Have to walk like a Sanyaasi - No Matter what the Path

seven steps

Those seven steps

Those seven experiences that changed the direction along with my condition.
वो सात अनुभव जो मेरी दशा के साथ दिशा को भी बदल गए। 

It was at that moment that when I passed through it, I came to recognize the era.
वो पल ही ऐसा था कि जब मैं उस में से गुज़री तो युग की अदा पहचान गई। 

That thinking was such that when that 'thought' came, it changed the direction of life itself.
वो सोच ही कुछ ऐसी थी कि जब वो 'सोच' आई तो जीवन की दिशा को ही बदल कर चली गई। 

That breath was such that when that 'breath' came, it was identified with the entirety of life.
वो सांस ही कुछ ऐसी थी कि जब वो 'सांस' आई तो जीवन की सम्पूर्णता से पहचान करवा गई।

That first step was such that it had the same comfort as 'Destination'.
वो पहला कदम ही ऐसा था, जिस में मंज़िल जैसा ही आराम था। 

Seeing myself was something that I felt shy from myself.
मेरा खुद को देखना ही कुछ ऐसा था कि मैं खुद से ही शर्माने लगी।

I knew the 'confluence of death and life' when I was lost in a moment of deep living.
'मौत और जीवन का संगम', यह मैंने उस वक़्त ही जान लिया था, जब मैं गहरे जीने के पल में अलोप हो गई थी।

That incident was such that my change was inevitable; That incident took such a turn that it was necessary to bow down to me; Bowing: When death was recognized in this bowing, it became necessary for me to live.
वो घटना ही कुछ ऐसी थी कि मेरा बदलना लाज़मी था; उस घटना ने मोड़ ही ऐसे लिया कि मेरा झुकना ज़रूरी था; झुकना: जब इस झुकने में मौत की पहचान आई तो मेरा जीना ज़रूरी हो गया। 

What is Enlightenment?

 What is Enlightenment?

Just as a particle explosion produces an atomic bomb, 
a moment explosion produces enlightenment.

We must live ‘Life’ in the Present moment. What does it mean by living in the Present moment? In order to explain this, I will proceed by using the example of an atom bomb. The, immense explosive power of an atom bomb results from the sudden release of energy upon the splitting, or fission, of the nuclei (or a particle called ‘kan’ in Hindi language). Using this analogy by replacing a particle with moment (‘pal’ in Hindi) or the present ‘Now’ will better help you understand the essence of this post. What I am about to explain to you is quite astonishing, the fact is that I have very little understanding of algebraic concepts, yet in very deep contemplative silence, I am able to comprehend the science behind the explosive power of an atom bomb with much ease including the scientific work, research and contribution by Einstein.
The splitting of a particle and the subsequent splitting of a moment, in comparison has much significance in my experiential life as a whole. What this means is that I ‘see’ myself being separated from everything around ‘me’ namely, relationships, thoughts, feelings and so on. The two examples cited above, namely particle and moment analogy are inadvertently one and the same processes. The latter takes place within us (enlightenment), and the former outside of us (destruction).

The very explosion in the ‘moment’ can be experienced and scientifically proven, in the very words spoken by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, as follows: ‘In the beginning was Truth; in aeon after aeon, there was Truth. Truth is there, and — says Nanak — Truth is what will remain’. The two analogies produce the same resulting explosions no doubt, but of course one is negative and the other positive. Upon explosion and separation, both the particle and the moment return to a state of complete void totally aloof having separated from its qualities (e.g. as is the case with moment in relation to feelings, thoughts and relationships). Thus, it can be said, that the moment upon explosion becomes an aeon or endless time or eternity.
Now, the question remains, how can one equate this phenomenon (eternal time) with regards to experience and that too in ‘Presence’ or the ‘Now’. How therefore, can we begin to live in the Present Now? Allow me to cite you an example, my mother gave birth to me, she is my mother, she nurtures and takes care of me, the relationship I have with my mother stretches over a time period of say 70 years. Now, I wish to see these 70 years in one moment alone. The burning question is, how do I ‘see’ or ‘experience’ and relive the 70 years in a moment? The fact is that, we tend to associate every ‘event’ in life as a separate fragmented incident (and as such these events can be said to be ‘interlinked’ or rather that is how we seem to perceive it) which we term as ‘life filled with experiences’.
Thus, taking the example of each of the events as mentioned above, namely, being born, being nurtured and being looked after, and being clothed etc., as separate incidences then it is fair to say, that the mother that gave birth, the mother that nurtured, the mother that clothed is NOT the same person I address as mother, but it is a different person altogether...

