This is an ecstatic Satsang. You can feel the white/blue light, bliss, and ecstatic power that gripped the Sangha throughout.

Just sit in a quiet place, relax as deep as you can, and feel the flow of truth that can catch you on fire if you relax and breathe it in.

The I Am Brahman State, Nisargadatta, and Power



Both Nisargadatta and Robert Adams spoke about the oneness state where the sense of I Am identifies with the totality of experience. The little you is gone, replaced by the life force, beingness as the I Am, and the experience of God. My experience, during salient intervals past the original awakening to the I Am Everything state, was the experience of brilliant light and the immense power of God within and everywhere. All this flows from the story of the oneness of the Manifest Self, God, and the world: the I Am Brahman concept. LINK: https://youtu.be/QeUmu-0ajpY

 Nisargadatta begiles you with a created story about epistemology, who you know and how. Robert Adams and Ramana rely more on stories about what is, and how the universe works, such as the idea everything is predetermined, the world is illusory, and everything is unfolding as it should. If believed, you just give everything up, because you can't do anything to affect the world or even your life. That relaxation and emptiness begets spiritual states that take you close to enlightenment.

 BEYOND SUFFERING TO NIRVANA


For ten years I have taught God-Realization that ended suffering and yielded joy and bliss and provided direct access to the life force. Now it is time to teach about the final step the Absolute, thw non-existent Before-Consciousness state.

The body and Consciousness are shows, entertainment; the Absolute observes all that but is not of it, and as such is beyond space, time, and death

23 August 2020

 WITH THIS SATSANG, EVERYTHING CHANGES!

GOING BEYOND GOD-REALIZATION AND THE DIVINE;

FINDING YOU BEYOND EXISTENCE AND LIFE ITSELF!

 To me today on Messenger:


"I feel I’m not in charge anymore
It’s like I don’t want to be.
It’s Total surrendering
Understanding very little.
Everything just goes on within me.
This joy , It’s an inherent inner aliveness
It’s all inherently sacred and so deeply satisfying
Everything is AFIRE with God divine"

"Ed
Please have faith in me !
And love me
And feel me
When I tell you
That you are
Love

"YOU ARE LOVE
I FEEL THAT

"I don’t think that
I FEEL IT IN MY BODY AND SPIRIT
My mind has shattered
And all I am is LOVE
That recognizes
LOVE"


Today was different at Satsang. Love exploded everywhere. The whole Sangha is transitioning now into the divine.

