When all is said and done,even this last facade ,THIS GOLDEN MASK, of CONSCIOUSNESS, that which is able to cognise all there is and all there is not,both ends of the spectrum drops away.

This that is the awareness of its own self awareness...THE GOLDEN MASK..falls away too

NOTHING TO HOLD ON TO ~~~~~~~

LET GO~~~~~~~

the golden mask

Yes, Samsara,I speak of TRUTH as I have experienced it ,in the quite stillness,at the feet of my guru.

Not a single word was ever exchanged externally with the external guru.
A look, a smile, sometimes even a frown..!!

The experience of awakening was spontaneous and sudden with no warning.
I cannot even technically call it an experience ,as it really is in the total dissolution of the "me",and of the the one that experiences,that TRUTH penetrates this illusiory sense of self...!!!
That dissolution and simultaneous revelation IS THE GURU'S GRACE.
{ This was on the 1st of JANUARY 1993.}

As revelations after revelations started unfolding from the satguru within, {sometimes of scriptures ,with information of chapter and verse of scriptures I had never read nor had any knowledge of }a simultaneous understanding ,like the clicks of chips falling into place...

For a period of about three years thereafter a kind of assimilation into the system is as best as I can describe it.

An all encompssing dimension opened up ,which also contains the life of me, being lived ,not much different from before,and not different or separate fom the totality of I.

This writing happens,as and when it happens, so you are welcome to follow the blogs,which I find sometimes are about ones normal activities ,as I dont separate spirituality from anything else ( in life ).

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE

Who was that guru? If

Who was that guru?

If consciousness has gone than how can you read and write these words for example?

Consciousness

Consciousness does not come or go anywhere.
Pure consciosness is free of all content of a me who reads or writes .
Nothing can be said about it -it would only be conceptualizing.The conceptualising, questioning mind keeps seeking answers,and will never be satisfied, since thats the only way it can keep perpetuating itself.Before a question has been answered, another one is already standing up...hence Christ's adage "be still and know that I AM GOD ".
Not Jesus the person, but the
I AMNESS,CONSCIOSNESS,AWARENESS.....whatever name
All point to that NOTHINGNESS

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE

Ignorance and Knowledge

By the time I reached my guru,I'd really really had it !!!
I had reached the limitation of my mind in trying to figure out how to lead my life {end my sufferings on various aspects of my life.}
For the first time I had acknowledged that my mind didn't have the answers,and I was done figuring out anything.
{ I guess it was total surrender,though I wasnt conscious of it as that }
I now was not even concerned with the suffering or even interested in fixing it...!!!
I wanted to know the TRUTH....
What this whole ball game was about...
I remember reaching my guru ,seated in his presence,having an internal dialogue with him,and literally telling him in no uncertain terms : " Dont give me any B.S. Band-aid answers.{you know how a parent puts band aids on to wound when the child cries over their wounds...??? }
I want to know the TRUTH
I want to know what what this whole ball game is about..
I'M done.

SATGURU : SRI SATHYA SAI

OH HOW MUCH HE MUST HAVE LAUGHED...

Ignorance {unconsciousness } of my true nature {awareness}, and knowledge {consciosness } of my true nature{awareness},both aspects are only appearances in awareness.

Honestly speaking,SAMSARA,when there was realization of the underlying unity of awareness of both these aspects,{they just cancelled each other out },and the conflict dissipated,there was uncontrollable laughter at ridiculousness of the whole situation.
Frankly all that remained was this NOTHINGNESS,EMPTINESS,AWARENESS DEVOID OF ALL CONTENT ,OF ALL SENSE OF SELF.

Infact, NOTHING REMAINED...!!!

Hehehe...!!!

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE
