‘You continue through the events, untouched by them’

Sat, 07/10/2010


Take 15 seconds to greet the person next to you. Just familiarize with the person next to you. We convey more through our presence than our words. Our presence conveys reality. Communication happens through vibes. We often say this, “I don’t get good vibes.” It is so true. True communication happens through the vibrations. I may stand here for two hours talking about love and it would not mean anything. Yet just a look from a baby says everything. If you are stressed and angry, those vibes will be communicated to others. Neither at home nor at school has anyone taught us how to handle these vibes. There is a way. See, life from a broader perspective. In your body, there are billions of cells that are born and die everyday. When you use a face scrub, it removes the dead cells. Many cells are born and many die, but you remain the same.

In the same way, see the world as changing. You continue through the events, untouched by them. You are a diamond. Nothing can shake you. Nothing can ever reduce your love. We are above all incidents. Someone may praise or blame, but nothing can touch you. You are like a glowing lamp, a flower that is ever fragrant. Are you are still here? Is it too airy-fairy? It appears to be a dream but it is true. You are connected with everyone in the universe. Whether people acknowledge or not you are the heart of the universe, heart of this existence. This is exactly what spirituality is. Recognize that you are the center of this entire existence. You are not the small ego. Rather you are the consciousness that has no boundaries. It is so vast. Every child has this from birth, but somewhere we enclose ourselves into these limited identities. We must see through this veil. Meditation is one important tool for this.
Are you all here? What is happening now? Want to hear more? What next?

Real intelligence is not what we communicate verbally. Are you with me? Verbal communication is incidental. It merely fills in the gaps.

Meditation has three golden rules to follow. First, be relaxed and comfortable. For the next 10-15 minutes, sit with a thought that “I want nothing.” Got it? If you say, “I want to drink water,” you are not meditating. The second rule is, “I do nothing.” For these next 10 minutes, ‘I do nothing. I want nothing and I do nothing.’ The third rule is “I am nothing.” If you think you are intelligent, forget it. Yet if you think you are stupid, you are in the same boat. If you think you are too poor or too rich or very holy, forget about it. If you think you are a sinner, forget about it. So you are nothing! You want nothing, you do nothing and you are nothing. These are three golden rules for meditation.
