Once again I am very excited to have you involved with this powerful vision! The 3 core videos for the Introduction and Experience of Subtle Energy mini course are online. As this is a brand new offering, your feedback is most helpful to shaping this course. Having feedback on your experience of the material helps me to know how I can best serve you...
For some of you who have been following Darshan Baba for years now, and perhaps have read all the books, you may find this post very interesting!
You see, I left out any sort of "personal" details in the work I published as this was part of my spiritual discipline to move beyond the delusion of limited identity or ego. To this end I practiced for years speaking without using words like I or me, except for the use of I on rare occasions which were not in reference to the body or limited mind identity...
I remember an experience early on in life, where I was perceiving in two places at once, with one of the locations being high above my head with the feeling of being stuck near the tree tops and having difficulty anchoring into the body. Naturally I was fascinated with astral travel and out of body experiences when I heard of them from a friend and mother like figure later in life around the time of elementary school. To this end and goal I remember practicing sometime during middle school every night with breathing techniques, visualizations and affirmations.
Something just seemed to always call me to the subtle, the mysterious, and magical side of life from this really early age. Attending family reunion as a child I saw the various stages of life that we were all on. I saw that I too would be one of the old folks in time as the body prepared to return to the dust and earth from where it was on loan.
When I left home as a young man I was chanting songs of power as I drove: "Dancing with the spiral, deep within the One, on the path of Knowledge, Dancing to the heart drum..."
I knew that I must pursue something beyond the limits of material, that I must attain a treasure in life that could never be lost, which would not diminish, or be worthless in the face of death. With an intensity of blazing fire I entered into the path of sacred initiation again and again seeking with a longing which consumed the world I knew.
It was simply clear that to spend my life and energy in only material pursuit such as in "the american dream" would be a waste all together. No matter what material we gain it is ruled by the mark of impermanence. How silly we were all acting puffing up with pride, arrogance, or deflating ourselves with self pity depression and drama.
I made a choice to live a sacred life forever leaving the mundane behind!
After another 10 years of intense practice, and literally millions of repetitions of mantras, I entered into a state of awareness where I had no doubt that I was liberated.
I am free. I take responsibility and make my own choices here. I am the Master of my life! Understand that appearances can be misleading and this does not mean that I do not face any challenges or difficulty.
It is because of this trick of the mind (expecting enlightenment or liberation to be some pink airy fairy perfect fluffy super pleasure), that we keep holding ourselves back from recognizing our own freedom.
Remember that from the Upanishads we have the instruction and image of the two birds sitting in a tree, one of the birds representing the individual identity keeps grasping for what is "pleasure" and avoiding what is "pain", but the bird representing the Self keeps undisturbed grasping for nothing, rejecting nothing.
I am not going to be for you some super Guru who just by thinking of or gazing at the picture you are going to Attain the Supreme Form of Enlightenment. The Guru Tattva or Essence is already the One all-pervasive Guru, by which means if you truly surrender all of everything into That, the Self is Realized.
I have simply become adept in these practices by the Grace of my own Teacher's and Masters, and through many years of practice I have attained liberation with a honed and sharpened direct connection to the mystical within. I can point out the way, share tools, and experience that may bring you to the same state of awareness and empowerment in less time than it might take without the help. I have met with various practitioners who had been seeking for years but were still passing up these simple truths which would shave off the need for years of effort.
This is the exciting vision of the Siddha Life Mastery School:
Infinite Oceans of Blessings and Love!
