In the beginning there were no monasteries, just a wandering teacher and his tag-along disciples. In India and Nepal 25 centuries ago there were many wandering teachers and disciples. It had long been common for men seeking spiritual teaching to attach themselves to a guru, and these gurus usually lived either in simple forest hermitages or, even more simply, under the shelter of trees.

The historical Buddha began his spiritual quest by seeking highly regarded gurus of his day. Then he realized enlightenment, and disciples began to follow him.

The Buddha and his first disciples had no fixed place to call home. They slept under trees and begged for all of their food. Their only clothes were robes they patched together from cloth taken from rubbish heaps. The cloth usually was dyed with spices such as turmeric or saffron, which gave it a yellow-orange color. Buddhist monks’ robes to this day often are called “saffron robes.”

At first, people who wished to become disciples simply approached the Buddha and asked to be ordained, and the Buddha would grant ordination. As the sangha grew, the Buddha established a rule that ordinations could take place in the presence of ten ordained monks without his having to be there.

In time there came to be two steps to ordination. The first step was home-leaving. Candidates recited the Ti Samana Gamana (Pali), “taking the three refuges” in the Buddha, the dharma, and the sangha. Then the novices shaved their heads and put on their patched, yellow-orange robes.

Sadhus which evolved from the shramana sects, grew right along side the Buddhists, and shared common goals (enlightenment), the Sadhus however are often less formal, even to the point of being renegade mystics. Where Buddhist monks could avoid intoxicants, shave their head and dress modesty, Sadhus would forsake societies rules growing long locks of matted hair, smoking and eating Ganja, and wearing little to no clothing, many Sadhus adopted the ideal of the Avadhuta, a Buddha that has disregarded all worldly affairs as fancies.

Today in the west especially, realizeing spiritual immortality is a messy afair to be taken with caution, like Lao Tzu says there are a world full of half enlightened masters to sensitive to life, and only offering confusion to the already confused.

it is important that the spiritual melting pot that is america settle into teaching groups to guide people over those speed bumps, and to offer a lifestyle to those wishing to seek spiritual practice

the 24 gurus

When Guru Dattatreya was a child, a king visited the ashram. Because his parents were away, Dattatreya greeted the king and the king saw an inner joy radiating from the boy. The king immediately realized that the boy was gifted with great wisdom and started talking to him.

(Source: Book – The Himalayan Masters: A Living Tradition by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD)

 

King: You have been studying with your parents?

Dattatreya: There is much to learn from everyone and everything, not only from my parents.

 

King: Then you have a teacher? Who is it?

Dattatreya: I have 24 gurus.

 

King: Twenty-four gurus at such a tender age? Who are they?

Dattatreya: Mother earth is my first guru. She taught me to hold those who trample me, scratch me, and hurt me lovingly in my heart, just as she does. She taught me to give them my best, remembering that their acts are normal and natural from their standpoint.

 

King: Who is your second guru?

Dattatreya: Water it is a force that contains life and purity. It cleanses whatever it touches and provides life to whoever drinks it. Water flows unceasingly. If it stops, it becomes stagnant. Keep moving is the lesson I learned from water.

 

King: Your third guru?

Dattatreya: Fire. It burns everything, transforming it into flame. By consuming dead logs, it produces warmth and light. Thus, I learnt how to absorb everything that life brings and how to turn it into flame. This flame enlightens my life and in that light, others can walk safely.

 

King: Who is your fourth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: Wind is my fourth guru. The wind moves unceasingly, touching flowers and thorns alike, but never attaches itself to the objects it touches. Like the wind, I learned not to prefer flowers over thorns or friends over foes. Like the wind, my goal is to provide freshness to all without becoming attached.

 

King: The fifth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: This all-pervading and all-embracing space is my fifth guru. Space has room for the sun, moon, and stars and yet, it remains untouched and unconfined. I, too, must have room for all the diversities, and still remain unaffected by what I contain. All visible and invisible objects may have their rightful place within me, but they have no power to confine my consciousness.

