Ananda – the Bliss of the Self

pexels-photo-87232.jpegNotice how the ordinary pleasures are time based; there is a beginning and an end to the pleasure. You can only drink so much, you can only eat so much, you can only take so much substance. You have to go back for it again and again and again. However this ananda never ends. There is no beginning and end to it. It is ever new; it is joy ever new. This is why you can see mystics and yogis so happy in themselves, needing nothing. They may wear very little, but their faces shine with joy. They are not caught up in all the pleasure seeking. There is something else that excites them, that fulfills that need for pleasure.

Would you know it? It is there in the Self. When you capture it, you will never be excited about just the ordinary pleasure anymore. You will enjoy all the pleasures of the world for what they are, but never get caught in them. When they disappear, your joy does not disappear. When they appear, your joy is not increased. Your joy remains ever new. That ever new experience of bliss is in the Self. It is called ananda. Seek it! The more you come into that consciousness of freedom, moving away from the limitation and experiencing that expansive part of you, the more you are coming into anandaSri Vasudeva Day 6 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www.

Readiness for Change

Sometimes in our search, when we find that time seems to be coming for change, should we begin to look at the holistic picture and see that we are being prepared for something different? Should we listen for every sign, even from within, so that we can really unfold like the caterpillar into a butterfly, or like the seed into the tree? Can we really unfold as we are meant to? This is what readiness is about.

If you don’t feel that the time is ready for you, don’t make the step! Be comfortable with where you are. Continue to do that which strengthens you and wait for the moment. How do we know completely when we will be ready? The signs will be there: inner and outer. Do not make a decision that brings fear or insecurity. Wait until the moment comes. Look carefully, and all the forces of life and Nature will support you on this marvellous journey of unfolding. Sri Vasudeva


Can you Make a Decision in the Divine?

snow-beauty1.jpgAll the problems we have can be solved by the Divine entering our space. When you are confused, indecisive, if you only open your mind to a Great Source Being, you will experience profound responses entering into your space. It is because we are so wrapped up with the ego, ‘I want to solve this, I have to solve this, I have this knowledge, and I have this experience’. We do not allow ourselves to experience the grace of the space.

We need to think in the Divine, we need to reason in the Divine, we need to explore in the Divine, and we need to make decisions in the Divine. Not outside. Not separating our consciousness from the Divine but in the Divine.  Sri Vasudeva

Leading From Within

May we stay connected amidst all challenges – my Higher Self and I.


Where is your Centre of Being?

Non-attachment is not about the dryness of letting go of the world, that passionless existence. Non-attachment simply means not being driven by the world, but being in one’s own power and allowing yourself to be driven by inside. And when you are driven by inside, the drives are noble. They are uplifting instead of destructive. So where is your centre of being? Let it be in that centre of the subtle space. Sri Vasudeva


Acknowledge the Divine as Being the Source of your Existence

Happy New Year Everyone! Here is a wonderful way to make the new year a happy one.

Sri Vasudeva: 

Your will be done in and through me. I am the instrument, You are the Power. Hold me in Your space of grace. Nourish me, protect me, guide me, liberate me, that I may live in the constancy of Your presence and power within me, knowing that I am nothing without You, and I am everything because of You.


Master the Now

Live in the freshness of this moment.



May my Soul be Free of all Fetters

Sri Vasudeva

I greet a new day with the intention of being a blessing to my world today, with the intention that my eyes will see only Divine Order in the Play. And I will see it in every moment, knowing that the Universe is communicating with me through every response to my actions. What more can I ask for when I have the Universe holding me, supporting me, instructing me, showing me, guiding me, loving me. I pray only for liberation from all the bondages that hold me in ignorance. May my soul be free of all fetters. May I be aware of my existence in the Infinite and never stray from that awareness.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.


Choose Wisely

Sri Vasudeva:

When our intention is not precise, then the Universe is going to send us all kinds of possibilities. Then we think, “Ah, the Universe is sending all these things to me.” But it is sending them for us to select! We may follow one because it comes first, then we exclaim, “Oh, I thought the Universe was sending this for me!” Yes, it sent it for us to check it out and to decide if this is what we want…. or not.


Hold me, Carry me, Guide me, I am Yours

Sri Vasudeva:

“Help me to open my heart that I may release all the burdens that are there. That the love that is within may finally be free.”

“I rest my being in you Oh Divine One.  Hold me, carry me, guide me, I am Yours. Cleanse me, transform me, purify me. Lead me to the Light. Let me know I am only You. You and I are One. In my ignorance I think that I am the doer but in truth, You are. I make myself transparent. I make myself clear that you can flow in and through me without any obstruction. You are my Light. I have no need for any other, nor do I need to create any belief about You. Come, take over my space, have compassion on me O Lord. Come and dwell within my being. Without You life is so painful and lonely. Fill my empty vessel with your love.”
