SAND 2012 Presentation by Mystic Birinder
On October 26th, 2012 Mystic Birinder presented at the Science and NonDuality conference held in San Rafael, California, USA. This conference brings together leading speakers from scientific disciplines, philosophy, and spirituality.
Is your life complete? Do you live with abandonment or suppression? Do you have courage to define your Self no matter the consequence? Do you have strength to bleed for your heart’s choice? Answer these questions and you open the door to a life worth living.
The Truth that you experience through life will sink in deep, as against a Truth that was preached to you, or you read from books. There will be no doubt left. Such a Truth will revive clarity and courage. It takes courage to truly live life, the courage to be honest, the courage to face your reality and your own urges. This deshackles the heart. This is true healing. Don’t attempt to build a tall building when the foundation is not there yet. The earlier you come to know this is lacking, the good work can begin. Deal with the heart first, so that the heart finds its courage. That is what it is to become your SELF. Don’t stop loving a thing because of a value or a morality because something superior is waiting. There is nothing superior waiting. There is nothing superior to what your heart loves. Creation knows best what you need to experience. When your heart loves, you feel. A felt Reality is real, not conjure of the mind. When you feel, you express from a place that is palpable. It is factual. It is tangible to others. When you express your pain or your joy, people will feel it too. This is how healing begins. And it heals others too. It is a very good place to begin.
You become a good player of a game if you love the game more than winning. If you cannot find Joy at the stage of Seeking, if you don’t enjoy it totally, it won’t work. You don’t have to surrender with a heavy heart. Surrender is the most natural thing that happens when you love something.
Begin from loving yourself. This is the best start point. If you cannot love your Self you can never love the Supreme Being.
Life is not possible without at least one love. Every human being loves something. You’ll be disinterested in life if you can’t feel what you love. Some people love money, some love the subjects they study, players love the sport they play. Be clear about your love and you will draw energy from Creation to materialize and experience your desire. People who are unclear about their love are forced to gather energy from here and there; things like relationships and food. Energy directly from the Source is not dependent upon anything else. If you are very clear about what you love, the grace of Creation will yield a tremendous flow. If you are a little clear, you will only receive a trickle. The ultimate flow of energy is when you love the very Source, the Supreme Being. Floodgates open and everything starts moving in your direction. Love is the ultimate power. It draws what you seek and makes every moment more contented. Contentment gives silence. When the mind becomes silent, only then can Truth be felt and awakened to.
We want fear and doubt to end
We want clarity and understanding
We want certainty in life
We want lasting happiness
Seeking Truth will connect us with the Supreme reality which is the True source. Knowing truth will free wisdom. Wisdom will then arise like sap in a tree because our roots are in reality.
How to Seek Truth: Do not lose the purpose of this life. You have been given a certain script by Creation. You came here for a purpose.To feel the purpose, go inward, find your heart. What is a circle without a center? Know the center first. The heart is the center, so come in first, come into yourself, turn your eyes inward. When the eyes turn inward, it becomes contemplation.
Where to Seek Truth: Our minds have drifted too far from our heart. The mind, by nature, is fearful and it’s faculty of understanding is analysis, which is divisive. It is the heart which will lead us to Truth. The heart will answer who we are, why we are here and what is our purpose.
Review your life and see if happiness and clarity are increasing and fear and doubt are lessening. If it is, you are in a healthy process. If not, your process is not answering your Self purpose. In that case, transform your process into a coherent form to get results by working with a teacher or guide who has experienced the path completely.
He said, “I have heard about you. You are a very great Teacher. I have traveled a long distance.”
In those days people had to walk a lot and there were not many roads. He was in a forest at that time. He had traveled a long distance to come to this Teacher.
He said, “I have heard about you. So many people have praised you, so I have come. Can you give me the assurance I will find my Truth?”
My Master said, “I cannot. How can I? And how do you know that I am a Master? Even that assurance I cannot give you. Feel your heart. Accept studentship if you want. You might reach, you might not reach. This danger will be there.”
So what was the Teacher teaching him in that moment? Acceptance. Unconditional acceptance. People sometimes travel long distances even today. They first read about a Teacher; that this teacher is enlightened, and a very good teacher, but these are concepts. What can you see in anyone until you experience reality by being with someone over a long period of time? And then how do you know if things are not happening whether you are blocking it, or that the teacher is not good? How would you know? The spiritual process begins upfront from acceptance. This word should always be uppermost in your mind. There is no surety of anything. If you want surety, certainty, remain in bondage. A prison is very certain.
The key is to relate with everything through Love. Even when I was in R & D and working in fields like robotics; when I was handling anything, I would not understand anything without going into complete oneness with it. This is integrating with Creation and this is flowing toward the Ultimate Reality. This itself is spirituality; this is the spirituality of Oneness. It is not understanding or reasoning anything or reading books or trying to accept what you do not understand. Begin through the process of living. The best way toward your reality is living in a gradually opening up reality. So I always explain it this way: your mind should become open. An open mind is like a vessel. It can receive. Creation also constantly pours into it. All our knowledge, you see all the scientists, you see Einstein, you see Newton, you see anyone, all inventions, even relativity, came to Einstein through intuition. He didn’t experiment in any lab. They were aware of this, they became aware of this because their questions led them that far. They related to life that deeply. You can try it in anything in your life. Relate through Love, relate through openness, there is no conflict between science and what I’m talking about. You have to integrate everything, all the knowledge you have. Every resource you have. We are going toward completeness.
Experience of the Supreme Being is impossible without total surrender. Surrender is impossible without total Faith. The Self will continue to seek knowledge as long as doubt persists. The Self has become trapped in a maze. Knowledge, first expands the mind then confuses it. The world has entered the stage of confusion and disorder, knowledge has become excessive and a barrier to Reality.
The word purpose is very important. Purpose. There is no more important word in Creation. This word gives us our core question: Who am I? This should remain the core question until you answer it for yourself. No one else can answer it for you. This answer cannot be intellectual. It cannot be read from a book. This can’t even be answered for you by a Master. You have to experience the answer to this question. This question is so significant because it is the question which began Creation. This is the question which arose in the Divine mind. It only became an individual question when it split. Each one of us is carrying this question. This question becomes active when you become a seeker. A True seeker. Why do I use the objective True? True seeker means when seeking the answer to this question becomes the sole purpose of your life.
