Dams and rivers

Does a rose compete with a chrysanthemum?
Do the vindhyachal feel smaller than the Himalayas?
Does a peahen feel insecure of a peacock?
Then, Pray why do we feel small and insecure?
Why can’t we let the river of love flow between two people? Why do we want to build dams and change the course of the river to us? Pray why do we build dams on rivers of love?

Potato meditation

Zen is not about thinking of the Divine while peeling the potatoes, its just about peeling the potatoes”

How simple this statement is yet so profound. Like Zen itself. This is true meditation. The ability to concentrate on the task at hand. Completely. Fully.Integrally.

I have tried many types of meditations during my Sadhana. But this method is the toughest. It requires one to completely give oneself to the action that is being performed. Think of nothing else. Not even God.

What makes this meditation tough is that there is no tool to latch on to. No Manthra, No Single Point of Concentration, No use of only the mind. This zen meditation requires one to use all faculties in the action – mental , physical and emotional. They need to be in sync to make it a spiritual act. One needs to surrender to the action. One needs to be sincere in doing the act.

If we can consciously practise just peeling the potatoes- then we are not very far from our goal of inner peace and love.

Your Enemy is Your Mirror

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I have recently become a fan of ThinkTraffic and have made a commitment to write only EPIC SHIT CONTENT. As part of this commitment, I am launching a series of articles that will help you divinize your life!

The very first aspect is what I call The Mirror Effect. No, its not my original. It is a completely borrowed concept from one of my most favourite people. Sri Aurobindo.

Sri Aurobindo has written how every time we find fault in others, we must dig deep and see how we are displaying the same fault in some other aspect of our lives. With somebody else. This is what I call Mirroring. And what better way to use it than to make friends with your own enemy!

I would like to share with you two real examples of my life to help you see how we mirror in life and how we can use it lead more peaceful, happy and divine lives.

I used to have a rebellious colleague at my previous employer. I used to detest his attitude. Every time I asked him to do something, he would rebel. He was driving me nuts. I decided to apply Sri Aurobindo’s method to it. When I applied the mirror framework to it, i had to dig deeper to understand what I really disliked about him. I realized i detested his dis-respect for authority. His dis-respect for my own authority.I smiled that day. Smiled and Smiled and Smiled. I smile everytime I think about him.

I have always dis-respected authority. Starting from grand parents, to parents, to in-laws, to bosses. I have always been a Rebel. I will always be one. That’s in my DNA. AND , and,  and, and, here I was….. resenting dis-respect. When it came to ME. I have always been a major rebel against double standards: ) Ha ha ha! and here I was displaying my double standards in the most sophisticated manner. Nicely hidden under the garb of my spiritual self.

This was the first time Mirroring hit me. Into my Being. And I decided to apply it every where. This experience with my colleague taught me to mirror every where. I have ever been grateful to him for being who he was. Everytime I met him I smiled to myself. I became aware of his resentment and mine. And one day I could just accept myself the way I was , with all my rebellious nature and double standards and realized that the very same day I could accept him the way he was. With all his rebellious nature. I realized for the first time in my life, how difficult I have been with my parents and grand parents. How difficult it must have been for them to handle me. I always took pride in being a good manager and here I was finding it difficult to handle a difficult person. I decided to equip myself with skills to handle him. To understand him better. To accept him better. The more I accepted him, I accepted myself better. This experience transformed me. I stopped being rude and curt to people. I started to understand others perspectives. Be patient with others ( I am known for my fiery temper). And it goes on..

 Mirroring was alchemical. It touched my consciousness. It transformed my perspective from a deep level.

Let me now share the second example with you. It is about something that happened about 3-4 years ago. I have a friend whom I was just unable to accept. I have a habit to dig deeper especially on Saturday mornings.

I dug deeper to see what’s happening. I realized I could not forgive him for the way he treated me in the past. The more I thought of him, the more I detested him.I wanted to move on, but I was unable to. I wanted to forgive him , but was unable to. I dug deeper to see why I hated him. I hated him for what he did to me. I applied the mirror to see if I had done the same thing to anyone else. No I had not. So what happened to my great mirror effect?  I dropped it and dug deeper. I saw clearly that I was very unhappy that I was treated in a bad manner. I dug deeper. Why did I  let it happen to me? Why was I quiet? Why did I accept all the SHIT that was there in those 3 years? Because I saw tremendous benefit by being silent. So I was responsible for what happened.(It was very hard and laborious process). Why did I not voice my opinion then? Why am I scolding him today for what happened 3 years ago?  I dug deeper. 

