To rise in consciousness from one dimension to another, you need help

Lead me from dreaming to waking. Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious.

Lead me from intention to attention.

Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
*note* great site about Maruti Shivrampant Kambli(aka Nisargadatta Maharaj....April 17, 1897 – September 8, 1981 )..please if you want to read his first book he wrote after realization of SELF....be aware  the book was printed only in 200 copies..and only if you read it you could understand how he was when young...again..the path moves forward and he explained from the consciousness factor only in his later days,before he died from neck cancer,due to the daily 100 cigars he was smoking,like a chimney  ..but before in his first book,he explained the path from the devotion factor..also grasshoppers from heaven..NEVER forget that when you are worshiping some GOD or Image,or SYMBOL..you are actually worshiping some part of yourself,inside you..for if you don't understand this subtle teaching of the mahayogi(loved in the 3 realms,worshiped in 10,celebrated by himself in the 18th..since he is the only one there)
..then you'll fall into heresy ..refuse to know your divinity,and depend only the mighty kripto wisdom muscles..PLEASE do not make this mistake!..for if you do it,you'll loose the connection to your own power within,and think(like a true moronic grasshopper from heaven) that you are just at mercy of the Gods,or the universe..or the kriptodanny ..I tell you again to be careful about this aspect,for billions have fallen in this trap...I say you are the beauty,the source,the manifestation..the peace and the wisdom..you have the solutions inside you of all the problems you've created just so you'd know yourself..what's the matter with you?..REALIZE you have the solution..because YOU created the problem...but don't reject the problem,for is trying to teach you a lesson..see?.the lesson is that you can separate..the answer is you were always responsible,and look for the solution..but you must not only know this ,but become it as both knowing and realizing .see my superior point of view,my grasshoppers from heaven?..good...now check my superior 12 inch wisdom muscles too..they are even better,indeed..).if you want to read it,I posted the complete text on http://kriptodanny.blogspot.com/2011/04/jean-dunn-translation-of-very-first.html


I quote a bit from the front page(http://www.byronevents.net/nisargadatta/that1.htm#content)" The sense of being, of 'I am' is the first to emerge. Ask yourself whence it comes, or just watch it quietly. When the mind stays in the 'I am' without moving, you enter a state which cannot be verbalized but can be experienced. All you need to do is try and try again." and "All existence is imaginary. Only the Unlimited is real.

Only that which makes perception possible is real.

One who is aware is beyond every experience, utterly beyond awareness itself.

You find yourself utterly beyond the subject and the object. Both exist in you, but you are neither. You, the Supreme Absolute, are the very source of reality.

Selfless and intelligent, all the powers of the universe are for you to command: You are the Source Absolute. This is your natural state.
"
*note*,,now..this guy has really understood the meaning of ,,pure awareness,,.and about ,,guru is in you,, and other stuff...the problem is that unless you're on his level,is very hard to comprehend it...he meant the sense of,,I AM,,as a means only to get you beyond it,like a mantra ..see?..the main idea of,,I am,, or ,,whom I am,, is that it can't be answered in the mental realm..only in the sound of silence,indeed...that is the realm beyond thoughts,or the realm of origin of the thoughts(or the 4 elements,whatever..remember that fire,water,earth and air are just manifestations of the same origin in you whom created the double-helix of DNA,and here you are having consciousness ,grown up from a sperm and an ovule..learned to read this post also..look how beautiful you are!..check your boobs or biceps!..aren't they great?..now check your wisdom muscles..too bad they're lost in your identification with the 4 elements,plus the 5th consciousness ...what's the matter with you,grasshoppers from heaven?..you really think you are that?
If you think you are THAT...then you'll be the reflecting on this after death..since the MIND takes impressions of what you want to believe,and makes it true..with a twist...it gives you pain,so you must correct your errors.
In the end...you'll recognize your power within..but why not be happy now?..what's the matter with you..you want to experience it?..Of course you can,but for that you have to meditate.
Remember that all the devils and gods are inside you..this tension between the principle of,,separation,, and the principle of,,unity,, creates consciousness ..see?..grasshoppers from heaven??
THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS CREATED ON THIS TENSION BETWEEN YIN/YANG ..SEPARATION POWERS AND UNITY POWERS..THIS IS THE REAL EVIL AND GOOD....and not what you thought about...both of these aspects you can feel it in your belly,as it expands..relaxes when you are in unity factor..and contracts and you feel like a knot in your grasshopper from heaven belly when you separate yourself from the ONE inside you..but you must watch the sensations..or you thought you must do nothing?..The work is your meditation,or the free will..or you think maybe some 12 arms Shiva will pop in your face and tell you what to do?..don't be ridiculous..you'll run away if you meet some crazy 12 arms dude on the street..trust me..(the spirit named kripto..kripto means hidden inside you..and it the same in all living beings,is NOT personal kripto..try the personal Jesus if you want,but there is no such thing as,,personal Kripto,,..trust the mahayogi..loved in the 3 realms,respected in 10..celebrated in the 18th also)
Of course from the ultimate point of view(the kripto spirit view inside you..),you are not that,but I've tried to explain you a bit the mystery of creation itself...such is my mahayogi,one of a kind.. mercy,and I don't know why I even bother to explain you,since I could easily not talk at all..and close this blog with one click of my 12 inch wisdom finger...and be in my samadhi ,my bliss..and forget about the grasshoppers..because I am pretty sure everything I say enters thru one left ear..then exits on the right grasshopper ear...now I understand why those ancients from the past..whom have mastered the truth of the universe...retreated in the mountains..and forgot the world...guess they realized that people do not want bliss,truth,felicity..freedom from suffering..
THOSE ANCIENTS REALIZED THAT PEOPLE LOVE THEIR SUFFERING..because they believe there is nothing else..
And there is NO WAY to explain them there is indeed..something else..eternal bliss..eternal powers..joy in unity,while we are different ..unless they practice.
That is the the reason why GODS can't transform humanity..because the same power in them,is in humans..if ONLY they practice.

