By Life Positive January 2008 Enter the new year with a sheaf of resolutions as eight illustrious gurus tell you how to achieve prosperity, inner clarity, a loving nature, happiness, right studentship, peace, success and transparency. Bliss attracts fortuneIn India, when any new venture is started, people sit down for a few moments, close their eyes and meditate. They try to bring about an energy play or transformation inside themselves in those few minutes. Why do they do this? Understand: when the energy flow in us becomes fulfilling, it has the property of influencing the outer world! Whether you believe it or not, accept it or not, you are deeply connected to Existence, to the Cosmos. Your thoughts and energy levels have the capacity to create and attract incidents and people of the same nature. ‘Attract prosperity by learning to live in bliss by Paramahamsa Nithyananda’ There is a beautiful scientific study done by one Japanese doctor, Masaru Emoto. He published a book, Messages from Water. He worked on the power of the mind over matter by visually documenting the molecular changes in water due to the environment it is in, by means of his photographic techniques. He placed water in several containers under the same controlled conditions. He relayed positive thoughts like peace, bliss and joy to one specimen, and violent thoughts like war, terrorism, violence, anger to another. He labelled them appropriately. He then froze the water, and examined the crystals under a dark field microscope with photographic capabilities. He concluded that the water on which he used positive words shone like gems with amazing geometric jewel-like patterns! The water on which he used negative words looked dark, dense and evil! He discovered many fascinating differences in the crystalline structures of water from many different sources and different conditions around the planet. Now imagine: if our thoughts can affect the chemical structure of a mere glass of water, then just imagine how much our thoughts can affect our body and mind which is made up of blood! Our thoughts have the capacity to affect the seas. All the so-called natural calamities are nothing but the effects of global negative thoughts. From childhood onward, we have been trained in ‘mathematics logic’, never in ‘existential logic’. Mathematics logic is very straightforward, and should be applied only where appropriate. In matters concerning life and relationships, mathematics logic will cause only chaos. With it, we will always look to conclude with a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ judgment. There is something beyond and deeper than this, and that is existential logic – the logic of the Cosmos. This comes with a deep understanding and flowering from within. When this happens, your thoughts and energy will transform. Your thoughts and energy directly affect your body, your cell structure, your decisions, your capacity to fulfil your decisions, incidents in the outer world. Currently, you are always centred in either greed or fear. Every action that you do is out of either desire or fear. You corrupt your energy flow because of this. If you can change your mental setup from this type to one of bliss – ananda, your energy flow will start brimming, and your thoughts will be much clearer. When this happens, you have every power to control incidents in the outer world, because then, you and Existence have a very deep connection at the energy level. This is the thread that you need to catch in order to understand that bliss attracts fortune. When you are blissful, when your mental setup is not one of worry, fear or greed but one that is in the present, always joyful, you will automatically attract all good things to yourself. All authentic world religions, all meditations, all world philosophies have one ultimate goal: to tune man with the energy of Existence or Cosmos because if this happens, man enters bliss and when he enters bliss, he lives with great prosperity in the inner and outer worlds. And there is no other way which attracts fortune like how bliss does. When you pray to Goddess Lakshmi, it is not enough to ring the bell and chant praises to Her, and then go back to your old mental setup. You have to imbibe the very qualities, the very energy that She stands for – that is beauty, grace and prosperity! When you understand this, and start tuning yourself, you will see that you become Lakshmi! That is where religion and spirituality meet to transform you! This deep understanding combined with meditation can initiate a quantum transformation in your living. Paramahamsa Nithyananda is founder of the Bangalore-based Dhyanapeetam.

Everybody wants to know how to be confident. Everybody tells you, “Believe in yourself.” Slowly, this has seeped into the Indian coast also. When people believed in God, they did horrible enough things on the planet. Now they believe in themselves; this is going to produce far more horrible things! Confidence is not a solution to life. Confidence can only help you to walk through the streets eyes closed. Once an American woman came to India. She sat in one of our autorickshaws, and it started whizzing. The driver believed he was in a Formula 1 circuit, and was going full throttle through everything. He missed many things by inches, and the woman was just screaming and yelling, but he just went on. Then he went into a narrow street where two trucks were passing each other, and he went right between them. The woman thought she was finished. But to her amazement, she came through. When he stopped, she asked, “When those two trucks came, without cutting the throttle, you just went straight in. How did you manage it?” He said, “I just closed my eyes.” If you did not have confidence, you would gently feel your way through the world. But the combination of stupidity and confidence makes one walk blatantly on this planet. The whole of humanity is walking very blatantly on this planet – with terrible confidence. But to be truly joyful and peaceful as a human being, one needs to invest in his inner strength. Unless a person carries a certain inner clarity – an inner space which cannot be disturbed from outside – no matter what he creates, he will only bring bigger problems upon himself. Only when there is inner clarity and balance, he will see how to live happily in spite of external situations. A man can work in many dimensions in this world. One is by using his body and mind, and the other is by using his inner clarity. Whenever a man uses his inner clarity for his work, that work has a certain quality and sharpness. On the other hand, confidence is a blind strength that works just by chance, and living by chance will only breed anxiety and fear. It is only through clarity that one can gain ultimate strength. One way one can cultivate this space of inner clarity and balance is through the practice of yoga. The word yoga itself means “union”. The ultimate goal of yoga is to become one with everything. Creating inner clarity and balance is not the goal of yoga, it is a fundamental requirement. If we balance the energy system, we will find that the body, mind and emotions will function perfectly well. Through yogic practices, one’s energy attains a state of balance that naturally becomes tuned with the body and the mind, allowing one to reach a state of inner clarity. Even simple practices can go a long way in creating this. Every day when you wake up in the morning, sit up on your bed, sit cross-legged, sit with your hands open, eyes closed and just look at everything you are not. Appreciate all that you have gathered – your home, your family, your relationships, your qualifications, your body, your clothes, everything, be thankful for that. At the same time, going step-by-step, go from the furthermost thing to the closest, just identify everything that is not you as “this is what I have gathered” and mentally keep it aside. What you gather can be yours, but it can never be you. Spend ten minutes in the morning, ten minutes in the night every day; this will bring clarity. If one is properly initiated by a guru, this particular process can take on a new dimension. But till such an opportunity comes in your life, you can do this by yourself. It will definitely have a big impact upon your inner clarity.

And God is love. Love is not an attribute or quality of God. Love is God! Man is made for loving. If we don’t love, we will be like the night without the moon. Indeed, without love this world is a wilderness. How true it is that the greatest blessing of life is that we can love – and we can be loved. In the beginning, as we are told, there was Love, only Love. And Love bethought to itself: “I am one, let me be many!” With this sankalpa, Love trod the tracks of time and entered the fields of space – and the universe was born. The entire universe is love-filled. There is not an atom that does not carry love within it. Each one of us is love. Each one of us is a holy light. Our great tragedy is that we have forgotten this truth and we keep on chasing shadow-shapes of pleasures, possessions, power. We feel we are separate from God: we have turned our back to G
