Observation can Create an Inner Shift


To observe means to look carefully at a particular object.. There is an observing consciousness, but the one that is observing can shift its centre of observation, its centre of viewing, its centre of experiencing can shift. The quality of the observing shifts, but the observer and the observing remain.

The one who is observing can become more detached in the observation and more and more centred in a Divine Space. That brings a big transformation in the one who is observing. The quality of the consciousness of the observer changes, not the observer, not the observing, not the observed,  but the quality of the one who is looking. By that I mean the ego is the one who observes so the quality of the ego changes; the quality of this ‘’I’’, of this observer is changing. Sri Vasudeva

Humbly Acknowledge that Great Power Inside

Observe that Self inside of you that you are trying to uncover, trying to know fully and to unite with. It is just behind your thoughts. It is behind your emotions. It is behind your vitality. It is right there. It is quiet, silent. It is ever loving. It is holding you, even when you do not know it. Sri Vasudeva

Do We Need to Detach from Loved Ones?


The Self has love for all.

The idea is not to be caught up in the object of loving but to give attention to the experience of love and where it comes from and what love truly is.  Because when you have true love within your being, that love will manifest towards all.                                 Sri Vasudeva

Keys to Transformation


 If you want to learn something, if you want to transform weaknesses into strength, if you want to transform consciousness then you need the discipline of protecting yourself from indisciplined ways.  Discipline is a protection.  It holds you and your objective in focus.  And it helps you to reprogram your brain and nervous system so that you can be supported by the physical body.  You need the consistency of doing.

So there we have four “D’s” that are important in developing the qualities and skills that are required for your meditation: strong desire, detachment, discrimination and discipline.

It is wise for the seeker to remember these four “D’s”: a strong desire for self-transformation; detachment to give the power of proper observation; discrimination so we can reason out in the space how to transform ourselves, and discipline to sustain our focus and efforts. Sri Vasudeva

Let is sit for this guided meditation on Day 11 of the 21 day series.




Jump Beyond the Intellect

What is it that cannot be perceived but which if you perceive, all will be known or perceived? What is the power behind the eyes? What is the power behind the voice? What is the power behind the mind? What is the power behind the emotion? What is it that is there, that is operating within you, but which you are not perceiving? Or rather, it is in your experience, but not in your perception.

You are using the mind obviously, and you are having a mental experience, but you cannot see the mind apart from who you are. You cannot see that that which you are, is the one that is operating the mind. So there has to be a switch in perception. There has to be a shift in seeing, a shift in consciousness, and that is what we are seeking, a shift in perception. How do we get that?


Those of you who can see two forms in the same picture have to disengage from one to see the other. When we begin this disengagement from the senses, if we can, it allows us to engage in another way of seeing. That is why we spoke about dispassion yesterday and vairagya, detaching. Patanjali called it pratyahara. It is a withdrawal of the energy and attention from the senses. That is quite a challenging task, so in the meditation we need to change the way we are perceiving.

It cannot be known by the mind, but That which gives the mind the power to think. Mind has to humble, because it is outside of the intellectual grasping. You are seeking That which can only be had by direct perception, so you need to make the jump beyond the intellect. Now you can understand why Zen Masters empty the mind completely; no label, no image, no thought, because no thought can capture it, no image can capture it. They clear the mind and  hold the mind vacant, moving away from every label, every thought, with humility to That which is beyond, that the truth will reveal itself in the being. Sri Vasudeva Day 13 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www. blue-star.org

Be a Wise Seeker


Even as we are involved in the Māyā, the prayer should constantly be there, whether it is verbalized or not. “Let me see more, let me understand more, I want wisdom in this play.”

So we should have that unceasing desire, we should keep the company of those who are more evolved on the journey, and we should keep friends with the discriminating power, the intellect, using the intellect in the light. The prayer of the Gayatri is to use the intellect in the light, not just in the play of the senses, not just in the seeking and finding in the material world, but we should open up to the intellect to ask, “Who am I? Bring light to my reasoning power that I can search for who am I in this play.” We need that discriminating power that constantly reminds us of the changing nature of the world, and the need to seek for That which is unchanging. We need that, vivek it is called; that discriminating power.

That discriminating power should help us to disengage more and more from the pull of the Māyā, and that is vairagya; we want that dispassion, that ability to detach from the play. We need vivek and vairagya in the play. You pray for that every morning in the Guru Gita. You are chanting the Guru Gita every day (the Guru Gita is like a wish fulfilling tree, it says in one verse) to cleanse the mind of the worldly impurities and to make those good dreams come true.

The seeking is important. In the seeking, we will find. So be a wise seeker and seek after that which is real, not unreal. “Lay your treasures in Heaven, not on earth, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be;” the words of the Christ.

So this is Day 12. “Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you.”

Be careful of what you think of. Keep the company of the wise. Develop the qualities of vivek and vairagya, discrimination as to what is unreal and the possibility of what is real, and detachment from the world that pulls us in the Maya. Be a wise seeker.
