Practice Without Integration is a Waste, by Krishna Das

 What I have learned from the Holistic Scientist which is helping me in my daily life is "If we will observe, the first effect starts within oneself. Apart from bad feelings for others, one’s happiness inside is disturbed. When we say words that hurt, give bad opinion, or have a clash with someone, we always get disturbed first.”. That is why Adjust everywhere is a good mantra with the understanding that world is an echo of your past and you are wholly responsible for what is happening. Other people are just messangers. What goes around comes around.

 We have been discussing all relative things which are temporary and perishable. The important thing is the thought behind what we do and how we process the information internally as have been pointed out by our friends. Then comes the opinion part. If we process the information in a negative way then we process it negatively and our opinion comes out negative. On the flip side if we process it positively then our opinion comes out positive. The process part is based on our beliefs. We have to change our beliefs that we want to be positive in all circumstances, in seeing, hearing, smelling, touch and thoughts no matter what. This can be our mantra. This would lead to inner happiness. This is certainly under our own realm.

It is said that things don't cling  to us....we cling to them. Many of our friends have experienced it from their comments and changed their beliefs to be happy. Then the relative things will automatically be placed in a positive way whether it is the other person, object, interaction or our own thoughts or reactions.

It is said that Opinion is the Father of Mind, and the Language is the Mother of Mind. Due to circumstantial forces and prevailing situations, a person is placed in, opinions are incessantly formed consciously or unconsciously.  These opinions that form in the mind may be on any number of subjects, such as people, world, time, nation, religion, sect, society, creed, etc.  Thus the mind becomes the cause of bondage to worldly life.  It is our own opinion that binds us, and not things external to oneself or other people. Positivity is the key to happiness in imperfection situations. This way there is no compromise in the result of one's work.

 The world itself is perfect. If you look at it from scientific view point of nature there is precision in everything which is controlled by nature. Anything which does not follow law of nature becomes imperfect. Having said such even the imperfection in our life is to attain perfection. Perfection that is to be reached is the inner perfection and primary one thing is not to hurt  or cause someone to hurt or support someone hurting even slightly, the ego of any living being.

 Without imperfection there is no perfection. Once we see imperfection we strive for perfection. Once we realize that we have imperfection in whatever ways i.e. outer in materialistic world we learn from our imperfection and resolution for perfection. In the same way if we discover imperfection inside us, we try for perfection. Eventually we try to find who and what is perfect internally and learning ways of perfection. That way we complete the outer and inner review of perfection.

 One has to have in place all the checks and balances for execution of perfection.  In addition one has to be diligent , vigilant in every step of execution and  have all the intent to do a perfect job or expectation of a perfect job. When a imperfection occurs then there has to a plan to review the root cause and implement changes and move on with accepting perfection. I have found out that people who makes mistakes feel bad themselves so we have to stress perfection and not chastise  people, make them aware of the imperfection and the lessons learned.

 What I have learned from Holistic Science is always be positive and even in a negative situation there is positivity. Things happen so one has to learn from it and move on. I am retired now but in my profession there were times where quality of workmanship was missed and we had issues in design and or during construction. Things happened with all the checks and balances in place so first thing you do so to make a plan of recovery without blaming anyone and more on and then do the root cause analysis and implement lessons learned. This helps me in my life tremendously to be calm and serene internally. 

 

Deep Inquiry: Not for the Faint of Heart, by Gangaji

FaceBook  On Jan 21, 2014 Rajnikant wrote:

 Inquiry and observe are two different functions. Inquiry is to try to find out about a particular thing. It is done when one has free time and is in pursuit of spiritual elevation. There will be always questions as to why, what, how etc. which after reading one will have to set time to inquire from within what you are searching for and what you have read. Reading is at an intellect level where as inquiry in this case is at the heart level. Observe can be taken in two ways. First one is what Ganoba has written about. One sits and watches goes thru the mind. The other one is to sit in observation something which is bugging you and see what kinds of thoughts or pictures come about that topic so you can then decide how to deal with it. This is my understanding from Holistic Science which is the science of the vitragas (Vitrag  = enlightened spiritual masters who have achieved  perfect knowledge by conquering anger, pride, deceit, and desire).