FURTHER POINTERS FROM NISARGADATTA WITH CONTEXT


I have studied Nisargadatta since 1986. I was fortunate enough to meet Jean Dunn in 1987 as well as Ramesh Balsekar about the same time I met Robert Adams in 1989, and more or les laid Maharaj aside for the next seven years. I and many of Robert's students would ask him his opinions of Maharaj or his teachings. Robert did not care for Nisargadatta because "He was too rude." Robert said he used to torture Ramesh unmercefully during the time Robert was with Ramana.
In the late 1990s I began a deeper study of Maharaj depending more on Robert Powell's books that were far clearer and much more detailed tha Jean Dunn's. I began to really understand Nisargada, But also recognized that Maharaj was frequenly inconsistent and he also interlaced his talks with unending references to various hindu ontology concepts that distracted rather than clarified.
He made himself hard to undertand by being sloppy in his talks especially when he was speaking of issues that he considered the highest or final teachings. This study lasted for 15 years until I had an entirely new enlightenment experience entirely outside of the Advaita or any non-dual teaching.
This awakening event entirely eclipsed my many experiences with Robert and Jean. I experienced both realization of the Manifest Self and of God at the same time. I entered the divine, the kingdom of God and was brought alive into the Manifest Self of awareness of the life force within.
Yes, Nisargdatta spoke about the life force and also beingness, but in an abstract way with the usual distracting stories or terms he often used. I was never able to "feel" that Maharaj actually experienced that which he wrote about, and instead quickly transitioned to discussing the witness and nothingness instead, the experience of which was supposedly entirely outside of consciousness. Therefore his freuent discussions of this subject were often most confusing.
The early Nisargadatta, the one who wrote Self-Knowledge and Self-Realization, was a Bhakta, a lover, a devotee who spoke of God, saints, devotion, and chanting. None of this Bhakta remains evident in his last teachings between 1979 and 1982. His Witness concept and experience had totally swallowed the loving Nisargadatta. It should not have.
It is this world of light, love, energy, and the divine I awakened to in 2010. It is from this possition I discuss the spiritual developmental steps that are often almost hidden in his eachings, but also add a step Maharaj did not take: joyfully returning to the marketplace. This marketplace is the mundane world I left after I enetered the divine, God, Manifest Self. That is, rather than resting in the Witness, I reentered my human self, consciousness itself, and played there, exploring beingness, the underlying life force, feltandplayed with spiritual energies which I called the Voice of God. Robert sometimes had praised me because in the 90s, I never experienced or spoke of them.
I will speak of these later, but in this essay I wanted to clarify the existential spiritual developmental steps he seemed to speak about in his own chaotic way, and speak of them based on my many years of study.
-----------------------------------
Step one:
Watch the body closely. Scan the body frequently, running the attention from toes to scalp over and over many times a day. One needs to know their body as perceive by consciousness, and not as learned knowledge from books, teachers, or previous experience.
Step two:
Realize that You, whatever that is, are definitely not the body. Your body is something perceived by you. It is an object, not part of the subject.
Step three:
Realize that you, from your present state of knowledge, are spirit, that which Ramana Maharishi also called the self, which he was always aware of. From Ramana's level of understanding, you are pure spirit, awareness, that which apprehends the body and the world.
Step four:
Stay here for a time, constantly aware of the body in the world, and that spirit is that awareness. With Constant observation, you realize you are are a "spiritual" entity within the body feeling the totality.
Step five:
The fundamental state of the human spiritual being is called beingness, a state of silence, joy, bliss, and sheer happiness. Just rest in this beingness as your resting state. Accept it as your base world. You are now far from the mistaken knowledge that you are your body. Now unhappiness rarely touches you. You have found the divine, which is separate from the mundane world, and in a sense, you live above the mundane world and the body. You knowboth but choose the divine, because there you are happy.
Step six:
Constantly be aware of your beingness by resting there and making it very, very familiar. At this point will begin to realize you are not the divine, are not beingness, happiness, or bliss. You are beyond all of these as the Witness.
Step seven:
In a deep sense you will realize that you can only be It, the Witness, you cannot be aware of that which witnesses everything else. It is altogether beyond the mundane, and also beyond divine, spiritual. It is altogether beyond existence. It is this incomplete understanding that makes you think the Witness is immortal, but immortal relates to a quality of entities within the mundane.
Step eight:
When this is fully realized, and you own the knowledge that you are not of this world, not of consciousness, really not of awareness, you realize you are from "nothingness"anotheresoteric term that make you think it is real because you named it.
Now you realize the uselessness and imaginary nature of all knowledge, from physics and chemistry, to all knowledge we have of ourselves and others. We rest in not knowing, emptiness, being truly stupid.
Step nine:
After resting in this knowledge of no knowledge for some time, you will probably find you are bored and that your practice is very dry. So at some point, you return your attention back to consciousness, to beingness, to energies, to bliss, and beingness is your basic state, your resting state. This point, you will realize you have escaped from nothingness, and you could totally throw yourself into life, playing inside of consciousness as your own play yard. This point is never made clear by Nisargadatta, it brings us back to the marketplace where we live life in the combination of mundane and divine, fully involved in life, getting to know the life force which permeates your own beingness. For all intents and purposes, this is your manifest self as opposed to the transcendent witness, which is beyond life and death. This is the experience of Self spoken about in the Ashtavakra Gita, which is not Nisargadatta's world, or the world of Robert Adams.

