Grief is an inescapable human experience. Just like death.  

I’m of the mind that we have the emotional experience of grief because it allows for so much to be able to happen. It is…it can be, that transformative portal. But not when we handle it too much…We have to give it space. I’ve seen that move in lots of different ways.  

IF we just allow for that energy to enter and we hold a vibration of stillness in its presence then really beautiful things can happen and individuals can have a truly transformative experience…We’ve all heard these stories of individuals who have near-death experiences and they left their bodies or had some experience of their bodies from outside themselves…

Everything in their life changes from that point on…we don’t have to have a near-death experience to be privy to that. We do not. Every time death moves into our circle we have that opportunity. We can have the same experience without being clinically dead…we can touch that and the grieving can touch that.

I am fond of saying that that the old expression “seeing is believing” should be understood differently from the spiritual perspective as “believing is seeing.”  Definitely, our beliefs guide our perceptions and how and what we can see.  When we believe in God, we can see the evidence of God is everywhere.

Silence is very healing. You won’t ever know that until you try it. You can’t learn about that by reading it in a book. You have to experience it. And the silence that someone who is really reaching in their own spiritual journey, the type of silence which that individual soul can cultivate in that space, again, is medicine. It is the deepest medicine in that space. Much more powerful than whatever is being pumped into their veins or through their bodies. And we’re all capable of that. But we have to turn towards, not away.

I talked about presence earlier - what is that? This is what I’m speaking to, is the opportunity to cultivate abiding awareness and attunement to another. Who you know, and they know as well, is approaching the end of their life when the people who they expected to be doing that for them are not…what does it look like to have peace and what does it look like not to, and what’s important and what matters in that space and that time. Relationships matter. Community matters.

What if we saw everything we had to do as a moment for play? Doing the dishes, being in a meeting, putting together a class or report. What if we entered doing that assuming joy, choosing joy, finding joy?

We celebrate birth and then we deny death. The beauty and the joy that attend birth can also attend death, but we have lost sight of that. It’s in our grasp to reclaim that…thats what the vast majority of people who work in hospice are trying to do…changing the way that we handle that transition. For our friends, our family, our community and the people who come in front of us.

Ramana Maharshi said, “Happiness Is the very nature of the Self; happiness and the self are not different.”   

If that is true, why are so many of us not happy?  The world health organization estimates that 300 million people worldwide have depression.  More than that are experiencing occasional sadness, loneliness, or grief.  And in a 2016 Harris Poll of North Americans only 33% said they were happy. 

If happiness is our nature of self, why aren’t we happy? And what can we know about getting happy?

Despite being the one thing assured all of us, our culture does not equip us to be present to death. And, yet, it is no less magical, mystical, and transformative than birth. The act of compassionately companioning the dying is rich with blessings unavailable elsewhere. In this podcast, you will learn simple but profound ways to be present at the bedside, to create a sacred space of passage which, in turn, will return unimaginable gifts of spirit to you.

Everyone wants a miracle healing.  With soul healing that is possible, but how do we get to that miracle.  Then, even more importantly, how do we make that last?  How do we turn that miracle energy of a healing into living a miraculous life?

What about the old things we did not admit and held, that have become a shame in us? That shame becomes an unworthiness. We need a process of not holding, and then self-forgiveness for those old mistakes. It is difficult to admit what we have been holding as our shame. We have to have the courage, to be honest and open-hearted. We are convinced people will reject us or see us and treat us differently. We need to find a place of unconditional love to admit it.

In modern society, we normally think of masculine and feminine in terms of the physiological, and psychological and social aspects of gender, gender assignment, and gender roles. These are interesting topics that have heated up in the last few years because we’ve been finding that the designations of these are much more fluid than science (or society) may have previously believed. However, today we’re really looking at something different from these kinds of categories. When we’re talking about the divine or sacred masculine or feminine we’re talking about energies of the creation.

I don’t know about you, but I have been getting a lot of testings. And they have been tough. I believe has been a timing in which the cosmic and astrological patterns have been heightening this. A couple of my loved ones have passed during this time. Perhaps you have lost someone as well. In addition, I have had other a personal testing in my ability to stand in my truth and in my heart. I know from those I have been talking to, others are having their own tests. So, this blog talk is about how to go through those testings in a positive way.

