Q & A: Selflessness, Meditation, Spirituality

In today’s morning satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) takes inquiries from Inner Awakening participants. One attendee asks how best to inspire others to receive Paramahamsa’s teachings. Paramahamsa replies that when we offer ourselves in compassion and desire to help others, those who are interested will just catch fire. A second attendee asks for explanation of “inner space” and wants to know when she will experience inner silence. Paramahamsa answers that when we close our eyes, what we feel as “me” is our inner space; and that silence can be experienced whenever we truly wish it. The final questioner wants to know whether greed is a danger on the spiritual path. Paramahamsa replies that if greed motivates us to progress on our path, doing required practice and exercise, then it is useful. Otherwise it is just negative selfishness.

How to Heal the Hurt Through Forgiveness

When you’ve been hurt by someone, it’s common to feel resentful. You may harbor this resentment for years, perhaps waiting for an apology or for something to happen that would “right the wrong.” Forgiveness may seem impossible, as if it would be disloyal to yourself to even consider forgiving those who hurt you.

Time may only make you more upset, offended, cynical, or detached. You might direct your resentment onto other people who don’t deserve it. As fair as it is to feel hurt over the incident, it may seem as though you are mired in the misery and resentment of the situation without relief.

Eventually, as you notice how toxic and damaging resentment is, you might want some relief. Although it is harder, fortunately you can forgive people without receiving an apology. You may begin to realize that forgiveness does not mean that what had happened is all right; but rather, that, as you are forgiving, you can move on from hurtful events.

First, you must stop blaming yourself for other people’s inappropriate behavior, and acknowledge that they really hurt you. Begin to abandon the experience of acting like a victim and acknowledge that you didn’t deserve their disrespectful behavior. Forgive yourself for any role you played in the incident, and recognize that you did indeed survive the experience.

And last, but perhaps the most difficult part of the process, is your recognition that the person who has hurt you has probably had personal experiences in their life that have resulted in their behavior. They probably would have acted in a different way if their life were more nurturing past to develop understanding and wisdom. Once you are able to understand that, the painful experience and how it relates to your life will make more sense, and you can appreciate the learning experience that resulted from the situation.

You will finally realize the powerful gift that forgiveness is as you complete the healing process. You will experience relief at being able to let your resentment go and you will be able to make more room in your life for consideration and compassion. If you would like to read more about forgiveness I would recommend Sidney and Suzanne Simon’s book “Forgiveness: How to Make Peace With Your Past and Get On With Your Life.

RE: THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS (FOR CHRISTIANS ONLY)

Response to: www.youtube.com Anton is presumptuous while, once again, using terms like “this is” and “we are” etc, when speaking about Christianity and death. It seems that his whole premises are built upon his own assumptions, history or knowledge base about what and/or how the world can be gazed upon. He speaks about ‘expiation of guilty’ & ‘Death denial’ as if these topics aren’t rooted within a narrow(ing) class of considerations, that certainly does not include all of humanity nor all human sagas. In fact Anton’s positing such ideas IS in such an orientation which continues the narrowing of ‘the audience’ whom such similar theocratic considerations stem, concur & abide with the ones he himself sees, conflicts and overcame. Anton’s position as professor bleeds into his social youtube presentations in the same “above the student” fashion which he applies to his views and the public at large. The strain of recognizing him as an accepted and established authority on many matters is evident when his posture alongside his presumptive knowledge set interacts with other persons whom are not complimentary to his posture. In other words when Anton speaks downward to the public and speaks in an authoritative dogmatic “this is the case” sort of manner when obvious exceptions to his sentiments can be observed and spoken of, his static positioning yields much friction and consequently his stature become eroded in one area and bloated in another.

Spiritual Materialism - Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche -Shambhala

www.youtube.com Enlightenment is the highest thing that we could ever achieve … We all know that… But at the same time we have a lot of problems with that. So presenting the teaching of spirituality properly, that you have to have very good understanding of basic sanity. And also you have to have a good understanding of basic materialism, spiritually.
