CHAPTER 12

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence” – Aristotle

Spiritual bliss/ecstasy is beyond happiness and is the result of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

“There is pleasure and there is bliss. Forgo the first to possess the second.” – Buddha

People in search of love and happiness are running away from their Self, which is the real source of love, happiness and bliss. People seek love and happiness outside themselves in money, possessions, power, prestige or human limited love and ultimately in organised religion. The real key to happiness is to turn one’s attention inward and connect with the Universal Self. Know your true Self. Realise yourSelf. Real happiness lies within you. Return to your true Self to experience happiness.

Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is a state of consciousness. Mental discipline is an internal ability that is not dependent upon external circumstances. Find your happiness through the restoration of inner wholeness before you can find it anywhere else. Consciously determine your own internal state. Don’t let the external world determine your inner state. Most people are buffeted here and there by external circumstances. Be in charge of your own state of consciousness.

“Happiness is a quality of the soul…not a function of one’s material circumstances.” – Aristotle

Children are happy by nature (before they are brainwashed/conditioned by our modern society). Look at the birds, look at animals, and look at tribes untouched by modern civilization. They are happy for no reason other than it is our natural state. Happiness is our natural state. Happiness is our essential nature.

It is happiness that we all seek, but with one difference. Few seek true happiness within, and most seek false happiness (transient pleasure) in money, sex, material goods, political power, organised religion, cults, etc. Mankind is being led astray by modern politics, economics, business, fanatical religions, etc. Life is full of stress. The whole world is fraught with temptation. People are selling their soul for transient pleasures. Very, very few are truly happy. People who embody happiness, serenity, and contentment—qualities extremely rare in these modern days.

Rediscover your childhood happiness. And go beyond it to discover your blissful-Self.

Peace, happiness and bliss are available in every moment. Don’t rely on others to make you happy. Rely on yourself. People, consumer goods, money, etc. cannot bring you eternal happiness. None but the Divine Self.

When you realise the eternal Bliss only comes from the Divine Self, you will always abide in the Self.

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal of Being the Universal Self, not to people or material goods. Eternal Bliss is within you. Seek it within you.

Looking for love and happiness through accumulation outside of ourselves—from relationships, wealth, social status, consumer goods, etc.—is like a fish in the ocean looking for water.

Losing your soul/heart/Atman is the cause of all the misery. The wise never lose contact with their soul.

True happiness resides not in consumer goods, wealth, social status, political power, etc. but knowing your true self.

Spiritual life is not the absence of problems, but knowing you can deal with them. Stop worrying about things which are beyond your control. Learn to accept and let go.

“There is neither Self-knowledge, nor Self-perception to those who are not united with the Supreme. Without Self-perception there is no peace, and without peace there can be no happiness.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.66)

Earthly rewards are transitory; divine rewards (being Universal Self) are everlasting. All the treasures/wealth of the world and honours are not to be compared with Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

Eventually you’ll find that nothing is really of any value unless it is that which helps you to progress in spirituality to reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

Moderation creates balance, but complete abstinence from pleasure creates imbalance. Generally, walking the path to “buddhahood” inculcates a lack of desire for excessive personal comfort within the Avatar/Buddha/Siddha/Adept. Not that riches are necessarily shunned, but rather, they become unimportant.

Enjoy your life and be happy—it’s all that matters. May all beings be happy.

“I wish everyone could get rich and famous and everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that’s not the answer.” – Jim Carrey

“Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society.” – Princess Diana

Control your mind/ CHAPTER 13

“Thoughts are like arrows: once released, they strike their mark. Guard them well or one day you may be your own victim.” – Navajo Proverbs (Native American)

“One must elevate and not degrade oneself by one’s own mind. The mind alone is one’s friend as well as one’s enemy. The mind is the friend of those who have control over it, and the mind acts like an enemy for those who do not control it.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.05 – 06)

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” – Buddha

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” – Buddha

“Be careful with your mind. Be vigilant; guard your mind against negative thoughts.” – Buddha

“Nothing brings suffering as does the untamed, uncontrolled unattended and unrestrained mind. That mind brings great suffering.” – Buddha

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. What we think we become.” – Buddha

“He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty. To the mind that is still, the whole Universe surrenders.” – Lao Tzu

“To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others.” – Buddha

Be the master of your mind. Control your mind, and do not let it deviate from the right path.

The mind, when under observation, goes quiet of its own accord. The thoughts slow of their own accord when you achieve this passive state of mere observation. You are observing its action without participating in it. It’s sort of like sitting at an outdoor cafe and watching the passersby. They walk and talk and eat and so on, and all you’re doing is watching them do their thing.

“Awake. Be the witness of your thoughts.” – Buddha

Thinking is only a very small part of awareness, just one of its capabilities. What you are doing here is setting aside the thinking brain/bound mind in favour of pure awareness. While there is an absence of thoughts and thinking, there is no lack of awareness.

An empty mind is the launching point for higher states of awareness that have nothing to do with thought.

There are three distinct mental exercises. First is the focused observation of thoughts, then the focus upon a single thought (mindfulness), and then the focus upon no thoughts. The second exercise of one-pointed focus is like sitting at the same busy cafe and reading a book. All the busy noise is still going on around, but the focus is upon reading the book. With the third exercise of emptiness or vacancy of mind, the attention is shifted completely away from its involvement with thoughts and thinking and is focused instead upon the peaceful silence that exists in the absence of thought.

The true, ultimate form of emptiness of mind is pure and simple BEing. This is in fact a heightened state of awareness of Self/Brahman, not a forgetting or blanking out, etc. There is no thinking, no sensing, no doing, only perceiving and BEing.

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.” – Voltaire

Children, birds and animals also think, but in harmony with their Atman-self. There is no ego (false ego/false “I”) in them. They do not go to extreme and get lost in their head like modern man.

There is the mundane human awareness, Atman-awareness and ultimately Brahman/Universal awareness. The goal of Self-realisation/Enlightenment is Universal awareness (union with that which is infinite and eternal), not mundane human awareness.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: What about the “I” thought ?
HB: There is no such thing as an “I” thought. Why do you make things so complicated? There is the real “I” or self-identification and the false “I” (“false” ego). The false “I” (“false” ego) refers to the negative aspects of the personality. As the initiate (spiritual aspirant) transforms those negative aspects through the work of character transformation, a new sense of the self emerges (the true “I”).

Q&A
Q: What is the difference between “I am That/God” and “I AM”?
A: The practice of “I am That” leads to a temporal state of being at-one-with Brahman. The “I AM” is that experience. But you are still a human being with your expanded/evolved Atman-self while you are on this temporal physical realm.

Fanatical religious people usually attack everyone as sinners (projection of their own psyche on others). Some of them now learn a bit of Eastern philosophy like parrots and are attacking others as ego, mind, concepts and finally as thoughts. But how did you manage to say thoughts without you thinking first?

Heart/ CHAPTER 14

“Our first teacher is our own heart.” – Cheyenne (Native American)

“The more we live by our intellect, the less we understand the meaning of life.” – Leo Tolstoy

The most beautiful and deepest mysteries of the Universe cannot be seen, heard, tasted, smelled or touched—they must be felt with your soul/heart and perceived with your spirit/awareness.

“You must warn people not to make the intellect their God. The intellect knows methods but it seldom knows values, and they come from feeling.” – Albert Einstein

Rational logic/intellect alone cannot know what is beyond it. Rational logic/intellect alone cannot know Atman-self and Brahman-Self, but rational logic/intellect is known by the Self as only a very small part of it. Just one of its capabilities.

“The Self is not something known by the mind. The Self is the very One who knows! How then, could you think to know the Self?” – Song of the Avadhut

The rational intellect can, after the direct experience of emotion, analyse and respond to the emotion, but it cannot experience the emotion—it cannot feel the emotion. An overly rational mind can be a hindrance, since this often serves as a barrier to emotion, intuition and spontaneity.

Rational logic/intellect is not the summit of human consciousness. Recognise the limitations of the intellect and become its master rather than its slave. Rational logic/intellect alone cannot help you to know what is beyond itself. It alone is of no use to realise the Universal Self (Enlightenment/Self-realisation). Rational logic/intellect alone is an obstacle in realising the Universal Self. One has to transcend the rational logic/intellect in order to understand its limitation. The intellect needs to be balanced with emotions. Seek to blend rational logic with emotion and transform them together through self-transformation. This opens the initiate/spiritual aspirant to the higher levels of consciousness/awareness that are capable of true knowing.

“Logic will get you from A to B.” – Albert Einstein

The deeper meaning of spirituality/life is too simple to be mentally conceptualised. Go behind the rational, social ego to the soul/heart and surrender to your Divine Self.

Spiritual progress is not measured by intellectual understanding. It is measured by expansion of your individual consciousness. A purely intellectual understanding of the deep spirituality is useless.

“Growth in consciousness doesn’t depend on the will of the intellect or its possibilities but on the intensity of the inner urge.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt).

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will; the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why. The truly valuable thing is the intuition.” – Albert Einstein

Meditation does not depend on the intellect. Meditation is not an intellectual process. The mind and the intellect are transcended and they become the instrument of the true Self instead of the false ego. Work at letting go of the rational intellect. When your mind goes into analysis mode, relax and let go to stop and, instead of analysing, just perceive.

To truly master an understanding of the Universal structure, you must inhabit several perspectives at once and see it from all “sides” simultaneously, inside and out. These are realms that logic alone cannot penetrate. The poor old rational mind needs the help that only direct experience provides the individual.

Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao cannot be realised with rational logic/intellect. Brahman cannot be perceived with the rational intellect alone. Rational logic/intellect alone makes people see things outside as separate from each other, and not that which is its own source.

An overly rational mind can be a hindrance, and even completely prevents the Brahman from being perceived.

The more man progresses in the line of intellectual achievement, the further he gets from the spiritual truth; conversely, the further back we go in the history of civilization or simple societies, the nearer we shall find man to spiritual truth.

“Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.” – Albert Einstein

Modern man has over developed his intellectual aspect and neglected his emotional aspect of himself. Because of this, you may encounter a person who is quite intelligent but very abrasive. Modern man has not yet matured emotionally or has a heart chakra that is quite undeveloped.

Some spiritual teachers are only intellectual and not Enlightened/Self-realised/merged with Brahman. Their teachings are nothing more than the product of a modern rational mind and have no intrinsic spiritual value. Don’t waste your time listening to intellectual answers. Pseudo/Neo- Advaitin and some so-called truthers are blinded by logical fallacies. The modern rational mind alone never can penetrate to the deeper aspects of non-physical reams—these things cannot be comprehended through the limited, rational logic.

“What is uttered from the heart alone, Will win the hearts of others to your own.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Major cultural traditions of the West are strongly biased in favour of the intellect and against the emotions.

Much of Western culture treats the emotions with distrust and contempt; standards of behaviour and manners often require that feelings be hidden away whenever possible, piled up in a sort of inner attic like so much outworn rubbish. Choices are supposed to be made rationally without emotional interference. Attitudes such as these have resulted in buildings, cities, institutions and social systems, designed logically and with the best intentions in the world, which have proven to be sterile and inhuman because their designers paid no attention to human emotional needs.

Rational logic alone has still not led humanity to true knowledge. With it, we have nearly destroyed our planet Earth and ourselves. Start with false assumption and you will end up with false conclusion, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between.

You must bring more than just your rational intellect to your understanding of spirituality. Your conclusion may be logical, but not necessarily accurate.

“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” – Buddha

Spirituality cannot be reduced to rationalism. It is transcendental. Leaping to a conclusion with intellectual arrogance about the nature of an Avatar and miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) without your own ultimate spiritual experience (Enlightenment/ Self-realisation) will not get you very far with spirituality. What some call evidence against miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) are just beliefs, misunderstandings, conditionings, faith/belief in scientific dogmas, superseded or obsolete scientific theories and logical fallacies.

Life requires rigorous thinking and the inclusion of more than just your rational logic. A little intellectual knowledge is a dangerous thing. Many claim to know the ultimate truth, but they don’t. The same habits of logical thought that can make perfect sense out of one portion of experience can generate utter confusion and misunderstanding when applied to a different part. Your limited rationality can take you anywhere, can justify anything, as it is not absolute. If you don’t know the secrets of the classical elements, how would you know what Enlightenment/Self- realisation/Union with the Universal Self, the nature of an Avatar/Siddha and miraculous abilities are? You don’t. Do not pitch your tiny little modern rational logic/intellect against the evolved consciousness of the Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts and their discoveries. You do not have a chance.

“There is a science of the spirit, as there is a science of matter; it has its own categories; its own modus operandi; its own experts and authoritative theses.” – Sai Baba

Wisdom doesn’t come from the intellect/head. You can have five PhDs in theology; it doesn’t mean you understand the true meaning of the concepts/words in universal religion/spirituality. Scholars do not understand the universal religion/spirituality because they are not Enlightened/ Self-realised. Wisdom comes from being Atman-self and the Universal Self.

The head is a symbol for intellect. The heart is a symbol for emotions/feelings. Move from the head to the heart. Don’t think, feel and perceive.

In ancient Egyptian mummification all internal organs including the brain were removed—except the heart.

Love/ CHAPTER 15

“Those who experiences the unity of life sees their own Self in all beings, and all beings in their own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.” – Buddha

“To those in whom love dwells the whole world is but one family” – Buddha

For most people, mundane love is a vital part of human existence. But relationships cannot last without true soul connection between couples. Body attraction is physical and is not true love because it emanates from conditioning (cultural programming). The quality of true love emanates from a pure heart and not from the mind or conditioned mind-self. Most people view their partner as an object that they own and can control. Jealousy, selfishness and possessiveness are part of insecurity or fear of loss, not part of true love. Only when you know your own spirit (Atman) can you relate to the spirit in the other. Such a relationship is true love and its roots go very deep, bringing forth fulfilment and everlasting joy. Pure love is detached. A detached person is beautiful and extremely loving. Pure love can be the gateway to incredible spiritual growth. Love is our true essence. Love knows no distinctions, division, barriers of caste, religion, race, status, colour, and nationality.

With true mundane love, your partner must feel free and empowered.

“The highest degree of a medicine is Love.” – Paracelsus

The spiritual aspirant must at all times be in control of their own emotional human love. Don’t let your strong emotions control you. For the spiritual aspirant, emotion must be intentional, not reactionary (where one is a slave to their emotion, not master of it). In the astral realm there exists nothing like the instinct for carnal, sexual love and sexual lust. Therefore couples inevitably grow apart unless they have kept the same pace in their spiritual development.

Divine love is free and unconditional, as opposed to emotional possessiveness which, is often mistaken as love. Mundane love is temporary; divine love is eternal. Mundane pure love should lead to divine love. In the human manifestation of love, we tend to direct it at specific persons, ideas and things. Thus, our human love is more limited than the divine love and it is a projection from ourselves to something external. The divine love includes EVERY thing in this Universe. It is without bias and is shared equally with the entire Universe.

Self-love of the little self leads to cognition of the big Self, which includes all little selves. When you reach the state of universal love, there is no division between “self” and “other.” Instead, you simply love Self. You start melting with nature and the entire Universe. You are again like a child. Your eyes are full of wonder. Love the entire Universe as yourself. All is Brahman/Divine/Self. There is only Brahman. Love is bliss. Love is expansion. Love is selflessness. Love is detachment. Love is deep contentment. When you are in love, silence becomes the language.

“Self-Love does not mean egotistical pride.” – Osho

You must forgo the wants of the lower for a higher divine love. People in search of love and happiness are running away from their Self, which is the real source of love. People seek love and happiness outside themselves in money, possessions, power or human limited love and ultimately in organised religion. Only the union with Brahman/Universal Consciousness/ The One Self/Eternal Tao leads to bliss and immortality.

Divine love leads to union with Brahman/Divine. Atman (individual consciousness) expands through love, through empathy with the “infinite Universe,” through becoming-at-one-with the “other.” The “infinite Universe” then becomes a part of itself.

Divine Love doesn’t just mean that the Divine/Brahman loves us all in spite of our short comings, that there is someone in the sky we can call on when we get in a fix, etc. Instead, Brahman provides everything that is involved in the eternal miracle/creation/projection and sustenance of all that exists in this Universe. We are encompassed within the Divine/Brahman, so this is really an aspect of how the Divine naturally sustains ItSelf. It is an impersonal fact of Brahman nature, not a special gift given to human beings. All of our needs, and the needs of everything in the Universe, are eternally and perfectly met because that is an inherent part of Brahman/Divine BEing. Within the human experience, karma is the Divine/Brahman presenting us with the best opportunities to make the correct choices and thereby evolve “spiritually” to Enlightenment/Self-realisation.

Love is your true essence. Divinity is the embodiment of love. BE the embodiment of Universal Love. Live and Love All (entire Universe) as if there is no tomorrow.

“A yogi, who is in union with the Supreme Being, sees every being with an equal eye because of perceiving the omnipresent Spirit abiding in all beings, and all beings abiding in the Supreme Being.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.29)

“I have no desires or ambition. There is no trace of jealousy in Me. I am love personified. Love is My very life. Wisdom is the fruit that I grant. These two form the basis of My life.” – Sai Baba

Take care of your physical body/ CHAPTER 16

“Your body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” – Buddha

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it.

Some of the benefits of exercise and physical activity: (1) prevents chronic disease; (2) help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep; (3) boosts energy; (4) can help increase your chances of living longer; and (5) can help improve your mental health and mood. Physical activity causes the release of endorphins, the brain’s own happy little neurotransmitters that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

In spirituality, no part of yourself must lag behind or be neglected. The body, soul and spirit must be trained simultaneously. Keep your body flexible. What matters most is to keep your body elastic.

“Martial art has had a very, very deep meaning as far as my life is concerned because, as an actor, as a martial artist, as a human being, all these I have learned from martial art. Ultimately, martial art means honestly expressing yourself. To express oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly enough; that my friend is very hard to do.” – Bruce Lee

“To realize this Unity, the first step is to develop self-confidence…It starts with self-confidence and it ends with realizing the Self.” – Sai Baba

Detachment/ CHAPTER 17

“The root of suffering is attachment.” – Buddha

“Life is a bridge, enjoy while crossing but don’t build a castle on it.” – Upanishads

“You can only lose what you cling to.” – Buddha

One should cultivate an attitude of non-attachment or detachment. One should live in the world like the lotus leaf, which is unaffected by water. Be in the Universe, but not of this foolish man made system (extreme consumerism/Matrix).

Attachment is born of ignorance, selfishness and passion. Attachment is bondage. Attachment is maya. Attachment is duality. Hate is the worst kind of attachment. Forgiveness is detachment. Living in the present moment is detachment. Attachment to the Universal Self/Brahman/Source is detachment. Being your true self is detachment. Detachment is wisdom. Detachment is freedom. Detachment is purity. Detachment is your natural state.

Indulgence in the object of physical senses produces attachment to them. Attachment leads to suffering—disappointment, frustration, pain, and sorrow.

Be free from attachment to the transitory. Do not get attached to anyone, but develop a universal feeling. Do not get attached to the physical body of a guru or teacher—that’s the worst kind of attachment and delusion. Attachment to people, things and views can often lead us to suffering.

Mundane life is completely meaningless (maya) except for your spiritual journey. It makes no difference whether you are a king, billionaire, or penniless peasant, famous, or nobody, white or black. Mundane life is like a 3D movie. We are all actors/actresses in this movie. Play your role, but do not identify yourself with the role that you play. Be detached and watch the drama unfold. In real movies, actors/actresses know that they are not that character they play in the movies. Your Atman (soul) is the real you. Stay focused on your return journey to the Source.

Attachment to the Universal Self (an infinite, all-encompassing, universal being) is a potent antidote to annihilate all worldly attachments. Dwell always in your own core self. Abide in your own core self. Abide in your centre.

Flow through the banks of life without attachment; otherwise one gets stuck and will never return to the shore of eternity.

Be free of worldly attachments. Be detached and free like the birds.

“Don’t let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat.” – Robert De Niro, “Heat”

Here on Earth, we are only lease holders. Planet Earth is the only freeholder. Human beings are only lease holders. Only Earth is the freeholder. No one owns anyone or anything. Planet Earth owns everything on it.

“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.” –Buddha

“Do not cultivate too much attachment to things of the world, which appeal to carnal desires and sensual thirsts. A moment comes when you have to depart empty handed, leaving all that you have laboriously collected. and proudly called your own.” – Sai Baba

“Practise detachment from now on; practise it little by little, for a day will come sooner or later when you will have to give up all that you hold dear. Do not go on adding to the things which bind you to them. Bind yourself to the great liberator, God.” – Sai Baba

“Attachments make you lose your freedom. You can move freely, when you are not encumbered with burdens. Less luggage, more comfort, is a slogan for the journey of life. Reduce desires, loosen attachments; you win your freedom.” – Sai Baba

When people organize in groups, they mark their identities by distinguishing themselves from others. Dogmatically religious/spiritual people idolise and become trapped in the personality cult worship. Attachment to the physical body and worship of a guru/son of God/prophet/messenger/the Messiah is what leads to hatred, fanaticism, and violence. Focus on the message, not the messenger, and become the messenger yourself. It is pointless to worship any authority figures. It is the same as worshiping the idols. Connect and merge with the consciousness of your chosen Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept. If you can connect and merge with the consciousness of an Avatar, you should be able to know everything he/she knows without reading a single book. If you can connect and merge with the consciousness of a guru, why not connect and merge with all true Avatars and/or different aspects of the Universal Consciousness (the four elements)? If you cannot connect, how can you BE the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and all-loving Universal Self? And if you cannot BE Brahman, how then can you claim to be the Universal Self?

“One’s buddhahood is one’s essential nature. I don’t want you to worship buddhas, I want you to become buddhas.” – Osho

Muslims are forbidden to, and therefore technically do not worship Muhammad as a God or a Son of God. But their imitating of Mohammed and their actions in many ways is Muhammad worship.

Attachment to the physical body and worship of a swami/son of God/prophet/messenger/the Messiah is idolatrous and leads to delusions: (1) My messenger is better than your messenger; God sent his only son and then had a vasectomy; (2) our white, tall, blond haired, blue-eyed son of God from Hitler’s Lebensborn program is superior to your sages; (3) God sent his last prophet. He cannot send anymore. No more flights coming from Heaven to Earth due to safety concerns, at risk of being shot down by American drones; (4) only our swami is an incarnation of God in human form and can perform miracles. Your son of God is only a partial incarnation and there is no evidence to verify that miracles happened, and so on.

It’s not a pissing contest. It’s 2016. It’s time to grow up.

“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.” – Marie Curie

Present moment/ CHAPTER 18

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha

“As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.” – Buddha

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” – Buddha

Only when you are completely free from the past, and not worried about the future or using the present as a means to the future and are completely in the present moment, is it possible to perceive infinity, eternity and Unity.

“If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.” – Lao Tzu

“I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” – Albert Einstein

“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” – Buddha

If everything you do is for the future goal or benefit, then you are in the future. All your past went into thinking of the future. All your present is going into thinking of the future and the future will go into thinking of the future. Here, within our temporal realm, neither past nor future can exist in this finite present moment (finite now). In this finite now, past is only a function of memory and future is only in our creative imagination. You missed out on being in the present, in being in the moment—in being here and now. When did you actually live? You only lived in a dream, in the imagination of a future that does not exist.

Happiness is available right now. If you are waiting all week for Friday, all year for summer, waiting until the kids grow up, waiting until retirement to be happy—you are not going to make it. Do not postpone for tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is maya (mental delusion).

The future takes care of itself so long as you are fully conscious in the present moment. Live each day as if it was your last day on Earth. Animals and birds live in the present moment. Children live in the present moment. Live in the present moment. When you are in the present, you are silent. Be here now! Be in the moment. Be in the now.

We cannot change the events of the past. It is only here, within the now, that we have absolute power over who we are and what we do. In spirituality, there is only one aspect of time that has true relevance, and that is the present moment or now.

This finite now is the product of a past which no longer exists except as the body of the present. And the future hinges on the present as unrealized potential. What we do with the present is what determines the future. The future is created by what transpires within the finite now. With our free will, we can decide right now how we will act, and it is these temporal decisions that create our future.

“For the future is in your hands; tomorrow can be shaped by today, though today has already been shaped by yesterday.” – Sai Baba

Temporal finite now is our doorway, if you will, to the eternal now. From an eternal perspective, all of time (past, present and future) exists simultaneously and wholly. From an eternal perspective, the multi-dimensionally infinite time is perceived as a unified Now. From an eternal perspective, the whole of “time” simply IS, all at once.

In the physical realm, we cannot (regardless of what the scientists believe) go back and forth in time with our physical bodies—all we can experience with our physical bodies is a very limited present moment.

Learn how to hold these opposite (eternal and temporal) perspectives simultaneously.

Suffering/ CHAPTER 19

“Life is suffering.” “No one saves us but ourselves. We ourselves must walk the path.” – Buddha

Buddha refused to express an opinion on God, completely rejected pseudo-Advaita and stated that questions on the origin of the Universe are not ultimately useful for ending human suffering. Because believing without understanding is conditioning. Conditioning is not your discovery. Know yourself (Atman) before you seek to understand the origin of the Universe and the nature of the Universal Consciousness/ Brahman/Eternal Tao/Nothingness.

We incarnate to learn and to transform ourselves. This takes all kinds of experiences, including horrible death and suffering. This world of ours turns out enough pain, disappointment, frustration, grief and heartbreak to satisfy anyone’s need for suffering. But one always has the choice between “suffering” and taking an entirely different, self-empowering attitude toward an experience. Suffering teaches us lessons that we have not been able to otherwise learn through more pleasant means. Suffering on the material plane is a great teacher. The opposite of “suffering” is acceptance and adaptation/transformation.

An individual who has achieved their Elemental balance will accept a difficult or painful situation, as it is, and then craft a conscious response. By adapting to what is, as it is, the balanced individual can eliminate the internalized pain and reach into the heart of the matter, thus transforming a normally disruptive situation into a positive event. This does not mean that life becomes a series of events that don’t touch you deeply; rather, you are simply enabled to cope with difficult and unpleasant circumstances. Actually, I’d say that the balanced individual feels things MORE deeply, because these feelings have been made conscious things by the process of equilibration.

“It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

Suffering is pandemic. Injustice is everywhere. A great deal of the suffering which humanity undergoes is totally unnecessary. It is inflicted by humans on humans. All the problems we face today—wars, environmental destruction/deforestation, extinction of species, pollution, poverty, hunger, and so on—are human-created problems.

People inflict suffering on others in the selfish pursuit of extreme materialism (money, power, pleasure and so on). A few control the lives of many with the intent of keeping themselves in power rather than bestowing any benefit. This world is run by a few materialistic, power-hungry, profits-over-people strong individuals who own the big banks, corporations and the media. The so-called “privileged elite” are dictating the way that the world around us works.

You can individually live in peace and manifest love, but until those who inflict suffering on others learn to live in peace and manifest love, we will all suffer. At a personal level, we can change ourselves and live in harmony with nature, yet still we all experience the negative effects our species has wrought upon our environment. EVERY person alive today faces disaster—having done “spiritual work” does not enable any one to avoid the worsening situation. Each must still breathe the polluted air, drink the poisoned water and eat the toxic food, if you are fortunate enough to have access to food and water (about 25,000 people die daily from hunger)! “Spiritual work” makes no difference in this regard.

What is happening today and the horrors to come in the near future are our human collective fate, caused directly by our past and present actions. We all are responsible. This is an aspect of our human “group/collective karma.” One is not released from the consequences of the group karma merely by performing individual “spiritual work.” If we truly wish to see the end of this, we must as a WHOLE people change the manner in which we treat each other and the environment. We are all in this together. We share a common destiny. If we cannot work together and solve the world’s problems, we will all suffer the consequences.

All we can do is our part and actively promote behaviour change and encourage people to engage in Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self.

Compassion/ CHAPTER 20

“All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.” – Chief Seattle (Native American)

“Like a mother who protects her child, her only child, with her own life, one should cultivate a heart of unlimited love and compassion towards all living beings.” – Buddha

“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

“All beings wish for happiness, so extend your compassion to all.” – Buddha

“For thousands of years religions have existed, but compassion is still a dream. We have not been able to create a world that knows what love is, friendship is, brotherhood is.” – Osho

Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness is imminent in (“remaining within; inherent; abiding within”) every single atom and in the vacuum of this Universe. Divinity is embodied in all living beings. All life is essentially interrelated and interconnected. All living beings should be considered sacred and be respected. Human beings must extend the field of love and compassion until it encompasses the entire Universe. The heart with love and compassion is the temple of God/Brahman.

Compassion for another is first the recognition of how much alike you are, and then the love you feel for your own self pours forth into the one you are like because of your commonality. As the individual consciousness expands and merges with Universal Consciousness, one experiences commonality with everything, everyone, everywhere, and everywhen.

Without love and compassion, humanity will perish. Love all and help all. Reduce the suffering of all living beings. Compassion must be a spontaneous act without the egotistical feeling “I am doing this.” It should be a heart-to-heart connection. There is no other. There is only you.

The most beautiful, compassionate people are those who have known pain, suffering, loss, defeat, and struggle, and have found their way out of it by realising their Divine Self.

Compassion is a positive quality, but over-compassion is not. We also need to allow our fellow humans/fellow travellers to learn their hard lessons. Extend that compassion to letting them find their own way and make their own mistakes.

We cannot ensure that others learn their lessons how we see fit—that is between them and Brahman/Tao. We cannot prevent another from learning things the hard way, no matter how much we want for their ascent to be an easy one. This desire is short-sighted, for truly it is the harder lessons that teach us the most.

Self-enquiry/ CHAPTER 21

“One should enquire ‘Who am I? what is this world? what is the reality behind all these?” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.32, v.21

“Man, know yourself…and you shalt know the gods.” – Temples of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

“When you know who you are; when your mission is clear and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart; no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive.” – Chief Seattle (Native American)

“Know thyself.” – Socrates (469 BC – 399 BC)

“Know thyself, and thou shalt know the Universe and God.” – Pythagoras (570 BC – 495 BC)

“Where Are We? Who Are We?” – Carl Sagan

Self-enquiry (ātma-vicāra in Sanskrit ) is based on a Hindu philosophy that has its origins in the ancient teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads and other Hindu scriptures. It is not a separate path. It is part of the one true universal path. Concentrating on one thought leads to no thoughts (emptiness of mind). Emptiness of mind leads to self-enquiry. Different methods are practiced at different stages on the path to Self/Brahman/Eternal Tao. Some methods are practiced simultaneously.

“The source from which existing things derive their existence is also that to which they return at their destruction.” – Anaximander

Self-enquiry is an inner hunger—a hunger of the soul/ heart/Atman to unite with the Source /Brahman/Eternal Tao. It is an inner hunger, inner urge, a hunger of the Atman to know itself. The individual self (Atman) enquires the Brahman-Self spontaneously “Who am I?” and realises it is part of Brahman. That’s all there is to it. But unless your individual awareness (Atman) merges with infinite universal awareness (Brahman), you are NOT Brahman-Self. You are just your individual self.

Here, within our temporal realm, you are only Atman-self. You can be at-one-with Brahman. You are not literally Brahman-Self in this temporal realm.

Self-enquiry is not possible if you are already in the mind. Only mind-enquiry is possible if you are already in the mind. Mind-enquiry leads to delusion and madness. First you must empty your mind. This is the fundamental difference between pseudo/neo-Advaita, and ancient Advaita. The focus should be on emptiness or vacancy of mind.

Self-enquiry is not something you do. It happens spontaneously. If you tell people to enquiry, it becomes a mind-enquiry. If you tell people to empty their mind, self-enquiry follows spontaneously. This is why in Buddhism, the whole focus is on emptiness of mind.

Self-enquiry is not something you do. Mind-enquiry is something you shouldn’t do.

If you have already experienced the subtle Self-enquiry (“Who am I?”), move on to merge with the Source/Brahman/ Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness.

“There is a road in the hearts of all of us, hidden and seldom traveled, which leads to an unknown, secret place.” – Chief Luther Standing Bear (Native American)

When you search with all your heart/soul for the formless Brahman, you will find yourself first. When you search for yourself, you will eventually perceive the formless Brahman.

The two most important experiences in your life are the feeling of inner urge to know your true self…and the experience when you merge with the Universal Self.

If you are not doing what your soul loves most, you are wasting your precious time.

There is some not-THING incredible waiting to be discovered by your soul/heart.

One who perceives the Source/Nothingness from which one emerged from and the infinity and eternity in which one is engulfed in, knows oneself (Atman-self).

If you start with Self enquiry “who am I”, it should end in “I am that. I am” and finally Being “that”. This is goal of life.

“There are four things in which every man must interest himself: Who am I? Wherefrom have I come? Whither am I going? How long shall I be here?” – Sai Baba

“It is part of human nature that man desires to reach the presence of the Almighty, to see Him and be ever with Him, for deep within the human heart is the urge to reach the place from which he has come, to attain the joy he has lost, the glory which he has missed. Man is himself Divine and so it is a matter of the deep calling unto the deep, of the part calling for the whole.” – Sai Baba

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin talk about anti-mind and self-enquiry, but their whole talk is of the mind. They say, “Be against the mind,” but whatsoever they say is coming from the mind/conditioned mind-self/ false ego.

Thinking “I am not thinking” is still thinking, and that is not an emptiness or vacancy of mind. Thinking “I am the Self” is still the mind. Thinking “I am not the mind and body” is still the mind. Thinking “The Self is already realized” is still the mind. Mind enquiring the mind “Who am I?” only produces more mind. Mind telling mind is not the emptiness of mind.

It is easy for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a man with mind (identifying with mind) to enter the realm of consciousness/awareness and merge with the Universal Consciousness.

“Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning.” – Osho

“As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm. Microcosm refers to the individual and macrocosm to the aggregate or sum total. One who knows his Self knows all. Today’s man tries to know everything about the world. He feels proud that he knows everything. But he forgets that he does not know himself.” – Sai Baba

“The greatest wisdom is to get to know oneself.” – Galileo Galilei

Within yourself/ CHAPTER 22

“All is within yourself. Know your most inward self and look for what corresponds with it in nature.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” – Buddha

The kingdom of Brahman/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Eternal Tao is also within you, not only within you. Therefore, you are potentially everything. The Guru/Master is within you. The core self is within you. The kingdom of heaven is within you. The four elements are also within you. The goal is within you. Bliss, happiness, peace, divinity, grace, love, freedom, security, contentment, harmony, wisdom, beauty, truth, guidance, all the answers and everything else is within you.

“Man is suffering, because he is not aware of the treasure he has in himself. Like a beggar ignorant of the millions hidden under the floor of his hovel, he is suffering dire misery.” – Sai Baba

In spirituality, the concept “within” doesn’t mean something within your physical body or skull. And it has nothing to do with how the neurons in the brain look. “Within” means a state of consciousness. Happiness and unhappiness are within you. It takes self-transformation to be happy from being unhappy. Happiness was your original state, but most people have become unhappy. Find out the root cause of unhappiness and transform these negative qualities into the positive. Without such transformation, you remain the same old unhappy self. Become happy again.

The key is within you. Shift the focus of attention from outside to within. Look within. Seek within. Turn within. Dive deeply within yourself, self-enquire within “Who am I?” and discover yourself. Realise your Atman-self within you. Every human being can discover the answer to any question by looking within.

Until you are at peace within, you will not find peace outside. Until you find happiness, contentment, harmony, guidance, bliss, love, and the divine within, you will not find them outside.

“One who is able to withdraw his senses from sense objects, as the tortoise draws its limbs within the shell, is firmly fixed in perfect consciousness.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.58)

“Even as birds, O beloved, return to their tree for rest, thus all things find their rest in Atman, the Supreme Spirit. All things find their final peace in their inmost Self, the Spirit.” – Upanishads

Looking within, take refuge in your own true home, within you, and become self-dependent and free. When you are so deeply entrenched within, then nothing perturbs you—then you are truly free. Nothing perturbs the Enlightened/Self-realised one. Such a being does not dwell in the outside world of the physical senses and is not dependent on any outside factor. His/her attention is centred within. Only when you go deep within and touch your inner being, can you embrace the inner being of others.

“Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu

Since space exploration began in 1957, we have explored every type of object in the solar system and in outer space. But only a very few souls have travelled within themselves to the inner moon and the inner solar system (different state of consciousness). The journey to the inner realm and the discovery of its treasures (Enlightenment/Self-realisation) are far more important than engineering feats.

The entire Universe and everyone is within Brahman/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/ Eternal Tao and part of Brahman is also within everything and everyone. Brahman is imminent in every single atom and vacuum of this Universe. The real treasure is within you. The treasure of all treasures is within you.

It is only after looking within and experiencing the Atman within that one will be able to perceive the Atman and Brahman in everything.

Brahman/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Eternal Tao is in all beings, but most people are far from being Brahman, and that is why they suffer.

What is within Nature is also within you. What is within you is also within Nature. Look within yourself and deep within Nature simultaneously. The Universe is out there even for the Enlightened/Self-realised human beings. We are Atman beings, NOT Brahman beings. No one can comprehend infinity and eternity. It is incomprehensible.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: God is within, not outside.
HB: Where?
PA: In my awareness, inside my skull, or maybe in my chest region, too. There’s nothing out there. The Universe is not out there. It is within.
HB: What about India’s Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) spacecraft, on the Red Planet right now?
PA: It is a blasphemy in nondualism. We do not believe that the Red Planet is out there, so how can you send a spacecraft there?
HB: I am sitting here outside your body and your consciousness. So where am I in your non-duality world?
PA: Not real, just an imagination, just some image/appearance or thought in my awareness.
HB: Where was this belief when you were inside your mother’s womb?
PA: She is not real anymore. She is also just an imagination, just some image/appearance or thought in my awareness.
HB: If God is within you and within me, why is there a discontinuity?
PA: I don’t know. It’s not in the books I read.
HB: That’s the problem, too much book learning and logical fallacies. Appearance implies a subject-object duality. Enquire to whom is the appearance. And wake up from your sleep.

“Do not try to avoid contact with others or with external nature. Develop a wider, a universal outlook. Look upon external nature as the vestment of God; it is the expression of the Will of God, it is the manifestation of His glory, His power, His might, His majesty. See these in every blade of grass, in every floral petal, every slice of fruit. Learn lessons from the river, the mountains, the star and the sky.” – Sai Baba

Self-transformation/ CHAPTER 23

“He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” – Aristotle

“Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.” – Buddha

Live your life in such a way that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Human beings share a common heritage with all other species. For most of our history, people lived as clan-living hunter-foragers. Most people still live with the ingrained mentality of Stone Age hunter-gatherers, traits that made survival possible then. In other words, it is hardwired. That said, not all people are alike underneath. Genetic inheritance and the different environmental factors to which a person is subjected from birth to death play a vital and important role in human development. It is genetic inheritance and nurture (personal experiences and culture). Negative character traits are residual karma from our animal past.

Fear rules the lives of most people. People even fear the opinions of others. Fear is the main source of hate, cruelty, separation, belief, delusion…Fear can be one of the most destructive emotions. If you give in to your fears, you won’t be able to listen to your gut and follow your heart. It takes courage to do creative or exciting or experimental things. To overcome your personal fears through Self-transformation or character development is one of the most important undertakings of your life.

“Courage is the first of human virtues because it makes all others possible.” – Aristotle

Courage is the opposite of fear. Courage is the triumph over fear. Courage is one of the most important of all the virtues. It takes courage to be your true self. It takes a lot of courage to stand up for what’s right. It takes a lot of courage to stand up against tyranny and evildoers.

The process of spiritual initiation begins with the examination and transformation of the personality or character. Character development alone leads to a large part of the natural awakening.

Your present character is the product of your total life experience. With character transformation, we replace our unconsciously formed patterns of behaviour with consciously chosen, positive alternatives that fulfil us. The personality structure becomes a matter of conscious choice, over which we exercise a determining power, instead of a subconscious habit over which we have no power. One must make a habit of the positive conscious response instead of the negative subconscious reaction.

“Just as a tree, though cut down, sprouts up again if its roots remain uncut and firm, even so, until the craving that lies dormant is rooted out, suffering springs up again and again.” – Buddha

“With gentleness overcome anger. With generosity overcome meanness. With truth overcome deceit.” – Buddha

A spiritual training requires that we unlearn many of the things taught us by our culture/society. Much of the work of self-transformation is about consciously reprogramming your own subconscious mind. You simply develop new, more appropriate habits that are rooted in conscious choices. Just like developing any new habit, this takes time, patience and persistence—and passion.

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.” – Buddha

Negative character traits (most types of fear, lust, anger, greed, jealousy, insecurity, depression, hatred, pride, etc.) are programmed/conditioned by society. Much of our subconscious content is the direct product of society and family. Transform all your negative character traits into positive ones.

Once the root of the problem is defined, then craft a phrase that affirms a positive alternative, phrased in the present tense and in a positive manner (i.e., without the word “not”). For example, with fear, an appropriate phase then might be something like, “I am fearless.” Back it with action; be fearless. The real trick with self-change is to combine an affirmation with direct action. Persistent effort over time is what permanently changes a person’s character.

The only way to stop identifying with these negative character traits is to overcome it. This is just basic psychology. Just being the observer is not enough. Happiness can be observed. Unhappiness can be observed, but don’t you want to be happy? Addictions can be observed, but don’t you want to overcome them? Overcome your excessive animal instincts through self-transformation.

Most religious/spiritual people just seek too much information and are not at all interested in self-transformation/self-change. It is the self-transformation that really matters. True spirituality is all practical, not book learning (memorising and repeating like a parrot). Virtue is the sign of the wise. Self-transformation or character development is more important than mere intellectual knowledge of modern education.

Without character transformation or character development, true emptiness of mind is impossible. Without emptiness of mind, complete surrender is impossible.

Self-realisation doesn’t mean you are not a person with personality, it means you are not merely a person. You are still a human being with a positive personality that clearly expresses and reflects your true Divine Self, the “eternal being”. You are a multi-dimensional (physical, astral, mental, eternal or akashic, nondual) being. This is the true non-duality.

Usually, when people speak of the “ego”, they’re really referring to the negative aspects of the personality of which they are ashamed. But as the spiritual aspirant transforms those negative aspects through the work of character transformation, a new sense of the self emerges (the true “I”). The spiritual aspirant doesn’t “eradicate” the ego/self. Instead, he/she transforms the small ego of the personality with all its negative aspects into something positive and beneficial.

Non-self refers to negative character traits alone. It has nothing to do with the structure of our infinite Universe.

Sacrifice your animality, your negative character traits, not actual sacrificial animals. Sacrifice your animal characteristics and end the animal sacrifice.

Transmute vice into virtue. Success in penetrating the spiritual mysteries requires a balanced character. With an unbalanced character, the inner door closes and spiritual progress is blocked. This is just a fact of Nature/Universal Legality. As we say in Alchemy, “You will not transmute anything (Lead to Gold) unless you transmute yourself first.”

According to the Hadith, Muhammad was a violent man. Does Mohamed meet the criteria for Prophethood? The difference between black magician and white magician is the character of the individual and the causation. You cannot just leave your negative character trait to its destiny and believe you are already “THAT/Self/God”. It doesn’t work like that.

Fanatical religions in their current form can be classed as black magic. Religion/magick/spirituality in itself is neutral, but can be used for good or evil by the practitioner. Like a knife, it can be used to cut a slice of bread, or to kill. It is the practitioner that can be classed as Satan, Evil, the Devil, Fallen angel or the Black magician because of his/her negative character traits.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)

PA1: I have been with you on this direct path for the last 2 years. But now I am suffering from depression. You say I am already that (Eternal being) but my doctor says I am suffering from suffering from schizophrenia. I want to get better. I just want be normal again.
PA2: The one who says, ‘I want to get better,’ leave that one alone and stay as the pure awareness, the Self. The one who is saying, ‘Please help me to stop this,’ is itself the cause of all this. You have to become completely empty of ‘you’.

PA: It can be observed, so it cannot be you as the observer must be prior to what is observed.
HB: Happy/blissful self is the real self, but that can also be observed. You don’t understand basic psychology.

PA1: Dude, I have severe diarrhoea.
PA2: That’s also watched.
PA1: What? There is no privacy here. By whom?
PA2: Self.
PA1: You can watch all you want, but I want to get better.
PA2: The one who says, ‘I want to get better,’ leave that one alone and stay as the pure awareness, the Self. The one who is saying, ‘Please help me to stop this,’ is itself the cause of all this. You have to become completely empty of ‘you’.
PA1: You wouldn’t talk like this if you were the one suffering right now. This nondoodle-Advaita is not practical, is it?

HB: Just take some anti-diarrheal medications and it will be fine in a few hours. For all the other problems, self-transformation or character development is the only solution. Don’t listen to these meaningless nondoodle delusions.

 

Patience/ CHAPTER 24

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” – Aristotle

“The greatest prayer is patience.” – Buddha

Everything takes time. One must be patient. Without patience, there is frustration. You don’t get the chicken by smashing the egg, only by hatching the egg. Everything takes time in this temporal physical realm. Nature does not hurry. Haste only makes waste.

“True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awaking of consciousness which goes through successive stages.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt).

“…In himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.” – The Temple of Luxor,1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

There is no such thing as a direct path. You cannot attain Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self with logical tricks. Pseudo/neo-Advaitin’s direct path is nothing but bypassing tricks and logical fallacies. They are still their personal self, falsely claiming to be the Brahman-Self. They are fooling themselves and others. Reality/Consciousness/Self is not a one dimension singularity. It is multidimensional (physical and nonphysical (astral, mental, eternal or akashic, nondual)) and an infinite cycle. The undifferentiated Universal Consciousness is just a part of that reality. Brahman includes EVERY thing—who, what, when, where, and why—simultaneously. This is the multi-dimensionally infinite Unity of BEing. Pseudo/neo-Advaita is nothing but meaningless statement fallacy. It is nonsense like the question ‘What is the colour of jealousy’ or ‘How tall is your thought’? Pseudo/neo-Advaitia is what we call ‘mind’. Pseudo/neo-Advaitia is all just meaningless conceptual nonsense. They have been deceived by their own mind.

The 10 commandments of Logic:

1) Thou shall not attack the person’s character, but the argument. (Ad hominem)
2) Thou shall not misrepresent or exaggerate a person’s argument in order to make them easier to attack. (Straw man fallacy)
3) Thou shall not use small numbers to represent the whole. (Hasty generalization)
4) Thou shall not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true. (Begging the question)
5) Thou shall not claim that because something occurred before, it must be the cause. (Post Hoc/False cause)
6. Thou shall not reduce the argument down to two possibilities. (False dichotomy)
7. Thou shall not argue that because of our ignorance, claim must be true or false. (Ad ignorantum)
8. Thou shall not lay the burden of proof onto him that is questioning the claim. (Burden of proof reversal)
9. Thou shall not assume “this”follows “that”when it has no logical connection. (Non sequitur)
10. Thou shall not caim that because a premise is popular, therefore it must be true. (Bandwagon fallacy)

No one can give you a shortcut to Enlightenment/Self-realisation, because there is no shortcut to Enlightenment/Self-realisation. It is an evolutionary process. Buddha, for example, spent six years in deep meditation. Bodhidharma spent nine years in a mountain cave meditating.

Reaching the inner/non-physical realm takes patient, and persistent effort. One’s relationship with the non-physical realm takes time to mature, so rushing in only slows down the process. The way of spirituality is one of walking slower so as to match nature’s pace. Adopt the pace of nature. It takes time, perseverance, patience, endurance, commitment and a firm will. It is a gradual process, one step at a time. We must unlearn our impatience, our mad dash to do everything as quickly and painlessly as possible. This trait runs counter to nature.

We each progress at the rate we are supposed to. The one who advances quickly is no better than the one who progresses slowly.

The only way that true patience is possible is if there is an underlying faith that the goal is ultimately attainable.

One can only progress step by step. You cannot jump ahead. In order to progress to the next step, one must first master the exercises in the present step. Each step depends upon what is “mastered” in the previous steps and each step furthers what you have learned in the previous steps.

“One can advance only step by step and there is the danger of slipping down two steps when you climb one.” – Sai Baba

Without the slow, patient effort necessary to enter the subtle higher realm of awareness through meditation, it can lead the unwary into a murky realm of confusion and fantasy. Too many followers of the present rush of spiritual fads have fallen into exactly this kind of trap. Without a foundation in personal experience of the universal order, the mind can run (as so many minds have run) off into Illusionism, quantum woo woo, obsession or unrecognized fantasy. Illusionism is the grand delusion.

“The source from which existing things derive their existence is also that to which they return at their destruction.” – Anaximander

The stated goal of spirituality is the union of the Atman with Brahman. The impact of a drop of water in the ocean is a common analogy for the Atman’s journey and union with Brahman.

“This (goal of spirituality) is not meant for everybody. For, with majority of mankind the ego is a thing which cannot be shaken off in this life, or any other life in the near future.” – Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

“Everything is only a concoction of time, space and energy. All else is the trite talk of people who dislike the effort of sadhana which takes them to the Self. This talk is based on their dense ignorance of the Self. Only by persistent practice and experience of sadhana, can one arrive at the truth” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.24, v.31

“The yogi, who diligently strives, becomes completely free from all imperfections after gradually perfecting through many incarnations, and reaches the Supreme Abode.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.45)

Q&A
Q: How many dimensions/realms are there? And what are they?
A: 4 but it can be subdivided into 11. Physical, Astral, Mental (7 states) and Eternal (divided and nondual).

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin Satsang
PA1: Last year, I took a course to become a diving instructor. This year, I am here to discover/reach Self-realisation on the direct path. How long does it take?
PA2: Self is already realised. Time is an illusion. There is nothing to practice. How can I meditate for 40 minutes when time is an illusion? When I try to meditate, I fall asleep. Therefore, sleeping must be the enlightened state.
PA1: This is faster than McDonald’s drive-thru service. How long did it take you?
PA2: Three years.
PA1: Then why do you say time is an illusion?

HB: You were late for the Satsang and you babble for hours. Therefore time must be real. Wake up you dotards.

De-hypnotize/decondition yourself from pseudo/neo-Advaita babbling such as no seeking, no reaching, no effort, no path, no practice, no time (but it took them three years), Self is already realised, etc. It stems from the fanatical religious bypassing conditionings. One day you will wake up, and there won’t be any more time for true spirituality because you are dreaming it away on spiritual/religious delusions.

Science/ CHAPTER 25

“There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That’s perfectly all right; they’re the aperture to finding out what’s right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny.” – Carl Sagan

Scientists do not claim to know everything about the Universe. Science is a quest for truth based on evidence alone. Science is ever expanding and dynamic. Old theories are replaced with new ones whenever there is better evidence. No scientist has claimed to be an agent of any force and asked people to follow him. No two science groups ever killed each other to prove their theories right. Science never says those who don’t believe in it will be punished. Had science not existed, no one would know about the galaxies, planetary systems, satellites, atomic structure, or anything invisible to the naked eye. We would still believe that the Earth is flat and 6,000 years old. No one would know about microorganisms. We would still only pray to God instead of treating diseases by consulting a doctor. We would never know about living beings like dinosaurs that roamed the Earth millions of years ago.

“I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale.” – Marie Curie

“Organized religion tried to kill science—they could not, because truth cannot be killed. And science was truer, as far as the physical world is concerned, than religion. In fact religion has no authority to say anything about the physical world. If there had been a Jesus, he would simply have said: ‘About the physical, listen to science.’ If a Buddha was there he would have said: ‘Listen to science.’” – Osho

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” – Max Planck

The Holy Grail of science, or the so-called Theory of Everything/the Grand Unified Theory, will never be found. Some of the mysteries of the Universe will never be solved by science. Our clever theorists are wasting precious time and resources on these meaningless pursuits. Scientists will never solve all the mysteries of the Universe until they begin to study the non-physical phenomena. Some of the mysteries relevant to our happiness and meaning of life can only be solved through spiritual means.

“When we understand every single secret of the Universe, there will still be left the eternal mystery of the human heart.” – Wittgenstein

“The human consciousness is a great puzzle….The origin of the Universe is another mystery, but physicists are working on it. Maybe one day we’ll understand it…” – Richard Dawkins

Darwin’s “Theory of Evolution” explains the transformations of species, not the origin of life. Science just says life sprang from lifeless matter (spontaneous generation). What caused the Big Bang is unknown, and many mysteries of the Universe still remain unsolved.

The problem with science is that it does not provide the answers most people are seeking—namely the meaning and purpose of life. Science is not ultimately useful for ending inner human suffering. The science-god has no answer to these deep inner questions. Science doesn’t understand anything about deep meditation, Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

True spiritually is very deep. Science does not yet recognise the phenomenon of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Consciousness. Science does not yet understand the nature of miraculous abilities. Miraculous abilities reveal many hidden secrets of nature that science should be interested in.

Scientists are searching among matter for that which only exists in the root of matter—the Universal Consciousness. At the root of this physical Universe is the formless Universal Consciousness or Nothingness. The root of the already manifested is in the unmanifested.

The physical realm is the outer crust, so to speak, of the Universe, and where the spiritual essence is the central core. Our physical senses are limited, but our subtle senses can perceive infinity, eternity, and Unity.

Spirituality/Magic is the subtle realm of nature. Perceive deep into Nature.

Science can explain the physical realm, but it cannot explain consciousness. It’s a paradox— without Universal Consciousness/ Brahman/Eternal Tao, there would be no physical realm or science.

“For more than 200 years, materialists have promised that science will eventually explain everything in terms of physics and chemistry. Believers are sustained by the faith that scientific discoveries will justify their beliefs. The philosopher of science Karl Popper called this stance ‘promissory materialism’ because it depends on issuing promissory notes for discoveries not yet made. Despite all the achievements of science and technology, materialism is now facing a credibility crunch that was unimaginable in the 20th century.” – Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (scientist for more than 40 years, having studied at Cambridge and Harvard)

The answers already exist in spirituality known to very few individuals. Modern-day science will never solve these mysteries. When it does, it won’t be science as we know it today, but it will become a universal spirituality.

“Bad religion is arrogant, self-righteous, dogmatic and intolerant. And so is bad science. But unlike religious fundamentalists, scientific fundamentalists do not realize that their opinions are based on faith. They think they know the truth.” – Dr. Rupert Sheldrake

Science is the pursuit of the truth. But science doesn’t (yet) understand the connection between the Universal Consciousness and our physical Universe. Science without universal spirituality is only half-truth. The universal spirituality is the whole truth because science is already part of it. Albert Einstein said, “An inner voice tells me that it (quantum mechanics) is not yet the real thing…it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. Einstein was right. Quantum mechanics in science has nothing to do with consciousness and it does not bridge the gulf between science and spirituality.

“You must warn people not to make the intellect their God.” – Albert Einstein

“Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.” – Nikola Tesla

“It’s like building the puzzle of knowledge with puzzle pieces of data. You only know where each piece goes according to what you’ve already pieced together. But there are many WAYS the puzzle fits together. You only could know you’re building the WRONG puzzle when you find out the last piece doesn’t fit.” – Natalie Schacht

Science is limited to logic, to what is rational. But logic in itself is limited.

Modern-day “science” is just another kind of belief system with dogmatism, conditioning, fundamentalism, and cognitive dissonance. Having faith in scientific dogmas (faith in Scientism) is also blind. Science is just a half–truth, but many people have full faith in it. Modern-day science is incomplete, with contradictions and knowledge gaps. Many scientists now believe in woo science and are incapable of recognizing their own logical fallacies.

“The fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who—in their grudge against traditional religion as the ‘opium of the masses’—cannot hear the music of the spheres.” – Albert Einstein

U.S. Government science managed to convince billions of intelligent people that a minor fire can bring down a massive 47-story steel frame building in 7 seconds at free fall and pulverize in mid-air. Near-freefall collapse violates the laws of physics. This is the biggest trick that science ever pulled on people. Just like that, science managed to also convince billions of people that there is no such thing as miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis).

Science is evolving. There are many superseded or obsolete scientific theories. New discoveries sometimes supersede earlier discoveries. There are many scientific theories that are false or only partially true. Keep an open mind.

To reject and refuse to investigate spirituality, miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis), and the nature of an Avatar because your rational mind cannot understand them is nothing but foolish ignorance.

We do not need more global competition; we need more cooperation and sharing. We don’t need religious leaders; we need more Avatars/Adepts/Buddhas/Siddhas. We do not need intellectual cleverness; we need more humbleness. We do not need dangerous weapons; we need more human beings with miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis). We do not need more science; we need more universal spirituality. We do not need to know more of the physical Universe; we need to understand more of the unseen/non-physical realms.

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” – Albert Einstein

“Spirituality begins where Science ends.” – Sai Baba

The problems of the world remain unsolved. Modern education does not produce Enlightened masters. Charities can help treat symptoms, but only universal spirituality can solve our world’s problem permanently. We should address the root problem and not just treat the symptoms. If you never address the root cause, these symptoms will keep stacking up.

The root cause of our world’s problem is debasing universal spirituality. Your fanatical religions are also against universal spirituality.

Recognize the fallibility and failures of modern-day science and return to the process of true discovery.

10 Scientific Dogmas That Should be Questioned – Dr. Rupert Sheldrake
1. Nature is mechanical – All creatures and systems in nature are but lumbering robots fulfilling a genetically programmed role.
2. Matter is unconscious – Stars, plants, animals, water, etc., are just material things and therefore do not and cannot have consciousness.
3. The laws of nature are fixed – This is the idea that natural laws were fixed at the moment of the Big Bang, and will continue to be constant until the end of time. The habits of nature do not evolve.
4. The total amount of matter and energy is the same
5. Nature is purposeless – There is no design in nature, and the evolutionary process is merely a mechanical function. There is no higher purpose.
6. Biological heredity – The traits of a species are composed of a physical material that resides in the genes.
7. Memories are stored inside of the brain as material traces – Stored somewhere in the proteins and nerve endings are the memories of the mind. Like a physical filing cabinet.
8. The mind is inside the head – The mind is physically bound to the head and brain in some way.
9. Psychic phenomenon, like telepathy, is impossible – Thoughts have no effect on the outside world because the mind is inside the head.
10. Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that works – It is merely chance or the placebo effect if a natural remedy or other healing practice seems to affect physical healing.

“I have been a scientist for more than 40 years, having studied at Cambridge and Harvard. I researched and taught at Cambridge University, was a research fellow of the Royal Society, and have more than 80 publications in peer reviewed journals. I am strongly pro-science.” – Rupert Sheldrake

We are Universal consciousness/ CHAPTER 26

“Each one of us is part of the soul of the universe.” – Plotinus

All life is essentially interrelated and interconnected—to each other, biologically. To the planets, chemically. To the sun and other stars, atomically. We are made of star stuff, and therefore part of the Universe is also within us.

We are just one of 8.74 million species on Earth. Every atom in your body was once inside a star that exploded. You are literally stardust!

We emerged from the same source. Humanity is one family. We are the citizens of the planet. All human beings have an equal claim to land and natural resources.

“The Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Then nothingness is infinitely intelligent!” – Stephen Hawking.

Stephen Hawking is NOT saying the nothingness is literally nothing. He is saying it is omniscient.

