How to Transcend the Mind in Meditation

    Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 8:25 PM [General]

    "The mind
    is a non-stop chatterbox.

    Always talking talking talking.
    Commenting, judging, defining,
    describing, knowing.

    It is very important
    to become aware of
    the constant noise of the mind.

    If you are involved with it,
    then you cannot be aware of it.

    If you are the one that knows,
    that defines, that describes, that judges,
    then you cannot be aware of it.

    There has to be the willingness
    to either step out
    of that identification with thinking
    so that you can witness it

    or to direct the thought
    process through a technique
    like repeating a mantra,
    self inquiry,
    watching the breath,
    anything that focuses your attention
    so that it is not
    a slave to the thinking process.

    And once there is a build-up
    of focused attention
    or ability to witness thinking,
    then silence begins to make itself known.

    Perhaps it makes itself known
    through Shakti, the subtle energy
    that is felt as bliss
    or perhaps it makes itself known
    through the experience
    of impersonal being
    or perhaps in another way.

    But if you give your attention to it
    in meditation,
    if you allow it,
    at some point,
    the silence begins to take over.

    The silence begins
    to consume all of the noise.
    It consumes all of the limited ideas
    of who you are and what you know,
    until there is nothing left
    for you to hold on to.

    And in that you learn to surrender
    into the silence
    so that there is only silence,
    the nature of which
    is unconditional peace.

    Transformation Happens When You Allow the Intensity

    Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 6:20 PM [General]

    "If you really live
    deeply in spiritual practice
    then this moment is intense.

    Moment to moment,
    life is shaking you
    out of what you know;
    shaking you out of everything
    that is comfortable.

    So much so that
    all you can do is surrender
    to this moment.

    All you can do
    is allow everything
    to be as it is
    and fall deeply
    into impersonal being.

    It is in this that
    deep transformation happens.

    It is in this that
    you really realize
    that you exist beyond everything.

    That you are the personal yet
    you are completely beyond the personal.

    The intensity of the Shakti
    pushes you beyond yourself
    and you learn to remain
    surrendered in this intensity
    with great silence,
    great humility
    as consciousness itself.

    So do not be afraid
    to let yourself
    be in such intensity.

    It may be challenging,
    but if you run away
    from that challenge
    back into everything you know
    and what is comfortable,
    you will miss it.

    Because it is in this intensity
    that you feel the most alive.

    There is some part of you
    that recognizes
    that this is the doorway
    to your freedom.

    My First Satori (Temporary Experience of Enlightenment)

    Thursday, January 12, 2012, 9:31 PM [General]

    I was in college in Vermont, having a bad day.  After classes and meetings with teachers, I went back to my dorm room and sat down to meditate.  When I sat down, I just surrendered.  Not that I knew what surrender was but looking back on it, that was what I did.  I didn't practice a meditation technique; I just accepted all of the insanity that had accumulated that day and gave up, not holding on to anything, not figuring anything out.

    This happened automatically.   And automatically I fell into silence, a place of just blackness.  And for about half an hour there was just this blackness.  It was nothing profound, no spiritual awakening, just almost like being in deep sleep yet fully conscious.

    It was when I came out of this meditation that I noticed something quite amazing.  And this spiritual awakening wasn't a feeling of attaining something, but rather a feeling that something was gone.  That personal sense of "me" with all of its problems and conflicts was not there.  I was still there, still aware of the body, still functioning through the senses, but that stress that I recognized as myself was gone.

    And in that loss there was the sense that I was part of everything. I would say the experience was being one with everything, of oneness but that seems to imply something spiritual.  And I knew nothing about spirituality then, nothing about enlightenment or spiritual awakening or yoga.  I was completely innocent in that regard.  I knew a tiny bit about meditating and that was it.  Not enough to even really say I could meditate properly.  But if I look back on it, it was the experience of "yoga" which means union with the infinite.

    The experience was that this little me was so utterly meaningless.  There was the undeniable sense that I was actually a part of the infinite universe, I was not separate from it.  I could feel that connection, or rather, the lack of separation from it.  There was still the sense of me but it was not separate from everything else.  The borders of separation were gone.  And the feeling of this was incredible bliss and peace.  A sense of freedom like a huge weight had been lifted off of me.  I was happy for no reason.  I felt my true nature as joy.

    Over the years I have had incredible spiritual awakenings including cosmic consciousness, realization of the self, witness consciousness, various samadhis.  But there was something really pure and beautiful about this satori.  One, because it was the first real spiritual awakening and because at the time although I yearned for enlightenment I did not even knew if it existed let alone had read any books about it.  And so here after years of mental anguish was this pure state of happiness.  The feeling of being connected to the universe and that the nature of this oneness was delight.

    I made my way to the dining hall to have lunch.  I remember because I had a vegetarian burger which was one of my favorites.   I found my roommate sitting at a table and tried to tell him what I was experiencing.  But he was deep in his own suffering over a woman he was in love with.  Which was quite funny because it was usually me in that suffering and here I was trying to explain, quite innocently how this little 'me' is totally meaningless and that we are actually a part of the infinite universe and the nature of that was delight.

