It’s all Love. No Matter its appearance.

Question: Respected sir, I am from India, I like to read your every post as I know you are a real teacher of life, and you touched the lives [of] so many. And have much experience, it’s your kindness you are here for all those need guidance.

I also need to know; I don’t know [the] meaning of my life, I am depressed from my life, there is goal, no achievement, no success, no value, I haven’t anything… please guide me, how and what to do in life? I know you are much busy in your life, and you are a celebrity, my respect to you with my heart… if possible guide me, angel.
~

Padma Bearji: Welcome friend…

First I need to say to you and to all who read these words, that I am not an angel, I am certainly not a celebrity of any sort. I AM YOU. We are not separate in anyway, shape, color, or form. [Truth has no form] Thoughts of being less than or more than any other object in one’s life experience is false thinking. A trap of ego mind which is only to create suffering, low self-worth, depression, and even the loss of meaning in one’s life.

I cannot speak to the more intimate meaning of your life, my friend, but I can speak to the meaning of life. It is simply to awaken from the dream, being the illusion we are all separate from God. Happiness is the meaning. The growth of the Soul. LOVE is why we are here.

It is all Love. No matter its appearance.

Awakening can and does happen in a fraction of an instant in the silent mind of not knowing what ego thinks or wants to think. So the guidance for everyone will always remain the same. “BE STILL.”

It is as easy as it sounds. But there is SEEMINGLY a high wall of resistance protecting the ego’s mighty castle where ego hides deep within the dungeon and torture chambers beneath. Ironically the ego keeps within its own personalized prison in fear for its life. In this darkness, ‘ideas’ of despair, shame, low self-worth, depression and worse can grow like a wild and deadly fungus.

All forms are not real. What comes and goes is not real. Always remind yourself to be the mindful witness as That which always remains.

I tell you now to trust what I say when I point to this word, “IDEAS.” And that ideas can change.

All of what you shared today are only the present moment IDEAS of what your ego mind thinks about you and your life. This will change. These concepts of ego are easy to change by just dangling a fresh new identification out in front of its eyes as you grow.

Your thoughts may transform into something like this… “I’m now practicing healing practices instead of woundedness.” As you evolve… “I’m the wounded healer becoming of myself.” And after certain direct realizations… “I am That.”

During some mind training workshops I used to offer, one of the things I would teach was how to take your present moment thinking and make it do what is the underlying Heart intention for that thought. I’ll better explain in this example. One student was running a mantra through her head, “Be the word of God.” How beautiful. But I suggested she make one tiny change to the mantra, “I am the word of God.” You see, you give the ego a piece of candy and it drops what it was obsessing about for this whole new flavor! So simply be aware of your thoughts and learn MINDFULNESS.

The ego will attach itself to anything. The ego, being the source of suffering, is just doing its job as your personality to co-create all these suffering ‘ideas’. Along with the powerful and spontaneous force of the intelligence of Karma, life situations and circumstances provide everything else anyone could possibly ‘dream’, AND THEN SOME, to push a human to either madness or to seek Truth.

Madness meaning how we respond or not respond to our own inner call for healing and freedom. Some may choose a life of drugs, alcohol and unkindly behavior to numb themselves. Others may just find a ZONE and stay there, like cattle on their way to market listening to the same radio station that has been played in the background for them their entire lives. Happily getting into and off the trucks that haul them to the slaughterhouses. Ignorance is NOT BLISS.

You are seeking TRUTH. Good job! Very good!

Finally, there comes the point in one’s life where enough is really, and truly, at last, enough! For myself and many I have heard from, it appears some of us have to take it to where we have hit bottom for the hundredth time AFTER we have already told everyone we know for the hundredth time, ‘This time I mean it, enough is enough!’

So instead of beating the wall of resistance down, imagine you might simply dig in deep to the core of the hidden torture chambers to bring in some fresh new Light. Meaning, just for an instant, not know what you think you are and who you think you are NOT. Remember, you are me, and I am you, and if I can awaken to the Grace of Being, you can too. ANYONE CAN!

Now as far as how you live your life, in your country and particular culture in your country, and for anyone else around the world, the only guidance I can say is to follow what is that little small voice deep within your heart. This is a point of integration, if you will, to That which we all seek as what is behind the name and idea of the word God.

Now, of course, you must pay attention to your well being, and thus ask for help if and when you need it. I ended up homeless once, and it wasn’t a problem as I didn’t make it one. I had a tent and a small amount of food from the local shelter. I had the basic survival needs met. And I trusted the Love that I am, that I recognized within me, so I had no fear as I held my best intention and worked with will to manifest a new life. As I have shared, I am on the steps of homelessness again, but this time the physical health of this body requires me to seek, forces me to seek the help that is WAITING to meet me!