Following onwards, let us assume that I have neither a mind nor the eyes to definitively say that the person with respect to the events having taken place is indeed my mother. Since after all, it is the conscious mind that is responsible for differentiating the frame of events that have elapsed in the life span of 70 years as already explained.
It is the very same conscious mind that is responsible for associating or tying the bygone events with the current experiences unfolding. This is the major reason and the cause why one experiences the dreadful effects of pain, anger, hatred, and all the negative emotions collectively. These negative emotions that one carries over from the past actions (which of course can become ‘triggers’ in the present life), are largely magnified by our unacceptance to let go of the past. However, when one relinquishes the mind-body identification resulting from seeing LIFE as separate events and begins seeing or witnessing Life purely as a Happening by practicing the art of living in the PRESENT can one taste the ambrosial fruit of absolute FREEDOM HERE and NOW also called ENLIGHTENMENT.

Natural death?

Our life is such a state, in which we are all living by drinking poison. Whether we are good or we are bad; Whether we are right or we are wrong; All of us have lost your life. In this state, we all commit suicide. Whether to commit suicide slowly or do it quickly. There are very few who die a natural death.
Now the question will come in you, to whom do you call natural death? A natural death is an accident in this life, when we ourselves are filled with the desire to depart from life at our own will, the desire that comes from us in happiness and comfort not in pain.

A Beautiful State of life

Our life is a beautiful state, in which everything good and bad happens. Our thoughts and feelings are the roads of this state. Our desires are just like our local train. Our 'motive' becomes our 'highway'. Then we easily reach the destination without hindrance. Meaning that it is important to have a purpose in life

Melody of our reality

We are the king in this state of our life and we are the public. When we dismiss this position in our own court, our human dimension starts from that point and from that moment itself. In this dimension, only the melody of our reality is chanted to the right song, only to the tune of the need.

My Awakening

Mother said- act wisely
The father said - I am worried about you
There is no difference between the two
 So i just started loving

Mother said- Is the daughter like this?
 The father said - daughter is like this
 I have never learned to see anyone in any relationship,
I only saw '5 Tattas',
 So how would I see the relationship, religion or color?

Mother said - think of yourself
The father said - think of all
 What is the difference?
 When I looked at the lives of both of them, I stopped thinking
What was the result?

When I stopped thinking, my life flowed between me and you and I went on living every moment.

Who am I

I have a small identity of who I am, which I have written with spirit

When the questions raised in me took me to the ground of silence - I did not know; Then when my questions sprouted - I did not even know this; Then when thousands of experiences bloomed in me - I did not know; Then when my life was happy and I started dancing freely - I did not even know it. Today, when I saw that 40 years of my life had passed in that life - what the world calls 'spiritual life' - and I have always lived in it, then today my question keeps pointing fingers at these 40 years 'I spent this 40 years under what name and with what thought?' When my experiences gave me pin and paper in my hands - I did not even know. When today I have to give myself a name, then what name should I give, and whom should I name? Experiences gave me the art of writing, Experiences took birth from silence, And 40 years had passed. When today I feel that all this is what the world has called meditation, chanting, Dhyana, worship and what is called spiritual life. All of this went on in my life or should I say that I went through it all. Today I only know that I have always lived my life by witnessing what the Vedas called 'Neti Neti'. If silent meant meditation and my questions were the surreal-way for me - because the questions were born from soul. Today, when these experiences are filled with excitement to write themselves and my experiences that want to give themselves a shape, people say that - I am writing this while I see that it is my experiences themselves Writing. I am not a scribe, my experiences are rending itself. So what should I tell you to identify myself today that 'I am this, this is me?' I realize that I do not know this, I give it to all of you that you can give whatever you want to recognize me.

Beauty always has one tone

There will be beauty here as well, but there will definitely be such a spirituality, which we will not yet know. Beauty means that rhythm; There is a tone in rhythm, a tone, a rhythm, a sound, so beauty means that this part or this thing is the melody of a single note. Whether it is thinking, feeling, experience, whatever it is - just having a rhythm is a proof that it reveals some law or the other.
Beauty always has one tone

माननीय प्यार , आज मैं खुद को आप के आगे सन्मानित करना चाहती हूँ कि मैं आप की रचना हूँ ; और खुदा के आगे मैं खुद को धन्यवाद का उपहार देना चाहती हूँ कि 'धन्यवाद शहीर ' कि आप ने खुदा से प्यार किया। हर किर्या के लिए धन्यवाद
