shivparvati 111514c The 112 Techniques to Realize Reality given by Lord Shiva to Devi, while She is sitting, in intercourse, on His lap

Devi Asks:
O Shiva, what is your reality?
What is this wonder-filled universe?
What constitutes seed?
Who centers the universal wheel?
What is this life beyond form pervading forms?
How may we enter it fully, above space and time, names and descriptions? Let my doubts be cleared!

Shiva replies:

68. AS A HEN MOTHERS HER CHICKS, MOTHER PARTICULAR KNOWINGS, PARTICULAR DOINGS, IN REALITY.

98. IN ANY POSITION GRADUALLY PERVADE AN AREA BETWEEN THE ARMPITS INTO GREAT PEACE.
99. FEEL YOURSELF AS PERVADING ALL DIRECTIONS, FAR, NEAR.
100. THE APPRECIATION OF OBJECTS AND SUBJECTS IS THE SAME FOR AN ENLIGHTENED AS FOR AN UNENLIGHTENED PERSON. THE FORMER HAS ONE GREATNESS: HE REMAINS IN THE SUBJECTIVE MOOD, NOT LOST IN THINGS.
101. BELIEVE OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, PERVADING.
102. IMAGE SPIRIT SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHIN AND AROUND YOU UNTIL THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE SPIRITUALIZES.
103. WITH YOUR ENTIRE CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE VERY START OF DESIRE, OF KNOWING, KNOW.
104. O SHAKTI, EACH PARTICULAR PERCEPTION IS LIMITED, DISAPPEARING IN OMNIPOTENCE.
105. IN TRUTH FORMS ARE INSEPARATE. INSEPARATE ARE OMNIPRESENT BEING AND YOUR OWN FORM. REALIZE EACH AS MADE OF THIS CONSCIOUSNESS.
106. FEEL THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF EACH PERSON AS YOUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS. SO, LEAVING ASIDE CONCERN FOR SELF, BECOME EACH BEING.
107. THIS CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTS AS EACH BEING, AND NOTHING ELSE EXISTS.
108. THIS CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE SPIRIT OF GUIDANCE OF EACH ONE. BE THIS ONE.
109. SUPPOSE YOUR PASSIVE FORM TO BE AN EMPTY ROOM WITH WALLS OF SKIN - EMPTY.
110. GRACIOUS ONE, PLAY. THE UNIVERSE IS AN EMPTY SHELL WHEREIN YOUR MIND FROLICS INFINITELY.
111. SWEET HEARTED ONE, MEDITATE ON KNOWING AND NOT-KNOWING, EXISTING AND NOT-EXISTING. THEN LEAVE BOTH ASIDE THAT YOU MAY BE.
112. ENTER SPACE, SUPPORTLESS, ETERNAL, STILL.


Osho-7 Commentary Extracts from the Book of Secrets
by Osho:

070713-06 VIGYANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA is five thousand years old and it is exhaustive; complete; it is everything. This is the listing of all the methods possible. Nothing can be added to it.
Vigyan Bhairav Tantra is not philosophical. VIGYANA means consciousness, BHAIRAVA means the state which is beyond consciousness. TANTRA means technique.
So this treatise is a scientific one. Science is not concerned with why, science is concerned with how.
Tantra needs you in your totality. For tantra, doing is knowing, and there is no other knowing.
Tantra starts with Devi's questions. Devi is not just a consort, she is Shiva's other half. It is a dialogue between two lovers. It is a language of love.
Encounter these methods with a fresh mind. Play with them. Find one you like and stick with it for three months. Who knows what may happen?

Truth is always here. It is already the case. It is not something to be achieved in the future. YOU are the truth just here and now, so it is not something which is to be created or something which is to be devised or something which is to be sought. If you do a technique, your mind will turn from its journey into the future or the past. Suddenly you will find yourself in the present. That is why Shiva has given techniques, with no intellectual introduction.

Use each technique as given. Do not mix techniques.

Devi Asks:
O Shiva, what is your reality?
What is this wonder-filled universe?
What constitutes seed?
Who centers the universal wheel?
What is this life beyond form pervading forms?
How may we enter it fully, above space and time, names and descriptions? Let my doubts be cleared!

The first eight techniques are concerned with breathing.

You are breathing continuously from the moment of birth to the moment of death. Everything changes between these two points, but between these two points of birth and death, you must breathe.

Breathing is constant and YOU are not needed. Whether you are conscious or in a deep coma, you will breathe.

Your breath is a bridge between you and your body. It is also a bridge between you and the universe. The body is just the universe which has come to you, which is nearer to you. So, breath is also the bridge between you and space & time. Isn't it significant that YOU cannot be found in space & time? Your breath is the bridge.

Breath has two points. One is where it touches the body and the universe, and another is where it touches you and that which transcends the universe; the no-body.

AMIGOSANCHES-2277190 1. RADIANT ONE, THIS EXPERIENCE MAY DAWN BETWEEN TWO BREATHS. AFTER BREATH COMES IN (DOWN) AND JUST BEFORE TURNING UP (OUT) - THE BENEFICENCE.

Watch the gaps. When you're in between breaths, you are not in the world; you are neither body nor mind.

In Buddhist terminology, this method is known as Anapanasati Yoga. Buddha's enlightenment was based on this technique; only this; and, probably by far, more people have gotten enlightened through this single, first technique, than any other.

2. AS BREATH TURNS FROM DOWN TO UP, AND AGAIN AS BREATH CURVES FROM UP TO DOWN - THROUGH BOTH THESE TURNS, REALIZE.

This method is the same, but with a slight difference. The emphasis is now not on the gaps, but on the turnings; the points where the incoming breath becomes the outgoing breath and the outgoing breath turns into the next incoming breath. Realize the turns and you will realize the Self.

3. OR, WHENEVER IN-BREATH AND OUT-BREATH FUSE, AT THIS INSTANT TOUCH THE ENERGY-LESS, ENERGY-FILLED CENTER.

You have a center and a periphery. When the breath comes in, it goes to your center. When it goes back out, it moves from your center. Breathing fully (not shallowly), free of fear, touch and realize this deep center.

4. OR, WHEN BREATH IS ALL OUT (UP) AND STOPPED OF ITSELF, OR ALL IN (DOWN) AND STOPPED - IN SUCH UNIVERSAL PAUSE, ONE'S SMALL SELF VANISHES. THIS IS DIFFICULT ONLY FOR THE IMPURE.

Your (non-existent) small self is only a daily utility. In an emergency, for instance, even for the impure there will be a pause. Suddenly breathing stops. If you can be aware in that moment, you can attain the goal. When breathing stops, mind stops. The whole Zen technique is based on this fourth technique of Shiva.

5. ATTENTION BETWEEN EYEBROWS, LET MIND BE BEFORE THOUGHT. LET FORM FILL WITH BREATH ESSENCE TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD AND THERE SHOWER AS LIGHT.

This was the (Indian) technique to open the third eye given to Pythagoras in an Egyptian mystery school. He is the father of all mysticism in the West. This fifth technique is at the base of all hypnotism. In the third eye, imagination and actualization are one phenomenon.

Close your eyes, then focus both of your eyes just in the middle of the two eyebrows. Focus just in the middle, with closed eyes, as if you are looking with your two eyes. Give total attention to it. This is one of the simplest methods of being attentive, because the pineal gland is magnetic for it. Attention is food for the third eye.

Once your attention is focused at the third eye center, you become immediately the witness of thoughts, rather than being identified with them. Feel the subtle, delicate vibration of breathing. Observe the essence of breathing prana.

Effortlessly, imagine your head is filled with prana. This prana essence is showering from the top of your head as light. And it WILL begin to shower, and under the shower of light you will be refreshed, reborn, completely new.

6. WHEN IN WORLDLY ACTIVITY, KEEP ATTENTION BETWEEN TWO BREATHS, AND SO PRACTICING, IN A FEW DAYS BE BORN ANEW.

Continually, as you go about your days, bring your attention to the gaps between breaths. If this method is practiced, your whole life will become a long drama. You will be an actor playing roles, but constantly centered in the gap, rather than the periphery of life. If you practice this sixth technique, your whole life will be as if it is not happening to you; as if it is happening to someone else.

7. WITH INTANGIBLE BREATH IN CENTER OF FOREHEAD, AS THIS REACHES HEART AT THE MOMENT OF SLEEP, HAVE DIRECTION OVER DREAMS AND OVER DEATH ITSELF.

Practice this technique only when you are falling asleep.

Centered at the third eye, feel the intangible prana in the incoming breath. Feel the empty outgoing breath. Before sleep comes, become aware of the breath and the invisible prana, and feel it coming to the heart. Let sleep come while you are continuously feeling it. If this happens - that you are feeling invisible breath coming into the heart and sleep overtakes you - you will be aware in dreams. You will know that you are dreaming.

First, you will eventually learn to create whatever dreams you want. Once you become master of your dreams you will stop dreaming. When dreaming stops, your sleep has a different quality altogether, and the quality is the same as of death. Death is deep sleep. Once you can know dreamless sleep and can be aware in it, then there will be no fear of death. If you can direct your dreams, you can direct your death also. Once you can direct your dreams you can direct everything, because dream is the very stuff of the world.

8. WITH UTMOST DEVOTION, CENTER ON THE TWO JUNCTIONS OF BREATH AND KNOW THE KNOWER.

If you're not of scientific mind, then add faith, love and trust to your process. Your body is the sacred temple of the divine. While you are taking a breath in, it is not only you who is taking the breath, it is the divine within you. This Divinity deserves utmost devotion.

Frogdot-1899733 9. LIE DOWN AS DEAD. ENRAGED IN WRATH, STAY SO. OR STARE WITHOUT MOVING AN EYELASH. OR SUCK SOMETHING AND BECOME THE SUCKING.

Raman Maharshi attained his enlightenment through this technique, spontaneously. Meher Baba attained by constantly staring at his ceiling, a variation on this method.

Krishnamurti spoke for decades about this method. If there is anger, stay in it. If there is grief, observe it without deviation.

Imagine that you are dead. Feel whatever you feel. You are dead and you cannot do anything, so stay so, without movement. This staying is beautiful. Silence of mind can occur, while You are still here.