 

King: Who is your sixth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: The moon. The moon waxes and wanes and yet never loses its essence, totality, or shape. From watching the moon, I learned that waxing and waning-rising and falling, pleasure and pain, loss and gain-are simply phases of life. While passing through these phases, I never lose awareness of my true Self.

 

King: Who is your seventh guru?

Dattatreya: The sun is my seventh guru. With its bright rays, the sun draws water from everything, transforms it into clouds, and then distributes it as rain without favor. Rain falls on forests, mountains, valleys, deserts, oceans, and cities. Like the sun, I learned how to gather knowledge from all sources, transform that knowledge into practical wisdom, and share it with all without preferring some recipients and excluding others.

 

King: And your eighth guru?

Dattatreya: My eighth guru is a flock of pigeons. One pigeon fell into a hunter’s net and cried in despair. Other pigeons tried to rescue it and got caught, too. From these pigeons, I learned that even a positive reaction, if it springs from attachment and emotion, can entangle and ensure.

 

King: Your ninth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: My ninth guru is the python who catches and eats its prey, and then doesn’t hunt again for a long time. It taught me that once my need has been met, I must be satisfied and not make myself miserable running after the objects of my desire.

 

King: Who is your tenth guru?

Dattatreya: The ocean, which is the abode of the waters. It receives and assimilates water from all the rivers in the world and never overflows its boundaries. It taught me that no matter what experiences I go through in life, no matter how many kicks and blows I receive, I must maintain my discipline.

 

King: Who is your eleventh guru, oh wise one?

Dattatreya: The moth is my eleventh guru. Drawn by light, it flies from its dwelling to sacrifice itself in the flame. It taught me that once I see the dawn, I must overcome my fear, soar at full speed, and plunge into the flame of knowledge to be consumed and transformed.

 

King: The twelfth?

Dattatreya: My twelfth guru is a bumblebee who takes only the tiniest drops of nectar from the flowers. Before accepting even that much, it hums and hovers and dances, creating an atmosphere of joy around the flower. It not only sings the song of cheerfulness; it also gives more to the flowers than it takes. It pollinates the plants and helps them prosper by flying from one flower to another. I learned from the bumblebee that I should take only a little from nature and that I should do so cheerfully, enriching the source from which I receive sustenance.

 

King: Your thirteenth guru?

Dattatreya: My thirteenth guru is the honeybee who collects more nectar than it needs. It gathers nectar from different sources, swallows it, transforms it into honey, and brings it to the hive. It consumes only a bit of what it gathers, sharing the rest with others. Thus I should gather wisdom from the teachers of all disciplines and process the knowledge that I gain. I must apply the knowledge that is conducive to my growth, but I must be ready to share everything I know with others.

 

King: The fourteenth guru, oh wise seeker?

Dattatreya: Once I saw a wild elephant being trapped. A tame female elephant in season was the bait. Sensing her presence, the wild male emerged from its domain and fell into a pit that had been cleverly concealed with branches and heaps of leaves. Once caught, the wild elephant was tamed to be used by others. This elephant is my fourteenth guru because he taught me to be careful with my passions and desires. Worldly charms arouse our sensory impulses and, while chasing after the sense cravings, the mind gets trapped and enslaved, even thought it is powerful.

 

King: Who is your fifteenth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: The deer, with its keen sense of hearing. It listens intently and is wary of all noises, but is lured to its doom by the melody of the deer hunter’s flute. Like the deer, we keep our ears alert for every bit of news, rumor, and gossip, and are skeptical about much that we hear. But we become spellbound by certain words, which, due to our desires, attachments, cravings, and vasanas (subtle impressions from the past), we delight to hear. This tendency creates misery for others and ourselves.

 

King: And who is your sixteenth guru?

Dattatreya: The fish who swallows a baited hook and is caught by the fisherman. This world is like bait. As long as I remember the episode of the fish, I remain free of the hook.

 

King: Who is your seventeenth guru?

