On the illusion of separateness and its remedy

wow, see what i just got? Mercy………….it is just the thing we need to be reminded, learn and live. Here, is where ‘science’ can be of MUCH HELP, since it talks about the natural cycles and the behavior of sub-atomic particles, which can give a better picture of a GENERAL WORLD-VIEW to each person. No wonder the nations who are advanced in science are now more inclined toward love (The Essence of Spirituality), the real one, the non-fearing love….. Thanks to Baba
On 5/30/06, a beloved brother….. > wrote:

The senses and ego-mind cause us to see others and everything
outside our body, as separate and/or different to ourselves.
But love, simple love, pure love, perfect love, non-desiring love,
non-fearing love
, allows us to see/perceive others and everything
as yourself, as an intrinsic part of ourself.
It thus overcomes ‘the illusion of separateness’, caused by perceiving
others and everything via the senses and ego-mind,
and leads us to the state of ‘I alone Am’.
We realize, at a very fundamental level,
that everyone and everything is indeed ourself/oneself.
The tiny mortal drop-self realizes itself
to actually be The Infinite Immortal Ocean-Self,
via the very simple ‘mechanism’ of pure selfless love.

Mehera Meher / “Being Is Dying By Loving”

Jay Baba…. just wrote to a dear one, that i have a VERY relaxed and fine time here in Dehradun, at Baba’s Center = Meher Prasad. “Thanks to Baba Himself.” Yes, last night i was reading Mehera Meher…. what an amazing Baba….. what REAL stories….. if the AUthor/narrators were unfamiliar, you could doubt the reality of them! This is one of the advantages of living there: old magazines like The Avatar,Divya Vani, Beloved Baba, etc…. and rare books. This Mehera Meher is mostly about Meheraji Irani, who Baba says she is the ‘purest soul’ in the Universe. Reading about her and her devotion and love for Baba is truly a blessing for me….lots of very fine/old pictures of Baba and the mandalis __saw Mehernath Kalchuri’s picture last night with the family and Baba, when he was about 5-+!!
What a collection is this book…..Thanks to David Fenster who made it possible.
….just now found this in my inbox and thought of sharing =
!

Boroni is in Australia at Avatar’s Abode
at the Sahavas at Beloved Baba’s home there,
this 48th Anniversary Sahavas is held evry year and is commemorates
Meher Baba’s visit to His beautiful Avatar’s Abode there in JUNE 1958.
I will be staging “Being Is Dying By Loving” again in celebration,
and away until the 17th June, will e-mail after that time, In song, Raindrops “

And what a beautiful opera is this “Being Is Dying By Loving”…..just lovely music and wonderful movements….. Good for the Australian lovers and those who can afford to visit and participate in the Sahava (Gathering of devotees of Meher Baba)…………….Jay Baba

Free Mana Neyestani& Meherdad Ghasemfar

Jay Baba, What a non-sense! just got the news that Mana is arrested…. Do not know who is Meherdad Ghasemfar (another journalist perhaps/ Editor of the paper?) but i always liked Mana’s art of caricaturing! These days, to divert the attention of people from their ‘real’ problem, the mullas are into another ‘typical’ mischief: the Azaries protest against an article in Iran Newspaper….first, I also though that there is ‘something’ (an intentional insult to the Turks in Iran), but when I saw the actual cartoon and got the context this morning, I see that this is JUST an excuse! A ‘good excuse’ to revenge and harm the people! Because Mana’s art, have been always very expressive, SHARP, AND at the service of LIGH = LOVE (naturally against the ‘dark forces’!)

This is the price one pays for being a ‘truthful artist/journalist’ in that ‘occupied land of Persia’! This makes me apublish something I wrote a long time ago, when Zahra Kazemi, another truthful journalist, was murdered by that ‘Judge’, in a most brutal inhuman fashion, inside Evin prison in Tehran! It is VERY emotional, that is why I did not publish it so far, but why not now?! Have saved it ‘as a draft’ in one of my blogs and will post it asap. Following is from http://farshadebrahimi.blogsky.com/?PostID=116 + some editing…….