This infinitely intelligent nothingness is the All-Pervading Consciousness/Eternal Tao/ Brahman.

Matter is condensed Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Therefore, we are not atoms; we are Universal Consciousness.

“Crazy Horse dreamed and went into the world where there is nothing but the spirits of all things. That is the real world that is behind this one, and everything we see here is something like a shadow from that one.” – Black Elk (Native American)

There is a consciousness component (spirit) to every natural physical form (shadow, symbolically speaking) in nature. The physical form is literally condensed spirit. The physical form of a tree is the condensed spirit of the tree. The physical form of planet Earth is the condensed spirit of planet Earth, and so on. The infinite physical Universe is condensed Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. The visible physical Universe is a manifestation of Brahman itself. The physical Universe is the body/form of Brahman.

Everything in nature is an expression of the Divine/Brahman/Eternal Tao. A tree is an expression of Brahman. A human being is an expression of Brahman. The Andromeda Galaxy is an expression of Brahman.

Every natural form you see in nature/Universe came out of the eternal realm/Nothingness /Brahman like the waves from the ocean. Brahman is also within the trees, apes, birds, planets, stars, galaxies, asteroids, and so on.

The eternal Atman (Paramatman) of every natural form has no beginning and no ending and exists within the eternal realm. It projects/creates Atman (individual self) of every natural form into the temporal realm of space-time.

Paramatman is that from which the physical body and Atman is born, in which it lives and evolves and unto which it reunites/merges.

Blind men and an elephant/ CHAPTER 27

Meditate on the meaning of the parable of the blind men and an elephant. Six blind men, having never been near an elephant, were asked to determine what an elephant looked like by touching different parts of the elephant’s body. The blind man who touched a leg says the elephant is like a pillar; the one who touched the tail says the elephant is like a rope; the one who touched the trunk says the elephant is like a tree branch; the one who touched the belly says the elephant is like a wall; and so on.

The elephant is actually the totality of all these parts, each part touched and described by a different blind man. In the same way, most spiritual teachers/messengers teach their own version of reality or the one universal religion/spirituality from their limited experience and perspective and deny the aspects they don’t understand. Every religion represents just a part of the universal religion/spirituality. Each one is describing only a part of the universal religion/spirituality. No one is describing the totality of it. Therefore, if you want to understand and establish the total picture of the universal religion/spirituality, you must put the pieces of the puzzle together, make a synthesis of the essence of all.

Bruce Lee was the first Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) and considered by many as the “Father” of MMA. Bruce Lee integrated every best aspect of various fighting styles into his and called it no style. We must do the same with religion/spirituality.

“Unless there are human beings with three arms and four legs, unless we have another group of human beings that are structurally different from us, there can be no different style of fighting.” – Bruce Lee

“Styles tend to not only separate men — because they have their own doctrines and then the doctrine became the gospel truth that you cannot change. But if you do not have a style, if you just say: Well, here I am as a human being, how can I express myself totally and completely? Now, that way you won’t create a style, because style is a crystallization. That way, it’s a process of continuing growth.” – Bruce Lee

All religions are branches of the one universal religion. There is some truth in all religions, like how pieces of a puzzle show you a portion of the larger picture. All religions have the same source and are just expressing the truth from a different perspective. The essence of all religions is one and the same. There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness.

All the religious/spiritual texts are like the incomplete jigsaw puzzle. Fanatical religions in their current form are redundant and irrelevant, a poison to the soul. It doesn’t make sense because there are pieces to the puzzle that are missing. You must put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Buddhism is the core of every religion, even though it was already a part of Sanatana Dharma. You can either find the missing pieces through your own self-revelation or from science, spirituality, Buddhism, and/or other religions. We must develop/embody the missing pieces in our lives to become true human beings.

True philosophy, religion, science, spirituality, mysticism, and Maha siddhis/miracles/magick/magic (not tricks) are not separate units, but an integral part of the one true universal religion/spirituality. There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness.

There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness.
There is only one language, the language of true meaning.
There is only one family, the family of humanity.
There is only one law, the law of cause and effect.
There is only one Self/Brahman/Eternal Tao. The Self is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and universal-love.
There is only one goal: to merge with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. “I AM” is the experience of merging with Brahman.

Preoccupied with a single tree, you miss the entire forest. Preoccupied with your mind, you don’t feel the astral realm and perceive infinity and eternity. Preoccupied with an infinitesimal part, you miss the totality. Preoccupied with science, you miss the universal spirituality. Preoccupied with your organised religion, you miss the universal spirituality. Try to see everything in its totality.

Humanity is one family, and only ignorance, fear, and delusion creates this division.

Q&A
Q: Why are all people not called to God by the same road?
A: The approach may be different, but the inner transformation is the same since we are all human beings living on the same Universe. True universal spirituality is about the evolution of the individual consciousness as one reaches Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

Modern education/ CHAPTER 28

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” – Aristotle

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” – Albert Einstein

“If you use your mind to study reality, you won’t understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you’ll understand both.” – Bodhidharma

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” – Albert Einstein

“School failed me, and I failed the school. It bored me. The teachers behaved like Feldwebel (sergeants). I wanted to learn what I wanted to know, but they wanted me to learn for the exam. …I felt that my thirst for knowledge was being strangled by my teachers…from the age of twelve I began to suspect authority and distrust teachers.” – Albert Einstein

“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” – Albert Einstein

“You must warn people not to make the intellect their God.” – Albert Einstein

The problems of the world remain unsolved. Modern education does not produce sages or Enlightened masters; it only produces “learned fools.” It has turned people into self-centred machines, mindless consumers of goods and services.

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” – Albert Einstein

Education is the most powerful tool with which you can lift yourself out of poverty, but it must be balanced with spirituality.

Modern education has failed. It doesn’t teach children about meditation and the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. It doesn’t teach people to live in harmony with the Universe and discover the real treasure within themselves. Education without the knowledge of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is false and misleading.

Education must result in the discovery of the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self, the nature of an Avatar, miraculous abilities, and that which is infinite and eternal.

“True education means trying to manifest the inner divinity in man…Many students consider book knowledge as education…Education should also result in the purification of the heart.” –Sai Baba

Conditioning/ CHAPTER 29

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” – Albert Einstein

“We must shift America from a “needs” to a “desires” culture. People must be trained to desire, to want new things, even before the old have been entirely consumed. Man’s desires must overshadow his needs.” – Paul Mazer of Lehman Brothers circa 1930’s

We are constantly bombarded by negativity/evil influences from every direction: television, film, radio, books, magazines, Internet, Facebook, newspapers etc. The media has an influence in virtually every aspect of people’s lives. People’s lives become shaped by them. Media deceives and distracts people. The media is the real black magician.

Modern society tries to condition your subconscious mind. Advertising is big business, and subliminal messages are everywhere. Subliminal messages are known for their power to affect people without a person being aware of them. You are being conditioned by fanatical religions, half-truth science, consumerism, etc. We are bombarded with pseudo-realities fabricated by the media, by governments, and by big corporations. This subliminal information in your subconscious mind is influencing your judgment, behaviour, and attitudes. Your reaction is dependent on this conditioning.

An early exposure to negativities has a deep impact on the subconscious minds of young children.

“The parents, the teachers, the neighbors, the friends—all are continuously giving a shape to your life, a style to your life. If you look into your mind you will find many voices together: your father is speaking, your grandfather is speaking, your mother, your brother, your teachers, your professors. But one thing you will not find there is your voice. Your voice has been completely repressed by other voices. Layer upon layer, you have lost track even of your own voice, of your own self, of your own face. So many masks…” – Osho

“Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent every year to control the public mind.” – Prof. Noam Chomsky

“Under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.” – Albert Einstein

“THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country….We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. …
…that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons—a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million—who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world. …
…We have voluntarily agreed to let an invisible government sift the data and high—spot the outstanding issues so that our field of choice shall be narrowed to practical proportions. From our leaders and the media they use to reach the public, we accept the evidence and the demarcation of issues bearing upon public questions; from some ethical teacher, be it a minister, a favorite essayist, or merely prevailing opinion, we accept a standardized code of social conduct to which we conform most of the time.” – Edward Bernays, the father of modern advertising

Modern-day “science” is just another kind of belief system with dogmatism, conditioning, fundamentalism and cognitive dissonance.

There is overwhelming evidence that 9/11 was a false flag operation. Those who deny it are victim of conditioning and cognitive dissonance. They have been sufficiently brainwashed from an early age that they cannot perceive the obvious truth anymore. Near-freefall collapse violates the laws of physics. This is the biggest trick that U.S. Government science ever pulled on people. In the same way, science managed to also convince billions of people that there is no such thing as miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis). People don’t realize how indoctrinated they have been by mainstream media and society. Foolish people attack an Avatar’s miracles as tricks, but they believe the biggest trick ever pulled on them as real. Realise your own conditioning first.

Delusions (maya) and “Illusionism” have become the norm in the West today. Spirituality has been ‘hijacked’ by fools, fanatics, conmen, and evil. Pseudo-reality has been packaged, marketed, and sold to the masses by those in positions of influence.

Those pseudo/Neo-Advaitins who babble that no effort is necessary, no seeking, nothing to practice, that the body and everything is an illusion, time is an illusion, there is no goal, and say that everybody is already Enlightened (Self is already Realized) are just conditioned and do not have a clue what spirituality really is about. Pseudo/Neo-Advaita is Christianized Advaita by Westerners. This is the worst form of conditioning in spirituality. This false Christian doctrine of Free Grace has infiltrated Advaita. They have been deceived by Satan.

“Every society tries to condition the mind—and conditioning means nothing but hypnosis: forcing authority, law, tradition, religion, scripture…into the innermost unconscious of the child.” – Osho

“Mind is a conditioning. We have become accustomed to thoughts.” – Osho

This cultural programming/conditioning is so deep that people identify with it and defend it. They are not aware of their own conditioning and do not realise that they have to go beyond it.

“Beginning with Santa Claus as a cognitive exercise, a child is encouraged to share the same idea of reality as his peers. Even if that reality is patently invented and ludicrous, belief is encouraged with gifts that support and promote the common cultural lies.” – Chuck Palahniuk

“Conditioning is something forced from the outside upon you against your will, against your consciousness. It is to destroy you, it is to manipulate you.(…)Hence the whole society tries in every possible way to disconnect you from your essential core, and it creates a false, plastic personality around you and it forces you to become identified with it. … The society is interested that you should be more skillful, more productive, and less creative. It wants you to function like a machine, efficiently, but it does not want you to become awakened. It does not want Buddhas and Christs, Socrates, Pythagoras, Lao Tzu.” – Osho

“Every one of you is born a lion, but the society goes on conditioning you, programming your mind as a sheep.” – Osho

The more you become a part of society, the more phony you become. Follow the society up to a point. Live in the Universe, but not of this man-made system.

The root of most fear, desire, lust, anger, greed, insecurity, depression, hatred, and pride is cultural programming/ conditioning/brainwashing. Much of our subconscious content is the direct product of society and family.

This cultural conditioning forms the invisible barrier in experiencing the objective reality. You must be ruthlessly honest with yourself, about yourself. It takes courage and radical self-honesty to challenge your conditioning and find the strength to break away from the past.

All conditionings are not to be discarded or accepted. With character transformation, we replace our conditioning (unconsciously formed patterns of behaviour) with consciously chosen, positive alternatives that fulfil us. The personality structure becomes a matter of conscious choice, over which we exercise a determining power, instead of a subconscious habit over which we have no power.

Much of the work of self-transformation is about consciously reprogramming your own subconscious mind (psyche). You simply develop new, more appropriate habits that are rooted in conscious choices. Just like developing any new habit, this takes time, patience, and persistence—and passion.

Those who are unaware they are conditioned/brainwashed by society will not seek their true self.

“Like a cup, you are full of your own opinions and self assertions. How can I show you Zen unless you empty your cup first?” – Nan-in

You must unlearn those things conditioned by society which are untrue. Empty your subconscious mind of the untrue so that it may be filled with the truth.

“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” – Antisthenes

“The usefulness in a cup is in its emptiness. Once you fill a cup, it can no longer be used. Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.” – Bruce Lee

Projection/ CHAPTER 30

“It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” – Carl Sagan

People see the world through their own coloured glasses. What most people see outside themselves is only a projection of their own mind or untransformed psyche. If you wear blue glasses , everything appears blue (subjective perception), while plain glasses give you pure vision (objective perception). People’s worlds change by the minute. But the objective reality is absolute and does not depend upon the mind of man.

“There are three people in yourself: Who people think you are, Who you think you are, and who you really are.” – William Shakespeare

Most people (the unenlightened) experience the environment through some projection (filtered by the contents of their untransformed psyche). They are fooled into believing that a projection from their own psyche is real. Today, doubt and mind-projection heavily outweigh the human psyche.

“The state of sleep in which the greater part of humanity is. People are living like somnambulists, mechanical in their life, unconscious in their behaviour. They are not aware who they are, they are not aware what they are doing, they are not aware where they are going. Their life is accidental, a driftwood.” – Osho

People are in a dream-like state, in a hypnotic sleep. They are not aware of the deeper objective/absolute reality. People interact with others through mind-projections. They are unwilling to rise above society’s conditioning. Most people live in their own world (conditioning). Human beings have never been as ignorant as they are today. Most people are in a semi-waking trance induced by the whole culture around them and by their personal belief system. The whole world is fast asleep and people are enjoying their dreams. Most people are only interested in lies and imaginative tales. It seems that lies are far more exciting and entertaining than truths, and thus people are far more drawn to the lies of self-proclaimed (false) teachers and to indoctrination by politicians, religious leaders, salesmen, etc. 99% of all religious/spiritual teachers have fallen even further behind humanity into coma. Some students/ devotees even project their own inner master on their unenlightened teachers and falsely believe that their teachers are Enlightened/Self-realised.

People see the world as they are conditioned to see it, not as it is. Those who teach Illusionism reveal their own inner darkness.

Those with power and influence—super-rich billionaires, multinational corporations and governments—use the media to influence your mind. If you are not aware of that yet, you are still asleep. The media is the real black magician. As Malcolm X said, “If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” – Malcolm X

People from different cultures often project their demons on other cultures. Mind-projection is the root cause of most wars. Everything from the Crusades to the Inquisition to witchhunts can be classed as mind-projections. True religions have been hijacked by those that violate the essence of the scriptures even as they proclaim they are defending them.

One must be very advanced or an Avatar oneself in order to understand Avatar.  The nature of an Avatar can be understood only when you become pure; pure souls can be recognised only by the pure seeker.

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein

“From time to time, many noble souls, endowed with immense spiritual power, have taken birth to propagate sacred teachings to the world. They struggled hard to make the world a good place to live in. But without understanding their noble intentions, foolish people tried to ridicule and persecute them.” – Sai Baba

The hate of others is simply a projection of self-hate. What offends most people in others are the things that offend them within their own selves. All noble sages in the past had to put up with criticism, betrayal, false allegations, false propaganda, imprisonment or even crucifixion. The demons can never understand the nature of an Avatar. They only see the projection of their own unresolved subconscious content, their own untransformed psyche. These people ridicule and criticise true Avatars/Siddhas while blindly following some foolish fanatical religious leaders or false teachers.

“How easy it is to see your brother’s faults, How hard to face your own.” – The Buddha

When Christian fanatics attack non-Christian sages as possessed by the devil, they are defining themselves. They are projecting their own demons onto others. And remember, Jesus himself was accused of devil possession.

“No wonder he can cast out demons. He gets his power from Satan, the prince of demons.” – Matthew 12:24

“He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casts he out devils.” – Mark 3:22-30

“The crowd replied, ‘You’re demon possessed!’” – John 7:20

“You Samaritan devil! Didn’t we say all along that you were possessed by a demon?” – John 8:48

“He’s demon possessed and out of his mind. Why listen to a man like that?” – John 10:20

“‘I am not possessed by a demon,’ said Jesus, ‘but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.’” – John 8:49

The faculty of objective perception is fundamental to the practice of true spirituality. If you do not have the ability to discern a subjective perception from an objective perception of an objective reality, then you will easily mistake a projection of your own psyche as an objective perception of an objective reality. And conversely, you will easily mistrust and reject what should be trusted because of mistaking an important objective perception for a subjective projection.

Anthropomorphism, or personification, is attribution of human form or other characteristics to non-physical beings, and it is a projection. In other words, it is often people who dress these beings in human personality. This is how people perceive Individuality in non-human, non-physical beings—it is part of their own mechanisms of perception. Brahman is an impersonal, unknowable BEING. Brahman is not a He, nor a She, and does not dream or play like people.

A true Siddha/Avatar has the ability to discern accurately between the contents of his/her own psyche and an objective perception of an objective reality.

“People see only that which they desire and they project their desire. This world, the real world, is not going to disappear with your mind, but you are living in a totally different private world: the world of your desires. You don’t see the real world, you only see your own private world projected on the real world. The real world is simply being used as a screen on which you go on projecting your desires. You never see that which is; you only go on seeing that which you desire. People see only that which they desire and they project their desire.” – Osho

There is another meaning to the term projection: Divine creation or condensation. It is like the formation of ice crystals in deep ocean. Creation/projection and evolution are just different dimensions of the same thing. The infinite physical Universe is a projection of Brahman, and therefore All (the entire physical Universe) is Brahman. It doesn’t mean you created the Universe. Don’t take the meaning of non-duality to extreme.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.” – Genesis 1:1

“The cosmos is a projection of the eternal infinite reality (Brahman), and is not separate from the Brahman. The Universe is permeated by the divine. When this truth is recognized it will be obvious that all that one perceives or experiences is a manifestation of the divine.” – Sai Baba

Dogma/ CHAPTER 31

Most people live in mental cages built from their own and other people’s ignorance, fear, doubts etc., built by their parents, teachers, friends, family, employers, religious leaders, political leaders, media…They never had a freedom of choice. It was conditioned in them by others. And very few break free.

Dogma is the official system of belief or doctrine held by a religion or a particular group or organization.

Some dogmas are true. Some are not. Some are true if you understand the true meaning. Some only make sense when you reach the ultimate Enlightenment/Self-realisation.

“Any faith that admires truth, that strives to know God, must be brave enough to accommodate the Universe.” – Carl Sagan

Dogma is and has always been the enemy of Truth. Dogmatic spirituality is worse than dogmatic religion.

In true universal religion/spirituality, there is no such thing as illusion. We don’t deal with illusions. We deal with delusions. Some may use the concept illusion to mean delusion (maya) but there is no such thing as illusion. Illusionism is the grand delusion. Space-time is very real, not an illusion. How we perceive it could be called a delusion. All (matter and spirit/awareness) is Brahman. The infinite physical Universe is a single living BEing. It is alive and self-aware.

When some people speak of the Universe as illusion, they are speaking from within the frame work of illusion. How can one speak about illusion while being in illusion?

If you start with the false assumption that your guru/prophet/messenger/Messiah is fully Enlightened/Self-realised and whatever he says is the word of God, then you will end up with a false conclusion, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin gurus completely contradict themselves and you still believe they are Enlightened/Self–realised. Half-truth is misleading and not the truth.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: Everything is superimposed on the screen of consciousness. Or consciousness/awareness is the screen on which all the pictures come and go inside the skull. Not real, just an imagination, just some image/appearance or thought in my awareness.
HB: What is more foolish: to believe that the Earth is 6,000 years old, or to believe that the entire infinite physical Universe is inside your skull? Appearance implies a subject-object duality. There is the individual consciousness/awareness (Atman) and there is the Universal Consciousness (Brahman). If an elephant attacks you, that’s not just an appearance in your consciousness. The elephant exists outside of your individual consciousness with its own individual consciousness and experiences. But since the Universal Consciousness (Brahman) is infinite, there is no outside of infinity. Infinity by definition is all-encompassing. There is no outside. The evolution of the Universe within the All-Pervading Consciousness is like the growth of the baby in the mother’s womb.

“The Universe produced phenomenally in me (Universal Self/Brahman), is pervaded by me…From me the Universe is born, in me it exists, in me it dissolves.” – The Ashtavakra Gita

Projection and screen doesn’t mean Self/God is watching his own TV show. The screen and pictures is just an analogy for Brahman/Universal Consciousness (screen) and the infinite physical Universe (pictures).

Another analogy to express the same truth:
“If ice and water are mixed together, there is no difference between one and the other. It is the same with matter and spirit.” – Song of the Avadhut

“If you can’t understand the meaning of this parable, how will you understand all the other parables?” – Mark 4:13

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins don’t understand the meaning of maya. They are mixing oranges (delusions) and apples (illusion). They don’t have the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff. They don’t understand the meaning of symbols, metaphors, similes, analogies, etc. and take some of them literally. And then they are mixing it with some pseudoscience (the quantum double slit experiment). A parrot can memorize some of these dogmas and repeat like these gurus. This is the meaning of book learning.

What you (unenlightened ones) call self is just your mind/conditioned mind-self/false ego, which is different from the infinite, all-encompassing Universal Self. Realise the Universal Self.

“Nothing is ever born and nothing ever dies. Things only move between manifestation and unmanifestation.” – Osho

The ignorant believe that the self is confined to the body and mind only, whereas the wise know the Self is an infinite, all-encompassing (spirit and matter), universal being.

The one Universal Self includes the Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness and the infinite physical Universe. The unenlightened ones see the physical form in the Universe but not Brahman in these forms. Only those who have fallen below ordinary humanity as far as intelligence and awareness is concerned can say that the Universe is an illusion. The Universe is Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

The Universe is real to those who have not realized the Universal Self as well as to those who have. The Universe is real both to the ignorant and to the Self-realised/Enlightened ones. Only your perception is false. Don’t project your delusions onto the Universe. Correct your perception and all will be well.

Everything anyone sees is only an infinitesimal part of the physical form/body of Brahman/ Eternal Tao, but the Enlightened being perceives the formless Brahman/Eternal Tao simultaneously. The seer, the seen, and the sight are Brahman only.

When we (seer) look at a tree or a galaxy (seen), we are looking directly at Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/ Nothingness, and all (seer and seen) are all manifestations of the same Brahman.

Brahman Awareness/Consciousness is infinite. All awareness is encompassed by the Brahman Awareness. There is not any type of awareness that is not an aspect of the Brahman Awareness. It is the Brahman Awareness which is aware through every human being and everything (trees, rocks, electrons, galaxies, asteroids and so on) that exists and even in absolute vacuum. Furthermore, the Brahman Awareness is eternal. Brahman is simultaneously and non-sequentially aware as the infinite number of discrete awareness’s that manifest throughout the temporal realm.

Maya/ CHAPTER 32

We live in a society intoxicated by consumerism and hedonism (physical sensual indulgence). This modern society is what is referred to as maya. Maya (mental delusion, resembling a dream) refers to the meaninglessness of modern life.

“At the doors of large granaries are placed traps containing fried rice (Moori) to catch mice. The mice, attracted by the flavour of the fried rice, forgets the more solid pleasure of tasting the rice inside the granary, and fall into the trap. They are caught therein and killed. Just so is the case with the soul. It stands on the threshold of Divine bliss, which is like millions of the highest worldly pleasures solidified into one; but instead of striving for that bliss, it allows itself to be enticed by the petty pleasures of the world and falls into the trap of Maya, the great illusion, and dies therein.” – Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

“For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.” – Timothy 6:10

“For in craving pleasure or in nursing pain there is only sorrow.” – Buddha

“Sensual pleasures are verily the source of misery, and have a beginning and an end. Therefore the wise, does not rejoice in sensual pleasures.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 5.22)

“One who desires material objects is never peaceful.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.70)

“Do not let pleasure distract you from meditation, from the way. Free yourself from pleasure and pain.” – Buddha

Maya is a concept in Eastern philosophy used by people with multiple meanings, or even with directly contradictory meanings. But the true meaning of maya is the deception of extreme consumerism and hedonism (physical sensual indulgence).

Maya is not an illusion in the sense of a mirage, a factual nullity; it is a mental delusion (resembling a dream) which represents mundane life of the physical senses as permanent and a part as the whole. Maya is mundane relative reality as opposed to absolute reality.

Maya refers to the hypnotic sleep of mankind. Maya is identifying merely with your name, family, country, race, colour, job, society, religion, horoscope, nationality, and so on. Greed, lust, ignorance, false ego, fear, desire, possessiveness, and covetousness all equal maya. Desires related to pleasures, possessions, political power, money and fame is Maya. Maya is the love of and attachment to worldly things and relations.

Attachment to consumer goods is maya. Consumerism is maya. Immoral capitalism is maya. Maya is the dream world of modern politics, economics, and business. Maya is being slave to our Ponzi scheme monetary system. We were born free but most people have become entangled by consumerism, and hedonism. This is the greatest calamity that has happened to our society.

“Like the monkey which could not pull its hand from out of the narrow-necked pot, because it first held in its grasp a handful of doughnuts which the pot contained, man too is suffering today, since he is unwilling to release his hold on the handful of pleasurable things he has grasped from the world. Man is led into the wrong belief that the accumulation of material possessions will endow him with joy and calm. But Divine Love (Prema) alone can give that everlasting joy.” – Sai Baba

The largest religion in the world is Consumerism. And there are no atheists. There is no other god but Money. Money is God, and greed is the worship of it. Everything else is just an illusion for these people.

“When it is a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.” – Voltaire

People are in a dream-like state, in a hypnotic sleep. Their mind is busy with its dreams in all the three stages—waking, dream, and deep sleep. They are not aware of the deeper objective/absolute reality. The whole world is fast asleep, and people are enjoying their dreams. It is like enjoying being rich, famous, and successful in your dream. And then waking up into your conscious state to realise it was just a dream and therefore completely meaningless.

People/Sheeple are wasting their precious lives on the rat race, an endless, self-defeating, or meaningless worldly pursuit. We came into this world with nothing, and will depart the same way. Family, fame, honour, riches, and all other earthly advantages cannot be taken from here when we die. The happiness they contribute is as unreal as the happiness you derive from similar things in your dreams at night. Spiritual life is meaningful. Mundane life is like a dream— pointless, meaningless—but most people have taken to be real. While dreaming, the dreams feel so real, but when you wake up, you realise it is unreal. The mundane life is unreal (only relatively real) when you wake into the higher awareness. People spend the whole day in hectic activity (eat, work, entertainment, sex, Internet, TV, worry, sleep). There’s no time for anything else, no peace, no spare time for sitting quietly in one place. The main purpose of life is completely neglected.

“Unbridled consumerism is destroying our planet.” – Pope Francis

The American Dream is a dream for those who are at the top of the pyramid, but it’s a nightmare for the planet and the rest of humanity. But even for those at the top of the pyramid, the happiness they contribute is as unreal as the happiness you derive from similar things in your dreams at night. The Consumerist world is maya, period.

More and more of our everyday consumer and services products are useless, dangerous to the environment, and harmful to the body and soul. Corporations do not care as long as they can brainwash people into buying their products. The Consumerist world is solely concerned with profit. It is about profit before morality, profit before people. War is a very profitable business for Western governments, and therefore it will continue. Destruction of our only planet is very profitable business, and therefore it will continue.

“Many powerful people don’t want peace because they live off war”– Pope Francis

Human beings share a common heritage with all other species. For most of our history, people lived as clan-living hunter-foragers. Most people still live with the ingrained mentality of Stone Age hunter-gatherers, traits that made survival possible then. In other words, it is hardwired. The modern entrepreneurs are driven by the animal instinct to compete for the limited resources. It is about the mating game. Competition for limited resources is the only goal of our alpha males.

Do not get entangled in consumerism. Extreme consumerism is the Matrix that kills the human spirit.

Time is running out every moment. So, the Upanishads say, “Get up, arise, awake”; time is fleeing fast. Use your time wisely. Manage it so that you spend as much time and energy on the Spiritual Path (spiritual development).

Maya is the snare of worldly delusion, infatuation. Maya is the source of all evil and a cause for repeated births and deaths. The antidote to maya is detachment. Be detached. Be like the screen in the cinema, unaffected by the film.

Your true nature is the witness of these three states: waking, dream, and deep sleep.

Don’t confuse nature/Universe with consumerism. Extreme consumerism is maya. The universe is real.

“Man is full if he is in tune with the universe; if he is not in tune with the universe then he is empty, utterly empty. And out of that emptiness comes greed.” – Osho

Put your confidence in the Universal Self and not in your mind/false ego/conditioned mind-self or our society. Put your confidence in that which is Divine-made, not man-made.

“You must learn to discern between Maya and Mithya and this will help you to perceive God in everything. In this way you will develop a feeling of closeness to Nature and to God and awareness of oneness.” – Sai Baba

Maya is not an illusion in the sense of a mirage. It has nothing to do with space-time (the structure of the Universe). Spirituality is not some meaningless theoretical physics. The physical Universe exists as part of Brahman/Nothingness, but does not exist separate from Brahman. The physical Universe has no separate existence of its own. If you fail to perceive the existence of formless Brahman, then your perception is false. If you believe that the physical Universe is inside your skull, not real, just an imagination, just some image or thought in your awareness, then you do need some help. You are lost in your mind. Illusionism is the grand delusion. You have fallen below the ordinary humanity. You are far below the ordinary humanity as far as intelligence and awareness are concerned.

Modern civilization is sleepwalking to extinction. It has no understanding of meditation, of the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Everything is upside down in our society. Everything is backwards.

Not so long ago, humanity lived in harmony with nature without this modern extreme consumerism. It is time to return to our true ways of life before it is too late for everyone.

“We have been moving along at such a fast pace that we no longer know what we are doing. Now we have to wait until our soul catches up with us.” – Paulo Coelho

The visible physical universe/ CHAPTER 33

“Any faith that admires truth, that strives to know God, must be brave enough to accommodate the Universe.” – Carl Sagan

If you are still unmoved by the beauty of the asteroids, moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies in our Universe, then you haven’t really grasped its entirety yet.

The visible physical Universe (moons, planets, stars, galaxies…) is a manifestation of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness itself and therefore real. Everything in this Universe is real and alive. The Universe is aware in a non-human way. Space-time is very real, not an illusion. How the unenlightened ones perceive it could be called a delusion.

Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao became the infinite physical Universe and is imminent in every single atom and vacuum of this Universe. This consciousness exists even in a rock. Physical form is the densest manifestation of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. All (entire Universe) is Self/Brahman. There is only Brahman.

When we look at a single atom, tree, galaxy or even absolute vacuum, we are looking directly at Brahman. When we look at each other or within our own selves, we are looking at Brahman (a part of Brahman looking at another part of Brahman). Those who are pure in heart (soul) and awareness (spirit) perceive the formless, impersonal Brahman and do not have any delusions.

We exist in relation to an absolute/objective reality. But most people’s perception, however, is a subjectifying process and it is only in this sense that people “create their own reality” or live in a subjective world of their own making. As we advance in spirituality, we objectively perceive the objective reality.

To say that matter/physical form/appearance is an illusion and only the consciousness component of that physical form is real is to say that ice is an illusion and only water vapour is real. Ice is condensed water vapour. In the same way, the visible physical Universe is the densest manifestation of Brahman/ Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

“All ignorance and illusion, all objects inert and living, all beings and non-beings, all the five elements, all the diverse worlds, all bodies and the lives that arise in them, not being apart from Brahman-Self, are Brahman-Self only. Existence alone is, for even non-existence acquires meaning only in Existence. Simply put, everything exists always as Brahman-Self only.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.12, v.2

“A human being is part of the whole called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space.” – Albert Einstein

The Universe/Nature (form/body of Brahman/Eternal Tao) is Divine. Do you have the Divine eyes to appreciate it? Do you have the eyes that can see and the ears that can hear, or have you been conditioned by pseudo/neo-Advaitins?

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: If you first see God in yourself, you will see him in the animals, birds, and rocks.
HB: If the rock is real and God, then the entire infinite physical Universe is real and Brahman. Rocks are made of atoms. The atoms were manufactured in stars. Galaxies are made up of Stars. The Universe is made up of galaxies. If the rocks can be seen as God, why not see the entire Universe as God? Actually, the physical Universe is the form/body of Brahman. It is just as simple as that.

PA: Then that which was originally rejected as being unreal is found to be a part of the unity. Being absorbed in the reality, the world also is real.
HB: It was your own perception that was false (delusion) in the first place, not the physical Universe.

PA: When the Universe is perceived apart from Brahman that perception is false and illusory.
HB: Yes but then how did some people turn Advaita into Illusionism?

Basic human needs/ CHAPTER 34

“Contentment the greatest wealth.” – Buddha

“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.” – Buddha

“Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury—to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.” – Albert Einstein

Basic human needs are food, water, shelter, warmth, love and spirituality. We came into this world with nothing, and will depart the same way. To sacrifice your immortal spirit for fame, honour, riches and all other earthly advantages is meaningless (maya).

Society measures your entire self-worth by how much capital you acquire, your job, your wealth, your position in society, etc. But to be your Atman-self, you don’t need to become rich, famous, and successful.

“Modern man has transformed himself into a commodity; he experiences his life energy as an investment with which he should make the highest profit, considering his position and the situation on the personality market. He is alienated from himself, from his fellow men and from nature. His main aim is profitable exchange of his skills, knowledge, and of himself, his “personality package” with others who are equally intent on a fair and profitable exchange. Life has no goal except the one to move, no principle except the one of fair exchange, no satisfaction except the one to consume.” – Erich Fromm

The majority of the population live to consume and consume to live.

Evil dominates in our society. Evil influences are everywhere, tempting you with money, extreme/perverse sexual indulgence, political power, fame, entertainment for the physical senses (worldly physical sensual indulgence), etc.

The purpose of human life is to reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Mundane life of worldly physical sensual indulgence is meaningless (maya). Everything that people do except spiritual evolution is basically futile. Money, mundane achievements, ambition, political power, sex, social status, family, friends, and relationships will mean nothing when it comes to death. You do not evolve spiritually by acquiring these mundane things, nor do you wither away by losing them. Your Atman-self remains the same.

You cannot secure enduring bliss through physical sensual indulgence/physical pleasures. It is like trying to quench your thirst from a mirage.

Mundane desires cannot be fulfilled no matter how long you live. The more of it one has the more one wants. You cannot suppress or fulfil it, but through character transformation/ development, you can have some kind of control. Understand the nature of desires and their futility. Become more aware of your true self. Be detached. Every morning when you wake up, be grateful for being alive and be content with what you have.

You are where your mind is. You are where your mundane treasure is. It is holding you back from reaching a higher state of consciousness. Be detached.

“When a person saw a fish struggling on a river bank because the waters receded leaving it high and dry, he sympathised with its plight and brought it home wrapped in his handkerchief. He found it struggling even when he put it to bed; so, he gave it a few teaspoonfuls of hot coffee. The poor fish could not survive such ignorant kindness! It died. If only he had put it back into river, it could have lived happily; even if you put it in the bowl studded with gems, it would be miserable. So too, it is man’s innate nature to revel in the Divine; so, if you keep man in the world and pour material gains and comforts on him, he will still pine for God whom he knows to be the fountain-head of happiness.” – Sai Baba

“The rain could turn to gold and still your thirst would not be slaked. Desire is unquenchable or it ends in tears, even in heaven.” – Buddha

“Desire never crosses the path of virtuous and wakeful men.” – Buddha

“Having the fewest wants, I am nearest to the gods.” – Socrates

“The desire for sensual pleasures fades away if one abstains from sense enjoyment, but the craving for sense enjoyment remains in a very subtle form. This subtle craving also completely disappears from the one who knows the Supreme Being.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.59)

“Who is a knower of the Supreme Being, such a person eternally abides with the Supreme Being.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 5.20)

“Such a person who is in union with the Supreme Being becomes unattached to external sensual pleasures by discovering the joy of the Self through contemplation, and enjoys transcendental bliss.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 5.21)

“The morning shadow moves in front of you; however fast you run, you cannot catch it, on plain or mountain. Or, the shadow may pursue you and you cannot escape from it. This is the nature of desire. You may pursue it or it may pursue you—but, you cannot overcome it or match it. Desire is an unsubstantial shadow. But, turn desire inward, towards spiritual treasure; then, it yields substantial results.” – Sai Baba

Extreme consumerism is false aspiration. Get off the merry-go-round of life. Sacrifice lower wants and desires for something nobler, higher and more (important) permanent.

An observation by comedian George Carlin (1937-2008):

“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

“We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

“We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

“We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

“We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.

“These are the times of big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

“Give time to love. And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.” – George Carlin

What is the point of losing your soul to gain some temporary worldly pleasure? Reduce your wants and live simply. There is no material reward more satisfying than contentment.

Opportunity cost/ CHAPTER 35

There are two paths in life—one leading to the Source/Universal Self, the other leading to worldly pleasure (extreme materialism). Those who follow one inevitably goes away from the other—because they conflict. The more you advance in the direction of materialism, the further away you are from the Source/Universal Self. It is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than for those who follow worldly pleasure to enter the eternal realm.

Opportunity cost in economics is defined as a benefit/value/profit of something that must be given up to acquire/achieve something else. It is the cost of an alternative that must be given up in order to pursue a certain action/choice/decision/ activity. It is the sacrifice you made related to the second-best choice available to you among several choices.

Most people sell themselves short because they do not have a choice. The system is broken. People sacrifice their physical and mental health in order to make money. Sacrifice lower wants and desires for something nobler, higher and more important/permanent.

Evolution of both humans and monkeys from an extinct common ancestor is a path. Biological evolution leads to spiritual evolution or evolution of human consciousness (higher states of awareness). But most people are still living as animal being. Most people are busy with maya that they have ignored the essential purpose of their sojourn here. Most people are so poor in spirit, because all they have is money, consumer goods, fame, social status, political power etc. People sell themselves short because they don’t know themselves. They identify with their cultural conditioning. When you wake up from maya, your priorities change.

“They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold; and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.” – Kahlil Gibran

Life is too short. Your time is the most precious gift you have. The price of anything in mundane life is the amount of time you exchange for it. When you buy something, you are paying with your limited time that you spent earning that money. Once you’ve lost your precious limited time, you can never get it back. Money won’t buy that time or extra time.

“For every joy there is a price to be paid.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

“The ordinary man is living a very abnormal life, because his values are upside down. Money is more important than meditation; logic is more important than love; mind is more important than heart; power over others is more important than power over one’s own being. Mundane things are more important than finding some treasures which death cannot destroy.” – Osho

“Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.”All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'” – Matthew 4:8-10

“Darkness and light cannot exist at the same time and in the same place; they cannot continue together, riches and God cannot be joint ideals. When riches are sought God cannot be achieved. If both are sought by man what he will achieve, will be neither riches nor God but the Devil.” – Sai Baba

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have” – Hebrews 13:5

“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.” – Timothy 6:9-10

“..When society gives something to you, it also takes something from you: your liberty, your soul.” – Osho

“You sold your being. For nothing. What you have gained is simply nothing, Just rubbish. For small things you have lost your soul. You have agreed to be somebody else other than yourself; that is where you missed your path.” – Osho

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on Earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:19-21

“One can serve two masters….You cannot serve God and money.” – Matthew 6:24

“And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.” – Mark 4:18-19

Life is too short and precious. Your time is limited. With money, you can buy a nice big clock, but not the time you have used up, or extra time. Use your time wisely.

Not important/ CHAPTER 36

“In search for truth there are certain questions that are unimportant.” – Buddha

A plethora of baseless details and theories circulates under the guise of “religion” and “spirituality.” These are blinds set out by armchair teachers (theorists). By not knowing the foundation of universal religion/spirituality, and making up fanciful theories out of their own minds/false ego/ conditioned mind-self, they exhibit their ignorance to all.

“If a man were to postpone his searching and practicing for enlightenment until such questions were solved, he would die before he found the path.” – Buddha

Basic science is important in these modern times, but don’t waste your precious time on complex, meaningless theoretical physics such as quantum physics, physical parallel Universes, physical multi-dimensions, time travel on the temporal realm, etc. Simplicity is the essence of true universal spirituality. Science seeks to understand the properties of the physical materia that naturally adheres to the non-physical Elements (classical elements), whereas spirituality seeks to understand the Elements themselves. Modern rational mind alone can never penetrate to the deeper aspects of non-physical realms—these things cannot be comprehended through the limited, rational logic.

At least 99% of all spiritual/religious teachers do not understand science or spirituality properly. Their understanding of science is just Pseudoscience. Pseudoscience is not spirituality. Pseudoscience and complex, meaningless theoretical physics are just distractions. They are not relevant to the problems of suffering, nor do they lead to happiness, peace and Enlightenment/ Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Don’t waste your precious time on these foolish pursuits. Focus on what really matters. Many religious/spiritual people have deviated from the true path under the influence of modern science/quackademia.

Over 95 % of the so-called holy books are irrelevant and redundant, but they also contain some truth (about 5 %) if you know how to mine for it. Pseudo/Neo-Advaita is nothing but Christian bypassing in Advaitic concepts, and logical fallacies, and only leads to depression and madness. Focus on practical answers. Don’t waste your precious time on religious/spiritual theories that have no practical use.

Everything in this modern society is a distraction. Distracting you from knowing truth, from knowing yourself, and from reaching Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Spiritual pages are using spirituality for everything else except for spreading truth and love.

“Vain is the word of a philosopher which does not heal any suffering of man. For just as there is no profit in medicine if it does not expel the diseases of the body, so there is no profit in philosophy either, if it does not expel the suffering of the mind.” – Epicurus

“Whether the view is held that the world is eternal or not, there is still birth, old age, death, grief, suffering, sorrow and despair – and these can be destroyed in this life! I have not explained these other things because they are not useful, they are not conducive to tranquility and Nirvana. What I have explained is suffering, the cause of suffering, the destruction of suffering and the path that leads to the destruction of suffering. This is useful, leading to non-attachment, the absence of passion, perfect knowledge. ” – Buddha

Do not lose track of where you are on the spiritual path, and what is really happening in our society and our world.

Know your Atman-self first before you seek to understand our society, the infinite physical Universe, and the nature of the Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Nothingness/Eternal Tao.

Renunciation/ CHAPTER 37

“Learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)

Emptiness or vacancy of mind is renunciation. Non-attachment or detachment is renunciation. Character transformation is renunciation.

Surrender is renunciation. The transformation of petty will into Divine/Brahman will is renunciation. Transformation of identity (false ego), an expansion from the Individual to that of Unity with All (Universal “I”), is renunciation. Therefore, Enlightenment/Self-realisation is renunciation.

But renunciation is also lifestyle change, dedicating all your time and energy to your spiritual perfection (concentrating on Nothingness/Brahman). Sacrifice is renunciation. Renunciation is not escapism. To enter by the narrow gate and walk on the narrow path is renunciation. It is a way of life.

When the fruit is ripe, it will fall off the branch of its own accord. Similarly, one spontaneously renounces the worldly path and enters the narrow path leading to Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Eternal Tao/Brahman. You will give up many things spontaneously. Your priorities change. It is a natural process. It just happens. But be practical. You need money to survive in today’s world. You cannot beg on the streets.

Worldly people renounce the spiritual path, giving up eternal bliss and immortality for temporary worldly pleasure. To sacrifice your immortal spirit for fame, honour, riches and all other earthly advantages is meaningless (maya). Eventually you’ll find that nothing is really of any value unless it is that which assimilates you with the divinity and brings you closer to your immortal self.

“The person whose mind is always free from attachment, who has subdued the mind and senses, and who is free from desires, attains the supreme perfection of freedom from Karma through renunciation.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)

Be a loner/ CHAPTER 38

You were born alone and will die alone. Mundane love and friendships only create the delusion for a short time that you are not alone. But you are really alone.

“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.” – Albert Einstein

“Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole Universe.” – Lao Tzu

“Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.” – Albert Einstein

“I am truly a ‘lone traveler’ and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart. In the face of all this, I have never lost a sense of distance and the need for solitude.” – Albert Einstein

“Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god.” – Aristotle

“I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.” – Albert Einstein

“Better it is to walk alone, There is no companionship with fools. Walk alone and do no evil, At ease like a tusker in the woods.” – Buddha

“Delight in meditation, And in solitude.” – Buddha

“Anti-social behaviour is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists.” – Nikola Tesla

It is very healthy to spend time alone to get to know your true self. It is important to be alone and not crave for superficial companionships.

“The most important relationship we can all have is the one you have with yourself, the most important journey you can take is one of self-discovery. To know yourself, you must spend time with yourself, you must not be afraid to be alone. Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle

“We are born alone, we live alone, and we die alone. Aloneness is our very nature, but we are not aware of it. Because we are not aware of it, we remain strangers to ourselves, and instead of seeing our aloneness as a tremendous beauty and bliss, silence and peace, at-easeness with existence, we misunderstand it as loneliness.” – Osho

“Aloneness simply means completeness. You are whole; there is no need of anybody else to complete you. So try to find out your innermost center where you are always alone, have always been alone. In life, in death—wherever you are—you will be alone. But it is so full! It is not empty; it is so full and so complete and so overflowing with all the juices of life, with all the beauties and benedictions of existence, that once you have tasted your aloneness, the pain in the heart will disappear. Instead, a new rhythm of tremendous sweetness, peace, joy, bliss, will be there.” – Osho

“It is better to be with trees and the clouds and the river and the mountains and the ocean, because the whole existence is nothing but intelligence. If you can be in deep communion with nature you will become more intelligent.” – Osho

“Aloneness is the joy of being just yourself. It is being joyous with yourself, it is enjoying your own company. There are very few people who enjoy their own company. And it is a very strange world: nobody enjoys his company and everybody wants others to enjoy his company!” – Osho

“I’m alone, I am not lonely.” – Robert De Niro, “Heat”

“A transcendentalist should always engage his body, mind and self in relationship with the Supreme; he should live alone in a secluded place and should always carefully control his mind. He should be free from desires and feelings of possessiveness.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.10)

“The birds taking shelter for the night awake and fly away to the four quarters at sunrise; so too, the wife and children, the fortune and wealth, all fly away without as much as even a farewell notice. Establish yourselves firmly in this fact; make immediate efforts to achieve the eternal, the permanent, the unchanging.” – Sai Baba

Being surrounded by negative people leads to self-destruction. Solitude is one of the essential conditions for inner purification. In solitude, you are least alone. Solitude has its own beauty to it. Solitude is your best companion. The mind, in solitude, goes quiet of its own accord.

You came into this physical realm alone with no companions. When your soul returns to the non-physical astral realm and then eventually your spirit returns to the eternal realm from which you came, you enter the portals alone, with no one to keep company.

When among men, I am man. When among children, I am a child. Among birds, I am a bird. In nature, I am all four elements. When I am alone, I am Brahman/Eternal Tao (an infinite, all-encompassing, universal being).

No one saves us but ourselves/ CHAPTER 39

“Be lamps unto yourselves. Be refuges unto yourselves. Take yourself no external refuge. Hold fast to the truth as a lamp. Hold fast to the truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves.”– Buddha

“It is you who must make the effort. Masters only point the way.” – Buddha

“Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.” – Buddha

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path: Buddhas only show the way.” – Buddha

“Save yourselves by your own effort.” – Sai Baba

Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts can only inspire you but cannot save you. Only you can save your soul.

Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts can explain it to you but cannot understand, experience and embody it for you.

“No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Avatars cannot confer Enlightenment/Self-realisation to others. No one can. God never reaches down to humanity. Man must climb up to Brahman through Self-transformation, and save himself. Avatars could only ever show the way; each being had to tread the path for him or herself.

Spiritual evolution is not a commodity or thing that can be bought or given. It is, by nature, a process that you must pursue for yourself. It is self-transformation. The most that another person can do is support your own process. No one can do the work for you.

“I can turn Earth into sky, and sky into Earth, but over men’s hearts I have no power.” – Sai Baba

Ultimately, all initiation is self-initiation. Even when you study with a corporeal teacher, you are still the one who has to do the work. No one else can do it for you. All a teacher can possibly do for you is help you find your way. But a teacher is not necessary by any means since the way is always right in front of you, and besides, a teacher can only take you a very short way along your path.

The spiritual mystery is self-revealing. In other words, the further you progress, the more self-evident it becomes where you must yet go.

“The torch may illumine only a distance of two yards and you may have to go two miles in the night. But, do not despair. Hold it in your hand and walk on. With every step, the torch will illumine a few steps more and so, you can reach the goal safe.” – Sai Baba

Self-initiation requires commitment, persistence and self-direction. If these are qualities you possess or are willing to build, then no, seeking initiation with a teacher is not superior. In such a case, I’d say it would be an inferior choice.

Grace is the reward for individual disciplined effort, spiritual practice, Dharma and faith. Unless there is an underlying faith that Enlightenment/Self-realisation is ultimately attainable and you make an effort and practice regularly, Grace cannot descend on you.

“When the sun rises, all the buds of lotus in the lake will not open out in full bloom. Only those which are full grown can blossom so; the rest have to bide their time and grow. His Grace is the right of all, but it can be won by sadhana only.” – Sai Baba

Religious people are waiting for their Messiah/Saviour/ET to come and save them. Christians are waiting for the Second Coming of Jesus. Some are even waiting for grace. But no one is coming to save you or save humanity from extinction. Either we figure this out, or we are doomed. You must become your own Messiah/Saviour and save yourself.

To believe you are saved while still immersed in consumerism and hedonism (physical sensual indulgence), and ignore the path of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self or try to bypass it with logical tricks is nothing but Satanic deception. To enter heaven/paradise you must reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation.

Experience/ CHAPTER 40

“The only source of knowledge is experience.” – Albert Einstein

“Rely not on the words of the teaching, but on the spirit of the words. Rely not on theory, but on experience.” – Kālāma Sūtra

“Experience will show you, a Master can only point the way.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

The experience/revelation of true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts matters less than your experience matters.

Practice what you preach. Practice, understand, experience, embody and finally BE. No one succeeds without practice, experience, understanding, embodiment and finally Being.

If you don’t practice, you cannot experience. If you don’t experience, you won’t understand. If you don’t understand, you cannot embody. If you don’t embody, you cannot live/BE it. The ultimate experience is the out-of-body experience (OBE) and the experience after death.

Practise till you have the direct experience yourself. Don’t rely on others’ experience/revelation. All the spiritual/religious reading and discussion must end in practice, leading to inner silence only.

Mere theory (book learning) never yields the spiritual bliss. Universal Self cannot be realised without advanced meditation/practice. In order to experience “I am That/Brahman” and ultimately “I AM”, you must practise. It takes years or a lifetime of practice to experience this.

The intellect can be counterfeit when religious/spiritual concepts and doctrines held in the mind are treated as more important than the experiences they were invented to express.

True spiritual initiation is about developing one’s own faculties of perception. It’s not about relying upon what others believe, or tell you, or what a book tells you, etc. It’s about exploring, discovering, and objectively perceiving for yourself. This does result in the development of personal wisdom, but it is founded upon experiential understanding, not upon book learning.

An armchair theorist can write about mixed martial arts but it is not the same as being a mixed martial arts champion. Lots of people have written what they have read or have been taught by others and not what they have experienced from walking the narrow path.

Anyone can say and claim anything; it doesn’t mean it’s true.

Most people who write/speak about religion/spirituality are generally not Enlightened/Self-realised so they are limited to their opinions, conditionings and cognitive dissonance. Some of them have reduced thousands of years of sacred ancient teachings into gibberish.

“People will follow only the man who speaks out of personal experience. Some people were on this bank of the river and since they were strangers they sought information whether the river could be crossed at that point and how. A lame fellow said, ‘It is dangerous to cross at this point; go further down.’ They did not believe him, for he could not have waded through! A blind man said, ‘You can cross; only, keep more to the left for some distance and move to the right afterwards.’ They did not follow his advice, for he could not have known; he must have been led by some one else. At last a man came, who volunteered to take them across. ‘I have crossed often; I live on the other bank and I own lands on this side.’ So, they followed him with confidence and they could reach the other bank safe.” – Sai Baba

“When somebody listens to my teachings without the mind, he becomes enlightened. If somebody listens to my teachings through the mind, then he finds his own explanations, which have nothing to do with mine.” – Lao Tzu/Osho

Without a foundation in personal experience of the universal order, the mind can run (as so many minds have run) off into Illusionism, quantum woo woo, obsession or unrecognized fantasy.

“A donkey carrying a pile of holy books is still a donkey!” – Zen proverb

“Every one interprets everything in terms of his own experience. If you say anything which does not touch a precisely similar spot in another man’s brain, he either misunderstands you, or doesn’t understand you at all.” – Aleister Crowley

Billions of people and religious leaders/teachers read religious texts but still don’t know the essence of the scriptures or the essence of their own religion. They do not understand the meaning of the concepts/words in religion/spirituality. Most go on reading, discussing, and just accumulating information. Most of them are just human encyclopaedias of accumulated information. It has done more harm than good. They have not realised yet that the essence of all the scriptures and religions is one and the same, and it points to practice that leads to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

The best book on truth/religion/spirituality is not a book. How do you think the first enlightened beings discover the truth/spirituality thousands of years ago? The same method of discovery is still available to all human beings today. The best book on truth/religion/spirituality is meditation/self-transformation/purification.

The two most important experiences in your life are the feeling of inner urge to know your true self and the experience when you merge with the Universal Self.

“The Scriptures are only road maps; they are guide books at best, describing the road and giving the directions for the journey. It is the actual journey that will reveal the hardships, the delays, the landslips and the pot-holes, as well as the beauty of the scenery encountered and the magnificence of the final goal. No second-hand account can equal the first-hand experience.” – Sai Baba

“In spiritual matters, it is experience alone that is the deciding factor.” – Sai Baba

Free Will/ CHAPTER 41

“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” – Stephen Hawking

Things are predestined only from the eternal perspective. But within the temporal realm, nothing is predestined, and we have absolute free will. We can alter the course of our corporeal lives in any moment.

When clairvoyant psychics predict a person’s future, what they are seeing is the probable future, based upon the current state of the individual’s development. Considering free will, this probable future can change in any given moment.

It is incorrect to think that temporal events are strictly predestined. This just incites indolence—powerless, self-defeating passivity, the opposite of free will. All this accomplishes is a wasting of time that would be better spent creatively engaging with life. Each incarnation is a precious, sacred opportunity to take life by the horns and reach the highest spiritual goal.

In the eternal realm or from the eternal perspective, there is no free will (in the mundane sense), there is only Being. There is no willing-to-be; the only thing to “do” is simply BE. But within the temporal realm, nothing is certain, and we do have free will (freedom of choice). EVERY creature has free will, which each manifests in its own unique way. As human beings we have personal power to choose between this or that thought, emotion, action, etc. But for every choice taken, there is an equal consequence. Species evolve because they have to adapt to survive. And that’s only possible because of free will. The conscious choices we make on a daily basis are how our Atman (Individual consciousness/ awareness) evolves.

We humans have the freedom to will anything we can dream of but only a small fraction of what we might conceivably will is actually achievable. Free will does not mean that we are all-powerful. EVERY creature faces limitation. Our ability to will is not hindered, but our actualization of that willing is limited. It is limited by the essential structure of the Universe (i.e. by the Eternal Will of Brahman).

Free will is a feature of the temporal realm. Remain aware of the eternal perspective and consciously exercise your free will. Learn how to hold these opposite perspectives simultaneously.

It is important that you discern between these two perspectives. The most harmful religious/ spiritual teaching is when you state the eternal perspective as a feature of the temporal realm.

If there is no free will, then no one can be held responsible for their evil actions. Then you should also support freeing all murderers and rapists from prison. The problem is that you don’t even understand the meaning of free will.

Avatars take on a divine mission in accordance with the Divine Will to guide and support human awakening, transformation and spiritual evolution. That’s only possible because of free will. But take a look at two different Avatars and see if they do exactly the same thing.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: Find out to whom free will or destiny matters.
HB: Find out who is uttering these words. Free will exists to the same self that had the free will to utter these words.

There is no escaping the true spiritual path, no matter how much you want to believe your logical fallacies as Self-realisation.

PA: The only freedom you have is to turn your mind inward and renounce activities there.
HB: If there is no free will, then it is God (Divine Will) who dropped the atomic bomb on Japan. It is God who causes the daily horrors of war, poverty, crime, false flag operations, etc. Makes a lot of sense to you, does it? If you say there is no free will, then you should be able to predict the future. Can you?

PA: Can you prove we have free will?
HB: Yes. Just watch a boxing match. That’s free will in action. Free will is part of Divine Will.

Effort/ CHAPTER 42

“The sensory world is the school, without which the human being would never come to the spirit.” – Rudolf Steiner

“…Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, ‘See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be, and the mud settled down on its own, and you have clear water.

“‘Your mind is like that too! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.’ Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is not a strenuous job, it is an effortless process!” – Buddha

“It is you who must make the effort. Masters only point the way.” – Buddha

“By your own efforts. Waken yourself, watch yourself. And live joyfully. You are the master.” – Buddha

Meditation is effortless, spontaneous, and natural if you live a simple life in harmony with nature. But we’re all living in one big Rat Race (an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit). We live in a society “intoxicated by consumerism and hedonism”. This modern society is what is referred to as maya. It is destructive and “anti-life”. It is anti-spiritual. In this fools world, it takes time and persistent effort.

The system keeps people busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals with mind-numbing jobs where people do not have a clue what they are doing with their precious lives or what is really going on in this consumerist world. People don’t have the time or energy to relax and are spiritually depleted.

“You sold your being. For nothing. What you have gained is simply nothing, Just rubbish. For small things you have lost your soul.” – Osho

“Money, power, prestige—they all make you cunning. Seek pleasure and you will lose your innocence; and to lose your innocence is to lose all. Jesus says: be like a small child, only then can you enter into my kingdom of God. And he is right. But the pleasure-seeker cannot be as innocent as a child. He has to be very clever, very cunning, very political; only then can he succeed in this cut-throat competition that exists all around. Everybody is at everybody else’s throat. You are not living amongst friends. The world cannot be friendly unless we drop this idea of competitiveness.
But we bring every child… From the very beginning we start poisoning every child with this poison of competitiveness. By the time he will be coming out of the university he will be completely poisoned. We have hypnotized him with the idea that he has to fight with others, that life is a survival of the fittest. Then life can never be a celebration. Then life can never have any kind of religiousness in it. Then it cannot be pious, holy. Then it cannot have any quality of sacredness. Then it is all mean, ugly.” – Osho

“Meditation is rest, absolute rest, a full stop to all activity—physical, mental, emotional. When you are in such a deep rest that nothing stirs in you, when all action as such ceases—as if you are fast asleep yet awake—you come to know who you are.
…Never go against rest and relaxation. Arrange your life in such a way, drop all futile activity because ninety per cent is futile; it is just for killing time and remaining occupied. Do only the essential and devote your energies more and more to the inner journey” – Osho

Mankind is being led astray by modern politics, economics, business, fanatical religions, false prophets/teachers, meaningless scientific theories, etc. For many people, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. Stress can also lead to emotional problems, depression, panic attacks, or other forms of anxiety and worry. Depression affects over 25 million Americans a year. More than 80% of Americans are stressed about their jobs, surveys find. More than 17 percent of Americans will suffer from a major depressive episode at least once in their lifetime. Mixed anxiety and depression are the most prevalent mental health problems in the West.

