    more In this recognition we experience freedom Bhagavan teaches that there is no such thing as a personal mind Yes we have individual thoughts but they are simply emanations from what he calls the Ancient Mind a collective thought sphere of humanity that has existed from the beginnings of our current civilisation perhaps 11 or 12 thousand years ago All our fears inadequacies turmoil and pain all our lusts addictions insecurities and greed all our hatred rage jealousies and judgements belong to this thought sphere Additionally many of our impulses for kindness beauty pleasure happiness and courage also exist within this thought sphere Our brain can be visualised as a radio receiving station that picks up these frequencies at random depending on our state of mind or health physical environment or various astrological factors Our own individual traumas or conditioning from the past also contribute to the band of frequencies that we select However our thoughts are not our own thoughts Because our brain is programmed for separation we receive these thoughts feelings impressions and emotions as if they were our own thereby separating us even more effectively from the rest of humanity which we perceive to be better than less than or somehow different from us We watch a movie on the screen and very quickly get lost in the illusion that it is real However if we slow it down so that we can see it frame by frame we realise that it is only a movie In exactly the same manner we are conditioned by the self to perceive our own life as a living movie Enlightenment creates a fine tuning of the senses where we realise that the sense of a fixed continuous self is an illusion generated by the neurological circuitry of our brain There is a continual dance of personalities but no fixed or continuous self that somehow remains the same from birth to death Consciousness flows through your body moment by moment but it is the same consciousness that flows through all creation When there is no self there is no craving or attachment Cravings and attachments are based on a sense of separate existence or self importance where you continually desire things you do not have or have what you do not desire When there is no separate self attachments and cravings cease When cravings and attachments cease there is no suffering We are not talking about physical or psychological suffering here but existential suffering Existential suffering is the incessant desire to be experiencing something other than what is It is not our pain that causes us suffering but our resistance to that pain It is our attempts to escape from suffering that cause us suffering Enlightenment means to experience the reality of each moment as it comes your way without needing to resist it or change it in any way Once you are willing to fully experience what is there you are no longer separate from reality You experience the truth of each moment directly as it is You become freed from the interference and conditioning imposed by the mind You experience the causeless joy of being You still have mental pathways of old habits memory and personality but you are no longer a solid thing The self becomes porous and the winds of eternity become capable of blowing through freshly in every moment You are no longer a fixed person but a dance of personalities blowing in and out of awareness You are not even a witness separate from yourself watching things blowing in the wind You are the wind You may still have likes and dislikes emotions may still come up but there is no charge left and as soon as they come up they will likewise go away just like an infant throwing a tantrum one moment and staring in wonderment at a little tiny caterpillar the next There may still be emotional habit patterns imprinted in the body but these too subside over time Another realisation that comes after enlightenment is that your body is not your body Most of the functions of the body are involuntary but you realise that even the functions that you think were voluntary are not really yours to control During an enlightenment experience many people report that their body goes through all sorts of involuntary postures and movements tears and laughter completely independent of personal will It may also become totally immobile and you realise that there is nothing you can do to make it move unless it chooses to Your relationship with your body changes You no longer identify with it as yours rather it simply becomes a beautiful vehicle for consciousness to use You understand how privileged you are to have this lovely living body as a means to express the Divine in the world Each taste each smell each sound each vision each touch is exquisite and is as if you are experiencing it for the first time Each thought likewise comes with its own living freshness directly from the consciousness of each moment an experience that the Zen Buddhists refer to as beginner s mind Enlightenment begins with the ability to witness all these things As you move into deeper states of unity and God realization you discover that you have become one with all creation and that indeed the sense of your own body embraces all of creation Eventually you discover that you have become one with the Creator as well as creation You realise in the words of Jesus two thousand years ago that I and the Father are One In a nutshell Bhagavan teaches that 1 There is only one Mind the Ancient Mind It is conditioned by separation and duality 2 Your mind is not your mind but an extension of this Ancient Mind 3 Similarly your thoughts are not your own thoughts but downloaded from the thought sphere associated with this Ancient Mind 4 The sense of a separate self is generated