درباره ماجرای کاریکاتور روزنامه ایران و اتفاقات پیرامونش …
…. به نظر من آن چیزی که در این روزها کسی از آن نمی گوید مانا
نیستانی و مهرداد قاسمفر است ! و هرکس با توجیح خودش ! حکومت ایران که اصلا دل خوشی
از روزنامه نگاران ندارد و الان سعید مرتضوی میدانم که ته دلش دارد غنج می رود که
بالاخره دلیلی پیدا کرد که مانا را که بسیار از کاریکاتورهای وی همه میدانیم حضرات
شاکی بودند بازداشت کند و همینطور مهرداد … هر دوی این عزیزان الان قربانی بیش از
دو دهه بایکوت اقوام ایرانی شده اند ، همه میدانیم که در این کاریکاتورها
عمدی در کار نبوده است.
این عین واقعیت کار روزنامه نگاری است ، آنهم در کشور
مثل ایران ، یادش بخیر اولین روزی که می خواستم بروم در بهار بنویسم و کارم را در
آن روزنامه شروع کنم پور عزیزی که واقعا عزیز است گفت سند خانه کنار گذاشتی
؟! این روزنامه نگاری است هرچقدر هم که احتیاط کنی هر چقدر هم که هواست
به همه چیز جمع باشد یکهو می بینی یکی از یه جایی حالا یا دولتی است و یا یکی
از همان آدمهای حرفه ای و همیشه ناشناخته شاکی می شود . بهانه ای دست و پا
میشود و جنجالی برپا . اصلا کاری به روزنامه نگاران حرفه ای و یا سیاسی نویس
ندارم مگر نم نبات و بچه های دانشجوی پلی تکنیک در نشریه موج سیاسی کار بودند
؟ داستانی نوشتند و یادتان هست که موجی به یکباره در کل ایران به پا شد ! و
تا پای اعدام خیلی ها می خواستند آن بچه ها را بکشند و یا مگر یادمان رفته آنچه که
بر سر هفته نامه ” خانه ” آمد ؟ من گرچه به تمام حساسیتهای این روزهای هموطنان آذری
زبانم احترام میگذارم و با آنان همدردی هم می کنم و تمام آنچه که این روزها بر این
عزیزان میگذرد را محکوم میکنم اما اینرا هم می دانم و شک هم ندارم که مانا
روحش هم خبر نداشت که استفاده از اصطلاحی روزمره، که همه می گویند و این
روزها دیگر متعلق نیست به گویش خاصی در کشور بهانه ای بشود برای این اتفاقات
. مانا تا همین‌جایش هم بیش از آن‌چه باید، تاوان پس داده است. تمام
آنچه که این روزها دارد انجام می شود یک داستان طنز تلخ و یا سیاه است ! عده ای در
صدد تخلیه تمام بغض های فرو خورده خویش هستند و عده ای دیگر نیز از سر بی اطلاعی
بازیچه جنجال آفرینان و عده دیگری هم بساط معرکه گسترده اند و در صدد تسویه حسابهای
خویش این بوده بدشانسی مانا و سردبیر. نمی خواهم دچار توهم توطئه بشوم و
دشمن دشمن بگویم ! ولی با خود میگویم همین چندی پیش سریالی از تلویزیون پخش
می شد که بیشترین اهانتها را به آذری زبانان ما میکرد و شخصیتهایش با لهجه
آذری چه ها میکردند ، چرا آن موقع به یکباره این اعتراضات شکل نگرفت ؟ و یا چرا
وقتی در فیلم سینمایی در همین جشنواره امسال که البته بسیاری هم اعتراض
کردند بسیار بدتر از این به آذری زبانان ما توهین شده بود صدای از جایی بر
نخواست ؟ چرا باید باز دوباره و مثل همیشه این روزنامه و روزنامه نگاران باشند که
هزینه نابخردی حاکمان را بدهند ؟
این روزها تبریز ، ارومیه ، زنجان ، اردبیل ،
نقده و همه آذری زبانان میهن پهناورمان ایران در تب و تاب هستند در
مقابل مجلس در خانه ملت قلع و قمع شان می کنند و در خانه هایشان هم به ضرب
باتوم و … با آنها بر خورد می کنند و دنیا صدای آذربایجان را شنیده
است و همه ما هم میدانیم که مشکل کاریکاتور مانا نیست ، و اصلا شاید
آحاد معترضین نه مانا را بشناسند و نه ایران جمعه را خوانده باشند و نه اصلا شاید
آن کاریکاتور را دیده باشند ، مشکل بسیار بزرگ‌تر از چند حرف لاتین ‌است که
مانا در دل کاریکاتوری نوشته است … مشکل در جای دیگری است که پیش از
این گفته ام !
پس، امروز وظیفه ماست که همه ما اعم از ترک و لر و کرد و
بلوچ و عرب ، همه ما ایرانیان ضمن اینکه در شکستن بغض آذری زبانانمان در
اینهمه جوری که بر آنها رفته است ، با آنها همراه شویم ، آزادی این دو
عزیز را نیز خواستار بشویم و بخواهیم تا روزنامه ایران را دوباره آزاد کنند تا حد
اقل این روزنامه نگاران فرصتی بیابند تا بتوانند از حق پاسخگویی در برابر آنچه که
این روزها پیش آمده استفاده کنند ….

