EGO, GURU, GUIDE
EXCERPTS FROM “EGO, GURU, GUIDE,”

yaskii090900003
KUNDALINI QUARTERLY, SUMMER SOLSTICE 1976 BICENTENNIAL ISSUE

The purpose of life is not to find God. I don’t care if you beat me up, you will never convince me that we are here for that purpose. It is the biggest lie that people believe these days. Why do you want to find God? God has already found you. You are only here on this Earth to begin with because of Him. It is amazing what you sometimes let yourself believe. Even if you could find God, what would you do with Him? He is not a coconut that you can eat.

God is nothing but your own inner consciousness. Now I will agree with you that you cannot always feel God, but that is because you think that you are separate from God. We call it maya. Maya is the illusion of separateness; it is the quicksand of this life.

Whenever you forget that you have the capacity to be a god, then you become disconnected from God, and it is very lonely, and very painful. It is very unfortunate. You lose touch with your guide, and you sink back into the quicksand. Without the guidance, there can be no self-determination. Without self-determination, there can be no achievement. Without achievement, there can be no knowledge. Without knowledge, there can be no awareness. Without awareness, there can be no radiance. And without radiance, you might as well be an animal. An animal gets up from sleep, eats food, has sex, raises children, and does everything else that you do; but an animal has no mind to observe himself in action. That is the difference between an animal and a human being. Hu means light; man means mind. A human being is a being of mental light, a being of mind as well as body. But to experience yourself as a human being, you have to condition your mind to experience Infinity.

Life asks a question that must be answered. Life says to the ego, “You came with me into this life, but you cannot go with me into death. I must use you to help carry me across, but I cannot take you with me when I go.” This is the riddle of the ego that we are faced with. Life belongs to the land beyond; ego is given to you as a companion so that you can travel the road to the land beyond, but the ego cannot go with you. Nor can the ego direct your journey, because the ego does not know where you are going. The ego cannot know that you belong to the ethers, because the ego is not a product of the ethers; it is a product of this Earth. It is a friend and companion to be taken on the journey; it is not the driver of the car. But that does not mean that the backseat driver will not try to drive.

You must take control of this backseat driver and commit yourself to your destination. Without this commitment, life has no essence, life has no joy, nor can there be any achievement. If you are committed only to this Earth, ultimately you cannot enjoy your life, because your life must go beyond this Earth. You may achieve worldly success, but worldly achievement is only for this world. Only spiritual achievement will take you across this life into an experience of the limitlessness of your existence. The more you experience your soul, the more you can merge in that Universality from which you came. That is why you have a guru: so that you can know and experience your soul. It is the spirit of guidance that allows you to reach your destiny and become great.

You need this guru, this guide, not to possess you, but to guide you. You need this guide to appreciate you, to inspire you, and to correct you when you are wrong. The guru is like a compass: it will tell you where the North Pole is and where you are in relationship to it, but it will not take you there. It sets up a relationship between you and your infinite consciousness so that you can have that guidance to follow in your life.

The guru is like a pump that pumps air into a tire to make it useful. Once the job is done, the pump does not follow the tire down the road. But if the tire runs out of air again, the pump can be used again so that the tire can keep going. The guru is a gas station that fills you with spirit.

The guru should take away your doubt and darkness. He should rekindle your spirit, and redirect you towards your goal. He should remind you what reality is, and keep you going toward that reality. He should remind you of your energy, and remind you of your life so that you can mind your own business and keep going. This is the job of the guru, one who has the confirmed habit to speak the infinite truth in all circumstances.

guru
Because the guru cannot be measured, he opens you up and tests your very finite, measured ego against the measureless Infinity. It will freak you out, but it will keep you on the path of righteousness.

If God gives something to this Earth, He wants that same thing back. That is His nature. And the closest to God are those who can understand you for who you are and remind you of who you are whenever you forget.

The world is not a mystery, it is a joy to be experienced; but our ego won’t let us enjoy our visit to this Earth. The Infinite Self is given to us as a gift, but we don’t believe it. The moment you believe in the Self, that moment you are enlightened. When you experience the Self, then you know that you have to go, and you keep on going. Otherwise, you are stuck here. Liberation is not going to God’s kingdom from this Earth. There is no such kingdom to go to at all. The kingdom of God is right where you are now.