10. WHILE BEING CARESSED, SWEET PRINCESS, ENTER THE CARESS AS EVERLASTING LIFE.

Relax and lovingly be in your center. Here, there is no becoming; just being. Do not move from this bliss. This very moment is what eternity is.

ant 11. STOP THE DOORS OF THE SENSES WHEN FEELING THE CREEPING OF AN ANT. THEN.

Whatever you are sensing or feeling - stop. Stop any movement; stop even your breath. When the breath has stopped and all the senses are closed, where is this creeping? Where is the ant? Suddenly you are removed - far away.

12. WHEN ON A BED OR A SEAT, LET YOURSELF BECOME WEIGHTLESS, BEYOND MIND.

When there is no weight you are no more a body, because the weight is of the body - not of you. Your body is not you - it is part of the rest of the universe. Drop even the more subtle weight of the mind. What's left is weightless.

13. OR, IMAGINE THE FIVE-COLORED CIRCLES OF THE PEACOCK TAIL TO BE YOUR FIVE SENSES IN ILLIMITABLE SPACE. NOW LET THEIR BEAUTY MELT WITHIN. SIMILARLY, AT ANY POINT IN SPACE OR ON A WALL - UNTIL THE POINT DISSOLVES. THEN YOUR WISH FOR ANOTHER COMES TRUE.

Man is born with a center, but not with the knowledge of the center. This knowledge has to be gained.

This technique can be good for people who are color sensitive; who see color in their dreams.

Imagine that your five senses are five colors, and those five beautiful alive colors, extend into infinite space. Then move within with those colors. Move within and feel a center where all these five colors are meeting within you. This is just imagination, but it can help. Concentrate on this point until it dissolves. Actually, it is the mind, without movement, that dissolves.

14. PLACE YOUR WHOLE ATTENTION IN THE NERVE, DELICATE AS THE LOTUS THREAD, IN THE CENTER OF YOUR SPINAL COLUMN. IN SUCH BE TRANSFORMED.

Close your eyes and visulize your spinal column from within. See it, and just in the middle of it visualize a nerve, delicate as the lotus thread of life, running in the center of your spinal column. Concentrate on it, and this very concentration will throw you to your center, which will radiate light.

This technique can be tried when you are in a deep sex act. When in a deep embrace, remain inside. Forget the other person; just go inside and visualize your spinal column in which more energy is flowing and the thread is more visible because you are silent.

Those who become adept at this method learn to see auras.

15. CLOSING THE SEVEN OPENINGS OF THE HEAD WITH YOUR HANDS, A SPACE BETWEEN YOUR EYES BECOMES ALL INCLUSIVE.

This is one of the oldest techniques - very much used, and one of the simplest also. Close all the openings of the head - eyes, ears, nose, mouth. When all the openings of the head are closed, your consciousness, which is continuously flowing out, is stopped suddenly: it cannot move out; instead it will stay at the third eye. In this space, the whole existence is included.

16. BLESSED ONE, AS SENSES ARE ABSORBED IN THE HEART, REACH THE CENTER OF THE LOTUS.

This method is for emotional, heart oriented people. First, relate your senses to the heart; secondly, always think that every sense goes deep down into the heart and becomes absorbed in it. You senses will then lead you to the heart, and your heart will become a lotus.

17. UNMINDING MIND, KEEP IN THE MIDDLE - UNTIL.

Buddha developed his whole technique of meditation on this sutra. Buddha says: "Remain always in the middle, between the extremes - in everything."

The mind likes extremes. Keep in the middle until the mind dies. Keep in the middle until there is no mind. This sutra is for your whole life. A quiet center will grow within you.

18. LOOK LOVINGLY AT SOME OBJECT. DO NOT GO TO ANOTHER OBJECT. HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OBJECT - THE BLESSING.

Every thought comes from the outside; there is no possibility of creating a thought within. Whenever you are thinking, you are not in. To be thinking, even about 'inner' things, is to be out. Especially with this sutra, do not be concerned with results; allow the mind to concern only with the technique. Look lovingly.

Looking lustfully, you turn a person into an object. Looking lovingly, you turn even objects into persons. Forget yourself. All is alive with the same consiousness.

CaressingTheDark-2142279 19. WITHOUT SUPPORT FOR FEET OR HANDS, SIT ONLY ON THE BUTTOCKS. SUDDENLY, THE CENTERING.

Sensitize and balance on your ass. Feel the centering.

20. IN A MOVING VEHICLE, BY RHYTHMICALLY SWAYING, EXPERIENCE. OR IN A STILL VEHICLE, BY LETTING YOURSELF SWING IN SLOWING INVISIBLE CIRCLES.

Same thing; just in a moving bullock cart or other vehicle. Do not resist, but relax into the right groove of diminishing circles, until your body is not visibly moving, but only inside you still feel a subtle movement.

Gurdjieff created many dances from this basic technique. There is no need for a vehicle. Just whirl like a child. From the center, you will experience the gap between you and the body and the rest of the so-called objective universe.

21. PIERCE SOME PART OF YOUR NECTAR-FILLED FORM WITH A PIN, AND GENTLY ENTER THE PIERCING AND ATTAIN TO THE INNER PURITY.

Your body is not just a body, it is filled with you, and that you is the nectar.

Concentrate on some pain. The one who is concentrating is you. The concentration is being done on the body - that is the object. When you concentrate, the gap is broadened and the identification is broken. You are observing the pain, not feeling the pain; hence, the gap. Enter it and feel the bliss.

Thomas-Sierak-Silhouettes 22. LET ATTENTION BE AT A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE SEEING SOME PAST HAPPENING, AND EVEN YOUR FORM, HAVING LOST ITS PRESENT CHARACTERISTICS, IS TRANSFORMED.

One of the great tantrics of this age, George Gurdjieff said that identification is the only sin. Identification is misery; non-identification is bliss.

You were a child once; now you are not. Your childhood is now just a dream. Observe the past and disidentify yourself from it; become a witness. Then observe the future, whatsoever you imagine about the future, and be a witness to that also. Then you can observe your present very easily, because then you know that whatsoever is present just now was future yesterday, and tomorrow it will become the past. But your witness is never past, never future. Your witnessing consciousness is eternal; it is not part of time. Look without getting involved.

23. FEEL AN OBJECT BEFORE YOU. FEEL THE ABSENCE OF ALL OTHER OBJECTS BUT THIS ONE. THEN, LEAVING ASIDE THE OBJECT-FEELING AND THE ABSENCE-FEELING, REALIZE.

First, feel it. See whatever it is and feel it, exclusive of anything and everything else. This technique is a love technique.

Choose some object you naturally love, and then forget the whole world. Relish the presence, taste the presence, feel it, go deep into it and let it go deep into you.

Then, leave it. If you were with it totally, you can drop it totally. Realize the vacuum, the nothingness. This is your nature; this is pure being; the Supreme.

24. WHEN A MOOD AGAINST SOMEONE OR FOR SOMEONE ARISES, DO NOT PLACE IT ON THE PERSON IN QUESTION, BUT REMAIN CENTERED.

Only you are the source of your moods. When you feel hate, do not go to the object. Go to the point from where the hate is coming. Go not to the person to whom it is going, but to the center from where it is coming. Move to the center, go within. Use your hate or love or anger or anything as a journey toward your inner center, to the source.

25. JUST AS YOU HAVE THE IMPULSE TO DO SOMETHING, STOP.

Life has two balances: one is of being and the other of doing. Doing is on the circumference; being is the center, preceding all activity, prior to mind.

Activity can be practiced; inactivity cannot be practiced - if you practice it, it becomes just another activity. You can be truly inactive only suddenly. Stop!

Any real impulse can be utilized for this technique. The pure energy of anger can be well used. Do not think about stopping, just stop - and wait. When you have stopped, no breathing, no movement, no thought - wait and see what happens.

26. WHEN SOME DESIRE COMES, CONSIDER IT. THEN, SUDDENLY, QUIT IT.

A different dimension of the previous technique: 'Consider it' means do not think for or against it, just consider the desire, what it is. The desire is there: look at it directly, immediately. Do not bring in your thoughts or ideas, because no thought is yours and no idea is yours. Just be attentive and, suddenly, quit it!

This technique can be empowering if you want to quit smoking. Without judgment, consider your smoking for seven days. After that, whenever you feel the urge to smoke, simply quit the urge. If you had considered well, it is possible to have a life changing experience along with the quitting.

27. ROAM ABOUT UNTIL EXHAUSTED AND THEN, DROPPING TO THE GROUND, IN THIS DROPPING BE WHOLE.

Do something very active and strenuous. Jump, dance, and run again until you are exhausted. Continue until you feel - not think, until you feel - that the whole body is tired. Then drop! Remember, don't plan it - be so exhausted that dropping happens of itself, in totality. This technique can help you to very easily fall into the cosmic ocean of energy.

28. SUPPOSE YOU ARE GRADUALLY BEING DEPRIVED OF STRENGTH OR OF KNOWLEDGE. AT THE INSTANT OF DEPRIVATION, TRANSCEND.

You can do it in an actual situation or you can imagine a situation. For example: lie down, relax, and feel as if your body is going to die. Close your eyes; start feeling that you are dying. Soon you will feel that your body is becoming heavy. Look at the body. Forget that you are dying and now be the observer. The body is lying dead and you are looking at it. There will be a transcendence. With death, planning ceases, with death worrying ceases, because every worry is life-oriented. You will be out of your mind, because a dead body needs no mind.

This feeling that you are in the body is because of the MIND! If the mind is not there, if it is absent, you will not say you are in the body or out of the body. You will simply be there, no in or out.

29. DEVOTION FREES.

This technique is for 'feeling' types of people and there is no 'how' to it. Pure devotion is freedom. When love goes deep, there is silence. Losing one's self to the silence is devotion.

Ramakrishna was an ultimate devotee. No one was more free than him.

In love, the other is important. In devotion, the "I" disappears - and the 'thou' too. Only Divinity is left. When 'you' are nowhere, the Beloved is everywhere.

