"The only wealth that is going to be with us and which is permanent and will travel with us, is the wealth of Naam. That is the wealth which nobody can steal from us. Nobody can deprive us of that wealth. And that is something that we can build here and take with us. That wealth will help us get out of this ocean of life and death and will take us back to our True Home and have us meet with our God Almighty, our Father.

The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart. Those who see themselves in all creatures go day by day into the world of Brahman hidden in the heart. Established in peace, they rise above body-consciousness to the supreme light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear, this Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the mortal and the immortal, he binds both worlds together. Those who know this live day after day in heaven in this very life.
The Self resides within the lotus of
the heart. Knowing this, consecrated
to the Self, the sage enters daily
that holy sanctuary. Absorbed in
the Self, the sage is freed from
identity with the body and lives
in blissful consciousness.
Sama Veda, Chandogya
Upanishad 8.3.3-4, The Upanishads,
A spiritual awakening is just that - an awakening. We still have to get out of bed. Some people awaken for just a moment and then doze off again. If we want to stay awake and alive, if we want the miracle of recovery to continue to unfold in our lives, we find ways to put this awakening into action. If we are not carrying the message, we go to sleep again.
I don't think existence wants you to be serious. I have not seen a serious tree. I have not seen a serious bird. I have not seen a serious sunrise. I have not seen a serious starry night. It seems they are all laughing in their own ways, dancing in their own ways. We may not understand it, but there is a subtle feeling that the whole existence is a celebration.

This Human body is the temple of Devi , all the Shakti peethas thrive within each and every organ of your body . The grace of Shakti is available to every life in this universe as it is by her will everything that is created has come into existence . Abundance of Goddess can only be experienced by worshiping her both inside as well as outside . In Kaula traditions of Goddess all women , men and children are worshiped as her forms as worship of the Divine in a living being is the most dearest to the Goddess . She can be easily experienced when you approach her without greed /expectations to fulfill a desire . In absence of a desire , a peaceful and stable mind exists . A man who desires only union with divine and becomes bereft of mortal identities is Shiva . The quality of Shiva is what the Goddess expects in her devotee . Only with the nature of Shiva , the union with Shakti takes place . The completeness of Mother can be experienced by the inner union of the self ( Shiva ) with the creation ( Shakti )

Those of us who consider ourselves to be somehow involved in the birthing of a new age should discover Gaia as well. The idea of Gaia may facilitate the task of converting destructive human activities to constructive and cooperative behavior. It is an idea that deeply startles us, and in the process, may help us as a species to make the necessary jump to planetary awareness.
Wait awhile, close your eyes, let your breathing stop three seconds or so, listen to the inside silence in the womb of the world, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, re-recognize the bliss you forgot, the emptiness and essence and ecstasy of ever having been and ever to be the golden eternity.

“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.”

Learning to rise above body-consciousness, knowing yourself as a spiritual being, you are free. As a soul, you experience spiritual freedom. From the early archives of Spiritual Awakening Radio and now shared for the first time with the podcast world, a program dedicated to one of the great spiritual classics of Sant Mat spirituality called, The Philosophy of Liberation (Moksha-Darshan), on the Goals and Practices of the Sant Tradition of India
When I use the word ‘God,’ I am referring to the unfathomable wisdom and love that is woven into the fabric of existence, and which transcends existence at the same time. This is not to deny the confusion, sorrow, and even violence that we can experience in our lives. Apparently, existence contains all possibilities, both positive and negative; since its source is infinite, how could it be otherwise? The problem begins when we conceive of a God who consciously decides what will and will not happen. Then we have to wonder why such a God would decide, or allow, for so many terrible things to occur. There are many elaborate theologies to explain this conundrum away, but in the end, none of them make a whole lot of sense. The problem is not with God, but with our conception of God. We have created God in our own image; that is the problem. God is the Infinite—containing all possibilities and all outcomes. God is not a cosmic someone who directs the events of life.
“When I struggle, I swim against the flow of life. When I swim with the current, I become buoyant and uplifted. It is the same in meditation. If I struggle, I become swamped in resistance. If I let go, and just observe my resistance, I am carried along with the flow of life.”

“The Eternal Flame” Within each of us burns a fire. The spark of life itself. It cannot be extinguished. The eternal center of all that has even been, all that is, and all that shall be. Eternity. It is immortal. Without bounds, time, distance. It is all ever burning. Ignite yourself with this flame and become life’s radiant beacon.“Fire Calendar” by Vladimir Kush.
God dwells in you, as you,
The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.

Don't fill your head with the
"voices" of others -
the so-called "teachings" of others...
Don't seek what you need in the external world
of techniques, and foolish games of
clever worldly wisdoms.
Instead, seek the company of the Innermost
of your own Being - in the Silence of Being;
The True Wisdom - The Innate Wisdom;
The Inner Voice of Inherent, Intuitive Wisdom...
Trust the "Wisdom Mother" within...

"TO COME HOME TO YOURSELF May all that is unforgiven in you Be released. May your fears yield Their deepest tranquillities. May all that is unlived in you Blossom into a future Graced with love."

You can stand on your head for an hour, or recite mantras and chant them for hours. All this is possible. The mind is deceiving you; the mind doesn't like to be quiet. The only way the mind can be beaten is not to give rise to a thought. Don't start a thought. So simple. This mind likes to engage in activities and exercises. When you are not active mentally, this is peace.

the Upanishads are referred to in the Mundaka itself a" 'the great Vveapon, the mighty bow' thr·ough which the individual soul (the Atman) can be sped towards the goal of Brahman and become ·one with it. Adi Shankaracharya takes the word 'Upanishad' to mean that knowledge by which ignorance is loosened or destroyed. Taken together, it is clear that the Upanishads represent a unique corpus of philosophical thought and spiritual experience. Tu the Hindu tradition there is not the curious dichotomy that we :find in the West between philosophy and religion , the former beiug merely a mental formulation not necessarily connected with spiritual vision and experience.
Spiritual Knowledge is the only thing that can destroy our miseries for ever, any other knowledge satisfies wants only for a time. It is only with the knowledge of the spirit that the faculty of want is annihilated for ever; so, helping man spiritually is the highest help that can be given to him. Until there is spiritual strenght in man even physical needs cannot be well satisfied.