The center is so unique that it is totally impartial and therefore will accept everyone's viewpoint and will not enforce one is right and one is wrong. It will accept everyone.

 One who is void of anger, pride, attachments and greed is the one. He would not bat an eye when insulted. He would lead you to what he has in him without any expecting anything in return. He will not make you a disciple since he does not want to be a guru. He is at the center so he will show you the center and then you are own your to open out at the center. He will be there for you to ask question and again there is no any other expectations. His center has been lighted so he lights your center without any expectations and then it is upto you to make the light full. He is experienced and will talk from experience.

 Very well said David. We are one at the center and we need to learn to interact at the center and then oneness can be felt and achieved. We are the world itself within us and therefore we do have an impact. If we learn to live for others and not hurt any living being that is what human beings are for and then we can get nearer and nearer to the center. Then we will know meet some one who is at the center and show us the center. Then we will know who am i? Knowing the center will dissolve the ego.

 Always Love put it rightly. Each morning we should resolve to carry ours and any other crosses that come across without hurting anyone including oneself. The mantra can be , "I will be very positive today, not hurt anyone, help myself first and then others with happiness". We are always put in circumstances which comes and we cannot do anything since it comes so it should be our firm belief that we will make the best out of it and in particular will not get affected negatively so we help our self and any others we interact with no matter what the external circumstances are. We need a resolution that we do every morning and then it will start automatically working for a rich inner living.

 Kristin wrote "I am living in an environment which causes external stress and eventually that affects my internal peace". We need to define external stress since stress is a due to our beliefs of not liking a particulate situation or an interaction. Our beliefs are in the mind which is internal. So, what is the best way to handle such an external event? The way i learned from Holistic Science  is that any adverse situation we have to make the best out of it since it is teaching us and it is redemption and challenging time. Why should a situation make me miserable? I can always turn it around. So, one has to say ok this is it how can I see positivity in it and why I do not like it or why it happened. I want to be happy no matter what. Once you start inner reflection, you will get an answer and you will change your belief. If you see good in everything and everyone you will feel good. By the same token when you are feeling good and happy you can also examine internally why you are in such a state and you will learn which will help you in adverse cases. Be posititve and you will feel great. Good luck and all the very very best.

 Conrad has very nicely summarized it. Even though we all are one at one center point, we need to recognize that each one is an individual and has his/her own beliefs. My take from Holistic Science is that everyone is right from his/her view point. This would lead to oneness. If we have a belief to adjust everywhere and avoid clash which is an internal belief, then it will work like a charm in the external surroundings and one will be very happy. If the gill is a happy heart which is again internal, then it will reflect externally. Krzyst also provided a experience of inner meditation which has helped inner and outer unity. With the right inner belief, the outer can be handled very satisfactorily and amicably.

I agree with you that both harmony is very important.

From that very moment one is happy and goes on happily preparation of the celebration. That happiness is spread among others who join the preparation and so on.

 It is my understanding from Holistic Inner science that all information flows thru mind, body and speech. Certain aspects are governed by what you perceive and then the information goes internally and processed and then action takes place and there are circumstances when inner thoughts are sprouted based on many evidences and then action takes place after the information is processed thru mind, sub-conscious, and intellect. Invariably all information is processed internal for any reaction that happens. If one's reaction is due to surrounding, where does the reaction occurs and how is it processed? The inner function of the body is responsible. The inner functions are internal to the body where as seeing, touch,hearing, smelling, and tasting are external whose reaction is processed internally and then felt outwardly.

 There seems a contradiction that  this state cannot be reached merely by inner work and that his state of harmony depends entirely on his harmony with his surroundings. Harmony by itself is inner work by itself. If inner thought says he/she does don't like this and that of the surrounding of things or people then his harmony will be broken inside and he may make non-positive comments . Thus breaking one's inner harmony and outside harmony. If one learns that everyone is correct from his/her view points , all surroundings are but natural, that everyone is a nice person and everything is nice from within then he/she will be in harmony with himself/ herself first internally and then automatically with surrounding. Change in belief is needed and that is the work of inside.

