All of us Are Gods & We Don’t Need to Fight with Each Other

All of us are Gods & We don’t need to fight with Each Other

“If I have to translate the word ‘Advaita’ with the clear meaning and interpretation of the practical experience, this is the experiential interpretation, expression, experiential expression of Advaitha: “Advaitha does not mean oneness, Advaitha does not mean monism, it means there is no two, there is no one, infinite; but infinite, everything is infinitely powerful”.

That is why the Sanatana Hindu Dharma allows all of us to be Gods and not fight with each other. All of us are gods and we don’t need to fight with each other. We don’t need any superior body to guide all of us, to rotate all of us, or to put a traffic signal for all of us. All the planets are having any traffic policeman to put signal? No! They are all independently intelligent! Independently intelligent all of them exist…..all of them exist and all of them are ultimate. No need for the superior body. Same way, all of us are Gods and no need for superior body. You realize your potentiality, you establish yourself in the space of Completion, you are God! That’s all! ” – Paramahamsa Nithyananda

Embrace Your Ego: What is the Ego? Part 2

In our journey towards Awakening, it is helpful to understand what the ego is. There seem to be many conflicting explanations for what the ego is and what we are supposed to do with it! Such as: kill it, love it, make friends with it, shred it, annihilate it!

Thankfully, Leonard Jacobson explains the ego in simple, understandable terms. Nearly every teaching of his addresses the ego. In this short clip, he explains what the ego is and how to begin to deal with it.

To understand the ego, it helps to understand first, explains Leonard, that Oneness is our natural state. What took us out of our natural state, truth and the natural world? How did that occur?

“Everything else on the planet is simply here, in its fullness and its isness. We’re the only ones that escaped “the world of here” and entered “the world of not here”.”

Entering the world of illusion, took us out of the present moment. And the way we did that was to think, says Leonard.

“The only way you can leave the present moment, is think yourself out of the present moment; there’s no other way, it’s impossible, ” says Leonard. “. . . And if you think your way out of the present moment, where do you go? You go into the past or future, or into the world of the mind.”

How do we imprison ourselves in the world of the mind? Belief. “We imprison ourselves there when we believe in our thoughts.”

“Once you have abandoned the present moment, and become absorbed into the world of the mind: the past and future, the world of thought, idea, concept, opinion, etc.. Once that’s occurred, and you’re functioning as an ego and you’re basically ruled and dominated by the ego.”

Leonard describes two dimensions of the ego:

    1. “The little ‘e’, you functioning in the world as an ego, lost in the world of separation, believing in that as the truth of life; functioning as “Me, me, me”.”
    2. “Then there’s the Ego, with a capital “E”. That’s another level of the ego, that’s “the Custodian”, that’s independent of you and that’s what prevails in the world of separation, the world of illusion.”

“In order to free ourselves, we have to bring to consciousness all the ways we’re functioning as ego in a world of separation and illusion, believing in our thoughts and ideas. Even to believe in your memories is a form of illusion.”

“So we have to own and acknowledge and confess how we’re functioning as egos, lost in separation, always wanting more, never satisfied.”

“There’s no judgement in this, judgement would be of the ego also. This is just observation, witnessing who you have become.”

“Then there’s that other level of the Ego that you cannot defeat. Even God cannot defeat the capital “E”, Ego. And in order to Awaken, you have to really come to a deep, deep knowing, a realization, a recognition, a witnessing of: who and what the Ego is; why it is, how it functions and what will it take for the Ego to release you.”

“And the answer is: the only thing that will bring the Ego to a place of relaxation and surrender – the only thing –  is the energy of love and acceptance, and allowing. And that is only possible from Presence. That is why Presence is so fundamentally important here.”

“And just to hear the truth: The truth is alive and awake in every one of us. When you hear the truth, if you’re open and you’re responsive and you’re not listening with your mind, you can actually feel the settling into Presence that occurs; the opening into Oneness, just hearing the truth.”

“The truth shall set you free.”

“And the truth abides in each one of us, equally. You cannot get the truth from outside of you. You can hear it from outside of you, but  you can only know it from within.”

Leonard’s core teaching is two-part and simple:

    1. To be in Presence and
    2. From Presence, to observe the “ego” and “Ego” and become aware of its actions.

One way I have found to apply this teaching of Leonard’s, is to be fully Present when listening to or watching an Awakened or Enlightened person teaching or speaking and when participating in a Oneness Meditation or a Braco gaze. From Presence, you can feel the truth of a teaching, or the Presence or silence, more fully. And I am sure that every time that I do this, it is relaxing my beloved ego, just a little bit more.

Embrace Your Ego: Don’t Shred it or Kill it! Part 1

“The Ego is your Friend.” Those words are fighting words to most self help and spiritual teachers. So many teachers tell you your ego is your ENEMY. How can a part of you be your enemy? That just doesn’t make sense to me. Because I had this question, the answers have been coming the past few weeks.

