Rogue

Burning the Paper Tiger
by Kosi

Life is unpredictable. It only lives in the timeless breath of now, but mostly you move through life unaware of your breath or now—lost in the endless gyrations of your mind. As you navigate the ever-changing landscape of your life you can find yourself plodding along following the path that everyone else is following unknowingly a slave to time, desire, pleasure, and control—a slave to your own mind. Liberation is rogue. It is a radical departure from the well-worn path just about everyone on this planet is mindlessly following—a radical shift in consciousness. This shift represents reaching down deep inside crashing through the surface of your mind and all ideas of your soul to muster the uncommon courage to trust the unseen intelligence of your heart. Trusting the unseen is the path of liberation upon which very few tread. What is this unseen intelligence? And how does it end the slavery and even torturous thoughts of your own mind?

Enigma

The Great Secret of Ramana
by Kosi

The depth of Ramana Maharshi’s realization was so complete he totally transcended his physical form. As a result, he was the radiant transmission of God—a visceral tangible presence that everyone felt when sitting in his presence. Even though he left his body in April of 1950, the power of his presence can still be felt at his ashram in Tiruvannamalai India. The depth of Ramana Maharshi’s realization leaves a huge gulf between the power of his presence and just about every single western teacher who claims him as their guru. This includes HWL Poonja, better known as Papaji, the well-known guru who lived and taught in Lucknow India. What is the reason for this difference? Are their varying degrees of realization? Or is Ramana simply an enigma?

Convergence

The Great Ocean of Now
by Kosi

The thick mental fog of the genetic mind and ego can generate a sense of foreboding deeply rooted in the terror experienced when you were born into this world. It is a deep feeling that you can’t quite put your finger on that generates the sense that something is hopelessly wrong with you or a deep feeling of self-hatred. It is often experienced as a sickening feeling that coincides with the deep belief that you are hopelessly flawed, unlovable, unwanted, alone, and abandoned. This is the original sin—the exile from the paradise of Eden—the heartbreaking loss of the bliss of pure being you experienced in the womb. The death of this insidious feeling is a rebirth into the bliss of your being—the dramatic return to the source or pure consciousness. This sounds wonderful, but exactly how do you break free of the torture of self-hatred?

Birth of God
by Kosi

The birth of Jesus was the advent of a seismic shift in consciousness—the birth of God. He had a sacred destiny; to bear witness to the living truth—the eternal presence that transcends death. Jesus is God—the omniscience that is both human and divine—a quantum leap in consciousness—an Avatar. He set the world on fire with a new conversation that has been the source of controversy for centuries. His miraculous birth was heralded by angel who proclaimed, “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord’—the prophesized Messiah—the messenger. Is this a religious message or does it transcend religion entirely? What exactly does the birth of Jesus have to do with the teaching of Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi?

Love

The Ruthless Power of Bhakti Yoga
by Kosi

Love is a word that can evoke many different meanings. It is usually associated with the deep feeling of affection for someone else or the pleasure derived from something you really enjoy—like ice cream or your favorite object—your diamond ring. Love is also a word for a special relationship or sexual bond with someone else. It is a word that connotes two instead of one—it is predicated on you and other or you and something that you love. Love of God is devotion, but is devotion the same the same as the human emotion of love or something else? What is the real nature of Bhakti or love of God?

Judgment

The Genetics of Suffering

One of the great powers of your mind is to judge, to discern, and in the relative sense, use this powerful movement of your mind to make informed decisions based on your perspective about what you perceive to be right versus wrong. It is a natural power of your mind that enables you to navigate through the great illusion known as the world. Survival is simply not possible without this force of nature deeply engrained in your physical form. The mind is fundamentally wired for survival—it is genetic. The ego combined with the mind is the neurological and biological construct that enables you to survive. Ego is simply essential for survival. But is survival the nature of suffering? Does survival have anything to do with suffering? Is survival and the power of judgment a form of bondage?

Ruthless

The Path of Liberation
By Kosi

The path of liberation is ruthless. It demands a deep unwavering commitment to the vast invisible omniscience alive in your heart. This commitment represents the end of excuses.  It is the profound humbling of your mind—a deep surrender to the vast indescribable unseen omniscience of God—a ruthless truth-telling and complete relinquishment of whatever it is you think you want. The natural tendency of mind is to conjure up all kinds of reasons to ignore, or not even notice, the omniscience we collectively refer to as God. The mind tends to doubt this unseen…

Atonement

The Radical Power of Forgiveness
By Kosi

Atonement is a word that contains a mysterious power. It symbolizes the crucifixion of Jesus Christ—a cross over in consciousness—a return to the living eternal truth in the core of your being. Atonement is a radical power—the living foundation of forgiveness. In life one of the greatest challenges we face is to atone or forgive especially when you know you are right and the other person is wrong. The fight to be right makes it almost impossible to forgive. Perhaps forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood words in the dictionary. What does it really mean to forgive or atone?

FEAR

Seeing Beyond the Illusion of You
By Kosi

Fear is the raw human emotion that has the innate power to keep you trapped in the prison of the mind. The genetics of your mind, or the genetic mind, is the deeply ingrained survival mechanism of your physical body combined with your five senses and your natural capacity to think. The impulse to run or hide is in effect the hard-wired survival mechanism deeply ingrained in the physiology of your body and mind. This natural survival instinct can keep you running and hiding your entire life. But what exactly is fear and how can you break free of its invisible clutches?

Loss

Overcoming the Pain of Heartbreak
by Kosi

Loss is part of life. It is deeply interwoven with the constantly changing unfolding tapestry of you and your life. It is simply inevitable that you will lose something precious or someone you love—a close friend, a parent, or a beloved pet. It is painful. Loss is especially painful if it is sudden and unexpected. The shock of losing someone you love can leave you feeling empty, alone, and even violated. Loss of any kind can be devastating and even a debilitating experience. But have you ever wondered what causes this pain? How can you overcome the heartbreak of loss and the sadness and despair it is known to generate?
