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.

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

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
