The Master's Words...
"Discover that you are bliss! We are by nature blissful Beings! Our thoughts are mere bubbles that rise and fall at random without a linear relation between them. But we continuously link our thoughts to form a shaft of pain or pleasure. This process is the root cause for all our suffering. If we can un-clutch ourselves from forming this shaft and allow the bubbles of thoughts to naturally rise and fall, we will discover that our suffering is purely our own making, and our true nature is pure bliss!"
Nithyanandaji addresses gatherings world over offering better understanding and life solutions to the problems of young and old alike. He also gives live interviews over radio and television worldwide, answering questions and giving instant clarity to people from all walks of life.
He says, "Intellectual understanding along with meditation can spur you on to the super highways of integrated science. Man has to embark upon a journey inwards in order to understand the miracle - that is the phenomenon of the body, mind and spirit."
Be un-clutched, be blissful!
Your entire belief in rationality and logic is based on the premise that your thinking is sequential and it follows a pattern. This is a lie.
Buddhists say mind is a monkey. That's very true. Your thoughts are not sequential. Your thoughts are independent of each other. They are not connected. They are illogical and irrational. They are like the bubbles in a fish tank which appear connected; but there is no connection between one bubble and another. They are all independent.
Just try this. For a few minutes, truthfully, write down all your thoughts as they occur to you. When you read what you have written again, it will appear to you that what you have written is a madman's diary. Nothing will be connected, nothing will seem logical. You would have jumped from past to present, from future to past, all with no logical connection whatsoever.
It is only when you link thoughts to one another, when you try and provide a logical and rational sequence to thoughts with the help of your mind, you invite suffering. The pleasurable experiences or painful experiences that you have 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 2 years ago and yesterday and today are all independent of each other. They are unconnected. Yet you try and fit them in a pattern and then expect that pattern to repeat. This expectation leads to disappointment and all suffering.
Each thought that you have comes after another only when you have renounced the first one. Unless you renounce the thought of sitting, you cannot stand up. Unless you renounce the thought of standing, you cannot walk. This tendency to link thoughts and form a pattern is what creates your value systems and beliefs, your samskaras, the root cause of all your problems.
It is this pattern woven by the mind and not the ground reality that you experience, which drives your life. Connected thoughts are the foundation of all illusions and suffering. Once you drop the connection between thoughts, you can go to the source of thoughts, the truth of who you are, where you come from.
When you drop the connection between thoughts, you will then realize the futility of that connection except in causing you suffering. When you realize that thoughts arise in you at random and not in any sequence and are always unconnected, you then drop into the present. You become unclutched, you become free. You then regain your Self.