In these modern times, most jobs involve being in the mind. You have to use your mind and be in the mind if you want to earn a living. Even when you go home, you cannot switch off your mind. Most spiritual gurus don’t work, so they don’t have a clue what people are going through these days. They can say things like be an instrument, not the doer, etc. But in practice, it is very difficult for most people. Work stress is on the rise, affecting over 80% of the employees. Stress is a major risk factor in a variety of physical and emotional illnesses.

Stress is not your natural state. Therefore, it takes effort. Stress should be resolved prior to your focusing meditations.

“The effort to strive for truth has to precede all other efforts.” – Albert Einstein

“As for the search for truth, I know from my own painful searching, with its many blind alleys, how hard it is to take a reliable step, be it ever so small, toward the understanding of that which is truly significant.” – Albert Einstein

“When you live the life of Sadhana, you will meet with opposition from various sources. But, do not attach any importance to such. First, your kith and kin will try to divert you into worldly pursuits…Do not be cowed down by (the) cynics or the critics, who may abound in the family. Then there is public opinion, which might decry the spiritual path and subject you to ridicule or worse…” – Sai Baba

Another obstacle is from fanatical haters from Western societies with materialistic and fanatical ideology. They attack anyone who is trying to spread the truth. They ridicule and violently oppose anything spiritual.

“It is not that everybody has to practice a lot of austerities—though I had to make a great deal of effort.” – Sri Ramakrishna

The student of spirituality who expects to reach their ultimate goal must cultivate a degree of commitment that will carry them along their path no matter how long or how arduous it may be. Every one of you will eventually reach your highest goal—it just takes time and persistent effort.

We carry the abilities we learn from one lifetime into the next. Sometimes, those abilities lay dormant until we are prepared to resume the conscious spiritual evolution.

Every small effort you put into it will accumulate. It may take decades of effort, but that’s not really very much time, all things considered. The non-physical reward for the effort far outweighs the effort involved.

No one else can do the work of self-transformation and Self-realization/Enlightenment for you.

“You are the source of all purity and impurity. No one purifies another.” – Buddha

In laboratory alchemy, there are different processes at different stages such as Digestion, Putrefaction, Calcination, Sublimation, and so on. In the same way, there are different meditation practices such as mindfulness, sacred breathing, physical exercise, astral travelling, embodiment of the four elements, surrender, and so on at different stages on the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

Surrender is a matter of being in harmony with the Universe and consciously participating in that harmony through your actions.

“Don’t seek, don’t search, don’t ask, don’t knock, don’t demand ~ relax. If you relax it comes, if you relax it is there. If you relax, you start vibrating with it.” – Osho

Self-transformation/Meditation is a process of surrender to the Universal Self, becoming in sync with the flow of the objective reality. It is a process of letting go, relaxing, and dissolving in the Universe consciousness. It is when your Atman (individual awareness) is in absolute sync with the Universe consciousness, with the NOW. It is Being without DOing.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: That which is observing the effort to be the Presence, is that making any effort?
HB: But you are not literally Brahman-Self in this temporal realm. A parrot is also evolving while its eternal Atman is aware of its evolution. But the parrot’s temporal Atman is completely unaware. Can you make the parrot aware with your logical tricks? NO. Are you aware of your own logical fallacies? No, but your eternal Atman is.

People are already aware of their problems when they come to you. Just saying that it is watchable, observable, doesn’t make it any better. The point is, how do you overcome it and be happy and ultimately be in Bliss?

PA: Effort is required to become…but what effort is required to be?
HB: Effort is required to become a teacher, politician etc. in mundane life. But spirituality is about no-mind and the evolution of your temporal Atman. It is simple, but takes spiritual effort to merge with the Universal Self. Spiritual effort is as natural as breathing.

Only blind guides (Pseudo/Neo-Advaita armchair gurus) can teach you that no effort is necessary, nothing needs practice and everybody is already enlightened. Effortless universal awareness is attained only after persistent effort.

One of the most dangerous doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by pseudo-Christians is that you are saved alone by the grace of God; that blind acceptance of their Sky Daddy and his son alone is all that is needed for salvation.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaita is Christianity in disguise, redefined in Advaitic concepts. Most Christians believe that Skydaddy and his son have already done the work for them. All you have to do is to blindly believe it and receive it freely (also pay 10 percent of your income to the church). This false doctrine has put billions of lives at risk. Pseudo-Christians will be shocked on the day of their death to find themselves not in heaven and realise that they have been deceived by Satan.

Self – discipline/ CHAPTER 43

“You are your own master, you make your own future. Therefore discipline yourself as a horse-dealer trains a thoroughbred.” – Buddha

You cannot control or go beyond the mind/thoughts with the mind, only by being your Atman-self.

“A thief may harm a thief; an enemy may harm an enemy; but a wrongly directed mind can do oneself far greater harm.” – Buddha

“The person who masters himself through self-control and discipline is truly undefeatable.” – Buddha

“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.” – Buddha

“For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories.” – Plato

“Easy to do are things that are bad and harmful to oneself. But exceedingly difficult to do are things that are good and beneficial.” – Buddha

Leaders aren’t born. They become, through hard work (even though some might have some genetic advantage). And that’s the sacrifice you will have to make to reach any goal in life.

Self-discipline is the way to freedom from laziness, lethargy, weakness, fear, etc. Self-discipline is the way to discover your inner strength and talents. Self-discipline is the way to be a master of, rather than a slave to, your thoughts and emotions.

Rule yourself or the world will rule you. You must rule yourself with a rod of iron and fist of stone. Be lenient towards others, but relentless and hard on yourself. Be calm on the outside, and a warrior on the inside. Only such behaviour will be followed by success in life and spirituality. Focus yourself upon your own self and upon being the best person you can be, and simply allow others to be what they are.

Sadhana is spiritual discipline or effort aimed at Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self. The spiritual aspirant uses spiritual discipline to attain the goal of Self-realisation/ Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self.

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” – Buddha

“Spiritual progress and bliss depend on disciplined effort. It can come only through hard and difficult toil, not through pleasant easy paths. Life becomes worth living only when one has disciplined habits, concentration of mind, renunciation of sensual pleasures and faith in the Atman.” – Sai Baba

Control your mind and emotion through spiritual discipline and training or it will control you. Harness the mind and emotion, in the right direction, and it will crystallize by itself.

“Just as you obey the rules of health for fear of falling ill, you have to practise certain mental restrictions and regulation so that you may have peace, contentment, joy, enthusiasm, and faith.” – Sai Baba

“Master your senses, what you taste and smell, what you see, what you hear. In all things be a master. Of what you do and say and think. Be free.” – Buddha

Mental discipline is a matter of learning how to focus your awareness upon whatever you choose and keep it there for as long as you desire. Discipline is necessary in the practice of meditation. Old habits die hard. People struggle with their thoughts—a battle between the negative and the positive. Be aware of any negative thoughts or anything that causes negativities and use your self-discipline to overcome it.

We concentrate (mental disciple) every day in exactly the same ways required for spiritual perfection. The only difference is that we normally do so without conscious intent. I liken it to going to a gym—we use our muscles every day, but it is only when we focus our attention upon building those muscles that they develop. It’s the same with the concentration exercises—we take them from the realm of unconscious habit and move them into the realm of conscious ability.

When passion AND discipline merge, there is no barrier that cannot be overcome.

“We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

“Through discipline comes freedom.” – Aristotle

Change yourself first/ CHAPTER 44

Modern society is going astray from nature. We live in a consumerist world where doctors do not address the root cause of the disease, the education system turns every human being into a mind-machine, politicians are puppets to the global elite and their corporations, injustice is everywhere, the media deceives and distracts people, religions divide more than unite people, and the monetary system is a pyramid scheme.

People can be easily fooled, and they are being fooled every day. But it is very difficult to convince them that they have been conditioned, and that they need to reprogram their subconscious mind.

This cultural programming/conditioning is so deep that people identify with it and defend it. They are not aware of their own conditioning and do not realise that they have to go beyond it.

Most people only hear what they are conditioned to hear, and are very committed to misunderstanding the truth. Truth is not important to them. They only want to hear what feeds their false ego/conditioned mind-self and listen only to respond in a negative way. It seems like a waste of time when most people can never understand the deeper aspects of non-physical realms for which they are not ripe.

It’s easier to show the truth to simple people and children than to conditioned grown-up people.

You can’t please everyone. If you try, you become like them. Our only concern should be for our own ascent. This is not to say that we should not assist and encourage the ascent of others. But we should offer our hand only when asked. Otherwise, we are wasting time that is better spent attending to our own affairs. Surely these pearls have been cast millions of times in millions of ways, and still only a small few have ever made true use of them. The spiritual mysteries themselves require strict adherence to a moral code. The spiritual mysteries protect themselves in ways that are beyond our hands, and it matters little how clearly we state them since only those who are truly committed to the labour will ever benefit from our words.

“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” – Lao Tzu

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

A person changes because they decide to change, not because another person makes them change. An Avatar can certainly promote change in others and create situations in which change is favourable, but unless the other person in some way agrees (consciously or unconsciously) to change, the Avatar cannot “change them.” We do not change the society/world by changing the world—we change the world by changing our own selves first. An Avatar who expresses their core self fully and without reservation changes the world by their mere existence. Such an individual automatically creates situations in which others can change themselves.

“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.” – Kahlil Gibran

You can only save yourself. You cannot save others, not even your loved ones. Depending on their own karmic debt, some of them are going to lose their souls, no matter how much you try to help them. Everyone is at different stages of spiritual development or evolution of individual consciousness (Atman). Biological relation is meaningless in spirituality. Each has to go at his or her own pace. Each has to cut his or her own way through the jungle.

Our society can change if we want it to. The society is a reflection of all the individuals. But there are those (maybe a few thousand individuals) who have deliberately held back humanity from its rightful way of spiritual evolution in order to feed their own insatiable appetite for political power, riches, and attention. And they will continue to do so.

There have been many Avatars/Sons of God/Messiahs/Prophets with divine missions to teach and inspire us to change ourselves and the world. But it seems, at least statistically and generally speaking, that they have all failed.

Even if billions of people change, we are still powerless against those who run the world. There is no hope for any real positive change, not unless these people change. The only way we’ll get the change that people want is through some sort of spiritual revolution. The least we can do now is to have some kind of unity among so-called spiritual people. But look how divided we are. Spiritual people cannot even agree among themselves.

The U.K.’s population is 64 million. The U.S.’s population is 316 million. Just having a few hundred or even few thousand likes on your spiritual posts on Facebook is not going to change anything. You need millions of people to be interested in spirituality. And that’s not going to happen when spiritual people are so divided among themselves.

“We have in this country, as well as in others, many institutions and organisations devoted to spiritual uplift of man; but, they are all caught up in the politics of competition for prestige and power, and in the game of personal aggrandizement.” – Sai Baba

Enlightened ones and spiritual people must learn to organize as effectively as fanatical religions/demons.

“United we stand, divided we fall.” Save Yourself.

In control of your Genes/ CHAPTER 45

“What you think you become.” – Buddha

“We become what we contemplate.” – Plato

You become what you think, feel, and do all day long.

It is “consciousness” that is the driving force of evolution. The Atman-self (individual awareness/consciousness) never really stops learning and evolving during the course of its existence. Our genetic inheritance is a manifestation of karma and the lessons we must learn during incarnation. In this sense, they do have to do with one’s spiritual maturity, but often this connection doesn’t appear “logical.” For example, you can’t say that a person born with a genetic defect is necessarily spiritually immature. In fact, quite the opposite might be true considering that the lessons brought by genetic defects can often require a great amount of spiritual maturity to live with.

“You create yourself moment to moment. You are not born as a fixed entity, but only as a infinite potentiality.” – Osho

You are in control of your genes. Genes can be activated and deactivated by signals from the environment. This “environment” that your genes respond to also includes your conscious thoughts, emotions, and unconscious beliefs. Cellular biologist Bruce Lipton is one of the leading authorities on how emotions can regulate genetic expression, which are explained in-depth in his books “The Biology of Belief” and “Spontaneous Evolution.”

The new science reveals that your perceptions control your biology, and this places you in the driver’s seat, because if you can change your perceptions, you can shape and direct your own genetic readout.

Our destiny is in our own hands. You are NOT predetermined by your parents’ genes. You hold your destiny in your own hands within certain limits. Your physical body is programmable by intention. DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by intention when you merge with Universal Consciousness/Brahman. This is the key to prolonging your lifespan on Earth.

A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France shows how your thoughts can cause specific molecular changes to your genes.

“To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that shows rapid alterations in gene expression within subjects associated with mindfulness meditation practice,” says study author Richard J. Davidson, founder of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds and the William James and Vilas Research Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

You are a wave/Atman-self with the root in the ocean/Brahman-Self.

Life isn’t just about the unbecoming of one’s previous conditioning. Unbecoming is a small step on the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Life is about consciously evolving yourself to return to the Source. You are becoming what you think, feel, and do all day long.

“Each of you has struggled upwards from the stone to plant, from plant to animal, from animal to man! Do not slide back into the beast; rise higher to Divinity, shining with the new effulgence of love.” – Sai Baba

The concept of realisation is a problem. It can be misleading. Self-evolution is a better concept. All life forms and species on Earth are evolving, along with humans to the next stage. In each incarnation we bring our whole unredeemed karma with us, both positive and negative. The goal of Life is to reach or rejoin with the Universal Consciousness/Eternal Tao/Brahman-Self in order to be free from the wheel of Samsara. It is a process.

“You, I, we reincarnate over and over. We live many lives, and store up much experience. Some are older souls than others and so they know more.”– Henry Ford

“Just as the soul acquires a childhood body, a youth body, and an old age body during this life; similarly, the soul acquires another body after death.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.13)

“The physical body it casts off during death to the new physical body it acquires in reincarnation.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 15.08)

“Just as a person puts on new garments after discarding the old ones; similarly, the living entity or the individual soul acquires new bodies after casting away the old bodies.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.22)

When you say you are from India or the United States, you are a Hindu or Jew, your job is this or that, etc., you are identifying with your body and mind. When you empty your mind and realise your Atman, you feel deep down that you are not merely the body or the mind, but that you are the awareness/consciousness. Then you can perceive the difference in your awareness and the awareness/consciousness of other human beings, trees, birds, animals, mountain, ocean, stars, moons, asteroids, and everything that exists in this infinite Universe.

Universal Consciousness (Brahman) is the same for all the infinite number of different types of individual awarenesses/selves in this Universe. Everything in nature is a unique expression of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Everything in nature has its own unique Atman (awareness/consciousness). Are you an elephant? No, you are not aware of what an elephant is aware of right now. Your awareness is different to its awareness. Are you Mr. Bush? No. Are you an asteroid? No. Then how can you claim to be the Brahman-Self/God literally? Unless your Atman merges with infinite number of different types of individual awarenesses, you are NOT Brahman-Self. You are just your individual self (Atman-self) with the root in your eternal Atman, and ultimately in Brahman-Self.

“Like the Ganga rushing towards the sea from where its waters are derived, the Jeevi (individual soul) must hurry towards Brahman from which it has separated.” – Sai Baba

Karma /The Law of Cause and Effect/ CHAPTER 46

“The recognition of the law of the cause and effect, also known as karma, is a fundamental key to understand how you’ve created your world, with actions of your body, speech and mind. When you truly understand karma, then you realize you are responsible for everything in your life. It is incredibly empowering to know that your future is in your hands.” – Keanu Reeves

“Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap.” – Galatians 6:7

“By self alone is evil done, by self alone does one suffer. By self alone is evil left undone, by self alone does one obtain Salvation. Salvation and Perdition depend upon self; no man can save another.” – Buddha

You cannot plant a mango seed and expect a banana tree to grow. You reward and punish yourself as the result of your own lifetimes of evolution (thoughts, feelings, and actions).

Our karma is driven by our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Every thought, feeling, or action has a positive or a negative consequence. Every action produces consequence and karma whether we intend it or not. This effect arises because everything is interconnected. We must each and every one of us face the consequences of our actions. Everything in your life has happened because of individual and group/collective karma. It is too complex to generalize what action will cause negative karma for every individual. The Divine Fire of karma is what leads us to inevitable perfection, and there’s no escaping it.

An individual’s accumulated karma in past lives is what causes the physical body and the life circumstances which that body must experience or undergo in this lifetime. Our genetic inheritance is a manifestation of karma and the lessons we must learn during incarnation. In each incarnation we bring our whole unredeemed karma with us, both positive and negative. We are the product of our accumulated karma, yet most of us are only conscious of our most recent accumulations. Negative karma is the consequence of past actions. It is not a punishment. Karma occurs in order for us to learn the lessons that need to be learned so that we can advance and evolve. To resolve your karma, learn the lesson it seeks to teach you. The lesson with negative karma is to never repeat the action that caused the negative karma. It is redeemed when you change your behaviour, and not only just suffer its effects. The lesson with positive karma is to multiply positivity and pass it on freely (selfless service). Karma is resolved only when you have completely integrated its lesson.

We each have our own karma and thus face certain events and miss out on others.

If you want anything in life, you’ve got to make the effort for it—embody and become it. If you don’t succeed in this lifetime, you will reincarnate until you do. In that sense, it will all balance out. But God, Nature, or whatever you call it will not reach down to you. God is no partial benefactor; you reap only what you sow. You must consciously evolve in that direction. Alternatively, you can be completely content with what you have and merge with Brahman/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Eternal Tao when you die.

Seldom is the Siddha/Avatar allowed to interfere with another’s karmic debt.

We incur group/collective karma and personal karma. Personal karma and group karma are inexorably entwined. Some diseases cannot presently be resolved on an individual basis because they are rooted in the group/collective karma. The group/collective karma is an expression of the Divine/Brahman Will. The Divine, therefore, does not violate its own will. Only when the Divine Will is fulfilled regarding the group karma does the right person and circumstance appear who can do this curing.

It has been said by many sages that karma is what binds us to the wheel of incarnation and to the temporal realm. The only way to liberate oneself from being bound to the endless cycle of incarnation is to redeem karma in the instant of its creation.

“When someone has a strong intuitive connection, Buddhism suggests that it’s because of karma, some past connection.” – Richard Gere

Jesus didn’t die for your sins (karmic debt). If Jesus died for your sins, then why do you believe you still have sins and call everyone sinners? Jesus was not a human sacrifice by God to God. Church authorities made that up. It was/is a marketing strategy. He died because of the sins of those who crucified him (group/collective karma).

Everyone has to deal with their karmic debt.

“Karma is the cause of births, the jeevi (soul) being compelled to undergo another ordeal of for clearing its accounts and becoming free of both credit and debit.” – Sai Baba

“Do not impose on others what you do not wish for yourself.” – Confucius (551-479 BCE)

“Do unto others as you would have them do to you” – Luke 6:31

“God has no preferences and prejudices; His is but reaction, reflection and resound.” – Sai baba

“God is not involved in either rewards or punishments. He only re-flects, re-sounds and re-acts!” – Sai baba

Dharma (Righteousness)/Morality/ CHAPTER 47

“It is better to do nothing than to do what is wrong. For whatever you do, you do to yourself.” – Buddha

“Wise men are sensitive to right and wrong. They cease doing anything as soon as they see that it is wrong; they are grateful to anyone who calls their attention to such wrong acts.” – Buddha

“If you were to follow the Dharma purely out of love for me or because you respect me, I would not accept you as a disciple. But if you follow the Dharma because you have yourself experienced its truth, because you understand and act accordingly—only under these conditions have you the right to call yourself a disciple of the Exalted One.” – Buddha

That which is harmonious with the Absolute reality/Universal Legality/Divine is right, and that which is disharmonious with Universal Legality is wrong.

Those who have not achieved the inner Elemental Equilibrium base their morals upon external input—from society, loved ones, their parents, dogmatic religion, etc. But the Equilibrated individual bases their morality upon inner conscience alone.

The spiritual mysteries themselves require strict adherence to a moral code. The moral systems found in dogmatic religions are relative (to culture, family, etc.), and they inhibit the evolution of personal morals. The morality required to penetrate the spiritual mysteries is not relative—it is personal. So morality can be said to be both universal and personal.

“The aborigine in the forest shoots the birds; that is legitimate so far as his stage of life and his means of livelihood are concerned. But, the ascetic in the forest who is engaged in discovering the spring of Divine Love in himself will be committing a grievous wrong which will undermine his progress, if he denies love to the bird on the tree.” – Sai Baba

Success in penetrating the spiritual mysteries requires adherence to a very specific set of personal morals. This is another way in which the spiritual mysteries are self-protecting, for if a noncompatible morality is in place, then the door closes and progress is blocked. This is just a fact of Nature/Universal Legality.

By shifting the focus of attention from outside to within, we find the inner guide that replaces cultural mandates or even thinking—our conscience. Our conscience should guide us to, and guide us during the maintenance of, our inner Elemental Equilibrium, not the external input, not what someone else tells us is right or what we are brought up to think is right.

True morality is doing what your conscience dictates no matter what others do, or tell you to do. Blind fanaticism is doing what you are conditioned to do, no matter what is right.

Your conscience is the voice of your “Holy Guardian Angel”, whispering to you in every moment of your existence. It never misleads. Rely upon your own inner conscience. You know what is right or wrong for you. Your conscience is the clarity of your eternal self (Paramatman).

Dharma is what causes the evolution from animal human being to spiritual/divine human being. Atman (individual consciousness) evolves and merges with the Universal Self only through right living, thought, feelings, and actions.

“A magnet cannot attract a piece of iron covered with rust. Similarly God will not draw to Himself an impure person.” – Sai Baba

“Attach yourself to the Highest, call it by any name, conceive it in any form. But, remember, without Dharma you cannot attain it.” – Sai Baba

Union with Divine/Brahman-Self/Source and miraculous abilities are only attainable in the presence of highly developed morality. As the alchemists say, “You will not transmute anything unless you transmute yourself first.”

Here, within our temporal realm, you (Atman-self) have free will, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice. You have no choice but to redeem your karma.

Different countries have very different laws, because they are man-made and subjective. But the spiritual laws are universal and apply to all human beings. Most people falsely believe that the man-made laws are divine laws. They obey these laws and disobey the mandates of their hearts.

“The determined scholar and the man of virtue will not seek to live at the expense of injuring their virtue. They will even sacrifice their lives to preserve their virtue complete.” – Confucius

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.” – Frederick Douglass

“Morality is of the highest importance—but for us, not for God.” – Albert Einstein

Unless your righteousness surpasses that of the dogmatic religions and modern society, you will certainly not enter the eternal realm.

Ethics in the Bible has had a seriously negative effect on societal morality. There are many examples of deplorable morality found all through the Bible. Hating other religions seem fundamental to Christianity. Research shows that atheists are more moral than Christians. Over 74% of American inmates identify themselves as Christians while atheists make up less than 10%. Biblical Christian ethics did not come from God, but rather from men who came up with a set of laws that favored those already in power, and then claimed those laws were dictated by God.

“The Bible tells us to be like God, and then on page after page it describes God as a mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the political behaviour of Western Civilization.” – Robert Anton Wilson

“With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil – that takes religion.” – Steven Weinberg

Generally speaking, we cannot change the laws of nature such as gravity, entropy, the speed of light, laws of thermodynamics, and so on. But we can change the man-made things like capitalism, the economy, currency, free enterprise…

Some say that Liberalism has been the corrupting agent for the moral breakdown in modern society. Liberalism has its limits. Dharma should be fostered in our modern society. Intellect should be in harmony with Dharma.

“Of all the creatures ever made he (man) is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he is the only one…that possesses malice…The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.” – Mark Twain

“Whenever there is a decline of Dharma and a predominance of ADharma (Unrighteousness), then I (Universal Self) manifest Myself. I appear from time to time for protecting the good, for transforming the wicked, and for establishing world order.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 4.07-08)

Practice/ CHAPTER 48

“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?” – Buddha

“Tomorrow’s battle is won during today’s practice.” – Japanese Proverb

“Wisdom springs from meditation; without meditation wisdom wanes. Having known these two paths of progress and decline, let a man so conduct himself that his wisdom may increase.” – Buddha

“If you accept and practice my teaching then you are very near to me even though you are far away.” – Buddha

“The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by any constant vigorous spiritual practice—such as meditation—with perseverance, and by detachment.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.35)

“Though we often live unconsciously, “on automatic pilot”, every one of us can learn to be awake. It just takes practice.” – Buddha

“One should practice meditation for self—purification.” – Krishna (B. Gita, 6.11 – 12)

“It is easy to talk on religion, but difficult to practice it.” – Ramakrishna

Ten minutes of practice is worth more than years of preaching.

Mindless parroting of spiritual/religious/scientific dogmas that are meaningless and cannot be practiced is just a waste of time. In spirituality, book learning is of no value unless you put it into practice. Book learning can become a bad habit and a hindrance. Book learning leads to contradictions. Contradiction and logical fallacies are the sign of the pseudo-gurus/teachers, the book learners and the theorists. Haphazard reading of spiritual books will lead to mental confusion and, eventually, desperation, preventing you from ever learning anything.

The experience of true sages is only a guide, only a map, only a chart. It is your own experience that matters. No secondhand account can equal the firsthand objective experience.

There is no shortcut. There’s no less “practice and work” to the pseudo/neo-Advaita path than there is in the ancient Advaita path.

Regular practice is important. Practice makes perfect.

True spiritual initiation is about developing one’s own faculties of perception. It’s not about relying upon what others believe or tell you, or what a book tells you, etc. It’s about exploring, discovering, and objectively perceiving for yourself. Most things in spirituality we need to figure out for ourselves, through our own practice. Finish your readings and give your whole life up to the practice.

True spirituality DEMANDS practice and the constant challenging of even our most precious beliefs.

The Emptiness of Mind is something that gets deeper and deeper the longer you practice it. A natural by-product of the Emptiness of Mind practice is an increase in the immediacy of your self-awareness. In other words, you become continuously aware of yourself, and at a deeper and deeper level the longer you have practiced.

The more one practices meditation, the easier one can produce and maintain alpha rhythm, and the longer a continuous alpha rhythm sustains, the more often one experiences states of higher awareness.

Practice of meditation is accompanied by decreases in neuroticism, depression, anxiety, irritability, and hypertension. It increases self-control, self-actualisation, and happiness. Recent studies reveal significant and dramatic decreases in the heart rate, respiration rate, and oxygen consumption.

The work of spiritual initiation must pervade the whole of one’s life, as must the results of that practice. While this does require private “special time” work, if what is gained during that private work is not integrated into one’s every moment of existence, then it is to no avail.

Eventually, your “practice” becomes fully integrated into your entire life and it’s no longer a matter of spending just 10% of your day! Eventually, 100% of your life becomes spiritual.

At first, you see only the small self of the personal mind, but as time goes by and your practice deepens, higher, more inclusive levels of Self reveal themselves within the context of your emptiness. Ultimately, this leads to the realization of the Unitary Self—the One Self—pure BEing.

“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” – Lao Tzu

Human beings need spiritual food (self-transformation/purification) for the soul-spirit everyday more than food for the stomach. Have a timetable for spiritual practice, just as you have now for eating.

The Atman/soul yearns for meditation. The union with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Self is Bliss/Ecstatic. Reluctance or mental resistance only comes from the false ego/mind/conditioned mind-self. Enquire to whom is the reluctance/mental resistance?

The state of consciousness at the last moment of life is considered so crucial that Enlightened/Self-realised beings (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts) spend their whole life preparing for it.

Perfection exists ONLY in the eternal realm after physical death. Unless you are able to raise your own awareness (Atman) to the level of Brahman/Universal Consciousness with lifelong practice, it will not at all be possible for you at the time of death. And the state of consciousness at death determines your destiny.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: Who is the meditator?
HB: The Atman/soul. Who is babbling? The Self (God)? God bless Self.

“Meditation makes you innocent, it makes you childlike. In that state, miracles are possible. That state is pure magic. A great transformation happens – in innocence you transcend the mind, and to transcend the mind is to become the awakened one, the enlightened one.

When one has innocence there are no questions. Innocence wonders, it does not question. It experiences the awe of existence and life, the beauty. It is constantly wondering what it is all about, but it is not a question. It is a heartfelt feeling. One Is surprised every moment. One is always in for a great surprise.” – Osho

PA: The Self is not a follower of any practise. So who is doing the practise to reach the Self?
HB: The Self is also not a pseudo/neo-Advaitin guru/teacher. So who is doing the teaching to whom about Self? And who conditioned this self with pseudo/neo-Advaita? If we are literally Brahman-Self, why do we need to surrender, and to what? The Self includes EVERY thing—who, what, when, where and why—simultaneously. This is the multi-dimensionally infinite Unity of BEing.

PA: For the first time, you do not have to do anything. Simply sit quiet for one moment in time. That is all that is required to realize existence, consciousness, and bliss. Simply keep quiet and don’t think. That’s all. You have not to do anything.
HB: Really? That’s easy. How long does it take? Illusionist David Blaine spent 44 days in a transparent box above the River Thames in London. He didn’t realise anything. He still doesn’t know that there is the real magic or Siddhis. Find someone who is unhappy or depressed and put your ideas/concepts to test to see if it works first. True meditation/practice is a very subtle process, and only a few even understand how to practice correctly.

PA: All efforts and practices are for the mind.
HB: What do you call silence, surrender, detachment, emptiness of mind and observation/watching? Spirituality is all about practice. There are more advanced practices that you can never even comprehend with your pseudo/neo-Advaitin mind. To go beyond your pseudo/neo-Advaitin mind and logical fallacies, you need to practice first.

PA: Whenever we meditate, it is the ego that takes the role of the meditator, so meditation has not brought any result so far.
HB: In Hinduism, coconut breaking is a symbolic act/practice of breaking the ego. The false “I”/ ego refers to the negative aspects of the personality. As the spiritual aspirant transforms those negative aspects through the work of character transformation, a new sense of self emerges (the true “I”). It is only through true practice/meditation/self-transformation that you can know your true self.

PA: But with all these practices, the mind is not yet obliterated.
HB: That’s why true practice is important.

PA: So there was one man who practiced; for a number of years he practiced, and in the end, what happened? One thought comes in his mind, and he rose up and returned to his previous habits. You see?
HB: Most people don’t understand the practice. In the name of meditation, they are doing something else. Even if you understand the practice, it is not easy. Most people give up. Only a few succeed.

PA: When I say, “Keep quiet,” it is not a practice.
HB: Do you know the meaning of the concept “practice”?

PA: This practice is not even a practice…Both practice and nonpractice are false ideas.
HB: Don’t you see you are contradicting yourself? Then what is a true idea?

Surrender/ CHAPTER 49

“Just surrender unto My (Universal Self) will, and renounce the attachment to, and the anxiety for, the fruits of all work—by learning to accept all results as Divine grace—with equanimity.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 12.11)

“Just surrender completely to My (Universal Self) will with firm faith and loving devotion. I shall liberate you from all sins, the bonds of Karma. Do not grieve.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 18.66)

“A person is said to have attained yogic perfection when he or she has no desire for sensual pleasures, or attachment to the fruits of work, and has renounced all personal selfish motives.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 6.03-04)

“Let your will (Divine Will) be done, not mine” = self-surrender.

Surrendering is merging with your Atman (individual awareness), and then ultimately with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

Surrender is the recognition that the Atman is oneself. Surrender means your mind surrenders to your Atman and still exists in harmony with Atman. The false ego surrenders to your Atman and still exists in harmony as pure/true I. And ultimately your Atman merges with Brahman. Self-surrender is BEing your whole self.

Spirituality is a journey of self-surrender. Surrender is self-acceptance. Total self-surrender is unconditional. Total self-surrender is difficult in the beginning. Everything in spirituality is easier said than done. Total surrender is possible only after years of spiritual practice/meditation. Prepare gradually to surrender.

Surrendering is letting go of your resistance and opening up to your total self. Surrender is trusting your ultimate self. Self-surrender is relaxing and melting into the Universe and becoming united with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Meditation is a process of surrender. Love is Surrender. Surrender is transformation from selfish to selfless, mind to no-mind, from head to heart to Atman to Brahman.

When you are in harmony with yourself, you are in harmony with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

You can’t control everything in life. You don’t carry the luggage on your head when you are travelling on a train or plane. Apply the same principle in life. Relax, let go, and go with the flow. Surrender all effort and its reward to Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

Self-surrender is a matter of being in harmony with the Universe and consciously participating in that harmony through your actions. Many of those actions “shape” the flow, but in a way that is in harmony with the flow.

We, and our actions, are a part of the flow. We are the enacting of the Divine “Will”. Surrender is being in harmony with the Absolute reality/Universal Legality. The petty will is transformed into the Divine/Brahman Will. Ultimately, none of one’s will conflicts with the Divine/Brahman Will, and there is then a direct and immediate manifestation of one’s free will. The petty ego gives way to the Divine/Brahman, and all that one does is done in perfect harmony with the Universe Legality. That is what true freedom is about.

We humans are the only creatures on this planet who, as a whole, do not automatically live in an absolute harmony with Universal Legality.

“Do not struggle. Go with the flow of things, and you will find yourself at one with the mysterious unity of the Universe.” – Chuang Tzu

Do not surrender to the physical body of any guru or any human being.

“The greatest obstacle on the path of surrender is egoism and mineness or possessiveness.” – Sai Baba

Q&A
Q: In Luke 23:46 when Jesus shouted, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit,” and with those words he breathed his last, did Jesus surrender to Krishna or the Universal Self?
A: The Universal Self

Astronomy/Cosmology/ CHAPTER 50

Imagine yourself (astral projecting/travelling) on the surface of the Moon and look back at Earth, and you will perceive that all those differences and nationalistic traits are meaningless, and there is only one family of humanity.

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.” – Buddha

The inner self-enquiry and the outer study of astronomy/cosmology (exploring the Universe) are the two sides of the same question: the search for who we are.

The Universe is your home. Be a citizen of the Universe. Humanity is one family. Only ignorance, fear, and delusion create this division.

Human beings hold sway over an infinitesimal part of the physical Universe. The whole of human existence occurs within the blink of the infinite (Brahman eye)—we are nowhere near as important to the Universe as we like to think.

“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.” – Plato

“Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.” – Socrates

“Astronomy, as nothing else can do, teaches men humility.” – Arthur C. Clarke

“Astronomy taught us our insignificance in Nature.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.” – Albert Einstein

“I love to revel in philosophical matters—especially astronomy. I study astronomy more than any other foolishness there is.” – Mark Twain

“The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us—there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, or falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” – Carl Sagan

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.” – Carl Sagan

“The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.” – Carl Sagan

“When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe; we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the Universe is in us. Many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

When you perceive the planets, Sun, stars, galaxies, and the rest of the Universe with awe, with wonder, you realize that most people are wasting their whole life on meaningless consumerism and hedonism.

In spirituality/religion, we explore the same Universe with our soul/Atman. We perceive the laws of nature as habits of Beings. We merge with the laws of nature. In spirituality/religion, space-time is not an illusion. It is ultimately infinite and eternal.

Astronomy/Cosmology is the key to universal/eternal consciousness. To truly know thyself is to know that the entire infinite physical Universe is Self. All is Brahman/Self.

The physical Universe is NOT inside your skull. The Universe is out there even for the Enlightened/Self-realised human beings. We are Atman beings, NOT Brahman-Being. No one can comprehend that which is infinite and eternal. Expand your awareness and merge with the Universal Consciousness. Only then can you perceive the entire Universe within and as self (not literally while we are here on this temporal realm, though).

“The cosmic vision can be acquired either by watching the Universe or one’s own inner Cosmos. Man has only to discover himself.” – Sai Baba

“Only God knows the Universe. To know the Universe, one must become God.” – Sai Baba

Infinity/ CHAPTER 51

“Nature is an infinite sphere whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” – Blaise Pascal

“Moreover, the universe as a whole is infinite, for whatever is limited has an outermost edge to limit it, and such an edge is defined by something beyond. Since the universe has no edge, it has no limit; and since it lacks a limit, it is infinite and unbounded. Moreover, the universe is infinite both in the number of its atoms and in the extent of its void.” – Epicurus

“If the Universe is really completely self contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor end; it would simply be.” – Stephen Hawking

“There can be no centre in infinity.” – Lucretius

Infinity is the ultimate mystery. Infinity is incomprehensible. Within infinity, EVERY point is at the exact centre of that infinity. From every point within an infinite space, space stretches infinitely in ALL directions, therefore, each point is at the centre of the infinity, no matter its location or its size. Each and every physical thing (a tree, bird, animal, plant, rock, moon, star, galaxy, and so on) is the centre of our infinite Universe.

“Brahman is All-Pervading, infinite, mysterious, incomprehensible.” – Upanishads

“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The Tao is infinite, eternal. It gives birth to infinite worlds. It contains uncountable galaxies. All things are born from it. I don’t know who gave birth to it. Every being in the Universe is an expression of the Tao. You can’t know it, but you can be it. Just realize where you come from.” – Lao Tzu

The One Self/Brahman/Eternal Tao is an infinite, all-encompassing, universal being. Brahman encompasses ALL that has being (i.e., existence).

Use whatever term you prefer. It all means the same thing to the Enlightened/Self-realised beings.

Brahman = Parabrahman = The One Self = Eternal Tao = Nothingness = Infinite void = Source = Metaphysical light = Unity = Divine = Elohim = Kether = IHVH = Nature = Adi-Buddha = Great Spirit = All-Pervading Consciousness = Absolute/Universal Consciousness

The names, words, and concepts people use to describe the realms of experience beyond the ordinary physical world are arbitrary, and change from place to place and from time to time in much the same way that languages do. Many names are given to one thing. The words/concepts or even language may change, but what it symbolizes (true meaning/essential nature) remains the same. It is the true meaning that matters.

Ultimately, there is only One Universal Consciousness, only One Infinite Being, only One Now, only One “I” (Universal “I”).

Space is infinite. Therefore, there is no outside. You cannot go beyond it. It is everywhere. It is all-encompassing. In this sense, it is One.

If something is eternal (infinite in time), it has always existed and will continue to exist. It has no beginning and no end. No point of origin. It is uncreated.

Infinity is simply incomprehensible. The infinite is unknowable.

“Physics is having a nervous breakdown. Nature is smarter than we are.” – Michio Kaku

Omnipotence simply means that Brahman encompasses all power, all force, and all energy in the Universe. This power is infinite in terms of quantity and quality.

Omniscience means that Brahman Awareness/Consciousness is infinite. All awareness/ consciousness is encompassed by the Brahman Awareness/Consciousness. Therefore you (Atman-self) cannot go beyond it.

Universal Love means that we are encompassed within Brahman, so this is really an aspect of how Brahman naturally sustains ItSelf. It is not a gift given to us, but rather an impersonal fact of Brahman nature.

Omnipresence means everywhere, every when (infinite duration or eternity), and immanence/indwelling. Brahman is indwelling—fills Its own Self.

The physical Universe has its existence within Brahman/Universal Consciousness/ Nothingness/Eternal Tao. We and the infinite Universe live and move and have our being within Brahman. The evolution of the Universe within the All-Pervading Consciousness is like the growth of the baby in the mother’s womb. All matter and individual consciousness (Atman) exist in Brahman alone. There is no reality outside Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

The undifferentiated zygote became all the trillions of cells in your body. In the same way, the undifferentiated Brahman/Universal Consciousness is indivisible, without parts, and is becoming the infinite physical Universe while still remaining the unchangeable reality (undifferentiated Brahman).

Infinity plus one equals infinity. Infinity minus one still equals infinity. Brahman = Infinity. Undifferentiated Brahman/Universal Consciousness plus the creation/projection/manifestation of the infinite Universe and/or the reabsorption/dissolution/unmanifestation is still the Undifferentiated Universal Consciousness, the eternal witness, and BEing. The infinite potential of the Universal Consciousness remains the same and unchanged. Infinity remains infinity. The unchangeable Brahman expressing itself behind the ever-changing physical Universe without forfeiting its nature is a great mystery.

No one can comprehend that which is infinite and eternal. Brahman/Eternal Tao is UNKNOWABLE. Remain in wonder.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: I am beyond Brahman. I am Parabrahman.
HB: You mean you are a billionaire, but not rich enough to be a millionaire. You are playing with concepts, you fool. This is dissociation and denial, not Self-realisation. The one Universal Self is an all-inclusive Self. It is not exclusively this or that. If you define Brahman as infinite and eternal, then there is no beyond infinity. Brahman = Parabrahman. Parabrahman and Brahman are just man-made concepts. Words/concepts are only symbols for what we mean. It is the meaning that matters.

“The Supreme Spirit is the source of origin as well as dissolution of the entire Universe.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.06)

“There is nothing higher than the Supreme Being. Everything in the Universe is strung on the Supreme Being, like jewels are strung on the thread of a necklace.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.07)

PA: Then I am in the void, Nothingness, or light.
HB: You are not anywhere. Just get down here and forget this pseudo/neo-Advaita.

It makes no difference what concept you use. You can just use the concept Nature. There is something (not-THING) that is uncreated; call it what you will. Once you have defined it as the infinite and eternal, you cannot say something is beyond that. You can drop all the other concepts. If it is infinite and eternal, there is nothing beyond it. If there is something beyond it, then it is not infinite and eternal. It must continuously exist eternally. It can never “not-BE.” There is no place outside of it. It is an infinite continuum (without break, cessation, or interruption; without intervening time). It is immutable. It is infinite. Therefore it cannot be added to or subtracted from. The whole still remains whole. It is that which IS. It will always remain what it is NOW. It is only in this sense that it is ONE. Find out with your spirit what it is and the rest is silence, bliss, awe and wonder, magic, humility, and reverence.

“I AM THAT WHICH IS.” – Temple of Isis at Sais, Ancient Egypt

“Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.” – Albert Einstein

“We know nothing about [God, the world] at all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren. Possibly we shall know a little more than we do now. But the real nature of things; that we shall never know, never.” – Albert Einstein

The universe is alive and a self–aware./ CHAPTER 52

“Matter, too, has life.” – Albert Einstein

In science, Matter is Energy (E=mc2). In spirituality, Matter = Energy = Universal Consciousness/awareness. Therefore, matter is Universal Consciousness and Universal Consciousness is matter. Matter is a state of consciousness, like a solid, a liquid, or a gas. Physical form is the densest manifestation of Universal Consciousness. The visible physical Universe is Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

“Matter is spirit at its lowest point of manifestation and spirit is matter at its highest [point of manifestation].” – Helena Blavatsky

“Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception.” – Helena Blavatsky

Every natural form in nature is alive, but in a non-human way. In philosophy, it is known as panpsychism. Morphic resonance and morphic fields are terms introduced by British biologist Rupert Sheldrake to mean Atman/eternal Atman. Every physical form in nature is an aperture through which Brahman is expressing part of itSelf.

“…there is a mind diffused throughout the whole Universe…” – Socrates

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulating consciousness.” – Max Planck

“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.” – Max Plank

“What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” – Albert Einstein

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.” – Nikola Tesla

Matter and Spirit (Consciousness/awareness) are the same, differing only in degree of density like ice and water vapour. Matter is Universal Consciousness/awareness. Matter and Universal Consciousness are but the two poles of the same thing, like cold and hot. Universal Consciousness begins where matter ends, and matter begins where Universal Consciousness ends.

Universal Consciousness is the source of matter. In spirituality, the Universal Consciousness comes first and matter second. Consciousness creates the matter. Therefore, true sages look at everything from the perspective of consciousness.

Nature is not dead, but man remains unaware of nature’s awareness. The Universe is already self-aware. It is human beings who are asleep. Spiritual awakening is when your conscious awareness is in absolute sync with the objective Universe/reality. You (Atman) are an aperture through which part of Brahman is aware in the temporal realm. You are not what you believe you are. You are not what others believe you are. You are part of Brahman/Universal awareness, which is aware through your temporal bodies.

“Whatever is born—animate or inanimate—know them to be born from the union of Spirit and matter.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 13.26)

Universe is a Being/ CHAPTER 53

“The Universe, or Cosmos, is a living being endowed with a soul.” – Plato (428 BC-348 BC)

“There are two entities in the cosmos: The changeable Temporal Beings, and the unchangeable Eternal Being (Spirit). All created beings are subject to change, but the Spirit does not change.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 15.16)

When I look at any forms in nature (tree, animal, planet, Sun, star, galaxy), I do not see a dead matter. I feel a living soul. I perceive a living spirit. And I perceive an immortal spirit in the eternal realm.

The One Self/Brahman/Eternal Tao encompasses all existence (entire Universe), past, present, and future, simultaneously and eternally. Brahman/Eternal Tao encompasses both the physical and the non-physical realms, simultaneously. The entire infinity of the manifest Universe IS Brahman—it is not the mere shell which houses Brahman. There is no separation between the “body” of Brahman and Brahman itself.

“The Nirguna (Formless) and the Saguna (with Form) aspects are both the same Godhead.” – Sai Baba

“The Universe is a single living creature that encompasses all living creatures within it.” – Plato

“By awakening the Native American teachings, you come to the realization that the Earth is not something simply that you build upon and walk upon and drive upon and take for granted. It is a living entity. It has consciousness.” – Edgar Cayce

A tree is a being. A mountain is a being. Planet Earth is a being. Planet Saturn is a being. The Sun is a being. The star Alpha Centauri is a being. The Milky Way Galaxy is a being. The Andromeda Galaxy is a being. The entire infinite, unknowable physical Universe is a being. It is alive and self-aware. There is no such thing as a non-being. Some use the concept non-being to mean the consciousness component (spirit) of the natural physical form in nature. But the physical form is the condensed spirit. The physical form of planet Earth is the condensed spirit of planet Earth. The infinite physical Universe is the condensed Brahman/Universal Consciousness. What is, is the absolute/universal Being.

“This Universe is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence…a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.” – Plato

“The Earth functions as if it were a living organism.” – James Lovelock

“A new consciousness is developing which sees the Earth as a single organism…” – Carl Sagan

“A “vacuum” is impossible. Matter must be eternal.” – Aristotle (According to Aristotle, the basis of the entire physical Universe was something that he called prime or first matter.)

The prime or first matter is the Universal Consciousness/All-Pervading Consciousness. Undifferentiated Universal Consciousness is the one unchangeable reality behind the ever-changing physical Universe. Spirituality is not neuroscience. It is not literally about the human brain-bound consciousness/awareness. It is about the consciousness of matter itself, and therefore it is also within you, not only within you.

“The Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Then nothingness is infinitely intelligent!” – Stephen Hawking

The Universe did not pop into existence, uncaused, out of absolutely nothing. Only nothing will come of nothing. Nothing comes from nothing. For something to come into existence, there must be something else that already exists that caused it into existence. The fact that the Universe began to exist therefore implies that something (Universal Consciousness) became the Universe.

“There must be an immortal, unchanging being, ultimately responsible for all wholeness and orderliness in the sensible world.” – Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)

The First Cause is Uncreated, Eternal. The ultimate cause of the Universe is an eternal impersonal Being with neither beginning nor end.

“The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.” – Euclid

Impersonal God or Definition of God/ CHAPTER 54

“What could define God [is a conception of divinity] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God.” – Stephen Hawking

“The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by God one means the set of physical laws that govern the Universe, then clearly there is such a God.” – Carl Sagan

“I do not believe in a personal God… I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists.” – Albert Einstein

“My religion is cosmic, and my God is too universal.” – Albert Einstein

“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” – Albert Einstein

“If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the Universe so far as our science can reveal it.” – Albert Einstein

“In the East, God is not a person—God is the very stuff the Universe is made of. God is not a creator—God is creativity. And the creator and the creation are just two aspects of the same creative energy.” – Osho

Q&A
Q: I don’t believe God exists.
A: But you believe in what exists. God doesn’t exist in some place or in some realm. God is not in heaven. Heaven itself is Brahman. What exists is only Brahman. And you don’t know every not-thing or all non-physical realms that exist. That’s the problem. What do you think infinity is? If you accept infinity, you have already accepted Brahman, no matter what you call it.

Q: If God/Universal Consciousness became the Universe, what became God?
A: Formless Brahman is uncreated and an infinite regression. Brahman became Brahman. If something is eternal (infinite in time), it has always existed and will continue to exist. It has no beginning and no end. No point of origin. It is uncreated.

Q: I am a mystical scientist, but I still do not understand consciousness or the path to Union with Universal Consciousness, miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis), etc. Why not?
A: You are in the realm of mind/logic/intellect. You don’t know how to meditate (empty your mind) and feel and perceive the non-physical realms. Our physical senses are limited to the physical realm, but our subtle senses can perceive infinity, eternity, and Unity. Scientists use physical tools to explore the physical Universe, whereas the true sage uses their own self—their own physical, soul/astral, and spirit/mental bodies—as the tools of exploration. Physical tools can only measure the physical realm, but our subtle senses can explore the non-physical realm.

Fanatic (F) vs. Human being (HB)
F: Why are there so many gods (330 million) in the Hindu religion?
HB: It means 330 million angels or aspects of Brahman. But it should be infinite, not just 330 million. One Universal Consciousness/Brahman = infinite number of different types of individual consciousness in this physical Universe and the non-physical realms. The goal of Self-realisation/Enlightenment is to merges with infinite number of different types of individual consciousness or angels.

The 72 Names of God according to Hebrew and Kabbalistic Traditions are aspects of Brahman. The 99 names of God in Islam are aspects of Brahman.

And you? Are you still worshipping your false ego as the one God? “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder.”– James 2:18-20

Can you define your God?

F: He is a white male like President Bush, watching over us in the sky, who is jealous and proud of it; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a petty, unjust, racist, infanticidal, unforgiving control freak; a capriciously malevolent bully; a genocidal, megalomaniacal, anti-science, anti-woman…
HB: That’s your false ego/devil/false “I”. If one were to take this seriously, one would go mad. But to take this seriously, one must already be mad. Your sky daddy is just a mass cultural delusion. There is no such person in the sky, or the North Koreans would have shot him down with their nukes.

That said, there are those who are genuinely advanced in spirituality, but still perceive the formless Brahman in human form, but with universal qualities (not human qualities). It has to do with their mechanism of perception. They even can materialise this form in the physical realm; this process is known as materializing spirits or Evocation. Evocation is not known to science yet.

Some people are also confusing Avatars with Brahman. Avatars are Avatars. Brahman is Brahman.

Evolution is a fact/ CHAPTER 55

“Those who cavalierly reject the Theory of Evolution, as not adequately supported by facts, seem quite to forget that their own theory is supported by no facts at all. Like the majority of men who are born to a given belief, they demand the most rigorous proof of any adverse belief, but assume that their own needs none.” – Herbert Spencer

Evolution is a fact, not a theory. The creation and the evolution are just different dimensions of the same thing. Evolution IS creation, and vice versa. From the eternal perspective the “original” creation occurred all at once. But within the temporal realm, the Evolution is the sequential enactment of the eternal projection/creation. The creation is not something that happened. Rather, it’s something that’s happening. It is “consciousness” that is the driving force of evolution.

Human beings share a common heritage with all other species. For most of our history, people lived as clan-living hunter-foragers. The individual awareness/self (Atman) never really stops learning and evolving during the course of its existence. Our genetic inheritance is a manifestation of karma and the lessons we must learn during incarnation.

The manifest is the infinite physical Universe. Creation/Evolution is how the unmanifest became and is still becoming the manifest in the sequential realm.

Evolution

“Those who know that the duration of creation lasts 4.32 billion years and that the duration of destruction also lasts 4.32 billion years, they are the knowers of the cycles of creation and destruction.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.17)

“The Hindu religion is the only one of the world’s great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths. It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond, to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long. Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang. And there are much longer time scales still.” – Carl Sagan

“Each of you has struggled upwards from the stone to plant, from plant to animal, from animal to man! Do not slide back into the beast; rise higher to Divinity, shining with the new effulgence of Love.” – Sai Baba

“Man is the noblest of all animals, the final product of untold ages of progressive evolution; but, he is not consciously striving to live up to his heritage.” – Sai Baba

“All beings merge into My primary material Nature at the end of a cycle of just over 311 trillion solar years, and I (Universal Self/Brahman) create them again at the beginning of the next cycle.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 9.07)

Q&A
Q: Did God create human beings or did we evolve from a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees?
A: It’s both simultaneously. Even apes (and every natural form you see in nature/Universe) came out of the eternal realm/Nothingness/Brahman like the waves from the ocean. Brahman is also within the apes, and yet the apes are far from being Brahman-Self, just like the religious fanatics are so far from being their core self.

The eternal Atman (Paramatman) of apes has no beginning and no ending, and exists within the eternal realm. It projects/creates the Atman (individual self) of Apes into the physical temporal realm of space-time just like the process for human evolution.

Your religious scriptures are incomplete and missing a lot of truth to test your faith. Some missing pieces of the puzzle are far more important than what is in the religious scriptures.

Q: Do plants have consciousness or conscious life?
A: Consciousness exists in everything. Every form is condensed consciousness. Plants have their own unique consciousness/awareness. There are even carnivorous plants that eat animals. Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5aUIrooSt4

Q: Did we once live as dinosaurs?
A: Humans are not the descendants of the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs evolved from a different Paleozoic ‘branch’ than ours. The human evolutionary tree diverged from the reptilian branch long before the dinosaurs evolved. The dinosaurs are some kind of distant cousins of ours.

Q: Do you believe people reincarnate as animals?
A: No, only as human beings.

Q: Some New Age Truthers believe that if you deny their version of truth, when you die, you will reborn at the bottom of the ocean, the bottom of the food chain. Is this true?
A: Hell is not a physical place. Heaven and hell are experiences according to your accumulated karma as the soul enters the astral realm. Hellish experiences are only temporal and then your Atman reincarnates. Fanatical religions are always in the control business. It’s in a guilt-producing control business. It is part of their control tactic. And these New Age Truthers are doing the same.

Fanatic (F) vs. Human being (HB)
F: We believe Adam and Eve were the first human beings who had two sons, one of whom murdered the other, and yet all mankind is descended from two sons.
HB: So you believe the two sons can have children without women? The Bible then says Cain went to live among the people in the land of Nod. So who created the people in the land of Nod (Genesis 4)? You might as well believe all the religious fanatics are descended from Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. If ‘God’ had written these religious books—doesn’t that make God a liar? Use your common sense, not “conditioned mind” sense. Anyway, Jesus never said these things. These stories are allegorical and symbolic, not literal. And why do you want to believe these Jewish creation stories when Jesus is rejected in Judaism as a failed Jewish Messiah claimant?

F: God made heaven and earth and every living thing in six days and rested and was refreshed on the seventh day (Exodus 20:11).
HB: But did he then return to work on Monday? Who was in charge on Sunday? Another God? So is he retired now? God is not a white Republican dude. Grow up.

 

The Tao/ CHAPTER 56

“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. For lack of a better name, I call it the Tao. Since before time and space were, the Tao is. In the beginning was the Tao. The Tao is infinite, eternal. It was never born; thus it can never die. It gives birth to infinite worlds. It contains uncountable galaxies. All things are born from it. It nourishes infinite worlds. The Universe follows the Tao. The Tao follows only itself. All things issue from it; all things return to it. There was something formless and perfect before the Universe was born. The great Tao flows everywhere. Seamless, unnameable, it returns to the realm of nothing. Form that includes all forms, subtle, beyond all conception. It is hidden but always present. I don’t know who gave birth to it. It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities. The more you talk of it, the less you understand. Look, it cannot be seen—it is beyond form. Listen, it cannot be heard—it is beyond sound. Grasp, it cannot be held—it is intangible. Every being in the Universe is an expression of the Tao. You can’t know it, but you can be it. Just realize where you come from.” – Lao Tzu

Eternal Tao/Brahman/The source/Eternal realm—It is the ultimate cause of all things existing and created. It is the causal sphere. It is spaceless and timeless. It is the non-created, the indefinable, the incomprehensible. Everything has been created (projected) by it and is kept in balance by it. It encompasses ALL that has being (i.e., existence). Eternal Tao is nameless and all names. It is formless and all forms. It “cannot be named” for the simple reason that it is eternal, infinite, and non-sequential, and any “name” is a finite thing that can encompass only a finite part of the Infinite. The indefinite term “That” is used in the Upanishads to designate the Invisible-Absolute, because no concept or name can fully define It. The finite human awareness cannot encompass the whole of it, and therefore it is “incomprehensible”—this requires an eternal, infinite, non-sequential level of awareness that has been raised to be more than human.

The unity with the Eternal Tao must be so deep that during the meditation there is no Tao, neither within myself, nor without, subject and object being melted into one another so that there is nothing but “I am the eternal Tao.”

This is not merely saying with your lips/mind/conditioned mind-self “I am the eternal Tao”; you (Atman) become that so that you can BE that. It takes years of practice. This is the ultimate goal or purpose of life/human existence.

Infinite cycle/ CHAPTER 57

In Hinduism/Advaita, the Universe itself undergoes an immense, indeed infinite number of deaths and rebirths. In Hinduism, the time scales run from our ordinary day and night to a cycle of more than 311 trillion solar years. If we live in an oscillating Universe, then the Big Bang is not the creation of the Universe but merely the end of the previous cycle, the destruction of the last incarnation of the Universe. In the oscillating Universe, the Universe has no beginning and no end…and we are in the midst of an infinite cycle of deaths and rebirths of the Universe.

The Universe emerged from Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao, like the waves from the ocean, for no other reason than it is its nature to do so. The creation and dissolution of the Universes are like the waves of the ocean. Science says the virtual particles (they are real particles) are constantly popping in and out of existence. In the same way, the entire creation and dissolution of a Universe is but “as the twinkle of the eye” to Brahman.

The span of 311 trillion solar years is still transient—temporary, not permanent—but it is an eternity compared to the average human lifespan of just 70 years. (Just compare $70 to $311, 000,000,000,000). What is 70 years compared to 300 trillion years? Comparing 300 trillion years to eternity is pointless. Dinosaurs existed on Earth for about 165 million years (between 230 million years ago and 65 million years ago). Even after 165 million years on Earth, dinosaurs went extinct. You cannot even predict what might happen tomorrow. So it is meaningless to discuss what might happen to the Universe a trillion years from now. The Universe will be here for eternity, but you won’t be in 70 years from now. Focus on what is relevant. BE in the present moment. Instead of indulging in useless discussion, devote yourself here and now to know yourself, and make the most of this short life.

“This objective world (Universe) is as ageless as God. Who knows when God resolved upon the Universe? It is as beginningless as God; we cannot determine when it came into being but we can determine when it will end, at least for each of us.” – Sai Baba

Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao takes the form of our infinite, unknowable physical Universe. Avatar doesn’t literally mean Brahman takes human form. Brahman takes all the forms (planets, stars, asteroids, etc.) in this Universe. Human beings are part of the Universe.

Reincarnation is not immediate after death. Years, decades, and even centuries might pass between incarnations. The Tibetan word Bardo refers to the intermediate state between two lives on earth. In Sanskrit, it is antarabhāva, the stage between lives. It is the stage in the astral realm.

In Hinduism/Advaita, the Universe (the body/form of Brahman) itself undergoes an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths. We are Atman selves, and therefore it is incomprehensible to imagine what happens in an oscillating Universe at the cusps, at the transitions.

“Who really knows, and who can swear, how creation came, when or where!” – Veda

“After the previous Universe disappeared, time was incomprehensible” – Sai Baba

Nothing is ever dead; everything only emerges like waves from the ocean and then is reabsorbed back into the ocean. Nothing is ever dead; life and death are only projection/manifestation into the physical/temporal realm and reabsorption/dissolution/ unmanifestation back into non-physical/eternal realms.

There is no death, only the manifestation of Atman into the physical/temporal realm and unmanifestation back into the non-physical realm.

“There was never a time when these monarchs, you, or I did not exist; nor shall we ever cease to exist in the future.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.12)

“All beings are unmanifest, or invisible to our physical eyes before birth and after death. They manifest between the birth and the death only. What is there to grieve about?” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.28)

“All beings merge into My (Brahman-Self) primary material Nature at the end of a cycle of just over 311 trillion solar years, and I (Brahman-Self) create them again at the beginning of the next cycle.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 9.07)

Brahman is UNKNOWABLE/ CHAPTER 58

“I am ‘He who cannot be known.’” – The Egyptian Book of the Dead

You are only one of more than 7 billion people, on 1 planet out of 8 planets (and approximately 340 known moons), in 1 solar system out of 100 billion solar systems, in 1 galaxy out of 100 billion galaxies in the known Universe. The Universe is your home.

Our planet Earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago. Humans have really been on the planet for a fraction of the lifetime of the Earth. Archaeologists estimate that modern humans have been on the Earth for about 200,000 years. The Universe existed before the evolution/creation of human beings.

We are part of the Earth. The Earth is part of the Universe. Therefore, we are part of the Universe. Our physical body is made up of the same stuff of the Universe (stardust/atoms). In the same way, our awareness/consciousness (Atman/Tao) is part of the same infinite universal awareness/consciousness (Brahman/Eternal Tao). Matter (physical Universe) and Universal Consciousness (Brahman) are but the two poles of the same thing, or not-THING, differing only in degree of density.

We are part of an infinite, unknowable living Universe. The Universe is the physical form/body of Brahman/Eternal Tao. We are human beings. Brahman is an infinite, eternal, all-encompassing, unknowable, living, impersonal universal BEING. We are part of Brahman like one of your cell is part of your physical body (an adult human body contains approximately 37 trillion cells). All human beings are a living microcosm of the macrocosm.

“Physics is having a nervous breakdown. Nature is smarter than we are.” – Michio Kaku

No one can comprehend that which is infinite and eternal. Brahman is UNKNOWABLE/ incomprehensible. Only Brahman can comprehend its own nature and being. All the theories and speculations of human beings regarding the essential nature of Brahman are but the childish efforts of mortal minds to grasp the secret of the infinite, the eternal, the boundless, the uncreated, the indefinable, and the incomprehensible. Such efforts have always failed and will always fail.

“I am all that was, that is, and that shall be and no mortal has ever lifted my veil.” – Temple of Isis at Sais, Ancient Egypt

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.” – Albert Einstein

Brahman/Eternal Tao is the ultimate mystery. Those who are Enlightened/Self-realised live in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility, and reverence. Enlightened/Self-realised human beings do not know the essential nature of Brahman; only fools can claim to know everything.

“The mystery of creation is sought to be discovered by man but it is something unique and undecipherable. Man’s talents can never fathom it. The how and why of God’s sport is known only to God. Man’s task is to enjoy it and benefit by it.” – Sai Baba

“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.” – Albert Einstein

Known is infinitesimal; Unknown is infinite. Know your Atman-self and remain in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility and reverence.

Humility/ CHAPTER 59

“Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.” – Confucius

“My religiosity consists in a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality.” – Albert Einstein

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” – Isaac Newton

Knowledge of truth is the highest and the most sacred possession. But in order to learn, you must be humble. Humility is the first prerequisite to learning.

Modern society needs a big lesson in humility. Those who think themselves superior to others shall be disappointed and humbled. False pride is the worst of sins. Human beings are only the explorers of the vast territory of life, and not its owner, or the original creator. Human beings (Enlightened or not) did not create this 4.5-billion-year-old planet Earth or the infinite physical Universe. We are part of the eternal miracle/creation of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

Humility is not cowardice. Humility is not weakness. Humility is not bowing to stupid religious/spiritual teachers. Humility is not hugging every spiritual Tom, Dick, and Harry. Being humble doesn’t mean being stupid. Don’t confuse humility with shyness, insecurity, or self-deprecation. Have some self-respect. Be confident but humble.

“If I tell you I’m good, probably you will say I’m boasting. But if I tell you I’m not good, you’ll know I’m lying. I have no fear of an opponent in front of me.” – Bruce Lee

Life is a pilgrimage to Enlightenment/Self-realisation. Life is a pilgrimage to Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/ Brahman/Eternal Tao. It is a long lesson in humility. Humility is the sign of the great souls. The more spiritual progress you make, the more humble you become. The greatest Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts are the most humble human beings.

Brahman is mysterious. Mystery fills us with awe and wonder. They are the foundations of humility.

Who is more humble? The few who look at the infinite and unknowable physical Universe, and the infinite, eternal, boundless, uncreated, indefinable, and incomprehensible Brahman with feeling of awe and wonder, humility and reverence? Or those with swollen heads who claim that the physical Universe is inside their skull, just some appearance, illusion, and they are literally Self (God)?

True humility is a function of self-knowledge and an accurate self-validation and self-valuation. Humility is not actually a “thing” one strives to attain; it is instead a state that one becomes as a consequence of accurate self-knowing.

Brahman is within the bacteria, and yet the bacteria are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the trees, and yet the trees are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the monkeys, and yet the monkeys are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the human beings, and yet the human beings are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the Avatars (Self-realised/Enlightened human beings), and the Avatars are close to being Brahman-Self. They are not literally Brahman in human form. There are non-physical realms incomprehensible even to the greatest Avatars. Only Brahman is capable of comprehending these realms.

“In the face of creation, I feel very humble. It is as if a spirit is manifest infinitely superior to man’s spirit. Through my pursuit in science I have known cosmic religious feelings.” – Albert Einstein

“Everyone who is seriously engaged in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that the laws of nature manifest the existence of a spirit vastly superior to that of men, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble. The pursuit of science leads therefore to a religious feeling of a special kind, which differs essentially from the religiosity of more naive people.” – Albert Einstein

Most people are not humble enough for true spirituality. They falsely believe their own conditionings and think they already know the ultimate truth. They want to remain as they are. Some try to reduce spirituality to the level of science. This is not possible; it is beyond science.

No matter who you are, your social status, how rich you become, how big your house is, how famous you are, or how powerful you are, don’t be arrogant. It can all be gone tomorrow. And when you die, the size of your graves will always be the same size. Stay humble.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: Then why do some Avatars claim to be God?
HB: Because they are at-one-with Brahman. But you are a literalist. What you call Self-realisation is nothing but logical fallacies. You are still your personal self, falsely claiming to be the Brahman-Self.

PA: I was taught that I existed before the universe and the universe is just some appearances in my awareness.
HB: In the temporal sequential realm, the Universe was formed before the evolution of human beings as revealed by science. In the eternal realm, there is no sequence so you cannot talk about before or after. The universe and everything exist simultaneously. Even this planet and everything in this universe has an eternal Atman in the eternal realm. The universe is not some appearance in your awareness. You may have a cataract. Check it with your doctor.

PA: I am beyond the Universe, beyond consciousness/awareness, beyond God, beyond being, beyond non-being, beyond experience, beyond universal, beyond reality, beyond observer, beyond void.
HB: Go beyond this madness. This is narcissism. What stopped you from going beyond that beyond? Why don’t you go beyond that beyond, too? Universal Consciousness is an infinite continuum. There is no beyond infinity. Humble yourself or life will do it for you.

Wonder/ CHAPTER 60

“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.” – Albert Einstein

“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.” – Socrates

“Wonder is the feeling of the philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.” – Plato

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein

“Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in a library. Questioners sooner or later end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers. And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder.” – Osho

“I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.” – Gerry Spence

Most people are dreaming away their precious lives in consumerism, or religious/spiritual fantasy. Life is but a momentary glimpse of awe and wonder, humility, and reverence.

Human life is an impossibility in an incomprehensible, unknowable, infinite Universe. Most religious/spiritual people go on reading, discussing, and just accumulating information. Most of them are just human encyclopaedias of accumulated information. Don’t be a human encyclopaedia. Live in wonder. Enlightenment/Self-realisation doesn’t lead to all the answers, only to a state of constant awe and wonder, humility, and reverence.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead—his eyes are closed. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms—this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men.” – Albert Einstein

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.” – Neil Armstrong

The mark of wisdom is to perceive the infinite physical Universe as the eternal miracle of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness and live in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility, and reverence.

The more you perceive the planet Earth, Sun, stars, galaxies, and the rest of the Universe with awe and wonder, the less ignorance you shall have for destruction.

“One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity of life and of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” – Albert Einstein

“The feeling of awed wonder that science can give us is one of the highest experiences of which the human psyche is capable. It is a deep aesthetic passion to rank with the finest that music and poetry can deliver. It is truly one of the things that make life worth living and it does so, if anything, more effectively if it convinces us that the time we have for living is quite finite.” – Richard Dawkins

“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full or wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later year…the alienation from the sources of our strength.” – Rachel Carson

“The art of meditation is how to make your questions disappear, not to give you an answer. The answer will bring new questions and there is no end to it. Meditation will leave you in a space where there is no question, no answer, but only a purity, a simplicity—the same that you had known when you were born. You were alive but there was no question. You were so full of wonder. Your eyes sparkled seeing a small thing.” – Osho

Not so long ago, humanity lived in harmony with nature without this modern extreme consumerism. Modern society is going astray from nature. It is time to return to our natural roots and live in harmony with nature.

“I’m no longer a child and I still want to be. Because I want to live forever in wonder.” – Kathy Acker

Follow your own intuition aiming to reach bliss, Universal Consciousness, and Being.

Brahman/Eternal Tao is the ultimate mystery. Mystery fills us with awe and wonder. They are the foundations of humility. Wonder is the chief characteristic of the initiate/aspirant’s attitude toward life, Universe, and Brahman. To wonder is to be a little child again and it is blissful. Become like little children again, and perceive everything in this Universe as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. The mind is empty at moments of wonder. Life is a mystery. Live it with wonder and amazement.

“The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.” – Albert Einstein

Unless you transform and become pure like little children, you will never enter the eternal realm.

Not special/ CHAPTER 61

Human beings are not special. We are only unique, just like every other thing that exists.

Life exists in EVERY thing—every cell, every atom, every photon, rock, asteroid, galaxy…Because everything is condensed Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Everything surrounding us, everything in nature is alive, but in a non-human way.

Human beings are not any more significant or important that any other physical being. All we are is different. But each being is different, and has its own unique set of attributes.

Scientists might find the following interesting:


http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S26/40/89S11/?section=featured
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictyostelium_discoideum

If you want to understand something more about consciousness, contemplate this. Every amoeboid cell as unicellular amoebae has its own Atman (individual consciousness), but as a single multicellular slug, it has a single Atman. Brahman is also within Dictyostelium discoideum.

Dictyostelium discoideum is a species of individual amoeboid cells. They can spend most of their lives as individual amoeboid cells, capable of sexual reproduction if certain conditions are met. But when the supply of food is depleted, they turn into a multicellular slug (composed of up to 100,000 cells) and then into a fruiting body within its lifetime.

“…Their life cycle intrigues researchers for the questions it raises about altruism, the presumptive stalk cells sacrifice themselves for the reproductive benefit of their clonal brethren, the presumptive spore cells.

How is it that some cells are willing to be part of the stalk and die, so that some others may live on as spores?

Between their seeming altruism and their other complex behavior, the slime molds raise compelling questions for scientists to ponder.” – Bonner

Non-duality/ CHAPTER 62

“There are no longer two. But remember: the moment Buddha says there are no longer two, he is not saying there is one. He keeps utter silence about the one. He says to say only there are not two. Not two—that’s all.

It is all oneness, but Buddha never calls it one. He is very careful. He avoids all kinds of logical pitfalls. He is very, very alert not to fall into any logical fallacy. He will not say existence is one…” – Osho

The Vedas declare, “Ekoham bahusyam”—I am One; I shall become many: “Being” willed to “become.”

Non-duality simply means an Infinite Continuum. Infinity by definition is all-encompassing and multidimensional (astral, mental, eternal or akashic, non-dual). It includes all THINGS and all not-THINGS. EveryTHING and not-THING is connected. There is no separation between matter and spirit (Universal Consciousness). Matter is not an illusion. Waves are a temporary manifestation of the ocean. The temporal/physical realm is part of the eternal realm like the waves are a temporal aspect of the ocean. There is no beyond. All (matter and Spirit) is Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. And therefore there is only Brahman.

Non-duality also refers to non-sequential realm. Non-sequential and sequential realms exist simultaneously. Space-time is multidimensional, meaning it is non-sequential/non-dual and sequential simultaneously. Spaceless and timeless means non-sequential/non-dual realm, not literally outside of space-time. Space-time is infinite and eternal and therefore there is no outside. In spirituality, we use our astral and mental/spirit bodies to explore these nonphysical astral, mental and non-sequential realms. This is completely different to what the scientists are talking about with their laboratory experiments with particles.

The One Self/Brahman encompasses the whole of Being and is manifest in all things, from the most dense matter to the most ephemeral consciousness. The One Self/Brahman encompasses both the physical and the non-physical realms simultaneously.

The eternal non-physical realm and temporal physical realm exist simultaneously without separation. It is unity in diversity. It is invisible/unmanifest and visible/manifest simultaneously. Learn to hold these opposite perspectives simultaneously.

To separate matter (the physical Universe) and spirit (consciousness/awareness) into two camps as the Self and non-Self, Real and illusion, is another form of duality. This dualistic thinking is the downfall of many, many, many would-be Buddhas/Siddhas/Avatars/Adepts. It basically stems from a Western dualistic thinking which separates all things into two camps.

In science, the initial singularity is thought to have contained all of the mass and sequential space-time of the Universe before, creating the present-day Universe. When you say it is one, it is like saying that the Universe is still in the stage of singularity. We are not still in the stage of undifferentiated Universal Consciousness.

A fertilized egg (zygote) is a single cell that gives rise to all the trillions of cells in the individual organism. The undifferentiated zygote became all the trillions of cells in your body. Therefore, you are a zygote and a trillion-cell organism simultaneously. In the same way, it is ONE undifferentiated Absolute/Universal Consciousness, an infinite number of different types of individual awareness/consciousness, the infinite physical Universe and an infinite cycle of deaths and rebirths of the Universe simultaneously. It is ONE in this sense.

The whole pseudo/neo-Advaita (Shankara’s school of Advaita) is based on the false assumption that we are still in the stage of undifferentiated Universal Consciousness. It is like saying that you are still a zygote cell. How can the zygote cell speak? Brahman/Self/Eternal Tao includes EVERY thing—who, what, when, where, and why—simultaneously. This is the multi-dimensionally infinite Unity of BEing. It is ONE in this sense. It is not a finite one. It is not like saying there is only one car, my car, and all the other cars are illusion.

If you are the ocean, you are the waves, too, even if it is temporary (a trillion solar years or longer).

“You must learn to discriminate between Maya and Mithya and this will help you to perceive God in everything. In this way you will develop a feeling of closeness to Nature and to God and awareness of oneness.” – Sai Baba

“We have to start this eternal journey from the point of dualism. You have to proceed from dualism to non-dualism. We should have this fundamental faith that everyone is the form of God. There are many critics of the spiritual path. It is easy to criticize, to know is difficult.” – Sai Baba

“I have no body, nor am I without bodies” – Dattatreya’s Song of the Avadhut (4.12)

What is invisible/unmanifest is like what is visible/manifest (and more), and what is visible/ manifest, like that which is invisible/unmanifest; to make the miracle of the One Self.

As is the microcosm (human body), so is the macrocosm (Universe). As is the tree, so is its seed. As is the macrocosm, so is the formless Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Brahman/Eternal Tao. The whole macrocosm is contained in the formless seed of the Universal Consciousness/ Nothingness/Brahman/Eternal Tao, which manifests as the macrocosm.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins (Advaitins of Shankara’s school) are incapable of recognizing their own logical fallacies. It is easier for a titanosaur Argentinosaurus huinculensis (largest dinosaur known) to go through the eye of the needle than for a pseudo/neo-Advaitin or pseudo quantum physicist to understand the nature of consciousness. What they call consciousness or non-duality is singularity.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
HB: What is 3 + 2?
PA: One.
HB: How many people are there in the world?
PA: One.
HB: What did you get in your maths test?
PA: One.
HB: No, I think you got zero.

HB: What colour is my hair?
PA: Self does not see or hear. Seeing is duality.
HB: Since when? Then how did you hear my question? You mean Self (God) is blind.

PA: Do you believe in the ONE god, our American/NATO/Christian/Muslim god?
HB: “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”– James 2:18-20. Do you have a moon in your country (American/NATO/Christian/Muslim moon)?
PA: There is only one moon for planet Earth.
HB: Oh really? There is only One Brahman for the infinite physical Universe. And it is not American/NATO/Christian/Muslim.

(2 months later)
PA: I am a new convert to neo-Advaita. Self alone is. Just One Self. World is an illusion.
HB: Is that Self still American/NATO/Christian/Muslim?

PA: From the perspective of God or the Absolute, you do not exist. I do not exist. Nothing has ever happened. The universe doesn’t exist, only the Absolute / God exists. What is real remains unchanged and unchanging.
HB: You are still trapped in the realm of mind. You don’t perceive the multi-dimensional nature of reality/consciousness/self/God. This form of duality is a delusion. This is not the perspective of God or the Absolute. This is the perspective of singularity or the undifferentiated Universal Consciousness/Brahman, which is just a part of the perspective of God, not the whole perspective.

“Everything that is, was, and will be, eternally IS, even the countless forms, which are finite and perishable only in their objective, not in their ideal Form.” – Helena Blavatsky

PA: Only God is real, the unchanging ground of everything. The world of appearances, is not real and is illusory. What is real remains unchanged and unchanging. The rest are all just imagination, images, illusions, a dream.

HB: You are projecting your dreams, delusions and hallucinations onto God. God does not create the universe with hallucinations. Avatars do not materialize talismans while hallucinating. This is why miraculous abilities are important in spirituality. Only when you reach the level of performing miracles, you will understand the nature of creation and some aspect of Brahman. If singularity is the only reality, how can you talk about appearances? Appearances imply it is not in singularity. Appearances imply it is no longer a singularity. The physical Universe is the form/body of Brahman

Religious/spiritual fanatics cannot handle more than a finite one. It freaks them out. They can only accept one finite god, one Son of God, one Messiah, one Prophet, one book, one Swami, etc.

Not illusion/ CHAPTER 63

“You can live as if everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

“Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.” – Buddha

The vedas declare: “Ekoham bahusyam”—I am One; I shall become many: “Being” willed to “become.”

Everything is a miracle of Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. The visible physical Universe is a manifestation of Brahman itself and therefore real. The physical Universe is the body/form of Brahman. Everything in this Universe is real and alive. Space-time is very real, not an illusion. How we perceive it could be called a delusion. Space-time is multidimensional, meaning it is non-sequential and sequential simultaneously. Space-time is infinite and eternal, not an illusion.

“Any faith that admires truth, that strives to know God, must be brave enough to accommodate the Universe.” – Carl Sagan

All (spirit and matter) is Brahman, even if it is temporal. What we call temporal is the period between the incarnations but the incarnation cycle itself is infinite with no beginning and end. We are in the midst of an infinite cycle of deaths and rebirths of the Universe (Big Bangs and Big Crunches). There is no separation between Brahman/the Universal Consciousness and the infinite physical Universe. Non-duality simply means an Infinite Continuum.

“After many births the enlightened one resorts to Me by realizing that everything is, indeed, My (or Supreme Being’s) manifestation. Such a great soul is very rare.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.19)

“I am also both the eternal Absolute and the temporal.  The Supreme Being has become everything” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 9.19)

“The material Nature or matter is My lower Nature. My other higher Nature is the Spirit by which this entire Universe is sustained.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.05)

“The wise one should give up all differentiation of Self and non-Self, and abide as pure Self only.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.35, v.23

“All ignorance and illusion, all objects inert and living, all beings and non-beings, all the five elements, all the diverse worlds, all bodies and the lives that arise in them, not being apart from Brahman-Self, are Brahman-Self only. Existence alone is, for even non-existence acquires meaning only in Existence. Simply put, everything exists always as Brahman-Self only.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.12, v.2

“Since I as pure Self exist alone and always, there is no room for thought of non-Self-world. I-Self-Brahman is the sole Existence.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.35, v.24

“The Universe is the Body of God.” – Sai baba

If the Universe is Brahman, then you can NEVER say it is an illusion. You cannot say a room is dark and light at the same time; it is either dark or light. If you say Brahman is real but Brahman’s creation/evolution (the entire physical Universe) is an illusion, then it implies duality (matter is separate from spirit) and Brahman is finite. And it also implies all (spirit and matter) is NOT Brahman. You cannot say Brahman/Self alone is real, as it implies duality. Brahman is all-encompassing (all THINGS and all not-THINGS).

A water molecule in the ocean cannot claim the ocean is an illusion. It implies the water molecule itself is an illusion. A cell within your body cannot claim your body is an illusion. An embryo inside the mother’s womb cannot claim the mother is an illusion. How can the microcosm claim the macrocosm is an illusion? When some people speak of the Universe as an illusion, they are speaking from within the framework of illusion. How can one speak about illusion while being in illusion? This is the sign of madness. They are lost. Some ancient sages warned the public of the dangers of esoteric doctrines and forbade the public teaching of these esoteric doctrines.

“They (persons of demonic nature) say: The world is unreal, without a substratum, without a God, and without an order.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.08)

“The cosmos is a projection of the eternal infinite reality (Brahman), and is not separate from Brahman. The Universe is permeated by the divine. When this truth is recognized it will be obvious that all that one perceives or experiences is a manifestation of the divine.” – Sai Baba

“Creation means the expression of the will of God. It is called nature….In spite of doing spiritual practices for many years or for many life times, if people still think of creation and the Creator as two separate entities, they cannot realize their true nature. People should use their intelligence to realize their true nature.” – Sai Baba

“Just as the space inside the jar is the same as the infinite space outside it so the Universe exists in and through the one, infinite Self. The Universe has no separate existence of its own.” – Sri Ashtavakara

You and every physical form in the Universe (trees, planets, stars, galaxies, and beyond) came out of the eternal realm like a wave from the ocean.

Brahman is the formless seed. The Universe is the Tree. Brahman is the formless seed of this manifested Universe.

Find out what isn’t Brahman, and I will tell you what is Brahman.

If you are the ocean, you are the waves, too, even if it is temporal (a trillion solar years or longer).

“One can’t even speak of something separate from the Self; One cannot speak of what doesn’t exist….there’s no maya to me.” – Dattatreya’s Song of the Avadhut (4.13)

“The sadhaka practising meditation on the Self, should always think firmly that all diversities of soul, world and creator are the undifferentiated Brahman-Self only.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.21, v.39

There is no such thing as illusion, from the ultimate standpoint. All that emanates from Brahman can only be Brahman. If there is not even a subatomic particle apart from the Universal Self that is, what or where is the illusion, and to whom is the illusion?

Your physical body and the physical Universe are an expression of Brahman. Creation/Evolution is only a condensation/ projection of Brahman. And therefore all is Brahman.

There is nothing apart from Brahman, so what exactly is illusion? If all is Brahman, what is not included in that all? Is there a place where Brahman is not? How can the Universe be something separate from Brahman? To whom is the illusion? People see the world through their own coloured glasses. What most people see is only a projection of their own mind/untransformed psyche. Know yourself first.

Extreme consumerism is maya. The Universe is real. Don’t confuse negative character traits and consumerism with the Universe.

“Among the founders of all religions in this world, I respect only one man—the Buddha. The main reason was that the Buddha did not make statements regarding the origin of the world. The Buddha was the only teacher who realised the true nature of the world.” – Bertrand Russell

If one were to take the pseudo/Neo-Advaita seriously, one would go mad. But to take the pseudo/Neo-Advaita seriously, one must be already mad. It is this pseudo/Neo-Advaita that Buddha rejected 2,500 years ago.

“The fool, who recognizes his own foolishness, thereby becomes wise. But the simpleton, who deceives himself to be clever, is verily a fool. The worst enemy of the fool is thus himself!” –Buddha

It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.” – Voltaire

Those who teach that the Universe is not real, just an imagination, just some image, or thought in your awareness are still lost in their mind. They have fallen below the ordinary humanity. They are far below the ordinary humanity as far as intelligence and awareness are concerned.

The danger of religion/spirituality in modern society is that it allows otherwise normal, intelligent people to reap the fruits of madness and consider themselves spiritual/holy/Self-realised/THE SELF.

None are more hopelessly lost than those who falsely believe they are Enlightened/Self-realised/THE SELF.

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” – Albert Einstein

Kept alive the sacred flame/ CHAPTER 64

“There was a time when man took no more than he needed—that time is gone. There was a time when he gave something back—that time is gone. There was a time when he worshiped the Creator and honored creation—that time too is gone. And now the waters are polluted. Our natural resources are all but gone. And creation is dying. It is time to find our way back to the Earth.” – Kevin Thunderhorse Wright (Native American)

There have always been a few Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts in every generation, in every continent, who kept alive the sacred flame of ancient teachings. They have neither sought approval from the masses nor to convert others. They are indifferent to these things, for they know most people are not ready for the truth, or that they would not recognize it if it were presented to them. Most people are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect the system and their false ego. They will drag the ancient sacred wisdom into the mud; they will misunderstand it and dishonour it! But let not the flame die out!

“There is a story in the Buddhist Jataka Tales that when Buddha was enlightened he remained silent for seven days. Buddha thought, “Those who will understand me, will understand me without my speaking anyway, and those who will not understand will not understand, no matter how much I explain.” – Osho

Honour the way of our ancient Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts, for it is in their footsteps that you will find yourself. The common aim of all the Avatars of all lands is to lead mankind towards Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self and prevent mankind from sliding down into the level of the beast and become extinct.

“I have come to light the lamp of Love in your hearts, to see that it shines day by day with added luster. I have not come on behalf of any exclusive religion. I have not come on any mission of publicity for any sect or creed or cause; nor have I come to collect followers for any doctrine. I have no plan to attract disciples or devotees into my fold or any fold. I have come to tell you of this unitary faith, this spiritual principle, this path of Love, this virtue of Love, this duty of Love, this obligation to Love.” – Sai Baba

Most people have never heard of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Some hear of it, but fail to comprehend it. Wonderful is the Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept who speaks of it. Fortunate is the one who understands it. But blessed is the one who, having heard of it from a true Avatar, is able to reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self here in this very life.

“I am He who cannot be known…I am the unveiled one…I am not known by you, but I am he who knows you.” – Ancient Egypt

Potentially Krishna/Buddha/Jesus/ CHAPTER 65

“There have been many Buddhas before me and will be many Buddhas in the future. All living beings have the Buddha nature and can become Buddhas.” – Buddha

“There have been many incarnations of myself and yourself; I know them all, but you do not” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 4.05)

In alchemy, we say gold is the perfect metal of all metals. But all the metals are potentially gold. All the metals contain the seed of gold and are becoming gold.

Every Enlightened/Self-realised master (Avatar/Siddha/Adept/Buddha) has a past, and everyone (including demons/ evildoers) has a future as an Enlightened/Self-realised master. It is destined but not in this lifetime—only a handful will reach Enlightenment in this lifetime.

You are potentially Krishna/Hermes Trismegistus/Buddha/Jesus, or any other Enlightened/Self-realised master. You have the potential to become an Avatar in this lifetime. It is very simple but not easy. True Avatars are very very rare, one in a billion.

But use the affirmation “I am Buddha, I am That/Eternal Tao/Brahman/Self” and become that. Only then will you become an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept.

Don’t waste your time being a devotee/follower/disciple. An Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept is an inspiration to all, demonstrating what all human beings may become and BE. There is no point in blindly following them and becoming fanatical. Don’t just follow them, strive to become them. Enlightenment/Self-realisation is what will set you free from the animal realm we all evolved from and are still evolving. Connect with the consciousness of your chosen Avatar and embody his/her essence. Become a master. Become and be like Krishna, Hermes Trismegistus, Buddha, Jesus, or any other Enlightened/Self-realised being. Avatarhood is our essential nature. Don’t worship any Avatars. Become an Avatar by being your core self. Only then have you lived, only then have you known yourself and known what it means to be a human being.

“The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself.” – Richard Francis Burton

“And behold! God will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God’?” He will say: “Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.” – Quran (5:116)

“I said not to them except what You commanded me – to worship God , my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness .” – Quran (5:117)

Each and every one of you will reach ultimate self-realisation in time. Each and every one of you will become an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept in time. It is destined.

Miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) are natural for Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts. Laws of nature are not fixed and dead. They are alive. True Avatars can command them at will but do not violate the universal lawfulness.

“You are not Bhaktaas (devotees); you are more than that, you ought to become Bhagavaan; each one of you can become Bhagavaan by merging your separate individual jeevas (Atman), in the Ocean of the Universal Atman.” – Sai Baba

“Yes. You too can become Divine; I have nothing that you too do not possess. It is latent in you, it is patent and potent here; that is the only difference.” – Sai Baba

“I am God. And You too are God. The only difference between you and me is that while I am aware of it, you are completely unaware.” – Sai Baba

“I am you and you are all I.” – Sai Baba

“…where I am, there you may be also.” – John 14:3

“Is it not written in your Law, I have said you are gods?” – John 10:34

There have been many Avatars/Sons of God/Messiahs/Prophets before your Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet and there will be many Avatars in the future. All human beings have the “Avatar” nature and can and will eventually become the “Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet.” It is destined.

There will be many Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts in the future, but the message will be one and the same. They will express the same essential teachings in their own unique way.

When you see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, you can call that bird a duck. When you see that your Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet is born like a human, walks like a human, talks like a human, eats like a human, and preaches like a human, it is because he/she is a human being.

An Avatar is not literally the incarnation of God in human form. God/Brahman does not literally take on a human form and appear as a human being. God did not literally send his only son or the prophets. All these terms are just different ways of expressing the state of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. There were/are genuine Avatars who claim to be “God”, but they don’t mean it literally. Even the greatest Avatars, must bow to the Universal Law, and be as insignificant in the “eye of Brahman.” There is a difference between an Avatar and the infinite, unknowable Being—Brahman. Avatars are Avatars. Brahman is Brahman. Don’t confuse the two. An Avatar only means a fully Self-realised/Enlightened human being with miraculous abilities. That’s all.

There are billions of people who can tell you what is pleasing to your mind/conditioned mind-self/false ego (feed your false ego), but it is one in a billion who can tell you what is good for you, the true you.

Q&A
Q: What is the difference between Enlightenment and Self-realisation, or Union with the Universal Self?
A: There is no difference. It is the same. Just like there is no difference between an astronaut and a cosmonaut.

Q: What is the difference between a Buddha and an Avatar?
A: Different terminologies with the same meaning. Age is irrelevant here. Jesus was a Buddha. And Buddha was a son of God. Words are only symbols for what we mean. It is the meaning that matters.
Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA) vs. Human being (HB)
PA: The Self is already realised.
HB: Self is just another concept for Brahman-Self/God/Elohim. You are not literally Brahman-Self. And why is it that you didn’t know that before you were conditioned by pseudo/neo-Advaita? So what is this ignorant self?

PA1: I want the shortest path to Self-realisation.
PA2: You have come to the right place, because self is already realised.
PA1: Really? You mean even before I came here?
PA2: Yes.
PA1: Then why didn’t I know about it?
PA2: Because you need a guru.
PA1: Why do I need a guru if I am already realised?

HB: When the fools are ready, pseudo/Neo-Advaitin gurus will appear and guide them into their pit.
HB: As Voltaire said, “It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.”

Sai Fanatic (SF) vs. Human being (HB)
SF: There are too many imitation of the advent of Sathya Sai Baba. Isn’t it better to simply focus on Swami?
HB: Then we don’t need any more doctors. Do you pray to dead doctors? You need living Avatars. The eternal Atman (Paramatman) of every being or every form including Sathya Sai baba’s, will continue to project/create Individual Selves (Atman) into this temporal realm of space-time. Most of these individuals who imitate Sathya Sai Baba have the same Eternal Atman (Paramatman).

Try to imitate Bill Gates and see if you can become a billionaire. Try to imitate Bruce Lee and see if you can become one of the best martial artists of all time. If one can perform the same miracles (Maha siddhis) of Sathya Sai Baba then he/she is equal to Sathya Sai Baba.

“Only those who are ignorant of the Glory of God will insist on one Name and one Form for his adoration and what is worse, condemn the use by others of other names and forms! Since you are all associated with Sathya Sai Baba Organisations, I must warn you against such silly obduracy. Do not go about proclaiming that you are a sect distinct and separate from those who adore God in other forms and names. Thereby you are limiting the very God whom you are extolling. Do not proclaim in your enthusiasm, “We want only Sai; we are not concerned with the rest.” You must convince yourselves that all forms are Sai’s; all names are Sai’s. There is no ‘rest’; all are He.” – Sai Baba

“You should become an instrument of Swami. You should become the beloved of Swami. You should check every step with a step of Swami. You should become companions of the Swami, like His shadow. I need such people. They are the epitome of My Love. “They are me”. “I – they”. You should be so you can transform the world in its physical, mental and spiritual aspects. You should behave in accord with the ideas and plans Swami.” – Sai Baba

“Shiva-Shakthi is in all, not only in Me; there is only the difference in power and capacity to manifest.” – Sai Baba

“You too have the Sai principle in you, but the difference is a matter of voltage.” – Sai Baba

“I am Sath-Chith-Aanandha Aathman! And, you too are Sath, Chith and Aanandha Aathman. Only, you are not aware of it, you have not discovered it and revealed it.” – Sai Baba

“You too can become Divine; I have nothing that you too do not possess. It is latent in you, it is patent and potent here; that is the only difference!” – Sai Baba

“Do not proclaim that this Name of God is superior or more efficacious than the other. To assert that Raama is superior or that Shiva is superior, or even that Sai Baaba is the Avathaar that is the fullest of all—all this only reveals that you have not understood what Divinity is.” – Sai Baba

“God existed before Sathya Sai Baba came. God came in the form of Sathya Sai Baba. He will come in many other forms, including your own Divine self.” – Sai Baba

“Be convinced that God can and will appear in any form and so all forms are His. Don’t refuse to recognise Divinity in the form you dislike or did not expect!” – Sai Baba

Elements/ CHAPTER 66

“Everything in the world is made up of some combination of four elements: earth, fire, water, and air.” – Aristotle (384-322 B.C.)

Elements (classical elements, not the elements of the periodic table) are not physical. The Elements are the qualities of Universal Consciousness. Every physical thing is composed of four Elements acting in unison and in varying ratios. Physical fire is a combination of all four Elements with a preponderance of Fire. Physical water expresses the characteristics of the Water Element but is itself composed of all four Elements working in unison, and so on.

Akasha is not physical. It is the source of the four elements, and it is also the source from which the entire physical Universe manifests. The Elements emerge from the Akasha/Quintessence.

A purely intellectual understanding of the Elements is useless in spirituality. You must develop an understanding of them through your own direct experience of them. True advanced meditation expands your individual consciousness and reveals an understanding of the Elements unattainable by just thinking.

“Logic will get you from A to B.” – Albert Einstein

Science seeks to understand the properties of the physical materia that naturally adheres to the non-physical Elements, whereas spirituality seeks to understand the Elements themselves. Science studies the results of the Elements. Spirituality, on the other hand, studies the action of the Elements AND the results of them. One cannot separate the effects of the Elements from the eternal principles themselves. The effects AND their causes = Existence. True Universal spirituality is more than science.

The guardians of the four quarters are the archangels Uriel, Raphael, Michael, and Gabriel. The names and forms (anthropotheism) are symbolic and vary from culture to culture, but the essence remains the same. Sylphs, gnomes, undines, and salamanders are the spirits of nature, or the beings of the Elements pertaining to the ancient separation of nature into its four components—earth, water, air, and fire. The spirits of nature or the beings of the Elements are, in and of themselves, entities independent from the human psyche.

If you see with the “eyes” of Infinity/the Source/Brahman-Self/Eternal Tao, the four elements of nature obey your will. This is the secret of performing miracles.

Becoming/ CHAPTER 67

“Nothing is permanent. Everything is subject to change. Being is always Becoming.” – Buddha

“There is no ‘being,’ only becoming.” – Buddha

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” – Heraclitus

Here, within our temporal realm, being is a ‘becoming’ process. There is no such thing as a static state of ‘being’ in spirituality, only a temporal state of Being. Anything you do in life or spirituality is a becoming process.

“The knower of Brahman BECOMES Brahman.” – Mundaka Upanishad, 3.2.9

“All living beings have the Buddha nature and can BECOME Buddhas.” – Buddha

“Everything is the Supreme Being, which is Existence-Consciousness-Bliss, and I am That, by constantly cultivating this pure thought, get rid of impure thoughts. Then, my son, discarding even that thought and always inhering in the State of Fullness, you will BECOME the non-dual and undifferentiated Supreme Being and attain liberation.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.26, v.40

The seed becomes the tree. The embryo becomes a foetus and then a baby. Everything in this temporal realm is a becoming process. Evolution is a becoming process.

A caterpillar becomes a butterfly through physical transformation in nature. Spirituality is self-transformation, transformation/evolution of human consciousness. The Atman/Tao (individual awareness) becomes the Eternal Atman and then Brahman/Eternal Tao (Universal Consciousness). A caterpillar is not a butterfly while it is still a caterpillar. Lead is not gold. In the same way, Atman cannot claim to be Brahman before it becomes at-one-with Brahman.

If you start with the false assumption that you are already THAT (Self is already realised) in this temporal realm, then you will end up with a false conclusion, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between. This is the whole problem with pseudo/Neo-Advaita. Decondition yourself first.

There is nothing in our temporal realm that is truly static (permanent) or truly unchanging. Then how can you say you are already THAT? The true spiritual goal is Equilibrium. It is not a static result. Perfect state of Being the Brahman-Self is not a reachable goal while incarnate in this temporal physical realm. Absolute perfection is not a thing that can occur in the temporal realm. But a true Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept can be in the state when the arising of imbalance and its equilibration occur simultaneously.

The nature of the physical Universe is such that no single one of us achieves true, absolute spiritual perfection while incarnate. Spiritual perfection (absolute Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self) exists ONLY when you finally enter the eternal realm at the end of your incarnation cycle. But here, within our temporal realm, all we can do is approach perfection. It is a process.

The state of consciousness at the last moment of life is considered so crucial that true Enlightened/Self-realised beings (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts) spend their whole life preparing for it.

You are becoming what you think, feel, and do all day long.

You become so that you can BE. Being doesn’t mean being your personal self. In spirituality, Being means being the One Self or Brahman-Self.

People are not interested in self-transformation. They want to be their conditioned mind-self, and that’s the problem. The whole world is fast asleep and people are enjoying their dreams. If you teach people—“Be as you are,” “You are already That”, etc.—you are only strengthening their false ego. There is a difference between being your true self and being your conditioned mind-self.

Spiritual training requires that we unlearn many of the things taught us by our culture/society. Much of the work of self-transformation is about consciously reprogramming your own subconscious mind (psyche). You might call it unbecoming. But it is just a small part of the process on the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

The real problem in spirituality is that people don’t understand the meaning of these concepts. Profound wisdom cannot be expressed by concepts, for only mere hints are possible. Birds, animals, trees…are not trying to become something in society but they are evolving. In spirituality “becoming” means expansion of consciousness. NOT like becoming successful in your career, becoming someone in your mundane life, etc. It has nothing to do with desiring with the mind. It is not seeking with the mind. But you must be curious like children. It is an inner hunger, a hunger of the soul/Atman/Tao to reunite with Brahman/Eternal Tao/the source.

In spirituality, if you don’t understand the meaning of the term “becoming,” then you will not understand the meaning of “Drop the idea of becoming someone,” etc.

Those who have attained a high spiritual level and have misused it have a terrible fate in store for them, like the worst hangover that lasts for centuries. Spirituality is like climbing Mount Everest. If you misuse it, you lose spiritual balance and fall back as far as the base, from which point you must retrace your steps Spiritward.

All your Avatars/Son of God/Messiahs/Prophets became; they were not sent by God.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaita (PA) vs. Ancient Advaita (AA)
PA: You remain what you always are.
AA: If you define yourself as God (Brahman-Self), then you remain what you always are. If you are Atman (Individual self/Individual awareness), you are here on this realm of space-time to learn and grow, and ultimately merge with Brahman-Self. You are not Brahman-Self. You are an Atman with a root in the eternal Brahman.

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.” – Aboriginal proverb

PA: You cannot become what you already are.
AA: So how did you become this babbling Trump/Pseudo-Advaitin? You can say your temporal Atman-self is becoming the eternal Atman-self. But you are not literally the eternal Atman-self in this temporal realm.

PA: What you are you cannot become. You can only be That.
AA: But it took you three years to realise your true nature. Therefore you were NOT That.

PA: Drop the belief that you need more time and experience to get this; for that is merely another idea arising in the timeless Being.
AA: And this is also another pseudo/Neo-Advaita idea.

PA: Awakening is your real nature. You are awakened. But if you believe you are a soul waiting to be awakened you’ve got a long wait.
AA: But if you are just the mind or conditioned mind-self and believe you are already awakened, then you are truly LOST. Even if you have transformed your negative personality and beyond the mind, you are still your Atman-self; you are NOT the Brahman-Self.

PA: Attempting to identify with the Source is an idea. You are already That.
AA: And this is just another pseudo/Neo-Advaita idea. If you are the mind, conditioned mind-self, or even Atman (individual awareness) you are not already that.

Embodiment/ CHAPTER 68

All (matter and spirit) is Brahman/Self. There is only Brahman.

If we are all god’s children, then what’s so special about Krishna, Buddha, Jesus (or any Avatars)?

The only place in this Universe that “evil” exists is within the hearts (negative emotions) and minds of some people. Human beings are part of Brahman. In this sense, even a murderer is part of God. Even a murderer or a narcissist like Donald Trump can falsely claim that he is the Self/That/Brahman like pseudo/Neo-Advaitins do. But is he the embodiment of the four elements (divine qualities)? No. This is the difference between an Enlightened/Self-realised human being (Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept) and others who are at various stages on the path to Brahman/Self.

Brahman is within the bacteria, and yet the bacteria are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the trees, and yet the trees are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the monkeys, and yet the monkeys are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the human beings, and yet the human beings are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the Avatars (Self-realised/Enlightened human beings), and the Avatars are close to being Brahman-Self.

“Of course, every person is Divine but there are degrees in the manifestation of that Divinity. There is difference in the degree of the manifestation of the Divine element—in the voltage of the bulb which turns. the current into light.” – Sai Baba

Brahman includes EVERY thing—who, what, when, where, and why—simultaneously. This is the multi-dimensionally infinite Unity of BEing. So, to the “eyes” of such a BEing, that part of ItSelf who is a murderer is just as much a part of ItSelf as is the prayerful sage. Both exist in a specific point of time and space, yet they also exist on an infinite continuum of Self. Their actions are temporary. A few thousand revolutions of the Sun from now and they might be a venerable Avatar. We see each other only within the confines of the present moment in time and space, but the “eyes” of Brahman ALWAYS see the ENTIRE infinite continuum of Self. Brahman perceives EVERY thing in its total context, from its basest imperfection to its complete perfection. Brahman sees that even the murderer will reach perfection and that even the sage was once imperfect.

This of course does not in any way excuse the murderer of their heinous crimes. We must each and every one of us face the consequences of our actions. The divine fire of karma is what leads us to inevitable perfection and there’s no escaping it.

Here, within our temporal realm, the individual self (Atman) evolves. Spirituality is about the evolution of human consciousness in your physical human body. There is a difference between an imperfect human being and a perfect human being (Avatar). There is a difference in their awareness/consciousness. There is a reason why an Avatar can perform miracles and others cannot. You cannot learn intellectually to perform miracles but you can perform ALL the miracles when your Atman merges with Brahman.

The stated goal of ancient Advaita/spirituality/religion is the union of Atman with Brahman. The impact of a drop of water in the ocean is a common analogy for the Atman’s journey and union with Brahman. It should lead into Bliss, Being, and Universal Consciousness. And this is the state of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Just saying everything is God/Self or “Self Alone Is” doesn’t make one Enlightened/Self-realised or at-one-with Brahman. There is something much more to spirituality.

Divine name/ CHAPTER 69

“The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. For lack of a better name, I call it the Tao.” – Lao Tzu

Brahman is nameless and all names. Brahman is formless and all forms. Brahman “cannot be named” for the simple reason that it is infinite, non-sequential, and eternal and any “name” is a finite thing that can encompass only a finite part of the Infinite. The indefinite term “That” is used in the Upanishads to designate the Invisible-Absolute, because no word or name can fully define It. I am That = I am Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

The different divine names are intended to represent different aspects of Brahman. Each name is a symbolic form that expresses to human minds some part of the nature of an otherwise unknowable reality. In Hebrew Kabbalah, the Name of God, IHVH, is said to be the “unspeakable Name,” When a religious Jew reads the Torah aloud, the term “Adonai” is substituted for the IHVH out of respect for its unspeakableness. In some ways, IHVH is the Jewish equivalent of the sadhana of Raamanaama/Namasmarana. This is the final stage of spiritual practice.

The names are only symbols for the nameless. Select any name and form that appeals to you. Repetition of the name leads to union/merging with the name. You become it. It (the essence) becomes part of your soul. You become what you worship.

You can choose the form of an Avatar, the form of our infinite physical Universe, or the formless Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. The form should symbolise the formless with four divine qualities (the omnipotence, corresponding to the fire principle; the omniscience and wisdom belonging to the air principle; the universal love with the water principle; and the omnipresence with the earth principle). Concentrate on one quality after the other until your form actually can be perceived by you as endowed with the four fundamental qualities. The goal then is to embody all four aspects of Brahman. You are preparing to internalize in yourself the essence of Brahman.

You embody Brahman in one of its many aspects. Meditate on one of the qualities for so long until you become quite certain that the respective quality has become embodied in you. Advanced spiritual aspirants incorporate the four Divine qualities into their own self awareness. This is a process of raising one’s own Atman-awareness to the level of Brahman. The path of the saints and modern Jnanis is to become at-one-with only very very few aspects of the divine qualities (charity, mercy, kindness, limited spiritual knowledge, etc.) but the path of the Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts is to become at-one-with all four elements, in perfect balance. A true initiate will seek to acknowledge all divine aspects equally and to realise them gradually.

The name must be recited with full feeling of awe and wonder, humility, and reverence. By repeating the name, you identify with its attributes. In the first stage the initiate says, “I am in Brahman” and “Brahman is in me” and in the final stage, “I and Brahman are one, or I am That/ Brahman”, the duality between the two having been shed.

This is not merely saying with your lips/mind/conditioned mind-self “I am Brahman/That”; you (Atman) must become That so that you can BE that. It takes years of practice. This is the ultimate goal or purpose of life/human existence. Enlightenment/ Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is the same essential purpose of all religions. This is the real purpose of religion.

Until the universal awareness has become permanently natural and your habitual state, know that you have not realised the Universal Self, maybe only glimpsed it.

“There are many who have stacked libraries in their brains; who have visited and venerated all the holy places between the Himalayas and the Cape; who have sat at the feet of every one of the contemporary sages and saints; who have performed all the rites prescribed in the sacred texts, but, who do not know the answer to the simple question: How to bring about the union between jeeva and Brahmam, the individual and the Universal?” – Sai Baba

If you claim to be the Self but do not embody the essence of the Self or the four elements (omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and universal love) then it is all just your mind. You have been fooled by your own psyche.

Some gurus/teachers are only a manifestation of one aspect of Brahman, whereas a true Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept is Brahman Itself (but not literally to the fullness while on this physical realm).

“The knower of Brahman becomes Brahman.” – Mundaka Upanishad, 3.2.9

In One Lifetime/ CHAPTER 70

Gold jewels are many but gold is one. Individual selves (Atman) are many but Brahman-Self is one. There is only one Universal Self.

A Tibetan monk once said, “We don’t believe that you went to the moon, but you did. You may not believe that we reach Enlightenment in one lifetime, but we do.”

Each and every one of us will reach ultimate Self-realisation/Enlightenment in time. There is nothing that can prevent this from happening. It is destined, but not in this particular lifetime. Some will but most will take many, many more lifetimes to reach this state. As a whole, humanity may not reach full Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self for hundreds of thousands of years yet.

“There is a difference between a scientific truth and a religious truth. A scientific truth can be borrowed. A scientific truth, once known, becomes everybody else’s property. Albert Einstein discovered the theory of relativity. Now there is no need for everybody to discover it again and again and again. That would be foolish. Once discovered, it has become public. Now it is everybody’s theory. Once discovered, once proved, now even a school child can learn it. Now no genius is needed—you need not be an Albert Einstein. Just a mediocre mind will do, just an ordinary mind will do. You can understand it and it is yours. Of course, Einstein had to work for years—then he was able to discover it. You need not work. If you are ready to understand and put your mind to it, in just a few hours you will understand.

But the same is not true about a religious truth. Buddha discovered, Christ discovered, Nanak and Kabir discovered, but their discovery cannot become your discovery. You will have to rediscover it again. You will have to move again from ABC; you cannot just believe in them. That won’t help. But that is what humanity has been doing: mistaking religious truth for scientific truth. It is not scientific truth, it can never become a public property. Each individual has to come to it alone, each individual has to come to it again and again. It can never become available in the market.” – Osho

“Not the greatest Master can go even one step for his disciple; in himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.” – Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

Humanity must pass through further stages of evolution of human consciousness before it can reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. The individual must go beyond humanity through self-transformation to complete the Great Work of Enlightenment. The narrow path of Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts can be trodden by all of humanity together, following the slow route of evolution. But it can also be walked much more quickly, by any individual human being (Atman-self). These two paths, collective and individual reach the same goal by approximately the same stages; the difference between them is purely a matter of time.

The Great Work of alchemy is to speed up the natural process of ripening metals to gold already at work in nature that takes millions of years to accomplish (symbolic alchemical language).

“It is never to be expected in a revolution that every man is to change his opinion at the same moment. There never yet was any truth or any principle so irresistibly obvious that all men believed it at once.” – Thomas Paine

“We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation.” – Carl Sagan

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: No one becomes enlightened…No one can become enlightened…There is no you. There is no person. There is only the Self…You have become Brahman. You have become all-pervading. You have become your Self without trying to do so.

HB: This is not non-duality. This is nondoodle-Advaita quackery.

HB: If there is no you, who is babbling? And you are admitting you are not enlightened. You are contradicting yourself. So what becomes Brahman? Self is multi-dimensional. There is the ego (falseʽIʼ/false self) and there is the ʽIʼ of the Atman-self and ultimately the ʽIʼ of One infinite Self. The personal-self doesn’t become Enlightened but transformed and clearly expresses and reflects your true Divine Self, the “eternal being”. The temporal Atman-self becomes the Eternal Atman and becomes at-one-with Brahman while on this physical realm and completely dissolves in Brahman and becomes Brahman-Self after death/ascent. This happens to every single individual.

PA: Isn’t identification as “avatar” is the illusory self-sense finding ways to disguise itself as something it can never really be? The ego can morph into whatever shape it needs to take to perpetuate its sense of separateness. So, people end up thinking they are enlightened, better than others, special, to be venerated, an avatar, have a special mission or mandate, etc.

HB: This may apply to some teachers but then they are not Enlightened/Self-realised. But you are also conditioned by this false no-self philosophy and your false ego is playing tricks on your mind. Self is not some singularity, it is multi-dimentional. There is a self that becomes Enlightened/ Self-realised, the Atman-self. True avatars are just being their core self to the fullest. That’s all.

“They (Enlightened/Self-realised ones) were overcome with compassion, for the fellow-pilgrims struggling along the path they had-traversed; they were full of agony at the plight of fellow-beings who were sweltering in the heat of worldly entanglements.” They desired to establish peace on earth and good-will among mankind. Their attention was ever on the Vedhic message, “Swayam theernah, paraan thaarayathi.” “Themselves having crossed the Sea of’ Samsaara (change), they help others to do likewise.” Themselves risen to the Divine, they helped others to rise.” – Sai Baba

False ego to Divine/Brahman/Universal “I”/ CHAPTER 71

According to ancient Advaita, there is a fundamental difference between “real” self (real “I”) and what it defines as the “false” ego (false “I”). The real “I” is our true selves, our very essence, our Atman, the consciousness that makes us aware and awake to objective/absolute reality. The false “I” is identifying merely with your name, family, country, race, colour, job, society, religion, horoscope, nationality, and so on. Narcissism/Egocentrism is what we generally refer to as the ego (false ego/false “I”).

“Crushing out of the conceit “I am” – this is the highest happiness.” – Buddha

“Ego does not exist anywhere else except in human beings, and ego starts growing as the child grows. The parents, the schools, colleges, university, they all help to strengthen the ego for the simple reason that for centuries man had to struggle to survive and the idea has become a fixation, a deep unconscious conditioning, that only strong egos can survive in the struggle of life. Life has become just a struggle to survive. So we help every child to become more and more strong in the ego, and it is there that the problem arises.” – Osho

False pride and narcissism/egocentrism arise from a lack of self-knowing, whereas true humility is the product of self-knowing and self-acceptance.

“It is indeed ludicrous to find people competing for position and status when God alone is the entity deserving power and position and status. How transient is human status? How flimsy the bases of authority? How tawdry the signs and symbols of power? Truly, the ego plays all sorts of tricks with man and makes him behave most ridiculously and often most dangerously!” – Sai Baba

Usually, when people speak of the “ego,” they’re really referring to the negative aspects of the personality of which they are ashamed. But as the spiritual aspirant transforms those negative aspects through the work of character transformation, a new sense of the self emerges (the true Atman-“I”). The spiritual aspirant doesn’t “eradicate” the self/ego. Instead, he or she transforms the small self of the personality with all its negative aspects into something positive and beneficial.

Most people experience their lives as individuals, separate from others and the rest of the Universe. Most people identify themselves merely with their bodies and mind (names, nationalities, race, careers, family, religious group, etc.). This false identity must be transformed and remain as the Atman-self.

The false ego/false “I”/devil is the greatest obstacle on your path towards the Truth/Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. It is like a small cloud that hides the big Sun.

“Discover the immortal ‘I’ and know that it is the spark of God in you.” – Sai Baba

There has always been a sense of our essential I-ness (autonomous, sovereign self) at the physical, personal, and individual levels. Most people’s “I” is body-mind only. People identify themselves with body-mind only. That is the whole problem. Your ultimate “I” is an infinite, all-encompassing (spirit and matter), universal being. With spiritual evolution, the false “I” is transformed and the real “I” is realised. Be that Universal “I”.

The false “I”/possessive self/false ego makes one feel: I am the doer. Brahman is the doer and you are just the instrument. Transform your little “I”, and let the great “I” BE.

Ego (false ego/false “I”) does not exist in children, birds, plants, and animals, but the individual self (Atman) still exists. It is part of the divine evolution/creation process.

There is no ego in indigenous societies as we see in the Western societies/civilization.

Q&A
Q: Spiritual practices must leave one without identity?
A: Leave you without a false identity. What do you think is the meaning of “I am That”? As you merge with Brahman, you merge with the Universal “I” or Brahman “I”.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: I wanted to achieve Self-realisation, but my Jnani guru says it has already been done for us (Self is already realised).
HB: Your Jnani is a fool. First leave your Western conditionings in the West if you interested in the truth. You want to reach Self-realisation with your false ego (false “I”)? That’s not possible. That is Endarkment or Mind-realisation. Self-realisation exists only after the work of character transformation, not before.

PA: He also says everything and everyone has false ego except Self.
HB: Including yourself? You are projecting your false egos on nature. What you call self is actually false ego, and what you attack as false ego is the self. You fools attack the noble beings as false ego and think of your false egos as the self. Your false egos are very delicate. You hate those who speak the truth. You are even manipulating the meaning of ego. Don’t confuse Atman-“I” with ego (false ego/false “I”). It is unity in diversity. Every individual self is the unique expression of the one infinite Brahman-Self.

“Remaining alertly aware and thought-free, with a still mind devoid of differentiation of Self and non-Self even while being engaged in the activities of worldly life, is called the state of Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi (the natural state of abidance in the Self when all differentiation has ceased). This is called Akhandakara vritti, the ‘I’ of infinite perfection as contrasted with the ‘I am the body’ notion of those who have not realised the Self.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.18, v.40

“Develop divine love. Divine love is completely selfless. Human love is mostly selfishness; all the time it thinks only of the little “i.” That “I” is the ego. The ego is a very bad quality. Ego sees everything as separate; it sees everything as dual. You must remove this ego and see only the Unity.” – Sai Baba

“Recognising the immanence of the Divine, one has to dedicate all acts to the Divine. What is the act, when you analyse it deeply? It is the manipulation of the Divine by the Divine, for the sake of the Divine through the skill endowed by the Divine; there is no I or mine in it, except the Universal I and the Divine My.” – Sai Baba

There is no “loss” of identity in this process. There is only the transformation of identity. (From “I am merely this body and mind” to “I am the That/Brahman”). There is no loss in this dissolution of the individual self. It is instead, the ultimate transformation of identity, an expansion from the individual to that of Unity with All.

Atman becomes Brahman/ CHAPTER 72

Know yourself and you will know the secrets of the Universe and Brahman/Eternal Tao/The source. If you perceive the formless Brahman, you will eventually become at – one with Brahman (merged with Brahman).

“The knower of Brahman becomes Brahman.” – Mundaka Upanishad, 3.2.9

The universe is my body/ CHAPTER 73

“Behold in My Body the entire Universe” – Krishna (3228 BCE – 3102 BCE)

The One Self/Brahman is not separate from the physical body. The physical body is the vehicle of the personal-self, the individual-self (Atman-self), the Greater-self (Paramatman-self), and the Brahman-Self.

Your physical body is the temple of your Atman (individual self/individual awareness). The entire physical Universe is the temple/body of Brahman/All-pervading Consciousness. When your individual awareness merges with Brahman, the entire physical Universe becomes your body.

Brahman encompasses both the physical and the non-physical realms simultaneously. The entire infinity of the manifest Universe IS Brahman—it is not the mere shell which houses Brahman. Brahman encompasses the entire Universe (planet Earth, stars, galaxies, asteroids, and so on), both the Manifest (physical Universe) and the Unmanifest (Universal Consciousness) simultaneously.

The Universe is the body/form of Brahman, and I (Atman) am part of Brahman. I (Universal Self) am Brahman, and the Universe is my (Universal Self) body/form. I (Universal Self) am the Universe. All is I (Universal “I”). There is only I (Universal “I”).

There is only “I” (universal “I”); there is nothing apart from Me. Whatever is seen, is only my form/body. Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but I (Universal “I”) have no place to lay my head. The entire physical Universe is my body.