About the Nisargadatta again..
In any case,even though his method is useless(the mind asking ,,whom I am,, other then proving you have the original desire you're just creating a secondary mind-form ..and the idea is to get beyond it..)
In theory..if you have enough wisdom,and trust the process ..you could..but there very few whom could do it using the stupid,,whom I am,, question...why is that?
Imagine a vortex of energy..where it affects what you think,or ask...depending on where your attention is.
DID I TELL YOU THAT THE ATTENTION IS THE ONLY POWER YOU HAVE?
The rest is resonance factors,depending of WHERE your attention was..see?..grasshoppers from heaven?
Please examine carefully my words,for I explained you the meaning of free will,or not free will...
Please remember that all the energy you have is borrowed ,and not yours..unless you become the energy,using the mind(attention) factor...even if you are in heaven right now,unless your attention is on the SOURCE..when those batteries are wasted..you'll come back to the suffering.

This vortex is fractal..like a labyrinth ...where everything you think,or could ever think is a measure of the STEPS you did..in the past...I could explain more,but be aware that truth is a rabbit..as beautifully Alfred Pulyan  said it "The truth does not permeate all religions except in such fantastic disguise that its own father wouldn't know it. Suppose truth is a rabbit. This rabbit is in a field—a large field. Round the field are very high walls—creeds and dogma! So—find your damn rabbit!! And remember the rabbit knows your thoughts and what YOU DO... so as you resolve to go one way to catch it, it knows it,and evades you!" (from http://tatfoundation.org/forum2003-04.htm#2
Now..this is the video about the rabbit he talked about..Bugs Bunny~ Alfred Pulyan was an American Zen master who worked almost exclusively through the mail. This excerpt is from correspondence he had with Richard Rose.

Kisses ,,and please catch the kripto spirit rabbit..thus spokenth the mahayogi!

