Dear Yoga friends,
and listen to the sound of your breath!
Why should you try
to become somebody else? Why not be your self? Why should you try to become
Buddha? Certainly, it is not good to become Buddha. It might certainly be good
to be yourself, however great the other ideal is. Ideals are dreams. It has
nothing to do with reality. To be like Jesus is not good for you. It is certainly
I am is the only reality!
Your wish to be like somebody else is the problem. You cannot be like Mahavira, you cannot be like Buddha, you cannot be like Jesus, and you cannot be like Mohammed the prophet. You cannot
be like me. I cannot be like you. "I am" is the only reality. When you realize
this, your breath is settled. In other words, when your breath is settled it will be easier for you to realize this great truth.
To become somebody else when you are in your body, is impossible. Why do we attempt to achieve the
impossible, when the possible is always at hand? To be as you are, is the
great possible reality, the only possibility. We ignore this great possibility
and try to be something else. Are we not attempting the impossibility in
the name of freedom, in the name of emancipation, in the name of realization?
If we continue this way our life breath will completely be shattered. There will be cyclones and hurricanes in our breath. This is what happens in the life of many. All these turbulences
are arising from the core point, which is to pretend, to become somebody
These ignorant paths were
supported by the parents and by the society all along. Charlatan masters
support the same. It is so important for an individual to open his eyes
and see realistically to come out of this falsity.
To become aware of - remain simply as you are!
The starting point of transformation is
" to become aware of "
" remaining simply as you are "
When you start to see your breath, mind
and your being, you will inevitably understand everything about yourself. There
are no other secrets. Everything is so evident for you, as you are living your
In Swara Yoga the Master speaks through Lord Siva, that whoever listens to the sound of ones own breathe will never be born again! When you keep a constant vigilance
on your breath, you will see everything, which is happening
in your system in its subtleties, as the unconscious side
of your existence slowly, starts to unravel to the conscious.
This is nothing extra ordinary. Everything in nature is ordinary. Whatever you have done is very
ordinary. During this process, you will become aware of all the
normal and ordinary things you have done in your life.
All the attempts to make ordinary and normal things to
extraordinary and supernormal will slowly starts to shed off.
The heaviness of breath changes sporadically.
It becomes so light and pleasant! Moreover, you will come
back to the essential breath. You live your life in this
way, doing everything, which is inspired spontaneously
from within, till you breathe your last! You have lived
your life so intelligently without making it complicated
that you will feel a natural completion of it when the
life breath flows out of you saying goodbye.
When you are in close contact with your life force you will see every subtle vibration
the breathe makes when it is within you. The one who makes this system flowing,
will see the passage and its further transformations when the breathe goes
outside. Who is the one who is seeing here? Who is the one who is doing?
Is their any difference between the seer and the doer?
Witnessing is not a difficult task. It is the simplest
thing ingrained in the human system. It is happening all
the time. Whatever we do, we inevitably see. No one can
avoid seeing it. One can pretend that he is not seeing.
If you become aware of it, you will start to feel freedom.
That is why it is said by the wise that you are
born with freedom. Freedom is your birthright. What a
paradox it is, that one who is born with freedom is searching
for freedom! So far, we are searching, we will never find
out. You can look for some more years or lives as you feel.
there will come a day
when you will stop seeking for it. When you stop seeking,
you will realize