    you forever they can t give you peace You eye your books and consider all the benefit you have gained from these extremely wise vessels of truth Yet not one book not one thought goes deep enough inside you to where the affliction abides You look at your possessions your money container No material thing has been able to help you No material means have worked Nothing no one in the outer world has enabled you to come out of this dark night In your loneliness you next in a seemingly random process notice that none of your thoughts have proven adequate to your suffering Not one even repeated fifty thousand times breaks the inner storm and lets in light God and higher consciousness seem so far away that perhaps they are unreal Neither one has despite your protracted exposure of yourself done anything to ease or remove your agony Nothing appears efficacious Nothing works Clearly there is nowhere to turn There is nothing to be done All actions you considered have been tried There is nothing to think nothing to feel nothing to do nowhere to go It seems you have to accept this defeat or you can persist in struggling against it For awhile longer you go about thinking feeling and doing other options that occur to you But you realize in the midnight of your soul that you have tried every option you know of The Peace Comes Helpless totally helpless as well as ever so alone you abide in this condition And you accept your predicament You accept that there is really except for a murmured prayer to a remote Lord and a remnant of a shredded faith nothing else left Suicide would be absurd Suicide would be an act of arrogance and vanity You have grown far beyond such primitive responses to your private agony No nothing to do Nothing remains in this lonely helplessness There is without question nothing you can do You abide You accept your state How have you gotten to this place That s insignificant Musings and feelings aside you wait You feel you may have to stay this way forever doing the regular day to day things but in this mood of emptiness Nothing Nothing Then it happens A holy presence comes into your room sweetly softly You feel it filling you Your mind is filled with mellow or bright light Your heart your still heart is permeated with peace This peace moves through your body like a cold spring of mountain water It flows in your spine your brain and under your skin Everywhere Also this presence this comforter moves like a breeze across your arid mind and numb heart Then or a few days later the fire of joy begins to smoulder Here abiding with nothing more to do your ego drops away Your ignorant arrogant fearful sense of self falls away from you You stand in light a new being a free being transformed Your Ego Sense Believe it or not that s what the dark night is all about transformation Your ego your limited sense of self your inadequate complex of ideas about who you are had to be dissolved Your ego was you begin to see eclipsing higher consciousness and your true nature Your old sense of self was inadequate to your new hopes and proper state Your suffering intensified because of a major misapprehension You were too used to thinking of yourself based on inputs from your previous experiences in life On and on through life you gathered information and responses from the world which indicated to you what kind of person you were and are These superficial units of related inputs became integrated in what is called the ego your sense of self your sense of who you are As long as you allowed this inaccurate or only partial sense of who you are to dominate you could not know or abide in your true nature Your ego sense is so powerful you invest it with so much of your thought and feeling that your attitudes of life become based on an egocentric perspective The ego gains a progressively greater foothold on your entire life because your basic attitudes about your existence and essential nature are strongly linked with ego Then your ego sense due to your suffering or your limitations in life wants to have more power over circumstances and a more pleasant life The ego sense often becomes motivated to seek higher consciousness and thus greater ability to dominate in life Not always but often it is the ego sense which most eagerly pursues higher consciousness It wants to be in charge it wants to manipulate events and make life come out more to its satisfaction But as long as your ego dominates it is on a collision course with your true nature and your higher consciousness There s going to be a showdown There has to be a confrontation sometime if your higher consciousness is ever to emerge if you are ever to know truly who you are and what your human capabilities are Furthermore and this is extremely important especially in understanding the dark night of the soul your ego as it develops from childhood onward has the conviction that it is the doer Generally your ego assumes that it chooses what your mind will think and chooses what your heart will feel It feels it selects the various actions and activities you are going to undertake Your sense of self being convinced it is the doer feels it accomplishes anything and everything in your life Do you see then how the dark night develops A false sense of self has been ignorantly and manipulatively standing in the way of enlightenment Additionally until you are consolidated in higher consciousness your ego can return and reestablish control if you let it Sometimes when you re fatigued or when you have special new opportunities in life you are vulnerable to the

    symbolized as a process of death and rebirth What dies is the ego What is born in its place is an inner divinity arising from the knowledge that everything is a flow of oneness Jesus himself underwent this process in the forty days of wilderness preceding his public ministry which established him in the state of permanent divine union This journey through the dark night cannot be measured in linear time Whether it lasts for moments or for years depends entirely on our willingness to undergo the death of ego Paradoxically this death takes place once we understand that there never was a separate self in the first place It is simply a rearrangement of perception which opens the pathway needed for our true nature to express itself We recognize that we are and always have been simply a flow of consciousness expressing itself moment by moment in the theater we call life Once this realization occurs accompanied by a shift within the neurobiological structure of the human brain we are established in a state of mastery There is no more room for separation or judgment in our perceptions of life Synchronicity becomes our daily experience Miracles happen all around us because we