30. EYES CLOSED, SEE YOUR INNER BEING IN DETAIL. THUS, SEE YOUR TRUE NATURE.

Eyes are the least bodily part in the human body. If matter can become non-matter, then such is the case with eyes. Eyes are material, but simultaneously they are also non-material. Eyes are a meeting point of you and your body. A single jump from the eyes can lead you to the source. You are NEAREST from there.

That is why, if you know how to look into someone's eyes, you can look into their depths. He or she is there. So if you are hiding a secret, your eyes will reveal it. And to control the eyes is very difficult. Your eyes are the doors to your secrets.

If you know how to unlock them, you will become vulnerable, open. And if you want to enter into your own secret life, your inner life, then again you will have to use the same lock and unlocking system.

If thinking is there, the eyes will move. If there is no thinking, the eyes will not move. Movement is the eye's nature when mind is involved. You can stop your eyes, though, by staring at a dot on the wall. If you do not allow them movement from A to B, a very strange phenomenon happens - they will move from outwards to inwards.

Close your eyes and stop their movements. Do not do anything; just remain there. Suddenly, someday, you will become aware that you are looking inside yourself.

Close your eyes and look at your inner being in detail. You will be separated from the body because the looker is never the looked at. The observer is different from the object.

Once freed from the body, freed from the identity, you are free to move. Now you can move into your mind - deep down. If you enter this cave of the mind, you will see that you are separate from the mind also.

A point comes beyond the mind where simply you are and now you cannot divide your single existence into two: object and subject. When you have come to that witness which cannot be penetrated, that in which you cannot move, which cannot be observed, only then have you come to the entrance to the real self, your true nature.

Look again and again and again into your real nature. It is beyond body and mind; it is beyond name and form; it is beyond space and time even, as they are only aspects of mind. Aren't you obviously prior to it all; empty, yet full; impersonal, yet aware; infinite and eternal?

31. LOOK UPON A BOWL WITHOUT SEEING THE SIDES OR THE MATERIAL. IN A FEW MOMENTS BECOME AWARE.

Look at anything. Forget the substance and just look at the form as a whole, without the eyes moving from one part to another.

For instance, stare at a single star in the black, nighttime sky. A moment will come when that star will disappear. And when that star disappears, you will appear to yourself.

32. SEE AS IF FOR THE FIRST TIME A BEAUTEOUS PERSON OR AN ORDINARY OBJECT.

Don't look with old eyes, filled with memory and habit. Everything is not the same as it may have been. People may say nothing is new under the sky. Really, nothing is old under the sky. Look at everything you pass as if for the first time. Make it a continuous attitude.

Heraclitus said that you cannot step into the same river twice. If you are freed from the past and you have a look which can see the present, you will enter the existence. And this entry will be double: you will enter into everything, into its spirit, and you will enter into yourself also because the present is the door.

This technique is just to make your eyes fresh - so fresh, alive, radiantly vital, that they can move within and you can have a look at your inner self. SEE AS IF FOR THE FIRST TIME. Innocent eyes can see. Innocent eyes can enter into the inner world.

gazing-at-the-sky 33. SIMPLY BY LOOKING INTO THE BLUE SKY BEYOND CLOUDS - THE SERENITY.

First, a useful hint: Do not be in denial about death. Make death a constant contemplation in your life.

Without thinking; just look into the infinite, blue sky. Look at the pure emptiness of it. Your eyes are like a mirror. Whatsoever is before them is reflected. Feel the same sky within, the same dimension within. Become empty. Empty and full are the same thing. Even when empty, you still ARE.

34. LISTEN WHILE THE ULTIMATE MYSTICAL TEACHING IS IMPARTED. EYES STILL, WITHOUT BLINKING, AT ONCE BECOME ABSOLUTELY FREE.

This is a secret method which can be imparted only by a master, visible or not. It helps to fully understand that freedom from the mind is the only freedom there is.

35. AT THE EDGE OF A DEEP WELL LOOK STEADILY INTO ITS DEPTHS UNTIL - THE WONDROUSNESS.

Go on looking, day after day, month after month. The deep well will be reflected in you.

36. LOOK UPON SOME OBJECT, THEN SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR SIGHT FROM IT, THEN SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR THOUGHT FROM IT. THEN.

Use the same object, day after day. Look at it, but do not think. Then, close your eyes, and just as you have removed your eyesight from the object, remove yourself from the image.

SIMON-SIWAK-2260198 37. DEVI, IMAGINE THE SANSKRIT LETTERS IN THESE HONEY-FILLED FOCI OF AWARENESS, FIRST AS LETTERS, THEN MORE SUBTLY AS SOUNDS, THEN AS MOST SUBTLE FEELING. THEN, LEAVING THEM ASIDE, BE FREE.

We have a will to live and we also have a will to die, because mind is the door to hell. Mind is the world. Look at the meaninglessness of the world. Look at the meaninglessness of words. Listen to their sounds and what feelings they invoke. Go into and beyond the feelings.

38. BATHE IN THE CENTER OF SOUND, AS IN THE CONTINUOUS SOUND OF A WATERFALL. OR, BY PUTTING THE FINGERS IN THE EARS, HEAR THE SOUND OF SOUNDS.

Sounds are always present. So are you, alone and silent.

39. INTONE A SOUND, AS AUM, SLOWLY. AS SOUND ENTERS SOUNDFULNESS, SO DO YOU.

If mind can be used as a jumping board to no-mind - and yoga and tantra believe that it can - then something which belongs to mind has to be trained. Sound is one of the basic things. You can use sound to go into soundlessness.

The intoning of a sound is a very subtle science.

First, intone AUM loudly, outwardly. By and by, feel attunement with the sound. Be filled with it. Tune yourself with it.

Then, close your lips and intone it inwardly, loudly, so that the sound spreads throughout your body. You will feel cleansed and vitalized by it. As it penetrates you more, go on becoming more and more slow, because the slower and subtler the sound, the deeper it can go. It is just like homeopathy.

Only delicate, refined sounds can enter your heart, the central core of your being, and the more subtle a sound is, the more intense an awareness you will need to feel it inside. Listen to it, inside, still and awake.

40. IN THE BEGINNING AND GRADUAL REFINEMENT OF THE SOUND OF ANY LETTER, AWAKE.

41. WHILE LISTENING TO STRINGED INSTRUMENTS, HEAR THEIR COMPOSITE CENTRAL SOUND; THUS OMNIPRESENCE.

42. INTONE A SOUND AUDIBLY, THEN LESS AND LESS AUDIBLY AS FEELING DEEPENS INTO THIS SILENT HARMONY.

43. WITH MOUTH SLIGHTLY OPEN, KEEP MIND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TONGUE. OR, AS BREATH COMES SILENTLY IN, FEEL THE SOUND "HH".

44. CENTER ON THE SOUND "AUM" WITHOUT ANY "A" OR "M".

45. SILENTLY INTONE A WORD ENDING IN "AH." THEN IN THE "HH," EFFORTLESSLY, THE SPONTANEITY.

46. STOPPING EARS BY PRESSING AND THE RECTUM BY CONTRACTING, ENTER THE SOUND.

If you stop your ears and pull your rectum up, contract your rectum, everything will stop for you. Drop your psychological armor and listen, feel and be attentive.

47. ENTER THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME AND, THROUGH THIS SOUND, ALL SOUNDS.

Your name has gone very deep within you, but there is a very beautiful phenomenon about your name: you never call it, others call it. Your own name can be used as a mantra very easily, and it is very helpful because your name has gone very deep into your unconscious. Your name becomes just a door for all names. Enter the sound.

48. AT THE START OF SEXUAL UNION KEEP ATTENTIVE ON THE FIRE IN THE BEGINNING, AND SO CONTINUING, AVOID THE EMBERS IN THE END.

Sex can be a very deep fulfillment, and sex can throw you back to your wholeness, to your natural, real being, because sex is a total act. Become the body, become the animal, because the animal is whole. Sex is the deepest, the biological center within you. You are born out of it. Your every cell is a sex cell; your whole body is a sex-energy phenomenon.

Don't just want release and don't be in a hurry. Don't hanker for the end - remain with the beginning. Remain with this overflowing energy. Create a circle.

Don't take the sex act as a way of going anywhere. Don't take it as a means: it is the end in itself. Remain with the present going nowhere, and melt into one another. Both partners melting with each other circularly give vital energy to each other.

49. WHEN IN SUCH EMBRACE YOUR SENSES ARE SHAKEN AS LEAVES, ENTER THIS SHAKING.

When the energy of sex spreads all over your body, every cell becomes alive because every cell is a sex cell. You cannot control it. You may start shaking. Enter the shaking and don't be aloof. Allow the shaking and every cell of both of your bodies to dance. Be the shaking - it is not just your body that is shaking. It is you - your whole being, in circle with the other. Feel the non-duality.

111114i72 50. EVEN REMEMBERING UNION, WITHOUT THE EMBRACE, TRANSFORMATION.

If you know the feeling, you can enter into the act without the partner.

51. ON JOYOUSLY SEEING A LONG ABSENT FRIEND, PERMEATE THIS JOY.

Enter this joy and become one with it - any joy, any happiness. When sudden joy grips you, attend to the joy, not the cause for the joy. The joy is always within you. Be centered in your own feeling of rising energy. The moment you look at it, it will spread. Don't just be an observer of it; merge into it.

Even with negative emotions, do this. When you are angry, do not be centered on the person who has aroused it. If the emotion is negative, you will be freed of it by being aware that it is within you. If the emotion is positive, you will become the emotion itself. If it is joy, you will become joy. If it is anger, the anger will dissolve.

If it is a poisonous emotion, you are relieved of it through awareness. If it is good, blissful, ecstatic, you become one with it. Awareness deepens it.

52. WHEN EATING OR DRINKING, BECOME THE TASTE OF FOOD OR DRINK, AND BE FILLED.

Go slow, and be aware of the taste as much as you can. When you feel sweetness, become that sweetness.

Tantra says be alive, more alive, because life is God. There is no other God than life. Be more alive, and you will be more divine. Be totally alive, and there is no death for you.