What is self and self-realization?

Such a deep question, but the answer is really simple. The answer comes in less than 10 seconds to someone who really understands they are not their bodies. They, and you, are the spirit, the awareness and consciousness that the body supports.

The body may be the creator of you, but you are not your body. You are both the awareness within, and the consciousness, the phenomenal world and inner world that it creates. You are that consciousness.

To know your self and to rest in your self, you have to reenter your body as its owner and only resident. That is self; awareness of one's inner spirit and feeling the total nature that awareness of your body reveals.

Don't worry about mind. Let it think and daydream. Forget attempts to control it. Instead, turn your attention inwards. Feel your heart area. Feel your feet, ankles, legs and pelvis. Feel how your consciousness feels. Then just rest their and realize that is your self, that which you call I Am experience. Rest in this experience and knowledge. Feel the peace ce that brings.

Then, turn your attention to others. Find someone to love. Open fully, love fully, surrender fully. Then explode in love. Love another more than you love your self. This allows you become totally aware of and become love itself. This will unleash spiritual energy that brings both self and God-realization..

That is it! No use to plunge into the depths of the emptiness found within; that is just part of you, not the origin of consciousness or self. Scan your body frequently. Know your home. Love deeply and frequently.

Sunday Satsang Attendee Breakthrough


I’m writing this because I want to share what I felt on Sunday at sangha and what Is still being felt today.

Words for me get in the way. I close my eyes and just allow to feel . Hearing was heard Sunday. It polished and burned away Mary for what felt like eternity.

It polished her to brilliance ! Radiant brilliance ! The person burned away, and all that remained was a Vast, spacious emptiness and a blazing white light center Illuminating all . I was the essential essence of everything. The heart of it all. A language beyond words. I was resting in the bliss of boundlessness. I was seated in the seat of supreme wisdom.

The upsurge of ecstasy was like a crack of lightening in the dark. I was that . A power that burst forth..energy , ecstasy, eternity. Freedom . Every sound a melody of mantra, every sight a vision, every sensation the sweet touch of the beloved . Enjoyer of every sight and sound. Mary was forgotten dreaming a dream of dreaming .

Words are bondage . Knowledge is bondage, concepts is bondage.

I will leave it here for now...knowing that with every breathe “I “ dissolves.

Such joy, peace, and bliss

it is ! Pleasure and presence in a dance . Beloved shiva and Shakti

-----------------------
Thisisreally a powerfulawakening experience combining the realization of No-I and Emptiness, with the bliss and light of realizing the Manifest Self.

MY  RESPONSE TO STEVEN STROUTH'S ATTCKS ON ROBERT ADAMS

About a dozen of Robert's students had read Strouth's writing and contacted me for my undertnding and experience of Robert and his authenticity. I wrote this and added a verbal rejoinder here to answer all who want to kinow if Strouth was accurate. I posted this to answer any who ask.

An article is circulating on the Internet  in the form of an apparent dialogue between an unnamed questioner and Steven Strouth. I assume the purported questioner is really Steven, not an independent third-party.
He claims he met Robert in 1985, four years before I met Robert. I never met Steven I myself at any Satsang or get together with Robert between 1989 in 1997. 

My first question is, why did Strouth wait 35 years to bring this up? Strouth claims that he never thought of Robert as his group or teacher. What is his point? What does he want in making his claim?

Strouth stated that Robert claimed that Robert told him that he lived with Arthur Osborne near Ramana ashram, and that Arthur gave Robert a car to tour India as well as money.

Robert ever told me this. I have no idea if it's true or not. Robert did state to me that Osborne give him some money to travel around India, but never mentioned he lived with him or you received a car from him. Strouth quoted a letter from Osborne's daughter that she never met Robert and her father never gave Robert a car. I don't know whether this is true or not even. Seems to be a question of he said she said it many ways, including whether Robert ever made such a claim.

