Is Everything Preordained?

Emptiness is realization. Emptiness is Brahman.
Emptiness is the Self. Emptiness is your real nature.
———————————————————————–

The important point here is you have to stop the thoughts from rising.
In order for you to do this you have to find the source to your thoughts.
What is the source of your thoughts?
You never answer a question like this.
For if you answer this question it’s the ego answering the question.

The whole idea is to be silent.
Not to add affirmations or words to your garbage pail.
It is already filled with garbage.

By garbage I mean, preconceived ideas, dogmas, opinions, samskaras from previous lives, you’re filled with these things and you are a reacting machine, you react, that is what you do all day is react, react, react.

Therefore when you try to learn more knowledge and you read more books all you’re doing is adding on to the garbage pail.
Of course most of you realize, the highest truth is to delete, not to add.
To get rid of the things you believe in now.
So empty yourself out totally and completely.
All of your ideas, your feelings, all have to be emptied out of you.
When you become totally and completely empty there is nothing you have to do to fill it up again.

Emptiness is realization. Emptiness is Brahman.
Emptiness is the Self. Emptiness is your real nature.
So do not concern yourself whether the world is real or if everything is preordained.
Do not waste your time thinking about things like this.

Wouldn’t it be more useful for you to say, “To whom do these thoughts come?
Who is thinking these thoughts?
To whom do they come? They come to me.
Then who am I?” I tell you this will be more useful for you.

You’ve been wasting your time trying to find out what is real, what is false,
who is enlightened, who is not, who is real, who is a fake, who is this, who is that and trying to make your life a certain way when the one is always looking after you.
The power that knows the way will always take care of you and lead you to where you’re supposed to be.
Wake up! Be free!

The Five Steps To Self Realization – ( PART 1 of 5 )

The Five Steps To Self Realization – ( PART 1 of 5 )

You are realization itself. It is your real nature.
The reason I’m sharing these five steps with you is because the five steps are part of the personal self.
The ego, the I-thought, the five steps are involved in them.
When we work on the five steps in the relative world we become ourselves, awakened and free.

The first step is: Prayer and devotion.
The second step is: Effortless No-Thought State.
The third step is: Division of Light and Sound.
The fourth step is: The Void, and,
The fifth step is: Bliss.

We’ll begin with the first step.
In the beginning when one first starts out on the path and even when one is on the path for quite a while, prayer and meditation or prayer and devotion are very important.
You become devoted to God who is within you and you pray to God within yourself.
You must therefore begin to totally surrender, give up everything to God, forget about your troubles, forget about the world, just give it up.

Jnana Marga – The Path Of Knowledge

There’s only one I actually, and that I is consciousness.
When you follow the personal I to the source, it turns into the universal I, which is consciousness.
Begin to catch yourself. Begin to realize your divine nature.
And you do this by keeping quiet.
The fastest way to realization is to keep silent.
Yet you have to know why you are keeping silent.
This is why you can’t tell this to the average person.
If a person has no inkling of Advaita Vedanta, you cannot say keep silent.
For to them it means just to be quiet.
They don’t realize it means to go deep, deep, deep, deep within, to that place where absolute reality lives, and that’s the silence.

Actually the human body cannot keep silent.
There’s something else that enters the silence.
It has nothing to do with your humanity.
It’s only after years perhaps of meditation in previous lives, that you can be mature enough to really know what this path is all about.
When I give you these practices, it’s not for you as a human being.
You appear to be able to go through it as a human being, but I can assure you your humanity has nothing to do with it.
When you enter the silence you enter a profound peace, bliss consciousness, pure awareness.
That’s what the silence is. It’s not being quiet. It’s beyond that.
It’s not just quieting your mind, like I say all the time.
It’s understanding that there’s no mind to quiet.
When you realize there’s no mind, you automatically become silent.
When you still think you’ve got a mind, you make every effort to quiet the mind, and you can’t.

How many of you believe you can quiet the mind through effort?
You can’t do that. It’s not the effort that makes you quiet your mind.
It’s the intelligent understanding that you have no mind to begin with.
Then you just keep still and everything takes care of itself.
If you have to meditate, by all means meditate.
This path is never against any other method, due to the fact they all eventually lead to awakening.
You have to do whatever you have to do.
But for those who can understand what I’m talking about, and realize you’re dealing with no mind, no body, no world, no universe, no God, an awakening comes immediately, because there’s no one who is sleeping.
Do you follow this?