On labeling our ‘divine tendencies’ /content development

Jay Meher Baba

Just received this email from a dear brother in the family, who we have some ‘technical debates’ sometimes! He referred to a very important issue, and I just expressed myself! Hope you like the content!
Speaking of the ‘content’, while studying Google Adword/Adscene, I came across the category of ‘content developer’. Do I qualify to be in this category? Am I actually developing content material on the net, by these postings? If yes, then thanks to Meher Baba and His lovers who made this possible! Jay BabaHuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

He wrote today: “….Now that I’ve realized / accepted that a lot of my ‘feeling’ was just sexual desire, and not love, it comes down to:
Can I control my desires ?
or do my desires control me ?

The same is obviously true for fear and anger etc.

Your ‘instinctive attraction’ is just a fancy expression for plain desire or lust.
Until we can gain full control of our physical desires, and emotions, we are going to stay trapped in a stupid dream / illusion lifetime after lifetime.”

And I replied….

“….Yes, you are right about the ‘fancy expression’! yet i like to use it, since it sounds ‘innocent’, or ‘divine’!! Please note that how we are looking/calling/labeling something can make a difference in DEALING with it…..if i call it ‘lust’, then it has a ‘negative’ connotation and it brings ‘guilt feeling’ = number one enemy of the divinity within. But if i call it ‘natural instinct’, then i have the privilege and power to rise ABOVE nature and instincts and do what i like with it…..that has been my experience of dealing with my ‘natural desires’ and thanks to the Existence, so far so good.
…. and a confession to you: i am NOT really REALLY, really so mad= eager=ambitious about NOT COMING BACK! Yes, i have suffered so much and do not want to suffer more and more, yet, i have also enjoyed and gave joy to others. This latter makes me ‘daring’ enough, not to be so fussy/anxious about ‘getting enlightenment in THIS life’… as long as i love and serve myself and others, i am NOT in a hurry! Baba knows the best for each us and i leave it to His wish…. MY work/duty/fun in THIS life is just to love Baba and GO FOR GOD and make others happy……you may say that i am ‘fooling myself’, but what can i do? Any suggession?!!

thank you for the sharing and the tips
love
Huuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Non-Violent Communication in Meherabad, India/Iran/….everywhere

Jay Baba ALL… what a happy news i just received from sister Raine = Boroni, the Empress of Songs for Babaji __ not to forget dear Cindy, who is also an Empress in this regard!

Dear Mohsen, Jai Meher,There was such a course at Meherabad
February 22nd 2006 hosted by Zeek Paterniti a facilitator in NVC.
This year Doctor Nina Schubert will again be asisting Gus and Radha
in the medical office and
she is an NVC counselor too and might be happy to do such a course,
In song raine.
and see how i replied…. i am really excited to learn this Giraffe Language, as Marshall Rosenberg calls it, enough of the Jackal language! i just pray to Babaji to let me learn it and use it and possibly spread the concept…. MEHRABAD, in Tehran (is a name of the international airport) is also in NEED of such a language!
Dearest Boroni
Wow, thanks for the good news….. will post it there….
let others know we are ‘advanced’!!!!
i was in Delhi for Baba’s BD and missed that one,
but hope to catch hold of Doctor Nina’s ‘skirt’!
because i really want to learn this language.
(i am very poor in learning other languages!)
Can i have her email ID, please? After her consent, of course!

A Mission Possible, technically and emotionally!

Jay Babaji…. today earlier i came to go back earlier! Tony Griss is in town and we will have an ‘extra satsang’ in Meher Prasad, to listen to his stories on Baba and the Mandalis…. see what i got from a brother regarding the technical aspect of my FUTURE DREAM! Hope to get more responses on VARIOUS aspect of this ‘Mission Possible’…… i feel the EMOTIONAL aspect (the HEART part of it to say YES to it!) is much more important than the technical side (the 100 kbps we have at Arangaon is enough for the time being)….more on this later….

“……I think you’re confused about the tech stuff.
You could have a Cray Supercomputer on The Hill but you still
couldn’t connect to the internet any faster than the local ISP
internet speed. This might be 512Kps on an actual phone line,
but is unlikely to be any more than about 80Kps via their mobile
network. In Thailand, and probably India, you can get a SIM card
that’s designed to go into a computer, rather than a mobile phone.
It lets you connect to the internet anywhere a mobile phone will work.
At about 80Kps it’s much faster than connecting via a mobile phone.
The main Australian ISP is putting in a mobile network that will allow
connections to the internet that are far faster than even cable.
(about 10MBps I think). It will make all other types of connection
seem like a bullock cart. Sooner or later Indian ISP’s will probably
do something similar.”

the illusion of separateness

Jay Baba, it is around 6 pm and i better go to Meher Prasad, for the satsang and arti….. just see what i got from a brother on the subject! Very good example of HOW understanding our emotions can help dispel the darkness of Maya….. thanks /congratulations to my dear brother, enjoy, Jay Baba….. Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

‘Instinctive attraction’ may be groovy,
but it’s NOT love, which is what I’ve realized. ….
but I’ve now realized I was following something located lower down.
She excites me sexually, just looking at her, and my brain gets flooded with a hormone called Oxytocin which makes me feel emotionally high,
(quite separate to my sexual arousal).
Simultaneously, the parts of the brain responsible for reasoning
and judgment are switched-off.