53. OH LOTUS-EYED ONE, SWEET OF TOUCH, WHEN SINGING, SEEING, TASTING, BE AWARE YOU ARE AND DISCOVER THE EVER-LIVING.

Tantra is a training in how to become real and undivided, aware of your whole being. Be aware that you are - the current, the energy, the life, the ever-living.

This technique is one of the most helpful, and it has been used for millennia by many teachers, masters. Buddha used it, Mahavira used it, Jesus used it, and in more modern times Gurdjieff used it. The whole Gurdjieffian system is based on this one sutra of self-remembering. Remember yourself, whatsoever you are doing. You are.

Raman Maharshi made it a meditation to ask, to inquire, "Who am I?" - don't believe in any answers that the mind can supply. Nisargadatta's entire inquiry, also, was into the existential question "Who Am I"?

54. WHEREVER SATISFACTION IS FOUND, IN WHATEVER ACT, ACTUALIZE THIS.

You feel thirsty, so you drink water. A subtle satisfaction is attained. Forget the water, forget the thirst. Remain with the subtle satisfaction that you are feeling. Be filled with it; simply feel satisfied. Everything is a window. Everything is beautified by a positive mind. This is a very delicate process, but very sweet also, and the more you proceed in it, the sweeter it becomes.

55. AT THE POINT OF SLEEP, WHEN THE SLEEP HAS NOT YET COME AND THE EXTERNAL WAKEFULNESS VANISHES, AT THIS POINT BEING IS REVEALED.

There is a point when you are not asleep and not awake, just in the middle. There you are in a neutral gear. There is a gap. Through that gap you can have a glimpse of your being. Keep at this every night.

As the sleep comes, just wait. The moment you are waiting for will be very subtle and potentially very atomic.

A moment will come when you are neither asleep nor awake, but aware of your authentic existence.

56. ILLUSIONS DECEIVE, COLORS CIRCUMSCRIBE, EVEN DIVISIBLES ARE INDIVISIBLE.

This is a rare technique, one not much used, but one of the greatest teachers in India, Shankara, used it and based his whole teaching on this technique. Shankara says everything is illusory. Nothing is certain other than you.

57. IN MOODS OF EXTREME DESIRE, BE UNDISTURBED.

The original mind is like a mirror: it is pure, and it remains pure, but dust can gather upon it and cover it up. Our mind is the original mind plus dust, the buddha-mind plus dust, the divine mind plus dust. Once you know how to uncover it, how to reclaim it from the dust, you have known all that is worth knowing and you have attained all that is worth attaining.

Desire is a "dis-ease". You are in desire, desire grips you, you are temporarily mad, possessed, you are no more in your senses. Suddenly remember to be undisturbed - as if you are undressing. Inside, become naked, naked from the desire, undressed. Desire will be there, but now you have a point within you which is not disturbed. You will know that desire is there on the periphery. Like fever, it is there. In a cyclone, there is a center which is undisturbed.

58. THIS SO-CALLED UNIVERSE APPEARS AS A JUGGLING, A PICTURE SHOW. TO BE HAPPY, LOOK UPON IT SO.

This whole world is just like a drama, so don't be too serious about it. Look at the expanse: look backwards, look forwards, look to all dimensions at what you are, what your life is. It looks like a long dream, and everything that you take so seriously this moment becomes useless the next moment.

Remember your first love, how serious it was. Life depended on it. Now you don't remember it at all, it is forgotten. If you are unhappy, you have taken it too seriously. Right attitude is what makes you happy.

59. OH BELOVED, PUT ATTENTION NEITHER ON PLEASURE NOR ON PAIN, BUT BETWEEN THESE.

Everything is polar, and mind moves from one polarity to another. Buddha says remain in the middle always; no matter what the polarity,

Don't try to escape the pain; remain with it as a witness, in between. If unhappiness comes, allow it. If happiness comes, allow it. Remain a watcher on the hill.

60. OBJECTS AND DESIRES EXIST IN ME AS IN OTHERS. SO ACCEPTING, LET THEM BE TRANSFORMED.

When you are angry, you always justify your anger, but when someone else gets angry you always criticize. If you think you are exceptional, know well this is how every ordinary mind thinks. We have double standards - one standard for one oneself and another standard for everyone else. This double-standard mind is going to be in deep misery always. This mind is not just, and unless your mind is just you cannot glimpse the truth.

Don't condemn. Every man is you. Acceptance of this becomes transformation and compassion. Bring everything up to the surface. Accept your humanity and your animality. Through acceptance, awareness is possible.

m7q2qfMIY 61. AS WAVES COME WITH WATER AND FLAMES WITH FIRE, SO THE UNIVERSAL WAVES WITH US.

Sri Aurobindo says somewhere that the whole life is yoga - and it is so. Any act can become meditative, and once you know how an act becomes meditative you can transform all your acts into meditation. Then the whole life becomes yoga.

The wave appears; it is there in a sense, but still it is not there in a deeper sense. In a deeper sense only the ocean is. We are just waves in a cosmic ocean. Only the formless is eternal. Just be real and be in bliss.

62. WHEREVER YOUR MIND IS WANDERING, INTERNALLY OR EXTERNALLY, AT THIS VERY PLACE, THIS.

This mind is the door - this very mind. Wherever it is wandering, whatsoever it is thinking, contemplating, dreaming; this very mind, this very moment, is the door.

The ordinary mind is not so ordinary as we think. The ordinary mind is not unrelated to the universal mind: it is part of it. Its roots go down to the very center of existence; otherwise you cannot be.

Suddenly, just change focus from the clouds to the sky.

63. WHEN VIVIDLY AWARE THROUGH SOME PARTICULAR SENSE, KEEP IN THE AWARENESS.

Eyes cannot see; you see through your eyes. The seer is hidden behind, the eyes are just the opening, just the windows.

Once you have the art of standing always alert behind your senses, the senses cannot deceive you. In a world which is just an appearance, they have deceived you to feel it as real. If you can look through the senses and remain alert, the world will by and by appear to you as illusory, dream-like, and you will be able to penetrate to the substance, the BRAHMAN.

64. AT THE START OF SNEEZING, DURING FRIGHT, IN ANXIETY, ABOVE A CHASM, FLYING IN BATTLE, IN EXTREME CURIOSITY, AT THE BEGINNING OF HUNGER, AT THE END OF HUNGER, BE UNINTERRUPTEDLY AWARE.

That which is to be achieved you are already. You have only to discover, uncover, unfold that which is already the case; hence, both the difficulty of spiritual endeavor and the simplicity. SANSARA and NIRVANA, the world and the liberated state of consciousness, are not two things - just two attitudes, just two choices.

It is easy. Once absolute bliss is achieved, you will laugh about it. Once it is known, you will not be able to understand why you were missing it, how you could miss it. It was there always just waiting to be looked at, and it was yours.

All of these methods are told by someone who has achieved - remember this. They will look too simple and the ego does not like simple things. Nevertheless, right now, here, this very moment, you can achieve all that is possible to human beings.

Death is sudden; SAMADHI is also sudden. Spiritual explosion is also sudden. It is like death. It is more like death than it is like life; it is sudden. It can happen at any moment. If you are ready, these techniques can be of help. They will not bring it gradually; really, they will gradually bring you to be ready for the sudden happening. These techniques are not techniques for SAMADHI; they are techniques to prepare you for whenever SAMADHI happens.

For instance, the energy that was going to be released through a sneeze, when you are alert, where does it move? It moves to your alertness. Suddenly there is a flash, a lightning. You become more alert. In that flash, in that lightning, even enlightenment is possible. Suddenly, there is consciousness without thought; silence and stillness while fully awake.

65. THE PURITY OF OTHER TEACHINGS IS AN IMPURITY TO US. IN REALITY, KNOW NOTHING AS PURE OR IMPURE.

Tantra is not concerned with morality or immorality; to tantra these distinctions are absolutely irrelevant. Tantra says, existence is non-dual, it is one, and all distinctions are man-created. Tantra says that the fact is real and the interpretation is unreal. Purity and impurity are our attitudes imposed on reality.

Look at the world, but don't say what it is. Don't label, remain silent, non-condemnatory, nonjustifying. If you can remain silent about the world, by and by this silence will penetrate within.

66. BE THE UNSAME SAME TO FRIEND AS TO STRANGER, IN HONOR AND DISHONOR.

Existence is one. If you approach it through analysis, it appears material, dead. If you approach it through participation, it appears as life, as divine, as consciousness. The periphery is all change, but the center is absolutely changeless. Take a look.

First look at your friend as a stranger; only then you can look at the stranger as at the friend. Look at your wife: do you really know her? Does she know you? Even you don't know you.

67. HERE IS THE SPHERE OF CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE. THROUGH CHANGE CONSUME CHANGE.

Allow all the change; float and relax in all the change. When you are relaxed, then the changing background gives you contrast, and through it you can feel the non-changing.

68. AS A HEN MOTHERS HER CHICKS, MOTHER PARTICULAR KNOWINGS, PARTICULAR DOINGS, IN REALITY.

When you live in your dreams, dreams become barriers. Reality is not a dream. It is there, you are surrounded by it everywhere. Inside and outside, it is there - you cannot miss it - but you are dreaming. You can go on finding ways and means how to come to reality, but you will be trying that too through your dreaming mind. Dreaming must cease, because dreaming cannot be used to know reality.

Look directly, hear directly and touch directly. Don't bring your past mind in. Dreams are created by your past mind. Don't allow the past to come in and then don't allow the future either.

Don't allow words to exist between you and reality. Look directly at things as they are. Don't project, don't interpret, don't force your mind upon things. Allow the reality to assert itself, whatsoever it is. Allow a gap. Between two illusions, allow a gap. Allow an interval so the reality can be seen.

Dreaming is a substitute for reality. If you cannot get whatsoever you desire in reality, then you start dreaming. Study your desiring; be aware and observe it. The more you observe it, the more it will disappear.

Don't mother dreams. No painted smiles. Live in the present and don't cherish hopes, whatsoever their nature. If life is hopeless, be hopeless. Accept it, and don't cling to any future event.

This sutra says throw the scriptures away. Mother only your real knowings. Then, you will be real.