The guru is a guide that can take you from the darkness into the light. The guru is an ocean where you can totally merge yourself and come out washed and clean. The guru is a store of technical know-how where you can go and get taken care of so that you are fit again to take up the responsibility of this planet. The guru is the secret chamber of your inner self where you can confide your greatest secrets and be guided in the light of righteousness. Those who qualify according to these criteria are truly the blessed ones who have come to serve humanity and carry us through the times.

Meditation for the Arcline & to Clear the Karmas

清除的業力和Arcline的冥想

Mudra: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Relax the elbows down by the sides, and bring the forearms straight out in front of your body, palms flat and facing up. Have the palms slightly cupped, and place them a few inches above the knees.

Movement: Bring arms up, back behind head, stretching hands and arms as far back over shoulders as you can. Imagine you are scooping water, and throwing it through your arcline, over your shoulders, with a flick of the wrists. The movement is slow and smooth, and gracefully flows along with the lyrics and rhythm of the music.

Music: Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Jio by Giani Ji. On each “Wa-hay Guroo,” as well as on the “Wa-hay Jeeo,” do one complete round-scooping up, throwing over your shoulders, and come back to the starting position. Approximately 2 seconds per “scoop.”

Eyes: Closed.

Time: 31 minutes.

End: Inhale, and stretch your hands back as far as possible, hands right behind your head, Posture for the Inhale must be correct.

Hold: 10-15 seconds. Exhale. Repeat 3 times total. Relax.

Comments/Effects: This meditation is for the arcline and to clear the karma that has been stocked up in it. You’ll experience what Wahe Guru actually means. It’s just a hand of prayer. Remember, the power of Infinity is not outside of you-it is inside of you. When “I” and Infinity create impact, you’ll become totally divine. Otherwise there’s a duality which keeps you away from reality, and the pain is humongous.

清除的業力和Arcline的冥想

Mudra:伸直脊椎盤腿而坐(Easy Pose)。放鬆兩邊手肘,並把前臂伸直在身體前面,將手掌方平面向上。手掌呈輕微杯狀,並把它們放在膝蓋上幾英寸。

運動:雙手提起向胳膊後伸展跨過肩膀上,落於頭部後。想像一下,你在用勺舀水,把它扔過您arcline,跨過你的肩膀,輕彈手腕在頭部後將水潑掉。這動作是緩慢的,流暢的,就像優雅寫意的歌詞和節奏的音樂。

音樂:Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Jio by Giani Ji. On each “Wa-hay Guroo,” as well as on the “Wa-hay Jeeo,”,做一個完整雙手向後潑水的動作,然後回到原位。大約每2秒重複動作一次。

眼睛:合上。

時間:31分鐘。

結束:吸氣,並伸展您的雙手(越後越好),雙手你的腦袋後面,吸氣姿勢必須正確。

冥想最後部分保持不呼吸10-15秒。呼出。重複3次總。放鬆。

評論/效果:這清除的業力和Arcline的冥想的目的是為了清除貯存以久的業力。您會體驗到Wahe Guru的真正意義。這只是一個手的祈禱。記住,無限的能力不在您之外而在您之內,無限是你身體的一部分。當“我”和Infinity產生影響,您將成為完全的神。否則,二元性會使你遠離現實,痛苦是巨大無比的。

Meditation for a Neutral Mind

It is easy to hear a truth and difficult to live it, to embed it deeply into your heart and mind. The Neutral Mind opens the gate to that deep remembrance of the self and soul. Jappa done with the refined Neutral Mind leads to Naam chit aveh. The Neutral Mind lives for the touch of vastness. It lets all other thoughts be without disturbance in your constant inner light.

Sit in easy pose with the spine straight. Put both hands in the lap with the palms facing up. Rest the right hand into the left. The thumb tips may touch or not. Remove all tension from every part of the body. Sit straight by achieving a balance. Close the eyes. Imagine seeing yourself sitting peacefully and full of radiance. Then gradually let your energy collect like a flow at the brow point. Let the breath regulate itself into a meditative slow, almost suspended, manner. Concentrate without effort at that point and mentally vibrate in a simple monotone, as if chopping the sound, projecting each syllable distinctly:

Wha-hay gu-roo
Infinity identity from darkness to light.
Call on the higher self and keep going steadily through all barriers.
Let go and let God.
Practice this meditation for 11 to 31 minutes at a session