Sis Ashaben also talks of connecting with yourself . Who is yourself and what is the mechanism of connection? Following are the diamonds which are given by the Gnani Purush that will help:
Universal Projections for Rich Inner Life
 
1.    Hearty decisions with ardent prayers for inner
transformation and rich inner living
 
Let my mind, speech, body not hurt any living being
 in the world even to slightest extent and
 let my mind, speech, body be used to oblige others.
 (Yog, upayogo paropakaraya.’)

2.    The Essence of all Scriptures as given by
the experienced  self –realized Holistic Scientist
as 9 Diamonds for Divine Code of Conducts. To be read
three times a day to make these wishes and then to keep
internally for implementation in daily life.
 
1st of 9 Nine Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
 as would restrain me from hurting,  causing someone
to hurt or supporting someone hurting  even slightly the
ego of any living being.
May you bless me with such an inner strength in the philosophy
 of relative pluralism (syadvad) in speech, conduct and thinking
as would restrain me from hurting even slightly, the ego of any living being.
 
Explanation-
-Ego means ‘I am’ that is to say ‘I am name bearer’. Ego is very existence
 or life for all human beings. Only two things happen in interactive dealings,
either Ego is boosted or hurt. No one can be happy by hurting anyone’s ego.
Whenever our ego is hurt by our mind, speech or body we would have
 inner disturbance first and in addition there would be reactionary behavior,
 echo or revengeful attitude from one whose ego is hurt. One who would not
hurt anyone’s ego anytime would straight away attain the ultimate blissful state.
So this first code of conduct is of prime significance.
- ‘Syadvad’ means a vision, an all-embracing approach that would take into
 account all different view-points in a situation and would not hurt anyone’s view-point. It enables
 one to know by what angle and to what extent it is correct. It also enables
one to know the ultimate correctness. Everyone is correct by his/her own
view-point and understanding, and there is some truth in each of the view-points.
Only through ‘syadvad’ one can succeed in not hurting any one’s ego or view-point.
In simpler words one asks for inner strength of balanced thinking, speech or act.
 
 
2nd of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such infinite inner strength so as not to hurt, nor cause
someone to hurt, nor support anyone hurting even to the slightest extent,
the foundation or view-point of any religion or faith.
Bless me with such an infinite inner strength in the philosophy
 of relative pluralism (syadvad) in speech, conduct and thinking
 as would restrain me from hurting any of religious view-points or beliefs.
 
Explanation-
As per Holistic/ Vitrag science, there are several (fourteen lac) layers
of human beings depending on belief planes and inner development.
All have different developments. As there are many classes from K.G .
to College and University degree, so are standards in spiritual
 development too. And according to the standard, the person will get
along with a particular religion or preacher. So all religions are correct
 but not the same!
 
 
3rd of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me from uttering untrue adverse things,
from offending or showing disregard (disrespect) to any
 preacher, monk, nun or a religious head.
 
Explanation –
In true sense any monk, nun, preacher or religious head
 tries to show some light to mankind. Uttering untrue adverse
 things means to misrepresent or tell which is not there.
 
4th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
 as would not make me dislike or hate any living being
to the slightest extent, nor cause anyone nor
support anyone doing so.
 
Explanation-
When we hate or dislike anyone, we see the packing (outer body)
and don’t see the material (pure self) inside. Moreover it
reflects back on our own self. Indifference that is disregard
with a dislike and hatred or contempt are two main faults
one may have towards any living being. One who can get
rid of these two would attain very high state of being.
 
5th of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength as
would restrain me from speaking, causing someone to
 speak or supporting someone speaking harsh, hurtful
language or language of rivalry to anyone. Give me inner
strength to speak soft, sober, soothing language even if
someone is speaking harsh, hurtful, egoistic or biting language.
 
Explanation-
In present times most of the bondages are due to language
or speech only. Speech is such that it hurts others, pierces
through heart or may lead to rivalry and revengeful attitude.
Words can lead to wars and words can also resolve wars.
One should have a continuous decision and ardent desire
(‘bhavna’) as to how speech can be improved, how it can become
sweet, sober and soothing, making others happy. 
 
