The Highest Bliss – 01.26.12

Excerpt:  "Within each of us is the deathless spirit.  The eternal self, that lies within and yet beyond, transcending the ego mind and this phenomenal world, and yet it is the very essence and core and center of our being.  The purpose of all spiritual practices is to attain the realization of the deathless spirit.  This alone confers eternal life, freedom from suffering, from illusion, from karma, and offers the direct union with the Supreme Being….  The most direct way to achieve the realization of the eternal Atman, which is the Holy Spirit, is simply to silence the chatter of the ego mind and hold your attention at the root of the ‘I’ thought.  Not the ‘I’ thought itself, but the root which you feel as the urge to think with the word ‘I’….  Once you fall into thought you have moved from the realm of being into the realm of representation and you become alienated from spirit.  First into soul and then into ego….  Remember that this world is only a dream in the mind of God.  What is real is the Supreme Being.  Don’t let yourself remain locked in lower states of false consciousness, but go directly to the source.  This can be achieved easily if you do not let yourself to be deceived by negative thoughts.  Hold to the silence and the higher you go the more the divine energy will pull you up and there will be no struggle at all.  It will happen automatically as if your mind has become an anti-gravity apparatus, which it is because the mind is light.  Let the light take you up into the highest bliss…."  Recorded on the evening of Thursday, January 26, 2012.

Excerpt: "What we learn from Yoga and the science of the extraction of the ultimate essence is that all growth is about the extraction of that which is pure and meaningful from that which is impure and to be rejected.… It is to be extracted from our own consciousness. That is the only way we will ever know God – by extracting out the pure God-presence out of our grosser, impure consciousness. This is what we do in meditation. It’s an extraction process….it is a skill and an art that must be taught, and has been taught, through every culture until our most recent one…. there are really five stages of this process of extraction…" Recorded on the evening of Thursday, January 19, 2012.