I realized that I could not forgive myself for having tolerated all that SHIT.

That was IT.The Mirror again!

It came back haunting me. I could not forgive myself. I tried forgiving him but I realized that I had to forgive myself. That day I realized that there is no concept of forgiving someone else. You have to learn to forgive yourself. Till you do that, the feelings of hatred will haunt.  Within you.   I dug deeper to see why I tolerated him. I tolerated him because that relationship and the allied relationships were very important to me. I wanted them to be successful. So I tolerated for my own benefit. I nicely hid this beneath me and was trying to be all great by forgiving someone else. So next time you tell yourself, I have forgiven someone else. Remind yourself, you have forgiven your ownself.

I realized once again how The Mirror Effect was so powerful. How it is already there everywhere. We just need to dig deeper to see its fine working. I also realized that I can only use it when I am completely honest. With Myself. 

You can also use it. By your own self. For Your Own self. You do NOT have to share the details with anyone. It is for your OWN  benefit. Use it. Profit From it. Apply it for feelings of jealousy. Competitiveness. Resentment. Unforgiving nature. Excessive Spending. Being Stingy.When others are cunning with you. When you are deeply hurt in love because of someone else. When you think you have been cheated and above all to see yourself in your enemy!

Apply it to whatever makes you unhappy. and THAT list is definitely endless.

5 steps to divinize yourself

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Earlier, I used to meditate with a focus on my mind. I had numerous experiences of astral travel, heightened intuition and even a nervous breakdown!!! But the right way to meditate is to focus on the heart. That is the origin of Prana. In the middle of your Chest. The heart throbs with divine power.

Step 1: Take a few deep breaths and focus on your heart

Step 2: Believe that there is white light emerging from your heart.

Remember believe. Do not visualize. Visualization is for the mind. To see something that is not there. But the prana is already in your heart. That is why you are alive and reading this!!! Believe the white light emerging from your heart. Focus on it.

Chant Om Sri Sai Ram Guru Deva Dutta.

Step 3: Place your hands on your Hara Chakra ( right below the navel). Let the energy move from the heart to the Hara Chakra.

Chant Om Sri Maha Vishnu Swarupaya Sri Dhanavantri Swarupa Shri Shri Shri Aushadha Chakra Narayanaya Swaha.

Step 4: Make the energy travel to your feet and up along the back of your legs and along the spine to the back of your head and to the front of your head.

You can make it travel. Its your own divine light within you. Its from the divine seed within you. It wants to travel all over your physical body and divinize you. Just ask it to travel. Befriend the energy. Request it. Don’t Push It. You are not its master.

Chant Om Sri Maha Shakti Sameta Maha Maha Avatar Babaji Namo Namah

Step 5: Let the Light flow into your heart from your head, revisiting its source.

Chant Om Sri Maha Shweta Dweepa Parama GuruBhyo Namo Namah.

This method came to me. Maybe when you are doing it, your method will come to you. Just be aware. Do not be fixed by methods and processes. Enjoy the experience of the Light engulfing you and divinize you.

If you like this method, please share it with your friends. If you like this post, you may want to check the archives.If you like the blog , please subscribe to it.

What is Love

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

What is Love?

Love is a state of being. A state where every feeling, thought and action is in harmony with the soul’s vibrations. Love can be in one or many aspects in our being.

In the Physical Plane

When love is in the physical plane only, its sexual  and possessive.

In the Emotional Plane

This is caring and compassion, usually mistaken as a substitute for love

In the Mental Plane

This is intelligence, wisdom and knowledge

In the Spritual Plane

love  is Truth and Truth is love .

love is all of the above. A complex combination of all the four planes. Hence it is a state of be- ing.

Self Help is the Best Help

It has been my dream since 2006 to monetize my blog. I have let the idea marinate within me for six full years before I set up my first two products on Amazon Affiliate Program. The Osho Zen Tarot and the Goddess Oracle Cards.

There is a reason why I have chosen them. There is a reason beyond Money why I want you to use them.

Self Help is the Best Help.