In my own personal life and when I was an organizational consultant, I noticed that most people have trouble with even well-phrased negative feedback.  Any time we have to face criticism gives most of us some discomfort.  But for some, it is a devastating experience. Though there are a lot of things to say about how to give criticism or negative feedback in a positive way, how to deal with taking criticism in a positive way is our topic for two episodes of Soul Talk.

“Be in the positive” is a state of being.  A state of consciousness through which we view the world.  When we are in that state it makes it automatic that starting the day we feel positive, we wake up that way.  It makes ending the day in positive, your natural tendency.  Like giving thank and gratitude for your day and life.

It was 2002. I was sitting in a temple in an ashram in South India, it was late at night, my 3-year-old son squirming on my lap, nursing on and off and unable to rest or sleep. At the front of the brightly lit room was a colorful altar dedicated to Jesus, Mother Mary and Dattatreya. A young, beautiful saint, Sri Kaleshwar, was talking to a group of western students.

I remember the day so well. It would be my first time meeting Sri Kaleshwar, the Indian teacher who gave the beautiful mantra that I practiced during my pregnancy. My son Toby was about 5 months old when Swami came to Seattle for an intimate teaching program at my parents house. I had never meet a Guru before and aside from the list of instructions my mother had given me, I did not know what to expect. I had been instructed to ask him a question when an opportunity arose.

I am an advocate for creating soul nourishment as part of a daily routine, as a way of life. Looking first to the soul and then to the physical attributes of our lives. If we can switch our perspective to come from the inside (soul, essence, creative source) to the outside or surface, (physical health, emotional, mental health) we will always be able to come from pure love and power. The surface needs will lessen, it becomes possible to change habits, to shift ways of being, to heal heartbreak. The undercurrent of the soul will be driving, and the outer current will respond.

In the Indian Vedic tradition, it’s called trineytra dhara, because every person has a third eye. It means we are also carrying these same energies as Shiva. Every person has the same third eye capacity as Shiva. The third eye, the spiritual eye, is called the gurusthan.

It means once you start any process in your life, first you worship Ganesh to remove the obstacles. He can remove all of the obstacles around you, whatever they are.  There’s no way any obstacle can disturb you in your life, in your process.  That’s why anywhere in India, in millions of temples, in every village temple, they first put Ganesh in front.  The first priority is Him.

What do coconuts have to do with consciousness? The coconut represents us and all of creation. The coconut also represents pure consciousness. Everything, all of the Five Elements, plus divine consciousness is inside a coconut -- just as it is in you. The coconut represents us and the hard shell of our egos, that when 'cracked' and released, reveals the purity and divine consciousness within us.

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka (“The Great Mystery” or “The Great Spirit” or “The Divine”), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” ~ Black Elk

Earlier this week, we posted a prayer for peace as part of our small addition to the “energy of peace” for the planet. Synchronistically, through our dear friend, Robert Rabbin, we found Pujas For Peace – an organization with a positive vision that is calling "…all people and communities around the world to come together {on New Year’s Eve 2016} around a sacred fire in prayer and meditation to bring peace..."

In the first wave of the consciousness movement in the ‘70s, yoga was introduced to the west. Now every city has yoga studios. In the ‘80s, meditation came to our shores. Now meditation is in schools and corporations. In the ‘90s, kirtan singing came to the West, now kirtan is its own genre of popular music. Through yoga, the body was prepared for meditation, through meditation the mind was purified, through kirtan, devotion was awakened. The next wave is puja – Puja is the new yoga. Through puja we can receive divine power and manifest what we need as individuals and for the world.

Every day, (in the) early morning when I wake up I look at my face, and I look in my eyes and ask a question, ‘Am I treating people well or not? Am I ignoring people or really caring for them? How loving and friendly am I around people? Is my egoism going up or staying the same or getting less?’

If it’s going up, immediately I make it come down. Then I go and stand in front of Baba. “Hey, no games. No games. Don’t give the egoism. Who am I to receive all the things? You’ve given it. I know one day you’ll take it out.

Female fierceness is not violent or destructive, not when allowed to roam free. Wild, yes. Unpredictable, yes. Dangerous, yes. Ecstatically primal, yes. Scarily intuitive, yes. And more. Yes. The future of Existence is in your womb. Roar without apology. That is how it is supposed to be. Don’t worry about the men. They’ll figure it out. They’ll be okay.