I am asking myself for what I want, and I am getting the positive reply I asked for. Whatever comes, goes, or stays; I AM RESPONSIBLE! You see, in that, there is no suffering.

Love is the glue which is the attracting force of the universe. So it is this Love in your heart, no matter how tiny you think it might be, is what you can trust. Love is trustworthy. Hold your focus out of mind and in your Heart awareness of what Love is. It cannot be known, but it can be experienced in this silence and then lived in the present moment no matter life situations and circumstances.

Trust Love. As within all ideas of what Love is or is not, there is a place of no identification. Ego cannot attach to what is Gods Love. Meaning, ego has no power to try to make Love do what it wants it to do. Love is Freedom. This is Peace.

There is ONLY this One Consciousness. Where is the other to make any kind of judgment? Where is there ground for any idea to stand on?

Be still, listen to your Heart. When it feels of Love, move in that direction. Even a first step away from what is not love is a beginning.

Best wishes to you! Your friend, Padmā Bhājan Bearji

PS. If all of this is an illusion does it really matter? HELL YES IT DOES! As what is happening in the world today is a reflection of the collective mind which holds this illusion in place. So you can trust the voice that rises from the PASSION and compulsion of Loves One Heart as it moves you to where you need to be next.

NEW BOOK – LAUNCH DATE – November 1st, 2018 – (means it will be out September 1st with any luck.) 160 page 5.5×8.5 paperback

“I was deeply moved by your new book….” -Gangaji, world-renowned spiritual teacher.

“In this highly readable book, the author reveals how we can each end the personal suffering of ego-centered thinking and the limits of human perception. At this time of global transformation, profound teachings such as this can bring us all closer to the potential for spontaneous awakening. Written by an experienced true teacher who is a clear reflection of Self-Realization, it is a must-read for all who walk the path of spiritual awakening and enlightenment.” -Hal Zina Bennett, bestselling author

One reviewer raves; A Great Delight! A beautiful companion for those who are engaging the waves of awakening on their voyage to the ‘Yonder Shore.’ Poetic and straightforward, accepting words to express what cannot be spoken, directing us to portholes of silence, and the essentials that transform the ego mind. Bearji (American born author Christopher A. Love) is a passionate and artistic mystic, confirming again he is a seer of the secret teachings only a Sadguru can transmit. He points us with humor and a knock on the head to open our hearts to all of God’s grace and love with the profound esoteric spirituality behind all religions.

The author’s spiritual awakening occurred during a two-week silent retreat with the world-renowned spiritual teacher Gangaji in 1994. At this time she told him, “Go out and speak the Truth to as many people as possible.” The nickname “Bearji” was born from this meeting. Bearji has given his life in service to humanity; this new assignment was readily accepted with great humility. The spiritual transmission of Gangaji, Papaji and Ramana Maharshi arise throughout the silence between these sweet musical words.

 

No one jumps but you…

 

We are all here for one particular reason: to wake up to the Truth of Being.

With a fierce willingness to bring forth into your awareness all of your imperfections, and a devout mindfulness not to sell out to them, Truth Itself transforms everything into Love, Grace, and gratitude! The invitation is the end of all suffering, a life of peace and unconditional Happiness.

Awakening opens up even deeper opportunities to live, receive and give away, create and liberate, in the everlasting flowering-fresh present Now. Being and living in the ‘Now’ leads to more subtle realms of natural Mysticism and Enlightenment.

Holding the ego’s view of the world and play acting out all of its plans for happiness takes tremendous effort. Self-realization is effortless. Slip into your own Awakened Self upon a simple exhale and smile, surrendering the ego-mind to silent Self-awareness.

Being Consciousness is being Self.
‘Self’ – Here all along! Who knew?

No one jumps but you.
In the willingness
To lose everything,
you are Home.

~Bearji

Drink from the well of infinite stillness

“It is easy to believe we are each a self-arising wave.
It is easier to forget we are really the Ocean.

The dewdrop does become Ocean.
And the Ocean refuses no River. 
LOVE cannot be explained,
It can be experienced and expressed.

You are water saying you’re thirsty…
Drink from the well of infinite stillness.

One sip.”
~Bearji

Waterbird

We are all a Waterbird standing in Water. ~Bearji

[Some are still saying, “I am thirsty.”]

