Why we are born?

Dear friend, at your convenience, would you explain, “Why we are born?”

Bearji: This is a great question, that many have asked and few have answers for.

“Why was I born? … “What is my purpose? … “Do I have a preordained destiny? “What’s this all about… And of course naturally there are questions about death, and what happens after this life.

These are the questions that set one out on their path just by having such thoughts. Awesome questions! These inquiries and others like them all can be melted down to the self-inquiry question presented by Sri Ramana Maharshi; “Who am I?” This is a hard question for some to find the right answers that will suit them best, as there are so many conflicting ideas, regions, religions, etc.. Even when you read what a great master states about destiny, it can contradict entirely from the last quote you read, or heard, from this same teacher. I will do my best to give a short answer to “why we are born?” and follow it up with some commentary.

‘The soul is here for its own joy!’ – It means to ‘Be’ in a ‘living present moment.’

The basic idea of what most will grab onto is that ‘the soul is here for its own joy!’ Many mystics speak of this, and one might not feel like this is a truth in their own life with so much further suffering. Yet, after awakening, with continuous mindfulness, deepening and incorporating that awakening in yourself and your new life, (seeking out the change in patterns of body, speech, and mind), if one is lucky, you’ll truly experience what it means to ‘Be’ in a ‘living present moment,’ for more than just a glimpse.

In here is living the Bliss of Being. This ‘Joy Itself’ blows the soul away.

I’m not talking about some psychology report that gives you 29 tricks to learn to be in the present moment, which can help. What I am talking about, my personal experience is beyond that; more like a state of bliss which moves in waves, not unlike a state of samadhi, or experiences of certain substances. The ‘Now’ is so liquid, you already know, through heart intuition, the fullness of what is happening, when it happens, in fact, it is much more of a fluid co-creation of the Heart. The One Heart.

It is timelessly still AND continuous; all of before, during and after… at once.

Even my saying the reason for being here on this planet on a soul level is for its own joy points to spiritual awakening. It’s not hard to understand, especially when there remains so many great foods, experiences, lusts, love relationships, families, and fun entertainment in this world. All of which are pushed to the extremes still seeking.

Your believing mind is what’s in the way. Be Still.

The bottom line is, the last instructions from a final teacher to their ripe students are: Stop the search outside of yourself, you are That which you seek. Stop talking. Stop thinking. Relax. Your believing mind is what’s in the way. Be Still. Not Know. . . .

As awakening spiritually is the meaning of Life. Expressions of love, compassion, and loving-kindness, are the meanings of living… Nothing else really matters. All of life points you to this.

That’s the simple answer. “Who am I?” must be discovered NOT to have a response, it is ultimately unknown. You are Mystery, and yet this Mystery can be experienced as your own Self. This opens the doors to the limitless wisdom aspect of consciousness, great compassionate beings and more. The Buddha saw one billion planets with suns and sentient beings. The Buddha also manifested as eight different Buddhas. Imagine now how the Medicine Buddha called all ‘medicine leaders’ in the world to meet, (other planets too) and when he spoke to them, they all heard their own secrets in their own language. There are no limits of what one can co-create living and ‘being’ in the most unimaged fluid Now. And you are That!

As the Buddha states: ‘What we think we become.’

We are all co-creating right now even if we don’t know it. All of what we are today are the results of what we have thought. There is only ONE MIND (Self), and thus MIND IS EVERYTHING. As the Buddha states: ‘What we think we become.’ Self is beyond mind, meaning it cannot be discovered, uncovered, or otherwise revealed with the use of the mind. Also saying it is and has to be, beyond all of your present moment beliefs about yourself, including and especially all identifications. You are not the body, also meaning you are not your physical appearance, race or your gender, a mom or dad, a brother or sister, a son or daughter, and you are not your many names or the work you do. You are not your gained knowledge, preferences, social status, habits, special abilities, beliefs, fears, hurts, angers, desires or circumstances. You are not your personal stories or family histories. The ego mind has built, rebuilt, put up support structures throughout, has defended its position and sought out other like-minded souls to have a ‘universal’ belief system.

It is the ego’s beliefs that are in the way.

The Mandala of Enlightenment

What is unborn and before this visible, touchy, smelly, tasty, and loud manifest universe is That which is your true identity; which is the awakening.

