Most of us are living someone else’s life.
“I am searching the truth, I’m searching the enlightenment!”
Do you know exactly what your are searching for? Do you know what is the meaning of truth or enlightenment?
Searching for enlightenment simply means that you are searching for endless happiness. It simply means that you are searching for a state in which there is no fear. If you are clear about exactly what you are searching for then your search will become easier.
Now think about this statement: “There is lot of mess and disorder in my life so I am trying to clear this mess and create order in my life.” This is very practical statement and it seems easier to accomplish than “I am searching for god”.
Most people are so gullible that they easily get convinced with any stupid idea. It seems that we have switched off the logical faculty of the brain.
A self proclaimed enlightened master (who lived and died in the last century) invented an idea of catharsis. It was like fast breathing followed by screaming and shaking your body. He claimed that his method was the fastest method and he’s going to enlightened more than 10000 people. Just imagine 10000 Buddhas on this planet. I am still searching for a single Buddha (since 25 years) who became enlightened by using this specific technique.
Your brain is a memory device just like a hard disk of your computer. Can you delete a specific file or folder just by shaking your hard disk? Then how can you erase negative beliefs and emotions by shaking your body?
If shaking your body and punching and kicking in air could make you enlightened then Anderson Silva and Mike Tyson could have become a Buddha.
You never think about this.
Once your mind accept a person as an authority then it is open for any bullshit.
If you really want to become free from your negative emotions and limiting beliefs then don’t try to find a shortcut.
One of my friend (who is follower of this beloved master) told me that scientists only talk about the mind and my master talks about going beyond the mind?
What exactly is ‘going beyond the mind’?
You see, your all problems are psychological. That means society has written a malicious code on your brain and you can not trust anyone to debug your corrupted software. You will have to manually search for the viruses and remove them. All your negative thoughts and limiting beliefs are like malicious code. You will have to correct them. Screaming and shaking your body is not going to help you. Fast breathing is not going to help you. Standing on your head is not going to help you. Meditation camps are not going to help you.
If you can not find yourself where you are then most probably you will not be able to find yourself anywhere in the world.
My friend told me that sometimes he feel the presence of his master. I replied him, “You feel his presence because you are not aware of your own presence”.
Dude it is your mind that making you fool. Your all so called enlightened masters are gone and gone forever. They are alive only in your thoughts just like viruses.
My friend told me that my beloved master talked on 108 methods of meditation. I told him I know only one method… just tell your fuckin mind, “SHUT THE FCUK UP!!!!!”
Your mind: “Lalalalalalalalala”
You: “Shut up”
Your mind: “Lalalalalalalalala”
You: “I said Shut Up”
Your mind: “LALALALALALALALALA”
You: “SHUT THE FCUK UP!!!!!”
Your mind: [….]
Your mind is your obedient servant and you don’t need 108 techniques to control your servant. Your ancient masters were most feared people by their own minds because they were ignorant. That’s why they invented these weird techniques.
Even if you read only 3 spiritual books every year you will collect tons of garbage in your head. Spiritual books are like junk food and they increase the cholesterol of your brain.