The Osho Zen Tarot is an amazing deck of Tarot cards that is so simple to use and understand. One can energize the cards ( more on that in the next post), arrange them in front of oneself and pick cards by asking questions and seeking answers. The difference between any other deck and the Osho Zen Tarot is the kind of cards that they are. It has cards like Breakthrough, Going with the Flow, Transformation etc which are self explanatory. You do not need a Tarot Reader to explain the cards to you. You can do it on your own. This is a deck that I have personally used (without anyone teaching me how to use them) and have tremendously benefitted from it. You don’t have to believe in Tarot to benefit from it. It covers major issues of the Mind, Emotions, Body/ Physical and Spiritual.

The feel of the cards is beautiful. They are super smooth and have a very unique energy around them. The images are very well visioned. They are beyond the realm of thought. They are divine in nature.

The Goddess Oracle Cards . This is like the icing on the cake. The Goddess Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue are not only beautiful but also very very concise and precise. Once you complete the Osho Zen Tarot Reading, you can pick up a card to complete the reading for a final verdict.

Both these decks come with self explanatory books which will help resolve major and minor issues that you have. The books esp the Osho Zen Tarot has readings by Osho which make the reading all the more divine.

So if you have major or minor issues and want to solve them on your own. You want to rely on your own self, then these decks are the best for you.

So happy helping your self!!

Lov and Light,

Deepti

Artist

Tags

, , , , ,

I have always dreamed of a life where every movement of mine is effortless. Every action has a harmonious rhythm. Every thought is in harmony.Every feeling is in harmony. I am witnessing life yet participating it, yet not participating in it.

I have carried this dream within me ever since I was a child. I have just listened to my heart and done some seemingly very very foolish actions to make this dream come true.

I have nurtured it at all times. There were times when I was helpless. There were times when I felt helpless.There were times when I was in control of my dream. And of course there were times when the dream controlled me.

In my zeal to make this dream come true, I tried to force it to make it happen. The experience of bliss within. How foolish it seems now.

This year I have been feeling my dream is going manifest very soon. I feel this bliss is already within me. I just need to discover it. Invite it to come out into the open and occupy every cell of my body. I am sure that when every cell reverberates with bliss, there will be harmony in every aspect of my being.

Earlier, I made a mistake of making it happen in my mind. That’s why I had the nervous breakdown. Its not possible for the mind to take the power of that bliss and light. Only the body can contain that power. The mind can experience it but cannot contain it.

We abuse our bodies so much. We abuse ourselves so much. This abuse comes from lack of patience. Thats why I have decided to live like an artist.

An artist sees the picture in some obscure form. The artist starts painting with enthusiasm. he trusts his instincts. The original picture only guides him, its an overall framework. he improvises along the way. One cannot see the picture before it is complete. One can only feel the picture.

The final product needs to be in harmony. That is the essence of being an artist. One may have many drawbacks within oneself, yet the final picture can be beautiful. The process is purgatory.

Living like an artist. I want to discover the secrets. I want to experience it. I want to live it.

Would you like to join my movement? of living like an artist?

Love and Light,

Deepti

The Problem with Reiki

Tags

, , ,

I had been initiated into Reiki in the year 2007. In 2 years I completed my Reiki Level 2 and Level 3 a with my teachers. In a short span of time, my intuitive and psychic abilities grew exponentially. But as time went, I realized that I was getting all the symptoms that I was healing people for. Thats when I started reflecting on the issues of Reiki.

The problem with westernized Reiki is that it has put a process to a very higher order experience and phenomenon. There were no symbols and no methods when Mikao Usui taught Reiki. It was only after it was Americanized that symbols and methods, attunement processes appeared.

This is the fundamental problem with the current system in which Reiki is being taught. It is bound by a process.

The second issue is the issue of grounding. God or Universal Energy is in our heart.So, the grounding must be with God or w.r.t. the heart rather than with Earth which has vibrations of other human beings and many beings in general. When you ground yourself in your heart , you are grounded with Truth. The Truth that there is divine presence within each human being in the form of love.

The third issue is symbols. When you put the symbols, u have no idea whose energy is coming to you. You believe it is universal energy. But the universe is filled with all kinds of energies. How does one stop one type of energy entering or posing as a good energy. As Sri Aurobindo has said, there are all kinds of vital beings in this world. How does one really know which energy is coming. The best way to heal is self healing. heal with the energy of your heart. You don’t need attunements to look within your heart and draw energies from there.

When you draw energy from your heart, it heals every aspect of your being.

So tune into your heart, ground yourself with respect to your heart and heal your own self. You don’t need anyone external to help you. You have that divine presence in you.

Self healing is the best healing

Self guidance is the best guidance

Self love is the best love

Self acceptance is the best acceptance.

Truth is the only Truth