69. SINCE, IN TRUTH, BONDAGE AND FREEDOM ARE RELATIVE, THESE WORDS ARE ONLY FOR THOSE TERRIFIED WITH THE UNIVERSE. THIS UNIVERSE IS A REFLECTION OF MINDS. AS YOU SEE MANY SUNS IN WATER FROM ONE SUN, SO SEE BONDAGE AND LIBERATION.

Zen is based on this very deep technique. The world and NIRVANA are not two things, they are one; heaven and hell are not two things, they are one; bondage and liberation are not two things, they are one. All opposites are related; they are degrees of the same phenomenon. Tantra says that you have to be liberated not only from bondage; you have to be liberated from MOKSHA also.

If you are ill then you long for health. That longing for health is part of your illness. If you are really healthy, you will not long for health.

You cannot desire liberation. Desire is bondage. When desire ceases, liberation is.

70. CONSIDER YOUR ESSENCE AS LIGHT RAYS FROM CENTER TO CENTER UP THE VERTEBRAE, AND SO RISES "LIVINGNESS" IN YOU.

Many yoga methods are based on this. The vertebrae, the spine, is the base of both your body and mind. Your mind, your head, is the end part of your spine. If your spine is alive, you will have a very brilliant mind. The whole yoga tries in many ways to make your spine alive, brilliant, filled with light, young and fresh.

The spine has two ends: the beginning is the sex center and the end is SAHASRARA, the seventh center at the top of the head. From the beginning center in your spine you are in contact with nature; from the last center, SAHASRAR, in the head, you are in contact with the divine.

Imagine yourself as life. In the beginning it is imagination, but it is reality also because everything consists of light. YOU are light! Imagine first that you are just light rays; then move your imagination to the sex center. Concentrate your attention there and feel that light rays are rising upwards from the sex center, as if the sex center has become a source of light and light rays are moving in an upsurge. Rise it up one chakra at a time. Feel the warm life. Create sensitivity and feeling by practice.

Whenever you do this experiment, don't leave it in the middle. You have to complete it. Take care that no one disturbs you. If you leave this energy somewhere in the middle, it can be harmful. It has to be released. So bring it to the head and feel as if your head has become a showering opening.

Just conceive of the lotus with a thousand petals, opened, and from every petal this light energy is moving into the cosmos. Again, this is a love act - not with nature as at the bottom of the spine, but with the ultimate. Again, it is an orgasm.

When the energy comes to the head, you will feel dizzy. Sometimes you may even feel nausea because for the first time energy has come to the head and your head is not acquainted with it. It has to become tuned. So don't become afraid. Sometimes you may immediately become unconscious, but don't be afraid. This happens. If so much energy moves suddenly and explodes in the head, you may become unconscious. But that unconsciousness cannot remain for more than forty-eight minutes. Within this time, the energy automatically falls back or is released. If you do become unconscious, it is okay. After that unconsciousness you will feel so fresh that it is as if you have been in sleep for the first time, in the deepest sleep. Yoga calls it by a special name - YOGA TANDRA: yogic sleep. It is very deep; you move to your deepest center.

HEAVENMAN-2248230 71. OR IN THE SPACES BETWEEN, FEEL THIS AS LIGHTNING.

This is a very similar method with a slight difference: Between one center and another, as rays are coming, you can feel it like lightning - just a jump of light. There really is no gradual step-by-step growth. Light is a jump.

With lightning you may feel such hotness that it may seem unbearable. If you feel that, don't try it. Do the prior method. If you are at ease, then it is good.

72. FEEL THE COSMOS AS A TRANSLUCENT EVER-LIVING PRESENCE.

This technique is based on inner sensitivity. First grow in sensitivity. Just close your doors, make the room dark and light a small candle. Sit near the candle with a very loving attitude - rather, with a prayerful attitude. With a loving attitude, with the whole world closed out, with total concentration, with a feeling heart, just go on looking at the candle and the flame. Even if tears start flowing, go on looking at it. Those tears will help your eyes to be more fresh.

Feel the presence of the ever-living existence. If you feel the whole world as filled with life, light, then you are changing your body chemistry. If this method is done for three months, you will be living in a different world.

73. IN SUMMER WHEN YOU SEE THE ENTIRE SKY ENDLESSLY CLEAR ENTER SUCH CLARITY.

This technique - to look into the clarity of the sky and to become one with it - is one of the most practised techniques. Many traditions have used this.

Mind is crowded confusion. There is no such thing as a clear mind. No-mind, on the other hand, is clear consciousness. Your consciousness is just like the sky and your mind is just like the clouds. The sky remains untouched by the clouds. Without thought, unfocus on the clouds and focus on the sky.

Without thought, without blinking, stare into the clear blue sky. Just be passive and remain under the sky - vulnerable, open, feminine, with no aggression on your part - and then the sky will penetrate you. After 40 minutes, and only when you really feel that the sky has entered you, then you can close your eyes and remain in the sky within.

74. SHAKTI, SEE ALL SPACE AS IF ALREADY ABSORBED IN YOUR OWN HEAD IN THE BRILLIANCE.

Close your eyes for this technique. When you do it, close your eyes and feel as if the whole space is absorbed in your own head. is one of the advanced techniques, so it will be good to proceed towards it in steps.

First, for three days: while going to sleep, when just ready to sleep, lie down on your bed, close your eyes and feel where your feet are. Then, imagine that you have become six inches longer.

Then the second step, for three more days: feel also your head, where it is, just inside, and then feel that your head has also become six inches longer. When you can feel this, everything will be easy. Then you make it more. You feel that you have become twelve feet all; or, that you have filled the whole room.

After these six days are up, then you can close your eyes and feel that the whole sky, the whole space, is absorbed by your head. The moment you can feel this, the mind disappears, because the mind needs a very narrow, limited space. In such vastness mind is impossible.

Suddenly, one day, the mind explodes and the space is there. Within a three month period you can feel this. Your whole life will be different. But grow towards it in steps, because sometimes through this technique people become crazy.

For this technique it is good to be with someone: to be with a teacher, or to be with a friend. Don't do it alone. Someone must be there to take care of you, to watch you. This is a school method. Where many people are working in a school, it is very easy, less harmful, less dangerous -- because sometimes when the sky explodes within, for many days you may not become aware of your body.

75. WAKING, SLEEPING, DREAMING, KNOW YOU AS LIGHT.

Waking, sleeping, dreaming are all not the divisions of your consciousness; these are the divisions of your mind - these are the clouds - a waking cloud, a sleeping cloud, a dreaming cloud. Consciousness, the sky in which they move, (turiya), is the fourth.

While waking - moving, eating, working - remember yourself as light.

The second step is to take it into dreaming. Perhaps after three months or so, while falling asleep, go on thinking of the flame, go on seeing it, feeling that you are the light. By and by, in the dreams also you will move with the same feeling. And once this feeling enters the dreams, dreams will start disappearing. There will be less and less dreams and more and more deep sleep.

Only when dreams disappear can you carry this feeling into sleep. Now you are at the door and soon the sleep will happen only to your body, not to you

76. IN RAIN DURING A BLACK NIGHT ENTER THAT BLACKNESS AS THE FORM OF FORMS.

The Essenes are the only group all over the world who thinks of God as absolute darkness. Darkness is eternal. Light comes and goes and darkness remains.

Do one thing as a preliminary step: sit in darkness, put off the lights, feel and befriend and remain with darkness and be unafraid. With eyes open, stare into the blackness.

Darkness is the mother, the womb, so lie down and feel that you are lying in the womb of your mother. Carry a patch of this darkness with you throughout the day.

77. WHEN A MOONLESS RAINY NIGHT IS NOT PRESENT, CLOSE EYES AND FIND BLACKNESS BEFORE YOU. OPENING EYES, SEE BLACKNESS. SO FAULTS DISAPPEAR FOREVER.

First close your eyes, see blackness. Then open the eyes, and the blackness that you have seen within, see it without. If it disappears without, that means that your blackness that you have seen within was false. This is a little bit more difficult. In the first you carry the real darkness within. In the second you carry the false out - go on carrying it. The day you can carry the inner darkness out, you have come upon the inner real darkness. When you can bring the inner darkness outside, faults disappear forever, because if the inner darkness is felt, you have become so so silent, so unexcitable, that faults cannot remain with you.

78. WHEREVER YOUR ATTENTION ALIGHTS, AT THIS VERY POINT, EXPERIENCE.

Develop with practice a sort of attentive attitude, only then will this technique become possible, so then wherever your attention alights you can experience yourself. Look at a flower, or anything, with no thought; simply look.

Eventually, you will experience the experiencer; you will fall back to yourself. From everywhere you will be rebounded; from everywhere you will be reflected. The whole existence will become a mirror; you will be reflected everywhere.

79. FOCUS ON FIRE RISING THROUGH YOUR FORM FROM THE TOES UP UNTIL THE BODY BURNS TO ASHES BUT NOT YOU.

Right now, you can observe the fact that if you are silent, totally alert, you are there, but with no feeling of `I'. The presence is there, the consciousness is there, but there is no one who can say `I am'. Ego is identification with mind and the mind is never here, it is never now. When you are silent, the ego is not.

The mind cam be used as an instrument - just don't identify with it. If you can be aware of the reality here and now, you will remain always transcendental to the mind.

Just lie down. First conceive of yourself as dead; the body is just like a corpse. Lie down, and then bring your attention to the toes. With closed eyes move inwards. Bring your attention to the toes and feel that the fire is rising from there upwards, everything is being burned. As the fire rises, your body is disappearing. Start from the toes and move upwards. Just go on seeing that the body has become ashes and only the witness, You, remain.

80. MEDITATE ON THE MAKE-BELIEVE WORLD AS BURNING TO ASHES AND BECOME BEING ABOVE HUMANS.

If you can come to imagine that your body is burning, it is not difficult to imagine that the whole world is burning - because your body is the world, and through your body you are related to the world. Still, you remain.

81. AS SUBJECTIVELY, LETTERS FLOW INTO WORDS AND WORDS INTO SENTENCES, AND AS, OBJECTIVELY, CIRCLES FLOW INTO WORLDS AND WORLDS INTO PRINCIPLES, FIND AT LAST THESE CONVERGING IN OUR BEING.