Body, speech, and mind… with all their many perceptions, sensations, senses and realms, are the mandala of enlightenment.

Meaning your life is the book, the map, and the path. Read that sacred text!

All of what appears are just that, appearances. This is the phenomena of suffering in samsara and having glimpses of Nirvana, which are also unborn appearances since the ‘origin.’ Life also appears as a fashion of this illusion and even with a deeply structured and conditioned ego-mind, still reckoning with a nature of its own, has a longing that cannot be denied. This begins at birth, moving through levels of survival, experiences of love and tragedy, all the way to seeking and finding enlightenment. Seeking an end to this suffering with the body, speech, and mind, give rise to a compassionate mental consciousness. This, fortunately, gives rise to expressions of mercy, loving-kindness, a superb LOVE, and great beings. This is a matrix of phenomena.

All of it, full manifest Enlightenment.

All phenomena live within the mind. The Mind dwells in empty space, and emptiness itself has no home, as by its nature it is void, yet primordially absolutely untouched and utterly radiant. You are that which never dies. The mystical eternal life all religions promise is an awakened awareness, and it is here right now as your own Self. To remember this is why we are born.

~ Padmā Bhājan Bearji ~

Silent holiness of self

The ego is best at sabotaging all of life’s best intentions… through personality character fixations. Often revealing or leaving behind challenging lessons of hurt, anger, and fear in what may appear later as a belief of fate.

The more you recognize patterns of ego with mindfulness, something naturally occurs as the ego eases influence and relaxes its control on your awareness. You can continue to experience seeing through the old filters of perception, current expectations, and all attachments. It is surrendering to our mysterious True Nature and life’s ever-flowing present moment.

Upon spiritual awakening, there is recognition of a preexisting Wholeness, (Holiness), where there can never be any egoic attachments to outside reference points, thus no identifications.

Without egoic attachments to the past or throwing the many hooks into the future, there remains only now, revealing an end to all suffering.

The job description of ego personality that thinks it’s uniquely special or that it’s not good enough isn’t necessary any longer. This is releasing some of the hard attractions and claws of karma.

Mind has the opportunity to transform spontaneously into its present moment true giving-and-receiving nature of Wholeness. This transforms living into an expression stirring with the lifestream forces of intelligence through heart intuition and subtle states of consciousness. Never against it.

When unattached to any ideas, all there is left is the silent Holiness of Self, states of bliss and realms of wisdom, all remaining at your service.

The infinite stillness and wisdom of empty awareness exposed as your own Self will bring you to your knees. There will be no words yet an endless and selfless longing to express love with language cannot be denied. The Heart also grows with compassion and loving kindness to all beings, creatures, and peace to planet earth. Such is Grace. Such is Self. Only Love is that powerful.

This and more is the Holiness revealed from practicing mindfulness and allowing surrender for an instant of ego mind ‘Not Knowing.’

Padmā Bhājan Bearji

Abundant love is the hidden treasure…

Spiritual surrender means letting go of understanding with the mind. You have all heard teachers, and me here on FB say, ‘Be Still.’ I also enjoy saying ‘Not Know.’ The thought of surrendering to Not Knowing seems like it could be scary as it is an unknown. A Mystery. Therefore, through fear, most people are consumed and bound their entire lives within the range and scope of their own limited thoughts, imaginations, and beliefs.

We must be mindful on how imagination arises and how we get attached to the entertainment of such thoughts as they turn into our belief systems. We also need to be mindful that mystery by definition has no words, so we must relate to absolute Truth and not our limited wordy thoughts and convictions.

This is the challenge of ‘Not Knowing,’ as we deepen our fear that what we have been told, what we have turned into our survival strategies, meaning our beliefs, could be wrong. We are threatened by doubt. Maybe we are not living in the Truth? If so, what is real?

This is when we tighten our grip, we hold on to, binding ourselves to the limitations of our belief systems to keep us safe from the unknown. This is a great mistake. Belief systems are the glue of all struggle, including all so-called holy wars, that effects us all and the quarreling and suffering planet earth as we see and feel every day on the news of our times.

One of the hardest things for me is having no words… (why I use so many of them… lol) In my effort to point others to this Sacred Remembrance of ‘Self,’ my Heart fills and overflows with Love and all-consuming compassion of which my heart can’t utter. But that has never stopped me from trying.

