Welcome to our insightful journey of exploration. In this blog, titled “Question: Exploring 7 Common Questions & Answers,” we dive deep into seven common questions, providing answers that shed light on various aspects of our topic. Let’s embark on this enlightening quest together. So, if you’ve ever pondered a burning question, you’re in the right place to find some well-informed answers.
Question: How to Open the Heart?
Answer: The heart opens as we increase the capacity of friendship. If we have an authentic friendship, the more we give without expectations, then the heart will open. Consciously or unconsciously, directly or indirectly, if we make friendship into business “I have done this so I should get this” then the friendship diminishes and the whole thing becomes a business. Also the heart opens more and more when the trust in existence increases. By understanding that existence takes care of even ants, birds, and all creatures, we realize that as humans, it will also take care of us. Our basic needs will be met. If we don’t have this trust, then we become reserved, protective. Anything which feels like a threat to security, by a number of ways we would try to say certain words, express anger, manipulate things. The root behind this is safety.
Until we break this barrier, the heart is closed. So the more we break down these barriers, the more the heart opens. Also doing any one thing every day, just giving without expecting anything in return. Helping anyone, no name, fame, money, not waiting for the other to say “Wow, you are such a nice person.” You could go and give flowers to somebody who is not feeling well. If a beggar comes to you, talk nicely to him or give him a hug, you don’t have to give money. Or being a friend, if you are on a train with somebody, taking care that the person also feels comfortable. If you are in a queue, don’t think “I am so important that I can jump the queue.”
Any one thing which you enjoy, just doing it without any expectation, will increase the friendship, thus result in a more open heart. If we stop manipulation, the heart opens more and more. If we follow Yam, Nyam as in the yogic tradition, non-violence, speaking truth, not killing anyone, even the creatures or even the ants, when we take a shower and we see so many ants, doing our best to protect them. Small things, but it counts. That shows our state of consciousness. A good practice I have done for this is living on Bhiksha. This means you live on alms offered to you by others.
You do sadhana and for food you go begging and at each house ask for one chapati (bread) or whatever they can give or beg in the street with a begging bowl. Whatever you get, you eat, if you don’t get anything then you don’t eat. This brings a trust in existence, knowing that we are taken care of. Try it for a day or even for 41 days and see. These things will bring big change and more and more realism and automatically the heart opens more.
Question: Can we use sex to increase our awareness?
Answer: Anything we do with awareness increases our awareness. If I move my hand with awareness, I’m increasing my awareness. If I do any action without awareness, I am decreasing my awareness. The same applies for sex. Remain a witness, you are not doing it, the body is doing it. Be highly sensitive throughout the entire process, and proceed at a pace that allows you to experience awareness more and more. It is not a rule to be slow in sex, but with any action done slowly it is easier to be deeply aware. So yes, by all means, sex can be used to increase awareness.
And the deepening of one’s sexual experiences will provide greater fulfillment, leading to an automatic increase in their general awareness. By having awareness in it, it will transform you from sexuality. Then it will not be a repression, you will be uplifted from it, you will be beyond the need for sex. So you can use sex as a tool to increase awareness and the result of that awareness will also be the transformation of sexuality. Manifesting Desires through Sex.
Question: I have a question about making love. I have heard that a couple with high awareness during sex and orgasm can make a request or wish for anything they desire. Just as before meditation or before entering a dream. How can you use sex to manifest a desired outcome, request the Universe, or God to fulfill your desires? For example, desires like a better salary, to get a better job, to get a better lover. Or more global desire, to make all people happy or to help people?
Answer: As I explained before, these days we are not making love, we are outsourcing the process of making love to servants. And that’s happening because the mind is coming in “I’m this, you are that.” So in this process if the mind comes, then there’s no heart to heart meeting. Then fulfilling such desires is definitely out of question. As mind comes, partners get together and they are dreaming of getting a better house, better job, or while being together they are thinking of another partner. Then the point is lost and manifesting desires would never happen. As I heard from Veeresh, Osho said that 90% of problems of human beings are between our two big toes. So if 90% of problems are related to sexuality, then the rest is very little.
You all are here doing mystic rose because in a way you are not making love very well. If you are having good sex, no need of mystic rose, no need of coming here and attending workshops. If one is sexually uplifting, his ambitions will come down, his need for money will come down. Uplifting sex, balancing ambitions, money, and desires leads to a good life. Then you are automatically more ecstatic, more vibrant, more total in whatever you do. So in that sense you can say, if you can make love very well, in a way that it actually uplifts you from sex, you could say that you could make more money, you can get a better job, you can get a better apartment, but that is due to that level of fulfilment. If one truly knows how to be intimate and by that uplifts his sexuality.
But if the question is solely based on the process of making love and by that you can access certain channels and from those channels you can bring more wealth or fulfil more desires, this doesn’t happen. In Tantra there are Kriyas by which, for example, you can bring food from a 7 star hotel in London if you want. I only heard of it, I have not done anything like that myself, but I have reasons to believe that it is possible. In certain processes, like Dhara, a Sadhu invites people, and they serve food to whoever comes. I know of occasions where the food was almost over, but with just one tantra practice more food is added. You put a plate in a corner and offer this to deities, then food doesn’t finish. It’s possible.