Most importantly, Strouth claims Robert was never a guru  or teacher for him, yet implies he had a very close relationship with Robert for a period of time.

It's quite clear to me, that Strouth's knowledge of who Robert was, was very shallow. The Robert Strouth spoke about, certainly was not the Robert I knew. As a devotee of Robert, I saw his actions in entirely different light from the mundane level criticisms by Strouth. Everything Strouth says about Robert indicates an extreme bias against a spiritual point of view. I see everything that Robert did differently from the way Strouth saw his actions.

In the link below is a very short video presentation how I saw Robert, with a critique of Strouth's point of view.

Mind creates a symbolic world of meaning and utility out of an ever changing flux of experience. Most of us live in this consensual world of mundanity and limitations. Spirituality is all about seeing and feeling through the mind to the real real basic beingness wherein happiness and joy reside permanently. Ed takes attendees to there.

WHY I DON'T WRITE ANYMORE.

Maybe you have noticed, but I do not write anymore. I used to write to create a mood or feeling. I used to talk about the life force, God, or self, to motivate people to look into themselves and maybe find something new within. But I can't do that anymore because when I look within there is no God, no self, no life force to be found; there is only happiness, joy, emptiness filled with freedom from any kind of suffering.

That's all I am able to write about now, is happiness, this joy within and and without, everywhere. I am in complete peace. Joy is something like a dark and comforting liquid inside and outside, permeating everywhere and everything with happiness, like a comforting blanket. There is total emptiness inside and all pervasive peace, joy, and happiness. Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. Nothing to find. Nothing to be done. Nothing to be gotten rid of. I rest myself. Complete. At peace.

Nor can I convey this peace to you directly, for this peace is not of this world. There is nothing like it in the mundane world of men. There is nothing I can say to give it to you. I can only say that such a thing exists.

TRANSCENDING YOUR MIND

YOU DO NOT BEGIN A SPIRITUAL PATH UNTILYOU HAVE ALREADY TRANSCENDED YOUR MIND. SECONDLY THE NEXT GREATEST STEP IS TO TRANSCEND THE THOUGHT THAT YOU ARE A BODY.

YOUR MIND IS ILLUSORY. IT IS A NOISE GENERATOR THAT CREATES A PRISON OF A MUNDANE WORLD.

Precision in the Application of Therapies and Spirituality

90% of spiritual seekers are searching and practicing mistakenly, to solve developmental failures and resolve trauma. Meditation, self-inquiry, devotion, and studying Nisargadatta will not resolve an additction, major depression, borderline or narcisistic problems, and most everyone has some.

Spirituality has to do with obserrving and understanding, as well as controlling consciousness, from the coming and goings of the waking, sleep, and dream states, as well as God realization, Christ consciousness, and emptiness as content of the waking state.  You learn everythonmg about consciousness, the states, impermanence, and how to stay in God consciousness or to consciously pass into Nothingness and the witness.

It not for emotional or behavioral problems embedded in the waking state and  tensions in the body. It is not for relational problems.  If your problem is alcoholism or severe depression, you need anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, individual and group psychotherapy, relaxation exercizes and therapies emphasizing freeing feeling in the body.

Two exception from this principle is that energy work, Shakti, Kundaleni, Tantra, and devotion can be used to access great energy and power that can assist in healing depression and even addictions.  Also, Tantrics use emotion to create energies and integrate them into the sense of presence by a process I call eating emotions.

                        THE PORTAL

Deep inside each of us lies a portal, a doorway between existence and nonexistence, between experience and nothingness.

The experiential world as well as all of the categories of experience we call the self lie on the existential side of the portal. Some have called the various levels of existential self, the Self, distinguished from the world. Others claim that all levels of experience are the one self. Opposing this experiential side of life is the posited opposite of nonexistence otherwise known as the noumenal world, nothingness, the absolute, or the witness.

