Silent Sitting with Mooji ~ Easter 2019


Silent Sitting
(with subtitles) Easter Sunday 2019 [Mooji] Om. Namaste.
Welcome all to satsang today, to this silent sitting, which I dedicate to the name
and the living presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, on this Easter day. The sitting will be
approximately 30, 35 minutes, or so. It is never strict, in this way. For large parts of the sitting,
there will just be silence, but occasionally, as prompted from inside, I may bring some guidance, some words to you. Please sit in a way that you are comfortable. And of course,
if you come into contact accidentally, or naturally, with those sitting next to you, it is nothing at all, it is fine. Just remain comfortable, in such a way that,
you can sit without moving about, for the next half an hour, or so. At the end of the sitting, I will ring the bell just to indicate that
the session is over, for the moment. You will notice that
the deep inner silence is not affected by such things as end of sessions,
or something like that. I ask you to remain seated, as I leave the room. And those of you, who wish to sit behind and to continue marinating in that silence, you are very welcome to do that. Others, you move about, as quietly as you can. Thank you. In the holy name
and presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose spirit and presence
dwell happily here in Monte Sahaja, in the hearts of all beings, we dedicate this sitting. Amen. [sound of the bell] Do whatever feels comfortable for you. There are times, when you may want
to open your eyes, or to keep your eyes closed. This is perfectly natural. Be comfortable. The real silence is not something that we do. It is not simply keeping quiet by not speaking. Real silence is not in control of anyone. It is the nature of being. It is not a doing. It is synonymous with our inmost Being. It is to be recognised, rather than the sense
that we are doing something. In order to recognise it, don’t follow the thought energy,
or the mind energy. Stay only in the witnessing of that,
but detached witnessing, witnessing without identity. Do not label yourself as a witnesser. Let there be only witnessing, spontaneous and automatic, where and when necessary. Otherwise, remain empty. We cannot stop thoughts from coming, but you can stop your attention
from following them. Remain in the natural neutrality of emptiness. Be aware that the mind’s habit is to create,
to move about. But you, the one who observes the mind,
are ever still. Mind is like the wind, it moves about. But your Self is like space. It is infinite. It does not move about. What tends to move about with the mind
is attention, one of your intimate tools and powers. But there is something beyond attention, more present than attention, in which even the movement of attention
is observed. Be here. Unlike the mind energy, the pure consciousness Self does not move about. It is the limitless Self. It is pure silence. But it is not being silent! It is silence itself. Silence has no doer behind it. If some tension appears inside the body, it means nothing at all; ignore that. Here, in the very heart of being, there is nothing to do, or to change, or to fix, or to create, or to become. There is nothing to leave.
There is nowhere to go. It is entirely beyond all states of the mind. It is your natural state. Yet it is not rigid. It is not controlling. It is without fear. Recognise this. Whatever appears in the mind has no reality. Like clouds passing,
there is no permanence about them. Neither time, nor change exist without you, the one who observes them. If there is no you, there is no time. You are the witness of time and change, yourself being the unchanging one. Do not doubt this. Look and confirm in your silence. This body is not the proof that you exist. There was never a time when you were not. I am not speaking about your person. Your person also does not truly exist. What exists eternally is consciousness, the very heart of God. Be in great joy
that your existence is included in God, who has placed the intelligence,
the power of discernment, that you may recognise Him, who alone is real and unchanging. It is the unchanging within ourselves
that is the eternal. This body is a time body. It has a birth time, a life time and an end time. But the spirit in you is immortal. It is synonymous with pure consciousness. It exists beyond history. There is no need to imagine this. Be in the now, without the ‘then’. Though the egoic mind regards this
as a kind of restriction, in truth, it is your everlasting freedom. Unbound. Unconquerable. Though it appears that
some cloud of ignorance veils the Self, it is an illusion. You who perceive the veil, are not veiled. Om. [long silence] Now, leave everything. Every thought, every intention, every seed of memory, leave them. There is no need to destroy or to throw away. Simply leave everything now, even the very idea of yourself. If each thing that you could perceive,
you simply left … Come more deeply in. Do not be combined with any thought,
or any concept. Are you not still here? But as what are you here? Leave all definitions, all intentions,
all memories. Are you not still here? Are you less? Leave all that is personal and see if you can lose your Self. Do not be overtaken by sleep. Stay in the bright awareness Self. Whatever is passing,
or whatever appears, is ephemeral. It is not permanent. Like clouds, let them float by. There is no need to push or pull. Recognise your stillness, your effortless stillness. And be happy. In truth, your are not the thinker of thoughts, or the doer of actions, or even the enjoyer of this world. All these you perceive. In your essential nature, nothing is needed. Pay attention and see. It is important to recognise this. Because, when this is known