Self is beyond mind, as the recognition is of your ‘Self’ as God. In the sacred remembrance from the experience of Self-realization, from the Union of what you have never been separate from, you too will have no words.

God Itself is a concept, a thought. Truth Itself is beyond the idea of mind, the word God, or any and all other words. Self is over and above mind. You are Mystery Itself as already awakened awareness. Clear Light Itself. Emptiness by any other name… Silent stillness.

Whatever you do or not do, please DO NOT believe what I say. Do not take this to the mind and try to make it do what you want it to do. This is not about doing or believing, it is all about your own direct realization. You must find out for yourself. You must become comfortable with the discomfort of ‘Not Knowing.’

The good news of awakening is that it only takes a millisecond.

‘Be still’ right now. ‘Not Know’ right now this instant, and allow Self to awaken your busy wordy entertaining mind to the Truth, and the Trust of Love, of Silent Consciousness, where there is never any doubt. This cannot happen with beliefs, or by reading books, or believing in channels or angels, or even following a teacher. One is alone in their own direct realization. (Hint – there is only ONE, no other to believe in.)

No need to wait… As you are already awakened. You are already That which you seek. Stop the search. Stop the mind. ‘Not Know’ and allow this Mysterious Love to swallow you in complete surrender.

~Padmā Bhājan Bearji

Abundant love is the hidden treasure that the quiet mind reveals. It doesn’t need to be talked about. It’s natural to experience and share it. ~Gangaji

I want to ask you how I could get enlightened?

Question: Hello Sir, I want to ask you how I could get enlightened?

Bearji: Yes, this is the question isn’t it?

Enlightenment begins only from direct personal experience of what many call Self-Realization. After this awakening, it is hard to resist, as much as one might try, as there indeed appears to be no other choice but to give your life to that awakening.

Let me also start by saying that Enlightenment is everywhere at this moment. In fact, you are already enlightened, you just haven’t realized it yet… Or I can say it this way; there is no such thing as enlightenment as there is nothing, no one, to be unenlightened.

Considering there is only One Wholeness, some call emptiness, and everything that exists, all forms, including all universes, dimensions, and realms, as those too are subtle forms, are of this One so-called Emptiness. So it is everywhere.

Now considering there are over 7 billion people on this planet, there are over 7 billion paths to enlightenment, and honestly not two will be identical.

“It doesn’t matter which direction you throw your prayer rug. It’s all God, and it’s all Grace.” ~Rumi (paraphrased)

Now the questions are many!

‘How do I know I’m on the path?’ ‘Where do I go? What do I do, or not do? Are there books on enlightenment? (Oh, brother, let me tell you!) Can I listen to people speak? (Holy Mother, they are out there!) Is there anyone I can pay for enlightenment? (Oh, sister, now let me tell you they just don’t stop coming out of the woodwork! Ha!) Do I need to dress, eat and speak differently? Ah, crap. Now, do I have to stop using deodorant?’

So now I’ll tell you, you are in the right place, as I can save you ALL… over twenty-five years to lifetimes of seeking and suffering.

STOP ALL THAT!

My path? Extremely challenging life from the very first day. These challenges continue nearly sixty-five years later. Also from the beginning as far back as I can remember, profound mystical experiences have also filled my life and have fueled my spiritual seeking. Age four, again at age seven, fifteen was a big one that blew my heart wide open to where it left me with absolutely no doubt what direction my life would take. Twenty-five years later, at age forty, I had my direct realization on day five of a two-week silent retreat, Satsang with Gangaji 1994, Breintenbush Oregon. Mystical experiences are part of living in the Now; there is no other choice but to live in the present moment. There is no such thing as mystical anymore really, there is no separation.

I make jokes about my ‘guru handbook.’ But indeed for a true teacher, a final teacher, some things can and can’t be done if one is TRULY true to Truth. One of those rules Gangaji told me when she pushed me out to teach, I can only speak from direct experience. So you can trust what I am saying as I know how to be true to Truth. It’s in the blood that keeps pumping to my heart. I’ll say, at this point in my life, stillness hasn’t let me down once. Whatever the question.

So with that said. Here are the instructions.

STOP ALL THAT!

