Sitting with the Master

I just completed writing my very first eBook, titled ‘Cancer: A death sentence or a wake-up call? You Decide’ in less than 2 months! I was utterly amazed by the whole process of creation especially when I struggled to complete another book which I started writing for the last 2 years.

What’s the secret?

I discovered that many of my best creative expressions happened whenever I sat with my master, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (lovingly known as Swamiji), in Shaktinipada (feeling connection). Whether it is downloading certain solutions for creating new programs or developing a tailored program for a client or structuring the content for the eBook, sitting with the master is the best way to tap into the infinite Source of all knowledge.

To quote from the Vedic scripture called Guru Gita, which Sadashiva revealed the mystery of Guru to His consort, Devi Parvati, it says that ‘O lovely-faced one (Parvati), listen to my words and trust, for this Truth is most rare and unknown to anyone else in the three worlds. Guru is Brahman, the Pure Cosmic Consciousness, the Source of all that is, and none other than Brahman itself. This is the truth, this is the truth, there is no doubt. Therefore, a wise one should indeed make an effort to attain the Guru. The illusion that creates the world, that veiled knowledge originating from ignorance, resides in the body. He, by whose light, true knowledge arises is known by the word “GURU”. All sins are purified by serving the Guru’s holy feet. Thus, the embodied soul becomes Brahman. By the mere remembrance of whom, the knowledge of the Self (the inner awakening) dawns in one by itself; He, that Guru only is one’s entire wealth. Therefore, worship the Guru.’

Be Aware of Your Mind

Yesterday I was reading the notes of Yoga Sutras 181 & 182 by the great sage, Patanjali as interpreted by Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) and I found so many clicks which could help humanity become aware of the workings of the mind and how we can raise ourselves to our peak possibility.

Here are some sacred truths about the human mind that you need to grasp:

By the nature of the mind, it jumps from this to that and that to this and goes on and on. The mind is the jump between consciousness and thought. It is the constant jump that we do and we justify it due to our own ignorance of trusting the mind and others’ minds which lead us into suffering and you blame Existence or God. It is like you drink the poison and you expect your enemy to die. By blaming God, you are not going to destroy the real enemy – which is your unstable MIND.
