Leave the Unreal for the Real

In this opening night teaching (from the retreat, “Overcoming Death”), Shunyamurti delves deeply into the true meaning behind overcoming the illusion of death, and how the realization of immortality—because what is never born can never die—will help bring the living truth to a dying world, the price of which is ego death, the remains of which is the Real.

Immortality and the Law of Love

Shunyamurti reads again from Swami Ramdas, a section entitled "Immortality is the Birthright of Mankind", commenting that all Kali Yuga religions focus on the attainment of immortality, that we have to give up what's false in the folk inflections of religion, that we must become egoless manifestations of virtue, that forms of limited love must be sacrificed for unlimited love, that we must be willfully ignorant as Truth is what we are, and that we must surrender to Source to be reborn.

Spirituality in a State of Exception

Shunyamurti explains that nonduality, direct realization are very difficult for the ego to grasp, mentioning Kali Yuga, and, from the work of Giorgio Agamben, that spirituality is in a state of exception, then goes on to speak of the distinction between Zoe and Bios, and the implications of the social alienation created by the response to Covid-19.

Beat the Infernal Internal System

Shunyamurti jests that he is writing a science fiction novel called "Escape from Tartarus", which is about how to get out the hell realm of the ego, and goes on to discuss the ideas of the German theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher, of the yearning for the infinite as well as absolute dependency on God, as well as how to break free of illusory dependencies in order to reach true liberation.

The Real Cause of Suffering and Its Transformation

In this module teaching, Shunyamurti outlines, as a fairy tale, and then maps the cause of suffering from incarnation to redemption, through fear, anger, desire, sorrow, and finally back to desire for love of God that brings the joyous redemption of all beings to awaken as serve as healing vessels in this world of suffering, which he describes in its current state using current events to express the urgency of this return to divine love and light.

Restoring Our Planetary Energy Field

In this satsang teaching, recorded during the Healing with Truth retreat, Shunyamurti explains that everything is a function of the VFC level—the vibrational frequency of consciousness—the capacity to regulate, modulate, raise, and sometimes lower that frequency will determine one's capacity to successfully navigate reality, and thus, the key to transformation.

Words Cannot Transmit Understanding

In this powerful Early Morning Ashram Meditation Teaching, Shunyamurti reads from "Cultivating the Empty Field" (the writings of Hongzhi), a section entitled "With Total Trust, Roam and Play in Samadhi", which remarks on emptying out any hope of being an illusory entity with its "warm and cozy" comforts, that understanding cannot be transmitted through scripture, and one has to let go of even the purest beliefs, and that every fragment of the dream reflects infinite facets of the Supreme.

Brahmachari:

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.

Satsang:

Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.

Teleological:

Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