are no longer restricted to a linear perception of reality We establish a field of harmonic resonance all around us which becomes contagious There is no longer a need for psychological drama or existential suffering We radiate beauty and joy everywhere we go simply because we are no longer capable of experiencing or expressing anything else For many of us this realization is still in the future However knowing the end makes the path easier Knowing that there is a radiant dawn at the end of the night makes it seem somewhat shorter Ultimately once we awaken we realize that the long dark night was itself an illusion much like our dreams of sleep dispel into unreality in the light of day Long dark night Desolate winds howl in icy winter night The pilgrim stops in his endless wanderings And lends his own voice to the wind How can it be when the sky is emptied When nothing remains to obscure the sun That life is strangely fed in this mystic darkness The silent vastness ebbs and flows These riches can only be seen By one whose eyes are empty of seeing When the fires of desolation Have flared up then died away When the last embers of hope and certainty Have faded in the night How can it be my Friend That I hear you so clearly now When everything I have ever known Has smoldered away with these embers The storms of separation have passed Only the wet snow bears witness The dark night is revealed As doorway to deepest light I have found my voice In the softly running silent living Wild pulsing heart Of Eternity Kiara s book Fire from Heaven Dawn of a Golden Age which highlights Bhagavan s teachings on the

    I watched my need to be perfect to be special to be unique I watched myself reacting defensively to any assault real or imaginary towards the cherished spiritual identity that I had so carefully built up over the years I began to witness with utter horror the immense insanity and ugliness of my mind which Bhagavan defines as any kind of self centered activity I could see this extending into even the most spiritual of motivations Was I being good because I was conditioned to be good Was I striving to impress someone by my saintliness Was I helping because I was afraid to say no Did I love because I wanted to be loved back Did I want to be recognized for being wise or wonderful Was I feeling so empty inside that I had to run around from workshop to workshop filling myself up with every high that came my way Did I talk about dying to self only to use it as yet another building block in my spiritual edifice Did I want to be in total charge of my life even when I stated I was in service to the Divine Did I feel the need to achieve enlightenment by my own efforts so I could finally proudly place the crown of enlightenment upon my own head I saw how needy and inauthentic my entire life had been I saw that this wonderful personality that I thought myself to be was nothing but a mind controlled robot As I continued to observe I noticed that over the years I had built a whole set of identities around myself The spiritual identity was the worst one of all I was a spiritual teacher and a healer I was sensitive and compassionate I was a good person I had a mission to heal the world I was wise and loving and deep I saw that I had become so identified with this image of myself that these very identities became a mask I found myself carefully protecting this image lest someone see through me into a place that was vulnerable or uncertain angry or lustful unloving or fearful ordinary or shallow depressed or shy I saw my desperate needs for approval for acceptance for love I noticed how I was eating up the world around me in order to survive More is beautiful bigger is better I noticed how true this was for me whether this had to with a material identity or with spiritual experiences I noticed how I was dressing up my vices to become virtues My fear of others becomes my need for solitude I cultivated humility because I didn t have the courage to stand up to abuse I loved because I was too afraid to be alone I embarked on a mission to save the world because I didn t have any other planet to go to I couldn t find any love anywhere I recognized how unloving I really was how fragile

    doorway between the worlds opens and humanity will step through this doorway collectively as an enlightened species I am told that Bhagavan is only manifesting a tiny fraction of his power at this time It needs to proceed in stages As the work grows and the morphogenetic field of enlightenment gets stronger more and more of his power will be revealed until all structures of human separation will collapse in the face of this rising tide It is expected that the completion of the Shakti Sthala will allow a much greater release of power than is possible currently As the strength of these morphogenetic fields continues to grow more and more people will begin to move into permanent states of enlightenment and God realization with just a single deeksha Soon it will become possible for anyone who has received deeksha to give deeksha to anyone else and give them enlightenment as well Eventually the individual deeksha will not be required anymore The state will be transferred through a glance through a touch through a prayer It will happen through dance music and art It will happen as people in the healing professions go about their daily work It will happen as people fall in love It will happen as people open their hearts and eyes to suffering humanity It will happen spontaneously as an unstoppable tide of grace coursing through our collective consciousness Already spontaneous combustive awakenings are beginning to happen all over the world Perhaps the morphogenetic field is already strong enough for those whose souls are ready What is coming is truly unimaginable and will not easily fit into the spiritual and intellectual boxes we have defined for ourselves All teachings and practices will become irrelevant as the power of this wave sweeps through our collective being This is not a passive event but a co creative act As we become collectively enlightened we become this avataric force It will be an order of enlightenment far beyond anything we are now able to experience as separate enlightened individuals The human family will begin to experience itself as one global entity one rainbow of many colors one planetary self with many pairs of eyes one planetary brain composed of 6 billion central nervous systems What this will look like in the years and decades to come is beyond our wildest imaginings This will be the new dawn so many have long awaited in every age and tradition This will be the day when the gates of eternity will be opened to all and God s dream will be realized Or perhaps it does not yet exist even in the mind of God and is being dreamed into existence co creatively moment by moment This is why Bhagavan has taken incarnation This is why we have taken incarnation These are truly the times we are born for Some Links Below and Many Pages In The Site Are Under Construction Thank You For Your Patience and Understanding Oneness Blessing Deeksha List

