Swami's talk about freedom Swami Santhiprasad, Spiritual Yoga Master & Yoga Guru
You are born free - get rid of
dreams and enter into the reality!
January 27, 2007
Dear Yoga friends,
Today I would like to talk to you about the following question
asked to me:
Are we bound to feel lack of freedom and suffering? Why is it so?
According to the wisdom of the traditional Yoga teachings from our Great Spiritual Yoga Masters in India I would like to explain how this subject relate to Yoga and the Spiritual Yoga teachings at School of Santhi Yoga School in India.
People in some ways by their own desire for the results or fruits of their actions,
invites suffering where as the desire itself comes out in search of happiness.
According to the wisdom of the traditional yoga teachings from our great spiritual
masters in India I would like to explain how this subject relate to yoga and
our spiritual yoga teachings at the school.
There is always emptiness between
your thoughts. The pause between thoughts is self-contained. If one stays
there, for a little time, there will blossom peace and bliss.
Celebration and freedom are the culmination of this story. It is our essential
nature to be free and peaceful. While you are in the silence between thoughts
you are free from the operation of the mind. When all your fluctuations
of the mind cease, you are in freedom!
We continuously attempt to
make ourselves happy where as our original nature is happiness itself! By
this attempting to be happy, we go far away from our source, which is happiness
itself. In this attempt what we are looking will come and what we are not
looking, which is linked with what we are looking, will also follow. What we
are not looking is pain. Pain and pleasure are the two sides of the same
coin. Suffering will be followed by joy. Joy will be followed by pain.
When pain comes, it is terrible and you will forget the joy, which preceded the pain. It is
an impossibility to take away a part from the pain-pleasure continuum.
We constantly try to cut away a part and take the other part. In this process,
you enter into the other side of peace, which is restlessness. It is due
to sheer ignorance. The result is disappointment.
Disappointments are innate in attempting the impossible. In this process, you gain pain to a larger
extent, as you don’t feel the fulfillment of your dreams. However,
you are hypnotized by the hallucinating world. Everything that you have
done is stored in the mind and you know them with the conscious part of
the mind. It is also important to go to the unconscious side. The moment
you decide to go to the unconscious, you are inviting a great risk. You
can’t get into the unconscious with your conscious mind.
Entering into the unconscious
is not a tough program as you imagine. By watching the breath, you are entering
to the involuntary side which is close to the unconscious part, as breathing
is an unconscious activity, an involuntary one. The more you go along with
your breathing process, with your awareness, you open up the unconscious area
more and more. In this process, you may, go beyond breathe to the very depth
of your being. And there, you come in contact with the intelligence that governs
you. Intelligence abides in peace that you come in contact with peace! It happens
spontaneously. Unfortunately, we are so used to manipulate everything. The
result is simple missing of joy. If you are not manipulating, you will see
that everything is happening all the time spontaneously.
The moment when the
mind enters in the unconscious, there will only be an everlasting
surprise! The surprise of loosing the mind! You have lost everything.
All your life is for gaining and you become a sheer looser.
Loosing all your valuable dreams; loosing all your hopes. Loosing
all your aspirations! It is at the risk of your fantasies,
imaginations, illusions and dreams that you enter into the
unconscious which is unknown to the conscious mind.
a lot of strength. It needs courage. You don´t
know what is there in the unconscious. So far, you have not
lived your life. All that you were trying is to live your dreams.
When you decide to enter into the unconscious, you are planning
to go into a black hole. Your head starts to reel
out of fear when you think about it. You loose courage and
confidence. The entry to the unconscious is to the fearless!
The fearless one with vigilance and awareness will enter into
freedom and experience it.
You are born free! You
are not bound to suffer. Your very nature is happiness. Mind
is the barrier. When you get rid of your dreams, you will be
confident to enter into the reality, which is lead by intelligence.
This intelligence is there underneath the mind. Get rid of
all the complexities of the mind; be simple and intelligent
and there you are the instrument of the intelligence.
stay in intelligence
stays with ignorance.
intelligent and enjoy!
