Only the Ego can be Offended.

Only the Ego can be Offended.

The ego lives in illusion, and it is our spiritual destiny to understand this ego and it’s illusions. What is required to fully appreciate this Teaching is the understanding of this ego. We have to have the strength to look at the nature of our appearance. We have to have the resilience to look at what is true about ourselves. No body-mind is perfect; the ego has inherent limitations in its mechanical nature. To accept this is to begin to move beyond our denial about non-perfection. You believe that these Teachings don’t apply to you because you are special, but your very belief that there is a ‘you’ and a ‘me’ is a sign of this illusion of separateness of which I speak. These Teachings are not my opinion, they are true to form in their historical context. These Teachings are an offence to the ego, and they have always been an offence to the ego. If they are an offence to you, it means that they are working. Only the ego or the separate one can be offended! There is only God, everything else is illusion.

Reality Transcends the Mind

Reality Transcends the Mind

Scientific facts have revealed, and will continue to reveal, that the reality that we perceive is merely a construct of the mind, and not a genuine representation of the actual state of Reality. We may find more and more sophisticated ways of describing how this reality manifests, but they will only ever be approximations of Reality, not Reality itself. We will never be able to truly perceive, or describe the true nature of Reality because we are always looking at it from outside; we are always observing it from the point of view of being separate from it. Reality itself is un-qualified, it is beyond the qualities that can be observed from a limited angle. From our apparently separate viewpoint, we are not able to perceive the actual condition of Reality itself. Where we err is in our tendency to focus our attention on the separate qualities of Reality, rather than on the quality of Reality itself. We are concerned with how things work or how they appear, rather than on what they mean!

Understanding is not belief, as belief is a product of the mind. It is a convention of the human mind to try to know what is infinite and indivisible. The actuality of consciousness is beyond the limits of comprehension. The revelation of Reality comes through the transcendence of perception, memory and belief. Understanding is freedom from the constraints of metallization and ideology. The conventions of the mind are transcended through the understanding of the paradox of Reality.


The Way to Enjoy Happiness

The Way to Enjoy Happiness

Happiness is enjoyed through the falling away of illusion. Enlightenment is the realization of the unqualified nature of Happiness, not the dilution of an illusory appearance that derives from perception and conception. In any case, what is required in order to truly enjoy Happiness is that we transcend the obstruction of our individualized experience. The true Reality of the Divine can be enjoyed when there is the transcendence of this false imagery of appearance. Only through these means can the ultimate nature of Happiness be enjoyed. The way to enjoy Happiness is through complete understanding of the true nature of the Divine. When the true nature of the Divine is understood the bliss of the Happiness is spontaneously enjoyed.

Shadow and Light

Shadow and Light

In many religions death is associated with something dark, as many people since ancient times have associated it with something evil and unholy. Through Understanding, we realize that there is more to death than evil and darkness. In the East many people worship this destructive force as a God. This is because there is a more profound function to death than simply deprivation. Death is the force of change, it is the force of renewal. Like winter, death sweeps away the old to make way for the new; it is a positive part of process of transformation. Everything that occurs happens for a reason, the same force that is behind both good and the evil is the same force behind all the qualities of manifest existence. Cosmic forces conspire behind all events, both good and bad, in service to the Divine purpose. All conditional manifestations are servants to the greater process of Consciousness, and all qualities of life are simply expressions of our Divine nature. All of our successes and failures are simply momentary modifications of the ultimate nature of our divinity and infinite beingness. Without light, all would be darkness, without shadow, all would be desert.

The Practice of Sadhana

Sadhana is the genuine practice of living in satsang. Through the application of true sadhana, enegy and attention are released into blissful flow of unobstructed Relationship. When we practice sadhana, we are purified from the binding conditions of suffering. It is through the intensification of the practice of sadhana that we realize the joy of satsang. When we live in satsang through the practice of sadhana, we become engulfed in the enjoyment of enlightenment. All of our gestures become an expression of the radiance of the divine. The joy of sadhana is the realization of happiness, it is the true practice of the one that understands. The practice of sadhana is rooted in understanding, this is why the key to enlightenment is to practice sadhana. The more you practice sadhana relative to your ego, the more you will enjoy enlightenment!