In this interview with Lilou, Panache Desai tells us that “When you can start embracing your ego, and accepting your ego, and understanding that that allows you to individually be [you] in this infinite ocean of oneness; it’s your ego that allows you to express yourself uniquely. How brilliant is that? So when you start embracing your ego and understanding its function, it becomes your friend and then it works with you and for you, in your life, instead of against you.”

Stuart Mooney on Enlightenment and Awakening

Stuart MooneyThe Moscow, Russia group of Oneness Blessing givers interviewed Stuart Mooney in January, 2011. In this interview (no longer on 1ness channel on Vimeo), Stuart starts out by answering the question, “What’s the difference between God Realization, Awakening and Enlightenment?”

Here is a section of this that I transcribed and titled:

“You can’t use the jailer to get you out of jail”

Once you see who’s looking at those things, you don’t need any more. Yogis in India go around with turbans and diapers and they’re happy as clams. It’s not outside, it’s inside. And the only way to solve the inside is with Divine Grace. Something other than your head has to solve this.

The greatest realization I ever had was in 2006, when I’m sitting in front of the Guides in India and there were 80 old men like me, who have studied with various yogis for 40 years. We’re all broke and miserable and sitting in front of the Guides [at the Oneness University in India]. And this was our last hope.

So, some of these smart, old guys are saying, “Oh, I am the witness of the witness of the witness watching my mind.”

The Guide says, “Your mind made that up.”

And he goes, “No, no, no, but I ‘m the witness of the guy witnessing the guy making it up.”

The Guide says, “Your mind made that up, as well.”

Then I had the shocking experience that made me stand up in front of the Guides and go, “Oh my god, you can’t get out of this!”

You can’t use the jailer to get you out of jail!

You’re using the machine that has you trapped to help you to get untrapped. It has a vested interest in keeping you trapped. So, if you get untrapped, then the mind is out of a job. And the mind vanishes.

So the mind’s job is to never get you to the answer. It’s just there to keep you busy. Life is like a circular building: the mind tells you the answer’s just around the corner, but there are no corners in a circular building, you never get around the corner.

So, when I said, ‘You can’t get out of it’. The Guides turned to me and they said, “Do you admit defeat? Do you surrender?” They said, “Do you realize that life has completely tricked you and even Enlightenment is made up? And you meditated for 40 years and spent your entire wealth for nothing?” And at that moment, my head exploded and I had my Awakening.

I went back to my room, I laid down in my bed and I thought to myself,  “If it’s completely hopeless and I can never get out, then I don’t have to waste my time seeking anymore.” A great peace came over me. I was Free.

That’s how that works!

Stu da Buddha: American Buddha

If you haven’t heard of Stuart Mooney, well… you have now! He is an Awakened being, considered “God Realized”. He experiences the Oneness of all life as an observer, Divinely guided.

His past includes being a psychologist involved in the ground-breaking studies on Transcendental Meditation (TM) in the 70’s. He’s studied with enumerable yogis over 40 years and has been the subject of scientific experiments of his transmissions of Divine Grace. Now in his 60’s, his audios, videos and courses are well worth attending.

Check his website to see if you can attend one of his events or invite him to speak to your group.

The Neurophysiologic Truth

When the gurus say, “You are god,” they’re telling the truth, the neurophysiologic truth: You are your own guru. You are your own god, because nothing is out there. There’s no given out there. The out there looks different. You ever think what the “out there” looks like to a bat? Or to a lizard with eyes that go like that? — Stuart Mooney

Tatyana’s Story: My First Aware OBE

I’ve been an RSE student for a little less than a year so. Not being totally clear on how to do the disciplines, I was aware of the fact that mastering focus- the ability to clear one’s mind- is a key to further practices and progress.

For me, it is all started with Candle focus. Focus for the sake of focus did not work for me, I really struggled with the discipline, so I decided that I needed a project, a goal to motivate myself, an organized way to practice it. With this in mind while researching the music tracks played at the events at the Ranch [Ed. note: local slang for Ramtha’s school], I discovered Hemi-Sync® brain wave technology and Monroe Institute research on altered states of consciousness.

After I learned who Robert Monroe was and read his books, that was it for me: “Out-of-Body Experiences” (OBEs) became my project, my goal, my motivation.

While researching about Monroe and his methods, I bumped into Michael Raduga’s books and materials and at that time I had decided that I will check it out later.

From the moment I decided to study OBEs, I had no problem practicing focus techniques. Moreover, I could not get enough, especially after I started making progress and interesting things and phenomenon started to happen. For example, my dreams became even more vivid and their recall significantly improved. I was seeing things and hearing things. Messages would pop up into my head, visions that would come true shortly thereafter.

Then I went to the Monroe Institute and participated in an OBE intensive program conducted by another famous OBE guy, William Buhlman. A lot has been happening for me, but I still could not accomplish what I was after – a conscious Out-of-Body-Experience with awareness which is not the same thing, as you will see later.