Dattatreya: A prostitute who knows that she doesn’t love her customers, nor do they love her. Yet she waits for them and, when they come, enacts the drama of love. She isn’t satisfied with the artificial love she gives and receives, nor with the payment she is given. I realized that all humans are like prostitutes and the world, like the customers, is enjoying us. The payment is always inadequate and we feel dissatisfied. Thus, I became determined not to live like a prostitute. Instead, I will live with dignity and self-respect, not expecting this world to give me either material or internal satisfaction, but to find it myself by going within.

 

King: Who is your eighteenth guru?

Dattatreya: My eighteenth guru is a little bird who was flying with a worm in its beak. Larger birds flew after him and began pecking him. They stopped only when the little bird dropped the worm. Thus, I learned that the secret of survival lies in renunciation, not in possession.

 

King: Who is your nineteenth guru, sir?

Dattatreya: My nineteenth guru is the baby that cries when it is hungry and stops when it suckles at its mother’s breast. When the baby is full, it stops feeding and nothing its mother does can induce it to take more milk. I learned from this baby to demand only when I really need. When it’s provided, I must take only what I require and then turn my face away.

 

King: And your twentieth guru?

Dattatreya: A young woman whom I met when I was begging for alms. She told me to wait while she prepared a meal. Her bracelets jangled as she cooked, so she removed one. But the noise continued, so she took off all her bracelets, one by one, until only one remained. Then there was silence. Thus, I learned that wherever there is a crowed, there is noise, disagreement, and dissension. Peace can be expected only in solitude.

 

King: And your twenty-first guru?

Dattatreya: A snake that makes no hole for itself, but who rests in holes other creatures have abandoned, or curls up in the hollow of a tree for a while, and then moves on. From this snake, I learned to adjust myself to my environment and enjoy the resources of nature without encumbering myself with a permanent home. Creatures in nature move constantly, continually abandoning their previous dwellings. Therefore, while floating along the current of nature, I find plenty of places to rest. Once I am rested, I move on.

 

King: And your twenty-second guru?

Dattatreya: My twenty-second guru is an arrow maker who was so absorbed in shaping his arrowheads that the king and his entire army passed without attracting his attention. Thus I learned from the arrow makes to be absorbed in the task at hand, no matter how big or small. The more one-pointed my focus, the greater my absorption, and the greater my absorption, the more subtle my awareness. The goal is subtle, and can only be grasped by subtle awareness.

 

King: Your twenty-third guru?

Dattatreya: My twenty-third guru is a little spider who built itself a nice cozy web. When a larger spider chased it, it rushed to take refuge in its web. But it ran so fast that it got entangled and was swallowed by the bigger spider. Thus, I learned that we create webs for ourselves by trying to build a safe haven, and as we race along the threads of these webs, we become entangled and are consumed. There is no safety to be found in the complicated webs of our actions.

 

King: And who is your twenty-fourth guru?

Dattatreya: My twenty-fourth guru is a worm who was caught by a songbird and placed in its nest. As the bird began singing, the worm became so absorbed in the song that it lost all awareness of its peril. Watching this little creature become absorbed in a song in the face of death reminded me that I, too, must develop the art of listening so that I my become absorbed in the eternal sound, nada, that is always within me.

 

Listening to Dattatreya, the king realized that the wisdom of this sage flowed from his determination to keep the goal of life firmly fixed in his awareness and from his ability to find the teachings everywhere he turned.

god & God

In Ajah Dharma God is often thrown around, first off in the most basic sense God is the supreme without equal..

In Ajah Dharma “God” with a capital “G” is the unified absolute of the universe. It is without attributes and is therefore very impersonal to the Jiva(individual).