Compassion and Loving-Kindness

No matter what color the skin, it bleeds.
No matter what gender, language, nation,
religion, rich and poor;
all have a heart which breaks.
No one gets out of this alive.
All grieve.

Compassion and Loving-Kindness
CHANGES EVERYTHING!
~Bearji

Be Still

“Pure consciousness is your true nature.
Speech only points to awakening.
The Truth of Being is beyond ideas of even ‘Consciousness Itself.’
As you will one day see for yourself.

Be Still.
There are no words for Silent Awareness.”
~Bearji

Life is merely being naturally Mystical…

As is the nature of Truth Itself, life is merely being naturally Mystical…

“Surrendering all of your histories, and all ideas, concepts, hopes, and fears about your future, shreds all ego-mind created identifications about yourself, who you think you are or are not. One must also let go of what you think enlightenment is, and how it may or may not change your life, releasing all hope too. This, then, is the end of comparison and judgment; it’s the release of egos obsessive nature of being separate from Gods Oneness. (Oneness? – Loves beautiful emptiness, the clear Light endless nature of Self’s silent Awareness…)

When the mind stops all the turbulence of hurt, anger, and fear, including the old deep-rooted patterns of, “I’m not good enough…” or… “I am so superior to that other person…” (religions, peoples, and nations, etc.. ), disappear like morning mist in the early light.

This is the moment of inviting Grace to reveal Itself to you in what I call ‘Not Knowing.’ One millisecond is all it takes.

Finally and spontaneously giving the opening for Mystery Itself to remove the veil of illusion. The laughter begins, as Love and Wisdom expose their limitless open secrets.

There is a great awakening that happens on all levels and realms in that very instant. All of life’s horrific challenges are recognized as Grace Itself, that which has served to bring you to this sacred moment. Forgiveness isn’t even a thought as whatever was left behind after a lifetime of inner work, also vaporizes. All shadows dissolve in this Light. Finally, the Sacred Remembrance. Thank God! How many lifetimes has it been?

There is also a direct experience realization of the limitlessness of Being. You know there is no end. This is the moment poets speak of when saying, “All Gods and all Universes are in you.”

The infinite expansion
Of Wisdom and unbounded Love
Prevail
To be blissfully investigated to
The depth of a
Forever and ever
Complete abandonment…

After awakening, the vigilance mandatory of awareness to remain being true to Truth, requires yet another surrender to a new life, an ever-changing and evolving way of being. A deep spiritual life, the acceptance of having a disciplined mind and an undying prioritized commitment to Self. (Mindfulness, mindfulness, mindfulness.)

But who knew that at this level, finally, it ends up being SO MUCH EASIER than the efforts of trying to make life look like how your ego thinks it should look. (Your ego cannot control karmic law.) This ease and grace relaxes one into a more profound surrender into Love’s Mysteries. After all, it is your own Self as Love Itself. What’s not to Love?

One can finally exhale and allow what comes to come, what goes to go and what remains to simply be. Acceptance and a continued ‘Not Knowing’ is freedom from suffering, and a new life of being in a living ‘spiritual practice’ by simply “Being Here Now.”

The ‘Now Wow’ bliss of spontaneous creation, breathing into being in the present moment, is the only thing that will quench the thirst now. Nothing else matters but God as Mindfulness reaps its rewards. It’s ALL right here in this endlessly flowering Now moment.

Life becomes an experience of merely being naturally Mystical… as is the nature of Truth Itself.

Like wildlife being in nature… Even magnificent mountains have a circle of life, they continually evolve into Loves Grace and Beauty, especially when crumbling back into powdery dust and being blown away with the wind into a new fresh expression of Love’s Light. …

We are all a waterbird standing in water.

It is all about meeting God and being in loving service to That which holds all mystery in the silent emptiness. That which is before and after creation. Love moves mountains. Love steps to create from its inner force and expressive powers of compassion and loving-kindness. Do that alone, and you will naturally and unknowing surrender to more and more subtle realms of Gods Now moment, and true Spiritual Awakening.”

Just being me,
Bearji

After just a glimpse of Truth Itself

“After just a glimpse of Truth Itself, your whole being has the opportunity to see things simply as they are, as Spiritual Oneness beyond any attempt at definition. We are all this same Mystery, not separate from each other, planet earth, or the universe. We are spiritual essence, experiencing Itself.

Your own personal peace in life follows. Love Itself naturally arises. This peace and love then flows on to ‘others’ around you. They see your fresh new light and are drawn to it, even if they do not know what they are attracted to.” ~Bearji