and confirmed inside your heart, this world will not trouble you. It will not be seen as your enemy. In fact, it will become the very body of God. Notice your own natural stillness and silence. In itself, it never changes. It does not go, nor come. Do not confuse the movement of the body and mind as your movement. And yet, in this dynamic expression of the Self, you are also here. Recognising the real, the unreal, the momentary, will not disturb you. God-Consciousness-Brahman is your sole Being. Rejoice in this. If there should arise within you
a feeling of distractedness, notice that even this is seen. Don’t give it such importance. It is only a sensation. It is not a definition of what you are. Long before this body came into existence, you already existed as consciousness. There is work to be done here, and that is to bring,
from the depth of your being into the dynamic field,
the power and grace of your seeing. Because your life in this world
should be the song of God. Lord Christ once said in prayer, ‘Father, let me be again with you, as I was before the beginning of this world’. But when does this world begin? It begins in the mind. You are not the mind. The mind does not exist
without the witness of the mind. Our sense of personhood is a brief association of the consciousness with the sense of person; a state we must transcend. If heaven is a place, or state, where there are beautiful forms of trees and beautiful mountains, skies and rivers,
and beautiful beings, then it is also phenomenal, of the highest kind. But in pure consciousness, you are even beyond heaven and heavenly states. Oh, don’t reject heaven. Sahaja itself is a small taste of heaven. But that which I point to has been beyond all form,
and time, and change. It is immeasurable. It is limitless. Uncreated and unchanging. Know this to be the very essence. Yet, don’t simply imagine that you are here. Transcend the mind’s influence by keeping your attention rooted in the Self. Trust in God while the sense of individuality and personhood or even autonomy remains with us. And pray that the supreme One
absorbs our fragmented attention, and that we are merged in that singular being. Do not think of yourself as being special. Rather, be nothing. Like zero beyond the concept of zero. Then everything returns to its essence. Don’t make the mistake of believing or feeling that the pure Self is a high state of feeling. It is much subtler
than even a feelingless feeling. It is pure awareness. It is the only thing that is truly here. Everything else is a cloud passing, including the seeker. When what the seeker seeks is found, the seeker is no more. May what has been shared today find its way deep within your being, beyond even remembering, into the very core of your own Self. Do not let sleep cause you to miss it. It is not the time to sleep. As I said before,
You are the seeds of awakening in a sleeping world. Don’t sleep now. Though the mind might fight
on hearing these things, your heart knows these things. Honour what is in your heart. Lord Jesus Christ and all the saints and prophets were lights in this world, and still are. From your pure heart shines
the true light of the world. Don’t let your mind cover it. Mind and ego offer a life
of pleasures and pursuits, with death at the end of it. But the heart reveals the life, eternal and pure. You choose. The words that have been spoken to you emanated out of my heart. These words will pass, but where they come from will never pass. They come from the same place
that you are essentially. We are the speaking and the listening,
and even beyond. Do not give these things to your mind. If you feel the prayer in your heart,
then pray to God that real understanding comes
and washes away all delusions, and awakens in you
the true recognition of your timeless being, and your harmony with God, who is Truth. Today we honour the spirit of Christ, who is also the light shining inside the heart. Not only the person of Christ,
but the Christ consciousness, which is not other than Krishna consciousness,
or Shiva being, or the heart and essence of all saints,
prophets and seers of all time. Our life is the fruit of their seeing, the testimony of their realisation. The spirit of Christ
is not an historical phenomenon. It is the living and timeless Being,
the very essence of life, the life that is emanating through this body. And it is to be known and recognised, while this body is still warm. While we have the sense of time, use time to discover the timeless. The Buddha is a true Master. Drink directly from the Master’s lips
and the Master’s heart. Rama, Krishna, Christ, the holy prophets: drink directly from the Masters’ lips
and the Masters’ heart. Drink the cup of grace. But the Lord supreme is beyond all. Beyond all names and forms, He dwells within the heart
of every sentient being. Begin to find Him
through the vibration ‘I am’ within you. Be one with this intuition, the sense ‘I am’, and don’t let it connect with any other concept. It will take you to the heart of God. Though I am timeless, in my phenomenal life,
I am here only for a time. Make use of this time to discover and confirm
the timeless within your own self. Then you will know that
I am never apart from you. May the peace, the love and wisdom
of the Lord Jesus Christ and all the holy saints and prophets,
and seers of all time, arise and abide in your heart, and support your
recognition and merging in the supreme Self, in accordance with the will of God. Let it be so. Let it be so. Let it be so. Om, shanti, shanti, shanti. Hallelujah. Amen. [sound of the bell] Om. Copyright © 2019 Mooji Media Ltd.