  • Ajah, the one thing
  • Energy
  • Brahman of Hinduism
  • the Tao in Taoism
  • the Universe in New Age thought
  • the Dharmakaya in Tibetan Buddhism
  • Buddha-Nature In Zen
  • Weheguru of the Sihks
  • the Unknowable God  of the Gnostics
  • Dryghten in Wicca
  • the Monad in Greek Philosophy

“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao;
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth.”  -Lao Tzu

However god with a lower case “g” is an illusionary character, a mind & body expression of the one energy, often called a diety. the diety can appear as any infinit number of forms such as gods, angels, totem animals, etc. They are a dualistic expression of the one reality and so can be understood as the higher self as all separation is an illusion conjured by the mind. Ajah Dharma teaches that when a Jiva(individual) thinks of Ajah, the Supreme Cosmic Spirit is projected upon the limited, finite human mind and appears as a diety. Therefore, the mind projects human attributes, such as personality, motherhood, and fatherhood on the Supreme Being. An interesting metaphor is that when the “reflection” of the Cosmic Spirit falls upon the mirror of the mind, it appears as the Supreme Lord. Ajah is not thought to have such attributes in the true sense. However it is very helpful to project such attributes onto Ajah. This is also known as a personal deity.

“Therefore all things of the universe worship Tao and exalt Teh.” — Lao Tzu

In Taoist terms it means that Ajah(Tao) is worshiped though dualistic expression or distinction(Teh)…

—————————————————————————————————

On that note someone said that God is not real and is only a projection of our higher self… This is a common Buddhist perspective.

This is incorrect. Because the lesser comes from the higher, God is not fictional, you are, and for any who would ask this question or draw this conclusion. I’d say that God is the only real thing and anything, including you is false.

Then on the other side of the spectrum you have Hindus who believe this truth but deny the existence of the world, this is also incorrect as all matter is the one body of the one God. The worlds real, however our perception of it is an illusion.

just remember

Matter/Female – the body of God

collective-awareness/Male – the Soul of God

Moola mantra

Om
Sat Chit Ananda, Parabrahma
Purushothama, Paramatma
Sri Bhagavathi, Sametha
Sri Bhagavathe, Namaha

 

While giving the Oneness Blessing to groups or to individuals, one or more musical versions of the Moolamantra are often played in the background by playing various recordings of it. Following is the detailed explanation.

This mantra in Sanskrit evokes the living Divine Presence (God), asking protection and freedom from all sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that adores the great creator and liberator, who out of love and compassion manifests, to protect us, in an earthly form. This Moolamantra has given great peace and joy to people all over the world, who have chanted, or even listened to it. It has the power to transport ones mind to the state of causeless love and limitless joy. The calmness that the mantra can give is to be experienced, not spoken about. Here is the key with which any door to spiritual treasure could be opened. A tool which can be used to achieve all desires. A medicine which cures all ills. The nectar that can set man free! All auspiciousness and serenity is yours simply by chanting or listening to this magnificent Moolamantra.

Whenever you chant the Moolamantra even without knowing the meaning of it, that itself carries power. But when you know the meaning and chant with that feeling in your heart then the energy would flow million times more powerful. Therefore it is essential to know the meaning of the Mantra when you use it.

The Mantra is like calling a name. Just like when you call a person he comes and makes you feel his presence, the same manner when you chant this mantra, the supreme energy manifests everywhere around you. As the Universe is Omnipresent, the supreme energy can manifest anywhere and any time. It is also very important to know that the invocation with all humility, respect and with great necessity makes the presence stronger.