Through intense spiritual practices over many years such as self-inquiry, love and devotion, we can experience all levels of human and non-human, divine self, before encountering the portal. Instead of "levels of self" or "self experience," I refer to the different kinds of spiritual experiences encountered on the way through the depths of experience, as rooms within our inner spiritual mention, all of which have to be observed, identified with, and then discarded. We have to, for example, entered the room of emptiness a.k.a., the Void, identify with void, and then come to the recognition that the void is really not me.

This we have to do with all the rooms in that spiritual mansion, the room of emptiness, the rooms of joy and sorrow, anger and redemption, grace and condemnation, and salvation, the rooms of love, devotion, surrender, and finally of God realization and self-realization.

Here we have reached what appears to be full realization of the totality of life and death, existence and nonexistence, wherein God as the life force itself, sentience, is aware of itself and all of its aspects experiential and noumenal. We are completely at rest experiencing the constant underlying experience of ourselves as the manifest Self, and as God, as well as nothingness.

Once all of these experiences have been deeply experienced, added to our sense of self, we release ourself from that identification and are free to penetrate deeper levels. Depending upon where we start our spiritual journey, either with the discovery of the vast emptiness within, or with our discovery of God and the manifest self within, there comes a time when we exhaust the inner search and  come face-to-face with the portal, the entrance to the absolute nonexistence, which could be called deep self, or when absorbed within, in complete rest as nothingness and eternity.

It is often said self cannot be found or observed by the self. This is both true and untrue. From the existential side of the portal, we are looking into the dark emptiness below that seems to be seething with activity, and we feel a powerful  force pulling us toward the other side into our deeper self, addressing from objectivity to subjectivity. But peering into the portal from the existential side we are really looking for activities and powers instead of objects. We are looking into verbs, not nouns. We are looking into our ability to hear, see, smell, taste, touch, move, think, judge, surrender or exert will. What we "see," really intuit, are vast amounts unseen energies and powers that trickle up to the portal's surface of visibility, beckoning us to pass inside to the eternal.

How Childhood Lonliness and Depression Informed My Spiritual Destiny

Some have called this my most powerful Satsang ever,with great  openenss and vulnerability.  I speak of my almost suicidal loneliness as a child worsened  by a crushing fear of death and disaster after the sudden death of my father when I was 14.  These and other circumstances directed my spiritua lpath, each step similtaneously dealing with my human issues, as well as informing my spiritual eperiences, training, and understanding.

One need not be totally healed on an emotional level before benefitting  from spirituality, nor will spirituality heal depression and fear.  Both operate interdependently.

We becaome Buddhists or Advaitins when running away from emotioal disturbances embracing noself, emptiness, and nothingness, and we becomes Tantrics and humanists when we embrace them. But Tantra and energyspirituality more easily aids emotional maturation.

THE ARC OF BRAHMAN,
FROM EMPTINESS
TO GOD-REALIZATION.

Spirituality becomes less confusing when you understand that there is an evolution of spiritual experience and understanding.

Stage one is finding the Void, Emptiness, and going deeper, Nothingness. Then from the purity of unbroken silence emerges a movement of love, devotion, and surrender culminating in God and Self-Realization, bliss and ecstatic states, and unending joy. Here the person leaves the mundane world of unenelightened society, and lives in a new world of continuous joy and continuous change.Nothing lasts, all is good.

From this latter state, further experiences and more advanced understandings about consciousnessness, the life force, Shakti and the brief realityof all changing experiences.You realize your fundamental identity is not being a human at all, but being an avatar with your divine life unfolding withinmnefest existence.

Most of the great spiritual teachers of history fall within this traditional arc of spirituality.

But there are small numbers of people whom who fall outside this track altogether. They may have no common spiritual beliefs, but are instead what we regard as "good people." Some make such an impression on us that even a chance meeting with one such as these is remembered 50 or 60 years later as having been a life changing experience. One sch person for me was the psychologist, Carl Rogers who I met in 1981.To me, his life force, permeated and dominated an entire room of 30 psychologists, some of whom felt the urge to express devotion and felt a desire to surrender.