Those who want to enter deeper realms of life must be ready to be insecure, must be ready to be in danger, must be ready to move into the unknown, and must not try in any way to fix the future. Insecurity is alive and beautiful. This technique is possible if you are vulnerable, open, not afraid, because this technique is allowing the whole universe to enter in you.

In that openness where the whole existence is converging in you, you cannot exist as an 'I'. You will exist as an open space, but not as a crystallized 'I'. The whole art of religion is how not to be, how to dissolve, how to surrender, how to become an open space.

82. FEEL: MY THOUGHT, I-NESS, INTERNAL ORGANS - ME.

Only YOU think about your ego, no one else. Only you think that your ego is enthroned; for everyone else it is not so. No one agrees with your ego except you; everyone else is against it. But you go on living in a dream, in a delusion. You create your own image. You feel that image, you protect that image, and you think the whole world exists for it. This is a delirium, a madness.

Reality cannot support anything which is not, and your ego is the most impossible thing, the greatest falsity. It is not there; it is your creation, your imaginative creation. The ego is the only barrier to reality.

Close your eyes and feel a thought. A continuous flow of thoughts are there, a continuum, a flux; a river of thoughts is flowing. Feel these thoughts, feel their presence. And the more you feel, the more will be revealed to you - layers upon layers.

The more you feel, the less will it be possible for you to say that they are yours. They are all borrowed, they are all from the outside.

Only the inner silence is yours. No one has given it to you. You were born with it, and you will die with it.

before_dissoving 83. BEFORE DESIRE AND BEFORE KNOWING, HOW CAN I SAY I AM? CONSIDER. DISSOLVE IN THE BEAUTY.

Buddha used to say that when a thought arises, note down that a thought is arising. When a desire arises, take note of it. it disappears, again note that now that desire has disappeared, and you will feel a distance from the desire, from the thought.

When you can consider that a desire has arisen and a desire has gone and you have remained in the gap and the desire has not disturbed you - consider this movement of desire and movement of thought but no movement in you. This interval is beautiful. Dissolve in that interval. Fall in the gap and be the gap. It is the deepest experience of beauty. And not only of beauty, but of good and of truth also. In the gap you are.

Zacko-1678161 84. TOSS ATTACHMENT FOR BODY ASIDE, REALIZING I AM EVERYWHERE. ONE WHO IS EVERYWHERE IS JOYOUS.

There is a deep attachment to the body - it is bound to be. You have been living in the body for many, many lives, from the very beginning. Bodies have changed, but you were always with a body. This has been so long, so continuous, that you have forgotten that you are different from it. Realize well that you don't know yourself as anything other than the body. Allow your attachment with the body to be revealed in its totality.

When the attachment is fully revealed, drop the attachment and you will realize that you are everywhere. It was not the body which was limiting you; it was your attachment to it. You could also say that you are nowhere - this is equally true, but you can't say that you are somewhere. You are not in the dimensions of time or space. Consciousness exists without any location and there is no limit to your joy or freedom.

85. THINKING NO THING WILL LIMITED-SELF UNLIMIT.

Again, if there is no object to your attention, you are nowhere; or, you are everywhere and you are free. Actually, the mind is just the inner layer of the body and you need not be limited by body or mind. Realize that thoughts are not bridges, but barriers between you and existence. In the silence there is only One.

86. SUPPOSE YOU CONTEMPLATE SOMETHING, BEYOND PERCEPTION, BEYOND GRASPING, BEYOND NOT BEING - YOU.

Tantra is not a struggle technique, it is a transcendence technique. Tantra says you cannot reach the one by fighting through duality. Tantra is in the present. Really, tantra is about choiceless witnessing.

This quite fundamental sutra indicates that when the screen is simply there without any image, you can become aware of yourself.

The whole technique of the Upanishads is condensed in two words; NETI, NETI - not this, not this. Whatsoever comes to the mind, say, `Not this.' When emptiness is there, something happens.

87. I AM EXISTING. THIS IS MINE. THIS IS THIS. OH BELOVED, EVEN IN SUCH KNOW ILLIMITABLY.

You are existing - dig deep into this phenomenon. Feel it, don't think it.

When you get grounded within yourself, there is no society, there is no one. You alone exist. Mind disappears.

Nothing exists except this moment. Bliss happens. If you can feel yourself rooted in existence, merged in it, overflowing with it, and allow even dancing with it, then you will feel, `This is mine. This existence belongs to me. This whole mysterious universe belongs to me. This whole existence has been existing for me. It has created me. I am a flower of it.' This consciousness that has happened to you is the greatest flower that has happened to the universe. And for millions and millions of years this earth was preparing for you to exist. When you are rooted, you are one with the whole, and the existence exists for you. You are not a beggar; you become an emperor. Actually, you simply are - you never begin, you are never going to end.

88. EACH THING IS PERCEIVED THROUGH KNOWING. THE SELF SHINES IN SPACE THROUGH KNOWING. PERCEIVE ONE BEING AS KNOWER AND KNOWN.

Unless we feel it as an emergency, a deep crisis, we tend not do anything. But the house is on fire. Death is staring us in the face every moment of existence. The only way to escape is to wake up.

Knowledge of anything reveals three things: the knowing, the known and the knower. All the techniques of meditation are to reveal the knower. George Gurdjieff called it self-remembering. He said that whenever you are knowing something, always remember the knower.

Buddha called this technique samyak smriti - right-mindfulness. Don't leave the world of the objects. Rather, try to become aware of both the subject and the object simultaneously, the outer and the inner simultaneously. When you are aware of both the known and the knower, suddenly you realize you are neither - you are the non-identified witness - very minute, very small, yet atomic.

89. BELOVED, AT THIS MOMENT LET, MIND, KNOWING, BREATH, FORM, BE INCLUDED.

Swami Ramteerth used this technique. Include everything in your being and don't discard anything; then, there is no self, there is no ego; only consciousness remains and ultimately the whole universe becomes inclusive to you.

90. TOUCHING EYEBALLS AS A FEATHER, LIGHTNESS BETWEEN THEM OPENS INTO HEART AND THERE PERMEATES THE COSMOS.

Whenever you are bored, this technique will immediately refresh you. Whenever you are tired, it will immediately revitalize you. Anyone can do it.

Use both your palms, put them on your eyes, and allow the palms to touch the eyeballs - but just like a feather, with no pressure. When you touch and don't press, your thoughts will stop immediately. When the eyes are silent, relaxed, and the energy is moving backwards, thoughts will stop. You will feel a certain quality of euphoria, and that will deepen daily.

So do it many times in the day. Even for a single moment, touching will be good. To make it a meditation, then do it for at least forty minutes. And the whole thing is not to press. Your hand should just be a feather, a weightless thing, simply touching. Your mind will be totally there, alert, near the eyes, and the energy will be flowing constantly. In the beginning it will be just dropping in drops. Within months you will feel it has become a river-like thing, and within a year you will feel it has become a flood.

This lightness between the two eyes will start dropping into the heart, and the heart will open to receive it. You will be washed completely, washed away. You will not feel that you are. You will feel simply the cosmos is.

91. KIND DEVI, ENTER ETHERIC PRESENCE PERVADING FAR ABOVE AND BELOW YOUR FORM.

This technique can be done only if you have done the one before. Whenever it happens that you feel light, levitating, as if you can fly - you will become aware that around your body form there is a bluish light, which is the presence of the etheric body.

This technique uses the etheric body, and the etheric body is the easiest to realize. The deeper the body, the more difficult; but the etheric body is just near you, just near the physical. It penetrates your body and it is also around your body just like a hazy light, a blue light, hanging all around like a loose robe. If you can see that blue light around you, thinking will be stopped.

Once you have become aware, then help the blue glow to grow, help it to increase and expand just by attending to it. The more it grows, the more you become silent. The more you become silent, the more it grows.

92. PUT MINDSTUFF IN SUCH INEXPRESSIBLE FINENESS ABOVE, BELOW AND IN YOUR HEART.

Life is not a problem; it is a mystery. It is not to be solved; just lived.

If we look at the whole then nothing is knowable, we just go on pushing the mystery backwards. All our questions are temporary, they appear to be answers only to lazy minds. If you have a penetrating mind you will come again upon the same mystery, only it has been pushed back, a step back. Just behind the answers the question still is hidden. These techniques are to help you to move more deeply into mystery, not into knowledge.

If your mind can be without thought, then it is very subtle, the subtlest thing possible in existence. You cannot conceive of a more subtle possibility. Consciousness is the most subtle thing. When there are no thoughts in the mind, you have pure mind. The pure mind can move towards the heart.

When there is mindfulness without thought, a very great phenomenon happens because when the roots are cut, immediately consciousness drops back to the heart, to the original place where it had been. You become a child again. Pure consciousness is inexpressible.

The heart is not departmental, like the mind. When you move to the heart, you look lovingly at existence as a total being. In the heart, the false entity, the ego, disappears. It was a creation of the head. From the heart the cosmic is, the individual is not; the whole is, the parts are not. And remember, when you are not, you cannot create a hell; when you are not, you cannot be in misery; when you are not, there can be no anxiety, no suffering. All anxiety, all suffering, exists because of you identifying as a false, separate self - the shadow of the mere shadow of what you really are.

One who is ready to be possessed by love, by prayer, by the cosmos, means one who is ready to die as an ego. Only that one can know what life really is, what life has to give. What is possible becomes immediately actual, but you must put yourself at the stake. This technique is beautiful. It doesn't say anything about your ego. It doesn't say anything about it. It simply gives you a technique, and if you follow the technique, the ego will have disappeared.

93. CONSIDER ANY AREA OF YOUR PRESENT FORM AS LIMITLESSLY SPACIOUS.

This is the same, with the objective to destroy limits; just through a different door. The mind cannot exist with the unbordered, so if you can try something limitless, the mind will disappear.

Close your eyes and imagine that your head has become infinite. Buddha is sitting under his Bodhi tree. Can you imagine what he is thinking? He is not thinking at all. His head is the whole cosmos.

You can consider the whole body. Just close your eyes and consider that the whole body is spreading, spreading, spreading, and then the boundaries are lost. It has become infinite. What will happen? You cannot even conceive of what will happen.