Meaning

Om Om has 100 different meanings. It is said ‘In the beginning was the Supreme word and the word created every thing. That word is Om ‘. If you are meditating in silence deeply, you can hear the sound Om within. The whole creation emerged from the sound Om. It is the primordial sound or the Universal sound by which the whole universe vibrates. Om also means inviting the higher energy. This divine sound has the power to create, sustain and destroy, giving life and movement to all that exist.
Sat Chit Ananda
Sat The all penetrating existence that is formless, shapeless, omnipresent, attribute less, and quality less aspect of the Universe. It is the Un manifest. It is experienced as emptiness of the Universe. We could say it is the body of the Universe that is static. Every thing that has a form and that can be sensed, evolved out of this Un manifest. It is so subtle that it is beyond all perceptions. It can only be seen when it has become gross and has taken form. We are in the Universe and the Universe is in us. We are the effect and Universe is the cause and the cause manifests itself as the effect.
Chit The Pure Consciousness of the Universe that is infinite, omni-present manifesting power of the Universe. Out of this is evolved everything that we call Dynamic energy or force. It can manifest in any form or shape. It is the consciousness manifesting as motion, as gravitation, as magnetism, etc. It is also manifesting as the actions of the body, as thought force. It is the Supreme Spirit.
Ananda Bliss, love and friendship nature of the Universe. When you experience either the Supreme Energy in this Creation ( Sat ) and become one with the Existence or experience the aspect of Pure Consciousness ( Chit ), you enter into a state of Divine Bliss and eternal happiness ( Ananda ). This is the primordial characteristic of the Universe, which is the greatest and most profound state of ecstasy that you can ever experience when you relate with your higher Consciousness.
Parabrahma The Supreme Being in His Absolute aspect; one who is beyond space and time. It is the essence of the Universe that is with form and without form. It is the Supreme creator.
Purushothama This has different meanings. Purusha means soul and Uthama means the supreme, the Supreme spirit. It also means the supreme energy of force guiding us from the highest world. Purusha also means Man, and Purushothama is the energy that incarnates as an Avatar to help and guide Mankind and relate closely to the beloved Creation.
Paramatma The supreme inner energy that is immanent in every creature and in all beings, living and non-living. It’s the indweller or the Antaryamin who resides formless or in any form desired. It’s the force that can come to you whenever you want and wherever you want to guide and help you.
Sri Bhagavathi The female aspect, which is characterized as the Supreme Intelligence in action, the Power ( The Shakti ). It is referred to the Mother Earth ( Divine Mother ) aspect of the creation.
Sametha Together or in communion with.
Sri Bhagavathe The Male aspect of the Creation, which is unchangeable and permanent.
Namaha Salutations or prostrations to the Universe that is Om and also has the qualities of Sat Chit Ananda , that is omnipresent, unchangeable and changeable at the same time, the supreme spirit in a human form and formless, the indweller that can guide and help in the feminine and masculine forms with the supreme intelligence. I seek your presence and guidance all the time.

What is it to be an Ajah? what is Ajah dharma?

The way of Ajah is the way of wisdom

Ajah Dharma
Ajah Dharma is a tradition which holds the view of non-dualism (advaita). A principal cause of suffering in Ajah is the ego , the delusion of identifying oneself as an individual separate from the surroundings. From the ego arises the desires, pride, emotional attachments, anger, lust, etc., thus putting humans on the path of destruction. According to Ajah, the true nature of all humans is the same as God(Ajah), and everything that originates with God. The goal of a Ajah is to conquer the ego and realize one’s true nature or self, which is the same as God’s.

Everything is God the unborn, the ajah, the homogenous energy of entirety of everything. The realm of the one love.
Because of false association with ego-identity, us and them is percieved, and duality is seen. In this realm spirit(yang) and matter(yin) are percieved as seperate… we must reunite them through sacred knowledge. The realm of duality
the realm of all things, with no purpose and a percieved aloneness, arising from the ego confusing the sense of one-ness with alone-ness. This is a sad place to be and leads to desperation, depression, and spiritual decay
the Ajah is one who knows his oneness with God he roams the world like a deity

Ajah believe in one God. Which is the basis of all reality
Ajah teaches equality of all people. Ajah teaches that people of different races, religions, of sex or sexual orientation are all equal in the eyes of God, no matter what their dharma, whether they are a worker or a king. Ajah teaches the full equality of men and women.

Ajah emphasizes daily devotion to the remembrance of God. One should remember God at all times.

Ajah teaches religious freedom. All people have the right to follow their own path to God-realization without condemnation or coercion from others.

Ajah emphasizes a moral and ethical life. A Ajah should represent moral responsibility and righteousness.

Ajah teaches love & good will towards all beings

Ajah are supposed to practice wisdom, morality, and concentration.

