Openness & the Art of Exploration


I am going to assume that you have the curiosity to know and that you are willing to investigate more. I am going to assume that you have the strong desire to learn and to grow, so that you are very interested in learning the art of exploration.

One of the powerful qualities of our consciousness is that it is able to look at an experience objectively; even whilst we are experiencing something, there is a part of us that can observe it. But sometimes we become so caught up in the experience that we limit the power of observation to what we want to experience, what we want to know, and we are not fully open to all possibilities. So in critically observing – for our development, for our growth, for our learning – it is important to always be open and not think that we know. We always like to operate with the idea, “I know.” Even if we want to learn a little more, we think we know exactly how to learn that little more. Some of us want to direct our process and even make it happen the way we want to make it happen.

So learn to be open – even though you have a good knowledge of something, it is always extremely important to say, “I am sure that I am not seeing everything” – and to be humble enough to observe the Universe and all the information your Universe is bringing towards you, being completely open to every communication that is coming to you.

Now apply that to yourself; are you open? When you listen, are you continuously open? When somebody is speaking to us, often we are already thinking, concluding and preparing our response. It requires listening; having ideas, but keeping them in suspension, no judgement, no conclusion. Even if ideas are coming and we want to conclude, to hold that space of being completely open.

I love to listen to everyone, trying to see more. Whenever the tendency from the conditioned mind is to make me believe,  I check it and say “No, open up a little more,”  I am always willing to listen to my Universe. And no voice is insignificant. So listen to everyone.         Sri Vasudeva


Non-judgment brings Lightness of Being


When you are not caught in a judgment, there is a feeling that you are free.                There is a lightness that comes, so that you can really navigate, you can float in the space.                                                                                                                             The moment the mind is not tied to anything, there is a freedom in the consciousness.  Sri Vasudeva

How to Witness the Human Experience

feet-619399_960_720Let us just observe the consciousness space in which the “I” is having an experience. Holding the intention to have the fullest experience of being in the human experience.

We would like to be in a space of no judgment, so do not label your thoughts when they arise. Do not be carried away by them. Observe them, let them come, let them go until the mind becomes truly silent. 

And in that silent space, begin to observe the grossness of the physical body. It is the body that you have in this lifetime. It is a body that your soul carries in its being. Free the mind of judgment as you observe the body. Accept it for what it is. Your joy should be how to transform the experience of the body through your subtle being. So you are identifying with the physical body because you are using your mind to hold your body in its space of observation.

The ego is having the experience of a human body, the experience of being of a certain gender; male, female. It is having the experience of a field of vitality that I call the core of the physical body, and the experience of whether the body is vital or lacking in vitality. The ego is having an emotional experience. The ego will have an experience of speaking or singing, of communication, of using the voice. It will have the experience of listening using the ear. It will have the experience of the human brain and how the thought can influence the brain and the mind.


“There is lack of vitality in me, or there is too much vitality in me. There is sadness in me, and happiness in me.” You need to observe these things. You need to see how they feature in your space because they are important, they affect your well-being, how you feel. But can you witness them in a way of not becoming caught in them? That is where the power is; in the non-judgmental nature of witnessing. Only when you are witnessing from a place of no judgment can you really see things in their entirety. The moment you are caught in one aspect, then you may lose the sense or the awareness of the whole. So in your observing, you need to observe the discriminating mind and whether it is caught up in judgment, limiting the experience that you are having.

Freedom Is the Goal

Unconditional loving, no boundaries, non-judgemental thinking, present moment awareness, harmonizing with every level of being. Inner peace …. acceptance at every level.

“To live in limitless being is my goal. I seek to be free.”  Sri Vasudeva