Relax, it is you already. At some level, this is the most natural thing as since you are that one Self, you have unlimited power and opportunity to realize this. Yogananda once called it a Sacred Remembrance, and when I read that, I had to laugh as indeed, that was my experience, ‘Oh, right! It was me all along!’

Relax means to stop seeking, stop the search! It is not separate from you now in this instant. So STOP. Put down the books, put down the calendar to listen to someone speak, stop paying someone for what and who you already are. What you seek is seeking you and you are That!. It is not outside of who you are. Seeking in this way creates learning obstacles along the path to help point you back to center.

Satsang is always free for everyone.

The self-inquiry question, ‘Who am I?’ cannot be answered. So give up the search, now you can be Still.

BE STILL. NOT KNOW. These words are the final instructions.

Self is beyond mind, meaning it cannot be discovered, uncovered, or otherwise revealed with the use of the mind. Also saying it is and has to be, beyond all of your present moment beliefs about yourself, including and especially all identifications. You are not the body, also meaning you are not your gender, mom or dad, brother or sister, and you are not your name, or your career or job choice. You are not any of your preferences, habits, beliefs, fears, hurts, angers, desires or circumstances.

The ego mind has built, rebuilt, put up support structures throughout, has defended its position and sought out other like-minded souls to have a ‘universal’ belief system. It is the ego’s beliefs that are in the way.

‘Getting away from my beliefs? It’s the world I know! How can anyone do this?’ This too I often hear; ‘it is so much harder then it sounds…’

Yes, if that’s what you want. Being Still is a choice.

It doesn’t have to be hard. It actually takes less than a millisecond. It requires letting go of your mind for just a slip of a second.

Mind training you ask? YES, PLEASE! Five words; Meditation, Meditation, Meditation. No excuses.

Finally, once and for all, BE STILL. Surrender to ‘Not Knowing’ and find out for yourself. Right now is good, no need to finish reading…

It happened to me on an exhale.

Okay, I know what you are all thinking. “But… “Why… “When… “I’m not getting it… “Maybe I’m not ready…

STOP!

“A gold mine is calling us into its temple. Instead, we bend and keep picking up rocks!” ~ Rumi

Stop using the mind for investigating the outer dimensions. All worlds, all universes, all realms, all gods reside in you. What is it before creation? Imagine an emptiness, something which you can’t define as there are no reference points and thus no attachments for the ego to identify within this void of emptiness. It has to and will always remain an endless mystery. So get over it. Yet, that is who you are and you can experience yourself as Mysterious Self.

It’s the story of the fish who keep saying they are thirsty while they are surrounded by this golden nectar called Grace and Glory all along.

Do you want to know Mystery? It’s the love you seek. It is the love you have tasted. The longing for LOVE will guide you. Love is Trustworthy. Trust Love. It is all and only LOVE. Whichever way Grace looks at you, it’s still Grace.

After awakening? Give me your report, as there remain some traps to fall into, all I’ll say right now are the next three words you’ll need to know after awakening — Mindfulness, Mindfulness, Mindfulness.

All Love and Smiles,
Padmā Bhājan Bearji

Give up!

Student: Dear Teacher… I literally have thousands of books, watch countless videos on metaphysical topics. It’s become an attachment, fixation (an addiction). How do I shake this grasping? Feels like I’m running in a circle. How do I call off the search?

Bearji: Give up!

Student: Lmao… awesome!

Bearji your messages come at [the] right moments. You are a gifted guru/teacher putting the mirror back on me. These are dark moments going within for refuge.

Bearji: Yes… seemingly dark…

Student:?

Bearji: Life can seem to be horrible at times, and there is no denying that… but upon awakening, it is all seen, recognized, at a much higher level of Truth. The perception of what has been called ‘Horrible’ looks different, now seen from a new ‘location’ in Truth, as Grace Itself.

This grace has severed you to seek and to come to the end of your rope finally… [Let go of the rope!] But with the tremendous good luck to ask the right question at the right time… My job is to get you to understand the word STOP finally. Stop meaning STOP! Stop all thoughts; you have to NOT KNOW ANYTHING. No mind, all heart.

It takes less than a second, as it is you already. All the seeking seeking seeking ends up merely being the path; life is the path… then one day, finally one needs to ‘give up’ the search. As it is not outside of you. It has been YOU all along.