Quite a diabolical process which is in most mammals.
Profound abstract spiritual truths can be inspiring,
but understanding why we do what we do can sometimes be better understood thru science.
I am now free of the delusion that I was in love with her.
And becoming free of Maya’s spell
(the illusion of separateness) is what spirituality is basically all about.

Avarat Meher Baba’s last warning

Avarat Meher Baba’s last warning
To those who love Him, obey him and all who would wants to do so.

Baba wants all His lovers to know that:

This is a very critical period of the Avataric Age,
and all His lovers must strive to their utmost
to hold His Daaman very firmly so that it does not slip out
of their hands under any circumstances.

It is very important for all His lovers, especially in this critical period not to succumb to lust. Temptations are, and will be great, but your love for Him should be greater.
Remember Him wholeheartedly and rise swiftly from where you have fallen,
to march ahead in His love and service.

It is equally important at this critical period of the Avataric Age, to beware at all times of persons who lead others into believing that they are saintly and pious and profess to possess supernatural powers. However pious such persons appear to be, a Baba-lover must never mix such piety with the Divinity of the Avatar.

A true Baba-lover must remember the repeated warning given to all Baba-lovers,
time and again, to stay away from persons who feel and assert
that they are masters and saints and possess powers to help human beings.
His lovers and workers should never get involved with such persons and affairs, much less with “perverted “helpers of humanity”, who have no reverence or regard
for the Perfect Masters and the Avatar of the Age.
Beware of them who exploit spiritually to gain their selfish ends
and dupe others in the name of Sadgurus and the Avatar.

His lovers and workers should not get intimately involved
with the family affairs of one another,
and they should not be emotionally upset
by the personal affairs concerning any of their families.
They should NOT let any personal affairs vitiate their relationship
with one another, or affect their efforts in the work they do for the cause of Truth.

He wants His lovers and workers who are spreading His message of Love to others,
to share His love among themselves
and to uphold the spirit of harmony and understanding in His name.
He wants them to be less aggressive toward others
and less tolerant toward themselves;
and above all, He wants them to love Him wholeheartedly,
for He is the Ancient One,
who loves them more than they can ever love themselves.

Meher Baba, through Adi K. Irani, July 1968

“Shun those masters
who are like multi-coloured electric signs
that flash on and off, brightening the dark sky of your world
and leaving you in darkness again.”

Baba, Febuary 1966

Selected JEWLES from Meher Babaji

2:00 PM, 5/29/2006 Jay Babaji, just typed these wonderful saying of Babaji and put them in a ‘different order’ that appeared in BELOVED BABA, a Non-religious, Non-commercial magazine, Jan&Feb 1995…will post asap…… there is no power here in this café’, and can only do the off-line work. Had my lunch and ready to go on….. enjoy them… felt to make the following appear in all my Gmails, as ‘signature’! There, the repetitions are allowed and even useful (to remind man of His Godliness or divinity.)
Since I am in contact with many ‘non’ ‘Baba-lovers’ (we will have a talk about this word, ‘Baba-lover’, soon!) I hope it can inform/remind /inspire them of/for the Bhakti way!
Selected JEWLES from Meher Babaji
There is no Sadhana greater than love.
There is no law higher than love.
And there is no goal beyond love.
God and love are identical.

From the beginning of all beginnings,
I have been saying, I say it now,
and to the end of ends I will say it that
he who loves God becomes God.”

God alone is real,
and all else that you see and feel
is nothing but a series of nothings.

Except God all things are like a passing show.

God is never changing,
all else is ever-changing.

Births and deaths are illusory phenomena;

one really dies when one is born to live as God,
the Eternal who is beyond both birth and death.

On annihilating death in life by completely freeing consciousness of all illusion, man becomes God

in the naked truth of His own true existence.

God is for those who are not for themselves.

Not by fruitless surveys of the past,

nor by elusive longing for the future,
nor by enslavement to the fleeting moment;
but by staking everything for God,
is it possible for you to experience yourself as the illimitable ocean of love.
Here and nowhere else is the final solution of all your problems.

We must lose ourselves in order to find ourselves.
Thus loss itself is gain.
We must die to self, to live in God.
Thus death means life.
We must become completely void to be completely possessed by God.
Thus complete emptiness means absolute fullness.

Have love,
and you will conquer the lower and limited self
of cravings that veil your own true self as God.

The Internal silence of God

Baba says:

“External silence helps the inner silence
and only in internal silence is Baba found,
in profound inner silence.
I speak eternally.
The voice that is heard deep within the soul is my voice.”
