Understand, love and accept what you are now
What “you” are right now is the product of many, many experiences from many, many lives.
“But… That is reincarnation… There is no scientific proof of that..”
In a family all siblings are different even though brought up by the same parents.
Suzy likes beets but she hates carrots. Her sister, likes carrots and hates beets.
What is the scientific explanation of that? 🙂
What “you” are now, is constant change.
Because our consciousness is different at every point in time due to different experiences, it is impossible for everyone to have the same change to the same extent, as to be the same.
In limited words, “All sinners cannot become virtuous at the same time.”
“This is the only time to change. It is now or never. Don’t waste your time. Convert to our religion. Just believe in so and so and you will be saved.”
That is a huge misunderstanding.
Consciousness cannot change by accepting a religion or philosophy. However, the experiences through that religion or philosophy will help in the process of transforming our consciousness.
A religion or philosophy or guru is not the “solution” but an ingredient into the “solution” which will emerge upon each one of us when our time arrives.
That is the reason why, there is no religious path or philosophy which could be labeled as the “true path.”
Spirituality cannot be separated from Life itself.
In short; to learn to live life in balance, in joy… That is true spirituality.
That is why any religion dealing with the future; such as heaven, and a promise of salvation; is not interested in the “now,” (for that “salvation” is in the future,) therefore; beliefs are born as the main way to understand Life “now.”
“What do you mean?”
Your life “now” should fit into the belief of a future.
Heaven is the goal. Act like a heavenly being now.
In theory that may sound good. That is a nice belief.
In practice, it does not work like that.
To act is not the same as being it. Actions are according to our consciousness and not the other way around.
To act heavenly even though our consciousness is not there, is to start our journey into exploring self-dishonesty.
“But… I want to be an angel!”
Understand fully what it is to be a human being first.
That is the “now.” The future will come as a consequence of that.
This is not intellectual understanding. It is living life in awareness.
Therefore, to become conscious, aware is the first step. A belief system is not interested in that.
A belief system is only interested in beliefs about the future.
The discovery of “being” a human being is forgotten to embrace a futuristic ideal.
The “Now” is suppressed in order to live the futuristic ideal.
Life is greater than any belief system.
There is nothing wrong or right in life
Betty had many diseases. She wasn’t able to explain why. Her eyesight started to fail when she was a teenager. Even though Betty was very feminine, she had the “classic” behavioral energy of men: She wanted things her way. She fought with whomever to put anyone in “his or her” place. As a teenager, Betty was fun-loving, disrespectful of authority and daring to the point of not caring about her own life.
Because her pride was shattered through the thought of losing her eyesight, Betty started looking for solutions and answers… Betty had extraordinary psychic abilities and was able to see things and communicate with beings, which many others couldn’t.
It was in that search when Betty joined a religion, which practiced extreme asceticism. Those practices and beliefs helped Betty to tune down her innate aggression. Betty was able to transform that aggressive force in her for the common good. Betty used her communication skills to mingle with people and to make them feel important and content by increasing their self-respect. This practice allowed Betty to transform her own manipulative ways.
Once that transformation took place, it was time for Betty to continue in her path. She changed the isolated ways of living in asceticism into integration with society… That is into Oneness…
Isn’t Betty’s life so “good” and “righteous” so far…? 🙂
Betty was able to overcome her own limits and became an example for others. Betty was growing her consciousness by the experience of going from one extreme into another just to know her own limits and her own balancing act.
Betty was becoming one with life. She was finding herself.
One day, Betty had an appointment with a doctor who practiced a “bio-decoding” technique. Betty wanted to know about the origin of her current diseases, which came strongly with emotional episodes.
This doctor had the ability to tap into Betty’s psychic gifts during the session.
Betty discovered that in her “last life” she was a man by the name of Nicholas. In that life Nicholas owned a trucking business. Nicholas was very good at “doing business” but he was a daring troublemaker at the same time.
Nicholas committed suicide at the age of 46.
The discoveries that Betty had through this session agreed with many of her dreams in the past and with her tendencies. Betty had an unusual love for motorcycles and big trucks with noisy engines.