58. Perfection, Destiny of All

Questioner: When asked about the means for self-realisation, you invariably stress the importance of the mind dwelling on the sense 'I am'. Where is the causal factor? Why should this particular thought result in self-realisation? How does the contemplation of 'I am' affect me?
Maharaj: The very fact of observation alters the observer and the observed. After all, what prevents the insight into one's true nature is the weakness and obtuseness of the mind and its tendency to skip the subtle and focus on the gross only. When you follow my advice and try to keep your mind on the notion of 'I am' only, you become fully aware of your mind and its vagaries. Awareness, being lucid harmony (sattva) in action, dissolves dullness and quietens the restlessness of the mind and gently, but steadily changes its very substance. This change need not be spectacular; it may be hardly noticeable; yet it is a deep and fundamental shift from darkness to light, from inadvertence to awareness.
Q:   Must it be the 'I am' formula? Will not any other sentence do? If I concentrate on 'there is a table', will it not serve the same purpose?
M:  As an exercise in concentration -- yes. But it will not take you beyond the idea of a table. You are not interested in tables, you want to know yourself. For this keep steadily in the focus of consciousness the only clue you have: your certainty of being. Be with it, play with it, ponder over it, delve deeply into it, till the shell of ignorance breaks open and you emerge into the realm of reality.
Q:   Is there any causal link between my focussing the 'I am' and the breaking of the shell?
M:  The urge to find oneself is a sign that you are getting ready. The impulse always comes from within. Unless your time has come, you will have neither the desire nor the strength to go for self-enquiry whole-heartedly.
Q:   Is not the grace of the Guru responsible for the desire and its fulfilment? Is not the Guru's radiant face the bait on which we are caught and pulled out of this mire of sorrow?
M:  It is the Inner Guru (sadguru) who takes you to the Outer Guru, as a mother takes her child to a teacher. Trust and obey your Guru, for he is the messenger of your Real Self.
Q:   How do I find a Guru whom I can trust?
M:  Your own heart will tell you. There is no difficulty in finding a Guru, because the Guru is in search of you. The Guru is always ready; you are not ready. You have to be ready to learn; or you may meet your Guru and waste your chance by sheer inattentiveness and obstinacy. Take my example; there was nothing in me of much promise, but when I met my Guru, I listened, trusted and obeyed.
Q:   Must I not examine the teacher before I put myself entirely into his hands?
M:  By all means examine! But what can you find out? Only as he appears to you on your own level.
Q:   I shall watch whether he is consistent, whether there is harmony between his life and his teaching.
M:  You may find plenty of disharmony -- so what? It proves nothing. Only motives matter. How will you know his motives?
Q:   I should at least expect him to be a man of self-control who lives a righteous life.
M:  Such you will find many -- and of no use to you. A Guru can show the way back home, to your real self. What has this to do with the character, or temperament of the person he appears to be? Does he not clearly tell you that he is not the person? The only way you can judge is by the change in yourself when you are in his company. If you feel more at peace and happy, if you understand yourself with more than usual clarity and depth, it means you have met the right man. Take your time, but once you have made up your mind to trust him, trust him absolutely and follow every instruction fully and faithfully. It does not matter much if you do not accept him as your Guru and are satisfied with his company only. Satsang alone can also take you to your goal, provided it is unmixed and undisturbed. But once you accept somebody as your Guru, listen, remember and obey. Half-heartedness is a serious drawback and the cause of much self-created sorrow. The mistake is never the Guru's; it is always the obtuseness and cussedness of the discipline that is at fault.
Q:   Does the Guru then dismiss, or disqualify a disciple?
M:  He would not be a Guru if he did! He bides his time and waits till the disciple, chastened and sobered, comes back to him in a more receptive mood.
Q:   What is the motive? Why does the Guru take so much trouble?
M:  Sorrow and the ending of sorrow. He sees people suffering in their dreams and he wants them to wake up. Love is intolerant of pain and suffering. The patience of a Guru has no limits and, therefore, it cannot be defeated. The Guru never fails.
Q:   Is my first Guru also my last, or do I have to pass from Guru to Guru?
M:  The entire universe is your Guru. You learn from everything, if you are alert and intelligent. Were your mind clear and your heart clean, you would learn from every passer-by;. It is because you are indolent or restless, that your inner Self manifests as the outer Guru and makes you trust him and obey.
Q:   Is a Guru inevitable?
M:  It is like asking 'Is a mother inevitable?' To rise in consciousness from one dimension to another, you need help. The help may not always be in the shape of a human person, it may be a subtle presence, or a spark of intuition, but help must come. The inner Self is watching and waiting for the son to return to his father. At the right time he arranges everything affectionately and effectively. Where a messenger is needed, or a guide, he sends the Guru to do the needful.
Q:   There is one thing I cannot grasp. You speak of the inner self as wise and good and beautiful and in every way perfect, and of the person as mere reflection without a being of its own. On the other hand you take so much trouble in helping the person to realise itself. If the person is so unimportant, why be so concerned with its welfare? Who cares for a shadow?
M:  You have brought in duality where there is none. There is the body and there is the Self. Between them is the mind, in which the Self is reflected as 'I am'. Because of the imperfections of the mind, its crudity and restlessness, lack of discernment and insight, it takes itself to be the body, not the Self. All that is needed is to purify the mind so that it can realise its identity with the Self. When the mind merges in the Self, the body presents no problems. It remains what it is, an instrument of cognition and action, the tool and the expression of the creative fire within: The ultimate value of the body is that it serves to discover the cosmic body, which is the universe in its entirety. As you realise yourself in manifestation, you keep on discovering that you are ever more than what you have imagined.
Q:   Is there no end to self-discovery?
M:  As there is no beginning, there is no end. But what I have discovered by the grace of my Guru is: I am nothing that can be pointed at. I am neither a 'this' nor a 'that'. This holds absolutely.
Q:   Then, where comes in the never-ending discovery, the endless transcending oneself into hew dimensions?
M:  All this belongs to the realm of manifestation; it is in the very structure of the universe, that the higher can be had only through the freedom from the lower.
Q:   What is lower and what is higher?
M:  Look at it in terms of awareness. Wider and deeper consciousness is higher. All that lives, works for protecting, perpetuating and expanding consciousness. This is the world's sole meaning and purpose. It is the very essence of Yoga -- ever raising the level of consciousness, discovery of new dimensions, with their properties, qualities and powers. In that sense the entire universe becomes a school of Yoga (yogakshetra).
Q:   Is perfection the destiny of all human beings?
M:  Of all living beings -- ultimately. The possibility becomes a certainty when the notion of enlightenment appears in the mind. Once a living being has heard and understood that deliverance is within his reach, he will never forget, for it is the first message from within. It will take roots and grow and in due course take the blessed shape of the Guru.
Q:   So all we are concerned with is the redemption of the mind?
M:  What else? The mind goes astray, the mind returns home. Even the word 'astray' is not proper. The mind must know itself in every mood. Nothing is a mistake unless repeated.


To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;
In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.
Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;
There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.
The true and constant must respond to phenomena;
Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.
When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;
When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.
When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;
Within the pot, the trigrams of heaven and earth are joined.
Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;
Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.
White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak; 
The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.
Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;
You wander so freely—who is able to know you?
Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;
Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.
It comes entirely from these twenty lines;
A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -
To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-