Ajah is a name for God meaning “never born” or “unborn”
since everything is God, those who know this truth adopt the name Ajah,
for they know there oneness with God and of there inherent immortality.

Those who are asleep think they are dieing, because there bodies& minds are failing, but you are truelly spirit, the eternal. The one soul shared by all.
The Soul is likened to a drop of water, God is likened to a vast ocean, yet they are both water.

The Ajah is devoid of unreal pleasures. The real heart of this philosophy is the true love for Ajah- the cosmic spirit, whom is the highest joy. Ajah loves everything with the same intensity like his/her love for God. It is like unconditional love to all beings equally as he/she sees the world as the manifestation of the cosmic spirit. Nothing is seperate from Ajah. Every things around is Ajah in one form or other and he should passionately embrace it.

Ajah has always been, for all beings are Ajah, although absolute he is to be meditated on as dwelling within the center of your being. Ajah is also the name given to a spiritual warrior, one who combats the universal enemy: self-ignorance(ego) ultimate source of suffering, Those who are awake. The Spiritual Warrior is a person who challenges the dreams of fear, lies, false beliefs, and judgments that create suffering and unhappiness in his or her life. It is a war that takes place in the heart and mind of a man or woman. The quest of the Spiritual Warrior is the same as spiritual seekers around the world. The Spiritual Warrior faces this challenge with the clarity and awareness that this war is fought within himself and that Truth and unconditional love are on the other side of these battles. The Ajah, the spiritual warrior’s only complete and right practice is to compassionately teach the ways of wisdom, peace &understanding. The Ajah is one who studys, worships, serves, and use the mystical energy that is Ajah. To win the war against fear requires awareness, courage, discipline, and commitment to transform the emotional body. These are some of the characteristics of a Ajah warrior.

As a spiritual warrior the Ajah is willing to fight for peace and justice, when the goodness & peace is threatened, but remember, The Ajah fights only as a last resort. The Ajah trusts in God first and seeks other ways to resolve a situation: patience, logic, tolerance, attentive listening, negotiation, persuasion, calming techniques. The first and most vital tool of the Ajah warrior is awareness. It is easy to we think we are aware, but pure awareness has no thinking involved. It has no thinking because it has no interpretation. Awareness is to perceive with clarity the truth of what is happening without interpretation or opinion. In a moment of awareness the dialogue in the mind stops. We are “seeing” from a point or view separate from the reasoning part of our mind. This could be described as an epiphany. Practiced seer’s live in this awareness in every moment. Awareness is essential because it is the state of consciousness that allows us to discern between the facts and the Truth. Self awareness is the clarity to know who and what you are, and not get caught up in self important images of ourselves. These self important images in our mind distort our sense of who we are. False images can lead us to low self esteem and self confidence, or they can take us into being self centered. If you have an idea of who you are, then consider that you are not that idea in your mind. You are the one creating the idea, and observing it. Self awareness that you are not any of those images in your mind is essential to becoming free of self importance.

The Ajah warrior has the courage to question challenge his or her own beliefs. By challenging our own beliefs we can dissolve the lies that cause our suffering. To challenge our own beliefs requires courage because it means the end of our illusion of safety. Ajah warrior must have the discipline to practice deal with their own mind without someone else providing the motivation. An Ajah must exercise their own will at the command of their heart, not an outside authority figure. This often means going against the fearful opinions in our mind that tempt us with illusions of punishment and rewards. We must always have the discipline to follow our own heart.
The Ajah must love him self. The Ajah then extends that love to humanity. The commitment is required because in our journey we will certainly fumble and fall many times. It is in having a strong commitment that we get back up again. Discerning the will of God is often achieved through night-long “reasonings”, part theological debate, study session, & or part prayer meeting and meditation, which lead to a understanding of truth through realization of our union with Ajah. The mission of Ajah is to give people enlightenment for good judgment, personal growth, and self-awareness. May the exposure and immersion into philosophy and the arts expand your perspectives and lift them beyond the limits of your own perceptions and culture.

