The spiritual journey to love, wisdom and the seeking for truth by overcoming vasanas (sensory desires) - imprints on our minds to be activated with certain events

Since the Kumbh mela of 2013 when I was ready to renounce the world of illusions and wear saffron,  I reentered everyday life after 6 years of spiritual wandering. Many of you may or may not know that divine intervention took charge (miracles that will be revealed later in a biography of the spiritual awakening by this body) and made me see that sannyas is not one who just wears saffron in colour and cloth and rituals,  and is an ordinary person who has let go of sensory desires and lives in an elevated expansion of awareness at all times in a state of samadhi and offers only love and wisdom which is a happening and not of the mind. Sannyas is not always required to live as awareness, each person must consider this for themselves. This living is harder than living as a sannyas in an ashram!



''Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
You will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms, nor synagogues, nor in cathedrals:
not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables,
When you really look for me, you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.'' - Kabir




However its this body's dharma and now here I Am as a Yogi living amongst the waves as the ocean. There is no ego here its the I AM, making money from it is not its intention, to spread conscious aware living is its intention. Till my last breath I am that. Soham, incidentally this mantra was given to me at Sivananda yoga in trivandrum India 16 years ago, when I decided Yoga is my life's practice, which I have been doing diligently since the last 16 years, together with meditation.

As i use this intellect of the mind to write this aware of the contradictory level of words and thoughts, i feel if it serves one reader who is on this spiritual journey it is of service, hence this way of now revealing the spiritual journey, which is ongoing even for the gurus and especially so called enlightened masters! In fact its this that has made me decide to finally share my own journey to truth as love and wisdom ahead of the biography book, which will come but not yet its not its time.

The 2 vasanas personally encountered upon re-enetering since 2013 are financial success through spirituality and  divine relationship, to write this on paper makes me smile, a thousand blessings to the divinity and love that works through this body to reveal these vasanas.

“Having recognized the Lord within, my thoughts rest only in Him. Now wherever I cast my eyes, I see none else but Him.... Since realization came, here, there, everywhere the Lord alone I see.” Kabir

Yes many know  that I have been using this in rather a lot of ways in my works over the years and even went along and paid handsome sums of money to charlatan get rich entrepreneur gurus who uses spiritual language, be aware of such types, they cannot teach where they are not at, this level of awareness or samadhi state. There is no arrogance or ego here simply a warning to other spiritual seekers who also have this vasana of success!

Upon seeing the vasana you eliminate it, quite simple, yet they are our blind spots on the spiritual journey, and we may repeat the pattern so many times in new forms and objects until we tire of this repetition in our lives and then grace takes over and showers a million blessings to guide as happened to this body.

The divine relationship can never occur, period. Soul mate does not exist accept this. Its the play of our vasanas that occurs nothing more than that and doomed to discourage a spiritual journey into a peak valley encounter in their relationships. We may share our divine love in the form of human encounters and accept that it will have a beginning and an end and its a choice to be with that form as a vasana or not, there is no elevation of the spirit arising from these divine love seeking relationships. Divine love arises from within oneself and is evermore present at all times. The hallmark is that love is not a fixed way of being, that niceness or that sweet type personality, you could be ferocious as a lion and have divine love.

Go love
where the eyes are farthest
love in all the ways
that tricks of your mind collapse