    But I noticed that in trying to explain my experience that it did no good.  Because it was so new, I thought that if I just told him this secret, he would experience it too.  It was not out of pride I told him, pride was not there.  It was out of love and wanting him to feel this happiness too, this feeling of peace and love that had no reason for being there except that it was naturally there at the essence.

    But my words could not reach him.  My state could not reach him or anyone.  I could feel this almost solid wall of stress in the room that was actively separating itself from oneness, from the experience I was having.  I could feel the stress of the room pressing against me and I knew that I was very alone in my experience, that I would not be able to share it with others and so it was better to keep quiet about it.

    And I also somehow realized in that feeling that once I started to eat my vegie burger that I would also come down from this state.  I say come down but I realized that this experience of spiritual awakening was the natural state and that the sense of separation was unnatural, it was something placed on top of what was already here.  I guess contraction would be a better word.  I knew that once I ate my lunch, I would contract back into my body and mind, back into a sense of being a separate "me" with all of its worries and sufferings and I would lose this experience of oneness. And that this was the way it was supposed to be.

    So I did not try to hold on to my satori.  I ate my lunch and watched as this sense of freedom dissipated.  And by the next day it was pretty much gone, yet there was a new sense of peace, because I had experienced the truth.  In that spiritual awakening I had experienced my natural state of being one with everything and therefore I knew I would experience it again.  I thought it would come the next day or the next week but it didn't.  Yet it left behind a sense of confidence, that this was exactly what I wanted out of life and if I experienced it once, I could realize it again.  That it was possible to actually live in this natural state of being free from this suffering "I" that experienced itself as separate from everything else.

    Years later after an incredible shift in enlightened awareness that changed everything, I discovered a way I could help others experience deep states of meditation and oneness through sound. Simply by listening to meditation music with a very unique sound technology based on shaktipat, they too effortlessly entered deep states of meditation and oneness. Thousands of people all over the world are now meditating to these "Spiritual Awakening CDs" with great success.

    How to Transcend the Mind in Meditation

    Thursday, December 29, 2011, 9:07 PM [General]

    "You cannot enter
    witness consciousness
    if you are still holding on
    to judgments.
    It is not possible.

    Because judgments
    separate you from
    everything else.

    But I am not saying
    "don't have judgments"
    but rather, in meditation,
    turn your attention
    back on to yourself
    and accept what is there.

    Accept whatever thoughts are there,
    whatever feelings are there,
    whatever sensations are there.

    Not in the sense of a self-help idea
    of "I accept and love myself as I am"
    because in that you are still
    placing something on top
    of what is already here.

    But rather
    simply see what is
    without any involvement.

    Perhaps at first
    from an intellectual understanding
    it may be to see you are as you are
    without adding anything on to that.

    But from there,
    if you really accept
    what is happening in this moment
    the personal sense of "me"

    If you really allow
    your thoughts
    and at the same time
    you are aware of your thoughts,
    they no longer are your thoughts.

    By fully relaxing into this moment
    to the point where you can
    notice what is happening
    without any personal involvement
    with it whatsoever,
    a shift happens.

    This sense of
    a personal "me"
    disappears and there
    is simply is-ness.

    The action of thinking
    is there on it's own
    as is-ness itself.

    Everything simply is,
    consciousness simply is,
    existence simply is.
    There is no person
    perceiving it but rather
    the essence of everything
    as consciousness
    is aware of being conscious.
    Not as an object
    but as limitless energy.

    The idea of time disappears
    and there is only
    the eternal now,
    surprising itself
    with it's own delightful
    appearances and disappearances.

    Meditation Technique to Make You Blissful

    Tuesday, December 20, 2011, 9:57 PM [General]

    "If you want to be free of anxiety
    then notice and feel this:
    life is happening in this moment.

    You are not doing this moment,
    you are not making
    this moment happen.
    It is here on its own.

    If you really notice your experience
    in this moment,
    existence is happening.

    And if you disagree,
    if you think
    you are creating yourself
    to exist in this moment,
    then stop existing.

    Go on.

    In trying to stop existing
    you only become more and more aware
    of this sensation of existing.

    And this sense of existing
    cannot be changed or
    manipulated by your thinking.

    Existence is
    happening in this moment
    regardless of
    what you may think
    about it.

    It is happening beyond
    your thinking.
    It is even happening
    in and as your thinking.

    It is the essence of thought,
    the essence of everything.

    "I think therefore I am"
    is a load of nonsense.
    An act of intellectual
    self importance that
    cuts oneself off
    from actually experiencing
    life in this moment.

    Because right now
    existence is happening.

    What you place on top of that
    may be your own doodling.
    But it does not change the fact
    that this moment is,
    life is happening in this moment.
    It is synonymous with this moment.

    If you place your attention
    on this simple experience
    of existing,
    then all of your doodling
    on top of it
    is no longer important.

    You stop being obsessed
    with self importance and worry,
    and experience
    life directly happening
    in this moment.

    And the experience of this
    is unconditional peace.

    And the more you give your
    attention to this feeling of being
    or to the peace itself,
    the more this peace grows.