Betty discovered that those diseases and losing her eyesight was a consequence of her own actions in the past, but at the same time, those diseases were the ticket for her, to discover who she was and to “divinize” her tendencies.
If we look at the life of Nicholas, many could say: “ He lived a bad life. He was “wrong” by committing suicide.”
Those comments and judgments are worthless gossip out of ignorance.
When we see the continuity of life, that is the unlimited part of life beyond the “Me” at this point in time, we could discover that every single experience is completely necessary as it is.
Betty had the strength and aptitude to discover herself, although in a manner which could be described as “painful” by some but everyone has a different path in life.
“Right and wrong” are labels expressing duality. In that labeling we are only concerned about the human laws.
The universe is not bound by human morality.
“Right and wrong” are terms used to bring guilt, shame and to teach humans in a certain state of consciousness, to fear consequences: Punishment.
As we dissolve all dualities from our psyche, we should be able to discover greater Oneness.
The world at the “office” may thrive with “right or wrong.”
The critics, sitting comfortably judging others may feel important by playing Judges of someone’s destiny.
“Talk” doesn’t matter if we are not able to see the complete movie of life.
Of course, the skeptics could say: “Avyakt7, I thought that you are against beliefs… reincarnation is a belief…”
Avyakt7 is not against anything. Avyakt7 merely dissolves his own beliefs.
The story above is a true story. It is the experience of someone who I know. That story is true for her.
As far as Avyakt7 is concerned, that story merely supports an insight: There is nothing wrong unless we view it that way. There is nothing right, unless that is our belief… nevertheless, there are consequences in life.
Life is way more than going to the office and watching sitcoms at night. Life is more than devotional practices, worship to get something out of a belief.
To be able to see life, we may need to remove the lenses with different colors before our eyes… and just take a look at life without any judgment in our hearts.
Diverse questions by readers dealing with beliefs
1. “is that possible to transfer a one soul to the another body? even if the other body is alive? please give me a quick answer thank you.”
That depends on your belief system and experience. What you call “soul” may not be what I understand and experience as soul. In some beliefs systems, it is possible but only for a few “selected ones.” In others it is not, and then you have your own experience. Let us say that a “ghost” or a spirit enters your body. Your behavior will definitely change and you may even feel things that you have never felt before as “real.” Nevertheless, a “soul” hasn’t entered you, but this is what you may refer as soul entering another body.
2. “is it possible that two body can transfer their soul to each other? exchange soul for shorter? by dreaming only?”
Please see answer above.
If you are thinking about it, it may be possible; you may even have experienced; but from that to be “real,” there is a difference. “Reality” changes according to your state of consciousness.
3. How will the entire process of destruction and krishnas birth and Baba revealation take place….When Baba says that those children who become bodiless in one second will go with me and the rest will be left behind, what does he mean???
If I tell you “this is the answer, this is what Baba means,” would you believe me? Why?
Dear reader, Baba just teaches self-transformation. It is the same teachings with different words according to time and belief system. If you have not experienced the subtle self, the soul, the spirit; whatever name we want to use, you will not be able to leave your body in your last moment, without experiencing suffering.
4. “I want to ask that we always talk about goal of human life is to reach enlightenment .But what happens after reaching enlightenment? Do we become the Master soul or what ?”
There is no goal for a human life, but only the one that you believe in. You are just reaching your capacity according to time. The belief of a “goal” comes from the idea of “continuous progress” continuous evolution in linear time. If you believe in cyclical time, there is no point for a “goal.”
Enlightenment is important for those who have not reached that state, for whatever they think it means; once they have reached that state, it is no longer important.
When we are situated in the field of beliefs, all you will get is a belief. If I tell you: “For sure, we will become master souls,” do you believe me? Why? It is pointless. Spirituality is experience. It is not a belief.
Once you reach that enlightenment, then you will know what comes next. If you give yourself the title of “master soul,” then you have reached your belief. Names, titles, getting a higher paycheck…:-) all part of our greed and ego.