These outliers may show us the way to a new spirituality of being comfortable with one's own self and everyday with with the experience of samadhis, bliss, cosmc consciousness, etc..

EMAIL TOME FROM STUDENT WHO SPEAKS ABOUT SAMNESS OF SUROBINDO AND MY TEACHINGS

Hi Ed,

recently I found interesting read about Sri Aurobindo and felt like similar to what you said about your realizations.

Quote from his bookt:

"Sri Aurobindo's yoga and spiritual philosophy are founded on four great realizations. The first, the realisation of the silent, spaceless and timelesss Brahman, he had realized while meditating with Lele in 1908. The feeling and perception of the total unreality of the world which at first attended this realization disappeared after the second realization, which was gained in the Alipur jail, the realization of the cosmic consciousness and the vision of the Divine, as all beings and as all that is.

In his meditations in the jail Sri Aurobindo was already on his way to the other two realizations- that of the supreme Reality with the static and dynamic Brahman as its two aspects and that of the higher planes of consciousness leading to the Supermind."

I attach the whole text page at the bottom.

What I personaly find interesting with Sri Aurobindo is that He didn't teach in the old style of Vedas or Indian philosophy, although He didn't reject old teachings neither. He just never was in favour of statements like: " the world and you don't exist" or "the world is an illusion"...... So I feel there is much similarity with what you say on Satsangs about realizing emptines, God realization and His life force in everything, including ourselves.

Anyway, Am happy to share this with you.

Much Thanks to you!

WAS ROBERT ADAMS A FRAUD?

There are a few people on Facebook and elsewhere, that claim Robert Adams was a fraud, that he never met Ramana because there is no record of him ever being there, and no one present during the late 40s can remember him.

My response is that there is very little proof that Robert ever existed in life at all until he suddenly broke on the scene in Los Angeles in 1989. But this is the Robert I knew. He was very humble. Very quiet and self-effacing. He rarely spoke. If you entered a room with a dozen people, you may not even have noticed him.

Robert shunned attention in the spotlight. He was constantly deliberately losing students. He did things that ruffled their feathers and they left. His stated goal was to have 10 students in his life that got his message and could spread his message. 10 students who got enlightened and became teachers themselves. He was not interested in large numbers of people. He did not want to have an ashram. He told stories about leaving behind an ashram he created in New Mexico. He shunned Muktananda's invitation to become a swami.

He was shy and retiring. And I'll bet even in 1948 he was not an extrovert. He was not a people person. He did not live in the ashram, but around it. And when he told stories about his time in Ramana's ashram and with Ramana they were told with such detail and conviction I felt no doubt that he was telling the truth, especially about the time when he met Ramana on apath, took off all of his clothes. and prostrated himself before Romana. When he told that story, his eyes were filled with tears. He ended it by saying this is how you have to be with your teacher: humble, devoted, surrender,and he saidit almost shouting it as an essential truth.

Some even doubt Robert's stated awakening experience, saying it was only a mystical experience. That same person claimed that enlightened beings stop searching when they become enlightened, forgetting classically that there are many stages after awakening before approaching 'final enlightenment'. 

Classically the Zen oxherding figures come to mind, 10 stages post awakening before your training is complete. The great Zen Master Joshu stated he had 17 great Satori and thousands of small ones. His Zen training took place over a period of 60 years before he finally settled as a teacher.

If I were asked if I remembered the many people that had came and gone at the international Buddhist meditation center in the early 1970s where I was a month for three years, I can't say that I remember any but a small number of people. People looking for evidence that Robert was at Ramana ashram in 1948 or 1949 50 years later would be hard to prove or find acceptible proof of his presence.  This is more or less what I would expect.

Remember, Robert was like a ghost in his entire life. He left no footprint, and less than a dozen photos.