94. FEEL YOUR SUBSTANCE, BONES, FLESH, BLOOD, SATURATED WITH THE COSMIC ESSENCE.

Mind and matter are two sides of the same coin. Even imagination is a mode of reality because the mind is a manifestation of reality. And when you change the imagination in the mind, you are changing the mode of reality. For Tantra nothing is unreal. Even a dream has its own reality - and it affects you.

The next few techniques start from your imagination, from your dreaming, from your mind.

Remember that whatsoever happens to your mind is not superficial - it is happening because of you.

For seven days try one simple experiment: feel your blood, your bones, your flesh, your body, filled with sadness -- every cell of the body sad; dark night around you; very heavy, depressed; not a single ray of light; no hope, gloomy, just as if you are going to die.

Go on thinking in this way, don't disturb this mood. And then, after seven days, see how you feel. You will be just a dead weight.

You will realize that if you can do it with sadness, then why not happiness? Secondly, you will become aware that whatever sadness you have been suffering was not real. You were the creator of it. You may never be sad again, because now you know that you are the key.

Then, for seven days try just being in a stream of bliss - floating in it, every breath giving you ecstasy: just feel it. Go on imagining, and by and by you will forget completely that you are imagining it -- it will have become a reality.

After 7 days of sadness and then 7 days of bliss, then enter this sutra. Move from sadness and happiness Try the origin, the very origin of life - the cosmic essence. And feel yourself filled with it.

Feel as if the Divine is flowing through you: you are not, but the cosmic exists in you, God exists in you. When you feel hungry, he feels hungry -- then to give food to the body becomes worship. When you feel thirsty, he feels thirsty -- the cosmic in you. When you feel sleepy, he feels sleepy, he wants rest. Be saturated with it. You are no more. The `no-moreness' that this technique can bring you is the ultimate.

feelinglight 95. FEEL THE FINE QUALITIES OF CREATIVITY PERMEATING YOUR BREASTS' AND ASSUMING DELICATE CONFIGURATIONS.

This technique is specifically for women. Women's positive electricity pole is in the breasts and the whole creativity of the feminine body is around the breasts and the whole creativity of feminine existence is rooted in motherhood.

Being relaxed, just concentrate on the breasts, right on both of the two nipples of the breasts. Become one with them, forget the whole rest of the body. You will feel happy and a sweetness will pervade all over your being and your body will lose gravity. You will feel light, as if you can fly.

Gradually, you will become more motherly.

Then your creativity will arise. You may have visions.

Go on watching your breasts and be a witness. A moment will come when they will start disappearing - and when SHUNYATA, nothingness, happens, when just space, just space remains and the breasts have disappeared, then you are under the Bodhi tree.


060516t 031516t The rest of these techniques are concerned with aloneness.

Loneliness is an ugly, negative, depressive thing - it is a sadness; the absence of the other. You would like the other to be there, but the other is not, and you feel that and you miss them. YOU are not there in loneliness, the absence of the other is there, in thought.

Loneliness is the feeling that comes when one is escaping from aloneness, when one is not ready to accept it. If you do not accept the fact of aloneness, then you will feel lonely. Then you will find some crowd or some means of intoxication in which to forget yourself.

Even if you are attached to a man or woman or a friend, and it is only the attachment of lust, you will remain lonely. Have you not watched it? Attached to a woman, attached to a man, but still you remain lonely. Somewhere deep down there is no communication with the other; you are cut off, like islands. Even dialogue seems to be impossible. Lovers ordinarily never talk to each other, because each talk creates argument, and each talk brings conflict. By and by, they learn to be silent; by and by, they learn somehow to avoid the other, or at the most, tolerate. But they remain lonely. Even if the other is there, there is space; the inner space remains unfulfilled. Loneliness is a beggarly dependence.

Aloneness is totally different. YOU are there, it is your presence; it is a positive phenomenon. You don't miss the other, you are present to yourself, without thought. Aloneness is SHEER independence.

Aloneness is one of the fundamental experiences as you enter silence. In silence there is nobody else, you are simply alone. The deeper your silence will be, thoughts will be gone, emotions will be gone, sentiments will be gone - just pure being, a flame of light, burning alone.

So whatever happens in silence - either sadness or aloneness - remember, in silence nothing wrong can ever happen. Whatever happens is going to enhance the beauty of it, deepen the charm of it; anything that happens will bring more and more flowers, more and more fragrance to it.

Aloneness comes out of awareness; it has nothing to do with where you are in the outside world but where you are in the INSIDE world.

On the way to your aloneness, you may feel terror, but know that even it has a beauty. Look at it from your place of presence.

Alone, you can grow, because there is space to grow - nobody else to hamper, nobody else to obstruct, nobody else to create more complex problems. Alone you can grow as much as you want to grow, because there is no limit; no self-definition dependent on another. Alone, you are no one, empty, empty of another completely.

Through aloneness, the ego is shattered. It has nothing to relate to, so it cannot exist as it exists only with the other. Either present or absent, the other is needed for ego.

To feel 'I' the other is needed, a boundary of the other. Fenced from the neighbors I feel 'I'. When there is no neighbor, no fencing, how can you feel 'I'? You will be there, but without any ego. The ego is a relationship and exists only in relationship.

Jean-Paul Sartre says: The other is hell. And he is right in a way, because whenever you are thinking of the other you are in hell. And all thoughts are addressed to others.

When you are in a state of no-thought you are alone, and aloneness is purity. In that aloneness happens all that is worth happening. Your aloneness is your essential being.

I am always alone. I have always been alone on my path. Even today I am absolutely alone. Your being here does not make any difference - my aloneness remains untouched. The Truth is, so are you, underneath your fears and desires and loneliness and fear of being alone.

Consciousness has come to the point now where you know that you are alone. And only in aloneness can you attain enlightenment.

So, if you are ready to be alone, unwaveringly alone, neither escaping nor falling back, just accepting the fact of aloneness as it is - it becomes a great opportunity. Then you are just like a seed that has much potential in it. But remember, the seed must destroy itself for the plant to grow. Ego is a seed, a potentiality. If it is shattered, the divine is born. The divine is neither "I" nor "thou," it is One. Through aloneness, you come to Oneness.

The first thing we must do is to accept aloneness as a basic fact and learn to live with it. Do not create any fictions or you will never be able to know the truth. Fictions are projected, created, cultivated truths that prevent you from knowing what is. Live with the fact of your aloneness. If you can live with this fact, if there is no fiction between you and this fact, then the truth will be revealed to you. Every fact, if looked into deeply, reveals the truth.

When you become aware of your aloneness, then you become aware of the aloneness of others also. Then you know that to try to possess another is trespassing.

Move from things to thoughts; from thoughts to the thinker. Just go on moving inwards. The centre, your very being, is nothing but consciousness. It is nothing but a witnessing and you are left absolutely alone. In that aloneness is God; in that aloneness is liberation, moksha; in that aloneness is nirvana; in that aloneness for the first time you are in the real.

Be alone. So much so that not even in your consciousness does any shadow of the other move.

96. ABIDE IN SOME PLACE ENDLESSLY SPACIOUS, CLEAR OF TREES, HILLS, HABITATIONS. THENCE COMES THE END OF MIND PRESSURES.

Man is born alone and dies alone, but between these two points he lives in society, he lives with others. Society, though, is just accidental. Aloneness is man's basic reality. Hence every religion says to move into solitude, into aloneness, so that you can for a time leave society and all that society has given to you, and face yourself directly. Life's dramas events, history, are like beads, but deep down, at the string, you are always alone.

Drop the idea of utility. Be useless, and enjoy it. Only then can you be alone. You simply be yourself and enjoy your solitariness, just like a rock or a tree or a river. Learn again how to be alone.

When you move alone on a solitary hilltop you have space all around you, endless space. The pressure of the crowd, the pressure of others around you, leaves you. You will sleep more deeply. You will have a different quality of awakening in the morning. You will feel free. An inner pressure circle is not there. You will feel unimprisoned, unfettered.

Once you've learned how to be alone, you will be able to carry your aloneness into any crowd.

duccio-1911988 97.CONSIDER THE PLENUM TO BE YOUR OWN BODY OF BLISS.

This technique is concerned with the prior one. Consider space to be your own body of bliss. Meditating on a hilltop with endless space before you, you can do it. Consider it to be filled with your own body of bliss.

There are seven bodies. The bliss body is the last body, so the more you enter within, the more you feel yourself to be blissful. You are nearing the bliss body, the layer of bliss. It is just around your essential soul, which is the first body from within outwards, or the last body from without inwards. Just around your being, the essential soul, is the layer of bliss. It is called the bliss body. Sitting on a hilltop, looking at the endless sky, feel that the whole space, the whole plenum, is filled with your bliss body. Feel that your bliss body has increased and the whole space is filled with it.

How will you feel it? You don't know what bliss is so how to imagine it? It will be better to try first to feel that the whole space is filled with silence, not with bliss. Feel it filled with silence. Nature will be helpful about it because in nature even noises are silent.

And when you feel that the sky has become silence, only then should you try to be filled with bliss. As silence deepens you will have the first glimpse of bliss.

98. IN ANY POSITION GRADUALLY PERVADE AN AREA BETWEEN THE ARMPITS INTO GREAT PEACE.

Life without is a cyclone - a constant conflict, turmoil, struggle. But it is only so on the surface - just as on the surface of the ocean are waves, maddening noise, constant struggle. But this is not all of life. Deep down there is also a center - soundless, silent, no conflict, no struggle. In the center, life is a noiseless flow, relaxed, a river moving with no struggle, with no fight, no violence. Towards that inner center is the search.

This centering is the aim. Once you are centered you can move to the periphery but you will be totally different. The quality of your consciousness will have changed altogether. Then you can move to the periphery but you will never be the periphery again - you will remain at the center. And remaining centered at the periphery is beautiful. Then you can enjoy it; it will become a beautiful play.

And any moment that periphery becomes too much, too heavy on you, you can go back to the original source - you can have a dip. Then you will be refreshed, rejuvenated, and you can move to the periphery again. Once you know the way.... And the way is not long. You are not going anywhere else than into your own self, so it is not long. It is just near. The only barrier is your holding on, holding to the periphery, afraid that if you leave it you will be lost. The fear feels just as if you are going to die. Moving to the inner center is a death - death in the sense that your identity with the periphery will die, and a new image, a new feeling of your being will arise.