Ajah behavior is to uphold self-discipline, responsibility, and love. The Ajah conquers emotions and materialism. The Ajah honor life, the One Force and the master-student relationship. Ajah offer aid to the weak; and compassion to all people. Rules of engagement with the one people include notions as understanding the good & bad in all things, learning to see accurately, opening one’s eyes to what was not evident and exercising caution, even in small, trivial matters. Above all Ajah uphold their duty to the world & embrace the One.

To become an Ajah say the oath at the alter of your choosing

The AJAH OATH

As Sacred Ajah(God) as my witness,
I shall realize my oneness with the eternal spirit.
I shall merge all opposites of duality.
So that I may be a teacher
and protector of the one people.
With true love for Ajah.
I swear this, my holy pledge.
I declare I Am.
OM SHANTI.

Declaration of Truth

 

 

the truth is that all separation is illusion,

the truth is that all is God.

 

you are God since you exist.

The truth is that all is verily the self.

 

the one is the immanent.

the one is the transcendental.

 

the one appears as two…

the God is awareness, and can be understood as a universal spirit,

the feeling of existence, the permanent & unchangeable.

The God is matter, and can be understood as solidified awareness,

the forever transitory nature.

This is commonly thought of as two sides of the same coin.

 

the truth can be understood intellectually through pantheistic monism,

but can only be experienced through true meditation.

 

I exist only as the supreme self, to say otherwise is to come from Ego.

This serpent noise is the body and the mind.

Sit restfully in the peace & joy of the self.

 

There is no need to write laws for those awakened to the Truth,

laws are for the sleeping.

Those who are awake love the self, and therefore love all the world

because everything; no, the only thing is the self….

love thy neighbor, as you love thy self.

 

the sleeping say it is blasphemy to say you are one with God,

I tell you now the true blasphemy is thinking you are independent from God, for all is

God, the supreme self.

may peace and love encompass all thought….

 

I AM the supreme self, homogenous existence , boundless as the sky.

 

You have & will always be,

you are immortal

you are unborn

you have never been born

you have never been born

you are God, you are the self

you are me.

 

I love you.

May truth be with you always.

OM SHANTI

the truth

“I have nothing to say, and I’m saying it, and that’s poetry” – John Cage

 

 

There is only Brahman the absolute,

who is Brahman? Brahman is the true self.

What is the self? The self is emptiness…

 

how does one achieve emptiness,

through the breakdown of the false self, the destruction of the Ego.

 

One of my teachers told me,

how do you fill a glass of water…with air?

You pour out the water.

 

In a similar fashion we pour out our thoughts and dwell with in emptiness…

and in this emptiness, one is divine.

 

The self is the soul, the self is God.

There is but one true God.

So there is one true self, shared by all.

 

he who awakens to his true form, shedding the false delusions of ego, is free.

He who is free , awakened to his inner divine nature, is a buddha.

 

But why, you ask, does one want to be empty? why be the self? Why be a buddha?

 

Long ago it is said that a student asked such a question…

the Guru Baba brought the confused student a pale of water.

The student looked even more confused…

the Guru pointed at the bucket and said

“the water reflects the moon above..

just as the water reflects the world, our mind mirrors it’s environment.”

 

Then the Guru tossed out the water. Then said…

“now what do you see?”

“the bucket”the student replied..

the Guru smiled.

“Exactly, when one is empty, all one sees is God.”

 

 

Everything is Brahman, everything is God,

all is verily the self.

 

You are, I AM, the homogeonous energy of existance, unborn, and boundless as the sky.

 

You are me and I am you, seperation is truelly an illusion.

Yet, you me, that this, all these things are but conceptualized within the awareness of Brahman.

 

Why is an eternal question. One would naturally think that the Spirit manifests in order to experience, through One’s many eyes and ears.

 

What is this illusion…. the illusion is thinking you are limited in anyway, to think you are seperate in anyway.

There is only one.