So, coming to the point, your soul is equal to Adi Shankaracharya. Your body is equal to Adi Shankaracharya. Your soul is equal to Jesus. You have 100% right to receive whatever the top divine souls received on the planet. We’re innocent. Every person is born with equal rights. Mother is one hundred percent fair. We all came from the Womb Chakra of the Mother. Every soul is eligible to have that experience. An amazing spark is in you. Try to pull that out and take care of it. Come up, come up, come up, wake up, wake up, wake up your consciousness!

There’s something unifying and one of those things is that desire, that hope, that impossible dream that we can’t let go of to reach that highest state of consciousness and embody it and bring to the world and help others through that place of awareness. So, in this age that destination is reachable. But, only with certain with tools that will cut through certain illusions and nourish the light that we need to grow in ourselves and in each other. And one of those pieces of knowledge that Swami Kaleshwar always kept on the table was the Gayatri mantra and the Shakti Gayatri mantra. He said many times that most of the ancient formulas and the Vedic traditions are well and good, but they’re not that effective right now on the planet for getting us where we want to go, but he said the Shakti Gayatri and the Gayatri never lost that.

I initially started reading the Shri Sai Satcharita by Dabholkar in 2007, after learning how it could contribute to developing a personal relationship with Shirdi Sai Baba.  When I first heard of Baba through Swami Kaleshwar, I had no idea who he was and never imagined that I could feel as close to him as I do now. So I began reading with the intention of discovering who Baba was. I first read the entire book from beginning to end. Then daily, I would randomly open it up and start reading the full chapter of wherever my finger landed, thus receiving whatever message was meant for me that day. Over the past 4 or 5 years, I simply read a chapter a day starting from the beginning of the book and once I finish the whole book, I begin again and the cycle continues.

The stories of Sai Baba teach me that our live are a divine sacred experience even if our individual consciousness is not aware of that fact. The profound significance of this is to begin to grasp that every experience in my life is a sacred experience washing me. My mind creates illusory classifications of desirable and undesirable experiences, unable to comprehend the total reality of sacred energy, but my soul knows the truth. While my initial miracle experience was a divine sacred experience, so too was the devastating physical illness that followed it; so too was the painful collapse of security structures in my life; so too the conflicts and unmet expectations – each experience I have is there under the guidance of divine consciousness to help the process of self-healing and awakening.

During the transition from the age of darkness into the light, there will be many changes as the world goes through a purification process. The challenges we will face will act as a catalyst for souls to return to spiritual ideals and values. Faith will be the refuge during these times, and loving and caring for one another a necessity. These events will serve to awaken humanity to their real purpose on Earth. It is special char­ac­ter­is­tic of this time, more than any other in his­tory, that it is eas­ier for souls to reach enlight­en­ment than ever before.  There will be a spiritual birth of many enlightened miraculous souls on the planet. As Swami Vivekananda described, “In time to come, Christs will be in numbers like bunches of grapes on a vine.” That time has started.

Every person should know this truth – studentism is like slavery.  Studentism is feeling your master is God.  Don’t do that.  It’s a big crime.  Love a master as a friend, and as a brother.  Give your thanks to him.  If you have the bhakti way then you can touch his feet. In India, thousands of years back they found some supernatural things.  It’s being kept a secret.  The masters don’t release it to the public.  Or, even if they release it, they do not give perfect guidelines to implement it.  Students have nobody showing them how to drive the car.  What good is a car, no matter how beautiful it is, if you cannot drive it?  I know car driving.  I give the car keys to you.  I show you how to drive.  When you have a car and know how to drive you are a new person. Instead of driving their own car, so many people say, “Jesus is great, Shirdi Baba is great, Mother Divine is great.”  So what!  Ok, they are great.  So what!  When will you become great like that?  Do you want to be a slave forever and ever?  Why are they so great?  Why are you not that great? If you want to see the real thing – focus.  The person who is making you focus is not God.  He’s a friend who came in your life bringing light to push you.  On one level he’s a God to you, but the real God is what he experienced, what you are experiencing.

