Work can enhance the energy, if the attitude towards work is positive. Don’t treat work as a burden, as the same can dissipate your energy.
The next birth can be with a different brain but it will be with the same mind of this birth. Hence clean it as much as you can.
A journey towards higher consciousness
Emotion is energy in motion. When it is witnessed equanimously, the energy in motion transforms to spiritual energy.
To be happy is very very simple. It is in the simplicity, it is in the innocence of very small things. If you are looking at a tree and your look is 100%.You are happy. The moment the mind doesn't sleep and communicates only from heart, there is happiness. You are looking at the stars...the look is 100%...you are happy. You are drinking water...the drinking is 100%...you are looking at the water...smelling the water...feeling the touch of the water...hearing the water...then, the water becomes the tongue and the tongue becomes the water. That itself is 'Happiness'. You are eating your food...be 100%.You will be happy. Never sacrifice this moment for the next moment. Because, all the next moments are originating from the failed moments of the past. All the future is nothing but a projection of the past. Tomorrow becomes today, tomorrow. Live your today. Live this moment 100% and that is Happiness. Happiness is not something to be searched. It is an inner phenomenon. You need not go anywhere for that. All going away will take you away. You will be lost in your direction. You will be wasting a lot of time. Happiness is a very simple game. It is in the small things of your life...in the very work you are doing, you can be happy. Happiness has nothing to do with success or failure. Happiness is a heart phenomenon...which is beyond polarities. We have not yet known the real happiness. Sometimes we are more happy and sometimes less happy. But we have not experienced the happiness through heart. The moment you become heart phenomenon, you will be utterly happy and you will be able to love everybody. The Fundamental law of happiness is, being 'here' and 'now'. Accept whatever comes every moment and participate in it 100%, without any expectations. Happiness is reserved for you. Whatever work you have, let the background be silence. Even while meditating, don't think there should not be any noise around you. If your living is 100% in that moment, the noise is no more a disturbance. It is absolutely harmonious. Everything will become a rhythm in life. Ego can never be happy and your inner self can never be unhappy. All name, riches, achievements etc will strengthen your ego. When you are total, you will not join with anything. You will become an absolute witness only when you are 100%. Totally participating in whatever you are doing. Only then can you be happy.
The things around us which cause stimulation are called Stimuli like smelling, seeing, hearing, tasting, touch etc. They cause responses in us. If you respond exactly to a situation without being influenced by the past, then you are Pro-active. That action is called 'Pro-action’. The ability to respond is called responsibility. There is another way of responding to a situation where the past knowledge interferes with your present perception. That is called as 'Reaction'. This is because of ignorance. You will be pro-active only when you are conscious. All the actions of children are pro-active. Response is pro-active. Actions of an adult are Reactions. All the actions of a Meditator are pro-active. All the reactions will add samskaras.
Doing the pranayamas like Naadi shodhana, Mental Naadi shodhana, Anuloma viloma, Bhramari, Udgeetha pranayama, Ujjayi pranayama is very good for the pregnant women and also for the baby inside. Now it is researched that these practices give a wonderful baby with good physical health and mental health. It will have tremendous results if they do it from the first month itself. Lucky are those who know it even before their marriage, before conceiving, before the sex act ...even that act can be performed in a divine manner. The same act has 3 ramifications. It can be a Tamaswik act for pleasure or it can be a Rajaswik act for productivity or it can be a Satwik act to get the orgasm for liberation...Samadhi. You will naturally enter into Meditation for the first time during orgasm. It is also Meditation but for a very small period...the perfect state of absolute nothingness, a state of Bliss. It is the same state of Meditation. If you know it before marriage the whole sex act can be performed in a different manner. The male will be Shiva and the female will be Parvathi. You will be Ardhanareeshwara. There will be no manipulation on the other. It will be absolutely with divinity. You will thank the other. But what is happening now is there is aversion on each other. Both the partners have hatred to each other. Why?...because your satisfaction, your happiness is dependent on the other. That's why you will have jealousy to your life partner. Now the whole act, if changed into another paradigm, will be beautiful. You will almost thank your life partner in your heart. While conceiving... when the egg and the ovum come together...when the fertilization takes place in that meditative mood, a God will born. Because, the Atma which is going round will always be looking for a womb of a similar nature. That Atma which wants to