What are the sadhanas that will help you? First let go everything and be in zero. Meditation is very important process to vanquish all the karmas and start something new.
Meditation is not simply about being in zero but being in a wonderful state. Just apply your intellect and shift over, you are in a different state altogether.
This ability to shift will become easier and easier as you meditate and you are able to go into zero. And you let go, forget about the past, forget about the present and you just ‘Look Forward’ to whatever you want. Not worried about the future, the past, or worried about the present.
Being in the present will at the most give you peace, but ‘Looking Forward’ to something nice will give back your life to be wonderful.
Being in the present, being in peace is just a low state of being, that is the first state. Most philosophers have not gone beyond living in the present. The entire philosophy of the world is only -being in the present. Even that they cannot accomplish because it is all intellectual, not experiential reality like Samadhi Dhyan.
You may read Eckhart’s, ‘The Power of Now’, for one thousand years and I can guarantee you, you will not be any better. Unless you learn how to meditate, shifts will not be seen. But even if you mediate for thousand years it is of no good, until you apply your intellect.
Whether you see a God or a demon in the next person, is what makes the difference between you experiencing heaven or hell.
Applying your intellect: seeing the next person as God is very uplifting and it will change many things. First of all your feelings and your experience of the world will shift.
Most people negate the experience of the world. They only think that Karmanye Vadhikaraste… is in silence. Most people suffer because they cannot enjoy the world. So the best they can do is: negate the world. Don’t negate the world, enjoy the world.
Shift how you look at other people. Shift from seeing them as your enemy to seeing them as your friend! It all starts with you, no matter what the condition is.
In an AMC, Advanced Meditation Course where everybody is a ‘Nobody’*, it is very easy to turn all these separations. The hatred, animosity, jealously will all disappear and you start to experience others as Gods. *(Not being bound by role identities, like doctor etc).
Participating in AMC is a very good exercise to continuously experience other people as Gods. To add to it, if, you use your intellect after this experience to affirm, that you are in a state of zero, and that you see people as Gods, your life will be wonderful – a joy, an exhilaration! Whatever you do will be joyful.
The world will no longer trouble you. The world is a beautiful place, but meditation plus AMC is required to experience and live a wonderful life.
Most people don’t know how love is generated! But you, just through ‘being a Nobody’, can know and live it. First learn to be a ‘Nobody’, with your eyes closed, and then you can keep your eyes open and be a Nobody. Then you will continuously be generating love in the world. Until this stage you will always be resisting, working only for your existence. Once the love account starts accumulating, you will have the courage to share whatever you have. Life opens into Universality.
