MESSAGE FROM WAYNE

Hello my loves,

Life is change. All of us are changing every instant. The cells in our body are dying and new ones are being born. Every thought subtly changes us. Every experience serves to make us a new person.

Yet you may notice something in you craves certainty and predictability. It wants something solid to hold onto, which unfortunately is the opposite of the fluidity of change.

Certainty, predictability and solidity are prerequisites for a feeling of control and with the illusion of control comes an illusion of security (however short-lived it may be). Everyone desires to feel secure, to feel safe...it is the most natural of human desires.

The possibility of personal control (false sense of authorship in my language) is dependent on the sense of being an independent entity because only an entity not subject to the influence of an "other" could possibly be in control. The pointer of this Living Teaching of Advaita is that in a constantly changing universe, personal control can only be an illusion. It is a fairy tale told by the False Sense of Authorship with its claim of independent power emanating from an independent entity.

So what of the desire for safety and security? The interim solution is to recognize it for what it is....a desire. And as with all desires it may be satisfied or not. Sometimes you feel safe and secure, sometimes you don't.  The feeling has little to do with the actual state of things. Ultimately beneath the desire for safety and security is the deep yearning for Peace...a Peace that is not conditional and thus does not come and go. Such Peace is the recognition that all is unfolding perfectly as part of a vast and unknowable functioning. It is the Peace of what we Are.

May it find you now....

With much love,
Wayne

A HOMAGE TO THE UNIQUE TEACHING
OF RAMESH S. BALSEKAR
 

“How does one thank someone who gives you:

Freedom, from guilt and regrets of the past;
from fears of the future;
from the idea that one is not free;

Trust, in the moment that has to be exactly as it is;

Acceptance of and Contentment in whatever happens?

This time when I met him I understood that
the Guru is not loving; He is Love.
He is not kind; He is compassion.
And most of all, He is not in my heart;
He is my Heart.

For this blessing,
there is no way of being grateful enough.”

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)

Neither the primordial energy of consciousness, nor the manifestation therein and its functioning, is subject to the relative constraints of any laws or regulations - it functions in a noumenal freedom that is quite incomprehensible to the human intellect.

WORDS FROM THE HEART
 

We leave it to grace, to grant us release.
God will do this through the gaze of his Sage,
He sends down His messenger for every age,
To those who yearn and pray for great peace.
The Realized Sage lives on here and now,
Without confusing the Self with the mind.
Humble, compassionate, loving and kind,
Wisely profound, as his way clearly shows.
He steers the vessel of firm devotees,
Fulfilling everyone’s spiritual need.
In deep silence, he sits, with perfect ease,
To awaken those, whom his teaching well heed.
Graciously, his great glance of initiation,
Drives the mind inwards, to Self Realization!

A.
