noisy din of today's fast-paced world, take a deep breath and enjoy each
second as it comes, The Power of Present Moment
Inspired by his own life experiences, he sets out to teach lessons on
getting rid of problems and negative emotions. There is always
positivity or light in our life but people do not see it, but when you live
from moment to moment it is already there, he explains.
An excerpt from The Power of Present Moment:
Since knowledge is based on dead experience or fact or figure or pieces
of information or it is borrowed from books or scriptures, forget all
about knowledge. The real knowledge starts, which is based on
observation, exploration, self-discovery, meditation and living from
moment to moment.
Knowledge is significant when it grows within but not forced upon or
working hard. There is nothing to learn. You have to be ready to
unlearn! YOU ALREADY KNOW TOO MUCH, and all that you
know is false, think of unlearning. That is the beginning of wisdom.
The Power of Present Moment
Mindfulness is the way of life
Mindfulness is the ability to see the things as they really are and
it sees the deep and true nature of all phenomenon, which is
taking place in this moment without any prejudice or
It is just the witness or watchfulness or observation of thoughts.
It sees THE things deeply, down below the level of concepts and
opinions. This sort of deep observation leads to a complete
absence of confusion, the real nature of things.
Mindfulness improves productivity
What happens when a doctor does an operation? He is totally
there mindfully that is okay, but as soon as he moves into the past
or future, he is not able to focus on the operation because of past
memory or thinking about the future is interfering into present
moment leads to unsuccessful operation because he was not in
the moment and mindful.
Eat meals with mindfulness. Taste every morsel of food and enjoy
the aroma, flavor and texture of food.
Nature is divine
Nature is formless, limitless, boundless and infinite. It is another
form of God which is higher self and vibrates at the highest level.
Nature puts you in present moment
All efforts or hard work are superficial if you try to get connected
with nature. It cannot reach to the center of being, just be relax or
totally relax in the moment with only surrender, because all
efforts are useless and futile. It has nothing to do with your
innermost being. You can get everything in your life whatever
you had expected from the nature. They would give you millions
times more, may be when you ask for one flower they would give
you millions of it.
Nature is beyond everything
We spend whole life in earning money and end up in frustration
because we are more connected with material needs, but
problems come out when we forget true self or higher self which is
already within us, this innermost being cannot be discovered by
material desires, but it can be discovered only by deeply
connecting with nature.
The power of Meditation
Meditation is an effortlessness effort to relax in the moment with
thoughtlessness awareness. It is focus on the breath. It does not
matter how many times you disconnect with breath, but to keep
coming back on the breath is my practice.
Let the thoughts come in and go out because it is not your
thoughts, just observe them as it is. It is just observation,
witnessing of the thoughts, you have to see the thoughts as they
really are but never label or judge any of them whether it is
positive or negative.
As you watch, slowly mind becomes empty of thoughts and there
is a emptiness created inside you, turns into nothingness, you got
connected with universe and become alert, aware and conscious
end up producing higher vibration energy; vacuum formation
takes place in which old energy moves out and fresh energy moves
The more you meditate, the more you say, Let the ego die. The
more you meditate, the more you become aware that a certain
death is taking place, but it is not your death - I am going to
die. You are not going to die, only the I, the ego, the personality
or individuality or identification is going to die.
Transformation is bliss
Real transformation takes place when you suffer deeply in
silence, finally end up in blissfulness but it is a great mystery to
know it because suffering is always a blessing, but we miss it and
keep on missing it, because it is beyond understanding until you
have experienced it.
I got transformed when I deeply connected with nature but
nothing has happened when I got profoundly connected with
human being. It means the love between nature and human
being is more powerful than anything.
Those who suffer superficially, end up committing suicide or with
nervous breakdown or as a moving dead body. Only a deep
sufferer can understand it by experiencing. Buddha suffered
silently when he was living luxurious life in a palatial building, he
left material life and lived with poor people in order to understand
the suffering and finally he got transformed.
The power of unconditional love
It is the highest and purest form of love. It can only transform
our lives because it is immense, powerful and connect with the
nature. For example, the love between parent and child.
Unconditional love arises from the core of the heart and
penetrates to the depth of heart. It means that the people who
carry this quality, they look at the things as they really are
because there is no judgement involved. It is also called divine
love, present within all. It can heal all kinds of wounds because it
always grows by sharing with living and non living things on the
planet. It never dissolves but IT always multiplies with sharing.
Only natural love is unconditional because it comes from within
and free from everything. Mother Teresa used to love poor
people, her intention was to help poor people. This love is totally
unconditional with deep gratitude and serving to mankind. The
way Jesus Christ used to heal the poor people by showing
unconditional love by touch.
Anger is poison
There is no difference between anger and venom. When a snake
spits venom, it always harms others and itself as well. When you
put anger on someone else, you are getting more harmed than
others. We cannot suppress or repress it because it is already
We can prevent anger by awareness of it. Whatsoever energy, we
put to create anger, we can change this energy by crying or
laughing or screaming or weeping, by doing this energy of anger
converted into energy of crying because energy is same but it
always change the form, now you feel that anger is already gone.
Whenever anger happens, let it happen to us. Feel, taste and
meditate on it. Go deep down and experience it. Finally a shift
happens from anger to love.
Silence means stop chattering and wandering of mind. It
happens when you are in thoughtlessness awareness stage where
you can see the thoughts as they really are without judgement.
First few minutes, you see that mind is chattering but when it has
settled down then you feel that a great force has arisen within,
which makes you still and silent.
It is the process where ego keep on transcending and you are at
the center of being where all noises disappear, but innermost
being is there which only speaks.
Silence is heard existentially, only silence can be heard and
understood. Words can be heard but only superficially. We are
conditioned to understand only words, not silence because we are
educated in that way, but we have to go beyond words, to reach the
wordless space within us.
Thoughts are things
Take care of what we think because thoughts travel. Words are
secondary. Only thoughts can discover who we really are