    than I had been before There were some good things in my life and I was helping a lot of people but it wasn t enough I had become identified with the search I had to keep seeking have more experiences go deeper into myself understand the totality of the universe Occasionally I would slow down drop into my center and enter the river of being Still I wasn t happy with just being I was always trying to become more than myself I was happy as long as I was searching because as long as I was searching I could continue to feed my fantasies of the ideal world This ideal was always in the future The present moment was never enough I don t want to downplay my desire to seek more in life I have led a useful creative varied and even a fulfilling life in a lot of ways I have received a lot of life s gifts a lot of love a lot of beauty As a peace activist psychotherapist spiritual teacher and writer I have helped a lot of people and contributed to making a better world But what it always came down to is that it wasn t enough Which also meant that I wasn t enough not good enough not loving enough not accomplished enough not spiritual enough If I just had that one more experience one more tool in my spiritual toolkit and the whole cycle would repeat itself Instead of recognizing the gifts I had already received I was still focusing on my limitations Instead of realizing the extraordinary nature of each ordinary moment I was still trying to turn the seemingly ordinary moments into an extraordinary ideal I was still seeking perfection I came back to India two years ago with the inner awareness that what I was seeking could not be found in the way I was seeking it As I was talking with a close friend and spiritual brother one day he felt a strong intuition that I would meet somebody in India who would help me take the final step into enlightenment I felt the same After searching through many ashrams many gurus I eventually found my way to Bhagavan s ashram along with my wife Grace who had also had some extraordinary visions guiding her to come here We were in Nemam for Amma s birthday celebration when the first public mukti deeksha was given Grace went through an extraordinary transformation and a few days later received her enlightenment I had deeksha at the same time and later even went through a 5 day enlightenment process Nothing happened Now I was really pissed off at the Universe How come Grace gets it who wasn t even looking for it and I don t after all my efforts all my seeking all my meditating I could feel the Universe laughing at me gently slipping in past all the noise in my mind Because she wasn t

    in their lives this may show up as a greater need to control others or their own experience For those who have experienced trauma around money or self worth this may show up as financial contraction or survival fears And so on Just like the water in a well is connected at the underground level with the water table of an entire region we may even go past the personal unconscious and experience aspects of the collective unconscious that need to be brought forward acknowledged and healed In his 40 days in the wilderness Jesus was able to acknowledge and heal his personal shadows During his descent into hell in the course of his crucifixion he was able to acknowledge and heal aspects of the collective shadow If we are aligned with the awakening of humanity into the Golden Age we too will be called upon to do likewise It is crucial that people understand this within the deeksha community and create support networks with each other to enable people to go through this dark night when it comes up It is only when we have this support network in place that the deeper experiences of oneness can safely happen What is being challenged here is the very idea of a separate ego self which is ingrained very deeply in most of us We will likely go through a phase when our very sense of meaning or purpose in life is confronted when we flounder in existential emptiness and when even our sense of connection with the divine seemingly disappears It is a great purging and the purpose is to take us down to the very pits of hell From here suddenly the light of grace can illuminate all the dark corners and take us equally powerfully to the highest heavens Having surrendered to death we discover the fullness of life To the extent that we are aware of this process to that extent we can embrace it Realize there is nothing you can DO to get through it except just to be aware of the bigger picture and let it happen In our fear of the dark side or if we imagine that we are somehow losing our enlightenment many people try to hang on to a peak experience which inevitably plunges them deeper into the pit If we embrace our pit experience paradoxically we soon find our way out into a greater embrace of the unified state where we are attached to neither dark nor light but experience ourselves beyond either and therefore as all Many people are conditioned by ideas of instant enlightenment Yes the deeksha greatly accelerates this process but nevertheless it is a process and takes time to unfold Don t expect to live in states of perpetual bliss at least not at first and don t expect to become an overnight saint This is not realistic and is a denial of the dark side The dark side is not to be feared but acknowledged