I AM THAT/ CHAPTER 74

“One should ever abide, as the sole I AM, the Supreme Self.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.17, v.29

“I Am That” (“Tat Tvam Asi” in Sanskrit).” – Chandogya Upanishad, 6.8.7

“I AM THAT WHICH IS.” – Temple of Isis at Sais, Ancient Egypt

“I Am That. I Am.” – Exodus 3:14

“Before Abraham was, I AM.” – John 8:58

The phrase “I am” most succinctly encompasses the experience of Brahman. It’s the same sort of I-ness as what ordinary people experience except here is the awareness that Self is infinite, all-encompassing (entire physical Universe and non-physical realms), and that there is no other.

Brahman “cannot be named” for the simple reason that it is infinite, non-sequential and eternal and any “name” is a finite thing that can encompass only a finite part of the Infinite. The indefinite term “That” is used in the Upanishads to designate the Invisible-Absolute, because no word or name can fully define It. I am that = I am Brahman.

The ultimate spiritual goal of Self-realisation or Enlightenment is to consciously merge with Brahman. This is a bit different, and means more than just to “know Brahman.”

One must become That, not “speak” it in the mundane sense. True Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts are at-one-with That—they become That. This is why they can perform miracles and the theorists cannot.

You become “That” (Atman becomes Brahman) so that you can be “That.” If you don’t become “That,” you are not That. You are just the old, conditioned little mind-self. True Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts are the embodiment of omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and universal love.

Warriors are rare souls; they embody qualities of strength, courage, endurance, self-control, and determination. Bruce Lee embodied the very essence of how a fighter should be. You cannot claim to be a warrior if you do not embody the essence of a warrior. In the same way, if you don’t embody the essence of “THAT,” you are not “THAT.”

“When you say, Thath thwam asi (Thou art that), you must have the traits of that which you claim to be” – Sai Baba

Even parrots (and every natural form you see in the Universe) came out of the eternal realm/Nothingness/Brahman like the waves from the ocean. Brahman is also within the parrots, and yet the parrots are far from being Brahman. You cannot claim you are That (God) when you are so far from being That.

“Everything that is, was, and will be, eternally IS, even the countless forms, which are finite and perishable only in their objective, not in their ideal Form.” – Helena Blavatsky

There are several levels of Self. There has always been a sense of our essential I-ness (autonomous, sovereign self) at the physical, personal, and individual levels. Expand your individual I-ness until it merges with other individuals (human, non-human, and non-biological beings) in this Universe and ultimately with the infinite Brahman “I” (Universal “I”).

At every level of consciousness—no matter how inclusive or exclusive, from the infinitely finite, through the infinitely infinite—consciousness always perceives itself as being at the Centre. In other words. the Centre is always self-aware. Even Brahman experiences this sense of Self. The only difference between our normal human sense of self-awareness and that of Brahman is that ours is finite and encompasses only a small portion of the whole. Brahman, on the other hand, experiences ALL of the finite components which constitute the infinite continuum of consciousness, simultaneously, as Its own Self. There is, of course, a quantum difference, but at every level, there is the same quality of self-identification or awareness.

For those who have not realised the Universal Self, the “I” is confined to their little physical body and mind, whereas for those who have realised the Self, the ‘I’ is an infinite, all-encompassing (spirit and matter), universal being.

The false ego/“I” surrenders only when it recognises the Universal Self/Universal “I”

Be the Universal “I”. It is infinite and eternal. Your body-mind “I” is relatively unreal (temporal).

Identification with the Universal Self is the only way to transform the false ego. Practice of “I am That” leads to the experience of the Universal “I AM”. Being the Universal “I” is the ultimate spiritual goal/reality.

There is only one Brahman, and therefore there is only one infinite “I”. It is the Brahman “I”. The “I AM” is the Brahman “I AM”. If it is infinite and eternal, there is nothing beyond it. If there is something beyond it, it cannot be that which is infinite and eternal.

“The Self alone is the spontaneous self-effulgent Awareness; that alone is eternal bliss; that alone is Existence everlasting; that alone is all embracing perfection, the sole God-head without a rival and the sole primordial stuff of the Universe. In the conviction born of this experience, one should ever abide, as the sole I AM, the Supreme Self.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.17, v.29

“I am God. And You too are God. The only difference between you and me is that while I am aware of it, you are completely unaware.” – Sai Baba

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: I want to go beyond the “I AM”. How about I-I?
HB: Why don’t you go beyond even that? Try J-J or J-Lo (Jennifer Lopez). There is no such thing as I-I. Silence is always better than these meaningless pseudo/Neo-Advaitin concepts.

“Be silent or let thy words be worth more than silence.” – Pythagoras

The universal “I”/ CHAPTER 75

All is in Brahman. Brahman is in all. One in all. All in One. There is only Brahman.

Brahman is in me (physical body), and I (physical body) am in Brahman. You are in me (Universal Self/Brahman), and I (Universal Self) am in you. I am you, and you are ME.

There is only Brahman. I am all (entire Universe) and all is me (Universal Self). There is only “I” (universal “I”); there is nothing apart from Me. Whatever is seen is only my form/body.

“O enlightened men! Through My power all the creatures take breath, eat, see and hear; Even if they do not know, they dwell in My Love; I am in them, they are in Me.” – Rig Veda 10.125.4

“When the ego disappears you are simply one with the whole.” – Osho

“To realise the Self of undivided bliss, one should always practice the knowledge that I am Brahman.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.10, v.17

If you understand the “I” or I-ness of planet Earth (Nature Is Speaking by Julia Roberts), then you might understand the Universal “I”/Brahman “I”.

“All beings merge into My (Universal “I”/Brahman) primary material Nature at the end of a cycle of just over 311 trillion solar years, and I (Universal “I”/Brahman) create them again at the beginning of the next cycle.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 9.07)

“I am the sapidity in the water, I am the radiance in the Sun and the moon, the sacred syllable OM in all the Vedas, the sound in the ether, and potency in human beings. I am the sweet fragrance in the Earth. I am the heat in the fire, the life in all living beings, and the austerity in the ascetics.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.08-09)

“I know the beings of the past, of the present, and those of the future, but no one really knows Me.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.26)

“After attaining Me, the great souls do not incur rebirth in this miserable transitory world, because they have attained the highest perfection.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.15)

“I am everything, I am the Supreme; I am the One, without a second.” – Sai Baba

I am in all (everyone and everything). The entire Universe is within me. Everything comes from me and everything returns to me. I am all. I am all that exists. I am the alpha and the omega. I am never born; I never die. I am infinite and eternal.

I am hidden yet obvious everywhere. I am nameless and formless. I am bodiless yet embodied in everything. There is nothing that I am not. I am all names and all forms. I am the unity of all things.

I am That. I am Akasha. I am the Eternal Tao. I and Brahman are one. I am Brahman. I am the four Elements (Yod Heh Vav Heh or IHVH). I am omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and universal love. I am the creator, preserver, and destroyer of the entire Universe. I am the visible (Manifest) and the invisible (Unmanifest). I became and am still becoming (evolution/creation) the manifest in the sequential realm while still remaining the unchangeable reality (undifferentiated Brahman). There is only “I” (Universal “I”). I AM.

Those who perceive me (Universal Self) in all things, and all things in me, are never far from me, and I am never far from them.

I am beyond your intellect. You can only understand Me when you have understood yourself, your own Basic Truth. Know yourself.

I AM/ CHAPTER 76

“There is nobody else greater than Me (Universal Self).” – Krishna

Before your Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet was born, I am! Before the entire physical Universe was born, I am! There is no other, there is only “I” (universal “I”); there is nothing apart from Me. Whatever is seen is only my form/body. There is no one greater than I.

Before the Universe was, Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman is. In Nothingness the Universe comes into being, in Nothingness it lasts, and into Nothingness it dissolves. Before the creation/projection/manifestation of the infinite Universe and after the reabsorption/dissolution/unmanifestation, I AM.

Only A Few/ CHAPTER 77

All human beings intuitively know the way, but only a few have the courage and walk. Only a handful return to the shore of eternity in every generation. It is sought by many, and realised/found by few; taught and heard by many, and understood by a few; book learned by many, and discovered by a few; seen by all, but perceived by few; believed by many, but known by few. Those who babble do not know, and those who know do not babble. Silence is the only message from Brahman/Eternal Tao. Silence is the ultimate teaching of the Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts.

Enter by the narrow path of the true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts, for wide is the path that leads to destruction, and there are many who walk on it. The narrow path is a path strewn with hard work which leads to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self, and there are only a few who succeed in each generation, in the various lands of the Earth. Self-realisation/Enlightenment itself is indeed very simple, but the path to Self-realisation/Enlightenment is complex and laborious. You will have to create the narrow path by walking yourself; you will not find a ready-made path. Cut your own way through the jungle.

The path that purifies your negative thoughts and emotions and leads you to thoughtless awareness is the right path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

The narrow path is the path of the soul, not the mind, intellect, or logic. Subtle is the narrow path, difficult is the way, and hard it is to enter the subtle non-physical realms to return to the Source. This subtle inner path of expansion/evolution of Atman is the pathless path with few trails left behind by those who have returned to the shore of eternity.

You will not find the narrow path by reading books. All the spiritual scriptures are always full of blinds, stumbling blocks, and misleading statements, and they have important keys left out. Many concepts are given to one thing and one concept given to many things. The written/spoken words are ALWAYS only pointers and not an end in themselves.

There are many challenges on the spiritual path. Obstacles and sufferings are part of the path. One must have an organised life, free of needless distractions. One must have patience, self-motivation, rugged endurance, and determination. One must have a heart like a child with deep inner longing/yearning to reunite with the Source.

There are also many dangers on the narrow path. Many people completely lose it and go mad. Some have even managed to turn Advaita into Illusionism. What happened to “being, consciousness, and bliss”?

Remember the parable of the sower (Mark 4:3-9).
1. Some hear, but the evil/demon will cast doubt and confusion, leaving them as they were.
2. Some hear, but they don’t put what they hear into practice, don’t experience and embody it, and so the message does not endure.
3. Some hear and start practicing, but soon realise the path is not as easy as it seemed. There are too many challenges. Society is full of demons/evil, and they don’t want to you to pursue the narrow/pathless path. So they give up.
4. And a few hear the message and realise Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is the only non-physical treasure that maintains its value. So they dedicate their lives to practice and return to the shore of eternity.

“Scarcely one out of thousands of persons strives for perfection of Self-realisation. Scarcely one among those successful strivers truly understands Me.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.03)

“Few are there among men who arrive at the other shore (become Arhats); the other people here run up and down the shore.” – Buddha

“Arise, awake, and learn by approaching the exalted ones, for that path is sharp as a razor’s edge, impassable, and hard to go by, say the wise.” – Katha Upanishad

For many are invited/called, but few merge with Brahman in every generation.

Unless you know yourself, you cannot know Me. Those who perceive the formless Brahman know Me!

Silence/ CHAPTER 78

“Silence is an empty space, space is the home of the awakened mind.” – Buddha

“Listen to the wind, it talks. Listen to the silence, it speaks. Listen to your heart, it knows.” – Native American proverb

“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.” – Albert Einstein

Silence is your natural state. The silent sage is the best one to listen to. A wise sage once said nothing. Meditation leads to inner silence. Internal silence = Emptiness state of pure Being.

It is as difficult for an Enlightened/Self-realised being to engage in mundane activities and thoughts as it is for an unenlightened one to be free from it.

Silence is not blanking out. Silence is alive and full of universal awareness.

In silence, one is in intimate contact with the entire Universe. In profound inner silence, you can hear the whispers of Brahman/Eternal Tao. EVERY thing in the Universe communicates in this way if you have the ears to hear.

Inner silence can be the best ritual, pilgrimage, worship, etc.

Inner silence is the rest to the busy modern mind, what sleep after some exercise is to the physical body.

All the answers you are seeking are already there when your mind is still.

When you are ready, you might recognise the true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts. And when your inner silence is ready, you (Atman) will perceive the formless Brahman.

Silence is the source of omnipotence. Silence is the source of truth. Silence is the source of wisdom. Silence is the taste of infinity and eternity. Silence is the only message from Brahman/Eternal Tao. Silence is the ultimate teaching of Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts.

Be still and know yourself. Be still and know that you are part of Brahman. Be still and know that there is only Brahman. Be still and know that you (divine self) are Brahman. Be still and know that there is only “I” (Universal “I”).

True friendship comes when silence becomes a language between two souls.

If you do not know your Atman-self, then you really do not know others, not even your partner, no matter how many years you spend with them. If you truly know yourself, you can connect with the soul of anyone or anything easily. You don’t even need to talk to them. When two advanced souls meet, they know each other as if they have known each other for lifetimes.

There is another layer to the meaning of spiritual silence. Keep silence—just because you are ready for these truths does not mean everyone else is. People, be they friend, enemy, family, or stranger, fear what they do not understand. What they do not understand, they will attack openly or in secret and attempt to destroy.

All pioneers stand alone initially. It may be natural for you, but it’s not natural to 99.9% of your fellow man. Be aware that what excites you often holds no excitement for others.

Speak to no one, whoever it may be, about your spiritual path and experiences. By so doing, you expend the current of energy which you should instead gather for yourself. The possibility also exists that you will direct hostile counter currents towards yourself, which will harm you and jeopardise your spiritual path and goal. Do not even speak to your wife/husband or close friends about it.

Do not share your positive spiritual experiences with others. Spiritual experiences are of a very intimate, personal nature. Their intimacy is easily violated when we share them with others. This is the number one reason why spiritual people lose confidence and give up.

Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to fools! They are not interested in truth. They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.

If you care about what other people think, you will not reach your spiritual destination. Stay silent until you reach the goal so that the dogs do not bark at you.

Recognize the true Buddhas/Siddhas/Avatars/Adepts/ CHAPTER 79

“The people of this generation revere the dead prophets while rejecting the living ones. It has been so in every generation…” – Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

Most people (including 99% of all the religious leaders and spiritual teachers) do not have the ability to recognize the true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts (hereon referred to as Avatars).

Science doesn’t (yet) understand the secrets of the classical elements, the nature of miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis), the phenomenon of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self and the nature of the Avatars.

True Avatars are embodiment of omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent (immortality), and universal love. But even the greatest Avatars are only the agent of Brahman, not the fullness of Brahman itself. Avatars are still human beings.

Externally, they are human beings—living, working (simple jobs or charity work), eating, sleeping, and behaving like everyone else (Few can live without food, water, or even sleep). They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and sexes, so don’t be judgemental. Here, within the temporal realm, they all have physical bodies (physical self), personalities (personal self), and individualities (Atman/individual self). Absolute perfection is not a thing that can occur in the temporal physical realm. It is an infinite state that, by its nature, would have to encompass the whole physical and non-physical Universe within itself. The best we can do as physical human beings is to approach perfection, to ceaselessly strive to be the best person we can conceive of being.

It IS inevitable that we will, each and every one of us, reach a state of complete Self-realization, but the nature of the material Universe is such that no single one of us achieves true, absolute perfection while incarnate. Perfection exists ONLY in the eternal realm after death/ascent. The true ultimate union/perfection exists when an Avatar enters the eternal realm after death/ascent. But here, within our temporal realm, all we can do is approach perfection. This is a process. We are not robots.

You are not merely your personality. Your personality is an infinitesimal part of your WHOLE self.

Only a very few who have advanced along the narrow path of true Avatars can comprehend the nature of an Avatar and can recognize the modern-day Avatars. The nature of the Avatars are beyond the comprehension of everyday people. One must be very advanced or an Avatar oneself in order to understand another Avatar. True Avatars are beyond the keenest intellect, the sharpest brain. Ninety-nine percent of all the religious leaders and spiritual teachers (including Jnanis) have failed to grasp the sublimity of the Avatars. The mystery of an Avatar is beyond the reach of intelligence. It cannot be reached by logic alone.

People are confusing various stages of awakening with Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. In laboratory alchemy, the color sequence (black, white, yellow, orange, and finally red) represents different alchemical stages of our lapis philosophorum.

Miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) are natural for Avatars. Shocking to some, and unbelievable to others, but the truth is: Avatars are not only master of themselves, but also over Nature. They are embodiments of the archangels or can command the archangels at will. But they are not Superman, Batman, Ironman or Spiderman.

How can you recognise the true Avatars if you do not know your own real nature first? Unless you know your Atman-self, how can you know another? Until you realise yourself, you cannot recognise a true Avatar. True Avatars are very rare but always within your reach, but you do not recognise them. Unless you abide in your Atman you will not be able to gauge another’s Atman.

There have been, and there will again be, times when the Avatars can safely reveal themselves openly, but now is not one of those times. As a consequence, most modern-day Avatars do not seek to be martyrs, and instead sit silently aside with a pitying smile.

They know the folly of attempting to teach to the sleeping world that which it is neither ready nor willing to appreciate. They are not foolish to imagine that they can force upon a race of barbarians the truth capable of being understood only by the elect who have advanced along the narrow Path.

Q&A
Q: Who were Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, and others who performed miracles (Maha siddhis)?
A: They were human beings at-one-with the Universal Consciousness/Nothingness Brahman/Eternal Tao. They were Enlightened/Self-realised master (Avatars). All the miraculous faculties (Maha siddhis) are the natural powers inherent to humanity.

Q: Did God take human form?
A: Not literally. NO. Every form in the Universe is an expression of God. God took the form of a tree. God took the form of planet Earth. God took the form of a Galaxy, and so on.

There have been many Avatars before your Avatar/Son of God/Messiah/Prophet and there will be many Avatars in the future. All human beings have the “Avatar” nature and can and will eventually become the “Avatar/ Son of God/Messiah/Prophet.” It is destined.

Q: If God did miracles in the past to prove he was real and promote his message, he would be doing them now for the same reason.
A: Forget religious people’s understanding of miracles. Always seek the true meaning.

What are commonly called “miracles” are acts of Maha siddhis that use natures laws instead of violating them.

Q: How come no miracles happen now? How come they just happened in the past?
A: More miracles happened in the 20th century than for the last 2000 years. But you were conditioned by half-truth science and media to reject these things as coincidence or tricks. You have more faith in the lies and propaganda of the Western media than in your own intelligence. Know your conditionings first.

If you haven’t yet figured out the lies and distraction of the media, and cannot separate the wheat from the chaff, then do not judge.

Q: What are the criteria of true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts?
A: (i) have the ability to discern between truth and myth, to distill and simplify the ancient wisdom. Ability to separate the wheat from the chaff (select what is useful or valuable and reject what is useless or worthless).

(ii) courage to stand up for what’s right.

(ii) consistency in his/her teachings.

(iv) character and behaviour (but still human beings). Live in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility and reverence.

(v) falsely accused and rejected by Christian fanatics. The cornerstones that are rejected by most Christians.

(vi) the embodiment of all four elements or archangels (Uriel, Raphael, Michael, and Gabriel), the embodiment of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and universal love (but not literally to the fullness while on this physical realm).  An agent of Brahman.

(vii) divine Authority.

(viii) ability to perform miracles (miraculous abilities). It is the absolute and ultimate proof.

Q: Do you consider OSHO an enlightened master?
A: Osho was a mystic and a prolific author with over 650 books in print. His teachings are very useful for basic and an intermediate stage of spiritual development but not for the advance esoteric knowledge (the Secret Doctrine). OSHO didn’t understand the secrets of the classical elements, inner Elemental Equilibrium and the secrets of miraculous abilities. Osho did not perform any miracles.

Q: What about Ramana Maharshi?
A: Ramana Maharshi had an outer body experience and lived a life of sage. He reintroduced the concept of Self. But Ramana Maharshi’s teaching contains many errors and contradictions. Many Westerners are desperately trying to be in the Ramana Maharshi “lineage” and some even claim to be from the Ramana Maharshi “lineage”. But you are all just fools. Ramana Maharshi didn’t understand the esoteric knowledge (the Secret Doctrine). He didn’t understand the secrets of the classical elements, inner Elemental Equilibrium and the secrets of miraculous abilities. Ramana Maharshi did not perform any miracles.

You have to be very advanced spiritually or an Avatar to be able to recognize the modern-day Avatars. The nature of an Avatar can be understood by you only when you wear the glasses of holiness; holy things can be recognised only by the holy beings.

“Persons who have seen Me are many, but those who have understood My significance are few.” – Sai Baba

“Unless you know yourself you cannot know Me.” – Sai Baba

Denying the Avatarhood of modern-day Avatars is tantamount to denying Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and all other great souls. Denying modern-day Avatars is denying one’s own Avatar nature, the true core self.

Beauty/ CHAPTER 80

“Those who are awake live in a state of constant amazement.” – Buddha

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” – Buddha

“Every being in the Universe is an expression of the Tao.” – Lao Tzu

In every natural form in this Universe, I (Atman) see the beauty of the divine expression. My soul is nourished by beauty, in all its forms. Beauty is, quite literally, all around us and all within us.

Nature is a source of beauty, awe, and wonder. The perception and appreciation of beauty is always a holy act.

Everything in this Universe is an expression of the Divine/Brahman/Eternal Tao.

“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.” – Albert Einstein

If you don’t perceive the beauty in nature, then you don’t perceive the spirit and soul behind the form (its thing-ness). You have eyes but do not see, and ears but do not hear. The perception and appreciation of beauty is an experience of becoming at-one-with its Atman.

Planet earth/ CHAPTER 81

“If you too can come to love this land as our ancestors did, all the problems of the world will fall away like autumn leaves in the wind.”– Native American proverb

“When the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the Earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you; it is you who belongs to this land.” – Native American proverb

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.” – Aboriginal proverb

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realise their relationship, their oneness with the Universe and all its powers, and when they realise that at the centre of the Universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this centre is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” – Black Elk (Native American)

The entire visible physical Universe is the body/form of Brahman/The One Self/The source/Universal Consciousness/Eternal Tao/Nothingness. The formless Nothingness became the Universe that we see around us.

Environment/ CHAPTER 82

The one who perceives the unity of all beings is a companion of Nature.

“We are the same as plants, as trees, as other people, as the rain that falls. We consist of that which is around us, we are the same as everything. If we destroy something around us, we destroy ourselves.” – Buddha

“Trees and animals, humans and insects, flowers and birds: these are active images of the subtle energies that flow from the stars throughout the Universe. Meeting and combining with each other and the elements of the Earth, they give rise to all living things. The superior person understands this, and understands that her own energies play a part in it. Understanding these things, one respects the Earth as his or her mother, the heavens as his or her father, and all living things as his or her brothers and sisters.” – Lao Tzu

“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” – St. Francis of Assisi

We are very much a part of the wildlife and wilderness. Without the continued existence of Earth’s ecosystem, we will lose the quality and meaning of our lives.

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.” – Martin Luther

“If we kill off the wild, then we are killing a part of our souls.” – Jane Goodall

“A human being is part of the whole called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.” – Albert Einstein

“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.” – Charles Darwin

The more you perceive the planet Earth, sun, stars, galaxies, and the rest of the Universe with awe and wonder, the less ignorance you shall have for destruction.

“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese proverb

“Lone Indian Man Plants 1,360 Acre Forest by himself over 30 years”:
http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/wilderness-resources/stories/indian-man-single-handedly-plants-a-1360-acre-forest

“A person who cares about the Earth will resonate with its purity.” – Sally Fox

“We humans look rather different from a tree. Without a doubt we perceive the world differently than a tree does. But down deep, at the molecular heart of life, the trees and we are essentially identical.” – Carl Sagan

All living creatures and everything on this planet Earth are sacred. The entire infinity of the manifest Universe IS Brahman.

Conservation/ CHAPTER 83

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.” – Cree Indian proverb

“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Today, we are witnessing the start of the sixth mass extinction, the last one being 65 million years ago; it wiped out the dinosaurs. The existing state of capitalist industrial civilisation is the cause of this mass extinction, which could also lead to total human extinction.

Our duty necessitates that we defend and preserve all manner of biodiversity on Earth. The kingdom of God is within all living beings. It is not enough to study and be close to nature. It is our moral obligation to take care of the environment.

Our puppet governments are no longer interested in saving the environment. Few conservationists are willing to fight our own government to save the environment, while most good people just do nothing but watch.

The conservation fight to save the forest is part of the moral duty to stand up for what is right.

People are destroying this only planet Earth as if we have another one to move to.

The fate of mankind (extinction of the human species) is the most important issue facing humanity. The Earth will survive; the human species will not. Unless the global environmental problems are solved, humanity could become extinct.

The plan to protect our environment is in fact the plans to prevent human extinction.

The plants and animals are becoming extinct in unprecedented numbers, the ocean fisheries are in decline, and air and water pollution are on the rise. Without biodiversity, our spiritual well-being is affected. Without biodiversity, we will lose the balance of life on Earth.

“The world has become a market, and it’s this market we have to deal with, this idea of boundless and endless resources. When you say resources you are talking about our relatives, talking about our family. Fish are not a resource, they are our family and require respect…The structure of the world itself, it functions on natural law, and the natural law is a powerful regenerative process. It’s a process of regeneration that continues and grows and is endless. It’s absolutely endless if everyone agrees to the law and follows the law. But if you challenge the law, and you think you are going to change the law, then you are bound to failure…” – We Are All One (Native American Prophecy) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWtVTu6S51M#t=11

“Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change from radically impacting on our lives over the coming decades.” – James Lovelock

“Wildlife of the world is disappearing…simply because of a general and widespread ignorance and neglect.” – HRH Prince Philip

“The conservation of nature, the proper care for the human environment and a general concern for the long-term future of the whole of our planet are absolutely vital if future generations are to have a chance to enjoy their existence on this Earth.” – HRH Prince Philip

“If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” – Albert Einstein

Unless we preserve every scrap of biodiversity and practice conservation, future incarnations/generation will be forced to pay a painful price.

“Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air and drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something.” – Carl Sagan

If you are not aware of all these, then your awareness is limited to your skull. Spiritual teachers use the concept “awareness” a lot these days, but what exactly are they aware of? Are they even aware of conservation?

Learn from children/ CHAPTER 84

“Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of the little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.” – Black Elk (Native American)

Adults are human doings. Children are human beings. Trees are tree beings. Rocks are rock beings, and so on. Return to your true nature as human being.

Talk to children so that you can understand life again.

The more you advance spiritually, the more you become like children, embodying the spirit of curiosity and enthusiasm, and living in a state of constant awe and wonder.

Being is the rarest thing in the world. Most people are busy doing, and busy consuming.

Music/ CHAPTER 85

“The highest goal of music is to connect one’s soul to their Divine Nature, not entertainment.” – Pythagoras

“Music can change the world because it can change people.” – Bono

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” – Ludwig van Beethoven

Positive music is part of the universal religion/spirituality. Music is magic. Music can make you ecstatic. Music in itself is healing. Music touches our soul. Music is the language of the soul. Music nourishes our soul. Music purifies the soul from the negative effects of everyday life.

Music transcends language. Music begins where language ends. Music expresses the inexpressible.

You can easily empty your mind with the right kind of positive music. Spiritual music enhances your meditations. Music transforms the soul and guides you to a higher state of consciousness.

Music is a powerful tool for relaxation, meditation, healing, and Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. The right kind of music should lead to emptiness of mind or inner silence. Some music can even lead you to out-of-body experiences, and even astral travelling.

Music is one of the greatest treasures of the world. One day, music alone can become a path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

“If one listens to the wrong kind of music, he will become the wrong kind of person.” – Aristotle

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” – Plato

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” – Albert Einstein

“I sing in the language of the Heart. It’s an invented language that I’ve had for a very long time. I believe I started singing in it when I was about 12. Roughly that time. And I believed that I was speaking to God when I sang in that language.” – Lisa Gerrard

Surrounding/ CHAPTER 86

“In clinical studies, we have proven that 2 hours of nature sounds a day significantly reduce stress hormones up to 800% and activates 500-600 DNA segments known to be responsible for healing and repairing the body.” – Dr. Joe Dispenza

“Nature itself is the best physician.” – Hippocrates

The point of basic meditation is to achieve calmness and relaxation at will, no matter what the environmental conditions may be. But a solitary place, which is a quiet, secluded, and above all peaceful environment surrounded by nature, is ideal for the beginner. A meditator needs a spiritual atmosphere for meditation.

If the social environment is negative, your subconscious absorbs the negativity, and this eventually results in disease and suffering. Surround yourself with positive people in positive environments. Protect yourself from the negative influences of our society. Your environment should be conducive to the positive to the wellbeing of your psyche. If you do not consciously choose the positive, you unconsciously absorb the negative influences of our society.

If you live in a city with a population of 10 million, can you imagine 10 million people radiating and projecting all kinds of thoughts and emotions? The wise prefer to live in a secluded place surrounded by nature.

The environment is constantly filled with thoughts, emotions, and intentions of all kinds and degrees, steaming out from the minds of all kinds of people. Places, town, and cities all have their own personal atmosphere which affects persons living in them or visiting them. If you remain long in a place, you are likely to be influenced by the prevailing thought-atmosphere, and in spite of yourself, a change may begin to be manifest in you and you will sink or rise to the level of the prevailing thought.

When you are in the middle of a concrete city with all its noise, air, and psychic pollution, and you are feeling disconnected from the essential power of raw nature, use your imagination or creative visualisation and reconnect with the awesome power of nature.

We need a deep connection with nature in our lives. The modern city life is not natural for us. People do not know themselves because they have lost, or are losing, the connection with nature. You must get back in touch with nature.

Try to quiet your mind before beginning the observer exercise. One simple way is to imagine your favourite peaceful spot. It should immediately quiet your mind.

You’ll never appreciate the soul of nature if you have not learned to control your mind first.

If the working conditions or the environment are not an impediment to the spiritual path, then move elsewhere. If living with certain people is suffocating, then break away.

Here are some scientific proofs that nature heals you:

1. Scientists have known for some time that the human brain’s ability to stay calm and focused is limited and can be overwhelmed by the constant noise and hectic, jangling demands of city living, sometimes resulting in a condition informally known as brain fatigue.
“Easing Brain Fatigue With a Walk in the Park” http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/27/easing–brain–fatigue–with–a–walk–in–the–park/?_r=1

2. Surrounding yourself with nature can be one of the most powerful stress-relievers out there.

3. “Trees Linked With Human Health, Study Suggests”

Surround yourself with positive people/ CHAPTER 87

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal.” – Buddha

“False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.” – Socrates

“And to keep company with the wise. How long the road to the man who travels the road with the fool.” – Buddha

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.” – Buddha

Thoughts have the power to heal or destroy. Keep them positive. Empty your mind when you can. Being positive in a consumer society full of negative influences is not easy.

Advertising is big business, and subliminal messages are everywhere. Subliminal messages are known for their power to affect people without a person being aware of them. Those who are influenced in different directions are not likely to find the right path in life.

People’s comments, thoughts, words, emotions, intentions, and even their physical presence can influence you. The effects can be either negative or positive. The negative effect manifests as physical, emotional, or mental disorder. The so-called holy books are also toxic and dangerous. There are also some dangerous spiritual teachings that are unhealthy and harmful.

“Be careful whom you associate with. It is human to imitate the habits of those with whom we interact. We inadvertently adopt their interests, their opinions, their values, and their habit of interpreting events.” – Epictetus

You must exercise caution in approaching people and situations. You must avoid people who are living evil lives. Avoid negative sources, places, things, and people. If you are weak and vulnerable, and if you lack inner strength, then you get stuck with the wrong kind of people who can influence you negatively.

It is necessary to protect yourself from harmful influences that come from the outside, because they can interfere, or lead you astray from your course of spiritual development.

There are lot of fake people in the world, and they will tell you exactly what your mind/false ego/conditioned mind-self wants to hear. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. Be aware. Keep your distances!

Most people just want to see you fall. They want you to fail because your success is their failure. Don’t tell your problems to others: It only makes them happy that you have them. Most people are drowning in negativity, trying to prove themselves to others or win their empathy. Focus on your own journey. They are not there yet. And you are not their teacher, nor Saviour.

There is nothing worse than being emotionally butchered in a relationship with an abusive partner, so be very careful with whom you involve yourself romantically—and if you choose wrong, you must leave for your own safety and wellbeing.

Let go of everyone and everything that is negative and poison your spirit and soul. Walk away from anyone or anything that gives you bad vibes. Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution. Trust your conscience. You become like the people you hang out with. Negative/toxic people are in their pit and only want you down there with them.

Friends or family who are a problem and hinder the initiate/aspirant’s progress on the path aren’t assets. They are liabilities. The initiate doesn’t need any liabilities, so it is advisable to let them go, since the true initiate must devote as much time as he or she possibly can to his/her practices.

“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher. Life is already filled with those who want to bring you down.” – Oprah Winfrey

Many people are utterly miserable unless they make everyone else miserable too. Give your friendship to those that deserve it. Once you let go of negative people, positive ones appear.

Don’t waste your time trying to change the people around you, but change the people that you choose to be around. Surround yourself with positive people who bring out the best in you.

To root yourself to the Source/Brahman, one should have the wisdom of the tiny root cell at the tip. You see how it avoids hard harriers and circles round them, and how it penetrates to the source with great determination and wisdom.

Do not give fools and fanatics what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to fools and fanatics. They are not interested in truth. They only want to hear what feeds their false ego/conditioned mind-self, and listen only to respond in a negative way. They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.

Just as one rotten apple can spoil a whole barrel, one evil or negative person can destroy the entire spiritual group/organisation. Throw these rotten apples out of your barrel. It’s not their time yet, and you are not their saviour.

Before your doctor diagnoses you with bipolar disorder, depression, or madness, first make sure you are not surrounded by fools, fanatics, pseudo/Neo-Advaitins, con-men, or evil.

The more you become aware of negative/toxic people, the more you will appreciate being surrounded by birds and other animals in nature. They possess more highly developed moral standards than most humans.

Sexuality/ CHAPTER 88

“A women’s highest calling is to lead a man to his soul; so as to unite with source, her lowest calling is to seduce; separate man from soul; and leave him aimlessly wandering. A men’s highest calling is to protect woman; so she is free to walk the Earth unharmed, mans lowest calling is to ambush and force way into life of women” – Cherokee Proverb (Native American)

For most people, the strongest desires are those tied to sex, the strongest fears those linked with death. Most people are slaves to sexuality. Go beyond sex without suppressing it.

Transform your sex into pure mundane love, and transform your love into Universal love. This is difficult when you are young with raging hormones. Sex is an absolutely normal, natural human desire. But overindulgence in sex, or repression of it, is cultural conditioning. In other words, people are conditioned about sexuality in ways that are directly antagonistic to their essential nature as human beings. This leads to issues of guilt, sexual addiction, etc. Furthermore, it is exacerbated by our Western culture and is used to control people’s behaviour (e.g. sexualised advertisements, pornography, etc.).

You cannot suppress sexuality, but you can go beyond it. We humans have the freedom to go to extremes, but we can easily get lost there, too. Overindulgence in sex leads to an obsession. Sex obsession becomes a mental block. It blocks pure awareness. Some animal sexual behaviour does not apply to humans. Sex perverts are exploiting these loopholes. Some are using science (false science) to justify their sexual perversion. There are people who, instead of leading a natural, healthy life, lead a perverse sexual life. Thinking or relating everything to sex, they become sex-oriented, reduced to sex points. Sex obsession only weakens you.

Sex must not be suppressed, nor should it be overindulged. Repression also makes you a slave to sex. There are three components to human sexuality: biological imperative, thought, and emotion. We human beings are sexual creatures like our animal cousins with a basic, physiological, instinctual, genetically programmed need for sexual interaction. No matter what people think or feel about their sexuality, there is always the essential nature as human beings that has the final word. That is just Nature’s way.

The Christian Church has done everything in its power to suppress and control natural sexuality. The result is widespread sexual abuse by Christian priests. You see, it doesn’t work.

With tantric sex you can experience ecstasy and higher awareness—but then, you should not depend on sex, and must go beyond it. Never become a slave to sex. Examine your thoughts and feelings about your sexuality and look for the patterns you’ve adopted because of conditionings. Compare them to how your true, unconditioned self feels about your sexuality and listen very closely to that biological imperative. Look at the conditioned habits that you’ve developed that lead to the sexual fantasy and the overall “mentalisation” of sexuality.

Transform your sex into love, and transform your love into pure divine love. The true celibate does not repress sexual thoughts; instead, they transmute them. True celibacy is a way of attaining purity and of increasing willpower, etc. Self-transformation is the key, not suppression or overindulgence. Freedom from sex can only be achieved through self-transformation, not through suppression. Liberation from sex is only possible when you merge with Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/ Nothingness.

When you see the great beauty of the soul in its purest form, then celibacy will come naturally to you. Perceive the beauty of the soul in other human beings beyond any sexual fantasies. To the pure, all things are pure.

“Lust is insatiable and is a great devil. Know this as the enemy.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 3.37)

Fasting/ CHAPTER 89

Fasting is primarily the act of willingly abstaining from all substances except pure water, in an environment of total relaxation.

Fasting clears the mind and body of earthly attentions and draws us close to Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Fasting is not starvation. A spiritual fast involves surrendering and focusing on the Universal Self. Fasting helps you to surrender. Fasting is a time of surrender. And you have to surrender as you fast.

Fasting improves mental clarity and focus and leads to a heightened state of awareness. If you’ve never fasted, be prepared to deal with the first stage of detox symptoms; then it will have you feeling lighter, more enthusiastic, more energetic, and requiring less sleep. Fasting initially requires self-discipline and self-control.

Fasting is known as the “miracle cure” because it creates the atmosphere in which healing can occur. The body knows how to heal itself.

Fasting enables you to make a break with your past and set off in a new positive direction.

Human beings actually have the capability of surviving without food for much longer than you realise.

Fasting should be done privately and in humility. It is not a public display of spirituality—it is between you and Brahman alone.

Jesus himself struggled, prayed (meditated), fasted for forty days, was tempted by the devil, and ultimately disciplined himself to reach Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts are an inspiration.

Research has shown fasting for at least two days regenerates immune systems damaged by ageing or cancer treatment: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/06/06/fasting–health–benefits–immune–system–_n_5458024.html

Your decision to fast should be guided by your conscience. In addition, I highly recommend that you seek medical counsel. Fasting without water is extremely dangerous: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xvdbtt_eat–fast–live–longer–hd_shortfilms

Mantra/ CHAPTER 90

Brahman—the infinite, the eternal, the uncreated, the indefinable, the boundless, and the incomprehensible have been expressed symbolically by the word OM.

A mantra is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words which display the power or characteristics of an angel (an aspect of Brahman). The mantras are an expressions of ideas which serve the devotion of, or the connection with, the relevant power, being, authority, characteristic, etc.

Using a mantra is something like dialling a telephone number to the nonphysical realm. Mantras can be used in different ways. It can be used as an aid to meditation, to empty the mind, to connect and merge with the consciousness of an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept, to connect and merge with different aspects of Brahman, to merge with Brahman, or to even perform miracles.

How you use it depends on your own level of spiritual maturity.

Mantras can also be used as a magical/siddhi formula. They have no intrinsic power of their own. They only have whatever power you bring to it.

A pure thought from your pure soul and spirit is better than a mantra.

Om Mani Padme Hum

Gayatri Mantra

Om Namah Shivaya

Fanatic(F) vs. Human being(HB)
F: There is no other God but my God. You shall have no other Gods before my God. You shall not make for yourself a graven image. My God is better than your God. My God is a white male, beautiful, and rich. My God is a jealous God. My God can beat up your God.
HB: Are you really saying your God can urinate over the longest distance, or for the longest amount of time?

If God is one, how can you talk about other Gods or a false God? So you’re saying there are other Gods, and this is your definition of monotheism. Your holy babble is full of contradictions and inconsistencies. Read Deuteronomy 4:23, Exodus 25:18, Exodus 25:19, and Exodus 25:20. It even tells you the proper way to make some graven images. The Bible has very little or no credibility. It contains so many errors and harmful teachings that it makes you wonder where God went to school. It is a collection of books written by many people, edited by many others, and all over a span of many centuries in an ignorant, superstitious, and cruel culture and age.

“We have created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf…has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose. ” – Pope Francis

What’s known today as Christianity was invented by Jesus’s enemies Paul, Constantine, and the council of Nicaea. Paul never met Jesus in the flesh. Paul was not one of Jesus’s original twelve disciples and was never recognised as a true disciple by the 12 disciples or by Jesus. Paul’s early life was marked by brutal violence, and the relentless persecution of early Christians. Paul was openly hostile to early Christians, killing and persecuting many of the followers of the gospel.

Christianity started as a direct consequence of a personal conflict between Paul and the leader of a Jewish sect. Paul wins. Jesus loses. Paul’s Christianity has very little to do with the religion of the true Jesus. The messages of Jesus and Paul were fundamentally different. The New Testament was written and assembled to fulfil Paul’s Roman agenda, not that of the true Jesus. Paul invented Christianity precisely to serve the needs of the Emperor, such as by saying (Romans 13:1-7) that people are obligated to follow the laws which the Emperor commands, and not the laws which God commands.

The original disciples of Jesus were all Jewish, and their primary language of communication was Aramaic/Hebrew. But the New Testament was written in Greek, not Aramaic. The earlier gospels were outlawed, gathered up, and burned at the command of Emperor Constantine in 325 A.D. in order to protect his political position. Four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) were selected to remain from over 60 that were in use at the time. But Mark and Luke were not even apostles or eyewitnesses to the events they were writing about. And authors of Matthew and Luke copied (97%) of Mark’s gospel or drew upon common source material. Emperor Constantine killed his wife, son, and many others but the Church still made him a saint.

The gospels were spread orally before they were written out. The oldest known fragment we have from the New Testament dated to around 125 A.D is Papyrus 52 (P52), a tiny section of John’s gospel that contains part of only seven lines (around 40 words) in Greek. The next oldest manuscripts come from the latter part of the second century. The Codex Sinaiticus was written around 350 A.D. And the manuscripts are different from one another. The sources for the gospels were other peoples’ stories and writings that were told and retold and changed over time. The original manuscripts of the New Testament books were lost or destroyed a long time ago. Many things changed during those years of oral tradition that started with Aramaic and/or Hebrew and ended up in Greek.

There are 66 books of the Bible (39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament) written by at least 39 authors over a number of centuries. Some contain 81-88 books. Different sects included different Scriptures in their Bibles. God did not write the bible. Just a group of men sat down and decided which books would be included and which wouldn’t. None of the authors were Enlightened/Self-realised beings. Jesus had no role in writing the New Testament or the Bible. The Bible as we know it did not exist for the first 350 years.

The Gospels have been revised, edited, or tampered with by the Church to suit their own purposes and do not reflect the originals. There are verses that exist today that were not part of the original text. The story of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-8:11) is a late addition. The ending of Mark (the resurrection passages) is a late addition. God has NOT protected the Bible from changes.

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity was not an original Christian belief. In the New International Version (NIV), 1 John 5:7-8 correctly and more concisely reads, “For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

The New International Version has now removed more than 64000 words or over 40 complete verses, including Matthew 18:11, Acts 8:37, John 5:7, John 8:1-8:11, Mark 16:9-20 (all 12 verses), because these verses should not have been in the KJV (translated in 1611 A.D.) Bible to begin with. These verses were added later by scribes and not found in the oldest and most reliable manuscripts. Even the name Jesus (Iésous) does not exist in the earliest manuscript of the NT and the oldest Bible, Codex Sinaiticus. The name Jesus does not appear in the Greek text prior to the 4th century. It is a late addition.

The Church admits that, “the earliest of the extant manuscripts [of the New Testament], it is true, do not date back beyond the middle of the fourth century AD” (Catholic Encyclopedia, op. cit., pp. 656-7).

Historical researchers find no evidence for Jesus outside the bible. They say he is a mythical character invented by Romans.

The Bible says (John 21:25) “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.” And yet, there is no historical evidence of his supposed existence in 126 historical texts written in the first to third centuries. Not even by the second century Christian father Athenagoras. Not a single word Jesus (or Ἰησοῦς or Ἰησοῦν, as he would have written).

“What sorts of things do pagan authors from the time of Jesus have to say about him? Nothing. As odd as it may seem, there is no mention of Jesus at all by any of his pagan contemporaries. There are no birth records, no trial transcripts, no death certificates; there are no expressions of interest, no heated slanders, no passing references – nothing. In fact, if we broaden our field of concern to the years after his death – even if we include the entire first century of the Common Era – there is not so much as a solitary reference to Jesus in any non-Christian, non-Jewish source of any kind. I should stress that we do have a large number of documents from the time – the writings of poets, philosophers, historians, scientists, and government officials, for example, not to mention the large collection of surviving inscriptions on stone and private letters and legal documents on papyrus. In none of this vast array of surviving writings is Jesus’ name ever so much as mentioned.”– Bart Ehrman

Paul only describes his “Imaginary Jesus.” Paul seems unaware of any detail of Jesus of Nazareth’s life as depicted in the gospels.

The Account of Josephus (just 127 words) has actually been proven to be a fraud. The Account of Tacitus is of little value. The passage states “the fire agitators were followers of “Christus” who “was put to death as a criminal by the procurator Pontius Pilate.” It makes no direct mention of “Jesus of Nazareth,” nor does it refer to his life and the supernatural events. Both these authors were born after Jesus died. The term “Christus” or χρηστὸς does not equate to ‘Jesus Christ’ in English. It has been used to describe philosophers, priests, deities, oligarchs, heroes, and others.

The Bible is not the ‘word of God,’ but a fabricated work of fiction filled with mostly plagiarised myths and fables taken from other older philosophies and it has been thoroughly debunked in this 21st century. One must always question the credibility of these texts.

“The idol is a support for the neophyte. It is a prop of his spiritual childhood. A form or image is necessary for worship in the beginning. It is not possible for all to fix the mind on the Absolute or the Infinite. A concrete form is necessary for the vast majority for practicing concentration. Idols are not the idle fancies of sculptors, but shining channels through which the heart of the devotee flows towards God. Though the image is worshipped, the devotee feels the presence of the Lord in it and pours out his devotion unto it. The idol remains an idol, but the worship goes to the Lord. To a devotee, the image is a mass of Chaitanya or consciousness. He draws inspiration from the image. The image guides him. It talks to him. It assumes human form to help him in a variety of ways. The image of Lord Siva in the temple at Madurai in South India helped the fuel-cutter and the old woman. The image in the temple at Tirupati assumed human form and gave witness in the court to help His devotees. There are marvels and mysteries. Only the devotees understand these. Idol worship is not peculiar to Hinduism. The Christians worship the Cross. They have the image of the Cross in their mind. The Mohammedans keep the image of the Kaaba stone when they kneel and do prayers. The mental image also is a form of idol. The difference is not one in kind, but only one of degree. All worshippers, however intellectual they may be, generate a form in the mind and make the mind dwell on that image. Everyone is an idol worshipper. Pictures and drawings are only a form of Pratima. A gross mind needs a concrete symbol as a prop or Alambana; a subtle mind requires an abstract symbol. Even a Vedantin has the symbol OM for fixing the wandering mind. It is not only pictures or images in stone and wood that are idols. Dialectics and leaders also become idols. So, why condemn idolatry?” – Swami Sivananda (1887 – 1963)

Disease/ CHAPTER 91

“Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.” – Buddha

Every action produces consequence and karma whether we intend it or not. This effect arises because everything is interconnected. Everything in our mundane lives, including disease, is due to karma. People tend to think of disease and suffering as negative things due to fear. However, it is only meant to teach an important karmic lesson that they have not been able to learn in the absence of disease.

It is only by living through it that one can identify the lesson inherent in a physical ailment or disease. The way to discover the karmic lessons inherent to a disease or any negative event is to embrace the event as containing a valuable lesson and as an opportunity to advance oneself. As you change your relationship with it and listen internally for the answers, the event then readily reveals the karmic lesson to you.

True healing must address the spirit-soul and not just the physical manifestation. In other words, it must start at the root cause (lifetimes of negative emotions and negative thoughts) and progress downward into the physical body.

Thoughts influence the physical body. Negative thoughts release cortisol and adrenaline, which bring down the immune system. Positive thinking releases neurotransmitters and hormones which help to stabilise the immune system. Positive thinking and positive affirmations are important to your health and fitness, and in all aspects of your life.

Allopathic medicine is just for making an adjustment to the physical manifestation (physical body’s structure). But true spiritual healing addresses the root cause (negative emotions and negative thoughts) along with the physical symptoms. If the root cause is not rectified, then the physical symptoms will return even if they have been eliminated once. This process is repeated until the karmic lesson is learned by other means or by recurrence of the disease. True healing occurs only when the karmic lesson is learned.

Some diseases are rooted in the group/collective (societal, racial, planetary, etc.) karma and cannot presently be resolved on an individual basis. There are therapies (spiritual and otherwise) that can ameliorate some of the symptoms of the disease, but they do not cure the disease. Here is the story of Gregg Braden, whose cancerous tumour healed in 3 minutes:

“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” – Hippocrates

Co-creators/ CHAPTER 92

“A Chinese farmer has a stallion. One day the stallion runs away. The village people come to him and say, “Ah, such bad luck!” The farmer shrugs. “Good luck, bad luck, who knows?”

A few days later the stallion returns with three mares. The village people come to him and say, “Ah, such good luck!” The farmer shrugs. “Good luck, bad luck, who knows?”

The next week, the farmer’s son breaks his leg taming the wild mares. The village people come to him and say, “Ah, such bad luck!” The farmer shrugs. “Good luck, bad luck, who knows?”

A month later, the Chinese army comes and demands all the young men of soldier age. The farmer’s son does not have to go because of his leg. The village people come to him and say, “Ah, such good luck!” The farmer shrugs. “Good luck, bad luck, who knows?”

And so it goes…” – Chinese Proverb

We, and our actions, are a part of the flow. We are the enacting of the Divine “Will”. As divine co-creators, we have the opportunity and responsibility to do this consciously and wilfully.

“The problems we face, did not come down from the heavens. They are made, they are made by bad human decisions, and good human decisions can change them.” – Bernie Sanders

Consciously or unconsciously, you are co-creating your life. You are not a witnessing robot. You’re either a co-creator or a co-destroyer. Be a co-creator. You (falseʽIʼ/false self) are not the Doer! But there is a doer; it is your Atman-self and ultimately the infinite Brahman. Brahman-Self includes EVERY thing—who, what, when, where, and why—simultaneously. This is the multi-dimensionally infinite Unity of BEing.

It’s like being in a river. If we try to swim upriver, then we very quickly exhaust ourselves. If we stand our ground and refuse to be moved by the flow of current, then we must always battle against the force of that current. This means a constant struggle to maintain our stasis. Or we can let go and be carried along by the current. This is easier, but there’s no telling what eddies we might be carried into or what submerged branches we’ll be snagged by or which beaches we’ll be grounded upon. Or, we can actively swim with the current and navigate our way along the river’s course very rapidly to its mouth. It’s this final approach that the practice of true spirituality enables.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)

PA: Blah, blah, blah. You are the perceiver of blah, blah, blah.

HB: Why do you reduce everything to a perceiver? You are not a witnessing robot. You are a co-creator.

“The bodies are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All the beings are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All experience is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All objects of experiences are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All delusions… are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All realisation is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All yoga is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All objects of yoga are, indeed, of the nature of the Self.” – Ribhu Gita (Ch.10, v.27)

Everything that occurs, every action and every manifestation of energy or force whatsoever, is a manifestation of the Divine/Brahman Will. The evolution of our Universe and life on Earth is a manifestation of the Divine Will. When the sun shines, it does so because there is a Divine Will. When a substance reacts with oxygen, it does so because there is a Divine Will. Even when a thought is formed within our minds, it is a Divine Will.

PA: Whatever you can perceive is not you. You cannot be that which you perceive. The observer must be prior to what is observed.

HB: This is duality. I perceive a beautiful bird. The bird also perceives its environment in its own unique way. Brahman is within me and also within that bird. If I am Brahman, then I am also what I perceive. The seer, the seen, and the sight are Brahman only. All (seer and seen) are manifestations of the same Brahman.

PA: Can the perceiver be perceived? Can the seer be seen?

HB: You are too much in the mind. The heart doesn’t ask these nondoodle quackery questions.

You cannot perceive the perceiver because all awareness is encompassed by the infinite Brahman Awareness. You can only merge with Brahman. You cannot go beyond it.

Brahman Awareness/Consciousness is infinite. All awareness is encompassed by the Brahman Awareness. There is not any type of awareness that is not an aspect of the Brahman Awareness. It is the Brahman Awareness which is aware through every human being and everything (trees, rocks, electrons, galaxies, asteroids and so on) that exists and even in absolute vacuum. Furthermore, the Brahman Awareness is eternal. Brahman is simultaneously and non-sequentially aware as the infinite number of discrete awareness’s that manifest throughout the temporal realm.

PA: You are prior to that.
HB: Prior implies a beginning. But Brahman/Self is eternal, meaning without beginning or end and an infinite cycle.

 

 

Magic/Magick/ CHAPTER 93

“Let noble thoughts come towards us from all over the world.” – Veda

“Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.” – Bruce Lee

True philosophy, religion, science, spirituality, mysticism, and Maha siddhis/miracles/magick/magic (not tricks) are not separate units, but an integral part of the one true universal religion/spirituality. There is only one universal religion/ spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness.

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.” – Albert Einstein

Any religion/spirituality/philosophy/science that admires truth, that strives to know Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness, must be brave enough to accommodate Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self, the nature of an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept, and miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis).

The greatest problem of humanity is that they don’t yet know anything of deep meditation and the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self.

People who write about religion/spirituality are generally not Enlightened, so they are limited to their opinions and the opinions of the society to which they belong. Some of them have reduced thousands of years of sacred ancient teachings into gibberish.

“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” – Blaise Pascal

There is a lot of anti-Enlightenment, anti-science, anti-miraculous abilities people in religious and spiritual communities. Science is not consumerism. What these people have in common is they have lost a sense of the wonder and beauty of the Universe. In other words, their hearts are closed.

Universal religion is divided into two parts: an exoteric and an esoteric part. Exoteric knowledge is the knowledge for the masses that is well-known or public (various religions and their scriptures), and esoteric knowledge is the “Secret Doctrine,” reserved for the few elect. Exoteric knowledge is the “milk for babes,” whereas esoteric is the “strong meat for men.”

Esoteric knowledge is the highest spiritual knowledge existing on our planet. It has been passed down the centuries from one Siddha/Adept and initiate to another and kept a secret by the initiates of the inner circles. The true understanding of esoteric knowledge depends on the spiritual evolution/maturity of the individual.

The term “esoteric knowledge” has also been hijacked by some to mean all kinds of New Age woo.

The ancient Egyptians had no word for religion. Religion as we know it today did not exist, only magic. Magic is not black magic. It’s like calling Quantum as black Quantum or Advaita as black Advaita. Good intention is white magic, and bad intention is black magic. There is a lot of truth hidden in magic.

“Every intentional (willed) act is a Magical Act.” – Aleister Crowley

Fanatical religions have been hijacked, twisted, and distorted by false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing preaching hate, bigotry, racism, guilt, and fear. Fanatical religions have used war, violence, propaganda, scaremongering, serious prejudice, and terrorism to convert billions of people against their will. This is black magic.

There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness. Magic is just another term for spirituality just like metaphysics, Advaita, wicca, Taoism, occultism, and so on. There is the real magic/magick and there is the pseudo-magic/magick like real Advaita and pseudo/Neo-Advaita.

Technology can be used for both good and evil purposes. Social media can be used for good or evil. In the same way, magick/magic can be used for good or evil. But magick/magic itself is neutral. Fanatical religions in their current form can be classed as black magic.

“The exercise of magical power is the exercise of natural powers, but superior to the ordinary functions of Nature. A miracle is not a violation of the laws of Nature, except for ignorant people. Magic is but a science, a profound knowledge of the Occult forces in Nature, and of the laws governing the visible or the invisible world. Spiritualism in the hands of an adept becomes Magic, for he is learned in the art of blending together the laws of the Universe, without breaking any of them and thereby violating Nature.” – H. P. Blavatsky

“The whole and sole object of all true Magical and Mystical training is to become free from every kind of limitation.” – Aleister Crowley

“Magic, as a science, is the knowledge of these principles, and of the way by which the omniscience and omnipotence of the spirit and its control over nature’s forces may be acquired by the individual while still in the body. Magic, as an art, is the application of this knowledge in practice.” – H.P. Blavatsky

“Magick is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will.” – Aleister Crowley

“Indubitably, magic is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgment and practice than in any other branch of physics.” – Aleister Crowley

“Magic has power to experience and fathom things which are inaccessible to human reason. For magic is a great secret wisdom, just as reason is a great public folly.” – Paracelsus

Some Hindus consider Jesus as an Avatar. Some Buddhists consider Jesus as a Buddha. For magicians, Jesus was an Adept.

Archaeologists have found a bowl, dating to the 2nd century B.C., describes Christ as an occult “magician”. The engraving on the bowl reads, “DIA CHRSTOU O GOISTAIS,” which mean either, “by Christ the magician” or, “the magician by Christ.”

“Science is always discovering odd scraps of magical wisdom and making a tremendous fuss about its cleverness.” – Aleister Crowley

“The art of divine magic consists in the ability to perceive the essence of things in the light of nature (astral light), and by using the soul-powers of the spirit to produce material things from the unseen Universe, and in such operations the Above and the Below must be brought together and made to act harmoniously. The spirit of Nature (astral light) is a unity, creating and forming everything, and acting through the instrumentality of man it may produce wonderful things. Such are accomplished, if you learn to know yourself.” – Quoted in Dr. Hartman’s “Paracelsus.”

Q&A
Q: Can you comment on the following: “Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” – Matthew 21:18 – 22
A: If it is true, it is black magic. Don’t play with black magic. YOU WILL PAY FOR IT. No one is exempt from this, not even an Avatar. One feature of the Law of Cause and Effect is that what we put forth, returns to us. Each specific causation produces a specific effect which rebounds to its causer.

“It is better to do nothing than to do what is wrong. For whatever you do, you do to yourself.” – Buddha

Q: Pharaoh’s magicians were able to perform miracles (“Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers, and they, the magicians of Egypt, also did the same by their secret arts.” – Exodus 7:11; “And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments” – Exodus 7:22; “And the magicians did so with their enchantments…” – Exodus 8:7). How were the Egyptians able to perform those same miracles?
A: You mean how were the Jews (Moses, Jesus…) able to perform those same miracles? Ancient Egypt was one of the earliest and longest-lived civilisations. Moses was the adopted son of ancient Egyptian Pharaoh’s daughter. Moses was taught by the great ancient Egyptians Adepts. Ancient Egyptians Adepts (magicians) and the Indian Siddhas/Avatars were the original discoverers of exoteric and esoteric knowledge and considered themselves Gods.

“Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was mighty in his words and deeds.” – Acts 7:22

Abrahamic religions owe much to the Ancient Egyptians. If it wasn’t for ancient Egyptians and ancient Indian Avatars, there would be no Christianity. Many aspects of Christianity—holidays (Halloween, Christmas, Easter), rituals, ceremonies, and beliefs—have their roots in paganism. Even some teachings of Jesus have origins in paganism. There are many similarities between Mithraism and Christianity. Much of the stories of the gospels are of Pagan origin. The Christian cross is a pagan symbol that was “Christianized”.