As I mentioned before, tantra includes Kriyas where one can change the forms of objects. For example, these bells can be changed into a sweet. There are Aghore kriyas where the sweet does not finish or get over. These kriyas still exist, there are some Aghoris who still do it. One time I had one Aghore who was keeping his Kapali (a head sculpture of any human being) and from that he was pouring alcohol to others and it was not getting over. These things are possible, but what is the real gain in it? Existence takes care of your needs anyways if you start to trust in it. This all might sound very foreign to you, but these are old sciences. You might not believe it until you see it. I myself didn’t believe it until I saw examples of it. Nowadays we know about airplanes.
We have seen them flying and we were flying as passengers ourselves. If third world war would start and everything gets destroyed, only some tribes in jungles might be saved and we might disappear and the ones flying airplanes disappear. Then the people living in the jungle would tell their kids, “There used to be airplanes like that 30, 40 years back.” Two generations later their people recall, “Our forefathers told us there once used to be airplanes like that. They have seen them, but we just heard from them.” Then the third generation comes and that generation would say, “Our fathers forefathers told us there once used to be airplanes like that.” And by then most people won’t believe it. ” I haven’t seen them, how do I know?”
In ancient India there used to be so many Vidyas like that. Those were the days. We used to have Garud. We used to have arrows that would hit their target and come back. There used to be a mantra for that. Apparently in the war of Mahabharat, they all got destroyed. Modern science makes new findings about the past. Then the theory changes. Newton’s theory got changed, Einstein’s got changed too. Tomorrow something else will change. Because these findings are on the level of the physical body and intellect, or to some extent the emotional bodies, but they don’t go beyond. So it’s a matter of us practicing kriya or witnessing it, only then we know. Curing Cancer by Making Love
Question: I have heard that it’s possible to cure cancer by making love?
- Answer: This is true. It’s possible. There are a number of people in India who do this. They are from the Tantra tradition. So in the process of making love, that Tantric will make love with the person whom he is going to cure. There are souls which are unsatisfied and they need a body to fulfil those desires. So these souls enter into these people for the experience. I know one person in Gujarat, he does it. So in his body a soul enters and then he makes love. I know one person who went to him, she had cancer. She was an elderly woman and for her this was an absolutely inappropriate idea, but he cured his kids as well and his sons girlfriends by making love. So the children convinced the mother that, “It’s okay, you do it for us. We want you to remain in the body and don’t leave us right now. He will be able to cure you from cancer” He made love with her and then some bleeding happened, which he explained to her would happen, and with this the tumours came out with the bleeding. She was cured and she’s healthy now.
- But there is a risk with this type of people. He kept her son under his control. He inserted a soul into the lady’s son. I cured him, that’s how I came to know of this story. I then verified with other people that he was doing this type of work. He didn’t want to let go of the son but control him mainly for financial gain. A year later I also came to know that his girlfriend is still affected by him and he controls her. So her life is miserable. He cured her from one thing but he also controlled her so he can make love with her often. In the name of curing her she would visit frequently. So even if one has this power to cure, there are crooks like this as well and one should be careful. I recently learned about his girlfriend, and by relieving her from the negative charge, or in other words, by removing the inserted soul, she’ll be fine. Not a big deal. So yes, you can cure cancer and many other diseases, but you should find the right person. Someone you can trust, who will not overtake your body or insert a soul or entity like this. It’s a very complicated difficult thing to know so it’s extremely important to have the right person if you go for this type of healing.
Question: How can we make our own decisions and not depend on others?
Answer: The more we reach our inner space, in the state of meditation we touch that inner space, and an inner voice will speak with clarity. To begin with, any question you might have, ask yourself and ideally do it after sitting in meditation or if that’s not possible when in a state of calmness, in a peaceful atmosphere where you can be easily aware. You could do a little bit of breath work or pranayam, then sit quietly for two minutes and then ask the question. Give options like yes or no and whatever the first answer is, this is our inner voice. Initially we will be confused, “Is this right or not right.” More and more you start working on yourself asking yourself in this way and stop asking others, the voice will be more and clearer. Confusion will be less.
We should not force anything from inside either. If the voice, whatever comes, says option one, then we stick to option one, not option two. Generally we have a tendency to lean towards whatever we want the answer to be and would say, “No, no, no, maybe this answer came first.” And then when you ask again both voices will sound the same. Could be this or could be that, both sound the same. You just ask once without sabotaging yourself and whatever comes first, trust that. Even if we make mistakes, it’s still worth it. This way we learn the art of having our own answers and stop borrowing from others. The more we practice this and introspect, the voice will be clearer, clearer, clearer. The more we meditate, the clearer the voice. This is how you come to your own answers.
Question: How to Increase Creative Power?
Answer: Creativity comes if the mind is at ease. If the mind is peaceful. Mind can be peaceful if the body is pure. If the body is having pain, physical pain or emotional pain, then the attention would be there. Then the creativity disappears because attention is on pain or struggle. As this gets removed then it’s natural for creativity to happen. For different types of work there are different yogic methods, but the fundamentals remain the same, the first thing is the purification of the body and then the transformation of negative thoughts into positive. So what we covered in the past week, how to purify the body, how to purify the thoughts and emotions, it will result in creativity.