We too must awaken to our relationship with Jesus. Jesus’ consciousness will show our relationship to him, and what we are here to do. We each have to play our part, whatever that is. Each piece of the mosaic is required to create the perfect picture. None of us can fulfill this great mission on our own; it has been thousands and thousands of years in the making. We have to step up and play our role, winning through peace, forgiveness and love pouring from our hearts. “It’s a sign on your soul, guys,” Sri Kaleshwar said, “It’s a sign on your souls to be truthful, loyal to the divine energy, forever and ever until your last breath. You’re here for the society. You’re here for creating peace on the globe. You’re here to take care of the suffering people.”

This knowledge is divine knowledge to help us with our problems. We’re always looking for ways to solve the problems in our lives. The thing is, the ancients found formulas for everything, from how create happiness and prosperity, how to create great relationships, how to create divine children, how to heal, how to see and communicate with angels, how to soul travel, how to connect to the Divine Mother and Father. Like that beautiful prayer that we shared at the beginning of this talk about the possibility of having our own personal relationship the Divine Mother, face to face. These are the kind of things that the ancient books teach us. It goes on and on and on. All the mysteries of life.

From the Teach­ings of Sri Kalesh­war (Rendered by Monika of Penukonda)

What is enlightenment? When you recognize yourself, who you are, where you came from, where you’re going, and what is your duty on this planet. If you receive the perfect information about that, that is called enlightenment...

Before I met my master Sri Kaleshwar I had been working as an energy healer for 15 years, dedicating my life to serving the Divine Feminine and the Divine Mother.  Though a part of me wished to meet a master I never searched for one because of a deep fear I had about what would happen if he or she died, how would I deal with the pain?  How would I survive when he was gone? It was my brother who came across Swami Kaleshwar and after a big inner ordeal we decided to go and meet Him on his ashram in Penukonda, India.  Before I actually met Swami I realized he was my master, but I was still overwhelmed and anxious about my fear of eventually being separated from him.

It began in 2003 when Sri Kaleshwar came to America to give a program in Northern California, specifically in the town of Petaluma at the Noetic Center.  There were 75 people who attended that program and it was a very powerful teaching.  What was particularly unique was that Sri Kaleshwar created a process group that would do its work only in America.  Up until that time, Sri Kaleshwar had set up numerous miraculous energy process groups involving hundred of students, but strictly in India.

Put your monkey mind far away from you. You are doing spiritual sadhana. You're doing spiritual sadhana. No matter what, if you practiced 30 years of meditation, 40 years of meditation, 10 years of meditation, 5 months of a strong process, it doesn't matter. She wants to give you something. She will approach in your life, and give whatever She likes to you through different forms. She is coming, and She is entering in your life. She's already entered you. She's entered in your soul. She's started working with your soul. That is it, period. She has already started.

If a person gets enlightenment, if that person has some more information in his hands, in his brain, and shares the God energy and the God information with another person…if he shares the knowledge with a friend who has no idea, it brings him a lot of energy. If you keep it to yourself like, ‘No, it’s private, it’s mine, I don’t want to leak this idea,’ if you make yourself selfish, it’s very difficult to grow yourself up. If you share whatever God information you received in your life with the people, it brings you much energy.

At the time, one of my big blocks was always expecting something.  I had a strong desiring character, and also a pretty good addiction to meditation. The process we were doing really was a pretty good meditation—trying to see her in everything, while chanting a formula, a vibrational code.  It was a mantra intended to connect our souls directly with the hidden greatness of Mother in nature, which is around us all the time through the Five Elements...

Then I rushed in. Seeing Her standing there was a shock. The room was filled with light She stood perfectly poised on a tiger skin. Stepping into the room was stepping into another world, Her world. She was indescribably beautiful. I never knew such beauty existed. She was absolutely dazzling. There was light coming from all around Her. She was self luminous. She was the source of the illumination and the light was illuminating Her at the same time––She was lit from everywhere. Even though She was this pure radiant light, I was shocked to see how real She was. There is nothing that can prepare you for that. As often as Swami had told us She would appear in a physical form, I couldn’t really comprehend it until I saw Her with my own eyes.

The spiritual seed on this planet started in India. It's true. On this globe, the top spirituality starting point is India. The ancient divine spiritual knowledge of supernatural saints from 2000-5000 years back who practiced powerful mantras and received the highest cosmic energy in their souls. They discovered the Vedas, the secret formula mantras, and the energy angels. Each king, each village sacrificed their life to connect to God. They all recognized the cosmic energy. Now we are practically doing it again.