“…It (the cross) goes back to a very remote period of human civilization.” – Catholic Encyclopedia

“Crosses, moreover, we Christians neither venerate nor wish for. You indeed who consecrate gods of wood venerate wooden crosses, perhaps as parts of your gods. For your very standards, as well as your banners, and flags of your camps, what are they but crosses gilded and adorned? Your victorious trophies not only imitate the appearance of a simple cross, but also that of a man affixed to it.” – Tertullian

It’s well-documented that classical Greek thinkers travelled to what we now call Egypt to expand their knowledge.

“Egypt was the cradle of mathematics.” – Aristotle

“If I could travel back into time……this is the place I would visit. The Library of Alexandria at its height, 2000 years ago.” – Carl Sagan

“But after the Dark Ages, it was by and large…the rediscovery of the works of these scholars done here…that made the Renaissance possible…and thereby powerfully influenced our own culture. When, in the 15th century, Europe was at last ready…to awaken from its long sleep…it picked up some of the tools, the books and the concepts…laid down here more than a thousand years before.” – Carl Sagan

Most Christians are conditioned by biblical myths to hate/fear ancient Egyptians and magic. Archaeologists now know the Egyptian monuments and tombs were not built by slaves but by loyal workers. The Biblical Exodus story is fiction. No Egyptian records mention slaves known as Hebrews.

More people have been killed in the name of fanatical religions than any other cause in the history of the world. Some of the most evil and dangerous people alive today are in fanatical religions masquerading as good. Those who run the world (mostly American Billionaires) do not belong to any occult organizations such as Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Goldern dawn, etc. They don’t know anything about magick, but few of them are embodiments of Satan/Evil.

Magic cannot be separated from mysticism, because they are two sides of the same coin. The Truth never changes. It changes YOU!

Faith and conviction/ CHAPTER 94

“On a long journey of human life, faith is the best of companions; it is the best refreshment on the journey; and it is the greatest property.” – Buddha

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.” – Buddha

“Neither in this world nor elsewhere is there any happiness in store for him who always doubts.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)

Faith has many levels and degrees. Faith, to begin with, is an attitude of basic trust in the Universal Self, and it is not the same thing as blind belief.

Today, doubt and mind-projection heavily outweigh the human psyche. These are days of doubt, depression, worry, fear, division, and suffering.

Life depends on faith. Doubt has no end. An academic doubt assists learning, but chronic doubt only leads to confusion and weakness. Chronic doubting is self-destructive. Weak faith = self-doubt.

Do not put your faith in the words of others that are now leading many astray. Put your confidence in your Divine self and not in the minds of others.

How do you think the placebo effect works? It is your faith.

Faith in your ultimate self = Faith in Divine/Brahman-Self.

Have faith in your own Atman and ultimately in Brahman-Self. Believe in yourself. Develop faith in your true self. Faith, in one sense, is a feeling you discover within yourself that you are united to omnipotent power, to Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. Conviction is a sense of certainty about your ability to accomplish what you intend to do. Your faith can heal you. Your faith can save you. With faith, you can do the impossible. If you have faith in your ultimate/divine self, you can do what an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept can do. Nothing will be impossible for you.

“What I hate is ignorance, smallness of imagination, the eye that sees no farther than its own lashes. All things are possible. Who you are is limited only by who you think you are.” – Egyptian Book of the Dead

“You must overcome the mental limits you set for yourself. Stop limiting yourself. You can do anything if you tap into the divine energy source.” – Swami Premananda

An Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept is a human being at-one-with Brahman who embodies faith and conviction on the highest conceivable level. Merge with his/her consciousness and embody his/her faith, and you can do what he/she can do. Embody the laws of the Universe. You can perform the same miracles (Maha siddhis) any human beings ever performed or will ever perform.

Find out your true ultimate self, and that will be the end of all doubts about the nature of an Avatar and miraculous abilities.

“One can become whatever one wants to be, if one constantly contemplates on the object of desire with faith.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 17.03)

“Anyone who has faith in me (Universal Self) will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these.” – John 14:12

“If only man becomes aware of his potentiality, there is nothing impossible for him.” – Sai Baba

“Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20

“You have, each one, the tremendous Shakthi (Power) of the Atman in you. Some are able to draw upon it; others just know it is there; others are unaware of the methods of tapping it or even of its existence. It all comes in time, through steady saadhana (practice).” – Sai Baba

“You too can become Divine; I have nothing that you too do not possess. It is latent in you, it is patent and potent here; that is the only difference!” – Sai Baba

“Do not have contact with persons who sow the seeds of fear or doubt.” – Sai Baba

With faith, you can overcome obstacles much more easily. Absolute faith and perfect conviction are qualities of those who are at-one-with Brahman. With absolute faith and perfect conviction, you can perform all the miracles.

Develop faith in yourself. Absolute faith is so incredibly powerful. Imagine faith and conviction on the highest conceivable level. BE the embodiment of absolute faith and perfect conviction.

If you embody faith and conviction on the highest conceivable level, with a simple intention you can manifest vibhuti or talismans. If you cannot, you are only a theorist or still on the way to the shore of eternity.

Placebo effect/ CHAPTER 95

“My skill as a surgeon had no benefit on these patients. The entire benefit of surgery for osteoarthritis of the knee was the placebo effect.” – Dr. Bruce Moseley

The placebo effect is real and is proof that magick is real. The placebo effect is magick in action. The placebo effect is the belief that a dummy pill can heal you to heal yourself. If you believe a talisman or sacred ash (vibhuti) can heal you, it is called a spiritual healing. If you believe you can heal yourself, it is self-healing. If you believe God can heal you, it is faith-healing. But it is all just self-healing. The healing mechanism is the same. The effectiveness of healing depends upon where you are on the path to Universal Self (spiritual maturity/evolution). Healing is a form of consciousness over matter. It is just one of the many miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis).

Do your own research diligently. It might save you one day:
http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa013259

The modern theory that we will be able to someday come up with a universal cure for disease (such as the current hopes for genetic research) is a delusion. This is simply not the way the Universe works—at the level of the physical realm, a universal curative would violate the universal laws of variety and karma.

“Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organisations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.” – Linus Pauling, PhD (two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry)

In order for true and permanent healing to occur, the patient must take responsibility to restore the Elemental balance and resolve the issues which caused the imbalance in the first place, and most are not interested in doing this.

From a spiritual perspective, the physical body is the result of the spirit (consciousness). In other words, all of the physiological functions are caused by the consciousness. For example, neurotransmitters, modulators, and hormones are caused by emotions and thoughts which occur within the consciousness of the individual. You can change your biological system within certain limits by changing your state of consciousness.

Understanding the science of the placebo effect is key to understanding something about the relationship between matter and spirit/consciousness.

Spiritual initiation by the Guru (Guru diksha) is just hypnotic suggestion (planting the seed). For some people, that’s all it takes because they are already very advanced souls but the process is ineffective for most people.

Avatars can perform the miracles of healing by transmuting the matter but it’s not allowed in most cases (99.99999%).

 

Living without food and water/ CHAPTER 96

Tardigrades (Water bears) can survive tremendous heat (as high as 357 degrees Fahrenheit) and cold (as low as -457 degrees Fahrenheit), radiation (5,700 grays of radiation, when 10–20 grays would kill humans and most other animals), and vacuum. Boil them, freeze them, dry them, expose them to radiation, and they’re so resilient they’ll still be alive 200 years later.

Tardigrades can go without food or water for over 120 YEARS and even survive in space. Olm can survive for up to 10 years without food.

Everything is a miracle of Brahman, but there is another form of miracle within miracle, the miraculous abilities (siddhis) of human beings.

Prahlad Jani (born 1929) is an Indian hermit. He claims that he left his home at the age of 7 searching for spiritual mystery, and had a spiritual experience at age 11. Ever since that experience, he claims to have lived without food and water since 1940 for over 70 years now. Since the 1970s, Mr. Jani lived as a hermit in a cave in the rainforest, spending most of his time meditating.

Prahlad Jani was observed and tested for 15 days in 2010 by Sudhir Shah, a neurologist at the Sterling Hospitals, and a team of 35 researchers from the Indian Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS), as well as other organisations. The director of DIPAS said that the results of the observations could “tremendously benefit mankind,” as well as “soldiers, victims of calamities, and astronauts,” all of whom may have to survive without food or water for long spells.

Doctors had prepared a special glass-walled room equipped with CCTV cameras to monitor Mr. Jani for 15 days. The toilet was sealed to test his claim that he had no need to urinate or defecate.

The only fluid allowed was a small amount of water (100 millilitres), to use as mouthwash. This was collected and measured in a beaker when he spat it out, to make sure that none had been drunk.

Doctors say that he passed no urine or stool during the observation. Scans revealed some urine accumulation in his bladder, but this seemed to be reabsorbed by the body because it was never passed.

Doctors announced that despite apparently living on thin air for two weeks, the holy man was healthier than someone half his age. Doctors were completely surprised at this miracle. Based on Mr. Jani’s reported levels of leptin and ghrelin, two appetite-related hormones, DRDO researchers posited that Mr. Jani may be demonstrating an extreme form of adaptation to starvation and water restriction. Blood tests, hormone profiles, MRIs, and angiographs (imaging tests of the blood vessels) all pointed to the conclusion that Mr. Jani had not needed to eat, drink, or use the toilet once.

Extraordinary evidence for extraordinary claims do exist if you have eyes that can see and ears that can hear. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed, because they know; they have already discovered it within themselves.

Prahlad Jani’s body went through a biological transformation as a result of advanced meditation in a completely natural environment. His practices have miraculously transformed the biological functioning of his body, which no longer needs energy and sustenance from external material sources.

It is more than hibernation. Nature has many unknown secrets. If tardigrades can survive without food and water for 120 years, the same principle can apply to consciously evolved human beings.

It is possible for human beings to live without food and water, but not by starvation, ONLY by miraculous faculties (siddhis). All the miraculous faculties are the natural powers inherent to humanity. If you are in the mind and try this, you will starve to death. If you have the divine connection, you have access to all the secrets of nature.

For those who know, no proof is necessary. For most sceptics, no proof is possible.

The rationalists who attack this holy man are deluded.

Modern-day sceptics are just like the conspiracy theorists. They don’t understand science or spirituality properly. They are not interested in truth. A little intellectual knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Death and resurrection/ CHAPTER 97

The wood frog of North America has the ability to freeze itself to death, remain alive, and miraculously resurrect. For two or three months, the frogsicle has no heartbeat, no brain activity, no breath, and as much as 65% of the water in its body gradually turns into ice with its body temperature ranging between -1°C and -6°C. Technically, it is dead.

When the weather grows warmer in the spring, it thaws itself and kick-starts its brain and heart within a few hours.

Tibetan monks and Indian fakir/yogis have the ability to stop their own heart for weeks and return to life. It has been scientifically verified with an eight-channel electroencephalograph and various other instruments. They have even been buried alive or submerged under water without harm.

According to an 1880 report in the London Telegraph, a man was buried “in a condition of apparent death” for 40 days and survived. No tricks or tomfoolery were involved.
http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/featured/amazing-story-of-man-survived-being-buried-40-days/3984#JwDSquExDpYvqJIG.99

Is it a violation of a law of nature? No, it is also part of nature. The Universe is not a machine, and laws of nature or habits of nature are not fixed. Scientists should focus their research on miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) that can benefit the greatest number of people.

With advanced meditation, human beings are able to stop breathing for days and still survive.

Superhuman abilities (Maha siddhis) are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what the unenlightened people know about nature.

Scientists can accept the supernatural abilities of animals but do not want to accept the supernatural abilities of human beings. They call them tricks and try to disprove them. Modern-day “science” is just another kind of belief system with dogmatism, conditioning, fundamentalism and cognitive dissonance.

Prolonging life/ physical immortality/ CHAPTER 98

Jellyfish and lobsters are considered biologically immortal. They don’t age and will never die unless they are killed.

According to the official records Taoist master Li Ching-Yuen lived for 256 years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Ching-Yuen

Top 10 Longest-Living Creatures:

Flatworm
If you cut a flatworm in half, it will regenerate to become two worms.

Marine animal Hydractinia echinata
If you cut off the head of the Hydractinia echinata it doesn’t die. Instead, it regrows a head within a few days.

Some types of starfish can regrow a whole body from a single arm.

Many animals can regenerate body parts after amputation or injury—a feat we humans are sadly less capable of doing. As adults, humans can regenerate some organs, such as the liver.

With advanced meditation, it is possible for human beings to stop the aging process and extend the lifespan by 500-plus years.

Ultimately, physical immortality (billions of years or more) is possible, but it becomes unimportant.

Know your Atman-self and you shall know the secrets of the Universe and Brahman.

Manifestation/ Materialisation/ CHAPTER 99

“Crazy Horse dreamed and went into the world where there is nothing but the spirits of all things. That is the real world that is behind this one, and everything we see here is something like a shadow from that one.” – Black Elk (Native American)

There is a consciousness component (spirit) to every natural physical form (shadow) in nature. The physical form is condensed spirit. Physical form of a tree is the condensed spirit of the tree. Physical form of planet Earth is the condensed spirit of planet Earth, and so on. The infinite physical Universe is condensed Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness. The visible physical Universe is a manifestation of Brahman itself.

Perceive the formless behind the forms in the Universe. The formless and the form are but the two poles of the same thing, like cold and hot.

I am hidden yet obvious everywhere. I am bodiless yet embodied in everything. Know yourself as spirit and perceive the spirit behind matter, and you shall find me.

In Christianity, stigmata refer to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus reproduced in a human body. It is a manifestation/ materialisation of blood corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus by the stigmatics on their limbs and body, or even on a statue. A stigmatic is an individual bearing stigmata, someone that bears the crucifixion wounds of Jesus. It is a form of consciousness over matter, law of attraction, embodiment of the contemplated pain (conscious or unconscious deep self-hypnosis). The appearance of stigmata varies greatly depending on the psyche of the stigmatics. The equivalent of stigmata in Hinduism is the materialisation of sacred ash (vibhuti), talismans, Amrita…

Scientific experiments with posthypnotic suggestion have shown that strong suggestion can produce blisters, burns, and other similar wounds on the human body.

The most famous stigmatic is Saint Francis of Assisi (died 1226), followed by Saint Padre Pio (died 1968). St. Francis of Assisi also performed many miracles (Maha siddhis). In the case of Padre Pio, his hands bled lightly but almost continually, and produced approximately a glassful of blood and water daily. For more than fifty years, Padre Pio reported stigmata, which were studied by several 20 th-century physicians.

There have been at least 330 recorded cases of persons receiving the stigmata. Most of these cases are genuine, but only about 60 of those have been made saints. Most of the stigmatics experience cruel rejection and suspicion by people. There is plenty of scientific research by Edward Harrison and others to prove that the phenomenon of stigmata is genuine, but scientists cannot explain it.

Stigmata is often associated with practice of asceticism (living with minimal (or no) food or water for long periods of time). At the time of manifestation of stigmata, they fall into ecstatic trances and are overwhelmed with emotions.

This is what you should focus on if you want to understand the connection between matter and spirit, not the quantum double-slit experiment (pseudoscience).

Stigmata are an important phenomenon if you want to understand the nature of consciousness, miraculous abilities and most importantly how Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness became the infinite physical Universe.

“I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know his thoughts. The rest are details.” – Albert Einstein

You will get a glimpse of how Brahman became the infinite physical Universe (or how God created this Universe, as Einstein puts it) when you merge with the Universal Consciousness (enter the eternal realm) and create (materialise) a talisman out of nothing (thin air) at will. Until then, don’t speculate with your mind.

There are a few modern-day sages with the ability to materialise talismans at will. But most of them wish to remain anonymous. There are anti-spiritual and anti-Hindu groups that have been trying to dismantle the Vedic Tradition through various methods. There is an organised and well-funded conspiracy by Christian groups to defame Indian gurus.

Sathya Sai Baba was most famous for these miracles. Sathya Sai Baba’s miracles are unique, unprecedented, and unparalleled. All the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba are baseless and are false. Just fake news. As Osho said, “Only idiots are not controversial.”

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.” – Mark Twain

From the beginning of his first term in office, President Obama has been forced to endure racism, hatred, and malicious lies and rumours like no other American president. The magnitude, intensity, and obsession of hatred are unprecedented in the history of politics. Expect the same if you are a modern-day Avatar.

Sathya Sai Baba’s miracles can be reproduced by anyone who has reached Enlightenment/Self-realisation. Swami kaleshwar (1973-2012) was able to demonstrate all the miracles performed by Sathya Sai Baba. Swami Vishwananda can and does perform some of these miracles too. And there are others.

Swami Vishwananda regularly has stigmata on his body during Easter. He also materialises vibhuti and talismans from thin air. These miracles are performed spontaneously to inspire the few who are pure in heart. Swami Vishwananda has had this ability since he was a teenage kid.

Science should turn around and research this kind of phenomenon instead of wasting billions of dollars on meaningless theories and dangerous technologies for those who rule the world.

Materialisation doesn’t mean you can materialise petty things. Don’t misunderstand me.

The Lingodhbhava (materialisation of Linga (oval shape structure resembling the whole Universe)) is a symbolic miracle of how Brahman became the infinite physical Universe (or how God created this Universe, as Einstein puts it).

Most people require seven or eight hours of sleep to function optimally. But giraffes sleep only 1.9 hours a day in five- to ten-minute sessions.

Alternative Sleep Cycles: You Don’t Really Need 6-8 Hours!

There is a man who claims he hasn’t slept for more than 33 years. Thai Ngoc (born 1942) hasn’t slept since 1973 (from age 31). It doesn’t affect his physical or mental health, according to the doctors. He is mentally sound and has been known to carry two 50-kilogram bags of pig feed down a four-kilometre road every day. Thai uses his additional evening hours to do extra farm work. http://www.world-of-lucid-dreaming.com/the-man-who-never-slept.html

Natural phenomena always act according to the laws of nature. According to laws of nature, antibiotics are chemicals that kill bacteria. Also according to laws of nature, bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Many strains of bacteria have evolved resistance to antibiotics. Therefore, the laws of nature are not absolutely fixed. It is the consciousness of bacteria that is the driving force of bacterial evolution. Bacterial evolution is proof that a law of nature has been violated and still operates according to the laws of nature. In the same way, super human abilities (siddhis) are the result of conscious evolution of the individual consciousness. The laws of nature are not absolutely fixed and dead. They are alive and BEINGS.

Nothing happens out of the ordinary, but it doesn’t mean that the Universe is a machine. The Universe is a living Being. True miracles (Maha siddhis) are not against the laws of nature. You do not understand the laws of nature as habits of nature.

“Nothing occurs contrary to nature except the impossible, and that never occurs.” – Galileo Galilei

What is within nature is also within you. What is within you is also within nature. Nature is the real key. Look within yourself and deep within nature simultaneously. Evolve consciously and you will discover the secret of miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis).

Electric shield/ CHAPTER 101

The electric eel is a fish that produces electricity at will. It can generate an electrical charge of up to 600 volts in order to stun prey and keep predators at bay. This amount of energy is enough to stun or kill a horse.

Six-Foot Electric Eel

Human conductor Slavisa Pajkic has scientists scratching their heads because he can withstand 20,000 volts without feeling a thing. He can be an insulator, conductor, accumulator, and heater. He can light up a light bulb, cook a sausage, and even set alcohol-soaked cloth ablaze by using energy stored in his body. Slavisa’s abilities are real, and in the meantime he’s using them to help people suffering from migraine, sinus, and back problems. He holds two Guinness World Records, for withstanding 20,000 V and being the quickest to heat up a cup of water to 97 degrees Celsius, accomplished in 1 min 37 secs. (Voltages of over 50 volts can cause dangerous levels of electricity to flow through the human body. An electric chair uses about 2,000 volts.). Here are videos about Pajkic:

Raj Mohan Nair has a similar ability:

Imagine: Slavisa Pajkic vs. Mike Tyson in his prime, or mixed martial artist Jon Jones, or even a wild grizzly bear. It is the ultimate self-defence technique. It is also possible to protect yourself with invisible physical shield.

These superhuman abilities (siddhis) are real. There are some people who can do extraordinary things. Most people do not have these abilities but these abilities exist potentially in all human soul like the seed in the soil. Every human being has the same potential. These superhuman abilities (siddhis) lay dormant within all of us, waiting to be uncovered.

Unverletzbar Mirin Dajo

Swami kaleshwar (1973-2012) was one of the most remarkable Avatars of our modern times, with a divine mission to demonstrate some of the miracles (Maha Siddhis) performed by ancient and modern Avatars.

Swami Kaleshwar was a master of the 4 elements and was able to perform the miracles of materialisation of vibhuti and talismans from thin air, teleportation of talismans, transmutation of one form into another, cure the incurable, resurrect the dead, and more.

Is it a violation of a law of nature, or is it you who does not fully understand the laws of nature?

“The Divine is omnipresent. All of you are forms of the Divine. All of you are endowed with electro-magnetic energy, atomic power, heat and other forms of Energy. The magnetic energy is the most important power in man. From this magnetic energy comes electrical energy. The strength of the electrical energy is related to the strength of the magnetic energy. When the electrical energy and the magnetic energy come together, the divine Power operates. This divine Power does not come from outside. It is within human beings. Our very form is Divine.” – Sai Baba

Most disbelief in real miraculous abilities comes from Western societies—societies that have been repeatedly brainwashed by fanatical religion, half-truth science, fantasy superman movies, David Copperfield magic shows, and conspiracy theories that certain things have to be fake, and the only hope there is is hope in consumerism and government. Trust in these things and everything will turn out great.

When it comes to the real miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis), Western societies (except for a few individuals) are still living in the Stone Age.

Consciousness /intention over matter./ CHAPTER 102

“We are developing the idea that our consciousness is part of the physical world and that with our consciousness we can directly influence our world.” – Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University

What are commonly called “miracles” are acts of consciousness/intention over matter.

Consciousness over matter is real, because:
(1) Everything is connected.
(2) Everything has its own individual consciousness (Atman).
(3) When your individual consciousness connects with the individual consciousness of the other, it can communicate in subtle ways.
(4) When your individual consciousness merges with the individual consciousness of other, it becomes part of you.
(5) When you embody the essence of the other, you are that.
(6) Your hands are part of you. What do you do when you want to raise your hand? Simple intention. It is the same when you want to influence the surrounding environment or perform miracles. Of course, there are limits to what is possible.

It doesn’t work if you are still your personal self. There is a big difference between theorists and true Enlightened/Self-realised masters. There are many subtle laws you need to understand and obey. Walk the path and discover and experience it for yourself.

You cannot just free fall and imagine you can fly. Don’t take the meaning of “create your own reality” to the extreme. It doesn’t mean that, and it doesn’t work like that. Self-realised/Enlightened masters (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts) are not Superman, Batman, Ironman, or Spiderman.

Remember when someone tempted Jesus:
“If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test. ’”

Consider this research by Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory on mind over matter. The influence is claimed to be rather small but is statistically significant:
http://www.princeton.edu/~pear/

Everything is a miracle of Brahman, but there is another form of miracle within this eternal miracle—the miraculous abilities of human beings.

The immanent Brahman, by course of nature, responds to a desire/intention/wish within ItSelf. When we expand/raise our awareness and get into sync with the Universe, we open a pathway for our pure desire to be realised—we create conditions that allow its realisation. In other words, it’s not up to some separate god to deem our prayers worthy of attention. An immanent Brahman needs no prayers to know that a desire is in someone’s heart. Every desire is a part of an immanent Brahman, so how could there be any not-knowing? Or any true need of prayer other than on the part of the one praying? Prayer is entirely about the consciousness of the one doing the praying.

“…Prayer does not mean petitioning to God…Prayer must come from the heart. Prayer that is not heartfelt is utterly useless. God will accept a heart without words. But He will not accept words and prayers that do not come from the heart…” – Sai Baba

“Prayer must emanate from heart, where God resides, and not from the head where doctrines and doubts clash.” – Sai Baba

Miracles/ CHAPTER 103

Science says, “There is no such thing as a miracle. Everything that seems to be a miracle is merely a coincidence. Or everything is a miracle.” True universal spirituality is beyond science. Even the greatest scientists do not yet understand the nature of miraculous abilities. Religious people just blindly believe in miracles but they misunderstand it.

What are commonly called “miracles” are acts of Maha siddhis that use natures laws instead of violating them. They appear “miraculous” to the uninitiated only because they do not fully understand the laws of nature. All the miraculous faculties are the natural powers inherent to humanity. It is possible to consciously evolve with different miraculous abilities.

You can perform miracles if you are able merge with the Universal Self. Sometimes some people are able to merge with the Universal Self spontaneously and perform miracles when they are in extreme situations such as life and death situation. God is like the Sun, an eternal witness; God does not literally watch over human affairs and perform miracles. God didn’t stop the Holocaust. God didn’t stop the Asian tsunami that killed more than 230,000 people in 2004. God didn’t stop the United States from dropping those two atomic bombs on Japan. Simultaneously, there have always been few Avatars with great miraculous powers, any one of them would, in theory, have had the power to rectify these tragedies. But herein is another part of the Mystery—they have not rectified these wrongs.

Union with the Divine/Brahman and miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) are only attainable in the presence of highly developed morality. As the alchemists say, “You will not transmute anything if you have not first transmuted yourself.”

Satan, Evil, the Devil, or the Black magician does not have the same power and cannot perform miracles but a great deceiver. Remember, Jesus himself was accused of devil possession.

What is the significance of the Miracles performed by Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts?

(1) Profound esoteric wisdom cannot be expressed by words, for only mere hints are possible with miracles.

Universal religion is divided into two parts: an exoteric and an esoteric part. Esoteric knowledge is the highest spiritual knowledge existing on our planet.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla

This is what science should focus now.

“The formula that nothing can be created out of nothing is appropriate to the limited field and dimensions of science. It does not at all apply to the transcendental field and dimensions of spirituality. In the latter field, anything can be created by the supreme will. All that exists can be made to disappear and what does not exist can be made to appear.” – Sai Baba

(2) “Unless you people see signs and wonders you will never believe.” – Jesus (John 4:48). Jesus proved that he was a genuine Avatar by his miracles.

“I use my Shakthi (power) to attract people and to draw them towards the Godward path. These miracles are merely baits with which I lure them towards Me. Once their faith is firmly established, they begin to look beyond the miracles and slowly start stretching their hands out for what I have really come to give—Divine knowledge and Bliss.” – Sai Baba

(3) All the miraculous faculties including spiritual knowledge/wisdom (Jnana-siddhi), are natural powers inherent to humanity. Some abilities are useful. Some are not. Some are basic and some are very advanced miraculous abilities.

Basic Siddhis or pseudo/Neo-Advaitins’ opinion on miraculous abilities do not prove one is Enlightened/Self-realised. But the more advanced miraculous abilities are the evidence of union with the Divine/Brahman-Self/Eternal Tao/Source/Universal Consciousness. It is the ultimate proof of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Brahman-Self.

“The miracles of Jesus attest to who Jesus is, God in flesh” – John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9.

Many fools are claiming to be literally God (Self), but they are deluding themselves and others because they cannot even perform a single miracle. Determining who is at-one-with God is a tricky proposition. That’s where miracles come in. According to the Church, miracles serve as proof that the saint is at-one-with God (in a state of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Brahman-Self). Miracles were required for canonization. But Church is still riddled with racism and segregation. The Church does not accept any Hindu or any other non-Christian sages’ proof that Neanderthals are still among us.

Prophet Muhammad could not perform any miracles. When challenged, he repeatedly denied being able to perform any miracle and said, “We refrain from sending the signs, only because the men of former generations treated them as false.” – Quran 17:59. But people did believe in those miracles.

“There are others who cavil at these, and whisper that miracles are not conducive to spiritual development, that they will be handicaps in the process of realisation of God, and they persuade you to stray away from the true path. These people are too weak to conceive the Divine; they have no strength or stamina to understand its magnificence and majesty. They have small minds and limited intellects.” – Sai Baba

“My miracles are spontaneous and concomitant proofs of divine majesty.” – Sai Baba

“The ‘miracles and wonders’ which cannot be explained by the categories of science, are so natural to Me that I am amused when you label them as miracles.” – Sai Baba

“I am determined to correct you only after informing you of my credentials. That is why I am now and then announcing My Nature by means of miracles—that is, acts which are beyond human capacity and human understanding. Not that I am anxious to show off My Powers.” – Sai Baba

“I reveal to you my Glory, off and on, to a little extent, through what you call miracles. I do not engage in them for name and fame; I am miraculous by My very Nature! ….They are beyond your understanding your art and skill and intelligence.” – Sai Baba

(4) It should be obvious to everyone by now that that God does not reach out of the sky to stop false-flag operations, wars, genocides, to feed the starving, or to end poverty. God never reaches down to man (humanity). Man must climb up to Brahman through self-transformation and save himself. Avatars reach out to other human beings with love and compassion. But there is very little they can do to solve humanity’s problems. It is the responsibility of all of us.

(5) To inspire people.

“Miracles only happen if you believe in miracles.” – Paulo Coelho

“There is infinite Power within man, power that is beyond comprehension and which is Divine. But he makes no effort to recognize it.” – Sai Baba

Q&A
Q: If Jesus really did all the miracles, how come he didn’t prevent himself from being crucified?
A: Most religious people do not know the real Jesus or the founders of their own religions. Those who know the real Jesus also know that it was part of the group/collective karma. It has to do with complete surrender. Once you have fully surrendered, you have to accept everything that comes your way and cannot perform miracles for your personal self.

If you want to know the real Jesus, then diligently research the modern-day Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts who can perform miracles like Swami Premananda (1951- 2011) and others.

Q: If he did miracles to prove who he was in his life, why wouldn’t he have done a few to prove who he was to the Jews and the Romans at his trial?
A: Some miracles cannot be performed for your personal self or to prove to sceptics. It can only be done spontaneously to inspire the few who are pure in heart.

There are Adepts who can demonstrate some miracles:


Unverletzbar Mirin Dajo

Q: If the spiritual goal is to become at-one-with God, does it mean people will be able to do miracles and will be able to control the weather, etc.?

A: Yes, it is possible, but it is not allowed in most cases (as it violates the universal legality). There are Avatars/ Siddhas/ Buddhas/Adepts right now on this Earth with these abilities. If you research diligently, you might find them. They are not tricks, jugglery, or illusions. But most people are committed to believe mainstream media propaganda. Western media is owned by Satan. The media is the real black magician. The nature of one who has attained perfection and bliss such as an Avatar, Siddha, Buddha, or Adept is beyond the comprehension of everyday people.

Nothing happens out of the ordinary but it doesn’t mean the Universe is a machine. The Universe is a living Being literally. True miracles are not against the laws of nature. You do not understand the laws of nature as habits of Nature. You do not understand the nature of true miraculous abilities because you are still trapped in your head/mind.

Jesus, minus his miracles, would be just a mystic like Osho or Albert Einstein. Without his miracles, Einstein’s teachings are better. There is no proof outside the Bible that Jesus even existed. The only way you can accept Jesus’s miracles is to accept the miracles of the modern-day Avatars with some sort of evidence. If you reject the modern-day Avatars, then you are actually rejecting your real Jesus.

Some fanatics believe that only their messiah or swami can perform miracles and others cannot. It is like believing Mike Tyson is the only boxing champion and rejecting George Foreman, Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield, and other boxing champions. It is pure ignorance.

Racial prejudice and discrimination are deeply imbedded at both the individual and societal levels. Christianity is the “white man’s religion,” and most Christians have a problem accepting an Indian or Asiatic Avatar with miraculous abilities even though Jesus himself was an Asiatic Avatar. Go beyond the illusion of racial prejudice and discrimination if you want to know your Jesus (the real Jesus).

“My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that’s despicable.” – Lawrence Wilkerson

“Racism is deeply rooted in the U.S. society and history.” – President Barack Obama

“Many Americans hate Obama because he’s black.” – Oprah Winfrey

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: I do not know how to perform any miracles. I don’t even know what they are. But I think it must be the mind.
HB: You are in the mind when you are babbling. Then why don’t you prove your theory by performing miracles? There are some serious TM guys who have tried to master levitation for over 40 years without any success. Because it cannot be achieved with the mind. Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kelb5IGbLXM

“Mind does not have any powers. The only power is Atman Shakthi, the power of Atman.” –Sai Baba

Chronic stress is a killer. In these modern times, most jobs involve being in the mind. You have to use your mind and be in the mind if you want to earn a living. Stress is a major risk factor in a variety of physical and emotional illnesses. Most people do not have the ability to empty their mind. So why don’t they learn a Siddhi to turn rocks into gold or turn water into wine and sell to make a living? No need to work all your life in mind-numbing jobs. But it is not possible with the mind.

PA: I don’t know how the Avatars perform miracles.
HB: Then you are not the Self (God)? What you call Self is just your personal self.

“Dharma (virtuous conduct) is the path by which the Mahaasakthi in the temple of your heart can be tapped, experienced and realised; without adherence to Dharma, it can never happen.” –Sai Baba

If Satan could materialise gold out of thin air, then the religious fanatics would be doing that right now, wouldn’t they. And there would be millions of satanic billionaires. But they cannot because it doesn’t work like that. But true Avatars can and do materialise gold talismans out of thin air, but never for their personal self.

Satan, Evil, fallen angel, the Devil, or the Black magician does not have the same power and cannot perform miracles. As the alchemists say, “You will not transmute anything if you have not first transmuted yourself.” Remember, Jesus himself was accused of devil possession (“No wonder he can cast out demons. He gets his power from Satan, the prince of demons.” – Matthew 12:24; “He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casts he out devils.” – Mark 3:22-30; “The crowd replied, ‘You’re demon possessed!’” – John 7:20; “You Samaritan devil! Didn’t we say all along that you were possessed by a demon?” – John 8:48; “He’s demon possessed and out of his mind. Why listen to a man like that?” – John 10:20; “‘I am not possessed by a demon,’ said Jesus, ‘but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.’” – John 8:49).

It is the Devil/Satan that leads people away from true Avatars by saying miraculous abilities do not prove Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Brahman-Self.

It is Satan that managed to convince billions of intelligent people that a minor fire can bring down a massive 47-story steel frame building in 7 seconds at free fall and pulverize in mid-air. This is the biggest trick that Satan ever pulled on people.

Just like that, Satan managed to also convince billions of people that there is no such thing as miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis).

If you think miracles are not significant, I challenge anyone to perform a single miracle and prove yourself first.

Q&A
Q: If miracles cannot be performed for your personal self or to prove to sceptics, then does that mean there are no ‘false prophets performing signs and wonders to deceive many’ as has often been quoted and believed by Christians?
A: It is just a Christian way of saying they won’t accept anyone else except their fantasy Jesus. But what they don’t realize is that it also implies that Jesus could have been a false prophet who deceived many by performing signs and wonders. Remember, Jesus is rejected in Judaism as a failed Jewish Messiah claimant. Christianity has little to do with reality.

There is no proof outside the Bible that Jesus even existed. There is no historical evidence of his supposed existence in 126 historical texts written in the first to third centuries. Not even by the second century Christian father Athenagoras. Not a single word Jesus.

The Bible has very little or no credibility. It contains so many errors and harmful teachings that it makes you wonder where God went to school. It is a collection of books written by many people, edited by many others, and all over a span of many centuries in an ignorant, superstitious, and cruel culture and age.

“Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous.” – David Hume

The New Testament was written and assembled to fulfil Paul’s Roman agenda, not that of the true Jesus. Christianity was invented as a political tool to control the masses of the day, and it is still being used today to destroy other religions/cultures, not to enlighten humanity.

If you believe something because the Bible says so, then you also believe in Deuteronomy 21:20-21, which says, “If your son is stubborn and rebellious, stone him to death.” Do you? And do you believe in Ezekiel 9:5-7, which says, “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, ‘Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all—old and young, girls and women and little children.’” Do you?

“You keep saying, we have the Lord’s teachings. So we are wise! But this is not true, because the scribes have lied with their pens. ” – Jeremiah 8:8

Some Christians describe Satan as some guy wearing a red suit with horns, a pitchfork, and a tail. Remember, Jesus didn’t say that. It is just an imagination/projection of someone’s untransformed psyche/mind. And don’t forget the Bible also says in Job chapter one and two that God is able to overrule evil for good and is not allowed to take human lives.

Christianity has failed to teach the real message of Jesus. Christianity has failed to live Jesus’s teachings. Christianity is a failure. It is Christianity that has failed Jesus. Christianity in its current form is an enemy of Jesus and all true sages.

What if it is Satan that is deceiving the pseudo-Christians through the Bible? If Satan is the Great Deceiver, how would you know that he’s not deceiving you through Christianity and the Bible? There are many satanic passages in the Bible. These verses came not from God but rather from Satan. Therefore, Satan has deceived most Christians through the Bible.

Miraculous human abilities (siddhis)/ CHAPTER 104

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein

Religion/Spirituality without miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) is an incomplete picture of reality. Those who were not amazed when they first came across miracles cannot possibly have understood it. They didn’t understand the significance.

Spiritual initiation is the process of reclaiming what it truly means to be a human being, and all the miraculous faculties sages described are the natural powers inherent to humanity.

Miraculous abilities are mere side effects; you could consider them a compass for spiritual development, designated for noble purposes only, and as aids to fellow human beings. That is why they are reserved only for the true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts.

“The siddhis are not merely of an inferior order but of the highest order.” – Ramana Maharshi

“They are manifestations of power and knowledge, which are quite natural to you when you realise the Self. They are Siddhis, which are the products of the normal and natural Tapas (spiritual practice) of the man who has reached the Self. They come of their own accord, they are God given. These Siddhis do not come by trying for them.” – Ramana Maharshi

“With the maturing of such tapas some jnanis can make their bodies intangible and invisible. They are known as siddhas. The greatness of the siddhas is incomprehensible. They are equal to Siva and can even grant boons.” – Ramana Maharshi

“Atman (the Self) alone is to be realised. Its realisation holds all else in its compass. Sakti, Ganapati, siddhis, etc., these are included in it.” – Ramana Maharshi

The One Self/Brahman is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, and is universal love itself. If you connect with that Self, you can perform all the miracles performed by Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, and few others. Miracles are performed effortlessly just like speaking or in complete silence. This is the real evidence of union with the Universal Consciousness or the Universal Self.

“Do not believe me unless I do what my Father (Brahman) does. But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” – John 10:38

“The miracles of Jesus attest to who Jesus is, God in flesh.” – John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9

“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me (Universal Self) will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these.” – John 14:12

“You must overcome the mental limits you set for yourself. Stop limiting yourself. You can do anything if you tap into the divine energy source.” – Swami Premananda

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” – Soren Kierkegaard

In these modern times, 99% of all the spiritual/religious teachers are just spiritual aspirants at various stages on the path to Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self. Everyone is at different stages of spiritual development, different stages of evolution of individual consciousness. There is a certain stage you need to reach before you can understand the nature of miraculous abilities.

“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” – Buddha

“Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.” – Buddha

Whatever you plant in your heart and nourish with repetition with your whole being will become a reality one day. For an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept, it becomes a reality immediately. It is like downloading something from the internet. That’s the difference. And people call them miracles.

The Universe emerged from Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao. If you understand and accept this, why is it difficult for you to accept that an Avatar who is at-one-with the same Brahman can materialise vibuthi out of nothing and perform other miracles?

“The ‘miracles and wonders’ that cannot be explained by the categories of science are so natural to Me that I am amused when you label them as miracles.

“The formula that nothing can be created out of nothing is appropriate to the limited field and dimensions of science. It does not at all apply to the transcendental field and dimensions of spirituality. In the latter field, anything can be created by the supreme will. All that exists can be made to disappear and what does not exist can be made to appear.

“It is beyond you to know how or why I create things. The objects that I create, I create them by my will, the same way I created the universe.

“The manifestation of the Linga (oval shape structure resembling the whole Universe) is a part of My Nature.

“…they (miracles) are merely spontaneous and concomitant proofs of Divine Majesty.

“It is only Nidarsan (evidence) not Pradarsan (exhibition). It is just like a play, sport—My natural behaviour. It is a sign which helps to turn into faith, devotion, inquiry and realisation of their own Atman. As the intention or the will arises in the mind, the thing is made! It is ready when I want it. The moment it is willed, the thing comes to hand or happens where I will it to happen.

“My word will never fail; it must happen as I will.

“The Divine is omnipresent. All of you are forms of the Divine. All of you are endowed with electromagnetic energy, atomic power, heat and other forms of energy. The magnetic energy is the most important power in man. From this magnetic energy comes electrical energy. The strength of the electrical energy is related to the strength of the magnetic energy. When the electrical energy and the magnetic energy come together, the divine Power operates. This divine Power does not come from outside. It is within human beings. Our very form is Divine.

“My miracles are part of the unlimited power of God. My divine will bring the object in a moment. I am everywhere.

“My miracles are spontaneous and concomitant proofs of divine majesty.

“I am determined to correct you only after informing you of my credentials. That is why I am now and then announcing my nature by means of miracles, that is, acts which are beyond human capacity and human understanding. Not that I am anxious to show off my powers. The object is to draw you closer to me, to cement your hearts to me.

“Dutt said, that you are all lucky since you have seen many manifestations of My power. But, they are manifested because they have to be, not for exhibiting attainments, nor for drawing clientele. They manifest when needed by the exercise of Will, as naturally, as spontaneously as any other physical act. I am the truth of truth, I guide towards truth, I manifest truth and when men realise truth, they realise Me

“There can be no limit for my Power, no hindrance, no opposition, or obstacle. You may believe it or you may not, but, my Power can transform Earth into sky, the sky into Earth. Only there is no call for that transformation. This is spontaneous manifestation, not those that are calculated to collect customers and exploit the ignorant.

“I use My Shakthi (power) to attract people and to draw them towards the Godward path. These miracles are merely baits with which I lure them towards Me. Once their faith is firmly established, they begin to look beyond the miracles and slowly start stretching their hands out for what I have really come to give—Divine knowledge and Bliss.

“They exaggerate the role of miracles, which are as trivial, when compared to my glory and majesty, as a mosquito is in size and strength to the elephant upon which it squats.

“Due to ignorance and vicious motives they do not grasp correctly the nature of Sai Shakthi. They interpret it as something else. That shakthi (power) is unlimited; the fault lies in their vision, if they cannot see it as it is. There is nothing that Divine Power cannot accomplish. It can transmute Earth into sky and sky into Earth. To doubt this is to prove that you are too weak to grasp the grandeur of the Universal.

“I am present everywhere, at all times; My Will must prevail over every obstacle; I am aware of the past, present and future, of your innermost thought and carefully guarded secrets. I am sarvaantharyaami, sarva shaktha and sarvajna (Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient). Nevertheless, I do not manifest these powers in any capricious manner or merely for display. For, I am an example and an inspiration for whatever I do or omit to do. My life is a commentary on My message.

“The establishment of Dharma is My aim; the teaching of Dharma, the spread of Dharma—that is my objective. These ‘miracles’ as you call them are just a few means towards that end.” – Sai Avatar

The Doer/ CHAPTER 105

“The forces of Nature do all works. But due to delusion of ignorance people assume themselves to be the doer.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 3.27)

“Though we feel that we can choose what we do, our understanding of the molecular basis of biology shows that biological processes are governed by the laws of physics and chemistry and therefore are as determined as the orbits of the planets. Recent experiments in neuroscience support the view that it is our physical brain, following the known laws of science, that determines our actions, and not some agency that exists outside those laws.” – Stephen Hawking

“The one who knows the truth about the role of the forces of Nature in getting work done does not become attached to the work. Such a person knows that it is the forces of Nature that get their work done by using our organs as their instruments.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 3.28)

“The one who perceives that all works are done by the powers of material Nature truly understands, and thus does not consider oneself as the doer.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 13.29)

“One who is desireless, pure, wise, impartial, and free from anxiety; who has renounced the doership in all undertakings; such a devotee is dear to Me.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 12.16)

“Recognising the immanence of the Divine, one has to dedicate all acts to the Divine. What is the act, when you analyse it deeply? It is the manipulation of the Divine by the Divine, for the sake of the Divine through the skill endowed by the Divine; there is no I or mine in it, except the Universal I and the Divine My.” – Sai Baba

“The bodies are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All the beings are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All experience is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All objects of experiences are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All delusions… are, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All realisation is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All yoga is, indeed, of the nature of the Self. All objects of yoga are, indeed, of the nature of the Self.” – Ribhu Gita (Ch.10, v.27)

A fish hook is an instrument of control, but it can only work if the fish swallows it voluntarily. Some kind of bait is thus necessary. In the same way, the directing forces of nature often use “bait” —for example, sexual pleasure—to shape the behaviour of living beings.

We cannot transform one flower into fruit (except as a siddhi). We cannot even create a single atom. When one acts, in his ignorance he thinks that he does everything, though in reality he does only dead work. His false assumption strengthens his false ego.

When the “I” is identified with the false ego/self, then the “I” feels that it is the doer. When the “I” is identified with the Divine, all that one does is done in perfect harmony with the Universal legality. We, and our actions, are a part of the flow. We are the enacting of the Divine “Will”. We are co-creating with the Divine/Brahman itself. As divine co-creators, we have the opportunity and responsibility to do this consciously and wilfully.

The Divine/Brahman exists all at once, as a unified whole, and what we think of as divine will is merely the Divine/Brahman being what it naturally is. The human will is an aspect or manifestation of the Divine/Brahman will. When we as individuals enact our personal will, we are making use of the Divine/Brahman Will.

That which is infinite and eternal is an all-encompassing BEING. Laws of Nature = Will of the Universe = Divine Will. The laws of nature are a manifestation of Divine Will.

A tsunami is an expression of the Divine Will. An asteroid impact is Divine Will. A pandemic is Divine Will. The dinosaur extinction is Divine Will. A group/collective karma is Divine Will. Evolution/Creation is Divine Will.

Everything that occurs, every action and every manifestation of energy or force whatsoever, is a manifestation of the Divine/Brahman Will. The evolution of our Universe and life on Earth is a manifestation of the Divine/Brahman Will. When the Sun shines, it does so because there is a Divine/Brahman Will. When a substance reacts with oxygen, it does so because there is a Divine/Brahman Will. Even when a thought is formed within our minds, it is a Divine/Brahman Will.

Transform yourself so that you harmonise with the Brahman-Self. When all power is recognised as Brahman in origin, one then has the opportunity to let it flow through one’s own individual self as Brahman energy instead of manipulating it and reshaping it into a personalised energy, fit only to meet one’s self-centred wants and desires.

From the eternal perspective, the only sort of power that the Brahman ItSelf wields is the infinite will to be, to exist. All other types of will are expressions of that Brahman Will to Be.

Anyone capable of merging with Brahman will not be willing petty things, nor things that violate the universal lawfulness. If you cannot merge with Brahman, you cannot perform miracles.

The microcosm and the macrocosm/ CHAPTER 106

The microcosm is an image (in qualities) of the macrocosm. Every human being is a microcosm reflecting the infinite number of different types of consciousness in the entire Universe (or the ONE Universal Consciousness), the macrocosm.

“What could define God [is a conception of divinity] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God.” – Stephen Hawking

To merge with Brahman-Self or God means merging with the laws of nature (the embodiment of the laws of nature). True Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts are the embodiment of the four elements or the laws of the Universe.

Merging with Elemental Air results in omniscience. Merging with Elemental Earth results in omnipresence. Merging with Elemental Fire results in omnipotence. Merging with Elemental Water results in Divine love. This is a very advanced meditation practice (after emptiness of mind). It takes years to master. Unless your individual awareness (Atman) merges with the four elements or Brahman, it will reincarnate.

We must encompass “everything in the Universe” and perceive it within our self. Our specific maturity of individual consciousness never really stops learning and evolving during the course of its existence. The individual consciousness literally evolves here in this temporal realm to become the Universal Consciousness, but not to the fullest. When the Atman merges with Brahman, you perceive the entire Universe within and as self (not literally while we are here on this temporal realm, though).

While the Avatars serve on the higher planes, they rule on the physical plane. But even the Avatars must bow to the Universal Law, and be as insignificant in the eye of the Brahman.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin(PA) Satsang vs. Human being (HB)
PA1: What is truth?
PA2: You are the truth.
PA1: What is life?
PA2: You are life.
PA1: What is God/Brahman/Self?
PA2: You are God/Brahman/Self.
PA1: What is the spiritual goal?
PA2: You are the goal.
PA1: What is X?
PA2: You are X.
PA1: If I am that, why would I ask you the question? If you are already that, why don’t you answer the question?PA1: If you are THAT/God and I am also THAT, then there are two Gods and isn’t that duality?
PA2: I am prior to that.
PA1: Who is saying this? Isn’t that perceivable? You cannot be that which you perceive. The observer must be prior to what is observed.

HB: Obviously these PAs are lost in their head. We call this heartless babbling.

PA: No human being can comprehend the activity of even one molecule of God’s kingdom.
HB: True. Then how can the PAs claim that they are already God/Brahman-Self literally? Brahman is unknowable or incomprehensible, because we are Atman-self.

PA1: What is the miracle of turning water into wine (John 2:1-11)?
PA2: You are that. You are already that.
PA1: No. I tried it but couldn’t do it.

PA1: What is the miracle of walking on water (Matthew 14:22-33)?
PA2: You are that. You are already that.
PA1: No. I tried to master this for 40 years with the TM guys but with no success. Therefore, I am not that. I do not embody the essence of Element Air yet.

PA1: Did you study science? Do you know what a singularity in physics is?
PA2: No. What is it?
PA1: You are that.

PA1: What is awareness?
PA2: You are that.

(2 months later)
PA1: We have discovered in our mind lab that there is holy soup awareness.
PA2: Then you are that. You are not awareness anymore.

(another 2 months later)
PA1: We have discovered in our mind lab that there is quantum ghost soup awareness.
PA2: Then you are that. You are not holy soup awareness anymore.

PA1: Dude, I was just testing you. There is no such thing as holy soup awareness or quantum ghost soup awareness. You are just playing with concepts/ideas, aren’t you?

HB: You don’t practice what you preach. You don’t embody what you preach. You are taking it literally. You are misusing it. Only an Avatar who embodies the essence of “THAT” can say “you are that” to those who are pure in their heart. It’s a way of planting the seeds and not to be taken literally.

Meaning of the Concept Self./ CHAPTER 107

“Even those who follow the prophets do not understand them.” – Gospel of Thomas

“A fool may live all his life in the company of a master and still miss the way.” – Buddha

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” – Philip K. D

“You have said it, but you have not understood.” – Jesus of Nazareth (TV Mini-Series)

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin gurus are killing the meaning of the concept Self. The word loses its meaning when you misuse it.

Self is a much misunderstood concept. Self is short for Brahman-Self. You are not literally Brahman-Self, not while you are on this temporal physical realm. Your awareness/consciousness (Atman) can expand and merge with Universal Consciousness. It is only in this sense that you are Brahman-Self.

Here, within our temporal physical realm of space-time, you are only Atman-self. You can be at-one-with Brahman. You are not literally Brahman-Self in this temporal realm.

Levels of Self:
1) Physical Self. This encompasses the physical body and one’s physical sphere of influence.
2) Personal Self. This refers to the astral body and the personality.
3) Individual Self (Atman). This refers to the individualised parts of the consciousness which inhabit the temporal realm. The individual self is that part which directly incarnates into the personal and physical selves. Throughout the span of time, the individual will incarnate many, many times.

“Just as the soul acquires a childhood body, a youth body, and an old age body during this life; similarly, the soul acquires another body after death.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.13)

4) Greater Self (Paramatman). This refers to the non-sequentialised (yet still divided) parts of the Universal Consciousness.

“There was never a time when these monarchs, you, or I did not exist; nor shall we ever cease to exist in the future.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.12)

5) The One Self (Brahman-Self). This is the Unity of all the separate units of consciousness. The One Self encompasses the whole of Being and is manifest in all things, from the most dense matter to the most ephemeral consciousness.

“Everything in the universe is strung on the Supreme Being, like jewels are strung on the thread of a necklace.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.07)

Our eternal Atman (Paramatman) has no beginning and no ending, and exists within the eternal realm. It projects/creates our own Atman (individual self) into the physical temporal realm of space-time.

Your eternal core (eternal Atman) created/projected your temporal self (physical self, personal self, and individual self) in this temporal realm of space-time. The physical self, personal self, and individual self are an integral part of our eternal selves (“real” selves).

You are always your Atman-self, but do not realise it. The individual consciousness never really stops learning and evolving during the course of its existence.

The problem is that the pseudo/Neo-Advaitins use the word Self to mean their mind/conditioned mind-self/false ego, personal, or individual self. The spiritual goal is to reach the Universal Self.

The Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept does not deny or discard his temporal self (personal self, physical self, and individual self), but transforms it. The mind/intellect, heart, and intuition became synchronised.

If you start with the false assumption that you are literally Self/God in this temporal realm, then you will end up with a false conclusion, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between.

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” – Jesus (Matthew 27:46 & Mark 15:34)

It doesn’t mean Brahman forsakook and abandoned Jesus while he was on the cross. It implies that the ultimate union (static state of BEing) doesn’t exist on this temporal physical realm. It only exists after death/ascent for a true Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept. The true ultimate union or perfection exists when an Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept enters the eternal realm after death/ascent. And after that, he/she can never reincarnate on this physical realm. Because the drop doesn’t exist as a drop anymore, but Brahman alone exists. Only, at this point, it is non-dual ONE or undifferentiated ONE.

The state of consciousness at the last moment of life is considered so crucial that true Enlightened/Self-realised beings (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts) spend their whole life preparing for it.

“The one who remembers the Supreme Being exclusively even while leaving the body at the time of death, attains the Supreme Abode” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.05)

“Remembering whatever object one leaves the body at the end of life, one attains that object. Thought of whatever object prevails during one’s lifetime, one remembers only that object at the end of life and achieves it.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.06)

“Those who attain the Supreme Abode do not take birth again.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.20-21)

You came out of the eternal realm like a wave from the ocean.

Everything in nature with the physical form, everything you see (trees, planet Saturn, galaxies, etc.), has its root in the invisible/formless eternal realm. This seen, physical Universe has, as its base, the unseen Nothingness/Universal Consciousness/Brahman/Eternal Tao. The formless unseen is the basis of the seen.

The Absolute/Universal Consciousness is our formless source/root. It is where we return when we become Enlightened/Self-realised. In this sense, and in this sense only, it is our real nature.

“Your reality is the Atman, a wave of the Paramatman. The one object of this human existence is to visualise that Reality, that Atman, that relationship between the wave and the Sea. All other activities are trivial; you share them with birds and beasts; but this is unique privilege of Man. He has clambered through all the levels of animalism, all the steps in the ladder of evolution in order to inherit this high destiny.” – Sai Baba

“We should ask if we existed before the body was born and if we would exist after the body dies. It is only in the interval between the birth and death that the human body exists. What we have said applies to all that we see in the creation, including the hills, trees, animals and so on…All matter that we see around us is subject to decadence with time…We should realise that we have come from the Universal Absolute and that we will ultimately go to the Universal Absolute.” – Sai Baba

“Even after hearing about it very few people know what the Spirit is.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 2.29)

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
HB: Who is it that is talking, walking, thinking, etc.?
PA: Who’s asking?
HB: The same self as your personal and individual self. What’s the point of this kind of babbling?

PA: Who is the meditator?
HB: God (Brahman-Self) does not need to meditate. We Atman-selves do need to meditate. If we are literally Brahman-Self, why do we need to surrender, and to what?

PA: As long there is a doer of meditation there is no meditation. All paths are for the ego/doer-entity (a separate doer).
HB: This is the problem with some of these Westerners. They have been sufficiently brainwashed from an early age that they cannot perceive the simple truth anymore. They don’t seem to understand these simple eastern spiritual concepts and misuse them. The concept of non-doership does not apply to these things. It is nonsense like the meaningless question fallacy ‘What is the colour of jealousy’? Reality/Self is not a one dimension singularity. It is multidimensional. We are Atman beings/selves. We are co-creators.

PA: If you meditate, the ego rises and you become ‘the meditator’.
HB: So when you babble? And when you go to the toilet? You sound like some racist, demonic Christian pastor/evangelist. Do you even know what we mean by meditation?

HB: When you babble “Self this, Self that,” you are saying God is this, God is that…as if you really know anything about God. Leave your Western religious conditioning behind first if you want to understand anything about Self. It isn’t about what God is. It is about whether you are being at-one-with Brahman.

HB: You claim to be Self/God; can you perform any miracles (Maha siddhis) like a true Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept?
PA: No, I cannot. I have to learn/embody the essence of the One Self.
HB: Then you are not the Self. You are just your evolving individual self (Atman).
PA: My gurus told me I don’t have to practice anything, that Self is already realised.
HB: So you have moved from one belief system to another.

Fanatic (F) vs. Human being (HB)
F: Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6). Isn’t Jesus the only way to Heaven/Salvation?
HB: Can you show me the Gospel of Jesus? Roman aristocrats wrote the New Testament, not the uneducated, lower-class, illiterate disciples of Jesus. Many thousands of years before Jesus, the Egyptian God Horus said “I am the Way, the Truth, the Life.” If you believe Jesus was referring his personal “I” (personal self), then it means Jesus was a narcissistic. But the “I” is referring to the Universal “I” (Universal Self).

Anthropotheism/ CHAPTER 108

“I do not believe in a personal God… I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists.” – Albert Einstein

“My religion is cosmic, and my God is too universal.” – Albert Einstein

Brahman is an impersonal, unknowable BEING. Brahman is above gender. Brahman is not a he, she, mother, or father. Energy and matter cannot create consciousness. It is the Universal Consciousness/Nothingness that creates everything—force, energy, matter, etc. I perceive the laws of nature as habits of beings. That which is infinite and eternal is a BEING, and therefore there are only formless invisible beings within this BEING. The forces of nature are angels.

A personal god is a deity, in anthropomorphic form with a human personality instead of an “impersonal Being”. Anthropotheism is ascribing human form and human nature to Brahman/Eternal Tao/Universal Consciousness/Nothingness.

In Hinduism, the elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air) are symbolised by deities. Goddesses Maha-Swari, Maha-Kali, Maha-Lakshmi, and Maha-Saraswati are related to classical elements or beings of the elements. They symbolise the forces in nature as well as inside human beings. Angels are forces of nature. The forms and names of archangelic beings are symbolic. The essence of the form is the same, but the clothing of symbols that express that essence is different depending upon whose psyche the essence is processed through. The essence of each archangelic being remains the same no matter what name and form you use.

The guardians of the four quarters are archangels Uriel, Raphael, Michael, and Gabriel. Sylphs, gnomes, undines, and salamanders are the spirits of nature or the beings of the Elements pertaining to the ancient separation of nature into its four components—earth, water, air, and fire. The entities/spirits/angels (different aspects of the Universal Consciousness/ Brahman) are real, but their form is symbolic, as is true of any astral form. Thus, the perceived form varies from culture to culture. These symbols are not universal. They are cultural. And even within a single culture, these symbols vary from individual to individual. No two people within a single culture will experience a symbol in exactly the same way. People perceive astral beings differently since they process these perceptions through different psyches/minds. These beings have an existence separate from individual psyches. It is only their forms which pertain to the individual human psyche.

