Dear Satsang,

Sahaja Sthiti is the sacred movement that arises prior to the mind.

Just hearing the words “Sahaja Sthiti” is something that Awakens and pulls our attention deeper into Presence.

More and more we are able to recognize this Independent movement in the moment.

And yet consciously or not we so often still listen to “reasons” that tell us why we can’t just Be Here or Awaken and so often as well, when Past arises and takes our attention away from Presence we struggle to recognize and deal with the way the Past affects our Nervous Systems and its capacity to Be Here.

We often still don’t know quite how to recognize and address the symptoms and  patterns of the Past and Trauma and often struggle to regain our attention and awareness of the Moment.

In this 3 week program and in the next few programs as well I want to devote our time together to both nurturing the deep recognition of Presence and to learning more about how to recognize, become present to and change patterns of the Past and our so often unconscious allegiance to “reasons” why we can’t Be Here or Awaken.

I am very much looking forward to our time together. 

with Love,

Neelam

NEW YEARS INTENSIVE ’23

Written by admin. Posted in Programs

Your Decision for Freedom!

🙂♥️Renewing Our Commitment to Presence and Celebratory Bhajan Singing♥️🙂

Open to Everyone

New Years Day: Sunday, January 1

(10 AM – 1 PM Mountain Time)

Areas of Interest:*

  • Awakening, Embodiment & Freedom.
  • Decision for Freedom
  • How we postpone  choosing  Freedom now 🙂♥️
  • The meaning of ” we only have this Moment’

*Topics that Neelam may address in this program. Topics are dependent on the flow of the program and interest from the students.

Description

Papaji used to speak about a Decision for Freedom and as we Welcome the New Year, I want to both renew ! and clarify this statement!

When there is an appearance of choice — choose Being Here, choose Presence, choose Freedom!

We spoke about and experienced so much in the past few months regarding “You are not the Doer” 🙂 and we also spoke about a certain spiritual misinterpretation or misunderstanding…

Sometimes we take that statement on as a belief, as a thought — we then think that it means “I don’t have to do anything”!

When there is true choiceless Awareness there is no question of doing or choice. 🙂

When it appears that we have a choice let’s consciously make a Decision for Freedom!

We will spend the beginning of this New Year in Satsang and will also do some simple singing to Celebrate!

I want to invite you all to come together 🙂♥️ and I am very much looking forward to our time.

With Love,
Neelam

*Topics that Neelam may address in this program. Topics are dependent on the flow of the program and interest from the students.

Description

Moment by moment, as we experience the mind’s projection of what we call our life 🙂♥️, we grow more familiar with it and so, more attached to it as well.

The familiarity, and the mind’s perception of it, makes it appear so very solid and so very real. 

And yet there is the underlying solidity of Presence that invites us to keep shifting our attention to a very different Reality…Reality that takes us into the inevitable and so powerful Impermanence of all experience — and to know and rest in the two powerful aspects of our True Nature – Emptiness and Love.

In our upcoming 2-week intensive, I want to bring full circle our several weeks-long exploration of Doership and Karma/ Destiny and come back to the simplicity of resting and finding ground and solace in Impermanence of all experience, and to the very powerful and experiential description of the Awakened State. ” When I know that I am Nothing — that is Emptiness. When I know that I am Everything — that is Love. And between those two my attention moves.”

We will be speaking about other things as well; please see our areas of interest.  I am very much looking forward to our time together.

With Love,
Neelam

Description

Over the past 3 months  we have been diving more deeply – and with great curiosity and success 🙂♥️- into the questions of Doership, Karma and what it means to Remove obstacles to Awakening. 

These topics bring up a deeper level of awareness and questions for you, and in the upcoming program, I want to continue. 

It is so important to address these deeper questions, as this is often where the resistance to Full Trust in Presence resides.

I want to continue our in-depth exploration in this 3-week program, with the addition of a deeper understanding of the Nervous System and brain, as for many of us, it is the activity or the reactivity of the Nervous System that takes our attention from Being Here.

Today’s World presents us with many challenges and that can take our attention away from Presence.  Let’s together make sure that we grow in Direct Experience, in the Right Understanding and in our Love of Truth and Trust.

With Love,
Neelam 

Homework -1 page max confidentially send to info@neelam.org

Description

In our last two programs we have been exploring and enjoying the deeper, more direct aspects of knowing ourselves as Presence — and there’s really nothing more powerful to know that than our own Direct Experience.

I want to continue this deep and direct exploration in our upcoming 3-week program, also including a little more information about the Nervous System and Brain for students who are newer to me.

We will be diving even more deeply into Presence and into the very powerful exploration of “Are you the Doer?” and the “Who am I?” Inquiry.

The question of Doership brings up a lot for most everybody — which is great 🙂♥️ and the role of Satsang 😁 — and the misunderstanding can go both ways — either not realizing experientially or directly  the Truth of the statement “we are not the Doer “or using “I am not the Doer” as a thought that conflicts with or contradicts the natural movement that arises here.

I want to remain in this very experiential and practical exploration with you.

I  also want to continue with many of the themes from the last program that we did not have a chance to address fully — karma/ destiny and free will, dreams/ visions and the role of the Teacher in Awakening etc.

I also want to take some time for you to experience the very direct and powerful “Who am I ?” Inquiry.

Ramana Maharshi, after some years of quiet absorption in the Natural State — our True Nature — and in response to a question and a desire for instructions from a disciple who was moved by the deep state of Silence that Ramana was immersed in has written the instruction to the very direct and powerful “Who am I?” Inquiry. 

It is yet another very direct way to know the Truth of the statement “I am not the Doer” and I am very much looking forward to sharing this with you as well as to our time together. 

With Love,

Neelam 

Homework -1 page max confidentially send to info@neelam.org 

1.What is your experience of Doership?

How do you hold that question / understanding in your moment by moment  experience? 

2. What is your experience of asking yourself the question — as you are sitting here, right now, can anything be different in your experience?

3. What is your experience of asking yourself the question of — as you are sitting here, right now is anybody doing this?

Please share anything else you would like me to know re: these questions and your experience around — “I am not the Doer”.

Description

Sahaja Sthiti also called the intuitive sense or the 6th sense is a natural movement that arises in Presence and that guides our actions without engaging the mind or … prior to the mind’s movement.

The activity that arises in this state directly contradicts the notion of “I am the doer”.

This notion is also very directly disproved by our direct investigation “Is anybody doing this?” moment-by-moment.

This 3-week intensive, designed for returning students and open to all is a continuation of our intensive on Emptiness and Love.

Let’s keep expanding into Emptiness and Love and diving into the direct experience of Presence  and into the very direct knowledge of Self that guides all movements.

I am very much looking forward to our time together.

With Love,

Neelam