be liberated will come into your womb. You will conceive a God inside. As Atma you wanted the same parents you presently have. That's why we are born to them. You wanted the same neighbor, same job, same children we presently have. That's why we got them. If you do Kapalabhati and Bhastrika in a very slow pace, the navel area gets a movement. The blood circulation improves and the food supply will be good. All the organs and all the systems of the foetus will be healthy. What happens if the body is healthy?...healthy body gets a healthy mind. Physiology is connected with psychology and psychology is connected with physiology. If you change the psychology, physiology will change and if you change the physiology, the psychology will change. They are a part of one reality. Body and mind are not 2 different things. It's called Body-Mind complex. If you do Udgeetha pranayama what happens?...there will be a rhythm when you repeat 'Om...’ all the cells will vibrate. All the samskaras will get cleansed in the womb itself. Kumbhaka (holding of breath) should not be done during pregnancy. Everything should be done in a very slow pace. The Meditations like Relaxation Meditation, Beginners' Meditation, Advanced Meditation will be powerful. Even the child can hear them. He will be blessed. You are connected with your previous birth. It's not incidental that you have come hear and you are hearing me...You are a very fortunate person in your previous birth...you are continuing your job...I am continuing my past. Life is a cycle till we completely become a part of the total divinity... the wholesomeness... the poorna. Once you become that wholesomeness, there is no need for your coming back. You will be a part of the light of the stars...you will be a part of the beauty of the nature...you will be a part of the beauty of the music of the whole existence...then you will be a part of the God...part of the divinity. The whole travel, the whole mystery, the esoteric journey is only towards the ultimate divinity. You may name it as Allah, Eshwara, Father in the heaven or Buddha...it is the same God. Words are immaterial. It is the same God...it is the same ultimate arrival. Once you are into this journey, it will be very powerful... very transforming... very unavoidable. Pregnancy is the beginning point. Even in the sex act, if you know which naadi is operating, it can be done in a divine way. If the female naadi (Ida, the left breath), is active for the male and the male naadi (Pingala, the right breath) is active in the female, the dominant role and the submissive role should be taken by the partners accordingly. This was told by Shiva in Shivasutras. That's why you will find all such postures in many sacred temples like Khajuraho, Konark....all this knowledge is secretly hidden. What is important is to conceive a baby in that particular manner of divinity. Then something superior will happen. The child may not be the president, prime minister or an IAS officer but he becomes God. If you keep Brahmamudra while doing Kapalabhati and Bhastrika it will be much more beneficial. It stimulates the navel area and the nutrients are supplied to the foetus properly. The baby is connected with the umbilical cord which supplies it all the nutrients. But it should be done in a very low pace. Don't do it after one month. Remember, all these things should be done under the supervision of a trained Teacher. You can do some of the Asanaas which can help the muscle coordination...mobility of that part during delivery. Cissarian will not be required. The Asanas like Markataasan give stamina to the internal parts. Most importantly Meditation should be done by all the Mothers. If you don't meditate put the Meditation cd at least. Let the baby hear. If you take soft things and good things during pregnancy, good will happen to the baby. As you sow so you reap. If you take honey, you will become honey. If you take whiskey, drugs, strong spices, negative thoughts...what happens to the child?...so, be good...you will get a God
Nature dislikes vacuum. Nature aborts vacuum. Air...water flow to the places where there is emptiness. Even thoughts enter those who are idle. The flow is always from high pressure to low pressure. People sometimes are lost in thoughts...they fly to so many places and they remain unconscious for a long period till someone disturb. The speed of thoughts is faster than even that of light. What I tell you is you go on doing Meditation then your thoughts will reduce day by day. Involve in some work totally. Say if you are a glass...just be in that totally. Whatever might be the work, involve in that totally and don't allow the thoughts to come. Go on practicing this in each and every work...even while walking, talking, bathing, eating...be totally alive in that work. Whenever you are in some work, there will not be any space to thoughts and whenever you are not doing any work, thoughts will definitely come. If your mind exists heart cannot exist. If heart exists mind will not exist...it is simple...the presence of heart means you are totally involved in the action with 100% participation. If you don't involve totally in the action, thoughts will enter you. If you get a thought it means that you are not participating in the action totally. What is mind?...mind is a flow of thoughts...What are thoughts?...they are related to past or