Living in Oneness

POSITIVE THINKING

 

THE BIG PICTURE

Hello dear readers, my name is Alexis Shaffer and the beloved people of this newspaper have invited me to share my experiences with you.  These are some experiences from the people to whom I have given Diksha energy:

Experience of Rafael from Cancún

 When Alexis placed her hands on my head, I was immediately transported back to an experience I had 10 years ago: the birth of my daughter, and holding my newborn child in my arms for the first time, which gave me a feeling of great joy once again, the kind of joy that cannot be described in words. I’m so grateful to Alexis for giving me this forgotten experience once again! It’s something I’ll NEVER forget, because I’m living it this very moment. This reminds me of how important my family is to me. The session also freed me of aches and pains in my body, and I’d like Alexis to please heal my wife of her migraines.

What is the purpose of life?

The purpose of life is to live it.

-Bhagavan

The “Diksha” phenomenon is no longer new. Since this labor began at a more public level in August of 2003, thousands have received Diksha and many have become enlightened. But many haven’t, and the questions keep coming in.  What is enlightenment? How do I know that I’m enlightened?  What is the Self?  Does enlightenment mean that I’ll be free of the “Self” forever? Who am I if I am not this “Self”?  

How did St. Francis achieve his incredible closeness to wild animals? What allowed Ramana Maharishi to maintain such a deep state of peace, such that people were transformed merely due to being in his presence? What gave Saint Germain the ability to wield such a powerful political influence in Europe and America in the 17th Century?  How did Ramalinga Swami, Babaji and the Siddha Masters learn to transform their bodies into bodies of light?

An enlightened person ceases to be controlled by their ego.  Still, there is a difference between the state of emptiness without attachment felt by an enlightened person and the whole presence radiating from a God-realized person.  The most profound experience of God-realization can’t happen unless a person is enlightened, but being enlightened doesn’t necessarily lead us to God-realization automatically.

A Divine experience

Everyone knows that the mind is a “monkey”!  It constantly plans or broods over something or other, or repeatedly thinks of events that will happen in the future, or events that happened in the past.  However, all the experiences and feelings that we go through, could happen differently from what we planned.  Feelings come up spontaneously. In other words, we don’t plan and resolve “I’m going to be happy today”, or “I’m going to be angry”, or “I’m going to feel upset!” These feelings surface automatically and depend on each situation.

Therefore, if we wish for a change in our feelings, perceptions, intentions, motives and opinions 
we should first realize that it isn’t possible to do so through human effort. If a true transformation is going to happen, we need to have a divine experience. The main reason behind our suffering, is the lack of divine experience.

On certain occasions, it seems like our lives are lacking enthusiasm or that something’s missing, or that life is incomplete.  A feeling of emptiness, alienation, and loneliness is inside our hearts. We could be working among many people in an office, or be in the company of many friends. When we are with our families, we might still be feeling lonely.  Something divides us and other people.

When we are surrounded by mountains in beautiful surroundings, listening to the chirpy sound of birds, near a crystalline brook, we forget ourselves and enjoy nature enthusiastically.  But even then, it lasts only several minutes.  There, also, loneliness rears its ugly head again. It feels as if we don’t belong there.  The idea that we are just visitors pops up.  Something is stopping us from bonding with others, with nature and with the world.  We can share some things with others, but there are many things buried deep within that can’t be shared with other people.  The reason we feel that we are an “individual” is because we don’t have an experience of the Divine. 

Appreciation Letter from Juana Ku Colli (Juanita) of Cancún

 For the last 19 years I have been diagnosed with Diabetes, Skin Cancer and Lung Fibroides. And just 6 weeks ago, I began to lose my white blood platelets. My body was degenerating quickly. I had the great fortune to meet Alexis as she gave me a Special Healing Diksha Therapy. When she placed her hands on my head, I felt a drop of liquid falling on my right cheek and my entire body got very hot moving thru all the way to my knees!

When I reached home later I suddenly felt an uncontrollable urge to jump up and down and laugh hysterically! And after showering I felt excellent!
I felt brand new as if I was a young healthy child again!
The whole rest of the day I felt HAPPY & HEALTHY AGAIN!!
All due to the Diksha Energy that entered my body! Thank you Alexis

Wanting to be:  
 
Once a friend approached a king and asked him:

“My lord!  If you conquer Rome, what will you do after that?”

The king replied:

“Sicily is next and it will be easy to conquer!”

“And we will we do after Sicily falls?”

“We’ll move into Africa and conquer it.”

“And after Africa my lord?”

“We’ll attack Greece.”

“And what will be the result of all these conquests?”

Then the king said:

“We’ll be able to lie down and enjoy life.”

The friend said:

“Can’t we enjoy life right now?”

This story is self-explanatory. The peace and joy which one hopes to find alter accumulating material wealth or that which one considers an ideal future, can be found here and now. The possession of material goods can help us to enjoy a comfortable life. It does not guarantee relaxation and enjoyment of life.  To apply an interesting thought, when one explores the inner world and complex human emotions, one finds that the great part of human suffering is due to the human being that “is”, constantly “wanting to be”.

This “constant wanting to be”, is clearly seen when one tries to go from jealousy to not being jealous, from bad to good, from stupid to intelligent, from imperfect to perfect, from profane to sacred; it’s the battle that has been going on in human minds for thousands of years.

You should be what you are. What you should be isn’t important. Whoever you are, you are unique. The Universe created you this way. God created you this way. Why does His work bother you so much? Surrendering to God is being yourself.”

Being yourself is being enlightened.

“Joy is prayer, the sign of our generosity, our detachment, and of our inner union with God.“ Mother Teresa of Calcuta
