The beauty of this process
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 people whom have received Diksha:
"In the first Diksha I felt like I had disappeared. Then there felt like a bulls-eye and a burning sensation on top of my head. During the next Diksha, I had a feeling of wanting to laugh. The left side of my body disappeared. There was a lot of activity on my right side, which became light and felt well-balanced. Then there was activity on my left side. I had a great deal of third eye sensations and became a column of light." F.
"I have had increased energy, and I seem to have become more in tune with the energy around me. My hands have started to pulse when I hold hands with another." P.
"Since receiving the Dikshas, I've noticed a more permanent feeling of connectedness to everything. Definitely a strong sense of no separation. I have invoked Bhagavan and Amma several times in the last weeks and felt their presence around me. I look forward to knowing them better in that realm of spirit." M.
"Since my two Dikshas, this month has been the most wonderful, incredible, and fascinating time of my life. I have had so many adventures, from the ordinary, to the extraordinary, to the incredible Oneness, and feel no limits. We are ONE. I am so happy to be here and alive at this time." R.
"During the workshop I was able to feel and see some bright energy waves, and felt there was some minor emotional release, passing moments of nausea, then afterwards feeling so full of joy I wanted to scream or burst, deep peace and relaxation, etc." H.
How Can I End My Suffering? by Anandagiriji
Suffering is not in the situation, in the fact, but in the perception of the fact.
There is a common belief in the world today that we can transform a situation by changing it. That is called situation content. We think by transforming the content that we are going to be happy with it. But in reality the situation has nothing to do with your happiness or your sadness. It is in the way you look at the situation--the way you perceive the situation.
Very often when something has happened which you did not expect, which you don't like or appreciate, the situation has long passed but you still carry the situation inside of you. You are constantly questioning the situation with, "Why? Why did this happen to me? What could I have done differently?" And you try to offer many explanations as to why it happened to you.
You see, the suffering is not caused from the situation itself, but in the way you are questioning the situation, in your inability to accept the situation, and all the reasons you think this happened to you. It is impossible in the current state of the world, and with all the karma, that one can become completely free of all problems. Problems are bound to be there, for anybody and everybody--whether they be rich or poor, educated or uneducated, or of any class or location.
Problems can be there but there is no reason for one to suffer, because the situation--the problem--intrinsically does not contain any suffering. When you reach a level of consciousness where you can accept situations in life fully, by being alive to the situation, no matter what the situation is, you will be happy. Diksha can help you reach that level.
Jesus Christ felt enormous love and compassion because his brain was wired differently. The Buddha was in the state of immense peace and tranquility because his brain was wired differently. If you want to feel that peace, if you want to feel that love, it's possible when the changes happen in the physical, gray matter of your own brain. When your brain is wired differently, then it's possible for you to experience that love and peace. That's what Diksha does.
There is not too much to explain about Diksha because it is not a technique. The Divine Presence have not only given us the experience of enlightenment, but also have given us the capacity to give this experience to others through Diksha. It is an act of Grace. When Deeksha is given, there is a neurobiological transformation which leads to love, peace, bliss--whatever you are really looking for, including an end to suffering.
Enlightenment, or whatever you want to call that state, is not a psychological process. It's a biological process. If it were a psychological process then surely by practicing a technique it would be possible to achieve. Since it's not a psychological process, it would be impossible to get there by using a teaching or a technique.
There is no singular definition of enlightenment, but the way we understand enlightenment is that it is a state where all suffering has ended--all psychological suffering, and all existential suffering. You live your life with no more sense of isolation. You feel a part of everything; you feel everything is a part of you. There is the experience of connectedness, and you don't feel separated from others. So when we speak of enlightenment, we talk of this experience where all division has ended inside, where the sense of separate existence is gone.
It is this enlightenment, through Diksha, that The Divine Presence is trying to bring to people. When Diksha is given, you will find whatever you have been seeking.
Two monks were walking to their monastery, when they saw a beautiful woman trying to cross the river, but she couldn’t because the river was over flooded and the bridge was gone. The woman ask them to please help her cross the river, the monks stared at each other because in their Order is forbidden to touch a woman, less to carry her. Then the older monk carried the woman across the river and left her in the other side. The monks continue walking to their monastery; after a few hours the younger monk erupted against the older one: How could you carry that woman!!! You know is forbidden to touch women!!! ….; calmly the older monk told him: I left the woman by the river, You are still carrying her on your shoulders! ............
I’ll be happy to share this TRANSFORMING WONDERFUL DIVINE GRACE through DIKSHA with your friends and family so that ALL experience the TRUE JOY OF LIVING that is our birth right!
Suffering is UNNECESSARY! I guarantee to you that there is ANOTHER WAY!
WE ALL ARE ONE… ONLY LOVE EXISTS…. Everything else is just an illusion!
I’ll be even happier to show you giving you the opportunity to have your own experience through Diksha.
I love you all and send you BIG HUGS full of Love. ALEXIS