In spite of how grandly we think of ourselves, the human Universe is only a very, very, very small part of the overall Universe, so it’s incumbent upon the student of spirituality to understand the Universe from a more-than-human perspective. It is counterproductive in this quest, to interpret experiences with non-human astral beings through a humanised filter or set of values.

Develop your ability to perceive through the layer of personal symbol, to the underlying essence.

Advanced initiates have the ability to imagine/visualise any form and literally turn it into physical form (materialise out of thin air). It is known as materialising spirits or evocation. Evocation is not known to science yet.

Some ancient books use the word evil/Satan/devil/demon to mean negative forces of nature such as a tsunami. But there is nothing evil about a tsunami. The poles of positive and negative coexist in the spirit and soul realms as well as in the physical realm.

The natural forms such as planet Earth, moons, the sun, stars, galaxies, black holes, dark matter, etc. in our Universe are literal manifestations of Brahman itself.

Muslim (M) vs. Human being (HB)
M: “Verily, Allah and His angels pray for the prophet.” – Qur’an 33:56
HB: God pray to God? That’s two Gods. Why does Allah say “We” or “He” to refer to Himself? Quran (06.112), Quran (010.087), Quran (015.023), Quran (015.026), Quran (020.077), Quran (032.021), Quran (032.024), Quran (025.050), Quran (047.031), Quran (056.057), Quran (078.040).

M: “The Prophet said, Allah created Adam in his complete shape and form (directly), sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height.” – Sahih Bukhari, 8.74.246
HB: God is not a human being.

Only a handful realised/ CHAPTER 109

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.” – Plato

“When I was a young man, near the beginning of my life, I looked around with true mindfulness and saw that all things are subject to decay. Thus all things are subject to death, sorrow and suffering. I became aware that I too was of the same nature, the nature of beginning and end. What if I searched for that which underlies all creation, that which is nirvana, the perfect freedom from unconditioned existence?

“After much seeking for truth and knowledge the profoundness of reality came to me with a clarity never before known. I knew that most people never see this reality because they attach to the material aspect of the world, delusions of self (false ego/false “I”) and other fill their vision. I also realised there are those with little dust limiting their vision.” – Buddha

“Blinded by this world—how few here see clearly, just as birds who’ve escaped, from a net are few, few are the people, who make it to heaven.” – Buddha

“Scarcely one out of thousands of persons strives for perfection of Self-realization. Scarcely one among those successful strivers truly understands Me.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.03)

“Few are there among men who arrive at the other shore (become Arhats); the other people here run up and down the shore.” – Buddha

“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7:14

Meditate on the meaning of the Parable of the Sower (Mark 4:3-9).

We are all potentially Enlightened/Self-realised beings (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts), but in practice few of us fully realise this potential. Enlightened beings see other enlightened beings (few) and unenlightened beings (most) simultaneously. The one who advances quickly is no better than the one who progresses slowly, because each and every one of you will reach the ultimate Self-realisation/Enlightenment/Union with the Universal Self in time. It is destined.

We see each other only within the confines of the present moment in time and space, but the “eyes” of Brahman ALWAYS see the ENTIRE infinite continuum of Self. Brahman perceives EVERY thing in its total context, from its basest imperfection to its complete perfection. Brahman sees that even the murderer will reach perfection and that even the sage was once imperfect.

Human Being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advatin (PA)
PA: The jnani sees no one as an ajnani. All are only jnanis in his sight.
HB: But you also said “many have been deluded and fallen a prey to a false sense of liberation and only a few have managed to reach the goal safely.” That’s a contradiction.

How could you possibly see all those who debase spirituality as Enlightened? How could you possibly see the false prophets as Enlightened? How could you possibly see Hitler as Enlightened? How could you possibly see all the evildoers as Enlightened? This is not an objective perception of an objective reality.

“Nobody is born as a master, but everybody is born with a tremendous potential to be a master. Everybody can be a master, but very rarely do people attain to their potential. Very rarely do people attain to their maximum peak, to the crescendo of their being.” – Osho

Brahman is within the bacteria, and yet the bacteria are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the trees, and yet the trees are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the monkeys, and yet the monkeys are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the human beings, and yet the human beings are far from being Brahman-Self. Brahman is within the Self-realised/Enlightened human beings (Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts), and the Self-realised/Enlightened human beings are close to being Brahman-Self.

“How are all equal? Because they have all the same Divine Chaithanya within them. When the Sun rises, not all lotuses in the lake bloom; only the grown buds open their petals. The others await their time. It is the same with men. Differences do exist because of unripeness, though all fruits have to ripen and fall some day. Every being has to reach the Goal, however slow they walk or however circuitous their road.” – Sai Baba

Focus on the meaning/ CHAPTER 110

Unfortunately, ancient sages not only used several terms/words/concepts for one thing, but also used one concept for several things, and different sages used each concept to mean different things, or even the same concepts with contradictory meanings. Some sages made up their own concepts and symbols. It is therefore necessary to work out the meaning of unfamiliar concepts in context and, perhaps, familiar concepts in new contexts, which you will be able to do with experience as you walk the narrow path.

“It’s like a finger pointing at the moon. Do not concentrate on the finger or you will miss all of the heavenly glory!” – Bruce Lee

When Buddha was asked if there is an ego, he was silent; when asked if there is no ego, he was silent; asked if there is God, he was silent; asked if there is no God, he was silent. Silence was his answer for all these.

Most people think that Buddha was an atheist or a mystical scientist. No, he was more than that, but he understood the meaning of silence. It’s a waste time trying to explain these subtle not-THINGS to people who are committed to misunderstanding them anyway. Sometimes no reply is the “right” reply. Most things in spirituality we need to figure out for ourselves, through our own practice.

The answer is always within you. Open yourself to your intuition and listen closely to your conscience. These are the avenues by which the Brahman-Self continuously speaks to us.

The point of meditation/self-transformation is that you learn the techniques that will lead you to finding out for yourself, first hand, the answers to these questions. The important thing is to focus upon learning the skills that will enable you to move beyond relying upon other people’s ideas and concepts and to the point where you draw your own conclusions from your own direct experience.

Most people want to make others in their own image. They want you to believe in what they believe in. They don’t want you to be yourself and find your own answers. Stop listening to these people and get to know your true self first.

Avoid relying upon others for answers, and do your best to develop self-reliance. Always look within yourself for the answers first.

Silence is also better than meaningful concepts to those who pretend to understand or simply cannot understand.

What is transitory/impermanent?/ CHAPTER 111

“The path of light of spiritual practice and Self-knowledge and the path of darkness of materialism and ignorance are thought to be the world’s two eternal paths. The former leads to salvation and the latter leads to rebirth as human beings.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 8.26)

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Matthew 7:13

What is transitory/impermanent? And what is permanent?

Ultimately, nothing is permanent on this temporal physical realm except the universal awareness. But we are human beings, and living requires many impermanent things.

Working 9-5 p.m. until the retirement age of 65 (the rat race), marriage, children, money, food, shelter, fame, honour, some material goods, etcetera are all transient, but you can be an Enlightened/Self-realised being and still have all these things as long as you are not attached to them. Just use your time wisely. There is a big difference between a want or desire and a true need. Often times, our wanting lies in contrast to our true needs. Your physical body is also impermanent, but without your body your Self-realisation/Enlightenment is not possible.

Some say that miraculous human abilities (Maha siddhis) are not permanent or the product of the mind. It is the opposite. Siddhis are permanent, but if you misuse them, you will lose them. Siddhis are just conscious evolution. In nature, animals evolve supernatural abilities(siddhis).

“Why separate your spiritual life and your practical life? To an integral being, there is no such distinction.” – Laozi

Eating food, drinking water, sleeping, and breathing are also impermanent. Can you live without them? Then, why do you take the meaning of transient/temporary to the extreme? Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins’ idea of Enlightenment/Self-realisation is just a delusion. It doesn’t exist.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins just play with words. They say there is no reaching, there is only realising. Well, if you have to realise something, then that is afresh/new and not permanent. If you are already that, why do you need to realise it?

“First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words; Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher; Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation; And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.” – Traditional Buddhist teaching

The words/concepts or even language may change, but what it symbolizes (true meaning/essential nature) remains the same. It is the true meaning that matters. Focus on the meaning. Deep spiritual experiences cannot be exactly described. Spirituality is beyond concepts/language. It is beyond any vocabulary. Profound wisdom cannot be expressed by words, for only mere hints are possible.

If you have to find/discover it within yourself, that is also afresh/new, to be acquired within yourself and through an inner pursuit.

They say “only what is eternal is worth striving for,” but if it is eternal, why do you need to strive for it? Striving for something, or striving to rediscover it is the same as inner reaching. Some people are born blind. Is that natural or not? Some people are born with some illness that can be cured in this lifetime. Therefore, what is natural? The birds, animals, and some tribes untouched by modern civilization are natural in nature, but they are not Enlightened/Self-realised. Every being is evolving in this temporal physical realm. Evolution is natural, and leading to a permanent state that doesn’t exist in this temporal realm.

One can integrate vacancy of mind into one’s life increasingly, but living requires one to think, feel, and do in addition to perceiving. Emptiness of mind is our natural state, but it doesn’t mean we don’t think at all. Self-realised/Enlightened or not, when you speak or give a discourse, you are already thinking. Then how can you return to emptiness of mind again without some time, without some inner pursuit/reaching?

If what is real must always exist, then you cannot speak at all. To speak, you need to think. Therefore, your acquired emptiness of mind is lost and not permanent.

What I am pointing at is that you should not take the meaning of these spiritual concepts to extreme. It doesn’t mean that.

True spirituality is not about some meaningless conceptual philosophy about singularity. It is about the nature of infinity. If singularity is the only one real thing, then it is not infinite. Infinity by definition is all-encompassing and multidimensional (astral, mental, eternal or akashic, non-dual).

If what is real must always exist, then Enlightenment/Self-realisation is not possible, because no human being (Enlightened/Self-realised or not) is beyond karma. It is impossible to NOT incur karma while we exist within this temporal physical realm. Even the greatest Avatar is not beyond karma, but can redeem it simultaneously with its creation.

Practice is necessary until it becomes a permanent state of eternal awareness. Effort is necessary until it becomes effortless. Meditation is necessary until it becomes unnecessary. Time is required until you realise/rediscover/reach the timeless state of consciousness.

To be the Self, first you need to become that Self. Self-realisation/Enlightenment is not for Brahman-Self, it is for the individual self (Atman-self).

Claim to be literally Self/God/ CHAPTER 112

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” – Epicurus

EVERY action is the action of part of the Universe upon itself. And therefore EVERY action is the action of part of the Brahman upon itself.

Human beings are an insignificant, infinitesimal part of the Universe. Evil exists only within some human beings because of free will. If all is God, then even evil is also God, or an infinitesimal aspect of God. Genocide is the action of part of God upon itself.

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins claim to be literally God(Self) or even beyond God. Then, why do you allow the most vulnerable people in society to be exploited, to suffer, and die every day? Why did you almost exterminate the Native Americans? Why do you kill so many innocent children and women every day in war? Why conduct false flag operations? Why do you kill innocent animals and destroy the forest? Why is there so much wrong in this world?

Don’t ask any intelligent questions to foolish pseudo/Neo-Advaitins. They just shift the blame onto you. Do you think this is the meaning of non-duality? No. This is just another clever trick by the devil to continue their destructive work and shift the blame onto you. You are only responsible for the redemption of your own personal karma. You cannot redeem the karma of another individual. It’s not your responsibility. It’s between them and Brahman. But you will suffer from their evil action (negative group/collective karma). Many innocent people die every day because of the negative karma of others. At least two Avatars died in prison in the 20th century and 21st century because of the negative karma of others (one from India and the other from Europe).

Some will say it is just an imagination, just some image/appearance or thought in their awareness/consciousness. Then why don’t you change that appearance in your consciousness and let everyone live in peace, love and unity?

Or they will say “If God has created the world, it is his business to look after it, not yours.” But then you are not God/Self. So why do you claim to be God/Self literally?

We, and our actions, are a part of the flow. We are the enacting of the Divine/Brahman “Will”. As divine co-creators, we have the opportunity and responsibility to do this consciously and willfully.

Understand the true meaning/ CHAPTER 113

“The point is to understand.” – Albert Einstein

“It is better not to know and to know that one does not know, than presumptuously to attribute some random meaning to symbols.” – The Temple of Luxor, 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt)

“It is said that when one of the great masters, Bodhidharma, went to China, many disciples gathered around him. He was the first Zen master. One disciple, who was to become his chief disciple, came to him and said, ‘Now I have become totally empty.’ Bodhidharma said, ‘Now go and throw this emptiness also! Now you are filled with emptiness—throw this also. Only then will you be really empty.

“You understand? You can be filled by the idea of emptiness. Then it will hover on you, it will become a cloud.” – Osho

“To pretend to know when you do not know is a disease.” – Lao Tzu

“People go on believing that they understand — and this very idea that they understand keeps their ignorance intact.” – Osho

“If you can’t understand the meaning of this parable, how will you understand all the other parables?” – Mark 4:13

“And the traditional religions worry me. Their long history proves that they have not understood the meaning of the commandment.” – Albert Einstein

Spiritual words/terms/concepts are not the problem. The real problem is that most people do not understand the true meaning. Most religious/spiritual people pretend to understand, but they really do not have a clue. They just memorise and repeat like parrots. Therefore, the wise man says to the fools, “throw this emptiness also” or “drop the concepts,” but the fools are repeating that, too.

If you don’t understand the meaning of emptiness, you won’t understand the meaning of “throw this emptiness also.” You will still pretend to understand the meaning of “throw this emptiness also” or “drop the concepts.” The point is to understand.

Most difficulties with spiritual practice stem from a misconceptualisation of the exercise itself. Ninety-nine percent of problems with spiritual practices are conceptual. Once a practice is understood properly, it is relatively simple, if not easy.

If you don’t know the meaning, you are a slave to a concept. Most religious/spiritual people are drowning in spiritual/religious concepts.

It is said intellect can also be a counterfeit of the higher levels when concepts and doctrines held in the mind are treated as more important than the experiences they were invented to express.

Rely not on the words of the teaching, but on the spirit of the words. Rely not on theory, but on experience.” – Kālāma Sūtra

Practice what you preach. Practice, understand, experience, embody/become, and finally BE/live it.

The concepts or even language may change, but what it symbolises (true meaning/essential nature) remains the same. It is the true meaning that matters. Focus on the meaning. Once you have understood the meaning, drop the concepts unless you want to teach others. Without concepts, how can the teacher point to the meaning? The best teachers are those who can express it clearly and simply without contradictions.

“It’s like a finger pointing at the moon. Do not concentrate on the finger or you will miss all of the heavenly glory!” – Bruce Lee

Deep spiritual experiences cannot be exactly described. Spirituality is beyond concepts/language. It is beyond any vocabulary. Profound wisdom cannot be expressed by words, for only mere hints are possible. Experience is the best teacher of all. Only what you experience for yourself has any true and lasting value. In spirituality, book learning leads to too many contradictions.

“I’m beyond the realm of speech, the mind and the intellect; How could the ultimate Reality ever be described by words?” – Dattatreya’s Song of the Avadhut (3.16-17)

In spirituality, without practice, spiritual concepts would make no sense. Practice what you preach. Practice, understand, experience, embody/become, and finally BE/live it. If you don’t practice, you cannot experience. If you don’t experience, you won’t understand. If you don’t understand, you cannot embody. If you don’t embody, you cannot live/BE it.

Some people will not understand anything I say, while few can understand everything I have to say without reading a single paragraph.

Without your own practice and experience, you will misunderstand the meaning. You can read all you want, but if you do not have the spiritual eyes that can see and ears that can hear, you will misunderstand the meaning and miss the path.

Experience of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is inexplicable, beyond words, but it is evident in the soul. There are simple, noble human beings who are fully Enlightened/Seld-realised and yet unable to express it. In spirituality, concepts/language distort the meanings when expressed in words. Embody your message/teaching and let it radiate around you. Embody it. BE it. Live it. Your energy/soul can express more than the words from the mouth. Those who cannot feel your soul will probably not understand your words anyway.

“My teaching is not a philosophy. It is the result of direct experience…My teaching is a means of practice, not something to hold onto or worship. My teaching is like a raft used to cross the river. Only a fool would carry the raft around after he had already reached the other shore of liberation.” – Buddha

“The purpose of fish traps is to catch fish. When the fish are caught, the traps are forgotten. The purpose of rabbit snares is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snares are forgotten. The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten. Where is the man who has forgotten All words, He is the one I would like to speak with.” – Chuang Tzu

“Abide as That in which there are no concepts or anything else whatsoever, the ego ceases to exist, all desires disappear, the mind becomes extinct and all confusions come to an end—and with the firm conviction that you are That, be always happy.” – Ribhu Gita, Ch.26, v.31

Words are only symbols for what we mean. The same words can be used with different meaning. It is the true meaning that matters. Ancient Enlightened/Self-realised masters (Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, and a few others) used different concepts to mean the same experience. In these modern days, most spiritual teachers use words like God, Self, and Enlightenment to mean something else.

True spirituality is very subtle and deep. Simplify it, but don’t reduce it. Seek its true meaning with your soul/heart. Don’t manipulate or play with words with your mind/head and turn it into mumbo jumbo.

PA: What is karma?
AA: Law of cause and effect.
PA: Drop the concepts.
AA: How can I answer your question if I cannot use the concepts? Can I use words or terms instead?
PA: Yes, you can use words or terms, but not concepts or ideas.
AA: Why not?
PA: My jnani gurus said so.
AA: You obviously don’t even understand the meaning of words/terms. You drop the concepts and drop the concept/idea of “drop the concepts/ideas” first.

“It is better to be wise, and not to seem so, than to seem wise, and not be so; yet men, for the most part, desire the contrary.” – Plato

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin Satsang
PA1: What can I learn/realise in this group here?
PA2: Oneness beyond the concept of Oneness, non-duality beyond the concept of non-duality. Please sit down beyond the concept of “sit down”.
PA1: I understand the meaning of “sit down”. Why do you need to say “beyond the concept of” as if I don’t understand what you mean?
PA2: You are not whatever you understand. In nonunderstanding, you understand yourself. I am using concepts in order to remove your concepts.
PA1: You are conditioned by pseudo/Neo-Advatia. Goodbye beyond the concept of goodbye.

Judgement/ CHAPTER 114

“Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales.” – Aleister Crowley

True morality is doing what your conscience dictates no matter what others do, or tell you to do. Blind fanaticism is doing what you are conditioned to do, no matter what is right.

When Jesus visited Herod’s temple, the courtyard was filled with livestock and the tables of the money changers. Making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. He poured out the coins of the moneychangers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade.”

If you were to behave the same way, you would be told (judged) by some spiritually correct people to stop judging, projecting, ego, etc. People do not know the real Jesus. People don’t know the real nature of an Avatar (Enlightened/Self-realised being). Stop being spiritually correct and just be yourself.

“You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one. Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father who sent me.” – John 8:15-16

“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.” – John 7:24

“The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.” – Corinthians 2:15

Everybody judges all the time. When you say do not judge, you have already judged the other. Some people don’t want their wrong/evil actions and behaviour to be judged, so they say “Don’t judge”. It’s a trick. This is how subtly some people control others. The point is judge with the right judgment. How can you discern without good judgment?

Develop good judgment, but don’t be judgmental. A judgmental attitude causes a person to reach conclusions based on personal bias and little to no factual evidence. And do not judge on external superficial appearances. Making unwarranted generalisations is judgmentalism. Good judgment comes from experience.

The nature of the Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts is beyond the comprehension of everyday people. One must be very advanced or an Avatar oneself in order to understand another Avatar. So don’t be judgmental.

“Look not to the faults of others, nor to their omissions and commissions. But rather look to your own acts, to what you have done and left undone.” – Buddha

A judgment upon a person is not a judgment on yourself if you judge with right judgment. Judgment upon a person is a judgment on yourself only if you are projecting your negative character onto others.

Some say that judgment and anger also imply a superiority, or righteousness. It depends on the individual. “Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judges, but I and the Father who sent me,” Jesus said. Enlightened/Self-realised beings see things as they really are. It is just objectively perceiving the objective reality.

Imagine the following scenario:

Mr. Bush (B) vs. the American people (A)
A: You are responsible for the collapse of the WTC towers.
B: No. You people are responsible for it and just projecting it onto me.
A: What kind of logic is this? I had nothing do with it. And you are still saying we Americans are responsible for it.

Japanese (J) vs. warmonger John McCain (M)
J: Your government dropped those two atomic bombs on our country. And now you want a war with Russia?
M: No, you dropped them on your country and are just projecting it onto me.

It doesn’t make sense. Do you see? If you are just stating the truth, it is not a mind-projection.

The faculty of objective perception is fundamental to the practice of true spirituality. A true Avatar/Siddha/Buddha/Adept has the ability to accurately discern between the contents of their own psyche and an objective perception of an objective reality.

If you have faith in my judgment, be a friend to your true self and do as your conscience dictates. Have faith in yourself. Be yourself and express your Self fully and truly.

Nature does not have an opinion or judge you falsely. Be like Nature.

Self–delusion/ CHAPTER 115

Anybody can claim anything, but that is not what makes their statements trustworthy.

All too often, religious people have claimed that they have communed with God, archangels, spirits from another dimension, and so on, but have actually been fooled by the contents of their own untransformed psyche. The human psyche can be a very creative thing, and it is only through long practice that one comes to the point where she/he can tell the difference between what is projected from the untransformed psyche and what comes into it from the outside, so to speak. The issue with true communion is whether or not the individual can differentiate between their own untransformed psyche and Brahman.

Most religious revelations and visions can be classed as hallucinations or grandiose delusions. This applies also to most or all of the characters in the so-called holy books. Just because the holy books say something, this does not make it true.

Students must develop their own faculty of discernment. The path of spirituality demands that students verify and prove things for themselves and not rely wholly upon what they are told.

One shouldn’t assume—one should verify through one’s own experience.

What makes you think something is true? Because someone told you so? Have you ever tried to verify it for yourself?

You also need to have some faith in some teachings, because you cannot verify everything before you evolve spiritually. Always listen closely to your conscience.

Spiritual maturity/evolution of an individual cannot really be judged by what they claim. They are verified by their actions and the understanding displayed by their actions and words, not by their claims.

In the name of non-duality, pseudo/neo-Advaitins are teaching another form of duality. Pseudo/Neo-Advaita is the path to Endarkenment or Mind-realisation. Pseudo/Neo-Advaita is Illusionism.

“Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher” – Buddha

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.” – Plato

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA) vs. Ancient Advaitin (AA)
(Two PAs in silence and meditation)
PA1: 1+1=2, right?
PA2: Yes; no; yes and no; neither and beyond.

PA1: You are a smoker. True?
PA2: True. I have changed my mind. It is false. No wait, it is true and false. No, it must be neither and beyond.

PA1: It took you three years to realise yourself, right?
PA2: Realised. Ignorant. Realised and ignorant, neither and beyond.

PA1: You sound like a politician. They never answer the question that is asked. Politics is subjective?
PA2: It is neither subjective nor objective. It is subjective. It is objective. It is both and beyond.

PA1: You are the non-Self, aren’t you?
PA2: Non-Self. Self. Non-Self and Self, neither and beyond.

PA1: You have $1000 in your wallet. Is it mine or yours?
PA2: Mine. Yours. Mine and yours, both and beyond.
PA1: OK, I’ll take it, then.

PA2: Are you in the holy beyond yet?
PA1: Beyond, not beyond. Beyond and not beyond, neither and beyond the beyond.
AA: Goodness gracious me. You call this spirituality/non-duality? This is nondoodle quantum quackery. This is narcissism.

One of the problems with our modern society is that there is too much meaningless and useless information.

PA1: I am beyond the Universe, beyond consciousness/awareness, beyond God, beyond being, beyond non-being, beyond experience, beyond universal, beyond reality, beyond observer, beyond void.
PA2: I am beyond even that.
PA1: I am beyond your beyond.
PA2: Now let’s go and convert others in the name of Self, I AM, and holy beyond.
AA: Go beyond this madness. What stopped you from going beyond that beyond? Why don’t you go beyond that beyond, too? Universal Consciousness is an infinite continuum. There is no beyond infinity.

“A fool is known by his speech; and a wise man by silence.” – Pythagoras

“To a body of infinite size there can be ascribed neither centre nor boundary.” – Giordano Bruno

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” – Carl Sagan

Going beyond matter implies duality (separation). Universal Consciousness is infinite and you cannot go beyond infinity. Do you know the meaning of Infinite Continuum?

You say “The self alone is.” It implies that the other is not-Self. This is separation or duality. The Brahman-Self is an infinite, all-encompassing (spirit and matter), universal being.

The popular images of Satan in Christianity came from representations of the god Pan in paganism. This image of Satan wearing a red suit with horns, a pitchfork, and a tail only exists in the untransformed psyche of some pseudo-Christians. It only exists in their heads.

Pseudoscience/ CHAPTER 116

“Superstition and pseudoscience keep getting in the way, distracting us, providing easy answers, dodging skeptical scrutiny, casually pressing our awe buttons and cheapening the experience, making us routine and comfortable practitioners as well as victims of credulity.” – Carl Sagan

Dressing up a religious/spiritual belief in scientific language is pseudoscience. This is easily seen with pseudo/Neo-Advaita and New Age mumbo jumbo.

“If you think you understand quantum theory…you don’t understand quantum theory.” – Attributed to Richard Feynman by Richard Dawkins

“I think that matter must have a separate reality independent of the measurements. That is an electron has spin, location and so forth even when it is not being measured. I like to think that the moon is there even if I am not looking at it.” – Albert Einstein

“I can’t accept it (quantum mechanics)… An inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. … It hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case, I am convinced that God doesn’t play dice…the moon is there even if I am not looking at it.” – Albert Einstein

“All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me no nearer to the answer to the question, ‘What are light quanta?’ Nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows it, but he is mistaken.” – Albert Einstein

Einstein refused to accept quantum mechanics and knew intuitively, it does not bridge the gulf between science and spirituality.

The real quantum mechanics in science is about the physical detector measuring the behaviour of electromagnetic wave forms (emission products in the electron gun) and light (photons) by bouncing photons off of it from the side. It has nothing to do with intention orchestrating space-time events (consciousness over matter), observation/watching, or consciousness.

I think of quantum mechanics as being a subset of “real quantum physics.” Electronics are made possible by the application of the principles of physics, not quantum mechanics. Don’t confuse physics and its applications in electronics (transistors and lasers, control of current flow in semiconductors) with quantum mechanics experiments such as Schrödinger’s cat experiment, helium atoms through the double-slit experiment, delayed choice quantum eraser experiments, firing electromagnetic waves or wave forms through the double-slit and collapse to a sum pattern and its false interpretation.

Quantum mechanics is a fraudulent science. Quantum mechanics is part of Quackademia. Bohr, Planck, Heisenberg, and Schrödinger were all lost in mathematical fantasies/lunacy. Quantum theorists are not firing “balls or marbles” electrons (particles) through the two slits as claimed in the infamous and fallacious double-slit experiment. They are firing electromagnetic waves or wave forms made as emission products in the electron gun. It is not the same mathematical electrons in the “Mendeleev Table,” and therefore not the basic building block of matter. No one has directly observed electrons. Electrons are a theoretical construct, useful to explain observations that might be difficult to explain otherwise. Electrons are a theoretical and non-existent entity in the physical Universe. Electrons and electromagnetic waves (made as emission products in the electron gun) are not remotely related in the real Universe.

Modern so-called quantum theorists are lost in their minds and just pretend to understand something that they really do not. They are deliberately making things too complex for the masses to comprehend and deconstruct.

Electromagnetic wave forms can either spread out LIKE a wave (interference pattern) or a sum pattern depending on how you set up the experiment, the detection technique. And spreading out LIKE a wave (interference pattern) and collapsing to a sum pattern doesn’t mean it is other than the same electromagnetic wave forms, because it hits the back screen as that, not as consciousness/awareness. Sum pattern is the result of destructive interference. Sum pattern is not particles. It is simple wave-behaviour all the way!

Electrons and light (photons) are not in a state of quantum superposition while traveling through space. The quantum superposition states do not even apply to single slit.

Look at the position of the detector (measuring device) next to the slit in the experiment. It’s not directly on the path the electromagnetic wave forms. If the detectors are turned off while you observe, the electromagnetic wave forms spread out LIKE a wave, therefore proving that the collapse to a sum pattern (the collapse of the wave function) is not dependent on any human observer—just the detector that is part of the experimental apparatus and how it interferes with electromagnetic wave forms by detecting them. It is simple wave-behaviour all the way. The real quantum mechanics is all about the physical interference. Electrons and light (photons) are not in a state of quantum superposition at all. Quantum superposition is a meaningless concept. It doesn’t even exist. It is just a false interpretation.

The detector interacts with the electromagnetic wave forms from the side as it travels along. When the detectors bounce photons off the electromagnetic wave forms as it travels along, it changes their energy, momentum, and position and collapses their superposition states. As an analogy, imagine trying to find the position of a marble A in a dark room, by hitting it with marble B from the side as it travels along.

The method was refined in 2012, researchers using more advanced technology and tools finally succeeded in correctly identifying which slit the electromagnetic wave forms went through without its superposition collapses.

Observer effect in quantum mechanics has nothing to do with intention orchestrating space-time events (consciousness over matter), observation/watching, or consciousness. The “observer” in these experiments is something physical, such as a detector (measuring device) next to the slit. The observer has nothing to do with human consciousness or “witnessed by a conscious being.” The detector measures the electromagnetic wave forms necessarily by bouncing photons (photon-wave) off of it. This causes the collapse of superpositions/the wave function.

Electromagnetic wave forms and light (photons) do not behave like atoms and everyday objects. Quantum theory doesn’t apply to atoms and the macroworld. Atoms are made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. The Universe is made up of atoms, not these electromagnetic wave forms. These electromagnetic wave forms and light (photons) are not the essential building blocks of reality.

The quantum observer effect doesn’t apply to a macroworld. God does not play dice with the macroworld. The moon is there whether you observe it or not. The moon itself is a conscious being. Brahman is also within the moon.

All laws of physics break down at a singularity. Quantum theory and the theory of relativity fail in this primal state. Quantum laws do not apply to the macroworld (classical mechanics). Quantum laws vanish as things increase in size. These laws coexist but are irreconcilable. They work within their own boundaries; however, they break down at the so-called Planck scale.

There are no quantum detectors bouncing particles off inside the retina. Many nocturnal animals can see well in total darkness and have colour vision. And it is possible to see/observe the physical realm with your eyes closed or in absolute darkness if you know how to astral-travel. You can see/observe without photons. There are people with siddhis (superhuman powers) who can see with their eyes closed or in absolute darkness.

“The Sage knows without travelling, Sees without looking, And achieves without a do.” – Lao Tzu

Quantum woo woo is a New Age version of God of the gaps. Quantum woo woo is pseudoscience. Quantum woo woo is an utter misunderstanding of concepts of physics.

Most spiritual teachers do not even understand basic science. They use words like time, space, and Universe to mean something they imagine.

Traditional religions embrace a lot of foolish beliefs. So does modern spirituality.

Religion/spirituality without miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis) is an incomplete picture of Reality. Consciousness/Intention over matter is real in the macroworld. But of course, there are limits to what is possible. Miraculous abilities are real and apply to the macroworld, but if you have to resort to quantum mechanics to explain this spiritual phenomenon, then you don’t understand spirituality. Some people are using the concept quantum to mean magick/miraculous ability/siddhis. There is no scientific basis for using quantum theory to justify magick/siddhi. Do your research diligently. Magick is magick. Quantum mechanics is quantum mechanics. They are two completely different unrelated subjects.

The interference pattern – sum pattern duality of the electromagnetic wave forms doesn’t prove the connection between Matter and Brahman/Universal Consciousness. You are focusing on the wrong thing. It is the siddhis that reveal that Matter and Brahman/Universal Consciousness are but the two poles of the same thing, like cold and hot.

Q&A
Q: Is Schrödinger’s cat dead or alive?
A: Are you serious? You call this science? Modern-day science is dead without Albert Einstein. This is worse than the worst conspiracy theory or religious superstition. This is what you do with billions of dollars of taxpayer money?

There are three false assumptions, one stacked upon another here:
(1) The radioactive atoms are in a superposition of being both decayed and not decayed at the same time;
(2) The collapse of this superposition is dependent on a human observer (opening the box and looking); and
(3) There are radioactive atoms and cats in the quantum realm.

In the quantum realm, there are no radioactive atoms or cats. The superposition collapses of the double-slit experiment don’t apply to atoms undergoing radioactive decay in our world. The electromagnetic wave forms spreading out LIKE a wave (interference pattern) and collapsing to a sum pattern doesn’t mean it is other than the same electromagnetic wave forms, because it hits the back screen as that, not as consciousness/awareness. The electromagnetic wave forms have nothing to do with being dead or alive. The interference pattern – sum pattern quantum superposition doesn’t apply to other phenomena in the Universe (temporal physical realm). You cannot state that you are black and white at the same time, a monkey and an elephant at the same time, etc. The radioactive atoms are not in a superposition of being both decayed and not decayed at the same time. The “observer” in double-slit experiments is a detector (measuring device) next to the slit, not a human observer or a conscious being. Start with false assumptions and you will end up with false conclusions, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between.

Leave that poor cat alone. Let’s replace the cat with warmongers like Bush/McCain in a big box, the toilet, and try a quantum poo experiment. This is a quantum joke, therefore no offence meant. Imagine Bush/McCain is in the toilet. He might be shitting or not shitting, that is the question. The shitting or not shitting superposition is not determined until you open the toilet door and observe Bush/McCain. Do you see, this is exactly what you are saying with Schrödinger’s cat experiment? Now, how many years and how many billions of dollars do you need for this research?

The smallest living creature is a parasitic bacterium. It’s about one five-thousandth of a millimetre in diameter. And some viruses (poliovirus) can be much smaller, even, say, ten times smaller.

A photon is defined as a volumeless, dimensionless particle having little (less than 3×10^17 electron volts) or no mass. But some say photons don’t really exist: they’re a purely conceptual entity, occupying no physical space. They’re a ‘fiddle-factor’ used by scientists to make their sums work out.

How did you go from interference pattern – sum pattern duality of electromagnetic wave forms to dead or alive? There is absolutely no relationship between the two. Where did you find that electron-sized cat? From the UFO that crashed at Area 41, piloted by Bush?

Q: What about helium atoms through the so-called “double-slit experiment”?
A: What makes you trust this individual who wrote it? People twist everything these days. It is written by the same person who believes that reality does not exist if you are not looking at it. Some pseudo quantum physicists have deliberately distorted these experiments and interpretations.

Study X-ray crystallography and diffraction grating to understand it better. X-ray crystallography depends on the same principle, where the layers of atoms act as a grating (n slits) and X-rays can be considered waves of electromagnetic radiation. The real quantum mechanics is all about the physical interference. You can produce different effects depending on the nature of the detectors and the particles they bounce. It depends on the speed, energy, mass etc. It’s a trick.

Try this simple experiment: Throw or drop a tiny ball through a double-slit. It will just pass through the double-slit and still remain as a ball. Quantum laws do not apply to the macroworld (classical mechanics).

Q: What about the delayed choice quantum eraser experiments? Does it prove future events decide what happens in the past?
A: No. The interpretations of these experiments are false. Start with false assumptions and you will end up with false conclusions, no matter how perfectly logical the steps in between. The delayed choice quantum eraser experiments or the quantum entanglement do not prove future events decide what happens in the past or instantaneous communication. Modern-day science is a joke.

The delayed choice quantum eraser experiments only prove that it produces the same effect whether you place the detector at the slit or after the slit. It has to do with the physical properties of these electromagnetic wave forms. It doesn’t mean that the electromagnetic wave decided to consciously travel back in time. It does not describe or represent the future affecting the past. Nor does it represent faster-than-light or instantaneous communication. Time does not go backwards in the physical realm. What we do with the present is what determines the future.

With the quantum entanglement experiments, look at how the detector interferes with the entangled photons by measurement of physical properties such as position, momentum, spin, polarization, etc. In quantum entanglement experiment, most photons just pass right through. But every so often, an incoming photon splits into two. Quantum entanglement applies to these entangled photons, not to every photon. The two entangled photons are already in a predetermined state—either one is spin up and the other is spin down, or vice versa. Their physical properties are already linked to keep total angular momentum zero for the pair. If you then separate the two photons and measure one of them to be spin up, the other must be spin down. The particles are not telepathically communicating with each other. Just physics, no ESP in quantum entanglement.

Einstein proposed that the particle isn’t in a superposition state, or two places at once, but rather it always has a “true” location and people just couldn’t see it. The effects of quantum entanglement don’t prove that Einstein was wrong on quantum theory. But Einstein was wrong about the nature of miracles (Maha siddhis) and some of his own theories. Mental telepathy is real, but it has nothing to do with quantum entanglement/quantum mechanics.

Human being (HB) vs. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitin (PA)
PA: When I sleep, the Universe disappears due to the collapse of the wave function. Sleeping is enlightenment.
HB: I saw you sleeping. And you were in the same Universe. Think about the people who were born blind and the people who sleepwalk at night. For quantum’s sake, do not cross a busy road with your eyes closed or without observation. You are asleep (unaware). Just wake up and all will be well.

This is the new deadly spiritually-transmitted disease. Do not believe in anything simply because a so-called quantum physicist said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held in science.

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” – Albert Einstein

Spiritual materialism/False ego/ CHAPTER 117

“Walking the spiritual path properly is a very subtle process; it is not something to jump into naively. There are numerous sidetracks which leads to a distorted, ego-centered version of spirituality; we can deceive ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques. This fundamental distortion may be referred to as spiritual materialism.” – Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Life is a pilgrimage to Enlightenment/Self-realisation. Life is a pilgrimage to Universal Consciousness/Nothingness/Brahman/ Eternal Tao. All human beings are spiritual aspirants at various stages on the path to Enlightenment/Self-realisation. Each and every one of you will achieve ultimate Enlightenment/Self-realisation in time (but only a handful of people in this lifetime). But most religious/spiritual teachers are going in the opposite direction. They are lost.

“There is no polite way to suggest to someone that they have devoted their life to a folly.” – Daniel C. Dennett

Political correctness doesn’t work in spirituality. The truth has to be stated as it is. Evil dominates in the official society under the guise of good. There is no one speaking up for truth and righteousness in this society. Fear dominates our society. It is about time someone has the courage to stand up and tell the truth! Cultivate the Warrior Spirit.

“What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth, and the elimination of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife… Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment…” – Nikola Tesla

Truth should be spread on the Internet for the benefit of all mankind. Work together with me to spread the truth for the benefit of all mankind. We’re all in this together.

There are too many fanatical haters from Western societies who attack anyone who is trying to spread the truth. They ridicule and violently oppose anything spiritual.

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.” – Mark Twain

There is a lot of negativity in spiritual Facebook pages, forums, groups, organisation, etc. Instead of spreading truth and love, it has become divisive and quarrelsome. Religion/Spirituality seems to attract too many haters. It is very easy for most people to become fanatical and blinded by their own beliefs. They are fighting to prevent the spread of truth and love, for they neither go in themselves, nor do they allow those who are entering to go in. They are preventing others from attaining happiness and bliss, even at the cost of their own. They completely twist the meaning of spiritual concepts to control their followers. All this is unfortunate for anyone who is sincerely searching for true understanding. They are misled, abused, and confused. A new research study published in “Health Services Research” shows fanatical religious teachings and practices can cause serious mental health damage. “Religious Trauma Syndrome” (RTS) includes depression, anxiety, and cognitive difficulties. Fanatical religions in their current form are Satanism in disguise.

“It is often tragic to see how blatantly a man bungles his own life and the lives of others yet remains totally incapable of seeing how much the whole tragedy originates in himself, and how he continually feeds it and keeps it going.” – C.G. Jung

There are too many gullible, naïve, toxic, and delusional people living in their own dream world totally detached from reality. The opportunity for interesting discussion is almost always rejected and replaced by woo woo. Most seem more attracted to the fanciful and imaginative lies that offer false hope than the stark, naked truth. People are moving from one belief system to another.

Most good, intelligent people give up the spiritual path because they say that it attracts the insane, social misfits, psychotics, deviants, paranoiacs, Harry Potters, speculators, mad self-deluded charlatans, quacks, con men, liars, cheats, self-deluded buffoons, gullible saps, credulous cretins, uncritical simpletons, unbalanced wacko, pseudo-quantum physicists, sinners (American Taliban/fundamentalist Christians),etc.

Anyone can easily make any theory “fit” with isolated statements from religious/spiritual texts taken out of context, and this is what most religious leaders and pseudo/neo-Advaitins do.

If you don’t understand basic science, you will make some big mistakes in spirituality.

“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” – Albert Einstein

One needs to make assumptions, but the validity of the assumptions one makes is very critical, so one should seriously consider the justifications for each assumption. Also, one should be willing to change them if they lead to contradictory situations.

“Was there ever a more horrible blasphemy than the statement that all the knowledge of God is confined to this or that book? How dare men call God infinite, and yet try to compress Him within the covers of a little book!” – Swami Vivekananda

And don’t assume everything your guru/teacher teaches is true. Some gurus completely contradict themselves and you still believe they are Enlightened/Self-realised. Half-truths are misleading and are still not the truth. If you mix medicine with poison, it is not medicine. It is a poison.

The egos are very delicate. The egos hate those who speak the truth. Pseudo/neo-Advaitins even twist the meaning of ego. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins want to achieve Self-realisation with their false ego (false “I”). That’s not possible. That is Endarkenment or Mind-realisation. Self-realisation exists after the work of character transformation, not before. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins use the word ego (false ego/false “I”) to mean anything that exists on this 4.5-billion-year-old planet and in the infinite physical Universe. This is not the meaning of ego defined by the ancient sages from the East and the West. There is no false ego in indigenous societies as we see in Western societies/civilisation. Pseudo/Neo-Advaitins claim and believe everything (trees, children, birds, and so on) has false ego except for whatever nonsense inside their physical head they call self. They are projecting their own false egos on nature. For them, self is ego and ego is self. They call the noble beings ego and think of their egos as the self. Don’t confuse Atman-self with ego (false ego/false “I”).

Very, very few are genuinely interested in true spirituality. The narrow path of the true Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts is not for everyone. Many are called but only a handful of people enter the eternal realm in every generation. Many seek, but only a handful of people find it.

Do not be misled by words of those who pretend to understand. Few self-proclaimed pseudo/Neo-Advaitin jnanis of the 20 th-century are puppets of the rich and influential Western devotees.

Some devotees wanted instant Self-realisation with no practice. These delusional jnanis taught them…no effort is necessary, no seeking, nothing to practice, the body and everything is an illusion, time is an illusion, no goal, and everybody is already Enlightened (Self is already realised). These gurus have intensified the egoism of their devotees and led them into a pit (suffering, delusion, and madness).

Pseudo/Neo-Advaitia is abrahamic religious influence and infiltration into Sanātana Dharma. These pseudo/Neo-Advaitin gurus have sold their souls and reduced thousands of years of Advaita teachings into gibberish to feed the egos of some fools. Profanation is the worst sin/evil action. Every action produces consequence and karma whether we intend it or not. There is no escape until you redeem your negative karma.

Fanatic (F) vs. Human being (HB)
F: If you don’t believe in our delusions, you’ll be burning in hell for all eternity.
HB: If hell is a physical place, I would call the Fire Brigadeor build an AC.  Alternatively, you can drink a lot of water and urinate for all eternity. Anyway, it’s full of so many scientists that it’s air conditioned now. And they have created a portal to heaven with 72 virgins. To believe in what you believe in, you are already in hell on Earth. Your satanic religion is only for moron like you who are living in hell. Spirituality is for the firewalkers and warriors.

HB: If you don’t believe in the double-slit flying spaghetti monster, you’ll be burning in a lake of Schrödinger for all eternity.
F: What is that hell? It is scarier than our hell.

Religion/ CHAPTER 118

When you merely identify with your religion, nationality, race, colour, and so on, some of you begin to hate others and become violent.

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.” – Desmond Tutu

“They came with a Bible and their religion. They stole our land and crushed our spirit and now tell us we should be thankful to the ‘Lord’ for being saved.” – Chief Pontiac (1720-1769)

“In ideologies there is not Jesus: in his tenderness, his love, his meekness. And ideologies are rigid, always. And when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… But it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians.” – Pope Francis

“There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn’t matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.” – Hindu proverb

“There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same.” – Chinese proverb

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” – Albert Einstein

All religions are branches of the one universal religion. There is some truth in all religions, like how pieces of a puzzle show you a portion of the larger picture. All religions have the same source and are just expressing the truth from a different perspective. The essence of all religions is one and the same. There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness. But if you are a universal being, you cannot belong to or identify yourself as a follower of a particular religion. It is against your true nature. Be true to yourself. Be a human being. Be a universal Being. Be your true Divine Self.

“I have learned so much from God that I can no longer call myself a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew.” – Hafez

The spiritual goal of Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self is the same for all human beings, and it must be eternal and within. The ultimate state and the experience is the same for all human beings. The interpretations and expression may be different because of different psyches/minds. Jesus basically experienced the same thing/not-THING as Buddha did. But the followers of Jesus have misunderstood and misinterpreted the essence of his teachings. The essence of their teachings is the same. They are unique expressions of the same essential teachings. All of them taught the same truth, but according to the needs of the time and place. They appear different to the unenlightened ones only because they do not fully understand the universal spirituality.

When you identify yourself with a group, country, religion, ideology, and so on, you remain incomplete. Some people even go so far as to even attack anyone with a different ideology than theirs. The internet is filled with these kinds of fanatical haters.

“Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.” – Albert Einstein

Overcome your fears. It is fear that leads to identification with a group, a country, an ideology, and so on. Dogmatic/Fanatical religions are only for those who do not have the courage to be themselves and are looking for group identity and belonging. People identify with a religion, political party, nation, and so on through tradition, fear, habit, prejudice, conditionings, imitation, and laziness. People convert to fanatical religion out of fear. It takes courage to get out of your fanatical religions. Like fans of sports teams, most people adopt the religion/spirituality of their family, friends, and culture. This is neither true universal spirituality nor unconditional love. This is a tribal game, often a deadly game, as we have seen throughout our history.

All the religious/spiritual texts are like the incomplete jigsaw puzzle. It won’t make any sense because there are pieces to the puzzle that are missing. You must put the pieces of the puzzle together. Buddhism is the core of every religion. You can either find the missing pieces through your own self-revelation, or from science, Buddhism, and other religions or spirituality. We must develop/embody the missing pieces in our lives to become true human beings.

You were human beings before you became Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc. The essence of all the religions is about being a human being and becoming a universal being.

There is only one universal religion/spirituality, just like there is only one universal science. You don’t have a Muslim science, a Hindu science, a Christian science, etc., so then how can you have different religious ideologies?

Do not convert people into your dead fanatical religions. Convert yourself first from being miserable to being happy, from ego to true self, bondage to liberation, ignorance to Enlightenment/Self-realisation. And others will follow you.

Transform your religions into the one universal religion/spirituality or it will not survive. It will die out. The one universal religious principle can never die. Your incomplete fanatical religions will die out unless they are redressed with new forms.

Hindu (H) vs. Fanatic (F)
F: Don’t you believe in God?
HB: Which God?
F: There is only one God, our God.
HB: “You believe that there is one God? Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”– James 2:18-20
Hindus discovered your God thousands of years before your religion and called it Brahman, the One without a Second (Ekam advitîyam). This was when you Europeans/Arabs were stone Age hunter-gatherers.
F: Then why call our God Brahman?
HB: Because we discovered/created Sanskrit, the oldest language in the world.
If everything is predetermined, as you believe, then why are you converting people to your image? If God wants me to be something, let God tell me, not you. If God is one, why are you trying to convert me to another God as if there are two Gods? Is this your definition of monotheism? Define your God.
F: He is a white male like President Bush, watching over us in the sky, who is jealous and proud of it; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a petty, unjust, racist, infanticidal, unforgiving control freak; a capriciously malevolent bully; a genocidal, megalomaniacal, anti-science, anti-woman…
HB: That’s the Devil/Satan. How can the father be white, when the majority of peoples in the world are non-white? And what happened to the mother? Are you saying your God is gay?
F: Do you believe Jesus is our saviour?
HB: You have been fooled. Jesus was not a Euro-American white guy. He was a brown, socialist, Semitic Jew from Palestine. Why would a brown Palestinian guy save you Euro-American white people? Jesus said he will return (Second Coming) in the Apostles’ lifetime, but he didn’t. “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” – Matthew 24:34. Don’t believe the blind that are leading the blind. You are your own saviour.
How many Avatars did your religion produce in the last 2,000 years?
F: Just one. Only Jesus.
HB: Different religions are like different MLM/Network Marketing companies that produce millionaires. The best MLM/Network Marketing company is the one that produces the most number of millionaires. Hinduism produces many Avatars in every generation. Why would I want to leave this all-inclusive religion and join your religion when your religion is just a part of Hinduism?
F: Now let us pray to our son of God.
HB: We don’t need a son of God when we have the incarnation of God in human form, Krishna. Anyway, we know what you did to Native Americans and Africans with your prayer. Nice trick, but it won’t work anymore.

Richard Dawkins on God Delusion/ CHAPTER 119

Scientist Richard Dawkins claims that organised religion (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) is the ‘root of all evil’.

People don’t understand the simplest thing in this world anymore. Everything is so twisted in this world, and has been for so long period, that and people from the birth are seeing this twisted state of the world and assume these teachings to be the truth. It takes a lot of effort mentally to get to the bottom and understand the true meaning of ancient religion.

Over 95 % of the so-called holy books are irrelevant and redundant, but they also contain some truth (about 5 %) if you know how to mine for it. The problem is that over 99% of religious people do not have the ability to discern, and they end up eating all the poisons in it. The medicine mixed with poison is only a poison. False doctrine is like rat poison, which contains 99% good food and 1% poison—it’s that 1% of poison (or falsehood) that kills your spirit.

“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” – Blaise Pascal

Religion/Magick/Spirituality in itself is neutral, but can be used for good or evil by the practitioner. Like a knife, it can be used to cut a slice of bread, or to kill. It is the practitioner that can be classed as Satan/Evil/Devil/Fallen angel/Black magician because of his/her negative character traits.

Some fanatical religious groups take their scriptures out of context in order to support their delusions/beliefs/false ego. Some twist their scriptures for their own personal benefit.

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” – Philip K. D

The essence of religion is not evil, but the words of ancient sages which have been bastardised by evil people. You can actually see this process taking place in pseudo/Neo-Advaita. Pseudo/Neo-Advaita gurus have reduced (and are still reducing) thousands of years of Advaita teachings into gibberish.

True religion is spirituality. Bad/false spirituality is another form of religion. The fanatics/fools can turn a true spirituality into another bad religion. It is heretical to read some parts of your holy books literally.

Some say that spirituality is not religion. Yes and no. The difference is the interpretation. Words are only symbols for what we mean. The same words can be used with different meaning. It is the true meaning that matters. Most religious leaders and spiritual teachers twist the meaning of the same words to control people.

No matter how carefully you choose your words, they’ll always end up being twisted by the fools, fanatics, con-men, and the evildoers.

The real problem in religion/spirituality is that those who babble do not have a clue, have never understood or experienced that which is infinite and eternal.

Scientists like Richard Dawkins and most intelligent good people see all the negativities surrounding both religion and spirituality, and so reject religion completely.

“I no longer believed in the known God of the Bible, but rather in the mysterious God expressed in nature.” – Albert Einstein

Buddha also rejected the known God of the Hindu scriptures, refused to endorse many views on creation, and stated that questions on the origin of the Universe are not ultimately useful for ending suffering.

The mysterious God expressed in nature is what Jesus meant by God. The fools, fanatics, conmen, and the evildoers use the same concepts with their own twisted meanings. This is how most devout religious people are deceived by Satan. This is why good, intelligent people are no longer interested in religion. The real enemies of Jesus are those Christian fanatics/haters who manipulate the meaning of Jesus’s words.

Those who believe that they are fighting in the name of the God are really working out their ego and their own delusions.

Evil/ CHAPTER 120

“A good friend who point out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals the secret of some hidden treasure” – Buddha

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare

“There are only two types of human beings in this world: The divine, or the wise; and the demonic, or the ignorant.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.06)

“But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me.” – Matthew 16:23

“The marks of those who are born with demonic qualities are: Hypocrisy, arrogance, pride, anger, harshness, and ignorance.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.04)

“Divine qualities lead to salvation, the demonic qualities are said to be for bondage.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.05)

“The evil doers, the ignorant, the lowest persons who are attached to demonic nature, and whose power of discrimination has been taken away by divine illusive power (Maya) do not worship or seek Me (Universal Self).” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 7.15)

“Persons of demonic nature do not know what to do and what not to do. They neither have purity nor good conduct nor truthfulness.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.07)

“They say: The world is unreal, without a substratum, without a God, and without an order.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.08)

“Adhering to this wrong atheist view, these degraded souls—with small intellect and cruel deed—are born as enemies for the destruction of the world.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.09)

“Filled with insatiable desires, hypocrisy, pride, and arrogance; holding wrong views due to delusion; they act with impure motives.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.10)

“Obsessed with endless anxiety lasting until death, considering sense gratification their highest aim, convinced that sense pleasure is everything.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.11)

“Bound by hundreds of ties of desire and enslaved by lust and anger; they strive to obtain wealth by unlawful means for the fulfillment of sensual pleasures.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.12)

“Bewildered by many fancies; entangled in the net of delusion; addicted to the enjoyment of sensual pleasures; they fall into a foul hell.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.16)

“Self–conceited, stubborn, filled with pride and intoxication of wealth; they perform service only in name, for show, and not according to scriptural injunction.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.17)

“These malicious people cling to egoism, power, arrogance, lust, and anger; and hate Me (Universal Self) who dwells in their own bodies and those of others.” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 16.18)

“When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart.” – Matthew 13:19

“The whole world is under the control of the evil one.” – John 5:19

“Satan has deceived the whole world and much of the world doesn‘t even know he exists” – Rev. 12:9

The only place in this Universe that evil/the fallen angel/the Satan/the devil/the demon exists is within the hearts (negative emotions) and minds of some people. A bird, a storm, a rock, a tree—these do not manifest “good” and “evil.” The poles of positive and negative coexist in the spirit and soul realms as well as in the physical realm. Some ancient books use the word evil to mean negative laws of nature such as a tsunami or an earthquake. But there is nothing evil about a tsunami or an earthquake. Most religious people confuse laws of nature with evil.

We live in a global society that has fallen into sin. Satan is the master deceiver and liar. Satan uses the most devious, sneaky, and subtle strategy against humanity. The devil/Satan uses fanatical religions, consumerism, hedonism, deception in the form of conspiracy theories, and other forms to enslave humanity. Conspiracy theories are created by Satan to distract, divide, divert, and misdirect people from reality. People are not aware of what’s really going on in our society. Satan has deceived most people in Western society into worshipping it.

What people fear, they hate, and whom they hate, they wish dead.

Truth will lead you to the Divine/Brahman, while untruth will lead you to the Devil/Satan. Ignorance is defined as the root of all evil.

We must each and every one of us face the consequences of our actions. The divine fire of karma is what leads us to inevitable perfection (after many lifetimes), and there’s no escaping it.

In these modern times, there is a decline of Dharma (Morality/Righteousness) and rise of Satanism or evil forces. In Sat Yuga, the world had around 99% Good and 1% Evil, but today, the majority of human beings are mischievous and evil. The result is chaos and confusion in all walks of life.

Fanaticism in the name of religion is the most absurd en masse madness. Today, the fanatic demons are, in the name of God, working out their evil plans to destroy the peace of the world. Fanatical religions have been hijacked, twisted, and distorted by false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing preaching hate, racism, division, guilt, bigotry, and fear.

Keep yourself protected from evil human beings who are negative because they feel challenged. As they have been carrying on with falsehood, they get angry with you and they will try to harm you. They will challenge and test you. If you do not have an absolute commitment to the Divine/Brahman, if your will is in any way weak or undefined, they will sense it and influence you. Evil dominates in our modern society; Evil influences exist everywhere in our society. If you are shining, they get jealous and possessive. If they can’t have you for themselves, they hate you and prefer to injure or destroy you. They want your light to go out. It can be in your best interest to remain anonymous if you are trying to spread the truth.

Those who twist and bastardize the meaning of ancient sacred teachings are demons. Those who teach you that the miracles (Maha siddhis) of modern-day Avatars are nothing, have nothing to do with Enlightenment/Self-realisation or are just the mind, etc. are demons. Today there are many Judases in this world. Judases are tempted by money. Because of their greed for money, people resort to evil and unjust ways, destroy truth and indulge in false propaganda. The spirit of persecution is still here in these modern times. There are certain spiritual teachings, which, if made public, would bring down upon the Avatar a great cry of scorn and revilement from the religious fanatics, who would again cry out, saying, “It is fake. Crucify, crucify Him!”

People who try to obstruct sacred missions are demons.

“From time to time, many noble souls, endowed with immense spiritual power, have taken birth to propagate sacred teachings to the world. They struggled hard to make the world a good place to live in. But without understanding their noble intentions, foolish people tried to ridicule and persecute them.” – Sai Baba

“All noble souls and incarnations in the past had also to put up with criticism.” – Sai Baba

In this age of conspiracy theories, only the wise know the truth. Demons are powerful liars. They can easily influence/ brainwash even the most intelligent people and 99% of all religious/spiritual gurus. Demons are masters of negative subliminal messages.

Be independent. Do not depend on negative people who control, manipulate, bind, confine, suppress, and destroy you to accomplish their ends. They will tempt you with all sorts of gifts just to control you, to manipulate you, to drag you down with them.

They are like salesmen. They know how to influence you. They are so effective because they actually believe their own lies/delusions. Most of them are in spiritual and religious communities. They fool themselves into believing their lies. It is a life style for them. They supervise doubts, obsession, illusions, degradation, and destruction, not transforming and uplifting experiences. If you lack meaning and purpose, they are happy to guide you into some pit.

If you want wealth, they will corrupt and destroy your soul as they offer you wealth. If you radiate positive energy, they want to devour your energy like vampires. They take it and turn it into something horrible. If you are optimistic with positive attitude, they want to turn them into discord. A demons in its essence, attempts to prevent your spiritual growth.

They do not want to be healed/freed/transformed. Instead, they want you down with them in their pit of misery, depression, and darkness. They will give you lots and lots of attention. They use psychological mind tricks and will trick you in every way imaginable. Like a vampire, they cannot live without feeding regularly on your emotions. They are always trying to catch you off guard to lead you astray. They will influence your thoughts slowly over a long period of time to lead you to the edge of that pit, and when you are off guard they will try to push you in.

