This Online Ashram is under the direction of Sat Guru Swami G. It is a very potent Path of Kundalini whereby those who are ready to face their fears can move forward to Realization by following the Instruction and Practices of GuruSwamiG. In this ashram seekers come and seek Wisdom and ask questions and have the opportunity to get answers from Guru Swami G that break through the ego (conditioned mind)....not support ego. One needs to be strong and stable for this to occur.
This is NOT THERAPY and is NOT A SUPPORT GROUP. If one is looking for psychological help, a cure for physical or psychological problems or a support group actvity, this is not the place and one will be asked to leave and encouraged to seek the appropriate psychological and/or physical help to create and maintain stability in their lives.
For those seeking to find out more about this path, the procedure is to first join the Chat Group: Asking_the_Sadhakas_of_Swami-G . It is here that you are able to interact with the students and sadhakas of Guru G and ask them about Swami-G and the path that is offered here. This is an opportunity for new joins that are not firmly ready for this path and still are doing practices elsewhere to find out what is offered here. Part of walking this path is being open - the questions you have may be of value to others - so all emails are subject to being posted as a way of helping other.
What a Guru Gives and What a Guru Doesn't Give The Guru is the ship that ferries one across the waters ---- but in order for this to take place the sadhakas have to actually get on the ship. There is so much misunderstanding in place by people coming into this Online Ashram.
Guru is the ship and practices are the oars --- but it takes the Sadhaka to follow the map and directions of pointings and to use the oars of the pratices to move forward. One can sit in the ship and go nowhere when you are expecting the ship to have automatic oar rowing, or if you only use one oar all that will happen is the Sadhaka will go in circles.
If Gurus could hand Realization to Sadhakas like an object then anyone that has ever gone to a Guru would be Enlightened.... but that is not the case.... Realization and Enlightenment have been a very rare happening --- but here things are breaking apart and there has and continues to be unlike anything in history to date.... Sage after Sage is coming into the world --- and more are ready to explode onto the scene. This is an exciting event in history.
If a Guru in past history had only one or two that entered Realization then their life mission was a success and a Blessing to humanity... So HOW in the world can people get the idea that any Guru is responsible for your progress or that Realization may be assured to any? Realization happens by GRACE.
A Guru has no control over:
Ones willingness to actually do what is given
Entering into Bhakti versus mind stuff
Your past karmic baggage
Ones over all seeing of the Admonitions as Grace
ON Resistance --- in working with Energy a resistance in the wire and Heat Builds --- So when there is heavy resistance a heating up takes place heating of the emotions or energies felt in the form.... Energy travels the path of least resistance... So you want to move forward then Surrender and Understand that what is being given in the way of Practices When done From the Heart in All Love and Respect moves one forward Rapidly....
To build up resistance to the Guru and to the pointings only serves to Heat up the situation and block the flow of energy.... Got It ? This blocks the Grace that could be coming through....
If one does the practices grudgingly and not from within a Heart of Loving Acceptance of knowing that Grace is in motion – then simply you are by your own hand bringing **stagnation*** and stopping the flow of Grace which could be in place....
A Guru Gives
Any and all practices that may benefit the seeker
Guidance to continue forward
Wisdom and pointings towards Truth not fallacy
Ways to mitigate karma when one Surrenders into Grace
Tough Love as needed out of Compassion for ones suffering.
Transmissions that move the Surrendered Sadhaka's forward at lightening speed.
Diksha or Energy Blessings can bring rapid Shifts to Consciousness as:
Guru is linking into the energy system and consciousness to allow it an opportunity to come more into sync with the Gurus Stillness andAwareness... When a Sadhaka has a resistance to this then NO GURU will overpower any Sadhaka as the Sadhaka's free will of keeping ego alive will effectively keep a barrier in place that the Guru will not cross.... There are some who may do the practices fully with as open of a heart as possible but they may have another lifetime to go to break down all the conditionings of mind. In these cases they will pick up where they left off and continue forward to Realization in the next life. Many times it is much easier to get a very simplistic uneducated man to Realization than it is to get a scholar there --- Why?
Because the simple man may be more accepting of what is given openly than the highly educated man that is a sceptic or comes in with much book learning that has to all be stripped bare before moving forward...
It is easier to Surrender when one KNOWS they know nothing versus when they think they know more than what they do... Like the saying goes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing..... Come in Humility and be like a sponge that is overjoyed at gaining the water which will change it's dry barren state into that of being pregnant and full of the living waters of Life....
A Sadhaka is responsible for their life --- a Guru is in place to aide you in moving forward in a beneficial way....
What a Guru cannot do is to live your life for you... You make your choices and you must live with the outcomes of your actions... Every choice you make opens doors and closes doors... Every action brings a set of potential happenings and all of this remains in the harmony or within disharmony in the transient world...
Guru's and Sages offer the best that may be given ---
The Pearl of Great Price Whether it is opened up to or fought against (by keeping in ego first) is up to the seeker....
Maha Shanti OM I Welcome You All with Great Love and Respect. Guru Kaliuttamananda-Giri (GuruSwamiG)