Just a little over a month ago, I finally returned to Michael’s books and materials and decided to check them out. I watched his seminar on the video and started practicing his techniques. Everything was very clear, straightforward, rationally explained and systematically laid out. Things immediately started working, however my main issue was the noise outside of my apartment building, which was very distracting, especially when I was doing Michael’s “listening in” technique. The noise bothered me previously, so I finally decided to deal with the issue and I got myself ear plugs.

That particular evening, I completely plugged my ears and went to bed with the intention to wake up in the morning and do Michael’s techniques. Also, just before going to bed, I had a lot of fun reading forum posts on Michael’s website about people’s first experiences using Michael’s techniques. All of this lead to the following experience:

I woke up in the middle of the night because of a very loud “thump” I heard somewhere in the building. I was sitting in my bed, thinking that the thump must have been really loud because I could hear it perfectly even with my ears being plugged. I decided to go to the front door and peek into a peep hole in hopes to see what’s going on. I heard the loud “thump” again. It sounded a bit scary. I lowered my feet to the floor, stood up and walked out of my bedroom towards the front door. I could feel the cold floor with my bare feet. I was approaching the front door and seeing the bright peep hole in the darkness, and all of a sudden it hit me: “I am in the Phase!”

I did not believe myself. “I did not do any techniques”, I thought, doubting.

So I decided to test if it is indeed a Phase. I lifted both of my feet up – that made me ‘sitting’ in the air – then I grabbed, with my right hand, the edge of a sliding door of a closet and pushed against the door with my both legs. I flew backwards, all the way to the other side of my living room, really surprised that I was still feeling my hand holding the closet door! My arm must have stretched like 10 feet!

I was floating right by my fireplace, seeing both of my feet in the air in my pajama pants. And I still did not believe that I was in the Phase, so I decided to fly up, but I could not push against the floor because my feet were in the air. So I concluded that it’s not the Phase and I decided to go back to sleep.

At that moment I found myself sitting on my bed, again realizing that my plugged ears bother me tremendously so I took the plugs out and in a second I realized that my ears are still plugged. “Hmm”, I thought, “that’s weird, I just took the plugs out, didn’t I?”

And that’s when I realized I am laying in my bed and feeling my real ears. I jumped in thrill, as I realized what had just happened. It was my first real Out-of-Body Experience, although I did not believe it! I was aware of the experience, but I was about conscious, otherwise I would clearly know that I was indeed out-of-body.

I took a notepad and as I was writing everything down, I vividly remembered vibrations that I felt before leaving the body. It was exactly as they are usually described – like being electrocuted without pain.

Since that day, I had a few lucid dreams where I would feel vibrations and know that I can leave the body. I had one interesting morning when I was practicing Michael’s techniques and nothing seemed to be happening, so I switched to “creating my day”, only to realize that I am looking at my bedroom with my eyes completely closed. I had few other interesting phenomena, visions, hearings. This is awesome! I can’t wait to learn this really well and then there is nothing I can’t do or experience.

So I thought, how could I have a real training by this guy? He has a school in Moscow, Russia, and I did not have any plans to go there, although it is actually my home city, where I was born and lived until coming to North America. So then I thought I should bring the guy here. Canada won’t have much audience for him, but Yelm would. But how do I do that? Will he come all the way from Moscow?

Imagine how happy I was when I contacted him on Facebook and asked if he has any interest in coming here and he responded that he is already here (in California) and actually looking for partners. That’s what they call “coincidence” and we call “frequency specific”.

From that moment, things just happened seemingly on its own: a friend of mine who I shared my idea with introduced me to Cari (Center for the Creative Arts), who introduced me to Cyndi and Devon, whose tremendous effort and loving hearts made this happen.

So now ladies and gentlemen, I present you Russian OBE Expert Michael Raduga!


No thought

No thought can reveal God. Every thought hides or covers God, your Self. Every thought is a chain; nice thoughts are golden chains. A golden chain will keep you imprisoned just as much as an iron chain. You must undo all thinking. Get the mind quiet. And then quiet enough so the infinite being that you are is self-obvious. It’s there all the time; the thoughts are the noise that’s covering it. However, if you must have thoughts, a thought in the direction of God is much better than a thought in other directions, as it points you toward God. –Lester Levenson

Gratitude Rocks and Amazing Secret to Third Eye Opening

Dave, the Raw Food Trucker is a fantastic guy who lost over 200 lbs after getting on Raw food. One of my favorite video moments of Dave’s is him saying something like, “If you would have told me a year ago that I was going to be a raw food vegan, I would have beat the crap out of you!”

Our whole family and several friends met him in Seattle at the First International Juice Feast Day last year. That video has some great stories of people healed from cancer and other diseases by employing raw foods and juicing.  We also met Dan the LifeRegenerator which really made my 10-year-old daughter’s day who’s first raw food recipe was one of Dan’s!

Dave is an example of what can happen when you clean out your subtle anatomy (your nadis and ojas) and your physical anatomy (your basement membranes and your colon) and the divine energy can get through to you!

The first video explains his practice of Gratitude and how it opened up for him. The second video tells about the secret ingredient that somehow assisted in opening his Third Eye.