Yet, within this realization, the so-called ‘veil of illusion’ is lifted, the Voice of Wisdom is revealed, and all of what you have tasted during your life called LOVE is multiplied by what is the true limitlessness of your own Being. Love, being an endless Mystery flowering its own Self back into its Self.

Self-Realization profoundly changes one’s life forever. I mean FOREVER!

Such is the face of Grace as what is undeniably ‘Horrible.’

One of the rules in the guru handbook is to only speak from direct experience. You are in the right place.

Bearji

PS. These are the right questions, coming from a ripe student. Anyone can choose to ask me a question. I am at your service.

One must have a broken heart…

One must have a broken heart… We have all heard the quote: ‘Where the vase is cracked is where the Light comes in.’

The Light of a broken heart reveals your tenderness and vulnerability to what may come with the unknown future.

It hurts… Right?

A wounded heart needs healing. Bring your awareness to your broken Heart and allow it to be filled with Light and Grace.

A healing heart has the opportunity to discover even deeper levels of your sensitivity, empathy for others, and higher levels of understanding, compassion, and loving-kindness. The invitation is to see all of humanity with warmth and love, as indeed, all people are suffering, all people are healing something.

This then can uncover other and much older personal issues of hurt, anger, fear, mistrust and more, potentially going back to early childhood.

Yet this is the good news, as you have recognized where and what you want to heal so to make new choices, breaking old patterns, bettering yourself and your life.

Healing a broken heart becomes the FIRE of Awakening, WHERE TRUE CHARACTER IS FORGED. And that is the whole point!

Please shift your perception of doing inner work, as it doesn’t have to be hard. It won’t be hard if you embrace it. Break the patterns! Do it today, or years from now, or a few hundred more lifetimes. No need to wait. 

See the inner work as an opportunity to evolve and awaken. What appears to be hard, is not, it is Grace trying to show you where to hold your awareness. Grace Itself has the appearance of two faces. 

After awakening, we are still put through such tests in life. Yet these tests end up being welcomed, and eventually, the only thing that really matters. As this is where you continue to deepen your self-realization, endlessly expanding in Love Itself with acceptance, no attachments, freedom from suffering, and endless higher levels of the Truth of Being.

This is the infinite treasure of Silence… No one has ever reported an end to spiritual awakening.

When Truth reveals Itself to you in Awakening, you will be filled with so much pure Love, it will shine brightly as it overflows and pours out of you with complete surrender. This is true Baptism! And the more Love you give away, the more of Loves golden nectar flows into your Heart and overflows endlessly into the future. This is GRACE…

Embrace Grace. 

Blessings and all Love, 
~Padmā Bhājan Bearji

Love will overflow in your life in every direction

Happiness is our true nature. When we seek happiness and are ruthlessly faithful in our investigation, we eventually discover it is something spiritual that we are seeking. True and lasting happiness is not found in possessions, lovers, more comfort or power… or anything else that is impermanent. 

You are That which you seek! You are this Mystery. Stop seeking, stop thinking it is something to grasp or gain and possess. Wherever you seek, leads you off the mark… Genuine happiness waits to greet us all in the surrendering of the mind, in ending the search by simply stopping the mind and all its beliefs for just a millisecond in ‘not knowing.’ 

The invitation and opportunity is a life of peace, freedom from suffering and living life mindfully in the present moment… As I like to say… There is no need to wait… Be still now. Silence Itself is at the core of everything that exists. Silence is your highest true nature. 

Living mindfully in the present moment, happiness is natural no matter what appears or disappears in your circumstantial and situational life experiences.

While deepening your awakening in what is uncreated, unstained and untouched silent Mysterious Truth Itself, that which is Self, that which is divine essence of Love Itself, your life evolves with fresh expressions of an open loving, kind, and compassionate Heart. One Heart. 

When my teacher told me to offer Satsang, one of her instructions was to only speak from direct experience. If you are new to my teachings, welcome. You are in the right place. Be still. Allow me to point you to the essence of ‘Loves Golden Necture.’

Then you will see for yourself how Love will overflow in your life in every direction. You will know happiness, laughter, and peace no matter what appears, stays or disappears in your life. This is the end of all fears, including death, and the beginning of an endless and limitless mystery.

May Peace be with you. May all beings wake up. Let there be Peace on Earth. Om Shanti Shanti Om. 

~Padmā Bhājan Bearji

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.