Tantra techniques are a deep and total relaxation into oneself. If you know how to relax then nothing can disturb you.

This is a very simple method but it works miraculously.

Be in an easy relaxed position. Close your eyes and feel all over the body. Wherever you feel tension, make it more so, because it is easy to relax when it is intense. So if you feel some tensions in the face then strain all the face muscles as much as possible, create tension and bring it to a peak. Bring it to a point where you feel that no more is possible - then suddenly relax. In this way see that all parts of the body, all the limbs are relaxed. Relax the body and then forget the body.

Close your eyes and feel just the heart area with your total attention. Feel it filled with great peace. If you can find peace directly - and this is the method for it - your life will become filled with love.

99. FEEL YOURSELF AS PERVADING ALL DIRECTIONS, FAR, NEAR.

Drop your boundaries, your self-imposed prison.

First, withdraw your efforts to create a secure life. Understand that life is insecurity. And if you are ready to live in insecurity, only then will you be alive. Insecurity is freedom. If you are ready to be insecure, constantly insecure, you will be free. And freedom is the door to the Divine.

You simply begin in the heart and end nowhere. You have a center and no periphery.

100. THE APPRECIATION OF OBJECTS AND SUBJECTS IS THE SAME FOR AN ENLIGHTENED AS FOR AN UNENLIGHTENED PERSON. THE FORMER HAS ONE GREATNESS: HE REMAINS IN THE SUBJECTIVE MOOD, NOT LOST IN THINGS.

This is a very beautiful method. You can start it as you are; no prerequisite is needed. Just practice being in the center of your consciousness, at selected times and throughout the day and night.

Take a deep breath and exhale it whenever you feel that something is impressing you, influencing you, dragging you away from you.

When you can achieve the witnessing state of mind for even a single moment, you will feel you are alone and nothing can impress you. Any moment you can take shelter in your own center, the world becomes powerless and you become the master of your own being. This is what freedom is.

101. BELIEVE OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, PERVADING.

This technique too is based on inner power, inner strength. It is very seed-like. Believe that you are omniscient, all-knowing; believe that you are omnipotent. How can you believe it? Because mind is more powerful than matter.

Belief, in this case, doesn't mean conviction; it means you don't have any doubts. Work with your feeling, not with your reasoning. Drop all your questions.

First, try this experiment. Sit with closed eyes for a few days just thinking that you are not your body - not only thinking but feeling that you are not your body. And if you sit with closed eyes a distance is created. Your body goes on moving away and away. You go on moving inwards. Soon you can feel that you are not the body. If you feel you are not the body, then you can believe you are all-pervading, omnipotent, omniscient, all-knowing, all-powerful. This all-knowingness is an inner quality of awakening. Meditate, and drop your thoughts. When you don't have any thoughts you will feel what this omniscience is.

102. IMAGE SPIRIT SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHIN AND AROUND YOU UNTIL THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE SPIRITUALIZES.

What is imagination? It is getting into an attitude so deeply that the very attitude becomes reality. Imagination is a reality, it is a capacity, it is a potentiality within you.

Just sit in a place where no one will disturb you. Close your eyes and imagine a spiritual force is felt within and without. Within you a river of consciousness is flowing and it is going all over the room, overflowing. When you feel that the body has started vibrating, it shows that the imagination has started functioning. Feel that the whole universe by and by is spiritualized. Through this technique you will have glimpse of the creative force, within and without. This is actually the reality.

103. WITH YOUR ENTIRE CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE VERY START OF DESIRE, OF KNOWING, KNOW.

If you can bring your entire consciousness to anything, it will become a transforming force. When desire arises, be alert just at the beginning with your entirety.

ALEKSEI-PASHENTSEV-1414693 104. O SHAKTI, EACH PARTICULAR PERCEPTION IS LIMITED, DISAPPEARING IN OMNIPOTENCE.

Whatsoever we feel and perceive is limited. But if you can become aware, then every limited thing is disappearing into the unlimited. Limitation is forced by us. Existence is absolutely unlimited and undivided. Look beyond.

105. IN TRUTH FORMS ARE INSEPARATE. INSEPARATE ARE OMNIPRESENT BEING AND YOUR OWN FORM. REALIZE EACH AS MADE OF THIS CONSCIOUSNESS.

In truth forms are inseparate. They appear separate, but every form is joined together with other forms. Our reality is a co-existence.

Even your form and the form of the whole existence is inseparate. You are one with it. You cannot be without it. And the other thing is also true but difficult to conceive: the universe cannot be without you either. You are an intrinsic part of this universe. You are not a stranger. You and everything else is made of the same consciousness.

106. FEEL THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF EACH PERSON AS YOUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS. SO, LEAVING ASIDE CONCERN FOR SELF, BECOME EACH BEING.

Existence is One. The human problem arises because of human self-consciousness. Consciousness gives everyone a feeling that they are separate. Consciousness gives you a feeling that you are the center of your being and that others are `other', that you are different from them. This feeling is false, and whatsoever is based on a falsity will create anguish.

Tantra, yoga and other methods of meditation are just to make you aware that separateness is false and inseparateness is real. And if you can become aware of that you will be totally different, because the center will have disappeared from you and it will take its right place in the universe.

Sitting near a tree, just feel the tree and feel that you have become one with it, that there is a flow within you, a communication, a dialogue, a melting. Sitting near a flowing river just feel the flow, feel that you and the river have become one. Lying under the sky, just feel that you and the sky have become one. In the beginning it will be just imagination but by and by you will feel that you are touching reality through imagination.

Whosoever comes near you, simply dissolve into him or her and feel that you are not two lives, but one life, flowing. Lose the concern for the self. If even sometimes, even for a few moments, you can lose concern for the self and can become concerned with the other, with the other's self, you will be entering a different reality, a different dimension. Hence so much emphasis on service, love, compassion. Because compassion, love, service, mean concern for the other's self, not your own.

Become the tree, become the river, become the wife, become the husband, become the child, become the mother, become the friend - this can be practiced every moment of life. Empathy means you have become so sympathetic that really you become one. The real meaning of prayer is affinity with existence.

107. THIS CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTS AS EACH BEING, AND NOTHING ELSE EXISTS.

Matter is just an appearance; deep down there is only energy. When you penetrate deep into energy, energy also disappears and only consciousness remains. That consciousness is God and only God exists. Live with this notion. Everything is alive and conscious.

108. THIS CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE SPIRIT OF GUIDANCE OF EACH ONE. BE THIS ONE.

You only ARE whenever you stop thinking. Zen swordsman say: "Be moment to moment with the inner guide, don't think. Allow the inner being to do whatsoever happens to it." When something comes from the inner, it comes from your navel upwards. You can feel this flow. Lose the head and drop into this inner guide. It is there.

Whenever you are puzzled in a situation and you cannot see how to get out of it, don't think; just be in a deep non-thinking and allow the inner guide to guide you. This is what faith is. Follow the inner guide; trust it, and move with it.

109. SUPPOSE YOUR PASSIVE FORM TO BE AN EMPTY ROOM WITH WALLS OF SKIN - EMPTY.

The last four techniques are concerned with emptiness - they are the most delicate, the most subtle. Once you enter emptiness you have entered all - you may call it the Divine, you may call it God, or ATMA, soul, whatsoever you like, but you can enter the truth only when you are totally empty.

Just sit in a meditative posture, relaxed, alone, your backbone straight and the whole body relaxed - as if the whole body is hanging on the backbone. Then close your eyes. For a few moments go on feeling relaxed, more relaxed, becoming calmer and calmer and calmer. Do this for a few moments, just to be in tune. And then suddenly start feeling your body is just walls of skin and there is nothing inside; there is no one inside. Really, this is the case: thoughts are just like clouds moving in the sky. They don't have any roots and they don't belong to the sky, they simply roam in the sky. They come and they go and the sky remains untouched, uninfluenced. They don't even belong to you.

Watch. When the clouds slow down; when the thoughts stop, even momentarily, the very glimpse of the emptimness will fill you with such deep bliss you cannot imagine.

Go on dropping into that emptiness. A moment will come sometime when you feel everything has disappeared; that there is no one, nobody, the house is vacant, the lord of the house has disappeared, evaporated. In that gap, in that interval, when you are not present inside, the Divine will be present. When you are not, God is, bliss is.

BUDI-'CC-LINE'-2268821 110. GRACIOUS ONE, PLAY. THE UNIVERSE IS AN EMPTY SHELL WHEREIN YOUR MIND FROLICS INFINITELY.

This technique is based on the dimension of play, which is best to be applied to your whole life. Be playful. If you are playful in life then you can be playful inside with the mind also. Mind can be there for long only if you are serious.

111. SWEET HEARTED ONE, MEDITATE ON KNOWING AND NOT-KNOWING, EXISTING AND NOT-EXISTING. THEN LEAVE BOTH ASIDE THAT YOU MAY BE.

Meditate on the positive aspect of life and then on the negative - then put both aside because you are neither.

Look at the one who was born and the one who will die, put put both aside and look within. There you are - that which is never born and which is never going to die.

Knowing and not-knowing, existing and not-existing - you can do it with any positive-negative polarity. Then leave both aside that you may be.

Just don't cling to anything positive or negative because with non-clinging you will find yourself. You are there but because of the clinging, you are hidden. With non-clinging you will be exposed, you will be uncovered. You will explode.

fanny_by_matmoon 112. ENTER SPACE, SUPPORTLESS, ETERNAL, STILL.

Three qualities of space have been given in this technique. Supportless: there can be no support in space. Eternal: it can never end. Still: it will be soundless, it will be silent. Enter this space, it is within you.

This is the ultimate technique. Be supportless; not clinging to anything. If you have the courage to be supportless, this very moment you can enter it. The door is open. The invitation is for all, all and everyone. But courage is needed; courage to be alone, courage to be empty, courage to dissolve and melt, courage to die. And if you can die within to your inner space, you will attain to the life which never dies.