future. If you are in the past or future, you can't be in the present moment. If you are in the present, how can you go to the past or future?...how can you get thoughts?...it means that you will be in divinity whenever you are in the present moment. That's the meaning of sachchidaananda. It means being in the present moment...being here and now...being with God. Whenever you are with God, you will not get any thoughts. If you get thoughts, you will not be with God...simple. That's why always be in action. Karmayoga is important. Karmayoga is not just working busily...Karmayoga is working heartily, consciously with 100% participation, with divinity, with childlike nature, with innocence. Then thoughts will not come. Actually the unlived past results in so many thoughts. If you want to do something, do it consciously with total participation. Then it will not haunt you anymore. It will never appear in the future again. If you want to eat Laddu (a sweet), eat it with full participation...be total in its taste, smell, touch...participate totally with all the sensory organs...then it will be totally satisfied and will never haunt you in the future. Whatever is hidden in your subconscious and unconscious minds, will come as thoughts. Thoughts disturb you because you have not satisfied them previously. All the unsatisfied and unfulfilled past will be stored in your sob conscious and unconscious minds and comes out as thoughts. Suppose you want to kiss a girl, but the society will not allow you to do it. Then it goes into your subconscious and unconscious mind and settles there. Whenever you get a chance to do that, you may even rape that girl. All rape, murder, loot are coming from your inside only. They are all hidden inside you. When you totally involve in an activity and live in it totally, it will not become your subconscious or unconscious mind. It will never come as a thought again. Another method to come out of thoughts is to melt your past through Meditation. Take out all the sensations and thoughts, then they don't stay inside you. There are 2 methods to reduce your thoughts. One is living in the moment with full participation and the second one is cleansing all the samskaaras and previous births. If you go on cleansing, they will exhaust. Then thoughts will seize completely. That's why before coming into Meditation you will unconsciously for much time. And after starting Meditation, it reduces. You may slip some times but you will come back. Slowly you will get used to participate in the action fully. Understood?..
If I am remembering the past at this moment, am I in the present or past? And, purposefully thinking about something and getting unwanted thoughts ...are the both same or different?
See, if you want to remember something from the past and you are remembering it, that act of remembering will become the act of this moment...present moment. And also if your body, mind and heart, all are collectively present in the act of remembering...it means that you are in the present moment only. But if you get an unwanted thought while sitting here and listening me, that's different. Suppose you are eating food and suddenly you remember your mother, brother or your girl friend...that is an unwanted thought. The thought has come from somewhere else. That's different from your willful thinking. Now I am speaking. Why my speech is coming logically?...because in this particular moment of speaking, my body, mind and heart are involved in this act completely. But if I get some unwanted thoughts from elsewhere...may be a thought of a problem regarding my professional work or a thought of my next program, that will be different. And suppose I have a problem regarding my professional work. And I have to plan in a certain way and I have to follow some steps to come over the problem...and also I am totally involved in the action...what happens then?...I can successfully solve the problem. But instead of participating in the action totally and consciously, if you are just entertained by the thoughts, can you solve the problem?...the past knowledge will be there in the background but it should not interfere with you present actions. It should complement the present actions. Got it?
When planning becomes the act of your present moment, it is not wrong. But usually that doesn't happen. We go on planning and planning...millions of plans we make but we don't execute anything. That's a waste. If you are action oriented and plan for a work, that's ok. But just dreaming something, imagining something, whiling away the time without doing any action is wrong. Planning without execution is waste. That is not useful to you. See, you can only do the things which you intend to do consciously. But if it is the stuff of your unconscious mind, you can't execute the work. Whenever you are consciously involved in an action, when you are action oriented, then only you can execute a plan. Then you will become an action oriented personality...you will only plan for what you want to do. If you work according to your plan without expecting the result, then you are a Karmayogi. You should be with equanimity and action oriented. That's Karmayoga. Be with action even if the action doesn't give the desired result. See, your dreams should be supported by action. It's good to be action oriented. Thoughts should be the predecessor for the action.