6th  of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me having faults, desires, gestures
or thoughts of sensuality or passion towards any
 gender-male, female or neuter. Give me the supreme
strength so as to be free of sensual or passionate
attitudes or perversions forever.
 
Explanation-
-Here focus is to abstain from carnal deeds or sensual/sexual
misendeavours of all kinds by mind, speech and body both
directly and indirectly. One has human right to get involved
in sensual pleasures with one’s own lawful spouse.
But any thought, act or even a passionate stare towards anyone
 else is a serious fault. Everyone lawfully belongs to someone.
Today it forms a major weakness or a major binding factor, so
 one should be aware of it.
- Sensual pleasures have been considered to be the best in
 the world. But really speaking, the happiness of pure soul
surpasses all the sensual pleasures. Desire for sensual pleasures
 is one of the principal causes of bondage to humans.
 Yet the Vitrag (one who is totally free from attachments (raga)
 and aversions (dewsha) ) do not object when it is in normality
and with your lawful spouse to whom you are married.
To keep ourselves pure, it is utmost necessary to pray daily for
such strength and it is especially pertinent in present time.
 
7th of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
to control my excessive temptation towards any relish
or taste of food? Give me the strength to take food
having balance of all tastes.
 
Explanation-
It is said that all six tastes are necessary to maintain health.
 (They are bitter, chilly, sour, salty, astringent and sweet)
Imbalance, i.e. excess of one or absence of the other may
affect harmony. So it is advisable to take all the six tastes
in proper proportions.
 
8th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me from uttering untrue adverse things,
from offending or showing disregard towards any
 being-living or dead, in one’s presence or absence.
 
Explanation-
Doing any such thing towards anyone is going to affect the self-first.
 
 
 
9th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
for being instrumental in welfare of the world that is
common good of mankind as a whole?
 
Explanation-
Our own welfare is automatically included in our wishing
for the welfare of the world.
 
You have to resolve to act according these Divine codes of conduct
And pray heartily at least three times a day. This will be the planting
of the seeds and hence such behavior would result as fruit or effect.

 Dear Bijaybhai  very rightly said. In this Kali Yuga where there is no oneness of mind, body and speech it is very difficult to comprehend. That is why we need a Gyani as stated by Krishna Bhagwan who can lead the way. As I wrote earlier the Gyani or the Vitrage Scientist has stated that we are in one of the four meditation state all the time and if we understand them then we will understand how karmas are created and how they are discharged.

 Excellent article. Awareness is the key aspect especially who is aware of what. Based on Holistic science i.e. Vitrag Vignan one needs to know who am I from a Gyani Purush and then this awareness becomes really meaningful. The seer and knower needs to be separate from the function of the body. Really one is in a meditative state all the time in the thought process in any of the four ways. 1. Arta  Dhyan - Painful to one self i.e. worrying, feeling sorry, etc..2.  Raudra Dhyan - when you think of snatching happiness of others by hurting their egos thru anger, pride, maya & deceit, greed. 3. Dharma Dhyan - state of peace & tranquility in all situation. 4. Shukla dhyan - to be conscious that "I am the Pure Soul". These 4 states are the binding karmas for the next life. Any other meditation done is by the body itself and the results in gain in body functions in the present life which is definately useful but  NOT for  the ultimate goal of life of liberation.

 Rightly said that we need to avoid getting stuck in our feelings or blaming others for causing our feeling. Holistic Scientist has said that "Suffer is at fault". Recognize without any doubts that the nature is very balanced and just in its dealings with all, in every aspect of life. So, you will not be punished if it is not your fault. Conversely, if you are suffering, then it must be your fault despite the circumstantial evidences that suggest otherwise. Accept your own fault, ask for forgiveness and do not crane revenge. With this realization one will be able to reconcile an interaction and not get emotional.

 Understanding of emotions is very important. Once the root cause of emotions are understood, then emotions will subside and then the tone will make a great impact on the other person. It is very important that emotions do not hurt the ego of other person. That can only happen if you deal with the other person without your ego on the high string. A person who knows 'who am I ' can detach away from emotion since he can see who the doer is. Good spiritual practice is to discover the world within.