5. “I have another question that can i settle my karmic debts in one lifetime or will i carry forward it into another life, how can i know that i have so much amount karmic debts please enlighten me on this topic.”
All you have now is your life. If you can discover your karmic accounts in this life (meaning your weaknesses) then there is no reason or motive to either go to the past or the future. If we want to do that trip to the future or past, we will be again in the realm of beliefs.
Do you believe in me? Why?
Thus, enlightenment on this topic means to observe what is going now in yourself and how you are resolving those issues. The rest are just beliefs.
Spirituality is the ultimate knowledge to get us to know that ultimate truth, that is ourselves.
Sharing of book and Question for June 10, 2013
http://lifesoperatingmanual.com/read-it-online/ Hey just started reading this book today. Just read a few pages till now but it resonates. Thought to share
Thanks for sharing it. Below is a link of that book which worked better for me. If someone does not have time and wants to get a feeling of the book, please read page 63 to 67.
Also, a link to a bio of the author, Tom Shadyac is added. He has been around in the world of the “rich and famous” and then decided to simplify his life…the spiritual bite.
Dear soul, How is it that us souls are programmed to forget our past lives after taking a new costume, however some souls are able to remember their past. How does that happen? Is there any explanation given in gyan regarding this? Or can you share your thoughts please? Many thnx
Thank you for your question!
To remember and to forget are part of the Drama of duality. “Actors” do it in a numberwise way (That is Gyan) that means that some will forget more and others will remember more.
Nevertheless, whether we remember or forget, we will bring with us our previous pearls and baggage as well.
Easy Raja Yoga Knowledge as 1-2-3-4
If you ever wanted to know how “life/Drama works” according to Raja Yoga gyan, in easy to understand steps; that you could communicate to anyone; here is the “churning” (realization) fresh from the “inner bakery” 🙂
Life, which is known as “Drama” is ONE (1.) That is all it has ever existed. There is nothing before it. It is eternal.
Life or the Drama is in continuous movement; that is matter and energy continuously transform. That perception of change, is what we call as “time.”
That change, that movement, experiences entropy. That means that it “degrades” in quality. It is “numberwise” and it is reflected by the souls arriving to the Drama of life at a certain point in time. This experience of “entropy” could be divided into “soul consciousness” and “body consciousness.”(2) Two.
Soul consciousness means non-duality (1)
Body consciousness is duality (2) Therefore, that is (3) Three in the Drama.
Finally, Soul consciousness has 2 seasons: Spring and Summer.
Body consciousness has 2 seasons as well: Fall and Winter.
Those (4) seasons make up the cycle of time; also known as Golden, Silver, Copper and Iron ages.
As we can see, the Drama is ONE.
The Drama is TWO
The Drama is THREE
The Drama is FOUR.
From ONE, it expands through entropy, (into 2,3, and 4) so it can collapse into ONE again.
From the seed it expands into a tree of many things to collapse into the seed again.
Therefore, to understand knowledge is to know the “seed” and its capacity to expand.
Now some Trivia: 🙂
The numerical progression on number of births according to Gyan.
Soul consciousness: 8+ 12 = 20 plus 1 at the “confluence age” when coming from body consciousness into soul consciousness; that is equal to 21.
Copper age number of births = to Golden age + Silver age+ Confluence age.
That is 21 births in the Copper age = to the same number of 21 births in soul consciousness.
Iron age is equal to twice as much as the Copper age (42) or twice as much as the Golden + Silver + Confluence age number of births.
That “one” birth is a transitional birth on the same physical body; thus we can also say that we can get as many as 83 different bodies in the cycle of time, but we can take as many as 84 births… 🙂

Question: As Shivbaba comes and goes from the Bramha baba’s body. Is Christ comes and goes from Jesus body and is it similar for other establisher for religions?
Thank you for your question!
According to Gyan, God is the only soul who can “come and go.” For the rest, once they enter the cycle of time they need to reincarnate and in the case of “religious founders,” those souls will receive their own body in the following birth.