These demons/predators will manipulate and control you to feel secure. They want to keep you in a mental cage with chains to feel secure. It’s kind of like that. The demons do not have access to their whole being so they are unable to share or attain union along these lines.

Noble beings know each other’s soul. They can feel other’s soul even when they do not see each other for years, and even when the other lives on different continent. No mental cage with chain is necessary for security.

Many fanatical evangelists/pastors/preachers rape the souls of their followers in the name of God.

Satan has fooled billions of religious fanatics with so-called holy books. Your holy books contain some truth, but they are also very toxic and dangerous. Medicine mixed with poison is only a poison. False doctrine is like rat poison, which contains 99% good food and 1% poison—it’s that 1% of poison (falsehood) that will kill you! Disinformation is a powerful tool that Satan uses on the human race to enslave humanity and bring about mankind’s extinction. Disinformation combines some truth, observation, what people want to be true, and cleverly disguised outright falsehoods. Your holy books are full of contradictions, inconsistencies, disinformation, outright lies, scaremongering, serious prejudice, ignorance, hate, tyranny, genocide, ridiculous stories, made-up histories, etc. You believe your holy book is the literal word of God, but in the book of Job, it says that God literally made a deal with the devil. According to the Bible, god killed 2,821,364 plus another 25000000 (estimate) while Satan killed only 10 plus another 60 (estimate). Then what you call God is a fallen angel or the Devil/Satan. The greatest lie the Devil/Satan ever told was convincing humanity that pseudo-Christianity follows the true teachings of Jesus. For Satan so loved the fools that he created these false Abrahamic religions, that whoever believes in it shall perish.

Bible contains hundreds of perverted, gross and indecent stories of sexual decadence to corrupt the minds of children, not fit to be read by any decent human beings. The Bible should be X-rated. There are many satanic passages in the Bible. These verses came not from God (inspired by God) but rather from Satan. Therefore, Satan has deceived most Christians through the Bible.

The demons lead you to obsession and restriction, that is, to a loss of freedom. They entrap individuals and tie them into a mental cage with chains through which the individual is unable to grow spiritually. It is only then that you realise how valuable freedom and self-mastery are.

Once you encounter a powerful demon, life just isn’t the same. It takes enormous commitment, determination, self-discipline, and self-transformation to regain your balance. It requires great willpower to be free of these negative influences. You need to root yourself in the Source/Brahman. Demons cannot influence an individual who identifies and merges with the Divine/Brahman.

They will be waiting lifetimes just to catch you off guard to lead you astray again. Life is a school with a lifetime of tests until you pass and become the master.

What these demons have in common is they have lost a sense of the awe, wonder, and beauty of the Universe. In other words, their hearts are closed.

“Those who are unaware they are walking in darkness will never seek the light.” – Bruce Lee

“Do not what is evil. Do what is good. Keep your mind pure. This is the teaching.” – Buddha

Stupidity/ CHAPTER 121

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity” – Albert Einstein

One of the problems with our modern society is that conspiracy theorists, fools, and fanatics are always so sure of themselves and busy converting others in their own images while the good people do nothing and even doubt themselves.

“Religious fanatics want people to switch off their own minds, ignore the evidence, and blindly follow a holy book based upon private ‘revelation.’” – Richard Dawkins

“A delusion is something that people believe in despite a total lack of evidence.” – Richard Dawkins

Fools and fanatics do not have the ability to discern (select what is useful or valuable and reject what is useless or worthless). Fools and fanatics just play with words. Just clever parrots full of contradictions.

Do not give fools and fanatics what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to fools and fanatics. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and attack you.

“You are destroying the word of God through your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many other things like that.” – Mark 7:13

“This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.” – Mark 7:7

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in.” – Matthew 23:13

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” – Proverbs 18:2

“Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.” – Proverbs 17:28

“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” – Proverbs 13:20

“The wise of heart will receive commandments, but a babbling fool will come to ruin.” – Proverbs 10:8

“Crush a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, yet his folly will not depart from him.” – Proverbs 27:22

The real enemies of Jesus are the Christian fanatics themselves. If Jesus were to come today, Christian fanatics would be the last to recognise him and would be queuing up to kill him again. These Christian fanatics preach about Jesus while serving Satan. Fanatical Christian missionaries are trying to defame Indian gurus and dismantle the Vedic Tradition through various methods. These crusaders have not evolved yet.

“Many will come using my name. They will say, ‘I am the Messiah, Pastor, Teacher’ and they will deceive many people. ” – Matthew 24:5.

Many profess to be Christians but they don’t understand anything about Enlightenment/Self-realisation/Union with the Universal Self. They think they are saved because they are special and believe in someone else’s beliefs.

“But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’” – Luke 13:27

Imagine the following scenario:

Fanatical missionary (F) vs. Reincarnated Jesus (RJ)
F: Do you believe in the son of God?
RJ: God is not a white male in the sky. So how can he have a son? Or is he the son of the killer god of the Old Testament and is that why he said “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.”– Luke 19:27

F: Do you believe in Jesus, God’s only son?
RJ: You mean your omnipotent God cannot have another son? What about a daughter? Or is he anti-woman? Why do you insist on God being a father and not a mother? Brahman is not a he, she, mother, or father.

F: Do you believe God sent his son?
RJ: Everything on this physical realm has a root in God. ‘Son’ implies partial realisation. We prefer the incarnation of God in human form (Avatar) instead.

F: Then do you believe Jesus is the only God?
RJ: Do you believe Mike Tyson is the only boxing champion? What about George Foreman, Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield, and other boxing champions? Just like that, Jesus is one of many Avatars/Siddhas/Buddhas/Adepts,  meaning the story of Jesus is the story of an Avatar.

“Why should we place Christ at the top and summit of the human race? Was he kinder, more forgiving, more self-sacrificing than Buddha? Was he wiser, did he meet death with more perfect calmness, than Socrates? Was he more patient, more charitable, than Epictetus? Was he a greater philosopher, a deeper thinker, than Epicurus? In what respect was he the superior of Zoroaster? Was he gentler than Lao-tsze, more universal than Confucius? Were his ideas of human rights and duties superior to those of Zeno? Did he express grander truths than Cicero? Was his mind subtler than Spinoza’s? Was his brain equal to Kepler’s or Newton’s? Was he grander in death – a sublimer martyr than Bruno? Was he in intelligence, in the force and beauty of expression, in breadth and scope of thought, in wealth of illustration, in aptness of comparison, in knowledge of the human brain and heart, of all passions, hopes and fears, the equal of Shakespeare, the greatest of the human race?” ― Robert G. Ingersoll

F: Do you believe the Father in heaven?
RJ: The heaven itself is Brahman.

F: Do you believe in his miracles?
RJ: Yes, they are Maha siddhis.

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare

Fanaticism in the name of God is the most absurd en masse madness. This is the worst form of religiously transmitted mental disease. Evil dominates in the official society under the guise of good. These people are using the concept God to mean their own false ego/false “I”/devil. They don’t know God. They have never understood the essence of their own religion. They are actually the worst enemies of the founders of their own religion. Pseudo-Christians are very dangerous to society. They are doing the work of the Devil under the guise of good. They believe in the end of the world, or the Apocalypse. And they don’t like to be proven wrong, so they want it to happen. They are making it happen so that they can have a big mansion in heaven after you die. The triumph of Christianity over paganism is the root of environmental destruction.

The more you look into organised religion institutions for God, the more you will see/find the Devil.

“And the traditional religions worry me. Their long history proves that they have not understood the meaning of the commandment: Thou shalt not kill. If we want to save this world from unimaginable destruction we should concentrate not on the faraway God, but on the heart of the individual…” – Albert Einstein

“I don’t fear God- I fear His believers….” – Stephen Hawking

Religious fanatics are so unlike the founders of their religions. In the name of God, the fanatics killed 6 million Jews. In the name God and with their diseases, the fanatics nearly wiped out 90% Native Americans and other aboriginal groups (estimates ranging from 70 million to a high of 112.5 million people). According to historians, an estimated 80 million Hindus were slaughtered by Muslims in India. The biggest genocide in human history didn’t occur in Nazi Germany, but on American soil and India. Pseudo-Christians and pseudo-Muslims testify themselves that their Abrahamic religions are false.

Thou shalt not kill the Native Americans and steal their sacred land. Thou shalt return the land to these sacred people.

Thou shalt have no fools, fanatics, con-men, pseudo/Neo-Advaitins and the evil before me.

Enter by the narrow gate and walk on the narrow path alone.

“A man may believe in all the churches in the world, he may carry in his head all the sacred books ever written, he may baptize himself in all the rivers of the Earth—still, if he has no perception of God, I would class him with the rankest atheist.

“And a man may have never entered a church or a mosque, nor performed any ceremony, but if he feels God within himself and is thereby lifted above the vanities of the world, that man is a holy man, a saint, call him what you will.” – Swami Vivekananda

“If you cannot find a good companion to walk with, walk alone, like an elephant roaming the jungle. It is better to be alone than to be with those who will hinder your progress.” – Buddha

“Better it is to walk alone; there is no companionship with fools. Walk alone and do no evil, at ease like a tusker in the woods.” – Buddha

“…It is better to be alone rather than to be with a foolish person, because the foolish person is bound to affect you. You will be with him and he will certainly infect you with his foolishness.

“I have been observing thousands of saints and mahatmas…(religious fanatics)—and I was surprised to find one thing: 99 percent of them look foolish, stupid. Something dull and dead seems to be inside them.

“There seems to be no flash of insight; no intelligence radiates around them. They look like walking graves. They have already died. They are worshipped because people worship death, and because people worship them they think they have arrived. They have not moved a single inch! They have even fallen below the ordinary humanity. This is my experience: that your so-called saints are far below the ordinary humanity as far as intelligence is concerned, awareness is concerned. They are not meditators; they don’t know what meditation is. In the name of meditation, they go on doing something else. They are utter fools!

“Buddha wants you to beware of that. It is better to be with trees and the clouds and the river and the mountains and the ocean, because they will not make you more foolish than you are; they may even help you to become a little more intelligent, because the whole existence is nothing but intelligence. If you can be in deep communion with nature you will become more intelligent. There is all around you tremendous intelligence available, but only intelligent people can feel it. The foolish person remains closed. The fool lives in his own world; that’s why he is called the idiot. The word ‘idiot’ means one who lives in his own world, one who has his own idiom, one who has his own private reality. He is closed to the real; he has his own fantasy. He lives in his dreams…” – Osho

Modern Slavery/ CHAPTER 122

“Your ancestors dragged these black people from their homes by force; and in the white man’s quest for wealth and an easy life they have been ruthlessly suppressed and exploited, degraded into slavery. The modern prejudice against blacks is the result of the desire to maintain this unworthy condition.” – Albert Einstein

Until the mid-1960s, indigenous Australians came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings.

“I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in the country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”– Lord Macaulay’s address to British Parliament on 2nd February 1835

“The Indians “are so naive and so free with their possessions that no one who has not witnessed them would believe it. When you ask for something they have, they never say no. To the contrary, they offer to share with anyone”…They would make fine servants…with fifty men we could subjugate them all…and its first messenger to the Americas.” – Christopher Columbus.

“Before our white brothers came to civilize us we had no jails. Therefore we had no criminals…We wanted to have things only in order to give them away. We had no money, and therefore a man’s worth couldn’t be measured by it. We valued the exchange of love, so we did not deal in fear. We had no written law, no attorneys or politicians, therefore we couldn’t cheat. We were in a really bad way before the white man came, and I don’t know how we managed to get along for millenniums without the basic things which, we are told, are absolutely necessary to make a current civilized society.” – Lakota Sage Lame Deer

No bombs, no crime or prison, no homeless, no debts, no stress, no pollution or poverty. And some people call them primitive.

One of the biggest lies ever pulled on humanity is the image of white Euro-American Jesus. The biggest lie of Satan in churches today is this image. White Jesus has been a symbol to justify their bloody history of conquest and genocide against other races. Racism is throughout all aspects of Christianity and is a big part of history. Christians are using Jesus as a white man to promote their white supremacy agenda.

Historically, Jews are neither black nor white, but just dark-skinned with black hair (Asiatic heritage). Modern white Jews are Europeans who just embraced Judaism but are not the actual descendants of Judah. The name “Jesus” is only about 400 years old, because the English language never had the letter “J” till then. If you look in a 1611 copy of KJV you’ll see it is spelled “Iesvs in English (“Iesous” in Greek), not Jesus. Iesous has no meaning in Hebrew; as it is not a Hebrew word. This name “Iesous” didn’t even exist until the 4th Century. In Greek, “Iesous” literally translated means “Hail Zeus”. ‘Zeus’ is the supreme deity in ancient Greek religion. In the Gospel of Peter, the name of the Messiah was Apollo and not Jesus, even though the story and the other characters were basically the same (Emperor Constantine believed he was the re-incarnated Apollo). His name was not Iésous (original 1611 King James version), and it was not Yeshua. The Codex Sinaticus (oldest complete manuscript) doesn’t mention Jesus Christ only IUXU. He was a brown, socialist, semitic Jew from Palestine, wasn’t anything that you would recognize as white. Jesus was not “white.” He didn’t speak English. Jesus was ordinary-looking, and there is nothing special in his appearance that would make him stand out. Isaiah described him in 53:2 in saying, “He had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.”

Jesus was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring humanity together. Jesus was an Avatar/Buddha (Enlightened/Self-realised human being). Jesus would more closely align himself with Hinduism and Buddhism than the Church/Christianity of today.

“If Christ were here there is one thing he would not be—a Christian.” – Mark Twain

The white, tall, blond haired, blue-eyed son of God from Hitler’s Lebensborn program is just a delusion of white supremacy and patriarchy. Christianity in its current form has very little to do with the true Jesus. Christianity has been hijacked, twisted, and distorted by false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing preaching hate, racism, division, bigotry, guilt, and fear. If Jesus were alive today, most Christians would cruelly reject him and treat him with suspicion as they do to Indian Avatars. If Jesus were to come today, Christian fanatics would be the last to recognise him. And they would be queuing up to kill him again.

Worshipping the image of a white, tall, blond haired, blue-eyed son of God from Hitler’s Lebensborn program is the worst form of idol worship (idolatry) there is.

Everything about Christianity in its current form hinges on one big lie: that Jesus was white. Most Christian can never accept the true colour of Jesus. There will be a mass exodus from Christianity when white people find out that they are worshiping an Asiatic guy from Palestine. Christianity doesn’t have a future and will become part of Hinduism.

Sai Baba materialized a few pictures of Jesus, but these pictures are symbolic. A devotee from Australia took a black-and-white photo of Jesus on the shroud of Turin to Sai Baba. Sai Baba wiped across it with his hand and the photo became a coloured image instead. Yes, it was a miracle of transmutation, but that doesn’t mean that the image is the true image of Jesus. These pictures are only meant for those devotees.

I am not literally saying there was a historical Jesus. I mean, if Jesus did exist, he would have been an Asiatic Avatar with miraculous abilities (Maha siddhis).

Slavery was never abolished. It is still in effect, only more subtle and global.

“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the Sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” – Nathan Mayer Rothschild

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” – Henry Ford

“Our entire monetary system is nothing but a form of legalized theft.” – Mike Maloney

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin…But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit.” – Josiah Charles Stamp

Mankind is being led astray by modern politics, economics, business, fanatical religions…Our entire monetary system is a Ponzi scheme, and all such pyramid schemes collapse eventually.

“There is plenty of profit being made by those who pretty much dominate and control the system…We’ve moved from the days where there was some kind of functioning democracy. It’s by now really a plutocracy.” – Noam Chomsky

“Here at home we don’t have true democracy.” Instead, “we have a monopoly of ideas that are controlled by leaders of two parties, and, though they call it two parties, it is really one philosophy.” – Ron Paul

“The preferences of the average American appear to have only a miniscule, near zero, statistically nonsignificant impact upon public policy.” – Profs. Martin Gilens of Princeton and Benjamin Page of Northwestern University, who analysed 1,799 policy issues

When you vote, you are actually voting for one philosophy of wealthy individuals (typically corporate executives and Wall Street moguls) and of big corporations.

“21% of the landmass of Earth is in control of just 15 landlords. 10 corporations control almost everything we buy. 183 multi-national companies are sitting as a snake on 85% of the Earth resources. 50% of the world population is living below poverty line. And the 2% corporate capitalist elite class is oppressing & exploiting the rest 98% of world population by the accumulation & concentration of Earth resources in their hands through the control of paper-money. And there are 6 corporations which control the maximum media around us.” – Unknown

“We’ve arranged a society based on science and technology, in which nobody understands anything about science and technology. And this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces. Who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it?” – Carl Sagan

The people had to be educated and they had to practice their skepticism and their education, otherwise, we don’t run the government, the government runs us.” – Carl Sagan

A great deal of the suffering which humanity undergoes is totally unnecessary. It is inflicted by humans on humans. People inflict suffering on others in the selfish pursuit of extreme materialism (money, power, pleasure, and so on). All the problems we face today are human-created problems.

Modern society is run by a few with the old Stone Age hunter-gatherer mentality. These hunter-gatherers in positions of power and influence are exploiting people while pretending to help them. The “ruling elite” do not really care about your wellbeing. They want more and more. They are still evolving animal-human doings (not human-divine beings).

This world’s run by a few materialistic, power-hungry, profits-over-people individuals who own the big banks and corporations and the media. The so-called “privileged elite” are dictating the way that the world around us works.

“Not until the creation and maintenance of decent conditions of life for all people are recognized and accepted as a common obligation of all people and all countries—not until then shall we, with a certain degree of justification, be able to speak of human kind as civilized.” – Albert Einstein

“It is symptomatic to the current human condition that the system we live under sees every aspect of Earth, from land, sea, flora and fauna, even other human beings, as a commodity with a monetary value. We have allowed corporations to claim ownership over our common resources, selling back to us what was naturally ours to begin with. Furthermore, we are forced into working for these corporations to obtain the promissory notes of another corporation to be able to buy back what should be free to all. If we were more honest with ourselves we would call this what it really is: SLAVERY.” – Unknown

“It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry.” –Buckminster Fuller

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest.” – Buckminster Fuller

The system keeps people busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals with mind-numbing jobs where people do not have a clue what they are doing with their precious lives or what is really going on in this consumerist world. People don’t have time or energy to relax and are spiritually depleted.

You are a slave born into this prison world of consumerism. If you don’t feel that there is something wrong with our modern world of consumerism, then you are still asleep.

“Once you become alive, once your life energy arises, you will suddenly feel that you fit with existence, but you don’t fit with the society” – Osho

People are conditioned to believe that they need so many consumer goods, when all we need is enough time to relax and enjoy being.

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“There is enough food, water, energy and natural resources on the planet for every human being.” – Gary Mitchell Weinstein

Extinction of Human Being/ CHAPTER 123

The greatest threat to humanity is the belief that everything is OK (All is well) and the government/God/Avatars or others will save it.

“The greatest danger to our future is apathy.” – Jane Goodall

“This is the first century in the world’s history when the biggest threat is from humanity.” – Lord Rees (the former president of the Royal Society of British Astronomy)

“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression. It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.” – Stephen Hawking

“Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity—in all this vastness—there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known, so far, to harbor life. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot (planet Earth), the only home we’ve ever known.” – Carl Sagan

“The world has suffered untold damage due to its ‘mad’ rulers and ‘mad’ guides.” – Sai Baba

“What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?” – Rep. Ron Paul, US House, Feb. 13, 2009

People don’t want wars. Politicians, bankers, and corporations do.

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous.” – Dresden James

“A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by it’s host, one that can make it’s host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.” – Jason Read

There is an epic battle between good and evil all around and within us, yet most people are completely unaware! The “ruling elite” have deliberately held back humanity from its rightful way of spiritual evolution in order to feed their own insatiable appetite for political power, riches, and attention.

Few dominate the minds of the masses. In our daily lives, whether in the sphere of work, politics, business, religion, or spirituality, people are dominated by the relatively small number of strong individuals at the top. It is more like a pyramid, and people at every level control others below them in the pyramid. They have managed to totally repress the true universal spirituality. They are part of the Universe (and therefore part of God), but like the cancer cells in the body. If you accept the cancer cells in your physical body, you die. Only by removing the cancer cells can you survive. It is the same for the survival of humanity. When confronted by evil, we must speak out. We must never passively allow evil to triumph in our society.

“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the Earth.” – William Faulkner

One must do more than be passive and easy-going. Too much mercy is but weakness and the fading out of the will. If there were no strong hand to come to the aid of goodness in the world, then evil would multiply unchecked, eventually smothering all that is good.

“So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.” – Voltaire

“You assist an unjust administration most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil administration never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his whole soul. Disobedience of the laws of an evil state is therefore a duty.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” – Martin Luther King, Jr

“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” – Albert Einstein

“All that is needed for the forces of evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

Whatever you put up with, you end up with. If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem.

You have the moral responsibility to disobey unjust man-made laws. The Self-realised/Enlightened ones will resist an evil system of imperialism and fanatical religions (disguised form of Satanism) with his/her whole Being.

“To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When the good are associated with the wicked and do not oppose them, they share the responsibility for the deeds of the evil doers…It is only when we resist acts of unrighteousness and injustice and try to put down malpractices in society that we can claim to be assisting in the task of restoring Dharma… When evil and injustice and violence are being perpetrated, if individuals look on unconcerned, they must be regarded as accomplices in the crimes. In the end they also suffer as much as the criminals. By their passive association, they provide encouragement to the evildoers.” – Sai Baba

“The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” – Plato

“Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state becomes lawless or corrupt.” –Mahatma Gandhi

Are we really going to let a bunch of greedy, selfish, ignorant people (those who rule the world) destroy the planet and lead mankind to self-destruction? We are 7 billion and they are just a few thousand. Who needs who? Be like Gandhi. It is so simple.

The richest 1% own more than the rest of world does. The 85 richest people in the world have as much wealth as the 3.5 billion poorest people. There are 1,826 billionaires around the world (53 in UK, 90 in India, 536 in USA). Nobody is focusing on the most important issues of our modern time. The world’s problems remain unsolved.

The World’s Unsolved Problems:
1. Population growth outstripping resources worldwide
2. Environmental destruction/deforestation
3. Pollution of the air, water, and soil
4. Natural resources running out or being degraded
5. Unequal distribution of financial resources
6. The overwhelming power of multinational corporations over governments
7. Nuclear weapons; the imminent danger of worldwide catastrophe
8. Military means and thinking as a way of resolving political problems
9. Genocides
10. Fundamentalism and narrowness, exclusivism, particularism, terrorism
11. Extinction of species due to human activity, either intentionally or by accident
12. Climate change
13. Racism
14. Pornography and Patriarchy: The enslavement and degradation of women
15. Imperialism
16. Avatarphobia, Self-realisationphobia, Meditationphobia, Truthphobia
…and more.

The mainstream media seems to be deliberately distracting people from the reality of some of the world’s most serious problems. People are completely unaware of what is really happening. Nobody is focusing on the most important issues of our modern time. There are so many difficult problems, with so few solutions in sight. People are so trapped in the distraction and deception that they won’t wake up before it is too late.

Ecological, economy, and other collapses are just around the corner, and we are busy arguing over trivial matters or competing with each other for the spotlight.

Humanity has lost sight of what’s most important, and this has led to all these problems and suffering. All is not well. People are suffering. We need to work together on these critical tasks or we will perish together as fools.

“Humanity is going to require a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive.” – Albert Einstein

Some deluded pseudo/Neo-Advaitins are even teaching “all is well and the world doesn’t need your help.” This is the problem with the society. Just look how divided we are.

Mind-created problems of the world cannot be solved by the same mind, only by higher awareness beyond the mind.

It should be obvious to everyone by now that God does not reach out of the sky to stop false flag operations, wars, genocides, to feed the starving, or to end poverty. God never reaches down to man (humanity). Man must climb up to Brahman through self-transformation and save himself.

If we truly wish to see the end of this, we must as a WHOLE people change the manner in which we treat each other. We are ALL, to some degree, responsible. This is the collective karma. Enlightened masters (Avatars/Siddhas) have no more nor less responsibility in these circumstances than any other human being. The beginning, middle, and end of this process of change resides within each and every one of us—it is not just the responsibility of the few.

“We must begin with the heart of man—with his conscience—and the values of conscience can only be manifested by selfless service to mankind.” – Albert Einstein

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall

Save your soul first, and then be an inspiration to others and simultaneously do what you can to change this society. Selfless service to mankind is the sign of the wise. Create a better world for all of us and future generations/future incarnations. Don’t leave it just the same as you have found it—make it better. Make it become more universal.

Selfless service unto humanity is service unto yourself. Selfless service unto humanity is service unto me (Universal Self).

“If the legends fall silent, who will teach the children of our ways?” – Chief Dan George

“Because whatever noble persons do, others follow. Whatever standard they set up, the world follows…” – Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, 3.21)

“…If Jnanis are inactive, how are ordinary mortals to save themselves? They will have no guide and will lose themselves in the easy paths of sensory pleasures…The wise have to do and get done, see and show, so that the rest might be persuaded to follow the example set by them.” – Sai Baba

“There is no enlightenment without helping the humanity” – Swami kaleshwar (1973 – 2012)

“One must set the example, in actual practice.” – Sai Baba

“The world can be saved only by the power of the Aathma, inherent in everyone; this has to be tapped by individual saadhana, and by the Grace of God which can be won only through love, purity and service. If these two are absent, Pralaya (devastation) is certain; it is inevitable. “ – Sai Baba

“The problems we face, did not come down from the heavens. They are made, they are made by bad human decisions, and good human decisions can change them.” – Bernie Sanders

Krishna urges Arjuna to perform his ‘dharma’ to protect humanity from decaying into adharmic/ non-righteous activities.

True Avatars work tirelessly to forward the spiritual evolution of humanity.

We are comforted by the thought that some among us can make everything okay and absolve us all of any responsibility. But this is merely a comforting illusion and not a reality.

Most people are just waiting for the few to change the society so that they can then slip into it. They don’t want do it together. That is the problem.

If we continue the way we are going, humanity will become extinct because of consumerism/commercialism.

Unless we solve these problems, we will perish together as fools (don’t be vain—planet Earth will survive just fine beyond us). God does not intervene directly. God only intervenes through us. It is our responsibility.

Ancient Egypt/ CHAPTER 124

Here are some of the teachings inscribed in the temples of Luxor, founded in 1400 BCE (Ancient Egypt):

“The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth is Nature.”

“Man, know yourself…and you shalt know the gods.”

“Not the greatest Master can go even one step for his disciple; in himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.”

“There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.”

“It is better not to know and to know that one does not know, than presumptuously to attribute some random meaning to symbols.”

“If you search for the laws of harmony, you will find knowledge.”

“If you are searching for a Neter (Kingdom of Heaven), observe Nature!”

“What reveals itself to me ceases to be mysterious for me alone: if I unveil it to anyone else, he hears mere words which betray the living sense: Profanation, but never revelation.”

“The body is the house of god. That is why it is said, ‘Man know yourself.’”

“True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awaking of consciousness which goes through successive stages.”

“The man who knows how to lead one of his brothers towards what he has known may one day be saved by that very brother.”

“Man must learn to increase his sense of responsibility and of the fact that everything he does will have its consequences.”

“Leave him in error who loves his error.”

“Every man is rich in excuses to safeguard his prejudices, his instincts, and his opinions.”

“An answer brings no illumination unless the question has matured to a point where it gives rise to this answer which thus becomes its fruit. Therefore learn how to put a question.”

“The first concerning the ‘secrets’: all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.”

“The second concerning the ‘way’: the seeker has need of a Master to guide him and lift him up when he falls, to lead him back to the right way when he strays.”

“Understanding develops by degrees.”

“As to deserving, know that the gift of heaven is free; this gift of Knowledge is so great that no effort whatever could hope to ‘deserve’ it.”

“If the Master teaches what is error, the disciple’s submission is slavery ; if he teaches truth, this submission is ennoblement.”

“The way of knowledge is narrow.”

“The only active force that arises out of possession is fear of losing the object of possession.”

“For knowledge…you should know that peace is an indispensable condition of getting it.”

“When the governing class isn’t chosen for quality it is chosen for material wealth: this always means decadence, the lowest stage a society can reach.”

“We mustn’t confuse mastery with mimicry, knowledge with superstitious ignorance.”

“Experience will show you, a Master can only point the way.”

“All organs work together in the functioning of the whole.”

“A man’s heart is his own Neter.”

“Routine and prejudice distort vision. Each man thinks his own horizon is the limit of the world.”

“You will free yourself when you learn to be neutral and follow the instructions of your heart without letting things perturb you. This is the way of Maat.”

“Judge by cause, not by effect.”

“Growth in consciousness doesn’t depend on the will of the intellect or its possibilities but on the intensity of the inner urge.”

“Men need images. Lacking them they invent idols. Better then to found the images on realities that lead the true seeker to the source.”

“Maat, who links universal to terrestrial, the divine with the human is incomprehensible to the cerebral intelligence.”

“Always watch and follow nature.”

“The plant reveals what is in the seed.”

“Popular beliefs on essential matters must be examined in order to discover the original thought.”

“If you would know yourself, take yourself as starting point and go back to its source; your beginning will disclose your end.”

“Seek peacefully, you will find.” 

“It is no use whatever preaching Wisdom to men: you must inject it into their blood.”

“Knowledge is consciousness of reality. Reality is the sum of the laws that govern nature and of the causes from which they flow.”

“Social good is what brings peace to family and society.”

“Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom.”

“Altruism is the mark of a superior being.”

“All is within yourself. Know your most inward self and look for what corresponds with it in nature.”

“The seed cannot sprout upwards without simultaneously sending roots into the ground.”

“The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree…The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.”

“Grain must return to the earth, die, and decompose for new growth to begin.”

The Challenge of the Qur’an or Tahaddi/ CHAPTER 125

The Qur’an challenges and invites people to compete with its teachings and to produce something like it. It says if you think a human being wrote the Qur’an, then produce a surah like the Prophet (Qur’an 2:23), produce a book without contradictions (Qur’an 4:82), produce ten surah of the Qur’an (Qur’an 11:13), produce the whole of the Qur’an (Qur’an 17:88), produce a phrase like verses in the Qur’an (Qur’an 52:34) or news of the invisible world (Qur’an 11:49). Pseudo-Muslims believe the Qur’an is the final revelation of God. Muslims claim that if you don’t produce a better one, we must accept their beliefs.

As long as you have surrendered to God, they call you a Muslim anyway, so you are not doing anything wrong by producing a better teaching than the Qur’an. I encourage others to take this challenge and produce a better teaching for the benefit of all mankind.

Both the Bible and the Qur’an claim to be an all-sufficient book with no need for anything else in regards to how we should live our lives and have eternal salvation. Really? Can following the teachings of the Qur’an/Bible be enough for eternal salvation? No.

“However unpleasant the truth may be, it is better to face it once for all, to get used to it, and to proceed to build your life in accordance with it.” – Bertrand Russell

Most Muslims and Christians have been deceived by their own religious leaders and propagandists because the leaders themselves are not prophets (Enlightened/Self-realised beings). They divert your attention from the real issues by introducing irrelevant issues. Don’t rely on others to do the research and make up your mind for you. YOU are responsible for investigating the different teachings, and to discern truth from falsehood. YOU must do some serious soul searching for the truth. Don’t leave it in someone else’s hands, because there is only one right answer in terms of what happens when we die. You’d better figure out what that is before it is too late.

Pseudo-Muslims (M) vs. Human Being (HB)

M :>You are a Muslim.<

HB: No. You are a Hindu or a pagan. The ancestors of more than 500 million Muslims in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India were Hindus. They were forced to convert to Islam. They did not have a choice. They either had to embrace Islam or die by the sword. They are essentially Hindus.

According to Islam, the definition of a Muslim is anyone who surrenders their will to the One God of the Universe. They can be from the followers of the previous messengers and scriptures, irrespective of whether or not they believe in the veracity of the Qur’an or Muhammad. All those who have embraced the one universal religion/spirituality are called Muslims by the Qur’an. This is why the Qur’an calls Jesus a Muslim even though he lived before Prophet Muhammad.

“And [remember] when I inspired to the disciples, “Believe in Me and in My messenger Jesus.” They said, “We have believed, so bear witness that indeed we are Muslims [in submission to Allah].” – Qur’an 5:111 

“The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in God and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.” – Qur’an 2:285

Hinduism is the world’s oldest living religion. Does that make everyone Hindus? How can you escape the fact that Hinduism is the world’s oldest living religion is ultimately the result of the will of Allah?

 

M: > Muslims worship the same god as Christians and Jews. Allah is merely another name for God. La ilaha illa’llah (There is no god but Allah). Jesus was a Muslim and his religion was Islam.<

HB: Yes and No. Yes in the sense there is only one God, so you are worshiping the same one God, the God the Hindus/Ancient Egyptian discovered thousands of years ago before Islam. Words/concepts are only symbols for what we mean. It is their meaning that matters. You can use the word “Allah” to mean the monotheistic God. There’s nothing wrong with that.

No, because what “Allah” means to Muslims now has no bearing on what it meant before Islam/Muhammad. Allah was already known to the pagan Arabs. Allah was the God of the Sabians (pagan Arabs).  Al-Lāt, Manāt, and Al-‘Uzzá were considered to be the three  daughters of  Allah in Nabataean religion.

“The Prophet and his companions are referred to as ‘These are the Sabians’ comparing Mohammed to the Sabians…The polytheists ( Sabiya Mushrikun) used to say of the Prophet and his companions these are the Sabians’ comparing them to them, because the Sabians who live Jaziartal-Mawsil (i.e., Iraq) would say ‘La ilaha ila Allah.” – Abd al-Rahman Ibn Zayd

The ninety-nine names of God in Islam describe ninety-nine different aspects of God. The seventy-two names of God in Judaism are seventy-two aspects of God. The 360 idols around the Kaaba in Mecca before Mohammed and the beginning of Islam were symbols used as names for different aspects of God. Hindus do not literally worship millions of separate gods. They meditate on different aspects of the one infinite God because the one non-dual nature of Reality/God (The undifferentiated Universal Consciousness) is incomprehensible, unknowable. You cannot pray to it. First you must meditate on different aspects of the one infinite God. Then you must embody them to some extent, and only then after years of practice can you live in a state of constant awe and wonder, humility and reverence.

“Ekam evadvitiyam” “He is One only without a second.” – Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1

While many believe Moses to be the founder of monotheistic belief, the real pioneer was an Egyptian pharaoh called Akhenaten (1352-1336 BC).

Muslims claim Allah is omnipotent and omniscient but separate from the Universe/Creation (not omnipresent/immanent). And the concept of universal love as one of Allah’s attributes is missing from the ninety-nine names of Allah. Infinity by definition is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and universal love. If Allah is infinite, then Allah is omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and universal love. Muhammad’s revelation was only possible because of immanence/ omnipresence. Only the uppermost aspect of God is unknowable.

There is only one God, but Muslims claim there is only their god, Allah, and that’s the problem. If God is one, how can you talk about other gods or a false god? So you’re saying there are other gods, and this is your definition of monotheism. So, you Muslims who killed eighty-million Hindus and converted 500 million Hindus to Islam by the sword in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India, you think you understand God better than Hindus? No, you don’t.  If God is One, why are you trying to convert everyone by force to Allah as if there are two Gods? Is this your definition of monotheism? Infinity/God/Allah is real, but your understanding of Allah/ God is false.

 

M: > Prophet Muhammad may have existed as a semi-legendary figure. <

HB: All the true prophets/messengers of God/swamis/sons of God/Messiahs should be respected, but not idolised, and Prophet Muhammad is no exception. Idolisation can lead you astray, and have you doing the wrong things. Focus on the universal message, not the messenger, and become the messenger by being your core self.

There is no evidence for the historical existence of Jesus in 126 historical texts written in the first to third centuries.

“What sorts of things do pagan authors from the time of Jesus have to say about him? Nothing. As odd as it may seem, there is no mention of Jesus at all by any of his pagan contemporaries. There are no birth records, no trial transcripts, no death certificates; there are no expressions of interest, no heated slanders, no passing references – nothing. In fact, if we broaden our field of concern to the years after his death – even if we include the entire first century of the Common Era – there is not so much as a solitary reference to Jesus in any non-Christian, non-Jewish source of any kind. I should stress that we do have a large number of documents from the time – the writings of poets, philosophers, historians, scientists, and government officials, for example, not to mention the large collection of surviving inscriptions on stone and private letters and legal documents on papyrus. In none of this vast array of surviving writings is Jesus’ name ever so much as mentioned.”– Bart Ehrman

Paul was just describing his “Imaginary Jesus.”  If Jesus didn’t exist, who is the Jesus of the Qur’an? Just another imaginary Jesus. So what about Prophet Muhammad?

Here is an example of “circular argument.”

“Muhammad existed.”

“How do you know?”

“Because the Hadith says so.”

“How do you know the Hadith is correct?”

“Because it was inspired by Muhammad.”

That a majority of Muslims “believe” Muhammad existed doesn’t make it so. No one “knows” that Muhammad existed. Let’s first examine what it means to “know” something, as opposed to “believing” something.

Yes, you can say that Prophet Muhammad existed as a semi-legendary figure, but if you claim he was a historical person literally, then the burden of proof rests on you to prove it. There is no historical evidence that a religion called Islam or a prophet named Muhammad existed at all during Muhammad’s lifetime. The earliest biography of Muhammad  was written by Ibn Ishaq (died 773), at least 125 years after the death of his protagonist. Most of the Hadiths were not recorded until 200-300 years after the death of the Prophet. No authentic core of information going back to the time of the Prophet. The Qur’an doesn’t mention anything about a “historical” Muhammad. The name “Muhammad” appears only four times in the Qur’an as a title, “the praised one” (like Christ), accompanied by no personal information. That really could refer to anyone. According to the Qur’an, the name of the messenger after Jesus is Ahmad.

“Jesus, the son of Mary, said, ‘A messenger will come after me, named Ahmad.’” – Qur’an 61:6

“And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.” – Qur’an 61:6

The name “Muhammad” was also used as a title by ancient Arab Christians as the coins in Syria bearing Christian iconography shows. Everything we know about Muhammad are legends that come from centuries after the time of Muhammad. Most scholars now think he was only constructed out of different stories around 690, and that he existed as a compilation of several characters.

The Hadith contains lots of contradiction both within itself and against the Qur’an. Without the Hadith, you don’t know anything about Muhammad. But Muslim scholars now agree that the vast majority of Hadiths are fabrications.

The only available knowledge about the life and history of Mohammed comes from the Hadith, but the Hadith are full of contradictions, confusions, inconsistencies, and anomalies, and rarely can be put together into a logical, coherent order of events. Bukhari himself rejected 99% of the Hadith that he came into contact with, showing how much corruption entered Islam. But even this 1% is fabrications stories invented by people. The Hadith writers did not even read the message of the Qur’an before they started writing. Bukhari had a very different idea of Islam than the author of the Qur’an. How can you even take Bukhari seriously? He was not a prophet. We simply do not have a choice but to admit that the traditional sources are unreliable. Scholars conclude that the Arab religion needed a messianic-style prophet like Jesus, so the Hadith writers invented a prophet in their own image.

According to Muslims, the Qur’an is a divine revelation and the word of God, but the Hadith are just historical accounts written by different people. But there is no Islam without the Hadiths. The religion of Islam is built upon the five pillars, but four of the five pillars of Islam are from the Hadith (Bukhari), not the Qur’an. If you reject the Hadiths, then you are in turn rejecting Islam. If the Qur’an is the word of God, why do Muslims follow the Hadiths, which are the word of men?

If the 1500-year-old Gospel of Barnabas is fake, then how can we trust the gospels or the Qur’an? The oldest Qur’an manuscript, which consists of two parchment leaves, now owned by Birmingham University, has been carbon dated from 568 A.D. to 645 A.D. It predates the founding of Islam by Muhammad. According to Islamic tradition, the Qur’an was compiled in its definitive form in the year 652 by the caliph ‘Uthman. This also refutes the claim that each word was dictated by the archangel Gabriel to Muhammad.

“If the Prophet Muhammed did not exist then there would be no reason to be a Muslim at all… and the Qur’an would be one of the biggest fakes in history.” – Dr. Shabir Ally

The Qur’an contains some truth, and all Muslims are potential prophets. The seed of prophethood is within all of you. The true prophets of Islam must be the embodiment of all four archangels (Uriel, Raphael, Michael, and Gabriel), the embodiment of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and universal love (but not literally to the fullness while on this physical realm).  A true prophet of Islam must be an individual of high moral integrity, one who serves and lives for God. He must be a prophet of freedom, compassion, and human rights. But the Muhammed of the Hadiths is not the true prophet of the Qur’an/Arabia. This Muhammed of the Hadiths failed to show any love or genuine compassion, and is one of the worst examples of human behaviour: beheadings, deceit, war mongering, etc. Why would anyone want to emulate such a character? I wouldn’t recommend him as a role model to anyone. Would you?

 

M: >The Qur’an has been preserved with miraculous perfection and without the slightest variation or error. Allah preserved the Qur’an from deviation and distortion, so there’s only one version of the Qur’an in this world. It is a miracle of the Qur’an that no change has occurred in a single word, a single [letter of the] alphabet, a single punctuation mark, or a single diacritical mark in the text of the Qur’an during the last fourteen centuries.<

HB: All the so-called holy books are only pointers and not an end in themselves, and the Qur’an is no exception. It is your ability to discern what is most important. You need to search out your ability to learn from these many different sources. One must discern to the best of one’s capacity, and develop the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff (select what is useful or valuable and reject what is useless or worthless).

The so-called holy books did not drop out of heaven one day. None of them have been preserved perfectly. Perfect preservation does not logically imply the word of God or the truth. The book “In the Shadow of the Sword” by Tom Holland has been preserved with miraculous perfection and without the slightest variation or error, and will still be around 1,000 years from now. Does it make this book a miracle from God? Do we worship Shakespeare for his linguistic brilliance?

The oldest Qur’an manuscript, which consists of two parchment leaves, now owned by Birmingham University, contains only parts of Suras (chapters) eighteen to twenty. It is an incomplete manuscript. God didn’t preserve it. God doesn’t really care about these things. God does not write these so-called holy books, nor preserve them. There are no complete copies of the Qur’an dating from 650 AD. The earliest complete Qur’an manuscript, the Kufi manuscript in Kuwait, is dated to 393 AH (1002 CE), 370 years after the death of the Prophet. According to most scholars, the Qur’an Muslims use today, the 1924 Egyptian Canon does not go back to ‘Uthman or Muhammad. There is no original complete Qur’an to show us the ‘correct’ Qur’an. So claiming the Qur’an is unchanged is meaningless.

“Just as We had revealed [scriptures] to the separators Who have made the Qur’an into portions. So by your Lord, We will surely question them all.” – Qur’an 15:90-92

“Many (of the passages) of the Qur’an that were sent down were known by those who died on the day of Yamama . . . but they were not known (by those who) survived them, nor were they written down, nor had Abu Bakr, Umar or ‘Uthman (by that time) collected the Qur’an, nor were they found with even one (person) after them.” – Ibn Abi Dawud, Kitab al-Masahif

“’Let none of you say, “I have got the whole of the Qur’an.” How does he know what all of it is? MUCH OF THE QUR’AN HAS GONE. Let him say instead, “I have got what has survived.’” – Abdullah bin ‘Umar

The same narration cited in Abu Ubaid’s Kitab Fadail-al-Qur’an:

 “Let none of you say, ‘I have learned the whole of the Koran,’ for how does he know what the whole of it is, when much of it has disappeared? Let him rather say, ‘I have learned what is extant thereof.’”

Aishah (Muhammad’s youngest wife), is also said to have reported:

“The verse of the stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.” – Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal. vol. 6. p. 269; Sunan Ibn Majah, p. 626; Ibn Qutbah, Tawil Mukhtalafi ‘l-Hadith (Cairo: Maktaba al-Kulliyat al-Azhariyya. 1966) p. 310; As-Suyuti, ad-Durru ‘l-Manthur, vol. 2. p. 13

 “Surat al-Ahzab (xxxiii) used to be recited in the time of the Prophet with two hundred verses, but when ‘Uthman wrote out the codices he was unable to procure more of it than there is in it today [i.e. 73 verses].” –  Abu Ubaid, Kitab Fada’il-al-Qur’an—A’isha

“He (Abu Bakr) began the project of collecting it from (what was written on) palmed stalks, thin white stones and also from the men who knew it by heart, till I found the last Verse of Surat At-Tauba (Repentance) with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari, and I did not find it with anybody other than him.” – In Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 6, book 61, number 509

‘“Hudhaifa was afraid of their (the Muslims of Syria and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Qur’an, so he said to ‘Uthman, “O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Qur’an) as Jews and the Christians did before.” So ‘Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, “Send us the manuscripts of the Qur’an so that we may compile the Qur’anic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you.” Hafsa sent it to ‘Uthman. ‘Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit, ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Said bin Al-As and ‘AbdurRahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies. ‘Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, “In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Qur’an, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Qur’an was revealed in their tongue.” They did so, and when they had written many copies, ‘Uthman returned the original manuscripts to Hafsa. ‘Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur’anic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt.” – Sahih al-Bukhari: vol. 6, bk. 61, no. 510

Abu Bakr’s Qur’an compilation and the other versions made by the companions of Muhammad were destroyed because they contained variants, even though Muhammad had commissioned several of them to teach the Qur’an. ‘Uthman is reported to have destroyed/ burned all the variant Qur’ans that did not conform to his compilation.

Had ‘Uthman not standardised the Qur’an, other collections of the Qur’an could have remained until today. How do you know that ‘Uthman’s standardization was better than any of the others? You don’t.

“The people have been guilty of deceit in the reading of the Qur’an. I like it better to read according to the recitation of him [i.e. Muhammad] whom I love more than that of Zayd Ibn Thabit” – Ibn Masud  (Ibn Sa’d, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Vol. 2, p. 444.)

And yet there are at least two ‘versions’ of the Qur’an out there today. Compare the Hafs and Warsh versions of the Qur’an to see if they are identical. Compare the Tashkent MSS with the modern Egyptian Qur’an in five passages: 2:284, 2:283, 3:37, 3:109 and 5:119. There are some conflicting manuscripts, deletions, and additions on the text of the Qur’an like any other ancient holy book. The differences are small, but they are there. These variants do change the meaning of the text but do not change the doctrine or teaching of the Qur’an.

“These variants, however – I have counted more than two hundred that make a difference in the meaning – are important in that they tell us there was no solid oral tradition stemming directly from the Prophet to prove which variant was correct.” – Professor James A. Bellamy

“The Qor’an contains sentences which are incomplete and not fully intelligible without the aid of commentaries; foreign words, unfamiliar Arabic words, and words used with other than the normal meaning; adjectives and verbs inflected without observance of the concords of number and number; illogically and ungrammatically applied pronouns which sometimes have no referent; and predicates which in rhymed passages are often remote from the subjects …To sum up, more than one hundred Qor’anic aberrations from the normal rules and structure of Arabic have been noted.” – Ali Dashti

The fact is that a fifth of the Qur’anic text makes no sense in the context in which they appear due to its poetic nature and classical Arabic. Classical Arabic is not the same Arabic that people speak today. What many Muslims do not know is that even Muslim scholars do not understand the Qur’an. Most Classical Arabic words have several meanings. Many already-established Classical Arabic words have taken on new and different meanings, invented by modern Arabs over time. So unless the interpreter is also a prophet, you don’t know the true meanings. The original meaning ascribed to most Classical Arabic words in the Qur’an is known only to the author of the Qur’an. How would you know what the author meant by these Classical Arabic words? The Qur’an is such a complex book that most Muslim scholars who translate it give it their interpretation of it. The average Muslim has been deceived by the false interpretations of these Muslim religious leaders.

Enlightened beings can perceive the true meanings directly and can express it simply in modern-day language without reading any of these so-called holy books. True spirituality is not about “belief.” It’s about direct personal experience gained through practice. It’s not about what anybody else tells you…it’s about what you prove or disprove through your own personal effort.

Do Muslims really abide by the apparent teachings of their own scriptures? Not really, because they don’t know the true meanings.

Of course, there are significant differences between the gospels compared to Qur’anic variants. But what is really relevant is the true meaning of the passages in the Qur’an, and that is lost. The original and true meanings of the Qur’an have not been preserved, and subsequently lost, unless you can perceive the true meaning directly. If you can perceive the true meaning directly, then you are equal to the Prophet Muhammad. But the problem is that Pseudo-Muslims believe Muhammad was the last prophet.

 

M: > No other book in the world can match the Qur’an. The Qur’an is the literal word of God, which He revealed to His Prophet Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel. The publication of the Qur’an is the only miracle performed by Muhammad. <

HB: The publication of the Qur’an is the only miracle performed by Muhammad is also denied by the Qur’an itself, because Muhammad was not a miracle worker:

“And they say, why are not signs, miracles, sent down to him, to Mohammed, from his lord?” Says, ‘Oh, Mohammed, the signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.’” – (Qur’an 29:50)

Just because a book is correct on some scientific or historical point does not mean it is the word of God, and it doesn’t mean the whole book is correct.

The Qur’an contains major scientific errors, not scientific miracles. The contradictions, inconsistencies, and errors in the Qur’an makes its validity in question. Qur’anic embryology was already known to ancient scientist such as Hippocrates, Aristotle, and Galen. And it is still inaccurate scientific information, proven wrong by modern science. There are too many scientific and mathematical errors in the Qur’an to even mention. Here are some:

The sun sets in a muddy pond (Qur’an 18:86). Stars are ‘missiles’ that are shot at ‘devils’ (Qur’an 67:5). The Earth was created in six days (Qur’an 50:38). The Earth was created before the heavens with its stars (Qur’an 2:29). Semen is ejected from between the backbone and the ribs (Qur’an 86:5-7). The bones of the fetus are created before the flesh (Qur’an 23:14). Embryos are created from ‘mixed’ semen (Qur’an 76:2). Man was created from a clot of blood (Qur’an 96:1-2). The Earth is flat (Qur’an 20:53). The Earth is ‘fixed’ (Qur’an 27:61).

If the Qur’an contains just one spiritual error, one historical error, or one scientific error, then the Qur’an is not the divine revelation, the word of God, and the absolute truth, as Pseudo-Muslims claim.

The teaching in the Qur’an predate Islam. The author of the Qur’an didn’t bring anything new to the world but correcting a few verses of the Bible. Archaeology has debunked many stories in the Bible, but the Qur’an says to accept the Bible. Doesn’t that make parts of the Qur’an false?

The Qur’an affirms that the Torah and the gospel were available at the time of Muhammad, and the Christians and Jews were living in and nearby Arabia at that time.

The people of the Book used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith (Hadith 9.460)

“And I will write down (my mercy) for those who are righteous and give alms and who believe in our signs; who follow the apostle, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written in the Torah and the Gospel THAT IS WITH THEM.”– Sura 7:156-157

“All food was lawful to the children of Israel except what Israel made unlawful for itself before the Torah was revealed. Say, `BRING the TORAH and READ it, if you are men of truth.’ If any, after this, invent a lie and attribute it to God, they are indeed transgressors.”– Sura 3:93-94

“Rafi b. Haritha and Sallam b. Mishkam and Malik b. al-Sayf and Rafi b. Huraymila came to him [Muhammad] and said: ‘Do you not allege that you follow the religion of Abraham and believe in the Torah which we have and testify that it is the truth from God?’ He replied, ‘Certainly, but…’ ”–  Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah

“Muhammad is all ears. If anyone tells him something he believes it.”– Ishaq:243

 “Do you not see that Muhammad commands his Companions with something and then forbids them from the same and commands them to the exact opposite? One day he says something and the following day he retracts it. This Qur’an is nothing but the speech of Muhammad who has invented it.”– Al-Wahidi on 16:101

“They say, ‘Fairy-tales of the ancients that he has had written down, so that they are recited to him at the dawn and in the evening.”– Qur’an 25:5

“We know indeed that they say “It is a man that teaches him.”– Qur’an 16:103-104

These responses shows that the tribesmen already knew these folk tales and myths, and had heard them before. Religion in pre-Islamic Arabia was a mix of Christianity, Judaism, and Zoroastrianism. All religions borrow some of their ideas from pagan sources,or the one universal religion/spirituality, and adapt some material for their new dispensation, and Islam is no exception.The author of the Qur’an loved to tell the stories of the Bible, with many distortions, amendments, a few corrections, and some bizarre additions to the familiar folk tales and myths from Mishnah, New Testament Apocrypha, Talmud, etc. The author of the Qur’an borrowed their beliefs from Mishnah, New Testament Apocrypha, Talmud, etc. and repeated them as the word of God (“revelation”).

“ Waraqa (Muhammad’s wife’s cousin) had been converted to Christianity in the Pre-Islamic Period and used to write Arabic and write of the Gospel in Arabic as much as Allah wished him to write.”– Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith – 6.478

“Khadija had told Waraqa Naufal who was her cousin and a Christian who had studied the scriptures and was a scholar ……”–  Ibn Sa’d. p 82, 83

This is how the author of the Qur’an was influenced. Modern scholars have accused the author of the Qur’an with borrowing stories and religious material from Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism and repeating them, because we see the evidence of this borrowing and referring to local myths, not real “revelation” from God. The real issue here is that the author of Qur’an didn’t have the ability to discern between truth and myth, to distill and simplify the ancient wisdom. Islam is not a coherent and complete religion. Most Islamic doctrine is political, not spiritual. There really isn’t much wisdom in the Quran. It mostly consists of repetitive verses describing houris and wine and sex in paradise for those pious Muslims, and waging offensive war against non-Muslims and enemies for the purpose of spreading Islam. No real wisdom, no narratives, and poor ethics. You’ll get way more out of reading Greek philosophers such as Aristotle, Socrates, or Plato. Or just Osho.

 “NOTHING is said to you (O Muhammad) except what was said to the Messengers before you.”– Qur’an 41:43 

Everything in the Bible and the Qur’an was taken from ancient pagan texts (with only minor changes) that pre-dated it by thousands of years. The author of the Qur’an didn’t introduce new teachings. Islam retained almost all the pagan rituals, beliefs, practices of the Arabs and redefined them in monotheistic terms. Every Muslim belief, practice, and ritual can be traced back to pre-Islamic pagans of Arabia.

 

M: >Islam is a religion of peace.<

HB: Jainism has long been respected as the world’s most peace-loving religion. Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism are founded on principles of compassion and empathy.

Christianity is responsible for the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the witch-burnings. Christianity and Islam are responsible for the death of more than 100 million human beings in the name of God.

“But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.”– Luke 19:27 (Jesus)

According to historians, an estimated eighty-million Hindus were slaughtered by Muslims in India.

There are over a hundred violent or cruel passages in the Bible and the Qur’an. These are not the words of God, but of mere men. These verses should not have been in the so-called holy books to begin with.

Fanatical religions have used war, violence, propaganda, scaremongering, prejudice, and terrorism to convert billions of people against their will. This is black magic. Fanatical religions are imposed by fear, force, terror, torture and by brain washing – with lies, dishonesty, and deception.

Islam was spread by the sword. The followers of Islam called people to embrace Islam but whenever they rejected their invitation they fought and killed the non-Muslims. The Qur’an commands Muslims to wage war against non-Muslims and apostates (Surah 5:33; 9:5, 29). Muslims were conditioned to fight non-Muslims until they converted to Islam. Islam was born out of violence and propagated through violence. But of course things are different now.

The important thing is to increase the number of spiritual people on this planet. The world must conform to the universal truth, but unfortunately Islam doesn’t have the ultimate truth. By forced conversion, you only increase the numbers of fools, fanatics, and hypocrites, not the number of true spiritual people.

Here are some of the violent or cruel passages in the Bible, the Qur’an, and the Hadith:

Deuteronomy 17:12 ;Deuteronomy 13:13; Exodus 20:17; Leviticus 20:13; Exodus 21:15; Proverbs 20:20; Deuteronomy 22:20; Deuteronomy 17:12; Exodus 22:18; Ezekiel 35:7-9; Matthew 10:34-35; Isaiah 14:21; Ezekiel 9:5; Exodus 31:12-15; Leviticus 20:10; Numbers 31: 17-18; Leviticus 21:9; Chronicles 15:12-13; Deuteronomy 22:20-21; Deuteronomy 13:7-12; Jeremiah 48:10; Leviticus 24:16 ; Numbers 1: 51; Revelation 2:22-23; Samuel 15:2-4; Samuel 5:9; Numbers 31:17; Numbers 31:35-40.

Qur’an (2:193); Qur’an (3:83); Qur’an (8:38-39); Qur’an (9:11); Qur’an 9:29; Qur’an 9:30; Qur’an 9:31; Qur’an 9:33; Qur’an 9:123; Qur’an 48:29; Sahih Muslim (1:33); Sahih Muslim (19:4294); Sahih Muslim 30; Sahih Muslim 4366; Sunan An-Nasa’i 3099; Sunan Ibn Majah 2763; Sahih al-Bukhari 6922; Sahih al-Bukhari 4364; Bukhari 11:626; Qur’an 2:193; Qur’an 4:74; Bukhari 52:256; Qur’an 8:12; Qur’an5:33; Qur’an 8:67; Qur’an 8:12; Qur’an 9:5; Qur’an 17:16; Bukhari 52:177; Bukhari 8:387; Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 484; Muslim 19:4294; Tabari 9:69; Sahih Bukhari (8:387) ; Sahih Bukhari (53:392); Sahih Bukhari (2:24); Sahih Bukhari (60:80); Sahih Bukhari (60:40); Sahih Bukhari (59:643); Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 959; Sahih Muslim (19:4366); Sahih Muslim (31:5917); Bukhari (53:386); Verse 2:256. “Let there be no compulsion in religion,” was clearly abrogated by later verses, particularly in Sura 9 and 5 (last major chapters).

“But when the sacred months elapse, then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them and seize them, besiege them and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war). But if they repent and establish regular prayers, and practice regular charity, then open the way for them for Allah is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful”– (Qur’an 9.5)

“The exact words spoken to him in Muhammad’s presence were, ”Submit and testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is the apostle of Allah before you lose your head”– (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 814).

Most of these verses, in context, are dealing with waging offensive war against non-Muslims and enemies for the purpose of spreading Islam.

What context would make these verses inspiring, spiritual, or lead to universal enlightenment? In what context do passages like these lead to salvation? These verses should not have been in the so-called holy books to begin with.

If violence was not a part of these holy books then the world would be a much more peaceful place. There is already too much sex and violence on television. It is not healthy for children and adults as it leads to quick addictions and harmful vices. Whatever people watch on television and read on books can easily shape their behaviour and general attitudes in real life. We need to regulate the so-called holy books. These passages should be edited out of the so-called holy books.

Islam has some truth, but it is not a complete religion. All religions are branches of the one universal religion. There is some truth in all religions, like how pieces of a puzzle show you a portion of the larger picture. All religions have the same source and are just expressing the truth from different perspectives. The essence of all religions is one and the same. There is only one universal religion/spirituality, the religion of Universal Consciousness.
